Sapphire Payback Scramble
Meh...Starting my Sapphire Payback Scramble.
The Pokemon are...
Swablu should be MVP, & Shuppet should be LVP, unless my Cheri Berry Supply runs dry. Good luck me, I'll have fun...
1.) Just Started, & it's going to be a looooooong Mudkip as I got a Calm-Natured one...Damnit. That means Mudkip has to solo 5 G.L.M.P. excluding Roxanne to evolve into Marshtomp. Something tells me this is going to be a long hard scramble. I name the Mudkip " Mudkipz, & get ready to take on that May bitch. In Littleroot at the moment with a Level 5 Mudkip.
2.) Beat a whole bunch of trainers, saw Wally catch his lucky Ralts & got to Rustboro with little problems. Cheri Berry Zubat has 9 lives due to the person at the Flower Shop giving me a Cheri Berry. Beat Roxanne easily & went to Dewford where I caught a Cheri Berry Zubat named Flapper in Granite Cave. In Dewford at the moment with a Lv11 Zubat & a Lv18 Mudkip.
3.) Started in Dewford & grinded up Flapper, through trainers on Route 116 & Route 109. Caught a HM Slave in the form of a Zigzagoon & went into Dewford Gym. In the most bshax battle I've ever been in, Machop took forever to go down with Flapper & it used up all my potions. Then came Makuhita. Mudkipz reduced its accuracy to -6, but then got killed by Arm Thrust, so Flapper came to the rescue & haxxed Makuhita to death, winning me the Badge. In Slateport at the moment with a Lv16 Zubat & a Lv19 Mudkip.
4.) Started in Slateport & streeted through the Oceanic Museum. Then went up Route 110 & beat my Rival, Flapper beating Grovyle & Mudkipz taking care of the rest, then got to Mauville, evolved Zubat, & took on a lot of trainers. And after a couple of hours worth of grinding & several failed attempts, I finally beat Wattson. Mudkipz took care of Magnemite, Flapper soloed Voltorb, & Mudkipz soloed Magneton. In Mauville at the moment with a Golbat & a Mudkip at Lv30.
5.) Started in Mauville, & got Rock Smash, to save the lovebirds in Rusturf Tunnel & claim another HM. I then went up through Route 111 to eventually arrive in Fallabor Town. I then went through Route 114 & caught Cotton the Swablu: Scramblemon #3. After the skirmish in Meteor Falls, I eventually make my way up to Mt. Chimney, beating the Pirates before fighting Archie. Basically, this was Flapper territory, decisively handling Golbat & Mightyena, while both Cotton & Mudkipz tried to take down Sharpedo, but failed. Enter Flapper & he took care of Sharpedo. After that, I went down Jagged Pass to Lavaridge Town & took on the Gym. Eventually I got to Flannery & soloed her with Mudkipz. The two Slugma were annoying spamming Light Screen & Sunny Day, while Mudkipz, despite being attracted to Torkoal & paralysed, eventually pulled through to beat Torkoal & win the badge. In Lavaridge Town at the moment with Cotton at Lv21, while Mudkipz & Flapper are at Lv34.
6.) Started in Lavaridge Town & made my way to the desert, beating the trainers there. I then did the Trick House Challenge & went to Petalburg to take on the Gym. After a few battles with minor trainers, something amazing happens! Flapper becomes a Crobat! After the minor Trainers are out of the way, I battled Norman, my in-game father, for Badge #5.
I lead with Cotton against Slaking #1, who OHKOes Cotton, before Flapper came in & haxxed it to death. Vigoroth also found Flapper to strong, also falling to hax, & lastly, Mudkipz came in for Slaking #2 for the GLMP solo. It was disappointingly easy; all Slaking did was spam an easy preventable Focus Punch, as Mudkipz easily reduced his accuracy to -6 before spamming Water Gun until he fell.
After that, I healed up & to cap off the update, I got the Surf HM & gave it to Mudkipz. In Petalburg City at the moment with Cotton at Lv23, Mudkipz at Lv35, & Flapper at Lv36.
7.) From Petalburg, I go to Route 118, taking the Trick House challenge along the way, & got the Good Rod. I returned to Petalburg & fished for my Corphish, which I caught at Lv14 & named it "Craffian". Considering his level, I add Surf over Bubble & Double Team over Vice Grip & went to the Route 111 Desert to grind both it & Cotton to Lv25.
After the grind, I went up Route 118 & 119 to the Weather Institute, where I beat some Grunts & gain a Castform from the Weather Institute people, naming it "Rain" once I made a trip to the Name Rater in Slateport, making it obvious that I'm going down the Rain Route. Along the way, I cashed in money for coins to teach Mudkipz Ice Beam. After the Institute, I beat my Rival & arrive in Fortree City, where the entrance to the Gym was blocked. I go to Route 120 after this & find out it was a Kecleon, as Steven told me. I caught the compulsory Kecleon, naming it "Invisible!" & boxed it immediately.
