    Sapphire Water Mono-Type Challenge Update #2
    Each part covers up to that gym battle

    Part #1:
    Spoiler:
    Got a bike and the HM for Rock Smash

    Ran around defeating all trainers near Mauville, since Sam was very close to level 20, I killed a few wild Pokémon to evolve him

    I now no longer had a useless Magikarp, but a super epic awesome Gyarados thing.

    Taught Rock smash to Sam and continued north

    Got to Fallarbor town with no problem (focusing on exp for Ted)

    Head to Lannette’s house, get the Lotad doll (I honestly have no idea what it does)

    Head to meteor falls, Ted evolves into Pelipper on the way

    Encounter Teams Aqua and Magma at Meteor falls

    Went to the volcano to stop team Aqua and lost, because of my amazing idea of coming there with 2 half dead pokemon and no potions. Foresight is good

    Came back and defeated him, though had some problems as my pokemon were slightly underleveled

    Arrive in Lavaridge Town and go to the gym

    Defeated Flannery with minor problems (her Torkoal got lucky and paralyzed Bob after he body slammed)

    Part #2
    Spoiler:
    Grind Ted, and Sam, to level 30, and Joe to level 25

    Bike down to Slateport to take Mr. Briney’s boat to Petalburg

    Defeated trainers in Petalburg gym with no problem (Accuracy – Defense – Strength rooms)

    Sam defeated the first Slaking and Vigoroth, but was reduced to red HP.
    Ted did some damage to the second Slaking but was killed by a lucky crit.
    Bob spammed Mud Slap and was able to kill it despite the fact that 2 hyper potions were used on it.

    Part #3:
    Spoiler:
    Receive HM03 (surf) from Wally’s parents

    Taught surf to Sam, forgetting tackle

    Headed to abandoned ship and caught a Tentacool, named it Mark because (guess why) I felt like it

    Realized that Tentacool was now the highest level Pokémon I had

    Went to abandoned ship, leveling Bob, and got a TM for Ice Beam to help in the next gym

    Bob evolved into Swampert while surfing to Slateport

    Taught Mark Ice Beam

    Trained Mark so he gained a level and evolved

    Defeated team Aqua at weather institute – received castform and boxed it IMMEDIATELY

    Defeated May with no problems and received HM02 (Fly), which I taught to Ted

    Got Devon Scope from Steven, and defeated Kecleons to open the way to the gym

    Defeated Winona with ice beams, the only problem being Skarmory
