He starts off with Primeape while I open with Arcana. He begins with Double Team (ugh), but I hit him with Mud Shot, lowering his Speed. Him: 70% or so HP, +1 Evasion and -1 Speed. He then uses Rock Slide, which doesn't do much at all, while I hit him with another Mud Shot. Him: 1/3 or so HP, +1 Evasion and -2 Speed. He tightens his focus, but I hit through the evasion with Mud Shot yet again and kill him.
Next up is Poliwrath. He decides to not waste any time and tighten his focus, and I use Mud Shot…and miss. Yeah, AFTER I get rid of the evasion noob is when I miss. And I take a big hit. Me: 32/102 HP. He tries to use it again, but I hit with Mud Shot, lower his Speed and break his focus. I switch in Marhaus as death fodder for Focus Punch, and he does indeed die in one hit. I bring in Gareth and use Thunderbolt, which comes short of killing him, but his Sitrus Berry activates and he uses Surf. Him: 35% or so HP and -1 Speed, Me: 23/101 HP. I kill him with Thunderbolt and end the battle.

Mahogany Gym overview:
Team entering the fight: Gareth LV32 / Choice Specs - Fire Blast, Thunderbolt, Peck, Double Kick

He starts off with Seel while I open with Gareth. I use Thunderbolt, which kills him in one hit.
Next up is Dewgong. Okay, good, because if it was Piloswine I would have been forced to switch because of the Choice Specs. I use Thunderbolt, which doesn't quite kill him, and he uses Aurora Beam, which hits rather hard. Him: 1/4 or so HP, Me: 32/104 HP. I use a Lemonade just to see what he's gonna do…and he uses Ice Shard, so I was right to do that! Me: 72/104 HP. I use Thunderbolt and finish him off. Gareth grows to Level 33 after that.
Finally is Piloswine. I switch out to Marhaus, while he misses with Blizzard. Unfortunately, he hits with it next turn and kills me. So I bring in Arcana, and he uses Blizzard again, which does less than half while I hit him with Surf and knock him to his Sitrus Berry. Him: 48% or so HP, Me: 60/108 HP. He misses with Blizzard, and I hit him with one more Surf, killing him and ending the battle.
-Was told by Professor Elm to go to Goldenrod and confront Team Rocket.
-Was disguised as a Team Rocket grunt, but Merlin busted my disguise. Y U BUST MY DISGUISE BRO?
-Beat the grunts and found Petrel up top.
-Beat Petrel; he should have been a breeze, but I misclicked and used Mud Shot first turn while Arcana was locked in with the Choice Specs, then Weezing used Smokescreen after I got Arcana in and tried to use Surf. After that, when I switched in Arcana again, he used Smokescreen and I missed more than once. Anyway, I got the Basement Key from him.
-Met with one of the Kimono Girls in Goldenrod Tunnel.
-Took on Merlin and beat him. Golbat was easily OHKOed by Choice Specs Thunderbolt from Gareth, Sneasel was disposed of by Rocky, Quilava was helpless against Arcana, and Haunter and Magnemite were beaten by Gareth's Fire Blast.
-Beat the rest of the grunts, they were all all easy and boring.
-Made it through the tunnel and got the Card Key.
-Beat the last three Executives. Proton was easy, Ariana was a little problematic, and Archer got very unlucky. With that, I got the Silver Wing.
-Healed my Pokémon, good riddance.
