    Woohoo! Finished LG! I beat the E4 and ASH, but it was touch and go there for a while. I had to Hypnosis/Potion/Revive for Lance cause of his Flying types. No extensive update this time since I covered so much ground since I left off at Sliph Co. Lots of OHkO's and new moves for E4.

    E4 Highlights:

    Spoiler:
    • Beat Lorelei without losing a single member to fainting. Fortunately Fighting is super effective against Ice. My only trouble was with Jynx and Slowbro, but I don't think either of them know Psychic (????) since it was never used against me.
    • Bruno went down to Psychic (Wash)/Aerial Ace (FoF), as well as a couple of Vital Throws (Chopper) against Onyx.
    • Agatha was kind of a *****, but her Gengar's move sets are a joke, so I was able to take her down with good contributions from all team members.
    • Lance was pretty hard, due to his Flying types, and his pokemon were at least 5-8 levels above me. I'd say the key was teaching Chopper Toxic (replacing Vital Throw) and Wash Blizzard (Replacing Body Slam) right before the battle. Toxic basically took out Aerodactyl as he was killing me with Wing Attack. Obviously Blizzard was really helpful, especially against the Dragonairs, and Hypnosis was great for stalling while Revive/Lemonade spamming to keep my team in the battle. Wash took out his last Dragonair with the last Blizzard/Surf combo. Used my only Elixir on Wash after the battle, and all my extra Rare Candies on FoF to get an edge for ASH.
    • ASH was next, and going into the battle I was extremely worried about Alakazam outspeeding all of my team and OHkOing them all with Psychic spam. Fortunately, ASH is really dumb and used Future sight (I really don't get it) after FoF 2HkOd Pigeot with Rock Slide (Sand Attack? Really?). Anyways, FoF got off a Return before getting pwned, and Wash came in to finish him off with a Surf after he used Future Sight again (lol). After that was Exeggutor, which Wash beat with Hypnosis/Blizzard/Surf, then Rhyhorn (what a worthless pokemon, seriously...) with a single Surf. Arcanine was up next, and Wash got off a surf before getting into the red with Extreme Speed. Hyper Potion and one more Surf later, only Blastoise was left. Blastoise isn't weak to anything Wash knows, so I switched him out for Hitmonchan after Hypnosis went off and Max Revived FoF. Blastoise kept using Skull Bash, which kept being blocked my Detect, until I ran out of PP and it killed Hitmonchan. With those Skull Bashes, Blastoise had 4-5 stages of Defense, so I was preparing for a long battle to the finish, when Cross Chop critical hit for 1/2 his HP and I became the CHAMPION!


    FINAL TEAM I:

      Hmm...this challenge sounds pretty interesting!! *I've been gone for a while, and none of these challenges were here when I originally signed up *

      I think I'm gonna go ahead and give it a shot.

      Fire-Type only. Gonna use FireRed, Crystal, Emerald, Platinum (As they are the only games I have available to me).

      I take it I just go ahead and make a post after defeating each game?

        Well, if you use an emulator then technically you have access to all the games lol. Also, usually people make updates are made throughout the game, not just once at the end (although I'm not sure if you meant gym instead of game). I typically like to update once every two gyms or so, depending how far I get in a day. Have fun! :D.

        Now, time for my update. It's pretty short, as I didn't get as far as I wanted, but enough happened to warrant one.

        So I went and challenged the Vermilion gym, hoping that Charmeleon would be able beat everbody. Well, that didn't quite happen. The trainers were easy, but Lt. Surge is a lot more difficult in the remake here. I had to fight him twice. Voltorb and Pikachu went down easily both times, but the first time, Raichu used a DT and Charmeleon missed with Dig, then Raichu paralyzed him with Thunder Wave and Charmeleon proceeded to be paralyzed FOUR TIMES IN A ROW! Raichu then spammed DT while Charmeleon was paralyzed and it was over as Raichu was untouchable. The second time around Charmeleon was able to hit with Dig after one DT and got Raichu into the red. Charmeleon ended up fainting, but Freed with his CompoundEyes (raises accuracy 30%) was able to come in, survive a Shock Wave, and Confusion for the revenge kill and the win. The Thunder Badge was mine, as well as Shock Wave! \O/\O/\O/

        Now it was time to take out Magikarp from the Day-Care, where he had grown 6 levels to L11, and start my way to Rock Tunnel. I caught a Meowth to replace Ch'Ding as my HM slave because Meowth can learn Flash and Cut. Went through Diglett's Cave, got Flash, and fought the remaining trainers on Route 11 on the other side of Diglett's Cave, where Venom evolved into Golbat and learned Wing Attack for a seriously needed stat and power boost. Went up to Route 10 and battled all the trainers, saved outside Rock Tunnel. Will brave the dark tomorrow.

