Before starting, I used Advance Map to edit route 102 and replace Wurmple with Latias. I also edited one of the flowers in Littleroot to hold a masterball so I could actually catch her.


Update 1: Littleroot-route 104-Petalburg city
Spoiler:

My day started off great. My mother stuffed me in the back of a moving truck and forced me to ride in it to our new town of Littleroot. What the hell, mother. I'm sorry that your precious stuffed animals can't ride in the moving truck, but I'm your daughter. Can't you clear out the front seat and let me in the car?

So when the truck finally stopped and the stuffy air was let out, my mother ambushed me with some mumbo jumbo about how great the new town was, dragging me into the house and making me go set my clock. She then ran back upstairs and told me that it was so nice of the pokemon movers to set up our new house! Hardly. They somehow mixed up my bedsheets with my mothers and now I have purple and white instead of green.

I grabbed a potion out of my computer and went back downstairs, to be ambushed by my mother once again to run to the TV. Sorry, mom, we missed the news report for dad. Then she told me to go say hi to the nieghbors. I hate saying hi, but anything to get away from you, crazy lady.

I went back outside and tried to run out of town, but was stopped by someone who said I needed a pokemon. Great. Looks like I need to go say hi afterall.

I went next door and met my neighbor Brendan. He seemed pretty cool. I hope he doesn't start hitting on me. Anyway, he basically said hi and then bailed, leaving me to try to leave town again. This time, the guy that stopped me told me that I should go save the person who was screaming like a banshee up ahead. Sure, NOW you're singing a different tune.

To make a really long story short, the guy told me to grab a pokeball, I did, I threw it, A little orange fluffball named Torchic came out. I knocked out the Zigazoon. The professor thanked me, gave me the pokemon, and told me to go find Brendan. Seems like he's too scared to go out alone anymore. I named the Torchic he gave me Slave. I went north through Oldale town and found Brendan on route 103, scribbling on a clipboard. I said hi, he challenged me to a battle. Slave beat his Mudkip, but I can tell that little tadpole will grow to be a problem for my Slave. We went back to his dad's lab and he gave us pokeballs, requesting that we go fill a pokedex. (I'm telling you, he's terrified of going outside).

Freedom! I bolted for route 102 but was stopped by my mother. Oh, god not again. Good fortune seemes to be on my side, because she just gave me a new pair of shoes and wished me luck on my journey. Yeah, that's what you get for stuffing me in a moving truck, mother dear. On my way out, I saw something reflect in the grass and went over. I picked up the item, which looked like a pokeball with an M on it- score, Masterball! I put it in my bag.

When I went out on Route 102, the first pokemon I encountered was a red flying pokemon. It was named Latias. I immediatley threw the Master ball I had found at it, securing my partner. Luckily, I had found a partner I liked on my second try. Unluckily, it only know Psywave. A little miffed at the crappy movepool, I went west and battled a couple trainers, and upon leveling up Pheobe learned Wish. Okay, not offensive, but now she could heal herself. I could handle that. I went back to Oldale town and went north to train, but found nothing but Poocheyna, which she couldn't do anything to. I caught one of them and named it P. On my way to leave I found a Wingull. It looked like it would be useful so I caught it and named it UPS, since it looked like it could deliver things

After battling all the trainers on route 104, I snuck through petalburg city to the pokecenter, where I healed Pheobe and the others and went into the grass to train. I caught a Zigazoon, who looked like he liked to steal things. I named him thief. He can steal whatever he wants, as long as it isn't from me and I get to get whatever he does steal. Shortly after I found a Ralts. It looked cool, so I named him flash. Then I realized he only knew growl, and he wasn't so cool anymore.

When we finished training, I contemplated going to the gym and seeing my father. It was late, however, and I wasn't really interested in seeing him too soon. It was his fault I got stuffed into a moving truck. We went to Oldale town and picked up a room in the pokecenter for the night.


tl;dr
-received Torchic, named Slave
-Battled Brendan, won, recieved pokdex and pokeballs
-Caught Latias, named Pheobe
-Caught Poochyena, named P
-Caught Wingull, named UPS
-Had a bunch of trainers challenge me. Was easier once Pheobe learned wish.
-Arrived in petalburg. managed to get to pokecenter and back to route 104 without dad seeing me.
-Grinded Pheobe to level 9, During which I caught Zigazoon(Thief) and Ralts (Flash).

Doing my solo Staryu challenge. In a sort of LP way at the same time.
First of all, named myself Awesome and my rival Loser!
Then, a guy randomly walks up to me, brings me to his "lab" and offers me balls.

Oh jolly good. What a fun time.


Took me a Bulbasaur. Named him Dump.


