And first update on Pokemon Crystal (Yes, I decided to use Crystal despite crappy movesets)

So, I caught a Spinarak (Fodder, originally planned to be replaced by Venomoth but not so sure anymore) and trained it up. Now that he's a permanent team member, I'm going to rename him Docori II (Numbers aren't allowed in Gen 2) and also picked up a Zubat (Daclus). I grinded both to level 12 and challenged Falkner. Daclus beat Falkner single-handedly simply by using Bite repeatedly. I then went south, got the Old Rod, and picked up Tetrid II (Tentacool)

So, my team is going to be full of substitutes.
Docori the Venomoth -> Docori II the Ariados
Tetrid the Tentacruel -> Tetrid II the Tentacruel
Lina the Nidoqueen -> (As of yet unnamed) the Nidoking
Mito the Muk -> Mito II the Weezing
And two newcomers, an as yet unnamed Arbok and Daclus the Crobat.

Update #3 on Ruby.

Lol, I'm doing this while watching the Super Bowl.

Started at the beginning of Route 119 on my way to Fortree City.

Spoiler:
- Found Team Magme blocking a bridge, so I went into the Weather Institute.
- Rescued the scientists and didn't get Castform. Taught Facade to Saul.
- Went across the bridge and was almost run over by May.


Sweep by Sual with Wing Attack and Facade.

- Taught Fly to Saul, then went up to Fortree City.
- Went east to the bridge where Steven was.
- Got the Devon Scope and used it to get in the gym.
- Taught Ice Beam and Shock Wave to Barb and Thunderbolt to Lazy.


Zagger used Swords Dance, then Crush Claw took care of Swellow, then fell to Skarmory. Lazy came in and beat Skarmory and Pelliper with Thunderbolt, then fell to Altaria. Barb came in with Ice Beam for the win.

- Made my way to Lilycove City.
- And May was blocking the store entrance...shopping, maybe? No, battling!


She is crap in this game...sweep again by Saul.

- Went down past Mt. Pyre to fight the trainers down there. Lazy started to evolve, but I stopped him.
- Climbed My Pyre an the inside and outside. Got a Red Orb.
- Flew to Slateport where the sun got stolen, then back to Lilycove to beat the Hideout.
- Beat the Hideout.
- Surfed to Mossdeep City, and caught a Tentacool on the way as a Surf, Dive, and Waterfall slave.
- After beating the trainers north of Mossdeep, I challenged the gym.
- Barb evolved into Exploud in the gym.


Lazy and Barb both went down to Luntone's Calm Mind Psychics after taking down Solrock, so Saul and Zagger finished up with Crush Claw and Steel Wing.

- Taught Dive and Surf to Tentacool, then saved on the shore of Mossdeep City.


Gonna go Diving after the submarine next.

Team Norm:

Lazy the Adamant Vigiroth, ♂ - L39
Ability: Vital Spirit
Moves: Strength, Yawn, Thunderbolt, Slack Off

Saul the Sassy Swellow, ♂ - L40
Ability: Guts

Got through the Victory Road and beat my rival Miyavi.
Prior to challenging anyone, I got rid of Taemin's Cut and replaced it with Rock Slide, as well as taught him Flare Blitz. We got through Landon(?) fairly easily, though Taemin fainted and had to be replaced by Minho. Had the most issues with Bertha and had to soft reset a few times, but thankfully Taemin had Grass Knot and her Pokemon were heavy for extra damage. Flint was easy since his type was the same as mine and I had a move to give him a weakness. The most trouble I'll have is with the Psychic guy with Taemin's Psychic weakness, and Jinguk only being at lvl 50.

Current Team:

Taemin/Infernape lvl 60
Rock Slide | Grass Knot | Flare Blitz | Close Combat

Minho/Rapidash lvl 56
Take Down | Bounce | Flare Blitz | Solar Beam

Jinguk/Houndoom lvl 50
Toxic | Flame Thrower | Bite | Sunny Day

I lost to Cynthia the first time, so I sold a bunch of the items I accrued throughout the game to buy Revival Herbs, Revives, Hyper Potions, and Full Restores.

