Oh Crap....

This has been so annoying my ledyba (lv38) Cannot beat the 5th gym ****ing Dynamicpunch HAS ****ing been a critical hit every single time

Ledyba is a good pokemon to use because lance's pokemon are Dragonite, Charazard And Aereodektyl And the attacks of them to use against you are Blizzard, Thunder, Flamethrower and Rock Slide. They don't it very ard because of ledyba's Incredable Sp.Def

Game: Emerald (will be using an emulator)

Can I run through with Latias? I know she's technically a legendary but I won't be using soul dew, and she's the first one that came to mind. My other choices are Bagon and torchic

@Suicune,

You can choose any game or games you want to play. an Ultimate is when you go through all 4 (or 5) generations with the same pokemon.

Typhlosion Update #1:
Started off by picking up my Cyndaquil and training it before battling Falkner. It eveolved while fighting in Sprout Tower.
Falkner:

We continued along until we reached Bugsy and his gym
Bugsy:
http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/3853/typhlosionbugsy.png
Next up was Whitney. I was worried about her Miltank and its Rollout, but Quilava proved to be a fierce competitor and managed to take it down.
Whitney:

Morty proved to be very easy to beat as well, Quilava was not hit once in the entire gym.
Morty:
http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/7770/typhlosionmorty.png
It evolved into a Typhlosion right after the battle with Morty and with Typhlosion's new found power Chuck and Jasmine went down easily.
Chuck:

I'm sorry but I don't have the energy to keep this pikachu ultimate solorun going.. it's just too frustrating :( so I think I'll just drop out.. can you just list me as a champion for the R/B/Y Solorun with Pikachu? :P Thanks.

Primeape's final moveset was:
Karate Chop, Thrash, Cross Chop, Thunderpunch.

Emerald is up next, but i'm not starting it yet.
I actually already did an Emerald Primeape solo run but didn't enter it in the challenge so I don't feel like it counts. I'm just going to do it over again.

Lateon
October 3rd, 2010, 01:37 PM
Before starting, I used Advance Map to edit route 102 and replace Wurmple with Latias. I also edited one of the flowers in Littleroot to hold a masterball so I could actually catch her.


Update 1: Littleroot-route 104-Petalburg city

My day started off great. My mother stuffed me in the back of a moving truck and forced me to ride in it to our new town of Littleroot. What the hell, mother. I'm sorry that your precious stuffed animals can't ride in the moving truck, but I'm your daughter. Can't you clear out the front seat and let me in the car?

So when the truck finally stopped and the stuffy air was let out, my mother ambushed me with some mumbo jumbo about how great the new town was, dragging me into the house and making me go set my clock. She then ran back upstairs and told me that it was so nice of the pokemon movers to set up our new house! Hardly. They somehow mixed up my bedsheets with my mothers and now I have purple and white instead of green.

I grabbed a potion out of my computer and went back downstairs, to be ambushed by my mother once again to run to the TV. Sorry, mom, we missed the news report for dad. Then she told me to go say hi to the nieghbors. I hate saying hi, but anything to get away from you, crazy lady.

I went back outside and tried to run out of town, but was stopped by someone who said I needed a pokemon. Great. Looks like I need to go say hi afterall.

I went next door and met my neighbor Brendan. He seemed pretty cool. I hope he doesn't start hitting on me. Anyway, he basically said hi and then bailed, leaving me to try to leave town again. This time, the guy that stopped me told me that I should go save the person who was screaming like a banshee up ahead. Sure, NOW you're singing a different tune.

To make a really long story short, the guy told me to grab a pokeball, I did, I threw it, A little orange fluffball named Torchic came out. I knocked out the Zigazoon. The professor thanked me, gave me the pokemon, and told me to go find Brendan. Seems like he's too scared to go out alone anymore. I named the Torchic he gave me Slave. I went north through Oldale town and found Brendan on route 103, scribbling on a clipboard. I said hi, he challenged me to a battle. Slave beat his Mudkip, but I can tell that little tadpole will grow to be a problem for my Slave. We went back to his dad's lab and he gave us pokeballs, requesting that we go fill a pokedex. (I'm telling you, he's terrified of going outside).

Freedom! I bolted for route 102 but was stopped by my mother. Oh, god not again. Good fortune seemes to be on my side, because she just gave me a new pair of shoes and wished me luck on my journey. Yeah, that's what you get for stuffing me in a moving truck, mother dear. On my way out, I saw something reflect in the grass and went over. I picked up the item, which looked like a pokeball with an M on it- score, Masterball! I put it in my bag.

When I went out on Route 102, the first pokemon I encountered was a red flying pokemon. It was named Latias. I immediatley threw the Master ball I had found at it, securing my partner. Luckily, I had found a partner I liked on my second try. Unluckily, it only know Psywave. A little miffed at the crappy movepool, I went west and battled a couple trainers, and upon leveling up Pheobe learned Wish. Okay, not offensive, but now she could heal herself. I could handle that. I went back to Oldale town and went north to train, but found nothing but Poocheyna, which she couldn't do anything to. I caught one of them and named it P. On my way to leave I found a Wingull. It looked like it would be useful so I caught it and named it UPS, since it looked like it could deliver things

After battling all the trainers on route 104, I snuck through petalburg city to the pokecenter, where I healed Pheobe and the others and went into the grass to train. I caught a Zigazoon, who looked like he liked to steal things. I named him thief. He can steal whatever he wants, as long as it isn't from me and I get to get whatever he does steal. Shortly after I found a Ralts. It looked cool, so I named him flash. Then I realized he only knew growl, and he wasn't so cool anymore.

When we finished training, I contemplated going to the gym and seeing my father. It was late, however, and I wasn't really interested in seeing him too soon. It was his fault I got stuffed into a moving truck. We went to Oldale town and picked up a room in the pokecenter for the night.


tl;dr
-received Torchic, named Slave
-Battled Brendan, won, recieved pokdex and pokeballs
-Caught Latias, named Pheobe
-Caught Poochyena, named P
-Caught Wingull, named UPS
-Had a bunch of trainers challenge me. Was easier once Pheobe learned wish.
-Arrived in petalburg. managed to get to pokecenter and back to route 104 without dad seeing me.
-Grinded Pheobe to level 9, During which I caught Zigazoon(Thief) and Ralts (Flash).

Doing my solo Staryu challenge. In a sort of LP way at the same time.
First of all, named myself Awesome and my rival Loser!
Then, a guy randomly walks up to me, brings me to his "lab" and offers me balls.
http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/3043/solo1.png
Oh jolly good. What a fun time.

http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/4237/solo2.png
Took me a Bulbasaur. Named him Dump.

http://img810.imageshack.us/img810/9669/solo3.png
Ah, more fun times with my best buddy Loser!
Ever notice that Prof. Oak bails you out when you lose to Gary, but he doesn't bail his own grandson when you beat him. Harsh.

http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/3176/solo4.png
Got a parcel that conveniently wrapped up so I can't see it. 20 bucks says it's porn.

http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/3571/solo6.png
Guess I left a DUMP. Yeah, that joke was really CORNY. Shutting up now.

Finally, my Water Pokemon learns a WATER attack.

Hmm... a guy who's oddly facing away from normal people towards a tree. Totally averag-Another 20 bucks says he's waxing the old candle stick. If you understand my terms.

-had to find the key inside te Pokemon Mansion first and it didnt take to long to obtain it
-rushed straight to the gym after a quick heal and defeated Blaine for my VolcanoBadge and Tm Fire Blast.

-obtained HM Rock Smash and tought it to Lapras
-defeated Moltres atop Mt. Ember and set sail to Island two
-one Two Island i have been requested with yet another side quest so off to Three Island
-on Three Island i defeat the Bikers causing trouble on the island and rescue Lostelle and we safely fade out back to Two Island and i hand over the meteroite and got a Moon Stone for Lostelles dad..wtf for all that hard work -___-'
-anyway i talk to Bill and Celio and i head back to Cinnabar Island

If we want to join, do we post the pokemon's final evolution, or the one we catch in the beginning of the game?

At any rate, I want to do a challenge with Sentret (Furret). I'll be catching one in Gold as soon as I get pokeballs.

*Edit: I have a question. If your pokemon that you're completing the challenge with dies, can you send out an HM slave and use a Revive?

I started today with this challenge :). Here's what I've done so far:


- Got a Totodile (future SURF, WHIRLPOOL, and CUT slave) from Prof. Elm
- Got the MYSTERY EGG, Totodile hit level 7
- Beat my rival Gary’s Chikorita
- Delivered the MYSTERY EGG to Prof. Elm
- Caught a level 2 Pidgey (future FLY slave)
- Caught a level 3 male Sentret…Officially began solo challenge.
- Arrived in Violet City, defeated the Sprout Tower, got the HM FLASH
- Challenged Falkner with a level 13 Sentret with the moveset: Tackle, Defense Curl, Quick Attack. Had a Berry attached to Sentret.
- Defeated Falkner, got the ZEPHYRBADGE
- Taught Sentret Mud-Slap
- Sentret hit level 15 and evolved into Furret on Route 32
- Got TM39 SWIFT in Rock Cave. Replaced Furret’s Tackle with Swift.
- Caught a level 6 Geodude (future STRENGTH and ROCK SMASH slave)
- Defeated TEAM ROCKET in the Slowpoke Well.
- Challenged Bugsy with a level 20 Furret with the moveset: Swift, Defense Curl, Quick Attack, Mud-Slap.
- Defeated Bugsy, got the HIVEBADGE
- Defeated Gary, Furret hit level 21


I'm probably going to catch a Hoothoot at some point, too...I'd rather have that than a Pidgey as my HM slave since it can learn Flash, too.

Well, I joined really late (today, in fact) so I didn't have time to post it, but I just finished a solo run with Kingdra on HG, who ended up at lvl 90. I use an emulator so I was able to "trade" a Horsea egg from a previous SS game, of which I had to breed several before I could get a decent nature (ended up with Rash, which ups SpA and lowers SpD), using Pokesav. No egg moves, though.

Because I finished already, this post will be fairly concise and pretty short, and I don't remember a lot of the levels for gym battles either. If in the future I decide to do another one while waiting for B/W to come out I will try to go slower and in more detail as well.

I did not use a single revive on Horsea/Seadra/Kingra either. If he fainted I reset it, and this only happened in a few early battles, once with the Kimono Girls (damn Jolteon), once with Blue, and a couple times with Red (Lapras' Blizzard/Hail FTL). I also only used healing items in-battle with Red, no one else (again, Blizzard/Hail FTL).

Here's my journey.


So I chose Totodile as my starter for HM slave reasons, and was at Cherrytown by the time I was able to "trade" a Pidgey I caught for the egg. I quickly hatched it, and we were on our way. Let me tell you, it was hell grinding to a high enough level in order to beat sprout tower. I think I got to level 12 or 13 before I started Sprout tower with just Bubble, picking up water gun on the way. This was the only real difficult part that I had with Horsea as my soloer.

Just before Violet City, I picked up a Geodude and another Pigdey for HM slaves.

I did lose to my rival the second time we faced because his Bayleef killed me. The second time around I used enough smokescreens to get him to miss with razor leaf.

In Ilex Forest I was able to teach Horsea Headbutt, which made it a lot easier to handle the water types. I ended up carrying Headbutt for a real long time until I taught it Waterfall just before fighting the Elite 4.

I also had some trouble with Bugsy and his Scyther using U-Turn as well, but I was able to defeat him the second time.

The middle part of the game up to Clair was pretty uneventful, I kicked ass up and down the region. The dragon gym was memorable though because I reached lvl 57 with Seadra right before the battle with Clair, which is when she learns Dragon Pulse. With the new move, I quickly defeated Clair, did the whole Dragon's Den thing, and then beat the Kimono Girls, killed Ho-oh, and set off for the Elite Four with a newly evolved Kingdra using the Dragon Scale I found in Mt. Mortar.

At the Elite 4, I kicked everybody's butt, My Kindra was at level 62ish when I started, and ended up at level 66 in the HOF. I was in the yellow once, and that was to Gyrados' Dragon Pulse at the beginning of the battle with Lance. Then I killed all the other with Dragon Pulse for the dragons and Surf for Aero and Charizard. For some reason even though I had taught Ice Beam to Kindra I didn't use it...hmmm.

Then it was off to the rest of Kanto, which was laughably easy with my lvl 70ish Kingdra. The moves I had were Waterfall, Surf, Ice Beam, and Dragon Pulse, which never changed from the first Elite 4 battle to the end. This moveset is only walled by Empoleon, who isn't in this game. It was OHKO after another until I faced the greatest Gym Leader, Blue. A this point I was around level 85 I think. The first time I faced him, he was able to kill me with his Machamp who had DynamicPunch and No Guard, so it never misses, and the confusion killed me. I tried to fight it out but failed. The second time I was able to fight it out, and so I got the Earth Badge.

Next step was to fight the Elite 4 again. I did have to heal after almost every battle except for the one against Karen, strangely enough. I used an Elixer for the first time, and then destroyed Lance with Ice Beam, and a Surf for CHarizard and a couple Dragon Pulses for Gyarados. 2nd HOF at lvl 87.

After that, I finished the Suicine sidequest, raising my level to lvl 89 in the process. I killed Suicine, btw. I also killed one Snorlax and caught the second with a Heavy Ball just for the heck of it.

Then I went to Mt. Silver. Unlike the Elite 4, I brought my HM slaves with me (I had just Kingdra with me in the Elite 4), and went up and up until I found Red!

Now I had fought him in the Gold and Silver versions, but never had in the HG/SS versions before. His team is the greatest of all time across all games for an in-game opponent.

It took a few tries and in the end I had to use 4 Full Restores and a Hyper Potion for the first time in a battle, but I eventually killed that pesky Lapras and the rest went down relatively tamely. Ended up at lvl 90.


Geez, I can't post pictures till I get 15 posts, oh well.
I may come back and edit this post then...

Pictures are now up! The first two show the HOF entries from the first and second E4 battles, the third shows the Legendary Badge you get for defeating Red, as well as Kingdra's final level.

Yeah with school and everything else I have really had the time to update my log, but regardless I finally beat Emerald. Can't say that it was too hard.


Agent’s Name: Kendrix

Status: Active, but Unrecruited

Logs:

What I’ve complied about this trainer is classified above Top Secret and will be treaded as such.

At Norman’s request we started to look into his son, Kendrix, history in order to evaluate whether or not he has the required skill to be recruited into our organization. What we found was rather amazing, not only did he fight and win against 16 gym leaders with just his Misdreavus (called Almia), he also beat the Elite Four and Champion in both Kanto and Johto. Also it turns out that he was responsible for disbanding Team Rocket twice and as such has gained celebrity status in both regions he has been in.

It turns out that Steven (one of our best agents) met him previously, in Kanto, has been leaking information to him about Team Magma and Aqua. We have been assured that the higher ups ordered this, and this incident is being used to test his character. While I was skeptical of this kid at first, after researching his history I am sure that he would make the progress in the Isshu Region go that much more smoothly.

Update:
We have now confirmed that Kendrix has already beaten 7 gym leaders. I personally called each one of them and using the information they have provided I can now get a clear idea of his battling style and his partner’s, Almia, move set (see attached document for last known moves). Also Steven battled along side him earlier this week, against the Team Magma Boss and had only positive things to say about his battling style. At this rate we will have to alter the structure of the Elite Four Members to ensure that the battle goes on long enough to get some useful information.

Update 2:
Truthfully I thought this was my last update as some how Team Aqua and Magma somehow managed to revive the ancient best that formed this region years ago, Groudon and Kyorgre. Unfortunately this had the adverse effect of the weather everywhere to go out of whack (very hot in some places and constant thunder storms somewhere else). We spent majority of the day scanning for information about these beast and it was only by a stroke of luck that I managed to find some information on where Rayquaza sleeps (the third legendary pokemon, who was said to have calm both Groudon and Kyorgre years ago). Intend of sending agents with the information to awaken the sky pokemon, the higher ups decided to send this Kendrix kid instead.

It turns out it was the right gamble as he was able to awaken Rayqauza and pretty much save the entire region. I will definitely be watching this kid in the future.

Update 3:
Kendrix is definitely the type of agent that we need on this team. Not only did he get his last gym badge with relative ease but he also beat the entire Elite Four and the Champion (even after we changed some members around in order to make life difficult for him). Good thing we had cameras ready to capture his battling style as it is really something to behold. Even Steven, fell in battle against this guy, but then again he wasn’t using his best team.

Here is a summery of his battles:

Sidney : He ended up relying on Thunder Bolt as most of his Misdreavus moves could not hurt Dark Types.

Phoebe : He just ended up ordering Almia to use Shadow Ball every time Phoebe sent out a Ghost Type. Her only non pure ghost type fell to a Thunder Bolt.

Glacia: Her three Water/ Ice type pokemon fell to a super effective Thunder Bolt. Her first Glalie managed to lower his Pokémon’s speed but fell to a critical hit Psychic. Her second Glalie went first but squandered its chance by just setting up Hail. His Misdreavus Koed it easily with Psychic.

Drake: His Shelgon and Flygon fell to Psychic, but managed to hurt Kendrix’s Misdreavus with crunch. His powerful Salamence and Altaria was 2hkoed by Thunderbolt, but also managed to hit Almia leaving her in dire shape. Kendrix then healed her and Koed Drake’s last pokemon with a Shadow Ball Thunder Bolt Combo.

He then faced off against Wallace but easily managed to win, by using a combination of strategy and speed rarely seen in trainers nowadays. With that victory Kendrix added Champion of this region to his ever-expanding list of achievements.

I heard that Steven battled him after that, as a sort of entry exam to our organization, but he would tell us anything about the battle, other than that Kendrix was the real deal.


We have heard that he plans to move to the Sinnoh region, in order to escape the fame that he currently has for beating the Elite four and saving the Hoenn region. We will be watching, and if he proves his worth in that region, we will recruit him for our cause.


Last Known Location: Little Root Town – but we know that he will move to Twin Leaf Town, in the Sinnoh Region, in the coming weeks.

Okay, so after that Kingdra run, which was my first ever solo run, I got a taste for more. I think I'm gonna try for a Ultimate Solo Challenge. I am not quite sure what that is though...do you just beat each generation with the same pokemon? It would be nice if the first post clarified this so newbies like me understand.

Anyway, since I guess I'm supposed to start with BRY or EG/FR, I'm gonna do FR with Growlithe/Arcanine. Unfortunately, I'll have to use a modifier...

Stay tuned for updates!

