With this, our journey approaches its end. In this chapter, I complete the game's main story and claim the eighth BUDGE for myself.
Little did I know, things would only get harder from there
[spoiler=STOP BEING SUCH A BABY ALG]
They must mean me, by virtue of being the player character
It is my destiny to marry the water army.
There's absolutely no chance of this showing up later.
Their jobs are kind of redundant, what with these MONSTERS being gods and all.
Anyway, here they are.
A'EN, THE WATER ARMY. The creature on the game's box art!
Or is it Don...?
Anyway, I'll just use Delan to status it so that I can GRASP it more effectively and
Damn it Delan, you've failed me for the last time!
In the end... I got kind of lucky.
Another creature that most definitely will not appear again.
Another "translation wanted" sentence.
Anyway, that story arc is done, it's time to move on to the BUDGEs again!
Okay, now we're in business.
I'm sure it's not as hard as it sounds!
Well, maybe the MONATERS will be somewhat easy!
THAT IS NOT WHAT PEACE LOOKS LIKE!
Okay, chance of plans. Time to grind the hell out of my team until this stops being a death trap.
[five hours later]
Okay, now I've got it. I have a secret weapon that will win the war for us. I am become death, destroyer of- ah, screw it.
The secret weapon is that we're all JEDI.
Aww. I wanted one. Dragons are cute.
Anyway, here we are. The GYM CURATOR. The woman who makes Nuzlockers cry. It's a good thing I don't have a fetish for blue-haired warrior women or this would be awkward.
Note: this is a better title than Elite Four.
Nintendo of Japan and bootleggers: 1
Nintendo of America: 0
She's actually much more polite than in canon. I like this.
And the hero killer. BUT WAIT, remember that secret weapon I mentioned?
[spoiler=THE SECRET WEAPON]
Now we are all sons of [bleep]es.
Yay, eight budges! I can finally-
I take it back. can't get the budge until after I go through some gauntlet or another in a cave behind the gymnasium.
Luckily, I have an HM that will take me back there.
[spoiler=NEXT TIME... ON POKEMON VIETNAMESE CRYSTAL]
I go into a cave
