MASSIVE update from me.
I have turned my TCG Challenge into an Ultimate version. For anyone who does not know what an Ultimate Challenge is, it is when you must complete the same challenge on one game set in each region. 1 Kanto game, I Johto game, etc.

Pokémon Red Update:
I managed to beat Giovanni, as the final Gym Leader, with a level 34 Apples, a level 38 Spira, a level 44 Sonic, a level 45 Ratty. and a level 48 Burnsy.
After defeating Giovanni, I boxed Apples, and brought out my level 40 Monk.
I easily defeated my Rival in Route 22, and continued on to Victory Road.
Once in Victory Road, I temporarily ignored my goal, to find and kill Moltres, both for the Exp, and for fun.
Upon reaching the Elite Four, my party's levels were: 54 (Burnsy), 48 (Ratty), 47 (Sonic), 41 (Monk + Spira)
As I was, I could not even beat Lorelei without using 2 or 3 Max Potions.
I continued to face Lorelei, and eventually got further and faced Bruno, and Agatha, without the intention of winning, but to train my Pokémon instead. Unfortunately, Burnsy was having to sweep them all on his own when the others fainted rather quickly.
Due to this, Burnsy quickly became overlevelled, while my other Pokémon were falling behind.
However, this gave me an idea for my final strategy.
When I believed I was ready, I bought 5 Revives, and 4 Max Potions.
Facing Lorelei again, all of my Pokémon fainted, except Burnsy.
Burnsy managed to finish off Lorelei. He then managed to sweep Bruno, Agatha and Lance, only getting hurt twice.
Before facing my rival, I revived all of my party members, but left them all on half health.
I led the way with Burnsy, my overlevelled Charmeleon, and swift care of my rival's first Pokémon, only getting hurt by about 15 HP.
Due to the rules, I had to switch, so I switched to a Pokémon I did not care about, and used a Max Potion on Burnsy (I know it seems unnecessary, but this was my strategy. Need him at full health just in case)
When my Pokémon fainted, I swapped back to Burnsy and defeated the next one.
I continued this until I did not have any Max Potions left, and all that was left were 2 Pokémon of his, and 2 Pokémon of mine.
Burnsy quickly defeated the next Pokémon, however, my rival's last Pokémon was his most dangerous, Blastoise.
I didn't feel confident enough that my Charmeleon could defeated Blastoise without getting hit and defeated first.
I switched in Ratty, my only other Pokémon still alive, and used Super Fang on Blastoise, cutting his HP in half.
Now I was confident.
Ratty fainted, and I swiched back in my Burnsy, who finished off the Blastoise with a Slash.
