I started a new game on my Heartgold and started with Chikorita. I didn't nickname Chikorita or any of my team members since I can't think of any good names for them when I have a 5 character limit. I went ahead and trained Chikorita after all the tutorial crap. I arrived at Mr.Pokemon's and Chikorita was at level 8. I got the egg and my dex and went back to Cherrygrove to beat my rival with 2 razor leafs(I love crits). I gave the egg to Elm I learned how to catch pokemon and got 5 poke balls. I then headed on to Violet City and quickly went south to catch my next team member. I quickly caught me a wooper and then headed to Sprout Tower. I had to do the bait and switch gimmick since Wooper would get OHKOed by a vine whip. Wooper could handle the hoothoots though. After Sprout Tower I went to the gym. Wooper cleared out all the gym trainers. I then battled Falkner and my god it was annoying. Wooper got the Pidgey down to red health then it happened. Pidgey used Tackle! Critical Hit!(I hate crits now) Wooper fainted. So I was stuck with Chikorita. Chikorita took down Pidgey with ease but Pidgeotto came in and was trouble. I used poisonpowder first thing and poisoned it. He then used roost after a few turns of poison damage. I then followed along with his plan and spammed Razor leafs on his roost turns and I got into overgrow range and took it out. Yeah say Chikorita sucks now! I got the badge and then got the egg. I then quickly healed and headed south. I then caught my next team member mareep. I quickly beat all the trainers with my Pokemon. I then healed my team and obtained the old rod and some lure balls. I then entered Union cave and beat all the hikers and fire breathers. i then got out of the cave and saw a man fussing with a team rocket guy. I then entered Azalea and healed. I then went to Kurts and heard about Team Rocket. I then went to Slowpoke well and swept Team Rocket with Mareep. Mareep then evolved after the event and I then healed and headed to the gym. I quickly beat all the trainers and then battled Bugsy. I started with Flaaffy and used thundershock. Scyther went to half health and then it u turned and got a critical hit and OHKOed Flaaffy >_< I then sent in wooper and took out the cocoons. Scyther then came back in and it was paralyzed from static. Scyther used quick attack and got another crit! Wooper barely survived and hit it with a water gun and then Scyther got healed from its berry. Scyther then used quick attack again and KOed Wooper. I sent in Bayleef and used Tackle. Scyther barely survived and used u turn taking me down to 4 HP! Luckily Bugsy already used his potions on the cocoons. I then used razor leaf which had an overgrow boost that was unneeded and I won barely! i got the U turn TM and the badge. I then exited the gym, healed and saved.
