@sweed: You know how I feel about Piloswine...lmao

Dont even think about using nidoking unless he has sucker punch or megahorn. Alakazam will be a major pain for you because he has Energy Ball. That means Golem, and yes even Quagsire are drastically vulnerable to grass. You could get additions to your team...steelix perhaps?

If Nidoking can survive a Psychic from Alakazam, he can OHKO with Megahorn, but I don't think he could survive.. Haha. Sucker Punch is another option.

BTW, I can't think of any fast ground types atm, other than Dugtrio?

Let NidoKing hold on a Berry that reduce Psychic effectiveness or just use choice scarf to KO alakazam

Ok, for my psychic challenge, you said I could trade in an egg. Instead could I trade the leval five bronzor fresh from Winner's Path from SS to HG (My challenge is on HG)?

emoxy
May 25th, 2010, 06:04 AM
Never used Choice Scarf before, will it allow Nidoking to surpass Alakazam in speed?

I think technically you can't trade in that since the Bronzor would have increased exp, but better let EJ confirm this.

I'm still at home~ Means no HGSS for me. :( Atom can't handle DS games.

I LOVE THE NEW LAYOUT.

I've always wanted to do a Normal one but so many people are doing it.. nah. I think I'll start once I get back my PC though. Kangaskhan ftw.
Flying leaves you with a LOT of choices, Bug is hard (personal experience), and I don't think you have a lot of type coverage for Electric.

Well here's day 3 of my grass challenge.(I think I'm getting through the game too fast....)

Grass Challenge Update 3
-After training my new Exeggcute on route 33 I finally reach Goldenrod City
-After healing my team I immediately head to the Radio Tower and earn myself the Radio Card while also meeting the gym leader Whitney(Most attractive leader ever!!)
-Knowing I'm probably no match for Whitney at this point I head up to Route 35 to get in some extra training
-The Bug Catching Contest just happens to be taking place so I enter and win 1st place with a Pinsir(Won a Sun Stone!)
-Exeggcute Learns Solarbeam(Through TM22)
-Bellsprout evolves into Weepinbell
-Once I finished up my training in the Nat'l Park and Route 36 I decide to go back to the gym and challenge Whitney
-We own all the trainers in the gym and at this point my Pokemon are at pretty good levels
-Vs Whitney! After a rough battle Bayleef eventually defeats Miltank by a late critical hit and I win the Plain Badge!
-Or at least I thought I won it.....Whitney starts to cry and I don't get a badge....
-Oh crap! What now?
-As I try to leave one of the gym trainers informs me that Whitney always cries when she loses and she'll get over it(phew)
-I go back up to Whitney and once she pulls herself together I receive the Plain Badge!
-Now that it's nighttime I head to the Ilex Forest and catch an Oddish!
-Oddish evolves into Gloom and then into Bellossom!
-After training It's time to go to Ecruteak City but before I got there I accidentally KO'd the Sudowoodo that was blocking the way
-I reach Ecruteak City and go into the Pokemon Center where I meet Bill who tells me to stop by his house in Goldenrod City
-So, I backtrack to Bill's house where he gives me an Eevee that he found
-I send Eevee to Platinum to evolve it
-Eevee evolves into Leafeon!
-Currently:Trying to catch Leafeon up with the rest of my team

Eh, I do enjoy this challenge, but for the time being, I just really don't want to play, so I'm honestly not sure whether I'll be returning. (Most likely, just not for awhile.) So yeah, I'm just gonna stop it for now. I'll keep my save until I decide to return. :\ Sorry.

I LOVE THE NEW LAYOUT.

Since Trainer's pokemon are all not EV Trained, There is a high chance a equal lvl Nidoking with alakazam will be able to outspeed it. :)

Yes you still can

how about using chikorita as a starter, catching bellspout, catch hoppip, catch oddish, catch sunflora,and then catch exeggcute.

That's every single Gym but the Normal one.

Water is hard with the 7th and 8th only.
Plus I already started. :D

BUT, we could have a race to see who can beat it first! How 'bout it?

blaQk's Pokémon HGSS Monotype Challenge Journal
Entry: 1

I started my first monotype challenge today on Soul Silver. The type I choose was Dragon. I IV and shiny bred a Gible and Trapinch to transfer to my game to start. These will probably be the only Pokémon I use during this challenge.

So far I have:

Received my starters, Gible and Trapinch
Completed Professor Elm's errand
Caught my first HM slave, Sentret
Completed the Sprout Tower
Trained Gible and Trapinch to levels 11 and 12, respectively
Defeated Falkner
Received the Pokémon egg from Professor Elm's assistant
Received HM 06 (Rock Smash)



Falkner was kind of a pain to beat since Trapinch and Gible wouldn't listen to me, but in the end Gible finished him. I'm just starting Route 32, however, I will soon be in Azalea Town and on to my second badge.

My current team:

http://www.gtsplus.net/files/images/sprites/hgss1fs/328.png
Trapinch ♂
Level: 12
Moveset: Bite | Faint Attack | Sand-Attack

http://www.gtsplus.net/files/images/sprites/hgss1fs/443.png
Gible ♂

Moveset: Dragon Rage | Outrage | Tackle | Sandstorm

Storm Eater you might want to post more details about your adventure to share with everyone.. Like what pokemon you're using etc.

And blaQk, I think you're supposed to hatch the egg yourself so that the OT would be you, and thus the pokemon wouldn't disobey you/gain bonus xp. But how the hell did you get 2 shinies!??!

Well the OT is me, same name, different ID, lol. And I like the disobeying thing actually, gives me limits. Like I said, I bred them to be shiny. ;D *Looks at signature* I have a lot, actually.

Also:

blaQk's Pokémon HGSS Monotype Challenge Journal
Entry: 2

After beating Falkner and leaving Violet City, I headed for Azalea Town.

Quest information:

Completed the Slowpoke Well
Trained my Gible and Trapinch
Beat Bugsy



Bugsy wasn't hard at all. I kept Gible and Trapinch below or at level 20 so they'd obey, so I didn't have any problems. Oh, and Dragon Rage is amazing this early in the game, lol.

My current team:

http://www.gtsplus.net/files/images/sprites/hgss1fs/328.png
Trapinch ♂
Level: 20
Moveset: Bite | Faint Attack | Sand-Attack

Moveset: Dragon Rage | Outrage | Take Down | Sandstorm

blaQk's Pokémon HGSS Monotype Challenge Journal
Entry: 3

Now that I have the Hive badge, I set my sights on Goldenrod City and my third badge.

Quest information:

Battle Silver on my way out of Azalea Town
My Togepi egg hatches and I cry because it has a Timid nature QQ
Caught the two Farfetch'd and received HM 01 (Cut) and made my slave work
Proceeded on into Goldenrod City while training Gible and Trapinch along the way
Picked up my Coin Case, Fashion Case, Radio Card and Bike
Beat Whitney (Her Miltank is rediculous)
Gible evolves
Got my Squirtbottle
Battle and defeat Sudowoodo
Have some fun tag-teaming some twins and hotties
Make my way into Ecruteak City



Gible evolving into Gabite was nice, but not as nice as it will be to have Trapinch evolve. He is seriously lacking some speed do to being a Trapinch (I think he's still below 20 and he has a Jolly nature and 31 speed IVs). :/ Oh well, he doesn't like much more. Now that I'm in Ecruteak City, I've hit a stall point in my game. Since I bought Soul Silver to get the good nature legendary Pokémon, I'm going to be soft-resetting until I get either a Timid Entei or Raikou (I traded over some Master Balls). I'm hoping on an Entei because I caught a Modest Raikou (which isn't horrible) in Heart Gold. It shouldn't take too long though, I hope. :S After I catch one of the nature I want, I'm going after Morty and my fourth badge, and maybe I'll get a Vibrava along the way. ;)

When I thought about playing a Dragon challenge, I was thinking about Extremespeed but I realised I probably won't keep the move anyway.

And I agree with that point, my Farfetch'd went out to tank against Lance's Dragonite's Outrage accidentally, which made the Dragonite confused and hit itself to death.
But it's hard to enforce anyway. And makes the game a little less challenging :)

So there's a way to enforce shiny by IV passing?

Mostly luck on breeding the parents. I have to bred for shiny pokes, hoping they pass on their good IVs. I get lucky every-now-and-then.

Alright, time for an update:

After some consideration, I figured I should challenge Morty
I run to the Ecruteak Gym, and this guy laughs "hohoho" and pushes me out
I walk to the Burned Tower like the man said, and i go inside
I see two men, one in white and one in purple (oo purple mah color ^-^)
I also see three big beasts sitting in the basement.
I walk to see the beasts, and this guy walks infront of me and introduces himself as "Esuine" and said hes been chasing Suicune for ten years (man im only 12)
After his introduction he walks back to his spot, and then i walk towards the ladder and none other than Soul walks up to me
He says that im trying to catch the legendary pokemon to make myself look stronger (which i wasnt >.>) and that it wont help, legendary pokemon only go with people who "vow" to be the strongest, like himself. wait didnt i beat you twice?
Well we battle, and i thrash him, Skelenoir takes out Gastly (who was two levels higher than Skelenoir, Payback ftw ;p)
The rest of the team fell to Alptraum
After beating him, he says he isnt fighting anyone else thats weak, its too much of a hassle....wait didnt i beat you????
Oh well he stomps off, and i climb down the ladder
The Legendary beasts see me and run off, each bouncing out of the room after howling.
The blue one stops in front of me, and howls, staring me down. Then runs off just as Esuine climbs down the ladder.
Dammit Esuine, I was just about to fight it!
Esuine starts rambeling about Suicune again, apparently the blue beast was Suicune, and it seemed to notice my presence, and wanted to challenge me. Esuine says theres more to me than meets the eye (Transformers hahahah)
After this whole ordeal, i leave the Burned Tower, and then i head to Ecruteak Gym
The "hohoho" guy is gone, and im allowed to enter the gym
Damn this place is easy, Skelenoir walks through all the mediums. Payback does wonders till it runs out, then i use Astonish. Skelenoir gains a few levels
I finally reach Morty, the leader who was the guy in purple at the Burned Tower
The Battle Begins...
-Skelenoir uses Payback on the Gastly, almost one-shotting it, then the Gastly kills itself with Curse
--Skelenoir is downed by Haunter#1
---Voodoo comes out and downs Haunter#1 with Shadow Sneak
----Gengar comes out, and i use Shadow Sneak, almost knocking it out, its Sitrus Berry activates, and it Shadowballs my Voodoo to death
-----Alptraum comes out and uses Shadow Punch, downing his Gengar
------Haunter #2 comes out, and gets oneshotted with Sucker Punch. Yay for paper thin defenses
WooT, I got my fourth badge, the Fog Badge!~
After leaving the Gym, i decide that my team needs some serious grinding done to them, especially Skelenoir, only at level 19.. and still having problems downing things 2 levels lower than itself.
So i grind my *** off all night (last night)
After grinding for a few hours, i finish and Skelenoir evolves into Dusklops. Then i give it the Reaper cloth (that came with it from the pokewalker) and i trade it to my friend in Sinnoh, and he trades it back and it has evolved into Dusknoir! =3
After this, i walk through Route 38, all the trainers already beating while grinding
I enter Route 39, and a guy named Baoba steps infront of me, man people like doing this...
We talk about his new safari zone and he gives me his number saying this meeting is more than coincidence, and then runs off.. o-kay
I finish off Route 39 and head to Olivine City, and thats where i am currently

The HM slave thing is up to you. I trust people will do the right thing and not utilize their HM slaves. I don't care if you used it to revive one of your pokemon because frankly I've done that before when I only had Seel. However, I do mind when you start attacking and trying to win a battle with it.

I'll let this one slide though so whatevs. I'm usually pretty lenient but I've been seeing lots of rule-breaking so I'm going to have to start being a little stricter. (I'm not necessarily referring to anyone in particular so relax =)

I destroyed Whitney. :D Scizor killed Clefaory in one hot with Rock Smash, and Miltank with two. :)

I also beat my Rival in Brass Tower! He was easy, but his Bayleef was really annoying, it just kept spamming that healing move.

Scizor is now level 24, and Aron and Prinplup are level 23.

Well Ninjask is more of a baton passer but sure it's fine. Any team will work in-game just as long as you grind up.

My ice Challenge is coming along nicely, though I've been spending the past little while grinding my team up so they can take on the elite four.

I've arrived at the Indigo Plateau, but I plan to grind all of my guys to level 40 before I make my first attempt.

Glaceon, level 36. ( ability is snow cloak, raises evasiveness in a hailstorm) Blizzard, Hail, Ice Beam, and Icy Wind.

Mamoswine, level 38. Mud bomb( soon to be replaced with Earthquake), Ancient Power, Avalanche, and Strength.

Lapras, level 37. Waterfall, Surf, Ice Beam, and Thunderbolt

Jynx, level 36. Psychic, Shadow Ball, Avalanche, and Sing.

Cloyster, Level 37. Clamp, Aurora Beam, Supersonic, and Withdraw.

And my currently in-training Weavile, at level 29, with Faint attack, Thief, Ghost Claw(Shadow claw?) and Screech.

Most of my pokemon's move sets are up for changing. So, we'll see.

Grass Challenge Update 4
-Started in Ecruteak City where I decided to skip the gym for now and do some training on the way to Olivine City
-Cleared all the trainers on Routes 38 and 39 while meeting the Warden of the new Johto Safari Zone, Baoba
-Made it to Olivine City and climb to the top of it's lighthouse to find the gym leader,Jasmine taking care of a sick Ampharos
-Knowing I can't get to Cianwood City without a a Fog Badge and HM03 I head back to Ecruteak City and go into the dance theater
-When I arrive I see a Rocket Grunt causing trouble so I destroyed him and got HM03 as a reward
-After the battle my Exeggcute learns Confusion and I give it a Leaf Stone
-Exeggcute evolves into Exeggcutor!
-Just when I was scheming on how I could win in a ghost gym I got a phone call from my mom saying to go pick something from the PokeMart
-And to my convenience, that something was a Choice Scarf(Raises speed but only allows the use of one attack)
-I equipped my Exeggutor with the Choice Scarf and sweep through all the trainers in the gym on my way to the gym leader, Morty
-Vs Morty! With Exeggcutor's new Choice Scarf as a temporary hold item, he defeats Morty's entire team in one hit and I win the Fog Badge!
-After the battle, I backtrack to Olivine City and catch a Staryu to use as a Surf/Whirlpool HM slave.
-Now that I can surf I decided to head east to Mahogany Town instead of Cianwood City
-I battle some trainers on Route 42 and head straight through Mahogany up to beat some more trainers on Route 43
-I arrive at the Lake of Rage and capture the Red Gyrados
-I meet Lance of the Elite 4 and decide to help him drive Team Rocket out of Mahogany Town
-We clear out their secret base causing them to retreat and I start to head back west towards Cianwood City
-Currently:Surfing Route 41 on the way to Cianwood

Lol, Trapinch wasn't listening and got raped, so I sent in Gabite and his Gengar was faster, somehow, and he was practically OHKOing Gabite, so after he knocked him out I sent in Sentret, revived Gabite, and healed him up, then Defense Curled (I had no attack moves that would hit) Sentret until Gengar ran outta PP on all moves, cause if I would have switched in Gabite, it all would have started over, lol.

