6. Due to the fact that they didn't exist in RBY, Dark and Steel teams will be disallowed.
from the first post only the original types from r/b/y are allowed to be used


and another update from johto

trained my unown in sprout tower and got it to lvl 12 its hidden power is actually psychic type
beat falkner you can see the video here: youtube.com/watch?v=PY95cOceFpU

after that i went down and thru union cave, caught slowpoke, beat team rocket, beat rival and am now training to take on bugsy

current team:

unown: lvl 18
hidden power, psychic type (like you were expecting anything else)

slowpoke: lvl 19
watergun
swift
curse
tackle

and hm slave cyndaquil

also i am lvl hoppip and sunkern just till they learn synthesis and megadrain respectivly so i can breed them onto exeggcute when i catch it i hope thats not a violation of the rules as they wont be competing in anything but wild battles to lvl. and it wont be far

btw this update happened over the last few days and not all at once, would have gotten this done quicker but had overtime at work

Having read through the thread, I have decided to start Electric, because no one likes electric. I'll start in red (because I'd like my Pika to evolve, thank you very much), then go through Silver, Emerald, and Platinum. I'll need a ROM for all of them...

Also, if anyone can help me, there are NO emulators that play GB, GBC, GBA, and DS. No$Gba won't play Game Boy (color) games, and VBA can't use DS.

EDIT: Aw shoot, I have to use Mareep. ArgelBlargel! That line is WAY to overated.

Planned ending teams:

Raichu: Honcho
Electrode: Power Ball
Jolteon: Gonzales
Maganton: Ragnarok
Electabuzz: Skipper

Ampharos: Dumby
Magnaton: Magneeto
Electrode: OrboAwsmns (Orb of Awesomeness)
Lanturn: Sancho
Electabuzz: Billina (no odd egg...)
Jolteon: Megavolt

Manectric: Zapster
Raichu: Blade
Magnaton: Magna-orb
Lanturn: Double A
Minun: Olmar
Plusle: Louie

Luxray: Ion
Rotom: Motor (Ha ha, non-legend status FTW!)
Magnazone: CurrentEvo (my team captain shows off it's true form!)
Electivire: Wivern
Jolteon: Zappo
Raichu: Light Ball

How do you like?

Well, this should be good for me. I'll do Flying. And seeing that Emerald is the best, I'll use that.

You have to use all four series... Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh.

No, I meant that's what I'll start with. It makes me feel more relaxed starting with the one i'm best with.

*sighs* Read the rules on the first page. You go in this order:

Kanto - Johto(kanto) - Hoenn - Sinnoh

You do not start with Hoenn, you start with Kanto!

Well, whatever. Time to pick up my Blue again...

Anyway, I guess this is what I have so far.

In 4 Hours, I've made it to the 3rd gym. Sad....

Fearow-LV 32

Farfetch'd-LV 31

Pidgeotto-LV 34

Everything else is in my box, as it doesn't count toward the challenge. At least, I think. Besides, I don't think Charizard counts toward it. But I won't anyway.

Mattman's "Shocking" Adventure Chapter 1 Part 1: The rocky road ahead.

I started Red earlier today, and I named myself Mattman, and my rival Blade. I then proceded to choos a Bulbasaur for his mad HM Slave skilz. After defeating Blade, I went to get a Pikachu, Honcho. After he got to level 17 and learned Quick attack, I took on Brock, and after multiple tries, I finally beat him! Then I went on, and skipping multiple trainers, and going through mount moon, I got to Cereleun! I defeated Blade again, and went through Rt. 23-5 to reach bill... Also, I caught a Clefary and Abra, and since this was my first time playing, I decided to try the Mew glitch... well, another HM slave!

Honcho-Pikachu
lv 24
Hp:57
Thundershock - Main attack
Quick Attack - Side attack, ground killer
Thunder Wave - Pokemon Catcher
Growl - I-hate-ground-types move
Best Stat: Speed, 57
Worst Stat: Defence, 25

Mattman's "Shocking" Adventure Chapter 1 Part 2: Zaps and Teammates

After last part, my team has changed. After catching 10 pokemon to get a Flash HM, depositing Bulbasaur in favor of Mew, getting Voltorb (Power Ball) and going through Mt. Moon and other locations to get some training, I thought I was ready for Rock Tunnel. Nothing could have prepaired me for the fiasco inside.

