With the rock gym under my belt, and having enough of Oreburgh City, I made my way back to Jublife. There I stocked up on some supplies, conquered some Team Galactic Grunts, and sped through route 204, soon reaching Floroma Town.
There was virtually nothing to do here, so I then made the short journey to Valley Windworks, did what was needed, and crossed back over into flower wonderland. I made short work of team Galactic. Once again I went to Valley Windworks and completely drove out Team Galactic's presence from that area. Commander Mars was a peace of cake, my Pokemon quickly tore hers apart.
Next I made my was up through route 205 and into Eterna Forest. Chyrel the wimp and I made it through with almost no difficulty, and I made it to Eterna City! There I did a little training and then challenged the Eterna City Gym. After obliterating the trainers, I had a easy time battling Gardenia. I didn't even feel the need to use Staravia and sweep with flying-tye attacks.
Having easily and somewhat quickly obtained my second badge, I made short work of Team Galactic in their building, finding Commander Jupiter just as easy as Commander Mars.
Team so far:
Staravia lvl 20
Bibaral lvl 19
Spinda lvl 19
Aipom lvl 19
Tauros lvl 19
Glameow lvl 18
Their ends the update for now!
Floaroma town's theme is full of relaxing win. ♪
Gotta say this is why I prefer a 3-4 poke team to a full 6-team. It isn't harder, but it requires a bit of grinding... And let's face it, rarely is level grinding fun, eh?
So long as it evolves before level 30, bro. 29 is when it learns slash, and Leaf Blade ain't learned 'till 36. If you're desperate, just walk around 'till it's happiness is incredibly high. Every 256 steps, a poke gets +1 to Happiness. It'l take awhile, but what can ya do, eh?
There's also a massage lady on the first building to the left on Castelia Street, I believe. It's a free +3 you get while walking there once a day, so why not? Go get it before it hits midnight, lol.
So I took Cheren out just before cleaning up Team Plasma from the cave on route 6 i think it is... lol. Afterwords, went and caught me a Blitzle (named em Sparky ha) at level 10, and decided it was time to level grind. After cleaning up N, I walked into the normal type gym and let Pinsir clean up the whole thing by himself. Didnt even need to others. Cleaned up Elaine's Herdier with 2 Vicegrips after using focus energy (ended up killing itself with Take Down) then out came that stupid Rat thing.... Tried hypnosis and missed, my Vice Grip knocking down a third of its health. 2nd turn he hits my Pinsir with Hypnosis, but my Chesto Berry activates, and Pinsir scores a Critical hit Vice Grip for the win. Fluffy (CK... -.-) is proving to be far more difficult in this gen than i thought... Current stats are:
Pinsir lvl 15
Swablu (CK.... -.-) lvl 13
Sparky lvl 18
Oshawatt lvl 7
