SoulSilver Ground Monotype, Update #6

Spoiler:
-Headed to Route 27 and arrived in the Kanto region.
-Went through Tohjo Falls.
-Made it through the trainers on Routes 27 and 26 to reach Victory Road. On a side note, Lionel's Ice Fang was freezing on more than one occasion, which is pretty lucky.
-Trained Marhaus and Rocky up to Level 38 before entering Victory Road, and Lionel to Level 40 where he learned Earthquake.
-Caught a Rhyhorn in Victory Road named Maleagant.
-Beat Merlin one last time. Sneasel was an easy OHKO after one Curse from Rocky, Typhlosion and Magneton were down to one Earthquake from Marhaus (though they both wore him down quite a bit), Haunter died to two Choice Specs Thunderbolts from Gareth, Kadabra was killed with two Ice Shards from Lionel (second one after Reflect), and Golbat died to two Ice Fangs.
-Arrived at Indigo Plateau.
-Did a lot of training to get all my main guys up to Level 46.
-Entered the Elite Four!

Will overview:
Team entering the fight: Lionel LV46 / NeverMeltIce - Ice Fang, Earthquake, Ice Shard, Mud-Slap
Marhaus LV46 / Shell Bell - Double-Edge, Explosion, Rock Blast, Earthquake
Gareth LV46 / Choice Specs - Thunderbolt, Earth Power, Fire Blast, Double Kick
Arcana LV46 / Soft Sand - Earthquake, Surf, Mud Shot, Yawn
Rocky LV46 / Quick Claw - Dig, Rock Tomb, Curse, Crunch
Morgause LV24 - Poison Sting, Sand-Attack, Strength, Fury Swipes

He starts off with his first Xatu while I open with Lionel. I use Ice Fang, which kills him in one hit.
Next up is Slowbro. I use Earthquake, which does just over half, as he uses Amnesia. Great timing, as it allows me to use Earthquake again and kill him.
After that is Jynx. He uses Lovely Kiss and misses, allowing me to kill him in one hit with Earthquake.
Following is Exeggutor. I use Ice Fang, which leaves him with 1 HP…but he flinches!!! He uses his Full Restore, but I 2HKO him with Ice Shard.
Finally is his second Xatu. He uses Confuse Ray, but I hit through it and kill him in one hit with Ice Fang, ending the battle.
This was actually my second attempt (first time I played up to Bruno and reset because it was getting infuriating), and while a one-man sweep doesn't seem very fun, it's more fun than missing and having to blow up, and repeatedly hitting in confusion when you're one hit away from winning and stuff.

Koga overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as last time except i'm leading with Gareth. All others remain unchanged.
He starts off with Ariados while I open with Gareth. I use Fire Blast, which kills him in one hit.
Next up is Venomoth. I miss with Fire Blast…and he hits with Supersonic, joy. I use a Persim Berry to snap Gareth out of confusion as he uses Psychic. Me: 70/146 HP. I hit with Fire Blast and kill him in one hit.
Following is Forretress. He uses Protect and blocks my Fire Blast, but I hit with my last one and kill him.
After that is his ace, his Crobat. I switch out for Marhaus as he uses Double Team. He uses it again, and I go for Double-Edge (seriously, it's not even worth using Rock Blast at this point) and I miss. He then uses Wing Attack, and I hit with Double-Edge, but it does less than half. Him: 62% or so HP, Me: 137/142 HP. He uses Double Team again as I hit with Double-Edge again, which knocks him into the red, but his Sitrus Berry activates. [B][COLOR="Gray"]Him: 37% or so HP and +3 Evasion, Me: Full health. He uses Wing Attack as I go for Rock Blast, but of course I miss. Me: 131/142 HP. He uses it again, but I hit with Rock Blast and kill him with two hits. Me: 126/142 HP.
Finally is his Muk. He uses Minimize, while I miss with Earthquake. Same thing next turn. He uses it again, but I hit through it and kill him in one hit, ending the battle.
Thank god this isn't Gen V, otherwise Minimize would be troll central.

