We're gonna be the best spies ever, guys. Just watch.

Seriously though, last time on Dark Rising we went through the ~spooky~ section of the game and found out Noah turned cuckoo crazy. Now we're going to go gambling.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/3etFr8t.png[/IMG][IMG]https://i.imgur.com/d0oCDB1.png[/IMG]

Our friends are taking part in the fun too. Dray definitely seems like the kind to ruin his wallet, so I'll leave him to it.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/G3FiNJS.png[/IMG]

May doesn't say anything really interesting aside from "challenge every gym leader even if it's not important". The casino itself isn't a 'sekret hideout' either unlike the vanilla games - that guy back there wants to trade you Castform for a Xatu.

Not that fair a trade, to be honest...

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/lW6xUXt.png[/IMG]

This fella wants to train alone and is one of the few generous NPCs in Dark Rising.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/NFOFHzk.png[/IMG]

He hands us Rock Smash, to be precise. I don't remember if there's any required HM usage in 2 aside from surfing, but still.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/L5ClBAD.png[/IMG]

Before we check out the Fight Dojo, let's snag a Max Ether.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/JUzDe9V.png[/IMG]

Straight and to the point. I mean, I find it weird to just recycle the dojo from the vanilla Firered all the time. You could totally make a brand new map with a different gimmick, but no.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Ox7MwN7.png[/IMG]

Sorta comes with the territory of being the protagonist of a video game. We have to explore every inch even if it's not necessary.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/nQBXcaf.png[/IMG]

oH that pangoro looks [I]good[/I]

Yikes, the person behind the sprites for this Gen 6 base should have polished them a bit. Then again, I have no real timeframe of when Dark Rising 2 was released. The earliest I could find was March 2013 - a whole [I][B]seven months[/B][/I] before X and Y were even released.

Was the Gen 6 stuff put in the game after the fact or is DRG a timelord?

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/pXQjLJk.png[/IMG]

Wrong person to say that to, buddy.

[B][One beatdown later][/B]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/t6ro2ni.png[/IMG][IMG]https://i.imgur.com/TxkcLpn.png[/IMG]

Hey, they at least tried to spice things up by having a chick as the master instead.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/JvK3O63.png[/IMG]

She's a sprite from Ruby/Sapphire that's not mangled at least. Hooray, I guess...?

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/1E1XoMP.png[/IMG]

I don't think this fight would be hard even without the Super-Lucario.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/4XU83an.png[/IMG]

Also, Hawlucha straight-up has no shading. That's pretty bad, made even worse that it fits with the other sprites with no shading in this series.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/whnmNyW.png[/IMG]

She lets us have a Hawlucha for our troubles. Good deal too because I actually really like the luchador bird thing.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/6KGBOLY.png[/IMG]

Never mind then. I don't feel like making a new character slot anyway, so [IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/gif/c3003f9ff80b4f709a06e7037533903d_r.gif[/IMG]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/2zNxo4X.png[/IMG]

This is one of the few "mini-areas" I brought up in the last chapter. The Astraeus Garden is the smaller of the two and doesn't really offer much.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/EmiKIxV.png[/IMG][IMG]https://i.imgur.com/wTH7stL.png[/IMG]

For example, all it took was fighting a bunch of horribly underprepared trainers (I say that for anybody who has to fight Sigurd) and that's it. At the very least you get some very nice things at the end. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/NyVgXhL.gif[/IMG]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/kfxxLXF.png[/IMG]

This guy sucker-punches you when you get into the other place, so I don't quite appreciate that.[IMG]https://imgfast.net/users/3812/17/14/70/smiles/2261377180.gif[/IMG]

[B][One pimp-slap later][/B]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/0kWhFr2.png[/IMG]

I hate it when someone says this despite the fact you beat them three ways to Sunday.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/2jQXZdf.png[/IMG]

Anyway, the Fight Dome is definitely more involved than the garden, but... it's just more fighting-type Pokemon. I'd rather not.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/tVXv05H.png[/IMG]

