Little late posting this but I actually started it a few days back. My partner is playing alongside me; we're playing black and white.

Slightly altered the rules: All our nicknames are famous pairings, and a few of the pokemon were traded from HG/SS as there was no choice either of us fancied for some of the options.

My team: [playing black]
Spoiler:

The present: Tirtouga. Named Clyde. [Holding everstone]

The valentine: Charmander. Named Kat. [Holding everstone]

The Attraction: Glameow. Named Jessie. [Holding razor claw]

The Duo: Miltank. Named Barbie. [Holding shell bell]

The Pink: Gorebyss. Named She Ra. [Holding mystic water]

The Flower: Bulbasaur. Named Pebble. [Holding miracle seed]


annnnnnd

Her Team: [Playing white]
Spoiler:

The present: Archen. Named Bonnie. [Holding everstone]

The valentine: Scolipede. Named Kitty. [Holding poison barb]

The Attraction: Woobat. Named James. [[Holding everstone]

The Duo: Tauros. Named Ken. [Holding scope lense]

The Pink: Slowbro. Named He Man. [Holding shell bell]

The Flower: Bulbasaur. Named BamBam. [Holding miracle seed]



Together, we have each just beaten the 6th gym, and it's going pretty well.

I'll be withdrawing from the challenge, as I don't really have the time for this one right now seeing as it ends at the end of the month.

The only Pokemon you were allowed to trade in though was your Valentine Pokemon...

Third update! I've just gotten my sixth badge; here are the details if you're interested:
Spoiler:
-Beat Cheren on Route 5, as well as the two kids Alder made us battle.
-Crossed the Driftveil Drawbridge into the city itself, tried our first triple battle against Charles the heartbreaker (here, I learned Acupressure can affect your teammates too!), cleared Route 6, and tracked down Zinzolin's group of Plasma flunkies in the Cold Storage.
-Took on Clay at the Driftveil Gym. Krokorok was a bit of a pain because of Swagger, but it didn't last too long. He actually sent out Excadrill next and knocked out Pear (Maractus) thanks to Swagger (at least, I think it was Pear). I sent out Cadeau (Pignite), hoping to take advantage of the steel-type half, but of course Excadrill was too quick. So I lost Cadeau like right away. But... Sydian (Petilil) came in to save the day! :D Leech Seed, Sleep Powder, Growth, Giga Drain... I think she used them all to bring down the beast. And Palpitoad didn't stand a chance. With that, we won the Quake Badge!

-Although it shouldn't have, Bianca's appearance as I was leaving Driftveil sorta surprised me for some reason. :/ Anyways, she was simple enough, and we got HM Fly after the battle.
-Chargestone Cave, oh geez, Chargestone Cave! I've never been this annoyed in previous ventures through this place. I had terrible luck in this cave; so many of my moves missed, and a Ferroseed even got a 5-hit Pin Missile with three crits once, followed by a 4-hit one. Ferroseed are evil. Eventually, we made our way through, battled N, and reached Mistralton City.
-Cleared Route 7, scaled Celestial Tower, and returned to Mistralton.
-Mistralton Gym was next. Going into this challenge, Skyla was the gym leader I feared the most, seeing as half of my full team is weak to Flying. Anyways, Pear learned Petal Dance in this gym (as required for "The Flower"), so that's another objective down! ^-^ The battle with Skyla actually went better than expected! Magenta (Munna) managed to land a Hypnosis on her Swoobat, so I quickly switched to Cadeau and began a Rollout. Thankfully, Swoobat slept long enough for Rollout to do its thing, and it fell in two hits. Unfezant came out next and attacked with a powerful Air Slash, but Cadeau wasn't quite out yet. Rollout did her in in one hit. Unfortunately, Swanna didn't allow it to continue any longer and Cadeau was knocked out. I sent Magenta out again, hoping to put it to sleep, but a crit Aerial Ace took her out (she was at about half HP). So Passion (Audino) comes out to face Swanna (hmmm, I just had a thought that I could've named him Mr.Passion...). Just an exchange of attacks, with me spamming Secret Power. One of them paralyzed Swanna, so that was great! Eventually, we prevailed and won the Jet Badge!

