Grrr... I'd love to do this, but I'm already doing a playthrough of SS and have a beaten HG, and I can't trade my stuff over to SS so I can't use my HG...

Well, I'm back for Part 2 of my Sunday update. Sorry it's a bit later than expect. I sort of...passed out in the middle of the afternoon. How, don't ask me.


Now it's finally nighttime, that Pokemon will show up. I just know it! I made a beeline for Route 32 and began walking through the tall grass. It's just gotta be here...

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-1-24.png?t=1275875184
Yeah! Wooper, Wooper, Wooper! It has finally arriv---

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-1-25.png?t=1275875505
But. but....what the hell!? WHY!? LEAVE ME ALONE YOU ****ING SNAKE!

http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu36/DarkChidori1/Untitled-1-26.png?t=1275875581
Wait....wut?

And that concludes today's update. Yeah, you waited almost twelve hours for me to catch a Wooper.

Hehe I love to exploit game mechanics...

* I walked back to Newbark Town and gave my mother all of my money.
* Made it back to Ecruteak City, and deposited all but one of my pokemon. I then challenged Morty, defeated his Gastly, and first Haunter, then purposly lost to his Gengar to gain easy exp :p and repeated this over again for my team (Excluding Thresh and Clove. Thresh because he only had Night Shade, and Clove because of her Rivalry ability, which halves her attack when fighting male pokemon.)
* I had to go to the Burned Tower to train Thresh up to level 29 (He learned Shadow Ball, and I finally let him evolve.)
* I then had to go to Route 38 to train Clove.
* Finally challenged Morty...Thresh 1HKOed his entire team.
* Saved in the Pokemon Center.

Ehh sorry nothing too interesting has happened, but training took up most of my spare time today...

HELLO PEOPLE IM BACK! Didn't have internet access yesterday, hence the lack of updates.

Remember I'm like an encyclopedia yo. 'Sides, Dewgong did whatever lapras would do for my team.

Plus I was too lazy to actually look for it on friday/cheat time.

@emoxy: reminds you of killerbee? You stupid idiot... =P

Hehe I also read bulbapedia quite a bit but I think I missed the safari zone part. And is there supposed to be a link at the idiot part o.o cos I can't see it. ><

Alright, thanks for the tip .EJ ;D

Alright, i got my final team in mind.
Forretress
Butterfree
Scizor
Ariados
Heracross
Pinsir

Hows it sound?

You have insanely powerful attacking pokes. Lol. Must get Bullet Punch on Scizor!

And speaking about my bug challenge, I realised I forgot to use Masquerain - a Bug/Flying that does Hydro Pump/Ice Beam! OMG. Could've made my life against Fire-types so much easier. Now I totally regret not using it -.-

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)

Ouch I'm so sorry to hear that.

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

Compoundeyes would be useful @ Sleep Powder, but Venomoth carries more damage output. I didn't replace Butterfree by Venomoth because of that.

Hey anyone wants to hear something halarious?I wsa going to trade my egg so I stepped one step to walk up to the trade place and the Egg Hatches >.> Now I have to make a new Piplup egg.

Lol! That totally sucks. I'm on emulator so I guess I can't feel the pain of eggs.

And Arcelio I totally laughed out at your Ekans part. Keep up the good updates :D

I stumbled upon the Dark type Pokemon list a few days ago, and it totally made me want to do the Dark challenge. Gosh. I am so undecisive.. Let me think about it first. No updates yet..

And I'll be away in vacation for the next 3 days, so I think I'm gonna have to read TONS of updates from everyone when I come back. ><

You probably should do that because everyone that's not emulating does the same thing.

I'd like to sign up for this |・ω・`)
Username: LeeBee
Type: Ghost
Version: SoulSilver

Would I be able to trade over an egg or two for this, or would that be against the rules for ghost as Gastly is available fairly early on?

.EJ
June 8th, 2010, 06:35 AM
Trade one egg, and capture a gastly. =]

LeeBee
June 8th, 2010, 06:56 AM
Will do!
Now.. which Ghost to decide on... Maybe Drifloon? ε-(´・`) it strikes me as a pretty good option for the early game, as it actually has a few non ghost attacks early on (well.. constrict, and then Gust- which will of course be lovely against Bugsy!) that will be a great help against the army of normals that seem to be prominent near the start of the game, and a total nuisance for low level ghosts that learn little other than Ghost moves to begin with.

Is breeding egg moves on to it okay, or would that be against the rules? (・_・?)
Ah, scrap that question; Found the answer in the thread earlier "Yeah, you can breed for egg moves. I did it for Sneasel and Ice punch."

Okay, my Ghost type 'Challenge' begins.. although, who could call using the most wonderful Pokemon type a challenge? ヾ(´・ω・`)


Picked the Female trainer and named her 'Peggy' (after Peggy Giggles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Candy_Spooky_Theater) - If you know who that is, you totally deserve a cookie! ♥)
"Peggy is an awkward, lonely girl that spends much of her time playing with a broken doll-her only friend before Ethan moved to New Bark town. Her mother was always very doting, however Peggy seemed cold, almost careless toward her. All that she seemed to show any real affection for was her ugly doll, always at her side, seeming to have a wicked smile upon it's lips..."

Picked Totodile as my starter.

Met and named my rival "Silver". (because I'm lazy!)
Did everything up to 'returning to New bark town', 'continuing on my journey' and gaining the ability to trade Pokemon!
*Wipes brow* Phew! Thank goodness that's over!
Peggy bumps in to a woman that hands her a small grey egg...
"Peggy looked up at the woman, a tall creature with an awkward elegance about her. A slight smile touching her lips, perhaps a smirk more than any sort of welcome greeting. She held out her long, gloved hand, glancing down at Peggy's Totodile with a look of disdain, "Here.." She handed Peggy a small grey egg that seemed to move more than the girl was comfortable with, "..I have a feeling this Pokemon would serve you better." Peggy didn't know what to say, her usually frosty expression seemed to curl into one of confusion. "W-what do you mean?" Peggy caught her breath, holding the egg tight to her chest. The mysterious woman looked away, shaking her head, "Give me Totodile, and you'll soon find out." She turned a glance to the egg and snorted a pained half laugh, shaking her head once more. Peggy took one quick look to Totodile, nodding firmly before looking to the woman, "O-okay..." and with that Tototdile, and the unusual woman were gone, Peggy was left with nothing more than the moonlight and the strange, throbbing egg for comfort."
Basically, I traded Totodile away for my egg, after having caught a Pidgey (which now lives in my box..)
After getting my egg, I continued to run around (As I had already got it to the 'It's almost hatching stage'..) until it hatched in to my 'Starter'.
The Egg hatched...!
"Peggy paced the floral streets of Cherrygrove, she couldn't sleep wondering what would happen to Totodile. As cold as she came across, Peggy had a warmer heart than many would give her credit for. She finally sat down, sighing deeply, placing the throbbing egg on the ground. She held up her companion, the doll she was given as a baby. It's broken, misshapen face seemed to give an eerie glow in the moonlight, judging her earlier descision to trade her Pokemon, the first Pokemon she had ever been given, the first Pokemon that seemed to genuinly have any interest in her, away. She looked to the egg, glancing away quickly. From the corner of her eye, 'Is it hatching?!' Peggy took her hand to her mouth, stifling a gasp as the egg began to crack. As the cracks became bigger, deeper in the grey orb she clutched her doll to her chest as an awful, beautiful tone came from the egg. Peggy closed her eyes, her knuckles turning white as she clutched the doll tighter still. Time seemed to stop still. After what seemed like a lifetime, Peggy peeped an eye open, and then the other. Before her, comfortingly giggling and rubbing it's long, ethereal locks against her arm in an affectionate greeting, and unusual Pokemon she had never seen before..."W-who are you?" Peggy squeeked, the Pokemon simply answered "..Misdreavus?"

Just so everyone knows, the last Wooper that I caught, I kind of...forgot to save. Whoops? I caught another Wooper though, so I'll try and make it seem like I didn't screw up. Just play along, and pretend like it's always been female.


Well, last time, you saw my epic capturing of a Wooper (which was ruined by a damn Ekans). What you guys didn't see was my nicknaming skills. Wooper's nickname will be revealed at the end. That's just more incentive to read the whole thing, right?

Me and my team took a quick trip to the Pokemon Center, then to Dark Cave. Rock-type Pokemon are easy-pickings for Wooper's Water Gun attack, so leveling up should be easy.
I got the whole team up to Level 16, with a few trips between Dark Cave and Violet City's Pokemon Center. Now, before challenging Faulkner, I'm gonna go see the sights, namely, that gigantic freaking tower. I mean seriously, is there a reason as to why it's so unnecessarily large?
Okay, am I seriously supposed to believe that a Bellsprout, a living, breathing Pokemon, became a pillar? Man, those cult fanatics must have put some good drugs in this city's water supply.
Wooper got Paralyzed when some stupid Gastly used Lick attack on her. I took her to the Pokemon Center, got her healed up, and we went straight back to Sprout Tower.
After going down the ladder on the second floor, I found a Paralyz Heal. That means that we didn't have to walk all the way back to the Pokemon Center...Gastly, you are officially more dead then every single Ekans that has ever crossed our paths.

That's about it for today. Once again, sorry for the short update. I'm just really short on time these days.

