Received the usual gubbins from the kids after going through the nickname process etc, Pokedex and the letter of consent to give to my mum. Also Froakie, which will be Wondertraded once I have caught a Pokemon on my first route as I opted not to go with my Optional rule of keeping it. The only optional rule I am doing is number 3, the three strikes rule once I pass level 30. Main reason I chose Froakie is I'd get too attached if I'd picked Chespin to Wondertrade.
Bought Potions and Pokeballs, ready to start my journey. Thought it would be a good idea to be female this time, even if I am still hating the default look of the female character. Why must they insist that the girls are in skirts or shorts? Only reason I went with a girl this time is because on my other game I am male -.- I normally ALWAYS pick male characters because the girls are always so pink and fru-fru, at least in this game I can change her clothes!
Attempt 1: Nincada from Germany, Level 12. Can't send back in right now as it knows 2 HM Moves, will move into PC when I get to next town and try again.
Attempt 1: Chinchou, level 25. Too high of a level. Sent from someone in France.
Attempt 2: Pelipper, level 26. Too high of a level and it also knows a HM move =.= Will send out again when I'm at the next town. Didn't expect anything amazing since I was trading with someone from Japan. I don't think I've ever gotten anything good from someone in Japan via Wondertrade, it is always fodder!
Had to battle the trainer with the stuff I got, didn't have much of a choice since scumbags sent me HM moved Pokemon. Not a good start but I wasn't expecting anything great, I'm Wondertrading at 1:30pm on a Monday. Will dodge as many trainers as possible in the forest and battle them once I have a team I can use.
Attempt 1: Zubat, level 9. Not bad, sent from someone in Japan but is English origin. I can work with this, will keep for now seeing as I don't want to risk getting ANOTHER HM moved Pokemon.
Nearly lost Zubat immediately to the girl with the Pikachu that you can't avoid but came through thanks to Supersonic and Astonish. Taking full advantage of the walking Pokemon Center following behind me in this area. Zubat hit level 10.
Attempt 1: Beldum, Level 1 sent from Germany! FUCK YES I AM KEEPING IT. I love Beldum! >w<
Gotta level up Tanhel, brb grinding very carefully due to its only move being Take Down. Made it to Santalune City, am going to Wondertrade the other 2 Pokemon now I'm at a PC. Tanhel hit level 3.
Attempt 2: Eevee, Level 17 from Japan so Japanese named. Yeeeah why not. Will keep it in reserve for now, just so I have something spare in the back. Don't want to party everything and then wipe!
Attempt 3: Charmander, Level 1, another Japanese Pokemon. Don't have a choice but to keep it.
I am going to stop there for now because my internet is being a dickhead and keeps disconnecting my 3DS. So I'll just sum up my current team and will probably grind a bit before I report again. That Charmander is going to be a big help in the first gym if I remember right that it is a bug type gym. I'm not looking anything up in advance by the way, so I'm not going to be looking at what trainers and gym leaders have in advance and such.
-----SESSION PAUSED----------SESSION RESUMED-----
Ok, got the roller skates after a little bit of grinding, then proceeded onto Route 22 to catch my next Pokemon to Wondertrade. I felt like it, otherwise I would've waited, plus I wanted to take on the trainers there to grind a bit more. Nearly lost Zubat to the first trainers Litleo, seriously I fucking confused it like 3 times and it didn't hit itself one AND the first ember it hit me with burned me.
-Caught a Bunnelby on Route 22-
NICKNAME: Guylian (because I just had some)
GENDER: Male--BEGIN WONDERTRADE--
> Guylian the Bunnelby
Attempt 1: Marill, Level 15 from someone in Germany. Nnnng nah, really not feeling like training a Marill.
Attempt 2: Noibat! Level 1 and it is named! Awwwah, yeah I'll keep him XD
NICKNAME: Bat Sabbath (ahhh! X3)
NATURE: Rash (Impetuous and silly)
MOVES: Screech, Supersonic, Tackle, Tailwind--WONDERTRADE COMPLETE, BUNNELBY FOR NOIBAT--
Gonna do a bit more grinding, get everyone up to at least level 10 then take on the gym. Bat Sabbath will need a bit of power grinding right now but if I remember right I get the exp.share shortly after the gym so that will speed along further grinding sessions.
