We talked for a bit. She told me that she has had Psychic powers since she was a child. The battled commenced! She went with her Kadabra while I sent out Vaporeon. She used Calm Mind. I used Bite which got it to low yellow. I used Quick Attack to finish it off. She then went with her Mr. Mime. I kept Vaporeon in and used another Bite. It got it down just mire than halfway. It used Barrier so I finished it with another Bite. She then went to Venomoth. I switched to Arcanine to use a Dig. It got it to Low Green. I then finished it off with Flam Wheel. She then sent out her ace, Alakazam. I went with Primeape. It used Psychic to OHKO me. I went back to Arcanine to use Take Down which got it to Red. It healed and I used Take Down again. It healed yet again so I went with Aerial Ace and finished it with another Take Down. I won! She gave me the Marsh Badge and the TM for Calm Mind! I left to heal and flew to Pallet Town.

When I arrived at Pallet Town I went to my home to pay my Mom a visit. She healed and I went to Oaks lab. He checked my Pokedex and I had obtained 63 Pokemon. Not bad. I then went to the coast and used Surf. This will be good training for Venusaur and Raichu. I went past the patch of grass and dealt with the Fishermen, one of which had 6 god damn Magikarp's. I then found some swimmers and battled them all. I then faced some more Fishermen. After beating them I swam some more. I then saw land. I had arrived at Cinnabar Island. I healed and went to the gym but it was locked however. So I went to the Lab. There I looked around and revived my fossil. It was a Kabuto. I flew over to Fuchsia.
I wandered around Memorial Pillar, and after I placed a Lemonade on the dead Onix's grave, I obtained the TM containing the move Facade from his trainer. I left back to Five Island, and I went ahead and took the ship to Six Island. I arrived at there didn't appear to be much to do, so I headed to Ruin Valley to battle some trainers and to get the Sapphire for Celio's machine. I battled some trainers there, and then I headed into the tall grass to capture wild Pokemon. I encountered a wild Natu and then a wild Yanma, and I captured both. I battled some more trainers around the valley, mostly the Hiker class trainers, and then I got to the Dotted Hole. I solved the mystery there, and I was able to head inside to explore. I fell down the holes and I found the Sapphire, but a Scientist came to get it first. I saved before chasing after him.
After healing from the encounter from our rival, it was time to show our badges to the Badge Checkers and enter Victory Road. There isn't much to say, due to it mostly being stone puzzles. They required some thinking, but was not complicated.
The trainers took a while to deal with. Some had a few, some had almost a full team. Most seemed to specialize in only one type, though. I guess they're doing a mono-type run. The hardest and most frustrating battle seemed to be the double battle at the end. I got really luck haxxed with me being poisoned, paralyzed, and got hit by a critical hit. Nevertheless, I still managed to beat them without any of my Pokemon fainting.
In the end, it turned out both Slumby and Pukurina were untouched, yet everyone else took a beating. Re-Coil only took a few bits of damage, Poizapunch took a large amount of it, and Waveshell and Kazooie were paralyzed and poisoned, respectively. Either way, we made it out, went through one maze of pipes, and reached the league.
And thus, after healing and saving, it was time for the stressful part: the training. I was going to train all of my Pokemon up to level 60, while most were in the low 50s. It will take a longer time than usual, due to few high-leveled Pokemon and few refightable trainers with high levels. However, since Slumby and Pukurina are traded, it'll take them less time, and plus I still have a few Rare Candies from my adventure.
Good Spots to Train: (Remember to turn Battle Animations off to save time!)
Fisherman Elliot, closest Fisherman to the on Route 12. When rematched, his evolved Pokemon combine to give a mass amount of Exp. points.
Victory Road, of course, it's a bit slower this time, due to less Exp than usual, but its the highest Lv. Pokemon you can fight in the wild.
The trainers on Kindle Road, specifically the Crush Kin, the two Black Belts, and the Crush Girl. They all use Fighting types, though are the same level as last time. However, the Ember Spa makes it easy to heal when needed.
I've been training for many a while now, and I should finish training tommorow, and challenge the Elite 4! I'll post my team's stats as well!
