Tim versus Sinnoh Chapter 4

Before the continuation of my journey, I met another bloke by the name of Tim (Me) from Johto, we traded across some POKeMON and he helped me acquire GRAVELER's evolution. I also showed me many POKeMON of Johto. After we sorted out all our POKeMON's final evolutions, he gifted me with an EEVEE, a elusive and hard to find POKeMON from a distant land of Kanto. I knew what to do.

I rushed to the warehouse where many Veilstone residents had told me that a Hidden Machine was in a warehouse at the norther-western corner of the town. I rushed there and bumped into a Dawn once more. She was being confronted by a couple of Galactic Grunts. I intercepted the altercation when Dawn had told me she had lost her POKeDEX... Idiot... So I double battled with her, showing off my skills we battled put and end to the grunts thievery. Once I returned her POKeDEX, she bolted. I entered the ware house and picked up the HM that would get me where I need to go much faster. My destination? Eterna Forest.

I quickly taught the HM's skill to my STARAVIA and we flew together back to Eterna City. I rushed to the entrance of the forest and found a mossy stone, I put an EXP Share on my EEVEE and battled a POKeMON. He leveled up 5 times. I then went to the stone and touched. An all consuming light engulfed my EEVEE, he soon evolved into the legendary and mysterious LEAFEON.

Later, I left the forest and ran some errands. Including showing Tim his EEVEE's mystical transformation. With his POKeDEX updated, he returned to Johto.

As I headed south from Veilstone, I wandered through the route below Veilstone and battled some trainers, at the very end of the road. My BUDEW finally evolved into a ROSELIA. Now to find a shiny stone. As I headed to the 3 way intersection between Pastoria and a mysterious city to the east... I entered a Cafe' and battled everyone inside, gaining some valuable experience. Following that I battled all the trainers between the Cafe' and Pastoria. Acquiring some important TM and Items on the way. As I entered Pastoria it was dusk. I explored by speaking with all the locals and visiting some shops. I noticed another Galactic employee mumbling to himself. I would see what he was up to later, after battling the towns Gym Leader

When one of the houses I entered turned out to be a Move Tutor, I clapped with excitement and handed over 3 heart scales and taught some moves to my POKeMON. The most helpful being Giga Drain for ROSELIA. When I left I headed to the Gym and entered, solving the puzzle of the Gym and beating the CGTs, I confronted Wake.

An interesting battle ensued when his first POKeMON was GYARADOS. I had to use FLOATZEL to weaken him and a vulnerable ROSELIA to finish him.

He then sent his FLOATZEL and ROSELIA OHKO'd him with one Giga Drain and the same happened to his third POKeMON whom I can't seem to remember right now.

After my victory, the Leader, Crasher Wake, bestowed to me the Fen Badge and a Brine TM. Following that I left the Gym and saved the game in the POKeCENTER. Tomorrow I will explore the Great Marsh and then head west...

      So um, yeah, I breezed through Johto without even updating ;w;"

      Basically, here's a recap how each gym turned out:

      Spoiler:
      Gym 4: Morty died to Pierce

      Gym 5: Chuck died to Pierce and Alexis and Digit evolved somewhere in the Lighthouse.

      Gym 6: Caught a Staryu (Eliz), evolved into a Starmie and beat Jasmine with Eliz, Cindy and Digit

      Gym 7: Tiffany and Alexis evolved, beat Pryce with Tiffany, Cindy and Alexis.

      Gym 8: Beat Clair with basically everything on my team. Tiffany beat Gyarados, had a huge stall war with the Dragonair and against Kingdra, I also did a stallwar until she used a Hyper Potion, leaving an opening to Tiffany getting a Charge up, which allowed her to tank Hydro Pumps and then eventually KO her.

      Elite Four Will: Evolved Alexis before hand, set up Stealth Rock with Digit, took down the better of the Xatu with Tiffany. Since the weaker one U-Turned out when it was on low HP, it died to Stealth Rock as it was sent out. Cindy beat Exeggutor and Jynx while Alexis beat Slowbro.

      Elite Four Koga: Set up Stealth Rock with Digit, KO'd Forretress, Venonat and Ariados with Cindy. In came Muk, in which I forgot to grab EQ from the Victory Road, so he was really hard to take down (didn't Dig fearing a Minimize set up). So I did a huge stall war with Alexis' Leech Seed to take that thing out. Crobat also wanted to be untouchable (Double Team), but after some Revive spamming, I was able to get in a Static hax with Tiffany and get in a Leech Seed, thus stalling it out.

      Elite Four Bruno: Pierce KO'd Hitmontop, Starmie KO'd Onix. Tiffany walled and Discharged Hitmonchan into submission. Hitmonlee and Machamp were difficult, but with some stalling, Tiffany took down the hitmon while I put Machamp into a situation where he needed to use a Full Restore and with Leech Seed, he was 2HKO'd by Cindy's Fire Blast.

      Elite Four Karen: Leech Seed stalled Umbreon and Gengar died to Cindy. Oh, not before it doing a switch into Houndoom and almost getting the Flash Fire boost. How did I avoid that? I was lucky enough to use a potion on the switch, as I was able to survive a Focus Blast, so I wanted to stall it out. I was then in a sticky situation, as I was Choice locked into Lava Plume, so I had to switch. Luckily, it didn't use Nasty Plot. If it did, I would've lost right there. But I was able to go into Tiffany as it Dark Pulsed then T-Waved it, allowing me to deal with it. I then beat Vileplume with Cindy and Murkrow with Tiffany.

