I thought that he's harder now. Except Snorlax/Espeon in GSC everything else was a joke.

You're probably right. I probably found it hard in Crystal cause' I must have been about 7 years old or something and at that time I didn't believe in capturing other Pokemon I pretty much Solo-runned it with a Feraligatr or Typhlosion xD

BIIIIIG Update. XD Elite 4 pics are in spoiler tags. :)

Anyway, after being done in New Bark Town, I was told some people were looking for me...

http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/5050/kimonohooh.png

After shamelessly killing the Legendary Pokemon Ho-Oh (Bug Types Don't Like Fire, Silly Kimono Girls!), it was off to journey to the Pokemon League... As I made my way to Victory Road, I enjoyed the scenery. Then, upon arriving at the exit to Victory Road, I was greeted to something I've grown to expect.

http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/5466/victoryroad.png

Anyway, after that was done too, it was time to challenge the league. I didn't know how my bugs would do, but only time would tell...


First Up Was Will, the Master of the Psychic Types... the Perfect Prey for my Bugs.

http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/1695/will.png

Needless to say, he fell quite easy thanks to Shadow Sneak, X-Scissor, Bug Bite, etc.

Next up was Koga, master of the poison type.

http://img413.imageshack.us/img413/8774/koga.png

Other than *cough* copying my team *cough*, the battle was quite smooth, thanks to Strobe's immunity to poison, as well as Charlotte and Spore's Psychic attacks.

Next up was Bruno, the fighting master...

http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/6690/brunob.png

Who, just like the previous two, fell quite easily thanks to Aerial Ace and Psychic.

The final Elite 4 member was next, Karen, master of the Dark...

http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/7003/karenb.png

Unfortunately for her, Dark Types are weak to Bug AND Fighting Type moves, which are readily available on my team. XD

Finally, I was down to my last fight... Lance, the Dragon Master, my worst enemy...

http://img715.imageshack.us/img715/4232/lancev.png

Gyarados gave me the most issues. Nothing I had could really hurt him, I actually ended up resorting to stalling with Strobe, and fighting back with Payback. Charizard was Guillotined, because to be honest, nothing I had could fight against him. Aerodactyl fell fast to Strobe's Gyro Ball, due to his lack of speed and Aerodactyl's actual speed.

Finally, his Dragonites. I had contemplated using Guillotine, but in the end, I decided that I might as well stick to trying to take them on regularly, as I was capable of taking out Clair's dragons. Surprisingly, they were all taken out in one hit by Spore's Signal Beam. (I used it over Sludge Bomb for the confuse chance, as I didn't think I'd be capable of taking them out in one shot. Tinted Lenses = <3 <3 <3)


And just to clarify: I healed after each battle with my medicines, xD If the fact their health is back confuses anyone. And if someone was hurt, I'd often swap them out when the next pokemon was sent in. That's why most the pokemon have full health in the screenies of each of the Elite 4's pokemon. Some don't such as Strobe in the Lance shot, as I didn't have time to heal up after Guillotining Charizard. I went through about 15 Full Restores and about 5 Revives in Total.

I LOL at your matchup vs Koga.

And I think you meant Lance (Drake -> 4th Hoenn E4 member).

I used Gyro Ball to faint Aerodactyl too! :D And I think my Butterfree went through Lance's other 5 Pokes with Sleep Powder + Shadow Ball :D

Oh and I'm having a lot of fun with the old E4 now :D Me First is really a fun move to use. It goes like this:

Lance sent out Dragonite!
Go, Dolfy (Stantler)!
Dolfy uses Me First!
Dolfy uses Outrage!
It's super effective!
Dragonite fainted!
Lance sent out Dragonite!
Dolfy uses Outrage!
It's super effective!
Dragonite fainted!
Lance sent out Dragonite!

Ariados was accidental... then it just became to taunt him. (And to get good screenies) XD Forretress vs Forretress was lol. I sent him out, used Payback, next thing I know, "Forretress used Explosion!" XD

And I knew it was Lance, XD I'm getting tired :P I even named the image correctly, just typed it wrong up there, XD

And just FYI, my Playtime is so high cause sometimes I leave the emulator open and forget about it, lol. It didn't take me 20 extra hours to grind 20 levels, lol.

emoxy
June 22nd, 2010, 03:03 AM
Haha, I am already at 100 hours of playtime, considering that someone managed to play through Pokemon Red at 1:59 o.o

I am doing extreme sidetracking right now, just caught Articuno and Suicune, lol.

Explosion probably did 20-30 damage to you? o.o

But you can only get the upgraded E4 by beating Red? O_o

Or am I misunderstanding what you're saying.

Nope, it upgrades after you get the Earth Badge.

What came as a surprise was that you could catch Articuno before the Earth Badge.

EDIT: YES YES YES I BEAT KAREN!!!!!!
But I think I stand 0% chance against Lance. I'm depending on you, ROLLOUT. :D
(The Salamence likes to use Flamethrower. Seriously!?!!?!??!)

EDIT AGAIN: LOL I WIN HAHAHAHA ROLLOUT!
(Lance was significantly easier than Karen.)

Pokemon HGSS Monotype Challenge V2!
Update #15 - You know what? Not so smooth.

Sorry for the crazy update speed, I really have nothing to do these days. My friends are all back home and I'm the only one in my hostel.

So.. after thrashing my rival at Mt. Moon, he screamed about going to Dragon's Den to train. We should head there too, but the official stuff shall be done first.
Continuing my adventure..

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/104.png

I think Blue's kinda cool, but he needs us to fight the red-hot Blaine first.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/105.png

By the time I fought Blaine, my Aqua Tail had no PP -.- That's why I resorted to MooMoo's trusty Rollout.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/106.png

YAY! :D But wait! It's time for Dragon's Den.
Look who's there!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/107.png

This battle was crazily hard; took me >15 resets to get it right.
Meganium was really tanky; my turn 1 always started with Reflect (LightClay-ed) and he always used Light Screen.
That made Gyarados' Ice Fang deal 20% to my rival's Meganium =P Quite crazy.
Stealth Rock saved the day though; 50% damage to Charizard is pure awesomeness.
- Gengar's Sludge Bomb helped me deal a lot of damage too.
- Kangaskhan Outraged Kingdra to death and drained one of the Dragonites a lot.
- Obviously, Draco Meteor OHKOes anyone.
- I HATE Thunder Wave, which both Gyarados and Dragonair possess.
- This match ended up with Girafarig Psychic-ing Clair's Dragonite to death.

More sidetracking.. Yes I have this much time to catch those beasts.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/108.png

And it's time for Ho-oh!

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/109.png

Easily captured :D Miltank with Thick Fat takes no sweat tanking his Sacred Fire.
Was seriously bored, so decided to just hit at Blue. =P

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/8/209083/Normal_1/110.png

The last hit by Stantler was actually a Me First - Air Slash :D

"Oh, ****, E4 is upgraded. ZZZ"

(Did not take any pictures because I was seriously fed up with the amount of resets I had to do.)
Furthermore I went in with.. 8 revives and 18 Lemonades, 2 Max Potions and 1 Full Restore. :D

Will - Generally easy.
Bronzong - Earthquake.
Gardevoir - Crunch.
Jynx - Crunch.
Grumpig - Crunch.
Slowbro, Xatu - Thunder.

(No sweat.)

Koga - PP Wasting.
Skuntank - Earthquake.
The rest - 8 Psychics, I think (that leads to the next nightmare).

(I need PP Ups!)

Bruno - OMYGOSH.
It was certainly a fun battle.

Hitmontop goes like this:
- Stantler used Reflect!
- Hitmontop used Close Combat!
(~65% damage)
- Stantler used Confuse Ray!
- Hitmontop hit itself due to confusion! (~10% damage)
- Stantler used Me First! Stantler used Close Combat (150% power)!
- Hitmontop fainted!

Stantler used Me First! Stantler used Close Combat (150% power)!
Hitmonlee fainted!

Hitmonchan thrashed my Stantler, and went down form a LOT of lucky Paralysis from Miltank. (the Full Restores were used here)
Hariyama was wasted by Psychic, but Miltank died in the process.
Only 1 Psychic left; sadly it didn't decimate Machamp, leaving him at 5% HP. (Girafarig was pawned thereafter)
Sent out my HM Slaves while reviving, and Kangaskhan finally got him down (somehow Bruno didn't use a Full Restore despite him not having used up all. Maybe he was thinking that he could kill me?)

Lucario left; and I knew I might be losing it because I only had Kangaskhan left.
Stalled him using my remaining Lemonades (Close Combat = ~65%, Lemonade = ~35%) until his defenses dropped, and BOOM! Return wasted him.

WIN!

KAREN - SHE IS A ***** OMG

I thought my nightmare was over, then THAT GODDAMN WEAVILE HAD LOW KICK.

- Reflect, sent Miltank out (Low Kick with Reflect = ~20% to Miltank)
- Stealth Rock, ROLLOUT :D
- 3HKO Weavile, OHKO Absol and Houndoom (Rollout ends) (until here took me at least 15 resets)
- Honchkrow was surprisingly easy to take on, had my Kangaskhan 2HKO with Return, while being Thunder Waved and Drill Pecked.
- Umbreon is my NEMESIS.

My final tactic against Umbreon was to stall out its Payback (Cursed Payback is CRAZY.) and Sucker Punch, then had Girafarig Energy Ball it to death. (Physical attacks ~5% damage)

To my huge surprise, Lance wasn't too hard. (Only 2 resets!!!!!)
The Salamence (as mentioned above) likes to use Flamethrower;
- Reflect, sent out Miltank.
- Stealth Rock, ROLLOUT :D
- 3HKO Salamence, OHKO Dragonite, Gyarados.
- Kangaskhan Outraged Altaria to heaven, and to my surprise, heavily injured Garchomp (managed to hit it twice, its Outraged didn't OHKO me).
- Girafarig took care of Garchomp with an Energy Ball.
- Charizard came out, and Stealth Rock 50% damage XD
- Miltank proceeded to Rollout.

HALL OF FAME! :D

Emoxy, are your HM slaves normal types?

I think it's allowed lol.
Anyway, it's a Farfetch'd an a Gyarados, and I almost always sent out Farfetch'd as Intimidate would spoil the fun.
(I redefeated the E4 many times to grind, and without the HM Slaves XD)

LEFT WITH ASH! More grinding (again).
Let me go wash my face.

Used a Farfetch'd, meh..

To be honest, I enjoyed my Bug team more than this hehe, although the variety of options I could get in Normal types were really cool.

Before my team summary, here's how I defeated Ash:

MooMoo VS Lapras

Too long didn't write.
Basically, stall using Milk Drink while Lapras Brines, and Body Slam it to death. RED used another Full Restore here.

