Aetheria's Monotype Ghost Challenge - Part 2

A really easy day... Let's get straight to it.

1. Beat Lt. Surge - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwHm7T3swf8
2. Finished the Tower. Never have I seen so much licking.
3. Beat Erika - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLMt4Kck-DQ

That is where I stopped for the night. Pokemon statuses are included at the end of the Erika video.

Giving Haunter Thunderbolt is the best decision I have made this game. I know the gym battles don't show that, but I use it a lot.

Aetheria's Monotype Ghost Challenge - Part 3 (Kanto's End)

1. Beat Gary and Giovanni in Silph Co. (Probably should have recorded these but didn't. Gary was basically a bunch of thunderbolt, although alakazam almost killed me. Giovanni was a joke.)
2. Defeated Sabrina - Video
3. Beat up the Fighting Club and took the Hitmonchan. No real reason, just for fun.
4. Taught Haunter Psywave. (Mistake, I'll fix it soon enough though.)
5. Beat Koga - Video
6. Used Master Ball on a Pidgey. Felt really good.
7. Massacred Blaine and his gym - video
8. Flew to Viridian and rocked Giovanni - video
9. Beat Gary again, no video until Champ match though.
10. Ran through Victory Road with minor PP issues.
11. Beat the Elite Four - Part 1 / Part 2
12. Struggled through the Rival - video

Never did get around to fixing the Psywave problem, never really became a major issue. Wish I had thought about some PP items as well, but no problem. Kanto is complete and I will move onto Johto later today.

I'd like to switch to Bug if you don't mind. I know I haven't done any update in ages, but I was really busy. I'll start of with pokemon red.

I started my game, did the beginning stuff, caught a Caterpie and a Weedle and trained them up for brock. Brock was pretty easy, though I had to use a Potion on butterfree once. I had to go trough Mt Moon a second tiem since I was defeated by some trainer there. The second time I went trough succesfully and I arrived in Cerulean city. I went over te bridge for some training and Pwnt my rival. Later, when back in cerulean city I beat Misty easily with Beedrill's Twineedle. That's where I saved.

Team:
Butterfree lvl 25
Confusion
Tackle
Supersonic
Sleep powder

Beedrill lvl 25
Twineedle
Poison Sting
Fury attack
Rage

So until next update

Yay, I'm finally out of Hearthome!

Slow emulator speed + Semi-broken computer + Kirlia being so useless that it loses to wild Bibarel = Slow progress.

And as the next gym is Ghost and I have no worthwhile moves against them, I'm using Kirlia. Apologies in advance if it turns out this is against the rules.

I finally got Blade (Kirlia) up to the level of Charlie (Heracross) and King Louis (Monferno), at lvl. 27. I then headed to the gym, with over half of all my moves being completely innefective against ghosts, and none super-effective. Joy. I sent out Blade first, expecting Haunter, but found Duskull instead. I managed to beat it with two Confusions. Haunter however outsped me and critted with Shadow Claw. Down went Blade. Charlie next up, who finished Haunter with two Aerial Aces. I continued the same tactic with Mismagius, but got beaten by repeated Psybeams. Switched to King Louis, who almost beat her with Flame Wheel, but Fantina used a Super Potion. I kept with Flame Wheel, and luckily got a burn, but was beaten again by Psybeam. Nicky (the Machop who is Not Ricky), finally made himself usefull by dying horribly while I healed up Charlie. His sacrifice will be noted. Charlie hit Mismagius hard with an Aerial Ace, and combined with burn damage it dealt the final blow.

I heal my Pokemon and try to leave the city, only to be stopped by my rival, Buffy. Blade kills Staravia with repeated confusion, but takes serious damage in return. Louis, King of Apes, takes down Ponyta with Mach Punch. Charlie beat Prinlup with Brick Breaks (I love this bug, seriously). Blade returned to face Roselia, but got beaten by Mega Drain (I hate this ballerina, seriously). King Louis finished it off with Flame Wheel. No problem really. Apparently his tactic of "making attacks never miss" failed. I noticed that he never actually tried it. I, on the other hand, used both Magical Leaf and Aerial Ace against him, and I won. What does that tell you? His tactic works, he's just too stupid to use it. The blonde moron left me alone, and I continued on my journey.

I made my way on the long road through Solaceon Town to Veilstone City, skipping most of the trainers for the purpose of later training (ie. Croagunk and Riolu). Annoyingly, I got beaten by a powerful pair of NPCs at the entrance to Veilstone (the only time I can remember being beaten by a non-gym leader/E4 member). So I had to go through it all again, which was fun. I then tried to go to Pastoria by going South from Veilstone, before realising that you can't. So I went to the gym instead.

How many times have I proved that I am the true Fighting champion? In Kanto I obliterated the Dojo and beat Bruno. In Johto I beat Chuck and Bruno again. In Hoenn I wiped the floor with Brawly. And this pink-haired chick thinks she can beat me? Sigh. She sent out Meditite, and I remembered how cool Lu-Tze was. I miss him. He beat a Swellow that was 4 levels higher than him when he was still a Meditite for crying out loud. His failure of a replacement managed to beat her Meditite with
several Confusions after a Calm Mind, but took decent damage in return, and therefore was outsped and beaten by Machoke. Anyone sensing a pattern here? I pulled out the big guns and Charlie beat Machoke with Aerial Ace and Lucario with a single Brick Break. I am the Fighting master. Accept no imitations (er, except for *USERNAME*, who's already beaten the challenge).

