Second part of my challenge.
(contains a link to my first
part, of course it's a link to my first post.).
From Roxanne to Brawly
After solo'ing Roxanne, I give RNG a Quick Claw to hold (he used his Oran Berry in the fight), and then we headed off to find our third team member, and to do some plot related stuff, but who cares?
Searching through the grass we found a Whismur, we caught her and named her Boombox, we then checked her nature and discovered, she too was Quiet natured. How even? And why? All 3 are Quiet natured, why?!
I wanted to test out my new teammate on Youngster Joey (yes, there's one in this game too) but he had a Machop, so that wasn't going to happen. So as Boombox and Jealous switch trained for a while to catch up to RNG, we realised that about half of the route was unaccesible, so I grabbed a ninada to use as a CUT slave.
After defeating an Aqua Grunt who apparently is a pirate, 'keelhaul it all'. His words, not mine. I was taken back to DEVON co. where they made me do their jobs for them for free. Well sort of, I got a phone out of it. On my way out, I spoke to one of the scientists, he mentioned something about making a machine that could reproduce a Pokemon's dreams. Tch, like that could ever happen.
After an inconsequential rival battle that I didn't even remember existing, I was sailing to Dewford Town with an old man who chases seagulls all day. On our way there the boat came to a screeching halt because DAD NORMAN gave me a call. Upon arrival in this small town, a kid asked me what was the up and coming cool thing, I told him all about the Scramble Challange, or at least I would have if those words existed, so I told him about the Scatter Challenge instead.
After clearing out the gym trainers in Dewford I put a lot of thought into what I was going to do for this gym. Jealous would have been able to beat it no problem, but RNG has to solo more gyms in order to evolve into a Swampert, so I decided, to solo Brawly with RNG.
(Interesting thing about Brawly, he's a surfer who uses Fighting types, and Crasher Wake, is a wrestler, who uses Water types. Also, when you beat Brawly, he makes a lot of water puns. 'You made a bigger splash than I expected'. 'You swamped me'. -shrugs-)
After perhaps the most tortuous battle I have ever done on any play through ever (and that includes 3 nuzlockes) RNG solo'd Brawly and is now way over levelled. Oh, and the battle was followed by a very anticlimactic evolution cancel.
RNG/Mudkip (M) @Quick Claw
1/3 gym leaders solo'd
RNG is going to evolve soon and take on that sweet Ground typing. Not a lot to say really, solo'ing Brawly using only Water Gun and Growl was pretty impressive.
Kind of a quiet update for Jealous, most of my focus was on Boombox and RNG for this segment of them game. In all honesty I don't think Jealous is going to impact my play at all until I get to the elite 4.
Boombox/Whismur (F) @Silk Scarf
19/25 sound moves used.
I did a lot of grinding with Boombox and at one stage she got into a battle with a Geodude that just kept spamming Defense Curl, so she got heaps of move uses up. However, I haven't used her in a real battle yet, so I guess we'll see how she goes then. She does have to solo a gym leader at some point too, I'm dreading that.
There's also a Nincada in my box somewhere. I don't think I need cut, but it'll be nice to be able to use it and get extra stuff.
Next up, I'll be getting Random the Makuhita, I've really been looking forward to this.
