UMC Bug, Unova: Update 2

- I beat the 3rd gym no problem
- Colress took a while because his steel-types resisted literally every move i have
- I caught Blockhead the lv. 19 Dwebble
- Trained against the bazilion people around Nimbasa. Stampede evolved again ->
- The 4th gym was a battle against Static and parahax
- I caught Charlesthe lv. 23 Karrablast, who i immediately evolved to Escavalier->
- The 5th gym was a battle against flinch-hax I lost twice and then finally won convincingly when he not only didn't get a flinch on Rock Slide, but missed it altogether.
- I then realized i could have gone and caught a Joltik all along, so i did so and called it Webz
- I went to the move-tutor and got Bug Bite and Iron Head on Charles, and Signal Beam on Webz
- Went to the move relearner to get Stampede Megahorn


Team:

Beleafe, the lv. 32 Leavanny First half MVP

Razor Leaf, Bug Bite, Slash, String Shot
"Still going strong as the team's main damage dealer"

Stampede, the lv. 31 Scolipede

Poison Tail, Bug Bite, Bulldoze, Megahorn
"Was stuck between not being as strong as Beleafe, and not as type-covering as Blockhead, but Megahorn might very well give him his niche"

Blockhead, the lv. 31 Dwebble

Rock Slide, Bulldoze, Bug Bite
"Rock and ground moves made him useful even before he caught up in levels. He is already a powerhouse, with even greater potential"

Charles, the lv. 30 Escavalier

Iron Head, Bug Bite, Headbutt, Bug Buzz
"The short while I've had him he has been showing off with his huge Attack stat"

Webz, the lv. 27 Joltik

Signal Beam, Electroweb, Volt Switch, Slash
"Literally caught him 5 minutes before i started writing this post"

Water Monotype Challenge - Update 1
FireRed | Marko


Started my journey by picking Squirtle as my starter Pokemon. Surprisingly enough, she was female so after being stumped about what to name her eventually went with Peaches. The first part of the game was easy with only a little grinding before facing my rival, Polo, at the route beside Viridian. Everything else up to defeat Brock was easy. Peaches evolved into a Wartortle a bit before the battle even. After the battle I bought the Magikarp at the Pokemon Center and named him Percy. Then there was the long trek through Mount Moon with a Wartortle and a useless Magikarp before reaching Cerulean. The fossil I picked up was the Helix Fossil in which I do hope to turn into an Omanyte and might use on my team. My impatience was already showing through later when I went to defeat Misty with a level 18-19 Percy and Peaches, but hey. We won. Soon after while heading down to Vermillion City Percy evolved into a Gyarados so the S.S. Anne was easy (though I missed the Body Slam TM. Whoops oh well) and now after I catch an Oddish (HM Slave) work my way to defeating Lt. Surge. Hopefully the battle won't be too difficult.


Peaches (Wartortle) ♀ | Lonely | Level 28
Mega Punch, Water Gun, Bite, Withdraw


Percy (Gyarados) ♂ | Naughty | Level 26
Splash, Tackle, Bite, Dragon Rage

I'm sorry, hacking is not allowed. You are free to trade that Pokemon in since it is version exclusive to Red, but hacking is still not allowed, even for this circumstance. Please release the hacked Electabuzz.

Okay, sorry, luckily I haven't used him yet, I'll release him when I can start the game again.

Can I trade one from my storage Crystal with Fire Punch and Ice Punch. It's level 15. I'm asking because the moves.

