Emerald's Battle Frontier Extravaganza!

Everyone knows that Emerald's Battle Frontier is one of the most challenging aspects of Emerald. I have decided to create a challenge for Emerald for the Battle Frontier, just to see how hard it is.

RULES
To enter the challenge:
- You can be at any point in the game, as long as you haven't competed in any Frontier venues yet.
- You can choose 4 pokemon from the list below. You can use any 4 Pokemon, even if they have been claimed. However, you can't have the same 4 Pokemon combination as another person has.
- Using the 4 Pokemon, you must get all Silver and Gold symbols from the frontier. The only exception to this Rule is the Battle Factory.
- Your challenge ends when you have received all of the symbols.
-Breeding, Trading, and TM abusage are recommended, but hacking and glitches are not allowed.
- When you sign up, post your name and the 4 Pokemon you wish to use in the following format:

Name: Costa
Pokemon: Metagross, Milotic, Regice, Starmie

- You must post a log at least once a week, or you will be booted from the challenge.
- Signups close on February 9th. The challenge has an infinite time to complete.
- The person who gets all Symbols in the fastest amount of game time wins the challenge.
- If anyone can make a banner for the victory prize for this challenge, I would greatly appreciate it.
- The Pokemon below have been chosen for being extraordinary in the Battle Frontier. Don't complain if you don't see Pikachu or Numel on there, because they wouldn't survive in the Frontier anyways.
- If you mis-EV train a pokemon, or you decide change its moves and EVs based on the Frontier, feel free too, as long as you log it here. Oh, and losses don't affect your challenge status as well.
-To calculate your game time, record the time that you began your first Frontier challenge, and the time that you won your final Symbol. Subtract the two times to get an overall time.

True, but I feel as if Pikachu is outclassed by Raichu, and glass cannons don't do so well in the Frontier imo.

When you get to the Battle Frontier, you are required to post logs. Before that, its optional.


I responded to you all in bold. My current log? Well, I'm currently trying to breed an Adamant Beldum, and growing berries for Feebas to evolve.

If you had just beaten the E4, why did you restart? 0.0 The rules say that as long as you haven't challenged any place in the Fronteir, you're fine. 0.0

I'll post my log as I have just defeated Juan and currently training for the Elite For.


Right now I'm training my Donphan to level fifty which won't be very hard. Donphan takes alot of experience points after a battle (I got seven hundred for just defeating a level twenty-five Tentacool). I should finish Donphan, or get close to it, by the end of Victory Road. When that happens I plan on training Blaziken and Gyarados. I should finish this all by today. If I finish all this, I'll go and catch an Ampharos and a Quagsire. When I do that, I'll rebreed my requested Pokemon to get some egg moves and such. Then I'll start EVing training which shouldn't take long (maybe two Pokemon a day if I try hard enough).

Well, I need to post my log. Currently, I'm still in the process of breeding and hunting for Feebas. I have gone and caught a couple of more Dittos, although none have the 30-31 Attack IV that I want for Metagross...

I normally only use 3 Pokemans for the Frontier but I'll pick my fourth from what I do in the Factory. :D

Currently, I'm in between EV-training my three Pokemon and tearing the Factory apart.

I'm going to use a lot of Rentals so I'll see which ones I like. :D

(Thanks, btw)

Oh, and I lost my streak in the Factory, so :\
Now I'm on 1, swept the whole poor girl's team with Kingdra.

Time for another update!

- I have been attempting to catch a Calm Regice for the Battle Fronteir with no success so far. I got an Adamant one with great Defensive IVs @_@ but it would ruin BoltBeaming, so I resetted.