Challenged the Elite 4 again and when we got to Cynthia:
Started with Jinguk who used Flamethrower and Dark Pulse. When Spiritomb died, Cynthia switched to Milotic. I had Jinguk use Sunny Day before dying and used Taemin to fight him/her off. Togekiss killed him with Air Slash. Had Jinguk to use Sunny Day and Toxic before dying again. Revived Taemin and had him use Flare Blitz twice. Had to sacrifice and revive, sacrifice and revive to survive Garchomp long enough for him to run out of PP for Earthquake and Dragon Rush. Had Taemin Flare Blitz him/her and Flare Blitz Roseraide.

Got inducted to the Hall of Fame, watched the credits roll, and turned the emulator off when the screen said "Fin" and my game saved itself.

On to Unova/Isshu!

Normal UMC update

Just gonna say it, 3rd generation is total garbage

I grinded a small bit, but then started using watson as a training dummy for his voltorb and magnemite so ziggy could level up a bit. I got a few lucky misses from him and finished his magneton with headbutt. garbage gym. But, the worst is over. Continuing my journey through hoenn...

I left the gym and used rock smash to reunite wallys cousin with her boyfriend and got strength. After that, i grinded all of my pokes and continued walking the path. I made it to route 114 and caught slasher, the female zangoose. I grinded him to level 19 and entered the cave. I caught team magma taking the metorite and i watched them run away. I picked up the moonstone and left. I made my way back to the volcano and confronted maxie. The funny thing about this battle, i used my brand new slasher and smoked his team, using 2 super potions. she was at level 22, and leveled up after camerupt. I continued through the path and got to lavaridge town and challenged the gym right away. It was a really easy battle. Slasher almost took out her whole team, but slash couldn't take out her torkoal in one shot, so ziggy had to finish the job with headbutt.

I went to my "Dads" gym and challenged it.. Slasher took out everyone of the trainers with one slash.. with help of swords dance, anyways. Norman, however, Slasher died at first. I used ziggys headbutt through both slakings, until the one that used focus punch was almost dead, then i switched out for slasher, who was revived by treecko, and swords danced during the loafing, and slashed both vigorath and slaking.

I walked back to mauville and surfed across to the other half of hoenn. I got Kit-Kat to level 31, having her learn covet and gave her the moonstone, getting me a delcatty. i made my way to the weather station where i found team magma who infiltrated it. I took them out easily and got a castform.. its normal, but dont want it. i stored it in my box and left the weather station. i run into my rival and beat her easily because of Ziggys surf, saving me from her combusken. The others died in a matter of shots from either Kit-Kat or Slasher. I got to fortree and found steven. i killed a kelceon and got the devon scope. I cleared the lizards from the area and entered the gym. I fought Winona and beat her easily thanks to Kit-Kats shockwave.

I traveled to mt. Pyre where i saw team magma go.. and thats it for stupid garbage hoenn for now

My Current Team...

Well, it can be, especially against Wattson, but I think Zangoose makes up for it lol. Swords Dance + Return/Dig is ownage against Steven, as you will see here, for it's time for my...

Final Update (#5) on Ruby!

So I started in Victory Road.

Spoiler:
- Made it through easily enough, and at the end was a kid named Wally.


Not much to say here, his team isn't that great, even Magneton didn't put up much of a fight.

- After I grinded my team to L52-54, I got some of the items around Sinnoh, like the Silk Scarf and NeverMeltIce.
- I also bought a Flamethrower TM from the Game Corner and maxed out the EVs of my team.
- Prior to the Elite Four, Lazy and Barb were at L52, Zagger was at L53, and Saul was at L54 and knocking on L55.

- So, first up was Sidney. :


Well, he was underleveled, so it didn't take much. Switched Lazy out and in a couple times due to his ability, and I didn't even heal after this fight. Barb and Lazy did most of the work.

