eighth gym done!





raichu setup a light screen... than fainted.
ambipom baton passed to luxray, which gave azurill a free hit.
luxray used thunder wave, activating the cheri berry... then fainted.
ambipom used agility, which was pointless since it was faster already.
a full restore was used, but again, it fainted.
octilerry crit ooktazooka, but barely survived.
bullet seed did practically nothing... except give me the badge.


EDIT: also... azurill can learn only 3 physical moves of different types. should I keep or replace blizzard with maybe toxic?

So, things I learned today. Playing through Pokemon FireRed using the fast forward button on VBA, is now a nightly leisure activity. At least in a solo challenge, I cleared the game in a little over 2 hours. I had to grind to 16 before Brock, since the trainer before Brock forced me to struggle cause my only offensive move was tackle and his geodude ate all my PP. Once that happened though, Vaporeon was off, and never looked back until the very end. Only a couple of close calls in the elite 4 due to me being overconfident and careless.

Spoiler:






I will probably be moving on to HeartGold next, see how much harder it is when I have to take down Red with his level 80 pokemon. Vaporeon is just amazing though!

Go check out the thread. The doctor explains the rules and what it is.

Update #3: Mew - Fire Red
Solo runs with legendaries are even easier than regular Pokémon and I honestly don't really like Mew (or any legendary actually), but I've made it my goal to do as much solo runs as possible.

Just defeated the 8th gym a few hours ago, was just waiting for someone else to post because I didn't feel like editing mine. I'm hoping to finish the game tomorrow as I don't really have that much left, plus I might have gone a little overboard with the Lucky Egg , seeing as I'm already at lv.88.

Game(s): Pokemon Yellow upgrade V2.0


#Update- Just got through the first gym, since Raichu doesn't learn any moves in pokemon Yellow I had to level him up to 19, use up all of my PP's from thundershock, growl and thunder wave and beat brock with struggle, took me three potions.

#Update 2- Finished the game.

Raichu level 79.
HM Slaves: Bellsprout - cut, Doduo - fly, Lapras - Surf & Strength.
Whiteouts: 2 - First at level 23 a zubat got me with his confusion... Second at Giovanni's with lucky critical earthquake.



Pokemon Yellow upgrade v2.0 offers items like MasterBalls, Max Ethers/Elixirs and PP Ups for free in the "big shop" (that's how I call it :D), I haven't bought a single one in my run.

SOrry to double post, but I have a question.

If I did a solo run with Hitmonchan, would I have to start it as a Tyrogue? Or would I just be able to start it with a Hitmonchan? Only because Tyrogue isnt guaranteed to level into it.

Seeing as Tyrogue is a baby pokemon I would say that to do a hitmonchan solo you wouldn't have to use Tyrogue.
