Nuzlocke Adventure 21: Crumbling Stone

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 23, 2014, 4:55 PM


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.

Goldenrod Underground

Okay, we’re here to beat down Team Rocket and save the director! But first, what’s this Kimono Girl doing here? Her dialogue is as such: “Cryptic enigma! I know more than I’m letting on! Ohohohoho!” (slightly paraphrased)

 

Down the stairs and Silver interrupts us. What the hell, dude? I thought you were going off to leave me to fight Team Rocket while you got your ass kicked by Lance Bass or whatever. You wanna “repay your debts?” Buddy, you can freaking try!

 

BOSS: Silver

Silver sends out Golbat lv. 32; I lead with Victoire, lv. 31. Golbat gets off a Confuse Ray (of course) and Victoire can’t move because of confusion like a whole lot of freaking times in a row (also of course.) I’m forced to switch to Franklin, lv. 34, who owns with Discharge.

 

Silver’s next pokemon is Meganium, lv. 34. Finally evolved your starter, did you? I send out Kenya, lv. 32. Aerial Ace actually doesn’t manage to take down even half his health, and then it proceeds to trip me up with Reflect, Synthesis, and Poisonpowder. Eugh… well, two can play at the status game! Go, Laika, lv. 31! Confuse Ray it first off, then start putting that flinchax to good use. It gets off a Petal Dance and yikes, that did ridiculous damage! D: Laika almost died!

 

I switch to Franklin to use Thunder Wave for a more permanent debilitation. It’s confused from fatigue, so hopefully it doesn’t launch another Petal Dance! Dammit, it hits me on the switch. I have to waste a turn healing but I manage to paralyze.

 

With that done I switch back to Kenya. Meganium now starts trying to stall the inevitable with Synthesis but Aerial Ace eventually pulls through on a crit. Wow! That was… actually pretty difficult!

 

Silver’s next pokemon is Magnemite lv. 30 (not –ton. –mite.) Despite the fact that she’s still hurting from Golbat, I send in Victoire as she has enough HP to endure a lone Sonicboom. It turns out to be a moot point, as she outspeeds (seriously? Outsped by a Graveler… ouch) and OHKOs with Magnitude.

 

After that is a lv. 34 Sneasel. Felix is lv. 31—go! It uses Faint Attack for small damage and Felix knocks down over half its health with Surf. One more and it faints. Silver’s last pokemon is Haunter, lv. 32. I send out Aaron, lv. 33. Despite the fact that Aaron’s at a type disadvantage, I’m confident he can outspeed and OHKO with a Choice Specs-boosted Psybeam. My prediction proves correct, and Silver is defeated!

 

…most of his pokemon were pushovers as usual, but that Meganium proved to be pretty tough. O_o Good job! Silver angsts a bit and wanders off. I go heal up my team and return to the underground.

 

“You show up here, you’re nothing but a victim!” says a Team Rocket member whose team consists of one solitary Rattata. Someone’s getting victimized here, and it ain’t me. The guy after him also has a Rattata. What is it with you people?! Mixed among the Rockets are some common Burglars. Are you guys interns or…?

 

After the mandatory doors-and-buttons puzzle, I enter the underground warehouse, snagging goodies like an Ultra Ball and the Sleep Talk TM along the way. Near the end is the director, but who else do I spy there?

 

Hyuck-hyuck-hyuck! It’s the Rocket with the dopey laugh! [: I love this guy so much! Okay, time to talk with the director. He gives me the Card Key. Time to end this!

 

Radio Tower

The Card Key opens the shutters on the third floor nicely enough. “Why did the door open? Did you have something to do with this?” No, it just sort of happened all on its own and I was there. What do you think?

 

The next floor up, a familiar face appears…

 

BOSS: Executive Proton

Proton’s first pokemon is Golbat, lv. 28. I lead with Laika, lv. 32. I get the feeling that a Confuse Ray is heading my way, so I pre-empt with one of my own! My suspicion’s correct; the Golbat is confused but launches Confuse Ray regardless. Laika gets off a Stomp while Golbat hurts itself, and another Stomp the turn after sends it packing.

