Would You Rather: Pokemon Edition 2

krismii
To help celebrate Pokemon Month here on Double Jump, we’re going to play another Pokemon round of “Would You Rather?” The beauty of the main Pokemon games is the sheer diversity of your teams and how you go about completing your adventure, so there are so many different options as to what you can do in your save files. To start off, Rachel, if you had to choose one to join in the Hoenn region, would you rather join Team Magma or Team Aqua?

rachmii
Hm… Probably Team Aqua. My favorite color is blue, and I do love swimming. Honestly, I could probably join either team. Kris, would you rather make it through Victory Road and never win against the Champion, or not bother to try to get your gym badges at all?

krismii
I think I would love the challenge of getting my gym badges and going through Victory Road. Even if I never won against the Champion, going through Victory Road is a challenging feat in itself. I’d probably occasionally try again against the Champion, but he or she can reign from their throne while I continue traveling and bettering myself and my team. Would you rather be someone’s rival, always the antagonist to someone else’s story, or going through your journey with only your Pokemon team, always being mere acquaintances or a passing face to everyone you meet?

rachmii
I think I’d rather be a rival. At least I’d be known and I’d still have my team. Plus, no one said I had to be a mean rival. I could be like Barry from the Sinnoh Region.
Would you rather be able to explore only one region, catch only that region’s exclusive Pokemon, and never travel anywhere else, or would you like to be able to travel anywhere but only be able to catch Pokemon exclusive to your home region?

krismii
That’s a mean question! I think I’d like to travel to the other regions, perhaps keep my original team with me as my main partners. At the very least, if my home region is Kanto, I’d have a better chance of seeing those Pokemon out and about in the rest of the world! Would you rather be a Pokemon doctor like Nurse Joy or work with your Pokemon in catching criminals like Officer Jenny?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
I’m pretty sure you already know the answer to that. Work with Jenny, of course. Ever since I was little I wanted to be a detective of some sort. I would not do well being a doctor. Plus, Jenny has Growlithe. And no offense to Chansey, but I like Growlithe. Kris, out of everything there is for Pokemon, would you rather have the Pokemon Trading Card game because its main gaming source, or play all the Pokemon spin-offs games forever? (Meaning, the main journey games don’t exist.)

krismii
I’m definitely more into the games rather than the trading cards, so I would go with the spin-offs. The Pokemon Ranger games weren’t too bad, Conquest seems interesting, and the Mystery Dungeon games are unique where you get to play as the Pokemon. Speaking of being a Pokemon, if you were one, would you rather be part of a trainer’s team or live as a wild Pokemon?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
That’s easy! I’d rather be with a trainer. I like the companionship.
I’m out of questions, but if you have any more for us, leave them in the comments!

Would You Rather: Breath of the Wild Edition

Would You Rather? Breath of the Wild Edition

krismii
Since we’re a bit obsessed with Breath of the Wild after having played it for a little over a week now, Rachel and I found ourselves discussing what we would be doing if we were in Link’s shoes. It prompted us to do another round of “Would You Rather,” this time for Breath of the Wild. So, Rachel, would you rather live in Kakariko Village and assist Impa or live in Hateno Village and assist Purah?

rachmii
As much as I love Impa, I’d have to say Hateno Village with Purah. The tech stuff seems really cool and I would love to have the beach right there. Kris, would you rather only have the paraglider assist you to get around or only horses assist you?

krismii
Aww, what a tough question! While I love the paraglider and flying around, I would have to go with horses. There may be places where I wouldn’t be able to have them accompany me, but I would love the animal companions. And who doesn’t like horsies? Alrightie, would you rather have the shrines be all combat orientated or physics and puzzle based?

rachmii
Physics and puzzle based… You know me, I run from a fight. Would you rather go through the game using only tree branches as weapons (or the next weapon level up) or never be able to heal yourself (never be able to cook)?

krismii
Oh, geez… Considering how much I die, this is a tough question… You know what, I’d rather go through the game never being able to cook. I’m too interested in the multiple weapons to only go through the game with silly tree branches! Would you rather game over from battling a tough opponent or from falling off a mountain after running out of stamina?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
You would never beat the game then, haha! I would rather die from an opponent. At least I’d have a little dignity from that death. Would you rather only have close-range weapons or long-range weapons? Like, only have swords and spears or only have a bow and arrows?

krismii
Augh, I love both the swords and the bows in this game! Despite how horrible my initial aiming would be (I would hope I’d get better with practice), I think I would choose bows. The different number of arrows — ice, bombs, electric — alone would be fun! The long-range and going against armored enemies would be a fun challenge as well. Last one, Rachel: would you rather have lived 100 years ago and been a Champion while trying to rid the world of Calamity Ganon or wake up 100 years later with Link as being the last hope against Calamity Ganon?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Neither… I told you earlier, I’d run away from a fight. I’d probably have to say wake up as Link. We all know Link would win in the end and I’m not keen on dying.

