Sapphire Scramble Update #4
This thread is dying...So I'll make an attempt to revive it with Update #4 of my Sapphire Scramble! (Yay...)
The adventure so far in Text...
So, I had just got the Dynamo Badge, I had the HM for Rock Smash...But I needed a Pokemon that could use the HM, & the Nincada I was using as a temporary HM Slave couldn't learn it, so I had to go & look for a new HM Slave. I eventually found one walking through Route 110 in the form of a Zigzagoon & caught it, naming it "Zigzag". I taught him Rock Smash & Cut & ditched Cicada the Nincada into the PC. After that, I went to Rusturf Tunnel & smashed both boulders there, helping the lovey-doeys that were separated to reunite. I got the HM for Strength for spoils.
After that, I headed back to Mauville & went up Route 111. After breaking the Rock there, I encountered two people that many a trainer knows: The TV Couple Gabby & Ty. After making a blitzkrieg of them with Khan (Combusken) & Atheno (Gyarados), i answered their interview & because I was so lazy, I answered "Abra" to their question. I then continued on, when I couldn't progess further due to "moving sand", so I diverged left to Route 112.
I beat the trainers there & see a couple of Pirates blocking access to a cable car. I ignore them & enter the Fiery Path, coming out the other side. I beat the trainers there & reach the other side of Route 111, where I see some random mucking around with a tree. I bypass him & continue on to Route 113 after healing at an old granny's house. I find some ash & find a random who gives me a Soot Sack for nothing, & then continue along the Route, eventually arriving at Fallarbor Town.
I arrive there, heal at the Pokemon Centre & continue along Route 114, where FrostGull (Wingull) evolves into a Pelipper! I then arrived at a cave called "Meteor Falls" & find a couple of Pirates, who then get ambushed by some hotheads, whom their leader came along & introduced himself to me. After the skirmish, I come out the other side of the falls, go down Route 115, & arrive back at Rustboro, where I heal at the Pokemon Centre & prepare for the next part of the journey.
I head back through Rusturf Tunnel, & arrive in Mauville, where I head south & complete the Trick House Challenge. After that, I head back to Mauville, heal up, & go back to the place where the cable car is, only to see that the pirates are gone! I enter the car & find myself at the top of Mt. Chimney & find hotheads & pirates battling each other with Poochyena's. I gatecrash the party, & storm my way to the pirate leader, beating the minor pirates on the way, & challenging him to a battle.
I sent in Atheno while Archie, as he calls himself, send in a Mightyena. After flinch-haxing the hyena for a turn with Bite, Atheno bites again as Mightyena resorted to sand-chucking. At this point, Atheno resorted to unleashing his Draconic Rage, dealing 40HP of damage to the Mightyena, putting him in critical health, as he bit back at Atheno. At this point, Archie resorted to an evil crime syndicate leader's favourite item: A Super Potion. The heal up was for free as Atheno missed with Dragon Rage. But not to worry, Atheno killed the Mightyena in 2 turns, after being chucked more sand.
Next in was a Golbat, who survived a Bite to confuse Atheno with Supersonic. It became annoying as Atheno's only command was to kill itself & that's what he did: kill himself in confusion... :(
So I sent in Lolcat (Kadabra), who quickly KOed Golbat with one Psybeam.
Last in was a Sharpedo, & Lolcat came out fighting, sending one Shock Wave Sharpedo's way...Only to almost KO with it...Sharpedo OHKOed in return with Crunch.
So I sent in FrostGull. Archie then uses a Super Potion on Sharpedo, but it wasn't enough, as FrostGull KOed the Shark with Wing Attack, winning me the battle.
After that, I went through a cutscene, then went down the now avaliable Jagged Pass, to arrive in Lavaridge Town. I healed my Pokemon at the Pokemon Centre there, & picked up an egg from an old geezer, before going inside the Lavaridge Gym, where I beat the trainers there before challenging Flannery for Gym Badge #4.
I sent in Khan while Flannery sends in a Slugma. Khan shrugs off a piss weak Smog to 2HKO with Double Kick.
Next was another Slugma (Hey, Species Clause!!!) who survived a Double Kick to set up Light Screen. Flannery then heals Slugma with a Hyper Potion as Khan pecks it. Another Double Kick came in Slugma's direction as she set up Sunny Day...Uh oh. Flannery then heals up her Slugma with another Hyper Potion. It wasn't enough as Khan 2HKOes with Double Kick.
Last was Torkoal, who easily shrugs off another Double Kick to use her feminine charms on Khan, attracting him to her. While Khan stood there dreaming about a Female Torkoal's...err...whatever extra bits a Female Torkoal has, Torkoal went ahead to 2HKO with Body Slam, the first of which paralysed Khan.
So I sent in Atheno for Payback. Atheno survives a Body Slam to KO Torkoal with 2 Dragon Rages, winning me the battle, the Heat Badge, & the TM for Overheat.
After leaving the Gym, that May chick finds me again & gives me a Go-Goggles, which apparently allows me to see through moving sand. After the meeting, I proceed to heal in the Pokemon Centre & get ready for the next leg. So, now I can see through moving sand, I have four Badges, I can now battle my in-game father, & that means an opportunity to get the G.L.F.E.P. Solo for Khan. Now I'm in the mid-game part of this adventure, things are going smoothly, and...yeah. And that's where we leave off...
And the Current Team...
Khan (Male Combusken) @ Nothing
Types (*Not Soloed, Underlines are omitted): Dark, Normal, Bug, Water, Flying, Grass, Fighting, Ground, Rock, Psychic, Poison, Ghost, Steel, Electric, Dragon*, Gym Leader*, Rival*, Champion*, Fire
Comments: Doing quite well at the moment...
Atheno (Male Gyarados) @ Nothing
Comments: Extremely powerful, with Bite as a special attack (I think Dark is classified as Special in Gen 3), looking forward to getting the required moveset...
Lolcat (Male Kadabra) @ Nothing
Comments: Doing well since evolution. Cannot evolve any further, but for now, Lolcat is doing very well for me.
FrostGull (Male Pelipper) @ Nothing
Comments: Doing much better since evolution, but time will tell whether his usefulness will remain...
So, Four Gym Badges, Still a while until I get the other two Scramble-mons, things are going oh so smoothly at the moment, but will the Scramble Party continue to build the momentum? Stay tuned...
