Goldenrod City

It’s time. Every single one of my main and buffer teammates are lv. 18, except for Kenya who is lv. 20. Regarding party setup for the Gym, I’ve exchanged Emilia for Kenya, since Emilia’s only damaging move is resisted by the whole Gym, and Thomas for Aaron, since Aaron’s faster and has twice the Sp. Atk; he might be useful for a last-minute sledgehammer against Whitney. I’ve got healing items and others packed away. It’s time to take on a fat cow—and her Miltank too! (Oh! Burn!)

 

I won’t pretend I’m not nervous… I have Carmen in the lead. I might be able to raise her a couple of levels and get her evolved before the boss. The first trainer has nothing but Sentrets; Carmen OHKOs them all with Hyper Fang. The next trainer’s Meowth gives us a bit of trouble but Carmen pulls through.

 

Carmen pwns the next trainer, and then we’ve got one more before Whitney. Will she make it to her evolution…?

 

Success! Carmen just makes it in time for Whitney! Say hello to my brand new Raticate!

 

I return to the pokemon center to heal, and I also rearrange my party. I can’t deny the feeling of sinking dread in my chest! :c Please let everyone pull through it okay.

 

And with that…

 

BOSS: Gym Leader Whitney

“I’m warning you—I’m good!” I know, Whitney. That’s what I’m afraid of.

 

Again the awesome music makes its appearance. Now its frentic desperation feels ominous…

Clefairy Lv. 17 versus Kenya Lv. 20. I’ve decided to start strong. Go, Aerial Ace! She uses Doubleslap, doing minimal damage. Another Aerial Ace from me brings Clefairy within a sliver of death; will she waste her potion here?

 

She does! Kenya shaves her down to half HP the very same turn she heals up, and outspeeds to knock out Celfairy before it can make a move. Success, Kenya!

 

That, however, was just the opening act. The real battle… begins now!!

 

Whitney sends out Miltank, Lv. 19! Go, Victoire! I buff my Geodude with an X Defend first turn. Stomp only does five damage! Next turn I use an X Attack.

 

Now… MAGNITUDE!

 

Magnitude 8… no, it only takes away about a third of her HP! Still, with my defense buff and a few Super Potions, I should be able to outlast her!

 

Gah! Stupid flinchhax with Stomp keeps stealing my turns. I have to heal up…

 

Curses! Whitney’s packing a second Super Potion! I almost had her!

 

Whitney keeps whittling me down with Stomp. Those flinches are wasting a lot of turns… I’ve also had some bad luck with Magnitude. A lot of fives.

 

Oh! I finally got a high number; she’s in the red! I think she’s out of potions, but will she use Milk Drink?

 

No, Stomp again! Please don’t flinch, please don’t flinch… YES!! Victoire did it! Miltank is down, and I didn’t lose anyone! And Victoire leveled up to 19!

 

The Plain Badge and Attract TM are mine. Huzzah!

 

With this, one of the biggest obstacles in the game is out of the way. I feel so much better! Next time, we’ll continue our journey and finally get rid of that squiggly tree. Stay tuned!

Current Teammates: Felix (Croconaw), Carmen (Raticate), Franklin (Flaaffy), Victoire (Geodude), Kenya (Spearow), Aaron (Kadabra)

Goldenrod City

Don’t bite the apple, Eve. Caught up in the “in” crowd, now you’re in style, and if the winter gets cold, en vogue with your skin out. The city of sin is a pity on a whim, good girls gone bad, this city’s filled with them…

 

…Ahem.

 

Back in town, and now it’s finally time to explore around Goldenrod City. I might have a little bit of alcohol in my system, so bear with me! <3 First up, let’s see what the department store has to offer! …oh right, Mom’s packages. I get berries and a repel. Yay…

 

“The basement is the warehouse. It’s not open to customers.” But you still brought me down here, elevator lady! I’m glad I came, though. All kinds of swag!