There were Geodudes, Gravelers, Onixs, and Cubones thrown every which way, and all other trainers had Grass types. Worst of all, Geodudes at this point knew Self Destruct! However, after about 8 "Mattman whited out!" scenes, and a few levels spread about, I got to the end, where I speedily headed towards Celedon.

Once there, I got Eevee (Gonzales) and 2 thunderstones, evolving Gonzales and Honcho! I think it is training time...

Power Ball - Voltorb
lv 25
Hp:61
Tackle - Finisher
Screech - filler
Sonicboom - Main attack
Flash - I need it move
Best Stat: Speed, 60
Worst Stat: Attack, 26

Honcho-Raichu
lv 34
Hp:95
Thundershock - Main attack
Swift - Side attack
Thunder Wave - Pokemon Catcher
Growl - filler
Best Stat: Speed, 88
Worst Stat: Defence, 52

Gonzales-Jolteon
lv 25
Hp:75
Tackle - Attacking move
Sand Attack - Filler
Best Stat: Speed, 75
Worst Stat: Defence, 40

Hey, I was wondering if I can use videos to keep logs of my progress? I am thinking of doing a Lets Play and this would be fun to do at the same time. Anything not addressed in the video would be addressed in comment below the link in my post.

I'm ashamed to admit that I had actually given up on this challenge, just as I was facing the Sinnoh Elite Four. Therefore, I haven't played for several weeks. However, today I decided to give it a shot - Once again. Here goes.

6th Sinnoh entry
Version: Platinum
Type: Fire

After having realized that Bertha was just way too mean, I decided to go catch myself yet another Houndour and train it.

..Stupid idea.

As that didn't work out and took way too much time, I chose to train mainly my Infernape and my first Houndoom. After having grinded them both up to around level 80, I decided to take on the Elite Four once again.

Aaron was a joke.
Bertha was still the toughest of them, but still rather easily defeated.
Flint was pretty easy, too.
Lucian was pretty much a joke, too. I knocked them all out in one hit.
Cynthia wasn't too much of a challenge, either. Although I have to admit, I was a bit lucky. Every single time (That'd be 3 times) I used Dark Pulse on her Garchomp, it flinched.

So.. I finally did it, although I didn't become the first Fire-type Champion.

Anyway, here's my final team:


Infernape, lv. 83
Holding Fist Plate
- Aerial Ace
- Mach Punch
- Return
- Flame Wheel


Houndoom, lv. 81
Holding Razor Claw
- Sludge Bomb
- Flamethrower
- Dark Pulse
- Strength


Flareon, lv. 60
Holding Razor Fang
- Fire Fang
- Iron Tail
- Bite
- Last Resort


Rapidash, lv. 66
Holding Wise Glasses
- Fire Blast
- Flame Wheel
- Stomp
- Solarbeam


Houndoom, lv. 45

- Embargo
- Faint Attack
- Bite
- Fire Fang

Mattman's "Shocking" Adventure Chapter 1 Part 3: "Mini" update
Note: I will not update for the next two weeks. Also, I don't have stats. Sorry.


After last part, my team has changed. First thing I did was go through Team rockets base, and then the Tower of Terror. (which wasn't that bad) Then I rushed to Fushia and the Soul badge, where I gained access to the Power Plant, as well as Ragnarok and Skipper.

Then, I went back and defeated many trainers, evolving Power Ball (Electrode) and Ragnarok (Magnaton), finishing my team. I also checked on serebii and found out (to my horrer) that Electrode don't naturally learn electric attacks. I gave him my one Thunderbolt TM. That's about all for this part. Oh, and I whited out about 3923 times.

Power Ball - Electrode
lv 37
Thunderbolt - Main attack
Light Screen - filler, will be replaced with BOOM!
Sonicboom - finnisher
Flash - I need it move

Honcho-Raichu
lv 37
Thundershock - Main attack
Strength - Side attack
Thunder Wave - Pokemon Catcher
Swift - Ender of the EVIL evasion modifiers

Gonzales-Jolteon
lv 37
Thundershock - Attacking move
Quick Attack - Side move
Tackle - filler to be replaced with Double Kick
Sand attack - filler to be replaced with Pin Missle

Ragnarok - Magnaton
lv 37
Thundershock - Main attack
Sonicboom - Side move
Tackle - filler to be replaced with BOOM!
some filler attack

Skipper - Electabuzz
lv 38
Thundershock - Main attack, to be replaced with Thunderpunch
Strength - Side move
Psychic - DIE FOOLISH GROUND TYPES! move
Swift - filler