      Champion Lance: Beat Gyarados with Tiffany then Lance's strongest Dragonite was sent into the field. I wanted to go into Digit to wall something (as I didn't know which Dragonite it was until it was actually sent out) and then go for a Stealth Rock, though that plan was foiled after I was hit with a Fire Blast. If I did manage to get a Stealth Rock up, it would've helped greatly, but that was not the case. I then got a stallwar going, trying to bait it into a Outrage. Luckily, it didn't take long until it did do that, so I switched into Tiffany and got the Static hax. I then beat Dragonite with Eliz's Blizzard. The same thing happened to the other two Dragonite as well. Charizard was tough, but I managed to catch a Rock Tomb while he was healing, so I was able to outspeed it later with Eliz and KO it with Surf. In comes Aerodactyl, the last of Lance's Pokemon. I then was able to bring it into the red zone and then did something incredibly risky. I healed up Cindy, sacrificing Starmie in the process, who would've outsped Aerodactyl because it was Paralyzed and take the victory. Cindy was sent out, it was the last of my Pokemon. A Lava Plume wouldn't KO at that range, I felt it. I clicked Fire Blast, risking that deadly 15% miss. I hit, got the kill as I grinned. Cindy was able to KO at least one Pokemon from each E4 member's team and it KO'd the Champion's last Pokemon, granting me the victory.

      Though, to your surprise, Cindy wasn't a Typhlosion, she was still a Quilava.


      ~ The Team ~


      Cindy - Female - Level 41 [Blaze] @ Choice Specs
      -Lava Plume, Fire Blast, Swift and Sunny Day

      Not gonna lie, I have no intentions on evolving Cindy. I've always wanted to have a little NFE team member and so I kept Cindy as a Quilava. Not to mention, she is much easier to draw as she is right now than in her evolved form. The reason for the Choice Specs + Sunny Day is because Choice Specs was a last minute addition and I knew I wasn't going to use Sunny Day. The one thing I will regret on not evolving Cindy is not because of Typhlosion's power, but because she can't learn Hyper Beam/Blast Burn/Solarbeam as a Quilava D:


      Pierce - Male - Level 38 [Keen Eye] @ Shell Bell
      -Aerial Ace, Fly, Assurance and Mirror Move

      It's usefulness is really declining. If it starts to be worse throughout Kanto, I will box it for Lugia (or search for a Skarmory). I mean, even Cindy does more work than Pierce and she's not even evolved! Oh well, Aerial Ace was very useful against the Double Teamers throughout the Elitte Four. I really wanted Mirror Move to hit Clair or Lance with that super effective dragon attack, but it never got the chance.


      Alexis - Female - Level 41 [Natural Cure] @ Miracle Seed
      -Petal Dance, Sludge Bomb, Shadow Ball and Leech Seed

      A huge makover in her moveset since evolving. She is the special wall of my team (even though she doesn't look like it). Leech Seed is my prime stalling move as, no matter how much you Double Team, I'll be sapping your health! She even walled Lance's Fire Blast too!


      Tiffany - Female - Level 40 [Static] @ Zoom Lens
      -Discharge, Thunder, Charge and Thunder Wave

      I bet I'm the only person who has Charge by Lance. I mean, it's so useful. There's so many specially offensive Pokemon in the game, so that Charge really helps on surviving some big blows (Clair's Kingdra and Karen's Houndoom where a victim ofCharge set up). Charge also has the use of allowing you to be a psuedo Calm Mind, so you can KO things that would normaly put them into the Full Restore zone. Static is my best friend, as it allows me to beat any Physical attacker with a couple revives and some patience.


      Digit - Male - Level 39 [Sand Veil] @ Quick Claw
      -Dig, Rock Tomb, Strength, Stealth Rock

      I traded in Stealth Rock from Platinum, if you were wondering. I got to go get Earthquake on this dude soon, now that I think about it. Anyways, this thing is such an amazing utility Pokemon. Dig for Leech Seed stalling, Rock Tomb to allow me to outspeed things with my more beefier Pokemon (Eliz, Alexis and Tiffany). Stealth Rock actually had more use than I thought it would, as that little damage is really helpful in boss battles, as remember, I tend to stall my way out until I get one free hit, then stall to get another opening to strike. So that little damage often leads me to a quicker KO.


      Eliz - Neutral - Level 40 [Illuminate] @ Wide Lens
      -Surf, Thunder, Blizzard and Recover

      Yup, Illuminate. I didn't really want to spend time trying to find a Staryu with Natural Cure to be honest. Illuminate is pretty cool though, as it allows quicker grinding and the wild encounter increase doesn't really bother me, as I use Repels when not wanting to battle wild Pokemon anyways.

      Anyways, on to Kanto so I can defeat Red and call this a sucessful run! That is, unless you guys think of any more challenges for me to do in this run (like beat all the Gym Leader rematches or get the Frontier Symbols?). So go on, give me ideas! :DD

      Tim versus Sinnoh Chapter 5

      The next day, I awoke early and headed to the Galactic Grunt who had been standing there since yesterday. When I approached him, he was talking about a new world and universe. He caught me in his peripheral and told me he was just thinking aloud, threatening me he told me not to follow him. Like a good boy, I did the exact opposite. I chased him all the way back to a lake to the South of Veilstone. When he stopped he finally battled me. I easily knocked out his GLAMEOW with my MEDITITE's Force Palm. Annoyed, he ran off. I then met Cynthia, asking me if I knew about the PSYDUCK herd, blocking the route next to the cafe. I nodded and she gave me a medicine that would cause their headaches to go away.

