Not much to say. This is it.
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.
They started mocking me for it!
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.
We were ready.
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
hard to understand; recondite; esoteric: abstruse theories.
Obsolete . secret; hidden.
Neither Erika not I could figure out what was going on here.
But I decided that type advantages were overrated and did this.
The next guy is another meditate-in-a-room-fulla-lava [wagon].
Who has apparently strengthened his body to the point where he can ignore convection. This, my friends, is what badassery looks like.
This guy's been in the FOUR EMPERORS since the beginning.
Of course, HUDE trivialized it.
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
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.
Except the paparazzi interrupted.
And I will let our friend OUJIDUO speak the closing words.
Please ignore the game time, it's less than 1/4 of that

[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...

[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.