I'm sure I missed some Full Restores.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/c/c0/Spr_4h_241.png
MooMoo - LV70 Miltank
Careful/Thick Fat
Hard Stone
- Rollout
- Stealth Rock
- Body Slam
- Milk Drink
Star of the team. Stealth Rock proved incredibly useful (especially against Lance), Rollout is a gay move, super tank, STAB Body Slam is powerful, can heal itself (and allies!). Nuff said.

http://www.gtsplus.net/files/images/sprites/hgss2fn/115.png
Dino - LV70 Kangaskhan
Docile/Scrappy
Leftovers
- Return
- Aqua Tail
- Crunch
- Outrage
Physical sweeper. Fast, though attack is only above average. Aqua Tail was useful in coverage. STAB Return is crazy. Outrage helps a lot against Garchomp (where Rollout didn't work =P) and against the first Lance.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/e9/Spr_4h_203_m.png
Geeraff - LV70 Girafarig
Quiet/Inner Focus
Choice Scarf
- Shadow Ball
- Psychic
- Energy Ball
- Thunder
Was rather useless at first, but after teaching it Thunder/Energy Ball, and slapped a Choice Scarf on it (it had -Speed nature), became a powerful special sweeper. VERY useful against Will/Koga/Bruno with Psychic/Shadow Ball.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/65/Spr_4h_234.png
Dolfy - LV70 Stantler
Serious/Intimidate
Light Clay
- Me First
- Confuse Ray
- Reflect
- Earthquake
Support freak. Reflect is pretty damn powerful with Light Clay, without it the challenge is impossible. Earthquake deals with Koga, and Me First is extremely fun. (Watch it Close Combat Bruno's Hitmons to death)

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/06/Spr_4h_162.png
Furry - LV43 Furret
Hasty/Run Away
Silk Scarf
- Headbutt
- Sucker Punch
- Focus Blast
- Assist
My very first Pokemon, thought not very powerful, the high speed is appreciated. Headbutt flinches were useful.
Challenge complete! Game time: 104 hours o.o

I leveled up my pokemon to level 30 each. Battled all the trainers on the way to Olivine, beat the lighthouse and got the errand from Jasmine. I battled all the trainers by whirl islands and found out that it was the best place to train because tentacools and tentacruels don't do damage to my pokemon unless they use water attacks:) Got the secret potion and defeated Chuck very fast with Nyx. Now I'm battling trainers around the safari zone to level up my pokemon. I'm so dreading the fight against Jasmine. Steel against steel should equal a verrrrry looong battle:(

Update on my Dark challenge:
- I get my tenth badge from Erika. Pretty easy.
- Train my team a little bit.
- I'm still wondering when the pokeathlon will let me buy a Dusk Stone. I really want to evolve Murkrow. I want him to learn Night Slash.
- I'm going to do battle frontier to get a Scope Lens. Scope Lens +Night Slash+Super Luck = OHKO a lot of thing
- I will probably try to get a Brightpowder since Tyranitar and Sand Stream and Cacturne Sand Veil. NO one will touch my Cacturne.

Wow, I beat jasmine very easily actually. I thought it was going to take forever but I found out that steelix is weak against fighting so Yin took her out and Steel took out the magnemites:) Then when I was training my pokemon I ran into raikou. It was shiny!!!! I checked to make sure my fiancee didn't leave the all shiny cheat on nthe chip and it was off!!!! My first wild shiny in soulsilver!!!!! Yays!!!!! :) :) :) I'm going to catch it with the masterball when I defeat all the gyms:)

No my scizor is not from the event. The event scizor is in japanese and level 50. Yin was hatched from an egg. Nyx was hatched from an egg that I bred myself trying to get a shiny took over 3000 eggs. Steel was hatched from an egg my fiancee bred via masuda method and it took 655 eggs. The shiny Raikou I found in the wild, he's one of the roaming pokemon that includes Entei. I was resetting my game several times at the beginning to get a shiny cyndaquil so I guess maybe all the resets made the raikou shiny. The shiny Raikou is the third wild shiny that I've found this month. The other two were in my heartgold and one is a spinarak and the other is a caterpie.

Ok well here is my first update:



Started a new HG save file.
Named myself Beo (of course)
Recieved Totodile to use as an HM slave since it can learn 4 HMs alone.
Caught a Hoot-Hoot and traded to my other game for a Pichu egg.

And that's all I got so far!

amberfunk
June 24th, 2010, 12:45 AM
Updates: I caught the red gyrados at lake of rage and cleared out team rocket from their hideout. Defeated the Pryce and the trainers pretty easily. I then cleared out team rocket from the radio tower and the underground. Went through the ice path and defeated Clair with a little difficulty. Went through Dragon's den to get the badge then after left to reteive the masterball from Professor Elm. Then I was off to chase down my shiny Raikou and catch it with my brand new masterball.....Then I ran into Entei, he was shiny as well....Hmmm, apparently the cheat code for shiny pokemon was on at the time that Entei, Raikou and Suicune were released. Needless to say I gave up trying to catch Raikou. Next up defeating the kimono girls and facing Lugia. Perhaps I will soft reset to get a shiny Lugia. Probably not though because I am eager to finish my steel challenge so that I can start a new challenge:) I will post my team shortly before I sleep.

EJ, can you post clarifications on the egg rules in the first post? I could've swore there used to be something, but there doesn't seem to be.

I used spinarak only for the first 2 gyms instead of transferring an anorith, etc, because there are bugs available before then. But I keep seeing people transfer electric/normal/etc eggs over, when they're available before the first gym. (Mareep is available before Falkner, but after you get to Violet City, wheras Furret, Hoot-Hoot, Rattata, Pidgey, etc are available).

Allowing types that are available before the 3rd gym to be traded over... just takes away the challenge of the challenge.

Dark, Ice, Dragon, and a few others I can understand... but normal, bug, poison, flying, etc I don't o_o

I wasn't pointing anyone out, I'm merely asking for clarification~

I was fine with that, as Mareep is the only electric type for a long time, but still, one is enough to get you through the game til more, but I can see EJ being ok with it, which is why I didn't comment.

But the person transferring a normal type over... that just baffles me.

I don't think you can trade normal types over since there're so many normal types available early in the game. (Miltank's a beast!)

As Mareep's the only Electric around until after the 4th gym (correct me if I'm wrong), and EJ normally allows two eggs, I guess it's reasonable that he allows it.

Update!!! E4 is always the best part to update. :)

There are people who choose not to read the rules, or people who overlooked some aspects of the rules. In any case, I think the most important thing is to have fun. As much as I wanted to play a Dark challenge and trade >2 eggs over just because of the scarcity of Dark types in HGSS, I didn't because I believe that following EJ's rules would make my challenge more of a challenge, as Myzou has stated, and everyone would be happy to see fair play everywhere. If there are people who accidentally broke them, I think they intend to play through the challenge and have fun in the first place, so as long as we all have fun, nothing's wrong.

Just my two cents.

Anyway, I'm speedrunning through the Ultimate Solo Challenge with my Mawile - I'm already past the 7th gym in Fire Red and I started a few hours ago =P

Myzou
June 24th, 2010, 09:00 AM
^ Egg trading isn't addressed in the rules, only reason I posted XD I'm askin EJ to write out a set rule for egg trading. :P

We know 2 eggs are allowed, but if it's for all types, I wish I had known that. :S

emoxy
June 24th, 2010, 09:02 AM
If you can get 2 or more Pokemon of that type in the beginning, then it probably doesn't justify getting the egg.

In our case of bug, Spinarak/Caterpie/Weedle/Ledyba.

Well I've said before that there's a reason this challenge is called Version 2.0. This wasn't MY original challenge. Perfectmonster was the original but he gave up so I took up the post with his permission and moderator approval. I began the 2nd version of the challenge. The rules are almost a carbon copy of the originals. I basically changed nothing soooooo the egg rule is something I had to come up with.

Let me clarify it now and I'll update the rules in a bit with it.

Pokemon types that are rare/scarce warrant egg trading. This means the dragon, ice, dark, fighting, steel, ghost and electric types are the only ones to get eggs.

Why electric? I'm only allowing people to bring in a Pichu egg because mareep, chinchou, magnemite, etc are around. Pichu serves as their "starter"

ice: I can vouch for this type and say that it's tough when half your team is acquired in th ice cave.

Dark: most are in the safari zone and that ruins the purpose of monotyping this type.

Dragon: need I say more? Of course this type is rare...

Steel: it's rare...lol

Fighting: from now on I'm only allowing a tyrogue egg to start you off.

Ghost: I haven't decided but prolly only a misdreavus egg or something. You guys decide here.

I'm setting the limit to 3. At most, you can have 3 unless I've said that type only gets one i.e. Fighting, electric,

I'm going for Koga right now, but he should be a breeze considering that steel types can't be poisoned:) :) And Nyx with sharp beak and Steel with fire fang with charcoal will take out the whole team. Muk might be a problem though:( I always wind up having trouble with muk.

Name: Normel
Type Use: Normal
Version: Heartgold

As so as I left home I caught a Sentret and with it caught a Hoothoot. (But had some problem as he kept putting Sentret to sleep.)

Trained them on my way to Violet City by batteling a few Yongster and Bugcatcher trainers.

I reached Violet City, but wanted to do some more trainning so I went straight to the Sprout Tower where I fought the sages and their....several Bellsprouts.....and like two Hoothoots.

But after fighting the elder, I was thrilled as my Sentret then evolved into Furret.

I went stright to the Violet gym and fought to more trainer to get to the Gym Leader Falkner. His Pidgey was easy for my Furret to beat, but my luck changed as his Pidgeotto took him out fast.

Yet I was able to beat him with Hoothoot, by putting it to sleep with Hypnosis and Tackle.

I then made my way to the Poke Mart as I had gotten a call from Prof Elm to pick up a package. It turned out to be an egg in which I was given to hatch.

I traveled trough Route 32 and Union Cave and doing so battled more trainers like more Youngters and Supernerds.

When I got out of the cave I was shocked to see Team Rocket going into the Slowpoke Well.

Edit: Just looked at the Ultimate solo challenge and i can see you're doing it. I was planning on doing it after this, Is it quite fun?

Haha I'm doing it out of pure boredom; it should be rather challenging, thrashing Fire Red with my Mawile now, but I think HGSS versions with Mawile is almost impossible - I guess Red's Pikachu would Outspeed me and Thunderbolt me to death with that goddamn Light Ball.

Claires Kingdra is so annoying >: (

Not when they don't resist Bugs :D Right Myzou?

Ghost: I haven't decided but prolly only a misdreavus egg or something. You guys decide here.

I see that you used a lot of Hyper Potions for Lance =P That's perfectly normal though hahaha I remember myself stalling him out in my Bug Challenge too.

I have no Idea how I did it in 17 hours :P

It's maybe messed up because when I took the picture with my webcam everything was back to front and I had to put it on Photoshop and reverse the picture. I might not have reversed the time properly, It's maybe meant to read 32 hours 17 minutes. That seems more likely :P

Hey Ho, Kanto i´m coming

I stopped played before Lance and here´s how the fight went:

Lance sent out Gyarados. Go Bobby. Bobby used thunderpunch, Gyarados Trash, but missed. Again Thunderpunch and Gyarados fainted.

