Not how you do it. You don't get to pick your types. ;(

Take Dark, Flying, Water, Fire, Electric, and Rock. Now you pick from your list. Double check the first post, and if you have questions, let me know.

Well, it's been a month since my last update. So here's Update #2, now with five badges.
Spoiler:
  • Went up to Route 4. Was super surprised to see how different it was from White 2's Route 4. :O
  • Beat Colress. I don't remember the battle, but I imagine that Tepig was especially helpful there.
  • Cleared both Route 4 and the Desert Resort. Sigilyph are annoying... >_<
  • Started my Join Avenue off with an antique shop.
  • Reached Nimbasa and did some sightseeing around the main part of the city.
  • Cleared Routes 16 and 5, as well as the Lostlorn Forest.
  • Teamed up with Rosa and defeated Ingo and Emmet (hehe, "I am Emmet").
  • Visited Anville Town, and did the lost Pansage mini-sidequest thing.
  • Went into the amusement park. Got Yancy's lost Xtransceiver. Rode the roller coaster.
  • Nimbasa Gym. "GIMME WHAT I NEED!" Yeah, I love this gym theme! ^-^ Anyways, Elesa was pretty tricky. Volt Switching everywhere! Since Archen and Squirtle are at a disadvantage here, I don't think they got any screen time (unless I used Archen for a little bit against Emolga, which I can't recall). Tepig did a bit of damage, but I switched out because of Static. Shaymin carried the team in this battle (I actually think this may have been its first gym battle!), and won us the Bolt Badge! ^-^

  • Rode the Ferris Wheel with Beauty December, who seems like a spy or something? Or someone undercover? A rich girl who escaped from her manor? I have no idea what her deal is.
  • Trounced the Plasma goons as I'm exiting the city.
  • Battled and defeated the Heartbreaker, Charles, in a Rotation Battle. Haha, I'd love to see him have a conversation with Emmet!
  • Crossed the Driftveil Drawbridge (a.k.a. the Charizard Bridge, which I don't see).
  • Explored Driftveil City, Route 6, and as far as I could reach in Chargestone Cave.
  • Driftveil Gym. I really like this theme too. ^-^ Anyways, I explored every platform to make sure I missed no trainer. And then on to Clay. His Krokorok got in a Torment before falling to a crit Water Pulse from Squirtle. That Torment was really annoying, I later found. Sandslash was up next. I got in a Skull Bash that did like 1/8 damage, and Clay is impressed at the strength. I laughed. The Defense increase was kinda helpful, actually. It helped Squirtle survive, even after Sandslash got Hyper Potion'd, and let out a Torrent-boosted Water Pulse to knock it out. Would've done it with less hassle and less risk if Torment wasn't active, but oh well. Excadrill was last, and at this point, Squirtle was too low on health, so I brought in Shaymin, who immediately took a crit Metal Claw. We still did a number on Excadrill using Magical Leaf and Leech Seed, but I switched out to Tepig (Shaymin's HP was getting low and Bulldoze lowered its Speed), anticipating a Metal Claw. And it was... Metal Claw! So I next switched out to Archen, thinking he'd use a ground attack. But nope, Rock Slide was a OHKO. D: Then Shaymin returned, with its Speed intact, to deliver the finishing blow for our Quake Badge!
  • We're gonna visit the PWT next time!

I'll rejoin this challenge, because I've cleared out my White2 and I'm just sitting there saved at the starter choosing.
(Can't come up with a team set-up I'd like to use...)

Name: Rewy
Game: White2 - Challenge mode

I'll re-do my favorites list a little and just put one type on each, since the more I think about 6 different for one type, I end up going by generations and then picking one ultimate favorite for those... Then it's no longer "actual favorites".
Anyhow, list:

Spoiler:
  • Normal - Sawsbuck
  • Fire - Typhlosion
  • Water - Kingdra
  • Grass - Serperior (it was a tie with Lilligant and Whimsicott)
  • Electric - Eelektross
  • Flying - Archeops
  • Bug - Scolipede
  • Poison - Nidoking
  • Ghost - Chandelure
  • Psychic - Gallade
  • Dark - Bisharp
  • Fighting - Breloom
  • Steel - Scizor
  • Rock - Lairon
  • Ground - Flygon
  • Ice - Froslass

Black Version 2

Badges: 6/8

After I beat Clay, I blasted through the PWT tutorial. Then I cut through to Chargestone Cave, and made it to Mistralton City. Before challenging the Gym, I explored Route 7 and cleared out the Celestial Tower. I finally got the Lucky Egg, which made it possible for me to catch up with the game's average level, which I was very much below for a long time. Finally evolved Yamask. Now I only have a few levels until Deino is my only NFE.

Skyla was pretty easy. Cleaned up the Gym real fast.