Just beat Morty. His Haunters and Gastly were easy, but his Gengar was annoying when it put Scizor to sleep. But OpalFruits pulled through for me with Pursuit and Bullet Punch.

Scizor and Prinplup are level 27, Aron is level 26.

Username: Legendarian Mistress
Version: Heart Gold
Type: Bug
Team: Butterfree, Parasect, Forretress, Armaldo + Ninjask

Update:

— Started game
— Chose male character, named self Benny
— Chose a Totodile, nicknamed Croc
— Got the PokéGear and changed the theme to the fifth background
— Got Professor Elm's number
— "Croc doesn't seem used to its own name yet." Seriously, it is a male Pokémon, so they should call them by gender, not it
— Let’s go into the wild beyond, huh Croc?

TEAM:

Croc/Totodile
Male/level 5
— Scratch
— Leer


Update # 2:

— Got the Running Shoes and Map Card from the old guy in Cherrygrove
— By the time I reached Mr. Pokémon’s house, Croc was at level 7
— Obtained the Mystery/Togepi Egg that I have to return to Professor Elm. Just WHY do I have to return it? Why can’t I hatch it myself, without a researcher interfering?
— I exit Mr. Pokémon’s house, get a call from aforementioned Professor about Giovanni’s son stealing Chikorita, says I have to come back immediately
— So I make the journey back to Cherrygrove where I heal and then get assaulted by the former TR Leader’s son
— Beat the crap outta him, proceed onto New Bark Town where I hand the Egg over to Professor Elm (against my will, mind you)
— I go home and decline mum’s offer to save my money
— Then I head west to Route 29 where I have Lyra shove a “How to catch Pokémon” lesson up my butt
— Onto Route 30 where I can FINALLY catch myself a female Caterpie!!
— Searched for a female Caterpie, ending up finding one at level 3!! Nicknamed her Orchard
— Returned to Cherrygrove to heal. Nurse Joy asked me if I would like her to heal my partners... I’m like “Yeah, what do you think I’m here for?!” She heals Orchard and Croc. Will now go back to Route 30 to grind till Orchard evolves into Butterfree

TEAM:

Orchard/Caterpie (Serious nature)
Female/level 3
— Tackle
— String Shot

Note: I searched for an hour on Wednesday looking for a Docile natured female Caterpie, but my search was in vain. I wasted a lot of balls too. Not good. Also, EJ, will edit in pictures later if that's okay.

-went home. crashed on the couch
-mom gave me stuff. yaaaaaaay[/sarcasm]
--2 hours later--
-mom... making me go places... this better be quick...
-Ow! stupid piece of crap... CONTROL UR POKEMANZ!!!!
-"Y HALO THAR!" ummm... hi? "Take this pokemanz and go visit this guy!" no. "WELL THX" i said n-- oh screw it. fine.
--picked Totodile. named after myself--
-i hate this world. seriously, WTH (heck) is up with this place?

Grass Challenge Update 5


After surfing for a while I arrive in Cianwood City to challenge the next gym
Once again I easily clear out all of the trainers in the gym and work my way toward the gym leader
Bayleef evolves into Meganium!
Meganium learns Petal Dance!

Vs Chuck! Chuck's Double Team/Focus Punch combo was no match for my new Meganium as Petal Dance took out Primeape in two hits. In the end Leafeon defeats Poliwrath and I win the Storm Badge!
Once I left the gym Chuck's wife gives me HM02(Fly) as a reward for defeating Chuck(Luckily I already caught a Hoothoot a while back)
Now that the gym is out of the way, I pick up the medicine for Jasmine's Ampharos and head to the northern area of Cianwood where I meet Suicune and Eusine again.
Suicune appears to have chosen me which makes Eusine challenge me to a battle
I defeat Eusine and he continues to follow Suicune(STALKER!!!)
Then I fly back to Olivine City to deliver the SecretPotion to Jasmine
With Amphy feeling better again Jasmine happily returns to the gym
Vs Jasmine! Leafeon easily takes care of her two Magnemite in one hit with dig but things get challenging when she calls on her Steelix. Steelix defeats my Leafeon, Bellossom, and Weepinbell before Meganium defeats Steelix with a Petal Dance and helps me earn my sixth gym badge
Currently preparing for the 7th gym

Alright I'm back again with my final update of the Johto League at the halfway point of the challenge

Grass Challenge Update 6


Started at Mahogany Town gym where after struggling for almost an hour against the ice type trainers I made it to Pryce
Lost to Pryce four times in a row and decided to leave and do some extra training
Vs Pryce! After the previous training session, I returned to the gym for my fifth rematch against Pryce. Meganium easily knocks out Seel but is then defeated by Piloswine in a close battle. I then send out my Leafeon who OHKO's Piloswine but is eventually KO'd by Dewgong. With Dewgong having the Speed advantage over my remaining team, Weepinbell and Bellossom fall to Pryce's Dewgong which leaves me with only Exeggutor. Exeggutor manages to survive 2 Ice Shard attacks and defeats Dewgong with SolarBeam and I earn my 7th badge!
After defeating Pryce I get a call from Prof. Elm that Team Rocket may be up to no good in Goldenrod City So I decide to check it out
I get to Goldenrod City, clear out Team Rocket and defeat their leading Executive, Archer
Now that Team Rocket is once again disbanded, I head back west onto Route 44 where I start to search for my final team member
After searching for about 5 mins. I ran into Tangela, but this Tangela was not a regular Tangela but a shiny one!
I capture Tangela and train it until it learns Ancient Power
Tangela evolves into Tangrowth!
Weepinbell evolves into Victreebell!
I then make my way through the Ice Path and into Blackthorn City where I head straight to the gym
Vs Clair! The final gym of Johto actually turned out easier than I thought it would be. Tangrowth defeats Clair's Gyarados, and 2 Dragonairs before finaly being KO'd by Kingdra. Eventually, Kingdra is defeated by Meganium and after taking the Dragon Den challenge I earned my Rising Badge!
I battle the Kimono girls who then lead me to Lugia who I then captured!
Now that the main Johto quest is over, it's time to head to the Pokemon League!
I cleared out Route 26 and 27 and met up with my Rival in Victory Road. I defeat my Rival and his Typhlosion and head into the Pokemon League Gate
Currently preparing the the Pokemon League!

Woah, never thought about that. I can't trade (emulator), hmm.. Maybe some egg moves will help (and I have to hack to get that too.. I don't want to hahaha)

MY GOD 3000 P FOR THAT DUSK STONE?!
Can I do the date change trick?

I believe Shadow Ball would kill the 2 fossils too lol. Trade a Dusk Stone over from DPPt? I think it's easier to get from there.

I got a Kangaskhan as well.

She's pretty close to learning outrage.

OUTRAGE!!!!!! My only motivation to do Normal challenge. Grrr...

I'm in Chucks gym, and my Aron evolved into a sexy looking Lairon! :D Will be fighting good ol' Chuckie soon. ;)

I still remember when I used to let my Aggron learn Surf/Thunderbolt/Dragon Claw.. Looks like Dragon Claw is actually useful to some extent since Gen4. XD

WOW. Both female Dusclops and Shuppet have Adamant Nature. I am really happy because they both got benefit from that nature. Now I just need to get second place in the Bug Catching contest! After that,I'll need to grind ~2500 Pokeathlon points more to get Dusk Stone and Heart Scale (I won't get BP for every move I need...

Heart Scale for?

I don't really feel motivated anymore to do this challenge after my Normal type challenge ended.

I'm going to have to end my challenge, sorry guys...maybe when I feel more motivated I'll join again.

Haha give yourself a break, that's what I'm doing now, there are other things that you can do besides indulging yourself in pokemon fever ;D

New396, how's Leafeon? I thought of using it in my last few DPPt playthroughs, but seeing as it only learns Leaf Blade at a VERY PAINFUL Level 78, and that it doesn't have a lot of move coverage (am I right?), I chose not to use it.

I won't post a full update for this one but I just beat the E4 and I'm on my way to Kanto!

http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/2638/hni0005w.jpg
This was taken on my DSI while playing on the DS Lite so sorry for the quality

New396, how's Leafeon? I thought of using it in my last few DPPt playthroughs, but seeing as it only learns Leaf Blade at a VERY PAINFUL Level 78, and that it doesn't have a lot of move coverage (am I right?), I chose not to use it.Yea Leafeon can be a handful but since it has naughty nature and an attack over 150 right now, Razor Leaf usually gets the job done. It didn't help out much in the E4 though


I'll be taking a break for now and have my first post from Kanto on Sunday.With this challenge getting closer to ending I've been considering starting a new one with either Steel,Ground,or Dragon type.

That has always been the problem - Grass moves suck in E4. ><

I'm thinking of Rock type too.. I can get Rock/Grass Rock/Water Rock/Fire Rock/Flying and blah blah blah everything you can think of. So colorful =P

WooT, Update timez before i head off to bed.

Reached Olivine after more grinding, god im a grinding freak >.>"
Walked into town, and i seen Soul walk out of the cities Gym, and he says shes not there, and shes at the lighthouse caring for a sick pokemon.. Hes an a** btw
*Soul I meant
After climbing the Lighthouse, stomping out any resistances that came before me
I find Jasmine, the Leader of Olivine City.
Shes caring for her sick Ampharos, and asks me to go across the sea to get medince from Cianwood. I accept and i leave, running right to the Ocean
I crush all the poor swimmers pokemon, no one even felt the presence of my awesome Ghosts >=D
I reach Cianwood easily
To streach out my legs, i walk around town and head north and..
HOLY FU- SUICUNE! )#(#*%( MUST CATCH
...Aww he ran away >=(
Esuine comes up to me out of no where. i blame Esuine for scaring Suicune...
He suddenly challenges me to a battle to gain Suicune's respect
After that he leaves in a huff and i head back into town and i find that elusive pharmacy, and i go in
The guy gives me his most powerful "medicine"...
Afterwards i see a gym, and it intrigues me.
I decide to take the challenge and i charge in, to find the leader under a waterfall....
I hope he doesnt drown (atleast till i beat his pokemon into the ground and take the badge from him >=D)
I notice a switch to turn off the waterfall, so i head up, beating down the blackbelts without much problem, thank god for immunities.
I get to the top and i turn off the water, then i run back down and challenge the chubby leader, Chucky!
The battle starts, Chucky VS. Tobias~!
--I send out Alptraum against his Primeape.
---Primape gets downed in one blast of Thunderbolt
----He sends out his Poliwrath, same thing as Primeape...one hit of Thunderbolt.
Did i just wind a Gym Battle with two attacks?...
Yup, cause i just got me badge :cer_boogie:
I walk out of the Gym, alittle disappointed at how easy it was..
Chucks wife gives me HMfly for beating her husband, such a nice lady.
alas..i dont have a pokemon with fly D=<
So i surf all the way back to Olivine, grinding alittle as i go, Voodoo evolves during said grinding.
Got to Olivine, ran right to the Lighthouse and gave Amphy the medicine, it worked wonders =D
Jasmine went back to the gym, and i headed there aswell
I get to Jasmine and we talk alittle, the it gets serious. I challenge her, and she accepts.
Jasmine VS. Tobias~!
Jasmine sends out a Magnemite, thus dubbed Magnemite #1. I send out Voodoo
-Voodoo burns magnemite with Will-O-Wisp, and then tries to take it out with Faint attack, but it had paralyzed me, and Parahax sucks =X
--Voodoo faints from getting thunderbolted to oblivion
---I send out Alptraum, and he takes out Magnemite #1 with a well placed Focus Blast
----She sends out her beast of a Steelix, and it gets one shotted with Focus Blast
-----She sends out Magnemite #2, and I use my trust Focus Blast
FU---------------!
Focus Blast missed, and i get thunderbolted, and the paralyzed >.>"
My next FB hits though and i win :cer_boogie:
Afterwards, i head back to Violet City, and the route close to it, and i catch a Hoothoot, for Fly hm slavery.
Oh btw, Baoba called me telling me that the safari zone is open, so i head there, but i pass by the Cliff Cave, and in it i find...
Misdreavus! i quickly catch it and add it to my team roster =D Nicknamed Mori, from the Latin phrase "Memento Mori" meaning: "remember that you will die".
I Fly to Mahogany Town, which i had previously visited during a grinding session, and i head north towards the Lake of Rage, no one offers a good challenge
I find a Red Gyarados, and in my fit of excitement, i knock it out =X
I surf back to shore and i see a red haired guy with a dragonite =O
After talking with "Lance" i go to Mahogany town to help him with what he asked, and we find the Rockets base, and then systematically destroy it =D
After the whole base defeating and what not, i head to the Mahogany Gym and i take down all the Lackies with ease, Thunderbolt Alptraum ftw =D
I find Pryce at the back and challenge him, he accepts >=D
Pryce VS. Tobias~!
-Pryce sends out Seel, i try a focus blast for the hell of it, and that was a stupid move.. damn thing missed =X
-it gets off a hail, and then i thunderbolt it to death =X
-He sends out Piloswine, and i figure i should set up on him, so i send out Skelenoir, who hasnt received alot of action since grinding...
-I try Will-O-Wisp..and it misses!!!!!!!!!!oneone $()^$*I^ FU----
-He gets off a Blizzard, but Skelenoir is a tank =D
-I try Will-O-Wisp again... AND IT MISSES AGAIN!
Oh come on can i be any more unlucky?
-I finally say screw it, after being blasted by another Blizzard, i use Disable, to get rid of it. AND IT FAILS?!
Skelenoir gets taken out by an Ice Fang after that =X
utter waste sending Skelenoir out..
-Sends out Gengar, and i FB him again, actually hitting him, and i one shot him.
-Thunderbolts kill Dewgong too ya know =D
WooT, i gotz the badge, im on a roll =)
I walk outside, feeling triumphant, and then i get a call from Elm, saying something about Goldenrod radio tower, i guess thats where im going next....

I think it's not too hard to get Heart Scales by rocksmashing, but I have only gotten one or two. I remember game speed slowing down to 10% when I play Pokethalon so don't. (I'm on no$ too.)

And why does your team have a plethora of Dream Eaters without Hypnosis o.o hahaha.
Psychic, yes.

Hey, I was wondering something. If I wanted to use only one Pokemon, say a Tauros, could I still apply for a Normal Monotype Challenge? Because I was planning on doing so after this one, so I was wondering if it counted.