Lance sent out Charizard, i switched to Chops. Charizard used Air Slash(~60%), Chops used Rock Tomb for about ~99%. Lance used Fullrestore and Chops again Rock Tomb... Charizard was still alive so i used a hi potion...for next ten rounds it was Air Slash, HiPotion, Air Slash til Charizard misses. then Chops used Strength and Charizard fainted.

Lance sent out Aerodactyl. I switched to Bobby and used Sky Uppercut. Aerodactyl was faster and OHKOed Bobby with aerial ace(Crit). I sent in Delia and he used Aerial ace, Delia survived the hit (~55% Hp left) and used Blizzard, OHKO.
Lance sent out his first Dragonite, I kept Delia. Delia used Blizzard and to my Surprise Delia attacked first and landet a OHKO.

Lance sent out his next Dragonite (lv 50), I kept Delia. This Dragonite was faster and Outrage let Delia faint. Chops had no PP left for Rock Tomb, so i used Julie and then a Max Revive on Delia. Julie took two Outrages and fainted. I switched to Delia, she took an Outrage (~65% Damage) and counters with Blizzard. Dragonite was history.

Lance sent out his last Dragonite, kept Delia and used a HiPotion while Dragonite used ThunderWave. Delia took an Outrage and finishes Dragonite with a Blizzard off.

Delia is a real Beast it takes damages and then often kills her foes or is simply faster than the other Pokemon, I highly recommend Poliwrath to everyone who is doing a Water or Fighting Challenge.

My Team:

Delia the Poliwrath

Bobby the Hitmonchan

GAME Pokémon HeartGold
TYPE Normal

→ STARTED THE GAME
Chose a female sprite and named myself Rzepka after Charles J. Rzepka, whose book Detective Fiction was central to my dissertation. Picked Totodile as my Starter as he's the best with HMs, and set off towards Mister Pokémon's house. I avoided all battles except for the Rival battle. I named my Rival Holmes, after Sherlock Holmes. I then had to close down my DS for the night because Sentrets only appear during the day-time, boo. (I did try catching one on my PokéWalker with a now-released Hoothoot, but I kept running into Pidgeys and Nidorans.)

→ CAUGHT THE FIRST NORMAL
I booted up this morning and immediately caught a Sentret after Ethan's catching tutorial. I named her Mossa, after Kell Mossa the Pariah from DC Comics. Did some grinding on Route 29, then set off for Violet City via Cherrygrove.

→ BELLSPROUT TOWER
Climbed to the top of Bellsprout Tower once I reached Violet City, defeated the Master and got TM70: Flash. Went down towards the Ruins of Alph to do some training before facing the gym. Oh Volkner, how I despise your Pidgeotto's strength.

Quick update.
• Entered Violet City.
• Met this weird guy who shouts 'Shard de Berry' and trades shards for berries.
• Generated a Stunky egg and a Carvanha egg. Rolled a bit low (around 13) in all of the Stunky's IVs, and rolled pretty good (around 23) for the Carvanha's IVs (except for Sp.Def., which was 4).
• Still exploring Violet city.

Just murdered Lt. Surge, XD Amazing how strong Gyro Ball from a Forretress is vs an Electrode, while said Forretress is paralyzed. One shot all his pokemon, even with it being Not Very Effective, lol. (EDIT: Except his last Electrode... had to use a Bug Bite to get him down to Half Health, as I missed the first shot of pokemon + Lt. Surge :P)

And Faustus, EJ clarified last page that eligible types (dark being one of them) can get 3 eggs, not 2. :) And if I can beat the elite 4 with an Ariados, Forretress, and Venomoth as my main 3, you can do it with 3. XD

I'll be posting a regular update either within the next few hours, or tomorrow. XD I'm still taking pics as I go. :P

EDIT: It depresses me how fast the Kanto Gyms are (together). -.-;

Sabrina is down. She killed Charlotte though :( Espeon moved before her, and BOOM Psychic kill. >_< On Erika now :3

EDIT2: Erika went down without a struggle, XD Amazing what Poison Jab, Megahorn, and X-Scissor can do. Considering replacing Roost with Giga Drain on Venomoth, or grinding until Strobe learns Zap Cannon to make Misty a bit easier...

Safari Zone. Or ask EJ for more eggs.

Delia is a real Beast it takes damages and then often kills her foes or is simply faster than the other Pokemon, I highly recommend Poliwrath to everyone who is doing a Water or Fighting Challenge.

I've been looking at Poliwrath for a while now and I think he's quite good. Can consider..

I'm using a ROM, so no trading, but I can get some PokeSav Eggs, roll some 31-sided dice for the IVs and hatch them. Is this alright?

What I did when I wanted to do the Dark challenge (but cancelled) was to catch wild Pokemon and turn them into eggs. =P If you change their level and level them up they will have the correct stats anyway.

Rolled a bit low (around 13) in all of the Stunky's IVs, and rolled pretty good (around 23) for the Carvanha's IVs (except for Sp.Def., which was 4)

Carvanha can't take any hits anyway =P

• Got lost, ended up in some Ruins instead of Sprout Tower. At least I know that Ekans are native to Johto. Ekans and Arbok are awesome.
• After a bit of wandering around, I finally found Sprout Tower and fought some Sprout Sages.
• Saw Naoya at the top of Sprout Tower, being arrogant as usual. I expected a battle D:
• Defeated the last Sage.
• Trained a bit and caught an Ekans. Named it 'Monty' and sent it to someone's PC.
• Went (O.O) at the rising platform in the Violet Gym.
• Defeated some pathetic trainers who used Spearow, Pidgey and Hoothoot.
• Defeated Falkner. I didn't expect him to have a Pidgeotto, but I remembered that even if he's the first Gym Leader, he's still a Gym Leader and probably has an evolved form of the Pokemon used by his trainees.
• Got the Egg from the scientist and a... Super Potion from mom?
• Met this girl who told me to take care of the egg.
• Explored the Ruins of Alph again, being the curious little kid that I am, and found the word 'ESCAPE' inscribed in Unown letters. Escape... Rope? I discovered a door and it contained some items.

As I really don't feel like typing out a whole story for every gym battle... considering there's 6, lol, I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

If you liked Koga's matchups, you should see Janines LOL. And if you're wondering why my pokemon aren't leveling very fast: I'm skipping almost every trainer I can, and will go back and grind them when I get to red :P Will speed that up tremendously. To be honest, none of these really gave me any issues. Oddly, the one I had the advantage against, Sabrina, is the only one who fainted any of my pokemon, in which Espeon was faster than Charlotte, and OHKOed her with Psychic.

Normally, I'd spoiler tag all of these, but as there's barely any pictures on this page, I decided not to, :P

He mentioned at one point that he had a throat infection. Perhaps he is on Morphine and is, how they say...."Out of It?"

Found Letter maybe you should clarify for all of us.

GAME Pokémon HeartGold
TYPE Normal

→ DEFEATED VOLKNER
I was only able to defeat his Pidgeotto because I was lucky enough to get a Critical Hit on Sentret's Fury Swipes. But still. Badge One!

→ SENTRET EVOLVED INTO FURRET!
On Route 32! I then visited a Pokémon Centre and a guy asked me if I wanted his rod, sigh. I don't know what's worse, the insinuation or the fact that he then goes on to break the Fourth Wall by explaining fishing.

→ EGG HATCHED INTO TOGEPI!
With a Modest Nature! That's the first useful-Natured Togepi I've ever had lmao. Most of them are Quirky. Anyway, as Mossa set the theme for the game as DC Comics, I named the Togepi Kord after the original Blue Beetle.

→ STAR TREK IV: THE VOYAGE HOME
Travelled back to Twinleaf Town to show Professor Elm the Togepi, as I believe its existence is the only thing that stops him from topping himself. (I never showed the Togepi to him in SS and he's always bringing the damn thing up...) Received an Everstone! And with so much excitement, I'm going to bed.

Used my tactic in Sabrina's gym (Keep using the teleporter opposite you until you get to Sabrina :P )

YES!! I also use the opposite teleporter thing :D

Sabrina is down. She killed Charlotte though :( Espeon moved before her, and BOOM Psychic kill. >_< On Erika now :3

How can a Spe 30 Ariados outspeed a Spe 110 Espeon? o.o

Yeah, That's pretty much my plan to :P It saves a lot of time!


I couldn't because I didn't grind before E4 -.- I remember Misty and (surprisingly) Erika gave me a LOT of trouble. Specifically Erika, because Leaf Storm OHKOes my Pokemon and I didn't want that to happen =P

Caught a lvl 6 female Mareep

Somehow I dislike Mareep, probably because it's the slow Electric type.. =P It does its job pretty well tho.

Moriarty I like your updates! Keep it up.

I hate the fact that there is no specific order in how you take out the Kanto gym leaders. Im going to take out Erika next, I have no Idea who to take out after that :P

I usually do it in this order because that's the order of how I travel (assuming I don't get shocks like Erika Leaf Storming me to death):

Lt. Surge -> Sabrina -> Erika (because the Celadon Store is big XD) -> Power Plant -> Misty -> Janine -> Brock -> Blaine -> Blue.

• Went to Azalea town in search of Kurt.
• Found Kurt's house. Time to make some balls! Wait, you mean I can't make them until later? D:
• Followed Kurt to the Well and noticed a Rocket Grunt blocking the Gym's door.
• Went inside the well and beat up some Rocket Grunts.
• Met and battled Proton, a Rocket Executive. Too bad I can't ask him to let me join Team Rocket.

@EJ

two Questions

are we allowed to trade in eggs of pokes that cannot be caught in the version we play? for example a vulpix, if we are doing a Fire Challenge on Heart Gold.

Are we allowed to trade Eevee and Magneton to D/P/Pl and evolve them there

^ obvious troll is obvious...

anyway... I BEAT RED!!!

sorry I haven't updated, haven't had a strong connection to the internet, so I'll do a breif summary of each GL and Red.

Lt. Surge: I soloed him with Moose. Each pokemon died in one hit from Earthquake

Sabrina- Also got soloed, but by OpalFruits. Espeon died with one X-Scissor, Mr Mime with two, and Alakazm with 3. Had about 17 HP after. xD

Erika- Almost soloed by Billybob. Blizzard hit four times, then he died, and OpalFruits had to finish.

Brock- Half of him was done by Moose, the other By BillyBob. xD

Misty- A group effort, and was the hardest so far.

Janine- Ack, easy. Moose destroyed her

Blaine- Moose+Earthquake= Rpic win. xD got owned by Moose.

Green- Ack, he was terrible! Had two attempts, and had to revive. xD

Now, for the ultimate trainer... Red!

Moose took out his Pikachu easily after Volt Tavkle thankfully missing! Scizor took out Snorlax and Lapras with Rovk Smah, though I had to revive because of giga impact!

Billy-Bob took out Venasaur with a no miss Blizzard (cause of the hail), and Charizard with a overkill Hydro Cannon.

Blastoise got taken out by Scizor.

Team

Moose the Aggron
Level 68

Thunder
Strength
Iron Head
Earthquake

Oh, I love her so much. She is my favorite for sure, and had beasy attack and defense.

OpalFruits the Scizor
Level 70

X-Scissor
Rock Smash
Night Slash
Bullet Punch.

