THE CLAAAAAAAAAAAW



Anyway, more entertaining episodes. >:3 Admittedly I don't have my own copy of this game just yet, but eventually when I find some money it'll be on the queue of things I want to do but shouldn't because it will cause me to get another plot bunny. xP

Be careful if you do buy one as apparently some had issues with even remembering the save file. =/ Glad you're still eenjoying it though!

Anyways, onwards we go! Oh, and sound stuff might not work becaus ripway is all 'lol exceeded daily download limit' but apparently 0 bytes were downloaded. ._. Anyone know of a better music file hosting site?



Part Six - Kelina Village!
Or talking to a lot of weird people and things who want bombs.

Spoiler:


So, uh, last time we were told to go to this other town via the natural transportation system of GIANT TREE. I guess we go in...?


Well that was exciting. Wonder if they have any baseball there?


Different town, same music. This is pretty much consistent.


Yes, we gathered as much from the giant floating sign above our heads when we first entered.


Yep, I can see that too, given all the busy-ness around here.


Well, can it? My guess is yes - the crazy, and the crazier.


'There are two kinds of electric monster? There are two kinds of electric monster! There are two kinds of electric monster... ~There are two kinds or electric monster~
TWO! HAHAHA


Natural? What makes one natural? ARE HALF OF YOU SECRETLY ROBOTS!?


...so no Baseball monster, how disappointing.


More fight!


What lazy things they must be. 'Son, have you evolved yet?' 'I'll do it this afternoooonnnn...' 'Don't make me come upstairs!' But how do you evolve them?


So in other words, do what Team Rocket did? Uh... I'm going to leave now.


LEAVING


Oh?


...okay. A guy who you never saw before likes some sort of gun, GOOD TO KNOW.


Yep - how else would you get entertainment without someone just walking out of any old tree?


What do you mean, I just use one just fine... unless you mean there's another one in which case that makes more sense. Nobody wants to visit MUSA. =(


...that was quick?


So you were lying? But what key and who or what is Alice aaaaaaaaa.


What are you even talking about the people here make even less sense and want to recreate Mewtwo again =( And you all look weird too.


Best house ever, guys. Let's try going down...


Well, I was only-


=(


Oh hey, it's that annoying person! Standing next to TREASURE! However they do not notice Bek, or just ignore his shouts of Baseball.


But there's clearly one right behind you, gosh. Why does everyone block everything this town sucks. =(


Oh hey, wild owl monster things here. Maybe we can try-


=( Even with the type advantage he ran! Monsters sometimes do that at low health.


Story time! (After jumping).


SANARBA... great name.


ADULTS MUST PAY IN SOUL POWER. Also you surely mean 'here', not 'there'. =(


No Bek, they're not a Baseball team.


Wait... a pharmacy company discovered this word?

I knew it. This is all because of drugs.

Nothing much else of note is said besides Bek saying that he is confused. Can't blame the kid. He is promptly advised to 'try to get more friends'. Oh, burn.


Oh not you again.


Oh no!


...uh. That's Manstl, folks - got a problem? No worries - he recommends giving your friends BOMBS! That'll solve everything! Remember it.

These random calls steadily get worse as you'll see. =p


Oh, this sucks... let's go and look for someone else to talk too-


AAAAAAAAAAAAA WHAT ARE YOU GET AWAY


GUMI'S A CREEPER =(


Yes, thank you, Not-Sandslash. Overkill is always a good way to get rid of it. (Type advantage, yo). But god it has rolls of fat and


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA


See, the fat doubles as protection from attacks. =(


I bet you this guy heard about how we should give him a BOMB.


Yep, how about that. Should we give him a BOMB?


No, I think a CLAW TO THE FACE is better. =(


More interesting 'dex' entries.


The grass is now DIAMONDS. (No, really - running fast to cut grass can find you diamonds. They're worth more ball!)


Yeah, you do that. At least you're not a creeper or want bombs.


Yeah, so did I...whatever you are. Mini cyclone maybe?


Why are you asking meeeeeeee and obviously we can't enter because he's - wait, he's a Gumi isn't he. =( No wonder nobody can enter with that...thing in the way!


Speaking of the devil...


Search sounds... uh. Actually I want to pick the 'not talk to you' option. Heck even baseball is infinitely better!


'Hurr durr, losing is fun!'


...ok? Anyways when monsters call you they may ask you questions. How you answer may gain or lose 'FD' which is happiness I suppose. (Why FD is anyone's guess...FrienD?). Winning battles can also increase it. What it does is...uh...not clear.


Ok, so he's in charge I guess?


Oh no! Shock! Horror! Oh the despair!


...I thought you just said...nevermind.

Let's check the shop first.




...Something looks off about these items...


Let me shoa you my stabs.


For all your Grim Reaper needs! And considering how much money we have look how affordable this stuff is! Great stuff for kids.


Fun for the whole family!


...uh.


Wait why are you calling me AGAIN


...I am not making this up - I looked at the bomb and then he calls me and decides to tell me ABOUT OTHER FIRENDS OF HIS THAT WANT A BOMB. GOOD GRIEF.

MANSTL WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM


What.

And then phone calls got even more creepy.


Oh god you also know. Stop trying to sweet-talk your way into getting a bomb!


No, pretending to be crazy or helpful ISN'T HELPING YOUR CAUSE.


Not-Sandslash pops up to warn us about our bomb-loving friends.

That'll do for this update - I'll try to keep each one to this sort of size more often so it's easier for me to make an update. The next one might be relatively soon!

...Yes, it is. =p

And as nobody else posted (the more the merrier people ;p), I'll get onto the next part! And a word of warning - from here on in the swearing in the game starts gradually...and then very quickly sticks to it a few parts down the track. (!)


Part Seven - Search for a Thief!
Or a lot of talking to someone and trying to find [Key]!

Spoiler:

So, last off we were being warned by Not-Sandslash... you could say that our bomb-loving 'friends' are rather, well-

Yes, well put, whoever is behind that floating text box.


Oh, it's another of...those things. Guess we ought to talk to it.


Bek sure does have a way with words.


Not the key! But I guess that's what was being talked about beforehand!
Gotta like that it's not clear who's asking 'who did so'.


