Kleinchen
August 16th, 2009, 07:35 PM
Actually I changed my mind... I wanna go with Steel after all. Sorry! n.n; Will be updating later, probably tomorrow. This will probably be very slow going though because I'm also working on making a team on Diamond, and school starts next week and I still have several essays to write so... But I'll work on this. 8D

first update:
-Went through opening. I'm using the male character and named him "Teejerr"
-Moved into my house in Littleroot Town, talked to May, saved Prof. Birch using Mudkipz, battled May, etc.
-Caught three Wurmples on rt.101 in hopes that at least one of them will evolve into Cascoon.
-Battled through the trainers on rt.102, levelling up all three of my Wurmples to lv.7. By an amazing stroke of luck all three of them evolved into Cascoon. XD
-Discovered that my Sapphire ROM cannot save for some reason or another...RAAAGE!!

I'm obviously going to have to do this all in one sitting now... *insert serious business face here*

Quick update! C: I'm still listed as being on Flying-type but I switched to Steel, so here is my steel adventure so far :p

-Started game, got Treecko as a starter
-Did all the beginning of the game hooplah
-Went through Petalburg woods, caught a Taillow and a Shroomish
-Took on Roxanne with just my Treecko, won pretty easily
-Did the Team Magma stuff
-Sailed to Dewford
-Caught a Mawile and an Aron, nicknamed Chompy and Eisen, respectively. They both have modest natures which is bizarre and also annoying to me but since it's all in-game I guess it doesn't matter. Got tired at this point and saved so I'm still in Granite Cave. Gonna take on Brawly later, after I put all my other pokemon in the box since I don't have any particular use for them now.

do you really nead two dustoxses replace one dustox with a seviper lol

My in-game team is ultimately going to have no Dustoxes. I was happy that all three of the Wurmples I caught at the very beginning ultimately became Dustoxes, so I toted them all around until they became obsolete. :P

-arrived in Mauville city, acquired bicycle, etc.
-ventured out onto rt.117 and caught a Roselia to replace one of my Dustoxes
-trained Roselia up to match the rest of my pokemon's levels
-Fought against and own'd Wally
-cleared out all the trainers on rt.117 and rt.118. I left the cyclists on Cycling Road alone because my poison pokemon can barely scratch their steel-type magnemites. >_>
-arrived in Verdanturf Town
-killed time by blending some more berries. -_-
-ground my pokemon's levels up to 19 in preparation for a match with Wattson (I have an idea of how to do this, but it involves a lot of luck. :P)

Tough team-building decisions ahead...
I will eventually choose between Roselia and Gloom/Vileplume for my resident grass-type, but I can't decide yet. Also, between Swalot, Seviper, Weezing, and Muk, which three should be kept?

So far, my projected final team is Crobat, Seviper, Tentacruel, Vileplume, Muk, and Weezing, but some criticism is welcome...especially on how I'll ultimately get around Steven's steel-types. >_>

Short update:

-beat Wattson on my fifth attempt. His Magnemite and Magneton were hard to take down until Roselia learned Leech Seed in training. I used up all my Cheri Berries as hold items in this gym as well. >_>
-Received HM06 from the guy that gives it to you and taught it to my forgotten Mudkip

Despite having lower stats overall, I'm actually considering keeping Roselia over Vileplume now because of Leech Seed, which isn't in Gloom's movepool, and the higher speed should help slightly...we'll just wait and see. Next time, I should capture my next two party members...

Timbjerr's Poison Monotype Challenge - Hoenn Edition

Quick update:

-went north to defeat the winstrate family.
-Oddish evolved into Gloom
-Defeated most of the trainers wandering around rt.111
-entered the fiery Path to capture a Grimer and a Koffing, both of which I'm adding to my team.
-currently training Koffing and Grimer up to the levels of my other pokemon.

