No everybody starts at their own time, this isnt a race, races are for losers, everybody completes on their own time and when its completed i put them in teh hall of fame.

I still think the Powerhouse challenge includes this, but whatever, since I have too much free time anyway I might do this as well.
I will use Smoochum->Jynx, currently breeding for an Egg in Leaf Green.
(Probably it will know Teleport since the father is an Abra)



Don't know yet, I usually nickname my Pokemon when I reach Slateport / Smoochum / Evolving / Ruby

Without getting even one connection error, I have now successfully traded a modest Smoochum egg onto Ruby version - and then noticed I still have another challenge running on Ruby, almost forgot about that.

So, I will continue and hatch my Smoochum egg as soon as I finish the UU challenge.

I think I'll join this. I dunno if I can do weekly updates but I'll certainly try.

haven't decided on a nickname/Whismur/Evolving/Sapphire

Just wanted to point out, you said on the first post that we have to have our pokemon before getting to Brawly, but another rule is that you can't challenge a gym leader until you get your pokemon. You kind of have to beat Roxanne to get to Dewford, so that doesn't really make sense... :/

I certainly hope that that "smart ass" comment wasn't directed at me, considering all I did was point out a discrepancy in your rules. I seriously doubt that me trying to help you was grounds for such rudeness. :/

Today me, Brenny, and my family just moved to Hoenn. I was very delighted with the place. Littleroot Town is so peaceful. I'm glad we stayed here. My dad bought me a new clock, which isn't set to the correct time yet. I set the clock and checked my PC for a Potion. I went down to see what mom is doing. After I got down, mom asked me to come quick. I did, she was on the tv. When I got there, all I saw was a foot commercial. Mom said dad was on. My adventure on foot powder began.


Got Torchic and saved Mr. Birch's butt.

Defeated May with The-Pro.
Got the Pokedex, and 5 Pokeballs.
Got the Running Shoes.
Captured Wurmple, Poochyena, and Zigzagoon respectively.
Boxed Wurmple and Poochyena.
Saved for time being. :D

Hatched the Egg, leveled Smoochum a bit on the first route because it's physical stats (which are the only ones that matter early on) are Chansey-like. Currently in front of the Petalburg woods, and the amazing thing is: Smoochum has caught Pokerus. Too bad there's nothing around that gives Sp.A Evs....

how do you catch Pokerus? Ive had it once on a geodude which was my HM Slave cause it was crap at battling

mondays suck
January 1st, 2010, 07:17 AM
According to Bulbapedia (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pokerus), there's a low chance for wild Pokemon to have Pokerus, and the player's Pokemon can be infected with it when the wild Pokemon is fought or caught, but not if the player flees.
As soon as one of your Pokemon is infected, you can somehow spread the Pokerus in your team, but don't ask me how it works.

A brief update!

-Started the game, named myself Rin, chose Mudkip as a starter and named it Slave.
-Did all the introductory stuff, then went off and caught a Zigzagoon, also named Slave.
-Got to Rustboro, avoiding as many trainers as possible
-caught somewhere around 10 Whismurs, finally caught a Modest one, named her "Allegra". I kind of wanted a male one so I could name him Forte, but whatev :p
-grinded Allegra to level 17. Gonna go on to lvl20 before taking on Roxanne who is sure to be a bother.

I'm thinking I'm going to skip Brawly until after I at least beat Wattson.

Allegra -- Whismur - Modest - lvl 17
-Pound
-Uproar
-Astonish
-Howl

her final moveset is going to be something like Ice Beam, Flamethrower, Shockwave, and something else I haven't decided on yet.

Finished Pelipper run, so I can now focus on this here
Mind if I change the date to get rid of Pokerus (if it works)? I'm asking this because pretty much nothing gives Sp.A EVs early on, so Pokerus would be anything but beneficial for me

Update: Beat Roxanne (1 attempt), quite easily. Beat Grunt, caught 5 Zigzagoons and went to Dewford. Lost to a Fisherman with a Tentacool, did stuff again. This time Roxanne took longer to beat, stupid Rock Tomb...
Delivered package and beat Brawly with the newly learned Confusion.
Did Slateport stuff and lost to some random guy's Aron. Of course I didn't save since Brawly, so I had to to the Slateport stuff again, luckily it isn't that much. Beat trainers around Mauville, Smoochum evolved somewhere here. Beat Wattson, only took me 2 attempts and 1 paralysis berry. Saved, so it will not happen to me again.

