Default Crystal Reader's Input Run

As a part of taking stress off during this semester, I've decided to do a quaint little reader's input run using Crystal, game I've never played.

The point of this is to use 'mons I've never used before, so these upcoming Pokémon aren't to be suggested. The only Johto game I've played is HeartGold, and my team consisted of this, more or less:

-Meganium
-Gengar
-Lanturn
-Noctowl
-Alakazam
-Golem

I want my team to have the basic stuff, ie a Fly user and a Surf user. I also want to keep my starter, so there's that.

Suggest away, guys! I'll have the screenshots up by tomorrow or by Friday, depending on when you guys choose.


Edit- Team so far:

[name] [female]
-Typhlosion
-Yippy [Wooper] M (surfer)
-Tomahawk [Xatu] M (flyer)
-Severus/Severa [Stantler] M/F (strengther)
-Alexander/Aurora [Ampharos] M/F
-Bataar [Tyranitar] F

A lot of what you need depends on what type your starter is. Have you decided?

In any case, I would recommend Tyranitar.

Well, based on your current team, any of the Starters would work, really. However, since you have an Ampharos, I would recommend Cyndaquil. Tyranitar also covers Feraligatr's weakness to Electric, though.

You should totally get a stantler -- Severus if it's male and Severa if it's female.

Because I love Kris okay.

Yeesh, this thing has 900+ views and it doesn't even have its first post yet... But I'm here to fix that!
***

ILS Productions gladly presents...





hwat

This is the first time I've seen this title sequence; personally, it came of much more eerie than others.

.
I find this hauntingly beautiful.


[dark!]
Dude. Er, dudette, or however you identify as; it's 8:26 PM and you're wondering at how it's so dark.



Wait a minute... Oak, you didn't just wake up, right? We had this shit scheduled for 5. I had it written down. I barely write things down.



[tures known as Pokémon.]
And here we have a quick Yippy encounter! :D




And now, for the moment of truth... What shall our name be?

Besides all of this, I have a little challenge for myself: complete a thing I right now baptized as the Romdex. The Romdex is a Pokédex minus Celebi, pretty much.

Sadly, I won't be able to use Ampharos (since it's unobtainable in Crystal, for some reason) unless you guys know of a way to trade between roms on one computer. Replacement ideas?

Completion

Romdex: 0/250

You can definitely do this. You're probably using VBA, right? There's a lot of guides on trading with yourself, like this one. I haven't tried it, but just search for "whateveremulator Pokemon trade yourself" or something if that guide's no good for you.

Last time on ILS's Crystal Reader's Input Run: Prologue!

***




Let's go with Kris. First time I ever play as a girl, so let's go with that. I find it funny that some of the other options are Amanda and Juana; the first is my sister's name, the second is a ridiculous pseudonym she uses when she's mucking around.



Our room. Lovely little room, isn't it? Let's check the PC and see if we get a free Potion~



D:



Here is our madre. She's talking to this lady who upon further inquiry is the mother of some girl who doesn't want to work with Elm. We've also discovered she thinks lowly of Kris, needing to state the fact that she is indeed visiting our house.


[Elm, was looking for you.]
Our summons! We must head over there immediately!



There's... a shop? Where? Overseas? Does the bike shop have technology specialists or something?
With that, we are handed our communication device and we trek into the outdoors!



Why tha-



*sniffles* Yes... Be strong, Kris. Be strong.



!! Suspicious activity near the lab!


[Lab...]
Yes, it is. If you want his autograph, just go right on in. People don't visit much.



Does this need to be answered?



How rude! If you keep dropkicking ladies, the only date you'll get is with Mrs. Rosie Palms. *waves finger*
To escape this horrible, Kris-hating world we enter Elm's lab. But before that, let's show Aurora to the world!



Beautiful, ain't she? Sadly, we can't get her until we beat Falkner, I think. This is the Gold file from which I'll get the unobtainables that are not Chikorita or Kanto unobtainables.


[to present at a conference.]
Is Elm a college student or something? He could very well be.



Because science, he wants us to help out with his thesis. Probably without giving credit.



