Update on Ultimate Red Monocolor Challenge.

Final Update (#3) on Platinum.

  • Trudged through the snow to Snowpoint City, and Magma easily beat Candice with Flamethrower.
  • Visited Lake Acuity with Magma's Rock Climb, then went to Veilstone City after exploring more Rock Climb areas.
  • Picked up the Dubios Disc in the Warehouse, and soon afterwards, Matrix evolved into Porygon-Z!
  • Defeated Cyrus in the Team Galactic Headquarters, then beat Saturn to free the Lake Trio.
  • Climbed Mt. Coronet after Cyrus, and ended up in the Distortion World, where I beat Cyrus for the final time.
  • Traveled to Sunyshore City, where Magma took down Volkner with Earthquake and Flamethrower.
  • Got the Waterfall HM for Inky, and we made our way to and through Voctory Road to the Pokemon League.
  • Defeated Barry for the final time, then did some EV training and grinding before using my Rare Candies to get everyone to L57.
  • After a bit of moveset finalizing, it was time to take on the Elite Four.
  • Aaron was easily soloed by Magma's Flamethrower.
  • Bertha was taken down by Matrix and Paladin.
  • Paladin, Inky, and Matrix worked together to take out Flint.
  • Lucian was basically soloed by Scarlet.
  • At last the Champion, Cynthia, was all that stood in my way. Here's a video and play-by-play of the battle:
