I seem to be really bad at keeping updates on my solo runs, as well as documenting them, but I guess you will have to deal once again. I came back to playing after a bunch of my friends started playing. But to get down to business, I finished up a Maganium solo run. Yep all the way to Red beaten and not really dead, but done.

I'll try this in my spare time. Might go for ultimate, but not right now.

Game: Platinum
Pokémon: Eevee (currently trying to get my game to work on the emulator so I can get an egg, gonna get Flail and Endure as egg moves)

May not post updates very regularly, but I'll try to

Edit: After a while of trying to get things to work, I finally got my egg, I got pretty lucky in that the first female I got was also shiny (cos I totally didn't influence that at all ). Transferred the egg into my new save file and I was ready to go. Hatched it, and nicknamed my new Eevee "Eon" (I imagine a few people will recognize that as Eevee's beta name). She is level 1 (obviously, due to the egg changes in gen IV) so we are gonna need to do some training before she is ready to fight, luckily I thought ahead and taught her Flail and Endure as egg moves!. In case anyone was wondering, I checked her hidden power, and it is ice type. I intend to evolve her into either Umbreon or Espeon, and will leave it up to fate to decide which (though I'd prefer Umbreon, its always been my favourite Eeveelution).



Edit 2: The prof seems to be getting confused in his old age, not only does he think he gave me an Eevee (he gave me Piplup, which seems to have disappeared) he also thinks it has evolved! Eevee doesn't even have a pre-evolved form! But anyway, he gave me the TM for Return, and so I replaced Helping Hand (pretty useless with one Pokémon). Eon is now at Level 5, and we are heading back home to let Mom know that Prof. Rowan has asked us to help him complete the Pokédex, and thus our journey begins.

Edit 3:

This might be rather long, I just started typing it in notepad as I was playing, I haven't even checked how long it is...I dread to think

