I've been grinding levels like crazy for the past few days, especially for Zweilous. He finally evolved after annihilating Shauntal and Caitlin. I am hoping that my new Hydreigon can take care of Grimsley and Marshal despite the Dark/Fighting types coming up! Here's my sad line up (I was going to include Volcarona/Carracosta but I am having enough trouble training these 4 with 3 lucky eggs):
Um wow lol. Finally picked up White again after 7 months. ;(
I took a huge break from playing White because I got what I bought it for - RNG'd Zekrom. After catching that and losing to N, I just lost motivation to complete it. That changes today. ;)
I've ditched Vanillish since she's being horribly weak. I have swapped her out for an RNG'd Scolipede I just raised today. He's a measly level 32. I still think he's doing better at his level than ice cream 'mon was doing, haha. I'm fixing up bumping Scolipede up some levels during the final two battles since I'm sick of training him on Route 10. Oh man, it's so hard to train in this game! XD;
Here's my update for the finale: 237th Day: 8 badges : 19 hours
Hydreigon Lv. 67
Lilligant Lv. 50
Zebstrika Lv. 45
Scolipede Lv. 32
After some exploring of Nimbasa, I ventured over to Lostlorn Forest to capture a Petilil. I figured she would come in handy for my 5th gym battles. After training her up I evolved her into Lilligant. This is my first run through using Lilligant and she's a lot more useful than Whimiscott was. What with Quiver Dance and all that.
So now I'm in Driftveil City and I have already taken out Team Plasma, which was really easy. Cheren was useless as always. I'm lurking around the Cold Storage to capture Minccino and Vanillite. I will probably be getting my 5th badge soon after I catch them.
Team at this point:
I'm hoping to decide on a 6th party member soon. :D
Since my last post I've finished the main storyline of the game. I'll do a quick recap.
I defeated Iris with just my Lilligant and Carracosta. After I beat her and received my Master Ball from Prof. Juniper, I dodged all the trainers on the way to the Victory Road gates. I really don't like those gates. ;n;
I battled as little trainers as I had to while making my way to the top of Victory Road. Along the way though I caught a Durant and a Rufflet.
Before I entered the Pokemon League I went to the PC to grab my Chandelure.
My team for the Elite Four were:
Elite Four was a breeze. I used the PC in N's Castle to switch out my party with my RNG party so that I could catch Zekrom first. After catching a flawless Jolly Zekrom I went back and kicked N/Ghetsis around a bit.
After saving the game and waiting for the credits to finish rolling, I went on a Pokemon catching spree. Catching anything that I didn't have data for. :P It was a lot of fun.
It doesn't seem like I'm already at Pinwheel Forest so soon after receiving my first Pokemon yesterday from Professor Juniper. You remember that little Snivy I chose? It's now a Servine! We get on so well as well, I really think he's starting to like me
I caught a Patrat as well soon after leaving home, he's very useful but we just don't seem to get on, it's quite upsetting but I'm going to try harder so we can be friends. But that isn't the best news, I went to the Pokecenter and a man was waiting for me, he said he had a special gift for me a strange Pokemon called Victini, I looked at my Pokedex and it's number 000 for some reason, the entry also says that Victini has a lot of energy stored inside, but it doesn't listen to me at the moment, I think when I have more badges it might do and so I have already started, I won my first badge against Chilli, he tried to use a Fire Type Pansear against my Snivy, fortunately a kind lady gave me a Panpour to have the type advantage, Panpour did well and the victory gave us a special relationship, but I don't know if he really wants to keep on battling, he never really seems up for it, I may let him rest for a bit soon, when I find a good enough Pokemon to take his place, they have big boots to fill though.
I met Professor Juniper's friend Fennel and helped her to pick up some Dream Smoke from the Pokemon Musharna, she said she could use the smoke to send Pokemon to the 'Dream World' and synchronise the Pokemon's dreams to our world! It seems really complex and confusing but I let Victini nod off to the Dream World, when I woke it up it had made friends with some strange Pokemon and brought them back, there was a Croagunk, Mamoswine and a Lickitung, the Pokedex can't find anything on them but I contacted Professor Juniper and she said they may be Pokemon from other parts of the world, it's weird to think there are other types of Pokemon out there in different parts of the world and for Victini to know they existed.
