Hello everyone!

This is my first LP, and what an LP it'll be! We'll be exploring a land filled with robots, power rangers, Death Note characters and much, much more! And I'm not even kidding.

That's right, we're playing Pokémon Black!

Notes:
-The first few updates will have a very, very bland bottom screen. Deal with it for now, it'll get stuff later.
-I'm using an English patch to make it easier for you guys to follow along. I know basic Japanese (studied it for a year at university) so I'm able to work things out, but I doubt all of you are that gifted. Please do NOT ask me where to get this patch, as I doubt it's legal to link to it here. <_<


Right! First update! This update contains 64 images, to get you all going. Unfortunately, it's just the first few minutes of the game, which are heavily text-based. Yeah! This'll be awesome!

UPDATE 1:
Spoiler:




Yeah! Intro sequence! I can't wait!



I doubt I need to make the Dragonball Z reference here. Just look at him!



Wait - we ARE playing Pokémon right? Looks more like Final Fantasy...



ಠ_ಠ



Ah, so we ARE playing Poké-What the hell is he wearing around his neck?



These two never appear in the game itself, as far as I know. Yay, filler!



This image spoils the entire plot of the game! Huzzah!



This bridge is the hope of the people!




Whatever's sleeping in there, it's not human. Blankets don't look like that.



Don't try this at home.



...
...
...
THE HORROR.



Finally, a title screen!



Ha! English for your entertainment! Now you don't get to see me suffer trying to read names.

Serious comment: I do not have access to Wi-Fi, so I won't be showing any of that.



O_O I'll go with English, thanks. I definitely don't know enough kanji to play a full game...



AH! Who are you!
Surely you can't be this game's professor...You're a woman! Pokémon doesn't have female professors!



Ahahah...Wait, what?



Alright, so I was wrong. I'm sure she's a really intelligent, capable woman.



You can lower your hand now... you dropped the ball already. Without moving your hand.
So she's also a WITCH.





Hahahah, silly! That's what NPC's do! Nobody cares about those!





That's more like it.



Curses, it's the obligatory introduction sequence where the professor pretends to not know you.



On the left, a pretty-average looking guy with no redeeming qualities.



On the right, probably the most attractive female main character in the series. What's that at the bottom of her shorts...?



Yes. But only because I don't want to look perverted... <_<



She's pretty pushy.



I can read this! If I could, I'd make an awesome Japanese name, but that'd look silly with all the English translations.



Apparently, my name is in bold. I'm THAT awesome.





...I called you intelligent and capable before, you know.



It's actually Cheren, but the translators thought that name wasn't manly enough for him. So they named him after a fish species. Good job guys!



When I was 2, I had a passion for drooling and generally not knowing what I was doing. How did he know what a Pokémon was at that age?



Also since he was 2, I bet.



She looks somewhat normal and likeable!
Watch me retract that statement within the next 5 minutes.





I promise I won't nitpick on the grammatical errors in the translation. They're generally not too major.
Also, Mom and Dad are capitalized. This means they're actual names. I can only imagine the many jokes I could make here! But I won't, because none of them are any good.



Yay, counting! We finally get a main character older than 10, but they still treat him like one!
Huzzah!



Nonsense, people in the Pokémon universe can't count. There are no schools except Trainer Schools, so the only concepts they know are slavery and violence.
I love the Pokémon universe.



Aah!



Almost? THERE'S MORE TO THIS INTRODUCTION? D:



Okay.



Okay!
No need to shout...





But... I am in town. I'm pretty sure the main character has lived there for most of his life, no?
I take back every compliment I gave you earlier.



O_O It's September 29th...





Thanks for reminding me what game I'm playing, I had already forgotten. <_<



O_O
I could swear I was playing a translation...



People in the Pokémon universe still pronounce their ellipses.



Ha, translation!
The font may seem weird, but deal with it, nothing I can do about it.



Hello, Sorry!



She just said she's Sorry. Pay attention, will you?



So she's acting like a typical Pokémon protagonist. Good job, Sorry!



Hahaha, silly, Pokémon don't fit in a box like that!
Unless she brought us three Shaymin. That'd be awesome! I bet it's three Weedles though...



...Told you I'd take back what I said about Belle within five minutes.



Then open it. It's really not that difficult.



How many times are you going to say that before I get to open the darn box?



Yay!



Curse you game, I didn't want to share.



I believe that's been established already. Like ten times.


So who do we choose?



Tsutarja, the first decent grass starter since forever?
I refuse to name him Smugleaf.



Pokabu, the fifty-sixth Fire-fighting starter?
Actually I just lost count.



Or Mijumaru, the only decent water type in the game?
I'm serious, he is. I can make do without a water type though...

UPDATE 5 HERE

UPDATE 7 HERE

A pretty decent start for an LP, I'll be sure to keep an eye on it. And I choose Mijumaru and name him Stubs, just look at how stubby those arms are.

That's subjective. Plus, May was ten and looked it.

Hurray, Yuoaman's seal of approval, we're off to a good start. I'll try to resist the obvious Baro jokes when I can. I called Araragi a witch... That wasn't easy.

