Been working on this.
Wingull, Machop, Solrock, Minun, Numel, Rhyhorn, Poochyena, Spoink
Having lost my data from my PC (curses!) I decide it's time for a nostalgia trip, so I decide to pick up my catridge and DS Lite, and play some Pokemon Emerald. Hell Yeah.
So I name myself, and Birch is all like "WELCOME TO TEH WORLDZ OF POKEMANS LULZ", and suddenly I'm in a moving truck. It's now that I can that I remember that I detest D-pads. I wish I could play this on my 3DS. ;/
Now NotMom is talking to me, and she drags me inside to set a clock that NotDad bought me. I set it to the incorrect time, because yes. I also withdraw a potion which is conveniently in my PC. I have no idea why, as I have no Pokemon yet, but ok.
Then I come downstairs and NotMom is all like "LOOK KIDDO THERES A THING ON TV." So I walk up and it ends. Curse You, slow walking speed! I think I need Running Shoes that I can use in the house! NotMom dismisses this issue and tells me to go bug the neighbours. Hmph.
I decide to follow orders, and walk into the neighbour's house. When I enter, this lady goes all "!" and gets up from her seat, probably to get mad at me. Naturally, since this is a video game after all, she doesn't. She just tells me to go upstairs and meet her daughter.
And there's nothing upstairs but a Pokeball. I didn't know her daughter was a Pokemon. That's weird, she must be adopted. I go to check it out, when this weird chick comes in the room, asking me who I am!
I tell her because apparently my ingame persona is [acrnoym=I'm a smartass and friendly. Don't ask how that mixes.]dumb and friendly[/acronym] and she tells me her name is May and she's "glad to meet me". Oh boy, I'm making friends. She also tells me she wants to be friends with Pokemon all around the world. Lame, I want to enslave them and do battle, what trainer doesn't? Other than May, obviously. She then pulls a "Oh no gotta help Daddy with something!" and goes and sits on her computer, ignoring me. Some friend.
Well, this town is boring, let's vamoose. I head up a bit, and see the Professor being chased by.... a Zigzagoon? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ho ho ho pfffft!!! What a lamer. He's screaming for help, I better give some assistance.... ha ha ha!
I pulled out a random Pokeball from the bag, and released a Mudkip. The Zigzagoon was startled and turned towards the Mudkip. I shouted "TACKLE WAR!" and a Tackle War ensued, Mudkip being the victor because LOL LEVEL 2 ZIGZAGOON!!! Sorry Birch, you're never going to live this down.
All of a sudden I'm in Birch's lab. Apparently it's later, ok. Birch tells me that I have NotDad's blood in my veins, and let's me keep the Mudkip. I name it Seth because like Seth, Mudkip is the epitome of broken. They're also both guys so yay. He then forcibly makes me go visit May. Let's leave this town. Again! But first, stats!
I don't know or care about nature so I don't know if Careful is good or not. Ok.
So, I head out to see May, when suddenly ENCOUNTER! Eep! It's a hideous worm thing! Seth! Kill it! Eew! It's webbing you! Kill it!!! Oh, a critical hit? Way to go Seth! Oh no! There's another one?! Seth! Spam Tackle! Kill it! It's a 3HKO! And a level up too!
Seth learned Mud-Slap! Yay, I guess.
I arrive in this town, and see this shopkeeper guy. He tells me he works at a Pokemon Mart, and brings me the the local one, telling to "look for the blue roof", saying they sell Poke Balls. He then gives me a Potion, what a bro!
I decide to go in, because I'd like to start my adventure and get some Poke Balls. So when I go to the shopkeeper inside, he says "We're sold out!" and practically makes the "U MAD" face at me. PokeMarts suck.
