And so the test run begins. Started off with Snivy 'cause Smugleaf is the bestest of starters. Lucky me the Snivy was a female, so I'll definitely be boxin' 'er for breedin' purposes in the future. Don't think I have females of any
Gen 5 starters, actually...
Caught a Lillipup and a Modest
Patrat on the way t' Accumula. No shiny this time.
Nabbed a Purrloin while traversing Route 2, completin' my four-Poke team. Level grindin' against these n00b Youngsters, I'm actually have a fair bit of bad luck already... crits everywhere. This one sunovabitch had his Patrat crit me three times in a row. ._.; Damn thing was clearly in the top percentage of rodent Pokemon.
Took on Chili without a damn care that my team was underleveled, and I certainly got a beating for it... couldn't even take down Lillipup since Snivy was only lv. 11, everyone else 8 or under. Off to the Dreamyard for some quick training I went, and came back with the team leveled up only once each ('sides Purrloin who leveled up twice). I'm just rarin' to White Out it seems.
Snivy handled Lillipup single handed since, after two Leers, Vine Whip was a 3HKO, close enough to a 2HKO to nullify the Potion Chili used and let Snivy win unscathed. Pansear used Incinerate twice whereas Snivy countered with Leer. Sadly it didn't finish Snivy off and used Work Up instead... but only once before KOin' my Grass-type. Out comes Lillipup, whom I'm hoping will finish it off with those defense drops. Sadly that wasn't the case, and Lillipup was knocked out one Tackle away from the win. Luckily, Pansear was in the red and was one Work Up short of bein' able to OHKO Patrat, and I just barely stole the win. Couldn't of gone better, as I didn't need t' grind against wild Pokes at all. Trio Badge get!
Derped back off t' the Dreamyard and did the ol' plotstuff with Team Plasma; but not before startin' my new team off by gettin' that gifted Panpour. Then caught me an Adamant Audino while searchin' for a Munna (I am deeply saddened ya get your Moonstone after
beatin' Lenora...). It won't be a match for Watchog, but it'l certainly help. Caught that there Munna 'fore headin' off to Striaton's Pokemon Center and savin'.
I'm thinkin' of havin' a team of three required instead'a four. Definitely nowhere near a point where this thought has any merit, but in retro games ya don't get introduced t' this
many species all-that quickly. Bein' forced to spread Exp. thin and balance out my team members' levels is also a slight hassle.
