This or That: Which Pokémon is Tastier

Where did I put my new headgear… frick! Oh well , hi Island guests!   I decided to have a bit more fun with my blogs and well that means I am doing a lot of silier topics rather than reviews!   It has made blogging a lot more fun! Yet also a whole lot less  useful!  So let’s hope you read these things because you like me or my content rather than that you read my stuff to see if an anime or game is for you! I came up with a new little concept where under certain conditions I pit two options against each other.. and then I  pick! Today we will answer the important question! Which Pokémon will taste better?! I only want the finest cuisine now that I am going to ascend manager status!

Beef:  Tauros or Miltank

There aren’t all that many Bovine options in Pokémon, Bouffalant escaped the Abattoir because of the relation Miltank and Tauros  seem to have.. almost as if a male and female side of the same coin. We all know which one  of the two is scarier, but which one of the two would be tastier?  For those of you who don’t know, yes it is established that people eat Pokémon and these two are the most commonly mentioned being turned into burgers. Fan theories basically say they are the same pokémon in a way but gender variations..like Gardevoir and Gallade as it were. Or Glalie and  Froslass. So we already start with a pickle.. they will probably taste fairly similar. Tauros meat will be a bit more muscular and chewie while Miltank is a bit more plumb and has more fat.

So  I do believe that Miltank would be the more commonly used protein. It has the less pronounced taste. However I do believe that Tauros would be the more flavourful one. Miltank lives off its own milk a bit..which I can only imagine reducing it’s taste.  Tauros seem a bit more wild.. and might have a bit of a gamey aftertaste which I really could fancy..but best of all, Tauros has multiple tails.. Oxtails are great in taste and for soup  and sauces. Good for graveys as well.  So I am convinced that Tauros is the more flavourful one. Yet is it always  tastier?! The common population says  no. Chicken Fillet is still a lot more popular than chicken thigh and people really prefer the more neutral tasting meats. I however am not the safe cut kinda girl! I prefer the pieces of cow others pass up on , so I’ll go bull as well!!

Pork:  Grumpig or Pignite

I’d make chicken a category but there is only one chicken pokémon, so I think white meat is scarce in the world of Pokémon. So let’s pick our source of Pokémon Bacon. PIloswine is another option but I’d say that that again is more gamey and it would be the Miltank and  Tauros story all over again. Besides Ground, Ice type sounds like the meat would be really tough and would need to marinate a lot.. we don’t always have time for that so for today we will  compare two pigs with similar body types. Pignite is a fire fighting starter from the fith generation, while Grumpig is a psychic type from the Hoenn region. At first glance the latter has a lot of things going for it. It’s a psychic type that is known for using its psychic powers to eat berries. Which means it will have a lot of sweet, subtle meat that could be delicious! I am also very interested in eating something purple!

On the other hand Pignite is a fire , fighting type. The meat would be more firm and probably not as flavorful as it would eat whatever 10 years old starting their journey would feed it… so it will probably be fed a lot of pot noodles and redbull. Yet it has a very plumb body and some fats that can be beautifully rendered. I bet it could taste nice with some apple and thyme, maybe some sauteed onions. The most important clue to which one is the tastiest we find in their pre-evolutions. You see Spoink the prevolution of Grumpig dies if it ever stops bouncing on it’s own tail.It has an insanely stressful life. 

Stress can be tasted in an animal. Alternatively , Tepig is a starter which means it is bred to be friendly towards 10 year olds. Which means it probably has a plushie little life as soon as it is born where it is groomed to be friendly to be people.  Which I assume would be done by getting food, pets and other forms of love.. so it hungers for that same type of affection in a 10 year old.. those who evolve to early or who aren’t picked live with the professor for a while .. but some will eventually just be sold off for meat, but before that a Pignite will have had a good life.. and you can taste that. Besides it’s a fire type!  Which means it practically is self crisping bacon! That alone would make it the winner.

Duck: Kantonian Farfetch’D or Galarian Farfetch’D

So since I wanted to do at least some form of edible bird comparison I settled on a bird that I love to bits… but also love to eat!  Ducks!   In this case.. we even compare the same Pokémon.. but  from different parts in the world. You know much like how Irish Mutton is kind of tastier than Dutch Mutton. And yes while I would love to have a pet Duck, I still would eat them. Same would go for other pets.. on the premise they were bred for meat.. not as a pet that got  not picked and turned into meat instead.   So which one of these ducks… would be the tastiest. They both have a leak, in varying sizes. Galarian Farfetch’D has the bigger leak so I think it is safe to say that would be the tastier leak! It has also much more rich and vibrant colours.  Ratio wise I also think Galarian Farfetch’d would be the more balanced meal!   

Yet when I look at the duck itself I can not help but feel that the Kantonian Farfetch’D would be tastier. I do not know why… but sometimes you see a pig or a cow and think.. that seems like a tasty animal.. while other times you think, eeeew, I don’t want that in my Big Mac.  It’s that whole Bancho-Vibe Galarian Farfetch’D has. I’d think kissing a princess would be nicer than Kissing Jolene Kujo or  Poison from Final Fight.. would be not as  nice of a kiss then  Sailor Moon.  Sometimes you just know these things right?!  I feel Galarian Farfetch’D would be the junkfood duck! The one that ends up in the peking duck at that budget chinese restaurant while Kantonian Farfetch’D would be found at Bistro La Duchesse du Carnard Douce, or something!  Now it would be awesome if we could mix and match! Kantonian Bird.. with Galarian Leek.. but that sounds like that might be a delicacy I can’t afford.

Fruit: Cherubi or Applin

I failed to come up with a good vegetable this or that. My initial idea would be Oddish vs Bouncesweet.. but Oddish is Poisonous.  So out go the turnips. Then Amoonguss versus Shinotic for Mushrooms.. but Amoonguss is poisonous.  Shroomish and Shinotic are too different. In the world of Pokémon.. if it’s green it is most likely bad for you!  The kelp of Dhelmise drains life and don’t even get me started on how many leafs might actually be Razor leafs?!   No it’s best not to eat your veggies in the world of Pokémon!  Fruit however offers a few options. Cherubi and Applin are both tiny pokémon with relatively low stats and a mostly harmless move pool.  I think Applin might learn apple acid….but apple vinegar is a kitchen staple so that is safe. Apples and Cherries are both fairly popular fruits but both have a bit of a problem. The cherry has mutated into having a second head which might be a bit of an unsettling sight.. after all cherries might be to tiny to cut off the face.. so for those not wishing to eat something with a face.. this could be trouble.

Applin however is an apple that has a worm in it.. only in this case the worm is a tiny dragon.. somehow this causes it to merge with the apple and the idea of a worm in an apple is a pretty gross idea. Besides that there are plenty of normal apples in the pokémon world, but cherries are uncertain. Why eat the one apple that can fight back? I personally think that a worm living in an apple and having merged with said fruit is probably ceviched in the apple acid and might actually taste nice, still it is a pretty gross idea.. much more so than a two faced cherry!  My favourite cake is a Black Forest cake and my favourite fruit is a cherry!  Though peaches are close.. but since there is no peach Pokémon.. I had to pit the cherry against the apple.. and while the Apple definitely has the  tastier evolution.. I can’t escape the feeling that the little red guy looks super tasty! Both in it’s regular AND shiny form!

Dessert: Slurpuff or Alcremie

Let’s end with desert!  This one is a tough one. Alcremie is very VERY close to being my favourite Pokémon of all time, but could I imagine myself eating one?!  Yes!  Alcreamy is the whipped cream Pokémon, decorated  with fruit and other things. That is pretty tasty! I loved whipped cream, it is neutral and you can make a delicious dessert with it by combining it well.. it’s everything’s best friend!  Slurpuff on the other hand is a Meringue. which means it is egg whites whisked into stiff peaks and usually a lot of sugar! Meringue is a great desert if you combine! Like with Sea salted caramel and dark chocolate.. or with lemon!  Slurpuff also has a great nose .. amazingly so!  So he can help you find the ingredients… but that is kinda cruel! So I won’t do that! I really love Slurpuff and Alcremie so I would need to eat pieces of them in a dish I can not make a dish with them!

Alcremie has a big pro over Slurpuff though, it comes in many flavours and options!   Depending if you spin your cream right or left and how hard you can whip there are 71 Alcremies for you to whip up including it’s gigantamax cake form. However there are a few pretty gross sounding Alcreamies as well! Mint cream with Clover?!  Salted Cream with Ribbons?!  Those don’t sound very tasty… but they do look adorable. So this begs the question.. do we compare the average Alcremie flavour against Slurpuff.. or the best tasting one?!  Caramel Swirl with Strawberry sweet Alcremie sounds pretty delicious!  Or how about a Lemon cream with Blueberry one?! Pretty good if you feel like something more tart!. There is an alcreamie for every mood! And they are not that hard to make either! Meanwhile for Slurpuff you have to find some whipped dream… and I might prefer that to eat that over a Meringue. Plus spinning is good to lose all those calories Alcremie will put on!

And that’s it! A feast of Pokémon has been served! Which ones do you think I called wrong? Do you have another good idea for a This or That?!  Which Pokémon would you not mind eating? Let me know in the comments while I go rest up after such a hearty meal! May all your pokémon be tasty! Oyasumi!

It’s time! To C-C-Catch them All! Pinkie Plays: PokéDuel

Hello Little Lights!  For those who have been keeping track of my Twitter Account this might not come as a surprise!  Yet I have recently played a RomHack of my favourite franchise that I really want to talk to you about today!  What if we combine Pokémon with YuGiOh?!  I got my game on and tried this rom!  A journey began …but I felt like this game was missing something, perhaps some spirit… or maybe even the heart of the cards?!

Creature Swap

In the past I have already played Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Team Training.  Which was a Dragon Ball Rom hack of the same base game. Fire-Red.  However where in that game we do see some locations reskinned and renamed here we travel through good old Kanto. No Domino city here.. though that makes sense. YuGiOh is fairly barren of locations. As it is very much set in one city and one island and maybe the Egypt of the past.

 Yet even then in that ancient egypt there wasn’t much dueling going on. PokéDuel also only really has references up to to 5d’s and those are very minimal. Rather than being Pokémon YuGiOh this kind of feels more like Pokémon YuGiOh Abridged. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. There are 163 new creatures to collect, so for those well versed in YuGiOh lore and even those who just saw an arc or two of the first season.. there are still plenty of monsters to add to your team that you will know.

Gym Leaders have also been replaced  including their respective typing. A lot of monsters even have custom typings and every monster has somewhat altered movesets so they seem more interesting. For example Dark Magician Girl will learn psybeam, but also a lot of moves like attract, sweet kiss and barrier to mirror the role of a card she had in the series. It goes so far that this actually has a fairly large impact on the game as YuGiOh monsters tend to not have a lot of moves in the anime,, the card monsters in this game reflect that and get a lot more stat boosting, or status inducing moves.