Ah, more fun times with my best buddy Loser!
Ever notice that Prof. Oak bails you out when you lose to Gary, but he doesn't bail his own grandson when you beat him. Harsh.


Got a parcel that conveniently wrapped up so I can't see it.
Spoiler:
20 bucks says it's porn.



Guess I left a DUMP. Yeah, that joke was really CORNY. Shutting up now.


Finally, my Water Pokemon learns a WATER attack.


Hmm... a guy who's oddly facing away from normal people towards a tree. Totally averag-
Spoiler:
Another 20 bucks says he's waxing the old candle stick. If you understand my terms.



Dude, I'm not the only one that's scaring away little kidsbugs.


O.O
Awkward.


Just crushed little kids with my star, gonna go heal now.


Hmm... an unconscious kid. What to do? I know! Check his pockets for cash!


Wow. If 10,000 light-years to him is two steps, then somebody's been dropped as a baby.


O.o
Just say nothing and keep on walking


Just beat Brock in two moves. No joke.
Sweet! I can now legally flash to people!

And that is where this part ends. Enjoy!

Solo Run Part 4

-arrived in Fuchsia City easily by bypassing most of the bikers on Cycling Road.
-head straight to the gym and won with ease(more people using psychic types than poision whats up with that). I obtained the Soulbadge, access to Surf, and Tm Toxic.
-now i explore the city and obtained a new fishing rod and i ran into the Warden who is missing his teeth.
-tried out the Safari game and i picked up many nifty things along the way to the end. I managed to catch a Parasect to free Paras of its duties and also i got back the Wardens teeth and Hm Surf
-outside i rush to the Pokemon Center and release Paras and get Lapras for Surf. I also teach Parasect flash and cut. Next i give the Warden back his teeth and obtained Hm Strenght which i also teach to Lapras.
-so i overpower Jynx some more and spend my money on coins at the Game Corner for Ice Beam before finally setting sail to sea
-bypassed every trainer in route and landed on the Seafoam Islands
-safely navigated my way outside the Seafoam Islands(i had to sadly defeat Articuno :(), bypassed the remaining trainers, and reached Cinnabar Island
-had to find the key inside te Pokemon Mansion first and it didnt take to long to obtain it
-rushed straight to the gym after a quick heal and defeated Blaine for my VolcanoBadge and Tm Fire Blast.
-I head out and im rudely interuppted by Bill who takes me to One Island and now i get tasked with a side quest before my final gym battle but I accept and explore the first island first
-obtained HM Rock Smash and tought it to Lapras
-defeated Moltres atop Mt. Ember and set sail to Island two
-one Two Island i have been requested with yet another side quest so off to Three Island
-on Three Island i defeat the Bikers causing trouble on the island and rescue Lostelle and we safely fade out back to Two Island and i hand over the meteroite and got a Moon Stone for Lostelles dad..wtf for all that hard work -___-'
-anyway i talk to Bill and Celio and i head back to Cinnabar Island
-i high tail it to Viridian City for my last badge and again Muchu simply dominates earning me the Earthbadge and Tm Earthquake.
-lastly i heal at the Pokemon Center grab Pidgey and tought him fly. I then flew to Celadon City where i spent money on coins in order to purchase Tm Shadow Ball, tought it to Much, and i save.

END

See you all at the Elite 4 :D. Wish me and Muchu luck.

If we want to join, do we post the pokemon's final evolution, or the one we catch in the beginning of the game?

At any rate, I want to do a challenge with Sentret (Furret). I'll be catching one in Gold as soon as I get pokeballs.

*Edit: I have a question. If your pokemon that you're completing the challenge with dies, can you send out an HM slave and use a Revive?

- Got the MYSTERY EGG, Totodile hit level 7
- Beat my rival Gary’s Chikorita
- Delivered the MYSTERY EGG to Prof. Elm
- Caught a level 2 Pidgey (future FLY slave)
- Caught a level 3 male Sentret…Officially began solo challenge.
- Arrived in Violet City, defeated the Sprout Tower, got the HM FLASH
- Challenged Falkner with a level 13 Sentret with the moveset: Tackle, Defense Curl, Quick Attack. Had a Berry attached to Sentret.
- Defeated Falkner, got the ZEPHYRBADGE
- Taught Sentret Mud-Slap
- Sentret hit level 15 and evolved into Furret on Route 32
- Got TM39 SWIFT in Rock Cave. Replaced Furret’s Tackle with Swift.
- Caught a level 6 Geodude (future STRENGTH and ROCK SMASH slave)
- Defeated TEAM ROCKET in the Slowpoke Well.
- Challenged Bugsy with a level 20 Furret with the moveset: Swift, Defense Curl, Quick Attack, Mud-Slap.

