Part 21

AAAAaaaaannnndddd we're back. Continuing from Part 1 of the thread.

Recap time!

This is Roxy. Roxy lives in Johto.

One day, her asshole neighbor, Prof. Elm, invites her to his lab to offering Roxy her own Pokémon...

...a Totodile emerged from the ball and immediately latched onto Roxy's head.
Stuck with her new, crazyass partner Roxy left to run an errand for Prof. Elm.
While on the errand Roxy met Prof. Oak.

Prof. Oak gave Roxy a Pokédex and tasked her with completing it.I swear, he gives those things out like candy.
Returning to Elm's lab with an egg, Roxy encountered a red-headed young man named Smogon.

Using the Chikorita he had stolen from Prof. Elm moments before, Gatorface the Totodile battled Chikorita and one in a horribly violent manner.

It was then suggested by Prof. Elm that Roxy take the Johto Gym challenge, defeating the 8 Gym Leaders of Johto.

Roxy left New Bark Town, trying to stop Gatorface from eating things as she went. Some of the things Gatorface managed to not eat included...

And Honeypot, a Bellsprout.
Traveling to nearby Violet City...

Roxy entered the Sprout Tower, a large temple dedicated to pokeyman training and I guess Bellsprout. Defeating the Master of the Temple earned Roxy the HM01.
Next Roxy made her way to the Violet City Pokémon Gym and battled its leader, Falkner.

With the help of Heavy G, Falkner was beaten easily. Roxy earned the Zephyr Badge.

After leaving Violet City, Roxy headed south.

Along the way she captured Yippy, a wooper.

Overjoyed with her new friend, Roxy promptly left Gatorface with her mother.

Roxy also briefly stopped by the Ruins of Alph, and unlocked a secret of the Unown.
After traveling south and arriving in Azalea Town, Roxy encountered a newly resurfaced Team Rocket, running an illegal (?) Slowpoke Tail ring.

Enraged by the defilement of cuteness, Roxy snapped and unleashed the fury on Team Rocket.
Later, having saved the Slowpoke, Roxy battled the Azalea City Gym Leader, Bugsy. A complete pushover. I mean fuck, he has Kakuna and Metapod.

Yippy slammed Bugsy in the pills and Roxy earned the Hive Badge.

Leaving Azalea, Roxy encountered Smogon again.

After a battle, Smogon told Roxy to step off and keep out of his way. He hates the weak.

In Ilex Forest, Roxy captured Pinchy, a Paras who would become her mini HM helper.

Checking in with her mother, Roxy learns her mother's beloved pet Azurill has gone missing...
Later, in Goldenrod City, Roxy battled Whitney, the Goldenrod Gym leader.

Heavy G once again carried Roxy to victory and made Whitney cry because she is a big stupid baby. Roxy earned the Plain Badge.

Finally, Roxy managed to capture a sleeping Sudowoodo that had been saying inappropriate things to people.

Stuff that keeps getting asked

I am not good at Pokeymans.
Try I'm pretty sure they're done with that whole "being hacked" thing. There's also a Pokémon Megathread in Games somewhere. Filter by the DS tag.

I missed this Emerald thread everybody is talking about. Where is it?
Pokémon Emerald, Let's Play You! [56k no]
Pokémon Emerald, Let's Continue Playing You! [56k no]
Misty's Journey of Cute, Fuzzy Pitfights continues! [56k no]
And a bonus:
Count von Count's Let's Play Pokémon Leaf Green thread

I want to name stuff
Nearly all the names are suggestions from others. Usually through AIM or in #pokegoons on zirc. I honestly can't remember where most monsters live so I ask as I catch. Have a name suggestion for a monster I haven't caught yet? Throw it out there and I'll work with what I get.

Can I get a rom?
I'm not using an emulator. This is being screencapped from my GBA player on my GCN hooked up to my TV tuner.

Bring back Gatorface
No, go fuck yourself.

And with that, First update of the second thread is forthcoming.
Thanks for everybody that drew a pic for this recap.