I still can't believe they went with Feather.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/bzZZ2Zi.png[/IMG]

Hallelujah, we finally got rid of Earth Power. Corin is now super-good again.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Aqr6BSA.png[/IMG]

[I]"This gym leader's name is Feather. She uses flying type Pokemon, so you know what to do."[/I]

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/b0de91363f314e07a97ad97a1829c590_r.png[/IMG]: [I]"Zap 'em, freeze 'em or knock 'em down with rocks."[/I]

This conversation amuses me for some reason.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/qveIXJk.png[/IMG]

Thankfully we have not one, but two Electric types on the team.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/WkpkRrq.png[/IMG]

At least the people in this gym are sneaky enough to throw curveballs like Gliscor to anybody who doesn't have an Ice type.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/h25gFdS.png[/IMG]

Then there's this poor sap that demonstrates how not-scary Gyarados becomes when you have good Electric Pokemon. You'd think a giant city-destroying serpent would get more respect than this, but nah.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Seu3n4p.png[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/135qnpo.gif[/IMG]

I'll just leave it at that.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/js8NrLF.png[/IMG]

... She has a Santa hat.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/KKNqSS3.png[/IMG]

She's not even plot required so I'll just cut straight to the fight.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/O9H9XZj.png[/IMG]

Wow Caitlin, you've seen better days. Shame too because she was like my favorite Unova Elite Four member aside from Shauntal.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/GudRSg7.png[/IMG][IMG]https://i.imgur.com/euj1e5s.png[/IMG]

That said:

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/QyyREt1.gif[/IMG][I][B]Rude Crude Dudes Alert[/B][/I][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/QyyREt1.gif[/IMG]

She's actually pretty damn tough for some random gym leader. We were around the same levels yet it still took quite a bit to maneuver past her without losing a Pokemon.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/rIMR796.png[/IMG]

Rotom-Fan gets annihilated by Corin though... which is the expected result if you pit an animated fan against a landshark dragon.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/TbuEuq6.png[/IMG]

I've just realized a major weakness Sigurd would have if this were actually Gen 6 - [I]fairy types.[/I] They would counter everything he can throw at them even if Aura Saber is ridiculously overpowered.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/7EtASUQ.png[/IMG]

Then again, Togekiss is still Normal/Flying in this hack because of [I]reasons[/I], so thank god for that.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Bu5ZXI7.png[/IMG]

Braviary is a pain to fight thanks to Brave Bird. Even when they're paralyzed, they were still really terrifying to fight with Ambes.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/1gHs0cv.png[/IMG]

Then again, that's why we have two electric types.

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/67e36a558926f1538461c04aa7df4d2c850da536_r.png[/IMG]: [I]("I got your back, yo.")[/I]

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/9c1404561a974654b742c50804b138bb_r.png[/IMG]: [I]("Thanks for that.")[/I]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Rox5gZm.png[/IMG][IMG]https://i.imgur.com/qh7L0T7.png[/IMG]

Long story short, she hands us Aerial Ace. There is literally nothing else to this - Feather could have been a random-ass trainer in the middle of the woods and the impression would have been the same, mostly because Gym Leaders aren't required to be fought in this game. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/B9AFHac.png[/IMG]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/ZuHKYOv.png[/IMG]

Anyway, we should stop messing around and go to the place where we have to go.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/lKPX1r8.png[/IMG]

I can never get over how something so innocent can end up with a duel to the death.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/NPOEXkV.png[/IMG]

As far as I'm concerned, it was in self-defense. [IMG]https://imgfast.net/users/3812/17/14/70/smiles/215459223.gif[/IMG]

She does mention something about Bulbasaur and Chikorita hanging around here, but if you're at this point of the game then there's no reason to go after them.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/8hAyvoB.png[/IMG]

... That is actually not too far off regarding a person I know. The only time I would lead with Lopunny is if they were mega, but this was way before that was a thing.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/YNwuhrm.png[/IMG]

