Agreed, but I don't have Photoshop anymore so I can't do it...

Hmm, well maybe Zappyspiker would do it? He makes banners though, so idk.

Uhm ask around Graphics?

OOOH BOY! Why I decided to get Blizzard on Cereal AFTER Radio Tower?!
Imbaplume would die so easily!


Radio Tower beaten because of little leveling and LUCK. Larvitar came in with serious face of... PUPITAR,go go EVOLUTION!
Got some fancy feather,Director told me something about nice Kimono Girls and Bell Tower.. Didn't listen to him tho,was too hyped about my Corsola "Cereal" which just rocks.
Go go Ice Tunnel! Every trainer towards it is soo easy. Water-types are going down thanks to Cereal!
Ice Tunnel,there I come! Grabbed Waterfall... I can't teach it to Corsola?! Oooh boy..
Blackthorn City... Wow,the last gym!
I AM IN THE HEAT OF TROUBLE...
Blizzard chilled me. And some random dragon trainers whose could only cry about their Dragon-type pokemon which are now.. CHILLED TO THE BONE!
O hai thar Clair,wanna dance with me? Nah? D:
Wasn't too easy but-but... CEREAL SAVES THE DAY WOO~!
Cereal is the best. Seriously.
Dragon Den,there I come!

I'd actually be more than willing to make a few userbars, provided I have some information like what exactly you want the Userbar to say, and what Pokemon, if any, should I use for each type. I've already created my own personal Normal-type Userbar, so I'm not opposed to doing other types.

.EJ
May 7th, 2010, 02:01 PM
Alright, Arcelio and I will discuss this userbar business via VM/PM.

Do you guys have any suggestions as to what the featured pokemon will be?

A few. For the Electric-type bar, I would use Pikachu (or Pichu), Flaffy, and then Magnezone. For the Normal-type, I would use Ratatta, Furret, then Togekiss. Basically, it would go, First Step, Second Evolution, Third Evolution. Obviously, the Pokemon would vary from bar to bar, and for Fire/Grass/Water, they would feature the Starter Pokemon from HG/SS.

Still grinding... 4/5 of my guys are at level ~50... I'm getting sick of this grinding business. Well, as I said quite a while ago, I'm only going to update on weekdays, so see everyone on Monday. :P

And, oooh, userbars. I wouldn't mind one. Once I become the Fighting Champion, that is.

a) Your font is really hard to read lol
b) Just an idea, for the Ground type userbar, how about Diglett, Quagsire, Golem?

.EJ

Alright, we'll talk about it tomorrow then. I'm kinda busy tonight.

Yeah, I know my font is hard to read. I use it because I want to squeeze as much text into a small amount of space as possible. As for the Ground-type Userbar, I was actually thinking Swinub, Pupitar, and then Flygon. I think I'll substitute Flygon for Golem though, since it's rather difficult to get a Trapinch in HG/SS (pre-Kanto at least).

.EJ
May 7th, 2010, 03:36 PM
^I liked the idea of first stage, then 2nd evolution, and then final stage.

You should have kept ice shard on it....you'll be OHKO lots of dragons with a mamoswine like that.

And yeah, Mamoswine has the 2nd strongest Earthquake in all the games (non uber).

I plan on keeping Ice Shard lol, it's helping me destroy Claire.

Oh wow, I'll defiantly evolve it then!

UPDATE:
-Currently battling Claire, thought I'd elaborate on the battle.

Round One: Nidoking vs. Gyarados
- Gyara Intimidates, that's ok wasn't planning on using Nido for much anyway
- Lay down two layers of Toxic Spikes (I LOVE THAT MOVE) while Gyara attacks with Dragon Rage, I attack with Horn Attack which does almost nothing before Nido faints

Round Two: Golem vs. Gyara
- Send out Golem, Rock Throw once, get down to red health, Claire Hyper Potions
- Gyara Dragon Rage's again, I Rock Throw twice, knocking out Gyara
- Claire sends out Kingdra, I switch in for Quagsire

Round Three: Quagsire vs. Kingdra
- Kingdra is poisoned, I start Amnesia'ing
- He starts Dragon Pulsing me, it does nothing
- I start hitting it with Surf, I get a Crit and he dies of Poison
- Claire sends in Dragonair #1, I send in Piloswine

Round Four: Piloswine vs. Dragonair #1
- Dragonair gets Poisoned
- I Ice Shard (which always goes first) and get down to right above yellow health
- Dragonair Dragon Pulses, gets me down to half
- Dragonair takes poison
- I Ice Shard again, Dragonair #1 faints
- Claire sends in Dragonair #2, I keep out Piloswine

Round Five: Piloswine vs. Dragonair #2
- Dragonair #2 is poisoned
- I Ice Shard, get down to yellow health (about half)
- She Dragon Pulses, I faint, send in Quagsire
- She takes poison

Round Six: Quagsire vs. Dragonair #2
- She Dragon Pulses, doesn't do anything
- I EQ, Dragonair #2 faints

I HAVE ALL EIGHT BADGES NOWWWW!

Onto the Johto Leau- wait! That idiot didn't give me a badge. Oh jeez, to the Dragon Den........

Team is all the same, just a couple level ups.

May 7th, 2010, 04:35 PM
jeez i need to update more. also, i like the userbar idea.

Went through union cave. needless to say, it sucked. I ran into like 5 onixs in 2 minutes. that's probably a record. I wish people would stop calling me. Hooray for Azalea Town! Who's that old Dude? oh well. wait, he's Kurt? damn that means....
In the slowpoke well. Batty learned Bite! destryed some people, then this leader guy. blah blah blah blah blah..... next time i'll do the gym.

Arcelio
May 7th, 2010, 05:44 PM
Just figured I'd post a sample of the Userbars. This one is for the Normal-type Challenge.

Tell me what you guys think. I personally think the text looks a bit too pushed together.

TotoPacMan
May 7th, 2010, 06:37 PM
maybe a bit squished, but otherwise really cool.
thought i'd do one more update before bed. and I have a question, should i get a dratini here at Goldenrod or wait for the extremespeed dratini later?

alright, so i beat bugsy after i got Batty to Lv.17 (i love early wing attack). the metapod and kakuna were pitiful. Why make Bugs so bad? WHYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!?! (i still love my bugs) also, while fighting trainers after Ilex forest, Da king the Pidgey evolved into Pidgeotto. All hail the Da King!!!! Long live the king!!! i know, bad jokes, but i've been wanting to do that since i named him. also, renamed Flyboy. i didn't really like Da King as a name. Renamed my Hoothoot Hooters after i lost a bet (screw my friends). Batty's wing attack pretty much kills anything it comes in contact with.

Batty/Zubat Lv.18

First off though, is it ok, since fighting types are so scarce at the beginning, if i import two eggs? (which would be Riolu and Shroomish) If not then i will only import Riolu.

I think .EJ will allow two eggs, since you don't get a Fighting-type Pokemon for a while. He's the final say on this though, but I think that it'll be okay.

.EJ
May 7th, 2010, 09:54 PM
Arcelio's correct. I'll allow two eggs for your "starters"

I'll go ahead and add you.

Come to think of it, I should have considered doing that early on....poor toxic potato was stuck with poliwag for a while lol.

I'm coming back in with the Water type. :)



Started game, picked Male character, named Pisces.
Got assaulted by a little blue creature as soon as I left my home. It's true what they say, the streets really aren't safe anymore.
Entered Elm's lab, picked a Totodile, named NomNomNom.
Suffered through Elm's lecture on how to use the Pokemon Healy Thingy.
A suspicious looking man gave me some drugs before I could leave. Apparently I have to use them on my Pokemon if they are in danger. Great.
The blue thing was waiting for me! Good thing it's mistress called it off at the last second.
Some random girl won't let me leave. It's a free country! You can't do this!
Got the Pokegear from Mum, and told her not to save my money. She's a chronic shopper.
Now Elm won't let me go! Apparently I need his phone number!
OH MY GOD A RAT! KILL IT TOTODILE KILL IT
This Route's so scary! I can barely walk five meters without being attacked by something. Eep!

Oh sorry arcelio, I was half-asleep when I posted last time.

It does look better and more spacious. I like it.

Well kurumi that's just a silly rule, but I would prefer that you keep it at two. I'll give you another shot since you didn't know.

And I'll go ahead and add mudkiprush.

Hey .EJ,can I level up pokemon just to breed it?
I want my Rhyhorn to know Thunder Fang,but easiest way around is to get Arbok instead of waiting for my Pupitar to evolve into Tyranitar...
I think getting a pokemon and leveling it using exp share isn't using it,right?

May 8th, 2010, 09:47 AM
Alright, Well I got SS started and going.


Im startled awake in the middle of the night. Someones in my room...
Its an old guy, in a yellowish gold jacket.. i ask him why hes here, and he starts rambling about the wonderful world of pokemon.. (Wait dont i live here?!)
He shows me a Marill.. the blue round rat stares at me.. with those beady black eyes.. *shudder*
He puts away the Marill. Phew.. Then he asks me my gender.... ok.. old man is really creeping me out.
I tell him im a boy (and that i know karate)
and he asks my name, i tell him Jing. He nods and then says "Jing, your about to experience the world of pokemon, and have a "fun" adventure"
Man i could hear the sarcasm in his words when he said fun...
I get up, wondering how he got in my room. Isnt my mother down... OH SHI-
I run downstairs fearing for my mothers safety.
Shes ok, strangely she doesnt comment about the strange man. Thanks mom.. glad to know you care.
She shoves my bag and trainer card to me (also rambles about "saving" and "options") Cant get me out of your hair fast enough huh?
I walk outside feeling upset, my days not starting off so well... Oh well lets hope it will not get any worse...
OH HELL IT’S A MARILL! ITS GOING TO SUCK OUT MY SOUL!
Luckily, before the Marill could do its evil deed, its owner, my "friend" walks out and it runs away spinning, and they run to their house.
I walk to Elms lab, mom said something about him needing a favor. Great i get to play errand boy.
Outside I see a red headed kid staring into Elm’s lab. I walk over to talk to him, and he says something about Prof. Elm and then looks at me. Then he yells at me and kicks me away. I already can tell I wont like that stalker-ish idiot..
I head into Elms lab, who knows what that guy does to those pokemon in there *shudders*
Elm greets me with a hardy Hello, and before I can even respond he goes off on a rant about poke balls and walking with pokemon, so then he wants to give me one of these animals, for no reason. Hey the day is looking up.
Oh, spoke too soon, before I can get my pokemon and get the hell out of there, he gets an email from a friend named” Mr.Pokemon” (20 bucks says he was made fun of in high school)
Great, now my “free” pokemon isn’t so free anymore, he wants me to go alone, at night, with wild blood thirsty animals running around, with a pokemon I have not even got yet, to his friends house…has this “professor” forgotten I AM TEN!?
I pick Totodile, and name him Hmslave1, he glares at me when i call him that.
I head back home to get my Pokegear, mom shows me how to use the phone..thanks mom
I head to Cherrygrove City, met by a creepy, old, pedophile-esque man, he takes me on a tour of the city for no reason. Then shows me his house, then pawns off his "Runnin Shoes" on me. Uhm..i need special shoes to run..
Suddenly...i miss my bedroom, the world outside scares me :pink_blankstare:
I head north out of Cherrygrove, old man gives me a map card. Why does everyone think im stupid? Mom thinks i cant answer the phone, Elm thinks i cant do a simple errand without a bloodthirsty Crocodile following me, eating poor pidgey as i walk. and now the old man thinks i need special shoes to run, and a map so i dont get lost...
Frustrated, i run north through all the grass to Mr.Pokemons house.
I enter, and who i suspect to be "Mr.Pokemon" drags me to a chair, and gets an egg and hands it to me, is this an errand or am i picking up Elms breakfast?
OH SH-
The creepy man from my bedroom, oak or whatever, hes here.. stand still Jing.. if he comes near you, let Totodile have him.. you can make your escape then.
The old man compliments my Totodile...
Got a Pokedex, i run out, and get a call from Elm, he sounds frantic. Probably left his Bacon on too long and now its burned.
I run back to Cherrygrove, and almost leave town heading towards New Bark Town. When suddenly, the red-headed a**hat walks up. Says something about me being pitiful, then challenges me to a battle. Atleast hes not hitting me..
He..sends out a Chikorita... omfg a Chikorita.
My day has officially been made. I beat that little Chikorita senseless and then he runs away, i swipe his trainer card to see his name. Its Silver..
I get to Elms lab, and walk in, a police officer says a pokemon was stolen... then blames me. -.-
Lyra "Proves" my innocence.
I talk to mom, and then head back to Cherrygrove. I import two Eggs from an old friend, and then I walk around town a bit, wondering why my life sucks so much. When one of my Eggs hatch (it had been moving around since i got it)
OH MY GOD ITS A MUSHROOM!...Wait no its a Shroomish.
The other Egg is still an Egg, so i go to the pokecenter, and heal up, then i head north to train my new Shroomish.

