mondays, the reason your lanturn sends out hearts is because you used a heal ball, or a luxury ball, to catch it. i cant remember which. (that was a pointless comment)

ANYWAYS!
Picked a Turtwig,
Skipped most of the trainers,
I caught an onix in Oreburgh mine,
and my projected team will be
Onix
Bastiodon
Probopass
I despair that i cannot evolve Onix into Steelix.
I would have a Rampardos, but you can only have one in Platinum, according to your Trainer ID. If its even, you can only get a Shieldon. Oh and Nosepass can be caught in Mt. Coronet, only in Platinum. Thats neat-o.

Umm... Anybody know how i can go Underground in no$gba? It gives me a communication error everytime i try. I want a fossil. If i cannot have one i will be depressed, and be unable to continue the challenge.

EDIT: Ok, Rhydon will make a comeback. I still cannot have a Rhyperior, because I would need to trade...
And maybe Sudowoodo, but im not sure i would have the patience to train a 4th pokemon...

This has confused me too. On my Pearl ROM I was able to go Underground with no trouble at all. However, on Platinum, using the same emulator, I got a communication error like you.

Okay, so I've finally decided. After completing this challenge with Fire-type, I wanted to give it another go with one of the types, that I've been humiliating throughout my previous challenge, which means Grass, Bug, Ice or Steel.

For obvious reasons I can't do Steel.

I figured Ice would be a problem, seeing as they are pretty rare to come by early in any of the games.

I considered Bug for quite a while, but since someone already completed the challenge with the Bug-type, I figured I didn't wanna do that one, either.

So, I decided on taking the challenge once again, this time with the Grass-type, to see if I can regain my respect for Grass-types after having trashed Grass-types several times during my previous challenge. I'll start off with Red version. I'll probably post my first update within an hour or so.

EDIT:

Right, so it's time for my first update.

1st Kanto entry
Version: Red
Type: Grass

Not all that much to say, I guess. I named myself Pekin, (cuz I always do that..) and named my rival David. I picked a Bulbasaur, obviously, I kicked David's ass, got a parcel for Prof. Oak, which I delivered. Then I got my Pokédex - Woohoo. After having grinded Bulbasaur a bit, I decided to move on to Pewter City, where I evolved Bulbasaur, and then KO'd every single Pokémon in Brock's gym with Vine Whip. I think I'll regain my respect for Grass-types rather quickly in this challenge. Anyways, this is where I am now. I'm on my way to Mt. Moon, where I think I'll catch myself a Paras. My next update will probably be when I beat Misty or Lt. Surge. Not sure.

Current team:


Ivysaur, Lv. 18
- Tackle
- Growl
- Leech Seed
- Vine Whip

after all the training and after i came through the victory road my pokemons were:

lvl 56 Scyther
-Steel Wing
-Wing Attack
-Agility
-Swords Dance
The hearth of the team. he just sets up and then sweeps to the victory

lvl 51 Gyarados
-Surf
-Ice Beam
-Bite
-Dragon Rage
The special sweeper (not :D). he got rid of Lorelei's Jynx, Slowbro and of my rivals Rhydon.. they were the biggest threats to the scyther

lvl 34 Aerodactyl
-Wing Attack
-Earthquake
-Ancient Power
-Supersonic
The best pokemon of th.... he did nothing :D he is underleveled

lvl 50 Golbat
-Confuse Ray
-Air Cutter
-Poison Fang
-Mean Look
It helped beating lorelei who was the biggest threat to our team. it poisoned 2 pokes led me to victory

lvl 51 Dodrio
-Tri Attack
-Drill Peck
-Pursuit
-Rage
IT did the final blow on the Lapras

lvl 45 Fearow
-Drill Peck
-Pursuit
-Mirror Move
-Fury Attack
It did nothing as usual..

It was a though battle against Lorelei but i made it (from the 2nd run). Bruno was easy with gyara clearing the first poke and then scyther came in to sweep.Agata was a free sweep for Scyther and so was Drake.
My rivals battle:
I led with Gyara and he with pidgeoto - 2HKO with ice beam and he just sand attacked me
he switched to rhydon - i miss surf and he rock tomb 1HKO
i switched to Fearow and restored Gyara - 1HKO rock tomb
i switched Aero and healed gyara - 1HKO rock tomb
switched to Gyara - surf 1HKO
he sent out Alakazam - with a lot of struggling and a lot of healing i killed him
he sent Exeggutor- he killed me
i sent out scyther - when i was SD and Agility, he sleeped me and egg bombed me. i recovered with full restores and began the sweep
1HKO Wing Attack Exeggutor, Charizard and Gyarados... and i win :D so this is it with the challange in Kanto right? :D moving to crystal

Edit: didn't see that i acsidentally double posted... and i deleted the first part.. but nvm

VBA is still evil, so I had to delete it. And when I use No$Zoomer (waaaay better than No$Gba) the game is hyperactive and I cant play like that.