      I flew back to Pastoria and took the west exit through the Swamps to collect some easy experience when I cut my back to Solecian town, I biked from there to the root where the PSYDUCKs were. I gave them the medicine and they dispersed, Cynthia showed up again and gave me an Old Charm, belonging to her grandma and asked to deliver it to her in Celestic Town, I agreed to run the errand..

      As I traveled north from there, I beat a mysterious ninja trio. And continued on, catching some POKeMON I didn't have along the way.

      As I went further north a thick fog rolled in, making my way to Celestic Town, impassible. A rogue Black Belt informed me of a POKeMON technique called "Defog". Without the first clue where to find it. I used the Internet on my POKeTCH :3 and learned that within the Great Marsh a man would give it to me.

      So I flew back to Pastoria once again and payed 500 to get into the Marsh to speak with the man, he told me he had no use for it and gave me the HM Defog. I taught it to my STARAVIA and flew back to Solecian Town, the closest route to Celestic town. Now with STARAVIA knowing Defog I entered the fog and STARAVIA, flapped its wings and the fog faded, I then continued the path and battled several tough trainers and eventually came into Celestic Town, after speaking with everyone I noticed a Galactic thug standing in front of a cave in the center of the town.

      An old lady informed me that this Grunt was attempting to detonate a bomb. I rushed to scene and battled the idiot.

      Beating him rather easily, he scurried off. The old lady thanked me and I found out that this lady was Cynthia's grandmother, I gave her the old charm and she allowed me into the sacred cave.

      As I entered the cave damp cold air hit hard, I entered further in and found a weird warmth and came to some etchings. 3 beings surrounding a shining orb in the wall... What did it mean?

      Cynthia's grandma showed her self again, explaining to me the legend. She gave me the Surf HM as thanks for sending the Grunt off and returning the Charm.

      I left and encountered the man with spikey blue hair, the one I met in Coronet . Telling me not to interfere any more it was clear that he was the leader of Team Galactic... Much to my surprise. He left and Cynthia's grandmother told me I should go research this legend further at the Canalave Library. So I flew to Hearthrome and finally challenged Fantina, she battled well but succumbed to my strength. Winning her badge, respect and TM. I now had the ability to use Surf freely and I flew to Jubilife City once again and headed west from the Secluded Fishing Spot as I called it. I hopped on FLOATZEL and he ferried me across the small strait and I battled several trainers and entered Canalave. There, I met the move tutor who rid GOLEM of any memory of using Rock Smash. That... is where I saved. Next time I intend to battle the Canalave Gym Leader...

            I haven't posted here in FOREVER, probably for the fact that neither one of my ds's screens work now. But I get to borrow my aunt's friend's ds(: But, before my ds messed up, I beat Cynthia on Platinum. and then I was just playing around in the Battle area with my Jolteon && Houndoom(my two favorite pokemon(: ) and on HG I think I had just beaten bugsy.

                    I currently am running through Soul Silver again. This is kind of late, since I already have all 16 badges and my team is almost complete. I actually plan on challenging Red before the Elite Four with my level 55-60 team. (Note: Easier on the eyes if you have the option to show BB coding, since the little notes I put around about stuff like item/move choices are sized down)

                    Level 55 Golem (Leftovers) <- Nothing better for it really...
                    Earthquake
                    Stone Edge
                    Rock Climb (temp, want my full team for the fight)
                    Stealth Rock

                    Level 55 Feraligatr (Choice Scarf)
                    Waterfall
                    Ice Fang
                    Crunch
                    Earthquake

                    Level 55 Honchkrow (Scope Lens) Super Luck
                    Fly (convenience... even if I delete it, it'll be replaced with a heart scale, which is a hassle or a TM, which'll get replaced by Fly after the fight.)
                    Night Slash
                    Sucker Punch (Honchkrow needs a priority move because she's not very fast and the most fragile member of my team)
                    Superpower

                    Level 55 Flareon (Charcoal)
                    Fire Fang
                    Fire Blast
                    Sunny Day
                    Iron Tail

                    Level 57 Jolteon (Magnet/Wise Glasses) <- Nothing better...
                    Thunder Wave
                    Rain Dance (Gimmicky, I usually don't use weather moves for my eeveelutions, but I thought it'd be interesting.)
                    Thunder
                    Shadow Ball

                    Level 57 Scizor (Muscle Band) Technician
                    U-Turn
                    Bullet Punch
                    X-Scissor
                    Swords Dance

                    Feraligatr is actually really fast with the Choice Scarf. Not sure if it'll matter against level 80s, though... I have some weak members of my team in Golem and Flareon, but they provide some necessary coverage. Flareon just has a really shallow movepool. Jolteon already has 188 speed, but I'm still unsure whether it'll outspeed some of his pokes. I'm counting on it that it will, so it can paralyze everything he sends out to make it easier to kill them.

                    I'm going to make one run through of Mt Silver to get the items and such, and then I'll fight Red.

                    Edit: Okay, moment of truth. IMMA FIGHT YOU RED GET READY

                    Will report results on first attempt.

                    Update: WOW THAT COULD NOT HAVE GONE WORSE. His Pikachu just one-shotted me with Iron Tail. A freaking Pikachu, regardless of level difference, just one-shotted my Golem. WHAT. Swapped out the Leftovers for a Babiri Berry, see how this goes.

