Not much to say. This is it.

 

[spoiler=FOUR EMPERORS]

dM6xsoF.png

This is what my team looks like now. It's not good enough, so I spent about an hour grinding.

And more than a few mons needed ENVOLVING

This item was incredibly useful, because have you ever tried to train a Dratini in a cave filled with selfdestructing GELU and confuse ray-ing GELU? It's terrible.

I saw this screen so many times that it made my eyes bleed.

OZLGU8T.png

They started mocking me for it!

wYjus4P.png

Even the old man got in on it!

 

So I quit. So I made a tactical retreat to resupply

And managed to summon an eldritch abomination in the process.

After much shipping, I was ready

HUDE, whose arms are literal twigs, collected a vast array of swiss army punches.

 

And then I finished grinding.

December 26th: ELF PRACTISE DAY. Because as an American, I am legally required to not acknowledge Boxing Day.

Bold words, from a sound effect.

 

Spoilers he lost

But that speech was enough to give me an immense amount of respect for the guy. I mean, seriously, that dwarfs every boss monologue in JRPG history. swoon

 

Anyway, on to the next one.

Meanwhile, Koga here seems to be playing Menacing Words Mad Libstm

ab·struse

[ab-stroos]

adjective

1.

hard to understand; recondite; esoteric: abstruse theories.

2.

Obsolete . secret; hidden.

Nice.

 

ZXMvYxa.png

Neither Erika not I could figure out what was going on here.

CMIcXzG.png

But I decided that type advantages were overrated and did this.

tCBjvwP.png

Okay.

 

The next guy is another meditate-in-a-room-fulla-lava [wagon].

IWMbCst.png

Who has apparently strengthened his body to the point where he can ignore convection. This, my friends, is what badassery looks like.

FeuPXa7.png

This guy's been in the FOUR EMPERORS since the beginning.

vUBIbOV.png

Of course, HUDE trivialized it.

kS9t8tu.png

Well... Shit. Sorry guys, run's over, I lost.

 

By which I mean ANOTHER

She's a bit nuts, you see...

And after that battle, things got... Metaphysical.

There we go. FOUR EMPERORS. On to the CHAMPION. My goal since September.

Grappling! A wholesome activity for any cape-wearing adult and 11-year old girl to participate in alone!

 

...I'm going straight to hell for that one.

Cue JRPG boss music.

His body is ready

 

NPaMhBa.png

But of course, I have this, so the worst outcome is mutually assured destruction. I'm willing to count that as a technical win.

Eventually, he released every Smogoner's least favorite mon.

 

And then I won.

And I will let our friend DU speak the closing words.

[spoiler=Behind the Scenes!]

[9:18:29 PM] Erika: Shut up.

[9:18:35 PM] Erika: Don't forget VCrystal

[9:18:54 PM] Alg: Oh

[9:18:55 PM] Alg: Right

[9:20:04 PM] Alg: COMMENCE GRINDING

[9:27:47 PM] Alg: ENVOLVE BOLIU

[9:27:51 PM] Alg: (Dragonair)

[9:29:14 PM] Erika: What

[9:29:36 PM] Erika: So what's your team now?

[9:29:56 PM] *** Alg sent 01.PNG 01.PNG ***

[9:30:28 PM] Erika: What's HUDE?

[9:30:37 PM] Alg: Alakazam

[9:30:44 PM] Erika: DRAGO?

[9:30:51 PM | Edited 9:30:52 PM] Alg: Dratini (former)

[9:30:57 PM] Alg: This was pre-grinding

[9:31:16 PM] Erika: So your team's Meganium, Alakazam, Umbreon, Gyarados, Dragonair, and Graveler?

[9:31:24 PM] Alg: Yep

[9:31:47 PM] Erika: Why don't you evolve the Graveler?

[9:31:58 PM] Alg: One level or so to go

[9:32:21 PM] Erika: Waiting on a certain move?

[9:32:37 PM] Alg: Nope, actual evolution time

[9:32:45 PM] Erika: Oh

[9:33:39 PM] Alg: He picks up Earthquake at 41 in both forms

[9:33:47 PM] Erika: OIC

[9:34:11 PM] Alg: And I missed the ENVOLVE screenshot

[9:34:34 PM] Erika: What did he evolve into?

[9:34:43 PM] Alg: NELUO

[9:34:58 PM] Erika: How... I'm not even gonna ask

[9:36:03 PM] Alg: Grinding in here is awful

[9:36:16 PM] Erika: Tell me 'bout it

[9:36:35 PM] Erika: There's a reason I gave up at Pryce and Clair in my normal runs

[9:50:16 PM] Alg: Alright, team's minimum level is 40

[9:50:33 PM] Erika: Could use more

[9:50:45 PM] Erika: Wait, what level is Lance's ace?

[9:50:52 PM] Alg: 50

[9:51:00 PM] Alg: But I have LAPU and H-BOMB

[9:51:06 PM] Erika: Oh

[9:52:28 PM] Alg: THough it's going a lot faster now that I'm not strapping someone to an exp share, so I may do a bit more

[9:52:47 PM] Erika: K. I'll be here to keep you from dying of boredom

[9:53:07 PM] Alg: I should find grinding music

[9:53:35 PM | Edited 9:53:42 PM] Erika:

[9:53:58 PM] Erika: Kind of have that one bookmarked, so...