 This game is not something you should play without a healthy dose of full heals! So gameplay wise, I actually found this rom to be a fairly interesting departure from the Pokémon formula ,and instead we go for a slower type of gameplay, with more tactical plays to be made. Neat!  So just by swapping creatures around and typing availability the game changes a lot!

Examples of gameplay changing is very noticable in Dragon Type cards. If you know a bit about YuGiOh, you’ll know Dragon cards are very common in the game, so Dragon Types.. are not always that tactical to have. Dark type is SUPER common as well , so is the normal type. So fighting types are very strong to have in this game, many of the 5d’s cards are steel type after all. Water types are really uncommon only existing in the form of Humanoid Slime and Archery Girl as well as the Legendary Fisherman and a handful of other cards.. but going from one of the most common typings to one of the least common means you will have to adjust your strategies! And that is the saving grace of this game! It offers a very interesting take on Pokémon battling and will make you a better fighter.. Unfortunately the rest of the game isn’t very good.

Dark Mirror Force

First of all this game is UGLY! I don’t want to rip on peoples pixel-art and people are still working on this game but it is made public , so I think I am allowed to have my opinion here.. and this game isn’t pretty! Overworld sprites are okay.. because famous duelists have been ripped out of those GBA store games like Resheff of Destruction or that narrative god cards game. You will recognise them  Tea, Tristan and the others quite easily! ..It does result in some problems though!  

For example Pegasus is an Elite 4 member.. but instead of his iconic look we get the Reshef of Destruction restyle.. where he called himself Sol!  Odd choice!  Dartz is a Gymleader and obviously he has no sprite so that one looks very odd!   And then there is the fact that a YuGiOh sprite is twice as tall as the trainer sprite.. so we get some odd ratios in the overworld.. as well as regular pokémon still appearing in that world.. it looks odd to find a Kabuto Fossil while the item uses the dome fossil to revive Exodia Necross. It just screams fan remake.. something that was less apparent in a few other hacks.

In battle though is where the game really looks like a digested Kuriboh. The Dark Magician sprite is FANTASTIC, so is her back sprite… but some of the duelist and some monsters look like …..crabcakes..that have been eaten by a dog.. and passed out.  Some art is really good! The starters look pretty amazing! Other art however looks like it has been drawn in paint.  Some of the monsters are absolutely non recognisable.  Like Change of Heart of Buster Blader. What am I looking at?! However I could find myself liking this if it had been done ironically!  

The problem is that there is no style which makes that paint work look uglier than an Orange shouty man.. if you had soaked him in a tub of red beets.. all pruned up and all!   Some trainer sprites are just heads. Their portraits from Starway of the Destined Duel.. while some have been made in pair style. Other times they are simplified version of the overworld sprite.  There is no style though!  Odion’s head is completely  blown up large and in your face, while the Elite 4 is custom sprite work.. The same goes for the monsters. I should be scared when I see a five headed dragon for the first time! Not laughing my ass off.  Cyber End Dragon is supposed to feel menacing. .. not like a nest full of baby birds crying for momma to feed them.

Release Restraint

Besides the ugly sprite work is how limited the game feels!  Dialogue has been replaced with YuGiOh dialogue.. but it has been done randomly! Up to a point where one guy in a Pokémon Center can mention his Pokémon while the other makes a comment about dueling on MotorCycles. There is no immersion in this world as the game is very much unfinished at least in terms of feeling. There is no cohesion, and what is said feels a bit like a retread of YuGiOh Abridged.

Take Lavender town for example, the entire ghost tower is one giant Pot of Greed joke!  Which is fun, I laughed but if  every character in the tower there makes the same joke, I would have rather seen a funny reference elsewhere. It feels as if the creators of this Romhack were to afraid we would not like their jokes so they mostly used the ones of little Kuriboh.. and that is a shame!

Because WHEN the game does it’s own thing with the franchise it does it nicely. Before entering Rock Tunnel for example you encounter a duplicate of the old man laying on the ground sprite.. with a little  girl sitting besides him.  She makes a joke that her Grandpa had a near heart attack at the announcements of Pendulum Summons!  I hate that mechanic myself so I laughed really hard.. it also combines this iconic Pokémon thing with a relevant joke in the YuGiOh  and that is where this game can shine! In lavender town you can find a man who makes a very good yugioh/ this is a rom hack joke. Where they used to burry pokemon and people… now they bury cards. \

 There is soul in that! Yet then  they add in green hair Kaiba.. as a reference to season 0 of YuGiOh, but when defeated he says, screw the rules I have green hair. I like the joke.. but  not as a line for when defeated. It would be funny if they had replaced the Saffron City guard with it. and when letting  you through he could say the line. Weevil is in Erica’s joke and he makes a joke about all women that surround him.. yet the old man outside has not been given new text.. missed opportunities. Team Rocket is just a team rocket. That would make for a great henchman joke.. with finger guns! It just lacks that sense of cohesion.

Mai replaces Surge and could have been made more interesting  by replacing “there is a switch there”  by .. what’s this you picked up a strange scent.. and the second line with, you found a scented card.  Just something, Blaine’s Quiz was still a pokemon quiz, I would have loved Yu Gi Oh questions!  It just feels like random people did random parts of the game and it has been stitched together like a patchwork quilt..  where the creators tend to thread on the safe side just a bit too much, despite their amazingly interesting battle system.

Kaiba versus Marik

In the end we end up with a game that feels a bit like a match between Kaiba and Marik. It definitely has some interesting back and forth in terms of gameplay.. but something is not feeling right!  The two personalities are too similar and the same kind of lines are repeated back and fourth without much to keep you engaged. You’d miss that sense of Grandeur that Joey or Yugi can bring to a match!  Kaiba versus Marik also seems like a match that is not meant to be.. if it was in the anime, we would probably see Joey and Yugi doing some other stuff at the same time.. time skipping trough the match with the field constantly growing bigger and crazier but we would lack the rhyme or reason!  And it’s a shame!  Because the ingredients for a great game are here!

I had some of the best pokémon battles in this game from a tactical sense and it was fun to play the game at a different pace! Yet at the same time I kept asking myself questions, why does Kuriboh evolve into Kuribabylon with a Moonstone? Why does Relinquished transform into restrict with that same item?!  I get why Neos turns into Neos Aqua Dolphin with a water stone, but why is Celtic Guardian a Grass type.. and at that why is he pretty much the only grass type in the game?!  It is a game that gets really close to getting it right.. but leaves too much work undone to feel as a proper attempt at a crossover ..for now!

Give it a try if you are a big fan of both franchises AND Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged, otherwise I’d say it’s a good idea to let this one sit in it’s cocoon of evolution for a little while longer. I really enjoyed the more status and effect heavy way of battling , yet at the same time it slows the game pace down a lot, and Pokémon already has a fairly slow pace of it’s own! So it is something you would need to keep in consideration. More times than you’d want you’ll find your monsters Paralyzed , Confused and Attracted, which does fix some gameplay issues..but creates others of it’s own. In the end I think that is really what this game is. Rather than an evolution of Pokémon Games, this aims more to feel like a Spin Off…. as if we would get Yu-Gi-Oh.. but on Motorcycles..or something!

A New Video! My First Dislike! The Sweetest Beef Bowl

Hello Little Lights! I am still chasing that dream to be a VTuber content creator! So I decided to make a video about my favourite subject, Pokémon! Since I try to profile myself as a Seiso type character, which means it’s pure and wholesome! Okay I may have murdered a pokémon professor in the video because I did not get to nickname my sweet but I think I am still rather wholesome…compared to other VTubers.. I was kind of proud of this video.. It isn’t that great or flawless.. but I put a lot of work in it. Yet this was the video I got my first dislike on.

Sweet Ambition

In this new video that I really wanted to make when coming up with my channel,  I created the Pokémon Sweet version.  It’s one of the earliest Rom Hacks  I played on this channel , and despite its flaws is still one of the most unique and fun rom hacks that are out there!
It is just so cute and totally me!  The grass is pink! Well at least the low grass is! It is the pinkest pokémon game you’ll ever see! So of course I will replay this!

There have been some technical issues caused by me using a laptop. Which causes a slight lag between video layers so the lip sync isn’t that great! But luckily I think I might have found a solution for that in the next video!  Which will be awesome!  I just had so much fun making this video and I hope it shows! Like I said about my previous videos, this is really a dream that I now can begin to chase, so I would really appreciate it if you could interact with the video.  The last video did not reach my goal of 10 likes, but it got me 2 new subscribers!
So the goals for this video remain the same!

-Get 10 Likes on this video… maybe 11 because of the 1 dislike I have gotten.
– Reach 25 followers. 

I really would like to get this thing started a bit and interaction is a great way to help out with that. Of course if you have any pro-tips on how to make cuter Twin Drills in VRoid Studio I am all ears as well!  I know it kind of looks like I am begging for likes.. and in a way I am.. but I really wish to chase these dreams.. and I consider you all friends that can help.
My real life friends would not though…so I am not really expecting you to interact either, I am just asking you to consider. Check out the video to make up your mind!

Future Videos

So now that I have given this a bit of thought, I have a pretty good idea on what my next videos will be.  My next video will be me doing a top 5. Most likely top 5 , Switch games coming out this year. I may change my mind about that though I am fickle.. but at least the concept of the video will be a  non gameplay video. Which is more of a socialish video!  A bit more edit friendly and that allows me to just talk a bit. It will be fun!   These will usually have some angle of actuality! Like a Tweet that hit me very hard , or an event that took place.  Stuff like that.

The fourth video “series” is  not a let’s play but rather a review type  discussion of a game.  Usually from my past!  It will cover a game I played in the past, that is special to me.. or that is quite bad or straight up strange !  Think Angry Video Game Nerd meets VTuber, with some room for childhood classics as well.  The game I want to discuss first is Super Ghouls and Ghosts, since a sequel is finally coming out at the end of the month! It will be talking more about the game and less of a live reaction emulation. I am quite excited for this one!
After those two are done we will start my “routine”

-A Retro-Style Game Playthrough (Let’s play)
-A Pokémon Game Playthrough (Let’s Play)
-A Top 5/Pinkie Talk 
– A Game “Review”

I am really determined to make my channel work so I am really excited to be making these videos!  I have found new communities to interact with and I think this allows me to grow as a content-creator. YouTube is a harder platform to master though! It lacks the community WordPress has and guiding people to my videos is a lot more involved.  So I apologise if these types of blog posts are obnoxious to you!  I am just trying to get this thing started and grow my channel! I promise you that after I reached a few milestones I will bother you less with it!  Video or text though it still is my content .. so if you are following me for me.. I hope you do not mind!

Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy my video! I will see you soon little lights!  Thanks for being such awesome community members! Shine on and keep being the awesome you that I love!    Oyasumi!

Pinkie Plays: Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomiser Nuzlocke Episode 6: It’s Froppy!

Hello again my little Lights, welcome back to a new Installment of Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomiser Nuzlocke. After the silly death of Souji next week I am really hoping I can get through a week without losing Moe’s! We got a pretty good team right now as we slowly will make our way to Flannery. We will get a fair few number of encounters,but a lot of trainer battles.. and an egg as well!  So today anything might happen!

The Team

Ace: Miku the Jigglypuff (Lvl 25)  Crush Claw, Camouflage, Flail, Super Sonic
Ability: Wonder Guard (Can Only be hit by Super Effective Moves)
2nd: Usagi the (C)Raichu (Lvl 24) Thunderpunch, Spark, Stockpile  Shockwave
Ability: Effect Spore (Can leave a Status Effect on Contact)
3th Murmur the Porygon 2 (Lvl 24)  Earthquake, Hyper Fang, Cut and Morning Sun
Ability: Poison Point (Can Poison when physically hit)
4th Ika-Chan the Tentacruel (Lvl 23)  Hydro Cannon, Hydro Pump, Bubble Rain Dance
Ability: Huge Power (Doubles Physical Attack)
5th Asuka the Fearow (Lvl 23) Sky Aerial Ace, Headbutt, Foresight, Milk Drink
Ability: Stench (Has a 10% Flinch Chance and encounters less wild Pokemon)
6th Hisoka the Mr. Mime (lvl 23) Heat Wave, Barrier, Light Screen, Pyscho Boost
Ability: Hustle (Physical moves are 50% more powerful but miss 20% of the time) 

Screams of Joy 

To continue our journey something has to learn Rock Smash.. will I take less Moe and Chi-Chi as a slave with me?!  Do I teach someone Rock Smash what I will do?!  Since Tentacruel has 3 water moves I decide to teach Ika-Chan  Rock Smash for now..it will be a useless move in combat.. but so is bubble right now.. and I really want to get everyone to their levels! The move deleter is pretty far away still .. but heck I might find a Kyogre Moe for me to catch anyone so let’s live a  little! And then it is encounter time! I think! Wait! I first need to get the HM for Strength in Verdanturf town! I encounter a few trainers but with an actually versatile team I don’t get. Hisoka learns Solar Beam.. because.. why not! I am not coming back to this town any time soon!  I decide to hold teaching strength for now but Murmur looks like she might be a HM slave! I do encounter a very cute Tsundere Granbull on my way back though! So it’s all worth it!

Time to head up North! Ika smashes some rocks and behind we find a journalist who wants to challenge me and interview me. Her camera man uses a Magikarp and she uses a Solrock and they are easily defeated. The next trainer has a single Celebi.. who falls to Asuka! I believed I could walk into the sandstorm a bit to get an encounter.. but apparently without the goggles I can’t even take a single step! I remember being able to walk here but it being a hassle without the goggles.. Maybe I have been hallucinating again!   Guess that happens from staring at all those Lava Lamps. Guess it is to route 112! This route has great memories for me! I found my first shiny ever here! A shiny Machop! What will my encounter be this time?! …EEEEEEEEEEEEEE! It’s a Bulbasaur! I need to  catch this! Sorry Murmur you will be booted off the team! I got my favourite starter! EEEEEEEEEE! It took me almost all my great balls but EEEEEEEEEE! Tme to skip some grinding and to add Froppy to my party!

Creepers!

After grinding Froppy has learned Strength (as she had no coverage and physical strength is mixed) she knows Giga Drain, Vine Whip and Synthesis.  Well actually he.. bit these are Moe so that’s debatable!  Next it is onto the Fiery Path to catch another Moe! What will it be.. will it be just as awesome?! It isn’t .. It’s an Onix.. that is not great ..but I did pick up a metal coat!  I name it Izumi and send it to the box for now!  I also get a static Rock Smash encounter .. A Magnemite that I call Yuhachigo.. it goes to the box as well!   But hey I have Moe in reserve now! Things are looking up for Pinkie!  Then we are on to the most confusing thing for a Pokémon Nuzlocke of these games! What looks like a new route is actually route 112 again! Hoenn has so much of these moments! Super confusing! 

I encountered a super strange Moe in the form of Lileep! I don’t even think it’s an anime girl! I am not sure what it is! I shared the picture with you! Tell me what you think it is! I know Ika-chan sure thought .. “I need to get the Distortion World out of here!” We beat the Lileep and some other trainers, before I discovered a house called Old Lady’s Rest Stop… Uhm…. is this a bathroom for old ladies?! No! This is a house where an old lady asks 10 year old girls to spend the night with her.. and keeps asking for you to stay over more! ….The heck is wrong with this world! I now get why Team Galactic wants to erase existence! This is NOT okay! I don’t know this old lady! Well let’s quickly move on! Rest my tiny bones?! It feels like she wants to collect them and build stuff with it or something! Creepy!

Next I encounter the weirdest trainer class I’ve ever seen.. Ghostwriter!  I never heard about it! I can’t even find info about it! The heck is going on in this area. a ghostwriter and a bone collecting lady!  I teach Ika-Chan Muddywater instead of Hydro Pump.. it is slightly more accurate and even though it is less powerful, the accuracy drop  is great. in Nuzlockes and it has a fair bit more PP which can be nice in stally battles! The next route is covered in Ash completely which doesn’t make the bone collector and the ghost writer less creepy! My encounter is a Venomoth .. which is okayish I guess! It is named Neppy and sent to the box! Now to get through this route! I remember normally disliking it because it has a lot of encounters popping up everywhere! I  see an item but I have to  get through a double battle to get it!  It actually has a Spinda, the thing you get too much on this route!

Through the Ashes

I decided to teach Usagi Night Shade, just so she has something else than electric moves to hit enemies with, it isn’t great but she hasn’t learned anything in over 20 levels of leveling! She needs something to deal with enemies as the electric type is resisted by a fair amount of my enemies! This fight turns out to be super scary though!  The trainer has an Armaldo that knows Destiny Bond.. a move that  kills you . .if you knock out the enemy that used it.. and Ika–Chan will definitely knock  them out!  Saving my baby Usagi chan, I decide to swap in  Asuka .. and she almost gets killed by a Rock Tomb. We scrape by but trigger another battle, which is witteling us down more and more!  The item I chased turns out to be a Fluffy Tail.. while that sounds cute.. it basically means you throw the tail of another creature in the battle.. so enemies attack it.. and you can run away.

Now I am running out of potions ..so I stop by a house hoping it’s another  bone collecting lady that allows me to rest.. but no .. this is a guy that is a glass blower.. he gives me a big bag to fill with Ash in order so he can make me glass tools! He huffs and puffs! .. Wait.. he is the Big Bad Wolf!!! EEEEEK!  Horror!  Well let’s collect come ash then if he ever attacks me I can throw it in his eyes!  I decide to lead Froppy since she is bulky and has plenty of moves to use! Maybe with that Moe I can reach the next town! I keep getting attacked by Ninjas though! Seriously what’s wrong with this world.. I mean they call themselves Botanists.. (again where can you find that trainer class?!)  but they clearly are ninja’s.. Chuunin though!

Everything goes a bit downhill after that. Miku gets burned, Ika-Chan gets paralysed, Usagi gets poisoned, Asuka is in red health,  and Hisoka gets hit by a Shadow Ball by A Magmar.. and puts on 2hp! We narrowly escaped death there!   As a result levels begin to grow a bit more skewed. Froppy is my strongest Moe now followed by Miku! I have to start using Repels more to make my way through this route!  We sneak by a few trainers and enter Fallarbor town! I heal everyone up and go back to finish off all the remaining trainers! I always feel compelled to do that!  A trainer class called “servant”  has A MAchoke that looks like she might be a Yare Yare Daze girl.. she also has a pretty sexy  Poliwrath.. well except for the boxing gloves!  

I then explore town a bit as I know there is a TM for Roar on a villager, as well as the move Dig.. these both get randomised. Roar gets randomised to… Roar… Eh?! Frizzle Sticks!  Dig gets randomised to Sketch! Son of a.. Skitty!  I have had the worst TM  luck!  I also decide to stock up on potions again! Since the store is randomised  I check for interesting items but there are none! Just some X items that boost a stat! They can be neat but with a Randomiser of moves they aren’t all that reliable for defence at least! So I decide to only use them if I pick them up from the ground. While investigating here I discover that some kind of professor  that has gone missing. Ah… you know you realise that PoliceMan is a trainer class right? Though with our luck they have been reclassed to Burglar.. or something obscure like “Bubble-Tea-Vendor or Something” .  So when you can’t count on the  police I guess you carry the 10 year with a bunch of magical girls! That actually makes a lot more sense now that I say it out loud! I am an immortal Moth after all!  Okay  guess I will be a good girl one more time .. but after that , no more chores! I am here to do the Pokémon League!

Pinkie Plays: Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomiser Nuzlocke Episode 5 – Hisoka

Hello again little lights we are already at the fifth installment of our Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomiser Nuzlocke, and while the series isn’t going well in terms of views I am having a blast playing through the game like this! A blast AND a lot of pain I have made a weird twist with my neck and I am in a lot of pain right now. So this week you might see a lot of Moemon content as I focus on getting my YouTube started and getting rid of my pain and focussing on my health a bit as well.

The Team

Like with the past few episodes let’s begin with a recap of the current team! That team is unfortunately is one member short!  Right now our five precious moe’s are:

Ability: Stench (Has a 10% Flinch Chance and encounters less wild Pokemon)

Punching Oneself To Death

After the funeral, last episode, our journey begins with a trip to Slateport.. I forgot I could fish in that ocean and right now we can really use a good encounter! I am hoping for something like an Aron or maybe a Scyther. Oh boy.. I can’t wait to see what I will get…..it’s a WEEDLE! Reee!  That’s no Bueno!  I named it Chi-Chi and decided to grind it up until it becomes a Beedrill so I can see her ability. It has Hustle.. which isn’t bad for a Beedrill to have as it does boost Physical attack.. but in trade for a chance to miss… which isn’t great in a Nuzlocke! I might level it more if my other encounters will be worse though! Chi-Chi is carrying a Move though .. it’s Petal Dance.. which is a pretty powerful grass type move.. but since it locks you into attacking for multiple turns it is terrible for a Nuzlocke! Well.. Muk!  Time to move to Mauville then.