-Got the TM for Aerial Ace and taught it to Pear.

I really am not feeling starting all over again but if I did, I may do it on Crystal with Blastoise (valentine), Nidoking (Duo), Jolteon (Eevee gift), Miltank (pink), Rapidash (attraction), and Bellossom (flower). This is if I get to it though because life is busyy

Other than that, I've been too lazy to train my Present. I'll work on that... hopefully. (Or it will just sit in my party at an unreasonably low level since egg shields are always nice...)

Fourth update! Eek, only about four days left! I've been so distracted lately (thanks for that, Fire Emblem: Awakening... ¬_¬). Anyways, I've just gotten my eighth badge; here are some important-ish details I can remember:
Spoiler:
-Battled Cheren outside Twist Mountain, and Alder gave us HM03 - Surf.
-Passed through Twist Mountain and found ourselves in Icirrus City.
-Found out Audino could learn Surf, so taught it to Passion. Would've been pretty useful in Twist Mountain, but Dig sufficed. Anyways, we cleared Route 8 and the Moor of Icirrus before entering the gym.
-Brycen wasn't a particularly difficult gym battle. Magenta (Munna) was able to take down Vanillish with Hypnosis, Calm Mind, and Psychic. But it wasn't quite enough damage against Beartic, so Magenta fainted from Icicle Crash. Cadeau (Pignite) swept the rest with Flame Charge and Brick Break, I believe, earning us the Freeze Badge. That makes seven! ^-^

-In Dragonspiral Tower, we met the last member of our team, Soul the Golett taking the position of "The Duo." The first Golett fainted because I overestimated my attack, so we ended up with the second one, which has... Klutz. >_< Would've definitely preferred Iron Fist, but oh well, I'll take on the added challenge! Also, I couldn't pass up the silly opportunity to have a fourth Brave member on the team (but this time, it's actually a great nature).
-Scaled Dragonspiral Tower and ventured through the Relic Castle before I'm sent to Opelucid for information on Zekrom.
-Now that Soul's in my party, I did my usual world exploration with Surf. (I'm way too OCD about getting everything I can to do a speed run, haha!) Hey, the Thunderbolt and Rock Slide TMs could be useful! ^-^ And that got Soul caught up to the rest of the team in terms of levels, and it also evolved at some point.
-Once again, Bianca's appearance outside the Tubeline Bridge startled me. >_< This was actually a tough-ish battle! Solely because of that Serperior... Coil + Overgrow + Leaf Blade is deadly. Pear (Maractus) significantly weakened it, activating Overgrow... Fortunately, it later activated Cadeau's (Pignite) Blaze, so we were able to finish it off, despite the rain.
-Made our way over to Opelucid City and cleared Route 10 as well. In the process, I evolved Magenta into a Musharna. I also agonized over the decision of whether or not to teach Leaf Storm to Sydian (Petilil). In the end, I didn't.
-Given the slight trouble I've had with Fraxure, I was a bit worried about the Iris battle. However... I was really lucky and won the Legend Badge in a flawless victory! I led with Magenta and tried to put her Fraxure to sleep with Hypnosis. It missed, allowing Fraxure to set up with two Dragon Dances (very, very worrying). The second Hypnosis hit its mark, and I used the time to set up with two Calm Minds, hoping that she wouldn't wake up. Then, Quick Claw activated, allowing me to hit with a Stored Power that was at effectively 200 base power even without STAB! Druddigon also fell to a Quick Claw Stored Power, and Haxorus didn't even require Quick Claw to activate. So, OHKOs to all!

-Professor Aurea Juniper pointed us towards the League and gave us a Master Ball, which I'm probably just gonna use on Zekky because I don't want to put in the extra effort to weaken it. >_<

Nimbous vs Blastoise,

I think I will drop out of this challenge. I can't find the time to work on it, and even if I did, I wouldn't be able to complete it. 4th gen has to be probably the slowest gen, and since my computer is catatonic, that means no speed up button. What I was at was grinding Finneon levels, and Finneon just outright sucks. It was taking forever to train that thing up.

