    Gotcha. Thanks for the heads up. I was going to get around to researching that (I'm unfortunately still not as familiar with Gen V as I'd like to be.) so I could start playing through it. I think I'll definitely be doing White 2 instead so there are more options.
    And I'm not big on cheat codes. lol If I do any challenges in the future that will require them then that's fine but I like to play the games as they are. :)

    Eh...to unlock Challenge Mode requires stupid and complex requirements that are unanimously hated (long story, look it up). But if you don't mind using a cheating device you can skip that, or if you're playing on a ROM you'd have to use a cheat code which you can most likely just look up. And yeah, Audino makes leveling up in Gen V much easier and more convenient, which is good.
    As I mentioned, BW only has Drilbur, Tympole and Sandile until you reach Icirrus City when you can get Stunfisk, then Golett after beating Brycen. B2W2 has Sandile, Drilbur, Onix, Trapinch, Sandshrew, Baltoy, Numel (W2 only), Gligar, Piloswine and Golurk, in that order. For BW you'll only really have the past gen ones for the new Elite Four and Alder, and Cynthia and Morimoto.

    Ah. Yeah I hadn't even looked into which Pokemon may be available early in the game. I might have to change then. The idea of only using a few for the majority of the game doesn't sit well with me. lol
    I always found some games are really easy to keep my team up to level in and others I have a really hard time not being under leveled without a lot of grinding (like the Johto games.. ugh) I haven't played B2W2 in challenge mode. Is it not available if you play on a ROM? I never checked into that.. I'm actually waiting on a copy of White 2 to be delivered so I can actually play it without feeling guilty for not having purchased it first. lol

    Yeah, I was considering doing Black instead of White 2, but ultimately settled on the latter because the former only has three Pokémon for the first six badges or so. That and I had access to Challenge Mode (I don't know if you use ROMs, but I don't for the DS games, I used VBA for LeafGreen and Ruby). So far it hasn't been as easy as I thought it would be, but i've been underleveled throughout most of it. Though White might have a few challenging opponents (though if you had an Excadrill with Sand Rush, X-Scissor and Swords Dance, you can easily say screw you to Ghetsis' Hydreigon).
    And i'm posting Platinum more in-depth on the Marriland forums (the main place I hang out at), with screenshots (albeit iffy ones taken from an iPhone) and more detail. I know one person there was doing a Ground Monotype on Black and he stopped because he said it got too easy after he got the Lucky Egg.

    I keep wondering if I should go with White 2 instead of White due to there being more Pokemon available in those games. But I kind of want a little bit of a challenge too, so idk. What do you think?
    I was thinking about doing an LP of Platinum on YouTube but I can't get my computer to record my voice and the game sound at the same time so I pitched that idea in favor of just getting the challenge done. lol Where else are you posting updates at?

    Mine's going quite well. I'm almost done White 2 and have recently started Platinum. I did Ruby, LeafGreen, SoulSilver and White 2 instead of the ones you did, in comparison. And i'm also documenting Platinum on another forum.

    You're very welcome! ^^
    Yes, I am. It hasn't been going too bad (if only I would stop getting distracted by other things lol).
    How is yours going?

    Thanks for friending me! =) So you're doing Ultimate Monotype for Ground, also, it looks like.
