Finally allowed to play this again after finishing a few assignments.

I'm still managing to take a lot of time with this game, I don't think I've ever completed something so patiently.

Time: 14:32 Badges: 4 Pokedex: 46

Since the last time I updated I have beaten Erika, Giovanni x2, Gary x2 and about a million rocket grunts.

Team as of now - Dugtrio Lv.41, Butterfree Lv.38, Raichu Lv.36, Venusaur Lv.33, Pidgeotto Lv.31, Primeape Lv.28.

It has started to become a big struggle to keep Primeape on the team, it took a while to get him to evolve. I'm considering dropping him even though I wanted to complete it with my favourites, but I'll check to see if he learn any good moves soon first. As before, I'm still planning to replace Dugtrio with one of my favourites which I'm now thinking of it being Lapras instead of my originally planned Dragonite. Both would be pretty time consuming to train, but at least Lapras knows surf. I did consider Jynx for a very quick period before I realised obviously it has to be nicknamed on this due to in-game trades.

Potential departures - Dugtrio, Primeape.
Potential replacements - Lapras, Dratini (Dragonite), Seadra (I have one in the daycare so there's a chance it might be decently levelled and it can learn surf), Rhydon, Growlithe (Arcanine), Haunter (Gengar).

I just realised Dragonite can surf which surprised me so I guess that wipes out most reasoning for not picking Dragonite.

Time to get back to the main point of the journey and collect some gym badges.

    • I won the Rainbow Badge from Erika, so with that I can teach Duduo Fly so I can go back to Viridian City...
    • ...but before I did that I went to pick up the Super Rod
    • Then I flew back to Viridian so I can catch a Lvl 30 Poliwag at the League Badge Reception Gates and then train it to a Poliwhirl
    • Passed Cycling Road to Fushsia, went to get Surf and Strength
    • Thought about it, so I decided to teach (Arle) Mew Surf and (Combo) Poliwhirl Strength...that was until I had the brilliant ide of trying to catch a Dratini instead
    • Managed not only catch one, but a Dragonair instead (never caught any of the line in my original Yellow so that was a personal achievement for me)
    • Substituted Combo for Dragonair, now nicknamed Kiryu to train
    • Currently on Route 15 training for Koga.

    And that's pretty much the gist of it.

      Still playing Red... so now I battled all trainers on all mainland routes, and I'm ready to go to the sea. There's only one loose end remaining, one last encounter with Team Rocket... the Sylph Co.

      So, there I went. And I was thorough: I fought every single Team Rocket member I could get to before obtaining the Card Key, got the Card Key, and then started from the bottom again, this time opening all doors and fighting everyone. By the time I got to Giovanni, my Pokémon were 5 levels behind his, but I had type superiority on my side, so down he went, and I got the Master Ball.

      Nothing special to say about Sabrina and her gym, if not the fact that I thought Parasect would be of more use that it ended up being. Leech Life, the move that suddenly stopped sucking after Parasect had evolved now started sucking again. So I ended up besting Sabrina with Electabuzz and Dewgong.

      The Fighting Dojo was obliterated using Hypno and, mostly, Charizard with Fly. By this point, Charizard was, once again, lagging behind all other members of my team, so it was a way to get it up to speed.

      Still hungry for blood, I went to Fuschia and rode my Dewgong to Seafoam Islands, once again fighting each and every trainer I could find, and swimming in zigzags to make sure I missed nobody. I got through the Seafoam Islands in a couple of minutes, only stopping to catch Artikuno.

      After arriving to Cinnabar Island, I immediately revived Kabuto and Aerodactyl (and boxed them), and then explored the Pokémon Mansion, catching as many Pokémon as I could (including Weezing, so that's cool) . After that, I suddenly changed my mind about battling Blaine for the time being and flew to Cerulean. Going east, I entered the Power Plant and caught several Pokémon, including Zapdos.

      And now, Blaine. I didn't use the machines to skip battles, but instead powered through using Golem, Dewgong, and, due to his resistance to fire, Charizard. Blaine went down in a couple of Surf moves by my Dewgong.

