Oh God. -dies- I've been playing Pokemon games since Kindergarten, and lo and behold, at 14 I finally beat it. I finally beat it! I'm soooo happy. I figured this would go here, since it's a celebration for me. God, I can't say in words how happy I am. I sure am going to miss my Haunter though. I was like... attached to him. It was creepyweird. I had these Pokemon upon beating the game:

Thunder/Jolteon - Lv. 41
Shadow/Umbreon - Lv. 42
Haunter - Lv. 51
Typhlosion - Lv. 56
Arcanine - Lv. 42
Suicune - Lv. 50

I spent ages and ages getting them up there. I spent ages getting them to where they could beat the Elite Four. But if it weren't for Haunter... It never would have happened.

I used Hypnosis/Dream Eater combo successfully on all of Lance's Pokemon except for the Lv. 50 Dragonite. I tried it but it didn't work, and rather resulted in my lovely fainting. So I put Typhlosion out there, and finished it off with a series of "Fire Wheel"s. And then it was over. I just sat there, mouth agape and staring as myself and my Pokemon were all put in the HoF, and still sat there staring as the credits rolled past. Of course, I was rather unhappy that it was over just like that, no chance to do anything else, but I will be checking just in case I can do other stuff ;] And that was that. I ran in here to yell it at my friend. And then came on here. :] I just never thought I'd do it. <3 Sorry about my rambling post that a 5-year-old might make, but I just could not help myself.

Er, yeah. Celebrations is for PC related subjects such as birthdays, so I just moved this to Pokemon General. XD;

Though congrats. ^^;

I bet that was a weight off your shoulders, eh? Congratulations. I don't remember the levels of my Pokémon when I defeated the Elite Four, though.

What game was this by the way? It sounds like one of the metal versions.

I sure am going to miss my Haunter though. I was like... attached to him. It was creepyweird.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with that. :P I mean, I felt the same towards my Meganium in my Gold version. Then Ho-oh came along ...

You know...if you were using Dream Eater to begin with then it's no wonder that it was so hard (Terrible, terrible move, especially if you need to rely on the 55 accuracy Hypnosis to get it in >_>). Really, the E4s are hardly a challenge in any generation. Suicune should have been more than enough on its own because all of lance's pokémon are either water or ice weak (Except Gyarados, which should be handled by Jolteon in one shot). Reflect keeps away all major damage then Surf and Ice Beam/Aurora Beam ftw. Oh well, congrats I guess. I do relate to the feeling of glee on a first win. Had it myself in GSC, although I won by a combo of Graveler and Meganium, both 40-something, my team was a mess and horribly undertrained. xP

Wow, that long? I mean, no offense, but a game of Pokemon can be beat in less than a week. You must have had some serious time constrictions for it to take years to complete one game. Did you like, take a break for a couple of years or something?

Anywho, congrats. Welcome to the hall of fame. Not a bad lineup, but make sure you give them all good movesets, too.

Hey, hey, Dream Eater's not such a bad move. It's Hypnosis that's the problem. That's why I plan to use Darkrai. Its Dark Void is unavoidable. (y)

Congratulations. I too also wonder why it took you so long to beat the game, and what game it is. I've never used the Hypnosis/Dream Eater combo myself, due to Hypnosis's accuracy being so low.

I remember when I first beat Blue. My team was so horrible, but I was so proud of myself. xP

It's Crystal, and with Haunter it seems hyponosis works nearly every time. Also, I've restarted the game many, many times after getting frustrated and giving up. -pines over her old Growlithe, Fire Puppy, from like the 5th grade- And my movesets are probably horrid, to you guys, but for me they work great :] Jolteon is probably my weakest Pokemon. Movesets:

Haunter
Hypnosis
Destiny Bond
Dream Eater
Shadow Ball

Arcanine
Bite
Dig
Ember
Leer

Umbreon
Quick Attack
Faint Attack
Bite
Return

Suicune
Waterfall
Surf
Rock Smash
Whirlpool

Thunder
Flash
Double Kick
Pin Missile
Quick Attack

Typhlosion
Cut
Strength
Fire Punch
Flame Wheel

My strategies are a bit weird, but they're what work for me. I'm working on training my Dratini now, I've gone to Johto with my old team :]

Anybody know where I can get both a Fire Stone and a Water Stone? I intended to have all the Eeveeloutions but it never happened - I only have three.

My god. Using all those horrible HMs moves? No wonder it took so long. Rock Smash on Suicune? 0_o?

Anyway, congrats.

You are so special.
I beat the game with a full pokedex 8 times.

Kanto, I meant Kanto. -facepalm- And, Jesus, don't make me feel retarded. I had the HM moves because they were the moves I needed for some things and this was my only team. With a backup Noctowl. Am I really that horrible?

And what do you mean by 'special'?

I finished my first Pokemon game when I was 9! :shocked:

And I did it twice! :shocked:

But in all seriousness, the games can be hard at times. I couldn't get pass the Ecruteak City Gym for a year because I couldn't figure out the puzzle, but then again I was 8...

Wow, I'm 14 too! Wait...your feelings got hurt by that, and your 14 years old?

