I have my third update ready to go.


- Trained up my team for the Canalave Gym after catching Vulcan the Magmortar.

- Easily defeated Barry on the bridge.

- Trained up at Iron Island. I would've caught a Graveler, but of course Smash the Machamp beat it down before I could do so with a critical hit.

- Battled through the Canalave Gym, and then challenge Byron. I've always underestimated Magmortar, but because of this battle, I know how good it is. Vulcan destroyed every one of Byron's Pokemon until Bastiodon came out, but Smash killed it in one Cross Chop.

- Went to the library and talked to Rowan, Dawn, and Barry. That explosion happened, too.

- Flew over to Pastoria to get to the Lake, once I got there, I beat down some grunts. Saturn was no match for my team, though.

- Beat Mars at Lake Verity. I love Smash so much. Oh so much.

- Caught Rocky the Nosepass in Mt. Coronet (I had been saving my encounter). In addition, after that, I caught Spirit the Snorunt, who I evolved into a Froslass and grinded up. I now had the final component to my team.

- Got to Snowpoint City, grinded up some more, then entered the gym. Candice was... Really easy. Magmortar just plowed through anything I used him against, and Smash took out Froslass with Payback (Thank goodness for having No Guard).

- Went back to the Lake to see Barry was finally defeated by someone other than me.

- Flew to Veilstone City and entered the HQ. You gotta enjoy taking out Grunts one by one. Microsoft the Porygon2 almost died, but a well timed Hyper Potion against that scientist with the Porygon2 that knew Tri-Attack helped out. I got the Dubious Disc, but I really didn't want to evolve Porygon2 because I don't need another frail-ish special attacker and I love the utility of Porygon2.

- Cyrus wasn't too bad. Polaris the Empoleon took down Sneasel while Spirit defeated Crobat and Vulcan did the same for Honchkrow. Once more, Saturn didn't stand a chance.

- Battled through Mt. Coronet. Of course, my first encounter on the outside part is an Absol. Whatever....

- Double teamed Jupiter and Mars with Barry. I hate that freaking Munchlax. It's so useless.

- Went through the Distortion World fairly easily. The puzzles aren't hard at all...

- This battle against Cyrus was... Interesting, and also somewhat saddening. Jay the Staraptor took down Houndoom with no problems. I sent out Spirit against Crobat, which proved to be my undoing. Spirit kept hitting itself in confusion, whereas when I used her last time, Cyrus never used a confusion inducing move. RIP Spirit the Froslass, you will be missed. Gyarados will never be a problem with Microsoft, so that was easy. Weavile and Honchkrow were both finished off by Vulcan.

- Giratina was easier than I thought it would be. All it took was a couple Ice Beams from Polaris.

- I was in for quite a surprise when I hit Spring Path to get my next team member. I found a Dusclops, which is exactly the kind of Pokemon I wanted. I named him Reaper. Did I mention it has a Brave nature, so my Attack goes up? I evolved him into a Dusknoir and grinded him up to level 48 like the rest of my team.

- Currently I'm levelling up my team to go up against Volkner.
