Hey guys, it's been a long long time since I've last posted here.. mainly 'cause I stopped playing for quite a while, but I picked my old Diamond game up again and continued raising Pokemon to level 100. Today, I got my 6th level 100 pokemon, my Dragonite that was in my first batch of migrated Pokemon from Fire Red as a Dragonair. It has the moves Dragon Dance, Outrage, Fire Punch and Brick Break, decent enough for ingame. I decided I wanted to raise a Magcargo next, so I bred my female Magcargo with a freshly caught lv. 17 male Gastly to get an Egg containing a Slugma with Curse. I plan to annoy the hell out of things with it knowing Curse and Yawn, as well as the offensive moves Earth Power and Flamethrower. I know those are both special and Curse raises Attack, but it's more of a filler move anyway. Anyway, I now have a Slugma with Curse and Yawn, as well as two random level-up moves I plan on deleting when I get it to level 61/66. I did one run-through of the E4 with it holding the Exp. Share, and it got to level 32, so it's not far from evolving. I have to plan another new team member too, as my Hippowdon is currently level 95, so not long until I have to replace her, being the last member of my original storyline team (Empoleon, Staraptor, Luxray, Skuntank, Hippowdon and when I got the Nat. Dex, I added Dragonite). She always was a bit behind level-wise, haha. Anyway, I also caught and evolved some Pokemon, for dex data as well as more options for stuff to train. I obtained a Kangaskhan, Cacturne, Hariyama, Quagsire, Kingler and Weavile today. Lastly, I went underground and actually stroke lucky for once, this is what I got:
Heart Scale x3, Skull Fossil x3, Blue Shard x2,
Revive x2, Toxic Plate, Everstone, Max Revive, Fire Stone,
Rare Bone x2, Helix Fossil, Red Shard x2, Smooth Rock,
Thunderstone x2, Hard Stone x2, Claw Fossil x2
So yeah, pretty good, I always like getting Heart Scales
Quick update on my team to round things off:
Hippowdon Lv. 95 @ Earth Plate
- Ice Fang
Comments: A big fat powerhouse and something I can switch into ANYTHING. This thing isn't just a tank, Hippo is an army of tanks. Earth Plate + STAB + EQ = OHKO's across the board. Will be missed when it reaches level 100.
Lickilicky Lv. 82 @ nothing
- Power Whip
- Hammer Arm
- Gyro Ball
- Wring Out
Comments: This one surprised me. I thought, as a Normal type, I would have some trouble finding things to switch this thing into, but I was proven wrong, because Lickilicky is a great addition to my team. I love spamming Power Whip and/or Hammer Arm, and Wring Out is fun every once in a while. Gyro Ball is a filler, I never use it.
Ampharos Lv. 78 @ Quick Claw
- Thunder Wave
- Signal Beam
- Power Gem
Comments: When at a lower level, Ampharos was very fragile and disappointed me a little. But now, scoring kills here, there and basically everywhere, it's proven its worth. I was too lazy to buy a Thunderbolt TM for it, but Thunder usually pulls through for me when I need it to, and occasionally I have my Lapras' Rain Dance active to help out againt Double Team noobs. Signal Beam is another useless filler move I never use.
Seviper Lv. 68 @ nothing
- Poison Jab
- Night Slash
Comments: Great attacker, but oh so fragile and therefore not the easiest Pokemon to train. Poison Jab is awesome, the other two attacking moves are very useful and Glare is there when I need it. I really do hope that this thing will be able to take more than 1-2 hits though, because right now it's definitely weaker than the Pokemon it replaced, my awesome Skuntank.
Lapras lv. 61 @ nothing
- Ice Beam
- Rain Dance
Comments: Yaay RD/Thunder combo and two STAB moves. Lapras is awesome, being a capable tank as well as a very decent attacker. A bit slow, but that doesn't matter when you take any kind of hit like a champ. Lapras is awesome, I love it.
Slugma Lv. 32 @ Exp. Share
Comments: I haven't actually used Slugma in battle yet, but what I do know is that it's slow and has no physical attack. I'm hoping that it will be awesome when it evolves and gets to the kinds of level where I can actually use it against the E4, which hopefully isn't too long.