Ahhh sorry that I haven't posted in awhile :3 Lot's of stuff happened though...Oh and I'm going to try and be a bit more creative from now on.


* After retracing my steps and searching for hidden items with my new Dowsing Machine I decided to travel to Olivine.
* On the way to Olivine I met an old man babbling about how he was an owner of a Safari Zone, and he wanted to give me his number...I can't be the only one who thinks that it's wrong for an old man to exchange phone numbers with a young boy...
* Stopped in the Miltank ranch, and nursed the sick Miltank back to health with oran berries.
* After buying some MooMooMilk I said my goodbyes to the simple ranchers and made my way to Olivine.
* Once I reached the city I met up with my rival, and had learned that Jasmine was off at the lighthouse tending to a sick pokemon.
* I finally decided to go after the missing gym-leader.
* I got to the lighthouse, and fought my way to the top. Once I reached the top I met the gym leader. I then decidided to go to Cinawood to get the SecretPotion.
* I had to brave the rough sea to get the the city, but I made it.
* Once I got there I caught a glimpse of the legendary pokemon, Suicune...It dashed away right before my eyes. Once it was gone I was aproched by Eusine, who then challenged my to a battle...Thresh destroyed his team.
* I walked around a bit, and finally found the pharmacy.
* Once I got the medicine I decided to challenge the gym.
* Chuck was no match for Rue...

Ehh sorry to end it here, but I gotta go. I'll finish later.

Haven't had all that much time to get on Pokemon today, so it'll be a pretty short, uneventful update this evening 。゜(>д<)゜。


After a fairly short walk, arrived in Violet City.
"Peggy and her newly acquired Misdreavus took to the road, unable to sleep or settle for the night due to the stream of emotions running through her head. She couldn't take her eyes off the levitating Pokemon at her side, conflicting emotions as to the Eerie woman's earlier words, "..I have a feeling this Pokemon would serve you better." What exactly did she mean? As her feet took her away from the small town, grass brushed against her side. Peggy hardly took any notice, the tiny, floating Pokemon seemed just as puzzled as her Trainer, new to the world and unsure of the life that she had in front of her. The grass seemed to grow taller, Peggy glanced quickly upward, stumbling in to a young boy with a fairly self assured Rattata at his side. Peggy paused, glancing quickly down to Misdreavus..."
Climbed Sprout Tower, and recieved TM Flash from the Elder. While there, captured Two Gastly, that will become staple members of my party!
"As Misdreavus floated softly by her Trainer's side, she couldn't help but feel a smug sense of satisfaction. Although she was very young, there were few Pokemon that stood for long infront of her Psywave. Peggy still didn't seem sure of her, but what had she done? She had heard Peggy whisper to herself, speaking of 'Totodile'. What was a Totodile exactly?! She knew what a Pidgey was now, she knew that she had very little to fear from the critters that stalked the grass, none of them yet had seemed to have the nerve to harm her! She shook her head a little, and refocused as she glanced upward, almost gasping as she looked past her trainer, and upward to the large tower infront of them. Lost in thought and confusion, she had almost ignored the fact they were even in a city, but now noticing this place, she knew she was in for some fun! The sensation of her own type, Ghost Pokemon, was all around it. For the first time in her short life, she felt a comfortable sense of mischief, and excitement for the things to come..."
Honestly, it was a veeeeeery long trip to Violet City. With only having Misdreavus and her lousy Psywave, battles were taking forever. With it's equally lousy 15pp, it was trips to the Pokecenter every few battles. Long, arduous and not something I'd like to repeat! Huuzah for Astonish, though. A shame it wont do much good against the upcoming Gym leader... I'll have to train Gastlyx2 up to around 13 so as to get Curse, and hope to stand a chance against the annoying normal types!
Am going to start having a look for Duskull on 'Winners Path', hopefully it's as common as I'm lead to believe. *Le sigh* I don't really like the Pokewalker.

You can't do the Monotype Challenge with a Shaymin. Not only is that breaking the Legendary Rule, but you can get at least two Grass-type Pokemon before facing Faulkner.

So, no to Shaymin, and no the the Legendaries. If you don't want to follow the rules, then don't post.

:)

This is the actual update of everything that happened from Sprout Tower, all the way up to Ilex Forest. Enjoy. This update won’t have screenshots either, because I typed this up on Microsoft Word. Pokecommunity needs a way to just drag and drop pictures from my computer directly onto the site. It’d make updates so much easier. Oh, and just as an extra note, I’ll be actually trying to catch as many Pokémon as possible, to make it seem more like a ‘Let’s Play’.


· Well, after raging over Gastly Paralyzing Derp, we made our way farther into Sprout Tower, defeating Sage Chow on the first floor. Heh, Chow. Funny name. Even Derp is laughing at Chow. Speaking of Derp, she used Slam attack on all Chow’s Bellsprout and took them out before they were five seconds out of their balls.
· Nabbed an X-Accuracy on the second floor. Whoever keeps dropping things on the floor has really good taste in items.
· Oh Christ, it’s the purple rat again! This time, you shall be captured, rat!
· Derp killed him. Whoops. Maybe I should’ve just thrown a Pokéball at him?
· Derp used Slam! And destroyed all of Sage Edmond’s Pokémon. Sucks for him, I guess.
· On the fourth (?) floor, I beat down Sages Jin, Neal, and Troy.
· Found another little rat. This time, I just threw a Pokéball at it. Caught it on the first ball.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/archive/b/b3/20100201143358%21Spr_4h_019_m.png
Height: 1'00" Weight: 7.7lbs
Habitat: Grasslands Type: Normal

Rattata is a small, but unspecialized rodent. Its most notable feature is its large teeth. Like most rodents their teeth grow continuously throughout its life, and must be constantly worn down by gnawing. It has long whiskers and a long, slightly curled tail. Rattata has purple fur on its back, and cream colored fur on its stomach. This coloration (dark on top, light on bottom) is a common protective mechanism for many small animals.


· Rattata came with a gift! A Chilan Berry! That’s always awesome. Why doesn’t Rattata have an ability named ‘Scavenger’? Seriously, isn’t that what rats do, scavenge?
· Oh great, the redhead’s back. Now, he’s whining about other people, and how they’re weak. Silver, if everyone’s weak, but I beat you, does that mean I’m stronger than everyone?
· I challenged Elder Li, and promptly beat him down with Derp Slam. Does that count as not respecting your elders? Derp gained a level from slamming down Bellsprout, so Totodile will be taking over for a bit. But first, I gotta go catch me some Pogeymanz.
· Oh yeah, and Li gave me the TM for Flash. Flash sucks though. So what if it lights up caves? A flashlight does the same exact thing and, contrary to popular belief, does not suck. Found me an Escape Rope, but, instead of using it, I actually walked down all the stairs. I could use this rope for later caves.
· Left Sprout Tower, and sped off to the Pokémon Center. Healed up my team, even though they didn’t really take any damage (besides Slam missing from time to time), and we headed off the Pokémon Mart. We stocked up on some Pokéballs, and trekked to Route 31, to catch some new Pokémon.
· In a timespan of twenty minutes, me, Totodile, and Derp caught all the different types of Pokémon on Route 31 that we could. Here’s a list of ‘em.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/archive/2/26/20100128134518%21Spr_4h_013.png
Height: 1'00" Weight: 7.1lbs
Habitat: Forest Type: Bug/Poison

Weedle is a small, yellow larva Pokémon with a segmented body. Weedle has dark, circular eyes, many little pink feet and a pink, round nose. Weedle has a stinger on both its tail and head. Its bright coloration is intended to warn off its enemies. Weedle generally prefer to remain undisturbed. They live in colonies with their evolved forms, Kakuna and Beedrill, and will recruit them to assist in their revenge if bothered.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/archive/7/7f/20100128134553%21Spr_4h_014.png
Height: 2'00" Weight: 22.0lbs
Habitat: Forest Type: Bug/Poison

Kakuna is a yellow, cone-shaped cocoon Pokémon. Kakuna has a dome-shaped head and black, triangular eyes. When a Kakuna comes close to evolving, its body gives off heat that makes it warm to the touch. Kakuna mostly stay still and wait for evolution often hanging from tree branches by long strands of silk.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/archive/a/a2/20100131174551%21Spr_4h_016.png
Height: 1'00" Weight: 4.0lbs
Habitat: Forest Type: Normal/Flying

Pidgey resembles a small, plump-bodied bird. It is a brown color, with a lighter colored throat and belly. The tips of its wings share this cream color. Both its feet and beak are a pinkish-gray color. Its plumage is fairly nondescript, particularly compared to its evolutions Pidgeotto and Pidgeot. It has black markings around its eyes and a small crest of brown and cream feathers above its eyes. It resembles other small Flying-type Pokémon such as Starly, Taillow, and Spearow. However, due to the fact that (with the exception of Spearow) these Pokémon tend to be unique to a region, it is likely that they are a result of divergent evolution. Pidgey's feet allow it to walk on the ground for a while but can also reach out and safely land on perches.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/83/Spr_4h_069.png
Height: 2'04" Weight: 8.8lbs
Habitat: Forest Type: Grass/Poison

Despite their small size, Bellsprout are versatile. Their stem is long, thin and very flexible, making then capable of swerving rapidly to avoid many attacks it is weak to or move with blinding speed to capture prey. They can use their roots to replenish moisture and health from the ground if they get hit. They can also channel their roots through the ground to trip foes. They can also use their feet as insulator.


