Well, moving along. Updates are coming a little slower as a) It’s been a busy week and b) we’re reaching the end of the main storyline of Pokemon White. Oooooh. So yeah. Cut for spoilers. Cause I’m considerate. Or something.
Circling back to do some things. Going back to the route outside of Opelucid City to do some more exploring. The department store was a big disappointment. I always loved in previous games climbing floor after floor. In this game, the redesign made it all feel like it was just one big floor. Bummer.
There was the CHALLENGE CAVE too, but I’m not allowed in yet. Must be a post game thing.
I thought I’d head down to the cave with Axew, but when I got there, I found out I needed flash and strength, and guess what! None of the Pokemon in Sparkle’s party had either! So I decided to put that on the back burner.
So. Onto Iris’s gym. Can I say her maze is extremely hard? Because it is. I spent quite a bit of time figuring it out. She was a pretty tough gym leader as well. I was prepared, and still overleveled, so we walked out victorious.
Right to find Professor Juniper waiting for me outside. Seems she had super sensitive information regarding the dark stone that was sooooo sensitive, she couldn’t just call me and talk to me about it. The information being…she had no idea how to use the stone to summon a dragon. But she gave Sparkle a master ball, so all is cool I guess?
Off to Victory Road…except the Clerk stopped us. Seemed there was a strange pop up storm freaking everyone out. And as I’m the only one who can solve anything in this world, I had to go check it out. With my amazing deductive skills, and some wandering around lost, eventually we found an old women who could explain the situation. Plus she gave Sparkle soup! I think that’s the first time Sparkle has been fed in the entire game!
Seems the storms are caused by some Pokemon who is a big meanie that goes around and stirs us storms cause he feels like it. But if I were to catch him, the storms would stop, I would doom Unova to drought, and the day would be saved! Leaving the house, the pokemon decided to wave himself in front of my face, and then leave. He really is a meanie.
With that completed, it was back to Victory Road. On the way I bumped into Cheren, who’s butt I kicked, and Bianca, who gave me some max revives. I really don’t get all the Bianca hate. After all, this free stuff thing she’s started is really awesome.
I really liked how Victory Road was laid out in this game. I missed some items though, and wasn’t sure how to get them. I’ll just have to come back later?
Anyway, we know what comes next. Elite Four time.