Spoiler:
We rushed home as quickly as we could, jumping over ledges to avoid battles, which would slow us down. When we got home, Mom let us rest and we told her about Prof. Rowan. She gave us a Journal and sent us off on our journey. But as we were about to leave the house, Samm's Mom came in looking for him, he hadn't told her where he was going! She was worried, and gave me a parcel for him. She told us that Samm would probably be in Jubilife City, so we decided to head there next. On the way back to Sandgem Town, we got attacked by a couple of Bidoof and a Starly, but Eon quickly took care of them with Return. In Sandgem we healed up at the Pokémon Center to replenish PP, and then headed south to Route 219. We couldn't really progress here, as neither of us could swim, so we grabbed an antidote that was on the ground and headed north. When we arrived in Route 202, we were stopped by Dawn, the Professor's assistant. She took us into the long grass and showed us how to catch a Pokémon. She gave us five Pokéballs, which will probably come in handy later. She then headed off to Jubilife City, and we decided to follow her, after all, thats where we were headed anyway. We got stopped by a couple trainers who challenged us to battles, but Eon took care of them easily with Return, and grew to level 6. After a quick battle with a wild Bidoof, we got challenged by another trainer, and I was glad I had just healed Eon with a Potion I got given by a Pokémart clerk on route 201. He had a Burmy, which we hadn't seen before. A couple of Returns later, Eon defeated it, and grew to level 7. A youngster informed us that some Pokémon only appear in the day, and some at night. We got attacked by another Bidoof, which was quickly taken care of, and found a potion on the ground. We finally arrived in Jubilife City and were greeted by Dawn, I guess she had seen us following her and waited. She asked us if we'd been catching Pokémon, and seemed disappointed when we hadn't. For now Eon and I are fine by ourselves though. She told us to go to the Pokémon Trainer's School to learn a bit about Pokémon, and we decided that it would be a good idea, so followed her. Dawn stopped when she saw an unusual man, and we walked up to him. He announced that he was a member of the International Police, though I'd never heard of them before. He told us his codename was Looker, and he asked us if the phrase "don't be a thief!" seemed familiar. We hadn't heard it before, so answered no. He didn't seem to understand this, and assumed our Mom had told us it, but we had forgotten it. He told us it was wrong to steal things, which we knew anyway. However he informed us that there were people who didn't heed those words, and that there were criminals in Sinnoh stealing the Pokémon of others. Naturally we were horrified, how could anyone be so horrible! After letting us know he was investigating these criminals, he gave Dawn and I devices called "Vs. Recorder". Apparently it is for recording Pokémon battles. He told us that if we saw him again, we shouldn't talk to him, then changed his mind and said we MUST talk to him. Of course we were quite confused, but he promptly explained that we should inform him of any bad guys, and that he was of course not lonely, and that isn't why he wanted us to talk to him. He then ran off and Dawn showed us where the Trainer School was. Apparently she had seen Samm go in, and he was probably still in there studying. That was even more reason to go, we could deliver his parcel. We told her we'd check it out. She said goodbye and headed back to Sandgem Town. Samm was of course still in the Trainer School, writing down everything on the blackboard. We saw an X Attack on the floor, so picked it up. We spoke to Samm and gave him his parcel. Inside were two Town Maps, he kept one and gave the other to me. He told us he was gonna head off to Oreburgh City next. We weren't sure where that was, so decided to check it on our new Town Map. It was quite close, and had a Pokémon Gym, so it would be perfect for some training! Samm ran off (as usual) and we decided to fight a couple of trainers in the School. The first had a Starly, and managed to get in a Quick Attack before Eon KOd it with Return. The second had a Bidoof, which was taken down with Return before it even damaged Eon. Eon grew to level 8 and wanted to learn Sand Attack, but I was happy with her current moves for now, so we decided against learning it. After beating both the trainers, they gave us a Potion, claiming we'd be better at using it than them. We were heading towards Oreburgh City when we were stopped by a man who insulted us for not having something called a Pokétch. He then explained that it was short for Pokémon Watch, and that it was something he had invented. He said that he was currently running a promotional campaign, and that if we could find three clowns and answer their questions, he would give us a free Pokétch. It seemed like a good deal, so we searched for the clowns and found them easily. Their questions were relatively simple, and when we told them the right answer, they told us some trivia and gave us a Pokétch Coupon. We needed all 3 to get the Pokétch, so answered all 3 questions. When we had the necessary coupons, we went back to the man, who gave us a Pokétch as promised. Then we headed off to Route 203, which was on the way to Oreburgh City. Samm stopped us, and I wished we'd gone to a Pokémon Center first, but Eon was raring to go, so we accepted Samm's