I had last saved at Mauville, after beating Norman, getting Surf and buying TMs. Surfed east and fought my way to the weather institute. Caught a Tropius there and beat Team Magma. Got to Fortress and beat Winona. Now somewhere on the route between Fortree and Lilycove, which is according to the map called Route 120.

Renamed after the goddess of the correspondent underworld (which is unlike Hell a cold place) in norse mythology (which I am currently a fan of). I think it fits, first because of the aforementioned reason that it's a cold place, and because Hel is not exactly a beauty, and neither is Jynx.

Pokemon: Smoochum --> Jynx
Badges: 8
Game: Ruby
Location: Littleroot

As you can probably guess from above, I'm finish now.
After doing all the Team Magma stuff, things went fast. I beat the Twins with no effort (2 of my Zigzagoons leveled both from level 5 to level 9 here, I hope it doesn't matter), beat Maxie after rushing through his cave, OHKOd Groudon and beat Wallace, here the Milotic was the first Pokemon since a long time that caused me some minor troubles. After rushing through Victory Road in maybe 10 minutes, I was already standing at the gates of the Elite 4.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/ba/E_Sidney.pngDespite having a major type advantage, especially with Sharpedo which none of Jynx's moves could hit for normal damage, he was easy. 1 CM and 1 Ice Beam per Pokemon did the job.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/d/d7/E_Phoebe.pngPain, major pain. Stupid Curse...
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/00/E_Glacia.pngGlalie=set up fodder
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/3/34/E_Drake.pngJynx used Ice Beam. It's super effective.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/88/RS_Steven.pngI had some luck here. While I CM'd on Skarm, a Toxic missed and Jynx barely survived a Steel Wing. After setting up some more on Claydol because I wanted the Light Screen it set up when I healed to go down again, I swept him.

mondays suck - Poochyena / Fenrir / Evolving / Sapphire

Changed my mind, I will do Poochyena in Fire Red instead, with what resembles the Midgard Serpent most: Gyarados. That it's prevo is my favorite Pokemon is pure coincidence.

mondays suck - Magikarp / Jörmungand / Evolving / Ruby

Since Gyarados has a horrible physical movepool in this generation that gets completely walled by levitating ghosts, I will probably use a mixed set like Return, EQ, DD, Surf. Pure physical could only work with extreme Hidden Power luck, and pure Special would utterly suck.

Wow, that was a lot.

Oh, and somewhere along the way, I looked up the IV's of Granbull, it has a 31 in HP! and like 27 in Attack. But Horrible speed (like 7, and it is pretty slow), and decent other stats.

Anyways, I beat Wattson without beating the region around or doing any grinding before. How? I taught Gyarados Flamethrower with the money from Nuggets that my Pickup slaves generate.
Just took me 3 attempts to get the one flinch (King's Rock can make Dragon Rage cause flinches, how awesome is that?)I needed to beat Magneton. Actually I was just hoping for it using T-Wave or Supersonic which it had used on the attempt before, and I only lost because of really bad luck (parahax) and some Super Potions(Flamethrower did like 95%)

I just lost against Maxie in the Underwater cave, but I saved it anyways because I haven't been saving for hours. I had a on of bad luck agaisnt him, first Mightyena swaggered me and I somehow defeated it while losing many HP, then against Camerupt Gyara hurts itself once again, Camerupt uses Crit Rockslide, KO.

More Update: I'm standing at the gates of the Elite 4, but I just can't beat Phoebe, stupid Curse... Maybe I should just use my 20 Zigzagooned Rare Candys I have in my bag, but beating the Elite 4 at almost level 80 is not as awesome as around level 60... But it seems like there's no other way...

