    OMGZ guys it's that time again, and a BRAND NEW GENERATION IS HERE

    I know some people are getting this today or soon, and I've missed a good diary thread ever since the amazing FFXII one many moons ago.

    So who's playing? :o

    NOT WORTH IT

    I think I'm going to get that fire pig thing when I get going, traditionally Fire is a good type to start with isn't it?

    Manic-depressive otter? Yes that one had caught my eye

    I want to nurture in the way I never could nurture myself :bored:

    Fire and Water if you want an easy ride, Grass if you want a challenge is the usual thing.

    Oh I started! I feel a bit dozy so I just did the intro bit.

    I picked Oshawott (water otter). I hope it serves me well and learns ice moves later so I can take down dragons

    Just completed the first gym. A bit of a familiar BORE so far I have to say.

    I did however catch my FIRST EVER SHINY :disco: Was quite shocked as I've played all the games quite extensively several times and I've never come across one then on my fifth or something wild battle along comes a shiny Patrat (trust me to get the crap annoying Pokemon though :( )

    Heading towards the second gym

    Pignite - Lv. 21
    Tympole - Lv 16
    Blitzle - Lv. 14
    Woobat Lv. 12

    Thinking of dropping Blitzle though as I don't like single type Pokemon

    Are you using moonshell software on your r4? There's an update my nephew put in that gets around the latest security like they have for new games like sonic colours and wario ware diy. Be careful though, mine fucked up recently and I only fixed it by going back to the older software

    Vote in the POLL guys, those with woobats, are you on Black?

    Just got my first badge and am now dicking around in the dreamyard. It's making me feel naughty playing in an old ruining building, I hope Mom doesn't find out :shy:

    Oshawott lv 15
    Pansear lv 12
    Lillipup lv 10
    Patrat lv 11
    Purrloin lv 8
    Munna lv 10

    Took ages levelling up shitty patrat from lv2, eventually got it to lv 7 and bumped into a lv 10 one, so I swapped them around

    Just caught Victini. What a fucking ORDEAL that was.

    It gets really fun once you get to Castelia City, it's a totally different locale to what we're used to. What is all this survey shit? I'm a bit DUBIOUS of that Scientology-like cult who keep pressing me to do MARKET RESEARCH.

    Team Plasma are hysterical. They're like the Britney loons of the Pokemon world.

    Well my only criticism so far is that it's really not THAT different from the older games, but since you've not had all those years playing similar games you'll be fine!

    OMG POKEMON PARTY AT WENDY'S

    It's a good entry-level game, maybe they do this everytime and I forgot, but they are really walking you through the important lessons while you are playing, like type advantages etc. You do get more obvious instructions too though, someone will run up to you and go "OMG did you know you can heal Pokemon by taking them to the Pokemon Center?"

    The touch screen things are so BAFFLING. that's what I get for not reading the manual I suppose.

    I have just fought a trainer who had a BAG OF RUBBISH as a 'mon.
