You don't know what we've been through...
My computer seems to be giving me issues since my move yesterday, so if I can get it running properly, I'll update the thread later.
In the mean time, I started my bug mono for Johto in Silberne Edition, which is the German version of SoulSilver. After a lot of grinding, I got ledyba to evolve, and managed to defeat Falkner. I chose chikorita so my rival will have a fire starter, like I did with LeafGreen.
For that, I worked on my water mono in blue version, where I managed to defeat Blaine with minimal effort.
