Also, should you fail to get Numel, Trapinch has access to strong Ground and Fire moves to RAEP the E4 with. Good luck.
That's true; I hadn't really looked into moves I'll be getting soon yet. Good idea on Secret Power Gyarados. The Building effect applies Paralysis, which will be nice against Flannery as well if I don't want to risk sending Queen Zeal in. Thanks for the Trapinch suggestion too; I'll look into that should I fail to find a Numel. :)
EDIT: Just realized: Norman's Slaking will be an absolute joke. Dustox has Protect for his attacking turns. Easy win, as long as I can kill him in ten attacking turns. I have some X Specials I can apply in the Truant turns though. Should be good. :)
EDIT2: Hell yes level 14 female Numel caught on Route 112! :) Her name is Poshul.
