Thank you, for the Elite Four of Fire Red and Leaf Green.
Thank you for the levels and experience you provide so I can raise pokemon to full maturity (3rd evolution) in just two or three runs.
Thank you, for the typing that affords common weaknesses, and fast, designated killers.
The last five Elite4 runs have involved:
, that beats the sense out of everything
, with Psychic and T-bolt, used to conserve the PP of T-bolt for Lapras
, that Blazes through everything after being hit once or twice
, that couldn't hit a darned snake with the bone of its mother.
~Two babies that grow up, at the cost of adults' safety and wellbeing.
And that's how I took a level 5 bagon to a
, a level 20 trapinch to a
, a level 17 numel to a
with Rock Slide.
Of course, the four main pokemon are now level 80, and not really hurting too badly. But my Hoenn Dex is now a fait accompli, and my national dex, is almost done.
Thank you, my elite 4, for being such wimps, and coordinating your defeat in a convenient manner.
