Retro Pokemon Weekends: Pokemon Green Flailthrough Day 21

Just to get it out of the way, I know what I said the weekend before last, but there's been a slight scheduling change. I'll actually be making the Elite Four and Cerulean Cave into two separate posts to take up this weekend. Yeah, yeah, I know you're not here for me... except for you... yeah, you know who you are, love of my life, light of my heart... What? Oh no, I'm not talking about That Guy, what the hell would make you think that? He doesn't read this shit. Anyway, sorry for the change of schedule, but I put the lotion on my skin, or else I get the hose again. Anyway, on with the show!

Good news, Everyone!

We're now 10% more illiterate in Japanese!

Torneko Day 10: Running out of Options.

I'm on Floor 13, and just ate my last Bread. Missing some health but not a lot. Only, like... a third. Nothing to be worried about, right? A little wandering gets that back to full and gets me two herbs- one has a description that begins with the word "Monster," so I'm sure not eating it. I think it's the confuse herb, whose name I actually recognized last time I got one.

This seems to be a corrosion trap- I'm pretty sure it knocked a plus off my Lirpa and/or shield. Forgive me if I don't go stepping on it again to be certain. That herb's a Power Herb- handy!

This congregation of Yetis is not exactly reassuring. Moving right along...

Torneko Day 9: Safe! (Or whatever that key item is.)

I forgot to mention yesterday: I also killed a TrickBag/Bag o' Laughs. When you don't have any money they just sit there with their entirely hypothetical hands in their equally nonexistent pockets, not attacking you and having nothing to steal from you. It dropped 995 gold, and then the one I killed just now before it reached me dropped another 700-some. And then there's this!

I don't know what it is but I presume it's important.

Torneko Day 7: Honey, I can explain.

So here we are back in the dungeon, presumably to find things for Torneko's wife to sell in the shop. Which is where I assume the rest of my neat gear from the first runthrough has gone. So let's see what's new!

Pokemon Black: Epilogue (or punchline, your choice)

AngeliqueDaemon is hard at work on the next installment of Pokemon Green while also maintaining her other site, Crazy Shit My Boyfriend Says.  (The boyfriend in question being That Guy, so it will probably not surprise you that he has a lot of crazy shit to say.) In the meantime, as a way of wrapping up our Pokemon Black coverage, I thought I'd show the breakdown of what went into the Pokemon Black Flailthrough.

Granted, almost every part of that will serve another purpose- we're eyeballing Japanese DSiWare for future Flailthroughs! And the DSi XL was so darn nice I bought one for myself. After the price drop. (In our defense, no DS game has ever been region-locked before, and we have an unfortunate history with buying systems just before price drops. We bought the Gamecube and Metroid Prime a week before Prime became the pack-in and the price dropped! ) 

But that is still the hardest-earned penny ever. Most importantly though, we hope everybody enjoyed Pokemon Black as much as That Guy enjoyed playing it and writing about it! Monday: Torneko's Big Adventure continues!
