Well, I already beat the game on both Ruby and LeafGreen - I did them on an emulator with turbospeed access on a Windows computer. I sped through them on it because I didn't want to have to bring that computer to college with me (and i'd prefer not to bring any of my GBA games with me). I move into my dorm tomorrow, so I zipped through them. I'll post the final updates for LeafGreen later, but here are two now.

Ruby Ground Monotype, Update #5 - Final Update

Spoiler:
-Went to Meteor Falls and got TM02 for Dragon Claw.
-Arrived in Ever Grande City.
-Made it through Victory Road.
-Beat Wally, he was pretty easy since Dustshoot was able to beat his guys quickly with Earthquake (except Altaria, who died to one Ice Beam from Finley).
-Trained everyone to Level 51-53.

Sidney overview:
Team entering the fight: Finley LV53 / Sea Incense - Surf, Mud Shot, Earthquake, Ice Beam
Top Hat LV52 / Lax Incense - Psychic, Shadow Ball, Light Screen, Dig
Dustshoot LV53 - Crunch, Earthquake, Screech, Fly
Trunkers LV52 / Soft Sand - Earthquake, Growl, Rock Tomb, Take Down
Caldera LV52 / Charcoal - Magnitude, Earthquake, Flamethrower, Rock Slide
Jigs LV40 - Strength, Selfdestruct, Magnitude, Rock Throw

He starts off with Mightyena while I open with Finley, but he gets off Intimidate. Me: Full health and -1 Attack. I start with Surf, which leaves him with a sliver of health as he uses Sand-Attack to lower my accuracy. Him: 1 HP, Me: Full health and -1 Accuracy. I use Surf again as he uses his Full Restore, but do less than last time. Him: 8% or so HP. I kill him with Ice Beam.
Next up is Cacturne, predictably. I switch out for Dustshoot as he uses Cotton Spore to lower my Speed. Me: Full health and -2 Speed. I use Screech as he misses with Cotton Spore, then use Fly which kills him.
After that is Sharpedo. He uses Surf and gets a critical hit, but I kill him in one hit with Earthquake. Me: 52/168 HP.
Next up is Absol. He uses Snatch, but I use Earthquake and nearly kill him, but his Sitrus Berry activates. Him: 1/3 or so HP. He uses Slash and I live, then kill him with Fly. Me: 12/168 HP.
Finally is his Shiftry. He kills me with Fake Out, so I bring in Caldera. He uses Extrasensory, but I live that pretty easily and kill him with Flamethrower, ending the battle.

Phoebe overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as last time, except i'm leading with Trunked. All others remain unchanged.
She starts off with her first Dusclops while I open with Trunked. I use Earthquake for more than enough for a 2HKO as she uses Future Sight. Another Earthquake kills her.
Then she brings in her next Dusclops, also her ace. Here, I completely derp and send in Dustshoot, and she uses Ice Beam then I get hit with Future Sight. Me: 30/168 HP. I use Screech before she kills me with Shadow Ball. I send in Caldera and use Earthquake, which gets her low, and she uses Earthquake too. Her Sitrus Berry activates. Her: 1/3 or so HP, Me: 64/142 HP. I kill her with another Earthquake.
After that is her weaker Banette. She nearly kills me with Shadow Ball, and lowers my Special Defense, but Earthquake does big damage to her. Her: 1/5 or so HP, Me: 5/142 HP. She uses her Full Restore, and I use Flamethrower for basically the same amount Earthquake did. I let Caldera die, then I bring in Finley and kill her with Mud Shot…and of course I get the critical hit on the turn that doesn't matter. ._.
Next up is Sableye. I use Surf, but she uses Attract. Her: 1/3 or so HP. Thankfully, I hit through it and kill her with another Surf.
Finally is her last Banette. I use Surf, which nearly kills her, and she uses Toxic to badly poison me. She uses her Full Restore, and I kill her with Mud Shot followed by Surf, ending the battle.

