So, here we are. The first glimpse into this adventure, the player character, named Vulture because I'm unimaginative.
As with many great heroes, Vulture begins his adventure in the back of a moving lorry, with no seatbelt, and only an Azurill doll for company.
Ah, Azurill doll, you've always understood me.
We don't get to spend any more quality time with the doll, however, as we arrive in Littleroot! Our mother, represented here as a very thin ice cream, greets us.
Turns out a group of Machoke have already moved most of our stuff in, which must all have been on the other moving van.
Unless the Machoke are just that fast. Who knows?
We receive our first quest, to go upstairs and set our clock.
In doing so, we come across another great pal of ours, Snorlax Doll!
Him and Azurill doll don't get along, though. Best to keep them apart.
We do a few orientation-y things around the house, before our mother tells us to get out less than a minute after we've moved in to meet our one neighbour.
Sure, we can do that. The artstyle makes it difficult to tell, but apparently it's transitioned from morning to the middle of the night in the short time between us getting off the moving truck, setting the clock, and then leaving the house.
We meet our neighbour, May, who I thought was wearing bunny ears at first glance.
Suddenly, as we immediately leave our new friend alone, we hear a scream for help, which a nearby NPC helpfully tells us is a scream for help!
Looks like Professor Birch! And... some sort of foul hellbeast from the netherrealms, according to my terrible drawing.
Maybe fortunately, we're the protagonist, and as such are honour-bound to save the Prof from this.
We open the Prof's briefcase to see if anything in there can help banish a demon, only to find...
I eventually decided on Mudkip, mostly because it was the most fun to draw. The random noun generator gives us Baritone.
New Pokemon! Baritone the Mudkip
We're now fully equipped to take on the foul menace known only as Poochyena!
...who still has red eyes because I just copy-pasted the drawing from before
Baritone opens with a Water Gun, which I stylised as bubbles because it looked better.
The Poochyena follows up with a Tackle attack, taking a whopping 3 health off Baritone.
This goes back and forth a couple of times, until the Poochyena/demon is defeated!
Ah hell, a contrived plot excuse for this challenge.
And there we go! Update #2 shouldn't be too long, so hopefully you enjoy this!
@Typhlosion: Well, here's an update for you now!
@Solar: I aim to please.
@Bolin: We here at Vulture Co. hope to increase your giggle counter to at least 6 by the end of this adventure.
@Kat: And there's still a few months to go yet!
@Type_Null: Hooray, agreement!
@InfinityLight: We ain't at Update 42 just yet. Assuming we even make it that far, of course...
When we last left off, we'd just saved Professor Birch from a ravening Poochyena, hell-bent on devouring his flesh. In thanks, he lets us keep Baritone, which is good because I wasn't giving him back.
NEW POKEMON- BARITONE THE MUDKIP [FOR REAL THIS TIME]
He then sends us to go and meet up with May, over on Route 103.
Sure, we can do that. Remember, encounters we find before getting Poke Balls don't count...
...which is probably for the best tbh
Fighting through the hordes of Level 2's, we arrive in Oldale Town!
Where we are immediately accosted by a total stranger!
Wow, thanks! I'm sure this is totally fine!
spoilers: it is
Alright, guess we need to go this way. Some footprints on the ground there, that must mean something!
oh jeez where did he come from
who is he
Moving swiftly on, I decide to do a little grinding before meeting May. Baritone is now a big boy.
Oh hey, there's May! Looks like she's doing some surveying.
Surveying is boring though. To battle!
This goes exactly how you'd expect it to, until eventually...
Baritone wins! And levels up, too!
Baritone learned Mud-Slap!
As a reward for defeating her in the field of combat, May instantly teleports us to Prof Birch's lab, where he gives us a Pokedex!
GREETINGS HUMAN Nope, not Gen 7 yet, no AI jokes this time. SHOOT
More importantly, we finally get some Poke Balls! Let's go put them to use!
First off, we find a Zigzagoon, who the random noun generator dubs REPUBLIC.
NEW POKEMON- REPUBLIC THE ZIGZAGOON
Moving to Route 103, we find ourselves a Wingull, who breaks two balls before being captured on the third. What a jerk.
NEW POKEMON- YOGA THE WINGULL
OK, the crazy footprint guy's gone now, so we can enter Route 102 at last.
In the grass, we find...
A Ralts! Very nice!
But wait, I can't even weaken it! It'll just Teleport away if I try...
Just gotta throw the Ball and hope, I guess.
yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaahhhhh boooooooiiiiiii got maself a ralts
NEW POKEMON- SOY THE RALTS
Plus, we can even go and heal the Ralts instantly, using our brand new Teleport!
