Hello everybody, and welcome to the discussion thread for the ME Plays Platinum video series now currently debuting on the Bulbagarden YouTube channel.
In this thread, you can:
  1. Discuss the latest episodes of the series.
  2. Makes suggestions or comments to Magnificent Entertainer for how to improve the series.
  3. Give nickname suggestions for any of ME's Pokemon still missing nicknames. (ME will threadmark posts where videos contain nickname requests. When a threadmark is removed, that means the request has been fulfilled.)
  4. Talk about your experiences while playing Pokemon Platinum version and/or follow along with ME's progress in the game with your own team.
This thread will be updated as new episodes are uploaded to the Bulbagarden YouTube channel.
This series updates twice a week: Tuesday and Thursday at 8pm CEST/ 2pm EST.

And that's about it. Since ME is a bit of a lazyass, this thread was started a little late into the series, so here is a the latest video in the series:

Have at it!

I completed Platinum's post-game (including the Battle Frontier) a few months ago and am now doing random bonus stuff. I'm missing one furniture for the Villa (the Chandelier, which requires 300,000 steps taken) and some Plate duplicates from the Underground (I may never find them all, given how rare they are).

Planning to replay through Black or White next.

I haven’t quite recorded that far, though I did just reach the Psyducks at the end of my most recent episode.
If I was playing the game on my own, I’d have been long done by now, but, since I have to setup for recording every time I want to play, and because I create and sequence all of the overlay scenes before recording the episode, it takes a little longer.
I’m not complaining, mind you. It allows me to enjoy some aspects of the game a lot more, specifically the berry farming, since I still water my berries and do all of the daily events even when not recording.

Gonna admit, I was the tiniest bit disappointed when I saw you leaving the hidden Wayward Cave room without catching anything, but Gligar is also a solid Pokemon, so that is acceptable.

For her nickname, how about something like "Gillian", or "Lucille"?

I considered Garchomp, but I've already got an extremely powerful early game Pokemon in Heracross, and Gligar is an extremely underrated Pokemon.

...That nature, tho. :lapras: :lapras::lapras::ROFLMAO:

I used Garchomp in my latest Platinum playthrough, and it swept house in most main and post-game. Getting Earthquake that early on is just broken.

Also: "Wow, it's dark and scary and wow that's horrible". *Vividly remembers the time when Kid Lone didn't have Flash and so just wandered the entire cave in the dark, several times fearing that he'd be lost in Wayward Cave forever, unable to use his Escape Rope because Mira wouldn't let him.*

Yeah. I’m trying to not make this game look too easy, but I definitely did want to point out that Gible is available this early on in Platinum.

And this is why I explained how to get TM70: Flash before you arrive at Wayward Cave, instead of waiting until you get to the Department Store in Veilstone.

Piplup, Budew, and Heracross all currently have nicknames. There is one teammate currently awaiting a nickname as of the most recent episode.

Well, as of the point where I currently am in my recordings, I've got a full roster of 6 Pokemon assembled.
I'll admit, it's much earlier in the game than usual for the full team, but that's just how it worked out this time.
