Tips for doing a pre-Mr. Dragon run of the Pit of 100 trials?

#1PT_PiranhaPosted 9/2/2010 7:04:42 PM
Gonna try to do the Pit of 100 Trials before my second encounter with Mr. Dragon (since it's impossible before the first). Any battle strategies, badge set-ups, partners to use, or items to take would be appreciated.

I think you should have Item Hog and Heart Finder from Dazzle before the fight. Heart Finder in case 1 of your partner dies, and Item Hog for extra healing items.

I have an idea, but it's a dangerous quest. There's a badge called the "Pre-Mr. Dragon Run of the Pit of 100 Trials Badge". It's behind bars in Bowser's Castle. What you do is circle around the Bowser Statue counterclockwise 3 times, drive the course backwards, use the Mushrooms to go up the stairs, circle around the Bowser Statue clockwise 3 times, then come back and the bars will rise.

To think I was the one to start the Mr, Dragon fad...

Anyway, just grind. A LOT.

Try using Broque Monsieur to get lots of Shark badges and hope you get lucky.

@Emoglobin
I kind of thought we both did... I gave you the idea anyway.

I don't think you'll be qualified to actually beating the Pre-hooktail run if you grind before it though.

Actually, I was the first one to post about him. It was when someone asked how to get across the bridge, and I said you needed to beat Mr. Dragon first.

I will give you credit for making it popular and spreading it around though.

This is not a pre-hooktail run. It's a Pre-MR. DRAGON run.
