Pearl Scramble Update #3
I think it's time for my third update.

- Misdreavus: Can't come out in bright areas unless last one left (Ungulateman)
- Kricketune (Faricimo): Use at least one sound move when sent out against a trainer, must be caught as one (Auramaster)
- Drifloon: Solo a Gym depending on nature to evolve, level up, teach Frustration & use it upon entry until beating E4 (BuddyBlueBomber)
- Burmy (Metapod): If Female, Evolve to Wormadam-S, learning Protect, Psychic*, Hidden Power & Fissure Before Palkia. If Male, Evolve into Mothim, learning Protect, U-Turn*, Hidden Power & Camoflauge before Palkia (Sprocket)
- Piplup (Big O): Moveset is Aqua Jet/Drill Peck, Hydro Pump/Flash Cannon, Flash Cannon/Hyper Beam/Ice Beam, & Protect/Double Team. Moveset Obtained before Invasion of The Galactic Building in Veilstone. Solo 3 Gym Leader Main Pokemon as Prinplup to Evolve (Paradox808)
*: Was initially Bug Bite, but later changed after it was discovered that neither Burmy, Wormadam or Mothim learn Bug Bite in Pearl. Bug Bite was replaced with Psychic (Wormadam-S) & U-Turn (Mothim) respectively.
The adventure so far in text in the hide tag.
I start to make my way to Hearthome City, taking on the trainers
along the way. Partway through the journey, I come across some
random in a suit who utters some random crap about creation and
other stuff. After he leaves, I continue on to Hearthome City,
along the way, Faricimo (Kricketune) learns Sing as I take the Exp.
Share off her and place her at the head of the party to really get
it on the same postcode as the other four Pokemon on my party.
When I finally arrive at Hearthome, a Buneary randomly comes
toward me and a person named "Keira" thanks me for apparently
"preventing it from escaping". I get told to meet her at the Contest
Hall where I go & meet Gym Leader Fantina (BlueBomber's got her
eyes on her) & get a Tuxedo & a random accessory. After finding
out that Hearthome City wasn't BlueBomber's (Drifloon) home, I
heal at the Pokemon Centre & prepare to head towards Solaceon,
when...Oh no! Someone appears & challenges me to a battle! =O
I send out Faricimo while Someone sends out a Starly. Faricimo
gets the first jump & lulls Starly to sleep with Sing. I then switch
out Faricimo for Treadshot (Pachirisu) as Starly continues to sleep.
Treadshot then finds an opportunity to Spark it, OHKOing the
Someone then sends out a Buizel (On a Pachirisu???) and it proves
to be a bad choice, Treadshot easily OHKOing it with Spark.
Someone then sends out a Grotle while Faricimo comes back out in
Treadshot's place. Faricimo gets the first hit as Sing lulls Grotle to
sleep. Faricimo then proceeds to use Fury Cutter. It gets two hits in
before Grotle rouses from his slumber, hitting Faricimo with Razor
Leaf, which doesn't do much damage. Instead of putting Grotle to
sleep (Which only has a 55% success rate), Faricimo continues to
use Fury Cutter, which does more damage than the previous two
Fury Cutter's, & puts Grotle in KO range, should Fury Cutter hit
next turn. Grotle replies with Razor Leaf, which does more damage
than the previous Razor Leaf, putting Faricimo in KO range (If
Razor Leaf crits). Faricimo uses Fury Cutter & it hits, knocking out
Grotle & leaving Someone with one Pokemon left.
Someone then sends in Ponyta while I switch out Faricimo for Big
O (Prinplup). Big O scores a relatively easy 2HKO with Bubble, as
it levels up & Replaces Bubble with Bubblebeam & wins the battle
After that, I heal at the Pokemon Centre before heading out
towards Solaceon Town. When I get there, I find that Solaceon
Town isn't BlueBomber's home and decide to leave Lost Tower
until the night (When I can catch my final Scramble Pokemon: A
Misdreavus). In the meantime, I make my way to the Wayward
Cave, or whatever it's called (With Doofus (Bidoof) back out of
the PC and into the party) to complete the side quest there.
When I get there, I traverse through the cave in darkness to find
some random kid with a Kadabra. I go through my repels pretty
quickly, and on the way out of the cave with the kid in tow, I find
myself sort of lost in the cave...With all my repels used up.
Countless wild & trainer battles later, I manage to find the exit
and get thanked by the kid. I then return to Oreburgh to heal,
stock up on repels, chuck Doofus back in the PC, & make my way
back to Solaceon Town, where I wait until the night before taking
on the Lost Tower (So I can catch my Misdreavus).
So, night time falls & I enter the Lost Tower. I then see a
Misdreavus cowering in the corner due to the light in the building.
I approach it and it starts attacking me. I send out BlueBomber to
whittle its health down with Gust. After a couple of Gusts, the
Misdreavus (Level 17) becomes very weak & scared. I see an
opportunity to chuck Poke Ball's at it. Three Poke Ball's later & it
stays inside one. I name it "Ungulate" (After the challenge giver) &
my scramble party is now complete. In critical healh, I return to
the Pokemon Centre in Solaceon to heal Ungulate.
After healing it, I find out that poor Ungulate has an extremely
bad fear of light, and that there was a forest near Solaceon with
Misdreavus in it. Recently, loggerscame and tore up the forest and
all the Misdreavus were forced to flee into the Lost Tower, with a
bad fear of light, they all started to cower into the corners of the
Moving on, and I equip Ungulate with an Exp. Share as I go up the
Tower. After completing the side quest there & obtaining the HM
for Strength, I then start to progress north of Solaceon & towards
Veilstone City (After dealing with Unowns). I beat the trainers in
Route 210 with Ungulate at the Front (And placing her at the rear
while in the Milk Bar), I then take the Exp. Share off Ungulate and
continue my push towards Veilstone through the wetness that is
The battles throughout the route were tough, & that led up to a
double battle against a couple of Ace Trainers, where I saw a
Gyarados for the first time, and it left a mark, KOing poor
Metapod (Mothim) before falling victim to a Big O Bubblebeam.
After that, I arrive in Veilstone, heal at the Pokemon Centre, & get
ready to take on Veilstone Gym for Badge #3.
And that's where we leave off...
And the team at the moment in the hide tag (Now with comments!)
Faricimo (Female Kricketune) @ Nothing
Comments: Quite underwhelming, needs a powerful move soon.
Treadshot (Female Pachirisu) @ Nothing
Comments: Since learning Spark, Treadshot has come out of its
shell and has been quite a force, & with half decent defences,
It does get a lot of Sparks in.
Metapod (Male Mothim) @ Nothing
Comments: Not that great, but HP Fighting has come in handy
against those pesky Hikers. True potential yet to be realised.
BlueBomber (Female Drifloon) @ Nothing
1 Level & Fantina's Mismagius Solo until Evolution
Comments: Pretty much the least used Pokemon on the team,
BlueBomber is doing well, despite the lack of powerful STAB.
Big O (Male Prinplup) @ Nothing
10 Levels & 2 Gym Leader Main Pokemon Solos until Evolution
Comments: Big O's workload has reduced significantly since
Treadshot learned Spark, but it is still a force in the party.
Ungulate (Female Misdreavus) @ Nothing
1 Dusk Stone until Evolution
Comments: Since learning Psybeam, Ungulate has been
a great team member. Curse the light!
That is all for this update.