 

Proton’s next pokemon is Weezing, lv. 33. I think we all know lv. 34 Aaron’s gonna one-shot him with Psybeam… ;D

 

Another Executive waits for us one turn up. It’s Ariana, ready for a rematch!

 

BOSS: Executive Ariana

She leads with Arbok, lv. 32, and I send out Franklin, lv. 34. It paralyzes me with Glare but Discharge cleans up the problem nicely enough. She switches in Vileplume lv. 32. Kenya’s the same level and I send her in. Fly somehow misses (95% accuracy… sure…) but after healing from the Sleep Powder she hits me with I KO it anyway. Her final pokemon is Murkrow, lv. 32; I return Franklin to the field. One Discharge aaaaaannnnddd… done.

 

Hmm, Ariana seems to share a similar hair color and mean personality with a certain someone we know… just saying. She’s the right age to be his mom and everything.

 

Only one Rocket remains for us to squash. Up the elevator we go, and the big bad boss waits for us.

 

BOSS: Executive Archer

So many bosses, so little time! Archer leads with a lv. 35 Houndour, and I lead with Victoire, lv. 32. Seriously, level 35? Don’t they evolve into Houndoom at level 24? What are you doing, man?

 

Houndour gets disgustingly lucky with flinches from Bite but a single Rock Blast annihilates it once I manage to launch an attack. Victoire levels up to 33 and learns… wait for it… Earthquake! OMG yay!

 

Archer switches in a lv. 35 Koffing and I switch in my designated Poison slayer, aka lv. 34 Aaron. Seriously, just guess what happens. Archer’s last pokemon is a lv. 38 Houndoom. I really want to give Earthquake a test drive, so I switch back to Victoire. Go, use Earth—NOOOOOO NO NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOO it got a critical hit with Bite and killed her! I… I can’t… Victoire! She was one of my best pokemon… she’d just learned Earthquake and…

 

I was going to take her to endgame and beyond! You… you! I’m going to—!! Felix, take him down! SURF!

 

Felix does it… Team Rocket is defeated… but the cost of our victory was nothing less than victory herself.

Current Teammates: Felix (Feraligatr), Franklin (Ampharos), Kenya (Fearow), Laika (Stantler), Aaron (Kadabra)

Mahogany Town

Jeez, Professor, calm down! I’ll answer the phone! Uh-huh… uh-huh… radio broadcast… yeah, mm-hmm… Team Rocket… yes, fine, I’ll go check it out.

 

Goldenrod City

Well, despite the fact that armed thugs are wandering around everywhere, nothing seems too out of place. Even the happy music is the same! One detail I like is how the Goldenrod Gym trainers are at least trying to battle Team Rocket. What’re your excuses, Pryce and Bugsy?

 

Okay, let’s go!

 

Golderod Underground

We have to be wearing a Team Rocket uniform to enter, so let’s do it! The way the Rocket cap’s brim sticks out front while my own juts behind is fairly ridiculous… but then, that’s the point! I go around and mess with all the townsfolk in Goldenrod before returning to my mission. Gra-ha-ha-ha!

 

Highlights from dicking around as a Team Rocket member:


“Mom told me to stay away from people in black suits.” “Be it Team Rocket, ‘Team Pocket,’ or whatever… leave me alone! I’m busy shopping and have no time to waste!” “What kind of business would a Team Rocket member have here? We aren’t selling sanity here.” “For a young one like you to decide to become a member of Team Rocket… that’s great, kiddo!” “You better listen to me. Quit being a Team Rocket member already!”

 

My absolute favorite, however, has to be this from the trade receptionist in the pokemon center: “Our apologies for the inconvenience… but people wearing black clothing, people who engage in unlawful activities, and people who are members of Team Rocket are barred from participating.” I can get the latter two, but are you telling me that the pokemon centers discriminate against goths? That’s freaking hilarious!

