It's 2014. I wanted to wait a week or two, but Erika had other ideas. So here it is, season 2 of Pokemon Vietnamese Crystal. Wherein Alg explores Kanto, wins eight more BUDGES, and finally, earns the title of "[wagon]".

[8:39:55 PM] Erika: And meanwhile, now I'm trying to multitask. Skype, Youtube, and Japanese homework. Not made any easier by the fact that [redacted] just responded

[redacted]

[8:40:35 PM] Alg: I'll avoid distracting you further then :3

And worst of all, I'm on my own

 

[spoiler=I'M ON A BOAT]

I start the season in the same spot as I started the last one. My house.

Except that the call knows where I live. Back to work...

 

It's literally 10 feet from my house. He could have come in person.

Yaay, presents!

Oh.

I get the feeling he's just trying to get rid of me. I'm the SUCCESSOR OF ELF, for god's sake, not some errand girl. [bleep] all of this, I'm done.

Wait, what?

Bribery! [bleep] yeah!

As every 10 year old knows, this is useful for catching shinies that know selfdestruct or that run away legendaries. I'm sold, which way is Guandong?

Of course, it wasn't long before the plot happened.

An uncle lost a granddaughter on a ship. This is the beginning of every SAT question ever. I asked him for more advice: what does this girl look like, where was she last seen-

Oh. Helpful.

I was distracted by the fact that there were other coaches on board. Free experience is always a good thing.

 

Plus, I get my own room!

I... I just don't know anymore

 

...

 

Moving on!

I don't think he's actually a sailor

OH GOD THE SHIP IS BEING ATTACKED BY SEA MONSTERS

 

One epic combat montage later, and i saved the little girl.

So.. So precocious.

 

And now my reward!

And arrived at my destination after a brief sucker punch in the childhoods.

 

Anyway, you know what a new region means, right?

Oh. I guess I'll leave then. No point inwait a minute...

Oh god. He's a gamer.

Oh my.

Just for the record: New!Kanto's CURATOR music is probably among the best in the series.

Of course, I have two ELFs with Earthquake. Hilarity ensues.

Woo! Citrus!

...Eh?

 

Anyway, the next gym was less than five minutes away.

So I went in, got through a few battles and...

...Forgot that some items crash the game! Well, let's see if my save is still alright:

And it is! But not saving means that I have to repeat the entire part!

[bleep]!

 

 

 

[spoiler=NEXT TIME... ON POKEMON VIETNAMESE KANTO]

I do everything again

 

 

 

[spoiler=Behind the Scenes!]

[8:40:35 PM] Alg: I'll avoid distracting you further then :3

[8:40:58 PM] Erika: I'm still here to help. I got a short attention span, anyway

[8:41:11 PM] Erika: Can't do anything for too long before thinking it's boring

[8:41:53 PM] Alg: But I can use it as fuel for a joke. Open the part with that bit about multitasking and say "AND NOW I'M ON MY OWN"

[8:42:37 PM] Erika: Very well. Just don't mess up too much, ボンクラ

I lied.

[8:54:29 PM] Alg: Hm... Surge = TINGSI

[8:54:38 PM] Erika: Hm...

[8:56:17 PM] Erika: "Japanese マチス Matis From Clematis. Alternative names for this flower includes kazaguruma and tessen. "

[8:58:42 PM] Alg: And his badge is the ORANGE BADGE

[8:58:56 PM] Erika: That's what it is in Japanese

[8:59:10 PM] Erika: I think all the Kanto badges are named after colours

[8:59:39 PM] Alg: A theme that the localization applied to cities

[8:59:48 PM] Erika: Yup

[9:00:04 PM] Alg: Sabrina is XIAMU

[9:00:14 PM] Erika: Er...

[9:01:18 PM] Erika: OH!

[9:01:30 PM] Erika: They were using her Japanese name!

[9:01:35 PM] Erika: Her Japanese name is Natsume

[9:02:07 PM] Erika: I think they had the Kanji 夏目 in mind

[9:02:30 PM] Erika: The first one means "summer" and can be pronounced "natsu" in Japanese

[9:02:46 PM] Erika: The second one means "eye" and can be pronounced "me" in Japanese

[9:03:40 PM] Erika: And yes, they are pronounced xia(4) mu(4) in Chinese (I think I got the tone right)

[9:03:52 PM] Alg: Ah

[9:04:22 PM] Erika: That's one thing for your BTS.

[9:04:28 PM] Alg: Either way, gameplay is done

[9:04:37 PM] Erika: So you beat Surge and Sabrina?

[9:04:50 PM] Alg: Surge, yes. Sabrina... Not quite

[9:04:59 PM] Erika: You wiped to her?

[9:05:15 PM] *** Alg sent 45.PNG 45.PNG ***

[9:05:34 PM] Alg: I tried to heal and this happened. Save is still intact, so I'll just try again next week

[9:05:52 PM] Erika: I think that's the anti-piracy screen

[9:06:11 PM] Erika: So basically, you used something that crashed the game

[9:06:17 PM] Alg: Yay

[9:06:33 PM] Erika: I've said it before and I'll say it again.

[9:06:43 PM] Erika: ボンクラ

 

An uncle lost his granddaughter

[9:46:11 PM] Erika: Well, if it helps, the Chinese use the same characters for "uncle" and "mister"

[9:46:37 PM] Erika: 叔叔 - though it's very casual, I think. And usually spoken to little kids

[9:47:02 PM] Erika: Don't quote me on that

[9:47:27 PM] Erika: I'm not really sure, TBH

[9:47:57 PM] Erika: Though I do know why the little girl called you "sister"

[9:48:16 PM] Alg: Ah

[9:48:46 PM] Erika: Apparently, Japanese and Chinese children refer to older girls as "姐姐" (older sister)

[9:49:03 PM] Erika: Well, I know it's true for Chinese, anyway

[9:49:25 PM] Erika: And I have seen anime use "name" - neesan

That should say "ボンクラ" instead. Get it right, will ya?

Just joking around here. No offense, right?