Made my way back to Hearthome and found that I STILL can't get to Pastoria. I have to beat up some Galactic losers instead. Y'know, I've had it up to here with saving the world all the time. Cyrus better give me a coke.

Team:


Charlie (Heracross)

Lvl. 30
Swarm
- Brick Break
- Shadow Claw
- Horn Attack
- Aerial Ace
Continues to be the MVP.

King Louis (Monferno)

Lvl. 29
Blaze
- Flame Wheel
- Fury Swipes
- Mach Punch
- Leer
Mr. Consistent. He's warming up to me enough to consider putting him on the final team.

Blade (Kirlia)

Lvl. 30
- Confusion
- Magical Leaf
- Double Team
- Calm Mind
This gender-confused moron is my LVP. I cannot wait until he evolves and (hopefully) becomes useful.

I just beat the E4! I decided to just stop using Fearow once I got to Giovanni's gym. It was too much work training all 3 of them. And even then Golbat's and Pidgeot's levels were relatively low.

Now on to Heart Gold!

Chapter 1 : I Get My First Pokemon !

I start off with the classic opening .
Jeez, I love that music .
But ANYWAY !
I wake up and go outside of my hometown and Oak shows up .
What could he want...?
Turns out he wants to help me out by giving a POKEMON !
Sweeeeet .
I pick Charmander, because he's my all time favorite .

Chapter 2 : My First Taste Of ACTION !

Obviously, Nick picks Squirtle D:<
But what's this !?!
He wants to battle me ?
Right on !
...
Simply put, I wipe the floor with him .
After my overly easy battle with my Rival, I leave Pallet Town for now .
That's all for now .

Harrumph. I've gotten quite far in my Fighting challenge but I had to do it all twice, because my computer shut itself down and erased two hours of progress. I beat those Galactic goons and got the Fly HM, then made my way to Pastoria. First things first, I went straight to the swamp and got the Dawn Stone that was hidden there, and evolved Kirlia into a brand spanking new Gallade. While there, I caught a female Croagunk and named it Kendra (the name makes sense if you look at my name and my rival's). Insert here a lot of tedious grinding, going back through past routes beating trainers I avoided before, until Kendra was up to speed with my other Pokemon. Then I went to the Move Relearner and taught Gallade Leaf Blade, and went to battle my rival.

I led with Kendra, hoping to get a Rock Tomb in, but I was outsped at OHKOed by a Wing Attack. Blade avenged with Psycho Cut, and took Prinplup out with Leaf Blade. King Louis (Monferno) came in to beat Ponyta with several Mach Punchs and OHKO Roselia with Flame Wheel. Sweeping through the gym, I challenged Crasher Wake. His Gyarados was possibly the most moronic creature ever to grace this Earth. It only used Waterfall over and over again, which thanks to Dry Skin was completely ineffective. I just spammed Rock Tomb until it died. Then Blade OHKOed Quagsire with Leaf Blade, and Charlie (Heracross) beat Floatzel with two Brick Breaks. Pretty easy match in all, mainly thanks to the retarted Gyarados.

Chased some Galactic goon for a while, then headed to Celestic. On the way, King Louis evolved into an Infernape. There is nothing of interest in Celestic, so I was more than happy to let the goon blow the place up. But then I realised that the old woman would only give me HM03 if I beat up the bad guys, so I reluctantly did so. Inside the ruins I met Cyrus. He seemed like a pleasant guy. Sneasel was easy, OHKOed by Kendra's Revenge. Golbat was beaten by a Psycho Cut. Murkrow is where it got tough. Croagunk couldn't get in a Rock Tomb and was OHKOed by Drill Peck. Charlie met a similar fate. King Louis saved the day with Close Combat. After the battle, Kendra learned Poison Jab and evolved into a lovely new Toxicroak.

With my new Surf technique, I headed to Canaclave. There I met my incredibly annoying rival, with his stupid Staraptor. It swept through Kendra, then Blade, then Charlie. King Louis had to save the day with Close Combat, and ended up sweeping the entire team - Empoleon and Rapidash with CC, Heracross and Roserade with Flame Wheel. If I hadn't already used an Infernape on another playthrough, he'd be on my team for sure. I did the Iron Island quest straight after, picking up the Riolu egg from Riley. Once it hatches, my team will be complete!

Team:

Charlie (Heracross) @ Fist Plate

Lvl. 36
Swarm
- Close Combat
- Shadow Claw
- Horn Attack
- Aerial Ace
I dithered between Close Combat and Brick Break for a while. Do you think I made the right choice?

Blade (Gallade) @ Mind Plate

Lvl. 37
Steadfast
- Psycho Cut
- Leaf Blade
- Double Team
- Night Slash
I was right, he's a lot more useful after evolving. Possibly the MVP nowadays, but everyone's pretty equal.

Kendra (Toxicroak)

Lvl. 38
Dry Skin
- Poison Jab
- Rock Tomb
- Dig
- Revenge
If she had a better Fighting attack, she'd be perfect.

King Louis (Infernape)

Lvl. 37
Blaze
- Flame Wheel
- Fury Swipes
- Close Combat
- Leer
As I've now got the Riolu egg, you can say goodbye to this guy. He'll appear as back-up in gym battles but that's all.
