Grabbin' my new useless evolution of a Magikarp from the box (should'a just left it, really), made my way off to the Rocket hideout just north of Mahogany's center. Crushed all the Rockets responding to the security alarms, crushed every other rocket, got me some passwords and headed off to take out Petrel. He obviously didn't stand a chance; and nor did Ariana.
Turns out Pryce's team wasn't as deadly as I thought (Piloswine was only lv. 34, and his other Pokes didn't have Water moves), so I went ahead and stomped his gym trainers. He wasn't much bigger of a deal: Seel was OHKO'd, as was Dewgong. Piloswine just barely took an Earthquake, but his countering Blizzard missed; not that it'd KO Rhyhorn anyways. One more EQ, and the match is done. Glacier badge get!
Hastily traversed back to Cianwood to finally take on Chuck. Both his Primeape and Poliwrath ate an Earthquake and were done with; Poliwrath was just too low a level in comparison. Storm badge get! With Fly in hand and now taught to my Pidgey, I'm ready to go hand some more Rockets their asses. But that's for the next update; healed up 'n saved. Rhyhorn is currently lv. 44.