I mean, you ARE only using one type, right? xD

May 28th, 2010, 11:10 AM

I thought that much, was just wondering if it would be allowed. xD

You don't mind me only using 3 Pokemon for my Steel Pokemon? It's just that all three are at level 40 now, and I don't want to train up another :p

Kurumi
May 28th, 2010, 11:31 AM
I have a strategy for Red... Shedinja will be the first pokemon,I'll use the Sunny Day. Afterwards I'll swap for Haunter/Dusclops/Banette depending on Pokemon (Charizard/Snorlax) Eliminate those two and just win easily. That's why I'll leave Shedinja on level 30. 40 PP False Swipe,15 PP Shadow Claw... No evasion-upping moves,and I still have Mind Reader. Now I just need strong Haunter and strong Banette/Dusclops.
Btw Surge loves his Electrode. Wasted three Restores on it :P

Steel ftw. After so many pokemon playthroughs, I realised that Steel is my favourite type.. :D The plethora of resistances, especially Psychic, makes it tank very well. I played Fire Red these few days and my underleveled Steelix managed to take out Agatha (2ndround) on its own. :D Gengar Psychic doing 40 damage is pure awesome.

Oh, I definitley agree! After this playthrough an how much fun it's been, I can safely say Steel is up there as one of my favorite types. :)

Ooh, monotype challenges I find are much harder than Solo Runs, actually! Because usually you get very overleveled with Solo runs, but with monotype you don't.

I also understand your pain. xD I always want to do so many challenges, I find it really hard to choose which one. xD Dark would deffo be a fun to monotype though!

I hate luck of computer. 100% acc with 10% acc move is cool.

May 29th, 2010, 07:20 AM
Well I need to take down Charizard and Snorlax only,so I need two overleveled pokemon,that's all. Well always when I tried to hit with some Rock-type move (when I was doing rock-monotype) I could miss three times in a row. Getting three Stone Edges in a row is not cool.
10% is just my lack of luck. Blue lies and cries,baby!

Hey, would it be possible to restart the whole thing and use a different monotype? I've got the urge to use a Jumpluff. :)

EDIT: Also quick question, are you allowed to use pre-volutions that differ from your chosen type. For example, if you're doing Flying Mono-type, are you allowed to use a Scizor, being as Scyther is part flying?

Kurumi
May 29th, 2010, 10:27 AM
If I recall correctly You can use HM slaves just to revive? If so,I defeated Red. Thanks to confusion hax (replaced Dream Eater on Haunter with Swagger :P) Killed Charizard and Snorlax thanks to it,poison and Sludge Bomb. Got Bulbasaur and Torchic. I'll update everything later,see ya!

Anyhoo's, the log.
Introduction-The Road of Dreams!


-Huh what? This hour? Woken up? I do possess the rare ability of Insomnia though...
-Professor Oak!!! He has a Marill!
-Hold on, let me check...yes, I'm a boy.
-Well, I'm Joseph. Nice to meet you!
-Message from Lyra! 'I love POKéMON!'. Well so do I, but you don't see me proclaiming my love, do you?
-Mum gives me a bag! Sweet! Mum gives me my Trainer Card! I look goood! I can save what I do! Awesome! And...something else. Huh? Oh sweet I can customize...whatever I can customize!
-Geez, what is with everyone and Marill today! First Oak, now freakin' Lyra!
-Who is that guy outside...and how rude!
-Professor Elm! I would have given him some 'respect' but he's not 'hip' enough for it. Anyhoo, he gets a mail from a Mr. Pokemon and let's me choose a rare Pokémon! Sweet!
-As much as I want to choose a Totodile for it's sheer awesomeness, I want to have the advantage when catching my first water Pokemon. So Chikorita! I choose you!
-After getting a female Chikorita and naming it Evora, Elm sends me off. This random dude stops me but gives me 5 Potions! Not bad dude...not bad. I walk out to see Lyra, who calls Evora cute. God knows what she would have done if I picked Totodile. I talk to Mum to let her know where I'm going. She gives me my Pokégear and off I go! Of course she saves my money. Gotta have a reserve right?

Current Team:

Chikorita (F)

Second Update


Entered Union Cave
Trained level 7 Machop to 14 en route to Azalea.
Went into town to heal, met Kurt who makes pokeballs who was on his way to the slowpoke well, followed him down.
Climbed down a ladder met an injured Kurt at the base of the well.
Kurt, whom I had just met, told me to attack some gangster people named "Team Rocket".
The first of these "Team Rocket" goons was a man I had seen standing at the top of the well. Apparently, an old man rushing at him had startled him so much that he stumbled back into the well.
This guy had 2 rattatta. Cake. Machop leveled to 15.
The next Rocket member was a woman, her pokemon were easy for Poliwag and Machop to take out.
The last thug had a rattatta and 2 zubats, Machop had an easyish time with them and leveled to 16!
Finally, Proton. I took out both of his pokemon with my poliwag, and Poliwag grew to 14! Kurt, who had apparently gotten better from falling down a deep well, rushed in to congratulated me.
Back in town, I decided to take down the gym. Machop fought his way to level 17 but was poisoned by a Paras' Effect Spore, and I had to heal him at the PokeCenter.
Decided to pick up some potions and antidotes before moving on with the gym.
Bugsy's Scyther defeated me, but I got his Metapod down before that and Machop grew to level 18!
As I was leaving town to go train on a route, my rival snuck up on me. Defeating his Ghastly my Poliwag grew to 15, and he destroyed everything else. =/
The *ahem* third time I fought him my Machop leveled to 19 off his Ghastly and learned Seismic Toss, which allowed me to easily defeat his Bayleef and Zubat
I did the Farfetch'd thing to get cut, meanwhile finding a revive and leveling Machop to 20. Togepi also hatched.
The next try on Bugsy was easy, Seismic Toss really won it. Machop hit 21.
Taught Totodile cut, taught poliwag headbutt, and helped the kimono lady get out of the forest.
Trained Poliwag to 17 on some trainers on route 34, then ran into Lyra who introduced me to her grandparents.
Took the radio quiz, got my radio card and some crazy pink haired chick ran off into the gym.
Following her I entered the Goldenrod Gym to find some older girls who apparently thought I was hot stuff, I beat their pokemon to get past them getting Poliwag to 18 and Machop to 22 (replaced Focus Energy with Revenge).
I caught up to "Whitney" who happened to be the gym leader.
Her Clefairy defeated my Poliwag with a metronomed Dragon Rage but my Machop was able to easily defeat the Clefairy and her Miltank (and you guys think Whitney is the hardest gym leader... :P).
Afterward I went to the flower shop and got a squirt bottle and headed off toward Ecruteak.
After facing several trainers my Poliwag hit level 21 and fainted.
My Machop took over fighting and leveling and I was forced into 2 double battles, finally leveling him to 25, but in the process Totodile hit 18 and evolved (I didn't use him to fight).
Once I made it to Ecruteak I went straight to the PokeCenter where I met Bill.
Went out to Route 42, headbutted a couple of trees and found a level 13 Heracross! I caught without too much trouble.
Entered Mt Mortar so I could leave on the other end, found a level 15 Mankey in the grass nearby!
Went back to Ecruteak, went to Burned tower to fight my rival. I got really lucky when it was down to just my new Mankey and his Gastly that was at about 5 hp. The dumb AI used curse on itself and I won Mankey grew to 16! :P
Trained my Machop to 28 and evolved him, trained my Poliwag to 25 and evolved him, trained him to 26 after that, and trained my Heracross to 16.
Made my first attempt on Morty after listening to his story about how he's going to be visited by a magical rainbow pokemon, and failed on his last pokemon.
Did some research and ran back to the Pokeathlon Dome to compete.
After a couple of attempts I managed to get first in every event easily and quickly got 2500 points.
"Waited" until Wednesday and bought a Water Stone, evolving Poliwhirl to Poliwrath!
Went back to Ecruteak and fought Morty again. Did even worse, but leveled Poliwrath to 27.
Bought some potions/revives and tried again. Poliwrath won and hit 28 in the process (didn't even get touched!).
Heard a commotion inside the dance studio and found a Rocket grunt harassing a kimono girl. It was a very easy win. As I was leaving another old man approached me and gave me something. It happened to be HM03 surf!
Gave surf to Poliwrath replacing bubblebeam.
Left Ecruteak, taking my first surfing trip across the water on route 42. Fought a fisherman and his quilfish, which leveled Machoke to 29.
Bypassed Mahogany Town, heading up to Route 43 en route to the Lake of Rage, trained a bit before getting there, Poliwrath to 30.
Surfed to Red Gyarados Machoke defeated it and I got a Red Scale.
Met Lance who asked me to help him back in Mahogany, so I followed him.
Stopped at the pokecenter before heading into the "Gift Shop".
Caught Lance finishing off one of the workers there. He pushed aside something and found a secret stairway, which we went down.
When I had walked down the stairs, Lance was no where in sight. I walked forward accidently setting off an alarm, which caused a couple Team Rocket Grunts to come to investigate the noise, they challenged me back to back, but they sucked and I won easily.
The last one warned me that there were security cameras in the statues, but I decided I wanted to take down the Team Rocket members there, so I walked into every one of the statues for extra training.
After the second set of battles I figured out that they were all the same "event", which is sad programming, oh well.
Training on the Rocket guards and a Rocket scientist got my Machoke to 30 Heracross to 19 and Mankey to 17. I found a stairwell that led downstairs and saw Lance who healed my pokemon (I had just gone up to heal my pokemon too, why did I forget this part).
A couple more guards were scattered through the lower area and I trained on those. No levels, but I found another stairwell that I met Lance at the bottom of.
That floor yielded both passwords that I needed and leveled my Machoke to 31 and Hercross to 20. :)
The next floor only had one guy in it, but the next floor after that had the boss' room in it. Petrel, who pretended to be Giovanni, was in there alone and was extremely easy to defeat and earned Hercross level 21.
The door was opened, and I was jumped by two rocket members, one of them was named Ariana and was a Rocket boss. Luckily for me, Lance showed up and helped me defeat them. Unfortunately to turn the maching off we had to defeat some innocent electrode. =/
Fortunately that meant experience, Heracross grew to level 22 and Machoke grew to 32. Afterward Lance gave me HM05 Whirlpool.
All there was left to do in Mahogany was to take down the gym. The first two gym trainers were easy and leveled Heracross to 23.
The next room's trainers posed a little more of a problem, but I muscled through them.
Next came Pryce, whom I lost to the first try because I accidently started the battle hurt with no pp in my best fight moves on machoke and heracross. The second time was a very easy win though earning machoke level 33.
My team:

Machoke
Level 33
Moves:
Seismic Toss
Foresight
Submission
Karate Chop

Poliwrath
Level 31
Moves:
Body Slam
Headbutt
Hypnosis
Surf

I think I skipped some things because Pryce is the 7th gym leader. So, I'll be playing more today and hopefully I'll play what I skipped.

On another note, I wish I could do pictures, I'll update this post and my last with pictures when I can. :)

Reaching for the Zeyphr! 

I'm on the highway to hell! Suddenly though, Elm stops me, calling me and then walking over to where I am to exchange numbers. Seriously? I'm what, 10?

Anyway, NOW I'm on the highway to hell, or rather, Route 29. I hear Wooper's come out at night at Route 32, my first Water Pokemon, so I gotta hurry. Of course, a darn Hoothoot comes out ready to stop me. Through mutiple tackles, Evora will beast that thing.

I arrived at Cherrygrove, where this man takes me on an unofficial tour, explaining each building. One thing that particulary catches my eye is the big, blue sea. Maybe I can catch some good pokemon in there. He ends the tour and gives me the SHOES HE'S JUST BEEN WEARING?!?!

Nah, just joshing. He gives me fresh Running shoes. Awesome!

I then leave to Mr. Pokemon's house and it turns out I was being stalked by the very same guy. What is it with old people? Anyway, he gave me a map which is helpful? Hmm.

On my way to Mr Pokemon's house is a Rattata, which Evora mercilessly kills. Consequently, she levels up and learns Razor Leaf. Something useful! Another Hoothoot comes and I own that too with many Tackles. I pick up a potion and see this nice house. I walk past this house and the guy starts yelling because I left him alone? People make no sense! He gives me an Apricorn Box and I'm like, come on. Seriously?

I do notice the most epic of battles which stops me getting to Violet City, which is just as well as I need to go the other way. Yet another Hoothoot. Great. Die. Done? Good. Level 7! Awesome! Another Hoothoot. I'm sure you're getting tired of this...it got merked. I pick up a nearby Antidote, all is well.

Continuing, I get a Pnk Apricorn and see Mr. Pokemon for the first time, a young man with a, I kid you not, fedora. He's cool. No sarcasm there. Whose the other guy though...

After getting this Egg, the other guy reveals himself to be Professor Oak, who gives me my very own Pokedex! Also, he gets my number...sigh.

After Oak leaves, followed by me I get a call from Elm saying something bad has happened! I run back, eager to help but...a red haired boy stops me. The same guy who was lurking! Man, this guy is a jerk. We battle, his advantageous Cyndaquil vs Evora and eventually I win through...skill. He taunts and mocks me, petty insults for when I have won. He runs off, though I know who that boy is...

At this point I'm done trying to kill Hoothoot's now I run. After I obtain a Grn Apricorn I rune back to New bark. Back at the lab it appears that one of Elm's pokemon has been stolen! Who could have...wait...was it? 

For a moment I'm blamed, however Lyra comes to my rescue. 
I remember that kid! He was called Zero!

After all is cleared up, Elm is startled at my new bling. Or in professor terms, Pokedex. I give him the Egg and he informs me of the Gym challenge. Intriguing.

With that done, I tell my mum I'll be off on a big journey. She offers to save money and I say yeah sure. Can't hurt right?

Just outside New Bark Lyra shows me how to catch a pokemon, failing the first time, badly. However she captures a blinking Rattata. She does give me 5 poke balls, so, meh. Cool.

I'm running, really running to get that Wooper, running from wild Hoothoot's and battling trainers to get there. I beat Joey's Rattata, Mikey's Pidgey and Rattata, Don's two Caterpies and Wade's three Caterpies and Weedle. WDe and Joey give me their numbers. Normal people at last! I also get a potion, a pokeball and a Blk Apricorn. Evora grows to level 10, so cool.

Lyra comes round to exclaim her stalkingness, but she does give me a Vs. Recorder, which is good for something I guess.

Upon entering Violet City my mind was blown at it's beauty. However, no time to waste, must get a Wooper! I heal up Evora, then set about Wooper.

After a few Ekans, Zubat and some Mareep, I finally caught one! With the power to absorb water too. Epic win!

I rest here tonight, intent on training Mudskipper up for the upcoming gym battle...



Current Team:

Chikorita (F)@Evora
Level 10
Tackle
Growl
Razor Leaf
Poison Powder

Wooper (M)@Mudskipper
Water gun
Tail Whip
Mud Sport

I will add photos and tidy this up in due time.

Am I too late to join up?

If not count me in, though undecided on an actual type...

EDIT: I decided on Poison

Name: Vicousvirus
Type: Poison
Version: Soul Silver

Team: Gengar without a doubt. Nidoking and Qwilfish are pretty certain too. I may get a Roserade or Venusaur, and either Toxicroak, Drapion, Crobat or Weezing. Heck, maybe even an Arbok.

Where art thou poisonous Pokemon?

