    Mixed Challenge on Silver (Completed July 3, 2013)

    Moves: Rollout, Swift, Flame Wheel, Smokescreen

    Moves: Dig, Hyper Fang, Pursuit, Focus Energy

    Moves: Horn Attack, Double Kick, Focus Energy, Fury Attack

    Events in my final battle:

    For the Elite four, the hardest part was trying not to get Cyndaquil killed by Lance's Gyarados. Usually, he starts out with Rain Dance, followed by a Surf (if you're weak against it) and then a Hyper Beam. With Rattata, my stronger attacker, being taken down by Agatha's Gengar in the previous battle, I needed a lot of luck to win this.

    I send out Cyndaquil, ordering him to use smokescreen. Lance orders Gyarados to use Rain Dance as expected... Unfortunately, Gyarados's Surf had NOT missed.... but to my surprise, Cyndaquil was still standing. O_o Nonetheless, Cyndaquil's rollout was able to build up twice, killing Gyarados and awaiting for it's next victim. The battle goes on, and down goes Lance's 1st Dragonite, he takes out Aerodactly. The problem with Aerodactyl is his speed, power, and Rock Slide. For this battle, i had to take Nidoran out first, aiming to wear Aerodactyl down.

    Nidoran at full life, Cyndaquil in red... it was getting hopeless. None of Nidoran's attacks were truly effective against Aerodactyl. However, with his defense (and Quick claw equipped) he still managed to bring Aerodactyl to half HP. With only one pokemon left, i was worried of repeating -- but hey, i'm pretty sure I could've gone that far again on any following attempt, anyway.

    So, with Cyndaquil being my last strand of hope, i let him use rollout. That one attack, super-effective, brought Aerodactyl down in a critical hit. Charizard is out, and a 2nd stage rollout was enough to bring him down. LOL. How glad i was that Lance didn't take his 2nd Dragonite out so early. Well, you already know what happens here. 3rd stage rollout was more than enough to take Dragonite down, and I finally earn my Champion title. GG, Cyndaquil, gg. Never missed any of those rollouts... well-played.

    Pretty epic fight, no? Tho rollout felt really cheap. Still, that run made me wanna finish Gold/Crystal as well thanks to this (with different pokemon, of course)... but I'm continuing and finishing my Eme run first. >_<

    So up next is a Mixed challenge (replacing the supposedly bug monotype) on Emerald with the following pokemon:
