Man, I wonder what sort of cool, awesome Pokemon I'll get to see when I look around in the Dreamyard? According to the Pokedex, Munna's a Psychic-type, so...
Oh well. Got my team all patched up at the Pokemon Center, so now it's time to go out and take a look for myself. Ah, but before that...
2400 only gets me 4 Great Balls?
Whoa, these things are expensive. And I've only got 7, now...
Ah well. I'll just catch as many different Pokemon as I can, then.
...Huh. Bianca's still here. Still looking for that Munna, I suppose.
Awwww, it's so cute! Togepi, the Spike Ball PokemonAs its energy, Togepi uses the positive emotions of compassion and pleasure exuded by people and Pokémon. This Pokémon stores up feelings of happiness inside its shell, then shares them with others. A proverb claims that happiness will come to anyone who can make a sleeping Togepi stand up.
...It seemed a fitting nickname.
Omelette's moves are Growl, Charm, Metronome, and Sweet Kiss. Growl, Charm, and Sweet Kiss I'm sure you remember, but Metronome is a new one. The move which the Clefairy line is known for, it's a move in which the user waves its fingers around randomly, and then that somehow lets it use one randomly-selected move. It can lead to some incredibly fun results in play, but you have to be prepared for the possibility that you'll get less-useful moves if you decide to use it.
Omelette's ability, Serene Grace, is extremely useful on support Pokemon, which he will definitely evolve into. When you use a move that does damage and has a chance of an added effect, like Poison Tail's poison or Ember's burn, the chance of that additional effect happening is doubled. Particularly useful when you're trying to Freeze an opponent.
Anyway, let's see what else is out here...Chingling, the Bell PokemonIt moves with flouncing hops. Each time it hops, it makes a ringing sound. It deafens foes by emitting high-frequency cries. It emits these cries by agitating an orb at the back of its throat. Once it starts, it can cry for an awfully long time.
Credit to Gensokian for the name
Bellhop's moves are Recover, Wrap, Growl, and Astonish. Recover is a move in which the user restores its hit points by an amount equal to half its max. A number of Psychic Pokemon are known for spamming this move. Wrap is a weak move in which vines or the user's body or something are used to ensnare and squeeze the target. After the initial attack, the target takes a small amount of damage over time for the next four to five turns. Astonish is a Ghost-type move. 30 power, and it has a good chance of making the target flinch.
Bellhop's ability is Levitate. He's immune to Ground-type moves, which is nice. ^^Natu, the Tiny Bird PokemonNatu cannot fly because its wings are not yet fully grown. If your eyes meet with this Pokémon's eyes, it will stare back intently at you. But if you move even slightly, it will hop away to safety. Natu has a highly developed jumping ability. The Pokémon flaps and leaps onto tree branches that are taller than grown-up people to pick at the tree's new shoots. It also picks food from cactus plants, deftly avoiding buds and spines. It seems to skip about to move.
...What? The name is hilarious, and you know it.
Natu-ral's moves are Air Cutter, Leer, Night Shade, and Teleport. The only new one of these is Teleport, which can be used to escape from Wild Pokemon in battle and teleport back to the nearest Pokemon Center out of battle. The latter is convenient, but the former just makes it difficult to catch as a Wild Pokemon. Alas, unfortunately, you cannot use it to escape trainer battles.
Natu-ral's ability is Synchronize. Any time a foe manages to burn, poison, or paralyze her, the condition is passed onto said foe as well. Useful if you face a foe who loves one or more of those status effects, but otherwise...
Aww, hey, Munna. ^^ You doing okay? Hang on, just stay riiiight there...Munna, the Dream Eater PokemonMunna always float in the air. They eat the dreams of people and Pokémon. When one eats a pleasant dream, it expels pink-colored mist. People whose dreams are eaten by them forget what the dreams had been about.
This is what happens when people don't come up with name enough ideas. I'm particularly disappointed because Munna is actually a Tapir.