 

Okay, enough doofing around. Time to tackle the mission for real.

 

Radio Tower

Silver? What are you doing here? Go home! You’re too weak to be here! >8U And he somehow undresses me while spinning me around… and I’m fully clothed in my old outfit after he’s done. Suuuure. And the guard instantly targets me when it’s over and done with and not Silver. That’s not fair!

 

And Silver wanders off. Yes, heaven forbid you actually help solve a problem for once in your life. Nerd.

 

The Rockets on the next floor up are pretty weak. It’s sad, really. Franklin is a bit overleveled from his Gym domination—the boss killer doing his thing, you know how it is—so I’m using this opportunity to give everyone else a shot to level up. One guy even uses nothing but Rattata. Just pathetic.

 

The third floor is more of the same, with a few Grimer and Koffing and other unevolved pokemon. Most of them are in the early 20s for levels, which makes them almost a full ten levels weaker than I. One guy sends out a Weezing and I’m a bit worried that a Selfdestruct or Explosion is coming my way, but Laika’s flinchax pulls through once again.

 

I need a card key to open a door, but I seriously doubt that Victoire or Felix couldn’t bust it down if they really tried. Well, ho hum. Let’s go see the director.

 

There’s a Rocket grunt crushing on Proton one level up. I’d forgotten about her. She goes down just like everyone else, and I Stomp (literally) all over a Porygon used by a nearby Scientist. How many of those do you see wielded by trainers in the games?

 

On the fifth floor, I can see Ariana lurking in an as-yet unreachable part of the building. That’s not what we’re here for, however. No, let’s talk to the director. Oh surprise surprise, he’s actually a boss!

 

BOSS: Executive Petrel

I send out Aaron lv. 31 and he sends out a lv. 30 Koffing. Fun fact: I’ve equipped Aaron with Choice Specs due to the fact that I probably won’t ever do anything other than use his strongest Psychic-type move when he’s on the field. I’m sure he outspeeds any Koffing and Weezing, too. How’s your team of all Poison pokemon looking, Petrel? Aaron OHKOs Koffing with Psybeam.

 

Petrel sends out lv. 32 Weezing and Aaron OHKOs.

 

Petrel sends out lv. 30 Koffing and Aaron OHKOs.

 

Petrel sends out another lv. 30 Koffing and Aaron OHKOs.

 

Petrel sends out another lv. 30 Koffing and Aaron OHKOs.

 

Petrel sends out another lv. 30 Koffing and Aaron OHKOs.

 

…that was pathetic as usual, Petrel.

 

Fun fact: Aaron started that fight at lv. 31 and ended it lv. 33. With the Basement Key in hand, next time we’ll enter the Goldenrod Underground and find the director. Stay tuned.

Current Teammates: Felix (Feraligatr), Franklin (Ampharos), Victoire (Graveler), Kenya (Fearow), Laika (Stantler), Aaron (Kadabra)

Route 43

Though Mahogany’s Gym is now open, beating Team Rocket has opened other paths for us. First, if you enter the guard house here and talk to the man there, he gives us the Sludge Bomb TM. Great!

 

Lake of Rage

There are lots of trainers to battle here now that the crisis has passed. Let’s fight them! Our first opponent sends out a lv. 27 Gyarados, which is fairly frightening. Thankfully, the rain in this area ensures a guaranteed Thunder from Franklin.

 

What’s the next guy have to say? “No matter what I do, all I catch are the same pokemon.” Is this our mandatory once-a-game Magikarp guy? Yep, sure is.

 

Oh, an Ace Trainer! Someone who breaks the mold! She’s packing a Ninetales, which is cool. I kind of wish I’d caught a Vulpix. Well, our only chances have passed, I think. Too bad. :c

 

That’s it for the main part of the lake, but if you derp around on Route 43, you can find a path that leads to the watery maze in the back. Let’s see if we can get there.