      I went back to Viridian city the hard way: surfing north (and wiping out everyone, once again) . Giovanni went down without any troubles (except for the part where he tried to give me the TM, once again, my bag was full) . So I went west, battled Blue, crossed the Victory Road (and captured Moltres while I was there) and ultimately found myself at Pokémon league.

      Here I was, at Plateau Indigo. I sold all my nuggets, bought a ton of Hyper Potions (I had to return to Cinnabar Island for those ) , Revives and Full Heals. Going in, I was afraid of being at a disadvantage, since my Pokémon were all around level 45, and Charizard and Dewgong weren't of a high enough level to know the Fire-type move and the Ice-type move I usually rely on (Flamethrower and Ice Beam). I decided, just in case, to teach them less accurate moves (Fire Blast and Blizzard) instead, since I already had the TMs. Anyway, despite my apprehensions, I went in and... won! The moves I thought would not work actually did, and did so well. Dewgong in particular CRUSHED Lance's dragons with Blizzard, it helped that Dragonite kept spamming Agility for no reason instead of, you know, attacking.

      So I was back home, and had one more thing left to do: go to Cerulean Cave and catch Mewtwo. But this time, I decided to make it interesting: I decided to not use my Master Ball. After a few run-ins with Electrodes that kept exploding, I thought the Master Ball would be better spent on them.

      Anyway, Mewtwo. My Hypno went in first, and used Flash several times. After Mewtwo KOing it with Swift, I realized that Mewtwo knowing Swift would be a problem . But, nevertheless, I revived Hypno and kept using Flash until it no longer had effect. And then I switched to Dewgong and started spamming Blizzard. When the PPs ran out, I used Elixers and Ethers; when Mewtwo used Swift three times (or two, and landed a critical hit) I just switched to a more resistant Golem, revived and full healed Dewgong and put it back on. After a few minutes, it finally happened: Mewtwo was frozen solid! Then I just started attacking it with Golem's Strength, and then switched to Dewgong to lower its HPs some more with Headbutt. It was all smooth sailing, until Dewgong landed a critical hit... but, thankfully, the hit left just one pixel on Mewtwo's health bar. I caught it with an Ultra Ball!

      So, there it is. I finished Red, and the only thing remaining now is completing the Pokédex, but I can't do it without completing the other two versions first. I think I'll share my progress with the Yellow version, and play that somewhat conservatively (despite my earlier shenannigans, see my previous post) , but Blue... I think I'll just have fun, trade the Pokémon from my team in Blue to a completed game, teach them the more destructive moves, grossly level them up etc etc, before sending them back. I'll break that game :D .

      Anyway, the game is finished.

      Did quite a bit today, including...

      Clearing out the route West of Lavender Town, and catching a Vulpix on that route.
      Hitting up Celadon City, stealing the Eevee, evolving it into a Jolteon, buying a Lemonade and giving it to the guard so that opened up Saffron City and all connecting routes.
      Thought momentarily about buying enough coins for a Dratini from the Game Corner, until I calculated the cost.
      Went all the way back to Pallet Town through Diglett Cave and started going back through towns/cities/routes and collecting any items I may have missed.
      Collected the Old Amber for eventual revival/6th team member addition when I finally get to Cinnabar Island.
      Spent the rest of the day grinding next to Celadon City in preparation for taking on Erika and then the Team Rocket Hideout. Still not done grinding, so it will take a while. No team update this time.

      Not too much happened in today's playthrough. I first went around several routes and Cyclying Road to battle several trainers and then trained Zuko and Mable a bit before going against Koga. I waited until Zuko learned flamethrower, which made Koga's battle fairly easily. I then went to the Safari Zone so that I can get Surf for Undyne.

      I want to try training my Pokemon around the level 40 to 45 range before I deal with Sliph Co and Sabrina's Gym. Can't remember how I defeated her on Yellow all those years ago, haha.

