Day 1193

It was another nice day in the life of Melvin. He woke up and had a delicious cup of coffee.  He checked the forecast and it showed it was partly cloudy with a 40% chance of rain.

“I really hope it does not rain today.” Said Melvin.  He was not a fan of the rain.

He drove to the office.  Traffic was light and there were no jams.

He made it to the office safely.  “Good morning Melvin.” Said the receptionist.

“Good morning Gladdis.” Said Melvin.

Melvin sat down at his computer.  He opened an email from the CEO. It read:

Great news everyone!  The company stock has gone up!  As part of our efforts with profit sharing expect to receive an additional $200 to your next paycheck.  Keep up the good work!

Sincerely,

Bob Wentworth

“Wow, this is great!” Exclaimed Melvin.  Just like three weeks ago (he thought).

Melvin continued working for a while.  He walked over to the water cooler.

“Hey, how is it going guys?”

“Oh hey Melvin. We were just talking about the game last night!”

“Oh ya!  Who you guys pulling for these days?”

“We all pull for the Jets!”

“Yeah and they won last night!”

“It was great!  It was looking like they were going to lose and they threw a touchdown pass right near the end and it clinched the game.”

“It was huge!”

“Yeah man.  Back-to-back games now.  Same thing happened last week!  Not exactly the same but they did score that touchdown right at the end.”

“That was great too!”

“So what else is going on with you guys?”

“Probably gonna check out The Squad tonight.”

“Oh yeah, I heard they have a new episode.”

“Yeah I hope they can defeat Brainmaster.  He is tough!”

“Yeah it could be one of their toughest battles yet!”

Melvin got back to work.  They had free brownies in the break room!   They had nuts and no nuts.  Melvin liked brownies so he was a happy camper.

He got through work and headed home.

But his car got a flat tire and he had to pull over.  “Oh crap!” said Melvin.  He went on his Guyco insurance App.  He put in a request for roadside maintenance.    Expected time until arrival was “2 minutes.”   Only two minutes? (Thought Melvin.)

The helpful man appeared in only one minute and 50 seconds.  He got out of the car.  “Hello Melvin!”

“Hello sir!  Wow, you guys got here fast!”

“Absolutely.  You can’t get anywhere on a flat tire!”

The man put on Melvin’s back up tire.  “You should be good to go now Melvin.  Make sure you take that tire to the mechanic and get it fixed.  You hit a nail!”   He got in his truck and drove off.

Wow.  That was so fast.  (Thought Melvin)

He drove home.

Melvin arrived home and his wife was happy to see him.

“Hey honey!  Welcome home.  I made lasagna for you. Your favorite.”  She smiled.

“Awesome!”

“How did things go today?”

“Well I got a flat tire on the way home.”

“Oh no!  That is dreadful!”

“Yeah but the roadside assistance came really fast.  Only 2 minutes!”

“That is good to hear.   Glad they could help you out.”

They ate the lasagna happily.

After dinner and clean up they went to their living room.  His wife spoke up, “Do you want to watch the new episode of The Squad tonight?”

“Yeah sure why not?”

It was a harrowing episode.  The Brainmaster was a android with plans of universe domination.  He had captured Ultraman as well as Amazing Girl.   They were being tortured and he was planning to kill them soon.

Melvin’s wife watched through her fingers.  “Oh no!”

But just as it was about to be too late for Ultraman, that was when the Quickster showed up!  He came in at lightspeed and was able to defeat the Brainmaster and save his comrades.

“Woo!   That was a close one!”  Said Melvin’s wife.  She was relieved.

“I really wasn’t too worried.” Said Melvin.  “The good guys always win in The Squad.”

Pokemon Red Weak Team (Completed) (Chansey, Poliwrath, BeeDrill)

My challenge has been completed. On June 2nd I was able to defeat the Elite four and my rival (named Blue). It was my PIGEOT that dealt the final blow to his level 65 Venusaur.

My team before I made the attempt was:

LEVEL 62 GYRADOS

LEVEL 42 POLIWRATH

LEVEL 37 CHANSEY

LEVEL 51 PIDGEOT

LEVEL 37 OMANYTE

LEVEL 28 BEE DRILL

 

(I think it was a guy online or maybe on Quora who suggested this weak team).  Nobody on my team knew how to use: Earthquake, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Blizzard, or any Psychic moves.  Also no TRI ATTACK and NO  rock slide.   My team really did not have that much HITTING POWER.

My main pokemon were the GYRADOS and the PIDGEOT! They were able to deal damage.  Once I evolved my Poliwhirl into POLIWRATH then he became more useful as well.    BEE DRILL was kind of useless most of the game.  And Chansey really is not that great.

I used GYRADOS to beat most of the Elite Four.  it knew Hyper Beam which I upped to 7 PP.     Lorelei has a tricky team if you don’t have  a good electric pokemon, she was a tough first hurdle.   Fighting Bruno was pretty easy, just need water moves and flying moves.

Agatha was tough because her team used lots of CONFUSING moves so that was annoying.  LUCKILY, in this game only NORMAL type moves don’t hit ghosts, so I could still use fighting type moves and flying type moves and bug moves to hit them.  So I actually did use BEE DRILL and Chansey and Pidgeot to beat her team.

LANCE was super easy, I used my Poliwrath on his dragons and they would not attack they only wanted to use AGILITY.   And then his D R A G O N I T E was easy to kill I could use Poliwrath and BEE DRILL.  (THE AI in Gen 1 is pretty stupid in general).

and my rival was not that difficult.  I was able to one shot his ALAKAZAM by having my Gryados use BITE. so that was great.

HONESTLY, the first one, Lorelei, was the toughest because they had good stats and I did not have any super effective moves to hit with.

It was a grind for sure but I am glad I could complete the challenge (which I placed on myself).

I hope the good people of the world will continue to enjoy playing pokemon, especially Gen 1 and Gen 2 games (they are my favorites).

Pokemon Red Update (Weak Team) (Elite Four)

Saturday June 1st

I have made one attempt at the Elite four.  I was not able to get past Agatha.  My main pokemon were Gyrados and PIGEOT.   my team is too weak.

I have gone back and tried to level them more.  I will try again soon.

My victory is 100% based on Gyrados.   Luckily, it does know Hyper Beam.

Not having any electric moves definitely slows things down.  And I don’t have Ice or Psychic.  Moves like Ice Beam and Psybeam really crush many of the Elite four.

I am going to try again soon.

I am hoping that my Poliwrath will become more useful.    I only have so much patience to GRIND and raise the level of the weak pokemon.  Also, BEE DRILL is still pretty useless.