 

Now I’m at the maze. I preferred it in the original games, where it was just some woods (it’s still like that on Wednesdays, complete with another Ace Trainer and a few more items.) We make it through and scores some items, including a Red Flute and the Secret Power and Hidden Power TMs.

 

Mahogany Town 

Now that all that’s out of the way, it’s time to challenge Pryce. Prepare…

 

A funny detail I haven’t noticed, the Gym Guide totally talks up Pryce as this uber badass and dismisses you out of hand. Hilarious! And a little bit sad… :c

 

I know exactly what I’ll be seeing in this Gym: Swinub, Seel/Dewgong, Shellder/Cloyster, and Jynx. I’ve got it all planned out: Felix for the first, Franklin for the middle two, and Laika for the last. Let’s do this!

 

Felix sweeps some Swinub right off the bat. Next up is the Jynx, and it’s lv. 29… go, Laika! Pffft, it does pathetic damage with Wake-up Slap despite a type advantage, and wastes its next turn on Mean Look. Laaaaame~

 

The puzzles are pretty easy to solve. I remember in the original, though, all you had to do was skate in a spiral… at least this requires you to think a bit outside the box. Oh, hey! One of the losing trainers says “The strongest usually don’t look very strong. I think you fit that description.” What a backhanded son of a—!!

 

One more trainer wielding a lv. 29 Dewgong and the battle for the badge is upon us.

 

BOSS: Gym Leader Pryce

 

Of all the redesigns in this game, Pryce probably got the best one. He went from a hunched-over old geezer with a dorky sweater to a guy with a classy coat and sweater combo that sway impressively in the arctic wind.

 

Okay, battle begin!

 

He leads with a lv. 30 Seel. Underwhelming… and technically not even an Ice-type. Go, Franklin lv. 33. Thunderpunch—I win, what a surprise.

 

Next up he send up Piloswine, lv. 34. Despite its level hike this thing is no threat to Felix, lv. 30, and his Surf. Piloswine only goes one turn and uses it to start up a hailstorm.

 

Pryce’s last pokemon is a lv. 32 Dewgong. I switch back to Franklin and OHKO with Thunder. That… was the most underwhelming Gym Battle ever. You should be ashamed, Pryce.

 

However, the parting words he gives are far more meaningful to a nuzlocker… “When the ice and snow melt, spring arrives. You and your pokemon will be together for many years to come. Cherish your time together.” I can only hope so, Pryce.

 

For victory, we receive the Glacier Badge and Hail TM. We’re approaching the end. Stay tuned.

Current Teammates: Felix (Feraligatr), Franklin (Ampharos), Victoire (Graveler), Kenya (Fearow), Laika (Stantler), Aaron (Kadabra)

Lake of Rage

Now that we’ve caught Noelle, the fellow at the edge of the lake introduces himself as Lance Bass. He thinks that someone forced it to evolve, which is weird because it was ten levels above the usual Magikarp evolution… eh, whatever. He wants to investigate the souvenir shop and invites me along. Sure, let’s go!

 

Eh? Lyra? Why are you calling now? And to talk about Route 47? That’s last entry’s news! Get with the program, girl!

 

Before we return to Mahogany, we have one stop to make.

 

Route 30

I pawn off the Red Scale we got from Noelle to Mr. Pokemon. In return he gives us the Exp. Share! Now it’ll be much easier to train buffer pokemon and new additions. Now, to Mahogany!

 

Mahogany Town

Lance Bass said to follow him into the shop, so that’s what we’ll do. Wow, as I enter he Hyper Beams some poor schmuck across the room! Ease up, there! He intimidates the other guy into stepping aside and reveals the stairs. Now we split up! Okay!

 

Team Rocket HQ

Right off the bat, we get two back-to-back Team Rocket battles when we step in front of the Persian statue. The grunts aren’t exactly a challenge, though.

 

I know Team Rocket favors the Poison type, so Victoire and Aaron are going to be my weapons of choice here. I’m keeping them in the forefront. Also, while I could trip the switch to shut off the sensors in the statues, the grunts give cheap, easy XP, so I may as well fight them all. I’ll come back when that’s over and done with.