Well thats where i am at the moment. :P

Hey for some reason my SoulSilver patched ROM wont go past the intro on No$GBA and Nintendo DS emulator :/
Same happens for HeartGold so I don't know how I can play.
Sorry I can't do the challenge :/

EDIT: Downloaded DeSmuME and it now works :)
Keep me in the challenge xD

EDIT 2: Actaully take me off the list, DeSmuME is rubbish :P The movements and fps is painstakingly slow :/ Would take like 6 times as long to do anything :(

May 8th, 2010, 11:20 AM
Wolfechu,DeSmuME crashes less and has STATES. It speed ups the saving process (tho You'll need to save manually sometimes because game will glitch... It'll happen like 30m - 1h

EDIT1: To play on No$GBA You need to put some AR code and enable it EVERY TIME You load the game (idk why it works like that)

I had a similar problem like that with a Platinum ROM on No$gba, when i muted it, i loaded up the ROM, and got to the title screen, then when i clicked to go into the game, it froze, until i turned back on the sound and heard Giratinas cry, then it worked fine (but i gave up using ROMS cause they suck on my computer, so i just use my Retail games (which is fine, i own Diamond/Platinum/HG/SS so it doesnt affect me) :P Turn on the sound, it should work then.

First Update, and its very short :P

Player Name: Wolfe

So I decided to go for cyndaquil for the obvious reason that my rival would be water, and as you know water doesn't really hold up against electric types :)

Got to Mr. Pokémons house. Hey Prof. Oak :D

(Oh and I would have screenies but it's far too much hassle for NO$GBA xD)

Stopped before I run into my rival.

Stopped it there cause I need a rest. Been on the pc for a while now xD
I promise my next update will be much more interesting and laid out :) Plus longer xD

May 8th, 2010, 04:40 PM
I lied.

Update - Day 8

Finally got all my guys to at least level 50, and beat Lt Surge with ease. Getting a Ralts ASAP, since I want 6 party members. However, getting it to level 50... Eh... Not to mention finding the Dawn Stone (?) to evolve it into Gallade.

OH NO. I forgot, a Psychic Gym... D: IIRC, Bug is SE against Psychic, so Steves Megahorn should do the trick.

...Wow. Muscle took a Psychic from Sabrinas Alakazam and lived. No wai... Not to mention Muscle destroyed Mr. Mime with Revenge - of all moves - after a Light Screen by Mr. Mime, so yeah, that's pretty cool.

Sorry, but I think I overlevelled. I one-hit every single Pokemon of hers, minus Mr Mime, since I used a turn to heal Steve and attack with Fire Blast, which was stupid. But Steve also took a Psychic from Alakazam, and returned an OHKO with Megahorn. 10 badges down, 6 more to go!

Oh, before I forget:
Steve the Heracross - Level 55
Megahorn
Close Combat
Shadow Claw
Aerial Ace

Pory the Poliwhirl - Level 52
Blizzard
DynamicPunch
Earthquake
Surf

Aaron the Primeape - Level 50
Cross Chop
Thunder
Iron Tail
Thrash

Kento the Hitmonlee - Level 54
Blaze Kick
Mega Kick
Close Combat
Hi Jump Kick

Muscle the Machamp - Level 54
Cross Chop
Revenge
Vital Throw
Fire Blast

And sooner or later, I'll have Sai (Psy. :P) the Gallade, once I figure out where to get a Ralts, and where to get a Dawn Stone (?) to evolve it.

I have Thunder on Aaron, among various normally effective moves for Misty, my entire team for Brock, and Pory for Blaine and Gary. (As I dubbed him, since his original name was unacceptable by me. :l) Almost done, then I'll take a few days off, then maybe start a Mono-Steel playthrough.

Oh, and I will be fighting Red. :l Overlevelled, of course. Way overlevelled, that is. I plan on getting my entire team to about 90 before the fight, to ensure complete decimation. Er... to make sure I win, I mean.

Took a couple hour break, and grinded the guys to level ~ 60, back to the game! I might actually be able to get all the badges by the end of Sunday/tomorrow/whatever. ARGH. Lost my grinding because I forgot to save. How does someone forget to save? :l Oh well.

Almost there! 2 more badges!

One. More. Badge. :D

Doing a bit of grinding before the final Gym Leader. Will see everyone tomorrow, I'm tired. :V

Added!

You're gonna bring in an eevee egg?
Yes i did~

Now for my progress report #1
(Friday, May 7th)

I started the game and did all the stuff that has to be done before i could catch and trade pokemon. So as soon as i got to Cherrygrove i went straight to the union room to get the egg. So after alot of mindless running around the egg hatches into a Docile natured Eevee! I named him Eifi!

With that i went straight into the grassy areas to train the little guy. After a few close calls in it's earlier levels, i leveled him up to level 14. Then i was concernened about leveling him up because he hadn't evolved, and i'd have to do it by the next level if i wanted him to learn a psycic-type move, Otherwise i'd have to wait until level 36 for him to learn psybeam! So i take a few minutes to do some mindless running around to increase his happiness. After 25 minutes of running around, i set off through Routes 30 and 31 to battle trainers and make my way to Violet city! After various battles, i defeat Bug Catcher Wade and reach level 15. And thankfully Eifi evolves into Espeon and learns Confusion!

So to end the day i reached Violet City!

(Saturday, May 8th)
To test my newly evolved espeon's confusion attack, i head straight for sprout tower. It was really easy! 1-hit KO'd everyone in the building and recieved TM70! I wasted no time teaching Eifi (Espeon) to use it!

After a quick visit to the Pokemon Center, I went straight to the gym. I swept through the gym trainers and challenged Falkner. Knocked his Pidgey out with the first hit, Pidgeotto was a little more difficult, It two hits! So i won the badge and got TM51. I'm going to save it for when i catch a Natu!

So i made my way through Route 32 and avoided all the trainer battles. I didn't want to overlevel Eifi (Espeon), otherwise i would have had a hard time catching Pokemon. I also wanted to save the trainer battles for when i catch slowpoke! After Route 32 i made my way straight through Union Cave, i avoided all trainers except for the Pokemaniac with the Slowpoke. It was quite tricky due to ineffective typing, but i still won~

So i ran through Route 33 and saw a Team Rocket grunt chasing a man away from Slowpoke Well. After the little scene i went to Azelea to heal my Eifi! Afterwards i went to Kurt's so he'd get the Team Rocket grunt out the way. So i went to Slowpoke Well to battle Team Rocket and drive them away so i could catch a slowpoke. Good thing that they mainly use Poison-types, It made it so much easier!~ So after Driving Team Rocket away, Kurt took me back to Azelea and gave me a Fast Ball. So i gave him a Grn Apricorn to turn into a Friend Ball. And speaking of Balls, i went to the pokemart to get some Net Balls to help with my next objective.

So i swiftly headed to Slowpoke Well to serch for my next pokemon! After many Zubats i finally found a Slowpoke! I Tried a Tackle attack thinking it would do alot of damage, But i underestimated Slowpoke's defense so it didn't do much damage. So after a few attcks and a few capture attempts, i finally caught him! I named him Tamaki!

So i spent the rest of the day training My newly caught Slowpoke!

(Sunday, May 9th)
I've spent most of my day so far training Tamaki!

So far this is my team!

Tamaki/Slowpoke LV 19
Docile Nature (I think it was because of Eifi's Synchronize)
Own Tempo
Confusion
Yawn
Tackle
Water Gun

Eifi/Espeon LV 20
Docile Nature
Synchronize
Confusion
Tackle
Tail Whip
Flash

Now i plan to challenge Bugsy, Though i'm sure if i should yet. I'm at a type disadvantage and Scyther is NOT a pokemon to be underestimated!

I'll try not to make the next update so long! ^^"

Update Day 9 - Quite possibly the final day. :D

I stayed up rather too late last night so I'm still kinda tired, but eh, it'll wear off.
Gotta do even more grinding since... Well, let me put it this way. I didn't hate Gary until yesterday. :l It's like his Pokemon never miss, run out of PP, or anything negative. No burns, paralyzation, etc. My game hates me. (Hates me since my guise are level 70~ (65-69), and I'm having trouble with his level 50's. -_-)

Wow, I never realized how good the moves are that you can get in the Battle Frontier... Hmmm, I think I might grind BP...

Yeah, I don't really even know how to get BP, so nevermind, and I guess my guise are high enough levels to try again...

All right! All 16 badges! 1 more fight! After a substantial amount of grinding, that is. I'm gonna get them around the levels of the Pokemon in my signature.

Ok, my guys are around level 80 now. Didn't take as long as I thought, but that's why I saved the routes with TONS of trainers for near-endgame.

Let me know what you guys think. I've gotta finish the rest soon, so I don't know when my next Normal-type update will be.

-Got to the radio tower. "Hey, i need to go up there. if you could just.." "YOU NEED A UNIFORM blah blah blah..."
-got a uniform, started to sneak in.
-Damn my rival. knocked the guard out.
-That guys Muk, the one with minimize, is so stupid. i used like four sand-attacks on it. it used minimize 6 times. there 8 rounds in a row with no one getting hit.
-have i ever said how weak my Pidgeotto is? it knows like no good attacks and has low stats. Can't wait for Pidgeot. i gave him a metronome for a little extra power.
-Currently getting my programs back at the radio tower

ending team is (most likely) going to be: Pidgeot, Noctowl, Crobat, Dragonite, Delibird, Skarmory. unless i drop Pidgeot for a Staraptor later. i've had good experiences with both, sooooo...

ZOMG. All he has Venusaur left. SO CLOSE!!!

We have Champion Userbars? This is news to me... But yeah, I suppose I could do them. Do you mean Champion Userbars as in a Userbar just saying 'Pokemon HG/SS Mono-type Champion' followed by the type, or a Userbar saying all that, with the team added?

For the Dark-type, I plan on using all black, but maybe with a slight yellow glow (like Umbreon's rings).

I think you should put on there the strongest of that type. Like a ground type champ would have rhyperior, mamoswine, and like a steelix or something.

Um... I actually had a much different idea, and I kind of already made the Userbar...

My idea was to use the Overworld sprites of the Champion's team when they defeated Red (or the Pokemon League, which ever they stopped at), and an Overworld sprite of the character that best matched their type. For example, Toxic Potato used Fighting-types so he would get a Black Belt Overworld sprite.

Hope you like it, Potato. It was a real ***** to find all the Overworld sprites for this little project.

.EJ, if you could get me a list of each Champion and their team, I'd be grateful (since that way, I wouldn't have to go rummaging through this entire topic).

Or maybe like 3 of that persons Pokemon, if you want to get real personalized. (But that would take awhile if you did that for each champion.)

And thanks, Arcelio, for the userbar!

Actually, I downloaded the entire Overworld Sprite Pack from Project Pokemon, so it's not that hard to get the Sprites I need. Just arduous, since each Sprite has damn near ten variations, and I only need one.

Sure, but it's gonna take some thinking.

I guess, "Don't forget you can import eggs if the game lacks your type, like I did, or you'll be stuck with the same Pokemon for 3+ Gyms."

Also made one for TatoPacMan.

And with that, I am exhausted. I've done at least ten bars in the past twenty four hours. This is getting tiring. I should have known better than to take on the role of artist for this Challenge.

The userbars look really cool. didn't see it, thx for the bug userbar. :D

Update:
Got through the Radio tower. well more like stumbled through. completely forgot about the rival battle. Sneasel KO'ed Nightowl. but one flamethrower took care of that (i love that dragon). nobody else was very good. Flyboy kept getting Ko'ed because nearly every battle had a Muk or something that explodes T_T. Seriously not cool. The execs were easy as cake. Whats his face, Archer or something, wasn't nearly as hard as last time. Two Aqua Tails took out his Houndoom. the other two were jokes. Got the silver wing. do i have to do the Lugia event, or can i just skip it? It's soooo boring. The Eeveelutions the kimono girls have are good training though.... oh well, i'm not there yet. Currently fight trainers on the way to Ice Cave. Here i come Delibird! (then the dragons will fall, muahahahahaha......)

.Ej sorry for saying i hate ice types or something like that....

The userbars look really cool. but... no bug type? i'm the bug champ, and i want one >.<. jk, but it would be nice.... :D

You mean that you want the text 'Bug-type' on the Userbar? Trust me, I tried fitting it. It just wouldn't go, no matter what I did (that's what she said). That's why I made sure to have the colors and the Pokemon imply what the person's choice for type was. If I try to fit Bug-type in somewhere, all the text will look really bunched together, which'll make the bar look terrible.

