Stiles., Walrein was a giant help to me when I played through Ruby. It was the best choice of Pokemon to get through Drake out of all the ones I had.

--

I had a lot of playtime to catch up on things, though my in-game timer shows a longer playtime because I kept the game running while eating supper.

Ch'Ding did indeed help me catch quite a few Pokemon. I doubled the amount captured in my Pokedex as I ran through places that I had already gone through. With several new Pokemon chilling in my PC boxes, the team headed to Cycling Road. For a while, I trained Val up into a Poison-type killing machine against the same few trainers, and then we moved on for some more experience. And money!

It was only a brief stop in Fuchsia City to rest and stock up on Ultra Balls before we flew back to Lavender Town and headed south along Route 12, Silent Bridge, and that maze of fence. The rest of the team got to enjoy some battles, gaining experience and earning enough money to get enough coins for a beautiful Shadow Ball TM. Val loves her new move, using it to take down the random Psychic trainers in Koga's gym. She pretty much single-handedly took on that entire gym herself, but Angel was also used. He had a little bit of trouble against Koga's Muk until Andy reminded him to use Surf to get past Muk's Acid Armor. The fifth badge was now ours!

To Saffron City we go! Unable to do anything else thanks to all the Rockets, our first goal was the Silph Company dungeon. Those warp tiles would drive me insane, so we're following a guide to get through the building using the least amount of warp tiles. And gaining more experience. And money! Because we need one more TM and then the team is pretty much perfect.

Once Ender learns Slash. Boy needs to catch up with the others!

Team:
Angel the Nidoking - level 44
Ender the Charizard - level 41
Valentine the Clefable - level 48
Andy the Raichu - level 42
Do I even have to list Ch'Ding at this point?

Bahh. I hate the Victory Road in R/S/E. So tedious. Well, we battled our friend Wally who all of a sudden got really strong and got a ton of new Pokemon since last time we met. He was pretty easy. We then made our way through the cave battling the strong trainers along the way. Man, some of them are a pain. They're good for training though. The wild Pokemon here stink though. Not much variety imo. Kept my repels on.

I beat all the trainers, made it out of Victory Road, and made it to the Pokemon League. I think I will train some more before going in. I find the Elite Four in Hoenn to be the hardest, (omfg Drake always destroys me), so I want to be prepared.

The sexy team:


Swampert Level 50


Linoone Level 49


Bellossom Level 48


Xatu Level 45


Castform 45


Sealeo Level 43

"Silph Co. saved by random trainer. Declares Clefable 'Awesome.'"

After saving Silph Co from Team Rocket, my stronger team of Pokemon were ready to take on Sabrina's Gym. Ender also took on the Fighting Dojo, and we chose Hitmonlee for our prize. Safely tucking Hitmonlee into the PC, we continued on our badge quest to Sabrina's Gym, where Val pretty much dominated the entire place. The sixth badge was an easy victory.

Because we're lazy, instead of traveling through the Seafoam Islands to get to Cinnabar, we just headed south from Pallet Town. Andy got in some good training for the first time in a while. All those Water types ready for the Thunderbolting. On Cinnabar Island, we dropped of the Dome Fossil to get it revived (and I keep forgetting to pick it up again). The Pokemon Mansion was waiting for us, but at this point on Thursday night, it was actually 2:30 Friday morning, so we decided to head to sleep and take on the Pokemon Mansion on Friday.

Or Saturday. We got through the maze of the mansion, taking on Burglars and Scientists in preparation for Blaine's Gym. Even before we picked up the secret key, Angel was ready for the challenge. He and Val worked together to get through Blaine's Gym, testing ourselves on really simple Pokemon knowledge. The fight against Blaine was a little difficult. His Arcanine got in a few good hits on Angel, but we managed to pull through. As soon as I stepped out of the Gym to heal my battered team, Bill appeared and asked if I wanted to spend time with him. Not now, Bill. Not now.

Ch'Ding helped by flying us back to Viridian City to get our final badge!

Every Pokemon on the team (except Ch'Ding for obvious reasons) fought in the last Gym. But again it was the team of Angel and Val to take on Giovanni. Rhyhorn falls easily to Surf, of course. And now we have all eight badges. Victory Road is the final goal, where I'll do some training in preparations for the Elite Four and the battle for Championship!

Team:
Angel the Nidoking - level 51
Andy the Raichu - level 47
Valentine the Clefable - level 52
Ender the Charizard - level 46

Wow! Well that month went fast. Been so busy, but found some time to play more Emerald.

So, I defeated Sidney and Phoebe pretty easily. Now, stupid me, I was so obsessed with beating Drake and making sure I had something to take down his dragons, I completely overlooked the fact I had nothing on my team to easily take care of Glacia's ice types >.< Really wish I invested time into getting a fire type. So Glacia was a struggle. We pulled through though. Good news is that Sealeo evolved and I easily defeated Drake though! Thank you, Walrein n_n

Annnnd thats where I left off. The champ Mr. Wallace is next, but not worried about him at all. Just haven't had the time to play.

The team:


Swampert Level 53


Linoone Level 53


Walrein Level 52


Bellossom Level 52


Xatu Level 50


Castform Level 50

Started playing Pokemon Fire Red again the other day, just beat Misty and managed to get lucky and caught a Lv29 Dugtrio in Diglett's cave, I was actually looking for a Lv22 Diglett so that it didn't have as many levels to gain to catch up to my other pokemon, I'm going to go and attempt Lt.Surge's gym now.