-Begun adventure
-Noted to Oak I was a boy
-Named myself Venom
-Woke up in my house

Yawn...where am I? My house! Ok. What's on my computer? A message 
from Lyra! She loves Pokemon! Ok.

What's this? My bag, trainer card, save feature and options? Cool.

I walk out where I'm vicously attacked by a Marill. I swear, everyone has Marill. Oak had one in my dream. Eh, so be it.

There is a guy who is looking inside the lab. Suspicous much? Anyway I go in and talk to Professor Elm who requests I meet a 'Mr. Pokemon'. Naturally I decline, ending my adventure there and then.

However, I reconsidered when Elm threw in a FREE pokemon in the deal.
So I picked this mean crocodile thing and gave it a new name. Whilst walking out I get 5 potions off some guy. Awesome.

Outside, Lyra is waiting, calling my pet cute. Seriously...Anyway, I tell my mum I'm off on an extended period of time. She calls my pokemon cute. It's a f***ing alligator. They ain't cute. She gives me my pokegear which makes up for it I suppose...after being told how to use the phone...jesus.

FINALLY, I leave for Route 29. Well, would have been, except Elm requests that we exchange numbers. After slaying some Pidgey and Sentret I arrive in Cherrygrove Cify, and was given a tour by an old man on everywhere, just before getting some Running shoes. Well now I can run? Great.

Whilst leaving to Route 30 the very same guy comes up to give me map of Johto. Ok, thanks, bye now! Moving along, I enter a house and is it? No! A randomers house, who just so happens to give me an Apricorn box. One more thing to have around. This day is going well!

Picking the nearby Apricorn and potion I make my way to Mr. Pokemons house, ignoring an 'epic battle'.  I get an antidote, which is pointless as I've decided on a Poison themed team. I kill more Pidgey's and Totodile is now level 7. Good enough to defend when trying to catch pokemon. He alo learns Water Gun. Cool.

I get a Pnk Apricorn and enter a house nearby.

Mr Pokemon! This is it! I get a swanky egg to go with everything else I have. Sweet. This old guy, named Oak, starts yapping about me and Totodile. But he does give me a pokedex! And then gets my number.

Outside I'm ordered to come back to New Bark by Elm, who is in shock. Wtf happened then? I rush back to Route 29. And I stop. Who is that person? 

He snides my choice of pomemon and then sends out a Chikorita. Seriously. Are you kidding? 

Through sheer strength Totodile gets through and beasts that Chikorita, hitting it critically. The guy storms off, shoving me out the way. I do get his name, Zero. Yeah, zero manners. He complains over his name being revealed.
 
I snag an Apricorn and another potion and kill some more Sentrets to get Totodile to level 8. He learns the useless Rage though.

At the lab I am accused of theft by the police. I'm just about to kill Elm when Lyra comes to my rescue. After being interviewed the police walk out. Elm comments on the Mystery Egg and is startled by my earning of a pokedex. Gee, thanks. He informs me of the Gym challenge which sounds intriguing to say the least. I have decided, I will become the Pokemon Champion. And I will do it with the MIGHT OF POISON POKEMON!

End Log

Team

Termigator, the Docile Totodile
Level 8
-Scratch
-Leer
-Water Gun
-Rage

Will be a HM Slave.

I'll update later when all the poison pokemon come out to play :)

All right, since it's a bit later where I am, I'm going to do an update.

Over the Rainbow!

After being almost framed for theft, (which I did not do, I'm not that evil), I go to my mum to tell her I won't ever be seeing her ever again. She offers to save my money and I say, yeah sure. Gotta be safe right?

Off on my epic journey of epicness, I leave to Route 29 and after that, Violet City. Lyra is there with her Marill again! She shows me how to catch a pokemon and assumes I couldn't see what was going on. I clearly could. Anyway I witness her taking forevre to catch a stupid Rattata, mentally laughing at her weak Marill. She does give me 5 pokeballs. I take back my laughing. Nah who am I kidding?

Yet more Sentret and Pidgey though it's becoming close to night which means that both Zubat and Gastly come out. Not sure if I want a Crobat, but I really want a Gengar. Termigator, the Totodile grows to level 9 and continues to slaughter all those who stands in his way.

Healing up at Cherrygrove, I press onwards towards Violet City, beating many trainers on the way, defeating Joey and Mikey, . Pah, those Ratatta, Pidgey and puny bugs were no match for Termigator. Who as it happened, terminated every single one of their pokemon. I got Termigator to level 10 too. When will I get my Gastly? I get Joey's number, who wishes to call me when his Ratatta is a bit better.

Route 31 now and close to Violet city. Speaking of close, Termigator is close to fainting. LIVE I SAY, LIVE! Ooh a potion. I don't bother using it. I have no love for a pokemon that lacks the corruption of venom inside their bloodstream. pick up a Blk Apricorn and own Wade and his many bugs in the process. Termigator grows to level 11 too. Great, just f-ing great. I get his number and he promises to give me stuff that he finds. Yeah, you better, I beasted your lil a**. Picking up a nearby pokeball I travel to Violet city. A Bellsprout appears but I run away. All of a sudden Joey calls me! Wtf dude? I fought you five seconds ago! I ignore and travel to Violet City.

Almost there, Lyra stops me, wondering how I got past her. Well, to be honest, I don't go playing about with pokemon Lyra, I just get the job done, no questions asked. She gives me a Vs. Recorder, which will be handy in taking on fellow trainers. She claims she won't let me pass her again, but I beg to differ. I take a quick nap as I wait for the sun to set...

Termigator the Docile Totodile

Still a HM Slave, only growing levels due to wanting to get some defence when catching that Gastly, not to mention my only pokemon. Hmm. I guess I could have picked up that Bellsprout. Too late now.

Are we allowed to use the GTS for trading in our challenges?

If so, when I see one I'm going to nab a Bulbasaur and use it my my playthrough.

Update #3!

Backtracked to head out to Olivine City.
Trained on the route. Heracross 26, Mankey 21.
Found Drain Punch.
Made it to Olivine where I was stopped by my rival.
Healed my pokemon and went to the Lighthouse trained on my way up. Mankey 25.
Headed out to Cianwood City, trained on the water route. Mankey hit 28 and evolved to Primeape. Heracross hit 27. Croconaw hit 19 when I was using him to revive Mankey.
Finally made it to Cianwood and promptly hit the pokecenter for some healing.
Went to the Pharmacy and got SecretPotion to save the lighthouse pokemon.
Went up north and found Suicune, and Eusine challenged me to a battle. I beat him, and Heracross hit 28.
Took down all of Cianwood's gym trainers easy, and Heracross leveled to 29.
Chuck, the leader, was harder, but I managed to defeat him, and got Focus Punch as a reward, which I taught to Poliwrath.
I left the gym and a woman gave me the HM Fly! I needed a new HM slave.
On my way back to the mainland, I fought a random Tentacool and won, which leveled Heracross to 30.
Got back, and immediately left to catch the first flying type I could find, a level 5 hoothoot.
Travelled back to Olvine to take down the gym. As I stepped in the door, another old man told me he knew I would be there. Soon after I was stopped by another person, this time a young girl who basically said the same thing, so maybe the old man wasn't a pedophile, or maybe they just both wanted my junk. No gym trainers in this one so it was straight on to Jasmine!
Heracross easily OHKO'd her first magnemite with a brick break, and Primeape took down this next magnemite in a similar fashion.
Steelix was much harder as he had a lot of health and he OHKO'd Primeape after a screech. However, Poliwrath only had to Surf twice to take the Steelix out and grew to level 32!
After leaving the gym I got a call from Prof Elm. He told me the radio was broadcasting something about Team Rocket. I, being smarter than Prof Elm is, realized Team Rocket had taken over the Goldenrod radio station. I healed at the pokecenter then flew to Goldenrod.
My suspicions were confirmed as I approached the radio tower, several rocket members were scattered around and there was nobody else in sight. I entered the tower.
The Team Rocket theme music was booming throughout the room, I couldn't help but jam out for a few seconds.
A rocket member was guarding the staircase and he told me I couldn't get through until I was wearing a Rocket uniform. God, did I want to have that uniform, it was just so awesome looking.
I went down into the underground tunnel and saw a rocket goon standing guard, he thought I was a new recruit and gave me a spiffy new uniform, yes just what I've always wanted!
Exiting the tunnel I ran straight to the Radio Tower. I once again jammed to the music, then talked the guard. He let me pass but my rival tried to stop me from being in Team Rocket. Not wanting him to be disappointed, I switched to my old clothes and told him I wasn't in Team Rocket. He took the clothes from me and threw them away. :(
However the rocket grunt saw that and I had to battle him. Sorry Rocket guy, I really did want to join.
I easily destroyed his pokemon, gaining Primeape level 29!
The rocket goons were holding the radio hosts hostage on the next floor and I had to help them to maybe get in one of the attractive ladies pants!
The first grunt only had rattatta and Primeape took them out without breaking a sweat.
There were three other grunts I fought two of them, but the last one was a woman! Ack! How could I fight an attractive woman in skintight clothing! I shook my head and focused on her Arbok. Poliwrath 33! I could tell the hypnosis + focus punch would be a great combo.
I talked to the lady just past the female rocket member, but she wasn't interested in a 10 year old. Dang.
Left for the next floor fighting several more rockets. Primeape level 30. I talked to another attractive woman who told me the director was on the 5th floor and I needed to save him.
The next floor leveled Primeape to 31.
On the next floor I found Petrel pretending to be someone else yet again... I easily defeat all of his pokemon, leveling Poliwrath to 35.
He gave me a key to find the director.
Went back to the underground tunnel. Met yet another kimono lady and moved on, huge basement base. Ugh. My rival attacked me as I got down there. I beat him, Machoke 34, Heracross 31!
Got through the rest of that floor Primeape 32, Poliwrath 36.
The next floor had a lot of boxes in it, and I could see the director.
A few easy grunts down, Primeape level 33, and I got the director's card key. I left through the basement floor of the department store and headed back toward the radio tower.
After opening the door I fought a rocket grunt to get through to the stairs. His pokemon were easy and Poliwrath hit 37!
Saw an item and went for it only to be stopped by Proton, who was also apparently guarding the stairs to the next floor. Again, an easy win. The item was an ultra ball...
On the next floor Ariana stood between me and an elevator, so I easily defeated her and took the ride up. Machoke leveled to 35.
I realized I had no more potions so I had to go back to town to heal and get more potions before I moved on.
Next was Archie, his houndour was able to defeat my Machoke with two lucky crits. So, I moved on to Poliwrath and OHKO'd it. Poliwrath continued destroying his pokemon and hit level 38. Archer was upset that he lost and disbanded Team Rocket. Yay! Except now I'll never get to join... :(
The director, another old man, barged in and gave me the "RAINBOW wing". Right, another pedophile giving me innuedo filled gifts...
I left the building and proceeded to fly to Mahogany Town so I could move forward with the game!
I did some training on the route to Ice Path, did you know that you can skip every single trainer on that route? Wow! The last trainer, a man, told me I was hot stuff then asked for my number... great. Primeape 34, Poliwrath 39.
While in the Ice Path I found HM07, taught it to Croconaw, and solved a few puzzles, I also helped a Kimono Lady get unstuck from a pool of ice.
Made it to Blackthorn City, where I healed and went straight for the gym. Easily took out every single trainer with Poliwrath's Hypnosis + Focus Punch. Poliwrath leveled to 41.
Clair's Gyarados and Kingdra made it hard for Poliwrath, but we beat those two and were able to destroy the rest of her team. Poliwrath level 42.
After the battle I had to go into the Dragon's Den in order to get my badge, ****ing Clair. Anyway, I passed the test and got my badge.
Left the Dragon's Den and flew to Ecruteak.
Headed out for Mt. Mortar, surfed out to the middle entrance, but saw Suicune! It pushed me out of the way and Eusine talked to me afterward. I finally took the middle entrance into Mt Mortar.
Surfed out to the giant waterfall there and landed on an "island" in the middle of the water, I went further back into the cave. There was a trainer in the next area and Machoke leveled to 36. This area was a weird maze.
Going down a ladder I found another maze! I eventually found my way to another ladder, and went down a couple flights of stairs and found the Karate King, Kiyo!
Machoke defeated both of his Hitmons, and Kiyo gave me a Tyrogue!
It had a Bashful nature, and I planned on evolving it into a Hitmonchan, luckily, it's IV phrase thingy said it had "Good Endurance" which apparently means it's highest stat is defense!
EV trained Tyrogue on route 45 for defense until he hit 20, evolving him into Hitmonchan! Also leveled Heracross to 32 Poliwrath to 43 and Machoke to 37.
Flew back to Ecruteak to heal and start EV training Hitmonchan in attack.
Taught Hitmonchan Drain Punch and gave it a pp up. Fought Goldeens and Seakings until Hitmonchan hit 31.

