okay, here's the catch tally again.
Chen: IISuwako: IIMystia: IIAya: Medicine Melancholy: IIISanae: and for Touhou we can't get yet:Hina: I
We've got a winner folks.
I'll go out MM-catching later tonight. Think of a nickname in the meantime, folks, I want all of our Touhoes to have nicknames if Zesty has one.
Alright, so we head off to where we first found Medicine, and the first Touhou we run into is an Aya.
Not being interested in a tabloid subscription we promptly thrash her.
and then a Sanae.
and then a Chen.
and then a Mystia
Of course because now that we want to find Medicine, we can't.
heyyy, there we go!
and we catch it, after taking an honestly pretty heavy beating.
I love how her 'Dex entry totally glosses over her being genocidal.
Rei the Medicine everybody.
Whelp let's take a look at her stats and whatnot.
"Jolly Nature". Jolly because she can now kill without consequence. Also she's holding a Pecha berry. Sense of dramatic irony, I guess?
she's literally so venomous that she can poison by contact. I am not even remotely surprised.
kinda annoyed she only knows two moves though. Hopefully she'll learn some better ones as we go on.
I'm actually gonna stop this installment here and then go grind her up a little bit. I'll post again when she's at a bit higher a level.
current party members:
Zestpoole the Sakuya: Perfect & Stab-Happy Maid
Rei the Medicine: Semicompetent Genocidalist
actually I"m not going to be able to do even that, my emulator's fritzing out on me.
So I suppose I'll resume tomorrow.
But nothing will ever convince me that Rei is not genocidal. Look at her.
Any thoughts so far? I'll try to get at least one update in today, but I just got a copy of Civilization III gifted to me on Steam. So I may be busy for several hours.
I think Rei is pure poison, actually. No, I'm just a moron.
And yes he does. Chibi Aya.
Not sure how much I'll get done tonight tbh, I gotta watch my little brothers.
No update today guys, sorry. I have a pounding headache and my emulator's lagging and I just don't feel like dealing with it right now.
I did grind Rei up a level though. Yay.
There's actually going to be an update today, woo!
Hopefully I'll get shit done. But first a snack, and then some grinding.
Short update for now, longer one later, most likely.
So while we were out grinding, I realized something.
I never got the town map from Gary's sister.
Yes, despite what he tells you, you can, in fact, get the map from her.
thank you, Daisy!*
now for some more grinding.
some tedious, tedious, tedious grinding.
Rei is in that magical zone of suckage where she's not strong enough to easily win fights with Touhou a good two or three levels below her, but she's too strong to get good EXP when she does.
It's very, very annoying.
And after getting Rei KO'd by a fucking Mystia, we switch to Zesty and hey, this happens.
*GARY'S SISTER HAS A NAME, WTF?!?!?!?!
cuz why the hell not. This'll help us at the first gym if nothing else. And let me just reiterate that we are not in any way taking the Pokemon Touhou League Challenge solely to spite Gary.
I make my best decision of the day and decide to say "fuck you" to grinding. We're doing this shit the hard way, ladies and gents....
ah right, advancing. Progress. Good. Yes.
fuck this tree.
so after checking the grass before that infamous forest passage to see if there was anything interesting (there wasn't), this happened:
Rei is a spiteful bitch sometimes.
Now, let's enter the forest. Ah, but let's talk to these folks first. They may have something of note to say.
What about you, Miss Bowlcut?
Right so...I guess the concept of greeting someone is foreign in Kanto. Well, whatever. I guess it's honestly kind of our fault for initiating conversation, but it just seems like everyone always has a piece of random useless advice to give y--actually now that I think about it that way this is the most realistic game I've ever seen.
IT'S MOTHER-FUCKING FOREST TIME BITCHES HELL YEAH
let's talk to this kid in the yellow hat (you'll find he has identical twins across Kanto).
*let me know how you guys like this format of screenshot. I'm thinking it's better than cutting it across multiple pictures, personally.
As we walk around in the thick undergrowth, we encounter our first forest Touhou. I actually did have a screenshot of it, but accidentally saved over it. It's this, basically, though the sprite looks different in our version of the game:
Yeah. These guys are all based off of various fairies from the games. The most famous Touhou fairy though (Cirno) is of course, not here. Because that would just be silly. In any case, these are actually not all bug type. Chibi Star Sapphire (what you see here) is actually Water, I think.
Chibi Star S. goes down without much of a fight. I'm going to remember that, because she makes pretty good grind fodder for Rei.
Oh hey, look! A Toho Orb, I wonder what Touhou is inside it and who it belongs to?
aaaaaaaaaaaaaand, it was empty. Well whatever, free Toho Ball.
Here's another forest fairy, all I know about this one is that it's Dark type, fairly certain. We take it down in two hits, the only move it used being Leer.
and here's a Chibi Sunnymilk, I think these things are fire-type which puts us at a bit of a disadvantage here. We never do confirm my suspicions, since the thing's pretty much content to just throw sand at us until the sun goes supernova. But we take it down without actually taking any damage.
and here's what I think is the last Touhou in this forest. It's Chibi Wriggle! I think Wriggle is actually a minor Youkai rather than a fairy, but who am I to judge? Unlike the others presented here, she is in fact, Bug type. Dualtype...fighting, I think? Too. Also! Note that this Wriggle is actually male. I think this is just because of a meme, where she's sometimes referred to as the only guy in Gensokyo, because she looks so boyish in some depictions. I know some other Touhou can turn up male, too. But it's uncommon.
