Herped on over t' Veilstone to mop up the gym with all-due ease. Although Croagunk was but a single level away from evolution (... why didn't I use my Rare Candy?), she was all I needed t' flatten Maylene's team. I did use Drifblim against Meditite, but details...
Cobble Badge get!
Hastily made my way down t' Route 213 to capture my last team member, a Shellos. For whatever retarded reason, it took 20 minutes just t' find one. Considerin' they're the most common Poke on the Route, that's outrageous. ._. Worse yet, it had unbearable IVs. It's highest was either Defense or HP, at 13, with every single other IV below 10. I ain't absurdly picky when it comes t' in-game Pokes, but that's simply unacceptable considerin' it's nature; Docile; was no better. So I spent another 15 minutes finding one... ... ...
... And at the very least, it has amazing IVs. Everythin' at 20 or higher, with three stats at 26+. Sp.D was a single digit, but with a Sassy nature, that's irrelevant. Disappointed as I am that it's ability was Sticky Hold, Toxicroak has Dry Skin anyways. And I definitely ain't spendin' another bundle of time just t' catch a far shittier Shellos.
After owning all the gym trainers and just one extra trainer battle t' level up Shellos, it evolved int' Gastrodon, ready t' take on Wake. But Nocturnal said no, and his Gyarados crit it immediately. Not amused. Soft reset! Startin' with Drifblim this time. Nothin' changed, another ****in' crit. Fantastic.
I've been dealin' with enough hax as is. ._. Oh look, another ****in' crit on the first move! Crasher Wake? **** that noise, he's Hacker Wake. This is just-plain bullshit. >=/ I could just wreck 'em with Toxicroak, but no. Now my mind's set, revenge for this hax must be had.
And then he gets another crit.
WHAT THE **** IS THIS?!?! D:<
With this bloody hax finally outta the way, Drifblim can actually land a Shock Wave. It promptly faints next turn knockin' Gyarados int' the red with Aftermath. Meaning Toxicroak can't finish it off with Sucker Punch.
... Arceus damnit.
After Gyarados gets it's face punched in multiple times and faints, out comes Wake's key Poke, Floatzel. Gastrodon's newly-learned Earthquake is sure t' give it a run for it's money, even bein' six levels behind it. Floatzel's Waterfall is a clean 3HKO, forcing me to heal the turn after next. Earthquake hits back just as hard, clearly gonna be a 3HKO as well. And then Waterfall crits.
SON OF A ****IN' FEEBAS
Giving into the bullshit hax I'm bein' presented with, I just Revive Gastrodon and have Toxicroak literally gain Revenge. I expect, bar another ****in' crit, Gastrodon can handle his worthless Quagsire. It uses Yawn in an attempt t' prolong my anger. Earthquake is, as before, a clean 3HKO, meanin' it'l get put to sleep... But instead'a more bullshit hax from Wake, Gastrodon vengefully scores a crit and ends the match early. That hardly makes up for the bullshit I just went through, but whatever. I'll ****in' take it. Good enough. Fen Badge get. blehhhhhhhhhhhh hax