      Beat Brock and made my way to Mt. Moon to pick up Clefairy. Although, I had to do Mt. Moon over again because I found out there's actually two Moon Stones there and I need two Moon Stones so that was pretty sweet. Also, I forgot to pick up Mega Punch, which Clefairy + Mega Punch is an awesome combo. Clefairy was a lot easier to find than Nidoran let me tell you that.

      Cerulean City! Mew Glitch! That was interesting took me awhile to catch an Abra since Sing rarely works. -______-; Beat Ollie, my rival, piece of cake. Went to Bill, fought all the trainers along the way. Still deciding who I want on my team but right now I'm satisfied so I don't know if I'll add more teammates or not. Decided not to evolve Horus because he turns ground and we're facing a water gym...

      About to face Misty so cheers to that.

      My events of yesterday involved me removing Team Rocket from Silph Co. After I got the Card Key on 5F, I worked my way through going floor by floor. Course I did remember about the healing area being on 9F. I of course battled Revan again and got Lapras on 7F. Garland, Kefka, Gabranth, and Cid all gained levels while I was going though. After I defated Giovanni again, I got the Master Ball.

      After I finished up my business there, there was other things I had to take care of Saffron. One thing I did was give the Poke Doll, that I bought in Celadon, to Copycat. My next objective is to go and battle Sabrina for my sixth badge. I have seen 105 Pokemon and owned 35.

        Pokemon Mansion surprisingly wasn't as tedious as I thought. After a while of wandering around and killing wilds along the way, I finally found the Secret Key. Before going to Blaine's Gym, however, I wanted to grind my other Pokemon first. Charles finally learned Flamethrower! So long, Ember! Your low Base Power will not be missed! I also gave Isabella the Blizzard TM (after cloning it with Missingno., of course) so she can hit harder. However, I didn't teach it to Chelsea, since she hits hard enough, and I prefer Ice Beam's extra PP in her case.

        Speaking of Chelsea, she may as well have worn janitor's clothing, because she mopped the floor with the Gym! In fact, discounting Quick Attacks from trainers' Vulpix and Ninetales, she didn't even get touched! Volcano Badge obtained very easily! Not at all surprising, since you need Surf (aka the best counter to Blaine) to even reach Cinnabar Island! I decided to put the Fire Blast TM in the PC and not teach it to Charles. The firepower (pun intended) is tempting, but Charles's moveset is already full.

        I'm still grinding everyone else, so I'll leave the Power Plant, Zapdos, and Viridian Gym for next time.

        Current team:
        Nikola the Raichu (Lv. 44)
        Isabella the Nidoqueen (Lv. 44)
        Eric the Snorlax (Lv. 44)
        Chelsea the Vaporeon (Lv. 46)
        Rafflesia the Vileplume (Lv. 44)
        Charles the Charizard (Lv. 46)

        Today's playthrough I went through Sliph Co, aka GIOVANNI'S WILD RIDE PT. 2, WARP TELEPORTERS EDITION. I first went through all ten/eleven floors to battle against the Team Rocket grunts and Scientists, switching off between Undyne and Dash. I then went through the warps so I can find Blue...which took a while for me because I first didn't realize the card key was in one particular floor until much later and I had to check a walkthrough that you go through one of 3rd floor's warps in order to reach your rival, haha. Nonetheless, I got both Blue and then Giovanni taken care of.

        Besides that, before I left Fushia City I gave the warden his golden teeth and got Strength. I also did some hardcore training for Pikachu by battling against all the swimmers in the water routes. I'm thinking of going against the Fighting Dojo and Sabrina next time.

        My events of yesterday started with me taking on Sabrina at the Saffron City Gym. The battle was interesting, despite the fact that Garland got hit with paralysis. After I defeated her, I flew back to Pallet Town. While I was there, I finally picked up the Town Map, but I did not need it. I then headed south to Cinnabar Island.

        When I reached Cinnabar Island, I got the Helix Fossil and the Old Amber revived. One of the two Pokemon became the fifth member of my team. I then flew back to Viridian City to activate a certain glitch. When I did the glitch, I cloned the following items: the Master Ball, Moon Stone, Nugget, and Rare Candy. After doing all the cloning, I then headed to the Power Plant.