Seriously, why is my accuracy so fucking bad whenever I play Pokemon? Every Supersonic attack I throw either misses or lasts for 1 turn! Its so stupid how bad I am at this! Also I nearly lost Bat Sabbath to a damn Metapod that knew tackle! A METAPOD! A FUCKING COCOON. Going to train this Noibat on Wild Pokemon until it is up to snuff I think, trainer battles seem to be too hardcore for it until it learns a special attack.
Right, I feel confident enough to take on the gym!GYM CHALLENGE TIME
Noibat - Level 11
Beldum - Level 11
Zubat - Level 11
Charmander - Level 12
As I thought, the trainers were no match for me, especially since Bat Sabbath learnt Gust. Didn't skip any of them, just took them all on and pretty much blitzed through them all with Noibat alone. Bat Sabbath levelled up to level 12 just before we got to Viola. This badge is as good as gained! COME AT ME PHOTOGRAPHER!
Water Sport is up so I can't use Charmander until it has petered out. Bat Sabbath took the Surskit out with little to no problems, but he is quite damaged so I swapped to Beldum for now until Water Sport has gone, then I'll switch to Charmander to finish the Vivillon off. It probably wasn't the best choice to swap to Beldum though due to Infestation, just means I need to keep an eye on health.
NEARLY lost Tanhel because of that fucking infestation! Went down to 1hp, but then the infestation cleared and I managed to get it out of there before hand! Charmander finished Vivillon off and BOOM! Badge won!BUG BADGE ACQUIRED. TM83 - INFESTATION ACQUIRED.
-wince- So...many... camera... puns... UGH GET ME OUT OF HERE. Quick trip to the Pokemon Center for more potions and a heal up, then a quick visit to the boutique next door to buy a new hat and start the process of de-pinking myself. I think I will leave it there for today. Will pick up again later, possibly tomorrow if I get off work quick enough! But until then!
Noibat: Level 12
Beldum: Level 12
Zubat: Level 11
Charmander: Level 14-----SESSION PAUSED-----
Decided to grind a bit on Route 22 before I headed onwards, plus I still had a few trainers here that I could use to grind. Before hand though, I stopped at the journalist woman and grabbed the Exp.Share as I knew it would help with levelling. I feel a bit overlevelled for the trainers now though as they were challenging me with Level 8 Pokemon and I was battling them with level 11s. Both Zubat and Bat Sabbath learnt Bite whilst grinding.
Got bored of grinding pretty quickly, Zubat went up to level 12 and Bat Sabbath went up to 13. Proceeded onto Route 4 in order to get my next Wondertrade Pokemon and hopefully my next member of my team. Or my next Zigzagoon, who knows!
-Caught a Ledyba on Route 4-
NICKNAME: Amp (I have a speaker thing that looks like an amp that I plug my Ipod into)
GENDER: Female--BEGIN WONDERTRADE--
> Amp the Ledyba
Attempt 1: Ralts, Level 1 from someone in the UK. I have terrible luck with Ralts when it comes to locke attempts, so I'm going to try again. They bring bad luck to me. Seriously they're a curse, plus it is lonely natured.
Attempt 2: Poochyena, Level 2 from someone in Germany. Heh, heh, no.
Attempt 3: ...A Magikarp. Level 25 from some scumbag in America with the tag of "Nappy Nation WTW". -_- I'll be boxing that.
ABILITY: Swift Swim
NATURE: Quirky (Highly Persistent)
MOVES: Splash, Tackle (At least it knows tackle...)--WONDERTRADE COMPLETE, LEDYBA FOR MAGIKARP--
-Victory music played on the kazoo here-
Can't win them all I guess. If I don't get anything good for my next Wondertrade I'll bring the Eevee out, it can evolve into whatever it wants to. Scumbag Nappy Nation follower ¬¬ The point of Wondertrade Wednesday is to be nice on Wondertrade all the time, not just on Wednesday! Or are you one of those scumbags that wondertrades shit on the Wednesday too in hopes of getting everyone elses hard work!? SCUM!
Passerby Alpha gave me a nice! Awwah how nice X) Passerby Alpha wants to trade with you! O-o I don't think I put anything in my rules about if people want to trade, if they're still about after this battle I'll give them a go.
Nah they gave up, sorry Alpha I don't have the Dodrio you're looking for, I'm Wonderlocked!
