Well I DID type up a really detailed update, but Pokecommunity had one of its patented crashes that erases your whole post, so I'll have to give an abridged version since I'm not typing all that stuff up again.

Normal Type Platinum Challenge update.
  • Battled through Eterna Forest
  • Lost to Gardenia, and had to level grind. (Didn't want to cop out and train Starly)
  • Raised Buneary's happiness a bit, and spent time underground grinding items since I'll eventually need lots of shards.
  • Taught Buneary Return, and beat Gardenia after a few failed attempts
  • Withdrew my old Bibarel and taught it Cut
  • Beat up Team Galactic and got the Up-Grade
  • Arrived in Hearthorme and went to the gym.
  • Had a tough time fighting the regular trainers since they used bullcrud moves, and all I could do was use Buneary's Foresight/Return, and Aipom's Astonish.
  • Buneary evolves into Lopunny!
  • Beat Fantina with very few problems.
  • Taught Aipom Shadow Claw.
  • Ran into Barry/Retard, and had some trouble with his Double Team spamming Staravia. Had to actually send out Bibarel to take advantage of his Unaware ability so I could actually hit the dang thing.
  • Decided to use the vs seeker to level grind. Found a bug catcher with a Krikitune and Dustox witch spewed tons of exp, and great evs for Lopunny and Aipom.
  • While level grinding, Aipom evolves into Ambipom!
  • Caught a Clefairy in Mt. Coronett, trained it until it learned wake up slap, evolved it with the Moon Stone I found underground, then ultimately abandoned it since it wouldn't be worth it.
  • Got the Defog HM in the Solaceon Ruins.
  • Went to the route above Solaceon to catch a fly/defog staravia slave, and instead found a Noctowl!
  • Captured the Noctowl and decided to make it a party member instead of an HM Slave. Named it Cedric after the stupid owl from King's Quest 5.
  • Arrived in veilstone and got a free Porygon from some guy in a house. Decided to take it along with me. Nicknamed it Wall.E
  • Used the upgrade to evolve Porygon.
  • Fought Maylene and won with Porygon2's Psybeam, Noctowl's Air Slash, and Lopunny's Jump Kick. (which 1HitKOed Lucario thanks to a Critical Hit)
  • Got the Fly HM
And now you're caught up to where I left off.

So... how does one go about doing a ghost monotype in soul silver? Isn't there only like 1 ghost pokemon for like 90% of the game (ghastly)?

Okay, let's see if I can finish my WATER monotype challenge on firered today!

I just got to the Indigo Plateau. Took my Lapras out of the box (untrained, LOL), to replace the spearow that was flying me around Kanto.

My team: Kabutops, Seadra, Blastoise, Gyarados, Vaporeon and Lapras

-First E4 fight! Kabutops VS Dewgong. Two Rock Slides and Dewgong died. Surf put my Kabutops to 50% HP. Managed to beat Cloyster with Kabutops as well. I had nothing against Slowbro, so he killed my Kabutops and Seadra Basically, Lore-something did a lot of damage to my super flawed team.
I decided I'd go against Bruno with just Vaporeon and Lapras, if I can't win the fight, at least I'd get Vaporeon some experience. But I managed to beat them all.
Proceeding to fight against Agatha with the same principle: Levelling up. I don't care much for the money loss, because I've already spent it all on restoration items. Managed to beat Agatha as well - wow, my Vaporeon is powerful! I used some potions though.
Lol, beat Lance as well. Thanks to Acid Armor and Aurora Beam xD And a Full restore.

Since I'm only one opponent left, I decided to heal up my pokemon (I hate using potions and revives!). Everytime I fought Green I beat him easily, let's see how it goes this time.

My Kabutops beat Green's Pidgeot. Switched to my Rock Star, Vaporeon and bulked him up with Acid Armor. Took some of Rhydon's Earthquakes and only dropped to 50%. One hydro pump was enough to put him out. The he sent out Venasaur, which is suppsedly the biggest threat against my WATER team. But I have Aurora Beam, so that's what I use next. He absorbs some sunlight, so I use a max potion thinking I could handle it... I dropped to 1 HP and used another Max Potion.
He absorbed sunlight again, so I switched out to Lapras because she's a weakling.
Switched to Gyarados next and upped his speed and attack with Dragon Dance, not that I have anything good against Venasaur but... He used Growth, Sunny Day and Solarbeam... Needless to say what happened to Gyarados. why didn't I think of this earlier?! My blastoise knows rain dance and protect! Mighty weapon against solar beams Protect made Venasaur lose all his Solar beam PP, because he was only using growth now.
His Alakazam finished most of my pokémon, leaving only my rock star, which beat her with Water Pulse. Bulked up against Gyarados and finished Arcanine with a Hydro Pump.



