Part 34: Victory Road and More Black/White Thoughts

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.

My starter is going to be Oshawott. I don't know if I'm going to evolve it to the third form or not. I like the way it looks, but the second form is interesting.

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.

Deino comes in late in the game I'm told. I really want to use it, but I'm not sure I'll want to give up a member of my team to use it. If it did come down to it, perhaps Carracosta or Deerling could go, but I'm usually the type to stick to a team. You find it on FREAKIN VICTORY ROAD, so I'm not sure. I'll be getting one for post-game most likely though. The third form is just creepy to me though, so I'll keep it at it's second evolution, Zweilous.

I still like Zekrom more then Reshiram, but, Josh is getting White, so...bleh. Ah well.


  1. Just to let you know, Deino is definitely not a good choice before the beating the game because even if you get it to evolve to zweilous, at that point in the game, it won't be able to help out too much considering it's average stats and likely not very good EVs, it's probably better to stick with any other previous team member. I tried one myself(I'm Japanese), but in the end I realized it just wasn't worth at all to revive it and just see it faint again as soon as it came out. You can still try though.

  2. If you would like I have a level one Deino that I could trade to you.
