A team full of Ivysaurs sounds pretty sweet right about now :3

And you like Miltank to jdthebud?

Azumarril sucks in Crystal :/ No Huge Power for Sweeping and no Thick Fat for bulk. Oh well, you still get OP Surfs in that game.

I don't know if someone can tolerate a run with the same Pokemon, and more so in tedious regions. But if you want to do it then hey, fine by me. Ok guys quick I'm doing a regular Run in HGSS and you guys get NICKNAMES. 3 of them are named already but I can just go to goldenrod and rename them.

Typhlosion -
Staraptor -
Dragonite -
Scyther -
Lanturn -
Kangaskhan/Milktank -

Ok so Vaporeon7 is going to be my Lanturn, cool.

Bug Catching COntest is unfair, I get 3rd place with a Scyther. While 2nd and 1st place goes to Kakuna and Metapod. >.> I didn't know that Cacoons are Superior to a Giant Praying Mantis.

Yeah it's weird. I always thought the Bug Catching Contest was all about the Pokemon you catch, with Scyther/Pinsir always being the winner. I know there's a formula for the score total as well. It's something like uh... Pokemon + Park Balls used + Level + Remaining HP + idk if you're Sydian or not. It's weird though. I'm pretty sure there's a formula on Bulbapedia for it. :P

Also just a totally random question: What's an awesome video recording program for the computer? I want anything not named Hypercam or Fraps. :) I might actually record one of my challenges, or at least the dexter one.

Not specifically since none of those Pokemon I particularly like, but if you do end up catching an Exeggcute/Bellsprout/Oddish name it after me, especially if you catch an Exeggcute. <3

Can't you only catch Kangaskhan in the Safari Zone or something? That would be a tough one to find, with it being so rare and all.
I want to do a solo Exeggcute/Oddish run now. It seems like it could be fun. :D

Typhlosion. :D

Also, I clicked on this and was like "um this isn't PGC wtf" and realized it got moved to the top of GPGD. @_@ Dunno why. I assume it just happened because of the description changed. But yeah. lol Also, about to move on to my next two Pokemon in team #3 to train. I'm thinking I'll go with Asy (Shinpora) and Emma (Kibago) next. :)

@ Syd: are you only doing two at a time?
@ chaos: you should name the Dragonite Ace, after karpman (I think, I can't keep up with all these name changes)

Also, as my 1,000th post approaches, I ask you. Should my 1,000th post be me saying "all right solo challenge, I've updated you" or should I just do that and make my 1,000th post "I just finished the very last monotype on Blue Version" since I'm only 3.5 away now, and I can keep editing my Ice post until I've beaten it. What do you think?

Blue Monotype Update for sure.

I don't like the change, I liked it better when Challenges was in the top of GPGD

I really don't like Dragonite all that much, I honestly thought the name sounded cool, which is why I used it.
If Scizor is still open, I'll take it, but I'd rather not have a Scyther bearing my name, if it isn't going to evolve.

I think I'm only going to have Scizor after game, because you get Metal Coat from the S.S Anne and I don't feeling stealing from Magnemites.

Besides in Johto Half of HG Scyther > Scizor being STAB Techni Wing Attack Kills everything. Once I beat the Elite Four I'll have access to Swords Dance and X-Scissor then I'll evolve it.

Myrrh, when I train a new team, I just take a pair along with 4 other really strong Pokemon (pretty much the ones that already made Hall of Fame) and I go to the double grass in Great Hall (where Pokemon are about level 60-56) and give one of the weaker Pokemon an Exp. Share. Then I use the stronger Pokemon (the party leader holds a Lucky Egg) to battle until that weaker Pokemon gets to 50. Then that level 50 Pokemon takes the second slot so that if I do get in a double battle, it actually gets to do something so I can get an idea of how it will be in battle. Then when it hits 60, I give it the Lucky Egg and put it at the head of the party. At 65, I go to the second Pokemon in that pair. Rinse and repeat. When my new party is all at level 65, I take them all to the same place and get them to level 70.

-wipes sweat from forehead- ^-^;

I'll be Kangaskhan, if it's not nicknamed yet. (I half-read all of the posts, xD)

Camstudio works well for that purpose. It's also free.

If Karpman still wants to be my Scizor (and tolerate Scyther half the game) here's my Team

Typhlosion - Sydian
Staraptor - Myrrh
Dragonite - Decade
Scizor - Karpman
Lanturn - Vaporeon7
Kangaskhan - Inferno

Sounds good.

@Chaos11011, I will be your Scyther/Scizor <3
@Alternative, Try procaster, that should work.

Lol So good news bad news and horrificly ugly news..

Good.. found Ruby and hacked in Charmander

Bad.. For some reason I have to believe this game is hacked cause when I picked torchic may had a treecko..

Horrificly ugly.. My hacked in charmanders broke Trochics every limb and resulted in a fail Nuzlocke..

Bad again.. I picked Mudkip so I didn't have this soo easy and I could probably catch a charmander and not die this time.. Turns out the person who hacked it hated Treecko or something cause after I battled may caught another hothead.. I save it started a new one with no saving to be introduced and Treecko was picked this time and sadly enough.. May had Treecko..

Anyways back to mudkips part.. though I hate water I guess their useful for surfing..
Charmander is making quick progress being level 25 before entering petalburg (grinding speed is amazing at Hoenn)

Okay, I was wondering if it was OK to restart the Johto Leg of the UMC I was doing. It's just kinda... impossible right now...
