Hey, nice to see the thread is picking up a bit of steam. Anyway, I have here the final part of Rogue's saga in the Johto region. How will he fare against the might of Lance's Dragonite(s)? Read on, brave souls...read on.
VS Champion Lance Pt. 2
"Umm..." I stammered. The moment I had waited for had finally arrived. The moment I had so vigorously prepared for was here. Lance had sent out his Dragonite, and frankly, I was a bit unsure I could do it. But I had a trick up my sleeve, and I hope would work.
"Go, Clappy!" Dewgong appeared before me, ready as ever for battle.
"Ah, a Dewgong. An Ice-type...how I despise those," Lance said bitterly. "But enough talk! Let us get on with the battle! Dragonite, use--"
"CLAPPY, ICE BEAM!"
Clappy rushed forward with a speed the likes of which I hadn't seen before and blasted Dragonite with a beam of frozen energy.
Now that answered one of my questions...Dewgong would be able to outspeed a Dragonite when equipped with a Choice Scarf. Now the only question remaining was if it would be able to one-shot the Dragonite, and if not, would it be able to survive the return blow? Only time would tell.
To my delight (And, honestly, surprise) Dragonite was frozen solid. It managed to muster up the energy to break out of the ice, but the energy it expended doing so caused it to collapse, fainted.
"YES!" I exclaimed. "Awesome, Clappy! Let's hope you can pull it off again!"
Clappy's look of joy suddenly deflated.
"Aww, don't be that way," I said. "I mean it in a good way...not that you got lucky or anything."
"Enough!" Lance commanded. "If you're quite finished, let us continue. Go, Aerodactyl!"
While a Scarf'd Dewgong could outpace a Dragonite, I was quite certain it would fall short of beating an Aerodactyl to the chase.
"Come back, Clappy! You've done awesome," I said. "Now, get back out there, Landslide!"
The giant boulder roared defiantly at the ancient pterodactyl. Aerodactyl responded in kind.
"Aerodactyl, use Crunch!" Lance ordered.
"Use Stone Edge, Landslide!"
Sure enough, Aerodactyl hit Landslide with blinding speed. Landslide shrugged off the blow (Golem be bawsin') and launched a series of razor-sharp rocks at the dinosaurian creature. Aerodactyl was battered by the sudden barrage of stones, and fell to the ground in a heap.
"Nice job, Landslide. Now, finish this up for us, Clappy!"
"Not so fast. Go, Dragonite," Lance said as he tossed his fifth Poke Ball into the air.
"Just like last time, Clappy. Ice Beam."
I sat down, confident that the move would KO. But it was not so. I stared in shock as Dragonite lived with a sliver of health.
"Ahaha, check and mate. Outrage!" Lance said triumphantly.
I paled. As good a tank as Clappy was, I wasn't sure it could survive STAB Outrage coming from 134 base Attack (Or is it base 135?...idk. I don't play OU). Dragonite opened its maw, flames spewing out as it charged towards Clappy, claws outstretched...
Well, I guess this isn't the final part. Oh, well. I'll have the conclusion up on Sunday. It should be pretty short. And I won't update with White. I accidentally deleted the file. Not like anyone was pissing themselves with excitement. But maybe I'll do a White 2 Nuzlocke soon when it's released on Sunday (I so excited!). And I'm just writing off random stuff now, so I'm gonna finish this before I waste another two minutes of your life.
Gorm, I've never played Expert Emerald, but to Nuzlocke it seems really challenging. Good luck...you'll probably need it.
