Part 1: Love and Death
Behold, the distance models!
As our friends run off to have a competition over who can enslave the most Pokémon, this actually happens I’m not even bullshitting here we start wandering through Route 1 alongside our pal Blue BP, when a chill runs up our spine. On closer inspection, there is yet another specter haunting these woods! Perhaps they were drawn to us since our nomadic commune already is one half ghost? Either way, we were able to make friends with Sage Grimm (SageGrimm), the Slugma of Route 1. I flipped around the previous convention because I realized it makes more sense to lead with the Pokémon name first since it’s what I’m using anyways
Making our way up to Accumula Town, everyone is crowding around a speaker in the town square. Some sort of caped weirdo with a cyborg eye and a detail of LARPers? The speech is brief but seems to be working to bring Poké-class consciousness to the people of the town. I’m going to be talking about this game’s plot without bringing in knowledge about what happens but this is a good moment to mention the little spoiler we’ll learn later that these Team Plasma dudes are actually Pokéfascists appropriating the language of PokésocialismUnsurprisingly, our shit-head ‘friend’ Cheren’s reaction is unfortunately that “well I don’t see any problem with enslaving sentient creatures with high-tech devices, Pokémon benefit from it!”
Fortunately however, there was someone else at this speech; a hot androgynous boy with a mysterious name - N. It’s worth noting that unlike most Pokémon characters, N is actually like 20 and not 14. I make note of this because I don’t want anyone to think I’m fangirling over a child cause that’s fucking disgusting! Like us, he can talk to Pokémon, thinks Pokéballs are super fucked up, and just generally cares about the Pokétariat! He leaves as quickly as he came, but hopefully we’ll meet again~
They literally haven’t changed since last update so you can look at that one
Type: Ice / Ghost
SPE+ / ATK-
We don’t know anything so who knows if this is good or not!
Can’t Be Poisoned
Flash Reduces the opponent’s accuracy by one stage, and can light up caves! Kinda whatever
Tackle It’s the quintessential bad attack move
Flame Charge A fire-type physical attack that does okay damage and increases your SPE by one stage. It’s not bad but uh, Grimm ain’t a physical attacker
As before, it’s too early and we know nothing about these Pokémon so we can’t really make a judgement here
