Smuddy (Level 29) @ lolitems
Current Stats: 64 / 57 / 62 / 55
- Horn Attack
- Double Kick
Performing pretty well so far, though I'm pretty sure that his attack DV is trash-tier. Having a hard time getting the OHKOs I need with Thrash.
The Story so Far
"I like shorts! And beating you up!" Great. Is everybody here out to murder me and my partner?
"I don't even remember what I say anymore but I'm going to fight you!" Right, you do that. Go ahead and die to a tidal wave of Horn Attacks like all those before you. Though at least you've allowed my SMUDDY to evolve into a Nidorino.
Entering a giant mountain, I've decided that I'll just go for it. One step... two steps...
"Zubat!" Screw this, running.
Right, let's try this again. One step, two... three...
"Geo! Geodude!" Urgh. That was fast.
Welp, take three. Step, step, step, step, step,
"Zubat!" WHAT THE ACTUALLY BLEEPING DARN NINTETAILSING MEWS ON HIGH I AM SO SICK OF THIS
And thus I continued through the mountain, dispatching a few other battle-minded sociopaths and fleeing from pretty much every encounter I had every five steps or so. I picked up a Moon Stone at one point. May as well, I thought, then stabbed my Nidorino with a rock, causing it to become extremely powerful. It started thrashing about within a battle or two as well, which seemed to be an effective way of dealing with all of my problems in life.
"Hey kid, want a nugget?" Er, right, I just got into town and explored a bit north but... uh... I guess I'll give it a shot if he's handing out gold... "THEN FIGHT ME *****"
Jesus, I swear everybody in this Mew-damn world wants to fight me. Well, after finding out it was a recruiting scam, I went off to help some terrible failure of a scientist regain his body (of course, there were a few more sociopaths in the way) then went back to town.
Misty was rather pathetic. All it took was Smuddy thrashing about for three turns. She handed me a TM, which I used to torture Smuddy into learning how to blow bubbles out of his mouth.
That's all for now!
Fun Fact of the Day
I mentioned DVs earlier, so I suppose I'll explain that. People who are a bit better-informed on modern-day Pokemon know that there are things called EVs and IVs that determine stat growth. A Pokemon has inherent IVs from 0-31, then uses EVs to determine additional growth. Well, it was slightly different in Gen I. In Gen I there were instead DVs as a counterpart to IVs to determine stat growth. These ranged from 0-15. It is extremely rare to find a Pokemon with a perfect 15 DV in the wild, and literally impossible to find a Pokemon in the wild with 15 DVs on everything. I mentioned that my Nidoking didn't seem to have a very good DV in Attack as stat growth is very predictable in Gen I and thus I was able to check how much damage I was doing on certain enemies to dtermine that it was not enough. My guess would be somewhere between 3 and 6 as that DV.
That's all for now! As usual, let me know if you knew this already!