Munna's moves are Defense Curl, Lucky Chant, Yawn, and Psybeam. Defense Curl raises the user's defense by one stage, Lucky Chant protects the user's entire team from critical hits, Yawn is a move that puts the target to sleep without fail at the end of the turn after it is used, and Psybeam is the most powerful Psychic-type attack we're likely to have available for a while. Even if it didn't have respectable defenses, I'd be considering it for the team on that alone.
Sadly, Munna's ability is Telepathy. Useless outside of Double Battles, Telepathy prevents Munna from taking any damage from its ally's attacks. This would let Munna team up with, say, a Ground-type who spammed Earthquake without any trouble, but has no utility whatsoever in Single Battles.Venonat, the Insect PokemonVenonat is said to have evolved with a coat of thin, stiff hair that covers its entire body for protection. It possesses large eyes that never fail to spot even minuscule prey. Its eyes also function as radar units, enabling it to be active in darkness. The eyes can even shoot powerful beams. The small bugs it eats appear only at night, so it sleeps in a hole in a tree until night falls. At night, its kind is drawn by light.
...'Cause it's got a hairy body, see?
Harriet knows the moves Disable, Foresight, Leech Life, and Supersonic. Disable is a move that, for four turns, prevents the target from using the last move it used. Supersonic, meanwhile, is a 55 accuracy move which confuses the target if it hits. Wild Zubat, as you may or may not recall, used to be particularly annoying about using this move over and over again.
...Ah, great, a creepy one.
Oh well, in the ball you go.Drowzee, the Hypnosis PokemonA descendant of the legendary animal baku, which is said to eat dreams. It is skilled at hypnotism. It puts enemies to sleep, then eats their dreams. It can tell what people are dreaming by sniffing with its big nose. It loves fun dreams. Occasionally, it gets sick from eating bad dreams. If you think that you had a good dream, but you can't remember it, a Drowzee has probably eaten it. It remembers every dream it eats. It rarely eats the dreams of adults because children's are much tastier. If your nose becomes itchy while you are sleeping, it's a sure sign that one of these Pokémon is standing above your pillow and trying to eat your dream through your nostrils.
...Yeah, these nicknames are getting worse, aren't they?
It certainly feels that way to me, anyway.
Creepy Lady's moves are Pound, Hypnosis, Disable, and Confusion. Its ability, Forewarn, lets it know what one of its opponents' moves is when it first hit the battlefield.
Whoo, dizzy panda!
No, seriously. During the fight, this Spinda used Metronome, and it wound up copying the signature move of Reshiram
, Black version's main legendary, to attack me with. Fusion Flare looked pretty impressive...
I'm down to my last Pokeball, too. Looks like this is it for the day...Spinda, the Spot Panda PokemonNo two Spinda are said to have identical spot patterns on their hides. The chances of two Spinda having identical spot patterns is less than one in four billion. This Pokémon moves in a curious manner as if it is stumbling in dizziness. Its shaky, tottering steps give it the appearance of dancing. The lurching movements of this Pokémon can cause its opponent to become confused.
Credit goes to Chris Brady for the name.
The bit in the Pokedex entry about the spot patterns is true, by the way. The position of Spinda's spots on its face is determined by its personality value. There literally are over four billion possible combination for the placement of the four spots on its face, too. I have to admit, though, this particular one doesn't look bad...
Incidentally, I was actually expecting to take more casualties catching it than I did. These things were upgraded to have respectable base stats of 80 across the board, giving them absurd stats at this early stage of the game, and making it so that they're at least not left in the dust in the late game. I've had Spinda wipe out two thirds of my team before, when I've attempted to catch one in the past.
Po's moves are Metronome, Tackle, Uproar, and Copycat. Uproar is a move that lasts three turns, where the Pokemon uses the same attack each turn. While using this move, the user cannot be put to sleep.
More importantly, Po's ability? Contrary
Yep, that means that the same broken ability that that cheater Cheren and his Snivy have is now mine
Anyway, since I've caught all the Pokemon I can, I guess it's finally time to do what I've been dreading.
I've got to... talk... to Fennel...
Uh-huh. That's what they all say, kid. Then, the FBI figures out where the bodies are buried.
...Uh-huh. I think I'll just assume you're getting their permission first. I mean, I don't really know how a 'save file' works, but I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to copy them without asking.
