Hahaha quite ur whining bro, it makes it all the more interesting, thats all. Just be kind to your Fluffy, it shall replace you soon. lmfaoWell, since I've begun my challenges, I intend to make a daily post about the happenings of said challenge, so... summary!
With my first day of my challenge coming to a close. I didn't make much progress, but hey, I'm happy I finally started it.
Owned rivals, plenty of random encounters of the non-final fantasy variety, the usual. And of course, I made it to Striaton Gym. I chose Oshawott just because, so Cilan's Pansage was my opponent. Fluffy the Swablu (Storm... -.-') cleaned up the gym trainers easy, and against Cilan, it's sing only missed once, miraculously. Cilan's Lillipup was a cinch when it was put to sleep; but it was threatening if Sing had missed a second time, since anything with +2 at this point in the game would hurt. Luckily, once asleep, it didn't pose any threat, and was beaten down by my blue bird.
Pansage was in the same vote, except Sing didn't miss. Peck'd it to death, and the Trio Badge was quickly mine. Easiest time I've had with the first gym so far, lol. And ironically, these're the worst pokemon I've taken to said first gym, ever.
I ****ing hate Swablu, though... Erratic EXP growth is ****ing terrible. Trapinch was leveling up practically four times as fast as it, for god's sake. .-. It's a weak pokemon, it grows incredibly slowly for in-game, and it's movepool is subpar. Ugh, Storm. I ugh you. 'Least Trapinch is cleaning up, since it actually has 100 Base Attack, which is just wrecking everything. Why couldn't Flygon of been really fast, or somewhat more powerful, though... ... ... Then it wouldn't be an inferior-everything to the OU dragons... Ah well.
