Final update for a while guys, i'll be outta town for a few days.
So before challenging Lenora, I took my trio of destruction and scaled Challenge Rock, defeating every trainer along the way, no problem (the Nurse helped a lot though, since the entirety of my team is fast but frail pokes). It didn't take long for Narcissism to evolve into proud Servine, one step closer to being a regal Serperior. Oh, and Shadowfax learned Flame Charge too.
Leaf Tornado is an amazing move btw. Good damage+semi-constant accuracy drops=fun.
After getting everyone to level 19, I took on the gym and the gym keader Lenora. Herdier wasn't too much of a problem, but Watchog surprisingly was, destroying the rest of my team with Retaliate and Hypnosis. Before fainting though, Servine grew to lvl 20 and learned Leech Seed; I immediately challenged Lenora again and won pretty much due to this move alone.
You guys all know what happens next - Team Plasma breaks in and steals the Dragonite skull, mistaking it for Reshiram (lol), and after hunting them down in Pinwheel Forest, my trio of the elements manages to easily retake the stolen item.
On my way out of Pinwheel Forest, I ponder my next challenge.

The options I have are as follows:
-Tympole: Interesting, but I already have a Water type
-Pansage: Servine outclasses it in every way.
-Panpour: I already have one
-Petilil: Interesting, but it requires a Leaf Stone to evolve, and it's weak to bug so... no.
-Sewaddle: Besides being weak to bug, it's weak in general.
-Venipede: An interesting poke, it just so happens that it resists bug. I think I'll give it a try.
So Phobia the Venipede is my newest team member. He still has a lot of levelling to do, but I'm sure it can be accomplished! (I just realized that had I caught him 1 level lower he might still have had Rollout+Defense Curl... fml)
Narcissism (Servine) - Level 22
Chimpaqu (Panpour) - Level 21
Shadowfax (Blitzle) - Level 20
Phobia (Venipede) - Level 15
