I know I haven't updated, so I'm going to do a big one now and then small ones in the future! Haha

What I've Done:
Spoiler:
I started with Totodile, and nicknamed him "Nom-Nom" (I was at a loss of names). I did the boring stuff at the beginning (talked to Mr. Pokemon, named my rival, etc.) Upon arriving at Violet City, I got a Slugma egg from Primo. I also caught a Zubat in Dark Cave, and named him "Batman". I nicknamed my Slugma "Gary" after it hatched (after the snail from the children's cartoon "Spongebob Squarepants", 'cuz why not?). I got a Pikachu from Pokemon Battle Revolution that had both Surf and Volt Tackle (the latter will be gone once I can learn t-bolt. ahaha). I just progressed through the game as normal. After beating Whitney, however, I went to Ecruteak, visited the Pokemon Center, and went back to Goldenrod ASAP. I went to Bill's place in Goldenrod City and obtained my Eevee, which I nicknamed Psycho (because Espeon is a Psychic-type). Now I'm in Ecruteak City, and I have three gym badges.
EDIT: Now I have four badges. :D


My Team so far:
Spoiler:

I'd have taken screenshots, however I play on an actual game cartridge on my 3DS XL, and I don't have a capture software. So deal with this unless you'd all prefer horrible quality phone screenshots.
FORMAT:
Pokemon.Gender (Nickname) - Stats (Level/Max HP/Atk/Def/Sp. Atk/Sp. Def/Spd) - Attacks (1/2/3/4)
Croconaw.M (Nom-Nom) - 22/65/46/41/38/32/37 - Cut/Ice Fang/Shadow Claw/Headbutt (I know Cut is a questionable decision, but I was too lazy to catch a Paras. lol)
Slugma.M (Gary) - 21/54/28/27/32/27/20 - Yawn/Harden/Ember/Rock Throw
Pikachu.F (PIKACHU) - 21/51/30/22/32/22/48 - Volt Tackle/Surf/Double Team/Thunder Wave
Crobat.M (Batman) - 24/82/49/48/46/39/69 - Wing Attack/Confuse Ray/U-turn/Roost
Eevee.M (Psycho) - 14/20/21/18/28/21 - Tail Whip/Tackle/Shadow Ball/Sand-Attack

Update 2
This game hates me.
Spoiler:
-Didn't save the personal notepad like a dipmuk.
-hey let's liberate pokémon by kicking this munna a bunch
-Stuff happens, I get surprised by Cheren on Route 3 AND N in front of the Nacrene Gym.
-I fight the Gym trainers and it doesn't end very well.
-A couple Audinos later, everyone's at Level 16-17.
-VS Lenora: I do not remember her being this hard. Eventually I just give up and level up Cranidos and Makuhita to level 18 and 20 respectively, which would've worked fine except ARM THRUST ONLY HITS TWICE 3 TIMES IN A ROW. I still win but not before I have to use a Super Potion.
-More Team Plasma stuff happens but I call it a day at this point.

It'd be easier to count the things that didn't go wrong in this update, seriously. From me getting 1HKO critted TWICE by N, to Arm Thrust hitting twice 80% of the time to even getting into a random battle one step away from the rustling grass. Yeah, that happened twice in a row and then I had to run around like an idiot for ten minutes before another Audino showed up.

Pokemon that got away:
Spoiler:
(Listing only their first evolutionary stage, but I will be evolving them when possible) Zigzagoon, Lotad, Ralts, Slakoth, Nosepass, Skitty, Aron, Magnemite, Wailmer, Slugma, Torkoal, Swablu, Duskull, Absol, Snorunt, Spheal, Trapinch, Skarmory, Spoink, Wingull

Parameters: I've only listed those in the new Hoenn dex, as I can't hack anything in; would prefer being able to have a team of at least 5 before the Elite Four. Also would like something that can learn Surf by the time Surf is given to you in Petalburg, for fairly obvious reasons.
Mode: Expert Mode
