Update #6:

I won't go through all the details like with the last updates; we all know how the storyline goes...

Anyway, I managed to beat all the Gymleaders in Kanto (Blue was quite a challenge) and challenged the E4 again. I knew they would be harder now, but could not remember their teams and levels. I failed the first few times, but after grinding my while team to level 65 and getting some new moves, I managed to beat Lance.

So, final challenge is Red. And this turns out to be the biggest indeed. Again, I have to grind, because I fail miserably thrice (bloody Lapras). But, when everybody is trained to level 70+, I challenged Red for the last time.

- Pikachu is easy, one earthquake from NICOLE is enough.
- Lapras faints after being poisoned by NICOLE and electrocuted by CHLOE.
- Venusaur and ANN dance around for a bit, throwing Sleep Powders, Dragon Dances, Sludge Bombs and Full Restores around, but then ANN wins with Wing Attack.
- Snorlax is always a drag. ANN does quite some damage, but then faints to Blizzard. OLIVIA sets up Reflect, but then faints to Blizzsrd. LARA sets up a Stealth Rock against Snorlax and then faints to Blizzard. NICOLE's Superpower hits, but she then faints to Blizzard. MICKEY manages to Sword Dance/Return and wins.
- Blastoise gets hurt a bit by Stealth Rock and ko's MICKEY. CLOE survives a Focus Blast and gets to hit Discharge twice in a row due to paralysis and ko's Blastoise.
- Charizard is at 1/2 HP when he enters due to Stealth Rock. I heal CHLOE, he uses Air Slash. We are now both down to our last Pokemon, with ~1/2HP left. He is faster and uses Flare Blitz, leaving me with 15 hitpoints, hurting himself as well. CHLOE finishes it with Surf.

I finished the game at 63h33m.

“You know,” said Arthur, “it’s at times like this, when I’m trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I’d listened to what my mother told me when I was young.”
“Why, what did she tell you?”
“I don’t know, I didn’t listen.”
