[COMPLETED] Manic's Derpy Emerald; Epilogue - Life Moves On

There is much to do.
And now it is time for me to do the Nuzzing of the Locke for the Emerald! I'm still kinda new at this, so bear with me. Still, I've already figured out what rules I'm going to use for this run.


1. Catch only the first wild pokemon from a route. If it dies or runs, tough titties.
-- 1a. Dupe clause set to 'optional'. May choose to catch first pokemon if it is a dupe. If not, retry until a new pokemon is found.
-- 1b. This rule does not apply until I get my first pokeballs.
-- 1c. I may catch any shinies I find, but if they're not the first 'mon on a route, I can't use them.
2. Nickname everybody. Pokemon are people too!
3. Whenever a pokemon faints, it is THE DEAD. Send it to heaven!
4. PERSISTENT STARTER - You may not remove your starter from your active team.
5. STARTER DEATH - If your starter faints, the run is over.
6. Gifts, trades, etc. all count as the pokemon for their respective area.


And now, without further delay...




Posted Image

I was waiting? For what?



Posted Image

So if you have a boy, he's a son of a Birch? :xd:



Posted Image

FALSE. I've never called you that, and I am a subset of 'everyone'!



Posted Image

You mean, sending your relatively defenseless daughter out into the field by herself to be attacked by wild animals pokemon? YOU BRAVE BRAVE MAN.



Posted Image

...dude, seriously. Glasses. C'mon. You can't look any worse than you do now, and you'll be able to see better!



Posted Image

Yep, that's me. Your new best friend disciple.



Posted Image

I'M PRETTY SURE I JUST SAID THAT. DOES THIS HELP YOU HEAR?



Posted Image

My unfettered glee knows no bounds.



Posted Image

Swell. What's it pay? ...nothing, right? I bet it's nothing. It's nothing, isn't it?



Posted Image

>> Report to work



Posted Image

I AM LUGGAGE MOVE ALONG NOTHING TO SEE HERE



Posted Image

Your keen grasp of the obvious never fails to amaze me, mom.



Posted Image

In all its three-building glory. Yaaaaay.



Posted Image

Woman, if you hadn't needed to escape from your pimp, we wouldn't be in this mess!



Posted Image

Yes, let's. The neighbors - both of them - are beginning to stare. And the rest of the people in this town...where do they live?

You know what? Nevermind. I think I'm better off not knowing.



Posted Image

Yeah! That...sure is a kitchen, all right. You really spared no expense on these luxuries. Wait a minute, where do YOU slee...oh, right. Planning to stick with your career, huh?



Posted Image

Leaving me to clean up all the poke-poop. Must...undertake...adventure...!



Posted Image

Yes. Leaving you alone with these two unsupervised pokemon sounds like an excellent idea. Please try not to die, you're the one paying rent.



Posted Image

What a fantastic substitute for parental love!



Posted Image

Let's see here. Tiny bed, monitor with no noticeable computer, ancient television with purple lunchbox hooked up to it, book I've read seven hundred times, clock...yep! What more could a young man need to rot his mind into a drooling mess?



Posted Image

Didn't even include batteries. Thanks, Dad.



Posted Image

Believe it or not, yes, this IS the correct time. This is how I roll.



Posted Image

I'm about to start hurting you. I don't know when I'm going to stop.



Posted Image

Yeah, isn't slave labor great? I wonder where their trainers are? Probably waiting at the office for their first 'payment'. Bring a towel.



Posted Image

Ohhhh, NOW I get it! If the pokemon decide to steal anything, the trainers can claim ignorance. Right. I just...you know what, just leave. I'm going to make sure they didn't eat any of the pages from my book.



Posted Image

The book is fine. I am withdrawing a potion from my computer. FUUUUUUUCK LOOOOGIIIIIIC



Posted Image

I bet you say that to all the guys.



Posted Image

Awesome, maybe he'll be on the receiving end of a savage beating that will end his career and leave him a broken shell of a man! This WAS worth leaving my cell!



Posted Image

Or, y'know, not.



Posted Image

Screw this noise, I'mma go see Professor Birch and find out why he was IN MY HEAD on the drive over.



Posted Image

Yyyyup. Try to ignore any smells, sounds, sights, tastes...y'know, just try to pretend we're not here. I apologize in advance.



Posted Image

...daughter, you say. About my age, maybe? Pleasedon'tbeacreeper, pleasedon'tbeacreeper...



Posted Image

I'm Manic! I'm your next door neighbor. I'm so sorry.



Posted Image

May, huh? Will I get to meet your friends April, June, and Julie? Ha ha ha...

...awkward panda.



Posted Image

Wait, what? He doesn't even know me, what could he possibly tell you about...oh. Right. He knows my Dad. Because my Dad knows me SO well...



Posted Image

Thankfully, there's absolutely no chance that we'll be forced by circumstance to engage in an array of deadly battles that render us bitter rivals with no chance of reconciliation!

...

...

...what?



Posted Image

Ahhh, so you're his slave assistant, then! That's...that's great. So he's not around much? Hmmm. This does open up some possibilities...



Posted Image

THESE WERE NOT THE POSSIBILITIES I HAD IN MIND.



Posted Image

A pokeball? One singular pokeball? And it's not with you because...?



Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

'A pokeball', right? Little bastard, holding out on me. Okay, um. Let's see. I think I'll choose...




So, there's the first part of my adventure! The question is, which one should I choose? I'm going to leave it up to you, the viewing audience, to decide who my starter is! Go ahead and post your thoughts, and when I check back in a day or two, whichever one has the most votes will get chosen! Hell, just name it too, while you're at it.

