Note: All the Pokemon I use are homegrown, without a bit of gamesharkery in them. Why? Because I don't own a gameshark.
My brother had agreed to waste his entire Saturday driving me and my friend (whom you might have seen on here as Joltrio W) to Six Flags Great Adventure. It was a long car ride, where I sat there, desperately trying to level up my Blissey, as my brother yelled at the traffic. I listened to a few of the anime songs on my mp3 player, and by the time I got there, my Blissey had leveled up 26 levels. Not only that, but because I had Amulet Coin attached at the time, my cash flow was currently maxed out on my Silver version. Fun.
So me and my friend stood in a very small line, and then met the metal detectors. Having so much stuff on me (mp3 player, gameboy, cell phone, game links, etc. etc.), it took a good while before I could move on.
We went looking for the Fun Fest location, but didn't know where it was because there were no signs showing its location. We went in the wrong direction, and then eventually there was a Six Flags employee who knew where it was. So off we went into the wild blue yonder.
When we got there, the tent was...quite empty. I got my Celebi, whose stats were 15/16/16/16/16. Not bad, I thought to myself. (It turns out that none of the stats will be max. At level 30 right now without any stat exp, it is 69/72/72/72. bah)
I played my friend in Challenge Cup, after my Nidoqueen had fun Countering Miltank's attacks, and then we sat down to talk to people. We met two people there. One was Sanochu, and the other was some large guy whose name I forgot. I asked the large guy to a battle and he agreed.
I lead with Forretress, he lead with Houou.
I asked him, "Do you have Mewtwo, Houou, AND Lugia on your team?"
He replied, "Only Mewtwo and Houou."
The words "uh oh" sprang to my mind.
Anyway, anticipating Houou leads in general, I packed a Kingdra on my team, and decided that switching to Kingdra would be the best idea. Knowing that Kingdra's base speed is lower than Houou's, I decide to Agility, but...Kingdra went first?! I was rather surprised, seeing as my Kingdra had a low speed DV and all. Kingdra took some kind of attack, Rest Berry'd another attack off, and then proceeded to pound Houou with Surf, until he switched to Suicune.
Not knowing if he packed Mirror Coat, I decided to test the waters a bit by using Dragonbreath. He had picked the wrong move, and used Rain Dance instead. I switched to Blissey as he Mirror Coated, and then tried to TWave Suicune. He switched to Snorlax and let Lax eat up the TWave.
Not having had a fun time with most Snorlax on gsbot, I switched to Forretress to take it out in one Pink Bow Explosion, and praying that the thing didn't have Curse.
It Belly Drummed.
So Forretress was pretty happy as it became a shrapnel-launching entity, and slew the half-HP lax.
In came my Umbreon, vs his Houou yet again. To keep a long battle short, Umbreon Toxic Looked, held its own, and Houou eventually fell to the Poison. It took a VERY long while too because he kept Recovering.
Steelix came in to screw with Umbreon, who was switched out to Kingdra to take an Earthquake. Suicune switched in to take a Surf, whose Mirror Coat was yet again thwarted by Blissey. Blissey Seismic Tossed the incoming Steelix and then-
there was another contest. Damn, that sucked. He gave me the win, saying I was a good battler, and that he wasn't too familiar with advanced strategies, not being terribly familiar with GS yet. So all he did was all-out attack.
At the contest, I won some Onix dog tags by answering who could learn False Swipe. I managed to trade them with that large guy for some Koffing dog tags.
A good business deal if I say so myself.
While chatting with Sanochu about some of the funnier nicknames on gsbot, such as Mr.E's absurdly long nicknames, and Fish's rather...creative...Pokemon names, I overheard something from the contest booth.
"What is Tyranitar's max HP?"
I flipped, thinking what the hell a question like that was doing in this n00b infested environment. Only the most insane players would know that stat!
Then some kid said "120" or something like that, and it was right.
I realized they were talking about the TCG. Eheheh. Zaniness.
I got into a battle with some other kid. He led with Mew, I lead with Forry yet again. Forry laid down some Spikes as Mew used Strength or something. Forry was ready to take out the Mew in one nasty burst of Forry chunks, but...
MEW used FLY!
Damn. The kid laughed. In came Umbreon, whose Toxic Look sent Mew packing, while Mew desperately tried to hurt Umbreon with Fly and Cuts.
A level 80 Typhlosion was also victim to Toxic Look (not that I needed the 'Look' part. Kids don't seem to comprehend switching out). FLame Wheels, Slashes, Umbreon would have none of that. It stood there, taking those shots as if they were crippled flies landing on him, and when Toxic was just about to finish him off...
Damn it, this was my last battle of the day, and neither of them actually ended.
We stood around a little more, talked, had pictures taken, and talked some more about Pokemon strategy and such.
Me and Joltrio went to some restaurant, ate some expensive-ass food, and then bought some nice frozen cola drinks. I got coke, he got strawberry. I called my brother, who then came 'round to pick us up.
That was about it. Not very exciting at all, seeing as I didn't finish any battles.
Oh well, next time, I guess. Still, it was quite fun.
And Sanochu cloned me one of ET's 15/13/15/15 Dittos.
Silly ET, with his ID# of 12345.
Where was the ID 31337, huh? HUH?!