request for a quick battle. His first Pokémon was a Starly, level 7, just one level below Eon. We knew we could take it on though, so Eon went straight in with a Return, but Starly was quicker, and hit Eon with a quick attack. Eon wasn't bothered, and carried on with her attack, getting a critical hit! Starly was pretty low on HP now, so Eon used a Tackle. Starly was KOd, and Samm sent out his Turtwig. This was level 9, a level above Eon. If she was scared by this, she didn't show it. She went right in with a return, and was surprised by Turtwig's high defence, which only got higher when it used Withdraw. Eon used another Return, and got Turtwig down to half HP. She got hit with a Tackle, but didn't take much damage. She flew back with another Return, her adrenaline pumping, and scored a critical hit! This KOd Turtwig, and Eon grew to level 9. Samm was really upset that he lost, and vowed never to lose to us again. He said he was going to be the worlds toughest trainer, and Eon burst out laughing. Surprised by this, Samm said he was going to Oreburgh Gym, and would beat it to prove how strong he was. He ran off without even healing his Pokémon! Eon and I headed back to the Pokémon Center to heal up. Our battle with Samm made me realize that Eon needed to train if we wanted to beat that Gym. However Eon didn't seem worried at all, in fact she was raring to challenge the Gym right there and then! I managed to convince her to train, and we headed back to Route 203. There were a few trainers there, so we decided to challenge them to battles. The first was a Youngster who was hiding out the way. He had two Pokémon, a Kricketot and a Zubat. We had never seen either of them before, so knew this would be an interesting battle! Both were taken down with a single Return, so it wasn't as interesting as we hoped, but Eon didn't care, she was loving how easily she took them down. We picked up a Pokéball off the ground and headed to the next trainer. It was another Youngster, this one had a Shinx, another new Pokémon. Eon flew in with a Return and was hit with Leer. A quick Tackle and this battle was over. Eon grew to level 10, and was pleased with how quickly she was levelling up. The next trainer was also a Youngster, this one was training for the Oreburgh Gym, just like us. He had a Machop, another Pokémon we hadn't seen before. It looked pretty strong, but was two levels below Eon, so she was even more confident than usual. A Return took it down to half HP, and it used Low Kick. I then realized our mistake, this was a Fighting Type, and Eon was weak to Fighting Type moves! Luckily she didn't take too much damage, and was still raring to fight. Another Return and it was over. I decided it would be best to head back to the Pokémon Center, just in case. Eon of course didn't want to go, she thought she was fine as she was. I convinced her to go, and we were attacked by a Starly on the way. It was only level 4, so it was a quick battle. We got back to the Pokémon Center and Eon was fully healed. I could tell she was glad, but she was trying not to show it. Back on Route 203 we were attacked by a wild Shinx, remembering how easy they were to defeat, Eon used a Return and was shocked when it survived with 1 HP. I decided this might be a good time to catch a Pokémon for HMs, so checked it on my Bulbapedia...I mean Pokédex. It could only learn Strength (oddly, as it is known as the Flash Pokémon, yet cannot learn Flash), so we decided to pass on it for now. Eon took it down with a Tackle. We spotted a Lass searching for Pokémon and challenged her to a battle. She had 4 Pokémon. Her first, a Bidoof, was taken down with a single return. Her second was a Budew, a kind we hadn't seen before, it too was taken down with a single Return. Eon grew to level 11 in time for her third Pokémon, a Starly. This was also taken down with a single return, and we moved on to her final Pokémon, an Abra. This of course also only took a single Return. The last trainer on the route was another Lass. This one said she had gotten the badge from Oreburgh Gym, so we were keen to challenge her. She had one Pokémon, a Psyduck. This was another Pokémon we hadn't seen before. Eon started with a Return and took it down to really low HP, so went for a Tackle to finish it off. Another battle down, and route 203 clear of trainers. There was only one way to go from here, into a cave. Eon was still in good health, so we decided to head in straight away. As soon as we got in the cave, a man stopped us and gave us HM06 Rock Smash. There were also a couple trainers in there. The first had two Pokémon. His first, a Starly, was taken down in a single Return. His second, a Shinx, quickly followed suit. Eon grew to level 12. The second had only one Pokémon, a Bidoof. It managed to survive Eon's Return, so she attacked it with a Tackle and brought it down. When we had defeated both trainers we were right by the exit, so quickly headed out...Right outside was Oreburgh City! We were stopped by a Youngster who took us straight to the Gym...where Samm was waiting outside. I went over to him and he said that the Gym Leader was tough, and trailed off after contemplating how the Gym Leader compared to his Dad. He told me the Leader had gone off to the coal mine, so if we wanted to challenge him, we'd have to go find him. But I was getting tired, so we decided to head to the Pokémon Center and rest for a couple hours. Later on we'll be finding the Leader and challenging him to a battle!