Now that I'm enraged, I decide it's a good time to go see May! I head north and talk to her. She seemed wrapped up in her study, so when I tapped her on the shoulder she pulled the great "!" like her mom and turned towards me, friendly as ever. She challenges me to a duel, saying she'll give ne a taste of what being a trainer is like. Except she's a total newbie, what with a level 5 Treecko. Naturally it's Tackle Time. Seth makes a clean 4HKO, with the fourth hit (when Treecko had a small bit of HP left) being a critical. Argh! Oh well, Seth leveled again.
May tells me I'm pretty good and gives me some cash. In reality, we both suck, I just suck less. May then tells me I can befriend any Pokemon easily, and starts racing me back to the lab. She can win, I have to visit the Pokecenter. But, being a nice girl, she waits outside the Pokecenter for me. Such a sweetie. Actually I take that back. After I leave, she tells me to hurry and starts sprinting home. :/ I don't have Running Shoes yet!
So I make it to the lab and see May and Birch. Birch gives me a useless it- I mean a Pokedex. It's nice, I guess. May gave me a much better gift, Poke Balls. Now it's time to leave this town. Again! Again!
But NotMom stops me before I can, saying "UR POKEMON IS SOOOOO CAYOOOTE, HAVE SOME RUNNING SHOEZ!!!!1"
Wait. Running Shoes? Yes! This will make the outdoor parts of the game so much more convenient! Thanks NotMom, bye!
So I run right through Oldale town right into Route 102, ready to take on the world, and maybe catch a Poochyena. But no, some Youngster hooligan has to stop me because he wants to battle. Douche. And I can't say no to his challenge. Balls. Thankfully, I 2HKO his only Pokemon, with a critical hit. No damage taken, yeah! Also level up!
So I decide to resume my run, when I'm interrupted by another kid! He's dressed like some insect catcher, complete with net. He has goddamn Wurmples. :/ Thankfully Seth can 2HKO each of them, and they never bothered to actively attack Seth. This game is easy, lol.
The next guy I come up to says he's a beginner. That's OK, he's probably better than May. Seth takes his Zigzagoon rather easily, but takes 6 HP's damage in the process. Also levelup.
He then pulls out a Taillow, which is only level 3, and goes down in two hits without me taking damage. Ok. He then tells me he thought he could beat me. Silly kid.
I pick the Oran & Pecha berries behind him because berries are wonderful things.
I run around in the grass a bit, having Seth kill some Wurmples until I find my Poochyena, a female whom I caught in one pokeball throw, undamaged. I name it Nailah because it's a wolf. Yeah.
Nailah proves to be weak against even Mudkip scrubs, being reduced to second attack after 1 String Shot and only 6HKOing. Thankfully AI is retarted and String Shots Nailah like 5 times before finally attacking. Also, perhaps more thankfully, Lotads exist and can be easy grind bait for Nailah because lolastonish. Still, 6HKOing before Growl sucks. She did level though.
Still, Nailah needs more work! After a quick heal it's nore grinding for me. More Lotads show up, yes! If only they didn't make Nailah flinch a bunch with Astonish.. After two Nailah leveled again.
Nailah also learned Howl. Yay.
Anyway, describing my encounters is TEDIOUS and BORING and for now I will stop. You can still see levels though. I also battled CRAZY SHROOMISH LADY with level 6 Nailah. I hate that Shroomish, it cost me a Potion...
Well, now that Poochyena's caught up, let's go to Petalburg for more than jusy a Pokecenter visit. I decide to go to the gym and visit NotDad. He says he's looking forward to me being a trainer, when we're interrupted by some kid asking for a Pokemon. NotDad tells me to go help him catch a Pokemon. Yaaay, tutorial in disguise time! I watch Wally catch a Ralts. That's right, a damn Ralts. Good thing I don't have one drafted or I would steal it. Anyway, we go back to the gym and NotDad tells me "you must be stronger to fight me. Go forth and train.". Petalburg sucks too, let's get out of here.
So as I'm leaving, this guy with Badass Shades comes up to me, and asks me if I'm a Pokemon Trainer. Then he calls me a rookie, and says he looking for talented trainers. Apparently that's not me. What a self esteem booster. Asshat. Whatever, let's press on!
