#23. Mausoleum

Well, I guess getting you guys all patched up is the most important thing, huh?

Oh! A Sticky Barb?
Choro Notes: Sticky Barbs occasionally appear on wild Ferroseeds. They function like reverse Leftovers. That is, every turn they damage the holder. Why would you give this to a monster to hold? An opponent making contact with the holder has a chance of it getting attached to themselves. Tricky!

Choro Notes: Mistralton's Pokémon Center also has a TM department where they sell all four weather TMs. I really don't need any of these, though . . .

Oh, and we found this thing so!

. . . Huh.


Ill tempered, it fights by swinging its barbed tail around wildly. The leaf growing on its head is very bitter.
Choro Notes: You look so cool but you are somehow the monkey I would least like to use! C'mon Simisage. Step up your game!
Zorak Notes: That . . . actually looks kind of cool. If all the monkeys were like this, it'd be pretty neat.
HulkaMatt Notes: Probably the best looking evolved from of this group of monkeys. Actually, it definitely is. Still doesn't do anything for me.

Well, let's look around!

Music: Papa Juniper

Yyyeeesssss . . . ?

Yeah, sure. I'm pretty trusting and I like your face!

Yessir, for Prof. Juniper!

Its name is Geartie!

. . . oh!

Haha good I'm sure! Right?

"A fellow rockabilly, how novel."

Choro Notes: The update to the Pokédex allows you to see gender differences and form difference on monsters like Deerling and Rotom. It also will allow you to see Shiny forms of any monsters you've seen the shiny of!

Oh! Handy!


Oh! Neat, yeah then. I am all for going to gyms and gym-like locations!


I don't even know how far those are! Pretty far I'd imagine!

freeze like that, and that'd be a shame.

Music: Mistralton City

Pokémon professor."


something I need to take care of first."
on top of the Celestial Tower."
Uh. . . huh? D:/

Good Listener drew the speech bubble

. . . I'm not gonna get to fight you until I come help, aren't I?

Right then.

. . . sure.

Choro Notes: Sky Drop is an interesting move. It's a physical flying-type move that has the user drag the target high into the air, while they're both up there it's just like with Fly. They can't be hit except with Thunder, Sky Uppercut, etc. On the next turn the user fucking throws the target to the ground. The move has a glitch though! If the move Gravity is used while they're in the air, Gravity brings the user down but the target is left in the air in the can't-be-hit-except-for-with-six-moves state. The move is actually banned in random Wi-Fi matches. Shit.

. . . I wonder if I should be concerned about that.

She seems it! Kinda out there, though. Head in the clouds . . oh.

Well who isn't?

Oh, neat!

Choro Notes: Move Relearner
The Move Relearner does exactly what she says she does: if you give her a Heart Scale she can re-teach any level up move to a monster. There's an interesting quirk that evolved monsters have though:

Zsa Zsa can learn Megahorn? Scolipedes learn Megahorn at L.1. You will never encounter a L.1 Scolipede so it never comes up! It's specifically there for the Move Relearner to have! A lot of monsters have really powerful moves they learn this way! Megahorn is a really powerful move that used to be Heracross's signature. Let's add this shit!

I'm glad to get rid of these. Fish scales are gross.

Choro Notes: As an aside, Shakes could learn Peck if wanted. Maractus start with the move.

Choro Notes: This guy lets you delete moves off of monsters, including HM moves.

Why don't the police do anything about this? Really . . .

Oh man!

Check this out! YEAH!
Choro Notes: The narrow beams allow you to traverse the tall grass without battling wild monsters, however if you press a wrong direction or linger too long you'll fall off.

It smells like avocado in here.

Well . . . I already have one. But, I guess I can be helpful!

" . . . Oh. Wait, it's not a Boldore anymore."
Choro Notes: Remember this house for the future.

Your head is really kind of soft, Xanadu. No offense.

OH! Elesa used one of you!


