    I entered the Laverre City Gym and I had to solve the warp-tile puzzle and move around the dollhouse-shaped Gym on those teleportation tiles. I already knew how to reach Valerie's spot since I had experience with this particular Gym puzzle, but I wanted to battle against all of the Gym trainers inside for some extra experience, so I wandered around randomly looking for trainers. I battled a black-haired Furisode Girl and I beat her Dedenne and Azumarill with Venusaur's Petal Dance, then I battled a brunette Furisode Girl at the bottom right corner of the Laverre Gym and I defeated her Aromatisse with Pyroar. I battled two more Furisode Girls and their Fairy-type Pokemon and I saved before battling Gym Leader Valerie.

    First up, chain fishing!
    From what I've read and what I've personally experienced, the shiny charm makes the most difference in actual wild pokemon encounters or MM breeding. My personal advice is try running around a bunch of friend safaris now that you have it, you can easily get a shiny or two that way pretty quickly.

    After arriving at Gym Leader Valerie's location after teleporting around, I finally battled her and I sent out my Pyroar against her Mawile. I defeated Valerie's Mawile with Flamethrower which was very effective and then I switched out to Lucario in order to battle her Mr. Mime, which I attacked with Payback. Mr. Mime survived the attack though and countered with Psychic. That damaged Lucario, but another Payback beat Mr. Mime. Only Valerie's Sylveon remained and I used Pyroar against it. Pyroar attacked Sylveon with Fire Fang, but Sylveon survived. After withstanding its Dazzling Gleam attack, I switched back out to Aerodactyl and beat Sylveon with Aerial Ace. I then obtained the Fairy Badge from Valerie and saved.

    I decided to EV train this Landorus I transferred over from Gen V a while back. First, I had to give it Pokerus, so I put one of my Pokerus Pokemon in my party and then went to the Battle Chateau. Landorus caught the Pokerus after only one battle, but I did several more trainer battles before leaving as I wanted to train my Florges up a few levels. When I was done with that, I EV trained Landorus by winning a bunch of Horde Battles. Then, I trained it a little more by fighting a couple trainers at the Chateau. Will continue training later today.

    I exited the Laverre City Gym after getting the Fairy Badge and Dazzling Gleam TM from my good sis Valerie. I encountered Shauna and Trevor outside and they asked me to go to the Poke Ball Factory. I healed my Pokemon at the Pokemon Center, then I went north of Laverre City and met my friends outside the factory. Shauna went ahead and Serena and Tierno arrived as well. Then Shauna and Trevor came running since they were being chased by some Team Flare grunt. Now that nobody was guarding the entrance, I could explore the area some more. I moved around the maze outside to pick up a few items, then I entered the actual Poke Ball Factory and battled a Team Flare grunt and his Toxicroak and the entrance.

    That's what I thought but I was able to catch a shiny Poliwirl in record time. (For me, usually it takes me an hour or two but this time it took only 15 minutes.)

    I ran around in the safari for a while and haven't got any yet but I've only been there for about half an hour.

    After I defeated the first Team Flare grunt inside the Poke Ball Factory, I continued to wander around on conveyor belts. I battled several Team Flare grunts around the factory and I found a room where I healed my Pokemon thanks to the people inside. I went out to explore more of the factory and I entered one of the main offices and some Team Flare members talking to a man inside. I had to battle against a Team Flare Admin next. I beat her Scraggy and her Houndoom with Greninja, then I had to battle against the two Team Flare scientists, Celosia and Bryony. Sreena arrived and teamed up with me. Serena's Meowstic beat Manectric and I used Lucario's Aura Sphere to defeat Liepard and we won the battle.

    X: Today's Pokeradar target was Azurill. I went out to Route 3 and got one quite quickly, but the chain also broke quickly as usual. I continued by doing some more Mega Evolutions, used Mega Stones and added the following Megas to my Pokedex: Gengar, Manectric, Abomasnow and Tyranitar. I now only have 2 left of the Mega Evolutions that I can and will view, though I might have to do some small things before I am able to view them.