On our way to Mauville I got into a simple trainer encounter with a guy having a Dugtrio!  I switch Souji in and he gets confused by Swagger.  I fully believe I would live one hit and Dugtrio goes for Dig.. so I fully believe I can switch out.. then Souji oneshots itself. What the heck!?!  How did that happen.. he had a little bit of damage on him but he did way over half his own health in damage! That should not be possible! Well.. to the Death Box..I guess we will pick up Ika-Chan the Tentacruel. I begin grinding him up..this should at least give me some bulk. But grinding is going to take a while! I make a special rule  that catch up grinding  has no Permadeath.. I can level a Moe back up to the level of the party with Speed Up on, so I don’t lose hours and hours. It will also help with me not forming a bond with the new thing yet, so you don’t miss out on that. Souji had a sober funeral..  mostly because I already left a corpse on this route.. second because his insurance doesn’t cover self imposed demises. Luckily it hit itself so hard it was partially in  the ground already!

At the final level of the grind Ika-Chan learns Raindance which helps boost their water moves ..and now we are good to go again! Let’s defeat the final trainers up this route and head to Mauville city and get an encounter!  The bulkiness of Tentacruel allows for a much more progress then I had anticipated. Asuka and Ika both level up to level 22 catching up to the party fairly easily. So far I am succeeding at keeping everyone’s level close together but if other Nuzlockes are an indication that might change soon enough.

A Pink Clown

I reached Mauville which means I have to roflstomp Wally.. he uses the Super cool name Bug Catcher Landon to try and intimidate me.. but the boy only has a level 16 Kadabra. I would love to make it an event in the city..but yeah . .I literally only use one move to defeat my second rival! Now that the path to the gym is open to me.. I guess.. I will go hunt for Pokémon to fill the team or something.. bye Wally! Next I have an encounter at route 117, a fishing encounter at route 118. I could try to get a coin case and check what the Slot Machine Pokémon are.. and I can walk up north where I fight a family and maybe get an item. I go route 118 first for the fishing encounter because it is least likely to be good, due to being underleveled and of course I stumble in a double battle accidentally.  It forces me to swap in the Immortal Jigglypuff as Usagi is in danger but I win the fight fairly easily and Miku wants to learn Moonlight! No you don’t get a healing move! You can’t be hit!  Next fight!

Usagi washes the trainers that are on the route and my fishing encounter is a Togetic.. however since Togekiss doesn’t exist yet.. that Pokémon isn’t very good! I name it Lisanna and put it in the pc. It doesn’t have great stats and I am facing legendaries pretty much constantly, it’s ability Swarm powers up bug type moves which makes it even less usable. I can’t walk around with you..though I might carry it as Death Fodder if need be.  Let’s see if route 117 is better for me!  A Mister Mime Shows up there.. after I accidentally hit the speed up button instead of the sprint button and dash into the grass. Not bad! I swap in Miku and let her use Flail which now holds no power to reliably weaken my opponent. It breaks a lot of Pokéballs but in the end a great ball manages to capture it. It is a Mr. Mime indeed as the gender is male as well. I decide to name it Hisoka.. I mean a male pink hair clown with a feminine body.. pretty much spot on! 

One tedious training montage later, we travel north to fight the Winstrates! Hisoka’s moveset isn’t great , with Trash and Heat Wave as it’s offensive moves! It does possess both the barriers so that is a good thing at least but I would like if it would at least get one stab attacking move, so I can protect my dearest Miku! Let’s see how we fare against the Winstrate Family! After that we can challenge the gym! The Winstrates offer the perfect opportunity for Hisoka to catch up with the rest of the group! He even learns Psycho Boost… a move Gardevoir had as well!  While I do outlevel the Winstrates by a significant amount.. they are no slouches. Arcanine, Metagross, Aggron.  This family has some high quality Moe!  Since the battle is a gauntlet of four trainers, Hisoka almost ends up dying but I swap in Miku to heal him up a bit! Swapping him back in to Heatwave the Metagross as Miku can’t touch it. We win but we spend a lot of those Soda Pops we won on the beach to not have any losses here! On the way back I pick up a second Amulet coin, which I give to Hisoka.
With his barriers he is a good lead after all!

The Third Gym

This gym is made for double battle… but this time I wised up. I sneaked around trainers to talk to them and challenge them to solo battles. After all in Solo battles you have a lot more sense of control! The first gym trainer easily gets beaten. She uses a Weedle that gets finished by Ika-Chan and Hisoka uses Heatwave on a Pineco! The poor thing.. it looked so cute hiding in it’s armor and now it’s dead! The second trainer has a Milotic and an Anorith. Usagi and Murmur take care of those.. but not before I make a swapping error and Usagi takes some unneeded damage!  This forces me to retreat from the gym and heal up for the next part! With my team being as it is I am beginning to notice I can make a lot more  tactical swaps and no longer do I have to settle for the next best thing. T he second to last gym trainer uses an adorable Chinchou but I forgot to screenshot it.. and an Entei is the Moe of choice for the last trainer. For the first time in all my Gym battles I am sweeping these… do note that route 110 was littered with Jirachi and Articuno and since Articuno might learn Freeze Dry and Jirachi can use one shot moves as well.. I killed them all.. so I am a tad overleveled now .. I think

The fight with Watson is next.. or as he would like to be called Bug Catcher Scarlett!
The First Pokémon he sends out is a level 20 Victreebel! I lead with Miku! I already lost one Pokémon this episode, I am not going to make it two… especially since I am out of good encounters!  Umara can be useful late but for now she and Chi-Chi the beedrill are usable to me.. let alone Lisanna the Togetic. They can have their Cheetos party in Box 1. Miku defeats Victreebel who has Aeroblast.. Lugia’s Signature move and we go into the second round. Jolteon versus Murmur. My Porygon2 has an Earthquake so Jolteon should not be  too much of a problem… Jolteon outspeeds and deals 25% damage still and Porygon2 is fairly bulky! That would have killed Ika and Asuka. His next Pokémon is a Lugia.. cowardly I swap in Miku! Which is a good thing I did because that too carries Psycho-Boost! My guess is that it got randomised into the “confusion” move slot and that is why so many low level Psychic Pokémon know that move. The Final Pokémon is a level 24 Whismur.. I guess I wasn’t that over leveled after all!  I just got lucky in a gym for once! I decided to let my precious Usagi finish the pink thing!

The fight is done and I get a badge and a brand new move.. this time it’s ……..NIGHTSHADE?!  That would have been useful for the past few levels but I am JUST at the point where the move isn’t all that reliable anymore! It is a move that does set damage so it would be good when my type coverage was worse.  I am not having much luck with these types of moves.  I am content we got an easy gym win though! Right now we are about on par with the gym leader’s Ace which means a team of six should mean we are about the perfect level when we face Flannery. If we don’t encounter too many legendaries OR low level bugs! Maybe next week we can go about with having no funerals. With three deaths we are nearing the halfway point of our journey.. the fight against my father will most likely be easier.. his Slaking will be randomised.. but at the same time.. all it takes is one Huge Power Slaking with a fighting move and all my Moe can die! I feel alive! I am enjoying this journey…and I like how random it all feels!… I just need to control myself a bit more..for greater success! Now if you excuse me I have some lamps to stare at!

The Entire Moemon Nuzlocke Series

Pinkie Plays : Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomizer Nuzlocke (Episode 4) Errand Girl

Hello my Little Lights, I am back to playing Moemon Emerald, having lost Sakura last episode I have recovered well enough to brave the trails that come next with my magical girls?! How did Sakura die?! Well she fainted in the last episode during grinding .. and in a Nuzlocke when a Moe or Pokémon faints they are considered dead.  Read more details in the last episode! Which you can find at the bottom of this post! Today we are headed for Slateport  and hopefully all the way up until our next rival battle!  I haven’t played this in ages though.. so I am not sure what we will encounter! I do know our episode will start with a challenge on the beach!

Team Summary

Ace: Miku the Jigglypuff (Lvl 19)  Crush Claw, Camouflage, Flail, Super Sonic
Ability: Wonder Guard (Can Only be hit by Super Effective Moves)
2nd: Usagi the (C)Raichu (Lvl 18) Thunderpunch, Spark, Stockpile  Shockwave
Ability: Effect Spore (Can leave a Status Effect on Contact)
3rd C.C. The Gardevoir (Lvl 18)  Psychic, Light Screen, Psycho-Boost, Fake Out
Ability: Huge Power (Doubles the Attack Stat of this Pokemon)

Ability: Torrent (Powers up Water moves at low HP)

The Battle of the Beach Club

The Boat arrives at the beach of Slateport, a beach that is littered with trainers! I am pretty sure I get an item if I beat all the trainers here…or at least I think so.. so I challenge the first sailor I see. He calls himself Fisher Marilyn, his first Moe is a Minun.. since I lead Asuka.. it immediatly is a harsh reminder of our loss. Sakura would be so good against this. Right now the best swap is to switch in Jigglypuff again! His second Moe is a Graveler which  means I swap in Souji.It goes off without a hitch.. but then I get ambushed by a girl hiding behind a Parasol and I end up in a double battle! It makes sure Asuka is double attacked and takes some heavy damage with Souj taking out a Wailord leaving a Hypno alive. I decided to let Asuka use a Milk Drink and then I realised I read it wrong. It’s actually Souji who took the damage.. luckily everything ends up okay. But… stupid as I am .. I stumble into another double battle!…Fuuuuuu. Souji levels up but Miku needs to save everyone again!  She isn’t leveling fast  though!

My team ends up being so hurt that I have to go heal in the Pokécenter.. on my way back I decide to visit the Moemon Trainer Fanclub… which is kinda creepy! One guy offers to teach me Flame Wheel and Asuka can learn it.. so she learns… .Aerial Ace.. Oh.. that is weird! I knew Moves were randomised but I did not know static moves were replaced as well! Oh well at least Aerial Ace is more reliable then Sky Attack. We easily wipe most of these teams because they are at a kind of wimpy level!  I really expected trainers to be a bit closer to the gym leader but oh well! It will get through fast enough I bet! The Tate and Liza leap later on is huge anyway! We defeat the cutest little Voltorb.. BAM! It’s dead now! I win every battle of the battle of the beach and win a case of Soda Pops.. that might seem like a lame prize.. but in a Nuzlocke.. this is a godsent!

Pirates of the CariHoenn .. At Chores End

I go to the shipyard to deliver the Devon Goods but it turns out that the guy whom I have to give the package too is at another location and this guy that tells me also tasks me with delivering the parcel to this new location! …. So let me get this right! .. I SAVE your goods.. then as a reward you gave me a cheap cellphone.. then force me to go on a boat with an old guy  drooling over little girls… and I AM!!! A little girl! Then you make me deliver a parcel…but also force me to deliver a LETTER as an extra stop that forces me to venture to a Moe filled cave.. including insanely powerful ones like several Mewtwo and Moltres..then when I get the package on the location.. you ask me to go out of my way and find the guy in a museum or something?!  And I have to pay my own entry fee?! Jeesz .. no deed goes unpunished I guess! Reluctantly I head out.

