I beat the first round of Elite Four about 5 more times. I'm milking it for EXP and cash before beating the last gym in Kanto, and therefore unlocking the second(more difficult) round of Elite Four. Since I'm using it to level my team up, it gets easier every time. Pretty soon I'll go finish off that last gym so that I have all of the badges in the game, and then it's off to try my luck with the improved Elite Four... and to see if I can effectively steal their Leftovers and Black Sludge items.
Koga of the Elite4 has a Pokemon with each of those items in the second round, and both of them have the Sticky Hold ability in order to "prevent" you from stealing these rare items. I want to try the Gastro Acid move on them to nullify their Sticky Hold ability, so that I can steal their stoof. No idea if this will be successful. There's also the move where you change their ability to Insomnia(inability to fall asleep) which might work too. I just need to get rid of their blasted Sticky Hold ;)
I've also started EV training my Suicune. I gave it the Pokerus! ^_^ take that, water-bending beast