This challenge just keeps getting better and better, Update #4 on the way. I left off when I defeated Lt. Surge, and I bought 10 repels for Rock Tunnel before heading out. I reached Route 5 and realised I didn't have a bicycle yet, so I had to backtrack to Vermillion City to get the bike voucher to trade in for a bicycle. Once I got that, the game didn't seem so slow anymore, and Slendy breezed through every trainer on the way to Rock Tunnel. In the process of battling, Slendy evolved into Charizard. Yay . Now that I had a Charizard, Rock Tunnel was much easier, and although Slendy did run out of PP for ember towards the end, he had mega punch and slash to compensate for ember. After exiting Rock Tunnel, I avoided the trainer outside the cave and prepared to catch Vulpix and get Eevee. Apparently on Route 8, in order to get to the patch of grass that you must cut, you must battle either the gambler or the lass, so I chose to battle the lass. Of course, with Slendy, she was pretty easy, although sing was annoying. T_T Anway, it felt like forever before I finally found and caught a Vulpix with 1 great ball. Nicknamed it Pixxy, and avoided the rest of the trainers. Upon arrive in Celadon City, I immediatly went to pick up my Eevee and nicknamed it FlameNFame. This is where I am for now, and I must go grind Vulpix and Eevee on routes 8,10, and 11. How am I doing in my fire monotype? Current party is: Slendy the Charizard Lvl.40 with: Scratch, Mega Punch, Ember, and Slash; Pixxy the Vulpix Lvl.15(lol under-leveled by a lot) with: Ember and Tail Whip; and FlameNFame the Eevee with: Tackle and Sand-Attack O_o. Anyway, any moveset suggestions are always welcome, and as always good luck to everyone attempting this, and if you find any errors in my typing, it's most likely the tablet I'm using. :p See you later with an update.

I was puzzled by this rule actually
I would imagine you should be able to get Electabuzz in the version you can't get him in at the point where you would be able to get it in the counterpart, at the level you would be able to get it in the counterpart. It wouldn't make sense that you can get it at the start in the game it does not appear in, and not in the one he does (Which would kinda defeat a point of the challenge if you could)

Aside from that, i don't see why a distinction between trading and hacking should be needed for challenges, they are equally much cheating if overdone.

As long as you are at Goldenrod, which is where those TMs are found, I see no problem with it.

Also, thanks for understanding.

I know my rule on the subject is a little unorthodox, but you have to keep in mind that before I took over, there was no trading or hacking AT ALL unless you met the no Pokemon before 3rd gym rule. The way I see it, if you're limited to one type, you should be free to use every Pokemon of that type within the dex. The reason that I want you to trade it specifically, is because it means you would be using one naturally generated, and one that definitely matches your team's level, since you can only trade it in if it doesn't exceed the level your team is at. You are using a Pokemon from that version exclusive. I simply wanted to add a way to make all Pokemon available without ruining the integrity of the challenge, which is an inherently strict challenge to begin with.

I understand your reasoning now, thanks for the explanation. I won't be using it, but its a good rule to have around

Yay, training for my new team members is done, almost. Overall, in terms of stats and moves, my team is average. One thing I want to point out is, if you catch a Vulpix, prepare for a long training session, because Vulpix is in the slow exp. group. It seemed to take forever to train Pixxy from Lvl.15 to Lvl.20. Although it did take a little training, Pixxy defeated all train on Route 11(route east of Vermillion, in case any of you are wondering.). As soon as Pixxy reached Lvl.25(level of FlameNFame), then IN trained the both of them against remaining trainers left. Wow, I spent a solid 3 hours just training the both of them. When I grinded the both of them to usable levels, I went to battle Erika. I went and bought 2 fire stones, one for Pixxy, the other for FlameNFame, which I immediatly evolved into Flareon. Oh, I forgot to mention I obtained Fly, which I taught to spearow(HM slave). That is how I easily trained up at route 11. Anyway, Celadon gym wasn't hard, just plain annoying. Why, if I have fire types? Because in gen 1, wrap actually wouldn't allow you to attack for up to 5 turns. The grass types also exploited status moves, so they'd poison my pokemon and then use wrap on the following turn. Before facing Erika, I bought 3 super potions(stupid wrap/bind), antidotes(poisonpowder), paralyze heals(didn't know if Erika's pokemon knew stun spore), and awakings(sleeppowder). Overall, the battle was mostly Erika's pokemon using status moves/wrap/bind, and vileplume actually tried using Petal Dance. What an idiot. Anyway, FlameNFame swept the gym, even though it didn't learn ember until defeating Victrebel. Using only 1 super potion(wrap can be so annoying) and 2 antidotes, FlameNFame make some fried celery out of Erika. 4 badges down, 4 to go. That is where I saved and decided to type this. Oh, and another thing I didn't mention is that IS won't evolve Pixxy until it learns flamethrower and fire spin, which is like Lvl.43 or something like that. How am I doing in my fire monotype? Current party is: Slendy the Charizard(needs a new nickname) Lvl.40 with: Scratch, Mega Punch, Ember, and Slash; Pixxy the Vulpix Lvl.31 with: Ember, Confuse Ray, Dig, and Quick Attack; and FlameNFame the Flareon Lvl.31 with: Tackle, Sand-Attack(I'll be very glad to get rid of you), Quick Attack, and Ember. As always, any moveset suggestions are welcome, and before I finish this, I want to ask NecrumWarrior a question: When I beat Blue/Gary(rival's name) while he'w champion, am I allowed to extend my run to update a battle against Mewtwo? Been thinking about it while doing this run and decided to ask. Thanks to anyone who has been following this run, because I am pleased with my progress, and thanks to anyone who has helped with moveset suggestions, and thanks to NecrumWarrior for having this thread up, and good luck to anyone else attempting this challenge, and later, I'll have update #6. Forgot to say this was update #5, and I am capable of beating this game right now, but I am trying to enjoying myself as much as I can with this challenge. See you guys(and girls) later.

