beat team rocket again in goldenrod, caught a venonat in the bug catcher contest and replaced butterfree for it (i would have loved to kick ariados instead of butterfree from my team but i need that stupid dig...), trained it til it evolved, beat claire and went thru victory road, found an earthquake tm and a shiny onix there and defeated the rival once more, and now i gonna train my team to maybe lv. 45 and attempt the e4.

scyther lv. 36
-quick att.
-leer
-wing att.
-slash
stab+sharp beak wing attack 2hko'd everyone exept rock or steel types til now

venomoth lv. 35
-gust
-poison powder
-confusion
-leech life
better stats and typing than butterfree has (no 4xrock weak)

heracross l.36
-strength
-leer
-earthquake
-rock smash
finally another ground move than dig, but it still lacks a better fightning move

beedrill l.37
-sludge bomb
-cut
-twinneedle
-pin missile
sucks against rock, steel and poison, but all other types get owned by sludge bomb (or twinnedle in case of psychic or dark)

ledian l.37
-comet punch
-safeguard
-ice p.
thunder p.
as i said before, the weak stats are more than compensate by the elemental punch moves

ariados l.33
-poison sting
-night shade
-leech life
-dig
its speed stat is almost equal to its level and its defences arent too good to, and with dig as its only useful move, its only good agianst ghosts or magnemites =/

i'd really like to post the links with the last boss battles, but i cant cause i dont have 15 posts lol...

My VBA isn't working so I'll have to forfeit this challenge.

EDIT:
I got it to work so I can still play.
I'm still at the same point in the game.(I didn't have to start over! Yay!!)

I know there's this thing called a VBA-link, which works like a link cable, but I don't know if I can give you a link to it though. Google's always the answer though.

I was about to say I had no idea how that works, so thank you jigglypuff8 for having a better answer. :D

-Leaf Blade
-Pursuit

Lombre Lv32

Time for my first update!

So I've been playing since Saturday, and haven't had as much time as I'd like. With that being said, my team's moves are ... well, they just suck. .__.; I've beaten all three gyms, and am on my way to Rock Tunnel. I'm currently on Route 9, fighting the trainers along the way to level up Mr.Mime. I could have sworn one of the trainers north of the Nugget Bridge told me that they could see my "feat" through the grass. XD

Can anybody tell me if I'm safe if my Pokémon end up past level 30? The Cascadebadge says all Pokémon up to level 30 will obey, so I'm not sure if I want to level up Hypno or Kadabra too much more, in fear that they wont obey me... .__.

Hypno Lv. 26

Pound
Hypnosis
Headbutt
Confusion

Kadabra Lv. 25

Teleport
Confusion
Disable

Mr.Mime Lv. 16

Confusion
Barrier

Bellsprout Lv. 14 (HMSlave)

Vine Whip
Growth
Wrap
Cut

Eww, white backgrounds. .__.

Here's what another day of grinding and a day of actual progress got me. I'm about to go to the underwater cavern to stop Team Aqua from awakening Kyogre, with the following team:

Sceptile Lv38

-Quick Attack
-Screech
-Leaf Blade
-Pursuit

Breloom Lv38

-Mach Punch
-Headbutt
-Leech Seed
-Sky Uppercut

Cacturne Lv38

-Absorb
-Faint Attack
-Leech Seed
-Sand-Attack

Roselia Lv39

-Magical Leaf
-Growth
-Giga Drain
-Grasswhistle

Ludicolo Lv39

-Surf
-Fake Out
-Ice Beam
-Thief (Temporarily Dive)

Cradily Lv40

-Astonish
-Confuse Ray
-Acid
-Ingrain

Hopefully soon, I can get this game done, or at least get Cradily some better moves.

EDIT: I beat the Elite Four about two days after I made the original post, but since I'm the last poster, I'm just editing this post with my final Sapphire team.

Well, here's my final Sapphire team:

Ludicolo Lv47

-Surf
-Fake Out
-Ice Beam
-Thief

Sceptile Lv47

-Aerial Ace
-Screech
-Leaf Blade
-Earthquake

Roselia Lv45

-Magical Leaf
-Growth
-Giga Drain
-Grasswhistle

Breloom Lv46

-Mach Punch
-Headbutt
-Leech Seed
-Sky Uppercut

Cradily Lv45

-Rock Tomb
-Confuse Ray
-Giga Drain
-Ingrain

Cacturne Lv46

-Needle Arm
-Faint Attack
-Leech Seed
-Sandstorm

Now that I'm done with Sapphire, it's on to Platinum for me. I have my team already planned out for that game, but I just hope I do fine playing a japanese game that I don't understand.

i am considering starting your challenge but wanted to inform my fellow emulator users of a recent discovery of mine, TGB-Dual 7. it is an emulator that allows you to open two game files at once. if youve been using vba just copy your .sav file into the saved games folder and if u want to use the second emulator u need the alter the file extension to .sa2, i suggest copying for saftey.

i cant post urls yet so just google TGB-Dual 7
