HEY, CHAMP TO BE, Welcome To The HeartGold/SoulSilver MONOTYPE CHALLENGE! This is a challenge where you will have to complete either game using ONE type only. Refer to the rules below before posting something that could easily be answered.

Rules:
1) Dual-Types are allowed.
2) You have beat your challenge when you defeat the Ellite Four, the Champion and ALL of the Gym Leaders, both Johto and Kanto. Don't forget red either.
3) You are allowed to do one type, even if someone else is.
4) It isn't a race, so no need to rush!
5) No trading please, unless it is for evolution purposes (There are exceptions to this).
6) Obviously, no cheating or hacking.
7) You may use emulators.
8) Only use Pokemon under your type
9) At least one Pokemon, must be caught before Violet City. If you have not caught a Pokemon of your type by then, use your starter until you do.
10) Please update frequently, and when you do, try to include what you've done, your team so far, and try to make it interesting.
11) No Legendaries.
12) If your team doesn't have a Pokemon that can use HM moves that you need, you are allowed 1-2 HM slaves that will be able to do those things.
13) You can have a Pokemon that isn't your type if it will evolve into that type at some stage
14) Have fun!
15)If you have a question, contact me via VM, PM, or on this thread.
16)ABSOLUTELY NO RULE BREAKING. I've completed this challenge before and I know it's possible without cheating. I'm considering a No tolerance policy so be wise and play clean.
17)Egg Rule Pokemon types that are rare/scarce warrant egg trading. This means the dragon, ice, dark, fighting, steel, ghost and electric types are the only ones to get eggs.

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

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

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

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

Steel: it's rare...lol

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

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

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

It is recommended you pick Totodile as a starter since he learns 4 of the 8 HM's. (1,3,5,7) Thanks to Porygon z for pointing that out.

I will start out with a starter (obviously) and catch a Spinarak and a Caterpie and evolve them before Violet gym for my first installment of the challenge (Scyther and Heracross will have to wait a bit).


My entry from the previously locked thread. I haven't updated yet, so that's what I plan to do here.




~All went as planned and I caught a Spinarak and a Caterpie and a Sentret (soon to be HM slave) before the first Gym and placed my starter in storage.
~I evolved the Caterpie into a Butterfree, making Faulkner a walk in the park.
~The trip through Union Cave was a challenge to say the least, with the Rock Pokemon and the Fire Breathers...
~I finally made it to Azalea and saved the Slowpoke. I went into the Gym and beat Bugsy (Butterfree learned Gust and made him easy).
~I made my way to Ilex Forest and had to fight my rival before going inside... My rival, Silver, had a Quilava by this time, and proved a worthy opponent (I still won though).
~Ilex Forest wasn't anything special, and I caught a Paras too!
~I taught the Sentret from before Headbutt which allowed me to catch a Heracross on Route 33.
~My Sentret evolved into a Furret and I now have my HM slave.
~I am now at the base of Goldenrod on Route 34, training my Heracross for the fight with Whitney. It has just learned Brick Break and will prove useful.

My team is as follows:

Heracross Level 19:
Brick Break
Aerial Ace
Horn Attack
Endure

Butterfree Level 20:
Tackle
Sleep Powder
Gust
Confusion

Spinarak Level 20:
Poison Sting
Night Shade
Leech Life
Shadow Sneak

Paras Level 8:
Scratch
Stun Spore
PoisonPowder
Cut

Furret Level 16:
Scratch
Headbutt
Fury Swipes
Quick Attack





So, this is my progress, and I hope I'm still in the contest.

Well, this is actually my first time playing Pokémon HeartGold or SoulSilver, so if I sound really surprised, that's why. I'm doing the Normal-type Challenge, for anyone that's forgotten.



Started the no$zoomer and the no$gba with it. Started up my Pokémon SoulSilver ROM, and set off.
Named myself 'Gold', as that's what 'Ethan''s name should be in all Pokémon games.
Walked downstairs, spoke to my mother, and she gave me, not only the ability to SAVE, but she gave me a bag, a card that I can clip badges to (like I'll ever need that), and... wait for it... OPTIONS! That's right, your mom gives you options. How, I don't know, but she did it.
Went outside, only to be attacked by a Marill. I fought valiantly, but I am but a human. Right before the Marill struck the finishing blow, it was whisked away by Lyra/Kotone/Where The **** Crys? My life was spared on this day, and I shall always remember it.
Spoke with this extremely rude redheaded boy. He kicked me, just for trying to talk to him! Can you believe that!? The nerve of some people. I think he hurt me too...

After being crying to my mom about mean, redheaded brats, I walked off to the Elm Pokémon Lab. There's still that redheaded mean guy standing outside the window, which makes me wonder if he's a stalker. And, if he's a stalker, who exactly is he stalking, and why? Prof. Elm? Does that count as reverse-pedophilia or something?
Got to play with the really cool PokéBall Machine. Rotate the balls, then look inside them!
Eventually got bored and chose a Totodile, to help me combat the Geodudes as I search for Teddiursa.
My new Totodile keeps following me, and showing off his fangs. Help...
The weird assistant, that has no first or last name, refuses to help me. Instead, he gives me some Potions. Ones that don't work on humans. So, if Totodile decides to kill me, and I somehow wound it, it can just take the Potions out of my bag and heal itself. How nice of him.
Saved three times, just like a separate forum said to do, to make sure the file is actually saved. I still don't get why Nintendo went to such great lengths to protect this game from piracy though. I already bought the game, I just have to wait for it to ship. So, I decided to play the ROM as I wait, only to get a handful of problems. This better not happen with Pokémon Black and White...
Walked out of the lab, resigned to my fate.
OH DEAR GOD, IT'S THE MARILL AGAIN! TOTODILE, KILL IT!
According to Lyra, the Totodile that wants to kill me is cute. Does no one see the killer beast that Totodile hides inside himself other than me?
Apparently, I should talk with my Pokémon. Why? They can only say their name, which means their conversations must suck. I know a thousand words, and my conversations still suck.
BRB, GONNA GO SHOW THIS KILLING MACHINE TO MY MOTHER.
My mother compliments Totodile, like everyone freaking else so far, then gives me my PokéGear. Whatever happened to just giving me a map, a Pokémon, and telling me to get the **** out of the house? That's the way I saw Pokémon Red at least.
My mother insists on explaining how to use a phone. Mom, I'm ten. I think I understand the basics of a phone. Why I have to go out with this bloodthirsty creature and hurt other animals is what really baffles me. Isn't this animal abuse?
Finally spoke to my Totodile. He was staring intently at the sky. When I reminded him that you can't kill the sky, he glared at me.
Why is there an exclamation point coming out of my skull? ...I blame Totodile.
Prof. Elm gave me his PokéGear number. Why, I'm not too sure. If this guy turns out to be a pedophile, I'm moving to Cherrygrove. He then tells me he'll call is 'something comes up', which sounds like an innuendo.

Walked out onto Route 101. The adventure begins! Started walking through the grass to reach Cherrygrove. I could have sworn someone said that Wild Poké...
OH DEAR GOD, WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT RAT!? Why is it purple!? Is that blood!? Kill it, Totodile!
Totodile killed it with minimal effort, showing its true nature as a feared, ferocious killer with no remorse for the living.
Okay, now a pigeon appeared. Not as strange as the killer rat, but not exactly normal. Why is it brown though? Aren't pigeons usually black or white?
That pigeon hit my Pokémon! This transgression can not go unpunished! Totodile, destroy!
Totodile learned Water Gun. Yeah, that's just what I needed. Give it more weapons to take me out with.
Talked to a guy that was waiting for a Pokémon that appears at night. Wouldn't it make more sense to just go to sleep during the day, wake up at night, and then go look for it?
I found a tree! It doesn't have anything on it though, except for leaves, which I can't take because.... wait, why can't I take the leaves!?
Found another rat, only this one looks more squirrel-like. Doesn't matter though, cause Totodile killed it before I could get a better look at it, that bastard.
After Totodile murdered all those poor animals, we finally reached Cherrygrove. Let me tell you, if this is how the entire journey is going to be like, I wanna retire now...

Well, I'm bored again, so I figure that I might as well continue where I left off.



After entering Cherrygrove, I was attacked by an extremely excited old man that wanted to, and I quote, 'teach me a few things'. Out of pure fear, I follow the man, but make sure that he doesn't walk behind me. He tries anything, Totodile's eating him instead of an Oran Berry.



Old man gave me some Running Shoes, which confuses me. So, in this entire world, you need to have these type of shoes to run? What happens if you don't; you get arrested? Yeah, because the police force in Pokémon World is obviously effective. That's why Giovanni, Team Rocket, Team Magma and Aqua, and Team Galactic were so successful. They weren't powerful, but the police, apparently, don't do anything.



Why exactly did the old man show me his house? Totodile... Okay, now he gave me a Map Card, which should come in handy when I'm trying to avoid these thinly veiled pedophiles. Once again, what the hell does the police force do?




Took a break to read the hilarious 'Let's Play' or Pokémon Firered. http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Pokemon%20FireRed/Update%201/index.htmlEveryone should read this version. Had me laughing for days.



Turned on my iPod, and searched through all my music to find the 'The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya' Original Soundtrack. I don't know why, but I keep finding Japanese music really catchy these days.



Walked in the tall grass, and found a brown pigeon, even browner than the other one. It growled at Totodile, which led to the devouring of its soul. Maybe I should keep Totodile on a leash...?



Found a Potion lying on the ground. Okay, seriously, who keeps dropping all this crap on the ground? Seriously, why don't you just take a Max Repel and spray it at the sky if you want to jump-start global warming, you prick.



Found another tree that refuses to give me things. If I had Cyndaquil, I would burn all these trees to the ground. Wait, wouldn't that mean I'm just as bad as the guy that keeps dropping items...

http://forum.vgcats.com/images/smilies/emotpsypopcy1.gif



This strange man literally starts screaming at me because I didn't barge into his house. He's so lucky Totodile doesn't like the taste of *******s, otherwise I'd have him attack this maniac. Then, he says something about our meeting being 'meant to be' or something. Can this be a meeting? I thought a meeting was when both parties actually give a damn what the other has to say. Dude gives me a box, as if I don't have enough crap to lug around. Does no one realize that a ten-year-old boy isn't that strong? I swear, this whole quest has to fall under some section of child-abuse.




I found an Antidote. I'm going to laugh if I someone dropped this after their Pokémon was Badly Poisoned.



This Youngster brat started yelling at me, even though he was getting his ass kicked in a battle. What a prick. And, to top it off, they won't let me through. Why I can't just pull myself over the ledge is anyone's guess. Maybe I just lack the upper body strength...



Another one of these damn mutated purple rats. Totodile, just... you know what? Screw it. Do whatever the hell it is that you do that kills everything you touch.



After the battle, if you can call it that, Totodile Leveled-Up. This proves that hurting other people makes you better than them. I would say that the rat can testify for that, but... dead rats tell no tails (It's a pun. Laugh, dammit).



I found another weird pigeon, but this one had sparkles around it at first. That means that it's somehow related to the sparkling vampire, Edward Cullen! I... must... kill!



Killed the worst character ever created, and just kept on walking. As I destroyed it, I think I saw some respect in Totodile's eyes. This proves that everything, be it human or Pokémon, hates Twilight. No exceptions.



Finally arrived at Mr. Pokémon's house. Seriously, there's no way that this guy's real name is Pokémon. No-freaking-way. He's named after an entire race of suped-up killing machines? Okay then. Just call me Gold Skynet while you're at it, you pretentious ass.



Mr. Pretentious gives me an Egg, that supposedly, has a Pokémon in it. So all Pokémon come from Eggs, huh? Explain Mewtwo then, know-it-all. Then, to top it off, the old guy forces me to rest at his house. Can you freaking believe it? I'm turning this Egg into an omelet the next chance I get.




Prof. Oak tells me that... wait. Wait, wait, wait. Hold on a damn second. Prof. Oak? That's two damn Prof. that I've met in just one day. How many of you are there? And why the hell are you in Johto? Isn't the Magnet Train broken?



Anyways, Prof. Oak gives me a Pokédex. I wonder if I can get WiFi service on this thing. Why didn't he just create a PokéGear Card that has all the data for the PokéDex and give that to me instead? People really don't think things through, do they? Then, this old Prof. orders me to go out and meet new Pokémon. Are you kidding? I've met five of them so far, one of which is a vicious killer, two of them are pigeons, and two are mutated members of the rat family. And you want me to go and see more of them? Right before he leaves, he demands my phone number. You know, it just seems like I should stop giving out my number to suspected pedophiles.



Prof. Elm calls me. Apparently, there's a problem at the Lab. Maybe the FBI finally found his hard-drive of CP, and he needs me to bail him out? Nah, I'm not that lucky.



On the way back, Totodile Leveled-Up and learned Rage. Wait... so Totodile didn't already know Rage? He was just that pissed off normally?! Oh crap...



Well, well, well. If it isn't the rude, redheaded kid. What the hell do you want? Did you just call me a wimp? My Pokémon kills things. What does yours do, other than play with the stupid leaf on its skull? And why the hell did your parents name you Passerby Boy? Do they seriously hate you that much? Judging by how much of a prick you are, I'd have to say yes.



I then proceeded to beat Passerby Boy like the redheaded stepchild that he really is. Serves him right for calling me a wimp. He asks me if I want to know who he is, then he doesn't even give me enough time to answer 'I don't give a crap'. Seriously, it's rude to ask questions, and then answer them without letting the other person talk. But I guess that's why your father abandoned you (SPOILER... wait... maybe that should have gone before the spoiler... crap).



Also, before he left, I robbed his punk-ass. Stole his trainer card, and saw his name. Apparently, his parents weren't cruel enough to name him Passerby Boy, instead choosing to name him Silver. And I'm Gold. And the last Pokémon League Champion was Red, while the Viridian City Gym Leader is Blue. What the hell are our parents smoking when they decided to name us after colors? Are all our parents hippies or something?



I can finally steal from trees! Take that, Nature! Man triumphs once again! Apparently, you can't rob the same tree twice in one day. I'll be back tomorrow, mother****er. Made it back to New Bark Town, and entered the Pokémon Lab.




Holy crap, it's a cop! Did Elm really get busted for CP? Nope, as usual, the cops try to arrest me cause I'm black. Not-Crys steps in and yells at the cop, saying how Silver was the real culprit, or something. The cop asks me for a name, and if Silver wasn't such a prick earlier, I wouldn't have said anything. Unfortunately, that isn't the case. Good luck with the Party Van coming after you, Silver.



After the 5-0 leave, I show Elm the Egg. He was freaking out badly. You'd swear he'd never seen an Egg before. Then he tells me he knew I was different, and that things are going to get fun. Needless to say, I quickly got the hell out of that Lab, and left New Bark Town. Stupid damn pedophile professors.



As soon as I leave town, Lyra hands me my balls, and teaches me how to catch monsters... like it's that freaking hard. You hit them, they get weak, then you take out your balls and throw them at the monster. Once again, I'm not an idiot. After giving me back my balls, Lyra leaves to god-knows-where. Good riddance. That Marill was about to get the ass-kicking of a lifetime after the stunt it pulled earlier.

Here's Day Three of my Pokemon HG/SS Mono-type Challenge, now with 100% more Userbar!



Boot up no$gba and began my Challenge where I left off, on Route 29.
Found a Sentret and, instead of having Totodile kill it, I captured it with a PokéBall. That means Totodile is leaving the team soon (thank God). Sentret is glaring at me, even though I basically stole its freedom. How strange. Just for that, you're walking next to me, Sentret. I nicknamed him Ms. Ferret, because of his evolution.
Found another Sentret, but I didn't like this one, so I had Totodile kill it. Sucks to be him, I guess.
Went up to Route 46, in search of Teddiursa.
Found yet another pigeon. Only difference is, this one's wings seem to be red. I caught it anyways, along with a Ratatta, just to say I did. Spearow, I will be using though, mostly due to Pidgey sucking badly. Ratatta sucks too, compared to Sentret, so don't expect to see Ratatta battling with me. Nicknamed Spearow 'Rage Bird', because he always looks pissed off at everything.

I have yet to find the bear I'm looking for, and I'm getting pissed off...
Became ENRAGED when I learned that you can only catch Teddiursa either near the end of the game, or by going through Dark Cave. I had Totodile slaughter everything that was on Route 46. Stupid damn Google said I could catch a Teddiursa on Route 46...
Started training Spearow, which basically consisted of me sending him out, then switching with Totodile, and netting free EXP.
Left Route 46, still pissed off that I was denied my Teddiursa. The reason I picked the Normal-type for this Challenge in the first damn place was because I thought I could get a Teddiursa early, then take it through the entire game. I was lied to.
Made it to Cherrygrove City without being attacked by Wild Pokémon, because at this point, they know better than to try.
Went to the PokéCenter, accessed the Computer, and dropped Totodile and Ratatta in there for good. Sorry, but this is Normal-types only, Totodile. And Ratatta... go die in a fire. You suck.
Logged off the computer and... HOLY ****! GLITCH, GLITCH, MOTHER****ING GLITCH! Everyone's body is completely gone! What the ****!? I gotta get the hell out of this place!
Got the hell out of that place.
Whew, I'm back to normal. Thank you, Jesus. You saved me back there, from the people with no bodies, and for that, I thank you.
Went north to Route 30, and got swarmed by Wild Pokémon after they realized my killing machine was dropped off in the PC. Time to introduce them to Spearow then.
That poor Weedle never had a snowball's chance in hell.
Neither did that Kakuna.
I encountered a Wild Pidgey. Sadly, it was not a Shiny Pidgey, so it had to be eliminated to draw out the Shiny Pidgey.
You know, this is one thing that bothers me. Why is it that Weedle don't have the ability 'Poison Point'? I mean, you can see the freaking poisonous barb on its skull, can't you? Also, why doesn't Sentret get the 'Pickup' ability? Pokémon is ****ing confusing, I'll tell you that much.
Fought Youngster Joey, and the little prick took my PokéGear Number. Just great. Now I get to look forward to great calls such as 'My Ratatta killed a Pidgey', or 'My Ratatta is so strong', or whatever else the ******* has on his mind. Note to self: every time Youngster Joey calls for a rematch, accept. Then, methodically murder his Ratatta to teach him to shut his damn mouth. I should have told him no, but I couldn't for some reason. Maybe I'm too nice?
Sent some Prize Money back to Mom, because Gold is a good boy!

Okay, I'm still pretty pissed off at the lack of Teddiursa in my party, so I'm calling it quits for today. Tomorrow, Violet City and Sprout Tower will be taken by storm!

