Update 6: Can't shock the rock! (VS Elesa)
Ah, good old Nimbasa! Time to explore and find out what the city has to provide for me-
>Plasma Grunts accosting an old man.
Go figure. The old man runs to me begging for help - of course. Anything to cave in a Plasma's face. Two clean OHKOs, and the second guy drags the first one away to the amusement park. And I get a bike out of it, sweet! I've been waiting for this for a while. Immediately added to key items. Next step is to heal and hit the stadiums- nevermind. Bianca swings by and mentions the musical. Maybe I'll have Jane get in on it!
Anyways, healed and hit the stadiums. Got a Sun Stone and got the HM for Strength, as well as a Soothe Bell.
Starting in Small Stadium, where it's Tennis day. And apparently the levels are curved to match my team's exact levels right now - the first lady had a lv. 25 Blitzle and everyone on the team is 24-25 across.
...She was the only one in that stadium, so it's off to the Big Stadium. They've got the true American pastime, baseball. First guy's Pansear was a crit super-effective OHKO, which is super satisfying. The other two were a regular OHKO and a 2HKO.
Oh, hey! Mohs evolved into a Boldore!
I'm not seeing much in either stadium for experience, so I'm gonna hit the musical and everything that it entails for items and stuff. TM49 Echoed Voice was gifted to me out of the blue, too! I head out- oh no. Bianca’s controlling father comes to take her back home and drama breaks out. It’s such a huge relief Elesa comes in and gets involved here, because I doubt the old man would’ve had any reason to step back otherwise. An excellent showcase of actual plot and a Gym leader actually doing something, tbh. Can I just say, though, that the line “I'll teach you a little something about how tough a journey can get.” is quite terrifying, even in a non-nuzlocke context?
Thanks to the powers of time travel (not really), I head back to the stadium for more EXP from a different set of trainers - I need it, as Elesa’s team goes up to lv. 27. Not finding much, I went out east to hit the trainers leading up to the gate on Rt.16 and to get an encounter. The first NPC hit a Take Down that dropped Barrow to just outside the red in one hit. The rest weren’t anywhere as eventful, thankfully. I noticed in the middle of this that holding down the run button makes the bikers travel twice as fast, even if you’re standing still. That’s all of the immediately accessible trainers all done at this point, so I’m going to poke around in the grassy area north of the walkway.
My encounter in the tall grass is a Minccino! I haven't used one of these, but I know they can get Skill Link, so catchin' time. This one was pretty easy to get! His name is Darwin, after Charles Darwin - the father of the theory of evolution. With that, I go clean out the stragglers on the route for some last bit of XP.
I found a Charcoal and the TM for Payback, then noticed a hidden walkway on the other side of the trees - off I go! It's Lostlorn Forest. You can get a Zoroark here under the right circumstances, if I remember right...But alas, I doubt I have the means right now.
(A/N briefly googled it after this and I need one of the shiny Beasts for this)
In that case, my next move here is a regular encounter. I found a Big Mushroom as I started making my way back up - well then. A random Hiker babbles about values of different people and how the lady inside the trailer is really quiet. If only he knew.
My encounter in the Forest was...a dupe. My second attempt got me a Swadloon. Stupid me forgot Swadloon was part Bug and clicked on Ancient Power. Thank God it ate the hit. This lad is named Ostrograd, after Ostrogradsky's Theorem, also known as the divergence theorem.
To sum it up:
"The divergence theorem states that the outward flux of a tensor field through a closed surface is equal to the volume integral of the divergence over the region inside the surface. Intuitively, it states that the sum of all sources (with sinks regarded as negative sources) gives the net flux out of a region."
Make sense? No? Yeah ,I don't get it either.. I decided to hit the subway for fun - was given a VS Recorder and then went to Anville Town to bag a bunch of items. A rare candy and...that's it. Why do I keep overestimating?
Anyways, I didn't get the level growth I wanted, but I'm ready for the Gym and Plasma fights. Barrow and Wright are obvious weaknesses in the next Gym, and Jane loses to the Emolga in typing. I'll box them after Plasma.
N catches me at the Park and shoves us both in the Ferris Wheel, where he unceremoniously tells me he's the king of Plasma. Like it wasn't obvious enough. Also, his obsession with math is a bit comical. Oh crap, here we go-
VS Pokemon Trainer N
T1: Cuil v Sandile
Secret Power KO!
T3: Wright v Scraggy
T4: Mohs v Sigilyph
Smack Down! Sigilyph fell straight down.
Psybeam crit! (54/75 → 9/75 holy crap)
Smack Down KO! Mohs grew to lv. 26.
T6: Barrow v Darumaka
Water Pulse OHKO!
Ok. Newfound respect for Eviolite and for Boldore for eating that crit that hard. After that, N approaches and declares that he'll be the champion. Right, you may want to go south and east. First gym's over in Striation.
Detour to the center to heal, stock up and box the three weak to the gym, then fed the rare candy to Brooks to bring her a bit further up to speed. And now we're gonna tackle the gym!
1 - 2x2HKO
2 - OHKO!
3 - 2HKO, OHKO.
4 - 2HKO
That's all of them! And finally an end to the OSHA-violation roller coasters. Elesa time!

She hands over the Bolt Badge and the machine for Volt Switch, which would be handy if I had an Electric type. Anyways, she tells me to meet her at Route 5. First things first is to reassemble the team of scientists, theories and...and Cuil. Yeah.
That'll be it for now. See you all next time!
