Pokemon Quartz

Part 20

It actually occurs to me that we caught this guy's evolution (AAAAAAAAAAAAAA), huh (5 glory points to Sideshow Charlie )

Cold love... huh... you know, I'd make a comment about "corpses being cold" but... yeah...

My team looks pretty well set for fighting an Ice Gym, especially since most of the ice types we've ran into so far are also birds of some kind.

Well let's see, so far we've fought a lady obsessed with bees, then a "prophet" whose idea of interior decoration was to bury a bunch of corpses everywhere and be a dick about it, and then we fought the Arnold Schwarzeneggar of the Mole People world.

I'd pretty much summurize it so far as "pretty wierd", if you ask me.

... wait why would you want to do that? That's just silly and... oh wait, that's right, Corna, I gotcha.

Whoah, waterfall guy out of nowhere

I'm not sure what touching the waterfull would do for me at this point, other then make me wet in addition to being cold I should have brought a jacket

Wait, he was snowboarding inside a waterfall!? That is awesome.

I guess I'll see how my luck is doing right now with some Magnitude spam


Hm, I think I'll switch out and use Colonel Crazy to burn through this problem

You guys must have very, very intricate and precise thermostats in here. In this cold Gym. Made of ice.

Ah yes, Ice Floors. Scourge of my predecessors... I knew you'd be waiting for me


They have an entire trainer-less basement (roof?) level that I need to slide around on. No, the ladders do not actually correlate to places above. Some ladders you go down on top, if you go back up they take you to the beginning. MAGIC!

Falling in holes takes you to the beginning. Even if the holes are on the same level as the entrance. Who designed this place, Bloody Stupid Johnson?

Rather then comment on the sliding, try figuring out what's going on

So what you're saying is that you are... abnormal!? Or perhaps paranormal!? Are you a ghost!?!

I figured out that it'd be better to use rock-throw on these guys

Like this

This fish either has really huge bloody tears, a tongue coming out of his eye socket, or some really really wierd fins. Also he's rolling his eyes at me


TEAM FOXY is kicking arse and kicking more arse

... are you saying I'm wierd?

But I'd freeze to death... oh...

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I'm inside a really cold building freezing my cute little butt off!

Oh I get it, Cool, like ice.

Spinwig are quite possibly the most constipated looking Pokemon ever. Poor guy

Cutting it close. Col. Crazy time!

Colonel Crazy and Ionic are being awesome

You sneeze wierd

That's more like it

You do realize you don't get a cold literally from getting your body cold? It just lowers your body's immunities and makes you more likely to be infect. You can get hypothermia however from the cold

Going down here does nothing except waste my time

Leftward then!

Down the ladder on the left, which leads directly to another ladder which pops us up...


... who are you talking to? There's only me here

I have no idea what's going on

... *squint* It has a woman's head/ hair and breasts on its side. Seriously, look at it I don't want to know what natural selection process led to that

Allah Foxbar!

... damn

Ah, I see, Mimikat can mimmick your Pokemon's type when you attack it. Almost like some chameleon of some kind! Hm...

Not that it did anything before the might of Da King!

That move is dumb

Oh wow, this pink pokemon named Copycatte can copy your Pokemon! Almost like some morphing pink blob of some kind! Hm...

There shalt be no pretender Kings in the land of Corna There can be only one!

Yeah, but then you're wet

All of his body mass has frozen and fallen off He's also frozen in that position

blah blah effort we've seen FUEGOMELET beat up tons of Babos before with Double Kick nothing new :T

I know, trust me, I know

Almost done, I think...

... uh oh. Decisions decisions... Um... right first, I guess!

Hm... this doesn't look right.


Stupid Gym...


"I thought that someone like would like, totally have died by now!"

I... am unsure if she means Hearth as in metaphorically refering to one's hearth at home, or if she means your "heart" but can't pronounce things right. Judging by how "heart" has been called hearth before here, I'm thinking the latter

... er... I guess I have nothing to say to that other then jesus why? That's got to HURT


... I hate Corna. Blizzard is one of the most powerful ice moves and can pretty much onehit a ton of stuff at this level

FUEGOMELET is bringing the burn!

... wow, that actually looks sort of cool. Who'da thought? Though I'm sort of wondering why it's floating

... Nieeeevessssss

... what the hell is with this gym battle


Even Swap.bear cannot handle the cold

Da King almost got it, but alas...

... wait... wait a minute... didn't Ramon somehow already beat this Gym?

... that's BULLSHIT! I refuse to believe that. REFUSE! He must have bought the badges on Ebay or something

Welp, take two:

FUEGOMELET is starting us off this time

And immediately after, she of course pulls out the penguin, so I pull out my fastest Pokemon...

DA KING! For few things move faster then monarchy. No, seriously, a great man once wrote:


The only things known to go faster than ordinary light is monarchy, according to the philosopher Ly Tin Weedle. He reasoned like this: you can't have more than one king, and tradition demands that there is no gap between kings, so when a king dies the succession must therefore pass to the heir instantaneously. Presumably, he said, there must be some elementary particles -- kingons, or possibly queons -- that do this job, but of course succession sometimes fails if, in mid-flight, they strike an anti-particle, or republicon. His ambitious plans to use his discovery to send messages, involving the careful torturing of a small king in order to modulate the signal, were never fully expanded because, at that point, the bar closed.

Perhaps some day Ly Tin Weedle, some day...

... nutbunnies.

Not so

Sacrificial technique: SELF DESTRUCT!

... I hate you SO much

Luckily Blizzard is somewhat inaccurate (somewhat)

Seduce him silently in his sleep, Swap.bear. Put on your sexy eyes.

... well that was pointless.

Well, might as well use Col. Crazy as a sacrifice to get something a bit higher leveled back up...

More like Pengiun Zapper, eh? Eh!?

... nah sorry

Freech? Never heard of that before...

... what the hell is that thing. It has that eye thing like that fish that guy had earlier but... it's a bird. Or a dragon? I don't know...

... what, it doesn't even have any claws

Oh come on, it has speed boost too? That's retarded. Also, apparently it's not an ice type since ember did NOTHING

Well since fire didn't work, and since it looks like a bird, how about ROCKS!?

Alas poor Fuegomelet, rest for a time...

Alternate to rocks first, how about LIGHTNING!?

Hah! Take that!

So much for my bird theory. Well, you're certainly the ugliest dragon I've ever seen then.

Well, I guess that's a plus.

That's not.


Da King is really my powerhouse now a days.

I hope Ionic's glare is left burned into your very soul!

Even with its Speed Boost going crazy, Da King is still faster

... the main emotion I have right now is finally

Something like that

... ... ...


Team Foxy demands respect!

That's useful I guess... another crappy move to take up a slot

Why exactly do you guys have these unrelated TMs anyway?

Hm... okay I guess? I'm not a fan of using TMs, so if anyone knows a good time to use them that they'd want, say something

So I've got a lukewarm heart?

Oh fuck Run


Er... thanks I guess? You can take it back though if it'd mean you'd go away forever.

Oh god...

Someone help me please someone help me...



... I want to die. Right now.

Where's a random chinese death laser sattelite when you need it

For those who didn't catch it, he forced me to kiss him
