I headed east of Ecruteak and found Suicune once again. It ran away unfortunately so I continued on to Mahogany Town. With nothing to do I went north and battled the trainers on the way to the Lake of Rage. I explored the entire Lake and snagged a few items before defeating the Red Gyarados for experience. Lance from the Elite4 showed up and said something odd was going on in Mahogany Town. We went to the small town and found a secret Team Rocket hideout! GASP!!! Lance claimed that we would take down the rocket grunts but all he did was stand around and make me do all the work. After we defeated the 6 Electrode I received a worthless HM and then headed to the gym.
Ice types. Ice types everywhere. Quilava and Lanturn teamed up to take down the trainers in this gym. After a lot of sliding I was able to battle Pryce. Lanturn went out against Seel and knocked it out with Spark. Pryce swapped to Piloswine so I went to Quilava. It only took two Flame Wheels to knock out the mammoth so Pryce was left with his last Pokemon, Dewgong. Lanturn was back out and won the battle with a few Sparks. I received the Glacier Badge and when I tried to leave Professor Elm called me and told me about some Rocket related happenings at the Radio Tower. I flew to Goldenrod and began taking down grunts in the tower. After clearing out the second floor Quilava evolved into Typhlosion. I reached the Director on the 5th floor and hoped he would help me but he had been taken and replaced with a Team Rocket member. I took a break after beating him. Team is Lv34-36.
