Well started playing HeartGold again after a pause. The Daycare finally got an Eevee Egg for me when I gave them a Ditto and Eevee. I just picked it up and stored it in PC for the future. Went back to Ecruteak, finally beated Morty's team. Actually that Gengar was not tough at all.... Left the city from the West.. Beated the tariners there, fed an Oran Berry to that sick Miltank. Arrived at Olivine, beated all the trainers in light house. Preparing for the sea route to Cianwood.. Thought for a while to teach Surf to either Marshtomp or dratini and decided Marshtomp is a better option.. Just in the sea and beated 5 Swimmers in it. Finally 1st Final evolution came in the form of Ampharos.

Current Team so far:
Lv 30 (LAX) Ampharos : Tackle, Thunder Punch, Thunder Shock, Thunder wave
Lv 31 (NAIVE) Marshtomp : Surf, Mud Shot , Mud Bomb , Water Gun
Lv 26 (Quirky) Dratini : Dragon Rage, Twister, Thunder Wave, Slam
Lv 23 (Bashful) Riolu : Quick Attack, Force Palm, Counter, Reversal
Lv 31 (Hardy) Quilava : Flame Wheel, Ember, Smoke screen, Swift

I think I should write the next part of my general. I hope this post is not removed as I am sort of double posting..
So finally crossed sea and reached and arrived at Cianwood. Healed in the center , went north did that Suicune event , battled Eusine of course (whose Haunter became a headache for me to my surprise with it's hypnosis and dream eater.. Man I never thought he would be such a headache. haa haa haa..). Also did the other necessities in Cianwood. Battled Cianwood Gym trainers first with my underleveled Lv 22 Riolu and thanks to it's Counter it defeated them all. But I knew I had to train more before facing Chuck as I did not had any Flying or Psychic type in my team. So I used some cheats and grew my whole team to Lv 33+. Defeated Chuck. Crossed the sea, gave Amphy the medicine and then Defeated Jasmine easily to my surprise. Boy I thought her Steelix would be tough but sadily it was not.. I then trvalled towards Mahogany town. But first went back to Goldenrod to collect my Egg. Got the Day care Man's number. Went back and explored the available part of Mt. Ember. Arrived at Mahogany, Got a Rage Candy Bar, went north to complete the Lake of Rage event and battling trainers along the way. Captured it after throwing two Ultra Balls at it and went back to Mahogany to kick some Rocket Butt now. Currently inside the Rocket HeadQuarters with following team.
Lv 34 Marshtomp
Lv 35 Ampharos
Lv 35 Riolu
Lv 34 Dragonair
Lv 34 Quilava

Made much progress in the last week. Just saved bang on 29:00 on Route 216. Anyway, here's the team:


Blissey
lv.36
Toxic / Softboiled / Drain Punch / Refresh

Very much a love/hate relationship with Blissey at the moment. On the one hand, she's great for capturing pokémon (three turns of Toxic and I start throwing pokéballs, whilst Softboiled replenishes hp and Refresh is used to waste turns), and the likes of Kadabra can't touch her. On the other hand, she's awful in battles as nobody in-game uses a "special sweeper" the way competitive players do. A defence stat of 18 and attack of 19 means she can't take a hit, and can't give out one with Drain Punch either.


lv.36
Tail Glow / Shadow Ball / Brine / Surf

Still my most reliable battler (shocker). Never been KO'd due to its bulk, helpful now I seem to somehow have become weaker than trainers for the first time since 2009.


lv.35
Fly / Steel Wing / Faint Attack / Defog

Defog literally just added because of that annoying bit in Mt. Coronet xD. Little else to say really.


lv.36
Dig / Nasty Plot / Flamethrower / Rock Smash

Recently got beat up by a lv.37 Lopunny, didn't even land a hit. Other than that, doing good. Not evolving to lv.50 if I can help it, but meh. May get bored by lv.40


lv.37
Shock Wave / Strength / Charge / Crunch

That last evolution helped no end. Now he's got bulk, plus Intimidate and Charge to supplement it, he's mr. reliable in the team. Shock Wave leaves something to be desired against non-weak pokémon if I don't use Charge though.


lv.37
Rock Tomb / Zen Headbutt / Headbutt / Rock Polish

Just love using this guy so much. That attack is just awesome, and now I found tm69 (Rock Polish) he's truly lethal - the Blissey-like problem of being slow and frail is now cured by being fast and frail after one turn (nothing ever seems to OHKO it as Machoke are the only opponents strong enough, and he outpaces them anyway).

July 24th:
So after resting for one day I decided to carry on the game progress. So, I went inside Rocket Headquarters, defeated every lazy Rocket Bum. Got on the next part where you have to defeat Petrel and how that funny little Murkrow screams the password. Oh well finished the Mahogany Rocket event and headed to battle Pryce with so much ease that I was quite surprised myself because i heard from a walk through that his pokes are tough. Oh well went back to Goldenrod after his defeat for Rocket business. Finished sweeping every one of them and quite enjoyed defeating the admins especially and how when I was supposed to climb the tower to defeat their leader. Also I got at least 6 eevee Eggs thanks to my pokes fast breeding. hee hee hee. I then biked all the way back to Mahogany due to the fact that I still had no flying type at that time. My dragonair was still at Lv 38. Battled trainers and then went inside Ice cave to cross the area. Arrived Blackthorn, went to Gym and defeated it too. Had to use some Rare Candies first to match against Clair's Kingdra especially.
Current team:

I decided to start a new file in my copy of Platinum. Currently, I'm training a few hatchlings around Jubilife City to prepare for my second rival battle.

Player name: Aya

Roster:



Sam the Turtwig (Adamant male, Lv. 10)
-Tackle
-Withdraw
-Absorb

My starter. I have never really played through DPPt with Turtwig as my starter, so what better time than now?



