the space between bugsy and whitney is pretty negligible so this'll be a quick one

we start by exiting azalea town and running into our favourite delinquent on our way out.

--



- Rival Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Babie 2 -

VS


it started by using curse. bite, of course, was more than enough to KO it.

VS


this thing was bulky af. a crit wing attack from cutler wasn't enough to take it out, and it also liked to spam synthesis. cutler eventually got down into the yellow, so i switched into natalia, who tanked a razor leaf, put it to sleep, and spammed night shade until it was finished off.

VS


it started by landing a supersonic, then spammed bite as i watched archer hit himself three times in a row. i healed, and finally managed to land one thundershock that secured the battle.

--

after this, we head into ilex forest and deal with some stray farfetchds.


Wesley // Oddish (Male)
Met in Ilex Forest
Lv. 6 - Chlorophyll - Sassy - Good endurance

leaving the forest, we make our way up to goldenrod city.


Grigori // Drowzee (Male)
Met on Route 34
Lv. 10 - Insomnia - Impish - Alert to sounds

ricky also evolves into croconaw during this time.

we reach goldenrod city, get the radio card, meet whitney for the first time, and also spend an absurd amount of time playing voltorb flip in order to teach both archer and natalia thunderbolt. then we head into the gym.

--



- Gym 3: Alolan Floatzel VS. Whitney -

VS


my game plan was to save rocky for the miltank, so i led with natalia and spammed thunderbolt against the clefairy. it did just under 50%. the first metronome it used turned into conversion, which failed. the second turn thunderbolt paralyzed, and clefairy was fully paralyzed. the third turn, whitney healed. the fourth turn, metronome turned into fissure, which was funny. the fifth turn, thunderbolt killed.

VS


ah here we go, the bane of all johto nuzlockers. i started this off by using rock tomb to lower its speed. from there on out, i just started spamming rock smash, which didn't do a lot at first, but started getting the defense drops. it did use attract on me and it was spamming milk drink throughout this whole thing, which was annoying, but stomp did little enough damage and rocky broke through enough times for us to eventually get to a point where rock smash was a 2hko. right before dealing the final blow, i switched into natalia and ate a stomp before switching back to rocky just to get rid of attract. the miltank was done for. thank god.

hi we're back

this update starts with me heading up to the pokéathlon dome.


Nolan // Nidoran (Male)
Met on Route 35
Lv. 12 - Poison Point - Timid - Sturdy body

i got REALLY EXCITED to participate in all the pokéathlon stuff, but was then promptly disappointed upon realizing that i couldn't play any of the events for shit due to me playing on an emulator. well, whatever. i did need to farm points to get a metal coat to evolve rocky, so i went ahead and did that to the best of my ability. rocky evolved shortly after, and so did gretchen.

we then make our way up through national park and further on to ecruteak city.


Boris // Weedle (Male)
Met in National Park
Lv. 10 - Shield Dust - Docile - Strong willed


Rina // Nidoran (Female)
Met on Route 36
Lv. 12 - Rivalry - Hardy - Alert to sounds


Nora // Pidgey (Female)
Met on Route 37
Lv. 13 - Keen Eye - Sassy - Alert to sounds

we suffer a loss on the way to ecruteak:


RIP Natalia the Gastly
Killed by an Astonish from a wild Stantler on Route 37


basically it just low rolled/high rolled and caught me off guard. blah, that's annoying

grigori the drowzee will fill the hole on the team for now - i don't know how long he'll stay, but that's how it'll be for the time being

we then head into the burned tower, and meet eusine.


Ethel // Koffing (Female)
Met in the Burned Tower
Lv. 14 - Levitate - Calm - Alert to sounds

wow another poison type, i love that for us

we grind a bit on the first level of the tower. cutler evolves into crobat just in time for us to fight:

it's another update that nobody asked for!

so the first thing i do after beating morty is return to goldenrod city and pick up bill's eevee, because i want to drop drowzee immediately.


Opal // Eevee [Female]
Met in Goldenrod City
Lv. 5 - Adaptability - Lax- Impetuous and silly


i waste no time evolving her into an espeon, then after picking up the surf hm from the kimono girl in ecruteak, we make our way westward towards the coastal cities.


