    Angry Pmd (All versions): Annoying Client Moments During Exploration

    Pokémon clients can be very annoying during exploration.
    One of the annoying things is that if a client stands next to a Pokémon and you want that he or she move away from the Pokémon. But instead of that, the client attacks and there goes the client or you lose a Reviver Seed...

    I had that a few times today. World Abyss is really a dungeon that kills clients!!
    Why? Nidoqueen's Earth Power!! That's for pmd 2 & sky...
    Shimmer Desert is the same, but less difficult. And Nidoking is annoying with Dugtrios together!!


    Do you have annoying moments with clients? Or do you have tips to evade those moments?
    Then this is the right place to do that!

    Here's my tip:

    Get a lot of Reviver Seeds with you and make sure that you have enough.
    How further the goal, the more you'll need.

    This is why I always carry a boatload of reviver seeds with me.

    This or when the client decides that he wants to be a hero and then gets himself killed or, *Runaway activated* they start running away from you, potentially into death D : that's irritating and so are the warp traps when you get seperated DX

    Now you've mentioned the warp trap moment... I had that a few years ago for the last time...

    Even though that those moments happened to me a lot without the client...
    Explode traps are also annoying!

    I was doing a rescue in EoT at Sky Tower one day.

    I made it to the floor, which was like the 35th, and it was hailing! My client Ponyta's ability run away activated and I couldnt rescue it. So I just followed it around until it fainted.

    Clients that have run away were difficult to manage, since they run away when HP is low. Lost a few of those missions...

    When you're trying to escort like a Lv.3 rattata through like a 60 floor dungeon just so it can get to it's friend and you can complete the mission. -.- The amount of times the client has died doing this. Absolute pisstake.

    Magikarp wants to meet Sunkern at floor 94 of Wish Cave>
    How the heck does a Sunkern get that far, while I barely make it to the 20th floor?

    Well that just... sucks :1

    Basically the whole trying-to-be-hero act. And that is why I always prepare a one-room move before entering a dungeon.

    Any Ghost type client that I have to rescue. They're always inside the walls, or in some other unreachable place. I mean, I do have a Moblie Scarf, but early on in the games, I avoid any and all clients that can go through walls.

    You k law in the Mystery Dungeon blue and Red rescue team? Those Nidoran girl and Nidoran boy couple! One time they got stick in SKY TOWER SUMMIT 9F!! And they're only level 5!!! How does that happen?

    That's pretty much why in MD Time I always do outlaw jobs or item seeking ones. Clients are stupid.

    When the client decides to randomly stop on a trap that I already made visible... Or when the enemy Pokes have Omnious Wind/Discharge/other cheap moves like that...
    I'll put something here...eventually

    Ugh, there were moments I had a really stupid client who just decided to walk off in a random direction, and I had to swerve back to get them before they ran into trouble.

    Then there was that Gastly client I had where I had to rescue him at the canyon. Stupid AI...

    Considering in PMD2 the client is always level 7, and the dungeon's pokemon are almost always in the 40+ area, I generally just avoid that type of mission. :I

    Definitely when they attempt to fight.

    Wasting my damn reviver seeds.

    Back in my blue rescue team, I could never beat the mission where you had to escort gengar. He always walked into the walls into some ridiculous battle.

    Default Another stupid moment, but with a pleasant surprise!!

    Sky:

    Today I had 3 jobs that took place in Marine Resort.

    - Rescue Chinchou 12F
    - Explore with Weepinbell to 15F, Golden Chamber (Client exploration)
    - Treasure 17F, it was a Joy Seed!! No key needed this time


    When I entered 10F, the monster house was in the starting room... so got into trouble again...
    But Pikachu used Discharge, so luckily all Pokémon were defeated in one move

    14F
    Weepinbell thought that he was a hero, so he battled Smeargle... I used Rollcall, but we got separated :/
    The same Smeargle faced him again some time later... still alone.

    I'll quote the message log:

    Weepinbell used Vine Whip!
    Smeargle took no damage!

    Smeargle used its regular attack!
    Weepinbell took 7 damage!

    Weepinbell used Growth!
    Weepinbell's Sp. Atk. rose slightly!

    Smeargle used Growth!
    Smeargle's Sp. Atk. rose slightly!