· Well, after doing a bit of research, I found out that the only Pokémon I haven’t caught yet on this Route don’t come out until early morning, or late at night. Since I’ve got no plans on waiting around, I guess we’re off to Dark Cave.
· My ragtag group of misfits and I ventured into the appropriately named ‘Dark Cave’. After stumbling around in the dark for a while, we finally managed to find the exit. Problem is, it was actually the entrance we used earlier! Oh well, at least we caught some new Pokémon.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/1/1f/Spr_4h_074.png
Height: 1'04" Weight: 44.1lbs
Habitat: Mountain Type: Rock/Ground

Geodude usually sit still on mountain paths or in caves, which is why they are often mistaken for rocks. Geodude uses its arms to steadily climb steep mountain paths, hoisting itself over. Geodude also uses its arms to swing its fists around when angered, such as when it is carelessly stepped upon. Geodude are proud of their sturdy bodies and bash against each other in a contest of sorts to prove whose body is harder. When Geodude sleeps deeply, it buries itself halfway into the ground, and will not awaken even if it is stepped upon. In the morning Geodude rolls downhill in search of food.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/archive/b/be/20100304125851%21Spr_4h_041_m.png
Height: 2'07" Weight: 16.5lbs
Habitat: Caves Type: Bug/Flying

Zubat is a small, blue bat-like Pokémon. It has two long, skinny tails. Zubat's face lacks any eyes and a nose. The insides of Zubat's ears and undersides of its wings are purple. Zubat's wings are supported by elongated 'fingers', and four teeth can be discerned from inside its mouth, two on the lower jaw and two on the upper. Zubat is mostly nocturnal, forming colonies in perpetually dark places and hanging upside-down when asleep. When they awake, Zubat will constantly swarm around caves during the night-time. Zubat avoids sunlight and bright places because prolonged exposure to the sun causes its body to become slightly burned, and otherwise causing it to become unhealthy.


· And with those two new party members in tow, we left Dark Cave behind us. Next stop, Violet City, and then, Violet City Gym!

Next time, I'll show you how badly we kicked Faulkner's ass!

Pokemon SoulSilver hates NO$GBA, too many crashes and glitches.. I'm gonna put this challenge off until later.

I think it's playable, I've completed a Bug challenge with it so there shouldn't be any problems. Just remember to restart often.

OMG! Pokesav did not work with Nosgba but worked with Desmume! I had hard time getting everything set up,so Cherrygrove looks horrible in my eyes now,lolcakes. But I hatched the eggs and I am ready for the adventure!

Edit no$gba.ini in the no$gba folder; search for this line
SAV/SNA File Format == Raw
The word must be "Raw", note the capital-R.
Enter the game, and save once, and exit. Your .sav should now be 512KB (and hence editable by Pokesav).

If you want to transfer from Desmume, try copying the save file over; if that doesn't work, THIS (http://www.shunyweb.info/) should work. (convert from whatever file size to no$gba 512kb iirc)

I want to do the monotype challange with shaymin in soul silver. Is there a action replay code to get a level 1 shaymin in soul silver? I know the rules say no legendaries but I don't care, shaymin is my favourite! :badsmile:

EJ hates rule breaking. Besides, where's the fun with legendaries?

I guess Slam sure is powerful early on Arcelio :D And love your comment on flash and flashlights. XD

I don't want a regular legendary shaymin, it would never listen. I want to use a cheat to catch a level 1 shaymin. I'd have to use chikorita until the shaymin gets to level 10 anyway because shaymin only knows growth until level 10. I can't find an action replay code to catch a wild level 1 shaymin, so I'm going to hold off on the monotype challenge... maybe until I get the japanese white version.

I don't think you're listening.

NO LEGENDARIES. It does not matter how you obtain them. They are banned from this challenge.

Not only that, but Action Replay is also discouraged, unless you're going under a challenge where you don't have early access to a Pokemon of the type you're using (Fighting, Dark, ect, ect). Grass does not have that problem.

So, pick a different type, and don't use a Legendary Pokemon.

kthnx

I did the Ultimate Monotype Challenge when it came out, and now that there's HG/SS, can't hurt to try another challenge. Unfortunately, unlike UMC, I won't upload my gym battles, :S

I'll go on with Bugs. I remember Ledian was a BEAST in the classic, due to their ability to learn all the elemental punches. I'll go with SoulSilver, so I can get said Ledian :P

I'll be using an emulator, as I don't want to reset my SoulSilver save file, XD

One thing I want clarified though: Does changing the time on your DS count as "cheating"? I mean, I can understand if it involves getting the day siblings to appear when they shouldn't, but I'm more talking about how a lot of bug pokemon only appear in the morning, rather than night or daytime. XD

If I do the challenge with a Type with very few Pokemon and most of the Pokemon can only be obtained late in the game / after the Elite Four, can I change my starter to one of the Basic Pokemon [that are part of an evolutionary line] that are of the same type (i.e. If I do the Dark challenge, I'll replace Totodile with Sneasel or Larvitar, or if I do the Ghost type challenge, I'll replace Chikorita with Gastly or Misdreavus)?

That may be true, but considering no other bug type in generation 1 or 2 (to my knowledge), can learn a dragon OR ice type move, Ledian's kind've the only one truly capable of taking down Claire and Lance, XD

I take that back she can't learn them until after the move tutor :S And that's 32 BP each, nevermind, rofl. She'll be temporary, as unless I use Beedrill, she's the only bug type I'll have until Heracross. XD

Update Time!! :)

So after picking the Water Mono-Type challenge I chose Totodile as my Starter as I may keep him as I want Feraligater.

I decided to name my Totodile "Haribo" for some reason but i've grown on the name now. I made my way to Mr Pokemons house pretty easily showing no mercy to the many Hoothoot's and Ratattas that dared cross Haribo and I's path.

When I arrived at Mr Pokemons house he gave me a pokemon egg to give to Prof Elm and sent me on my way. I easily beat my rival who i named Silver (Inventive isn't it)

So eventually I ended up in Violet City with Haribo at level 13. Unfortunatley I haven't been able to catch any additional water pokemon for my party yet but I do plan to so don't worry :P

I made it easily through Root Tower with Haribo now at level 15 and ready for my battle with Falkner.

The two trainers at the Gym were pretty poor and were all defeated in OHKO'S then came Falkner who was also pretty easy despite a scary moment when his Pidgeotto brought Haribos health down to 7 hp but I finished it off with one last Bite :)

So with Falkner defeated I decided to take a break and post an Update on here :D

I have to say I am enjoying this very much so far and am enjoying the challenge of only using one type and will update regularly :D

One thing I have to ask EJ, Is it ok if I transfer a Remoraid egg and Seel egg over to my HeartGold please?

Forretress or Scyther~

Not sure if I want Forretress or Scyther, simply because I can't evolve Scyther on an emulator ._.; Whereas Foretress has the defensive stats to withstand some strong attacks...

Obviously, this will be HeartGold, and the bug challenge. :P

I think you have to transfer the egg, so that OT will be you.

One thing I have to ask EJ, Is it ok if I transfer a Remoraid egg and Seel egg over to my HeartGold please?

Water types are really abundant so I don't think so. Not so sure whether you can capture Remoraid, but Seel definitely in the game.

I was really impressed by how one can use Ledian after reading the Smogon article; switch in on EQ, Encore, and start setting up. Power.

I took down Clair/Lance the first time using Butterfree (Sleep Powder + Psychic, Compoundeyes rocked my world). Once I got my Armaldo, Lance falls to Rock Slides.

You can 'evolve' Scyther through save file editing after you get the Metal Coat on the S.S. Anne, but Scyther himself is already powerful if you want.. Forretress tanked Outrage pretty well on my Bug playthrough.

I think I'll be going with Forretress, just because I need some sort of defense, and Pinsir pretty much replaces Scyther xD

Forretress with Gyro Ball would be good. :) If you have time, you can breed Pineco with a Shuckle for Power Trick, which switches attack/defense stats.

Claw Fossil's in the Cliff Cave, Rock Smashable, after the National Dex.

We said we're gonna train; and we did! Me and Furry trained hard at Route 32, defeating countless Rattatas, Ekans, and Bellsprouts (ran from Mareep o.o) to reach Level 14!
And we got Falkner! Fury Swipes hit 4/5 times on his Pidgeotto :D Lucky me.

Yes, I will nickname my full team, XD Charlotte is obviously based on "Charlotte's Web" :P

Depending on if I can find a reliable recording software (Hypercam isn't very good >_>) I may upload videos of my gym battles/major battles to youtube, like I did for a bit with the Ultimate Monotype Challenge, before I was forced to remove them by youtube :P

Otherwise, I will simply upload pics, XD I will prob. not be able to get much progress until Sat/Sun, due to a busy week, but I shall try~

And a note as to why I chose chikorita: I wanted this to be a Challenge. By choosing Chikorita, my Rival has Cyndaquil, which is at an advantage to all the bugs that will be on my team. :)

Are egg moves allowed for early-hatched Pokemon?
Also, is it allowed to have TWO eggs of different Pokemon? I don't think I can get other Pokemon that evolve into a Dark type or a Dark type themselves before Cianwood.
Another thing, if I do a Fire / Water / Grass monotype challenge, can I replace my starter with a starter of another generation?