Sora the Sneasal (Jolly male, Lv. 3)
-Scratch
-Leer
-Taunt
-Assist

Sora is the first hatchling that I traded over. I had to breed Assist onto his moveset in Soul Silver after a series of back-and-forth trades between my Diamond and Platinum versions. While that egg move in question isn't too much to write home about at the moment, it'll certainly get more interesting as my team grows.



Sylvia the Manaphy (Timid nature, Lv. 1)
-Tail Glow
-Bubble
-Water Sport

Up until an hour ago, my entire team (Sam and Sora) were weak to both Bug and Fire types. I went through my options for a Water-type team member, and I remembered something: my Manaphy egg was continuing to rot my old copy of the original Pokemon Ranger! So, I decided to transfer the egg over and hatch it. :D

Literally just this minute caught Dialga, in a Dusk Ball - 1 thrown, 1 capture :D
Monferno hit it with Dig, Luxray with a Shock Wave (lowering the attack and causing it to use Roar of Time was probably more useful), then Manaphy hit it with 4 Surfs. I thought for sure the last one had KO'd it, I bet if I had only 5 team members Dialga would only have 1hp left.


Blissey
lv.39
Toxic / Softboiled / Egg Bomb / Refresh



lv.41
Tail Glow / Shadow Ball / Brine / Surf




lv.42
Fly / Steel Wing / Faint Attack



lv.44
Dig / Nasty Plot / Flamethrower / Rock Smash




lv.41
Shock Wave / Strength / Charge / Crunch



lv.40
Rock Tomb / Zen Headbutt / Rock Climb / Rock Polish

Now to check whether Dialga's worth being in my team, then capture the Lake Trio. One of those 4 is replacing Blissey temporarily.


EDIT (2/08/13): So yesterday (just noticed its passed midnight) I went out and captured the Lake Trio - saved the Master Ball for Mesprit, managed to catch it on Route 202. Undecided as to which legendary I'm going to add to the team:


Rash nature

Jolly nature

Adamant nature

Gentle nature

Natures aren't really bothering me too much - it's not like there's a battle frontier in Diamond. It's more a matter of - never used Uxie and Mesprit, haven't used Dialga in years and Azelf since my first save file.

EDIT: Worked out their IVs. Uxie: 21/25/21/21/17/20 Mesprit: 26/8/16/21/2/12 Azelf: 8/0/8/24/18/10 Dialga: 3/1/26/16/7/21
Also discovered the Jolly Gible I captured had 24atk and 28spe IVs. Doubt I'll get any offers if I put it up for trade on here, but who knows...
Ironically out of the legends Uxie, the one I'd be least likely to use, is the least bad. So, still undecided.

FINAL EDIT: Decided on Mesprit. Uxie does something terrible to anyone who looks into its eyes, Dialga nearly ended time last time it was out of a pokéball, and Azelf...well, he was boring and waited for me in the cave instead of legging it like Mesprit.

Finally, hopefully, going to do a playthrough of Heart Gold.

This is my third time starting it. I've gotten bored and distracted both times I've tried it before and ended up playing something else.

This one seems to be off to a good start though. I did Sprout Tower and beat Falkner's gym last night, then this morning I decided to go down onto Route 32 and check the grass out - see what there was to catch and do a bit of grinding. And the very first thing I encountered was a shiny Rattata.

I'm not a big fan of Rattata, but that's the first shiny I've caught in a few months now - the last was an Audino in B2.

And then my Togepi hatched and it's Modest and Serene Grace, so I'm off to a pretty good start.

Oops, yeah just realised I posted something earlier in the complete wrong section. xD

Anyway, yeah, was tag teaming with Mira, found a shiny Zubat aaaaaaaaand she killed it. :c First time anything like that has happened (this was my 4th shiny encounter and my last three went off without a hitch.) I guess I'm lucky but still, sad times. :c On the other hand, I did get PokeRus the say before so I guess it's not all bad. '

Current Team:
Neptune the Prinplup
Venus the Roselia
Jupiter the Togegetic
Saturn the Kirlia

Ah... let's see.

Currently turning circles in the National Park, grinding a bunch of stuff before I go on to Ecruteak, since I'm a bit underleveled for the trainers and the Stantlers along the way.

Spent a long time grinding around Goldenrod to prepare for Whitney's gym. Caught a nice Pinsir in the Bug Catching Contest yesterday. Considered grinding it up until it got a decent fighting move, but it was level 14 and the first Fighting move it gets is Revenge at level 18, and the first good one is Brick Break at level 21, and I wasn't in the mood for that much grinding. Started to think how nice it would be to have a Heracross, then remembered that they're in some of the Headbutt trees. Looked it up and found out that you can find them in Azalea Town, so I walked back down there and set about catching a good one. After many tries, I got just what I wanted - an Adamant with Guts. But it was level 3, and there was no way I was going to grind it up to a decent level (particularly since about the best thing to grind on at that point is Drowzees, who could one-shot any Heracross with Confusion). So I went back to my earlier plan of using a Geodude with Rock Smash and Magnitude to take down that Miltank. The rest of the trainers were typically easy and the only real challenge was that friggin' Miltank, but Geodude could take about five of her Stomps before it was in any danger, so it worked out.

Then I went up to Route 36 and watered the Sudowoodo and caught it. I'd forgotten how much of a challenge that can be - it fainted two of my pokemon as I dawdled around with trying to knock it down into the red without fainting it, but I finally got it. Then went up to the upper part of Route 36 and almost immediately got my ass kicked by a Stantler that apparently got a special version of Hypnosis that's 100% accurate AND a special version of Stomp with a 100% crit chance.

