  1. Part 2 Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls of all ages, we are back with some more Pokemon Platinum! Last time I left off, about to choose my starter. And after some input from you guys (thank you to all who voted and apologies FDS), I decided to go with the fire type Pokemon, Chimchar. All three guys made this run about 20x easier now, because we have a fire type! Awww, isn't he cute? Mama doesn't agree, so he chooses Piplup, a counter to Chimchar, at least for now. Dawn and Rowan take their leave to Sandgem Town and Mama challenges me to a battle. Alright so, time to begin the sweeps of his time. Alright we'll just- wait a second. I CAN EXPLAIN! I really didn't think him growling me to my lowest point would work, but it did. Perhaps I was a bit unlucky to get no crits, but sometimes it happens like that. But luckily for me, the official rules of a Nuzlocke are it doesn't begin until you receive your first Pokeball to catch wild Pokemon in. Therefore, I'm still good to go. So yeah, I teleport home in defeat, my mom heals me, and then BLESSES ME WITH RUNNING SHOES! YES! Now that the game is thrice as fast, I go back to the place where I lost my first battle. Mama is chilling there like a fucking goon, not moving an inch since I lost. He says we should go to the lake and capture the legendary spirits to repay Rowan, but when we arrive, we find the team Galatic boss, Cyrus, looking out at the lake and talking to himself. He does this literally every time you see him in the game, and it's really quite annoying. But yeah, Mama realizes we have no Pokeballs, so he then says "fuck it" and runs to Sandgem Town, racing me again. With his teleportation powers, I once again lose, but I gain some valuables things along the way. First off, we get some good experience while scratching/burning some innocent birds and beavers, along with some annoying bugs. Second, we get a potion from the nice lady in the grass near the town, bless her. And last but not least, I remembered the emulator thing I'm running the game on has a speedup option! So now everything's going four times as fast, and it's sooo good. But alas, we make it to Sandgem Town, and Dawn's waiting for us. She takes us into the lab, and after Rowan reads off a fucking essay about Pokemon, I get to choose the nickname of the Chimchar. And it is, drumroll please... Wukong! I've gone with Alex's name as I really like the character Wukong and Infernape is gonna be a pretty cool representation of it. I liked Fuego and Mojojojo, but I think Wukong is a name that is worthy of the leader of the party. So after that's done, Rowan and Dawn pelt me with a few more facts and we're finally free! Just kidding, Rowan yells at me while standing right in my eye like the weird old man he is. But his intentions are good, and he rewards me with TM 27 (my favorite number), Return. I won't be using it on Wukong (or at least just yet) because TM's in Platinum are single use. I'm hoping to get a Pokemon like Buneary or Cleffa who are normal types and evolve from happiness so the move will be effective on them. Rowan finally leaves Dawn and I alone for some, haha, quality guiding! She shows me the center and the mart like I've never heard of Pokemon before, and then she fucks off to the route above to wait for me. Meanwhile, I bypass the system and enter the mart and purchase some Pokeballs. And with that, the Nuzlocke has officially begun. Here are the rules (I'll post at the beginning of every episode): Nuzlocke Rules 1. Any fainted Pokemon is considered dead (cannot be used again) 2. Can only catch the first Pokemon the appears on a route (with species and shiny clause) 3. Must nickname all caught Pokemon 4. No legendaries/traded Pokemon (can only catch) 5. If all Pokemon in the party faint, they are considered dead, but others in the PC can still be used to continue the playthrough 6. These rules are not enforced until the first Pokeball is obtained And there it is. I'll maybe add a few more to this such as limiting the amount of items I can use in battle or setting the battle mode to set, but I think this is fair for now. I'm not the best player of Pokemon, and these little conveniences help me out a lot. But yeah, I got my Pokeballs! So I go back to the previous route and get my first encounter, and I'm pleased to say it's a level 3 male Starly! Starly is a great Pokemon to start with as it learns the move Wing Attack at level 9, a 60 power physical move that is essentially 90 power because of STAB (Same Type Attack Boost/Bonus). In evolves at the low level of 14 into Staravia and does a good job at taking out the second gym. I ultimately decided to name it... Star Squared! I know that's not what it really says, but I'm gonna call him that. Afterward, I go back to the lake and rustle around in the grass near the lakeside a bit, and I find the other Pokemon I was looking for: Bidoof. I caught the level 4 female easily, and debated over it's name for a long, long time. I wanted a Bidoof because it