Another update:
Vs Rival #2: Pretty easy, although Croconaw was a THKO rather than a OHKO like the others, so I had to watch out for water gun.
Vs Whitney: Clefairy was a OHKO, but Miltank was a 3HKO, but didn't do much.
Vs Rival #3: Magnemite was a pain to take down and thunder shock did more damage then I would've liked and like last battle Croconaw was a THKO, but went smoothly otherwise.
Vs Morty:No damage taken whatsoever. Badge won.
Currently Aero is level 29 with:
Wing Attack
AncientPower
Bite
Supersonic
And that is it... for now.

Pokemon of Choice: Sableye
Challenge: Single
Game: Sapphire
-----
Update
Hacked in Sableye, named him June Bug. Forgot to Screen Shot the capture.
So far everything has been really easy, seeing as trainers don't take typing into account, I rarely ever get hit. Struggled with Roxanne, lost to her once, but wasn't too bad. I've never played using the speed button before, and I feel like it makes the game much much easier. I'm also not really exploring much, more just whipping through the game. Can't decide if I like it or not. It obviously has the aspects of instant gratification, but I feel like it takes some of the personality and connection out of the game.


-----
Update 2
Been cruisin' through as usual. Got tripped up at Wattson once, but was able to take him out on the second try. Team Aqua has been real easy to beat, and Flannery basically took herself out by downing her Torkoal's special attack.

Wow, I honestly thought that I would never beat the devil known as Jasmine, but I did it by battling random trainers and using rare candies to gain exp and money for Fire Blast. Eventually I got my money and all is well now, cause Fire Blast was a OHKO on everything despite Aerodactyl's less than ideal Special Attack, and Chuck, well, the type matchup should explain it all. Tomorrow I shall make up lost ground, or at least some of it.

Oh, and I should mention: Aero the Aerodactyl is level 44 with:
Wing Attack
Ancient Power
Fire Blast
Fly(yes, I taught him fly but will delete it off with the move deleter)

And, I found out Aero's Hidden Power is Electric, so it is not worth the move slot in my opinion.

I completed Cacturne solo run =) It wasn't that hard at all - the only one of the elite 4 members that was giving me problems was Agatha - yes Agatha with her Arbok and Golbat that were getting crits everywhere and poisoning me pretty much every second turn x.x The rival was easy - and I thought that Lance would be giving me problems but he was actually easy to beat :o As for horsea/Seadra solo run - I am still leveling it up at the moment - I am kinda stuck at misty

Final team:


Jamie
Lvl 86, serious nature, Ability: Sand Veil
Mega Punch (Really helpful move on any pokemon that has bad moveset)
Pin Missile (Got a lot of crits using it so that's why I left it in the moveset)
Needle Arm (Decided to leave it instead of switching it out for mega drain)
Faint Attack (Useful against Gengars in elite 4 and super useful for cleaning up Lavender Tower)

I am planning on doing two more:
Riolu/Lucario on Diamond and Poochyena/Mightyena while I am still working on Horsea/Seadra

So:
Username: AoTora
Pokemon used: Poochyena/Mightyena (Hoping that this one is a bit more challenging than cacturne was)
Game: FireRed

Pokemon used: Riolu/Lucario
Game: Diamond - my favourite game for ds since I found out how to configure speed up button on DesMume because the game was always awfully slow for me lol

OK, maybe I didn't get as far as I thought, but whatever...
Pryce: OHKOed everything
Clair: Same as Pryce except Kingdra took two hits to kill, and Kingdra's Surf actually almost killed Aero, but Aero survived(somehow) and KOed Kingdra.
And everyone else was shamefully easy, the Elite Four surprisingly especially. The only two Pokemon in the Elite Four that needed to be THKOed were Slowbro and Umbreon, but they didn't damage me back. Slowbro used Curse while Umbreon Sand-Attacked Aero(and Aero never missed an attack lol). I also got three Kanto gym badges(Earthquake is rather helpful ). This, like I thought, is easier then Blue.
Aero the Aerodactyl is Level 69 with:
Wing Attack
Ancient Power
Fire Blast
Earthquake
And that is all for now.

I decided to start this challenge, taking Paradin the Nidoking! I plan on using him throughout the regions, but I am starting with Pokemon Red Advanced (a hack of Red; no differences outside of different Pokemon used by trainers). Paradin is now a level 30 Nidorino, and we just beat the rival Jade in Cerulean! Currently working on getting a Mew for an HM slave

When I first caught Nidoran:

A level 11 Pinsir from a trainer in Viridian Forest!