Final Update:

Damn, I never had that much trouble with the Elite 4 before in a Solo Run.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/ba/E_Sidney.pngThis guy was never too much trouble, his Mightyena's Intimidate was annoying though

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/00/E_Glacia.pngThat Walrein was a pain, stupid Sheer Cold or Blizzard crits killed me 4 or 5 times...
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/3/34/E_Drake.pngEven from such a low Special Attack stat, Ice Beam raped his entire team.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/88/RS_Steven.pngLike Glacia, he always lucked me to death. 3 or 4 times in a row, I easily handled Skarm and Claydol, had some trouble with Armaldo and Cradily, OHKOd the Aggron and got killed by a crit (well, not always, only 2 of 3 or 3 of 4 times, the other time I forgot to heal and got killed by Hyper Beam) something from Metagross. When I finally won, I had more HP than usually and he got no crit.

I would do this, despite my dislike for the Hoenn region, if only just to pass the time until SS comes out. The only problem is that I can't find my old DS and the stupid DSi doesn't play GB cartriges...

Mawile @ N/A
Level: 5
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Astonish
N/A
N/A
N/A

Not a great first move to have, as you'll see.

http://i510.photobucket.com/albums/s350/PhazonPrime/RSEMay2.png
- Too easy. Torchic could barely damage Mawile and it kept flinching.

- Mawile learned Fake Tears
- Idiotically ran into the first trainer match without realising I had no way to damage his Zigzagoon... I lost
- Wasted PP and used Struggle and Potions to beat all the trainers leading to Rustburo City
- Caught 5 Zigzagoons and got King's Rock
- Mawile learned Bite, which meant I could finally heal at a Pokemon Center
- Nearly died against a Machop, but managed to win with flinch hax
- Mawile learned Sweet Scent

http://michael.shanedelong.com/images/sprites/trainers/roxanne.gif
- Easy. Used Fake Tears and Bite to beat both Pokemon quickly and took little damage from Rock Tomb.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ King's Rock
Level: 19
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Astonish
Fake Tears
Bite
Sweet Scent

Fake Tears and Bite work well together at this stage in the game. Mawile's moves have bad coverage and this is the only reliable method I have of dealing significant damage on Dark and Steel Pokemon.

- Went to Dewford Town and through Granite Cave
- Mawile learned Vicegrip
- Machops in Dewford Gym took a lot of HP

http://michael.shanedelong.com/images/sprites/trainers/brawly.gif
- About as hard as I expected. Lost three times so I used my Pickup Rare Candies and Mawile learned Faint Attack. Lost another two times, but finally won thanks to flinch hax.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ King's Rock
Level: 26
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Astonish
Fake Tears
Faint Attack
Vicegrip

I was happy to get Vicegrip, because now I can hit Dark Pokemon for neutral damage. I wasn't sure if Faint Attack or Bite would be preferable, but I chose Faint Attack in case I come across an annoying evasion booster.

- Went to Slateport City without healing and nearly got killed by a Machop
- Trained at beach house and Trick Master's house
- Mawile learned Rock Tomb (TM)

http://i510.photobucket.com/albums/s350/PhazonPrime/RSEMay2.png
- Quite easy. Combusken's Ember did way less damage than I expected and went down with 2 Rock Tombs.

- Mawile tried to learn Baton Pass, but I didn't want it
- Got Mach Bike, beat all available trainers and got Macho Brace

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/9/9f/Wally_game.PNG
- Faint Attack OHKO.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/8d/SpriteWattson.png
- All Mawile's moves are resisted by Magnemite and Magneton and I got confused twice, but all moves landed anyway. I leveled before Magneton and learned Crunch, which did a lot of damage after Fake Tears.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ Macho Brace
Level: 36
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Rock Tomb
Fake Tears
Crunch
Vicegrip

Even though Crunch is drawing off Mawile's 55 base S.Atk, it still does decent damage. Especially when used with Fake Tears, which I am only keeping for Steel Pokemon. Rock Tomb and Macho Brace are purely to give Mawile a better chance against Flannery.

