Ah, Touhou Soccer.
'tis a thing.
Also does anyone else have any other comments? I haven' been getting a ton of feedback about the LP itself, so I'm hoping I'm doing everything okay.
today, I will stuff. Update forthcoming. We may challenge Lt. Surge, not sure yet.
I'd be surprised if she doesn't learn some type of laser move like Hyper Beam
Wouldn't Zap Cannon make more sense?
Also you can apparently evolve Marisa into two different Touhoes, EXMarisa (the standard evolution) and Advent Marisa. I think we'll be shying away from the latter because eww Advent Cirno.
Here! Have a series of screenshots presented without any context or commentary whatsoever.
Yeah, I did an update. Vanilla ate it, and I am pretty fucking pissed about it because it was a long update and I spent almost two hours about it. If you have any questions, I'll answer them. But that is all I'm doing for this.
I try to put some actual effort into something and my internet connection decides to go to shit. This is a metaphor, I'm sure.
I may be done with this Lets Play. This is just the straw breaking the camel's back, here. I don't know what to say anymore, I'm not funny, and I doubt any of you find this at all interesting. So I don't fucking know. It'll depend.
I don't have word.
I have Wordpad, but I tried that once and it got all screwed up.
It pasted, but the words got spaced out all weird and then I had to reupload the images anyway. I'm not sure what caused it.
I think that was the update immediately after the last time I lost one.
Alright, I am not going to quit and be "that guy".
I am going to wait awhile before I attempt to do another update though.
At least a regular one. In the meantime, I have an idea to keep things interesting.
Welcome to Let's Play Tohomon: Bizarro Edition!
Hmm, where are we?
Is that my rival? I bet she's an asshole. Fuck you, Gary stand-in.
Wait...why is she being nice.
I....I guess so?
What the hell does that mean?!
Oh, no this is called a "Battle", you see.
Ah well, Zestpoole, let's kick her a..
YOU ARE NOT ZESTPOOLE
THAT IS NOT ZESTPOOLE EITHER
Oh, thank goodness.
Just some bizarre hallucination.
We should really stop eating those mushrooms Cheech finds on the ground, that might end up having serious conseque--

No, it's just that Merry Version's rival sprite is the same as the Tomboy sprite for Blue Version.
In fact, I think in Merry Version you can be the Tomboy too, and then your rival is the Lady/Maribel sprite.
Then I must keep using it until it becomes funny again
Then we will name it
Okay, going to try for an actual update now.
To recap what was deleted last time. We went into what is in a normal game Diglett's cave (here, Yamame's cave) and caught some touhoes for the heck of it.
edit: Oh, and we got the Vs. Seeker, but I forgot to screencap that.
First thing's first, we've got some business to take care of.
Yeah, we picked up Ju. She's level 16 now. So, still way, way, way behind the rest of our crew, but better than she was before. And she knows Faint Attack now, so she can actually battle.
I am going to try to grind her up a bit, and then we'll challenge Lt. Surge. What do you think about that, random Meiling?
So we battle some trainers. I really just love this one kid's setup.
CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEN! It is his only Touhou.
I should note that Ju managed to take this Chen--one five levels above her, mind--down in only a few hits. Perhaps I have underestimated the darkness Youkai.
After getting her up to 18, I figure we can enter the Electric Gym now.
Let's have a chat with MOTIVATIONAL GUY
hellzyeah let's do this.
Hmm, these things almost look like trashcans, surely I don't have to do something retarded like hunt around for a pair of hidden switches that need to be pressed one after the other and if you fuck up they reset, right?
nnnnnope, that's exactly what we gotta do. But first let's battle the grunts here.
If I had a nickel for every time I read a phrase in a Pokemon game to the effect of "a CHILD? battling POKEMON? PREPOSTEROUS!" I'd....well I'd have about $20, probably. But still, it comes up a lot for a world where leaving on your own at age 10 to participate in a glorified version of cockfighting is apparently the norm.
Also why would a sailor be in an Electric-type gym, exactly? Those usually use water Pokemon/Touhou/whatever.
Oh but no, this guy is DIFFERENT. He is a REBEL who doesn't PLAY by the RULES.
He's also a complete idiot. Because his only two Touhou are Lunas, and they both go down to Ju, who is four levels below them. Ju, on her part, gains a level and learns Bite (replacing her rather useless Tackle attack).
So hey, let's try out Generic-looking Middle-Aged Dude over here.