...The prisoner stole the key? What prisoner?


Basically sums it up!


That's...real deep, man.


Yeah, you tell him, Bek!


Gosh, that's pretty pathetic of you.


See, even Bek jumps at the patheticness. Deal with your own problems!


Wait what.


God damn it Bek.


I mean... Well done, Bek!

But then again given how weird people are here... with our luck he'll just give us a bomb.


Guess we ought to go find our thief. Bek, who do you think stole-


Well ok.


But Bek that is a monster I doubt he even has pockets for a key.


See, no pockets!


Unfortunately SUKORI didn't quite think it had been a peaceful accusation.


Gotta like veiled threats!


Clearly SUKORI knows which is the bigger threat here - the oversized ugly Jabba the Hut.


Uh, I don't think it's a good idea to bite...that thing...


Well damn.


Nor it seems about what to bite or not. Clearly not our thief then because...well, he said so.


And then he disappears into thin air. I guess one can assume he died of food poisoning.


Oh look, that annoying person showed up! I just hope by 'leave it to me' she isn't going to try and eat GUMI too. =(




If you were referring to GUMI then we are also wondering the same thing.


Clearly Bek is none too pleased.


Quick, Bek, think up an excuse!


Well done, Bek.


Yes! Going to other worlds promotes you to the rank of 'ordinary!'


Uh...well, you see...


Well put, Bek. He's 'missing', all right.


I like how the game calls the thief 'prisoner' despite the fact on only becomes a prisoner when, you know, they're caught, not before. Unless we're talking about some poor confused curry worker who escaped and tried to use the key to get the hell away from this place... say Miyor, how do we get back?


Fat load of help you are. =( And yes, we said the same thing when he bit GUMI.


"You know the type - someone who has a moustache, evil laugh, a key and dislikes baseball, for instance. That's always suspicious!"


Ah yes, so there is.


Is that so! It's nice when Miyor is actually being helpful.


'something happened', how specific.

After being thanked by Bek for being of big help:


Oh snap again! Implying Bek is not a good pal here, and then telling him to move.


And jumping for extra measure! =o


Pleasedontalkaboutbombspleasedontalkaboutbombspleasedontalkaboutbombs....


The left option really does make sense - we've no idea what he is talking about! Hurrah for random phone quizzes.


I... guess? And what is this Resu option?


Hurrah? Uh, let's just talk to that guard.


This is sounding rather like a religious cult...


...Are you ok?


To place emphasis on his not-okayness he jumps... and then this tune starts up!


Just in case the following screenshot didn't give it away, you know.


I like how he said 'shut up' when Bek has really said nothing to him. That and his choice word there.


And he continues to ramble to himself.


Ooh, and now Bek is the 'damned guy'... and he still wants to shut him up.


Ways in advance?


Oh.


I hate all of you GUMIS. =(

Normally that level would be of a worry, but given it's a 2-on-1 battle in our favour...

...and we have Not-Sandslash...



...who has a type advantage...


It's a fun one-sided battle lasting one turn. \o/


Maybe, but you didn't, so.


No.


Curses, he escaped under the veil of the text screen again! And look, a phone call! It's from Sungki as usual.


KAKUZATO had done sth. !?!? Oh dear!


Uh, firstly you're talking to Bek, Sungki, so you can refer to him directly. And do you mean 'where Bek is' or 'lived'? I'm inclined to think the former, but well, it's telefang! English good not!


And having entered the cave, we'll end this here! Battles and random phone calls await in the next update!

Osie, right? Actually.. I never actually used Kuribute before beyond the 2nd place so I think I'll stick with him with this runthrough. Besides Armory (which I have used before) didn't strike me as the greatest to be honest. =/

Next update is likely to be next week sometime. (ie easter break).

So it's Easter-ish so let's do this! Blame PC downtime for the delay. I know I do! =D

Part Eight - Kelina Cave
Or Learning about Peach Boy and KAKUZATO
Spoiler:




So, we're in - let's go and- at that point I got a phone call with more questions. I was lucky to save the game beforehand - certain phone calls are always in a specific order so this keeps repeating no matter which one calls me. Hence I could explore all the options and what is said for each one!


This is a [question]! Yes No

But who the frell is Peach Boy? Is he talking about this?
Spoiler:


Well uh, let's say yes.


Abuh. Is Peach Boy a Glutinous millet bun what.

The answer btw is yes. (Different e-monster asking this time)

Dwell on that for a bit.

And if we said no to that...statement about it hearing a story about Peach Boy:



Now that's just rude. =(


And then he asks us another 'question' about Peach Boy despite saying we do not know. Uhhhh...

Yes:
Spoiler:


Turtledove what.

No:
Spoiler:


I'm not even sure of what I am supposed to sense!


Possibly the most confusing part of the game dialogue-wise.


Noooo we don't need any more crazy questions! AAAAAAA


I don't know anymore I think my brain is bleeding.


What, is Peach Boy here?


Wait, what?


There's more than one of these KAKUZATO? Oh dear.


RODANSA - he's Cool!


Hurrah for a 2-on-1 battle. Just as well we got OSIE in the cave too, because anything else takes 3 turns to reach us! When RODANSA has the type advantage, that's pretty significant.


And hence the battle is easy!


From here nearly every 'trainer' battle results in you getting a phone number.


Whatever you say, religious cult member.


What is it? I wish I knew too...


Hey, you don't know either!


Le sigh. What are they even anyway? Aliens? Cosplayers?


Quick and easy provided you've done a bit of grinding beforehand. Not that we needed more owls though.

Moving onwards!


You should totally quit and just let me past without a battle.


Yes, it is troublesome-


Yet he still battles.


Owls everywhere! We now have all the owls. ALL OF THEM.


"First election, are you half study half work,". I'm sure he's trying to tell me something, but what?


I suppose Not-Sandslash counts as a thing.


Not more of them!


Wait, pals? If you mean those owls you can have them, I already had the phone number of one and frankly one is more than enough. Stupid bomb-loving thing...


Clearly having someone's phone number is serious business!


And so we meet the angry starfish.


Now they start having more than one creature! However theirs take a few turns to arrive, and as type advantages come into play...


We win before the other arrives, and hence end the battle early.


...let's just move on then, shall we?


