CHALLENGE COMPLETE.

Update:

Spoiler:

*I defeat Giovanni, and head into Victory Road.
*I make it through Victory Road.
*I defeat the Elite Four and the Champion, challenge complete! 8D





Final Team:



Psycho (Golduck) Lv. 56
Surf, Ice Beam, Confusion, Disable
Thoughts: Psycho was a Special powerhouse. With Ice Beam and Surf, he was practically unstoppable. Not even most electric types could slow him down. He'd take the hit, then retaliate with a Surf, or maybe a Disable. Whatever it was, Psycho did not faint often at all.


Shrewd (Sandslash) Lv. 56
Slash, Rock Slide, Earthquake, Swift
Thoughts: Slash always got the Critical Hit, which usually meant a OHKO. I never knew that Sandslash could be such a beast! It isn't as fragile as I used to think it was, either; my Shrewd survived some Surfs from the opposing team pretty easily. With such powerful moves, every enemy went down almost instantly.


Miles (Mr. Mime) Lv. 57
Psychic, Toxic, Substitute, Thunderbolt
Thoughts: Psychic destroyed everything. (Which was to be expected, this was the first generation, after all) I barely even used Toxic, and I only used Substitute once. I didn't need either; Psychic and Thunderbolt took care of everything. Miles could also take a few hits, which was good.

Update 11:

So, I decided to "train for Red" by beating the Elite Four again. Considering Lance's Pokemon were all about 10 levels above me now, I figured it would be a pretty good training experience. So in I headed, and came up against Will first.

I led with Mismagius, expecting Xatu to come out first, but was confronted instead with Bronzong. No worries, I thought, and started to set up with Mismagius' Charge Beam. Eventually her Sp.Atk was through the roof so she Shadow Balled Bronzong into submission, and then did the same to Jynx and Grumpig - both OHKOs.

Will followed Grumpig with Xatu, and Mismagius used Shadow Ball again, expecting another easy OHKO - but alas, Xatu was quicker (who knew!?) and Mismagius went down to the bird's own Shadow Ball. I chucked in Omastar who killed the bird with AncientPower. Pinsir then took care of Gardevoir and Slowbro with X-Scissor.

Next up was Koga. I led with Toxicroak - I'm not really sure why - and Koga led with Skunktank, who promptly used Dig. I used the free turn to switch in Dragonite, who Dragon Rushed the skunk to death, suffering heavily from Aftermath in the process (Skunktank also got in a Sucker Punch). Pinsir then took care of Venomoth and Crobat (with Girafarig's help), and Girafarig ruined Koga's own Toxicroak and Swalot, after a long Amnesia-fuelled Yawn-fest.

Last up was Muk, who actually doesn't know any offensive moves. While Girafarig tried to Psychic the blob to death, Muk set up with Minimize (ARGH) and Toxic. Girafarig had to switch out, and I set up Nasty Plot on Toxicroak, hoping Sludge Bomb would hit and do some damage. The fight basically developed into a boring snooze-fest whereby Muk would repeatedly Swagger and Screech Toxicroak (a surprisingly powerful tactic), so I'd heal Toxicroak, and wait for an opportunity to Sludge Bomb Muk into submission. EVENTUALLY it worked, and I moved on, thankful to be past Koga and his annoying stalling tactics.

Bruno didn't prove as much of a problem. His Hitmontop still didn't know any moves that could hit Mismagius - what an oaf - so she took the opportunity to set up some Charge Beams, just like first time round. Unfortunately she actually killed Hitmontop before getting enough Charges in, so her Shadow Ball wasn't going to be enough to take out Hariyama. Instead I used Confuse Ray - mistake. Hariyama beat confusion and OHKOd Mismagius with Payback. Ouchies.

In came Toxicroak, who finished Hariyama off with no trouble. Lucario came afterwards and took a Brick Break before Iron Tailing Toxicroak into submission. I chucked in Dragonite to finish Lucario off with Waterfall. Next up was Machamp, who used Stone Edge on Dragonite while my dragon was Flying - I hate No Guard. It's such a cheap ability, especially on a Pokemon as strong as Machamp. Anyways Girafarig was the hero and took down Machamp, despite a painful hit from DynamicPunch. Pinsir then fell to Hitmonlee's annoying Blaze Kick (I do love that move on my Blaziken though ), leaving my Revived Dragonite to do the dirty work and finish everyone off.

