Due to unforeseen circumstances, I've been unable to play these past two weeks (Damn you, Dynasty Warriors and friends!). Rest assured I will finish the team building and take on Stadium 2 over the Christmas break! For great justice!
By the way, I tried the Gym Leader castle, and Zapdos destroyed the first gym hands down. I'm thinking I'll take the team to the Tower Cups, in particular Prime Cup when I'm done training. Hooray!
