Why the hell did you not teach swampert surf or waterfall? I can undestand keeping Muddy water, but water gun? really?

... eh.

anyway, to your questions:

Kanto - Lorelei, just cause i didnt care for anyone else in that league/she gve me the most trouble. Not I dont remember why, I think it had something to do with me not having any ground or fire types cause I didnt think Id need them. And ebcause this was before vaporeon got moves like wish and an abilitiy like water absorb I couldnt just tank the shit out of her with it.

Jhoto - Im gonna say Karen. She packed an Umbreon which was a bitch, and because shes the only real new character (no, Koga doesnt count), and I didnt like will as much, she wins by default. plus... she was kinda hot to me back then, but I was younger. she still is kinda cute, and I know a friend has something special for her.

Hoenn - Drakes the man, nuff said.

Sinnoh - Probably doesnt count but I would say Cynthia, and shes my favorite Champion too. She seemed like the kinda girl I would get a long with.

Unova - Caitlyn. I was just glad to see her getting some major screen time and night being that silent, I need my man to fight my battles for me.

Question time: Of all the elite four members in all the games which one(s) do/did you like? For me, Drake is my favorite. I'm not too fond of Lorelei, though. If only because I called her "L'Oréal" for a while by mistake. Oh, and Lance, before he became the champion. He was cool.

All of them, the elite four sort of seem like a joke to me. Their Pokemon aren't even fully evolved when they're at such a high level. I know that sounds unreasonable of me and all but-

HEY!! Don't laugh at me (God, his laugh is like a personal heck... I can't bear it..) But besides that, I do hope you succeed well. This particular post (comic) was pretty hilarious yet to many to point out specifically. Still, can't wait to see more from you man ^_^.

well, don't go anywhere. I got yet another update in the works. Should be out in a short bit. I'll PM you the link

Okay, I was expecting a more difficult fight than that.

Either the "elite" four are a joke or you're just that good.

Let's Play: Pokemon Ruby 29: In which we realize that some things never change

Question: Which Elite Four + Champion combo did you find the hardest? For me, it's the one from Gen 1. I've never beaten Gary Oak as champion.

CM156:

That video is banned in my country :(

Basically, it's like the Illuminati. But if this guy asks me to call him "Bob", I'm running out.

You've entered the minotaur's labyrinth, there's no going back now.

Next time: Post-game wrap-up

Out of curiosity, how much post game content is there that needs wrapping up?

Wow, its kinda sad to think that you'll be finishing this up soon. Hopeflly we'll get another one (I always like pokemon LP's in particular or screeen shot ones that can add humour, I just cant watch a straight up LP), but thats up to you.

As to the question...

Gary never really gave me an issue, But i had pretty much every counter I needed (that and I went with Venasaur so charizard is insanely easy when you a bringa vaporeon to that fight and it just trucks four of his pokemon. I will say that choosing Blastoise created some problems, cause i dont pick vaporeon up when I do and that just makes it a bitch to deal with. Though really Gary's weakness is a sturdy water pokemon no matter which pokemon you choose (even Charmander, though that Gyrados can be a pain if youre not packing some volts) since with ice beam you can beat at least 3 of his pokemon (four if you can hit that exaggutor quick enough or withstand the shot. his alakazam is really the hardest pokemon to deal with, but all you need is a dark type with a good physical attack and decent sp. def. Or something that can hit physcially hard, cause thats where it hurts it the most. In Gen one, all you really need is a durable physically hitting pokemon (I have success with Rhydon to be honest) and you can crush his Alakazam despite that bullshit stat mixing the first gen did.

Lance was even more of a joke, but then again, i thought most of that elite four was an I ran through them with three pokemon (Vaporeon, Typhlosion, Amphoras). Send out Amph to beat his Gyrados and then just swept with vaporeon ice beam, while my Typhlosion just kinda hanged back and chilled out.

the third generation nintendo and gamefreak realized that they needed to stop giving me a chance to use vaporeon to just crush my opponent, but Stephen isnt all that difficult really. His team is largely a joke and yo only really need two or three types to effectively sweep him. Plus they gave my Flygon (cause before I would just rip shit up with dragonite when my vaporeon needed a breather) and when he learned sandstorm my battle plan effectively changed to what I recommended and I just statused the hell out of the Elite 4. but thats only if I have a swampert, my battle strategy changes completely with blaziken.

