Kudos to everyone with their updates! Oh man I'm a bit reluctant to start another HGSS right now, I'm having fun with Pearl. :D

Oh sorry, it's just that I posted twice before that I finished my steel challenge and I wasn't up there. I figured if I put in in red that you would see it.

If that's for you're solo run, you're certainly flying through it :P

If it's not, I might have a chance to catch you :P

You'd be pretty good at a speed run challenge ;)

Wait, there was a Bike Shop in Goldenrod?

-Saw Lance, and followed him.
-Continued through the Rocket Base, with Rocket Grunts telling me what to do so I can defeat more Rocket Grunt. Dummkopfs.
-Met up with Lance and found out that Petrel can deactivate these radio signals that are making the Gyarados STFURAAAEEEG.
-Wait, how does Lance go to places without being challenged by Rocket Grunts? Oh wait, his Pokemon were already beaten up.
-The female Rocket Grunt gave me one password. SLOWPOKETAIL.
-Another Rocket Grunt told me the other password. RATICATETAIL. What's with the fascination with tails?
-Saw and talked with Naoya. He told me about getting his @ss kicked by Lance. Heh. Maggot.
-Wait, that's Giova- NO. He doesn't talk like him. He's in a disguise! It's...
http://i46.tinypic.com/2q9a0hy.jpg

-Scarface happily 1HKO'd his Zubat with Wing Attack.
-Garmr 2HKO'd his Koffing with Bite.
-Gojira 1HKO'd his Raticate with Rock Slide.

http://i45.tinypic.com/1tu8v9.jpg
Hmph, what a joke. Petrel's a pretty cool guy, though.
http://i48.tinypic.com/a9qmv8.jpg
What? Which one? Oh, that on that Petrel was with. Wait, Murkrow can talk? Why can't Scarface repeat what I sa- Oh... Right. I never say anything.

-Gotta chase that Murkrow!
-This is one playful and helpful Murkrow.
-With the help of Murkrow, I opened the door to the radio transmitter room.
-I'm going to battle Ariana with... LANCE?!

http://i45.tinypic.com/2s1lq8y.jpg
-Dragonite 1HKO'd Drowzee with Fly.
-Dragonite 1HKO'd Arbok with Thunder.
-Dragonite 1HKO'd Grimer with Thunder.
-Dragonite 1HKO'd Ariana's Murkrow with Fly.
-Garmr 1HKO'd Gloom with Ember.
That... was easy thanks to Lance...

That radio transmission are controlled by balls. Electrode.

-Garmr, Gojira and Scarface managed to 1HKO the Electrode with their strongest neutral-effective attacks.

-Going in the Gym now.

-Fightin' Pryce!
http://i50.tinypic.com/2rlzv3p.jpg
-Scarface 2HKO'd Seel with Wing Attack, but not without going down to yellow health. Damn Ice moves.
-Gojira got KO'd by a single Aurora Beam from Dewgong. Damn!
-Garmr killed Dewgong by 4HKOing him while he was resting. He could Sleep Talk, but his attack weren't powerful enough to hit me for more than 21 health.
-Garmr got 2 Embers Piloswine, but got knocked out by Mud Bomb.
-Scarface, don't fail me now!
-A Crit Wing Attack KO'd Mamoswine! Yay!

Update: Ok, I whipped through Sprout Tower, leveling up BruceLEE and JackieCHAN up to lvl 11 along the way. I then easily defeated Falkner's lackeys, and, being overconfident and overzealous, got beatdown by Falkner spamming sand-attack :(
After grinding on awful Mareep's and the like, I got sick of it and took on Falkner once again. Surprisingly, I dominated him. (Sidenote: STAB'd Brick Break on a Tyrogue with an amazing attack stat: crushing! (Egg move))

It's not my solo run, I don't have the mood to start it yet. :D
Besides, Mawile's rather weak, that's why sometimes it's hard. (Especially HGSS which I really dare not try but well..)

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?



Well, I´m not EJ but i asked him the same question via PM, so i can answer with yes, you´re allowed to evolve Eevee on DPPt

I guess our final Teams will look pretty similar^^

Update is coming soon, since i had to replay through 3 Gyms first...

s-Left town so I can get my damn bike form Goldenrod. Nobody told me there was a Bike Shop there.
-Got my bike. Time to shake some Apricorns.
-Noticed that Raikou and Entei are registered in my map card. They're moving?
-This guy who sold me a RAGEEEECandyBar won't let me through. Time to explore.
-Off to Olivine!
-Arrived at Olivine City.
-Saw Silver and he told me about a sick Pokemon. He pushed me out of his way. I was on a bike, too. I wonder if there's a time in HG/SS where Silver can kick you while riding the bike...
-Got a Good Rod!
-It seems I need to Surf to get to Cianwood. Surfing is like being in a cave, but instead of fat hikers, you get swimmers and speedos. And female ones, too. :3. I still hate Surfing, though.
-Decided to go back to the Pokeathlon Dome so I can evolve Scarface. This will take a while...
-Finally got 3000P. Changed the date so I can get the Dusk Stone and evolved Scarface..
-Surfin' to Cianwood!
-Found the... Whirl Islands. Now where did I put that Flash TM... Oh wait, none of my Pokemon can learn Flash.
-Too dark, didn't explore.
-Arrived at Cianwood, and received Shuckie. I'll put him in my team beacause Shuckles are awesome and I want them to be in my team photos.
-Saw... Suicune?
-Wild Eusine appeared! He talked about how majestic Suicune is. Yeah, he's good for tanking stuff.
http://i45.tinypic.com/1256w5k.jpg
Um... Uhh... Nice... outfit. PHAHAHAHAHA
-Eusine switched out Drowzee and sent out Electrode. A Thunder failed to 1HKO Scarface and he proceeded to 2HKO Electrode with Assurance.
-Garmr 2HKO'd Haunter with Crit Bite.
-Gojira 1HKO'd Drowzee with Bite.

Never. Ever. EVER. Again. It took me an hour to grind Unown to Level 25 -.- Slowpoke just couldn't get enough power to take out Scyther without leveling up tremendously, and I need to evolve him into Slowking before level 29. XD And my victory was purely luck, even at level 25, Scyther can one shot Unown. XD It came down to luck with Scyther using Focus Energy then Quick Attack.

Anyway, here's my new update:

Unown has been boxed, probably the last you'll see of him, unless I choose to grind him for Claire, XD

Haha, yeah, I decided to ditch Tangrowth and use Leafeon instead. I'll have to find some other Rock/Electric/Ice move for flying types *hint hint Ludi,Loom,Turne,Masnow* :P Anyway, thanks for answering my question :) Didn't want to break rules whatnot O.o

Congratulations on beating Bugsy - he is annoying. Oh well, over and done with yes? :)

Ecruteak Gym Battle! Aero vs Morty!
Yes, another update on the Grass Monotype challenge!

First things first

-Got through National Park
-Cleared Route 36 with ease and got to the dancing tree.
-Which turned out to be a Sudowoodo. HOLY ****.
-It, being a Rock Type, died to Fairie's Bullet Seeds. Mwa ha ha!
-Cleared Route 37 with difficulty. Double battles are hard :(
-I managed to evolve my Fairie into, yes, a freakin' Jumpluff! :)
-Arrived at the stunning city of Ecruteak city. I like this city above the other's in Johto. I don't know why, I just do. Maybe because of the name?
-I found the designer of my beautiful PC boxes, Bill!
-He exclaimed I should meet him in Goldenrod, so I obliged.
-It turns out he wanted to give me an Eevee!
-I refused. Every single one. Until a rather Jolly fellow was offered to me, whom I accepted as my own. I shall call him Fennex, a cross over between what his evolved form, Leafeon, looks like, a Fennec fox. There is your trivia for the day.
-I decided to go back to Ecruteak, and get the party started from the left to right, then move my body and dance all night at the Kimono theatre!
-Of course...a Rocket Grunt is already stealing the show. Time to bust my moves!
-Naturally, I win. I'm in beast mode.
-I got HM03! But have no water Pokemon so...it's a waste. xD
-Levelling Fennex is hard. But going to be worth it! I hope.
-Went to the burned tower, and saw the Legendary Pokémon!
-Also I met a Suicune obsessed maniac.
-Also, I met Morty, who was chilling amongst Koffing.
-Taught Dig to Fennex.
-Caught a Koffing for future purposes :) Not for this Monotype challenge, for competitive.
-I also saw my rival, who gave me a battle. Jumpluff easily took care of Zubat and Quillava, Fennex walled Gastly and got a x4 hit on Magnemite. Easy peasy lemon squeasy.
-Cleared the trainers in the Burnt Tower with some difficulty.
-Released the Legendary Pokemon and was brought in for questioning by Eusine. Help me!
-Left burnt tower, assured Morty was waiting for me at the Ecruteak Gym.

Saved here.

I'm going to edit this post when I have defeated Morty, as well as update with latest team and badges.

Oh my gosh.. This took forever as I kept losing to Bugsy over and over/my pokemon had no moves that could hit the goddamn rivals Gastly! So I trained in Union Cave until level 31 O.o Yes, really. So that my Hitmonchan could learn.. The Elemental Punches :D I then proceeded to kick the crap out of both my rival and Bugsy and helped the Farfecht'd kid so I am on the way to Whitney!

I hate when gym leaders spam Sand-Attack. I didn't really find it a problem until I played Fire-Red for my solo run. The rival's Pidgeot just spams Sand Attack every time <_<

Well, figure it wouldn't hurt to get a second member of my team before I have to leave for the day :P

After I'm done with Whitney, I shall be catching Girafarig. Unfortunately, Xatu must come after Surf, and Jynx after I get to Ice Cave :S

http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/344/azgolteambuilding.png

And with that, Coir the Exeggcute joined the team. I nicknamed him Coir because that's the name of the thread/rope they make from Coconuts, which is what Exeggutor is based on, a coconut tree. XD Finding a MALE Exeggcute took forever ._.;;

I'm dreading Claire. XD Unlike Bug type, Dragons resist Psychic ._. Why does Jynx have to come AFTER Claire? XD

Update:
-Spent A LOT of time training Tentacool and Wooper until they were lv13
-Got through Union Cave easily with Wooper, Tentacool learned Acid so he can be kinda decent
-Grinded to lv16 and beat Bugsy after 2 tries (stupid Crit-Hax Scyther)-Beat Rival easily using Croconaw and Tentacool
-Got to Goldenrod, my mom bought me some Rindo and Wacan berries!!-Went fishing randomly, got a Poliwag, named it Epic Frog
-Threw Poliwag in the daycare until it was lv15
-Grinded entire team to lv20, Wooper evolved!!
-Beat Whitney after 3 tries. In the end, I just went and got the Roar TM for Croconaw and spammed Tentacool's Toxic Spikes. By this time, Tentacool also had Bubblebeam, so he was finally a great asset to the team.
-Got to Ecruteak, and began grinding on the way to Olivine, where I will catch my next team member, Lanturn. My last member will come when I get Surf. You'll just have to wait and see what it is. Anybody care to guess?
-Saved there.

If you're willing to spend time in the Safari zone, you can get a Riolu, Croagunk or Medicham for your team. Or camp out until after Elite 4 and get a Ralts in a swarm at Route 34.


At the moment, I'm grinding my team to take on Morty. I've also got stuff outside of Pokémon to take care off. Should have update + 4th badge by tonight.

I really should have quoted to make it obvious :P My bad.

EDIT: Actually I guess I'll go with Primeape.. I was trying to use someone not so mainstream but eh it isn't hard to train so I guess I'll be welcoming a new Mankey to my team soon! Also gotta train up my Heracross so goodbye 'til I get my 4th and 5th badges!

Update!

-Got the SecretPotion, and surfed back to Olivine. I hate Tentacool.

http://i50.tinypic.com/21nns0h.jpg
-Jammin' with Jasmine!
-Garmr 1HKO'd Magnemite with Fire Fang.
-Steelix got burned by a Fire Fang from Garmr. That should make things easier.
Mispredicted. Instead of switching Scarface in on a ground attack (which Steelix does not probably have), he got hit by a Rock Throw. Fortunately, it only took out 1/10th of Scarface's health. Wing Attack is incredibly weak against Steelix. Switched into Gojira when Steelix used Sandstorm.
-Noticed that Steelix is female O_O
-I hate leaders and their Hyper Potions. Jasmine used a Hyper Potion to heal that damn Steelix
-Steelix 1HKO'd Gojira with Iron Tail. Damn!
-Garmr finished Steelix off with a Fire Fang.
-Garmr 1HKO'd the other Magnemite with Fire Fang. Why didn't she have Magneton?
-Got the Mineral Badge!
http://i49.tinypic.com/6px7c7.jpg
Gojira is Lv. 34.

Are the Dark types or Dark-types-to-be, or the items needed to get them already available in the Safari Zone?
Gaaaah! Was I supposed to get Eevee from Bill?
-Got my damn Eevee. Now to level this boy. Wait, it's female! I always wanted a female Eevee.
-Named her Luna.
-Used Team Rocket Science to change Luna into a shiny Eevee.
-Went to Cianwood while levelling Luna.
-Beat all the Black Belts and...

http://i47.tinypic.com/2vn0w12.jpg
-A CLASH WITH CHUCK!

