Pinkie Plays: Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomiser Nuzlocke (Part 1) The Amazing Starter

Greetings little lights in my life, my first actual content post as a Virtual Blogger and Kaijuman is of course… a Pokémon post….kind off! I started a Nuzlocke when I was still a mortal, but I played so far ahead of my writing that I kind of forgot what happened! So this time I will write along as I play! …  This time the cute animals will be replaced by cute girls!  As we start our very own Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomizer Nuzlocke.

What is A Nuzlocke!

Here we go again! A nuzlocke is a mode in Pokémon where you can only catch the first Pokémon you encounter each route! A Pokémon that faints in battle is considered dead and you HAVE to give it a nickname so you get more attached to it! In our version we will play a randomised hack of a Pokémon game I own.. but yet it will be played on an Emulator.
All Pokémon have been “randomised” so that means if I would normally find a Pidgey.. I might encounter a Mewtwo now instead. Or vice versa. Items, trainer names , abilities and movesets all have been completely changed..though Pokémon will be biased to learn moves of their respective typing.  There will be a few additional rules such as.. if I encounter a Pokémon I already have, I can catch another and my own special rule.. if I HATCH a duplicate.. that specific Moe gets an extra life.  Since this Rom does not have sprites for all Moe’s if I encounter a regular Pokémon instead of a Moe.. it doesn’t count as an encounter, they can still kill my girls though!

Minor rules include me having protection from wipes by Dragon Rage, before the second gym and a lot of other circumstantial stuff that I will bring up when we get there. The point is , this offers a bit of extra challenge to a Pokémon game. For challenge reasons I can’t grind to be stronger than the Gym Leaders Ace either.. because on emulators I could just speed up and wash everything after grinding… What enforces me to keep these rules in a written report of this?! Nothing! You will just have to trust me! … The trainer will be named Pinkie like always.. and the Nuzlocke ends after completing the Pokémon League, or after a full team if six wipes! No need to defeat Steven End Game… (as it would probably would involve a lot of grinding) with that  It is time to see how our adventure will go!  Professor Birch greets me and shows me that this.. is a Pokémon.

The Start of my Journey… 

For some strange reason mom in this game has stuffed me in the back of a moving truck and forced me to travel with the boxes like a piece of trash while she got there in another way! A lot of non Moe looking monsters are busy carrying some boxes but at least she got the tv running! … Great priorities mom!  The Mom in Gold at least helped me with my journey… you give me a room.. then kick me out of the house to go play with that creepy neighbour kid Brendan who  puts his balls beside his bed!  … I touch his balls .. and then he decides to show up! He must have been in the bathroom or something he asks me who I am and then realises I must be Pinkie… I really wonder how long Mom has already been here that she would talk about me already! But sure I say hi to the guy! He did not know I was a girl… Darn those stupid Animaniacs! They made my name Gender-Ambiguous! Brendan says he is going to help his father catch some pokémon before he starts playing on his computer. This is a 10 year old who already has a double bed.. so that can’t be good so I book it out of there!

I walk outside when I hear a middle aged man scream! He is being chased by a Zigzagoon Girl.. he tells me the only way to fight her is grab his balls and pull another girl out of them..So I can pick one.. one girl Onix.. is a solid pick.. but since Onix has lower attack than an Oddish it isn’t amazing. Unown is the second Moe girl and we can clearly skip her.. the Third one… Holy Heck It is Jigglypuff!  Yes She’s my girl!  I choose her and see that instead of Sing and Defence Curl.. I think she actually has a Crush Claw great move that does damage based on HP stat. So It is time to attack the Zigzagoon girl and kill it! It turns out I got super duper LUCKY… not only does my Jigglypuff have one of the strongest normal type moves in the game! She has the strongest ability in the game! Wonder Guard.  Which means she can not be hit by ANYTHING except super effective moves.. and since she is a normal type.. that means she can ONLY be hit by Fighting type moves!  Now this is still a randomiser so several Pokémon can pack fighting type moves.. but for now it is a great start. Since she is basically untouchable and she sings! I decided to call my Moe.. Miku!

Gathering More Moe

Now that i have an absolutely broken Starter .. I have confidence that this run will be truely amazing! With Wonder Guard up I zoom across the map to fight Brendan..  who has a Blissey… it can’t touch me and I level up three times! We go back to our town that is filled with puddles for no real reason other than to show a neat graphics thing and I get Pokéballs. I move back to the route and prepare for my first encounter! It is a Porygon 2! Another Pink Moe AND another normal type! This one carries the move Earthquake and Vicegrip so it is another Power house.. since Miku can’t be touched.. it isn’t that hard to bring this one down to catching range.. It got a bit scary for a bit since it has poison points .. which CAN hurt my little darling.. but I lived and added Porygon 2 to my team. I name it MurMur because she has the number two written on her forehead.. I grind her up to level 5 switch training her with the immortal ghost of Miku and it is time for our second AND third encounters in rapid succession!


