[FINISHED]An Insectile Endeavor: A Pokemon Moon Buglocke Written Log; Part 12: The Twelfth Labor

reset myself and get back on track

Hello and salutations to my fellow forumites! Posted ImageShiny DustoxPosted Image here with another run and surprise, surprise, it's another Buglocke! I know, I didn't see it coming either! I mean... I guess I did. My hype for Sun and Moon was off the charts, so much so that I bought three copies of the game (2 Moon, 1 Sun) because I knew I was going to do a Nuzlocke run of it eventually. And well, who would I be if the first thing that I thought of wasn't a Buglocke?

Now, as the title and the banner indicate, this is a written log run. I'm hoping that this is a great way for helping me stretch my writing muscles, breakaway from my comfort blanket of screenshot runs, and be a good productive distraction from my main run. Priority is less on this, of course, so please expect sporadic updates.

Credit goes to Argon for inspiring me to do this as a written log run as well. His runs are a hoot and three quarters to read, and I promise you'll change your mind about written log runs when you check them out. If you haven't, please check out his current one that he is doing with Master Bryss, another luminary of this community. In the same vein, I will do my darndest to make sure this is entertaining as hell to read.

Anyway, I blathered on long enough. Let's get this ship sailing, shall we?

Ayyyy, a new Dusty run! And a written log to boot! u kno ur gonna regret this right

Yeah the SuMo intro is definitely super cool. I like that Kukui doesn't ask "are you a boy or a girl," just "which photo should I use for your passport." That's nice.

Pascal deserves a vacay in Alola tbh but Alania is cute too~

Looking forward to the next update! Good luck with the Trainer School!!!

Oh man, I'm really excited for this! Alola is really well-suited to a bug monolocke, given how many great new lines it introduced. I'm bad enough at normal Nuzlocking though, so I'm looking forward to living vicariously through the logs of a bug-type master. ^^

Alania is such a pretty name, and the Dewpider line is A++ so I think you made a solid choice there! She'll serve you well. ;w;

I've admittedly not followed too many written logs, but it's awesome to see you branching out into another medium and I think you'll do great! I'm just happy I get to follow along from the beginning. c: Good luck!

also holy shit that banner is amazinggg I love it!!

Our resident Bug expert is doing another run?! Hate to echo everyone but yay!

I'm still miffed I didn't get to even meet any Dewpiders during my Moon run, they seem so fun to use (and that type combo!)
Since I rotate my avatars and don't want to remake my sig a billion times, have a collective list of sources in order.

Woohoo! I am glad to finally see this get off the ground! I know you have been excited about it for a long time. Hopefully everything pans out well and you don't end up with a whole bunch of ledyba... But if you do, hey! Enjoy the buggy buds, I guess! It would be refreshing to see a ledyba last for awhile.

Aww, no puns? But I love puns... (They're the highest form of humor and anyone who disagrees can eat old cheese!)

And I can't wait for more! I haven't gotten far in Moon (I blame the addictiveness of ORAS), but I'mma read this anyway!

And here marks the exact point that the written log went fully mainstream. :v

I kinda wanted to use Dewpider myself but decided against it, so I'm glad it's getting love here. Especially since it doesn't usually stay Dewpider for very long. I'm sure you're gonna have fun with this!

Ah, geez, man... that's a hell of an endorsement, and thank you. I'd start tearing up if I actually had any tear ducts. Instead I'll just link Master Bryss' run (since ours is a rivallocke) to make sure everything balances out.

Anyway, this ought to be interesting! The Bug-type got a huge buff in Gen VII, and what better way to highlight all of the wonderful, wonderful new toys it got than a written log from our resident Bug-type monolocke expert? I just know this is going to be a treat. Plus I love how the title is a reference to the name of the ship commanded by Captain James Cook on his first voyage

I was kind of always under the impression Cliff would rest when he was dead, so... thanks for spoiling the end of ABitS for us, I guess?

Eh, it was easy to guess, but I think it makes for a nice bit of dramatic tension. Like, we know they're evil, but their words and actions don't seem it during your initial encounters with them in the gameplay (especially since your favorite Kahuna Olivia seems to be on good terms with them), and then Ragyo Kiryusamine steps onto the screen and everything falls into place, y'know?

OH YES DEWPIDER STARTER THIS IS GOING TO BE SUH-WEET. Also I hope the person you consulted regarding Aurora Beam was actually responsible in how they evaluated how BalancedTM it would be and didn't just agree to it because they thought it would be funny to give you an early-game nuke.

Looking forward to the next update!

Look at this amazing banner Master Bryss made for our rivallocke! His run is on the right, mine is on the left.