So that is why I'm unable to do this challenge.

-Defeated Cheren on Route 10. Can't remember what happened, as usual.
-Went through the Badge Check Gates and reached Victory Road. It was quite a harrowing road, but we eventually managed to make it through (defeating Terrakion in a single hit in the process, using Pear's [Maractus] Giga Drain).
-Once we made it to the League, I took out my flying Tranquill, explored the rest of Victory Road, and returned to Mistralton to delete Soul's (Golurk) Strength and Passion's (Audino) Surf. We also went to Anville Town to get a few more PP Ups by trading in some Star Pieces.
-Did a bit of grinding at Victory Road, finishing up with the nine Rare Candies I had, putting everyone at level 52. Cadeau learned Flare Blitz and finally evolved into an Emboar.
-Entered the Pokémon League and decided to go for Grimsley first, since I have a good advantage with Cadeau. Brick Break and Flame Charge took care of Scrafty, after a Full Restore was used on it. Krookodile came out next and Intimidated Cadeau; I didn't want to risk it, so I switched to Sydian (Petilil). Believe it or not, this isn't the first time I've used a NFE against the Elite Four on White (I still had a Mienfoo in my first file). Anyways, she took care of that Krookodile with no problem, and Bisharp came out next. Cadeau made quick work of it with two Flame Charges, in preparation for his speedy Liepard. After a wasted turn with Fake Out, a single Brick Break finished off the battle.
-Marshal was the next member we took on. Soul took care of everything himself, with some healing items tossed in here and there. Throh's Payback was the only non-not-very-effective attack, so it wasn't too bad. Not really that much to say about this battle.
-Caitlin was next, and man was this battle fun! It started off as Magenta (Musharna) against her Reuniclus. I think Magenta put it to sleep with Hypnosis on her second try. Reuniclus just spammed Thunder the entire time. I was able to set up three Calm Minds before it woke up and got in another Thunder. This one paralyzed, and through the magic of Synchronize, it also became paralyzed. Two Charge Beams and two Special Attack raises later, both of us used a Full Restore. Now, I unleash Stored Power (180 base power, +5 Special Attack, STAB, and not very effective) for a OHKO! She sends out her own Musharna, which falls the same way. Sigilyph comes out next, and Shadow Ball does pitiful damage. Magenta retaliates with a OHKO Charge Beam, which brings Special Attack up to +6! Gothitelle sets up a Calm Mind, but with Stored Power now at effectively 400 base power even after Calm Mind and resistance, it doesn't help. Hahaha, I was laughing like the whole time! :D
-After such a great battle, it's time to come to the one that always gave me the most trouble (and also my favorite), Shauntal. She threw me off when she began with Chandelure (must've gotten mixed up with Ghetsis's Cofagrigus), and that's where the trouble began. I think I had Pear in front, so I switched to Passion. Unfortunately, her Chandelure was faster, so it got in two deadly Fire Blasts before I could Attract it, knocking Passion out. I decided to bring Pear back out to do some damage with Sucker Punch, but that's all that happened before Fire Blast. Fortunately, Cadeau outsped it and was able to land a Head Smash, finally bringing down the beast! She sent out her Golurk next. I think I switched for Soul, who took an Earthquake. But hers was faster, so a Shadow Punch took down Soul. Wow, I played stupidly. I brought out Sydian, who felled that giant pretty easily. I don't quite remember what happened with Cofagrigus, but I think it was a joint effort between Sydian and Cadeau. Jellicent was definitely Sydian's. Cursed Body annoyingly disabled Giga Drain, which allowed her to actually use a Full Restore, but still, no problem! And with that, the Elite Four are finished!