--QUICK NOTE-- For those Wonderlocking, I'm throwing this in as a rule. If a random passerby asks to trade, it is up to you if you want to accept it or not. You cannot ask anyone to trade, but if they ask YOU, that is free gain. Other rules still apply though. Also you cannot accept trades from friends because that would be cheating. Passerbys and Acquaintances ONLY.
After battling the 2 skater kids dashing around the fountain, Charmander evolved into Charmeleon and learnt Dragon Rage! First evolution acquired and haven't lost a single team member yet!
Burmy always looks like it should be hanging from something, like there should be a branch above it or something O-o It just looks weird floating in the air. Also Zubat has gotten so much easier to train since it learnt Bite, 2 Bites normally take out anything now.
...Preschooler Adrian, who did you trade for that Magikarp? And what did you trade for it? Because you got scammed kid, a level 9 Magikarp isn't cool and it makes me worried for what you traded for it.
Fun fact: The hedgerows on this route are known as geometric gardens. You learnt somthing during this playthrough.
Everybody is level 15 and above now! I feel confident enough to move in to the next town. Arrived at Lumiose City! Gained TM27, Return. Oh boy! A MOVE I WILL NEVER USE.
"The professers lab is just down here!"
-gets a cab-
Did I ever mention I'm lazy as shit?
Used my Pokemiles to get 29 Berry Juices as they heal the same as Potions and that is all I am using at this stage. I'm saving my money to get a new outfit and possibly a haircut since I picked the blonde default and I am actually brunette XD
Sycamores lab has the weirdest elevator ever. Ah well, time to kick his ass! Also acquired TM54, False Swipe! I'll be using that in the future.
"Just so you know, I'm not that tough!"
Good to know professor now KNEEL BEFORE ZOD. And by Zod I mean BAT SABBATH.
Picked Charmander from Professor Sycamore since I already have a Charmeleon, means I get its mega stone!
-Acquired Charmander from Professor Sycamore. Flipped a coin, got tails. Sorry Charmander, you weren't going to be used anytime soon anyway-
NICKNAME: Nerf (I have multiple nerf guns in my room)
Acquired the Charizardite X stone! Also went to the 2nd floor and got some Luxury Balls! I will probably never use them because I have bad luck in catching anything in Luxury balls, they never seem to want to live the life of luxury.
Also thought it was good to note that Nerf is Lonely natured. Why is this important you ask? BECAUSE I SEEM TO ALWAYS GET LONELY NATURED POKEMON. Stop reminding me how I live my life game!
> Nerf the Charmander
Attempt 1: Bunnelby, Level 10 from America. It is nicknamed My Sh#t
. Poor thing, back into Wondertrade you go, I'm not allowed to show you mercy like I normally would. I normally release Pokemon with such vile nicknames, it is cruel otherwise.
Attempt 2: Another Beldum from Germany. Rules are rules. Otherwise I'd gladly have 2 Metagross ^~^Attempt 2 DUPLICATE REDO 1:
Zigzagoon from a scrub in the UK. Scumbag British folk ¬¬
Attempt 3: Honedge from France! Thats more like it! ^~^ Welcome Not-Balthazar but close enough!

ABILITY: No Guard
NATURE: Brave (Likes to thrash about)
MOVES: Tackle, Swords Dance, Metal Sound
NOTE: Apparently 4 Perfect IVs (Attack, Sp.Attack, Sp.Defence and Speed)--WONDERTRADE COMPLETE, CHARMANDER FOR HONEDGE--
Met Lionface Lysandre. I just want to get a razor and just... bzzt, right up his face. He desires for a more beautiful world, well I desire for a Pokemon game where the female protagonist isn't in shorts or a skirt, we both have very unlikely goals my friend.
That guy who is apparently my neighbour wants to meet me in the cafe nearby, but I think I will leave this here for now as my internet has just cut off again on my 3DS and I need to charge it. Next time I will meet him in the cafe and go through all that cutscene stuff.
I hope I don't get fucked up by the Lumiose glitch like I did my first runthrough, I saved in the Pokemon Center and apparently it has been patched so I /should/ be ok... might do a bit of grinding before I continue on next time too, just to give Honedge a bit of backbone.