Jeremy // Meowth [Male]
Met on Route 38
Lv. 16 - Pickup - Lax - Likes to fight


also i didnt catch anything on route 39 because oops

we get to olivine, fight our way up the lighthouse, and are instructed by jasmine to go to cianwood city to get the medicine for the sick ampharos (poor baby ;_;). we also pick up the good rod, then depart.


Samuel // Tentacool [Male]
Met on Route 40
Lv. 17 - Clear Body - Lax - Highly curious



Carlo // Magikarp [Male]
Met in Olivine City
Lv. 10 - Swift Swim - Calm - Good endurance



Corona // Chinchou [Female]
Met on Route 41
Lv. 20 - Volt Absorb - Serious - Somewhat stubborn



Rodrigo // Krabby [Male]
Met in Cianwood City
Lv. 20 - Hyper Cutter - Mild - Quick to flee


we stan water routes

we briefly encounter suicune, fight eusine, crush eusine, level some, evolve both ricky and archer, then challenge the cianwood gym.

--



- Gym 5: Alolan Floatzel VS. Chuck -

VS


confusion didn't quite oneshot, and on the same turn it used double team. i had swift, so i opted to use that after chuck healed and then finish with confusion after, but the first swift critted and brought it back down into the red, so i just used swift again and finished it.

VS


wing attack did about 60%, which activated the sitrus berry and brought it back over to green. it just spammed body slam on cutler, which unfortunately paralyzed, and i was ready for it to get hairy, but the second wing attack critted and killed even though cutler was knocked into the yellow.

--

i decided to just cure the ampharos and go for jasmine immediately after because why not. also it would make for a lame single update.

--



- Gym 6: Alolan Floatzel VS. Jasmine -

VS


dig ohko.

VS


surf 2hko.

VS


and dig ohko again. rip jasmine lol

--

i think we have a bunch of plot stuff coming up soon right? yeah

okay where were we

the first thing i do after beating jasmine is explore the routes west of cianwood around the safari zone to see if i can catch anything interesting.


Stu // Machoke [Male]
Met in the Cliff Cave
Lv. 22 - No Guard - Timid - Sturdy body



Montana // Tauros [Male]
Met on Route 48
Lv. 20 - Intimidate - Calm - Mischievous


montana is gonna join the team replacing gretchen because she has needed a replacement for a while. and i've never used a tauros before, so this should be fun!

after quickly catching him up on levels, we fly back to ecruteak and head eastward towards mahogany.


Reyna // Goldeen [Female]
Met on Route 42
Lv. 15 - Water Veil - Jolly - Proud of its power


arriving in mahogany, we head off to investigate the strange radio signals and the lake of rage.


Nadine // Pidgeotto [Female]
Met on Route 43
Lv. 17 - Keen Eye - Modest - Loves to eat


what the heck is it with all these weird natures i'm getting lmao

arriving at the lake of rage, we take on the red gyarados. since it's our first encounter there (and it's shiny), i figure i might as well catch it.


Fiona // Gyarados [Female]
Met in the Lake of Rage
Lv. 30 - Intimidate - Sassy - Mischievous


shortly afterward, we meet zaddy lance, who directs us to the team rocket hideout at the souvenir shop in mahogany town.

we run in, hacking and slashing our way through grunts. we get the two passwords to the boss room, and fight the first rocket executive.

--



- Team Rocket Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Petrel -

VS


confusion ohko.

VS


crit horn attack ohko.

VS


confusion ohko.

--

after defeating petrel, his murkrow leads us to the generator room, where we're challenged to a multi battle by another executive with lance as our partner.

--



- Team Rocket Battle: Alolan Floatzel/Lance VS. Ariana/Grunt -

VS


on the first turn of the fight, opal oneshotted the arbok with confusion while lance's dnite flew up into the sky.

VS


on the following turn, opal took out the drowzee with shadow ball, while fly oneshotted the murkrow.

VS


confusion first took out the gloom, and lance used fly again. opal stole his thunder by taking out the grimer before he could land.

