Not sure how it works in B/W2 since I never got around to playing those.
True, but restarting the game obviously changes your C-gear and it takes weeks to remove the old one from Global (haven't bothered with it for a few months) and even then it'd take days to get probably the things I'd be aiming for. :<

Back to planning now... I know I could just wing it, but I'd just end up using my old-reliable teams and no making it challenging. (Money is not an issue in Unova >.> )

Question: I don't like using the Ghost Types from Hoenn, but want a Ghost Type Pokemon on my team. Is it alright if I trade over a Gastly from my Fire Red version?


One more thing: I've got my Final Exams starting in a week's time and it goes to the 20th of next month. Just thought I'd let you know that I can't start the Challenge until then.

Not quite... rules are rules and they apply to every single challenger. trading is only allowed in order to evolve. So you'll have to use whatever Ghost Types you can find in Hoenn. It's a challenge after all and it's meant to get people out of their comfort zone and to make them use Pokémon they wouldn't normally use.

Aye Aye Captain!!! lol

In that case, my ship will be: Sharpedo


My Prospective Team:

Blaziken (Capt. Jack)
Sharpedo (Davy Jones)
Tropius (Columbus)
Donphan (Mr. Gibbs)
Mightyena (Sir Walter)
Dustclops (Dutchman)

Like I said though, because of my exams, I won't be able to start until after the 20th of next month.

One more thing: Can I use HM slaves until I assemble my team?

I finished Ice Age 2 days ago.




Flygon: Not as good as I thought he would be. He died too quickly to the E4.
Marshtomp: As good as I remember.
Rhyhorn: Meh.
Walrein: Useful. Just a shame you get a Spheal so late.
Claydol: Also meh.
Tentacruel: The star of my team. She was insanely useful and could hold her own because of the large number of Zigzagoons I trained against.

I just wanted to say I'm now on the Stone Age, and I've beaten Roxanne, Brawly and Wattson. I'm grinding my team, which is currently Loudred, Aron, Roselia, Oddish, Graveler and Torkoal.

Now, this question might be a bit out of place but, since I have brand new powerhouse-masterblaster PC I'd ask if it's okay: are people actually watching video forms of challenge updates here? I've seen quite a few times people simply recording their game and, well, honestly I'd work perfectly for me. It just bugs me whether it's worth whole effort. I just wanted to ask, if it's okay to ask yo.

When people leave a video link, I usually watch them, but that being said, not many people leave a video; the only one I know who does that is jdthebud. I might start recording my gameplay if people watch it.

Oh wow, it's been ages since I've been on this challenge. I've had non-stop papers, test and projects since spring break so I haven't been able to do ANYTHING. I'll have to get into the groove of doing the challenge again but I'll update this post with my progress once I figure out what I've been doing.

I restarted the game on Stone Age.

I now have Linoone, Swellow, Aron, Combusken and Gloom, with the last spot saved for a Relicanth.

I never realised how good Linoone and Swellow were. I have 2 badges, and am grinding for Wattson.

Edit: I beat Wattson, Flannery, Norman and am grinding for Flannery. My team is a good one, I think:

Linoone - Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Headbutt, Surf
Swellow - Wing Attack, Steel Wing, Facade, Quick Attack
Lairon - Iron Tail, Metal Claw, Mud Slap, Double-Edge
Combusken - Flamethrower, Peck, Double Kick, Ember
Gloom - Solar Beam, Sunny Day, Giga Drain, Toxic
(Saved for Relicanth)

My only problem is I open with Linoone, Thunderbolt her Pelipper and Swellow, and then he faints on Skarmory. I send out Combusken which is too slow, and gets Aerial-Aced off the board. Lairon is too slow to be useful, and if I do get to KO it, Altaria is out, and Linoone (my main counter) is gone.

Advice?

Edit 2: I beat Winona. I caught a Vulpix on Mount Pyre, and returned to Fiery Path (name?) to collect the Fire Stone. I swapped Combusken for this Vulpix because Combusken kind of sucked.

As it stands, I have Gloom, Ninetales, Linoone, Swellow and Lairon.

Lairon's seeming to take forever to evolve. I knew it would, but even so.

