Sapphire Scramble Update #5
Alrightio, here's Update #5 of my Sapphire Scramble for you all...
The adventure so far in text...
So, I've just cleared the Lavaridge Gym, & now I can battle my in-game father. Okay. But first, I make my way back to the moving sands. I go there, deal with the trainers there, & pick up the Claw Fossil. I then go to the Trick House to deal with the challenge there, & then make my way to Petalburg Gym. I deal with the minor trainers there, & challenge my in-game father: Norman, to a battle for Gym Badge #5.
I sent out Khan (Combusken) while Norman sent out a Slaking. Khan wastes no time using his new move: Bulk Up to get to +6 Atk. & +6 Def. while all Slaking could do was loaf around, Yawn Khan to sleep on Turn 1, & Facade Khan. I also rotated between using Soda Pops & Super Potions & a Lava Cookie while Bulking up Khan to said Attack & Defence Levels. After that, Khan let it rip with Double Kick, OHKOing King Kong & Picking up the Gym Leader Fully Evolved Pokemon Solo.
Next was a Vigoroth, & after healing Khan with a Super Potion, Khan survived a Slash & a Facade to OHKO wioth Double Kick.
Last was another Slaking, who was quickly OHKOed by Double Kick while preparing a Focus Punch, winning me the battle, the Balance Badge, & the TM for Facade. On top of that, Khan soloed Norman, that's a good thing.
After that, I picked up the HM for Surf, teach it to Atheno (Gyarados) over Splash, heal up, & get ready for the next leg of the journey. I go to the trick house & see that I need a Pokemon that knows Strength, so I go to the Jagged Pass & catch a Machop & name it chopper. My egg also hatches into a Wynaut & I name it Why Not?. I box Why Not? for Chopper & teach him Strength. I then complete the Trick House Challenge before heading South of Slateport to head out onto the sea to deal with the swimmers from Route 105-109 with a heal up at Dewford. After that, I heal & stock up at Petalburg before continuing on with the adventure.
I go back to Mauville & cash in money for coins, enough for the TM for Ice Beam, which I promptly teach to FrostGull (Pelipper). I then deal with the side quest at New Mauville before heading east of Mauville to Route 118, where I swim over to the other side & continue my adventure. I get a Good Rod from a fisherman & deal with Gabby & Ty, saying Abra to their interview. Next up, I go to the Berry Master's House, pick up a bucketload of berries, then go north of Route 118 to Route 119. I see thick grass, & deal with the trainers on the way, before arriving at the Weather Institute, which was raided by pirates. I go in there & deal with the pirates & get a Castform for my troubles, which was unicknameable. After that, I leave the Institute en route for Fortree, when that May girl shows up & challenges me to a battle.
I sent in FrostGull while May sent in a Shroomish. FrostGull gave me momentum right off the bat, quickly OHKOing Shroomish with Ice Beam.
Next was Numel, & I clicked Wing Attack instead of Water Gun, which halved Numel's health, Numel used Focus Energy in return while FrostGull KOed Numel with Water Gun.
Last was Marshtomp, where FrostGull survived 2 Take Down's to 3HKO with Ice Beam, winning me the battle & the HM for Fly.
After that, I beat the rest of the trainers on the Route & arrive in Fortree. So, Badge #6 is around the corner, so is my 5th Scramblemon, & things are as usual, going smoothly for me. And that's where we leave off...
And the team...
Atheno (Male Gyarados) @ Nothing
Comments: He's being a pain in the neck to level up, due to bad type coverage & low Sp. Atk., despite a Modest Nature...
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: Bulk Up can be a big help at times, Dragon & Rival Pokemon Solos coming up...
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...
That concludes Update #5, should get my final 2 Scramblemons next update & Badge #6. Just what will happen? Stay tuned.
@Sprocket: Yay, you got my Fatfetch'd. :) If it helps, I'm 100% sure that the traded Farfetch'd has an Adamant Nature with 30 IV's in Attack, & already holds a Stick. Hope that will help you.