I guess you mean the guy above you who I just beat up...?


How without grammar?


"The land of baseball!"


It's a dinosaur! A Cowardly one, but he has pants!


Similar story - easy battle, ended before the other creature arrives.


But then why does it seem like he is wearing pants...? And how does that even work - pockets on the feet? Man, biology sure screwed up a lot of things around here.


We defeated the competition? Can we not save the day anymore? Maybe the exit is onwards...


Curses!


Oh look, the bomb loving friend has returned, and managed to get the ]tags[ wrong as well. But look, a question even Bek can answer!


It seems the game suddenly turned into Baseball Trivia - now with extra owls.


"And by bat, I mean [Bomb]."

Anyways now we can continue-


Curses again!


Imagine your town or village or whatnot suddenly overrun overnight by KAKUZATO...whatever they are. =(


Try catching some proper grammar first. OH!


C'mon, I was only kidding.


Man, these guys sure are sensitive.


Oh cool, a scorpion! And something that has decent defence as well, notably!


It has scissors!? =o


Yes, I'm sorry too. Sorry that I've had to beat up all of these...things. Whatever they really are.


I understand the first part - this village is important location-wise and so he wants to have power here... only then it breaks down at the end. Or does he only want to vote that badly? I don't even. Sounds like crazy politician talk again.


Ramble all you like, you're still going to lose.

Say, OSIE, maybe you'd like to do something in this battle! Not-Sandslash is doing all the work here -what can you do?


Oh god what are you doinggggggg


I don't blame you, PUNIKA. =(

Note that being afraid is basically a status in the game - rather like being frozen in the Pokemon games. However on the turn you 'stop being afraid' you still can't do anything. Yay broken moves!


PUNKIA is quickly persuaded to join us.


???


I can't win TABASUKO. Aww. Like all the others he fades away after spouting his engrish.


Oh well, maybe this set of stairs leads us closer to TABASUKO or the exit or something. As long as its not the way to Peach Boy. I might just eat that millet bun.


Oh hey it's curry guy. I knew a politician was lurking about!


Why indeed? Wait, is this Bek saying this, questioning the fact that Mr Curry is suddenly here? Wow.


...I guess I'll let Bek go there?


Ramble ramble and then a swear!


Even Bek is shocked!


I think Bek had enough of KAKUZATO.


Our politician dislikes this allegation!


Give it to me you sure will!


Why is that [even in brackets?]


Either he's a wimp or TABASUKO said that she disliked curry. Oh well, we're almost there!


That was quick! TABASUKO must be in the next room - let's see what she is doing!


Uh... jumping about like crazy?


I guess that explains it?


She'll not be just a woman - she'll be a woman head! =o


She sure is excitable... ._.


Not seen - Bek jumping. But hey, she remembers his name!


One - he won the election in his hometown election. This redundancy is redundant!
Two - they're married/related!? Yet he is referred to as Mr NERIKARI so their names are different... uh.
Three - why should he be not underestimated anyways!?


...is it?


Oh, she calling for help. Typical.


What is that supposed to mean? Is she referring to herself? Does she think Bek is evil? Or is Bek talking? Thing is he did not jump then aaaaaaaa.

This game is confusing.


See? Logic falls to pieces!




Why hello there, snake with arms.


Good news - we currently have the advantage.

Bad news - if we can't knock out that snake before the others arrive it's a 2 vs 3 battle in her favour.


Thanks for the advice!


Ew, that's just mean! Get him, Not-Sandslash!


Wat. No, missing is bad!


And then he one-hits OSIE. =( Looks like we're-


And then Not-Sandslash one-hits him back?


Hurrah for the quickest and yet most murderous battle thus far?


Yeah, I'm surprised too!


Sorry.


She then jumps up and down a lot to place emphasis on this fact. You know, in case it wasn't obvious enough.


"The GREATEST head in all of the heads in the land!"


She runs off and never reappears again.

No, really, that's it from her in the game. But hey, we now have the key to the tree! Now we can go...somewhere else!


Yay, I suppose!


Yay agai-wait.

...


Yes, well put, Not-Sandslash. Remember: you didn't see anything.


I like how he's not sure of who he is any more.


How did he know what we just did?


Hint hint. I suppose MUSA told him to tell us to go help everyone else for him...

But that'll wait for the next update!

Wow, you weren't kidding about the curry, huh?

I was laughing out loud most of the way through this, especially the recent parts. Engrish such as this offends me more than most, so I found it hilarious. I think the best part was the, ah . . . 'Glutinous millet bun'. My reaction was most similar to yours on that point.

Thanks - I hope this'll give you more in the way of laughs and confused nostalgia. =p


Part Nine: Off to Alice!
Or a lack of good judgement and more questionable NPCs.

Spoiler:


So last time we were told to keep going. I guess we should tell that guy we got the key back. And definitely not mention those revolvers.




What discussions? And I solved those problems! Keep with the times...whatever you are!


Who is 'he'? Typical NPCs making little sense.


Is it a ticket out of this place?


Reform card?


I guess they are like P-cards...?


Bek somehow knows (despite never having been here before) that these cards are the way to evolve stuff. Uh.... And yet he doesn't want to take them although that's not necessarily a bad idea...


'Don't let your conscious get to you - these magic cards are so cool! And shiny!'


Bek is showing a surprising lack of morals here.


Yes, they should. With something better. >:[ All we got for beating up a whole group of politicians as thanks were two cards.


I don't know what this way is, but I sure like the sound of that!


Meanwhile Not-Sandslash levelled up, yay. Not half-bad for this stage of the game tbh. Anyways, let's get out of here and to the next place. I want some food.


I guess it worked? But...why is the tree in a building anyway? True story - in my first ever playthrough I was terribly confused on where to go because of this fact - I made the mistake of looking for a tree like everyone said I should do. Key lesson - never trust anyone here!

As a beside, you may notice the screenshot is darker - Telefang has a day-night system! Not half-bad in fact.


Bah.


No.


The Miss...?


Cue image of a person stuck in a finger ring shouting for help. God damn bears! But apparently the answer is A...


Yes, such thoughts never occurred to myself either, tbh...

Hey, is that a ufo in the sky?