Gender: Female
Type: Normal
Attacks: Tackle/Growl/Defense Curl/Quick Attack
Level: 7

Future Team Thoughts: Well, as soon as I can, I've gotta catch a Bellsprout. It can, if I remember correctly, Cut and Flash, which is exactly what I need to get through Dark Cave. Rock Smash can be taught to Totodile (which will also be my Surf/Whirlpool/Waterfall HM SLAVE). Fly, I can teach to my Spearow (which should be a Fearow around the time I get to the Fly HM), and Strength I can teach to Sentret (which would be a Furret at that point), to give it a hard hitting Normal-type attack. That takes care of all seven HMs, and one TM. The next Pokemon I'll be catching is an Aipom, which I can get on Route 46 (SOUTH, unlike Teddiursa), and then a Tauros and Miltank, followed by Teddiursa. If I can't find a Miltank, I'll settle for a Snubble. Doing the Normal-type Challenge is freakin' difficult. I have to rely on Furret, Fearow, and Ambipom (all of them should have evolved by then) until I get to Ecruteak, and then I have to go catch a Tauros and Miltank/Snubbull. Normal-types get a lot of TMs, but they're so freaking far away from each other. Troublesome...

Edit: Okay, after looking over the GameFaqs FAQ, I found out that Meowth can be caught on Route 38/39, and that Snubbull has a 1% chance of showing up without a Swarm going on. Actually, maybe I'll just say no to both of them and get my free Eevee from Bill. I mean, Eevee's stats aren't terrible, and it does get Bite, which would help with Morty... Togepi is another option, and a rather good one. If I can get my hands on a Dawn Stone early on, Togekiss could easily become my main Pokemon. Looks like this Sixth Slot is completely up for grabs. I suppose I can train all of them, and then just change the slot whenever I get bored of with a Pokemon. It's always good to have backups, right?

Edit #2: I just found out that the only way I can get a Dawn Stone is through either Mt. Silver or the Pokeathalon. FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU---

Started the fight with whitney telling myself : *Omg , i've heard she's hard , what's my level 24 Quagsire and my 22 slowpoke gonna do ? Then the battle starts. She throws out clefairy . I'm like okay... what... wait'a'minute ! I put clefairy to sleep. I do 5 Curses. When it wakes up , I kill it . Then comes Miltank and i'm like Oh boy , here's the BAWSS. Then guess what? Slowpoke is Oblivious so she couldn't attract Him :) and her stomp attack? It did 4 damage LAWLS so i just 2 Hit KOed her miltank with heabutt . yeah... a 3 minute battle I think... x).

Beat all the Trainers on Route 30, and moved onto Route 31.
Found a Bellsprout on my first patch of grass on Route 31. Spearow killed it shortly afterwards. Goddammit.
Caught a LV. 3 Bellsprout with minimal effort. I should really get a Hoothoot, just to have a Pokemon with Hypnosis. Say what you want about HootHoot's stats, but it's a decent early-game Sleep-inducer. Gastly is a much better replacement once you can get it though, especially considering its evolution's speed (Gengar) is through the roof.
Met up with Kotone in this weird guardhouse building. She, instead of giving me balls this time, gave me a V.S. Recorder, which is basically a dumbed-down version of a video camera. I'd say it's a great gift, but I'd be lying.
I found some strange blonde that wants Shards to trade for Berries. So, he wants me to give up sharp objects that I can use to defend myself, for berries? I never knew there were drugs in the Pokemon world. The more you know...
Entered the PokeCenter to heal up, but I didn't deposit Bellsprout in a Box yet. I'm gonna need him for Flash soon, and Cut later on, so I don't see the harm in keeping him around.
I've gotta say, I'm really digging the revamp of Violet City. Looks nice, and I like the streetlights.
Entered Sprout Tower and placed Spearow at the front of the pack. Time to kick some Bellsprout ass.
Got my first call from Joey... at 10:40 PM. Are you freaking kidding me? You know what he called me about? He called me, to tell me how he beat a Hoothoot. No, I am not joking. This little asstard called me to tell me about a Pokemon that he's beaten, one that I've beaten countless times before. I'm deleting this prick from my PokeGear. Call me in the middle of the night again and watch what happens.
PokeGear won't let me delete numbers! Gayest... thing... ever.
Took out all my rage on the Sages in Sprout Tower. I'm starting to feel better. Oh yeah, I met Silver again in the Tower. He's still just as much of a prick as he was last time, only this time, he didn't battle me. Scared much?
Beat the Elder with my LV. 10 Sentret. Who's the wise one now, old man? Said old man gave me TM 70, which is FLASH. I'll be using that on Bellsprout, and then, after kicking Faulkner's ass, we'll be taking a trip into Dark Cave.
Walked down Sprout Tower instead of wasting a free Escape Rope, returned to the PokeCenter, SAVED my game, and took a small break to read the 'Let's Play' of Firered that I was reading earlier.
Went to school, cause real life is such a drag.

UPDATE:


I beat Whitney with Heracross, though it was really close. I thought the her Rollout would have got me, but Heracross's defense was higher than I thought, so I won!

In the Ecruteak City gym, my Spinarak evolved and made things a lot easier.

I beat Morty with Ariados and Butterfree thanks to Ghost/Psychic type moves! He put up little challenge until Gengar, who KO'd my Ariados (who had taken quite a beating before now) with Shadow Ball, Butterfree stepped up to the plate and, after putting it to sleep, took down Morty's Gengar and won me the badge!

I am currently breeding for an adamant Scyther to get a Scizor, the Metal Coat will come from an unlucky Magneminte who have been rumored to hold them. Upon trading for an evolution with no exp., I am expecting it to learn Bullet Punch, starting up a good moveset and making my team all that stronger. As I am allowed up to 2 HM Slaves, I plan on replacing Furret with a water type to take advantage of the HM's bugs cannot use.



My team so far:

Heracross Level 23:
Brick Break
Aerial Ace
Horn Attack
Endure

Butterfree Level 23:
Tackle
Sleep Powder
Gust
Confusion

Ariados Level 26:
Poison Sting
Night Shade

After some grueling subjection to Sprout tower, My Totodile went into shock (@ level 12) when attempting to help train my newly caught Zubat. Since the experience, Totodile refuses to battle ever again. He'll be my HM slave instead. Zubat has gained an interest in slaughtering Bellsprouts and Rattatas.

Short Update:


After only 12 eggs, I got my Adamant Scyther! It's a male, and has Technician (the ability I was hoping for!). It knows Leer, Endure, Brick Break, and Aerial Ace. I bred with my Heracross which explains the strange moves. I don't know the IV's and I don't know how to find them out, but I don't much care honestly.

Now to initiate the complicated trade process. I only have Diamond, so I have to trade it to Diamond without a Metal Coat (never got one from the few Magnemites I caught... But I have on on my Diamond file, so it's all good anyway) and trade back with one to get a Scizor with Bullet Punch (starting the awesome moveset).

More updates to come, peace!

And the game begins for me again. Let's pick up where I left off, shall we?


Wow. I've gotta say, Violet City looks nice during the afternoon. I could definitely get used to this place. Sadly, I'm a man with a (unwanted) mission, so no resting for me.
Entered the Violet City Gym, intent on kicking Faulkner's ass badly.
I love this Gym! It's got a freaking elevator, and you battle atop high-beams. But, this is no time to start admiring the scenery, so I take a few steps forward, and step right into the line of sight of a Bird Catcher. Sentret, it's time to destroy!
Abe, your Level 9 Spearow is no match for my Level 11 Sentret!
Defeated the next Trainer before Faulkner, before challenging the man himself. Oh, this is gonna be good. The faster I kick your ass, the faster I get to move on to the next Gym.
During battle, I gain a Level, to reach Level 12! However, Faulkner's Pidgeotto is still a level ahead of us. No matter! If Sentret should fall, Spearow will gladly take his place.
Mother****ing Pidgeotto has Roost! Damn you, Pidgeotto!
Holy ****! Sentret died to a Tackle attack, and, in exchange, Spearow used Fury Attack FIVE TIMES, one of which was a Critical Hit!
I healed Spearow with a Potion, and Pidgeotto responds with a Tackle.
Pidgeotto uses Gust, and I just barely live, with about 2 HP left. 2 is more than enough, as Fury Attack strikes, smacking down this annoying bird once and for all, and earning me a Zephyr Badge!

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



Yay! Also, as a gift, he gives me a TM! TM 51 to be exact, which I guess I'll have to save for Togetic/Togekiss. And speaking of Togekiss...
As soon as I walk out the Gym, I get a call on my PokeGear from Prof. Elm! Time to get me a Togepi Egg! And for once, I actually plan on keeping it with me!

As soon as I reach the PokeMart, I spot a suspicious man dressed in red. Naturally, I walk up and talk to him, only for him to ask me whether or not my name was Gold. Obviously, I answer in the positive, only for him to give me a Super Potion! Thanks, Mom!
Got my Egg from the Lab Assistant, the prick that refused to help me when Totodile was out for my blood.
Picked up ten PokeBalls while I'm at the Mart, since I might need them soon. I'll have to catch an Aipom after finding the Move Tutor for Headbutt, so I figure that I might as well stock up on my balls while I'm here.
After walking out of the PokeMart, I was basically assaulted by a kimono wearing woman. Seriously, all the weird crap happens to me, always. First, I get introduced to about three pedophiles in one day, then one of them gives me a rabid animal, another gives me a machine that I can't hack to play games, or use to get on the Internet, another tries to pawn off his old shoes to me, a Marill tried to kill me in broad daylight, got handed my balls, and found a mutated purple rat. Did I take some LSD before I left New Bark Town?
After the strange lady leaves, I walk off to the Pokemon Center, intent on healing up my pals. Now, off to Dark Cave! Oh... wait. I don't have any Pokemon to deal with Geodude. Actually, I was hoping that Faulkner would give me the TM for Mud-Slap. This... could be problematic.
Set my sights southward bound, ready for the Level Grinding of my life. If I'm going to get through this cave with a Sentret and Spearow, I'm going to need all the levels I can get.
Okay... the Ruins of Alpha are creepy looking. Even more so than the original G/S/C.
I'm tempted to teach my Sentret Rock Smash to get through this, and any other caves that will appear in the future. However, I have no idea when I may, or may not, get the TM Brick Break. I guess I should look it up...
Yeah, apparently, the only way I'm getting it is going through Battle Frontier, earning 48 Points, and then getting it. Yeah... no dice. Sorry Sentret. Once we've reached Blackthorn City, I'll have you forget this terrible attack. Until then, you'll just have to grin and bear it. Hey, at least it has a chance to lower defense.
... Are you freaking kidding me? Sentret can't even learn Rock Smash!? Are you ****ing kidding me!? When the **** was this decided, and by who!? So you're telling me that Sentret can't learn Rock Smash, but Bidoof can? Go to hell, Nintendo. C'mon, Sentret. We're leaving. This is ********...
Battled my way through a vicious purple snake, only to be challenged. I've gotta say though, I'm liking Zubat's new sprite. I may have to start a Poison-type Challenge after this, just for that.
Registered Picnicker Liz in my PokeGear because a, she's a chick, and b, she can't possibly be more irritating than Joey and his damn Ratatta. I don't even answer that bastard's calls anymore.
Found some Hoppip, which were killed in the name of science.
Found a Mareep, which I can't use during this Challenge :(. Sadly, I have to end you, Mareep. I need to save my PokeBalls for Pokemon I intend on using, and sadly, that isn't you. Goodnight, sweet prince.
After being forced to end one Mareep, another showed up. I don't know what to do... Spearow... make it painless.
OH GODDAMMIT! Another one. They have to be doing this on purpose at this point.
Finally, I encountered an Ekans. Wait... don't Ekans eat Spearow? Oh sh-!
I believe that I just rolled a Critical. Sorry, Ekans. Looks like you'll have to try harder.
Found a Great Ball lying in the grass. Who throws these things away?
Found a TM for the attack Bullet Seed. Once again, nothing on my team can use it.
Taught Spearow Pursuit, since it could come in handy once we reach Morty.
This annoying fat man keeps pestering me to buy a SlowpokeTail. Then, after I turn lard-ass down, he tells me to scram! How rude! I should kick your ass for that, but I'm a benevolent man, so I shall turn the other cheek... for now.
Made it to the PokeCenter outside of Union Cave. Healed up my team, and departed for Azalea Town.
After a battle with a Bird Catcher, Sentret evolved at the tender level of 15! This is great news for me, since this gives me a Pokemon with a decent chance of combating the Rock-type Pokemon in Union Cave. Spearow can take them out too, with Leer+Fury Attack, provided they don't have Rock Throw, which they won't until around Level 11 (for Geodude at least).
Grinded until reaching Level 16 for both Furret and Spearow. Saved my game, and turned off no$gba. Today was a good day.

Quick update. I've forgone fighting the 8th gym until I get my second party the mid 50s. So far I've raised my Pokemon thusly:

52 Magneton
47 Exeggutor
43 Arcanine
22 Noctowl (still)
43 Rhydon
40 Kingdra

I was working on getting Exeggcute to 47 for Psychic, that way I could evolve him into Exeggcutor for Leaf Storm.

Got my Noctowl to 35 now, and I got Arcanine to 45. I've been getting **** on by Blue in the 8th gym. I'm thinking of just taking my Bug team out again and finishing up the game. =/

Damn Red is gonna be a beast.

An astounding battle took place starring Z's Zubat and Falkner's team. Zubat silences Pidgey with little effort. When it came to Pidgeotto, there was struggle and a lot of luck involved. In the end, no potions were required, thus Z obtained her first badge and TM gift.

As per normal gameplay, the mystery egg was obtained with the second Pokemon of her team: Togepi (Togekiss). A fair amount of solitary training and searching later, Z stumbled upon her third necessary team member Hoppip. Caution took play in catching the mischievous lightweight bulb. Hoppip was trained in-turn through stubborn perfection and endless patience.

The 'Flying Spirit' team now heads for the damp tunnels of Union Cave.

As for Totodile? He wanted to remain in Z's PC where it was safe from any Bellsprouts.

Through a cave and under the rain- Z's team grew to the town of Azalea. The group saved a few Slowpoke, battled Rival S (Silver) and found some missing Farfetch'd. Bugsy's gym was a breeze when it came to Z's newly evolved Golbat; the high levels allowed Togepi to train solo for a few rounds.

After obtaining their second badge, the group doubled back to present Togepi to Professor Elm. Hoppip took her turn in evolution and became Skiploom. Totodile wanted to help with the exception of just being an observer, so he learned Cut. Elm rewarded Z with the Everstone, and the Flying Spirit team traversed onto Goldenrod.

Z began saving up to obtain the fourth party member Dratini. There wasn't much in the way of Golbat and Skiploom's competitive natures, although it made Z wonder if it was out of self-growth or jealousy that made the duo battle so. Whitney's team fell easy prey to the combination of Skiploom/Golbat, thus Z's team was rewarded their third badge. They cleaned up a stubborn tree and began to expand their training beyond Ecruteak. Skiploom exceeded Golbat's chain and blossomed into Jumpluff.

It might have been logged too soon- Crobat emerged 1.5 levels later. At least she and Jumpluff are determined in these expeditions...one way or another.

The team adventured to the lighthouse, after welcoming Dratini: plowing through trainers and facing the ocean's horizon in order to save the ill Ampharos. Cianwood's pharmacist was more than happy to lend a strong remedy, thus Z and her group migrated back to Olivine. A female Mantine was picked up along the way.

Back-tracking to Ecruteak, Flying Spirit team faced Silver for a third time. There was potential struggle with that Magnemite of his, but nothing so bad that Crobat and Jumpluff couldn't pull through [in the end]. Crobat proved his worth in Ecruteak's Gym: enduring damage only once. Natu, the final member, was caught in the Ruins of Alph with one toss of a Pokeball.

Flying Spirit is undergoing extensive training currently.

The Fourth Day


Furret is able to learn Rock Smash, which gives it a great tool for fighting against Rock and Steel-type Pokemon. Not the best choice, obviously, but you've gotta take what you can get, right? Replaced Foresight with Rock Smash, seeing as Spearow, which will have evolved into a Fearow at that point, will be more than enough to take on the Ecruteak Gym.
Got a Shell Bell after Furret broke a rock near Union Cave. Yay.
Gave the Shell Bell to Furret for Union Cave, and I'll give it to Spearow once we get to Azalea Town.
Went into Union Cave, and took an immediate north turn. I plan on exploring as much of the cave as possible on the first go.
Returned to the above floor, and went southward this time.
Nabbed a TM (Rock Tomb), X Defend, X Attack, and a Great Ball. Not bad, as far as cave plundering goes.
As soon as I take a step outside, I realize its pouring outside. How strange...
I've gotta admit, that as cheesy as it sounds, the rain looks beautiful. Maybe its just one of my oddities, but I've always found the rain extremely calming, preferring to walk in rain storms than walk during a cloudless day.
Heh heh, Machop looks like he's trying to be a superhero.
After entering the border of Azalea Town, the rain died down, which made me sad. I walked in on a conversation with a Team Rocket member, and an older unknown male. They were talking about Team Rocket breaking up, then the Rocket hit the older male. That's kinda mean...
I went into town and entered the PokeCenter, healing up my Furret and Spearow. Gotta take care of my buddies, right?
I got a call from Liz, so I figured it would be polite to answer. She called me to talk about another guy, which is something no guy ever wants, ever. Not only is it awkward, but it kind of makes you feel crappy. Just a little tip for the girls reading this...
Left the PokeCenter and spoke with Kurt. He ran off to Slowpoke Well in a huff, which is kind of dangerous. I suppose I should back him up, in case anything happens.
Ran to Slowpoke Well, only to find both Kurt and the Rocket 'Guard' gone. They must have gone inside.
Well, it looks like Kurt took a tumble down the well, hurting his back badly. I suppose that means I'll be taking over. I go deeper into Slowpoke Well, and begin my first battle against a Team Rocket Grunt.
Kept moving through the Well, defeating all Rockets that dare attempt to stop me.
Walked up to a strange, blue-haired Rocket. Apparently, his name is Proton, and he's a Rocket Executive. That means he's easily superior to the Grunts that I've trashed. I wonder by how much.
Hm, I guess I was wrong. Mr. Executive wasn't difficult at all. Kurt congratulated me on a job well done, after all the Rockets escaped simultaneously. Maybe they all carry Escape Rope, so they can make a quick getaway?
Gave Kurt two Apricorns, and, in exchange, he'll make them into balls. He's basically taking my nuts, and turning them into balls. Nice.
I'm gonna take a small nap, but the next thing on the list is my duel with the Trainers of the Azalea Town Gym.
Just like the common cold, I’m back… back again. Guess who’s back? … I’ll stop now.
Azalea’s Gym looks mighty different than the way I remember it. I don’t remember a spider taking me from platform to platform.
With the death of a Beedrill, my Spearow gains another Level, learning the devastating Flying-type attack, Aerial Ace. Sadly, the Spearow family doesn’t get Brave Bird (at least, not that I know of), so Aerial Ace will have to do for the rest of the game, or at least until I get the Fly HM. Or until I learn Drill Peck.
Solved the mystery of the spider platform, and stood up against Bugsy. Your bugs will be swept away in a daring gust of wind, Bugsy!
Beat Bugsy in a blaze of glory. I’ll give the kid this much though; his Scyther was a real pain in the ass. Quick Attack was his main weapon, but I should be happy he didn’t teach it Swords Dance. Got me a new badge!

