    EDIT: One could argue that this wasn't in by the end of the week, but just live with it. You get Pokemon, be happy.

    Yay, it's back! The story continues!

    Letís try this out. Marvin, smash that boulder.





    You must have a very effective means of determining the use of actions, because I cannot see any reason for this.





    Wait, what?



    I thought you wanted an interview?



    Ah, well. Get Ďem, guys!



    Nice! Get the other one, Marvin!





    Told you that was a good idea!







    Nameís Michael. And you are?

    Gabby, and this is Ty.







    Sure, why not?







    Well, I think that thereís something that drives people to battle Pokemon. Some sort of



    That makes trainers who they are. So, I suppose battling you makes me feelÖ right. Like things are as they should be.









    See ya round!



    Iíd love to.



    And thatís that.













    There are two ways I could take that, and Iím going to assume you mean entergetic.



    Gah! Frikiní sandstorm popped outta nowhere! There was no wayI was making headway through that. So, we turned back and searched for an alternate path.



    Initiating rules of irony.



    You will not find my things!





    Youíre enough trouble without frolicking in the mud.



    Told you so.



    OokayÖ



    Iiiíd rather not.



    THEN FIGHT!

    Sheesh!











    And the rules of irony dictate that you will collapse when I beat you.





    Close enough.







    Okay, letís see whatís up with this.



    Letís do it!





    It was Magma again. This time, they were blocking access to the cable car *sigh* You morons again?







    Well, Iím not getting anywhere that way. Letís try this out.



    Wow, itís hot in here.



    Hey, there! Whatís your name?

    I am Ember, and I shall be the greatest fire Pokemon ever!



    My, my wonderful dreamÖ

    LIDDAAA!

    *sob* Iím sorry! Iím sorryÖ *sob*



    And who are you?

    I am Victoria, daughter of the great battle mount Victor, in whose steps I follow!

    SoÖ you want to be mounted by big sweaty men.

    Azgard, shut up before I duct tape your mouth. Victoria, would you like to join our little band?

    That would be great!



    Welcome to the team, then. Numel the battle mount Pokemon. Numel live in the shadow of their warrior parents, hoping to become like them.



    FIRE BAD!



    You asked for it.



    Why? Just, why? At least try, man!





    Youíre talking to me like you know me. Have I thrashed you before?



    Theyíre not actors. Theyíre the real thing.



    You mean fight, right?



    How is that thing still standing?



    Told you so.



    We made our way to Route 113, where we were greeted with a scene the likes of which Iíd never even heard of. It would have looked like any other route in the world, except for the layer of ash that clung like snow to the ground, as gray flakes lazily tumbled out of the sky.

    Yeesh, look at this place. Itís freaking buried in ash.

    Sneak peek at the end of the world, huh?

    Maybe just.



    Man, thatís something. Everything but your footsteps covered in soot. Itís just soÖ desolate.

    First off: dammit, Lidda, why'd you kill the recruit?! I actually put my finger on the buttong, thought "As long as she doesn't crit..." and pressed it. There are times when there is no barrier between my mind and Michael's mouth. Eh, at least we got the Numel. In other news, the Route 113 music is awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5D8T9pB284

    Also: Carol likes to sing: Joke or coincidence of translation?


    Also, I need a grinding level for Flannery. She has:

    Two Lv.26 Slugma and a Lv. 28 Torkoal

    If I don't get suggestions, I will default to the level of the opponent's highest level Pokemon, in this case 28.

    Well, since we never got any of the Poocheyna pups in the game, we have yet to establish that they exist in the same multiverse.

    I think the best way to describe Azgard at this point would be a CoD player, minus the ****** jokes and random f-bombs. We'll see what happens with him.

    And, yeah, Maxie slipped my mind there. Lemme look that up.

    I won't name anyone since I suck at doing that; but I have some ideas for personalities.

