Platinum RTR Update 3

001

“Alright well… Guess we should figure out how to tell mom.”

002

“Anomalo which way are you looking? Or are you just looking… everywhere?”

003

004

“Hey, Mom.”

005 006

“Oh. Sweet!”

Later…

007 008

“Well it’s kinda like this…”

009 010

“Really? I, uh, thought this would take longer.”

011 012

013 014

[true facts i did like the Journal feature a lot in this game. it was nice to open the game and get reminded that you beat a gym yesterday.]

015 016

017

“But you got to Hearthome all the t-”

018 019

020 021

“Aww, well…”

022 023

“Yeah, I can do that.”

024

“Hey Barry’s Mom.”

025 026

027

“Yeah, I think he was heading down the road from Sandgem. Who knows where he is by now.”

028 029

030 032

“I will?”

033

“I mean, I will!”

034 035

036

“Got it, as soon as I can catch up to him.”

037

“Bye, Mom!”

038 039

040 041

“If he’s even still there. You know how he can run.”

042

“Yes ma’am?”

043 044

[I GET IT GAME]

045

[AT LEAST THIS ISN’T ONE WHERE THERE’S A POTION IN THE PC]

046

“Oh. Hey Dawn.”

047 048

[i’m not showing the catching tutorial. it’s weird how the catching tutorial comes after you can catch pokemon.]

049 050

051

“Are you going to Jubilife too? Maybe we can- Oh, no, you’re leaving. Okay then.”

052 053

054

“Alright, we can do this. Doesn’t have to be like- NO SID LET HIS POKEMON GO!”

056

“BAD SNAKE!”

057 058

“I think your Starly’s okay.”

059 060

“…Oh! Me. I guess I am a trainer now.”

061 062

“Well, since you’re polite about it.”

063

“She’s… she’s like a tiny bubble machine on one foot.”

064 065

“What? Did she use up all the politeness?”

066

“I mean my bagworm’s beating up on your bagworm pretty well.”

067 068

“And the better bagworm.”

069

“Good luck on that one.”

070

“It’s funny, it’s not that far and I still don’t end up in the big city that often.”

071 072

073

[nice touch: Kricketot’s available to teach people early about time-of-day Pokemon]

074 075

“…You really had to run off on your own?”

076 077

“Yeah, they’re uh… Rowan gave them to me.”

078

“I was wondering about that! I noticed that none of them were showing up in the Pokedex. Is… it in beta or something?”

079 080

“Are… Did Barry say something?”

081 082

“Because for the record-”

083 084

“Does… does he know we can see him?”

085 086

“Oh jeeze he heard that.”

087 088

089

“A member of the what now?”

090 091

092 093

“Extraordinarily loony, maybe. Look, man-”

094 095

096 097

“…I’m pretty sure it doesn’t say anywhere that you have to tell people that you’re with Interpol.”

098 099

“Who actually calls you that?”

100

“The… Concept is familiar.”

101 102

“What? Some nerds with bad haircuts are going around trying to steal people’s Pokemon?”

103 104

“What? This isn’t Kanto, man.”

105 106

“Uh… Thanks?”

107 108

109 110

“Wait. I don’t have to do anything for you now, do I? Because that’s how my week’s been going so far.”

111 112

“Called it.”

113 114

115 116

“I guess I’ll do that? Aaaand he’s leaving.”

117

[second favorite text box in this game]

118 119

“All I’m saying is Barry said it was close so he really shouldn’t be-”

120 121

“Oh. That’s… relevant.”

122

“According to my friend, no I do not!”

123 124

125

“Yeah it’s… it’s right behind you.”

126

“I could read the sign from back there anyway.”

127

“There you are!”

128 129

130 131

“That was low, dude.”

132 133

134

“Yeah, I’m running something for your mom since you decided to bolt before she could give it to you. Nice going.”

135 136

“Pretty sure we both know you’re not actually going to look at that before you go running off.”

137 138

139

“Oh. Score.”

140 141

142

“What? The place with the mine?”

143

“Oh yeah. Gyms. I guess we are Trainers now.”

144 145

146

“See ya dude. Good luck, I guess.”

147 148

“Why does everyone try to rub it in that- You know what, thanks.”

149

“It’s just a picture of a Blastoise flipping a tank over.”

152 153

“We’re in the same boat then!”

154 155

“…Trying to battle a little kid feels worse than I thought.”

156

“…Anomalo those teeth look like they can get through your mineralized exoskeleton.”

157

“To be fair, what do you feed that thing to make its teeth so strong?”

158 159

[…]

160

“I’ve been battling little kids all day. Sure.”

161 162

163

[i didn’t get the screenshot but i think he used an X Attack here. my gut says this starly was vicious.]

164

“It’s a bird, not a beaver! You can take it on the exoskeleton this time!”

165 167

“What you gave the Starly- Was that even legal?”

168

“No I think you used it right.”

169 170

“Well that’s because… A professor gave me these.”

171 172

[…]

173 174

“…Why did I just feel a cold breeze washing down my spine whispering the words ‘Full Restore’?”

185 186

“Oh, what now.”

187 188

“…Do people actually call it that?”

189 190

191

“Shouldn’t you have staff or something to do this?”

192 193

“…Clowns.”

194 195

“Because clowns are known for their Pokemon knowledge.”

196 197

“So… wait. If I do something for him up front, do I have to do something for him later?”

198 199

“Thanks, League rules.”

200 202

203

[not showing these. is a nice way to teach people about STAB though.]

204 205

“…You don’t have three fingers?!”

206 207

“Who actually calls it that?!”

208 209

“…It’s a watch.”

210 211

“…It’s a watch.”

212 213

“BEEN THERE. DONE THAT. THANK YOU.”

214

“…Huh. Mom always said people in condos are throwing their money away.”

215

“…It’s the same as mine but it’s in pink.”

216 217

“Wait, you’re a Trainer? …Why are you reaching for that pan?”

218 219

220

“Can… Can I ask what this used to be attached to?”

221 222

“I’m just trying to figure out what this splotch is without touching it.”

223 224

225

“To be fair, you’re as good a teacher as the actual teachers over there. Maybe better.”

226

“Hmm. Wonder where I should go from here?”

227

“I’m here…”

228

“Oreburgh’s here… Wonder if you’re supposed to pronounce the H in that.”

229

“I guess we can handle this. It’s not too long a route.”