The difference: A single is where you go through one game with a type and ultimate is where you play a game for all five regions. Example: I'm doing a ultimate fire monotype playing the games Blue(kanto), Crystal(johto), Emerald(Hoenn), Platinum(sinnoh), and Black 2(Unova). You can ask the more experienced people here because Iny joined yesterday, but hopefully I cleared things up for you. Good luck.

Water Monotype Challenge - Update 2
FireRed | Marko


I know that this is so soon after my last update but a lot of things happened! First was the battle against Lt. Surge. To put it shortly, he was a pushover. The battle was far easier than I thought it was going to be. So after his defeat I made my way through Rock Tunnel and eventually into Celadon. During that time Peaches evolved into Blastoise! I opted out on Eevee because I will not be using Vaporeon (I've used Vaporeon before) so after defeating Team Rocket I went and fought Erika. Parahax was a pain in the butt and a bit bump in the road to defeating her, but I was still the victor. Went to Lavender Town and did the Pokemon Tower stuff, easily defeating my rival yadda yadda. Then went down to Fuchsia by the water route (after defeating the Snorlax of course), and after going into the Safari Zone for Surf HM and the Gold Teeth defeated Koga. That was also quite easy.

Now, after I defeated Koga it was finally time to go and get more members of my team. First I went to the Seaform Islands and first caught a Seel. However, while I was trying to work my way through I found a Dewgong so I decided to catch that one and use it on my team. I named him Frank. After going through the island I was at Cinnabar Island when I then revived my Helix Fossil into Neptune the Omanyte. Finally, I went and caught a decent level Tentacool and named him Poseidon. Now I'm currently trying to grind the three of them so they are at least level 40 or so before going to Saffron and doing everything there. This would be far easier if certain Pokemon didn't get poisoned every battle that involved a Poison Pokemon but what can you do. That said I haven't really messed with their movesets yet. Just trying to get 'em up there before I do.


Peaches (Wartortle) ♀ | Lonely | Level 45
Mega Punch, Surf, Bite, Rain Dance


Percy (Gyarados) ♂ | Naughty | Level 45
Twister, Strength, Bite, Hydro Pump


Frank (Dewgong) ♂ | Naive | Level 35
Sheer Cold, Icy Wind, Aurora Beam, Rest


Neptune (Omanyte) ♂ | Serious | Level 23
Constrict, Withdraw, Bite, Water Gun


Poseidon (Tentacool) ♂ | Quiet | Level 22
Poison Sting, Supersonic, Constrict, Acid

I ended up having to start over because i misread one of the rules... so i chose to use the randomizer again and it landed on Poison. I'll be dropping my Dark run for the time being... but i'll probably pick it up again after Poison is done

This is pretty accurate. It is of note that any single play through can be turned into an Ultimate if you want.