So we went back down to Goldenrod and healed, then I put Paras (with Spore and False Swipe) in the lead and went back up to do some hunting. Caught a really nice Adamant Growlithe in a Premier Ball (Adamant actually isn't my preference in a Growlithe, since I like to use Flamethrower on them, but I couldn't pass it up), and a pretty good Serious Stantler.

And now - turning circles in National Park, grinding up pretty much everyone - my NidoranM just evolved to a Nidorino, but my NidoranF was lagging behind (Scratch just isn't as useful as Peck), so I went down to Ilex Forest to teach her Headbutt. Got Heracross up to level 16 at the moment. Leveled up my Togepi and evolved it to Togetic. Planning on leveling Pidgey until it evolves. Probably going to level Wooper until it evolves. Working on a bunch of other stuff - Zubat, Slowpoke, Gastly, Flaaffy, Dunsparce...


*update*

Knocking around Ecruteak City, went through the Burned Tower, grinding a bit on the surrounding routes, getting ready to challenge Morty and I realized that it's Thursday today, so the Bug Catching Contest is going on. Went down to National Park, put Butterfree in the lead and went in. I was planning on catching a Scyther, but about the third or fourth thing I ran into was a shiny Metapod. That's my second shiny in this playthrough, after the Rattata on Route 32 just a few days ago.

I toyed with the idea of evolving it to a Butterfree (sort of amusing that I caught it with a Butterfree), but I don't think I'll bother. The Metapod shiny isn't anything special, but the Butterfree shiny isn't either, so I think it'll just go in the box with the Rattata. Still though - a shiny's a shiny...

Back to the grind...

About to challenge the Pokémon League (and Barry). Was worried I was going to be horrendously underlevelled, but I made sure each pokémon had minimal experience in its level, in some cases by grinding a level, then gave them each a Rare Candy, now it's not looking too bad particularly as Monferno finally learnt Flare Blitz, so I let him evolve:


lv. 49
Dig / Flare Blitz / Flamethrower / Close Combat

Went from the weakling to one of the strongest members of my team with one level and a trip to the Move Tutor :)


lv. 46
Tail Glow / Shadow Ball / Surf / Ice Beam

If this were football, then Manaphy's the pokémon Ryan Giggs - consistently one of the best around, hasn't changed yet.


lv. 49
Shock Wave / Strength / Thunder Fang / Crunch

Gained a few levels on that water route, then basically retired for Victory Road xD. Lacks powerful STAB, waiting for Discharge.


lv. 47
Fly / Steel Wing / Dark Pulse / Night Slash

Got a little fat and slow now he's the don, but still hitting like a truck.


lv. 46
Stone Edge / Zen Headbutt / Rock Climb / Rock Polish

A team of extremes, this: here I have the highest Attack stat in the games.


lv. 52
Extrasensory / U-turn / Future Sight / Charm

Newbie's prone to being a little over-emotional at times, probably something to do with being "the being of emotion".

And lastly, not making the cut sadly, the other extreme, highest hp in the games:


lv. 43
Toxic / Softboiled / Egg Bomb / Refresh


Leaving the challenge til tomorrow, I need some sleep and with those levels this could take a few hours :(

Decided to do a playthrough of my Heartgold game I just recently started.

Entry 1.

Went to Professor Elm's Lab today to receive a pokemon, which turned out to be a Cyndaquil! I also met a friendly girl named Lyra who has a Marill. Professor Elm asked me to meet Mr. Pokemon to discuss some important topics. Along the way I knocked out a few Pidgey, Sentret, and Caterpie using Cyndaquil and leveled up. Once finally reaching Mr. Pokemon's house I was surprised to see Professor Oak there. After chatting with him a bit he gave me a Pokedex to collect data with!

After meeting Professor Oak and Mr. Pokemon, I received an urgent call from Professor Elm telling me to get back his lab ASAP. On the way back I was confronted by a rude red head boy with a totadile who insisted on a battle. I ended up defeating him which seemed to anger him quite a bit and he buzzed off, dropping his trainer card. I finally got back to Elm's lab with the news of a break-in. Lyra dashed in as well claiming the red headed boy was the one who stole the pokemon from the lab. At that moment I remembered seeing the boy's name on his trainer card... his name was "Silver". I told the officer his name and was on my way.

Once that rubbish was done and done I finally began my journey as a pokemon trainer. I began walking Route 29 (again) only to find Lyra once more. She taught me how to catch pokemon properly. With her experience I managed to catch a wild sentret! I later made it over to Cherrygrove City once more to stop at the pokemon center, where I rested up and traded my newly caught sentret for a Larvitar!

Current Team:

Cyndaquil Lvl. 7

Larvitar lvl. 5

Just defeated the Pokémon League. As I expected, it was a 1hour+ job. Mesprit, Manaphy and Rampardos really came into their own. Manaphy swept Bertha solo after 3 Tail Glows, and also dispatched Spiritomb by the same methods (After it had already taken out 3 of my pokémon and severely incapacitated Mesprit). Rampardos would've got the full sweep against Flint if he actually had fire-types, but Stone Edge ran out of pp so I let Honchkrow and Infernape take on Drifblim and Steelix. And lastly Mesprit...well, when Garchomp came up I sent out Luxray to lower his attack, then switched to Mesprit to dodge Earthquake - but it never came. Mesprit tanked a Giga Impact, used Charm. Repeated 3 times, then a combo of Future Sight and Extrasensory took down both Garchomp and Lucario.

Ironically, as well as Lucian (as usual) being the toughest E4 battle, Aaron actually managed to get me down to 1 pokémon. Normally I destroy him, but I guess it was just my type choices letting me down.

Entry 2.

I then continued my journey after resting at the Pokemon Center. I continued up Route 30. I defeated a few trainers and wild pokemon along the way, gaining more and more experience. I then discovered a cave known as "Dark Cave". I went inside to discover breakable rocks and such, however none of my pokemon could crush any rocks. On the way out I ran into a wild Zubat, which I decided to capture. After leaving the cave I went west through route 31 and into Violet City.