[9:54:04 PM] Alg: Heh

[9:54:12 PM] Erika: Enjoy!

[10:00:05 PM] Alg: HUDE's moves: COOLHIT, LIGHTHIT, FIREHIT, DIG

[10:00:29 PM] Erika: I'm guessing the punches and Psychic?

[10:00:34 PM] Alg: Right

[10:00:52 PM] Erika: Still not sure how they got DIG from Psychic

[10:02:22 PM] Alg: Levels now range from 40-45. Acceptable?

[10:02:29 PM] Erika: Your choice

[10:02:37 PM] Erika: Just hope you know what you're doing

[10:10:56 PM] Alg: Alright, ready

[10:11:08 PM] Erika: *waits*

[10:11:33 PM] Alg: To start the E4, I mean

[10:11:41 PM] Erika: Oh

[10:12:09 PM] Alg: ...Okay, selling a certain item crashes the game'

[10:12:12 PM | Edited 10:12:14 PM] Alg: Fascinating!

[10:12:22 PM] Erika: Did you have a backup?

[10:12:25 PM] Erika: And what item?

[10:13:10 PM] Alg: CHO DRUG/Full Restore

[10:13:25 PM] Erika: Selling it crashes the game??

[10:13:33 PM] Alg: ...Wait a minute, they sell for higher than the buy price. NICE

[10:13:47 PM] Erika: But selling them crashes the game

[10:14:26 PM] Alg: Oh, I was wrong

[10:14:43 PM] Erika: OFC

[10:14:59 PM] Erika: ボンクラ

[10:15:08 PM] Alg: ?

[10:15:21 PM] Erika: I ain't telling you what this means. Figure it out yourself

[10:15:54 PM] Alg: Yes, lady tsundere

[10:16:06 PM] Alg: And in my defense, I'm assuming the price thing was a glitch

[10:16:10 PM] Alg: Hence, the crash :3

[10:16:21 PM] Erika: You and Cherry are the ones who called me that

[10:17:11 PM | Edited 10:17:17 PM] Erika: Though he said I was a type B

[10:18:20 PM] Erika: So selling Full Restores doesn't actually crash the game?

[10:18:34 PM] Alg: It did in that one case

[10:18:44 PM] Alg: And in that one case, it was 4900 to sell

[10:18:59 PM] Erika: And to buy?

[10:19:09 PM] Alg: 3000

[10:19:36 PM] Erika: Oh

[10:20:50 PM] Alg: Koga: UCDWS'STOD

[10:22:14 PM] Erika: What

[10:22:28 PM] Erika: They renamed him TOD...

[10:22:53 PM] Erika: Well, if I remember correctly, his original Japanese name was Kyou

[10:23:31 PM] Alg: Oh, wait, glitched item was calcium. Spreadsheet even says that using it crashes the game

[10:23:50 PM] Erika: HA!

[10:31:04 PM] Alg: THE CHAMPION OF THE LEAGUE,DU, COMES NOW. PREPARE TO GRAPPLE

[10:31:32 PM] Erika: GL

[10:32:40 PM] Alg: Charizard is SNAKE

[10:32:52 PM] Erika: Welp

[10:35:36 PM] Erika: Anything else that's hilariously mangled?

[10:35:46 PM] Alg: Oh, you have *no idea*

 

 

 

So, that's it. Thank you all for putting up with my strange sense of humor and futile attempt to do something here. Vietnamese Crystal's second season will begin in 2014.

[12:14:32 AM] Erika: Just finished reading that
[12:14:41 AM] Erika: took two and a half hours. Wow
[12:15:14 AM] Erika: I'll admit, it was weird seeing them call their attacks
[12:15:48 AM] Erika: And I didn't like the "reminders" they put in at all... Why did they have to use her as the example?? Pretty sure there are others available...
[12:16:31 AM] Alg: But hers is basically the defining example
[12:18:29 AM] Erika: Shut up.
[12:18:34 AM] Erika: Don't forget VCrystal

[2:04:03 AM] Erika: So are you posting it?
[2:04:17 AM] Erika: Or did the game freeze up again?
[2:06:11 AM] Alg: Posting it. It's long
[2:31:47 AM] Erika: How long is it?
[2:31:51 AM] Alg: http://forum.tip.it/blog/124/entry-3547-alg-plays-the-pokemon-vietnamese-crystal-finale/
[2:31:54 AM] Alg: See for yourself

 

[spoiler=Oh, and there's this]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2E73uBUj1w#t=0

 

[spoiler=And for those of you who can't read Japanese]

The Japanese text in the EVA ending vid ALG included translates to:
"Father, thank you. Mother, good-bye. And, to all the children, congratulations."

(Chichi ni, arigatou. Haha ni, sayonara. Soshite, subete no chirudoren ni, omedetou.)

 

This is a very literal translation (that still makes sense). Sure wish I could've done more in the Behind the Scenes, but like ALG said, even I'm confused how they got "TOD" from "Kyou" (apricot, if Janine's Japanese name is any indication).

When you mentioned "Erika", the Gym Leader briefly came to mind.

So you forgot I was trying to help him make sense of this translation train wreck?