Sweet! Got the TM for U-turn, which I’ll be saving. For who, I’m not sure. I know that Spearow/Fearow can learn it, as can Furret and Aipom. The only question is who needs it more? I’ll save it for now, and use it when I feel that it should be used.
Kurt took my Black Apricorns, and gave me back my Heavy Balls. Isn’t that nice of him? Even though, it’s kind of weird that an old man is handing me my balls, heavy ones at that. I liked it better when Lyra did it…
Only after the Gym Battle do I realize that I forgot to switch the Shell Bell from Furret’s possession to Spearow’s. Goddammit.. I’ve got a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach, so I’m gonna make like a tree and get the hell out of here. Wait… I think I told that joke wrong.
Oh son of a *****! Can’t you just leave me along, you red-headed prick!? I don’t care if you want to be strong, I don’t care that you stole your first Pokémon, and I don’t care that you hate Team Rocket. Leave already! For Christ’s sake, haven’t you done enough?
Apparently, Silver didn’t want to listen, so I beat him like his father should have done when Silver started his emo tantrums. Also, I have a lot of nerve, for just being in a damn town. Geez, what an *******.
Silver says something about strong and weak, and then runs off again. I should have that bastard put down. He’s becoming way too troublesome.
Entered Ilex Forest, only to find out some noob lost a Farfecth’d. Great, now I’ve gotta go find it. I sneak up on the pesky bird and capture it, bringing it back to the (failing) Trainer. Wait a minute… there are two Farfetch’d? Damn kid… you really do suck.
OH SHI-! The Egg hatched today! It’s a Togepi! Hell yes!
Caught the second Farfetch’d, the little prick. I swear, my job keeps changing. First, I was a delivery-boy, and then an information gatherer, then a Trainer, then a Farfetch’d capturer. I swear, this is the last time I do any good deed for anyone.
Finally, the ‘Cut Master’ shows up, gives me the HM for Cut, and leaves. Good thing too, since they were starting to piss me off. I’m already in a foul mood because of the redhead, and I don’t need any more crap from anyone today. I just wanna go, and catch my Aipom in peace.
I still need Headbutt, which means going deeper into this god forsaken forest. Damn it all.
Okay, found a random fat guy in a forest. Not really surprising, until the guy STARTS RAMMING A DAMN TREE! Why?! Why ram a tree? What the hell did it do to you, *******?! Apparently, he was using Headbutt, which makes him even stupider than I thought. He was ramming his skull into a tree… I hope he gets a concussion and falls into a coma. He’d deserve it.
Had Furret forget Scratch to learn Headbutt. Now, BACK TO CHERRYGROVE!
Some ******* starting screaming at me. Or roaring. One of the two. Anyways, he gave me a free TM.
After rechecking my guide, it turns out that Aipom can be caught in Azalea Town… damn it. Back to Azalea Town it is.
Found an Aipom on my very first Headbutt! I threw a Great Ball at it, since my Pokémon would end up slaughtering it if they attacked.
This stupid damn Aipom refuses to get in the ****ing ball! So I killed it. An example has been made out of that ****er.
Caught the next one on my first Pokéball. Looks like she knew better. It has Pickup, which means that it’ll have Technician when it evolves (I think).
Togepi evolved rather quickly, only at Level 10. Talk about friendship… I got a new Togetic!
After checking Togetic’s nature, I found out that it does have Serene Grace, and not Hustle! Yes!
Now I’ve got three-out-of-four members of my final team, Fearow/Furret/Ambipom(Current Aipom)/Togekiss(Currently Togetic). Now all that’s left is to catch a Teddiursa, which I’ll do after getting Rock Smash/Strength (whichever is needed to get to the higher part of Route 46), and catch a Tauros near the outskirts of Ecruteak City. After that, I’ll catch a Miltank and Snubbull if I can manage it. Jigglypuff don’t show up till later, and neither do Clefairy, so I guess Fearow/Furret/Ursaring/Ambipom/Togekiss/Tauros will have to keep me safe until Mt. Moon, or a Snubbull swarm.
Saved my game after a hard day’s grinding, and went to sleep.

hey this seems really cool but i was just wondering if i could trade a skorupi egg over at the very begging and use it as a starter for poison???

That usually depends on the availability of your type. Poison types aren't very scarce because you get access to zubat, and weedle (depending on version). You can get an oddish in Ilex Forest as well, gastly are also available, and Koffing.

So that is a no on Skorupi. If you were to be using a rarer type such as Ice, steel, or dark (which are all pretty rare at first) then bringing in eggs would be allowed.

*sigh* Well, after a long time full of trouble-shooting and other such business, I finally got a good, working ROM of SoulSilver. So, let's get right to it:

...I suddenly find myself in some strange room. An old man in a gold jacket is the only other person in here (nothing suspect about that at all!). He starts going on a tangent about some world, but since I'm ADD I get distracted by this weird blue thing that pops out from some sort of ball from his hands. Afterward, he starts questioning me. He's a cop! I knew that catch up with me someday! I answer all his questions with false answers (except for the gender one; that one's pretty obvious on its own), right down to my name! I said it was SWiseii instead of SonofWiseii! Hah, see if they can figure that one out!

Anyway, before long I'm in my room. I check my email to see if I've gotten anything from Deadliest Warrior: The Aftermath yet, but no dice. Instead, I get another email from that annoying girl everyone insists is my best friend. I head downstairs, and mom gives me some stuff, including...my bag. Wow, thanks mom...

I immediately save since it's probably smart to do that often on a shaky ROM like this. I head out the door and...DANGIT, NOT ANOTHER ONE!! It's another blue thing like the one that cop had! Someone, save me! I don't care who it is, just get me away from this vicious blue whatever! Well, thankfully that Lyra not-really-my-best-friend-girl was nearby, and got it away from me. I decide to pick up the pace then, and go through this a little faster.

I get to the lab to see *shudders* Professor Elm. What's wrong with him? I have a feeling he does meth or something and, in a drug induced psychosis, touches little children. I tell myself to make this a quick meeting, which it is. I gotta go see the inapproprietly named Mr. Pokemon to get some egg I'll never want, and take along some creature that looks like a baby dinosaur...with a leaf on its head. So what, is it a plant or an animal? Ah well, I don't wanna hang around this guy any longer, so I get out of there fast before he shows me his secret stash of marijuana, but not before an Aid, who appologizes for the Professor's awkward behavior, and gives me a potion to show how sorry he is.

Nothing much happens on Route 29, although I do get a level up and find another potion. After a while, I make it to Cherrygro--Oh my gosh! Pedo-Alert! Pedo-Alert! Some old man comes up to me to "show me around," or something like that, and you gotta know something's wrong with this picture. Despite his age, he's apparently faster than me, most likely due to the fact that I'm lazy. After he "show's me around," he shows me his house (Oh dear,) and gives me a "special treat," the shoes off his feet. Well, I get out of here fast with these Running Shoes, but not before he gives me another "treat," this time a map card for my PokeGear.

I start up Route 30, but as I walk past some house, I guy comes out and shouts at me because I didn't come visit him. NOT ANOTHER ONE!!! Ah well, I get away relatively unscathed this time (all I was forced to take was a box for some strange berry), and head further up the Route. As I go, I find a couple of trainers battling, and decide to do exactly as my mom told me to do when I see two people fighting: bet money on the winner. One of them is wielding a purple rat, which looks way stronger than the wierd pigeon the other guy has, so I naturaly put about ten cents in PokeDollars (about $1539) on him. Man, he'd better win or I'll be ticked off!

I finally make it to Mr. Who's-its house, getting another good level up before hand. He hands me that egg I heard about earlier, and let's me rest there (...). Then...it's that cop! You'll never take me alive! As I run away though, he tosses some strange device that I keep out of spite. But as I'm leaving, Elm calls telling me he's got a problem. He probably forgot where he left his bag of heroine again.

I head back to Cherrygrove, taking a wide turn around the Apricorn Box Guy's house, and heal up quick. As I try to go back through Route 29, though, some random kid with red hair runs into me and forces me to battle him. He keeps calling me a wimp, so I assume he's another nut-job. Anyway, his Cyndiquil-fire-porcupine-thing is no match for my amazing leaf-headed-dinosaur! Out of spite, I knock it out with a Razor Leaf Chikorita learned at level six since it would be weak against his Pokemon.

As he runs away stating that he'll be the most powerful trainer in the world, I jack his Trainer Card just to make him mad, and guess what his parents named him? Nester! Ah man, I feal sorry for the kid. He gets it back, and I make my way back to the lab.

Inside I find an actual cop interrogating Elm. Man, I guess they found his stash of PCP. Tough luck for him. I go up and the cop immediately recognizes my face from the wanted posters! DARN IT!!! But thankfully at the last minute Lyra comes up and tells the Officer I'm innocent. Whew, thank goodness the Police are forced to believe everything little girls say or I'd be a sitting duck!

I get out of the lab (that place still gives me the creeps), and start back on Route 29...only to be stopped by Lyra, who forces me to watch her capture another one of those purple rats. Afterward, she hands me...my balls. Great, thanks Lyra.

As I get back to Cherrygrove, I heal at the Pokemon Center and save a total of seventy times (no, not really), before shutting it off, feeling somewhat accomplished.

So, let's recap on what happened today (In no particular order.)

I've met at least three pedophiles, one is probably on drugs, one gives me "special gifts," and the third wants everyone to stop by his house. I've been handed my bag and my balls by my mother and my supposed best friend (respectively), I've met a narcissistic kid who calls himself "Nester," or "Passerby Boy," and I'm being forced to train a dinosaur with a leaf on its head...Oh God, please help me!

EDIT:

Don't worry about it, long updates are better than no updates.

I picked up where I left off in my challenge and I began to participate in the Pokeathlon challenge so I can buy a heart scale. With this heart scale, I can teach my piloswine the attack ancient power and rumor has it he'll evolve by knowing it. I won the speed event three times in a row, and purchased a heart scale. I gave it to the creepy fat guy that knows all the pokemon moves and Piloswine remembered it perfectly. I then fed it some sort of candy because he seemed hungry and what do you know he evolved! Amazing, watch out Elite 4, I'm ready for you!

A minor Update:
After finally catching a kid hopped up on candy,I finally reached Kanto. I found myself in a strange town named Vermilion city.
After wandering about the town, and talking to stangers I find the gym, however it was protected by a shrub.
I figured I could just cut the darn thing down. Unlucky, none of my pokemon could learn cut >.>
I quickly ran to the local pokemon center extracted my HM slave, Entei and cut the shrub down.
Entering the door I see rows and rows of garbage cans and learn after battling the gym trainer that the cunning
gym leader has hidden secret switches in them. To my luck the first two I touch are the right ones.
I proceeded to the gym leader, Lt. Surge.
I quickly take his first Electrode down in one shot with a Rock Throw his next two are suicidal and use
explosion on my poor Rocky. Rocky faints and I switch to Nidoking. It's a head to head fight with Lt. Surge's Raichu,
Nidoking uses Earth Power and 1HKO's it.
Thus earning me my

Guess what?
http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w117/ChidoriAcv2/815f7900.jpg

I defeated the E4 on my first try. Ho-Oh and Gyarados are there because I forgot to drop them off. I use them for fly, waterfall, whirpool and strength.

Let me do a quick summary: Will was relatively easy since 4 out of 5 his pokemon were weak to ice types. Koga lost entirely to Mamoswine the beast. Bruno was incredibly hard but I manage to luck out a few times and defeated him narrowly. The same for Karen, she was extremely hard (harder than Lance IMO) I thought her Houndoom would rape my team but Mamoswine managed to outspeed it and use Earthquake. The rest was cake.

The champion was actually one of the easier battles. All his pokemon except for Charizard and Gyarados were weak to ice. Gyarados defeated my Jynx easily, so I was forced to spam blizzard and icy wind with Glaceon. Once that was done, he sent out Aerodactyl so I switched out for Mamoswine. Amazingly, his rock slide missed 2 times in a row and I killed it with an ice shard spam. His charizard was up next so I sent out Dewgong to battle it. I did some decent damage before he switched out to dragonite. I killed it with ice beam but I got smacked with thunder before it happened. He sent out his other dragonite so I switched to Glaceon. Glaceon killed it one icy wind and now he sent out Charizard. I switched in Dewgong but it fell to an air slash. I thought I was in trouble when I sent out Mamoswine but Charizard's fire fang missed. I landed an Ancient power and beat Charizard. After that, apparently ancient power boosted all my stats. And now it was Lance's final pokemon, his lvl 50 dragonite. I attacked with ice shard which brought him down to the orange but he landed a huge fire blast on it. Thanks to the ancient power boost it survived so I finished it with one final ice shard.

As you can see, luck was definitely on my side here. XD Off to Kanto!!

I will do a monotypical challenge of the Steel variety.
Am I allowed to use pokemon that are not Steel types but evolve into Steel types? Because I'd quite like to have a Forretress, Steelix and Scissor (or however you spell it :/).

If I'm not allowed to, I'll do a different type, because then I'd only be able to use, like, Magnemite.

Actually, I think instead of doing Steel I'm going to do Bug. I've never really used bug before, and I still get Scizor and Forretress, which were the two pokemon I was doing Steel for.

.EJ
April 23rd, 2010, 11:04 AM
Alright I'll update. Good luck!

Quick update: I challenged Vermilion's gym, and came across a man known as Lt. Surge. He would have been a tough match if it weren't for Mamoswine. He easily destroyed every one of his opponents, except for Electabuzz. He outspeeded Mamoswine and utilized Low Kick. Mamoswine survived and OHKO it with Earthquake.

I then headed north to Saffron City where I entered a gym with weird pads that transported me across the building. It was a little difficult to traverse it but I did. Sabrina was easily one of the hardest battles Ive had. Espeon was landing huge hits but I killed it off with the combined efforts of Mamoswine and Glaceon. I switched in Dewgong to go against Mr. mime. I revived Mamoswine and waited until Reflect wore off to switch in Mamoswine and finish it. Next up, it was Alakazam. That was tougher than Espeon in terms of strength but it was weaker defensively so I knew any hit I got on it would help. So mamoswine did ice shard before dying. Dewgong stood no chance against it's energy ball. Jynx died from one hit as well. Glaceon finished it off with shadow ball but it certainly took a hard psychic hit.

Now Im in Cerulean where I just beat the 6 trainer challenge.

I did a HG mono bug challenge. Most of the gyms are annoying because you aren't that great. Ariados helped against Morty, Shadow Sneak, but you have Ledyba. Butterfree helped against Chuck, but you have Beedril.

I used Ariados, Forretress, Butterfree, Scyther, Yanmega, and Parasect.
All in all, Bug was fun, but really tough most of the way through.

=D Have fun!

I haven't updated in a bit, but whatever. I've planned my next mono-type to be Dragon.

Currently working on a Dratini egg, then gonna do some research on who all I can get in HG and see who I need to egg up and trade over.

=D

After a little research I've decided I don't feel like waiting 110 days for a Bagon... so screw Dragon mono-type... that is unless someone wants to get me a bagon, swablu, trapinch, and gible egg... xD

.EJ
April 23rd, 2010, 05:30 PM
I could supply a gible egg, idk about the rest.

Quick Update: I beat Misty's gym (kinda hard) but Jynx learned Perish Song so I got rid of Starmie that way. I then beat Erika....easily....really easy....like I took it easy =]

I've taken a little break..:most likely finishing the challenge tomorrow!

April 23rd, 2010, 09:33 PM
The updates never end!!

I went against Janine but it was no match for Manoswine. I then went against Brock where everybody joined in and helped me win. With another fairly easy gym battle under my belt, I took off to Cinnabar Island to battle Blaine....but he wasn't there...

EDIT:

I proceeded to a nearby island east of Cinnabar and whaddaya know? He was in there in a makeshift gym. The battle
was actually kinda easy besides the obvious fire>ice advantage. Dewgong and Mamoswine performed well. I then talked to Blue and flew to Viridian City. I traversed the odd step pads that propelled me forward, sideways, and backwards. It was dizzying but I managed it. I finally made it to Blue where I immediately began a battle. Overall, many of his pokemon were strong against my type...but at the same time he also had some weaknesses I exposed. He began with Exeggutor so I finished it off with repeated ice shards. His Rhydon was up next so I 2HKO'd it with Earthquake. He then sent out his Arcanine which was tough but I finished it off with Mamoswine/Dewgong. Machamp turned out to be quite tough so he beat Mamoswine and I sent out jynx to use psychic. It knocked off a huge chunk of hp but not enough for a faint. It used stone edge and finished Jynx. I then sent out Glaceon where I somehow managed to pull off Blizzard while Machamp healed up. It was a OHKO. His Gyarados was also tough but amazingly I froze it with just one of Dewgong's Ice beam. I revived my mamoswine (because at that point Jynx, Glaceon, and Mamoswine had fainted from Machamp and gyarados. I used rock slide twice to finish Gyarados and then his Pidgeot was left. The battle was in my favor at last so I used ice shard with 4 HP left on Mamoswinr and then Pidgeot used whirlwind. I used Ice beam with Dewgong and that was it. Challenge completed.

I bet Falkner's embarrassed now! :D
Well, it did take me three tries to beat him, but after the first two humiliations of getting owned by a barrage of Gusts that always seemed to crit, I trained both my Pokemon and Ledyba's reflect really helped me :).
The battle was still annoying, as all he used that time was Sand Attack and Roost. It took, like, ten minutes >:(

Hey guys, make sure to say some thoughts on your experience (once you succeed) so I can add them under your name in the Champion's Corner.

Now that I've done the challenge I can say that I'm pretty manly.

Graaawwwwwllrrrr!!

