View Full Version : Mono for R/S/E

May 11th, 2009, 2:39 AM
Hello all! I'm a new user here. This is my first thread in the pokecommunity, so...

Ok. I guess I got the idea from the gamefaqs ruby board. (And I think a thread somewhere below me, but that was for the FR/LG versions so..) Don't worry I got the permission to use this R/S/E mono-type challenge. I also got a permission for the idea. So the rules:

-The run is finished after the Elite 4.
-HM Slaves can be of any type.
-Only one type is allowed (duh?)
-The type should be acquirable before the first gym.
-if a pokemon is dual typed, it is categorized to both types. (e.g. Blaziken is Fire-Fighting, therefore it can be used in both types.)
-We can catch other pokemon but not to be used in the team. Only for the pokedex data.
-We must never skip gyms.
-If a pokemon evolves to that type we can use that. (e.g. A water evolves to a ground type)
-No legendaries, AR, Gameshark, or any other form of cheating. -anybody can do any of the types.
-no trading for other pokemon, except for evo-by-trade pokemon.

i will be doing the bug type in ruby. After I finished my FR mono challenge.

Actually, I think I'm going to do Grass instead. There aren't many good Fighting-types in Sapphire...

May 23rd, 2009, 8:25 PM
Can i do fire type? or maybe ground/bug since bug is already finished

May 24th, 2009, 1:21 AM

First log! Sorry it's so long, the whole thing was boring so I added lots of details. :P

1. Cliche Beginning

I restarted a new game. After skimming Professor Birch's boring speech, I chose the female trainer and named myself Yurika. Seriously, what kind of horrible mother sticks her child inside the van with all the furniture? Anyway, I hopped out of the van and listened boredly to Mom's talk. Which Yurika has heard many times in her past lifes. After going into the tiny, tiny house and seeing the tiny, tiny, tiny room, I set the yucky pink clock to the right time. Mom barged into my room without knocking--oh, wait, my room doesn't have a door--she told me to go check out my desk. So I did. I went on the PC and withdrew a super-mega-ultra-secret Potion. Then I went downstairs. Mom hurriedly called me over to watch some dumb TV show. For some reason, I did. I must be like Ella in Ella Enchanted. Cursed by a fairy. I also decided that I was probably mute. So, Mom ordered me to go visit the neighbors, so I did, because of the fairy's mute curse.

I barged into the house next door without knocking, like Mom taught me to, and a strange woman wearing a blue vest and a PINK skirt attacked me. She left me alone after I stared at her. I went upstairs and arrived in some guy's bedroom. I tapped the boy in the corner, who I assume is deaf, and he started blabbing about boring stuff. It turns out he is pretty sexist. He thinks that Gym Leaders' families must be all male. Yuck. I noticed that he has white hair and a pink bed. Spooky. As I leave the house, I realize that my Mom probably sleeps under the kitchen table. Really, why did she buy a house with one room? Oh well, lucky me. So I was walking around when this blue-haired squirt (wth?) told me that he could hear cries. Curious, I went to see what was happening and saw a fat man in a white labcoat being chased by a dog.

The man, who happened to be Professor Birch, told me to help him. I tried to go away, but he wouldn't let me. Darn it. I had to help him. It must be because of the fairy's curse. So I walked to the random basket and picked Torchic as my starter. Why? Because then my rival will pick Mudkip, that's why. Yes, I'm that evil. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAahem. Right. Anyway, I beat up the poor little puppy (damn you, curse!) and the Professor invited me to his big lab. Which is actually not much bigger than a normal house. Most of it is empty space in the walls. That's why it looks big from the outside and tiny from the inside. So, to thank me for beating up the puppy, the Professor gave me the Torchic. Yay. Then he ordered me to go see Brendan. Darn. So I went. Luckily, I didn't meet any wild Pokemon on the way. I tapped the man-woman in Oldale Town and he-she gave me another Potion. Yay.

So I went up north and met Brendan. I fought him and defeated his Mudkip(MWAHAH-ahem...) with four Scratch's. That was easy. So he told me to come to his father's lab. I had to, of course, because I was cursed. So I went back to Littleroot Town and into the lab. Then my body started moving on its own. It was pretty creepy. It was like I was being possessed. But I'm sure it was just because of the curse. So Professor Birch just talked Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and gave me a Pokedex. Then Brendan gave me five Pokeballs. Yippee. I could finally leave. Along the way, Mom gave me a pair of Running Shoes. Finally! I ran all the way to the route next to Oldale Town and caught myself a Lotad. After that, I went to the Pokemon Center and healed my Pokemon. I deposited my Torchic into the PC.

I saved the game.

Pokemon Team:

Lotad lvl. 3
Gender: Male
Ability: Swift Swim
Moves: Astonish - Growl

Okay, so, I had this Poison-type Monotype Challenge run going on in another R/S Monotype thread, but it's been dead for more than a month, so... T_T I can't post my update there. It stinks I couldn't finish it there... I could, but I don't wanna risk getting chewed out or worse...

Mind if I just continue my Poison type run here? I'll post all of my previous posts from the other thread here in Spoilers, so if you're curious of my progress, you can see from there. Then, I'll just normally post. However, I'm going to check for rules on both threads. I started over there, so if there are other rules there that aren't here, I'll note them and let you all know.


That is, of course, if you let me continue, Crobat. D:


Well, if in the next few days someone doesn't post, I'm just going to remake the old thread I used to visit. To be completely honest, I intended to do that in the first place, but saw this thread and... yeah.

I have finished, it took days of grinding two pokemon to a unbeatable level, although the amount of full restorer's i bought before the elite four proved very usefull (23 full restores)

Now for my winning team

Absol lv 82 Void
shock wave
aerial ace
shadow ball
ice beam
(took allot of time to find shadow ball and ice beam)

sableye lv 80 night

brick break
shadow ball
calm mind
confuse ray

You get the best feeling inside of yourself when a salamance faints because it " hurt istself in in ist's confusion.
remember to sign me up as having completed this challenge, good luck to the rest of you and to 11 wildy i have this advice for you'r challenge, Absol has alot of very usefull and damaging moves from TM like thunderbolt and ice beam
