Sorry it's been so long since my last update, my DS got mixed up with my brother's stuff when we moved so I just got it back, but here goes. After defeating Morty I went back to Olivine and went through the lighthouse trashing the other trainers as I went. After speaking to Jasmine (my 4th favorite gym leader of all time) I surfed on over to Cianwood. I picked up the Mystery Potion and then trained my Pokémon for Chuck's gym including soundly defeating the Jr. Trainers and Esuine. I then fought Chuck. I had my Gengar Night Shade his Primeape into defeat before using Gloom's Mega Drain on his Poliwrath. Then I gave Jasmine the Mystery Potion before surfing back to Cianwood to train on the newly opened route. I am now preparing for Jasmine. Current team loadout: Level 31 Gengar, Level 31 Koffing, Level 31 Qwilfish, Level 31 Venomoth, Level 31 Crobat, Level 34 Gloom

Updated through post #2364.

A moment of your time, please. The update process is rather stressful at time, and I would like to point out the most irritating things I encounter while doing so.

1. People who don't post a sign up and just start posting updates. This is not too common, but it happens and I really don't like it because it often comes with the next point.

2. People who don't include the game they are playing in their post. Sometimes this isn't so bad, but I leave the Game open when I put people who sign up for Ultimate challenges on the list, so if you don't put what challeng you are playing at the time, I have to look back at that post to figure it out (unless the person did not sign up in which case it gives me a headache).

3. People who don't put their badge count or gyms beaten in an easy place to find. This usually is the case with posts that are just a long paragraph with no real structure to them.

Now, none of this breaks the rules, so don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to enforce anything. I just want you guys to think about your updates and how they come off to me when I have to go through all of them. I try to leave a good example of an effective update post for any new people who don't know what they should do, but even that is not required. Please, running this thread takes a lot of work, and anything you guys can do to streamline that for me would be greatly appreciated.

One more thing, I like to check in every day when I can, but it's easy to miss questions if they're in the middle of a post. If you want to ask a question about your challenge, put it at the beginning or end, or even highlight it in some way so it's noticeable. I'd hate for anyone to feel like they're being ignored.

Haven't updated in a while. I started playing Platinum but my progress has been slow due to a lot of distractions. But I have made progress so here's my first update for my Platinum Ground mono.

Started with Turtwig (Twigster). Pretty much went solo with him for a while and beat Roark. Twigster evolved into Grotle. Caught a Shellos (Gastro) and a Burmy (Cloaky) shortly after. Defeated Team Galactic at both Valley Windworks and at their base in Eterna City. Trained Cloaky up in Mt. Coronet to get her evolved into Wormadam with sub ground type. Defeated Gardenia very easily with Wormadam. Went through Route 206 and caught Gligar and caught Gible in Wayward Cave.

White 2 Ground Monotype, Update #2

Spoiler:
-Did some more training.
-Took on the trainers in the Gym, some of them were rather annoying.
-Tried to beat Burgh, but his Leavanny was too much for my team.
-Did some Magnemite hunting and stole a Metal Coat from one of them with Gharial's Thief.
-Traded Shandra to get her to evolve into Steelix.
-Challenged the Gym Leader, Burgh!

Castelia Gym overview:
Team entering the fight: Shandra LV24 / Hard Stone - Smack Down, Rock Polish, Stealth Rock, Rock Tomb
Gharial LV25 / Scope Lens - Bite, Sand-Attack, Torment, Thief
Marsupial LV24 / Amulet Coin - Dig, Return, Hone Claws, Metal Claw

He starts off with Dwebble while I open with Shandra. He uses Struggle Bug while I hit with Smack Down. Him: 62% or so HP, Me: 74/78 HP and -1 Sp Atk. He uses it again as I set up Stealth Rock. Me: 70/78 HP and -2 Sp Atk. He uses it again as I use Smack Down again, which activates his Sitrus Berry. Me: 66/78 HP and -3 Sp Atk, Him: 40% or so HP. He uses it again as I hit with Smack Down, and he barely lives. Him: 1 HP, Me: 62/78 HP and -4 Sp Atk. He uses his Hyper Potion, as I hit him with Rock Tomb. Him: 62% or so HP and -1 Speed. I use it again as he hits with Struggle Bug once more. Me: 58/78 HP and -5 Sp Atk. I finish him with Smack Down.
After that is Leavanny, who takes some damage from Stealth Rock. Him: 3/4 HP. He hits with GrassWhistle first turn as I snooze. He misses with Razor Leaf as I snooze again. He hits next turn, and gets a critical hit. Me: 36/78 HP and asleep. He misses again, but I wake up and miss with Rock Tomb. UGH! He hits with Razor Leaf as I hit with Rock Tomb, lowering his Speed, but activating his Sitrus Berry. Him: 70% or so HP, Me: 24/78 HP. He's still faster and uses Razor Leaf again, while I hit with Rock Tomb again. Him: 1/3 or so HP, Me: 12/78 HP. He's still faster and uses GrassWhistle (seriously?) which misses, while I almost kill him with Smack Down. Him: 1 HP. He kills me with Razor Leaf next turn, thankfully getting the critical hit on the turn that probably didn't matter. I send in Gharial and kill him with Bite. Whew! I gain the boost from Moxie, also. Gharial grows to Level 26 after that.
Following is Shelmet, who takes damage from Stealth Rock. Him: 3/4 HP. Bite does enough to kill him next turn, even after he's cursing at me. So I gain more Moxie.
Finally is Karrablast. Thanks to Stealth Rock and Moxie, I kill him in one hit with Bite, ending the battle.
Sorry for evolving Shandra into something with mondo Defense, but I really didn't have much else of an answer to this one. And even then it was still rather shaky. There was a bit of luck and stupid involved, too.

