#54. The Next-To-Last Bridge

You're confusin' me, too!

Music: Village Bridge has a unique thing going for it, in that it only plays the backing when first entered. Speaking to the four musicians around the map will add another instrumental track. It's pretty neat and is one of my favorite places in the game because of it.


in the world!"

Choro Notes: At this point, trainers come in two sorts: the ones that will kick your ass with evolved dudes, and:

. . . ones that use basic forms of extra-regional monsters, just ripe for getting looked up and traded for on the GTS!

Ice Cream? Ice Beam!

AHA. which one?

Oh, I guess it's the younger one.

Choro Notes: Leftovers are kind of sort of one of the best items, especially considering we pulled it out of a trashcan and that it's a rotten apple core. The holder recovers 1/16 of their maximum HP each turn.

Something tells me that you're more annoying than I think you are, beaver.


Bibarel makes its nest with mud and stacks of branches and roots it has cut up with its sharp incisors. A river dammed by Bibarel will almost never overflow its banks, which is appreciated by people nearby. It is known as an industrious worker. While its movements out of water are sluggish, it can swim as fast as any Feebas.
Choro Notes: THEY'RE HERE TOO?!
Zorak Notes: "It can swim as fast as any Feebas." Oh great, it can swim as fast as one of the slowest fish. CONGRATULATIONS.
HulkaMatt Notes: Hey, I know you. You are that doofer who can learn all those HMs!!!!!!!!!!!


Choro Notes: You can also capture Sharpedo here


They live in rivers in the jungle. Carvanha's strongly developed jaws and its sharply pointed fangs pack the destructive power to rip out boat hulls. Many boats have been attacked and sunk by this Pokémon. If anything invades Carvanha's territory, it will swarm and tear at the intruder with its pointed fangs. On its own, however, this Pokémon turns suddenly timid.
Choro Notes: Fucking love this guy. Angry fish, but not as angry as Basculin. Yeahh.
Zorak Notes: he aggression of Piranha is highly exaggerated; really the thing they're most known for in their native homes is as a decent eat. Mmm. The aggression stories come largely in part due to Teddy Roosevelt telling, well, Teddy Roosevelt stories. Love that Teddy.
HulkaMatt Notes: I'm legit scared of Carvanha. It'll bite my leg off or some shit. Like fuckin' hell imagine you're thrown in a tank of Carvanha. Yeah. THOSE DUDES DON'T FUCK AROUND.

Man, does EVERYTHING in this area have giant teeth?

What? Stop looking at my teeth.

I guess, maybe we should actually cross the bridge, sure.

. . . it smells like Patrat in here.

we love to fish!"

What? No. Yugh, I only fish out of promise to a science person.

Fish are gross.

Choro Notes: If you agree to join, every day he will give you something to fish for. Sometimes it is easy like a Goldeen. Sometimes he demands to see a Kingdra. If you show him the fish of the day you'll receive a few Dive Balls.

I think I have one more!

Choro Notes: The Pokéathlon is an event added to HeartGold & SoulSilver. Just a little reference to other games!

I can tell, yeah!

That's a good idea! It's better than moving the shop closer!

I once knew a guy over 200-years-old. I don't think he was a bridge, though.

Big bridge, little stream. Or do you mean all the houses on it?

It's a simple solution, but it's genius!"

Heya, is this the sandwich spot?


Easy Peas-


Bears defeated by Hansel: 02

Wait, do you test all of your servers by making them fight a bear?

I don't particularly want to, no. But I am really itchin ta see why "fight a bear" is part of the interviewing process.

No, no I don't. Waitress is not something I ever thought I'd call myself. I don't have to dress like one, do I?

. . . I feel condescended towards.


. . . does the bear help?


Choro Notes: Lum Berries are still basically the most useful berry. It heals status ailments!

Sure, ok.

Alright, then.

. . . oh.


You know, if you'd ask me "What will KO a L.40 Vanillish: a L.62 Amoonguss or a L.62 Ekans" I would not have guessed the Ekans for some reason.

Problem solved! Thanks Xanadu!


Ah, that's not a fish.

Choro Notes: Lapras very rarely appear if you fish in the rippling water!


Lapras have gentle hearts. This gentle Pokémon loves to give people rides and provides a very comfortable way to get around. An intelligent species, it understands human speech. Because they rarely fight, many have been caught. Their number has dwindled. People have driven Lapras almost to the point of extinction. In the evenings, this Pokémon is said to sing plaintively as it seeks what few others of its kind still remain.
Choro Notes: Delicious, delicious turtle meat.
Zorak Notes: Lapras maybe you shouldn't have made your evolutionary niche be "transport and being sad about being hunted to extinction"
HulkaMatt Notes: I love Lapras. It's just mother fuckin' Tessie :3
TyrsHTML named this

I guess we can stay here for the night, sure.
