Completely blazing through the game right now. I had a hard time with all the gym leaders, having to rely on Tail Whip most of the time, until I learned Belly Drum. I never knew how useful that move could be. Just Belly Drum, heal, and you're good to go. Wow!
I recently owned my dad. Belly Drum + Dig = Win.

  • Exited Lavander town and headed West towards Celadon City, battled a few trainers on the way and did abit of grinding and Rapidash grew a couple of levels
  • Reached Celadon City and explored, entered the Game Corner and battled the Team Rocket Member, entered the hideout, got a few items, battled all the Rockets, battled the leader Giovanni & cleared out the hideout and got the Silph CO. from Giovanni
  • After alot of batteling, healed Rapidash and went to take on Erika at the Celadon City Gym with Rapidash & HM slave (cut) Charmander
  • Entered the Celadon City Gym, battled all the trainers in the Gym and gained a couple of Levels, had no problem considering Rapidash is fire type and this gym was grass type
  • Healed up Rapidash (again) and took on Erika, I was about 20 levels above and had the advantage of type so this was the easiest gym so far, all 4 Pokémon 1 Hit K.Oed and defeated Erika within seconds!

Well, I have just started a Scyther solo run on Soulsilver. I know, it seems easy. Because Scyther is ridiculously good in Soulsilver, I have set certain restrictions on myself.

-No healing outside or inside of battle unless it's at a Pokemon Center
-No using TMs on Scyther. Using HMs on HM slaves are acceptable, however.
-Only Scyther can be used in battle. Period. If Scyther faints, I'll just start out from my last save point.

So, this isn't quite a normal solo run. After this I will be do other ones with the same rules (Abomomasnow solo run, anyone?). Anyways, I have started.

After going through all the boring starting info, I hacked a Scyther into my game, who I named Buzzkill. The Totodile I chose at Elm's lab would be a Surf/Waterfall slave. I grinded Buzzkill up to Level 10, at which point a went to Mr.Pokemon's house, took the egg, and recived my Pokedex. Along the way, I ran into someone who I did not know. His Chikorita was brought down by two powerful Quick Attacks.
At the lab, I reported to the police officer that the red haired boy's name was Chris (After my brother, who the rival reminds me of). Then, I travelled on to Violet City. The trainers on Route 30 and 31 were no match for Buzzkill's attacks. I grinded up a bit, at which point I went on to the Sprout Tower. Bellsprout and Hoothoot? No problem. Buzzkill took 'em all out.
As you obviously expect, the next thing to do was challenge the gym. I quickly healed at the Pokemon Center before rushing on to the gym. Soon...

Gym Battle!

Falker was no problem, unlike I suspected. Pidgey was taken down in seconds. It took 3 blows to take Pidgeotto down, but it did minimal damage with it's Gust.

Afterward, I ran off to the Pokemart to grab the Pokemon Egg, which will certainly never get past Togepi.

Solo Runner after Falkner:

Buzzkill, Level 16 - Quirky nature - Vacuum Wave, Quick Attack, False Swipe, Pursuit

Hey I wanna join in on this challenge but I don't know what Pokemon to use. I play Sapphire and I can't do hacks and trades. Can anyone suggest a good pokemon I could find early in the game that I could use althroughout? No starters though, that seems too... plain.

@Kebs It might be difficult, but maybe Gardevoir? She has a good Special Attack stat and a good movepool.

I caught a Slakoth just now and I'm thinking of keeping this one instead of the Ralts (but thanks for the tip, Gardevoir seems like a good idea too). Though I'm wondering, should i evolve it to a Slaking or maintain it as a Vigoroth? I mean, Slaking gets a Truant ability so it'd loaf around every two turns or so but it has higher stats (i think?) so I'm unsure of what to do with him.

AND ANOTHER!!!!!!!!!

As the above line says, Lucky the Lickitung has indeed succeeded once more, this time in the Hoenn Region. I have 4 more posts I believe before screenshots can be uploaded, but will do so when I can. Will upload the stats and what not then as well, but for an overview:

Lucky the male Lickitung @ Sitrus Berry
level 77 (I think)
Sidney: Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, Stomp and Earthquake
Phoebe: swapped stomp for Shadow Ball
Glacia: No change, but had to use Groudon to get rid of Hail/revive Lucky
Drake: swapped Shadow Ball for Ice Beam, one beam took out each of his pokemon
Steven: MUCH harder battle. Had to switch between Groudon, Wingull and Marshtomp to revive/heal Lucky twice and restore his PP with an elixer. They did not use any attacks.

