And thus, we've made it to Victory Road and the Pokemon League. The Victory Road was long and winding, but not too terrible.
And I see my first view of the Pokemon League building. It's been a long journey, but I finally made it.
I healed up my Pokemon, and went to talk to the person guarding the Elite Four. At least they are actually GUARDING the door this time. When I played ShinyGold with Josh, it was the first time I had actually been to the Elite Four building, and I saw a rather large conspicuous door, and I happily wandered into it without healing or anything, thinking that perhaps it's another part of the building.
It was the Elite Four and I was all like....nuuuuuu.
So, I somewhat appreciate the addition of a guard.
"Hold it! Don't go off without me!" I heard the familiar spastic cries of Tim behind me.
"You're challenging the Pokemon League, aren't you? That's why I'm here, too. Let's see who's more worthy of making the challenge with a battle!"
A bit of a close call with some of his Pokemon, but we won out in the end.
Tim sighed. "I guess I'm not ready for the Pokemon League if I'm losing to you! Darn it! You watch, though! I'll get tougher and win my way through the Pokemon League! Because I'm going to become the Champion, the toughest Trainer! Donny! You better not lose to anyone before me!" He grinned and ran off, probably to train his Pokemon up a bit more.
Anyway, the next post will probably be the Elite Four themselves, details about what Pokemon and such they use. I'm going to level up probably to 60 before entering into the final battles.
I'm going to do a very late pre-order on Black tomorrow at Gamestop. The Black/White games come out on Sunday, so I hope to at least be done with the Elite Four on this game before that one. I probably won't get started on Black for a while, but knowing me, I can't resist a new game.
I'm hoping Purrloin/Liepard will be okay, because I like the way they look (purple is one of my favorite colours), but it might not fit right with me once I try them out.
I might give Tirtouga/Carracosta a try, they're interesting-looking. The first form is cuter than the second, but the second isn't dumb-looking.
Deerling/Sawsbuck is probably a for sure, since it's so cute.
And since everyone picks on Klink, I want to have it on my team. It needs more love. And I think it's cool.
Litwick/Lampent/Chandelure is just awesome.
I still like Zekrom more then Reshiram, but, Josh is getting White, so...bleh. Ah well.