An Ultimate Solo is where you do all regions with the same pokemon. Like, you beat all of them with a Growlithe/Arcanine

An Ultimate Solo is where you do all regions with the same pokemon. Like, you beat all of them with a Growlithe/Arcanine

ok, thanks, that is what I thought it was...

Now, on to the update.

So right now I am in Vermilion City, just about to get on the S.S. Anne.

My journey so far:


So this will be the first time that I will have played a Gen III remake all the way through. I'm doing FireRed with my Growlithe, who will be an Arcanine, named Fireheart.

My name is Cyrus, btw. I like to choose realistic names for my adventures.

So I chose squirtle as my starter for the HM surf and also so the rival has an opposite typing as my soloer. Batlled with squirtle through Viridian Forest while avoiding as many trainers as I could, and beat Brock with Bubble. After that I used a modifier and caught a shiny female Growlithe at lvl 4 on rt 2, than went back through the forest and battled all the trainers I left behind.

I then went through Mt, Moon, with was pretty easy because Fireheart's Bite is overpowering at this stage of the game, as well as Ember. I did use an Escape Rope once so as to restore her PP before taking on Team Rocket and getting the Helix Fossil. In Mt. Moon, I caught a Geodude and a Paras as HM slaves.

Fireheart was at lvl 20 at this point, and when I arrived at Cerulean City I healed up and then went to fight my rival, who is named Zane.

Fireheart took out his team with relative ease, and I have to say that pidgey is awesome in the original games, especially once he gets evolved all the way. Just saying.

Nugget Road was up next, which was no trouble at all for Fireheart, and once I reached Bill's House, she was at lvl 25, which I though was high enough for Misty. Boy was I wrong.

The two trainers inside the gym were easy enough, but Misty was a real problem for Fireheart. Staryu was OHKOed by a Take Down, but Fireheart had to suffer numerous defeats before finally pulling out a clutch critical hit Bite on Starmie to win the Cascadebadge. Good job, girl. Way to hang in there.

I then headed over to the house that was robbed, defeated the Rocket Grunt easily, and headed down to Vermilion City. While I was there, I traded a Spearow I had caught on Rt 4 for Farfech'd, who took the place of Paras in my party. Paras was released into the wild. Bye Bye, Paras!

I also got the Bike Voucher from the obsessed Fan Club president and went back and rode my brand new bicycle down to Vermilion City, where I decided to wait till tomorrow to tackle the S.S Anne and the next badge.

Team Cyrus:

Fireheart (Growlithe) L27:
Bite
Roar
Ember
Take Down

Geodude L10:
Tackle
Defense Curl
Mud Sport

Squirtle L14:
Tackle
Bubble
Water Gun
Withdraw

Ch'Ding (Farfech'd) L8:
Peck
Sand-Attack

Stay tuned for more tommorow.

Oh, the joys of NO$GBA and double speed. That combined with no life lets me get halfway through the game in a day. Plus there is very little grinding going on.

A pretty big update. Kinda wish someone else had posted before this, though.


So when last we met I was about to do the rest of Vermilion City.

I cruised through the S.S. Anne with my over-leveled Fireheart, and beat Zane handily with my Ember-Bite combo. Got HM01, Cut, from the captain and taught to Ch'Ding. Hacked down the bush and proceeded to Lt. Surge, who was no match for Fireheart. She did get paralyzed, but that was about it.

Next up was Rock Tunnel, but before I did that I caught a Drowee on Rt. 11 for Flash. Got HM05, Flash, from Professor Oak's Aide on Rt. 2 after going through Diglett's Cave, went back to Cerulean City via the Underground Path, and proceeded to Rock Tunnel. Rock Tunnel has always been my biggest annoyance in the original games, because of Flash and the fact that it is so easy to get lost. But I made my way through it at last and arrived at Lavender Town. I went into the Pokemon Tower, where I was surprised by my rival, Zane. His new Gyrados almost killed Fireheart but Bite was enough to put him away, and the rest of the battle was a breeze. I then realized that I need a Sliph Scope, so I went back outside.

A hop and a skip later, avoiding the trainers that I could for fear that my Growlithe would reach L49 before I could buy a Fire Stone, I found the second Underground Path and arrived in Celadon with 8 levels to spare. I quickly bought a Fire Stone from the Dept. Store, along with as many Calciums I could buy, and used the Calciums on Fireheart, who was very happy to boost her Special Attack! I also bought a Carbos, but unfortunately, it was ineffective. All those Pidgeys, Digletts, and various others had given me all the Speed EVs she could handle past 100, which is kind of a bummer, although not bad at all. Speed is a good stat to train in for Fireheart.

I stopped by the Mansion for Eevee and some Tea, then it was on the gym and my fourth badge. The Celadon Gym was a joke. Fireheart crushed everyone with Ember and the occasional Flame Wheel, her newest move, barely suffering any damage along the way. Erica followed the same pattern, gaining me the Rainbow Badge.

I then stopped by the house above the entrance to Cycling Road for the awesome HM02, Fly, which I taught to Ch'Ding.

The Rocket Hideout was next, but not before getting a Coin Case from a depressed gambler in the restaurant and picking up all the free coins I could find in the Game Corner.

I quickly cleared out the Hideout, Giovanni's 3 measly Pokemon falling quickly to 2 Bites and a Flame Wheel for his Kangaskhan, picking up the Silph Scope as my prize.

Bite is a Special move in this game, as are all Dark moves, which is so much hax especially for Growlithe. Those Rock Pokemon don't stand a chance.

I then went back to the corner and bought enough coins to buy a Charcoal from the prize booth (1,000 coins) to give to Fireheart, who was tickled to boost her Fire-type attacks!

After giving an apparently legendary cup of Tea to the guards, I went back to Lavender Town, fighting all the trainers I had skipped previously. I then went into Pokemon Tower, which was extremely difficult to navigate because of the mist. I couldn't see my hand in front of my face, but luckily the trainers and item balls were extremely visible on the overhead map I just happed to have. For some reason, every time I was sucked into a battle, the smoke cleared for an instant as well. After bumbling through the Tower and rescuing poor Mr. Fuji, I got the Poke Flute, an indispensable item for later, it seems.

Then it was on to Saffron City, my favorite city in Kanto, home to Sabrina, also my favorite gym leader in Kanto. Psychics are awesome. But first I had to beat the Dojo, home to fighting Pokemon. I ran into a spot of trouble because I forgot to heal Fireheart before the third battle, but survived and then demolished the Karate King with Flame Wheel. I then chose Hitmonlee for my Pokemon.

I am now prepared to take on the Sliph Co. office building and defeat Team Rocket.

Okay.. I'll do this using Pokémon Yellow..

Pokémon: Venonat/Venomoth

Man, these solo runs can get really boring at times, especially when every thing is OHKO as they are 20-30 levels below you.

Update:


So I started clearing out Sliph Co, and let me tell you, it got old really quickly. Who raises their Rattatas and Koffings higher than their evolutionary level? Team Rocket, that's who. Not a very bright bunch. It is hard to believe that they even achieved have of what they did in this game...although to be fair, Giovanni is an evil bastard who cares little for his henchmen.

A few battles in, Fireheart reached L49 and learned her final move, Flamethrower. This meant it was time to whip out my Fire Stone and evolve her! The change was over pretty quickly, but what a change it was. My small, cute Growlithe had evolved into the awesome Legendary Pokemon, Arcanine, who now towered over me. She then wanted to learn ExtremeSpeed, which I was only too happy to teach her, forgetting Take Down, as it was less accurate and had that pesky recoil damage, even if it was more powerful.

Now it's time for Fireheart, the Legendary Arcanine, to be UNLEASHED on the poor souls of Team Rocket! They never stood a chance.

It took a few minutes to find my way around, as I hadn't played this game in a while, but having played Blue over and over when I was a kid on my Pocket Gameboy, I quickly go the hang of it, and proceeded to beat every Rocket I could in the building. No sense in not being thorough, right?

Finally I found the necessary warp tile on the 3rd floor, and was quickly accosted by Zane, who was more powerful than ever, although his team was no match against my UNLEASHED Fireheart.

After I beat Zane pretty much untouched, the guy next to him was so happy to see me that he gave ma a Lapras! Awesome!

I made my way into Giovanni's office and handed his ass to him on a platter, extra crispy from Fireheart's Flamethrower. The president gave me a Master Ball, which I will use on no one, I guess. Maybe Zapdos. I'm not really planning on doing the Cerulean Cave or anything, but I might. If I do, it'll be used to catch Mewtwo. The color matches, too! XD.

Now that Sliph Co. was cleared and the town set free of Team Rocket, I headed over to the Saffron Gym. Remember that move called Bite? It's Dark-type.

After I CRUSHED the gym, OHKOing every since pokemon I faced, including Sabrina's, It was time to go to Fuchsia City. Marsh Badge obtained!

I love the concept of Cyling Road. I hate the trainers that are there. There aren't too many, but they are REALLY weak. Too weak. At least they are stronger, if not by much, than those on the other side of the region on the coast.

Upon reaching Fuchsia City, I wandered over to the Safari Zone and entered the Zone to find HM03, Surf. Like Sliph Co., it took me a few tries to get my bearings. The first run was more about getting items, though. The second one I was actually only like 20 steps away from getting it when the game ended. On the third try, I finally got it with plenty of time to spare, about 220/500.

After getting the HM, I taught Surf to Squirtle and then headed back to the Warden's house to give him back his Gold Teeth (LOL). For my efforts, I was given the last HM before fighting the Elite four, HM04, Strength. Geodude was the guy for that one. The gym was next.

I love Koga. He is a NINJA, for one, but he was also promoted to the Elite Four, an awesome achievement. Unfortunately, he was crushed by Fireheart and her Flame Wheel. Soul Badge FTW!

I decided to take the long way to Cinnabar Island, which meant going through Seafoam Islands, which I had never done before on Blue. I had always gone from Pallet Town.

The road was long and hard, with the boulder puzzle being a refreshing change of pace, and meeting up with Articuno. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to stock up on Ultra Balls, and so was forced to kill it. I had 2 Ultra Balls, had it Paralyzed, and almost caught it with the second ball, it moving three times before releasing it.

I eventually made it to Cinnabar Island with 0 PP left for any of my moves, but without using Struggle once! XD.

I did fight a couple trainers on the Pallet Town route just for kicks using Struggle, though. It was hilarious OHKOing Pokemon with Struggle.

Well, I quickly healed up and then ventured into the Pokemon Mansion in order to find the Secret Key to the gym.

After doing so, along with a whole slew of other useless but expensive items, like EV boosters and TMs that Fireheart can't learn, I went to the gym and beat all the trainers with Flame Wheel and Bite. Blaine was also easy. Bite and ExtremeSpeed were awesome, and it was nice to see Fireheart react to facing her own species of Arcanine for the first time. Strangely enough, Blaine has no Magmar, even though Magmar is very prominent in the anime..

Anyway, after exiting the gym I was surprised by Bill, who wanted me to go vist One Island with him! I was nonplussed, never having played this part before, and went with him excitedly. The Sevii Islands are only found in FireRed and LeafGreen, by the way, and so far I was only able to visit three of them. Can't wait to see what the other four are like.

Upon reaching One Island, I was given a meteorite(!) by Bill to give to his friend on Two Island, but when I got there, his daughter was missing! Oh Noes! I went to Three Island to find her and found the island taken over by a bike gang! Well, I couldn't have that, so I beat down the gang and forced them to leave with Fireheart's Flamethrower tickling their back tires.

I then found my way into Berry Forest, where I found Bill's friend's missing daughter (lol), who was being terrorized by a Hypo, who I ended up catching with an Ultra Ball (stocked up now!).

After magically teleporting back to Two Island, I gave Bill's friend the meteorite and received a Moon Stone for my trouble, another even useless item since I can't sell it. I took the boat, which had also been magically teleported back, back to One Island, and Bill and I left for Cinnabar, our visit over. I look forward to seeing the Sevii Islands again.

Now it was time to continue the main game, which meant Flying back to Viridian City to take on the leader there, who is unknown, though apparently likes the Ground-type according to the Glasses Guy.

After easily beating my way through the gym and its horribly familiar spinning tiles, I found myself facing of against...Giovanni!?!

That's right, the leader of Team Rocket is apparently a Gym Leader! How he was able to become one is a mystery to me, although he is the strongest trainer in Kanto.

However, Fireheart had no qualms about beating Giovanni, and even seemed to relish doing so. One quick note. Why in hell is Giovanni's strongest(!) Pokemon, while at a respectable L50, a RYHORN!?! At least evolve it, you dummy! Bite, Flamethrower, and ExtremeSpeed made quick work of Giovanni.

As a bonus for beating Giovanni and getting the Earth Badge, as well as the TM26 Earthquake, he disbanded Team Rocket once and for all! Yay! Even though it makes no sense for him to do so...

So now that I have collected 8 Badges, I get to challenge the Elite Four! Fireheart, the endgame is coming! I heading over to Route 22, the path to victory Road, when out of nowhere comes Zane! He wants a warm up before the Pokemon League. Hah! I'll give him a warm up with Fireheart's Flamethrower! (XD)

Needless to say, I whupped his butt with Fireheart, now at L69 and counting.

After going through the endless amount of Badge checkpoints, I finally arrived at Victory Road! I have to say that the original Victory Road is the best one by far, especially since it houses Moltres a legendary Pokemon (or at least the RBY games did. Moltres is in a different location in the remakes.)

Time to rest and recover from an intense update!

Done with the Kanto Region!!!

I have to say that it took a lot longer than I expected to do the Sevii Islands, as I needed to train up to faced the post-National Dex Elite Four, which I don't know If I will do again, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. Will prolly do it for the Johto region, if only to train Fireheart for Red. Pictures of HOF entries are in the spoiler tags


Ok, so I started with Victory Road, which was pretty easy. It was touch and go there for a moment in terms of having enough PP left, but I made it through and healed up. The Elite Four was up! I started with only Fireheart in my party at L72 I think.

Lorelei took a couple tries to get the exact move combinations right, because of all those water-ice Pokemon using Surf (I hate Lapras) and those Full Restores healing them when her Pokemon were in the red. Bruno was easy enough, Bite for his Onixes and Flamethrower and Flame Wheel for everything else. Had to use a Full Restore once on account of Earthquakes, but was able to make it through. Agatha went down to bite and Flamethrower spam, pretty easy. Next up was Lance, whose dragon Pokemon had a big advantage over me, especially his Aerodactyl. In preparation for this, I taught Return to Fireheart, getting rid of the unneeded Flame Wheel, which was good for a while because of its high PP, but was not powerful enough at this point, as I had Flamethrower now. Return has a base power of 102 with a max Happiness rating, which my Arcanine no doubt had.

So I went into battle with Lance. Man it was brutal. Gyarados kept using Thunder Wave, which Paralyzed me until I used a Full Restore, and Aerodactyl kept killing me with AncientPower until I finally stopped sending it into the red and killed it without allowing Lance to use a Full Restore. The rest of the team was easy enough. Outrage didn't really damage me that much, and Bite and Return were enough to kill the rest of the team (Dragonair just sucks).

Once I finally got that over with, I was up against Zane, who had somehow beat me to the Elite Four despite being defeated by me every time we faced each other. This time was no different. Flamethrower took down Pidgeot, Bite took care of Rydon, Bite/Return took down Gyarados, Arcanine, which kept using ExtremeSpeed (LOL) went down to a couple Returns, and lastly Alakazam went down to a single Bite. I was now the Champion!!! Fireheart was inducted into the Hall of Fame at L76!

After the celebration involving confetti, I was magically teleported back home, and set off to catch 60 Pokemon to unlock the National Dex. It took a while, especially that Zapdos, who i just HAD to catch, but some choice locations and the use of a few evolutionary stones later, I had obtained data on 60 Pokemon and was ready to take on the Sevii Islands.

Now as I mentioned before, this was the first time I have done the Sevii Islands, and I didn't really know what to expect. I was delighted to see new pokemon in the grass, and a slew of good trainers to up Fireheart's level. I also redefeated Team Rocket as well, with stronger Pokemon than ever, and with ones reminiscent of G/S/C as well, which was pretty interesting. After I got the Sapphire Gem and defeated all the trainers I could, it was time to battle the new and improved Elite Four, who were several levels higher and had Gen II Pokemon on their team. Fireheart started the final test at L86.

First up was Lorelei, who was slightly easier this time with her Piloswine replacing Slowbro, and I breezed through her. Bruno was even easier, his Steelixes no match for Flamethrower. Earthquake was annoying, but I used a Full Restore and his Machamp went down. Agatha had made one change, with her Haunter becoming a Misdreavus, to no effect. Her final Pokemon went down to Bite, and the dreaded Lance was up next. This time was a bit faster in terms of less restarting, but I had to use more items because Earthquake was known by so many of his Pokemon (Gyarados, Dragonite(!) and Aerodactyl) but I was able to push through Aerodactyl with Flamethrower to finish him off. Kingdra came out of nowhere, and I thought I was screwed but I got EXTREMELY lucky and flinched him with Bite twice in a row and the third one killed him, all without putting him in the red. Lastly came his L72 Dragonite, but Outrage again didn't do much and I finshed him off with Flamethrower. I finally beat Lance, and gave a sigh of relief, sure that the worst was over. Boy was I wrong.

After using a Max Elixer on Fireheart (I was out of Bites and ExtremeSpeeds and low on the other two moves) and healing her, I faced the Champion once again, Zane. His first Pokemon was Heracross, who went down to Flamethrower easy enough. Venusaur was then sent out, and also went down to Flamethrower. The next one was a complete blindside - Tyranitar, who resisted ALL of my moves, has an automatic Sandstorm going, and whose Earthquake took down over half my HP. My only choice was to spam Hyper Potions until he ran out of Earthquake PP (10) and hope he didn't crit me. He didn't, and when he started using Aerial Ace, I took him down with Flamethrowers. I was on pins and needles from that one, let me tell you, but the next one was just as difficult. Gyarados had Hydro Pump AND Earthquake, BOTH of which did over half damage to me, combined with the Sandstorm damage. Fortunately, Sandstorm also damaged Gyarados, too, but again I had to spam healing items until he ran out of Earthquake and Hydro Pump PP, and when his final Hydro Pump missed, he was down to a quarter health, and I quickly took him down with Flamethrower. Arcanine was next, and he was no trouble, as well as Alakazam, who fell to a Bite and a ExtremeSpeed, and once again I was the Champion! Grafitti rained down on my Fireheart, and I celebrated. Granted, I was not proud that I had to PP stall Zane, but I was just glad it was over. That solo part goes both ways, I guess. Fireheart ended up at L88, and I had finally completed the Kanto leg of my long USC! Yippee!!!