    Y: Started here by going through Reflection Cave. Literally going through it, since I couldn't use my bike or skates. It was full of mirrors, which is cool. Along the way, I battled all trainers, picked up all items and caught Mr. Mime, Solosis, Wobbuffet, Roggenrola, Carbink and Mime Jr. Along the way, my Skiddo evolved into Gogoat which makes it the first member of my team to be fully evolved. Hopefully it will be stronger from now on. I also turned off the Exp. Share after being done with the cave as I felt that my team had now gotten quite a lot of well-needed training.

    Arrived at Shalour City. Explored it, but didn't find a lot of interesting things... yet. Also couldn't enter the Gym because the Gym Leader wasn't there. I met Tierno and Trevor who told me to go to the Tower of Mastery at the north of town. Well, I don't really have any other choice. Also got a stone from Tierno, not sure what it might be useful for but I decided to keep it. Went to the Tower of Mastery where I met the Mega Evolution Guru and Korrina. The Guru told me that the stone I got from Tierno was just a regular old stone, but I decided to keep it anyway.

    Our other friends then arrived, and the Guru explained what was known about Mega Evolution. He told us that in order to accomplish it, we needed two things, a Mega Ring and a Mega Stone. And the Guru had one Mega Ring, but unfortunately only one. He wanted one of us to have it. Tierno, Trevor and Shauna all felt that they were too weak to deserve it, so that left me and my rival. Or perhaps I should call him by his actual name. Calem. He suggested that we should battle for the Mega Ring, and I agreed. We battled, and I defeated him. But I couldn't get the ring yet, had to go to the Gym and defeat Korrina first. She headed off to the Gym and I exited the Tower. Spoke to a Hiker in the city who wanted the stone I got from Tierno. I gave it to him, and he gave me a Sun Stone in return. Tomorrow, I'll challenge the Gym.

    After Serena and I defeated Team Flare Celosia and Bryony at the Poke Ball Factory, I spoke to the president of the company and I received the Master Ball item and a Big Nugget from him. I collected some items around the factory afterwards including a Metal Coat and Max Revive, then I returned to Laverre City and healed my team at the PC. With everything completed in Laverre City, I decided to journey to the next town. So I went east to Route 15/Brun Way and I battled against a Pokemon Ranger who jumped out of a bunch of leaves and I beat his Quagsire with Venusaur's Petal Dance and his Beartic with Pyroar's Flamethrower. I walked through more leaves and I picked up a Revive by some leaves and saved.

    Continued training my Landorus. I fought trainers in the Battle Chateau until it was around level 55, then headed over to Lumiose for a change in scenery. After battling in the restaurants, I returned to the Chateau and trained until Landorus was above level 70. I thought that was a good place to stop training it, so I put Landorus back in the PC.
    Other than that, I did a few little things. I sold a few items I didn't need and bought some more healing items. Also, I Wonder Traded away a few Pokemon, but didn't get anything noteworthy in return.

    I continued walking along Route 15 and I found a Net Ball in another clump of leaves and then I encountered and battled a Hex Maniac. I defeated her Chimecho with Greninja, then I wandered around the tall grass and I captured a wild Skorupi, Watchog and Mightyena. I then jumped off a ledge as I moved east and I picked up a Leppa Berry by a berry tree. I also battled another Pokemon Ranger and I beat his Watchog, Swoobat and Seadra with Raichu and Venusaur. As I moved forward, I battled another male Ranger and beat him too. I walked across a river after beating the fourth Pokemon Ranger on the route and I walked towards the water and I fished around with my Good Rod and caught a wild Basculine.

    FINALLY got a 5IV Quiet Litwick for my Trick Room team. Now I just need to train it up and get a 5IV Relaxed/Sassy (not sure yet) Bulbasaur for Mega-Venusaur by Thursday for the online competition. Bleeehhhh. Breeding starters with their 12.5% female sucks. Unless my luck is much better with Bulbasaur than it was with Litwick, I may just have to not compete in the event.

    Decided I wanted to catch Zapdos a couple of days ago, so I used this really good technique and encountered it 11 times.

    Fast forward a couple of days...

