When we last left off, Lisa had just successfully battled Rose's entire security force of exactly ZERO grunts.

So, Rose is accompanied by some sort of... skeleton dragon Pokemon? Thing looks freaky nonetheless. Anyway he talks about his plans for energy gathering, sounding a lot like Queen Beryl. Except he didn't directly attack anybody, so he's not really evil. His plans (as most involving ancient legendary Pokemon do) had some... unintended consequences. We still have to fight,...

We last left off with Lisa leveling up in preparation to storm the Rose Tower and hundreds upon hundreds of grunts that must be waiting for her in that massive tower... right?
  • Chasing random grunt around the town square is annoying.
  • Can we not do the whole "partner with the person who calls himself a rival but doesn't know what it actually entails" battles? Finishing off his Pokemon first each time isn't a challenge, but it is tedious.
  • Also, a 1,000 foot

And, in sharp contrast to that epic cliffhanger, I'm told by Leon to leave it in his hands. I mean, whatever. If you don't want assistance from the girl with level 59 Pokemon, that's your loss.

Piers might have had odd hair, but at least he wasn't vain like Raihan and at least he didn't do the stupid growth thing. Aside from the...

After the most recent Gym battle, I need to accompany the elderly Gym Leader to Hammerlocke.
  • Back in Hammerlocke, we run into our old friend Bede. Remember him? The recently disqualified one? Well, apparently Opal takes a shine to his pink overcoat, and in an equal parts amusing and awkward scene, drags him back to her gym for hopefully not sinister purposes.
  • More explosions but apparently that's none of my business.
  • Time to head to Route 7. And... crap.

Well, Lisa just wrapped up business in Motostoke, but...
  • Cue annoying cutscene. At least Bede drags the annoyance away. Me crushing him multiple times hasn't taught him a lesson. Maybe Bede can. I'm counting on you to completely destroy and demoralize him, Bede. Send Hoppy-boy home with his tail between his legs. Maybe then I can persuade the league to assign me a better rival.
  • There are some interesting new Pokemon on this stretch of the Wild Area. Not interesting enough to
