    Sorry for taking so long to update, things got pretty hectic in my life. Being unemployed fracking stinks lol.

    Gold Ultimate Mono-Water Challenge: Update 1

    -Started up, named myself Blue and chose Totodile as my starter
    -Ground levels until Totodile was lvl 10
    -Wiped the floor with my Rival before going back to New Bark town and finishing up the beginning stuff
    -Swept Sprout Tower fairly easily, as well as Falkner[Bite is amazing]
    -Used speed up to hatch egg and took Togepi back to Elm before boxing him forever[I thought I got something other than an everstone for it -__-]
    -Caught a Wooper and a Magikarp, once I got an Old Rod
    -Made it through the cave and drove Rockets out of Slowpoke Well, also caught a slowpoke
    -Quickly learnt that fast forward is my enemy, as it lead to me accidentally challenging my rival several times before I finally stopped using it[bad fracking habits lol]
    -Totodile evolved into Croconaw while grinding in the Well
    -Still couldn't beat my Rival, so I ground levels in the Well until Wooper and Magikarp evolved, with Gyarados making short work of Green's Bayleef and Bugsy's Scyther, which were the main problems
    -Caught a Hoppip, thinking it could learn Cut..... it can't, so it got boxed
    -Caught a Sandshrew, which can learn Cut, so it became my HM Slave
    -Made it to Goldenrod, with Whitney being pretty simple, although Miltank did KO Croconaw
    -Taught Quagsire Dig, which made the Kimono Girls pretty simple
    -Gyarados' Bite made short work of Morty's gym
    -Caught a bunch of water types, decided on adding Tentacool and Chinchou to my party
    -Caught a Mantine while grinding outside of Cianwood
    -Switched Tentacool for Mantine, as I've never used Mantine before
    -Beat Jasmine fairly easily with Dig
    -Chuck was easy, but annoying
    -Caught a Red Gyarados and traded him into my party to replace my regular Gyarados
    -Cleared out the Rockets with Lance
    -Chinchou evolved in the Mahogany Gym
    -Percy was really easy, Lanturn Sparked Seel and Dewgong, and Water Gun took out Piloswine
    -Ran all the way back to Whirl Islands to get myself a Seel
    -Got all the way to Blackthorn City before realizing that I can't challenge the gym because I haven't cleared out Goldenrod Radio Tower

    Aside from not being able to decide who I want on my team, an overall enjoyable run so far. I'm really liking my current team :p
    I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.
