Gym Leader Winona.. is my next battle.
Before going to this gym, I've been busy leveling up my team.. preparing them for what's ahead.
New Mauville was pretty simple, got a TM-Thunderbolt to boot! Google the Trapinch was going well with Sand Tomb and Faint Attack.. doing some real damage while leveling up to 30 in a short time. Mind you.. I caught Google at level 20. Hard stuff.
Afterwards we headed East, Route 118 then Route 119. Battling Wild Pokemon all around..
My beautiful teammates finally evolved. My squad is looking fucking good.. and I'm pleased as hell.
My squad is all around lvl 36-38, and I do feel like we're strong enough.
With Steel the Magneton on my squad.. against all Flying-types? LOL. Yes please.
1st trainer, wiped out.
Double battle, quick and easy.
3rd battle before Winona, another Magneton win.
Winona time.. I feel extremely confident. I have Magneton and Wheez as the defensive powerhouses. Then Kippin the Swampert that has had my back through it all.
Magneton vs Swablu.. easy enough.. 'Spark'
Magneton vs Altaria.. so.. more of the same.. sounds good.
Hey guys.. did you all know Altaria knows Earthquake?
Yeah.. I didn't.
Magneton.. RIP. Are you fucking kidding me.. I will never catch a break.
Well it's not over. Altaria vs Kippin it goes..
Surf vs Dragonbreath.. Kippin gets paralyzed.. and Surf doesn't do hardly anything.. I push Surf a few more times.. and get Altaria about halfway.. then they switch it out for Tropius.
I switch to Wheez.. handle Tropius.
The rest of the battle is a fucking blur.. but I do know that Google died as well.. probably because I'm just an idiot..
as you can see from the picture below.. even Kippin almost headed to the graveyard.
I'm playing like a dumbass.. I've lost very valuable Pokemon along the journey because of my stupidity and poor luck..
Will this journey continue on? Or will I retire my journey.. and concede defeat.. and possibly.. one day.. go out and try again.
Who knows.. but I also know this world is a lot to handle.