I'm gonna start a Ruby monochallenge right now, so this USC will probably be on hold until then. I hope to see myself on the Champion board soon, both with Fireheart and the Kingdra run I had on HeartGold. OP, donde estas?

So you can see me on the monochallenge board until then. I may make some comments here every once in a while, though. :D

^ You might have some problems with Fire Red (Namely the fact that your Bagon won't be able to evolve until you get the National Pokedex)

Also, sign me up for a Hitmonchan solo on Fire Red, if I decide later I want to do an ultimate challenge I won't have to do Kanto again, right?

Ok... finally. After around 8-10 E4 runs (all failing at either Drake's Flygon or more frequently his Salamence) I managed to break his wall of flames and completed the game!!

Oh right yeah the Champion... yeah he was slightly tricky but I think my Ruby journey ws over once I bested Drake and his pyromaniacal dragons! :P
Basically, the only thing that was really a challenge after I'd restored Scizor's PP and HP was Skarmory for it's stalling capabilities and Aggron for it's... Thunder. 0.0 Yeah. Paralysis wasn't fun but in the end four Steel Wings ended his little storm.

So yeah. God knows how many months after I started this, I've finally finished the Hoenn region. Now for the most lengthy part... Sinnoh... T.T

Sinnoh Adventure: Update 1

Nothing special... (despite the title) I may do something a little more detailed next time but it's 20 to 11 (pm) here in England so I'm a bit tired... so without further ado...

- After a small amount of trouble, started the game and picked Piplup as my starter and fixed lag as much as possible
- Got through the intro bit and finally sharked in a Scizor in the route before Jubilife City. (for some reason it had Bullet Punch... Lol... oh well, it helps)
- Thrashed Roy (rival) after getting the poketch, then went through the tunnel of doom (forgot the name)
- Obliterated Roark, obtaining the first badge
- Lot's of running... lot's of lag. Got to Floaroma after a while... Scizor is something like level 20+ at this point
- Did the Valley Windworks side questy thing, Scizor gained a few more levels
- Eventually made it to Eterna, destroyed Gardenia (can't remember whether I faced Roy when I entered Eterna... oh well whatever xD)
- Cynthia showed up... and again after I 'vacated' Team Galactic.
- Got the bike, cycled down cycling road, through Mt Coronet with the help of a repel

Hey all, just joined these forums after my brother recommended it.

First post, but I am going to do a solo run of Red with Venusaur. Not too original I know, but then I don't have to hack for a starter.

So, this is a bit late on the post, but at the moment I have 5 badges, and I just got into Saffron City. The Fighting Dojo, Team Rocket, and Giovanni will soon be taken care of. I'll update before Victory Road.

My Team:
Bubba (Venusaur) L54
Razor Leaf
Double Edge
Leech Seed
Body Slam

Dux (Farfetch'd) L5 (HM Slave)
Moves:
Peck
Sand Attack
Fly
Cut

So, I am finished. I have to say, Venusaur is rather HAX with 100% critical Razor Leaf. Kinda makes up for the fact that there is no grass move on par with Thunder/Hydro Pump/Blizzard etc. but still is way OP. I'm probably going to replay either Yellow or LG with a different starter for Gen I, as this was pretty easy.

Final Update, Sliph Co. - Earth Badge

We last met when I was about to tackle Saffron City. I grab a few Fresh Waters and Lemonades from the Celadon Dept. Store vending machines and head out to the guard post outside of Saffron City. I stroll in, hand over a drink to the very thirsty guard, who proceeds to allow me entry into the city. I run up to the gym to claim my sixth badge, but there is a suspiciously familiar man standing in front of the door, blocking my way! Damn Team Rocket and their stupid plans for world domination...

Next, I head next door to find a few trainers and a Master of the fighting-type. His pathetic Hitmonchan/Lee are no match for my OP Razor Leaf attacks, and go down with a whimper. I claim my prize, Hitmonlee, which I name Scrappy, and subsequently deposit into the PC in the nearby Pokemon Center.

I wander around town, pick up a TM from a guy who seems rather in a hurry to get rid of it (bad luck for him, good luck for I). Bubba can't use it though :(
Finally I come across a TR member standing outside a building, and take a look inside. It turns out that Sliph Co. has been taken over by Team Rocket. Bah! 20+ battles later (with multiple heals on the ninth floor for PP restore), I make my way to the Executive office. And of course, ASH (My rival) is waiting there for me...seriously? Go kick Giovanni's ass first before dealing with me, c'mon...

So, after whooping him (Streak of OHkOs is getting insane by now) he runs off to god knows where to train more, and I get a shiny new Lapras from the guy watching the battle (Does anyone here care that a criminal organization has taken over the building?) which ends up as my Strength/Surf HM slave. I jaunt on over to the CEO's room, interrupt their "meeting" and Giovanni challenges me to a battle. With an Onix/Rhyhorn he ain't gonna do much against Bubba. 4 OHkOs later, I claim a Sliph Scope and Master Ball.

I seem to be getting a bit wordy, but that is my favorite part in all of Gen I. After that battle, I head out to Lavender Town, grab the Poke Flute and kill Snorlax on the way to Fuchsia City, defeat Koga, then Sabrina, and grab Surf/Strength along the way. At this point, I am still one-shotting everything with Body Slam or Razor Leaf. After Surfing down to Cinnabar Island, I explore the Pokemon Mansion (The notes there are pretty cool for a side story. Brings back fond memories of going to see the first Pokemon Movie in theaters :D) and grab the key to the Gym in the basement.

This Gym is easy, as most fire-types used are non-evolved here (Lots of this in R/B unfortunately) even Blaine has a Ponyta and Growlithe. All died to critical Razor Leaf and/or Body Slam (for evolved forms).

After claiming my seventh badge, I fly back to Viridian for a battle with the unknown leader. This is by far my favorite Gym (Love the spinning, spinning, spinning...) but as Bubba has a huge type advantage, it was cake to breeze through this. Off to Victory Road!

To be continued in next spoiler tab.


Final Update Pt. 2, Victory Road and E4

I run over to start my journey to Victory Road, when ASH appears for a final test before the Elite Four. Body Slam/Razor Leaf omnomnomnomnom...you know the story. The original Victory Road is the coolest dungeon out of all the games, mostly because of Moltres hanging out here. The legendary bird nets a cool 1550 exp for my Bubba. Funny story here though. I ran out of PP for all my moves about halfway through the cave, and I wanted to save my Elixir for the E4. I killed the rest of the trainers AND Moltres with Struggle (lol). Fortunately, Moltres didn't have any good attacks other than Fire Spin (Which almost killed me anyways) and Bubba survived with a paltry 12/220+ HP left. Recoil damage is a *****.

After pushing boulders around for a while, Lapras got tired so I put him and Dux in my PC to prepare for the Elite Four! Bubba was L72 at this point, but Lorelei is a pushover, as all but 1 of her pokemon are water type (Jynx still got OHkO'd with Razor Leaf though :p). Bruno was cake too, with 2 Onix and the rest have low Special. Agatha was a little tricky, as I have no move that normally affects ghost/poison types. Sleep Powder owned Gengar/Gengar. Haunter got off a L55 Night Shade, but that was it for damage really. I used almost all of my Razor Leaf PP on this fight alone, so I used my lone Max Ether to boost it to max before Lance.

Lance was easy too, even a Hyper Beam from Gyrados/Aerodactyl wasn't enough to seriously damage Bubba, at L79 now, due to a few extra Rare Candy I had lying around. Gyrados - Body Slamx2, Dragonairx2 - Razor Leaf/Body Slam, Aerodactyl - Razor Leafx2, and Dragonite - Body Slamx2. Lance Defeated!

Oh, woe is me, I was here too late! ASH got here first and defeated them already (not that I am surprised, E4 is weak in Gen I) So now it's time to whip that pretty boy for the last time. I don't think he can accept that one OP Pokemon is better than 6 awesome ones.

To make a short story even shorter, L79-L80 Bubba pwned his team and earned a rightful place in the Hall of Fame.

Final Team
Bubba (Venusaur) L80
Moves:
Razor Leaf
Sleep Powder
Leech Seed
Body Slam

Dux (Farfetch'd) L5 (HM Slave)
Moves:
Peck

Ok, here's update on my Ultimate Solo Arcanine run, now on SS. Done quite a bit since last time.


Got to Violet City, destroyed Sprout Tower.
Battled Faulkner. Fireheart was underleveled so it took a couple potions before Pidgeotto finally went down.
Got Rock Smash, taught it to Mack.
Battled through Union Cave to Azalea Town.
Cleaned up Slowpoke Well of Team Rocket, crushed Bugsy with Fireheart.
Firheart handled Zane as well.
Got Cut in Ilex Forest, taught it to Croc.
Reached Goldenrod, battled the underground, got a Radio Card.
Battled Whitney. It took a couple Super Potions and a couple resets since Attract kept immobilizing Fireheart. Finally started hitting with Flame Wheel and was able to take Miltank down. I ended up switching him out and fainting my other Pokemon healing Fireheart while Miltank was using Rollout, and Miltank did not use Attract again for some reason.


Saved the game after beating Whitney, am on my way to National Park and Ecruteak City.

I have half completed my Silver part of the Ultimate Solo and will start the Kanto half in a while.

I started at Lake of Rage after defeating the Gyarados and headed to Team Rockets Hideout and defeated everyone easily.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/SilverSoloRocketHideout.png
I then challenged the gym and found it incredibly easy because it's ice type and Charizard OHKOd almost every thing.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/SilverSoloPryce.png
I headed to Goldenrod to take on Team Rocket after getting a call from Professor Elm and the weaklings were so easy to defeat.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/SilverSoloRocketDefeat.png
I headed to Blackthorn and took on the gym, and with Wing Attack, my wins were kind of easy.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/SilverSoloClaire-1.png
I then headed to the Pokemon League and near the end, I challenged my rival and like always, I came out ontop.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/SilverSoloGreen.png
I then entered the Pokemon League, challenging the league hoping for the best.

After crushing the Elite Four and the Champion I was finally admitted into the Pokemon League as the new Champion.

But...It isn't over yet.


UPDATE:

I went to Kanto and took on the gym leaders in the order of:
Surge, Sabrina, Erika, Misty, Janine, Brock, Blaine, Blue.

I will start on the Hoenn part now.

I started solo running a couple of days ago with a growlithe I named Scrap on Soul Silver
I traded him in as an egg and, unfortunately, the person who traded him to me used a parent with HM Strength, but I'm dealin with it. Been using Togepi as an HM slave.
At this point I've gotten to Goldenrod and lost to Whitney's Miltank once. Gonna challenge her again at some point today.

Charizard (Blast) Ultimate Solo (Hoenn) Update.

I am on my way to Fortree, just got Berries from the Berry Master and will head through tall grass soon.

Started with Charmander, saved Birch and named him Blast. I headed out to battle May and wound up victorious.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloMay1.png
I headed back to Birch, got a Pokedex, Pokeballs and headed towards Petalburg. I helped Wally catch a Ralts and headed to Rustboro to fight Roxanne, the gym leader.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloRoxanne-1.png
It was an average battle, with me having the disadvantage, but I took advantage of my level and Special moves, Ember, and won. I then defeated Team Aqua (again) and found May for another battle.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloMay2.png
Her team was still much too weak for Blast and I continue on to Dewford Town. I took a ride with Mr. Briney and then headed into Granite Cave to deliver a letter to Steven. After that I challenged the gym.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloBrawly-1.png
His Machop and Meditite went down with ease, but even with the level advantage, Makuhita's Bulk Up and Vital Throw combo proved tough...but not too tough. I went to Slateport, delivered the Devon Goods, defeated Team Aqua (again!) and headed up north. I challenged May when I saw her and defeated her rapidly.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloMay3.png
I headed towards Mauville, took down Wally and challenged the gym.It wasn't long before only the gym leader stood before me, but Blast showed his strength with his new fire attack, Flamethrower, and even with paralysis, he went down.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloWattson-1.png
I then headed to see Wally, get Strength and left for Lavaridge. I took many detours, through unknown towns and against ravaging fiery foes and defeated their leader.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloMaxie.png
After the battle, I finally arrived in Lavaridge. I challenged the gym and finally I found Flannery.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloFlannery-1.png
She went down quickly from my Charizard and his insane Wing Attacks and on my way out, I saw May again, but she didn't want to fight. I then left to go back to Petalburg for a gym battle with my Dad, and after OHKOing all of his pokemon and 2HKOing his Slaking, I was awarded a gym badge.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloNorman-1.png
I then headed back to Mauville and headed west towards Fortree City and met Steven again and headed to meet the Berry Master. I grew tired after all of the battling and adventuring and decided to rest by saving the game and setting up a bed for the night.

Blast:

Took on Morty and Lost :/
Morty's Gengar and Haunter are Killing Me


Heheh, I know the feeling. Fireheart was at L30 when I faced Morty, and I got lucky the second time when Gengar used Mean Look, Fireheart used Bite, then Gengar missed with Hypnosis and Fireheart got the second Bite for the KO. No Shadow Ball = win. You'll eventually get through it, but Chuck is just as difficult with DT/Focus Punch/Rock Slide Primeape and Poliwrath with Hypnosis/Surf/Focus Punch. Good luck!

And now, on to my own Ultimate Solo run with Growlithe/Arcanine named Fireheart, currently on SoulSilver. Lots of stuff happened since last time. I'm currently waiting till this afternoon (Wed) for Schoolboy Alan to call me so I can get a Fire Stone to evolve Fireheart into Arcanine.


On the way to Ecruteak, picked up the free Spearow named Kenya because I forgot I had already caught a Hoothoot named Winger lol.
So I got to Ecruteak City, fought Zane in the Burned Tower, released the beasts.
Got surf from the weird old guy after "saving" the Kimono Girl in the Dance Theatre.
Challenged the Ecruteak Gym, lost once to Morty, then was able to beat Morty due to Gengar not using Shadow Ball (Gengar at L25 outspeeds Fireheart at L30).
Went east and got Strength from the Hiker, taught it to Mack.
Went down to Olivine, fought my way up the Lighthouse and talked to Jasmine.
Surfed to Cianwood, picked up the SecretPotion and challenged the Cianwood Gym to get Fly.
Chuck was a nightmare. I lost a couple times before I was able to put down Primape with taking damage by hitting through DT, then went ahead and used Mack as a revive sacrifice after Poliwrath killed Fireheart and Croc as a heal sacrifice, then threw Fireheart back out there and prayed Poliwrath wouldn't use Surf. He didn't, and Intimidite helped bring down Focus Punch's power when I used a full heal after Hypnosis hit once. Fireheart was able to get a flinch off of Headbutt before the final Headbutt killed Poliwrath, and it was finally over. Just a total nightmare.
Got fly, taught it to Kenya, and went back to Olivine.
Gave the SecretPotion to Ampharos, then destroyed Jasmine with Flamethrower.
Went to Mahogany Town from Ecruteak after a quick exploration of Mt. Mortar and also encountering Suicine.
At Mahogany Town, went north to the Lake of Rage, killed Gyarados, talked to Lance.
Back in Mahogany Town, found the Hideout and cleared it out very easily, as Fireheart was about 10-20 levels above pretty much everyone.
Challenged the Gym, destroyed Pryce with Flamethrower.
After a call from Prof. Elm, went back to Goldenrod to stop TR once and for all.
After a long grindfest and one Zane beatdown later, Team Rocket was disbanded again. Seriously though, why not evolve that Koffing, Archer?

http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/9822/ultsoloarcher.png
Isn't TR supposed to be loaded? I've gotten more money from random trainers lol.

Now that Fireheart has learned all the moves I want him to learn as Growlithe, it's time to evolve him to Arcanine and find a Heart Scale to teach it ExtremeSpeed. I do need a Fire Stone too, as I mentioned above. I am saved just outside Mahogany Town, but I'm not going to go any further until I get that Fire Stone.

Charizard Ultimate Solo - Hoenn

Update 2

-I headed up through Route 119 (damn rain) and got to the weather institute and faced Team Aqua and on of their admins.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloShelly.png
-After that, I headed to Fortree City only to meet May and to show her my terrible camera skills.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloMay4.png
-I went to meet Steven to get the Devon Scope and then went to bash Winona.
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloWinona-1.png
-I went down to Lilycove and met up with May again for our final battle (wheres the Swampert?!?!).
http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af321/Lord_Storm/EmeraldSoloMay5.png
-I then went to Mt.Pyre, trained in the mountain and got some cash from selling the trash there and then went to Mt.Chimney and fought my way through.

I then did some grinding in trainer rematches and then left for Meteor Falls to challenge the true champion, Steven

Rode ma Bicycle back to uh... Morty's haha..
Lost... (How does Gengar still attack first!!)
Then Won!! (Gengar= Mean Look + Failed Hypnosis)


It's a waiting game lol.

Okay, time for an update! It took a while but I got a Fire Stone from Alan and used it right away! Arcanine FTW! Probably my favorite Pokemon, with Staraptor a close second lol.

Right now I'm about to challenge the Elite 4. Here are the deets. It's so hard to take screenshots in HG/SS because there's no pause after a battle...



I went through Ice Path after evolving Fireheart into Arcanine.
Flew to Cianwood and went north to the rocks up there, started smashing them.
After a while, I finally got a Heart Scale and used it in
Challenged the gym and was able to win, although I had to revive Fireheart once. Kingdra missed once with Hydro Pump so I was able to take it down with 70 HP left. Then one Dragonair used Aqua Tail, which didn't kill Fireheart, I then used a Hyper Potion, but the final Dragonair didn't have Aqua Tail apparently, so it was unneeded.

http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/2792/ultsoloclair.png
Well, I did use items...


Did the Dragon's Den quest and picked up a Dragon Fang.
Went back home and talked to Elm, who said that the Kimino Girls were waiting for me.
Flew to Ecruteak, destroyed the Kimono Girls, then got a message that Lugia was active (what a coincidence!).
Bought 164 Max Repels (seriously!) with the rest of my money, then went exploring the Whirl Islands.

http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/3129/lugiase.png
Found Lugia!!! and killed it of course.


Went back to New Bark Town and surfed east, eventually making my way to Victory Road.
At the exit, fought Zane again, who didn't stand a chance.

http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/1254/ultsolorival.png
For some reason, I think you're wrong...


Exited Victory Road and arrived at Indigo Plateau
Then I realized that I forgot to get Dragon Pulse from Clair, so I went back to Blackthorn to get it. I think I'm gonnna need that against Lance, although I'm not sure what to forget...hmmm...
I am about to challenge the Elite 4 with just Fireheart, no revive sacrafices.


