about to beat E4. might post video.
Edit: Just beat E4. Videos up!
sorry about the stretch

Final Team for anyone that cares.
Rougela/Jynx lv 58

Lovely Kiss
Probably the MVP. very powerful, could have handled the game by herself. But backup is always good.
(I know i accidently deleted Psychic for Blizzard in the video, but this is what i intended.)

Jugon/Dewgong lv 57

Horn Drill
a good pokemon, but mostly used for surf.

Parshen/Cloyster lv 57

Ice Beam
Toxic/Clamp is very useful against some pokemon. unfortunately, clamp ran out of pp early on.
moved to 649, see you there!

Big update x_x I had gone to visit family and was away from the internet so I couldn't update or upload any more vids. This is what I've got;
- Defeated Whitney ->
- Defeated Morty ->
- Defeated Chuck ->
- Got the Secret Potion
- Defeated Jasmine ->
- Got the Red Gyarados
- Thwarted Team Rocket's plans
- Defeated Pryce ->
- Thwarted Team Rocket and saved the Radio Tower
- Defeated Clair and retrieved the Dragon Fang ->
- Defeated Will
- Defeated Koga

- Defeated Karen
- Defeated Lance

My Team is currently;

Lv. 45
-Iron Tail
-Thunder Punch
-Fire Punch

Lv. 43

Lv. 44
-Confuse Ray

I think since the Kanto Gym Leaders will be rather easy, I'm not going to bother recording it to save time. That's it for today!

EDIT: Just Beat the 8 gyms in Kanto and will be training for my battle with Red. The Team Now;

Lv. 53
-Iron Tail
-Thunder Punch
-Fire Punch

Lv. 50

Lv. 53
-Confuse Ray
-Take Down

EDIT #2:
I tried my luck with Red and I managed to beat him just barely. x_x Lanturn proved to be most useful in the challenge so I think he may return to my team in Hoenn. I want to upload the videos in order somewhat so instead of posting a video link I'll post screenshots for now since I just found the screencapture function on the VBA;

The Team;

-I'll continue the challenge in Sapphire Version.

Part of me questions the reasoning of having the quick claw on Torterra, but then the rest of me remembers that going first is often the difference between winning and losing.

Okay, here's the deal...I figured I'd get a start on my challenge, y'know maybe the first 2 gyms....6 hours later I've finished Blue. I'm thinking I'll try to put 1-2 gym's worth of update per day. Starting now.

I started with Squirtle, because it'd make a good HM slave, not because it'd leave my rival with a grass type, that'd just be cheap...anyway I intentionally lost the rival battle at the beginning. After going to Viridian City and collecting/delivering Oak's Parcel I went out and caught myself a Rattata and Pidgey (I'll start nicknaming things in Gen II, promise) and dumped the turtle in a computer.
10 metapods later I was ready to fight my rival seriously for the first time, Rattata took down his Pidgey no probs, although Pidgey struggled a bit against Bulbasaur, I forgot Gust was normal type in Gen I. With the rival soundly thrashed I continued onwards, towards Pewter City, and the first gym battle of my journey.

Leader Battle: Brock
Rattata Lv.10 Tackle, Tail Whip, Quick Attack
Pidgey Lv.10 Gust, Sand Attack

I thought long and hard about how I was going to handle Brock, after all, every attack my 'mons learned was not very effective against his rock types. So I decided, instead of focusing on dealing massive damage to him, I'd focus on preventing him from hitting me, I felt kinda cheap for doing it but I had Pidgey open the fight with sand attack until his Geodude's accuracy hit its minimum, Pidgey then used gust repeatedly until Geodude fainted. Pidgey leveled up. I continued this tactic vs Onix, although I did try to change things up. After Onix's accuracy dropped I switched Rattata in and tail whipped it until it's defenses were shot to hell, unfortunately it's accuracy was still good enough to hit Rattata with Bide, causing it to faint. Pidgey went back out and finished it off. Pidgey leveled up again.

I headed east towards Mt. Moon, easily defeating all the trainers who challenged me. I entered a tunnel which lead through to the next city, immediately after entering I turned to the left and found a TM, it contained water gun, a strange move to put in a tm I thought...nonetheless it was better than nothing in a cave full of geodudes, so I taught it to Rattata, several trainer battles later Pidgey or should I say Pidgeotto had evolved and Rattata had learned Hyper Fang. A lucky critical hit from a Raticate belonging to a member of Team Rocket took Pidgeotto down, but fortunately, Rattata was easily strong enough to get through the rest of the cave.

Upon arriving in Cerulean City I healed up in the local pokemon center and headed north, there was something I needed to take care of before I challenged the gym here. After a brief battle with my rival, Rattata once again showing his awesomeness, I found myself confronted with a challenge, the "Nugget Bridge" trainers, they were easily enough to dispatch, and Rattata even evolved part way through the challenge, great! At the end of the bridge I recieved my reward, and was told I should join Team Rocket, one one-sided fight later I continued on my way, several trainer battles later I arrived at a small house, I entered and found a strange pokemon, after a brief moment of shock I discovered this pokemon was in fact a researcher who screwed up a teleportation experiment. After sorting out his problem I recieved a ticket for the SS Aqua in Vermillion City.

More later, although I might just summarize, less effort.

Hey guys It's been a while but I will be continuing my mono challenge soon. Life and family reunions have held me... sorry couldn't get a straight face. Anyway I have been busy with other games like heart gold, Enchanted arms, Final fantasy 13 and many more. So I may start tomorrow or maybe another day. But here is my progress so far. I have no badges and I have received Chimchar. I talked with Mom and got my pokeballs from Dawn.

After saving Bill from his own stupidity I encountered a member of Team Rocket hiding out in someone's backyard, after I defeated him he gave me a TM because...well, I don't know why but I'm not complaining. I taught the new move Dig to Raticate and headed south to get my next team member, Meowth.

I headed back to Cerulean, and entered the gym. Meowth got a couple of levels from the trainers and then...

Leader Battle: Misty
Raticate Lv.22 Water Gun, Tail Whip, Dig, Hyper Fang
Pidgeotto Lv.20 Gust, Sand Attack, Quick Attack, Whirlwind
Meowth Lv.12 Scratch, Growl, Bite

Meowth started off but switched out immediately for EXP, Pidgeotto switched in and spammed Quick Attack to take Staryu down. Starmie defeated Pidgeotto with one BubbleBeam, enter Raticate. As with every other trainer so far, Misty no likey da Hyper Fang.

I headed south to Vermillion City and the SS Aqua, trainers were beaten, inconvenient crits were had, rivals' Raticates were murdered for their inferiority, and HMs were acquired. I defeated the trainers at the gym and trained Meowth up to Lv.24 before taking on the leader.

Leader Battle: Lt. Surge
Raticate Lv.24 Water Gun, Tail Whip, Dig, Hyper Fang
Pidgeotto Lv.24 Gust, Sand Attack, Quick Attack, Whirlwind
Meowth Lv.24 Scratch, Screech, Bite, Pay Day
Bellsprout Lv.10 Cutslave

Pidgeotto took Voltorb down with Quick Attack spam, got a couple of Sand Attacks off on Pikachu before being ThunderShocked out...Raticate Dig swept the electric mice...

Next time! Rock Tunnel and Celadon City.