-Met with Colress in Central Plaza.
-Challenged him on Route 4, he was pretty easy.
-Got TM28 for Dig.
-Went to the Desert Resort to catch two new team members.
-Caught a Sandshrew in the Relic Castle named Vinny and a Trapinch in the Desert Resort named VampirMoth.
-Beat the trainers in the Desert Resort, the Relic Castle and Route 4.
-Went through Join Avenue and opened a Dojo.
-Arrived in Nimbasa City.
-Went to Elesa's Gym (including the old Gym) and beat all the trainers. They ain't got nothing on Ground-types.
-Challenged the Gym Leader, Elesa!

Nimbasa Gym overview:
Team entering the fight: Shandra LV26 - Smack Down, Rock Tomb, Dig, Stealth Rock
Vinny LV26 / Amulet Coin - Dig, Magnitude, Rock Tomb, Crush Claw
VampirMoth LV26 / Exp. Share - Dig, Bulldoze, Rock Slide, Mud-Slap
Marsupial LV26 / Soft Sand - Dig, Hone Claws, Return, Metal Claw
Gharial LV26 / Scope Lens - Dig, Bite, Sand-Attack, Thief

She starts off with Emolga while I open with Shandra. She uses Pursuit for like nothing while I use Smack Down and bring her to the ground. Her: 2/3 or so HP, Me: 81/84 HP. The Quick Claw activates, and since she's brought to the ground I can use Dig, hehe. She uses Aerial Ace twice and fails before I kill her.
After that is Zebstrika. She uses Flame Charge while I use Stealth Rock. Me: 61/84 HP. The Quick Claw activates, and I avoid a Flame Charge while burrowing underground. Then it activates again, unfortunately, and I hit her but her Sitrus Berry activates, then she hits me. Her: 2/3 or so HP and +2 Speed, Me: 43/84 HP. She uses Flame Charge again and I use Dig. Me: 27/84 HP. I then kill her. VampirMoth grows to Level 27 after that.
Following is Joltik. She takes damage from Stealth Rock. Her: 3/4 HP. And she kills me with Energy Ball. I send in Marsupial and am faster, so I use Dig, which nearly finishes her, but she uses Energy Ball. Her: 1/5 or so HP, Me: 11/73 HP. Since she's gonna heal and i'm faster, I use Return. And she does heal first. Her: 70% or so HP. I use Dig and avoid an Energy Ball, then hit, and she uses X-Scissor and kills me, getting the critical hit on the last turn, lol. Her: 10% or so HP. I bring in Vinny and kill her with Magnitude. And get a 10, of course on the useless turn.
Finally is her Flaaffy. She takes Stealth Rock damage, then I use Magnitude and get a 6, which does more than half. She uses Take Down and gets a critical hit, but I use Dig and finish her, ending the battle. Vinny grows to Level 27 after that.
I didn't think anyone expected that to be hard, but that was still a bit interesting. Getting to use Smack Down on a Flying-type then use Dig is always fun.

-Was walked out with Elesa and her group.
-Found Hugh quarreling with Team Plasma.
-Beat the grunts, then heard the story of Hugh's sister's Purrloin.


So here's my team:
Spoiler:
Sandile (M) "Gharial", Level 27
Nature: Careful
Ability: Moxie
Moves: Bite, Dig, Sand-Attack, Thief

Drilbur (M) "Marsupial", Level 26
Nature: Careful
Ability: Sand Force
Moves: Dig, Hone Claws, Metal Claw, Return

Steelix (F) "Shandra", Level 26
Nature: Naive
Ability: Sturdy
Moves: Dig, Rock Tomb, Smack Down, Stealth Rock

Sandslash (F) "Vinny", Level 27
Nature: Quirky
Moves: Crush Claw, Dig, Magnitude, Rock Tomb

La la la la. Oh, what? Oh right.
Finished the Water monotype on my LG. It went a lot faster now that school's started up (yes, shush). I had more trouble getting through Victory Road than through the E4. Still had to consume a good deal of drugs though. Heh, heh. I wonder what's running through their heads right now. As soon as I caught Starmie, I ditched Blastoise because well, ugh. I'm not much a fan of him until gen 4. Gen 3 Blastoise, bleh.

Final team:
Spoiler:
Modest Starmie, Lv. 51
Surf|Psychic|Thunderbolt|Recover

Bashful Gyarados Lv. 49
Strength|Earthquake|Bite|Twister

Quiet Tentacruel Lv. 50
Surf|Ice Beam|Giga Drain|Acid

Adamant Kabutops Lv. 49
Slash|Brick Break|Absorb|Dig

Mild Blastoise Lv. 39
Surf|Bite|Tackle|Withdraw

Water Type Ultimate Challenge - Kanto Complete!

So yeah, I've been playing Blue the past few weeks and I've completed the Kanto part of the challenge.
-I didn't waste time doing anything else besides going straight from Gym Leader to Gym Leader defeating them. I'm not going to post every single event that happened to me, because nothing out of an ordinary playthrough occurred. The only mildly interesting thing that happened was that I defeated the Elite Four and Blue on my first try. Anyway, here's my final Kanto team.

Spoiler:
Bloo
Lvl. 44
-Bite
-Fissure
-Blizzard
-Surf

Storm
Lvl. 47
-Body Slam
-Surf
-Thunderbolt
-Fire Blast

Sapphire
Lvl. 46
-Ice Beam
-Bite
-Quick Attack
-Surf

Shuriken
Lvl. 50
-Psychic
-Water Gun
-Tri Attack
-Surf


Hooray, I guess. That was an easy run. Now on to Johto! :)
