Yeah, like Brock.. I'll need to find a way to get past this gym without losing anyone. The first two gyms are the biggest tasks for me, for obvious reasons. And yeah, thanks for the fossil info]
Fire Red Post 5
After taking a rest at the Pokemon Center I am aware of my limited team. With Gary, the Nugget Bridge, and Misty all in one for a huge test.. I go to Route 4, West of the city to see what reveals itself.
Fear the Rattata. I'm not a big fan of Rattata at all.. in fact, I hate the fuck. But it's what showed up, and I am glad to add it to my squad. Welcome.
I've begun to train it and craft it into a killing machine, and slowly but surely it learns the dangerous move, Hyper Fang. I decide to let it sit at level 13 while I go straight to Gary for the intense battle.
Before I do though.. I feel a nudge on my side. Zippo's Pokeball is shaking.
This has never happened before and I wonder what's going on. I let him out and to my surprise he starts to glow..
HOLY SHIT YESSSSSSSSSS!!
Zippo you sexy beast.
It seems as though Zippo sensed the fact that major battles were up ahead and felt determined to prove that we're more than just "okay", we're resilient and determined for greatness. Him and I are truly growing a great partnership together.
My team feels ready for the task at hand.
We have my lvl 19 Jigglypuff, lvl 20 Wormy, and lvl 20 Charmeleon. With lvl 13 Rattata sitting at the back, safely.
The battle starts with Zippo vs Pidgeotto.
I lay down a Mega Punch and it does 50%, while I took a QAttack first. Afraid of missing with MP's 85% acc, I use Ember. Gary plays smart and quickly switches to Squirtle who takes the hit like a champ.
I don't feel confident right now, but know there is one Pokemon who will either be death fodder, or be bulky enough to take on the high leveled Squirtle.
I switch in Jigglypuff, and absorb a Water Gun.
[Actual Jigglypuff using Rollout]
With my newly acquired 'Rollout', I know it is my best option, and truly only option if I want to bring Squirtle down. Squirtle continues to switch between Water Gun and Withdraw, getting a crit WG in the process, while Kensey is gaining momentum with Rollout. When the 4th Rollout comes.. it's a very powerful hit.. and with 4HP left of Kensey's life.. it KO's Squirtle..
THANK THE LORD.
From then on, it's the Zippo show. I finish off Pidgeotto, take out the weak Rattata, then finish off the teleporting Abra.
It was quite a battle, and I'm pleased there were no casualties.. when in fact, there could have been a few.
I take his bitch money and save the file. I now plan on going through the Nugget Bridge and level Fear up a bit for more coverage vs Misty.. then testing my luck in the wild grass.
Until next time.