Instead of going inside the Fortree Gym first, I decide to make a detour to Route 121 & caught my final Scramblemon: "Puppet" the Shuppet, avoiding the trainers along the way & back to Fortree, where I heal up & go inside the Gym. I beat the minor trainer & challenge Winona the Gym Leader to a battle for my 6th badge.
Leading with Puppet against Swellow, Puppet got off to a good start, cursing Swellow, but then being killed by Aerial Ace. So Flapper revenged him & also killed Pelipper. Craffian fared very well against Skarmory, but eventually fell, as Flapper came along & beat Skarmory after a big struggle. Finally, Mudkipz survived an Earthquake from Altaria to 2HKO with Ice Beam & win me the battle, & get Mudkipz his 4th G.L.M.P. Solo.
After that, I healed up & taught Cotton & Flapper Fly over Peck & Leech Life respectively. In Fortree City at the moment with Rain at Lv27, Cotton, Craffian, & Puppet at Lv28, Mudkipz at Lv37, & Flapper at lv39.
8.) Starting from Fortree, I make my way down Route 120, & win one of my toughest battles to date: Against that Cool Trainer with a Milotic. The bitch was responsible for killing & haxxing 5 of my Pokemon, until Flapper came along & shut the lights out on that bitch. During the run through the routes, Craffian evolves! After that, I go to Lilycove & take on my Rival: May, for the final time. In short, she got beaten hopelessly. After that, I went up to Mt. Pyre.
At the top, I go through some boring rambling & then go to Slateport, where some Submarine was stolen & I had to go & raid the Pirates Hideout. But first, I went through the water routes between Slateport & Route 104 to gain experience. After doing that, I go to the Pirates Hideout & raid the place. Eventually I beat them all & they run away like cowards. In the final battle against the Admin, Cotton managed to evolve!
After leaving the Hideout, I go & heal at the Lilycove Pokemon Centre. In Lilycove City at the moment with Puppet at Lv33, Rain & Craffian at Lv34, Cotton at Lv35, Mudkipz at Lv38, & Flapper at Lv41.
9.) Short update this time around. From Lilycove, I surf my way to Mossdeep after a little bit of Mudkip grinding & a visit to the Shoal Cave. I then go inside the Mossdeep Gym & beat the minor trainers, before fighting Liza & Tate, which I try to solo with a Mudkip.
This wasn't exactly the best of ideas, however, as they kept on OHKOing Mudkip. It wasn't Solrock that was the problem, it was that friggin Lunatone & the fact that it will OHKO after a Psychic. Boo...This caused a trillion Soft Resets until I found a formula that worked. With Mudkipz, I also had Rain alongside for Rain Support & for healing purposes. It worked, after ~10 attempts, one being an almost, only for an unboosted Lunatone to score a critical hit...But on the attempt it worked, the hax-man turned on Lunatone & I got the critical hit I badly needed to successfully solo Liza & Tate with a Mudkip & get the last GLMP solo required for evolution.
After that, I don't evolve Mudkip...Yet, but I will do so next update. In Mossdeep City at the moment with Puppet & Rain at Lv35,Craffian & Cotton at Lv36, Mudkipz at Lv40, & Flapper at Lv41.
Puppet (Male Shuppet) @ Lax Incense
G.L.P. Solos through Curse Damage: 0/5
Comments: This Pokemon is basically Troll Haunter all over again, except with crappier defences, crappier speed & no sleep move. I really need a better move than Night Shade soon...Current LVP
Rain (Male Castform) @ Nothing
Comments: Rain the Castform, now with respectable moves! I have bumped up the PP of Rain twice to increase his longevity, but other than that, he's doing rather Okay at the moment. :)
Craffian (Female Crawdaunt) @ Smoke Ball
Comments: Ahhh, Craffian, the Mono-Attacking Crawdaunt. Since her evolution, things seem to have (Fortunately) changed for the better. With really great offences & some great support moves, this Pokemon, as it stands, is a worthy Mono-Attacker.
Cotton (Male Altaria) @ Nothing
Comments: Cotton, Now an Altaria, hasn't been used much, but he's proving himself to be quite a force. Watch out Drake, Altaria's coming!
Mudkipz (Male Mudkip) @ Quick Claw
G.L.M.P. Solos: 5/5
Comments: Still a Mudkip, but finally, he's got all his solos, & soon enough, he'll go from Mudkipz to Swampertz, after a trillion SR's due to a goddamn Lunatone. Other than that, it's evolution time...
Flapper (Male Crobat) @ Cheri Berry
Comments: Cheri Berry Crobat? More like Cheri Berry Probat! He was the only member that could handle that Cool Trainer's Milotic, & basically, owns the opposition. Who said Cheri Berry Pokemon were useless? Current MVP.
