It's finally here! The end of the main game! I finish Victory Road, battle my rival, do some minor things and battle the E4 & Champion!
Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 9: The Elite Four & Champion Cynthia
- I headed to Victory Road and easily made it there.
- Battled every trainer and I collected every item in Victory Road. Got some helpful movers, such as Dark Pulse.
- At the Pokémon League, I battled Rival Matt. Fairly easy battle.
Swine Flu VS Staraptor (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Floatzel (Masquerade wins and is recalled)
Serena VS Rapidash (Serena wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Heracross (Heracross wins)
Serena VS Heracross (Heracross wins)
Tiberius VS Heracross (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Torterra (Cobblepot wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Snorlax (Swine Flu wins WITH 1 HP!)
Pretty good battle. Cobblepot VS Torterra just had to happen.
- Did the Underground Man's tests, just to have those finished.
- Got my team all at the same level (50), which wasn't too hard to do. Taught them all some great moves and I was ready to take on the E4!
- VS Aaron
Swine Flu VS Yanmega (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Scizor (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Heracross (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Vespiquen (Swine Flu wins)
Swine Flu VS Drapion (Swine Flu wins)
One of the easiest battles of the E4. Tiberius & Swine Flu had 4x effective moves against some Pokémon. Could have used Serena against Heracross, but decided against it.
- VS Bertha
Masquerade VS Whiscash (Masquerade wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Gliscor (Cobblepot wins with only 12 HP)
Cobblepot VS Hippowdon (Cobblepot wins)
Cobblepot VS Golem (Cobblepot wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Rhyperior (Masquerade wins)
Easier than Aaaron! Used 4x effective moves during the whole battle.
- VS Flint
Swine Flu VS Houndoom (Houndoom wins, 1st Casualty for me in the E4)
Serena VS Houndoom (Serena wins)
Serena VS Infernape (Infernape wins)
Cobblepot VS Infernape (Cobblepot wins)
Cobblepot VS Magmortar (Magmortar wins)
Swine Flu VS Magmortar (Magmortar wins)
Sphinx VS Magmortar (Magmortar wins)
Masquerade VS Magmortar (Masquerade is recalled)
Tiberius VS Magmortar (Magmortar wins)
Masquerade VS Magmortar (Masquerade wins)
Masquerade VS Flareon (Flareon wins)
Swine Flu VS Flareon (Swine Flu wins)
Swine Flu VS Rapidash (Rapidash wins)
Cobblepot VS Rapidash (Cobblepot wins)
Obviously much tougher than the previous 2 battles. Magmortar wrecked my team, but of course I would heal up. I went a bit overboard with healing items. This was when the Pokémon League really started to "heat up" (pun intended).
- VS Lucian
Sphinx VS Mr. Mime (Sphinx wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Bronzong (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Gallade (Gallade wins)
Serena VS Gallade (Gallade wins)
Tiberius VS Gallade (Gallade wins)
Sphinx VS Gallade (Sphinx wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Alakazam (Alakazam wins)
Sphinx VS Alakazam (Sphinx wins)
Sphinx VS Espeon (Espeon wins)
Cobblepot VS Espeon (Cobblepot wins)
Though I got some great wins right off the bat, I'd definitely say this battle was harder than Flint. Cobblepot was close to losing. By the way, it always seems to be up to Cobblepot in my most hardest and intense battles.
- Now it's time for Champion Cynthis! As expected, I did lose a couple of times. Twice to be precise. The first time, I managed to beat her Garchomp, Togekiss & Milotic, before losing to Lucario. The second time, I only beat Garchomp. Not sure who I lost to the second time, probably Milotic. This is why I save before each E4 Match. Without further ado, here is the final match of the main game, Zach VS Champion Cynthia- The Most Epic Battle I Had In The Game!
Tiberius VS Spiritomb (Spiritomb recalled)
Tiberius VS Lucario (Lucario wins)
Swine Flu VS Lucario (Lucario wins)
Sphinx VS Lucario (Lucario is recalled, paralyzed)
Sphinx VS Garchomp (Garchomp wins)
Serena VS Garchomp (Garchomp wins)
Swine Flu VS Garchomp (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Lucario (Lucario wins)
Tiberius VS Lucario (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Milotic (Milotic wins)
Cobblepot VS Milotic (Cobblepot is recalled)
Masquerade VS Milotic (Masquerade wins and is recalled)
Sphinx VS Togekiss (Sphinx wins, critical)
Sphinx VS Spiritomb (Spiritomb wins)
Tiberius VS Spiritomb (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Roserade (Roserade wins)
Swine Flu VS Roserade (Roserade wins)
Masquerade VS Roserade (Roserade wins)
Tiberius VS Roserade (Roserade wins)
Cobblepot VS Roserade (Cobblepot wins)
Longest and most stressful battle ever. If I didn't paralyze Lucario thanks to Sphinx's Spark, I might have lost. Lucario has super effective moves against everyone on my team except Masquerade and can hit very hard, very fast. I was surprised at how well Cynthia's Roserade did (mine could learn a thing or 2), but when it came down to it, my final Pokémon, good ol' Cobblepot pulled off the win!
Cobblepot/Empoleon- LV 52
Ice Beam, HP (Psychic), Surf & Flash Cannon
Sphinx/Luxray- LV 51
Iron Tail, Leer, Crunch & Spark
Masquerade/Roserade- LV 50
Energy Ball, Shadow Ball, Flash & Sludge Bomb
Serena/Togekiss- LV 50
Fire Blast, HP (Electric), Aura Sphere & Fly
Tiberius/Houndoom- LV 51
HP (Ice), Thunder Fang, Dark Pulse & Flamethrower
Swine Flu/Mamoswine- LV 51
Return, Earthquake, Ice Fang & Stone Edge
This team truly was amazing. We've been through so many tough battles and somehow, pulled through all of them! The journey isn't over yet though!
Next Time: The Aftergame! Going to need to see the Lake Guardians & Rotom first though.