-Switched out Luna and sent in Scarface. Yay for Exp.
-I hate that damn Primape's Double Team. After missing four times in a row, I finally hit him.
-Poliwrath 1HKO'd Gojira after Thrash Confusion damage. Damn Hyper Potions.
-Scarface 1HKO'd Poliwrath with Wing Attack.
-Win.

Update- At burned tower now battling my rival. Caught a koffing and changed my mind about wanting it in my party. I'm happy with just Asuka and Kael. Going to defeat Morty next.

Actually I kind of want koffing in my party. I think I'll go to the pokeathalon and get some rare candy to help level up koffing. Here I go to train my koffing that I named Naoko, she's a girl.

too late... evolved it to Leafeon first to have it learn Razor Leaf. Afterwards it seems to be not my best decision.


Here´s Flowers Journey Diary, Part IV

I organized the Squirtbottle and destroyed Sudowoodoo. I walked to Ecruteak and meet this cool dude Bill in the Pokecenter. I visited him in Crybaby town and he gave me an Eevee, i named it Gideon. I called a friend if he could evolve it for me. Five minutes later, I had a Leafeon in my hands. I went back a took a look inside the bourned Tower. I found Morty, the Gym leader, Eusine...he´s possesed by Suicune and of course my Rival.
My rival was not a Real match, though none of my attacks were effective against his Pokemon. Again his Quilava didn´t use any Fire Moves. Later on I entered the gym and defeated the trainers. Then there was only Morty left. This battle was sooo annoying...I tried about five times...and each time his Gengar kicked me out. I levelled my Pokemon up to lv 32 and let Bloom evolve. with Bloom fully evolved i finally won thanks to a Petal Dance.
With my new Badge in the Pocket i went to Olivine. before i could enter the Gym my Rival blocked the the way and told me that the gym leader was caring for a sick Pokemon on top of the lighthouse. So i had to walk all the way to the top of the Lighthouse and beat all the trainers only to get another running errand...geez...so I got myself a good rod and fished a Goldeen as my swimming slave and started my trip to Cianwood. I got the medicine for Amphi and met Suicune. it is somehow interrested in me. Suicune ran awy and Eusine stood suddenly there...He wanted to battle me...My pokemon were like 10 lv. Stronger then his and he was no Problem.
Then I noticed the Gym of Cianwood and entered...Man Chuck and his fighting guys were wiped out by Owen´s Confusion. I left got my fourth Badge and left the Gym as Chuck´s wife talked to me. She gave me HM Fly. Very Great if you have nothing to fly...i´m off to the Lighthouse.

-Evolved Luna into an Umbreon at around Lv. 20. YAY SOOTHE BELLS!
-Entered the Safari Zone and got myself a damn Geodude. That's all I got. Wobbuffet, Magneton and Onix are seemingly uncatchable D:<
-Finally caught myself an Onix, a Kanghaskan, a Magneton, an Arbok, a Weezing and a Wobbuffett.
-Entered the Safari Zone again to get myself a Nidoran(m) and a Magmar. (and a Lickitung)
-Flew to Goldenrod and got my Rocket Disguise. Is there an AR code to change my sprite into Ethan disguised as a Grunt?
-Damn, Silver ruined my disguise.
-Grinded Luna to Level 34 with a lot of battles in the wild.
-Re-entered the Radio Tower.
-Used my Team Rocket Science to make Luna learn Curse. She needs it to actually hurt anything. If this isn't allowed, I'll remove it.
-Talked to the Director who was actually...
http://i49.tinypic.com/2aifodj.jpg
I seriously didn't think he was Petrel...
-Gojira 1HKO'd Koffing with a Dragon Dance boosted Rock Slide.
-Weezing's Explosion 1HKO'd Luna after a fairly long fight.
-Revived Luna.
-Luna KO'd two Koffings with a few Faint Attacks.
-Scarface 1HKO'd another Koffing with Fly.
Yay!

-Got the Basement Key and went to the basement.
-Saw another Kimono who told me something about being able to battle the Legendary Pokemo. Yeah. I love Pokemoes.
-Got into a...
http://i47.tinypic.com/2kk8xl.jpg
RIVAL RUMBLE!
-Garmr 2HKO'd Golbat with Fire Fang.
-Garmr 1HKO'd Magnemite with Fire Fang.
-Scarface 2HKO'D Meganium with Wing Attack.
-Gojira 1HKO'd Sneasel with Rock Slide.
-Garmr 1HKO'd Haunter with Bite.

What a noob. Evolve your Magnemite, Sneasel and Golbat first. Also, take care of your Golbat so it freaking evolves into the awesome Crobat.

-Beat up more Rocket Grunts and rescued the princess Director. He gave me his Key Card.
-Prepared for a battle with Proton.

Time to punt...
http://i47.tinypic.com/o0vx4g.jpg
Proton's @ss!

-Scarface 1HKO'd Golbat with Fly.
-Luna defeated Weezing after a few +3 Cursed Faint Attacks and Confusion Damage.

-Went up the stairs and...
http://i49.tinypic.com/30ux0t0.jpg
... encountered Ariana!
-Gojira 1HKO'd Arbok after a +1 Dragon Dance boosted Rock Slide.
-Garmr 2HKO'd Vileplume with Fire Fang.
-Scarface showed Murkrow who's the boss with one Wing Attack.

Went to the Observation deck and...
http://i47.tinypic.com/2qi770j.jpg
... attacked Archer!
-Garmr pwned Houndour with a single Headbutt.
-Like what Luna always does, she fainted Koffing with a +1 Cursed Faint Attack!
-Garmr showed Houndoom who the Alpha Male is with a few Headbutts!

Wait, Archer's just going to disband Rocket there? I only fought the guy once!
What a joke.

-Went to Mahogany Town so I can travel to Blackthorn.
-Went through Ice Cave. That was ice-cold Hel for me since I don't like those ice puzzles.
-Arrived at Blackthorn, bought some rations and entered the Gym.
-Beat up the trainers. The puzzle is fun, too.

http://i50.tinypic.com/vr8ntj.jpg
-After a few Curses and MooMoo Milk (I hate Dragon Rage), I managed to KO Gyarados with two boosted Paybacks
-Scarface 2HKO'd a Dragonair with Fly and Assurance.
-Garmr 2HKO'd another Dragonair with Bite, but got Paralyzed.
-Kingdra was hard. I really hate SmokeScreen. AND HER HYDRO PUMP HAS 100% ACCURACY. Good thing Luna can wall her pretty well. Kingdra made a wrong move and her Hydro Pump hit at the wrong time. A 100 Base Power (+50 STAB) Payback KO'd it after about 4 Faint Attacks.

-Defeat Clair! But... NO RISING BADGE? I hate you, Clair.
-Entered the Dragon's Cave (spelling?), and entered the Shrine. Answered some questions, and Clair couldn't believe I passed. What a prick. Anyways, I got the Rising Badge. Time for the Pokemon League... after a lot of grinding. It's Lugia's turn now.
-Got the Master Ball.
-Met Naoya... He doesn't seem as arrogant as the last times I talked with him... The Kimono Girls have powerful Pokemon, huh? ...
-Beat them all thanks to Gojira and Scarface, got the Tidal Bell.
-Had a bit of trouble navigating to the right Whirl Island. Marriland led me to the right path.
-After a really cool dance...
http://i45.tinypic.com/2dtqk3l.jpg
This is some epic battle music here.
-That was... um... Pretty fast. Thanks to a Crit Bite from Garmr, Lugia went down to yellow health, and with two Headbutts, to red health. Time to catch thi- Oh wait...
-Of course. What I always happen to do... I forget to buy a sh**load of balls. Let's try our luck...
-After 4 Ultra Balls, 3 Revives, 6 more Ultra Balls, 1 Max Revive, 4 Max Potions, 5 Poke Balls, 2 bottles of MooMoo Milk and 1 Fast Ball later...

okay so i finished goldenrod got the squirt bottle killed sudowoodo and then reached Ecruteak town. Met a guy named Eusine helped him and versed my rival who was killed easily. Went to the gym killed everyone and versed morty with level 24's. This is when i realized u should train even when u have the upper hand. His gengar started spamming shadowballs and wiped my whole team. I then realized i should train my pokes right now im just wild pokemon training these guys to a maybe level 27/28 to outspeed his gengar or atleast some of his pokemon.

-Luna gets a +2 Curse Boost while walling Ariados.

July 2nd, 2010, 02:29 PM
@Dr. Fautus- I don't believe hacking your umbreon to learn curse is allowed. I'm almost positive that it is in the rules that you cannot cheat or hack your pokemon is anyway.

Update: Defeated Morty with Asuka after his gengar took down Kael. Decided not to use koffing and just use Asuka and Kael. Currently on my way to Olivine Lighthouse and battling trainers along the way.

Yep just read the rules and it says no cheating or hacking. Umbreon does not learn curse in any way. I think you should have to start your challenge over because having curse on your umbreon sounds like it has made the challenge easier for you. It's not fair to everyone else.

Oh, and amberfunk, Umbreon learns Curse as an Eevee. It's an egg move.

I hear you, I hear you. My save file got deleted by my bro and...yeah. All that work-POOF! Gone. Disappeared.

Btw, this is Corruptodile's new account - explains why my names not on the challengers list.

Put a hurtin on TR and freed the Director, got the Rainbow Wing, etc etc. Made it through Ice Path (after about an hour T_T) and saved in front of Clair's gym. I was too tired to actually challenge it.

I decided that it was not time to fight morty yet
So i continued my journey made my way to Olivine City
Got myself a good Rod
Went all the way back to New Bark Town
Fished for what seemed like an eternity
Caught a shellder and nicknamed it Spike
and then a tentacool and nicknamed it stingray
then went back to route 38 and trained for at least 15 hours (felt like it at least) (im sick so i had no work so i played all day)
Finally decided it was time to fight Morty and it was easy
participated at the pokedome till i got enough points for a water stone
Evolved Spike
Made my way up the light house and talked to jasmine

Okay, so I purchased SoulSilver just yesterday, and I began what was to become a very long endeavor, for yesterday, I have begun my first (and certainly not the last) Monotype challenge. I'm unable to produce screenshots, as I'm not playing an emulated version, so instead I'll be narrating through this. :3

FIRST UPDATE- JULY 2nd/July 3rd

As I departed from my house in New Bark Town, I headed directly to Professor Elm's laboratory where I obtained my first Pokémon- a healthy and oh, so adorable Totodile which I nicknamed Chomper. I had to admit, I was a little sad that I wouldn't really be using the cute little guy all that much, but since he had a Docile nature I quickly shrugged it off and began my journey.

I completed all the tutorial nonsense and fought my jerk of a rival (who I named Silver as I always do- Silver's just a badass name) and ventured off towards Violet City. On the way there, I caught a little Sentret who I named Watcher. I checked my Pokéwalker, and from that neat little gadget I obtained a Kangaskhan and a Pidgey. I endured Joey's pestering phone calls about his Rattata and ventured into Dark Cave, where I was hell-bent on finding myself a Dunsparce. By the time I finally found one, Watcher critted the thing and I lost my chance.

Finally making it to Violet City, I pushed through the Sages inside the Sprout Tower and got the Flash TM, then got the "make-'em-faint" Rock Smash HM from the man outside of the city. (Boy, if only that phrase about Rock Smash was true.) Seeing as how my Kangaskhan was at a much higher level than the rest of my team (and I was feeling overconfident at the time) I stormed my way into the Violet City Gym, tearing through both of the Bird Keepers that stood in my way. Falkner, on the other hand, was much tougher than I expected. His Pidgeotto tore through my other 3 Pokémon without even batting a feather, so it was up to Kangaskhan to save the day. And save the day she did, earning me a Zephyr Badge and the Roost TM.

I got a call from Professor Elm asking me to hold a suspicious egg given to me. I figured, "Why not? I've already gotten the team I need, so I can hold onto a spare passenger. The egg stays with me!", and I took the little egg under my wing. I also decided to head back into Dark Cave to test out that Rock Smash HM I taught Kangaskhan. Sure enough, what was hiding under the rock I smashed proved to be the best thing out of this adventure yet- a Dunsparce!

-Luna 2HKO'd Venomoth with non-boosted Paybacks.
-Luna 2HKO'd Weezing with a boosted Payback and Quick Attack
Got the Soul Badge! Hm... I always thought the Marsh Badge would be more fitting for this gym, and the Soul Badge for Sabrina's gym...

Strangely... Joey has only called thrice during this challenge...

OH CRAP. I noticed that I evolved Scarface BEFORE getting the National Dex. I didn't realize that there are no Dusk Stones before the E4 because I didn't check (I earned 3000P but didn't look at the the store).

Does this mean I have to start the challenge over? D:

Nice updates, challengers.