- SS doesn't hate no$gba as long as you use the antifreeze code, save often and do frequent reloads (F12, not reset).
- Egg moves are allowed, I think.. (EJ confirm this!)

I'm simultanously doing this challenge, while doing the Nuzlocke challenge. 8Dd Let's see how that goes, lol. I'll regularly update my journal (http://dithyrambos.livejournal.com/2165.html#cutid1) with what's going on. Also, I write updates as if they were pages from Neon's journal. So they're all in her voice.... and she's a bit of a Diva potty-mouth weird kid. Enjoy.

date: 06.13 | hours played: 000.47
→ Professor Elm-san wanted me to walk around with one of his Pokémon, to study how it'd effect Human-Pokémon bonding. I thought he was just going to give me a random Pokémon, but he let me choose the one I liked best! He even let me name it! I chose the super cute (and super blue!)Totodile as my companion and named it Hydrogen. :D
→ Some guy called before I could leave and run around with Hydrogen. When Professor Elm-san returned his attention to me, he put me on a mission! Σ(゜д゜;) I've got to meet a guy who doesn't even have a name, so I'll call him PokéMan-san
→ I met some kid with red hair, and what a dick that guy turned out to be. There I was, just saying hello, and he pushes me! What a jerk! Hydrogen was totally going to kick this guys ass but I was like, "no, he's not even worth it." and we moved on...
→ My PokéGear finally returned from the shop. ( ゚ヮ゚) Now I can make booty calls wang wang. Thanks mom, ILU.
→ Lots of Pokémon battles as I make my way to Cherrygrove City! But I can't catch them. I have no Pokéballs. I really wanted that Sentret. >:
→ More Pokémon battles (more Pidgey and Ratatata); Hydrogen is getting really strong. :O I've finally made it to PokéMan-san's house and he gave me an EGG. Professor Oak-san was there, too, and he gave me.... a PokéDex! Cool ****ing BEANS.
→ It's Fire Crotch again. ಠ_ಠ
→ The red-haired guy kept talking all this crap to me, saying I'm weak and saying that Hydrogen was too good for me. SCREW YOU. He challenged me to a battled and I totally kicked his butt. :Dd I swiped his trainer card as he walked away.....
→ Made it back to New Bark town, fuu! Back when I was leaving PokéMan-san's house, Professor Elm-san called to cry about a bad situation that he had gotten into. And, you know me, I'm the hero. I'll always be there to save anyone! I got back ASAP to learn a Pokémon had been stolen! OMG!
→ I immediately suspected Silver, AKA Fire Crotch, and I told Professor Elm-san as much...

Battled every wild Pokemon I encountered on the way to Mr Pokemon's house to Level up my Totodile to make the Rival battle easy :P

Made it to Cherrygrove and got the running shoes and map card from who I affectionatley call "The annoying Old Man".

Got to Mr Pokemons house with Totodile at level 8 and got the Mystery Egg and Pokedex.

On my way back to Prof. Elm's lab my journey was rudely interupted by a boy with bright red hair who called me "weak" and Challenged me to a battle. I immediately shown him how "weak" and, I must say, Lucky I am after defeating his Chikorita in 2 hits thanks to 2 Critical hits.

Made it back to Prof Elms lab and gave him the mystery egg.

Went back to Cherrygrove and traded over a Larvitar egg and a Murkrow egg (Only 2 eggs, I want to catch some dark types as well)

I am currently running around in circles waiting for my eggs to hatch :P

... I thought you were only allowed to send one egg in? O_o

And a Carvanha with Surf, Sneasel with Swords Dance, Houndour with Nasty Plot and Flamethrower, and Absol with Swords Dance hardly qualifies as a "challenge"... at least in my opinion.

Meh, Anyway, I'll probably begin the travel to Violet City tonight, having to level up Spinarak along the way kind've stinks though.

I started my challenge last night. I did a few soft resets to get a shiny cyndaquil and it was a female:) I named her Violet. I'm going to use her for hm slave and evolve her into a quilava battling wild pokemon so she can learn strength and rock smash. I hatched my eggs and was pleasantly surprised to find my skarmory shiny:) ( i traded her over from soulsilver) I named my skarmory Nyx. I hatched my onix and found that he was shiny as well and named him Steel. (my fiancee finally got some shiny eggs that he was breeding) I evolved scyther (named Yin) into scizor and Steel into steelix. I'm currently at sprout tower trying to get Steel's speed higher by battling rattatas. Here is my team in depth:

Yin (Serious scizor)
Vacuum Wave
Quick Attack
Focus Energy
Bullet Punch

Nyx (Adamant skarmory)
Leer
Peck
Sand Attack
Swift

Steel (Timid steelix)
Thunder Fang
Screech

Your right, your only allowed one (or two depending on what .EJ decides) Six eggs with all those moves is not good, cause it take the challenge out. But its ultimately up to .EJ

Update #7

So, after thrasing Bugsy and that good-for-nothing Someone, I decided to head into Ilex Forest with my Furry!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/36.png

Ilex Forest Shrine.. Seems like someone's living there, sadly it's not a normal type! Haha.

And on my way across the forest, something magical happened!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/37.png

I'm sorry, even though the Togepi family is a Normal type, I have a thing against them.

Came across this guy who does Headbutts.. And got Furry to learn it. Cool stuff.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/38.png

And met some lovely girls along the way..

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/39.png

Hey! That's Lyra! <3

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/40.png

Seems like she's taken an interest in me, but PLEASE NOT THE OLD MAN!

Whitney thought the answer to Kurt's ingredient is surely apricots. ......

She seems strong; but just see for yourself. (Got the order of the screens wrongly, sorry)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/42.png

The same happens with our dear tree blocking the way.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/43.png

I caught a Stantler! But I forgot to capture screens. T_T

(BTW, I skipped through almost all the trainers in the routes to get the Stantler; training time!)

Your Ariados is hax. Really.

Paras is not worth it. It dies to anything. Like anything. From personal experience.

Pineco is found on the trees above the person that teaches you headbutt, I believe.

Pokemon HGSS Monotype Challenge V2!
Update #8

Fun with my Stantler! Named it Dolfy, from Rudolf I guess. Started training it @ the skipped trainers before and after Goldenrod City.
I got a few stuff in the process, from the nonmentioned Rock Smash HM to the Hard Stone from Thursday Arthur!

Well, Team Rocket is retarded for trying to flirt with that pretty girl who's my friend! Eh, wait, aren't all the Kimono Girls the same?

And onto Route 38, Normal Pokemon's paradise. The hunt starts.. for Snubbull! Caught Miltank (first Pokemon I met!), Tauros and Meowth as possible candidates to my team.

I kinda forgot to catch screens of the Burned Tower as I was too fascinated by how Level 14 Miltank thrashes half of Someone's Pokemon.. Sorry.
But I'm gifted I guess since Suicune (I actually typed its name as Suicide in the first try) took notice of me. XD

Updates!!

So I made it to Violet City after Hours of Grinding with "Wee Yin" at level 14 and "Mercury" at Level 12. I headed straight to the Sprout Tower and defeated all of the sages easily using Murkrow's peck attack.

Defeated the Elder and got the HM for Flash. At the end of Sprout Tower "Mercury" was amazingly level 15 ( I didn't expect him to level up that much in Sprout Tower :D )

Feeling Confident I headed straight to the Gym to take on Falkner I let Mercury take on the two regular trainers there and he leveled up to level 16.

So I switched "Wee Yin" to the front of my party and defeated Falkner easily using Rock Slide.

• Returned to Prof.'s Lab. Got accused of stealing Chikorita, but thankfully Lyra came and said that a redheaded boy did it. It must be Naoya.

Does Wee Yin have any special meaning?

• I come across this strange and arrogant redheaded boy who used a Chikorita. I beat him with Gojira, who was at Level 2. Thank goodness for Dragon Dance. I found out that his name was 'Naoya'.

Could've used Ice Punch to beat Chikorita to hell.. But lol beating him with your Level 2 Larvitar sure is impressive stuff.

I'm progressing really fast, and if I don't update now, the updates stacked up will be ultra big zzz. But I don't feel like playing if I have too much updates.. And I'm really desperate to get my Kangaskhan lol.

Also, my Quiet Girafarig is not exactly performing well.. Getting pawned by Chuck proves that (although it's 3 levels lower). I'm starting to think whether its role can be replaced by Stantler.

Hi EJ.

Oh wells I did a few soft resets for Poliwrath to stop using Surf, so that Girafarig could Psybeam it to death. I'm a bit troubled at my -Speed nature.. I seriously have the impulse to remove it from my team. I think I'll train it up a bit first to see how good it is; after all Stantler can't learn all special moves and forgo his higher attack I guess..

Lol, I suppose the Normal type is the hardest to start with due to the moves. I could just go through sprout tower using peck, then just use rock slide in Falkners gym where you wouldn't have any super effective moves at that point, Would you?. I think you've got one of the biggest challenges so far :P

Oh, "Wee Yin" just means "Small One" in Scottish slang. So when Larvitar fully evolves into a Tyranitar i'll probably have to change the nickname to "Big Yin" :)

The point of the challenge is to catch them in game. Not breed them :S Breeding them takes away some of the challenge.

There's dark types available in HG/SS.