--

after defeating ariana, we go ahead and deal with powering down the electrodes around the.... machine thingy? i think?


Othello // Electrode
Met in the Team Rocket HQ
Lv. 23 - Soundproof - Bold - Likes to thrash about


lance then gives us the hm for whirlpool and tells us to head to the mahogany gym, which we do with haste.

--



- Gym 7: Alolan Floatzel VS. Pryce -

VS


this one was pretty straightforward. thunderbolt ohko.

VS


surf 2hko.

and yet another thunderbolt ohko for archer.

time to do some rocket stuff now? i think?

this one's a doozy folks! strap in!

elm gives us a call right after we leave the mahogany gym telling us to investigate the strange radio signals coming from goldenrod. we fly there, pick up a team rocket disguise to get in, and start beating up grunts - so you know, business as usual.

the first order of business is finding the director to give us access to the higher parts of the radio tower. making our way up to the director's office, we find not the director but a boss.

--



- Team Rocket Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Petrel -

VS


fly 2hko.

VS


confusion 2hko.

VS


not much else to say here really. opal oneshotted two more koffings with confusion.

VS


then i decided to switch it up and let montana take out the other two koffings with zen headbutt.

--

petrel tells us the director is being held in the basement of the goldenrod tunnel, so we head there. not long after arriving into the rocket hideout, we are challenged by another opponent.

--



- Rival Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Babie 2 -

VS


it started off by confusing me, which was kind of irritating, but it wasn't that bad considering it wasn't able to deal any kind of substantive hits back. strength and iron tail took three shots to take this out.

VS


reflect made this substantively harder to defeat, with fly being a 3hko, but like the last matchup it couldn't deal any hits in return so this was easy.

VS


i decided to go for ampharos here instead of steelix because it was injured. focus blast was an ohko.

VS


zen headbutt ohko.

VS


horn attack 2hko.

--

we let our rival go on his way, then make our way through the basement. we free the director and return to the radio tower, where the other three of the team rocket elite 4 await us.

--



- Team Rocket Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Proton -

VS


this one went similarly to babie 2's golbat. it started with confuse ray, but rocky never hit himself. iron tail + strength twoshotted.

VS


psybeam ohko.

--



- Team Rocket Battle: Alolan Floatzel -

VS


yeah this one was easy. psybeam ohko.

VS


thunderbolt ohko.

VS


fly ohko.

--



- Team Rocket Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Archer -

VS


i wanted to preserve ricky for houndoom, so i sent out archer to hit the first mon. focus blast was a oneshot.

VS


surf 2hko.

VS


psybeam ohko.

--

and just like that, team rocket has been disbanded again, and they are no longer a threat to johto. with that, we continue our journey and head towards the final city.


Nathan // Poliwag [Male]
Met on Route 44
Lv. 30 - Water Absorb - Mild - Thoroughly cunning


Walton // Swinub [Male]
Met in the Ice Path
Lv. 21 - Oblivious - Quiet - Strongly defiant


we reach blackthorn city, and i begin to ponder my game plan for clair. given that i had no real answer for most of her team (especially her kingdra), i was quite worried that something was going to die. my normal defensive wall, steelix, wasn't going to work, and i didn't have anything else that could reasonably stand up to her. i ended up boxing montana, and taking out francis the slowpoke to evolve him into a slowking and use him as my special wall for clair's kingdra. it wasn't a perfect solution by any means, but i figured it was better than trying to throw my current team at it and praying. plus, he could be an asset for members of the elite 4 and lance more than montana could be. sorry montana, i did enjoy having you on the team but you're gonna have to go in the box now

we spend a lot of time leveling and preparing, then finally we head in to take on the final gym leader.

--



- Gym 8: Alolan Floatzel VS. Clair -

VS


this was the easy one. thunderbolt ohko.

VS


i knew it was important to preserve slowking for kingdra, so i sent out ricky to deal with the dragonites. the first one started off by using thunder wave, while ice fang did around 75% damage. ricky was fully paralyzed the next turn, allowing dragon pulse to deal 30% of damage back, and after knocking ricky into the yellow a second ice fang finished it off.

