I've spent a lot of time playing since my last update, but it was mainly just a bunch of miscellaneous smallish things. Really I was trying to hold off making another entry until I had caught that
Pokemon, but I don't know if it's going to happen anytime soon so I'm moving on.
At this point, Omega and his team have beaten the Pokemon League seven times. The first few rematches were to get the rest of the starters (Snivy and Turtwig), and after that I just wanted experience and money. Ultra Balls ain't cheap when you need to buy them in bulk. Cygnus, my Mega Altaria, is well beyond the rest of the team--she reached Level 100 a while ago, while most everyone else is around the high eighties. Mega Metagross is 95 since they've been the one catching all the Legendaries (and anything else), and man are they great at that! For this, I grant Cygnus the title of "Early Bird", and Mega Metagross the title of "Subduer of Legends". I also made it so that each Pokemon on my team has knocked out at least one of Steven's Pokemon, getting them all the Champion Slayer title.
I tried out the Battle Resort, but I don't really have the patience to do everything to get to Wally's rematch. I've also done some Mega Stone hunting so that, between Omega Ruby, X, and Y, I have at least one copy of every single Mega Stone! I might not use all of them, but I want to have the option. I love Mega Evolution. A lot.
Right, the legendaries! Well, as of now I have caught every legendary Pokemon available in Omega Ruby except
for Cresselia. I even bought another year of Pokemon Bank so that I could bring some necessary Pokemon over to catch the trio masters. As I said, Mega Metagross handled all of these, barring Giratina who is immune to Hold Back. Originally I wasn't even going to try catching Giratina, but then I decided to just go for it, and the team of Gadunka, Falzar, and Armstrong was able to weaken and stall until I could catch the ghostly dragon! They have all been given the title "Braver of Distortion" for this achievement. I was also lucky enough to get the Eon Ticket, thank God, so if you visit the desolate cornfield known as Ohio keep your StreetPass on.
I've been soaring around trying to get Crescent Isle, but it hasn't appeared yet. Still, I've been able to catch a lot of Pokemon on the Mirage Spots that have appeared, and I've finally caught all the Pokemon who appear as flocks of birds while soaring (took FOREVER to get Murkrow, I was beginning to think it was Alpha Sapphire exclusive). So now I'm just checking in each day, running my lotto numbers, investigating whatever Mirage Spot shows up, and just enjoying my bird's eye view of Hoenn. I've been considering trying to catch Spiritomb since you can easily trigger its appearance in a legendary-like fashion, but I've already trained one, and Hold Back won't work, so...I dunno. Maybe if I get lucky in the lotto and get a Master Ball.
I wanted to do profiles for the other starters and the legendaries I've caught, but...that's a lot. Eh, it doesn't really matter at this point. Omega Ruby is so much fun though you should definitely buy it if you're on the fence.
