Chapter 2 of my Scramble is below which covers until the third Scramblemon.
Joey seemed rather pissed at Quote for some reason and when I try to use Quote in battle, he immediately came out of his Pokeball and battle instead. So I ended up training him on Route 29 where he got extremely excited every time he defeated a member of his own kind (all 10 of them). Once he reached level 10, Joey calmed down and didn’t jump out to battle when I try to use Quote. I figured out that he must be on top level wise or otherwise he gets cranky. Great, another Pokemon with a personality problem and I thought Pokemon aren’t supposed to be like people.
I proceed to travel to Violet City where the first gym is located and began to walk on Route 30. Joey defeated another Rattata before encountering a kid named Joey and beat his Rattata with Joey. Then another brat named Mikey challenged me and defeated both his Pidgey and Rattata with Joey. I noticed a Bug Catcher and wanted to some fun with him by sending Quote out to burn his Caterpies even though he doesn’t have a fire move yet. After encountering a couple more Rattata (15) which Joey enjoyed defeating, I encountered another Bug Trainer which Quote easily defeated especially with its new move, Ember. Afterwards, I noticed the value on Quote’s device changed from 60 to 65 which defeating two trainers on its own increases its quota by 5. For now, I seem able to use Quote’s moves fully.
Just before I went to Violet City, Lyra caught up to me at the gate and gave me the VS Recorder. She mentioned that she wasn’t going to let me be ahead of her ever again, we’ll see about that. At Violet City, I rested up and stock up on some potions. Then I went to Route 36 and pick up the Rock Smash HM from some guy. Man people are extremely nice and willing to give me stuff without even asking. While I was on Route 31, I noticed a cave that I avoided because I didn’t want to get sidetrack. After being in Violet City, I decided to head for the cave but with the inability to smash rocks or see very far, I couldn’t fully explored the cave. I guess that’s the reason it’s called the Dark Cave but I get a new Pokemon to add to the party. It was a Zubat which I named Batman after the legendary hero who saved Johto long ago.
Quote the Level 10 Gentle Male Cyndaquil - Jiimera0
Current BP Limit: 65 (+5 from soloing two trainers)
Opinion: This one maybe one of the tougher challanges due to losing battles has some negative drawbacks with the BP limit along with using healing items will lower the limit as well.
Tackle (35 BP)
Ember (60 BP)
Joey the Level 11 Rash Male Rattatta - Recec
Rattattas solo: 15/20
Opinion: It was the first one I encounter that I could catch. I wasn't going to catch a female one since the name is male. It will take some time for me to grind Joey's level so he could the highest member of the party. I'll stay at Route 29 so where Rattattas have a low encounter rate. I'm going to take the solo Rattatta challenge with Trainers as much as I can. I like the part of Capable of Taking Hits in the Summary part.
Batman the Level 2 Mild Male Zubat - Present
Ability: Inner Focus
Opinion: Juggling level reqs between both Batman and Joey will be a test of management. I did encounter a few Zubats before getting this one but they were all female and surprising they were all level 2. I will going to do some grinding to get Batman to second highest level of the party.
I know I can get the fourth Scramblemon at the Dark Cave but I'm not going to do it at 1% encounter rate. I haven't decided what to do at the first Gym yet but I can do in a few ways. At one point, my game froze multiple times while grinding Joey which I learned to save constantly.
