Bumping this thread for the second installment of:
Let's Play Pokemon Emerald!
So this is my team, prem getting ready to do some werk.
After crushing Roxanne in my first gym battle, it was time to keep moving. As I walk away from the site of the bloody victory, I see a Team Aqua grunt sprinting away at top speed, followed by a nerd also running at top speed. It's no wonder the grunt got away...but I proceed to follow them north when I am stopped by captain nerd, telling me that they stole his goods. This is a perfect time for prem to show what he's got! Into the tall grass we go, as prem wrecks little baby Wurmples and Nincadas. The trainers are no trouble either, thanks to Headbutt flinch hax.
prem slaving away.
Here we go, into the cave to save poor little Peeko. The grunt is no trouble for prem thanks to crits. He's a lucky boy, but oh well. His ability, Pickup, is quite charming in-game. So far he's given me a Great Ball, Antidote, Super Potion, Hyper Potion, and others. All before the second gym. Not bad premmy. As we're leaving town, we meet May, who makes fun of my inability to catch lots of Pokemon. So me and prem smash her into the ground and proceed on our way. What a great team.
This is why we don't let birds loose in our house.
We take a ride on this old man's crappy little boat, although it moves surprisingly fast for it's stature. It also manages to stop on a dime immediately when my father calls. That is some kind of wicked captainship.
So here we are in Dewford town, ready to deliver Steven's letter. It's a dark cave, so apparently we can flash all we like. I'm not a fan of that idea, but whatever. After prem Headbutt haxes through a few Geodudes, we meet up with the Steel-type master. He thanks us for our trouble and gives us a TM that no one can even use. It will come in handy later, though. I'm sure of it. Also around this time, Jellicent has evolved into a healthy Marshtomp and obtains Mud Shot, his best move at this point.
Another team picture before the gym!
Sadly, as I'm about to find out, 95 accuracy just won't do it in-game. I lose the next 4 battles on misses and critical hits. One notable one was a miss on Meditite using Focus Punch, which then critical hit me for the KO. But I perservered, and eventually I won, leaving me with a Level 20 Marshtomp and a still Level 16 Zigzagoon.
We are awarded with Bulk Up and the ability to use Flash, although I never do see much use for that move. I walk outside and obtain my Old Rod from the fisherman, maybe I will get a Magikarp sooner or later. :D
So that's all for this installment of Let's Play Pokemon Emerald! Sorry it was even shorter than the last one, but I'm trying to update every gym, and these two were rather close together. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated, thanks for reading!
