Alternate title: Not rubber ducky?
Route 22. It's a convoluted mess to say the least. The fat muskedeer's here doing nothing, and stuff. Highlights of the route include freezing a wild Lunatone only for it to immediately defrost, and grinding everyone up to mid-50s by torturing a breeder's Camerupt and Grumpig.
Sadly, what looks like Victory Road is blocked by two Plasmids. Male and female. Presumably making out, because they don't notice me. And now I'm really stuck on what do to. Opelucid is still Popsiculid, I missed a part in that one cave but all it got me was a Crustle blockade and Toxic, I look everywhere. Back home, back in whatever it is I called the other airport town, Umbrella, back at Drayden's, the blocked paths, EVERYWHERE. What I actually have to do is so retarded it's unbelievable and I only figure it out by accident: I need to approach fat muskedeer. That gets Akuroma to show up, ask me a question (YES?), and give me his device for Crustle clearing.
Then...since I don't feel like using an HM Slave for the battle of the century, I can't believe I am about to type these words: I switched out a perfectly good water type for a Dewgong. Okay, a Seel, but one evo later and hey. And indeed, the Plasma Ship is waiting for me on the other side of a battle with a Crustle. I get into a fight not even a second having been on the ship, and find out...man. I think I overcompensated there with that leveling? Everything is mid-40s, so I got like 10 levels on them. Except my special guest...who I'd given up on after trying to grind it up and ending up in a stallfest against the same breeder's Grumpig. Fuck you, Rest. So I decided to try it out again, just because. How did it do? Well, it did better than Hugh's Serperior! Man, that thing sucks.
Below deck, there's some Plasmids just hanging about. Some want to fight. Some want to talk. Hugh just insults one and runs into a room. I go into the one across, apparently invading the women's sleeping quarters in the process. Objective here is to go through a small teleporter puzzle, getting to four switches to open an electric gate. I use Dewgong throughout, again. To compare, it had around 80-90 special attack. The rest of my Pokes had 120-150. And it was still unstoppable. A fucking Dewgong. By the time the joke wears thin, it's still usable. Let that be a testimate to the failure of Team Plasma.
Then again, why wouldn't it be? It's neutral at least all around, and water and ice are nice types for flipping off crocodiles and the like. The ship sets sail when I set foot into the room Hugh goes into. Which he's mysteriously disappeared from.
One puzzle and trip past a deactivate gate later, fat robed guy and his buddy show off Kyurem. Hugh mysterious reappears and we duel. I use Steelix and pretty much tear apart fat robed guy. Hugh has Serperior, enough said. I (and I do mean I) defeat them both, and we start to insult each other.
But suddenly, NINJAS.
The boat turns into an airship and flies off. Again we are not murdered but safely put on dry land.
Cheren, and now I get to go to 22. I decide to stick with Dewgong here. Just for the hell of head. My faith in Big D does not go unrewarded, for I pick up the Ice Beam TM in the cave. Oh, and those people making out? Still ignoring us. Even when their supposable superior officer comes along, they just move somewhere else and don't even see us. Secret entrance into the Giant Chasm I guess, and backdoor of that one route.
In the Chasm itself, Plasma White is throwing down with Plasma Black. Because Hugh wants to pick a fight, I have to duel a guy, but whatever. Then I reboard the ship after a quick ice puzzle.
Hugh's fighting like five guys no problem, so I leave him and go to the other below deck. I get into a 2-on-1 situation. No problem, because Plasma sucks. I teleport into the bowels of the ship. The number 7 is thrown around. It's one odd puzzle where I have to defeat 7 specific Plasmids while moving gates around. They're of no threat, and they even put in a doctor because pussification, After beating one of them, second from the left at the top row, I get a laminated set of underwear, I guess?
Oh, but SHIT. I have to enter a fucking password! FUCK FUCK FUCK. Lucky I had that cellphone internet thing. The password can apparently be 1101, 2202, 3303...9909, ZEKUROMU, or whatever the hell Reshiram would be in Japanese. Also, apparently, you can auto-convert to Katakana using the keyboard in the Japanese game? That would've saved me a lot of trouble.
So it's 7707. And fat robed guy shows up AGAIN. Zangoose Swords Dances and Superpowers everything to death
A Plasmid politely won't let me by one way, so I go the other way. And it's Akuroma! With his rockin' battle music!
I switch to Steelix because he throws out a Magneton. Rock Slide and then Dig so I don't set off Sturdy. Take some Flash Cannons. Do the same when Magnezone (?!) comes out. When Beelgyem makes its presence known, swap to Mandibuzz and laugh at the ensuing Energy Ball. KO with Faint Attack. Next is Klinklank. I use Heat Wave, but that bastard knows Thunderbolt! So I switch in Ampharos to finish it and a Metang off. NOW I can go into the next room.
Where G-Cis Christ himself awaits! He likes banging his staff around. He says some stuff. But suddenly, NINJAS! Hugh comes in. The ninja sends out a Liepard. Hugh hesitates, so I have to pick up the scraps. I didn't heal, so Dewgong gets to do its Dewgongy thing again. More ninjas appear after that. I freeze a Pawniard. Score on instant defrosts: 3-0. Who decided to nerf what's a 10% chance anyway?
After the ninjas are down, I go out of the cave to confront G-Cis. Who promptly proceeds to kill me. Until God smites him with lightning. Oh wait, that's just N and Zekrom. Ghetsis Christ proceeds to give Kyurem lasers which turns Zekrom into an orb, which turns Kyurem into a Gundam.
Steelix beats it, and it's time for the man himself. I guess N knows White Magic because I'm fully healed for this fight. This...very anticlimactic fight. Ghetsis leads with Cofagrificus, who tries to be a metaphorical one and toxicstalls. I switch to Steelix, but it continues to be obnoxious with Leftovers and stuff. So I switch in Zangoose. Immunity laughs at its Toxic, Shadow Ball doesn't affect it, Protect just stalls, and whatever the fourth one was, it wasn't a factor. Zangoose Swords Danced three times and proceeded to slaughter his entire team.
There's a touching moment between father and son. Well, intended to try to be, but suddenly, NINJAS! All that remains of Ghetsis is his staff.
RIP IN PEACE
