I just finished my solo Kecleon run in ruby. It was pretty fun and easy because Kecleon is very underrepresented in pokemon. The reason why Kecleon is at a very high level is because I had like 20 rarecandies at the end of Victory Road (thanks to pickup getting about 8 of them and just finding random ones around hoenn and hoarding them)

Just wanted to say.

I have completed a Solo Blastoise Run in Pokemon Red, Pokemon Crystal and Pokemon Ruby. Not doing the advanced GENS because I don't like them much to be honest. I will consider going for Ultimate with it later on perhaps.

Ultimate?: . . . Maybe, eventually. For now, let's stick with the one game.

I'd add pictures and type it up in journal form, but 1) I'd have to take the pic with my phone and I don't feel like it, and 2) I'm using my phone to type and it'd be a pain to type that much. xP

Update #1
•Started game, as a girl named Aqua
•Received Totodile from Prof. Elm and named him river
•Got Mysterious Egg and Pokédex, crushed rival and named him Terra.
•Told mom to save my $moniez, ran to Violet and defeated everything on my way there
•Sweeped Sprout Tower rather easily, and then beat Falkner and received Togepi Egg + Super Potion from mom
•Went through Union Cave, crushed everyone and got some phone numbers
•Beat Team Rocket, Bugsy, and Terra without so much as a scratch on River -- Togepi hatched, male named Talos
•Got Cut in Ilex forest, used Talos to catch Spearow, Slowpoke, and Rattata HM slaves, then boxed Talos
•Headed to Ilex forest. . . .


EDIT: o yeah, right . . .
Current Team:

Croconaw "River" Male, Lv25
-Ice Fang

Slowpoke "Sloth" Male, Lv8

The journey began
Spoiler:
I was a formless entity. I was not happy, but only because I could not feel happiness. I suppose a word for it would be "content." I was content.

However, strange things are happening to me.

The world went black. It's always dark in my world, so we do not have a word for "darkness" or "light." The darkness suddenly got darker, then burst into light. Again, I did not have words for these phenomena.

Colors. I had never seen them. What I now know is "gold" blinded me. A man stood before me. And a voice. "Welcome to the world of Pokémon!"

I have heard of Pokémon. Sometimes, my kind possess them. We like them. There are 26 of them that exist. I have never seen one.

"Are you a boy or a girl?"

"A girl," I replied. I did not know what that meant, but I liked the sound of it better.

I was asked my name. My name is (?), but it cannot be easily spoken, so I spelled it. The man did not seem surprised.

Unexpectedly, I found myself in a small room. I looked at myself for the first time. I have several appendages now, and they move at my command. I have visual adapters. I have sensory inputs. I must be some kind of computer, I reasoned.

But computers feel no pain, so that realization was proven untrue when I tried to move. No longer can I pass through surfaces. I was surprised.

On an extremely soft surface were casings made of flexible surfaces. They were obviously meant as armor for my weak body. I have not had a body before. I am not sure if I like it. I fitted the armor to myself, only to learn with horror that it offered little protection.

I soon learned to move with relative ease. Standing on my two long protrusions, I descended the variant surfaces, and after much difficulty ran into a person of interest. "(?)!" she exclaimed. "Professor Elm was looking for you."

and then things happened...
Spoiler:
I was to choose a Pokémon. I took the green one, because it looked a little scared, like me. I was given instructions to care for it by letting it walk beside me. Good. It was also bound to the downward surface, so it would be my guide. I was told to find a man named Mr. Pokémon, who lives north on route 30. I did not know what North nor Route 30 were, but I learn quickly, so I decided to find out for myself. Holding the green beast's leaf, I ventured onward.

Suddenly, an entity popped out at me. After screaming at the green beast to destroy it, I watched while my little green one fainted. I fainted as well, which surprised me. My life force must be tied somehow to the green one.

To shorten the story: I tripped over the running armor, met Mr. Pokémon, and was given an "egg." I liked the feeling of this "egg." Heading back to the lab, for I remembered the route, I met another solid entity, whose hair was a color I learned to be called "red."

I returned to the lab. I was being accused of theft, and by an idiot of a being. An excited sort, who was apparently my friend, defended me. I was impressed. I was likable.

I was given a set of "Pokéballs" by this friend. So, I could imprison these beasts! Hooray!

And later...
Spoiler:
I was stopped outside a Pokémon center by a mysterious figure. "Do you believe in destiny?" it asked.

"Destiny?"

"You don't want that Pokémon," it spoke. I was confused. I had already started to like Green One. "Take this." I was handed another egg, but this one was lighter in weight. "Walk with it, and raise what's inside. You will like it, I promise. Battle with only that Pokémon."

The figure turned away. "If you do exactly what I say," it said, "everything will become clear."

I patted Green One on the head as an apology and, holding the egg, started walking...

(Guys, my trainer ID is 47788. Cool, right?)

Ok, here's my update.

I have beet the first six gyms in crystal, with growlithe of course. They were all pretty easy except for Whitney, the third gym leader, it took me a few times to beat her. And i also had a bit of a problem at the fifth gym, I didn't have a strength slave to get trough the last bit of the gym so I had to get my tododile out of the pc and evolve so it could learn strength:

Now Growlithe is Lv42, holding Charcoal, and his moves are:
- Bite
- Take Down
- Ember
- Flame Wheel
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New update

I have completed the challenge. I beat the seventh johto gym leader, and Growlithe was on Lv50, it just learned Flamethrower. I gave it a fire stone and it evolved into Arcanine, where it learnt extremespeed. I then beat the final Johto gym leader, then easily beat the elite four, apart from the champion Lance who got me on low health. I then beat the Kanto Gym leaders and by the time I reached end of mt silver Arcanine was Lv81. I gave him the tm fire blast. Red gave me some trouble but I beat him in the end.

So now here is the stats for my favourite Pokemon:

Lv82 Arcanine

Holding: Charcoal

Moves:
- Bite
- Extremespeed
- Flamethrower
- Fire Blast