It took a while and a LOT of Twineedles and Potions, but I managed to down Bugsy's Scyther reasonably easily with my Beedrill.
Then Beedrill destroyed the rest of his team with Rage. <3 Rage and Twineedle.
Currently training for the battle against Heart's Quilava. I have a feeling it will take many tries. :/

Summary of Rival Battle:
Heart sent out Gastly!
OMGWASP ;( used Pursuit. Gastly fainted!
Heart sent out Quilava!
Quilava decided to never use Ember even though my team was entirely composed of brittle bug types!
Quilava fainted!

I won the battle without taking any damage. Fail AI. I'll certainly have problems with him in the future, though.

Beat Whitney incredibly easily, Beedrill took care of Clefairy and most of Miltank, then I switched out to Pineco and self destructed for the lulz. Gym complete.

Played the bug catching contest and didn't even rank. Maybe because I only caught a Butterfree then retired :P

Killed Sudowoodo, currently in Ecruteak city. Just about to enter the sinister looking tower thingy.

Update time!

Went aaaaaalllllllll the way back to Azalea to catch Heracross. God, he was a ***** to catch. Took me a lot of tries with Parasect until I finally decided to get False Swipe. Finally got it. Grinded it to level 27. Taught it Focus Blast. Taught Butterfree Solar Beam.

Went aaaaaaalllll the way back to Ecruteak and completely destroyed my rival. Butterfree 1HKOd Gastly and Zubat, and Heracross 1HKOd both Magnemite and Quilava with Focus Blast.

Blitzed the Ghost gym with Butterfree and it's Psybeam. 1HKOd almost all of Morty's pokemon except Gengar. He took 2 hits.

Y'know, for what is supposedly the worst type in the game, these bugs actually pwn. It may be to do with me being overlevelled, but you kinda have to be when using Bugs...

Let the games begin!
Met the odd, kimono wearing woman again. Only, this time, she pretended like she didn’t even know me! That’s extremely insensitive, seeing as I told you my name already, and I let you look at my Togepi Egg (and no, that is not an innuendo).
A nice lady gave me the TM for Taunt. If I was trying to catch an Abra, this would have been extremely helpful. But, I’m only using Normal-types, which means no Abra for me. I’ll hold onto the TM though, since I don’t like selling gifts.
Read the sign outside of the guardpost-like building. Apparently, Radio Tower is giving away Radio Cards! I wonder if they have any Ocarinas… Perhaps a Wind Waker?
Register Gina in my PokeGear, because I roll that way. Then I registered Ian, because I don’t want to be a dick and say no to a little kid. God, that came out wrong.
Hey, it’s Lyra! And, apparently, she’s related to the Day Care Couple! Also, she’s not Crys! …Just saying. She still has that Marill with her, and I think I might have to have Aipom kick its ass. Also, Lyra’s grandmother seems to be implying that Lyra and I are an item. That… I don’t really mind; I’d hit that. She gave me her number too… damn, two girls in one day. Gold is becoming a pimp. I also registered Lyra’s grandparents because they asked, instead of Prof. Oak, who demanded that I go out and tame wild animals. Where is that prick anyway? I’ve got a few choice (and four) letter words for him.
Found another cop, but he only ever does anything at night, and he never leaves this Route. Good job, Johto Police Division.
Mom called to tell me she bought me a gift. Thanks Mom! I wonder what it is… To the Goldenrod Department Store! Besides, I’ve gotta pick up a few TMs there anyways.
Mom bought me Yache Berries! Not exactly useful for this Challenge, but should I start my Dragon Challenge anytime soon, these will become infinitely useful! Thanks Mom. P.S: Buy me a Dratini next!
Took the elevator to the 6th floor, and got myself a Prism Berry in the Drawing. Not bad, but I would have liked that TM 60… Oh well. Can’t win ‘em all, I guess.
Bought me the TMs for Focus Blast and Fire Blast. Currently, Togetic can only learn Fire Blast. I guess I’ll have to wait for my Dawn Stone at the Pokethlon. What a drag… And even then, I’ve gotta re-teach Togekiss Air Slash and Aura Sphere. I also, on the 2nd floor, bought as many Ultra Balls as I can. I’m catching a Tauros soon, and I want to catch it without having to rely on the Pokéball’s shaky Capture Rate. We all saw what happened with Aipom.
…I see a train station. I like it. I wanna ride the train! But I can’t, cause someone broke it. Whoever they are, they shall pay for their sins, like the heathen they are!
Went to the Gym, only to find out that Whitney’s being irresponsible and hanging out at the Radio Tower to win a Card. To the tower!
…Okay, now you’ve gotta be kidding me. There’s a freaking terrorist outside,someoneidentified him as a member of Team Rocket; no one calls the police. Everyone in Goldenrod is officially useless and/or brain-dead.

Got me a Radio Card, which caught Whitney’s attention. Apparently, she though Kurt used Apricots, or something like that. Finally, she returned to the kitchen Gym. Now, to go and get a Plain Badge!
After entering, and defeating every member of the Gym but Whitney, I took a small respite at the Pokémon Center, healing up those who had been damaged. My mom also called, to let me know that she bought me something. Maybe it’s my Dratini?! To the Department Store!
…It wasn’t a Dratini. Just more berries. Mom, you’re making me sad.
Gina called me up to talk about how in sync she was getting with her Hoppip, and how she was angry that she couldn’t catch a Drowzee.
Sorry Whitney, but I’m gonna be needin’ that Plain Badge.
Stupid damn Fury Swipes keeps hitting only twice.
Finally KO’d that annoying Miltank with a Screech/Fury Swipes combination.
Oh crap. I made her cry. This… cannot end well for me. Lucky for me, I’m wearing my cup.
I stealthily tried to make my exit as Whitney’s crying, only to be stopped by one of the Gym Trainers. Apparently, this happens a lot.
Well, after Whitney finally calmed down and stopped crying, she gave me the Plain Badge and TM 45, Attract. Badge is great, TM… meh.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4a/Zephyr_Badge.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/08/Hive_Badge.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a7/Plain_Badge.png


That’s three badges in five days. Why can’t the Anime progress this damn fast?
I know that this is a shameless advertisement, but, if you’re looking for Video Game Soundtracks, go to http://www.ostproject.co.cc/. They are one of the best, if not the best, place to get Soundtracks from, and their list of tracks are pretty damn impressive. Let me tell you, nothing is more fun than playing Pokémon, while switching between the Pokémon HeartGold Soundtrack, to the Megamn 10 Soundtrack, to the Resident Evil 4 Soundtrack.
Healed up the team at the Pokémon Center before setting out towards the North, and Ecruteak City.
I was asked to deliver a letter to someone on Route 31. I turned them down instantly. Sorry, but I’m not playing delivery-boy anymore, and I refuse to do good deeds unless they work in my direct interest.
Mom bought me more berries. Seriously mom, can you just get me a Dratini? Or maybe a Jigglypuff? I’ve always wanted one of those…
Decided against teaching Aipom Agility, since I saw no real point in it. Baton Pass is just going to be used once Aipom/Ambipom gets damaged too badly, and I don’t plan on passing Speed boosts.
Registered the Juggler, Irwin, because apparently, I have fans now.
I’ve gotta tell you, you have no idea how happy I am that Game Freak gave Togepi Extrasensory. Before, in G/S/C, it was so difficult to train Togepi, because you had to rely on TMs or the EXP Share. Now though, backed with Serene Grace and a decent attacking move, the Togepi family is, to quote the Wu Tang Clan, nothin’ to **** with.
Ran back to the Pokémon Center to heal up, and then hit the road again.
Entered the National Park. Left to go to the Pokethlon Dome and… goddammit! Another pedophile! Mother of **** ****!
Holy crap. That dome is… big. Hey it’s Whitney! How you doin’? Am I a medium or a small? I’m all large, baby. Looks like she forgot here Pokémon. I swear, all the good looking ones are airheads.
Left the Pokethlon Dome, enraged at the fact that they don’t carry Shiny Stones at this time. I need a goddamn Shiny Stone!
Declined the offer to take the Bug Catching Challenge, since it would serve no real purpose, considering that if I were to start a Bug-type Challenge, I’d have to use Caterpie/Weedle/Ledyba/Spinarak since those are the first four Bug-types that appear early in the game. Believe me though, if I could import Eggs with those Pokémon, I’d whip everyone from Faulkner, to Whitney, to Chuck, to Claire. Scyther is just a beast like that.
Entered National Park, and I like the scenery. Very serene, very pristine and relaxed.
Got a call from Lyra… about Route 46. NEVER SPEAK OF THAT ROUTE IN MY PRESENSE AGAIN, LYRA!
Took a picture with my squad in the park. This is going right on my fridge. Wait… do I even own a fridge? What the hell do I eat, anyway? And when!?
Got a Quick Claw from a rather bossy woman, which thinks she’s a teacher.
Met a father, and his cosplaying son. I swear, this world gets weirder and weirder every time I open my eyes.
Went behind the fence, walked southward bound and…. Where the hell is TM Dig? Where the hell is TM Dig! Goddammit!
Never mind. I found it. Stupid gigantic tree was blocking it from sight.
Got a Soothe Bell too, this would have been useful, if Togepi hadn’t evolved already.
Got a call from Ian, telling me on how, after he learned so much from our battle, he managed to defeat a Ratatta. That’s nice Ian. It’s good to have fans, and people that idolize you. It makes it easier when you need to borrow cash, or a getaway car.
Taught Aipom Double Hit and…YAY! He evolved into an Ambipom! Now he’s got four hands, and each one can kick some ass!
Met a weird Bird Keeper, who asked me about my balls. Sorry, but those are off-limits.
Spoke with Floria, who informed me that the ‘tree’ blocking the way to Ecruteak wasn’t a tree at all, but a Pokémon! This comes as no surprise to me, seeing as I already figured that out when I poked it and the damn thing moved! Now I need to spray it with water… Maybe Totodile can help.
*Remembers what happened last time Totodile was out of the PC* …So many bodies. Oh merciful God, why!?
Got distracted by the allure of more Game Soundtracks. My iPod is crying from the complete overload of win that it’s trying to contain.
On my adventures on the Internetz, I came across a wonderful site by the name of http://forums.ffshrine.org/. I would recommend anyone looking for Game Guides, OSTs (that you can’t find on ostproject), or basically anything else, to check out that site. I found a Pokémon HeartGold/Soul Silver Strategy Guide (PRIMA) there, and who knows what other treasures you could find?

Ugh, stupid ROM. Sadly it's all I've got, but I wish it wouldn't freeze so much. :(

Anyway, I'm up and ready to make as little progress as possible! I head up Route 30, and remember that bet I made a little while ago. So I go to check on it and...WHAT!?!?!? WHAT DO YOU MEAN HE LOST!?!? I'M SO MAD I'LL TAKE IT OUT ON THE FEW TRAINERS IN THESE ROUTES! But anyway, the trainers here don't pose too much of a fight. I go ahead and look for a certain rat so I can abuse it for its brethren not being strong enough to take out a stupid pigeon.

So I capture an HM Slave Rattata for Cut and Rock Smash purposes, and get to Violet. After healing up quick, I head out to the western and southern routes for Rock Smash (which I immediately give to Rattata) and a level six Bellsprout to add to the team (respectively)! He's male, and the first thing that pops into my head is...Sparticus. Not sure why.

After a little bit of training (and game freezing :| ) in Sprout Tower, I get Sparticus up to level 10, and decide I've done enough for tonight. Sorry for the short update...

The updates never end!!

I went against Janine but it was no match for Manoswine. I then went against Brock where everybody joined in and helped me win. With another fairly easy gym battle under my belt, I took off to Cinnabar Island to battle Blaine....but he wasn't there...

EDIT:

I proceeded to a nearby island east of Cinnabar and whaddaya know? He was in there in a makeshift gym. The battle
was actually kinda easy besides the obvious fire>ice advantage. Dewgong and Mamoswine performed well. I then talked to Blue and flew to Viridian City. I traversed the odd step pads that propelled me forward, sideways, and backwards. It was dizzying but I managed it. I finally made it to Blue where I immediately began a battle. Overall, many of his pokemon were strong against my type...but at the same time he also had some weaknesses I exposed. He began with Exeggutor so I finished it off with repeated ice shards. His Rhydon was up next so I 2HKO'd it with Earthquake. He then sent out his Arcanine which was tough but I finished it off with Mamoswine/Dewgong. Machamp turned out to be quite tough so he beat Mamoswine and I sent out jynx to use psychic. It knocked off a huge chunk of hp but not enough for a faint. It used stone edge and finished Jynx. I then sent out Glaceon where I somehow managed to pull off Blizzard while Machamp healed up. It was a OHKO. His Gyarados was also tough but amazingly I froze it with just one of Dewgong's Ice beam. I revived my mamoswine (because at that point Jynx, Glaceon, and Mamoswine had fainted from Machamp and gyarados. I used rock slide twice to finish Gyarados and then his Pidgeot was left. The battle was in my favor at last so I used ice shard with 4 HP left on Mamoswinr and then Pidgeot used whirlwind. I used Ice beam with Dewgong and that was it. Challenge completed.

Changing to Dragon Type, started again, traded in a Dratini with Extreme Speed :D

Blitzed everything with Dragon Rage, when it obeyed me, of course.
One shotted both of Falkner's pokemon, although it took a while for it to obey me.

Went through Union Cave, pwned everyone.

Now I'm off to abuse Team Rocket, then the bug gym. Hopefully I won't have reached 20 by then. :/

Anyway, DESTROYED Whitney. Dragon Rage 2HKO'd both of her Pokemon, even though I had to use a Super Potion after getting Judgement Metronomed. D: Gonna get an Ekans and breed it with my female Dratini so I can get a second pokemon. :/

I have a feeling the Ghost type gym will be very annoying. :/ lol

Update!

This is all relevant so bear with it please.



~My school has this thing called "Game Club" formed by some of the nerdier students, a.k.a. My friends and I. We haven't been there in some time, even though it was our idea.
~We decided to go back after not having anything planned that particular Thursday, and we arrived only to find it had been taken over by dorks and dweebs who reeked of B.O. and greeted us as the "New Kids" (This alone got me pretty pissed so I explained to them what it says above), but since the bus did not come for another half-hour, we reluctantly decided to stay.
~We played some Brawl, DDR, Soul Caliber and even some FPS's and I let my friend borrow my DS and battle some kid who honestly wasn't all there mentally.
~He fought him with my bug team and they decided to use Pokemon levels 30 and below to be fair.
~This kid pulls out a level 40 Murkrow as his 3rd Pokemon and thinks he's being clever (I know this because I watched the battle video that my friend saved afterward).
~Needless to say, my team lost (even though Scizor put up one hell of a fight) and I was a bit mad at this kid who can't play by rules.
~I went back looking to ask him about it and he was gone. I put my DS down for but a minute to think about it, and someone erased my file when I wasn't looking.
~I'm sure they meant it as a joke, but I'm still pretty steamed.
~I did not make a backup so it's kinda my fault too. I may continue with this challenge, or I may switch over to Steel... Probably stick with Bug though.

I've hatched a Dratini and I am currently levelling it. Bought some TMs and taught them to both my Pokemon. Will do the Burned Tower and beat the gym soon.

Never done this, even though I've always wanted to. :P Thinking about doing fire, but I really hate cyndaquil >.> Think someone could trade me a charmander instead or would that be too against the rules? If not, that's okay, i'll try to get a shiny cyndaquil or something, to make it fun :P

Also, are pokewalker pokemon are allowed? The first page says it is, I think. But it seems no one is using them so I'm not sure. =X

.EJ
April 25th, 2010, 11:56 AM
Yeah I'd allow it. That happened to me two years ago with Diamond and that's where I had competitive teams, 3rd gen legendaries, kanto starters, and mooooreee. I know what's it like to see hard work go to waste.

Oh sorry, I said I'd allow Chazz to get help but that's a no to charmander.

You get access to Vulpix, Magmar, growlithe, the starter, etc (can't think of anybody else ATM). If you gimme a good reason as to why you should be allowed, I'll do it.

Robin Hood
April 25th, 2010, 12:23 PM
Allright, no problem. Just asking as it was my favorite one. :P I'll think I'll do Psychic, as i've never used a Wobbuffett before and I think Togepi's metronome would be fun in the long run. Pokewalker's allowed, right? If so, I'll be getting Wobuffet pretty early on. If not, then I'll have to wait till after the first for the togepi. Either way, I'll do it.

Day One


Thanked the Nintengod for the ability to skip through to the tutorial.
Wondered where Oak got his new snazzy gold jacket.
He showed me his Marril. I hate Marril. -.-
Checked my "assets" and discovered that I was indeed a boy, and chose that option accordingly.
Named myself "Sid" after my hero, Sid Vicious. Anyone who knows who that is gets a free cookie.
Had a "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids"-esque experience and started my journey.
Mom gave me a few things, like the ability to save, which is kinda usefull I guess.
Marril hit me as soon as I opened the door. I hate Marrils. -.- So I punched him square in his blue, rat eyed face-body. Don't **** with me, *****.
Elm decides to send me on an errand. Blah blah, ocean of text.
Got a little hopeful, wishing that on the off chance, one of the starters would be shiny.
Cried.
Chose dumb, regular colored Totodile. :( Figure he'll be my surf slave.
Elm's aide gives me some potions, which I can only assume are some LSD-laced, poke-enhancing superdrug.
Talked with Lyra. Marril was hiding behind her. That's right mother****er. I hate Mariil. -.-
Talked with Mom, who gave me my Pokegear and explained to me the fine, complicated art of making a call, even when I told her that I knew how. -.-
Saved to mow the grass and text my girlfriend, who frankly, I really neglect when Pokemon is involved in any way.

Would post pictures, but I need 15 post count to do that. :)

Kay back, lawn is freshyl mowed and I'm on my way to Mr. Pokemon's house. Clever name.


