Checkpoint 9

Yeah, I know, I am almost six weeks late. I won't do any commentary or joke on this this time. Given my lateness, I won't be picky with the submissions, and I decided all of the seven participants who've beat the League can compete to the Top Performers. You can applause them.

Top Performers (Checkpoint 9)
First submitter: Bramblebear (8th June, 5:28AM GMT)
Last submitter: EatPotatoz (19th June, 10:44AM GMT)
Most Seen: Magneton (37 Pokémon)

Top Performers (Checkpoints 1-9)
Data Collector: shadowlucario50 (204 Pokémon)

Speedrunner: tvbo (9 hours 52 minutes)
Slow and Steady: shadowlucario50 (178 hours 35 minutes)

The Fallen (Checkpoint 9)

Optional Checkpoints
The mandatory playthrough is now finished. For the Kanto region, we decided to divide its exploration in 5 optional checkpoints: 2 badges per checkpoint, plus a checkpoint to go to the summit of Mount Silver and battle Red.
Each checkpoint ends the next sunday, with the last checkpoint's end being the real deadline: July 19h at 6PM GMT.
The optional checkpoints should all be gathered in one forum post, once we reach the deadline above.

It is not exclusive to that run, but my favorite moment of GSC/HGSS is obviously to go through all these Team Rocket grunts and bosses and their SmokeScreen Koffing & Weezing, or Minimize Grimer & Muk. ::)

Performance Videos / Re: Recording is so hard
« on: May 03, 2020, 07:47:08 PM »
I tried to record myself for the first time recently, and YES MY GOD it is surprinsigly stressful. However, I was able to understand my state pretty quickly and to overcome it by just focusing on the piece and on all I already felt when playing it before that moment.

But the point of my post is in the second paragraph. I want to point out Zek's idea to record with a live audience and tell an anecdote of mine. Back in the Halloween weekend, I went to London with some friends to go and buy some things to the Pokémon Center which was open back then. I was waiting with one of them at the train station to return home, and we found a piano. After playing a bit, my friend asked me if he could record me, and I totally said yes. And I had no problem with it. I mean, my interpretation was absolutely HORRIBLE, but it is because I didn't practice piano for like, a month or more at that time, not because of some recording stress whatsoever.
I don't know if it is really relevant, because it is quite different to "let your friend records you" and "asking your friend to record you", but yeah, thought I could share it anyway.

Checkpoints 10 & 11

Hey! Last post of the first A-DAJ-IO Community Pokémon Playthrough!
So, these checkpoints were optional. And so, only a few did them. 4 out of the 12 participants to be exact.

The goal of these checkpoints were:
C10: Go to Undella Town and beat Cynthia;
C11: Beat the Pokémon League a second time.

To congratulate these four participants, I'm gonna showcase them by doing a (really) quick presentation of their team. Here we go!

King Kramer's team: Serperior, Volcarona, Lopunny, Reuniclus, Whiscash and Eelektross
Kpeng1's team: Audino, Stoutland, Bouffalant, Cincinno and Sawsbuck (a mono-normal team, if you look closer ;))
Magnet's team: Volcarona, Samurott, Braviary, Hydriegon, Krookodile and Eelektross
And last but not least, shadowlucario50's team: Purrloin. Yes, a single Purrloin. Don't ask me how he did it. (I mean, actually I know, but I gotta do the jaded man, so yeah, don't ask me.)

If you wanna take a closer look on their team or on the other participants' ones, I let you open that file: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1r4cccVRGKNmdoRsPrufIpu6ResoR8LJb12ukJTnCP2o/edit?usp=sharing
It contains all the details about (almost) all the participants' teams.

And if you wanna participate to a Community Playthrough yourself, then come and join this Discord server: https://discord.gg/UvzQ5Q4
A second playthrough is in preparation, and all the stuff happens there. A poll is currently up to decide which game we will be playing in this second playthrough.

In the hope of seeing you guys there, bye! ;)
