What are the rules regarding pokemon who evolve and gain the type that is your monotype?

For example, if I were doing an Ice monotype, could I use shellder until I was able to evolve it into Cloyster? Or does the pokemon have to start out with your chosen monotype?


EDIT: HA! I spelt "regarding" wrong. Ah, oh boy. I fixed it above.

Poochyena, this is a run which you go through all the regions with a type. Since dark is unavailable in the Color games, you can't do it.

Myzou: Haha! Glad to see you back. 2 month break? This challenge has only been around 3 months!
My last video for this was uploaded on Jan. 24th. It's March 31st. So yes, a 2 month break :P I went through them very fast XD And uploaded every gym battle XD

You CAN use them, to my knowledge... I Know some flying type people chose Charmander in the first gen.

Yeah, and I had a Nidoran in my Ground challenge so it evolved into NIDOKING (a Ground type). And Im currently using a Turtwig and a Shellos so they evolve into ground types, so I guess there's no problem with it.

Oh, and I expect to defeat Team Galactic at the Windworks by Sunday. I have a lot of school stuff to do, and if I get to play it today, I have to train Shellos A LOT.

Yeah, you can take Pokemon who aren't of your type if they'll eventually evolve into your type. For example, I still have an Eevee in my Crystal team.

Oh, I should really get back to that game. But Platinum's got me occupied, lol.

Whoa, I did much more progress than I expected. Mars was easy as pie, Roll thrashed her with his moves, learning Magitude in the process. Then I trained Slug, who came up huge and became a vital team member. After that I got through Eterna Forest, where Donny evolved and Slug grew even stronger, learning HP. AS it was "not very effective" against a Meditite and "super effective" against a Wurmple, i figured out it was HP Rock. I saved at Eterna City. Expect my party to be lv 22 by tomorrow or Saturday.

Team:

Donatello - Grotle - Lv 18
Tackle
Curse
Absorb
Razor Leaf


Roll - Geodude - Lv 16
Magnitude
Rock Throw
Rock Polish
Defense Curl


Slug - Shellos - Lv 17
Hidden Power (Rock)
Water Pulse
Mud Bomb
Harden

By Wallace do you mean Watson?

I am Training in Victory road right now, as I am completely underleveled. I'll be grinding for a while, and I don't get much time to play but I expect to be at the Elite Four in a week or so. Nothing in my team changed but the levels.

Hmm, that does make more sense if you mean Wattson. I was sitting here looking at your post earlier, and was wondering why you couldn't get to that cave until you beat Wallace. XD

Me too, and beating Wallace with a Combusken sounds kinda weird. I mean, I beat red with SERIOSLY UNDERLEVELED pokemon (lucky me), and i found it strange cuz I didnt expect to win, and this is something similar. Beating Wattson with a Combusken makes more sense

This sounds fun. I want to join. I'll take part in this challenge using my FireRed/LeafGreen since I don't have any of the Generation I & II games. For the type that I'm going to use, can I use Ghost-type Pokemon.?

Yeah, you can use Ghosts. And since you are, you can trade one Pokemon of the type into your game as soon as you can.

And you do realize that you need to go through a 2nd Gen game as well, eh?

Then I can't take part in this challenge.? I will do the 2nd Generation games if I can find my Gold version. Is that ok.? BTW, can I start the challenge in Lavender Town.? Because that's the point where you can get Ghost type Pokemon namely Gastly and its evolutions.

Well, I believe you could find an emulator. Those are allowed here.

Well, you must start the game from scratch, but as I said, if you are in a Ghost challenge, then you can trade a Gastly over into your game once you get your Pokedex. Though if you're asking because you're unable to trade, then you'd have to use just your starter until you reach Lavender town. If that is the case, I'd recommend Bulbasaur, because out of the three choice he has an advantage over each of the first three gyms.

Well, I have an emulator to play with but I'll just use it for the G/S/C Challenge.

Actually, I'm able to trade but the problem is it might disobey me.

I thoguht Gardenia was gonna be really hard, but thanks to Donatello's Curse it was pretty easy (I had to use about 3-4 Super Potions though). After baeting her and obtaining TM Grass Knot, I taught it to Don and headed to the Eterna Galactic Building.

I made my way through there and sweeped the floor with the Grunts. Then I headed to the top to battle Jupiter, owning her with Slug. Then the bike shop guy gave me a Bike and I wnet south of Eterna, through Cycling Road, and saved in front of Wayward Cave (I wanna catch a Gible, but it's so rare I had to exit because the Bronzors, Geodudes and Zubats annoyed me to the end. Ill try to catch one later this day. Wish me luck.

TEAM:

Donatello - Grotle - Lv 23
Grass Knot
Razor Leaf
Curse
Bite


Roll - Geodude - Lv 22
Magnitude
Rock Throw
Rock Polish
Selfdestruct

Slug - Lv 22
Rain Dance
Water Pulse
HP Rock
Mud Bomb


See ya guys.

Hey Tony, I'm pretty sure you can only get Gible after you get strength, it's in the second part of the cave, at least I'm pretty sure.
I'm in the Elite Four right now, I got past Victory Road, and I've defeated Sydney. I am going to battle Phoebe now, so I may even be finished by the next time I post.

And Tony, I think you can catch Gible now. I just went through Platinum, and I had captured one before even making it to Hearthrome City. I think it should be the same in Diamond and Pearl, unless I am forgetting something.