 

…hehe, watching Thomas go up the escalators. ^^ So cute! I also pick up Thunder for Franklin… >:’D Muaha…MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Some guy wants to trade a Machop for a Drowzee, but I don’t have one… :c

 

That’s all for the department store. Let’s check out other places! At the game corner, I can buy an Abra, a Sandshrew, and a Dratini, though the latter costs a whopping 2100 coins! Voltorb Flip is pretty addicting; I gather up 900 coins and purchase both an Abra and a Sandshrew. I’ve decided to pass on a Dratini, as it’s weak until it evolves into Dragonair (and even then it’s just okay until it evolves again at Lv. 55) and you get a great one for free later on. Abra is named Aaron, “Gentle nature, likes to fight,” and Sandshrew is Regina, “Brave nature, strong willed.”

 

I’m boxing Regina but I’m switching out Emilia for Aaron at the moment; he only has one level to go before evolving. I’ve been thinking about cycling pokemon like Aaron, Kenya, and Hamilton (before he died) in and out of the party to create a “buffer” of sorts. They wouldn’t be part of my main party per se, but they could fill in on bosses some members of my main party would have a hard time against and provide an up-to-level replacement if one of my mainstays bites the bullet. So thus far we have a main party—Felix, Carmen, Franklin, Emilia, Victoire, and Thomas—and two “buffer” pokemon: Aaron and Kenya.

 

I get a free Bicycle, but I’m not gonna use it much since I like seeing my pokemon toddle after me.

 

Now there’s two more stops to make, but they’re both pretty big ones…

 

Radio Tower

Yes, I’m including this as its own area for reasons that should be obvious if you’re familiar with these games.

 

Whitney’s here, trying to get a radio card. She says the quiz is too hard. Let’s take a look at some of these questions: “Can you check your Town Map with your pokegear?” “Nidorina can only be female, correct?”

 

…Whitney, dear, really? Were we asked the same questions? I have a hard time believing you didn’t know these facts. I get a Radio Card, and upstairs a Blue Card for password points. The guard says something’s wrong with the director. OH MAN WHAT COULD IT BE

 

Our next stop…

 

Goldenrod Underground

THIS IS ITS OWN AREA TOO OKAY SHUT UP

 

I entered from the southern exit, near Bill’s house. …nooooooooooooooooooo!! It’s Lyra! Go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away NO I DON’T WANT A FASHION CASE TO PLAY DRESS UP WITH MY POKEMON

 

I ONLY DRESS UP MYSELF OKAY IT HAPPENS IN POKEMON Y

 

There are trainers down here. “My pokemon just got a haircut. I’ll show you how strong it is!” Your pokemon’s a Lickitung. I don’t think it has hair…

 

Speaking of haircuts, I give Carmen one. Aww! The photo guy lets me dress up as Team Rocket, which just seems like a bad idea. Wouldn’t that be like dressing up as the Crips? …what the hell, I’ll do it anyway.

 

After a few more battles, Aaron evolves into a Kadabra. Huzzah! Incidentally, from roaming around with him, I’ve noticed Aaron loves buildings and the city and doesn’t like the countryside, haha! I guess it makes sense—he grew up in Goldenrod, after all. He’s a city boy to the core!

 

And with that, every one of my main and buffer pokemon, except Aaron himself, is at the desired level for the Gym. Next time, we tackle one of the most infamous bosses in the pokemon franchise. Stay tuned…

Goldenrod City

Despite the fact that there’s a million things to do here, I’m going to ignore most of them for now. I’m not ready to deal with all the stuff in Goldenrod quite yet, and I’m certainly not prepared to throw down with Whitney.

 

The guy in the northern gate wants mail delivered and hands me a free Spearow holding some mail. Woot! Kenya’s details are: “Hasty nature. Proud of its power.” And she's level 20 with Aerial Ace?!?!

 

I finally have a Flying-type and I’m tempted to put her on my team, but who could I replace for her? Carmen and Emilia are probably the weakest links, but I really like both of them! :c And that’s not even counting how I also wouldn’t mind sticking in Hamilton thanks to his Quick Powder! I’m putting Kenya in the box for now, and finally drawing out Victoire.