I go to the next route, beating trainers with Nailah. I somehow come across a Magikarp which is faster than Nailah. The hell?
There's also some berries, which I grab.
After about 10 minutes of searching the grass, I find my target, a Wingull. I catch it on the second try and name it Lex.
Lex definitely needs to be trained to catch up with Seth and Nailah.
After defeating a mere two wild Pokemon on Route 102, Lex is level 4.
I then decide to take Lex to the Petalburg Woods and train there. While I'm around there, I grab some items. A hidden potion, a PARLYZ HEAL, and a Poke Ball on route 104.
Anyway, training results.
Now that Lex is competent enough to fight, let's do what we're supposed to be doing. Uh... what were we supposed to be doing? Oh yeah, NotDad said TRAIN MOAR AND FACE MEH. I remember. Let's go to Rustburo.
So about halfway through the woods I see this guy in a green suit, searching for Shroomish, which he "really loves". I agree, mushrooms are delicious. Suddenly, some guy in a cool costume comes over and says he was going to ambush green suit guy. Green suit guy runs behind me and pushes me forward, into a battle with cool costume guy!
He sends out his only pokemon, a level 9 Poochyena. I send out Lex, ready to destroy. I open up with... growl because I missed the right command. Thankfully, Poochyena counters with Howl, leaving me at no loss. Now, Lex confuses Poochyena. It hits, but seems to have no effect as Poochyena tackles Lex regularly. Lex throws a water gun and reduces the Poochyena to less than half health. The Poochyena, still confused, tackles Lex regularly, again! Lex then uses Water Gun and finishes the battle on the fourth round, gaining 105 EXP. The guy, saying he's from Team Aqua, leaves, but not before saying something about Rustboro. That's where I'm headed!
Green Suit guy feels the need to reward ne, giving me something I ciuld easily buy, a Great Ball. Oh well, let's keep going up.
I keep going, finding a Poke Ball hidden in the ground, and facing another Bug Catcher. Apparently bugs are popular at school. This universe is weird. Lex OHKOs both of the trainers Nincadas.
Anyway, I'm done with the forest, back to Route 104. I pick some berries, and visit the flower shop, getting a Wailmer Pail and a Rawst Berry. I then go behind the shop and gather items. I got a Poke Ball, another Potion, and a Super Potion. Super.
I face the rest of the trainers on Route 104.
So I make it to Rustboro and decide to check out the gym. Lex should make it cake. The gym looks unconventiomal. Walls stick out everywhere, and a trainers have GEODUDE. When it comes to the gym trainers Pokemon, Lex OHKOs all of them.
I approach Roxanne, ready for a fight. She asks me to battle, rather politely. Battle commences.
She sends out a Geodude(tte) and I send out the trusty Lex. A water gun critical hit makes the Geodude drop. Roxanne then sends out her second Geodude. A water gun hit also makes that one drop. I switch to Seth when Roxanne sends out her Nosepass. Nosepass is faster than Seth, and manages to Harden before Seth throws a water gun. She then blocks Seth, while Seth continues to use Water Gun. Nosepass tackles Seth, and Seth uses Water Gun again. The Nosepass heals some HP with a berry. Nosepass then Tackles Seth, as Seth keeps throwing out Water Guns. Before Seth's next attack, Roxanne uses a potion on Nosepass. Nosepass takes a water gun to the... giant nose, and tries to put Seth in a rock tomb. Nosepass missed, and got hit by another water gun. Annoyed, Nosepass tried again, but missed again. Seth threw another water gun at Nosepass, only to have Roxanne heal with another potion. Nosepass used Rock Tomb on Seth, and Seth fainted! Eep! I send out Nailah to chip before Lex finishes. Naialh uses Sand-Attack twice before she faints and I have to use Lex. Lex is faster than Nosepass, but can't dodge a Rock Tonb attack. Lex fainted! I whited out! Screw that, I think I'm going to get some fruit, reset, and try again.