I should have played the lottery today because my Route 103 encounter is…. A Slowpoke! Another Pink Moe! I named it Umaru for obvious reasons!  And Decide to level it up to level 5 as well to get ready for my route 102 encounter! I am running low on Pokéballs, and there aren’t that many pink Pokémon left for me to add to my team!  On Route 102 I however encounter.. a Slowbro! Another Pink Moe! But this one counts as a dupes clause. I already have this Pokémon.. at least it’s an evolution line so it means I can skip it! 

Since I would prefer to evolve it myself, I decide to let it go and go hunt for another monster. Well or another girl.. so my Harem.. is passing on Slowbro..as I will get her later!  My new first encounter is a Raichu.. which I capture fairly easily. I decided to name it Usagi as it was the only blonde twin tailed girl I could think of that fitted in an 8 letter limit! I discover Umaru has Luster Purge.. which is a legendary move reserved for Latios and Usagi Carries Thunderpunch and Shockwave! Which both are great moves as well! It is time to go visit my dad! While restocking Pokéballs I discover they sell a Moonstone in this Pokémon Center as I randomised items and the first one has ALL the evolutionary items..but I decide that Jigglypuff will never evolve!  Because it will lose its ability! I just hope it will learn some set up moves to power up it’s punches!

Hi Dad! Thanks for letting this weird Astma Kid have a Pokémon instead of me!

Now it is time for some trainers, the first one has a Torchic which Murmur makes mince meat off.. I am not sure if she would like chicken ..or of humans.. but she is dead anyway because remember this is a Nuzlocke.. what faints is dead!  The second trainer has an adorable Shellder which I quickly turn into Shell Dead and things seem to be going smooth! I am also enjoying journalling like this as I play the game so yay for the Virtual Blogger Lifestyle choices working out so far! The bug catcher dude got renamed to manager Scott.. and after the Clam Moe has been defeated … he sounds out a Meganium..which can most definitely one shot Umura and even Usagi the Cryshu.. because Meganium turns out to have Solarbeam! Luckily we can safely swap to Miku the Jigglypuff who is immune thanks to Wonder Guard.. she finishes off the Meganium and I stroll on with my little girls.

In the next battle we get a bit of a magical girl showdown when Usagi faces a Staryu! Usagi has a good cry first but then uses Spark to attack the Staryu turning this magical girl story more in a Madoka scenario!  Victory is obtained once again and we begin to rake in money! Since I fight rarely with high XP giving Pokémon as well, leveling is also going smooth! It is really nice to start a nuzlocke like this normally it is stress and terror and this feels like a leisurely stroll! I encounter a pretty slutty Umbreon and after I scold it for a bit for dress kind of like a hussy .. I decided it is better to put this girl out of her misery! She belonged to a trainer after all! The last one before I move to Petalburg where I encounter my father, who tells me I am not strong enough to face his gym yet… which is true..but I could do it if Jigglypuff had Toxic as a move.. but regardless he chores me with going with Wally to find him a Pokémon .. one forced tutorial later I  am back at my dads and I can move onto the next town and towards the first gym.. trough Petalburg woods.. Wally caught a Barboach by the way!

The Stress begins!

Route 104 lets me pick up a Rhyhorn which I name Sakura. You know the buff chick from Danganronpa they do look a bit alike! I do think I got the short end of the stick on this route a bit.. I do really like Rhydon but there was also an Altaria or Chicorita.. I would have really liked to pick up one of those two! Still Rhyhorn is pretty neat! It’s static ability that allows to paralyse opponents is a bit lackluster on her.. but it’s not bad! I defeat Technician Jo.. who is walking a dress and sunhat.. quite easily but I realise that  Sakura will have trouble hitting bird Pokémon it also is super weak to both grass and water and since I can’t tell which Pokémon has these types of moves.. I don’t think she will last all that long before falling victim to a misplay of mine.. I do need to level her so she is at risk! During the first fight in the Petalburg Woods we encounter a trainer that has an Electrode.. which is ADORABLE! I want one!