Thanks for all the good feedback guys. I'll probably update this later today when I'm done with class for the week.
By the way, keep in mind that there's a 5-character limit in the Japanese version, so all nicknames will have to be that short.
Also, I'm hoping the rest of the LP will be better than this first update... It really isn't easy coming up with stuff to say for the introduction x_X

After the next update, I'll probably put up a naming thread on the Let's Play Group, so you can suggest names there.
Anyway, I just finished classes for the week, so I'll start working on an update soon.

Nice LP, I like it a lot. Anyway take mijumaru since it's the only decent water type (I noticed, too) and name it mustache (*cough*final evo*cough*). Don't take tsutarja: smugleaf doesn't fit in the 4 slots that the game lends you...oh even mustache, now that I think of it...:'(

Great LP! It's the first V.gen LP, right?!
Well you've got it on the right track!
Funny and not abnoctious!
I'd go with Tsutarja, but it's up to you!
Just keep it entertaining as it is so far!

Huzzah, update. Time to finish off the introduction stuff.
Note that from here on out, a lot of text is still in Japanese. I won't be showing most of that, but I'll try to explain (or make up) what they were talking about.

Spoiler:






I sure did. Sorry to everyone who wanted Tsutarja - I didn't really want to use him because I used him on a previous run, so I'd know his moves beforehand. That wouldn't be any fun.



Boo, sharing.



Japanese! I'll be cutting most of that out from now on.



She's challenging me! Bet you didn't see that one coming!



First battle! Truly, this will be a battle for the ages. A battle full of excitement, splendor, bravery and-





She couldn't get the ball out of her bag.
What was I saying again?



Hell yeah Tackle. A move so awesome it had its power increased since the last gen.
Also, what's with all the fancy stuff in the middle...? If I want to see my battery life, I'll look at the indicator on the DS itself, thanks...


Four turns of Tackle spam later









O_O
What...What's happening?



MY ROOM!









My brand new TV is wrecked, my comic book collection was shredded, and my computer was destroyed. I DEMAND COMPENSATION.
Wait, why are there pawprints on the WALLS? And where'd that gift box go?



O_O





HOW DID HE DO THAT?
I want to be able to do that...



He can heal his Pokémon without items or a Pokémon Center. No way am I fighting this guy.



Your...readings?
So he has healing powers AND he can tell the future?



I'm the nervous one.



Ohgodohgodohgodohgod.







He's going to destroy m-



Oh.



:D



It must have been his nerves. Surely.



And they ran off.
Belle never did clean my room.



...
When did his name change?
Oh god he has multiple identities too.



O_O
My mother is RICH!
Huzzah!





Wait - How did you not notice her bringing the box earlier? That was like 10 minutes ago.
Did she come in through the chimney...?





Is... Is HE coming?



They ran off



Apparently she doesn't approve of kindness. Why else would she use 'but'...?



Yay, stuff!
I hope it's a new TV!



Your memory isn't exactly up to scratch, is it...?



O_O
HOW DO THEY ALL DO THAT?
I want to be able to do that...





So what does that do?



Yes, but what does it do?



...
She really is filthy stinkin' rich if she can buy me expensive items solely because they're my favourite colour.
Best. Mom. Ever.



Doesn't even have a Use option...


Well, time to explore town!



WHY DID I COME HERE?





So am I.



Some of them definitely are... Isn't Muk made of 100% toxic waste?
Ash should have died ages ago.



She apologizes a lot. Get used to it!



Don't worry, Muk aren't native to Isshu. No dangerous Pokémon here!




Time to pay Santa a visit!



So where are the elves?



We got to nickname Mijumaru.



It's a Pokédex. Or a cellphone.
It used to be easy to tell the difference.



Oh hey mom. Can I have stuff?



:D



Now we're here!



Time to learn how to catch a Pokémon...
They actually tell you BEFORE you have access to Pokéballs this time!



OH GOD.



Ohai Gen V Rattata.



...A chill army...?
That pun was horrible, sue me.



Have fun with it.



:D

And that marks the end of the introduction. Hurray!
Everyone subsequently walked off. Sure hope I don't see that Cheren/Chelon/Chelen guy again...


I'll be putting up a naming thread on the Let's Play Group tomorrow or something.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I appreciate it. Glad you're all enjoying it.
I'm gonna head to bed soon, and then work my way up to my first catch in the morning, so I can put up a naming thread. But I'm wondering - Should I try to catch everything, or only what I happen to run into? Keep in mind Pokémon B/W don't introduce all that many wild Pokémon per route, and there's no Safari Zone or anything I'd get stuck in for hours if I wanted to catch everything. The most new Pokémon introduced in a single place is 4.

I'd just capture whatever it is you happen to find, it's always more entertaining than watching you hunt for Pokemon. And didn't you know? Cheron/Chelon/Cheren is Loki the Trickster God. It's a fact.

I've already stated above I'm not going to make fun of the grammatical errors, unless they're just awesome errors. Grammar jokes get old fast.

Makes sense. And yeah, I thought he'd be some kind of God...

We have just found our regional Baro...the only difference is that he didn't create the isshu pokemon...(right?)

@kholdy I didn't notice the similiarites between cheren and phoenix, and now every time I meet him I think of this...I can't resist:D
