Black 2: Got a Snorlax from Yancy yesterday and a Teddiursa today. I evolved the Teddiursa into Ursaring. Only two more to get from her, than I am done with getting Pokemon from her.
White 2: Started playing this today. Went through all of the introductory stuff and found myself at Aspertia City. Went up to the lookout together with my Rival and found Bianca there. I picked Oshawott as my starter, and my rival challenged me to a battle, which I won. After the battle, Bianca showed me the way to the Pokemon Center and then we went out to Route 19 where she showed me how to catch a Pokemon. After that, I went back to Aspertia and activated Memory Link and Challenge Mode by linking with White and Black 2. I saw the first memory in the Pokemon Center. Before leaving the town for the moment, I got the Running Shoes and two Town Maps, one which I had to deliver to my Rival.
I left the town and headed out to Route 19 again. I captured a Patrat and a Purrloin, and at the end of the Route, I met Alder. He wanted to train me, something I of course said yes to. We headed into Floccesy Town, I explored it and met up with Alder again at the north of the town. He told me to deliver the map to my rival first, and then he would train me. So I headed out to Route 20. Battled the first three trainers here and captured a Pidove and a Sewaddle. I could not continue through the entire Route as a Hiker was blocking the way, he told me I needed one Gym Badge before getting past him.
I headed north towards Floccesy Ranch. Here, I captured a lot of Pokemon: Azurill, Psyduck, Lillipup and a Riolu, which will be the first member of my team. Before going further, I trained Riolu a bit on Route 20 and in the Ranch, catched a Mareep and a Sunkern in the process. After doing enough training, I continued further into the Ranch, and met my Rival again. Before I could give him the map, he challenged me to a battle. He had became stronger, but so have I, and I won against him again. After the battle, I gave him the map.
The owners of the Ranch appeared and told us that one of their Herdier had disappeared. So we went out to look for it. We went through the Ranch, I battled a few trainers here as well. At the end of the Ranch, I found the Herdier together with… some strangely dressed man. He said he was from Team Plasma, but didn’t want to battle, he just ran away. He left the Herdier, which could be returned to the owner.
I left the Ranch and headed back to Floccesy Town, where Alder was waiting. It was time to start with his training. He let me battle against two other trainers, each of them having an elemental monkey, and I defeated them both. Alder told me to go and challenge the newly opened gym in Aspertia City, so that was where I should go next.
After exiting his house, I met a strange man named Mr. Medal. He gave me a medal box and told me to start collecting medals. I guess I should be doing that, although it’s not like I have a choice or so. I exited Floccesy Town and headed out to Route 19 again, where I met Alder one more time. He gave me a few berries and told me to go and challenge the rest of the gyms in the region if I could beat the first one. I guess that’s not a bad idea…
I went back to Aspertia and into the Gym… which also is a Trainers School, quite cool. I went through the school and arrived at the Gym, where I met the Gym Leader and two other trainers. The Gym Leader presented himself as Cheren, and told me to battle the two other trainers before battling him. They took their positions, and I battled the two regular trainers. Both were an easy match for my Riolu. Then, it was time to battle Cheren.
I challenged him and won, but it was a bit harder than I had expected. His Patrat was OHKO’d by my Riolus Force Palm, but his Lillipup and Pidove were both 2HKO’d. I defeated him and got the Basic Badge and a TM containing Work Up. Not bad. I exited the Gym and met Bianca outside. Cheren had also followed me out, and we registered each other in our Xtransceivers. Then, my Rival appeared and challenged Cheren. I left the city, time to get to my next destination.
Headed out to Route 19 once more and continued to Floccesy Town and then to Route 20. The Hiker who was blocking the way did now allow me to get past him, if I battled him first. So I did. He also had a Riolu, but at a lower level than mine, so I won. He let me pass, and I went down a hill, when Cheren and my Rival appeared behind me. Cheren told us about the Double Grass and gave us some berries. My Rival stayed in the grass to train for a while, while I battled the remaining trainers on the Route, picked up a few items and captured an Audino. I arrived at Virbank City, where I saw the Gym Leader, Roxie, being angry at her father for not taking responsibility enough for his job. I entered the Pokemon Center, and this is where my journey ends for the day.
