My pokemon have been defeated in battle!!! The second gym leader and her awful, awful plant pokemon with all their poisoning and paralyzing... My fire monkey just needed one more hit and he would have won. But no, she has to go all magical leaf on me.
Of course, it didn't help that the gym trainers all had much higher level pokemon than I did. I guess it's back to the tall grass for me.
ETA: Screw the tall grass! I just walked right back into the gym and my fire monkey burned right through all her stupid plant pokemon all by himself!