Hoping I might encounter it in the Forest I ready myself to capture another adorable girl! The Pokémon I found is Muk however.. which is a Pokémon I do enjoy but I also know it has a bit of a trickier catch rate. This one is not easily caught in A pokéball! Indeed the Muk refuses to go along and thus we fail our Petalburg Woods encounter and now I have to traverse these dangerous woods with one team member less than I could have had.. which makes catching the next encounter harder as well.. at the rate my Pokémon grow.. they might be a bit overleveled when we come out the forest. Distributing levels seems key here so everyone.. except for Jigglypuff is at risk! I decided to lead Umaru the Slowpoke because it feels lucky! I guess my amazing trainer instincts were right as the first team Aqua encounter has a Diglett! It is level 9 though! I am already underleveled here! I expected it to happen before the first gym but this is really fast! The grunt gets defeated without any casualties though but now I have to lead Sakura! I forgot to do this and Umaru immediately gets poisoned! I forgot poison kills are still in this Generation… Oh oh.. now I have to rush back.. wasting two of my five extremely scarce potions I get Umaru to the hospital safely! I need to buy some antidotes here! Back in the woods I immediately encounter a poisonous Pidgeot.. which poisons Sakura.. to early in the woods to use my item I need to head back again! Wasting two more Potions! Only one left.. and no more money! 

Luckily my next forest trip goes without much trouble! A Rich boy challenges me with a Psyduck.. So confidently I swap in Usagi the Raichu.. who gets hyper-beamed in the face.. she survives but she looks pretty battle damaged! She cries of course! I still have a few trainer fights to go and only one potion that now I have to use on Usagi! Things turned around fast for me here! It only gets worse when my first double battle.. which are the scariest things in such a Randomiser sends in a Mewtwo… these are two four year old girls.. how did they get that! Luckily.. he just meditated!  I swapped in Miku to be safe and she levels to 11.. with the rest of the party being at around level 9 or 10 ! We are almost there.. almost to the first gym city Rustboro! Just one more trainer to go! It is a fisherman sprite he claims to be a Water Pokémon trainer but leads with Torkoal.. out of sheer instinct I put Usagi first and she does manage to oneshot the turtle girl..  his other two Pokémon Starmie and Slowking are indeed Water Pokémon so Usagi punished them in the name of me!  Without casualties we have reached the first city.. where a lot of crime and the first gym awaits! But that is a story for next time!

With that I conclude my first let’s play blog! It was great fun to actually write as I play so I will do this with a few other games as well in the near future! I got plenty of things I want to try and expect this series to show up fairly regularly so it will be easy to follow!

Pinkie’s Who Would Win: Naruto VS Luffy

Hello my dear island guests. It is time for yet another new series on my blog. It’s all based around a simple question. A question anime fan ask all the time! Who would win? Now of course Pinkie’s Paradise is a haven of peace and joy! Gladiatorial combat will not be part of it. Ram would have to much cleaning to do! That’s right she stayed! So instead for each face down we let our combatants duke it out in more mundane situations. This time the Gum Gum Pirate and the Nine Tailed Ninja duke it out…. in my game-room!

<This post features some atmospheric music suggestions found below each segment title viewing this post on the actual site is recommended for the full experience>

The Challenge

Of course the challenge will vary every installment of this. Combatants are allowed to use their abilities and we take into account how their mindset works. By placing them in a much more humble situation we do not need to do some math to find out that Luffy punches with the power of one octillion ton of tnt or having to go to weird science to show that Naruto’s beast bomb can blow up the moon.. which is more than Luffy can handle or something! No! These fights would cause planetary devastation and that’s not nice!  We would pick something you and I could compete in and feasibly win against them, why? Because that is how we make friends with them! Also I think it’s a bit more of an original idea than just analyzing their abilities or letting people vote who would win! This is more on brand for me.

Culling the competition!

So how do we place a flexible man and a duplicating man on equal level? Well it is very simple! We call in the help of Nintendo! In februari 1999 a game of theirs released that could test how flexible your hand was, how fast you could tab buttons and how strategical one can be! It forces people to work together..as well as against one another.  Today we will find out who of these two will be our Superstar. That is right! We are playing Mario Party. Now there are a lot of Mario Parties to choose from and the winner may depend on our choice. Obviously the ones with the car would bore both to death.. as those are proper mario party games. To keep things a bit simple.. I decided to go with the first game. This way there can always be a rematch, should there need be one!

The Set-Up

Luffy and Naruto would meet in an epic staredown, but smiling, both be handed their N64 controllers for the first time. Immediately we see a difference between our two contestants. Naruto like any normal human being has difficulty  holding this weird spaceship shaped controller, while Luffy wraps his hand around it with ease! The Rubber-Devil-Fruit Powers are coming in clutch already! Now since Naruto is Japanese he will hold the controller by the middle prong, tiny hands and all that, as the N64 controllers were designed that you could hold it depending on our hand size or what stuff you needed. Since the D-pad is barely needed in this game Naruto is not to disadvantaged but Luffy struggles less when needing to switch positions and has an advantage in minigames.

