Another update. Thank God someone posted lol.
First went to Solaceon Ruins to get Defog and a Fire Stone.
Grinded outside Lost Tower against Roselias to get Pyre to L24, when it learned Flamerthrower.
Armed with a real attack, went up Lost Tower, training Pyre to match the rest of my team.
Went east from Solaceon to Veilstone City.
Went to the gym, beat Maylene, who was pretty hard. Pyro was indispensable against Lucario. Forgot a screenshot.
After helping Dawn get her Pokedex back, Looker took me into the Warehouse, where I got Fly and taught it to Silver.
Flew back to Floarama Town and got the Pluck TM I forgot earlier, taught to Silver.
Made my way down to Pastoria City, home of the Great Marsh and my last team member, Skorupi. Had to change the date a couple times as Skorupi is a changing Pokemon.
Caught one at L28, Female with Careful Nature.
After rebattling the Eeveelution trainer a couple times and getting Dig (taught to Slasher), I was ready to challenge the gym...or so I thought.
Nolan showed up. I took care of him easily.
He wasn't too difficult. Don't really remember much about the battle, though.
Healed up, then challenged the gym.
I was underleveled against Crasher Wake, but it was fine.
Funny how Silver is always my final Pokemon in these screenshots...NOT!
After beating Crasher Wake, it was plot time.
I followed the Grunt and finally beat it down.
Cythia showed up with the SecretPotion, which I took to the Psyducks outside Rt 210.
Along with the Old Charm and Fluffy (Defog), I made my way to Celestic Town.
Beat the bomb-toting Grunt, then went inside the cave.
Cyrus shows up, wants to change the world. No wai!
I actually lost once because I made stupid moves and switches. The second time was fine though. Silver again the final member out there.
Got Surf from the Elder, taught it to Zapp of course.
In Jubilife City, I got the Marking Map app for the Poketch, then Surfed to Canalave City.
On the bridge, Nolan, fresh from the Gym, wants to battle. Okay!
Beat him pretty easily. Pyre is out there this time for Torterra.
Went to train in Iron Island before challenging the gym.
Am currently about to fight the Team Galatic Grunts there, but will do some grinding first to get my team up to L40 I think, so that Draken and Slasher will have evolved. Will use the Fire Stone on Pyre when she learn Extrasensory at L44 I think.
I'm gonna need another Heart Scale (have one right now) - Draipon for Ice Fang, Ninetales for Nasty Plot perhaps.
