This is the worst part of the game, but rich in essential information and some liguistics.


I don't even want to proof-read this one. I hope you can forgive me.

Reading this, you can probably tell at which point I had a pounding headache and was feeling pain from merely thinking about sunlight.

Short one today. Another one full of "tell not show", but there's at least a big fight.

Oh man, time to slam my head against the wall repeatedly!


I'm almost at the point wher I got stuck in the previous playthrough. Easy place to get softlocked in, but this time I'm prepared, or at least have a better choice of pokeymans.

Happy New Year everybody! It's been a long time, but that's not because something bad happened or anything, but because I got too curious about Pokemon Rejuvenation and Desolation. Really got into those games, and had great fun despite their shortcomings.

Especially Rejuvenation has the problem with the plot being convoluted and incomprehensible, almost like they had no end goal in mind. While Reborn introduces its many characters gradually, Rejuvenation just throws new character at the player in handfuls throughout the entire game, and all of them stay relevant. The writer can't write to save his life, but I appreciate him.
It's a bit unpolished too, with some possible softlocks and script errors. Otherwise it's quite solid, and balanced similarly to Reborn.

Desolation, while also inspired by Reborn, has more of its own identity. That's not to say Rejuvenation is completely derivative, of course. The character poirtrats are beautiful, and they don't try to emulate Pokemon artstyle. The writing is possibly the best of the three games, able to make the player care for the characters

I didn't come back just to immediately disappear, did I? The tournament continues!

Despite everything, the tournament arc is still going.


Short one this time.