Once arriving, I rested at the Pokemon Center. I met a man named Primo near the PC box. He talked about his TV show and what not and asked me a few things. In the end he gave me a Slugma egg for answering his questions correctly.

I soon noticed a gym in this city and decided to go train at the Sprout Tower before the big match. I defeated trainers all the way from bottom to top! I was then up against the elder of the tower. He was no match against my newly caught Zubat and my Cyndaquil. For defeating him he gave me TM 70, which contained "Flash".

After defeating the Sprout Tower elder, it was time I took on the gym leader, Falkner. He started with Pidgey and I started with Cyndaquil. Cyndaquil nearly knocked it out with one ember attack and took minimal damage. He then sent out his final pokemon, Pidgeotto. I managed to pull of a critical hit with Cyndaquil's ember which nearly knocked it out. After another ember attack I was victorious, gaining the Zephyr Badge and TM 51, Roost.

Current Team:

Zubat Lvl. 10

Egg (Slugma) Lvl. 0

Cyndaquil Lvl. 13

Larvitar Lvl. 12

Entry 3.

After defeating the first gym I received a call from Professor Elm telling me to pick up a egg from the Poke Mart. After picking up the egg I continued south of Violet City heading for Azalea Town. I beat a few trainers and wild pokemon along the way to Union Cave where I stopped for a rest. In the Pokemon Center I met an old fisherman who gave me an old rod! I then continued into Union Cave and ran into a wild Onix, which I caught. I weaved my way through the cave, defeating trainers along the way. One battle I used Cyndaquil, who battled very hard. I then looked over to see it evolving into a Quilava! A few matches later I realized I was nearly out of the cave.

I exited the cave to find myself in Azalea Town. All was not good though, Team Rocket was harming all of the slowpoke who call Azalea home. I went down to the Slowpoke Well and defeated team rocket and one of its officials, Proton. After dealing with Team Rocket a man named Kurt offered to craft me a pokeball from an appricorn as a thank you.

I then strolled into the Azalea gym. It was very forest like inside, and had a large tree at the end with the gym leader, Bugsy, standing below it. I challenged him after defeating a few trainers inside. He led with a Scyther and I led with my Larvitar. He managed to get off a U-turn very fast which did a great deal of damage to Larvitar. Bugsy then switched into Metapod, which I KOed in one hit with a rock slide. He then sent out Scyther again which used U-turn again, taking out Larvitar. I then called in Onix as he switched into Kakuna. I defeated it in one hit with a rock tomb. He then just had his Scyther left which was two hit KOed by my Onix's rock tomb. I received the Hive Badge for winning along with TM 89 U-turn.

Current Team:

Zubat Lvl. 14

Egg Lvl. 0

Egg (Slugma) Lvl. 0

Onix Lvl. 17

Quilava Lvl. 14

Larvitar Lvl. 16

Entry 4.

After Defeating the Azalea gym, I headed for Ilex Forest. On the way there I was confronted by my rival, Silver. He demanded a battle of course and led with his Gastly and I led with Zubat. Gastly was taken out in two bite attacks. He then sent out Croconaw which KOed Zubat quite badly. I then sent out Quilava, who did some damage before being KOed by water gun. I went with my strongest pokemon next, Larvitar. Larvitar managed to take out Croconaw with a rock slide as well with his final pokemon, Zubat.

After defeating my rival I finally headed into Ilex Forest. I then helped someone recover their lost Farfetch'd and received HM 01 Cut as a reward. I continued through the forest and learned headbutt and also met a kimono girl. Exiting the forest I retrieved TM 12 taunt from a woman.

Once out of the forest I began heading for Goldenrod City and the third gym. I defeated a few trainers along the road to Goldenrod and leveled my pokemon up a bit. Also, with all the walking I've been doing, my eggs hatched along the way into a Slugma and Togepi! I also met the daycare man and lady, who also happen to be Lyra's granparents. I decided to leave my baby Slugma at the daycare so he could grow and gain levels more easily.

After walking a bit ways north of the daycare house I arrived in Goldenrod City. I rested at the pokemon center there and also traded my Togepi for a Chikorita. I also won a radiocard from the Radio Tower where I also met the gym leader, Whitney. I decided to train North of Goldenrod on Route 35 to prepare for Whitney. I defeated many trainers and wild pokemon until I believed they were strong enough for Whitney.

I headed to her gym for the challenge. She led with Clefairy and I led with Zubat. I managed to knock out Clefairy with two wing attacks and take no damage. She then sent out her Miltank, her strongest pokemon. Miltank immobilized Zubat with attract however, and knocked out Zubat with a few rollouts. I decided to go with Chikorita next. I managed to pull off a poisonpowder and a reflect before getting KOed. Onix was my next choice. I was immediately immobilized from attract and wasn't able to pull off any rock tombs, however the poison was doing justice to her Miltank. I decided to switch out Onix for Larvitar. I used sandstorm after being attracted once more. After some stalling, Miltank was finally defeated and I earned the Plain Badge and TM 45 attract.

Current Team:

Zubat Lvl. 18
QUilava Lvl. 19
Chikorita Lvl. 19
Onix Lvl. 18
Larvitar Lvl. 21

In Storage:

NONE

At Daycare:

Slugma Lvl. 1+

Entry 5.

After beating the Goldenrod Gym I headed north of Goldenrod for Ecruteak City. On the way there I decided to stop at the Pokeathelon Dome and play a few courses. I also stopped to the bug catching contest held at the national park. I ended up capturing a Scyther, but didn't even place third! Atleast I caught a Scyther though! After that was over with I continued through Routes 36 and 37, defeating trainers and wild pokemon along the way. Chikorita also evolved into Bayleef!

