Les Enfants Terribles: May
Meet Jimmy the Fingers. Crass lyrics. Pardon me for just a second while I remove my jaw from the ground and wipe these tears of joy from my eyes. For you.

For now, just sit back and enjoy Mari's quest to reach that point! Wow, they really did fit an artificial waterfall in here!
Kayo Kyoku Plus: April
As mentioned in my previous update, Chuck is meditating under a waterfall, and will only be ready to battle you when you switch it off. Mari will need to climb a series of ladders and walkways staffed with Martial Artists looking for sparring partners to reach the crank for the water supply.
One cool thing is all the Martial Artists in this Gym use different kinds of Fighting-types - expect to see the hitmons, Machop, and Mankey in here. I swear the room looks bigger than the Gym does from the outside.
Penpals give great stuff! .JPN Soul Silver time!
I will spar with you! Sorry, I'm not a martial artist. However, I can indulge you in a pokemon battle! Go and win this one! Sally struck fast and fierce with Wing Attack! Machop used Seismic Toss! Only three hits will end your Golbat with damage like that! As most of you should know by now, Seismic Toss is a fixed-damage attack like Night Shade that deals damage equal to your experience level - especially handy when your actual attack stats can't overcome superior defenses, or when you fight a low-hitpoint critter like Shuckle.
Sally the Golbat at this stage can only take 3 S-Toss hits from the machops in this Gym, so Mari will need to spend some serious healing on her if she cannot 1-shot them. You won't have the chance - Sally, wrap this up quick!
Sally fiercely batters the Machop with another Wing Attack! I have a second Machop! This is going to be a long day Sally, make use of your new move! Sally stares the Machop in the face! Machop was mesmerized by the Golbat's swirrrrrly eyes and was confused! Confuse Ray - the number one reason why Zubat Family is disliked as a wild encounter. I don't mind turning this power against my opponents, and neither does Mari, heh heh heh. Not that evil move! Machop was so mesmerised, it stumbled and hurt itself in its confusion!
Seize your advantage, Sally! Sally the Golbat gives the Machop a good going-over with Wing Attack!
It was a critical hit! I hate fighting bats! They're great for speed training, mind you. Then I must man up and train against them! Mari speaks the truth - the Zubat Family yields speed Effort! Sally the Golbat is evolving! I've finally evolved her! Sally has evolved into Crobat! Several Martial Artists and lots of Fighting-types later, Mari finally reaches the top of the walkways, Sally in tow with a bottle of Moomoo milk hung around her neck so she can drink it with a straw.
The roar of the waterfall dies out as the water flow is cut. The large sluice that the water was pouring from folds up and into the pumps at the back as the flow dies to a trickle.
Reminds me of those fancy machines I saw on Pythagoras Switch. Time to face Chuck! Yotsuba Kowai has watched and loved it, and it features a theme song done by Kuricorder Quartet, who also does the soundtrack of Azumanga Daioh!

Mari has good taste in TV: D In the basin of the artificial waterfall is Chuck, sitting atop a boulder. Mari, Gnaw, and Sally approach him. You must be the one who turned off the water.
I see you have quite a few badges already, eh? Bested Morty and Whitney even. They weren't easy to beat. I am Chuck of Cianwood, and I am a real martial artist who trains alongside his pokemon. Please, step back a safe distance and allow me to demonstrate the strength I have gained from training with my Poliwrath. Creative storytelling license ahoy!Quartet 14" x 14" Magnetic Dry Erase Frameless Board
As Mari and her pokemon take a step back, Chuck climbs to his feet partway, then rests his fist on the boulder he had sat on. Gnaw and Sally are shocked at the human's display of raw strength! I have thus shown you my move, one that I have taught to my pokemon. Do you still wish to challenge me for my badge?
Gnaw, noticing Mari's slowly draining confidence, pats her gently on her shoulder and tries to smile reassuringly in a way that should say "I can take this guy's pokemon on, don't you worry. Nevertheless, Mari understands his gesture, disconcerting though it may have been to another person.
Thanks for your vote of confidence, Gnaw. I accept your challenge! To speed things up, I decided to script this as a Double Battle even though the real fight with Chuck is in 1v1. We sat ourselves down on the grass for some of the Love and Rockets set.
Very much rock, and very enjoyable indeed. I felt inspired to perhaps give them some room in my iPod. Next up was nearly two hours dancing up a storm in the Sahara tent, first for the raucous and humorous Modeselektorand then for dastardly duo Simian Mobile Disco. The crowd was insane for both groups, and it was all sorts of over the top and crazy in the tent.
The lighting was intense, best light effects of the weekend by far. Modeselektor and Simian Mobile Disco were in top form, and people were dancing up a storm. I soon left the fray and headed to the calmer back end of the tent to sit down, but the tent was absolutely throbbing. The night finished up with a trip to the Mojave tent, for that Canadian psych-rock juggernaut Black Mountain. Hot damn they were good. Everything was coated with the 60s and 70s, and several of the band members even looked like they took a wrong turn at It was sheer retro-rific bliss.
Vive le Black Mountain! And so ended the final day of Coachella. We scurried out to avoid all the Roger Waters fans, and made it out of the parking lot before the masses.