What C-Gear? Your hands are completely empty.
Like my laptop computer, then?
You're... storing a computer... inside another computer
Ow... ><; My brain...
Well, I guess free stuff is free stuff... I'm not turning this on, though.
It might actually be a mind-control device, or something.
...Did you not just hear me say I'm not turning this on? I meant that as in 'ever', not just 'I'm not turning it on today'.
Game what now?
No, wait, never mind. I don't actually care.
...Yeah, no. I kinda want to just hurry up and get out of here now.
Oh, look, the illusion of choice. I guess you really are a friend of Professor Juniper.
Uh... That kinda sounds horribly unethical.
...No. I'm not going to complain that that doesn't actually explain anything. I'm not falling for your trap, Fennel. You just want a chance to talk for even longer.
'We learned that Pokemon have dreams when they sleep!'.
Uh-huh. Yeah. I'll get right on that.
Oh? What is it?
Another GPS? My Mom already gave me one of those. She's awesome like that.
...So it's basically a glorified friends list. Which you've devoted an entire separate machine to handle for no reason all.
No! Not another one!
Yeah, goodbye. I'm leaving now. You two can explain everything to each other if you want to babble on about your own inventions so much.
I'm off to the Dreamyard for some more training.
Man, this is so much better than talking to Fennel. Why did I even have to go and do that, anyway?
...Oh, right. That stupid jerk wouldn't let me past. Crazy old man...
Razor Shell is a pretty cool move. When using it, Kenny turns that cute little Scalchop on his chest into a water-sword. ^^
!!!Dewott, the Discipline PokemonScalchop techniques differ from one Dewott to another. It never neglects maintaining its scalchops. Strict training is how it learns its flowing double-scalchop technique.
Ah, so Oshawott evolves into Dewott at level 17. I wonder if this means his name needs changing to something more fitting, now?
One thing to note from the middle image above? Kenny is now a Water/Fighting-type Pokemon.
Also, he finally has a move with increased chances to crit to go with his Focus Energy move. Quadrupled crit chances are now officially awesome.
A little training with Hardboiled didn't really produce the desired results, and to be honest, I'm kinda getting tired of having her as a useless load on my team. ^^; So...Chansey, the Egg PokemonA rare and elusive Pokémon that is said to bring happiness to those who manage to get it. Chansey lays nutritionally excellent eggs on an everyday basis. The eggs are so delicious, they are easily and eagerly devoured by even those people who have lost their appetite.
Farewell, Hardboiled. I'll probably only get you out once I get the proper incense to evolve you into your final stage more quickly.
And now, say hello to the newest member of the team, everyone!
The mighty Dragon Warrior!
Faint Attack isn't a bad move to have, but given that Po both has stats currently more well-suited to Special Attack, and the lack of the STAB bonus... Well, it's just not as useful as Tackle, even if it never misses.
No, seriously. In Generation V, Tackle is a 50 Power move, now. It's actually pretty awesome.
With the addition of Take Down to her arsenal, Scamp has officially become a powerhouse. ^^
Hmm. I guess that's enough in the way of training for now. Still lots of Pokemon in the Dreamyard to catch, though. But I'm out of money...
Ah! I know, I'll just go and beat some rich trainers on Route 3 for cash!
Yes, now let me through.
Ahhh, finally, Route 3... ^^
Hmm? What's that building up ahead?
Ah, I see. I suppose I could drop off someone on my team, if I wanted them to level up and grow while I walked around. Have I got anyone on my team like that?
...Nah, I guess not. Not at the moment, anyway. Besides, training on Audino is faster anyway.
Oh? Hmm. I know I came to Route 3 to battle and get some cash, but I don't think I want to beat up little kids for their milk money...
Eh, I'll skip this place for now.
Awww, aren't you two just the cutest little things ever?
See? Totally adorable. ^^
They even have matching Pokemon.
Though, Plusle and Minun probably would have been a better team choice here.
I guess they aren't available in the surrounding area.
I love Metronome. ^^
Sorry, kids. You did manage to get Scamp down pretty low, though...
Hmm. Is there anywhere to heal up around here?