I need to go now having defeated Lenora with a Throh as some strange hippie guys talking about Pokemon Freedom have stolen a skull from the Museum and I've been asked to help get it back. I'll show you photo's of my Pokemon Friends so far. Hope to send another letter soon.
I have been staying in Nimbasa City for the last few days and a lot of things have changed since I became a Pokemon Trainer. I battled a friendly boy named Martin and rode with him on the Ferris Wheel. I have also been rotating my main team to train them. I also did some Rotation Battles in Opelucid City as well as a Triple Battle at the Marvelous Bridge. I'm also exploring Castelia City and Undella Town. Yes Mom, I know it's winter in Unova right now so I have my cold weather gear just in case if I go somewhere cold.
I send you this last message for the night from a hotel in Castelia City, it's nice to have a comfy bed again after sleeping in a tent in Pinwheel forest, in Winter! But then I managed to get back that skull I was on about last time, so the Nacrene City Museum is back to normal, with a bit of help from me
My Pokemon are doing brilliantly, Croagunk has really proven himself, I still don't know where in the world he came from but I don't care, he is a great addition to the team and is getting on really well with the others. I think I will spend a lot of tomorrow working with the guys and building them up, I have to be careful with Blitzle though, I traded him on the GTS and rumour has it if he goes beyond level 30 at the moment he won't listen to me, I'm going to have to prove I am worthy though and get more badges.
I'll try and keep you updated tomorrow, but I will see what happens. For the moment here is where the guys are at now.
Servine lvl 22
Blitzle (Japanese) lvl 20
Croagunk lvl 20
Patrat lvl 16
Panpour lvl 16
Pidove lvl 20
thought I'd patch todays adventures onto the last set of adventures
Anyway, we had a lazy day in Castelia City, took in some of the sights and tried to get one of the famous Castelia Cones, but being Winter, they don't sell them . After our lazy time we got ready to battle the Gym Leader, Burgh, but he had to help someone who had, had their Pokemon stolen from them! Turns out it was Team Plasma who had stolen Bianca's Pokemon! I'm sure you already know by now, but Bianca is alright now and we got back her Pokemon, a little girl, Iris? Helped her out and she is back and better than ever, I still beat her in a Pokemon battle but she had a lot more up her sleeves this time.
Once we had helped Bianca out I went to battle Burgh and beat him! Soon after we left for Route 4 and into Nimbasa City, as soon as we got in we found some Team Plasma goons trying to steal Pokemon from the Daycare Man, I helped him out and he gave me a new bicycle! We then headed out to Lostlorn Forest to train up a bit and Pidove evolved into a Tranquil .
Unfortunately Panpour hasn't been able to keep up with the training so he is now resting in the PC, if you need a water assistant at home, I'm sure he would be happy to go home and help you out, thus I have had to get another member to our team, luckily I was given a fossil near Route 4 and travelled to Nacrene City to revive it and got a Tirtouga, he's settled in nicely and I think will do well, anyway I'm hitting the hay, speak to you later.
I have been doing some stuff today, including my secondary job as a Pokemon Breeder and I was given an egg that hatched into Rhyhorn. She's a girl and I plan to train her well. I also caught a new Pokemon, a Kricketune which I will also bond with. I will soon return to the Pokemon Day Care to pick up another egg. My Gulpin also evolved into Swalot.
Where to begin, its been a big day, I went on some of the rides at the Amusement Park in Nimbasa City and even had a ride with this strange guy called 'N' he announced that he was the king of Team Plasma! Anyway I went into the gym as well, its part of the amusement park, imagine that, I defeated Elsa and her shocking team and made it across to Driftveil City, unfortunately crossing the bridge caused some Team Plasma punks, they ran off into the Cold Storage, but I caught them and stopped them. I then challenged the gym leader Clay, I defeated him as well
I then made my way to Mistralton City helping out the leader Skyla in finding an injured Pokemon on top of Celestial Tower, I then beat Skyla and made my way into Twist Mountain. It was long and tiring but I made it through into Icirrus City where I'm now going to catch some shut eye
Love James xx
Today I started my journey through Unova with a very jolly Snivy.
I fought both Bianca and Cheren, winning my first two battles then continued to Professor Juniper's lab to receive a Pokédex.