Running from any fight, a thing which I rarely do so early in the game, but I don't want to use Totodile anymore than I have to. :/
Oh that's cool. If you go past the Apricorn house without going in, the guy comes out for you. That's kinda helpful.
Arrived at Mr. Pokemon's house. Always found it so annoying how their's so much text to skip through here. :(
Spent literally 20 minutes sitting there, because i kept getting distracted. Damn reality tv.
Ran from all the wild battles back.
Completely forgot that I had to battle "Passerby Boy" o.o Probably should've trained.
After getting growled at by a living blob with a leaf on it's head, my blue-colored wonder was triumphant. Hope you liked that excercise, it's the last you'll ever get.
After traveling back to New Bark, the policeman asks me the man's name. I named him Beatle. Because I hate The Beatles. Yeah.
I left the lab and was stopped by my best friend and her... Marill. I hate Marril. -.- I stared at it and wondered how filet Marril would taste.
She taught me a way to trick Pokemon into being my slaves. Sweet!
Caught a Normal/Flying Hoothoot, don't think I'll actually use him though, I just need something to go in my pokewalker to try and get my Khangaskhan. :)
Put Hoothoot in there and I'm off. :)

Starr's Electric Shock Saga
Chapter Four: Eusine, Suicune and the Fog Badge

First Entry

Flaaffy, Pikachu and I headed out of Goldenrod City with the Squirt Bottle in hand, ready to finally take care of that tree once and for all! We headed through the National Park, where I guess they have bug catching contests or something. It wasn’t going on today, so we just walked through and finally ended up at the weird tree.

I used the Squirt Bottle… and the tree turned around to fight me! Apparently it was a Pokémon, a Sudowoodo! I had never seen anything like that, and it looked kind of rare, so I caught it so Professor Elm could maybe study it later.

*** SUDOWOODO (NON-ELECTRIC) CAUGHT – ROUTE 36 ***

In a cool twist of fate, literally steps after catching the Sudowoodo, my egg hatched into a cuuuute little Pichu!

*** PICHU (MALE) HATCHED – ROUTE 36 ***

After a handful of trainer fights, we finally made it to Ecruteak City… but I have something else in mind I want to do before I even think about challenging the local Gym.

Second Entry

After healing up at the local Pokémon Center, I headed out of the western gate of Ecruteak in search of a specific Pokémon… and I was not disappointed! The first wild Pokémon I attracted was the exact one I was looking for, a level 16 Magnemite! I took down its health with a couple of Headbutts from Flaaffy, then caught it on the first tossed Poké Ball!

*** MAGNEMITE (GENDERLESS) CAUGHT – ROUTE 38 ***

I probably got a little too excited over catching the Magnemite, unfortunately, because I attracted a trainer as well, some girl named Dana! We battled, and after I beat her, my Flaaffy leveled to 30 and evolved into Ampharos! Wow!

*** AMPHAROS (FEMALE) OBTAINED – FLAAFFY EVOLUTION ***

Third Entry

We headed back to the Pokemon Center to rest up again and get Magnemite into fighting shape when I met Bill, some guy who apparently created the Pokemon Storage System used on the PCs in every Center. He told me he was fixing some wi-fi thingamajig and then told me to come back to his house in Goldenrod City, so I headed back there after hitting the shop for some items. When I got there, Bill asked me if I could take care of an Eevee he found… after remembering that Eevee evolves into Jolteon when exposed to a Thunderstone, I told him of course, and added the little guy to my team!

*** EEVEE (MALE) OBTAINED – GOLDENROD CITY ***

I headed back to Ecruteak with Eevee in tow and headed into the Gym, only to be told that Morty, the Gym Leader, wasn’t there, he was in the Burned Tower, located on the Western edge of Ecruteak! I groaned audibly (really, this is the second Gym Leader to not be WHERE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE when I come to challenge them! This is getting annoying!) then headed into the Burned Tower to investigate.

Fourth Entry

The Burned Tower was really unstable, and a little scary. Poor Ampharos kept looking over my shoulder, afraid the floor was going to give way! After looking around for a bit, we located Morty, there with his friend Eusine. The guy seemed like a bit of a nut, he kept going on about Suicune this and Suicune that… ugh. After walking away from him halfway through his recollection of the Suicune beanie baby collection he had as a small child, I ran smack dab into Alex, my rival, who challenged me to yet another battle! Needless to say, I whomped him per usual and sent him running.

With Alex out of the way, I headed downstairs into the Tower’s basement and found three really mystical looking Pokemon! I creeped closer to get a better look, but as I did, the three Pokemon came to life and sprinted out of the Tower. One in particular, a blue one, stopped in front of me to sniff before running off. Eusine came up from behind me and said that what I just saw was Suicune and that he was going to try to catch it. Okay, whatever.

With all of that out of the way, I finally followed Morty back to the Gym and… um, wow. It was really weird in there! All kinds of old ladies with ghosts and candles… so creepy! Regardless, I was able to fight through them without a problem and finally reached Morty. Five minutes and change later, Ampharos made short work of his entire Ghost-type team and I found myself the owner of my fourth Gym Badge!

http://www.crystal-islands.com/anime/characters/main/badges/fogbadge.png
*** FOG BADGE OBTAINED (4/8) ***

With the Fog Badge in my collection, Morty suggested I head south to Olivine City for my next Gym Battle, and suggested I was going to have to get across the sea. One question… with who? I don’t think any of my Pokemon can swim! I...

…one moment, I’m getting a message from Professor Elm on my PokeGear…

…Chinchou? An electric and water type? Hmm…

Morty's Ghosts were no match for Dragonair! Twister and Dragon Rage made quick work of them.... Mwahahaha.

Added to the fact that he backed me right into a corner, I was nearly certainly going to lose (I'd deposited my other Pokemon in the PC so I couldn't use it, don't ask me why) and then Haunter, his last Pokemon, committed suicide with Curse. :D
Currently in Cianwood, foolishly forgetting to visit the Lighthouse.... Bah XD

Anyway, now I plan to beat Chuck easily, get Whirlpool, and catch me a Horsea from yonder Whirl Islands. :) All in all, going pretty well.

PS. I refuse to be named a Champion until I beat Red. :)

Just beat Chuck without too much trouble. Took ages to take down that Poliwrath though. The guy tricked me. I'd red healthed his Poliwrath, and he switched to Primeape, so I went to surf it, then he switched back and got healed >:(.

Extreme speed was also the only thing that saved me from the terrible Focus Punch spam. Luckily, no double team. :)

Bah, I had an entire thing written up here. But I pressed back and it was all erased. I'm just give a broad overview for the first ~7 bullets then.

I can now post pictures! So my entries will be a bit prettier now. :)





Day 2

Got my Kangaskahn after a day at school. It's a Careful nature, although that doesn't matter much to me. Took a while but I got the Scrappy ability, which lets his attacks hit ghost types.
Dumped Totodile in my PC
Fought my way to Cherrygrove
Said "hell no" when Youngster Joey asked for my number
Arrived in Violet City
Battled my way to the top of Sprout Tower, eventually letting my Khangaskahn learn Bite at level 12 :)
Now this is where I am. This'll be a bit more detailed.
Saw Beatle, the arrogant kid left without giving me a chance to wipe the floor with him.
With Fake Out(a move I can't decide if I like or not), I took out the Sage's first pokemon and newly-learned Bite put the rest out of comission. :)
Senile old man gave me flash, which will annoy me soon enough.
Used my escape rope to climb down sprout tower. Because that's safe.
Arrived at Violet Gym, went up the elevator and ascended to the heavens.
Gotta say, I really dig these new gym layouts. :)
After beating the two trainers before the leader, I realized that my Kanghaskan is underleveled, atleast for me. Usually my starter has evolved by this time and I make that a point before I beat the first gym. So with that, I descended back to earth and grinded using primarily Fake Out till my Kanghaskahn was level 16.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a0/FalknerHGSS.gif






My first Gym Battle as a normal-user!
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a2/Spr_4h_016.png Vs. http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5b/Spr_4h_115.png





Because of the size difference, I could feel my Kanghaskahn getting a bit overconfident here. But then again so was I, since it was the first turn he was out, it allowed me to use Fake Out which always hits first, nullifying the speed advantage Pidgey had AND has a 100% chance of flinching, allowing me to get a second attack off. My plan was already formulating.
I ordered my Kanghaskan to use Fake Out as soon as the battle began and that alone defeated his pidgey. A one hit KO so early on.http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/b3/Spr_4h_017.pngvs http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5b/Spr_4h_115.png





When Falkner threw out his level 13 Pidgeotto, I had to wonder by what black magic he got the pidgey to evolve so quickly. Seems to be against the rules of nature but hey, gym leaders don't obey those rules apparently.
From the start, it seemed like I'd have a spot of trouble since I could not use Fake Out again. For those that don't know, Fake Out only hits on the first turn the user is out, it's deemed useless with a 100% fail rate afterwards.
I attacked with a STAB-ed Comet Punch right out from the start, it seems that the three level advantage my Kanghaskahn had made up for the speed loss and I still attacked first. Comet Punch hit 1,2,3, and finally 4 times, hitting a 1 Hit KO!
So with not even a scratch on him, My Kanghaskan won and left Falkner crying on the floor.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4a/Zephyr_Badge.png



Success! with that, I continued on, got the second man for my team, Togepi, saved and now I'm off to bed. Pretty good day :P

April 26th, 2010, 10:00 PM
Damn Jasmine and her Magnemites!
Every single one I fought paralyzed and confused me >:( 1HKO'd her Steelix with Surf though, no problem. Steelix is a big wussy.
Now I'm hunting for Whirlpool so I can finally get a Horsea. Or is the Ice Gym whirlpool? I'm not sure.
If it is, I'm in a bit of trouble, since seadra was gonna be what I was going to use against the Ice Gym due to the water type cancelling out weakness to Ice.

Starr's Electric Shock Saga
Chapter Five: Sinnoh and the Storm Badge

First Entry

After defeating Morty, I headed southwest from Ecruteak en route to Olivine. I placed Magnemite at the front of my party because I've heard rumors that once it evolves into a Magneton, there's a place in far-away Sinnoh where it can evolve even further! Luckily for me, one of my old school friends lives in Sinnoh, where he defeated their League Champion much like I hope to do someday.

After reaching Moomoo Farms and helping their sick Miltank get back to prime health, my Pokémon and I headed south, where I found a wild Farfetch'd! I caught him and when we get to Olivine, I'm going to switch him out with Oddish. Not only can Farfetch'd learn Cut, but it can Fly as well and that's a skill I feel I'm going to need sooner or later!

*** FARFETCH'D (MALE) CAUGHT (HM SLAVE) - ROUTE 39 ***

Second Entry

Upon entering Olivine City, Alex appeared and told me that the Gym Leader was, surprise surprise, not at her post. He called me weak or something (I tuned him out, to be honest!) and went to explore the town. I met a fisherman who gave me a Good Rod and told me where I could find a Chinchou... using his Rod, fishing in the Whirl Islands!

Now how am I going to get to the Whirl Islands? I still don't have anybody who can Surf!

Third Entry

Well, I made a decision, and it's not one I'm particularly proud of... I fished right outside Olivine and caught a Krabby.

*** KRABBY (FEMALE) CAUGHT (TEMP. SURF SLAVE) - OLIVINE CITY ***

Now, now, hear me out! I don't plan on keeping the Krabby, even if she is cute! While I searched through the City for ideas, I found a nice guy who is willing to trade his Voltorb for a Krabby! So I'll use Krabby, head out to the Whirl Islands, catch a Chinchou, head back to Olivine, then trade Krabby for the guy's Voltorb and teach Chinchou Surf! It's a flawless plan!

Fourth Entry

It worked! I did it exactly as I laid out before, and on top of all that, Magnemite got some great experience from all of the water Pokémon we defeated! But the most important thing of all, I'm back in Olivine, and I now have both my shiny new Chinchou and that guy's Voltorb... which he apparently named Billy. Weird.

*** CHINCHOU (FEMALE) CAUGHT - WHIRL ISLANDS ***

*** VOLTORB OBTAINED (IN-GAME TRADE) - OLIVINE CITY ***

Now, I'm heading into the Glitter Lighthouse, which is where Jasmine is said to be. Wish me luck!

Fifth Entry

I just got back from the Lighthouse, and things are bad there. The Pokémon that keeps the sea lit at night, an Ampharos, is sick, and Jasmine won't leave it's side! She asked me to head to Cianwood City and get some special medicine from the pharmacy there, and my hands are tied, since I need Jasmine in her Gym to fight her, so I'm off to Cianwood. On the plus side, there's a Gym there as well!

Oh, but first things first... Magnemite evolved during the last fight I had inside the Lighthouse!

*** MAGNETON (GENDERLESS) OBTAINED - MAGNEMITE EVOLUTION ***

While in the Pokémon Center, I called my friend, David, who lives in Sinnoh. Luckily, I caught him while he was relaxing in Hearthome City, taking in some contests. He told me the location I was looking for was Mt. Coronet, and he happened to be right near it where he was, so we did a temporary trade - I sent him Magneton and he let me watch over his cute little baby Chingling in the meantime. She was SO cute!

Anyways, after about ten minutes, I got a call back from David saying that Magneton had leveled inside Mt. Coronet into a Magnezone! We hooked back up over the trade channel and after sending his little Chingling back, I got my freshly-evolved Magnezone!

*** MAGNEZONE (GENDERLESS) OBTAINED - MAGNETON EVOLUTION ***

I thanked David and let him go so he could go enjoy his Contest watching. As for me... it's time to go to Cianwood City, save Ampharos, and get my next Gym Badge!

Sixth Entry

The swim from Olivine to Cianwood was fairly uneventful. I juggled between letting Magnezone and Ampharos fight... they both seem really eager to compete today!

Upon landing on Cianwood's shore, we healed up at the Pokémon Center and found the pharmacy, where the man working gladly handed over his Secret Potion once I explained the situation. We left and I prepared to enter the Gym, but Magnezone started getting all funny and making some noises, then took off towards the northern shore of the City...

It turns out it was Suicune setting off Magnezone's sensors! It took off again, and of course, Eusine popped out of nowhere obsessing over it again. He then challenged me to a match, and Magnezone took out his entire team without trying. Keep trying, buddy, maybe one day you'll catch that Suicune.

After all of that, we finally made it to the Cianwood City Gym. Ampharos took her place at the front of my team and systematically tore through all of the trainers inside the Gym until finally we reached Chuck, the Gym Leader. He was mad I turned his waterfall off, so I apologized by dropping his Pokémon like a bad habit. The Storm Badge is mine!

http://www.crystal-islands.com/anime/characters/main/badges/stormbadge.png
*** STORM BADGE OBTAINED (5/8) ***

With another Badge in my collection, we exited the Gym, where a woman stopped me and rewarded me with the HM02 for Fly! I immediately taught it to Farfetch'd, then headed back to Olivine through the skies. Up next on the agenda... saving Amphy and getting my next Badge! You're on notice, Jasmine!

Might aswell do fighting since no one else has touched it yet,
not sure what the earliest wild fighting type is does anyone know?
updates soon!

I think it's Mankey, but I'm pretty sure that you don't get it for a while.

Actually, after checking my Strategy Guide, you don't get a Mankey until after defeating the Ecruteak Gym, and Morty.

Edit: If you count Dual-types, you can use Heracross and Poliwrath, and get them both much earlier. But, even then, you don't get Poliwag until you can Surf and/or Fish, and you don't get Heracross until after Violet City. My advice would be to import a Fighting-type from D/P/Pt. I would suggest something like Chimchar (which evolves into the Fire/Fighting-type Infernape), Shroomish (evolves into the Grass/Fighting-type Breloom), or Riolu (which starts off as Fighting, and evolves into a Fighting/Steel-type).

Hell, you can't even get a Machop until Goldenrod. Your best bet is importing.

Arcelio
April 27th, 2010, 07:25 PM
Yeah ended up just using my starter to beat the first gym then got the old rod and got lucky enough to get a poliwag on the 2nd try, so Im gonna use him untill, I can find others, thanks for the help though :)

No problem. And, just as a side-note, I plan on doing the WaterElectric-type once my Normal-type Challenge is completed. Expect an update either today, or tomorrow, detailing my adventures from Goldenrod, to Ecruteak, to Olivine, to Cianwood, back to Olivine. I'm trying to at least get three badges before I update, and I'm succeeding. If only I had an R4, so I could play this game all day...

Added the newest challenger!

And yeah robin hood, dark is pretty cool to use except for all the importing egg hassles.

Update: I started the new game and ran all the silly errands. Eventually after taking off for my grand adventure I ditched Chikorita as soon as the newly hatched poochyena could defend itself. Pluto and I grinded at the Sprout Tower and defeated all of our opponents with a combination of Howl + Tackle. I saw my rival, Silver, and he took off.

He was probably scared from Pluto, afterall she is a rabid wolf pup haha! Then my second egg hatched and whaddaya know?! A sneasel was born! Oh the miracle of poké-birth!! I then took off with sneasel and grinded her against the wild bellsprouts and hoothoots. After I got it to a decent level, I challenged falkner. I beat the two trainers easily with Pluto. She learned bite so know I finally had a STAB move. Once I challenged falkner, Pluto howled and defeat Pidgey with it's bite. Next up was the hacked pidgeotto so I used bite but it didn't defeat it. It then roosted and Pluto howled once more. It used bite which knocked off some decent hp but it fell next turn to a gust. I sent out Sneasel to finish it off with ice punch (egg move).

That's it so far.

I'm thinking about joining with a dark type team, but I just have one question before I do. If I restart my game, will my pokewalker loose all it routes? Or could i bring over a Corphish and/or Murkrow egg to start with?

Damn, this has happened twice already where I had a full detailed update typed, then it failed to post. :(

I'll do a really fast update then I suppose. :(

Basically I beat the 2nd Gym Leader and arrived in Goldenrod, currently grinding my Aipom to 21.

Team:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/27/Spr_4h_190_m.png

Docile/ Level 20

Fury Swipes
Headbutt
Tickle
Astonish

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4e/Spr_4h_175.png
Impish/ Level 21

Sweet Kiss
Yawn
Extrasensory
Metronome


http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5b/Spr_4h_115.png

Careful/ Level 21

Mega Punch
Bite
Headbutt
Rock Tomb


Headbutt's a pretty good move, and Aipom's only good STAB move at the time is/was Scratch, so I thought it'd be good to teach him Headbutt as well :)

I'm not sure about the routes, but you are free to bring in two eggs to start you off. On my current challenge, I picked sneasel and poochyena.

April 28th, 2010, 05:17 PM
Alright, I'm ok with that. I'll just transfer all the important Pokemon over to platinum, cause i don't feel like catching them again in the play through and I'll start off with a Corphish and Murkrow eggs.

First log will probably be tomorrow.

Urp... Sorry for going too fast and not even registering before I began. -.-

No one's done this yet? Well, I'll do Mono-Fighting...
I've already got a start, if that's OK... It's not in the rules, and I couldn't get any Fighting types before Goldenrod that I know of, so I hope that doesn't affect anything.
(Restarting. I did break a rule.)


Register name thing (What my name is on first post?): Toxic Potato
Named myself MnoFht (:P What?)
Type: Mono-Fighting
Version: HeartGold

Progress - Restarting...
Used an in-game trade, which still counts as a trade. My bad.