Well i ran to Goldenrod, and did the Radio tower, the Rockets gave me no hasle, Archer was alittle tough, dark vs ghost sucks..
After clearing the Radio tower i gain the Silver wing, and i head back to Mahogany town and i head towards the ice path
Alptraum is absolutely devastating everything in its path =D
I get to the Ice path, and i remember i need a HM slave with Strength and Rock Smash, and my unevolved HM-slave Totodile cannot learn them, so i retire him and i go and grab a new one, a lvl 19 Gyarados from Lake of Rage, and taught it Strength, Surf, Rock Smash and Whirlpool.
I walk through Ice path, grinding as i go. I find the HM for waterfall, and the original owner of it was nice enough to give it to me n_n'
Finally reached the other side of Blackthorn, and smiled as the sun hit my face. As a Ghost trainer, i do like the dark.. but bein in there that long with that much cold was harsh. The sun felt nice. And Alptraum is grinning, he must be happy aswell. (Or he liked downing those Jyxn >.>")
After looking around Blackthorn, i found out that the Gym was most Dragon -type trainers, so i figure now is the best time for....
Heart-Scale Hunting! Thats right folks, time to go hunting for those tiny little heart shaped scales that crazy people collect. These little Devils are hard to find and make you want to beat your head into the desk.
3 HOURS later, i find ONE.. One mother ^)_$%#* Heart scale for three hours of my life.. ¬_¬
I go back to Blackthorn and i teach Skelenoir Ice Punch, and then i head off to challenge Blackthorn Gym with Skelenoir Leading.
Had some problems with the various Seadra, but the Dratinis and Dragonairs were easy.
I get to Clair, she acts all tough saying she can hold her own against the elite four, and then accepts my challenge.
-Skelenoir goes out, and Gyarados comes out.. forgot about him... dammit
-I send out Alptraum and i down Gyarados with one Thunderbolt, so i send out Skelenoir when Dragonair #1 comes out, and i place a few Ice Punches on him.
-Kingdra comes out and i place a few Shadow Sneaks before she downs me with a 2nd Hydro Pump, then i send out Mori for fodder to revive Skelenoir, then when Mori goes down, i bring out Alptraum who downs Kingdra in two Shadow Balls, (her Hydro Pumps missed =D)
Dragonair #2 gets downed by two well placed Ice Punches and i win =D!
WooT The Eighth ba- what? Wont accept it? Lazy Ideals? Oh you *(#@$ gimme mah badge!
....¬¬
Now i have to go to the "Dragons Den" to take the test.. so i go and grab Gyarados and i head down to the Dragons Den. When inside im attacks by some Dragon trainers, saying im not allowed there.. in the mood i am in right now, i just beat their pokemon to a pulp without a word, and i head to the Shrine, and i meet the Dragon Elder...
I take the test, a bunch of questions.
I pass the test with flying colors, which pisses off Clair (to my amusement) and then i leave the Dragons den after obtaining the badge i rightfully won and i storm out in a huff
I get a call from Elm, he has something for me.. better not be a trick old man, last time he called me and said that was on my 10th birthday and i got a bag of bugs from him.. scared the living hell out of me
I get there and I obtain the Master Ball. And i get told that Kimono dressed girls were looking for me..oooooh ;D
They are said to be in Ecruteak, so i head right there and i head to the Dance Theater, and try to enter, when Soul gets knocked out of there, he looks upset. I help him up and he shoves me away, saying he got thrashed by them and then ran off because he "didnt want to see me win"
I get in and they say they want to test me, and the first walk up, Oooh a battle. The battle against the Kimono girls starts now
-The first one sends out Umbreon, who almost takes my entire team out... dammit
-I finally down Umbreon with Focus Blast then the next battles went underway.. pretty easy so i wont waste space talking about them
-Went to Whirl Islands, caught lugia (without using masterball) and then went to the Pokemon League Reception gate (Routes before were uneventful) and headed through Victory Road.
Near the end, Soul shows up and Challenges me, and Alptraum lays waste to his team. He huffs and storms off.
I run up to the League and i put in my challenge and i head in to Wills domain.
Will was extremely easy, Alptraum destroyed everything.
Koga was alittle more difficult, but Voodoo did very well
Bruno was easy too, Mori did well up till Machamp, then Alptraum knocked Machamp off for the win
...god i hate dark types.. Karen's team laid waste to me, thank god for max revives and Focus blast, i won but barely.,
Finally, the battle with Lance.
-Alptraum took out Gyarados and Charizard, Skelenoir took out the last four, Aerodactyl, and Dragonites 1, 2 and 3, but he had some struggles, being slower and alittle weaker physical attacker, but i got the job done and.......
WooooooooT Elite Four Champion!

Here's another question, is using the Safari Zone disallowed?

If it is, that leads me onto my next question, am I allowed to import
either a Croagunk or Grimer being as the latter isn't available until Kanto and the former has no way to be obtained outside of the Rally pokewalker course event.

Long overdue update.
Haven't played in a while. Before this update I did play voltorb flip for a long time, and finally got the thunderbolt TM. Voltorb flip is actually a pretty fun game once you figure out how to play it well.

-Started out inside the Ice cave. Pidgeot was freezing so I tried my best to rush through.
-Some areas of the floor were very slippery and I couldn't change direction when I walked on the ice. I had to slide my way through.
-After more ice floors I found the Waterfall HM. Later I found an old man who said he misplaced that HM, but he wanted me to keep it. I used the HM to teach waterfall to Gyarados.
-I had to use strength to push a few boulders down to the floor below.
-I went down to the next floor and slid on the ice. Somehow running straight into the boulders didn't hurt me, so I proceded down to the next floor.... and the next one... and maybe more.
-On the final floor I found a Kimono Girl who was stuck in the ice... and also blocking my way out. I pushed her out of the way and she thanked me. I exited the cave and entered Blackthorn City.
-After stopping by the pokemon center, I went to the move tutor's house. I gave him the Heart Scale I won from the Pokeathlon a while back and he helped Crobat learn cross poison. I had a feeling this move would really come in handy later...
-Stocked up in the mart and headed into the gym.
-Battled the trainers in the gym and finally confronted Clair.

Gym Battle.
-Screw you Clair. Just thought I would throw that out there.
-I easily took out her Gyarados with 2 thunderbolts from Dragonair.
-My gyarados then took out both of her dragonair with ice fang. Ironic eh?
-She then sends her Kingdra. I could have sworn the thing had black wings for a second.
-I tried to use Pidgeot to do decent damage, but I only got one Fly attack through because Hydro pump does massive damage.
-I switched to Crobat and used cross poison. Kingdra was poisoned and it had very low health. Clair used a hyper potion.
-I used cross poison some more, until Kingdra had 1 hp left, and it fainted Crobat with another Hydro pump.
-I switched to dragonair and healed, hoping to get some good exp since Kingdra was about to faint. BUT NO, CLAIR USES A FULL RESTORE.
-I used a max revive on crobat, since I know i would need him again.
-Kingdra got a OHKO on dragonair with dragon pulse... not much else to say there.
-Switched back to crobat and used cross poison. Karma kills. It was a critical hit AND Kingdra was poisoned again. I used cross poison once more to finish her off.

Aftermath
-Clair refused to give me the gym badge unless I went to the dragon's den and passed some test. I thought battling her was the test...
-I went into the dragon's den and battled a few trainers. I then surfed on the water inside and went through a whirlpool.
-I arrived at a small hut and met a few sages inside who asked me a few questions. Nothing special here. They told me I passed the test... that was it?
-Clair arrived and found out I found the test. She seeemed pretty angry because apparantly she never passed the test. One of the sages mentioned the name "Lance" and the quickly handed me the badge and ran off. She must really respect him. I used an escape rope to exit the dungeon and got a call from Professor elm, who told me had had a gift for me.

Quick Update:

I finally managed to grind almost my entire team to level 40, then attempted the elite four. I made it to Bruno and his Hitmonlee, but he demolished my entire Ice-team, with a combination of Blaze Kick and Hi Jump Kick.

I went back and raised my Jynx up to level 44, then tried again. This time I wiped Bruno no problem at all, except his Machamp was a little tough.

The Dark-type E4 member was pretty easy, the only threat on her team was Houndoom, who was doused easily by my Lapras and her surf, while holding Mystic Water.

Lance and his Aerodactyl gave me a bit of trouble, until I sent out Mamoswine, who cleaned it up. My Glaceon and his Hail, blizzard combo took out all of the rest, except Charizard. Who, surprisingly, stood up quite well, but was eventually taken down by my Lapras.

So yeah, I have made it into Kanto. Here is my team, as it stands:


Lapras, level 43. Ice Beam, Surf, Waterfall, Thunderbolt

Glaceon, level 44. Ice Beam, Blizzard, Icy Wind, Hail

Cloyster, Level 41 Aurora Beam, Clamp, Withdraw, Supersonic

Mamoswine, level 44. Earthquake, Ancient Power, Avalanche, Strength

Jynx, level 46. Psychic, Shadowball, Sing, Blizzard

Weavile, level 40. Faint Attack, Night Slash, Icy Wind, Thief

Day One


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.

Day Two


After a week of being grounded for breaking another television, Mom still refuses to let me go and run that errand that Prof. Elm wanted. I finally decided to just sneak out of the house and go do it anyway.

That red-haired kid is still standing there...in the same exact position...for an entire week.
After nearly making a perfect getaway out of town, this chick starts hassling me about whether or not I brought my Pokégear. I tell her yes, just to get her to shut up, but she didn't buy it. She practically orders me to go back home and get my Pokégear. Great, now I have to sneak back into my own house.
Snuck in through an upstairs window, went downstairs, and managed to fast-talk my mother into giving me back my Pokégear. I slyly mention the fact that Prof. Elm wanted me to do a favor for him, which is somehow convinces my mother that it's an important favor, which is enough for her to let me out of the house. It's probably a good thing too, since my Totodile's been chewing up all the furniture in my room...

My mother must think I'm really slow, if she's explaining the intricacies of using my Pokégear to make a phone call. You dial the numbers, press the call button, and wait for the other person to pick up. This isn't high-tech stuff, Mom.
Prof. Elm comes bursting through his Lab door, screaming for me to wait. Dude, I've been waiting for an entire week to get the hell out of this boring town. I ain't stopping just because you said so. So, I immediately start running to Route 29.

I didn't get far before he caught up with me. Apparently, all he wanted to do was give me his phone number, which is really creepy. Does he hand out his phone number to all the young boys he sends out on errands? He'll call me if anything comes up? I really hope that isn't some innuendo of his.
He quickly shuffled back to his Lab, and I started my walk on Route 29. It feels good to be out of that drab town. Now, I'll just walk through that talk grass, make my way to Cherrygrove City, and everything will be just fi-...
HOLY ****, IT'S A BIRD! Totodile, destroy it!
Well that was kind of fun. Was that a Pokémon Battle? I could definitely get used to those. Totodile seems pretty happy about his victory too.
Some kid in a backwards hat gave me some decent, if not obvious, advice. He basically told me that, if my Pokémon are weak, to avoid battling. I swear, you'd think that much would be obvious.
Found some guy that's waiting for a Pokémon that only appears at night. Must be a nocturnal Pokémon.
Goddammit. Can't I walk somewhere without being accosted by complete and utter strangers? Now this old man is trying to, and I quote, "teach me a few things". If that isn't code for "I'm a pedophile", then I honestly don't know what is.
Great, now old pedophiles are insulting me for the fact that I don't like to run everywhere. Now he's offering to go as slow as possible, another innuendo. I can't even have Totodile use Scratch attack, since we got all worn out fighting all those brown pigeons. Damn birds weakened my only self-defense. I should start carrying mace for these kinds of situations.
Okay, the old man gave me some useful information, like the info on the Pokémon Center and Pokémon Mart, as well as the info on Route 30. I'm still not going to go into his house though, I don't give a damn what gift he's got for me.
Really? Old shoes? Who doesn't want old shoes as a gift, right? Now he wants to tell me they're brand new. I better see some receipts, old man. After all the pedophilia innuendos, leading me to your house, and trying to pawn off old shoes, I want some proof to believe anything you say.
Okay, after checking the shoes, I found out that they are indeed new. Now I just have to deal with these weird instructions. Press 'B' to run? What is this, some kind of video game? How am I supposed to press the 'B' button!?
Found out there's a 'B' button on the left side of both soles of the shoes. That's just a weird concept, but whatever.
Using my new 'Running Shoes', I sped off towards the Pokémon Center. Totodile needs some major healing, after the brutal cans of whoop-ass it opened on those birds.
The nurse told me to come back anytime, which is kind of nice to hear that they're open 24/7. I thought she would say something morbid like 'We hope to see you again'. But that's just silly, right?
I don't really need to buy anything at the moment, so I took off for Route 30.
Oh crap, it's the pedophile again. Can't you leave me alone for five goddamn minutes!?
He "loaded' his "map card" into my "Pokégear", or at least, he tried to. Totodile swiftly kicked his old ass though.
Damn it, more birds. This is getting seriously freaking annoying now. I'm putting all these birds on the extinction list.
Found a stray Potion lying on the ground. Finders keepers, losers...well, the losers wouldn't mind, because they probably haven't even figured out that they lost it yet.
Entered the first house I saw. Mr. Pokémon should be in here...
Nope, just another odd guy, living in a small house, that gives away free stuff. You would think, after all the pedophiles I've encountered, I'd be a bit more wary entering unknown houses.
Trekked back to the Pokémon Center. It's way too late to go to Mr. Pokémon's house. I'll go tomorrow.

Day Three


Man, it feels like it's been an entire week. Stupid long days going by so slowly.
Well, I finally got moving to Mr. Pokémon's house. On my way there though, I got attacked by a Wild Weedle. Guess what? The little prick Poisoned Totodile. Of course, that didn't spare it Totodile's full aqua-based fury, but that meant we have to go all the way back to the Pokémon Center! The Weedle shall pay for this transgression.
Oh goddammit! Totodile got Poisoned agained, by another damn Weedle! Back to the Pokémon Center we go...

We just made it to the Pokémon Center, and even the nurse was starting to look exasperated. Hey, believe me lady, we're not doing this on purpose. Stupid damn Weedle...
We finally got back to Route 30, destroying every single Weedle we found. They deserve it anyways, for Poisoning us every freaking time we get close to Mr. Pokémon's house!
Oh great, instead of a Weedle, I find a Kakuna instead. Luckily, all it knows is Harden. Heh, phallic imagery.
Finally made it to, what I believe to be, Mr. Pokémon's house. After a quick checking of the mailbox, I found out that this is indeed the house I've been looking for. I don't bother to knock cause hey, what's the worst thing that could happen?
Oh great, I walked in on two old guys talking about the 'good ole days'. Just freaking beautiful. You know, if I wanted to kill myself slowly, there are a lot better ways of going about it.
Did I travel all this way, and cross over dozens of Weedle for an Egg? You have got to be kidding me? Screw this, I want an omelet, and I want one now!
Damn, I just realized I forgot my camping supplies. No omelet for now...
Well, I got introduced to Mr. Pokémon and his acquaintance, Prof. Oak, who must be going senile, since he keeps calling me 'Red'.
Prof. Oak went off on some tangent on how the Kanto Gym Leaders are some of the best Trainers there are. He manages to get to the Cerulean Gym Leader, Misty, the self-proclaimed Water-type expert, and I finally snapped. I told him that if I chose to specialize in just one type, I'd kick everyone's ass. I told him that, not only would I focus on just Water-type Pokémon, but I'd personally travel to Kanto and defeat Misty. He just looked amused, before he left, calling me 'Red' once more.
Oh yeah, and he gave me a Pokédex, and registered my number. With this Pokédex, I can check out the new Pokémon I've caught. Oh wait...I can't catch any Pokémon yet. I just don't have the Balls.
I left Mr. Pokémon's house, and immediately got a call from Prof. Elm. What the hell happened now, man? Can't I just complete this errand already?
Okay, Elm is being a complete spaz again. I better go check on him to make sure he didn't accidentally swap a Pokémon's medication with his. Last time that happened, he thought he was a Magikarp and kept trying to use Tackle attack on everyone. He never leveled up once.
I finally made it back to Cherrygrove, hitting up the local Pokémon Center upon arrival. After healing up Totodile, I tried to leave town and go back home.
I made a quick stop off at Route 30, beating the hell out of some Weedle, before walking back home.

What...what is this awesome music I'm hearing?

v/fBHfv73mWEE

Where ever this music is coming from, it is made of badass and win.
Oh crap. It's him.Wasn't beating the hell out of me once enough for him? Apparently, he doesn't think so.
HEY! I am not a wimp. Go on, send out your Pokémon! I bet you picked Cynadquil like a noob! I bet Totodile knocks your Pokémon out with Water Gun! I bet...

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-2-1.png?t=1275348460


...You prick.
I still decimated his Chikorita with my Totodile's Scratch attack. All it did was Growl at me.
Right before he decided to make his big dramatic exit, Mr. Passerby Boy dropped something important~

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-2-2.png?t=1275348732


Thievery is fun! Oh yeah, and I saw his name too. Seriously, why name your kid after a color? Damn hippies not knowing their culture has died out, along with disco.
I've made my grand entrance in New Bark Town, and no one is there to welcome me back!? That's just plain mean...
I better check on Elm to make sure he hasn't wet himself in fear, or if he's still using Splash attack.
Oh great, a cop. This will obviously end well for me.