Obviously amazing! xD no comment needed.

Billy-Bob the Empoleon
Level 69

Surf
Blizzard
Hydro Cannon
Horn Drill

My weakest link, but still amazing! Blizzard was my move of choice, ad I had fantastic luck with it.

And so, my challenge is finished. I had so much fun, and I have to say, steel types (which I used to hate) have now become one of my favorite types!

• Showed Eggbert to Elm and he gave me.. an everstone. I walk all the way here and he gives me an everstone. I hate you, Prof. Elm.
• Went back to Azalea Town and entered Ilex Forest.
• Some guy asked me to catch the Farfetch'd.
• Saw the bird, so I need to make it face away from that little opening? Piece o' cake.
• Realized that... This forest is like a cave! Damn it!
• Went back to Azalea Town and entered the Gym.
• Beat up a few trainers in the Gym and challenged Bugsy.
• Almost got defeated by Bugsy. My Pokemon were really underleveled because I had more Pokemon than an average trainer, making Exp distribution quite hard.
• Went through Route 34, and found out the Day Care was there, as well as Lyra's grandparents. Lyra's   grandmother thought I was her boyfriend. Seriously, how can a 10-year old girl have a boyfriend?
• Noticed that the Day Care is in Route 34. 34... 34... Rule 34? O_O
• Entered Goldenrod. The city's so big that my emulator's lagging.
• Went through the tunnel and fought some Super Nerds. I wish I could change my character's sprite to a Super Nerd sprite...
• Played some Voltorb Flip just to pass some time.
• Some guy asked me to take this mail to some guy who's in Route 31. I take out Eggbert to give Kenya a place in my team.
• Battled a few trainers on the way to National Park.
• Noticed a girl just standing there. Is that Cynthia?!

Woah, you really have low levels. Judging by your current levels, you might want to try the route below Safari Zone; it's got pretty good Pokemon @ Tauros and Fearow, Levels 20-24 iirc (probably the highest you can get right now).

Or you could try Ice Cave, yes you can access that area before defeating Radio Tower, should be quite good.

Oh well, I'll kill the rocket boss, then go to ice cave, and I'm so saving clair for later

That's Brock and Blaine down now. Only Blue left then on to Red.

@Ian Watkins, Nice quote ;)

Edit: Blue's down and out. Onto Red, maybe I'll beat him first time, maybe it'll take me 50 soft reset's. Either way I'll keep you updated

Well, Im at Red, Hope it goes well *Gulp*

There's my first soft reset :/

This is Impossible. My pokemon are mostly the same level as his, yet every one of his Pokemon have a move which is super effective agains mine >=(

5 soft resets now. I'll get there eventually

6 Resets. Basically Blastoise has a moveset which contain moves that are super effective against every one of my Pokemon :(

I think i've got him on the ropes here :) Pikachu, Blastoise and Lapras are down ;)

Scary moment there with Venasaur, Took Tyranitar down to about a quarter health, but I crit-killed it with Stone Edge =), Getting really lucky this time :)

Snorlax's health is Massive :P

3 Earthquakes and it's still there :/

Damn Full Restore :(

It's down! 4 earthquakes and the last one was a Crit :P

Anyway Im done!, Charizard was a peice of Cake, 2 surfs from Sharpedo was enough to take it down. Lapras was tricky just due to it's HP but didn't really do any major damage. Pikachu was a Pikachu really, Fast but OHKO from an Earthquake. Snorlax didnt do major damage but it's health was extremely high. Venesaur was pretty half and half it did a lot of Damage but only because I missed twice. Blastoise was a real pain due to it's health and it's stupid super-effective against every one of my Pokemon moveset, I got lucky in the end though I got a crit crunch, It missed with focus blast and I got another crit with crunch which was enough to take it out :)

It's been great fun I have to say, I enjoyed getting replay value out of my Heart gold game. Im definately going to do a dragon mono-type after I do an Ultimate solo challenge. :)

Or even one of these. Poli attacked the weak point for massive damage.

For anyone doubting the authenticity of those last two captures, check bulbapedia. It plainly states that Goldeen can be caught in Dark Cave, and Krabby in Cherrygrove City. I checked...twice...then thrice.

Oh yeah, I cut out all the level grinding, which is why it seems like Poliwag jumped seven levels. No one wants to read about how I totally owned that n00b Bellsprout with Derp's Slam attack, right?

.EJ
June 26th, 2010, 08:30 PM
I would pick Carvanha. Sharpedo is a great underrated pokemon. Once he's packing aqua jet, crunch, ice fang, waterfall/surf then he's sweet.

I just remembered my sig roflmao..:that was unintentional haha

June 26th, 2010, 08:54 PM
Anyway Im done!, Charizard was a peice of Cake, 2 surfs from Sharpedo was enough to take it down.

Could've OHKOed through Stone Edge. :D

It's been great fun I have to say, I enjoyed getting replay value out of my Heart gold game. Im definately going to do a dragon mono-type after I do an Ultimate solo challenge. :)

I thought of doing a Dragon monotype too.. I might try it after my ultimate solo challenge.

Way to ruin the mood, *******. Can't you all go die in a fire somewhere?

I totally LOLed at this.

For anyone doubting the authenticity of those last two captures, check bulbapedia. It plainly states that Goldeen can be caught in Dark Cave, and Krabby in Cherrygrove City. I checked...twice...then thrice.

Woah, I totally didn't know that. What about Poliwag? Water types really get a lot of choices eh.. Sounds fun.

My save file got corrupted. Damn. I gotta do this again from the start T_T

I'm really sorry to hear that oh man.

Woah, I totally didn't know that. What about Poliwag? Water types really get a lot of choices eh.. Sounds fun.

Poliwag I caught in Violet City, by mistake actually. When I was reading Bulbapedia, I thought it said it had a 15% Encounter Rate in Violet City, as opposed to to 5% Rate everywhere else with the Old Rod. Come to find out, I screwed up and read the original G/S/C Encounter Rate list.

So, in the end, I went back to Violet City for nothing. Worked out though, since Dark Cave was just next door, and Cherrygrove just two routes away.

Also, as soon as I get the Good Rod, I'm going back to New Bark Town and catching me a Chinchou. But first, catching a Slowpoke in Slowpoke Well.

Edit: Oh shi-! Just found out I can catch a Tentacruel on Route 32 with my Old Rod. Oh hell yeah, I'm so catching that.

Bwuahahaha.

Before heading to Cinnabar, I stopped by Mt. Moon to meet an old "friend".

http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/8427/mtmoonrival.png

Easy Peasy, no problem at all. :D Then I met my match...

http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/4173/cinnabar.png

He took out EVERY bug except Venomoth, who barely managed to take him out. ._. Not having anything to outspeed Rapidash killed me :S

Anyway, after him, it was onto Blue.

http://img709.imageshack.us/img709/4904/viridian.png

Who also gave me some issues, and took out 3 of my bugs. ._. Then, it was off for some more hours of training, after which I decided to try Red out at level 72...

http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/6234/redd.png

As you can see, all my pokemon were weak after each pokemon. I went through every bug I had on all of his, reviving them and healing them left and right. I went through about 50 Full Restores and Revives, if not more :S

Bugs are strong, but they really need help beating out pokemon almost 20 levels higher than them o_o

And if you do a line EJ, do like "Never underestimate Pokémon others would consider weak. Those Pokémon may be your personal Diamond in the Rough, like Ariados was to me." :P

-Escaped the Tower.
-Bought a few items to prepare for the fight with Falkner and his trainers.
-Beat his Trainers. Pretty easy.
-Battlin' Falkner!

http://i45.tinypic.com/29psqa0.png
Gojira took a few hits while Dragon Dancing, and a few more after being Sand-Attacked. I hate Sand-Attack and its variations.
A +2 Atk Boosted Bite took it out easily, but only after 3 misses in a row >_>

GAME HeartGold
TYPE Normal

→ ROCK TUNNEL OF TUNNELLY DOOM!
...Or not. I grind Togepi from a Lv. 7 to a Lv. 14. Nothing else of interest happens.

→ SLOWPOKE WELL OF SLOW DOOM!
...Or not. Mossa and Kord take down all of the Rocket Grunts easily, and Proton is swept away with Kord's Extrasensory. Ho hum.

→ BUGYS GYM OF BUGGY DOOM!
...Sigh. All of the hangers-on are taken down by Togepi, shaming their reliance on Bug/Poison types, and Bugsy himself is quickly dispatched with a cleverly-timed Super Potion and Mossa getting five Fury Swipes in a row on Scyther. Kakuna and Metapod are taken care of by Kord.

→ STOP. RIVAL TIME!
EEK AN ACTUAL CHALLENGE! Togepi took down Ghastly and Zubat with Extrasensory, then hit a snag with Bayleaf. He used Yawn to make Bayleaf tired, then to wear down its HP ready for Furret I used Metronome, hoping for a damage-dealing move. It was...Spark. Which Paralysed Bayleaf and prevented Yawn from working. Bayleaf KO'd Togepi, and Furret was out. She misses with her first volley of Fury Swipes, but this is fine because Bayleaf can't move. The second volley isn't spectacular, only striking twice; Bayleaf uses Reflect. Even Quick Attack is useless now! Bayleaf's HP is in the orange...Bayleaf uses Synthesis. Mossa uses Fury Swipes. It misses! Synthesis again, and Bayleaf's HP is full. Fury Swipes misses for a third time. Bayleaf uses PoisonPowder. I use an Antidote. In the interval, Bayleaf replaces its Reflect barrier. Fury Swipes takes the HP back down. Bayleaf uses PoisonPowder! After another Fury Swipes volley, Synthesis comes into play again. Fury Swipes misses for a fourth time. Synthesis is used again. I use a Super Potion on Mossa but let the Poisnoning stand as it's not doing too much damage, and then Fury Swipe my way to victory whilst the effects of Paralysis take hold of Bayleaf. jfc I have never been so uptight in a battle since Cynthia of Platinum. Holmes (Rival) makes some sort of speech saying how even though he lost he's better than me etc. and moves on.

tl;dr Fury Swipes has more chance of hitting Mars than a Pokémon sat right in front of it; I hate Synthesis; Rival is a douche.

→ A FARFETCH'D TALE IN ILEX FOREST!
I can never remember how to catch the damn Farfetch'd lmao. I SUCK AT THIS. Anyway I eventually catch them and receive my Cut HM. I don't bother going back for the Charcoal cause...well it's a bit useless in this particular challenge amirite. Anyway, I taught Cut to HM Slave Totodile, then powered off for the football this afternoon.

Yeah, the Normal-type Challenge was awesome. I had a Tauros, Togetic, Miltank, and just all-around awesome Pokemon. I even caught a Dunsparce!

Then, the game reset a few times, sending me back to Mahogany Town. That was cool I guess. I just went back, re-caught my Dunsparce, and went on my merry way. Then it happened again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

Until finally, I simply said '**** this game' and quit the Normal-type Challenge. I was so close to being the first Normal-type Champion for HG/SS. I was already close to the Elite Four, all that was left was Kanto and Red. Instead, I got screwed over by the no$gba. BRB, destroying things with Gyarados' Splash attack out of rage.