        While I was at the Power Plant, I caught more Pokemon, one of being Zapdos. I then flew to Fuchsia, where I headed south and west to reach the Seafoam Islands. While I was at Seafoam Islands, I caught more Pokemon, one of them being Articuno. I then headed back to Cinnabar Island.

        When I got back to Cinnabar Island, I headed to the Pokemon Mansion. While I was there, one of the Pokemon I caught was the final member of my team. After making my way through there, it was time to head to the gym and battle Blaine. The battle against Blaine was easy. I then flew back to Viridian for my final gym battle.

        When it came to my gym battle against Giovanni, I used all but one of my team against him. My next objective is to head to Victory Road and Indigo Plateau. Course I still have not visited Routes 12-15 yet, so maybe I will deal with those routes first. I have seen 123 Pokemon and own 57.

        (note: The current levels of my team members are from using a lot of Rare Candy)

        So I went against the Fighting Dojo and Sabrina's gym. The Fighting Dojo I was able to go through very easily with Mable. As for Sabrina, I was actually surprised Bell was able to finish off her lv 50 Alakazam with Drill Peck in one hit, lol.

        I then decided to go through the Pokemon Manison to get the Secret Key. I wanted to catch some Pokemon, but then when I wanted to use an Ultra Ball I got the message letting me know one of my boxes is full, lol. I didn't fell like going back to the Pokemon Center so I went through the Pokemon Manison. Not much problem saved for Raticate's Hyper Fang occassionally. I'll go to Blaine's gym next time. I also just noticed everyone but Mable are all now lv 46, haha.

          After taking a break from the game after defeating the elite 4 (or so I thought), I switched the game on so that I could attempt the mew glitch and found myself stood in front of Lance with Gary still to defeat, I corrected my mistake by defeating him again

              Now that I finished grinding, it was time to hit the Power Plant! After catching and boxing new Pokemon for Pokedex entries, as well as picking up every item that wasn't a Voltorb or Electrode, I finally made my way to Zapdos. It took a few more Balls than Articuno, but Zapdos was caught! Then I reset the game so I could use a cloned Master Ball to catch it again. Straight to the box you go! Have fun with Articuno and Mew!

              Now, it was time to head to Viridian City Gym. One thing I found hilarious was that the Gym guy had no idea who the Gym Leader was, yet Giovanni's name is on the statues! I decided to solo the gym with Charles, since he beat a Gym as a Charmander and a Charmeleon, but not yet as a Charizard. The trainers' Pokemon were all 2HKOed or OHKOed, and Charles got three levels from all the EXP. Now for the final showdown with Giovanni! His first four Pokemon all went down easily enough, but Rhydon made me worry a little, since it had a higher level than Charles and knew Horn Drill. Worse, Dig just barely failed to 2HKO! After Dig brought Rhydon to just a sliver of HP, the Horn Drill came....

              ...But it missed! Charles had no plans on fainting today! After one Flamethrower to remove that final sliver of HP, Rhydon finally went down, and the Earth Badge (and the Fissure TM I doubt I'll ever use) is ours! Eight badges! Now it's off to Indigo Plateau, as soon as I'm done grinding the rest of my team, beat down Blue for the second to last time, and go through Victory Road! All of this and more next time on Dragon Ba*shot*

              Current team:
              Nikola the Raichu (Lv. 48)
              Isabella the Nidoqueen (Lv. 48)

                So, Yellow version. The playthrough continued in a rather mundane way: I went to SS Anne, destroyed Lt Surge with Machamp with Dig. With the Saffron gates opened, I went directly to Celadon and destroyed Erika using Aerodactyl and Exeggutor...

                Oh, yes, instead of waiting for Shellder and Exeggcute to learn good moves before evolving them, I ended up teaching them Ice Beam and Psychic with TMs and evolved them. Good stats and all.