    [Same like the last 2 ones]

    Weepinbell used Vine Whip!
    Smeargle took 36 damage!
    Smeargle was defeated!

    For the first time ever, the client defeated a Pokémon that is much stronger than him!!
    Weepinbell was a lv. 15 Pokémon...
    Nothing happened until next floor.

    Just had one today on Time.

    I was trying to do 4 missions at a time as I always do at Mt. Bristle. My client was a Shellos. We were almost at the stairs and this Doduo was following us. Shellos used Mud Sport, Dodue is now 2 squares away. I try to move to the stairs and instead if following us, he uses Mud Sport again! Doduo usedQuick Attack, knocked him out, and I was transferred back to the Guild. AT FLOOR 6! If I don't get picked for the expedition I'm going to murder him >_<

    Just had one.
    I had to escort Wailord to... Guess what? Seedot. In Buried Relic floor 97.
    I accepted since I was going to hunt for Gulpin anyway.
    I'm on floor 84, and my battery was getting low. I discovered a pitfall trap, and both Gulpin and Wailord Fall in it, making me lose Gulpin, and making me transport back to home because THE Wailord "fainted".

    Yeah, I do outlaw missions a lot. I hate the stupid level 7 Empoleon I got the other day...it kept trying to use Peck on everything at Zero Isle. I was like "Dude, calm down"

    Oh God Client missions. The horror. I really don't understand them.

    "Escort me to my love! We're supposed to meet!" if you want to go on a date with your girl, do us a favour and meet up with her in Pokémon Square, NOT THOUSANDS OF FEET BELOW THE MAGMA FILLED EARTH IN MAGMA CAVERN.

    But I digress. T/D/S did help us a bit, since now the pokémon is always at level seven, but you know those missions where the reward is the client joining you? I escort someone to a certain floor, they ask me to join my team, I say yes. Off to the assembly to check my new team member. He's level 1.

    Someone please tell me why the creators did this. I still haven't got a clue why the hell a level seven reverts back to level one when he joins a team.

    What I find annoying is when you do one of those outlaw missions where you get joined by magnezone, the high big sheriff who you see arresting every outlaw you catch, from the very weakest to the very strongest. But when you enter the dungeon you find out the guy is weak as hell, not only do you need to protect him but you have to make sure the outlaw you need to capture doesn't hit him cause it's instant death. How does it make sense that when you steal an apple an army of overpowered keckleons come to kill you while the sheriff loses to pretty much everything?

    This was especially horrible the first time, when I didn't know Magnezone would be a liability instead of an asset and I was doing a lot of outlaw missions, most of them where above my level but I just kept using my smokescreen so that they would hit only once every so often when whiffer ended. Normally no problem, my team could survive one-hit but it turned out the big guy couldn't >_>

    Oh dear Arceus. Back in Explorers of Time, I wanted to have the Golden Mask so I'd have higher chances of recruiting any pokemon, but I also didn't want to deal with Zero Isle, so I decided to use Wonder Mail to get it as a reward. That felt like cheating, though (probably because that's exactly what it was), so I decided to give myself a fairly difficult mission so that my Golden Mask would feel at least somewhat legitimate. The mission I created was to escort a pokemon to meet a friend at Bottomless Sea B49F.

    Knowing this would be pretty dang hard, I brought along six reviver seeds and made Palkia the leader, since he could clear out Monster Houses and attack threats to the client anywhere in the room with Spacial Rend. For the most part, things went fairly smoothly. The valiant brigade was on the 48th floor and only two of the six reviver seeds had been used. At this point, it seemed utterly impossible that things could go awry; at long last, victory was firmly within reach.

    And then, by a cruel trick of fate, my happiness was abruptly shattered. Arceus was in a wicked mood that day, and so He nefariously placed a Warp Trap in our path, sending the client far, far away from the rest of the team, to the room with the stairs - and an enemy. With no way of quickly getting to the client, all I could do was watch as, with each step I took, the enemy cut down my idiotic and helpless companion, a reviver seed disappearing each turn, until the hapless client could rise no more. And thus, on the precipice of victory, my quest for the Golden Mask was rendered a failure.

    After all this happened, I promptly shut down the DS, raged for a while, generated a Beach Cave mission, and got my Golden Mask easy-peasy.
