hm...i just got back from the store and i seem to remember most of my trip so bear with me, because i've never done one of these posts before.
from my house to the center was about 7 train stops away...not that far tho.(a new V train wtf?)=Þ
in rockefeller i took some sightseeing, the famous "Tree" and i also did some ice skating
(cant count how many times i fell..)
and eventually i ended up at the store.in one of my replies i stated that when your're in the store for a long time, you'll get sick of pokemon, and thats exactly what happened.toys after toys and merchandise i almost barfed.big time.what do you expect,this place is fit for a kid.
i went upstairs past the dolls and pokedex and i figured that i'll get some new pokemon.
at the catchem machine(where u stick your cart in) i was thinking,what will it be,the three dogs or one of the birds...HA! it turns out to be a celebi! *cheers*.at first i thought i was lucky but everybody was getting one too.-_-;there was only one machine out of four that was working,because of kids probabily chewing it or something that there were some employess standing around it teaching kids how to put it in and telling them "you have to have 5 pokemans in your party.."they were practically guarding the machine.lol
anyways, i was looking around for something interesting and i see all the new merchandise (pokemon mini $39.99 WTF!!!111oneoneone) and the newyork version of the advance gameboy(99 bucks..not tOO shabby)
and some huge dolls of marill and tyranitar
(yeah that'll scare off the bedmonsters at night).
right next to the catchem machine was a pair fighting each other.well, thats what i came here for,i thought. argg...dumb mew2 users.one of them used a mew2 lugia hooh and im guessing what the other three were..hmm..
there was one kid standing next to them and i asked them if i can take the winner, and he told me to fight him.sure i said.
here we go:
1ST BATTLE OF THE DAY(hence the cornyness of my titles)
he used(if i can recall):
I used:bliss,jolt,wak,'lax,zapdos,and forretress
he started with amphy and i chose forretress.
he starts to brag how hes undefeated and im just smirking at his confidence.im thinking,is he smart enought to use firepunch?so i spiked him and he used FIREPUNCH! its going ,its going, its....DOWN TO 1HP! *whew*. i switched to 'lax and started to curse up.he says and i quote "WHEN THIS hits,it'll paralize you"

OMFGZ its a mEW2!MEW2 USED FUTURE SIGHT! SNORLAX USED BODY SLAM!MEW2 FAINTED!my first human mew2 kill.wowser.
after that i thanked him.good game!i said.hiding my true feelings..
remember the two people fighting each other?well, they were still at it with their flying hoohs.in about 15 minutes(GB battles take a F%#$kin long time) one of them faced me and i was hoping for a better match but....
cHi-cHi's 2nD MATCH OF THE DAY!
he used: 2 LUGIASWTFWTF,raikou,HO-OH,CELEBI(sHiney,gamesharker..)and a Xatu.-_-
so i started off with my JOLteon while he starts with lugia(which one?XD).i was hoping for jolt/wak but he earthquake's my sub.bleh.i switch to snorlax.i curse up,he keeps on quakeing,and some aeroblasts along the way and i k.o it.my worse troubles are over i thought.think again.
ANOTHER LUGIA! oh god.he manages to get a critical hit and i keep slammin for the kill.
he sends out raikou.RAIKOU USES ZAP-CANNON! SNORLAX BECAME PARALIZED! XP. I quake that son of a biatch.
he starts telling me, your 'lax is going down cause i have perish song!.thanks for telling me,i thought to myself.he chooses celebi,SURPRISE! its shiney! OooOooO..
I slam it.bout 15% left while he p.songs..damn.i manage to kill it while it tries to recover.aww poor little sprout.teehee.
he chooses ho-oh.i slam it and he starts recovering.damn it,trying to stall..while my perish song goes down to 1.I switched,and he starts telling me,DAG YO! YOU KNOW HOW TO ESCAPE PERISH SONG??XD.i next chose blissey, who has not gotten any ass lately.do you know whats fucked up?
Ho-OH USED AEROBLAST!WTF
BLISSEY USED COUNTER!HO-OH FAINTED!
lollollollol....but it did feel right.doing that to a sharker.
he chooses natu.he keeps asking me what does counter do,and i explain to him FULLY.he starts telling me he never knew because he threw that ol' r/b/y tm away.like i care.
even thought he knew,
XATU USED DRILLPECK! BLISSEY USED COUNTER!