Surprise, surprise! Who is it?



We are told of this mystifying man who is a great discoverer of things.



Is... is he the equivalent of the Ancient Aliens guy in the Pokéverse?

We are then promptly asked to be their ambassador. Without any other choice, Kris accepts, relieved that Elm did not call her for... other things.

As payment, Kris is offered a Pokémon.


I'm using Chikorita in HeartGold, and Totodile in Gold, so this is the only other choice.



\o/ She's a girl! I find it cute that the starters are holding a Berry. That shouldn't have been removed.

Kris gets Elm's number, hopefully for nothing creepy, and we part on our journey!



;-;



I hope it is, Joey. You are mildly inconveniencing me.



We arrive at Mr. Pokémon's house. We shouldn't worry about him; he's probably loaded since he can spend his day making up conspiracy theories.



And he gives us the Togepi Mystery Egg! Great!



He heard Elm sent me... So he stayed. *shivers* Creepy much, Oak?



I am not a delivery girl, and never will be, unless you offer some type of bribe or gift.



...This will do.

We then promptly exit the hive of creepiness!



NO ONE IS TURNING INTO ESTEBAN UNDER MY WATCH, ELM! I WILL HELP YOU!


Use your words, Elm.



I'll be right there, sheesh. Calm down, you are a grown man with a wife and a child, for Pete's sake.



You.







Have you no manners? Not even Rosie Palms wants you now...


En garde!



That was over quickly.



Did the person at the Department of Wherever-they-hand-out-birth-certificates have a seizure when they were typing your name?



You better, bitch. Or I'll sic her on you.



Heard? Jesus, Elm, you didn't even call the Police?



Wait a second... Could it be Seizure Boy?



Well, not exactly...



Great.

Completion

Romdex: 1/250
Team: 1/6


What should our rival be called?

Next up on CRI: Youngster Joey and the road to Violet City!

Last time on ILS's Crystal Reader's Input Run: Hestia and !!!!
I can trade as of now, so I can get Aurora. However, I can't get Mareep before Falkner in Gold or Silver, so I'm not doing it now.

***


Duuuude... If I tell you that if you say 'gullible' really slowly it sounds like 'orange', will you believe me?


[discovery?]
It was a... wait for it...


[Prof. Elm.]
Ta da!



*nods*


What was the name of the creepy old dude that gave it to Kris again?


[cue Elm fantasizing about Oak with little bishie sparkles around the latter]



Why, I do my best. *pose*



On our way!


What do people have against Kris's mom? Does she have it going on? We must head over there, nonetheless.


Yes?



Where were you two updates ago?!



You will? Thanks!



A+ parenting, right here. Truly inspirational.



Sorry, little guy. I'd help you but I really must get-



It's on.



Bring it, Joey!



Oh fuck, this some top percentage Rata-



Huh. Too bad, kid.



Yes. You can get them yourself, or let others choose for you. *waves to fans*



You're gonna go far in life, Joey.



We proceed with a scorched earth strategy on every single Trainer we will encounter from this point on.



shh these are just temporary
(The Pidgey's Mariachi, the Geodude's Rocky Road, and the Bellsprout is Belle. I also caught a Zubat called Batman which is for trading for Aurora.)


We made it! Violet City has one of the most beautiful soundtracks this side of Johto. Of course, it ain't got shit on Opelucid or Snowbelle.



We give away Belle for this majestic snake rock called Rocky. Copycats everywhere, amirite?



We're off to see the Leader! The Leader of Violet City!



Believe it, youse guys.



Heehee, cocky... Get it? A cock is a bird.



(credit to the Spriter's Resource for the background and the Falkner sprite!)



Here we go!



!!! That's not legal! Unacceptable!



Wait, these were your dad's? Is he a geneticist, or is he a close friend of Lance's? Did he stick you with the weakest stuff he could get, or are you just babysitting them for him?
(The first pic is from Gold, the second from Crystal)


Amen!



We get this and the Zephyr Badge! :D


Upon exiting the Gym...


! On our way!

Next time: An Egg and Aurora!