Get the Mudkip because Mudkip starter = easy-modo Mauville gym. Name it Gustav even though it's not a Totodile.

Aw man, I thought this was a Derp Emerald run. Those are always pretty interesting.

Might as well hop on the bandwagon and say Mudkip.

Okay! By an absolute landslide, Gustav the Mudkip is the winnard! So, let's see what happens, shall we?




Posted Image

Sure, this one seems okay.



Posted Image

Here, go save your boss from a ferret with a bad perm.



Posted Image

It's cool, it's a level 2 Zigzagoon. You can take this thing by sneezing at it.
Gracias. Me llamo Gustav.
Wait, what? You can talk? And in SPANISH?
Si. But I will speak English for you, Señor.
Okay, that works. So, go pummel that walking hairdon't.



(one savage beating later)



Posted Image

Seriously? One good kick would've solved this problem without me having to get involved. What was it doing, nibbling on your shin?



Posted Image

YeahyouwereinlethaldangerPAYMENTNOWPLZ.



Posted Image

Gggggh...WHAT? Did we just restart this conversation? Are you...are you a Timelord?
Worst timelord ever.



Posted Image

I'd better get some serious reward money for helping you, Captain Crazypants.
Don't go, Señor. You will regret it.
No way, man. I want what's coming to me.
You asked for it. Literally.



Posted Image

Really? Did he also tell you all about nuclear fusion, the meaning of life, and who wrote the book of love? Because he's exactly as knowledgeable about those subjects.
Don't be sad. At least you have one parent left. This pendejo only got me because both of my parents were snatched up by wild Mightyena.
Ouch. So noted.



Posted Image

Well, in a jar in my basement, actually. WAIT WHAT YOU HEARD NOTHING



Posted Image

Good, because I was going to keep him anyway. He's the first person I've known who wasn't an absolute tool.
Good, because I was going to go with him anyway. He's the first person I've known who wasn't an absolute tool.
...you know, this might just work out.
Si.



Posted Image

Nah, it's cool. His name is Gustav.



Posted Image

Oh, right, the slave labor we discussed earlier while you were IN MY HEAD. I've been meaning to ask you about that...
You are better off not knowing.



Posted Image

Sure, sounds like fun. Maybe she and I can get better acquainted.



Posted Image

Should be? Birch, please. When I'm done, she's never gonna come home.
Your choice of words, it is...horrible.



Posted Image

Slick! Free sample.
ME GUSTA.



Posted Image

You sound like my mom. :rofl:
Your mother, she is...?
A whore. And my father is the leader of the Normal-type gym here in Hoenn. I haven't seen him in years.
I have no parents, and I want them. You have parents, and do not want them. What a pair.



Posted Image

Damn, she's a regular Bulbapedia. It's okay, nerd chicks are hot.
Bulbapedia?
Yeah, it's a book my dad got me. Lots of info about Pokemon. It's the only book I own, so I've read it about twelve billion times.
ONE book?
One book.



Posted Image

More like, I chose Gustav to help save his life. And he did. Beatdown was administered.
It was so easy, it was hardly work at all.



Posted Image

...Gustav, help me out here. Is she hitting on me?
You are a very lonely man, no?



Posted Image

Hola.
Bonjour.
I apologize for what is about to happen.
Qu'est-ce que c'est? What are you...



Posted Image

...ow...



Posted Image

My career in la politica begins.
You know...you're kinda weird, Gustav. But I can dig it.



Posted Image

Oh. That explains...ewwww. That explains far, far more than I ever wanted to know about your father. :nervous:



Posted Image

What, seriously?
Es verdad. A human that does not make me want to vomit...this is rare.
That's cool. I like you too, man. Question, though: She doesn't seem to understand you. What's up with that?
See previous comment.



Posted Image

It wasn't exactly much of a challenge.
You did not have to fight.



Posted Image

Wait, what? She has 'extensive experience' but has one pokemon at level 5 and that's all?
Compared to him, she is league champion.
Oh, I get it. She fights and explores and such, and he...
...takes the credit. Si.



Posted Image

Wait. Did I just get recruited as another sucker?



Posted Image

Eager to share the burden, huh?
She has been doing this her whole life. You would be eager too.
Okay, okay. Fair enough.



Posted Image

Woman, get back in the house and put some clothes on!
Dios mio...



Posted Image

Despite her approval, I maintain that this is a good partnership.
Señor...I think I have been poisoned. I feel sick.



Posted Image

...you got me something? Actually purchased a thing for me beyond what was needed for me to live?



Posted Image

Let me guess. Place right foot in front of left foot. Place left foot in front of right foot. Repeat as necessary.
*snrk*



Posted Image

*looks at Gustav*
*looks at Manic*

(together) BWAAAaahaahahahahahaha*wheeze* haahahaahaHAAHAHAHAHAhaahahaa *gasp* No. No.




Y'know, I have an idea. I don't want this shitty job for no pay, and you want to get back at the Mightyena that offed your folks, right?
Si?
So, how does this sound? Let's take the league challenge. If we become champions, I'll gain enough power to end my dad's career, and you'll get strong enough to pummel the Mightyena (and maybe Birch) into paste.
This sounds like a very good plan, but Birch will still take the credit.
See, that's the great part. I'm only going to catch the FIRST pokemon I find on each route. That should give us enough power to take on the League, but the pokedex I return to Birch will be patchwork at best. He'll get discredited!
That...that is beautiful. We are doing that.
Sweet. Let's roll!





