Just get someone to hack the Pokemon into the game. Easy.

Thought I'd give a quick update on my progress.

Did the usual beginning stuff and received Tron. Went to route 103 and battled my rival. Obtained the Running Shoes and headed off. In Petalburg I helped Wally get his Ralts. Headed east some more.

Once in Rustboro I learn that the first gym up is Rock type. Smashing. Emerald has also seen it fit to give me a Bold Raichu. Double Smashing!

I decide to bypass this for now and head west to level up Tron some. At level 14 I tried the gym, it's a no go as her level 12 Geodude keeps using Harden and I can't seem to Tail Whip it enough to do a decent amount of damage. So I decide to go level up some more.

While out leveling I catch Jasper the Nincada and teach him Cut. At a level 18 I decide to do the gym again. Still getting my butt kicked by the first level 12 Geodude. So, at this point I'm stuck leveling up Tron until he can beat this gym.

I hate Geodude and Rock types so much now.

Tron the Bold Raichu: I guess I got the challenge I wanted.

That's hardly easy. Hacking an entirely new Pokemon into a game is a lot of work. But, there are hacks out there I believe that may already have Glaceon added to them.

Actually it is quite easy. I'd just replace a Pokemon you can't normally get in the game. It's easy. I just sent Kagami a VM to ask if they want me to do it.

I love this challenge. It's so easy, yet so hard.

I think I'll do this run with Deino/Zweilous/Hydreigon this time. I'll be doing this on my Black 2.

Alright, Volkner down. I have all 8 badges now. I find myself really bored of this challenge, so I may just push through to the end tonight. I'm never using a really strong Pokemon for a Solo ever again. Maybe something like Tentacruel...

Time for the first update! What's annoying about Black 2 is that you can't trade before the 1st gym, and since I can't cheat, I had to wait until after the first gym to get Deino.

- Started game. Name: Lite. Rival's name: Darke.

- Chose Oshawott as starter. God pwned by Darke in the first battle.

- Trained Oshawott to LVL 13 and took on Cheren. Won the fight. Got first Gym Badge.

- Was finally able to trade in the Deino. Nickname: Hydra.

- Am currently grinding Hydra with Audino fights.

Hydra

Species: Deino

I finally did it! No more sweeping everything I encounter!

I skipped most of the trainers between Sunnyshore City and the Pokemon League, because I was tired of sweeping everything and wanted my battle with the E4 to be more challenging. Barry proved mildly difficult primarily due to his Staraptor having Intimidate. But I managed to beat him on the second try. He was actually more challenging than most of the E4 to be honest.

So, the E4 were pretty easy. Notably, Lucius was the hardest, since I had no moves for Psychic Pokemon. I swept Flint with Earthquake and Bertha with Leaf Blade. As for the Bugsy wannabe, I was able to sweep everything but Vespiqueen for some reason. I even got a Critical hit on Scizor!

Cynthia was the real challenge. I had many close calls. But I got really lucky with Garchomp, who I managed to score a Critical on (Thank you Razor Claw and Psycho Cut). This dropped him to the red, but luckily he had a berry, or I would have had to deal with a Full Restored Garchomp. On top of that, he missed his Dragon Rush, which surely would have killed me as I was below half health by this point. After that the rest was easy.

I'm gonna take a break from this challenge for a while, since I got very bored towards the end. As I said earlier, if I do another, it will be with something like Tentacruel who has really low attacking power.

Time for an update. A lot's happened over the past day.

- After grinding Hydra up to level 18, made my way to Roxie and challenged her. I actually 1HKO'd all her pokes with Dragon Rage.

- After some more grinding, beat up Team Plasma and made my way to Castelia City. This is where things start to get harder.

- Hydra gets up to Level 25 or so, and I challenge Burgh after the Team Plasma scenario.

- Beat Burgh by the skin of my teeth, literally only having three HP left after the last of his pokes.

- Hydra makes her way up to Level 30-something as I make my way to Nimbasa City and train some more.

- Beat Elesa relatively easy. Surprisingly 1HKO'd her Zebstrika with Crunch.

- Caught two extra Pokemon to get past Charles the Heartbreaker, but only actually used Hydra in the rotation battle. Proceeded to deposit those Pokes in the PC pretty much forever.

- Got to Driftveil city. Trained up a little more against trainers to get to Level 40 or so, and proceeded to challenge Clay.

