Hello again little lights, I wanted to have some anime girls death battle a little more so I decided to continue playing my Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomiser Nuzlocke! You know that thing where I battle with Pokémon and if they faint they are considered dead! Last episode we got an amazing starter and some pretty sleek Pokémon to kit out our team! We are looking good! But can it help us?
Before the Gym Battle officially starts I decided to walk around a bit. I am not too familiar with Emerald as I haven’t played it in ages so I mozy around and talk to everyone, I encounter one of those weird.. enter the impossible to grasp passcode persons in the form of a sick girl! I search the web for an online generator to get this done and I speak “the funny word” to her father. The word is hsnBMqpgsTnBVcq. Wanda smiles and is healed by the word and I get a new wallpaper for my computer… so not worth this but hey I guess my death box now looks Kawaii as Fudge! Another guy thinks I would trade a Gengar for a Jumpluff.. I guess the people in this town are weirdo’s that is not a good trade for me if I would do that!
I end up finding a big pearl on route 105 and now have two options. I can face the gym with a team of 5 or I do my cave encounter and route 116 before.. as far as I am aware in Nuzlocke.. it is always wise to have more Pokémon! So I move into the grass of route 116 and my first encounter is a Gardevoir with Psycho Boost.. a super powerful move! I manage to catch it easily but I almost lose Murmur the Porygon 2 to her onslaught! I swap in Jigglypuff and the one named Miku can not be hit by anything that is not super effective so she is safe. I capture the Gardevoir and name her C.C. I might not like code Geass but it seems like a fitting name!
C.C. is proper Waifu Material so I decide to train her up a bit so she doesn’t die immediately in the gym battle.. A random trainer has a Suicune and gives her a lot of trouble! I want to swap her out but the opponent has Arena Trap and I fear for my life. Luckily Gardevoir breaks free and learns Mistball.. there was no need for her to learn that over Agility … but I found it funny that she has two legendary Signature moves so I did it anyway, sometimes you just have to have fun… plus Mistball looks cute as an attack on her! For some strange reason I do encounter Gengar in these fields so I decide to cheat a little.. I will catch it and trade it for the Jumpluff …just so I can have a Trophy waifu.. I won’t use her and I will burn resources on this ..but it is just for fun! I waste a lot of Pokéballs and Money but I end up with my first Trophy Wife Yellow The Jumpluff that I traded for a Gengar.. just because it is such a bad trade!
On my way to Rusturf tunnel I fight a few trainers with legendaries. Everyone except for Murmur the Porygon and Umaru the Slowpoke manage to reach level 11.. In the tunnel I failed to catch my encounter, which was an Elekid.. it isn’t that bad as I do prefer our own Usagi the (C)Raichu. I think the Gym Leaders ace is level 13 or so.. which we should be able to handle! But I have come to realise we have a bit of a grass weakness! I have no good counters for that and two members are weak against it, and grass also resists Usagi! The only good way to deal with it is sending in Miku the Immune Jigglypuff! So let’s hope that the gym leader does not have a Venusaur or a Meganium!
The Rustboro Gym
The Gym challenge begins.. I forgot to talk to the dude for a free fresh water and rush into the first battle with a Youngster.. sending out Umaru first against his Glalie..we should have this.. unfortunately Glalie has Tail Glow.. which boosts it’s stats greatly and it immediately freezes Umaru as well.. putting her on Red health. No Bueno! I already need to swap in Jigglypuff to survive this! Miku.. is immune to ice type moves and Glalie has no fighting type moves so it goes down fairly easily as we leave our first little girl corpse in the gym! Time for the second trainer, only one left after this ..before facing the leader! Let’s give Umara a chance to redeem herself. I slip up and trigger a double battle! after which the Hiker and a young boy send out a Chansey and a Nincada.. which isn’t good for the pair of Usagi and Umara.. both are special attackers.. and one is weak against Nincada.. we better take care of the bug first!.. Then I realise Nincada is a ground type, now that moves are random but based on the same type bias Usagi is in grave danger.. I need to swap her out and risk them doubling into Umaru.