 

…well, that was tedious. Still, got a few levels out of the deal. I also beat a few other Grunts and Scientists on this level. One even told me that this place used to be a ninja hideout! I didn’t know ninja were so… high-tech. O:

 

Down the stairs and Lance Bass is waiting for us. He heals us up, which is nice, because Victoire and Aaron were running low on PP. Then he darts off. Bye bye bye… We pass in front of a suspicious pair of doors and floor some guy with two Venonants.

 

Down even further and it’s Lance Bass again! Two passwords needed to enter the boss’s room, huh? Why not just have your Dragonite break it down?

 

A researcher says he used to work for Silph, manufacturer of Poke Balls and one of the biggest corporations in the world, but ditched them to work for Team Rocket, a crime syndicate missing its boss that’s been on its last legs for three years. How’s that working out for you, by the way? Oh, so his experiment was a radio signal to drive pokemon insane.

 

…what a dick! D:

 

A little further up, another says she won’t hand over the password to a “weakling.” Wait, Silver’s here? She’s a pushover just like her Ekans and Gloom and upon defeat, she surrenders the password: Slowpoketail. How… predictable. Still, we need one more.

 

A little to left and…

 

Hyuck-hyuck-hycuk! The best grunt in the history of the pokemon franchise, bar none! Don’t give me any of that Engrish-speaking Rocket Grunt crap. Mister Dorky Laugh over here is where it’s at! He tells me the second password is “Raticatetail.” As un-appetizing as Slowpoketail sounded, Raticatetail just sounds even more so.

 

“I don’t care that pokemon are hurt by our experiment,” says Scientist Mitch. Wow, guy makes no bones on where he stands. ‘S brutal.

 

Up north they leave a TM just out in the open, begging to be *ahem* snatched. You get one guess what the move is! Further along we get a member of Team Rocket who actually appears to have a conscience. He attacks us, sure, but at least he’s apologetic about having to “eliminate” a kid! He leads with a Rattata, though, so the only one getting eliminated is him.

 

Up some stairs and we get another TM! The Rockets are just throwing these out like Halloween candy! Now we’re at the boss’s office, but Silver shows up to whine at us some more. Turns out he got whomped by Lance Bass and thinks he can beat him by getting “stronger pokemon.” Yeah, Silver, sure.

 

Up in the office, Giovanni himself threatens us! No, wait, it’s this loser instead.

 

BOSS: Executive Petrel

I lead with Laika, lv. 28, and Petrel opens with a lv. 22 Zubat—wait, level 22? At this stage in the game?! You’re a freaking boss, Petrel! Your pokemon are at the level of the third-to-last Gym Leader I’ve faced! Of all the—I just—really?!

 

Laika OHKOs it with Stomp, surprising nobody, and he sends in Koffing, lv. 22. Another flimsy underevolved pokemon? I send in Aaron lv. 30 and clean house with Psybeam. His last pokemon is a Raticate—lv. 24 this time, woo-hoo. Still weaker than Morty’s strongest pokemon. You know, that guy I beat three badges ago? I return Laika to the field. “Hey, you’re good!” Petrel says as he switches in Raticate. No, you’re just weak!

 

Do I even need to tell you that Laika owns this thing? I mean honestly.

 

After the fight, Petrel exposits about Giovanni in case someone out there didn’t play the Kanto games and runs off. Murkrow crows out “Hail Giovanni” and darts off.

 

CATCH THAT KROW

 

Murkrow unlocks the transmitter room for us, but as we enter, some woman in white accosts us! She’s Ariana, the interim leader while Giovanni is away, and she’s taking none of our crap! She even brought a Grunt to back her up! (Um, good for her?) However, Lance Bass shows up to even the odds. Time for another boss battle!

 

BOSS: Executive Ariana

The Grunt sends out a Lv. 18 Drowzee, Ariana sends out a lv. 25 Arbok, I send out Kenya, lv. 30, and Lance Bass sends out a level 40 Dragonite. Uh… I think we win.