        Team Fargo:

        Magikarp, F - L19
        Nature: Bashful
        Ability: Swift Swim
        Moves: Splash, Tackle

        Moves: Quick Attack, Secret Power, Gust, Sand-Attack

        Nature: Quirky
        Ability: Inner Focus
        Moves: Wing Attack, Astonish, Supersonic, Bite

        Charmeleon, M - L28

          Celadon, All the way to Fuschia! Felt like stopping for the day half-way through but decided to atleast get to Fuschia Town.

          -Flew to Pokemon Tower
          -Flare VS Marowak: Dig [1], Leer [Miss], Dig [2], Headbutt, Bite, Bonemarang [Miss], Dig [1], Bonemarang [Miss], Dig [2] [Crit], Marowak Faints!
          -Saved Mr. Fuji!
          -Obtained Poke Flute
          -Killed Snorlax #1
          --Random Battle
          ---Flare VS Voltorb: Screech, Dig [2], Self-Destruct [Miss], Voltorb Faints!
          ---Flare VS Electrode: Spark [Miss], Dig [2], Electrode Faints!
          [^Put in for lulz. Killed 2 Pokemon only using one move!]
          -Remembered to get Bike
          -Made it to Fuschia
          -Paid for 4,550 Coins at Game Corner
          -Bought Iron Tail and taught to Ashe
          -Evolved Ashe into Arcanine
          -Got Surf HM on Second Try in Safari [+ Tons of other Moves/Items]
          -Fished a Goldeen to be my Slave for Surf

          I have beaten two trainers in the Fuschia Gym so far and kind of got bored so my team is;

          Charizard [Flame] Lv45
          -Brick Break
          -Mega Punch
          -Flamethrower
          -Fly

          Arcanine [Ashe] Lv40
          -Bite
          -Iron Tail
          -Flame Wheel
          -Secret Power

          Flareon [Flare] Lv40
          -Dig
          -Fire Spin
          -Bite
          -Quick Attack

          Meowth [HM Slave]
          Goldeen [Slave2]

          Plan on maybe getting Shadow Ball for Flareon.

          Btw, I'm really liking these Monotype challenges. They make me think alot more over their movesets and interest me alot more than playing Pokemon normally. Can't wait for Fire Monotype of Emerald for some reason.

                Took down Juan. Battle wasn't overly difficult with Shiftry, Crawdaunt and Ebony doing most of the work. His Seadra was the main contender and definitely put up a huge fight. It was a back and forth battle until he used Rest the second time and I was able to Swords Dance up and 1 shot it. (Yay).

                I'm sure his harem will console him adequately.

                Going to level up a bit and hit the elite four.

                  Update

                  After defeating the elite 4, i got the ticket from professor elm boarded the ship. I fought every trainer on the ship and found the old mans granddaughter. I left the ship and went to vermillions gym and challenged lt. surge. I gave Hydra its exp. share and seahorse took his whole team out with surf.

                  Walked over to lavender town and went to the gym and challenged sabrina. Sabrina got pretty close to winning. My slaves kinda saved me. I sent them out so i could revive my fallen pokes.

                  Went to celadon and checked out the tm's there. Since there was nothing useful, i went to the gym. Erika was easy until bellosm. She took minimum damage from horsea's twister and killed her, so Hydra had to finish it with slam.

                  I forgot to grab a bike.. again. So i went back to the elite 4 and killed them real fast.

                  Flew to golden rod, got my bike, swam to kanto and made my way to fuschia. I went into the gym and killed janine. Slam and twister did the job.

                  Made it through rock tunnel and to the power plant. Went to cerlean and got the part, went back to the plant, gave it to them, went to lavender, got the radio card, flew back to cerlean, ran into a trainer, and hydra evolved into a dragonite, finally. Found misty on a date, went to her gym and challenged her. Hydra died against her lapras, due to blizzard, and seahorse was constantly getting frozen by her starmie. I killed it though.

                  Forgot to get the radio to, so i challenged the E4 again.. Flew to goldenrod and got the radio thingy on the pokegear. Swam back to kanto again.. Flew to vermilion, woke snorlax and killed him. Ran threw diglet cave and killed brock really quick.

                  Made it to pallet town, swam to cinnabar, met blue, swam to the islands, killed blaine, swam back to cinnabar, and blue went back to his gym.

                  Flew to viridian and beat blue easily.

                  Lost really bad against red, so i'm grinding them to level 70 on the E4.


                  My Current Team...


                  Hydra/Dragonite

                  Level 64

                  -Slam
                  -Wing Attack
                  -Thunder Wave
                  -Outrage


                  Seahorse/Kingdra

                  Level 67

                  -Surf
                  -Smokescreen
                  -Agility
                  -Twister

                  My next update, i will have defeated red.

                  After about 15 E4 fights, i bought a lot of items (revives and full restores) and i challenged Red


                  Red, defeated

                  He started with his pikachu, and i started with seahorse. I used surf and it was dead. His next pokemon was espeon. I used surf twice, dead. Next up, snorlax. I sent out hydra and started using outrage and slam until it died with slam. The next one was blatoise. I had seahorse use twister until it fainted. Next was venusaur. Hydra took it out easily with wing attack. One or 2 shots. And his final pokemon was charizard. Sea horse used surf and that was the end of it.