Thankfully, Karen was a breeze. Toxicroak destroyed Weavile with a Brick Break, Omastar OHKOd Honchkrow with Ice Beam, Dragonite wrecked Houndoom with Waterfall while the demon dog tried to set up with Nasty Plot - and who can blame him after it was so effective first time round. Dragonite nailed Spiritomb with one Dragon Rush, Pinsir nailed Absol with one X-Scissor and Toxicroak returned to take down Umbreon with a few Brick Breaks and Poison Jabs. Umbreon only used Curse, except for one ineffective Sucker Punch. Only Toxicroak and Omastar took damage in that fight!

Lance was the final hurdle, and he was going to be tough, with his Pokemon probably 8 or so levels on average higher than Karen's - and therefore about 10-12 levels higher than mine, on average. I led with Omastar, who took a Dragon Claw from Salamence and Ice Beamed him to death.

Now I had to be clever, because Garchomp was up next. His Earthquake would OHKO all of my Pokes except maybe Pinsir (and Mismagius and Dragonite), while Outrage would kill all the rest in one except Omastar, who only had half health after the fight against Salamence. So I needed to bait Garchomp into using Outrage rather than Earthquake, and hope it wouldn't OHKO Omastar. Otherwise my whole team would go down.

So I sacrificed Dragonite to Garchomp, who duly used Outrage while I Full Restored Omastar. Dragonite went down, and Omastar jumped back in, surviving the Outrage and Ice Beaming the dragon for the win. Gyarados was next, and he went down thankfully to Mismagius' Charge Beams - although it was a close call when Gyarados beat confusion and nearly OHKOd Mismagius with Waterfall. Next up was Charizard, who proved no problem given that Omastar was fully healed and used AncientPower for an OHKO.

Dragonite was next. The level 75 beast. I really wasn't sure how to deal with this guy, seeing as I thought he'd easily OHKO my entire team - but Lance gave me a way to kill it by using Draco Meteor repeatedly, harshly lowering his Sp.Atk and completely gutting the dragon's attack power. All Dragonite's attacks are Special attacks, so he'd just completely ruined any chance his Dragonite had to win the match. I healed up my own Dragonite (still fainted after Garchomp) and sent him in, Dragon Dancing three times and easily soaking up Dragonite's feeble -6 Fire Blasts (they did about 9HP of damage, haha). Eventually I put Lance out of his misery and Dragon Rushed both Dragonite and Altaria, winning easily in the end.

I'd done it! I still need to put on a good 10-15 levels before I can realistically beat Red, though...

The Team:
Spoiler:

Toxicroak, Male, Relaxed, Lv.59
Poison Jab, Brick Break, Sludge Bomb, Nasty Plot
Impressions: A decent showing from a good all-round Pokemon. I'm glad I've kept him as a mixed attacker, because otherwise Karen's Umbreon would have proved awkward after all those Curses raised its Sp.Def. I'm not sure why he's still the lowest level of all my Pokes - he took some pretty big scalps in that E4 run.

Omastar, Male, Mild, Lv.62
AncientPower, Mud Shot, Ice Beam, Surf
Impressions: Again, as expected, my E4 MVP. Without him I'd never have beaten Lance, and his performance before that was stellar when called upon as well.

Mismagius, Female, Docile, Lv.60
Confuse Ray, Charge Beam, Shadow Ball, Dark Pulse
Impressions: Her IVs aren't very good, I've discovered. Despite her awesome Sp.Atk Base Stat, her actual Sp.Atk is only just better than Toxicroak's, and he's got an even better Atk stat to rely on too. I'm not sure what's happened, but my amazing Mismagius has faded quite a bit. She actually needs to set up using Charge Beam before she can start OHKOing at will, and she rarely gets the opportunity given that she can't take a hit at all. How very sad. Still, she performed very well against Will and okay against Bruno, so I shouldn't really complain, and I'm eternally grateful to her for always being on hand when those troublesome Gyarados appear.

Girafarig, Female, Sassy, Lv. 60
Zen Headbutt, Psychic, Crunch, Strength
Impressions: Well done Girafarig - despite having the worst BST of all my Pokes, she really pulled through in this E4 run, taking the valuable scalps of Bruno's Machamp as well as half Koga's team.

Dragonite, Male, Adamant, Lv.61
Dragon Dance, Dragon Rush, Waterfall, Fly
Impressions: Awesome as ever. I felt bad sacrificing him to Lance's Garchomp, but the circumstances had to be right to unleash him on the battle - as they were after Lance neutered his own Dragonite with repeated Draco Meteors. A brilliant Pokemon to fall back on when the going gets tough, notably against Bruno's final couple of Pokes.

