Part 8: Honey Electric Balloons

Well crap in a hat.

Hello, what's all this then?

"We were told that if you rub it anywhere on your body they'll just lick it off. Anywhere."

"I am not ending up on youtube again."

Ahem, Suck less.

Not having only two pokémon gives me the edge!

They're zubats. He has two zubats.


I'm not sure whether this is convenient, stupid or both.

...your voice is so sensuous.

"awww yeaah."


And now we wait.

This sucks, let's go do some good for the community.

I bet I could take 'em. I'm the best after all~

...that's dumb you can just plug into a wall.

This sums up Team Galactic right here.

Volunteer in your community, that's the real way to make a new world that's better.

I don't understand why you need to steal electricity, no.

Sure why not.

Choro Notes: The Team Galactic Commanders can actually be pretty tough. They've got tough monsters at levels they shouldn't have them. They can easily wreck low leveled teams if you don't have a plan.
Music: Team Galactic Commander Battle

They'll always open with something to disable your team first. A Zubat to supersonic, a Bronzor to throw up a Light Screen, etc.

Mars's Zubat is packing Toxic. Toxic has incrementally increasing poison damage each turn, so stalling after Toxic'ing is actually a pretty good tactic.

Oh screw you, Mars.

Purugly is the evolved form of Glameow. The thing is Glameow doesn't evolve until L.38 which means this might not be a Purugly at all, just a really fat and ugly Glameow.

Something that fat should not be that fast.

And now you see my plan.


Using intimidate to take some of the sting out of those scratches.

And continue operation look unapprovingly at Purugly and judge it for its body appearance and lifestyle.

Yea that should be enough.

Fury Cutter's power increases with each consecutive hit.

Freakin' cat, always freakin' eating.

Problem solved via a cricket.


I too enjoyed your fat ugly cat doing things to my beloved team.

Seriously, you could just buy a bunch of AA batteries. Hell you could even steal them.

"This is gonna be the best rave ever."

Agreeing with the red-head on this, Charon.

Yup, get out.

Well who wouldn't gather Pokémon?

Not everything is meant to be taken literally.

Oh right, the bug-eating girl. Probably should have taken her somewhere safe, huh.


Oh hey the police officer who didn't do a thing AT ALL.

Oh this had better not be a theme with you. I ran them off with a cricket already.


I never lie.

Well it's a good thing I'm not hea- oh goddammit.

Yea, whatever.

Oh c'mon.

Oh... one of those cat droppings.


To shelter itself from cold, wintry winds, Burmy covers itself with a cloak made of twigs and leaves. During the summer, its cloak is thinner. If its cloak is broken in battle, it quickly remakes the cloak with materials nearby. Even if it is born where there are no cocooning materials, it somehow always ends up with a cloak.
Choro Notes: Such a strange Pokémon, Burmy. After battles it has to remake it's cloak and it changes depending where you fought. The cloak that female burmies have changes the type they evolve into, either Bug/Grass, Bug/Ground or Bug/Steel. Yes, the trashcloak is a burmy wrapped in fiberglass insulation.

HulkaMatt Notes: Fuckin' hell, Burmy. Let me tell you; they're fuckin pinecones. They evolve into some cool stuff but they just pine cones. I like the sandy one the most.
Cheapsteaks named this.

Whoa, wait what. What is that?


A Pokémon formed by the spirits of people and Pokémon. It loves damp, humid seasons. Because of the way it floats aimlessly, an old folktale calls it a "Signpost for Wandering Spirits." It is whispered that any child who mistakes Drifloon for a balloon and holds on to it could wind up missing. It tugs on the hands of children to steal them away. However, it gets pulled around instead.
Choro Notes: Drifloon! Adorable lil' buggers, they only show up on Fridays in front of the windworks. They're quick and have a ton of HP.

HulkaMatt Notes: Drifloon is a great pokemon that I wish I would have used more. Looks great; purple is a great color. Definitely one of my favorite pokemon from Generation 4! Everyone should have one.

Let's check more in the morning when there's less creepy things out.

I said LESS creepy things.
Choro Notes: Lol I crit'd it.

Bad Lion. I wanted to catch that monkey.



Luxio's claws loose electricity with enough amperage to cause fainting. It rests its forelegs on others to communicate with rhythmic electric pulses from its claws. They live in small groups. By gathering their tails together, they collectively generate powerful electricity from their claws.
Choro Notes: Tiny lion becomes medium sized lion. Nothing really to say about Luxio.

HulkaMatt Notes: BAD. ASS. LION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Little bee, little bee.


A Pokémon formed by three others together from birth. It collects and delivers honey to its colony and brings especially sweet floral honey to Vespiquen. At night, Combee sleep in a group of about a thousand, packed closely together in a lump, forming a beehive.
Choro Notes: Combee are fucking cute, but males are next to useless. They can't evolve and their only attacks are Gust and Sweet Scent. They can still find honey after battles though.

HulkaMatt Notes: I have caught many a combee in my day. All were male. Thus they wouldn't evolve. They're cute but jesus christ another pokemon I won't use unless I can evolve it eventually.


Sunlight colors Cherubi bright red. When the small ball is drained of nutrients, it shrivels to herald evolution. The small ball is not only full of nutrients, it is also tasty. Starly try to peck it off.
Choro Notes: Pokémon #420 smoke cherubi every day.

Me and Zorak both came up with this individually.
Hey guess what this is the worst method for finding Pokémon ever and we're not doing this ever again.
