A New Year, A New Game

Posted by Alex on March 4, 2016 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (0)

So, I've downloaded Red Version from the Nintendo eShop, and I have been LOVING getting back to my grass roots (with fire... I chose Charmander). At the time of my posting this, I'm on the Bike Path on my way to Fuschia City. My current team including:
Charmeleon
Gyarados
Machoke
Nidoking
Golem
Alakazam
My girlfriend has been playing along with me with her downloaded Yellow Version. Feels so good to do this. I've even some plans for these pokemon and a couple others for later.

In Alpha Sapphire, I am within 10 pokemon from completing the National Pokedex. A light hiatus as I play Red, but still going back to AS to continue with that. I'll try to update when I have that completed.

Bulba Breeding

So since I have a Shiny Charizard and a Shiny Blastoise (both of which I have obtained from others in one fashion or another), I have decided to round out the trio and breed for myself a Shiny Venusaur. So far I have the IVs close to where I want, the Nature exactly what I want. The Ability is tricky, but I have a chance at it. Now all comes down to the parents.

Additionally, I have transferred to my Alpha Sapphire a crapload of my other Pokémon to help fill up my Living Dex, in the hopes of getting the Shiny Charm soon. I've left a few strong Pokémon behind in my X Version to help with seeking things out there, so we'll see how things go. If I can get the complete Pokédex in my Alpha Sapphire, I can transfer and transfer back certain ones to help get the Shiny Charm in X Version as well, thus helping both games get better chances at those elusive Shinies.

Huntail Complete!

So a while back I decided that if I am to complete the pokedexes, I might as well train up each pokemon that evolves into a competitive force. So while I was going through my pokemon, I realized that I hadn't had ANY of Clamperl's family. So I looked through the strategies on Smogon and found a few that could work. With the aid of my girlfriend, I managed to evolve my Clamperl I've been training into a useful utility pokemon. Here it is as it stands:

Pokémon: Huntail
Type(s): Water
Ability: Swift Swim
Nature: Timid
Item: White Herb
Move 1: Shell Smash
Move 2: Baton Pass
Move 3: Scald
Move 4: Substitute
EVs: HP 252, SpA 4, Spe 252

 

Not bad, and I'm sure I can make some good use of it.