learns the HM's Rock Smash and Cut, which is very, very good for the early game. These two moves are really bad, and I don't want them on anyone who's going to be a mainstay. HM's are moves that you need to remove obstacles in game, like bushes you cut with the move Cut. You cannot replace them, and they are usually poor moves (at least the first couple). So of course, I named my Bidoof... Uh yeah. I don't even know if this is allowed, but that's exactly what Bidoof will be: my HM slave and nothing more. Perhaps it would've been more tasteful to add HM before, but nahhh. And that's really all I did. I grinded my team a little and got Wukong up to level 8 and Star Squared up to 6. That's all for now, thank you all for reading! I'll have the next episode up as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone who submitted a reply to the first episode with a starter, I hope you all are looking forward to more!

    Good stuff as always, Gunner. It's pleasant to see that the actual results of the show differed from my predictions (mostly me winning lol) and I'm interested to see what storylines you have lined up. I'm looking forward to a Yelich/Bob feud, or even better a possible Arius and Bob alliance. Also, just to let you know, the last match looks unfinished, unless we were supposed to be left on a cliff hanger. If so, you are a dirty man, but I respect the play. Keep up the good work!
  3. I honestly have little to no idea about what's happening in this, but it looks like a lot of fun! I'll definitely take sixth on the prospect rankings, and it's clear you put a lot of effort into this, Ropati. I was pretty excited for this diary and I thought it may have died, but now looking at it, I can see that you took your time and made this as best as it could be. The wait was certainly worth it, can't wait for more!
  4. While Bart and Smith are celebrating in the ring over their hard fought victory, the infamous sound of Bulletproof's name blasts throughout the arena. The two men in the middle of the ring immediately drop their championships and get their fists up, ready for whatever is about to come at them. To their surprise, it is only Bulletproof's Mikey who emerges from the backstage. He is dressed in a one of his own t-shirts and a pair of jeans, championship around his shoulder. He claps at first, his vision blocked by the sunglasses over his eyes. He then points down at the ring, but with the distance it's hard to tell wh- FKO FROM FLYNN! BART JUST GOT DROPPED FROM BEHIND WITH AN FKO COURTESY OF THE UNDISPUTED CHAMPION! Smith rushes over to Flynn to knock him down, but he is met with a kick to the gut and a snap DDT. As Flynn continues to beat down, the two fallen men, Mikey slowly makes his way down to the ring, taking his time. Meanwhile, Flynn gets Smith up to his feet and sprints off the ropes, running shoulder first into his torso with the force of a bull with a Spear. Flynn struts around the ring, posing to the crowd as they boo him on. Mikey continues the beatdown in the ring, getting Bart to his feet and delivering the Cosmic Ascension, laying the former Undisputed Champion out once more. Just as Mikey exits the ring to retrieve some extra items, he and Flynn are interrupted from the beatdown. "Suge" by Dababy echoes throughout the packed arena as the crowd reach a fever pitch, truly showing their numbers. Sameer appears from the back, and without so much as a second of hesitation, he sprints down to the ring at full speed. He is just about to reach the ring, but his momentum is halted as the First Class Express gets into the fray. Hans quickly moves into position as Sameer approaches and lifts him high into the air, in perfect position for Isaiah Carter to hit the First Class Flight! Flynn takes a look on the outside and smirks at what he sees, holding up a finger guns, causing Hans and Carter to do the same in response. Meanwhile, Mikey shoves in a few items he found underneath the ring, in other words a pair of steel chairs, a wooden table, and a sledgehammer. The First Class Express rolls into the ring along with Mikey as the group of four make a circle around the three fallen enemies of Creed, knowing with Julius injured for the moment that there is no one stopping them from they are about to do. Carter motions for Hans and Mikey to get Smith to his feet. He also makes sure both men hold a steel chair steady in front of Smith's face for the oncoming assault. With the attack all planned out, Carter sprints at Smith and obliterates him with the Fallen Angel, using extra force to let out his anger. Next up, Mikey gets Bart up to his feet and scoops him onto his shoulders. He positions himself right next to a chair, and without any hesitation at all, he delivers a vicious Shattered Illusion, driving the top of Bart's head right onto the steel chair. With only two members left, Flynn takes it upon himself to let Hans have the last blow, and so he grabs the fallen sledgehammer from the ground, looking at it like it's a million