- Mawile learned Strength (HM)
- Battled all trainers between Mauville City and Fallarbor Town
- Mawile learned Iron Defence
- Continued battling until I returned to Rustburo City
- Rock Tomb missed twice allowing Numel to get crit Ember and Magnitude 10

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f6/MagmaBossMaxie.png
- Mightyena's Intimidate stopped Strength from OHKOing any of Maxie's Pokemon, but neither Mightyena or Golbat did any damage and Camerupt's Ember did much less than I expected.

http://michael.shanedelong.com/images/sprites/trainers/flannery.gif
- I was contemplating using my Pickup Rare Candies before this battle, but I decided to see how well I did before I used them. Both Slugmas were OHKOd by Rock Tomb and Torkoal 2HKOd. Torkoal used Overheat which almost OHKOd me, but Flannery didn't even attempt to heal when Torkoal was on low HP.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ Macho Brace
Level: 46
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Rock Tomb
Iron Defence
Crunch
Strength

Fake Tears is not as useful as it was early on, so Iron Defence took its place. Strength has a higher base strength than Vicegrip and seems to OHKO anything that doesn't resist it.

- Mawile tried to learn Stockpile, but I didn't want it
- Mawile tried to learn Spit Up, but I didn't want it
- Mawile tried to learn Swallow, but I didn't want it
- Got the Gogoggles and trained in the desert
- Revisited the Trick Master's house

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/41/SpriteNorman.png
- Norman was a joke. I resist all of his Pokemon's moves except Focus Punch, which is awful with Traunt and I had Iron Defence just incase.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ BlackGlasses
Level: 48
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Rock Tomb
Iron Defence
Crunch
Strength

Mawile's EVs maxed so I replaced Macho Brace with BlackGlasses to make up for it's low S.Atk on Crunch.

- Got Surf and battled all ocean Trainers from Routes 105-109
- Trained at the Abandoned Ship and New Mauville where I was constantly being paralyzed
- Mawile learned Ice Beam (TM)
- Crit Mach Punch from Breloom took significant HP and almost killed Mawile
- Worked my way up to the Weather Institute
- Beat Team Magma easily and left Castform

http://i510.photobucket.com/albums/s350/PhazonPrime/RSEMay2.png
- Strength OHKOd all three of May's Pokemon.

- Continued on to Fortree City
- Parafusion-hax prevented Mawile from attacking for 4 consecutive turns
- Got Devon Scope and battled some trainers

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/41/SpriteWinona.png
- Ice Beam OHKOd all of Winona's Pokemon except Pelipper with a crit on Skarmory.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ BlackGlasses
Level: 60
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Ice Beam
Iron Defence
Crunch
Strength

I taught Mawile Ice Beam for 2 reasons. Winona was the first one. I could have used Rock Tomb to take care of her Pokemon, but I wasn't happy about the 80 accuracy. I also had my doubts that Rock Tomb could even 2HKO Skarmory.

- Battled all the trainers on the way to Lilycove

http://i510.photobucket.com/albums/s350/PhazonPrime/RSEMay2.png
- As per usual I OHKOd all of May's Pokemon.

- Trained at Mt. Pyre
- Zigzagoon evolved through doubles matches
- Trained at Magma Hideout
- Beat all trainers on routes 124 and 125

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/1/1c/SpriteTateandLiza.png
- I wasn't sure about this gym. Obviously my Pickup/HM slaves wouldn't be any help here and I could only attack one at a time. I OHKOd Solrock with Crunch first to avoid Fire Blast. Suprisingly Lunatone survived a Crunch and got a Hyper Potion to help it last for 3 turns, which it wasted by only targetting my Zigzagoons.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ BlackGlasses
Level: 70
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Ice Beam
Iron Defence
Crunch
Strength

No changes from last time other than a higher level. This set has been working well for me.

- Got Super Rod and caught a Sharpedo
- Trained on route 126, route 127 and Seafloor Cavern.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f6/MagmaBossMaxie.png
- Mightyena was a bit of a nuisance. Intimidate kept me from OHKOing and Swagger caused Mawile to hit itself in confusion twice. Once Mawile snapped out of confusion, sweeping with Strength was easy.

- Trained on routes 128-134 and the Trick Master's house
- Caught Wingull and flew to Sootopolis City
- 2HKOd Groudon with Ice Beam and lost a lot of HP from Fire Blast

- Wallace was harder than I expected. All of his Pokemon, save for Luvdisc, were 2HKOd and chipped away at my HP with Water Pulse. Luckily Mawile wasn't confused and I won without a whole lot of trouble.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ BlackGlasses
Level: 78
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Ice Beam
Iron Defence
Crunch
Strength

Once again, nothing changed other than the level. I haven't been able to find any good items for Mawile to hold and by this point in the game, I doubt I will find one.