So after eating a delicious apple, I find myself in front of Roxanne again, and we start battle. I switched Seth out to the front, and had him OHKO the Geodudettes.
As soon as Nosepass came out, I started the barrage of Water Gun. Nosepass used Block and Harden while I kept attacking her. When Roxanne used her first potion, I used an X defend I got from the Rustboro outskirts. At one point Seth's HP got down to 17/35, so I used a potion. Otherwise, I just endured repeated tackles and spammed Water Gun.
I'm happy with the results, as it got Seth higher leveled. Roxanne gave the Stone Badge, the first in the set I want. Now I can use CUT! I'll need an HM slave though. I also got a TM39, Rock Tomb. Well, now what.
I think I'll get this CUT thing that Roxanne was talking about. I think I'll look in the CUTTER'S HOUSE. That would be a very good place to start. I talk to the CUTTER, and he gives me the CUT HM. Well that was easy enough.
I run down by the Flower Shop, as I know there's Zigzagoons behind it. Of course, I run into everything BUT a Zigzagoon first. After over 40 encounters I realize I'm wrong and crazy and need to backtrack a little to get one. ;/
I run to Route 102 and I STILL can't find one. I even find a Seedot! This game hates me! D:
I then go to Route 101, and FINALLY find a Zigzagoon. I catch it in a Pokeball, name it Slave001 and then teach it CUT. Then I start going back to Rustboro, getting itens I couldn't before along the way. I got a TinyMushroom, A Miracle Seed from a woman, a great ball, an X Attack, another TinyMushroom, and an X Accuracy.
As I was leaving the gym, I saw a Team Aqua guy running north, and green suit walking
behind him, yelling "Don't take my GOODS!". That was weird. Let's check it out! As I head out, Green Suit guy asks me to help. I decide to do so, being the nice guy I am. But first... let's beat all the trainers here! \o/ I'm not going to describe it, that would take FOREVER. I did run back to the Pokecenter a lot though. Also SHROOMISH IS EVIL.
So, having defeated all the mooks and not experiencing any Aqua guys yet, I start to go near the cave. He tells me a scoundrel made off with his darling PEEKO, then he screams. That's nice, old man.
So, I go in the cave, and it's somehow really foggy. How that works I have no idea, but whatever. I grab the Pokeball, and then start to go after tbe Aqua man and his bird. I talk to the bird, who I suddenly realize is PEEKO. Suddenly the old man seems less crazy.
I then talk to the Aqua guy, who's pissy because he sucks at being evil. He than challenges me to a battle. Ok.
He sends out his Poochyena, while I send out Lex. A Wing Attack brings the Poochyena to the warning zone already, and the Poochyena just howls. I have Lex finish off the Poochyena with another wing attack.
The Aqua guy tells me that he's upset, and gives me the Devon Goods, before storming off in a fuss. The old man comes in now, happy to see his Peeko. He then turns to me, and identifies himself as Mr. Briney, and gives me his thanks. They then leave. I should probably leave too, I have GOODS to deliver.
When I return, Green Suit thanks me again... by giving me another great ball. Great. He then takes me to the DEVON CORPORATION's third floor, and asks me to deliver the GOODS to Slateport. Sigh, the things I do for great balls.
Suddenly, I'm talking to the President! No, not Obama.. Mr. Stone! He asks me to stop in Dewford, the location of Gym #2, and asks me to deliver a letter to Stephen. The cocky bastard then tells me he's a great president. :/
But, he proves himself worthy of that title by giving me a Pokenav! I have a map (and a condition checker?) now! He then heals me, and sends me on my way. I leave, and a doctor follows me out, adding a feature to my Pokenav, MATCH CALL. I then call Mr. Stone. We chat it up, and then I REALLY go on my way.