dollars. He brings the hammer up, using one hand to hold the handle and the other to support the head, and drives it down on the grounded Sameer's back. Not willing to use the same trick twice, he has Carter and Hans get Sameer to his feet while he stalks over to the corner. He sits down on the bottom turnbuckle, pointing at Sameer and locking in his target. As Sameer staggers around the ring, Flynn sprints at him and drills him with a head on Running Knee, causing him to do a flip and land on his stomach. And last but not least, there is Hans. Only one item remains unused: the table. Hans sets it up near a corner, and it doesn't take a genius to know what's coming. Hans ascends to the top rope while Carter and Flynn hoist the unconscious body of Smith up and onto the table. Hans slowly rises to his full height with his arms in the air, grimacing because of the hell he was put through less than ten minutes ago. Despite the pain, he leaps off the rope, contorts his body in the air, and lands a magnificent Shooting Hans Press through the table! With three of the four members of Creed laid out in the ring and the other member injured, the four members of Bulletproof all huddle into a line. The four members raise each other's hands up in victory, relishing in the beatdown and being completely unaffected by the boos raining down from the audience. The four men all hold up a finger gun at the camera as it transitions to a commercial.

    An Ultimatum

    Much to the shock of the BPZ audience, the theme song that plays does not belong to Creed nor any of their members. No, the music is of Flynn's fellow Bulletproof member, Mikey. He is dressed in his ring attire, his knuckles and wrists taped up with his championship nowhere in sight. He's holding a microphone in his hand, and he looks ready for a fight. Even Flynn looks on with a look of concern. Mikey takes his time walking down to the ring, gazing at Flynn with a peculiar look. He rolls into the ring and pops up right in front of Flynn, lifting up his chin and looking down at him through the bridge of his nose. He breaks eye contact and begins to walk around the ring while he speaks. I know what you all are thinking. Is this where Mikey betrays Bulletproof and joins Creed, making it a 5 on 3 battle at Survivor Series? Absolutely not. This is to simply make an example. I saw what you said, Flynn, and I was moved by your speech. And to my surprise, you waited in that ring. Waited for seconds, and those seconds quickly turned to minutes. At that point I knew something had to be done, so I answered your challenge. But no, no, I'm not here for a battle, I'm just here to talk. Mikey and Flynn both look at the audience surrounding them with smiles, knowing they've outplayed them once again. Me coming out here is a demonstration. A demonstration of brotherhood. Anything my Bulletproof friends...no, brothers go through, I go through it with them. So Flynn, I'm here to stand with you. It's amazing how four men who make arguments day after day that they are the best the business has to offer are too afraid to even stand face to face with you. A shame really. But Creed, if you'd like to make an appearance now that there's a "rookie" out here, by all means go ahead, we're right here. Come on now, any of you, we don't bite. Mikey and Flynn look toward the entrance with Mikey extending his hand out. After a few seconds, a look of acceptance creeps onto his face, but also a look of glee. Exactly what I thought. That's exactly what I expected from the likes of Creed. Nothing more than cowards. It's blatantly apparent, and it's no use trying to hide it from the world any longer. Creed was formed because the four members in the faction knew they didn't have what it took to compete with the elite stars of today. And honestly, if you take a look at guys like us, you can't blame them. But still, these men are not only self proclaimed legends of the business, but legends that everyone acknowledges. They have accomplished so much in their tenure in BPZ, and it's honestly remarkable. But as you all know very well, everything comes to end and something else takes its place. And that's precisely what's happening here. Creed is a representation of the past five years, and we, Bulletproof, are the exact model of the present and the future. And it's a shame, really, some of those guys in Creed accomplished some great things. It's sad to think that they may never reach such heights ever again after we're done with them at Survivor Series. But as they say, out with the old and in with the new. Flynn and I will let this little act of cowardice slip this time, Creed. But at Survivor Series, if you dare not show up again, I can't promise the result will be as nice as you'd like it to be. Survivor Series will mark the true ascension of Bulletproof. A new era in BPZ will begin, an era where we will rule as kings. And everyone has no choice but to fall in line behind us. Bulletproof for life. Mikey glances at Flynn who nods his approval.