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-2-3.png?t=1275349036


Why? Why did I do it!? This wouldn't happen if I was white.

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-1-2.png?t=1275349208


See this (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BigDamnHeroes) for future references.
Let me guess, she's going to reveal some shocking information next?

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-2-4.png?t=1275349455


So freaking called that one.
The cop asks me for a name for the red-haired wonder, and I gave it to him without any problems. I gladly tell him that the red-haired boy's name is 'Silver', and even the cop looks somewhat suspicious. If I hadn't read that name off the Trainer Card, I wouldn't have believed it either.
Well, I handed over the Mystery Egg to Prof. Elm, since I knew I wouldn't be able to leave and eat it without getting caught.
Also, the senile old man handing out Pokédexes (is that the plural of Pokédex?) is amazing. Note the sarcasm.
I really don't feel like taking the Pokémon Gym Leader Challenge, but if I don't, I'll never hear the end of it from Oak, should I ever see him again.
Well, went home to talk to Mom about how I'm going on a journey to collect Water-type Pokémon, kick ass, and take names. I tried to leave out the parts with the pedophiles, since she wouldn't let me go if she knew about them. Besides, Totodile fixed that last one rather well.
Mom suggested holding onto my money for safe-keeping, which isn't a bad idea. I give her the OK on it, I go upstairs, jump into bed, and go to sleep. Not like the Gym's are going anywhere, right?

And that's a wrap. Okay, so what do you guys think of this update? As you can see, near the end, I started to lean more towards posting screenshots, as well as commentary. I think I'm being influenced by all the 'Let's Play!' Pokémon games I've been reading. What would you guys prefer, straight text, mixed (with screenshots used here and there, as opposed to everything), or screenshots used a lot during the update (with a comment following each one)? Note to self: do not copy this and place it in SPOILER tags next update.

Oh, and as for the YouTube video, I couldn't get the .mp3 to work correctly. Sorry~.

I like the mix you did there. It had sort of everything which was cool and kept it interesting.

EDIT: Has anybody noticed how as soon as I asked that kid for some proof of his challenge he stopped updating? lmao

I called him on it. ; )

Well, that's one vote for mixed, right?

Also, I'm going to laugh my ass off if he's planning a gigantic update at this minute, which includes everything from start to finish.

P.S: Just got finished being complete terrified because I thought the ROM hadn't saved again. Come to find out that...

I was using the wrong ROM. I'm keeping my progress on SoulSilver, and I kept clicking HeartGold. I spazzed out so badly that I went and downloaded no$zoomer to try to reclaim a .SAV file that wasn't there. Maybe I should start keeping these things in better folders?

Love the way you did you update Arcelio. I read alot of Lets Plays from the Lets Play Archive, and i think you should do it like that, or atleast a few screen shots here and there =p

@.EJ lol i notice it now that you mention it, that kid was acting like he was all that, and then when you call him out he suddenly dissapears xD
He was probably faking it, thinking everyone would be like "Woah this kid iz amazing, best pokemon player ever!!!!1111oneoneeleven" lmao

Anyways, my quick update:
Quick Update =D


Found a lost little girl on the ship, returned her to her grandpapi.
Arrived in Vermillion City, walked around for alittle bit then found a gym and felt like challenging it, so i surfed around and went in.
Demolished the lackies and found the two switches, Skelenoir is in heaven here.
Took on Lt. Surge, it was actually easy, Skelenoir tanked, and retaliated with Earthquake =D
Got the Thunder Badge! =D
Noticing its Monday, I run to the Pokeathelon dome and i do all the courses through, i repeated the power course a few times cause it was easiest, and i saved up 3000+ points, and traded them in for a Dusk Stone, using it on Mori to evolve him into Mismagius
Left the Gym and went on a walk with my pokewalker (finally saved up enough watts over this week to get the "Quiet Cave")
After walking forever (with Alptraum, only need 7500 steps with a Ghost to get what i wanted) i found...
A Spiritomb!
After missing the first, i find another and i catch it, sending it back to my game.
After looking over this Spiritomb, i dislike it, Hasty natured at level 31, so i figure its breeding time, i go out and catch a Ditto (since the Spiritomb is a male) and i breed them, after getting a few eggs i hatch them, and find a female one, then i place Mismagius in with the Female Spiritomb
After breeding, i get one egg (they didnt like eachother much ¬¬)
I run around like mad to hatch it, and i finally do. A female Spiritomb, with Ominous Wind (Egg Move from the Mom Spiritomb), Pain Split (from daddy Mori) and Pursuit/Curse that came as fillers.. Kinda sad that Shadow Ball didnt pass from Mori, but oh well. I quickly remove Pursuit with Dark Pulse (TM) and then i set out to train her, and thats where i currently am. =P Also apparently ran into a pokemon infected with Pokerus while training Spiritomb, so my team is infected with it right now >.>

Pretty short update, but hey, I thought I'd post it.

Update #4!


Flew down to New Bark and was told by Prof Elm that some Kimono girls were looking for me at the Ecruteak Dance Theater.
I flew back to Ecruteak where I was challenged by all of the Kimono Girls back-to-back. Hitmonchan was able to defeat Umbreon, but was easily defeated by Espeon, next Poliwrath defeated Espeon narrowly. Flareon defeated Primeape in one hit, and then I used Hoothoot to revive Hitmonchan.
Flareon was hurt from the battle with Primeape, so I used Poliwrath to finish it off. Jolteon was tough and finished off my Machoke in two hits. Heracross defeated her with a Brick Break critical.
The last up was Vaporeon. It OHKO'd my Hitmonchan, and I switched to Heracross who got it down to just a sliver of health with the help of a few potions. The only pokemon I had left was Poliwrath, I healed him to full and put it to sleep, then hit it with a headbutt, defeating it and earning Poliwrath level 44!
I recieved the Clear Bell, and then a pokemon flew over the Bell Tower and the Kimono Girls left to check it out.
I healed and then followed them there. I passed a couple of monks that acted as checkpoints. Then there was a maze sort of thing with a lot of jumps. Long story short, I made it to Ho-oh. Leveled Hitmonchan to 32 on Rattattas on the way up. Poliwrath solo'd him by putting him to sleep and then surfing a couple of times. Yay!
Headed out toward the pokemon league first trainer I found was an ace trainer with bublasaur and its evolutions. They were no problem for Heracross. Heracross level 33.
More trainers a lot of easy levels. Hitmonchan 35, Primeape 35, Heracross 34, Poliwrath 45.
Made it to Victory Road, it was a very annoying cave but no trainers so it was easy enough to get through.
At the end I had to fight Silver, so funny story here. Remember when his Gastly used Curse on my low leveled Mankey while it was at about 1/3 health? It used Curse on my hoothoot who I had out to heal some pokemon. Hah. No levels from the fight. =/
So I had made it to the Pokemon League! My next goal was to at least see Bruno's Machamp so I could trade evolve my Machoke over the GTS with my SS game.
Started the Elite 4. Will was definitely going to be a problem. Xatu defeated Hitmonchan with no trouble but my Poliwrath put it to sleep then defeated it easily enough. Will destroyed me with his other pokemon though.
The next try I beat Xatu in much the same way. His Exeggutor destroyed all of my team, but I managed to revive Poliwrath and kill it with Hypnosis + Focus Punch.
I narrowly defeated the second Xatu, and then Will brought out Jynx, who killed Poliwrath. **** Will.
I took a break and did some Pokeathlon stuff. Stamina is so easy to win.
Started grinding, mostly for Hitmonchan, but I didn't keep track of levels, I eventually leveled Hitmonchan high enough to defeat Will!
So, I defeated him! Yay! I healed with potions then moved onto Koga.
Defeated Koga barely, and finally moved on to Bruno. I beat most of his pokemon, but I lost to Machamp. Luckily that's all I went in for!
Attempted to GTS trade my SS game for Machamp, but I couldn't find my character's offer. So if anyone wants to trade me real fast that'd be great! PM me. :)

I havent had a ton of time to play as of recent.

I have, however, managed to beat Clair (Empoleon + Avalance) and have progressed to the E4, where I am currently deciding whether or not I should grind my team to Level 45 or just go at Level 40.

Did I say that I beat Clair? If not, I did bet her. Because Empoleons Blizzard hit... Four times. xD

Also, I did the Kimono Girls. Scizor killed every one, though at the end he only had 14 hp. xD

I also decided to kill Ho-oh. xD

blaQk's Pokémon HGSS Monotype Challenge Journal
Entry: 4

The legendary beasts were nice to me. I only had to soft-reset once to get a timid natured Entei. ;D

Quest information:

Caught Entei and Raikou
Beat Morty with some Sentret haxs
Trapinch evolves
Beat the Rocket and received HM 03 (Surf)
Caught a Farfetch'd for an HM slave
Evolved Sentret so it could learn Surf
Faught my way through the lighthouse and across routes 40 and 41
Picked up a Shuckle
Beat Chuck (Vibrava's Faint Attack was nice)
Picked up HM 02 (Fly)
Picked up the SecretPotion I came for
Trounced Eusine
Gave the SecretPotion to Jasmine
Beat Jasmine (took a lot of potions to make her run out of PP on her Steelix so Gabite could finish it)
Flew to Ecruteak City
Made my way East into Mahogany town
Then made my way North to the Lake of Rage



I'm currently setting at the Lake of Rage infront of the Red Gyarados debating on if I want to soft-reset until I catch a jolly natured one or not. I'll probably just catch it and what I get is what I get. I really don't feel like doing the Rocket HQ mission . . .

I think I'm going to start today or tomorrow with fire-types, but since I hate cyndaquil can I possibly have someone trade me a chimchar instead?

Totodile's standing by the bed so the old guy who asked me all the questions won't come back.

Mom, I didn't even leave yet. You should stop drinking in the afternoon...:(

Just before we left home, I grabbed my dusty old camera from a drawer. Never know when the thing might come in handy. Besides, this way, when I'm all old and wrinkly, I can look back at these pictures and think about my memories, instead of talking to young-people about them http://www.crazyamazingleague.com/Forum/images/icons/icon8.gif

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-1-5.png?t=1275506905
Totodile, we've been spotted. Just play it cool.

You know, if you think I'm that stupid, you might as well just come out and say it.

So it was Lyra that's been holding onto my balls for me? Anybody find it weird how, without the accent over the 'e', it becomes 'Poke Balls'?

Well, I only plan on catching Water-type Pokemon, to be the very best at that, so I guess I should save a few of my balls for later. Don't wanna waste them too early now, would I?

Cherrygrove City: The City of Fragrant Flowers

Well, I stopped by the Pokemon Center to heal real quick, then me and Totodile sped off to Route 30.

We battled a few trainers, and a few Wild Pokemon. Nothing of interest happened, so I didn't bother taking any pictures of it.

Well, seeing as we're both extremely fond of stupid looking hats, it shouldn't be that hard for us to find each other. Also, how the hell did I beat you here, if you left before me, and I didn't see you in Cherrygrove?

Annnnnd that's a wrap, people. Kind of short update, I know, but uploading screenshots is hard work. You've gotta take the screenshot, use Photoshop, save it as a .PNG, upload it to Photobucket, copy the link, then paste the link onto Pokecommunity, then write a caption for it. I think I'm just gonna casually rotate, doing text one update, then screenshots the next. Next update will be text, in case you're wondering.

Jolly is good to sweep. :D

Just a quick update (Although some notable stuff has happened)

* Poked my head in Dark Cave to snag a Zubat, nicknamed Rue.
* Made it to Violet City for the first time.
* Went in the Sprout Tower to catch a Gastly, nicknamed Thresh.
* Went south of Violet City to train up a bit. (Route 32 & Ruins of Alph)
* After 15 long hours of grinding (I forgot to turn off my DS...) I finally managed to have both of my Weedles learn Bug Bite, and I finally let them evolve.
* I ended up sweeping through Sprout Tower.
* I destroyed Falkner (Even though Bug Bite & Twineedle were both weak against his Pidgeotto...kinda sad)
* Got the Togepi egg :3
* Started to beat a few trainers in route 32, and decided to rest up.

Yes you are since you have no way to trade in with emulator.

Haha sorry, I was asking about the number (1 or 2 eggs?).

Also, if I use types that needs trading to evolve, can I make it evolve at certain parts of the game (say, I only hack-change Haunter to Gengar after I get like 12 badges or something)? (I understand if I can't.. Emulator after all ><)

Alright, very quick update:


I grinded a hell of a lot the past few days, getting my team up to par at 50 or around
Went and caught a Nincada at the Bug catching contest today. Trained it up and evolved it into Ninjask, with the cast off of Shedinja, who is my new team member, Fade.
Now im currently going around getting the badges, i got, so far, the Cascade Badge, the Thunder Badge, The Rainbow Badge, the Soul Badge, and Sabrinas. i only got Blue, Blaine and Brock then its off to train for red.
Ill probably update after beating Red.

Team:
Alptraum the Modest Gengar (M)
Level 53
-Shadow Ball
-Psychic
-Focus Blast
-Thunderbolt

108Sin the Quiet Spiritomb (F)
Level 53
-Ominous Wind
-Nasty Plot
-Curse
-Dark Pulse

Fade the Gentle Shedinja (?)
Level 43
-Shadow Sneak
-X-Scissor
-False Swipe
-Dig

Voodoo the Adamant Banette (F)
Level 49
-Shadow Claw
-Faint Attack
-Headbutt
-Will-O-Wisp

Mori the Serious Mismagius (M)

-Charge Beam
-Psybeam
-Shadow Ball
-Pain Split

Skelenoir the Bashful (M)

-Ice Punch
-Shadow Sneak
-Will-O-Wisp

Im actually thinking of retiring Mori, cause hes not very good.. And when i beat Red i will need a spot open for an HM slave anyways..

Hm slaves are the same as before.

.EJ
June 3rd, 2010, 07:37 PM
I'd allow that. It's only fair if I do.

Two eggs...

emoxy
June 3rd, 2010, 07:42 PM
Thanks a lot EJ. I'm still deciding on a type.. Gosh.. Why is deciding on a type so hard.

Shiari I thought that Mismagius should be quite good.. Used to be my strong hitter in my Pt playthrough. Maybe it's shadowed by Gengar.. >< Sad that you can't get more Psychic TMs.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2/5.png
That's her Marill. I tried to hint to her not to bring it to our dates, but she always did. And guess what her Marill does? Spoil our good times. Sigh...

Seems like acquaintances are REALLY close in this world. And why the hell am I going to be involved in this? Getting a Pokemon means I can't be alone with Lyra. EVER. Gosh.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2/8.png
And somehow, Prof Elm decided to pick Bitey for me because it bites. GREAT.

Lyra's happy that I got a Pokemon! And seems like her Marill likes my Bitey o.o

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2/12.png
Bitey: That Marill keeps looking at me.. What's it up to?
Love, my dear.

