Day 1 - A Whole New World! Welcome to Alola!

  • 00:00: The game begins, and the darker-skinned Caucasian male is selected, much to the dismay of the Mob who wanted a female protagonist. He's initially named 0.66treewssa, but B spam due to misguided members who hoped there was still some way to go back to the gender select screen led to this being canceled and he ends up being called 9'l.
  • 00:27: !!!yg''l'v the Popplio is selected as the starter!

  • 00:48: 9'l catches his first Pokémon, a Pikipek. He follows this up by catching a Yungoos and a Ledyba. None receive nicknames.
  • 00:53: _uu544ttyrrR the Ledyba is captured, followed by !!zyvvv bbry the Caterpie, filling up the team for the first time.
  • 00:57: Another Pikipek is captured. It winds up in the party, sending !!!yg''l'v to the PC.
  • 01:26: Hau is battled. The team consists of three Pikipeks, a Yungoos, a Ledyba, and a Caterpie. 9'l loses, but Caterpie is able to level up twice by knocking out Hau's Pichu.
  • 01:41: Another Yungoos is caught, replacing one of the Pikipek.
  • 03:41: 9'l ends up trapped in Festival Plaza, doing counterclockwise laps. It takes him half an hour to complete the tutorial.
  • 05:55: An Alolan Meowth named Meowthz52335 is captured, replacing the Yungoos that was boxed earlier.

  • 06:42: !!zyvvv bbry evolves into Metapod.
  • ~07:30: The live updater goes dark during night hours in America. If anyone from Europe/Asia/Australia can fill in these gaps, it would be greatly appreciated.
  • 12:16: The updater returns. During the break, the party has become Abra, Magnemite, Grimer, Meowth, Ledyba, and Metapod.
  • 12:37: A Spearow is captured and not nicknamed. It seems that the option to replace party members with freshly caught Pokémon has also been disabled during the dark period.
  • 13:54: Metapod reaches level 13 and fails to evolve.
  • 15:12: Metapod evolves into Butterfree at Level 14 and immediately learns Gust.
  • 15:39: A few minutes after Abra fails to evolve at the earliest possible opportunity, !rr333urrrrr the Cutiefly is captured, and catching experience leads to both Ledyba and Grimer leveling up and learning new moves. Grimer overwrites Pound with Acid Spray and Ledyba replaces Tackle with Mach Punch.

  • 17:05: Island Kahuna Hala defeated!
  • 19:03: 9'l switches to the Tropical Tee. He also purchased an Iconic Top.
  • 20:50: 9'l catches a Lilliup and names it Lilli3. Chat goes wild.
  • 20:58: 9'l picks up a Zygarde Cell!
  • 21:12: Hau is battled and defeated. Ledyba reaches Level 18 and tries to evolve, but fails.
  • 21:46: Magnemite is deposited and Yungoos is withdrawn. A minute later, Meowzie is switched for Popplio.
  • 22:07: An Eevee is captured and named ♂88kkki688zj. Popplio gains two levels and learns Disarming Voice. !!!3rtt8yyyh the Grubbin is then captured, allowing Trump to reach Level 10 and learn Sand-Attack.
  • 22:37: Mallow gives Nigel the ability to ride Stoutland. The Mob wants to milk Mallow, unsurprisingly.
  • 23:30: A Mudbray is captured, and Grimer levels up and tries to learn Poison Fang, failing. It's then discovered that replacement was turned back on, and Butterfree is sent to the PC in exchange for the new Mudbray.
  • 23:38: A Pikipek is caught, named Pikipek""", which replaces Abra.
  • 23:41: Mudbray reaches Level 15 and fails to learn Double Kick.
  • 23:45: A Grubbin named GrubbinUu66 is captured, allowing Ledyba to reach Level 19, whereupon it fails to learn Silver Wind, fails to evolve into Ledian, and fails to remain in the party.

Day 2 - Alolan Roller Coaster Ride! The Party Shuffling Continues!

