Oh mah gawdy this took SO LONG! Since Radical is an old timey villian I thought I'd do his parts of the battle as an old black and white movie, complete with terrible effects. Not sure how well I pulled it off, which is a shame since it was actually MORE effort to do it in black and white than it would have been to do it in colour.
This fight gets the award for 'most horrid colour palette'. Good thing it's mostly in black and white after all.
Ah well. The first elite four battle is meant to be pretty quick and stupid. Really, what was Aaron going to do against a very powerful flying pokemon and an earthquake weilding rock type that is immune to type advantage?
If you're wondering what the asterisks everywhere mean, they signify a super effective attack, but I sort of lost the plot with that whole thing.
So far so good I guess!
But yeah, in my first Platinum runthrough (no Nuzlocke), I got a fairly tough battle out of Aaron. I only use three Pokemon per walkthrough because I'm not skilled enough to use 6. So I had Curtis the Torterra, King Macro the Garchomp, and Blaster the Magmortar. For some reason, not all of that was enough to easily crush this guy. But that was nothing compared to Bertha's Gliscor alone.
oh yeah XD
heh the Pokestar studios were a long way off when I did this CX
1. Many insects in real life can light up, which repels darkness.
2. Many dark type attacks rely on trickery and deception, but bugs are too damn stupid to be tricked.
