This challenge is just what I'm looking for - a way of playing through the pokemon regions again with some new mons I probably wouldn't normally pick. I'll be trying this out in an ultimate format, that is completing the challenge once in every canon region so far starting with Hoenn (when I get the game on friday). For my first game of the challenge my sign up is below:

My date of birth is 19/02/96 and I will be playing through generation 3 therefore my team will be:

1. #117 - The Vibrava Line
2. #57 - The Geodude Line
3. #18 - The Dustox Line
6. Ice - The Walrein Line
5. Black - The Dusclops Line
6. The first pokemon on route 2

All pokemon I have never used before just as long as I don't get zigzagoon on route 2 I'm really happy with how its looking at the moment

Battle with Brawly:

-Athena evolved into Kirlia

Battle with Flannery:
Decided to have some fun with this fight trying my luck with Atlas' rock blast to see how many turns it took to take out her team, as it turns out 5 turns for 3 pokemon with an average of three hits a turn, not too shabby

Bonus Post gym 4:
-Received the Go-goggles from May

Omega Ruby date of birth challenge - Update 2

Same as before each spoiler tag covers a gym

Current Team:
Athena the Gardevoir (Female; lvl 36; Trace; Draining Kiss, Psychic, Magical Leaf, Calm Mind)

Fluster the Dustox (Male; lvl 36; Shield Dust; Venoshock, Bug Buzz, Toxic, Bug Bite)

Atlas the Graveller (Male; lvl 37; Sturdy; Smack Down, Rock Blast, Rock Polish, Bulldoze)

Blitz the Trapinch (Female; lvl 22; Arena Trap; Sand Tomb, Rock Slide, Dig, Crunch)


-Trained Trapinch a bit to get her to a usable level
-she evolved into Vibrava
-made my way though Rusturf tunnel
-cycled back to Petalburg city and healed up at the center
-entered the gym
-backtracked to battle all of the trainers
-took on my dad for the fifth badge

Battle with Norman:
To start with I was a little uncertain about this battle due to the normal typing giving me no outright advantage but after a couple of calm minds they all fell to Athena's STAB psychic. The only real problem was the second slaking who managed to survive the first attack and almost take her down but not quite allowing me to wipe it with a critical hit straight after Norman used his heal.


-got annoyed having to babysit Wally again
-made my way back to Littleroot town
-got the amulet coin from mum
-returned to Mauville city
-left via route 118
-met up with Steven
-made friends with Latios
-received the mega bracelet from Steven
-returned to route 118
-headed north to route 119
-caught 2 hm-slaves (Carvanha and Tropius)
-realized having 2 hm-slaves is going to be really annoying when I get to Mt-Pyre

-got to the Weather Institute
-beat some team magma members
-Atlas learnt Earthquake
-slept in the bed to heal up
-crossed the bridge
-bumped into May
-proceeded to wipe the floor with her Pokemon
-continued to Fortree City
-passed straight through to route 120
-caught up with Steven,again
-received the oculus rift Devon Scope

-returned to the city
-healed at the Pokemon Center
-entered the gym
-solved my second favorite gym puzzle from the game
-Began the fight for the Sixth badge

Battle with Winona:
Good thing for me all Skarmory wanted to do was layer spikes for 3 turns allowing for Atlas to take charge. One rock polish made him the fastest thing in the room. A smack down set the Skarmory up (or should that be down) and a super effective earthquake finished the job. A single smack down each for her Swellow and Pelipper left just the Altaria flying around. The combo almost worked first time again apart from the hyper potion making it take 2 earthquakes rather than 1.

-traveled east to route 122
-received TM99 Dazzling gleam an taught it to Athena over draining kiss
-continued to Lilycove City
-destroyed May and her team
-made my way to Mt Pyre
-caught my fifth team member:
Dusty the Duskull (Male; lvl 24; Levitate; Foresight, Astonish, Confuse Ray, Shadow Sneak)
-watched Maxie take the red orb
-received the blue orb

-flew to Slateport City
-beat the grunts as the submarine left
-used trainer's eyes to train Dusty to a reasonable level
-he evolved into Dusclops
-flew to Fallarbor Town
-tutored Dusty a new moveset (Ice punch, Shadow Punch, Thunder Punch, Fire Punch)

-flew back to Lilycove City
-entered the Team Magma Hideout
-found the Masterball
-used a single Rockslide to take out the horde battle
-fainted Courtney's Camerupt with an earthquake from Atlas
-left the hideout
-surfed to Mossdeep City
-healed at the center

-travelled north to shoal cave
-caught my final team member
Tusk the Sealeo (Male; lvl 34; Ice Body; Body Slam, Aurora Beam, Hail, Swagger)
-taught tusk Surf
-returned to Mossdeep City
-took on the seventh gym

Battle with Tate & Liza:
I led with Dusty and Athena due to their protection from psychic types so the biggest threat was going to be Solrock's sunny day flamethrower. They got the first part setup but with the damage output from a Shadow Punch and a Dazzling Gleam it was low enough for Dusty to take out. Lastly I focused my attention on their lunatone that had already setup a light screen and a calm mind. He tried a STAB psychic on Dusty but he just stood, took it and fought back with a powerful STAB punch of his own to claim the victory and the Mind Badge


-received dive from my old friend Steven
-surfed to route 128
-entered the Seafloor Cavern
-navigated the cave to Maxie
-had a very one sided fight with the leader of Team Magma
-Tusk evolved into Walrein
-watched the start of the end of the world

-dived to find the entrance to Sootopolis
-entered Sootopolis City

-healed at the pokemon center
-got told by every important npc that only I could save the world
-entered the Cave of Origin
-descended into it's depths
-got to ride on Groudon's back (just like a theme park)
-calmed Groudon down by forcing him into a tiny green ball
-returned to the surface
-received the Eon Flute from the guy who just keeps on giving (Steven)
-entered the final gym
-purposely failed my favorite gym puzzle for the free exp
-found a post somewhere saying that new mega-stones had been unlocked
-soared to Verdanturf Town
-received the Gardevoirite from Wanda
-returned to Sootopolis' gym
-began my battle for the last badge

Battle with Wallace:
I decided to start the fight with Dusty to give him a bit more exp as I knew he could handle 4 of Wallace's pokemon with 1/2 thunder punches which he did but then the ground type Whiscash was sent out against me. At this point I decided to see what mega-gardevoir could do and in a turn knocked out the final pokemon with a Magical Leaf.

Current Team after eighth badge:
Athena the Gardevoir (Female; lvl 62; Trace; Moonblast, Psychic, Magical Leaf, Calm Mind)

Fluster the Dustox (Male; lvl 64; Shield Dust; Venoshock, Bug Buzz, Toxic, Quiver Dance)