 

Route 35

There’s actually no grass nearby, so I’ll have to fight my way through a horde of trainers before I get a chance to try. “I count more on my pokemon than my boyfriend,” says one picknicker. And he’s standing right next to her! Ouch!

 

Felix reaches Lv. 18 and evolves into Croconaw. Hells yeah! ;D

 

“Behold my dexterity and grace!” says the guy who leads with a Lv. 2 (!!) Voltorb. Pffft, what? And Juggler Irwin now has our number. I’m sure he won’t do anything creepy with it! :’p

 

Oh lord another firebreather. Let’s go, Thomas.

 

CRITICAL HIT FAINT ATACK FROM A MAGMAR

 

…Thomas only barely survives with 3HP! Switching to Carmen… D:

 

*whew!* thanks to speed and Hyper Fang, the crisis is over! And now… we’re finally to some grass!

 

“A wild Pidgey appeared!” …aw, Felix, you took it down again?! Do you have some sort of vendetta against Pidgeys? I find a Payback TM at the bottom of the route and then it’s time to enter the National Park!

 

National Park

Oh, looks like we have our first call from Irwin! “I always look forward to what you’ll be doing next, Dee! *click!*” …um…

 

Since Felix is Lv. 18, which is what I’m aiming for with all party members for Whitney, I’ve temporarily boxed him and given Hamilton, the Ditto, a spot on the team. Let’s just see how this works out! :3

 

…and augh, this music! So beautiful! uwu  I’m avoid the grass for now, because I want to try for a Scyther or Pinsir in the Bug-Catching Contest after I’m done exploring.

 

In the back we find a Soothe Bell, a Dig TM which I teach to Carmen, and a Full Heal. A teacher also gives us a Quick Claw which I give to Thomas right away. Also, everyone here is shilling the Pokewalker for some reason. Too bad I can’t use it! ;w;

 

Before we take care of the Bug-Catching Contest and the trainers in the grass, I’ve got one more place to visit…

 

Route 36

Nearby is a trainer. Let’s take Hamilton on a test drive!

 

His first pokemon is an Abra, which probably doesn’t know any damaging moves. Let’s not Transform on this one. Go, Emilia! …and his next pokemon is another Abra. -_-

 

Ah, a Kadabra! Now here is a worthy foe! Thanks to the Quick Powder, Hamilton should outspeed. Hamilton, transform!

 

Ohmigosh Hamilton doesn’t outspeed NOOOOOOO KADABRA KILLED HIM WITH CONFUSION TTmTT

 

My first death… no, poor Hamilton! D: I thought… I thought you were a cool little guy. I wanted you on my team. I never saw you do battle… I never even got to know you. Sorry…

 

Aaah! Kadabra almost takes down both Thomas and Franklin as well! I endure thanks to some item usage…

 

That’s… it’s finally over. Sorry again, Hamilton…

 

Grass…

 

Female Nidoran. Named her Nikki. Personal details are: “Naïve nature. Capable of taking hits.”

 

I meet a kid who promises to give me stuff next time we talk. Also, Mom bought another new thing with my money! : O

 

…and that’s it for here. Time for the Bug-Catching Contest.

 

National Park

All right. I’ve got Emilia, pokemon catcher extraordinaire, out front. Let’s see if I get lucky and score me a Pinsir or a Scyther! I’d settle for a Venonat, though. Heck, even a Butterfree. Anything that’s not a Weedle evolution.

 

Entering the super-tall grass at the top of the park. Pleeeaaase! *-*

 

…It’s a Butterfree. :I Well, whatever. Go, Emilia.

 

DAMMIT

 

OF COURSE THE VERY NEXT POKEMON I RUN INTO IS A SCYTHER

 

WHY WOULDN’T IT BE

 

Regarding Butterfree, I’m naming him Bud. “Quirky nature. Likes to fight.” I don’t even place in the top three for the contest. There goes my chance at a Sun Stone… Bud gets boxed.

