Well. Picked up the game today. Blazed my way through a couple of random trainer battles, and my fight with Shauna. (Starter with a STAB move off the bat is fun.)
Nothing terribly difficult. Ended up catching a Pidgey and a Bidoof, in addition to the Fennekin I started with. Pidgey is filler for now. Bidoof is scheduled to be an HM Slave Bibarel. .-. And Fennekin, well... not much explaining I need to do there.
Fennekin is named Yakumo. (M)
Pidgey is named Harpy. (F)
Bidoof is named Pathfinder. (F)
Then up came my fight with Viola. Had to a bit of grinding due to the level jump, but she wasn't that difficult. Surskit VS Bidoof was one-sided, until Surskit landed a Critical Hit Bubble. =_= Bidoof won though. GO TEAM BIDOOF. Next up was Fennekin VS Vivillion. This one was closer, due to Surskit using Water Sport. (Something I forgot.) So yeah, I used Ember expecting a huge hit. I was pretty surprised when Vivillion took such a small amount of damage. @.@ From there, it was back and forth. Neither side did a ton of damage really, but Vivillion was wearing Fennekin down with Infestation.
Then Water Sport wore off, and I used Ember to finish Vivillion off. Bug Badge get!
Then I'm treated this gem.
Viola: "You and your Bidoof have shown me a whole new depth of field! Fantastic! Just fantastic!"
I... what. I don't know why, but I find this hilarious.
So yeah. Despite Fennekin's hard work, Bidoof is the team badass apparently. >w>