I finally made it to Ecruteak City and decided to rest up at the pokemon center and happened to meet the PC Box guy, Bill. After I was done resting I went to the Ecruteak Dance Theater to discover a Team Rocket grunt. I defeated him in one hit and was rewarded with HM 03 Surf. I then bought some supplies at the Poke Mart afterwards.

Next I headed out west to Routes 38 and 39 for some training which eventually led me to Olivine City. I was told the gym leader wasn't there by Silver, so I just decided to look around the town. I managed to find a fisherman who gave me a good rod. After looking around I headed back to Ecruteak and went inside the Burnt Tower. I met Eusine and the Ecruteak gym leader, Morty there. Silver also happened to be there and wanted a battle of course. I led with Zubat and he led with his Gastly. Gastly was taken out in one bite. He then went to Magnemite which Zubat also KOed using confuse ray and bite. Next he sent out Croconaw. I KOed it with the same tactic. Lastly, he sent out his Zubat which was down within two bite attacks. At the end of the battle my Zubat began to evolve into a Golbat! After that ordeal I managed to get a glimpse of the legendary dog trio, Raikou, Entei and Suicune.

I then left Ecruteak to make a quick stop at Goldenrod City to meet up with Bill. He gave me an Eevee as a gift! I ended up switching out Onix for it and is now in the Daycare with Slugma.

I then headed back to Ecruteak for the gym battle. I made my way to Morty and led with Golbat.
Golbat took out his lead, Gastly, in one blow with a bite. He then sent out a Haunter which was taken out by two bites. Next was his powerful Gengar, which unfortunately put Golbat to sleep with a Hypnosis and then downed by two shadow balls. My next pick was Quilava who overcame Gengar with a few flame wheels. Quilava was then KOed by his final Haunter however. I then sent out Scyther which ended Haunter using pursuit and making me victorious. FOr beating Morty I received the Fog Badge and TM 30 shadow ball.

Current Team:

Golbat Lvl. 23
Bayleef Lvl. 20
Quilava Lvl. 22
Scyther Lvl. 23
Eevee Lvl. 16
Larvitar Lvl. 26

Entry 6.

After defeating Morty, I departed Ecruteak City for my home town of New Bark. I chatted with my mother and Professor Elm. I also did some fishing there and managed to real in and capture a Chinchou! I later switched in Quilava for Chinchou.

I then passed through Cherrygrove and Violet City once more to pick up some items using surf. I then headed south to Union Cave where I defeated trainers and wild pokemon in the underground levels of the cave. I then passed through Azalea Town and the Ilex Forest once more, as well as Goldenrod City. I then stopped at the Pokeathelon Dome and played some games. I purchased a Metal Coat with my earnings!

After winning at the Pokeathelon Dome I passed through Ecruteak again and made my way to Olivine City. I decided to explore the famous lighthouse there. I made my to the top, defeating trainers along the way, to find the Olivine gym leader and a sick pokemon. She told me should would not accept any matches until the lighthouse pokemon was feeling better. She told me about a pharmacy in Cianwood City that has the medicine the pokemon needs.

I then headed off to Cianwood City. I surfed around the Whirl Islands, defeating trainers and wild pokemon. Once I arrived on the island of Cianwood I saw Suicune again. It starred at me and then took off. I then ran into Eusine from the Burnt Tower who challenged me to a battle, which I was victorious. Once back on track I got the medicine for the lighthouse pokemon, but wanted to battle the gym there. I made my way to the Cianwood Gym and challenged Chuck. He led with Primeape and I led with Golbat. Golbat knicked out Primeape with one wing attack. He then sent out his powerful Poliwrath. Goldbat nearly knocked it out with wing attack, but a Sitrus Berry and a Hyper Potion put Poliwrath back in action in a snap. It soon downed Golbat with a few surfs. I next sent out Scyther, which unfortunately was KOed the same way and dealt minimal damage to the Poliwrath. I finally sent out Bayleef who manged to down Poliwrath with two magical leafs. For defeating Chuck I received the Storm Badge and TM 01 focus punch. I also met Chuck's wife outsidet he gym and received HM 02 fly!

Current Team:

Chinchou Lvl. 25
Eevee Lvl. 27
Golbat Lvl. 28
Bayleef Lvl. 28
Scyther Lvl. 28
Larvitar Lvl. 30

In Storage/Rotation:

I restarted my SoulSilver game so please disregard the previous entries.

Chapter I | "The Journey Begins"

My first Pokémon I chose was Totodile. The whole theme behind this playthrough is to utilize a new team setup as opposed to the usual Cyndaquil, Geodude, Bellsprout, Pidgey, Abra, Dratini combo.

So I did all the beginning story elements. (Get starter, leave home, talk to Mr. Pokémon etc.).

The first Pokémon I legitimately caught was Pidgey. When I made it to Violet city, I did the event in Bellsprout Tower and then headed to route 31 and grinded both Pidgey and Totodile to level 14.

Then I challenged Falkner and beat him easily.

I was given the egg by Elm's scientist and was confronted by the Kamino tart.

I headed south to Route 33 and caught a Mareep and returned to Route 31 and grinded until she learned ThunderShock and then went to Bellsprout Tower and grinded until level 14, then I headed back to Route 33 and grinded the team to level 16. Mareep evolved at level 15. I saved and stopped at the docks after battling one Lass, one youngster and two fishermen.

Entry 7.

I left Cianwood City after beating the gym there and headed for Olivine City to deliver the medicine. Once the lighthouse pokemon was healed Jasmine returned to her gym where I then challenged her. She led with a Magnemite and I led with my Onix. Magnemite was down after one dig. She then sent out Steelix, which defeated Onix with a few iron tails. Next I used Chinchou which knocked out Steelix with surf. She followed up with her final Magnemite, which was all so knocked out by Chinchou. I obtained the Mineral Badge and TM 23 iron tail from defeating Jasmine. After the gym match I decided to investigate the newly finished Safari Zone. I defeated trainers along the path towards it and rested at the Pokemon Center. While I was there I traded Slugma for a Houndour.