So not only is this silly, the original line belonged to a gambler. Game Freak edited out the reference to gambling when they were adapting the script from the gameboy games over to FireRed/Leafgreen, hence why gaming doesn't rhyme at all.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/wZfXDvb.png[/IMG]

That is one silly looking Heliolisk and I don't think that was the intention.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/iaKrtjU.png[/IMG]

[I]"There's this guy I'm trying to impress, so don't tell anybody ok?"[/I]

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/b0de91363f314e07a97ad97a1829c590_r.png[/IMG]: "My lips are sealed."

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/F5UDHmz.png[/IMG]

Fun fact: The person who started this fight mentioned that we look silly doing this. I agree 100%.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/kG7iuCl.png[/IMG]

[I]"Tried hitting on me over there. It was so gross."[/I]

Ech. We should probably do something about that.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/JUCvKLO.png[/IMG]

If this were any other series and if Monica wasn't the protagonist, Badass Grandma would have certainly won.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/I40fXCd.png[/IMG]

That said, your reward for beating an old woman('s Pokemon) is being able to [FONT=inherit]access[/FONT][FONT=inherit] the Day-Care Center. That's nice.[/FONT]
[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Z8403gT.png[/IMG][IMG]https://i.imgur.com/gvjFfub.png[/IMG]

Something about that Cyclist's sprite reminds me of a character. I can't pin it down, but it at least looks better than most of the other sprites in the game. (Barring the shoes and the hat, yuck.)

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/iTCpbuO.png[/IMG]

Oh boy, here we go! Team Aqua's finally making their move.

... Not that I can even pretend the grunts will be able to do anything to me.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/u4SAPt0.png[/IMG]

Archie: [I]"Prepare to get washed away, Monica!"[/I]

Short, sweet and to the point. Why can't more of the dialogue in this series be like that?

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/766hAo3.png[/IMG]

I do find it cool how we fight all of the evil team leaders in the game, I just wish that we didn't have to face them in such a stupid way.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Hkpf6k8.png[/IMG]

That said - [I][B]wow what the psyduck?[/B][/I]

What's the level 17 Pupitar for? One, I thought Archie was the water guy. Two, [I]why is it level 17?[/I] Did we catch Archie in the middle of a training session or something?

If that's what's really going on here, then that's amazing.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/EXacoWr.png[/IMG]

That moment when you realize Wailord would be bigger than even the area where we're fighting in.

I also find it strange how DRG changes things to Double Battles from time to time, but at least that keeps things from getting [I]too[/I] boring.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/ILPIf32.png[/IMG]

It is clever how he has a Rotom-Wash even though it'll get ravaged by Grass types.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/n8BpNIT.png[/IMG]

That seems about right. But wait, he still has one more trick up his sleeve...

Behold, another Darkrai-ified Pokemon! Yeah, all of the stronger ones from now on will have stats that add up to 666 because I'm an edgelord, sue me.

So what I figured is that all of the Evil Team Leaders would get one and that they would serve as the dark counterparts to Monica's Pokemon... just to make things more interesting.

Evil Wave is a [IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/f4deeb41ab6d4dfcbd35c03a0e1a7bc7_r.png[/IMG]/[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/d269e8f4639d4eef8cd545a7c1c97fb5_r.png[/IMG] type with, believe it or not:

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Jo43csO.png[/IMG]

Shadow Tag. Yes, really. You better be glad this isn't actually in Dark Rising (aside from the Noivern from earlier) or that I'm not a sadist if we ever had to make a hack of our own.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/KR07v15.png[/IMG]

D-Wave doesn't seem like much since she's alone, but that will change quickly if you don't take her out.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/gKrqUj1.png[/IMG]

On top of having ridiculous health and defenses, she also comes with this fancy Devil Flame attack that is guaranteed to burn you. Hell, it nearly killed Sigurd despite him being the OG super-uber.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/7KwZIKn.png[/IMG]

As a side note, I love it when a series introduces a serious threat that turns out to just be a regular member of a much bigger army. I'm a big nerd, can you blame me?