  8. Definitely one of my favorite Okada matches was one of his more recent ones. I really enjoyed his match against Will Ospreay at the G1 this year. There's nothing better than two monsters of their division clashing against each other in a really high profile match, and the two produced magic together. It was a friendly battle going into it, but as the match grew more intense it drew farther and farther away, but it was great to see the respect there at the end. Crazy to think that Okada's only 32 though...

  10. There it is. The game that the Pokemon community (along with myself) has labeled as being one of the most difficult challenges for a player. High level trainers, poor encounters, and overall a mental challenge with the speed of the game. Pokemon Platinum is the first game I've ever played, and since playing it for the first time, I've revisited the games many times. I've used different teams, tried different challenges, I've done it all. And now, I think it's the right time for me to start yet another Nuzlocke. But this time, I'd like to share my experience with you all. It'll be hell at least, but I'm gonna give it a shot. Here's what I've been up to so far: Part 1 Alright, the nice Professor Rowan told me some general stuff as if I haven't played the game multiple times already, and then asked for my name and my rival's name. Being the comedic genius I am, I decided to go with a few classics. Hopefully that will play out, hopefully for at least one gag. If not, then it's all in vain. But alas, Rowan says a bit more about Pokemon, and then he magically shrinks me down so I can fit in the town. And while I'm in my room minding my own business and watching some po- TV, Mama sprints up the stairs. I don't know why my mom let him in, but he tells me to meet him outside of the town. My mom warns about the tall grass, and I tell her to piss off and leave the house. Although Mama told me to go to the route, I know to go straight to his house. And sure enough, he sprints right out, colliding with me. Then he sprints off to the route, but wait! The dumbass forgot something again. So I have to haul my small ass into his house and go into his room. And then with a bit of explanation, he runs out again, saying he'll fine me like $10 million if he beats me there. And because he can teleport, he sure does. This guy. Little does he know I'm gonna flawless him for the whole journey. But he wants to go into the grass, but right before he yeets himself in, Rowan yells from like a mile away and he stops. He hobbles his old ass over and explains that we shouldn't be doing this shit and he's too old. Then Mama pulls a sneaky one and says he's "mature" enough to let me get a Pokemon instead of him, and that changes the professor's heart. He says because Mama's so "mature", he'll give us each a Pokemon. Then his assistant, Dawn, struts on over with the mons in the briefcase and we're ready to get down to business. Mama says I can have the first pick because he's so "mature", but basically he wants the type advantage. And bang, that's how far I got. If you've read up until this point, thank you for reading and please leave votes for who'd you like to see as a starter. And for Nuzlockes, you need to give Pokemon nicknames, and I'm unbelievable bad at doing that, or at least for starters. So, if you could fill out the form below, that'd be great. Starter (Turtwig, Chimchar, Piplup): Why You Chose Then (Trying to help you guys out and make it less of a dribble post): Nickname: I'll pick whichever starter gets the most votes and choose the nickname that appeals the most to me. I'll make longer episodes in the future, but for now this is a start. And also, I'll be uploading the gameplay to YouTube. No volume, just pure gameplay in case you're wondering about anything. I'd also like to thank @Alex Costa for his Pokemon diary which spawned this idea and @FDS for his Pokemon series on YouTube which made me go through with it. Again, thank you all for reading, stay tuned for more.