 

Now that I’ve completed the contest, I’m free to enter the grass and clean house. And jeez, all the trainers here want my number!

 

And with that, all our errands north of the city are done. We lost our first friend today, and I can’t say that I expect he’ll be our last. Despite the dangers that lie in wait for us, however, we will beat on, borne against the tides of the future, determined. Next time, we return to Goldenrod and prepare for everything to do there. Stay tuned.

Current Teammates: Felix (Croconaw), Carmen (Rattata), Franklin (Flaaffy), Emilia (Gastly), Victoire (Geodude), Thomas (Slowpoke)

Azalea Town

You know who I forgot about? This joker right here.

 

BOSS: Silver

Silver leads with Gastly Lv. 14; I have out Carmen Lv. 15. I’m immune to Ghost-type moves and have Bite, sucka. Not even a contest! Next up is Zubat Lv. 16. I’m sending out Franklin, Lv. 15. Thundershock and… done!

 

Last up is Bayleef, Lv. 18. I send out Lv. 14 Emilia. Hypnosis, check. Curse, check. Damn, it woke up and threw up a Reflect! Let’s apply sleep again. Switching to Carmen and spamming Hyper Fang for victory!

 

“Humph! Listen, you. You only won because my pokemon were weak.” And who trained them that way, huh?  …Joey, you need to

 

STOP

 

CALLING

 

Ilex Forest

Time to catch me some Farfetch’d! I hated this in the original games and I hate it even more here with the dumb crackling sticks and stuff!

 

Finally both Farfetch’d are mine! Turns out the boss named them Far and Fetch’d. That’s… pretty bad. And we get HM01 for our troubles! Cut, huh… that’s not a move I want to teach my Pokemon. But it turns out Beedrill can learn it! Oh, Lizzie! <3

 

A few minutes of powerleveling later, and Lizzie is now a Beedrill! After evolving, she smiled and said she’d put in extra effort. Awwww! I’m still just gonna use her as an HM slave, hehe!

 

I’ve bumped Victoire out of the party for just a little bit, and taught Lizzie Cut and Rock Smash and even Flash. Now it’s time to progress!

 

Moving through the forest and I can’t even take one step without running into a Weedle or Kakuna. Sigh…

 

HOLY CRAP IS THAT FAT MAN HUMPING A TREE?!?! Oh, he’s “headbutting” it

 

Sure

 

He taught it to Felix (thanks?) and then I run into another strange Japanese lady! o:


“Kimono Girl, Kimono Girl, lost and all alone. Poor girl lost in the dark Ilex Forest.” Are you talking about yourself in the third person because the last one didn’t, exactly. ...apparently she had trouble finding the exit which was, I dunno, twenty steps away? Thomas showed her the way out.

 

Lady, if you’re getting shown the ropes by a Slowpoke, you have problems.

 

Route 34

Finally, I am free of the land of ever-Weedle! It’s also a new area, so you know what that means!

 

Ditto, lv. 10. “Impish nature. Capable of taking hits.” Name: Hamilton. …huh. I never thought I’d catch a Ditto. Whoa! He even comes holding a Quick Powder! I’m almost tempted to use him… I just know that he’ll get owned thanks to that first-turn Transform and eventually get hit by a crit or something. Box’d.

 

In the midst of beating up training against little kids and fat baldies Mom buys something with my money again. Hooray?

 

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd it’s Lyra again. Ugh. Great, now she has my pokegear number. She is doing this on purpose, I just know it!

 

OH AND HER GRANDMA SHIPS US. HOW WONDERFUL

 

I box Lizzie again using the daycare PC, but I don’t pull Victoire out just yet. Trust me, there’s a reason.

 

Just a bit north, the policeman says “I’m on patrol for suspicious individuals,” which is code for “I attack children under cover of night.” Now only one trainer stands between me and Goldenrod City!

