One lunatic's love-hate relationship with the Pokémon franchise, and his addled musings on its rights, wrongs, ins and outs. Come one, come all, and indulge my delusions of grandeur as I inflict my opinions on anyone within shouting distance.
Steven stone’s mega Metagross hits like a truck doesn’t he?
do. No Earthquake, though, unlike in the
original Ruby and Sapphire, which makes him substantially easier to
outmanoeuvre in terms of type coverage.
Giga Impact also creates a lot of openings for your Pokémon to come in
and hit him hard before he can recover.
I have memories of much greater difficulty with the old non-mega
Metagross, but that’s partly because on my first playthrough of Sapphire I had
no idea what type the damn thing was, and pre-generation VI Steel-types resist
pretty much everything (also I had a Sableye in my party because I didn’t
understand the game very well yet).
A haggling dispute with Slippery Sue’s contact at the other end of Rock Tunnel has led to bloodshed. She and Evil Steve will need to find somewhere else to offload our stolen goods. Meanwhile, Detective Doug thinks this was all a clever sting operation.
Okay peeps; it’s New Year’s Eve, I’m in Jim the Editor’s flat in sunny and tropical St. Andrews, Scotland, it’s fμ¢&ing miserable outside (because Scotland), and I am going to speed-Nuzlocke the $#!t out of Pokémon: Fire Red version, because WHAT ELSE ARE WE GOING TO DO? This post will be updated throughout the night with progress reports, screenshots and commentary, and we will either conquer the Elite Four or die trying.