I finished my WATER monotype on FireRed. Soon I might start a new one (:

Unfortunately, you pretty much have to use Gastly. However, if you start now, you can take advantage of this, and get another ghost type for your run.

Yeah I'm doing a grass mono run now I have 6 badges now. I was interested in doing a ghost run after my grass one but having just ghastly would be pretty boring. So I might do water or electric next instead which is a shame since I do like ghost type but they are far too rare.

Water Monotype Challenge - Final Update
FireRed | Marko


Okay so I finished this challenge while I was on vacation! To put it shortly, Blaine and Giovanni were both a piece of cake as my team was pack full of Water Pokemon. After defeating Giovanni I made my way towards Victory Road, defeating Polo easily as well. The road towards Victory Road wasn't too difficult either. In fact, after I went through Victory Road I decided that I didn't want to spend a bunch of time grinding my Pokemon to better levels, so I stocked up big time on items and just went on it. First battle went okay, so I went to the second battle, and each time I had decided 'oh okay this isn't too bad' until Lance where I had finally saved. With the help of Ice Beam/Blizzard Lance was a piece of cake and the Champion battle wasn't too difficult either. I don't remember the details, but I will say that Tyson the Lapras was definitely my MVP through the league! So yeah, this was a really fun challenge and I had finally defeated the Kanto Elite Four! My final team is below; I currently am doing another challenge on my Fire Red now, but maybe once I am done with that or something I will try for another Monotype. See you all then!


Peaches (Blastoise) ♀ | Lonely | Level 52
Mega Punch, Surf, Brick Break, Rain Dance


Percy (Gyarados) ♂ | Naughty | Level 51
Dragon Dance, Strength, Earthquake, Hydro Pump


Frank (Dewgong) ♂ | Naive | Level 51
Sheer Cold, Take Down, Ice Beam, Surf


Neptune (Omastar) ♂ | Serious | Level 50
Surf, Bite, Mud Shot, Blizzard


Poseidon (Tentacruel) ♂ | Quiet | Level 51
Toxic, Surf, Giga Drain, Barrier


Tyson (Lapras) ♂ | Mild | Level 52
Surf, Body Slam, Ice Beam, Perish Song

I will use the birthday code for Omanyte in HG/SS
Pokemon Firered Mono-Water final update:
So, Giovanni was pretty easy considering My whole team was consisted of Water types. After that I went to fight Blue on Route 22, who was pretty hard to deal with, because I forgot to heal, from the gym leader fight. (Silly me!) Then I got through the puzzling and confusing Victory road puzzles, and fought all of the hard trainers. (I'm not very good at games) So then I went to the elite 4 completely unprepared with all of my pokemon as they were all only lvl. 47-48. I fought the elite 4 and the pokemon that gave me trouble were Jynx Machamp Dragonite and Gyarados , after that I fought Blue and I took his first 5 down pretty easily but they fainted all of my pokemon besides Blastoise then it was a 1 on 1 match Aqui vs. Gyarados Gyarados kept thrashing while I kept using Strength with Blastoise since Gyarados resisted everything I had we both kept using Hyper potions and Full restores to restore HP. then Blue finally ran out of Full restores, and I beat him!
Final team: Blastoise (F) Gyarados (F) Vaporeon (F) Poliwrath (M) Lapras (M)
-------------------------------------------------
After storing her pokemon at Oaks Ranch, Misty decided to go to the Near region of Johto to start another Adventure to conquer the Johto league
(Is it ok if I dont use my starter pokemon in HG/SS? I've used Totodile alot.)

Grass monotypeSS Update: 3

- I won 3000 points at the pokeathlon and bought a leaf stone and evolved gloom to Vileplume.

- ventured to the burned tower and smacked down Silver and then challenged the fire breather.