-Went to Kurt's house and he went off to the Well.
-Entered the well, and saw Kurt with his aching back. Old man lol.
-Beat up some Rocket Grunt's Pokemon.
-Saw this female Rocket Grunt. What? I can't hit on her? Oh right. This Faust is just 10 years old @_@
-Talked to the Slowpokes. Slowpokes are so awesome.
-Beat Proton. He was pretty easy. A Dragon Dance boosted Bite from Gojira was enough to 1HKO Zubat, though Koffing was much bulkier.
Koffing almost wiped my entire team out. I hate Smokescreen and all of its variations.

But that's how you chose to do it, just like I chose otherwise, XD

Ninjask ftw, but I didn't defeat Red anyway. =P Too lazy to try.

And could you explain more about the color thing? I realise your pics are more colorful than mine, is it because you save in .jpg?

His enemies will fear his powerful Splash attack.

FTW!! :D

Yeah, I thought of that but I didnt want to risk missing and him Ko'ing my Tyranitar. I was keeping Tyranitar as a backup in case Sharpedo fainted :P

Ahh I see. :) Now I am reminded of how skewed RNG is to the AI side.

I might, haven't decided yet.

If I do, it'll probably be Normal.

Hoho then we'll have the same challenges :D See below..

Yeah, Normal looks pretty challenging. Looks quite fun as well, You get Miltank what more do you need :)

I strongly recommend you guys who are trying normal, NOT to use Miltank, simply because she's too powerful. LOL. Tauros might fall into the same category. I kinda regretted using it now because it sorta kicked Furret out of my team.

][/COLOR]tl;dr Fury Swipes has more chance of hitting Mars than a Pokémon sat right in front of it; I hate Synthesis; Rival is a douche.

+1 I agree. Fury Swipes never hit when I was using Furret, against my rival's Bayleef, who used Reflect, the exactly same situation as you.

-I don't know what I'm doing. I'm just running around killing Ekans.
-Going through Route 32, and used an AR Code to change my overworld sprite to Lucas's (is this allowed? It's only a cosmetic change, and doesn't affect the game in any other way)

Ekans is cool ****, everyone's hatin' it.
And how do you do the sprite changing?

- preparing for Red. i´m going to tackle him when my team is around lv. 70 and look what will happen

All the best! :)

GAME Pokémon HeartGold
TYPE Normal
TIME 6:45

→ ARRIVAL IN GOLDENROD!
What the title says. Went straight to the Radio Tower and got my Radio Card, sending Whitney back to her Gym. Then headed North to do a spot of training. Then came back through and picked up TM52: Focus Blast from the Goldenrod Department Store to teach it to Mossa.

→ VS. WHITAPRICORN!
• Kord vs. Clefairy: Used Yawn to send her to sleep, suffering only a Metronome-Double Hit on the way. Got her HP down with Extrasensory, then Whitney used a Super Potion. Clefairy wakes up and uses Double-Slap, which takes about 2hp off per hit, oh no. She then uses Gravity via Metronome...and then Sacred Fire. Togepi is burned, and I don't have a Burn Heal! Ffff. Anyway, Clefairy is down and out by this point.
• Mossa vs. Miltank: Mossa used Focus Blast, which pulled Miltank down to half HP. Not wanting to rely on the 70% Accuracy I then used Headbutt, but Whitney countered with a Super Potion. Tried Focus Blast again and it missed. Miltank used Milk Drink to get back to maximum HP. Focus Blast misses for a third, fourth and fifth time. Mistake! Know what else is super-duper? I forgot to pick up any Super Potions at the Mart! Mossa uses Headbutt twice, which causes two Flinches. Mossa is then taken down by Stomp.
• Kord vs. Miltank: He's at 18/56 HP and Burned. Miltank uses Attract. Kord falls in love. Kord is immobilised. And hurt by the burn. And taken down by Stomp!
• Totodile is with me and is sent out, but I order him to Leer so no damage is taken by Miltank. He is OHKO'd by Stomp.

tl;dr First loss to Whitney thanks to my lack of insight with buying medicine.

→ VS. WHITAPRICORN. ONE MOAR TIME!
To Goldenrod Department Store! I buy 5 Super Potions, which takes all of my money. However, it should be enough.
• Kord vs. Clefairy: Use Yawn, then Metronome, which turns into Cut. Clefairy uses Mimic, then falls asleep. Kord becomes infatuated. Regardless, he uses Extrasensory twice to get her HP down to around 10, before Whitapricorn uses a Super Potion. Clefairy wakes up and uses DoubleSlap. Kord uses Metronome-Thunder, which misses. Clefairy uses Metronome-...something, which hits. Kord uses Metronome-Softboiled, which saves me a Potion. Clefairy uses DoubleSlap. Kord is immobilized. Clefairy uses Yawn. Kord uses Yawn. I switch Kord out.
• Mossa vs. Clefairy: Clefairy uses Metronome-Moonlight, which brings her HP right back up. Mossa uses Headbutt twice and KO's Clefairy.
• Mossa vs. Miltank: I use an X Accuracy on Mossa. Miltank uses Stomp. Mossa uses Focus Blast and misses. The second Focus Blast hits. Mossa is down to 4HP by this time, but I restore her with a Super Potion. Miltank starts her Rollout. Mossa's Focus Blast hits again. Miltank is down and out!

tl;dr X Accuracies rock; Mossa is cute; Whitapricorn cries a lot; Togepi ran off with Clefairy for a short-lived affair.

→ OTHER STUFF THAT MATTERS, SORT OF.
Beneath Goldenrod: So many collectors, so many Poison types...so many Exp. Points for Kord. =] He also gets a Haircut (no, I don't know how either) from the Younger Hairdresser Brother. Oh, and Ethan gives me a Fashion Case. I use it to store extra Apricorns in, idk.
National Park: Grinding, grinding, la la la. ...*twitch* WHY DOES EVERYBODY ELSE HAVE SNUBBULLS? DO WANT. ;~;
Achy-Breaky Tree: Welp, it was broken by the time Mossa was done with it.

Aaaand I finally remembered to dig out my camera. TEAM PHOTO!

http://pics.livejournal.com/skybard/pic/00157szfYep, using my Phat DS. I love him. <3

Ngh...Route 38 is still sooo far away, and it contains the rest of my team. ;~; Snubbull, Miltank, Tauros, I WILL CATCH YOU ALL EVENTUALLY nah hah harrr.

Congratulations Sleet!

I defeated Brock and now I'm on my way to defeat Blaine. Blaine might be a bit of an issue considering steel is weak to fire:( I'm definitely going to train before I get there though. After reading some of the posts on here I realized that I completely forgot to go to MT Moon! So I'll have to go there and then to Dragon's Den and then I'm going back to the E4 after I defeat Blue to train my pokemon up some more before going to defeat Red.

My team:

Steel lv60
Thunder fang
Earthquake
Fire fang
Ice fang

Nyx lv61
Steel Wing
Peck
Spikes
Night Slash

Yin lv60
Vacuum Wave
X-scissor
Slash
Bullet Punch

Gah, I've missed a lot and I'm way, WAY overdue for an update, sorry guys :( This comes from a DS having a mind of it's own and spending numerous days trying to fix it while saving to get a DSi :@ It's not cool at all.

First off, big shout outs and congratulations to Emoxy, Myzou, Sleet and Ian Watkins for completing their challenges :) Nice one girls and guys :D

With that out of the way, the next entry into my Grass Monotype challenge!

Ze Zeyphr Badge...or not

I'm actually scared over how I'm going to beat this gym with just Grass pokemon...sigh. Take the win Hoppip and Chikorita!

Where to begin?

-Grinded Hoppip to level 10, so it was battle ready with the best move in the games, no argument, Tackle.
-Decided against talking to that man in a green outfit in the Pokemart. Yes, the Jirachi event is here :P quick reminded for you all :D
-Took on the towering Sprout Tower with Hoppip and Chikorita, crying as I defeat the Grass-typed Bellsprouts, laughing manically as I slaughter the irrelevant typed Hoothoots.
-Saw my rival Cyclone, getting bashed by the Eldar. Humourous, as he's a jerk. A big fat jerk.
-Who must have heard me, as I started on him, though he quickly escape when I reminded him of his defeat at MY HANDS!
-So I took on the Eldar and naturally, I won. Suck it. ****.
-I got TM70 Flash. Great, just great. I can
-Now I'm going to grind until both Chikorita and Hoppip have evolved before taking on Violet City Gym. Then Falkner can eat it.

CURRENT TEAM:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/58/Spr_b_g4_152.png

Redemption the Mild Chikorita

Level 13

-Razor Leaf
-Tackle
-Synthesis
-Poison Powder

Ehh, may use this guy. May not. We'll see. Probably not. This guy is as useful as a glass hammer. All he does is get paralyzed and then die.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/d/d1/Spr_b_g4_187.png

Fairie the Jolly Hoppip

Level 15

-Tackle
-Poison powder
-Synthesis
-Sleep Powder

Finally this girl is coming around, it's proven to be very effective against Bellsprouts. Admittedly, they only know Vine Whip.




Sorry this is such a short update, you'd expect more from the amount of time I've been gone. :( I'll make this up with some other update, I promise, or if I get round to beat this Gym later today. :)

Good luck with Blaine Amberfunk :)
Good luck with Falkner Corruptodile :)



Ehh, may use this guy. May not. We'll see. Probably not. This guy is as useful as a glass hammer. All he does is get paralyzed and then die.

Lol. Chikorita gets some pretty good HP when it fully evolves into Meganium mind you ;)

Lol. Chikorita gets some pretty good HP when it fully evolves into Meganium mind you ;)

Thanks :)

I may consider Meganium, it's a toss up between him and a Tangrowth. I'm leaning more towards a Tangrowth, so...

emoxy
June 27th, 2010, 05:05 PM
Thanks Corruptodile!
(You might want to level Chikorita up a bit to get Reflect, though that'll be too much level grinding =P)
Tangrowth gets killed by any special attack. XD

Oh ya, to all the people who're at Kanto (or those who want some extra challenge even after beating Red), you might want to try the double battle @ Dragon's Den:

1. Thrash rival @ Mt. Moon.
2. Wait till Tue/Thurs/Sat.
3. Go Dragon's Den.
4. Find Rival training.
5. Talk to him, attract Lance/Clair to come.
6. Fight hard battle.

Thanks Sleet! Turns out I didn't need any luck going against Blaine. With a few hyper potions and revives I defeated him. Here's how the battle went because this was the most exciting out of all of the gym battles.

Nyx vs. Magcargo

Magcargo used overheat
Nyx fainted
Go Steel
Steel used earthquake first with the help of quick claw
Magcargo fainted

Steel vs Magmar
Magmar used overheat

Go Steel
Steel used earthquake with the help of quick claw
Magmar fainted 1 hit ko

Steel vs Rapidash
Rapidash used overheat

Go Quilava
Revived Steel
Rapidash used quick attack
Quilava fainted

Revived Steel
Rapidash used quick attack
Vaporeon fainted
Go Steel
Used hyper potion on Steel
Rapidash used overheat
Used hyper potion on Steel

Now I'm stuck at dragon's den. I tried to do the double battle against Clair and Lance and they kept fainting my pokemon. I got so frustrated that I just turned it off. I'll try again tomorrow. Anyway now my team is at lv 65 and they all still have the same movesets.

