Lookie here, another update. Ive been handing these things out like candy lately....never mind the quadruple post.
(CK, hurry up and get back here. Youre the only person who ever replies to my updates.)
After being beaten, Venus makes a run for it. I chased her down fleets of stairs, and come across a trainer with a Shadow Gligar. I snaged it, planning to purify it later. On the way down into the....sewer, I encountered a lady who uses Swagger a lot, and had a bunch of physical attacking Pokemon. None of my other Pokemon were in good health, so it was up to Umbeon and Mantine. Mantine took a huge beating, I was honestly amazed that it didnt die. What a trooper!
Venus flees out of some subway train, and I completely missed the key she dropped for it. I wandered around for like 20 minutes before I found it.....damn. Anyways, the subway took me to the Shadow Pokemon lab, but the grunts there used a bomb to keep me out....and left behind a key for the main entrance. Idiots.
After stocking up on more items and purifying Gligar (Sting) I headed off. The trainers in the lab used many Electric type Pokemon, which sucks because I dont have any Ground moves (Yet. An Earthquake TM is supposed to be in the area, so I can teach it to my Gligar). What was worse is that Magnemite and its evolutions were common, and not counting Mantines Bubblebeam/Water Pulse, there was nothing I had that it didnt resist. Even worse then that was the abundance of the very-hard hitting Thunder. Meganium was definitely my most useful Mon in there; not only was he resistant to electricity, but he could set up Screens!
Eventually I snagged a Shadow Granbull from a Cipher Peon. I wanted Granbull (Overfang) because it had Intimidate, a very good movepool, and hits hard. Unfortunately, its very slow. Oh well.
Immediately after the alarm was set off, I got into a fight with some chick who owns a Shadow Vibrava and a Kecleon. At some point during the battle, her Kecleon nailed my Meganium with Aerial Ace....a critical one! No, my star Screen setter-upper was down! Who could ever replace it!?
Magcargo?....no, its typing blows. Altaria?....damn, it cant use screens. Ledian? No, its Defense stat is horrible. Medicham? Wait, its Defenses are too low....I miss mah Meganium....
