I personally think Hoenn is the shortest region, I always finish Hoenn games within a couple of hours.
My levels are kind of high because I only used 2 Pokemon, that's probably a reason I finished so fast.

I screencapped(yes, supercard can do that) my team, now I have to find where they are, I'll put them up when I find them.

I found them.


I'll do my Water mono next, I'll do them in this order: Diamond, Blue, Silver, Black 2, Sapphire.

Finally, Update #2 on my Grass monotype run (HeartGold - 6 badges):
Spoiler:

It's been a bit since I last updated, so I don't remember too many details from right after Whitney, but...

-Got to Ecruteak.
-Took out all trainers from Olivine's lighthouse to the Lake of Rage. I think evolutions happened - Weepinbell, Skiploom, Gloom. Don't remember if I had Parasect yet.
-Beat rival; don't really remember that battle.
-Ecruteak gym... ugh, Morty! Another tough gym battle. I almost stalled out his Gengar's Shadow Balls, but then my Bayleef got critted, and that was the end.
-Tried battling Morty again. This time, I think he Hyper Potion'd his Gastly. And I got a Leech Seed off on Gengar. But that Hypnosis Haunter was really annoying! I think at one point, three of my pokémon were asleep since I like switching out so that Dream Eater hits one that's awake. I believe Leech Seed took this one down. And the last Haunter wasn't much of a problem. So we finally got the Fog Badge! Not as bad as Bugsy, but I think this one was a close call.

-Needed a Surfer, so I went back to the Slowpoke Well for a, well, Slowpoke. >_< Taught it Surf and Strength.
-Got to Cianwood. And a Jumpluff.
-Beat Eusine, not too difficult.
-Cianwood gym. I actually wasn't expecting Chuck to be too tough to beat. Got a Leech Seed off on Primeape before Double Team got really annoying. Had to sacrifice my Jumpluff to get that in there. Darn Rock Slide. Poliwrath though... that Body Slam is scarily strong! And a badly-timed Focus Punch crit on my Bayleef right as I was healing with Synthesis (I swear, poor Chicory's a crit magnet. D: ). Things seemed to go downhill from there (he always seems to use Focus Punch only when I'm not attacking him), but we managed to win the Storm Badge. I think a combination of PoisonPowder, Leech Seed (?), and attacks did it in.

-Went back to Olivine and cured Amphy.
-Olivine gym. Probably the gym battle that went the best (maybe aside from Falkner's). Well, not at first. Jasmine's Magnemite was annoyingly lucky. My attacks kept missing, and it got a crit Thunderbolt. So I lost Sunkern that way. But my Parasect avenged him. Steelix... I think I used Spore, and switched out for my Jumpluff for a Leech Seed. When it woke up, Sleep Powder. Switched back to my Parasect for Rock Smashing. Steelix did wake up once, but Iron Tail missed. It eventually went down, and I don't think it dealt any damage. The last Magnemite was no problem at all, and we won the Mineral Badge. Simple!

-Explored the cliffs and did Safari Zone stuff.
-Doing my Surf/Strength exploration currently. I forgot to do this before.
-Did the Bug-Catching contest and just won a Sun Stone! :D
-Going back to the Safari Zone because Baoba called. Don't remember if I get anything out of this, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Hey guys, sorry for the inactivity, but between school, karate, Boy Scouts, and the new White 2, I've had my hands full. Plus, I can't find my LeafGreen game or my DS Lite to play it. So, for now, I'm stuck. I think I'll start a new challenge while I search. The next challenge on my list, if you recall, was Electric, so I should do that one next. It's kinda shocking! (Bad pun!) Anyway, I'll play a LeafGreen emulator (my Poison challenge was on the LeafGreen cartridge (I may as well just start over on the emulator) so....). I'll be back with an update on both. Bye!

Guess it's finally time for an update on my Unova section of Elec-Mono:

Ultimate Elec-Mono Challenge:White2

- Started file, named myself Nate and my rival Hugh

- Chose Oshawott for an extra challenge against Hugh

- Made my way to Floccesy Ranch and caught a Mareep

- Did the usual events and headed back to Aspertia Gym
- Managed to beat Cheren with just a Mareep and obtained the
Basic Badge

- Headed to Virbank City and entered the Virbank Complex

- Caught a Male Elekid named "Livewire" and a Magnemite named "Magnet Man", then I decided to bench Mareep because I just used one in my first run of Black 2 back in October

- Entered the Virbank Gym and easily beat Roxie thanks to Magnemite thus netting me the
Toxic Badge

- Did the Pokestar event then took the ship to Castelia City

- Did the Sewer event then caught a Male Eevee named "Jagged"

- Trained a bit then entered Castelia Gym

- Had a rough time with Burgh but once again Magnemite saved the day giving me the
Insect Badge

- Fought Colress and made my way to Nimbasa City

- Found a Thunderstone and evolved Eevee into Jolteon

- Caught a Female Emolga and nicknamed it "Emonga" because I hate Emolga and didn't feel like giving it a nickname, I just wanted one because it was part Flying


Right now I'm just training up a bit and then it's off to beat Elesa, which I hope is easier done then said...

-The two Geodudes were fairly easy but Nosepass was a pain.
- Resorted to using Treeko and Taillow as fodder so I could heal Colada.

-Then did the second Devon task and the May battle.
-Boarded the boat to Dewford Town and saved when I got there.

