Just had my gym battle with Gardenia & HOLY H- - -
it was tough! I nerfed myself by using only three pokémon and making sure the were all levels 17-18, which made it more difficult and enjoyable.
Cherubi was a pushover because it went down with one attack from my disobedient Chatot, but her Turtwig was a beast
. After several Work Ups it was able to take out Chatot AND my Monferno. My Rosalia eas eventually able to take it down with Giga Drain (so glad I got the TM through a trade), but then came the hard part, Roserade. I was able to do pretty good chip damage, but it kept tanking me with Petal Blizzards and Poison Stings that I had to use up all my potions. I even had to revive one of my pokémon just to heal Rosalia up. Eventually, Rosalia was able to beat Roserade and win the match.
All & all one of my favorite gym battles, even if I had to nerf myself. I don’t completely consider this a win because of how I had to use a revive at the end, but that just make me excited to battle Gardenia again in the post game!