When I arrived at Fuchsia I healed again for some reason as I healed before I came here. I legged the Pokemon Centre and went south to a little beach where I battled two trainers. I then used Surf and started Swimming on the Fuchsia side of Seafoam Islands. I went down and battled all of the Swimmers that were there. I then turned left and arrived at another route and battled all of the Swimmers there too. I kept on swimming until I came to Seafoam Island. I talked to a kid there and he said that Misty go's there to train occasionally. I then went on the water and battled another swimmer. I then flew to Cinnabar and did that side of the Seafoam islands. I arrived at the other side of the Islands but since I didn't want to explore there yet I flew back to Cinnabar, healed and saved infront of the Cinnabar Island Mansion.
After that freaking Scientist guy took the Sapphire from the Dotted Hole on Six Island, I had to go after it. I took the ship back to Five Island, and I headed to the meadow there until I reached the Team Rocket Warehouse. I managed to get inside after doing some tinkering, and I stepped through the warehouse on those spinning tiles. I was spinning around from place to place, but I managed to stop to pick up some items that were around the warehouse. I battled a couple of Team Rocket grunts, and then I made my way around to the other side of the warehouse to battle against the Admins. I fought the female admin first, but her Arbok gave me a ton of trouble, and then her Vileplume used Stun Spore to paralyze two of my Pokemon. I finally beat her with some luck, but I had to heal my Pokemon at the Pokemon Center.
After years of not playing my Leaf Green, I only hours ago booted it up again, after re-starting my Emerald I was happy to continue my LG adventure - I have a team i'm very pleased with.
The very first pokemon I encounter is a shiny Meowth! Hurray!
I entered the Cinnabar Mansion and went around exploring. I soon found out that there were gates that would only open and closed if you pressed a Hidden Switch. After playing around for a bit on the first floor, beating all the trainers and picking up items which are mostly minerals I headed to the second floor. I went to the third floor, beat the Robber and got the item and went back down. I did everything in the second floor and headed up the other stairs to got to the third floor. I wandered around and fell through a hole. I then baytled a trainers and went lower down. I wandered around, flicking switchs and battling trainers. I then picked up TM Blizzard. I really powerful Ice Type move. I then continued in until I came to a room. I picked up the Key off the table and TM for Solar Beam. I left and healed.
After finally training everyone to Lv. 60, it was time to challenge the Elite 4! Here are the stats of my Pokemon: (Waveshell is level 61, the rest are 60)
HP: 185/A: 137/D: 147/SA: 122/SD: 161/S: 122
HP: 156/A: 157/D: 82/SA: 89/SD: 98/S: 159
Brick Break/Earthquake/Megahorn/Sludge Bomb
HP: 183/A: 145/D: 119/SA: 115/SD: /S: 116
Thunderpunch/Psychic/Ice Punch/Brick Break
HP: 181/A: 113/D: 111/SA: 122/SD: 152/S: 99
HP: 256/A: 113/D: 69/SA: 110/SD: 88/S: 76
Thunderbolt/Tri Attack/Thunder/Thunder Wave
HP: 140/A: 94/D: 149/SA: 161/SD: 108/S: 108
(Both Hypno and Wigglytuff were traded, and Hypno got the elemental punches via egg moves)
I headed into the first room and challenged Prima, the Ice type Elite 4 member. I also thought that she shouldn't be the first, rather the second due to difficulty. Both Re-Coil and Slumby managed to defeat most of her team, though Re-Coil had some difficulty with Lapras, and even when in love with a Jynx, Waveshell managed to defeat it with ease.
2nd up was Bruno, who was pretty easy. Waveshell defeated his Onix, with Kazooie, Poizapunch, and Slumby easily defeating the rest of his fighting types, save for Machamp. Bruno was smart and out for Onix, but Poizapunch defeated it with ease. 3rd up was Agatha, who was annoying as always. I defeated her first Gengar with Waveshell, but Golbat was a bit of trouble with Kazooie thanks to confusion, but I still beat it. Arbok was defeated by Slumby, and Pukurina took down both Haunter and Gengar.
Final of the Elite 4 was Lance, and he was not having a good time. His Hyper Beam missed, and he used Dragon Rage mostly for the first few attacks. He did start to turn it around by getting a critical hit, but only got it once. Re-Coil took off Gyarados, Slumby and Pukurina took out the two Dragonair, and Waveshell was able to stand up to Dragonite and Aerodactyl, with the help of a Hyper Potion. But there's just one more trainer to face, and that's the champion...
Okay, okay, okay!
Where do I start? Probably where I left off.
