Seeing as I wouldn't be able to do anything without someone who could surf, I grabbed Mudkip out of the box and used it to catch my first pokemon for the next part of this challenge. I got a level 30 Wingull, which I was happy with. I tried to teach it Surf so I could let Mudkip go back to resting but realised that Wingull can't learn Surf! So I went to the desert area and levelled him up so he could evolve. Once he evolved, I taught him Surf and used a few repels to catch my next pokemon, a level 32 Tentacool. With my team of 2 I proceeded to the weather institute and faught off Team Aqua, evolving Tentacool and earning a Castform as a reward for my troubles
. I took the Mystic Water off Castform and gave it to Pelipper. I also taught him Ice Beam. Pelipper was able to defeat May by himself, making me wonder if I'd be able to beat Winona with only him.
I rode to Fortree city, healed, got the invisible Kecleon out of the way and battled the gym trainers. I ran beck to the pokecentre and then battled Winona.
I one hit her Swellow with Ice Beam.
Pelipper was a bit more trouble as I could only 3 hit it at best (assuming no crits). I got lucky with Ice Beam and froze it. Unfortunately Winona used a Hyper Potion so it took me a bit longer to beat it.
Skarmory was a 2 hit with Surf
Altaria managed to survive an Ice Beam, but wasn't so lucky when I used Quick Attack in the next turn.