Well i was a bit impatient and took on Red earlier as planned, but first i ran to dragons den for the double battle. rivals pokemon fainted one after another. Delia had to fight alone, but in the end she was the single winner.

Here´s the Story of the last battle in my fighting challenge:

Red send in Pikachu, i Chops. Pikachu used Volt Tackle. Chops survived with 19 HP left and used Earthquake. Pikachu fainted.

Red sent in Charizard...damn I was afraid cause i thought this will be the hardest. Charizard used Flare Blitz, while i used a Full Restore. I had to use another Full Restore and Charizard tried an Air Slash but misses. Charizard attacked again with Air Slash. I didn´t know what was happening, but Charizard missed again and Chops used its chance and used Rock Slide.OHKO

Then Red used Lapras. I switched to Bobby. Bobby used Thunder Punch for 35% and Lapras used Psychic for 65%. Bobby tried a Sky Uppercut but missed. Lapras used Blizzard and Bobby fainted. I switched to Chops. Lapras used Blizzard, Chops survived and used Cross Chop. Lapras somehow survived with a few HP left. Red used a Full Restore and Chops another Cross Chop for 70%. i used A Fullrestore and Lapras attcked with Brine for 30% and Blizzard for the Rest. Chops fainted. I switched to Julie and used Megahorn. Lapras fainted.

Red sent out BLastoise. I switched to Delia. Blastoise used Focus Blast all the time and Hits. I used Fulrestores and Rock Climb. Blastoise was at 30-40& Hp left wen the Hail made Delia faint. Stiched to Julie and a critical Megahorn finished Blastoise of.

Red sent out Snorlax. I decided for Chad Lee and revived Chops (Max Revive). snorlax used Shadow Ball for 25 % damage. Chad lee used Sky Uppercut and brought Snorlax down to half HP. Snorlax used Shadowball once more and Chad LEe used Sky Uppercut to make Snorlax faint.

Red Send out Venusaur. Surprisingly Venusaur gave me the hardest battle. his Sludge Bomb is incredibly strong and the fight goes like: Venusaur:Sludge Bomb; I used Full Restore and Revives. The Hail did the Damage on Venusaur and at then Chad lee was able to kick Venusaur (now at 45% Hp left) with a Flare Blitz out.

That´s it, I´m a Champion.
My line: "This was so much more intense than the normal game experience. You´ll learn to love Pokemon you never looked at before."

Here´s my final Team:

Delia the Poliwrath
lv. 71 / Quirky

Dig
Blizzard
Surf
Rock Climb

Delia is an unexpected Hero for me. Poliwraths can take an unbelievable amount of Damage and are faster than you would expect. Delia won the double battle in Dragon´s den almost alone.Absolutely recommended

Bobby the Hitmonchan
lv. 71/ Serious

Mega Punch
Thunder Punch
Sky Uppercut
Ice Punch

The Move-fixer. Bobby brought in the elemental moves to deal with nasty Birds. It was a wise decision to replace Hitmonlee with Hitmonchan.


Julie the Heracross
lv. 69 / Timid

Brick Break
Mega Horn
Shadow Claw
Aerial Ace

Julie saved me several times, especially when i fought Psychic Pokemon. I would use it again in future challenges.



Chops the Machamp
lv. 70 / Bashful

Rock Slide
Earthquake
Cross Chop
Strength

This is one physical Powerhouse, highest attack stat of my team. with the right Moveset, Machamp is capable dealing with any other foe.




Chad Lee the Blaziken
lv. 68 / Sassy

FlameThrower
Sky Uppercut
Shadow Claw
Flare Blitz

Some sort of an allrounder. Blazikens Moves let it be a dangerous opponent for many other pokemon, but i have to admit that i didn´t used it often. Either way, it did a great job killing bugs and poison-plants.

well then. I´m signing up for the grass Challenge.
Update´s coming soon.

Hmm, I might actually do a Psychic Challenge...

With Xatu, Girafarig, Jynx, Exeggutor, and Slowbro. (Since I can't get slowking without trading, and to my knowledge, you can't do that on an emulator ._.)

My only issue is WHEN to evolve Exeggcute, due to the fact he learns different moves as Exeggutor/Cute. o_o

Also the fact that you can't get a psychic type until after you beat the Slowpoke Well, unless I'm mistaken... Natu MIGHT be accessible before, not sure.

EDIT: Nope... Xatu isn't available until after you're like, 6th badge o_o *sigh* I don't really want to fight Falkner with Unown, XD At least I can get Slowpoke to fight Bugsy... but god. XD Anyone know when Girafarig is available? Exeggcute is available in trees after headbutt... Jynx is in Ice Path, and Slowpoke in Slowpoke Well. Xatu is afteryou get surf and go through Union Cave... but not sure bout Girafarig.

Dr. Faustus
June 28th, 2010, 01:52 AM
You can get Girafarig in Routes 43 and 48, and in the Safari Zone (I think).

Edit:
Very quick update.


-Went back to Azalea Town and asked Kurt to make some.. . balls. Hehe.
-Went inside the gym. This should be easy. Gojira has Rock Slide, Scarface has Peck and Garmr has Ember.
-Beat his pathetic trainers.
-Battlin' Bugsy!

http://i50.tinypic.com/2va1t9c.png
NOT GOOD
The website I use to crop the white part of my paint images out is not accepting PNG files, even if the error messages say they only accept a few file types, INCLUDING PNG. What f****ts.

-Bugsy sent out Metapod after his Scyther U-Turned. Lol noob. Who uses Metapod? Scarface 2HKO'd him with Peck, and then learned Wing Attack. Sweet!
-Bugsy sent out Scyther again, I sent out Gojira. Scyther uses Focus Energy, and Gojira uses Rock Slide. 1HKO!
-I send out Garmr, Bugsy sends out... KAKUNA? Can't he evolve his two cocoon Pokemon?! Garm 1HKOs with Crit Ember.
Gg no re kthxbye
Notes about the gym leader: I always thought Bugsy would look better as a girl.

My current team:

Slowpoke is awesome.

I changed my overworld sprite to Lucas by using an AR code. Type
'SoulSilver Player Modifier AR Code' or something like that in Google.
I like Lucas because of his kangol hat.


-Rival rumble!
http://i45.tinypic.com/wcntqc.jpg
Silver'd look good as a girl, too.

-Garmr 2HKO'd Gastly with Ember.
-Gojira 1HKO'd Zubat with Rock Slide after a DD.
-Scarface 3HKO'd Bayleef with Wing Attack. Stupid Reflect.
-Won the battle! Naoya's still as full of pride as ever, though.

EJ allows pseudo-trading via save file editing, I asked before, it's up to you whether you wanna do it. :D (I asked for Gengar when I was deciding the other time)

Natu is available after Surf iirc, not sure if Strength is required.

Can evolve Exeggcute at Level 47 (Psychic), get Leaf Storm via Exeggutor. Wood Hammer (Level 37) runs off lousier Attack stat.

Girafarig is available after 3rd gym, go through Mt. Mortar to Mahogany town and go up. (I used it :D)

Update

Well, my names Flowers. Why? I dunno...
My journey startet as i switched off the wii and went downstairs. I just entered the room as my mother shouted at me, because i forgot my bag and other stuff in the living room. She told me that Elm wanted to see me...sigh...I went outside and bumped into that stupid girl Lyra...geez...don´t listen to her and got to Elm. Elm talks as much as Lyra. Shortly before i got my Pokemon he got a call from a Mr. Pokemon...stupid name. And if it´s not enough, Elm sent me lookin for Mr. Pokemon´s dicovery. At least i got my Pokemon. I choose Chikorita, cause I somehow felt a connection, and named her Bloom.
Frustrated by my task, I smasched many wild Pokemon on my way to Mr. Pokemon. There arrived, i got crashed again by a wave of words, but hey...i got a Pokedex. I went back to Elm, but stopped in Cherrygrove cause a wannabe-bigshot stood in my way. I finished him off in a few seconds and went back to Elm. There i was arrested cause that dumb officer thought I had stolen one of Elm´s Pokes. The situation cleared up, I handed over the egg and endured the talk. Finally i can start my Journey. I went to violet and caught a Bellsprout. I named her Jil. I trained Jil so it became lv. 11, then I entered the Sprout Tower. It was a peace of cake. Afterards I trained Bloom til evolution and challenged that Falkner guy. Synthesis is a great move. Falkner annoyed me with Roost but Bloom poisoned his Pidgeotto. It was only a matter of time til my victory. I got a call from Elm. He wants me to hatch the egg. As If i have the time for Babysitting. But i´m a kind person and took the egg from that Nerd. Then, when i thought i could move on a weird girl starts to talk with me...Why is everyone talking so much...

Any tips on how to defeat Whitney? Is it alright for me to switch my Pokemons' genders so Miltank will just shut up?
Whitney's Miltank is being a Nazi now.

Edit: Let me try setting up Dragon Dance while Clefairy is alive. That worked for me with DDDos while fighting Blissey.

Use PokeSav to edit your Slowpoke into Slowking if you're using a ROM.
Use http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php to convert your normal savefile into a 512k one.

Unfortunately, that really doesn't help, lol. XD My knowledge of ROMs is extremely limited. :P

Obviously, the game hasn't been started yet, just for future use, I'd like to know how o_o

Anyway:

I will be going as Fyn in the game though. Thought I'd change it up a bit and go by my name in my actual SoulSilver game, :P Plus, Lyra's hair is starting to bug me. >_>

-Bought a LOT of stuff. I have no more Pokedollars left.
http://i50.tinypic.com/6h6dck.jpg Too lazy to crop the white stuff out.
Pokemon needs more loli gym leaders like Candice and Maylene :3

-Setting up Dragon Dance with Gojira on Clefairy... a bit. A Dragon Danced Clefairy is fierce with her Metronome, though. Clefairy dies to a Rock Smash!
-A fierce +6 Attack FALCOWN PAWN- I meant Rock Smash easily took out Miltank!
-THE ROCK SMASH HAS VANQUISHED THE HORRIBLE COW

Shut up and stop crying, Whitney, your cow was the one that made my Pokemon cry.

-Going to try and find a Dusk Stone in the Pokeathlon Dome!
-Augh! The Pokeathlon makes my arms hurt and makes my emulator lag. I'll just have to try more for that Stone!

iirc as Pokeathlon games progress the emulator slows down to like, 20%?

Will send you a PM now.

Use PokeSav to edit your Slowpoke into Slowking if you're using a ROM.
Use http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php to convert your normal savefile into a 512k one.

If you edit no$gba.ini, and change this line:
SAV/SNA File Format == Raw
The word "Raw" without "" must be exact casing, R is upper-case.
This will make no$gba save in 512kb, and saves the need for converting.