-Went through N's Castle and healed the party. Caught Zekky with the Master Ball.
-The battle with N definitely could've gone better. I forgot to switch my lead, so I had Pear out against his Reshiram. Bad start. Switched immediately to Soul, who took two Fusion Flares and fainted. I brought in Cadeau for Head Smash, but Reshi took me by surprise with Extrasensory. Head Smash wasn't quite enough though, so Cadeau fainted from another Extrasensory. I think I brought Pear in next for a free Sucker Punch, putting it in the red. A crit Fusion Flare knocked him out. So I brought out Magenta. He used a Full Restore and fell asleep due to Hypnosis. Two Calm Minds, and it awoke. But it couldn't do much damage, so I put it to sleep once again. I think it was another two Calm Minds before it woke up and fired off a Hyper Beam for pathetic damage. Again, Hypnosis put it to sleep, and I got off the final two Calm Minds and a Quick Claw Stored Power (260 base power + bonuses!) for a OHKO. His Sturdy Carracosta endured a Charge Beam and retaliated with a Crunch. Full Restore, repeat. It got off a Waterfall before fainting. Archeops was the next biggest problem. Crunch does a lot of damage, so I used an X Defend :O and healing items. I believe a Stored Power ended it (should be 280 now because of X Defend). For him, it was all downhill from here. Klinklang fainted from Charge Beam (didn't want to risk it being Zoroark). Zoroark came out next, in undisguised form. Got Night Slash'd, then a Charge Beam. Vanilluxe felt the horror of Stored Power. Once again, Magenta takes all the experience.

-And now to Dennis Ghetsis himself. I switched Pear for Cadeau as Cofagrigus used Toxic. My plan was to raise Speed with Flame Charge--enough to outspeed Hydreigon and take it out quickly. Unfortunately, Cofagrigus is very defensive and has Psychic. With Flame Charge and Flare Blitz, I was able to bring it down to low health (darn Mummy replacing Blaze). Cadeau fell, and I brought out Soul. He used a Full Restore, but Shadow Punches took it down (after Soul got Toxic'd). Seismitoad was next, so I switched for Pear as it Rain Danced. It used Sludge Wave, but a lethal Giga Drain managed to heal almost all the damage. Next came the dreaded Hydreigon! Dragon Pulse did a lot of damage, and Pear Petal Danced for about a quarter damage. Then... he used Surf (I guess because I was at low health, and it was raining still) to heal Pear, thanks to Water Absorb! Petal Dance got another shot at him, bringing him down to the yellow. I guess he learned his lesson, because he used Focus Blast to finish off Pear next turn. Passion came out next, dodged a Focus Blast (thanks, BrightPowder!), and fired off a Blizzard. Not quite enough! Another round of Focus Blast fail and Blizzard finished off that terror! So much experience! Bouffalant was next. A Head Charge and Return left it with about half HP. I returned for a poisoned Soul, who was unaffected by Head Charge. After an Earthquake exchange, Bouffalant was down. Eelektross took its place, and Crunched Soul into oblivion. I brought out Sydian, who endured a Flamethrower and got off a successful Leech Seed. Quickly, I returned for Passion who took an attack (I love Regenerator!), whatever it was. He was also able to tank a Wild Charge and brought down Eelektross with Return, with some help from Leech Seed, I think. That brings Ghetsis down to one: Bisharp. Because both Sydian and Passion were low on health, I brought out Magenta to try to put it to sleep. I only had one shot, but Hypnosis missed, unfortunately. I used a Max Revive on Cadeau as Bisharp defeated Magenta. Then Cadeau came in to end the battle with a Brick Break. And with that, Ghetsis's plans are foiled!

Ahhhhh~ I enjoyed this challenge! I'm glad I was able to finish it before the deadline. It took almost 34 hours of game time--a lot faster than usual, but I'm definitely not a speedrunner. I liked training all these pokémon I've never trained before, and even bringing in a NFE into the League was awesome. The final battles were great; I loved how everybody played a role. Only Pear didn't get any level ups from the final battles, but he was instrumental in taking down that nightmarish Hydreigon. ^-^

Well, I think I'm gonna have to bow out. I've tried to beat the Elite Four about 5 times now. I got really close on the last one! But I'm running out of money, and with less than an hour left, don't have the time to level up enough to beat the elite four and Steven without relying on Hyper Potions and Revives, and then go win the cute contests. Not to mention the fact that I'm not really awake enough to think strategically, lol.

It's been a lot of fun though! And it's the closest I've gotten to finishing a challenge. I've gotten quite attached to my little Valentines I'll probably still try to finish the challenge on my own.