Firos and Aerith succeeded in achieving level 30.
I then proceeded to Celadon City and fought Erika for the Fourth Badge.
After defeating her Aerith and Firos were both level 32.
I then proceeded to acquiring Tea from the old lady, and then I began my quest to stop Team Rocket and acquiring the Silph Scope.
The Battle with Giovonni was difficult for Aerith and Firos, Aerith Fainted, but Firos pulled through and I obtained the Silph Scope, with both of them at level 34.
I then proceeded to Lavender town to try and resolve the issue with ghosts!
I saved Mr Fuji from team rocket with Aerith and Firos at level 36. I then proceeded to fight both of the lumbering pokemon on Route 8 and slumbering in Celadon City.
After Fighting both Snorlaxs and obtaining HM 02 Fly, I then proceeded down Biker's Road, around down Route 8 and 9 while leveling up both Firos and Aerith.
I then defeated Koga with Aerith at level 45, Firos at level 46, and Swarley at level 49.
I replaced my HM Slaves with Nidoking which I evolved from a Nidoran I caught in the Safari Zone using Rare Candy.
I then continued to Saffron City to challenge Sabrina, issues arose as Team Rocket took Silph Co. hostage.
I saved the President of Silph Co and was rewarded with a Masterball!
I then went to challenge Sabrina, after my fight with her, Aerith was level 51, while Firos and Swarley remained level 50. Aerith Evolved into an Arcanine and I now had my group of friends to fight the Elite Four, I just had to gain enough strength to defeat them.
Next on this path to victory was Blaine on Cinnabar Island.
Upon arriving to Cinnibar Island I discovered the gym was closed, so I decided to journey into the Old Mansion in hopes of finding a way to get inside.
After scouring all over I discovered the Secret Key and gained access to Blaines Gym, this was sure to be a firey battle!
Aerith and I ended up defeating all of Blaines pokemon, my next stop was back at Viridian City to the recently returned Gym Leader, I wonder who it could be?
Upon arriving to Viridian City it was Giovanni! The leader of team rocket, a gym leader? I fought him and his followers bravely and won, I then pursed my path to the Elite Four, all 8 badges in hand!
But for now, the journey ends for the night.

Current Game-Pokemon Fire Red.
Team-Arcanine(Aerith)-54,Charizard(Swarley)-54, and Flareon(Firos)-54.
Badges-8/8
Total Progress, going to train my Pokemon to level 70, then go challenge the Elite Four.

Update #6, and damn did it take forever. After defeating Erika, I decided to kick Team Rocket outta Celadon City. For the most part, it was easy to defeat everyone. The only person I had trouble with was obviously Giovanni. Pixxy processed to sweep Giovanni, and defeated Onix and Rhyhorn with dig. However, Kangaskhan decided to be a ***** and use 4 critical hit comet punches in one turn, knocking Pixxy out. FlameNFame finished what Pixxy couldn't and avenged Pixxy's fainting. Receiving the Silph Scope upon defeating Giovanni, I decided to go straight to Pokemon Tower to investigate the mystery of the hauntings. I defeated Gary there, a nice sweep going on by Pixxy, until Wartortle the ***** came to save the day. Pixxy seemed to want to keep missing dig, and fainted again. FlameNFame again finished the job for Pixxy and beat Gary. From there, my team and I proceeded to the top of Pokemon Tower, where Pixxy andFlameNFame kicked Rocket ass(problem Giovanni?). Decidedly, I took the long route to Fuchsia City, just for exp. points. Since my team almost reached Slendy's level, I decided to use him again. Yay, Slendy came back. During the training at Pokemon Tower, Pixxy actually learned flamethrower, which give him new potential. Overall, it took forever to reach Fuchsia City, and before I saved at Fuchsia City, I did something I won't regret: I taught Slendy Body Slam. How am I doing in my fire monotype? Current party is: Slendy the Charizard Lvl.42 with: Body Slam, Mega Punch, Ember, and Slash; Pixxy the Vulpix Lvl.39 with: Ember, Flamethrower, Dig, and Quick Attack; and FlameNFame the Flareon Lvl.40 with: Tackle, Bite, Quick Attack, Ember. Whew, tomorrow, I'll beat Koga, obtain Surf and Strength, beat Team Rocket out of Silph Co, and hopefully beat Sabrina as well. As always, any moveset suggestions are welcome, and good luck to anyone else attempting this challenge. See you tomorrow with a new update.