                Anyway, after this, I started battling every single trainer on the map... and then just went and battled everyone in the sea. I even caught Articuno in Seafoam Islands... with two thirds of my team being weak to Ice, and one being really bad stat-wise (Pikachu, no surprise) , I had to soft reset a dozen of times...

                Anyway, atfer Seafoam Islands, I just kept going left and ended up completing the Pokémon Mansion. After this, I just decided to finish all quests and then get the remaining three badges by flying from Gym to Gym to Gym with no quests in between.

                So to Sylph Co I went and, just like in Red, I went from floor to floor and defeated every single Team Rocket member. Finished off Jessie and James, foiled Giovanni's plan, got the Master Ball. After that I went to the former Gym and got myself a Hitmonchan, and then immediately flew to Lavender Town, bought repels and went north, to the Power Plant. Zapdos was much easier to catch than Articuno, I could send out Exeggutor to send it to sleep without much worries.

                Now that I've done pretty much everything I wanted to do, I did Saffron Gym, Cinnabar Gym and Viridian Gym uninterrupted, in a row, with only breaks to heal my team.

                Nothing special to say about the Victory Road and the Pokémon League... well, except this:
                • I have no idea how, but I managed to catch Moltres without putting it to sleep.
                • The one trainer I did't do well against was Lorelei. My team was horrible against Ice-Types, Machamp was my savior.
                • Pikachu managed to not be completely and utterly useless when it managed to use Flash six times in a row while facing Dragonite before getting OHKOed, so that Cloyster could finish it off without receiving one single hit.

                Once again, I caught Mewtwo without a Master Ball. Cloyster managed to freeze it solid with Ice Beam, and after having whittled down its HPs bit by bit, it only took two Ultra Balls. So, there, Yellow: done, on to Blue. Bye bye, yellow rat, you won't be missed.

                Before going against Blaine, I went to Celadon City so I can get the Rock Slide TM from the thirsty girl and teach it to Dash. I originally was going to use Undyne for Blaine's gym, but I decided to save her for Giovanni's gym. With Dash's moves being Rock Slide and Earthquake, Blaine's gym was easy.

                Next I wanted to get Zapdos and Articuno before going to the last gym. I let Charizard do some training in the Power Plant and Hamilton in Seaform Islands. When trying to catch Zapdos it took me a few resets as I kept accidentally killing it. Articuno, meanwhile, I didn't need to do a reset but I had to use several Ultra Balls to catch it.

                Oh, one funny incident in the Power Plant. My Charizard was in low health when it was going against an Electrode. I let it used Dig, thinking I'll be able make it faint first. Big Mistake. It outspeed Zuko and used Self-Destruct, and both Pokemon faint haha.

                Pretty much Giovanni, Victory Road, and Elite 4 are the only things left to do. Close to the end!

                    Blue was easy, as expected. I let each of my Pokemon take out one of each of Blue's Pokemon. I'll probably repeat this match-up for the final battle. Anyway, smell ya later, Blue! I walked past the guards in Route 23 while listening to the awesome music that plays there. At last, we have reached Victory Road!

                    Maybe it's because I'm now used to Victory Roads of later games, but this was so disappointingly easy. All the trainers were pushovers, all of the wild Pokemon gave out too little EXP, and besides the Moltres battle (I caught it, of course. Yay, full Bird Trio set complete!), nothing too interesting happened. After leaving Victory Road, I'm now at Indigo Plateau!

                    Once there, I've decided to use Rare Candies on my team to raise their levels to match that of Lorelei's Pokemon. After beating each member of the Elite 4, I'll use Rare Candies to be on par with the next member, so that I'm not underleveled (or overleveled) for anyone. I'll take them on later today, so see you all next time!

                    Current team:
                    Nikola the Raichu (Lv. 56)
                    Isabella the Nidoqueen (Lv. 56)

                    Chelsea the Vaporeon (Lv. 57) (I accidentally used an extra Rare Candy on her. Whoops!)
                    Rafflesia the Vileplume (Lv. 56)

                    So, I decided to not update yesterday and wait until I get through the rest of the game. Let's do this.

