Well, guess I should do the next updates.

LeafGreen Ground Monotype, Update #5 - Final Update

Spoiler:
-Beat Ginsly in an overall not hard fight.
-Went through the Badge Check Gates.
-Made it through Victory Road, battling the trainers along the way.
-Did massive amounts of training in Victory Road and One Island.
-Got TM24 for Thunderbolt, which I gave to Coleman, and gave TM38 for Fire Blast to Marley.
-Entered the Pokémon League:

Lorelei overview:
Team entering the fight: Marley LV59 - Fire Blast, Surf, Dig, Superpower
Coleman LV59 - Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Dig, Megahorn
Gulch LV59 - Earthquake, Rock Blast, Brick Break, Double-Edge
Hide LV59 - Slash, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Magnitude
Mickey LV59 - Earthquake, Rock Tomb, Slash, Sand-Attack
Punchy LV35 - Strength, Magnitude, Rock Throw, Selfdestruct

She starts off with Dewgong while I open with Marley. I use Superpower, which doesn't kill her, and she uses Ice Beam, which does more than half. Her: 10% or so HP, Me: 82/186 HP. I switch out for Coleman as she uses her Full Restore. I use Thunderbolt then she uses Surf, both doing enough for a 2HKO. Her: 40% or so HP, Me: 69/167 HP. I kill her next turn.
Next up is Closter, who dies to one Thunderbolt.
After that is Slowbro. I use Megahorn, which does more than half, but she kills me with Ice Beam. I bring in Mickey and finish her with an Earthquake.
Following is Jynx, who I am faster than, and kill her with one Earthquake. Geez, i'm glad I got a Sandshrew with a +Speed nature, because for a Sandslash (65 base Speed), Mickey is pretty fast.
Finally is her ace, Lapras. I miss first hit with Rock Tomb, and she uses Ice Beam and I barely live. Me: 15/165 HP. I hit next turn though before she kills me with another Ice Beam. Her: 2/3 or so HP. I bring in Gulch and miss with Rock Blast, then she kills me with Surf. Then I use Marley, who narrowly fails to kill her with Superpower, and she kills me with Ice Beam. Her: 1% HP. I bring in Hide, and she uses her Full Restore, while Rock Slide does less than half. Her: 62% or so HP. I use it again, and she uses Ice Beam, but I live. Her: 25% or so HP, Me: 35/128 HP. I kill her next turn with Earthquake and end the battle.
That was looking to be a pretty good battle up until that stupid Lapras came out. Thankfully, Hide survived that Ice Beam, otherwise this would have sucked even more.

Bruno overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as last time. All Pokémon, moves and items remain unchanged.
He starts off with his first Onix while I open with Marley. One Surf kills him.
Next up is his second Onix, who also dies to one Surf. Uh, are you even trying?!
After that is his Hitmonlee. I use Dig and avoid a Mega Kick, then hit for enough for a 2HKO, but his Mega Kick hits, though I get Poison Point, yay. :D Him: 1/3 or so HP and poisoned, Me: 137/186 HP. I kill him with Surf.
Following that is his ace, his Machamp. I use Fire Blast, which does less than half, but he misses with Scary Face. Him: 2/3 or so HP. I use it again, and he hits with Scary Face this time, and his Sitrus Berry activates. Him: 45% or so HP, Me: 137/186 HP and -2 Speed. After thinking about it for a few minutes, I send in Mickey, as he uses Cross Chop, which misses. Nice! I use Earthquake, which does enough to finish him off.
Finally is his Hitmonchan. Earthquake does almost enough to kill him, but he uses Rock Tomb. Him: 1/6 or so HP, Me: 157/165 HP and -1 Speed. He uses another Full Restore, and I use Slash, which gets a critical hit and knocks him right back where he was. He uses ANOTHER Full Restore, and I get ANOTHER critical hit. Wow, this is funny. He uses Sky Uppercut, but it doesn't do much at all, and I kill him with Slash and end the battle.
Not much to this battle; I hardly took any damage during it (though he missed a few times and he was stupid) and basically got the job done well.

