Sapphire Scramble Update #2
Alright, time for Update #2 in this Sapphire Scramble...
The adventure so far in text...
I leave the Pokemon Centre in Rustboro & go to the Cutter's House to get the HM for Cut. After leaving his house, I go back to Route 116 & decide to catch myself a HM Slave. First go, a Nincada & catch it after weakening its health. I name it "Cicada" & teach it Cut. I then deal with the previously unreachable School Kids, where Khan (Torchic) scores a Psychic-Type Solo for dealing with a Ralts. I then go inside the cave there & deal with another pirate, saving a Wingull's life & earning a Great Ball & a Pokenav. After that I go to the cottage that the sailor random told me to visit. I ask the sailor man to take me to Dewford (With manners) & he does (Look what good things manners do...).
I arrive in Dewford & instantly get an Old Rod. I go fishing for a Magikarp, & along the way, Khan scores a solo for Poison via Tentacool. I eventually hook a Magikarp & catch it. I name it "Atheno" (After Athenodoros, the challenge giver (Yes I know it specifies Gyarados, but I can't be bothered waiting till Sootopolis to find one, so a Magikarp will do)) & start bait & switching with it...After I heal at the Pokemon Centre.
After leaving the Pokemon Centre, I find out that "Good Anime" is what's "hip & happening" as I head into Granite Cave. Along the way, Khan scores solos for Ghost via Sableye & Steel via Aron. I also catch an Abra (A scramble Pokemon) in two tries with a Great Ball & name it "Lolcat" (Thanks to DetroitLolcat, and as I don't have any attacking TM's/HM's that it'll learn at the moment, I have to bait & switch for now). I eventually find a grey-haired man & give him a letter in exchange for the TM for Steel Wing.
After that, I leave Granite Cave (After recieving a HM from a Hiker) & tackle the Dewford Gym. During the minor trainer beatings, Khan evolves into a Combusken as it has reached what I assumed, was "half the requirement" (13/15 types & 0/2 fully evolved trained Pokemon). After dealing with the minor trainers, I decide to go back to Rustboro to get some Super Potions (There's no mart in Dewford). I come back to the Gym, & then challenge the Gym Leader: Brawly, for Badge #2.
I send in Atheno while he sends in a Machop. I switch in Khan, who took a Karate Chop. Khan then proceeded to 3HKO with Peck, surviving a Bulk Up & a Karate Chop with 2HP remaining.
Last was Makuhita while I bait & switched with Atheno back into Khan...which was rather risky, considering HP, but Khan switched into a Sand Attack. I then proceeded to heal Khan while Makuhita continued to lower Khan's accuracy. Eventually, Khan 3HKOed with Peck, with one Peck missing, surviving Bulked up Arm Thrust (Which hit twice) & yet another Sand Attack. The battle was won, & I got the TM for Bulk Up.
After that, I healed at the Pokemon Centre & got the sailor man to take me to Slateport...Beach. I cleaned up the trainers there & those inside the hut there before arriving in Slateport & healing at the Pokemon Centre. I then delivered goods to a Captain inside a museum after dealing with a couple of Pirates. And that's where we leave off...