Update#1
Started the game and picked a Bulbasaur named Spaurz
Kicked my Rival's Flaming tale despite being a grass/poison.
*sigh* the first encounter in Viridian Forest is a Pikachu (if i weren't playing a monochallenge i'd have caught it AND used it)
Found a weedle female lvl 4 wewt -- now a party of 2 -- Beware my evil Poison Sting!
What?!? Female weedle is evolving at lvl 7! Yay Kakuna.
*sigh* another Pikachu that i can't use >.>;;
What?!? Female kakuna is evolving at lvl 10! yay BeeDrill
Finally leaving Viridian Forest with Beedril lvl 10 and Spaurz (Bulbasaur) lvl 11
Grinding to lvl 12~13 then challenging Brock.
BeeDrill's first poison sting poisoned Geodude who kept spamming defense curl and died of poison and fury attack.
Onix one shot my BeeDrill with Rock Tomb and then my Spaurz (Bulbasaur) one shot Onix with Vine whip.
The Bolderbadge is mine
Onwards!

Water Monotype Challenge - Update 3
FireRed | Marko


So during my last update I was busy grinding a few of my Pokemon. I also taught pretty much everyone Surf because who wants to wait for Hydro Pump or anything. During that time Poseidon evolved into a Tentacruel! Then I realized that my final member was at Silph Co. So I decided to simply take my team and while avoiding as many Rocket members as possible made my way to well... my rival first. As usual he was a piece of cake so after a quick victory I went and received Lapras. After naming him Tyson I went around facing all the Rockets for their experience and then took down Giovanni! During all of this Neptune had evolved into Omastar! So with six Water Pokemon at my disposable he was really easy. Then because I hate grinding gave Tyson all the rare candies I had bumping him from level 33 to 37 before going and grinding some more, using the mini-gym for a little training. Once everyone was at least level 43 or higher I finally went into Sabrina's gym to take her down! It had a few small bumps but it wasn't something we couldn't handle as victory became ours and we received the sixth badge. Now to Cinnabar island where I will probably try and grind a bit more before taking on Blaine. Little grinding here and there is better than massive grinding at the end, right? But my head is fuzzy and it's hard to look at my game for long periods of time so it might be a while. We'll see!

Alright, update #7 for me in Kanto, and everything is going smoothly. Arrival in a new city meant that I must take down the gym leader. In this case, it was Koga, master of poison types and a ninja. My team of overpowered fire types overwhelmed the ninja trainees. As for Koga, he put up a bit of a fight, but Pixxy easily swept his team with dig, and Weezing blew itself up with self-destruct, and it happened while using dig, so it missed, earning me the next gym badge. 5 down, 3 to go. Since I could learn surf now, I did the safari hunt stuff, ya no one cares. To cut to the chase, surf and strength were mine. During the safari hunt, I caught a krabby(HM slave) courtesy of super rod. I also taught Pixxy Toxic, so all I need to do is wait until Pixxy learns Fire Spin. With access to Cinnaber, I took the chance to catch my last two teammates. I easily caught Ponyta, nicknaming it Dash. Going to floor three, I ran into a Magmar with luck, caught it, nicknamed it Magma. With my last two teammates, I went to go grind them both on Cycle Road. I unlocked access to Saffron City to get Psychic for Magma. Magma and Dash have almost swept Cycle Road and that is where I'll leave off for now. How am I doing in my fire monotype? Current party is: Slendy the Charizard Lvl.44 with; Body Slam, Mega Punch, Ember, and Slash; Pixxy the Vulpix Lvl. 41 with: Ember, Flamethrower, Dig, and Toxic; FlameNFame the Flareon Lvl.41 with: Tackle, Bite, Ember, and Quick Attack;Dash the Ponyta Lvl. 37 with: Ember, Tail Whip, Stomp, and Double Team; and Magma the Magmar Lvl.36 with: Ember, Psychic, and Leer. Finally my team is finished, and for some reason they all know Ember(XD). Any moveset suggestions are always welcome, and as always, good luck to anyone attempting this challenge, and see you later with a new update while I grind Magma and Dash.