Zebstrika have lightning-like movements. When Zebstrika run at full speed, the sound of thunder reverberates. This ill-tempered Pokémon is dangerous because when it's angry, it shoots lightning from its mane in all directions.
Choro Notes: Zebstrika are cool as hell looking. Just big pissed off lighting zebras? Hell yes I am all in for that.
Zorak Notes: A BUSTA.
HulkaMatt Notes: ELECTRIC ZEBRA!!!!!! That's cool, right? I think it's cool. Cool
Leovinus named this

Oh, well that's kind of mean!

I'm a heartbreaker . . . the name? Haley.


When Watchog see an enemy, their tails stand high, and they spit the seeds of berries stored in their cheek pouches. They make the patterns on their bodies shine in order to threaten predators. Keen eyesight lets them see in the dark.
Choro Notes: Watchog don't learn Bullet Seed. I know what that shit up there says. Watchog does not learn Bullet Seed.
Zorak Notes: Incredibly obnoxious. He's not very powerful, but everything about him is focused around status effects, and his status effects are annoying. He knows hypnosis, sand attack, confuse ray, and and that is annoying.
I . . . don't remember who named this.

Choro Notes: Charge Beam is a special Electric-type move. It's fairly low power but it has a 70% chance of increasing the user's Sp.atk

I should take my hat off . . .

Music: Pokémon FireRed/LeafGreen - Pokémon Tower The music that plays here normally is just a song we'd already heard so . . .

Kind of uncomfortable here. . .

Wow, even here?

Oh! Whoa! What, you want me to follow you, lil' guy?


Its flame is usually out, but Litwick shines a light that absorbs the life energy of people and Pokémon, which becomes the fuel that it burns. While shining a light and pretending to be a guide, it leeches off the life force of any who follow it.
Choro Notes: Litwick are pretty neat! Its evolutionary family has a unique typing and they're flat out as cute as the dickens. I don't know what that means.
Zorak Notes: Litwick is inspired by the will-o'-the-wisp (also known as the ignis fatuus), a ghostly light seen by travelers in bogs. It's said to resemble a flickering lamp that vanishes as you approach, drawing travelers from the safe paths. Interestingly, it's found in pretty much in every culture around the world that intersects with bogs. Science has yet to precisely pin it down, but we're fairly certain it's chemiluminescence in certain swamp gases. Yep, mmhm.
HulkaMatt Notes: Aw I like it. I forgot it existed until just now. But I like it.
Cheapsteaks named this


OH! You have one too! Good I was wondering what would happen if I Gear Grind'd Xanadu!


. . . probably a good thing. Hoodoo all up in here. *shudders*

Choro Notes: Will-O-Wisp is a Fire-type move that burns the target. It's really handy but nobody Haley has can learn it!


You didn't even see what you did, did you! Oh Shakes. . .


Choro Notes: Spell Tag is the hold item that powers up ghost-type moves.

. . . graves attract weirdos, don't they Xanadu?

Xanadu! Look!

Oh! You. . . That must be how Elgyem say hello! I guess!

How tall is this place?

That's probably a good thing for gears to forget how to do, really.

Choro Notes: Autotomize is a steel-type version of Rock Polish. It greatly increases the user's speed by shedding extraneous parts of the body Skarmory, Aggron and Geodude are a few other monsters that can learn this. How creepy.

Choro Notes: Ingrain has the user put their roots down to restore HP each turn . . . but it prevents them from retreating.

Choro Notes: Shadow Claw is a physical Ghost-type move that has a high critical-hit rate. It's a sharp rake with a claw made of pure shadow. Ghost-types are weird.

Oop, I feel a breeze!

"I totally didn't expect you to, wow. Dang."

Oh well, that's good I guess!

It is cloudy as all get up here, Skyla. You were flying in this and managed to see that?

"I see eeeeeeeeeeeeeeverything"

I guess. . .

Thanks! :D


Wow, you sure are flighty . . . oh.