We're actually gonna break it off here becauuuuse!
Trainer over yonder! And I would like to make my first battle with a trainer who isn't Gary (fuck you, Gary) a separate post.
Not sure whether or not we'll get to that today.
Also! If you would like me to catch any of the Pokemon we've encountered here, just cast your vote and let me know.
CATCH TALLY -- VIRIDIAN FOREST
BRUCE LEE (my own suggestion) I,
oh you're right, I think I'm mixing up Luna with Mystia. They look similar.
'k'k one vote for Wrigglekick.
alright, I ain't got nothin' better to do right now, so let's do this shit.
come on indeed. I always found it weird that anyone with Pokemon was considered "fair game" in the games. I mean what if they're a breeder or a Pokemon Nurse or something? Oh well.
aaaaaand the very first thing he sends out is a Chibi Star Sapphire with the same level as Rei.
This can only end well.
We actually manage to take her out pretty easily (she only actually attacks once, the rest of her time is spent using Growl), which bumps Rei up to level 8.
Speaking of Rei
I feel her obsession with toxins may be approaching slightly unhealthy levels.
This ends up working in our favor though, cuz when he sends out his next Touhou, we can dust it up with Poisonpowder before bringing out the big guns.
pictured: "the big guns"
We manage to doublekick and knife his Luna into oblivion in short order, and I forgot to get a screenshot of it, but I was legitimately surprised when I noticed that his dialogue was edited slightly (in the original game he says "bugs can't hack it!" here, he says "fairies"). It's the little things that impress me, it really is.
So, we feed Rei a potion, since she kinda needs one, and head onward in search of more adventure.
and hey, wot's this here?
why it's another Fairycatcher. We could totally just be a pussy and avoid this guy, but fuck that, this is a world built around a vicious puppet-on-puppet bloodsport! LET'S DO THIS.
yeah well.....YOUR MOM, bitch!
anyway let's see what his first Touhou i....
I get the feeling this is going to become some sort of running theme.
Shockingly, this Chibi Star actually attacks, but her attacks are pathetically weak. I'm not just saying that, her Pound does as much damage as an iteration of our poison effect does. And her Bubble attack....well, Rei's half-Grass. What do you think happens?
Now, this is the part where I kick myself. Cuz he sent out a Chibi Sunnymilk, and I by all rights should've switched because hey, Fire type. But no, I kept Rei out and she ended up getting KO'd from a single burst of Ember. We probably should've been a pussy.
So, we switch to the big guns yet again.
pictured: the big guns, yet again
Now, while we were able to beat his Sunnymilk and the subsequent Luna, said Luna paralyzed Zesty (though as a note, Zesty leveled up again after KO'ing the Luna). So we've got to head on back to the Touhou center.
I'll resume this log once I do so.
so after getting refueled and buying a potion, we return to the forest where we meet this dude
wasn't really planning to, but hey, good to have an excuse.
Dude leads with a Wriggle, so you know he means fuckin' business. Rei actually manages to KO both of his Touhou (the other was another Wriggle), gaining a level in the process.
So let's go on our way and....
soooo....I'm actually going to catch this and give it a nick. Because I've never seen a Chibi Marisa in the wild, and indeed, I had no idea they were even available in the wild. I'll let you guys vote on whether or not I should keep it and, when we get that far, whether or not to change its nickname at the Name Rater's. Also note that this Marisa is male, meaning I have *the perfect* nickname for it. So I think, anyway.
After about a quadrillion (real number, look it up) tries.
Now, I was going to name it Cho, after a meme that most of you would doubtless hate me for showing you, but the Tohodex entry
makes me think of something else entirely.
I'm actually going to stop there. Cuz I want you guys to vote on whether or not I should keep Cheech and also whether or not that's a good name for him.
I may get another update in much later, but for now, Toonami's on in an hour, and I have a sacred duty to watch it.
so am I keeping him or no?
I guess we'll keep him unless someone has serious objections.
That's two votes on Wrigglekick.
Can ah getta third?
No, I'm just asking if I could get a third on Wriggle in general. :p
since that's three votes, she's in. I'll hunt for her next time. And Bruce Lee as a nickname also has the most votes right now, so that's what we'll call him/her unless something else overtakes it.
I'm actually going to do another update tonight. Dunno how long it'll be, but I'm bored. So why not?
current Team Heap Lineup:
Zestpoole the Sakuya: Perfect & Kick-Happy MaidRei the Medicine: Increasingly Competent GenocidalistCheech the Marisa: Incredibly Feminine Acid Head
Actually dudes I'm sorry I have to take that back. REEEEEEALLY tired all of a sudden.
I'll be seeing you all tomorrow.
she also has a meme called Wriggle Kick because of her tendency to surprise the player with her midboss attack. I wouldn't be surprised if she learns a kick move at some point.
