Pokèmon Platinum, Part 3

I got the sixth gym badge which means I can now use Strength outside of battle. I also got a new egg, but it didn’t hatch yet. I also got a Pichu as a fourth team member. I’m trying to raise his friendship in order for him to evolve in Pikachu. I don’t want to train it until he evolves, so he’s pretty much useless right now. I also caught a Tropius in order to use him as a HM slave. He can learn most of the HM moves, but since 4 is the limit, I’m also using a BIbarel for the same thing.
