New Challenge Time!

Objective: Beat the elite four with a single battling Pokemon
Rules:
1) The challenge is over once you beat the elite four one time.
2) Unless your Pokemon is one of the starters, or a Pokemon that you can catch before the first trainer battle, you may trade an egg over from another game. If you are emulating it, you may just hack in the Pokemon. Egg moves are ok to use.
3) If you are emulating it, don't use any cheats like infinite health. Just get your Pokemon.
4) You may not use Legendaries.
5) More than one person can use the same Pokemon.
6) You can evolve your solo runner

I got 8 to lvl 100 on pokemon silver, and 12 to lvl 100 on pokemon ruby/pearl (most migrated before lvl 100 because it's easier to level them on pearl). I used rare candies on at least 2, maybe 3

Of course I will accept you if you want to go again. Personally, I think Numel would be much harder, because it can only learn like Rock, Ground, and Fire moves, while Altaria can learn all sorts of stuff. But that's just me.

Also, CONGRATULATIONS to our two new champions.

otherwise i'd totally be up for it

Awesome, xD so which do you think i should do for my first platinum solo run? (meaning before our shuckle race) Blastoise or Aggron?

aggron is by far stronger, but he levels super slow IMO, and his special is super low which will also make it hard

blastoise has overall nice stats and great defenses, itll be easier to blow threw all but the 2nd,& last gym with him.

Well if i was gonna do aggron it'd be physical based. And i could always use a nature to boost his sp def.... And he has more type coverage (if i remember right)

And I just kinda like Blastoise, don't have any real reason for him xD

He's not necessarily my fav. xD or anywhere near. It's just Idk i kinda have a 'i love him but i hate him' type thing. xD Fav is Tauros, especially after that run i just did xD.

Hmm I think I'll try Aggron then if he's gonna be harder. xD I can do Blastoise after our Shuckle run

Well I finally got everyone off platinum and restarted it. So far I managed to get Zen (my squirtle) onto plat as an egg, hatched and at level 13. Haven't fought Roark yet however. =]

Edit: Zen fought bravely, one hitting all the gym trainer's pokemon and evolving into wartortle just before his fight with Roark and then bravely stepped up and demolished Roark's team as well. Gaining a level in the process!!

Current lvl: 17

Edit: Reached Eterna just fine. Went straight to the gym and pulverized the whole lot of them. Then got to Gardenia and managed to destroy her until her Roserade survived a hit and paralyzed Zen. She proceeded to use Magical leaf after which Zen couldn't move. She used magical leaf again leaving Zen with 1 hp left and then he finished her off.

Current lvl: 34

Okay, I'll be playing Platinum and trading over an egg containing my soon-to-be faithful sidekick, Dratini. Which I will evolve all the way. =3 I can't wait to meet the little guy. Or girl, y'never know. And I'll be starting the challenge tomorrow. If I'm accepted, that is ^_^;.

Sorry guys, I just got back from a vacation with my friends where there was supposedly internet, but one of my friends lied and there really wasn't any. But I'm back now, so things will be picking up once again as soon as I finish updating. Both our new challengers are added to the list, as well as one of our veteran challengers. If I forget to include anyone's update, just PM me and I'll fix it as soon as I can. Thanks guys!

Update!


Started in Twinleaf Town. Named myself Elise and my rival Lee.
Headed out with Lee for adventure, bumped into Prof Rowan, and.. Fancy that! For our foolishness he rewarded us with pokemon! Chose Chimchar.
Went home, talked to my mom, she said have fun and gave me a journal :)
Caught my first pokie! Only to trade it for my precious Dratini egg, with whom I will be doing the challenge
Hatched my egg (gosh this took forever... I think ten thousand some odd steps xD). It was a girl, named her Toothless.
Oh yeah, she hatched with the eggmove Hyper Beam, but it's still practically useless at level 1, FYI.
Went through Jubilife, defeated Lee no problem, then on to Oreburgh.
Arrived in Oreburgh, talked to Roark and then lost once to him. (actually, is Roark a boy or a girl, I can never tell.) It was disappointing but I'm trying again as I type.


