    Wow, you've got some perseverance, Koldsned. Way to go, and good luck on run number 2!

    Anyway, before I do my update, I'd like to post a disclaimer. I am sorry to dragon0fangz that I chose the same Pokémon line as you, but it was not because I was copying you. I didn't even know that anyone was doing a Metang run when I started. I chose Beldum - Metagross because I felt it would be a challenging run, and because I've never used a Metagross on any of my teams before. Please do not be upset with me, I did not intend to copy you.

    Now for the update:

    Hoenn Log 4

    More bullets with more stuff from yesterday and today are ahead. I think I'm just gonna keep writing in this journal every other day.

    -Left from Mauville
    -Crossed a river and headed north
    -Ran into Steven and talked about raising Pokémon
    -Caught a Manectric for Flash and Strength slave; nicknamed it Caterpie
    -Wound up the loooooong path to find Team Aqua grunts and a building
    -Entered the building, which was a weather institute, and saw that it was swarmed with Aquas
    -Beat them all and rescued the scientists
    -Met up with May again and had a quick battle
    -BATTLE: Pelipper down after Psychic, same for Combusken and Lombre
    -After May left, the Scott dude showed up again and talked about me beating May
    -Finally entered Fortree City
    -Tried to go to the Gym, but something invisible was in the way
    -Headed out to the east for training
    -Ran into Steven again
    -Steven showed me the Devon Scope and revealed an invisible obstacle to be a Kecleon
    -Borrowed the Devon Scope and scared off the Kecleon in front of the Gym
    -Entered the Gym
    -Rotated my way through all the puzzles
    -Got dizzy once or twice
    -Reached Winona and started the battle
    -BATTLE: Swablu and Tropius fell with one hit from Metal Claw, Altaria from two, Skarmory required two Psychics, and Pelipper only needed one
    -Received the Feather Badge

    -Left the Gym and got a call from Scott

    And today:
    -Left Fortree towards the east and followed the trail as it turned south
    -Realized how much I hate the moves Detect, Protect, and Fake Out
    -Also discovered how much I despise double battles
    -Followed the path as it turned back to east, then saw a bunch of Team Aqua goons heading for a place they called Mt. Pyre
    -Tailed them to said place
    -Followed them up the mountain to the peak
    -Saw Archie snag the Red Orb and found out that Maxie had already gotten the Blue Orb
    -Found a Magma Emblem that Team Magma accidentally left behind
    -Continued on to Lillycove City
    -Ran into May yet again standing in front of the Department Store
    -She told me there was great shopping there and asked for another battle
    -BATTLE: Tropius fell to Metal Claw, and Combusken, Ludicolo, and Pelipper fell to Psychic
    -May said she'd be going home to Littleroot and she'd be trying to complete her PokéDex
    -Noticed Aqua goons all around
    -Found their secret hideout
    -Couldn't get past the guards, though they told me about their hideout at Mt. Chimney
    -Flew to Mt. Chimney
    -Found Magma Hideout with the Magma Emblem
    -Traveled deeper and deeper into the Hideout and learned about their plans
    -Tried to stop Maxie from waking Groudon, but was too late
    -Groudon disappeared, and Maxie battled me
    -BATTLE: Mightyena fell to Metal Claw easily, Camerupt fainted after Psychic, and so did his Crobat
    -Maxie ran away and I couldn't follow him well enough and lost him
    -Headed back to the Aqua Hideout and found out that Archie had gone to Slateport for something
    -Flew to Slateport and witnessed Archie steal Capt. Stern's submarine
    -Returned to the Aqua Hideout
    -Entered and rediscovered my hatred of teleporters
    -Found the stolen sub, but was too late to stop it

    I would've liked to get to Mossdeep City and battle the Gym Leader, but I when I got caught up in this Magma/Aqua mess, it took too much time. I'll hit Mossdeep tomorrow.


    And once again, I'm very sorry, dragon0fangz. I didn't mean to offend you or discourage you.