After my victory at the Olivine Gym and Safari Zone adventure, I made my way back to Ecruteak once more, but instead went eastward towards Mahogany Town. I rested up upon arriving and then headed north towards the Lake of Rage. I defeated several trainers along the way. I then noticed a shiny, red Gyarados swimming about and decided to investigate, and soon enough I was battling it. Chinchou managed to dispatch it quite easily due to it's x4 weakness to electricity. Once defeated I met a dragon trainer named Lance who told me to help him investigate a building in Mahogany Town. We soon discovered a trap door in the building and found ourselves in Team Rocket's secret hideout. There were tons of grunts everywhere, which were all defeated by Lance and I. We also managed to shut off the power source of the radio signals by defeating multiple Electrodes.

Once the Team Rocket ordeal was done I headed to the Mahogany Gym. I challenged its leader, Pryce. He led with a Seel and I led with Chinchou. Chinchou easily defeated it with two sparks and only taking damage from hail. He then sent out Piloswine which was massively hurt from surf, but managed to knock out Chinchou. I sent out Houndour, whom managed to down Piloswine with two ember attacks. He then ended with Dewgong and took out Houndour. I sent in Onix next to deal some damage with rock tomb. Once Onix was defeated I went to Larvitar and managed to defeat Dewgong with a rock slide. For defeating Pryce I received the Glacier Badge and TM 07 Hail.

Current Team:

Chinchou Lvl. 32
Eevee Lvl. 31
Onix Lvl. 30
Houndour Lvl. 30
Golbat Lvl. 29
Larvitar Lvl. 33

In Storage/Rotation:

Bayleef Lvl. 28

In Daycare:

Quilava Lvl. 27+
Scyther Lvl. 27+

Entry 8.

After defeating the Mahogany Gym I decided to head for the Whirl Islands to do some exploring. Along the way there I snagged a Heracross while headbutting some trees. Once I was at the Islands I found a few items and also captures a wild Horsea!

Once I was done exploring I headed to Goldenrod City where I saw Team Rocket had control of the Radio Tower. I defeated all the grunts, executives, leaders, etc. Chinchou evolved into a Lanturn and Houndour and evolved into a Houndoom along the way! I also went to the Pokemon Center and evolved Onix into a Steelix!

After expelling Team Rocket from the Radio Tower I was rewarded a Rainbow Wing. I then Headed east of Mahogany town for some training. I managed to train Heracross to lvl. 30, and also evolve Horsea into a Seadra! I also did some training with Golbat and evolved it into a Crobat. Larvitar also received some training and then evolved into Pupitar! I also did a good amount of fishing there and captured a Remoraid! I then made a quick stop back to the Daycare House. I switched out Bayleef and put in Remoraid.

Current Team:

Bayleef Lvl. 30
Eevee Lvl. 35
Heracross Lvl. 30
Seadra Lvl. 32
Scyther Lvl. 31
Pupitar Lvl. 37

introduction
Hi everyone, just wanted to say hello because this is my first travel journal! I've been replaying one of each series of games in an effort to satisfy my "completionist" nature -- for me this means training all of the Pokemon I catch & filling up my Pokedex for each game I play! So far I've gotten through FireRed & Emerald, and I'm right in the middle of Platinum! Hope you enjoy!

entry one: canalave city/iron island
I finally finished training outside of Canalave City, & decided to check out the library & the gym in town. However, while I was crossing the bridge, Barry showed up & of course wanted yet another battle. Even though I had just finished training up my team, I had a harder time beating him than normal -- he was able to knock out a few of my Pokemon, but in the end I was able to win yet again. He seemed a little bit salty about it, actually...

Once I was done dealing with Barry, I spent a little time in the library looking up the Sinnoh region legends. Most of them didn't make sense to me... a lot of stuff about lake guardians? Hopefully I'll find out what that means later on in my journey.

I felt ready to take on the gym leader in Canalave, Byron, even though some local townsfolk suggested I train at Iron Island first. I decided I'd use my fighting-type Pokemon, along with some fire & ground types as backup.

Gym Lineup:
Atlas the Machoke
Lotus the Medicham
Dante the Infernape
Melisandre the Magmar
Marshall the Quagsire

I won the gym badge pretty handily, thanks to type advantages and all the training I had done before reaching Canalave City. I headed back to the Pokemon Center to heal & switch up my team members, and then hopped onto the ferry to Iron Island.

I poked around inside the cave for a while, battling trainers and hunting for cool items. I also met a friendly trainer named Riley, who told me that he had heard about some weird disturbances deep in the mine. The two of us teamed up and explored even deeper in the cave, and sure enough -- we ended up finding a few Galactic Grunts who were no doubt behind the strange noises & disturbances.

As a thank you for helping him figure out what was going on, Riley gave me a mysterious egg, and I managed to find two important items -- a Shiny Stone & a Metal Coat! I decided not to try to catch a Steelix after finding the Metal Coat (I'll just evolve the Onix I've trained). Now just to decide if I should evolve my Togetic or my Roselia with this stone... After a boat trip back to to the mainland and a long bike ride, the egg hatched into a young Riolu! Definitely worth all that time poking around in the mine.

New Pokemon:
Anubis the Riolu

CHAPTER II | "Caves and Wells"

Caught a Hoppip and trained it to be even with the members of my team.

Went inside the cave when I was done, battled all trainers, explored all accessible areas.

Exited the cave and headed to Azalea Town and spoke with the Apricorn/PokéBall guy named Kurt. He ran off to fight Team Rocket who was at the well east of the town.

