I know it's very inactive at this time but I'm posting this anyways

I return with another progress journal.
Last time I made it all the way to Floaroma Town and beated Team Galatic in the Valley Windworks.
March 8,2011
Today I started off in the GTS in Jubilife City and made my way to Eterna City. I bought some Honey from that man in Floaroma Meadow, and went straight to Route 205. I battled the trainers there and some of my Pokemon were getting a bit weak. Luckily I found a lady in a house who heals Pokemon. I also caught a Bidoof to make my HM slave and named it respectively. I meet Cheryl in the Eterna Forest and she asked me to partner up and lead her out. I have to admit her Chansey isn't very strong. She says it's good at healing but she didn't even tell her to use Softboiled when she had very little HP left. I used mainly Abra and Luxio while in the forest. One thing I hate about traded Pokemon is when they refuse to obey cause they're at too low of a level so they're really hard to train. But I'm determined to train Abra cause I never used one on my party before. While I was leading Cheryl out of Eterna Forest , Abra evolved into Kadabra! Now all I need to do is trade it to my HeartGold and get Alakazam. I finally made it to the end of Eterna Forest and made it to Eterna City. Didn't battle any of the Fishermen on Route 205's other half till a bit later. Went around to explore the city before battling Gardenia and ran into Cynthia who gave me Cut. My attempt at beating Gardenia didn't go well at first. Even though I've played the games for years(this is my 2nd Diamond playthrough) , made alot of rookie mistakes such as going in with two fainted Pokemon, a lvl 9 Bidoof, a grass-starter and a flying-type with half-hp. So I tried surviving her Roserade as much as I as could, be she knocked me out with Grass Knot , Magical Leaf, and Poison Sting. I know stupid mistakes. I made another mistake by not healing in Eterna City! So I had to go all the way back from Floaroma Town. After healing up, I trained in Eterna Forest and Route 205 , caught a Murkorw and then I easily swept her team with my Staravia. While in Gardenia's gym, Turtwig evolved! After getting the Forest Badge, I taught Grotle Grass Knot and Bidoof Cut. After running around the town a bit,
I entered the Galactic Eterna Building. As usual Team Galatic was easy. The owner of the Cycle Shop gave me a bicycle as a reward for freeing him from Team Galactic. Also got an Explorer Kit from that one man so I explored the Underground a bit. I found some decent Spheres, 3 Heart Seals, Two Skull Fossils,Yellow Shard, a Splash Plate and a Hard Stone.

The team right now:
Twigleaf lv 19
Skyrim(nicknamed today) lv 22
Kazza lv20
Kimba lv.20
HM slave lv. 9

In PC
Quoth lv 11

I need help decide my last two Pokemon. I'm eventually gonna box Bidoof and use it just when I need HMs. I want a water type to permanently be set in my team so I can always have Surf when needed. I'll have to evolve Bidoof to teach it Waterfall, Strength, and Rock Climb. I was thinking either Floatzel or Gastrodon. Which one is a better choice?
I also need a flying type so to teach Fly to. So Staravia or Murkrow?
I really like Murkrow and never had a Honchkrow in any of my games so it be different than the generic bird Pokemon. Though Staravia evolves into Staraptor so in the end it's could be better.

Lastly, if you want to be named after a Pokemon let me know.


TL;DR Next time :I'll go through the Cycle Road, and go to Hearthrome City and maybe Solaceon Town if I'm up to it.

    Murkrow is not generic, and you like it better. As Karen of the Johto E4 said... It doesn't matter if the Pokemon are strong or weak, as long as you like them. Everyon ehas a Staravia, but Murky is awesome.

    Floatzel is less derpy than Gastrodon, and Gastry will be mutilated by grass types. Though, the blue variant might be nice to see?

    Ok Murkrow and Floatzel then. I'll box Staravia and that means I have an open slot. Any suggetions?