So, I evolved Winry into Gyarados. I got it's level up to match the rest of my team. I wish I had some better attacks for her, but what she has will suffice for now. I also got rid of my Pikachu. I don't need five members on my team right now. Four will suffice quite nicely for the time being.
I polished off the rest of the S.S. Anne, including Green. First came Green's Pidgeotto, against Winry. Thanks to Intimidate, Winry barely took any damage from everything that Pidgeotto threw at me. After a few Tackles, I dropped it. Next came his Raticate, and I switched to my Mankey. Two Karate Chops was all it took to fell that Raticate for good.
His third was his Kadabra. Once again, I was back to Winry. Green got a bit of hax here. Winry was Paralyzed from a previous trainer, and that really put a damper on things. First round, he used Kinesis on Winry, and she was unable to attack due to Paralysis. Second round, Kadabra used Disable. For a trainer who prides himself on his ability, how did he not know that Disable would do nothing? Once again, Winry was unable to attack. Third round, Kadabra used Disable, and Winry was finally able to attack with Bite. Fourth round, Kadabra once again used Disable, disabling Winry's Bite, rendering her unable to attack again. Fifth round, Kadabra used Confusion, and Winry used Tackle. Sixth round was the same thing, and Winry beat Kadabra.
Finally, he used his Charmeleon. I sent back out Mankey, and slapped him around using Karate Chop a bit. He got a lucky crit with Ember, though, and dropped my Mankey. Winry was pretty weakened, so I didn't use her. Instead, I sent out Edward. Edward outsped Charmeleon, and I got off a Sleep Powder. Next round was a Leech Seed. Then, I used one Razor Leaf, which got a crit, and bam, fainted Charmeleon and my victory!
I moved on to the Captain's cabin. Helped him out, and was rewarded with HM01: Cut. Taught that to Edward, replacing his Tackle. I left the S.S. Anne, and watched it depart. Left the docks, and went back to the Pokemon Center.
"And then it was now. And then I don't know what happened."
Here's my team:
Edward (♂) Lv. 23
Winry (♀) Lv. 23
Mankey (♀) Lv. 22
Alakazam (♂) Lv. 23
The Champion turned out to be none other than Ranjit Oak! Somehow he trained his Pokemon faster than mine and became the Pokemon League Champion. Thus he asked me if it knew what it meant, and then told me:
"I AM THE MOST POWERFUL TRAINER IN THE WORLD!!!"
Thus the epic war began with him leading with Pidgeot, while I similarly led with Fearow. I got in a good Return, while he Featherdanced, lowering my Attack. I switched for Re-Coil to Thunderbolt it away. Then it went for Arcanine went I sent Poizapunch. I went for Earthquake but his Flamethrower did more, so I switched for Waveshell. He switched as well, for some reason, but went to Rhydon. I Surfed it away, and then he went to his starter. I sent out Fearow again, while he set up a Sunny Day, I 2HKO'd it with Drill Peck.
Next up was Alakazam. I sent out Pukurina and was surprised that it didn't even get to half health when hit with a Psychic. I Shadow Balled, he healed, then Flamethrowered and then got the KO with another Shadow Ball. Gyarados was next. Slumby was sent out, but his Thunderpunch wasn't doing as much as expected, and he used two more Full Restores on Gyarados while it just used Dragon Rage. I still got the win, though.
Last up was his Arcanine again. I wanted Poizapunch to get the win, so then everyone would've KO'd something. I sadly sacrificed Kazooie while healing Poizapunch, and beat Arcanine with an Earthquake, winning me the title!
Professor Oak came and congratulated me while scolding his grandson. He deserved it. I then entered the Hall of Fame, leaving behind my memories while seeing the credits... But the journey's not over yet.
I left the Pokemon Centre and headed to the Gym. Since I had the Secret Key I could now enter. The Gym leader was called Blaine. He specialised in the Fire Type. The gym was a very simple layout. There were a bunch of trainers and little box things. The thing asked you a question, If you got it wrong you face a trainer, get it right you proceed. I answered the questions correctly but I talked to and battled the trainers anyway. I did this all the way through the gym. When I got to the Gym leaders room I exited the gym to heal. I then went back to the Gym leaders room and saved. We talked for a bit. He said one oft favourite quotes, "You better have Burn Heal!". The battle then began.