It´s time for:

Flowers Journey Diary, Part V

Well...I left for Olivine to hand over the Secret Potion. Afterwards Yasmine had finally time to battle me. I taught Gideon how to use Dig and challenged Yasmine. The Magnemites were not worth mentioning and her Steelix was finished after 3 Digs. With my sixth badge I caught a pidget for fly-reasons and stored it in my box. I went to Mahogany only to see that another Gym is closed at the moment. somehow i get the feeling that i´m responsible for solving all of Jofto´s Problems...sigh...frustrated, i walked north to the Sea of Rage.
Whoa...A Red Gyarados...Argh..it´s no Grass-type, so i defeated it.
Suddenly this guy named Lance (while he spoke i got the felling he likes to hear his voice) stood at the Lakefront with a Dragonite. He wants my help dealing with Team Rocket...Again Johto´s Problem on my shoulder...Lance didn´t accept a no, so he kinda forced me, a kid to fight with criminals...great idol...
well...the Grunt were no problem, Cause Owen crushed through their Poison Pokemon...The battle with Lance on my side was also boring...But one thing confused me...How the F*** did he get a lv. 40 Dragonite...I guess Lance Is a cheater or he isn´t better than Team Rocket forcing his Pokemon to Evolution.
Anyway Pryce was my next Target and that Ice Gym was easier than expected...Somehow I thought Grass wasn´t evective against Ice but it´s normal damage. I just had to care for his attacks. Pryce is finished and I sense the next Problem of Johto coming towards me...

I beatdown the E4 after taking out Clair and Victory Road/Fyre. JackieCHAN was easily the MVP as he soloed both Karen and Lance!!! His elemental punches were the key to me dominating the E4. I'll upload a pic soon. But anyhoo I made it to Vermilion and Muscle soloed the gym with his Earthquake. That's all for now, update later prob.

Congrat's on beating the E4 ;)

On an irrevelant note, The Kanto gym leaders theme has to be one of my favourite themes throughout every game. Of course my favourite theme is still the route 38/39 theme from G/S/C and HG/SS :)

THIS IS A MAJOR UPDATE: i will make it short so dont worry. ill start form where i left off in my last update. so after losing to morty i trained my pokes to level 26 where carvanha and murkrow got a reliable dark type move assurance. This time i beat him barely losing any health. I then went to mahogany first seeing Pryce as the most easiet to beat. Go there to lake of rage help lance beat team rocket blah blah blah and MOST importantly my larvitar and carvanha evolve! yay!!! So then i go to the gym kill trainers easily with pupitar and then verse pryce and he wasnt too hard and i managed to get 5th badge! Next i head over to Olivine city to verse Jasmine. Go to lighthouse realize i need the secretpotion to heal that ampharos so i go to cianwood beat trainers on the way then get the potion she heals that ampharos and its time verse jasmine. So the battle was EASY prolly the most easiest gym i versed my sharpedos surf 1HKO's his whole team. Anyways get the mineral badge head off to cianwood and verse chuck who gets killed by my murkrows wing attack, the only trouble here though was his primapes rock slide it almost killed me but i still managed. Next i go to goldenrod finish team rocket for good and head to ice path finish that and finally reach Blackthorn city!!!!!!!!! Okay i have to admit Claire was pretty tough her Kingdra pretty much killed my whole team with that hydro pump of hers and it never missed tooo!! After losing twice to her i managed to pull through and won me my 8th badge!!!!!!!

Just defeated Whitney... XD Clefairy fell quite easily to Queenie thanks to Yawn and Confusion, :P

Miltank... 15 Super Potions Later, she was defeated. XD Freakin Attract Hax made me unable to move for most the fight -.- Finally managed to put her to Sleep with Hypnosis, then Leech Seed Her. After that, it was pretty easy to stall while Leech Seed did it's thing. Then I switched to Queenie and killed her with Confusion a few turns later. :3 Obviously, Psychic types like to tip cows. :3

Anyway, won't post the photo update yet. Still need to evolve Queenie to Slowking and catch a Girafarig (if Emoxy was telling the truth, that is :P)

Pretty small update :3

Decided to take on Whitney without going through the trainers on the way to National Park, which I almost always do in a playthrough, XD As posted above, Miltank gave me quite a few issues, but she soon fell. I made my way to Ecruteak, where I immediately took a right, went through the Mountain, and north of Mahogany to find my 3rd pokemon...

http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3391/goldenrod.png

His Nickname (Drome) is obviously part of Palindrome, which is what Girafarig is :P I almost went with Dromemord, but decided not to, XD

Just beat Morty on my second try thanks to Heracross's Shadow Claw and Ariados's Shadow Sneak. My pokemon were all about lvl 20, so I think I'm going to get them all to at least lvl 28 before taking on Chuck.

And I'll evolve Coir at 47, so he gets Psychic and Leaf Storm.

Debating between Hypnosis and Poison powder for his 4th move... Leech Seed is definitely the third.

Getting said Leaf Stone before then is the challenge, looks like Pokeathlon is my only choice... XD

You could get the Picnicker's number; forgot her name, she's below the day-care at the no-grass section surrounded by grasses. She'll give a Leaf Stone.

@ Becki-you get eevee as a gift from bill in goldenrod then you can trade it over to d/p/pt to evolve it.

Update:
I finally cleared out the radio tower. I then battled the three sisters on the beach by Goldenrod. Now I'm on my way to defeat Clair.

Whohoo, time for Flowers Journey Diary, Part VI

Just as i left the Mahogany gym i got a call from Elm...I said there will be the next problem for me to solve...so i walked to Golden Rod and threw Team Rocket out of the Radio Tower. those Grunts and their executives were not really a match for me...My Rival wasn´t a real challenge either...sigh...
After everything was safe in Golden Rod I head for Ice Cave, Blackthorn and my eight Badge. Before entering the Gym I trained Lill and Owen and let them evolve. I taught Sludge Bomb to Lill. Owen´s Psychic and Lill´s Sludge Bomb made the Gym feel like a walk in the park...
With my eight Bagde i got a master ball from Elm and an invitation from zhe Kimono Girls...their Espeon and their Flareon were a bit hard to defeat but i made it. Then THey told me that Ho-oh is waiting for me on the Bell Tower.
Up there I fought with Ho-oh. I had to made him faint cause otherwise it would have defeated me...
Finally I went to the victory Road were i met my Rival again. This time his Typhlosion used lavaplume and gave me a hard battle...but with some Revives i eventually defeated him...Ineed I bit of training before I´ll enter the E4

My Team:

Edit:

Flowers Journey Diary, Part VII: The Johto Elite 4

trained until my Pokemon reached lv. 50. Bloom learned Earthquake and Gideon forgot Strenght and learned Iron Tail.
defeated Will. His Xatus and his Jynx were quite hard foes but after some Iron Tails they fainted. Slowbro took two Leaf Blades from Lill and fainted, while Exeggutor was OHKOed by a Sludge Bomb.

Koga was rather easy, except his Forretress...man...7 Earthquake were required to finish this. Ariados and Crobat faint because of an Confusion, Muk and Venomoth were OHKOed by Psychics.

Bruno has now respect for Psychic pokemon. Exeggutor crushed through his Team...Machamp was the only Pokemon from him that could stand on his feet after a Psychic. Karen´s next:D

Karen was annoying...especially her Umbreon...I didn´t count the used Attacks but it fainted finally to a critical Leaf Blade (damn i love this Move).
Murkrow = OHKO Sludge Bomb
Houndoom = OHKO Eartquake (Bloom Outsped Houndoom^^)
Vileplume and Gengar = both OHKO by Psychic

Lance:
Gyarados = 2HKO with Leaf Blade
Charizard= very Hard...had to use several Revives and Potions. It finally fainted due to two Psychics
first Dragonite lv 49 = Those Blizzards hit me...that hurts...Bloom could survive Blizzard so i used her until Dragonite had no Blizzards left and healed after every attack. then i switched to Gideon who did the rest with Iron Tail
Aerodactyl = Gideon took an Aerial Ace, survived and countered with an Iron Tail. OHKO
lv 50 Dragonite = uhm...Fire Blasts hurt too, same Strategie as above.
lv 49 Dragonite = This Dragonite was rather easy compared with th other ones. Owen used two Psychics and it was over.

I never used so much heal items before...my poor money went down the river...but half of the Challenge is done by now and the Safari Zone is waiting for me

MAJOR UPDATE: well im now the officil pokemon league champion!! muahahaha!! anyways after my 8th badge went to professors place aand got a masterball. Went to ecruteak to verse kimono girls not to hard i have to admit having taunt on my murkrow worked wonders against the umbreon the only real challenge that and the vaporeon. Next went to bell tower and killed ho-oh. Then went through new bark to victory road killing trainers blah blah blah and then met my rival at the end beat him to a pulp and then continued to pokemon leuge!!

WILL

Xatu - started with sharpedo one crunch he dies
Exeggutor- Switched to murkrow taunted it, fell for it by using hypnosis one faint attack crits it
Jynx - Switch to sharpedo crit it with a crunch
Slowbro- Switch to pupitar use crunch i think and kill it
Xatu - Switch back to sharpedo and crunch it

MVP: Sharpedo was easily the mvp against will OHKOing almost his whole team and could have have done it if he wanted to.

Koga

Ariados - pupitar uses rock slide gets a lucky crit

Forretress - i know this is bad it practically walls me but i switched to murkrow. SPAM as many taunts and flys possible soon he gets soo fed up he uses explosion while im in the air(for fly) lol that was probably his hardest to kill

Muk - Switch to pupitar and use a x attack and then 2HKO his muk after plenty of damage from crunch lowering his defense. Oh ya btw he used 6 minimizes and i never missed an attack on him, not even rock slide XD!

Crobat- Seeing as i have an x attack i see no point of switching I USE A ROCK SLIDE AND GET PROBABLY THE MOST LUCKIEST CRIT EVER i OHKOed it!!!!!!!!

Venomoth - rock slide nuff said

MVP: Pupitar for sure, took out most of kogas top guns

BRUNO

hitmontop - use faint attack while he uses counter then fly to kill it.

hitmon chan- fly gets a crit

onix - Sharpedo + Surf = OHKO

machamp - sharpedo uses surf to take it at around 35% and then sacrifices himself so murkrow can finish him off

Hitmonlee - kills him self with hi-jump kicks missing lol

MVP: Most definately murkrow helped take out our whole teams wall (Machamp)

KAREN

Umbreon - murkrow spams as many taunts and flys as possible

Houndoom - sharpedo kills it with surf, actually it was a crit lol

Gengar - Murkrow sucker punches it and then faint attacks but it used destiny bond so we both die

Vileplume - Sharpedo ice fangs it

Murkrow- Pupitar rock slides it

MVP: id say there are 2 murkrow and sharpedo each did something to win

LANCE

on a side note this was the most difficult balttle ever had to give pupitar a choice scarf and sharpedo a muscle band to win it also it took me prolly 25 restarts to win :S

Gyrados: Pupitar rock slides it with a crit

Dragonite(49) : pupitar rock slides to half uses dragon rush misses finish it off with rock slide

Dragonite(49): Sharpedo ice fangs it while it uses full restores and misses with dragon rush

Dragonite(50): Sharpedo ice fangs it to yellow b4 dieing and i let pupitar kill it

Aerodactyl: Sucker punches till yellow and then pupitar finishes it with rock slide

Charizard: ROck slide btw before i couldve won earlier but against his charizard i missed 2 Rock slides!

MVP: PUPITAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Next went proffesors got a s.s ticket went to olivine find mr. oak who gives me a national dex next go to pokeathelon and buy a dusk stone to evolve my murkrow who also learns night slash. Now im at safari zone waiting for baoba to call me for his second challenge and then catch my 2 next members of my team: A houndoom and nuzleaf( shiftry )

@dr faustus- I was going to use nidoking since he's one of my favorites but I got too attached to training just the Asuka and Kael so I decided to just have those two. I was also going to have weezing but the koffing I caught aggravated me so I ditched that one too.

Update:
I went to Kanto and defeated Surge, Sabrina, Erika and then went to restore the power at the power plant. Then I defeated Janine then made Misty go back to the gym and defeated her in two minutes ( I turned off the battle scene so the battles went way faster). I got the radio card and now I'm on my way to defeat snorlax and then Brock.

Flowers Journey Diary, Part VIII

After my glorious victory versus Lance, Prof Elm gave me a ticket for the ship. I head for Olivine haven and met Prof Oak. He updated my Pokedex, then Baoba called and told me about his newest developments.
I went to the Battle frontier because I want my Bloom to learn Outrage...
spent several ours there...need still more BP.
But i made a break cause Baoba called twice and told me there were new Objects in the Safari Zone. I went there, placed some plains objects inthe Wetlands and 28 forest objects in the Meadow areas to catch a Nuzleaf and Lombre.
Afterwards I entered the Pokeathlon, the shop let me buy a Water Stone. I entered the Bug Contest afterwards hoping to win a Leaf Stone but i got a Fire Stone...very Useful for Grass Types...
Because i had nothing to do I played Voltorb Flip for some two hours or so and won 10034 Coins. I wanted a Tm Ice Beam.
Thats it for now...i´m back in the Battle Frontier.

Scarface @ Muscle Band
Challenged PKMN Trainer [I think it should be master lol] Red!

-Gojira surprisingly 1HKO'd Pikachu with Rock Slide. Must be his Pikachu's crappy defenses.
-After flinching Blastoise once, Blastoise 2HKO's Gojira with Focus Blast and Flash Cannon.
-Hydro Cannon fails to 1HKO Luna and she finishes off Blastoise with Faint Attack after Sandstorm damage.
-Switched into Gojira to revive Gojira, and is 1HKO;d by Crunch.
-Snorlax deals laughable damage to Gojira with Blizzard. Lol. Gojira finishes him off after a few Crunches.
-Gojira Crunches Lapras twice before getting 2HKO'd by Brine.
-PKMN Trainer Red used Full Restore! FFUUUUUUUU
-Scarface avoids a Blizzard and 3HKO's Lapras with Night Slash and Sandstorm damage.
-I send in Mamaru to Revive Gojira and gets 1HKO'd by Dragon Pulse.
-Gojira 1HKO'd Charizard with Rock Slide.
-Venusaur and Gojira wall each other due to Giga Drain (benefiting Red) and Sandstorm (benefiting me)
-Gojira gets Sleep Powder'd, but I used a Chesto Berry to wake him up. He got Giga Drained again, though.
-Gojira hits Venusaur with Rock Slide, and Venusaur's attack misses (I didn't see which).
-Gojira almost KO's Venusaur, but Red uses a Full Restore. HOW MANY HEALING ITEMS DOES THIS GUY HAVE?!
-Gojira commits suicide with Struggle.

