    Update #4 on my HeartGold grass monotype run, with 8 badges still.

    -Kimono Girls battles! That Flareon was a problem; took down half my team, I believe. The Jolteon also knocked out my Tangrowth thanks to Double Team and paralysis hax.
    -Did the Bell Tower (?, I'm used to calling it Tin Tower) thing with Ho-oh.
    -Got a new HM Slave, Quagsire, for the whole Victory Road area. Had to ditch my Tangrowth in the meantime.
    -Victory Road... Golbat are the embodiment of evil.
    -Especially the rival's Golbat. Sneasel was a bit of a jerk, Typhlosion was scarily troublesome, but that Golbat was an annoying pain! Then I easily took out the last three (Magneton, Haunter, Kadabra) with my Sunflora's Sunnybeam combo.
    -Brought Tangrowth back on to the team, and we're currently grinding.

    The team so far:

    Chicory (Meganium, male) Lv. 44
    @Miracle Seed
    -Petal Dance
    -Light Screen

    Ginger (Victreebel, female) Lv. 44
    @Shell Bell
    -Razor Leaf
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Stun Spore
    -Vine Whip

    Anise (Jumpluff, female) Lv. 44
    @King's Rock
    -Giga Drain
    -Sleep Powder
    -Leech Seed

    Thyme (Gloom, male) Lv. 44
    @Poison Barb
    -Sleep Powder
    -Mega Drain

    Cilantro (Sunflora, male) Lv. 44
    @Quick Claw
    -Petal Dance
    -Sunny Day
    -Leaf Storm

    Sage (Tangrowth, male) Lv. 43
    Leaf Guard
    -Mega Drain

    HM Slave:
    -Rock Smash

    I've also started my FireRed run of this challenge. So far, I have two badges.

    -Started with Bulbasaur, named him Garlic.

    -Beat Rival ProfOak, using up my Potion because of a lucky crit. Worth the experience.
    -Delivered the parcel to the old Professor Oak.
    -On Route 1, caught a Seedot named Fava. Wait, Seedot? What are you doing here? I'm not planning on training one in Emerald, and Kanto (FireRed) only has five grass-type families, so...

    -Did some grinding, and took on the rival again. Leech Seed to victory!
    -Got through Viridian City and Forest, and made it to Pewter.
    -Beat Brock and got the Boulder Badge! Not a particularly exciting battle.
    -Fava evolved... Huh? Oh, probably need the National Dex for that. I found a cheat for that, but I shouldn't use it until I get the Tea from the old lady in Celadon or something.

    -Mt. Moon - caught Cassava, the Paras. I'll train it for real this time! Also, Garlic evolved.

    -Reached Cerulean and beat Rival again. That Pidgeotto is dangerous.
    -Caught an Oddish north of Cerulean and named her Arugula.

    -Got the S.S. Ticket.
    -Beat Misty and won the Cascade Badge! A bit more exciting than Brock's battle.

    -Reached Vermillion and cleared the route east of it.
    -Caught some more pokémon so I can get Flash later.

    The team so far:

    Completed Solo Runs
    Treecko: FR (3 KOs) | HG (29 KOs)
    Buizel: Pt (5 KOs)