If I recall correctly It will be unable to save because theres is another game data.But I guess I could atleast try right?

Im getting all ready, i did a test battle and i was able to down Snorlax with Gengar, after Hail damage and burn damage for a few turns (stalled with Voodoo and my death fodder Feraligatr, who i grinded from level 9 to 36 so i could use Rock Climb on it, who stood there getting pummled while i revived Voodoo) a Focus Blast took him down.. now i just need to make a strategy for Charizard.


*edit* i have a plan with Shedinja now. Stalling. Im planning on using these as the moves:
Toxic
Swagger
X-Scissor
and idk, shadow sneak for extra damage i suppose.

I figure with Hail gone, and taking down Charizard and Snorlax, Shedinja can stall out his team. Im feeling good about this set.

BINGO!!! *Give JFire a cookie* :3 Sorry I don't have time for an update...nothing interesting has really happened though.
I'm sorry, I can't accept that cookie... on the account that I googled the answer. On a related note, I was going to read the hunger games a while back. I might still do it if I have spare time...

Uhh, I hope this is my last off topic post, at least until my next update which should be soon. There's not really that much happening, so not much I can say. Sabrina's a hard gym leader for my challenge though, haha.

* Met Kurt.
* Foiled Team Rocket's plans, and saved all the Slowpokes.

Apparently I slept on the road again. And just as I walked over into Cherrygrove City..

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/2.png
An old man noticed me..

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/3.png
This is the sea, as you can see, he sounds like Killerbee.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/4.png
And I received my running shoes! Finally I can walk at normal speed (50% x 2 lol)

Up onto Route 30, where I'm supposed to find er.. Mr Pokemon right?

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/5.png
I have to admit I thought that was Mr Pokemon's house, but since he assumed the other way round, let's just keep at it.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/7.png
And look what I caught! Two old men.. Doing what?!?!?! They immediately backed off when I went in. Gosh.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/9.pnghttp://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/10.png
OMG, is that old man interested in me?! I already have a girlfriend please.. At least he gave me a Pokedex, not too bad.

And on my way out, it seems that Professor Elm has been bullied.

Bitey bit my hand right here. He seems to be saying, "Something's coming!" Sensing something elusive, I decided to save right here. And look what I've found!
http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/14.png
This red-haired boy attempting to challenge me! He sent out a Chikorita, which scared Bitey so much that it cried.
http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/15.pnghttp://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/16.pnghttp://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/17.png
Scratch made short work of it though. :)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/18.png
He suddenly stopped on his way out. I looked at Bitey, and saw that it was biting onto that red-haired boy's trainer card. Nice.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Monotype2_2/19.png
Remembering that Prof Elm was calling for me, I jumped my way to his lab.. Only to be accused by a stupid Police! Luckily Lyra was there to charm that policeman :D

OMG! Big update :D


Defeated Blaine and Brock easily, so they dont really need mention here.
Blue gave me some trouble. Most of his pokemon hit really hard, and i dont got many defenses outside of 108Sin and Skelenoir, but i managed to pull through on top.
Prof Oak calls me saying he has something for me.. god i hope hes not naked when i get there =(
Flew to Pallet Town, visited Blues home, talked to his sister, not much there so i went next door, there was an lady there, said she misses her "Red" hmm.. where have i heard that name
After leaving there i head to Oaks lab, and he almost jumps me when i walk in.. god old man
He gives me an HM, with Rock Climb, then he told me to go to Mt. Silver, since there are scary strong pokemon there, awesome, training fodder
I head out to Mt.Silver, wanting to train, and i do. I train my team alittle, and i also figure out i need Rock Climb, so i trained my Totodile up to level 36 evolving him into Feraligatr. And then i teach him Surf, Rock Climb, Waterfall, Strength, and i head off for a Mountain Climbing excursion.
Everything is getting downed, mostly by Shedinja cause nothing has a super effective move xD
I reach, what i can only figure is, the summit of Mt.Silver, and i see a guy standing there, looking off into the Distance. I walk up to him, but halfway up the stairs, he turns, eyes hidden by his hat.. I feel an epic battle coming on!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v727/joodude/redportrait.gif
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNaahr-w2KQ&feature=related <= Listen

The Battle Ensues. Red VS Tobias. The Past Champion VS The Current.
Red Leads off with Pikachu, i send out Fade, and knowing he will switch into Snorlax (*it was a guess, i knew he would switch, i didnt know he was going to switch into Snorlax though) i withdraw Fade and send out Voodoo.
With Voodoo out i hope i can outspeed Snorlax who is 30+ levels higher than me, and i do! Suprisingly, and i get off a Will-O-Wisp, and the following Crunch doesnt do much at all (also factoring in the berry that weakens dark type moves) So then i waste a turn with a headbutt hoping to get some residual damage going, it doesnt do squat though, as Snorlax is defensive and much higher level than me.
Voodoo falls, and i send out HM-Slave, for death fodder, and i revive Voodoo, fully (Revive+Hyper Potion) HM-Slave is taken down by two Crunches.
After stalling out, Snorlax is pretty low, so i send out Alptraum and i Focus Blast, and miss.. #%(#... Snorlax Crunches me, and... omg Alptraum survived with 15 HP! I try Focus Blast again, and it hits! Almost knocking out Snorlax (like 3 damage left) and with the burn... he goes down!
Out comes lapras, not what i wanted to face, so on the switch in, i bring in Fade, to force a switch. I know a switch is coming, so i bring out Fade again and i send out Skelenoir. Charizard comes out right after.
Charizard does an Flare Blitz, and Skelenoir barely survives, but i get the Rain Dance off. Skelenoir goes down next turn (used it to heal up Alptraum) Now i know i wont OHKO something that many levels above me, so i switch out into 108Sin, hoping for another Flare Blitz, and he does. He doesnt OHKO 108Sin but the recoil damage is what i wanted, next turn he uses Air Slash taking down 108Sin
I send out Alptraum he outspeeds me, with an Air Slash, but it didnt flinch me, lucky, and with rain still going, i use Thunder! and OMG lucky crit. Charizard goes down.
Now.. its the waiting game. Fades time to shine. Hails gone, and the rest of his team cannot KO him. Lapras comes out, and i Swagger, and Toxic. After that i X-Scissor till hes almost KO'd, but he uses full restore. then i repeat and KO it.
the rest of his team is the same. Pikachu kills itself, i had to use Alptraum on Venusaur, cause i couldnt use Toxic, but i got off a lucky Psychic.
And im done! I got all the badges, and i beat the Elite four, and Red is down for the count!!!!!!

Alptraum the Modest Gengar (M)
@Colbur Berry
Level 59
-Shadow Ball
-Psychic
-Focus Blast
-Thunder
(Pure Power, thats all I have to say, when this Gengar attacks, it attacks fast, and hits HARD.)

http://www.smogon.com/download/sprites/dp/482.png
Skelenoir the Bashful Dusknoir (M)
Level 55
-Ice Punch
-Shadow Sneak
-Rain Dance
-Earthquake
(A Tank, can take hits and can dish them just as good. Took a Flare Blitz from a 84 Charizard, and survived.)

http://www.smogon.com/download/sprites/dp/447.png
108Sin the Quiet Spiritomb (F)
Level 54
-Ominous Wind
-Nasty Plot
-Water Pulse
-Dark Pulse
(Didnt get to use him much, but when i did he did fantastic. A Nasty Plot and it was almost OHKOs across the board, even to things 5 levels higher.)

http://www.smogon.com/download/sprites/dp/292.png
Fade the Gentle Shedinja (?)
Level 51
-Shadow Sneak
-X-Scissor
-Swagger
-Toxic
(Simply Amazing. Top Member of my team below Voodoo and Alptraum. He is the key member in alot of my Kanto victories. and the final battle was all his.)

http://www.smogon.com/download/sprites/dp/354.png
Voodoo the Adamant Banette (F)
Level 50
-Shadow Claw
-Faint Attack
-Headbutt
-Will-O-Wisp
(My "Starter", he shined in Johto more than he did in Kanto, due to his lackluster move pool, but was still a key part of my team.)

http://www.smogon.com/download/sprites/dp/434.png
Mori the Serious Mismagius (M)
Level 41
-Charge Beam
-Psybeam
-Shadow Ball
-Pain Split
(I was alittle dissapointed in him, didnt hit well enough and his moveset was horrid besides Shadow Ball. I kinda went lax with him and stopped training him.)

I'm no longer keeping track of levels until the end of each post.

Update #5!


Got the SS ticket from Prof Elm.
Went to Olivine, and Prof Oak stopped me to give me my National Dex.
Got on the boat, woah cool 3D. Old man bumped into me then told me his daughter was missing! I ran off to find her.
Couldn't find her in any of the first 8 rooms on that floor so I went downstairs, only to find a sailor who wanted to battle!
Woah, Hoenn pokemon, this guy was easy, his Raticate critted my Primeape wih a double edge though, no exp for him.
Fought another guy, still no girl.
Fought several more people, and finally found the girl with the captain, she was screaming his ear off.
She demanded that we play hide-and-go-seek and forced me to shut my eyes.
Found her and her father gave me this uhh rain coat made of metal, so I thought I'd use it for my next walk in a thunderstorm! Thanks old man!
Anyway, the boat landed and I left, finding myself in Kanto, ah, Kanto.
Ran up a ways on the dock and was struck when I saw Suicune! Eusine was slightly behind it. It ran off quickly though.
So there I was in Vermillion City. Where I had stood so many times before in a past life.
I had to get Croconaw out because he's my only pokemon that knows cut. I cut a tree blocking the entrance to the gym and went inside.
First battle was a double battle, I love these! None of my pokemon fainted, but I did have to heal after the battle was over.
Second battle was easier, then I found the two switches and moved on to Lt Surge.
He looked just the same as he did when I was Red. Now with added Sunglasses.
I defeated Lt Surge without too much of a problem, but I needed to level my pokemon a bit.
Next came Saffron. Ugh, Psychics. I defeated two trainers and then I got lost, I hate this gym.
Found my way to another two trainers and the gym leader! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Sabrina.......
Ouuuccccccchhhhhhhhhhh Sabrina... Her Espeon one-shotted EVERY single pokemon on my team...
This was going to be extremely hard...
I decided to go off in search of some training, and maybe find a different gym.
Made it to Lavender town after a LOT of poison type battles.
Attempted to make my way through rock tunnel. (Why are there level 14 MACHOKES AND MAROWAK in here????????)
Got to Route 10 through Rock Tunnel and healed at the pokecenter before heading on my through millions and millions trainer battles!... Okay, maybe just six, but that's too many! :(
And on to Cerulean! Misty, your hot ass is going down! Well nevermind then, everyone was gone!
I backtracked to Route 9 and then surfed, where I found a level 15 Seaking... but I'd seen level 20ish Seaking in Johto, so whatever...
Found the powerplant and went inside. I talked to everyone there and it appeared that somethin had been stolen from the generator.
The police officer at the front stopped me before I left and told me to check out the Cerulean Gym.
Went back inside the gym, where some apparently foreign Team Rocket member bumped into me. I let him pass, he couldn't have been up to something.
Went North to Nugget Bridge for some training, I think I saw the rocket guy there, but I wasn't sure. I asked a Rocket member looking out over the bridge if he knew anything. This guy was talking gibberish and then pulled out his pokeballs. I could only assume he wanted to fight me.
I destroyed his Golbat and he told me his "secret plan". Oh! This was the guy the police officer was looking for. The part was in the gym, and I told him Team Rocket was broken up. He left for his home country.
Went back to the gym and picked up the machine part. Returned it to the Power Plant and tried the gym again, everyone was still gone.
Going back northward, I was disappointed that Nugget Bridge wasn't used like it was in gen 1, but as I went further I ran into the new version of it on the route to the North, yay.
Defeating that was easy enough, got a nugget too!
Continued on a ways to find my dreams squashed, Misty apparently had a boyfriend! or something... She told me to come fight her at the Cerulean Gym.
The gym trainers were easy, and Misty herself was easyish.
Flew to Lavender town and got my Kanto radio card.
Flew to Vermilian city and defeated the snorlax.
Flew to Saffron City then headed West to Celadon.
Ran to the gym where I saw a familiar face! This pervert guy that has been in every version of Kanto! What "strong" trainers??? THEY BASTARDIZED HIM!!!
The gym was rediculous to navigate, but the trainers and Erika were easy enough.
That's where I'll wrap up this update, I'll probably have defeated the E4 by the next one!

I actually belive it or not have 2 new team members

Meet http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f1/Spr_4h_123_f.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_123_f.png) and http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/e1/Spr_4h_198_m.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_198_m.png) I replaced Ledian for Scyther for multiple reasons

1.Ledian was getting a little sucky just a EXP Absorber,yeah i know same with Jumpluff but it's my catcher/Annoyer + one of my ony ways to kill Rock and Water Types

2.I was bug catching and I caught Scyther It had Technician so thats already better then Ledian

3.It could be used for HM's like Rock Smash and CUt because with the boost the base power is 80 and 100 respetively

4.THis could be really useful for catching

Anyways

Jasmine was defeated easier then expected I honestly though this would be my hardest Gym Battle because of Magnemite's T-Bolt and Steelix's Bulk but FIre Blast Pulled through.

Pyrce real push over Gyrados takes Neutral from Ice so used Bite till he died.

Rockets belive it or not got Murkrow and Scyther to 34 and 29 respectivly.Now time to go to Blackthrorn

About three years ago all I did was go on bulbapedia and read up on stuff. I'm like an encyclopedia when it comes to pokemon xD. The three hour thing I read up a while back.

Don't worry though I play basketball and go out now. Lmao aaahh freshman year

Okay guys ! After finally finding my Heart Gold after losing it , I found out that it's file is gone .... DAMN IT ! D:<

So I'mma restart ! I'm still doing a Fire Monotype Challenge though :D

Obviously picked Boy as my Gender :)
Named myself Decode for apparent reasons !
Accidently broke off the tip of my stylist D;
Cussed at my DS for a bit...
Continued playing after breathing through a bag for awhile .
Walked down stairs and talked to Mommy :3
Changed the text speed to FAST because I hate how slow it is !!!
Went outside and got raped by Lyra's retarded Marill ^-^
Went to Prof . Elm's place and got my first pokemon !
I recieved my Cyndaquil and named him Minato <3
Got my PokeGear from Mommy , then headed out to train ! ;D
Trained Minato for awhile then decided to go to Mr . Pokemon 's house & do whatever I was supposed to :P
Some old dudes talked to me about Pokemon , then one of em ' gave me a PokeDex & A special eg....Creepy o.o
But on my way home , some kid bumped into me and challenged me to a battle D:<<
And obviously , I beat him [;
Back at Elm's place , the Police accuse me of stealing a Pokemon ,and turns out thekid that I battled is the culprit !
That's all for now !

Ya I just proved Jumpluff's worth During Clair.

