I was played a second file on Violet, doing a challenge run where I only used Cynthia's Pokemon(I used the Braviary and Elektross she uses in Gen 5 to replace the MIA Roserade and Milotic, and those Pokemon are strong, I never realized how bulky Elektross was and how powerful Braviary was until I did this) and I actually managed to clear all three storylines with the team of Garchomp, Lucario, Gastrodon, Elektross, Braviary and Spiritomb. I lost to Tulip because I forgot Spiritomb is weak to two of her team and Lucario died before he could use any Steel moves on them, had to grind ten levels and try again, but that was the only hiccup, I used Chanseys to get everyone to Level 83 and just wrecked house.
On Scarlet, I managed to get all of the Titans and am at the final battle in Path of Legends. I still have three gyms to go(Afornada, Montrevere and Glasaedo) and two Star Bases(the tough ones - Fairy and Fighting crew)...
And I released and caught Chi-Yu, which required three Timer Balls and I nearly wiped to it because the only team I had at the time was a Level 80 Breloom and two Level 53 Pokemon(Zweilous and Larvesta) I was raising to evolve them, and if you know these two guys, you know how long it takes to evolve them. So yeah, my Pokemon I used for weakening for capture was a Level 80 Breloom, which is weak to the two attacks Chi-Yu comes with - Bounce and Lava Plume. It died to burn after getting hit with Lava Plume so I had to sac the other two mons to revive Breloom and spam Spore in hopes that it would stay asleep. That flaming goldfish took me back to Ruby and Sapphire when I was trying to catch the dang Regis. The only reason I bothered was for the Pokedex and a video told me Chi-Yu was needed to spam the Ace Academy Tournament to farm money.
I can't even use it because, as I said, I still have three gyms to clear, and Breloom fails on all of them. I need to get back to raising my team to sweep Grusha's ice whale, Tulip's dumb ostrich(another reason I got wiped by Tulip with my Cynthia Junior challenge was because I used an X-Speed and X-Special Attack and didn't know about Espartha's $*!*$!@* Opportunist ability that copies the buffs, so it swept my entire team with Lumina Crash at 2x Sp.Atk and outsped at 2x speed), and Rime's double battles.
And yeah, I play other games and waste my time watching Youtube so I'm never gonna unlock the Charizard raids. I could on my Cynthia Junior challenge, but I had the game on mute the whole time and I felt cheated so I'm gonna try to finish Scarlet first.