SO I'll just Postpone my Water Challenge and finish my Ground challenge. To hell with "getting to know the map better". That's what walkthroughs are for.

So, if school lets me, Ill be the Sinnoh Champion in...umm...about 2 months

Okay, I've decided to join this challenge. Kanto is first up. So I'll be playing using Pokemon Yellow. My chosen type is bug.

Journal:
-Got given Pikachu, beat Rival (Gary) with ease.
-Went straight to Viridian City to pick up Oaks Parcel.
-As soon as all that was done I headed to Viridian Forest to capture my first Pokemon - Caterpie. Pikachu was deposited. Could return as a HM Slave later on.
-Trained my hardest in Viridian Forest, defeating more Caterpies, Metapods and Pidgeys than you can imagine (or so it seemed). So pissed that Weedles are extinct on Yellow.
-Caterpie evolves into Metapod at Level 7
-Metapod evolves into Butterfree at Level 10

So now I move on to my first trainer battles. I'll go back and battle Gary later.

Current team:

Butterfree Level 10

Planned team:

Butterfree

Parasect

Venomoth

Pinsir

Scyther

2nd Kanto entry
Version: Red
Type: Grass

Right, so I just stomped Lt. Surge, and I figured it was time for my second update.
After humiliating Brock, I went straight to Mt. Moon and caught myself a Paras. It turned out to be useless, so I grinded like hell, until both Ivysaur and Paras were at level 24, which is when Paras evolves. So, I easily made my way through Mt. Moon with Ivysaur and Parasect. When I arrived at Cerulean City, I went straight to the gym, where I KO'd every single Pokémon. After that, I went to see Bill (Oh yea, and I caught an Oddish) - After having seen Bill and helped him with his little problem, I decided to grind the **** out of my Pokémon, cos' I wanted Ivysaur and Oddish to evolve. Having done that, I easily made it through Ss. Anne, and then I went to the Vermillion gym, where Gloom trashed 'em all with Petal Dance. So this is where I am now, with the following team:


Venusaur, Lv. 37
- Tackle
- Poisonpowder
- Razor Leaf
- Vine Whip


Parasect, Lv. 37
- Cut
- Body Slam
- Leech Life
- Spore


Gloom, Lv. 37
- Stun Spore
- Sleep Powder
- Acid
- Petal Dance

Yesterday I started my Sinnoh Journey on my Ground Mono, but I only got Turtwig to Lv 9. Not much progess...

But now I made a lot of progress (got my first badge)

Rocks can Roll

After doing everything you need to do In Jubilife, I owned my rival and every trainer in my way to Oreburgh City. When I got there, I caught a Geodude (ROLL IS BACK!) and trained him to lvl 14, and Evolved Turtwig (Grounder).

About the gym...it was easy. Roll swept through Roark with ease using Rock Smash, and survived with about 1/3 of his HP.

After that, Roll owned some Galactic Grunts, again with Rock Smash. Woohoo!

Now the Team

Grounder - Grotle - Lv 18
Tackle
Curse
Absorb
Razor Leaf

Roll - Geodude - Lv 16

Rock Throw
Magnitude
Rock Smash
Rock Polish

Later guys.

Well, seeing as I’m doing the Grass Monotype challenge, I began with Bulbasaur. My rival, Rubii challenged me, but lost. Unfortunately, I had to use a potion, but… such is fate, eh?

Well, afterwards, I train up to Level 20, and go to Viridian City, transfer the package and fight Rubii again, this time, two on one.

Boss Fight: Zeta vs. Rubii

My Pokemon:
Ivysaur: Lv. 20

Rubii’s Pokemon
Pidgey Lv. 9
Charmander Lv. 8

I then went through Viridian Forest, utterly decimating anyone foolish enough to stand in my way, before finally reaching Pewter. I went straight to the gym and battled Brock and his crony. It was sad.

Boss Fight: Zeta vs. Brock

My Pokemon
Ivysaur: Lv. 21

Brock’s Pokemon
Geodude: Lv. 12
Onix: Lv. 14

Next time, we’re going through Mt. Moon, and ending off after beating Misty.

Current Team:
Ivysaur: Lv. 21
-Tackle
-Growl
-Leech Seed
-Vine Whip.

i'm still not able to start on pearl, but i'm already planning a bit on my team. according to bulbapedia, theres the shinx line, pacharisu and the pikachu line in the d/p-sinnoh dex, so i dont really have much choice, only with fire it would be worse i think... so my planned team is:

Luxray as physical sweeper with crappy movepool (Crunch, Spark/Thunder Fang, Iron Tail, Return(?)) the other elemental fangs would be nice, but i would need to breed fo them, with a hippowdon, which isnt easy to get and then i would have to train the new luxray up to the level of the rest of the team, that cant be worth it, with this version things should still go faster
Pacharisu as support thing & revive fodder (mainly revive fodder i think) (Super Fang, Toxic, Sweet Kiss, Charm/Light Screen)
Raichu as main pokemon and mixed sweeper (like in emerald) (Thunderbolt, Dig, Brick Break, Grass Knot) charge beam would also be nice, but i prefer some type coverage, since this will probably be my main problem (together with raichus and luxrays useless defence stats, anything i cant ohko will be a serious threat for me)
hm slaves will probably be: chimchar (cut, strength rock smash, rock climb), starly (fly, defog), psyduck (surf, waterfall)
maybe i wont need starly at all, since defog is only against annoying lowered accuracy and fly is only useful, but not necessary

for 3rd evolution stage before misty you don't have to be too patient, if you use only one pokemon and do the whole ss.anne quest before challenging her. but if you reach this stage before even doing the nugget bridge or at least getting the dig tm, that requires A LOT of patience which i wouldnt have, i would just attempt misty again and again till i beat her by luck xD ... or give up if it gets too annoying

I've made alot of progress. Why are there so many Bug Catchers who don't know that evolving your Pokemon actually makes them better? So many Caterpies and Metapods defeated along the way. Nevermind that though.

Journal:
-Beat Gary again. Almost as easy as last time, even with a flying type Pokemon in his Arsenal.
-Defeated all the trainers in Viridian Forest and then Brock, picking up a Boulder Badge.
-Defeated all the trainers outside/inside Mt Moon, including Jessie and James. Captured my Paras! It's a ***** to train though.
-After training Paras and giving him the Rare candies I picked up, I headed straight for the Nugget Bridge, defeated Gary and all the trainers. Captured my Venonat! These bug Pokemon are popping up quickly. Awesome.
-Trained up Venonat, who was slightly easier than Paras. Headed for Misty's Gym.
-Defeated Misty's trainers. Pathetically easy, considering I was having trouble using Venonat and Paras after the Nugget Bridge.
-Defeated Misty, and earned myself a Cascade Badge.
-Beat the stupid Rocket, making use of Paras' Leech Life on Drowzee. The actual bug type attacks in First Gen are abnormally bad. Not to mention there are only 3.
-After defeating the trainers outside Vermilion, I headed for the S.S. Anne, rubbing my hands and thinking of all the great experience I'll earn from facing all the trainers.
-Paras evolved into Parasect. However, it lacked a good move. So I taught it Body Slam
-Defeated Gary yet again. Obtained cut.
-Game saved outside Lt. Surge's Gym. He shouldn't be too difficult.

Team:

Venonat Level 25

Parasect Level 25

Butterfree Level 25

Oh, and Charmander is a HM Slave (Cut).

My next objective is to defeat Surge, pass Rock tunnel, pass Silph and get to Pinsir/Scyther. Not sure I can be bothered to win 2 lots of 6,500 coins, so I might just wait until I get to the Safari Zone. Oh, and by the way, Butterfree told me that he was never supposed to evolve from Venonat. Venonat confirmed this for me. Mystery solved.

This is incredibly fun. I'm glad I chose the bug type. Thanks for creating this challenge OP!

Onto the Pokemon League!

UPDATE!

- Got a call from Prof. Elm about Team Rocket in Goldenrod.
- Flew to Goldenrod and made quick work of all the grunts and the executives.
- After all of that was done I flew back to Mahogany Town.
- Headed west and defeated all the trainers.
- Entered the Ice Cave.
- Worked my way through Ice Cave and obtained HM06 and other items on the way.
- Arrived in Blackthorn City.
- Went to the mart and bought some Hyper Potions, Revives and Full Heals.
- After that, I went straight to the gym and defeated all the trainers.
- Defeated Clair (Suprisingly easy, Pidgeotto defeated the first Pokemon, and then it was Jumpluff all the way as she defeated the rest of the team with SlPowder + Leech Seed + Attack).
- Went to Dragon's Den and did all of that stuff.
- Clair handed over the Rising Badge and gave me a DragonBreath TM.
- Went outside the shrine and collected the Dragon Fang.

My Team -

Pidgeotto @Pink Bow (Level 35)

- Fly
- Wing Attack
- Quick Attack
- Mud-Slap

Butterfree @Amulet Coin (Level 35)

- Psybeam
- Confusion
- Gust
- Sleep Powder

Jumpluff @Miracle Seed (Level 36)

- Headbutt
- Synthesis
- Sleep Powder
- Leech Seed

Golbat (Level 35)

- Wing Attack
- Bite
- Leech Life
- Confuse Ray

Gyarados (Level 35)

- Surf
- Strength
- Dragonbreath
- Icy Wind

HM Slaves:

Totodile (Cut, Surf, Whirlpool)
Paras (Cut, Flash)
Tauros (Surf, Strength)

I have a dilemma, should I give Gyarados a NeverMeltIce or a Dragon Fang? To power up Icy Wind or DragonBreath?
