What is this, I don't even...

This, puny humans, is I, Umbramatic's, first Liveblog. Fittingly, it's following a game from my favorite series of ALL TIME: Pokemon.

But wait, what's with the lame "20% More" joke in the title?

Oh, that? That is a reference to my theme for this run.

You see, for nearly a year now, I have been involved in a Pokemon RP called We Are All Pokemon Trainers . It's zany, it's over the top, and I find it fun as hell. So, I decided that when I played White 2, it would have a theme. All Pokemon I catch in this run (that I actually plan on using at some point, at least) will be named after characters of the same species from the RP. This will be reflected in their personalities I give them in this Liveblog. Most will be based on Pokemon owned by my P Cs, (My character will even be named after one of them) but the Pokemon of others will show up as well.

...Won't people outside the RP be lost?

Ah, I have thought about that quite a bit... And have decided to minimize references to the RP's events in favor of focusing on its characters. Hence the 20%.

Is this one of those Self-Imposed Challenge runs?

No, because those scare the crap out of me. (Aside from egg runs, which I'm actually doing for the first time in Black 2.) In fact, I'm going to cheat a little by using two mons from eggs on my team (as tribute to certain RP characters) and using a certain Event Legendary as a Disk One Nuke (Though said Legendary will NOT like it. :P)

Anything else I need to know?


1. I will be having an assistant...

Gino: Hello, nyan!

This is Gino, the Shiny Salamence with various catlike mannerisms. His game counterpart is currently on my White 1 file, but will be helping me regardless.

Gino: Don't downgrade me to a bit role, nyan. >:|

I won't, silly.

A. The game... Isn't out yet. So, you will have to wait until Sunday for me to start this Liveblog proper.

So, now we wait...

And wait...

And wait...


Arceusdammit, Sunday, get here already. >:|

I'm not too familiar with the RP you've been inspired by, but your positive attitude and good sense of humour has intrigued me. I certainly wish you the best of luck once the game is actually in your hands!