I returned from the Five Island Pokemon Center, and I proceeded to the back of the Team Rocket Warehouse at Five Island Meadow. I got there and after chatting with the final admin, we began to battle. I had a relatively easy time against his first two Pokemon since my Pokemon were fully healed, but his Houndoom was a bit difficult. I managed to take it down with Lapras's Hydro Pump eventually, and then the Team Rocket admin guy left. I only had to battle one more trainer within the warehouse (the Scientist), and once I had defeated him, he handed me the Sapphire that he stole from the Dotted Hole before. I left the island and returned to One Island. I gave the Sapphire to Celio, and he fixed his machine. I saved before leaving to Six Island again.
After being dragged out of the Elite 4 by Prof. Oak, I am told I have to complete the National Dex... Yeah, that's never going to happen. I head over to One Island with my team, and talk to Sealeo- I mean Celio. He told me to find jewels or something. I head to Mt. Ember, and over here some Rocket Grunts in the east mentioning a code to their secret hideout. We defeat them and get one of my favorite lines in the game:
“Develop amnesia conveniently and forget everything you heard!”
I drive them off and enter the cave to find a non-Kanto Pokemon, Slugma! I use Strength deeper in the cave and find... Braille. What, did they expect people to feel a video game? We then find a Ruby. I return it to Celio, and he tells me to find a Sapphire. Thankfully he didn't ask for an Emerald. I was given a Rainbow Pass which allows me to go to some more islands where we meet...
Ranjit the Rival! How did he get a Rainbow Pass? The Day Care is here, allowing us to breed Pokemon. There is also a guy who gives out stickers (why are stickers important in the Pokemon world? You can get them for only a few bucks here), two guys Sumo Wrestling- I mean Body Slamming, a ton of plush dolls, and an Ice Cave. We go into the Ice Cave and encounter the Pokemon Swinub, plus Ice puzzles. Eventually we get the HM for Waterfall.
I don't want to teach it to Waveshell, he already has two HMs already. So I go back to the Pokemon Center and get my Seaking. Fun fact is that in the older games, Seaking could learn Waterfall via level up, and the HM didn't even exist. I teach it Waterfall and go up a nearby waterfall, and find Lorelei, first Elite 4 member, picking on some Rocket Grunts.
For some reason, Lorelei's mad just because they're catching Pokemon. Sure they're selling them, but Swinub are only found here in these games, and not everyone has a Rainbow Pass. And everyone has Golbats and stuff anyway. Either way, we beat the Grunts, and I even somehow use my freshly caught Seaking to defeat a Zubat 8 levels higher than it. Anyway, we kick them out, and I save by the dock.
"When we last left our hero, Lt. Surge had bowed his head in defeat. With the Thunderbadge in hand, he set off for Lavender Town via Rock Tunnel!"
Ok, bad impression of the narrator aside...
I left Cerulean City and headed eastward. I beat several trainers along the way. I got very lucky with which Pokemon I lead each trainer battle with, using my Alakazam against Poison-types, Winry against Fighting-types, my Mankey against Rock-types. Edward didn't see much use, except against a couple of Onix. I made it to the entrance to the Rock Tunnel, right outside the Pokemon Center there.
Here's my team:
Edward (♂) Lv. 24
Winry (♀) Lv. 25
Mankey (♀) Lv. 25
Alakazam (♂) Lv. 25
After saying the almighty quote the battle began. He started with his Growlithe while I went Vaporeon for obvious reasons. I used Surf which was a One Hit KO. He then sent out his Ponyta. I used Surf which also was a One Hit KO. He then sent out his Rapidash. He used Stomp which made me Flinch. I used Surf but he used Bounce. He landed and I used Surf. It also was a One Hit KO. he sent out his Arcsnine, his ace Pokemon. I used Surf which unbelievably was a One Hit KO. I won! Except from Brock this was the easiest Gym Battle I've had in the game. He gave me the Volcano Badge and the Fire Blast TM. I left. On the way to the Pokemon Centre I met Bill! He asked me if I wanted to go with him to a place called One Island. I declined for the moment. He said that he will wait at the Pokemon Centre. I healed and Surfed East towards Seafoam Islands.
On Five Island, we surf up North for a bit, fighting a few trainers a long the way. An old man examined my Pokemon, but didn't do anything about it. We end up at Resort Gorgeous, where we meet two new trainer types, Lady and Painter. We keep surfing and end up lost in Lost Cave. Gee, what an original name.