Agatha overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as last time, except i'm leading with Hide. All others remain unchanged.
She starts off with her first Gengar while I open with Hide. I use Rock Slide, which only does around 1/3, but she flinches. Her: 2/3 or so HP. I use Rock Slide again, and she flinches again, just wow. Her: 1/3 or so HP. I use Rock Slide and kill her…of course, getting the critical hit on the turn that doesn't matter.
Next up is Golbat. I use Rock Slide, which does enough for a 2HKO, but she uses Confuse Ray. Her: 40% or so HP. I use a Full Heal as she uses Air Cutter. Me: 89/128 HP. Another Rock Slide kills her, and AGAIN I get the critical hit on the last turn. Twice in a row in one battle, that's just sad.
After that is her Haunter. I use Rock Slide again, and get a critical hit which kills her in one hit. Yes, THAT'S what I like to see. See, Hide, why couldn't you have done that on her first two guys?
Following that is her stronger Gengar. I only have one Rock Slide left, and I use it…does around the same that it did to her first Gengar, and she uses Hypnosis. Her: 2/3 or so HP, Me: 89/128 HP and asleep. I switch out for Mickey, and she uses Shadow Ball, which barely does anything. Me: 137/165 HP. She hits with Hypnosis, then next turn I use the Poké Flute to wake Mickey up as she uses Shadow Ball again. Me: 106/165 HP. She hits with Hypnosis AGAIN, this isn't funny :\ I use the Poké Flute again and she tries to use Nightmare, but fails. She misses with Hypnosis, while I miss with Rock Tomb. Dang it! Sure enough, she hits with Hypnosis next turn. I use the Poké Flute as she fails with Nightmare. She uses Shadow Ball (THANK YOU) while I hit with Rock Tomb and lower her Speed, but the Sitrus Berry activates. Her: 62% or so HP and -1 Speed, Me: 78/165 HP. At least her Speed is lowered, that's a big help. I hit with Rock Tomb again and she hits with Hypnosis, but it should still be all good. Her: 1/3 or so HP and -2 Speed. I switch out for Gulch as she uses Shadow Ball, which doesn't do much at all. Me: 187/214 HP. We both miss with Rock Blast and Hypnosis, then next turn I hit with Rock Blast and kill her with two hits. Ugh, good riddance!
Finally is her Arbok. She gets off Intimidate, but she misses with Iron Tail and I kill her in one hit with Earthquake even after Intimidate.
Freaking Gengar… Keep hitting with Hypnosis and avoid my attacks, why don't you?

Lance overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as before, except i'm leading with Coleman. All others remain unchanged.
He starts off with Gyarados while I open with Coleman, and he gets off Intimidate. I use Thunderbolt, which kills him in one hit.
Next up is his Aerodactyl. I switch out for Mickey as he uses Wing Attack, but that doesn't do much at all. Me: 136/165 HP. He uses it again as I hit him with Rock Tomb. Him: 60% or so HP and -1 Speed, Me: 104/165 HP. He uses Scary Face while I go for Sand-Attack. Then he hits with Wing Attack while I use Sand-Attack again. Him: 60% or so HP, -1 Speed and -2 Accuracy, Me: 73/165 HP and -1 Speed. I switch out for Gulch as he uses Wing Attack for pathetic damage. Me: 199/214 HP. We both miss with AncientPower and Rock Blast. He hits for hardly anything, while I hit with Rock Blast and kill him with two hits. Me: 185/214 HP.
After that is one of his Dragonairs. He uses Safeguard, then I kill him in one hit with Earthquake.
Following that is his next Dragonair. He uses Outrage, but I live and kill him with Earthquake. Me: 110/214 HP.
Finally is his Dragonite. I use a Hyper Potion, then he hits with Outrage, but it does half on the dot. Me: 107/214 HP. Yeah, don't want to chance that. I use a Hyper Potion, and he does more than half. Me: 90/214 HP. I accidentally use a Hyper Potion on Mickey (meant to send in Punchy as death fodder) then he kills me. So I send in Mickey, and his Safeguard wears off - perfect timing, because he becomes confused due to fatigue. I use Rock Tomb and lower his Speed, as he hurts himself in confusion. Him: 62% or so HP, -1 Speed and confused. I switch out for Coleman as he hurts himself in confusion again, which activates his Sitrus Berry, but I finish him off next turn with Ice Beam and end the battle.
Well I had the right attacks here, so I was pretty sure I would win this without much issue.

Champion Ginsly overview:
Team entering the fight: Coleman LV59 - Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Dig, Megahorn
Gulch LV59 - Earthquake, Rock Blast, Brick Break, Double-Edge
Hide LV59 - Slash, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Magnitude
Mickey LV59 - Earthquake, Rock Tomb, Slash, Sand-Attack
Punchy LV35 - Strength, Magnitude, Rock Throw, Selfdestruct
Marley LV59 - Fire Blast, Surf, Dig, Superpower