- Trained in Victory Road
- Used my Pickup Rare Candies on Mawile

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/9/9f/Wally_game.PNG
- OHKOd all of Wally's Pokemon except Magneton who used Supersonic, but Mawile didn't hit itself in confusion at all.

- Deposited my HM slaves

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/ba/E_Sidney.png
- Mightyena's Intimidate kept Strength from OHKOing Mightyena and Shiftry, but they both failed to do much damage.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/d/d7/E_Phoebe.png
- Crunch OHKOd four of Phoebe's Pokemon. Sableye was 2HKOd, but Shadow Ball did little damage.

- Mawile learned Brick Break (TM)

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/00/E_Glacia.png
- Brick Break OHKOd all of Glacia's Pokemon.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/3/34/E_Drake.png
- Drake is the main reason I taught Mawile Ice Beam. OHKOd all of his Pokemon.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/88/RS_Steven.png
- I knew I couldn't OHKO Skarmory, but it used Spikes and I 2HKOd with Ice Beam. I 3HKOd Metagross with Brick Break, but Metagross could have also 3HKOd Mawile with Earthquake. Luckily, Steven didn't use a Full Restore. If he did, Metagross would have cost me the battle. His other four Pokemon were OHKOd with Ice Beam or Brick Break.

http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Mawile.gif
Mawile @ BlackGlasses
Level: 100
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Ice Beam
Iron Defence
Brick Break
Strength

The only reason I kept Iron Defence was for Steven's Metagross, but I forgot to actually use it, which was a stupid move, because a crit from Metagross would have cost me the battle. I taught Mawile Brick Break after Phoebe so I could use Crunch on her Ghost Pokemon. I kept BlackGlasses on Mawile even after it forgot Crunch, simply because I didn't have any helpful items to make it hold.

Mawile was an interesting Pokemon to use in a solo run, because I've never really showed any interest in it before. Its movepool sucks, even with TMs. It can't learn a Steel move outside of Iron Defence so it gets no STAB at all. Its stats are also pretty bad, but my Pickup slaves were very generous with Rare Candies, which meant I could KO most threats simply by being over-levelled. Overall, the run was pretty fun and I'll probably do another one if I can.

Finished!

I just finished my Mawile run and I'm looking to start another one. Spoink / Spoink / Evolving / Ruby.

EDIT:

Spoink Only Evolved Run

- Got Spoink

http://www.bmoviecomic.com/board/images/smiles/SpoinkNormalSprite.gif
Spoink @ N/A
Level: 5
Nature: Timid
Ability: Thick Fat
Splash
N/A
N/A
N/A

Good and bad. Good because of the Timid nature. Bad because of Splash, which I honestly didn't know about.

- "Lost" to the level 2 Poochyena
- Got the 12 available Potions
- Wasted PP on wild Wurmple and healed with Potions

http://i510.photobucket.com/albums/s350/PhazonPrime/RSEMay.png
Struggled and healed with Potions. Not too hard.

- Beat available trainers and avoided trainers with Poochyenas
- Spoink learned Psywave (Level 7)
- Caught 5 Zigzagoons
- Spoink learned Oder Slueth (Level 10)
- Ran out of Psywave PP during a battle and had to waste 80 turns to Struggle
- Almost lost to a Nincada with Leech Life and a Shroomish with Stun Spore and Absorb
- Spoink learned Psybeam (Level 16)

http://michael.shanedelong.com/images/sprites/trainers/roxanne.gif
I expected this battle to be annoying, but I learned Psybeam just in time. 2HKOd both of Roxanne's Pokemon with 1 crit on Nosepass.

http://www.bmoviecomic.com/board/images/smiles/SpoinkNormalSprite.gif
Spoink @ Cheri Berry
Level: 17
Splash
Psywave
Oder Slueth
Psybeam

Training with Psywave was annoying. 15 PP, 80 accuracy and set damage with an annoying effect. Thankfully Spoink learned Psybeam before I challenged Roxanne; otherwise the battle would have been much more difficult.

