I decided to leave the town today, since Fantina won't let me fight her
She uses Ghost types!
Maud said she hated it, though
She really is a Black Mareep...
I got an Egg, but i had to put Alex in the Box to do that
Libby then asked me why she wasn't in the Box yet, since she's only used to cut or break things
I told her it was because she was used to cut and break things
And to be honest, she's kinda growing on me, even if she is a total derp
I wonder what's going to hatch from this Egg!
Oh, hey, I found this creepy guy with an Odd Keystone that he gave me yesterday
I found a tower that needed the Keystone!
It ended up saying "Hallowed Tower"
It is a very small tower
A little farther north I found a tower made of pure stone
It was a graveyard...
Maud kept asking me why I brought her to all the Ghost-Type Sock Hops
I don't know what a Sock Hop is
I woke up with Harold on my head
Or, at least, Harold's ghost
I had no idea what to do, so I just let him sleep on my head
He always looked so cute when he was asleep...
Then he told me that someone would die today
He told me that the one that I hadn't been paying lots of attention to would go
I asked him how he knew that
Then he disappeared
So I decided to be extra careful with Libby
I gave her that little blue candy thing I found a while ago that I forgot to mention
I even made sure to go to the Pokemart and buy some extra Super Potions
Then I fought a Rancher north of Solaceon town
And then Eleanore died
That's when I realized something
Eleanore was the one that worked the hardest
She was the one who always got things done when I needed it
She was the one that kept everyone together
She was the one that tried the hardest to get me to love her
And I did love her
Just not as much as the others
And then she died trying to get my approval...
I feel like a horrible trainer
I stayed in Solaceon town for the rest of the day
Then later I buried Eleanore in the Lost Tower, saying the usual prayers to Arceus
Harold's ghost kept patting my shoulder, telling me it would be alright
Death is just another part of life, he said
I hope he's right
A Geodude used SelfDestruct on Ginger
It's not fair! Why is this stupid route north of Solaceon town so freaking hard!
I gave up
So I went South instead
But when I tried to go south, I found another Ponyta...
I ran away and never looked back, giving the people at Lost tower Ginger's pokeball
She was so fast, and cute, and such a girly girl...
I think it's actually making me sick thinking about her
Maud seemed really sad too
I don't think she likes it when people die
I don't think she even likes ghosts
She must not even like being a ghost either
She tried making up for it by curbstomping everyone
She's very serious about things
After I went south I found a really old house and a bunch of Policemen
There were some old people there too
I decided to fight an old lady
I... I'm starting to think I'm not cut out to be a trainer
Mister Sed and Maud told me that I should keep going, that all trainers go through this
So I decided to pluck out some guys from the PC
I have a male Shinx I got from a really long time ago named Fred
And a Mime Jr. named Faye (it's female somehow. I hope she doesn't evolve anytime soon)
Continued to go south
I am so glad no one else died, but Faye was useless
Fred evolved into a Luxio too
I also caught a Roselia and a Pikachu
Tried using Sporty the Pikachu for a bit but he didn't turn out so well, was more of a baby
I decided to leave him and Faye in the box.
Fred refused to get back into the box though, so I kept her aroun
Oh wow. I think I just confused Fred for Dee-Dee there...
Fred is a guy, not a girl
I kept getting stuck in a huge marsh full of mud on the ground, urgh
But I ended up making it to Pastoria City late at night, in the rain
The rain washed away some of the mud, but I still needed a shower BAD
I stayed at the Lakeside Hotel for the night
MAN it was cold out there
I need to get some pants or something, this skirt is not helping
But it's late and I'm tired, so I guess the rest of my journey is up ahead
Why hasn't that egg hatched yet?
I had yet another dream!
It was of that girl from the Contest Hall book
She had a Blaziken and it was so freaking strong and powerful I don't even...!