He starts off with Pidgeot while I open with Coleman. I use Thunderbolt, which…gets a critical hit and kills him in one hit. Wow.
Next up is Alakazam. He uses Psychic, which kills me in one hit without a critical hit. So I bring in Mickey, and he uses Reflect, but I lower his Speed with Rock Tomb. Him: 5/6 or so HP and -1 Speed. Then I use Earthquake, which does more than enough for a 2HKO, as he hits hard with Psychic. Him: 1/3 or so HP, Me: 39/165 HP. I kill him with another Earthquake. Mickey grows to Level 60 after that.
After that is Exeggutor. I use a Max Revive on Coleman as I let Mickey be death fodder to a Giga Drain. I send in Marley and use Fire Blast, which does more than half, but he uses Sleep Powder, and his Reflect wears off. Him: 40% or so HP. I use the Poké Flute to wake Marley up, as he uses Giga Drain again, and gains some health, but he's weak enough for me to kill him with another Fire Blast. Me: 128/186 HP.
Next up is Rhydon. I use Surf and kill him in one hit, with a critical hit that I probably didn't need, but you never know. Either way, Marley grows to Level 60 after that.
Following that is Gyarados, who gets off Intimidate. I send in Punchy just as death fodder to a Hydro Pump, then I bring in Coleman and use Thunderbolt, which he survives, and hits with Hydro Pump, which gets a critical hit on the first hit and kills me. Him: 1/6 or so HP. Well, i'm not completely sure if it mattered, but still, not cool. I bring in Gulch, and he uses his Full Restore, then I hit with Rock Blast…which gets three hits, but he barely lives!!!!! Him: 5% or so HP. I use a Revive on Coleman, and he uses another Full Restore, yep. He misses with Hydro Pump, which very well could have saved us the battle right there, and I hit with Double-Edge. Him: 55% or so HP. I switch in Marley for death fodder to a Hydro Pump, then bring in Coleman and kill him with Thunderbolt. Coleman grows to Level 60 after that.
Finally is the star of his show, Charizard. He outspeeds me and kills me with Fire Blast, then I send in Hide. I use Rock Slide, which does well over half…and he flinches! His Sitrus Berry heals him, but I hit with Rock Slide again next turn and kill him, ending the battle. Hide grows to Level 60 after that.
I've always remembered having such an easy time with this battle, but that was back in the day when I would blitz through the game with three or four Pokémon. (I am playing on Set mode, though, that might add to it.) But that was okay, even if I did have to use some items I still had only two Pokémon left, so it was a good battle indeed.

SoulSilver Ground Monotype, Update #2

Spoiler:
-The Togepi egg hatched.
-Got HM01 for Cut in Ilex Forest and found one of the Kimono Girls there.
-Went through Route 34 and arrived in Goldenrod City.
-Since my Geodude's nickname apparently had something inappropriate, I changed it to Marhaus.
-Got the Radio Card at the Radio Tower.
-Spent around an hour at the Game Corner getting 10,000 coins for a TM24 for Thunderbolt.
-Caught a NidoranM on Route 35 named Gareth and taught him Thunderbolt. Since i'll only be getting one Moon Stone until near the end of Johto (at the Ruins of Alph unless I get extremely lucky with a Clefairy), I didn't bother getting NidoranF yet.
-Beat all the trainers on Route 35. In doing so, Gareth evolved into Nidorino and Arcana evolved into Quagsire.
-Soloed the trainers in the Goldenrod Gym with Rocky.
-Challenged the Gym Leader, Whitney!

Goldenrod Gym overview:
Team entering the fight: Gareth LV17 - Thunderbolt, Peck, Focus Energy, Double Kick
Arcana LV20 - Mud Shot, Water Gun, Headbutt, Tail Whip
Rocky LV18 - Tackle, Rock Tomb, Headbutt, Screech
Marhaus LV18 - Rock Polish, Selfdestruct, Magnitude, Rock Throw

She starts off with Clefairy while I open with Gareth. I use Double Kick, which looks to do half, while she misses with DoubleSlap. Her: 1/2 or so HP. I hit her with Double Kick again, and become infatuated on the first hit, but it doesn't matter because I kill her with the second.
After that is her ace, of course, Miltank. She uses Stomp, which does just less than half, while I go for Double Kick, which doesn't do much at all. Her: 4/5 or so HP, Me: 28/52 HP. I stay in, and she uses Attract, grrrrr. And Gareth is immobilized. I stay in hoping maybe Poison Point will get rid of that Lum Berry, and she uses Stomp, but again no dice at all. Me: 7/52 HP. So I switch out to Arcana as she uses Rollout, which does nothing. Me: 68/70 HP. She hits the second time while I use Mud Shot to lower her Speed. Her: 58% or so HP and -1 Speed, Me: 64/70 HP. The third hit does slightly more, but still a pathetic amount, while Mud Shot gets a critical hit and kills her, ending the battle. Gareth grows to Level 18 after that.
I guess that turned out well enough, was not expecting the critical hit on Miltank but I certainly welcome it. And please don't go "Y U OVERLEVEL", that Miltank can be hard, and although I did have two Rock-types to take its attacks, I was battling every trainer on the surrounding routes, and Arcana had a lot of EXP from when I was only using her and Marheus, so yeah.