Pinsir, Male, Quiet, Lv.60
X-Scissor, Swords Dance, Rock Slide, Brick Break
Impressions: Another stellar performance in the E4 to continue Pinsir's renaissance. He was invaluable against Karen, taking down Absol without losing a single HP. I was glad he was around when I took on Koga as well - Rock Slide proved an amazingly reliable way to take down Venomoth, despite the moth's Double Teams.

Update 1: My update of this challenge.

I start my game with Brendan (Jay) Torchic is my partner. I save Birch from that Poochyena again...again... again. Etc. I travel through Odale town to fight May. I won by accident >.<. We went back down to the Birch’s lab and she gave me 5 Pokeballs. (Woot! Free Crap! ^. ^) I walk back to Odale town, then onto route 102 to catch Seedot.(Yet to be nicknamed) I used Seedot in battle, and lost. I did it again... and lost. Then I remembered... Wingull. I caught a Wingull then went into battle... And lost. I needed a new Pokémon. So I caught my HM slave Zigzagoon. Zigzagoon was there for support. I decided to do the good ol’ switcheroo with Seedot and Wingull. It worked. (Finally -.-) I then did the events in Petalburg City. I ventured onto Route 104 and Battled the trainers there picked up two Oran berries and went into Rustburo Woods. Team Magma was a breeze with Harden and Bide, I earned that Great Ball. I went out of the Woods and collected Bullet Seed. I taught Bullet Seed to Seedot so he now had a Growth/Bullet Seed combo. Seedot no longer had four sucky moves only 3 . I beat Roxanne with ease and Seedot evolved into Nuzleaf. I now had a Nuzleaf and a Wingull that were both pretty strong. I then did the Team Magma event. I rescued the helpless little Peeko and ventured to Dewford Town. I gave Steven that letter of his and then went back to Rustburo and got the EXP.Share! (Woot! ^.^) I made my way back to Dewford then after 7 attempts beat Brawly. And that’s the story so far...
Team:
lv.16
Attacks:Growth,Bullet Seed, Bide, Nature Power
lv.19
Water Gun, Growl, SuperSonic,Wing Attack.


HM slaves:
NONE AS OF YET.

You can have Meganium, Miltank, Steelix, Togekiss, and Vaporeon. If you can't hack in a Shiny Stone for Togekiss before the Elite Four, then use Crobat.

Update:
-Evolved Pineco and Corphish against Trainers.
-Beat Jasmine.
-Helped Lance out in the Rocket Hideout
-Beat Pryce.
-Dressed up as Team Rocket in Goldenrod, having fun how everyone talks differently when I'm in uniform.

My team:
Spoiler:



Nidoqueen ♀ @Quick Claw Level 31
Poison Point- Calm
-Bite
-Body Slam
-Blizzard
-Double Kick
Very dependable, Quick Claw seems to activate every 2nd or 3rd time. Body Slam is a very good move, and I'm waiting to unleash a paraflinch strategy with Bite whenever a pokemon can actually survive Body Slam and be paralysed.


Snover ♂ @Miracle Seed level 31
Snow Warning- Rash

-Blizzard
-GrassWhistle
-Razor Leaf
-Icy Wind
Unfortunately Snover is lagging behind and is becoming less useful against the other evolved forms of my team. I expected him to do better against Pryce but his Piloswine actually outsped it, using Hail to whip up a Blizzard (damn Grass canceling out Ice's only resistance to Ice). After a revive I gave that Piloswine a taste of its own medicine and bypassed Snow Cloak to hit him with a super effective Blizzard (I really wanted to beat that thing with Snover).



Zangoose ♀ @Shell Bell level 31
Immunity- Lax
-Shadow Claw
-Crush Claw
-Quick Attack
-Swords Dance

Still a fearsome sweeper, always gets the job done. I never used Crush Claw before and I'm liking the results so far with the Defense drop.


Corphish ♂ @None level 31
Hyper Cutter- Quiet
-Knock Off
-Surf
-Swift
-Rock Tomb

Unfortunately Knock Off is my only Dark move for a while. Much stronger now but currently has poor base power in his moves. Still a good utility pokemon for the gym leaders, Knocking Off the berries, Rock Tomb's speed drop helping slower members and Swift bypasses the ever annoying Snow Cloak. (I never knew it learns Swift when it evolves, makes sense now with the star on his head)


Forretress ♂ @None level 31
Sturdy- Calm
-Spikes
-Payback
-Light Screen
-Bug Bite
Has very good resistances now its finally evolved, allowing me to set up Spikes very well. Not much to say yet as it has been taking a back seat to let other members catch up level wise (I insisted on evolving Crawdaunt and Forretress asap)


Xatu ♂ @None level 31
Synchronise- Jolly
-Shadow Ball
-Fly
-U-turn
-Light Screen

Night Shade, although consistent wasn't strong enough for in-game and doesn't faint foes as fast so I opted for Shadow Ball, ignoring the -SpAtk nature. Very fast and is a very good supporter for the team.