Forgive me if I went on a bit there haha...anyways, Eon and I will be challenging the Gym later, I need a break from battling and my 3DS needs charging! Hopefully you all like the personality I've given Eon, I realized after I'd started writing her personality that she had the Sassy nature, so it's pretty fitting! I'm intently watching Sinnoh get darker as I type this, will be training Eon a lot later, I want her to Evolve into an Umbreon! I've also chosen my HM Slaves, it took me a lot of research, and I realized i could get all 8 HMs on a Bibarel and a Tropius, but you don't get Tropius till quite late in the game, so I'm going for: Bibarel - Cut, Surf, Strength, Rock Smash, Bibarel - Rock Climb, Waterfall, Starly - Fly, Defog

Quick update from notes I scribbled down after I realized I hadn't come back to Platinum last night and did some training:

Spoiler:
Eon and I were shocked to see sunlight through the Pokémon Center window. Clearly we had fallen asleep! We had intended to do a full training schedule last night, and Eon seemed pretty disappointed that we had missed it. We rushed to Route 207, determined to make up for lost time. There were plenty of Pokémon to see here, most of which Eon took down with ease. A wild Ponyta managed to get in a hit before it got KOd, but Eon didn't mind, she took it down with a single Return anyway, and grew to level 13. We decided to head back to Oreburgh City and talk to everyone there, someone may have something that would come in handy for the Gym Leader. A Hiker informed me that the Gym Leader was a young man called Roark, and that he ran the mine. Another trainer told me Roark used Rock-Type Pokémon. I naturally got worried by this, Rock-Types had high defence, and were resistant to Eon's attacks! Eon didn't share my worry though, she would have battled him right then if he was in his Gym. One guy wanted to trade an Abra for my Machop, but I didn't have one, so I told him I'd pass for now. Everyone seemed really nice, but didn't have any interesting information for me (though one remarked at Eon's fur colour, he had never seen a silver Eevee before). A few people mentioned that the mine would be a good place to train, so we decided to head there next. On the way we decided to do some exploring. We found a Dire Hit and something called a Yellow Shard. Then we headed into the mine. The first thing we noticed was how big it was, the second was that it was teeming with Geodude (we got attacked by one as soon as we walked through the door!). These Pokémon were really annoying, as they had high defence which they made even higher with Defence Curl. Eon took most of them down with two Returns anyway. A Miner told us that some of the other Miners may challenge us to battles. We decided to try and find these Miners, but not yet. We wrote in our Journal (You're reading it!), and had a rest in a nearby house. Training could wait a little bit.


Not a particularly long update, but there will be another one later.

Edit: I've decided that when I buy Pokémon Black later (yeah, I'm still stuck in Gen IV) I'm gonna go through that with just Eon too (luckily I have a copy of her Egg!)

Well I started Sapphire with Weedle. I would've chosen Emerald, but then I would've had to deal with trade restrictions, which is the main reason it took me this long to start. Here's how it went.

-Started my adventure, naming myself Kirby as usual.
-Chose Torchic as my starter, and got through the boring starting stuff.
-Once I could trade, I traded over a Weedle egg from LeafGreen (the parent of that egg is the Weedle I used for the first game of this challenge).
-Hatched it, and made my way to Rustboro.
-Beat every trainer I can face atm, except for a double battle and the first gym leader.
-Thats pretty much where I am now, Weedle is level 15 I think. I have pictures of his level 5 stats, but I'm posting from my 3DS atm. Since the first leader is both strong and supereffective against me (again) I'll need to grind to beat this. Once Weedle is sufficiently overleveled, I probably won't have to grind for a while, if at all. At least I can EV train, since Lotad gives out Sdef while Nincada gives out Def.

Erika was really annoying cause of the status problems but otherwise it was fairly easy mostly because im overleveled.

Final Update (#5) on Black!
  • Well, the postgame was real fast and easy since I only had one Pokemon, and Fireheart could handle the high levels no problem.
  • Anyway, I ended up getting him to L97 before taking on Morimoto and Cynthia, and I also taught Fireheart Wild Charge in place of Crunch.
  • Morimoto was real easy, he doesn't have any real threats to Fire heart.
  • Cynthia took several tries, however, because of Garchomp. I ended up having to use an X Attack on Fireheart for a safe win against Cynthia.
  • Now it was time for the Elite Four again, so I taught Fireheart Fire Blast.
  • Most of the Elite Four didn't give Fireheart any trouble aside from Marshall (damn Sawk with Sturdy and a crit Stone Edge), Fireheart was just too overpowering. He did have a bit of recoil damage due to Wild Charge, especially against Shauntal and Grimsley.
  • Alder was easy as well, although I did lose once to Volcarona, who crit with a +1 Hyper Beam.
  • Here's the video and play-by-play of the win. I chuckled at the Hyper Beam miss.

This is my first challenge and the idea of sweeping an entire game with only one pokemon sounds awesome. I'm gonna run torchic because he was my favorite and first to ever reach lvl 100. It's cool if i use the GBA Hack for gold right?
I will probably go Ruby-> FireRed-> Gold Hack-> Pearl-> White