 

He goes down easily and mrphrmmnggnrghragh!! JOEY. YOU’RE ALMOST AS BAD AS LYRA. YOU’RE IN CAHOOTS, AREN’T YOU?!

 

And with that…

 

Goldenrod City

We’re here. Next time, we see what awaits us in Johto’s largest city. Stay tuned!


Current Teammates: Felix (Totodile), Carmen (Rattata), Franklin (Flaaffy), Emilia (Gastly), Thomas (Slowpoke)

Azalea Town

Amazing how the rain just stops right on Azalea’s borders, huh? Right away we have a Rocket Grunt expositing for those of us who don’t know who Team Rocket is (which I should hope is 0% of people who play pokemon)

 

After that’s done, it’s time to heal up. Someone in the center talks about “Bill’s PC” even though to me, it’s still “someone’s PC.” I could go meet Kurt now, but I have an errand to run first:

 

Ilex Forest

What does Ilex mean, anyway? Well, new pokemon time. Goddamit, ANOTHER Weedle?! *rage face* Name’s Cleo, details are “Naïve nature. Likes to relax” but I quite frankly don’t care. Well, whatever.  Back to Azalea.

 

Azalea Town

Kurt has some harsh words about Team Rocket using pokemon to do their dirty work. So what? I use pokemon to do my dirty work. And he’s off!

 

Slowpoke Well

Kurt “took a tumble” down the well and “can’t move” because he’s “hurt his back.” Yet he is perfectly capable of standing upright with his hands clasped tightly behind his back… tell the truth, old man. You just wanted me to do all the legwork, didn’t you? And Joey calls out of nowhere. Okay.

 

…wah!! While I was running around, Togepi hatched from its egg! I’m naming him Ronan. “Serious nature. Sturdy body.” And how the HELL did the Professor know to call at the EXACT MOMENT Ronan hatched? Is he spying on me? D:

 

Well, it’s a new area. Despite being named after it, Slowpoke are pretty rare here, so I expect to get another Zubat.

 

HOLY COW I WAS PROVEN WRONG

 

“WILD SLOWPOKE APPEARED”

 

I WANT SO BADDDDDDD

 

Oh my god—I put it to sleep and used Lick with Emilia, knowing it wouldn’t KO even with type and level advantage and LICK CRITICAL HIT… but the Slowpoke has survived with a sliver of health! Pleeeasssee…

 

Success! I’ve named him Thomas. Personal details: “Rash nature. Hates to lose.” Despite the fact that I already have a good Water-type on my team, I’m putting him on in place of the newly-hatched Ronan because A) One will handle physical and the other special B) Psychic-type would be good to have and C) I just want to okay

 

And with that… hey-o, full party! Now let’s kick some Rocket ass!

 

So I talked to Thomas in the middle of Team Rocket’s Slowpoketail-for-profit area... “Your pokemon seems somehow unhappy.” Gee, I wonder why?

 

The first Rocket Grunt is little more than fodder for Victoire and Carmen, and the second fares little better. Victoire easily sweeps the third, and then it’s time for a showdown DAMMIT JOEY QUIT CALLING THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IN TEN MINUTES OKAY THERE IS SUCH A THING AS TOO MUCH

 

One of the captive Slowpokes has mail. Read it? Hell yeah! “Be good and look after the house with grandpa and Slowpoke.”  But daddy, grandpa is a slowpoke! HAR HAR HAR

 

Anyway, time to showdown with the boss. I do have to wonder, however, what an Executive is doing in a place like this. A little operation to cut off some tails involving three whole peons, and one of the top four guys in all of Team Rocket has to be there to supervise? Proton, I get the feeling there’s executives… and “executives.” You’re probably the latter.

 

BOSS: Executive Proton

“I am often labeled as the scariest and cruelest guy in Team Rocket,” says the guy leading with a Lv. 8 Zubat. Wut? I lead with Thomas, Lv. 8, just to give him some experience, and switch to Franklin, Lv. 15, on the first turn. Zubat fails and instantly gets paralyzed from Static on the first turn. One Thundershock and it is toast.