Hey I'm back. Sorry, sorry, and sorry that I havn't posted for awhile but between decorating, shopping, holidays, putting away decorations, babysitting my niece, and being sick I haven't been playing much but I guess it's time I stop talking and give results on what i did do on my off time. I didn't keep journal so I'll just put down what I remember.

While going though Firey Path I cought Koffing named it Coughing.

Beat Flannery (bite was the only reason I got to Torkoal then Whynot? proved that don't regret having him at all by bouncing back overheat.

Zoobat evolved around there.

(you may see gaps I'm sorry I was sick give me a break point them out and I'll try to answer them.)

Traded over a Goldeen Egg because the good rod is across the water (I know right)
When goldeen hatched instanly gave it surf and headed on the road to Fortree City which is route 119.

During those adventures I beat down Magma handly with lv 15ish Goldeen that beat numels in there 20s 10lvs higher than goldeen because it learned surf so early.

Got Castform (can't give it nickname but you knew that.)

Just about to get into Fortree fought that ninja boy causing my Golbat to Evolve into Crobat.

Lost to Winona so I went training south.

Forgot to beat her and had to trek back there from Lilycove south to route 123 and then north back up to Fortree.

ChainChomp beat all but altaria which she saved for last but lucky me I got Whynot? out and survived enough Aerial Aces and Flamethrowers to gain the win.

Beat down any Magma that opposed me in all that time.
Got to Mossdeep at some point and fought though the physics to fight the twins who handly beat me.
I thought that might of been a fluke but it did help me notice that Solrock was the worse threat of the two. The second time around I sacked ChainChomp and Zoobat to no success as i got one Fake Tears and Confusion didn't do anything. Switched out to Seaking and Coughing. Seaking dived underwater but was injured beforehand and coughing insta exploded good thing it almost got one hit KOed. Causing Whynot? to come out and start to Mirror Coat.
Good thing in that time Seaking had come up and get a critical hit on Solrock causing massive damage and killing it. But that was short lived becaused Lunatone had maxed out and finished off my Seaking Causing a one hit on Castform too. And then Lunatune finally turned its attenion to Whynot? Taking away 167hp! Whynot then turned Lunatone into Swiss Cheese With Mirror Coat. I think I'm going to do some easy battles and level up a little before going after the last badge.

-Found a Trainer Rematch that gives very good experience, and abusing it very well. Picknicker Erin, who can be rematched at Saturday night has a lv 41 Rapidash and is quite high-levelled compared to other trainer rematches at this point and gives very good experience.
-Beat Clair
-Saved before Dragon's Den.

My team:
Spoiler:



Nidoqueen ♀ @Quick Claw Level 38
Poison Point- Calm
-Bite
-Body Slam
-Blizzard
-Surf

Quick Claw activates quite frequently and I love when parahax from Body Slam+Bite kicks in. Very good survivability and taught her Surf so I could replace Crawdaunt's Surf with Waterfall. Surf is also a reliable move against the Selfdestructing Geodudes and Gravelers in the area.


Abomasnow ♂ @Shell Bell level 40
Snow Warning- Rash

-Blizzard
-GrassWhistle
-Wood Hammer
-Ice Shard

Finally Snover evolved (not as cute anymore :(), its defenses weren't up to scratch at this point in the game. While Abomasnow's defenses aren't that spectacular either, it's better now that it's evolved and Blizzard just decimates foes. Wood Hammer is nice but I kind of regret making it the only Grass move as it takes a sizable chunk of life so I gave him a Shell Bell to heal some damage.



Zangoose ♀ @Silk Scarf level 38
Immunity- Lax
-Shadow Claw
-Crush Claw
-Quick Attack
-Swords Dance

As always, a very good sweeper. Nothing much to say here.


Crawdaunt ♂ @None level 39
Hyper Cutter- Quiet
-Night Slash
-Waterfall
-Dig
-Rock Tomb

Finally has a good Dark attack and a Water STAB that uses his good attack stat. Surprised me when he survived Clair's Gyarados Dragon Rage+Dragon Pulse combo, leaving Crawdaunt with 1 HP left and retaliating with a critical hit Night Slash.


