Honestly, since losing to Skyla, I didn't train much at all well..I did do some training, just a little. Buzz did learn Shock wave :]
I couldn't stand the thought of losing to her again, when I have an electric type & considering the shenanigans and troubles I've faced already since leaving Asperita. What troubles, you ask?Well, for those who haven't read my prev' posts, I've lost a total of 13 times to gym leaders, you could say I've been having sleepless nights.
I've realised that as well as bad type match ups ( I blame luck/fortune here) that the huge level gaps have just made it an impossible mountain to climb at times, and with most of my Pokemon having late evolutions, I honestly feel like I've been climbing a Mountain, Mount Everest to be exact..
Anyways, I only had one thing in mind. Rematch Skyla. Beat Skyla. & leave with the badge.
Nothing too much, just for once, for once, lets get this over without too much fuss (the fuss being me losing over and over again, aahh!)
I approached the battle very cautiously, using my Buzz carefully to sweep through her as often as I could.
I swear, Skarmory & sturdy is just so damn annoying. And what's the big idea with the level gap, I really need to train some more.
Her level advantages made this really tough, what would have been a OHKO was now a 2HKO.
She was virtually out speeding everything I had too.
Electabuzz learning shock wave was my only hope here.
In the end it came down to my Buzz & Golduck, and it wasn't straight forward. I had to think my way through strategicall as without those two I could not win at all. Without much fuss, I managed to beat her.
Though losing her to before kind of deflated the victory, but I digress..
It's been a constant up hill struggle, but maybe just maybe I can get a small break in the next few towns
as thankfully, I have no annoyingly over powered leaders to face for a while..phew :s
Losing like 13 times already, being at several disadvantages, I almost lost hope.
No, but seriously since Skyla I've had quite an easy few days in Isshu.
I headed to Lentimas Town, which is so quirky and awesome, it was like a vacation of some sorts..
..but arriving here meant that I could finally get my Eevee to evolve in to a Flareon!
Explored around the strangers house, headed for Reversal mountain & having never played W2 before I was shocked at how beautiful the burning lava was compared to the Blue-ish theme in B2. It was truely awe-inspiring :]
Anyways, I found a Camerupt & looking at it, something striked me - I have to catch that thing. I don't know why, but I just do.
Even though I had a Flareon, I decided to get one and perhaps use him after game?
After finishing the cave, I arrived in Undella & for once I felt I could just kick back & relax.
Not for long though as I soon ran in to Hugh, he challenges me to battle. Great.
I knew he'd be at least marginally stronger then B2 as I was on challenge mode..
And he was much stronger. His Emboar was like 5 levels higher then anything in my team!
Although he wasn't an easy fight, I was rather untroubled and got through unscathed..for once!
Headed north to Lacunosa, on the way Ferroseed evolved into Ferrothorn! Awesomeness! That was a great moment for me, for some reason or another..
Although I was having a rather chilled time and not facing any sto0pid over powered gym leaders, I did come to one point where I fought a triple battle where my team was rather low on health..I survived, just about..then arrived at Lacunosa..met Bianca & Proffessor Juniper..I later found Hugh up to his usual emotional barrages, helped him destroy those rather annoying Plasma guys, or should I say Black plasma guys..I really despise the sages, they really do think they're special, don't they?
I noticed that they were a good 4/5 levels up on me, with Drayden coming up this looked really bad...
At the moment, I'm at Village bridge. It's my favourite location in Isshu, I just love the scenery & village-feel.
You could say that by my standards, or the standards of this cruel play through, it's been rather quite lately.
Yeah, indeed it has. I do know however for a fact that with Drayden coming up things will get back to how they've been.
Yeah, I'm not comfortable with the idea of facing him. Ferrothorn may help, but being on challenge mode, I really don't think so.
Anyways, I should be heading to Opelucid soon but for now wish me luck guys!
*Hoenn is where the start is*