Got bored, so I figured I'd update. This one isn't going to be humorous though, considering that I caught a nasty flu bug sometime between Thursday and yesterday, so I'm not at 100%. Kinda explains why I passed out at 5:00 AM this morning. Also, .EJ, you're doing Normal-type? It seems like I have even more competition this Challenge. Also, just so everyone knows, I'm taking a break from creating Userbars. I'll finish out the types for this Challenge, but after that, I need some rest. I'm not feeling very well, and I don't want to overexert myself. Sorry.


Activated all the floor traps in the Rocket Base, so I can gain some free EXP. It's a shame that I'm not doing the Electric-type Challenge right now; I could have gotten a Voltorb at this point.
Completely stomped through the entire Rocket Base, finished off some Electrode, stopped an 'evil' machine, and left the Rocket Base.

That's about it. Sorry for the short update. I just took some Tylenol PM, so I'm feeling a bit too sleepy to continue. I'll start again tomorrow.

well, heres an update:
I. found. SHINY DELIBIRD!!!! it was the first one too. Caught it, was planning on naming it Santa, but different colors, so named Jack Frost. Massive training on Jack. Taught whatever TMs i had, being Ice Beam, Theif, and Substitute (no other good ones T_T). given EXP. Share and brought to Lv.30. Through ice cave, into Blackthorn. Went a caught a Skarmory. Named Steel. Brought to Lv.30. Massive grinding. Flyboy evolved into Pidgeot! renamed Wingman. He's actually good now. Waited till Lv.37 for early wing attack. Which was the reason i beat Clair. Wing attack! then Kingdra hurt itself (yay confuse ray) and poison killed it (sludge bomb). without wing attack, i would've lost. good call. Going into that cave, dragons den i believe, to get my badge.

Update time.



Ran to Mr. Pokemon's house. Unfortunately, some strange old man stopped me, and felt the need to show me his house, before gviving me some shoes. O_O
Was stopped on the way back by some rude red-haired boy. Totodile took care of him.
Went back and gave the egg to Elm, got another lecture.
Speeded through Route 31, mistakenly giving Joey my phone number due to my A button spamming. (Damnit).
Fought EVERY SINGLE TRAINER.
Went into Bellsprout tower. Was easier than you might think. Scratch FTW.
Just before the elder, NomNomNom learned Bite. Bite FTW. Elder didn't have a chance.
Healed up at this strange red building who hoped my Pokemon got completely screwed over and came back soon. What nice people.
Blazed through the gym.
Falkner:

Round 1:
http://www.psypokes.com/dex/picdex/hgss/016_1.pngTotodile used Bite. Pidgey fainted! (lolpidgey)
http://www.psypokes.com/dex/picdex/ds_backs/158_1.png

Round 2:
http://www.psypokes.com/dex/picdex/hgss/017_1.pngTotodile used Bite. Pidgeotto used Sand Attack. Totodile misses. Pidgeotto uses Sand Attack. Rinse and repeat five times. Pidgeotto spams Gust. Totodile hits (finally). Pidgeotto faints!
http://www.psypokes.com/dex/picdex/ds_backs/158_1.png


Totodile evolves into Croconaw!
I carry on down Route 32 after the wierd guy lets me. Catch Magikarp and Tentacool with Old Rod.
Blaze through Union Cave with NomNomNom the Croconaw.
Emerge at that city with the name I cannot remember.
Thrash Team Rocket to pieces, catching a Slowpoke (S l o w...) and learning Ice Fang in the process.
Went into the gym.
Bugsy:

Round 1:
http://www.psypokes.com/dex/picdex/hgss/123_1.pngScyther used Focus Energy. Croconaw used Ice Fang. Super effective! Scyther used Quick Attack. Croconaw used Ice Fang. Super effective! Scyther faints.
http://www.psypokes.com/dex/picdex/ds_backs/159_1.png

Metapod and Kakuna do nothing.



Thrashed Rival with Ice Fang and Bite.
Caught some random irresponsible kid's Farfetch'd, got Cut, taught it to Tentacool (HM Slave).
Taught Headbutt to Croconaw, forgot Scratch.
Stupid Croconaw showed Kimono the way out, even though I said I wouldn't help. BAD POKEMON!
Fought the trainers on Route (I think) 33.
Got Lyra the Liar's phone number. She instantly calls me to tell me Marill's evolved.
Saved the game in Goldenrod Radio Tower.

Wow, its been a while since I've seen this old thing. Reminds me of my first days when I used to write in it about every other day or so. Hmm, guess I'll need to catch my records up a bit.

-After winning the badge from Goldenrod I got a squirtle bottle for watering plants at the shop beside the gym. Then I headed for the park but I got side tracked by the opening of some stadium west of the park. It was okay, not very interesting or maybe I was just tired from travelling around so much.

-At the park I participated in a bug catching contest and i won with a venonant! Afterwards i headed for Ecruteak but got stopped by some dumb tree with turned out to be a pokemon. It went down easily to Karin and we went on our way.

-In Ecruteak we met Bill, who gave my a Eevee. After training Chaney, Riza and Karin for a while I decided to breed it and raise the baby into a Umbreon...that turned out to be a great idea (though I still haven't named him yet...)

-After training Umbreon to be on the level that everyone else was at I got another addition to my team. Cramen, the odd guy, was standing in front of Burned Tower holding an egg. He said that he found it in the debris of the tower and didn't know what to do with it. So he gave it to me! Aren't I lucky? Well shortly after the egg hatched and I got a Houndour...who i named Selim. Training him wasn't easy...but it was well worth it!

-Once properly trained we finally got around to exploring a while. In the Dance theater a Rocket was bother one of the Kimono Girls so I gave him a quick lesson on how to kick some...butt. Seriously, those Rockets need those lessons. After being shamed by Red three years ago they're really not a challenge at all.

-Explored the Burned tower a while after where I met this mystery man with the Gym Leader. They were stalking some strong looking pokemon that were resting on the bottom floor. Decided to not be a creep I headed down only to be stopped by Wesley once again. Poor guy still couldn't beat me...and the new additions to my team just made things worse for him.

-Well the dogs ran off and Mr. Mysterious ran off after the blue one name Suicune. A little obsessed I guess, but they're nothing special in my eyes...even if they are legendary pokemon.

-Battle against Morty...that was quite easy. He then said something about me meeting the legendary pokemon Ho-oh or something but I didn't pay attention to that. I was stuck on the new badge I had...plus who cares about legendary pokemon anyway...they're no fun!

-Headed off for the next town, while fighting some people. I love my Murkrow...he's awesome.

-Stopped at the Miltank farm and helped out the Miltank there. Then the little girl gave me a seal case...not sure why because Johto doesn't have any contest halls...so there's not much of a reason to have it.

-Reached Olivine and saw Wesley again. We didn't fight this time, but he informed me that the leader was in the Lighthouse tending to a sick pokemon. That's nice.

-The lighthouse was ridiculous, I almost killed myself when I went to look out a freakin' window. Anyways, Jasmine, I think it was, had a sick Ampharos and needed someone to get medicine for her. So across the sea we're going...i don't like the sound of that. However on the bright side, Riza evolved into a Weavile. It was awesome and she's a lot stronger and faster than before. Man she owns!

-Reached Cianwood sometime at night. Umbreon got a load of training along the way and so did Karin. She evolved into a Crawdaunt, which made me really proud. Having my pokemon evolve just gives me that special feelings, that and she became a partial dark type pokemon.

-Got the secret potion and dominated Chuck's Gym. I was a little worried since my pokemon were dark type, but they really had no problem. Probably because those fighting types never got the chance to attack. hehehe...

-Flew back to Olivine and delivered the potion. Then I got a call about the Safari Zone and decided to give it a try. I caught a few good pokemon, but the most interesting was a Larvitar, who I bred later on to get Taro, the finally pokemon in my team.

-Stumbled upon a dusk stone while training Taro, and Chaney evolved into a Honchkrow. Haha, he looks like a pimp now.

-Fought Jasmine using only Taro and Selim and barely came out with a win. Her Steelix was a tough customer, but he went down.

-Arrived in Mahogany Town and visted the Lake of Rage. I caught a Red Garaydos there and met Lance. He's got some strong dragon type pokemon...I don't think I want to fight him.

-Helped Lance get rid of those pesky runts known as Team Rocket. Man why are they so pathetic with Giovanni. It's like a duckling whose lost its mother. Poor them though, they should just give up.

-Well, now that you're really caught up to speed I can tell you that Taro evolved. Unlike the others I was sad when he did so, becuase he was so awesome when he was the little green guy that was pulling out all the stops. I really don't mind his new form...but I really perfer his old one. Oh well, no need to complain. Anyway I'm off to battle Old man Pryce. Wish me luck!

Team:

Chaney/Honchkrow
Male/lvl 31
Mild
Insomnia

-Night Shade
-Fly
-Drill Peck
-Pursuit

Notes: This guy is awesome. He's become the leader of my team and he's easily my most favorite of all of them.

Riza/Weavile
Female/Lvl 31
Quirky
Pressure

-Screech
-Fury Swipes
-Faint Attack
-Ice Punch

Notes: Second fave in the group. This girl can sure pack a punch, take a hit and keep going. She's a bit fragile compared to others though.

Selim/Houndoom
Male/Lvl 29
Bold
Flash Fire

-Bite
-Ember
-Odor Sleuth
-Sludge Bomb

Note: Love 'im, love 'im, love 'im! He's still lacking in some departments compared to the others, but once he learns those key attacks he's going to be a force to consider. I like having him follow me.

Karin/Crawdaunt
Female/Lvl 31
Bashful
Shell Armor

-Surf
-Swift
-Strength
-Protect

Notes: She's awesome...but she really hasn't learn many moves that could be useful in the future. At least not any that complements her stats.

Umbreon
Male/Lvl 31
Impish
Synchronize

-Confuse Ray
-Quick Attack
-Pursuit
-Sand-Attack

Note: One word...Tank. He's been able to take multiple hits...it's like he eats them for breakfast while spitting out confusion among his opponents. He's definitely staying with me until the very end.

Taro/Pupitar
Male/lvl 30
Serious
Shed Skin

-Bite
-Rock Slide
-Dark Pulse
-Screech

Note: Even though he's not a dark type yet, he's fits right in with the rest of the family. He's hard to train though...grows really slowly, but oh well. He's here to stay.

Slaves:

Sandshrew (Cut, Strength, Rock Smash)

Update Time:

Last I left off I was training Rattaking and Buo...well that's what I continued. Once I got them to a decent level and Buo learned peck I challenged the sprout tower. Buo took care of them easily and Rattaking would finish off some bellsprouts as well. Once I made it all the way to the top I encountered the Elder and my rival, Faquan. Faquan apparently defeated him and then took off. Mouthing off about being emo and only liking the strong...blah blah. I challenged the elder and easily defeated him.

Once I descended, I rested my team and quickly challenged Falkner and his gym. The first two trainers were no match for Rattaking and his quick attack. After this, I saved and challenged Falkner. I used focus energy first and then continued to use quick attack. With a heightened critical hit ratio I knew I was bound to get lucky. I managed to beat Pidgey with two quick attacks. Once Pidgeotto was out, I switched out to Buo and sent it to sleep with Hypnosis. After it was safe to switch in Rattaking, I did. I used focus energy once more and quick attacked my way to victory. The winning blow was indeed a critical hit.

Not necessarily.

I'm not one to overlevel my teams and grind for too long so if anything I anticipate that Snorlax to be just a little behind my other guys.

Anyhoo, I might even catch a Slakoth just for the lulz (it'll be extremely below my other guys.)

HaHa, Gina finally came through and i got my leafstone.

UPDATE!

I landed on cianwood quickly and began to explore. oh my god. It's suicune. I watched it run off across the waves and turned around to face none other than eusine. He prattled on about suicune being awesome, and then decided to battle me. I slaughtered him. It was fun! Anyway, I ran back to the pokemon center and healed before entering the gym.

"CHUCK! CHUUUUUUUUCKKK! DUDE!"

It was no use, I was going to have to find a way to hit that switch...And after about 20 minutes of battling gym trainers, I had turned off the switch. I ran back down the slippery ladder and challenged Chuck to a battle. about 2 hours later (5 rematches) I had his badge. HaHA! I turned back to olivine and headed off.

I quickly ran to the top of the lighthouse and gave the medicine to amphy, whilst crossing my fingers. I released a sigh of relief when its light blinded me and I nodded to jasmine. It was time.

After a fairly short battle that consisted of 4 digs, I had a new badge ;D. TO MAHOGANY!

