I'm back, after completely bailing on my other challenges. This time, however, I am completely determined to do this. I'll be starting on Leaf Green shortly, using the Flying type. Platinum will be the easiest game by far, since I can dominate the entire thing with Staraptor if needed (Brave Bird is epic).

short update.

Made it through victory road. Before exiting, ran into my rival...

This battle was a breeze up till typholsion came out. I forgot that Boulder was a steel, so i planned on spamming rock throw. Sadly, typholsion used flame wheel and took out boulder.. and pincone.. I had Philips go out there, paralyze him, then spammed tri attack. Took the rest out easily with scythe. Tomorrow, the elite four. should be fairly easy... i think..



My Current Team..


Boulder/Steelix

Level 43

-Iron Tail
-Sand Storm
-Slam
-Rock Throw


Pinecone/Forretress

Level 40

-Tackle
-Rapid Spin
-Explosion

Philips/Magneton

Level 40

-Tri Attack
-Thunder Shock
-Thunder Wave
-Sonic Boom


Scythe/Scizor

Level 40

-Quick Attack
-Metal Claw
-Slash
-Pursuit


Jet/Skarmory

oh, hey. sorry i didnt update. ive been playing all this time and i havent even updated. how silly of me. Okay.

First I ran through the "required"part of the game as fast as i could. I skipped as many trainers as i could, but my Jynx was at lv 45. I just went to Fuchsia and surfed immediately, so i could get my other 2 ice types. i am currently training, and going around defeating trainers until i am strong enough to beat the E4.
My team
Rougela/Jynx lv 45

Psychic
Lovely Kiss
Ice Punch
Submission
a very handy special sweeper. remember, the psychic type is overpowered in this game.

Jugon/Dewgong lv 40

Headbutt
Aurora Beam
Horn Drill
Surf
since I have 2 water/ice types, I made this one the attacker and Cloyster the defender.

Parshen/Cloyster lv 34

Ice Beam
Withdraw
Toxic
Clamp
May have given this one bad moves. has only 10 pp for main attacking move, so cannot sweep. That explains the underleveling. But ether cures all.

You know that "required" is only Brock and Misty, right? You can get Lapras before 3rd Gym, and all the Ice types if you beat Koga 3rd. Also, why are you not using Lapras? You think Jynx is a good Special Sweeper, try Psy/Surf/BoltBeam Lapras.

i know im strange, but i use a different pokemon every game. In this case, im saving Lapras for Silver. I will have Lapras, Sneasel, and Piloswine. Oh yeah, and i did indeed beat koga third. When i say required, i mean those first three, and everything up to the pokeflute.

Update #4 ; Finished Kanto
-Beat Lorelei (Not hard.) -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr8z-EvszFQ
-Beat Bruno (Used Jolteon's Double Kick to take out Onix x2) -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qbxWEeNVN4
-Beat Agatha (Was really annoying with her stupid status effects.) -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44Gu_SWYnsU
-Beat Lance (Was difficult. Supersonic was extremely useful against these deadly dragons.) -> I can't shorten the video at all and it is too long so there will be no video for it until I get a chance to shorten it/cut it in half. Same goes for the rival video.
-Beat The Champion (AKA My Rival. Accidently replaced Double Kick with Pin Missile so beating Rhydon was harder but supersonic + sonicboom worked out alright and Pin Missile proved to be extremely useful against Venusaur)

FINAL TEAM;

Cheddar//Raichu
Lv. 48
-Thundershock
-Thunder
-Swift
-Quick Attack

Bombomb//Electrode
Lv. 49
-Thunderbolt
-Sonicboom
-Swift
-Selfdestruct

Needles//Jolteon
Lv.48
-Pin Missile
-Double-Edge
-Quick Attack
-Thundershock

Magneto//Magneton
Lv. 47
-Take Down
-Swift
-Thundershock
-Supersonic

I have the videos but the Giovanni one won't load right so I may just upload the others before the Giovanni one.

I'll be starting Johto on Silver
Gold. Think I may take a little rest on the challenge instead of grinding my way through like I did with Blue.

VERY small progress on my flying challenge. All I did was get my Charmander (named Cloud) and delivered Oak's Parcel. I may put this off for a couple weeks, as I'm going on holiday soon. Expect another update in about 2 weeks (possibly before if I get motivated).

Here it is.. the Elite Four... Ever since i read the Pokemon special manga, the elite four seems extremely evil to me..


Will:
Will was pretty easy. I started with boulder and rock throwed the xatu. Next was exeggutor. I sent out jet and pecked him a few times. Next on her line up, jynx. I sent out scythe and used slash then quick attack. easy kill. Slowbro, i used Philips and shocked him twice. And a repeat with the second xatu.

Koga:
Koga gave a decent fight. He started with ariados, and i started with jet. I pecked twice and he died. His next pokemon was forretress. I sent out boulder, since i didn't know who else i could send out. I used rock throw and slam until he finally used self destruct. Next was venomoth. Again, jet pecked and it was done. For his muck, i sent out pinecone to explode. He had a small amount of hp left, so i used scythe to finish it with slash. And for crobat, i had philips shock it.

Bruno:
I was worried about bruno at first. Then i remembered i had a flying type. Started with jet and took out hitmontop easily. Next was hitmonchan. I used fly once, then peck, then he took me out with 2 fire punches. Switched out to philips, revived jet, then he fainted and jet finished the job. Pecked hitmonlee a few times and killed it. Switched out for boulder to get onix with iron tail.. OHKO on onix, and sent jet back out for machamp. Used peck twice, then jet died. I sent out scythe and finished it with slash. Pretty easy battle.

Karen:
She took me a few tries, due to houndoom... After grinding boulder and scythe to level 50 for no reason, i finally decided to make her waste flame thrower by WASTING my revives.. The only problem child in this battle was houndoom. Every other pokemon went down in a couple shots. Terrible battle..

Lance:
Lance was ALMOST a problem. Gyarados was easy. 2 sword dances and a slash it was done. He sent out chrizard and gyarados used rain dance, so fire was weak. I TRIED to use slash, to AVOID the PROBLEM, but for some reason, charizard was faster than Scythe. So Boulder came up next. I managed a rock throw, because rain dance weakened the flame thrower, so i had to revive scythe and use quick attack. Dragonite died to Boulders Dragon breath. Almost all of his dragonites went down, but one, which i sent out pinecone and finished the job with explode. Then aerodactyl went down to Philips. Not the hardest battle, oddly..

Elite four is finished! Next up, Lt.Surge in Kanto!

G3RM, you have to start with RBY, or fire red and leaf green

GFA, since they didn't exist in gen 1, you don't have to do gen 1. you can go straight to gen 2 and pick up the closest one, ie, for the steel type, you can catch a bell sprout and trade it for an onix in an in-game trade. but for dark, you would have to trade from one game to another, or you can wait till you get an eevee, but eevee is a pretty long wait.
Hope that answered your question for the most part..

It did. I had just read through the first 20 pages though, and they said no Steel/Dark challenges, so I guess they changed the rules

They have; that threw me for a loop when it was changed, but now I guess it makes sense.

Do we have any steel or dark champions, though?