Glacia overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as last time, except i'm leading with Trunked. All others remain unchanged.
She starts off with her first Glalie while I open with Trunked. She uses Ice Beam, which hits big, but I use Earthquake for decent damage also. Her: 1/5 or so HP, Me: 50/184 HP. She uses her Full Restore, but I hit her with Rock Tomb and lower her Speed. This allows me to kill her with another Earthquake.
After that is her first Sealeo. I use Earthquake and hit pretty well, but she kills me with Surf. Her: 1/4 or so HP. I send in Finley and kill her with Mud Shot, and again get the critical hit on the last turn.
Next up is her next Sealeo. I use Mud Shot while she goes for Blizzard. Her: 1/3 or so HP, Me: 127/187 HP. I kill her next turn with Earthquake. Finley grows to Level 54 after that.
Then we have her stronger Glalie. I switch out for Jigs just as death fodder to an Ice Beam, then bring in Caldera. She uses Hail, but I kill her in one hit with Flamethrower.
Finally is her ace Pokémon, Walrein. Me: 133/142 HP after hail damage. I Revive Jigs as she kills me with Surf, then I bring in Top Hat. I use Light Screen as she hits with Blizzard, which still hits pretty hard even with Light Screen up. Me: 55/134 HP after hail damage. I use Psychic, which does okay, before she kills me with Blizzard. Her: 2/3 or so HP. I bring in Dustshoot and use Earthquake, which knocks her low, but she kills me with Blizzard. I bring in Finley, and the hail stops, but her Sitrus Berry heals her. Her: 45% or so HP. I kill her with Earthquake and end the battle.

Drake overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as last time, except Top Hat has Ice Beam instead of Psychic, and Dustshoot has Dragon Claw instead of Crunch. All others remain unchanged.
He starts off with Shelgon while I open with Trunked. I use Earthquake, while he hits with Rock Tomb for no damage at all, but lowers my Speed. Him: 1/3 or so HP, Me: 178/184 HP and -1 Speed. Expecting him to use Protect, I go for Take Down, and he barely lives, but he misses with Rock Tomb. Him: 1% HP. He uses his Full Restore while I hit with Earthquake again, then kill him with Take Down. Me: 153/184 HP.
Next up is Altaria. I switch out for Top Hat as he uses Dragon Dance. Uh-oh! Him: Full health, +1 Attack and Speed. He uses it again as I hit hard with Ice Beam. Him: 1/5 or so HP, +2 Attack and Speed. He uses Take Down, which barely does anything even with +2 Attack, as I kill him with another Ice Beam. Me: 100/144 HP.
Following that we have his first Flygon. He uses Crunch and I live, but he narrowly survives my Ice Beam. Him: 1% HP, Me: 53/144 HP. He uses Crunch again, then I go for Light Screen. Me: 8/144 HP. I heal up with a Hyper Potion before he uses DragonBreath. Me: 129/144 HP. He uses Crunch again before I finish him with Shadow Ball.
Then we have his ace, Salamence, who gets off the Intimidate. Me: 105/144 HP and -1 Attack. He uses Flamethrower, which doesn't do much at all, while Ice Beam almost kills him, but then his Sitrus Berry activates. Him: 1/6 or so HP, Me: 84/144 HP. He uses his Full Restore as I hit him with Ice Beam again. Him: 10% or so HP. Then my Light Screen wears off. He nearly kills me with Crunch, and lowers my Special Defense no less, but I survive and kill him with Ice Beam. Me: 6/144 HP and -1 Sp Def.
Finally is his last Flygon. I let Top Hat be death fodder to a DragonBreath, then bring in Finley. He uses Sandstorm, then I finish him with Ice Beam and end the battle.

