So I finally started the last part of my USC with Fireheart, aka Arcanine (At least till B/W comes out in US). Doing the Sinnoh region on Diamond.
Named self Cyrus, rival Zane as usual. Picked Piplup, named her Penny.
After the initial plot stuff I hacked in a Growlithe on Rt. 202, which is where it can be found with a dongle.
Also caught a couple HM slaves - Wings (Starly) and Derf (Bidoof). Boxed Wings and Penny as they won't be needed till later.
Made my way to Jubilife City, where I got a Town Map, TM 10 Hidden Power, and a Poketch.
Going east, Fireheart had his first battle against Zane.
Starly and Turtwig were no match for Fireheart's Bite and Ember.
Arrived at Oreburgh City, getting Rock Smash along the way, which I taught to Derp.
Found Roark in the Mine, and then taught Hidden Power to Fireheart - AMAZING! HP GROUND FTW!!!
Back in the gym, Fireheart took on Roark.
Armed with HP Ground, Fireheart OHKOed Geodude and Onix, then 2HKOed Cranidos.
Checked the power of Fireheart's HP Ground - it is 47, which ain't horrible.
In the second level of the Oreburgh Gate, I got Flash and caught a Psyduck named Pain, who was taught Flash immediately.
Arrived in Floarama Town after going through Lost Cave, and dealt with the Valley Windworks crisis.
Mars' Purugly was powerful, so after a Super Potion, Fireheart took it down with a crit Bite.
After healing up, I went north, and after beating a bunch of trainers, I ended up in Eterna Forest.
I took Cheryl through, not really grinding at all as Fireheart didn't need it.
Arrived in Eterna City and got Cut from Cynthia, which I taught to Derp.
Challenged the gym.
Fireheart OHKOed Gardenia's three minor grass-types with Flame Wheel, then 2HKOed Roserade for the win.
After that, I went up the the Galactic building and proceeded to wipe them out.
Jupiter's Skuntank got a crit with Night Slash, so I had to use a Super Potion, but Fireheart handled it easily, 3HKOing with HP Ground.
Got a Bike from the guy I saved, then took it down Cycling Road.
Dawn then showed up with early Christmas gifts - a VS Seeker and a Dowsing App for my Poketch.
Found the Revive on the ground, then healed up in Oreburgh.
Went underneath the bridge to Wayward Cave.
Led Mira out of the cave, fighting all the trainers in the process.
After emerging, I pressed on east, eventually meeting Cyrus in Mt. Coronet on the way to Hearthome City.
In Hearthome City, I helped out the judge, then talked to her again in the Contest Dome to unlock the routes out of Hearthome.
In the middle of the city, Zane came out of nowhere.
Fireheart has Fire Fang now, which made for easy pickings.
Saved and quit after the battle.
The next step is to go to Pastoria City by way of Soleceon Town and Veilstone City.