                    Update 2: HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA SUCK IT RED. I just beat you with a team of pokemon 30 levels under you, without the perfect IVs. I only used like a million items, but (actually 17, I counted) still, I BEAT YOU. HAH. The Elite Four is actually going to end up being more difficult, but I'm not going to grind to challenge it, since I have an ongoing Pokemon White playthrough and I'm considering getting a cap card so I can put a battle up on Youtube of me beating him with underleveled pokes. Why? Because I can.

                        Pokemon SoulSilver: So, after being Falkner, I made my way to Azalea Town, which Shaymoose and Zeus evolved into Croconaw and Flaaffy. I beat Bugsy with both of them then went to Goldenrod City. I got Kenya the Fearow from the guy in the little building and then defeated Whitney. I then went to Ecruteak City and caught myself a Magmar and named it Blaster. I then Immediately traded and evolved it into Magmortar then backtracked to Goldenrod and took Bill's Eevee of his hands and named it Psy. I rode my bike for a few hours and evolved it into Espeon before grinding both up to Lv20. Then I trained them on the Trainers I deliberately avoided. I defeated Morty with Psy's Confusion and Blaster's Faint Attack. I ran towards Olivine then surfed to Cianwood. I beat Chuck with Kenya's Aerial Ace and Zeus' ThunderPunch. I stopped afterwards

                        Pokemon Platinum: After beating Roark, I backtracked to Jubilife and then travelled through Eterna Forest. I then took out Gardenia and went into the Old Chateau in Eterna Forest. I found Rotom and named it Zero and then took out Team Galactic. I went past the trainers on Cycling Road and caught a Gible that I named Gibbs. Then I grinded a lot and caught a bunch of new Pokemon for the Pokedex. I took out Fantina afterwards.

                        EDIT: After beating Jasmine, I backtracked to areas like Union Cave, Ruins of Alph and Slowpoke Well to catch pokemon and collect items. Then I made my way to Mahogany and spent a whole 5 hours looking for a marill. Which I shortly killed once finding. Luckily, a second one game back after a few battles. Then I caught the Shiny Gyarados and beat Team Rocket. Pryce was way under leveled compared to me, but his Dewgong but up a good fight, since it used Rest a lot and he would use Healing items unexpectedly. What could've been a Two-Turn fight, turned into an Eight-Turn Fight.

                        EDIT: So, I went ahead and beat my rival before going towards Veilstone, getting Pokemon from the pokedex on the way. Then I got a Houndour, that I named Midnight, after the Houndour I had in XD. It quickly evolved into Houndoom but it wasn't helpful for Maylene's Gym, neither will it be for the next one.

                          I've been traipsing round the Sinnoh region recently, with the aim of training my Dragonair and Scizor to a respectable level. I eventually got sidetracked by an urge to capture some legendary pokemon. This fantastical journey led me across the region, my Crobat barely taking the strain of my hefty body as it flew me over rooftops, woodland canopy and snowy mountain peaks with its deceptively strong four wings, and what a region it is. We stopped a few times and had a coffee together, we both nibbled on some juicy, uncooked carrots. I wanted Zoobat to know that he was my equal, and that I would run him across the landscape if our roles were ever reversed in some sort of weird, film-like scenario. He appreciated the sentiment.

                          My quest took me up the sheer heights of Stark Mountain and towards Heatran, who proved to be quite the adversary. I didn't have many things strong enough to take a hit from him, and whittle his health down. Most of my Pokemon are either absurdly strong or relegated to the PC where they spend the rest of their miserable lives in agonising solitude. It really is a cruel word. So, I chose to use my Empoleon as I trusted that his Flash Cannon would be ideal for taking his health down slowly, which proved to be the case. Occasionally, I had Empoleon spray me down with Surf, such was the ferocity of the heat deep in the magma pits of Stark Mountain. After what felt like an eternity, I finally caught Heatran with an Ultra ball. I quickly pulled a rope out of my bag, and somehow ended up outside the caverns. I felt bad about leaving so many broken pokeballs scattered around the area, but I assume they'll just melt, eventually.

                          Next, I'll go after the three Legendary Golems. Stick around.

                          Since my last post, I beat both Fantina and Maylene and caught two new members for my team.

                          Also, my little Staravia evolved. Dumped Budew and replaced her with a new Roselia. And I also added a Quagsire to my team to replace Psyduck.

                          And I teamed up with Lucas to take down the two Galactic Grunts.

                            Pokemon SoulSilver: After beating Pryce, I got a call from Elm, telling me about Goldenrod's strange announcements. When I got there, I tried sneaking into the building using a Team Rocket Outfit, but it didn't quite work. I learnt the location of the Chairman and went down to get him but my rival Nick came and interrupted. He wasn't a challenge at all, so after destroying Team Rocket's temporary commander it became much better. Then I caught some Pokemon on the next Route, and sped through Ice path. afterwards I went back and caught pokemon in Ice Path and the Route past Blackthorn. Then I flew back to the route near mahogany and got a remoraid for the dex. I took out Clair and answered the Dragon Master's questions earning me the badge. I then took a little time to get the Dragon Pulse TM and my newest Team addition, Xtream the Dratini; who knows the move ExtremeSpeed.

                              After beating Red in my previous run in Soul Silver, I decided that I need something to fill the void until Black 2 arrives at my doorstep. I transferred Team Soul to Pokemon Black and proceeded to reset my game. Though, before we continue, let's take a moment to see the old team.



                              Cindy - Pierce - Alexis - Tiffany - Digit - Eliz

                              -------

                              I started up the game with one motive and one motive only: A Pokemon Little Cup run. I chose Chikorita, as he is a really good wall with a pretty nice typing, even though the Johto region thinks otherwise. Named him QIAOK, after the almighty Chief QIAOK from Jimmy31428. Solo'd up until Sprout Tower with the little grass type, where I caught myself a Wooper (Reef/M), who would assist me against Falkner.

