#18. Cheren Actually Does A Move Correctly

. . . I guess we'll leave.


What in the?!

You wanna go, lady?!

Music: Battle! Johto Wild Pokémon

What even is that thing?!


Choro Notes: Hansel's Secret Power, when used on grass, has a chance of putting the target to sleep. Convenient!

You have serious issues, lady!


Each Zoroark has the ability to fool a large group of people simultaneously. They protect their lair with illusory scenery. Bonds between these Pokémon are very strong. It protects the safety of its pack by tricking its opponents. Stories say those who tried to catch Zoroark were trapped in an illusion and punished.
Choro Notes: Oh Zoroark. Game Freak really tried to make you the next Lucario but look at you. Zoroark are kind cool, but they're just bigger Zorua. Oddly: does not have a tail. Go figure.
Zorak Notes: Great it's a kitsune werewolf JUST WHAT THE WORLD NEEDED. More seriously, probably my least favorite Gen V design? He is hella anime.
HulkaMatt Notes: ZOROAROAROAORAK IS A MAGICAL KITSUNE. IN IT'S SPARE TIME IT LIKES TO PLAY PARCHEESI. When it's not playing Parcheesi you can sometimes see them doing magical things, like speaking in anime films. I really don't know what to say so I said that instead. vOv
Dr. Dos named this.


wanted to keep people away from its lair."
was tricked as well."

I don't see why . . .

Choro Notes: What you're not seeing is the shiny Entei in my party. This event is specially triggered if you bring certain shiny Entei, Raikou or Suicune with you to Lostlorn Forest. Zoroark will disguise as the monster with the type advantage (or Entei if you brought Raikou). I released the Entei immediately after this so congrats. ONE MORE TIME BECAUSE THIS ALWAYS SEEMS TO CONFUSE PEOPLE: I CHEATED TO TRIGGER THIS EVENT. IT DOES NOT OCCUR UNLESS CRITERIA IS MET.


Hmm. . .

What a weird day!


Choro Notes: Spring removes snow in certain areas and also there's a chance that certain areas will have rain.

So after a night of thinking it over and consulting the map, mom and Bianca, I concluded I went the wrong way.

Cheren! How are you my friend?

Yep! I'm actually gonna go meet Elesa over here! I think! Maybe!


Music: Battle! Cheren & Bianca

Oh! It evolved!

Cheren, buddy. Your cat is weak to bug. Why would I use a different move? My Whirlipede the Curlipede can't punch!

Here I'll use a different move!




Yeaaah . . .

Alright! Cheren! Don't just curl up! It only works for whirlipede because they're covered in poison spikes!

Whoa! Cheren! Whoa! Nice!

Haha, we'll see!


You did better there at least! You even used attacks!

Since forever, yeah!

Well you didn't have to say it so flatly. . .

Music: Champion Alder

I love festivals! Especially music festivals!

Cheren! Really? You of all people?

He used to be on tv like, all the time

He's just kind of being awesome, he does that! You should try to be as awesome as he is!

aren't you?"

Such a gentleman!

Cheren! Did you just tell Champion Alder that you're gunning for his job?!

". . . shit."

CHEREN! Have you really not paid any attention to what Champion Alder has done?!

"I mean, it's not exactly right, or ethical. . . or really socially intelligent.

important, too."

"Uhhhhh. . . "
Cheren shut up and listen to him. He knows what he's talking about.


Thaaaanks Chereeeeen.

Choro Notes: I'll sum it up for you. While Hansel was doing this:

Cheren's Liepard was doing this:

Yes, thank you Cheren. Please listen to what I said about using moves.


looked like they were having fun."
See, Cheren?

Choro Notes: Everyone pay attention to what Alder just said.

views, but so be it! Give it some thought."


. . . Mr. Alder, did you really pull all those buses full of donations for the food bank? Just you and your Bouffalant? Cause I think that is so cool.

acknowledge each other and be together!"
. . . so cool.

Choro Notes: See if you can guess her other two monsters. Hey guess what you're probably right.

Ah, so perfect and elegant!

Choro Notes: Item Maniacs
Around Unova, certain people are fans of certain types of items. They'll pay generally a lot more for said items than a PokéMart would. Case in point, this maid will buy anything edible. Fresh Water, Berries, etc. But the big money items are:

That's the same price as PokéMarts buy Nuggets for.

There's an item I've been finding and never using!

Sure I'll pass up on two Audino fights for 10000.


Choro Notes: He uses Blitzle.

Really, why wouldn't I?

D: I'll treasure it!
Choro Notes: This is actually a prop for the musicals. Great.

Monster check!

You look so regal . . .

Choro Notes: Cinccino is the rare, rustling grass monster in this area. There we go!


Cinccino's white fur feels amazing to touch. Their fur repels dust and prevents static electricity from building up. Cinccino's body is coated in a special oil that helps it deflect attacks, such as punches.
Choro Notes: Cinccino are pretty cute! They're also tiny for a final stage evolution!
Zorak Notes: Death to the pokémon aristocracy
HulkaMatt Notes: Cinccino is really concerned about making a fashion statement. NOBODY WEARS SCARFS IN THE SUMMER, CINCCINO!!!
DrakeLake named this.

Sorry! I had to catch a chinchilla!


Ah, I'm sure we'll get along.

. . . I heard Alder built an orphanage entirely out of discarded Crustle stones. Then he saved all of the orphans when that earthquake caused it to collapse on itself.

Also planes!

Choro Notes: As you walk across this bridge shadows can appear. Sometimes you find feathers:

Feathers increase a specific stat's EV by 1 point but aren't limited to a maximum cap for them like using vitamins do. You can't break the EV limit but you can get over the vitamin-using limit. There's also a seventh feather, the Pretty Wing, that does nothing but get sold for 100. The other thing you can find at shadows is:

Oh! A Duck!


Ducklett are better at swimming than flying. These bird Pokémon are excellent divers. They swim around in the water eating their favorite food—peat moss. When attacked, it uses its feathers to splash water, escaping under cover of the spray.
Choro Notes: I think . . . I would rather use a Wingull . . .
Zorak Notes: Hey, a duck.
HulkaMatt Notes: Ducklett is a duck, therefore a must for any Pokémon trainer.

Can't wait to get to the other side!