This is how switching your 'main e-monster' works. They get abducted by aliens and fly off only to be replaced by...wait a second...


GODDAMNIT I guess there's no getting around it - he wants his BOMB. =( And now we have a card that evolves stuff...


...Are you sure you want to evolve, stalker owl?


WHAT HAVE WE DONE!?


...wait, what?

After all that bugging it only gives you some experience. Sure, it sounds like he got a lot...then you look at the number at the top there and see that it gave him 24, possibly less if this one took part in any battles. =/ Enough to go up one level, but although some items do evolve creatures, this one did not.

This is stupid let's just go to Alice already.


It's so hip and happening!


Excitement! Where's the shops so we can eat some fish?


Okay sheesh.


Maybe they don't like fish?


Hmm, no shop or sea here...


What a nice welcome! Maybe you're one of the sane ones who didn't drop out of english classes?


Yay! I think!


This Frankenstein's Monster lookalike fellow however...


Hey there!


Now, see, this guy's sentence makes more or less enough sense thus far...


Followed Vigina...? Trees live where? In the sea? Um.


What a boring house. =( Where's that shop!?


Well is there a food shop?


Yay, a town with no shop. Oh well, let's talk to random people! Might as well be friendly and all that jazz!


Well hi! =D


:<

I dislike this place.


And you're plain unhelpful. Way to state the obvious and what we've already been told!


Oh joy, another phone call.


Firstly, he refers to MUSA as a presbyter. If you don't know what that is:

Secondly...MUSA wants a propeller?


ALL HAIL BISHOP MUSA



He heard fishing a lot!


Why is that?


His rambling may seem silly and whingy, but I assure you he's not kidding about that part.


...okay...


Well if they looked at you, Mr. Frakenstein's Monster, I don't blame them. No offense.


...you wanted to eat them? Good grief.


Whatever you say, talking house.


'Are good one, my friend just this one.' Powerful wording!


Maybe you also wanted to eat him? See, fish I'll eat, but electric monsters...yeah, no.


Oh hey a friend of Bek's apparently!


What kind of a name is Wunan, firstly? And Bek sure got friends all right - all by telling Not-Sandslash to beat them to a pulp until they gave us their phone number.


Oh no Bek get out of there he wants your card! Anyone calling you cool has a secret ulterior motive!


NO


That's rather rude. =(


"This [sea hole] was very historic! So much that nobody has ever seen it."


Nah, it's not like they live there or anything!

That's enough Alice Town people let's try going east a bit.


=o They have Police here!? Let's tell them about MUSA.


Wow, uh... Actually I don't think they'd be of much help. The brains in our heads should also be take good care of!

Inside the house someone tells us that they protect the woods and that it is their headquarters. Yay.


...Good to know?


Cool, let's go check it out-


It's a pink Octorok?


A friendly one!


Hurrah for type advantages in our favour.


And now we have this thing's phone number. As long as he doesn't ask for bombs I guess?


???

I would, but your text boxes are blocking my view of it. =( I bet he hid treasure there! Spill the beans!


You suck.

I suppose we can try to swim there? Let's go to the beach!


Hey, we can't enter the water! This sucks. Maybe this guy sitting here can help us?


No, that's just Bek. He's a random kid, not a man! Funny that he only noticed us when we talked to him.


See? Bek's no man, he's trying to run away-wait.

Nowhere to escape? But you just came from above...uh.


Will our hero be eaten by the e-monster from the sea? Will Bek manage to get past that invisible wall and escape from the thing that looks like a lamp from behind? WILL ANY FISH EVER GET CONSUMED!?

Find out in the next update!

Eww indeed... I apologise for that then. =p

Also next update in a week at best because uni assessments everywhere. >_< On the flip side, the next part is basically the most memorable part of the game imo! I am sure many who have played the game before agree.

Is it just me or is this game a series of barely connected events occurring in something even native Engrish speakers would find hard to decipher?

That is a pretty large possibility, true.
Quote:
Also:

If you think that's scary...wait until we encounter the guy's evolutions. =(

Anyways, Telefang now proudly presents...

Part Ten: THE SEA
Or a guide to remembering it.
Spoiler:


So last off Bek was being a wuss and failing to escape from a sea e-monster because 'Nowhere to escape!'. Somehow.


Yes, Bek, yes it is.


Or, well, ok to jump at any rate.


You heard the blue foul-mouthed vase-like sprite, Bek. Wonder what he wants to tell Bek, besides 'stop being stupid'.


...as one does. But he has a point - someone mentioned that there's no shop here.

Spoiler:

Well, tried to say as much anyway.


Fine, we'll pay attention to you.


Well what's in it for us?


...So if we don't then we can't go swimming here.

Normally you'd have to go all the way back to first village to buy the 'game machine' for him. Luckily way back beyond the fourth wall in the 3rd part we already did that!

Spoiler:

See?



I guess we might as well. It didn't even have batteries.


Here, you sea e-monster, I hope you enjoy it.


Wait no why are you jumping on it.


Why would you break it gosh that cost me forty balls! (It really did!) That's as many as four tens, and that's terrible.


...fine, play it the way you want to.


Hello there, Not-Vaporeon.


And...why did you give us this?


And then he disappears. Apparently we are supposed to call him to be able to go swimming.


They sure do. Then they swear at you, ask for presents and jump on them before giving you their phone number.


Well screw you Not-Vaporeon, we can swim - err, walk in the ocean ourselves! Maybe we'll call you if we get in a battle.



The tune is not that great here, but oh well.

So people said the sea e-monsters were angry-


...wait, what? Go two steps and suddenly I...say what again?


But I don't even want a tree!


...well I guess a battle it is. Let's call that guy up then.

But Not-Sandslash, why did he say those things?


WHYYYYYYY


Good retaliation, Not-Sandslash.


Maybe he knows?


Sometime in battles, you'll get called by the creatures you call up, and they'll give you a message. For some reason it cuts short unless you mash the A button really quickly and have super-hyper-fast reading skills. The gist of it though is 'lol I'm going to be late' and they don't show up for a few more turns. Most annoying!

And this guy always does this. I bet he is too busy jumping on his game. >:[


However Not-Sandslash is very good at killing sea (water) types, so these battles are easy.


And then he disappears.

