The number thirteen: unlucky for some, me especially.

So here it is, my 13th blog post. Goodness knows what would've happened had I tried making this yesterday. What better way to celebrate this milestone by discussing the shitty luck I had at the tail end of my Zigzagoon Solo Run of Pokemon Emerald.
I managed to defeat Steven's level 70+ team with just a level 76 Zigzagoon, but not before encountering severe frustration. I had devised the perfect strategy to take down his team, but over and over again, just when I thought I was on the winning road, he would get a critical hit to break through Zigzagoon's boosted Defence and KO her even at full health. It drove me insane; I was THIS close to cheating and changing Ziggy's ability to Battle Armour.
You have no idea how much I wish critical hits would get taken out of this series, they rarely bring me any joy. I hate the fear of getting one when I'm weakening a Pokemon for capture, and it's incredibly frustrating to lose a competitive battle just because your opponent got a lucky break. I don't even like it when they help me win; I want to prove I can triumph without unpredictable luck on my side, and such an occurrence has caused many of my rivals on Random Match-up to disconnect.