My team:

Ivysaur Lv26 (gained about 4 levels grinding in Diglett's cave)
Gyarados Lv24
Fearow Lv24
Butterfree Lv24
Dugtrio Lv29

I am currently doing a Nuzlocke of Leafgreen. I haven't lost any yet (mostly because I turn the game off. Bad I know). But I'm trying to name all the characters based on Nis and Kamen Rider Characters. It's been fun. Vert Jr. the bulbasuar has been kicking butt.

Is anyone playing Fire red or Leaf green? I am playing Fire red right now so if anyone is we can just gossip about stuff here. I am playing it casually, trying to catch everything I see and just enjoy the game. So yeah, if anyone else is playing you can post it here. Teams, stories, whatever you want

Nope, unfortunately. ): I've played these games hundreds of times before, so wouldn't really be that enjoyable for me if I do again. Though, maybe it could be if I did some challenge run of sorts. Not sure which, though… maybe Nuzlocke? Haha.

Nah. Too boring. FireRed and LeafGreen's story are so boring, I don't feel like playing them anymore.

Yeah I know what you mean. But to be honest, I recently finished Yellow and crystal and I still enjoy Fire red a lot, despite seeing Kanto for so many times. I thought I'd be bored, but it's really fun, unlike before I am just enjoying the game and not thinking about what I am going to do next too much. :D
If you plan to do another run let me know so I can gossip about all the smartarse youngster along the routes with someone lol.

In Emerald I did a Solo Run Cradily and I beaten Steven at Meteor Falls with no healing items. I owned all his pokémon very easily. I remember, when I couldn't do it back in the day and by doing it right now with only one Pokémon I now know, that I did improve since 2 years of playing. I'm so proud of myself... I'm gonna cry... lol jk I won't cry.

I don't know much about Pokemon yet, but from my experience from other games. There's tons of challenges you can try such as something like "beat the game with only normal pokemon", "beat the game with only pokemon with >400 base stats" or "beat the game with a maximum of lv 50 pokemon" or a combination of each of those. I'm sure there's plenty of challenges you can try or troll with.

I still play it just because I want to finish my Pokédex and I still need 129 Pokémon Data. I transfer some Hoenn and Johto Pokémon from Emerald and train them so I still have lots to do. I also left Mewtwo in Cerulean Cave so I can soft reset for shiny later. I also do some shiny hunting time from time. Oh and Battle Tower is also fun for the first 3 times. And I'm still trying to get Pokérus in Fire Red. Yup it's a never ending game for me. I spend like 6 months on that save.

I started playing through Leaf Green about two weeks ago. I'm just taking my time and catching/evolving as I go. I beat Sabrina last night and started catching everything in the safari zone. I keep swapping my team up, but my Wartortle and Beedrill have been staples for the whole game.

What is yourmain team guys? I got Charizard from the beginning, caught Meowth on Route 8. Did the nugget glitch with that TR Grunt so I can buy Scyther from the game corner, Evolved Eevee and just caught Rhyhorn and Psyduck in Safari.
As it turns out, Golduck looks cool, but his moveset is sad. I'd get Staryu but I'll save it for another game since you can get it too late in the game.

Also I just caught the easiest Snowrlax lol. False swipe rules. I'll save the last one for shiny soft resetting :D

When I started my planned team was:

1.) Blastoise
2.) Beedrill
3.) Clefable
4.) Raichu
5.) Rhydon
6.) Victreebel

I intentionally chose this team to give myself a bigger challenge, but after Misty I have made a couple of changes. Jolteon replaced Raichu, and I may end up not using Rhydon at all so I can use Gengar. This playthrough has definitely been my most varied.

I love how everyone are choosing Pokemon to gain a greater challenge or simply to make a strong team, while I sit here and choose Pokemon by the way they look and the way i feel about them xD

I am however happy with my Ultimate team that consists of my favorite 6 Pokemon and you can see it in my signature.

Also, I am planning to do a lot of breeding on Firered after the main story, since it will take me some time to get my hands on Emerald which I what I am playing next . :D

Which are the rest?

Luckily all of my faves are the first generation, with Umbreon being an exception. Good thing they are not obtainable at the beginning in new generations, so I have to try out other Pokemon as well.

Pinta77: Ik, I wish I could get Events :/
All those tickets and I have no idea how I am going to get them ,lol

Let's see...Metagross, Lucario, Crobat, Gardevoir, Umbreon (yay!), and Absol are my six favorite pokemon based on looks. Then again, Lucario probably won half my gym battles and held up against the elite four spectacularly in X! I wish I had jotted down exactly what move set he had then.

Cool. Actually we have similar favorites. Umbreon is in my top 6, and Absol and Metagross are in my top...idk, 20. Gardevoir and Crobat are awesome, but I have never really loved Lucario. Never had a chance to use him so I guess that's why.

Next to do: Beating the crap out of Giovanni and his tower in Saffron, tomorrow morning.

I restarted Fire Red yesterday. So far, I have a Charmander and a Pikachu in my party. I've just beaten Brock. I'm currently trying to find a Nidoran-F in Route 3, but it's taking even longer than it took to find Pikachu, and that was annoying enough.
