Poor Knowledge of Japanese is no Isshu for Me
Those of you who followed the Recent Happening Threads of HGSS will know how I do my recent happenings. Generally I break them all up by gym battles.
Finally I got my copy in, but as I said earlier, play-asia.com sent me Pokemon Black not White, which means no Wargle unless I can get one from GTS. I started playing anyway. I chose Mijumaru as my starter, and I named him MARU. I defeated Belle and Cheren easily and did some more stuff before Prof. Araragi took us out to show us how to catch Pokemon. She gave us some Pokeballs.
I went out to Rt 1, and I caught a Yooterii and a Choroneko. Then I ventured into the first new town (I’m terrible with these town names…even in English!). After a quick look around, and the Team Plasma stuff, I left that town and went north to Rt 2.
Yooterii was leveling up quite nicely, as opposed to Choroneko. Oh well. Next I enter the first gym town. Again, once I got control of my character and searched the town a bit, ignoring the gym, I went east to that abandoned building because I recall hearing you can get one of the monkey trio there, even before the gym battle. So because I chose Mijumaru, my monkey gift was Boappu. I went back to Rt 2 to do some levelling, which I’m already hating due to the new exp system (see – I like to have my battles like the anime, 3v3/2v2/etc).
So by time I decided to battle the gym, my two highest were Boappu and MARU. The battle begins:
MARU vs Yooterii
Boappu vs Yanappu
WIN! After I left either someone told me they lost their Munna, or I’m supposed to know to go east of town. Anyway, I went back to that abandoned building, and I found a Munna. Team Plasma battled me, and I have to say, they have the coolest logo of any organization! So they took off after being defeated. I went back to town with someone Mokomo or something, and I get a C Gear. BTW, is there an advantage to keeping it running constantly? I turned it off because I thought it was draining my battery. Ok, so now I go west of town then north to Rt 3.
There I found the day care and a school. I fought all the trainers along the way until I got to a fork. Belle and Cheren stop me, and make me continue going west to a cave. Fought Team Plasma again. I also captured a Dangoro, which I brought to the day care. I discovered I can only leave one Pokemon there, but I think the man said I need 4 badges (perhaps?) in order to keep 2 there…just an idea.
So I went back to that fork. Cheren went south, and Belle went east with the little person she was with. I captured a couple Tabunne; one which I will keep, and the other I want to trade for a Washibon (HINT HINT).
I got to another town that has railroad tracks along the south. Healed up and explored the surrounding areas some more.
This is pretty much all I’ve done in the first 2 days. My team’s levels:
MARU – 14
Yooterii – 13
Choroneko – 13
Boappu – 14
Shimama – 13
Mamepato – 10
Goals: Learn these damn city names! Explore the current town I’m in. Is there a gym to fight here? Maybe arrange a trade for a Washibon or something.
