I think I've made my history with Pokemon X and Y established. If you somehow don't know, please read my playthorugh for context. What I didn't tell you then was what happened after. Frankly, I kinda fell out of Pokemon for a bit and really only cared about gens 1-5. I saw SM and later SwSh pass me by and thought, "Boy, sure am glad I'm not buying these games anymore." Obviously, that was a pretty dumb and petty way to look at things, and now that I've given XY a second chance, I'm pretty interested in seeing what I missed out on. And hey, if all goes well, maybe this playthrough won't take me 1 and a half years? Nah who am I kidding this one is gonna take twice as long.
Here we go again. It's like nothing ever changed.
Already this game is a massive improvement over previous entries because it gives me enough letters to actually spell my name. 10 outta 10.
Excuse me? We're cousins?
Oh hey it's the blonde girl everybody seems to like. If I remember, her name is Sans.
Ok, not to be a Pokemon Fan™️ and complain about nostalgia pandering, but this is the second game in a row where the player has moved in from Kanto. Gotta get on that nostalgia grind I guess.
Hey the tv shows are back. I'm glad that even as GF continually cuts features from these games, this useless detail nobody but me remembers keeps getting in the games.
Wow he's uh... he sure is a... whew
Only just left my house and we already have the first roadblock. Supposedly this game has a thing for abritrary roadblocks, but only time will tell.
Holy **** this game has actual terrain? I know that's probably not a big deal to those of you who've played this but wow I'm so used to blocky rpg maps that this is a MASSIVE improvement to me. Love it.
Oh no she's hallucinating Papyrus! Oh no Sans it's not real the accident wasn't your fault!
You know, I feel like I've scene this setup somewhere before.
Woooow they just blatantly stole the concept of bridges from Ace Attorney smh lazy devs.
Well that sure was a fast game. I guess I'm gonna have to do the Sword & Shield Playthrough now.
Oh hey I know this guy- He's the legendary that looks the same as like 3 other legendries. Apparently this guy is cool, but the weather genies oh no those are lazy.
Lemme guess- Z Crystal?
So if Sans is the assistant, does that mean Kukui is Gaster? Someone call Matpat.
Alright, it's time for the big choice. Get the music ready.
Since the day SM was revealed, I was Team Rowlet. Glad I finally get to follow through on that.
This is a powerful scene.
Oh hey it's Rotom. If I'd played this game like, IDK, 7 years ago I'd be thrilled since Rotom used to be my favorite. Now tho, I just wanna grill.
I can't sit on these couches? I take my previous praise back: This game is a MASSIVE downgrade from X and Y.
So, Hala is Hau's Grand Dad? The lore thickens.
So I had a shot of the first battle and I had some actual things to say about it: But apparently we can't have that smh.
So uh... Yungoos everyone. He sure is a swell dude. (Why did I take this shot?)
So from what I know every regular trainer in this game shares an encounter theme. I'm... not a fan of that honestly. I know it's a minor thing, but some of those old encounter themes were seriously boppin.
So it looks like Pokemon Amie makes a return as "Care" mode. I barely used it in XY, but I think I'll try it a bit more here. As it stands, this little guy is so heckin cute.
Alright confirmed Lillie is N these are just the facts now.
I'm honestly loving this whole festival thing. Tropical evening bonfires are a very specific thing I'm super into, so I totally dig it here. It beats what I was doing at this point in XY(going through Definitely not Viridian Forest lol trust us guys.)
So your rival picks the starter with a type disadvantage against yours? I'm really not into that. I know these games are made for dumb kids, but I was a dumb kid once and I could get by against Barry with his type advantaged starter just fine.
Oh hey it's the Mega Ring 2. They even used the same animation.
And honestly, by this point I got bored. I realize I didn't get a ton done this first part but this is my playthrough and if you have a problem please tell me and I'll be happy to try and ammend it. Bye bye for now, next time we'll hopefully have more actual gameplay.
