I don't know why I ever stopped doing this. [The snowy background today seems to be outside the Ecruteak Gym, with Lancer in a seasonally appropriate oversized jacket--with a secure and comfortable Wartortle poking its head out of the collar. That probably wasn't a standard accessory.] Guess I just got settled in one place too long, y'know?

[As for what 'this' is, Lancer seemed to be tossing a small metallic object to himself in one hand, and that Wartortle was looking awfully pleased with himself.]

But I guess we never did figure out if there was really a point to it, did we? Collect all the badges, nothin' really happens? At least there's some fun to be had out of gettin' them in the first place.

[He shrugged, frowning in what was probably an expression of thought.]

...Guess it'd be annoying if we were just dropped here with nothing interesting to do.

It doesn't seem like there's any point to collecting them. You get the first set of eight and... nothing. I don't think the second set of eight do anything either, but I haven't heard of anyone collecting all the badges.

[Mondo is sitting on a bench somewhere in what appears to be Goldenrod. He's not dressed for the weather, but he doesn't seem bothered by it any. Someone should probably tell him that the usual coat really isn't going to keep him from catching a cold.]

I guess they provide a nice challenge if you've got a team leveled up all the way, but I doubt it's too difficult if you've got a type advantage.

I'm sure someone has, but I don't remember hearing anything about it on the network. I guess a lot of people are happy just staying in one place. It's easier than traversing all around Johto and Kanto.

[ It isn't as if they're around each other all the time and these days, she's more prone to giving him space while she explored the area. There was a lot to take in about this world... a lot she overlooked the first time. ]

Congratulations on your victory, Cu Chulainn. [ Spoken around a cheek full of whatever she's having for lunch. ]

[ Slooooowly swallows her current bite and acts as if she hasn't been eating this entire time. No need for him to concern himself with her dietary habits right!! ]

Could we? [ Slowly conning him for all his dinner dates................ ]

From what I hear, there's no advantage to Breeders gaining the badges. Or is that wrong? You seem to know a bit about this place.

['Sup.]
crouching_sin: (so call me maybe?)

[personal profile] crouching_sin 2015-01-16 07:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Really? I was under the impression that those were the two classes here.

[Then again, he doesn't seem like the sort to not be a fighter.]

Oh -- is that like, a badge thing? So that means you beat the Gym?

Congrats...!

[ there's kind of an unspoken i guess tacked onto the end there because she's still a little unsure about this battling business. ]

Does it do anythin' neat?

Like a trophy, then? Somethin' you can flash at everyone an' be like "hey, look what I did!".

It's... kinda cool.

[ she gives him a grin. ]

What kinda Pokemon didya use?

[From watching the Network, Kaneki has managed to glean enough information that has somewhat filled in the gaps of his otherwise spotty Pokemon knowledge. Badges are...well, one thing he still really barely knows anything about.

He almost feels a bit embarrassed asking, but he doesn't have anything else to do so here we go...]


So...do the badges actually do anything? It sounds like people collect them just for the sake of doing it.
samsa: (Contemplative □ that book was so bad)

[personal profile] samsa 2015-01-19 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
Hm...yeah, you would think. I guess it's worth it if you like to travel.

[You also need certain badges to actually Fly and such, but he doesn't know that yet.]

[ There's a humming sound as Shirou stared intently at the thing Lancer was holding, unaware that his Gear was kind of recording. ]

H-huh?!

[ There's a jerk as Shirou snapped from his stupor, before actually responding to Lancer in a haste. ]

O-Oh, yeah! Sorry, guess this thing recorded me by accident.

enjoymyatelier: i am just done with this shit (ugh whatever)

[personal profile] enjoymyatelier 2015-01-17 09:37 pm (UTC)(link)
...ah, that really reminds me that I completely forgot about challenging Morty... perhaps I ought to consider doing it eventually, but you really have to put effort into it to make it challenging for the first set of badges if you've been there for a reasonably long time.

It's far less enjoyable if winning is the expected result instead of something less predictable.
enjoymyatelier: no seriously what are you doing (uhhhhhhhh....)

[video]

[personal profile] enjoymyatelier 2015-01-19 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
Precisely. I... really ought to outright dedicate a team to things like that, and I'm not entirely sure why I haven't.

There's no grand prize for getting them all. Believe me, I've done it-- all sixteen, and the most I've got to show for it is a ticket to a fancy cruise and some discounts in the shops.

[He shrugs, fidgeting with a Pokéball.]

They're good for practical purposes, I guess, like using Fly and Surf, but they really don't offer any huge incentives. Just small perks.
islandshore: (yeah right)

[personal profile] islandshore 2015-01-18 11:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Still, a cruise is an okay consolation prize. Just wish there was a bit more fanfare, you know? They make the gym challenge out to be this big deal, but when it's all said and done, you're left with one less thing to do.
