Re: pholtos Text Adventures - Pokemon Crystal

So basically if it looked like this? https://i.imgur.com/szW9XOD.png Looks good to me. Two-column text is nice and compact compared to one-column, and the text itself shows up much bigger than it does in the original image blocks (particularly when your browser window is narrow).

Re: pholtos Text Adventures - Pokemon Crystal

I must admit, even now that Reborn's starting to teach me the appeal of powerful, inaccurate moves, I'd probably still slap Surf on everything, just because it has such a good power-PP balance (the amount of damage you'll get out of 15 Surfs is probably better than 25 Water Guns or 5 Hydro Pumps, ev...