Now it’s onto selecting their characters, this doesn’t give them a advantage… or does it?  Luffy would as mentioned before have less trouble with the controller and would be able to select his character first. Choosing Yoshi.Why? Because I believe Luffy would get excited of having a dinosaur as a Nakama. Naruto who saw the frog like features of Yoshi would have most likely picked him as well but now decides to choose Peach. A choice which will come into play later.  Donkey Kong and Wario would be selected as the computer controlled opponents, as both tend to fight villains and these two are the closest to that..even if they are thinking of the wrong Donkey Kong. 

Now for a board they will select DK’s Jungle Adventure. Luffy would be to distracted by the cake .. in Princess Peach level and Luffy would not want to give Luffy the advantage of duking it out on a tropical island, as a pirate, islands like that would be Luffy’s favored terrain. They would consider the Wario Stage for a bit but both have had their fair share of war and are not to keen on reliving it.  Which brings me to what versions of both characters we use. We use both their “young adult” post time skip forms with most of their abilities intact. However transformation states are not allowed. So no foxfire Naruto and no Geared up Luffy. 

The First Half

Immediately after the turn order is decided,  Luffy tries to activate his conquers Haki to knock Naruto out or gage his inner strength, which obviously would not knock out Naruto but would knock out just about everyone else on the island… maybe if Irina is visiting she would have already been knocked out by the cocktails beforehand. This action does come back to bite Luffy in the posterior though. Now that there is no one to tell them how to play the actual game.

Naruto is much more likely to pick up video games more natural than Luffy. His world is a lot more contemporary than Luffies. Just less for ninja’s .. however there are computers and technology in his world. Additionally Naruto is less obsessed with his goal. While in his free time Luffy would eat, train or think of what new Nakama he wants to at, Naruto would actually spend his free time more “normally” making it much more likely he can slip into the right mindset. As a result in the first five rounds of mini games or so, Naruto would most likely come out on top, though perhaps still losing to the A.I. ..at least in the first two games.

In the second quarter of the game however we will see a much more balanced and equal game.  Luffy would use his gum gum arms to completely dominate the stick spin minigames, (these are mini games where you rapidly spin your analog stick around to win a minigame) and Naruto would use his shadow clones to win the rapid button presses minigames, however since Luffy is cute used to his Gum Gum Gatling Gun.. he develops a finger technique based on it called the Gum Gum Mini gun as he gains ground on Naruto. Having two clones aid with button presses is less effective than a flurry of rubbery fingers, so it looks like the most minigame award would go to Luffy. 

There is a reason that Naruto chose Peach. He readies his ultimate distraction technique as he asks Luffy. “Can you see my character”  he uses his Sexy-No-Jutsu to transform into a bikini Peach. This distraction would work, for about two minigames. Not because Luffy got a nosebleed.. but because he is super excited that he now might be able to add a Genderfluid-Ninja Nakama to his team and become Pirate King for sure.  Naruto would tease Luffy for long enough to win a couple of games and take some momentum back.

Luffy gets excited about a cool trick he sees!

The Second Half

In the second half of the game Luffy would recover, Sanji would somehow burst in and begin to swoon over Naruto causing him to turn back and yell at the chef. Where he came from nobody knows.. but when there is a half naked girl he just would show up. Luffy is gaining more and more advantages in minigames.  In games like Bumper Balls, where you try to bounce each other of a small island using big rubber balls for example would be akin to physics Luffy is very familiar with, there are a few similar games like swimming around a rubber hammer and other things. 

However in the water based games Luffy is a bit overly careful and ends up losing more than once.  For some reason in the bonus game you can dive up treasures he manages to get his character down under water.. but he can’t get it back up, not because he really can’t but because he believes he can’t .  As a result Luffy is not very good at the bonus games that allow you to earn more than 10 coins.. as a large part of them include water. Around turn 15, Luffy has won about 8 minigames, Naruto won 5 and the NPC’s have won two. However since Naruto wins the bonus games.. he would most likely still have the most coins…it doesn’t really help that Luffy likes to land on red spaces as that is is defining colour.

Team games are alway won by Luffy.. if Naruto is in his team or not.. he is very good at working with other people, while Naruto technically should he is much more a I need to do this guy. Something that really developed more after his time skip. Luffy is having more fun than Naruto, he lands on more question mark spaces and would luck out more having three stars where Naruto only has one. He is enjoying himself so much he loses sight of the tactical aspect of the match, as Luffy is prone to be distracted. 

