The adventure in text...
I set out for Lake Acuity, & when I get there, I watch some
interlude between Someone & Jupiter. After that, I see that there
is a TM for Ice Beam on Route 216 only obtainable after beating
Candice & decide that I need it (It's compoulsory before the
Galactic invasion of Veilstone thingy), but first, I need something
that can use Rock Climb...Unfortunately, Big O (Empoleon) was the
only one that can use the HM, & none of my PCed Pokemon can
learn it...So I decide to catch a Pokemon that can learn Rock Climb!
So I fly to Route 209 & find a Bibarel, catching it in 1 Great Ball.
I name the Bibarel "Slave", head back to Snowpoint, get her out of
the PC, & teach it Rock Climb. I then run to the Rock Climbing area
in Route 216, climb the rocks, defeat the trainers, & obtain the Ice
Beam TM, teaching it to Big O. After that, I fly to Veilstone, & aim
to get the TM for U-Turn, which requires 6,000 coins. I find that
I don't have enough, so I steal 40,000 Pokedollars off the
Gentleman & Socialite on Route 212, & get enough coins to get the
U-Turn TM, teaching it to Metapod (Mothim).
After that, I enter the Galactic Building via the warehouse, only to
find that a random spacesuit guy was holding the key to advance.
After stealing the key, I open the door & find a Dusk Stone, using
it on Ungulate (Misdreavus) & evolving it into Mismagius!!! :D
I deal with the Grunts, steal the Galactic Key, & use it to enter the
Main Building, knocking out the Grunts & finding the leader of the
spacesuit gang (Cyrus) & confront him.
I send in Treadshot (Pachirisu) while he sends in Murkrow.
Murkrow, however, was easily outsped & OHKOed with a Choice
Golbat comes in, & deals two turns worth of frustrating Flinch-Hax
with Bite, before missing with Supersonic & surviving a Discharge.
After that, Cyrus uses up a Super Potion (What is it with Crime
Syndicate leaders & using Super Potions even though at this point
in the game, a Hyper Potion is better?), which proved to be a bad
choice, as Golbat gets KOed by Discharge.
Finally, Sneasel comes out & Metapod comes in to deal with the
weasel type thing. Metapod deals about 50% Damage with HP
Fighting, but gets OHKOed by Ice Punch...So Faricimo (Kricketune)
comes in, & after surviving a Slash, Faricimo misses with Sing. She
then survives another slash before KOing with X-Scissor, winning
me the battle.
After that, Cyrus dully gives up a Master Ball (Why would you?) &
tells me that he's heading somewhere. I then head through a
random Warp Panel & find myself in a room with 3 floating pixies
in it & the weird haircut guy. I confront him & challenge him.
I send in Metapod while he sends in Kadabra. Kadabra abuses his
first move advantage to use Embargo on Metapod (And that was a
good thing, because...) while Metapod U-Turns into BlueBomber
(Drifblim), OHKOing the Psychic freak.
BlueBomber stays in for Bronzor & after BlueBomber does lol
damage with Frustration, Bronzor uses Confuse Ray, annoying the
crap out of me. After wasting 2 turns due to BlueBomber hitting
herself (Where Bronzor Spammed Shadow Ball), BlueBomber got
her act together & KOed the metal plate two turns later with
Last came Toxicroak, & after surviving a Fly, Toxicroak KOes with
a Critical Hit Poison Jab. Big O comes in to deal with Toxicroak,
Outspeeding & KOing with Drill Peck, winning me the battle.
After that, the weird haircut guy dumbly allows me to hit a switch
to let the 3 floating Pixies free. After letting them run free, I
leave the Hideout to heal up at the Pokemon Centre & get ready to
start trekking Mt. Coronet. First, I returned Metapod tonthe PC &
brought Slave back out, teaching her Rock Smash & Surf.
I fly to Oreburgh, & begin trekking Mt. Coronet, when about
halfway, I saw that Faricimo wasn't up to standards & because I
didn't need Strength to complete the trek, I returned to Oreburgh
& subbed Faricimo for Metapod.
