Fire Red Post 3
I head into the Forest with a level 11 Charmander and a level 9 Metapod. In order to give myself a fighting chance.. Charmander MUST get to level 13 to learn Metal Claw, and ultimately get to around lvl 14/15 to compete with Onix.
Almost as soon as I start traveling through the woods, Wormy evolves into it's final form.
Gets Confusion, and starts wrecking havoc.
I level up my team just a bit more, Zippo is level 14, and I know it's not ideal.. but I truly believe I can beat these guys as long as I am confident and straight-forward in my attacks. Wormy can hit them on the special side of things.. but being 4x weak to their type and moves.. no way can I risk this. This is going to be Zippo's match.. it's him or all hope is lost.
I will not be a coward and over-level my team just to get through the game.. it's time.
Geodude vs Zippo
Zippo comes out swinging.. and possibly the best moment in the match happened in the first attack. Metal Claw, atk rises. [FUCK YESSSSSSSSSS]
Geodude fortunately doesn't have any super-effective attacks at level 12, but if he did.. he didn't use them. Just a tackle. 2 Metal Claws and he's down.
Now for the main match..
Lvl 14 Onix vs Lvl 15 Charmander
Rock Tomb vs Metal Claw
All the odds vs none
Do you all want to know the MVP of this match? Rock Tombs 80% accuracy.
Onix didn't even touch me.. what incredible, hilarious, unbelievable luck. I do believe I would have survived at least one hit.. but honestly.. Onix missed 4 RTombs in a row.. and I just kept slashing away.
You just can't make up this kind of luck. Wild stuff.
It was one of the most incredible things in a battle, and it was the single most stressful battle I've ever been a part of. I had no other options.. I had NONE. It was just Zippo and I. Our bond is definitely growing strong. We know what we need to do to change the world for the better. If we fail.. all is lost. I think I saw it in Zippo's eye.. he knows how important this journey is, even if he has no clue what is going on in "another world" and another time.
This is me bending Brock over, after the match. It was a good double-climax after the rocking I gave him.
Zippo is still pretty stubborn.. which is why he forced his way to not evolve. I don't know what he's up to..
Time to continue on.. East.
New teammates are on the horizon.
