In the forest, we met a man who was bashing his head against trees. He then taught Kindle how to do it as well. We also met another Kimono Lady, and somehow Nassie knew where the exit was and directed her there. Also, the Rattatta King Youngster Joey called, but he didn't brag on his Rattatta.
We exited the forest, got the TM for Taunt along the way, and battled a few trainers. We also met Lyra's Grandparents! After recieving many Pokegear Requests, we finally continue our journey into Goldenrod City. I heal my team and search for the Bicycle Shop. No one has bought a bike there, most likely because it's 1,000,000$. Instead of paying 1,000,000 Pokedollars, I get one for free by doing advertising.
We venture into the Department Store and buy a few Lemonades and X Items, and also participate in the Goldenrod Daily Drawing. Amazingly, the first pick we get was already a winner and I got the TM for Facade. Pretty cool, but I've got some decent movesets for my team already so I won't teach it to anyone. I forget to go into the basement, however. I then go to the Radio Tower, and after answering some easy questions, Whitney goes back to her gym. The gym, like Erika's, is full of girls (aside from the guy who tells us advice) and Normal types. My team defeats them all with little difficulty and thus we fight one of the hardest trainers in the game:
S.MachoMan OHKOs Clefairy with Brick Break. I switch to Nassie when Miltank is out, and set up a Reflect. Since my Exeggcute is Female, she won't have trouble with Attract. She does miss with Leech Seed once before hitting it. After hitting me with a critical-hit Stomp, Energy Ball brings it to less than half. I switch to S.MachoMan before the Reflect is broken and my fighter is attracted by the cow. However, he shook out of it, and Brick-Broke the Miltank, earning us the Plain Badge! At least after she cried.