Oh man, this is gonna be a massive update. I haven't had internet for 2 whole days so I've had plenty of time to progress through SoulSilver with my awesome normal team. :P

Anyways, onward! No massive walls of text, just what I've written down in my log.

UPDATES 2 through 5: Spanning from July 5th (probably) to July 8th
(This is where Update 2 would have started)


Cut through Union Cave, made it to Azalea Town
Kicked Team Rocket out of the Slowpoke Well
Fought Bugsy, cost me 3 resets and 1 blackout

Oh, boy, what can I say about Bugsy that isn't the words "I never want to see another Scyther again"? Ironically, Bugsy is the only Gym Leader who's caused me problems so far, the others have been a walk in the park. xD


Traveled to Goldenrod
Fought Whitney, cost me 0 resets/blackouts

This was an interesting one. Whitney's Miltank clashed with Shakey Snake in an epic stall-out battle that kept going on for a good 10-20 minutes or so.

(this is where Update 2 would have ended and where Update 3 would start)


Delievered Kenya the Spearow to that fat guy on Route 31, got the Rest TM
Fought and caught Sudowoodo, obviously put him in the PC, got the Berry Pots and the Apriblender
Caught Deereisen the female Stantler (another clever, if not fairly obvious portmanteau)
Made it to Ecruteak City

After a lot of time spent Headbutting trees, I finally found myself an Aipom, and I named her Handy. :3


Got the Surf and Strength TMs
Caught Caesar the male Meowth, put Caesar in the PC

(this is where Update 3 would have ended and where Update 4 would start)


Fought Silver at the Burned Tower, met Eusine who did nothing of importance to the plot
Fought Morty, cost me 0 resets/blackouts

This was another fun one. :D Flip, who had evolved into a Pidgeotto at this point, wins the MVP for KO'ing Morty's over-leveled Gengar with a combination of whittling down its HP with Gust and major Sand-Attack spam. He proved himself to be quite useful despite his disadvantage. >:3


Surfed to Mahogany Town
Caught Cinnamon the female Girafarig
Plowed through the trainers in the Lighthouse
Put Flip in the PC
Surfed to Cianwood City, fought nearly all the trainers on the routes there getting Cinnamon's level up
Put Flip in the PC
Fought Eusine again and once again did nothing of importance to the plot (Seriously, why the hell is he in the game again? He's really unimportant -.-)
Fought Chuck, cost me 0 resets/blackouts

This was another fun one, and was basically fought by using Cinnamon until she was KO'd by Chuck's Poliwrath. After which I let Mother Hen take over. It was quite amusing watching him use Focus Punch after Focus Punch only to get hit and have its focus lost. I still wish TM01 was Dynamicpunch. ;_;

(this is where Update 4 would have ended and where Update 5 would start)


Flew back to Mahogany Town, did the entire Team Rocket Sidequest

I Caught two Electrodes inside the HQ, and named them Bap-Zoom and Zoom-Bap (I have two Electrodes on my HeartGold cartridge named Zap-Boom and Boom-Zap, I thought it was funny at the time :P), I obviously I put them in the PC. I also caught the Red Gyarados and named him Girugados (Another obvious portmanteau)

Flew back to Olivine City
Fought Jasmine, cost me 0 resets/blackouts

Okay, I REALLY liked this match. Handy took out her two Magnemites using Dig. Her Steelix caused problems in the beginning, but Handy's multiple Screeches combined with Shakey Snake's Rock Smash and tank stalling proved to be successful, and earned them both the MVP this time around. :D


Flew back (again) to Mahogany Town
Beat Pryce, cost me 0 resets/blackouts

Things got interesting when I fought Pryce. His Dewgong continued to be a problem with its Rest spam, but once it ran out of Sleep Talks it was easy prey. >:3 The real problem this time around was his Piloswine, surprisingly. Blizzard spam is not fun. =.= Of course, after he ran out of Blizzards, he was slightly easier, but still a pain. Mother Hen wins the MVP this time, but I used up nearly ALL of my Lemonades and Revives. :I


Flew back to Goldenrod
Kicked Team Rocket out for good >:3

That's all this time. Here's my current SoulSilver team:

Now, I'm debating this and I need some help- Which Pokémon should I get to fill in the 6th slot? I was thinking of waiting until I get to Blackthorn City to get a Teddiursa so I can evolve it into an Ursaring, but then again, I do have the Miltank, Togepi and Meowth sitting in my PC just waiting to be used. And there's also the chance of me finding a Snubbull nearby Ecruteak City. There's just so many choices... @_@

Which should I go for? I'm personally leaning towards Teddiursa, but I need a few other opinions before I finalize. :P

Anyway, time to grind for Clair.

.EJ
July 8th, 2010, 09:26 PM
Your best bet is to get Miltank or wait for Teddiursa. That chance of finding a snubbull is very slim. (1%) I caught mine after like two hours. Frikkin' annoying =/

amberfunk
July 8th, 2010, 09:44 PM
I just defeated red. I have completed my poison monotype challenge.

My final team:

Kael lv80
Hypnosis
Nightmare
Curse
Dark pulse

Asuka lv79
Poison jab
Psychic
Bug bite
Night shade

Curse tended to be a very useful move. This challenge was the first time since pokemon came out that I've used it.

Also EJ I'd like to start a normal type challenge now with soulsilver. Everyone is making it sound like a lot of fun.

NecroFlame
July 9th, 2010, 01:58 AM
@ Skie - I think you should get Togepi into Togekiss, as he is an amazing special sweeper.

I will soon begin this challenge, might be a part of my Ultimate Ice Monotype, unless I decide to do this on a different type. I'll post here again when I actually start this off.

Ok I admit I haven't been here for some time, I probably won't be around soon as school activities are starting (you know.. html php sql + dance + singing) and this makes me super busy. I'm really sorry.

Now, I'm debating this and I need some help- Which Pokémon should I get to fill in the 6th slot? I was thinking of waiting until I get to Blackthorn City to get a Teddiursa so I can evolve it into an Ursaring, but then again, I do have the Miltank, Togepi and Meowth sitting in my PC just waiting to be used.

Which should I go for? I'm personally leaning towards Teddiursa, but I need a few other opinions before I finalize. :P









I reckon you should go for something utilizing Special Attack, since four of your members are attacking pokemon. (Togekiss' not bad.. but I have a thing against it)
Your Kangaskhan has a bad nature :(
Might want Headbutt on Dunsparce.

Strongly suggesting putting a (future) Rock/Ice attack on your team.

Normal is a fun type. I'll add you once I'm on my laptop.

+1

SkieTheKitsune
July 9th, 2010, 09:45 AM
Yeah, I know, my Kangaskhan has a bad nature, I was a bit disappointed myself. But I did get it out of the Pokéwalker so you never really know what the natures will be anyway, I'm not all that worried. :P

I will put some kind of Rock/Ice move soon. I tried Rock Tomb for Shakey Snake but that didn't really work out all that well, low PP and whatnot. I'll be trying to get Earthquake, that's something I want.

Also, I figured I wouldn't be able to find a Snubbull any time soon. I was kinda hoping to get a Granbull but I guess I'll have to wait. =/ I think I'll use Togekiss for Kanto, though. I'll try to have a semi-different team, but I'll keep like 2/3 members of my previous team. That'll be for a later update, though- right now I'll continue grinding for Clair and catch a Teddiursa when I'm able.

I think when I'm done with this I'll do Ground or Water next. Just a thought. :3

Recently, I beat Pryce and just finished the first half of the Radio Tower. Heracross is proving to be extremely useful.

*Oh, and, EJ, I'm still not on the list for Bug. Thx. :)

SkieTheKitsune
July 9th, 2010, 11:10 AM
At this point, I wouldn't mind another physical attacker. Only 2 of my Pokémon are really suited in that area. This is how I see it depending on stat arrangements and natures:

Mother Hen- Physical
Shakey Snake- Tank
Deereisen- Physical
Handy- Speed Support (with those Screeches)
Cinnamon- Special

Having another Physical would balance things out, as far as I'm concerned. Hell, even another Special attacker would work well. :3

July 9th, 2010, 03:08 PM
I started my normal type challenge. I picked totodile as my starter. Got the mystery egg and brought it to elm. I just caught a rattata that I named Bella and she has a hasty nature. I also caught a hoothoot that I named Owl with pretty good ivs and he has a sassy nature.

.EJ

^Lol you're doing exactly what I did.

My raticate is jolly and my noctowl is naive.

Ok so I busted my butt and got the final four gym badges, then, in a burst of overconfidence, headed up Mt. Silver and fought Red. I think you can guess what happened next. I didn't even land one single goddamn hit on his Pikachu. WTF!?!? So after getting my butt handed to me I went and challenged the new E4. And promptly got booted out after taking out Will. Soooo.. looks like I won't post for a while considering I'll be doing some SERIOUS GRINDAN!!! Oh, btw my team is a level 69 Machamp, level 68 Heracross, level 69 Hitmonlee, and level 69 Hitmonchan, plus my HM slaves. Currently training Heracross up one level ;)

So I got a DSi XL today and since I can get access to the Intarwebs from there, I decided it would be better to post updates there whenever I don't have access to my laptop. Anyway, here's all the updates I can give:

-Pushed through the Ice Cave
-Caught 3 new Pokémon- Sweet Stuff the Teddiursa (without the space due to name restrictions) (Level 20, Male), Tonguella the Lickitung (I always make a DW reference >:3) (Level 24, Female), and Notorious the Tauros (Number 1 amirite ;D) (Level 20, Male)

And here are my current team changes:
-Shakey Snake has sadly been replaced by Notorious :<
-Cinnamon has been replaced by Tonguella, as she has a Modest nature and she shall become my new special sweeper >:3

Anyway, that's all for now. Back to grinding, although I have no idea what to expect, I haven't fought Clair since my playing though HeartGold. xD

Also, am I on the Normal list yet? Just wanted to make sure. :3

twinsandvikes777
July 12th, 2010, 06:18 PM
Ok, after some major major major level grinding, I finally took out the Ultimate Trainer, Red.
Pikachu vs Machamp
Pikachu used Volt Tackle did about 1/3. Machamp used EQ, took Pika down to a sliver of health, and Hail finished the job! Good start so far.
Red sends out Lapras
Lapras vs Machamp
Lapras missed with whatever attack it used (I don't remember, nor do I care) and I one shot it with Vital Throw
At this point Machamp is down to about half health, and not being able to read Japanese, I use my HM Slave as revive/healing fodder and to scout what he sent out.
Blastoise vs Sudowoodo (lvl 20 :D)
Blastoise OHKO'd me :(
Go Hitmonchan!
Hitmonchan: Took two Thunder Punches to wipe out Blastoise.
Snorlax vs Hitmonchan
Hitmonchan two shot him with Sky Uppercut
Four down, two to go..
Charizard vs Spearow (more healing)
Charizard vs Hitmonchan
Charizard used Air Slash brought me down to 32 HP remaining!
I crit'd w/ Thunder Punch though and OHKO'd it, meaning all he had left was Venasaur.
Venasaur vs Hitmonchan
Hitmonchan used Ice Punch, Venasaur down to about 1/3 health.
Venasaur KO'd JackieCHAN :(
Go, BruceLEE and avenge your brother!!!
BruceLEE used Blaze Kick, and the battle was done. I finally beat this Monotype.
My quote shall be, "Level grinding sucks. Period."
Final Team:
BruceLEE the Hitmonlee, level 83
Blaze Kick
Hi Jump Kick
Rock Smash
Strength
One of the better ones. He was ok up until he got Blaze Kick, then he got better coverage.

JackieCHAN the Hitmonchan level 86
Thunder Punch
Fire Punch
Ice Punch
Sky Uppercut
Easily the MVP. With a moveset that covers near every weakness in my team, and a great attack to boot, he was amazing.

Hornz the Heracross level 79
Shadow Claw
Brick Break
Aerial Ace
MegaHorn
Had to be the LVP. I loved the little guy, but he was hard to train and ended up a few levels behind the rest of my team. Didn't even see the field against Red.

Muscle (I think.. Stupid Japanese) the Machamp level 84
EarthQuake
Revenge
Vital Throw
Payback
She was one of my favorites as she crushed the opposition muahahaha. Crappy movepool let her down, so I had to boost with a few TM's.

And special thanks to Slave the Totodile, Slave the Spearow, and NOUSE the Sudowoodo for revive fodder and HM help.

Archaon
July 13th, 2010, 02:42 AM
Hi there,
I'm going to take on the Flying challenge.