One Pokemon Center noise later...
Thank you. ^^
Aaaaaand onward, past the little girls.
Oh, hey Cheren.
Eh, why not? I need to test out Po on some real opponents, anyway.
Go, Po! Use Metronome!
(For those of you who don't know, Explosion is basically the improved version of a move called Self-Destruct. Really, really powerful, but it takes out the user as well. Staravia and Po both went down here.)
Scamp's Bite doesn't do much damage to Roggenrola's tough hide...
Oh, hah hah Cheren.
Wait, you're actually serious? What battle are you watching?
Do I even need to say what effect a single Razor Shell had here?
I'm sure I don't need to tell you who won this battle, either.
That said, between his earlier comment about my moves and Snivy's performance during this fight, I'm starting to think that Cheren... isn't actually that good at Pokemon battles.
You remember how his Snivy has Contrary, which turns stat boosts into penalties, and stat penalties into boosts? Cheren had it use Growth during the battle, a move which normally raises its user's Attack and Special Attack by one stage. He... didn't seem to realize that Contrary caused his Snivy to get weaker from that, rather than stronger.
Panpour's a Water-type, and Askew knows Cut, which was made into a Grass-type move in this hack, so...
...I don't have the heart to tell him how badly he's doing.
I keep winning because you're blindly following random internet strategies without taking the time to understand what makes them work, Cheren. Think
about your strategies, rather than looking them up, for a change.
Seriously, Growth? On a Snivy with Contrary? That was just pitiful.
It's kind of an off day for me, actually. That Explosion really caught me by surprise.
...Was that a couple of Team Plasma goons just now?
Hmm? And now someone else is running up...
This may seem like a stupid question for Cheren to ask, but it actually makes some sense in context. Bianca's shoes are not
designed for running. Her Dad probably picked them out so she'd have trouble running away, come to think of it.
Combine that with how klutzy she can sometimes be, and running can be a bit of a dangerous prospect for her.
Sadly, it seems Cheren has no ability to read between the lines.
You should try and get some Running Shoes, Bianca. Not only do they let you catch crooks, but they're convenient for everyday use, as well.
Bianca kinda looks like she's about to cry herself.
...I should be surprised and annoyed by this, but I guess you always were terrible at talking to girls, Cheren.
I figured it out a while ago, Cheren. You really should try and work on your social skills.
Yeah, I know.
Actually, Cheren, to be honest, I'm not sure you've got what it takes to-
Ah, he ran off.
You can count on me, Bianca.
Because they're a bunch of meanie-pants, little girl. But don't worry, heroes of justice like me are around to stop them. ^^
Wait, what? But I thought you were going to... Like that time back at my house?
*sigh* Hang on, I'll be right back...
Well, at least you're being understanding about this. If our positions were switched, I'd have just headed in alone already.
Anyway, thanks to my bike, I make good time hiking it back to the daycare center. One quick use of their healing facilities later, and...
Huh. It's cold, dark, and wet in here. Kinda wishing I was wearing longer pants right now...
Gah! You don't have to shout, Cheren!
I'm right here, plus these caves echo.
Uh-huh. What else is new?
Oh, right. You've never dealt with these guys before.
Why would a Pokemon be happy about being 'used'? Aren't you guys supposed to be against stuff like that, anyway?
I see your buddies haven't told you about me.
It's another Poison-type Pokemon. I am beginning to sense a theme, here.
Not much of a match for Po, though that poison's going to hurt.
Numel is a Fire/Ground type, if memory serves. Even if it doesn't, it's at least a Fire-type, so Kenny shouldn't have any problems against this guy.
Thus proving my point.
Oh look, a Fire/Dark-type. Ho hum.
I've still got Water Gun, a Special move, so the Attack drop isn't much of a problem, but the enemy gets a lucky burn on me, thanks to Ember.
Really? I was expecting to win the instant you challenged me to a fight.
Well, have you considered the possibility that you might be in the wrong?
Seriously, you stole from a little kid. You aren't the good guys, here.
Alright, I'll handle that right awa-
Gah! My ears!
There were two more of you jerks back there?
