Yvonne: Log Three

Pokemon Y is not a very difficult game, but it is very fun. Wonder-trading continues to be an addicting, Pokemon-roulette of sorts. I traded a Level 25 Meowstic, and I could have ended up with a Level 1 Caterpie, but I ended up with a Level 35 Klefki from Japan. My A-Team Pokemon are almost always overpowered when dealing with other trainers and Gym Leaders, which maybe explains why I spend so much time with my B-Team and my… C-Team?

A-Team
Meowstic Lv.45
Umbreon Lv.45
Heliolisk Lv.44
Chesnaught Lv.44
Blaziken Lv.47
Blastoise Lv.43

B-Team
Hippowdon Lv.35
Axew Lv.30
Floette Lv.29
Pangoro Lv.43

C-Team? or, Pokemon I Have But Don’t Use
Victreebel Lv.46
Sandslash Lv.44
Gabite Lv.28
Skrelp Lv.25
Klefki Lv.35
Honedge Lv.32
Golett Lv.24
Linoone Lv.24
Braixen Lv.30
Beedrill Lv.23
Jolteon Lv.22

It’s weird, you know? I’m taking on the fifth gym right now, an Electric-Type gym, with my B-Team Hippowdon. He’s not the strongest Ground-Type I have, that would be the Sandslash I got over Wonder-Trade. But I’m using him because he’s closer in level to the gym trainers, and I want to get more money, and gain more experience. The way the gym is structured, I could probably fight all of three trainers and move on to the gym leader, but I’m going out of my way to fight all nine trainers – because my B-Team could use the experience, and Yvonne could use the money. I know back when I was little, when I was Pokemon’s target audience, I would have taken the shortcuts. It almost seems disingenuous of the game NOT to tell you “Hey, take the longer route, you’ll benefit.”
