So I thought it wouldn’t be enough to see the Pokèmon world in person without reliving it alongside in my Game Boy Pocket. As a result I’ve been playing Pokèmon Red during the down time spent on the various trains needed to make this trip a success. But this trip is about sharing the experience, so I share with you all now, my gym battle with Brock.
As a side note, I’ve been playing with a few self imposed rules. Somewhat of a corruption of the Nuzlocke playstyle, I only capture the first Pokèmon found in an area and if one faints I cannot use it. However I like my Pokèmon too much so if I defeat a main character in battle I get to bring one back from the dead. Also I like to face the Gym Leaders with the same number of Pokèmon i.e. 2-on-2, 3-on-3 etc. There’s a bit more challenge that way. Anyway without further ado here is my battle with Brock.