Champion Steven overview:
Team entering the fight: Caldera LV52 / Charcoal - Magnitude, Earthquake, Flamethrower, Rock Slide
Finley LV54 / Sea Incense - Surf, Mud Shot, Earthquake, Ice Beam
Top Hat LV52 / Lax Incense - Ice Beam, Reflect, Light Screen, Dig
Dustshoot LV53 - Fire Blast, Earthquake, Screech, Fly
Trunkers LV52 / Soft Sand - Earthquake, Growl, Rock Tomb, Take Down
Jigs LV40 - Strength, Selfdestruct, Magnitude, Rock Throw

He starts off with Skarmory while I open with Caldera. He uses Toxic and hits, but I use Flamethrower, which kills him in one hit.
After that is his Aggron. Me: 134/142 HP after poison damage. He uses Earthquake, which nearly kills me, but I survive and kill him with my own Earthquake. Caldera grows to Level 53 after that.
Next up is his ace Pokémon, Metagross. Unfortunately, Caldera faints from poison. I send out Finley. Hey, why not use my own ace Pokémon against the Champion's? He uses Psychic, which does less than half, while my Earthquake does enough for a 2HKO, even after his Sitrus Berry. Him: 45% or so HP, Me: 118/190 HP. Then he uses Earthquake, which I live rather comfortably, allowing me to kill him with another Earthquake. Finley grows to Level 55 after that. Me: 58/193 HP.
Then we have, of course, Cradily. I switch out for Dustshoot as he uses Giga Drain, but it hardly does anything. Me: 128/168 HP. I use Screech to try to soften things as he uses Confuse Ray. Him: Full health and -2 Defense, Me: 128/168 HP and confused. I switch in Jigs and let her be death fodder to a Giga Drain, then bring Dustshoot back in and use Earthquake…which doesn't quite kill him, and he uses Giga Drain again. Me: 88/168 HP, Him: 1/5 or so HP and -2 Defense. Expecting him to use a Full Restore, I go for Screech…and I was right, he uses his Full Restore, and I hit. With -4 Defense, I OHKO him with Earthquake.
Next up is…Claydol, ugh. I use Screech as he uses Reflect. Him: Full health and -2 Defense. I hit with another Screech as he uses Light Screen. Him: Full health and -4 Defense. I use Screech one more time as he uses AncientPower, but it doesn't do much at all since I resist it. Him: Full health and -6 Defense, Me: 77/168 HP. I use Fire Blast to stall for time for Reflect to wear off, but it barely does anything though I wasn't expecting it to, and he uses AncientPower and gets a critical hit, but still nothing. Him: 90% or so HP and -6 Defense, Me: 55/168 HP. I use Fly and avoid AncientPower, and his Reflect wears off, then I kill him.
Finally is his Armaldo. I use Earthquake, which does alright, and I barely live his Slash. Him: 55% or so HP, Me: 2/168 HP. However, I miss with Screech next turn and he kills me. I send in Trunked, and kill him with Earthquake, ending the battle. Trunked grows to Level 53 after that.
That was a pretty fun battle, I knew I was going to win because of type advantages and such, but it worked pretty well. I didn't even need to use any items

And I guess i'll post another LeafGreen update, because I can.

LeafGreen Ground Monotype, Update #3

Spoiler:
-Returned to Lavender Town.
-Found a Cubone in Pokémon Tower which I nicknamed Shrivel.
-Beat all the Channelers and the ghost of Marowak in Pokémon Tower.
-Got the Poké Flute from Mr. Fuji.
-Arrived in Saffron City.
-Went through Silph Co and beat nearly all the grunts. Most of them were easy, but they got annoying.
-Beat Ginsly. He wasn't too hard, just annoying (Alakazam was stupid and kept using Future Sight, lol).
-Giovanni wasn't that hard, either.
-Went down Cycling Road and battled some of the trainers.
-Arrived in Fuchsia City.
-Caught a Rhyhorn in the Safari Zone named Gulch.
-Obtained HM03 for Surf.
-Beat all the trainers on Route 15.

