Since last time, I annihilated Drayden and, because I'm a lazy bastard, basically dealt with Team Plasma for much of yesterday. Also, I beat the last Gym Leader in between the Plasma stuff. I'm kind of disappointed that Ghetsis didn't appear before the Kyurem event. Oh well.
Most recently, I got Waterfall from N, and am now ready to take on... Victory Road. The ultimate test. My body is ready. Though I guess I already said that.
Please stop complaining about Pikachu losing to "weak" Pokemon at the start of each new region. Its power is drained at the start of each new region, and anyway, it's equally bad storytelling for Pikachu to plow through all of its opponents.