I've definitely decided to drop Gloom/Vileplume for Roselia. Also, I've decided that Swalot falls short of the other three pure-poison types in the game, so I'll drop him as soon as he evolves. :P

also, after some looking up of information, I discovered the Flamethrower is a TM move in this game, one that can only be won at the Mauville game corner. Weezing, Muk, and Seviper can all learn it, making dealing with Steel-types easier in the future. In addition, Seviper cna learn Earthquake. All I gotta do is somehow manage to get 8,000 coins in the game corner. :D

i could take sharpedo out

I'm thinking Walrein would be most viable for your sixth slot because STAB'd Ice attacks do a lot more damage to Drake's and Steven's pokemon than non-STAB Ice attacks. Gyrados is also a good choice for his compatibility with Fire and Ground attacks, making short work of your type's two major weaknesses. :P

Okay, I've come to the realization that there are only, like, FOUR Steel-types I can get in the game, which does not bode well for success... So, as much as I hate switching back, I think I'm gonna have to go back to my original plan of Flying-types. I'll be restarting today or tomorrow... Sorry for the inconvenience. @w@;;

Okay, I've decided that I won't do this challenge, as I am starting in Emerald with a normal runthrough. However, I don't think that you can get an electric type before Slateport, and the daedline for them is Dewford? Sorry for posting....

Timbjerr's Poison Monotype Challenge - Hoenn Edition

Update:
-traversed through the Fiery Path and cleared the following areas of trainers.
-Zubat evolved into Golbat.
-arrived in Fallarbor Town.
-continued on to rt.114 to catch the final pokemon for my team, Seviper.
-after capturing one, I immediately dropped Gulpin in the PC in favor of Seviper.
-levelled up Seviper to catch him up to the rest of the team.
-went through Meteor Falls and looped back around to the Mt. Chimney area via Rustboro City and Verdanturf Town
-Owned Archie on my third attempt. (His Mightyena is a lot stronger than I remember...)
-Travelled down the Jagged Pass, clearing it of trainers.
-Golbat evolved into Crobat. (This surprised me...I imagine its happiness would've taken a hit after having just lost to Archie twice in a row.)
-arrived in Lavaridge Town, planning on grinding a little more before taking on the gym.

Current Team:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/pkrs124.giflv.23 - Wrap/Lick/Bite/Poison Tail
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/pkrs066.giflv.23 - Poison Sting/Supersonic/Constrict/Acid

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/pkrs094.giflv.24 - Mega Drain/Growth/Poison Sting/Leech Seed

I'm disappointed Tentacool hasn't learned a single water-type attack yet. Hopefully he will in the next two levels because that would make this gym a LOT easier. >_>

Also, I'd like suggestions for humorous and/or badass nicknames for my eventual party of Crobat/Seviper/Tentacruel/Roselia/Weezing/Muk. I'm no good with making my own nicknames. XD

-Lileep family or Anorith family

So I restarted today on my Flying-type challenge. Hurray! Flying is one of my favorite types so I'm happy. C:


-Started off, got Treecko as a starter... Figuring I'd make things easy for myself and give my rival a Blaziken that will be quite easy for me to kill with Flying types. I named my Treecko Stupid... I really don't like Treecko at all :p
-Did all the beginning crap stuff, fought rival, etc.
-Went and caught a Wurmple right off the bat, as soon as I got some Pokeballs. Named it Fliege, the German word for "fly", since I'll be evolving it into a Beautifly xD
-Searched for a Wingull and caught one after maybe ten minutes. Named it Wasser, the German word for "water". (I think you can all sense this trend here... My username is German too! I love German C: ) Dumped Stupid into the PC
-Spent probably half an hour searching for a Surskit to evolve into a Masquerain, then decided it was a waste of time since as much as I like Masquerain, it IS a bit on the useless side... xD; Sorry Masquerain :C
-Grinded Fliege and Wasser to level 8. Fliege evolved into Silcoon! :D
-Saved my game and took a break to play Diamond. n.n

Will be catching a Taillow, which will probably be a big part of my team later in the game, probably tomorrow. My team-to-be will probably be something like this:

Swellow
Crobat
Altaria
Skarmory
Ninjask
Xatu/Gyarados (can't decide between the two @w@ )

