Hi I'm kirax7's brother!
Since, i didn't want to create another account so i just post with this

I want to start an Ultimate Monotype Challenge, maybe Steel, can i infringe the rule about Legendary? Of course, the Legendary avaible in game with Stats <= 600 and only one at team.
Since if Slaking (bad 640 xD), Dragonite, Garchomp, Hydreigon, Salamance, Metagross, Tyranitar (600) are fine, maybe the Legendary Birds, Beasts, Golems, Guardians, Musketeers + Thundurus/Tornadus(580) should be fine too. Or not? xD

Sorry, this rule has been in place for every version of the Monotype challenge. If you want to post here, you can't use any Legendary Pokemon.

After writing up a great final entry for my Black 2 Steel monotype, my browser decided to refresh and I lost it. So I'll keep it short since I don't feel like recreating my post. I picked up in Lentimas town and earned my final two gym badges and made it through Victory Road, catching two team members along the way: Bisharp and Metagross. My team at this point was level 59-60, bar Metagross who I had yet to use. Since I had to grind Metagross I decided to go ahead and bring the whole team up to level 62. Then I proceeded to the easiest E4/Champion endgame I've ever experienced in a Pokemon game. Metagross swept through Marshall, while Bisharp did the same to both Caitlin and Shauntaul. Next, Lucario did similarity with Grimsley's dark types. Then I moved from the extremely easy elite 4 to an equally easy champion. Lucario quickly and easily took care of Iris' Hydreigon, Druddigon, and Aggron before succumbing to Haxorus. Then Excadrill finished off Haxorus, and Magnezone took care of Lapras and Archeops. Only having to use 2 healing items and only having one Pokemon faint, this was definitely the easiest endgame I've had. I would order my team in order of usefulness as follows: Lucario, Metagross, Bisharp, Magnezone, Excadrill, and Probopass. I was pretty surprised by Bisharp, and unimpressed with my Excadrill (which just didn't match up to the Excadrill's I've used in previous playthroughs). I was also pleasantly surprised by Probopass, who, though she didn't get used once in the Elite 4, was surprisingly useful in general.

Black 2 Team:
Lucario / lv63 / Close Combat, Dragon Pulse, Bone Rush, Aura Sphere
Magnezone / lv62 / Discharge, Magnet Bomb, Flash Cannon, Thunderbolt
Excadrill / lv62 / Earthquake, Rock Slide, Strength, Metal Claw
Probopass / lv62 / Thunderbolt, Power Gem, Earth Power, Rock Slide
Bisharp / lv63 / Slash, Assurance, Iron Head, Night Slash
Metagross / lv63 / Psychic, Meteor Mash, Iron Defense, Hyper Beam

  • Kangaskhan beat up everyone in the Azalea Gym, including Bugsy by spamming Mega Punch.
  • Obtained the Cut HM in Ilex Forest, and taught cut to Chikorita.

  • Near the end of the many hours it took to ev train Tauros, I ran into a shiny Magnemite! I caught it first try by just hurling a great ball. A shame I can't use it in this run, especially when every other Pokemon on that route is a normal type, but any shiny is a good thing.
  • Tauros is fully Ev trained, and is at level 39!
  • Beat up Carlos again with Kangaskhan so he be within the restrictions of party members being ten levels apart.

  • Left the lighthouse and surfed towards Cianwood, fighting a few trainers and any wild tentacruels I came across.

  • Obtained fly and flew back to olivine to give ampharos the secret potion.
  • Flew back to Cianwood to go to the safari zone and catch a Geodude for Baoba. (gonna need the Safari Zone during Kanto)
  • Fought Jasmine with a tagteam of Kangaroo beating up the Magnemites with Drain Punch, and Tauros beating up Steelix with Surf.

I haven't even started my bug run yet (but i'm going to in like 1 min lol) but instead of hacking caterpie I will prolly use a scizor instead. I have actually never used a scizor before and I guess now is a good time to try I think I will try to use it as my main. I will bring him/her (whatever I happen find first) at lvl 1.

The Monotype Birthday event has now ended!
Any attempts to redeem the birthday code will not be allowed. Anyone who did use it this week, is free to continue using the Pokemon they hacked or traded in.

On a related note...

THIS IS MY 1000th POST! A large amount of my post count has been from maintaining this thread, so this seemed an appropriate place to post. I love this challenge, and all of you are awesome for continuing to support it. Thanks a million! Sadly, I have no event to give you since we just ended one. But you guys can push this thread all the way to 5000, I'll be sure to give y'all something nice!

Heartgold Normal Mono-Type update!

