my memory is hazy to bare with me because i was like 4 or something, anyways as a kid I was playing pokemon red and I was the person who only trained their starter pokemon and everyone else on my team existed to revive my blastoise. I was stupid and only taught him water moves, I also ignored trainer battles when possible so my blastoise wasnt all that strong, during the fight with the rival right before i had to go into the elite 4 my blastoise was KO'd no revives and all i had was an oddish against my rivals venusaur, and for reasons I couldn't understand venusaur couldn't land a single hit on me, and so i just kept attacking with my lvl 13 oddish... I won... that oddish is now a lvl 100 vileplume sitting somewhere in my red file to this day
The moment I painstakingly EV trained for the first time and raised that Pokemon, a Sawsbuck, to level 100. It may not be much, but Artemis almost became like a friend to me. Fighting that last fateful Piloswine just felt so epic and as if I had accomplished something.