Fuchsia Gym overview:
Team entering the fight: Coleman LV39 - Ice Beam, Dig, Peck, Double Kick
Marley LV38 - Bite, Scratch, Dig, Double Kick
Gulch LV38 - Rock Blast, Dig, Strength, Stomp
Hide LV38 - Magnitude, Rock Slide, Dig, Slash
Mickey LV38 - Dig, Rock Tomb, Sand-Attack, Slash
Punchy LV35 - Rock Throw, Selfdestruct, Mega Punch, Magnitude

He starts off with his first Koffing while I open with Coleman. I use Ice Beam, which leaves him with like 1 HP, while he uses Sludge for pathetic damage. Him: 1% HP, Me: 107/113 HP. He uses his Hyper Potion while I use Peck, then kill him next turn with another Ice Beam.
Next up is Muk. As I use Dig, he uses Minimize twice, but I hit him after the first one. Him: 1/3 or so HP and +2 Evasion. I switch in Hide, as he hits me with Sludge and poisons me, yuck. Me: 52/94 HP and poisoned. I miss with Magnitude twice in a row and he kills me with two hits of Sludge. I bring in Mickey and hit with Dig after he fails to use Sludge, killing him. Good riddance.
After that we have his next Koffing. I use Sand-Attack to start, as he misses with SmokeScreen, haha. Him: Full health and -1 Accuracy. I hit him with Slash, but he poisons me with Toxic. Him: 62% or so HP, Me: 101/107 HP and badly poisoned. I switch in for Coleman as he uses SmokeScreen again, but I hit through it with Ice Beam and kill him.
Finally is his ace, his Weezing. I use Ice Beam, which hits for less than half, but he uses something else (wasn't paying attention since I was speeding up), but misses. Him: 62% or so HP. I switch out for Mickey to get rid of the accuracy drops as he uses Tackle, wow. Me: 84/107 HP and badly poisoned. I hit with Rock Tomb because I don't want him to heal, as he uses Tackle again. Him: 1/2 or so HP and -1 Speed, Me: 59/107 HP and badly poisoned. I use it one more time, then he hits me with Sludge. Him: 1/3 HP, Me: 26/107 HP and badly poisoned. I use two more Sand-Attacks to basically leave Mickey in for death fodder until he faints (then he gets the critical hit on the last turn, lol). I bring in Coleman and finish him with Ice Beam, ending the battle.

-Taught HM03 for Surf to Marley.
-Started heading down Route 19.
-Made it through Seafoam Islands and Route 20.
-Arrived in Cinnabar Island.
-Went through the Pokémon Mansion and got the Secret Key. In doing so, Gulch reached Level 42 and evolved into Rhydon.
-Beat the trainers in the Cinnabar Gym. They were all laughably easy.
-Challenged the Gym Leader, Blaine!

Cinnabar Gym overview:
Team entering the fight: Marley LV41 - Bite, Surf, Dig, Double Kick
Coleman LV41 - Ice Beam, Dig, Peck, Double Kick
Gulch LV42 - Rock Blast, Dig, Strength, Stomp
Hide LV41 - Magnitude, Rock Slide, Dig, Slash
Mickey LV41 - Dig, Rock Tomb, Sand-Attack, Slash
Punchy LV35 - Rock Throw, Selfdestruct, Mega Punch, Magnitude

He starts off with Growlithe while I open with Marley, who gets Intimidated. I kill him in one hit with Surf.
Next up is Ponyta. I use Surf, which barely fails to kill him, while he hits with Fire Blast. Him: 5% or so HP, Me: 75/130 HP. He uses his Hyper Potion, and I use Double Kick then kill him with another Surf.
After that is Rapidash. He misses with Fire Blast while Surf does over half. Him: 1/3 or so HP. He then hits with Fire Blast and kills me with a critical hit, but I don't think it mattered. I bring in Mickey, am somehow faster (geez, for a Sandslash he's outspeeding almost everything, I know he has a +Speed nature but still) and use Dig to kill him.
Finally is his Arcanine, who gets off Intimidate. Me: Full health and -1 Attack. I use Dig, but it doesn't even do half, while he uses Fire Blast and kills me in one hit. I send in Gulch, and he hits hard with Fire Blast, but I use Dig and kill him, ending the battle.