Alright, Take two. I climb up Mt. Coronet, dealing with the
Spacemen & when I got to the top, I saw a bunch of weird more
powerful Spacemen & decided to gatecrash their party...The
Spacemen weren't happy with me...So the two most powerful of the
"Minor" Spacemen challenged me to a 2v2 battle. After dealing
with the bozos, I continued to charge forward, only to be double
teamed by Mars & Jupiter...When Someone randomly appeared &
decided to make it another bloody 2v2 battle (Thanks Someone for
complicating the battle). >_>
I Send out Metapod, Someone sends out Munchlax, while Mars &
Jupiter both send out Bronzors. Metapod U-Turns to Treadshot,
who starts Discharging (Not giving a care for Someone's
Munchlax) While The Bronzors start Flinch-Haxing Munchlax.
Jupiter's Metal Plate is the first to go down & Skuntank comes in.
Next Turn, Treadshot Discharges again, killing Mars' Metal Plate &
Someone's Munchlax, while Skuntank quickly sends Treadshot to
oblivion with Poison Jab.
After the mass culling, I send in Big O (Whose Attacks I will now
be referring to as what was coined in the original challenge post)
while Someone sends in Staraptor (God I hate that thing) & Mars
sends in Purugly.
Staraptor quickly shuts down the feral cat, OHKOing the bastard
with Close Combat, While Big O lets loose with Cannon Party
(Hydro Pump), KOing the Skunk.
Mars & Jupiter then sent in their Golbats. Staraptor bullshitted the
Golbats, using Quick Attack on one of them, While Big O OHKOed
the other with Chrome Buster (Ice Beam). One Golbat left, &
Staraptor gave me the shits, KOing the remaining Golbat with Take
Down before Big O got to attack. Battle over.
After that, Someone Fully Healed my Party (And why would he do
that?). After listening to the dialogue, The Spacesuit leader (I
mean, Cyrus) confronts me & challenges me before I get to save... :(
I send in Metapod while Cyrus sends in Honchkrow...Bad Match
Up...Metapod tries to U-Turn, but Honchkrow outsped if &
OHKOed with Wing Attack.
Treadshot Comes in & Deals hefty Damage with Discharge, only to
get belted with...Steel Wing? Okay...Treadshot doesn't take much
damage though. Cyrus then Scrambled for a Super Potion (Hasn't
he learned from last time?) while Treadshot goes for the kill with
Next up was Gyarados (Okay...What a bizarre trainer), who
amazingly, survives a Discharge...Only to get paralysed & be fully
paralysed. Cyrus again uses a Super Potion (Okay...Let me see...All
I'm facing is a Trainer who uses Super Potions & Doesn't give a
shit about tye match-ups...) while Treadshot KOes with Discharge.
Next was Weavile & I switched out Treadshot for Big O (Well,
Treadshot was wounded, Ungulate can't come out, BlueBomber will
get owned, Metapod was dead, & Faricimo was in the PC, so...). Big
O uses Plasma Gimmick (Protect) to Scout Weavile's move. It was
Ice Punch (He really doesn't care about match ups, doesn't he).
Weavile then got the jump & used Night Slash...While Big O Replied
with Cannon Party, not killing it. Weavile finally started attacking
properly, using Brick Break, putting Big O into KO range with it,
but it was too little too late. Big O Used Cannon Party again,
knocking Weavile out.
Last was Crobat. After usingConfuse Ray & getting Big O to hit
itself, I scramble for a Hyper Potion. After that, something
annoying happens. Flinch, Flinch, Flinch, Flinch Flinch...Three turns
in a row, Big O was Flinch-Haxed by a combination of Bite & Air
Slash. Big O eventually shrugged the flinching off & 2HKOed with
Chrome Buster (The first of which froze the Crobat), winning me
After the ensuing Dialogue, I save my game & Approach Palkia, who
was waiting for me. Let the battle begin! So BlueBomber comes
out...And gets owned in 2 turns The first turn doing lol damage
with Frustration...Ungulate comes out (The capture attempt was at
night), & after dealing piss poor damage, gets destroyed.
Treadshot falls in similar fashion...So its up to Big O to save the
day. He lowers Palkia's health with Chrome Buster & several
Potions & 4 Capture attempts later, finally goes in. I name it
"Aikurap" (Palkia's Japanese name spelt backwards) pick up the
Lustrous Orb, & return to Oreburgh, heal my Pokemon, & return
Faricimo to the party. And that's where we leave off...