Really? You're a lightweight? I am not sure if this guy means that he doesn't weigh a lot (which I don't buy) or that he can't hold a lot of alcohol (which I really don't buy), either way, he's lying.
Whatever, let's kick this guy's ass.
Ohay it's an Iku. Well at least he has good taste.
Iku are heavy-duty, slow Electric-types. The character they're based on is probably the only likable Celestial in all of Touhou. Unfortunately, Ju can't quite handle this one, and is knocked out. So we send out Lee to finish up the job.
His next Touhou is another Luna. No surprises there, she's quickly taken down by Lee.
The last guy in this gym other than the leader himself is this older gentleman whose name I imagine is something along the lines of "Ebenezer" or "Horace" or "Eugene".
He claims to have been a subordinate of Surge's, but he looks way older than Surge. So how does that work, exactly? I mean, I could see if the age difference was less drastic, but this guy is at least in his sixties. How old was Surge when he entered the army, five?
Well I admittedly did not see this coming.
Luckily, Lee is able to take her down fairly easily. Also I was sort of on the mark, dude's name is Tucker.
Now, let's challenge the big boss. After solving this hilariously tedious puzzle, which I am not going to screencap because so boring.
Alright, now if patterns have told me anything (and patterns always tell you things where Touhou is involved) I am going to get swept by one of this guy's Touhoes, and then come back in an hour and a half and sweep him. I am going to endeavor to skip that first part today.
Again with the "why is a kid here?" speech? Seriously?
We haven't even battled yet! For all you know I could have an entire party of Level 80 Ground-types.
And he opens with....a Lunachild.
No originality anymore, I tell you. Oh and it knows Double Team, lovely.
Luckily! Our own Derpy Lily knows "being awesome" (and also Swift, which never misses, and Barrage)
Now here's where things are going to get....interesting.
Yeah. Level 28.
That's...a bit nuts. And it completely wipes out Cheech with Twister, which it knows for some freaking reason.
Time to bring out the big guns.
See, this is why Zesty is "the big guns".
...and it defrosts literally the same turn and uses Thunder Wave.
Well whatever, we're able to take her down.
I wonder what his next Touhou can....
I call bullshit.
I'm sorry, I just do.
This is worse than Lance.
On the other hand, it sends his Marisa's own Special Attack plummeting. So that's one good thing.
aww yeah. Suck it.
What do you think, Motivational Guy?
do you know a dude named Haven by any chance, Motivational Guy?
Anyway, that's all for this update.
I'm going to go do some grinding and general poking around, I'll update if anything cool happens.
Alright, quick update before I leave for the night.
Today we're going to board the SS Anne, but not before getting roped into a battle with a random old dude, right?
Oh hey, his first Touhou is Daiyousei.
It's another Fairy evolution, which it evolves into if its ATK and DEF are equal. Thing knows Smile, which cuts our ATK stat pretty badly. Oh and it knows Weather Ball (yes, the Castform attack) too, for some reason.
He also has a Chibi Koishi, Koishi being the little sister of the Satori we caught earlier.
Anyway, onto the boat.
I always thought it was weird that they say you "flash" your ticket. How do you flash a ticket? (Similar phrasing is used for things like "flash a badge" or whatever, I just find it semantically weird, though I'm not sure if it actually is.)
Right, so now that we're onboard we can finally relax and take a break from all this pointless bloodshed and battling, right?
Well what are your opinions on this, random French stereotype?
couldn't have said it better myself.
Eh, whatever, let's beat some dudes up for money.
oh god it's an otaku
run, Natalie, run!
and his first Touhou is a catgirl. This gets better and better.
Rin's a new face here, I don't really know much about her since I think she's from Subterranean Animism which is not a game I am really interested in. I recall her being Ghost-type though which makes having Ju up front a happy coincidence. She goes down in a single hit, and his second Touhou (the exact same one, I might add) also does.
When you beat him, he says "my...my friends....". Personally, I think he should say "mai....mai waifus...."
In the next cabin over, we meet someone who is either a nurse or a hooker.
Depends on what she means by "a short rest", I suppose.
Gonna cut it off there for today. Sorry it was so short, but I have to go to work soon. I have off tomorrow so I'll try to get a bigger one in tomorrow.
Alright dudes, so um. Bit of an announcement.
I have been playing Tohomon Blue Version so far, but there is a way, way way more extensive hack called Touhou Puppetplay v1.8 Enhanced (long title, I'm aware).
If I can get it to work, I may start playing that.