    Zangoose: Regardless of gender it is in love with a Seviper they can breed IG!); but has to keep his love secret due the racial hatred between the species.
    Electrike/Manectric: Has been just expelled from the pack, depresed because of that challenges Michael looking for a Warrior's death and it is incredibly furious when he/she is captured.

    Control, this is Recon Theta-One. Movement detected. Trainer and six Pokemon. Maneuvering close for initial assessment. Over.

    Alright, Petey, letís get this one!

    Gahít iht, Chief!



    Firing homing projectiles.

    Skarmory the spy Pokemon. Skarmory seem to be reconnaissance units for a group scouting out trainers of some form of value.



    Fallabor Town. Iíll never forget that place. Out of all the places I visited on that trip, it sticks out as one of the most prominent. Not because of what it was or what happened there, but simply that it was there. It stood in the shadow of a volcano, the buildings built upon volcanic soil, and everyone knowing full well that all it took for their world to come to a fiery end was Mother Nature waking up on the wrong side of the bed. And yet, in the face of this, the people continued on, going about their daily lives with smiles on their faces. They werenít convicts or exiles, they were people who had willingly chosen to live there, and enjoyed it despite, or maybe because of, the ever-present reminder of their frailty as humans.



    Okay, Lidda, I canít deal with you anymore right now. Youíre on time out now, weíll talk about your ďfindingĒ and killing recruits later.

    Wait, no, please! Please donít put me in the-

    Letís see, who to bring out. Eh, how about Victoria? We could use a fire type.

    Pokemon withdraw successful.

    Thank you, Captain! Are you going to be training me in the arts of battle?

    Something like that.

    Uhh, Chief?

    Yeah, Petey?

    Yer not gunna box anee of us, are ya?

    I could tell that she was worried. She was thinking ĎWhat would it take for him to box me?í Lidda had been part of the team for even longer than Petey, and it must have shaken her up to see me box her like that. Donít worry, Petey. Iím not about to box anyone. I care about you. All of you. Even Lidda, Iím just giving her a time out. You guys drive me crazy sometimes, but in the end, Iíve never had friends like you guys.



    Ďanks, Chief.



    At means so much ta me.



    Yew need me, an ahíll be thar fer ya.



    Always.



    Thatís very touching and all, but you might notice that we wandered into the tall grass?

    I smiled and shook my head. It had taken forever, but I could finally take Azgardís crap in stride.



    Okay.





    And done.



    What do you want?

    Jeez, man! Whatís up with you?

    Nothing. Get outta here.

    Well, sorry, I canít do that without catching you first.



    Iím warning you, get outta here!

    Sorry, no.

    Then you shall meet your end by the hand of Romeo of the house of-



    Yeah, sure. Zangoose the hostile Pokemon. For some reason, Zangoose are very cranky when met by trainers.



    Sure, why not.



    Wow, that is something.

    Ehtís beutufhul!

    BurnÖ

    I mean itís amazing!



    I know, itís just beautiful, isnít it?

    Who are you?

    My name is Illumination, and I am here to light up your life!



    Then why wouldnít you stay in the damn ball?

    Not in that way!



    Whatever, screw you.



    Ah, hell. Magma again.





    Do tell, what form of insanity are you up to today?










    Youíre not getting away that easy!

    Three guys in blue. My first thought was that they were Southside to Magmaís North. I wasnít far off.





    You donít stand a chance.









    If Iím really honest, I think my biggest advantage over Magma was that they usually felt the need to battle me before Iíd get out of their way. If they decided instead to just bum rush me, then they had a bit more success.



    Nameís Michael. And if youíre another crime gang, I guess Iím going to end up trashing you guys as well.





    And why would that be?





    So, youíre a vigilante group, and not a gang?

    Yes. We were founded for the sole purpose of defeating Team Magma, and ending their schemes before they destroy the region.









    Oh, donít worry, Iíve always got my eye out for them.













    And you believed them?



    *sigh*







    Guess we might as well find out.



    Well, look whoís not guarding the cable car anymore.



