Announcer: Live, from Yuni Oha’s room! Welcome to Meow We’re Talking! The only talk show hosted by a Pokémon!
Announcer: And here’s your host, Meowth!
Meowth: Thank you, thank you! You’re too kind! Have you been looking forward to this show? I sure have. I’ve been counting down the days. We’ve got a special guest appearing on tonight show. They need no introduction. Put your paws together for Mime Jr.!
Mime Jr.: [Waves happily as walking to stage] Mime mime mime!
Meowth: Great to have you here, Mime Jr.
Mime Jr.: Mime mime!
Meowth: Now, those in our audience may be wondering why Mime Jr. is here. After all, today has been a day dedicated to video games. What does Mime Jr. have to do with this theme? Trust me, I’m way ahead of you. You may all know Mime Jr. as a lovable practitioner of mimicry, but what I bet you didn’t know is that Mime Jr. is one of the most dedicated gamers among Pokémon there is.
Mime Jr.: [Modestly] Mime mime, mime mime.
Meowth: Don’t be modest, anyone who’s watched you played knows how great your skills are. I wish I was that good. Tell us, how is it you got so good?
Mime Jr.: Mime mime mime, mime mime. Mime mime mime. Mime. Mime, mime mime. Mime mime.
Meowth: [Nodding] I see. It all started out by coping others playing video games, but eventually you found you had a talent of you own for it. How about you share with the audience some of your most impressive feats in gaming?
Mime Jr.: Mime, mime mime. Mime mime mime mime. Mime-mime mime. Mime mime mime mime mime mime-mine, mine mine. Mime, mime, mime mime. Mime mime mime-mime, mime mime. Mime mime mime.
Meowth: [Sounding impressed] Wow. That’s quite the list you’v got there. I thought beating Super Mario Odyssey normally was difficult enough, but you’re telling me you beat it without once pressing the jump button? I don’t know how that’s possible. And that’s probably the simplest thing on your list.
Mime Jr.: [Shrugs modestly] Mime.
Meowth: Speaking of crazy gaming feats, we recently witnessed Wobbuffet defeating Calamity Ganon in Breath of the Wild using nothing but a tree branch. No clothes, no shield, no bow, just a tree branch. I thought this was absolutely insane. What do you think?
Mime Jr.: [Indifferently] Mime mime mime.
Meowth: It’s okay? You think you can do better?
Mime Jr.: Mime mime, mime mime mime.
Meowth: Woah, you say he was cheating, because he upgraded his hearts and stamina first. You claim you can do it with no upgrades? Now this I have to see some day.
Mime Jr.: Mime mime mime. Mime mime.
Meowth: It’s a date. Now, what would you say your favorite video game is?
Mime Jr.: Mime-mime mime-mime-mime mime-mime mime.
Meowth: Super Mario Maker 2? An excellent choice.
Mime Jr.: Mime mime mime, mime mime mime. Mime-mime mime mime, mime mime. Mime mime mime. Mime.
Meowth: Wow, you practice playing random expert difficulty levels so you can be ready for anything, and you think that means you can beat anyone in two-player mode on any stage?
???: I accept that challenge!
Meowth: [With shock] Huh!? Who was that!?
Mewtwo: [Suddenly appears] Mime Jr., I challenge you to a one-on-one Mario Maker race! If you think you’re so good, prove it!
Mime Jr.: Mime mime!
Meowth: [Grinning profusely] Oh boy, this will be great for ratings! Okay folks, looks like we’ve got our self a contest. Let’s set up the Switches and play some Mario Maker!
