I'm afraid that I don't know what it's a reference to...

Like I said, a very obscure reference. Xander is a Buffy reference and Baltar is a Battlestar Galactica reference.
If we need a pokemon reference, I'd suggest a name like Emerald or Ruby! Something from the original trainer's name.

I still like the name "Raven" a lot. Perhaps it's because I love the horrid fanfiction "My Immortal" but it's just resonating with me well.

Yeah, a Teen Titans thing will be nice! i don't know much about My Immortal, but I hear that it's the worst(and unintentionally) the funniest fan fic ever! I'm gonna check it out.

Bennett the Sage did a reading of it. That's what I'd recommend.

So is everyone alright with Mudkip as a starter?

Mudkip is perfect! Only one weakness: Grass! S/he can learn all sorts of moves like Hammer Arm and Muddy Water. Ignore the damn Torchick and Treecko!

CM156:
-Snippit do-dah-

Yes, Mudkip is the the best starter cause from he/she has no weakness other than grass type!

mudkip is the best(3rd gen and on) starter. I remember choosing mudkip on my first play of saphire and I never regretted it. and I would recommend naming your rival krillin

If you would like, perhaps we could decide on a theme for this let's play? Take this gem of a let's play we had on here a while ago link.

The theme was one of manliness and it was hilarious.

I noticed your comment about my immortal, perhaps you could make that the theme? I can see that being quite hilarious. Tell us what you think.

Name: Ruby

My name is always the name of the version (except Leaf Green/Fire Red)

Sadly, I don't think I'm cleaver enough to do something like that.

Now it's time for the discussion question: Did you play Pokemon Ruby or Saphire?

EDIT: UPDATE

(Sorry about the border on the images. For some reason, my computer won't let me edit them out.)

Now it's time for the discussion question: Did you play Pokemon Ruby or Saphire?

Sapphire, then Emerald. I loved the 2nd and 3rd generations. For some reason, I always bought the less popular of the two versions (Blue, Silver, Sapphire, Leaf Green, SoulSilver, and then bucking the trend with Diamond and Black. I also have Platinum and Emerald). Big winged whale thing appealed to me more than angry looking geometry dinosaur, I guess.

It was about an even split for me.

I got Red, Silver, Ruby, Pearl, and then Black. Oh, and I got HeartGold as a birthday gift as well.

OT: By the way, if anyone has nickname suggestions, please say so.

Played Blue, Yellow, Silver, Ruby, Emerald, FireRed, LeafGreen, Pearl, Platinum, Black, White, and SoulSilver.

No good nickname suggestions, but I do think that if you're willing to take the time that you should catch a Ralts. Gardevoir is a badass.

That was actually my plan. It comes in handy during the second Gym. And yes. Gardevoir is badass.

Four points I'd like to address: 1 glad to see something like this happening, the last few haven't made it far enough to actually end. 2 I'm bummed I missed on voting on the pokemon, but oh well. 3 Shiny Poochyena named Barkspawn= A happy Sage. 4 Yay on the Ralts, defiantly one of my favorite evolution lines.

You should totally teach it hypnosis and dream eater

And I got sapphire. It was a gift from my brother who got ruby. Swampert + gardevoir = ultimate win.

1. I intend to take this to the end. Unless I die, I'll try to do at least 4 updates a week (M/W/F/Sat or Sun). If I die, I'll sadly have to end the series.

2. There will be other chances to vote. Don't worry. You'll get to pick what fossil we get, for example.

3. I name a good number of dogs in video games "Barkspawn".

4. Yeah. It's pretty powerful, isn't it?

I was never a huge fan of that combo, to be honest. I taught it to Spiritomb in Pearl, but that's it.

Seriously? Are actually playing this full screen? You shouldn't be doing that. It makes your screen shoots look horrible. You should keep them at their standard resolution. Most of all crop out task bar, the emulator window, and your mouse pointer. It is horrible and no on wants to look at it.

CM156:

I think you could improve in the following areas...
Then please, tell me. If I can get better, by all means, tell me what I should do. Comments and critique are always welcome.

I'd suggest picking a persona and writing first person, they always make screenshot LPs that much better for me at least (I'd vote for using the persona of a some emo kid like Bella Swan since you chose the name Raven). Really get into character, you can make better jokes then. Editing out the emulator bar at the top would be a nice touch too if that's not too much work.

As for your discussion question - I played Emerald :) I've never owned a GBA so by the time I got hold of my brother's Emerald was already out.

Edit - Oh and let us vote on the names of Pokemon you know you're going to catch sooner or later :)

That sounds like a funny idea. How about I use Italicized text for talking in character, and regular text for when I want to make comments and critique.

I think I'll make Raven an emo/goth who says things like "Life is pain" or "You're just a tool of the SYSTEM!"

And I'll edit out the bar. I'm working on a program to do that, but if worst comes to worst, I'll do in manually.

Sorry about that. The image editing software wouldn't let me crop them out, for some odd reason. I've found a work around fix sorta thing. I'll apply that to the next update. Thank you for your critique.

I forgot to point out, but because you are playing it fullscreen apparently, all the images are very badly stretched horizontally making them look really bad, which is why you shouldn't play it fullscreen

Well, I'm going to catch a Ralts soon. Why don't you guys vote on a name for that?

The problem with original aspect ratio is that I feel it's a bit too small.

Congrats on the Shiny find. You should take it to league, even if it is just a Poochyena.

EDIT: also are you gonna have all your updates in one thread and then edit the title or make a new one each time?

If you feel it is too small then up can upscale it in post, but, keep the images correctly scaled. Honestly the original sized looks fine. RedChocobo's pokemon LPs are at source resolution for example.

I'll be updating this thread. At the end of each update, I'll include a question or an ask for a suggestion. Such as what to name a Pokemon I plan on catching. Ralts is the next one.

My question is if anyone else is bothered by the wider aspect ratio? If it's a major problem for people, I'll try to correct it.

I never got round to owning a Gameboy advance so sadly I never played this one =[

...

oka.

I always name my ralts Chloe after someone I know, so thats an idea if you want. then again I always catch female ralts.

And as a sorta aside thing, the wide screen doesnt bother me.

I played Blue, Yellow, Gold, Fire Red, and finally Heart Gold.

I recently bought an old cartridge of Ruby, but the internal battery was dead. Does that mean I can't advance in the game somehow?

You should still be able too. You just won't able to do a few minor events. That should be it.

Go for it. You should just be the narrator though, let Raven be the main character :)

Well, I was going to make a point or two about how Team Magma is like a Cult, but I get the feeling that Raven would want to join them, as what they're doing...

Do you have a name suggestion for a Ralts? Assuming it's a female one, that is.

CM156:

They're also really, really incompetant. They make Team Rocket look threatening.

As for the Ralts I'd suggest The Bride. I think that'd fit, would suit gardy's dress thing too. If it's male call it Bridget.

How does everyone else feel about that as a name?

If it's male call it Bridget.

Not a bad name choice, actually. I won't be writing the entire LP from the view of Raven, as I said. I'm not witty enough to do that.

Ah well it can be my gimmick when I get around to LPing something :)

I...I didn't know you were doing an LP!?

CM156:
Now, it's time to venture forward! Huzzah!

Now it's time for the discussion question: Did you play Pokemon Ruby or Saphire?

The only Pokemon game I've played much is Pokemon Snap, so I can't say. The good thing is that this LP will be informative to me as I'm basically going into this mostly blind.

Also, like other people have said, you should crp the imaqges so they don't mess with the page size.

That's right. We got a SHINY pokemon! This is going to make it more interesting...
[/spoiler]

So are shinies more powerful, or just....shiny?