To make it official:

Name: Archaon
Team: I don't know yet. Probably Pidgeot but what else...?
Version: SoulSilver
Type: Flying

Edit:
I started my first challenge of this kind with Totodile.
On my way to Mr.Pokemon I didn't train it very much. After I recieved my first Pokeballs I instantly caught a Pidgey and started to train.
When I fought Falkner the first try was a bad loss (damn Roost).
I was successfull in the second try. My Pidgey reached level 16 after defeating his and that one level was enough to smash his Pidgeotto.

While moving on to Azalea I failed to find a Hippop. Maybe I should search more seriously.

Anyways...

I rescued the Slowpoke with almost no effort and headed to the Gym.
Meanwhile my Pidgey reached level 18 and evolved into Pidgeotto.
The battle against Bugsy was kinda onesided. Only Scither managed to hurt my Pidgeotto enough to make me use a potion. The rest of his team was a piece of cake.

Now I'm heading to Ilex Forest and Goldenrod.

My current team:

Pidgeotto level 22:
Twister
Roost
Gust
Quick Attack

Totodile level 9:
Scratch
Leer
Water Gun
Rage

Bellsprout level 3:
Vine Whip
Flash

And here it comes:

Flowers Journey Diary, Part IX

Finally, after days in the Battle Frontier I was alble to teach Outrage to Bloom. after this i went to the Bug contest, caught a Pinsir and won...a Dawn Stone...great...hmpf...went to the Pokeathlon thing...looked in the shop and made some jumps in to the air. the Reason: a Leaf Stone. So i spent about two Hours in the Stamina course and earned 2500 Points.
I was Ready for Kanto, so i got on board of the ship...fought trainers. played hide and seek with the little girls evolved Nights into Shiftry after it had learned Extrasensory.
Landed in Vermillion City and started in the Gym and Lt. Surge...his Double Team spam is a bit annoying, it let 4 Earthquakes miss...but eventually Bloom and Gideon won me my ninth Badge^^
Next Stop: Saffron City.
Well...nothing special. Sabrina wasn´t that hard cause i had Nights with Dark Pulse...so you can guess hoow the Battle went.
Next stop: Cerulean City and the Power Plant
another Running job...sigh...got the Part of the machine and fought Misty...erhm...do i have to say that this was probably the most easiest Gym till now? Her water Pokemon were not worth mentioning.
Well I´m heading for Celadon City.

At least Misty's Starmie can have a go with a fast Ice Beam. Brock should be a doddle for you though, with slow, x4 weak Grass pokkemon. Lol.
Good luck in Kanto all the same, with your dragon slaying Meganium though :)

I think the time has come for me to take up the challenge again though. I've got that game cartridge with...nothing on it. Must be sorted out.

Sign me up for the Electric challenge.
I will NOT let Falkner irk me so.

So on my first day of my dragon challenge so far i have:
-I leveled up my totidile, and rad through and beat Faulkner pretty easily
- i have been breeding my eggs on plat, all three will be adamant. I know Bagon will have dragon dance, hydro pump, dragon pulse as egg moves, and gible will have dragon pulse, as for trapinch im not quite sure yet.

then shortly i will be transfering the eggs over to my ss so i can really start this challenge!

Oo...nothings going on here recently

well here is Flowers´ Journey Diary, Pert X

After my Victory over Misty, I brought the missing part back to the Power Plant. Afterwards I wend to Celadon and challenged Erica...Well the Battle wasn´t that hard cause the moveset my Pokemon can offer are effective against the most foes. Sludge Bomb and Psychic led me to the win.

Then it goes to Fuchsia were Janina waits for me. Again My moves turned a thought-to-be-hard-fight into a win. Owen´s Psychic blasted her team away.

Next stop was the Kanto Radio Tower where i got a new update for my PokeGear. Then i head for Snorlax and Pewter Gym. Brock isn´t not worth writeing about. Lill cut his team into pieces...Leaf Blade rocks.

the Veridian Gym was closed so I head for Alabastia and Blaires Gym on the SeaFoam island. Surprisingly...he was not the Enemy i feared the most. Cpt.Morgan proved his worth here with his Surf.Only Blaires Magmar stopped Cpt.Morgan. Magmar was finished off by Blooms Earthquake.

No real changes in my team except Nights had learned Rock Slide. My Pokemon are now around Lv 60

I Hope i can make my last update before I Start my Holiday trip on Sunday, cause my nds isn´t travelling with me ;)

Ah finally update:
I beat bugsy and my rival finaalllyyy. I found the farfetch'd got cut and went to teach Bella headbutt after I taught totodile cut. Took about an hour and a half to find a male aipom(after about 7 heracross and one female aipom). I named him Giles(I may change it when I get to Goldenrod). Also my Owl evolved into noctowl and Speckle is still a togepi at level 21. Now I'm just training Giles since he's only at level 4.

Here is my team:

Owl lv20
Uproar
Peck
Reflect
Hypnosis

Speckle lv21

Metronome

Giles lv4

EJ, could you put me in the Electric challengers? Thanks :)


And now
The road to power! Electric Journal Entry 1!

Read in British accent y'all
-I decided not to con the nickname of Aero any more and instead, embraced my true name, Joseph.
-Also, confirmed I'm a boy.
-Got a whole bunch of stuff from Mother
-Got a Cyndaquil from Elm
-Proudly showed off my Cyndaquil to Lyra and Mother, who called this ferocious Fire pokémon, 'cute'. I demand an explanation.
-Got the Pokégear from, would you credit it, Mother.
-Got to Cherrygrove and some running shoes which I intend to run in.
-Was harassed by a guy for leaving him alone. Stalker. Get lost.
-Found Mr. Pokemon and Oak, and got mai omelette (well, an egg).
-Also, got a swanky Pokédex.

Saved my game here.

I should pick up some slack really xD but I'm kinda busy prepping for holidays. Speaking of which, have fun Dragonsfreak. :D

TEAM:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a4/Spr_b_g4_155.png
Hualalai the Jolly Cyndaquil

Level 6
-Tackle
-Leer
-Smokescreen
-

Cyndaquil was chosen due to me being cheap and wanting an advantage over my rival. If you haven't guessed yet, Cyndaquil learns Eruption, and Hualalai is a volcano on, yes, Hawaii.

http://students.cup.edu/gor5712/hawaii.jpg
Close enough. Besides, a beach is more 'summery' than a volcano.
Let's get into the summer spirit. :D
Peace out guys, looking forward to seeing all your logs. :)
Wow, this song I'm listening to at time of writing is pretty inspirational. d:

Update number 2:
Before I went through Ilex Forest, I once again tried to catch a Hippop and this time I was successfull. I started to train it immediately but it was quite difficult with only Splash, Synthesis and Tail Whip but I managed to bring it on level 10 where it learned Tackle.
I arrived at Goldenrod but before entering the Gym I fought almost every trainer I could find and entered the the Bug-Catching Contest. I got a Caterpie in level 16 which evolved after a few battles to Metapod and finally to Butterfree.
Meanwhile Hippop evolved to Skiploom and learned Poison Powder.
I entered the gym in Goldenrod. Whitneys Miltank was really tough but I reached a draw due to Poison. After I got my third badge I went on to Ecruteak. I defeated every trainer in the Burned Tower, including my rival.
after that I moved on at route 38 to train my Pokemon even further.
In Olivine I cleared the Glitter Lighthouse and went back to Ecruteak.
I finally entered the gym to defeat Morty.
Two of his Pokemon fainted due to Curse (stupid ones) and his Gengar lost to the combined power of Leech Seed and Gust.
Now I have four badges.

My team:

Pidgeotto level 34:
Twister
Roost
Gust
Quick Attack

Jumpluff levle 27:
Headbutt
Synthesis
Leech Seed
Poison Powder

Butterfree level 19:
Tackle
String Shot
Bug Bite
Supersonic

Totodile level 9:
Scratch
Surfer
Water Gun
Rage

Bellsprout level 7:
Vine Whip
Flash
Cut
Growth

By the way. I'm not in the challengers list yet. Could you change this please?

thanks Corruptodile, same goes for your holidays :D


here is my last Diary entry:

Flowers´ Journey Diary, Part XI

After my battle with Blaire, i surfed back to cinnabar to push Blue back into his Gym. Then i surfed and walked to Veridian and fought the trainers there and Blue...he wasn´t really a problem...only his Arcanine and Gyarados gave me a little bit to chew.
With sixteen Badges in my pocket i started trainig for Red.
I didn´t count the number of E4 runs i did. but after 25 or so i decided to take on red. Venusaur seems to be my monotype nemesis...i had to fight red twice because Venusaur crushed me the first time.


1. Gideon versus Pikachu: Gideon is faster and used Dig. OHKO. Red switched to Charizard, I chose Cpt.Morgan.
2. Cpt.Morgan versus Charizard: Charizard attacked with Air Slash, Cpt.Morgan survived with 25% of its hp and attacked with surf. Charizard is in the red area with its HP and red used a Full Restore. Cpt.Morgan Attacked again with Surf and both Pokemon fainted due to the Hail.
3. Bloom versus Lapras: Bloom used Petal Dance for a little less than half of Lapras´s HP. Lapras used Blizzard for ~70% of Bloom´s HP. then Blooms Petal Dance landed a Crit and Lapras was history. Red sent in Venusaur.
4. versus Venusaur: Two Pokemon were Required to beat this Beast. First i sent in Lill, who sent Venusaur to sleep, then i switched to Owen and used Psychic to finish off Venusaur. Red sent in Snorlax, I to Nights.
5. Nights versus Snorlax. 3HKO with Dark Pulse. Snorlax´ Blizzards missed
6. Lill Versus Blastoise: A single Leaf Blade was all that Blastoise needed. OHKO

The Final 6:

Meh, not on the first post but update anyway.

Started from New Bark with a Cyndaquil.
Went to to Mr. Pokeyman and got an egg.
Came back and beat rival.
Delivered the egg and caught a Pidgey after Lyra taught me to do what I've been doing since '95
Sent Cyndaquil to the pokewalker.
Tied the pokewalker to my little sister who crawled everywhere.
Proceeded to Cherrygrove and then to Violet levelling up Pidgey slowly.
Caught a Kangaskan and returned it to the game.
Beat Falkner with a lv 10 Pidgey. Ha! How do you like your Dad's pokemon now?
Elm wants me to be the surrogate for the pokemon egg. The favours I do for this guy.

Wazzup. Since I have nothing better to do with my extra Soul Silver, would you mind terribly if i tried a Steel-type challenge?

...Cool.

Player name: Grey

Totodile obtained, named it "Unfavorite".
Mr. Pokémon quest, zippadeedoodah.
Caught a random Ratatta.
Traded Ratatta for an egg containing a Piplup, which will eventually become a Water/Steel Empoleon.
Set to work hatching the Piplup egg... la dee da...
Piplup hatched. Named it "Farran" for no apparent reason.
Training Farran...
Ditched Farran for a new egg. I realized that my Piplup is too sexy for the name Farran, and not wanting to wait 'til Goldenrod, I traded over a new Piplup egg and a Magmar to make things go faster.
Hatching new piplup...

July 20th, 2010, 07:45 AM
Update number 3:
A lot has happend after defeating Morty. I realised that I have chosen the wrong game for I can't get a Mantine or a Gligar.
So I went to Mahogany to get the Red Gyarados. I succeeded in catching it and after that I throw Team Rocket out of town. With Gyarados enforcing my team it was a piece of cake.
Before entering the gym, there were some things I had to settle though.
At first I traveled to Cianwood to battle Chuck. Pidgeotto smashed through every Pokemon the trainers send in.
Only Chucks Poliwrath was too tough, but Jumpluff managed to defeat it with Poison Powder and Leech Seed (hell, I love this combo)
After that I got the Secret Potion to heal Ampharos.
I was kind of afrait of the battle against Jasmine so I entered the gym in Mahogany first. Pidgeotto, meanwhile evolved to Pidgeyot, Gyarados and Jumpluff were a well-rehearsed team and beat everything in their way.
With newfound confidence I finally challenged Jasmine.
Her two Magnemites were the pest. Their Thunder Wave and Thunderbolt brought Jumpluff and Gyarados down. Pidgeot managed to defeat the last one with much effort.
Steelix was no match for Gyarados Surfer.
Now I have 7 badges and there is no end in sight.