Posted Image

Hey, cool. A new friend! Be gentle, Gustav.
That is my nature, Manic. But...a Poochyena? Must we?
C'mon, man. We need a bigger team. Be a bro, do this for me.
*sigh* Very well. Come with us, hermana.
Fine. I'm Audrey.



Posted Image

Audrey, you're hurt. C'mon back.
I've got this.
No, you don't. One good crit and you're dead. Come back.
I said, I've got this.



Posted Image

Wha...
'I've got this' is usually code for 'I'm about to die'. Not on my watch.



Posted Image

Bleah.



Posted Image

Okay! Time for another new friend.
Fine.
Gustav, bro, help me out here. Did I manage to do something wrong? I think Audrey might kinda hate me.
No, hermano. I think she is simply Quiet.
Whatever, man. Call me Perry, I guess.



*grindan 4 Perry and Audrey*



Posted Image

Does this help?
To be honest? Not all that much. It's great if you can hit with it, but...
It's cool, whatever.



Posted Image

And here's where we left off. Level 8 team ready to hit Route 102. No Ziggies yet (aww), but I'll have more chances.

Okay, moving on. We're all pretty well-prepared for the other trainers we're sure to find.
Speak for yourself.
It'll be fine, don't worry. I think we may have actually overleveled a bit. Let's go meet our new friend, that'll cheer you up.



Posted Image

Hey there, folks! You're a wonderful audience. Say, why did the Torchic cross the road?
Ha ha, awesome, man. I dunno. Why?
Because somebody stapled it to a trainer! *ba-dum tssh*
Dude. Bro. Manic. This guy's gotta come with us. Comedy GOLD, man.
Okay, um...sure. Confuse it.
More than it already is?
Just do it.



Posted Image

Blrgh...hey, you're a waitress, tip the audience! Why did the Moltres like a writing desk? Because there a young man from Nantucket!
Oh dear lord, it's true: fainting is easy, comedy is hard. Here, gotcha. click
Swell, a trainer. Just go ahead and name me 'Penis' because I'm gonna learn Harden. A thousand laughs, kid. I know the tradition.



Posted Image

Wait, seriously?
Señor Manic, he is not the usual trainer.
Chill out, man...we're not gonna buzzkill you.
Hi.
Yeah, what they said. I mean, you're gonna fly eventually, right? So, why not call you Ace?
You and me, we're goin' places, kiddo!



Posted Image

Mmmph gmmph! Mmmf hmmmf gmm mmmnf!
Great. Now how am I going to level you...hmmm. You still know Tackle. Hey, Ace...
Mmmf?
Ever play Dodgeball?
MMMMMF!!!



Posted Image

Oh, thank god. Now I'll finally be a badass Dustox! Chicks go for Dustoxes. Dustoxen?



Posted Image

FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU
I think you may be prettier than me!
I didn't know you were a chick, dude.
It's all right. You're still a badass, Ace. And now you can fight on your own AND you know the team's only Grass-type move.
Pokeball. NOW.
Right.



Posted Image

Petalburg, huh? I think this is...wait. Wait wait wait. Shit. NO. Passing through.
We need healing at the very least, amigo.
What's his problem?
Señor Manic, he has...father issues.
That's putting it mildly. I haven't seen him in so many years, I bet he doesn't even recognize me.



Posted Image

Not in a good mood right now, pal. You really want to know what I'm thinking?
Be cool, man, be cool.
Manic, we should go, yes?



Posted Image

No bueno.
Hey, he wanted my thoughts. I gave them to him. He should be happy.
Is the kid always like this? Sheesh, rage-a-holic.
No. He is not happy about his familia. When we leave, he will be happier.
Soon, I hope.



Posted Image

Take in the sights and learn their way around? Get their pokemon healed? Resupply on Antidotes and potions and stuff?



Posted Image

Fortunately, I already know entirely too much about this gym, so I can just bypass the...



Posted Image

...tour. DAMN it.



Posted Image

Manic? We are going to explore while you deal with this.
Family business, kid, and we ain't family. We don't even look alike!
Yeah, well...okay. You're the closest I ever had...
Take it easy, bro.
I'll stay.
...thanks, Audrey.



Posted Image

Well, I'll be damned. You DO recognize me. Yeah, we're done. It's not like I had a lot to move, you deadbeat.
Be nice, Manic. You know why I left you and your mother.
Yeah, because Pokemon are all you care about. I bet you're more interested in Audrey here than me.
Hello there, Audrey. Let's have a look at you, see how he's raising you...
*growl* Get any closer and I'll bite.
Okay, maybe later.



Posted Image

Yeah, you always did underestimate me. I suppose I should at least thank you for the Bulbapedia, I studied it for years trying to be less of a disappointment to you, before I finally just stopped giving a damn about what you thought.
Is that any way to talk to your Father? No. But you aren't really much of a father.



Posted Image

Hey, buddy. Bad timing. We're kinda in the middle of a 'thing' here.
Wally, maybe you should come back...later...OR, maybe I can solve two problems at the same time.



Posted Image

Oh no. Oh, hell no. You did NOT just order me to do something.
He looks lonely.
What? Are you talking about Wally, or my dad?
Both.
...
Come on, Wally.



Posted Image

Wow, your dad is Norman? THE Norman? You must be really proud of him!
I don't know him, and he doesn't know me. He took off when I was little.
Oh...I'm sorry...Manic, right? Maybe that's why he stays in the gym by himself.
Just keep walking.