- Phoebe with her Ghosts was next. I debated teaching someone Shadow Ball, and it would've helped due to it's physical typing, but I didn't do it:


Pheobe is a real pain with her Dusclops, who are hard to kill and have that annoying Pressure ability. I eventually made it through with Saul coming on at the end to take down her final Dusclops.

- Before this one, I taught Zagger Return (for Crush Claw) and also taught Barb Strength to replace the less powerful Secret Power. Glacia and her Ice Pokemon are a pain because of Hail and Sheer Cold:


Lost once due to Lazy being my last Pokemon, which gave Walrein 3 opportunities to fire Sheer Cold since Thunderbolt didn't 2HKO him, and at last it hit. The second time around, I was able to get Zagger a Swords Dance, and he finished off the second Saleo, then OHKOed Glalie and Walrein with Return.

- Drake's Dragons are up next:


Lazy led and took out Shelgon and Altaria, then fell to Flygon. Barb came on with three Ice Beams left, and OHKOed both Flygons with 2 of em. He then fell to Salamance without being able to fire off the last one. Zagger came out and was only able to hurt Salamence, and was 2HKOed by Dragon Claw. Saul was able to get a few Facades in, then after he was hit by Dragon Claw, Salamence started using Fly. Well, Saul is faster, so he just used Fly along with him, and eventually took Salamence down.

- Prior to fighting Steven, I taught Flamethrower to Barb (replaced Shock Wave) and Focus Punch to Lazy (replaced Thunderbolt). I also used Rare Candies to get everyone level with Saul's L55. Now I was ready for a fierce fight.


I did lose once here because even a triple Swords Danced Zagger using Dig couldn't OHKO Cradily (left him with like 15 HP). So here's the winning ticket:

Barb led, and 2HKOed Skarmory with Flamethrower. Armaldo came out, so I switched to Lazy and used Yawn. After a couple AncientPowers, Armaldo fell asleep, and Lazy used Focus Punch. Steven used a Full Restore, so I Yawned again, and this time 2HKOed him with Earthquake, only having 10 HP left. Claydol came out and took down Lazy while he was loafing around. I sent out Zagger, and he used 3 Swords Dances while Claydol used 2 Earthquakes and Reflect. Return then OHKOed Claydol. Aggron was up next, and Zagger used Dig for the OHKO while he used Thunder. Cradily came out, and instead of using Dig this time, I was able to OHKO with Return! 153/2 = 76.5 > 66 (Dig with Soft Sand)! Zagger also grew to L56 from a flat L55, lol. Anyway, Metagross was Steven's final Pokemon, and I accidentally had Zagger use Return instead of Dig, and Metagross didn't die and killed Zagger with Psychic. Saul came out and couldn't do anything and went down meekly. He was OHKOed with Hyper Beam. Now Barb was my last hope, and she was poisoned by Skarmory's Toxic earlier, but Flamethrower was enough to finish off Metagross!


Hall of Fame/Trainer Card pics:



On to Sinnoh with Platinum!

Team Norm (Final):

Barb the Hardy Exploud, ♀ - L55 @ NeverMeltIce
Ability: Soundproof
Moves: Strength, Flamethrower, Hyper Beam, Ice Beam

Lazy the Adamant Slaking, ♂ - L55 @ Magnet
Ability: Truant
Moves: Return, Earthquake, Focus Punch, Yawn

Saul the Sassy Swellow, ♂ - L55 @ Silk Scarf
Ability: Guts
Moves: Fly, Aerial Ace, Facade, Steel Wing

Zagger the Bashful Zangoose, ♂ - L56 @ Soft Sand
Ability: Immunity
Moves: Return, Quick Attack, Swords Dance, Dig

HM slaves:

Tentacool, ♂ - L18 (Surf, Dive, and Waterfall)

Treeko, ♂ - L12 (Cut, Flash, Rock Smash, and Strength)

Most Valuable Pokemon:
Hoenn MVP: Zagger. Saul was my key member in the early going, but when Zagger came on, he was able to beat a couple overleveled gym leaders with ease due to Swords Dance, and was my best closer by far in the second half. Honorable Mention: Barb. She was the only one to stand up to Wattson, the toughest gym leader by far.
Elite Four MVP: Zagger. Zagger was the reason I won against Glacia and Steven, my two hardest foes. Honorable Mention: Saul. He played key roles against Phoebe and Drake, two opponents that Zagger was useless against. Saul also beat several of Sidney's team, although that was more due to type matchups.
Steven MVP: Zagger. Without a doubt, Zagger was the reason I won. A triple Swords Dance allowed him to almost sweep the board, only failing because of my mistake in having him use Return against Metagross.

