My Pokémon X Journey: Day 2, Part 2 (WARNING – SPOILERS AHEAD)

And so, because I committed myself to doing these up for everyday, before I begin playing again, here is Part 2 of Day 2…

Calem in Camphrier Town

I entered Camphrier Town, a relatively small town compared to the blooming city north-east of it, once famous for the long-neglected manor home of a noble family. Still, it had its breath-taking visuals here and there. I met up with Shauna as we decided to check out the manor, but quickly learned about some kind of trouble going on as two men rushed past, headed to Route 7. Following them to the Rivière Walk, we quickly found the source of the trouble: A Snorlax, taking a nap on a bridge. Unfortunately, while one of the two men owned a Poké Flute, an item that could wake any sleeping Pokémon, he’d lent it out to the owner of the Parfum Palace…which meant it was up to Shauna and I to go get it. And here I was hoping to rest for the day in Camphrier.

Before heading into the palace, which was admittedly AMAZING looking, I decided to explore Route 6 a bit, also known as Palais Lane. While there, I engaged a Poké Fan Family in a Double Battle with their pair of Furfrou. The two Poodle Pokémon were surprisingly powerful, requiring me to use nearly my entire team to beat them, something I wasn’t prepared for at all. By the end, I emerged victorious, and my Abra evolved into Kadabra…albeit a level late, because it had levelled up twice in the battle, meaning it missed out on learning Confusion. Undeterred, I went around catching new Pokémon: An Oddish and a Honedge, the latter I named Gail. I also found an Ultra Ball, a very powerful Poké Ball, and stowed it away in my bag, knowing I’d need it later. Satisfied, I headed back up to the Parfum Palace to try to find the Poké Flute…after paying Pokémon Dollar1000 just to get through the gate. I had to agree with Shauna at that point: THIS is how the rich get richer.

Entering the palace, we quickly learned the owner was having issues of his own: His Furfrou had taken off somewhere in the palace, and was missing. Shauna felt bad, since she knew how she’d feel if it was her Pokémon were missing, so we decided to look for it…while also ransacking the palace and courtyard of hidden treasures. Hey, it was a palace courtyard. They’re always filled with loot. Besides, there was an HM 01, which teaches Cut. That’s a must for travelling Trainers. Anyway, we eventually found and cornered the Furfrou, and the owner decided to thank us with a fireworks display on the ledge, which was admittedly quite spectacular. Shauna said something about this being the first time she’d been to something like this alone with a boy, and…yeah, that was when it became ever so clear to me that the owner had set me up on a date. I wanted to strangle the man, but…well, I guess it wasn’t so bad. And hey, he did give back the Poké Flute, and his butler had a little information on Mega Evolution.

Before returning to the bridge, I made a couple of switch-ups on my team, knowing that a Snorlax, even a low levelled one, would attack any strangers that forcibly wake it up, and could be tricky to capture. As such, once it was woken up and went into a rage, I opened with Vivillon’s Stun Spore, paralysing the oversized Normal-type, and then sent out Gail, who let loose again and again with Fury Cutter until Snorlax was weak enough to capture with the Ultra Ball I had found on Route 6. The owner swung by afterwards, making a VERY lame attempt to patch things up with the wielder of the Poké Flute, but I was far more interested in what lay across the bridge from me: A Pokémon Day Care.

Calem and Serena challenge Tierno and Trevor

I was soon joined by Tierno and Trevor, who checked out the Day Care facilities with me, after which we went back to looking for Pokémon. Eventually, we met up with Serena, who teamed with me to take on Tierno and Trevor in a Double Battle. We managed to defeat the two, albeit in a much closer battle than my previous one with Tierno, after which I searched Routes 6 and 7 for some more Pokémon. After catching an Espurr, Nincada, and Sentret, and evolving my Flabébé into a Floette, I started to feel fatigue set in HARD, and headed back to the Pokémon Centre. However, before I went to bed, I made contact over the Player Search System with a boy named Merill, who offered to trade Pokémon to evolve my Kadabra into an Alakazam and then sending it back to me, thus filling our PokéDexes a bit more, and leaving me with an Alakazam…that can still only use Teleport. Still, a LONG day was complete, and I headed to bed feeling satisfied and desperate for sleep.

…And that was Day 2. Hope you enjoyed, and hopefully, today’s won’t require two parts…Actually, knowing my luck, it’ll need three. lol Ja né!