And...that's what happens in the sea. You walk about (because swimming is boring in the ocean), get shouted at by random monsters about trees and then they swear and shout 'remember it!'.


And just to put the icing on the cake the bomb-loving guy decides to call me again! I'm not sure why I'm getting so many calls from him...


My brain, it is melting.


Luckily the wild random encounters (ie battles not caused by someone shouting at you) don't involve swearing.


Translation - 'I accidentally the directions so I'm going to be late! :D'. Oh well, we can beat this guy too without-


AAAAAAA


ARE YOU OKAY NOT-SANDSLASH


I can't blame you there.

What just happened is why Mantea is actually a pretty interesting e-monster. That move is called SHOUT which basically gives the status of (being) 'afraid' to the opponent which renders them unable to do anything.

Although the effect is only temporary...


...that in itself takes up a whole turn. It's a nasty move, although wonderful if you abuse it yourself. =D


FINALLY whyever are you late!?


Well then don't jump on your flipper next time, gosh.

What moves do you have anyway?

BITE does minor damage as this guy's attack sucks, COLDGAS is a lame status and RESUME is minor healing.

Well you're boring. We don't really need you anyways as Bek can apparently walk on water.


Not-Sandslash can kill stuff in one hit anyway here!


Oh hey he was also a high level AND gave us his phone number. Excellent. You are our new best friend, pink tentacle cow thing.

These sea e-monsters are not that bad after all!


I spoke too soon.


Why won't you listen to me!? I don't want your stupid trees.


Pointless trying to reason with these guys. This one is pretty poor defensively.


I don't want to remember that! =(


AAAAA GO AWAY


Overkill is always nice. (They don't even have 64 HP never mind 128).


Yaaaaaay lots of stat boosts this time around.


Why does everyone keep saying that?


You guys suck.


FISHMAN.

No, seriously, just look at that thing for a moment. Then turn away. Back to Fishman.


Unfortunately, he's also weak.


And rude like the others.


Meanwhile in 'other reasons why MANTEA is cool'!


Essentially it can hide and avoid being hit for a turn or few. Kinda pointless if it's on its own as it can't attack during hiding, but potentially useful if you have it in a team and the opponent tried to attack it.


You suck, LILIAO(B). (Whyever it shortens their name in battles is beyond me).

Now, I COULD repeat what happened here over and over besides the interesting parts throughout this whole trip, or I could give you the condensed version of what happens.

I'm opting for the latter.


This line sums up Bamu Sea basically!

So I spent a bit of time grinding. Not that I had much choice:


=(

Some weren't very bright though.


???

After that straightforward battle though:


Wait, what? Well... let's do it!




SO EXCITING


AOKUTERU! The...taller pink elephant tentacle thing!

More stats are gained with evolution and sometimes new/replaced/renamed moves. It's generally useful to have your creature evolve.


What useful advice shall we get now?


...


Now, at one point in THE SEA, you can go either right or left. The former leads you this this door (in the middle of the ocean mind you) which is locked. Oh well, time to backtrack a bit.


During that we got this guy's help too!


I can't say I know exactly how that works...


Going to the left leads you up to this guy.


Amazingly he doesn't ramble at you about forgetting pain from wounds and whatnot! This guy is basically the nicest guy you will meet here.


Ignoring the fact that there's a tree in the middle of the ocean and the completely left-field-ness of this bit of news (what guy?), a bit of thought can possibly explain the ranting of everyone else - they naturally assume you were the guy who was going to go wood-chopping. For some reason.


...and Bek seems to have a swollen ego now. T mildew if you remember is a term for people who use 'e-monsters well' - basically good trainers here. But Not-Sandslash has done all of the work, Bek, not you. Besides:
Spoiler:


You're a coward Bek.


Apparently the other guy, whoever he is, is pretty good. Not good news for Bek.


At least Bek knows the right question to ask here.


The jump is for the fact this guy realises Bek has allowed himself to again be the hero of the day. What luck for him! You'd think Bek would have figured this out by now.


...so I guess that door has the tree behind it. But how do we unlock it? =/ Remember Bek, we don't have a key for it and it was certainly locked.


*facepalm*


No, that's being lazy of you and also avoiding the issue. The 'usual way' is locked and you clearly don't have the key or you would have given it to us. Besides, this is a piece of cake!






That showed him what a piece of cake was. Now tell us already what to do if you're too lazy to do it yourself already, without lying.


Oh, NOW he says it's difficult! How about that.


Wait cave I though we were talking about saving a tree?


...Okay...


Interesting choice of password if I do say so myself.


Everyone depends on Bek - he is the world's buttmonkey!

Well I guess we should check out that house that needed a password then! To get to a cave...for some reason. This game sure likes to skip over the details.


Blah blah password let us in already.


Translation - press A for no reason before walking in!


But I was just in the sea!


Floating island...? Wait, I though you'd just take me to the place-




And then Bek seriously trips out, as the onslaught of engrish finally takes its toll on him.




THE SEA is continued in the next update, whenever that'll be! Did that make much sense to anyone when the wound heal? You say it again! Remember it!

Aw, clearly nobody wanted to remember it. =p Ah well, here's the next part! Not that long but eh.

Part Eleven: Enter BOUNDARY
Or that guy with a really good theme tune who hates trees.
Spoiler:





Last we were teleporting away...somehow. Wherever shall we end up?


Oh, this place. I guess we can go into the cave there now!


A strange pot/button...thing is inside, next to a coffin? Huh. Jump on the button, Bek, maybe we can make a thing happen.




Suddenly music! I'm not sure why it plays here and hardly anywhere else (if ever!) but...well, there it is.


I don't know how standing on a button makes the gate an ocean away open, but let's not question it! Let's go back outside then - standing on the coffin probably won't help us. (But who's telling us the gate is open...?)


Hell to you too, Sungki? You seem unsure of your name?


No.


...And that's all Sungki wanted to say, and Bek doesn't even answer before the call ends. Abuh. I wanted to see Sungki's reaction to wikipedia saying Mildew is a type of fungus. =(


LOOK SPARKLES


Standing on the magical sparkly island simply makes the teleportation sequence happen again and takes us to the beach.


