Blue Update 1
Grabbed my free potion, got a Squirtle, almost lost to rival because speed ties are gay. Encountered WAY too many Pokes for a professional speed run, but oh well, this is for fun. Angered that I can't proceed without delivering that gender-confused asshole's parcel, I begrudgingly do so.
Come Viridian Forest, and I forgot to bring an Antidote. I feel like that bug trainer at the entrance I've mocked all these years... T_T Luckily, a potion and not taking poison damage on turns the opponent is KO'd meant I didn't end up losing to Caterpies and Weedles, thank god.
OHAI BROCK BUBBLE SPAM GIMME BADGE
Mad dash through Mt. Moon, Squirtle evolves early on inside. I decide to save as to not waste time while I look up Paras encounter rates; not looking good. So I decide if I find a Clefairy first, I'll capture it for flash, and Sandshrew later. Captured said Clefairy, Paras shows up only a few steps later: ****, A MINUTE WASTED MY LIFE HAS ENDED!
Forgot TM 01 (Mega Punch) was down a ladder half the room back. DAMNIT ANOTHER MINUTE WASTED LIFE=END!
Owned Misty thanks to Mega Punch and some crit hax (didn't need to use any potions thanks to the crits ), epic win. Lose to rival because I skipped the Pokemon center, missed Mega Punch twice and was met by a hyper fang finish. Saved prior to the fight though, so I breezed through by not risking Mega Punch with my new Bubblebeam TM. Destroyed all the trainers in the way, get S.S. Ticket, mad dash to Vermillion City. Get and teach Dig to C along the way, of course.
Own rival again, get cut, cut trees, get annoyed at electric locks in trash cans, destroy Surge with dig because he thinks Raichu using an X-Speed is a better move than Thundershock (or T-bolt if he has it in Red/Blue). Run to get bike voucher from the Rapidash beastiality fan club chairman, run back to Cerulean to get bike, and run off to Rock Tunnel.
Forgot about getting flash once I go into the cave. ****! Isn't as pitch black as in Fire red/leaf green; awesome. You can easily see all the walls 'n such, just nothing else. Thus I skip getting flash (would of taken... I don't know, a 5 minute trip back and forth?) which only causes a few seconds of bumping into trainers and walls of lost time, good trade off.
Quickly get to Celadon, go destroy the rockets and Giovanni, C is level 35; really? Luckily I picked up a rare candy in the same area, got me a Blastoise, and ran off to the Celadon gym. Victreebel's crit with Razor Leaf almost did me in, but two digs got rid of it. Erika sends out Tangela, I cower behind my Paras while I use potions (didn't buy any super potions... woops). >_>; Strategy works, Mega Kick OHKO's her Tangela (picked TM 05 up when I visited the Celadon mart before hand to buy super repels and such), Dig 2HKOs her Vileplume. Petal Dance had me at low HP making it close, but I had two revives anyway, so losing was not an option.
Oh, and I also got and taught Fly to Spearow. Saved here.
This session's results:
C: Level 37. Bubblebeam, Dig, FALCON Mega Punch, FALCON Mega Kick.
Spearow: Fly slave
Paras: Cut slave
Clefairy: Rotting-in-the-PC slave
Not bad so far, but I've lost cumulative time with a handful of trainer battles I didn't want, a few herpaderp mistakes, and not being anal about the really small things that make or break pro records. But yeah, I think I'll still have a good playtime, just nothing too amazing. I'm anticipating someone to beat it already.