- This is where I hit a roadblock. After making it through his gym easily, proceeded to challenge him.

- The thing about Clay is his Excadrill. His first two Pokemon were easy and were both 1HKO'd or 2HKO'd with Dragon Pulse/Crunch, but then comes the Excadrill. This thing can 1HKO Hydra provided its Slash/Metal Claw attack is a critical hit, which it often is, and it can 2HKO her with Slash/Metal Claw/Bulldoze.

- So basically, it's back to square one. I'm currently training on Audinos to become stronger and get past Clay, possibly evolving Hydra in the process. Fingers crossed.

After leveling Tron up to level 20 I decided to try her gym again. I stock up on Potions and Super Potions (5 of each) and cave in and buy an 1 X Defense and 1 X Attack.

Starting off the battle I use both of the X items. After 3 Tail Whips and 4 Quick Attacks each both of her Geodude fall. Oddly enough neither of them used Defense Curl, go figure. Her Nosepass was a pain in the rear end. Just about every time I'd Tail Whip, it'd use Harden, seriously. After it getting healed by a Potion and an Oran Berry I managed to beat it. So yeah, my first badge has finally been obtained. 1/8.

I hate that gym and I'm not coming back til Tron knows at least Brick Break or something.

After all that excitement I go get Peeko and the Devon Goods back. Recieved the Letter and said Goods to go deliver, as well as the PokeNav and the Match Call. On my way out of town I took on Brendan. He falls rather easily. On a side note he has Torchic this go around, so type advantage for me.

In Dewford I take on Brawly's gym first. Nothing interesting happens and I get my second badge. 2/8. After I get Flash from the random hiker I teach it to Jasper and stumble my way through Dark Cave. Once the letter is delivered I stumble my way back out. On to Slateport.

In Slateport I take on everyone at the beach and nab the free Soda Pop (it might as well been free, it was so easy). Tron is now up to a level 25 at this point. After defeating two Team Aqua grunts the Goods are delivered. Also registered the resident stalker, Scott, into the Pokenav. Hooray I guess.

In a wasted trip back to Rustburo I pick up the Exp. Share and Repeat Ball. Heading north from Slateport I register Prof. Birch before entering the Trick House. The Rare Candy I get gets fed right to Tron after I get it. Up to level 29. After battling and looting to the west, I head east to battle Brendan again. Once beaten I get an item I probably won't use.

Most of the way to Mauville is spent being paralyzed cause I'm stingy and don't want to use any of my berrys. In an odd move I haven't bought anything since Rustburo so I've got no status healing things I want to use. Upon entering Mauville I get the bike and forget that I'm paralyzed. So I go fight Wally. His Ralts falls to a single Thunderbolt. The resident stalker also seemed to have watched the match.

Next time I update maybe I'll have gotten farther.

Not too much happened today, since I have a lot of homework and I've hit another roadblock.

- After a bit of training, Hydra learned Dragon Rush, so I decided to head back to the gym and try for the millionth time.

- With an incredible combination of Moomoo Milks, a critical hit, and a Dragon Rush, Hydra was able to 1HKO Excadrill!

- Collected my fifth Gym Badge and made my way to the Pokemon World Tournament.

- Easily swept through Darke and Cheren, but came to another roadblock with Colress. This guy uses only Steel types, and all my moves are ineffective against his Pokes.

- Colress wiped the floor with me thrice before I finally decided I needed some more training.

- Now that I have the fifth gym badge, gonna try and evolve Hydra before returning to the tournament to kick Colress's ass.

I usually do beat Steven but for some reason when ever I beat the champion in Pokemon emerald it doesn't save after entering me in the Hall of Fame, and when I start the game back up it either doesn't give me the option to continue or I have to start back where I last saved.

This goes for everyone soloing on Pokemon Emerald, Steven is optional. The challenge ends when you defeat Wallace. I could've sworn I took that off a long time ago... Well I guess I didn't so I'll go do that now.

Sorry for the misunderstanding and thank you for pointing out my mistake so I can correct it.

Here's a solution to your little problem, James

If you're using Visual Boy Advanced, just set your Save Type to Automatic Flash 128k. That should allow in-game saving and for you to be able to start back in your room after E4 so you can do the post-E4 content. And it kinda prevents random save losses. And for the "Internal battery has run dry"error, just set your emulator to use real clock so you can still enjoy time-based events such as day/night evolutions.