See? Not very exciting. Nor is the trip back to the antenna tree gate - I trust you remember what happened in the sea.




Anyways, we get there and...the music cuts out. Huh. And then a phone call!


"Sorry about hanging up before, I dropped the phone in a toilet."


Oh boy... Mr Bek, I like starting every sentence with your name. I'm also wondering why Sungki is using the plural there (you'll see why that's odd in a sec...) and how he knows this anyway! And "let's hide?" He's far away!


Wait what?


SUDDENLY A SWOOSH SOUND


And then this guy jumps off and lands.



Meet the rival!...Okay, well, "rival". He has one of the best music themes in the game though!


Well, hi there! I see your name is also partial to CAPITALISATION. (Why is Bek and Sungki immune to this?)


...wait, what? Okay I guess this is the guy who wants to chop down trees.


Bek dislikes this!


'What is it'? What is what, Bek?


In other words - 'we don't need these magical living portals to other parts of the world!' Or, well, we don't need thing like that anyway.


An alternate translation of Bek's jump.




I guess so!


A real you!!


Then his e-monster lands. Not-Sandslash, why can't you fly?


Woah suddenly perspective of the rival in an overly-pic fashion!

...Man, no offence, BOUNDARY, but... you ugly. =(


Also it does not match his sprite that vest-or-whatever was white and black. =/


This actually looks kinda cool though!


He's Knd Sky. y!

...Oh bugger that means he's strong against Not-Sandslash. He's also stronger than any of our monsters in level.



Time to point out a flaw in Telefang - despite having evolved pinky's name remains the same as his first stage's name...rather than this:

Anyways!



The other two monsters arrive straightaway, and hence you might, with it being a 3-on-1 battle in our favour, think this will be an easy battle.


Hahahaha....nope.


And despite having a type disadvantage, Not-Sandslash is the hardest-hitting out of the e-monsters on our side. Well bugger.


And there goes him, because ANJIOSI is faster than everything else and thus can move twice before them at times!


Luckily this guy is on our side - time to exploit the broken status system!


I can't say I blame him there for being afraid.


Although he usually recovers the turn after, it takes the full turn...


Allowing BANLES - whatever it is - to attack...


While we show that the best way to win a fight is to have a pink elephant-with-tentacle creature shout very loudly at the opponent!


Almost there!


Luckily pinky here is also surprisingly bulky.


Unfortunately, he manages to miss. With the attack 'hit'.

A few more misses and hits endured though, and:


\o/ I will say that I was kinda lucky that SHOUT worked as much as it had in the battle though - usually this is quite a tough battle (unless you specifically train some e-monsters which would have had a type advantage).


And then our opponent disappears, but not BOUNDARY.


Where's the full stop or exclamation mark? =(


Bek agrees.


"Just over-sized strange looking creatures with phones!"


This says something about Bek's other friends...


BOUNDARY seems slow to catch on.


...Yes, you lose today.


Then he uses the tree to leave. I guess if he can't chop it down, he might as well use it? Anyways we now will not see Boundary for half a game. No, really. Great rival, huh?


Bek realises BOUNDARY stole his wallet.


This is basically becoming a catch-phrase, isn't it.


...But...okay, first he tells us that this guy was coming somehow and now goes back to 'durr hurr what's going on over there'.


Bek has many more jumps to make in the future of this game. Many, many more.


I wonder if Boundary had brought an [AXE]?


Gotta love Sungki - 'that sucks but hey you should go visit this city!!!' And...what guards?


And then he hangs up.


Well it's not like we have anything better to do! Check out that name of the city btw... yeesh.


So concludes this part! The next contains a lot of shops and a competition! Excitement!


(The YOU'RE KILLING THE TREES image is from hiimdaisy comics, yo).

Glad you enjoyed!

Oh, and if the music files don't work please let me know because I couldn't check because of this ficky internet connection.

Part Twelve: The City of Shops
Or...well, a lot of shopping and acquiring the killer pony.

Spoiler:


Let's check out this place...


You can tell when towns look the same to each other. Same sort of grass, path, etc so far for each one! It's also got the same overworld theme... although that's not necessarily bad because it's a catchy theme. And oh look, it's one of those politician people. =|


No Bek, don't talk to him it's a trap!


>_<


Doesn't look like they gathered here.


Bek sure is excited about the fungi gathering! Notice how Not-Sandslash is keeping his distance from the two.


(What's the rule then?). Anyways, I don't think it's that funny. =/


Screw the forest, we can have our large battles between creatures wherever we please! Although I am sceptical about having a telephone battle there. =/


...Come out?


Maybe it just means 'jump'.


Well done for having that name? "Congratulations, you sure earned it."


This just comes off as weird personally, the way Bek is declaring his happiness. I bet it's this politician's fault. =(


I like how he ignored the question.


Hmm, just maybe, Bek, just maybe...

Spoiler:


As a note, why do they have different coloured hats....?

However Bek stops dwelling on this and instead GOES SHOPPING. Because tbh there's not that much of interest here and the competition serves very little - well, nothing - to the confusing plot here.


.

A technology-themed store! Other gadgets include Video, Computer and Mouse. Not very interesting and one wonders why you can buy them when you cannot use them yourself.


As a minor note, a red-hat guy now appears in the green-hat pollie's place! Abuh. But a phone call...?


...No, not really?


They must be too busy telling Bek to get more friends or chasing political careers.


...STORM wants a computer. Right.

But how about that - look at a computer in a shop, and they call you about it just like with the bomb. This never happened before when I played the game, I'm pretty sure. =/


Maybe Bek is not the only one who is SO HAPPY about a phone competition.


More engrish, please.


Great competition. But he doesn't quite tell the truth - everyone else in the competition just stands still and waits for you to battle. =/

Let's look at that other shop!


Ma-gun? Machine gun.


This sure is a strange shop. Machine guns, Sabres...


...Why is this in the shop.


MUSA probably already has one himself.


Yeah, I'll just buy these, thanks.


Easy in what way? Did he give you the winnings?


Rare things!? Like what, the Guide to Speaking English Good? Clearly this guy already has that because his sentence is all right, but the previous person...he needs it in this way.


Yay pointless houses.


The Politicians! But... [Clean vote]?


How specific.


