Quite a bit has happened since my last entry.
After Sandslash stole the show at Elesa's gym, Will and I took on Team Plasma again in the city and showed them who's boss. Will is a ferocious battler!
The team and I then headed East and checked out Lostlorn Forest. I caught every Pokemon I found
Then we headed West where Bianca showed us what Hidden Hollows looked like and how to find them. We found one and I caught a Cincinno that has a peculiar ability to do max damage with multiple-hit attacks, a useful ability indeed!
Then I was challenged to a 3-way battle against The Heart Breaker Charles in front of a large crowd. I used Servine, Lapras and Growlithe and we won! Charles was embarrassed and drove off :'(
In Driftviel City we took some time to explore. It had a real busy and bustling atmosphere, with lots of tourists and huge hotels. We enjoyed our time here! I spoke to some Ex-Plasma members and Will seemed uncomfortable around them, not willing to accept that they have changed their ways. I hope we find his sister's Pokemon soon...
Then we came to Driftviel Gym. We where confident after our stunning victory over Elesa, but Clay and his gym where much more intimidating and imposing and the gym was quite hard to manouver around especially in the dark. We eventually found our way to Clay and challenged him.
Lapras made easy work of his Krokorok, next my Sandslash took on his and in a repeat of her battle against Elesa, she crushed her opponent! Finally the moment of truth: Servine vs Excadrill! Servine won, after a dazzling flurry of Leaf Blades vs Metal Claw!
Clay afterwards invited us to his new project, the PWT! I used Servine, Growlithe and Lapras in it, taking down Will, our friend Cheren and that mysterious Colress. He says nice things, but I just don't trust him.
Afterwards, we chased Plasma down to their frigate and CRUSHED them! The Shadow Triad came though and man, those guys are creepy.
We all went our separate ways then and the team and I chose to explore Relic Passage. It's amazing to think this passage has been here for hundreds of years and nobody knew about it!
Swablu was struggling and I had the feeling he just wasn't cut out for battling.
But, the good news was that, after battling a brave back packer, Servine evolved into Serperior! Awesome! He has come such a long way since the little critter he was, nervous to fight against Roxie. He can take on anybody now!
We eventually found a opening into what looked like the bottom of the buried Relic Castle. In one particular room we were attacked by a huge moth of fire!!! Growlithe fought it bravely and, after Jolteon paralyzed it, I threw an ultra ball and caught it! Back at the Pokemon Centre in Driftviel, I discovered it has a Timid Nature - perfect! Swablu told me he wanted to go play with all my other Pokemon so I let deposited him and withdrew my new Vulgamoth! She is awesomely powerful and with her by our side, we will surely win our next gym badge!
Til next time!
P.S. God I am loving this game! The gyms are fantastic, the designs are the best yet! I am loving my team! I also think, I like this Rival the same amount as the Rival from G/S. I love this rival's story, that he has a vendetta against Plasma and isn't mainly preoccupied with the League like Cheren and some other rivals where. I much prefer Cheren in this game. I also love my Rival's personality and phrases - 'heads up - I'm about to unleash my rage!' and then runs up to a Plasma grunt and sends him flying 'Start talking, you Team Plasma piece of trash!'. Gotta love him!
