  1. Storm the Lycanroc

    Storm the Lycanroc Unova Bound

    Once I reached Opelucid City I immediately challenged the gym. Since I didn't have an exact counter for Dragon types most of the battles were ones of attrition. I slowly widdle down their health but proved victorious thanks to Exile, Mirage, Zephyr, and Sparta. After leaving the gym Team Plasma attacked and stole the DNA Splicers from Drayden.

    I reached Humilau City and searched all over the place for Marlon. I literally searched all of Route 21, Seaside Cave, and Route 22 for him but couldn't find anything. Turns out you have go to a certain spot in the city! Since I was so frustrated I rushed through the gym thanks to Tesla, Cedar, and Sparta.

    I've spent the last couple of hours pursuing Team Plasma around the map. Colress is probably the most difficult battle I've had so far in this playthrough. I ventured into Giant Chasm and fought Ghestis who proved more difficult since I didn't have any direct counters to his Pokemon. After beating him and talking to N I called it a night.

    I had successfully challenged and beaten 1/2 of the Elite Four last night. Though, I forgot to save and my DS ran out of power after I’d passed out.

    Started at the entrance to the E4 once more. Checked my party and realized, once again, I’d need to delete some HMs and relearn moves. Flew over to my Join Ave where I ranked up to 7 and a few shops were remodeled, due to their rise in rank. I plan to challenge and defeat the E4 and Champion on B2, tonight.

    Defeated the E4 and Champion in B2 and W2 over the last couple of days. Kept playing afterwards.

    Ultimately I caught all three Regis between B2W2. Got them all onto my W2 copy and caught the beast, Regigigas. Named it Big O.

  4. PokeMon2.0

    PokeMon2.0 Cramorant is too cute for words!

    I continued my journey in the Celestial Tower in White before I got to Skyla. I caught a male Litwick, named him Leto. I’m also going to catch an Elgyem in the Tower, or at least try to. I managed to make an opponents Musharna to flinch 3 times in a row before KOing it with my Unfezant’s Air Slash. Also, I managed to catch a female Elgyem.

    6th Gym:

    It was easy, my Zebstrika helped me get through without being damaged.
    On my way to Twist Mountain, I ended up catching some Pokémon, including a Watchog and some more.
    Doing some major team changes. My new team is:
    Searah (Pansear): Lv. 37: Shadow Claw, Bite, Fire Blast, Flame Burst.
    Watchy (Watchog): Lv. 33: Super Fang, Strength, Rock Smash, Hyper Fang.
    Mrtyakalis (Tranquill): Lv. 32: Roost, Detect, Taunt, Air Slash.
    Kodok (Palpitoad): Lv. 27: Mud Shot, Scald, Bulldoze, BubbleBeam.
    Klink: Lv. 26: ThunderShock, Gear Grind, Volt Switch, Charge Beam.
    Galeah (Joltik): Lv. 24: Fury Cutter, Electroweb, Bug Bite, Gastro Acid.
    And going to switch around some team members.
    So now my team is:
    Klink and Searah, +
    Leuweung (Unfezant): Lv. 33: Fly, Air Slash, Detect, Quick Attack.
    Callum (Scraggy): Lv. 24: Rock Tomb, Payback, Strength, Brick Break.
    Anoki (Samurott): Lv. 37: Slash, Cut, Scald, X-Scissor.
    Zeke (Zebstrika): Lv. 35: Flame Charge, Pursuit, Spark, Stomp.
    I went on to the Twist Mountain.
    I battled Cheren. His Unfezant was really easy, his Servine was too. Simipour was a bit harder.
    Doing some Surfing. First to Rt. 17/18 and the P2 Lab, and Mistralton Cave for the Cobalion/Terrakion/Virizion catching.

  5. Storm the Lycanroc

    Storm the Lycanroc Unova Bound

    I did some last minute training in Victory Road before challenging the Elite Four. Once my team was adequately leveled I entered the Pokemon League and easily beat the Elite Four. Champion Iris on the other hand was more difficult since her Hydreigon, Haxorus, and Archeops kept making my Pokemon faint. After using several restoration items I was able to beat her.

    My final team who ended up winning the championship was:
    Exile (Samurott)(M)
    - Ice Beam
    - Slash
    - Aqua Tail
    - Razor Shell

    Tesla (Ampharos)(M)
    - Power Gem
    - Light Screen
    - Discharge
    - Thunderbolt

    Sparta (Lucario)(M)
    - Quick Attack
    - Close Combat
    - Aura Sphere
    - Bone Club

    Zephyr (Braviary)(M)
    - Air Slash
    - Superpower
    - Crush Claw
    - Fly

    Ember (Arcanine)(F)
    - Extreme Speed
    - Will-o-Wisp
    - Fire Fang
    - Flamethrower

    Mirage (Krookodile)(F)
    - Crunch
    - Rock Tomb
    - Earthquake
    - Dragon Tail

    I’ve played a fair amount of post game on both of the sequels since defeating the E4. However, since I’ve played W2 as recently as this morning, I’ll just post about that.