I got out of union cave and cleared team rocket out of slowpoke well. Nyx took out bugsy's gym and most of my rival's team with the help of Steel and Yin. Then Steel and I found the farfetched and got through ilex forest. (i taught cut to violet the quilava) Now I'm in Goldenrod city leveling up Steel, Yin and Nyx preparing to defeat Whitney.

Well Miltank's best attacking stat is her physical one sooooo.....zen headbutt is the way to go. She's also very fast which would help you out.

Haha EJ I meant that if I drop Girafarig, I would only have 1 Special attacker in my team (Stantler, and it's only half one) and I would probably have problems when it comes to erm.. Forretress or something? I don't know atm.

And Miltank is a BEAST. She rips through EVERYTHING.

Pokemon HGSS Monotype Challenge V2!
Update #9

Well I lost my whole 90% completed update halfway because I accidentally clicked back. GOSH.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/53..png

Miltank basically decimated everything at Route 38 and 39. She just can't fall.

Lighthouse fun! Rollout means I save PP. :)

Jasmine needs potions!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/56.png

Off to Cianwood! Water routes were fast due to Miltank + Girafarig. :)
And I saw Suicide! I mean Suicune. Challenged by Eusine after, which was effortlessly thrashed.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/57.png

Fighting gym trainers were (almost) a breeze thanks to Girafarig, if only it wasn't that frail..

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/58.png

The battle wasn't that easy - I had to soft reset a few times for Poliwrath to stop using Surf goddamnit so that Girafarig won't get 2HKOed.
Grr... Flew back to Olivine for Jasmine. Actually I just wanted Safari Zone to open. :D

Well, as I continue on my quest, I enter the bug catching contest, catch a Pinsir, change the day, then catch a Venonat.

Unfortunately, Pinsir is kind've weak at the moment, but Venonat is already proving to be invaluable with Poison Powder and Supersonic. :3

I decided to try the gym without grinding any levels, and what do you know, to my surprise...

http://img571.imageshack.us/img571/3391/goldenrod.png

Clefairy took out Pinch quite fast, sadly, but Spore came back and got revenge. XD Miltank was taken out in 2 hits, a simple Self-Destruct by Strobe, then a Brick Break from Xena. XD

Hmm, I thought Pinsir should do fine with its high attack and defense? My Level 16 Miltank could take on Level 20+ trainers and leave without a scratch..

Clefairy took out Pinch quite fast, sadly, but Spore came back and got revenge. XD Miltank was taken out in 2 hits, a simple Self-Destruct by Strobe, then a Brick Break from Xena. XD

I would never have exploding moves in my team lol, I want everyone to gain experience :S

Nah no point in Butterfree if you have Venomoth.
Shedinja ftw lol.
The reason I didn't use Heracross/Pinsir/Scyther class pokemon was because I didn't want the rest of my team to get outclassed by it. (Armaldo was a mistake; it completely outclassed the rest of my team, plus the fact that I EV-trained it. ARGH I WANT A MASQUERAIN!)

Houndoom? Quite frail though. I think Shiftry's not too bad as an all-out attacker, and I personally like Sharpedo.

Rofl, they aren't. XD Ariados can hold her own, as can Venonat. Having some issues with Pineco, but that's mainly due to the fact he hasn't evolved and obtained Gyro Ball yet.

Heracross, Scyther, and Pinsir aren't as strong as you think. EV training and egg moves make them strong. :P

I'm not EV training them, not using heart scales to get moves that they learn at levels before the evolution takes place, and not using hard to get TMs, so Heracross and Pinsir will not outclass the others, not by a long shot. ;P

HUGE Updates!!
Well my Internet wasnt working earlier so I just sat and played Heart Gold for a while.

So after Defeating Falkner I travelled down route 32 and battled every trainer there.
Entered the union cave and battled every trainer I could ( I think I missed some)
Got into Azalea Town and the "Local Tough Guy" Kurt told me he was going to "Sort out that Team Rocket". He then fell down a Well and injured his back :P , I therefore had to battle them myself but "Wee Yin" and "Mercury" handled themselves well and I defeated them all. Kurt then miraculously recovered as soon as I defeated Team Rocket.
Got through the bug gym easy using "Mercury" and obtained the Hive Badge
Returned the Farfetch'd and made it through Azelea Forest.
Went straight to Goldenrod gym and challenged Whitney. (The following would be quite large if I typed it all up so I'll shorten it for you :P )
-Challenged Whitney. Failed (Miltank >:( )
-Challenged Whitney. Failed (Miltank >:( )
-Challenged Whitney. Failed (Miltank >:( )
-Challenged Whitney. Won the forth time :D )
-Started Victory Dance :P

Defeated Sudowoodo.
Struggled in the double battle with the people who had 2 Clefables and 2 Wigglytuff's but came out on top :)
Went to the burnt tower and was told by some boy with a silver cape that the legendary dogs were in the basement but he didn't want to go down because they'd run away.
Defeated Silver easily
Went to the basement to make the legendary dogs run away in order to annoy the Silver Caped guy :)
Defeated Morty using nothing but "Wee Yin" and the Bite attack :P
Taught "Mercury" Sahdow Ball
Went to the place where the Kimono girl is and Lol'd at the Rocket Grunt trying to dance :P
Got the HM for Surf, Taught it to "Haribo"
Saved the game and Posted this update :)
Another update on Sunday, Im going out for dinner on Saturday so I wont be able to play :(

Went past the National Park, and fought Sudowoodo, defeated him, obviously, and then went north towards Ecruteak. I then went to the burnt tower, where my rival almost steamrolled me. XD

So... I spent the better part of my day grinding... a lot. XD I didn't go into 'work' today, because I'm not feeling well, so I got some training in, XD And it almost wasn't enough o_o

http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/8380/ecruteak.png

All of my team are now level 25-26, and I defeated Morty, although Gengar managed to take out both Charlotte and Spore, my secret weapons against him, before Xena managed to take him down.

If Morty was this hard, I may grind my bugs a bit more, to like 30-32, in order to take down the next gym.

Pokemon HGSS Monotype Challenge V2!
Update #10 - Double Digit Anniversary! =.="

So, after I defeated Chuck, and sent the SecretPotion back to Jasmine, I knew what I wanted to do: Get our long lost companion, the Kangaskhan.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/61.png

Am I the only one that has problems with this Magmar/Electabuzz duo? Thunderbolt + Flamethrower on the same target rapes my Pokemon.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/62.png

(That's after painfully waiting for 3 hours!)
My Sandshrew came with a Quick Claw :D

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/63.png

And I got my Kangaskhan! Which I named as Dino. It's pretty powerful!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/64.png

Jasmine will always stay as my favourite girl in HGSS :D

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/65.png

This battle WAS HARD.
- Each Thunderbolt from Magnemite takes off 1/2 of any of my Pokemon's HP, except Farfetch'd (which is a HM Slave and dies in one)
- Retarded Steel typing means I can't do **** about it, and had to resort to Focus Blasts from Furry and Body Slam from Miltank (in hope to paralyze)
- THUNDER WAVE IS THE MOST IRRITATING ATTACK IN THE GAME.
- Iron Tail was the same as Thunderbolt, except it did MORE damage.
- And I had to reset till Focus Blast didn't miss to take out Steelix. :(

Off to Lake of Rage!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/66.png

Yea, Raikou, thanks for appearing. Great Ball missed and he ran away. Haha.

Gyarados wasn't much problem, somehow it decided to spam twister on me instead of Thrash. o.o

Yup I totally agree. :) Plus most Normal types are able to learn the elemental attacks (even though the SpA of them sucks =P) I might do another normal challenge after this, if I have the time hahaha.

I used Pelipper before in Diamond! Mediocre but not too bad =P I had Air Slash, Surf and Ice Beam and it was able to take some physical hits (100 Defense o.o)

I promise, this will be the last update with picture spam. (Hence spoilered) I think I'll take a more simplistic approach from the next update onwards, the bizzare amount of pictures are going out of control (as you can see in the below update; I'm too lazy to edit them lol)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/68.png

More Rocket Grunts for free exp @ Persian statues :D And Kangaskhan tanks Selfdestructs without hassle. Plus I've got Milk Drink to heal! Pwnage.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/69.png

Someone (Rival) comes and talks crap about Lance being powerful. And Lance, don't interfere! I could totally take this battle myself, just like how normally two trainers look at me at the same time right!

Woah wait wait, what's with the underleveled Dragonite? You gamesharked or something?

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/70.png

It's got retarded attacks, mind you. Anyway, Headbutt worked like a charm here, luckily the Electrodes didn't Selfdestruct.Ice Gym trainers weren't a problem mostly, except for a few headbutts wasted on Resting Seels and Dewgongs.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/72.png

This is one of the gym battles that I didn't reset at all!
- Stantler 'took down' Seel, so its job is done.
- Miltank takes 30 damage from Blizzard. Thick Fat rocks!
- Needed a Full Heal to cure Freeze; Body Slams owned thereafter.
- Used a Rollout at the end to buff up power for Dewgong, but I keep missing. All thanks to Mud Bombs from Piloswine!
- Dino punched through Dewgong.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/73.png

Being the justice leader I am, I responded to Elm's request by flying to Goldenrod. Time to wear that cool looking Rocket uniform! I really hope I could wear it for the rest of my journey, but nope.