My team:

Pidgeot level 38:
Twister
Roost
Wing Attack
Quick Attack

Jumpluff levle 32:
Headbutt
Mega Drain
Leech Seed
Poison Powder

Gyarados level 34:
Bite
Surfer
Ice Fang
Twister

Butterfree level 19:
Tackle
String Shot
Bug Bite
Supersonic

Croconaw level 18 (had to evolve it to teach it Strength):
Strength
Surfer
Water Gun
Bite

Bellsprout level 7:
Vine Whip

Horsea sweeps through all the trainers in the Union Cave and we arive in Azelea Town
Once again I see the mysterious guy dressed in black, harassing some old guy
I learn about Team Rocket and all about their plans and meet Kurt, the Pokeball creator.
I head down to the Slowpoke Well and defeat Team Rocket and then ,with my Pokemon nearing lv 20, I head to the Gym

Listen to Prof Oak talk and talk then I confirmed that i was in fact a boy
I named my self George
Spoke to prof Elm and he Gave the choice of starter pokemon and i just picked the first one
Which was the annoying grass on (dose not deserve a name) Forgetting that would lead to my rival getting Cyndaquill not a good choice for me Since I am doing a Ice challenge but oh well
Did the errand for Prof Elm got a pokedex and continued
Encountered my future Rival and it was really just a tackle contest considering we were both on lv 5
I just won
Went back to lab and named my rival Daniel (my brother in law(but difference is i like my brother in law)
i got my Pokeballs and caught a Pidgy
i went straight to the union room and traded an egg for my (she who shall not be named)
Walked around for a while till finally out hatched my Snorunt
Released the Pidgy and then tried to battle
I then learned that it was monumentally difficult to level up a lv 1
Snorunt leveled up finally against a Pidgy and it all became easier after that
I then stayed on the first route till Snorunt was on Lv 10
Yeah i know over kill on the level
Then i headed to violet city
Fought all the trainers on the way and a couple of wild pokemon leveling Snorunt up to like Lv 14
Went to the pokemon center in violet city healed up

And continued down to Azalea Town
Along the was i battled all the trainers and battled multiple wild pokemon
I entered the cave made the quick journey through it battled all the trainers and exited

Dragon Update #2



Restarted my game and traded my team over as eggs after I defeated Falkner
(With my full team hatched I'll skip ahead to where I left off in the first update)
After defeating Team Rocket and earning the Hive Badge I tried to leave Azalea Town but was ambushed by my rival,Jackson
Vs Rival Jackson! Bagon easily OHKO'd Gastly with it's newly learned Bite attack. Next up was my rival's Croconaw who I thought I would defeat easily........Until it used Ice Fang. Jackson's Croconaw OHKO'd Bagon and also took down Gible, Trapinch, and Swablu before finally being KO'd by Dratini's Dragon Rage attack.Last up was Zubat, who was easily defeated by Dratini.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/63/Ani159MS.png+ Ice Fang = EVIL!!!!


After defeating my rival, I had to once again help some loser find his bosses Farfetch'd
After exiting the Ilex Forest, I cleared out all the trainers on Route 34 as I made my way to Goldenrod City
Gible Evolves into Gabite!
As soon as I hit Goldenrod City I found the gym leader and headed straight for the gym
Vs Whitney! First up on here team was Clefairy who stood no chance against any of the Pokemon on my team as it was KO'd by Swablu. Next up was that evil cow we all hate,Miltank. Miltank defeated my Swablu, Horsea, and Trapinch before finally being KO'd by Gabite. I earn my 3rd badge
After the gym battle I get myself a free bike and the SquirtBottle and head north to see what this moving tree I've heard about is.
The "moving tree" turned out to be a Sudowoodo who I caught with my very last Pokeball
Once I cleared all the trainers from Routes 35-37 I headed north to Ecruteak City
Once there it wasn't long before I encountered the three legendary beast and some crazed Suicune stalker named Eusine. I also found my rival again who I went on to destroy.
After all of that I made my way to the Ecruteak Gym and Bit my way(literally) to the gym leader, Morty.
Vs Morty! With Faint Attack on my Trapinch, I swept through Morty's team until I reach Gengar. Gengar OHKO's my Trapinch with Shadow Ball but then is easily KO'd by Bagon and it's Bite Attack earning me my 4th badge.
Currently:Training on Route 38

Realized mistake in trading over a Piplup to use. Begged forgiveness to the OP and shoved Duke Devlin to the back of the team, replaced by some kid's Onix named ROCKY. Ugh.
Continued using ROCKY to hike up Sprout Tower, swatting Bellsprouts away.
Beat the Sprout Elder, Li, using the aptly-named ROCKY, after kicking it multiple times for daring to ignore my orders.
Retched once again at ROCKY's nickname.
Drum fingers through Falkner's opening speech, and then get down to the fighting.
Drop a Rock Throw on Pidgey.
Pidgey dies.
Drop a Rock Throw on Pidgeotto.
Pidgeotto survives and ROCKY acts like a jerk.
We can fly-y, because of you, we can fly-y...
ROCKY faints for refusing to take orders. That's what you get.
Grey healed, got a lecture on the importance of Potions, and went back to Falkner. 'Cause I just can't get enough. >:|
ROCKY commences acting like a jerk. Curse you, level-grinding!
ROCKY lost... again. [swears loudly]
Grey has a hostile breakdown, involving lots of kicking and Piplups being thrown at ROCKY's eyes.
The Nurse Joy informs Grey that Onixes do not work that way, that Pokemon should be treated with love and respect.
Grey sucks it up and goes back in for Falkner Attempt #3.
ROCKY manages to do something right for once and beats Falkner.
Grey is not amused.
Grey's mood is improved when he is told that the Zephyr Badge will make ROCKY stop acting like a jerk... but still plans to ditch him when he catches a new one.
Elm's assistant delivers the Togepi egg, which Grey graciously shoves in a dark corner of his PC.
Grey follows Falkner's advice and sets sail for Azalea... or not.
Grey is approached by a girl in a kimono, admiring his Egg before he could shove it in a dark corner of his PC.
Grey considers using the egg as a conversation starter with the rather good-looking kimono girl, but she twirls away.
The Egg is shoved in an even darker corner of Grey's PC.
Commenced Onix hunt...

Team: ROCKY | Onix, lv13

Grey read the rules again and realized that he didn't make a mistake after all, and brought Duke Devlin back into the team.
After a long while of running around Union Cave, a new Onix was caught, and ROCKY was sent to rot in the PC. The Onix did not get a nickname because it was very late at night and Grey was about fed up with the scenery.
Proceeding to Azalea Town, Grey leveled his Pokemon up to level 16. Duke Devlin evolved and got Peck, which made Grey happy.
Grey entered the Azalea Gym and rode on some spiders.
Grey was taught the charms of Bug Pokemon. Duke Devlin was taught the charms of Pecking Bug Pokemon.
Finally, we come to Bugsy.
Team: DukeDevlin the Prinplup, level 17. Onix the Onix, level 16.
Encyclopedia Purple over here demonstrates what he's learned from his studies.
Scyther and Duke Devlin are sent out.
Scyther Focus Energizes, Duke Devlin Pecks... Scyther Leers, Duke DEvlin Pecks...
Ah, here we go! Now Scyther U-Turned for the almighty Metapod. Who... beat Duke Devlin.
Grey looks mildly confused, since he was not paying attention.
Out comes Onix, who beats Metapod.
Onix grew to level 17! He also learned Rock Tomb.
Scyther comes out again, and cleverly U-Turns into Kakuna. Onix threw rocks on it until it fell.
Onix was poisoned. Not cool. However, Grey healed him.
One Rock Tomb and Scyther is down for the count.
Grey smirked at Encyclopedia Purple, who gave him the Hive Badge and TM89, the not-so-dreaded U-turn.
Onix grew to level 18.
Grey procrastinated doing anything else by reading some good old Let's Plays, but then realized that he actually needed to get stuff done.
A RIVALMAN draws near!
Grey discovers that Rivalman talks to himself.
Cue battle with Rivalman! Duke Devlin faints Gastly with just two short payments of METAL CLAW *****.
Also, he levels up.
Grey switches Pokemon for Onix to face Bayleef, but then realizes that Duke Devlin has Peck. Onix fails miserably and Grey switches back.
Duke Devlin faints, and Onix waits to get buttwhooped.
Onix is buttwhooped.
Grey storms back and yells at Rivalman for a good five minutes before starting another battle.
Grey fails miserably.
Grey kicks himself for letting Rivalman take the stupid Bayleef.
Rivalman sits on stage left and gloats while Grey trots off to do some training.

Dragon Update #3(A Huge One)

Ok, it's been a while since the last time I posted and I've done a lot since then so I'll try to sum it all up as briefly as possible.



Started on Route 38 where I worked my way and onto Route 39 where I met the Safari Zone Warden, Baoba
After meeting him, I worked my way down to Olivine City only to find out from my rival that the leader isn't around and is at the lighthouse taking care of a sick Pokemon
I scale the lighthouse and meet Jasmine and decide to help here pick up some medicine for her Ampharos
I make then begin the long surf down to Cianwood City where I prepare for my fifth gym challenge
Trapinch evolves into Vibrava!
Dratini Evolves into Dragonair!
VS Chuck! A simple battle where Swablu KO's his Primeape and then is beaten by his Poliwrath who is then defeated by my Gabite and I earn the Storm Badge!
After the battle I pick up the secretpotion and after seeing Suicune again and battling Eusine, I backtrack to Olivine City and deliver the secretpotion to Jasmine who then returns to the gym
Before I battled her I decided to head north to the Safari Zone and battle all the trainers there for extra EXP
Bagon evolves into Shelgon!
Swablu evolves into Altaria!
After I reach the Safari Zone I flew back to Olivine and began my battle with Jasmine
VS Jasmine! I taught my new Shelgon Fire Blast and it easily swept through Jasmine's steel type team, earning me my 6th badge
Horsea evolves into Seadra!
Seadra evolves into Kingdra!
After winning my 6th badge it was time to go to Mahogany Town but when I got there some fat guy was blocking the gym door and told me to check out the lake of rage
Once I got to the Lake of Rage I met up with a Pokemon trainer named Lance after capturing the red Gyarados
Lance claimed that Team Rocket has a secret underground base in Mahogany Town so we join forces and clear out the base along with two of their executives(Ariana and Petrel)
After defeating Team Rocket, I went straight into what I knew would be one of the most challenging things throughout this challenge
VS Pryce! Seel was easily KO'd by my Gabite but my team really struggled with his Dewgong. It took out half of my team before finaly going down thanks to my Kingdra. Kingdra OHKO'd Piloswine and I earn yet another badge, making seven of them.
Once I left the gym I got a phone call from Prof. Elm saying that Team Rocket is on the Radio broadcast saying something about a comeback.
Knowing this I head to Goldenrod City and one by one defeated every Rocket Grunt and Executive until Team Rocket was no more.
With Team Rocket out of the picture, I flew back to Mahogany and started traveling on Route 44 as I made my way through the Ice Path and into Blackthorn City.
For the first time in a while I could enter a gym without any distractions so I enter the gym and make my way to the gym leader
VS Clair! This was actually way easier than I thought it would be. Her Gyarados went down to my Dragonair and it's Thunder attack and the rest of her team was swept by my Dragonair's Dragon Rush attack. After the battle Clair won't admit defeat and I have to take the Dragon's Den challenge which I successfully accomplish which forces Clair to hand over my 8th and final badge!
I went into the Whirl Islands and captured Lugia!
With Johto pretty much out of the way, there was nothing left for me but the Pokemon League!
After clearing Victory Road, I lost at the Pokemon League several times before I was strong enough to win and during my training and continuous losses to the E4, Gabite Evolves into Garchomp, Shelgon evolves into Salamence, and Vibrava evolves into Flygon!
With my full team at my dispolsal I easily worked my way through the E4 and had the toughest battle of my life against the champion, Lance
After about 30 minutes of harshness I defeated Lance and became the champ of Johto.......for now.
Currently:Taking the boat ride to Vermilion City in the Kanto Region!

@TrainRidesBy, technically part of what you just said was impossible, considering you can't use Cut til after beating Bugsy, and you gotta use Cut to get to the Headbutt guy. You said you used headbutt, got a Heracross, then challenged Bugsy. Correct me if I'm wrong, but something seems a little fishy bout that.

- Beat Rivalman, thanks to a well-timed critical hit. HOO YEAH!!
- Realized that I totally should have named him 'Koya'.
- Went into Ilex Forest and did the little brat's chores for him.
- Caught a nearby Paras and taught it Cut.
- Ever seen a Steelix jumping? It's not a pretty picture, I tell you.
- Met Lyra's grandparents.
- Hit Goldenrod. You know what that means: SCYTHER!
- Since according to the game it's Thursday, I fought the battles along Route 35 (including Stalker Juggler Irwin for the LOLz) and went to the Bug-Catching Contest.
- Realized that I made the worst Pokémon choice ever. Steelix + super effective moves + Scyther on the line = bad.
- I saw three Butterfrees. I saw three Beedrills. I saw at least five Paras. Heck, I saw a Pinsir. But there's NO [censored] SCYTHER. Grey is about to make like Steelix and RAGE.
- And just to top it all off Steelix was paralyzed and at half health, because I forgot they don't heal your Pokémon in this game.
- Steelix was downed by a Pinsir. Scyther challenge is FAIL.
- And then the first prize winner CAUGHT A SCYTHER. RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE.
- Oh well, I'll just have to fiddle with the clock and try again. 'Cause I'm not giving up without that Scyther, no sir, not me. >C
- ...Er, or not. RRRRAAAAAGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
- Figured I would just breed my own Scyther since the Day-Care is right south of Goldenrod.
- Pointed and laughed at the Bug-Catching Contest and went off to the Pokémon Center to trade for a mommy Scyther and catch a Ditto.
- At least I found a Ditto alright...
- "STEELIX was squeezed by the wild DITTO!" Eww.
- After much struggling and about ten Pokéballs, I caught Ditto. Now to find a Scyther and shove it in the Day-Care... heh heh...

All right, first update!

