Made my way to Azalea t' nab Badge #2 and scare off them Pokemon-abusing Rockets. Down in Slowpoke Well I caught my next team member; a Slowpoke. I've been compared t' this derpy Psychic type more times than I'd like, so I humorously gave it the nickname I use for myself most often: Dirge. Due to it's low level I had t' count on Tlaloc to beat Bugsy and his damnable Scyther. Since I taught it Rock Tomb, even the mightiest of unevolved Bug-types couldn't break Tlaloc's defenses in time. His other two metamorphosing Bugs didn't stand a chance obviously. Hive Badge get!
Smacked my sore-loser of a rival about and made my way t' Goldenrod; however, I stopped in Ilex forest t' teach Dirge Headbutt for obtaining my next Poke. I knew for a fact Pokes knocked outta trees in National Park are a higher level than those in Ilex forest, so I went on up there t' find my third team member: an Exeggcute... which was a pain t' find. The very first Exeggcute had an undesirable Sassy nature. The next two were both Impish, so I was forced t' catch even more... ._.
From there, it literally took me half a ****in' hour just t' find one more... and ya know what? An untimely crit offed it. Just my 'Karp damn luck. -_-; I found another one quickly at the least; and quickly, it was also KO'd by a crit.
"... ... ... I ****in' quit."
After a temporary rage quit
coffee break from Nocturnal's trollin', my internet which was out finally fixed itself. This allowed me t' finally check the Sassy Exeggcute's IVs; and ya know what? They were good. REALLY good. I TORMENTED MYSELF FOR A ****ING HOUR AND A HALF FOR NOTHING!! It's catching that god damn Druddigon all over again! (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
... So I entered the Bug-Catching Contest t' put that bullshit behind me 'n improve my mood. I caught an award-winning Lv. 14 Scyther at full HP, namely for use as an HM slave, winnin' a Sun Stone in the process.
Went back t' Goldenrod and with Tlaloc's Steel-hard defenses, I easily put Whitney's whiny ass in her place. A combination of the yet-to-be-nicknamed Exeggcute's Leech Seed and Tlaloc's Hypnosis put it down with essentially no fight. After three Rock Tombs I outsped it too, allowing for the occasional flinch via Extrasensory. Couldn't'a been easier.
Plain Badge get!
Spent a lot'a time training with trainers t' get Dirge 'n Exeggcute up to Tlaloc's level as I headed on towards Ecruteak... very much wary 'n worried 'bout Morty's utterly overpowered Gengar. If I had a Normal-type, or at least somethin' that learned Shadow Claw, I wouldn't have to be catious. Sadly that ain't the case. I took 'em on without hesitation, but Tlaloc was easily 2HKO'd by Shadow Ball, cutting off only 'bout 25% of it's HP with Extrasensory... ... ... t'was my very first White Out in a Challenge, ever. Needless to say, I was mighty disgruntled.
I derped off t' train with all the trainers around and in Olivine to level up Tlaloc, not settling for anythin' but it evolving. I defeated every
trainer on Route 40 and in the Lighthouse, but was still short three levels... two trainers in Mt. Mortar later, as well as two Rare Candies, Tlaloc finally evolve. Now slightly overleveled and with a surprisingly large Attack stat; and Payback learned early via TM; I had no
intention of losin' to Morty this time.
As expected, Payback ruined Gengar in one shot, it's Shadow Ball not even a 3HKO on my dear Tlaloc. His Gastly and two Haunter didn't stand a chance obviously. Fog Badge
Revenge get! Now able t' Surf, I made my way back to Slowpoke Well and picked up a King's Rock, gave it to Dirge, then evolved it via trade. I can use Slowbro in any Challenge (not that I ever will... probably), so I decided t' evolve it into it's lesser-used evolution... that, and it still had over 10 levels t' go 'til evolving into Slowbro anyways.
All that's left is to evolve Exeggcute and catch one last Poke, then my team is finally complete.
I've been watchin' the Pokeathlon's shop hopin' to find a Leaf Stone for sale, but haven't had any luck for the past three bloody days. Hopin' I can get it tomorrow... but for now, that's a wrap. Saved here. The team is as follows.
Tlaloc (Bronzong), Lv. 33 @ Shell Bell
Rain Dance (it's moveset is already complete
Dirge (Slowking), Lv. 24 @ Mystic Water
Exeggcute, Lv. 25 @ Miracle Seed
I am disappoint it takes Exeggcute ages t' learn Psychic STAB (two more levels just for Confusion)... it won't get Psychic 'til I make my way to Saffron City neither.
