Let's Play Pokémon Omicron, Episodes 1 and 2



Linkara begins a new Let's Play! This one is for the fan-made Pokémon game Pokémon Omicron! But does he have the swag to save his home from terrorists?



In episode 2, Linkara begins capturing Pokémon! It involves lots of butts. ‎

This is making me want to play Pokémon again. Damn you Lewis *shakes fist angrily at screen while booting up 3DS*

That was awesome, Hopefully I could catch when you do the live stream again.

Maybe next time pidgey will be yours.

I watched these also by clicking "Previous Broadcasts" on your twitch, but I'm glad you're releasing them here on blip as well in smaller chunks, because those streams are like 3 hours long each.

Though I'm also hoping one day I'll catch this live, because I'm sure nothing beats seeing these things in person and what else shows up in chat, which we can't see, but from things you say, it can only make me assume it's hilarious.

But I'm super-diurnal and 2 hours ahead of you.

This must be the future because fitting three Pokemon in one case is amazing.

Also if there's one thing I will say, your one of the few people who make playing Pokemon games fun to watch, can't wait for the next parts.

*INB4 the mighty Helix fossil starts channeling hundreds of thousands of seemingly random commands into Linkara's brain.*

Funny beginning to this Let's Play. Reminds me of when I used to play Pokemon Yellow on GBC because I used to like the whole thing for Pikachu alone. I couldn't get past the first gym because I have no patience for leveling up for 100 hours straight. I do have Pokemon Pinball because I love pinball games.

For future let's plays, maybe some superhero games like anything Marvel. I'm sure there'll be plenty of jokes abound!

Why does the screen keep turning blood red!?

Have to admit I stopped playing a while ago (was lured back in by Black and was disappointed). However this is just hilarious in how ridiculous it gets. Your mom just happens to be the champion. Criminals just went and invaded your town, but you need to worry about filling out a Pokedex.

Sigh, this just reminds me that the pokemon retrospective will never be completed now. Still we need to move on in our lives and live life to its fullest.

Awwww... By telling Jake you didn't like his swag you turned Swag mode off and missed Jake saying things like: '...so then I said, "Who needs Pokemon when you have swag?"' to Professor Oak.

Volvagia said...

Ten suggestions for future LPs (beyond this and Elite Force 2):

The Darkness I & II
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2
Superman Returns Videogame
X-Men Origins: Wolverine: Uncaged Edition
The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction
Justice League Heroes
Batman: Vengeance
Constantine

"Awwww... By telling Jake you didn't like his swag you turned Swag mode off and missed Jake saying things like: '...so then I said, "Who needs Pokemon when you have swag?"' to Professor Oak."

Oh, no! Is there a way to get it turned back on?

Go find... Wilson

"Hidey-ho there, neighbor!"

(I had to make the joke.)

Really love this Linkara. Please do some more

Before my recently acquired Pokemon X (husband currently has Y) my greatest exposure to playing Pokemon was Colosseum, took me a bit to get used to the wild captures but I think I'm doing pretty well. Oh and learning what the types actually do to one another since when you're snagging the pokemon from the 'bad guys' they all only have Shadow Rush.

I wanted so badly to be on the stream the second time you went live but I'm in that group of people that can't get Twitch to STAY. It reloads every 10-25 seconds and the reloads aren't quick.

Still, enjoyed the LP a lot, am looking forward to more.

P.S. anyone as super addicted to wonder trading as I am?

Max said...

If you catch a Weedle, you could eventually have a deadly bee Pokemon. Bees... my God...

"Oh, no! Is there a way to get it turned back on?"

You should be able to just go back into the school and tell him that you like Swag when you talk to him again.

"You should be able to just go back into the school and tell him that you like Swag when you talk to him again."

...Uhhh... he's not in the school anymore, as shown in the video. Plus the playthrough on twitch has gone for at least another session. We're like 5 or 6 hours into the game now. ^^;

Bluecho said...

To quote G. Watsky: I thought Swag was dead way before this.

Puto said...

You should've named the Rattata ‘Jay Leno’.

Jesse said...

Between you and one other LPer I watch on occasion, I'm really starting to think I've been missing out by not giving these Pokemon games a chance over the years, Linkara. It's always a good thing to reconsider these things from time to time.

I really enjoyed the commentary. Funny stuff.

I'll be stepping away from my computer for awhile once I submit this comment, so I haven't seen the next couple parts. I'm looking forward to seeing if you got your Weedle and Pidgey, in part to see if you name the Weedle Joss.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to more of this LP and the AT4W episodes you've got coming up in the next couple days.

Not really sure then. I know it was switched on and off by talking to him there but other than that - no idea.

WILSOOON!!!!

Sorry.

Also, looks like a blend of gen 3 and 4. Namely of FR/LG and HG/SS

Will said...

Can you please include the link to the Let's Play stream so we can tune in live when you play?

WilliamPorygon said...

Heh, I was thinking FEAR for the Rattata's nickname before you even brought it up.

I don't usually pay much attention to fan-made games, but this one looks pretty decent. I really like that they flat-out let you see your EVs and IVs, which really should've been incorporated into the games once everybody found out what they were. I also like the Generation 3 graphics. Gen 3 and 4 were the best graphics-wise I think. I don't mind 3D battles but (for me, anyway) Pokémon just feels more suited to a 2D overhead view on the overworld.

DriveByPost said...

You should have named the Horsea "Dead". Then, if it faints, your opponent will have beaten a Dead Horsea.

Also, thanks for bringing this game to my attention.

TechSY730 said...

Good think you are taking a "just accept whatever the RNG gives me" for your pokes for the sake of your stream.

I would so totally be save scumming and catching pokemon over and over again until I got one with the desired nature and ability (if it had multiple abilities).
Heck, since IVs are given to you straight up in this game, I would be tempted to keep going until I got at least decent IVs too. :D

Are you going to be EV training and/or going for competitive movesets?


Also, good choice on Horsea. Kingdra is a legit scary threat if trained right. Magmortor can also kick some butt, bad sadly doesn't have that terribly much going for him that other fire types can't often do better. And Victreebel...well, let's just say he is in the neverused tier for a reason.. :P

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"Are you going to be EV training and/or going for competitive movesets?"

Nope! We're in this for the story. As such, movesets are pretty much limited to "Whatever I feel like using," whiiich is usually restricted to "moves that do damage and/or status change moves like Toxic or sleep powder or thunder wave."
