After restarting in my house I got the SS Ticket from Professor Elm and set sail on the SS Aqua. I played hide and seek with the little girl and before I knew it I was in Vermillion City. I explored and then went to the gym. I beat the trainers easily enough and then I struggled with the gym's puzzle before finally finding the right switches and taking on Lt Surge. Genus managed to beat his Raichu and Electrode before I swapped to StunksALot to take out his Magneton with Dig. Raikou won against his second Electrode and StunksALot returned and defeated his final Electrode. I taught Raikou Shock Wave and then proceeded north to Saffron City.
Once again I explored before heading to the gym in this city. I beat the four trainers with Genus and StunksALot and got cocky so I challenged Sabrina. I tried out Kenya against her Espeon but it didn't work out considering that one Psychic beat Kenya. StunksALot was then sent out and beat both Espeon and Alakazam with Night Slash. Her final Pokemon was Mr Mime. For some reason I swapped out to Pwny and used an Ice Beam. It used Mimic and learned Ice Beam. Thanks to Light Screen none of Pwny's attacks were working so once Pwny fainted I swapped to Genus who was defeated by Ice Beam. Kepi was next out but fell from a critical hit Psychic. Raikou was next and she started spamming her Full Restores at this point. Due to carelessness Raikou fainted leaving me with only StunksALot. I go for the kill with Night Slash but it goes first and uses Ice Beam....CRITICAL HIT KNOCK OUT!!! For the first time in my life her Mr Mime caused me trouble.