- helped the dancer and got surf then healed up at a pokecenter.

- cleared out morty's Gym then challenged him. I basically used a mixture of Vileplume, Bellossom,

and Weepinbell and spammed nonstop sleep and mega drain till I won. It was a close battle I lost

Vileplume and weepinbell but won with Bellossom in the end with critically low health.

- Healed up and venture to olivine city.

- Caught a krabby for a surf slave LVL 20 then surfed to the fighting Gym city

- At the city I went north and ran into the water legendary and that random guy (lol) challenged me

to a fight I won.

- Healed up and cleared out the fighting Gym then challenged the Gym Leader. I used only Vileplume

and Bellossom, I put both of his pokemon to sleep (Primeape/Poliwrath). After they fell asleep I

spammed a mix of mega drain/magic leaf till I won probably the easiest Gym yet.

- Went back to olivine and cleared to the Lighthouse then traveled back to cianwood again to get the

medicine.... then traveled back again and healed the pokemon in the lighthouse then I went to the

safari and captured a fearow to use a fly slave. ( I only bring him out of the box to fly then I

deposit him again)

- Flew back to Olivine and challenged the Gym Leader. Again as with all the other badges I just spam

sleep and mega drain/magic leaf another easy Gym.

- Traveled to the 7th Gym city and fainted the Shiny Gyarados. (sorry don't like gyarados hes pretty

ugly ROFL)

- Battled my way through the Team Rocket hideout then challenged the ICE Gym Leader. As usual he was

rather easy b/c his pokemon were either ground or water so I just used sleep and mega drain.

- healed, saved, then wrote this update.

Platinum Normal Type Update!
Spoiler:

  • Spent a long time training and grinding the slots to get a LickyLicky with GyroBall! After the huge time investment in getting everything, he turned out to be completely worthless and I dumped him from my team, along with Noctowl who was downgraded to an HMSlave.
  • Fought the Pastora Gym and easily won.
  • Fought Byron at the Canavale gym and won after a really close match. Porygon 2's Discharge saved my skin.
  • Decided to ditch Lopunny as she wasn't too useful anymore, and aimed to finish the game with Porgyon Z and Ambipom.
  • After a bit of sidequesting, I got enough blue shards to teach Ambipom Fire Punch! Now I didn't have to worry about losing Lopunny's jump Kick which was previously my only super effective move against steel types.
  • Lots of dull Team Galactic stuff
  • Arrived in Snowpoint and used Ambipom's Fire Punch to breeze through the gym. Candice's dialogue always makes me think she would be a pretty cool and fun person in reality.
  • More Team Galactic nonsense.
  • At long last! The Dubious Disc! Porygon 2 evolves into Porygon Z!
  • Sold a ton of items so I could buy an Ice Beam TM at the game corner, and teach it to Porygon Z.
  • MORE Team Galactic nonsense! Apparently Cyrus's whole plan is based upon "I'm perfect and everyone else is flawed and a stupidhead, therefore I'm gonna make my own private club... no, a whole WORLD only for me! TEE HEE HEE HEE HEE!"
  • Entered the Distortion World. Get comfy, you're gonna get a good nap while you slog through this monotony.
  • Porygon Z and Ambipom shut down Cyrus' idiocy and he runs off in a tizzy because Cynthia called him out on being a complete idiot.
  • Tossed the Master Ball at Giratina cause after all that Team Galactic stuff, I'm not gonna waste ten hours trying to catch a legendary with a capture rate of 3 with Ultra balls.
  • Left the Distortion World, chatted with Rowan who should really be arrested for getting a kid involved in this mess, and we finally end the ten hour Team Galactic garbage that's a horrible black eye on an otherwise great Pokemon game.
  • Used the star pieces and shards I had collected to teach Ambipom Ice Punch!

EDIT: FINAL END OF GAME UPDATE!

