Well the team and I took a break from conquering the White Tree Hollow and accepted an invite to compete in the World Leader contest of the PWT in Driftveil.
I have been told that if I emerge victorious from the World Leader tournament 10 times I will have the opportunity to compete against the Champions of the different regions, and this is my goal.
It is not enough that I have defeated the Sinnoh Champion.
But alas, my Grass Type Pokemon and I have been struggling.
But I am enjoying the extra challenge of defeating the game with my favourite Pokemon! It feels much better when you succeed and after a few attempts, I did win!
After lots of thought, I decided on...
I started off against Misty of Kanto.
Virizion survived a Psychic from her Starmie and OHKO'd her with Leaf Blade. Next she sent out Lapras, and she finished off Virizion with Ice Shard. Next I sent out Ferrothorn who proceeded to KO Lapras and Quagmire with Power Whip!
Next was Lt. Surge of Kanto! He led with Raichu, Virizion KO'd him easily with two Secret Swords but was left Paralyzed from Static and was promptly finished off by his Electivire's Ice Punch.
Next was a great battle between Ferrothorn and Electivire, using Power Whip and Cross Chop effectively. Electivire finished Ferrothorn off before KO'ing himself from Ferrothorn's recoil ability!!!
That left Ludicolo and Magnezone in a showdown! And Ludicolo emerged victorious using Surf!
Me vs Roxie!
I was worried about the type advantage of Roxie, and for good reason! She started with Scolipede and proceeded to OHKO Virizion with Poison Jab!
But I had a secret weapon in Ferrothorn, who swept her entire team utilising his immunity to poison and a Curse-boosted Gyro Ball! He took down Scolipede, Drapion, before Amoongoos paralyzed him! But that only made his Gyro Ball powerful enough to crush his defences!
Star of the tournament: Ferrothorn!!!
We were victorious! Only 9 more times to go!
