IT BEGINS. So here's the deal. Gen III is my jam. Sapphire was the first Pokemon game I ever played legit, and Emerald is the only Pokemon game I've ever logged more than 100 hours on. AS SUCH, I am understandably pumped for the remakes, and have decided to embark on one last run of the original gangster itself in celebration! This will not be a Nuzlocke run. This will be a completion run- Regi side quests, Battle Frontier, Steven, I'm doin' it all. Everything except completing the National Dex, because fuck that noise. I'll also be running the "set" style of battling, if only so that I don't completely breeze through this. One final note: I went out and snagged a physical cartridge of Emerald from a stranger I found on Craigslist, and was rewarded for my efforts with a fake as shit copy. Hopefully it works! Either way, I'll be documenting my progress with shitty pictures of my screen, as is tradition! (EDIT: Turns out that Craigslist McDickbutt didn't just give me a fake game- he gave me a corrupted one, too. So fuck me, I guess. Mobile version it is!) Alright, here we go! Goin' through the motions. Set my gender (that's a choice in the Pokeverse) and name, introduced myself to the friendly neighbor girl, May Vira, and saved Birch's ass from a friendly puppy. In the process, I obtained the 'mon that started it all. Swampbro. Hell yes. This is where my journey begins. I invite any and all of you reading this to join me and my eternalist of rivals in our trek through the best region in Pokemon, for this will be the playthrough that will PIERCE THE HEAVENS!!!
