I DID IT I BEAT THEM AND BECAME CHAMPION ✨
I ACTUALLY FINISHED MY FIRST POKEMON GAME EVER
Thank you to so many people on donphan.social and even pokemon.mastportal.info for all the tips!
Now I have to do this all over again for my Diamond team, but for now I’m just so proud of myself!
Happy birthday @stereoscopic ! 🎂 🎈
この紅茶は @glorfindel 向けですね。
@sachirin You should always have a few pokédolls on you just in case.
Before beating the champion, the level of the pokémons you encounter depends on the sector (excluding the unique pokémons that repop only once a day which can be more powerful). All pokémon in a given sector are around the same level, so if you encounter a pokémon that is too high level, you should avoid the whole sector.
After beating the champion, all pokémon in the wild lands will be at the same (high) level.
Ground/Water and Electrik/Water are good types combinations in general as they both have few weaknesses.
The type of the next gym depends on the version you play. Since you are playing 🛡️ , you'll probably want to use a few dark type.

I got a in surprise trade! I’m raising it so I can have an advantage against the champion, who as far as I know has two fire types now. (Also, is the starter evolution I prefer out of all three, but my starter is so I’m glad it worked out for me somehow.)
Also shoutout to Galarian , the flattest jerk ever to troll inside a cave.
Needed for @sachirin : a pokémon sandbox game where you only catch, feed, and play with your pokémons. No battles, no story.
Every time I run into this guy, “This Boy” by Franz Ferdinand plays in my head.
Also, re: what he said, it kind of stings but it’s true. I got my second badge but made a wrong decision in battle that could’ve been avoided if I stuck to my original plan. I just really suck at battling! But at least my Pokemon are happy and well-fed.
@sachirin oh me and my daughter have our very own island. I got stung by wasps twice! I have no idea what I’m doing!
[Shield] Got my first gym badge! #newbieplayingpokemon
I dawdled in the Wild Area too long and was in danger of having 4 out of 6 in my main team hitting the disobedience level - and I can't turn off exp share - so I swapped out a lot of the members along the way. is a revelation. (And also quite chubby. Can't shoof though.)
Made the Classic Newbie (TM) mistake of thinking certain types were strong against Grass but I was already in the herding section when I realized it and I couldn't swap out some of my team through the Pokemon Box. But it ended well anyway.
The GYM MUSIC, I was so intimidated and also bopping my head at the same time, it's definitely an experience. (I'm not so fond of the wild battle + trainer battle music.)
I'm trying to play as fast as I can, get all the badges if possible, but the 20th is closing in on me. In a few hours.
Pokemon newbie (since 2017) trying out too many games at the same time for some reason!
