Final Update (#2) on Platinum.

  • Arrived in Celestic Town and beat Cyrus, then got Surf from the old lady. Taught it to a Psyduck HM Slave.
  • Surfed to the Fuego Ironworks and got the Flamethrower TM, which Nagini is going to use for the next two gyms.
  • After some more training on the water routes, I headed to Canalave City.
  • Beat Malfoy easily, then took on the gym after getting Strength from Riley.
  • Byron was so easy with Earthquake and Flamethrower.
  • After some plot stuff, I beat Saturn and Mars at the first two lakes, then trudged through the snow to Snowpoint City.
  • Candice was pretty easy as well thanks to Flamethrower.
  • Went and got the Ice Beam TM for later, then went to Veilstone City.
  • Beat Cyrus at his Headquarters and then beat him in the Distortion World as well.
  • Killed Giratina with 2 Ice Beam attacks, then went back to the real world.
  • Made my way to Sunyshore City, where I hung on against Volkner (paralysis was annoying) and beat him with Earthquake.
  • Got the Waterfall HM and went through Victory Road to the Pokemon League.
  • Beat Malfoy for the final time, then used Rare Candies and some grinding to get Nagini to L98.
  • Took on the Elite Four:
  • Aaron was OHKOed by 3 Ice Beams, 1 Thunder and 1 Earthquake.
  • Bertha was OHKOed by 1 Return and 4 Ice Beams, the damage only coming from Sandstorm.
  • Flint was OHKOed by 5 Earthquakes, Nagini was only hit by a crit Flare Blitz from Infernape.
  • Lucian was a bit more difficult since Alakazam hot with Focus Blast, Espeon with Psychic, and Bronzong with a +1 Psychic. 5 Returns and 1 Thunder was all Nagini needed though.
  • Finally it was time for Cynthia. She wasn't too hard. Here's the video and play-by-play of the fight:
