Another Update. Whee!
Okay, from when we left off, Skyla was beat, & it was time to hit the plane to Lentimas Town, where the trek up the east coast of Unova would begin. Not much happens at Lentimas, as I then go to Strange House to get the Lunar Wing, before finally hitting the mighty Reversal Mountain. There, I was teamed up with the lovely Bianca & her semi-helpful Pokémon to help trek through the place...Which also meant unlimited recoveries. Whee! So Bianca & I waltz through the place, finding rumours about a magma monster lurking, & taking on & winning battles without much thought. Before we knew it, we were at Undella Town, where Bianca sadly departed, depriving me of free recoveries... :(
Moving on, & after looking around, I then go & grind on Route 14, where I could not progress further due to randoms blocking the way "for some reason". I then go to grind on the water at Undella Bay, beating the trainers there & finding a cave...Where I could not go further...Thanks to a Blackbelt who said I was "not sturdy enough" to fight him. What a chicken. The Blackbelt had Roggenrola with him. ROGGENROLA. Out of all the things he could have chosen, he picked a Pokémon that was weak to the specialised Black Belt Type. I think he was afraid that I had a Golduck by my side. Meh, whatever, time to continue via. Route 13, but then as soon as I headed for the gate in Undella Town, fucking Hugh came along & asked for a battle. I had no choice.
Hugh was just a fail opponent, easily being romped, Shy the Magnezone too strongth. Also, Furious the Golduck too. I never liked him anyway, so where was I? Oh yes. I went to make the long trip up Route 13, which beckoned lots of trainers to gain experience on, & a Psychic TM to teach Furious to! Later on, a Cobalion showed up & wanted me to fight it. Unless I had the time & patience to SR for a good natured one, & the luck to catch it, I was not interested, & given my traditionally poor luck, I skipped it. Then came Lacunosa Town where I learn a story about a "big scary dragon that eats things alive." Was the dragon not caught by the BW protagonist two years ago? I do not know, but when I healed up & got ready to head out on the road to Opelucid City, Hugh was there again...And he brought company. Some Plasma Grunt & a Sage called "Zinzolin". Was that guy not arrested by Looker two years ago? I do not know, but Hugh & I were forced to team up to take on the Grunt & the Sage.
The two failed as well. 0MagSlag the Weezing's Return attack proved too hot for Zinzolin's Cryogonal & Sneasel, & Hugh's Emboar was boss against the grunt. After that, it was time to head to Opelucid City. Route 12 was very hilly with not much trainers...Only an annoying Heracross being a haxxy piece of shit. Village Bridge was next, with creepy singers...And an annoying Gentleman who would fight anyone he could find on the bridge for a 1,000 Win Streak. The guy did not even stand a chance. His Lucario's coverage was so terrible
that he was forced to spam Quick Guard. QUICK GUARD. Against a Weezing. No wonder why he will never get a 1,000 win streak...Especially when his Lucario has HEAL PULSE. Anyhow, after cleaning up Village Bridge, it was Route 11 next, where a Virizion tried to jump me. I bypassed it, & then made a clean road for Opelucid City.
At Opelucid, it was gym time, but first, I went to Route 9, & cleaned up the trainers there & in the shopping mall. I also caught a Prankster Liepard in the Grotto there, but that is unimportant. I then made a detour back to Lacunosa to get a Fire Blast TM to teach 0MagSlag, & after that, it was Gym Time. With an under-levelled team. Besides 0MagSlag. The trainers were tough, but taken care of, & finally, I get to Drayden, & take him on.
First was Reckless the Darmanitan vs. Druddigon. Reckless got in a Superpower, but died pretty quickly. So it was up to 0MagSlag to Sludge Bomb it to death, making Drayden use his only Hyper Potion in the process. Furious came out for Flygon, & weathered the Earth Power storm with the help of items, to take out Flygon. Then I sent in Rover the Stoutland against Altaria. Altaria was annoying. Maxxing out its Defence quickly, & annoying with damaging moves which failed to 3HKO, I made precautions & spammed Full Heals on Sing, as well as Moomoo Milk spam, to eventually get Rover to +6 Attack with Work Up. Then it was time to spam +6 Tackle. It dealt pathetic damage to Altaria. Though no reliable recovery, alongside no Hyper Potion, & no attacking move PP left, meant that Altaria would eventually fall. Finally, Haxorus came to the fold. Rover stayed in. I get ready to fire with +6 Tackle. Haxorus used Dragon Dance. Hopefully, Tackle would KO. It did not. It got Haxorus to low yellow, before Sitrus Berry kicked in. I select Tackle, in hope that Haxorus would not sweep me, & the rest of my team. Surely it could KO with X-Scissor. It did not. In fact, it used Dragon Tail, not that I would see it, as Tackle KOed Haxorus, & that was it. I had won my seventh Badge. And the Dragon Tail TM. Whee!
After that, I was invited to Drayden's House, not that I would go there yet, as I simply healed up & ended the Scramble Update, ready for the next leg of the adventure.
Magnezone [Shy] (-)
Lv45 | Magnet Pull | Impish
Comments: Shy needs a more reliable STAB coverage, & Electro Ball is unreliable as fuck... -.-
Darmanitan [Reckless] (M)
Lv45 | Sheer Force | Jolly
5/5 #Times died to recoil damage
Comments: This damage machine is still as great as ever, but failed badly in the Opelucid Gym... :(
Leavanny [Grub] (F) @ Miracle Seed
Lv45 | Chlorophyll | Gentle
Comments: Fuk 4× Effective attacks, but at least the level curve means I can use her very often. Against Trainers.
Stoutland [Rover] (F)
Lv46 | Sand Rush | Bashful
Comments: asdfghjkl; why can she not OHKO a Haxorus with a Tackle at +6 Attack...Says a lot about her terrible offensive options... :(
Golduck [Furious] (M) @ Leftovers
Lv47 | Cloud Nine | Bold
20/20 trainers soloed
Comments: Solid attacker. Still meh, but has grown to be a great Special Attacker if anything.
Weezing [0MagSlag] (M) @ Lucky Egg
Lv50 | Levitate | Impish
Comments: Fire Blast is a bold gamble if I want to take out Colress later on, but for now, 0MagSlag's high level means he still takes a healthy workload, & he is still as impressive as ever.
And that is all. Next update: Freeze storms, Roggenrola man gets Roggenrola'd (Not literally), & Marlon!