Pokemon
Dratini (Toothless)
Level: 15
Moves
Dragon Rage
Twister
Hyper Beam
Thunder Wave



Argh... I was really close to defeating Roark (it was a lot easier with Dragon Rage...) But his/her stupid Cranidos keeps Headbutting me to death...


I'll post more later. Here goes for try number three against Roark.. D:<

EDIT: Defeated Roark!!! Cranidos used Leer first instead of Headbutt, and then I finished him off with 2 hits of Dragon Rage.. Thank Gawd.....

*yawn* Here's an update.

So, I beat Rourk, that's old news. Left Oreburgh.
Defeated the two Team Galactic Grunts, with a little help from Lucas and headed up to Floaroma.
Helped out the little girl to save her father. Which included getting into the Valley Windworks and defeating Mars.
Beat all the Trainers on Route 205.
Made it through Eterna Forest with the help of Cheryl. (OMG, we're, like, totally BFF's now. Ya. :))
Met Cynthia... Saw Lee... Blah blah blah.
Defeated Gardenia and got the Forest Badge, which was a piece of cake ^_^
Cynthia gave me an egg... Went down the bike road, went through that cave, Mt. Whatever-it-is-called, I can't quite recall at the moment.
Uhm. Saw my mom, I guess that she's big into showing Pokemon and I never knew it. Who knew, eh?
Made it though Fantina's gym trainers, (Evolved Toothless at lvl 31 into Dragonair!) then beat Fantina with only 2 HP left. Whew....
Now I'm on Route 209. Woot. :)

This is going to be my first solo run on the 4th Gen games. I was thinking carefully about what pokemon would be right for this kind of challenge. In the end I chose Staryu. I think its a powerful pokemon, it can learn thunderbolt, psychic, ice beam, and surf.
If I can I'd like to sign up with a Staryu (i'll use pokemon modifier code to get it early). Also I'll be using Pokemon Diamond.
P.S Elise you don't start in Newbark, you start in Twinleaf :)

EDIT:
Started The game,
Named myself Andy
Named rival Jake
Picked Turtwig as starter
Got through all the crap to get my poke balls
caught a lv 5 Staryu: named it Vars

-Started the game, picked piplup as a starter.
-Battled my rival (Freddy) and just barely beat him.
-Traded Charmander egg -> it hached and so I called him Zippy.
-Grinded Zippy up to level 10 before battling the youngsters, and so he grew to level 11 by the time I reached Jubilife city.
-Met Looker and all that malarky, went to the trainer school etc beat them easily.

Charmander (Zippy) - Level 11:
Nature: Impish
Ability: Blaze
Attacks: Scratch / Ember / Metal Claw / Dig.

-Beat the trainers along route 203, got Rock Smash, taught it to Coober (the bidoof HM slave).
-Fought the Oreburgh mine people, which lead to Zippy evolving into Charmeleon :)
-Beat Roark fairly easy with the use of dig. (you gotta' love egg moves..)

Charmeleon (Zippy) is now on level 18 after beating the oreburgh gym. :)

So, UPDATE:

Left Hearthome City after getting the badge, Beat Rival Lee.
Up Route 209 to Solaceon Town, I didn't spend much time there though, skipped the ruins, I'll come back later to explore and do the Unown. I was a little too bored to do it then.
Beat all the trainers on Route 210 and made it to Veilstone.
Trained up a bit then took on the 3rd gym leader (what's her name again? Marlene?) Beat her on the second try xD.
Trained some more on Route 214 then helped Ethan get his Pokedex back.
Got HM Fly.



Sorry it's so short, I'll edit it in a bit. I've been playing SS and Pearl a lot lately too so I haven't spent as much time on is as I could've...

Awh, I didn't know these types of threads existed! I've been doing a Solo run on Diamond with a Lucario (Hatched from an egg given to me by Riley on Platinum and traded it to Diamond as an egg. Riolu, then it evolved.) I've already gotten three badges with it, and I'm slightly annoyed I could have made a record of my progress haha!