"With this, even you can be a ninja!"


Battery...for what?


More of thes P-cards. They're actually good for grinding for exp later on in the game but not so much now.


I guess it's better than a shop selling machine guns...


The owl's name shows up again!


Ah, the usual NPC-blocks-the-next-route ploy. With extra engrish. I guess we will over the competition before go ahead from here by pass through then.


And this guy confirms that that way being blocked is what we will go by after the competition. It takes us to Palan.


Thanks, random e-monster!


Boy I sure am excited by these phone calls.


I bet he's a advertiser. Not a very convincing feature for a new phone though - that's it?

As for the fourth shop:

I hope it's just a toy crane. You know, instead of a real one... Actually a real one would be kinda cool to have. Unfortunately the tire is as big as the crane. At least these are named normally, but...


What the frell is a Tsita.


So much for moon rock or stone or whatnot - no, the translation is Luna.

One would be forgiven for forgetting this is a game about making monsters fight for you by getting their phone number.

Nobody else says anything of interest here and so we go into the forest!


So much for taking a shortcut. At least the Engrish here is consistent...?

Now, you can encounter wild e-monsters here before taking on the competitors (which helps because they can come to the battle straightaway instead of 2-3 turns or more to just arrive. Grinding is a good idea though because of one specific wild e-monster who will mess you up badly without some grinding but is the best friend to have.

To demonstrate!


They're of the land type and have no mercy.


So you start the battle with having to wait for your other two e-monsters.


It's faster than you.


Its attack animation is always fun to watch. (It looks far better than this gif).


Bam, half your health.

So how much damage can you do to it?



Even if its defences aren't that great it doesn't matter.

It also has access to a move called GRIND which is basically the same as SHOUT is if ever you don't feel like just winning straightaway it can just status you instead.

So yeah, grinding is needed! (You have little access to type advantages over it too. Of course one could just use a really fast one to be able to run away from it in battles, but that's no fun).


Stop interrupting my grinding.


Ah, it's 'inane questions time'! Let's say yes.


See, that statement makes no sense! Neither do the options! AAAAA


Thanks... I guess? Selecting the first option to both apparently was the right thing to do!


I like how he's telling me about an item that won't do anything.


Well, who wouldn't want a ray gun?


"Why do you keep calling me?" and "Now I want a ray gun."

During said grinding I had a few more encounters, one which involved me getting it down to 1 HP from a critical hit only for it to run away. But then:


And so:


And with some luck:


Yay! And if you think MLP is awesome:


Whelp time to win a competition.


Not shown - a walking-around-the-clearing sequence. And why is it 'call me' when you're standing a metre apart from each other. Kids these days...


This battle stars tree trunks and some water.


The only place where we get lots of unique trainer sprites! As a note - they get weirder.



(The game doesn't consider the competition battles to be that important apparently).


Normally the type-disadvantage would be a worry.


And so ends the battle.


This guy wishes he had an awesome horse.


One down.

There's other wild e-monsters of note - maybe not power-wise, but say:


WHAT IS IT


Whatever he is, he's pretty smart!


For thos who do not know: "The oxter is the part of the human body right under the joint where the arm joins the shoulder." Pity wikipedia had to mention 'human body' because this surely isn't human. =(


Ah, but do you have an overpowered horse?


No, you just look weird.


Ah, the owl as mentioned!


That was fun.


Not-Sandslash sure is enjoying this.


And now he's about to become more useful!


I like how the only changes are a few more spikes, some shield-things to his arms, a bit more weight and the B changed to a P. At least BigMon is accurate! Dos this make Not-Sandslash Slightly-More-Not-Sandslash?


Straightforward dex entry here.


They seem oddly happy about losing.

I'll just end it here then - the rest of the competition shall be covered in the next update!

Hurrah - I thought they should work as I already used them but one never knows when you cannot test it. =(

Next part maybe in the next before days before uni because I already have the pictures.

Or seeing how weird some trainer sprites get.

Spoiler:


Last off we beat the 2nd person and Not-Sandslash evolved and got a bit of weight and a P to his name. Onwards to more victory!


Do you?


Is that a yes?




Try looking at that expression closely there. She seems very...surprised or something.


Go, Dodo's cousin!


This'll be easy.


Surprisingly it is a water type and so ends the quickest third round ever.


I suppose we know how the Dodo went extinct!


Damn straight!


IDK why they keep telling me to 'keep moving' to get to the next round... Maybe they think that I'd just stand there?


Hey let's continue standing here and-wait-


.................
The owl happen again, of ALL PLACES!


So he wants to be more machine-like?


Okay, thanks for telling me - I'll be sure not to give him that.


Aww, no short cuts allowed here either in this way. =(


...Sorry that you're sick? Just don't sneeze on me.


And this part of the comp is where the trainer sprites get especially weird. I mean, look at him. And he's called NOISY as well...

What him riding a tiny car has to do with him having 'got a cold' though is beyond me.


Naturally his first e-monster is the one that looks like a beheaded monkey. =(


Thanks for the hint!


The battle wasn't very exciting with Not-Sandslash and Killer Pony.


Jumpity jump-jump.


Gee, it's not my fault you have a bad cold - stop trying to make me feel sorry. =(

He also walks away unlike his sprite suggesting he has a car I don't even. =/


Encountered this guy in the wild but I did not get his number. I kinda like his look though.


Wait, why are there two people here?


So... the T fungi gentlemen the top alternates...to what?


Fine I'll let you finish.


What, that's it? Okay, can do!


Why are you still jumping.


Uh...who are you talking to?


WHY DO YOU KEEP JUMPING


So are we to fight...?


aaaaaaaaaaaaa


...So you're reporters? Reporters in uncomfortable poses?

I...I don't understand.


Why does this bird's leg not actually attach to the body correctly what.

Now, this battle actually is harder because they have more than one e-monster at the start! =o


I kinda feel sorry for the poor thing.


And then it fires petals or...something at me. =/ It's very fast but that's basically it, besides the type advantage thing.


Strangest looking 'mouth' attack there...it also should have attacked Not-Sandslash but I'm not complaining about bad AI!


Now, this is a neat move here. It doesn't do that much damage, but it has a decent chance of this:


And it can't do anything until it heals itself - like being scared from Shout. And that takes up an entire turn in itself!


