Izzy’s KnowledgeSilver Quest: Vs. Clair

Posted in KnowledgeSilver, Pokémon with tags , , on 08/29/2010 by izzicality

What is with this game and stubborn gym leaders that refuse to just hand over badges when they lose?

Also, what is with every game in this series having one leveling choke-point where you’re forced to fight hardly anything but Gravellers for levels? Luckily this time I could escape to the Ice Path, but then it’s mostly Golbats there, which is kind of similar. You know what I’m looking forward to most in my Pokémon Black game? No Geodudes, no Gravellers, no Zubats, no Golbats! No Pokémon from earlier generations are going to show up in Isshu! At least not for the main plot line. It’s a nice feeling to start on a blank slate, yes? I’m sure I’ll get equally annoyed with whatever they use as the equivalent to my rocky and batty friends down the line…

This gym battle. This gym battle. This gym battle. Is an eyesore. I tried no less than 3 different strategies before something finally worked, and the end result was hilarious. I already knew Clair’s Kingdra was going to be a thorn in my side.

The full fight after the break. -> Continue reading


Izzy’s KnowledgeSilver Quest: Vs. Pryce

Posted in KnowledgeSilver, Pokémon with tags , , on 08/27/2010 by izzicality

His middle name is Willow, it does not bend easily… or something like that. He must also be pretty dang resilient if he’s holed up in a Freezer-for-a-Gym.If this was the digital world, this gym would be under a lake. Hey, I wonder if his computer screensaver is the one with the fish swimming around on it. Great minds think alike…

I said I’d be doing this again, and I am! If it wasn’t for the new Safari Zone area, grinding various monsters to 32 would have been beyond painful. It was still painful, just not beyond it… Near the end of my harsh training, I played a lot of Picross 3D. Fight after the break. -> Continue reading

Izzy’s KnowledgeSilver Quest: Table of Contents

Posted in Digimon, KnowledgeSilver, Pokémon with tags , , on 08/27/2010 by izzicality

I managed to migrate over all of my vignettes of my “play Pokémon SoulSilver as if I was Koushiro “Izzy” Izumi” challenge to here from where they’ve been in my Facebook notes. I did most of the challenge back in March when I bought the game, and then got distracted by a few other DS games after Jasmine. I’m playing again to pass the time before I get sucked into Pokémon Black around mid-September (pre-ordered the Japanese version). All of the previous posts are backdated to their original post dates.

You can also click on the “KnowledgeSilver” tab to find them all, but here is a list in order of Gym Leader.

Rules of the Challenge -> [Go!]

Vs. Falkner -> [Go!]

Vs. Bugsy -> [Go!]

Vs. Whitney -> [Go!]

Vs. Morty -> [Go!]

Vs. Chuck -> [Go!]

Vs. Jasmine -> [Go!]

Vs. Pryce -> [Go!]

Vs. Clair -> [Go!]

Izzy’s KnowledgeSilver Quest: Vs. Jasmine

Posted in KnowledgeSilver, Pokémon with tags , , , on 05/03/2010 by izzicality

Izzy would like to point out that Jasmine is the gym leader who threw out her rock type Pokémon to discover A WHOLE NEW WORLD within the steel type, thus granting her a NEW FANTASTIC POINT OF VIEW toward Pokémon battling.

And bad puns.

…I didn’t forget about this! I haven’t actually been playing lately! And this particular piece I did a while ago.. and DID forget to post. So I guess I actually… did… forget. Well, it’s not my fault! YET AGAIN I raised at least 3 new Pokemon from scratch. It was boring. Fight after the break. -> Continue reading

Izzy’s KnowledgeSilver Quest: Vs. Chuck

Posted in KnowledgeSilver, Pokémon with tags , , on 03/22/2010 by izzicality

Izzy will not make Chuck Norris jokes, because he knows that Saurfang will cleave all blasphemers.
I keep wanting to call Chuck “Brawly”, because I’m thinking of the fighting gym from R/S/E. And wasn’t there one in D/P/Pt as well? Wow, I guess the Fighting Dojo in Saffron City received its karma for being snubbed by Sabrina and co. back in the glory days.

BUT FIRST, I battled that Eusine guy from Crystal. His song arrangement for the remakes is lovely.

Eusine has a drowzee, which will die to Muckbreath’s bite. Mink will destroy his Haunter, and NEWCOMER IORI will pitfall his powerful Electrode.

(Yet more cheesy references ahoy! This is the real reason I wanted to do this challenge, because I’m a huge dorkus malorkus when it comes to Digimon.)

Aleins: That living magnet messed up my laptop! NO, THE ALIENS DID IT. ALEINS. LOL.

Iorikun: Look, it’s Armadimon! No, it’s Iori Hida! Well, they have the same (in Japanese) voice actress anyway, it’s hard to tell them apart. I needed a ground move for Eusine’s Electrode, and I didn’t want to use a geodude or onix, but sandshrew had to be TM-trained Dig to actually have a ground move… what a hassle. He’s got pretty decent attack though.

Digitama: MORE EGGS AND CRAP ONE ALREADY HATCHED. Oh those are seeds. Phew. This thing kind of sucks but with my blood and sweat and tears it will be an awesome Sunnybeam-bread-er. Or I’ll get terribly bored of it and stop using it. It’s there for backup for Chuck’s Poliwrath, when I get to him.

With Eusine out of the way… OK, right, Saurfang– I MEAN, CHUCK! Fight after the break. -> Continue reading

Izzy’s KnowledgeSilver quest: VS. Morty

Posted in KnowledgeSilver, Pokémon with tags , , on 03/20/2010 by izzicality

HIS NAME MEANS DEEEAAAATTTHHHH clearly this is foreboding. Izzy must be as normal as possible to defeat this gym.

Tai (Tyler) has been over so while he continues to lag slightly behind me, complaining the entire way, I spent the time leveling and leveling some more, because as usual I trained at least 2 brand new Pokemon for this gym.
Fight after the break. -> Continue reading

Izzy’s KnowledgeSilver quest: VS. Whitney

Ah, I hear the gym leader of Goldenrod City is a girly girl. What better way to beat her than by scaring her with CREE~E~EEPY CRAWLERS~?
Fight after the break. -> Continue reading