No, I understand what you're doing. You're petty crooks who used your high ideals to justify stealing from a child, and then attempted to do the same to justify stealing from me and my friend here.
And we beat you down for your mistake. Now, hand over the Pokemon you stole.
Oh, you guys want a double battle, huh? Stand back, Cheren. I got this.
...Really? You're just now noticing?
Because it gives them an excuse, obviously. Bianca and I saw two of them outright abusing a wild Pokemon back in Striaton City.
I will admit, though, unlike those two, these guys actually seem to believe the mess they're trying to shovel down our throats...
I told you not to shout!
Eh, why not? Alright. You and me versus these two. Let's show these guys they shouldn't be messing with us.
Voltorb and a Zubat, huh? Cheren, you'd better not lead with Staravia, or else-
...That might happen. Okay, Po, let's take out that Voltorb!
Wait, they explode?! Ouch, and Po's almost out. Good thing Cheren's Roggenrola can do some real damage to the Zubat with its Rock-type moves.
I'll try sending in FireMonkey, next.
Carvanha?! Uh-oh, that's a Water-type!
Wait, but it isn't using any Water-type moves. Maybe it doesn't know any...
Lick's got a decent chance to cause Paralysis, but lack of power and no STAB bonus make it not the right move for FireMonkey.
Speed Boost?! Uh-oh. That means Carvanha's speed is going to up one stage at the end of each turn. Good thing this guy's almost down.
The next Pokemon out is Poochyena, huh? FireMonkey, hit them both with Incinerate!
See, Cheren? That's how you pick good moves.
Darn, another Water-type.
Well, that was pretty much expected. I'm starting to think I should switch out Pokemon a little more often...
Alright, Scamp, let's see what your Take-Down can do to that Tentacool.
Roggenrola hits Pawniard with Sand Attack. Sadly, thanks to Defiant, that Accuracy loss is countered by a two stage Attack boost. Getting hit by this thing is going to hurt.
Uh-oh. Switching out will now poison my Pokemon.
Okay, Scamp, let's take out that Pawniard!
Huh. Roggenrola's Rock Blast isn't a bad move... The thing's a tank when it comes to physical Defense, too.
Gee, I dunno, are you out of Pokemon? Herdier, the Loyal Dog PokemonIt loyally follows its Trainer's orders. For ages, they have helped Trainers raise Pokémon. It has black, cape-like fur that is very hard and decreases the amount of damage it receives.
Having evolved, Scamp's Pickup ability has, sadly, been replaced by Scrappy. It's not a bad ability to have, admittedly, allowing the user to hit Ghost-type Pokemon with Normal- and Fighting-type moves, but it no longer gets me free items...
Ah, but who is going to liberate your Pokemon from you? Because trust me, you guys are pretty foolish.
Theft is a crime for a reason, though I can imagine a few possible circumstances for committing it.
If you break the law, you have to be prepared for the consequences of doing so, though, and these guys clearly aren't.
...No, Cheren, that's not how you win a debate.
You say this Pokemon is suffering under that little girl's attempts to care for it? Prove it. Bring me documented evidence showing exactly how and when it has been made to suffer.
Yeah, that's what I thought. You guys make me sick. Get out of my sight.
Yes, Cheren, I was there for Pokemon Appreciation Day in pre-school, as well.
...You haven't been paying attention, have you?
Here. Just take this and go.
Guess I better take my leave, too. Ah, and beating Cheren and those Plasma Grunts did leave me with a nice amount of cash in my pocket. Alright, off to buy more Great Balls!
Hmm? Bianca and the little girl?
Aww, it was nothing.
Whoa. Thank you very much, I'll definitely make good use of this.
For those of you who don't own Black or White, you don't actually get any sort of fishing rod in this game normally until you beat the Elite Four. No Old Rod, no Great Rod, you just have to wait through most of the game and get this game's equivalent to the Super Rod in the epilogue.
That makes this quite the useful and touching gift.
You can't fish in Gym statues any longer, though.
Goodbye, you two. Take care.
Okay, back to the Striaton Pokemon Center, get healed up, and...
Ahhh, that's the stuff.