Game restarted. Will update tomorrow.

Small update. Earliest fighter I can get that I know of is Heracross, so around Ilex Forest-ish.

Got a Poliwag on Route 31. Evolves into Water/Fighting after Poliwhirl, so it counts, right? Just has to be a Poliwhirl by end of the challenge?

Small update. Currently in Slowpoke Well with Pory the level 15 Poliwag. Gonna be hard since it's the only Pokemon I can use so far. :\ Time to stock up on potions.

In Azalea Gym. Not exactly looking forward to that Scyther... Pory is currently level 17. Interesting sidenote: The twins in the Gym will not battle you if you have only one Pokemon.
Scyther is obliterating me every time...
Ugh. This Scyther is immensely difficult... Grinding time.

Will continue updating later today.

Well, after downloading more than seven gigabytes worth of Video Game Soundtracks, my thirst for OSTs has been quenched… For now at least. And yes, I did get the HeartGold & SoulSilver OST.
With the Pokeathlon refusing to sell me any Shiny Stones, I’m going to get my ass back on the open road. I was heading back to Goldenrod City to see if I could borrow someone’s water bucket and dump it on a Pokémon. Maybe I should get a fire-truck… Heh, vroom.
Conveniently, there was a Flower Shop right next to the Gym. I wonder if they'd be willing to sell me some weed... I mean a watering can! Yeah... watering can... Good, relaxing watering can...

I talked to the girl in the Flower Shop and, apparently, because I have the Plain Badge, I can handle a SquirtBottle. Are you freakin’ kidding me? So what; if I didn’t have the Plain Badge, I’m incapable of using a damned water bottle? Is that what you’re trying to tell me?!
Sprayed the stupid not-tree with the SquirtBottle, which really pissed it off. It attacked me, and I killed it in the name of science.
Got one of the best Key Items that Nintendo has ever created, the Berry Pots. That’s right; I can carry my berries with me now. No more flying to random cities, then tracking down your berries! Just open your bag, take your berries, and plant some new ones.
Found a Stantler in the wild, but Stantler is inferior to Tauros in every way, but learning Hypnosis (which is a 60% accuracy move now, hence, it sucks), and having Intimidate. Killed it for science.
Finally reached Ecruteak City, after taking on an annoying Wigglytuff and Clefable duo. Spoke with Bill, a Pokémon Scientist, or something. He said something about Hoenn, then left. Whatever dude. I just want my Tauros.
Got a call from Beverly, talking about how she thought she saw a Marill, but it was really a Weedle. How do you screw that one up? I mean, Marill’s blue for Christ’s sake!
Entered the Ecruteak Gym, only for an old man to kick me out and call me a ‘ho ho ho’. That old bastard.
Got a call from Anthony, telling me that he ate some berries. You see, this is exactly why I don’t give my phone number out to people! They call me for trivial crap that I don’t give a **** about, and then expect me to care. Instead of going to the Burned Tower, I went to the Dance Theater.
LOL, Rocket Grunt wants a hula dance. I, personally, want a lap-dance, but not everyone gets what they want. Then, to top it off, the dipstick starts dancing on stage. I think, for the Rocket Exam (if they have one), they need to have a box that says ‘Check if you are below the IQ level for complete idiot’.
Some chump says that he has a ‘stomachache’ otherwise he would ‘do something’. Yeah, keep telling yourself that, coward. Now I’ve gotta play the big goddamn hero and save the damsel in distress. Curse my conscience!
The Grunt’s Koffing was no match for Togetic’s Extrasensory attack. OHKO.
Apparently, there’s a lower rank than Team Rocket Grunt. Rocket Toilet-Cleaner? Rocket Hobo? Rocket… Actually, I’ve got nothing. What the hell is lower than Grunt? Being fired? Actually, being fired from Team Rocket is kind of sad. It makes you realize that you sucked so badly that even the Rocket’s didn’t want you, even when they get their asses handed to them by ten-year-old children. Kind of sad, when you think about it.
Got a call from Walt… about Nidoran… I’m never picking up my damned PokéGear again, unless Mom is calling. To hell with everyone else. Maybe they’ll think I died, and leave me alone.
Just as a note, Devil May Cry 3 has one of the best Soundtracks (or OSTs, depending on how you see it) ever. Devils Never Cry is one of my favorite songs, and listening to it while kicking Pokémon ass just doubles the experience.
Got HM 03, Surf, for playing the hero. No one on my entire team can learn it, and make decent use of it. That kind of sucks, but I guess Totodile will have to take over for that.
Okay, just walking into the Burned Tower, I can see Entei, Suicune, and Raikou. Are you telling me that no one has seen or captured them yet, but they’re hiding in plain sight? Some guy named Eusine is looking for Suicune. Hey genius, here’s a tip for you; look down the giant gaping hole in the floor!
Okay, so he does know that Suicune is down there, but doesn’t go down there because it’ll run away. Doesn’t make him any less of a dumbass though.
Found Mr. *******, aka, Silver. Hey, why’s your name ‘Silver’, when your hair’s red? Oh, that’s right, because someone already has the name Red and, unlike you, he doesn’t completely fail at battling. GG Silver.
OHKO’d Silver’s entire team with Togetic’s Fire Blast and Extrasensory. After the battle, I got a call from Mother, telling me she bought me something. I swear, so help me God, if it’s more berries…
Okay, Raikou and Entei ran out pretty easily and smartly, running off in directions that I can’t easily follow. What does Suicune do? Run up to me and roar, as if it’s going to scare me. That bastard’s lucky I don’t have my Master Ball, or he’d be singing a different story. Also, before its ‘grand escape’, it ran in a circle… twice. Wow. Just wow.
Only is it after I leave the Burned Tower do I realize that I lack a Bicycle… ****!
Trekked back to Goldenrod City, to get me a Bicycle. And, while I’m on that Route, I might as well check to see if the Pokeathlon is giving out Shiny Stones yet.
Bastards still refuse to sell me a Shiny Stone. Damn them to hell.
Got me a free Bicycle. Back to Ecruteak we go!
Back to Ecruteak I went.
I’ve gotta say, personally, I hate the way the Ecruteak Gym was redesigned. I liked it when I seemed to just walk on air, and taking the wrong step dropped me back to the front. Now though, you just walk along the platforms. Worst redesign I’ve seen so far. All I had to do was disable my Running Shoes to make sure that I didn’t accidentally run off the edge. Other than that, it was pathetically easy.
Got distracted while listening to the Ocarina of Rhyme and Super Mash Bros. Those mother****ers can kick some serious musical ass.
Beat down Medium ass, then tracked down Morty. The fight is on!
Oh, for ****’s sake! ****ing ROM just had to go for a Trainer Loop when I started my battle with Morty. Worst part is, I didn’t SAVE for a while… Not even before facing Morty. I swear, so help me God… If this crap happens again, I’m going to get my knife.
Stayed in the Burned Tower and destroyed defenseless Pokémon, because they deserved it.
Caught a Miltank in an Ultra Ball on the Route adjacent to Ecruteak City. Also, I caught a Meowth, and a Tauros on this Route, as well as a Raticate. Not a bad haul today, even if the stupid ROM crashed on me. Now, to Level-Grind. I’ve gotta say though Togetic has got to be one of my best Pokémon that assists during the capture. Its use of Yawn is great, and it allows me to (so far) always catch the Pokémon with an Ultra Ball the next turn. I plan on keeping a diverse team of Normal-type Pokémon, swapping out a few of them on occasion to give others some time to shine. At the moment, I’m swapping out Fearow and Furret for Meowth and Tauros. And, in case you’re wondering, that last slot belongs to the Pokémon that I aim to capture soon, Teddiursa.
Went back to the Ecruteak Gym, vengeance on my mind. Morty shall pay for freezing my game earlier, and my Level 30 Tauros is just the Pokémon to do it. I think my Level 30 Scrappy-empoweredMiltank would also have something to say, as does my Technician, Bite attack Persian. You see Morty, if you had just let me kicked your ass before; you wouldn’t have had to worry about all these Pokémon, out for your blood.
Well, after looking over my Pokémon, I realized that Ambipom does not have Technician as its ability. Not a huge loss there, seeing as I’ve got Persian to take care of that, but still a bit depressing. I blame Morty for all of this. Speaking of Ambipom, I taught her U-turn, since I figured that it could be a useful weapon against Psychic-types. Such a shame that there’s no Shadow Claw TM in this game… Also taught Persian Dig to help it defeat Rock-types.
Made it to Morty after kicking some Medium ass, and saved before facing him this time. I’d be a fool if I didn’t learn from my mistakes.
Tauros alone slaughtered Morty’s entire squad. The only Pokémon that managed a single attack was his Gengar, which wasted his life using Mean Look. Morty should LRN2HPFIGHTING.

Update, day 2 of my Mono-Fighting playthrough.

FINALLY beat Bugsy after numerous hours of level grinding. Pory is now level 24. 1 more till it evolves.
Beat the Rival and completed the Farfetch'd puzzle they set up.
Time to search for a Heracross.
Current team:
Pory the Poliwhirl - Level 25
Body Slam
Rain Dance
Hypnosis
Bubblebeam

Steve the Heracross - Level 9
Focus Blast
Cut
Horn Attack
Endure


Pory evolved while fighting Youngster Samuel. Nice!
Now to stop slacking! Off to Route 33 in search of a Heracross!

...ARGH. Got a level 4 Heracross... I swear this game hates me or something. Couldn't think of a nice name so I named him Steve.
Not sure whether I must teach an HM to a Pokemon that can learn it or not. If I have a team Pokemon that can learn a certain HM, can I teach it to an HM slave instead?

Where in the world do I get a Water Stone? I must get one to evolve Pory. D:
"Come first in National Park Bug Catching contest or Pokegear phonecall from a trainer on Route 42." Well, Route 42 is the location of Mankey... So I guess that's my next stop! ...Well, after I fight Whitney... But... I don't have any fighting moves to speak of... This is going to take awhile... Especially with Steve still only at level 6.

All is well! Purchased a Focus Blast TM from the convenient Goldenrod Department Store, and taught that to Steve! Time for some training.

Well, almost at Whitney. With Pory incredibly overlevelled, this shouldn't prove to be too hard...

Gonna slow down the updating for now. Not 100% sure if I'll update again today. I'll probably be substantially further in the game by then. (Substantially further = Ecruteak City. :P)

Yeah, probably not updating again for awhile. Will update with any (previously) important events once I start updating again.
(Lied for a second there.) Just something I thought I'd say before retiring the forums for today/a bit of today. Lyra lied to me. Her Marill did not evolve. D:

Argh, can't handle not updating.
Team:

Pory the Poliwhirl - Level 26
Body Slam
Rain Dance
Hypnosis
Bubblebeam

Steve the Heracross - Level 14
Focus Blast
Cut
Horn Attack
Aerial Ace

Haven't taken on Whitney quite yet... Want to get Steve to at least level 20 first.

Failing at Whitney too. :P Gonna stop updating for today. Will be back tomorrow after I've made more progress.

Lied... Again. In Ecruteak City. This is - for real - the last update for today. Will be a bit farther by the time I update tomorrow.

Well, Today I woke up and saw an old guy in front of me. It was kind of freaky, because I had no idea how he got in my house...Anyway, I told him that I was a boy, and I told him my name, gold. He gave me a bit of a pep talk, told me about unfolding adventure. blah.blah.blah.

I then came out of my room and spoke with my mom, only to find out that i had to do a chore for elm. blah~

I received my toto (So my rival's starter will be grass) and named it HMslave01. It followed behind me and i ignored it for the most part. I began to go north, in the direction of mr. p's place. On the way there I ran into a weedle. it seemed to want to join me, and I felt bad that i dudn't have any pokeballs. I told him that I'd be back, soon.

When i got to mr. pokemon's house, he gave me an egg, and oak gave me a pokedex. whoo! As i left the house, i was called by a frantic Elm. Apparently he needed me right away. I ran back to Cherrygrove and was intercepted by a red-haired boy. I defeated him with ease, and stole his trainer card, chuckling slightly. He realized that i had taken it and panicked, for I knew his name...

When I got back to Elm's place, a police officer was there, and he rudely accused me of being the thief. Right as I was about to blow up on him, Lyra came in and began yelling at him and defending me. Yep, she wants me. I tell them the perp's name, Silver. I then decide to leave and go on my adventure. I tell my mom to save my money, and I tell her that if she spends ANY of it, I'll be really pissed. I leave, but not before lyra shows me a bit on catching pokemon.

I head past cherrywood, and my little weedle is there, just waiting to be caught, but not without a fun battle first! I catch him with ease, and take him back to the pc to heal. I stuck my toto in a box, and decided that it was time to train. I grinded my weedle to level 5, and then went to catch a bellsprout. After watching Little Shop Of Horrors last week, I decided to name it Audrey. I took it to the nearby cave and killed some geodudes, and catching a zubat as well. I meant to name him Drac, but I forgot to. I'll fix that in goldenrod. I then proceeded to take my team of solid 5s to the sprout tower. I slaughtered all of the trainer's pokemon that lived there. I got up to the top floor and was defeated by the first person up there...I needed more training.

I went to the area south of Violet and ran into an Ekans. SCORE! It also has a Docile nature. DOUBLE SCORE! I trained it to level six, and went back to the sprout tower. yay! I defeated everyone there with ease, leveling my pokemon to 7 and 8. I ran to the gym leader falkner, and fought him 3 times before i finally defeated him. ugh I think that i'm taking a break here, It's been a long day...Also, Weedle evolved!

Team:
Kakuna Lv 9
Poison Sting, String Shot

Audrey Lv 7
Vine whip, Growth

Zubat Lv 10
Leech life, Supersonic, Astonish

Hey guys! its been a while without any update, school is kinda driving me crazy.

==================================================
The jist of it :: I have just kicked Red buttom with my Yui/Dragonite/80
I have finished my challenged, but i have not documented it.. im even doing a story for it XD

Here is what i got so far

==================================================

With a gym badge under my belt Yui and I proceeded to the next gym location, Azalea and the bug-type gym. We stop to catch our breath at the Pokemon Center located before the Union Cave. After talking and battling a few trainers we went through the cave, with our fire spirits high and with new abilities to match.
It was raining when we got out of the cave, I decided to take Yui to the nearest Pokemon Center and wait for the rain to cease. In the center we once again talked to the trainers and some old folks who got me filled in some rumors. It seemed the Team Rocket was causing trouble at a well.
Yui seemed to get a bit melancholic while we look outside the Center’s window. I took the small pokemon an put it on my lap as I sat near the entrance. It was nice with the sound of the rain outside and the warmth of Yui… I fell asleep.
I felt something pulling me off my shirt and woke up to find Yui trying to say something and murmurs in the Pokemon Center about old man Kurt running to beat the Team Rocket. It seemed Yui wanted to help so I got my things and we followed the trail to the well…
Hours later I found myself in Kurt’s house, soaked wet and having a good laugh. Those grunts were no match for us, specially no match for Kurt. For my help in the matter, Kurt offered a cup of hot coffe and his service as a pokeball maker.
After spending the night in Kurt’s, I decided to take on the bug-type gym. The normal trainers were no match for Yui’s new technique, but things changed when we got to the leader. The fight started with my Yui versus a Syther from Bugsy. He used a technique called U-Turn, which critically wounded Yui and switch back to a Kakuna. I believed we could survive the fight after defeating Kakuna since they don’t attack, but to my surprised the Kakuna hopped and used tackle… we got defeated. We got to the conclusion it was bad luck and tried it again. Using the same tactics they won another round. Now we were mad, we got some potions and medicines to help us throughout the battle… Syther used Leer, U-Turn and with one shot he defeated us once again…
We noticed that his Syther was far more powerfull than us, but we were not giving up! We spent the following day training like there was no ending to it. I bet we cause a bit of chaos to the wilderness in the outskirts of the city. We now had power and speed to match up to Bugsy!
We went again and there was no holding back. Syther used UTurn and switched back, but we survived, the rest of the pokemons were no match for us, but we went versus Syther again, the real battle. Bugsy noticed the gap in strengths was thin, and he started Leer’ing us. I knew the end was near, and that we coul lose again in the next hit. Neither I nor Yui wanted to lose this time around so we charged full speed towards them. As we were going to make our finishing blow, Bugsy decided to halt us with quick attack…
My Team:
Yui / Dratini / 24
Egg
Egg

Tries in the Bug Gym ( 1/7 )
Total badges ( 2/8 )

With a new badge with us, Yui the two eggs and me decided to take on the next challenge! We followed the west route towards Goldenrod, battling trainers along the way and meeting the Day-Care folks, pretty nice people. One thing I found odd was this Kimono girl lost in the Ilex Forest, it’s the second time ive seen one…
Now into Goldenrod, I went in the Pokemon Center and rested for a while, thinking about the fight with Bugsy and how will the following gym will turn out.
After going to the Radio Station and picking a new radio card I went to the Gym, which turn out to be a walk in the park…
My Team:
Yui/ Dratini/ 25
Egg/
Egg/

Tries ( 1/1)
Total Badged ( 3/8 )

When the fight ended the Leader started to cry, after that o felt a rumbling on my back which turned to be another of my egg hatchin. The crying suddenly stop by the sounds of one cute little cloud-bird. While Witney holded and giggle at his cuteness I pulled out my PokeDex to check it out, it was Swablu: a bird pokemon that would later evolve into a dragon. Mugi, as the leader started calling my Swablu, came hopping to me with what seemed to be a smile on his face. It looked like the ours spent walking already made a bond between us.
With Witneys comment about training Miu as soon as possible, I went out the road to the next Gym battle, Ecruteak City
On our way to the city I started using Mugi for some battles. That turned out not so well because of the diference of experience of the pokemons I was facing. We decided to go back to the first strategy, taking things one step at a time. After a few hours, I could clearly see some improvement in Mugi, and even more inprovment in Yui, who seemed to enjoy every bit of mentoring.
Without noticing I was already falling asleep at the park. Yui and Mugi noticed it and went close to me to take a nap; I took the remaining egg and placed it on my lap as I sat. I think it was just dreams but I could swear I hear Yui and Mugi speaking to me, it was not English, but I understood… Then I heard that same melodic voice, it sounded happier than the first night, like she felt proud of my success… Then I hear another voice and I woke up to found who it was. There was a Bagon on my lap intead of the egg! The last one hatched… I named her Ritsu
After the not so needed introduction to the rest of the team I noticed how Yui wanted to go back to Goldenrod. It was like we left something unattended. Following that hunch and back in Goldenrod, I let Yui take the lead and directed me where he wanted to go... It saddened me what I found out. It seemed the Casino was offering pokemons as a price for wining… and one of those prices was a female Dratini! Yui and I put up our gaming bandana and decided to free her out of there, the official way… gambling…
It was four days later and I walked out of Goldenrod with four Pokemon in my team, a gym to challenge and a lot of training to do!