Brock had a level 15 Onix and this level 33 Vulpix; they were tough, but we beat 'em!
Screen Shot 2013-11-03 at 2.20.53 PM.png

EDIT:

So . . . I kinda beat the game today, as it only took me a couple of hours (I played at 5x speed). It got to a point where I was clearly over-leveled and thus skipped many areas, so unfortunately none of the future Gym Leaders were too challenging.

However, the Elite Four and Champion did not disappoint! I had trouble with them, mostly due to my severe lack of PP on Paradin. But we remedied that with X Accuracy and X Special to boost Paradin's stats and thus conserve PP. Here is a video if anyone cares to watch my battle against the Elite Four and the Champion (about 9 minutes long):

Sorry but I can't add this to the OP just yet because there are things I need to know first. Like what challenge are you doing, single or ultimate. If an ultimate then what games are you play and such. I have no problem adding you to the OP once you clear this up.

This is why there is a sign-up form in the OP because it makes it easier for me to update when people actually use it.

Here's the sign-up form along with an example on how to use it for those that don't check out the OP before signing up.

I actually decided to go ahead and start early
  • Started the game
  • Picked Totodile as a future slave
  • Got the egg from Mr. Pokemon
  • Beat my rival, who I later named S-Dogg...for some weird reason
  • Had to go through the first gym without my Mareep since it's first avalible on a route after the first gym
  • Went and caught Amphy the Mareep. I was hoping for a male, but I got a female one. It's not a big deal, though. Mareep is Mareep
  • Went back and beat any trainers I missed, including all of Sprout Tower
  • Amphy already evolved, and I'm not at Union Cave yet
  • Luckily got through Union Cave and reached Azalea Town
  • Took out Team Rocket in the Slowpoke Well
  • Decimated Azalea Gym
  • Struggled a bit against S-Dogg, but still won
  • Got through Ilex Forest and reached Goldenrod
  • Got myself TMs for Thunderpunch and Fire Punch for Amphy for some more type coverage
  • Went and got the Quick Claw from National Park, then owned all the trainers there
  • I beat Whitney the devil on the first try. GGs skill, GGs
  • Murdered a tree which got Amphy to level 30, and finally to the ultimate glory of the awesome Ampharos. It would be able to have awesome hair, but this isn't Gen 6. It's Gen 2. One day, though. I shall bring the awesome hair of Mega Ampharos!
  • Anyway, onto Ecruteak City where I destroyed the Kimono Girls and Morty's gym. Skipped Burned Tower for now, but I'll come back for it when I go to deal with Chuck and Jasmine.
  • Instead of going towards Olivine, I headed to Mahogany Town and went to the Lake of Rage to own the Gyarados and help Lance deal with Team Rocket.
  • Brought the smackdown on the Rocket Hideout.
  • Beat Pryce and headed back to Ecruteak to murder all the small fries.
  • Beat S-Dogg again
  • Destroyed trainers left and right up until Cianwood City
  • Decimated Cianwood Gym
  • Laid waste to Jasmine's Steel types
  • Took care of the Radio Tower business
  • Got the Radio Card
  • Caught a Goldeen as a Waterfall slave
  • Got through the Ice Path
  • Owned Clair, but she got all mad because she lost
  • Took the Dragon Master's Challenge
  • Got the Master Ball and headed to Kanto
  • Destroyed the path to Victory Road, and owned S-Dogg one last time before the Elite Four
  • Took down Will, Koga, Bruno, and Karen of the Elite Four
  • Last but not least, the showdown with Lance.


And that concludes the Johto half of my Amphy solo


Team Sparker


Amphy (Ampharos) Lv. 64 F @ Quick Claw
Moves: Headbutt, Fire Punch, Thunderpunch, Thunder

Hey sorry but for an ultimate challenge you need to complete the challenge in the 5 regions of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova, not just every game for the same region. You would also have to include a Kalos game if you would like to be a complete champion.

Right now you have your sign-up saying that you're doing 3 single challenges, not an ultimate.

So if you can respond to this and say whether are not you're doing 3 singles or are going to change your sign-up to an ultimate that would be awesome I'll add you to the OP as soon as you clarify

Omastar Solo - FireRed

Spoiler:
  • Started the game

  • Went through a slow battle with my rival and won
  • Constrict is the worst move for an Omanyte this early on
  • Lost to a Bug Catcher because of Constrict's horrible power and poison
  • Lost to the same Bug Catcher again >________>
  • Honestly, I have to train, so this is gonna be a short update

Team Rorak


Shell (Omanyte) M Lv. 8 @ Nothing
Nature: Mild
Ability: Shell Armor
Moves: Constrict, Withdraw


Armaldo Solo - Emerald

Spoiler:
  • Started the game
  • Did all the beginning stuff
  • Got my Anorith starter and owned a Zigzagoon
  • Went and nicknamed it Creep Eyes, because of those weird eyes
  • Went and owned May
  • Got my Pokedex and Poke Balls
  • Effect Spore >_____>
  • Made it to Petalburg City
  • "Helped" Wally catch a Pokemon
  • Had an epic battle with a guy's Seedot
  • Destroyed the Team Aqua guy in Petalburg Woods
  • Made my way to Rustboro. Time to get some massive training done.