Try doing the job of a Receptionist at a County Food bank for free. :16:

I greet people (and help them with what they need), make appointments for the entire week, pull files of people with appointments, take donations and give receipts, answer and answer questions on a multi line phone, rerouting if necessary to the appropriate person, input data, file paperwork of clients who went through their appointment, do intake interviews for people's appointments, help them go through our system and get food, get emergency boxes, another government box, Make sure all the signatures and people who were seen match up every day, check the temperatures of the fridges and freezers twice a day, and quite a few other things that are hard to remember at times, XD And if it wasn't obvious, the phone thing takes place DURING everything else. >_>

I do that for free. I'm very tempted to stop helping the 2 days a week I do, or bring it down to one day a week. I worked 7 hours on Friday and I couldn't get a break. I kept trying, but there was no one to cover for me. It's technically even illegal. :S It was probably the busiest day I've ever seen for the Food Bank in the past Year I've worked on the front desk too. I literally passed out when I got home ._.

So yea. XD I can't wait til I find a paying job ._. I do have to say, the volunteer job has given me some great freakin receptionist experience for the future.

Journey Diary, Part II

After I finally got the chance to leave Violet, i fought all those trainers with my powerflowers. Nobody there was a worthy foe...boring...so I walked down the Route and entered the Union Cave and got eventually to Azalea. In Order to get in that dumb Bug Gym I had to interfere with the business of an old dude and some weird looking guys...I hate small and wimpy obstacles...After I kicked those Grunts out the well...right a well...I mean, who the heck is hiding in a well...geez...supid fools, I could take on Bugsy. by that time Jil has been evolved to Weepinbell. Those bugs were nasty...I had to defeat them with Tackle and Wrap...but i made it...again Synthesis proves it´s worth. After the fight I wanted to move on but...Dammit...that red-haired fool really wants to fight me...I´ve never sen something that stupid, I mean he owns a Quilava, fights against Grass types and DON`T uses Ember...sigh...I´m of to Ilex forest.

I do that for free. I'm very tempted to stop helping the 2 days a week I do, or bring it down to one day a week. I worked 7 hours on Friday and I couldn't get a break. I kept trying, but there was no one to cover for me. It's technically even illegal. :S It was probably the busiest day I've ever seen for the Food Bank in the past Year I've worked on the front desk too. I literally passed out when I got home ._.

So yea. XD I can't wait til I find a paying job ._. I do have to say, the volunteer job has given me some great freakin receptionist experience for the future.

Ummmm....Yeah, Changed my mind about the whole work thing. All I do at school is sit on a chair and ignore a teacher :P

Thanks Corruptodile!
(You might want to level Chikorita up a bit to get Reflect, though that'll be too much level grinding =P)
Tangrowth gets killed by any special attack. XD



You're welcome :)

And Tangrowth may very well give up and flop to special attacks, but he's a beast at taking physical assaults.

I'm going to get a Roserade to sponge up the special attacks. BS 105 ain't bad, and she's got the fire power to take on all that oppose her :)

Anyway, an update for all you people!


FINALLY THE ZEYPHR BADGE!

-With Hoppip and Chikorita finally evolving, I felt confident to take on Falkner.
-Beat the trainers that stood in my way. Falkner was a doddle. See spoiler for battle.



Falkner: I'm Falkner, the Violet City Pokémon Gym Leader!
People say you can clip Flying-type Pokémon's
wings with a joly of electricity...I won't allow such
insults to bird Pokémon! I'll show you the real power
of the magnificent bird Pokémon!

I understand...I'll bow out gracefully.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5a/VSFalkner.png

...For pity's sake! My dad's cherished bird Pokémon... But a defeat is a defeat. All right. Take this official Pokémon League Badge. This one is the Zephyr Badge.

Aero recieved the Zephyr badge from Falkner!

With that Badge, Pokémon, including traded Pokémon up to Lv. 20, will obey you without question. It also enables you to use the hidden move Rock Smash anytime outside of battle.

Aero recieved TM51 Roost! Aero put the TM in the TM's and HM's pocket.

By using a TM, a Pokémon will instantly learn a new move. Think before you act - a TM can be used only once. TM51 contains Roost. It restores half the max HP. There are Pokémon Gyms in cities and towns ahead. Make good use of them! As for your next move... I would suggest Azalea Town.

If you're easily offended, do not open this spoiler. If not, see my reaction towards Falkner.

**** YOU FALKNER!

Remember how I said Falkner was a doddle? I LIED. FOR GRASS POKEMON HE'S INSANE.

Falkner is the biggest d*** about in the Pokémon world and should be burned from a hanging noose.



-I am now the proud owner of the Zeyphr badge! I feel like an advanced noob :P
-Elm requested I take my egg back. Damn well better do. I now beast you in badge's old man.
-Healed up and got dat egg.
-Wierd Kimono girl is telling me to look after this egg, which ruined the plans of omelette tonight.
-Went to Ruins of Alph and solved a puzzle! Huzzah!
-Climbed up the hole and used escape rope to find some items! More huzzah!
-Cleared Route 32 with expertise and looked at Union Cave. Big, scary. No. Azalea Gym is going to be scary, no doubt.
-Saved at Union Cave, in order to chill from Falkner and his God damn Pidgeotto.

CURRENT TEAM:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/3/3a/Spr_b_g4_153.png

Redemption the Mild Bayleef

Level 16

-Synthesis
-Razor Leaf
-Tackle
-Poison Powder

This guy helped build up the eventual slaughter of Falkner's Pidgeotto. I may keep him, may not. He's certainly proving his worth.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/aa/Spr_b_g4_188.png

Fairie the Jolly Skiploom

Level 18

-Synthesis
-Tackle
-Sleep Powder
-Stun Powder

Couldn't have won without this girl. She's staying on the team without a doubt.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/c/c1/DPEgg.png

It appears to move occasionally. It may be close to hatching.

If it's not a Grass Pokémon, I don't f***ing care.

BADGES

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4a/Zephyr_Badge.png


I'll update when I've calmed down from Falkner and prepared myself to scream at Bugsy.



On a final note, CONGRATULATIONS TO DRAGONSFREAK FOR COMPLETEING HIS CHALLENGE! :D

Come on he´s not that hard, only annoying:mudkip;):
and i certainly know what i´m talking about, cause i beat him only with my lv. 16 Bayleef (There was no need to use Bellsprout).

but well done congrats for you badge and don´t take Bugsy easy, cause his Scyther can be a real freak.

June 28th, 2010, 09:56 AM
I over reacted. :embarrass But I found him impossible when he kept roosting and gusting my beloved Pokemon. I was seriously gonna consider grinding Skiploom to level 24 so it could learn leech seed with sleep powder and tackle.

At least he's done and done with. Bring it Bugsy.

I'll keep my cool for this one, don't worry guys.

From Myzou and dragonsfreak.

Hey EJ I was curious if I could do two monotype challenges at once. The one I am doing now and another one in heartgold?

Update: Currently leveling up my pokemon at Mt Silver. Steel pokemon level up ungodly slow:(

Myzou
June 28th, 2010, 11:02 PM
Just a small question:

EJ, have you ever considered on the Champions on the first page, for multi-type champions like Emoxy, making their name equally the colors of the types they've finished? (So Emoxy would be have bug green and half the liiiight yellow, Toto would be part bug green, flying light blue, and water blue?)

Just something that caught my eye for whatever reason. XD

I will actually start the psychic challenge when I finish eatching TimeRanger... I'm on Episode 35 of 50 now, XD i'm not looking forward to fighting Falkner with just Unown o_o Finding an Unown with HP electric/ice/rock will be harder. XD (Figuring out WHAT the HP type is will be worse, XD)

And yes, I will be taking him on with Unown. I want it to be a purely Psychic Challenge ASAP. :P

Finally! I am finished with my steel type challenge:) Here is my final team:

Nyx lv77
Peck
Night Slash
Rock Slide
Steel Wing

Steel lv74
Thunder Fang
Fire Fang
Ice Fang
Earthquake

Yin lv75
Vacuum Wave
Slash
Bullet Punch
X-Scissor

The battle against Red was far easier than the double battle at dragon's den (which I finally beat after about 7-8 resets).

Now I am going to start a poison type challenge.

Congratulations amberfunk!

What you going to do now? :)

And now an update on the Grass Monotype challenge with me, Corruptodile

The Hive Badge!

First, off I quickly update to the point where I am:

-Cleared Union Cave with ease. No really, it was easy.
-Cleared Route 33 with ease. Again, it was easy.
-Azalea town! Which leads off into my next destination, Ilex Forest!
-Caught an Oddish, name her Mandrake. Goooo Mandrake! You'lll do for now.
-Grinded Mandrake to level 19 in order to take on Bugsy.
-Cleared Slowpoke with ease. Well, slight difficulty. But nothing over-levelled pokemon can't handle.
-Whooped Proton's ass in battle. He went crying home to Giovanni.
-Kurt offered to make me some pokeballs for old time sakes. So...yay...
-Cleared the trainers in the Gym with ease.
-Healed up all ma Pokemon and prepared to take on the hardest Gym Leader to Grass Types.

Bugsy was surprisingly easy when I did a test run. Will it be the same again? Check the Spoiler for ze battle against Bugsy!



I'm Bugsy! I never lose when it comes to Bug-type Pokémon.
My researcg is going to make me the authority on Bug-type
Pokémon! Let me demonstrate what I've learned from my
studies.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/2a/VSBugsy.png

Whoa, amazing! You're an expert on Pokémon! My research isn't complete yet. OK, you win. Take this Badge.

Aero recieved the HIve Badge from Bugsy!

Do you know the benefits of the Hive Badge? If you have it, Pokémon up to Lv. 30 will obey you, even traded ones. Pokémon that know Cut will be able to use it outside of battle, too. Here, I also want you to have this.

Aero obtained TM89 from Bugsy! Aero put the TM89 in the TMs & Hms Pocket.


M89 contains U-turn. It lets your Pokémon attack, then switch with the next Pokémon in your party. Isn't that great?

Sure is Bugsy, sure is. Good game my friend.



With him out of the way, I look onwards towards the Goldenrod Gym with my trio of amazing Grass Pokemon.

But first, Ilex forest.

EDIT: No-one said anything about my rival coming! To cut a long story short, I defeated him. Bad. Cyclonr once again moaned on how I won through luck, not skill. Come on. He had a Quilava on him. Seriously. Not to mention a Zubat and Gastly to wall ma team.