Update on Ultimate Monotype Challenge (Poison).

Update #2 on Black 2.

  • Trained my team up some more on the trainers around Nimbasa City, then took on the gym.
  • Inside the gym, Pendra evolved into Scolipede!
  • Taught Pendra Dig and dominated Elesa with it.
  • Caught Compactor the Trubbish on Route 16.
  • Continued on to Driftveil City, and Count evolved into Crobat!
  • Challenged the Driftveil gym, and after Clay defeated me once, I was able to beat Excadrill with Pendra's Dig.
  • After winning the Driftveil Tournament at the PWT, I helped Cheren and Gorman with Team Plasma.
  • On Route 6, I caught Portobello the Foongus, then got Surf HM from Cheren.
  • Did some Surf exporing in Mistralton Cave and the Castelia Sewers.
  • Played some Battle Subway and got a bunch of BP to buy vitamins.
  • Continued on to Chargestone Cave, and while inside, Deadhead evolved into Weezing!
  • Reached Mistralton City and met Prof. Juniper, then went up to Route 7, where Compactor evolved into Garbodor!
  • Scaled Celestial Tower and rang the bell, then took on the gym.
  • Skyla took my whole team to defeat (Skarmory was really tough!), although Pendra was able to do a lot of damage with Rock Slide.
  • Took the plane to Lentimas Town, and after teaching Deadhead Dark Pulse at the Move Tutor, I saved the game there.

Hey guys, I'm back with another Poison update! (Btw, this is take three of trying to post this)

Update #1: A New Challenge
Spoiler:

What happened this time:
Spoiler:
I started by naming myself Jacob, my rival Gary, and picking a Bulbasaur, consequently naming it Saur. I lost to Gary the first battle, and skipped the second battle. I almost caught a Weedle, then decided against it. I swept through Brock's gym with ease, finally resting in Pewter City with one badge.


The team:
Spoiler:
Saur the Lv. 15 Bulbasaur
Male
Ability: Overgrow
Nature: Brave
Moves:
Tackle
Sleep Powder
Leech Seed
Vine Whip


That's all for now. I am using screenshots instead of listing the information for my team, to show honesty and because I thought the concept was cool. (EDIT: The screenshots did not want to work with me so ignore this last sentence.) Anyway, my next update will be that of my Electric challenge, since I decided to juggle challenges. But, I will start that later, because I am starting to work on a parkour map for Minecraft (anyone who wants it, I'll give you the link when I'm done). Peace!

Time for another update:

Ultimate Elec-Mono: White2

- Finished level grinding and entered Nimbasa Gym
- Easily beat Elesa and obtained the
Bolt Badge

- Crossed the bridge over to Driftveil and skipped over to Chargestone Cave

- Caught a male Joltik named "BigShpider" and a female Tynamo named "Ellie"

- Level grinded for Clay and evolved Magneton into Magnezone

- Went back to Driftveil Gym and narrowly made it to Clay, but was soundly defeated by his Excadrill

- Left to level grind some more and evolved Joltik into Galvantula
- Returned to Clay and somehow managed to pull of a miracle victory netting me the
Quake Badge

- Did the PWT and Team Plasma event then made my way through Chargestone Cave to Mistralton
- Zapped my way through Mistralton Gym, evolving Tynamo and destroying Skyla earning me the
Jet Badge


One question, when I do my Sapphire section of my Ice-Mono challenge, since there are only two Ice Pokemon to use, can I just hack them both in at the start or should I just hack one and wait for the other at the end of the game?

Since no Dark type pokemon can be obtained before the 3rd gym in Crystal, does the "starter" have to be a Dark type or can it be a pokemon that evolves into a Dark type before the 3rd gym?

For types such as Dragon and Ice, you will be forced to hack in a Pokemon at the start of the game. It doesn't have to be Snorunt or Spheal, just an ice type that isn't, really overpowered I guess

You can only hack in one, and it can be either Spheal or Snorunt (I would go with Spheal).

Since no Dark type pokemon can be obtained before the 3rd gym in Crystal, does the "starter" have to be a Dark type or can it be a pokemon that evolves into a Dark type before the 3rd gym?
The pokemon you hack in needs to either be dark or evolve into a dark Pokemon. I would go with Houndour, Murkrow, or Larvitar, since they aren't available unitl Kanto. You would then be able to use Umbreon and Sneasel before Kanto as well.


Generally speaking, when hacking in a Pokemon when you are allowed, use Pokemon that are in the Regional Pokedex.

Hey thanks for answering my question, I kinda figured I could only do the one, but I was definitely gonna pick Spheal because Walrein kicks so much ass!

Update on my fire run in red:

Currently on the way to Fuschia (is that right?)
Charizard seems to be destroying everything in its way at the moment

Caught a growlithe, currently training both my Flareon and Growlithe before going to face Koga.
Saved on the route after killing Snorlax.

TEAM:
Inferno the Charizard (Level 44; Slash, Mega Punch, Ember, Dig)
Bomber the Flareon (Level 34; Tackle, Ember, Quick attack, Double-Edge)
Blazed the Growlithe (Level 35; Body Slam, Ember, Swift, Roar)

Updating on Fire Red Fire Mono

I finally beat Misty (OMG WHY SO HARD) and Surge.

I now have a level 35 Charmeleon on my way to the rock tunnel. He will be a freaking Charizard before I get out.