Once I enter the Museum I see it’s taken over by an evil team….HOW HORRIBLE are the people in the pokémon world actually! The Museum attendants could have told me.. hey kid.. there is like a hoard of pirates here.. you might want to come back later… or HELP US an evil team is everywhere you are a trainer perhaps you can help us come in for free! But Nooooo Pinkie has to pay! Frick! How rude! The team seems to be quite nice though! The guy I beat earlier even gives me a move.. I wonder what it is! ….Sonic Boom! Huh! I am not having any luck there.. I am not using the two letter term because google docs shrinks it down to a trademark logo. So yeah! Sonic Boom only and always deals 20 damage.. but in a randomiser with full evolutions everywhere this move is worthless.. the only one who could use it was Sakura. Sniff.. I miss Sakura!

As soon as I go up the second floor of the Museum things change though! Team Aqua attacks as I want to give Mister Stern his stupid package.. now they want to take the items and since Stern doesn’t have any Pokémon on him.. I have to stop them!  I better get another reward for this! The Aqua Grunts are easy, but they are catching up in level very fast! They already use level 15’s.. then Archie the Pirate leader shows up and asks me if I am part of Team Magma.. What is a TEAM Magma?!  Why would they accept a 10 year old in their ranks! I fully expect to fight Archie as I am pretty sure I will fight Maxie in the Museum in Pokémon ORAS ..  but no Archie just bails. Finally something went my way.. time to get my reward…. a thank you from professor Stern.

I stomp outside and am greeted by a weird person named Scott! Scott wants to be my friend! He says he wants to follow me around… Scott is a grown man .. asking a 10 year old girl to follow her around! The HECK is wrong with the Pokémon World.. I mean sure I made the world a bit creepier by turning Pokémon into little girls.. but even then, people really take advantage of Children here! I guess it is time to go up North and find fame and fortune for myself! I stock up on a few super potions, and status healing items as well as five great balls!  Then it is time to leave this harbor town! Scott comes out of the battle tent and tells me if I want to try it! No.. I do not! It’s not that I don’t find it fun.. but it doesn’t do anything for the Nuzlocke and I can follow the rules there! So I am skipping it!

BrENDan

Encounter-Encounter-Encounter! I get a new Encounter!  I dive in the grass right away!  To find out what it is! I have a few great balls so catching should go smooth if I lead Miku! Using Flail she will not oneshot anything! Big Brain plays! It turns out to be a Tentacruel.. which is not bad. I name it Ika-Chan but decide to leave it boxed right now. Tentacruel is a bit of a tank and with Jigglypuff on my team I do not have a need for that role as for now!  Corphish will be a physical attacker when it evolves (if it would learn physical moves)  which is a much more needed thing in my team as Usagi and C.C are very much special oriented. Murmur right now is a physical attacker but her specialty will veer of into special.. She might get booted off the team if I get a better Earthquake user. 

As I move one a fat guy ask me if I have seen his son.. I tell him I haven’t and that I do not like to travel with boys! He acts surprised but says it is okay..giving me his phone number.. Okay thank you professor!  Let’s move on! I decided to hunt for items first on route 103 and I will briefly visit trick masters house as well. I want the items! They can be valuable! Asuka struggles in her fights.. but she manages to reach level 20 and evolves! She kind of likes pretty now! On Route 103 I also encounter a Lax Incense, an item that allows attacks to miss one of my Pokémon more often! I give it to Usagi! She is my dearest baby after all! Any attack she can avoid will be great! Miku now gets the Amulet coin! Trick Masters house is a puzzle house in the game that allows you to use your HM’s to solve puzzles.. a few good items are hidden in there… which for me now got randomised to berries. Everyone except for CC reaches level 20 with Miku and Usagi even reaching level 21.  The only one learning a good move is Murmur who learns Hyper Fang instead of Vice Grip!

Time to move up route 110 and fight my Rival! Brendan who likes to be called Bug Catcher Tia this time around .. is known to be the weakest rival in all of  the games and should be super easy…NORMALLY…  The first match is Gardevoir versus Primeape!  Okay That one I will easily beat.. but his Pokémon is level 18 already so it’s up to par with my team!.. Gardevoir should outspeed Primeape.. but it has Huge Power  and Starts with Protect.. I C.C. Should be able to live a fighting move from PrimeApe she is quad resistant..to fighting after all.. This wasn’t right! In this game Gardevoir is just a Psychic type.. it would not have mattered though.. Gardevoir  is killed by a critical hit after missing her own move.. Darn I was getting quite attached to C.C. .. this is a problem.. Primeape can kill Jigglypuff as well…

The only Pokémon that might kill it is Fearow.. IF it doesn’t outspeed me.  It does.. but Primeape goes for Focus Energy .. Aerial Ace is Super effective and finishes it off! Baltoy comes out.. and is easily finished off with Octazooka from Souji! My heart drops when I see Brendan’s last Pokémon…crabcakes.. he has a Lugia! Please don’t have Focus Blast! Miku I choose you! Lugia had Psycho Boost.. if I would have not had Miku.. I might have lost here! Lugia gets Crushed by Crushclaw… but I get Crushed by the loss of C.C.

C.C. was given a viking funeral on route 10. I asked Asuka to set her boat on fire with a Flame Wheel.. but since it was changed to Aerial Ace her boat was whipped away on the wings of friendship! As her body disappeared on the horizon, I noticed my heart already began to harden a little bit.. this death hurt less than Sakura’s… this journey would change me!  I already began to wonder if we should use Ika-Chan on the team.. but doing that would make my team EXTREMELY weak to most types. It will also be a hassle to grind her up! So we will wait until we get to Mauville!  Check out our encounters in that area near the daycare. That will determine if we will continue our journey with hope…or Despair.. but that is a tale for the next episode.

The Moemon Emerald Nuzlocke Series

Gotta Make ’em All: Turning Indigo Into A Pokémon

In January Indigo, who onTwitter goes by the name of John, despite not being his real name, became my highest Tier Patreon. As a “One Time Only” Reward,  along with quite a few other rewards. Indigo got to be made into a Pokémon (as well as him  getting a Pokémon Team  which will come later) . This is the post to do that! A huge thank you to John for supporting my blog as much as he does and for being a Hero Coconut. 

The Typing of John

Why do I use John, instead of Indigo?! Because he isn’t STAFF this time! He is in the spotlight!  Determining a type for the man is a bit harder than it would be for Irina who got this done to her as a thank you for her amazing interpretation of my Blog Tag. John I can place in all of the following types: Normal, Dark, Ice, Fairy, Electric, Steel, Fighting and Ground. To a lesser extent I can even place him in Grass and Rock.  There is an argument for ghosts as well albeit a flimsy one.   John had a typical greeting of addressing me as a Fleshy mammal implicating he in fact is not a fleshy mammal, which makes ghosts quite eligible.. but also, rock ground and steel. However just because it is funny I do want to make this Pokémon rendition of him a bit of a mammal himself. So we will be going for a dual-type style Pokémon with at least one flesh component. John can be an incredible edgelord , thinking it is cool to find a half eaten deer in the forest and showing me a picture (albeit cleaned up).  So Dark Type.. would be a great pick… however the Dark Type is called “Evil Type” in Japan… and that he is not!  So no dark type for Johnmon! 

Hailing from Finland would make him a great ice-type but I have already done the whole “she’s from Russia and Canada thus Ice-type hyuk hyuk”  with Irina. What makes John, John however, is that he is quite a war aficionado! He loves old wars, he loves Warhammer and just anything that has to do with soldiers, mercaniers, vikings and all that stuff. That Warrior aspect I would like to include in his Pokémon. He is also a gun nut! Unfortunately Guns are a big no no in Pokémon. Remoraids original design was banned because it looked too much like a gun.  Since these Pokémon have to be somewhat game viable let’s give him Guns..instead of guns!  I mean big muscles! That way we can refer to them as guns and everyone knows we really do mean guns!  Since John loves metal music, spikey things and bullets we will give him the Steel Typing and the Fighting Type. However John’s features will be his wide range. We will give him a custom ability. Which makes him less of a Pokémon if it just makes up everything.. .but here me out on this.  He gets three reinterpretations of Dhelmise ability Metal Worker, which gives the Ghost Grass anchor also STAB boost Steel type moves. John has THREE variants of this ability.  Edgelord, which will boost his dark type moves, Good-Guy,  which will give Fairy Types a STAB Bonus and Electrician which will offer that same effect to electric type moves.

Designing John

Finland has a wide variety of animals and I could easily see John being a bear. He is very huggable yet a fierce warrior as well. There aren’t even that many bears either!  However John is prone to overdesign, so that means he would most likely not be a Basic Pokémon. He would most likely be either a Stage 1 or Stage 2 evolution. So rather than creating that completely from scratch we will use a pre-existing pokémon and I don’t feel Teddiursa would be a great form for John, nor do I feel Ursaring would need an evolution. Instead we would give an unused Pokémon some love! Luckily there is one finnish animal that is present in the pokémon games that is unloved and could use something special. That is the Reindeer Pokémon.. and I know Lapland might not be Finland.. but it is close enough for Pokémon! So Reindeer John it is.  Well he evolves into more of an Elk.. but regardless! We will use Stantler as a Base. A regional variant with extra strong legs, and horns that look a bit more like clubs or something. It would be a Normal Fighting Type. The Male ones are the ones you would like to have,  that upon leveling it up while holding a Metal Coat evolves into Scarvet. 

Scarvet, like Stantler is a hybrid between all sorts of deers being close to a reindeer but not fully?! Who knows!  His antlers have turned into Blades. and he has grown several spikes to defend himself with.  Scarvet takes on more Centaur like features which can often be pretty fierce warriors themselves.  This allows Scarvet to learn moves like elemental punches, but also feel as a bit of a cavalier knight and now he has “guns” . His signature move will be called Buckshot, which will take the element of his ability, so dark, fairy or electric. A non contact physical move that deals elemental damage based on its users ability.  The ability a particular Scarvet has can be seen by the colour on his eyes. Yellow for Electric, Pink for Fairy and Black for Dark.  Buckshot in the anime would show a hand making a finger into a gun and then the Pokémon Blinks and elemental energy suddenly hits it’s target in the colour of the eye.  It’s bladed horns are most definitely not from space!

