2 / 3 completed yesterday, and Umbreon brought home the win against Ghastly and Gengar today with 3 / 3 Heavy Metal meditation sessions.

 

I will be posting Week 4 shortly!

Week 4 has been a long time coming.  I trust that the prior three trainers have prepared you for this moment...

Like last week's showdown against Agatha and her paired Gengar and Ghastly, the final trainer of the Elite Four has brought two Pokemon to the arena... but with an exciting twist.  Your one Pokemon was powerful enough to handle two ghosts, but not the combined might of two Dragon-type Pokemon!

 

Combine your final (Week 4) Pokemon with another of your previous champions to tackle Lance's Dragonite and Garados!  That's right, you have two goals to accomplish this week.  Summon your best Pokemon to tackle this amazing challenge!

 

Week 4 features an intriguing twist.  ;)

Growlithe didn't fair well last week, the elusive bodyweight WOD goal remains out of reach so far.

 

This week Yeti chooses cubone (two different graded bouldering problems) and brings back zapdos (four post-work meditation sessions).

So mostly. I failed following up on my goals here, mostly I'm glad I got to a place where my whole challenge didn't fall apart.

 

But I did finish the one battle I sat out to fight: I handed in the signup paperwork for becoming a trainer. With spring break I might have to wait a little for it to get approved, but whatever...

 

So essentially all the pokemon from 2-4th week walked right over me, but I did get that cloyster in the end...

Umbreon and Gogoat have taken me through 2 / 3 Heavy Metal Meditation sessions and one day of Primal Movement this week. 

 

A few more days to finish off the mini challenge strong-like!

Calling it now; Lance whooped me. Poor Xatu was too tired to continue fighting and although Blaziken wanted to give it her all I appeared to be suffering from confusion and we were steam rolled.