Forretress ♂ @Brightpowder level 37
Sturdy- Calm
-Spikes
-Payback
-Toxic Spikes
-Bug Bite

Very impressed with how much it can take Selfdestructs from Gravelers, allowing for easy grinding when they do the KOing themselves. Added Toxic Spikes to his arsenal to make him and my team very stallish, the Toxic damage proved useful against Clair's Kingdra (which was being pelted by Hail and finally finished off by a Quick Attack from Zangoose after Hydro Pump KO'ed Forretress).


Xatu ♂ @King's Rock level 38
Synchronise- Jolly
-Shadow Ball
-Fly
-U-turn
-Light Screen

Very useful supporter. Has good speed and Fly is useful for Toxic stalling. I actually don't know if a King's Rock can make U-turn flinch a pokemon, it hasn't activated yet but if it does work, it would be good to bring another team mate in safely.

Beginning my challenge.

Started the game and gave myself the name Blue. What can I say? It's a classic that I've been using since... forever.

After going through the whole beginning and saving Prof. Birch's life, I chose torchic. All of my pokemon in the playthrough are frankly a ways off. The closest one is a makuhita. So I decided that Torchic was a good choice, if for nothing other than an HM slave. I think I'll hack in a clamperl early so I can have one of my pokemon to work with. I'm going to have to hack in the evolution later anyway.

Took care of everything remaining in Littleroot and Oldale and continued onward onto Route 102 where I caught my first pokemon that'll be on my team. Hacked in, of course:

Clamperl "Atlantic"
Level 4
Quirky Nature
Caught on Route 102

So me and Atlantic continue up Route 102... until we run into the Lass with the shroomish. Atlantic faints, and unfotunately I have to bring Torchic back out. Hopefully this'll be the last time I resort to using him... moving onto Petalburg.

So to summarize Petalburg in a few sentences: Healed my pokemon, broke into houses looking for interesting conversations or free goods (no such luck), had a conversation with my father, helped Wally catch his first pokemon, decided to take on the gym circuit, and got told by Scott that I was nothing but a rookie trainer. Oh, if only he knew how many times I'd played this game... mwahaha.

Route 104 goes normally. I enter Petalburg Woods and get to find a free potion that I'd never found before. Yay!

In the meanwhile, Atlantic the clamperl is much harder to raise than I thought. It's not that he doesn't have a decent special or defense (cause that's what saving me in battles) but he gains experience so slowly. He's only around lv 7, and Torchic would've been somewhere in the teens by now. Oh well, no time to dwell on it. Time to take out that Aqua grunt and continue on to Rustboro.

*sigh* In Rustboro... and I really wish I could run inside buildings.

Atlantic made Roxanne a breeze. Moving onward.

Lost to another shroomish. Really disliking them right now.

It amuses my how often I can run past the guy who lost the Devon Goods in the process of healing my pokemon, and he never ever makes a comment. You'd think he'd at least ask me why I'm running in the wrong direction.

*sigh* Alright, let's face it, grass pokemon and the move absorb are simply everywhere. Unfortunately, Atlantic doesn't know any non-water type attacks.

Despite all the shroomish and lotad about, I manged to find the Aqua grunt and save Peeko and the Devon Goods. Now I can finally continue onto Brawny where I should also find my next pokemon, makuhita. Of course, I'll take on Brenden first. I won easily, by the way, for those who were worried.

And here's where I'll leave it for now.

Atlantic the clamperl (M) lv 14
Quirky Nature - Battle Armor
Clamp
Water Gun
Whirlpool
Iron Defense

Closing thoughts: So clamperl is a good pokemon, but not a good starter pokemon. There's a reason they're usually found later in the game, higher stats, mono-type attacks, and slower growth being the primary culprits. But other than the odd grass pokemon, Atlantic has been holding up pretty well. It's just unfortunate that I can't abandon using Torchic yet. Makuhita should change that.

Next Time: Dewford Town

I prefer having cross generation in my games and they are all the pokemon I have never raised before

My team predictions:

Grumpig- never though about using before but hoping it can be my special sweeper
Ursaring-Physical sweeper, least useful on the team
Drifblim- Decent typing so may be used a lot, ability could be useful in tight situtaions
Octillery- picked over tentacruel becuase of octazooka(i am intrigued), another special sweeper
Camerupt- bulky reliable pokemon, most useful
Marowak- the dark horse of the team

I will trade all of them over in eggs and train from Lv.1 but having my trainer ID.
Going on holiday for a few days in a minute so I may not update that soon with a long post.
