Wiped the electric gym off the map with muh Trapinch, and it is now evolved into a vibrava, which is one of the best Dragon types in the first 5 generations. Not the tankiest, but it’s fast and has a huge movepool for excellent type coverage. So excited to get a Flygon. I 100% plan on this being a Mon I take through the Elite 4 and champion.
Also now have a magnezone, which is glorious. I will always welcome a special sweeper, especially when they’re also a fantastic tank.
It’s going well, but the next gym is ground type, and that is gonna be a struggle. Because 2 of my 3 real good mons are real weak to ground type (magnezone having 4x weakness), and won’t see any use in that there gym.
Luckily I caught a sacrificial Ducklett, which is water/flying. Arguably the best possibly type for that gym since water is super effective against ground, and ground type moves can’t hit flying types. Only worries are the fact that half of the Pokemon there will know rock slide/throw, and Smackdown, which are very scary for little Bill the ducklett.
If only I had a quagsire. The fight would be a breeze, then.
(Yes, I know there was a dark tone in the thread. That’s precisely why I posted something so long. Don’t need so much doom and gloom here, IMO.)