-Got the SquirtBottle from the woman at the Flower Shop.
-Got the Hard Stone from Arthur (hey, that's my character's name too) of Thursday on Route 36.
-Beat Sudowoodo and got the Berry Pots.
-Got the Bicycle at Goldenrod City.
-Went through National Park and Routes 36 and 37, beating all the trainers there.
-Arrived in Ecruteak City.
-Saved the Kimono Girl at the Dance Theater and got HM03 for Surf.
-Went to the Burned Tower and beat Merlin, who overall wasn't hard. And the rest of the trainers.
-Got HM04 for Strength on Route 42.
-Beat the trainers on Route 38 and 39 to get some EXP, and some wild Pokémon (screw training in this game…).
-Met with Baoba on Route 39.
-Beat all the trainers in the Ecruteak Gym - Arcana did nearly all the work there, but Gareth fought a bit also. Some of them were laughably stupid.
-Challenged the Gym Leader, Morty!

This is actually my second attempt, first time I had Amnesia against Gengar, but he killed me with a critical hit and then killed all my others in one hit with Shadow Ball. So let's try this again!

Ecruteak Gym overview:
Team entering the fight: Arcana LV25 / Quick Claw - Surf, Amnesia, Mud Shot, Water Gun
Gareth LV24 - Thunderbolt, Peck, Focus Energy, Double Kick
Marhaus LV22 - Rock Throw, Magnitude, Selfdestruct, Rock Polish
Rocky LV23 - Tackle, Headbutt, Rock Tomb, Screech

He starts off with Gastly while I open with Arcana. The Quick Claw activates first turn and I use Amnesia, while he uses Lick, which paralyzes me on the first hit, of course. But at least I can't be put to sleep while i'm paralyzed. Me: 83/86 HP, +2 Sp Def and paralyzed. He uses Curse, while I get fully paralyzed. Me: 62/86 HP. He uses Mean Look, but I hit through paralysis and kill him with Surf. Me: 41/86 HP.
Next up is Gengar. Already? Ugh…I use an X Sp. Def as he uses Shadow Ball, which, even with +3 Sp Def, is enough to kill me after the Curse. Both Rocky and Marhaus are killed in one hit, while on the latter's turn I use a Revive, then Gareth lives with 3 HP while I heal up Arcana with a Fresh Water, but it doesn't matter because he dies next turn. The Quick Claw activates and I use Quick Claw while he misses with Hypnosis. He uses Sucker Punch (how pathetic) while I use Surf…which gets a critical hit and leaves him with like a sliver of health!!! Then his Sitrus Berry activates. Him: 1/4 HP, Me: 72/86 HP and +2 Sp Def. He uses Shadow Ball, but I manage to kill him with Surf. Me: 48/86 HP.
After that is his weaker Haunter. He hits with Hypnosis, but I use an Awakening next turn, so he fails with Dream Eater. He hits with it again (ARE YOU SERIOUS?!) and I have no Awakenings left. He uses Dream Eater, but thankfully since I used Amnesia it doesn't do much at all. Me: 36/86 HP, +2 Sp Def and asleep. Same thing next turn. Me: 23/86 HP, +2 Sp Def and asleep. He uses it again, and I wake up next turn and use Surf, but he barely lives! Him: 10% or so HP, Me: 11/86 HP and +2 Sp Def. He uses his Hyper Potion while I use a Lemonade. He hits with Hypnosis AGAIN (!!!!!!!!!!) and i'm put asleep. Dream Eater. Me: 73/86 HP. He uses it again, and I wake up, and leave him with 1 HP. Him: 1 HP, Me: 62/86 HP. He hits with Hypnosis AGAIN! That's just stupid. BUT, the Quick Claw activates AND I wake up, killing him with Surf. Thankfully I didn't get the critical hit there, I would have raged had that happened. Arcana grows to Level 26 after that.
Finally is his stronger Haunter, which thankfully doesn't have much in the way of attacking. He uses Curse, which allows me to kill him with Surf, ending the battle.
Three words: NEVER. EVER. AGAIN. That's all I can say to describe this battle. Seriously, could that have been any less fun? Thank god I got that critical hit on Gengar, or that would have been even worse. He deserved that, honestly. And I would not have won had it not been for that Quick Claw, either.


And here's my team there:

Spoiler:
Geodude (M) "Marhaus", Level 22
Nature: Brave
Ability: Rock Head
Moves: Magnitude, Rock Polish, Rock Throw, Selfdestruct

Quagsire (F) "Arcana", Level 26
Nature: Quiet
Ability: Water Absorb
Moves: Amnesia, Mud Shot, Surf, Water Gun

Onix (M) "Rocky", Level 23
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Sturdy
Moves: Headbutt, Rock Tomb, Screech, Tackle

Nidorino (M) "Gareth", Level 24
Nature: Rash
Ability: Poison Point
Moves: Double Kick, Leer, Peck, Thunderbolt