Cynthia straight up worked me over the first time I fought her and did a complete wipe of my team. the second time I tried was a nuzlocke (since I have a rule in game [even regular] if I dont beat the E4 and champ I just stop playing and start over) was even worse, cause that fucker flint (yeah, i dont like him, even as a chracter. it doesnt help that he reminds me of pennywise either) killed my cherrim, and my rapidash was taken down by Lucians Bronzong. So when I went to face her with just four pokemon, Cynthia just bent me over a chair and gave me another ass stomping. the third time I finally beat her (and that damn milotic, I swear thats her hardest pokemon to beat). However, even though she handed my balls back to me twice, i could never really hate her. thats why shes my favorite Champion and E4 Member.

Alder actually left my disappointed. N was harder, and that was after my Zekrom completely destroyed his Reshiram (though to be fair I didnt use Zekrom in the battle after that. but then again, i didnt use him or any other ubers against alder). he's got a real weakness to Fire in that two of his pokemon are x2 weak to it and one is x4. You factor in he's got a Bouffalant thats x2 weak to Fighting (and a lack of anyhting to hit super effective against it), a dragon thats x2 weak to ice, and his "ultimate" pokemon Volcarona is x2 weak to water, you can effectively go in there with a dharmatan (with his fire attacks and hammer arm) and Samurott (who learns a fighting move revenge, ice type blizzard, and water attacks like surf and waterfall) and sweep his team with just two pokemon (which i did). And the Elite 4 are so much tougher the secound time through.

...

so yeah, Im going to say Cynthia, cause shes the only one that provides a challenge and still beats me from tiem to time even when I prepare for her.

EDIT: also, I notice you didnt use marcargo or cacturne in the final battle. Or at least I dont think you did.

Question: Which Elite Four + Champion combo did you find the hardest? For me, it's the one from Gen 1. I've never beaten Gary Oak as champion.

Gary was kinda hard, but that was due more to the terrible balance and poor move sets of almost all of the pokemon (back in RBGY) (back then mews "learn all the TMs" ability was much more useful)

In 3rd gen he was a challenge again, especially in round 2.

Honestly, Cynthia was the only one who was a challenge (mostly due to Garchomp)

Lance was low leveled so I plowed through him.

Steven was destroyed by Blaziken.

Wallace was somewhat of a challenge, but I never lost to him.

Alder was really easy because of the terrible typings his pokemon had. (bug is shit at taking hits.)

It has to be the Sinnoh Elite four, lead by Cynthia. They new how to defend themselves against there Pokemon's weakness and Cynthia herself, was just plain difficult. That Dragon Rush attack from her Garchomp never once missed against me and it was always a critical hit. Guess I just have bad luck.

Let's Play: Pokemon Ruby Post Game 1: In which we go sailing

Question time:
What is the first thing you tend to do after you take on the Elite Four?

Also:

If they have to be taken on a second time, I go and train my Pokemon. If I've defeated them completey, I will go and do the following things.

1.Train anyway.

2.Take on a battle challenge such as the subway or in the gen 4 games the battle frontier.

3.Catch any legendaries I may have missed out on, such as wandering legendaries (Yes that's what I call them) I'm currently hunting Latias in Heartgold, came close a few times but my Pidgeot must be really tired chasing it via fly.

I figure if Pokemon were real it would probably go like this.

Me: Pidgeot use fly.

Pidgeot: Right (in Poke language)

battle Latias, it gets away.

Me: Pidgeot use fly.

Pidgeot Right.

much much later.

Me: Pidgeot use...

Pidgeot: No fuck you I'm beat, get one of your other pokemon to chase it.

Edit: Names for the Regis, how about Huey, Dewey and Louie after the kids from Ducktales?

I was thinking Billybob, Joebob, and BobBob.

Also:

A Katawa shoujo reference and a 9 hours 9 persons 9 doors reference. It's like you're intentionally trying to make me happy. those two games were some of my favorites that I've played recently.

Regarding endgame, I usually grind the elite 4 for experience and then tool around.

as for names, how bout "the good, the bad, and the ugly"? (steel, ice, rock respectively)

As much as I really hate to say this, I've never played 9 hours 9 persons 9 doors, so I don't know what I did that referenced them.

And yeah. I thought Katawa Shoujo was a pretty good game. And you can't beat free.

Cool, you played Katawa Shoujo!! :D

As for the Regi's;

I actually like Sextus' idea of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly."

ChupathingyX:

I take it you did as well?

I actually did an (intentionally horrid) voice over of the first few minutes of it with a few friends. More for our own enjoyment than anyone else's

And I'm in agreement about the name. That's the best I've seen so far.