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/pV6NV6T.png[/IMG]

Anyway, taking out the D-Wave finishes the fight.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/E5KCNJg.png[/IMG]

Archie runs away because he is a big baby and takes his grunts with him. [IMG]https://imgfast.net/users/3812/17/14/70/smiles/3635502756.gif[/IMG]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/14B71YN.png[/IMG]

The entire loser crew is here, so this is going to be some squad-type muk.

[I]"Grunts from various organizations in history have come together, along with their leaders, to build a super group. We believe they're being controlled by Darugis."[/I]

Dray, please. Strong-arming your way through an enemy fortress is only fun when you have an army backing you up.

As good as we are, there's just too many. We're going to have to sneak in, Monica. Take this member's badge - with this, you should be able to walk away in the Utopia without attracting too much attention to yourself. But don't try the guard over there, his sharp eye can detect a fake badge just like that. You're going to have to go in through the basement."[/I]

Cool stuff.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/dduyfLF.png[/IMG]

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/jpg/7ae36ad487d8f771809fc0efa1a64a3b3e6909aa_r.jpg[/IMG]

Basically, we can't heal or buy items because the bad guy mart has badge scanners. Something else about negative energy and the guys leave the scene. We're actually doing something cool for once so I can't really complain.

Why can't in-game Monica be this savage all of the time? [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/DJK96rm.gif[/IMG]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/AhPIE4Z.png[/IMG]

Huh. Would you look at that? The game actually decided to cut out the frustration for us by giving us the Card Key right off the bat.

I guess it's obvious that we're going back into the Not-Silph Co. building again, but this time we're going to have a much easier time getting around.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/ADYK0TS.png[/IMG]

[I]"Don't get in our way!"[/I]

Yikes, even the janitors are hardcore. It's a good thing they're not gonna rat us out or anything.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/l0uVODB.png[/IMG]

Another sky-bound (or in this case, ceiling-bound) enemy Pokemon. How does this keep happening?

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/yxe2wiQ.png[/IMG]

This would make an excellent out-of-context screenshot. Just pass this to your friends and nobody will understand what's happening.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/0t8bEcJ.png[/IMG][IMG]https://i.imgur.com/cm6upft.png[/IMG]

I guess the janitors are here for a reason if there's Trubbish and Muk everywhere. What I am not 100% on is why their garbage is strong enough to fight a vanilla elite four team. Their garbage is that deadly?

[I]Might as well[/I], am I right?

The guys in white are supposed to be Team Plasma grunts, but I figured DRG noticed that Gen 5 sprites look awful when they're put in the same room as the Firered/Ruby sprites.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/0gupXTP.png[/IMG]

They stop us from passing because we're not in uniform and we don't have an assignment. Makes sense, I suppose.

Not gonna lie, this is actually my favorite part of the entire game. We could have totally gone through and done it the boring way (aka. fighting through everyone) so I'm grateful we're using our sneaking skills. Thank you DRG.

This lady tries to teach you Softboiled and nearly gave me a heart attack when she said she saw us before. You don't necessarily want those words coming out of the grunt of a villainous team that's hunting after you.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/3czL0aP.png[/IMG]

[I]"The leaders and the scientists in the Omega Facility aren't telling us grunts anything!"[/I]

... Interesting. What kind of crazy doomsday villain muk are they doing in there?

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/y8ordxG.png[/IMG]

[I]"It's not like we're still holding a grudge from years ago..."[/I]

Awww, that's nice. Two grunts from opposing teams put their differences aside. That sort of reminds me of the scene in the actual Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby where an aqua and magma grunt were secretly hooking up... except you know, it's in Dark Rising.