  • 00:21: A Lillipup is captured and named !!5dtll, and Yugi Love is sent back to the PC as a result.
  • 00:28: Nigel picks up another Zygarde Cell.
  • 02:17: Pikipek"""" is thought to have been released, but then this is disproved as it remains in the party. !!5dtll is instead believed to have been released, Meowzie is withdrawn, and Trump is deposited. People continue to insist that it was Pikipek"""" that was released.
  • 02:47: z333rrrrvr33 the Lillipup is captured to fill the open slot in the party.
  • 03:10: Meowzie reaches level 18 and tries to evolve, failing.
  • 04:02: Nigel meets Team Skull's Gladion and denies that his name is 9'l.
  • 04:14: Gladion defeated!
  • 04:44: Nigel talks to a trainer who wants a Lillipup in exchange for a Bounsweet. He makes the trade, but rather than z333rrrrvr33, !!5dtll is traded, sending the new Bounsweet directly to the PC and proving that !!5dtll wasn't released after all. Apparently it was a Pikipek that was released, just not the one in the party.
  • 05:08: Psyduckv""V is captured, sending Lillipup to the PC.
  • 05:44: Nigel captures a Wishiwashi and fails to nickname it, sending Psyduck to the PC.
  • 06:37: Totem Wishiwashi defeated on the second try, with only Nigel's Wishiwashi still standing, er, swimming.
  • 09:46: On at least the fifth or sixth try, the Kiawe trial is beaten.
  • 16:21: Another blackout in the updater ends in style with the defeat of Totem Lurantis!
  • 23:54: Another Yungoos is captured, named 55GGGMMMGGGH. It ends up in the party.

  • 04:15: ♀♀♀- the Mudbray is captured, sending a Zubat to the PC.
  • 04:20: A Rattata is captured, and the Mob attempts to name it a long string of numbers, but the game won't allow more than five numbers in a name. Hmm...
  • 04:29: ♀♀♀- is replaced in the party by Mudbray2000a, and the chat manages a rare triple Jorsun as Pikipek"""", Meowth, and Lillipup all try and fail to evolve.
  • 04:44: Another Pikipek is captured and sent to the PC. The Pikipek captured earlier in the hour evolves to Trumbeak!
  • 05:23: A Diglett is captured, and Meowth goes to the PC.
  • 08:35: Gastly is sent to the Daycare.
  • 14:17: The updater returns from another dark period with a blackout to Olivia. The current party is two Zubats, a Diglett, a Magnemite, a Yungoos, and a Mudbray.
  • 14:21: One of the Zubats is deposited. A Grimer is withdrawn, most likely the one that had spent significant time in the party because of its high level, only to be released, and the other Zubat is replaced in the party with a Wishiwashi.
  • 15:00: The empty spot in the party is filled with a Nosepass, and Yungoos evolves into Gumshoos!
  • 15:07: Olivia challenged! Failure!
  • 16:06: Another challenge begins, and fails. Another catching spree follows.
  • 19:00: Zubat is deposited, and a Metapod is withdrawn. It's then deposited in favor of an Abra, which is then deposited, as is Wishiwashi. Diglett is released from the party. A Gastly is withdrawn.
  • 19:34: Gumshoos and Magnemite are deposited, Nosepass is swapped for Zubat, and Salandit is withdrawn. Salandit is then swapped for Magnemite and a Metapod is released. Salandit is withdrawn again, as is Trumbeak, but then the latter is switched for a Comfey.
  • 20:47: MMNMMLLLLLL the Gastly is captured, filling the sixth slot in the party.
  • 21:14: A Gastly is switched for Bouncee the Bounsweet. Comfey is deposited for an Igglybuff, then withdrawn again in exchange for the other Gastly. Meowth is allowed to return in exchange for the Igglybuff...no, wait, it's a different Meowth; this one's only level 6.
  • 23:09: Olivia is challenged again.
  • 23:17: It appears that it is now possible to evolve after a blackout. Zubat evolves into Golbat!
  • 23:52: A fourth defeat at Olivia's hands finishes out the day. Or is it the fifth?

Day 4 - I'll Make A Mon Out of You! Wattson Rankings Abound!

  • 00:14: Olivia is challenged again, and beats Nigel again.
  • 03:14: The seventh attempt at Olivia ends in failure. Looks like we're going to have a real Wattson Ranking this run!
  • 04:10: 8th time's not the charm, but Bouncee evolves into a Steenee!
  • 05:06: The D-Pad has officially been disabled, curbing the Fly spam. During a short updater blackout, attempt #9 passed, and #10 has just failed.
  • 05:18: Olivia is challenged for the eleventh time. Seven minutes later, she's beaten Nigel for the 11th time.
  • 05:36: A TM is used to teach Salandit Flame Charge over Double Slap.
  • 07:03: During attempt 12, Magnemite replaces Spark with Electro Ball.
  • 07:09: Attempt #12 is TEH URN!
  • 07:57: Rival battle! Hau has an Alolan Raichu now.
  • 08:03: Hau wins, but it doesn't matter.
  • 09:43: AAABBBBBBBBC the Alolan Grimer is captured and sent to the PC, and Magnemite fails to evolve.

