Now what in the fresh hell is this?

Well my friends, let me tell you a story all about how my life got flip turned upside down my good buddy Dan got me doing this. See one night, as we were roasting Dark Rising, he mentioned a more recent romhack called Pokemon Life Version. He said it was apparently really good according to what he heard, so I decided I would give it a try and maybe take some screenshots just to try it out.

I was wary starting out, if I may be honest. I didn't want my first potential Let's Play to be tainted by a Dark Rising clone. But as I played further, I was very pleasantly surprised by what I found as I went through the beginning of the game.

I waited until after everything was said and done with Dark Rising to do this, because I figured everyone needs a break after that colossal trainwreck. So, let's play a supposedly good game.

Without further adieu, I present, Pokemon: Life Version.

Chapter 1: Something More

When we first load up the game, we get this nice disclaimer. I actually really like this little touch, because if you browse sites like ebay you see a lot of romhacks pirated onto GBA carts and sold as 'legitimate' games.

Just a few screenshots I took of the intro sequence. Already we see a massive quality spike from our last subject of scrutiny.

I mean look at that, look at it and compare it to Dark Rising's title screen. I know I'm doing a lot of comparing right now, but this alone gives me some great first impressions.

There's not even a point to this screenshot, I was just really happy to see Pikachu's head intact this time.

As the opening sequence starts up, we're greeted by a frankly beautiful backdrop, and a Kimono Girl.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! VijPEhE

Now come on lady. Don't sell yourself short.

Who wants to bet this lady becomes important later.

I like how most of this manages to be the same as Professor Oak's opening schpeal, but still feels super-different.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! RvTcRlo

I'll be honest in that I generally only feel comfortable playing as girls in video games if afforded a choice.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Jt0p1UM

Lucky for all of us, I had the perfect name in mind when I went into this. And by that I mean I made a list of my OCs and drew from a hat.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Bt5c3qm

Perfect.

And so, the adventures of Astra in the... whatever the hell this region is, begin.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! P0isNEU
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! F2L0PB1

We open with someone calling us from downstairs. Our mom, perhaps?

There are item balls all over the room, which is what I assume she means by 'pack up your stuff'.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! BJkGIh7

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Gjw0hrC

I love that these are available right off the bat, to be honest, instead of having to rely on a professor to give them to you.

But before we go, why don't we take a poke around the room?

A wolf of Wall Street, perhaps?
(Art by the fantastic Coloursfall, he is my Broski and I love him)

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Iiuh1B0

Ah yes, I too am a frequent peruser of famous Pokeforums.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! HtgAxqD

It is a Wii.

Anyway, that's everything of note in the bedroom. Let's head out on our journey!

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 1iEOYxJ

I'm actually quite a fan of this. It's a house that's actually laid out like a house! It's refreshing to see, especially given the conventions of Pokemon games.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! NyftEfg

As we head down the hallway, this happens.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! KjLwWTo

!

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! WuOLMTN

It's a bit of a poorly timed screenshot, but this is actually how we get our starter! We start off with a Flabebe, which is really nice. Florges is one of my favorite Pokemon.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! J97N8x3

I think this is a nice name, don't you?

Anyway, let's check out anything notable in the house and move o--

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 27cWLqd

Oh.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! FT5Ww5O
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 9ZDOjVP
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Q92pKey

Oh, wow. It's not a mom! Thus marks the first Pokemon protagonist since the 3rd gen to actually have a father of some kind. That's a convention I never truly understood, to be honest. What, are all the protags bastard children? That's a lot of one night stands.

Also he's Blaine. Blaine is totally the raddest Gym Leader.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! CWYXq21

...You okay, dad?

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! A9MrHHU

Definitely not okay.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! N93EtAU

For... for what?

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! TpBgL7A
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 6uCH654
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! AUyJTuc

I- I don't know!

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! D72NNZh
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 0TmOXfE

You know, call me crazy but I think Dad is a little overprotective.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! RzHbG2m
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! QfYZUaF

Oh. Oooohhh. I get it now. Now I see why he's freaking out.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! M15BGp2

Well that's a change of heart.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! XhHOQ0j
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! YQ5HDMo
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! WGiq9Dj

Oh... oh no. What happened to my mom?

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 1BOyUam
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Zn7lT0b
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! KY61KxF
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Wzw89DJ

Um, okay. Thanks Dad. I guess. Anyway. Off into the big, bad world for us, seems like.

But not before we watch TV.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! MiBYc9s
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! CLrYkcJ

I'm going simply Gaga over it.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! MBgaX9Q

...?


Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! X7Fe509
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 55amvxV

Oooh, this is a pretty big journey, isn't it?

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! KHXLBcX

No wonder Dad was so tweaked.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 7cG6B9L

...Oh. That actually makes me feel kinda sad.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! OedbZ4b
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! NE449tP

This guy. I like this guy. Thanks, mailman!

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! JkZ2AG7

He's just looking out for us. What a swell guy.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Nfu7Nw9
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 2iq7sGW

They keep emphasizing this. Am I getting in way over my head?

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! FD7IkZ5

This guy, he understands me.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! IrFnTo0

True that.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! FCyYLE0
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! BeXQUKr

Thanks, mailman friend!

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! VY4FwF8

Astra and Mailman Friend walk down the path together, which is very nice and cute.

He teaches us about a very interesting feature of this romhack: Instead of saving from the menu, there are specific save points, that also sometimes act as Pokemon Centers. Because this was changed, a white-out effectively acts like a game over screen, sending you back to the title. On the one hand it means you keep your money, on the other is could also be a huge progress setback.

Can you imagine how absolutely infuriating this would be if this game were Dark Rising?

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 6PjmwD9

A region namedrop! We're powing around in the Nendios region, it looks like.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! 9wgjpIZ
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! WqxHrlQ
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! Xs3p6rd

You might think this is where we lead into the obligatory Pokemon-catching tutorial, but it never does.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! J6wAoA0
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! CnyfAJe

Just lets us off with a warning. That's a nice change.

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! P1AlaDU
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! AKY9IVt
Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! JafGTwb

Bye, mailman friend!

Let's Play: Pokemon Life Version! PX7HkFU

This is honestly a very sweet send-off.

We'll explore what the wide, wide world has to offer us on the next episode of Pokemon: Life Version! I'm excited.
