You shall take along Nidoqueen (it can learn Surf, so no worries about that), Dugtrio, and Magneton. Picked all Kanto Pokemon, so it shouldn't be a problem getting them.

EDIT: Challenge is done. I would've been done sooner, but grinding for levels took far too long. I hate grinding up a team of six, and I know for sure when I do Gen 2, I'm only going for 4 party members.

Team Zero (Final)


Bowser (Blastoise) Lv. 55
Final Stats: 165/127/128/115/114
Moves: Mega Punch, Bite, Surf, Water Gun


Spiker (Sandslash) Lv. 56
Final Stats: 168/139/149/103/81
Moves: Rock Slide, Dig, Slash, Cut


Vapor (Vaporeon) Lv. 56
Final Stats: 241/94/99/91/155
Moves: Bite, Surf, Ice Beam, Quick Attack


Stalfos (Marowak) Lv. 54
Final Stats: 145/116/144/76/86
Moves: Bonemerang, Thrash, Submission, Mega Kick


Butterwing (Butterfree) Lv. 57
Final Stats: 161/86/77/101/117
Moves: Sleep Powder, Psychic, Psybeam, Mega Drain


Fin Lasers (Dewgong) Lv. 56
Final Stats: 186/97/120/100/138
Moves: Surf, Strength, Ice Beam, Horn Drill

Anyway, I'll be doing Gen 2, but not right away. I gotta clean up my list of challenges first.

Ok, time for round 2

Name: KoboraX
Version: Silver
Pokedex: Regional
My Picks: Meganium
# of Pokemon: 5
NFE's/Legnedaries: Surprise me, but no Weedle or something useless that can barely fight or can't fight at all/None. I don't like using legendaries in challenges. It kills the challenge.

Welp, it looks like I finished Pokemon Green (and all the gloriously ugly sprites!!!)

Spoiler:

-Had to use starter to defeat first Gym, so I'll skip that part.

-Caught Clefairy after ~50 frustrating encounters. Moon Stone, haha time for Clefable! Nicknamed Moon.
-Bought Magikarp for a well-spent $500! No nickname for this poor guy.

-Grinded like a true champ until I got Magikarp to evolve, all before Misty and after Clefable had a field day on my Rival.

MISTY (Badge #2)
-Clefable tanked some Starmie attacks, while Gyarados trounced them with Bite. At this stage of the game, Gyarados is unstoppable.

-Went to Vermilion and found my third team member, Diglett. Nicknamed "Monty" to mirror Monty Mole from the Mario games. (Awful nickname, right?)

-SS Anne went smoothly with newly-evolved Dugtrio!

SURGE (Badge #3)
Dugtrio's Dig finished Surge in a hurry. Next.

-Rival gets owned lel

ERIKA (Badge #4)
-Wasting no time at all, I taught Dugtrio Rock Slide, then Clefable Ice Beam and Thundebolt.
-Ice Beam finishes her up. Clefable's versatility paid off.

-Did the Silph Co event to teach Dugtrio Earthquake before Koga, a strategy which is used universally by speedrunners of this game.

KOGA (Badge #5)
-Earthquake. And we out.

Went and fought Blaine before Sabrina for extra ease.

BLAINE (Badge #7)
-Now that Gyarados learned Surf, I used it along with Dugtrio to destroy Blaine. I hope he had Burn Heal.

Back to Sabs! But not before I catch Muk, who I nicknamed Wale. (If you understood this joke, great for you. I think Wale is a trash rapper, and Muk is, well, garbage.)

SABRINA (Badge #6)
-I utilized Clefable's good Special to tank Sabrina's Psychic attackers. Double Edge OHKOed every Pokemon besides Alakazam, who I used Dugtrio to stop.

GIOVANNI (Badge #8)
Here we go. Moon the Clefable knows Ice Beam and Dugtrio has Earthquake, Gyarados with Surf. I beat Gio with ease.

-Somewhat tough but not really Rival battle. Wale the Muk was helpful with its Toxic/Minimize strategy. It also defeated Venusaur.

LORELEI
Here we are. Clefable's Thunderbolt made it easy to move on.

BRUNO
Dugtrio cleared them all with Earthquake, which critical hit a few times.

AGATHA
Same thing here. Dugtrio is a beast! Rock Slide for the Golbat, if you were wondering.

LANCE
Clefable's Ice Beam beat everything.

CHAMPION RIVAL
-Pidgeot, Gyarados, Exeggutor and Venusaur: Clefable's TBolt and Ice Beam killed them.
Arcanine and Alakazam: Dugtrio for the win.


I beat this challenge in record speed. (Speak of which, Werster beat Pokemon Red last night in 1:51!) Dugtrio is so OP in Gen 1, with its Slash that crits everytime, Fissure that only needs X Accuracy to work, a ~31% chance to critical hit with every move besides Slash, and STAB Earthquake. Gyarados is great too, and Clefable is a poor man's Chansey with its HP and good Special. Muk is an okay Pokemon and did some good work for me when needed.

FINAL INFO
Spoiler:


Moon (Clefable) Lv.55
Metronome/Double Edge/Ice Beam/Thunderbolt

Spoiler:

Gyarados Lv.51
Bite/Surf/Take Down/Blizzard

Spoiler:

Monty (Dugtrio) Lv.54 MVP!!!
Dig/Earthquake/Rock Slide/Slash

Spoiler:

Wale (Muk) Lv.49
Toxic/Minimize/Sludge/Disable

Raichu, Rampardos/Bastiodon (whichever fossil you get), and Drifblim.
Since you are receiving no starters, yes you can.
Have fun!

Since you can't battle Red, beat the Elite 4 a second time after Kanto's gyms.

ShadeDraco when are you updating the challengers list? because I still don't see my username there.
More progress.
Update 2:
-I caught a male taillow named him Xail
-Defeated the aqua grunt in the forest
-Caught a female whismur named her Clair
-Grinded up everyone to level 13
-While grinding I found a shiny zigzagoon! Too bad my first shiny and I can't use him
-I beat Roxanne easily with both of my grass types and received the Stone Badge
-Lily (lotad) evolved after the battle into a lombre
-Got the pokenav and took the ship to Dewford
-Went to take the fishing rod just because... and gave the Silk Scarf to Clair on the way
-Went through the cave (I know my way) and gave Steven the letter, then I went back to get the exp.share
-Saved
That would do it for now (I really wanted a shiny but of course while I do a challenge and cannot use that one species it shows up) the next update will be soon.

Going to address this real quick. Even if someone is running a challenge, they do have a life outside the forum. Some people have update schedules they abide by as well, and then others just update whenever they can. I know a lot of people are busy with school right now since the end is coming up for many people, so that also plays into this. Asking about updates is a bit rude though, so please refrain from it, and this goes for anybody.

If time goes on and clearly the owner of this challenge isn't signing on anymore, posting in here, or any of that, someone else is free to ask me for ownership of the challenge. But until then, please show the OP some respect by not asking about updates. Thanks for understanding!
