Among things that needed be done with, one was the excess of weak and unworthy pokémon.
Illumises, mienfoos, volbeats and alike, every single one of them was less than expected, they were nothing more than another pebble on the long road to power.
Another wild, sub-optimal pokémon appeared, a weakling volbeat, not a big stepping stone but we wouldn’t say no to a voluntary sacrifice.
The challenging pokémon moved fast and only improved on its speed with each passing moment, thanks to the use of the move “Double Team”. Normally this would be a solid move and drive us to a disadvantage but Trapinch was more than a match for the speed in question and dealt a single devastating blow, ending the battle… like I had foreseen, this was no more than a small, less than important pebble.
