||Welcome to Hoenn!|
||Welcome to Hoenn!|
Rule 4:The Scout System. I just thought that I wanted to have the Camper be the stage before Forest Ranger. Then I just created a stage of Junior & Senior for each.Could you explain rules 4 and 5? I don’t understand.
|Junior Forest Scout||Senior Forest Scout||Junior Forest Ranger||Senior Forest Ranger|
|Rank 1 (Levels 1-14)||Rank 1 (Levels 22-28)||Rank 1 (Levels 28-45)||Rank 1 (Levels 46-60)|
|Grass||Fire||Dragon||Rank 2 (Level 60+)|
|Dark||Test: Normal||Test: Flying|
|Rank 2 (Levels 14-16)|
|Rank 3 (Levels 16-21)|
I see. What do the levels mean? Like, what level your team is as a whole?

|Treecko is the top pick for beginning Forest Rangers. Being Grass Type, it is a perfect fit for a future Forest Ranger, especially if you don't have a specification, like me.|
|Torchic is not recommended for Forest Rangers unless you are specifically being trained in Fire Creation & Management. A lot of girl scouts pick it because it is cute.|
|Mudkip is not recommended for Forest Rangers unless you want to deal with studies on water travel or cleanliness of bodies of water.|
|Junior Forest Scout|
|Rank 1 (Levels 1-14)|
|While I was visiting with my Dad, who is also a Scout Leader, a new camper came rushing in. He name was Wally, and he was wanting help to catch his first Pokemon so he could have one when he moved to the far off town of Verdanturf Town. The boy is sickly, and it is known that Verdanturf has clean air, which is why he is going there with his sister.|
Dad gave Wally a Zigzagoon (Level 7) to help him. He also asked me to help him since I have some experience now.
The two of us walked to the nearby grass of Route 102. Wally wasn't sure what to do, and he asked me for advice. Eventually, he runs into a Ralts (Level 5), which was a higher Ralts than I saw. A back and forth ensued, and it was eventually caught.
When we went back into Petalburg, Dad took back the Zigzagoon and Wally was ecstatic with his new capture. Wally departed, then Dad told me to plan for my first Test: Roxanne. I decided to stay with him for the rest of the day, with the test on my mind.
In the next Log, we will go onward to Route 104 and check that out. I saw on my map that there is also a forest (Petalburg Woods), so we will take time to see what Pokemon live there as well. It should get us to the other side of the forest, which is Rustboro City. Until next time, we will see you!
|Upon leaving Petalburg City, I explored Route 104, where I saw a log cabin where an old sailor sat outside with his Wingull. I battled a few trainers and captured a Taillow. Eventually, I crossed into Petalburg Woods, a sprawling location, and the site of a few captures and a few battles. I captured a Shroomish, Slakoth, Silcoon, & Cascoon.|
While in the Forest, I met a Devon Corporation Scientist who needed help being saved from a pirate. In return, the grateful scientist, gave me the Exp. Share, which is going to be very helpful in raising my team, especially because there is a Toggle On/Off feature.
While I cleared the forest, I am not ready to go to Rustboro. Once every Pokemon I have is up to Level 10 (including the two Ralts), I will push onward into the city itself. I don't know the challenge ahead that Roxanne will present, so the next Log will be a study session.
Until the next time, we will see you!
|With my Pokemon trained up to Level 10, I moved into Rustboro City. There, I met with May, who was surprised at my progress. After she departed, intent to take on the exam, I checked through with the people.|
I checked into the Pokemon Center, asking her about any information about the exam, which, while she is unable to help me, directs me to the library in the Pokemon Center, where I look for an information guide. Seeing me unable to find any information, Nurse Joy suggested that I go to the Pokemon School.
In the Pokemon School, I sit and participate in the class, then look through the library, obtaining a book on The Pokemon Gyms of Hoenn. In the first few pages, I discover that the first Exam is in Rustboro City, and that it is Rock Type. This book is going to be exceptionally useful as I go on.
With that said, I began to write a study guide to face the Exam based on the Pokemon I have obtained so far. The book also mentions the weaknesses and strengths of each type.
Bug, Fire, Flying, Ice
Fighting, Grass, Ground, Steel, Water
Pokemon I Can Use:
Treecko, Lotad, Shroomish
Pokemon I Might Use:
Beautifly, Wingull, Surskit
Pokemon I Will Not Use:
Poochyena, Zigzagoon, Dustox, Taillow, Ralts, Slakoth
|Going into the Elevation Exam, I was introduced to Roxanne, who hoped I would present a strong challenge. To this test, I brought in:|
I beat the other test takers with Treecko, setting it at Level 15. I then put Treecko, Beautifly, Wingull, and Surskit in the PC, meaning I would be facing the Exam with Lombre and Shroomish.
Examiner Roxanne opened with Geodude (Level 12), and I opened with Lombre. Lombre struck first with Absorb, which would have taken Geodude down except for Sturdy. Geodude hit with Rock Tomb, causing some damage. Lombre finished with another Absorb.
I kept Lombre out as it was close to turning over to Level 15. She brought out Nosepass (Level 14). I then switched to Shroomish, who took a Tackle. Shroomish reacted by using the ability Effect Spore. Effect Spore may cause Paralysis, Poison, or Sleep. For Nosepass, the effect was Sleep. Shroomish kept using Mega Drain to take the sleeping Nosepass down. I passed!
I am now a Junior Forest Scout Rank 2! Roxanne expanded the list of Types I could capture:
Not everything was good, however, for as I left the Exam Center, I heard a cry for help. There was another one of those pirates running through town, with a scientist chasing after him. The pirate apparently has stolen important papers. The scientist is asking for help, and as a scout, it is my mission to help!
In the next Log, we will stop the pirate as we explore the area around Rustboro City. Until then, we will see you!
|The last building in Rustboro City is the Devon Corporation, producer of much of the technology in Hoenn. For helping the scientist, I got to meet the President of the Corporation, Mr. Stone, who asked me to deliver a letter to his son, Steven, in Dewford Town. Being the scout that I am, I was glad to help the man.|
|In order to get there, however, Mr. Briney had to help by sailing across the sea. Departing Route 104 with Nincada and Treecko, I arrived on Dewford. Mr. Briney suggested to go to Granite Cave, since Steven liked to look at rocks.|
While I was heading over to Granite Cave, I checked out the Town. It is a small town, but it has a Pokemon Gym, so I will have to use my guide book to determine what type it is. I beat up the few trainers, got a fishing rod, then headed over to the cave, intent on completing my mission.
As I came in there, however, I ran into a queue line, and I was unable to pass. I also caught a Zubat and Geodude while I was there. I then departed, hopeful I would complete my mission soon. In the next Log, we will go Fishing with the new fishing rod I received. Until next time, we will see you!