 

Next, Proton sends out Koffing Lv. 12 (which is, might I add, weaker than the pokemon of the prior boss!) and I counter with Emilia Lv. 13. I can’t remember if this Koffing has Selfdestruct or not, but Emilia neutralizes both it and the threat of poison. Hypnosis, Curse, trololol. What a joke of a boss.

 

Oh, now that the danger’s passed, Kurt’s right and raring to go. “Hurt back” my ass. Oh well, at least I can make custom balls out of apricorns now.

 

JOEY I SWEAR TO GOD IF YOU CALL ME ONE MORE TIME

 

Azalea Town

If their sprite are to be believed, all of the Slowpoke suddenly have their tails back. Wha? A little bit of leveling and I’m ready for the Gym. All pokemon are Lv. 14, except for Franklin who is 15.

 

(Incidentally, I figured out Thomas’s personality while I was leveling. He’s laid-back and happy-go-lucky, which means he gets along great with Carmen and Felix, but come battle time and the “hates to lose” part shows itself.)

 

I’d almost forgotten that Bugsy’s gym had gotten a redesign. Why the hell are these Bug Catchers using Lv. 12 and 13 Caterpies and Kakunas? Break out the Butterfrees and Beedrill! The trainers here are barely even worth mentioning. Soon enough I’m at Bugsy. He was a joke in the originals, but I’ve heard that he can be a bit tough for nuzlockers this time around. Here we go!

 

BOSS: Leader Bugsy

SHIT I forgot that he leads with his Lv. 17 Scyther! D: I lead with Felix, Lv. 15. Well, guess what, Bugsy? FELIX KNOWS ROCK TOMB HAHAHAHAHAHA

 

One Rock Tomb gets him low enough that he has to use his berry. I was honestly expecting him to use U-Turn, but he decided to Leer instead! I’m expecting a U-Turn this turn, however… should I switch to Victoire to mitigate the defense loss, or count on Felix’s bulk to see us through?

 

I’m chancing it! Go, Felix!

 

He uses U-Turn and OH MY GODDDD FELIX WAS LEFT WITH LITERALLY 1 HP

 

Bugsy sends out Lv. 15 Metapod and I heal up with a Super Potion the next turn as it Tackles. A few Rock Tombs takes it out and he wastes his own Super Potion in it. Next up is Scyther again! D: Go, Victoire! (Lv. 14)

 

He uses Focus Energy? Wut? Scyther has no freakin’ chance; one Rock Throw and he’s toast! Victoire reaches Lv. 15! Magnitude ahoy! Victoire mops up Bugsy’s Lv. 15 Kakuna with little problem. Bugsy, your trainers were bad enough. But you’re a Leader! You have no right to still be carrying around freaking cocoon pokemon!

 

That… was close. I almost lost Felix! D: In fact, I’m pretty sure it was just luck that I didn’t; if the RNG was feeling a bit crueler, I’m sure Scyther could have shaved off that last 1HP. I’ve got to be more careful; I knew keeping Felix in was a risk and I still took it!


Regardless, the Hive Badge and U-Turn TM are now mine. And next time, we continue our journey. Stay tuned!



Current Teammates: Felix (Totodile), Carmen (Rattata), Franklin (Flaaffy), Emilia (Gastly), Victoire (Geodude), Thomas (Slowpoke)

Nuzlocke Adventure 10: Whiney's Miltank

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 17, 2014, 11:16 AM


THE RULES:

1—All pokemon must be nicknamed.

2—I must attempt to catch the first pokemon I see in any route or area. I may catch no others in that area.

3—If a pokemon faints, it is considered “dead” and may no longer be used. I will release them from the next PC.

4—Legendaries cannot be caught or used.

5—The Pokewalker cannot be used.

6—If the first encounter is a duplicate of a pokemon I already have, I may ignore it and re-try for a new one. After three re-tries, however, I must catch the fourth one even if it is a dupe.