Bruno overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as last time, except i'm leading with Arcana. All others remain unchanged.
He starts off with Hitmontop while I open with Arcana. He uses Dig and burrows under the ground as I hit him with Earthquake, killing him in one hit.
Next up is Hitmonlee. He's got his Swagger going on, but Arcana's not swayed by that, so she hits through confusion and kills him in one hit with Earthquake.
After that is his Machamp. Ho boy. He uses Cross Chop, as I hit through confusion again and use Earthquake, which…kills him in one hit. Yay! Me: 74/152 HP and +2 Attack.
Following is Onix. He uses Earthquake, while I snap out of confusion and use Surf, which kills him in one hit. Me: 40/152 HP and +2 Attack.
Finally is his Hitmonchan. I use a Moomoo Milk on Arcana as he uses Ice Punch. Me: 110/152 HP and +2 Attack. He uses it again, and I get frozen solid, but thaw out immediately and kill him with Earthquake, ending the battle.
Well that worked out better than the stupid that was the first attempt I had, you don't want to know how that turned out.

Karen overview:
Team entering the fight: Same as before, except i'm leading with Marhaus, and Lionel has the Choice Scarf instead of the NeverMeltIce. All others remain unchanged.
She starts off with Umbreon while I open with Marhaus. She uses Double Team, and I go for Explosion…and hit, killing her.
I send in Rocky as she uses Vileplume, ugh, that was not clever of me. She hits with Stun Spore, as I get fully paralyzed. I switch in Morgause as death fodder to Petal Dance. I bring in Gareth, but then I realize I has no Fire Blast PP left from when I was against Will. I could use a Max Ether, but I say screw it. Earth Power does more than half, and Petal Dance does less than half. Her: 1/3 or so HP, Me: 80/146 HP. This allows me to kill her with another Earth Power.
After that is Houndoom. She uses Flamethrower, which finishes me off. I bring in Lionel and use Earthquake, which kills her. Lionel grows to Level 47 after that.
Following is Gengar. I can't stay in because i'm locked in with the Choice Scarf, so I switch out to Arcana as she uses Focus Blast. Me: 85/155 HP. She uses Spite and fails, while I use Yawn. She uses Spite again as I hit her with Surf for less than half, but she falls asleep. Her: 62% or so HP and asleep. I switch in Lionel again as she continues to snooze, and use Ice Fang, finishing her.
Finally is Murkrow, who also dies to one Ice Fang, ending the battle.
Well that was a bit topsy-turvy, if only for the fact that I could have missed with Explosion. And that Houndoom could have been problematic if I didn't have the Choice Scarf on Lionel (yeah yeah I know, I still had Arcana, but still).

Champion Lance overview:
Team entering the fight: Gareth LV46 / Choice Specs - Thunderbolt, Fire Blast, Double Kick, Earth Power
Lionel LV47 / Choice Scarf - Ice Fang, Earthquake, Mud-Slap, Ice Shard
Marhaus LV46 / Shell Bell - Double-Edge, Explosion, Rock Blast, Earthquake
Arcana LV46 / BrightPowder - Earthquake, Surf, Mud Shot, Yawn
Rocky LV46 / Quick Claw - Dig, Rock Tomb, Curse, Crunch
Morgause LV24 - Poison Sting, Sand-Attack, Strength, Fury Swipes

He starts off with Gyarados while I open with Gareth. He gets off the Intimidate, but it doesn't matter, because i'm faster and kill him in one hit with Thunderbolt. Gareth grows to Level 47 after that.
Next up is one of his Level 49 Dragonites. Probably the one with Blizzard. I send in Lionel as he uses Blizzard, and hits. Me: 84/164 HP. I hit with Ice Fang and kill him in one hit.
After that is his Charizard. I switch out for Marhaus, as he uses Fire Fang, which does no damage at all. Me: 128/142 HP. He uses Air Slash, and I flinch. Me: 86/142 HP. He uses it again, and I miss with Rock Blast, come on. Me: 44/142 HP. He uses it again, I hit, killing him with two hits. Me: 24/142 HP.
After that is his Level 50 Dragonite. I send in Rocky as he uses Outrage. Me: 111/141 HP. The Quick Claw activates and I use Rock Tomb, but it doesn't do much at all, and he gets a critical hit with Outrage. Him: 4/5 or so HP, -1 Speed and confused, Me: 45/141 HP. I send in Arcana as he misses with Fire Blast. He hits through confusion and nearly kills me with Outrage. Me: 34/155 HP. I send in Rocky again as he hits through confusion and uses Outrage again, but I live, and he falls asleep. Me: 11/141 HP. I switch in Lionel again as he remains asleep, then I kill him with Ice Fang.
His last two Pokémon, his other Level 49 Dragonite and Aerodactyl, both die in one hit with Ice Fang, ending the battle. Lionel grows to Level 48 after beating Dragonite, and tries to learn Mist, but I refuse.
Well, I did it. Without losing any Pokémon or even using any items. Would have been even better if that big Dragonite wasn't such a jerk, but it still worked out.