Whoop! Thank you Necrum \o/

So, I get Serperior, Scolipede, Lairon, Breloom, Gallade and Chandelure

Guess I'll get started by going to look for eggs to get a Shroomish and Ralts.
----------------------------

Update#1
Spoiler:
Chose Snivy as a starter and started my journey.
Caught a Venipede on my way to the ranch after a bit of searching. :3
Started to train them up before battling my Rival. (And realized I'll have so much "fun" being weak to Fire and Ice)
Rescued a puppy and went back to town where Alder kidnapped me for some lessons.
Eventually beat Cheren and got my C-gear.
Traded over eggs for Shroomish and Ralts and went on to explore while trying to hatch them. (I had pre-checked that the Ralts will be male...)
And that's about it for the first update...

Team:
Verde / Snivy
lvl 14 | Sassy
Vine Whip | Leer | Tackle | Growth

Absolem / Venipede
lvl 15 | Adamant
Rollout | Protect | Pursuit | Screech

Egg x 2


Update#2
Been playing much during server maintenance downtimes on other games. Trying not to go off and catch everything in the dex.
So currently I'm making my way through the Reversal Mountain. I've had more or less fun.
Always having a heart attack when my Rival shows up and I don't remember if he's there to challenge me. His fire pig and poultry are my weaknesses. ;_;
Anyhow. I visited the Abandoned house and Mistralton Cave for items and grinding.
Only missing one party member anymore which I sadly noticed I can only get after Hall of Fame. So...I guess I'll probably be backtracking a few times after sending over an egg and starting to train up. Also am I allowed to pass along during that a Dawn Stone? Since I can't apparently get it until Dreamyard (can't get to black City even though I'd have the tower key).

Team:
Verde / Serperior
lvl 44 | Sassy
Coil | Leaf Blade | Giga Drain | Return

Absolem / Scolipede
lvl 42 | Adamant
Rock Slide | Bulldoze | Megahorn | Protect

Shuyin / Breloom
lvl 44 | Quirky
Seed Bomb | Force Palm | Thunder Punch | Return

Lumiere / Chandelure
lvl 41 | Modest
Shadow Ball | Flame Burst | Energy Ball | Confuse Ray

Jiyan / Kirlia
lvl 39 | Naughty
Psychic | Heal Pulse | Magical Leaf | Teleport

Egg ?

Ok, so that would give me: Espeon, Yanmega, Arcanine, Gliscor, Blaziken, and Archeops.

It looks like I will have to trade in a Yanma, Torchic, and Archen. Unfortunately, I can't get Yanma or Archen until I beat the game

Derrick, instead of Yanma and Archen, pick something else that's on your Bug and Rock list to replace them. :) The challenge would be over by the time you can get them, assuming you can't trade. So yeah. ~

After I had that posted I realised that I can get an Aron in Mistralton Cave (I had gone through it with repel on, because all the encounters in a dark cave without flash). Welp... So I went back there to catch one instead of trading over and egg. I'm still curious about that Dawn Stone. I traded one over and used it sort of because there's really no other way on getting one unless you Coil a lot on the GTS to level up that Avenue and having great luck...

I got caught up with the plasma-freezer and am trying to decide who to pit against the Shadow Triad. All these Ice pokemon everywhere were killing my poor team.
Thankfully so many Moomoo milks were used... There should be a medal for that.

Can I not trade eggs for them? I've already done that for the 3 pokemon I can't get. I know the rule says I can only trade if I can't get them in the game at all, but does that mean I can't trade if they are available in the aftergame?

EDIT: OK, I reread the rule, and I see what you mean. I have decided to replace Yanmega with Galvantula and Archeops with Aggron

Fun fact about Aggron - it can Surf. O-o Even though it has horrible Sp.Atk it's just hilarious to see it use that... A floating steel-rock thing.

Mini update:

Starting my treck to the Victory Road... passage... cave thing. At least it's better than in the first games. That cave with all the Durant was annoying.

You can trade in eggs. When you said you weren't able to get them, I felt like you implied you had no way to trade, so I apologize for the confusion. You can trade them or go with what you swapped them for if you'd like, since that was my mistake for misunderstanding.

I'll just go back to Yanmega and Archeops to keep with the spirit of the challenge.

Update #1:

- Sped through everything with Oshawott before getting the C-Gear.
- Traded in Torchic, Archen, and Yanma eggs
- Ran around for a while till Torchic and Yanma hatched
- Nicknamed Torchic Moegami and Yanmega Yanbon
- Trained them both up to Lv. 10
- Went ahead to Virbank City, and finally my Archen hatched!
- Nicknamed Archen Charche
- Caught a Growlithe in Virbank Complex, and nicknamed it Lithero
- Fought the 2 normal trainers in Virbank Gym
- Went and evolved Moegami, then started catching Yanbon and Charche up

Thank you very much! For both the list and the compliment! That make my team:

1. Ludicolo
2. Eelektross
3. Glaceon
4. Ferrothorn
5. Sawsbuck
6. Ariados

Not too bad a team, I'm guessing I can catch the pre-evolutions of these Pokemon, as long as I evolve them as soon as I can?

Yes, you can catch the pre-evos of course. And you don't have to evolve them ASAP, but as long as you beat the champion with those, you're good. :)
