Chapter 5: Veilstone City
Welcome back to another ~exciting~ installment of my Diamond Nuzlocke Challenge! Recently I have been playing a lot of Battle Factory in the HGSS Frontier, which has sent me through a somewhat rage-induced phase of hatred for Pokemon. Anyways, I'm back now, and we can carry on in our adventure. When I last left off, we had just reached Hearthome City. Now we get to do all this worthless stuff in the city before we can move on. :) So we go to the Contest Hall and receive my snazzy lookin' tux, and begin to leave the city to the south. This is where I meet my rival, who I forgot I was supposed to battle here. He leads off with Starly and rock quickly takes care of her. For Roselia, I switch out to Science the Ponyta, who easily takes it out with Ember. Buizel, jeez he's got so many mons. I move back to Birkal to take the water attacks and KO with Razor Leaf. Here's my dilemma, however. How do I take out Monferno? I think his Mach Punch can deal a number to rock and Science, but I decide rock is my best choice. Rock handles the punches like a BAUSS and KOes with Magnitude 7. Noice.
Now we head east to whatever is over here, past the hiker. Sorry bud, I don't really need a Happiny for this run. :/ Meh. I'd really like a chair to put my feet up on, but I may have broken it after one of my Battle Factory runs....I'm not proud. The first mon I face is a really low leveled Bonsly, I wonder if I went the wrong way? In the grass, I can catch a wild Pokemon. I wonder what it is!! Aaaaaand Bibarel. -.- No. Anyways, I decide since the mons are pretty easy in this area, I'll get Science some training. This is where I meet some twins, ready for a double battle! WOOO. Easy win. After a few more easy wins, we move into Solaceon Town. We're just passing through, though.
We jump into the cafe looking to score some Moomoo Milk, but we are stopped by trainers itching for a battle. We face a Clefairy who seems to really enjoy using Follow Me in single battles...he's really determined to be the center of attention. OOOOOHHH more grass. I can catch a new friend. Unless its...Kricketune...come on. It seems the Pokemon have now suddenly jumped in level, from the mid teens to low 20's. I hope we make it through. Looks like I'll just avoid everybody! LOOOOL!!1!! Man, Pokemon is a lot easier when you don't have to battle people. I'm very wary of my mons and their health, don't want to be losing too many pokes this early. I just need to get out of the rain, as it makes things tougher for two of my friends here. But this is when I meet a FREAKING GYARADOS. Awwww man. Luckily, Birkal manages to stay alive and put him in his place. I'm starting to run low on Super Potions, but I think we're almost out of the war zone.
And finally we pull into Veilstone. It's time to challenge the electric gym. It looks like it is gonna be easy. And then I realize, Veilstone is a fighting gym. It looks like Birkal will get some more work in...forget equal training...I think Birkal might evolve by the end of this. I'll try to omit all the gym trainers and the puzzles. Ughhhh. OKAY after several minutes of boring battles, we finally move on to Gym Leader Maylene. Unfortunately, I realize my Pokemon cannot take on a Level 30 Lucario. It looks like I'll have to go training.
UNFORTUNATELY, DEINO HAS STUFF HE HAS TO DO TODAY, SO I'LL HAVE TO END IT OFF HERE. I WILL EDIT IN THE BATTLE VS THE GYM LEADER AND TEAM INFO WHEN I CAN. SORRY FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE.
