Hey everybody! I wanted to try something a little different; a “Character Plays”. So for the next few days or weeks, I’ll be playing the game for an hour or two and recording my progress in Pokemon Sun and posting it here…as Hit Girl. Now I say “Hit Girl” rather than “Mindy” for reasons I’ll explain when it actually starts.
Unfortunately I don’t have any image capturing software, let alone video capture, so you’ll have to settle for text and pictures of a screen, but if these do well I have plans for how to make them loads better. I just have to be convinced the expense will be worth it.
As some of you know, I tried posting this on Facebook already. If you’re one of those people, you also know it didn’t work out so well. So I’m trying it here. Hopefully this will prove to be exactly what I wanted in the first place, and that I’ll find additional ways to make use of this account.
I hope you enjoy.
Oh. And the awesome picture is courtesy of Marx810, who edited the picture together… And whoever actually drew the picture of Hit Girl(Bleedman?).
So, this wasn’t my idea. The rest of Justice Forever is always up my ass about improving my public persona,and engaging the pubic because we need their support, and how it’s fine for Batman to be a dark brooding, mysterious bad ass because he’s fictional, and Let’s Plays are supposed to be a big thing and this game just came out and Kick-Ass thought I’d really like it for some reason so here I am. I’ll be doing one of these once a week, and no, there won’t be any face cam because I’m not going to suit up and everything just to do this.
So, let’s just get started.
Okay…so who’s this asshole? I thought you picked a boy or girl, a starter Pokemon, and then you went out to kick ass and take names?
I guess? Can we just get go-
What is that? Can I get one of those? I want one of those.
I thought she looked like a Chloe so I named her Chloe. Kukui agreed with my awesome taste in names. Now we can finally get star-
Wait. What’s going on?
Who’s this chick and who is chasing her? What’s she got in the bag? Who are these people chasing her?
And we have the title screeen. Okay. I guess that means the game actually starts now.
And I’m playing! Kinda. I don’t have any pokemon yet. Let’s go get one.
Yes! Let’s go!
And one long conversation about Kahuna’s and whatever later, I’m on my way to get my first pokemon.
What the fuck is a Kahuna?
Hey it’s that girl…
What the fuck is that?! It’s somehow cute and horrifying at the same time..
And now it’s being attacked by birds.
Sure thing. It’s what I do. Well, more like a benefit of what I do. But whatever.
What are you doing!? Don’t just shield it, chase them off! Now who’s going to save your dumb ass?
You son of a bitch..
Dude! This guy’s a fucking badass! Can he be my pokemon? Please let him be my pokemon…
Nope. Like a true superhero, he saved the girl and flew off. He left this stone for me though. I assume it’s important to the plot because I can’t do anything with it.
So I’m supposed to keep Nebby a secret, but Kukui and this guy know about him already. Hala here is the Kahuna of this island, and I have to admit, he does look like a “kahuna”. If you pointed at him and asked me, “Is that a kahuna?” I’d say, “Yes.”
But now I finally get a pokemon!
Black and red really isn’t my thing(I actually prefer green)… but I just like the cat. It’s kinda badass and cute at the same time. Like me. Except I’m SUPER badass.
They asked me if I wanted to nickname Litten, but everything I thought of was like, a normal cat name. I kinda like Litten as a name anyway.
Flaiming furballs? Eww. This is why I’m a dog person.
Now I’ve got my little fire cat, a pokedex and it’s time to go out and wreck people.
Ah, look. A volunteer.
Hell yeah it is! And it leveled up too.
After the battle Hala started questioning me about Tapu Koko, the pokemon that saved me at the bridge. Apparently it’s the island’s “guardian spirit” and it showing itself to me is kind of a big deal, as is it leaving that stone for me. Hala took it to do something with it for me, and invited me to participate in the festival they have to honor Tapu Koko. So that’s going to happen. And Mom thinks I chose Litten because it was cool OR because it was cute, when it was both. But I guess it’s a little cooler than it is cute so what’s what I told her.
But first I have to be taught how how to catch pokemon. Apparently.
And my very first, caught-it-myself, pokemon…
but they won’t let me give it the perfect name.
So we’ll settle for this….
Now, let’s get to that festival.
A cat vs a rat. What’d you think was gonna happen?
Hold on. This girl just referred to the caterpie she sent out into battle as her sister. What is this game?
Whatever. New team member!
This is incredibly unsatisfying. Why am I even battling preschoolers? At least it’s getting me levels…
I CAN PET MY POKEMON!?
This is fucking adorable! Why didn’t anyone tell me I could do this?!
I’m going to have to kick so many asses to restore my reputation after this. And I’m going to start with Kick-Ass’ for making me do this.
Anyway, time have a battle in honor of Tapu Koko!
Well… that wasn’t difficult but it sure could have gone better. I should probably start leveling up my other team members.
He turned my stone into a bracelet. I’m supposed to use it to bring out some extra power from my pokemon. I need to find a bunch of different stones to make it work though. But whatever.
And they want me to go on “the Island Challenge” to see if I’m like…the chosen one or something? I dunno. But whatever. Go to every island. Beat the challenge. Kick the Kahunas’ ass. Got it.
And again we skip to the next day because why not and we get more dialogue.
Stop flirting with my friends, Mom. That’s why Dad left and we had to move here.
Damnit Lillie! Not you too!
Okay. I’m done.
So I’ve been summoned to Kukui’s lab for some reaso-
Ah. This is the real plot though, isn’t it? I’m going to have to defend Lillie and Nebby from an evil organization aren’t I? I am totally down for that.
But let’s get to the lab and finish up this intro so we can actually start playing.
What the hell is this dorpy thing and why do I find it oddly adorable?
“It doesn’t really feel any pain”, huh? Reminds me of someone…
But whatever, welcome to the team Dorpy!
OMG! What is this game!?
…yeah, we can call it that if you want.
THEY PUT A GHOST IN MY POKEDEX!? WHAT THE FUCK?!
It fucking talks now! What the hell is this game!?
Okay. Since I’m the only one that seems to have any reaction to that I guess we’re just going to move on.
So, Lillie lives here in exchange for being Kukui’s “assistant”.
It’s pretty nice. I’ve seen worse apartments.
Anyway, I think think this is where I’m gonna call it qui- OH MY GOD!
What is this?! It’s fucking adorable! Can I get one?! I want one! I want one now!
Stop teasing me game!
I guess getting one of those will have to wait.
