Pokemon White Update (2)

Well now, it has been a really long time since I last posted, and it has actually been just as long since I last played Pokemon. But since I did play it a little bit, I might as well write an update. So, here goes.

When last i posted, i was getting read to challenge the lightning gym leader, so naturally i assembled a group of ground pokemon. As of yet, i only had the one Ground pokemon: Sandile, but i did have another pokemon (Tympole) which evolves into Palpitoad, which, although is still a water type, the ground type cancels the electricity out. So, I picked those two up at my local pokemon center after dropping off Tranquill and Blitzle, but i figured i still needed one more, so i headed back to Wellspring to pick up my last ground type, and lvl up a bit at the same time.

This guy is Drilbur. He looks awesome, and because he only appears in dust clouds, i figured he must be a pretty good pokemon. Unfortunately, unlike with rustling grass, where you can farm for them by running nearby some grass, you can’t do that in the cave, because everywhere is an encounter area. It took stoopid me a while to figure out that i needed to use repel to better my chances of coming across some dust. So after some Repel (about4 or 5 uses) i finally got in a battle with a dribur in a dust cloud, and after a relatively easy battle, caught him with an ultra-ball. With my gopher in tow holding an Exp Share and dropping off my Tirtouga, i headed to Desert Resort to lvl, and capture another pokemon i missed on my first time through.

This pokemon with just really reminds me of Unown, is actually not at all related and is called Siglyph. It is rare in the Desert Resort, and the only one i came across before i accidentally killed (made faint). It also wasn’t all that important because i already had a psychic and a flying pokemon, so no need of another, specially one as goofy looking as that. However, with the catch-em-all attitude, and the need to lvl anyway, i went in search of this rare psychic guardian. This one was a bit more obnoxious because it didn’t show up in any special area i could farm for, i had to run around until i came across one, and i had gotten rid of all my pokemon that was strong against ground/dark and bug/rock, making it harder to lvl. but after enough persistence if finally managed to get one of these weirdos into a Great Ball. Despite all that work, i wasn’t actually going to us this pokemon, so i simply stored it and headed away from the desert and onto Route 3 to level some more

While i was lvling i came across some all new pokemon and i had to catchem. First was, honestly, the first poison pokemon that i considered acrually using, lil’ Trubbish here. With the way he looks and his Pokedex red-out of “The combination of garbage bags and industrial waste caused the chemical reaction that crated this Pokémon” just makes you go “d’awww, you just the cutest result of polution i have ever seeeeen”. I’ve always avoided poison because they easily fall to my favorite pokemon type (psychic) but i am actually considering adding this guy to the team after I finish with the ‘lectric gym.

Speaking of those awesome brainy pokemon, I came across the second pokemon that is only in White verson: Solosis. It’s counterpart in the Black version is the mobid looking Gothita. Seeing her morbid appearance and annoyed at the lost opportunity of a Dark/Psychic pokemon, i really prefer my bubble buddy here. Not enough to actually put him in my party because Victini is so epic, but i preffer to have him mingle in my pokemon box over on of the more emo looking pokemon…even though i don’t really understand diamond or the squigle…

The next new pokemon i came across was the squirrelly  lil pokemon Minccino. I caught him in the dark grass because it was a lot easier to lvl there because of the stronger pokemon and that many of the battles are against multiple pokemon. For the most part, I don’t really like Normal pokemon. They are good in the beginning of the game to fill out your collection, but other then strong moves, they usually don’t have a whole lot going for them. It also really annoys main appeal of this guy is that he is shoooo cuuuuute.

This was the last new pokemon that i came across, and i readily caught it  because I’m not really using Purrlion anymore, and it’s easier to catch the evolved form that is Liepard instead of evolving it myself. Is this lazy? Hellz yea, but if they didn’t want you to do it this way, they wouldn’t have had lipards prowling around out there. I do know that the advantage of evolving pokemon yourself is that you can better customize their moves, and i think they may be stronger, but like i said, i don’t plan on using it. If i do, i likely will go through the trouble of evolving it myself.

It was after i had caught all of these pokemon that a friend of mine who is further along in the game than i told me that using ground pokemon is a bad idea “for serious”. Reason being that two of the three of the electric gyms pokemon are also fliers that could massacre my ground pokemon, and are immune to the ground moves that would normally decimate an electric pokemon. A little disappointed, but glad to be rid of the damn dirty-dile and tad-pole to replace them with a Dwebble and Roggenrolla. I kept Drilbur because he’s awesome and i still haven’t fought any of the other trainers in the gym. I have still been lvling, but seeing as i have just posted, meaning if i were to play more the next update wouldn’t have to be as long, i may play more. Then again, i did also pick up the new Golden Sun, so maybe not.
