Balanced Blue Randomizer Run: OHGADWRRRRRRRY

Sold 6 Super Potions. Sold 11 POKe BALLs. Withdrew Max Ether x2. Withdrew Ether x2. Withdrew Elixir x1.

Have 28:44 on the clock, 41 Pokemon in Pokedex.

After spending spree, have Max Potion x40 and Full Restore x50.

Time to tango.

This is a run meant to fail. I'll reload and go train a bit once it does.

But until then? Time to have fun.

Lorelei carries Seaking L54, Vaporeon L53, Electabuzz L54, Ponyta L56, and Gyarados L56.
STATUS takes care of Seaking, HORSEMAN of Vaporeon. AVENGER OHKOes the Electabuzz. HORSEMAN disposes of Ponyta, and then we're on the ace.
And who better than the one even Yulong might fear - CRITDEMON. Putting it to sleep (twice), it wails away with Psychic, managing a 3HKO while my heart pounds furiously.

Everyone's undamaged except for HORSEMAN. I use one Max Potion to change that 76 HP to 158, and go on.

Current Party: STATUS L44 Nidoking, HORSEMAN L48 Blastoise, BIO L43 Pidgeot, FITZBLACK L44 Charizard, AVENGER L44 Marowak,  CRITDEMON L45 Alakazam

The next one won't be a laughingstock. This randomizer has undoubtedly repaired his shoddy lineup and given any player something to fear.
Bruno carries Omanyte L53, Kabuto L55, Graveler L55, Porygon L56, and Pidgeot L58.
STATUS leads and dispatches Omanyte with two Bonemerangs. HORSEMAN 2HKOs Kabuto with a Surf and a Tri Attack, then wipes out Graveler with another Surf. FITZBLACK gets some EXP with the Porygon, 3HKOing it with Flamethrower. CRITDEMON comes in to dispatch Pidgeot, freezing it solid with the first Ice Beam and following up with a Psychic. (HAVE I MENTIONED PSYCHICS ARE OVERPOWERED IN GEN 1)

Agatha carries Aerodactyl L56, Dragonair L56, Clefable L55, Gloom L58, and Lapras L60.
Aerodactyl hits STATUS with Peck before being put under with Spore. She switches to Dragonair, and STATUS slowly wears it down with Acid after outspeeding it and hitting with Spore. When Aerodactyl reemerges, HORSEMAN greets it with a Surf to the face. Clefable meets with a hasty Spore, because I refuse to repeat the Erika incident under any circumstances, and FITZBLACK 2HKOes Gloom, speaking of Grass-types. The fearsome Lapras is hypnotized... twice... three times... four... if we include misses... and faints to four Psychics.

Current Party: STATUS L45 Nidoking, HORSEMAN L49 Blastoise, BIO L43 Pidgeot, FITZBLACK L45 Charizard, AVENGER L44 Marowak,  CRITDEMON L46 Alakazam

STATUS is wounded by that Peck and a stray Mega Punch from Clefable, and stands at 60/142; I throw a Max Potion at it.
FITZBLACK has 90/136 HP and is poisoned; a Full Restore gives it what it needs.
HORSEMAN is dented, lacking only 157/161 HP, but doesn't need healing yet.
CRITDEMON took a Bubblebeam and Psychic to the teeth, leaving it with 64/119 HP; a Max Potion it is.

Lance carries Jolteon L58, Jynx L56, Ponyta L56, Raichu L60, and Alakazam L62.
A critical Mega Kick from Jolteon gives me a heart attack as STATUS's HP goes down and down, but stops at 40/142. I use a Max Potion once Jolteon is under Spore, then send Jolteon on an Acid trip it won't soon forget. (...And then I realize it was weak to Bonemerang. *facepalm*) FITZBLACK pulls off a critical to send Jynx to the floor (SERIOUSLY?), and HORSEMAN answers Ponyta with Surf. Raichu Explodes...

AND KILLS AVENGER.

Alakazam... KILLS CRITDEMON with a Ice Beam followed by a Double Edge (WTH? Alakazam has decent offense?!), but cannot crash thrugh Horseman's defenses, and the vengeful Blastoise takes it out with Tri Attacks.

Well, I'm rather screwed, aren't I?

Horseman, now L49, is healed from 63 to 161 with a Max Potion.

Rival carries Dodrio L61, Omastar L59, Charizard L61, Zapdos L61, Moltres L63, and Victreebel L65.
Dodrio dies to an Acid trip. Omastar just won't die, and ends up using several of HORSEMAN's Surf PP while I Max Potion in response to Rival's Full Restore. HORSEMAN 2HKOes Charizard, and -

Zapdos? Just great.

STATUS comes out, and takes a... Bubble from the Bird (WTH?) and Acids it down... and, after it wakes, STATUS proceeds to take THREE CRITICAL BUBBLES IN A ROW from Zapdos. ...What, just what. After running out of Acid PP, Status Clamps it to death.

I then get a notification that Moltres comes next... JEEZ, Rival, I KNOW I caught Articuno, but does that mean you had to grab the other two Legendary Birds just to upstage me?!

HORSEMAN promptly loses a third of its HP to Mega Drain (WHAT), and I'm forced to use the Elixir to restore my Surf PP. It's eventually a 4HKO (with two critical hits! SOMETIMES, the RNG works in your favor), and that wretched thing at last drops. Next is Victreebel.

Sorry to not use you, BIO, but FITZBLACK is better at hitting this thing where it hurts. ...After some consideration, I do decide to switch to BIO just for old time's sake. Starter against starter! That's how it ought to be!

FITZBLACK's two Flamethrowers and BIO's Drill Peck dispatch it, and...

...

...wait.

This stupidly underleveled run WON?

With two deaths, yes, and lots of restoratives, but - IT WON?

...