It turns out the only way to progress is find out how many rocks there are in each room, and go in that number in the direction of the clock. (6 rocks mean to go South, 12 rocks mean to go North.) A few trainer fights later we meet Silphy, some random lady that we save and she gives us nothing unless we show her a Closyer. I don't even have a Shellder!
We Fly back to the island and go East, finding some more Rocket Goons, though we can't go into their hideout unless we get the 2nd super-secret passcode. The 1st one was "Goldeen need log" Palindromes for the win! Going further, we find some Bird Catcher Bros., and a man with his dead Onix, Tectonix... We give him some Lemonade as an offering, and he lets us have the TM for Facade.
Then it was time for Six Island. After arriving, we Surf north, encountering trainers and a very weird lady who wants Heracross. We go into the nearby forest that suspiciously looks like the inside of a game cartridge. Sure enough, there are Heracross there. It took a few Ultra Balls, but with Pukurina's Sing we got a Heracross. After beating everyone, I Fly back and show it to the crazy Heracross lady. She was astonished by it and we get a Net Ball for it, which gives a better chance to catch Water and Bug types. I then Save my game back at the Pokemon Center after depositing the Heracross back.
I came upon my rival, Gary, after numerous minutes of healing and reviving my fainted and badly injured team after defeating Lance. Next, we battled, I destroyed his Gyrados in one hit with Thunder from Jolteon. Seeing his next Pokemon was going to be Pidgeot, I stayed put right where I was, and struck yet again with Thunder via my Jolteon, a one hit KO. Before he had a chance to send out his Venasaur, I quickly took out my Arcanine and blasted the Pokemon with Fire Blast, but alas, it only got the lucky Pokemon down to red. Knowing Gary would use a Full Restore, I quickly planned a bite to take off the first few hit points, and after a few seconds of waiting, destroyed it with Fire Blast. The rest was exceptionally easy, with only 3 hits of Bite on Alakazam from my Arcanine and a Hydro Cannon from my Blastoise to finish off his Arcanine. After defeating him, I walked on with Prof. Oak and went into the glorious hall of fame, smiling and head high.
Emerald: Lvl 67Lvl 59Lvl 60Lvl 51Lvl 49Lvl 50
FireRed: Lvl 65Lvl 59Lvl 56Lvl 59Lvl 60HeartGold: Lvl 55Lvl 50Lvl 51Lvl 53Lvl 50Lvl 50PlatinumLvl 25Lvl 24Lvl 26Lvl 27 (Game In Progress)
I entered the Island and went down all the ladders just to find myself at the wrong entrance. So I flew to Fuchsia and went to the Seafoam Island via there. I entered and explored for a bit. I found out that I had to push Boulders down the holes on the floor. I did so and continued on. I picked up a few items including a Water Stone. I went down a few ladders and found myself in a room which was full of boulders I did the little puzzle and fell down one of the holes. I swam across a bit and then found land. I then found myself face to face with Articuno, the Legandary Bird Pokemon. It was an Ice type so I put Arcanine up front. I saved and talked to it.
Entered Rock Tunnel, and began my arduous journey to Lavender Town. Since Edward is my lowest leveled Pokémon, I chose to lead with him. He proved to be quite a star through the Tunnel, nearly one-shotting almost every Pokémon I encountered with Razor Leaf. I tried to avoid random battles, to save as much PP as I could, but if I got into a situation where I knew I could one-shot my enemy, I did. Along the way, I saw a few new Pokémon like Cubone and Graveler. I also ran into the Pokémon Trainer and Hiker version of Pat Benetar. You know, the one who says “Hit me with your best shot,” before the battle and, “Fired away,” when you beat him. Came across the Rock Slide move tutor as well. I declined to learn it for now, though.
Eventually made it to the other side of Rock Tunnel, but not entirely to Lavender. I still had a few trainers to take care of; the first of which had Pidgey and Pidgeotto, and continually spammed the hell out of Whirlwind. After a few trainers, I made it safely to the limits of Lavender Town. Whoo hoo! I’m so excited to get my Gastly. Damn shame that I can’t yet, because I don’t have the Sylph Scope. So, I decided that I would just climb the tower enough to trigger the scene with Green. There’s so much speculation about whether or not his Raticate is dead, since you only see it once and never again. Upon talking to him, he’s the typical Green, and it’s time for a Rival Battle! His five against my four.