    Decide to go and catch it. I bought 100 Pokeballs, got my Watchhog off of Pokebank and headed to Sea Spirit's Den.

    I started off with my Dragonite by Fire Punching it a bunch, and then went to my level 30 Lapras and Water Pulse'd it until it was at around 5% (I had to revive Lapras like 4 times due to Zapdos's discharges until I could get enough damage dealt). Then I switched in my Watchog, used Hypnosis until it worked, and...

    I threw a Pokeball

    After fishing with my Good Rod, I Surfed across a nearby pond and picked up a PP Up. As I Surfed back to land and I found a wild Lombre in the water and I caught it. I wandered through some more tall grass, then I passed some stone ruins on the road as I moved east and I used Rock Smash to break a rocky wall apart to reach a Protein. I continued to move around Brun Way and I battled against two Mysterious Sister trainers. I battled against their Drifblim and Floette and beat them with Lucario and Aerodactyl, then I got a Holo Caster message from Lysandre. After that I caught a wild Floatzel after Surfing on a river. I then reached some bigger ruins than the one I encountered before by some tall grass and flowers.

    I used Rock Smash and broke apart a rock to get a Macho Brace on Route 15. I went through some tall grass to reach the entrance of a big ruin on Brun Way since my Dowsing Machine was signaling that there was an item nearby , but I had to battle against a Hex Maniac first. After I beat her Litwick and Duosion with Raichu, I went around the ruin and found a hidden X Defense, then after I battled against a Fairy Tail Girl trainer and her Dedenne and Aromatisse and passing through some flowers in front of the ruin and catching a Klefki, I decided to enter the Lost Hotel from the northern side. I headed down a staircase and walked around a bit until I quickly exited the ruin in order to heal my Pokemon.

    After capturing a wild Klefki, I quickly wandered towards the gatehouse that led into Dendemille Town. Once I had arrived in Dendemille Town, I walked just a few steps before I encountered Professor Sycamore and his assistant Dexio again there in town. Sycamore spoke about Lysandre's cafe some more among other things and about the Legendary Kalos Pokemon named Xerneas. He then headed out and I met Trevor and spoke to him there too. I then visited the local Pokemon Center once that conversation was over since I had to heal my Pokemon quickly after I purchased some MooMoo Milk outside from someone. After healing my team and stocking up on some Ultra Balls, I got an O-Power from Mr. Bonding.

    So, I'm EV training on Wingulls last night... Boom. A horde of Zangoose appears. Amidst them, a shiny Seviper. The Zan's killed it off before my Venusaur could pick them off. I died a little inside.

    I've been working on completing my x version pokedex, I still have roughly 190 pokemon to go. (woo hoo) I've been lvl grinding in the friend safaris for the past week on and off to evolve pokemon for the Dex, and with luck I've already found 4 shiny pokemon. Quiladin, Woobat, Audio, and Eevee in that order. I found the first two in the same day, one on the way to town and the other on the way back. I also have been spamming wonder trade with random starters like charms see and totodile that I have hatched just for that reason. I haven't really gotten anything good other than people's junk pokemon. Occationaly I get a pokemon with pkrs or 5-6IV (it's always awesome when I do) I put them in my bank for safe keeping until I decide on what I want to do with them. Once I complete the Dex I planon doing some shiny hunting and MM for the heck of it. Then I will start to make competitive teams for all the random battle invites I get.

    After spending a few days finding a Sableye friend safari I've been hunting a shiny one for 2 days, no luck yet but I found a shiny Crawdaunt which is kinda lame since it's fishable.

    I finished the power plant, got back to Lumiose city, started battling the trainers in the gym and realized that my pokemon were at the highest level of the gym >.> After that I beat Clemont, went to Lysandre's cafe, and finally beat Calem but lost malamar so I replaced it with my shiny espurr =).

    Okay! Lots to talk about! I downloaded X the other night, but more on that later. First, Y.