Posted Image

I did it! I did it, I caught a pokemon! Now I won't have to be scared anymore!
Wait, scared? Of what?
Well, I've always been scrawny and sick, and some of the other kids...pick on me. A lot. But maybe not anymore!
Heh...yeah, Pokemon have kinda pulled me out of a slump too. A slump called my life...
Poor child.
You'd better be talking about Wally, Audrey.



Posted Image

So, mom actually buys me something beyond the necessities, and you're helpful. Clearly, I have fallen into some parallel universe where OW! Audrey, what's with biting my hand?
Thank him and let's go.
Rrrgh...if nothing else, I need to get this bite treated. Well...thanks.
It was a nip. Stop whining.



Posted Image

Ahhh, THERE you are.
Si, Petalburg is lovely at this time of year.
You get things worked out with your old man, kid?
...something like that.
We cool?
*wingbump* We're cool. C'mon, let's see what Route 104 looks like.



Posted Image

Well, yeah. Kind of a novice, really, but I...



Posted Image

Excuse me? Perhaps those shades are obscuring your view of my four friends?
Estupido.
Hey, pal. Where's your walking stick and cup of pencils?
C'mon, guys. Let's keep moving. Route 104 awaits, along with a new friend!



Posted Image

Hello, trainer.
Another water type? Sheesh. At least this one is smart enough to recognize me for what I am. Another pokemon smarter than humans.
Come, now. I'm Margaret. Have your Wingull use his Supersonic on me, let me swat myself a few times, and you can catch me and train me before you enter Petalburg Woods.
What...how did you know what I was going to do?!
Clarity of thought provides a great deal of insight. Shall we move on?
Sure...okay, kinda creeped out right now.

Posted ImagePosted Image

(Training montage)



Posted Image

Now, this is more like it! Lots of tasty grass.
No quiero...why did it have to be a forest?
I can hardly wait...once I find a new friend here, I'll have a full team of six! I'll be in really good shape to take Roxanne on, not that I'm not already with three water types.
I think you'll be very pleased with what you find here, Manic.
*yaaaaaaawn*



Posted Image

:glomp: Slakoth. YES. All of my yes! Do want!
Huh?
Margaret, hit her a few times. GENTLY, we don't want to knock her out.
Three times should suffice.
Sweet! Got her! Welcome to the team, uhm...
Oh, look. A trainer.


...um, yeah. How about you grab onto my shoulders and ride under my backpack?
Whoah. Now, that's chill. Hey there, what's your name?
Hello?
I think she's asleep, dude.
A team? *yawn* Sure, if I can get my beauty sleep. I'm Dana.



Posted Image

Wait. Who with the what now?
I smell trouble, kid. Watch it.
Ace is correct, something is wrong here.



Posted Image

Team who? Wait...Perry, Margaret, you two are acting like you know these guys.
Totally uncool, man. They like to rip folks off.
Take care, Manic. These are unscrupulous men who will stop at nothing.



Posted Image

*yaaaaawn* Not now. Let someone else do it...
GAH! No, not you, Dana! Okay, I need to switch you out for someone else. Ace, you're already ahead of the others, so maybe you should sit this one out.
Suits me fine, pal. But who's stepping up?



Posted Image

Good question...




Such a good question, in fact, that I'm going to let YOU decide? Who's stepping in for Dana? I'll tally any posts overnight and base my decision on your suggestions!

Thanks, chetoos! I'm glad someone is enjoying. With one vote for Perry and one for Gustav, I hereby decide with a coin flip! Heads is Gustav, tails is Perry.

Perry! This thing likes boosting its attack, right? Show it why that can be dangerous.
Okay, cool...what?
Just confuse it and let it smack itself around.
Cool if I soak it too?
Sure, go for it. Do your thing, man.
Easy like Sunday morning, bro.



Posted Image

Why would you even tell me that? What kind of crappy criminal organization are you?
I coulda done a better job when I was still in the cocoon!
I said they were unscrupulous. I never said they were intelligent.



Posted Image

Oh, um, okay. That sounds...great, I guess?
For such an easy fight? Perhaps we should do more of this, amigo.



Posted Image

Still route 104?
Jeez, looks like they split it in half. I can't catch anything here without breaking the rules.
Is that man a criminal?
Was. WAS that man a criminal.
*zzzzzz*
Augh. Forget it. Let's just snag some berries and get past those trainers.
Look, kid, I'm not trying to tell you your business or anything, except...yeah, come to think of it, I am. We're all kinda beat up. Don't push too hard, alright?



Posted Image

*snrt* Que? Manic? Where...why are we here?
We had a double battle coming up next, and you guys were in no shape for it, so I came back for healing. Everyone else is asleep.
I thought you hated this place. You came back...
...for you guys, yeah. Now, let's go teach those little girls who they're dealing with!
You are abominably tierno, Señor Manic.



Posted Image

Jeez Louise, kid! Are those...?
Leppa berries! My bro ate one and flew for a week. It was awesome.
These would be excellent to bring with us, Manic. Shall we pick them?
Sure, but we're not bringing them with us.
Aw, why not?



Posted Image

Because if I plant them instead, we can start making a steady supply of these things. We just need to remember to come back for them.
Demonstrating forethought is an excellent habit.

So here we are, Rustboro City and HOOOOLY crap!
Amigo, this place is enormous!
Yeah, this joint makes Petalburg look like the Improv on a Tuesday afternoon!
There's the Devon corporation, there's some kid giving out a free Premier ball - yoink! - and I heard something about an HM?



Posted Image

Well, it's about time somebody noticed.
We already knew, amigo.
Okay, let me rephrase that. It's about time another human noticed.