  • Accidentally K.Oed the red Gyarados, and forgot to save in front of it. Thankfully I still had a Wooper from the Pokewalker to use as an HM Slave later.
  • Got rid of Team Rocket in Mahogony. Captured all three Electrode that were powering the transmitter to make Lance look bad, and fit the theme of the game of the main character being a cut above the rest in terms of caring for Pokemon.
  • Beat up Pryce with Kangaroo and Tauros working together.
  • Did all the Team Rocket stuff in Goldenrod. I always liked the Gold/Silver Team Rocket stuff due to the great music attached to them.
  • Caught sandshrew at the safari zone as my second test.
  • Traversed through Ice Path.
  • Arrived in blackthorne and easily wiped out the gym by spaming Kangaroo's Outrage. Got a lucky critical hit with Outrage on Kingdra knocking it out in one hit.
  • Passed the dragon's den test and obtained the final badge!
  • Got the Master Ball from Elm, and went to fight the Kimono girls.
    After fighting them, I climbed Bell Tower and caught Ho-Oh with the Master Ball. Now I can fly in style rather than on a pidgey!
  • Obtained the Earthquake TM in Victory Road and taught it to Tauros.
  • Easily beat up Carlos.
The Elite Four Begins!


  • Will caused a surprising amount of trouble. Kangaroo's Crunch attack did a lot of the talking, but Tauros had to help out a few times.
  • Koga was a pain in the neck with his stupid cheap moves. No wonder he became an elite four, because he's a wimpy little coward who disguises being a coward as strategy. What a creep. I hate this guy so blasted much, and he caused a ton of trouble for me during my yellow mono-colour kanto challenge too. His stupid stinkin' Muk with its minimize garbage, and of course I could never just HIT the dummy. EVENTUALLY Tauros took him out with Earthquake, even though it wasn't a onehit KO. Koga's a jerk and I hate him, and this was by far the hardest battle of the challenge for really stupid reasons.
  • Bruno went a LOT better, but I don't think I've ever had trouble with Bruno ever. Tauros wiped the floor with him by using Zen Headbutt and Surf.
  • Karen's Umbreon was the only Pokemon that cause any kind of trouble, but the battle overall went very well.
  • Lance was tricky, but still nowhere near as hard as Koga was. Kangaroo and Tauros really worked as a team here. Kangaroo's Outrage really helped with those three Dragonites, but Tauros had to get involved with all of those Dragonite battles. A few Max Revives were used during this fight.
Screenshot:

Spoiler:



  • Did the fast ship stuff
  • Beat Up Surge with Tauros' Earthquake no problem.
  • Obtained forest items at the safari zone, which aren't the items I needed sadly.
  • Am now waiting for Baoba to call and give me the Safari Zone items I need. Sadly I can't find any info on when that might be. :/
And Now you're Caught up to where I left off!

Monobug Update: 1

Note: So after doing some research and talking to some friends I was told that scizor is crazy OP so I in the end last night went with a caterpie instead of scizor.

- Did tutorial...
- Caught first weedle I found: Female and quirky nature. Kinda disappointing nature but meh I'm not min maxing so I don't care and weedle is still cute regardless :3
- Caught first Caterpie: Female and naughty. Again not so impressive nature higher attack is kinda pointless on butterfree and lower special defence is kinda a blow.
- Grinded my way through all the trainers with in the first badge area. While at the bellsprout tower right before fighting the elder both my buggies evolved into their 3rd evo. (So butterfree and Beedrill)
- Beat down the elder and then grinded in the route with union cave the small patch of grass before the miracle seed guy. Grinded both to Lvl 12.
- cleared gym and beat falkner it was a bit of a struggle. Beedrill beat pidgey but got taken out by pidgeotto so then I sent out Butterfree and finished him off with sleep and confusion.
- Cleared my way too Azalea and then saved.

Team

Level: 15| Female | Quirky | Swarm

Just a minor update despite doing one kind of recently because I'm excited to talk about this one. :3

My whole goal right after the elite four was to catch Zangoose and an Ice Beam using Porygon 2. I was trying out voltorb flip and just kind of BSing my way to get low amounts of coins incredibly slowly. During that time I got multiple Safari Zone calls in which I was able to go catch Zangoose.

After that I went back to Voltorb Flip and really tried to learn how to play it correctly. Fortunately I did eventually learn how to play it. Unfortunatley I got horribly addicted to it and literally played it all day long. XD However it did result in me meeting my goal, despite never being able to beat Lv. 6 of Voltorb Flip. Here are a few photos.

Spoiler:


When I went to buy Porygon I just happened to have EXACTLY 9999 coins. Funny thing is I didn't expect to ever get this many coins since at first I didn't even really know how to play Voltorb Flip. (And yes, I'm going to be naming my character Julie in every Normal type run)

Spoiler:

Porygon2 and I buying TM13 at the Game Corner! I know I could have gotten Ice Beam later at Seafoam, but I was still horribly addicted to playing Voltorb Flip, and thought I'd go for it. XD I think I've got the game out of my system now that I bought Ice Beam and I'd have to work for so long to get anything else. (Though I'm tempted to get the Wide Lens for Tauros so his Zen Headbutt won't miss as much)

Spoiler:

It quite literally took all day, but I can now say "Porygon2 learned Ice Beam". Now I get to go back to ev training it. >__>

Dark Update (I lost count): Emerald 8/8 + Black 2 3/8

I beat Emerald, I couldn't get the GBA Emulator on my phone to work, but at least I can transfer save files over for VBA. :D
Cacturne was definitely the most helpful against Wallace, I just Needle Arm'd everything.
Here are the pics
Spoiler:


I have 3 badges in Black 2, but I'm waiting until I'm finished to take pictures, so expect some soon.