                    I went to the last gym with Undyne dominating Giovanni and the other trainers. Luckily Giovanni's wild ride isn't confusing to figure out, haha. Shortly after, bumped onto Blue and defeated him with not much trouble.

                    Next I went through Victory Road, got Moltres (had to chuck several pokeballs, otherwise everything went fine) and trained my Pokemon a few levels first before going against the Elite 4. I gave Hamilton some Rare Candies since I saved several of them and he could use the extra boost. Lorlei and Bruno I was abe to get through easily while Agatha I had a hard time with her Gengar even though I have Mable. Confuse Ray and Dream Eater, omg why. ;_; I was able to defeat her, though, and then didn't have a hard time with Lance thanks to Undyne.

                    There's then Blue. So I wasn't sure which Pokemon he would sent out first, so I went with Dash while he choose Sandslash. Of course, Sandslash was able to take down Dash one hit with Earthquake, woops. The only other time one of my Pokemon fainted was when I had Zuko against Magneton so I can use Dig, but that plan kinda backfired. Otherwise, got through the rest of his Pokemon fine and became Champion, woo.

                    One last thing before I got done with pretty much everything- Mewtwo. Took a bit of walking around the Sea Cavern until I was able to reach him. I mostly used Zuko's Flamethrower to chip Mewtwo's HP away, but he often uses Recover, lol. Once I got Mewtwo's HP very low, I used my Ultra Ball and caught him with one try.

                    And I think that's it! This has been a blast reliving this game again after several years. Looking forward to transferring my Pokemon to Sun/Moon.

                    HALL OF FAME

                      Lorelei's Pokemon were bulkier than expected, but overall was no problem. Nikola zapped Dewgong into oblivion, then I switched out to Raff to deal with Cloyster and Slowbro. Despite the type disadvantage, Raff took both down with Petal Dance (Slowbro survived, but didn't attack Raff, the idiot) like a boss. Charles Slashed Jynx in one shot, and it was back to Nikola to deal with Lapras. When Thunderbolt failed to OHKO and Lapras retaliated with Blizzard, I got worried for a nanosecond. Then I remembered that Nikola would not fall so easily, and sure enough, he tanked Blizzard with plenty of HP to spare and brought it down with another Thunderbolt. Lorelei defeated!

                      Bruno was overall very easy. Isabella missed her first Blizzard against his first Onix, but took very little damage in return. Take two, and Onix is sent back to the Ice Age with Blizzard hitting this time (and a crit to boot, damn!). Both Hitmons fell to a single Flamethrower, courtesy of Charles. Onix #2 was demolished by Chelsea's Surf. Finally, the Machamp! Raff put it to sleep with a Sleep Powder, then got the 2HKO with Petal Dance! Bruno defeated!

                      Agatha was...interesting, to say the least. I had Eric set up an Amnesia on her first Gengar after its Hypnosis missed, and then...it switched out? The AI can do that? Anyway, Golbat removed the Amnesia boost with Haze while taking little damage from unboosted Surf, then hit Eric with Confuse Ray. Thankfully, Eric didn't hit himself, and instead hit the Golbat with a Body Slam. Annoying bat down. The first Gengar came back, and after failing to hit with Dream Eater (silly AI), Eric got his Amnesia boosts. One weak Night Shade later, and Eric drowned the Ghost with Surf. I had Isabella deal with Agatha's Haunter and Arbok. Both died to an Earthquake. Finally, it was Eric vs the final Gengar. As Eric used Amnesia, Gengar used Toxic to try and wear him down. Fool, Eric is like the King of Stall! Thus, the stall war began, as Gengar tried to cripple Eric with Confuse Ray while Eric boosted his Special to max and Rested off the damage (I kept the Poke Flute on me so Gengar couldn't use Dream Eater). Finally, Gengar was obliterated by Eric's +6 Surf! Agatha defeated!