    Sure, why not?

    Because youíre going to get us all killed up there.


    Oh, come on, nobodyís going to die.



    Out the front door, and the first thing I saw was a pair of Poocheyna tearing into each other as a Magma and Aqua grunt yelled at them. It sounded like a fight to the death.



    But the fight that really sticks in my mind was the one Archie was in. Somehow, his Pokemon was holding its own despite being outnumbered three to one.










    Wait, what?!



    Iíll hold these ones off, but I canít get past them! Get Maxie while I keep them busy!



    Hey, Maxie! Remember me? Iím here to kick your ass!











    After killing everything on the land it covers. You didnít think this through, did you?







    Then maybe you should, I dunno, not cover it in lava?









    *sigh* Why do I waste my breath trying to talk to idiots like you?





    Come and get me!



    Your petty insults cannot provoke me. I shall simply defeat you and move along with my plan.



    You know the drill, Petey, Water Gun!



    The Mightyena struggled, kicking sand about and desperately gnawing at Petey, but in the end, the barrage of water knocked it to the ground, unconscious.



    And again!





    Yep, we got this, Petey.



    FIRE BAD! FIRE BAD!

    What?!



    And trashed.









    Remind me to quote you on that next time I stomp you.



    Archieís leg was wrapped in a bloodstained bandage, and he was limping. But on the other hand, that was probably better than could be said of his Pokemon.









    Weíll see.



    Better not leave this lying around, though.

    Well, get two and loose one to RNG crap. At least the fight with Maxie went that well. I didn't show it, but that Golbat wouldn't die, with us both using 2 Super Potions there. Anyway, with our end-of-the-world (in more way than one) update over, it's time to go for the next badge!


    So, who should I bring for Flannery? She has:

    A grinding level of 28 has been suggested, although that's what I would have defaulted to anyway. Any objections?

    It worked!



    Dude, thatís frikiní awesome!



    Thanks for the tip, that was great!



    Lavaridge was awfully small for a gym town, smaller even than Dewford. But at the same time, it felt busier. I canít quite put my finger on it, but it just felt like there was more bustle there.



    Alright, Lidda, welcome back. Please stop stealing every shiny thing you see.

    She scampered up to me and hugged my leg Iím sorry, Iím so sorry! Please donít put me back in the box!

    I patted her head Itís okay, Lidda. I forgive you.





    Letís check it out, guys.



    Wow, thatís warm. Feels good, donít it, guys?

    Okay, Iíll admit it. You know how to pick a good vacation spot.

    That I do.

    That is, if you like trading bikini girls for saggy bags of-*mff*

    You are not going to finish that sentence.















    Wow, um, yeah, thanks.





    HmmÖ

    That sounds like something badís coming my way.

    What, me? Do something bad to you?





    Sounds perfect.



    You actually bought that crap?

    Next time I put my hand over your mouth, Iím going to have this in my palm.





    Alright, guys, letís get some more training in before we hit this.

    Sure. Not like I have any use for it. Dang heavy, too.







    Return, huh? Fitting, I guess.









    Nice work, Lidda. Take a breather.

    No box?

    *sigh* Lidda, no box.



    Nice work, Victoria!

    I am growing closer to the power of my father!



    I must be focused on my goal above all else!



    Victoria, youíre doing great! Just a little more!



    Nice effort, Victoria. Youíre done.



    Nice, Marvin!

    In video games, they call it grinding. Endlessly beating up random opponents for experience points. The funny thing is, every now and then, something truly unexpected happens.

    Hi, Iím Lounge! Iím limited edition! Thereís only 500 like me in the world!



    And that means youíre coming with me. Spinda the teddy bear Pokemon. Spinda come in standard and limited edition varieties.



    And with that, I think weíre ready!



    Petey, itís going to be all you today. You ready for this?

    Ahím reddy, Chief!



    Letís roll.



    Damn, I canít see anything in here.



    *Thunk* Ow! What the- is that the wall? Thereís gotta be more to this gym.



