Go on an adventure ordained by fate?
-->Okay.
-->Eh.

To this day, RSE is the only set of games in the mainline series that I haven't beaten. Every time I played them, I usually lost interest around the 6th gym. I only became a Hoenn champion when I beat Alpha Sapphire and abusing repels when I needed to go into the ocean routes.

Edit: Picked Mudkip on the GBA games since I pretty much picked water starters until Gen 6, and wound up going with Treecko in Alpha Sapphire because of its Mega evolution.

I'm tempted to say Egoraptor, but I'll hop on the War Greymon train instead.

But you can bypass them by using Pokemon Bank! Shove a bunch of Pokemon in there and you'll be rolling in BP soon enough.

I remember Flannery because she's got a neat design and was my favorite of the Hoenn leaders.

Well, if we're talking about spooky puppets, how about some Goosebumps inspiration and name it Slappy?

Maybe we'll get the Pokeathlon back in place of the old game corner? Or they may just redesign Veilstone from the ground up like they did with Mauville.

Maaan, Sevii Islands. Exciting, those islands weren't, even with the (theoretically) infinite source of berries. Sure there's some stuff postgame and also Moltres, but it all feels a bit...ehhhh. I suppose sticking it between the 7th and 8th gyms works though since you could just fly right to Viridian after beating up Blaine.

Could be worse - look at Fire Emblem and how they shill the first game and its flat characters in all of their spinoffs.

It really annoyed me how much Gen 3 and 4 rely on you having four friends to do things with. Thankfully gen 5+ started making steps towards "not everyone lives in downtown tokyo".

At least Platinum let you buy good quality Poffins, even if it was $6,400 a pop.

Better question, why are Professor Cozmo's assistants muppets?

Also, I'm kind of surprised they didn't use Jirachi instead of Celebi to magic up a happy ending. Still deus ex machina, but at least it's a Gen 3 Pokemon.

Thanks for another fantastic LP, Crosspiece! And now, off to the shenanigans of the GC Pokemon games!