Take note of my incredible camera skills...:D

Fireheart (Arcanine, M) - L59 @ Shell Bell
Nature: Lonely
Ability: Intimidate
Moves: Crunch, Flare Blitz, Flamethrower, ExtremeSpeed

Mack, Croc, and Kenya are boxed for the Elite Four.
I also taught Flash to Togepi (L1, boxed) for the Whirl Islands.

__________

Eidt: Elite Four Update!

So I got through the Elite Four pretty easily, but the Champion Lance was no picnic, just like FireRed.
Read the spoiler for pictures and details.

http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/3258/ultsolowill.png
Fireheart Crunched Will to death, with a couple Flamethrowers for Jynx and Exeggutor.

http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/1408/ultsolokoga.png
Koga was OHKOed. Flare Blitz damaged Fireheart a bit.

http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/8399/ultsolobruno.png
Bruno went down easily enough. The damage you see here is most from Flare Blitz and Hitmonchan's Thunderpunch.

http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/4476/ultsolokaren.png
Karen was easy too. Houndoom was taken care of by two ExtremeSpeeds, and the rest went down to Flamethrower or Flare Blitz.

http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/1856/ultsoloprelance.png
All by his lonesome, Fireheart braves the dragons...

Lance was horrible. The Intimidite by Gyarados is really damaging to Fireheart, as I decided not to teach Fireheart Dragon Pulse, so my two attacking moves, Crunch and ExtremeSpeed, were both attack based. I used Flare Blitz on Aerodactyl, as Crunch and ExtremeSpeed were both 3HKO while Flare Blitz was a 2HKO, but I couldn't use Flare Blitz on anyone else as the recoil damage was too much for Fireheart to survive. The Shell Bell really helped Fireheart survive some of those Outrages/Dragon Rushes, and I had to use healing items at least every third turn to fight another day. Was able to survive the Paralysis against Charizard, his final Pokemon, with ExtremeSpeed. Eventually I was able to make it through after 4 or 5 resets, and I was crowned Champion!

I'll do it with Slowpoke/Slowbro.

November 6th, 2010, 03:11 PM
Well I ended up powering through Kanto in one shot. Lots of pictures in the spoilers! I will start the Hoenn region in a bit. I have some RL issues to deal with as well as other ongoing challenges, so it might be a little while.


I ended up cutting out the bottom screen of most of the screenshots in an effort to save room.
In order of defeat:

http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/7019/ultsolosurge.png
Nothing special here. Just overpowered him.

http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/5075/ultsolosabrina.png
Crunch FTW. OHKOed everything in the gym.

http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/4486/ultsoloerica.png
Well, Fireheart is a fire Pokemon...

http://img602.imageshack.us/img602/1136/ultsolojanine.png
Not much happened here either. Janine is the weakest Gym Leader by far. Most of the damage is from Flare Blitz (as is the damage against Erica).

http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/8845/ultsolomisty.png
After fixing the Power Plant and battling through Rt 24, Crunch and ExtremeSpeed were enough to take care of business.



A quick insert here. After getting the Expansion Radio Card, I woke up Snorlax, then caught with my Master Ball on account of being lazy. I then switched out Fireheart's Shell Bell for the more reliable Leftovers that Snorlax was holding - this is the only sure-fire place to get Leftovers on HGSS, as the restaurant in Celadon doesn't have one anymore.


http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/6937/ultsolobrock.png
I actually lost once due to a stupid use of Flare Blitz with 20 HP left, but it was all good. Brock's Pokemon resist three of Fireheart's moves, and Crunch is physical, so their high Defense came into play. Flamethrower was able to do some damage against the normal rock-types due to their low Special Defense, but Omastar and Kabutops were pains in the butt.

http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/5729/ultsolozanemtmoon.png
On the way through Mt. Moon, fought Zane for the last set location battle against him (the rest are based on days of the week). Fireheart got paralyzed as you can see but his team has a large weakness to fire, especially without a water Pokemon.

http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/4666/ultsoloblaine.png
Easy enough with only three Pokemon. Rapidash's Bounce paralyzed Fireheart, but it didn't matter much.

http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/4448/ultsoloblue.png
Had to use a couple healing items, but made it through. One stupid move that Blue made was having his Arcanine use Roar, which got rid of Fireheart's double Intimidated status. After Croc fainted, Arcanine came back out and ExtremSpeeded for the KO. Pidgeot (Why is this his strongest Pokemon?) was one shotted by Flare Blitz.

After defeating Blue, I went back up to Indigo Plateau to challenge the Elite Four again, their Pokemon teams stronger than ever. I started the run at L84, and once again, my only trouble was with Lance. I forgot to deposit my HM slaves this time around, and while I never had to use a revive sacrifice, they helped out in an unexpected (and stupid) way in the battle against Lance.

http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/8274/ultsololance2.png
This...took a while. I taught Fireheart Dragon Pulse, forgetting Flamethrower in order to make it much easier to deal with the dragons. I had to reset a few times so I could figure out the right move order and when to use items. I was in no danger of running out, having started the E4 run with 100 Full Restores :D. Well, Lance has Slamance kead, who has Intimidite, then Gyrados was next, who also has Intimidate, so my Attack was really lacking after that. For some reason, Lance's L75 Dragonite has Draco Meteor instead of Outrage, which doesn't complement Dragonite's high Attack/average Special Attack stats very well, as well as Draco Meteor's stat-lowering effect. Anyway, after beating Dragonite pretty easily with Dragon Pulse, I was in danger of running out of PP for it, when Garchomp comes along and tries to use Roar, fails, and then Fireheart 2HKOed him with his last 2 Dragon Pulses. If Fireheart had been alone, Garchomp might have KOed Fireheart with Earthquake, although using Roar on a Pokemon that has been Intimidated twice and has Intimidate as an ability is a stupid idea. I was able to take down Altaria (downgrade, lol - Kingdra would have been much better, and also would have been a nightmare for Fireheart to deal with, especially with no Dragon Pulses left) and Charizard with repeated Crunches, even if they didn't do much with Fireheart's lowered Attack. Crunch was able to lower Defense a couple times, which helped a lot.

http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/8528/ultsolohgsshof2.pnghttp://img181.imageshack.us/img181/3424/ultsolochamp2.png
Hall of Fame for the second time (first for HM slaves). Got Fireheart's little bio there too.

After teaching Rock Climb to Mack and finding the Flamthrower TM outside Mt. Silver and replacing Dragon Pulse with it, it was time to climb the mountain! I did find Moltres and killed it. Then I found Red admiring the view as the King of the Hill :cool:.
http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/2318/hgssred.png


http://img577.imageshack.us/img577/3954/ultsolored.png
Finally beat him! It took like 45 minutes to beat him. Pikachu was OHKOed with Flare Blast. Blastoise for some reason never used his Hydro Cannon, instead using Focus Blast. I was able to take it down with Crunches. Lapras went down to a couple Flamethrowers + Burn damage. Venusaur was OHKOed by Flare Blast. I finally got wise to when Snorlax would use Giga Impact (to use a Full Restore), and Snorlax's Crunch stopped lowering Fireheart's Defense as well, so I was finally able to take him down, then Charizard was easy in comparison. 2 Crunches + a Flare Blast was enough to finally beat Red and complete the Johto region, if not in a dignified manner (lol, Full Restores galore).



Just realized I never killed Suicine...oh well.

I am going to start an Ultimate Solo Challenge using Dragonite. LeafGreen, Crystal, Sapphire, and Platinum.

Update for my solo challenge.

Started the game and name myself I, rival name of ASH. Picked Squirtle as starter for HM slave and beat down ASH's Bulbasaur. Got Oak's Parcel and a PokeDex. Hacked in an egg Dratini and hatched it in Viridian City. Traversed Viridian Forest armed with Wrap and Leer, learned Thunder Wave at level 8, and got to Pewter City around level 10. 5 level grind later (Ran out of money buying potions to heal for using Struggle lol) Isaac learned Twister, and beat Brock handily.

Update for my solo run with Isaac (Dragonite) on LeafGreen. I forget screenshots a lot so I only have a few.

I had a pretty long update, but it was lost due to a weird login issue so I will make this shorter.

Mt. Moon - 8th Badge
Went through Mt. Moon, beat rival ASH, grabbed Secret Power TM and learned Dragon Rage after Nugget Bridge. Got S.S. Ticket from Bill, beat Misty and taught Isaac Water Pulse (TM from Misty), forgetting Twister. I have full type coverage now with Secret Power and Water Pulse.

Ran through the Underground Path to Vermilion and boarded S.S. Anne. Isaac evolved into Dragonair just before my next rival battle.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/ASH2.png

Rubbed the Captain's back for Cut, and returned to Vermilion City. Ran out to the east and caught a Drowzee and Spearow, and traded for Farfetch'd. Taught it Cut and entered the Viridian Gym.

As Isaac resists electric, it was pretty easy. Claimed Thunder Badge and a useless Shock Wave TM. Talked to the Fan Club President and got a Bike Voucher. Ran through Diglett's Cave (caught one along the way) and walked around in the grass to catch a Pidgey and Ratatta to get 10 pokemon for Flash. Taught it to Drowzee.

Returned to Cerulean City and went to Rock Tunnel to get to Lavender Town. Once I arrived there, I went through the Underground Path to get to Celadon City. Got Tea from an old lady and stocked up on Fresh Waters and Lemonades. Went to Saffron, beat the Fighting Dojo and got a Hitmonlee for my PC box.

Went and got HM02 Fly, taught it to Ch'Ding, then took care of Rocket Hideout in Celadon, beat Erica, scaled Pokemon Tower and got the Poke Flute. I knocked out one Snorlax and managed to catch the second on the first try (Thunder Wave/2 Secret Powers). Snorlax is a great HM slave.

Fought ALL the trainers around Fuschia City including Cycling Road and East of Fuschia to Silent Bridge. Got a Super Rod too (I dunno why). During this training:

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/evolve.png

Went to the Safari Zone and got Surf and the Gold Teeth for strength. Taught them both to Snorlax, and taught Isaac Fly, replacing Dragon Rage. I also got TM27 Return from a lady in the lookout tower near Lavender, which I taught to Isaac, replacing Thunder Wave. I didn't see the need for it since Isaac is severely overleveled and has 150+ speed now.

Beat Koga in Fuschia City to claim the Marsh Badge, and flew to Saffron to take out Team Rocket once and for all. Fought every trainer, mostly OHKOs, and found my rival waiting for me again. Thrashed him and Giovanni (Water Pulse owns him) to claim a Master Ball and the ability to fight Sabrina.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/giovanni2.png

I'm sure you can figure out what happened to her. One shot her entire Team with Return. The damage is only because I didn't heal from previous battles.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/sabrina.png

Flew to Pallet Town and surfed on Snorlax to Cinnabar, got the Secret Key from the Pokemon Mansion and destroyed Cinnabar Gym with Water Pulse. Apparently, there are exactly 20 pokemon in this gym, as I started with 20PP and OHKO'd every pokemon except Blaine's L47 Arcanine, who survived with a sliver of health. Full Restore and 2 Flys later, I claimed my Volcano Badge and a Fire Blast TM.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/blaine.png

Bill was waiting for me outside to take me to the Sevii Islands, but I don't really care about that, so I blew him off and headed to Viridian City to get my last Badge. Ground Type gym loses to Water Pulse as well.

That's all for now. Victory Road and the Elite Four are next!

EDIT: Finished! Final update in the next spoiler tab.

Final Update - Victory Road and Elite Four


Started off in Viridian City and headed west towards the Pokemon League Gate. ASH stopped me on the way for a final test. He didn't pass as Isaac swept his team with Return/Water Pulse.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/ASH8.png

Victory Road was next, and I gained a couple levels there. Just before challenging the Elite Four, I taught Isaac Dragon Claw (TM02 found in Victory Road) and Earthquake (TM26 from defeating Giovanni for the third time), replacing Secret Power and Water Pulse.

Lorelei was first up, and probably the scariest, as Isaac is 4x weak to Ice. Dewgong got off an Aurora Beam, but Isaac survived it. The rest were OHkOs to Return and Fly.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/lorelei.png

Forgot the screenshot for Bruno, but Isaac used Earthquake for the Onix, and Fly for Hitmonchan/Lee and Machamp.

Agatha was also rather easy, as Gengar x2, Arbok, and Haunter are weak to Earthquake, and Golbat is weak in general. (I used Return for it)

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/agatha.png

Lance was up next, and armed with Dragon Claw, I swept his team rather easily. Gyrados took 2 Returns, Aerodactyl took 2 Dragon Claws, and Dragonite/Dragonair were OHkO to Dragon Claw. Oh yeah, I used the 6 Rare Candy in my bag before Lance as well.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b329/boomerjp/Pokemon/Isaac%20Solo/lancesolo.png

After I defeated Lance, he told me that ASH already beat them and became the champion! So I had to beat him to claim my rightful place on the top. This battle was a bit one sided, just like all the rest of the Elite Four. Pigeot went down to 2x Return, Alakazam took a single Return, Rydon took a single Earthquake, so did Arcanine. Gyrados took 2x Fly, and Venusaur took a super effective Fly to finish him off!

Alright. So, I continued to train my eevee until I thought it would be ready to take on Falkner. After a quick trip to the Sprout Tower, Falkner was defeated relatively easily. I essentially spammed Sand-Attack and Tackle the entire time until his pokemon went down. I then continued until I got to Azalea (Union Cave was a real pain) and I am about to challenge the Rockets before taking on Bugsy.

Sorry this update wasn't too long, I've had a lot of work that needed to be done.

ATUHOR'S NOSE:
Wow. Talk about forever, I haven't updated this in, what, five, six months? I guess I kind of died. (Plus marching band is a killer.) But I'm back, and I've got my final Johto log to share. Rejoice! Also, digital cookies to whoever can correctly place the allusion here. ;) (PSST. There are two of them. One really obvious one and one hidden in the actual log.)

Day 29

Yeah, it's been a while, I know, but the past week or so has been really busy. Between Gym battles, Wingman, and other things, I haven't gotten much time at all. Let me tell you, that boy does not give up. A broken arm and a weak shoulder, yet the guy insists on pressing on. And Kanto was the place he demanded to go.

First, let me explain a little. I've been writing this - yes, writing - for a while now, but I haven't quite described how. This is a secret little journal that I have and have had for a while. I secretly keep it in Wingman's backpack - it was his notebook, anyways - and write in it whenever I get the chance. I use it to keep a record of my new life so I can look back on it later on. Part of me hopes Wingman finds it one day; I don't expect him to read it, seeing as he can't understand me talk, so how could he understand these words. I just want him to know about it. But I don't want to tell him. He should find it on his own.

But back to the main focus. In the week or so since my last entry, Wingman has recovered well, though he still has the cast and sling. Caroline is still with us, and I can tell she has feelings for Wingman; now if only he could sense them. I've been trying to drop him hints, but he's just too thick skulled. And that's something, coming from me.

Maybe it's that he's too focused on training now. We've been all over Kanto recently, mostly flying on Caroline's Pidgeot. Strangely enough, I haven't ever met that guy. Or girl. I haven't got a clue. But whatever.

The whole thing we were there to do was clear our minds of the stuff that happened in Johto. We tried everything to wipe the events off our thoughts, but Wingman's injuries were like a permanent reminder. Gym Leader rematches, campouts by the beach, shopping sprees. (That one was Caroline's suggestion, why Wingman and I agreed, I'll never know. I guess we were willing to try anything.) Nothing quite got us out of the slump, but for a while, it felt like normal.

After a while, when there seemed to be nothing left, Wingman decided to head home to Viridian City. We were just gonna visit his mom and check out how everything was going and crash there for a while. We ended up learning about a place called Mt. Silver while we were there. A couple of trainers were talking about it and about how only the toughest trainers could go there. Of course, Wingman was his normal self, wanting to go there right away. And when he gets like that, it's best to just smile and nod. There's no changing his mind by that time.

The whole trip felt like something out of a horror movie. No trainers, no people, and almost no wild Pokémon. I was kind of creeped out. I could tell that Caroline was, too, but Wingman was somehow not phased at all. At one point, Caroline whispered to me "How can he be so confident? Does he just ignore everything?" I shrugged and said "Maybe he's just stupid." Caroline couldn't understand that of course, but the shrug and tone sent the right vibe. She shrugged as well and sighed. "Whatever it is, I envy him. This place is creepy."

That's about how the rest of the walk felt, even when we got to the mountain. I remember looking up at it and being unable to see the peak, as it was shrouded with clouds. Vegetation refused to grow there, and it seemed that even the sun sheltered itself from here. The thick fog surrounding the peak stared at us ominously, as if hiding an immense darkness from the world. As I stared back, I started to lose myself into the mysterious abyss. 'And this also,' I thought, 'is one of the dark places on the earth.'

"Hey! Hurry up, Titan!"

I snapped out of whatever trance the fog had put me in and noticed Wingman and Caroline starting upward. Making haste, I caught up and we carried on.

I cannot recall all of what happened in the fog, only that we stumbled around like Combuskens without heads, trying to make sense of the darkness surrounding us. The sun didn't stand a chance in that dark place where the gray void opened up before us and swallowed the land after we passed, lapping and drooling at our heels, waiting for us to falter. We stuck close to the ground, not wanting to lose it - it was the last thing we had, for we had already lost ourselves when we entered - and followed it as one would follow a master; groveling, worried, and hoping for a sign of abatement. Every now and then, it'd throw us a scrap of insight or a morsel of direction, which we snatched up eagerly like sewer Rattatas. It chose to lead us on; we had no option other than follow or be lost.

Eventually the fog gave up on trying to break us and saw fit to let us loose. It seemed we had it defeated, but now I understand that it was only allowing its partner to take over. The temporary lift of the blinding darkness made way for an even more upsetting and unforgiving misfortune. Snow, hail, sleet, rain, all mingled together on this plain of ice and slush. Trudging through it posed an even harder challenge than the fog did. For at least in the fog, one could still feel their extremities and hear the reassuring words of their companions. So not only were we blind again, but we were also left without sound. Howling at us as a were-Mightyena would at the moon, the storm covered up all sounds, giving the illusion of a soundless barrier over our ears. It is a profound silence; no calls from wild Pokémon, no chatter of friends, no crunching of the snow beneath our feet. Only the gale. The way it pulled at clothes and skin; snatched all light up and squeezed it out of sight; stabbed at limbs, cheeks, eyes - with deadly precision. It was maddening.

