Alright, here's another annoying update from me...This will be the penultimate update for this particular Scramble...

- 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)

*: 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 in text...
So, I enter Victory Road, with a team of Ungulate (Mismagius), Metapod (Mothim), Faricimo (Kricketune), Treadshot (Pachirisu), Big O (Empoleon) & Slave ((Bibarel) Who as its name suggests, is a HM Slave), with Ungulate in the lead position (Dark Cave). I bring about 15 Hyper Potions & 20 Revives in stock alongside other things found along the way & plan to get through the road without retreating to the Pokemon Centre.
In the beginning, the road is tough, Ungulate uses up a portion of potions early & the stay in the road is significally lengthened by endless Wild Pokemon Battles (Ungulate's level meant repels wouldn't work). There was also a heap of trainer battles. The first one was a Psychic, who spammed Gengar & Alakazam & used up a couple of Potions & a Revive. Next was a Bird Keeper with a Noctowl & a Fuckraptor & used up a few more potions. I then used up another potion for the Ace Trainer at the end of the first part of the road, beating a Golduck & a fat pink bitch.
Now the second part & a few boulder & bike puzzles to deal with. First trainer here gave me a little bit of trouble with Rapidash, but Big O & Metapod together cleaned up Carnivine & Rampy. Then came an annoying trainer with a Clefable, who eventually fell to Ungulate, Metapod attempted to deal with Torterra, U-Turning to Faricimo, who lulled the tortoise to sleep before killing it with X-Scissor. Next in the firing line was an Expert with another Fuckraptor, who got bullshitted by Treadshot, then Big O dealt with Hippowdon. I then dealt with the other boulder & bike puzzle on the floor to get the TM for Stone Edge. Along the way, I was foced to deal with a Double Team with yet another annoying Fuckraptor & a Whiscash. Several Potions & a revive later, & I was ready to deal with the next part of the road.
The third part was very easy the only trainer was a Blackbelt with Machamp, who couldn't do anything but lower Ungulate's Speed with Scary Face while Ungulate easily 3HKOed with Shadow Ball. After that, I headed down the stairs to the next part of the road.
This part had water in it & four trainers in it. The first one was a Psychic with the Chimecho evo line. That trainer fell quickly. The next one was a Double Team with a Gyarados & a Medicham. Ungulate OHKOed Medicham while Metapod U-Turned to Treadshot, who shrugged off a Gyarados attack. Treadshot & Ungulate then combined to KO Gyarados with Spark & Shadow Ball respectively. The third trainer was another Ace Trainerwith a Honchkrow, who got rubbished by Treadshot's Discharge. The last Trainer was a Dragon Tamer with a Gabite, who KOed Ungulate before being rubbished by Big O. After that, I revived Ungulate (again), replenished her PP with an Elixir, & headed up the stairs to the final area.
The last area wasn't much in the way of trainers, only two of them lurked the area. The first trainer was a Veteran. His Tentacruel took a while to go down, then Golem came in & OHKOed Ungulate with Stone Edge. Big O came in & picked off Golem, before an Empoleon vs. Empoleon battle brewed. The battle was anti-climatic, with the Veteran's Empoleon falling after 2 lots of Cannon Party (Hydro Pump) & 2 Sudden Impacts (Drill Peck). After reviving Ungulate again, I headed up, got the items & faced the final Trainer in the road: another Dragon Tamer. His first Gible fell quickly to Ungulate, Big O dealt with the second Gible with Chrome Buster (Ice Beam), & Treadshot dealt with Gyarados with Discharge. After that, I found the exit & left. I conquered Victory Road!
I then head up the waterfall & arrive at the Pokemon League HQ. I heal up my Pokemon, bring BlueBomber (Drifblim) back into the fray at the expense of Slave, & replenish my Hyper Potion & Revive stock. I look around the place, & just as I approached a man who was blocking the entrance to the E4, here comes Someone, wanting to battle me...
I send in BlueBomber while Someone sends in a Fuckraptor. Fuckraptor begins with a Steel Wing while BlueBomber does lol damage with Frustration. The annoying little cunt-bird then U-Turns to Floatzel while BlueBomber raised herself to greater heights, flying up high. BlueBomber dodges an AquaJet before Critting with Fly, which Floatzel survives with less than half health. Floatzel then got his revenge, KOing BlueBomber & taking Aftermath Damage, putting it in KO range.
I send in Treadshot to revenge kill Floatzel, & she does exactly that, shrugging off an Ice Fang to KO Floatzel.
Someone then sends in Torterra while I send in Faricimo, who was ready for Round whatever it was. This time, Torterra got the upper hand, dodging a Sing to KO with a combination of Leaf Storm & Earthquake.
I send in Metapod, who instantly U-Turns into Big O, allowing him to shrug off a Crunch. Big O then KOes with Chrome Buster.
Next in Someone's arsenal was a Heracross. Big O shrugs off an Aerial Ace to OHKO with a Sudden Impact.
Treadshot comes back in to deal with Fuckraptor, who comes back for another round, but then chickens out, U-Turning to a Snorlax, who Tradshot hit with Discharge, critting & paralysing the fat man. I switch out Treadshot for Metapod, who got paralysed by a Body Slam. Using Metapod as death fodder, I use a Hyper Potion on Treadshot, while Snorlax KOes with Crunch.
I send Big O back in to deal with Snorlax & use Plasma Gimmick (Protect) to scout Snorlax's next move, however I don't see a move as Snorlax spends a turn fully paralysed...So Big O uses Cannon Party to deal hefty damage to Snorlax, while Snorlax Earthquakes in reply. Big O then makes a Sudden Impact, putting Snorlax in KO range, while Snorlax Crunches (Okay...). That blunderish move allowed Big O to move in for the kill, KOing Snorlax with a Sudden Impact.
So Treadshot comes back out to hopefully, get rid of Fuckraptor once & for all. Fuckraptor decides to Steel Wing Treadshot while Treadshot Discharges, which the cunt bird survives. Fuckraptor then gets in a Close Combat, which Treadshot survives to finally KO the annoying bird.
Last in Someone's arsenal was a Rapidash, who instantly springs up to dodge a Discharge. I then use a Hyper Potion on Treadshot while Rapidash paralyses with Bounce. Rapidash then gets in a Fire Blast while Treadshot paralyses Rapidash with Discharge. Rapidash then used Sunny Day while Treadshot Discharged again, before seeing Rapidash KO Treadshot with Fire Blast.
I send in a weakened Big O (Because Ungulate can't come out) to try & deal with Rapidash. Not wanting to risk a Cannon Party missing, I command Big O to make a Sudden Impact, which KOes Rapidash & win me the battle.
After that, I heal at the Pokemon Centre & decide to start grinding to prepare myself for the E4. It will be a long, boring process, but it will hopefully pay off. I aim to get all 6 members to Lv60 before fighting the E4. And that's where we leave off...