- Started off where I previously left off; Lake of Rage.
- Delayed the capturing of the Red Gyarados and settled for chatting with the locals. Got a few last minute training sessions in as well.
- Challenged that pesky Gyarados and ended up capturing it seeing as my Feraligatr is ugly, it's now my aquatic transportation HM slave.
- Spoke with the dreamy Lance. Told him I wouldn't help him and proceeded to annoy his Dragonite. Ceri is still roaring at me; yeah, I was real intimidated.
- Agreed to help Lance.
- Trained a little bit more and delayed Ceri's evolution.
- Headed towards the ever-so suspicious Souvenir Shop. Watched Lance do his thing and fantasized about him. He's SOOOOO dreamy!
- Proceeded to let Lance be the hero he is and followed him into the Team Rocket HQ. I'm sure my mother would be so proud!
- Challenged that pesky Rocket Grunt, you know "Mister Hyuck-hyuck-hyuck", and Ceri kicked that Raticate's butt after getting Hyper Fanged. Afterwards, she evolved and I know have two Ariados'.
- Silver a.k.a. "???" began to rant to me. I ignored him then adored his hair; red.. it's such a beautiful color.
- Beat that smoker, Petrel, and laughed at his hair.
- Followed the Murkrow and teamed up with Mr. Dreamy and owned Ariana and that silly little grunt.
- Cried when Lance left me with that beautiful speech.
- Wandered around a bit more and finally decided to go teach that Pryce some manners. I'll stay on his tundra of a lawn all I want!
- Saved right before Pryce.

Update number...whatever:
To be aible to defeat the Kimono Girls I trained on Route 45. While I was searching for the last remaining trainers I was luckily able to catch a Skarmory. It replaced Delibird and in the end I must say that I absolutely DON'T regret this.
After about ten hours of training (or at least I felt so) my team was finally ready to challenge the Eeveelutions. And this time they where victorious.
With regrown confidence I prepared to enter the Elite Four. But first I had to encounter Lugia. I wasn't able to catch it (I'm not allowed to use it anyways) so I defeated it.
But now my time has come.
After a few battles, including one against my rival, I finally entered the E4.
Though it was very tough each time, I managed to defeat one after another.
Until Lence...
Gyarados and Aerodactyl fainted, but his first Dragonite was a wall I were not able to climb. It OHKOed everyone of my team with his Thunder.
Damn...
Okay, let's train again.
I defeated tons of wild Pokemon and every trainer who wanted a rematch and finally I reentered the E4.
This time it was a bit easier.
I reached Lence with only three revives used.
His Gyarados defeated my Jumpluff but got poisoned and Leech Seeded. With this it was no threat to my own Gyarados.
His Aerodactyl was defeated easily by two Steel Wings of my Skarmory.
Charizard fainted after two Surf of Gyarados. And then they came... Three Dragonites.
But...Gyarados was faster this time.
It OHKOed his two level 49 Dragonites with his Ice Fang.
The last one survived one, but his Thunder missed and Gyarados defeated it.
That means...I defeated the E4.

My team:
Pidgeot level 51:
Twister
Roost
Wing Attack
Quick Attack

Gyarados level 52:
Bite
Surfer
Ice Fang
Dragon Rush

Jumpluff levle 50:
Bounce
Giga Drain
Leech Seed
Poison Powder

Butterfree level 51:
Shadow Ball
Silver Wind

Went into a patch of grass south of Goldenrod, looking for a Drowzee or something, AND FOUND ******* ENTEI.
Entei fled. >C
Decided to trade Scyther egg for Skarmory.
Skarmory egg get!
Hatched and raised Skarmory.
Finished with Skarmory, finally ditched Kenya the Fly slave.

Final Dragon Type Update

Since I haven't been able to use my computer lately I went on ahead and played through the remainder of the game and since I'm pretty tired this will really lack detail.


Started in Vermilion City where I challenged and defeated Lt. Surge for my 9th Badge
Went North to Saffron and defeated Sabrina for my 10th badge
went west to Celadon where I earned my 11th badge from Erika
After that I solved the power plant problem and got back the missing machine part from the last Team Rocket Grunt in the game
Found Misty and defeated her for my 12th badge
Headed down to Fuchsia City and easily beat the gym leader, Janine, earning my 13th badge
Made my way through the Digglett Tunnel and into Pewter City where I earned my 14th badge from Brock
Got the Rainbow Wing and captured Ho-Oh!
Returned to Kanto and surfed to Cinnabar Island and found Blaine's secret gym where I received my 15th badge
Met the final gym leader, Blue, on Cinnabar Island and then followed him back to his gym where I barely beat him to earn my 16th and final badge
Got a call from Prof. Oak telling me to come back to his lab and once I got there I received HM08 Rock Climb and the ability to go into Mt. Silver
Before heading to Mt. Silver I rechallenged the E4 and slipped past Lance once again making the Johto champ
Now with only one thing to do I scaled Mt. Silver, but when I reached the top........

http://www.pictureshack.us/images/6585HNI_0012.JPG


VS PKMN Trainer Red, The Final Fight! He starts with his lv 88 Pikachu who goes down with no problem to my Garchomp's Dig attack but unfortunately, Garchomp gets KO'd in an attempt to defeat Red's Lapras. Since Garchomp had did about 1/2 damage on Lapras it easily went down to my Salamence. Next up was Snorlax who I didn't expect to use a Blizzard attack which KO'd my Salamence after Salamence managed to deal a good deal of damage to it. But, to make this long story short, Red and I went back and forth in this brutal battle until only two Pokemon were left standing.
Flygon vs Venusaur, My last hope! I knew Flygon wasn't my most powerful Pokemon but I knew Venusaur wasn't his most powerful so I begin this last part of the battle with a Dragon Claw attack which did a little less than half damage. Vensuar went with Giga Drain which really made a huge impact on Flygon's health. I knew at this point I had to go with Flygon's arthquake attack. I knew it wouldn't knock it out but it would do more damage than dragon claw. But, after a whole game full of misfortune for my dragon team, Earthquake landed with a critical hit! It still wasn't enough to finish Venusaur in one hit but it put it's health in the red zone. With no full restores left Venusaur uses Giga Drain once again but it is not enough to finish Flygon as my Flygon finishes Venusaur with one last Earthquake attack.


http://www.pictureshack.us/images/9892HNI_0018.JPG
Red is Defeated!


This challenge was definitely one of the hardest things I've ever done in a video game, especially considering how hard dragons are to raise.

I plan on doing one last HG/SS monotype challange with electric type Pokemon and this last one will have much more details than this one did.

A small update on my Poison challenge;


Started off where I previously left off, at Pryce's Gym. I was easily able to take him down; spamming Sucker Punch and Thunderbolt.
Earned my Glacier Badge!
Bought a RageCandyBar then was thoroughly offended when that man wouldn't let me pass! Out of the kindness of my heart, I wasted my precious money on those crappy candy bars!
Decided he wasn't going to let me pass until the Team Rocket Radio Tower event was taken care of.
Flew to Goldenrod City. Headed to the underground basement where I proceeded to make fun of that grunt's silly pink hair.
I was then stripped down and forced into those icky black clothes. I then proceeded to harass the citizens of Goldenrod City. Ceri roared at me again after I tried taking her item like the ebil Team Rawrkit member I was.
I decided I was only wasting my time and quickly proceeded to take care of the little Radio Tower. Proton and Ariana fell before my hands. Archer burned my Ceri... literally. I managed to win with a last minute Sucker Punch courtesy of my wounded pseudo-arachnid.
Accepted the Silver Wing from the Director. Made my way down to the Ice Cave; easily made my way through it and shoved that silly Kimono Girl off the ice.
Proceeded to Blackthorn City and completed a few last minute training sessions with my team in preparation for Clair.
Challenged her Gym. Beat her little posse, but, the first round went horribly! Her Gyarados knocked out three of my five beloved partners. My Gengar managed to take it down. I used a Max Revive on my Crobat, sacrificing my Gengar in return. After several rounds of Toxic and the Shedding of the Skin, I took her two Dragoniars' down. Finally came the bane of my existance.. that damned Kingdra. After much cursing and violent urges to cry like a baby, I beat it by letting Toxic take effect and using literally every healing item I had.
Beat the Kimono Girls. Caught Lugia and put it in the box. Made my way to the Victory Road entrance.
Saved before Rival battle.


Here's a small update for the levels of my team; yes, I don't train Ceri that much. She just walks around with me. <3

EDIT: I'm sorry.. I've just got to say this.



I bet he did.

xD. Made my day. Side note, get your Enigma Stone HG/SS event guys.

First entry. Forgive me for this name and future names if they be bad.
We're on the road again...

What is this...a dream? Yes...it must be. Who is this? I know this person...Professor Oak? That's your name? Ok. Such a cute Pokémon...it appears to be a Marill...my name? I'm called Joseph, professor. Ready? Ready for what? The world of Pokémon? Wait...I have questions!

I awoke to find myself in my bedroom. What a weird dream I had. There was this man, who said he was Professor Oak. The only professor I know is professor Elm who lives in the same town as me. New Bark town. Ooh, my bad. I haven't introduced myself to you have I? I'm Joseph, and I'm pretty keen on Electric Pokémon. They rock. I'm going to become a Electric Pokémon master one day. Heh, a boy can dream. I went downstairs to get some breakfast (at 16:30 too!). My mum comments on my lateness, and said my lady friend Lyra was around playing with her Marill. Cool, cool. I'm shocked that Professor Elm wants me, but nevertheless, I accept. I get all my stuff from Mum and set off to Elm's lab.

Upon leaving the door, a Marill wandered past, later found out to belong to Lyra. Who blanked me. I am disappoint. Anyway, I go to Elm's. Well would have. There was a red haired boy looking into the lab. I asked him what he was doing, curious to find out. However, he pushed me away. No-one but Elm wants me today...

I entered the lab and was happily greeted by Elm, who gave me a grand speech on how Pokémon used to be allowed outside of Pokéballs. Halfway through this speech, he gets an email from a Mr. Pokémon, whoever he is. Apparently, he's got a discovery and Elm wants me to check it out. I'm not given a choice in the matter. HOWEVER, I do get my very first Pokémon! Out of the three presented to me, I choose Cyndaquil and give him a nickname, Kilauea, in reference to the most active volcano on Hawaii. Whilst trying to leave, I get stopped by Elm's assistant, who gives me some potions.

After leaving Lyra, my lady friend if you recall, finally acknowledges my existance, and comments on my Pokémon calling the flaming mouse, 'cute'. Meh. Could have been worse.She suggests I go tell my mum where I'm going. What am I, five? I tell her, no. Quite bluntly. When she leaves though I go back home. Don't tell anyone about this. Mum let's me go off into the big wide world, so all is good. She also gives me my Pokégear. Excellant. I walk out and of to do the errand, yet Elm stops me from doing this. He wants to trade phone numbers. Sorry Elm, but I only think of Lyra that way. My sweet, beautiful Lyra...he walks off regardless, letting me go out onto Route 29. Finally!

Moments after setting foot into the grass, Pokémon start to attack my feet. Kilauea manages to defeat them all, learning how to create a screen of smoke in the process. Impressed by Kilauea, I decided on mastering Fire Pokémon after I conquer Electric Pokémon. After swatting off swarms of Pokémon (no pun intended), me and my new buddy arrived at Cherrygrove City.

Cherrygrove seemed like a holiday destination more than anything, though that may be because, I never really set foot outside New Bark Town. Moments after I entered, an old man offered to show me important buildings. So he runs off, and I'm walking behind, and he notices and slows down. Yes. I command you. After the little tour he gives me his sweaty shoes. Or so I thought. He gives me a brand new pair instead. I then run, not walk, run into the Pokécenter and heal Kilauea up.

When I left Cherrygove onto Route 30, the old man stopped me again, this time to give me a map. Thank you very much! Hmm. It appears I need to go north from where I am. I thank him when he wishes me luck on my Journey. Once again, entering the grass summons Pokémon, though Kilauea is a little bit stronger this time round, and kill's things easier. However, Weedle cut's Kilauea life span short by poisoning him! I find a stray Potion, so all is not lost. Luckily though, Kilauea survives the poison. There was a nice looking house that I intended to steal from visit. This guy appreciated moi visiting him, and promptly gave me an Apricorn box. Not sure if I need it or not, but hey, "the best things in life are free". I continue my avid trek onto Mr. Pokémon's house. I find an Antidote on the way, and thinking back to when Kilauea was poisoned though...'thanks'. Walking past the epic battle between a Pidgey and Rattata, I arrived at Mr. Pokémon's house.

Mr. Pokémon is surprised to see me, you think Elm would have set an email back. Apparently not. Regardless, Mr. Pokémon gives me a Mystery Egg. He offer's to let me rest at his house, and I accept. There is another guy...wait isn't he...

My name is Professor Oak. However, everyone calls me the Pokémon Professor.

He is! He's the guy that sabotaged my dream! He stalked me after that dream, somehow knowing I was on an errand run. He better have some sort of apology ready before my fists meet his f...what's this? A Pokédex? I'll let you live. Then he gives me his number. He fled after I took a swing at him.

I exited Mr. Pokémon's house, who said something bad had happened, requesting I came back immediately. Well screw you Elm. I'm just chilling here for now. I'll come when I feel like it.

Saved game.

Small update for moi!