Started this on Pokemon Red, Going to choose grass type.

Bulbasaur got picked, defeated Gary, delivered Oak's parcel and now in the first route training to level 8.

Upon reaching Pewter City, Bulba was level 11. Went into Brock's gym and battled his little friend. Knowing from past experience I defeated the trainer, healed and trained to level 13 just outside the forest. Once level 13, I fought Brock and with 2 vine whips on each pokemon, he was finished

Falkner
__________

So Falkner wasn't much of a challenge giving that we both used flying types so it was pretty an evenly matched battle, with the advantage of me having higher levels.
First up is Falkner's Pidgey, Level 7, not too much of a threat against my Level 15 Pidgey and after a couple of speedy Quick Attacks, Pidgey was taken down.

Now onto Falkers second and final Pokémon, Pidgeotto Level 9, this thing is more of a threat as it has the advantage with Mud-Slap which is super effective against flying types and also lowers accuracy, but luckily this case didn't arrise as I defeated it quickly with 3 Quick Attacks giving it the chance to use only 2 Gusts!

Defeated Falkner and obtained the Zephyr Badge & TM 31!



Overall this was a fairly easy battle which didn't take long at all!
Onto Azalea Town & Bugsy!


The Team


Pidgey Lv. 15


Zubat Lv. 10



_______________________________________________
Bugsy
__________

So after alot of training and kicking some Team Rocket butt and Pidgey evolving into Pidgeotto! it's time to face the 2nd Gym Leader of Johto, Bugsy he specilises in Bug-Type which is an advantage for my flying types!
Bugsy's first Pokemon is Metapod Level 14 against Zubat Level 18, Metapod didn't pose too much as a threat to me with a limited move set of Harden and Tackle, which only took one supersonic and a couple of Bites before it was knocked out!
Bugsy's second Pokémon too send out is Scyther Level 16, so I decided to switch to Pidgeotto Level 18 as Zubat dosen't know any flying type moves yet. So Scyther started off using FuryCutter but that didn't last for long as Pidgeottos first gust dealed more than half the damage and with another Gust Scyther was defeated within seconds, now that I've taken down Bugsy's main Pokémon, he only has one left, and I think it's safe to say that I've won this battle.
Bugsy's third and final Pokémon too be sent out is Kakuna Level 14, again it didn't pose much of a thread with a limited moveset similar to Metapod, I switched back to Zubat for some exp and with, again a Supersonic and a coupe of Bites, Kakuna was defeated, thus giving me victory!

I defeated Bugsy and obtained the Hive Badge and TM49,


Overall, this battle was again.. well easy, next onto Goldenrod City and Whithey... gulp.

The Team

Pidgeotto Lv. 18


Zubat Lv. 18

Update time!: I beat up all the Rocket's hanging around in Slowpoke Well (who wants to hang around in a dark, damp well? to each their own, I guess...). Also, I beat up most of the gym trainers in the Azeala Gym. Just one more battle before I heal up and take on Bugsy.

I beat Red for the first time in my life. Feels good


Before I move on to Emerald (got one for cheap on Ebay that should arrive this week) a little synopsis for future Ground type users on Soulsilver:


Team Soulsilver:



Loverboy the Nidoking, Level 73

Moves
Spoiler:
Thrash
Megahorn
Earthpower
Rockslide


Overview
Spoiler:
Very useful, like in Leafgreen. The fact that you can teach it so many different attacks really makes it shine. Stats are okay but at least it doesn’t have any gaping weaknesses like Rhydon (see below). Held its own against some of my most difficult opponents, especially against Red where it managed to kill both Charizard and Snorlax.
If you read my previous updates, I also had Attract on it for a while. It was fun, but very gimmicky. E4 seem to have some sort of hack going because it rarely did anything against them.