    Huh? Whatís that?



    Gah!



    Where the hell did you come from?!



    Surprise!



    FIRE BAD FIRE BAD!

    Douse Ďem good, Petey. Just donít kill Ďem.



    FIRE BAD!



    You sure thatís sweat?

    FIRE BAD!

    Petey, stop with the Water Gun for a second!

    FIRE Ba- ah, sarry, Chief.



    Huh, nobodyís jumping out of this oneÖ



    Woah!



    Gah! Oh, my ankle! I was not prepared for that! Agh! What the hell kind of a gym is this?!



    Another one, huh? Well, looks like the only way out.



    Aaaagh!



    Gah! I hate this gym!



    Aw, crap.



    Oh, sh-



    Thatís not a fire type.



    Ow! Arceus damn the architect who designed this place!



    Not againÖ



    Donít you dare talk to me about stress!



    FIRE BAD!



    Petey, give him a bath!



    Wait, thereís no way upÖ



    Aw, dammit.



    So hopefully that means this one goes on.



    Yep.



    What is with you people?!





    Petey, douse him.



    Will this place never end?!



    Oh.



    Once again cracking my neck, I got a series of small cracks and one big pop. I fished through my pockets and grabbed my Pokenav, plugging in my headphones as I went.

















    Ah, damn it, I had this all planned out, but it had to be you to walk through the door!

    I see Iím making an impression among the gym leaders.

    Oh, make no mistake; there is something very special about you. But weíre not here to ponder your destiny.

    Weíre here to bring it one step closer.



    We shall see.

    ~Love is a burniní thing




    Go, Flamer

    ~And it makes a fiery ring



    Petey, do this!

    ~Bound by wild desire



    Water Gun!

    ~I fell into a ring of fire

    ~I fell into a burniní ring of fire



    Use Smog!

    ~I went down, down, down




    ~And the flames went up higher



    Ha, that was nothing! Water Gun again!

    ~And it burns, burns, burns



    Arceus, dammit, is there one gym leader who doesnít have a lifetime supply of potions?

    ~The ring of fire, the ring of fire



    FIRE BAD FIRE BAD!

    ~The taste of love is sweet



    FIRE BAD!

    ~When hearts like ours meet



    Thatís better.

    ~I fell for you like a child



    ~Oh, but the fire went wild



    Torch, go!

    ~I fell into a burniní ring of fire



    FIRE BAD!

    ~I went down, down, down



    Ha!

    ~And the flames went up higher



    Alright, Coal, itís up to you!

    ~And it burns, burns, burns




    FIRE BAD FIRE BAD!

    ~The ring of fire, the ring of fire



    ~I fell into a burniní ring of fire



    Agh!

    Oh, crap!

    ~I went down, down, down



    Well, Arceus dammit!

    ~And the flames went up higher



    Gah!

    ~And it burns, burns, burns



    Thatís not good.

    ~The ring of fire, the ring of fire.



    Alright, Petey!

    ~And it burns, burns, burns



    Finish it fast, Petey!

    ~The ring of fire



    Oh, sh-

    ~The ring of fire



    PETEY!

    FIRE BA-



    I donít remember much of what happened right after that. I remember the taste of salt in my mouth, the feel of charred feathers in my hands and against my face. I remember that I said something, probably begging Petey not to die.



    And I remember seeing Lidda tearing the Torkalís artery out. Honestly, I donít remember if I ordered her to attack or not. I donít even remember staying to collect the badge, but I must have, because it was on the inside of my vest the next morning.

    And this is why you choose Mudkip as your starter (Taste double resistance bitch!)

    But did you run out of healing potions or something? I mean counting STAB and resistance Overheat is still stronger then Bodyslam. Why would you think 23 hp would cut it?

    Beccause I wasn't expecting the Overheat in the first place. Guess I got just a little bit cocky.

    That also means it's time to vote for the new team member. I'll leave you guys to that.