I'm probably going to catch a Hoothoot at some point, too...I'd rather have that than a Pidgey as my HM slave since it can learn Flash, too.

Well, I joined really late (today, in fact) so I didn't have time to post it, but I just finished a solo run with Kingdra on HG, who ended up at lvl 90. I use an emulator so I was able to "trade" a Horsea egg from a previous SS game, of which I had to breed several before I could get a decent nature (ended up with Rash, which ups SpA and lowers SpD), using Pokesav. No egg moves, though.

Because I finished already, this post will be fairly concise and pretty short, and I don't remember a lot of the levels for gym battles either. If in the future I decide to do another one while waiting for B/W to come out I will try to go slower and in more detail as well.

I did not use a single revive on Horsea/Seadra/Kingra either. If he fainted I reset it, and this only happened in a few early battles, once with the Kimono Girls (damn Jolteon), once with Blue, and a couple times with Red (Lapras' Blizzard/Hail FTL). I also only used healing items in-battle with Red, no one else (again, Blizzard/Hail FTL).

Here's my journey.

Spoiler:

So I chose Totodile as my starter for HM slave reasons, and was at Cherrytown by the time I was able to "trade" a Pidgey I caught for the egg. I quickly hatched it, and we were on our way. Let me tell you, it was hell grinding to a high enough level in order to beat sprout tower. I think I got to level 12 or 13 before I started Sprout tower with just Bubble, picking up water gun on the way. This was the only real difficult part that I had with Horsea as my soloer.

Just before Violet City, I picked up a Geodude and another Pigdey for HM slaves.

I did lose to my rival the second time we faced because his Bayleef killed me. The second time around I used enough smokescreens to get him to miss with razor leaf.

In Ilex Forest I was able to teach Horsea Headbutt, which made it a lot easier to handle the water types. I ended up carrying Headbutt for a real long time until I taught it Waterfall just before fighting the Elite 4.

I also had some trouble with Bugsy and his Scyther using U-Turn as well, but I was able to defeat him the second time.

The middle part of the game up to Clair was pretty uneventful, I kicked ass up and down the region. The dragon gym was memorable though because I reached lvl 57 with Seadra right before the battle with Clair, which is when she learns Dragon Pulse. With the new move, I quickly defeated Clair, did the whole Dragon's Den thing, and then beat the Kimono Girls, killed Ho-oh, and set off for the Elite Four with a newly evolved Kingdra using the Dragon Scale I found in Mt. Mortar.

At the Elite 4, I kicked everybody's butt, My Kindra was at level 62ish when I started, and ended up at level 66 in the HOF. I was in the yellow once, and that was to Gyrados' Dragon Pulse at the beginning of the battle with Lance. Then I killed all the other with Dragon Pulse for the dragons and Surf for Aero and Charizard. For some reason even though I had taught Ice Beam to Kindra I didn't use it...hmmm.

Then it was off to the rest of Kanto, which was laughably easy with my lvl 70ish Kingdra. The moves I had were Waterfall, Surf, Ice Beam, and Dragon Pulse, which never changed from the first Elite 4 battle to the end. This moveset is only walled by Empoleon, who isn't in this game. It was OHKO after another until I faced the greatest Gym Leader, Blue. A this point I was around level 85 I think. The first time I faced him, he was able to kill me with his Machamp who had DynamicPunch and No Guard, so it never misses, and the confusion killed me. I tried to fight it out but failed. The second time I was able to fight it out, and so I got the Earth Badge.

Next step was to fight the Elite 4 again. I did have to heal after almost every battle except for the one against Karen, strangely enough. I used an Elixer for the first time, and then destroyed Lance with Ice Beam, and a Surf for CHarizard and a couple Dragon Pulses for Gyarados. 2nd HOF at lvl 87.

After that, I finished the Suicine sidequest, raising my level to lvl 89 in the process. I killed Suicine, btw. I also killed one Snorlax and caught the second with a Heavy Ball just for the heck of it.

Then I went to Mt. Silver. Unlike the Elite 4, I brought my HM slaves with me (I had just Kingdra with me in the Elite 4), and went up and up until I found Red!

Now I had fought him in the Gold and Silver versions, but never had in the HG/SS versions before. His team is the greatest of all time across all games for an in-game opponent.

It took a few tries and in the end I had to use 4 Full Restores and a Hyper Potion for the first time in a battle, but I eventually killed that pesky Lapras and the rest went down relatively tamely. Ended up at lvl 90.


Geez, I can't post pictures till I get 15 posts, oh well.
I may come back and edit this post then...


Pictures are now up! The first two show the HOF entries from the first and second E4 battles, the third shows the Legendary Badge you get for defeating Red, as well as Kingdra's final level.

Please put me on the Champions list!