Posted Image

Absolutely! So, who wants to learn Cut? ...anybody?
Not it!
Not it.
Nah, I'm cool.
I would prefer not to.
Oh look, a town. *yaaaawn*
Amigo, learning Cut is like tying a piñata around your neck: it's just one big burden. Let's wait until we need to, si?
Yeah, okay. We don't exactly need it right away. Into my bag you go! C'mon, let's check out the school, I could use a few pointers!



Posted Image

:HOLYCRAP: What are you, high?! Seriously, are you on drugs RIGHT NOW?
Back away from him, Manic, nice and slow...
Screw that noise, I just watched him smack two kids with that thing!



Posted Image

GIVE me that!
:eek: Jeez, kid, gimme a heart attack, why don'tcha?
That was very brave.
Brave, nothing. You can have it back at the end of class, you nutjob. The class of 2027!



Posted Image

PFFFTTTTCHCH *falls over laughing* Not even if I HAD a Ralts, which I don't!
And I will forget Water Gun to learn Splash. Is everyone in this town loco?
I have heard that living in a very large city can create a level of social detachment, but this seems extreme.



Posted Image

Phew, finally out of the looney bin and on to a new route. Maybe we'll find a Nincada! I've always wanted one, they're such badasses when they evolve!



Posted Image

SWEET! Luck's going my way, aside from the screwballs! Perry, make it smack itself around so I can catch it!
Takes too long. I get bored. Here, watch this, man.



Posted Image

Arceus DAMMIT, Perry! That was supposed to be our new friend!
Chill, man. It just wasn't meant to be.
Look, Perry, pal...I'm not Margaret or anything, but I think you better hit the ball for a while.
Cool, whatever.
Gahhhh, I swear, I'm gonna force-feed him a Leppa berry smoothie! Let's just keep moving.



Posted Image

Hey, I heard about this. Seems simple enough. And we can find a friend to replace the Nincada we didn't catch.
Let it go, Manic.
...fine. Anyway, I know it'll be a Whismur, since that's all that lives in this cave.



Posted Image

Aww, poor Nincada...
I can't see my hand in front of my face!
Hey, who turned out the lights?!
That had better be your paw, Audrey.
Guess again.
*SMACK*
Si, si, no touching, I understand!
Let's just find our friend and get out of this place.



Posted Image

Hey there, buddy. What's your name?
...
You wanna come with us? This is Gustav, and Audrey, and Perry, and Ace, and Margaret, and Dana...
*nod*
So, um, yeah. I'm Manic, and you are...?
...
Um, okay, right. I'll just call you Amplitude. I hear you'll wind up in the PC, but don't worry, I'll come see you shortly.



Posted Image

No, I'd like to become a ballet dancer. What do YOU think?
I think you've got the figure for it! *ba-dum tssh*
How do you DO that?
Do what?
Just...ow. My head. Nevermind, I think my brain is trying to burrow its way out of my skull as a defense mechanism.



Posted Image

Thank you, Captain Obvious.



Posted Image

AUDREY!
That was... *pant pant* ...too close. May I see your Bulbapedia while you train Dana?
Wow. I think...I think that's the most you've ever said to me at one time. Sure, go ahead.



Posted Image

Manic, withdraw Amplitude and train him. Box me.
Huh? Okay, sure.



Posted Image

For how long?
Permanently.




Wait...WHAT?! No! I'm not doing that! You're my friend!
Manic, listen to me. I was nearly killed out there. The others are progressing much faster than me. According to your Bulbapedia, I will never catch up; even as a Mightyena, the best move I learn also damages me. There's a reason those Aqua imbeciles use Poochyena.
But...I can't...I can't travel without you! I can't lose you like that!
If you box me, you can come and see me any time you like, and we can walk and catch up. If not...some day soon, it won't be a close call.
You're...we...
You've touched my heart, Manic. And I've touched yours. Distance can't change that. Now go, the others are waiting.
I'll...I'll come back and talk to you often. I promise!
I know. Go.
F-fine. C'mon, Amplitude. Let's get you trained. I know the others will...




















Such a good boy.









And there you have it. I know my updates are usually longer, but I figured that the permaboxing of one of the original cast merited the closure of an update. It's true, too; several times now, Audrey has hung on by the finest of threads. Worse, thanks to Gamefreak not figuring out the Physical/Special split until Gen IV, she'd be of less and less use in battle until her inevitable death. Better to box her and bring Amplitude out for some training.

Next time, I take on Roxanne!

Sorry for missing Thursday morning's update! Stuff just happened, and kept happening. (On the upside, my Skyrim character now has 100 in all stats!)




Posted Image

Wow, that hardly took any time at all!
Sheesh, Amplitude's growing like a weed!
Ace is correct. Welcome to the team, hermano.
...



Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

(Epic Grind Time!)



Posted Image

So...you guys sure you wanna do this? Clearing out the regular trainers inside wasn't much of a thing, but if we beat Roxanne...that's pretty much it, we're committed to the path.
If we had any doubt, we would not be here.
Margaret's right, man. We gotcha.
I learned a new move! Let's celeb*zzzzz*
Dana should be the most beautiful Slakoth in the world, with that much beauty sleep. Anyway, I'm only going to need two of you for this particular fight.



Posted Image

Yes, I figured that much out from your positioning and the name sewn on your shirt.
What? I don't have my name sewn on my shirt...see?
No, you don't...but you checked, didn't you?
You creep, you tricked me! Now it's on!



Posted Image

I almost feel guilty for how easy this is going to be.
Margaret?



Posted ImagePosted Image

I did say 'almost'.
Nicely done. Take a breather, it's time to share the love.



