Wow, here I am, and I haven’t updated in quite a while. But i’ve got a lot of news and updates, but i’ll try and keep things interesting and to the point.
So where was I? That’s right, Slowpoke Well to help some local town douche bag out who decided to be hero, who ever goes in alone? I ventured down the massive ladder, nearly falling, and wanted to run into something besides a Zubat which just love any caves or dark places. It actually took until after the first trainer battle to run into a Pokemon, and guess what it was, a Slowpoke, in a Slowpoke Well, who would have thought? I did, but I was a bit too over-confident on that, so next time i’ll be neutral. It was an easy catch once I put it to sleep with my Boob-Eyes in the red. I shall call you “HerpDerp”
I went through Team Rocket down there in around 4 minutes, they were too easy, the wild Pokemon around were harder. I got the hell out of the Well and felt it was time for the Gym. I was warned previously by Liam at liamsnuzlockechallenge.tumblr.com that the trainers use grass type Pokemon, therefore my Book-Eyes would just Peck the shit out of them, KO. I went in there knowing I can’t use my water types, or it’s game, set, match. I went with my Ugly-Bat and Boob-Eyes and owned that Gym harder then Adelaide beat West Coast yesterday night. I’ll take that awesome badge off your hands crap Gym Leader. Cheers.
Where now? Ilex Forest the locals have informed me, but all I ever heard was “Skrillex Forest”, I was looking forward to hearing some bass-heavy tunes throughout the forest, but my hopes were shattered as it is just Ilex Forest. Oh well, shit happens, it was nice and calm in here with Pokemon hardly ever taking me on. I had to chase a few Far’fetched for about 5 minutes, that was quite dandy and fun, but why couldn’t the trainer do it? I didn’t know what Pokemon to encounter here in Skrillex Forest, and out comes a bloody Oddish! I was excited, but also disappointed because i’m not a fan of Oddish at all, but it is a Grass type, which I don’t have. I caught the little shit at Level 5, wow, give Oddish a medal for such a high level. I left it in the box, where it deserves of course. I nicknamed this shithole “Greeny”.
I finished at Skrillex Forest and dropped so much bass, that I thought i’d go onto Route 34 to get back into normality. Route 34 is quite nice, there’s heaps of trainers, lots of grass (lol) and even a Pokemon Daycare. The Daycare is a savior for those shitty Pokemon that you don’t want to train the lower levels in. But i’m not going to use it at all, ever! During my time in Route 34, I figured it was time for a wild Pokemon Battle to see what I can get. I went to the top of Route 34 and out came a Rattata! Initially, I wasn’t impressed, but realizing that Rattata evolves into Raticate changed my mind so I went for it anyway, my streak continued, i caught the little runt, which rhymes with what? I nicknamed this one “Rattatard” - which is pretty clever for me :) Into the box you go to for later. I’ll think about your role later, son.
I faced a problem, and that was after Route 34, it was time for a new city, and that city was Goldenrod City, I was a small man in a big city. The shopping is nice there, 6 levels of awesome, a radio tower, a bike shop (FUCK YES, FINALLY), and to cap it off, gambling. This is where i’d be spending my time in real life, but Pokemon isn’t real life :(
Seeing as none of my Pokemon have fainted (touch wood, i did), I had to ensure before the new Gym, I would easily defeat it. So for hours, it involved grinding away and going to the wild for countless battles and experience building. So all I can say here, man training is fun and challenging at the same time. The lowest one my Pokemon got was to 9 HP, and that was in the red, I nearly had a heart attack in real life. I’ll never risk training like that again. I got 5 of my Pokemon to Level 21 before taking this Goldenrod (funny penis name) Gym Leader on.
Normal types aye, pretty boring Gym Leader, but also means to get my fighting types on, oh wait, I don’t have one. I’ll have to settle for Doublefist who has Rock Smash which is a fighting move and the normal types won’t even scratch him. Boom, another easy one. I smashed the standard other trainers in the Gym, then went to the leader. Clefairy was a piece of cake, took like 10 HP from me, so i wasn’t worried. Miltank comes in with it’s stupid Rollout and Stomp. Man, things went to the line, I had it in the red, but then SUPER POTION. Ouch, have to start again, so I did the same. In the end, Weakness’ overcame all other factors and that badge was mine.
Let’s call it a day Josh, you’ve smashed a few Gyms, smashed a million trainers and trillions of wild Pokemon. You deserve a beer, damn, I don’t drink beer, Jack Daniels sounds good. I have no idea what i’m facing after Goldenrod so i’m getting a stiffy from the excitement. Weird right?
At the end of the 3rd Gym, this is how things shaped up;
“Krokodil”/Totodile – Level 21
“Doublefist”/Geodude – Level 21
“Boob-eyes”/HootHoot – Level 21
“Ugly-Bat”/Zubat – Level 21
"HerpDerp"/Slowpoke - Level 21
“Sunburned”/Hoppip – Level 6