I did a lot of thinking up there. Thinking about things that never should be thought about. But darkness has a way of persuasion that can trick one into paranoia. It may sound crazy, but when you stand in a raging storm blind as a Zubat with nothing to listen to but the wind, your mind wanders to dark thoughts. The snow may be pure white all around you, but it just as well be the color of the blackest night in the blackest reaches of the world to reflect the darkness it hides.

Then, all at once, a dark mass stained the sheet of snow and we no longer felt lost to the storm. Hopeful and excited, we sprinted full out for it. As we approached, it became more and more clear that it was another person, facing away from us. Reaching him, I saw him to be around Wingman's age, for he wore similar clothes and was the same general build. However, as he turned, he appeared to be in a trance, staring past us at some impossible object with empty eyes. He couldn't have been past the age of 17, but he had the eyes of an old man who has seen the world in all its glory and vulgarity.

He spoke not a word with his mouth, but rather, his eyes. They looked through me - oh, how they penetrated! like a candle would burn through a sheet of paper, painfully slow and scarring - then through Wingman. It was an unmistakable challenge.

(That part was italicized because it is my favorite passage in this whole log. In fact, I think it's the best thing I've written thus far.)

The toughest part of the whole battle was the storm. Unrelenting and determined to claim one of us, it whirled all around us. Its frigid winds cut through us like steak, tearing back and forth, rending us incapacitated. Moving my arm became a chore; actually attacking was like being asked to go to hell and back.

Not to say that the trainer's Pokémon were tough. They put up the best fight I've ever encountered. The Pikachu should have been easy, but that bugger was quick, and he knew how to hide. I blasted Shadow Balls everywhere, but none revealed the little rat's location. But when it finally attacked and I could find it, I blasted it with a powerful Earthquake, and it couldn't hide from that.

The Espeon took some amount of figuring and prediction, as it often teleported everywhere to avoid my attacks. But it followed a pattern, and that was its eventual downfall. A Shadow Ball to the right location put it out.

A Snorlax followed it, but its strategy was not evading, but rather tanking. Somehow, it took an Earthquake directly and shook it off. The second one just about did it, so a quick jab with Thunderpunch took it the rest of the way.

The last three were all of the Kanto starters at their final evolutions. Both Blastoise and Charizard put up fair fights, but Thunderpunch proved too much for them in the end. The Charizard, however, was tricky; it being able to fly gave it a great deal more maneuverability and evasion. I had to focus and wait for just the right moment.

His last Pokémon was the final Kanto starter, a Venusaur. I whittled it down to near fainting with an Earthquake; it stole some of my HP; lather, rinse, repeat. In the end, I got lucky with a very well placed hit, taking it down.

During the whole battle, I could sense the cold getting to Wingman. His cast didn't have any warm covers, and the jabs of the cold air were able to penetrate it. But once the battle was over, I rushed to his side and did my best to shield him from the cold. Caroline was already standing by him, huddling for warmth.

As for the mystery trainer, he revived his Espeon and pulled something out of his pocket. It was a letter of some sort. The envelope was black, and it had a red seal on it. In one smooth motion, he tossed the letter with amazing speed at us. I snatched it before it could hit Wingman and stared at the trainer. He stared back, his cold gaze once more boring through me. Then his Espeon began glowing, and we were gone.

I knew that we were being teleported somewhere, but I did not know where. When we got there, we recognized it as Wingman's house. After settling back in and warming up, Wingman and Caroline told Mrs. Walker (Wingman's mom) about what happened.

Oh, before I forget, I learned that Wingman's real name is Matthew Walker. I remember she mentioned something about an older brother who had gone training with a Beldum he got from some professor by the name of Oak. Nothing amazing about it, just found it noteworthy.

When they got to the letter, I put it on the table and Mrs. Walker ripped it open. Inside was a short note and a pair of tickets for a luxury cruise ship to a place they called 'Hoenn'. Caroline read the note aloud.

"'You earned these. Congratulations, strong trainer.' That's it?" she said. "Not even a name? How odd."

"Well, I ain't turning down free cruise tickets!" Wingman declared. "And who knows, this Hoenn place could be cool."

And it was settled, once again due to Wingman's extreme stubborn-ness. In three days time, we'll be leaving Vermillion City on a cruise ship to Hoenn. I can't help but say I'm gonna miss Kanto. I've got a few things to wrap up before we leave, so I'll update when we're in Hoenn. So this is sayonara, Kanto and Johto. Next stop, Hoenn!

Started the Ruby portion of my Ultimate Solo Challenge starring Fireheart, aka Arcanine, today.

Went from Littleroot to just outside Fallarbor Town.



In the beginning, I named myself Cyrus. No rival name here, which is lame.
Chose Mudkip (female, lol) for HM slave purposes, named her JollyRoger.
After the rest of the initial plot stuff, I hacked in a Growlithe egg. Got a Mild nature and Intimidate after a few hatches (kept getting Flash Fire, damn it).
Started my journey to Petalburg. Caught 3 Zigzagoons. My main HM slave one is named Swipe. The other two are Pickuppers. Also caught a Seedot named Sinai for Flash, who will be replaced by Tropius eventually.
Got through the Forest easily due to Ember. Helped out the Devon guy.
Arrived in Rustburo City and went up top to fight the trainers there before my battle with Roxanne.
Challenged Roxanne.

http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/2654/ultsoloroxanne.png
This took a few tries. Finally Geodude used Rock Throw instead of Rock Tomb (which lowers Speed) while Fireheart 2HKOed with Bite, and then was able to take down Nosepass with a lot of Bites, Nosepass using Harden, and Rock Tomb missing once, which was key.


After that was over, I saved Peeko and the Devon Goods from the Magma Grunt.
Got the Pokesav from the Prez, and Cut from the Cutter. Taught to Swipe.
Went down to Briney's house and got a lift to Dewford Town.
Got Flash and taught it to Sinai.
Challenged the gym.

http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/4414/ultsolobrawly.png
This one took a few tries as well. Once I was set up for the finishing blow but Ember missed and Fireheart was beat on the counter. Fireheart finally burned Makuhita with the first Ember, and after a couple Super Potions and Arm Thrust not hitting more than 3 times, Fireheart was able to take Brawly down.


Then I went into Granite Cave with Flash usable. Found Steven easily enough.
Got a lift to Slateport City, where I did a few things.
Delvered the Devon Goods, then defeated the two Grunts.
After buying a few Calciums, I went north and beat all the trainers before the underpass as well as the Trick House.
Halfway under the bridge, I encountered May for the first real battle against her for Fireheart.

http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/9682/ultsolomay1.png
Easy. Wailmer got a Water Gun off, but nothing too serious. Numel didn't stand a chance, and Grovyle was taken down by two Embers. Fireheart was several levels above her team.


After getting the Itemfinder:D, I continued on to Mauville.
Found Wally in front of the gym.

http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/8827/ultsolowally1.png
Fireheart OHKOed Ralts with Bite.


Got the Bicycle, then went back down to Slateport, Fireheart destroying the Magnemites on Cycling Bridge with Ember.
Got some Harbor Mail and a couple more Calciums, eventually maxing out Fireheart's Calcium usage. I bought Carbos the next few times.
Went back, got Rock Smash (taught to Swipe).
Beat the trainers on the way to Verdanturf Town and tried to Rock Smash, but realized I needed the DynamoBadge first.
Finally challenged the gym.

http://img547.imageshack.us/img547/9734/ultsolowattson.png
Fireheart was at L31 at this point and had Flame Wheel. All three of Wattson's Pokemon (Magnemite, Voltorb, Magneton) were OHKOed by Flame Wheel.


At this point Fireheart is starting to get really overleveled, and he shouldn't face another challenge until the Elite Four and maybe Wallace before that.
Went back to the Rustboro tunnel and Rock Smash reunited the lovers. Got Strength as a thank you, which was taught to JollyRoger.
Went back through the tunnel and eaded north from Mauville.
Went through Fiery Path.
Am currently in the middle of the ashes on my way to Fallarbor Town.

Edit: Update #2: Continuing on...

From Fallarbor Town to Mossdeep City.



Made my way through the ash to Fallarbor Town.
Nothing much here. I don't need the Move Tutor this time.
Went down southand around the rocky terrian to Meteor Falls
Discovered Team Magma taking the Meteorite from Dr. Cosmo.
After continuing on to Rustboro, I went through the tunnel and eventually back to Mauville.
Went north again and took the tram up the mountain.
Beat the three grunts and Maxie.

http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/6332/ultsolomaxie1.png
I actually lost twice, once due to Bite missing on Camerupt, the second time to a crit Magnitude. The third time was the charm, and after Camerupt didn't use Magnitude once, Fireheart was able to beat Maxie.


Got the Meteorite, than after jumping down Jagged Pass to Lavaridge Town, I made my way back to Fallarbor.
In Fallarbor, I gave the Meteorite to Dr. Cosmo for TM27, Return! I immediately taught it to Fireheart, forgetting the little-used Roar.
Made my way back to Lavaridge, where I challenged the gym.

http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/8227/ultsoloflannery.png
Flannery was not difficult at all. After the first Slugma put up a Light Screen in response to Bite, Fireheart switched to Return and after disposing of the second Slugma, 3HKOed Torkoal for the win.


With the Heat Badge in hand, I was able to use Strength out of battle.
So I headed over to the Fiery Path and got the Fire Stone in there for later.
Now it was time to face my father in a family showdown at the Petalburg gym.

http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/6836/ultsolonorman.png
This took a couple tries, as Facade dealt big damage to Fireheart from Norman's L31 Slakoth, and Flame Wheel wasn't doing enough to counter that. Finally, Slakoth started using Focus Punch instead of Facade, and Fireheart was able to beat him.


Wally's dad then gave me Surf, which I taught to JollyRoger.
I ended up surfing from Slateport to Petalburg and north, too.
During the surfing, I encountered a shiny purple Tentacool! I caught it and named it Ruby.
Eventually, I made my way to Mauville and surfed east and got on the road to Fortree City. On the way there, Fireheart reached L49 and learned Flamethrower.
I pulled out my Fire Stone and...

http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/6770/arcaninec.png
Here we go!


Fireheart learned ExtremeSpeed here at L49 as well. I now had my moveset for the rest of the game in Bite, Flamethrower, Return, and ExtremeSpeed.
I had 3 PP Ups on hand, so I used them on ExtremeSpeed.
On Rt. 119, before the Weather Institute, I caught a Tropius at full HP with a Great Ball. I was shocked.
Named it Palmer, and replaced Sinai with Palmer in my party. Taught Palmer Flash.
Up came the Weather Institute. Fireheart pretty much owned with just Bite. Opted not to take Castform.
Crossed the bridge, where May accosted me.
She was way too easy. Bite OHKOed all her Pokemon except for Grovyle (90%). Forgot the screenshot.
She gave me Fly, then reminded me that I need the Fortree gym badge to use it. Taught Fly to Palmer.
Healing up at the Fortree Pokemon Center, I went down to the bridge where Steven was and got the Devon Scope.
Killed the Kecleon, then scared the one blocking the gym away.
Challenged the gym.

http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/478/ultsolowinona.png
OHKOs were in order here. Flamethrower for Swellow, Return for Pelipper and Altaria, and Flamethrower for Skarmory to sweep the gym without being touched except by a Quick Attack earlier in the gym by a Swellow. Just see for yourself.


After I got the badge, I continued on the road to Lilycove.
Arriving at Lilycove, I fought May for the last time.

http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/7240/ultsolomay3.png
Nothing new. She sucks.


After meandering around town for a bit, I took off for Mt. Pyre.
After beating the inside, I went outside and arrived to late to stop Maxie from taking the Blue Orb. The elders gave the Red Orb, though. They must not be apart!!!
Flew to Slateport, where Stern's sub was stolen.
Went into the Magma Hideout off the coast and cleared it out easily, but not before the sub departed for the great deep unknown.
Surfed to Mossdeep City for the next badge and the HM Dive.
Challenged the Mossdeep Gym.

http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/484/ultsolotateliza.png
Pretty easy. It had the lame aspect of being a double battle, but it worked out ok. JollyRoger didn't even take any damage, and Bite was sufficient to beat Tate and Liza's lone two Pokemon. Late screenshot here.


When I got out of there, I visited Steven's house and he gave me the HM Dive. Taught Dive to JollyRoger.
Saved the game still at Mossdeep City.


Am about to set off for the Underwater Team Magma Beatdown.

I have a question. I AM going to finish my Nidoking solo challenge, but first I'd like to know this: if I wanted to, could I do a solo challenge on Black/White? Not as a part of the USC, but as an individual challenge. I'm just curious, and it's not urgent that you tell me. I'll start it no matter what the answer, I just wanna know if I could post progress here and what-not. Probably gonna be using Mogurew-Doryuuzu. Thanks very much!

I'd think you could. I mean, you can do multiple solo challenges at once, so why not two? Oh, and nice posts!

I understood I could do two at once, it's doing one on Black/White that I wasn't so sure about. It doesn't have a section on the front page, so I just wanted to check. And thank you, I put a lot of time into the story. It's a writer's habit.

Black/White isn't on the front page because Myrrhman hasn't updated since September 9th or something like that.

So, I was about to beat the elite 4, and Ihadn't saved since after Brock and my cat knocked out the power plug. mMy computer shut down and I have to restart, so I'm just going to choose a new Pokemon:


Porygon 2!!! :t233:
will start now

So, I started up my game. Named myself Stephen and Rival Aric. I decide to look on my computer and I find a potion. I withdraw it, it might come in use. I decide to go downstairs and leave the house. I felt a little risky, so I tried to go into the Pokemon inhabited area. This person named Oak is like "No, don't go out there! You might get torn to pieces!" He stops for a second and is like, "Come with me, I have something for you. I try to fight him, but he won't let go.

When I get to his house, I stopped fighting. He says, "You can have a Pokemon! I have three, and then you can explore! I have three choices, Porygon2, Squirtle, and Charmander." Aric interuptes, "What about me? "I want one!" Oak says, "Hold your horses! You'll get your turn." I snicker. I decide to take the Porygon2, whom I name Jeff. Aric takes the Charmander, and asks for a battle. I accept the challenge, and whoop his *** with Jeff.

I venture off into the places I couldn't before. Soon, I get to Viridian City. I go up into the mart to buy Pokeballs but the clerk insisted I take a parcel to Oak. I venture back down and give Oak his parcel, which he gives a Pokedex and pokeballs. I was like WTF, You could've giving some the whole time? I go and train to level 12 after and Jeff learned Psybeam. I try to go to the Elite Four but Aric stops me and challenges me to another battle. I whoop his *** again with Jeff+Psybeam.

I head north of Viridian into the forest. I own lots of bugs, and come out covered in bug guts. I go north a little more and get to Pewter City, where I heard there was a Gym. I take on the gym,, and beat the Leader Brock with Psybeam.I go east towards a cave, but some guy stops me and gices me some shoes. I go to the cave and realize how much I hate this pokemon called Zubat. When I get out, two karate people try to teach Jeff how to kick and punch, but he doesn't understand the concept. I just keep going and find a town called Cerulean City. I see a gym, so I heal up and go beat the Leader Misty with Psybeam and Thief.

I try to go up, but a police officer blocks my way, so I decide to go north, where I find my rival. He challenges me, I defeat him. I go up a bridge and when I deffeated all the trainers I got a nigget. Then I try to get recruited into Team Rocket, but I say no. I meat this talking Clefairy after defeating many more trainers. He says that he is a human, so I decide to turn him back. I get a ticket to a boat for helping him and decide to go. The police officer finally moved, and I go through. I go south. and arrive in Vermillion City. I find the boat and go on it. My rival challenges me again and I defeat him again. I talk to the seasick captain and make him feel better. He gives me a worthless move, so I teach it to my slave, Paras. I find the gym and finally get to go in it, It take sme hours to get to the leader Lt. Surge, but I defeat him.

I go back up to Cerulean and go where I couldn't go before, because a tree. I go back there and find a cave. I get through the cave with difficulty, but I'm safe. I go south into this town called Lavender Town.It has a sad feeling, so I leave and go west. I end up in Celadon, where I hit the gym again. There is a perverted guy standing outside staring at all the women inside. I go inside and there are only women. I beat the Leader Erika and go to the Game Corner. I spend 70,000 pokedollars to get the TM 13 Ice Beam and teach it to Jeff. I then go east and get a TM 29 Psychic. I teach that to Jeff, and then I saved.

FINISHED the Ruby portion of my Ultimate Solo Challenge starring Fireheart, aka Arcanine!

From Mossdeep City to the Champion crown:



So I went Surfing from Mossdeep to go Diving for Team Magma's stolen submarine.
Fought a few trainers first, than Dove for the depths.
Found the cave entrance easy enough and surfaced.
There are only a few trainers here, which is fine for Fireheart. Don't want him getting worn out.
Made it through the boulder puzzles to the inner chamber where Groudon was sleeping.
Maxie showed up.

http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/2848/ultsolomaxie2.png
Fireheart is just overpowering right now. The only one that wasn't OHKO was Camerupt, and he used Amnesia, so he didn't get an attack off.


The Blue Orb self-activated, and UV Hell was upon us!
After a quick stop down southeast in Fallarbor Town, I went back up to find the greatest city in Hoenn.
Surfed around the way to Sootopolis City and dove down and under the wall to find the city locked up except for the Pokemon Center.
Went up top to find Steven and a sailor named Wallace waiting for me.
They escorted me to the Cave of Origins.
I went in and navigated my way down to where Groudon was, picking up the Waterfall HM on the way, and....

http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/3043/groudonf.png
OHKO with Flamethrower (boosted by Drought, I might add).


Went back out and after Steven moved, challenged the gym.

http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/2448/ultsolowallace.png
I was lucky that Wallace's water Pokemon didn't have anything more powerful than Water Pulse, because Milotic almost killed Fireheart there before being 2HKOed by Return. It was raining at the time, too.


After beating Wallace, I went back out to the sea and started surfing east to Ever Grande City and Victory Road.
After scaling the Waterfall with JollyRoger, I entered Victory Road.
Navigated it as quickly as I could remember the routes, and then it was time to beat Wally, who has a decent team now.

http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/875/ultsolowally.png
He still was no match for Fireheart, as you can see.


Now it was time to fight the Elite Four. Fireheart and I had been on a long journey, and we would finish the way we started - alone.
I deposited my HM slaves in the box, and Fireheart and I were on the final leg of our journey in Hoenn!

First up was Sidney and his Dark-types.

http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/9454/ultsolosidney.png
Flamethrower took care of every single one. With two grass types and a Sharpedo with low SpD, he was a piece of cake.