NeedeSile

Facing Red now.

Overview of :
Angel tanks all the hits like a pro. Gravellers selfdestruct to escape him. It doesn't help, because he can take about five of those before I need to worry at all.
WrathClaws is indisputably the strongest in terms of raw power.
NeedeSile has a wide variety of attacks to take stuff out with. Also Double Kick. I love that attack.
BurningRed is cool. She has Spore, so even if her other moves aren't as great as they could be she can still tear them apart. Usually we just use Slash, though.
ThylaLeos hits pretty hard too, though mostly in Sp.Att instead of Attack.
Sun misses pretty often, and has some pretty shoddy HP (15 points lower than BR), but he's amazing anyway, boasting the second highest attack (although it's dwarfed by WC's whopping 301 attack by over sixty points.) He boasts the highest defence by just as much difference.

HP, Angel, 344 points; Attack, WC, 301; Defence, Sun, 271; SpA, TL, 255; SDef, TL, 214 (beating BR by three points); Sp, TL, 235

-~-~-
Okay, just to check something, I just fought Red (But I'll do it properly... or take it seriously, anyway) by sending out Sun, using Defence curl, and then using Rollout.
That was pretty funny.
(Pika: QA, Sun: DC; P: QA, S: RO KO, Espeon out, Espe: Psychic, S:RO OHKO, VSaur out, S:RO OHKO, Blastoise out, S:RO OHKO, Snorlax out, S:RO OHKO, Charizard out, RO finishes, CZ: Flamethrower, S:RO OHKO)
Now let's do this properly.

Angel took out Pikachu with a combined usage of Glare, Screech, Red REPEATEDLY USING FULL RESTORES, Rage, and RAGE
BR took Espeon with Crit Slash, and WC followed up taking out Venusaur with one too.
Rollout from Sun on Snorlax, followed by Strengths from NS to take out Blastoise.
Thyla got into a fire fight with Charizard and came out on top easy.
...
I Guess... We're Done?

Hmmm...
TEAMMMM
There, a picture of my team. Okay, NOW that one is done *ponders doing another*

I'm grinding for the E4, and I changed my Stone Age team a tad.

Linoone, Exploud, Aggron, Dodrio, Relicanth (useless pokemon) and Ninetales.

I can get to Glacia no problem, but when I do, the Pokemon I rely on is Aggron, because Iron Tail, but his typing does me no favours.

Alas.

I'm determined to win by this evening.

Go to Ceruelan City and up to Route 24 and win against Rival
Trained on my way to Bill

Picked up Torchic as my starter.
Tried to skip as much as possible so I could use that stuff later.
Beat the Gym and saved Peeko.
Caught a Nincada for nice HM-slaving
Caught an Aron (Aggron's Base Def is 180)
Backtracking to level it up a bit.
Easily kicked Brawley's ass.
On to Slateport.
Caught a Gulpin, who happened to have a big pearl.
First time ever I actually catch a pokémon that's holding anything other than a berry.
Defeated next Gym without any trouble at all.
Caught a Seviper with Bite :D
Defeated Team Magma, defeated Flannery, picked up Claw Fossil and Revived it

Next stop would be Dad's Gym. But I'll need to do some grinding first,
so off to the Trick House!!

Current Team:

- Anorith lvl 20 (Tough looking bug type)
- Seviper lvl 26 (Pokémon with Bite + Poison Type)
- Combusken lvl 31 (Fire Type)
- Swalot lvl 28 (Poison Type)
- Aron lvl 30 (Base Def <116)

EDIT:

Team I used to defeat my dad:

Anorith lvl 25
Seviper lvl 27
Swalot lvl 28
Aron lvl 31
Combusken lvl 31

Actually it was all just Aron o.O
Metal Claw raised my attack to the point where I could 2HKO his Pokémon
I did use a lot of potions in between though cause Slaking was tough...

Now I finally have Surf, but no one on my team can actually learn it.
Time to look for a new HM-slave...
Oh nevermind I already had a Marill in my box.
My team might get some reshaping in the future...

EDIT2:
Was wondering if Crunch also counts as Bite, since it's the same, just stronger. My Seviper now has both Crunch and Bite