- Wasted PP on Magikarps so Spoink could Struggle the Magma Grunt's Poochyena
- Spoink learned Psych Up (Level 19)
- Spoink learned Flash (HM05)

http://michael.shanedelong.com/images/sprites/trainers/brawly.gif
As easy as it gets. OHKOd both of Brawly's Pokemon with Psybeam.

http://www.bmoviecomic.com/board/images/smiles/SpoinkNormalSprite.gif
Spoink @ Cheri Berry
Level: 21
Psych Up
Psywave
Flash
Psybeam

I don't see Flash or Psych Up being useful in this run, but the PP on both moves is so much lower than Splash and Oder Slueth, so if I have to waste PP for a dark Pokemon again it'll take no where near as long as it used to.

- Trained at the Beach House and the Trick Master's house
- Spoink learned Thief (TM48)
- Spoink learned Confuse Ray (Level 25)

http://i510.photobucket.com/albums/s350/PhazonPrime/RSEMay.png
No problem here. 1HKOd Combusken and 2HKOd Wailmer and Shroomish with Psybeam. May wasted the turns she had with Splash and Stun Spore, which was healed by Cheri Berry.

- Got Acro Bike and beat all available trainers
- Stopped Spoink from learning Mirror Coat (Level 28)
- Spoink evolved into Grumpig (Level 32)

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/9/9f/Wally_game.PNG
OHKOd Ralts with Thief.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/8d/SpriteWattson.png
Wattson took two attempts. Magnemite and Voltorb weren't a problem, but I could only 3HKO his Magneton and I had bad luck with paralysis and confusion. On the second attempt I had better luck with paralysis, didn't get confused and got a crit with Psybeam.

http://www.bmoviecomic.com/board/images/smiles/GrumpigNormalSprite.gif
Grumpig @ N/A
Level: 34
Confuse Ray
Thief
Flash
Psybeam

Since Grumpig knows Thief, which was the only none-Psychic attack available at the time, I don't need Flash any more. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with it for a while now. Confuse Ray probably won't be helpful, since Grumpig will be OHKOing most Pokemon from now on.

- Grumpig learned Shock Wave (TM34)
- Beat trainers leading up to Team Magma
- Grumpig learned Psychic (Level 37)

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f6/MagmaBossMaxie.png
Sand Attack and Confuse Ray from Mightyena and Golbat respectively made hitting Camerupt difficult. I was very suprised that Golbat outsped Grumpig.

- Stopped Grumpig from learning Rest (Level 42)
- Stopped Grumpig from learning Snore (Level 42)

http://michael.shanedelong.com/images/sprites/trainers/flannery.gif
Torkoal just barely survived Psychic and used Attract to keep Grumpig from attacking while Flannery healed with Hyper Potion and paralyzed with Body Slam. Many turns and Hyper Potions later, I managed to land 2 Psychics.

http://www.bmoviecomic.com/board/images/smiles/GrumpigNormalSprite.gif
Spoink @ Macho Brace
Level: 44
Shock Wave
Thief
Flash
Psychic

Shock Wave has made beating common trainers much easier and quicker. Rest won't be useful in this run, so obviously neither will Snore.

- Got Gogoggles and trained in the Desert

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/41/SpriteNorman.png
Didn't quite OHKO either Slaking. The first one put Grumpig to sleep and healed a couple of times. Vigoroth's Slash got a crit and took half of Grumpig's HP. Traunt kept either Slaking from being a huge problem, although by the end Grumpig's HP was pretty low.

http://www.bmoviecomic.com/board/images/smiles/GrumpigNormalSprite.gif
Grumpig @ Macho Brace
Level: 48
Shock Wave
Thief
Flash
Psychic

No changes from last time, but last time was about 20 minutes ago, so...

Majikarp... Lol really any not fully evolved poke would be difficult I think. Not sure about the hardest though.

Christopher

I have a rom and plan using an advance starter to change my starter into my solo I was thinking maybe wormple,poochyena or surskit
Magikarp would be a death sentance until it evolved