Now, if you guys like, I can continue doing the LP of Tohomon Blue co-currently with my playthrough of Puppet Play, or, I can switch to LP'ing Puppet Play.
Totally your decision, I don't much mind either way. I know Puppet Play changes up a lot of typings and everyone has quintillions of evolutions and the plot is different and new music and etc. But I don't know if you guys want to sit through a third of the game again.
So, it's your call either way. Just thought I'd toss the option out there.
I'm actually no longer considering doing an LP of Puppet Play.
Why? Because I am in way over my head in terms of difficulty here.
You won't find a ROM for it. You have to grab an .IPS file and then use the program that comes with said file to patch it into an existing Pokemon FireRed ROM.
There's a video tutorial on how to do that, though.
and yes you have to A) keep the VisualBoy open the entire time and B) physically drag and drop the ROM file after you patch it. No, I didn't know you could do that either.
Also, as a heads-up the first starter battle is completely unwinnable unless you know a little trick common to all Pokemon games.
You can't "just use a patcher" here, I tried it. Doesn't work. You have to follow that video exactly or you'll just end up with a differently-named copy of Pokemon FireRed.
I don't have a direct link on hand, but it's one of the many, many mediafire links on this site, basically the only one that's not dead or set to private.
Pokemon Puppet Play v 1.8 Enhanced is what you are looking for.
Also the starters are Sanae, Reisen, and Alice instead of Sakuya, Marisa, and Raymoo.
Yes it is, I was ranting about it earlier, and for some reason the hack's creator has forbid a ROM-capable version from being made.
I dunno, anyway follow the video and you'll be fine.
sorry I didn't get one in yesterday.
Anywah, let's go fuck up cruise passengers with our Touhoes, but first, something interesting I noticed.
We must be like that chick who draws Johnny Wander or something, because everyone up to and including our own mother seems to think we're a boy.
Oh! I would like you all to meet the only guy in this entire ship game to have a reasonable reaction to a random teenage girl entering into his living-space uninvited.
Which isn't to say we're not going to kick his ass--we totally are--but he seems to have just slightly more going on upstairs than some of the other guys here.
I didn't bother screencapping the battle because he just has another Rin and another Chen, who we both take out really easily. So there's no point in doing so.
Relatedly, Ju gained another level. When the hell does she evolve? She's at 22 and still chibi.
Our next targets are what appears to be a single mother and her two children.
her daughter seems to be the kind of person who, in the real world, would have a parrot as a pet, and then send it back to buy a toucan instead because a parrot is just not exotic enough
she is the 1%.
Her first Touhou is uh...
I....genuinely do not recognize this character. I'm not sure if I'm just having a brainfart right now or what. Probably a brainfart.
Her other Touhoe is Nazrin
we beat her easily. Since she's Nazrin.
Her trainer then laments that her Touhous' exotica alone is not enough to get them to win battles. To which I am forced to wonder if the girl has ever had a Touhou battle before. Judging by the absolutely obscene amount of money we just got from that fight, I'm guessing not.
Let's check out what the brat has to say
ANOTHER FUCKING OTAKU
well he only has one Touhou, I assume it can't be anything too ba--
Apparently our opponent is much like Spike, in that he likes women who could kick his ass.
The Momiji turns out to be a decently tough opponent (and it knows Detect, so that shield's not just for show), but we manage to best her.
So now, I'm just gonna kind of casually take this
Yes. Found, this is what we will tell the authorities if questioned.
Dude in the next cabin over has no interest in fighting
but is apparently totally willing to tell us that he's an undercover cop. Well, now we know who not to peddle that stolen TM to.
Upstairs, we run into our first Fisherman opponent (I think, anyway)
yeah, that's a Hina.
Hina is Magikarp in this game. She does get good later on (she basically turns into Muk) but she absolutely sucks earlier on in the game. Plus, you can only catch them at like, level five I think.
After defeating him (his other Touhou were a Chibi Komachi and Iku, if you are curious) we set our sights on the item orb on the other end of the room, but that gentleman is watching too.
We know what we must do.
oh, he seems to be a vampire, too.
one with a single, really crappy Rin as his entire fighting force.
Okay, well whatever. Let's see what we've got here.
Well shit, it seems we are now RICH AS FUCK.
Going to stop this update here while I bask in my new RICH AS FUCKness.
More seriously, gonna clean out the rest of the cabins while I still have some time before work. If anything interesting happens I'll try to screencap it.