Team Rocky

Creep Eyes (Anorith) F Lv. 9 @ Nothing
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Battle Armor
Moves: Scratch, Harden


A third solo that I want to get out of my way for my Johto list

Spoiler:
And now, I believe it's time to give myself a death wish with this next one just to get it out of the way.

Username: KoboraX
Pokemon of Choice: Ledian
Challenge: Single
Game(s): Silver

Without further delay, prepare for constant complaining about terrible stats and bad movepools
  • Let's just start this one and get it done so I have it finished on my Johto list
  • As per usual, Totodile shall be my multi purpose HM slave
  • Went through the beginning game business, then went and caught Superbug the Ledyba.
  • Trained Superbug up to Lv. 8 on Route 29. His attack is terrible, and with only Tackle at my disposal until I can get Headbutt, I'm going to be in for one hell of a time. I may actually need to use Totodile for Azalea Town because of the rival battle since I won't get any non Normal type attacks that Ledyba/Ledian can learn until Goldenrod
  • Battled my way through to Violet City with just Supersonic and Tackle spamming
  • Sprout Tower brought forth the reminder to me that Supersonic is a terrible move. I honestly missed 7-8 times in a row wit Supersonic, but so far, it's the only thing helping deal out damage because of Ledyba's bad attack stat.
  • Beat Falkner on the first try mostly due to wasting Potions and landing the confusion on his Pidgeotto
  • Survived Union Cave and managed to get Superbug evolved and get Swift on him. Swift is actually pretty decent in power compared to Tackle and Comet Punch.
  • Took care of Team Rocket and took on the gym, but after healing up at the Pokemon Center, I accidently activated the rival battle. Still won, though.
  • Took down Bugsy pretty easily. Then again, he's easy in this game. He's annoying in HG/SS
  • Got HM01 and made my way through Ilex Forest
  • Finally reached Goldenrod and got some good moves for Superbug
  • Ice Punch feels so broken for me. Only having it for 20 minutes or less, I've landed at least five freezes, including one on Whitney's Miltank
  • Got the Squirtbottle and owned Sudowoodo
  • Brought down the Nuzlocke killers (in HG/SS), the Kimono Girls, and got HM03
  • Beat Morty...surprisingly easily. Had to waste a couple of items to heal sleep because of Haunter and Gengar, but I still won
  • Dealt with a lot of problem with paralysis on the way to Olivine
  • Got through the lighthouse, but it turns out I didn’t have anything that could learn Strength
  • Had to head towards Lake of Rage, but I never taught Totodile Surf, so I had to go and teach that real quick before reaching Mahogany Town
  • Went and caught a Girafirig as a Strength slave

Doing my own solo run here.

Username: GucciMeme
Pokemon of choice: Heracross (a tribute to Werster, one of my favorite Pokemon speedrunners)
Game of Choice: Crystal (also his favorite, but unintended.)
HM Slaves: Totodile, Togepi, Poliswag Pidgey, Sentret.

Current Progress:

Just laid the smack down on Faulkner despite the 4x weakness to Flying.
Moved through Union Cave with relative ease, Horn Attack handles those Geodudes!
Finished Slowpoke Well one-hitting the Zubats and what not.
Defeated Bugsy and his Scyther. The resistance really helped.

Defeated Silver at Azalea, one of the hardest fights in the game at that point. His Gastly was annoying as the only move I had that could touch him is Fury Cutter, which it resists. Had to use plenty of items there as its Hypnosis/Lick/Confuse/ and ParaFlinch strategy was frustrating. I was paralyzed but handled Bayleef with some STAB Fury Cutter. On to Azalea Forest where I'll teach Beetle Headbutt.

Sorry but you can't use Mew as your HM slave as that would break the rule of no hacking. You can only use pokemon available in the game without hacking, even if it's just for your HM slave.

Pokemon of Choice:I'll choose exeggcute -> exeggutor ooo and for an hm slave I'll use krabby. (I know you said that you can hack your 1st char in if it isn't available before the 1st gym but can you also hack in an hm slave if you don't have a fishing rod yet?)