  • 13:56: Both Meowth and Golbat try to evolve and fail.
  • 15:00: Trainer Molayne is challenged, defeating Nigel.
  • 15:28: Ball spam starts to ruin Attempt #2 at Molayne.
  • 16:29: Bouncee reaches level 28 and fails to learn Stomp! Now it won't be able to evolve into Tsareena!
  • 16:35: Trumbeak and Rattata end up deposited, and Magnemite and a Lillipup enter the party.
  • 16:44: Attempt 3 at Molayne begins!
  • 17:05: Attempt 4 begins!
  • 17:22: Lillipup fails to evolve over the blackout!
  • 17:26: Attempt 5 begins!
  • 17:39: Both Meowth and Magnemite try to evolve over the blackout. Neither can.
  • 17:58: Attempt 6 also ends in failure, and Golbat fails to evolve into Crobat. Two Wattson rankings in one day!
  • 18:13: Neither Magnemite nor Lillipup evolve, but Molayne is defeated on the seventh attempt!
  • 18:24: Trial start! Nigel's party hasn't been healed from the Molayne battle, though, so it ends in a quick failure.
  • 18:49: Vs. Totem Vikavolt! On the way, Lillipup, Golbat, and Meowth have all failed to evolve yet again.
  • 18:55: Totem Vikavolt takes down the party.
  • 19:11: Totem Vikavolt goes down, but...
  • 19:13: ...Mud-Slap spam by the opponent and poor move selection leads to Magnemite being unable to take down its ally. Attempt 2 fails!
  • 19:30: Attempt #3 is successful! Electrium Z get! Steelium Z get! Professor's Mask get!
  • 20:04: A-♀♀UUUUUUUU the Minior is captured, replacing the Alolan Meowth, but then it comes back and Magnemite goes into the PC, only for Meowth to quickly go in as well.
  • 21:11: Nigel challenges Team Skull Boss Guzma.
  • 21:53: Nigel picks up a Zygarde cell and challenges Guzma again, having lost the first time.
  • 22:10: A Pancham is captured, named Pancham22.
  • 22:27: Lillipup finally evolves!
  • 23:21: Another Guzma battle!
  • 23:35: And another! Attempt 4, however, results in Nigel winning! No Wattson ranking for you, Guzma!

Day 5 - I Wanna Be Like You! Mimikyu's Best Gatekeeper Impression!

  • 02:01: Pancham is traded for a Happiny!
  • 05:14: A battle with Totem Mimikyu ends in a blackout!

  • 07:32: Only two Pokémon go down as Totem Mimikyu is defeated!

  • 11:51: Nigel finds the TM for Sludge Bomb.
  • 12:06: There's a password puzzle. Nigel can't get by.
  • 12:47: Nigel can get past the password puzzle now. The questions are Guzma's favorite move, favorite Pokémon, and favorite drink; the answers are Beat Up, Golisopod, and Tapu Cocoa. Then he has to select "No!".

  • 20:19: Nigel challenges Aether Foundation President Lusamine. He loses, but the story continues anyway. Nigel receives the Moon Flute and the Master Ball, and Lillie "enters her Z-Form", according to the chat.

Day 7 - Be Prepared! Hapu, Zygarde, and Aether!

