Update: Here we go!
So Drayden was beaten, & we last left off in Opelucid City. The next part was to go to his house, & I did. Causing a cold reception to happen, as a flying ship went over Opelucid City, freezing the bloody place. Then Team Plasma Grunts went on their way, plundering the place, forcing Drayden & I to take care of the damn things. After three of them felt my wrath, I managed to catch Zinzolin in the act, & battled him. Reckless the Darmanitan wasted no time in bulldozing through his party with brute force. After that, the DNA Splicers Drayden "had" was stolen, & I was forced to chase after the robbers: Supernatural beings that do the physically impossible. Eventually, I found one of the beings, & pounded him out of the sky with Grub the Leavanny. Grub also learned Swords Dance in the process. Though in reality, the being just "disappeared". After that episode, it was time to travel to Humilau City.
So, then came the long boring trek down the eastern side of Unova to Undella Town. Meh. I then arrive at Undella Town & take the "amazing" Marine Tube to Humilau City. All I saw was random Mantine & Basculin. No Wailord. Upon arrival, Hugh was there & pestered me to take on Marlon. Not yet, after finding the guy in water, I then go to train my Pokémon by beating the trainers in Route 22, 21, & Seaside Cave. In that order. Well, in the cave, I met up with Roggenrola man again. He finally thought I was "Sturdy enough" to battle him, so I did. Rover the Stoutland 4HKOed the first Roggenrola with Bite, & Furious the Golduck Surfed the remaining Roggenrola to oblivion. The spoils? No more blockage in Seaside Cave! After the grinding, it was time to take on the final Gym. The Gym Trainers did not present too much trouble, as I eventually got to Marlon, & battled him for Badge #8!
Reckless the Darmanitan lead the battle against Marlon's Wailord. Reckless simply spammed Superpower before Wailord set up Rain & OHKOed with Earthquake. Grub entered the fold, & OHKOed with Leaf Blade after Marlon went for his only Hyper Potion. I then sent in Shy the Magnezone for Mantine, & despite Confusion hax & Shy being hurt badly, it was still a 2HKO with Electro Ball after a Thunder Wave. Grub came back out for Carracosta, & Grub dealt huge damage with Leaf Blade, only for Sturdy to keep Carracosta alive...Then Carracosta OHKOed Grub with Rock Slide...Bugger. Nevertheless, Furious came in & finished off Carracosta with a Surf. Jellicent was last, & I sent in 0MagSlag the Weezing to take it on. 0MagSlag managed to Poison with Sludge Bomb, but Jellicent then responded with a Scald Burn...A Venoshock only then went to deal minor damage, before Jellicent took out 0MagSlag with a Shadow Ball. Finally, Rover the Stoutland came in, used Work Up once, & then used Bite through Jellicent's recovering to eventually take out the thing with a Critical Hit Bite! And with that, the 8th Badge was won, & I got the Scald TM to compensate.
After the battle, I healed up, gearing ready for the next leg of my adventure: to Route 22 again...
