Bonus Chapter - Final Team Setup
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This is the last time we'll be seeing the Snakewood-Dark Rising saga cast, so every Pokemon character in let's plays past this one will either be brand new or re-interpretations of old ones.

I'm actually a little sad about that.

Main Team:

Spoiler:


#1: Ignell
  • Species: Charizard
  • Gender: Male
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 100
  • Type: /
  • Ability: Tough Claws (Increases the damage of moves that do direct contact)
  • Held Item: Charcoal
  • Final Stats (mega):
    • HP- 283
    • Attack- 245
    • Defense - 175
    • Sp. Attack - 388(!!)
    • Sp. Defense - 240
    • Speed- 220
  • Moves:
    • Move 1 - Flamethrower
    • Move 2 - Roost
    • Move 3 - Air Slash
    • Move 4 – Shadow Claw
  • Theme song: Red Hot World (Megaman X5)
  • Idea/Name origin: Original concept
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: N/A
  • Met at: That house at the beginning at level 20. (It says the Core Region in-game for some reason? The hell?)
  • Overall analysis:
    • In a complete 180 from his performance in Dark Rising 2, Ignell was the MVP of this. His Mega evolved state and the fact he was the most reliable Pokemon before Signe and Ragnarok showed up made him the best.
    • His Special attack is bananas, but I also adore how he had Roost to heal off damage without using up items. That mattered a lot more now than ever, especially with the limited resources.
#2: Signe
  • Species: Lugia Lucario fusion
  • Gender: Female
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 100
  • Type: /
  • Ability: Synchronize (Passes status effects such as paralysis, burning, poison, etc. back to the attacker)
  • Held Item: None
  • Final Stats:
    • HP- 339
    • Attack- 257
    • Defense - 224
    • Sp. Attack - 297
    • Sp. Defense - 245
    • Speed- 249
  • Moves:
    • Move 1 - Void Bomb
    • Move 2 - Psychic (replaced by Oblivion Wing)
    • Move 3 - Aura Saber
    • Move 4 – Roost
  • Theme song: Schala's Theme (Chrono Trigger - Normal) / Trap Factory (Megaman ZX - Battle)
  • Idea/Name origin: Is named after the heroine from Norse Mythology (Signe)
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: Signe.
  • Joined team: At Apache Mountain at level 50.
  • Overall analysis:
    • Signe makes her return and in a big way this time. Since Sigurd's dead in this timeline, she does his job as the super-cheating measure instead.
    • Aura Saber is actually Special this time around to accommodate for Signe's higher special attack and she possesses Void Bomb to boot.
    • The moment where she has to save Siegfried from being a Darkmon was her high point, although I kind of wish she got a lil' bit more screentime.
#3: Ragnarok
  • Species: Yveltal
  • Gender: Male
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 100
  • Type: /
  • Ability: Gale Wings (Gives priority to flying type moves)
  • Held Item: None
  • Final Stats:
    • HP- 390
    • Attack- 243
    • Defense - 215
    • Sp. Attack - 295
    • Sp. Defense - 214
    • Speed- 237
  • Moves:
    • Move 1 - Oblivion Wing
    • Move 2 - Void Bomb
    • Move 3 - Roost
    • Move 4 – Sucker Punch
  • Theme song: La Danse Macabre (Shovel Knight)
  • Idea/Name origin: Is named after the series of apocalyptic events in Norse Mythology that wind up killing the gods.
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: N/A
  • Joined team: Apache Mountain at level 50.
  • Overall analysis:
    • Damn, son. So... Ragnarok is the Yveltal that Noah encountered during the course of 2 that we would have never gotten to see had I not fixed some things.
    • He's the death to Xerneas's life and he means it.
    • Due to the absence of Dark Aura, I had to fill it in with Gale Wings... we have a priority Giga Drain wielded by a legendary, folks. That's disgusting.
    • He's practically overpowered and he's a chill death god to boot.
#4: Ivan
  • Species: Manectric
  • Gender: Male
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 83
  • Type:
  • Ability: Intimidate (Halves enemy attack)
  • Held Item: Nothing
  • Final Stats (mega):
    • HP- 215
    • Attack- 142
    • Defense - 151
    • Sp. Attack - 253
    • Sp. Defense - 141
    • Speed- 240
  • Moves:
    • Move 1 - Discharge
    • Move 2 - Quick Attack
    • Move 3 - Snarl
    • Move 4 – Flame Burst
  • Theme song: Meltdown 2 (Cave Story)
  • Idea/Name origin: Nothing in particular
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: None
  • Met at: Vendell Town at level 20
  • Overall analysis:
    • Ivan would have been cooler if he was more useful from the start - I like Manectric.
    • His claim to fame is killing a level 30 Blastoise as an Electrike and destroying the Evil Kyogre at the extended ending - other than that, he was just sitting in the back with Rodrigo.
#5: Rodrigo
  • Species: Lucario
  • Gender: Male
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 91
  • Type: /
