Yeah, yeah, next day. I'm told to go patrol, because the diary will be deciphered slowly. Again, Keith joins me, completely ignoring his "look bad" statement yesterday.
Did you know?
Sven is the seventh Top Ranger
Oh me, oh my, what a coincidence that the seventh top ranger have a name close to "seven"! Lemme guess: Wendy is the tenth? Or maybe the first?
There are only three quests to do: save a Chimchar
, stop a Vespiquen
, and help a woman get a pair of shady characters back.
I start with the second one, first. Jam-maker has a problem!
A Vespiquen and her sidekicks are buzzing
around out of control.
Because he walked in on their nest. Nice one.
It was accompanied by two Combee
. I caught them, then went for it.
- Energy Plus
This gives the Styler more maximum energy.
We moved to Pueltown from Chicole Village.
Paul and Paula moved from the village to Pueltown.
The Go-Rock Quads without Clyde
But we moved here to be closer to them!
Yeah. Moving to a town with no available homes in the first place just to be closer to a band that won't even be there forever. Figure that one out. Oh, and some band dispute.
Clyde has some soul-searching to do.
He's pulling his hair over the lyrics
for the song we're doing at the event.
Clyde: "I can't do this, man. It's offensive to black people!"
He flipped out when he saw the lyrics Altru
sent for the song.
He went off ranting and raging that he
couldn't sing this stuff.
Soul-searching? I'd give him a freaking medal for refusing to sell out to Altru. They're probably fucking evil, anyway! I find him in Brook's house while searching for the next quest, but can't do anything. I then find that lady.
It's about my team, Dim and Sun.
Team of what? Basketball players? D&D nerds? Monkies?
My Dim and Sun, two squat, dark, and handsome
darlings, have run away.
Ahh! Your team of slaves! Waitaminute, WHAT?
Pardon? Team Dim Sun?
No, no, no, Dim and Sun!
Not Team Dim Sun!
Yes, I believe you made that clear.
Dim and Sun are my Murkrow
They're totally adorable!
OH! Team of Murkrow! Thanks for making that clear.
My sister never explains things well.
Lady's Brother apologizes for her. But I accept anyway, because hey.
Please, reel them both back in to Mama!
ran away because of hate...and these may have run away because of too much love. Bueltown's citizens just don't know how to think in shades of grey...
One of the Murkrow I find in a garden near a Bibarel
in the east part. The other I find on top of the Altru Times building (I was wondering when that was going to be used!). As I went in to get it, I had to get off the Doduo
I was on manually. The nearby Voltorb
exploded as I did so, and the explosion happened while the text box was up, rendering it useless. I bring them back, and they glare at her. Gee, I wonder why.
I think the Murkrow don't like the names
you've given them.
Good thing her brother is a Pokemon behavioral expert and clears things up quickly and easily!
You make them sound as if they're Team
Dim Sun's twin mascots.
Nobody ever said anything about these Murkrows being twins. WHAT ELSE HAVEN'T YOU TOLD ME!?
- Ice Defense
Finally, the Chimchar one.
Near the ruins, I sometimes see a Chimchar
being chased around by some Beedrill
I can imagine the Chimchar poking fun at
the Beedrill to get them enraged.
Uhh...the quest briefing said it was being bullied, not it was being a pompous jackass and getting what was coming to it.
Still, I feel sorry for it.
This is exactly the behavior that caused
I find something interesting when wandering around the highlands: Carnivine
usually start off as "Strange Plant"s, which you can see if you tap them before getting too close. It says you need Tackle 2 to wake them up, but of course, you don't have to. They'll do so on their own if you get close enough. By which I mean within ten feet.
It's another one of those Partners, it seems. It ran over to me as soon as I got close, and the Beedrills attacked. As did it. But it never attacked in the fight, despite the game saying it can spread embers to attack.
I decided to fly back to Chicole at this point, and found a new section of farm opened, as Vlad's dad felt he was going to get more partners. But it was open from the start; just not inhabited. Out of boredom, I took Shieldon
as a partner instead. It was happy for no reason (even before switching) Oh, and Paul/Paula's house? Empty. But all their possesions are still in it. Where did their Cherubi
Talking to people seems to get general agreement that something is wrong with the world. As soon as I leave Chicole, I get told to report back when I'm done patrolling. When you get a message like that, it means you can go back and trigger the next plot even. So I do.
It turns out the book is harder to dechipher than they thought! So I go to the Research Room because I'm told, and just as I do, "BRIGHTON" appears on the cover. But Brighton is the second Altru president, and it was where Altru started...what could this mean? First, I have to go to Altru to get proof of this. Memory of goldfish and whatnot. As I leave, music starts playing.
It's...the Go-Rock Trio! Uh....triplets...three...fuck it. Clyde's still not back. They've gone from criminal rock stars to just rock stars. Uhh...okay.
We're the Go-Rock Quads.
Not Go-Rock Squat!
The quadruplet family band, Go-Rock Quads!
Four is the magic number for any band!
I thought it was five. At least in the case of boy bands. It must apply to other things too!
Four instead of three!
They still pretend Clyde is there. Right down to the music still having drums, despite no drummer playing. Sadly, the crowd doesn't buy it, which the squad eventually realize. I just head back to HQ at this point.
