Pokemon Emerald

by Chorocojo

Part 9

Rustboro City, where every building is almost a perfect rectangle. With such scenic locations as the Pokémon Center, or the majestic Pokémart. Also:

School! The old teacher there gave me a Quick Claw, which I immediately gave to Daytripper. Also:

That guy! Why would he be leaning in the corner... in a classroom... watching the students intently?

Ah, Scott. So we meet ag- Oh wait, you already said that...
Ok, long story short, he's looking for trainers who are experts at battling. My team still sucks so we aren't friends. I was also told someone in town was a Cut Master. After wandering the city for about, 4 seconds, I quickly determined he was probably in one of the building with a door.

Sure, ok.

While wandering the town, I found a man trying to make his daughter laugh.

Using my sharp, goonish wit I told him the funniest thing I could think of...

Sorry I'm not funny.
After realizing, as is. My team would be horribly raped by Roxxanne's Rock-type bastards, I figured I should probably train. I had left some trainers back on the previous route so I figure I should probably go test myself against their powerful monsters.

Donger took down one after a while. But guess what. HE HAD TWO MORE GODDAMN MAGIKARP. Pikablu just sort of choked them to death with his tail.



Alright, Donger has lived out her usefulness and shall be retired. She was put in The Box, because she was insolent. Hmm.. where to find a new monster... Just no.

Hmm, that's better. Wait, "Trainee Pokémon"? Eh, oh well.
Everyone welcome our newest party member, Buggy McDig.

Returning to training, and gaining a few levels.

While trekking back towards the woods, I came across a person I had neglected to see in front of the flower shop he gave me a TM I had always neglected in the past. I figured since my team was sorely lacking against the Rock-type I'd give it a shot.

Alright, I was ready to test Daytrippers nifty new ability to spit nuts.

Our first challenge was Daytripper vs. Geodude.

Holy fuck. I have vastly underestimated Bullet Seed in the past. Daytripper completely took this kid alone.

Seeing how I took out that kid's Geodude one shot, his buddies double teamed me. And yes the fact these two kids hang out with a large, burly concerned me too.
Daytripper and Buggy McDig took on their four geodudes in a double battle. However Thanks to the Quick Claw, Buggy got off only one successful scratch before 'tripper took out all of them with his nut shooting attack.
Alright, time for our first real gym battle, this one will probably be tough.

My stupidity missed screenshots of this. Roxxanne's first monster was a Geodude. I planned on continuing Daytripper's nut assault, unfortunately it brought Geodude down to 1, allowing it to counterattack... However, Roxxanne decided to waste one of two potions on Geodude. Not healing it enough to survive another Bullet Seed. Geodude number two went the same way. Daytripper learned Leech Seed after the second one.

Oh christ. A Moai. Nosepass's first move was to Block Daytripper from escaping. Daytripper managed to PAralyze with Stun Spore then Seed the bastard.

Holy shit. Hoooooly shit. Daytripper took down Nosepass with an extraordinarily good round of Seed Bullets. Five hits, two were critical. That's right. Daytripper completely went that entire gym on his own without any assistance (Well, Buggy McDig scratched a Geodude for a point of damage but that doesn't count.) I didn't even use a potion.

The lesson today is that no attack is truely horrible.

Well, ok, Mud Sport, Water Sport and Rock Smash all still suck ass.

After the battle there was much celebration and joy. Shoryugget got drunk off her ass and had sex with a sack of potatoes. You really had to of been there.

...Wait, Roxxanne.. Rocks Anne. Hahaha, wow. What are the odds of that?

Also I'm trying to get screenshots from battles from now on. I've been lacking in them, I know. My explanations of battles aren't as good as screenshots.