                              The duo was able to take down Violet City with ease. Elm realized my talents and then gave me an egg, which hatched into a Togepi (Angrykori!/M). This trio did very well cleaning up Bugzy and everything in between.

                              Then I caught a Vulpix (Hayley/F), as it's a pretty nice Fire-type and the Fire Blast TM from Goldenrod is just too good to pass up. Hayley was able to sweep Whitney pretty nicely, which is cool.

                              I then got to Ecruteak, where I caught a Magnemite (Rastaman) and it, along with Angrykori!, cleaned up Morty like he was nothing. I then went to go to get my final team member, Natu (Two-Two/F) and then after a grinding session, I then got bored of the challenge and decided I'd just play it normally. So QIAOK, Angrykori!, Reef and Two-Two all evolved and I headed out. Before fighting Chuck and Jasmine, I decided to stop at the Safari Zone and I found a Larvitar. I pressed my luck and threw a Pokeball, where it shook 3 times and then clicked! I never used a Larvitar before and since Angrykori! was doubling types with Two-Two, I decided to box him and transfer him to Black or even a future Platinum run later.

                              I beat Jasmine and Chuck and I'm now in the Rocket Hideout in Mahogany.


                              QIAOK - Male - Level 29 [Overgrow] @ Miracle Seed
                              -Magical Leaf, Reflect, Synthesis and Poison Powder

                              This wall man, just that's all I really need to say. QIAOK never goes down in one hit, whether it's as weak as a Water Gun in the Sun or as strong as a STAB Flamethrower. For being a wall, QIAOK isn't actually a offensive slacker, being able to safely 2HKO Steelix in Overgrow range with Magical Leaf.


                              Reef - Male - Level 27 [Water Absorb] @ Quick Claw
                              -Surf, Mud Shot, Mud Bomb and Headbutt

                              Reef is an odd case. He hasn't really done anything yet, but he doesn't seem like the weakest link of my team. I guess he's the jack-of-all-trades, I guess. 95 BP STAB move, otherwise known as Surf, by the 4th gym is pretty amazing btw. I didn't really get to abuse with in my previous run, seeing as I got Eliz after Chuck.


                              Hayley - Female - Level 26 [Flash Fire] @ Charcoal
                              -Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Will-O-Wisp and Quick Attack

                              Named after the amazing Hayley Nicole Williams, of course <3. Fanboying aside, Hayley was a huge powerhouse ever since the start, especially when I was still following the LC mindset. Though, now that everything is evolving and there's been these plethora of water routes, she hasn't seen much action. Hopefully, once I'm done training my Larvitar, the Rocket Hideout and Pryce will fix this.


                              Rastaman - Neutral - Level 28 [Magnet Pull] @ Metal Coat
                              -Flash Cannon, Spark, Thunder and Thunder Wave

                              So I heard this thing absolutely destroys Black/White 2. I'm going to have to say that Magnemite destroys Johto too. With soft reset and date changing abuse, I was able to get Flash Cannon onto this thing the second I caught it, along with the 120 BP Thunder too. Resists Morty and has a parade in the ocean route. Electric/Steel is an amazing typing, both offensively and defensively.


                              Two-Two - Female - Level 28 [Synchronize] @ Shell Bell
                              -Shadow Ball, U-Turn, Me First and Fly

                              For those who've read my solorun back in the Nuzlocke Forums (hint: no one), you should know who this lovable bird is. Just like how she can destroy Gen II's Silver, she's back OHKOing everything with the the new Gen IV toys (and Special Shadow Ball). Can't wait to hit Clair in the face with a Me First boosted Dragon Pulse. ^.^


                              ♠Ace♠ - Male - Level 24 [Guts] @ Everstone
                              -Rock Slide, Dig, Payback and Screech

                              I still can't believe I caught one on my first try! I decided to name it Ace, as you could say that the capture was pure luck! Also, see that Everstone? Yeah, I don't like Pupitar that much. I'll probably postpone his evolution until he becomes completely lackluster or until he grows to Level 54, where he will evolve into Pupitar and then have a Rare Candy shortly afterwards, evolving into Tyranitar! Haha!


                              Angrykori! - Male - Level 25 [Serene Grace] @
                              -Extrasensory, Encore, Charm and Metronome

                              Special mentions to this guy right here, breezing through Morty with Rastaman and rivaling QIAOK for the bulkiest member on my team. It's a shame that you have to go, but I do assure you, that you will see more of Angrykori! in future runs. Oh right, Angrykori!'s name comes from the same place Two-Two is from.

                                Pokemon SoulSilver: So, after a lot of stuff happening (Safari Zone stuff, Catching Lugia and other pokemon, traveling to the Pokemon League) I took out the E4. Against Will, Blaster and Psy double teamed them using Flamethrower and Shadow Ball. Against Koga, Psy and Kenya took them out using Psybeam and Fly. Against Bruno, Psy did most of the work with Psybeam, but Shaymoose and Kenya did help when they were needed. Against Karen, Blaster tried helping with Focus Blast, but he kept missing, Zeus did some good damage with Signal Beam and Psy destroyed the Poison types with Psybeam. When it cam down to fighting Lance, Xtream was no help, but because of Shaymoose's amazing stats and his Avalanche attack, he could take a hit from a Thunder, still survive then completely destroy using the 120 Attack Power x4 Damage of it.