Next time I'll have to do that. Good luck to everyone!

Yeah, that's how I got introduced to challenges. I thought I was so great when I came up with the idea of only using a single type, and then bam it was already here. Made me sad. But sure, go ahead and start posting your progress now. It's so much better than people saying "Oh, I've already done that. Give me credit for it now!" At least you're updating some. I sometimes start the challenge, and just type my update as I go, and then beat it, so it ends up being one huge post. Trust me, you're fine.

Alight then, I'll enter it :3

Game: Diamond
Player name: Diamond
Rival name: Mello
Pokémon: Riolu (Has evolved) Lucario.
Nickname: Ylia
Gender: Female
Type: Fighting/Steel
Nature: Docile
Ability: Steadfast
Level: 47
Moves: Dark Pulse, Aura Sphere, Close combat, Dragon pulse.

Current number of gym badges: 4
Current location: route 210.

What I've Done So Far:
Game started- May 28th Friday.
Player name- Diamond
Original Pokémon Chosen- Turtwig.
Caught A Starly- Nicknamed it NOOOOOO
Went to Pokémon center as soon as possible, and traded Turtwig for an egg.
Egg- Originally from my Pokémon game, it was the egg given to me by Riley, that I never bothered to hatch.
Ran around for ages- Egg finally hatched.
Female Riolu- Nicknamed Ylia.
Level 1- It was hard to train it up and took a lot of potions XD
Traveled to Oreburgh.
Beat Roark easily- Using hidden power and force palm.

June 1st Tuesday
Riolu tried to evolve- I stopped her due to the fact I wanted to learn the move Copy Cat (Which I didn't end up teaching her).
Got through the second gym badge. Over powered Ylia won easily. Was still a Riolu at the time.

June 6th Sunday
Riolu evolved into Lucario.
Won the third gym challenge. (Interesting fight, Lucario vs Lucario)

June 8th Tuesday
Beat the 4th gym. Wasn't difficult at all.

EDIT: nvmnd, I'm getting impatient so I'll try Infernape and change if it gets too hard.
EDIT2: I'm playing platinum btw, june 10, 2010, Blaaz the chimchar and I:
I got blaaz
raised it up to lv. 8
and saved on Route 202, after dawn shows you how to catch a pokemon.
(I know I didn't do a whole lot but I didn't have a whole lot of time to do anything in anyway

I've gotten the fourth badge. Valor the Exploud is now Level 52, and I'm in Hearthome heading to the gym! EDIT: Nevermind, I'm flying back to Pastoria. I forgot to follow the grunt around and battle my rival and such.

EDIT: Ok, right now I'm at Lake Verity battling Team Galactic. I've gotten my 5th badge - easy by using Crunch!, my 6th badge - Flamethrower, and my 7th badge - Flamethrower, again. Valor is currently at lv.70 and knows the moves Crunch, Ice Beam, Flamethrower, and Earthquake. I'll update once I get the next badge! I'll probably kill Dialga for the experience (and every other legendary; I have them all in my other Diamond cartridge!).

EDIT: I've beaten the 8th gym and I just started on Victory Road. Valor is level 85 (15 from 100!!) I'm off to bed now so in the morning I'll finish Victory Road and attack the elite four!

EDIT: Gahhh!! Why does no one else update?! Anyways, I've finished Victory Road and I finally got Valor to Lv.100 by grinding and grinding and grinding. I've bought all of my needed items and I deposited all of my HM slaves into the box. I'm going to try to do it without switching in an HM slave to heal and stuff. If that doesn't work I'll soft reset and try with the slaves. Wish me luck!