After being taught how to catch a Patrat with Mincinno by the Professor I made my way to Accumula Town to hear a speach on Pokémon being enslaved by humans, which then led to a fierce easy battle with some random trainer claiming to hear my Snivy's voice.
After this weird encounter I got a call via the Xtransciever from my Mom who wasn't far behind to give me my Running Shoes finally.
I battled with a few more trainers catching myself a wild Lillipup then as I was about to reach Striaton City...
Bianca caught up with me demanding a battle.
I was eager to get it over with so my Snivy made quick work which was a shame as he didn't recieve much exp.
Over at the Dreamyard I picked up a female Panpour then battled Cheren in the Trainer School.
Whilst training my Panpour I caught myself a rather Timid Patrat then fought Chili.
Now I was the proud owner of the Trio Badge Fennel a professor and friend of Juniper asked me to find some Dream Mist, but instead I found Team Plasma kicking a defenseless Munna so I helped out earning myself the C-gear and Palpad.Woot
I then traded my Lillipup and Panpour for a Pikachu and an egg containing Eevee, two Pokémon I will be using on my team.
I raised my Pikachu from level 2 to 14, after I stored Snivy and Patrat then saved.
Edit: Dear Journal,
Today I didn't do much at all except, made my Trio Badge all nice and shiny then caught three different Patrats to trade over a few more eggs for my team and finally hatched my new female modest Eevee.
On Route 3 I entered in a double battle with Pikachu and Eevee, after Pikachu was level 15 and Eevee is now level 8.
I have been exploring the Dreamyard after hearing of a Musharna that hides there on Fridays. I also picked up a new TM, Dream Eater and I found Musharna and caught her afterwards. She managed to learn Dream Eater and Psychic and I rode on the Ferris Wheel with Martin again. Winter is nearly coming to a close, in a few days Spring will begin and I can finish my Deerling project with the Scientists on Route 6.
Today I continued my journey by heading to the Dreamyard to catch myself a Munna aswell as a Purrloin and Audino.
The Audino took longer then expected as I kept running into other wild Pokémon rather than the shaking grass.
I finally hatched my Pokémon eggs today and now my team consists of a Pikachu, Eevee, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle.
Also somewhere else in Unova, a friend of mine simply known as Black is breeding two Pokémon for the sixth member of my team.
I will leave you all guessing if it isn't that obvious, then I saved my game.
After beating my White version, I explored White Forest, Lacunosa Town, Giant Chasm, Route 13, and Route 12.
My White Forest was very empty so I linked up to Black. I liked being able to visit my other game but I'm disappointed over the apparent time limit. I managed to get Abra and Nidoran Male native to my White Forest. Not very good, but I'll connect sometime again soon to replenish my forest.
At Giant Chasm, I caught Kyurem and added it to my team as a flier. It wasn't too difficult to catch. After I used Darkrai to put Kyurem to sleep and in the red zone, I caught Kyurem within 5 Dive balls.
I eventually found myself on Route 12. I beat all the trainers and camped there for like ever. I had to stay on the route so the trainers, once defeated, would stand still. I didn't want them moving and advancing my frames. I RNG abused a good shiny haul, such as Rapidash, Heracross, Pinsir, Cherrim, and Metapod. I couldn't get a good shiny female Combee though.
My team right now is pretty scarce late-game. Not sure if I should do the Hall of Fame again or train something. I boxed my main team and other helpful Pokemon. Now I just run around and beat up trainers with legendary Pokemon.
With it being the new year and everything, I decided to continue with my adventure through Unova.
I left Wellspring Cave after some training for my Bulbasaur and Squirtle as they had a type advantage over the Roggenrola's that were living there.
Some little girl that was with Bianca gave me some strange looking pokéballs then left.
I continued south on Route 3 bumping into Cheren, he mentioned something about wild double Pokémon encounters in the darker grass.
I battled all the remaining trainers on the Route then finally arrived at Nacrene City!
Cheren immediately shown me to the PokéCenter which if he hadn't, I doubt I would have found.
I headed to the Pokémon Museum after healing my Pokémon to battle the weird dude that I met back in Accumula Town, the mysterious trainer N.
N then left mentioning something about the power of Zekrom which I didn't know anything about..
Before entering the Museum, I decided to write in you.