Posted Image

Hola. Me llamo Gustav. This is going to hurt you a lot more than it will hurt me.



Posted Image

Please, as much as you like.
Huh?
Get 'em, Gustav! You know what to do.



Posted Image

Oh.
It is child's play, amigo. They stand no chance.



Posted Image

Hah! Now you can't switch out!
What makes you think I was planning to switch out? Have you been watching this fight?
Rrrrgh...show them who they're messing with, Nosepass!



Posted Image

What? You don't even know your Nosepass' name, and you call yourself a gym leader?
Some trainers are very inconsiderate. This must be so embarassing for you...let me end this.



Posted Image

Two potions, an Oran berry...none of this can save you from me.
And that's all she wrote!



Posted Image

I could've told you that. How do I, of all people, know more than a gym leader?
The greatest education in the world is of no greater use than a bicycle to a Magikarp if the student will not listen, Manic.
Hubbawha?
What? What's your Marill telling you?
Her name is Margaret. And...I have NO idea.
She means that you only learn if you listen. Es verdad.
I wish she'd just say so, then!



Posted Image

Sweeeeet. One eighth of the way there!
Not even! The others are WAY stronger than me, and they'll squash you flat!
Keep dreaming. And keep watching the news if you want to see us!
He is becoming quite confident.
Si, it does my heart good to see it.
As long as confidence does not become overconfidence.



Posted Image

Hey, how'd it go?
Check this baby out.
Whoah...cool. Sparkly.
Good luck with the gym!
Y...yeah! Um. Anyway. Let's figure out where we go from...



Posted Image

What, AGAIN?
...
My sentiments exactly. That guy needs a leash!



Posted Image

*siiiiiigh* Do I really want to do this?
I don't know. Do you?
Mmmmf. I...well...yeah. I guess. I mean, I can't just leave him hanging.




Posted Image

Yeah, I figured that out. And I'm guessing you need me to help you.
Again.
Please, I just need to get the goods back! If I lose them for the eighteenth time this week, I'll be fired for sure!
Fine. But if you lose them again after this, you're on your own! Why is it that every adult I meet is irresponsible and dim-witted?
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king?
I'm...huh. You know, I'm just going to take that as a compliment. C'mon, let's go.



Posted Image

HOLYCRAP what the HELL, man?! :eek:
That thug ran into the cave! He stole mah Peeko! PEEEEEKOOOOO
Okay, okay! You don't have to yell! I need to pummel him anyway, I'll get your Peeko back.
My girl...Peeko...what would I do without you?
Okay, guys. Huddle up. That thug took this guy's granddaughter hostage. Things are going to get hairy in there. Amplitude, I want you to use Uproar to disorient him and take down any pokemon he has. Margaret, Gustav, you two use Water Gun to keep him down. Ace, Perry, you two help get his daughter to safety. Dana, just...hang on to me.
That...that sounds suspiciously like a plan, amigo.
Yeah, where'd that come from?
I...don't know. Margaret, what do you think?
I think you're finally starting to realize what you're capable of, Manic. Shall we go?
Yeah, okay. Amplitude, stop hugging his leg. What's with that?



Posted Image

Yeah, whatever. Okay, he's got a Wingull.
Hey, bro.
I don't see the kid anywhere...Perry, help Margaret and Gustav. Ace, look for her. Let's go!



Posted Image

Dana?! What on earth...well, uhm...okay then!
Phew, that was hard work. Nap time...
Anyone who's surprised has not been paying attention.



Posted Image

Fine, take the stupid stuff!
That's one thing I need. Where's the old guy's granddaughter?
:notsure: What? What are you talking about?
Ace, if he doesn't fork over the old guy's granddaughter by the time I count to three, drain his life force. One...
AIIIIGH! NO!
...or maybe he'll just run away instead. Ugh. I wonder why he called this a tunnel to nowhere, though.



Posted Image

Uncool.
FFFFFFFUUUUUU...great. Now what do we do?
Chill, man. Here comes the old dude.
PEEKO! You found my Peeko! Ohhh, Peeko, come to daddy!
Wait, what?!
Peeko was...
The Wingull, yes.
How long did you know about this?
Right after his shout.
Why didn't you tell me?!
You were doing so well, I didn't have the heart.
Stop by my shack so we can thank you properly! Bye!
...
I'm with Amplitude on this one.



Posted Image

Yeah. Let's...never speak of this again.



Posted Image

Not even slightly surprised anymore. How many of these things do you have? For that matter, if you're not a trainer, why do you have them?
I'm a Devon employee! We make them. And I've gotten used to carrying some around to reward people who help me...



Posted Image

Wait, you brought me here to talk to the PRESIDENT of Devon Corp.?! I need a shower and a change of clothes and a comb and...
You'll be fine! What's the worst that could happen?
I think this is his motto.



Posted Image

You know, having the president of Devon Corp. owe me a favor would be pretty nice...
And you won't go unrewarded!
Make sure it's not just another Great Ball!
I know, I know. It's not just another Great Ball, is it?
No, no. It can't get out that we're treating our volunteers like that! And since I know my subordinate short-changed you, here you go!
Huh. A poke...nav? That's new.
Brand new! You'll help us beta test it, and you get it for free!
Most useful, amigo! We will never be lost again.



Posted Image

Yeah, but we still don't know which way to go! North is just ledges, east is blocked off, west is water, and south is the way we came!
Mr. Briney will have a solution, and a boat.
Ohhhh. And that's the favor we'll ask for, right?



