124. [Video]

[Time for a nice view of the snowy rooftops of Blackthorn!]

[Heather's out on an upper-floor balcony somewhere-- probably a training gym judging by the fact that she's in some kind of dorky jogging suit and wearing a towel over her shoulder rather than her normal getup. Her breath steams in the air in front of her as she rubs her hands together to warm them up.]


HEEEEY, ladies and gents.

So I'm, uh, here getting ready to battle Claire in a few days, and--

[A slightly pudgy, pebbled blue arm pops into the frame from off-camera, tugging insistently at Heather's sleeve.]

--I know, relax, dude. I'm gettin' to it.

Yeah, so we're pretty worn out, but uh... if anyone's got any tips on beating Dragon-types, feel free to lay 'em on me. Already know about the Ice weakness, so don't worry, we got that covered.

[There's a honky croak, and then her Croconaw's face shoves in from the right, chuffing impatiently and anxiously all at once. Heather leans away, planting a hand on his nose to stop it from knocking the 'Gear right over.]

OKAY, okay!

Sheesh!

So Zilla here filmed some of our workout and wants-- I don't know, what do you want? Advice? Okay. Advice. So I'm gonna attach the video here, and like... I dunno, let him know how he's doing? He's kinda worried that he's not ready to take Claire on, but he's been training, like, super hard, so I personally think he's gonna be fine-- [Godzilla lets out another indignant honk and nearly bowls Heather over in an attempt to cover her mouth-- somehow despite being a coldblooded reptile, he seems to be blushing furiously.]

[Heather leans away again, laughing.]


OKAY! Holy shit, dude, I'm not trying to embarrass you, I'm just bein' honest!

ANYWAY.

Just, if anybody wants to watch the video and reassure this bonehead that he's doing fine, go for it. Save me from the endless late nights spent with him shoving battle tutorials from StarYoutube in my face.

Dragon types generally seem to have high attack and special stats, so watch your defenses. Fairy type Pokemon are very good against them both defensively and offensively. Steel resists dragon type moves, though fairy types are completely immune. Don't discount the fact that they have moves of other types, too - though I've never faced her and couldn't tell you what to expect on that end.

Dragon types are also weak against other dragon types, so if you have something that can learn those types of moves that isn't a dragon type, that might be helpful.

It probably wouldn't hurt. I doubt you'd be able to train one up in time for that match... depending on what sort of Pokemon she has, though, the ice might cover it. You might want to buy something to increase defense if your Pokemon don't have good defense.

It looks like he's doing just fine, to me. He shouldn't have much problem at all after training so hard.

[IT'S OKAY HEATHER, ZILLA IS MORE IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW.]

More than fine. Any Pokemon who has trained that hard will do great, I'm sure! And even if something happened, it isn't like you couldn't try again...right?

Such determination is to be admired.

Then I am sure such hard work will pay off. Though to be certain, I would suggest attempting to immobilize your foes as well.

[Oh no that was PRECIOUS!]

With a training regimen like that, Zilla's sure to win! Just make sure he's got some good Ice-type attacks to use.

That's good! Ice Beam would be good to have too, but that's a TM...

Hmm...if you have any Fairy-types they'll help a lot, they're pretty much a Dragon's achilles' heel. And be ready for any type of move, Dragon-types tend to be really versatile on that front. Good defenses and status moves will be really helpful, anything you can do to get her team off-kilter.

[And a small round of applause from the gear.]

That was SENSATIONAL! I'm sure you'll do absolutely wonderfully against the gym leader.

[Says the girl who doesn't have any badges yet, shhh.]

...Though if I could offer one SMALL critique, it would also help to practice the techniques and tactics you plan to use in battle. That's JUST as important as your physical power!

[Okay, a blushing Pokémon is just too cute. Penny giggles just a bit before continuing.]

Absolutely! There's no substitute for testing your strength like a strong opponent or partner.

...Well that's just the toughest damn lizard I've ever seen.

Other than Ice-types, I'd say use dragons and fairies if you got 'em. If not, try fallin' back on sleep or poison, that kinda thing.

He's not going to have any trouble at all, at this rate.

Looks like you've already gotten a lot of advice, but I'm gonna back up the status moves. At this level, it really pays to be a little sneaky instead of only charging in head on.