My Team:
Yui/ Dratinin/ 25
Mugi/ Swablu/ 15
Ritsu/ Bagon/ 10
Azunyan/ Dratini/ 15

Badges (3/8)
Days to get the second Dratini ( 3 )
I thought that my worst enemy was that Syther with U-turn… but that was until I met Morty, his Gengar and Shadow Ball. After a few tries at his gym me and my team decided to go for some serious training. I specifically wanted all of them to have the same level of experience. I don’t want any member of my team to feel lower than the rest. Keeping them the same level turned out to be a difficult task, especially with Yui who wanted to keep going at all times. On the other hand the most problematic was Mugi, that was not a dragon yet and that kept her at a disadvantage from the rest.
After a day full of training we head out to the dance theater to watch the Kimono girls. To our surprise there was a Team Rocket member harassing her. We decided to stop him! The thing is most of my team was pretty weak from all that training and couldn’t hold a single battle. At the end it was just Yui and me, like the first time. We handled the situation swiftly and to the surprise of all we all witnessed a pokemon evolution, a first for me. Now I have a beautifull and wonderful Dragonair in my arsenal, not to mention a friend larger than myself!
Is it enough to say that Morty’s Gengar was no match!?
Team:
Yui/Dragonair : 30
Mugi/ Swablu: 27
Ritsu/ Bagon: 28
Azunyan/Dratini: 20

Badges (4/8)








Did I mention I do not recall where I got the HM Surf? Now with the new badge I have access to it, we decided to go to the next gym in Olivine because there I can try it out!
A lot happened, we trained, got some more evolutions, surfed like there is no tomorrow, help save an Ampharos and won two new badges like it was nothing… it happened so fast I don’t recall much details of it!
Team:
Yui/Dragonair : 32
Mugi/ Swablu: 30
Ritsu/ Shelgon: 30
Azunyan/Dratini: 25

Badges (6/8)

Now the good stuff happens. In Olivine city they tell me about a gym in Mahogany that will prove a challenge for me: the Ice Gym, my worst nightmare. I decided to go and watch the Lake of Rage on the way, new places to surf!
I noticed my radio was acting strange as I approached the place, but it started getting weird with the behavior of the townsfolk, something seemed to be fake. I ran to the Lake in a hunch to encounter what seemed to be fate, another Dragon Tamer. Why I knew that (besides the part with the Dragonite by his side)? I don’t know. I approached him with my Yui following me. He acknowledge my presence and smiles like he was up to something. He knew my name, and I think I knew his before he told me… Lance explained that some radio signal was making the pokemon evolve forcefully and I decided to help stopping that!
A few hours later and we tore the place apart. I knew that sometimes I was a handful to Team Rocket… but I guess to Dragon Tamers was not good for them…

Legendarian Mistress is allowed to in-game trade for the Onix.

Umm, Legendarian Mistress, I don't remember being allowed to trade... I don't think in-game trades are allowed. :l

I don't remember NOT BEING allowed to in-game trade.

Rule #5 refers to trading between two games for things such as trading over a lvl 56 metagross or something of the sort just because it makes your steel challenge easier. Nah, don't think so homie.

._. Oh, in that case, cool. (Didn't exactly know what you meant by no trading in the first post. That's the only reason I brought it up.) Now I have another Fighting-type to get. :D

Oh wait, does that mean I can have a friend trade me some random Pokemon with an Evolutionary item, then I trade that Pokemon back? Or is that not included?

--On topic.
Real quick update, not a large one.

Demolished Ecruteak Gym, traded a Drowzee for Muscle the Machop in Goldenrod.

Team (Just levels this time. I don't see the point in posting moves. The only move changes were some HMs.)
Pory the Poliwhirl - Level 29 (Just beat the fisher who finds waterstones, so it'll be a Poliwrath soon. Bout time.)
Aaron the Mankey - Level 15
Muscle the Machop - Level 10

It would've been a Water Stone, but I got one from Fisherman Tully. Not gonna evolve Pory at the moment, though.

Anyways...

--UPDATE
Day 3

Not gonna be much today, since I'm 1, stuck on Chuck, 2, Incredibly underlevelled, so today is really just gonna be a grindfest.

Team is pretty much the same as last time, but:
Pory the Poliwhirl - Level 29
Muscle the Machop - Level 12
Aaron the Mankey - Level 16
Steve the Heracross - Level 24

Probably won't update much today, because I am generally lazy about that stuff, so it'll only be things like Gym leader wins and possibly evolutions.

Just remembered Steve had Aerial Ace. Must train him more.

Got Aaron and Muscle to level 20... I need to get all of them to 30, though... So, yeah. Not gonna be much updates today.

Ugh, sick of training... Aaron is level 21 and Muscle is still just 20...
Might as well try the Gym now.

Got a lucky Critical and OHKO'd Chucks Poliwrath. Jasmine is going to be easy.

Gonna stop for today. I know it wasn't much progress today, but I'm kinda tired of playing for hours and hours... Maybe a badge or long event a day. That's all that's necessary...

Legendarian Mistress
April 30th, 2010, 03:32 PM
Accidentally deleted my Ground type Monotype challenge information, but it doesn't matter. I arrived back in Ecruteak, with a level 23 Nidorino, and level 26 Quagsire and Onix. I'd already decided that if I lost to Morty even just once, I'd restart and do the Normal type Monotype challenge.

So, you want to know how I went...?

I lost.

I think I'm gonna take a small break, if that's ok. I'll be back on Sunday or Monday. :\ Not that I don't enjoy it, it's just starting to get tedious. (Although, I must admit, I kind of expected that from the start - using only one type.) (Watch me make a liar out of myself and update tomorrow. :P)

OK, yeah, not updating today, will be back soon though.

Well, seeing as I now have a rival for the Normal-type Mono-Challenge, I figure I better start updating on a near-daily basis again, so here's my update. Sorry about the delay though. I was wrestling with DeSmuME for an hour last night, trying to get all my DS ROMS to open with DeSmuME rather than no$gba. What a pain that was.


Grabbed my trusty Cut and Flash slave, Bellsprout, and my insane Surf killer croc, Totodile, out of the PC boxes I dropped them in and put them in my party. Miltank and Togetic are sitting this one out.
...Found a Raikou in the tall grass. No, I am not ♥♥♥♥ting you. After a single day of running, Raikou decided to chill out just barely south of Ecruteak. Almost caught it too, with the first Ultra Ball I threw. Got three shakes before it burst out. Not like it would have mattered though, since I can't use it anyway.
Trekked back to the Bike Shop, because I lost my last Bicycle.
Rode my Bicycle all the way back to Violet City, made a right turn, and entered Dark Cave.
After entering Dark Cave, I realized that my sprite self was gone. Not gone as in dead, but he's invisible now. That makes traversing this damn cave a real *****. Thank God for Max Repels.
Oh ****ing son of a **** eating dick! I need Strength now!? ARE YOU ****ING KIDDING ME!? What, did Game Freak decide that they are going to keep Teddiursa from everyone until after Olivine? This is real ****ing ********. I dragged my ass to Violet City for nothing.
On Route 37, I found Entei. Are you just ****ing kidding me now? What am I gonna find next, a ****ing Latias? Ultra Ball didn't catch it, it ran away, and I still don't give a ****.
Went back to Route 38, and beat every Trainer there, because I know they had a hand in denying me my Teddiursa.
Got a call from the Bike Store Manager, saying that, since I gave him a lot of advertisement, he's been selling a lot more Bicycles. He said he was going to give me a gift, and then tells me the Bicycle was the gift. Are you serious? I was going to keep this Bike regardless of whether or not you got good business from it. I want my cut of the profits, you parasitic-prick!
...Damn ROM crashed on me again. You know what? **** the Bicycle this time, and **** Teddiursa. I'm not going through that ******** again, ever. Teddiursa can wait until Blackthorn, and if it can't, it can go **** itself. Stupid ****ing ROM.
Met Silver again. I'm so tempted to just knock him out with Tauros and dump his body in the ocean. Not like anyone would miss him, the little bastard that he is.
****ing emulator closed out on me for no reason, so I'm stopping for the day before I become so enraged that I destroy my computer. I'm not posting my team this update either.

Edit: Stupid damn server was busy. Today is just not a good damn day for me. That better turn around quick, or I'm going to have so serious ****ing rage-fits. The ones that involve me having to stand before a judge and plead insanity.

I don't feel like doing the challenge anymore, I'm gonna withdraw.
Reason being, I haven't beaten Kanto yet, and the Monotype was fun for a while, but I just don't feel like it anymore. Sorry :/

Besides, 1HKOing every single one of the Elite Four's Pokemon with a LV.64 Adamant Gyarados is just so much more satisfying for me.

Maybe I'll get back into it later, in a new file. But when I do, I am definately doing water or flying so I can have Gyarados again.

Sorry to hear all that, but there's some good news. If you try to go into Mt Mortar a hiker comes out and gives you strength, so there is no need to go to
Olivine. =D

Also, is it okay to trade over a Houdour egg...I just realized that it couldn't be caught before the Elite 4.

Update:

-Saved Kimono girl from some random rocket grunt and met the all famous Bill.
-Caught an eevee, or rather got one from Bill. While leaving town Lyra's grandpa caught up to me and told me about a way to get an eevee that knew Wish. Don't know why I would want that to happen, but he told me to go catch a female Girafarig while I left the eevee with ditto and to train Togepi along the way, while holding the soothe bell. I think he's up to one of those breeding games again...and I'm the guinea pig once again...

First I'd like to say hello to everyone,because this is my first post. I'll do the ROCK monotype challange.


Started ROM,named myself Kurumi<coolnotehere>.



Got everything from Mom and Chikorita named Leaf Boy because it's male.



Going to catch Adamant Geodude.

Ok I have a simple question can I catch Pokemon just to fill Pokedex and get tools from Aides?


PS.I'll edit this post

You can get a murkrow from the fifth pokewalker course, which is why I brought the pokewalker and my ds to track with me. It only costs 500 watts so it shouldn't be too hard to get.

Also thanks for allowing the items and Houndour egg!

Yes, you can catch for your pokedex. It's better if you just write new posts so we can all see your updates.

I'll add in the new challengers soon.

If I did this with Dragon type, it wouldn't be cheating if I used a lvl 1 Giratina would it?

Giratina is a Legendary Pokemon, therefore, it is excluded from the challenge. If you wanted to import something like Dratini or Bagon (or Swablu), then I'm sure .EJ wouldn't mind. But Legendaries? I doubt it.

--Update, day 4.
Alright, I'm back. But, I need to do a lot of grinding, because the only one over level 30 is Pory, and the rest are 25 and lower, I believe. So, yeah, I tried to fight Jasmine but failed since I forgot that her Magnemites could Paralyze me quite easily. (And, If I didn't post it earlier, I wiped out Chucks team with Aerial Ace.)

Urgh, getting these guys to level 35 is hard... I'll tough it out, though. (Just a sidenote, I'm getting a laptop soon, so if for some reason I haven't completed the game by then, there will be more updates.)

I must know, what are some great training spots for Fighting-types? I need help. :l

Small update: Shockingly, I am getting mutilated by Jasmine. Just hit 10 hours of playtime. I guess I've made alright progress, but still, not too far.

Finally decided to evolve Pory. Dunno why I held off so long. Back to grinding!

May 3rd, 2010, 08:48 PM
Havent got much time to play all day, Will have more time tomorrow to continue.
So far i have a Caterpie and my Spinarak.
Chikorita just incase i need to change to a pokemon to heal the others. :P
Will be put in PC after i obtain Heracross. :D
Then to come will be Scyther or Pincer, Haven't decided.

Will update when i get farther, Going after Bellsprout tower soon.

Toxic Potato
May 3rd, 2010, 09:27 PM
Wow. Just wow. Out of all the moves I have, Surf is the only move that took either Magnemite below half HP in a single hit. I mean, what?! Ugh, well regardless, I beat Jasmine. I kinda want another Fighting-type, but the only other ones "gettable" are ones that require waiting like 70 days for the Safari Zone (Riolu), or beating the game entirely (Torchic). Well, with the exception of Tyrogue, who I am definitely getting once I beat whatever Gym lets you use Waterfall, and Waterfall itself. I really want a Toxicroak, too, though.

Oh, hurr, team update:
Pory the Poliwrath - Level 33
Surf
Blizzard
Body Slam
Hypnosis

Steve the Heracross - Level 27
Aerial Ace
Cut
Counter
Shadow Claw

Muscle the Machop - Level 26
Low Kick
Vital Throw
Strength
Revenge

Aaron the Mankey - Level 27
Focus Punch
Focus Energy
Karate Chop
Seismic Toss

Just realized that my Pokemon have pretty good Natures, 'cept Muscles, who's Defense is hindered a bit, but the rest are just fine.

Nice! Got a two-in-one! Both Aaron and Muscle evolved after just one battle! Currently in the Mahogany Rocket Hideout.

I consider Onix/Golem/Rhydon the same thing because they have the same types.

IDK about Steelix d:

Uhm, I'm thinking I'll add Swinub/Piloswine and call it a team.

Nidoking - Poison/Ground
Quagsire - Water/Ground
Golem - Rock/Ground
Piloswine - Ice/Ground

Well rounded if you ask me D:

I don't believe I've updated my latest conquest. Well I traveled to this weird town that seems deserted. The citizens speak of slowpokes but I've yet to see any. I talk to the town's honcho, Kurt and he quickly rushed toward that Team Rocket guy near the well. Once I get there, I see nobody...which I found strange...however I descended the ladder to find Kurt hurt (<----it rhymes ^.^)

I proceeded to defeat the enemies with Poochyena and Sneasel easily. Once that was done, I challenged the Bug gym where in the process of battling a bug catcher, my Poochyena finally evolved. With a Mightyena in my arsenal, I made it to Bugsy and I knew I had nothing to fear (aside from Scyther that is.) I sent Pluto out first and I told it to howl. He did so twice but Scyther used U-turn and switched out. It left quite a mark on Pluto but with two howls under my belt, I easily took care of Metapod and Kakuna. The Scyther finished off Pluto, but now it was Ares the Sneasel's turn, and it outspeeded Scyther and landed a STAB super-effective ice punch. Bye bye scyther.

That's it so far, I've been kinda busy with school/graduation stuff/meh.

As sad as it is, with as much work as I've put into my entries and how surprisingly attached I've become to my little Electric type Pokemon, I think I'm going to drop out of this challenge, at least for now, as I've decided to pursue a solo-run challenge instead and want to use my HeartGold.

When I finish the challenge, I may make another attempt at this, maybe with another type... I've been thinking about a poison challenge tbh, mostly cause it could be fun leveling with Muk, Weezing and so on.

Anyways, take care all - EJ, you do have a hell of a challenge here - and one day, I will be one of your champions!

.EJ, you can get it in the Safari Zone. I believe it is in the Desert. Probably wrong about the Desert part though. You need 20 Rock decorations in there, too, IIRC.

And...
--Update, Day 6 (I think.)
Sorry for nothing really happening yesterday. Was tired and went to sleep real early, so yeah.

Anyways, I traversed to the deep, dark... Well, observation deck of the Radio Tower after "rescuing" the real Director from the Goldenrod Underground, and fighting my rival, Simmnof. (I don't know about the name, I just typed in random letters.)
There, I met Archer, who proceeded to DIE... Well, who I proceeded to destroy. Still on the Observation Deck. Almost halfway done with the game. But as soon as I get the 8th badge and Waterfall (Finally, a use for my Totodile), I'm gonna take a quick detour to Mt. Mortar and get myself a Tyrogue.

Having a bit of trouble in the Blackthorn Gym, so I'm probably gonna go train in the ice cave thingy.

You get Larvitar in the Mountain Zone in the Safari Zone. You can only get one in Morning/Day and it's got like a 5% encounter rate. I ran into three (all female :/) and they all ran.

You need to have four badges and access the the Zone Changing Machine.

I NEED A MOON STONE DESPERATELY! I WANT TO EVOLVE MY NIDORINO AT LEVEL 42! IF YOU HAVE A SPARE PM or VM ME PLEASE!

UPDATE:

- I don't feel like elaborating, but beat the Radio Tower mission
- Silver Wing obtained.

Been a few days since I last updated, cause I got side-tracked by Dragon Quest, and BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Portable. Now's let's get on with the show.

Note: To Blazenwing, we'll miss you. Your updates were awesome, and I know that, eventually, you'll come back to us, and become part of the Champions.


Well, it turns out that my SoulSilver didn't SAVE after beating Chuck and Jasmine, which means I've gotta do it again. Normally, I'd be extremely pissed off, but seeing as I didn't really put much effort in my last update, I see this as a chance to try again.
My ROM did SAVE before battling Chuck though, so let's start with that, shall we?

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/d/d8/ChuckHGSS.gif



Using my Level 40 Fearow, I completely ripped holes through Chuck's entire team. He did manage to get one hit off using Poliwrath, with Body Slam. I wasn't Paralyzed, he didn't heal with a Hyper Potion (since he was in the Yellow HP range, due to his Sitrus Berry), and I destroyed him next turn with Aerial Ace.
Got a Storm Badge, bringing my total up to five badges.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4a/Zephyr_Badge.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/08/Hive_Badge.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a7/Plain_Badge.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/48/Fog_Badge.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/b9/Storm_Badge.png


Now, I can use Fly to get back to Olivine... but I don't wanna. Instead, I'm gonna Surf back, so I can grind a bit more. Oh yeah, I also got TM 01, DynamicPunch. I doubt I'll ever use it, since its only real use is on Machamp, due to its No Guard ability.
Whoops, it wasn't DynamicPunch, but Focus Punch! Still, Focus Punch sucks in-game anyway. Never gonna use it, and I'm sellin' it for cash.
Returned to Olivine on Totodile's back, deposited Totodile in the PC, and ran to the Lighthouse. That damn Amphy better not have died yet, or I'm going to be extremely pissed off.
Took the elevator to the top floor, and luckily, Amphy has not expired. When asked if the SecretPotion would cure Amphy, I said 'No', for teh lulz. Then said 'Yes', cause I'd like my Gym Badge now.
TOO DAMN BRIGHT! Damn it, Amphy! How about some warning before you do that?!
Jasmine left via stairs, and I took the elevator, yet somehow, she still managed to get to the Gym before me.
Got an interesting call from the Safari Zone Warden. Apparently, the Safari Zone is now open. I wonder if they've got any Normal-type Pokemon...
Got two pep talks from two separate people in the Gym. Not that I needed it, seeing as my Togetic's Fire Blast makes me rather confident. I'm glad most Steel-types have piss-poor Special Defense.


http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/d/d9/JasmineHGSS.gif



Jasmine said something about clank, or clang, but did not mention Ratchet. +5 Internetz if you understand that joke.
Togetic destroyed Jasmine's entire team with Fire Blast alone. The only Pokemon that wasn't a OHKO was Steelix, who was left in the Yellow HP (due to Sitrus Berry), and Burned.

