I finally came across this Legendary Pokémon as I worked to stopped Team Flare from accomplishing their questionable goals. I was tempted to use my only Master Ball I had, but I opted against that thought and instead drained Xerneas down into the red and proceeded to capture it with a Great Poké Ball. I am extremely excited I have finally come across the poster face of Pokémon X, been waiting for this encounter since I bought the game. Now that I have it, one of my other Pokémon which I am quite fond of has to be sidelined =( – ended up sidelining my Blaziken for now.
Up to six gym badges now; Bug, Cliff, Rumble, Plant, Voltage and Fairy badges. The Plant gym was quite straight forward with my main Pokémon being a fire type (Delphox). The Voltage and Fairy type gyms were also quite simple as my Pokémon were 12+ levels higher than the Pokémon I faced at the gym – ah the rewards of fighting 95% of the battles I come across =P. Beyond the Pokémon gym battles, the other main story element being driven currently is Team Flare and their unrevealed goal.