    After acquiring Big O, it was time to see the parts of Unova ‘um Whom’ had not yet seen. Decided to fly to Castelia City and travel south, first. My Join Avenue’s rank increased to 8 this morning. Trainers weren’t too much of a hassle, most of my team’s levels are on par with the NPCs’. Made it to Nuvema, where I met Cheren’s and Bianca’s parents. Met the mom of the famous ‘Savage’ whom no one has heard from in two yrs. Also, finally got to see Juniper’s lab.

    Afterwards, I headed back to Route 1 where I faced off against some trainers I had initially avoided. Took a left and explored Route 17. Will most likely head down Route 18 when I resume.

    Current team:
    Fire Doge/Arcanine
    purp Sea⭐️/Starmie
    THE end/Dragonite
    Big O/Regigigas

    Restarted B again. After two days, i have

    Palpitoad - lvl 34
    Servine - lvl 32
    Gothita - lvl 25
    Sandile - lvl 23
    Darumaka - lvl 21 (will likely change him for the Litwick line)
    Vanillite - lvl 20

    The latter four need some training. I'm in Driftveil City now.

    Have done some on B2W2 since my last post. More recently, over in B2, I’ve discovered every flyable place. Defeated Alder and then my rival with intermediate difficulty, received a HA Eevee over in Castelia City, and began my ascent of Black Tower. I believe this Join Ave is rank 11, I’ve had Cheren and Roxie stop by so far. Have had quite a lot of success with my antique shops.

    I’ll probably continue to power through Black Tower, as half my team is underleveled and we’re aiming to beat Cynthia (at some point).

    Oh you/Serperior

    Eternalfalcon Unova champion

    A couple of weeks ago on my first playthrough of black I got to elesa’s gym and oh my god how hard it is to beat I think I’ve battled her about 13 times now and I still can’t win, the first 5 or so times I was just trying with the same team (which comprises of dewott tranquill and herdier I’m sure you can see the issue) over and over again, not making much progress I decided to go and train in the desert until I was strong enough that my type disadvantages didn’t matter, however, I got distracted by a shiny little pokeball that was holding the tm dig and in the heat of my excitement my brain naturally went gasp this will solve all my problems completely forgetting that she has emolga which can fly/glide and dig doesn't effect them like a idiot, so I did the only option left I went into the desert and caught myself a sandile but I'm already encountering an issue being that sandile doesn't get any good ground type moves that work against emolga until I think level 43, so yeah I think I'm just gonna have to struggle until I beat her

    Just finished pokemon Black with this team

    Reshiram / Lilligant (used Reshiram for E4 battle, but used Lilligant for all other occassions, normally i don't use legendaries, but the champion used Zekrom as well, so why wouldn't I? :p)

    All somewhat around lvl 45-50.

    In White 2 I will probably use Serperior, Krokodile, maybe Galvantula, maybe Seismitoad or another water pokemon, Darmanitan and the last one isn't decided yet.

    I recently bought a used copy of Black 2 and re-started the game just because I wanna play the game from the beginning. Chose Snivy as my starter Pokemon at the outlook spot and battled Hugh. I barely won with Tackle and then I healed Snivy and got the capture tutorial from Bianca at Route 19. Battled and caught a Purrloin, then I met Alder and he showed me the path to take from Floccesy Town to the ranch so I could find Hugh. But before leaving town I added Riolu and Togepi to my team that I sent over from the Dream Radar.

    I restarted White 2 last night. Chose Oshawott. Not only was it a female it has a Rash nature as well. Nicknamed her Mama Wott (might change it). I beat Hugh, whom I named ‘da boi’. Saved after that.

    Transferred some Pokémon from Dream Radar, Tornadus being among them. I hope to finish Dream Radar fairly soon, trying to acquire Ho-Oh, Dialga, and Palkia DBHA at lower levels.

    Wish I had Black 2. Still need to get it, but hard to find a new copy.

    Wolfaotic they / them

    Earlier today I started up my copy of White 2 to transfer a few Pokemon, and I keep getting the message "It has mail!" when attempting to deposit a Pokemon into my PC. I thought of it as nothing because the Pokemon in question (Arcanine) was holding nothing.

    However, it turns out that when looking at my party outside of the PC they do in fact have mail. Every single one of my Pokemon are holding mail, and the only way to deposit them is by giving them a hold item.

    The mail looks like this:

    Who is "!" and what do they want with me.

    I've been playing Black 2 for a bit and decided to use Darmanitan for the first time after my incredible experience with its Galarian Form. Sheer Force is killing it even in Challenge Mode. I'll finish the story and give it a Choice Scarf to see how it holds up in PWT.
