Ultimate Solo Challenge Update #11 with Weedle

Ah, there we go, other people posted. I was waiting for someone else to update before I did again. As a result, this is one of my biggest updates.

-So I went in and beat Falkner, thanks to X Special Defense, those X items are so good in Gen 2.
-Walked to Azalea, and did the Slowpoke Well thing.
-Beat all the gym trainers, but couldn't beat Bugsy, so I tried to leave town.
-Then there was my rival. I had to reset the game repeatedly until he decided not to use Curse with Gastly. Curse damage + Reflect + Bayleef healing with Synthesis isn't very easy to beat.
-Went back and beat Bugsy.
-Got through the Ilex Forest, beat a bunch of trainers, and got to Goldenrod.
-Went to the Department Store and bought a bunch of Lemonades.
-I beat Whitney fairly easily. Everyone always complains about her Miltank, but that was the easiest gym so far for me.
-Beat most of the trainers between Goldenrod/Ecruteak. There were way more than I expected.
-Entered the Bug-Catching Contest and lost with a Beedrill.
-Tried to fight my rival in the Burned Tower, but he was too strong, so I left town.
-Went and beat all the trainers between Ecruteak and Olivine.
-Beat all the trainers in the Lighthouse.
-Went east from Ecruteak and beat some trainers between there and Mahogany.
-Beat trainers on the way up to the Lake of Rage.
-THEN I went and beat my rival since I had leveled up quite a bit now.
-Beat Morty. Only problems I had were Haunter taking forever to kill since he spams Hypnosis, and Gengar being way too strong so I had to use 3 X Special Defenses.
-Went and beat some of the swimming trainers, and got to Cianwood.
-Got the SecretPotion and the Shuckle (which got boxed) and left the fight with Eusine alone for now.
-Beat all the Gym 5 trainers and Chuck.
-Went and sold TMs, and I accidentially sold Flash. That'll be fun later.
-Went and handed over the SecretPotion, and then challenged Jasmine.
-That's where I am now. I have to use X S.D. just to live through Magnemite's Thunderbolt, and Steelix has so much Defense I can barely hurt him. It's enough that I can still win though.

Here's the pictures from this update. I forgot to take one for Whitney. The ones for Morty and Chuck are in worse quality than normal since the text auto-scrolls when you have it on fast so I barely had time to get into my cell phone's camera. Also, myrrhman, I'm not listed as having beat Kanto yet.

Falkner: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn205/S_K_F/1205111045a_254515.jpg

Can you say two in a row?

I beat gold with scyther today

that's my third solo challenge beaten, so I decided to give a review on each one and side notes

Nidoqueen was my first solo challenge, and it was on red.It took a few tries, but at level 70-80 it was kind of easy. Difficulty was 5/10

Octillery was a pokemon I had never used before, but when it came up i tried it and it was a beast. Once it got to the 80s it could OHKO anything in its path. Difficulty 4/10

Scyther was a hard one. It had trouble with whitney, the first time ever i had trouble with her. Bruno's onix was hard and annoying, but a few swords dances it OHKO d it.
Difficulty was 8/10

Ultimate Solo Challenge Update #12 with Weedle

Johto seems to be moving along MUCH faster than Kanto.

-I used X items to get through Jasmine.
-Went back to Mahogany Town, and beat Red Gyarados by running away from it (lol).
-Beat the Team Rocket hideout, Lance's Dragonite was really helpful to be on a team with.
-Beat Pryce with pretty much no trouble.
-Saved the Radio Tower (why were there so many TR guys there anyway? That took me forever, especially the first TR Executive with his Weezing and 5 Koffings).
-Beat Clair after a few tries using X items.
-Went and did the stuff in the Dragon's Den.
-Went and got the Master Ball
-Now I'm at the Kimono Girls, which is one of the most challenging parts of this somehow. I usually get through Umbreon with almost no health, and Espeon is both faster than me and it can OHKO me. Once I get through that I should be good for a little while. I forgot a picture with Jasmine so I took it right after the battle instead.

Pictures from this update:
Jasmine: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn205/S_K_F/1208111214a_263876.jpg
Pryce: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn205/S_K_F/1208111346a_291350.jpg
Clair: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn205/S_K_F/1208111346a_291350.jpg

I'd like to sign up for an Ultimate Solo Challenge with Umbreon.
Game Name: Umbra
Username: Facelift

I already beat Sapphire, and I'm moving on to Fire Red.

FR UPDATE:
After hacking in Umbreon, I did the usual routine, and battled Green. After beatin his wimpy charmander, I beat him yet again by the E4 entrance, this time with a LV9 Umbreon against his LV9 Charmander and Pidgey. Needless to say, it was very easy.

EDIT: I decided that as long as I'm posting here anyways, I may as well tell u guys what I'm doing. Currently I'm still stuck on the Kimono Girls. I'm trying to grind Weedle to be faster than Espeon, and I hate grinding. Also, myrrhman, that's fine and thanks!