Luckily Chansey doesn’t do anything and Nincada can barely damage her! Sakura the Rhyhorn comes out to replace Usagi.. as Chansey is weaker to physical attacks and Ground and Bug types can’t hurt Sakura a lot! The trainers send in a Smoochum and Poochyena next! The Smoochum is no problem but the Poochyena has Sacred Fire which burns Sakura and cuts her attack in half putting her out of the fight! I swap in Murmur.. but she also gets burned right away! Luckily Vicegrip still does decent damage and Umaru’s Water Gun finishes the pair off! It is time.. to face the gym leader! At least everyone is level 11 now so I do feel fairly confident!
Roxanne normally is a Rock Type Gym leader, which we would easily wash with Murmur and Umaru.. but she isn’t the same Roxanne as before.. she calls herself Bug Catcher Robin now.. for one and she leads off with a level 12 Gardevoir… which means Miku has to come and save the day already! If it has Psycho Booth as well it can pretty much kill everything else! Umaru levels up from this fight and so does Miku with Miku now learning Super Sonic. The next Pokémon Roxanne is about to use is a Mew.. which is a problem yet again…because Mew can learn ANYTHING and it has no real stat bias either. I am afraid it will have Focus Blast so I decide to swap in Rhyhorn which is one of my tankier Pokémon.. Sakura can also use Mud Slap to lower its accuracy if need be!
Mew looks absolutely adorable. I must have it! I must.. but I can’t because it belongs to a Gym Leader so she has to die! Sakura nearly gets one shot by a psybeam.. and barely manages to chip away at her health too..it looks like I am going to have to risk Miku here! Afraid of the Focus Blast I use Gardevoir instead as it can resist the Psychic attacks! I whittle away at Mew with Mistball until it goes down, the Gym leaders Ace is a Dunsparce.. I decided to swap in Murmur as she could use the XP the most, thinking the Gym leader’s ace is level 13..turns out it’s 15! It starts using Thunder and immediately puts Murmur in red health.. I decide to swap in USagi to counter this.. but she has False Swipe which puts Usagi on Yellow health..Dunsparce reveals her other moves to be Recover and Charge.. which means it can’t touch Miku.. but can Miku kill it fast enough before she struggles to her own death?
It turns out the answer is yes! Realising as a Gym Leader that Dunsparce can not touch me it keeps spamming Charge instead of Recover and Three Crush claws later I am the proud owner of a Stone Badge. She also grants me the teachable move Morning Sun… which is only a mildly decent healing move.. so I decide to sell it with the move Flail that I picked up earlier.. Flail deals more damage depending on how hurt you are. It is often used in novelty combat sets such as a Magikarp Sweep team (in which you set the game up so that Magikarp can kill a full team of Legendaries with just the move Flail). It isn’t very good for Nuzlockes though.. and Morning Sun being better in weather also feels too flimsy! I rather have some potions that I can more reliably use early game! After exiting the gym.. I see a robbery is going on! I ignore it for now and go heal my damaged team. Then it is time to rescue a Peeko!
I equip Sakura with a Quick Claw I managed to get my hands on and give Murmur a Hard Stone. The first item allows Pokémon to Strike first sometimes and Sakura is a slow girl! The second powers up Ground type moves.. so Murmur’s Earthquake now deals more damage. Time to hunt some criminal scum! Well it would be had I not been distracted with a few trainers hidden behind some cuttable bushes.. there are items on the ground.. and since they too are randomised Lucky Eggs (which double XP) or Master Balls can be everywhere. Murmur is forced to learn Cut.. since I don’t actually have an extra Pokémon to use as an HM slave.. and Immediately she gets into a fight with an Entei.. the Hard Stone pays off here as we easily Oneshot Entei with a powered up Earthquake! C.C. Nearly gets killed by a Dewgong but we end up safe and sound arriving at Rustuf tunnel once more where an eldery Sailor tells us that his 8 year old girl has been stolen by Team Aqua.. and if I could please get his Peeko back! I agree though I really hope Peeko’s overworld sprite remains a Wingull..in bird form.. as I enter the cave to fight a pirate!