CM156:

I take it you did as well?

Yes, and I thought it was fantastic. I actually put ME2, DA:O and HL2:E2 on hold while I played through it.

And I'm in agreement about the name. That's the best I've seen so far.

Are you going to capture all of the legendaries in this game?

For all the ones that it's possible to catch, yes.

Also, you were playing all those games at one time? I don't usually do that myself, honestly. How are you liking them so far?

CM156:

Neither do I as I rarely buy many games at once.

ME2 is the one I'm playing primarily and I'm enjoying that but there are some issues but overall it's fun. The squadmates are mostly good but the lack of communication between them (compared to DA:O) is a bit disappointing.

DA:O is good so far and although it took a while to get used to some mechanics (such as lockpicking) I seem to be getting the hang of it, plus the companion interactions are funny.

I've hardly played much of HL2:E2 but so far it's pretty good, though I don't think playing it first was a good idea (it was gifted to me by a friend).

I see.

As for Dragon Age 2, I'm sure you've heard by now that the reviews of it are... mixed at best.

Personally, I'm waiting to see how ME3 does as well. It could be bad for bioware if it bombs. I doubt that'll happen, but it could, no?

CM156:

Yeah, I am quite interested to see whether ME3 suceeds or not, however, I doubt it will completely bomb.

usually I tend to see if any new routes open up then run through them and use any pokemon centers so i can fly to them and explore at my convenience.

As to the names... I named mine Eddie, Susan, and John (there's an easy reference for a cookie.

I figured you named Relicanth "Allice" after the eygptian princess who was kept in cryostatis in a block of Ice-9 from 999, since they're both ancient 'n stuff.

Katawa Shoujo is my favorite game of the year so far. I beat Hanako, Shizune, and Lilly's routes and I'm starting Emi's. Funnily enough, I was going for a run today, but it was cold out and my chest was real sore from weight lifting, so my heart was beating like crazy and the first thing that came to mind was how much I felt like Hisao. :)

As for the regi names If you want another suggestion "Ed, Edd, and Eddy" (after my favorite cartoon as a kid.)

From what I could tell, the only reason DA2 failed was because they rushed it. I think that ME is a more popular bioware series than DA, so chances are that bioware is putting most of their effort into making ME3 good.

Hey, I was kinda hoping it was a Herman Cain video game.

By the way, I'm thinking about Lping pokemon FireRed next. Is that something ya'll would be interested in seeing?

Also:

Since no one saw/guessed/cared/could figure out, and i told you I'd tell you what my choice was a reference to i fgured i'd quote you and let you know.

its a reference to the dark tower series by Stephen King. They are the three other main human characters that roland draws into his group and makes into gunslingers and a part of his ka-tet.

In the book, they called John "Jake" cause tahts the name he liked and wanted people to call him. But his real name in the series is John Chambers, so I thought I'd use John to throw people off. I could have used Bama, but i dont think it would look right if you had choosen my naming scheme.

I haven't read the dark tower yet cuz I'm not much of a fiction reader. That said, I've heard good things about it.

Oh, and my current plan is to LP pokemon FireRed after this. That sound like something you'd like to see? Since I didn't actually play FR, I'll be interested to see how they changed it from the original.

I thought is was fun the read through this LP. I don't know how you could improve upon it sadly. But I would like to see a FireRed LP, I would like to see say a Gold/Silver/Crystal more but I'm sure I could find one on youtube or something.

I can't really say there was anything bad with this LP at all. I think you made the right decision to drop the emo Raven persona at the start, as your own narration has supplied plenty of humour. Overall a very good screenshot LP.

As for FireRed - sounds good. However, can you get hold of emulators for any other platforms? I'd love to see a HeartGold/SoulSilver (or just Gold/Silver) or Platinum LP.

Aw, well, thanks guys. Personally, I didn't much care for the persona, and I was looking for any excuse to drop it.

Actually, that's part of the plan. I'm searching around for a good way to do a Pearl LP (Not much a fan of Platinum for some reason), followed by a SoulSilver one, after FireRed.

Well I enjoyed it, don't know how you could improve other than looking over your posts and not double posting images.

I guess I would have liked to see your pokemon have personality, but I know how you were on that. still I liked that since it was a little awkward to play the part you wanted to give raven, it was nice just getting commentary.

I'd like to see it. I'd tell you to do a Nuzlocke but I know what you said about those so Im not too worried about if you will or not.

So thats all i can really say. maybe some more personalities. I'd recommend you a hack and say play scorched earth but its up to you.