  • Ability: Adaptability (Boosts same type attacks)
  • Held Item: Black Belt
  • Final Stats (mega):
    • HP- 243
    • Attack- 291
    • Defense - 153
    • Sp. Attack - 304
    • Sp. Defense - 156
    • Speed- 213
  • Moves:
    • Move 1 - Vacuum Wave
    • Move 2 - Close Combat
    • Move 3 - Bullet Punch
    • Move 4 – Bulk Up
  • Theme song: Jake's Theme (Advance Wars: Dual Strike)
  • Idea/Name origin: A character from the FFTA let's play
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: N/A
  • Met at: Redwood Field at level 26
  • Overall analysis:
    • Rodrigo could have easily been the second most badass Pokemon in the team had Ignell not stolen the limelight.
    • If he got a real chance to show off his Mega Lucario-ness, I doubt even Signe would be able to catch up to him - hell, he has more special attack than her despite that being her thing.
    • Oh well.
    • He was totally into her, but it sorta went nowhere due to the game being so short.
    • Thetis used to be his friend, but that was seriously just an excuse to bring in the canned Darkrai Glaceon sprite I didn't use in 2.
#6: Sapphire
  • Species: Carbink
  • Gender: Female
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 24
  • Type: /
  • Ability: Clear Body (Prevents stat reduction)
  • Held Item: None
  • Final Stats:
    • HP- 64
    • Attack- 31
    • Defense - 80
    • Sp. Attack - 33
    • Sp. Defense - 71
    • Speed- 33
  • Moves:
    • Move 1 - Reflect
    • Move 2 - Light Screen
    • Move 3 - Dazzle
    • Move 4 – N/A
  • Theme song: Radiant Ruins (Yume 2kki)
  • Idea/Name origin: The gemstone of the same name.
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: Here.
  • Met at: Vendell Town at the same level
  • Overall analysis:
    • Sapphire was a temp Mon at best, but she did do a good job setting up Dual Screens so we don't get murdered by Mega Sableye.
#7: Carmille
  • Species: Diancie
  • Gender: Female
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 100
  • Type: /
  • Ability: Clear Body (Prevents stat reduction)
  • Held Item: None
  • Final Stats (mega):
    • HP- 231
    • Attack- 315
    • Defense - 254
    • Sp. Attack - 339
    • Sp. Defense - 256
    • Speed- 233
  • Moves:
    • Move 1 - Moonblast
    • Move 2 - Power Gem
    • Move 3 - Calm Mind
    • Move 4 – Dazzle
  • Theme song: Shieldner Sheldon Stage (Megaman X6)
  • Idea/Name origin: The name is a derivative of Carnelian, a red variety of Chalcedony gemstones
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: Here.
  • Met at: Apache Mountain at level 30
  • Overall analysis:
    • Best legendary.
    • I absolutely love Diancie for not only being adorable, but also because their mega form is one of the most comfortable Pokemon for me to use. Magic Bounce is always wonderful.
    • Carmille may be a reprise of the Diancie from the seventeenth movie, but that sort of comes with the territory.
#8: Umbra
  • Species: Absol
  • Gender: Male
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 94
  • Type:
  • Ability: Super Luck (Critical hits land more often)
  • Held Item: None
  • Final Stats: I actually don't remember and my last save with the high levels was after the point of no return. He wasn't on my team, so oops.
  • Theme song: Riku (Kingdom Hearts II)
  • Idea/Name origin: Original concept
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: N/A
  • Joined team: Vendell Town at level 23.
  • Overall analysis:
    • I find it incredibly surreal that the only Snakewood LP-era Pokemon to make a cameo in this is Umbra. Even more so when you realize this is the second zombie apocalypse he's been shoved in.
    • It's a shame he never really got a chance to show off his skills - he didn't even get a cool fight like Rodrigo or Ivan.
#9: Julian
  • Species: Greninja
  • Gender: Male
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 70
  • Type: /
  • Ability: Torrent (Increases the strength of Water moves at critical HP)
  • Held Item: None
  • Final Stats: Ditto for this one.
  • Theme song: Sound of Shinobi (Live-A-Live)
  • Idea/Name origin: Nothing in particular
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: N/A
  • Joined team: Amber Cave at level 14
  • Overall analysis:
    • Didn't I give Sound of Shinobi to Shadow the Shedinja before? Whatever.
    • Julian not being all that great is just disappointing because Greninja is damn good. He was getting there at one point thanks to the Experience Share, but I just stopped using him.
#10: Reika
  • Species: Froslass
  • Gender: Female
  • Portrait:
  • Level during the finale: 56
  • Type: /
  • Ability: ... I don't remember.
  • Held Item: None
  • Final Stats: Let's leave this empty too.
  • Theme song: Sasha's Theme (Advance Wars: Dual Strike)
  • Idea/Name origin: Reika is a japanese name that means lovely petal.
    • If applicable, what does said inspiration look like: N/A
  • Joined team: Apache Mountain at level 34
  • Overall analysis:
    • Reika's only here is because I like Froslass. That's about it.