Groudon level 45, dont know it's movepool
HMs the Marshtomp, Dive, Waterfall, Strength, Rock Smash
Wingull, Fly and don't know the other 3 moves

Well, need to be starting Platinum I guess. Almost there, and the screenshots will be coming up soon. I'll try and comment on some of the other people's logs just to rack up the post count. hope everyone is having fun with this challenge. Out of curiosity, does anyone think I should evolve Lickitung into Lickilicky in this game? Or would it cause the challenge to become void? I don't really mind either way, but Lickilicky has better stats.

Actually cancel the Abra->Kadabra->Alakazam run. I'll do a on Slowpoke->Slowbro run on Leaf Green. After I've finished I might carry on to a ultimate but I'm not sure now.

EDIT: I've started. Named myself Daichi and Rival Gary. I modded the starter so I got a Slowpoke instead of Bulbasaur and named him Solobro. Charmander was easy after a couple of curses. Followed the story. Got a pokedex. Faced Brock.

Gym Battle 1 Brock

Team before
Solobro Lv.12
-Curse
-Yawn
-Tackle
-Growl

Vs. Geodude.
I used curse 6 times and my tackle Still did minimal damage.(maybe because he kept using defence curl). He finally got taken down by a tackle but after I use 3 or 4 potions. Then Solobro learnt water gun

Vs. Onix
Water gun. That was it.

Went through Mt. Moon and I'm outside Misty's Gym.

Solobro Lv. 23
Male
Quirky Nature
-Curse
-Yawn
-Confusion
-Water Gun

M'kay, so, once again, I got pretty far in the game. Last time, I was about to tackle the Lighthouse. That proved to be very little trouble. Jasmine instructed me to go to the pharmacy in Cianwood, so I headed on over there. Spotting a gym, I of course had to battle it. Poliwrath was tough to take down and he really liked paralyzing/using hypnosis, but Champ and I pulled through. His wife then gave me the Fly HM, so I was able to shorten the trip back to Olivine. Jasmine returned to the gym and some guy called me to tell me the Safari Zone was now open.

So, I headed towards the Safari Zone, beating up all the trainers along the way. I did the first test of the guy's little owner test before flying to Olivine to beat up Jasmine. NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO USE MAGNEMITES ANYMORE. They, of course, proceeded to paralyze Champ several times, and I eventually ran out of full/paralyze heals. Eventually, her Steeliz was all that was left, so I used a max potion my mum had bought me and killed off Steelix with one hit from Water Gun (still really waiting for Waterfall...). I then went off to explore Mahogany Town; the gym was blocked by some oaf, so I went to explore Lake Rage. There, I found a Red Gyrados. Wait...red? I look at my Gyrados, then back at the red one, then back at mine. Something weird's going on here...I decide to let Champ finish him off rather than catch it. I surf back to solid land and meet some guy in a cape with a Dragonite, and all I can think is 'I want one!'. He says that something weird is up with radio signals or something, so we go investigate some shop in town. DANG, THAT GUY MEANS BUSINESS, HYPER BEAMING A PERSON AND ALL. It turns out Team Rocket is up to some new tricks. After thrashing some Rockets around, I run into Chris, who apparently got beaten to a pulp by this Lance guy. Lance's coolness just went up another ten points, as if the cape and the whole USING HYPER BEAM ON A FELLOW HUMAN didn't make him cool enough. A few more Rockets later and this hideout is disbanded. Oh, and the Gym is open. About time!

Gym summary: DEWGONG + AQUA RING = JUST ANNOYING, IT WON'T SAVE YOU FROM ARCEUS' JUDGEMENT OR ANYTHING, OR CHAMP'S CRUNCH FOR THAT MATTER. With the Glacier Badge in hand, I leave the gym to find the eighth and final gym, except that Elm calls me, saying the Rockets have taken over the Radio Tower in Goldenrod. REALLY?! COULD THEY DO THIS SOME OTHER TIME, PLEASE? I GOT A QUEST TO BE LEAGUE CHAMPION GOING ON HERE.