Bowser the Quagsire, Level 72

Moves
Spoiler:
Earthquake
Surf
Slam
Waterfall
Overview

Spoiler:
Like I mentioned many times, I should have made sure it had the water absorbing power. Other than that, it was a very solid player that managed to take a lot of hits and dish it out equally. I should have taught it a damaging Ice move too, but I had that covered by two more Pokés so it was fine like this.
Never like it before but I’ve found some new respect for it.




Tinkerbell the Mamoswine, Level 74


Moves
Spoiler:
Earthquake
Dig
Ice Fang
Rock Climb


Overview
Spoiler:
Hell yeah. This was the first Pokémon where I actually gave a damn about the nature and it paid off. Tinkerbell came with a crazy good attack score and swept away pretty much anything I put before it. OHKOed almost the entire team of Lance and also murdered Red’s Pikachu and Venusaur in one hit.




Sputnik the Rhydon, Level 74

Moves
Spoiler:
Ice Fang
Thunder Fang
Fire Fang
Crunch


Overview
Spoiler:
Very hit and miss. Thanks to its nature it had a really strong attack and killed anything with a type disadvantage in a maximum of two hits.
The problem is its abysmal Special Defense and typing which makes it really vulnerable against the very types its attacks are effective against. Any special water, grass or psychic attack killed it in one hit. Physical attacks weren’t so much of a problem, but water and grass still hurt because of the 4x Weakness.
I liked using it and it often produced great results, but it wasn’t as consistently useful as the others. In the three hardest battles of the game, Lance (for the first time), Sabrina and Red, it was killed in one hit and didn’t do anything.



HM Slaves:
Spoiler:
Lugia, Red Gyarados and Bibbles the Totodile
Bravely took hit after hit so others could be revived. Red especially was one big slugging match of reviving and healing again. Bibbles was cursed so many times by my Rival and the Ghost gym leader, I bet it’s shaking all the time in the darkness of Box 1



Most Valuable Pokémon:
Spoiler:
Close tie between Tinkerbell and Loverboy. But in the end, everyone was awesome. Ground types are just great, no matter what



Short Soulsilver review
Spoiler:
This was the first time I played Soulsilver and I liked it a lot. The remakes were done just as good as Leafgreen and Firered before them. The remake of the Kanto cities were really great. I’ll restart Soulsilver now with a more balanced team and then I’ll really start exploring it



So much for that, I’ll update as soon as my Emerald arrives from the ebay-bloke.

Cheers,
Peter

whitney
__________

Ok, so you all know that Whitney is a pain in the a**, with her devious Miltanks, Rollout, Milkdrink, Attack & Stomp combination, so I wasn't surprised that I didn't get it the first time round it did however take me less attempts than expected, I defeated her on the fourth attempt I thought that It would take more than ten attempts, especially with me at a disadvantage of using Flying types. So after three failed attempts I decided to go and battle a few trainers to get my Pokémons levels up abit, whilst doing this, Zubat evolved into Golbat at Level 22, anyway onto the battle.

First Pokémon sent out is Clefairy Level 18, this is Whitneys first Pokémon and isn't that hard to take down, only thing you need to be aware of is it's Metronome because it can produce some powerful attacks, but It didn't have time to do that as it only took me 2/3 hits to defeat it
Whitney's final Pokémon is Miltank Level 20, this thing is a pain, Rollout & Milk Drink are a deadly mix, but luckily with Golbats Supersonic, Miltank didn't get a chance to hit which was very lucky and gave me room to throw in a few Bites and won without any damage dealt to any of my Pokémon!

Overall, this battle was fairly difficult as expected.

I obtained the Plain Badge and TM45... after Whitney stopped sobbing of course,



anyway.. onto Ecruteak City & Morty!


The Team

Pidgeotto Lv. 23


Golbat Lv. 23
