well, since it'll hang around, and since I did finish almost everything in this one except Ghetsis before the 5th (to think, I might have managed to finish before midnight if only the council of our area hadn't blocked the whole bike path to widen it be a meter for some reason and the detour around taking 10-15 minutes more)

taught bulldoze to Thyme

16 chargestone cave klink 26 > 4-15 mawile (Melt

lucky egg get

the concept of Thyme, who as a pupitar doesn't have feet, using stomp, sure is a thing

Trainer's drillbur in chargestone lived Patter's Bug Buzz with 1hp and ohko'd him witha +1 attack rock slide
swapped to Pubby and KOd it
Idiot fool that I am, I forgot to consider that it might have a rock move, which is stupid considering how much I've been paying attention to that sort of thing so far

Maybe we'll go all the way to Alder at some point



Team:

Spoiler:

Pubby the impish carracosta. Slow as all getout, but strong enough offences and very good defences



Sage the adamant crustle. Shrugs off attacks like they're nothing. Wish he'd had Shell Armor instead of sturdy, that would have been more useful. Carried his Night Slash egg move all the way



Pi the mild mothim. A bit fragile, but a very good special attacker. Came a long way from a burmy that only had Protect.



(name is pronounced like it was taken from a 'pi-pi-pi' sound, rather than like the maths 'Pi')

Thyme the rash tyranitar. Replaced Roge on the team. Carried Stomp and Dark Pulse all the way from hatching. Stomp is surprisingly handy, with its high flinch chance.



Zipps the naive zebstrika. Replaced Speedy and kind of became the leader in spirit of the team. Made excellent use of her Double Kick egg move. Sturdy in the face of a lot of elements that other party members wouldn't be able to take.



Rustly the sassy serperior. Replaced Patter on the team, and gave us some much needed type variation. Iron Tail is an okay egg move, low accuracy is a bit of a pain... which at the least is a bit mitigated by Coil.






RiP:
Spoiler:


Fell to: Failed KO via low damage roll on a pokemon using Bide


Fell to: Cheren's Dewott getting a critical Razor Shell after leaving Dewott with a sliver of HP. He still got the KO on Dewott in the end, though, because Poison Point activated


Fell to: Me being an idiot and forgetting to consider one single time that a trainer's drillbur probably had a rock move


additional:
*insert sound of me absolutely losing it*


3 shiny wild ghosts across two egglockes what is going on

What I learned from this is: a ridiculous amount of things in this region have a rock move and/or bide

Anyway, it's been fun, thanks for making this!
(I will say it was incredibly hard to get the gen4 files to function, and I needed to do different things for them and I'm still not fully sure how I got them to work in the end because it was different between platinum and soul silver (was it just like this for me? I don't know. It was really weird). I did the White run because I got it working easy as anything, a full day before the others, and I figured I'd just stick with it)

And now you know what I do when I get bored~
(read: have far too much fun with overlay layers)

forgot to post after winona, but i had no losses. came dangerously close, though. prior to getting to her though, i hatched a torchic which is a huge blessing bc it's my favorite starter lol so naturally i replaced kiara with her. i just beat tate and liza last night, very easily at that. was kind of surprised, but i think i just need to have more faith in my team. evolved poliwhirl after i beat them too. :) will be streaming the seafloor cavern and stuff tonight too!