  • 00:19: The Master Ball is used on an East Sea Gastrodon.
  • 04:23: Nigel finds Lillie talking to Hapu, the Kahuna of Poni Island. Nigel can only take out one Pokémon before blacking out.
  • 04:43: Nigel switches around the party order.
  • 05:00: It doesn't help. It takes all six of Nigel's Pokémon just to take down her Alolan Dugtrio.
  • 05:20: Nigel shuffles the party again. cc5 is in the front, with the other Fearow in the back and Ariados in position 5.
  • 05:34: Attempt #3 begins.
  • 05:39: After Ariados, Ribombee, and cc5 go down, nameless Fearow takes out Alolan Dugtrio with Drill Run, but can't get off of Drill Run when Flygon comes out. The run ends in failure.
  • 05:54: Attempt #4 begins, and again only the first Pokémon can be taken down.
  • 06:21: Attempt #5 begins.
  • 06:30: Kadabra's Psychic takes out Hapu's Gastrodon! It's the first time he's managed to take out a second Pokémon. Note that Hapu seems to always leave Alolan Dugtrio in until it faints, but freely switches between her other three Pokémon.
  • 06:37: Following the blackout, Nigel purchases the TM for Calm Mind.
  • 07:07: Attempt #6 begins. cc5's Black Hole Eclipse and Ariados's Sucker Punch are able to take out Alolan Dugtrio.
  • 07:09: Crabrawler's Bubble Beam finishes off Hapu's ace, Mudsdale, but Gastrodon and Flygon are still standing with only Kadabra as a backup. The run ends without another knockout.
  • 07:24: Attempt #7 begins. This time, Ariados can't follow through after cc5's setup, and Ribombee also goes down before Fearow can Drill Run Alolan Dugtrio away. The attempt ends with no further victories.
  • 07:43: Nigel begins shifting the order of his party around. It keeps going for almost half an hour. When it finally stops, Fearow is in the front, cc5 in the back, Ribombee in position 5, and Ariados in position 3.
  • 08:14: Attempt #8 begins. Alolan Dugtrio narrowly survives Fearow's Drill Run as it sets up Sandstorm, and Hapu heals it with a Hyper Potion as Fearow uses Drill Peck. Fearow then survives a critical hit Iron Head to Drill Run Alolan Dugtrio out of the battle and levels up, but immediately faints to sandstorm damage.
  • 08:17: Crabrawler manages two Crabhammers, one a crit, on Gastrodon before going down. Kadabra tries to Psychic but is stymied by Gastrodon's Recover, and eventually goes down to Muddy Water before it can manage to take it out. Ariados finishes it with Night Shade, but Mudsdale wipes the rest of the party.
  • 09:08: Nigel finds another Zygarde Cell at the Aether Paradise building. He then finds a Hyper Potion.
  • 09:30: Attempt #9 begins. Thanks to its level-up last time, Fearow now takes out Alolan Dugtrio in one hit with Drill Run.
  • 09:31: Hapu tries to bait out a Drill Run by sending in Gastrodon only to switch to Flygon. Nigel doesn't bite and Drill Pecks it.
  • 09:32: Hapu heals Flygon with a Hyper Potion after another Drill Peck, and its Dragon Breath finishes off Fearow. Ribombee comes in and cleans up with Dazzling Gleam, reaching Level 49 and trying to learn Quiver Dance. Despite the danger of having status moves in TPP and the fact that Ribombee's movepool was already pretty solid, the chat tries to approve this action, but fails.
  • 09:35: Mudsdale's Heavy Slam takes out Ribombee after a Dazzling Gleam, then Fearow after a pair of Assurances. Ariados Night Shades twice to finish it off.
  • 09:37: Ariados manages two Night Shades on Gastrodon before fainting. Kadabra's Psychic isn't quite enough to finish it, though, and it Recovers. This Psychic/Recover tradeoff is then repeated, and Gastrodon uses Muddy Water on the next turn but it misses.
  • 09:38: The chat is expecting another Recover to follow their next Psychic, but Gastrodon instead uses Muddy Water again, and the next Psychic is enough to finish it off. Crabrawler levels up as Hapu is defeated! Nigel receives a Max Revive.
  • 11:32: Nigel enters the lab where Sina and Dexio explain the Zygarde assembly process.
  • 11:49: Assembly complete! 66 the Zygarde (10% Forme) joins the party! Kadabra is sent to the PC.
  • 11:53: A Raticate is captured and added to the party in place of Crabrawler.
  • 12:20: Nigel receives an Aerodactyl! It's sent to the box.
  • 13:02: Lillie heals Nigel's party, and he rematches Veteran Harry, who beat him right after his victory over Hapu. Nigel is victorious this time.
  • 15:38: An Ace Duo manages to avoid joining the "normal trainers" section of the Wattson list, falling on the third attempt.
  • 16:40: Lillie joins Nigel for a bit, overcoming her fears to cross a bridge even with annoying Murkrow around.
  • 19:42: Lillie heals Nigel again.
  • 21:11: More Lillie healing as a cutscene starts. Trial begin! Vs. Totem Kommo-o!
  • 21:19: Trial complete!
  • 21:31: Nigel and Lillie play flutes at the Altar of the Sunne, and Cosmoem opens the door to the Ultra Space.
  • 21:40: Vs. Lusamine!
  • 21:52: Lusamine wins, and unlike last time, this one doesn't let the plot continue.
  • 23:08: Lusamine is challenged again.
  • 23:27: Lusamine is victorious again.
  • 23:42: Lusamine is challenged for a third time.
  • 23:56: Third time's the charm! Lusamine defeated!