Other moves it will learn are moves such as Thunder Punch, Foul Play, Play Rough, Horn Leech, Mega Horn, Horn Drill , Bullet Punch, Close Combat , Head Charge and Skull Bash and a few special moves like bullet seed,  charge beam and other quasi military names reminding of weapons. Support moves like No Retreat and Sword Dance seem like great options for this Pokémon. While I know No Retreat is current Falinks signature move in later Generations these type of moves usually are given to newer Pokémon as well PLUS it gives me a chance to put a picture of Falinks here.. so Scarvet and me both win!

Pokédex Entries for John

Now that we have the Pokémon let’s think a bit about what he does.  For one let’s make him the mascotte of this region because.. why not! Where the original Stantler  was more of a pacifist that felled foes with trickery, these Stantlers will be more like John. “When Stanler’s existence was threatened by the hunt, it decided to make a stance against hunters… the harsh way as a result Stantler in this region is much more aggressive”.  Something in that nature. Scarvet’s Dex entry would read in a vein like this:  “Hardened by the flames of war this Pokémon has embraced Steel as it’s weapon. His muscles are so big that people often refer to them as guns, this Pokémon is quite the warmachine”.The other generations dex entry might read “Scarvet is a Pokémon that was used a lot in the last Pokémon War. While this Pokémon is not always friendly to the fleshy mammals known as humans, It will always offer it’s aid in a battle it feels is justified” In game you could find out a few more rumors about Scarvet. Mostly rumors about it’s eyes, three trainers will have spotted a Scarvet with an indication on what (post end game)  region they might appear in the wild.  

“I spotted a Scarvet in the mountains at night, It stared at me with Pitch black eyes as the night around it only seemed to get darker, it was drinking water from the skull of an unfortunate creature” one might say!  Another would tell you about their encounter with Scarvet. I was being attacked by (Evil Team) While I was fishing by the lake, A Scarvet saved me and stared at me with it’s Yellow Eyes for a moment. I could have sworn I heard the sound of thunder from it’s hooves as it ran away again”. The final one might be someone close to the main character, a rival, your mother or someone like that.  “I was on an afternoon walk through the forest when I met a Scarvet, it walked around me for a bit sniffing the food in my bag, it was playing with some Ribombee , you could see the fun in it’s pink eyes, as it frolicked about ”. Other lore would include Scarvet protecting weaker or wounded Pokémon, Scarvet fighting evil team members and potentially dying like Cubone’s mother. Yet it would also be very cruel to whatever becomes its prey, parading with that.

John’s Role

I think it is pretty safe to say, it is rather easy to determine John’s Pokémon’s combat role. He will be a Speedy physical sweeper that can come in three variants so it is hard to predict which one is coming in competitive.  Electric Dark and Fairy stab should give you some pretty huge typing cover as well so it will be a pace setter as a Pokémon. It can be a Pokémon that works great for both playthroughs as well as competitive. I imagine Scarvet performing better in Single Battles because the guessing aspect of it’s bonuses comes more into play there. You might be able to take a thunder punch from  Edgelord Scarvet, but Electrician Scarvet will be able to finish the job. It could see some competitive play.

In playthroughs this Pokémon would be a perfect all rounder to fill up a last slot of your party.  You just find/breed the one with the ability you want and add it to your team to gain perfection. Well unless you are like me and build your team with a  Fairy, Fighting, Steel core.  He is there to make things faint in the end and he is very well equipped  to do this.  Easy to play for everyone and functioning as a bit of a crutch to see how much more damage STAB will exactly mean for you. Scarvet is beginner friendly but also fun to experiment with for the more advanced players now that abilities of Pokémon can be swapped a bit more easily.

And that is just like John, he has a competitive edge to him, often playing LAN matches, he is versatile in what he does but he is fascinated by combat above all. He is a guy that will leap in front of you to save you from some nasty blows, just like Scarvet is a great lead Pokémon.  Yet he is also the person to get you into a fight because he is either being a knight a little too much.. or he just wants to see what his new weapons do (in Role Play situations, not real  life). He is friendly to everyone though maybe a bit intimidating if you’d meet him on the street after dark.. but if you get to know him better you will have one heck of friend that really would do so much for you and can surprise you even after years.  So that is how John would be a Pokémon!   Thank you for all your support to this blog! I really hope you like this post!

The Paradise Weekly Gazette 8 (11th to 17th Januari)

My dearest little lights, another week came and went!  While the blog still is quieter than it used to be this week, there has been a bit of an increase since last week so we are well on our way of establishing myself as a moth!  Big things loom on the horizon as I have been trying and very much failing so far to make a live 2d model of myself!  I might really need to hire someone for that!  Or get a lot better at making a model!  So far I haven’t even been able to really make shapes though! Anyway let’s check what happened last week!

Pinkie’s Posts

This week I tried to bring a bit more diversity , and it resulted in some nice interactions!  I never expected to find a fan of Princess Peachie’s  YouTube Channel here but I did! That was pretty amazing! The reactor has been following me for a while but we haven’t interacted that much so that was a definite win!  I also had a nice amount of reactions on my “Gadgets/Toys” blog!  So all in all I am a happy moth!  So let’s put everything in a row in case you missed it! Click on the cocktails to visit the posts!

I lost my first Moe in my Nuzlocke!  Read all about cute anime girl death right here!?!

I glorified Princess Peachie the YouTuber on my channel! Check out my feelings and my favourite episode here.

I looked at a lot of lamps and Kaiju goodies since that is what a Moth-Kaijuman should do! 

I did a complete take on Kanto in the scenario that Ash was a girly girl!

I saw Zombies sing their first Idol Song and I loved it!

I reviewed on of the favourite games I played lately

I am still building supplies of content to make blogging a bit easier, I have a lot of stuff done already, like 5 other episodes of my Moemon Nuzlocke and four more Final Fantasy VI Rom Hack posts. They won’t all come out next week though but it offers me so much security! I am having a lot of fun making those posts! I am really doing what I want to do! I haven’t been in the mood to watch lots of anime recently, but I have continued watching Cowboy Bebop so a post on that will come out next week for sure! I might do another Zombie Land Saga episode as well! Slowly picking that up after my burnout!  I have made some random topic content again, as I would play “Never Have I Ever” on some random website I found, and I will keep a promise to a Patron and turn them into a Pokémon!  I am also telling you about another of my Favourite YouTube series.. this one has to do with cards!  So yay! Content surplus!  I only have to write the YouTube one still!

Camp Coconut Updates

The Coconuts have been nice and quiet! They have been cleaning up the island after the whole Mario Kart Race we had going on last week!  The Woo Woo Fishy Coconut actually won that race and got a nice little trophy handed to it by King Coconut himself! They said it was the most beautiful day in their Coconut lives, which isn’t that surprising as they haven’t existed for too long!   This little Coconut , a patron to the island,  has since taken a bit of an ego! Fish and Dragon Koi’s are left everywhere for Sunny to clean up! It uses it to tell stories about great catches and always brings up the race results! The Island Guests seem to be loving the little drupe’s tales though!  

If you want to have a coconut that is represented with a link to your blog upon clicking on these coconuts consider supporting us on Kofi! Or by helping the blog in any other way!  I need someone who can turn my avatar in a 2d model for a good price, so if you know someone let me know and you can get your own Coconut as a finder’s reward.. or if you are a modeller yourself, you can even pick whatever fruit you want to be on the Camp Coconut Page and you get all the shout outs you want (as well as a fair compensation of course). Keeping my dream alive! Any form of kindness is appreciated so even if you don’t know anyone just leave a nice comment or say hi! 

Pinkie Away From Paradise

So I decided to rename this passage because Lockdown has been continued here!  It’s dangerous to go outside.. stay in!  Since I do have weaker lungs then most I have been quite reclusive last week! That pretty much means I have been glued to my keyboard. Aside from blogging we had a bit of an expository D&D  and this monday we should have the story arc climax, I prepped a lot of stuff for that this week! I’ve also purchased Face Rig and some other software to help pursue my VTuber aspirations, currently looking into video editing software that is laptop friendly and not too pricey.. just to get me started and so I can dabble.   Mallow gave me a great tip. Since I have a weak voice I probably need to look into text to speech!  In between blogs and games I experiment with that kind of stuff!

I spend a fair bit of my time watching movies!  I eat around 8:30 PM right now as a movie is on TV! Thus I have been watching a few movies! I watched my first ever Godfather movie , being Godfather 3… I.. .did not like it very much. I also watched Lethal Weapon 3 and 4, I liked those fine enough!  The fourth one had some issues with it’s story being a bit forced though!  I loved watching Stargate and Demolition Man. The absolute worst movie I saw was the “horror”  movie called Mother!  It is just strange for strange sake and there isn’t any rhyme or reason to it! Arceus what a slog! I kept hoping it would become good!  I am planning to get a shower bath thingy so I can relax my muscles a bit more!  I’ve been shopping for a sweet deal but haven’t ordered it yet! It’s sold out at many places and I really want a pink one! 

I have also been watching a bunch of VTuber things and some rewatching Princess Peachie’s princess in Japan series, mostly while doing my Nuzlocke! (I play that without sound..which can give me a bit of trouble).  That may have resulted in an unneeded death but at least I was hella entertained while I did this. I am not a big fan of how the songs of Gen III sound. The Pokémon Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire movie is to trumpetty! It sounds harsh and I don’t really enjoy it! I also use speed up a fair bit to make battles go faster which also ruins the music! So all the more reason to use speed up! Well at least until I become a Vtuber and can use those slow animations to read and interact with chat in some way shape or form!  Not a lot going on socially for me last week as I have been a bit anxious here and there, but everything is A-Okay now!

Posts that Impressed Pinkie



Hotpot-San is a person I do not visit enough! She’s a bit out of my league in terms of depths quite often and has seen so many things I haven’t so mostly  she leaves me scratching her head. It doesn’t help that she isn’t on WordPress but on something of her own design!  However sometimes I do see her promote a post and I am immediately amazed. The reaction of “casuals” towards deeper anime is a thing… are they wrong?!  Are they close minded? Decide for yourself and join the discussion! 

I want to watch more genuinely romantic non lewd Yuri! I want to watch more Idol Girl shows..  I can either dream about finding a nice girlfriend or dream about becoming an idol! But what if I could do both at the same time?!  With the newest Love Live spin off show I might be able to do the same. Space Whales made me put this anime on my list of anime I will want to watch…. I will forget I will forget for sure.. but maybe if I remember that there was this one show I wrote about wanting to see I can just browse back in my Paradise Weekly posts! If I don’t forget that as well… I really should have become an Elephant Kaijuman.  My memory is great when it comes to dialogue and useless stuff.. but names go through me like a meal through a skeleton!