  14. This aged pretty well. I'd just like to say a little tidbit about what I think about this world series. Man what a fucking travesty. You have the Astros, a team that is one of if not the most stacked teams in the MLB, a team that dominated the AL for the entire year, up against the Nationals, a team that just managed a wildcard spot, and like Yelich said, was pretty on and off throughout the whole year. Now on paper, this literally should be a 4-0 sweep in favor of the Astros, and that's what I thought going into the series. But sure enough, the Astros take the L in the first game, and then get absolutely shat on in the second. Now don't get me wrong, if I made a list ranking all 30 teams (which I've done), the Nationals are top 5 and the Astros are barely making it past 20. But it's not about my favoritism, it's about what should have happened. A one run loss in the first game is acceptable, Scherzer is lights out, and Cole didn't do too bad either. But game 2 was just abysmal. Sure, Strasburg is a great pitcher and all, but the Astros' have an elite offense that should produce 5+ runs a game no matter what. And in this case, the 3 runs that were produced were from home runs. HOME RUNS. They couldn't even score the runs by themselves, they needed strokes of luck to do it for them. And as for Verlander. Get the fuck out of here, what an embarrassing game. This guy is pictured as the most elite pitcher in the AL, and yet he's getting roasted by a wild card team. It's really just so sad. And then the Astros got their shit together, going on a three game winning streak like they should've done from the beginning and making the series 3-2. But here comes the worst part. They blew the lead. All they needed was one win in two games. And with an assload of momentum for 3 STRAIGHT WINS, that should've been easy. But no, the once so dominant Astros got raped, violated, by the Nationals. 7-2 and then 6-2. They shouldn't be allowed to show their faces next year it's that bad. Verlander got clowned again, and the offense couldn't do shit if they wanted to. But congrats to the Nationals, they really shocked the world despite how the Astros were playing. As Yelich said, rant over, and best of luck next year to whatever team you guys like. Go Red Sox/Padres
  15. I haven't played many of them, but from my experience I've always enjoyed Mario Party 9 the most. Not exactly sure why, just felt like the game with the most to offer (I really don't know, I just like it better than the other ones).
  16. As a fan, I would answer no. But looking in WWE's perspective, the answer is a resounding yes. They clearly have a vision in mind, and these people are experts at knowing what the crowd wants. They only lack in the enforcement of giving the crowd what they want. And by broadcasting that a person is over when they want them to be but isn't is a really valuable tool. Obviously the live crowd knows the difference, but odds are they aren't gonna go back and watch the tape again. Crowd reaction editing is a really valuable tool for WWE, and I think that if they want to succeed, they should for sure keep doing it. But like I said, as I fan I disagree with the action, but some things are just beyond our control.
  17. It's actually crazy that this match is happening now. I thought for sure that WWE would save it up because there's still a lot of stuff to cover in it, but now that I'm thinking about it, why not now? The story is built from their past and it's a big four PPV where they'll shine with a card like this. It's almost too perfect, and with a match involving Bryan and Wyatt, only great things can come (hopefully). I think the match being a normal one (for now) benefits it, as I think it'll be harder for any of that bullshit to happen like it did a Hell in a Cell. I'm almost sure that this is only the beginning of this feud, and that it'll stretch until Mania at least. There'll surely be some down time in between to keep it fresh, but it's too good not to use twice. Both guys are more than worthy of holding that title, and having two guys like that competing against each other for the biggest title in WWE with the storyline that has been built and is yet to be built, I can only imagine. Honestly, this is a sleeper for me to be Match of the Night, and I think it's plausible as long as it's a real match like I said earlier. I think it's clear that Wyatt will retain simply because it's too early into his reign, but once Bryan can build up some face momentum, I wouldn't put it past him to win the rumble and capture the belt at Mania.