[I]"In search of a group of young trainers who think they can stop us. It's pretty boring if you're not out on an assignment."[/I]

[B][The Rocket Grunt looks over Sigurd and Monica][/B]

RG: "Say, that's a pretty wicked-looking Lucario you've got there. He sort of looks like one of those weird super-Pokemon that our leaders use. You must be an executive or something, huh?"

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/b0de91363f314e07a97ad97a1829c590_r.png[/IMG]: "... Oh yeah, it wasn't easy. He's a real killer, though." [I]("I'm so sorry, Sigurd.")[/I]

It gets especially terrible/hilarious when you remember Sigurd's like the nicest person in the entire story.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/sVzni8W.png[/IMG]

[I]"We'll be the only ones with Pokemon in the world! Excited?"[/I]

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/b0de91363f314e07a97ad97a1829c590_r.png[/IMG]: [I]"Yep..."[/I]

The motivations of this group confuse me to no end sometimes. That said, I'm still having a lot of fun.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/6bT3eu5.png[/IMG]

[I]"Our leaders destroyed them!"[/I]

Oh damn, is Monica the only person that's not captured? This went south fast.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/ldybf3g.png[/IMG]

[I]"They've got in our way for too long!"[/I]

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/b0de91363f314e07a97ad97a1829c590_r.png[/IMG]: [I]("Yeah, good luck with that, buddy.")[/I]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/MJw1f6N.png[/IMG]

You can go behind this tree to get... a normal Ether. I guess it's better than nothing?

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/ATafX1i.png[/IMG]

[I]"Are we really doing the right thing by killing all Pokemon?"[/I]

[IMG]http://images.yuku.com/image/png/b0de91363f314e07a97ad97a1829c590_r.png[/IMG]: [I]"Hell no - I mean... yes we are!"[/I]

RG: [I]"Right, right!"[/I]

This is darkly humorous and I approve.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/LSK72Q0.png[/IMG]

[I]"Our bosses have found the secret of another Pokemon type. That's the biggest rumor I've ever heard! Like there could really be another type we've never known of for so long. Ha!"[/I]

I swear if this is the Fairy type, I will bust a nut.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/2sOh27k.png[/IMG]

I figured I should show off the bicycle while we're here and [I]christ[/I], who sliced the rocket grunt in half?

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/fEwssXS.png[/IMG]

Ooooh, some R and R. Monica and the guys sort of need it.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/5n0uw7g.png[/IMG]

[I]"I need a hot shower."[/I]

That does sound pretty good, yes.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/rc03h9I.png[/IMG]

Oh my god, more Yugioh.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/KNcxkcO.png[/IMG]

[I]"He heard some ridiculous story about dueling monsters from some spiky haired guy in the Core region. Now he believes monsters inside cards are real!"[/I]

I should probably play The Sacred Cards in the future as an LP.

That said, ugh. Please don't remind me of Pharoah Atem from Dark Rising 1. I still have nightmares of that thing.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/kWnhHBl.png[/IMG]

Except for yourselves apparently. Is it all of them or just the ones you don't use?

A group intent on mass genocide and the part I'm the most focused on first is how many they're going to go after. I sure have my priorities straight. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/teAEVjd.gif[/IMG]

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/u4jggt6.png[/IMG]

[I]"What our leaders are discussing in the facility."[/I]

Given how this LP has gone so far, they've probably deciding on making Darkrai-ified versions of legendaries.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Lv1EEmp.png[/IMG]

[I]"Kinda weird, don'tcha think?"[/I]

Oh right, they do name-drop the fairy typing. I do remember the game being made as a beta that got worked on multiple times... so maybe that explains all the X and Y stuff? I don't know man.

[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/ri6yhcV.png[/IMG]

There's two grunts blocking the way into the facility, so I guess that only leaves us with one option.

Calling[FONT=inherit] it a night. Monica and pals need their full strength to take on the forces of evil. (No, this doesn't count as healing because they stop you in-game)[/FONT]

Next time on Dark Rising 2, we're going to sneak into the deepest part of this scumlord hive and blow it up from the inside. See you then.
