Well, beat the E4 today.
Sidney was no problem. Blaziken just tore through his team with a couple of double kicks.
Phoebe, also easy. Sharpedo crunched his way straight through her team.
Glacia was where things started to get hard. Double kicked through her team until Walrein, where my Blaziken got offed by an extremely lucky sheer cold. Kecleon stood in, and just used a sub-punch strategy until the fat pig-walrus went down.
Drake, oh, Drake. How I bow to your power.
Started off with Kecleon, and ice beamed my way through shelgon and the first flygon. I got killed because of her ability, because a dragon claw hit me. That made the type dragon, and I was killed by the second flygon. That forced me to send out Altaria, and I got in one ice beam before being brutally murdered by a dragon claw. Salamence just ripped through my whole team. I sent out Exploud, and got a critical on Return.
That leaves Steven. I now see why he was made the champion.
Blaziken started off, easily blaze kicking his way through Skarmory, but not fast enough to avoid a toxic. He double kicked Aggron to 1/2 hp, and then was ALMOST killed by an earthquake, barely surviving the poison damage. He was then switched out for Sharpedo, who surfed Aggron to his doom. Next was Cradily. Oh, how I hated that thing. Kecleon got the spotlight this time, getting in a focus punch and bringing the thing down to 2/3 hp. However, he was hit by an ancientpower and was giga drained to death afterwards. Altaria was killed by another ancientpower. Exploud was switched in, flamethrower'd the Cradily, and blocked the next pokemon, Armaldo, stalling for time as I healed my blaziken. However, the poison damage couldn't be removed before Exploud was KO'd. Blaziken double kicked the thing down, but died of poison damage.
Shedinja was my last resort, and I was just waiting for Steven to KO me with his Metagross so that I could start over. Shedinja used shadow ball, and I braced myself for the next attack, waiting to hear the fainting *beeoop*...
But it never came.
I had forgotten all about Wonder Guard! I happily shadow balled the Metagross to death, feeling so happy that I kept Shedinja with every hit. I had finally, truely beaten the Elite Four! All thanks to Shedinja, a pokemon who I thought was useless.
It has since become my most treasured pokemon on that game.