And I could never get 1st prize in the lottery. What the hell!
(I love the reactions of people in the town, thinking you are Team Rocket.)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/74.png

That Someone had to come and screw things up.

Due to the nature of Rocket Grunts being all the same, and the fact that I don't want to add ANYMORE screenshots to this update, I decided to skip through all of them.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/75.png

Petrel's a good guy! And he Selfdestructed numerous times on my Miltank, doing.. 40 damage?

Met another Kimono Girl on the way. Wait, aren't they all the same?

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/76.png

Meganium was a pain to take down, to be honest. Reflect + Synthesis makes it super tank. Luckily I could stall it through Milk Drink too :D

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/77.png

Got basement key, went back to Radio Tower, thrashed Ariana and whoever the other admin is, and up to the observation deck. Furret wanted to take a look from above, so I let it.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/79.png

What, he uses a Koffing. -.-
And I realised Headbutt does about the same damage as Focus Blast.. so.. urm.. well.

Tip of the day: Talk to the radio tower people to get cool stuff. I didn't know you could get Sunny Day TM + Brightpowder there.

After beating Morty, I decided to train some more, and begun the arduous task of grinding even more levels. XD I got to level 31 with all of them before leaving Ecruteak for Olivine, XD (The level Venonat and Pineco evolve :P)

I also caught a Tauros in order to have a pokemon with surf~. I kind've liked my first few screenshot sets, where I just let the screenies speak for themselves, so I'm going to try that again, XD

Ironically, the one you'd least expect to is the one who took out Steelix: Spore. I sent him in just to see how he'd do, and on top of Supersonic and Psybeam, Steelix went BOOM. o_o

Sorry I haven't said this earlier but I really appreciate the interesting and colorful updates you guys post. Keep it up.

Geez I might have to resort to an emulator since I lost me card.

Yeah. Emulators are Ok as long as you have a decent computer, I tried to play Soul Silver on an Emulator before it was released and it was pretty slow and choppy but that was probably because i was using a laptop :P

As long as you have a decent computer it should be ok :)

Im pretty sure on of the Emulators (DesUme or something) lets you hold one of the button's which doubles the game speed so you can skip through the boring stuff at the start. :)

I'll have another Update tomorrow as I wont have time to play Heart gold today :(

Oh yeah Sleet forgot to comment on your update, I understand how retarded Miltank is, I totally got owned by her during my Bug Challenge. Good thing I have Focus Blast with Furret this time.

As long as you have a Core 2 Duo the emulator should run at ~125-150% speed overworld, ~250-350% speed in battle.

edit: AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS PROBLEMS WITH THOSE KIMONO GIRLS?

Lol, I'd have loved to Focus Blast that Miltank :P

My Emulator was strange, It ran at 120% for about 30 mins but then it got really slow and started to run at about 50%. No Idea why

You're on a laptop? Maybe your CPU thermal throttled lol.

I didn't have that problem when I was on my C2D T7300 (~150%).

THOSE DAMN KIMONO GIRLS.

Okay, I lied, picture heavy, but at least I hope they look nicer.

Pokemon HGSS Monotype Challenge V2!
Update #11 - Clair, Lugia, and the road to Pokemon League

Okay, so Ice Path wasn't a problem, and I met a Kimono Girl again.
Clair herself was quite a problem though:

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/81-clair.png

That KINGDRA! Made me soft reset a couple of times. Hydro Pump OHKOes my Pokemon not named Miltank and Kangaskhan. Gosh.
Sorry to Stantler who died with glory in this battle.
Special mention to Miltank, who tanked 3 Dragon Rages from Gyarados, took 4 Rollouts to defeat Gyarados, and the 5th landed and OHKOed on Clair's other Dragonair. (with 4HP remaining on my MooMoo :D)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/82.png

As naughty as I am, I decided to use an Escape Rope before landing. WHERE'S MY DRAGON PULSE?! Had to take it from her.
She can't even explain what the move is, lol. Here goes:
Power: 80
Accuracy: 100
PP: 10
Type: Dragon
Category: Special

And look, Farfetch'd joins my team!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/83.png

The Kimono girls.. *@&#$(&@#(*$&
Umbreon was the problem, I guess, I just can't take it down. And for the first time, I was actually hoping for my Body Slam to NOT paralyze, so that it wouldn't Synchronize the Paralysis to my Miltank.
Espeon hits hard, but dies to a combination of Body Slam + (switch to Kangaskhan) Fake Out + Crunch.
Flareon wasn't a problem except on the times that it got to use Last Resort, which raped up my Miltank (lead) pretty badly; otherwise Thick Fat tanked Fire Blast like no business.
Jolteon is by far the most dangerous, as Thunderbolt 2HKOes anything on my team. Had to Paralyze it with Body Slam to win.
Vaporeon.. Nothing special.

Salute to Stantler, who once again died in glory in this battle. Reward: Thunder TM :)

Lugia likes to use Rain Dance, which buffed my Thunder to perfect accuracy; hence paralysis was common and caught it without a hassle.

Went through the routes and onto Victory Road training my Furry as I want it to be my lead.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/84.png

Rival was a breeze mostly; wasted some turns on his screening Meganium (no Synthesis, thank you!), and had to resort to Outrage on Magneton (as above) as Furry (with Focus Blast) was low on health and I didn't want to risk. It works anyway :D

Girafarig took down most of the members, which wasn't a surprise considering the good typing. It's still not performing up to my expectations though.

Went to E4.. Thrashed by Will due to low levels! Grind.. grind.. grind..

And now I'm (almost) ready!

UPDATE: ok so i released my other 4 pokemon except for carvanha becuz everytime i release him he comes back. So i kept murkrow and larvitar. I grinded them to level 12 before i entered the Sprout tower. OWNED everyone there with my murkrow who grew to level 15. I then gringed larvitar aswell to level 15 and took on Falkner. He was extremely easy thanks to larvitars rock slide : ) Then i continued to Azalea town and destroyed everyone who wanted to battle. BEAT union cave and went to Slowpoke trail to finish team rocket who were no match for my larvitar and murkrow who grew now to level 17. After that i went to ilex forest before hitting the gym, then i was challenged by my rival who was still no match for me and my 2 pokes. Now grinding them to level 20 to take on Bugsy and ill post my full team later.

Sleet
June 19th, 2010, 03:28 PM
Well I thought id try to get some game time in but im so tired :( . I'll play tomorrow but I wont be able to update due to PokeCommunity being down 7pm till Midnight where I live.

Actually i'll probably be able to squeze in a small update before 7. But i'll have a bigger update sometime on Monday. :)

Good Luck with Whitney Brownzboyz, My Larvitar and Murkrow struggled against her, although yours are a higher level than mines were at that point so you should be OK ;)

Anyway off to sleep, Good night :P

Edit: Before I go to sleep I better ask, Is it OK for me to transfer over a Carvanha egg over. I cant get one otherwise :(

I think max 2 eggs so if you did 2 eggs at the start nope.. But it's up to EJ.
Where do you stay?

Pokemon HGSS Monotype Challenge V2!
Update #12 - Dragons, dragons and more dragons.

Will was fine; required a few rests to get the correct switches though. (Resets: 4)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/85.png

- Exeggutor was quite a problem as it's very tanky.
- Jynx ended up being killed by Crunch from Kangaskhan, not Shadow Ball.
- Shadow Ball on the two birds.
- Zapped Slowbro to death.

Koga was quite funny; (Resets: 1)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/86.png

- Started with Furret which downed Ariados in 3 headbutts.
- Switched to Stantler as Thunder's the only Special move that is not resisted by Forretress on my team.
- He started Toxic Spiking, thus I refused to switch, and started Calm Mining up.
- Thunder swept the rest of Koga's team.
- Venomoth Psychic-ed my Stantler for 20 damage. :D

I didn't reset at all for Bruno! And he has a type advantage some more. (Resets: 0)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/87.png

- Psychic owned the whole team, except Onix, which went down to Focus Blasts from Furret.

Karen was relatively okay. (Resets: 3)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/88.png

- Umbreon went down from a collaboration of most of my Pokemon. (It was the hardest to take down)
- Gengar easily Psychic-ed to death.
- Murkrow.. Well..
- Houndoom is the problem; after a Nasty Plot its special attack went heaven. I ended up doing Rollouts from Murkrow so that I could OHKO Houndoom. :D
- Vileplume was easy.

LANCE. LANCE. LANCE.
(Resets: at least 20)
I started using Revives here.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/89.png

- Gyarados went down from a CM + Thunder. Had to reset for Stantler to not get flinched..
- The mega Level 50 Dragonite always came out next; as you can see from the screenshots above, his outrage was 3x more powerful than mine. I ended up using X Attacks and X Defend (first in my Pokemon history).
- Kangaskhan continued rampaging in confusion, killing the next two Dragonites.
- There is no picture for Charizard, because I spent at least 15 turns Milk Drinking and healing to Body Slam it to death. How the hell can Air Slash deal so much damage (*&#$*(&@
- Aerodactyl was a pain too, I think I stalled it until Rock Slide ran out of PP.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/90.png

My complete Normal Pokemon team, into the Hall of Fame.

Thoughts:
I can fully understand the meaning of "mediocre Pokemon" now (relative to those OU Pokemons).