VS


i decided staying in and healing was the best thing to do because i didnt want to bring out francis yet and ricky was my best shot at beating the dragonairs outside of him. i healed the first turn, and dragon pulse continued to hit decently hard. i alternated between healing and attacking since ricky would get knocked into the yellow every two hits, but thankfully paralysis never went into effect and the second dragonair went down after four turns and two ice fangs.

VS


okay here was the big one. so francis was able to tank kingdra's attacks decently well, but the main issue here was smokescreen. i was only dealing around 30% damage back, and with the accuracy drops, it got so bad that i was only making one hit every three turns. after initially eating up its sitrus berry, kingdra hit francis with a hyper beam, so i took advantage of that and switched into rocky and then switched back to reset the accuracy drops. of course, kingdra reset those drops again REAL quick - and clair even healed back up on top of that so that made it even more annoying - but finally, after countless zen headbutts and ice beams, a well-timed crit depleted 40% of kingdra's hp to win me the battle. g fucking g, clair.

last update kids

we beat clair, run into the dragon's den to get the rising badge (at this point i care little about catching stuff so i don't catch anything in there), then fly back to new bark town to pick up the master ball from elm. then we beat the kimono girls in ecruteak to get the tidal bell, then head into the whirl islands. i didn't really want to put up with fighting lugia, so i repelled through the whole cave and then just chucked the master ball at it.


Mykonos // Lugia
Met in the Whirl Islands
Lv. 45 - Pressure - Lax - Good perseverance


lugia in hand, we leave the whirl islands and begin making our way to the indigo plateau. we make our final three catches on the way there.


Valentina // Arbok [Female]
Met on Route 27
Lv. 28 - Intimidate - Gentle - Somewhat vain

Hubert // Graveler [Male]
Met in Victory Road
Lv. 32 - Rock Head - Mild - Likes to thrash about


because there are no trainers in victory road, we kinda breeze through. at the end, we're challenged by our rival one last time.

- Rival Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Babie 2 -

iron tail ohko.

as usual, reflect and synthesis made this more irritating than it could have been, but enough fly and wing attack spam took it out.

shadow ball ohko.

VS


crunch ohko.

VS


earthquake ohko.

VS


psybeam ohko. thank god now i never have to see this guy's face ever again

--

we arrive at the league, finally. we spend quite some time leveling and preparing, and shuffling around movesets. then we head in.

--



- Elite Four Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Will -

VS


thunderbolt ohko.

VS


flamethrower didn't quite kill. will healed, but two more attacks finished it.

VS


archer got confused on the first turn. he didn't hit himself, though, and oneshotted with thunderbolt.

VS


this one was kind of annoying, as archer hit himself twice in a row. i had to heal once, then the exeggutor used hypnosis and put archer to sleep. i had to heal again, and finally the turn after signal beam took it out.

VS


thunderbolt 2hko. gg will.

--



- Elite Four Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Koga -

VS


wing attack ohko.

VS


fly ohko.

VS


flamethrower ohko.

VS


similar to the situation with will's jynx, psybeam wasn't quite a oneshot, but it just needed to keep attacking after koga healed to kill it.

VS


i switched because espeon's defense got lowered against muk and didn't want that to carry over. ice fang didn't do as much damage as i expected it to - less than 50%, actually - but rocky completely walled this crobat. all i had to do was spam ice fang in order to eventually win. gg koga.

--



- Elite Four Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Bruno -

VS


i set up reflect on the first turn because why not. it used dig, so i just waited it out. psybeam was an ohko.

VS


waterfall ohko.

VS


psybeam wasn't quite a oneshot. i reset reflect while bruno healed, and two more psybeams took it down.

VS


fly ohko.

VS


luckily, there were no rock slide flinches here. psychic 2hko, gg bruno.

--



- Elite Four Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Karen -

VS


umbreon being what it is, it was able to take rocky's attacks really well, but rocky walled it even better, so i just kept throwing various attacks at it and it eventually fainted.

VS


waterfall ohko.

VS


fly ohko.