Iridium Eyes reviews a lot of anime that isn’t exactly on brand for this moth! Even Hikaru no Go which I picked up isn’t really my “brand” I do like it a lot.. but it isn’t exactly my brand of anime!  One of these anime that never was on brand for me was Ghost in the Shell, I watched it after the Scar-Jo version and honestly… Nah the anime is still better, but I would not rewatch any time soon. Curtis points out some of the flaws of this beloved anime, while still talking about it very lovingly and I think that is a very good thing!  We need to be able to see nuances and the flaws in our favourites just as much as we need to see the good in movies like The Room and Dragonbleeeeergh Evolu*vomiting Moth noises* … nope can’t say anything nice about that one.. regardless. Curtis made a great write up about a classic!

Scott talks about the meaning of giving Anime numbered rankings, and how they are all subjective, I actually went and put a lengthy discussion answer on this , but subjects like these really fascinate me!  I like these! I totally agree with what he says but I also think there is another side to this! So if you want to join this discussion click on the gundam  head and give his post a visit.. based on how many likes that post has gotten , most of you already have though!

That concludes this post , have a Kaiju-sized GREAT next week and hopefully I will see you all on Paradise and your blogs! Again if you know someone who can help me get a model rigged please let me know and you will get a Coconut as a reward as well as my eternal thanks! If you an rig models, reach out to me and maybe we can come to a agreement.. and no I don’t mean I’ll just advertise and want it for free! I am not like that! I am cheap..but not THAT cheap! So Elon.. if you read this.. I recently learned you make about 775.000 dollars per minute.. all I ask you is for a minutes worth of money… maybe two if you really want to make me happy that is all! With three would I would start a new faith in your name!

Pinkie Plays : Moemon Emerald Extreme Radomiser Nuzlocke (Episode 3) A Brawl with Brawly

Hello once more little lights! It is time to continue my playthrough of a very special Pokémon game.. modded so instead of Pokémon it is all Magical Girls. We have had a great start so far and now are nearing the second gym with zero fatalities.. but a fair few close encounters! With our wonder guard Jigglypuff things are looking good for now.. but what about  the rest of the team! Will we be able to defeat Brawly.. what team and moves will he have.. and what will he be called! Find out in today’s episode..  or read back on the other Nuzlocke posts at the bottom of this piece.. Basics and rules are explained in Part 1. The entire series can be found in the post Carousel at the end of this post!

Poorly leveled!

We start the episode off with a Team Recap! Currently we have Sakura the Rhyhorn with the ability static, to paralyse her foes on contact. Currently she only has ground type moves which led her to be nearly killed by a Shadow Tag Zapdos.. a Flying Pokémon with an ability that prevents pokemon swapping out! Through the use of struggle she was saved and leveled to level 13.  We have Usagi the (C)Raichu  who is level 14 who can cry tears that causes effects if other Moe’s make physical contact with her. She only carries electric moves. We have got C.C. The Gardevoir who has the Huge Power ability and rolls with moves like Fake-Out, Psychic, Psycho-Boost and Mist Ball. Umara the Slowpoke has Keen Eye with some more basic moves like Water Gun and Bubble.. but she also rocks  Luster Purge and reflects! Murmur the Porygon 2  has the ability poison point and can attack our foes with Vice Grip and Earthquake while she also is the cut user of the team and can prevent swapping Pokémon by the use of mean look! She is level 13.  Our Ace is the Adorable Miku the Jigglypuff who with the Wonder Guard ability can only be hit by super effective moves (and thus fighting moves) She attacks with Crush Claw or Double Slap and can sing Supersonicly to confuse her foes. She also has the move Camouflage which can change her typing to get more mileage out of Wonder Guard …maybe!

Last time we were asked to deliver a letter to Steven Stone.. who hangs out in some strange cave in Dewford town and today’s adventure begins there.. with me strolling along the beach looking for hidden items, finding a Big Pearl AND a Big Mushroom! While it is nice to have some cash money Dewford town doesn’t actually have a Pokémart so for now they are useless.. it also means I can not purchase potions unless I travel back.. but then I would have to travel on the perverts ship again.. and an old man named Briney who has a very loving relation with a Moe Girl called Wingull.. so I decided to enter Granite cave. A hiker gives me the HM for Flash.. but without a HM slave to teach it .. this isn’t going on my main team! Time for our encounter.. with Umaru being on the hotseat of being kicked off the team things are exciting for her! She might become my flash user! That does turn out to be the case when I find out that my encounter is a Corphish (I love that Pokémon). I capture it  and since it is male.. looks like a girl and has twin tails I decide to call it Souji after Souji Mitsuka. Umaru disappears in the PC for now.. but not before finding a second encounter.. Squirtle.. darn that would have been better.

Souji has the moves Rock Tomb and Pain Split for now.. and is level 8 so we will need to grind her up!  Which is a cool way to discover what Pokémon I could have gotten. Umaru is quite happy to be in a PC with a Spearow I named Asuka. They have a little party with cheetos! In the cave I find Paras, Haunter, and Charmander as well as a Doduo.. I decide to forsake switch training and only use Souji to level up on Charmander and the Doduo. Souj almost gets killed by a Muk due to me using the speed up button a bit too much! I need to stop doing that.  Switching into Usagi she kills the Muk and levels up to level 15 while Souji learns Payday at level 10.. Free money for me.. but not a great move. It does allow me to grind on the Squirtle and Luvdisc that I encounter later as well and at level 13.. Souji learns the water move Octazooka! So now  he has a great move!  These Pokemon are hitting me hard though so I decide to grind the entire party out until level 15. The need for this is immediately shown because I STRUGGLE here.. at one  point Murmur gets poisoned with no more potions in my Inventory.. she would be killed for sure.. but apparently I failed to sell Morning sun! In a desperate attempt I teach it to Murmur and pray I encounter something before she dies of poison! It works. I heal her and barely make it to the Pokémon Center… I need to go back to get some potions!

The Search for Steven

I go back to Petalburg and Decide to level my weaker Pokémon in the grass there.. that other cave might just have level 8’s but suddenly Haunters and Dusclops started showing up left and right tearing my team to shreds. I pick up a couple of potions, a set of antidotes and some more Pokéballs… knowing fully well that Mr Briney is chasing the young girl around the table again! I can’t let this last too long! When everyone is level 14 I go back.. and will look for Steven. Things are going south fast.. as I descent further in the cave.. those Dusclops turn into wild Mewtwo encounters… who outspeeds Sakura so she can’t guarantee to run away. A hard fight later.. Sakura learned of the Earthquake.. and is on 2 hp!  I am trapped in darkness.. am I really supposed to take Brawly down first?! Well.. I am lost in the dark now! Might as well try to avoid using Flash whatsoever! Umaru is still having her party after all.. The wild Mewtwo is part of the same route as Souji was.. being in a granite cave.. so I can’t even try to catch it.. unless it is shiny.. but I think shinies aren’t in this romhack! (shiny clause is a special rule that states you can capture shinu pokémon even if the encounter is not eligible to be captured)

The way towards Steven is a gruesome trial , while my Pokémon are powerful.. My team is extremely weak to grass and has no good counters for ghosts yet.. and what do you know this cave is filled with these sorts of Pokémon!  It doesn’t help that I don’t remember this game very well.. but well on my way I at least encounter what Souji is going to evolve into.. for a brief moment I forgot Crawdaunt was dark type and I nearly got CC killed.. but luckily swapping into Miku is always the correct answer! Since I really do want experience on my Pokémon though I can’t constantly lead her. Every floor my HP is chipped of a bit more.. but I finally reach Steven. He gives me the move Uproar for delivering the letter.. which. .isn’t particularly useful to me!  I want to exit the cave with an escape rope I bought but I realise I have not taken enough screenshots in the cave yet.  I miss a few for my posts.. so I need to go back in and hope you don’t notice my Pokémon’s level… or read this line! While I do I encounter a Moltres..  Luckily C.C could one shot it with Psycho Boost. Well.. at least I found Steven.

Little Gym of Horrors

With everyone being at the abysmally low level of 15 .. it is time to face the gym leader. Note that the previous gym leader’s ace was this level as well so I assume that EVERYTHING here  will at least be this level.. if we face  Regi.. we might lose monsters here. Immediately I forget that Brawly’s Gym Puzzle in this game was darkness, I am more used to the “puzzle”  in Oras and I get in a Double Battle Unprepared for what is to come! As Sakura and Usagi come out, the opponent’s send in Swampert and Ampharos.. . This can kill Usagi!  I want to swap her out.. but Swampert has got the move Arena trap.. which basically means that Usagi is dead already! I need a miracle here! Round 1 I let Usagi use Stockpile to up her Defences.. the Ampharos Attacks her but the Swampert uses Water Sport … Bonemarang takes half of Swamperts Health… I am willing to lose Sakura here.. but Usagi is my Baby I need to keep her safe if possible! Round 2.. Usagi Stockpiles again.. the Swampert uses a thunderwave to Paralyse Usagi… thank Arceus! The  Ampharos uses minimize. Sakura finishes Swampert off with a second Bonemerang. With the taste of vomit in my mouth from stress I let Sakura sweep here.. while I swap Usagi out for Miku .. just to be safe because of the minimises.  This isn’t good I am way too attached to Usagi already! Looks like she won’t be the only one crying!

The next fight.. against a gym trainer which I make sure to battle Solo isn’t much easier.. the woman uses a Kyogre for crying out loud.. still leading Sakura I know I have to rely on Usagi to clutch this one! I need her to take a hit from a Legendary… she does so like a champ and did not even cry that much! The Kyogre lives a hit from Usagi though and brings her well into yellow health some tears flow.. but soon the tears are washed away by the blood of the slain enemy Kyogre.. The stress of it all is actually starting to get to me!  This isn’t an easy gym! The enemies are slightly lower level than me.. but these are all such powerhouses! The Third Trainer uses a Seaking.. he stands no chance against my team..but Sakura needs to swap out again!  This time I try to let Souji take advantage of Payday to rake up some extra coins .. I am going to need them! The final fight before the gym leader uses a Puppitar who has a sprite that has way too much work in it for a Puppitar! The Pupitar fight levels up C.C. and she learns Light Screen! I make room for it over Mistball! Praise be to  Baby Mew, I have both the barriers now! This will allow me to live so much more!  I just wish I had them on the same Pokémon!

I take a little breather before the Brawly fight before I move back in. Brawly tells me he would like the be called Bug Catcher Jill. I lead Miku as  I am  too scared to use anything else! His first Pokémon is a Houndour.. okay we can take that! It has the poison point ability and poisons Miku..so I am spending resources to keep her free of that status! Eventually Miku takes down the Houndour and she is up against a Wooper, who tries to put Jigglypuff to sleep.. how ironic. It is level 19 though.. I am 3 levels under!  I might need to grind again already! The last Pokémon is a level 16 Lombre! Since no one is super effective against it I decided to let Miku sweep the gym! What do I get as a reward for being scared to death half of the time?!  The Move .. Defence curl… Wow.. that sucks.. even for early gym standards!