Luckily Peeko indeed looks like a bird.. but we all know better in this world Pokémon are little girls.. but yay for Censorship and all! The Pirate prefers to go by the name of Rich Boy Bob, who has a Sharpedo.. which is kind of the Signature Pokémon for this team.. so that’s strange! Usagi punishes in the name of the Moen or something and I get Peeko back and some sort of supplies for a big corporation. I bring back the stuff that was stolen from them and as a reward they give me more work… and some kind of weird navigation that is also a phone.. you know that is KINDA the wrong way around! That’s right, even Moths can be Millenials. I guess now I have to head towards the second gym .. which means I have to go on a boat with that old guy.. that keeps little girls locked up in his balls.. and I am a 10 year old girl…. Thanks Devon Corp for sending me on this mission! I am sure this will not backfire at all!
I’m on a Boat.
I really have forgotten a lot about these games! Apparently I have to fight Brendan at the exit of town! Umaru nearly dies again.. she isn’t really pulling her weight here…so I might see if I can replace her with an Old Rod Encounter in a bit! She does manage to finish an Eevee!!!! Although barely.. and when Brendan sends out a Pidgeotto I send in Usagi to quickly finish this fight! He outlevels me though so Pidgeotto lives a hit and makes Usagi cry by hitting her again. She revenge kills him soon after with the power of her ability Effect Spore.. which ends up poisoning them. In my head cannon Effect Spore.. isn’t actually spores.. but tears. Usagi cries and her tears can inflict a status condition. Yes that works really well! Perhaps the spores are in her tears! On the way back through Petalburg Woods I decide to go the route that is locked behind some cut trees. I picked up a few new items including a Miracle Seeds that powers up grass moves, of which I currently have none.. but I also find an Amulet Coin.. which is a great item! It generates more money! I decided to put it on Usagi. I use her more often than I use Miku due to how hard she hits! I might switch it to Miku soon though.. I am not sure on who the item is better for now.
I arrive at Mister Briney’s house and he is Chasing the little girl that just happens to look like a bird on her sprite to make this all PG around the table! I talk to him and he stops playing around..calling Peeko his darling.. his filthy vagrant behaviour is something that should not be tolerated! At least as long as I keep him occupied, poor Peeko is safe! My chores that I got for helping a big company out is having to travel to two towns. Dewford to deliver a letter to mister Steven Stone, the Champion of the Pokémon League AND Travel to Slateport! Luckily in Dewford there is also the second gym! I am running out of space to type though so instead of pursuing this course of action I decided to pick up an old rod to fish for my Dewford Encounter.. I also got to go back to Petalburg to fish there.. but I will hold off for now! Except for Umaru my team is looking fairly strong! I decide to fish and what lives on the bottom of the sea?! Why a little girl of course! Nibbling on my rod is a brand new Spearow…maybe I will go grab that Petalburg encounter after all! I catch it though and name it Asuka!
I decide to hold off and challenge the two Fishermen on the beach instead to wrap this up! Fight one goes about as well as you expect! Sakura had to be swapped out against a Slowpoke as a droplet of Rain WILL kill her.. but Usagi once again comes to save the day! The second fight.. is a disaster.. Sakura faces off against a Zapdos.she can’t hit Zapdos and it is level 10! Sakura is level 12.. Meanwhile Zapdos has a headbutt and whittles away at Sakura.. I try to swap her out but Zapdos has Shadow Tag.. this looks like this might be it for Sakura.. but I refuse to let her go and I decide to keep my girl healthy with potions wasting them all! But it works! Sakura has low Power Points (number of uses) on her moves and thus she gets to use “struggle” fairly early! Finally being able to hit Zapdos.. who now is locked in Spark.. a high Power Point Move that can not hurt ground types! With about 25% Hp left, Sakura finishes off the Zapdos and Usagi deletes his two other Moe girls. Which includes a very skimpily dressed Octillery! Oh jeez Sakura I am so glad you are okay I thought I had lost you! Let’s use this moment to take a break! Next episode the battle against Brawly will happen and we get a few new encounters! Untill then.. don’t lewd the Moes.. they are Tomodachi!