Fight 1: Pidgeotto vs. Alakazam. This one ended just as fast as it began. Psybeam pulled off a critical hit, and felled Pidgeotto.
Fight 2: Gyarados vs. Alakazam. First Psybeam dropped Gyarados down to the yellow, so I figured a second would polish him off. Well, Gyarados whomped me with Thrash, and took Alakazam down to 25 HP. Second Psybeam left him with a shred of HP left, and his Thrash stomped me. Sent out Winry and felled his Gyarados.
Fight 3: Exeggcute vs. Winry. Winry bit Exeggcute and brought it down to the red, and Exeggcute Seeded Winry. Second bite felled the Exeggcute.
Fight 4: Kadabra vs. Winry. Again, Winry used Bite, bringing Kadabra down to the red. Kadabra used Kinesis. A second bite was all I needed to take out his Kadabra.
Fight 5: Charmeleon vs. Mankey. Finally, Mankey sees some action! But, he was promptly shut down. I used Karate Chop, and hit Charmeleon for a little over a third of its HP. He used Ember on me, and did a little more than a quarter. Figured I was in the clear. NOPE! Second round, I used Karate Chop again, and he used Ember again. His Ember was boosted by Blaze, left my Mankey with 6 HP then burned her. The burn subsequently felled my Mankey. Sent out Edward, and slept the Charmeleon, then proceeded to Razor Leaf until I fainted the Charmeleon.
After the fight, I headed over to Route 8 to make my way toward Celadon City. Along the way, Mankey evolved into Primape! Which is a good thing, considering that she was starting to become lacking in power. Even with a Super Effective hit, it was taking two, sometimes three, hits to just drop something. I also caught myself a Growlithe. He's only level 17 right now, which is a bummer. I'm going to spend some time leveling him up to match the rest of my team for now. I figure having him around will help against Erika, in case Alakazam's offense and Edward's defense isn't enough to defeat her.
Well, here’s my team as it stands right now:
Edward (♂) Lv. 28
Winry (♀) Lv. 28
Primeape (♀) Lv. 28
Growlithe (♂) Lv. 17
Alakazam (♂) Lv. 28
The battle began. I sent out Arcanine and used Flame Wheel. Despite being a Critical Hut it only got it to the low yellow. It used Mind Reader. I whittled it down to red with a few Aerial Aces. I later got frozen by Ice Beam. After being frozen I finally thawed and got the final Aerial Ace. I was now in the catching zone. I threw an Ultra Ball. It broke out however. I threw another and another and another but it kept breaking out. After a while Arcanine fainted so I went to Raichu. I used Thunder Wave. I then threw some more Ultra Balls. Raichu fainted so I sent out Vaporeon. After 30 something Ultra Balls I caught it. I used Dig and flew to the Rock Tunnel.
I pass the Pattern Bush forest, fighting a few trainers along the way. At the end I find a lone Rocket Grunt complaining about there being nothing in the Altering Cave. All I found were Zubats, so I Flew back to the island and took the route South, encountering a mountain with tons of Hikers, but encounter a wall with Braille on it. We'll come back to that later.
I then traveled to Seven Island. I headed north to the Trainer Tower, but I never really do that so I traveled South, finding many trainers along the way. What was annoying is the most of them healed when their Pokemon's HP was low, which was very annoying. I also encountered a random set of boulders, that when pushed into the right slots, will let us capture Unown Pokemon later.
This will be a great spot to train for the next fight against the Elite 4. Specifically because there's a house with some weird guy and a Chansey doing the Chansey Dance, which, if you do it, automatically heals all your Pokemon!
Once I got to Six Island, I visited the local Poke Mart and I purchased items that would help me during the next leg of my journey around the Sevii Islands. I left to the Green Path afterwards, and I battled some Swimmers along the way. I arrived at the smaller island there and I battled the trainers in the area. I visited the house with the lady who was looking for a Heracross, and then I entered Pattern Bush. I spotted some new Pokemon like Ledyba and Heracross, so I captured those. I eventually made it out of there after battling all the trainers within the forest, and I Surfed west to Outcast Island. There were even more trainers in the water around the island, and I spent a good 10 minutes training there. I saved before going inside Altering Cave.
