After getting the Pokémon Egg, I decided to go down Route 32, dodging all battles till I got to the Union Cave. I then found a Sandshrew and named it Doc. After capturing Doc, I decided to go back up Route 32 and battle everyone so that he could get some experience and level up a bit. After doing this, I entered Union Cave again and battled everyone till I made my way out to Route 33. Just before entering Azalea Town, I saw an old man talking to a very rude member of Team Rocket.
Upon entering Azalea Town, I saw that there were more Team Rocket members, and so to find out more about the situation, I went to talk to that old man. The old mans name is Kurt, and he told me that Team Rocket were cutting off Slowpoke tails. How cruel!!! ): So Kurt decides to run off to the Slowpoke Well on his own, and so I decide I should probably follow him as he didn't seem like he could handle much! And yes, I was right. He fell on his way down and injured his back -_-' So he says to me that he wants me to deal with it all. So I go further into the Slowpoke Well to see some more Team Rocket members and some Slowpokes. After battling 3 Team Rocket Grunts, I got to one of the Admins. His name was Proton and he had weird blueish, greenish hair. I was easily able to beat him using Doc. After being defeated, Team Rocket decided to leave Azalea Town for now. However, they still seemed adamant that no one will be able to stop their comeback! We'll see about that...
So after the Slowpoke Well scene, I go back to Kurt's house, and he tells me he makes Pokéballs from Apricorns. So I give him some Apricorns and he gives me a Fast Ball as a gift for everything I did. Cheap much?... Anyway I can now enter the second Gym, and so I did. I used Doc for all of the Gym's Trainers, as he needed to beat Scyther if he wanted to evolve later on. After beating all the Trainers and healing up, I was finally ready to take on Bugsy, the Bug Gym Leader.
Me and Doc are ready to beat that Bugsy dude!
So this battle turned out to be super easy. Reason being that I taught Doc the TM Rock Tomb that I found in the Union Cave. So with Scyther having a 4x weakness to Rock moves, Doc was able to Rock Tomb his way to victory. He can now evolve whenever he's ready =D After beating Bugsy, I received the Hive Badge.
Nothing much happened afterwards so I left the Gym and healed up. I was heading for Ilex Forest when my rival, Bob, appeared. He couldn't believe that I defeated Team Rocket and so he wanted to battle me to test my strength. Although he is normally a very weak Trainer, Bob posed quite a threat as his Croconaw had an advantage over both Mike and Doc. Although, luckily through the use of Smokescreen, I was able to eventually get the victory. Bob then seemed mad at his Pokémon and left Azalea Town. I healed up once again and left Azalea Town too. Upon entering Ilex Forest, I found an Oddish. I quickly captured her and named her Belle. I am now planning to get through Ilex Forest and arrive at Goldenrod City, where I can meet the next Gym Leader.