                                  Many things happened throughout my day of not posting in this thread, so let me lay down the details in a short yet informative matter.

                                  I beat Pryce, having Rastaman evolve into Magneton in the process. He was actually extremely easy, as with both Rastaman's STABs and the ability to outspeed all of Pryce's team members, you couldn't even blink before it was over.

                                  The Rocket Assault also went well. Just a little bit of extra training for Ace, that's all. On the way to Blackthorn though, I decided that my team needed a little makeover. I traded over Rastaman to Platinum, where I evolved him into a Magnezone. He is now the true nuke of my team, if he isn't already. In addition, when trading him back, I also gave him the Fire Stone, so I could evolve Hayley too. QIAOK had lots of fun in the route right before the Ice Path, as with the amount of Grass-weak Pokemon that inhabit it, he was able to evolve into a Meganium. Oh, I cecided to evolve Ace, as even though he has a horrible walking sprite, that Pupitar backsprite left me drooling.

                                  At Blackthorn, I knew Clair was coming up and I knew she would be a challenge. Though, I put away my instinct of grinding and decided to fight her anyways, as I absolutely hate grinding when it isn't absolutely necessary. Her Gyarados went down to Rastaman's Thunder, as expected. I'm not sure how the Dragonair fights played out, but I do remember that one died to Rastaman's Flash Cannon while the other, along with her Kingdra, died to Two-Two's Me First boosted Dragon Pulse, as I've spent so much time dreaming to do so.

                                  The stuff before the Elite Four were boring to be perfectly honest. I killed Lugia with a Crit Me Firsted Aeroblast, another thing I've been wanting to do and the Kimono Girls were lack luster at best, which was rather disappointing, as throughout my history of Soul Silver, they've always put up a challenge. Then I went through the route before Victory Road (or Victory Garden, as I call it) and Victory Road itself (which doesn't even deserve the name). My rival, ignorant as always, saw his team being swept before him. Sneasel died to Hayley, Golbat to Rastaman, Kadabra to QIAOK, Haunter to Ace and Magnezone, along with his starter, to Reef.

                                  Now, for the good stuff: The Elite Four. Will put up a good fight, as my team isn't really built to fight Psychic-typed Pokemon. The only members who could hit Psychic-types super effectively was Ace and Two-Two, with Dark Pulse and Shadow Ball respectively. Well, there's Hayley too, but since her evolution granted her the gift, or in this case, the curse of being faster than everything, Payback isn't really much of an option against Will. Luckily, with a mix of Ace's bulk, Two-Two's speed and Rastaman's overpowered Choice Specs assaults, Will went down.

                                  Not much to say about Koga really. His Bug-typed Pokemon died to Hayley, as expected and Muk actually died to two of Ace's Earthquakes. Crobat, the only threat in my eyes (seeing as I have two Ground-typed Pokemon for Muk), couldn't even touch Rastaman.

                                  Bruno, on the other hand, required a soft reset or two. I was able to get the glorious "Earthquake while you Dig" combo off, which was nice. But that Hitmonlee got me every single time. I think it was only until my second lost where I remembered that I had the Occa Berry and the Choice Scarf! I equipped them to QIAOK and Two-Two respectively and then I was able to launch out a highspeed Fly to finish the Hitmonlee in one hit (QIAOK served as back up just in case Two-Two couldn't have done the job). Machamp's own No Guard was his curse, as it allowed me to burn him with the Will-O-Wisp, being the first time I've ever used the move since I got Hayley. Hitmonchan is walled by Quagsire and Onix is laughable.

                                  Karen, who often is the bane of my life, could have been a tiny bit more challenging in my opinion. Umbreon did try to stall me out for days on end, but since I love smashing rocks when I play Soul Silver, I had a plethora of Ethers, more than enough to deal with Umbreon's evasion parade. With the Occa Berry that was not used in the previous battle, QIAOK managed to get up a Light Screen, which helped Reef absolutely destroy the Houndoom without having to worry about too many Dark Pulse flinches. Gengar's only way of hitting Two-Two is Lick, so a couple of Shadow Balls took it out. Vileplume and Murkrow have nothing to touch Rastaman, so that was easy.

                                  Lance, oh the threat called Lance, was pretty fun. I mean, after replaying Soul Silver a bunch of times, you can really make any team you pick deal with him with enough Potions. Most of his moves are low accuracy move anyways and the one attack he uses on his Dragonite that doesn't miss is Outrage, which puts him into confusion. So, so some up sum it up, Rastaman beat Gyarados, Dragonite 1 and Aereodactly, Quagsire beat Dragonite 2, Ace beat Charizard and Two-Two had the satisfying pleasure to defeat Lance's main Dragonite with the Me First boosted Outrage.

                                  Oh man, I love my job.

                                  Now I'm in Kanto, doing something that I don't always do. I'm going to challenge the Kanto gyms after beating all the possible trainers, meaning that I will have a consecutive gym battle streak, without one non-plot based battle in between. Of course, Blue's (gah, almost called him Green because of Pokemon Special) sidequest will probably stop this idea, if I recall correctly, but at least the 7 gym leaders will all be beaten in a row, without any gym trainers to stop me.


                                  QIAOK - Male - Level 42 [Overgrow] @ Miracle Seed
                                  -Magical Leaf, Reflect, Light Screen and Flash

                                  Nothing changed really. All QIAOK did was become a Dual Screener. I might replace Flash with Synthesis or Body Slam, as accuracy is never on my side. Both of these options have their flaws though, as for Synthesis, I have items and for Body Slam, well, QIAOK is Calm, so I'd probably only use it for the parahax and, as with accuracy, hax is never in my favor.