YAY!
I beat Kanto!
Spoiler:


So, since I left off at beating Green, I'll continue
from there:


I trained up to lvl 16 and took on Brock. After
that, I went through Mount Moon and all, and then I found Misty. I pwnzed her,
especially Starmie, since it's vulnerable to Dark moves. Basically,
I spammed pursuit. After that, I headed up the Nugget Bridge
after being challenged by (and pwning) Green.


I defeated the rocket and headed to Bill's
house.


Turning him back human, I then went to the S.S.
Something (forgot the name). I trained and got HM1. I found myself in
need of a slave. So I got Meowth and defeated Lt. Surge. I headed on
to Celadon, and busted Rocket's operation, beat Giovanni, and got the Silph
Scope. I went to the Lavender Tower and beat Green again, and fought my way to
the top. I saved Mr. Fuji and got the Pokeflute.


After going back and beating Erika, I got
the Tea. I beat Koga, and went to Saffron, clearing out
Rockets, Green, and Giovanni. I got the Master Ball, but threw it away.



I headed to Cinnabar and beat Blaine. After that, I
did the Islands thing and went to Viridian. Beating Giovanni, I finally
went to Victory Road.


Victory Road was a lame excuse of a trial, and I
got out. Depositing my slaves (Meowth, Lapras, and Spearrow), I bought
96 full restores and pwned the league.


Lorelei- 4/10 difficulty since she spammed Full
Restore


Bruno- 6/10 difficulty since half his pokemon
were fighting type


Agatha was so easy I laughed.


Lance's Dragonite was the only one that gave me trouble





Finally, the time came for me to defeat
Green.


Pidgeot-Easy


Rhydon-Easy


Exeggcutor-Sleep powder spam


Charizard-Damn his Fire Blast


Gyarados- Easy but was a Thrash spammer


Alakazam-Easy

Pokémon FireRed: Azumarill Solo Run
Chapter 2: Viridian Forest, Poisoned Marill, Thanks to Weedle


Ah, it's been a long time since I had a challenge. Anyway, I have no internet connection so I might as well play this. So, I last saved in Pallet Town and off to Route 1 I go. Firstly, I got a Town Map. Then, I found a Rattata and defeated it with some Tackles. I decided to grind for a while and due to that, Marill's now level 7. Then, I arrived in Viridian and healed Marill. Now that I dealed with that old guy and got this useless Teachy TV, I arrived in Viridian Forest. I grinded and while grinding, I refuse to fight against Weedle. But, I had to fight against a trainer who had a Weedle and I was poisoned. Then, Marill fainted and did the Pokémon Center blah blahs. And I learned my lesson. Always buy potions, antidotes or whatever when travelling. Bought 3 potions and 7 antidotes and I will continue my journey again blah blah. So I grinded but, I didn't noticed that Marill was at level 8 lol. Then I have to fight this trainer with a Weedle who is at level 9 but I managed to defeat him. Made it to Pewter and found a Jigglypuff.
Didn't make me that sleepy. Anyway, I thought of battling Brock but...I guess I'll have to grind for a while. So, I grinded and, the end.

Marill ♀
~ Tackle, Defense Curl, Tailwhip
~ Level 9

So I've just recently attempted to download VBA and all the necessary ROMs under my cousin's discretion and, amidst that little fiasco, I asked him what would be the best way to get acquainted with Pokémon on a very general scale. I told him I wanted an extreme challenge (just because of my competitive nature) and he led me here.

SO HERE I AM.

I'm going to try and make my way through an ultimate with Magikarp--my cousin's to blame.

Oh, and I've never actually owned a Pokémon game of my own. No background knowledge, no tactics... what could possibly go wrong?



80s out.

EDITx2:

125 - Magikarp
Spoiler:
For this run, I'm going to list everything that sucks in order of play-through:

--Grinding a Karp to Lv. 15 to learn Tackle on Route 1
--Brock. ಠ_ಠ
--More grinding to avoid becoming Gary-sushi @ Cerulean Bridge
--THE "GRASS LASS".



To be continued...

I feel like trying to go through this with a Kangskhan. I got the time

^Magikarp huh, going to be impossible the first some levels. Doing something with Weedle or Caterpie is better as they at least have moves to use :3

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF PC!!!


And now...

Update #2 on LeafGreen.

I have now beaten all the gyms and am saved in Victory Road. Koga beat me twice with Toxic+Minimize/Smokescreen hax, but I eventually beat him. The rest were easy with all my coverage moves.

I bought Ice Beam from the Game Corner and grabbed Thunder from the Power Plant before I faced Potter on Route 22, so those are the only moves changes from the last update (replaced Water Pulse and Shock Wave, both of which were used a bunch).

Here's another screenshot dump, starting with Erika.