The First Death

Before heading to Slateport I decide everyone needs to level up to level 18. I know the Gym in Mauville is a bit away.. but I am on the level of regular gym trainers right now .. if not a tiny bit over.. My team isn’t balanced enough yet to play around typings smartly and I do have a lot of unevolved Pokémon, only CC and Porygon 2 (in this Generation)  are fully evolved.  Well Usagi as well but she is my darling little baby! I don’t want to risk her! So a few levels on her won’t hurt! During grinding however.. something terrible happens! Sakura gets killed!…By A luvdisc! One of the weakest Pokémon in the game! It does outspeed Rhyhorn so Sakura failed to run from the Water Type which before I have only seen carry Water Pulse.. and my 2x it’s level Rhyhorn could survive one hit of that.. poorly but she could!  I was grinding and most of my other Pokémon were damaged so I felt running was the safer route.. when Luvdisk used Waterspout! A move that deals more damage the more HP you have. Since Luvdisk was at full HP.. Sakura got washed away… I am sorry girl!  You will be missed.. Asuka the Spearow joined the team for now.. which involved an awful lot of grinding! But I figured since I already had a Psychic Type and a Water type.. the Flying type would be better to deal with our weakness to grass.. though with Sakura gone.. the weakness was kind of fading already!

Usagi destroyed the Luvdisc and everyone caught up to the level of the Gym Leader we beat. Asuka learned Milk Drink which is one of the best recovery moves.. but other than that no real moves were learned. Jigglypuff learned Flail Over doubleslap. I told Flail is a bad move but if Miku gets poisoned I can let her take damage until she is really low health and use Flail with a high base power… yet low mortality rate (if I have staked out my opponents move) Wading through the mountain of Luvdisc corpses.. Sakura was buried looking out on the Gym.. she had saved her friend Usagi from the crazy Swampert before! The Gym where she pulled her weight hard but also was in danger a lot.. We all boarded the pevert’s ship again.. not even caring he was lewding his tiny girl again. We all felt empty and not just because we ran out of Power Points.. on the way to Slateport .. Usagi cried for the loss of her friend… and so did her trainer…..

The Paradise Weekly Gazette 7 (4th to 10th Januari)

Greeting little lights of mine, my first full week as a Kaijuman has passed.  A new(ish) style , a lot of staring into lamps, much gaming fun and some anime later! How did it go?!  Well ……Pretty terrible! Huh?! Really?! Yep, I had one of my worst weeks yet! But ..do you wanna know a secret?!  This week has been one of the most fun I had with creating content yet! So yay for that! So will things change next week? Maybe a bit.. but I am having fun!  So Maybe not!

Pinkie’s Posts

This week I have been starting Let’s Play content , and so far I have clearly not found an audience for it! I have been delighted to make content like that in this way though! Just me with a few games I like going deep and playing to my heart’s content! It has been a blessing!  I can have felt so much motivation to write again, so much motivation to game again, both boost each other and I am having so much fun! Now I know a lot of you aren’t actually into video games so it does make sense.. but I’ve only gained 5 likes on two of my Let’s Play posts.. Don’t get me wrong though I am not upset about it… I kind of like it weirdly.  Well that’s wrong.. but I feel like I am good enough having fun, and sharing me having fun.. rather than getting lots of likes.  Yet in case you missed it here are my posts of this week. Visit them by clicking the coconut!

I talk about my new V Blogger Persona in this post!

I play a Pokémon game with cute Girls instead of Pokémon in this post!

I listen to some awesome video game music in this blog!

More cute anime girl Pokémon…including the Ultimate Waifu can be found here!

I watched me some Zombie Land Saga (Episode 2)

I played a RomHack of one of the Best JRP’s Filled with Anime References

Next week I will continue chasing my VTuber/VBlogger dream, so there will be a lot of content in the same style! There might be more variation as I plan to bring more variety in my content. For example I plan to do a “series” of posts that highlight some of my favourite content creator series on YouTube.. as it is my dream to one day branch out to it. I am also having ideas for a new “What If” like series.  Yet rather than making episodic content I will look at how a scenario would evolve on a grander scale. Think of stuff like “How would the remainder of Tengen Toppa go if Simon was killed instead of Kamina” I’ll probably start with a rework of “What if Ash was a girl”  covering the entire Kanto region story. I am not sure if it will be posted, as for now my focus is on building material and having fun , and my let’s plays do give me a lot of fun.. but expect content like that soon. Also expect a lot more Moemon.  I will also go shop for weird and fun Japanese items again!  This time inspired by my new found Mothiness and being a Kaijuman I hope it will be funny!

Camp Coconut Updates

The staff was in awe with my transformation to write some posts this week! Sunny was very intrigued and has been talking to the water surface a lot! Indigo has been spending time dimming the lamps.. to keep me from getting distracted and I made them undo it! I need my lamps.. and Kuro has been trying not to simp over me.. so I tasked them with watching a lot of VTuber content so they can advise me properly and give them someone else to simp on!

The coconuts have been pretty active!The  Buddy Coconut has been helping me pay for my domain whose payment was due this month!  So we can keep Paradise up for another whole year!  Meanwhile the Woo Woo Fishy Coconut and the  Hero King Coconut came out to play with the guests while I was cocooning!  I really appreciate them for stepping up and providing so much entertainment to the guests. Though they cheat with Limbo!  They are so small no one can beat them!

Woo Woo Fishy Coconut tried to organise a kart race.. kind of like Mario Kart. However there aren’t that many tiny motors for them to build karts out of. The Warrior King Coconut tried to quest for such motors .. but he found a cool looking skull and spend time trying to put it on the pommel of his sword.. something so tiny.. it must have been a tiny bird or maybe a fish skull or something.. Either way since the Warrior King doesn’t know anything about crafting gear like that.. it did not work out! Thank you everyone who has supported me this week or this month!

Do you maybe want to help them out in our next adventure!? Make a Kofi donation to get named once and get your own coconut avatar or become a Patreon to  be mentioned every week! Hero King Coconut approves! Of course he says some edgy stuff about “If you don’t ” but don’t worry about that! I am happy if people just interact with the blog as well! Of course money made will go to pursuing my dreams so King Coconut being the White mustachioed pal he is is rather adamant in this! Pro tip if he is bothering you.. his weakness is hills!

Pinkie Away from Keyboard

The 50% Real girl part of me is in heavy isolation, 1 February I have a super important hospital meeting and I can’t miss out on that.. I can’t be sick.. it’s one of these academic research types of hospitals that can improve my quality of life 100 fold ..but if I have to cancel the appointment on account of some sniffles I’ll probably have to postpone until the covid situation clears here. Since everything is under heavy lockdown here.. there isn’t much else to do then isolate either.  So I have been mostly playing games and on occasion cooking a little bit! I might host an online convention in the netherlands.. based on a user created content idea.  We are doing some market research on it now.  My friend is more positive on this idea than I am as I see a lot of technical limitations but who knows!

Kaijuman me has mostly been searching for budget friendly options to turn myself into a 2d model so I can do streaming content or YouTube content, I can pretty much draw my own emotions by now just the states between those emotions are complex and I can’t grasp rigging properly! I have also made a stream layout already and it is featured in the Zombie Land Saga review of this week! I even hit a lot of easter eggs in them to some of you guys out there!  I have enough coin on my blog paypal to afford a rigged model on Fiverr.. but I am afraid I might be delivered something of poor quality. If any of you have a good idea where to find a good rigger, let me know!  Other than that , to protect my real life self I have mostly been staying indoors and looking at lamps. Toy Stores are closed so I can’t even build lego cities for me to walk over and destroy! I tried that once and a lego got stuck under my foot! .. I would rather be hit by one of Godzilla’s Atomic Breath attacks than a Lego in my foot

Starting this year I will not be doing completely custom images anymore, and instead I am going to use avatars for link posts! This will really help me with time.. and the writers with their own brand so everyone wins! Click the avatar to visit some amazing posts!

I used to be a big Star Wars fan, and that love is still kind of there! It is hidden underneath a lot of negativity towards Disney though, to me that company has shown so much arrogance and that it is utterly unable to empathise with it’s audience that it just keeps doing what it does. With a few hits here and there! I do still love the Mandalorian.. but I always need to wait until a season finale has passed so I can binge shows because I do not want to support them for too long. I haven’t seen the Mandalorian season 2 yet, because I am waiting for WandaVision to have aired so I can binge both shows in one month! Wooderon’s series on the Clone Wars is a great proxy to get that good feeling, without supporting a company I feel is definitely on the Dark Side. 

While I do consume significantly less anime than most of you, I do love it still! I however am one that is fairly oblivious to the technical , and back end aspect of it.. the history of it all! Luckily Mari over at Starting Life from Zero has got me covered with this amazing post.. that has a lot of subsequent installments spanning across the week! A definite must read for any anime fan. Mari has great taste in anime as well. Although the latest recommendation from Marie, in Utena isn’t resonating with me too much. Five episodes in and I feel nothing,  I’ll try to struggle my way through but Utena might be a drop for me.  Perhaps I will keep watching it but just don’t review it on an episode basis who knows!  I totally did not recommend her post as a peace offering! (But I hope it helps) 

Celestial Sparkles is a great and creative blogger, who I have come to see as my Kohai of sorts!  I saw Cele took some inspiration from my visuals and I felt so proud! I really hope to see her do well, there is something really heartfelt about her! For her 2021 goal she hopes to achieve 50 followers and if you aren’t a follower I think you should really check out what she is about! She really loves Mecha anime, she has a very similar style in blog-tags to yours truly and she is doing her twelve days of anime challenge soon so for any anime fan there that doesn’t follow her yet. As well as all STAFF and everyone interested in one of the sweetest members in the community! Do follow this blog! Just check out how sweet she is!

For the last part I will post something everyone will already know most likely!  But the section is called Posts That Impressed Pinkie, not “Bloggers I’d like to Highlight’ .. because trust me.. this next one needs no shoutout from me! She is the biggest and one the most talked about Bloggers in the anime community! I am talking of course about the return of Karandi James of 100 Word Anime! Our Champion has returned! I was super excited about that! Great to see some good news in 2021! Welcome back Karandi , I look forward to see your blogs once more!

And that is it for this week’s update! I included my plans in earlier segments to keep everything a bit more focussed. My Own content,  Staff Content, Coconut Shout-outs , and other community members! I hope you will have an amazing new week! And keep chasing your dreams my little lights! Moth-Pinkie loves you all! Though maybe I do love lamps more!