Ok, small update. I've got Pory up to level 44, Muscle to 40 or 41, and Aaron to 34. Steve is still behind, so I need to train Aaron and Steve up more.

Finally, Steve learned a good Fighting-type move, which would be Close Combat. Shame it only has 5 PP... Well, at 44 it learns Reversal, which also isn't terrible... And then Megahorn at 55. :D Well, that's a long way away, so I shouldn't get my hopes up so much. (And a side-note, training Tyrogue - once I get him - up to the norm team level is going to be so incredibly fun! Probably going to evolve him into Hitmonlee.)

Team (Done grinding for now.) -
Muscle the Machoke (Evolving soon, I just dunno when) - Level 41
Cross Chop
Revenge
Vital Throw
Wake-Up Slap


(No HM move b/c of Move Deleter.)
(Muscle needs a moveset update...)


Pory the Poliwrath - Level 44
Focus Blast
Blizzard
DynamicPunch
Surf


Steve the Heracross - Level 39
Shadow Claw
Focus Blast
Aerial Ace
Close Combat

(No HM move b/c of Move Deleter.)


Aaron the Primeape - Level 39
Focus Punch
Thunder
Iron Tail
Karate Chop

Going back to the Gym, now.

Getting Killed by Clair a lot. I'm not having trouble, I just need a better strategy.

>.> <.<
UPDATE TIME!!!!!
'll try to make it entertaining, but this is the SECOND time that I'm writing this, so forgive me if my enthusiasm is less than OOOOOOOO.

Okay:
I raced through union cave, trying to be as awesome as possible and also slaughtering many a helpless Geodude. When I finally made it out, I got caught in a torrential downpour and had to rush to the Pokemon Center. On the way there, i saw a man being hassled by a team rocket operative. Uh Oh. That's not good.I raced towards the pokemon center and healed up, just as the rain stopped.

I decided that I could use some help before fighting team rocket, so i went around town and asked if anyone could help me. they all refused. Finally I found myself outside of Kurt's house, AKA the legendary pokebal creator. As I entered he rushed past, complaining about Team Rocket. I ran after him, eager to get some action. When I got to the slowpoke well, Kurt was nowhere to be seen, so i took a peak down the well. Kurt was lying on the ground, and he wasn't moving. I rushed down after him, and after checking his pulse, I continued on. Team Rocket was the main priority.

Man, I thought Team Rocket was supposed to be tough. I barely even broke a sweat, and I faced proton with ease as well. When I finished opening up a can of whoopin', I decided to go check on my elderly friend. He was standing up, and was grinning from ear to ear. He thanked me vigorously, and then brought me back to his house, where I patched up my pokemon and accepted his offer to make pokeballs. I stepped outside and felt one of my pokeballs wiggle. I released Kakuna who had her eyes squeezed shut. A large white crack appeared on her shell, and out burst a Beedrill! She flew over to me and landed on my head, and began punching the air furiously. Perfect.....

Around seven battles and an hour of Grinding later, I was standing in front of Bugsy with a smile on my face and a hive badge in my hand. This was really quite great. I then healed, and proceeded to the forest, only to be intercepted by Silver. He smiled at me and sent out gastly, whose life was brought to a close by a bite from Lucy(Ekans). I proceeded to defeat all of his pokemon with ease, and when he stood there without a pokemon, he shouted out some random insult before running away. Man, my day was getting better and better!

Ugh. I just spent about 15 minutes wrangling Farfetch'd in the forest. those charcoal guys need to get their pokemon properly trained. I accepted the HM that they gave me and walked deeper into the forest, picking up an oddish and a Paras, before naming the Paras HMslave02. I chuckled briefly, and ran into a kimono girl, who looked at me curiously. My butterfree showed her the way out, and I followed, eager to leave this place. I stepped out of the darkness and into the light, and was intercepted by Lyra and her Grandparents. I deposited paras into the PC, and oddish into the daycare before heading into the nearby city of Goldenrod.

I took a walk in the national park, and the area outside of it, when I ran into a nidoran female! I caught her with ease, and named her Nina. I checked her moves and gawked; she knew double kick! Hopefully that would be my pass to defeating Whitney. I headed back to Goldenod, and noticed a peculiar purple tent. I went inside and met the name rater, who said that I could change the names of my pokemon. I went through my party, and gave each one a decent nickname:

Beedrill: Pinz
Ekans: Lucy (Lucifer would have been my choice for male)
Zubat: Buffy
Bellsprout: Audrey
Nidoran: Nina

My pokemon seemed to like their nicknames, and I figured that that was good. I walked into the underground path, and ran into the younger haircut brother, who gave Buffy a haircut. She looked happy, and I went to the department store to pick up some super potions.

After fighting Whitney twice, i finally defeated her and that darn Miltank. I was also treated to another pleasant surprise: Nina evolved!

After defeating whitney(And watching her cry) I received my badge and decided that it was time to move on. Next stop: Ecruteak.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whew, the road to ecruteak was long and hard, and I really needed to heal afterward, so i did! I fought off a pesky Team Rocket operative, and then saw the three legendary dogs inside the burned tower. Morty told me he'd be waiting.

Bite, bite, bite,bite, BUFFY EVOLVED! And morty was easy, I just bit his pokemon to death. Heh Heh. Stupid Morty.

I decided that since I could use Surf now, I'd explore some areas of the Ruins of Alph. I Taught my HMslave01 Surf, and went exploring. I saw the entrance to a new room, and went inside, exited. When I went in, I discovered a secret room! I released Nina, and suddenly she evolved! I guess there was a moonstone on the floor.....

Well, now that I had four badges(And a nidoqueen!), I decided it was time for a seaside battle, so I proceeded to Olivine. Only....Jasmine wasn't there. She was in the lighthouse... I walked up the stairs, battling as I went, when suddenly, Audrey, Lucy, and Buffy evolved in rapid succession! I grinned and continued up the lighthouse, until I ran into jasmine. She was over an injured pokemon, and she asked me to go to cianwood for some medicine. I nodded, and ran as fast as I could.

On the way to Olivine, I ran into a tentacruel. I caught it quickly and named it Huggy, as it was VERY affectionate. With my new pokemon in tow, I landed on Cianwood, ready to battle chuck and get the medicine...........

Wow, it's been so fast. 8 badges already? Well, almost. Clair wants to whine and not give me my badge. What the... Nevermind. Well, time to get that ExtremeSpeed Dratini. (That I'll obviously never use. Unless I decide to do a Mono-Dragon playthrough. Although, that's highly unlikely.)

All right, all 8 badges of Johto obtained, ExtremeDratini obtained. Gonna get Tyrogue, train it, then it'll be time to face the Elite 4!

By the way, this wasn't really made clear in the main post. Does the challenge include fighting Red, or is that what you meant by Champion? Nevermind, cleared up by the post beneath this one.

Ok, Tyrogue gotten, named Kento (Sisters suggestion :P), and now it's time to feed it a few vitamins to ensure proper evolution into Hitmonlee. Then to train it, andprogress in the game. Oh yeah... The Ho-oh sidequest... Ugh... Don't wanna do that. D: WOW... Kimono Girl whatevers Espeon, is GSJRHGEFJSEOIGHEIOFH... Nothing else to say about it.

Cool, Kento evolved, and into the one I wanted, so all is good. Now to stop FAILING against Vaporeon...

Ok, Vaporeon murdered... Er, defeated. Now to scale Bell Tower, my most hated location in the entire game...

Finally... Caught Ho-oh in my shiny, new Master Ball, because I was too lazy to fight it, and I had nothing else to use the Master Ball on.

Yay. I'm on the way to the Pokemon League. I am so ecstatic. You can hear the ENTHUSIASM, can't you? I'm so enthusiastic. (Going to fail the Elite 4 many times. Especially the Psychic guy, because IIRC, there is one. :P I kinda wanna train Kento more, but eh, that can wait, I guess...)

And that's it for today. Cya all tomorrow!

I think you got what it takes to become a champ, arcelio =]

Just for that comment, I'm not stopping my Challenge until I've become Champion, and kicked Red's ass. Guess Dragon Quest will just have to wait a bit longer for me.


.EJ's words have inspired me, so my Challenge shall continue today!
Departed from the Olivine Gym, in search of my next Badge, the Glacier Badge!
Had Fearow fly me to Ecruteak City, and went east, towards Mahogany Town.
OW! Some Hiker ******* hit me! Cops!
I don't give a damn if you're giving me a HM! You hit me! I'm calling the cops on your punk ass... Ah, is that the HM for Strength? Gimme! Gimme now and I might drop the charges on you!
Heh, heh, sucker. Free HM, and when I take that guy to court, I'll take his house. No one hits me and survives. And Marill, if you're listening, I'm coming for you with a vengeance!
Taught Tauros Strength over Horn Attack, instead of Ambipom or Miltank. Miltank is my tank Pokemon, and Ambipom will be getting the TM for Return the moment I get it.
Entered Mt. Mortar. I sprayed myself with some Repel, cause I don't feel like dealing with Zubat today, nor Ratatta.
Stupid rocky walls. Can't I just climb up them? I mean, if a Pokemon can scale them, why can't I exactly?

Found an Ultra Ball, Ether, Max Potion, Escape Rope, Nugget, and a Revive. Yeah, I pillaged the crap out of this mountain. Only thing I didn't get was a Shiny Stone, to evolve my Togetic.
Left Mt. Mortar, only to be harassed by some prick that thinks he owns the entire Route. I promptly handed him his own ass and told him to GTFO.
Got lied to by a Hiker that can't even bypass a simple waterfall. It's called
94000130 FCFD0200 1205D506
00000200 D2000000 00000000 94000130
FCFD0100 1205D506 00001C20
D2000000 00000000
You noob. lrn2haxorpogeymanz
Entered Mahogany Town, and sped off to the Gym.
A Snorlax is blocking the door to the Gym. Well, either a Snorlax, or a fat *******. I always get those two confused.
Tried to leave town through the east, only to be stopped by some shady looking character. Bought a 'RageCandyBar' just to shut him up, and tried to leave. The prick just won't let me leave, will he? He shall pay for his impudence in due time, along with that Snorlax.
Turned on my Radio Card to listen to some tunes, only for it to be jammed by a mysterious signal. Seriously, what the hell? First, some Pokemon blocks off a Gym, I can't leave town, and I can't even listen to my damn music? This is why I told mother to buy me an iPod, but no. She just had to get this damn Pokegear.
Met Spencer on the above Route, only for him to tell me that he can do 'a lot' with his Pokemon. I swear, these freakin' perverts are multiplying. Destroyed all of his Pokemon out of mercy.
Oh Christ, I got another call from Joey. **** 'em, I'm not picking up the phone. Let it ring for all I care.
Walked into the guard-post, only to be greeted by Rockets. They robbed me (I think?) of some money, which doesn't really matter, seeing as I rarely buy anything anyways. Still, just for being Rockets, they've earned a spot on my 'DESTROY' list, along with that RageCandyBar asshat.
Found a Girafarig. Decided to catch it, since it's the only Normal/Psychic Pokemon that I can think of, and it can be useful to the team (eventually).
Saved my game and went to work on PlayStationPortable. Gotta add some GameBoyAdvance games to that thing today. Not gonna add my current team, since it hasn't changed since the last update.

.EJ
May 6th, 2010, 01:22 PM
Nah, you can't because flying types aren't rare.

You get access to pidgey, spearow, zubat, butterfree, scyther, hoppip...and others pretty early on.

A type such as dark, ice, steel, etc. will require an egg.

damn. any ways, i have started. caught a hoothoot. end team is probably gonna be somewhere along the lines of Noctowl, Jumpluff, Skarmory, Delibird, Crobat, and someone else. anyone got good ideas for a sixth?

.EJ
May 6th, 2010, 01:53 PM
Scyther lolol

People forget he was fully evolved for an entire generation and he was damn good.

A solid 110 base attack and 105 base speed.

@sweed: you didn't let nidorino learn poison jab?

TotoPacMan
May 6th, 2010, 01:56 PM
i don't wanna use more bug types. i trained a lv.15 scyther to a lv.68 Scisor and im not doing it again (not without evolution)

.EJ
May 6th, 2010, 01:59 PM
I can see how that could "bug" you

LMAO that was cheesy...but yeah, you could use pidgeot or fearow.

Sweed
May 6th, 2010, 01:59 PM
@sweed: you didn't let nidorino learn poison jab?

When you beat Janine the TM you get is Poison Jab, so I figure, let Nidoking get Earth Power for STAB now, and teach it Poison Jab later, that way I get both.

If it really comes to it, I can always trade one over d: (if that's not cheating).

And along with Arcelio I plan on going all the way to Red before I consider this challenge beat (;

You can count me as a Ground Champion, .EJ!!

.EJ
May 6th, 2010, 02:05 PM
Yeah you guys got the enthusiasm but do you have the will to pull through? =p

May 6th, 2010, 02:54 PM
And the challenge begins again.


Started where I left off, Route 43. Next stop, Lake of Rage.
I think I may have over-leveled. My entire team is just steamrolling through every Trainer that challenges me. One Trainer mentioned a redhead mocking his Pokemon. Dammit, how does he keep beating me places?! He doesn't even have the necessary HMs to get here in the first place, and even if he did, he doesn't have any Gym Badges!
Okay, now it's raining. What the hell happened to the weather just now?
Due to my immense stupidity, I did not bring a Pokemon that can Surf to the Red Gyarados. I decided to teach Miltank Surf, since it could use a decent way of attacking Rock/Ground-types, other than Zen Headbutt. Got rid of Rollout to make room.

Jumped on the back of my swimming cow and rode out to the Red Gyarados, who's ass I proceeded to kick into next week. Nabbed a free Red Scale, which'll come in handy when I have to Level Grind later on (if I have to at all).
Talked to 'Lance', some dude with a cool Dragonite that wears a cape...in public. Seriously, why don't you just stamp 'Cosplayer' on your forehead and call it a day? Also, it, according to him, takes skill to kill a Level 30 Gyarados with a Level 40 Ambipom. Whatever you say, guy. I agreed to help him in whatever investigation he's working on, since it might help me move lard-ass out of the way of the Gym door.

Why is Magikarp being forced to evolve a bad thing? Magikarp suck major ass. Gyarados is practically king of the Overused competitive Pokemon scene. He had his Dragonite Fly him away, even though he could have just walked to Mahogany. Lazy prick...
Walked back to the Pokemon Center, healed up the team, and walked into the souvenir shop. Apparently, it's fishy or something. *Cough*DRUG DEN*Cough*. Sorry about that cough. I meant to say 'Drug Den'.
Watched some NPC get thoroughly pwned by a Dragonite's Hyper Beam. The only thing that angers me is that, instead of completely disintegrating the guy on contact, it knocks him into a wall. A Dragonite can bring down a Legendary Pokemon with its Hyper Beam, but it can't defeat a single human being? Fail Dragonite is Fail. I knew Salamence was better.
What took me so long? Unlike you, I don't abuse my Pokemon and force them to fly me every goddamn place, prick. Why is it that every redhead I've met is a complete ass to me? First it was Silver, that beat me, then Lance, who's just a secret-*******. He pretends to try to help the Magikarp, but seriously, he's an ass about it.
Oh shi-! The Persian statues have cameras for eyes! And yet, it doesn't matter, cause I can still beat down any and all Rockets.
Ending the update there for today. Didn't really do much, but school has me exhausted, and I want to at least start Dragon Quest: Joker.

May 6th, 2010, 03:10 PM
Update, day 7, IIRC.

Ok, I am officially stuck forever at Will. (Well, thats over-exaggeration, and by the way, I've decided to maybe do a Steel-type, Normal-type, or Dragon-type run after this, since I really enjoy doing this.)

Yeah, I ran 1-300 in a RNG and got 139 (1-100, Normal, 101-200, Steel, and 201-300, Dragon), so, I'm doing Steel-type next. (Importing Riolu FTW.)

Not gonna update much today, will only do so for each Elite 4, since there is nothing really to update about. :P

TotoPacMan
May 6th, 2010, 03:54 PM
I'm scrapping that Jumpluff idea. added in Pidgeot, and still debating for the sixth guy. between Gyarados and Murkrow at the moment. (are there any non-legend flying pokemon who lean fire or grass moves) and does anyone know where to get multiple aerial ace TMs?

anyways, the sprout tower was probably the easiest thing I'll encounter until Buggsy or whatever his name is (if i spelled that right). totally forgot zubat was in Dark Cave (doh!). ran from like 15 geodudes before i found one. started training him in the gym. yay for the quick switch out! Falkner's Pidgeotto suuuucks sooooo bad. Thanks to Hootsie the Hoothoot's Hypnosis, i kept off the onslaught long enough to heal my way to victory. now i'm on my way to Azalea Town.

Whaddya know! Halfway done! Yep, I beat the Elite 4! 8 more badges and I'm done, right? I'd fight Red too, but I'm just too lazy...

Well, time to start my adventures in Kanto! Well, I'd be excited if I liked Kanto, but it's not my favorite region. Johto forever! :P Well, actually, I want to grind a bit. Going to get my guys to ~50, so probably nothing special for the rest of the day. :l

Blargh... Still stuck in the boat. (Not for 2 hours straight, I saved and took a small break. :P)

Oh yeah, I have to play hide-and-seek.

Ok, in Vermillion City, or whatever. Time to grind. May or may not update again today.

Nothing game related, but I finally got a new laptop, so updating will hopefully be more frequent. As for the game, 2/5 at level 50. I'm done for the day, so see everyone tomorrow. (Unless I choose to make a liar out of myself again and play more anyways.)

You can get chinchou, jolteon and magnemites like you said. Plus I would allow one pichu egg to help you get started. I'm missing somebody...I think.

Edit: Voltorb as well

Or maybe just catch one of the three electrodes in the rocket hideout.

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