More Rocket thrashing...and I'm almost done eradicating the little pests. Just three more to go, I think, and then we should be rid of these pests forever. Oh, by the way, Champ is at level 53 or something now. He knows Thrash, Water Gun, Ice Fang, and Crunch.

Alright, quick update on my challenge before I forget about it completely (school starts back up tomorrow). I defeated the rest of the Rockets and flew back to Mahogany to take the trip to Blackthorn. I had fun attempting to figure out the Ice Path once more and emerged from the cave on the Blackthorn side. I then decided to go tackle the Blackthorn gym. Okay, seriously, I hate Gyrados. And smokescreen. ANYWAY, I beat up Clair eventually, only having to use one max potion during the battle. Of course, she's too full of pride, so now I have to go tackle the Dragon's Den. And this is where I left off.

Champ, Level 57
Hardy @ Shell Bell
Ice Fang, Thrash, Waterfall, Crunch

Started the Platinum leg of the USC a few hours ago and here's my progress so far:

-Did the whole intro thing and hacked in a Nidoran-Whatever-the-male-sign-is
-Went through all the boring parts of the beginning of the game, beat rival, blah blah
-Received PokéDex and headed to Jubilife
-Got the Pokétch thing
-Beat rival again and headed to Oreburg
-Titan evolved into Nidorino
-Arrived there and went to the mine
-Met Roark
-Went to Gym and battled Roark; wasn't too tough thanks to Double Kick
-Traveled back to Jubilife and saved the Prof. from two Team Galactic freaks
-Journeyed north to Floaroma, then east to the Valley Windworks
-Beat the dude there, then beat his friends in the meadow
-Entered the Windworks and took out Mars, again thanks to Double Kick
-Went through the Eterna Forest
-Arrived in Eterna City and immediately entered the Gym
-Total PWNage thanks to Peck
-Entered the Galactic building and took down Jupiter
-Got a bike
-Got stuff from Dawn
-Saved at the entrance to Mt. Coronet

Now to catch a billion Cleffas to try to get a Moon Stone. Ugh.

Just get the Thief TM 46 from Eterna and use that. I'm pretty sure Nidorino can learn it and would make finding a Moon Stone (or any wild-hold item) a lot easier.

Quick update: passed the Elder's test, got the Rising Badge, used the Masterball Elm just gave me on Ho-oh, beat up a few trainers I had missed, headed east into Kanto, saved at entrance of Victory Road. Champ is now at level 62! That's ridiculous! He was at level 63 when I played through my Silver version ten years ago, and that was, essentially, a solo run because little kids can be dumb sometimes. I'm so proud of my little Champ. (:

Huh. I forgot about that method. But it's too late now, I got it the other way. It wasn't that hard actually, I only had to catch three before I found one. Apparently a 5% chance is the same as a 33% chance. XP

Anyways.
-Went through Mt. Coronet and got the Moons Stone
-Arrived in Hearthome City
-Went to Contest Dome and found Fantina
-Entered her Gym
-Ended up teaching Titan Thief because he only had two moves that could affect Ghost types, and one of them was a Poison type move (talk about irony)
-Beat Fantina, though it took a little while due to FREAKIN' CONFUSE RAY and got her badge
-Beat my rival
-Went to Solaceon Town and got HM05 in the ruins
-Traveled all the way to Veilstone and met with Dawn
-Titan learned Poison Jab, then I evolved him, at which time he learned Earth Power
-Entered Maylene's Gym and took her down with Peck and Earth Power, getting her badge
-Beat up the two Galactic freaks and got HM02
-Ran down to Pastoria
-Had a little fun with the Croagunk sign (Did anyone else have a Croagunk walk up and look at you the first time you stepped behind the sign? I did and I can't figure out if it's supposed to happen.)
-Battled and destroyed my rival again
-Taught Titan Shock Wave and spammed through the Gym
-Zapped Wake into a crisp to get his badge
-Witnessed Galactic bomb explosion
-Chased a Galactic freak and kicked his ass
-Got the Secretpotion from Cynthia
-Is currently returning to Hearthome City the long way for more exp.

That's all for now.