EDIT: Well, I've finished. The Elite Four really wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. Anyways, here is the long drawn out battle record for the Elite Four:


deku vs. Aaron
1 vs. 5
deku sent out Valor
Aaron sent out Dustox
Valor used Flamethrower
Dustox fainted
1 vs. 4
Aaron sent out Heracross
Valor used Flamethrower
Heracross fainted
1 vs. 3
Aaron sent out Vespiqueen
Valor used Ice Beam
Vespiqueen fainted
1 vs. 2
Aaron sent out Beautifly
Valor used Flamethrower
Beautifly fainted
1 vs. 1
Aaron sent out Drapion
Valor used Earthquake
Drapion fainted
1 vs. 0
Win!
Comments: Wasn’t too tough; Valor had moves that each of his Pokemon were weak too. I was very happy that Valor didn’t even get hit and every attack was an OHKO. I’m going to take on Bertha without saving.

deku vs. Bertha
1 vs. 5
deku sent out Valor
Bertha sent out Quagsire
Quagsire used Protect
Valor used Earthquake – no affect
Valor used Flamethrower (pressed the wrong button…)
Quagsire used Double Team
Valor used Earthquake
Quagsire Fainted
1 vs. 4
Bertha sent out Sudowoodo
Valor used Earthquake
Sudowoodo fainted
1 vs. 3
Bertha sent out Golem
Valor used Ice Beam
Golem fainted
1 vs. 2
Bertha sent out Whiscash
Valor used Earthquake
Whiscash used Zen Headbutt
Bertha used one Full Restore
Valor used Earthquake
Valor used Crunch
Whiscash fainted
1 vs. 1
Bertha sent out Hippowdon
A sandstorm started
Valor used Ice Beam
Hippowdon fainted
1 vs. 0
Win!
Comments: I can’t believe I accidently used Flamethrower on Quagsire, but I managed. I did expect to have troubles with Quagsire and Whiscash though. Overall it went a lot better than I predicted, with Valor only losing 22 HP points. I’m going to use a potion and head in to Flint’s room, again without saving.

deku vs. Flint
1 vs. 5
deku sent out Valor
Flint sent out Rapidash
Valor used Earthquake
Rapidash fainted
1 vs. 4
Flint sent out Infernape
Valor used Earthquake
Infernape fainted
1 vs. 3
Flint sent out Lopunny
Valor used Earthquake
Lopunny used Charm
Valor’s attack fell
Flint used one Full Restore
Valor used Crunch
Valor used Earthquake
Lopunny used Fire Punch
Valor got burnt
Valor was hurt from its burn
Valor used Crunch
Lopunny fainted
Valor was hurt from its burn
1 vs. 2
Flint sent out Steelix
Valor used Flamethrower
Steelix fainted
Valor was hurt from its burn
1 vs. 1
Flint sent out Drifblim
Valor used Ice Beam
Drifblim fainted
1 vs. 0
Win!
Comments: I did expect to have trouble with Lopunny, and it did just that. Other than that it was all OHKO’s and Valor mainly lost HP from its burn. In total, Valor lost 149 HP points, so I’m going to use a Full Restore to get rid of the burn and get to max HP. I’m also going to have to use an Ether on Earthquake. Once again, I’m not going to save before Lucian.

deku vs. Lucian
1 vs. 5
deku sent out Valor
Lucian sent out Mr. Mime
Valor used Crunch
Mr. Mime fainted
1 vs. 4
Lucian sent out Medicham
Valor used Earthquake
Medicham used Fire Punch
Lucian used one Full Restore
Valor used Earthquake
Valor used Crunch
Medicham fainted
1 vs. 3
Lucian sent out Alakazam
Valor used Crunch
Alakazam fainted
1 vs. 2
Lucian sent out Girafarig
Valor used Crunch
Girafarig fainted
1 vs. 1
Lucian sent out Bronzong
Valor used Flamethrower
Bronzong fainted
1 vs. 0
Win!
Comments: I expected to have trouble with Medicham, but luckily I didn’t have too much trouble. This battle seemed to be easiest aside from the battle with Aaron. Valor lost 39 HP, so I’m going to heal then use my Max Elixir to be fully healed – HP and PP wise – before Cynthia. I think I’ll save before I battle her.