Would You Rather: Pokemon Edition

wyr-pokemon

krismii
Back in December, we did a gamer’s version of the game “Would You Rather.” We had a fun time with it, so we thought we’d do another one. This time around we have a stricter theme and have decided to have the questions focus on Pokemon. To start off, Rachel, would you rather be a gym leader or a coordinator for the Contest Halls?

rachmii
Gym leader, definitely. I always had fun with the contests, but I found them to be a bit boring at the same time. I want to be where the action is. Plus, I want to be a big shot.
Kris, would you rather never evolve your Pokemon or only be able to evolve certain species of Pokemon?

krismii
It depends on the certain Pokemon species, really. I’d probably choose to evolve certain species while leaving others to stay in their first tier. I don’t mind unevolved Pokemon on my teams. Other than walking, would you rather travel everywhere by flying or surfing?

rachmii
That’s a tough one. I’d have to say surfing though, I think. While I would love to fly on the back of my Charizard, I don’t think I’d been too keen on the height.
Would you rather have a team of all the same type of Pokemon or a team of one Pokemon? (For example, a team of grass Pokemon or a team of all Bulbasaur?)

krismii
I wouldn’t mind being a type specialist at all. It would be deciding on the type that would be the problem for me! Would you rather raise an Eevee and never evolve it, or have its evolution be a complete surprise to you?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
That’s hard… I love Eevee, but I also love the special types other than Normal. I think I would rather evolve it and be surprised.
Would you rather have your main starter (like Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander) be a complete surprise or go into the wild and have the first encounter be your starter (like Pidgey or Caterpie)?

krismii
Oh, that’s a toughie. I’m honestly good either way, as a Pokemon is a Pokemon, haha! I’ll probably go for a surprise main starter, especially since they’re the rarer ones in the Pokemon world. One last question for the road: would you rather be a champion of a region and always defending your title and the land, or would you rather never beat the elite four and constantly travel while training?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Travel. I think I would like to see the world, especially all the different regions. It would give me and my Pokemon more freedom and I could train different teams. There’s just so much to do in the Pokemon world!

Would You Rather? Gaming Edition

krismii

For something fun this week, Rachel and I are going to play a video game edition of “Would You Rather?” Please feel free to share your answers in the comments as well! So, Rachel, would you rather vanquish evil in Hyrule with Link or help a defendant in a homicide trial in court with Phoenix Wright?

rachmii
Oh, starting off with a tough one, huh? Thanks a lot. I think I’m going to have to go with Phoenix Wright, though. I would love to visit Hyrule and hang out with Link, but I know me. I’m a coward. I don’t think I would last a day fighting evil in Hyrule. I think I would be just find making snide comments next to Phoenix from behind a bench.
Would you rather live in Luigi’s Mansion (with the ghosts) or live in the Twilight Realm in Twilight Princess?

krismii
Ha, it wouldn’t be a good game of “Would You Rather?” without tough questions! My first instinct for your question would be the Twilight Realm, despite its rather, erm, gloomy atmosphere. I feel as if I’d get annoyed rather quickly at the pranking ghosts in Luigi’s Mansion! Let’s see, would you rather live in the Pokemon world but have to be a Team Rocket member or live in the Mushroom Kingdom as one of Bowser’s koopa troopas?

rachmii
Team Rocket all the way! I would at least be nice to my little minions.
Would you rather live in the Pokemon but be allergic to them so you couldn’t have any of your own, or only be allowed to have a team of Bidoof?

krismii
Awww, I’ll go with the team of Bidoof! They may be a bit derpy-looking, but I’m sure they’d be loyal partners and have a versatile move pool. That, and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to live in the Pokemon world with allergies like those! Hmm, would you rather be an employee at Arkham in the Batman: Arkham series or deal with Creepers and giant spiders on a regular basis in Minecraft?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Oh, dear. Creepers and Spiders I think. I do a pretty great job at defending myself against them. And I can just hide in my house when they come out. I think if I was an employee at Arkham, I’d go insane myself.
Here’s a pretty simple one for you (since I’m running out of ideas), would you rather serve in the Mushroom Kingdom palace with Princess Peach or Hyrule Castle with Princess Zelda?

krismii
That’s… actually not so simple, haha! I think I’m more of a Zelda than a Peach fan, and Hyrule, despite its dangers, always seems gorgeous and full of all sorts of interesting people and races. Peach, though, is a sweetie and, even if Bowser invades every week, I’d like to think the Mushroom Kingdom is a very friendly place. Ultimately, I think I’d go with Zelda and Hyrule Castle. What about the rest of you?