 

Dragonite leads with Thunder and KOs the Arbok, and Kenya’s Return does the same to Drowzee. Ariana and the Grunt send out a lv. 27 Murkrow and a lv. 20 Grimer, respectively.

 

Dragonite flies up (he wasted a move slot on Fly?!) and Kenya almost takes out Murkrow with Return. They targeted Dragonite and got nowhere.

 

Fly makes mincemeat out of Murkrow and Aerial Ace annihilates Grimer despite Minimize. Dragonite’s Twister almost brings down her lv. 25 Gloom and Kenya polishes it off with another Aerial Ace. Kenya even reaches lv. 31!

 

Ariana darts off after the battle; looks like Team Rocket has given up the hideout as a lost cause. Wow, Lance Bass! The two of us were really… NSYNC *shot*

 

Our last task is to make the Electrode faint. I’m switching Victoire to the front, as I think they know Selfdestruct…

 

Huh. You know, this is technically a new area and the Electrode are technically wild pokemon. Let’s see if I can catch the first one!

 

I manage to catch it. I name it Jackson. “Serious nature. Loves to eat.” Victoire quickly takes out the other two with Magnitude. Lance Bass rewards us with the Whirlpool HM, which is up there with Cut and Fog Clear in terms of trash HM moves.


And with that, we’ve driven off the threat of Team Rocket! Now that guy in front of the Gym should be gone. Next time, we take on Pryce—the Teacher of Winter’s Harshness. Stay tuned!

Current Teammates: Felix (Feraligatr), Franklin (Ampharos), Victoire (Graveler), Kenya (Fearow), Laika (Stantler), Aaron (Kadabra)

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.

Goldenrod Underground

Okay, we’re here to beat down Team Rocket and save the director! But first, what’s this Kimono Girl doing here? Her dialogue is as such: “Cryptic enigma! I know more than I’m letting on! Ohohohoho!” (slightly paraphrased)

 

Down the stairs and Silver interrupts us. What the hell, dude? I thought you were going off to leave me to fight Team Rocket while you got your ass kicked by Lance Bass or whatever. You wanna “repay your debts?” Buddy, you can freaking try!

 

BOSS: Silver

Silver sends out Golbat lv. 32; I lead with Victoire, lv. 31. Golbat gets off a Confuse Ray (of course) and Victoire can’t move because of confusion like a whole lot of freaking times in a row (also of course.) I’m forced to switch to Franklin, lv. 34, who owns with Discharge.

 

Silver’s next pokemon is Meganium, lv. 34. Finally evolved your starter, did you? I send out Kenya, lv. 32. Aerial Ace actually doesn’t manage to take down even half his health, and then it proceeds to trip me up with Reflect, Synthesis, and Poisonpowder. Eugh… well, two can play at the status game! Go, Laika, lv. 31! Confuse Ray it first off, then start putting that flinchax to good use. It gets off a Petal Dance and yikes, that did ridiculous damage! D: Laika almost died!

 

I switch to Franklin to use Thunder Wave for a more permanent debilitation. It’s confused from fatigue, so hopefully it doesn’t launch another Petal Dance! Dammit, it hits me on the switch. I have to waste a turn healing but I manage to paralyze.

 

With that done I switch back to Kenya. Meganium now starts trying to stall the inevitable with Synthesis but Aerial Ace eventually pulls through on a crit. Wow! That was… actually pretty difficult!

 

Silver’s next pokemon is Magnemite lv. 30 (not –ton. –mite.) Despite the fact that she’s still hurting from Golbat, I send in Victoire as she has enough HP to endure a lone Sonicboom. It turns out to be a moot point, as she outspeeds (seriously? Outsped by a Graveler… ouch) and OHKOs with Magnitude.