Posted Image

PFFFFTCHCHCH
Easy, amigo. She does not know.
Oh, it's swell. I've got...several pokemon documented already! Of course, once they evolve, I...



Posted Image

Hey, May. Knock knock.
Who's there?
Interrupting cow.
Interrupting cMoo. But yeah, let's do this.



Posted Image

Heyyy! Treecko, right? Gustav told me all about you, buddy. Since it's joke time, what did the Treecko say to the Beautifly?
Je ne sais pas. What did the Treecko say to the Beautifly?



Posted Image

Mon dieu, it hurts...
That's right! You've been a lovely audience, tip your trainer, goodnight!



Posted Image

Buh...I...why are you chasing Peeko around the table?!
Just for fun! She loves it when I do that. What a grown man and his pokemon do in the privacy of their cabin is their own business!
Manic, when we are on that boat, you do not lose sight of me. Not for one moment. Do you hear?
I think I'm gonna be sick.
...!
I'm gonna chill on top of the sail. Y'know. Outta reach.
Okay. Yes. We need a boat to get to Dewford, and we appreciate it. I wonder if Peeko got kidnapped on purpose... Ace, you need a bag or something?
Oh look, a Treecko.
I hope we do not regret this.




Next update will probably be sometime Friday evening, so stay tuned!

Heh. She's not dumb, she's just asleep a lot. When she wakes up, she reacts to the last thing she remembers...which is almost never the most recent event. (Besides, she doesn't have a Kevin, and Margaret is too optimistic to be a good Daria.)

See above. :laughing: And yeah, between Perry's Wing Attack and 1/2 damage from Fighting, and Ace's Gust and 1/4 damage from Fighting, it's mostly just a matter of putting in the necessary grind time at this point.


And now it's time for the next episode of Manic's Derpy Emerald, in which THINGS HAPPEN!




Posted Image

It's kind of cramped, sure, but your Pokemon can huddle close!
Absolutely not.
Yay, Petalburg Woods!
Yeeeeeah. That's not gonna happen. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever.
Oh, that's all right, then. Peeko will keep me company!
*shudder*



Posted Image

What is it, Amplitude? What's wrong?
... :sick:
Ohhhh hell. Quick, lean him over the side of the boat!
*blrrrrghghgh*
Oh, jeez. Okay, note to me. Next time we sail, Amplitude stays in the ball.



Posted Image

Additional note to me: return to Route 105 to find a new friend sometime soon.



Posted Image

Wait, what?! How did you get this number?!
I pulled a few strings and got it from the Devon Corp. president.



Posted Image

Since when do you give a damn about how I'm doing? Stop calling me!
I heard you beat Roxanne, and I wanted to congr*click*
I need to find the call blocking feature on this thing.
I think that was the most uncharitable thing I have ever seen you do. :disgust:
Lay off, Margaret. You don't understand.



Posted Image

Wow. Okay, need to return to Route 105 AND 106 and find new friends.
Amigo, as many friends as you may find, you cannot replace your family.
Not you too, Gustav...look, I'll deal with this in my own way, okay? I appreciate the...whatever-this-is, but I've got it.
If you say so.



Posted Image

Wasn't that fun? Let me know if you want to set sail again!
I'll get back to you on that. (No, seriously, I will. Island, remember?)
There's lots to do here, kid. A gym, that cave we passed, and some kind of...trendy house?
Do I LOOK like I care what phrases are trendy?
No, and you don't talk like it either! *ba-dum tssh*
One of these days, I'm going to find out how you do that.
Do what?
...skip it.



Posted Image

Oh, hey! Pretty slick. I may not be able to catch a lot of strong pokemon with this thing, but it's a non-zero amount, and that's an improvement!
... :sadface.jpg:
You look like hell, buddy. Need a lift?
... :smile:
Aaaaand UP ya go! PHEW! You're kinda heavy, kiddo!
Heh, that's kinda cute.
Don't get any ideas, you're WAY too heavy!



Posted Image

Well then, you use the toilet paper and clean the tip off, and wash up afterwards.
:eek: Oh my Arceus, I can't believe you just said that.
Dude, that's just wrong.
BWA-HAHAHAHA! Oh kid, that's priceless! :rofl:
Finally, back on dry land...



Posted Image

I'm supposed to give these out to anyone who wants to go deeper into the cave.
Wait. You mean you just hang out here all day and give out the worst HM in existence to passers-by?
Yep. And nobody is ever happy to get it, either.
If my book has a map to this cave, then do yoUSE THAT. Don't use this HM unless you absolutely have to!
Actually, I don't think it's an option. Can anyone even use this thing?
Not me. Nope. Not me. ... *shakes head* I'm afraid not. *zzzzz*
Here, want it back?
ARCEUS, no. If I get rid of enough of these things, I can start passing out better stuff! Just keep it, maybe you'll find a use for it as a coaster or something.



Posted Image

Ohhh good. Well, thank goodness I have a map. And hey, we can find a new friend down here!



Posted Image

...for Audrey to chat with!



Posted Image

BOXED FOREVER. :lurk:



And then there was grinding. All of the grinding forever! And this happened:



Posted ImagePosted Image

Manic, I feel...warm...
Something is happening to me as well!
Huh? Hey, this sort of reminds me of when Ace...everybody back off, give them some room!
Que?!
I've felt this once before, from when I was an Azurill! Hold on!