When I got to mahogany, i decided to do some sightseeing, and went to the lake of rage. OMG! RED GYARA!
Oops...I killed it. When I got back on land, a guy with red hair told me to meet him at the shop. I nodded and followed him.
Lance and i cleared out the team rocket base quickly, before defeating the 6 electrode. I thanked lance for his help, and proceeded to pryce's place.

Might i just say, FIRE BLAST FTW! HaHa. It was an AWESOME TM, and I taught it to nina. She slaughtered nearly everyone in that gym. heheh. After i left, Elm called me frantically and told me to investigate the radio tower.

When i got there, i fought my way up and defeated petrel. He gave me the key card and i saved the director. he told me to finish team rocket off. i nodded.

Without any effort, i defeated proton and ariana, and then i had a bit of trouble with their leader. I defeated him in the end though, and it was awesome!

Next stop, Dragons...!

Time to update ^w^



Reached Azalea Town
Seen a man in a black suit punch someone then he blocks the entrance to the well D=
Not wanting to start anything with people i didnt know, i walked into town ignoring what just happened.
I happened to see the house of the Legendary pokeball maker, Kurt, so i go inside to see if he would make some for me
But instead he says something about Team Rocket, and then storms off to the well alone. I chase after the senile old man. Hes going to get hurt.
I get to the place where the Rocket was, and notice its empty, so i trek down to the well to see, and no ones there, so i climb down into the well
Oh.. Kurt... hes dea- wait no hes alive. Back hurts though... stupid fool fell down, now i got to go in his place.. this is what i get for being nice.
I fight my way through the Rocket Grunts, they are not even worth spitting at.
I get to Proton, he tells me who he is, and then explains that hes the "Meanest" Rocket member, oooh this is gonna be fun
Damn it, hes weak too. If hes the meanest, Team Rocket isnt worth the breath.
Kurt takes me to his home and gives me a Fast Ball as an award, I R TTLY SO HPPY
Afterwards i go and train up my pokemon alittle, then i challenge Bugsy's Gym.
I fight through the Gym, taking down every trainer for experience, then i fight the Leader
he gives me quite a fight, his Scyther and its U-Turn was devastating to me, i took out his Metapod and Kakuna so easily, but Scyther was another story, downing all my team except Riolu, and i lucked out with Counter, after almost getting one-shotted by U-Turn. Woo 'nother badge!
Went out and fought my Rival, Silver. Only challenge was his defensive Bayleef.
I got into the forest, and found the Far'fechtd
Went and taught Headbutt, from the crazy fat dude, to Poliwag and Shroomish. Poliwag was lacking a physical attack and i needed something on Shroomish that wasnt a grass-type and was stronger than Tackle.
Went back into Azalea town, headbutting alot of trees for that ever allusive Heracross. Finally found one and caught it, Heracross added to team! :D
Fought my way through Illex Forest and Route 34, got to Goldenrod!
Visited Name Raters House, grinded on Route 34 and 35, got Bicycle, and then went to challenge Whitney.
Beat all of Whitneys lackies, then went after her
I took down Clefairy with Shroomish, and then out comes Miltank, To be safe i sent out Riolu (then at level 25)
-Miltank somehow outspeeds me (i mean wtf?!) and uses attract. Not wanting to deal with this i switched to Heracross (at the time level 10) and he was knocked out by a stomp (was hoping for something like a start of a Rollout combo, no such luck) so i sent back out Riolu, and she uses Attract AGAIN!.. Argh, so i withdraw Riolu and send out Shroomish, and I Leech Seed her, then i get in one Seed Bomb, before she 2HKOs me with Stomp
--I send out Riolu again, and she uses Attract again... so i say screw it, and use force palm, luckily i wasnt immobilized, and i OHKOd her Miltank
Woo badge number three!!
Double Woo, Riolu evolved into Lucario!
After, i get the Squirtbottle, then i go and attack Sudowoodo, i knock it out and continue onto Ecruteak City, and I head to the Dance Studio, and fight off the Rocket, Then after obtaining the (atm unuseable) HM Surf, i head out east of Ecruteak City, to Mt.Mortar.
I walk around inside the first cavern (after getting bumped into by the Hiker who gives you Strength, and I find a Machop! I capture it and headed on my way back to Goldenrod, since I forgot to name the Machop.
And now im Currently grinding up my team (levels are wack yo)

I was actually planning to trade in eggs, but I'm not able to. My Pearl game is still lost so I was planning to find out where I could find my first Dark-type Pokemon. That said, I've already started so I can find one as soon as possible.

Edit: Okay, I cannot find a single Dark-type Pokemon that can be found early on. I guess I'll switch to the Poison-type now.

Sweet! I've already made some progress. I caught a Zubat in the Dark Cave. Going to challenge the first gym at the moment.

Edit: I've just finished battling the first gym leader, but I've already cheated at this. It was simply impossible to do this with a level 11 Zubat so I had Cyndaquil to help a WHOLE lot. All it knew was Leech Life, Supersonic, and Astonish. I could not have done it with just that so can I have a little mercy this once?

Meh, personally, I think you deserve some leniency. Poison can be a real ***** to train in the beginning, considering that you don't get many strong Poison-type Pokemon at the beginning of the game. You get Weedle, Spinarak, and Zubat, if I recall. Not exactly 'star players', if you catch my drift. However, it seems like no one else that took on the Poison-type Challenge had this problem, so I'm not too sure.

Regardless, the decision is out of my hands. At most, I can advise .EJ, but I won't make decisions behind his back, just like how he (hopefully) wouldn't go behind mine. The ball's in .EJ's court, so you'll just have to wait for him to give the final word.

.EJ

Nah it's all pardoned. Just make sure to drop off cyndaquil unless he's an HM slave. Oh and arcelio you can drop the "." on my username, it's only there because the limit for an username was three letters when I signed up lol =]

anyhoo, update!

I challenged Bugsy when Buo and Rattaking were at lvl 16. Unfortunately that match went horrible so I knew grinding was in store for me. I went outside and grinder them each 4 levels. I did that so they would both evolve. With a Noctowl and Raticate in hand, I took on bugsy and my rival, Faquan, easily.

Poison type is hard man. When I started off i had a level 3 weedle, and the second I caught it i dropped my toto off. Poison is a PAIN to train, and it took me three hours to train my weedle to lvl 10 and evolve it, but I also caught a bellsprout, Zubat, and Ekans, all of which can be caught directly outside of violet.

It just requires a ton of grinding, and it helped once i was high enough to OHKO weedles. Also, poison types in sprout tower = :D

And you can catch gastly IN sprout tower. (5 poison types RIGHT THERE!)

May 11th, 2010, 07:06 PM
Thanks for the exception. And now for an update!

I was down in Route 32 fishing for a little bit. Hoping to catch a rare Tentacool, I find a Magikarp instead. I decided to run away, but quite surprisingly I was unable to. I decided to attack and found it it was faster than Zubat! I couldn't stand it so I just kept attacking it. It took quite a few hits to get rid of it, so I went on. I had also found a quite lively fisherman to battle. It was good training for Gastly. By the way, Goldeen are tough when you have a level 11 Ghost Pokemon.

Going to the next Pokemon Center I healed my Pokemon there. I went back out and kept on grinding. Gastly was rather simple because of the lack of damage from Normal-type attacks. Had to go back to the center a lot because of Mareep paralysis. I battled another trainer who had a male Nidoran. I was somewhat jealous, because of how much I wanted one...

Moving on to training my Spinarak, I had a much harder time doing that. I ran into a bird trainer which was a goldmine for Spinarak. Thinking my Spinarak was still underleveled I went into Union Cave. I soon found a Zubat that was a lower level than my Spinarak. I continued my walk through the Cave.

Current team:
Zubat
Male, lvl 13
-Leech Life
-Supersonic
-Astonish
-Bite

Zubat, I've realized, is quite an amazing Pokemon. It's a very good Pokemon and is worth it to train. Looking forward to that Crobat I'll get.
Gastly
Male, lvl 13
-Hypnosis
-Lick
-Spite
-Mean Look

Ghost Pokemon seem like the hardest to harm in certain situations. I'll rely on this Pokemon for those times when all my other Pokemon just don't seem to survive certain attacks.
Spinarak
Female, lvl 8
-Poison Sting
-String Shot
-Scary Face
-Constrict

Bug Pokemon, seemingly the weakest type of Pokemon. Vastly underestimated from what I've seen. Spinarak is a temporary Pokemon. When I get Weedle that'll replace Spinarak. Until then, this is all I've got.
Geodude(HM slave)
Male, lvl 2
-Tackle
-Defense Curl
-Rock Smash

Can't really say anything at all other than "soon to be loaded with HM moves"

I'll probably give an update tomorrow. I'll probably have beaten Bugsy (Oh god...) by then. I probably won't have a good enough move to take out an onslaught of Bug Pokemon so Zubat is going to be used the most.

If anyone cares, I just thought I'd say, it's taking me awhile to get my two "for sure" Steel Pokemon, which would be Riolu and Beldum, but the friend who is supposed to trade me these two eggs, still hasn't even bred them yet. I'm being patient about it, but I want to get started already. (Patient as in, if he doesn't hurry, I'm just going to resort to Steelix and Scizor, which'll leave two empty spots in my team, since those were probably going to be in my team, anyways. :l Yep.

Amphy evolved into.. Flaaffy!
Reached Azaela Town and saved the Slowpokes from Team Rocket.
Grinded Amphy and defeated Bugsy in a easy fight and got the 'Hive Badge'
Tried to go to Ilex Forest but was stopped by my Rival (whom I named ??? like the good G/S/C days)
Meganium is an evil pokemon :'(. Tried to fight Rival again and lost.. again...
Now i'm just gonna have to grind for ages.
Okay I beat my rival with luck. THANK YOU PARALYZE.
Got to Goldenrod City.

And now my favorite time of the day! Updates!

I made it through that Union Cave. It's a lot shorter than I remember, though. Going outside I snuckily snuck my sneaky self past that hiker. While walking into the next coming town I saw a two men, one clothed in black and having a large red "R" symbol somewhere on it. The other man ran away and the man in black seemed to stand guard of the well behind him. I continued onto the Pokemon Center and healed up. I then went to see Kurt, the ball maker of the town. He had talked to me about Team Rocket's evil scheme to cut off sell Slowpoke tails!

He sprinted off to the well. I went off to follow him and found the Team Rocket member out of the way. Upon going down the well I found Kurt not moving. He had apparently fallen down on his back. I went in myself to take care of Team Rocket. I was surprised at how low their Pokemon's levels are. Proton was just as pathetic as the rest of them. It's so sad how Team Rocket has been together for a long time and can't find any strong Pokemon.

As soon as I was done with them Kurt brought me back to his house. I got his phone number from that little girl and I continued out of his house. I healed my Pokemon yet again, bought some potions, and headed to the gym. I wasn't surprised at how the place looked. I battled a few trainers and eventually got to the gym leader. Thinking Bugsy would choose a Pokemon with Normal-type moves I put Gastly in front. I was quite surprised that he started off with a Scyther. That U-Turn took quite a lot of health from Gastly. He switched to Kakuna and I proceeded to knock the stuffing out of it.

He sent out Scyther again and used U-Turn, this time switching to Metapod. I used Spinarak instead to take care of it. Poison Stinging it down, Bugsy was forced back to Scyther. Sending out Gastly once more I learned that it could STILL use U-Turn! Gastly, Spinarak, and Zubat put up a good fight against it. I was eventually forced down to Geodude, the HM slave. He completely obliterated my team! After that everything turned white. Waking up in the Pokemon Center I immediately healed my Pokemon. I would have to train a lot more to beat Bugsy and his Bug-Type Pokemon.

Current team:
Zubat
Male, lvl 15
-Leech Life
-Supersonic
-Astonish
-Bite

Still the strongest of my team. It can put up a great fight for a long time. As I said before, that Scyther took it down rather quickly. Scyther was close to fainting so I would say Zubat is pretty powerful right now.
Gastly
Male, lvl 14
-Hypnosis
-Lick
-Spite
-Mean Look

Gastly is still the main one for gimping normal types. Hypnosis is very annoying and Mean Look makes it unable to escape. Of course, U-Turn, as I have learned, completely screws that move over. I'll find a way around that.
Spinarak
Female, lvl 15
-Poison Sting
-Leech Life
-Night Shade
-Constrict

As you can see, Spinarak has learned a quite good move. Powers up with level so that's just more reason to level up Spinarak.
Geodude(HM slave)
Male, lvl 2
-Tackle
-Defense Curl
-Rock Smash

Still an HM slave. Not much else to say.