Followed him and saw that he hurt himself chasing the Rocket Grunts.

Went deeper into the well, found some items and then took at all the Grunts and then battled Proton.

After beating Rocket out and before leaving. Found a Slowpoke that I caught. Decided I'd train him for the team.

Now I'm east of Azalea training Slowpoke to be on the same level as the rest of the team.



UPDATED AS OF 8.20.2013 -------->

CHAPTER IV | "Beat Dem Bugs"

Now with Slowpoke trained to an equal level with the rest of the team. We headed to the Gym. I can't remember the set of events but I beat both Benjamin "Ben" (My rival) and Bugsy in one go. During the Gym Hoppip evolved into Skipbloom and Pidgey into Pidgeotto. After acquiring the Badge I headed into the forest west of Azalea Town. I caught to Far'fetches for a trainer who lost them in the woods and he rewarded me with HM01; Cut. I taught it to Croconaw and continued through the forest. Picking up a Headbutt TM from a gentlemen deep in the woods smashing his head into trees.

After exiting the forest I battled all the trainers north of the exit of the forest and ran into LoserLyra, forcibly introducing me to her grandparents who run the Day-Care. After begrudgingly dealing with the trio I headed to Goldenrod.



CHAPTER V | "Goldenrod"

Exploring Goldenrod was a chore. I stopped at the Department Store, only went up one floor and bought some essentials. Then headed to the west side of town and answered some cheesy questions at the Radio Tower and got a Radio Card for my PokéGear. As well as the Blue Card from Mary on the 2nd floor.

After that I headed to the underground area and battled some trainers and came out on the other side and the other side of town. I stopped at the Bikeshop and agreed to advertise his Bike to get customers.

Finishing all that I headed to the Gym and battled all the trainers within and bested Whitney with some moderate trouble. (But only because of Attract) :3

At the check point between the Goldenrod and the route north of the city a gentlemen asked that he give a Spearow with a letter attached to it to his friend on the route directly east of Violet City. (We'll get there, just not right away)

Finally, I took a picture of my whole team thanks to a courteous photographer waiting on the route.



CHAPTER VI | "Moving Up and Beyond"

So I headed north and battled all the trainers on that route and entered the check point and entered the Bug Catching Contest (Tues. 8/20/2013) and won when I caught a Beedrill. The first Pokémon that appeared to me and I caught it.

Then I headed to the route east of the park and battled a psychic and a nerd. Headed North East and met with a very mean tree.

Sprayed some water on it and it attacked.

FLASHBACK (Between the events of Chapter V and VI): Got a SquirtleCan from the Flower Shop in Goldenrod.

Caught the Sudowoodo. And headed east from there. I trekked back through Violet City (Picking up Rock Smash on the way and teaching it to Flaafy) and stopped on the route east of VIolet City. Gave the Spearow to the sleeping gent and he thanked me and gave me something that is clearly not important enough for me to remember.

Headed towards Violet City again and back the way I came, headed North West from where Sudowoodo once stood and battled two double battles the Beauties giving me the most trouble.

Finally made it E. City (Can't remember the name of the town).

CHAPTER VII | "Morty, that Son of A ..."

My time in E. City was well spent. Battled a Grunt harassing a Kimono Girl. Beat him down and got the Surf HM from a kindly old man. Taught it to Slowpoke. I then proceeded to the Burnt Tower and encountered the pompous douche looking for Suicune. I also battled Ben again. Beat him. Headed into the tower and used my Dowsing Machine (got earlier) and found some items hidden. Beat some Fire Breathers and headed down the ladder. Encountered the three Legendary Hounds and Suicune approached me and ran away with the rest of them.

Quisine or whatever got jelly when Suicune came to me and ran off... I headed back up and went to the Gym finally.

Beat all the trainers rather easily and then I battled Morty. Spamming Hypnosis constantly and one-hitting my Slowpoke. I eventually overcame him with Croconaw and his bite.

Got my fourth badge and saved n' quit.



PS: NO MOOD TO SPELLCHECK! Lmao. Enjoy.

On Monday, my boyfriend traded me his copy of Heart Gold (with the Pokewalker) for my spare copy of White 2. So ever since then, I've been doing a nice playthrough.

Currently, I'm exiting Ilex Forest. I had to backtrack a little, since I wanted an Aipom, and with only two badges, I couldn't find any unless I wanted to wait until I approach Mt. Mortar. They are surprisingly pesky to catch!

Player name: Moriah



Eddie the Aipom (Jolly Male, Lv. 5)

The reason I still need to defeat Whitney. Eddie needs a lot of training, but my other party members need more experience, too.



Nolan the Spinarak (Jolly male, Lv. 18)

Since I'm playing Heart Gold, I really wanted to use Spinarak. Nolan has been surprisingly useful for a Pokemon that is so poor competitively.



Billy the Bayleef (Calm male, Lv. 19)

My starter. I prefer choosing Chikorita, since there are so many good Water (and to a lesser extent, Fire) types in Johto.



Marcelle the Staryu (Timid, Lv. 18)

I obtained Marcelle via the Pokewalker. So far, she's been useful (and fast!).

CHAPTER VIII | "Training for Days"

So after beating Morty I headed to the National Park and battled some trainers in the early morn and my Skipbloom finally evolved into a Jumppuff. At some more battles I realized the sad truth. His stats were horrible and having him on the team was hurting more than helping. I stuck him in the box and decided to pull out Geodudette, seeing the nature was fine I began training her south of Goldenrod, very annoying to train her to equal levels with the others in the team (Level 27) so after training Geodudette into the proper level (getting her into a Graveller before the training finished) I used the PokéDex to track down the sixth and final member of the party.