-Did all the stuff in Petalburg City.
-Caught a Taillow, nicknamed her Vogel, the German word for "bird" C:
-Went through Petalburg Woods, beat the Magma Grunt quite easily with Wasser.
-Battled all the Trainers on the way to Rustboro. Trained my team to lvl 10. Fliege evolved into Beautifly! :D
-Saved in Rustboro

So right now my team is:

Sorry for lack of updates, computer problems kept me away from messing with my file, and losing to Norman three times kinda discouraged me. XD

-surfed across to Mauville City
-received Basement Key
-made it through New Mauville
-received TM24 for my efforts
-surfed across to Rt.118

You've miss-spelt Psychic and left out Dragon. Which brings me to another question: is it okay to trade a pokemon over if it isn't obtainable early-game? Such as Ghost and Dragon types.

I've already started a Normal Monotype on Emerald, so I'll report here.

I beat Roxanne with much, much difficulty. In the end I had to grind Slakoth (yes, Slakoth! Do you know how hard that thing is to raise?) to lvl. 19 so it would learn Faint Attack and evolve. She finally went down, I headed to Dewford. Winona (ie. Taillow) took care of most of the Fighting gym, Skitty having an excellent turn at the end with a nice Sing/Tail Whip/Doubleslap combo to take down his Makuhita. I've made my way to Mauville, doing all the usual Aqua stuff on the way, Zigzagoon and Whimsur have evolved, and now I'm preparing for Wattson's gym. His Magneton will be fun, considering that I don't have a single attack that hits Steel-types neutrally, and my entire team was almost wiped out by an NPC's Aron on the way to Mauville. This is gonna be almost as fun as Roxanne's gym....

Team:

Loudred (Sonic)
lvl. 21
- Supersonic
- Uproar
- Astonish
- Howl

Skitty (Genie)
lvl. 20
- Doubleslap
- Sing
- Tail Whip
- Attract

Linoone (Stardust)
lvl. 21
- Rock Smash
- Sand Attack
- Odor Sleuth
- Headbutt

Taillow (Winona)
lvl. 20
- Wing Attack
- Double-Team
- Focus Energy
- Quick Attack

Vigoroth (Dave)
lvl. 20
- Cut
- Faint Attack
- Yawn
- Slack Off

Pokemon R\S Fire Monotype
Challenge
‘The Beginning’

• Picked the Male character, and named him –Super-
• Arrived at Littleroot, and set the clock.
• Visited May, who rushed of. >_>
• Investigated someone crying for help, who turned out to be the regions Pokémon Professor, Birch. Picked Torchic and defeated the Wild Poochyena.
• Nicknamed it Kiki (don’t ask, something do with kicking, I think. :P)
• Ventured to Route 102, then arrived at Oldale town, where I received a Potion from a friendly shopkeeper.
• Arrived at Route 103, where Kiki levelled up to level 7. Fainted (surprisingly, not against May, but a Wingull. >_< Had to travel to Route 103, again, where I battled May.
• Beat her quite easily, and my Kiki rose to level 8. Stalked May to Oldale, and then went to the Lab.
• Got the Pokedex, and may kindly gave me 5 Poke Balls.
• Saved the game.
Next, I have to go to Petalburg, and then Rustboro. :P

I did this recently on ruby with steel type pokemon. I beat it while I was seriously under leveled. The cool thing is I can enter the under Lv50 Battle Tower with them. I got 14 wins in a row in the Battle Tower, but then a Wobbuffet took me down with destiny bond.

Final levels of pokemon:

Iron - Aggron - Lv49 - Female (Blizzard, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Rock Tomb)

Jaws - Mawile - Lv48 - Female (ViceGrip, Crunch, Iron Defense, Ice Beam)

Blade - Skarmory - Lv48 - Female (Aerial Ace, Fly, Metal Sound, Steel Wing)

Sparkplug - Magneton - Lv49 - No Gender (Thunderbolt, Thunder, Tri Attack, Lock-on)

Because the maker of this challenge has given it up, there is a new thread for updates here. (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=195412) Re-sign up in this thread (you don't have to restart the challenge) and post updates there.

This one gets the lock.
