I'm baaaaaack! And I'm now the Champion in US. Had to completely reshape my team. Here's the first HOF class
Hazel (Lopunny), level 58
Saki (Passimian), Level 59
Quail (Xatu) level 59
Panther (Persian) level 61
Nettles (Jellicent) level 59
Espina (Togedemaru) level 60
Managed to take out the Ghost totem on my first try. Haven’t done that since Gumshoos. Had my new Dedenne paralyze it while the rest of my team gradually wore it down until Saki KO’d with Iron Head.
Also defeated totem Araquarnid in UM. Much easier this time thanks to Hawlucha.
Cleared the second Grand Trial this morning. Passimian (Saki) and Leafeon (Moss) did most of the heavy lifting. Those 2 may have earned permanent spots on my team now. Will give more thought to the last 2 slots when I get to the next island.
Totem Lurantis is still a nightmare. Took me down the first battle. Got by on the second try thanks to my newly acquired Leafeon and Hazel spamming Baby Doll Eyes to partially negate Solar Blade.
Still trying to figure out the remaining 4 slots to my US team.
Right now, Bengal and Hazel are the only permanent team members in US; everything else is a revolving door.
Defeated the Totem Raticate this morning in UM. Team still taking shape.
I'm loving these games so far.
Just completed the first trial in US.
Ribbons (Cutiefly), level 13
Bengal (Litten), Level 13
Meowth (no nickname yet), level 12
Kuro (Zorua), level 13
Amby (Slowpoke), level12
Buneary (no nickname yet), level 15.
Not really a whole lot to say so far, except I dig the new music.
Managed to defeat the League. My team was underleveled, so the E4 and Champion were a huge challenge. Kukui managed to take out everyone but Shisa. Thankfully, the Arcanine managed to take out Kukui's last 2 Pokemon and seal the win for me. And to think I was considering leaving him out of my...
Great minds ;).
Got lucky against Olivia. She had me dead to rights, but Petra toughed out what should have been a finishing blow and defeated her Lycanroc Midnight.
In Malie City now, heading to Route 10.
Only team change is I'm rotating Ribbons with either Passimian (Lemur) or Beware...
Evolved my Cutiefly into Ribombee and smacked down the Totem Lurantis. On to the Akala Kahuna.
Lycanroc Midday (Petra), Lv 26
Dartrix (Tyto), Lv 24
Ribombee (Ribbons), Lv 25
Persian (Kuro), Lv 23
Espeon (Lynx), Lv 22
Growlithe (Shisa), Lv 23
I just attempted Mallow's trial. I thought it would be a breeze with it being a Grass Totem since I have Dartrix, Cutiefly and Growlithe in my team. I still thought I had it in the bag when I saw Lurantis was the Totem. But then I could only watch helplessly as it massacred my entire team with...