  • 09:51: Kahili proves victorious; Nigel is unable to knock out even one of her Pokémon, though he gets to see three of them thanks to switching: Skarmory, Mandibuzz, and Toucannon.
  • 09:56: Run 2 begins, and this time Nigel starts by challenging Acerola.
  • 10:08: Acerola wins! Sableye, Palossand, Froslass, Dhelmise, and we didn't even see her fifth.
  • 10:13: Run 3 begins, starting with Hala again.
  • 10:23: Nigel victorious, going after Olivia next.
  • 10:33: Relicanth, Carbink, and Midnight Lycanroc is all Nigel sees as he loses.
  • 10:43: Run 4 begins, straight to Olivia this time. All three of the ones he saw last time go down, as does a Probopass, but her Alolan Golem finishes off the team. Black out!
  • 11:04: Run 5, going to Hala first again.
  • 11:16: No win over Hala this time. That's five attempts and a grand total of two victories.
  • 11:28: During a little bit of grinding against wild Pokémon, Ariados reaches level 63 and replaces Night Shade with Toxic Thread.
  • 11:39: Attempt 6. Hala first, lost. From here on out run updates will be brief.
  • 11:59: Attempt 7. Hala, Acerola, black out. Still haven't seen Acerola's fifth Pokémon, though it was Palossand, not Dhelmise, that finished the run this time.
  • 12:30: Attempt 8. Hala, Acerola, blackout.
  • 12:55: Nigel leaves the Pokémon League and flies to Tapu Village, then goes to Mount Lanakila, then back to Tapu Village, back to Mount Lanakila...
  • 14:01: Attempt #9. Nebby is taught Sleep Talk, replacing Crunch. Acerola is challenged first, and defeated! Her last Pokémon was Drifblim. Nigel barely got by, though, so it takes only one turn for Hala to finish the run.
  • 14:32: Attempt #10. Hala is challenged first and defeats Nigel.
  • 14:59: Attempt #11. Hala, Acerola, blackout.
  • 15:32: Attempt #12. Hala, Acerola, blackout.

  • 18:29: Olivia defeated for the first time! Nigel celebrates by going to Didney Worl.
  • 18:35: Nigel returns to his challenge and faces Hala. It does not go well, though he still manages to knock one Pokémon out.
  • 18:53: Attempt #16. The updater goes black for a bit, but when it comes back nearly half an hour later, Olivia has four active Pokémon to Nigel's badly bruised Ariados and Zydoge. Zydoge turns it around, though, and Olivia is defeated before a quick loss to Acerola.
  • 19:54: Attempt #17. Hala, blackout.
  • 20:16: Attempt #18. Olivia, Acerola, blackout.
  • 20:59: Attempt #19. Olivia, blackout.
  • 21:36: Attempt #20. Olivia, Acerola, blackout. Note that due to messing around in menus and Didney Worl, over half an hour passed between defeating Olivia and having Acerola end our run in one turn.
  • 22:56: Attempt #21. Olivia, Hala, blackout.
  • 23:41: Attempt #22 begins. Hala is challenged first, followed by Olivia.

Day 9—Be Our Guest! Long Day at the League!

  • 00:09: Olivia defeated! That's two members down in the same attempt for the first time!
  • 00:17: But Acerola ends the good run. Black out!
  • 00:22: Attempt #23. Hala is up first, and Fearow takes out his Hariyama before falling to Crabominable; Ribombee sweeps the rest. Kahili is challenged for the first time since Attempt #1. Solgaleo takes out her Skarmory and Mandibuzz before falling to her Toucannon; Ribombee takes that down but falls to her Crobat, one of the Pokémon Nigel didn't see last time. Zygarde takes out that one and her Oricorio.
  • 00:47: Attempt #23 continues against Acerola. Ariados beats her Sableye, but she's a crafty trainer and uses set-up/Baton Pass on her Drifblim; Froslass takes Ariados out. It only boosted Special Defense, though, so Raticate takes Froslass out, then the rest of Acerola's team. Three Elite Four members defeated! Just one attempt after first managing two! And with Zygarde, who does well against Olivia's team, still left. Unfortunately, her Relicanth manages to get off a Yawn, and Zygarde gets taken down while it's sleeping; Raticate quickly follows.
  • 01:08: Attempt #24 begins. Hala, Kahili, Olivia, blackout.
  • 01:51: Attempt #25. Hala is challenged first and wins.
  • 02:54: Attempt #26. Hala, Acerola, blackout.
  • 03:27: Attempt #27. Hala, Kahili, Acerola, blackout.