deku vs. Cynthia
1 vs.6
deku sent out Valor
Cynthia sent out Spiritomb
Valor used Earthquake
Spiritomb used Dark Pulse
Valor used Earthquake
Spiritomb fainted
1 vs. 5
Cynthia sent out Lucario
Valor used Flamethrower
Lucario fainted
1 vs. 4
Cynthia sent out Garchomp
Valor used Ice Beam
Garchomp fainted
1 vs. 3
Cynthia sent out Gastrodon
Valor used Earthquake
Gastrodon used Sludge Bomb
Cynthia used one Full Restore
Valor used Earthquake
Valor used Crunch
Gastrodon fainted
1 vs. 2
Cynthia sent out Milotic
Valor used Earthquake
Milotic used Aqua Ring
Milotic restored health
Valor used Earthquake
Milotic fainted
1 vs. 1
Cynthia sent out Roserade
Valor used Flamethrower
Roserade fainted
1 vs. 0
Win!
Comments: Wow. This is the easiest I’ve ever beaten the whole Elite Four. Cynthia really didn’t cause much trouble. I expected that Spritomb, Gastrodon, and Milotic would cause trouble, which they did, but not as much as I expected. Time 31:30.


And here is Valor, the Exploud's, final stats.

Hey, sorry I forgot I was doing charmander on this challenge :(

But I'd like to try it again with another pokemon, I'm thinking Larvitar - Tyranitar, but that could be difficult to find.. also I haven't used one before. Either that or I go with Spheal - Walrein. Still not decided yet :)

I am interested in this challange... though I'll probably take part tomorrow as it's quite later over here. I'll play my Platinum copy and I'll be doing the solo run with Bibarel (which'll evolve from Bidoof obviously).

Edit: I forgot to add something. I was looking through the rules... and I was wondering, are we allowed to use HM Slaves when doing the Solo challange? Just asking because I've noticed it's not on the front page. :/

Yeah, just don't use them in battle. You can however in a double battle, or to switch in to revive/heal your runner. I had like four of them XD.

^Ah, I see.

No problem!

Anyways, I think I'm going to start again. I've figured out that the best moveset combo would be Ground, Fire, Ice/Grass, Dark/Ghost to defeat the Sinnoh League. This time I'll use Trapinch -> Vibrava -> Flygon, on Diamond again.

EDIT: Okay, I've started and my Trapinch just hatched. It was female and I named her Lo. Right now I'm just training her on the first route.

EDIT: Todays been a good day in the challenge world. Lo is now a level 53 Flygon that knows Crunch, Giga Drain, Earthquake, and Flamethrower and I have earned the first four gym badges. I saved in Pastoria and I'm about to go battle my rival and chase the grunt.

Um, hi? I'd really love to know if this challenge is still going on 'cause I'd like to give this a try. If it is, great 'cause I'd love to do a solo run with Psyduck/Golduck on my Diamond game, if at all possible. I'm currently working on my Steel Monotype challenge in Pearl but I'm pretty sure I can do two challenges at once. So yeah, I'd love to do this challenge and let me know if I still can. Thanks! =]

Alright, here's my first update on my Golduck solo run!

User Name: MareBear
Trainer: Mary
Game: Diamond
Pokemon: Psyduck/Golduck
Time on Game: 11:19

Badges: Coal, Forest, Cobble, Fen, Relic, Mine
Team Members: My solo runner and my HM Slave and Flyer.

Current Team:
Daisy
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/e2/Spr_4d_055.png
Level 55
Hardy
Wise Glasses
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Psychic
- Brick Break

So, I started this solo run with the Psyduck/Golduck combination and so far, it's been really fun. All of the Gyms have been easy, except Gardenia and her damned Grass types. Anyway, I just beat my rival in Pastoria City and I'm about to chase the Galactic Grunt down. I will update more later 'cause I'm on my iPod with little WiFi but I will update when I can. XD

EDIT: Got the next two badges from Fantina and Byron, who were both pretty easy. I just finished beating up Saturn and Mars at Lakes Valor and Verity and I'm now going to head to Snowpoint City next for my seventh badge and to help out my rival Ryan at Lake Acuity. At the rate I'm going, I probably should have this challenge finished by tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest. Don't hold me on that 'cause I'm still on vacation and something come up. Until then people! =]