Worst Performing Award: Furret. I think I didn't use it 80% of the time, at least it probably got into more battles than Kangaskhan.
Best Performing Award: Stantler. Least expected, but it helped me a lot.
Tank Award: Miltank, nuff said.
Rampage Award: Kangaskhan.
"Choice Scarf needed" Award: Girafarig.

Hey, Congratas Emoxy!. Yeah I live in Scotland by the way.
No worries about the Egg I can catch Houndour's and stuff in the Safari Zone I asked as I though I unlocked the Safari Zone after the Elite 4 but it turns out I've just unlocked it just now :)

Myzou
June 20th, 2010, 03:59 AM
Congrats on the Elite 4 :)

Good Luck with the Kanto Gyms, and of Course Red~

I remember doing the E4 on my regular gameplay... Octillery wasn't fast enough to take out Lance, so I ended up resorting to teaching my Meganium Swagger, sticking a Choice Scarf on her, and swaggering the dragonites to max attack, and making them kill themselves :S

Came down to a large amount of luck, only ended up with like, 3 tries though, XD

I grinded all day today... XD Like, ALL day. :S My pokemon are in their 40s now, and I haven't moved past Olivine yet, XD I'm making sure I'm high enough to take out the Elite 4 with my bugs o_o (Mentioning the grinding, as it will be odd seeing them so high level in my screenshots. I didn't take shots of random wild pokemon this time, so it may look odd, rofl.)

I'm AIMING to get Guillotine on Pinsir before I have to fight Claire and Lance, JUST in case I can't beat them on the first go. XD Claire will probably go down with Spore and his Tinted Lens ability, along with Xena + Aerial Ace/Counter, with Charlotte's Night Shade and Pinch's Seismic Toss as backup. :P But Drake is another story altogether ._.

Congratz emoxy

I played til deep into the night so
here´s my latest progress:

- head through union cave, trainers were easy
- beat up the grunts and proton, saved the slowpokes
- finished Bugsy and his friends off. thx to Chad Lee the battle
was easy
- kicked my opponent in his face, Synthesis is annoying
- entered Ilex Forest and got Cut
- taught Cut to Chad Lee and Headbut to Kicker
- Head Back for Azalea Town and caught a Heracross
and named it Julie
- grinded Julie, Kicker and Chad Lee up to lvl. 20...took some time for Julie
- after the Forest I got the Radio and challenged Whitney, she was no
match for me
- Battled all the trainers in the underground and on the way to Ecruteak
- searched for an Machop in Mt. Mortar and named it Chops
- sprinted to Olivine without battling the Trainers to get the Good Rod
- sprinted back to Ecruteak and fished for a Poliwag. I named it Delia
- Now trainig in Mt. Mortar before entering the Gym (I´m sure it will be
hard)

Here´s my current Team

Chad Lee the Combusken
lv. 23

Cut
Peck
Double Kick
Ember

Kicker the Hitmonlee
lv. 22

Headbut
Brick Break
Focus Energy
Fake Out


Julie the Heracross

Fury Attack

Chops the Machop
lv. 19

Seismic Toss
Karate Chop
Foresight
Focus Energy


Delia the Poliwag

Hypnosis
Water Gun
Double Slap
Body Slam


My last team member will probably be another Poliwrath

Hey, Congratas Emoxy!. Yeah I live in Scotland by the way.
No worries about the Egg I can catch Houndour's and stuff in the Safari Zone I asked as I though I unlocked the Safari Zone after the Elite 4 but it turns out I've just unlocked it just now :)

Thanks :D Yeah you should be able to move the safari zone areas around 3 hours after the first challenge.

Congrats on the Elite 4 :)

Thanks alot haha :D
And your levels are a bit too high!! No challenge. =P I didn't grind 'cos I thought it wouldn't be as fun.. But I think it's needed, I can't afford using 15 hyper potions on a single Charizard, that's even less fun lol.

Congratz emoxy

Thank you :)
I'm sure Normal gym was piece of cake to you!
It's been so long since I last used Blaziken, oh man.

My last team member will probably be another Poliwrath

I've never used duplicate pokemon before hehe. Wonder if it'll be fun! I think one of the players here used two Beedrills (Tracker 'n Jacker! Haha)

I would really like to know if the clock trick works for the Safari Zone too! Can't afford to stall months just to capture oh man.

I am seriously in deep consideration of ditching Furret.

Unfortunately I think it may be a necessity to transfer over another Egg or two (Carvanha or Houndour) as, after some research, I found out that I can only get Houndour in Celadon city. The only other dark type i can capture before the elite 4 is Sneasel ( I think) and I don't really fancy taking on the Elite 4 with A Murkrow, Pupitar and
Sneasel :P

EDIT: For the sake of time I'm going to transfer over a Carvanha egg and grind it up to a decent level. If I get conformation that I can't transfer it I will release it again ASAP :)

Hey EJ is it OK if I transfer that Carvanha egg? Im just asking because it's going to be difficult for me to catch any other dark types before the E4

I did it!!! I beat the Elite Four!!!
Summary of my Elite Four Journey:
- 1st Elite: really easy to beat, Dark Pulse and Houndoom and it was done.
- 2nd Elite: Fly with Murkrow and Fire Fang with Houndoom and it is done.
- 3rd Elite: It was a pain. Dark pokemon are weak against fighting. My only Flying move was Fly, which is really bad against a Machamp with No Guard. I finnally beat him, slowly tought.
- 4th Elite: Birck Break, Faint Attack and Ice Shard on Sneasel and it is done.
- Champion: For the first time, I use a berry that the mother give to us. Houndoom kill Gyarados with Dark Pulse and Passho Berry. Sharpedo kill Charizard and Aerodactyl easily with is Choice Scarf. For the Dragonite, I use Sucker Punch with Cacturne and Murkrow, after I finish them with Ice Shard with Sneasel.
- The Elite Four beaten, I will go to the Pokeathlon to get a Dusk Stone and I will do Battle Frontier to get a Razor Claw. With this, All my pokemon will be fully evolved.

Thanks yay :) I'm not very satisfied with my Lance battle though, I think it's because my levels were too low. But well..

Thorton is the Frontier Brain of the Battle Factory, I managed to get 49 wins in a row and get the coloured print from him. :) I really love the Battle Factory, because I get to see different movesets on different Pokemon. Sometimes you do see retarded things like Special Attacking Marowak though. :D

An Update :)

After defeating Morty I headed to Olivine City going through my two favourite routes in the game Route 38 and Route 39, The music that plays as you go through these routes is my favourite through all the pokemon games.

Made my way up the lighthouse and took half an hour trying to remember how to get to the top :P

Got the Medicine from Cianawood and went in the gym to challenge Chuck, The first time I failed as I switched Pokemon just as his Poliwrath began Tightening it's focus. Basically Wee Yin switched out and Mercury switched in only to be promptly focus punched into oblivion. Back to Wee Yin who only had two dark moves and two weak rock moves, needless to say it didnt go well.

Second time round went Ok and I got the badge.

Transfered over a Carvanah egg and a Houndour egg and am currently running round in circles waiting for them to hatch.

Again, if I shouldn't have transfered the eggs tell me and I will release them as soon as i find out, I only transfered them just now to avoid waiting a day for an answer due to PokeCommunity having maintenence :)

For the rest of today I wont be getting any further through the game. I am planning to Grind my Carvanha and Houndour to roughly the same level as Wee Yin and Mercury. Needless to say that might take a while so I will probably have an Update sometime on Monday, Hopefully I will be at or will be near the Elite 4 :)

Edit: Well, My eggs have hatched and if this was a film I'd probably have some epic training montage. Im flying through the levels :) Hopefully by tomorrow Carvanha and Houndour should be the same level as the rest of my team :)

According to Google I still have to beat the E4 before I can get Pokemon like that out of the safari zone, that's why I transfered the eggs in. If i do another one of these challenges I think i might pick Bug or something, they are a lot easier to catch xD

Just noticed on Seribii that the minimum level for houndour, Corphish etc are low 40's so i think it is only possible to get them after the E4 :)

After defeating Jasmine, I sat for a day and a half, grinding all my pokemon up to level 46, to prepare for the upcoming challenge known as the Dragon-Pokemon Trainers Claire and Lance. o_o (And plus, more grinding now = less grinding to take on kanto gyms and red)

Then I set out, to continue on to get my final 2 badges. Unfortunately, I got sidetracked by Lance, and soon, I was ready.

Finally, I am ready for my trip to Blackthorn, where, after a very long time, the time had come:

http://img704.imageshack.us/img704/3038/blackthorn.png

Btw, the fact that Dragons have no resistance to BUG type moves makes me lol. :P X-Scissor Ripped them a new one. Of course, I used Swords Dance 3 times first... XD Even Gyarados couldn't withstand it, even with a resistance. :P

I also had to catch a Krabby for Whirlpool, XD

And I also trained my pokemon all up til level 55, in order to get all the moves they can learn, to prepare for the E4 :P And with that said, I am done with grinding until Mt. Silver and Red, XD (Strobe still doesn't have Zap Cannon, but I think I'm okay with that, I don't want to grind to level 62 right now LOL, same with Venomoth and Bug Buzz. :P)

And to anyone curious how I got so high: I grinded for HOURS upon HOURS. XD Every minute I've been awake has been grinding ._. It's very annoying >_< At least they can all hold their own now, as opposed to when Strobe was still a Pineco, XD I decided to teach Spore Sludge Bomb from the TM I got from the route before the Lake of Rage, and Roost from Falkner. :D

That being said, I grinded a little to fight the Kanto Gyms. I'm still getting owned by Erika right now gosh.