Just kidding, seriously congratulations. You must have been on a pretty odd training schedule to take it that long to make your team strong enough to beat the elite four. Also, what game is this the original or the remake?

Congrats. I've also had to deal with an event like this.

It took me 3 years since I got my first 2 Pokemon Games (Red and Blue, around the release date) to beat the E4 for the first time (On Yellow).

I'd like to give A big hand to Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres. Who I, without those wonderful 3, would've never won against the E4.

Ehh...yeah, let's not even get me started about those movesets. Umbreon (the walling utility pokémon) with only damaging moves? Full HM Suicune? Shadow Ball Haunter? (That's a physical move, you know, and Haunter sucks with physical moves) Dig? Jolteon without an electric move? Normally you'd want to play on your pokémon's strengths and cover their weaknesses, not the other way around. .___. But yeah, this isn't Strategies and Movesets so I'll leave it at that.

Hey, hey, Dream Eater's not such a bad move. It's Hypnosis that's the problem. That's why I plan to use Darkrai. Its Dark Void is unavoidable. (y)

BS, Dream Eater is a god-awful move. The only reason it works ingame is because the AI is absolutely clueless. What do you think any opponent with even the slightest clue of strategy will do? Switch out the sleeper - enjoying a free switch because Dream Eater won't do squat - and then KO whatever unfortunate pokémon is saddled with that move. I feel really sorry for your Darkrai to be stuck with a move like that. It has sooo much more potential. Damaging psychic moves aren't really any good on non-psychic pokémon unless you really have no other options. .___.

Congrats on acheiving sucess! I've only finished one pokemon game in my life time it n took me several months at that. Aw now isn't that something to be proud of? One thing we can all take away from your story is never give up, no matter how tough the going gets. U can learn a lot of valuable life lessons from playing pokemon. ^.~

That's really all you needed.

But let her enjoy her moment, members. We all had that moment once.

xD Awesome.

Don't worry though, it takes me a loooong time to beat the games as well. I've actually only beaten two out of all of them that have been out, Gameboy-wise. ^^;

One being Ruby, and the other being Leaf Green.
...and Emerald is getting there. ^^;

Haunter is level 63 now. On most Pokemon, he can do an automatic or 2-hit KO with DREAM EATER. That's right, Dream Eater. So don't diss that combo, thanks much. He can even get RED'S LEVEL 81 PIKACHU with 2 Dream Eater hits, or 2 Shadow Ball hits.

Wait, can't you still go to Kanto and beat the Kanto gym leaders? Its not like your game is completely finished, you can still beat the kanto gyms, and complete your pokedex.

So friggen' what? It doesn't do squat against intelligent opponents for the simple reason I already mentioned: they know how to switch. Don't think something is good just because it works against an AI geared to be beaten by ten-year olds. I'm playing through Crystal right now and three kanto gyms into the game I've beaten every battle with either one or two pokémon from my team without any of them being KOed. My item usage in these battles amounts to two Hyper Potions. Bottom line is: the game is pitifully easy. xP Besides, Red is a pitiful excuse for an opponent. All of his pokémon have extremely singular movesets (E.g. any ground type of comparable level pounds that Pikachu into the ground in one hit while the Pikachu itself can't do crap in damage) that can be nailed by basically anything with a resistance or immunity to the one type that the pokémon happens to have in attacks. Again, it's an opponent meant to be beaten by elementary school children (First time around I beat him with a team of pokémon levels 54 and down, because I had rushed through the game to see what happens). Why don't you face me on Netbattle and I'll show you just how deficient that 'combo' of yours is? Haunter could KO that Pikachu with two Psychics too, without having to go through the trouble of putting it to sleep first, by the way. Oh, and of course Psychic can also drop the opponent's SDef (Making it more efficient than Dream Eater) and won't fail if the opponent wakes up before you get your attack in. So yeah, I think I'll just keep dising one of the most over-rated moves in the history of these games until I see an actually valid argument for why it's better.

You never ever teach Dream Eater to a Haunter IMO. I believe that Jynx is a better choice for such a move. Dream Eater has its uses and is great against wild or trainer pokemon, but in a competitve battle its not reliable enough due to the unpredictability of the other player.

@ Alter Ego: I think you're being a little harsh, considering. Also not everyone has the ability to fight other players competitvely, or even wants to for that matter. Just remember there are more than one level of gaming despite the fact competitive match-ups are the highest form.

@ OP: I know many would see what you achieved as very minor, but unlike some people I remember back to the days when I had just started playing Pokemon. For me, it was hard and beating the E4 was once a goal that I aimed for. I remember my Orginial team on Blue consisting of a raichu with mega kick, a raticate that i now fondly remember as "Bubblecate" because it had bubblebeam and a sandshrew that I had left in the daycare for half the game! To me at one point beating the E4 was my highest goal. So, congrats! Now see if you can do better and learn more about pokemon and thier mysteries. Remember there's always room to improve and that you should be free to train them how you want and of course the ones you like. (Unless in competitive play, you really need to know your pokemon, moves, items and effects for that!)
