Sapphire Water Mono-Type Challenge Update #2
Each part covers up to that gym battle
Ran around defeating all trainers near Mauville, since Sam was very close to level 20, I killed a few wild Pokémon to evolve him
I now no longer had a useless Magikarp, but a super epic awesome Gyarados thing.
Taught Rock smash to Sam and continued north
Got to Fallarbor town with no problem (focusing on exp for Ted)
Head to Lannette’s house, get the Lotad doll (I honestly have no idea what it does)
Head to meteor falls, Ted evolves into Pelipper on the way
Encounter Teams Aqua and Magma at Meteor falls
Went to the volcano to stop team Aqua and lost, because of my amazing idea of coming there with 2 half dead pokemon and no potions. Foresight is good
Came back and defeated him, though had some problems as my pokemon were slightly underleveled
Arrive in Lavaridge Town and go to the gym
Defeated Flannery with minor problems (her Torkoal got lucky and paralyzed Bob after he body slammed)
Team so far:
Bike down to Slateport to take Mr. Briney’s boat to Petalburg
Defeated trainers in Petalburg gym with no problem (Accuracy – Defense – Strength rooms)
Sam defeated the first Slaking and Vigoroth, but was reduced to red HP.
Ted did some damage to the second Slaking but was killed by a lucky crit.
Bob spammed Mud Slap and was able to kill it despite the fact that 2 hyper potions were used on it.
Taught surf to Sam, forgetting tackle
Headed to abandoned ship and caught a Tentacool, named it Mark because (guess why) I felt like it
Realized that Tentacool was now the highest level Pokémon I had
Went to abandoned ship, leveling Bob, and got a TM for Ice Beam to help in the next gym
Bob evolved into Swampert while surfing to Slateport
Taught Mark Ice Beam
Trained Mark so he gained a level and evolved
Defeated team Aqua at weather institute – received castform and boxed it IMMEDIATELY
Defeated May with no problems and received HM02 (Fly), which I taught to Ted
Got Devon Scope from Steven, and defeated Kecleons to open the way to the gym
Defeated Winona with ice beams, the only problem being Skarmory