See?


Yeah, while you're there...


Somehow it survives!


Not for long though.


Go!, says the OSIE, as it raises its defence. =/


Oh no it's doing something!


It looks like it could be-


...Oh. Like anything in this game needs more of that.


Bye.


Okay.


There's nothing quite as satisfying as winning by using Hoof, seriously.


\O/


Sore losers.


I guess they came from the ocean...? Anyways they disappear and we continue onward!


Two questions with the same answer:

WINNING.


Or jumping if you're Bek, I guess.


So winning.


Bek... at this stage everyone here is being called T Mildew. =(


I wonder why this guy stayed here. I mean, if he walks in, he would win!


Instead he prefers jumping at Bek.


What a...strange looking guy.


This guy is an evolution of OSIE.

No, really.


3-on-2 battle initially so it's kinda in our favour, although you'd think with this being the final battle it may be harder than the previous.


Oh wait.


How about...


Winning.


No, buy your own alcohol to drown your own sorrows away! I'm too busy winning.


Why are you here.


No seriously why are you here.


Damn straight, Bek.


...Yes, we've already realised.


THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO KNOW!


I like how it became a [term!].


"I'm just a hard working honest man! I have five kids!"


Bek being smart?


...Change Jimmy?


And he makes a run for it. Should we go stop him, Bek?


Clearly he has more important things on his mind.


WHAT COULD IT BE


...


That's it?


OUR PHONE NOW HAS A PURPLE/PINK TINGE TO IT

AMAZEMENT

Worst competition ever.


And it doesn't stop these spam calls either!


Well naturally if you have a Ray gun you're able to kill stuff quicker!


Strange place for an autograph, but okay!

Let's start heading to the next place then, I guess!


God darn it. If anything this new phone is worse!


WHY ARE YOU ALL TELLING ME TO GIVE YOU GUNS SERIOUSLY


I guess that'll be in the next update thanks to Netaro here. (Hey, isn't he supposed to be delivering water anyway...?)

I don't know I understood any of the new development in the plot at all but I want to play this game. I don't know why though but I do think it is because I really want to play game boy games recently. Anyways this was a great part but the first music file didn't work

I was a young child when I was trying to understand it myself. XD

And odd about that, seeing it's the same coding as the one in the previous update. =/ But now it works after replacing it with the exact same thing!

Also have another update.

Part Fourteen: Entering The Desert!
Or discovering that birds and snakes don't like each other.

Spoiler:


So last time we won the competition and Netaro finally stopped talking to us. Let's get out of this unfortunately-named 'city'. Or M-City.


...And we begin with someone (maybe Bek?) shouting about what. Damn it! I hate whats. >:[


Maybe it was this bird though.


No Bek you said What. =(


Well... given snakes are known to eat birds (and vice versa in cases) is this surprising?


Bek derps a herp.


One - I like how he ignores the question.
Two - oh god. 'start a new life in Virgina'.

Engrish, how you amaze me.


Uh, bye then? I guess he can't wait.


[Is it?]


And then he leaves after the Farewell Jump.


At least it's clear what you should do here, but first we'll explore this little stretch.
Head into the ocean for instance, and...


...We find ourselves by Bamu sea! Or well, outside its barriers. Let's check that map now that we have filled it in a bit...


So M-city is to the west of the sea and Alice, while Tulunk and Kelina is on the left side of the map. Teleporting trees, how do they work.


...How exciting? =/ There's nothing in the water at any rate.


Yay, Palan is near already.


Okay...? Maybe that's why this guy is standing outside of it then.


But first a slight detour to a house I recall.


Or well, cave-house. At any rate idk why it's here but I suppose it is worth showing.


Why is that, random NPC?


Too much...? And because of that he put [something] here. Uh, okay.



Why is this important.


And that's all you find out from here. This always confused me.


Oh not you.


I never said that. =/

Anyways I also discovered some different e-monsters in this area I didn't know were here before.


Like this guy! If you want awkward designs, look no further than HERIOPS. Unfortunately i didn't get his number in that instance.


I got bird-head's number though!


So in other words it pecks stuff.

Other creatures included some ones we have also seen before:



With BAIBU:


And after a while:

...A bottle in its shoulder? Uh.

And during that all:

\o/

I could switch to BAZERI and make the game very easy (except in sections with necessary grinding) but I'll be sticking with Not-Sandslash.


Oh look, a welcoming committee!


Are you blind? =|


Bird, there's a snake right next to you, you know. =/

(The bird family)

...They really don't like each other. =/


At least this fellow has an okay grasp of English, isn't rude or blind.



Different town music! It's alright I suppose.


However this seems to be the bird's side of town. It also has a shop!


You never know when you need to clean up that sand in the desert.


It's a desert - what are you going to chop down, cacti? =/


Blah blah generic card item in most stores.


You know, for a world reliant on phones it's a bit odd this is the first time we've seen on being sold...


Look at that, and then realise he's saying the leader of the birds lives north of here. =/


I hope he knows better English than you.


I'm somewhat sceptical of that.


Just their fangs, right?


WOW! REALLY?


I would have never guessed!


Bah.


Snakes are beautiful to you? Also, Bird Snake?





I suppose he meant 'lived'.


Or maybe not? Idk but I guess he was the one who 'said' it. =/


Hello to you too. Why do birds also need to jump?


Yes, you sure are a bird brain.


Bek doesn't like my jokes. =(


Blah Blah Bek then proceeds to repeat what Gangbanao said.


Yeah, we kinda figured that out for ourselves...


...That's a good question!

...


So basically they're having a big war and nobody remembers why.

What.


Bek also thinks this is stupid.


FRIENDSHIP SOLVES EVERYTHING


???


Everyone loves making Bek do stuff for them.


Silly Bek.


But at least we get something from it? I hope it's better than the last prize. =/

Let's see what everyone else thinks of our plans.


I consider you as [The speaker of engrish].


Then you can sit in a tree and the snakes could drink all the water! =D


Croaked?


Well you're a stick in the mud. =(

Nobody else in this town is on any interest either.


Uh... screw you.


Oh look, snakes! Time to begin Operation FRIENDSHIP!

...In the next update!
