Welcome to installment #5 of:
Let's Play Pokemon Emerald!
This episode is titled:
As the title suggests, in this episode, we are off to catch a crappy user. I attach my newly obtained Go-Go Goggles and set off to the desert. The first Pokmeon I meet was the one I was looking for. I also knew it must be DTC because it used Sand-Attack 4 times before I caught it, never actually attacking me.
Sorry Trapinch. :c
So I attach my Exp. Share and get to work. After my first few battles, I realized something was wrong. I wondered why Trapinch was dealing so little damage (besides the fact it was DTC) coming off a base 100 attack stat. Then it hit me, Dark-type is special in RSE. AUUUGGGGHHHHH. So I teach him TM28 Dig, and now he starts wrecking shit.
At Level 21, Trapinch had the second-highest attack stat.
Now that we got that figured out, the only problem I have with Trapinch is that blazing base 10 speed. Oh well, I won't complain when he's a Flygon. Anyway, we work our way to the gym in Petalburg City. The gym trainers are absolutely zero trouble for my teammates, and we move on to Norman, the leader.
We are super sexy, except for prem and DTC, of course.
Raseri, this is the moment you've been training for. None of Norman's Pokemon can even touch him until we reach the crazy strong Slaking at the end. My strategy was to Steel Wing on the turns while he was loafing around, so that he couldn't wreck me with counter. This worked really well, except for the fact that Steel Wing is like an 8HKO. Combine that with multiple healing items, and it took absolutely forever to kill Slaking. But eventually, after all the Yawns and such, Raseri took him down for a huge amount of experience.
Over halfway there. 5/8
So this brings my team to Level 26 Wobbanaut, Level 26 prem, Level 27 DTC, Level 28 Raseri, and Level 29 Jellicent.
That's all for now! I apologize for the shortness of this update, but really very little happened besides the growing of DTC. Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions, I love to hear them. If you like what I have so far, please say so! Every luvdisc is appreciated. :) It's also okay to request to have a Pokemon named after you. Please only do this if you can take a joke, I like to tease my teammates. Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed it and stay tuned for the next update!