Noibat: Level 15
Beldum: Level 15
Zubat: Level 16
Charmeleon: Level 18
Honedge: Level 1-----SESSION PAUSED-----
Ok, resuming Wonderlocke. I've done a bit of grinding since last time to bring Honedge up to speed and the others all gained some levels too, so I'll do another rundown on my team.CURRENT TEAM:
Honedge: Level 12
Beldum: Level 16
Noibat: Level 17
Zubat: Level 17
Charmeleon: Level 19
Now if I remember right I need to go to that cafe place and meet whatshisface and learn about Lysandre Lionface a bit more. So basically, TIME FOR DIALOGUE SCENE, DIALOGUE HARDER. Oh I should also point out that I got my hair done in the game, so I am no longer blonde XD I am like I am in reality, long haired brunette with a scruffy front look. Can't wait to get rid of that stupid tiny ponytail bit at the back though, it looks so stupid!
Diantha looks like she has wings, I like her.
"Everything beautiful should stay that way forever"
Lysandre, I don't think you understand how stuff works mate. You cannot stand the thought of the world becoming uglier? Have you looked in the MIRROR? You're not exactly a looker >.> I prefer my men with more metal on them. Also I wish your friends in this game commented whenever you changed your appearence, that would be a nice touch. Like when I got my hair done it would be nice for Calem to realise and be like "Oh! You dyed your hair! Brunette suits you" or "There is something different about you Samface, did you get a new hat?" X)
"How about we compete against one another? Just know I won't loose to you" ...Mate. Mate. MATE. You won't win. Well, that cutscene is done. Why did he want to meet me in a cafe to ask me THAT? He could've asked me ANYWHERE! Stupid neighbour >.> Anyway, onto the next route!
AHHH IT'S BONNIE- I mean MR BONDAGE- Eeeer no wait I mean Mr BONDING. Yeah >.> <.< Bonding, not bondage... heh... Skartplug... Route 5, time to catch a new Pokemon. Aaaand suddenly Lucario. Damnit Korrina if you can't control your Pokemon you should keep it on a leash! I swear there is a law about that somewhere!
-Caught a Pancham on Route 5-
NICKNAME: Peach (I has peach drink)
GENDER: Female--BEGIN WONDERTRADE--
> Peach the Pancham
Attempt 1: Japanese Zigzagoon, level 14 from someone in the USA. -_-
Attempt 2: Oddish, Level 14 from someone in Italy. I haven't actually trained an Oddish before, so I think I'll keep it.
GENDER: Female ( =_= )
NATURE: Adamant (Sturdy Body)
MOVES: Sweet Scent, Acid, Poison Powder, Stun Spore--WONDERTRADE COMPLETE, PANCHAM FOR ODDISH--
Suddenly Tierno wants a battle, good job I healed up. Then again he only has a Corphish... do you think he is doing a Wonderlocke too, which is why he doesn't have one of the starters? He Wondertraded his starter Pokemon and got a Corphish XD A Corphish that only seem to know Swords Dance, wow he lucked out, gonna be hard for him to do his locke!
Nearly lost Honedge to some dudes Kadabra, stupid confusion >.> She's ok though. Charmeleon saved the day, he is getting dangerously close to the not listening mark though. I think that mark is level 30... I should've listened at the gym. Looking at all my Pokemon right now, they're all doing quite well, most are nearly level 20 or have passed that o.o Even Oddish is caught up.
-A random passerby wants to trade!-
Lets see if they can read... I have my message as Wonderlocked and I recently shouted out that I was Wonderlocked. I am only going to offer them the 2 Pokemon I have in reserve, which is the Eevee I got before and the Magikarp I ended up with. Lets see how this pans out. I might catch a Pokemon later just to name "Wonderlocked!" to use as communication.
Huh, looks like they can! And they're a nice person too! Started off by offering me level 100s which I declined, they're not use to me at max level! I can't use a level 100 Delphox or a level 100 Shaymin!--WONDERLOCKE PASSERBY TRADE. EEVEE FOR SHINY ESPURR--
ABILITY: Own Tempo
NATURE: Timid (Takes plenty of siestas)
MOVES: Assist, Barrier, Trick, Yawn

ABILITY: Cute Charm
NATURE: Quiet (Mischievous)
MOVES: Pound, Growl, Encore
NOTES: Apparently has perfect Sp.Def.