I'm grinding right now to take care of Bugsy. I'll update later in the event that I'll actually beat him.

Last I left off I was on my way to Goldenrod. I gave my team minimal training for this gym. I checked the Radio Station because I was a little bored from training and wanted to mingle. Once I arrived I laid my eyes on a pretty young woman in white and pink. I proceeded to talk to her and she wouldn't stop babbling about some radio card. I figured I'd win it for her and impress her ;) I took the quiz which I found easy and tried giving the Radio card to her. However she left before I could give it to her.

I chased after her and found myself in the gym. Oh man, I didn't wanna do the gym challenge now! The beauties challenged me one by one and I defeated them with Rattaking and Buo. Once I proceeded to the top, I found none other than that pretty gal. I tried to give her the card but she sent out Clefairy and wanted to battle. Being a sucker to fine women I agreed and sent out Rattaking. Fighting another Normal-type specialist should be fun I thought and indeed it was.

Her Clefairy fell to Rattaking's headbutt in one hit. I then proceeded to fight her miltank. A fine specimen of a Miltank I thought. I kept spamming Headbutt until she landed a critical hit and killed Miltank. I tried once more to give her the card but she started crying. I freaked out and ran away! Then this lady stopped me and told me to go back. I did hoping to give her the card but instead she gave me a badge and a tm. I checked both for any sign of her phone number but to no avail. Saddened I left north where I encountered a Sudowoodo. I finished it off and made it to Ecruteak. Once I was there I headed west and captured the third member of my team. The other half of my team should be in this Route 38.

I captured a Jolly Tauros named Toro and he's at level 13. That's it until I catch Snubbull.

Yeah, good luck with that. Snubbull have a 1% encounter rate, unless it's a swarm. I would suggest a Meowth and/or Miltank.

.EJ
May 13th, 2010, 12:24 PM
I got a Miltank as well but I just want the Snubbull so I can brag and say...."Yeah I found a Snubbull at a 1% encounter rate...what's that? Oh yeah he's great ;)"

Update: I captured a level 13 male snubbull, Quirky nature.

As you can imagine....that bastard took forever to catch but it's all good and it has a neutral nature so that's a plus.

Hey guys, I think I'm gonna take up a challenge, but I can't decide on a type...I'll post soon when I decide.

May 13th, 2010, 04:55 PM
· Ah, adventure time. The best time of the day….
· Now, before I got started in Clair’s direction, I bought Blizzard, and about 30 hyper potions. Then Buffy flew me to Mahogany town.
· I proceeded to head down a path that had an icy wind blowing through it and I shivered slightly. I put Buffy away since she was vulnerable to ice and I trekked on, ignoring a few of the trainers, fighting only enough to gain a few levels. I trudged into the ice path, and immediately wished that I had a coat…
· Getting through the ice path was easy, and I obtained some useful items along the way. I also saved a kimono girl. Those chicks really owe me big time.
· I ran into a chick with blue hair while walking through Blackthorn, and she gave me a gaze as cold as the town I was in. I healed my pokemon and ran to the gym.
· Jeez, with Blizzard, everything in this gym was easily slaughtered. Even Clair was easy! Although she must have thought I cheated or something, because she refused to give me what I RIGHTFULLY earned. I nodded at her challenge and proceeded to the Dragon’s Den.
· Wow. That dragon master was deep. He made me see straight into my pokemon-loving soul. Then clair came in and her jaw hit the floor. She was going to refuse me the badge, but one mention of lance shut her up. I guess she really respects him…
· Elm called me to his lab, and I was happy that I got the master ball. Then the kimono Girls notified me to meet me in the Ecruteak dance theater. I nodded briefly. Time for a REAL challenge!
· After heading to the theater, I saw silver walk out fairly miffed. The kimono girls were a challenge to him AND he was admitting it? I had to fight these chicks. Now.
· Whew, 3 battles later I had finally defeated that stupid espeon and I killed the rest of them. Yeesh….wait, LUGIA?! I followed the Kimono girls quickly, eager to see what I was going to do.
· After making it through the whirl islands in 55 seconds(NEW RECORD!) I caught Lugia. Stupid pain in the butt. Now, time for the E4…
· I ran past route 26+27 and defeated everyone in my way. I got to the entrance of victory road and smiled. It was time.
· About a half an hour later(I got a bit distracted) I was at the end. I killed all of my Rival’s pokemon and ran into the E4.
· CURRENT E4 PROGRESS:
Will (DEFEATED! First try!)
Koga (DEFEATED! First try!)
Chuck (DEFEATED! First try!)
Karen (DEFEATED!First try!)
Lance (DEFEATED! First try!)

May 13th, 2010, 06:44 PM
Now after a quite bit of delayedness an update!

I was making my way towards Ilex Forest after being brutally beaten by Bugsy and his Bug-type Pokemon. As I was about to walk in, I was suddenly stopped by my rival. He couldn't believe I was the one who stopped Team Rocket so he challenged my skills. After the brutal beating of his Pokemon he kept saying how individual Rockets were weak. He also said something about me being weak even after I nearly flawlessly beat him in a battle two seconds ago.

I went into the Ilex Forest and ran around to battle some Pokemon. I found some guy who needed help with two Farfetch'd. I had to go off and capture them two. When I was done this guy's boss came up to me and thanked me. I got the HM Cut for helping him out. I continued grinding and grinding on the Pokemon there. While I was there I found an Oddish! I caught it and had yet another great Poison Pokemon!

Only my Zubat and Gastly leveled up by one each. I soon went back to the gym to then get another beating. I had remembered there was one trainer I hadn't battled so I went off to battle him. It was rather pathetic and I didn't gain a single level up from it. I then went off to battle Bugsy again.

I managed to put Scyther to sleep with Hypnosis this time. I then proceeded to spam Night Shade. It actually managed to wake up and U-Turn on me. It didn't do as much damage as before, so that was good. Kakuna was switched out for it. Sending out Zubat I then spammed Bite. It flinched and I managed to beat it. Keeping out Zubat to battle Scyther I once again managed to Bite it. I hadn't expected Bugsy to use a super potion though. Zubat eventually fainted and I switched to Gastly again. Guess what, it used U-Turn. I actually had a revive so I used it on Zubat. Metapod couldn't do anything to Gastly, so it was a good opportunity. Gastly leveled up after beating it so I was pretty confident about using it against Scyther. Scyther U-Turned and left Gastly at ONE HP! I finally used Night Shade to finish it off and got another level up!

Beating Bugsy he handed over the Hive Badge. I could finally teach one of my Pokemon Cut and it would actually be useful! He also gave me U-Turn, a move that I would never use at all. Celebrating my victory I was about to venture through Ilex Forest!

Current Team:
Zubat
Male, lvl 16
-Leech Life
-Supersonic
-Astonish
-Bite

Still getting slightly stronger. I'm hoping it'll evolve about two updates from now. By then I'm hoping it's my strongest Pokemon again.
Gastly
Male, lvl 18
-Hypnosis
-Lick
-Night Shade
-Mean Look

Definitely 3 updates from now this thing will evolve. It's definitely a good Pokemon in many situations. I hope it'll be even better in the future
Spinarak
Female, lvl 15
-Poison Sting
-Leech Life
-Night Shade
-Constrict

I'm thinking Spinarak will evolve around the same time Zubat evolves. As I said before it will be replaced by Weedle which will eventually evolve into Beedrill. I'll enjoy these moments with Spinarak.
Oddish
Female, lvl 5
-Absorb
-Sweet Scent
-Cut

Oddish, freshly caught out of Ilex Forest. I taught it Cut so this will become one of the main Pokemon to actually know an HM. This one I'll be training extensively. I've had a sort of fondness for Grass-types so I'll be focusing on this one a lot.
Geodude
Male, lvl 2
-Tackle
-Defense Curl
-Rock Smash

I don't even need to say it.

I'm doing extremely well in my opinion. I've never actually used Poison-types for battling let alone doing a whole run using them. I plan on catching a Tentacool and Nidoran soon. I'm also planning on evolving several of my Pokemon so wish me luck!

Nohr
May 13th, 2010, 07:09 PM
Ah, just read up on the thread, and saw that you had said earlier that Ice is okay to send over an egg. What's the limit for the amount of eggs I can send over? I'm planning on sending over a Lapras egg and a Jynx egg, if that's okay. And if 3 is fair, a sneasel egg too. But if only 2 or 1 is allowed, that's cool too.

So yeah, Officially,

Type: Ice
Version: Soul Silver.

Excellent. :)

My name is Chora (Female) in-game, and I chose a Chikorita as a possible HM slave.

I hatched my Smoochum, and am currently training it before I face Falkner. Haven't hatched my Lapras yet, though.

If you don't mind me asking, who did you use in your final fight? I think my team around the end will be something like this...

Lapras
Jynx,
Mamoswine,
Weavile,
Glaceon,
And I'm not sure who my 6th will be, at this point.

Hello guys, I'm new to this forum.

I'm really interested in this Monotype challenge, primarily because I've played Pokemon so much that I'm starting to get a little bored out of it :( That's why I just wanna add some spice to my gameplay, haha.

I want to start a new game because no$gba failed to register my save which left me behind by 2 gyms, and I'm already tired of my Dunsparce getting pawned, hahaha.

A quick question:
Since I'm using an emulator and unable to trade, would it be okay if I cheat a Level 1 egg (of course with standard stats) into my team at the start?

And I have absolutely no idea what type I should use.. Any suggestions?
It's probably gonna be very dependent on the answer to the above question, hahaha.

.EJ
May 14th, 2010, 11:47 AM
Eh, it's actually quite the opposite.

Whatever type you use is the one that determines whether I'd allow an egg.

You're gonna need it. A thunderstone is easy to get since all you need is to compete in the pokeathlon and earn enough points to get one.

Good luck with the training. =]

Wah that's really unfortunate Azure.

Haha I think what I meant was that will you allow an egg through save file modification? I don't want to break rules or whatsover. :)

I'm thinking of Dragon/Bug/Steel for some challenge (of course bug wouldn't need eggs), but so many people are signed up in Steel and Bug? ><

.EJ
May 14th, 2010, 07:32 PM
Yeah I'd allow it since you can't really trade in an egg l.

And that sucks azure =/

I'll update the list.

emoxy
May 14th, 2010, 08:03 PM
I think I'll do Bug instead. The thought of being unable to trade for so many good pokemon (namely Steelix/Scizor/Kingdra) (for Dragon/Steel) just makes me lost interest.
Plus, Bug is probably a challenge. I don't think I'm gonna use Heracross. :)

I've always wanted to do one of these but have never had the time.. here's my application. :D

Username: yomamathecableguy
Type: Fire
Version: HeartGold

I'll be starting off with a Cyndaquil and EV training it like crazy on Unown's before I beat Falkner in order to get attack up for Whitney later on. Falkner and Bugsy will be no sweat whatsoever. When I get to Goldenrod, I'll be catching a Ditto to breed myself another Cyndaquil, then I'll be training it up to around level 20 or so, the other to about level 25-30. After Whitney I'm hoping to get a Magmar from the Burnt Tower and a Growlithe right before Ecruteak City. I don't know if I'm remembering correctly, but by this time Bill should be back at his house offering an Eevee now, so I'll be heading back to Goldenrod to pick up the Eevee, and hopefully have a Fire Stone at this point in order to evolve it into a Flareon. At this point, I will continue with this team until after all of Johto's gyms are defeated, then I'll have access to Houndour, which will be the last one I get for my team.

This is going to be difficult. I'll keep you all updated. :)

Here's update 1. Trying to make it as interesting as possible without pictures yet.

Update #1

- Started a New Game.
- Named myself Emoxy (this is actually the first time I'm using this name!)
- Got through all the instructions, bag, save, trainer card and options.
- Saw this weird looking red-haired guy standing outside Professor Elm's lab.
- Stood behind him just to get a good look of who he is.
- Oh, he's rather handsome. (I'm not gay.)
- Went into Professor Elm's lab.
- Chose Totodile, because he learns HM1345678. Cool stuff.
- Named my new friend Draco. RAWRR!!
- Seriously, what's with Pokemon names having ALL CAPS? It looks stupid.
- Oh! The lab guy gave me Potions.
- "Pokemon are weak in the beginning. Don't hesitate to use potions if you think yours is in danger." What crap? They are not weak.. :( They just need some love.
- Got my PokeGear! Changed the theme to the 5th one.
- Got Professor Elm's number. Seriously, I would want that cool red hair guy's number.. (No, I'm not gay.)
- "'!' Your Pokemon has a flower petal on its face!"
- "Draco doesn't seem used to its own name yet." This one made me laugh.
- "Ready Draco? We're gonna venture into.. the grass!"