  18. Unlike the men's match, I'm utterly terrified for this one. All three brands have some pretty limited rosters, and they're hurt by having Becky, Bayley, and Shayna in the championship match and not this one. But, I still have a bit of a silver lining. This could have the potential to be really fun if everyone does their part right. If the match starts standard where some of the lower-card women get eliminated, this match could honestly piece together nicely if there are some names like Charlotte and Banks involved. I honestly have no idea who will win, but for now I'm leaning toward SmackDown for the pure fact that their division is the most stable at the moment (in my opinion).
  19. Honestly, I haven't been keeping up with WWE much lately and I had no idea this match was happening until I saw the thread. This is going to be a fun ass match to watch, mark my words. 15 men in a match that's not a battle royal seems like utter chaos, and I'm going to love every second of it. Bodies will be flying, botches will happen, and although it may not be a good match, it'll be entertaining. I imagine that based on what RAW and SmackDown's come up with, NXT will also have a blend of main eventers, so this shouldn't disappoint at all.
  20. Oh yessir. After the Styles vs Nakamura disappointment at Mania a few years ago, this is a great way to come back. I'm also pretty surprised that Nakamura's going into this as champion rather than someone else, but no complaints here. I also think that Roderick Strong is a great addition to the match. I think the first match between Nakamura and Styles was really hurt by the main roster creative team and what they were limited to, but with Strong in the match, I'm predicting it to be more of an NXT match rather than a main roster one. I'm expecting a lot of big spots, mostly crazy reversals, but I'd be lying if I said I'm not looking for some weapons to be used in the match. But even if it turns out to be clean, this could still easily be match of the night. The technical proficiency of all three of these guys combined with some other aspects of their game is gonna be nice. I obviously have Styles picking up the win with a pin on Nakamura, but I wouldn't put it past Strong to pick up a surprise win.
  21. This is already looking like a very interesting matchup. On one hand, you have Becky and Shayna, two centerpieces of their division that are both indispensable by any means, but what I find most interesting is the addition of Bayley. Bayley still really needs a big match/win to prove herself, and this is a perfect opportunity to do so. She's been portrayed as a heel who's desperate for the spotlight she thinks she deserves, and I think it's a really good character for her. But with that being said, I don't think that Bayley will come away with the victory. Like many others, I'm predicting Shayna. Not only does this establish her as a women who's worthy to be on the main roster, but she's already running a bit late on the years and this is a big chance for her to capitalize on the momentum she's been building for her title reign. So yeah, I got Shayna winning by a submission on Bayley.
  22. Daniel Bryan 100%, no contest. If I wouldn't choose Styles over Bryan, then there's no chance in hell I'm choosing him over Strickland, and I doubt anyone else would either. Strickland's still a good worker and all, and he's got some good work in his career to back him up, but he's still pretty young and has a lot left in his career. Bryan's been established since day one and has found success everywhere, and that has all been warranted by his tremendous in ring ability and mic skills/charisma. Strickland pales in comparison to Bryan, but I guess there's a chance he'll be better in the future. But for now, Bryan is the right choice for me.
  23. I think it's certainly plausible for Punk to make an in ring return. I say "an" as singular, because I doubt Punk would be willing to wrestle more than once. He's already been brought back on WWE backstage, and although it's because it's a FOX controlled show, I think Punk would stay with the personality type role if he ever signed with WWE. He's proven to be great as a color commentator or just as someone with good mic skills and charisma (interviewer/GM). He's definitely a bit rusty after taking some time off from wrestling, and it's no secret that Punk's years in top shape are running out. He's in his 40's, and it's no easy task for someone who is that old to get back into shape for wrestling when they haven't done it for years. Then again, Taker manages to do it time and time again although being a decade older, so I think Punk'll be used sparatically like Taker: once every couple of months or so just as a card filler or maybe to get a new guy over.
