HeartGold – A New Adventure!

Man, I need to come up with a more original title for when I start new games…

Anyway, I bought HeartGold about two hours ago and I’m already in love with it (as much as you can be “in love” with a video game). The new PokeDex layout, the new Pokemon stats pages… gah, too much for me to gawk over. But those things are beside the point; I’m here to give you an update on my adventure so far.

I decided to pick (who else) Cyndaquil to begin my adventure. But after leveling it up to 9 I decided to trade a level 1 Totodile and a level 1 Chikorita from my Diamond game and they’re all around level 10 now. Here’s an update on their stats

Cyndaquil

Level 12

Nature – Naive (+Speed/-Special Attack)

HP – 33

Attack – 18

Defense – 16

Special Attack – 20

Special Defense – 18

Speed – 26

Totodile

Level 10

Nature – Timid (+Speed/-Attack)

HP – 32

Attack – 17

Defense – 20

Special Attack – 15

Special Defense – 16

Speed – 16

Chikorita

Level 10

Nature – Lax (+Defense/-Special Defense)

HP – 29

Attack – 16

Defense – 22

Special Attack – 15

Special Defense – 17

Speed – 14

So there’s all my good Pokemon so far! I traded a Bellsprout to a kid in Violet City for an Onix named Rocky (very clever, son).  Right now I’m in Sprout Tower…

…getting ready to take on the guys at the top of the tower. After I Ember my way through the Sea of Bellsprouts I’ll go to battle Falkner at the Violet City Gym.

LeafGreen – 1:26 – Boulder Badge

Brock

Brock

I did it! I defeated Brock.

I trained my Charmander up to level 14, and, luckily, that was all I needed. Geodude only used defense-based attacks, so I was pretty much free for an all-out offensive. Onix on the other hand trapped me in a Bind, but that was it. The one time he used his devastating Rock Tomb attack, it missed. I only lost thirteen hit points on my way to my first gym badge.

LeafGreen – 1:09 – Pewter Gym

Pewter Gym

Well, I’ve reached Pewter, and that means I’ve reached the Pewter Gym. Unfortunately, neither my level 13 Charmander or my level 11 Pidgey are strong enough to beat Brock’s Geodude and Onix at levels 12 and 14, respectively. Which means it’s back down to Viridian Forest to train up.