 

After that is a lv. 34 Sneasel. Felix is lv. 31—go! It uses Faint Attack for small damage and Felix knocks down over half its health with Surf. One more and it faints. Silver’s last pokemon is Haunter, lv. 32. I send out Aaron, lv. 33. Despite the fact that Aaron’s at a type disadvantage, I’m confident he can outspeed and OHKO with a Choice Specs-boosted Psybeam. My prediction proves correct, and Silver is defeated!

 

…most of his pokemon were pushovers as usual, but that Meganium proved to be pretty tough. O_o Good job! Silver angsts a bit and wanders off. I go heal up my team and return to the underground.

 

“You show up here, you’re nothing but a victim!” says a Team Rocket member whose team consists of one solitary Rattata. Someone’s getting victimized here, and it ain’t me. The guy after him also has a Rattata. What is it with you people?! Mixed among the Rockets are some common Burglars. Are you guys interns or…?

 

After the mandatory doors-and-buttons puzzle, I enter the underground warehouse, snagging goodies like an Ultra Ball and the Sleep Talk TM along the way. Near the end is the director, but who else do I spy there?

 

Hyuck-hyuck-hyuck! It’s the Rocket with the dopey laugh! [: I love this guy so much! Okay, time to talk with the director. He gives me the Card Key. Time to end this!

 

Radio Tower

The Card Key opens the shutters on the third floor nicely enough. “Why did the door open? Did you have something to do with this?” No, it just sort of happened all on its own and I was there. What do you think?

 

The next floor up, a familiar face appears…

 

BOSS: Executive Proton

Proton’s first pokemon is Golbat, lv. 28. I lead with Laika, lv. 32. I get the feeling that a Confuse Ray is heading my way, so I pre-empt with one of my own! My suspicion’s correct; the Golbat is confused but launches Confuse Ray regardless. Laika gets off a Stomp while Golbat hurts itself, and another Stomp the turn after sends it packing.

 

Proton’s next pokemon is Weezing, lv. 33. I think we all know lv. 34 Aaron’s gonna one-shot him with Psybeam… ;D

 

Another Executive waits for us one turn up. It’s Ariana, ready for a rematch!

 

BOSS: Executive Ariana

She leads with Arbok, lv. 32, and I send out Franklin, lv. 34. It paralyzes me with Glare but Discharge cleans up the problem nicely enough. She switches in Vileplume lv. 32. Kenya’s the same level and I send her in. Fly somehow misses (95% accuracy… sure…) but after healing from the Sleep Powder she hits me with I KO it anyway. Her final pokemon is Murkrow, lv. 32; I return Franklin to the field. One Discharge aaaaaannnnddd… done.

 

Hmm, Ariana seems to share a similar hair color and mean personality with a certain someone we know… just saying. She’s the right age to be his mom and everything.

 

Only one Rocket remains for us to squash. Up the elevator we go, and the big bad boss waits for us.

 

BOSS: Executive Archer

So many bosses, so little time! Archer leads with a lv. 35 Houndour, and I lead with Victoire, lv. 32. Seriously, level 35? Don’t they evolve into Houndoom at level 24? What are you doing, man?

 

Houndour gets disgustingly lucky with flinches from Bite but a single Rock Blast annihilates it once I manage to launch an attack. Victoire levels up to 33 and learns… wait for it… Earthquake! OMG yay!

 

Archer switches in a lv. 35 Koffing and I switch in my designated Poison slayer, aka lv. 34 Aaron. Seriously, just guess what happens. Archer’s last pokemon is a lv. 38 Houndoom. I really want to give Earthquake a test drive, so I switch back to Victoire. Go, use Earth—NOOOOOO NO NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOO it got a critical hit with Bite and killed her! I… I can’t… Victoire! She was one of my best pokemon… she’d just learned Earthquake and…

 

I was going to take her to endgame and beyond! You… you! I’m going to—!! Felix, take him down! SURF!

 

Felix does it… Team Rocket is defeated… but the cost of our victory was nothing less than victory herself.

Current Teammates: Felix (Feraligatr), Franklin (Ampharos), Kenya (Fearow), Laika (Stantler), Aaron (Kadabra)