Pokemon:
Draco
Level 5 Careful Totodile

Alright, things are moving along nicely.

I spent some time grinding my smoochum up to level 11, so it learned powder snow. I then demolished Falkner, and leveled up my Smoochum even further.

Finally, on my way to the union cave, my lapras egg hatched. I spent some time training it, now it's quickly turning into quite the tank. After clearing Team Rocket out the slowpoke well, I saved.

I'm about to fight Bugsy, and I'm fairly confident I'll win.

Here's my team, so far.

Smoochum, level 19

Lapras, level 14


Can't wait until I get eevee, really looking forward to raising a Glaceon.

Are we allowed to import Eggs for Fire-type? You can get a Magby early using the Pokewalker, a Magmar in Burned Tower/Safari Zone, Numel (with Hoenn Sound), a Slugma from Primo, the Fire-type Starter Pokemon, Houndour in the Safari Zone, and a few others in Kanto.

Did you okay this, EJ?

~Drak

Well, if you're using Cyndaquil as your starter, you can obviously keep it, since this is a Fire-type Challenge. I'm just checking to make sure that you're allowed to import Eggs for Fire-type because, if you can, I think that's the type I want to do next.

Athprim
May 15th, 2010, 01:25 PM
I'm pretty sure he told someone else no on the importing of fire types. Someone had asked previously about importing a Charmander and I do believe he was told that was a no go.

.EJ
May 15th, 2010, 01:32 PM
^You are correct but that was for obvious reasons since you can't find a Charmander in the wild...ever.

Nah I did not ok it, Arcelio. Thanks for checking though =]

I won't allow a magby egg but I'll allow Houndour.

(am I missing any info? If I am I will edit this, internet is being unusually slow this evening.)

Since EJ didn't answer yet, you're in.

Since you're doing Steel-type, you're allowed to import two Eggs of your choosing, so your request is approved.

No, we've got all your info. All we needed was your User-name (which we can see), your version (HeartGold), and your team (which you're not too sure of yet, right?).

^You are correct but that was for obvious reasons since you can't find a Charmander in the wild...ever.

No problem, EJ. I was just checking the thread for new recruits, and I noticed the 'Fire-type import Eggs', so I checked it out.

I found a Charmander in the Wild once...

Edit: Update coming soon. I plan on going from now until midnight, so expect a long post.

What, pokemon yellow? Lol or perhaps a lil cheating?

Btw, normally I'd say no to bringing somebody never found in the game (i.e. Piplup/riolu) but I think Porygon Z did it with a metagross and I never called him on it.

Well, I think it's a bit late to call that rule, considering you said it was okay to bring in a Pichu if you do the Electric-type Challenge, so you'd be a bit late on that one.

Cheating? Me? Neva!

Those look fine. The only question I have is, how exactly do you intend on Magnezone? You can only get it through Pokemon D/P/Pt, and only by training it in Mt. Cornet. I think you'll have to stick with Magneton.

Other than that, everything looks fine. EJ did say that Trade Evolutions are okay, so go nuts with Steelix and Scizor. Magnezone though, you'll have to get the okay from him.

So wait, I'm doing a Fire-type challenge.. am I allowed to import a Houndour egg? That would be helpful so I won't have to do the first 3 gyms with one Pokemon. >.>

Yes, you can import a single Houndour Egg, but not Magby, or anything else.

-Picked Lyra instead of Ethan(Gold) this time.
-Woke up and went downstairs to say hi to mom, and she gave me a few goodies, including my backpack.
-Went outside and was ambushed by Gold's Marril. That thing sure is jumpy. Took cover in Professor Elm's lab.
-Obtained totodile. Now my Rival will have chikorita, and I will have a good HM slave.
-Followed Elm's instructions and went toward Mr. Pokemon's house. Was ambushed by an old guy in Cherrygrove on my way there, who bribed me with running shoes. Got the Pokedex from Oak.
-Got a call from Elm saying a "terrible" thing has happened, started heading back...
-Ambushed by a redheaded boy in Cherrygrove city. Scratched his stolen Chikorita to death and stole his trainer card.
-Went back to Elm and told him the redhead's name, Silver.
-Went back to route 29 where Ethan taught me how to catch pokemon. I then caught a lvl 2 Pidgey immediatly.
-Leveled up pidgey with no help from totodile. Fought a few trainers and went in dark cave.
-Caught a lvl 4 Zubat.
-Trained the zubat till he was level 12
-Headed to the sprout tower.
-Laughed at all the bellsprouts using vine whip on zubat.
-Proceeded up to the top of the tower.
-Watched my rival as he beat the master sage.
-Used pidgey and zubat to beat the master sage.
-Obtained the flash tm.
-Headed to Violet city cym.
-Zubat spams bite and destroys both trainers inside.
-Confronted Falkner
GYM BATTLE
-Zubat managed to kill the first pidgey without any trouble. Bite is pretty powerful in the early game.
-Pidgeotto was sent out by Falkner.
-I use supersonic and luckily it hits. That would stall me some time.
-I used bite until Zubat fainted.
-I sent out pidgey, who was level 15 at the time.
-I used quick attack... CRITICAL HIT! Pidgeotto faints.
-Falkner hands me his badge and the deed to the gym.(one of those is a lie :lol: )
-Headed to the next route...

*Yawn* Late update is late. Sorry bout that, folks. Had some things to take care of, PSPs to fix, and a flu to get over. But, I'm back now, so I'll update with my usual humor (which was absent the last update). To make sure no one gets confused, I'll be writing my update from the first-person perspective.


Woke up in the Rocket's Warehouse, surrounded by unconscious Electrodes. This is why I don't go to rave parties. You always wake up around some weird ****, and waking up next to Electrodes definitely rank pretty highly on that scale.
While I was passed out, all the Rockets left, and they disarmed all their traps while leaving. That was kind of nice of them. Still doesn't change the fact that they tried to hustle me near the Lake of Rage.
Speaking of which, who decided to name it the 'Lake of Rage'? That's gotta be one, if not the, most cliched name I have ever heard. If a Gyarados (or was it a swarm of Gyarados?) really made that entire lake, shouldn't it be called 'Lake of Gyarados'?
Well, the Snorlax that was blocking Mahogany's Gym is now gone, but that RageCandyBar prick is still sitting there. It's seriously starting to agitate me.
Left Tauros at the head of the pack (so to speak) and entered the Gym. This place'll be easy-peasy. Tauros can easily curb-stomp the Pokemon in here, and Togetic can pick up any slack with Fire Blast.
Okay, so the entire Gym is basically sliding ice blocks from one place to another, and then sliding on the ice. That's kind of lame. They should have made it so that there's a Hail storm inside the Gym, with Hail hitting you every turn. Now that would have been difficult.
Some 'Boarder' asked me if I was cold. It's freaking cold enough to make ice in here! Yes, I'm ****ing cold!
I was told Pryce's secret...and it doesn't make any sense. For one, he's an old man. If he tried to climb on top of cold ice, he'd probably slip, fall, and dislocate his hip. Second, so what if he is strong? It's not like I'm going to fight this old man with my fists. I'm going to send out my well trained animals (which consist of a ferret, bull, cow, bird, monkey, giraffe, and this weird egg...thing.) to attack his animals. Then, if I lose, I'll just listen to his stories about the 'Good ole days' and how he fought in the war, until he talks himself to sleep (or he needs to change his adult diapers). Then I'll just take a badge and leave.
Getting to Pryce wasn't even a challenge. Talked to him and, before he could start rambling about 'young-ins' and 'getting off his lawn', I challenged him to a battle.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/1/18/PryceHGSS.gifhttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4f/VSPryce.png


Stupid old man froze my Persian with a Blizzard attack from Piloswine. He shall pay.
Persian thawed out with 3 HP left. Yeah, I'm gonna have to bench you on this one, Persian. I don't want you to have to fight that Dewgong so close to KO'd status.
Sent out Miltank, the best Normal-type Wall Pokemon that you can get this early in the game.
Paralyzed his Dewgong on the first hit with Body Slam. He told me his middle name was Willow, in the middle of the battle. Seriously, who took this guy off his meds?
One more Body Slam and Dewgong is done for the day. The Glacier Badge is mine!

He also gave me TM 07, Hail. Not like I'm ever going to need it, so to EBAY it goes!
Oh great. The first step I take outside of the Gym, I get a call from the Pedo Professor himself, Elm. Why can't any of these people lose my number?
Oh great. Team Rocket took over the Radio Tower. Now I, playing the role of the cliche hero, after drag my lazy ass all the way back to Goldenrod, save an entire tower from an evil, not-so-powerful organization, and drive them off. Can't we just call the cops and hope they send in the SWAT team?
Healed up the team at the PokeCenter, since they deserved it after kicking Pryce's ass.
I saw Suicune trapped by some trees, and I could have saved it. I didn't. Screw Suicune. If I save it, that bastard Eusine will just keep following me until I bludgeon him to death with my PokeGear. It's just not worth it.
Yay! I found TM 65, Shadow Claw! This is going straight to Ambipom (who needs a better way to take down Ghosts). I also taught Shadow Ball to Togetic, getting rid of Yawn in the process. By the time I find any other decent Normal-type Pokemon, I'll already have access to Ultra Balls.

After stopping at the Ecruteak PokeCenter, I made a quick switch on the PC with Girafarig and Furret. Togetic and Miltank are gonna be sitting out for a while.
Trained Girafarig and Furret to match the general levels of the rest of the team, Level 41.
I trekked back to Violet City and withdrew Totodile and Bellsprout. Off to Dark Cave! With all but 2 HM (Waterfall and Rock Climb), there's no way that they can stop me from getting Teddiursa!
Oh shi-! Wild Dunsparce in Dark Cave! Mine!
Yay! Caught a Dunsparce in Dark Cave! Didn't nickname him, and he got sent to the PC. I'm gonna withdraw him as soon as I catch my Teddiursa and get the hell outta here.
Found a Max Ether embedded inside a crumbling rock, so I had Furret Rock Smash it.
After saving my file five times, the game refuses to register my save. I wasted hours training my Pokemon up, only to end up with nothing. I quit. There are many other ways to waste my time, and frankly, I'm ****ing pissed off that I lost, not only hours of grinding, but a Dunsparce too. Do you know how rare that is where there isn't a Swarm going on!? I quit. Goodbye.

I beat Bugsy with Relative ease, and am now anxiously awaiting my Smoochum's evolution.

Ran through the Illex forest, and made Chikorita my Cut-slave, for now. Training a bit before I face Whitney.

As it stands,

smoochum, Level 21

Lapras, level 18.

I'm really enjoying the ice-type, as it's a type I rarely play with, at all. I have no doubt that I'll make it all the way.

UPDATE:
technically, i just became champ for the second time. beat Blue's Pidgeot with two of Drakon's Thunderbolts. Think I'll fight Red this time, though. Drakon can now learn Earthquake due to evolution, so I probably should try. I finally have my finished Team, with it being Aero (newly(again) named Pidgeot), Drakon(Dragonite), Jack Frost (shiny Delibird), Steel(Skarmory), Nightowl(Noctowl), and Batty (EPIC Crobat). So, from last time, I beat Surge right when I got to Kanto. Easier than expected. Except for Electabuzz (damn him).went through Saffron to Celadon and owned Erika. back to Cerulean, but no Gym leader. Or radio. Pissed off that I was missing my programs (MAH PROGRAMZ!!!! NOOOOEEEZZZ!!!), i hurried to lavender to get a EXPN. Card, only to find out there was NO POWER. After many events (rocket guy, finding part), the power's back on and i can listen to my programs (yaaaaaaay). Back to misty, i beat her down after a pretty intense fight.Back to Saffron, I beat down Sabrina mainly by Biting then healing with Batty. Through Cycling Road, killed everything (Aero, peck it's brain out!),and got to Fuchia. Jasmine was made short work of by Nightowl's Extrasensory. Killed off the Snorlax (forgot to steal Leftovers:() and went to Pewter. Decided on a few things: i got bored and trained other people, including a Starly (now Staraptor) Surskit (now Masquerain), and Spearow (now Fearow), for funz (and if i need some help...) Then I took on Brock, beating him down with mostly Steel. Then across the sea to Cinnabar, no gym, so off to Seafoam. Got to Blaine and got him with unevoled Dragonair Drakon's Aqua Tail after an extremely tough fight (i whited out once). Got Blue to do his damn job (damn slackers), and beat him pretty easily. I love that dragon. and I LOVE that Bat.

All i need for Mt.Silver is rock climb and strength, right? anyways,

I may rethink my team a little. The egg thing has been bugging me and I may just start anew with a different type. It "steel" may be viable, but I dunno...the fact that this challenge should be done with guys you could normally catch in the game is knocking on my small bit of OCD...lols. Don't worry though EJ, as soon as i figure out what i want im gonna start.