Phoebe and her Ghost team was next.

http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/7494/ultsolopheobe.png
Nothing difficult here. Fireheart is really overleveled and Bite is super effective against ghosts. She also only has ghosts from Hoenn, no Gengar to deal with here.


Glacia was next with her Ice types.

http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/9689/ultsologlacia.png
She was the bane of Fireheart in the Elite Four here. Walrein was able to kill Fireheart twice with Surf as Fireheart was unable to 2HKO Walrein with anything. Finally got critical hits on both the Sealeo with Return so they were unable to set up Hail, and with the help of a Sitrus Berry, Fireheart survived 2 Surfs to take Walrein down. Both the Glalie were Flamethrower'd.


Drake and his Dragons were next.

http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/205/ultsolodrake.png
He was a lot easier than Lance ever was. His team only has Hoenn dragons, and only one base 600, Salamance, so he went down with a splat. Kind of anticlimactic, if you ask me, considering what Lance was like in Kanto.


After a Full Restore and an Elixir, the Champion Steven was the last opponent in Hoenn to beat!

http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/6816/ultsolosteven.png
Well, he was easy - weak to fire, so Flamethrower destroyed his Steel-types. Fireheart almost died to Cradily and Armaldo both using AncientPower, but he survived and 2HKOed them both with Flamethrower. The Sitrus Berry helped again. Fireheart grew to L71 on Steven's final Pokemon, Armaldo.


Hoenn was won! Fireheart was then inducted into the Hall of Fame.


Some ending screenshots - Final stats of Fireheart and also my Trainer Card:

So I'm really interested in challenging on HG/SS with a Gallade. I'll start with a ralts though. (Since I have no way of obtaining a perfect one through trade I will be using hacks to get it on the first route.) Can I make it shiny, though (also through hacks)? I like the blue color more
Edit: I will be playing this on my DS with the use of a flashcart so no pictures:/
And HM Slaves will be Corsola - HM's 3,4,5,6 Tropius - HM's 1 and 2 and Golduck - HM's 7 and 8
Also obtained through hacks, Basically hacking for essentials to play the game solo. Everything else will be legit.

Just come back here for some reading (and to see if my completion of the Kabutops run has been updated, which it hasnt :( ). Anyway would just like to say welcome back to Wingman who I though was gone for good, wish you luck on completing the Nidoking challnge. Also Myrhh said awhile back that black and white solos would be incorporated into this thread so go have fun with soloing that :).

Anyway this part will seem mean but The : D, IMO your run shouldn't be counted as you have broken the rule of no cheating, The shiny cheat used I don't really consider rulebreaking(although it is annoying) but the rare candy cheats and lvl mod cheats(zigzagoon) really annoy me. Your excuse for the rare candy cheat on beldum is BS tbh, both me and Wingman where able to train beldum to a high enough level to be able to beat the first rock gym in all but Johto region(as falkner is the first gym leader).

Personally if I was the thread owner I would tell you to do this run agian without cheats but I'm not the thread owner so it's up to him(if he returns)

Day 1~
Weird things have been happening lately...

I had a dream that this guy, Professor Oak was his name, was talking to me. He was asking extremely stupid questions, like are you a boy or a girl. I'm right there in front of you Oak!

Anyway, I woke up to be asked a million questions from my mom, who then told me the town professor, Professor Elm, was looking for me. I decided to head over there when mom gave me back my “essentials for being a Pokémon trainer” that I gave to her.

I walked outside and was met by Lyra. She said absolutely nothing and walked off. I thought nothing of it and went to the lab to see some strange red-headed boy standing outside. When I walked up to him, he pushed me away with a disgusted look on his face.

I walked inside the lab and Professor Elm offered me a Pokémon. I chose Cyndaquil because it is definitely awesome. But, something just wasn’t right about it. I told him thanks and left. I got to the door when one of his aides was generous enough to give me five potions. I stepped outside and turned towards the first route, Route 29. As soon as I stepped out of the natural boundary of our town, something extremely weird happened. A cherish ball fell out of the sky. Then I looked at the sky and it turned ominous. Rain clouds filled the area and made it extremely dark. I picked up the ball and looked towards the grass, thinking it was calling me.

I stepped into the grass and then out came a Ralts. Kinda weird because there are no Ralts here at all… It was no ordinary Ralts, though. It was shiny. It had a blue head and I could feel it sensing my emotions. It was moving extremely fast, trying to get away, but I sent Cyndaquil after it to take it down. As soon as Cyndaquil had it cornered, I threw the Cherish Ball at it and I caught it! My first Wild Pokémon and it was shiny! Granted all it knew how to do was growl, but hey, it’s shiny!

I ventured to CherryGrove city. Some extremely hyper old-man decided to show me around town. When he finished his rant, he gave me a pair of running-shoes. How nice. Because I couldn’t run in the sneakers my mom bought me form Goldenrod? Apparently not. I took off the shoes mom bought me and put on the one’s this guy gave me. I got a random burst of energy to go running so I ran around town many times. The burst of energy was like caffeine so I became tired really quickly. So I’m staying at the Pokémon Center. I’m documenting my journey in this journal that I found in my PokéGear. I guess this is the start of a long Journey…



Edit: Here's my second one, it's pretty long.
Team:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/280d.png Lv: 16
Nature: Quiet
Moves: Growl, Confusion, Double Team, Teleport

Day 2~

I will call him Allegro and he will be mine. Love that movie.
Now onto my second day. I trained Ralts, or Allegro, through Cyndaquil because all Allegro knew how to do was growl. Not too long after, Allegro learned confusion and it was great. We were confusing Pokémon left and right, takin ‘em down. They was like: Hide yo Pidgeys and Hide yo Sentrets. No not really. But you get the picture.

I think I figured out what was wrong with the Cyndaquil. It just didn’t fit me. I reluctantly put in Someone’s PC at the Pokémon center. I figured it would just be me and Allegro, taking over the world. Cyndaquil would have to sit it.

I left CherryGrove for Mr. Pokémon’s house. I was curious as to who he was. Was he really a Pokémon that was extremely educated? Like a Mewtwo or something? I passed a house with an apricorn tree outside of it when some random guy was like: “Hey! You want apricots? Here, Apricot Box!” He sounded a little perturbed that I didn’t stop at his house, but oh well. I passed his house and two “youngsters” we’re battling their pokémon

I went to Mr. Pokémon’s house, which was further up route 30. I walked inside (because I felt too beast to knock) and there he was. A regular person. Mr. Pokémon. What a let down. But, get this, he was talking with Professor Oak! I know, right? Epic! Mr. Pokémon went to go get whatever he was supposed to give to Professor Elm and Professor Oak decided it was time for him to go. However, before Professor Oak left, he had a little chat with me. We talked about Pokémon and then handed me a Pokédex! It was Awesome! I felt like an Arceus then! He told me it was his dream to catch all the Pokémon and he asked me to complete that dream for him. Maybe, just maybe.

He left after Mr. Pokémon found what he wanted to give to Professor Elm. It was an egg. It was really strange and kinda small. It had red and blue triangles all over it. I told him I would deliver it ASAP and left. As soon as I stepped outside I got a call from Professor Elm. He sounded frantic and told me to get to his lab right now, and then hung up. I ran back to CherryGrove city, stopping at the Pokémon Center to heal Allegro. I just got out of CherryGrove city when the redheaded kid outside of the lab approached me. He said the Pokémon given to me was a waste on a wimp like me. Yeah it was a waste, but I’m not a wimp!!! He decided to battle me with a Totodile and I kicked his ass. The crybaby. His Totodile seemed a little off-though. He ran off in silence and left his trainer card on the ground. I picked it up and read it. His name is Syriix. I read it over and over to keep it my memory when I beat him again. He came back and snatched it from me before he left completely.

I ran to the professor’s lab and saw a police man in there talking to Professor Elm. He said rule number one about a crime is that the criminal will always return to the scene of the crime. He thought it was me because I was the first one to show up after him. The nerve! Just then Lyra ran in and defended me because the Professor was soo reluctant to. The police told me to prove it so I told him the name of the guy who I battled, just to get back at him. He said okay, innocent until proven guilty, now on his trail! The policeman then left, followed by Lyra. I asked the professor when happened and he told me a Totodile was stolen. I was right! It was Syriix! The professor asked me what Mr. Pokémon gave me and I showed him the egg. He literally jumped back in astonishment. He told me thanks and took the egg. He turned around to his computer and told me to see my mom before I leave.

I left the lab, completely forgetting to say bye to mom. I headed to route 29 when Lyra decided to be a bimbo and show me how to capture. I’ve already captured a Shiny Ralts, smart-one! I payed no attention and hurried past CherryGrove city. When I went up route 30 The “youngsters were done and the one named Joey approached me with his Rattata. He was so arrogant and I wiped the floor with him. He was really angry, but asked me for my pokégear number, I reluctantly gave it to him. I went further up the route when my mom called, crying. She was really upset that I forgot to say bye, I felt horrible! But then she offered to save my money and I was happy to agree, this way she can still be a part of the adventure.

I made it to Violet city and Lyra somehow ended up behind me. She did her girl rant about it then gave me a Vs. Recorder. I am just on a roll with these gifts. She then ran ahead of me, to beat me in some race she designed. I then headed to the bell tower, curious of what it was. I went in and up the tower, stopped by sages who decided to test my bond with Allegro. Man, me and Allegro are best buds till the end. I caught him in a Cherish Ball, man! I made it to the top of tower and guess who was there? It was Syriix battling the Elder of the tower. He was battling out of anger, probably because I beat him earlier. When he beat the Elder, the Elder told him that he should treat his Pokémon nicely. He said whatever and escaped on an escape rope. I talked to the Elder who was magically ready to battle again. I decided to impress him with my kindness. He applauded me when I beat him then gave me the TM Flash. I told him thanks then used one of his escape ropes to get out.

I left to Pokémon Center to heal Allegro before I challenged the gym. I entered the Violet City Gym and there was a pad in front of me. I asked the stalkerish guy what to do and he said to stand on the panel. I did and BOOM!!! I flew up to the top of the gym! It was some gym set up at the top of this skyscraper that looks so small from the outside. I’m deathly afraid of heights. I took out Allegro and told him to just take out any Pokémon that challenged him because I wasn’t feeling too well. He beat the trainers that made fun of me because I was getting sick up top. Then we went to Falkner. Falkner laughed at me and then beat up Allegro. It was too much for me to handle, so I threw up and passed out.

I woke up at the Pokémon Center and nurse joy handed my Allegro, telling me to get some potions if I go on long journeys. I had a new feeling in me. It was anger. I was angry at Falkner for that and went in with a new mindset. Heights are for babies, and I take candy from babies. I challenged Falkner and beat him extremely bad this time. He gave me the TM Roost and told me my next challenge would be at Azalea Town. I decided, that’s where I should go. When I got outside, Professor Elm called and told me to walk with the egg Mr. Pokémon gave me. He said his Aide at the pokémart should have it, so I went to retrieve it. I then left Violet city, down route 32. There was this random guy that handed me a miracle seed. I told him thanks and continued down the route. Besides a few Pokémon trainers, there were like 10 fisherman, all on this bridge. I beat all of them and finished the route.

There was suspicious looking fellow who offered me a slowpoke tail for 1 million dollars. Wait. What? 1 million Dollars? He’s crazy. I disregarded him and went to this Pokémon Center that was placed there randomly next to Union Cave. I’ve decided to rest there tonight before I head out. Remember, Hide yo Pokemanz…

Sign me up for SoulSilver with Shuppet/Banette. I know I didn't complete my Absol run in FireRed and I probably won't either, since ROMs aren't being very nice to me right now. Anyway, I'm going to hack in a Shuppet at the first opportunity I get and I'll start tonight but probably update tomorrow at the latest.

Just come back here for some reading (and to see if my completion of the Kabutops run has been updated, which it hasnt :( ). Anyway would just like to say welcome back to Wingman who I though was gone for good, wish you luck on completing the Nidoking challnge. Also Myrhh said awhile back that black and white solos would be incorporated into this thread so go have fun with soloing that :).

Anyway this part will seem mean but The : D, IMO your run shouldn't be counted as you have broken the rule of no cheating, The shiny cheat used I don't really consider rulebreaking(although it is annoying) but the rare candy cheats and lvl mod cheats(zigzagoon) really annoy me. Your excuse for the rare candy cheat on beldum is BS tbh, both me and Wingman where able to train beldum to a high enough level to be able to beat the first rock gym in all but Johto region(as falkner is the first gym leader).

Personally if I was the thread owner I would tell you to do this run agian without cheats but I'm not the thread owner so it's up to him(if he returns)

I'm not gone yet. You can't be rid of me that easily. ;P And the reason it hasn't been updated is because Myrrhman hasn't been very active as of late. I'd say give it time; he'll remember us sometime. Also, congratulations on completing the second Ultimate Solo Challenge. I never got the chance before. Heck, I didn't even know you finished until now. Good job!

Also, I agree with you about The : D. The both of us ran through with no cheats FOUR TIMES with a Beldum. Honestly, I was outraged when I saw the post stating that he cheated his way to level 15. I even think that it was stated in the first post that the use of cheats is illegal past hacking in the Pokémon that you want to use. It should be only fair that The : D be forced to do redo the challenge with no cheats or take down his posts.

But anyways. Onto the important stuff.

Day 33

God dammit. I am seriously getting tired of these constant rules and regulations of each region and all the yadda yadda that we've been forced to sit through. I know it's to keep everything fair and all, but it gets annoying. Especially since I've already been through this all once before.

But at this point it's all just useless ranting.

If you haven't guessed, I'm stuck back as a Nidoran♂. Again. Which I've strangely grown to hate. I lived most of my life as a Nidoran♂, and I was content. But as soon as I evolved and got used to being a Nidoking, I realize how much being a Nidoran♂ sucks. I'm hoping I won't have to do this again. In fact, if I go through all this one more time, I'm gonna go nuts.

Enough of my pointless rant.

The ship left this morning bright and early, and as soon as we shoved off I couldn't even stand. Ships are no way for a Nidoking to travel. I'd almost rather be swimming. And having nothing to look at other than the endless ocean did not assist in making me feel any better. I ended up lying face down next to Caroline and Wingman, who were somehow entirely unaffected.

A few times I felt my stomach rushing up to greet my mouth, only returning to its rightful place when my tongue forced it back. But it was persistent. Finally my tongue got tired of holding it back. I remember rushing to the edge of the boat as my tongue threw my stomach and its contents overboard. After that, I just fell on my back in a daze. I don't think I moved again until we hit ground in Hoenn.

And to make things worse, we get pulled aside right as we step off the ship. Now I'm back to square one and it sucks. But somehow Wingman was all smiles. I still do not understand what makes him able to look past all this crap. Maybe he's just naive. I envy him for that. Though I'm pretty sure I've already said that before.

The rest of the day was full of the two Ts; training and traveling. But we made some serious ground. We arrived in a town called Petalburg or something, and there was a Gym, but it was closed. The Gym was in the process of changing leaders, and the new one hadn't moved in yet. So we headed north towards Rustboro City.

Getting there was fairly easy; the only obstacle in our way was the Petalburg Woods, and they were in no way a challenge to navigate. I don't remember doing much in there other than saving this one guy from a dude who kept talking about "Team Magma" or whatever. Other than that hiccup, we passed through Petalburg Woods with no trouble.

Rustboro City was not far away, and the first thing Wingman wanted to do was hit the Gym. Which was, unfortunately, of the Rock type profession. I don't remember much of what happened in there, other than us winning. I was knocked over the head by a large rock, according to Caroline, and hit with a bit of memory loss. That's why this entry is a little bare. I apologize, but it's not really my fault, it's that stupid Nosepass's fault. Critical hit Rock Tomb my ass.

After the hazy success at the Gym, we set up at the PokéCenter for the night. Personally, I prefer camping out, but I needed to stay there a little to make sure that the hit to the head didn't do any damage to my brain. I feel fine, to tell the truth, but the nurse wasn't so sure. So Wingman and Caroline promised to stay a while so that they could check up on me in the morning.

Wow, looking at this log makes me feel a little stupid. I really am sorry for not being able to remember all of that, it feels like everything that happened today took place a couple of months ago. (*cough cough it really did happen in July cough and I can't remember any of it cough*) I'll make sure to write a better log for tomorrow.

Oh, and before I go, I wanna say one more thing. Writing without fingers is a pain. I hope I get to evolve soon.

And about the Black solo run, it will happen. I just need to figure out how to cheat in a Mogurew.

I'm not gone yet. You can't be rid of me that easily. ;P And the reason it hasn't been updated is because Myrrhman hasn't been very active as of late. I'd say give it time; he'll remember us sometime. Also, congratulations on completing the second Ultimate Solo Challenge. I never got the chance before. Heck, I didn't even know you finished until now. Good job!

Also, I agree with you about The : D. The both of us ran through with no cheats FOUR TIMES with a Beldum. Honestly, I was outraged when I saw the post stating that he cheated his way to level 15. I even think that it was stated in the first post that the use of cheats is illegal past hacking in the Pokémon that you want to use. It should be only fair that The : D be forced to do redo the challenge with no cheats or take down his posts.

But anyways. Onto the important stuff.

Day 33

God dammit. I am seriously getting tired of these constant rules and regulations of each region and all the yadda yadda that we've been forced to sit through. I know it's to keep everything fair and all, but it gets annoying. Especially since I've already been through this all once before.

But at this point it's all just useless ranting.

If you haven't guessed, I'm stuck back as a Nidoran♂. Again. Which I've strangely grown to hate. I lived most of my life as a Nidoran♂, and I was content. But as soon as I evolved and got used to being a Nidoking, I realize how much being a Nidoran♂ sucks. I'm hoping I won't have to do this again. In fact, if I go through all this one more time, I'm gonna go nuts.

Enough of my pointless rant.

The ship left this morning bright and early, and as soon as we shoved off I couldn't even stand. Ships are no way for a Nidoking to travel. I'd almost rather be swimming. And having nothing to look at other than the endless ocean did not assist in making me feel any better. I ended up lying face down next to Caroline and Wingman, who were somehow entirely unaffected.

A few times I felt my stomach rushing up to greet my mouth, only returning to its rightful place when my tongue forced it back. But it was persistent. Finally my tongue got tired of holding it back. I remember rushing to the edge of the boat as my tongue threw my stomach and its contents overboard. After that, I just fell on my back in a daze. I don't think I moved again until we hit ground in Hoenn.

And to make things worse, we get pulled aside right as we step off the ship. Now I'm back to square one and it sucks. But somehow Wingman was all smiles. I still do not understand what makes him able to look past all this crap. Maybe he's just naive. I envy him for that. Though I'm pretty sure I've already said that before.