  • Beat up Volkner and earned my final badge!
  • withdrew my starter Piplup and taught it waterfall. (Since Bibarel had all its HM slots filled)
  • Slogged through Victory Road
  • Fought Barry for the last time, and sent him home!
  • Withdrew all my Normal type helpers that I had along the way. Sadly couldn't bring Clefable and the Chansey I caught with me since I can't take 8 Pokemon on my team, but they didn't really do anything anyways. I wanted to bring them all along since they all helped quite a lot at some point, and they deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. :3
  • Had a surprising amount of trouble at Arron. That Heracross was a pain in the butt, and his Drapion caught me off guard and nearly wiped out both Ambipom and Porygon Z. Was able to fight back and win.
  • Bertha didn't cause many problems. Porygon Z's Ice Beam did most of the talking.
  • Flint went incredibly well, better than I could have imagined. Got really lucky and had Porygon Z's Psybeam hit Infernape with a critical Hit. I think that saved my butt. XD
  • The Psychic guy SHOULDN'T have been difficult since Ambipom had Shadow Claw and Porygon Z had Signal Beam, but it was probably the hardest fight aside from Cynthia. Between the surprise Gallade, the Focus Blast Alakazam and the Bronzong which I could only really hit with Fire Punch, this was a difficult battle. It was actually Lopunny that delivered the finishing blow to Bronzong despite being horribly under-leveled.
  • The Champion Cynthia! Also known as the best Pokemon final boss ever! Had a lot of trouble with Spiritomb and Lucario, but after that things went pretty smoothly. Porygon Z did most of the talking during this fight, with Ice Beam 1HitKoing Garchomp, 2HitKoing Togekiss, and 2HitKoing Rosearade. Discharge took out Milotic in two hits, while Ambipom took out Lucario and Spiritomb with Fire Punch and Shadow Claw respectively.
I gotta say, I haven't played fourth gen since Platinum came out in 2009, and it was like re-discovering a masterpiece. Platinum is one heck of a good game, and Cynthia is such a great final boss that it really feels like the epic climactic showdown. Sinnoh is also pretty huge, and the whole game just feels big in its scope. Makes me wonder why I never played it again after the first time I played, cause I remember really liking Platinum the first time I played it too.



Anyhoo, end of game stuff.

So after a bunch of grinding in Mt. Silver, I managed to beat Red in my Gold playthrough. It took a bunch of revives, since he was about 10 levels stronger than me, but I managed to scrape by and take him out. Moving on to Sapphire.

Okay, so after beating Crasher Wake, it took me some time before finally getting to Canalave City to beat Byron - mostly because I went back to the area around Floaroma to fool around with honey trees and wait for Friday to come to catch myself a Drifloon. Eventually, I did catch myself a Modest Drifloon and even a Careful female Combee. I then grinded... A lot. Evolved them both in the process, then decided to move on, when everyone in my team was somewhere around level 40. Fast forward to me arriving in Canalave City, where I was met by my rival, Nemo. Just for ****s and giggles and to prove to everybody doubting the walling capacities of Vespiquen, I took down his entire team with Vespiquen alone. His Staraptor allowed me to set up no less than 6 Defend Orders, while the Toxic slowly killed it. Then, with her defenses set sky high, it was just a matter of poisoning the foe and wait it out. We then proceeded to train a bit more on Iron Island before we took on Byron. Byron was anti-climatic as ****. Gliscor set up one Swords Dance, then OHKOd all his Pokémon with Earthquake. Boring. With my 6th badge making every Pokémon up to level 70 obey me, though, Murkrow's attitude problems should finally be over for good.

Here's my team so far:

Spoiler:

Gliscor, lv. 47
Male // Careful // Hyper Cutter
- Rock Tomb
- Earthquake
- Fire Fang
- Swords Dance

Murkrow, lv. 45 @ Soothe Bell
Male // Adamant // Super Luck
- Taunt
- Return
- Fly
- Sucker Punch

Vespiquen, lv. 45 @ Honey
Female // Careful // Pressure
- Attack Order
- Heal Order
- Toxic
- Defend Order

Drifblim, lv. 45
Male // Modest // Unburden
- Shadow Ball
- Baton Pass
- Thunderbolt
- Stockpile

Staraptor, lv. 45 @ Shell Bell
Female // Jolly // Intimidate
- Aerial Ace
- Close Combat
- Return
- Roost


And oh yeah - happy birthday, Monotype Challenge! Not sure how or even if I want to exploit this - I'll save that decision for later

That really doesn't affect the actual gameplay, it just makes it easier for you to get something you can get already. I have no problem with you doing this.