You know, I really ought to look these things up beforehand.
I guess we have to walk then, like some sort of non-Teleporting peasant. At least Republic found us a Potion.
Republic and Soy proceed to decimate the rest of the route, learning some new moves in the process!
@Typhlosion: Ah yes, all those variations of '0_0'.
@Kat: Yeah, Beautifly can really run Rings around you if you're not careful.
@Brett: GLORY TO THE PRZ
@Pendra: Turns out this is a niche people wanted filling. Who knew? I sure didn't!
Welcome back to Vulture Can't Draw! Today, we're starting things off with our Route 104 catch, Cracker the Taillow!
NEW POKEMON- CRACKER THE TAILLOW
Also on Route 104, we meet this Rich Kid, who's so rich he can use a Full Richstore on his Richzagoon.
Man, that guy's so rich.
Let's see what our encounter for Petalburg Forest is, shall we?
oh my gosh adorable grumpy boi yeeeessss NEW POKEMON-GRUMPY BOI CAPTION THE SHROOMISH
Having captured Caption, we head deeper into the forest, and find a scientist with whom we immediately bond over our shared love of grumpy mushroom bois.
Suddenly, a land pirate accosts us, demanding the scientist's research!
Hang on, isn't being a pirate inherently tied to being on water? Surely a land pirate would just be a bandit?
Enraged by our semantics, the bandit attacks!
This goes about as well as you'd expect for the bandit-Baritone easily defeats his one (1) Poochyena.
See, a real pirate would have a Water type! Bandit, bandit all the way.
In gratitude for saving his research, Johnny Not-Bravo here gives us an XP Share!
yep we'll totally look after it ahaha yeah i'm going now goodbye for ever
Having travelled from Route 104 all the way through the forest, we arrive onto... Route 104!
At least we have a full team now.
Route 104 2.0 also has a Berry shop. We get a Wailmer Pail to water all the Berries we'll never plant!
OK, we're done here.
Continuing on, we encounter our first Double Battle! Soy and Caption clean up.
They clean up so well, in fact, that they both level up and learn a new move!
We arrive in Rustboro, an actual city unlike Petalburg.
A businessman is giving away False Swipe TM's as part of a special promotion! Naturally, we swipe one for real.
We also find a couple more items around the city- the amazing Quick Claw, and the marginally less amazing HM Cut.
Heading into the gym, we meet the Leader, Roxanne! She says that she's excited for our challenge.
Yeah, in a bit, Roxy. For now, we have our Route 116 and Rusturf Tunnel catches to make!
A Nincada! Now, let's see what the random noun generator gives us...
I knew something like this was going to happen soon.
NEW POKEMON- SQUEEGEE THE NINCADA
We dump Yoga in the PC in favour of Squeegee and type variety.
Moving on to Rusturf Tunnel, we completely unexpectedly find a Whismur! The randon noun generator gives us a far more sensible name this time, PEACH.
Brr, that's a mental image I'm never unseeing.
NEW POKEMON-PEACH THE WHISMUR
Actually, the Whismur here give pretty decent XP. Grinding time!
Jeesh, they certainly hit hard though. Better be more careful from now on.
i was so hyped to finally use a taillow
R.I.P CRACKER THE TAILLOW PART 3- PART 3
Well, that was demoralising. We still need to grind, though, so we pick up Peach and get to work!
insert rocky music here
The team gain lots of levels, and learn some new moves in the process!
OK, I'd say we're just about ready. Baritone's leading, with Caption on standby if things go hairy. To battle!
Feel free to add your own epic battle music here, by the way. I'm not linking any because I'm lazy.
Starting things off, Roxanne sends out her Geodude!
Baritone is faster, though, and hits it with a Water Gun! no Thanks to Sturdy, though, the Geodude hangs on with 1 HP!
The 'dude uses Rock Tomb, lowering Baritone's Speed!
Turn 2! Roxy goes for the heal...
But it doesn't go to full!
This does not end well for the Geodude.
Next up, Nosepass!
The Nosepass does not last long.
And that's the win! Roxanne gives us the Stone Badge and the TM for Rock Tomb to commemorate our victory!
BADGE 1/8- STONE BADGE
See you all for Part #4!
Baritone- Mudkip- Level 15
Tackle/ Foresight/ Water Gun/ Mud-Slap Caption- Shroomish- Level 14
Rip Cracker ;-; That crit looked a lot like Retaliate's animation. As for the gym, I never expected the result, and I doubt I can predict the result of the second at this stage. (Here's hoping we don't see another crit killing Soy :/)