The rest of the day was full of the two Ts; training and traveling. But we made some serious ground. We arrived in a town called Petalburg or something, and there was a Gym, but it was closed. The Gym was in the process of changing leaders, and the new one hadn't moved in yet. So we headed north towards Rustboro City.

Getting there was fairly easy; the only obstacle in our way was the Petalburg Woods, and they were in no way a challenge to navigate. I don't remember doing much in there other than saving this one guy from a dude who kept talking about "Team Magma" or whatever. Other than that hiccup, we passed through Petalburg Woods with no trouble.

okay, fine... I guess you guys make sense.

this is what I've decided:

scratch the whole emerald solo run. it doesn't exist. I will delete it, too.

this is my new solo challenge, and it's much more epic.

what I will do is I will go through with the WHOLE thing.

LeafGreen (kanto) --> HeartGold (johto - as soon as I can find a working ROM) --> Emerald (hoenn) --> Platinum (sinnoh)

at the beginning of each game, I will name myself ARTEM (cuz that's my name...), and my rival BLUE, SILVER, and KLAUS, for KANTO, JOHTO, and SINNOH. obviously, you can't name May.

and also, I will hack in a low-level shiny beldum (because shiny looks so sick), and due to protests, I will do no further hacks.

Much better. And having a shiny Pokémon is just fine. I think both stargate and I started at Level 5, so that should be the best level to hack in. Good luck!

So, I started my Solo run with Shuppet/Banette last night. I began with the intro stuff, then once I obtained the PokeBalls from Ethan, I hacked in a level 5 Shuppet, who I named Dusk. We took on the gym in Violet City and beat Falkner thanks to Dusk's Curse and a little bit of luck. After looking at the Ruins of Alph and finishing grabbing some items, we headed to Azalea Town for our next badge. After running through Union Cave while battling trainers and grabbing items on the way, we made it to Azalea Town. We helped out Kurt and beat Team Rocket easily with Dusk being at least 8 levels higher than Proton's strongest Pokemon. We healed and headed over to beat Bugsy, who was pretty easy again and Dusk swept the gym with no problems. Once we beat the gym, we met our rival Silver for another battle. It was easy, again, and the only small problem we had was his Bayleef.

If you're looking for a translation patch you should definitely go here. (http://projectpokemon.org/forums/showthread.php?11746-Pokmon-Black-and-White-Translation-Project-v3-(First-3-posts-are-constantly-updated)) They are constantly updating and are at least 90% done with all the translations.

You used eggs? Dang. I found a NDS ROM hacking tool and changed the starters for mine. XD

Also, update on Black Solo Run. (In spoilers just in case people don't wanna know the events yet)

-Got starter (Tsutarja, only for cut) and quickly caught a Mogurew
-Nicknamed him Razor (real creative, huh? You try nicknaming creatively with only five letters allowed.)
-Got to Karakusa Town
-Met up with Team Plasma and Trainer N for the first time
-Battled and beat N handily
-Beat Belle.
-Arrived in Sanyou City
-Battled and beat Cheren.
-Took on the Gym.
-Faced Pon, narrowly won.
-Saved in the Dream Ruins.
So that's one badge, and it's already clear that I need lots of training.

Also, I know it's not a story. You try translating all of the Japanese text. What I know is due to the current stage of translation of a patch I'm using and Serebii/Marriland.

After besting Silver, we started to make our way to Goldenrod City by way of the Ilex Forest. We made our way through Ilex Forest without much trouble then took on the trainers on Route 34. Once we made it to Goldenrod City and after finishing all the mini-quests, we took on the Goldenrod Gym. The trainers were easy but Whitney was very frustrating. Her Clefairy wasn't difficult at all but her Miltank gave me some trouble. Thanks to Attract and flinch hax, the battle was basically a stall war until Dusk was able to get a Will-O-Wisp off and eventually bring it down. Once we obtained the Plain badge, I set the clock forward to get the TM Return from the Department Store then we set off for Ecruteak City by way of Route 35, 36, and 37.

When we arrived at Ecruteak, we healed up and then made our way to the Dance Theater, where we saved another Kimono Girl, but this time from a Team Rocket Grunt. After that, we went to the Burned Tower, where we beat our rival again with ease, met Morty and Eusine, and set free the three roaming legendaries. We then headed to the Gym for our 4th badge and won it pretty easily, thanks to a type advantage but at the same time, not really. After beating Morty and heading back to a Pokemon Center, we headed for the next city on our list, Olivine City. We battled trainers on Routes 38 and 39 and Dusk finally evolved into a Banette! He's so much stronger now and I'm pretty confident we can take on anything. Also, we found a Shiny Leaf right before getting to Olivine City too!

EDIT: We finished the Lighthouse and just beat Chuck and Jasmine. Chuck went down fairly easily and Jasmine finally went down thanks to a double knockout. We are now headed to the Safari Zone to get the trainers and items there then back to Ecruteak to head on to Mahogany Town. At Mahogany, we stopped Team Rocket easily then faced Pryce, who also went down without a fight. We are now on our way to Goldenrod to stop Team Rocket once and for all!

Time for a long update! We literally just beat the Elite Four and became Champion but I'll start off where we left off with my team beating Team Rocket at Goldenrod City. After we crushed Silver again and disbanded Team Rocket, we headed for our final badge in Blackthorn City. At this point Dusk was OHKOing pretty much everything in his path, including Clair and her team and any other trainers we faced. After obtaining our final badge, we headed home to New Bark Town to see Professor Elm. Then, we made our way to see the Kimono Girls and face Lugia, who Dusk defeated pretty easily. Once that was over, we headed for Victory Road and all the while, beating any trainer we came across. By the time we got to the Indigo Plateau and beat Silver for the final time, Dusk was in the middle 60s and still beating everything in sight.

After stocking up, we then took on the Elite Four on our own. Will went down without a fight thanks to Faint Attack and Shadow Claw. Koga was also easy as well, despite his Forretress spamming Protect the entire match. Bruno was easy thanks to an X-Attack boost and Karen was surprisingly easy, as her Houndoom went down with one Return. Lance was an entire different story though and thankfully I saved before his match 'cause I restarted twice before finding the right combination of items and beating him to earn my spot as Champion of the Johto League!

No update in a while cause Thanksgiving has been keeping me busy. (Plus every time I tried to update, the server was too busy, and I tried about four different times.) But here we go.

-Saved Munna from Team Plasma
-Got the C-Gear (useless due to ROM use, but pretty cool still)
-Beat Cheren
-Rescued a stolen Pokémon from Plasma
-Got to Shippou City
-Entered Museum/Gym
-Battled and beat Aloe with some difficulty
-Saw Plasma steal the dragon skull (I have no clue why, it has nothing to do with liberating Pokémon)
-Met Arti and went to Yaguruma Forest
-Stopped Plasma and retrieved the skull
-Crossed Sky Arrow Bridge (awesome graphics for a DS game, may I say)
-Arrived in Hiun City
-Had another run in with Plasma who stole Belle's Munna
-Rescued Munna
-Razor evolved into Doryuuzu ('bout time)
-Entered Hiun Gym
-Took it down easily with Rock Slide
-Battled and beat both Belle and Cheren
-Currently in Route 4 desert area and heading to Raimon City
So now I'm at three badges and I've already encountered Team Plasma a total of 5 times. Very interesting so far.

By the way...
I'll do an Ultimate Solo Run.
The games will be Leaf Green, Soul Silver, Sapphire, Pearl, and White.

Long update time! I just beat Red so the challenge is finally over for me and my Banette, Dusk! I'll give you a basic summary of what happened since I last updated, which was when I beat the Elite Four the first time around.

User Name: MareBear
Trainer: Mary
Game: SoulSilver
Pokemon: Shuppet / Banette
Time on Game: 22:56

Badge Case:
http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r275/Eragonfan07/Badges.png
http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r275/Eragonfan07/Badges2-1.png

After besting the Elite Four, Dusk and I made quick work of all of the Kanto Gym Leaders, pretty much knocking them out with no trouble whatsoever. We explored Kanto along the way and after beating pretty much every trainer, gym leader, and our rival Silver, Dusk was approximately level 95 after beating Blue. Eventually, Dusk made it to level 100, giving me my first Pokemon EVER that reached level 100 for me so this was kind of a special challenge for me. Anyway, I had already decided to re-challenge the Elite Four after getting all 16 badges and they definitely are a lot tougher than I thought they would be, especially Lance. I'm pretty sure I had to reset at least 7 times before getting a few lucky Critical Hits to finish him off.

After being crowned Champion again, I headed for Mt. Silver to face Red and the end of the challenge. Once we finished exploring the caves for items, we made it to the peak, where Red was waiting for me and Dusk. It wasn't a terribly tense battle, since I had my three HM Slaves as Revive Slaves, but it was intense nonetheless. I only had one super effective move against his team but Dusk managed to stay tough and win the battle after only fainting twice. Once the credits began to roll, I knew my challenge was complete.

All in all, this was an extremely fun challenge for me. I had a great time with this and I got my first level 100 Pokemon out of it too! At first, I wasn't so sure Dusk could handle the Elite Four and Red but he did and he definitely deserves a long retirement when I trade him over to my HeartGold file. I'm just going to finish a few things before moving him over but make sure you mark me down for finishing this. Thanks and good luck to everyone else! =]

And here comes another update on my Black Solo Run!

-Explored Route 4 and the Resort Desert
-Arrived in Raimon City, where I ran into Prof A. and Cheren
-Beat out some Plasma Grunts who were bullying an old dude and got a bike out of it
-Checked out the Battle Subway
-Rode to some town way north and got some items
-Met up with Belle and looked into the Pokémon Musical Hall
-Dressed up Razor like a gentleman (I didn't really have a choice in the matter, anyways.)
-Saw an argument between Belle and her dad that the Gym Leader, Kamitsure, settled
-Headed to the Gym, but ran into N
-BIG AND POTENTIALLY GAME-RUINING SPOILER: Found that N was the "Leader Guy" of Team Plasma (called himself the "Plasma King")
-Battled N and beat him
-Went to Gym and rode some roller coasters to the Leader
-Battled and beat her easily (Electric types can't do sh** against Razor)
-Headed west and ran into Cheren
-Battled him and won easily
-Met the Isshu/Unova Region Champ, Adeku
-Crossed the Hodomoe Drawbridge and reached Hodomoe City
-Met the Gym Leader, Yakon, complaining about Plasma Grunts hiding in the Freezer Container
-Went there, saw that they were protecting another sage, and beat them all out, then watched Yakon arrest them
-Headed to Gym and saw Geechisu make a deal with Yakon to stay out of the city in return for the Sage
-Entered Gym and got to Yakon
-Beat the snot out of him
-Left westward bound
-Got to Thunderstone Cave
-Ran into N and his 'Dark Trinity'
-Currently following N through the caverns
So another two badges and another 4 Team Plasma encounters. Actually, there's also two more that happened earlier due to *mumbles under breath about spoiler*. ;P

I will post a full update when I have played a bit more over the next hour or two, but before that, I was asked a question:
@Lord_Storm Just out of interest, what type is Blast's Hidden Power?

The answer Rainbow Sasuke is Ghost type, it came in very useful against some of those pesky rock types early on.

Decided to do an easy one to start off with, Charizard in Red. I will be hacking in a Mew for being a HM slave, and he will never be used in combat. I will be running on an emulator and using a lot of speed-up.

Named myself Adde, and my rival Jeppe (my own name and a good friends name, we usually name our rivals after eachother).

Didnt give Charmander a nickname and beat the rivals squirtle no probs.

Speeding through Viridian forest got Charmander to level 11 and he came out with 1 HP and no PP left on scratch.

Reached Pewter City (gametime 00:28)

Beat brock after a few resets (keep getting one-shotted by Bide)

Route east of Pewter, Charmander evolved into a Charmeleon.

Reached Cerulean City (Gametime 1:07)

Beat the trainers in the Cerulean Gym but saved misty for later as she usually slaugthers my charmeleon.

Beat nugget Bridge, level 24.

Tried to beat misty and failed miserably, moving on to Vermillion and taking Misty later.

Defeated the Rocket and learned Charmeleon Dig.

Reached Vermillion City (Gametime 2:19).

Continuing a little bit later, updating when I do.

Cohacq
December 4th, 2010, 12:33 PM
Continuing from Vermillion City

Defeated SS. Anne and Rival without any trouble (Dig OHKO'd his whole team except Pidgeotto

Obliterated Surge's gym with Dig. I'm really starting to like that move.

Backtracking to Cerulean for Rock Tunnel and Misty.

One-shotted both of Misty's pokemon without a hitch.

Charmeleon evolved into Charizard on the route West of Cerulean.

Got through Rock Tunnel and arrived in Lavender Town (gametime 6:02)

As there was nothing to do here, I continued on to Celadon.

Arrived in Celadon City (Gametime 6:27)

Obtained a Poké Doll and a Lemonade from the Mart.

Slaughtered the Celadon Gym with Ember.

Picked up Fly.

Took the cycling road down to Fuschia.

Defeated Koga after a few resets as I didnt go back to the Pokécenter to heal.


Saved and quit at the Safari Zone Gate.

Safari Zone done quick, got the teeth and HM03.

Silph Co. Cleared (gametime 9:31)

Backtracked to Fuschia.

Arrived on Cinnabar Island. (09:55)

OHKO'd the fire gym.

Arrived in Viridian City (gametime 10:35)

Noticed i've forgot to beat Sabrina, so I'm gonna have to backtrack, but i'll do that later.

Pokémon – The only game where a 10-year old can freely roam an entire country with 6 animals, a backpack, and a dream.

Things don’t add up but it doesn’t matter.
This’ll be quick because I’m just letting Allegro rest up while I have time to write.

So I made it through Union cave. I realized when I got out that it UNIFIED Route 32 and Azalea town. Hence UNION Cave. How smart of me. I beat some random Hiker that wasn’t going hiking and saw this strange guy in a black suit arguing with a middle-aged man. I heard the guy in black say he was restoring Team Rocket. Who’s that? Team Rocket? He shoved the middle aged man away and went to guard a well. Was he depriving the Town of water?

I went to Kurt the Pokéball maker’s house when he ran out on me screaming: “DOWN WITH TEAM ROCKET!!!” What a strange old man. I ran after him to see the guy guarding the well beat up and laying on the ground. Apparently this whole Team Rocket thing isn’t that smart enough to use Pokémon to stop an old man. I went down the well and found out it led to another cave. This well was known as Slowpoke Well because it houses Slowpokes. Team Rocket was trying to take Slowpoke tails, probably to give em to that guy to sell for 1 million dollars. It doesn’t work. I beat everyone in the cave and then the admin in charge of the operations. He said that Giovanni would come back and accept them as the best Team Rocket’s ever known. Who’s Giovanni? Oh well.

Kurt and I left the cave and he gave me fast ball. Pretty cool. I gave him to green apricots for some Pokéballs and left after his granddaughter (?) gave me his phone number. Yay…. I went to the Azalea gym where you have to ride spiders. I’m deathly afraid of spiders. I don’t know why I just am. When the first guy challenged me to a battle, I threw up on him and made him give up. I don’t know what’s with my easily aggravated stomach but it’s helping me a little. I advanced further through the gym and the two girls wouldn’t battle me because it was just me an Allegro. How nice, pansies…. I made it to Bugsy and his Scyther gave me a rough time. I kept movin on and eventually beat him for the Hive Badge (insert Badge Get! Music). He gave me the TM U-turn before I left.

I went to the exit of Azalea town to be met by Syriix, my rival. He kept talking about how wimps shouldn’t have Pokémon and how he would beat me. His Ghastly tried to put a curse on Allegro but failed. His Croconaw’s bite was worse than it’s bark and stopped me a little. Allegro was killin it with Critical hits and beat him. Allegro learned Magical Leaf (LVL 21 Ralts) and then evolved into a Kirlia. Syriix, bewildered, ran off and dropped a Dawn Stone. How useful. I told Allegro to pick it up and when he did, he evolved into a Gallade! I was soooo extremely happy at this point and danced into Azalea forest. This guy in there stopped me and asked me to catch his Farfetch’d because he couldn’t do it [was lazy]. I went and got them then brought them back to him for the HM Cut. I told him thanks and turned around…. To a giant Tropius just mindin it’s own business. I had Allegro sneak up on it and hold it so I could catch it. I did and taught it cut so I could cut this tree in front of me.

I progressed through the rest of the forest to find a kimono girl. She was lost so I led her out of the forest. She left after saying thank you. It’s here that I stop writing because Allegro’s all rested up. No matter what, I will be the very best, like NO ONE ever was.

-Climbed the Tower of Heaven, met with the Gym Leader, and rang a bell
-Returned to the Gym and beat Fuuro, receiving the Jet Badge
-Traveled through Mt. Helix, battling Cheren before entering

-Spoilers, spoilers, important storyline stuff, things that might ruin the game to those who haven't played it...
-Crossed Cylinder Bridge and got to Souryuu City
-More storyline spoilers...
-Battled and beat Gym Leader Shaga
-Headed through Route 10 and battled Cheren again, winning all too easily
-Proceeded through the Badge Check Gates (The Jet Badge Room is freakin' AWESOME!)
-Arrived at Victory Road
And that's where I'm leaving off for now. My next update should be my last. ;P

Just start, the list hasn't been updated in forever

So be it.

Heart Gold:
The first leg of this journey was breeding my pokemon. I bred an Adamant Ariados holding an everstone with a female Drapion. I grabbed the egg and rode my bike around until the egg was about to hatch, then I traded it to my Diamond character.

Diamond:
I named my character JHawk and named my rival Squid. Together we went to the lake, got jumped by some tiny birds, grabbed a Turtwig and fought the off. Went to return Turtwig but was forced to keep him, I couldn't even say no to his Pokedex challenge, how rude. Oh well, May taught me how to catch a pokeman, so I caught a Starly and traded it for my egg. Ran around for a min then hatched my Skorupi. Named her Eve and leveled her up to level 6. Then I released Turtwig because he was useless now.

Battled through the first few routes, got the Poke'tch, destroyed Squid due to a critical hit and flinch hax. Battled to Oreburgh. Struggled in the mines. Grinded to level 14. Attempted the first gym and got smashed -_-.

Current Status: Grinding up to a level where I can withstand a few Rock Throws.....