Meowth: Okay, the rules are simple. This will be a two player Mario Maker race. First to make it to the end of the level wins. For those interested in playing along at home, the level being played here is a part of Yuni Oha’s very own Super Mario Continuum, a series of over 50 levels made in Mario Maker 2 designed to played together as a game with a story centered around time travel. The level in question is 8-?: Chrono Collapse Chaos. The level code is X9G-BF0-GXG. This level is the final level of the main game, taking place after the final boss fight. It features a castle that’s literally crumbling around Mario as he attempts to escape before its complete collapse. If you’re interested in playing this or other levels made by Yuni Oha, you can also see the entirety of his Super Mario Continuum game by entering his Maker ID Code, LKX-HBQ-GTG. With that business out of the way, let’s start this race! I’ll be providing play-by-play commentary. Players, are you ready?
Mime Jr.: Mime mime!
Mewtwo: I’m always ready.
Meowth: Okay! Begin! And they’re off! Both players manage to avoid the immediate falling saw blades, ejected off of the time machine! And oh! Mime Jr. is nearly crushed by the second falling block, but manages to squeeze through! Mewtwo hops right over the podoboo with expert grace! These two are neck and neck out of the gate! Now it’s on to the collapsing blue platforms! Mewtwo goes for three quick hops, while Mime Jr. performs and expert triple-jump! Ooh! Mewtwo grabs the first of the three 30-Coins for the level as it falls from the sky! Now our contestants must wait for for the wall before them to be destroyed, avoiding the falling debris in the meantime! That was a close call for Mime Jr., but it managed to avoid the debris! Now the Bob-omb has destroyed the wall, and the players may continue! What’s that!? It’s raining Boom Booms, it would seem! Both players avoid the falling mad lad, allowing it to sink into the lava! And now its a bombarding blitz of big Bob-ombs! Mewtwo is nearly hit by one, but manages to stay alive! Mewtwo is the first to the checkpoint flag! Can Mime Jr. take the lead back!? Looks like it’s going to be hard, as a stray falling Bill Blaster nearly hits Mime Jr. with a Bullet Bill as Mime Jr. attempts to navigate the collapsing floor! Both Mewtwo and Mime Jr. grab a Super Mushroom! Now they can take an extra hit! Mime Jr. manages to jump over Mewtwo in order to nab the second of the three 30-Coins! And look! A massive Bill Blaster has blocked the way! Our racers must now wait for it to sink into the lava to proceed! Looks like Mime Jr. is the first one up and over, taking the lead! Now the players deal with yet another wall that must be destroyed, while contending with collapsing floor and falling debris! Mewtwo takes back the lead once the wall is destroyed! Both players miss the third and final 30-Coin as they jump from one falling platform to the next! We’re in the home stretch, folks! Mime Jr. narrowly avoids being knocked off the final falling platform by a falling block! Things start getting more intense! The debris is falling faster than ever! Saw blades are flying! There it is! The ax at the end of the level! Whoever hits it first is the winner! We’re neck and neck! Either could take this and… Oooooh! Mewtwo is knocked backwards by one of the final falling blocks! Is this it!? Mime Jr. leaps at the ax! The ax falls! GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAL! Mime Jr. wins!
Mewtwo: [Enraged disbelief] No! How is this possible!? How could I lose!?
Mime Jr.: [Extends a hand to offer a handshake] Mime mime.
Mewtwo: [Sighs and shakes hand] Yes, it was a good game. You have my respect. I am done here. [Teleports away]
Meowth: [Under breath] Geeze, he could have let me interview him before he left. [Aloud] Congratulations, Mime Jr. You really showed your stuff.
Mime Jr.: Mime mime, mime mime mime!
Meowth: Any tips for aspiring gamers out there?
Mime Jr: [Ponders momentarily, then answers] Mime mime. Mime mime mime, mime. Mime-mime-mime mime mime. Mime mime mime.
Meowth: [Nods] Such profound advise. Thanks for being on the show, Mime Jr.
Mime Jr.: Mime mime mime!
Meowth: And that’s all the time we’ve got, folks. Want anymore gamin advise? Any other questions for Mime Jr.? The Team Rocket Q&A Session is nearly upon us. This is your last chance to leave a comment asking us any questions that may come to mind, and we’ll answer them all. Until then, thank you, and good night!