Jump vs Gyra
Sleep Powder -> Asleep
Leech Seed -> Asleep
Switch to Scyther -> Asleep
Wing Attack 44% -> Dragon Rage (I can take 2 more with Leech Seed)
Wing attack -> Dragon rage (Gyra died to Leech Seed)

Gyra vs Dragonair (Obvious thing to take down Dragonair)

(Dragoniar) Dragon Pulse 20% -> Ice Fang (2 hit KO)
T-Wave -> Ice fang (Dragonair died)

Murkrow vs Dragonair (I dont want Gyra in because she's Para'd)
(Murkrow) Fly -> Fire Blast Missed
Fly 30% -> Fire Blast (Survived with Red HP)
Fly -> Dragon Pulse Missed
FLy 30% -> Dragon Pulse (Murkrow Died)

Scyther vs Dragonair (Scyther can revenge kill because he's fast + More Attack then Murkrow)

(Dragonair) Fire Blast missed (F*** Ya) -> WIng Attack KO

Jumpluff vs Kingdra
(Jumpluff) Leech Seed -> Dragon pulse (25%)
Sleep Powder missed -> Dragon Pulse (35%) (Maximum Damage Variation)

*Stall from here skip to End*

I lost Jumpluff,Gyra,and Scyther all I have is Togetic and Kingra is at 15% she used all her Potions and I surpased her berry she has 2 Sp.Def Drops from Shadow Ball

Kingdra used Hyper Beam (Missed) ->Togetic KO with Shadow Ball

Good Game Clair

Currently:Detoring the Caves of Johto to train my new Dratini (I didnt mention I caught one)

It's annoying to get your team for a dark type whereas the ice type is a little bit harder because not many are available and you'll be stuck with few people on your team for a while.

I had glaceon and dewgong all the way up until the 8th gym.

MVPhttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/e1/Spr_4h_198_m.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_198_m.png)Obvious type advantage really helped.

MVP http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a5/Spr_4h_176.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_176.png)4 Ancient Power Boosts and 2 Crits :O

LVPhttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f1/Spr_4h_123_f.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_123_f.png) Original plan was to use an X Attack and Sweep but Ariados got a Crit.THings arnt looking good for Aegis

Edit:What was supposed to be the easiest battle was pretty hard

MVPhttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f1/Spr_4h_123_f.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_123_f.png) This is where Aegis really shined if I must say.Honorable mention other than Aegis was Cotton who granted the win against Machamp

LVP http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/29/Spr_4h_148.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_148.png) Kairyu's Extreme Speed is So wimpy I swear.Im this close to replacing Extrem Speed for something else.

OMG another Edit:Who could have been the hardest so far is the easiest.

MVPhttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/29/Spr_4h_148.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_148.png) WIthout T-Wave Houndoom's Nasty Plot Would have caused me to Rage Quit this challenge

Hows it sound?
2 Steel/Bug Types? Plus your Team Seems a little to Pysical but hey thats comming from the guy with 1 1/2 Special Attackers xD

Beat Lance Holy Milktank,Longest battle ever (About Hour and 30 mins)

MVP http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/ef/Spr_4h_130_m_s.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_130_m_s.png) Intimidate Stalled his 3 Dragonites and Aerodactyl + WaterFall killed Charizard

LVP No one cause everyone did there part (even if it was Fodder)

~~~~ Elite 4 Finish~~~~~~

MVP http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/1/15/Spr_4h_189.png (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/File:Spr_4h_189.png)Despite not being an MVP for any "one" battle this poke was very,very useful

LVP Again No-one all of my Pokemon was MVP (Sirocco for Will,Cosmos for Koga,Aegis for Bruno,Kairyu for Karen,Rage for Lance,and Cotton for the whole thing)

Well Emoxy was right ater defeating the Elite 4 my game went to the Title Screen.I would ask for Champion title but thats not Fair I suppose so Now I'm thinking which type i should choose before I restart for good.(I mainly did this chalenge to see if you could get passed the E4 without savong but this was fun)

I will either choose Rock,Steel,or Ground.ANy sudgestions?

.EJ
June 5th, 2010, 05:54 PM
He chose the best bug pokemon available.

Venomoth and Beedrill look cool and all but they're weak. His Forretress is more of
a wall though.

Shiari Xero
June 5th, 2010, 06:03 PM
I could take out Butterfree later on for Venomoth, since Venomoth is better in almost every stat.. But inside the Johto-Dex, most bugs are Pysically oriented so yea =\ But i got the best available in the Johto-dex so i hope they do good

chaos11011
June 5th, 2010, 06:06 PM
I know i relised that after I went on Serebii to see any other Bugs

I chose Steel.Is it alright if I transfer a Pilpup and Rilou egg from my Jap.HG?(Yes no Metagross I'm currently using on in Diamond) My Team will be

Empoleon (Titan)
Lucario (Aura)
Magnezone (Alpha)
Scizor (Aegis)
Steelix (AltEisen)
Skarmory (Pheonix)

Yes Aegis is making a Come Back (I will try to Record gyms if I can if I do Im changing AltEisen and Aegis names so AltEisenSpirit's fans wont Flame me for Originality)

HELLO!! Just thought I'd do an update before I forget...

* I finally challenged Whitney...All I have to say is wow. The fight was pretty challenging, but still fun. Clove ended up doing really well, thanks to her Rivalry ability. Basically I manged to take Whitney's Clefairy in two turns just using double kick, but then Miltank came out and I had to wear it down with a couple of growls & tail whips. I managed to take out Miltank aswell managing to hang on with 1 HP left! It was crazy. I was almost certain that Miltank would get a crit...
* After the gym battle I wandered around Goldenrod a bit, and decided to go in the underground to get a haircut for Rue.
* I stopped in the Department store and got a TM27 (Return). Yeah I know it's Saturday, but my DS clock is set a day ahead, so I took advantage of it.
* Picked up the SquirtBottle
* Finally left Goldenrod
* Stopped by the Pokeathlon Dome for a sec, but decided not to participate in anything yet.
* Battled some trainers in the National Park and grabbed the Quick Claw & Soothe Bell.
* Caught Sudowoodo
* Grabbed HM06 (Rock Smash) because I forgot to grab it when I was in Violet City previously.
* Made it to Ecruteak City
* Went into Burned Tower to meet Morty and Eusine.
* Defeated my Rival (Snow) and Rue evolved after the battle.
* Went to the basement of the Tower and the Legendary Beasts fled.
* Traveled to Mt. Mortar and got HM04 (Strength) & TM65 (Shadow Claw)
* Went into the Dance Theatre and defeated the Rocket terrorizing the Kimono Girl (Also Rue Evolved, again!)
* Got HM03 (Surf) From the old guy in the Dance Hall.
* Went into the Pokemon Center and decided to rest...for now.

Allright, time for an update before i go to bed.

Woke up in the middle of the night, to an old man standing in my room.. WTF!?
He asks if im a boy or a girl.. ok do i look like a boy? My name? Its LUPPI! Stupid son of a... where the hell is my mom? How did you get in here?! Welcome to the world of pokemon?!..I live here.. ugh take your Marill and leave.
He finally gets the message and leaves. I get up and walk downstairs.. oh moms up, thanks for letting the possible pedo upstairs.. When i can..im getting the hell out of here...
Mom says our neighbor Elm came looking for me.. god its the middle of the night.
Screw it, im too paranoid to go to sleep now, so i get my things and i head outside...
and im promptly knocked on my *** by a rouge marill. Crap its out for blood!
My "friend" Ethan comes out of Elms place, and, apparently the Marill is his cause it runs after him.. God keep a leash on that thing.
I walk over to Elms after dusting off. Out of everyone in this town, i can only get along with Elms family, and Ethan.
I walk in and up to Elm who surprises me with a gift, he says that hes going to give me a Pokemon as a gift, since im old enough to be a trainer now, and he has always known that i wanted one. I want to be a Bug pokemon master.. I dont know why but when im out traveling with mom.. seeing them... they always fascinated me. I hope he gives me a Spinarak, or.. ooh ooh! a Pineco!
....A totodile...chikorita..or cyndaquil... oh well.. -.-'
Before i can choose, he gets an email, and answers it..

He walks back to me and asks me to go to his friends house as a favor.. Alright, i do like you so thats ok i guess. i better get something out of it though
I choose a Totodile, and then i leave with it in tow, and i talk to Ethan alittle, and also show it to mom.. who i didnt want to but oh well. She gives me my Pokegear, and then actually tells me how to use the phone.. As im walking out of town i see a Red haired kid standing next to Elms lab, and hes staring in. i walk up to ask him whats up, and he asks me what im staring at and actually shoves me out of the way.. never hear of "Dont hit girls" thanks you ***
I walk out of town after Elm gives me his phone number

Nothing much but a few Hoothoots..
I arrive in Cherrygrove, and an old dude calls me a rookie and shows me around town....then pawns off "Runnin" shoes on me. I toss them in the trash and i run out of town. He stops me and gives me a map card for my Pokegear, allright thats kinda useful
Not much here either, Hoothoot, Rattatas and...
O.O!
Spinarak! OMG OMG I WANT ONE!!!
...No pokeballs.. FUUU-
Well i had to knock the poor thing out and frustrated i storm off to Mr.Pokemons house.
When i get there, he gives me an egg...and the pervert who was in my room gives me a pokedex.. ohwell atleast it gets wifi.
I leave, and he mumbles something about beating up a guy named Red for quitting the quest.
Oh well not my problem
Crap, Elm calm down, ill be back in a sec.
I run back to Cherrygrove and i get bumped into by the red haired jerk.. crap
Ok come on, lets go. I have a pokemon now, ill kick your ***
I beat his Chikorita mercilessly
As hes walking by, after spouting that hes going to be the best trainer ever, i snatch his trainer card, and i see his name...Rivers.. hm..
he comes back and takes it back running off, and i run off to New Bark remembering Elm was frantic.
I get there and run inside, and a cop that steps infront of me and says i did it.. wait what?! I GOT THIS FROM ELM AS A GIFT.
God Johto police are morons, Ethan had to step in and "prove" my innocence. Then i tell the moron Rivers name and he runs off. I give the egg to Elm and he says something about my pokedex, and a gym leader challenge. Hell yea ill take that challenge. I leave and i tell my mom im leaving, i had a big grin on my face.
I leave town and Ethan shows me how to catch pokemon. Then he gives me pokeballs, and... o.o Spinarak.. I know where i must go
I run through the route and north of Cherrygrove, and not soon after i get onto Route 30, i see a Spinarak.. and i catch it! ^w^
I name him Decs (Pronounced "Decks") and then i head back to Cherrygrove to rest for the night.

Short Update


Flew to Vermilion City.
Entered Diglett's Cave, ugh, some Digletts have Arena Trap.
Well that was easy! And I was in Route 2, really close to Pewter City!
I went into a house where a weird fat man gave me a nugget!
Found out I needed Cut to get onto the main road, great... I left Croconaw in the Box. Backtracked and came back with Croconaw.
Made it to Pewter! The gym was rediculously easy.
To Viridian!
Fought my way through Viridian Forest and the route after it.
The gym was blocked off, so I hit up the Trainer House. And I lost, the guys last pokemon had just a sliver of health left, ugh...
Went to Pallet Town where I met Red's mom and searched his room... and slept in his bed...
Then I went and met Blue's sister, and then slept in Blue's bed....
Surfed down to Cinnabar I guess just to be able to fly there. I met Blue, I neglected tell him I slept in his bed...
Flew back to Celadon to tak the Cycling road down to Fuschia. Got some training in along the way.
Defeated Janine at the gym.
I only had 3 gyms left, and to my knowledge two were unavailable at this point, so I flew back to Saffron to give Sabrina another go. Mmmmmmm Sabrina again.
Ugh, lost again, Psychic is way too strong.

Annnnd here we go. This update will be mostly text, with screenshots thrown in from time to time, when I feel like it'll be funny.


Well, after me and Totodile spent the night at the Pokemon Center, we decided to explore the town before challenging the Gym Leader.
Walked into some houses unannounced because...well...if they didn't want me to come in, they should have locked their doors!
Some random person asked me if I wanted to trade a Bellsprout for an Onix. First off, I don't have a Bellsprout. Second, I'd be trading a plant for a gigantic OMGWTFBBQ rock snake, which eventually evolves into an OMGWTFBBQ metal snake. Yeah, no dice. Sorry.
The guy sitting at the table told me that traded Pokemon can disobey you if you don't have the right badges. This begs the question, why the hell would I trade a Pokemon that actually would listen to me, for one that wouldn't?
I entered the Trainer Academy, only to be verbally attacked by some guy with zoned out eyes, asking me if I wanted to join their group. I'm assuming that 'group' is interchangeable with the word 'cult' in this city, so I turned down his offer. Then...they wouldn't let me leave.
It's been two hours, and I haven't left this damn Academy.
I finally said yes and joined their little cult. Hey, anybody wanna know what the meanings of the words 'cult' and 'religion' are?

Cult: An unpopular religion
Religion: A popular cult


Knowledge is power...
After talking with an old lady, I found out that Faulkner, the guy that's the Gym Leader here, inherited his Gym position. Does that mean he only got where he is today because he's related to someone famous? That could easily apply to *insert unnecessarily famous politician or celebrity here*! Ha, I'm so clever and witty!
After leaving town, Totodile and I took a small stroll. We managed to pick up the words 'Ruins of Alpha' and 'tourist attraction'. Well, technically, I'm a tourists. To the Ruins we go!
Oh yeah, Protip: Don't confuse the words with 'tourist' with 'terrorist'. They are not interchangeable!

...**** you too, Ekans. Stupid purple snakes and their venom...


Ha! Too bad for you, I had an Antidote! Now your powers are no more, Ekans. I used the Antidote first, then a Potion. Then the Ekans got a Critical Hit off of a Poison Sting. No big deal, Totodile can live through a Critical Hi---

...GOD-****ING-DAMMIT!


We had to take another trip to the Pokemon Center due to Poisoning. I think even Nurse Joy is starting to get sick of it.
We did some quick level grinding, but not just for level grinding's sake. We're looking for a Pokemon. A very special Pokemon.

:pink_blankstare: NOT YOU!

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-1-23.png?t=1275828456
Much better.


Anyways, like I was saying, we're looking for a very rare Pokemon. It should be passing by any minute now. I only got a brief description from one of the Academy students (which I don't really trust, seeing as he also claimed he was talking to baby Jesus in the corner), but he did say that it appears at this time of day. Any...minute...now!
We've been here for three hours...still not here. Oh wait...I think I see it! Yes, this has to be it! Finally, my chance to catch a Wo--

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-1-22.png?t=1275828999

...I have no more words to describe the rage I am feeling at this moment.


Totodile and I finally trudged back to the Pokemon Center, both of us disheartened by our lack of a new teammate. We finally asked someone else, who told us that the Pokemon only appears at night...we wasted three hours of our lives, three hours we can never get back, and now we find out that it can only be caught at night!?
Me and Totodile are gonna crash at the Pokemon Center until it's nightfall. Mark my words, that Pokemon shall be mine before the end of today!