Managed to defeat my scrumptious yet silly rival. That Kadabra was the only source of my problems! It was finally dealt a good X-Scissoring which took it down.
I trained like hell with Ceri in Victory Road; it'll all prove futile soon.
I made my way to the Indigo Plataeu. The music is so scerene.. as expected. I idled there and just watched the flowers. However, I went to speak to my beloved Ariados and she began to nod slowly.I took this as a sign to go frolic, however, those silly borders wouldn't let me! Borders... how rude.
I healed about three to four times at the Pokémon Center, maybe that would help me out some luck for the inevitable Pokéslaughter that's about to happen. I sighed before trudging up the stairs and giving my Ariados one final hug before she gets her butt handed to her.
I made my way to Will's room. I stood there for a moment, admiring the scenery before I turned to stare death in the face. Ceri seemed to sense my distress and she nuzzled me then nodded slowly once more, as to say, " It's okay. Just give it your all." I promptly burst in to tears as I held her close. With new determination I proudly walked up to Will and challenged him! We can not lose!
After I recieved my Pokémon back from Nurse Joy, I went outside to cry and mope. Ethan called me; apparently, his Marril smells like a dust mop or something. Isn't it a water Pokémon? Shouldn't it like taking baths? I ignored him and called my mother to complain about my day. All she had to say in respose was to ask if I picked up the items she bought with MY money. How rude.
I sighed and Zuzu spun around then seemed to snort at me! Rude much? However, thanks to Will I managed to get Ceri some experience by switching her out at the last second. She didn't grow much, but, every little bit counts! With -yet again- new found determination, I marched back into that Plataeu right in to Will's room. I wasn't losing again!
After I had been admitted to the hospital along with my Pokémon I sighed. What was I missing? I asked myself as I rubbed the bandages on my Nidoking's head. I noticed there wasn't an eerie feeling around me. What had I forgotten!? Ceri sighed and began to cackle, which slightly creeped me out. Wait.. cackle? That's it! I'd forgotten about Mystique!
I immediately ran to the P.C. shoving this poor old man out of the way and I quickly withdrew my Gengar. I'd put her in the box before I entered Victory Road and forgot to take her back out.
Now, this was the final time we were losing to Will!
Finally.. after about ten minutes of going back and forth using Full Restores and even some Revives, Will had been defeated thanks to a last minute Sucker Punch. Ceri was the only one who remained. Now, on to Koga. This aught to be very fun...

Type: Normal
Version: SoulSilver
Planned Team: Togekiss, Ursaring, Tauros, Miltank, Lickilicky, Clefable

Update no. 1:
- Got a Totodile starter
- Grinded Totodile to level 10 to make the trip to Violet a bit smoother.
- Beat the rivalguy.. thing
- Went to Violet City
- Swept up Bellsprouts
- Wen't to the gym, surprisingly very easy, as it took really fast, just biting again and again was good enough to kill Falkner's Pidgey team
- Finally got team member no. 1, Togepi, and it had *gasp* Serene Grace and it was *double gasp* Modest. Evolved into Togetic immediately. Got it to level 19, since I'm gonna be using it for a while.
- Got through until Azalea town with Extrasensory and occasionally, when I get bored, Metronome. At least I have Sweet Kiss and Roost.
- I continued on and swept up the team rocket people in Slowpoke well.
- Got a bunch of friend balls made to have a stronger Return attack ready.
- Beat Bugsy on the second try. It was surprisingly hard even if U-Turn is weak on me.
- Wen't on to beat Rival guy again. A tad bit harder than last time, but it was kinda funny when I accidentally pressed Metronome and a Flamethrower came out on Chickorita.
- Killed a bunch of bugs in Ilex Forest.
- Finally got to Goldenrod, and I went shopping a bit. I replaced Metronome and Sweet Kiss with Hyper Beam and Solarbeam. The additional effects may be hindering, but it won't matter if I OHKO anyway, it's always fun having a 225 Base Power move at my disposal. I saved a ton of money because I haven't bought anything so far. I do wish I could cheat and get Gamecorner TM's but that would be wrong.
- Swept up the Goldenrod Underground. It was a chance to OHKO those single Pokemon trainers with Hyper Beam.
- Proceeded to challenge the Goldenrod Gym. I don't care about those Sentret trainers, but I was very excited to fight Whitney.
- The battle went by fast. I was able to 2HKO her Clefairy with two Extrasensories. And I did a surprising OHKO on Miltank with Hyper Beam. Somehow, I expected something bad to go wrong. But it went smoothly. ^_^

My current team:

Togetic @ Nothing
- Hyper Beam
- Extrasensory
- Solarbeam
- Roost

And some other HM slaves I'm not gonna bother to mention.

I have a strange feeling Ęℓαчиıı will make some sort of crude joke about the last sentence in my log.

Oh, I would never do that. n_n
How hard and how fast do you two plan on going?


Update!
However, I'm in a rush, so, it'll be... bland. I'll add pictures and more detail later... if I remember.

- Beat Koga.
- Healed Pokémon.
- Easily beat Bruno thanks to Ceri's Psychic and Zuzu's Fly and Aerial Ace.
- Struggled with Karen, but, Toxic finished most of her Pokémon off.
- Saved twice.
- Entered heaven Lance's Room.
- Made an unnecessary comment about being alone in the room with him.
- Proceeded to have the most irritating battle of my life.
- Managed to pull off a win.
- Got into the Hall of Fame.

In other words... I beat the Elite Four + Lance.
Now.. to train like hell to get ready for Red.

I'll have a go at this :D

Username: Zeph.
Type: Bug
Version: HG (HeartGold)

The story so far:

+ I decided to pick a Totodile http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/c/ce/Ani158MS.png, because if I ever need to cross water then it makes sense to use it instead of a bridge or boat or anything =D
+ I'm finally able to leave New Bark. The pokemon in Route 29 are no match for me and young Totodile at my side! =D
+ I make it to Cherrycrove City, where I go through the whole game of tag with the old paedophile gentleman, resulting in the suspiciously generous gift of the Running Shoes and Map Card. I think there's a list for guys like that...
+ Onwards to Mr. Pokemon's house. Again, crushed any pitiful creature that dared challenge me for a piece of turf. Totodile made it to lv.6 during.
+ I got the Apricorn Box! =D
+ Holy-! Encountered a Spinirak and nearly gazm'd. No pokeballs though =(
+ Made it to Mr. P's house. He gave me an egg. Nice I guess. Old man Oak, who also happens to be there, gives me the pokedex =D
+ But wait! My phone rings, it's Elm. What's that? Trouble? Here? Now?! Totodile, we're needed...
+ Just my luck. I'm halfway there and some punk with dashingly red hair stops me and demands a battle. Well good sir I refu-!

+ http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/c/ce/Ani158MS.png v http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4a/Ani152MS.png Aww =(
Anyways, Totodile Leered and Scratched Chikorita to death =D Totodile grows to lv. 7. I'm starting to grow fond of this little guy. To bad I'm bound to the bug type...

+ The guy storms off. Shame, I wanted to ask him how he got his hair to look so godly. Anyway...
+ Back home, and inside the lab this punk ass Policeman presumes I'm guilty of theft! >=(
"Rule number one! 'Whoever did it will come back to the site.'" Bullsh*t that's the first rule of crime scene investigation!
+ Lyra saves me (her only use so far), and it turns out that the red-head was the culprit! =O And I thought so highly of him too. They ask me for the name, and if I recall correctly, it was Omega 6. Maybe it was my imagination though. Meh...
+ Eventually, I leave once more, this time starting my adventure. Lyra's second use - free pokeballs =D

+ http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/62/Ani167MS.png You're mine! >=)
Easy peasy. One Scratch takes it down to about 25% hp. One pokeball and...
I caught Spinarak! My main pokemon from here on in. Called him Spinner, becasue I can ;D
+ That should do me for one session =P Next step: train! Train!

Well I've finished my dragon type challenge so I'll start my dark type one



Started in New Bark Town where I once again picked Totodile as my starter
Since I'm using a rare type I had to grind it out with Totodile all the way to Violet City
The Sprout Tower was rough at the beginning but it got easier as Totodile leveled up
I defeated the Sprout Tower Elder and received the Flash TM
I took on Falkner with only Totodile and swept through his team as I won the Zephyr Badge
With one badge in hand I traded over my three egg Pokemon from my Platinum Version
Poochyena hatches from it's egg along with Sableye and Carvahna!
With three dark types at my disposal I headed back to Route 31 to do some training
After everyone was around level 9(Carvahna took forever) I headed back to Violet City and down to Route 32 where I did some more leveling before I entered the Union Cave
I had some trouble with the level 11 Onix in the cave but I managed to get through the rest of it with no problem
Exited the Union Cave and entered onto the very short and rainy Route 33 where I leveled up my team one more time before I continued
Made it to Azalea Town where I met Kurt who tells me that Team Rocket has been resurrected and is currently in Slowpoke Well cutting off Slowpoke tails and selling them
Kurt dashes off to the well and I follow behind him only to be left to defeat all of the Rocket Grunts myself
After finishing off all the Grunts I move on to the leader of the Slowpoke operation, Proton
Poochyena Evolves into Mightyena!
His Zubat was easy but it took me a while to take down Koffing. Once he was defeated Team Rocket fled the scene and I was given a fast ball from Kurt as a reward
Currently:Thought about challenging the second gym but decided to stop here

Second update :D

The Story so far:

+ Grinding up some levels wasn't too bad considering the fact I had nothing but a lv.2 spider =D At lv.7, I decided to press on towards Violet City.
+ No real problems. I struck down those who opposed me again and again =D Oh, and I caught my second slave:

+ http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/26/Ani019MS.png I eventually taught it Rock Smash. What a rubbish move =( Anyhow, I boxed it soon after.

+ More grinding. As much as I hate to say it, young Spinner has no chance against Falkner right now >.< Off to the Sprout Tower then.
+ The monks are a piece of cake =D I lost count of the amount of times I used Poison Sting, Constrict and Leech Life.
+ So I get to the top and, lo behold, it's my old friend Omega 6! He leaves, so I challenge the top monk.
+ I expected a slight challenge. Once again, Spinner destroys. It's only now I truly respect Insomnia's ability to block Hypnosis >=D This also results in Spinner reaching lv.15 and learning Night Shade. I love this spider.
+ Now for my reward! =D ... Flash. TM70. Before I end up beating the crap out of this guy, I leave with a magic rope like Omega 6 did.
+ I don't know what it is, but I'm compelled to give the Gym a go. Spinner wrecked trainer one's Spearow. Second trainer - while the first Pidgey wasn't too bad, I remember how much I hate Sand-Attack. Luck swings my way though and Poison brings it down. Why not have a go at Falkner? =D

+ http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/62/Ani167MS.png v http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/e4/Ani016MS.png
All it did was Tackle, so three Poison Stings saw it go down =D Now the tricky part:
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/62/Ani167MS.png v http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a9/017MS.png
It knows Gust =_=' And it killed Spinner.

+ Decided I should grind a bit more. Route 32's the place. I get impatient at lv.17 and try again.

+ http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/62/Ani167MS.png v http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/e4/Ani016MS.png
Again, it just Tackles. So two Poison Stings are enough. Now for it:
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/62/Ani167MS.png v http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a9/017MS.png
I survive Gust, and use Scary Face >=D Now Spinner's faster, so I try and get Pidgeotto poisoned. After many potions from me and Roosts from it, I finally succeed. Now it's matter of stalling. Which I also do successfully =D Spinner! The Spinarak that beat Falkner ^^.

+ I get my Badge, and head south to the Union Cave =D

Nice to see you back Dragonsfreak. Good luck in your Fire challenge. :)

EJ, add me on Electric challengers please? :)

Anyhoo's finally got off egg breeding on Platinum, so I can update for all you people.

Setting the bar - My First Electric Pokemon!

When we last left our hero, Professor Elm called saying something bad had happened at the lab. What was it? Stay tuned to find out!

*insert pokemon intro song here*

I awoke to find myself in some sort of trance, wishing to help Elm. Picking up the nearby Apricorn, I rushed back to Cherrygrove City, defending myself from wild Pokémon. Yet more poison madness from Weedle. Great. I arrived at Cherrygrove City, looking to heal up Kilauea.

I left Cherrygove City, on my way to help Elm. Suddenly I stopped. That boy. I had seen him before! He was the one staring into Elm's lab! It appeared that he had a Pokémon from Elm too. He has a Totodile? Ok. Kilauea started to tackle him about until Totodile was dead. He started up a grande talk about being the best before walking off. however, I swiped his trainer card and saw his name, which he didn't like much.

I ran all the way back to New Bark town, and when arriving at Elm's lab, it emerged that I, Joseph, above all people, was the notorious bandit who stole one of Elm's Pokémon. I was about to be given the death penalty, however, my lady friend, Lyra, bailed me out, and I decided to put the blame on someone else, that red haired kid. I think his name was Flare? Yeah, it was.

The police then left for the scapegoat, as did Lyra, presumably to play with her Marill. Elm and I had a heated discussion about everything I got from Mr. Pokémon, which evolved into him praising my skills by getting a Pokédex. He then suggested I go and complete the Gym challenge. I agreed. Somewhat.

I left to tell mum I was done with her and needed to do some soul searching. She still however, got my money for all she's done over the years. With Mum taken care of, I could now pursue my dream of being the number 1 Electric trainer. Off we go to route 29, where Lyra is waiting to show me how to catch a Pokémon. Ok...she fails with Marill anyway. Again, countless Pokémon come to take me on, and again Kilauea defeats them. Except one. I catch a Sentret for the purpose of getting a Pichu Egg.

Back to Cherrygrove city, where I can commence trading.

*dun dun dun dun*

Going to hatch my egg and grind a bit. Saved here.