This will end up costing him dearly in the final five turns, coins are ample except with Luffy who keeps spending them. Still seeing Naruto as a potential Nakama he shows him kindness and doesn’t steal from him using Boo. The Water 7 arc shows how easy to forgive Luffy can be and in general he really treats his friends well. Now Naruto  is not a bad person but he had Sakura tell she had feelings for him even if she did not and his best friend betrayed the village.He also wants to knock sense into said friend…destroy his goals and motivations and drag him back to the village. He also has more drive to win. Naruto has been in way more petty competitions than the stretchy pirate and he wants to win them all, while Luffy is more prone to see non essential competitions as “fun”

This will result in Naruto tactically allowing an NPC to steal a star first, as Luffy has the most he would always be the target of the NPC.Naruto holds off until this has happened to snipe a star of Luffy as well, planning it out as close to the final turn as possible, just to end up using his coin lead to buy himself an additional star as well. Luffy who is just having fun would tactically not be prepared for this being considerably less intelligent compared to Naruto. While both are tactically about equal in combat, Naruto’s time with Shikamaru makes him much more likely to pick up some of the strategic skills needed here. He has also displayed them more in finding enemy bases and plans where Luffy usually shouts enemies out of hiding or creates other ruckus.

The betrayal would anger Luffy and cause him to go all out in the last phase. Activating his armament Haki for more rigid button presses and even faster spinning. Most of the future pirate king’s  big fights end with an enraged Luffy giving it his all. This can result in either two things of which the latter is more likely to me! Luffy completely dominates the last two minigames crushing all former records OR he accidentally breaks the analogue stick or buttons during a flurry of matches and in actuality losing the last two matches due to controller failure. Since normal people already break N64 controllers when Mario Partying to zealously, this would be the scenario I’d think would unfold with angry Luffy as well.

The Super Star

Now that the match is over it is time for the bonus stars.  First of is the minigame star, a bonus star that has been present since game one. This would be very close since Luffy won more mini games but really struggled with bonus games..because his fear of water. Naruto would have won less but he is more money aware than Luffy and would have  bested him in the bonus mini games, partially due to more natural gamer instincts part due to a lack of fear. Wether or not the controller broke for Luffy during the end phase will decide whoever wins this bonus star. Which in fairness would be more likely to be Luffy so we will give this star to him.

The Happening Star is a bonus star that would be awarded to those who landed on the most green event spaces. This would definitely go to Luffy, he is much more prone to experiment on a games board and just see what happens if he goes on that square. Naruto oftenly being short on cash would prioritise blue spaces and getting cash..because he also is put on the backhand of minigames.


The Coin Star would be close again but I feel like this would end up going to Naruto, even though he spend more money than Luffy. Here is my “math” for that.  During an average math on DK Jungle you can buy about 5 ish stars. Due to him dominating in the Minigames I gave Luffy 3 and Naruto 2. However Naruto spend 50 coins to steal a star of Luffy as well. So Naruto spends 90 coins and Luffy 60. From minigames Luffy wins somewhere close to the 150 mark the Ninja boy not being that far behind due to the bonus minigames paying out a lot more. However where Luffy would explore a board and see what stuff does, plus he likes his icon being red I feel on the board Naruto would easily make double of what Luffy makes.  Easily compensating for the 30 coins he spend more. Luffy would want to try out a bowser square just to see what it would do and from that alone losing that amount of coins is fairly easy. The fact that Bowser is on this board and sells you fake golden banana figures for 10 coins is something I feel Luffy would also fall for more than once thus Naruto ends up with the most coins.

Now depending on how RNG went four likely scenarios can unfold.

Naruto did not manage to buy a second star after stealing Luffies, because he needs to time it close to the end if the game, in which both players would end up with three stars.
The NPC blundered and did not steal a star, in which case both the heroes would end up with four stars.
Naruto’s strategy worked completely, in which case he would end up on 4 stars and Luffy on Three.
The NPC would fail to steal a star, and Naruto would have bad rolls on the final dice and not make it to his third star. In which case Naruto would end up with 3 stars and Luffy would take 4.
Now it would seem that we have two ties and and one victory for both, but in Mario Party in case of a tie the victory goes to he who holds the most coins. So in most of our simulations ..victory would go to the blond boy! Naruto is the super star!

Now I hope you all enjoyed this first edition of Who Would Win! How do you think should win?! What type of match up would you like to see you next? I had a blast making this post so there will be a lot more of these!
I shall all wish you an amazing day and will leave you with the teaser for the next one.
