Missingno. Master 10-02-2017 09:22 PM

Alright, so, I booted Team Rocket out of the Radio Tower (Bayleef evolved in the process), beat Clair, got her useless Dragon Fang (literally useless- in Gen II, the Dragon Fang does nothing whatsoever, its intended effect going to the Dragon Scale instead, little FYI for anyone considering it as a held item for their Dragon-type), then went out and caught all the legendary gerbils. After multiple failures, I went, "fuck it", went and cloned the Master Ball, and just chucked three of them at the beasts. And now, caught me a female Dratini, and she and a certain Red Gyarados are due for a little alone time in the Daycare. I'm gonna get my first Gen II Shiny hunt underway. :)

Believe it or not, it has been pulling its weight. Obviously far from the strongest on the team, but it actually took out a good chunk of Koga and Bruno's teams by itself. Also helped out way back against Falkner- only needed it and Chikorita there- against Whitney's Clefairy, and Morty's Gastly, and it really pulled its weight in Mahogany Gym. Granted, all it did against Lance was land a single Hidden Power against Charizard, but overall, I can't say I regret adding Unown to the team. Made for a nice challenge while not being complete dead weight.

And now, here's how the battle against Lance went;

Stantler vs. Gyarados: Stantler outspeeds! Headbutt, Gyarados flinched. Tried a Hypnosis, failed, Gyarados set up Rain Dance. Next Hypnosis succeeded. Followed up with Nightmare. Landed another Headbutt. Gyarados sleeps through it, faints to the Nightmare.

Qwilfish vs. Dragonite: Aaand bringing on the Dragonite already. Only made sense to respond with the quad weakness, so I switched Stantler out for Qwilfish. This time... we did not outspeed. Dragonite OHKO'd with Thunder.

Stantler vs. Dragonite: So yeah, went back out to Stantler. The rain stopped at this point. We outspeed once more, land a Hypnosis on the first try. Follow it up with a Nightmare, and then just start spamming Headbutt. Dragonite falls to this. Stantler even grows to level 39 as a result!

Stantler vs. Dragonite: Yeah, he went for another Dragonite. Figured I'd try the same thing what worked on the first one, and sure enough, landed the first Hypnosis with no problem. Followed up with Nightmare, and started spamming Headbutt, with the same results as last time.

Sudowoodo vs. Aerodactyl: Yeah, I wasn't fool enough to think I outsped that thing. Switched to Sudowoodo, figured I'd take advantage of Sudowoodo's nice Defense. Went for Rock Slide, as did he- difference is, his Rock Slide actually hit. -__- So yeah, tried that again, with better results, actually did some amazing damage. Sudowoodo was low on health by now, so I used a Hyper Potion, and we ate another Rock Slide. And then another one as we went for Rock Slide, and Sudowoodo flinched. Because of course he did. Another Hyper Potion, took another Rock Slide, went for Rock Slide ourselves, took another Rock Slide first, and actually attacked with Rock Slide, and knocked Aerodactyl out! Sudowoodo even leveled up from that!

Unown vs. Charizard: Ordinarily I'd have left Sudowoodo in on this, but it's getting low on HP. And I wanted to give Unown a shot in this battle.It's actually gotten a thing or two done against the Elite Four, and I wanted to afford it the chance to contribute to this victory as well. And the Quick Claw kicked in straightaway, we landed a decent Hidden Power, and got OHKO'd by Flamethrower immediately after.

Togetic vs. Charizard: Used this opportunity to Hyper Potion Sudowoodo. Took a Flamethrower for our troubles, and even got burned. Even Togetic's high Sp. Def didn't save it from taking over half its health- suddenly Unown losing to this doesn't make it seem as pathetic. Got KO'd by Flamethrower the very next turn.

Sudowoodo vs. Charizard: Now Sudowoodo, here's a Pokémon who takes those Flamethrowers like a champ! Didn't even lose half its health, and finished off Charizard with Rock Slide!

