Part 2: http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/blogs/36988/crystal-nuzlocke-pt-2-45477/
After healing up, I head outside and walk toward the Ilex Forest. Silver catches up to me and "interrogates" me about Team Rocket. LOL. He challenges me to a "battle", and actually puts up a decent fight this time with his Croconaw, but it's nothing my boys can't handle. Zubat and Gastly both fall to Dudette's Rock Slide in a single hit, as it should be. Silver tells me that, "Truth be told, you're not very good." And then he runs away crying. I return to the Pokémon Center and heal up again, for the trek to come could be long and arduous, but probably not...
I put Dudette in the lead, because, well, frankly, she's my only chance against Whitney. Inside, I encounter and capture a Metapod. JUST what I needed. :| Named him Metaknight.
And now some moron has lost his Farfetch'd. That story is just a little bit... out there. Oh, look, a Revive. :| Anyways, I quickly formulate a strategy that's based partly on trial and error, and send that little bugger off to his master. His real master, too, not the apprentice who can't seem to keep a hold on his own Pokémon. Jeeze, kid, you shouldn't be trying to handle animals if you can't do it. Anyways, the Cut Master is so happy thanks to my help, he gives me HM01 - Cut, which I will make prompt use of shortly. I teach it to Lugosi, who forgets Wrap.
Soon after, I find some weirdo just hanging around running headfirst into trees. He gives me the TM for Headbutt. Not sure if I should use it just yet, so I save it. Before long, I also run into some Bug Catcher-type. Apparently, I startled him, and he challenges me to a battle. Or so he thinks. It's more like a massacre. Dudette OHKOs both of his Pokémon, and the experience bar stops just short of a level-up. Apparently, this guy hasn't seen a Geodude before. Where's he been living? Not under a rock?
I defeat my next wild Pokémon, and Dudette gets the level-up. Exiting the forest, a nice lady gives me the TM for Sweet Scent. Not particularly useful, but a kind gesture. Outside, I'm challenged by a kid who uses two rodents and two Spearow. And of course the first wild Pokémon I find on this route is an Abra, which promptly Teleports away. Le sigh.
I'm challenged again, by a guy with a Mankey and a Diglett. I use Sperry for this battle, and he levels up to level 15. Woo. I go on to battle a girl who, unfortunately for her, uses grass-types. Baller mops up the court, and hits level 17. Next, I battle a fat guy in a weird outfit... He uses a single Snubbull, no problem at all. I run around in the grass for a bit, and find a wild Snubbull (sigh). With this, Baller hits level 18. Next up is a Camper using a Psyduck, which is no challenge at all for Lugosi. Lugosi hits level 15 after running around in the grass for a bit.
I find a house, break in, and am surprised to find an old couple who are perfectly welcoming. One of them offers me an egg, which I gladly accept. Van goes in the PC, at least for now.
I reach Goldenrod City, and heal up at the Pokémon Center. In the city, I find a guy who gives me a free bike in exchange for ad space. I begin to ride this bike for a long, long time. Like, seriously. The bike shop owner calls me to tell me I can keep the bike long before the egg hatches. My legs have been tempered into Skyforged steel by the time the egg hatches, into... Magby. :| Couldn't have been a nice electric-type that Crystal is so lacking in, huh? Well, Van, you're in luck.
And, that's a wrap for tonight.
