Spoiler Alert!I got my Zigzagoon egg and started training it in Floccessy Ranch. I've decided not to get 252 EVs straight away. It'll make me really overleveled and therefore there will be no challenge. I got about 50 attack EVs and a few other random ones as well before Zigzagoon evolved into Linoone.
Before battling the gym I equipped Linoone with the Pecha Berry in case I got poisoned. The 2 trainers were no match for my Linoone. I OHKOed all 4 pokemon. For Roxie's Koffing I got a critical Headbutt. Against her Whirlipede I got the flinch which allowed me to KO it in the next turn.
After the gym battle we decided to go to Pokestar Studios and make a movie. After the compulsory use of the borrowed pokemon, Linoone insisted on being in a movie! So we redid the movie using Linoone this time. The movie was awesome and someone gave me lemonade for doing such a good job!
After that I decided we should continue our adventure and sail to Castelia City. But Team Plasma got in the way and I had to chase them off first.
Once we finally got to Castelia City, we went to the gym to try and get another badge. But Burgh wasn't there. Apparently he went chasing after Team Plasma in the sewers. So we went to the sewers and found Burgh, who went back to his gym, waiting for me to challenge him. Instead of going to the gym, I decided to continue exploring the sewers. I found some Leftovers, which Linoone is now holding.
We finally decided it was time to battle Burgh. But first, a massage.
We beat all the trainers with Return which is really powerful already. Before battling Burgh I healed Linoone back to full health. Swadloon fell to a critical Return. Dwebble was more difficult as he resisted my STAB moves. I used Rock Smash a few times and Dwebble was gone. Leavanny was the most difficult due to Razor Leaf. If Burgh got a crit Razor Leaf when Linoone wasn't at full health, I would have to restart the challenge. Luckily there were no crits and I beat Burgh. Just.
I healed Linoone and went on to route 4 where I battled the breeder a few times as she gave me good EVs. I got to level 28 doing this. Rock Smash took care of Colress' pokemon.