..and you know what comes next.*sigh*
after that we got to know each other.he wasnt that young, which scared me the most.he was 15,yet he didnt know much about the moves.oh welz.he came from brooklyn.and he was there for the same reason i was, the battles.rite there i sorta had some respect for him.
as I went around the other side staring at kids playing stadium2 and super smash brothers melee and I see 2 asian kids(im asian too woopee) getting some celebi's on their game packs.my second opponent faced one of them first.the other kid didnt have lv.100.aww.i was rooting for my second opponent because he needed it,knowing how asian people and games go along.hehe,robble8)
lets call me second opponent num.2 shall we?
num.2 kept asking me what had better accuracy, blizzard or thunder and i told him blizzard,for the heck of it.while he was getting slaugtered playing one of the asian kids i wanted him to try to get a freeze or 2 since this is the christmas time of year..lalala.in the end he lost and told me "YO,THAT KID IS HARD!HE USED DUBLETEM!"
i replied whatever and i asked the asian kid for a battle.he said sure.yay.
cHi-cHi'z LAST BATTLE OF THE DAY!(fuck my stupid titles)
he used:MEW,MEW2,LUGIA,scizor,miltank,and espeon sortov, ill tell u later.
he first sent out mew(ohboy..) and i sent out jolteon. i used sub while he d.t's=(
i agility while he d.t's again and i baton pass it to.......WaKurMaMA! ..ahem..marowak.
he used return on my maro switch and used return again while I s.d once.OMG iTS! the jolt/wak combo!..LIVE!heh.i was thinking that the d.t would screw me over so i tried a quake, and it hit!one down.
num.2 kept looking.and he started to tell me that i cant finish everyone with just marowak,still chuckling from my maro name.i just ignored him and went on. num.3(present opponent) then sent out lugia.OoOo..smart i thought.i tried a rock slide,MISS! he used surf.down to bout 60% i thought.i tried a rock slide again,MISS! arg..this is really starting to be a pain in the ass.he surfed again bringing my wak to bout 9% when num.2 tells me that its over."its never over!"i said.not too loud tho.or i would sound like rocky.i tried a rock slide, hoping to take lugia down to 15%tOPS and u know what?IT wAS A OHKO!hmm.. i thought to myself.not dv of 15 i was guessing.XD
he next sent out GoT-MilK?..gee i wonder.lol.
num.2 kept telling me that it cant ohko(boy what inspiration huh)so i kept on quaking.poor cow.tsk tsk.
scizor was next.num.2 said "EARTHQUAKE CANT OHKO SKiSOR!I TRIED IT ONCE!"XD..
WaKurMoMA USED EARTHQUAKE!SCIZOR FAINTED!
BOW TO THA MASTER!!MEW2 WAS NEXT,so to speak.
bout now the match wasnt much of a excitment
i used hp-bug for the k.o and num.3 goes like..."WHUT THE HELL??"
well, after that he sent out espeon and ran away(GB wise) and said he had to go.o_Ô riiiighhhhttt.he told me that my marowak wasNt NORMAL.hahe.To me thats music to my ears,at least he didnt say U CHEATED!XD.i still got the win though.why do i still see him playing the card game later on when he had to go huh??heh.
in conclusion, there are plenty of n00bs out there, and based on the number of people i faced in the center(total amount of trips), its pretty safe to say that i am ONE of newyorks best.yay.
it was gettin dark out(4:00pm wtf) and i was sick of the place too.advice to those that go there:bring multiple game paks! i asked the employee's and they said that new pokemon come up every WEEK on the catchem all machine and this week was celebi.and if you're lucky u'll get a shiney one!OoOO.
one of my friends got a mysteryegg.i then thought...oh i see.you had to go throught the part that you get the egg from prof.elms aid because it'll get mixed up if u get a different egg than the usual togepi egg to advance throught the game.one mystery solved.hurray.
anyways,num.2 said bye to me and i asked him for a screename of somesort and he didnt even hear of aol or the other companies i mentioned.heh.so we just parted.
i then went to go play lazer tag! hehe.mad fuNNage.oh welz..that was my day.read it.you have nothing to learn from it.this report will give you a feeling of how the pokecenter is like for those who like far like,in africa.tell me how u like it!byebuy.