7—Gift pokemon, such as Bill’s Eevee or the Tyrogue from the Karate King, can be accepted and used and do not count under the “first encounter” rule. Forced encounters, such as Sudowoodo and the Red Gyarados, however, do count under the “first encounter” rule.

8—In-game trades are acceptable, but out-of-game trades, even to make pokemon such as Haunter or Graveler evolve, are not.

9—The Daycare Center cannot be used to breed, but it can be used to level up pokemon.

10—If all pokemon in my party faint, or if I am in a situation where I need to use a move like Cut or Surf to progress but have no pokemon that can use these moves and cannot obtain one without breaking the rules, I lose and my adventure ends.

Deaths so far: 1

Badges so far: 2

Goldenrod City

It’s time. Every single one of my main and buffer teammates are lv. 18, except for Kenya who is lv. 20. Regarding party setup for the Gym, I’ve exchanged Emilia for Kenya, since Emilia’s only damaging move is resisted by the whole Gym, and Thomas for Aaron, since Aaron’s faster and has twice the Sp. Atk; he might be useful for a last-minute sledgehammer against Whitney. I’ve got healing items and others packed away. It’s time to take on a fat cow—and her Miltank too! (Oh! Burn!)

 

I won’t pretend I’m not nervous… I have Carmen in the lead. I might be able to raise her a couple of levels and get her evolved before the boss. The first trainer has nothing but Sentrets; Carmen OHKOs them all with Hyper Fang. The next trainer’s Meowth gives us a bit of trouble but Carmen pulls through.

 

Carmen pwns the next trainer, and then we’ve got one more before Whitney. Will she make it to her evolution…?

 

Success! Carmen just makes it in time for Whitney! Say hello to my brand new Raticate!

 

I return to the pokemon center to heal, and I also rearrange my party. I can’t deny the feeling of sinking dread in my chest! :c Please let everyone pull through it okay.

 

And with that…

 

BOSS: Gym Leader Whitney

“I’m warning you—I’m good!” I know, Whitney. That’s what I’m afraid of.

 

Again the awesome music makes its appearance. Now its frentic desperation feels ominous…

Clefairy Lv. 17 versus Kenya Lv. 20. I’ve decided to start strong. Go, Aerial Ace! She uses Doubleslap, doing minimal damage. Another Aerial Ace from me brings Clefairy within a sliver of death; will she waste her potion here?

 

She does! Kenya shaves her down to half HP the very same turn she heals up, and outspeeds to knock out Celfairy before it can make a move. Success, Kenya!

 

That, however, was just the opening act. The real battle… begins now!!

 

Whitney sends out Miltank, Lv. 19! Go, Victoire! I buff my Geodude with an X Defend first turn. Stomp only does five damage! Next turn I use an X Attack.

 

Now… MAGNITUDE!

 

Magnitude 8… no, it only takes away about a third of her HP! Still, with my defense buff and a few Super Potions, I should be able to outlast her!

 

Gah! Stupid flinchhax with Stomp keeps stealing my turns. I have to heal up…

 

Curses! Whitney’s packing a second Super Potion! I almost had her!

 

Whitney keeps whittling me down with Stomp. Those flinches are wasting a lot of turns… I’ve also had some bad luck with Magnitude. A lot of fives.

 

Oh! I finally got a high number; she’s in the red! I think she’s out of potions, but will she use Milk Drink?

 

No, Stomp again! Please don’t flinch, please don’t flinch… YES!! Victoire did it! Miltank is down, and I didn’t lose anyone! And Victoire leveled up to 19!

 

The Plain Badge and Attract TM are mine. Huzzah!

 

With this, one of the biggest obstacles in the game is out of the way. I feel so much better! Next time, we’ll continue our journey and finally get rid of that squiggly tree. Stay tuned!

Current Teammates: Felix (Croconaw), Carmen (Raticate), Franklin (Flaaffy), Victoire (Geodude), Kenya (Spearow), Aaron (Kadabra)
