wouldn't having a larvesta on your team decrease your team's hp due to the sandstorm?
Larvitar =/= Larvesta. Furthermore, Larvitar doesn't get Sand Stream until it becomes Tyranitar.

Trainer since 1997
Defeated Black Tower under 3 hours. (Don't know if that is fast, but I gained 600.000 PokeCash :-D)
SR'ed for a Jolly Likes to trash about Shiny Gible. (Took me half a hour.)
EV trained my Shiny Gible (It has perfect atk IV.) It now has 252 Atk, 252 spd, 4 hp.

Shining Cobra
Castelia Sewers

After spending the past few days in the Pokéstar Studios I finally beat Team Plasma in Virbank City and continued to Catelia City with Hugh.I decided to do the TP sidequest first and went to the sewers...with Hugh.Here it al started.After countles of battles with Rattata and Zubat I encountered a Grimer(I have a rule that I have to encounter each Pokémon that is accesible in the area), but most notable a SHINY RATTATA.I had out my Flaafy and Hugh his green snake of devil.I used Thunder Wave on S Rattata and Hugh used Wrap on it.Till this point it was all okay.But then I had to faint Grimer and guess three times what happened.Hugh's moon walking snake killed the S Rattata with it's Leaf Torando of Death.So Rattata is one of the few shinies I actually like the looks off and in the many battles with Rattata and Zubat, where he kept attacking Zubat, he now kills the S Rattata!I just wanted to punch him.There was also no way to faint his Servine, because Flaffy's ThunderShock wouldn't do it and if I was switched for Growlithe, I wouldn't be able to do it, cause that bastard snake is faster.
Well, there goes a shiny I actually wanted...
After that I completed the sewers and TP, but I'll never look at Hugh and mostly his green moon walking demon of a pokémon...

Ghetsis doesn't have Rayquaza.He has Hydreigon.And if you mean how to release Pokemon,its simple.Deposit the Pokemon you want to release in the PC.Then go to Move Pokemon.Select the Pokemon you want to release.There will be a 'Release' option.Press it and confirm the same and the Pokemon will be released.But you can't release a Pokemon if its the only Pokemon you have.

I come out of Reversal Mountain and encounter Hugh and defeated him. On the way to Laconusa Town, I caught an Absol and once I reached there, Zinzolin and the Team Plasma Grunt challenged me and Hugh to a battle where I came up victorious. Next I head to Village Bridge where the Man wanted his 1,000 win. I easily defeated him with my Samorott and Drifblim. Opelucid City came after that, where I headed to Route 9 to Audino grind my Pokemon to take on the gym. After level grinding, I head over to the gym where I took out the first trainer, the Defense lady and the Triple Battle man. I start my gym battle off nicely where my Gigalith pitted against his Druddigon. I first set up SandStorm to have Druddigon take a little damage every turn. After SandStorm my Gigalith stayed strong to 2KO Druddigon with Rock Slide while factoring SandStorm damage. I switch out Gigalith for Drifblim to take on Drayden's Flygon. Things didn't go so well as Shadow Ball wasn't enough against Flygon and was 2KO by Crunch. Samorott was sent out next and took two Earth Power's and striked back with two Aqua Tails, fainting Flygon. Drayden then sent out his Haxorus to fight against my Espeon. Haxorus took over 50% damage from Psychic but recovered from Sitrus Berry and set up Dragon Dance. Espeon used Psychic again bringing Haxorus to red HP, where he uses Dragon Dance again. Selecting Psychic again Haxorus had enough speed and fainted my Espeon with Assurance. Magmortar was up next and used Clear Smog, removing Haxorus's stat boosts where Dragon Tail missed. I use Clear Smog again and Haxorus landed a hit on my Magmortar but was burned due to Flame Body. My Krookodile was dragged out and I used Dig to avoid another attack to watch Haxorus take damage from its burn and Dig landed, fainting Haxorus thus I got the Legend Badge.

Edit: forgot he used the Hyper Potion after being on red HP.

Did some Join Avenue bits in Black 2. Also finished up the main campaign of Pokemon Dream Radar so now I can move Landorus over to it. It was ridiculously easy.


It's a mystery.
I've had this game since the release, but I've been progressing slowly compared to my friends, including my boyfriend, who were able to finish this game in 3-5 days. xD I wish I could've started posting sooner, but I was busy with college and I already got pretty far in this game on my own time. I suppose I can just start going through small updates.

Towers & Caves

So I defeated all the trainers on the way to Celestial tower, even a triple battle. For some reason Triple Battles have been challenging for me, I don't know why. Anyways, Celestial Tower was annoying because my Pokemon kept on fainting, and I don't like when they get cheated out of EXP, so I had to keep returning to the Pokemon Center and heal them up. I know there's a Nurse but you don't encounter her until you're pretty much done. I also received a Lucky Egg from Juniper, meaning I can now use two Pokemon in battle instead of one, as I'd only like to use the Pokemon that has the Lucky Egg equipped or else I feel like I'm getting less EXP than I should be.

So, after clearing the Celestial Tower, my entire party was higher leveled than 6 in my PC, so I had a major party shift, which now included Horsea and Braviary. That meant I can fly and Surf at the same time! So with that I decided to return to Driftveil so I could get the stuff in the water, and I encountered the Mistralton Cave. I would have never skipped such a thing after first obtaining it, but I only did because I completely forgot it was still open, I thought it was closed down due to Cobalion leaving. So I went in and defeated all the trainers, and even the cave journey was worth it because I got Rock Slide, a move a lot of my Pokemon with useless attacks could learn, so it was helpful.

I then went back to Mistralton and defeated all the trainers to the east of Celestial Tower, and now I am high enough leveled to take on the gym which I will be doing next time!
I'm almost at victory road, I've realised that my team is VERY underleveled:
Weezing lvl 48
Ampharos lvl 49
Zoroark lvl 50
Flygon lvl 49
Arcanine lvl 52
And last but not least Azumarill lvl 52

My brother is also underleveled, he is at Undella Town and his team is:
Magnezone lvl 39
Magmar lvl 33
Lucario lvl 32
Tranquil lvl 30
Sandslash lvl 32
Scorupi lvl 34


Finished the Big monster, timegate traveler and love and battles movies, so I decided to take a break and head to PWT and try out the Unova Leaders Tournament. For Singles, I decide to go with:

-Close Combat
-Aura Sphere
-Force Palm
-Dark Pulse

-Ice Beam

-Signal Beam
-Silver Wind
-Fire Blast

I don't know if luck had to do with it, but my matchups were against Clay, Marlon and Cilan, all of which I won.

Gas Snake X

Arbiter of Time