Pokemon HGSS Monotype Challenge V2!
Update #13 - Kanto Gyms are insanely powerful.

So.. After becoming the new champion, of course we take the beautiful S.S.Aqua to Kanto!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/92.png

The trainers were easily taken care of.
(Picture 6: Attempt at fighting Lt. Surge, and epicly failed.)

Thinking that Erika was the easiest gym to take care of in the old GSC games, I went to Celadon City.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/93.png

Blacked out. (and reloaded of course)

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/94.png

Janine's probably the easiest of the 8 gym leaders in Kanto, with levels at least similar to mine. I seriously lose hands down to her Crobat which has Confuse Ray -and- Supersonic.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/95.png

Taught Earthquake to Dolfy, and proceeded to own Lt. Surge.

I think 50% of Kanto trainers are cleared in the process of grinding, lol.

Emoxy, you say that, but they still get pwned by some trainers.

As you know, Bugs are kind've frail when it comes to defenses and health. Even Forretress will get murdered by a Flamethrower, lol. Higher Level is what's needed to fight. They'll probably be level 100 when I fight red. XD

I beat the elite four on my main game at like, level 42. I like a challenge. Even at level 55 with the bugs I have, they'll be a challenge. :P

I used Masquerain in my bug run of Emerald (I did the Ultimate Monotype with bugs), he's not as amazing as you think. To be honest, Pinsir with X-Scissor does more to dragon types than Masq's Ice Beam.

Myzou
June 21st, 2010, 01:16 AM
^ Lol. You didn't know about Venomoth's ability? XD There's a reason she's used more in competitive than Butterfree. I love butterfree, but for attacking, Venomoth is much better.

I had a competitive Butterfree once, I used it back when I did double battles. Amazingly fun using Tailwind. :P

Tinted Lenses does: The power of “not very effective” moves is doubled.

AKA, it makes Not very effective hit for neutral damage, except if they're double resistant. But if that's the case, it still does double the damage it normally wouldn't. :P

And with Sludge Bomb, Psychic, and Bug Buzz, Venomoth can cover a ton of things. XD

If your using No$Gba, you can go to Options, then Emulation setup and check the Emulation speed, If its at anything other than Realtime Auto, change it to that and it should run normal speed. If it already at that try changing it to different ones and see if it slows it down. Hope this helps :)

I think you just have to catch a geodude and sandslash until Baoba lets you use items to get the 40's pokemon, regardless of E4 completion or not. Someone correct me if I'm wrong :)

It´s Possible, i spend about an Hour in the Game Hall and earned 4140 coins. All you need are basic math skills and a bit luck.


My huge Update:

- defeated Opponent in burned Tower
- Then battled Morty. His Gengar pushed me close to the egde. Delia saved
me from losing and crushed his 2 Haunter with surf, 30 HP left (Delia
was lv 28 at that point and still a poliwhirl) and tons of luck
- evolved Chops and traded it afterwards to get machamp
- went up the lighthouse, Bird keepers are annoying
- surfed to cianwood and fought all swimmers
- entered the gym, Julie rocked that House and Chuck was no match
- got HM02, surfed back to Olivine, went up the lighthouse and recognized
that i forgot the medicine for Amphy...headed back to Cianwood via Surf
cause none of my Pokes is Capable of flying
- after many battles against Tentacools I was finally able to challenge
Jasmine. She wasn´t really a match for me but her Steelix critted Chad
Lee out of Conciousness.
- Trained Chad Lee til evolution
- Head for Mahogany and the Red Gyarados, afterwards cleaned up in the
Rocket hideout.
- Pryce´s Gym was really a hard fight...No he was finished of in less than
a minute
- Head for Goldenrod and played about an hour Voltorb Flip (Effort : 4140
Coins)

It´s Possible, i spend about an Hour in the Game Hall and earned 4140 coins. All you need are basic math skills and a bit luck.

I tried, managed to get Ekans in about 20 minutes on my Heart Gold game last time, but zzz.. It's insane.. It's not really hard, but there's some luck involved.

Would it be cheating if I used a code to get me the GB Player?

It's not really giving me an unfair advantage I just want to get a Nostalgia kick when im playing through the Rocket Base in Mahogany town :P

I don't think EJ will mind this haha :D

Sorry Found Letter, I dont think you can use legendary's for this challenge.

You can maybe replace Lugia with an Natu/Xatu im pretty sure a Flying/Psychc would help your team

Im sure there's other good flying types you could replace Ho-Oh with also :)

.EJ
June 21st, 2010, 11:17 AM
Both of you are correct.

Ho-Oh and Lugia aren't goig to be in your team..if you still want to participate.

Updates! (I could have posted this hours ago but when i tried to post I got the Server is busy message :( )

After hours and hours and hours ( This is no exaggeration it took ages :P ) of grinding my team were all around mid 30's :)

So I gave the secret potion to Jasmine and after she gave it to the Ampharos it immediatley stopped throwing up all over me :D

Beat Jasmine easily, Houndoom + Ember and Fire Fang = Easy Peasy :)

Went to the Lake of Rage and defeated the Red Gyrados. When I went back to land there was some guy wearing a red cape and was accompanied with a Dragonite who filled the entire Lake of Rage with awesomeness :P

I asked the Caped-Man (Who i later found out was named Lance) if I could touch his cape, he agreed but only if i would help him take out a team rocket base.

I healed my pokemon then went into the rocket base in time to see lance command his Dragonite to hyper beam a Human!, Yes, Lance's awesomeness knows no bounds :D

Anyway the Rocket Base was pretty easy.

Went to the Mahogany gym and yet again Houndoom + Ember and Fire Fang = easy peasy :P

That's it for now, will hopefully have another another update later on Tonight when I should be closing in on the Elite 4 :)

Heh, I haven't posted anything at all...lemme fix that.

Challenged the Violet leader after hardcore grinding all pokes to lvl 12, then after owning him, continued to the next town and took down team rocket, and soon again, began grinding all pokes to lvl 18. barely beating bugsy because of that U-Turn attack, did alot of damage to my pokes D:. Lost once to him. Continued through the forest, fighting everything in my way gaining what little exp i could. and arrived at Goldenrod.

Sneasel is only available after the Elite 4 as are most dark types in this game for some reason :/

You can find it in Route 28 and Mt.Silver which are only unlocked after all 16 badges :(

June 21st, 2010, 04:05 PM
NOOOOO!!!!!! i guess thats 2 eggs i need to send in but to make it fair ill only import each egg after each gym. So now im at azalea still havent played my ds in awhile actually goin to use the carvanha i have in my p.c and after i finish azalea ill send in a houndour egg and then after goldenrod ill use a sneasel egg. Thats what i will do is this cheating in any way? i want to make sure.

Sleet
June 21st, 2010, 04:31 PM
Im not sure, I've transfered Dark pokemon eggs in due to the fact they are that hard to find before defeating the Elite 4 so i think it should be ok. It would be a different story if you were using bug or something where you could capture loads before the elite 4 :)

At the end of the day though, It's all up to EJ so I really cant confirm if it's cheating or not :(

Pokemon HGSS Monotype Challenge V2!
Update #14 - Smooth Sailing

More updates @ Kanto. :)
Challenged Sabrina. Overall easy battle, Crunch/Shadow Ball made short work of her.

Met Morty at Ecruteak City, when sidetracking. (I haven't gotten the Rainbow Wing though).

I'm a pest! :D

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/99.png

Misty was relatively easy too. Stealth Rock is fun :D And Energy Ball made short work of her.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/100.png

I love Sinnoh leaders :D
Erika was finally defeated! My main problem was with Leaf Storm (Victreebell) which threatened to OHKO my Pokemon. Since the level increase it became a 2HKO and my Miltank managed to stall it to decrease its special attack by 6 stages lol =P
Bellossom was a problem too due to its high powered Sunnybeam, but Rollout devastated it. XD

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/101.png

Brock was a joke. Seriously.. He has trainers having Rhydon and Golem, and he's using a Rhyhorn and a Graveler.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/102.png

Since Mt. Moon is nearby, I decided to pay my friend a visit. I'm glad my team covers a huge array of types. I think the only important types I don't have are Fire and Flying attacks.

He is extremely hard... I had a friend lend me their competitive UBERs team, and he whooped them O_o (On my main one, I mean :P)

I ended up winning by using another friends Registeel, using Curse over and over and over, then Amnesia over and over and over. (Keeping him healed with full restores), then just going to town with Iron Head/Ice Punch.

I'm considering doing another round of the Ultimate Monotype Challenge with Normal Types after I'm done here... XD But Generation 4 has a very bad choice of normal types. I like Lopunny and Purugly, but they're pretty much the only pure normal types. XD

I may redo this with normal too, follow in emoxy's steps. :P

Haha, I guess competitive teams sometimes just wouldn't work here. I don't think people even bother to set up 3 layers of spikes against the E4.

I haven't really defeated Ash a single time yet (I didn't do it in my Bug challenge, it wasn't needed that time), but I know I'm gonna need real high levels. Just killed Blaine, and am gonna grind @ old E4 before killing Blue and 'upgrading' them =P

I might do a Flying type after this, but I think I'll revisit Platinum a bit probably.