    I was going to drop Venusaur from my team, but I ended up giving Doublade the axe, mostly because I'm not getting a Dusk Stone until Terminus Cave. Some people would take Eviolite Doublade that far, but not me. Even with Eviolite, I still fear special attackers, and even with Swords Dance, Shadow Sneak is still too weak. Besides, now that Aerodactyl knows Iron Head, I'm pretty sure I can handle Fairy-types efficiently enough (more importantly, Diantha's Mega Gardevoir). Eh. I have a few Heart Scales stockpiled, so when I do get a Dusk Stone, I just might evolve it, teach the moves I want it to know, and go on a training binge.

    Anyway, I beat Valerie, explored Routes 15 and 16 along with the Lost Hotel, and cleared Team Flare out of the Frost Cavern. Tomorrow's gonna be a marathon: fight Serena and Olympia, then wreck Team Flare's **** once and for all and take a break from Y over the vacation.

    Now for X. I chose the girl and picked Chespin. From there I beat Shauna's Froakie, went through Santalune Forest, and caught a Pansear and Pikachu, both of which I trained up for insurance versus Viola. Also, I ended up catching a Riolu, which I really want to use considering I wasted all but one of my Poke Balls catching it, but at the same time I can't really justify it because I'll probably use both it and Chesnaught the same way, made all the worse since Flash Cannon is a postgame TM, which at least gives me the option of using it as a special attacker, but the best Fighting move I can give either of them that I would be able to use reliably is Brick Break, and that's... kinda weak, all things considered. Meh, I won't use it, since I plan to use Flygon anyway, and I'd rather not repeat too much of my Black 2 team if at once if I can help it.

    Anyway, after another tangent, today I challenged the Santalune Gym. Chespin's total Rollout domination meant I didn't need my two insurance policies (and it even evolved into Quilladin afterwards), so I ended up boxing them. I made it to Lumiose City without any problems after catching a Ralts to use as a Teleporter, beat Professor Sycamore and got a Charmander for my trouble, which I plan on using on my team.

    Y Team:

    Kero/M-Greninja
    Sarabi/F-Pyroar
    Bramble/M-Venusaur
    Tombstony/M-Aerodactyl
    Stella/F-Sylveon
    Celes/-F-Jolteon

    X Team:
    Quilladin
    Charmander
    Pokemon Y Friend Code: 3282-3535-2249

    Friend Safari: Pansage, Petilil, Gogoat

    As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.

    So, after a week of playing Soul Silver and Emerald i have returned to my X Playthrough.

    Started with a Surprisingly easy Gym battle. Flipper and Walnut Swept through the Gym Trainers with no problem. Then Flipper almost 1HKO'd Grant's Amaura. Walnut Didnt have as much luck with Tyrunt, but it went down in about 3 hits. After the gym, i Brought in Snorlax to help clear out Connecting cave and get Aerial Ace for Quintly. Also used Snorlax to help catch a luvdisc. On the way to do the Steelix trade Krabby hatced from its egg. Once i Deposited Snorlax, Shell the Krabby, and my new Steelix I headed off to Geosenge Town. Quintly didnt do as much damage to the Lucario's as i expected, But Walnut and Shadow Claw managed to handle them. In Route 11 i caught my 3rd Offical Teammate, ZuZu the Dedenne. With Zuzu in hand i Decided to say Goodbye to Skatt and Flipper and put them in the PC. Then spent about a half hour training Zuzu on wild Sigilyph in route 10

    Chose to Take a break after the Training.

    Team
    Walnut/Quilladin lvl 29
    Quintly/Doduo lvl 28
    ZuZu/Dedenne lvl 24

    I headed to the changing room in the Pokemon Center after getting an O-Power and then I exited the building and headed back out to explore Dendemille Town. I wandered north around Dendemille Town and I spoke to characters outside and then I entered a house where I guy wanted to check my Kalos Mountain Pokedex to see how many Pokemon I had seen so far. I walked back outside after talking to him and visited another house where I obtained a Leppa Berry and also the Facade TM from a boy inside the same house as well. I arrived at the Move Deleter's house. After deleting one of Greninja's moves, I headed back outside and after swapping Pokemon at the Dendemille Town Pokemon Center, I saved.