                                  Reef - Male - Level 41 [Water Absorb] @ Quick Claw
                                  -Surf, Earthquake, Strength and Blizzard

                                  I honestly thought Reef would steal the show when I fought Lance, but I guess my team members didn't allow him to do so. It's okay though, as even though he never really has his moment to shine, he's always been helpful and he's been getting along with Quick Claw, along me to go first almost all the time!


                                  Hayley - Female - Level 40[Flash Fire] @ Charcoal
                                  -Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Will-O-Wisp and Payback

                                  Hey look, I deleted the useless Quick Attack for the semi-useless Payback! Meh, I guess it will have its uses when I might a almighty special wall like Sabrina's Mr. Mime. Hayley has been doing what any other Fire-typed would've done, just spam Flamethrowers and not give two cents to any Steel, Grass or Bug type who's in my way. Even though her role is generic, that doesn't mean I love her any less though.


                                  Rastaman - Neutral - Level 41 [Magnet Pull] @ Metal Coat
                                  -Flash Cannon, Discharge Thunder and Thunder Wave

                                  There was never a time in this run that Rastaman was underleveled compared to the rest of my team. Quite the contrary actually, beating the league with him at Level 40 while the rest of my team was still in their mid 30s (36, 37 and 38). He is the official nuke of my team, much like how Tiffany was the nuke of my previous run. Are Electric-typed Pokemon always this destructive?


                                  Two-Two - Female - Level 41[Synchronize] @ Amulet Coin
                                  -Shadow Ball, Psychic, Me First and Fly

                                  A Special STAB move at last! If Two-Two was a threat to any boss now, then you better be prepared now, because Two-Two has the perfect set for the perfect run. Also, don't delete Me First ever, it's just way too good.


                                  ♠Ace♠ - Male - Level 41 [Guts] @ Muscle Band
                                  -Rock Slide, Earthquake, Crunch and Hyper Beam

                                  Look who I decided to evolve after all! Ace is pulling extreme weight, which is something that I thought he wouldn't be able to do because he is an NFE. I guess I should be ashamed as Cindy the Quilava also did amazing things in her run too. Oh yeah, did you know that Larvitar can learn Hyper Beam?! It still leaves me speechless. You know what also leaves me speechless? That Hyper Beam animation, it's just so awesome!

                                  What a day! I've just been introduced to the wonders of those strange creatures called Pokemon. The old man I saw on TV called Professor Rowan stopped Barry and I from having an awesome race to Sandgem Town!

                                  He told us we were foolhardy for our actions then asked us if we liked Pokemon. Of course I do! He tried to ask again, luckily Barry stopped him with the argument of "We'll both answer we love Pokemon 100 times if you want!"

                                  So then he offered us Pokemon before looking around for his briefcase. Moments later, this girl the same age as us appeared holding a leather suitcase. She looked astonished when he said, that he was giving out two of the Pokemon.

                                  After a bit of arguing and reasoning I finally was allowed to choose my first partner! Yes, the moment I've waited for all my life has finally come! So looking into the briefcase I saw three Pokeballs. One contained this little,blue penguin called Piplup. Another was of a tiny blazing monkey called Chimchar.

                                  The last one was this little dinosaur like creature with a leaf sticking out if its head. I don't know what it was, but he seemed to be the most likeable to me.

                                  So I took out Turtwig's Pokeball and then Barry almost instantly picked up Chimchar's. Of course, trying to have an advantage against me...
                                  After a boring speech from Professor Rowan the professor along with his assistant apparently called Dawn,disappeared.

                                  Almost immedieately, Barry eagerly walked up to me. "RK9, I've wanted to say this all my life. Are you ready?" he asked.

                                  "Yea..." I muttered awkwardly.

                                  "Then RK9,right here right now,I challenge you to a battle!" he exclaimed.

                                  I've got to admit,it wasn't the most exciting battle ever. Just a bunch of scratchs,leers and some hard tackles. Eventually, I had beaten Barry."What?I-I lost?" he stammered.

                                  After handing over small amounts of prize money,we headed home. Later that night I told Mum what happened. She looked rather shocked as I explained."You're lucky your alright RK9... imagine what could of happened if nobody stopped you two! RK9, you need to thank Professor Rowan for your Pokemon. He lives in Sandgem Town the next one from here." his mother explained.

                                  "I know Mum!" I protested,sighing.

                                  "Alright,RK9 no need to talk to your mother like that. Here,take these it'll get you to places faster." she said.

                                  She rummaged in her handbag and pulled out two bright red running shoes.I thanked her and a second later,Barry's mum walked in. She explained she wanted to deliver a parcel to Barry,but he'd bolted off already. Then Mum offered for me to deliver it to him. What?! Mum, stop getting me involved in everything... I'm not a postman!

                                  Barry's mum thanked us and left saying he'd probably be in Jubilife.

                                  So without further ado, I headed out to Sandgem Town battling all these weak Pokemon- Bidoofs were no match for Turtwig! I walked into the sunny town of Sandgem Town to see Dawn waiting outside the lab.

                                  She was waiting for me? Creepy.... After greeting me, we headed into the lab as Barry bumped into us. He quickly farewelled and bolted off down to the next route. Inside,Professor Rowan talked about Turtwig and asked if I wanted to nickname him.

                                  "Yes,Basil!" I said.