Posted ImagePosted Image

Gustav! You're...
Muy guapo, no?
No! Well, yes. But you're standing on two legs! Now I can finally do something I've been wanting to do since Littleroot!
Que?
High-five!
Down low. *smack!*
Hmmm. Surprisingly little change for me.
Awww, but you're even more adorable than you were before!
Yes, and I can hear more clearly, too. For example, I know that Steven is on the first floor of this cave, but the echoes tell me that we have to go down to go up.
Super-hearing? Slick!



And this happened too...



Posted Image

*zzzzsnort* Whuh?
You too, Dana? Cool, I can't wait to see what you do!
*streeeeetch* For the first time in my life, I feel...well-rested!



Posted Image

ASDFGKLTOEMLDPVU I CAN SEE THE FUTUUUUURE
Ahhh, so that's why Slakoth are always sleeping. They're saving up energy for their evolution!
COME ON LET'S GO FIND STEVEN WHY ARE WE STILL STANDING HERE LET'S GO GO GO
This...is an improvement. Right? Well, at least I don't have to carry you anymore. In fact, I don't think it's possible.



Posted Image

There you are! You know, you're a difficult guy to find.
So I've been told. So, I suppose you'd like something for your trouble.
Uh...well, I already have something worked out with your dad, so...
Oh, please. I must insist; without the working plebs like you, people like me would constantly be burdened with trivialities. Here, take this TM, I have dozens just like it.



Posted Image

Thanks...I think Perry could use this.



Posted Image

They really are! This is Gustav, and this is Amplitude, and this is...
Yes, yes, I'm sure your friends are simply delightful. I really must be off, though. Ta!
Wow. I mean, WOW. That guy is...
Steven Stone.
Full of himself?
Really busy?
I believe the phrase Manic is looking for is 'a douchebag'.
... :crying:
Awwww. It's okay, Amplitude. I'm sure he didn't MEAN to blow you off like that.
... :=/:
Okay, that guy just reserved himself a permanent spot on my shit-list for making Amplitude cry.



Posted Image

Huh. I wonder what this is for...
A doorstop. It's an Everstone, kid. Stops us from evolving.
Wha...why would anyone ever want to do that?
It has another better use, but only in breeding.
Huh. Well, into the bag you go. Maybe somebody else will want it.



Posted Image

Okay, team. Everybody's level 18. Perry, you're strong against fighting attacks. Ace, you're REALLY strong against fighting attacks. We're going to do the best we can to get Amplitude some experience too, okay?
Cool. Switching out?
Yeah. Amplitude is weak to all those fighting moves, so he'll mostly be leeching experience for this gym. You okay with that, little buddy?
... *nod*



Posted Image

OH WHAT THE HELL.
What, again? Lights, por favor!
A running gag is only funny when it's a gag!



Posted Image

So the trainers in here are guarding light switches?
Something like that, yeah.
HEY! EVERYBODY! I HAVE A BEAUTIFLY AND A WINGULL HERE AND I'M NOT AFRAID TO USE THEM!



Posted Image

Much better.



Posted Image

So I've heard. You ready for a fight?
I'm Brawly! Dewford's gym leader!
Yeah, we just covered that. I'm challenging you to a gym match.
I'm Brawly!
Bad trip, man. Let's get this over with.



Posted Image

YOU'RE LEADING WITH AMPLITUDE, ARE YOU NUTS?!



Posted Image

Nope. Get him, Perry!
It's cool, bro.



Posted Image

URK...dude...not cool...!
Shit...shit shit shit! That move does fixed damage, resistance won't help! Can you still take him, Perry?
Pretty sure, but if he does it again...



Posted Image

Dude...my mellow is officially harshed...I need a breather.
You did a good job, Perry. It's Amplitude's turn.
Que?!



Posted Image

Amigo, I know you are a skilled trainer, but this is practically suicide!
I know it looks like that, but it's really not. Let me demonstrate.



Posted Image

Focus Punch incoming.
...! :nervous:
Amplitude? Punch him in the face.



Posted Image

And that is why none of you will ever be learning Focus Punch.
... :confuse:
As long as you keep hitting him, he can't get a Focus Punch off.
... :smile:
And that's his only damaging move.
... :evil:
Sic 'em.
... :ese:



Posted ImagePosted Image

And now it's time for the main event. Ace, you're up!
Whoah! Hey there, tons-o'-fun!



Posted Image

Uhm, Ace? Not the best move there.
Huh? It'll help me take him down faster.
And vice versa. Guts - increases attack to 1.5x with a status ailment. Guess what poison is?
Yeah? Math lesson for ya: what's zero times 1.5?



Posted Image

Enough to get you down below half health before you can take him down?
Ha ha. Sheesh, everybody's a critic.



Posted Image

WHY DO YOU NOT RUN A WATER TYPE GYM?
Si, the surfing theme, it is strong here.
I'm Brawly!
Something tells me that he lacks the capacity to comprehend the subtleties of water. Or clothe himself.



Posted Image

Phew! Second badge down, six to go. C'mon, we should probably alert his caretaker or something...oh god, what's that smell?
... :sick:
Oh, man...I don't think any of us can make that kind of smell. That leaves...
I'm Brawly!
OKAYI'LLJUSTTAKETHETMTHANKSBYE.



Posted Image

Seriously, man. Just get us out of here. Slateport is fine.
What's that smell coming from the gym?
Everybody on board! The faster we get out of here, the better!




So, yeah. That happened! Boy, did that ever happen. Several evolutions, some new NPCs, and our second badge! Next stop is Slateport, and more plot 'fun'!

Examining facts about Brawly:

1) Lives in the dark
2) Doesn't seem to know his element
3) Teaches one of his pokemon Focus Punch as its only damaging move
4) No non-fighting damaging moves at all (ghost = sweep)
