I download the ROM, start the game up, and am treated to an interesting cutscene prominently showing some Pokemon's ass, plus a bunch of Unown.
New game, boy, 11:20 PM. Cutscene with Oak and Wooper. That thing looks so dumb. Plus, it's immune to electric, so the first time I tried to attack it in Gold with my Mareep, I was like, "WTF is this shit?". Continuing the cunscene, I name myself Fagbalz because that name is awesome. Walked out of my house, grabbing the Poke Gear, and headed over
And so, the journey of Fagbalz continues. Armed with Pokeballs, I begin looking around for Pokemon, mostly for Pokedex data. My first encounter is a Hoothoot. Tempting flyer, but I much prefer Spearow early in the game since it knows a flying move (Peck). This Hoothoot is too weak to stand up to much of a beating:
Next up is... the exact same Hoothoot. The fight went even faster this time:
Tackle *crit* OHKO
I think at this point I'm going to devise a system for battle lay