I headed to Mt. Mortar and found Machop and captured him. Then I headed to the west of E. City. After 17 levels I finished training him and put him one more level to get him to Machoke. Then I traded him with my other DS to get Machamp and Golem. After that I headed South West and battled all the trainers and enetered Olivine City and met with Ben. Complaining that the leader wasn't there. I explored the city, stopping at every house and talking to every person and then headed to the light house after receiving word that Jasmine was there.

I battled everyone in the light house and got to Jasmine who was looking after a sick Amphros. Speaking of which, one my way up the tower. Croconaw evoled into a Feraligator and my Flaaffy into a Amphros. I saved n' quit in the top of the light house.

So I decided to replay Platinum to start building my Pokemon collection for X and Y. This will be my first time playing a Sinnoh game in over a year, so hopefully I'll be able to fully enjoy it.

Platinum Journey #1
I started the game up, and was pretty glad to see all the snow in Twinleaf Town. I think it's a lot nicer than regular Twinleaf Town in D/P. Anyway, I proceeded to the house of my rival (Barry) and went to Route 201 with him. Professor Rowan then walked up out of nowhere and decided to give us Pokemon for being so reckless. I chose Piplup while Barry chose Turtwig. We then battled with our new Pokemon. I won, of course. We then went to Lake Verity and met some strange blue-haired man named Cyrus. We then tried to catch the legendary Pokemon at Lake Verity, but couldn't because we lacked any "P-O-K-accent-E Balls!" Then we raced to Sandgem Town to stock up. When we got to Sandgem Town, Rowan entrusted us two complete strangers with our very own Pokedex and a task of catching all know Pokemon. Lucas, his assistant, then showed me around town and called me poor, saying I couldn't afford anything at the Pokemart. Jerk. Then I went home to tell my mother about everything before I embarked on my adventure. After informing my own mother, Barry's mother came over and told me to deliver a package to Barry in Jubilife City. I accepted and went on my way. Arriving at Jubilife City, I met a man codenamed Looker and delivered the package to Barry. I proceeded to Oreburgh City and destroyed Roark's team. Then made my back to Jubilife and started towards Floaroma Town.

• Beat Clair.
• Defeated Team Rocket
• Fought Red Gyarados but since I caught a blue one earlier I saw no need to catch a illegitimate shiny.

Well, lots has happened since my last update. I've got the National Pokédex, migrated 6 pokémon (Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Wynaut, Manectric, Salamence) from Emerald, completed the Battle Zone (including capturing Heatran. Got bored of Battle Tower before one set was up though). And today I traded over my HeartGold team from 2011, travelled to Shaymin's white rock, then released Cresselia as a roaming pokémon, before defeating the Elite Four. Didn't even have to use an item :)
Here's the team:

Feraligatr
lv. 82
Hardy
Crunch / Superpower / Ice Punch / Waterfall

This guy has the most ribbons out of all my pokémon - ahead of Scizor and Latios (latter is still in Gen III, has contest ribbons so will most likely end up having the most). Effort Ribbon, Sinnoh Champ, all 6 mood ribbons, Gorgeous & Royal ribbons from the institute, and of course Legend Ribbon for defeating Red. Like all of my HeartGold team, has Pokérus.


Togekiss
lv. 80
Timid
Hustle ability
Aura Sphere / Extrasensory / Air Slash / Extremespeed

Did have Double-Edge, removed for Defog. Went to the move tutor and found it couldn't learn it - I guess if you didn't evolve the pokémon in that game, the move tutor can't teach pre-evolution's moves?


Magmortar
lv. 80
Timid
Overheat / Focus Blast / Rock Climb / Thunderbolt

Love that this guy gets Thunderbolt. Just...love it.


Scizor
lv. 78
Sassy
Technician ability
Bullet Punch / X-Scissor / Night Slash / Rock Smash

Couldn't believe my luck when I got a Scyther with Technician. Loved it instantly due to Cut and Rock Smash being powerful moves. Also loved how the once-feared Lucario was dispatched with Bullet Punch in my Champion re-match.


Lanturn
lv. 76
Brave
Volt Absorb ability
Stockpile / Discharge / Surf / Ice Beam

Again, was so glad to capture a Chinchou with the right ability, even if its only really good for trolling Lt. Surge in HGSS as I don't battle competitively :)


Steelix "Rusty"
lv. 78
Brave
Rock Head ability
Earthquake / Double-Edge / Stone Edge / Iron Tail

Trading him from my own Steelix "Rocky" (also an in-game trade in HGSS) with Jasmine was a brilliant move. Brave nature + Rock Head means Double-Edge hits like a train...or a giant metal snake...without recoil.

Still playing Heart Gold. Currently, I've got 5 badges in my possession, and I'm searching for a Magmar in the Burned Tower to hatch a Slugma egg from Primo. My current team is quite solid, but I really need a Fire type before I go along and fight Jasmine; however, I was thinking of defeating the Rockets at Mahogany Town first.

Party:



Bastille the Raikou (Jolly, Lv. 40)

I'm sure many of you have noticed how in nearly all of my playthroughs, that my party members have awesome natures for their species. But when I had just defeated Morty and was hunting the roaming beasts with a Golbat traded over from my Diamond, I just didn't care after a certain point. So, I settled for a Jolly nature on Bastille; this is only in-game, and at least it boosts his speed.



Billy the Bayleef (Calm male, Lv. 28)

I feel like the only player here who needs to level up their starter. I certainly plan to do so before facing off against those Rockets.



Earl the Seadra (Timid male, Lv. 32)

Another Pokemon traded over from my Diamond. So far, he's exceeded Marcelle's performance, and I know he'll come in handy against Clair.



Nolan the Ariados (Jolly male, Lv. 32)

Nolan's still pulling his weight. However, he really needs better STAB moves than Poison Sting and Leech Life. -__-;