Mandrake the Calm Oddish

Fairie the Jolly Skiploom

Flowers Journey Diary, part III

Ilex Forest was fun. First i had to help a small boy finding the Farfetch´d from his Boss, man that little boy was crybaby, but i got a HM01 at least. Then there was this sick dude smashing his head against a tree again and again. he taught BLoom how to do that. I think Bloom is as crazy as that dude, cause she seems to enjoy it. After I walk the path along i met one of those weird kimono girls. she was lost in the forest, what made me laugh because she was standng right next to the exit. Anyway, Bloom showed her the way out. I followed her out of the forest and found myself on Route 34. I let Bloom smash her Head against some trees and suddenly an Exeggcute fell down. I felt that it want to be trained by me and caught it. He likes his new name:
Owen.
Entered Goldenrod. What a town, it is full off crybabies. I visited the Radio Tower and got a Radio Card after i participated in a Quiz for 5 year old kids. Then a girl talked to me, whining about the hard question number 3.
Then i found a bycicle shop by accident. the owner was crying to and begged to me. I should ride on of his bikes to do some promotion, I did and he called a bit later and said that the bike is a gift. thanks Mr.. Damn...my Bag has an impressive capacity.
Ok, with my new Stuff and Owen (now lv.20) in my Team i went to the Gym. Rushed through there and beat all the trainers...no problem Owen fought well. next the Leader...Oh no it was that annoying girl from the Radio Tower. She sent in a Clefairy I sent in Jil. Clefairy was down after 3 Vine Whips. Then she sent out Miltank. I wanted to test Owen Limits and sent it out. Leech Seed is an incredible fascinating attack. Owen almost won but fainted because of love and a Stomp. I switched to Bloom and a Headbutt later that Cow fainted.
I thought i´ll get my third badge, but no she startet to cry...after a slap in her face she comes back to mind and finally gave me my Badge.
I left the Town of Crybabies to enter a Bug contest, I won and got a sun stone...
...geez...i need to get back to Crybaby Town and organize a water can...

There are plenty of Psychic types available early on. :P

Unown is available before the first gym, Slowpoke before the second, Exeggcute and Drowzee before the third, etc.

The types eligible for egg transfers is listed in the first post :P

Sleet

Don't think your allowed any eggs for psychic. The egg trading rule can be viewed on page one of this thread.

"Pokemon types that are rare/scarce warrant egg trading. This means the dragon, ice, dark, fighting, steel, ghost and electric types are the only ones to get eggs."

You can use Seribii to find Psychic types.

@Myzou

Lol :P Unown FTW so it seems :) Are you getting a Slowbro or King then?

And now...

An update for all you lovely people out there.

-Sorted out some farfetched problems that a boy was having. As a reward I got HM01. And a cookie.
-Caught a Paras and taught it Cut. Excellant. <-read in Mr. Burns voice.
-Taught headbutt to Redemption and (somehow) Fairie. Fairie is the lightest pokemon ever. How the **** does she learn Headbutt?!
-Went back to Azalea town to get some Charcoal
-Caught a HERACROSS and AIPOM!
-Realised I was looking in the wrong section for a specific Pokemon and promptly face palmed.
-Went through Ilex forest again.
-Saw that Kimino girl again, though she claimed to be someone else. Bulls*** I say. Abosolute ****ing bulls***. Mandrake showed her out, thank god. She's a b****.
-Started headbutting trees with Fairie. I managed to find my Pokémon, Exeggcute! I love Exeggcutor. It's an amazing pokemon. I named my Exeggcute 'TNTree' as Exeggcutor is a tree. That can learn Explosion. Though I doubt my Exeggutor will even learn Explosion.
-Fancy colouring out of the way, I cleared Ilex forest.
-I also cleared Route 34, finding Lyra at the day care centre. She gives me my number as I'm the numba #1 player round these parts. Just saying.
-Her Gran wasn't too impressed by my behaviour. I have no intention of getting her number.
-However, grandad gave me her number and, more worryingly, his own.
-During the process of clearing Route 34, Mandrake evolved. How cool is that!

At Goldenrod city!

Wow, this place is huge. And I mean huge. First off, I looked for a bike shop that had been advertised upon entering the city. Soon enough I found it, surprised by a lack of customers. Bad marketing, it seems. The business owner requested that I advertise and promote his business by showing off and riding one of his products to the target customer, so that he could attract enough customers to break even and make a profit. I complied with this request and started to brag about my bike. Soon enough, I got a call from said owner, who said I could keep the bike. Awesome! My expertise and knowledge on business got me a free bike!

I went to the National Park to train a bit, also taking part in the Bug Catching Contest. Despite my severe disadvantage, I was able to capture a Butterfree. I had too, my signature made me. As a result, love for Butterfree shone through and I came first!

CURRENT TEAM:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/86/Spr_b_g4_102.png

TNTree the Rash Exeggcute
Level 14

-Uproar
-Hypnosis
-Leech Seed
-Reflect

I'm annoyed I have to wait until level 47 before she learns Psychic and Leaf Storm. However, should be a powerhouse and reliable answer to Fighting and hopefully Poison Types.

_________________________________________________________________

Mandrake the Calm Gloom
Level 21

-Mega Drain
-Acid
-Sleep Powder
-Stun powder

She evolved! She evolved! Now...will you provide well? Mandrake is a decent pokemon, but I know, and she knows, this is temporary.

_________________________________________________________________

Fairie the Jolly Skiploom
Level 23

-Headbutt
-Bullet Seed
-Sleep Powder
-Stun Spore

Fairie finally has some decent attacking moves, but will still be a Leech Staller. She's coming along nicely though, and only 4 levels off Jumpluff, so all's good.

_________________________________________________________________

Hilton the Gentle Paras
Level 6

-Scratch
-Cut
-Stun Spore

Served me only to get through Ilex forest. Too weak and not in my final team. Would have liked to use her, but meh. Too weak. I may switch her in if another member under performs. Gotta admire the name though :)

_________________________________________________________________

Elegance the Bold Butterfree

I know I'm unable to use her in battles, I only caught her to get a Shed shell at least. And my sig begged me to do it.

Haha, not mention it's always got a Nasty Plot in it's head :P That's one reason I like Slowking over Slowbro.

I got Exeggcute on Route 34, just outside Ilex Forest. It's probably the best place to find them as you just get Headbutt. You might be able to get them inside the forest, but I'm not sure, I just gave up in there:P

-Surfed around near the entrance of Mt. Mortar.
-A Goldeen pwned Gojira and Garmr. Scarface managed to take it out.
-Skipped Mt. Mortar by surfing. I hate caves.
-Entered Mahogany Town, home of the Ninja... I hope there aren't any ninjas wearing orange.
-Looked for this 'Lake of Rage'.
-Found it. Rocket Grunts made me pay $1000? Wat.
-Battled a few trainers.
-The Lake of Rage is a ****ing maze...
-Got to the Red Gyarados!
-Battled the Red Gyarados and captured it! Huzzah!
-Entered the not-so-secret Rocket Base under the store.
-Battled some Grunts and some Scientists....
-GOJIRA EVOLVED! Into a Cascoon mixed with a Pupitar? I need to evolve this guy quick. He looks like a Poison / Rock type. (Gojira is shiny :3)
-These grunts are fools. They tell you about a secret switch, and the scientist tells you that his PC is the one that controls the alarms. No wonder Giovanni will leave this team.

Ok update time: Started off the game with a weird guy questioning my gender and name (possible pedo?) and my mom giving me some equipment necessary for.. well everything.

Went to a creepy lab and picked a monster crocodile (that's a quarter of my size) then set out on a journey to retrieve an egg. Got the egg, then got a call from the prof! Went back and found out some jerk stole a Pokeyman >:(. Later, I reached Cherrygrove and did a little trading with an old buddy of mine.

I recieved two eggs, both which promptly hatched into Tyrogue's!! Update later after defeating first two gyms.

^ I would've quoted the fact you said you can send one Tyrogue egg over, not 2, but too tired to, XD

Going to continue to Bugsy probably Saturday, unless I feel up for doing things the next few days, which isn't normal, xD (Wed-Fri = Q_Q)

Also known as an update on my challenge.

-Went to Goldenrod Tunnel and found Lyra! Wow! It was only yesterday I saw her! No really. It was.
-Cleared the Goldenrod tunnel with relative ease and got TNTree to level 16.
-Got to the Radio Tower and chatted up talked to Whitney about this Radio card challenge. She was impressed by my intellect.
-Obtained the Radio Card! Which is...meh. Cool I guess. Whitney seemed to think so. Now THAT is cool.
-She returned to the gym and I stalked healed up and prepared to claim my third badge.
-Defeated all the trainer's with ease. Then I healed up and prepared to take on Whitney.

You know the deal. Read spoiler for battle :)

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/27/VSWhitney.png

Waaaaah! Waaaaah!...Snivel, hi....You meanie!

She decided to be a little ***** about losing, and I leave. Except I realise I havn't picked up what's rightfully mine. So I go back and demand a sammich the Plain Badge.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/27/VSWhitney.png

Sniff... What? What do you want? A Badge? Oh, right. I forgot. Here's the Plain Badge.

Aero recieved the Plain Badge!

The Plain Badge lets your Pokémon use Strength outside of battle. Oh, you can have this, too!

Aero obtained TM45! Aero put the TM45 in the TMs & HMs Pocket.

It's Attract! It makes full use of a Pokémon's charm. Isn't it just perfect for a cutie like me? That's right! I heard this thing called the Pokethlon Dome is now open right next to the National Park. You should go try it, since you're so good at battling with your Pokémon!

And that, was how I got the Plain Badge.



This battle was remarkably easy. It just goes to show how much you can love Female pokemon, like all mine are with the exception of Redemption.

-With my swanky new badge, I was able to get a SquirtBottle from next door, to get to Ecruteak City.
-Bought a load of TM's, yet to use xD I'm that cool :cool:
-Cleared the National Park of trainers. Yeahhhhhhhh boyeeee.

You probably won't hear from me for a while, I'm going to the Pokéthalon to get some evolution stones for my Pokémon, as well as grind a bit. I'll get right onto beating Morty ASAP.

I tried to get some proof I was playing. But alas, failed. :(

I'm going to have to get a better camera or start using an emulator. Video wasn't even adequate. This angers me :cer_pissed:

@Myzou, Good luck against Bugsy! :)

@amberfunk, I said this before, but congratulations :) and good luck with your Poison Monotype Challenge!

@twinsandvikes777, Good luck with your Fighting Monotype challenge! Any idea what you're going to evolve your Tyrogue into?

Even if you, twinsandwikes777, couldn't decide on Dragon, Electric or Fighting at first. That's right, I saw...

QUICK QUESTION EJ:

I'm soon to be getting an Eevee, am I allowed to trade to my Platinum game in order to evolve it into Leafeon or not?

Peace out guys ;)

I have started my poison challenge. I picked cyndaquil as a starter and started leveling him up so that he can evolve to be my hm slave. Ran the errand for Elm and battled my rival and named him with some japanese characters. Took the egg to Elm and left getting my poke balls from Ethan. I went out and caught a beautiful female spinarak and named it ariados in japanese. Leveled up Ariados a little bit and battled two trainers and by passed the rest. Got to Violet city and Ethan gave me the vs recorder. Then went to Sprout Tower and caught a male gastly and named it Ghost in japanese. Now I am leveling up Ariados and Ghost for the battle against Falkner.

Shiiittt, I realize that I'm failing on noticing some of your questions when I skim through. From now on if you have a question, just try make it very obvious like red font or something. OR, pm me.

Amber, yeah you can do two at once.