She callenged me to a battle
I threw my Pokeball without thinking, it's like I wasn't even controlling my own movements
Then a girl with pink hair and dark skin came out
That was when I knew I was dreaming
She turned around and spoke to me in the exact same language as that girl in overalls from before
I caught the same word as before, but then she realized I didn't understand her
So she spoke French
Then I woke up, and now I'm writing this, and soon I'll go back to sleep.
Fred woke me up at around 9 this morning
He said he really wanted to get out of this building and do something for once
So I got up, put my adventure clothes on, and went out into town
I asked if they had any clothing stores nearby, so I went there and got some skinny jeans
It took me a while to find the right ones, and everyone kept pestering me to get on with it already
Eventually we left, but not before I checked out some interesting things in the town
There was a gym there!
But I decided to go out to the field eastwards and train
Caught a female Shellos that I accidentally named Jeremy
She doesn't seem to mind though
She's very shy, but is also very funny!
She just needs some help asserting herself
I'm sure Maud will help her on that regard
Maud doesn't seem to pay attention very much lately, she always seems to be thinking about something or other
Fred's pestering me to stop writing in my journal so that we can keep training and getting stronger
I guess I'll have to catch up later, then
Okay, so here I am, catching up
I found Lake Valor, and I was at its lakefront for a while
There was also this really fancy restaurant where you could do double battles with people
Oh! And I met this guy who could tell me how my pokemon thought of me by walking in front of him!
He was really cool, and told me things about my pokemon that they probably wouldn't have told me
I hope to visit him again after a while
Well, I'm tired after all that battling at the restaurant, so I guess I'll just get something to eat and go to bed.
I defeated Crasher Wake!
After about an eternity of battling wild pokemon to get Fred stronger!
A passing Trainer I met said that what I was doing was called 'Grinding'
Though I did somehow manage to get Maud to warm up to me
I think she was just really happy that I was having so much fun with Fred? Maybe?
Probably not, though. Maud's kind of selfish
Mister Sed says that he would really like it if he could do something more for once
He told me that so far he only managed to win against one gym
But then I had to remind him that I used Fred to beat this gym just like I did with him and Roark
There was also Eleanore that I used to fight against Gardenia...
Why are there so many Ponyta up north from Pastoria City?
I don't get that
Well, not much else happened today
Crasher Wake took a lot out of us
And I'm almost out of Super Potions
I should probably restock before I go out
I swear, this bag is like magic, I can hold as many things as I want!
So many things happened today like you would not believe.
First off, I went north and found Veilstone City
Then I challenged the gym there and won with Maud
Maud and Fred are now both my strongest pokemon!
But I don't love them any more than I love Mister Sed
Also, that egg hatched into a Happiny!
She's so cute, but she's kind of loud
She looks like she's pretty close friends with Liam, though
I also decided to pluck out a Zubat I caught in a cave earlier
I need to nickname her soon
She seems so lonely, and shy...
And then when I came out of the Pokemon Center, Lucas came up to me saying that Team Galactic stole his Pokedex!
I got so mad, so we both went up to them, whooped their Pokemon, and got his Pokedex back
Then I taught my new-ish Zubat Fly and went to Pastoria City, since that was where the Galactic Dunce said they were going
So I went there, chased the guy I found there for a few minutes, until Barry showed up and fought me
I hate how the League Rules state that you can't run away from a Trainer Battle
Oh yeah, did I mention that I had a friend named Barry? I might have forgotten to write about that
So anyways, after I beat him, I followed the Galactic Dunce again
Until I got blocked off from following him into the lake by these two guys who were being idiots
Everyone is such an idiot today
So then I gave up and Cynthia came up to me and asked me about the Psyduck in Route 210(?)
I told her I knew about them, and she gave me a SecretPotion
So I flew to the Psyduck, gave them the SecretPotion, and then crashed at a local Diner and slept the rest of the afternoon away
I'd kep going, but I'm really tired and I want to get some sleep, so I'll finish this up for tonight.