                      Now to slay some dragons (and some not-dragons, too)! Nikola fried Gyarados to a crisp. Isabella turned Dragonair #1 into an ice sculpture. Dragonair #2 actually survived Charles's Slash and fired a Hyper Beam at him. I didn't do much damage, and Charles roasted what was left of Dragonair's HP with a Flamethrower. I decided Chelsea would be the one to finish off Lance's remaining team. Aerodactyl missed a Supersonic, then got blasted by Chelsea's Hydro Pump. At last came Lance's final Pokemon, his fearsome Dragonite! With it's tremendous power and awesome bulk, surely it would pose a great...oh wait, Ice Beam to the face! Lance defeated!

                      (As I said in my last post, I kept feeding my Pokemon Rare Candies in between battles so they would be on par with the next trainer.)

                      After mashing A to skip whatever Blue had to say, it was time for the final battle! Nikola struck down his Pidgeot with a Thunderbolt so great, it would make even Thor and Zeus jealous! After that, it was a battle of brawn vs brains, as Eric faced off against Alakazam! Poor Akakazam had to try in vain to protect itself with Reflect as Eric crushed it with his Body Slam. I said in vain, because Eric decided to break through that pitiful Reflect with a Critical Hit! Ouch! Next came Rhydon, as I sent out Isabella to counter it. Rhydon should have brought a very thick coat, because Isabella's crit Blizzard was beyond overkill to it! Following that, it was a battle of dogs (cats? beasts?) as Arcanine ferociously stared at Chelsea. Unfortunately for Arcanine, its bark absolutely pales in comparison to Chelsea's bite (not the move Bite, of course)! Poor puppy probably wished it had invested in swimming lessons after the Surf that had ended it. For the penultimate round, it was the fierce fire-breathing not-Dragon Charles, versus...a tree with eggs? Yeah, that round didn't last very long. As Blue withdrew the charred remains of his Exeggutor, he sent out his starter Blastoise, hoping to turn this match around. Time for a certain flower to devour her newest victim! First, Raff put it to sleep. Then, she begins her dance of death. Unfortunately, Blastoise wakes up in the middle of Raff's dance and prepares a mighty Blizzard to end this destructive flower. Unfortunately for Blastoise, Raff carves through its puny shell before it could even move, and utterly destroys the poor tortoise! At last, Blue was defeated!

                      After the battle, Oak shows up and says something (I was too busy mashing A). After all the textboxes, we were finally ready to induct these six badasses to the Hall of Fame! We are the Champions, my friends! And we'll keep on fighting to the end! We are the Champions, we are the Champions! No time for losers, 'cause we are the Champions...of the Wooooooorld! Okay, I'll stop now.

                      I decided to stop here. I'll take on Mewtwo and complete the Pokedex at my own leisure. This was a fun playthrough, as well as a nice trip down memory lane. Overall, despite the glitches, early installment weirdness, and horrible sprites, I had fun with this game. Now where's Silver on VC? To anyone who bothered reading my crappy posts and following my adventure, thank you. See you all another time!

                      Final team:
                      Nikola the Raichu (Lv. 65)
                      Isabella the Nidoqueen (Lv. 65)
                      Eric the Snorlax (Lv. 65)
                      Chelsea the Vaporeon (Lv. 65)
                      Rafflesia the Vileplume (Lv. 65)
                      Charles the Charizard (Lv. 65)

                          Loaded up the game as Ash, taking Ranvier the Pikachu under his wing just in time to get in the way of Gary and that Eevee which Ash totally didn't want at all. Making his way through the Kanto region he picked up a few good companions to tell spooky stories with in Viridian Forest with Metro the Nidoking, Future the Charmeleon, Lauryn the Butterfree and Mew the Mew. He had even beaten 2 gym leaders so far! He had heard the horror stories about Misty, the failed runs and the continuous stream of tears from defeated trainers that filled up her pool. Ash had already threatened to release Lauryn if she missed the Sleep Powder on Starmie but Starmie thought it was a Metapod for the whole match. Everyone wins. With 2 badges in hand and a near-full team of lv20somethings, Ash set his sights onto his 3rd badge at Fuschia City...wait?