EDIT: AND I have to get my friend to help me transfer my event Jirachi back to pearl. >.<

There's an old man in my room, and he's showing me a Marill. What the hell did I drink last night?
Am I a boy or a girl? You can't tell by just looking at me?! I'm a boy, *******.
Tell you my name? You can't even tell what gender I am when you're looking straight at me, and you want a name?! And besides that, who the hell are you, and how did you get in my house!?
Fine, I'll give you a name, if you promise to get the hell out of here. The name's Arcelio. It's Latin for 'altar to heaven'. There, I told you my name. Now leave, you near-sighted prick.
See me later? What does that mean!? Hey, don't walk away from me! I'm talking to you! Goddammit...
My bones! I'm shrinking! Dear God, somebody help me!
That was strangely arousing...
Checked my computer to make sure that the old man didn't mess with any of my...private files. Yeah.
Hey, I've got an e-mail from Lyra. It says 'I love POKéMON!'. Yeah, that's nice and all, but isn't that something you could have just told me in person? I mean, it's a three letter sentence. It probably took longer to type it out than it would have to just say it. Also, why just say 'I love POKéMON'? Are there people that wander around, screaming at the top of their lungs 'I hate POKéMON'?
Screw this, I'm just gonna relax and play some good, ole fashioned Super Mario Bros on my Nintendo Wii. Thank God for the Virtual Console.

*Two hours later*

http://otakunogamers.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/princess-is-in-another-castle.jpg


Yeah? Really? **** you too, Toad. Stupid damn princess getting kidnapped all the time. Not even Zelda gets caught this many damn times.
Got pissed and threw my Wii Remote (I will not call it a Wiimote) through my television. Just perfect. Now I've got no T.V., the princess is in another goddamn castle, and I've got nothing else planned today. Just freaking perfect. Might as well go downstairs for breakfast.
Hi, Mom. What do you mean, finally awake? Did you think I was dead?! ...You didn't even check up on me :(.
Lyra was here? And you didn't bother to wake me up at all? And Prof. Elm was looking for me? Did everyone think I was dead?
No Mom, I don't know where Prof. Elm's Lab is. Apparently, I lack the simple bodily function of turning my neck ever-so-slightly to the right and looking out a window. I blame the drugs.
Thanks for the stuff, Mom. Oh and...um...by the way...I broke the T.V. in my room with a Nintendo Wii Remote, so you'll have to buy a new one! Bye!
Just as I ran out and shut the door, I can hear my mother screaming at the discovery of yet another broken T.V. Hey, who's fault is it that Nintendo made such flimsy straps for their remotes?
Seeing as I don't have anything better to do, I figure that I might as well visit Prof. Elm and see what's up. Not like I can go home right now anyway, with my mother shrieking about broken T.V.s and taking it out of my allowance. Funny thing is, I haven't been allowed an allowance since I broke the Living Room T.V.
An odd Marill comes barreling right towards me. I didn't have much time to react as it crashed into me, so we both went sprawling to the ground. I was just barely picking myself off of the ground when Lyra shows up and takes her Marill somewhere else. I didn't even get so much as a 'Hello', let alone a 'Are you okay?'.
I walked, or rather, limped to Prof. Elm's Lab. While limping there, I noticed some strange red-haired kid skulking around the back. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that any time anyone is hiding behind a building, they plan on breaking in, or they're hiding from someone. So, me being the polite person that I am, go up to him and ask him just what the hell he thinks he's doing. He responded quite well at first.

Then he brutally and efficiently kicked my ass. Great, now my ribs just might be broken. And yet, even with me on the ground, crawling in pain, no one seems to make a move to help me. All this one girl keeps saying as she watches me writhe is 'I like your bag!'. That's great, but I'm having a little problem with internal bleeding here.
I crawl my way onto Elm's doorstep and manage to stand upright. It hurts like hell, and I think I can hear the cracking of my ribs, but I'll live (hopefully).
I walk into the Lab, wincing and panting with every breath. Note to self: Never pick a fight with that devil-haired bastard again. He can, and will, easily kick my ass and won't even bat an eyelash while doing it.
I manage to make it to Prof. Elm without collapsing. He asks me if I know anything about his research on Pokémon. I'm about to tell him 'No, I don't follow scientific ********', but he cuts me off before I can even get a single word off. He starts telling me how people used to walk around with their Pokémon, before the Poké Ball was created. Yeah, no ****, Prof. That's kind of freaking obvious. Seriously, who the hell paid you to find that out? If they're willing to pay for useless information like that, then I should be making millions right now.
He tells me that he's going to give me a Pokémon as part of a lab experiment. I'm tempted to tell him that I'm not some lab Ratatta, but the whole 'panting for breath' thing kind of stops me. He's offering a free Pokémon though, and it's not like I actually have to do anything. All I have to do is expertly lie, as I usually do, and everything'll turn out just fine. And even if it doesn't, what'll he do? Hit me? Please. I've got a Pokémon now. I'll just have it bite his face off and call it a day.

Right in the middle of this absolutely fascinating conversation, Prof. Elm gets an e-mail from a friend of his, one Mr. Pokémon. Okay, first off, no. There is no one called 'Mr. Pokémon' that hasn't had a name change. I don't care who you are. You are not named Mr. Pokémon. Second, it's rude to ask someone for a favor, and then walk off to read an e-mail right in the middle of the discussion, prick.
Okay, so I just found out that 'Mr. Pokémon' is, in layman's terms, a complete psychopath that lacks the ability to shut up about anything rare that he finds. He is the equivalent of a 'PLEASE ROB ME' sign, but with audio.
So now Prof. Elm wants me to go get an Egg for him from Mr. Pokémon. So what, now I'm a delivery-boy? I don't remember agreeing to this in the first place...
Meh, might as well do this little errand. Besides, if I do this, Prof. Elm will owe me one. And, worst come to worst, at least I can have a free omelet, as well as a free Pokémon.
Walked up to the Poké Ball Containment Machine, and nabbed the Pokémon that looked like a complete badass, a crocodile. Well, actually, his name is Totodile, but he's still a killer croc.
While trying to leave, and still clutching my damaged ribs, one of the Lab Aides hands me five Potions. That's kind of awesome, but what the hell am I supposed to do with these?
Pokémon are weak in the beginning? So why don't you just wait for them to become stronger, and then start training them? It just makes more sense that way.
I left Elm's Lab, only to be greeted by none other than Lyra. Yeah, real convenient for you to show up now, after I've already gotten my ass handed to me. Lyra suggests that I show my Totodile to my mother. Eh, maybe tomorrow morning, if she's finally gotten over the whole 'He broke another T.V.!' thing.

Well, it's already dark out, so I'm going back home. Mom should have calmed down by now, and if not, I can just sneak in through the window. Today was definitely one weird day.

Yesterday I can't access this forum the whole day for unknown reasons, so this is going to be a HUGE update.

And here's update 2; I realised I am progressing a LOT faster than I thought, so I'll spoiler the long update until this certain point, then I'll do shorter updates.

Name: Emoxy
Type: Bug
Version: Heart Gold

Update #2

- "Draco is rolling around in the grass."
- Cherrygrove City!
- "You're a rookie Trainer, aren't you? I can tell!" Oh, you sure?
- "That's OK! Everyone is a rookie at some point!" I think you're the rookie.
- "If you'd like, I can teach you a few things." No thanks.
- "OK, then! Follow me!" ... WTF?
- "Ohh, I'm sorry. I forgot that you weren't wearing the Running Shoes!" Uh, I take back what I just said. Give me one please <3
- ...
- "The instructions read, 'Touch the Sprint Button on the Touch Screen to sprint.' It also says, 'Hold the B Button down to sprint.'" Oh, if only my real life Nike Airmax has a Sprint Button.
- Route 30!
- Prof Oak: "You will treat your Pokemon with love and care, it seems." Good eyesight, old man.
- "Let's exchange numbers to be on the safe side." (.. I'm not gay.)
- The moment I go out of the house..
- "It's a disaster! Uh, um, it's just terrible!"
- Off we go.
- OMG! That red-haired guy bumping into me!
- "That's a Pokemon that's too good for a wimp like you." Uh huh.
- Thrashed.
- "Give it back! That's my Trainer Card!"
- "Oh no.. You saw wrote my name.." Apparently I managed to scribble a name into that card originally without name.
- Back to Elm's lab.
- "Whoever did it will come back to the site." Er...
- Named my rival Redhair because he, uh, has red hair.
- Yes mum please save my money.
- Thanks for the balls, Lyra. Time for a Caterpie!

- Got a Docile one, named it Pipp.
- Gosh, it's really hard to level a Caterpie.
- No contact numbers except stones. :)
- Pipp is Level 5! Bye Draco.
- What? Pipp is evolving!
- Violet City! With a Level 7 Metapod.
- I am so reluctant to fight the Sprout Tower with my Metapod. Attack EVs wasted..
- <Time Skip>
- I got killed by Elder's Hoothoot's PECK. GOSH.
- <Time Skip>
- I regret keeping Tackle instead of Poisonpowder.
- Sleep Powder + Confusion = Falkner gets thrashed. Not even potions at red health?!

- Completely swept Route 32, Union Cave and Route 33 with Pipp. Confusion does the job.
- Time for a Paras.

- Grinded, thrashed Slowpoke Well people, and went to Bugsy gym.
- Pipp OHKO-ed Scyther with Gust. This is completely unexpected.

- This didn't feel as hard as I thought for the early gyms.
- Sleep Powder + Gust = Bye Miltank. My Pipp was 4 levels ahead of him though.

- Continuing on.. I accidentally killed Sudowoodo.
- And.. Thrashed Morty with Pipp. Psybeam = win.

Sorry for the lack of detailed updates.. I don't want to make it too long. I was rather pissed when I can't access the forum yesterday :(

Current location: Mahogany Town, ready to go into the Rocket Hideout.

Pokemon:

Pipp
Level 29 Docile Butterfree
80/36/43/63/52/57
Compoundeyes
- Gust
- Sleep Powder
- Silver Wind
- Psybeam

Razor
Level 28 Relaxed Parasect
80/68/56/44/57/21
Dry Skin (Water Absorb!)

I am currently going to continue, so expect an update in a few hours.

Update #3

Decided to do the Ice Gym first, as I foresee heavy problem with Steels.

- Lance: "Dragonite, Hyper Beam." Noob. Where's Giga Impact?
- Persian Statues! Free exp. :)

Oh by the way I caught a Pineco, but I'm waiting for a Shuckle so that I can breed the move Power Trick on it.

Rocket Hideout was crap.

- Time for Ice Gym!
- Ice Shard dealt 10 damage to my Razor.
- Ok, Pryce's Ice attacks are owning me. SLEEP TALK IS IRRITATING.
- SLEEP ROCKS. Though Pipp died from Blizzard.. :(
- Razor survived a hit from Blizzard, and Bullet Seeded Piloswine to death.
- Got Hail, which I can't use.
- Time for the left side.

- FARFETCH'D! I NEED THIS CUT + FLY HM SLAVE.
- Bullet Seed hit 5 times and fainted it. Thanks.
- Got another one, named it Cufly, because it.. Cuts and Flies.
- Slowpokes rock because they let me heal through Leech Life.
- The trick to fighting Pikachu is, to use non-contact moves.

- Lighthouse was cake.
- Time to surf.
- Wild Mantine appeared!
- Got away safely.

And finally, Cianwood City!

- Why can't I use the SecretPotion? "It fully heals a Pokemon of any ailment."
- Got my Shuckie! Yay! Will throw it to the Daycare after I get fly.
- Time to give Eusine a whacking.
- ...
- Eusine: "Yo, Emoxy." Yo.
- Electrode nearly fainted my Pipp. Phew.
- And I keep forgetting that I have SILVER WIND (Drowzee).

- He's so into his training, he doesn't seem to notice you.
- Decided to use Razor against this gym because of the free Attack EVs.
- Instead ofIce Punch, Hitmonchan decided that Mach Punch and Thunderpunch was the way to go to Razor. He really needs to mug Pokemon.
- ROCK SLIDE IS PAINFUL.

- HAHAHA! BEST MATCH EVER!
"Poliwrath used Surf!"
"Razor healed because of Dry Skin!"
"Razor used Bullet Seed!"
*hit* *hit* "A critical hit!" "Poliwrath healed from its Sitrus Berry!" *hit* *hit*
"It's super effective! Hit 4 times!"

- And he's down to red. I'm seeing a Potion in the way.
- Hyper Potion.
- Uh oh. He Hypnotized me.

