So tonight I went back to my Pokemon yellow run and finished it. Spent awhile finding ethers, then another two hours leveling Crackers up. Even so, it was a bitch to do it. XD; Honestly the hardest part of the entire elite 4 was my rival (Jason’s) fucking Sandlash and it’s damned earthquake attack. I reset- a lot, and I think I finally just got LUCKY when he missed twice in a damn row, allowing Crackers to nail him with mega punches. But..yah. The chicks were easy as hell though, 1HKO with Thunderbolt is always fun. XD Whee!
I love Pikachu, but damn, electric has some major ass flaws. XD
Okay, so, I’ve made it to the Elite 4 already (Game is so much quicker on 400%), using strictly Crackers the Pikachu. I had my HM slaves, but they never once entered battle. Not once. Anytime Crackers fainted, I reset. Which surprisingly, wasn’t that often. It was….. actually a LOT easier then I imaged to get to the Elite 4. Crackers is currently level 71. And while sweeping the Elite should be pretty damned easy, I’ve run into a hitch in my plans…
He doesn’t have enough PP to go around.
Yah, I figured it out, and unless I 1HKO EVERY SINGLE TIME, he’ll be outa moves before even reaching the Rival. Shit dude! So now I’m backtracking to see if I can find any of the ethers and max ethers in the game. I know I used one early on, but I think that’s it. Damn. SO CLOSE. I don’t think he’d survive using simply “struggle” ….though that is how I beat one of the leaders and the rival once. XD;
Didn’t spend much time actually catching Pokemon, in fact, I need to go back and catch like 2 more so I can get the damned item finder to help me find the blasted ether. Which makes things tricky since Crackers is so bloody strong he wastes anything in his path. XD;; I laughed so hard when he 1HKO every member of Rivals party right before Victory road.
Well, it was a fun run really. I’m still gonna try and beat the Elite 4, but I don’t know if it’s even possible without the ether… hm. If I do, I’ll post a screen cap showing Crackers did it alone. XD
Just for giggles I’m going to attempt a Pokemon Yellow Solo Pikachu run. I’m using a rom cause my GBASP is dead LOL.
1. Pikachu can be the ONLY fighter. No exceptions.
2. HM slaves are fine, but are ONLY to be used OUTSIDE of battle.
3. Resets are fine and can be used as many times as possible.
4. Pokemon can be caught, but not really required. I’m not going for the pokedex, just to make it to the Elite 4.
5. Cause it’s a rom, I’m cheating a little and setting it to 400% speed. Cause I can. :P
My game, my rules. XD Let’s see how far I get before I get bored, or to the point I can’t win. WHEE!
