Part One~Part Two
on Star Trek: The Next Generationin Black 2:
When we last left Silvy, she was in a desert and had sand in her.....shoes but had managed to capture two of N's Pokémon. It's dark, Silvy is hungry, tired and more than a little frustrated and really wants to get that annoying sand out her....hair.
October 12, 2012 (Day Six):
Since I've gotten two of N's Pokémon, I decide I may as well rest up a bit before heading back out. After a night's worth of sleep, I grab my team and go back into the desert. I wander around and run into another sparkling Pokémon--this one happens to be N's old Scraggy. Gritting my teeth, I dig in and try to take it down.
After blowing a grand total of four Balls--three Great and a Premier--I finally get the stupid thing to stay in a lowly Poké Ball. Whew, three down and only two to go. But instead of healing up with the nearby nurse and scrounging through the desert again, I head back to Castelia, as I have a change in plans. Heading back means battling Irene again, which I do rather begrudgingly and after handing her yet another loss, I dash into the city.
I heal up, box the brand new/old Scraggy and grab an old familiar friend: my level 100 Golurk, Riser. Now, I already know that he can't battle for me: I only have three Badges so the big guy won't listen. But he isn't with me to battle. He's there to stall for time. The last two Pokémon that I'm hunting are N's Sandile and his Darmanitan and both of them put a massive hurting on my team when I first faced them. Riser's strong enough to simply wait out the hits and while he does, I figure I can lob a few Balls at my targets. It has to be as good a plan as any. So with a sigh, I grab my guys and head off to the desert yet again.
Another battle with Irene later, I'm up to my skirt in sand and looking for N's Pokémon. The first one that comes at me this round is the Sandile. With baited breath, I switch from my lead (Dogū) and send out Riser. The big fella does what he needs to do and takes a couple of hits while I pitch a Poké Ball at my intended target. Imagine my shock when the blasted Sandile is immediately caught. With a stunned shake of the head, I save and keep looking. That Darmanitan is around here somewhere, I think, and I ain't leaving without it.
It only takes fourteen minutes before the fire ape shows up. This time, I'm ready for him.
I recall Dogū and send out Riser, expecting a difficult battle. It doesn't go down that way; Riser just stands and watches as I throw a Poké Ball at the Darmanitan and the Balls snaps shut. Now, I'm officially dumbfounded. The last time I faced the Darmanitan, it put up such a fight that I couldn't capture it. Today I've just taken down two of N's Pokémon without any trouble. I head back to Castelia, box up my team to keep their Pokérus status stable, thank Riser for his hard work and call it a night.
October 13, 2012 (Day Seven):
I finally arrive at the Nimbasa City Gym but I'm turned away. Elesa is at her old Gym and maybe I can find her there. With a groan--as I know I'm being totally trolled here--I head to the old Gym and curbstomp everyone inside. And what do you think happens when I reach the end of the Roller Coaster line? Oh, I juuuuuuuust missed Elesa. She's back at her current Gym!
Well, at least I got a Parlyz Heal for my trouble, not to mention even more cash. I set my jaw, sigh and walk into Elesa's Gym.
When I played Black, Elesa's Gym was a nightmare for me. I had no good Ground type, as the Drilbur I had couldn't stand on its own two feet and everyone else was getting slapped around by Volt Switch. My play-through on White was a completely different affair altogether--I had a Golett in my party who pretty much whipped anything that came at him. This time I vow that I will not be caught unprepared; Elesa was the reason I had to have a slightly over-leveled Golett with me. I've put a lot of training into my little Dogū. This is his battle and I know he won't disappoint me.
I run through Elesa's flunkies like they're nothing. Dogū doesn't break a sweat and doesn't get a scratch. Once we've massacred them, it's time to face the Supermodel.
Elesa starts with her Emolga, which I expected. Dogū leads off and smacks the little flying rat with a quick Rock Slide, but not before the squirrel hits him with a Pursuit. One down. Elesa's second Pokémon is her Zebstrika. This one falls to a Bulldoze but takes Dogū into the yellow with another Pursuit. Lastly comes Flaaffy and I decide it's high time to heal up. I give Dogū a Fresh Water and laugh as Flaaffy tries to strike with a ThunderShock. Um, did you forget that you were facing a Ground type, you dumb sheep?
After laughing at Elesa's mistake, I take out Flaaffy with another Bulldoze. A one, two, three inning for me. I'm floored and yet, I'm not. I fully expected Dogū to take out Elesa with little trouble and I was right. So now I have my fourth Badge! Go me!
After the battle, I head to the Stadiums and see Team Plasma, along with Rage Boy. Oh great, what did you do this time, Rage Boy? Am I going to have to bail you out? With a sigh, I agree to help him take down the Plasma punks. This is where Dogū's Ability could be called troublesome: I was up against a Watchog who confused my poor Golett. Then it kept spamming Hypnosis. But no matter, for an ice cream cone can cure that--I had stocked up on Casteliacones when I had the chance. But even confused, Dogū still managed to take out the Watchog. Man, I do love my little Dream Worlder!
Once the Plasma grunts are gone, Rage Boy explains why he has anger management problems: his little sister's Purrloin was stolen by Team Plasma five years ago. He also tells me he's expecting me to get stronger and have his back. Of course I will, Rage Boy. Who else is going to drag your sorry tail out of trouble? With that said, I head over to Route 5 and I'm stopped by Bianca. She gives me Fly and shows me one of the Hidden Grottos. I catch the Minccino inside and try taking on a few of the Trainers along the Route. After a Ranger nearly throttles me, I add N's Darmanitan to my team as a back-up. And what do you know? It works! Afterwards, I head back to Nimbasa and call it a night.
October 14, 15 & 16, 2012 (Days Eight, Nine and Ten):
These are "resting" days; I don't actually train all that much. Instead, I focus on my Pokédex. I round robin a few 'Mons from my Black and my White cart, scour GTS looking for anything that can give me 'Dex info and trade if I can. I also use the time to try and bulk up my Join Avenue; thanks to my various and sundry Magnemite trades my Avenue goes from level 1 to 3 in under five minutes. But once I've hit around 200 or so in the 'Dex it'll be time to start training again as Clay awaits my arrival. I only hope my little Dogū is ready for that battle.