So thats my two reserve Pokemon traded out for one Pokemon that is exempt to rules and another that is still within my limits to use! Well then. I wasn't expecting to get a shiny on this run XD But there you go! Random people around the world to the rescue! Like I stated in the rules, if a passerby asks to trade it is up to you to take it or not!
I think I will leave it there, going to finish these trainers off on this route then write up my team. I need to get around what just happened with my 2 reserve Pokemon XD
Honedge: Level 17
Oddish: Level 18
Noibat: Level 19
Zubat: Level 19
Beldum: Level 18
Charmeleon: Level 22-----SESSION PAUSED------
Right! Time to continue the Wonderlocke! I do believe the Snorlax stuff is next.
Just so you know, I won't be able to Wondertrade immediately as my internet is currently down. So I will Wondertrade when I can. I need to hurry up now though my Pokemon are getting very high in levels, Optional number 3 will be kicking in soon o-o
...Wow, I just became the owner of a berry field. That was sudden, but at least it means I can get more berries now! I did enjoy doing all the berry splicing the first time around XD I just planted the berries I was given and left, will come back to that in my grinding offtime.
One thing I've learnt that not a lot of people realise is on Route 6, see the lines of bushes behind the trainers? If you skate past them really closely Pokemon will jump out of the large ones, they shake when you get close. I've noticed that quite a few people haven't don't know that is a thing.
-Caught a Venipede on Route 6!-
I will trade him off when I get the internet back. Onwards to the palace! After I've taken on the trainers of course. Ok, at this point everyone is basically level 20 just so you are up to date.
Tanhel the Beldum evolved into Metang and learnt Metal Claw and Confusion! Now he can be real credit to team!
Oddish also evolved into Gloom! Gloomy Gloomy Gloomy owo
"The owner of this palace follows the school of thought that you can never have too much money"
"Yeesh! This is how the rich get richer!"
Owners of Palace confirmed as Conservatives. Assholes >.> I only had 2k on me and I was going to use that to buy some damn trousers. I am so not leaving here without the Amulet Coin.
"Don't sleep in the kings bed!"
-proceeds to sleep in the kings bed- FUCK THE POLICE.
SIT ON ALL THE CHAIRS! Also nicked the amulet coin because I'm an asshole.
Y'know, a fireworks display is really a bad way to reward people for basically scaring your Pokemon out of its wits and cornering it for you so you can get it back. I've seen how Ollie and Ping react to fireworks, I can't imagine Pokemon being that much different >.> Well most of them. Anyway, FIREWORKS DISPLAY.
Found Cut in the garden! Nearly left without it!
Fireworks time! Time for the feels moment! Also the asshole who owns the palace is just a dick and suffers from what I call "Conservative Disorder" >.> Basically assumes everything is fine and nobody is suffering because THEY are ok with money and such. They don't look out beyond their own backyard. Anyway, onto the Snorlax.
-Caught the Snorlax on Route 7!-
NICKNAME: Kebab (My dinner XD)
Time for some more trainer battles! Nothing wrong with a bit of training right? Well it is becoming a problem because my Pokemon are rapidly approaching level 30 XD
Thank goodness for Honedge knowing Swords Dance! I had no idea that Smeargle would know Ember! o-o Also my internet is back so once I get to the next city I'll be Wondertrading the two Pokemon out!
Damn Pikachu thundershocking my Honedge when there is a Fletchling on the field! ASSESS THE THREAT PIKACHU YOU MORON I AM NO THREAT TO YOU. Well I am now I've swords danced >) GOODBYE.
XD Trevor looks like he's seen something he didn't wanna see when he is beaten. He's like "Oh no no no! Damnit =.="
Zubat evolved into Golbat!
-Caught a Zubat in Zubat Cave!-
-Caught an Inkay on Route 8!-
NICKNAME: Cola (Other beverages are available)
Wow the time my internet went out I get a ton of Pokemon to Wondertrade! And it is nearly 11pm so I'm gonna be hitting loads of Americans! Hopefully not a load of scumbag Americans.
Oh come ON I just wanna get to the next damn city! >< I really need to get some repels, taking 1 step and getting an encounter is getting ridiculous.
FINALLY got to Ambrette Town e.e Primus that took YEARS. I really have to go back later to grind on the trainers I avoided. But for now I'm just gonna Wondertrade and then call it a day.
