Ok, but I'm gonna beat Alder anyway.
In Fortree city, I went to Steven, murdered the Keckleon, got the Scope thing-a-ma-jig, caught a Marill for a waterfall and dive slave, and got inside the gym. I beat a few trainers on the route too. I owned the whole gym (except for Skarmory) with my newly learned Ice Beam and my not so newly learned Rock Tomb. (I hate how Ice Beam has 10 PP) and won the badge. During the battle, Kiproy reached LV. 46 and learned Protect! Another permanent move! Nothing of note on route 120, so on to route 121! On the way, I realized I should catch a Duskull for a Flash slave, so I caught one. Yay! In Lilycove city, I beat up Brendan again, Ice Beam his Swellow, Ice Beam his Grovyle, Surf his Numel, and Mud Shot his Wailmer. Why don't they sell PP ups in the Dept. Store!?!?! I need them for Ice Beam! Oh well. I bought a few Calcium to boost Kiproy's Sp. Atk a little. I also sold a metric crap ton of my Items. On route 121, I found a SHINY ODDISH. This is literally my first shiny besides the Gyarados at the Lake of Rage. WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE DURING A SINGLE POKEMON CHALLENGE!?!?!?!? WHYYYYYY?!?!? I killed it with Marill, not knowing that once you use Rollout, you can't switch out or anything. ADHJASFHKJLAKSFJAKSJFH I'm so sad right now. I went to Mount Pyre, and stopped because I was too depressed.