  • 07:07: Attempt #32. Hala, Kahili, Acerola, Olivia, blackout.
  • 08:55: After some party and item shuffling, Attempt #33 begins. Hala, Acerola, Kahili, blackout.
  • 09:44: Attempt #34. Hala is essentially defeated flawlessly, Ribombee's Draining Kiss restoring everything it lost. Acerola is up next, and Ribombee goes down but Fearow cleans up. Kahili is up third and takes out Solgaleo alone, leaving four Pokémon still standing for the battle against Olivia, only half of whom are weak to Rock-types (though all four have a weakness to one of Carbink's STABs). Ariados goes down, but Zygarde cleans up. Olivia defeated!
  • 10:24: Nigel celebrates defeating the Elite Four with repeated trips to Didney Worl.
  • 10:36: Finally, Nigel takes the throne. Kukui announces Nigel to be the champion...then challenges him! Kukui is victorious; end Run 34. His lead was Midday Lycanroc, and he also had an Alolan Ninetales.

  • 11:24: Attempt #36. Hala, Acerola, Kahili, Olivia, blackout.
  • 12:23: Attempt #37. Hala, Acerola, Kahili, Olivia, blackout.
  • 13:23: Attempt #38. Hala, Acerola, Olivia, Kahili, Kukui, blackout. Still nothing new seen from Kukui's team.
  • 14:03: Nigel leaves the Elite Four and finds some TMs. Nebby loses its Sunsteel Strike for Rock Slide, while Zygarde gets more use out of the TM by overwriting Bind for it. Nebby also loses Sleep Talk for Flash Cannon.
  • 16:36: Attempt #39. Hala, Acerola, Kahili, Olivia, Kukui. Kukui has a Braviary and a Snorlax as well, but Nigel still can't see his full team.
  • 17:20: Attempt #40. Hala, Kahili, Acerola, Olivia, Kukui.
  • 18:10: The battle with Kukui begins with Lycanroc setting Spikes, then defeating Solgaleo. Zygarde easily gets revenge, then one-shots Alolan Ninetales with Rock Slide. Braviary comes out, flinches to the Rock Slide, then goes down to Thousand Arrows, and Nigel sees Kukui's fifth Pokémon: Decidueye. Its signature Z-Move, Bloom Doom, takes out Zydoge.
  • 18:13: Raticate responds with a Crunch, taking out Decidueye. A Crunch and a Sucker Punch almost finish off Snorlax, but Kukui uses a Full Restore. And another. Finally Raticate goes down, leaving only Fearow. Kukui uses Full Restore on Snorlax for a third time, but Drill Peck takes it out. Kukui's last Pokémon is Magnezone. Fearow is faster and hits it with a quadruple-effective Drill Run!
  • 18:16: Unfortunately for Nigel, Magnezone's ability is Sturdy. Magnezone hangs on and finishes Fearow with a Thunderbolt.
  • 18:27: Attempt #41. Hala, Acerola, Olivia, Kahili, Kukui. Solgaleo takes out Lycanroc, Snorlax, and Decidueye before going down. Fearow is able to get the better of Magnezone this time before going down to Alolan Ninetales.
  • 19:09: Alolan Ninetales barely survives an attack from Ariados and is switched out. Braviary takes out Ariados, but Zydoge finishes it. Kukui uses a Full Restore on Ninetales, but it's in vain. Zygarde wins! Nigel wins!
  • 19:19: Tapu Koko is battled and defeated.
  • 19:32: The credits finally begin rolling, as inputs are disabled to allow the streamers to back up the save.
  • 20:07: Looker (in disguise) gives Nigel the Enigmatic Card.
  • 20:57: Anabel is defeated.

  • 06:06: Fearow's Drill Peck finishes the Machamp, but Arcanine defeats Fearow with Flare Blitz and Extreme Speed.
  • 06:07: Zydoge uses Core Enforcer on Arcanine, then finishes it with a Rock Slide. Gyarados comes in and finishes off Zydoge.
  • 06:09: Nebby comes in, uses Giga Impact, and then gets outsped on the recharge turn due to the use of Dragon Dance. Two Crunches can't take it out, though, and Rock Slide finishes it off. Another Rock Slide and a Flare Blitz take care of Exeggutor. Trainer Blue defeated!