"Poliwrath used Surf!"
"Razor healed because of Dry Skin!"
"Razor woke up!"
"Razor used Bullet Seed!"
*hit* *hit*
"It's super effective! Hit 2 times!"

- And he's down to red again, after healing me twice. Seriously, sleeping me and not using Focus Punch? It'll definitely do more damage than Surf.
- And another Hyper Potion.
- Bullet Seed brings it to 40%.

"Poliwrath used Surf!"
"Razor healed because of Dry Skin!"
"Razor used Bullet Seed!"
*hit* *hit* "Poliwrath fainted!"

- And my Razor is at full HP.

Funniest Gym battle I've ever had.
- Giga Drain replaces Bullet Seed. Needs more PP, though..
- Off to Goldenrod to leave Shuckie with Daycare. I NEED POWER TRICK! I AM OVERLEVELED!
- I'm leaving a lot of the trainers that I didn't fight at the Surfing routes to my future Pineco.

Sorry for the mega big update. :( And I'm still playing.. haha.

UPDATE:

-Arrived on Route 32.
-Out of pure curiosity, headed to the left and ended up in some strange ruins.
-Solved a few puzzles and ended up falling down deeper into the ruins.
-Some strange pokemon shaped like letters attacked me. I fended them off with Zubat.
-Escaped and went back to route 32.
-Battled a few trainers, nothing too special here.
-Went inside a lone pokemon center where I recieved a broken down fishing rod from a random fisherman. I figured, why not use it?
-Fished on route 32 and caught a magikarp.
-After training for a bit, headed into union cave.
-I was ambushed by pyros and wierd scientists, until finally I exited the cave.
-Ran through route 33 and into Azelea town, and watched a Team rocket grunt harass someone. Headed into the well in front of me.
-Battled Team Rocket grunts and saved slowpoke well. Pidgey evolved into Pidgeotto.
-Headed into the gym in the town. Demolished the trainers inside.

-Recieved the second gym badge from bugsy and a TM.
-Ran out and started heading to Ilex forest but...

-Ambushed by the redhead again. He sends out a gastly on my poor magikarp.
-Switched out to zubat, gastly curses zubat. Zubat uses bite for the OHKO.
-Sent out Pidgeotto againt his bayleef. Pidgeotto is poisoned by poisonpowder but manages to gust Bayleef to death.
-Silver sends out Zubat... I send out Zubat.
-His Zubat manages to confuse mine with a cunning supersonic, and my zubat faints.

Update #4

- Jasmine doesn't want to go back with me :( So she went down the stairs instead of the elevator.
- Taught Dig to Razor as I'm scared of Jasmine..

Jasmine Fight:
- Magnemite dies to Dig.
- Giga Drain did more damage to Steelix than dig, surprisingly. Screech + Iron Tail brought my Razor down to 10HP, but Giga Drain owned it.

Couldn't wait for Shuckie to reach Level 47, so breeded my Razor with the Pineco instead. Now I got a Pineco with Giga Drain! Named it Fortress. :D

- Started Level grinding.
- Exp. Share + A few wild Pokemon.
- Went into the Radio Tower to grind up Fortress.

Radio Tower:
- Oh! That's the director! .. Not.
- Razor had to miss 4 Slashes in 1 Smokescreen, dying through Poison.
- I took the Basement Key with GRATITUDE.
- Oohh, pretty lady! May I.. Gosh, she ran away so fast, saying something about the legendary.. Oops! Let's continue.
- And here comes Redhair!
- .. My underleveled Fortress owned his Magnemite. :)
- And Pipp OHKO-ed Meganium with a CH Silver Wind!
- What are Burglars doing here?

- Save the Pokemon nationwide!
- Fortress evolved into Forretress!
- Petrel and Ariana got disposed of.
- Ariana's Vileplume used Sweet Scent.
- Ok, Houndoor is wreaking havoc on my Bugs.
- And now Houndoom. This is a problem.
- My Pipp's speed tied with his Houndoom after I leveled up by 1.
- Phew, Archer is defeated. Now I can see that Houndoom in the E4 is REALLY a problem.

- On to Clair!
- Fisherman: "The POLIWAG that got away... It was huge. I swear it must've been 82 feet long!" Yeah, yeah.
- Ice Cave.
- I disappeared!
http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/2.png
- And I came out of Ice Cave after meeting another pretty lady.

Dragon Gym
- Still grinding Fortress, though.
- Clair's Gyarados is a pain. I had to teach Shadow Ball to Pipp to get past it.
- Sleep Powder + Bug Buzz = Dragonair dies.
- Kingdra is the problem. Dragon Pulse owned Pipp; an attempt to use Fortress to tank Dragon Pulse failed (got almost OHKO-ed by Hydro Pump instead, and died soon thereafter). Kingdra was too arrogant though, and healed Razor through Hydro Pump.
- Soon after a 4-turn sleep in Spore and a CH in Giga Drain brought me to victory.
- Pipp died, though :(

- Fortress is having problem due to the low level :( Guess I need some grinding after.
- What are Pokemon to you? Friend.
- What helps you to win battles? Strategy.
- What kind of Trainer do you wish to battle? Anyone.
- What is most important for rasing Pokemon? Love, of course!
- Strong Pokemon. Weak Pokemon. Which is more important? Both! (I wonder why the choices are 'Strength' and 'Weakness'..)
- And Clair gets pawned.

- Grinding time!
- I thought that Gligar isn't red, so I thought I met a shiny one. -.-
- BUT I GOT POKERUS WTF!!!!

^What, No Scyther? Lol

I suggest adding more members to your team. You're gonna need their help.

Alright, so I'm not at this point yet, but I'm just wondering, is it ok to catch and level up Pokemon that aren't the type we choose, but only use them for egg moves? I won't use them for the story line or anything, just as parents for the ones I will use for the storyline.

No Scyther because I can't evolve it, and because I think it would make it less of a challenge =P Only if the game gets really hard, which I think it will... >< And I think I would probably use Pinsir instead of Scyther too.

Yup, will add more of course, just haven't thought of who to use yet. NO HERACROSS! XD

I think I will do this challenge with the Ice type. Is it okay if I trade across two eggs? =] I so, I think I will trade across Sneasel and Swinub, and evolve the Eevee from Bill into Glaceon.

.EJ
May 16th, 2010, 01:02 PM
^Yep. When I did it I only brought in Seel and I was forced to use it for 3 gyms until Bill gave me the Eevee. So it's a better idea to bring two in.

@Yomamathecableguy: Yeah, you can breed for egg moves. I did it for Sneasel and Ice punch.

@emoxy: Scyther is still an amazing pokemon without evolution. He has a really good attack and speed stat.


Also, the first post has been updated with more userbars. Credit to iceknight212 and arcelio. You'll notice that some of them look identical but I'll let iceknight explain later what's changed.

Update:

— Started game
— Chose male character, named self Ethan
— Chose a Totodile, didn’t nickname
— Named rival Randy
— Got Pokédex
— Caught a level 2 male Spearow on Route 46, nicknamed Vince (Quirky nature, dunno what that does as far as stats are concerned... can someone shed some light on that for me, please?)
— Captured a level 3 male Sentret on Route 29, nicknamed Jono (Serious nature... a little help, someone?)
— Grinded both Vince and Jono on Route 30 until they reached level 7, am now gonna crush the trainers leading up to Violet City
— Defeated all of the trainers on Routes 30/31
— Healed my Pokémon in the Violet City Pokémon Centre and headed towards Route 32 to level grind some more, hopefully to level 13

Update # 2:

— Being an impatient person, I was only able to get Vince and Jono to level 9 before I went and challenged Sprout Tower
— Defeated Sprout Tower; Vince and Jono are level 11
— Onto the Violet City Gym to crush those Flying type trainers, including Falkner himself
— Falkner’s junior trainers were owned, but I lost to Falkner twice. Am currently on Route 32 grinding to level 15
— Vince and Jono both reached level 13, and handily crushed Falkner’s Pidgey and Pidgeotto (Yeah, I know I said I wanted them at level 15, but my impatience reared its head again). Received the Togepi Egg and am wandering aimlessly back and forth in Violet so it can hatch
— Togepi hatched, nicknamed him King. Have grinded him to level 6, hopefully that’ll be enough for the trainers on Route 32
— Pwned all of the trainers on Route 32, moved onto Union Cave where I kicked Hiker Daniel’s arse as well as a couple of wild Pokémon’s butts. After crushing a Zubat, Jono evolved. However, the game glitched and I had to start over from that patch of grass near Union Cave with a... yep, you guessed it — a level 14 Sentret. Luckily, it didn’t take too long for Jono to evolve again.
— I taught Jono Rock Smash and am still grinding in Union Cave
— Reached Azalea Town and healed my Pokémon

Scyther is at level 17 and you want to be a couple of levels above him to be safe.

Haha yup, 110/105 iirc. Scizor actually is slower than him, though I guess Bullet Punch covers up for that.
BTW, I think you forgot to add me at the front page =P

(Slacking time with my netbook [which is underpowered to play DS games haha] before rehearsal starts.)

I foresee a lot of level grinding due to bugs being.. bugs (and Pokerus of course!).

Quick update...

I beat Whitney after grinding both my Lapras and my Smoochum to level 22 (still wasn't easy...rollout messed up Smoochum, and Lapras barely managed to tank it) and then I BOOKED it to ecruteak, to talk to bill. Got the eevee back in goldenrod, and I caught a ditto. I hatched an eevee egg, since I hate raising pokemon from high levels. I then sent my level 1 eevee over to pearl, and used a rare candy on the snowy route, and evolved it into a glaceon. Sent it back, and now I'm grinding to raise it up...I already am in love heh.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I made a big mistake choosing Smoochum as my egg choice. I mean, I can't get Sneasel anywhere except Mt. Silver, correct? I believe you don't have access there until you have all 16 badges, no? Someone please tell me I'm wrong, lol, otherwise I won't be able to get one I guess.

.EJ
May 16th, 2010, 05:42 PM
Sneasel is only attainable after all 16 badges, you are correct bro.

yomamathecableguy
May 16th, 2010, 05:46 PM
Well, didn't get through much today as my gf was over for the past 6 hours. So I only got to Route 30, but that's fine. :) Cyndaquil is at level 5 still, going to train it solely on Pidgey's to level 8 or 9. The reason for only training on Pidgey's is for the Speed EV's. After that I'll take on my rival, battle my way to Violet, then completely finish EV training my Cyndaquil on Unown's - 252 Attack EV's/252 Sp. Attack EV's. Then I'm going to plow through Falkner and Bugsy, as Cyndaquil will probably be in the high teens, if not the low twenties.

So yeah, those are my plans so far. :) I'll probably play a bit longer before I go to bed.. if I do, I'll update here. ^_^

thought about it, and decided on the psychic type. I can bring in eggs for that, though, right?

You'd be able to get a Magikarp soon after the first badge. :P Plus, you can get a Wooper on Route 32. :)

You can get the Wooper even before you beat the first gym, however you'd have to wait on the Magikarp for right before Union Cave when you get the Old Rod in the Pokemon center. So yeah, just my two cents, if it helps at all. ^_^

May 16th, 2010, 06:30 PM
Well, I think I'm going to try something...

Name:Toxic Potato
Type:Normal
Game:HeartGold

Well, I decided to try and use a ROM... I'm kinda worried it'll crash, but that's what saving is for, right? By the way, I chose Normal, due to the fact that I'd lose 2 party members had I continued with Steel on the ROM. (Steelix and Scizor. I will still be doing a Steel-type playthough after this one (I don't mind in the slightest, since this is a good way to spend my time. Y'know, makes the weeks go faster for me, which is a good thing.), and after I get THE EGGS. It's taking my friend literally forever. :L) So yeah! I'm excited that I finally get to re-do this/do this. Hopefully, the ROM doesn't be stupid and start lagging. (I checked though, and I don't get lag where I normally got lag, so yeah...)

As for my team, I'm already 100% sure I'm using a Dunsparce named Awesome. Because Dunsparce is awesome. :l

So yeah guys, I'll see you in about 5 weeks once I find Dunsparce with the 1% encounter rate in Dark Cave! (Once I get there in the game that is. I'll probably start tomorrow, if not today.)

Just realized i'd have Totodile as my only pokemon for a long time if i did water :(
thought about it, and decided on the psychic type. I can bring in eggs for that, though, right?

You can get Poliwag with an Old Rod on Route 31. I know, because I used one in my Fighting run. But just to let you know, the 5% encounter rate will drive you insane.

yomamathecableguy
May 16th, 2010, 06:36 PM
ah, I didn't even know you could get it on Route 31. I'm pretty sure the encounter rate on 32 is a lot higher than 5%, though. :)