VS


thunderbolt ohko.

VS


this was a crunch 2hko - however, it pulled a nasty little trick that caught me completely off guard:


RIP Ricky the Feraligatr (Lv. 5-50)
Killed by Karen's Gengar's Destiny Bond


fucking RIP. god damn i was bummed about this. not only did losing ricky suck for sentimental reasons, but this was going to be annoying for lance, too, because ricky was going to be one of my main lines of offense against his dragonites. god damn it.

oh well. there's nothing for it. for now, we just gotta take the w from karen and move on to the final challenge.

--



- Champion Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Lance -

VS


as usual, gyarados is no match for archer's thunderbolt.

VS


this is where it got intense. lance had three dragonites: one with thunder, one with blizzard, and one with fire blast. the tricky part was going to be figuring out which dragonite he was going to send out. i figured he wouldn't go for thunder on my ampharos, so i switched into slowking for the first dragon assuming it was fairly safe. this one was the fire blast one, so it was okay. it used safeguard on the first turn, which allowed me to get a free ice beam off and knock it into the yellow (god these things are bulky). it used outrage on the turn after, which was very scary and did 75% damage to francis, but the next ice beam took it out.

VS


with the fire blast dragon gone, rocky was free to be a hard counter to the other two. dragon rush did minimal damage here and ice fang twoshotted.

VS


francis was fairly weakened from fighting the first dragonite, so i sent out archer, who was at around 60% after fighting the gyarados. fire fang brought him into the yellow and tbolt didn't quite kill. lance and i both healed on the next turn, and the next tbolt highrolled and oneshotted.

VS


while rocky was still a decent wall here, blizzard was doing substantial enough amounts of damage for it to be worrisome, so i just spammed healing items until it ran out of pp for blizzard and ice fanged it to death.

VS


the battle ended with a final thunderbolt from archer. gg johto, gg lance.

meet eddy, everyone! mudkip is one of my favourite starters and emerald is one of my favourite games, so i'm really excited about this one.

you should all know how this one goes - we save professor birch from the wild zigzagoon, and are sent off to go find our new rival and honourary babie may up on route 102.

- Rival Battle: Alolan Floatzel VS. Babie 3 May -

VS


we stan the obligatory earlygame rival battle of attrition! i had the level advantage, so i just tacklespammed. you know the drill.

--

after defeating may for the first time, we head back to littleroot town, where we're given pokéballs and informed of the gym in rustboro city. we say goodbye to our mother and head out, first making our way past oldale town towards petalburg.

no fucking offense but i would quite literally die for cookie. also pickup is a dope ability as usual.

we reach petalburg city, and confer with our father, who give us a catching tutorial in the form of following wally around while he catches one of the better pokémon in the game by sheer luck. after that, we press on towards the woods.


Addison // Wurmple [M]
Met in Petalburg Woods
Lv. 5 - Shield Dust - Calm


we get our first taste of team aqua here, but it's pretty easy to deal with. we exit the woods and press on to rustboro city.


Avery // Taillow [M]
Met on Route 104
Lv. 5 - Guts - Rash


after arriving, i make a detour up to the north to make another catch and access a more efficient grinding area.


Felicia // Skitty [F]
Met on Route 116
Lv. 7 - Cute Charm - Relaxed


ella goes in the box, and we begin to level. despite me noticing that it's always the grind session before the first gym that is the most awkward, we get through it with minimal issues. addison also evolves into cascoon and then dustox during this time.

after we're finished leveling, we go challenge the first gym.

--



- Gym 1: Alolan Floatzel VS. Roxanne -

VS


water gun ohko.

VS


ctrl + c ctrl + v

VS


nosepass gave us some trouble, actually. water gun was doing less than 50%, and on the first turn its rock tomb did around 30% back, which was a bit too much for my liking, so i hit it with a couple growls just to reduce the damage while i prepared for the long game. i just spammed water gun from there on out, and roxanne healed not once but twice which made things especially bothersome, but it went down eventually. actually a decent challenge for the first gym, i'm rather surprised.

eddy evolved after the gym battle, which was real cool and fun!