As I'm about to leave, I see none other than my friend (I think) , May! I get her number (omg) and all of a sudden battles what. She sends out a Wingull, and I send out my own. But I switch out for Nailah. Wingull tries to use Supersonic on Nailah, but misses. Wingull uses Wing Attack on Nailah, thrn Nailah bites it. The Wingull then Criticals Nailah with Wing Attack, having Nailah with 1HP left. Nailah then crits as well, killing the Wingull. When May sends out the Treecko, I switch to Lex. Treecko opens with Quick attack, and Lex counters with wing attack. Lex then uses Wing Attack again, making Treecko faint.
May says I'm better then she thought, and tells me that Mr. Briney was a revered seafarer in his time. Cool. Now I have to heal Nailah and be on ny way. Again.
I start to head back to Petalburg, stopping to register a few people in my Pokenav, before I go to Briney's cottage. He decides to sail me to Dewford. On the way, NotDad decides to call me up and add me to his Pokenav. Woohoo, I guess.
Next thing I know, I'm in Dewford. First things first, visit the Dewford Hall. Apparently, LOUSY PROMISE is hip and trendy. These people are silly. I'll tell them what's really hip. HIGH MOVE. Geeze, have they never played FE? Good thing I'm there to set them straight. Go me. Time to deliver a letter!
So I head north, and get right into a battle, where Seth almost kills himself due to confusion and poison. Thankfully, I have Lex to save the day, and this way my EXP gets distributed evenly.
Alright, time to face the DARK SCRAY CAVE and find Stephen... with no flash and no map. Let's go.
Seth killed some Arons amd fled from pests (IE Zubat).
In all honesty, the cave took me like two minutes to solve. Without flash or a map. I found Stephen, who is interested in rare stones apparently, and delivered his letter. He gave me the Steel Wing TM. Cool! We then become Pokenav buddies. Wooooooh. Let's go beat Brawly.
I decide to beat all the trainers first, again, taking out their Pokemon with Lex's Wing Attack.
I give Lex an Oran Berry to hold and prepare to face Brawly. But I feel
I must work on my Pokemon a bit before I face him, I'm not strong enough yet. I talk to Briney and we go to Slateport. Yay. I avoid all the trainers at the beach at first, and go directly into the town.
It's amazing, all the large buildings, and the public bazaar, the lighthouse, Battle Tent, museum being held up by Team Aqua..... wait, what? I talk to them, and make a spa date with one of the members. That'll be fun! I then go to the bazaar, and get a Powder Jar from a berry lady. Time to deliver the GOODS that were oh so important earlier. OK.
I go to the shipyard., and talk to a confused man staring at a blueprint. He tells me his name is Dock, and asks me to find Captain Stern.
I start to look around, and find that the museum's lineup is gone. Hooray! I go in, for a fee of 50 whatevers. Immediately, the Team Aqua member I beat up before gives me a TM and runs out.
On the Top floor, I encounter Stern, and as I'm about to hand him the Devon Goods, some mooks come upstairs and declare BATTLE! Naturally, I battle them. Lex takes them out and levels up. I forgot to record it. Oops. Supersonic is helpful.
Maxie comes in, after those two chumps were beaten, and asks me if I'm a MAGMA. No idea what that is, bro. They leave, after confronting me. I give Capt. Stern the GOODS. He heals my Pokemon. Time to go check out the Shipyard again.
As I leave, the guy from Petalburg who was a jerk to me shows up, and introduces himself. His name is Scott. He registers me in his Pokenav. Turns out i might be talented after all. Heh
So, I go to the Shipyard. Dock is there, he tells me something about shipbuilding being an art. OK. Stern is nowhere to be seen. This sucks, no rew- Oh yeah! I should go to Rustboro again. I run south and Briney and I go to Petalburg, and I go to Rustboro from there to talk to the President. He gives me an EXP Share! This will be helpful! I give it to Nailah.
I then decide to go to Slateport, and go about finding a Minun. Of course, my first ecounter is a PLUSLE
. Why does this game detest me. Next thing I know I'll run into a Volbeat! D: After a while, I do run into a Minun. I weakened it some, and caught it in a Poke Ball. It's nickname became Kieran.