Current Team:
Eve the Skorupi
Level 14
Adamant Natured
Item: Quick Claw
Ability: Battle Armor
Attack: 23 Defense 31: Sp. Attack: 11 Sp. Defense: 24 Speed: 24
Movset: Bite, Poison Sting, Leer, Pin Missile

Edit: Last night I grinded Eve the Skorupi up to level 17 until she learned Acupressure. That move helped out emmensily agaisnt Rowark. I barley managed to hold out agaisnt his Craniados, but Eve's big defense sure paid off. So now I have one badge.

So Eve and I continued back to Jubilife City. Stuffed some Grunts with Dawn (I think I called her May last post -_-). Headed up Route 204 pwning anyone that challenged me. Made it to the hippy flower town.

Headed towards the Valley Windworks, stuffed another grunt, who was actually pretty smart and locked the door once he realized he couldn't beat me.

Headed back to the hippy town, beat the crap out of two other grunts who just so happened to leave the key I was looking for behind, and some old fart gave me a bunch of honey.

Went back to the Valley Windworks, unlocked the door, and HOLY COW the smart grunt did something smart again, went ahead to warn the others of my presence. Why can't all grunts actually be that smart. Well the leader was actually a little bit of a challenge, her Purugly managed to get a critical hit on me, but I still pulled off a win.

Headed up towards Eterna Forest and smashed all the trainers on that route.

Hey everybody. Just found this site and signed up because these look really fun. I've already beaten Fire Red normally and again for fun with a full team of Electrodes using Self-Destruct. It. Was. Awesome.

Anyway I've never done a Solo run so I'll give this a shot.


I've already gotten my Tauros directly after I got my starter. I'll update after the next gym battle.

Perfect timing! I'll put you in with everyone else for the past like 10 pages. *Sigh, why did I let it get this bad?*

EDIT: AND EVERYTHING IS UPDATED!!! I put everyone on the challengers list if you applied in the past month, or if you applied earlier and have documented progress in the past month. I updated the champion list through the last time it was updated.

IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ANYTHING: I'm not perfect, and could have missed something. If you beat something and didn't get credit for it, or if you signed up last week and weren't added, PM me and I'll fix it for you.

Thanks for sticking to this challenge in my absence, guys. I really appreciate it.

Also, special congratulations goes to Lord Storm, who became the fifth person to finish the Ultimate Solo Challenge. He used a Venusaur.

Wow this beginning has started out rough. I used a code to encounter a tauros straight after I got Pokeballs, so I could have one at the beginning of the game. That proved to be a chore in itself. Managed to get his health down to a sliver and it still took ALL FIVE POKEBALLS. I was very lucky to get him on that last one or I would have had to buy more. But I got him, his name is...

ZEUS

We took off and fought every single enemy and trainer we found, since he was underleveled at the time it was dificult. After we made it to Pewter city I didn't want to wait, and neither did Zeus. At level 9 we took on Brock. I severely overestimated how much damage a normal attack does to rock. It took five potions and a LOT of repeated tackles but Oniz went down.

After that we went to Mt. Moon and that was also difficult. That place is crawling with Geodudes and we know how he does against rock-types. We fought every trainer and got every item in there, while gaining some levels and moves and a Paras names Mr. Slave on the way, but we finally made it out. We then arrived in Cerulean City.

It has been done. I am the first ever (official) Solo Challenge Champ on Pokémon Black! *happy dance*

And damn, it was a tough journey right there at the end. Here are the details(mostly - I'm still leaving out major game spoilers):

-Journeyed through Victory Road
-Arrived at the Pokémon League
-Healed, stocked up, saved, and entered the plaza
-Battled all four Elite Four members (side note: in Black/White, there is no forced order that you must challenge them in; they have the same number of Pokémon and the same level spread - three level 48, one level 50)
*Shikimi - Ghost Types: Fairly simple with Shadow Claw.
*Renbu - Fighting Types: Actually gave me a hard time; Fighting types are a pain to beat with a Steel type. Also, F*CKING STURDY.
*Giima - Dark Types: Brick Break, thankfully.
*Caitlin - Psychic Types: Yes, the Caitlin from the Battle Castle. Anyway, Shadow Claw once again.
-Headed to face Adeku, but major storyline spoilers took over. Let's just say that Team Plasma intervened.
-Spoilers, spoilers, GIANT STORYLINE MAKE SENSE MOMENT, and more spoilers
-Beat the game, but not the Elite Four. THIS ISN'T OVER YET.
-Flew back to the Pokémon League and took them on again
-HUGE LEVEL DIFFERENCE WHUT. They seriously jumped from level 48 to level 71. WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN.
*Shikimi - Shadow Claw was still the main tactic, but it took some luck (critical hit FTW).
*Renbu - HOLY POP TARTS IN A PENCIL SHARPENER, THIS FIGHT WAS LIKE MISSION FREAKING IMPOSSIBLE. I had to revive Razor so many times that it's not even funny. And again, F*CKING STURDY.
*Giima - No harder than the first time, surprisingly.
*Caitlin - A little tougher, but thank God for Steel's resistance to Psychic.
-And finally.... ADEKU!
*Champion Adeku - Very odd team, but most of the battle was won with Earthquake. And more luck.
And that makes me the new Champion of the Isshu Region! The strange part is that I've beaten the whole game and haven't even visited three cities. Time to explore for fun! ;D

So I finally started the last part of my USC with Fireheart, aka Arcanine (At least till B/W comes out in US). Doing the Sinnoh region on Diamond.

Named self Cyrus, rival Zane as usual. Picked Piplup, named her Penny.
After the initial plot stuff I hacked in a Growlithe on Rt. 202, which is where it can be found with a dongle.
Also caught a couple HM slaves - Wings (Starly) and Derf (Bidoof). Boxed Wings and Penny as they won't be needed till later.
Made my way to Jubilife City, where I got a Town Map, TM 10 Hidden Power, and a Poketch.
Going east, Fireheart had his first battle against Zane.

http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/1130/ultsolozane1.png
Starly and Turtwig were no match for Fireheart's Bite and Ember.


Arrived at Oreburgh City, getting Rock Smash along the way, which I taught to Derp.
Found Roark in the Mine, and then taught Hidden Power to Fireheart - AMAZING! HP GROUND FTW!!!
Back in the gym, Fireheart took on Roark.

http://img571.imageshack.us/img571/7007/ultsoloroark.png
Armed with HP Ground, Fireheart OHKOed Geodude and Onix, then 2HKOed Cranidos.


Checked the power of Fireheart's HP Ground - it is 47, which ain't horrible.
In the second level of the Oreburgh Gate, I got Flash and caught a Psyduck named Pain, who was taught Flash immediately.
Arrived in Floarama Town after going through Lost Cave, and dealt with the Valley Windworks crisis.

http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/3103/ultsolomars1.png
Mars' Purugly was powerful, so after a Super Potion, Fireheart took it down with a crit Bite.


After healing up, I went north, and after beating a bunch of trainers, I ended up in Eterna Forest.
I took Cheryl through, not really grinding at all as Fireheart didn't need it.
Arrived in Eterna City and got Cut from Cynthia, which I taught to Derp.
Challenged the gym.

http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/9534/ultsologardenia.png
Fireheart OHKOed Gardenia's three minor grass-types with Flame Wheel, then 2HKOed Roserade for the win.


After that, I went up the the Galactic building and proceeded to wipe them out.

http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/4021/ultsolojupiter1.png
Jupiter's Skuntank got a crit with Night Slash, so I had to use a Super Potion, but Fireheart handled it easily, 3HKOing with HP Ground.


Got a Bike from the guy I saved, then took it down Cycling Road.
Dawn then showed up with early Christmas gifts - a VS Seeker and a Dowsing App for my Poketch.
Found the Revive on the ground, then healed up in Oreburgh.
Went underneath the bridge to Wayward Cave.
Led Mira out of the cave, fighting all the trainers in the process.
After emerging, I pressed on east, eventually meeting Cyrus in Mt. Coronet on the way to Hearthome City.
In Hearthome City, I helped out the judge, then talked to her again in the Contest Dome to unlock the routes out of Hearthome.
In the middle of the city, Zane came out of nowhere.

http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/5800/ultsolozane2.png
Fireheart has Fire Fang now, which made for easy pickings.


Saved and quit after the battle.
The next step is to go to Pastoria City by way of Soleceon Town and Veilstone City.

Welcome back Myrrh :). Looking at the new updated challenger/victor list I would just like to point out that you have forgotten to put down that I have finished the Ultimate solo with Kabutops, the post should be around page.....Something......Something.....10? Maybe I'll check :P.

EDIT: Yes it's the first post on page 10, anyway because I feel like it(and I just managed to get a 90% translated version of black :D) and I feel as if the Ultimate hasn't really been finished without doing this, I'm going to playthrough black with Metagross then Kabutops to truly complete the Ultimate solos I finished awhile ago. Anyway for now my biggest problem will be finding out how to get some lvl 5 belums/kabutos into the game....

EDIT(agian): Found a wild pokemon modifier pretty fast so I can now proceed to the mindless part of every Beldum challenge where you spend an hour training it so it doesn't have to use takedown to kill everything.

PorygonZ, can't you do screenshots? Just curious, since you never do them.

Well, I did some screenshots only in Fire Red's Trio Species Challenge, and after that... nothing.
If you're fine, when I'll finish the Sapphire part of the Solo Run, I'll do some HoF screenshots.
And, most of the time, I don't like to wrote too much :D

Anyways, I started the Sapphire leg, but I preferred to cheat a Lv. 5 Trapinch in Route 102.
I got the 1st Badge and now I'm in Dewford.

Myrrh, just gonna say that its probably a good idea to put up a little information about black and white on the main post, pretty much saying that it isn't needed for ultimate solos (yet) and pointing out that the finish point for them is after actually defeating the main storyline(meaning it'll be kinda like red seen as you don't verse the champion until finishing the main story line, which happens to include beating the elite four members and some.....other stuff which I wont mention for spoilers) incase anyone(like wingman, and me in the case of my ultimate) wants o atemp soloing these games.

EDIT: So far I've only earned 3 badges and am just leaving artys gym, haven't really done much but thats mostly because of the extremely boring time I have training Beldum until he evolves in Metang, ow well he's evolved now so I should be able to do alot tomorrow. Anyway will being bored training Beldum I created a little Metagross userbar :P.http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/3720/180px376metagross.png

I don't know much about Black/White's storyline, so you'll have to tell me if this is okay. Can I just say "Black and White challenges end after you defeat the champion"?

stargate1995
December 18th, 2010, 03:02 PM
yes that should be fine as you don't verse the champion until you rematch the pokemon league, after finishing the main storyline.

Of course, that becomes pretty dang hard. The Elite Four is between levels 48 and 50 the first time; they jump all the way up to 71-73 when you face them the second time. My Doryuuzu was level 76 and I had a hard time doing anything. I had to use all my Rare Candies to get him to level 84, and even then it was impossibly hard to win. I think that Black and White will become the death of any Ultimate Solo Challenge if that is the case.

Ahh yes but you didn't go explore those other 3 towns, theres enough training to get you up to the right level to fight them, anyway Metagross pretty much covers all of there teams easily(not to sure about the champion but isn't he fighting based?) anyway I'll probably have more problems doing Kabutops then doing Metagross.

EDIT: Ok so looked it up the champion is mixed(although he has 3 bug types) and doesn't have any fighting types >.<.

Challenge complete woot


I must say the game was fairly easy up until the elite four rematch which was insane, however it would have been so much easier had I not forgotten to restock on revives before rematching them. I ended up having to vs them all with only 2 revives and 2 max revives making it very hard. BTW the champions Ulgamoth is a total beast XD was the hardest thing to take down.

Well anyway I'm glad I did this and that I can now feel that Metagross's solo days can be put to rest(at least until they come up with a new game :P), but this doesn't mean I'm gonna stop using Metagross on my teams. I mean before this challenge I had a 2 lvl 100 Metagross's one of which shiny(chained) but now I have soon to be 5 lvl 100 Metagross(would be 7 but hoenn and kanto where emulated) honestly I just can't stop training them!

I think I wont do the Black part of my previous Kabutops run until awhile after Christmas as this is my second playthrough of Black within a week and can't be bothered playing through again right now.

Well I went to my Grandma's house over the weekend and managed to play quite a bit on the drive up. I took some notes on what happened so I could have a semi-meaningful update.

We left off chillen by Eterna Forest. Well the forest was easy and I gained quite a bit of levels there. Since Eve was a bit overleveled I went straight for the Eterna gym and smashed her. Two badges down, six to go!

Killed off the grunts, trained against the surrounding trainers. Grabbed a Pokemon egg and took off down Cycling Road. That trip was pretty easy too.

I passed through mount Cornet and reached Hearthome city. No gym battle here yet so I got my Tuxedo and took off towards Veilstone.

On the long way there I made a stop in Solaceon and explored the ruins, as well as the Lost Tower for the HM strenght? I believe that was the one.

Continuing decimating trainers on my route to Veilstone, Eve reached level 40 and evolved into Drapion. Now those stats really started to shine. I reached Veilstone, healed and challenged the gym leader. I had doubts that this fight would go easy and was concerned about the Lucario, but because Eve has awesome defense I made it through pretty quickly. Next I helped Dawn get her Pokedex back and got the HM Fly. Onwards to Pastoria City.

The route was uneventful. In Pastoria I used the move re-learned to teach Eve Ice Fang, I also realized I forgot to get the Earthquake TM, so I'll have to backtrack for that later. The gym was pretty boring too. Eve was was overleveled for it.

Then I chased off a grunt. Saved after I beat him down. Well I suppose I'll head to Hearthome next since I have that SecretPotion now.....

I think I started one of these a while ago on Pearl with a Flygon and got to the seventh badge, but since that was so long ago I want to start a new run on Platinum with Spheal --> Sealeo --> Walrein. I've already prepared the egg and will be starting tomorrow, if not tonight.

If I can't decide who I want, would it be okay to ask for a random Poke that I can hack in on Platinum?

Used a random number generator from 1-493, got 178. So I'm starting with Natu (177) on Platinum. Wish me luck, haven't used either much at all. The downside is waiting to get the Poketch before I can get Natu in..


Phew. Caught the bugger, Mild nature, male, level 8. almost beat my level 8 AAAAAA (Chimchar, was hitting the a button while watching fiance play my GTA IV), Putting Chimchar in a box for now. Slave pokes will be Bibarel and Kricketune...And I'm NOT looking forward to my battle with Roark :P

myrrhman
December 31st, 2010, 12:56 PM
Right. Everything's updated.

@imevil: The way the sign up board is setup, you're supposed to beat FR first. Since you've already beaten Ruby, VM me when you finish the first two so I put you on the proper list.

@Daeva: Wow, I was going to say something like "I guess you're just going to have to grind til you learn Confusion". Then I looked at Serebii and realized that Natu doesn't learn damaging Psychic attacks until level 36... Good luck with that. At least after Roark, you get Grass

Daeva Okami-Luca
December 31st, 2010, 02:52 PM
I cannot begin to tell you how much of a pain Mars was with her Purugly. I trained Utaks (Natu) until level 23, (till he was faster), had to use Machop as a martyr to heal Utaks from Zubat's bite...Then I used Confuse Ray and spammed Me First to use Purugly's Faint Attack against it. It hurt itself twice (thank gods, because I actually had 0 money from blacking out so much), and finally won.

The whole process of training it to level 23 from 18 at the Valley Windworks grass took more than an hour. >_<

It's definitely a challenge, and the Snowpoint and last gym will be even harder.

But now I've got a very good Xatu. Mild nature, nice HP. Quick to flee.

Roark wasn't too difficult, if I recall I spammed Night Shade at level 17. Cranidos was annoying, but managed to KO it. It was actually pretty easy, considering he spammed Pursuit instead of Headbutt.

Diamond update #3.

Went from Pastoria, where I beat Wake with Crunch and Zane as well, to Celestic, where I got Surf, to Hearthome, where I destroyed Fantina with Crunch, to Fuego Ironworks, where I got a Fire Stone and evolved Fireheart into Arcanine, to Canalave City, where Fireheart swept Zane with Flamethrower. Also used a Heart Scale to teach Fireheart ExtremeSpeed.

At least by the end of the game you'll be overleveled as nobody's business. That's the beauty of solo challenges. The beginning is supposed to be really tough, but by the end you should be just fine. Also, if you can get the TM before you fight her, you might want Steel Wing for Candice.

Ok, before I start this challenge, I have to ask.

You may also play through established Pokemon Hacks of a generation. I say established so that you can't make your own hack where you start with 99 rare candies in your PC; that's cheating.


Since I can't find a HG or SS ROM that I'd need to hack to get a Kecleon in the beginning, would Shiny Gold (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=74447) be an acceptable replacement for Johto?

(I don't even know what I'll do about sinnoh... ._.)

Started my solo with Rattata today.

I picked Squirtle as my starter(surf slave)
After delivering Oaks parcel I caught my Rattata and nicknamed him MrAwesome
I grinded him to 11 then defeated my rival(ThatNub).
I then traveled up to Pewter City and took on Brock.
My first attempt failed because I ran out of potions, so I went and bought more and challenged him again.
I was finally able to defeat him because I spammed tail whip and potions enough that I 2HKO'd his Onyx with Hyper Fang.
*I'll post proof of my gym battles when I get my 15 posts because I can't post URL's at the moment and that's the only way I know of to post pictures.
I then went up to Mt. Moon and saved my game. More to come tomorrow!

Hacked a Tentacool in as a starter and chose it.
I never realised how hard Tentacool was to train early on.
I travelled through Virridian forest having to backtrack back to Virridian city countless amounts of times to ue the pokecentre
I reached Pewter city and decided to challenge Brock to see how much training i would need.
I lost pretty much witout damaging geodude at all.
Countless amounts of training and Zenny was at L20 but i still failed to win.
Things becamme serious so i trained Zenny to L25 so she would learn Bubblebeam.
This made the battle almost meaningless.

Sorry for such a late update, but anyways here we go!

I started with Charmander and named him Spade. I went through Route 1 and caught a Pidgey as a Slave. Spade and I burned down Viridian Forest with ease! Then we took on Brock with Metal Claw. Mt. Moon was more of a puzzle than it was hard. I took on Nugget Bridge and discovered a trick. Once you complete the first five trainers, Go back and spend all your money. Then, put a lower levelled Pokemon in your team, and fight the Team Rocket guy over and over. Each time you battle him, you get a Nugget! Anyways, Misty was hard! I had to grind and teach Spade Secret Power to put her. Finally, I beat her and I'm on my way to Vermillion.

Sorry for only entering one sentence per part, it's a long story. Oh, and I have pictures of the Gym Leaders, post em later...