                                  Professor Rowan raised an eyebrow but continued. He talked about his job all that stuff and then told me about the Pokedex. I hardly paid attention to be honest all I heard was - Pokedex... blah blah blah... Sinnoh.... blah blah...Research.

                                  So I took the Pokedex and headed out. Dawn showed me around a bit then headed off saying to talk to my family. After heading home,talking to my mum and arguing I could totally go on an adventure, I headed back up to Sandgem.

                                  On the northern route,Dawn was waiting in a patch of grass."I'll teach you how to catch Pokemon!" she said,dragging me into the grass.

                                  A wild Bidoof appeared and Dawn sent out her little Piplup. Piplup did some pounds and Bidoof tackled until Bidoof got into yellow HP.Dawn threw a normal Pokeball and it was captured.

                                  She explained how to properly catch it then went off leaving me with 5 pokeballs. None of the Pokemon really appealed to me... so I just headed up to Jubilife.

                                  Once again, Dawn was there waiting. Sheesh, what's with her? Anyway,we watched as this strange man appeared and came from a pole. "Um..." Dawn said.

                                  Then the man went into some kind of yell."How did you indentify me as a member of the International Police??!" he said,astounded.

                                  "What?I beg your pardon? I was just trying to make conversation..." Dawn said politely.

                                  "Heh, you claim that. But can I believe you?" the man asked.

                                  Dawn remained silent as he continued."Oh fine. You seem not that suspicious. And you are trainers yes? Maybe you can make use of this?" he suggested.
                                  He pulled out a small electronic device from his brown trench coat."Here you go. It's a VS. Recorder,I don't do battling much so maybe it'll be some use to people like you.

                                  "Er thanks." I said awkwardly.

                                  "Now... that's over, I will inform you of my name. My real name... no wait I shall only tell you my official police name. Looker's the name and have you kids heard of the saying don't be a thief?" he asked.
                                  I nodded."Good good,I'm sure you have. But unfortunately,these rascels Team Galactic can't seem to understand. Now I ask you if you see me on duty,only to inform me of bad happenings." he said, before walking away.

                                  "That was strange." admitted Dawn before glancing at a sign."Here it is RK9, the trainer school!"

                                  She showed me a small building with a red roof and golden bell. "I think your friend,Barry went in earlier. Maybe he's still there.Well see you RK9!" she called and also departed.

                                  Before heading inside the trainer school, I decided to talk to the friendly locals. One woman gave me a quick claw,a kind fisherman also made me an old Rod. Heading back to the school,my arm buried with new items, I picked up a few potions along the way. Inside the trainer school,two people stood in a corner. They challenged me to a battle and after a few rounds and victories to me,I received a purple potion.

                                  Then I noticed Barry by the blackboard. Strange of him to study. I walked over casually."Hey RK9! What're you doing here anyway?" he asked.
                                  I handed him the brown parcel his mum had given me earlier.

                                  He unwrapped the parcel and his face lit up."A town map! Yes!" he cheered."Huh?There's two... that's odd. RK9,here take one!" he said and offered me the map.

                                  I stuffed it in my small bag while Barry checked his. He muttered something about Oreburgh and gyms before racing off again. I sighed and slowly followed. As I made my way into the setting sun, a man with a stubby,brown beard approached me. He talked about Poketechs and some clowns. After finding them and answering their ridiculously easy questions, I received a blue Poketech. Making my way out of town,Barry bolted into me. "Hey RK9, did you get stronger?" he asked,grinning.

                                  And then there was a battle, it was much like the first one to be honest. Just some tackles and more growls from his new teammate Starly. I claimed victory again and he left disappointed. I tried to avoid all the trainers on this route for a few reasons : I wanted to catch a Pokemon you could find easily in the Gate and train it up here.
                                  So I headed to Oreburgh Cave with my seriously overlevelled Turtwig...

                                  To be continued soon xD, thanks for getting through that mountain of text.

                                    Pokemon Platinum: After I left Veilstone's Gym, I helped Dawn get her Pokedex back. Afterwards, I left for Pastoria, training Midnight up to the others. Then, after exploring the Great Marsh and expanding the pokedex, I left for the gym, defeating my Rival Nick. I thought that Crasher Wake would be a problem like he was last time, but he was nothing special, I was able to OHKO all his Pokemon, Oak using Wood Hammer and Zero using Shock Wave.

                                    Pokemon SoulSilver: After waking up from a well deserved rest, I took my first step as the Johto Champion! Sadly, it was brought down upon when I was told by Elm that I still have a whole new region to conquer. So, before going on the S.S Anne to reach Kanto, I flew to the Safari Zone and caught new Pokemon. Then after getting to Vermilion, I decided to take on Lt. Surge straight away! Unlike previous gym battles, this one was challenging, Kenya managed to take down Raichu all by itself, despite the big difference in power and its weakness to Electricity. Afterwards, Psy's appearance made Surge's Electrode use Light Screen which made me bring out Xtream. Xtream had some speed troubles but Dragon Rush + ExtremeSpeed was able to take out both Electrodes. Then Blaster OHKO'd his Magneton and a combination of Shaymoose's Dig, Psy's Swagger cause him to defeat himself.

                                      A Shiny Gastly --- it evolved into Haunter :D

                                      Chickorita (the starter pokemon :D) --- it evolved to BayLeef and it evolved on lvl 18 .. and i am not sure why o-o cuz it supposed to evolve at lvl 16 (at lvl 16 it evolved but .. it then said " huh? chikorita did not evolve... " ) i think something happend wrong or i clicked A and B? the same time? and it kinda cancelled the evolve
