Fire Red Post 8
I look to boost up my levels a bit before heading into SS Anne by facing all the trainers East of Vermilion[?]. I get the VS Seeker as well.. so shortly after beating them and leveling my boys up.. I start to challenge them again.
Nub is a real beast. Best wild Pokemon in the game? At least top 10. Phenomenal power and speed. Levels up really fast too. Got Nub at level 22, evolves at level 26..
In a matter of moments..
BAM Baby! Nub is looking like a powerhouse now. Definitely a staple on my team. I know she's fragile.. so I need to treat her as such.
Oh, I forgot. I went East by the wild Pokemon and I ran into a Spearow. Since my last one died, I'm allowed to re-catch if I want to. I do and realize something..
Thank you.. thank you.. and now the best part.
Adamant Nature.. Word up. + Stick.
I'm feeling good, my team is looking good, now just time to level up a bit more. I do decide though that Ch'ding isn't the best choice as a teammate right now, so I box him. But the fact that he's available is neat.
I VS Seeker a few trainers north of the town.. you know.. the Raticate owner and the Pidgey/Pidgeotto trainer. Well.. dead has found me. It sucks.
The Pidgeotto owner now has 3 of them.. instead of just a few Pidgey. And I kind of screwed myself by having 'Rollout' active which means I can't switch out.
Well.. Kensey takes a few hits, but I finish the first one off with Pound. I'm about 3/4 HP, and I decide to go with Rollout to get a good roll going for the sweep.. The next Pidgeotto comes out.. Quick Attack.. really hits hard.. and my Rollout does the 1st stage 'meh' damage. Next Quick Attack.. CRIT.
I really like Jigglypuff.. I was growing to love it. It was a real bummer.. and one of those moments where you're like.. do I REALLY HAVE TO BOX ITTTTTTTTTTT.. but yeah.
I'm currently saved in the Diglett Cave, just killing them because they give off good EVs and decent XP for now.. a few more levels and I'll be ready to go.
Oddiu/Gloom is just.. not really a Pokemon I want to use down the line. A really slow Pokemon to attack with.. and just not what I am looking for. But it will stay in the team since it can definitely be a pest.
until next time