Meganium vs. Dragonite: Made a switch just to throw up a Reflect against Lance's strongest, and was immediately force-fed a Fire Blast, which Meganium survived with 4 HP! She got burned, but thanks to how things worked back then, she didn't get immediately KO'd by burn damage, giving me a perfect chance to heal her up with a Full Restore. My aim was to paralyze with Body Slam. And then came the Outrage. Meganium took that much better, but the Body Slam didn't paralyze, and she fainted to Outrage.

Stantler vs. Dragonite: For the first time in this battle, I brought out Stantler against something he didn't outspeed. But Outrage didn't KO, which is nice. Less nice, however, is the fact that Hypnosis missed. Promptly went for the Hyper Potion, after which Dragonite hurt itself in its confusion. Went for Hypnosis again, after Dragonite hurt itself again, and this one hit! And then I went for Nightmare so of course Lance whips out the Full Freaking Restore. -__- Go for Hypnosis again, and certain death via Hyper Beam- STANTLER HELD ON WITH TWO HIT POINTS! Moreover, Dragonite couldn't possibly wake up the next turn, as it had to recharge, so guaranteed Nightmare! Used another Hyper Potion, Lance healed Dragonite with a Full Heal, but it... took Nightmare damage anyway?! What?! Uh... OK, Dragonite used Hyper Beam, this time OHKOing.

Sudowoodo vs. Dragonite: Dragonite recharged, taking Nightmare damage again despite being awake, Sudowoodo went for Rock Slide... missed. Not at full health, so I went for a Hyper Potion, and Dragonite went for Outrage, doing immense damage. But not enough to KO, so I went for another Hyper Potion. Sudowoodo hung on with 5 HP this time. Used yet another Hyper Potion- and Dragonite's taking Nightmare damage the whole time, here!- and Dragonite uses Outrage... And doesn't KO Sudowoodo! And faints from Nightmare damage! Sudowoodo grew to level 40 And I win! I WIN!! I WIN!!!!!

Got both because of course I did.

On Silver, I'm abusing glitches. Mostly the PC glitch. And so I did the starter trick (on the first bit, I went far enough to get the Egg and hatch it). And, without any SR or trickery other than the PC glitch itself, I ended up with a shiny Mareep, a Togepi, all three starters. Oh, and all of them were female. I have Starter and Mareep clones already queued up for transfer when G/S-Bank compatibility opens in a month. And while I've played with the cloning, I have not cloned a single Rare Candy because that just ruins the fun. While I have all 3 Starters, not using any of them in my team. Beat Whitney with Skiploom and Togepi, which was fun. Paraflinchfusion on Miltank for days, with -6 ACC and ATK. Have gone through most of Johto thus far, currently about to start to kick TR out of the Radio Tower (spoilers!).

Skarmory (M) Lv 30

Scyther (M) Lv 35 @ King's Rock
Headbutt/False Swipe/Rock Smash/Wing Attack

Ledian (F) Lv 36 @ Nevermeltice
Ice Punch/Thunderpunch/Safeguard/Baton Pass

Ampharos (F) shiny Lv 36 @ Magnet
Thunderpunch/Fire Punch/Thunder Wave

I also have a Hoothoot and Red Gyara as HM slaves

On Gold, I am not using any of the glitches, just straight playing it. I'm also doing my best to stay to a consistent team, one of only Gen II Pokemon (though I have had to rely on some non-Gen II for things like BCC and HMs). Highlights include using Togepi + Spinarak to kill Whitney's Miltank of Death. Progress is up to beating Morty.

Segundo: Ariados (M) Lv 27
Poison Sting/Night Shade/Scary Face/Leech Life (Ariados has a terrible learnset! by level)

Gloves: Aipom (M) Lv 27
Strength/Rock Smash/Baton Pass/Swift

Uriel: Togetic (M) Lv 29
Headbutt/Charm/Mud-Slap/Sweet Kiss

Fang: Feraligatr (M) Lv 30

So, two plays in very different directions, fun in their own ways.

Something I always love about going back to the original games is seeing what Pokemon I'd use now that I wouldn't use as a kid. Being able to move those mons over to the bank is always a plus!