                  My Final Team

                  Seahorse/Kingdra

                  Level 75

                  -Surf
                  -Smoke Screen
                  -Agility
                  -Twister

                  Seahorse was really helpful. Especially since i basically did a solo run with her.


                  Hydra/Dragonite

                  Level 72

                  -Slam
                  -Wing Attack
                  -Thunder Wave
                  -Outrage

                  Hydra ended up as a filler pokemon. I really didn't need him to do this one. If i didn't catch him, i probably would have a level 90 kingdra or higher.


                  Done with johto now. The next game will be,Sapphire. I think I'll hack in a Bagon to begin with. But i won't start that till later.

                          holy crap this looks entertaining... a while ago, I started a challenge in a LeafGreen ROM, but never got around to posting it. luckily, I've kept a vigilant log of what I've done.

                          here's my log so far:

                          00:02 - beat BLUE in first battle in OAK's lab.
                          00:22 - up to this point, training SQUIRTLE. now level 9, almost 10. bought some items for the forest ahead.

                          01:10 - SQUIRTLE evolved into WARTORTLE.
                          01:23 - paid an 'outrageous' $500 for MAGIKARP (I mean, I think it's fair...).
                          02:13 - took care of TEAM ROCKET and got the DOME FOSSIL (KABUTO, I think).
                          02:24 - got to CERULEAN CITY.

                          04:38 - walking in the grass looking for a MEOWTH (an HM slave). finally caught him after much effort (all moves too powerful = 1HKO).
                          05:02 - (nervously) began VERMILLION GYM challenge. hoping that the fact I taught WARTORTLE DIG will make a difference.

                          05:45 - 'hello, RED. have you caught 10 pokemon yet? no? NO HM05 FOR YOU!' looks like I'm going to have to catch some pokemon.
                          05:56 - went on a catching spree and caught 3 pokemon, one of them CATERPIE who I plan to evolve to get the other 2 entries.

                            First update for dragon UMC on sapphire.

                            I dont really have to explain what happens in the beginning , so i won't. I chose treecko as my starter since torchic poses more of a challenge than any of them.. After killing may and getting my pokeballs, i hacked in a level 2 bagon. Hacking it in was actually VERY difficult. And catching it was even harder. I eventually got it though. On my way to the forest, i helped wally catch a ralts. Against the rich boy with the zigizagoon, he used a full restore to heal it... I found that to be very interesting.. And stupid. I went through the forest, saved the devon worker, made it to rustboro. I entered my least favorite gym. I always die a thousand times against roxanne. I enter the gym at level 11 and after i defeated her i was level 16.. Her geodude was kinda easy. It died by a few bites. Nosepass sucked. Once it used rock tomb, i was slower than it. I had to use a potion once, so i could do the final blow.

                            Ran into the devon worker guy. Got the devon goods. Got the letter to give to steve and left to mr. brinneys house. road to dewford. ran through rock cave in the dark. gave steven his letter. went to the gym and challenged brawly. It took me 3 tries to beat him. I used headbutt the whole time.

                            I'm done for now.

                            My Current Team...

                              Well, I'll post my progress since the 5th gym in pokemon sapphire. I beat norman with x items, then I went to mauville and turned off the generator in new mauville. Then I surfed east from mauville, eliminated the bird keepers, and fought some of the bug keepers/maniacs north of the bird keepers. Then I took care of the 1st pokemon ranger after several tries (I hate mega drain...). The 2nd wasn't overly hard, and then I headed north to the weather institute. Beat team aqua there, beat may right after, and skipped the ninja boys and healed at fortree city. Then I went back and eliminated the ninja boys for xp. Started route 120, beating 1 trainer and getting a rare candy. Then I taught facade to lombre. Afterwards, I went and defeated gabby and ty. I told them, "Um". Then I laid waste to the bird keeper here. Got the devon scope from steven, so next time is the fortree gym!

                                  I'll sign up for a Water type run on Emerald and I'll be starting now so update should be soon

                                  Okay, update time #1:

                                  -Started, named myself OTH (You might be able to guess why later..)
                                  -Choose Mudkip, named him Lucas
                                  -Beat May easily
                                  -Trained Lucas to level 10.
                                  -Caught Wingull, called her Haley - trained her to level 8.
                                  -Caught Lotad, named him Nathan - trained him also to level 8.

                                  Next to train the team onto level 10 before battling trainer numero uno.

                                  Team:

                                  Lucas/Mudkip - L10


                                  Haley/Wingull - L8


                                  Nathan/Lotad - L8

                                    Well, my last update was at the end of LeafGreen with my Fighting powerhouse team. Now on to SoulSilver for Johto. I am pretty far into the game at this point since I have forgotten to update, so a lot of details are going to be pretty skimpy. For the sake of you readers, I'll use bullets so you won't be intimidated by a foot long wall of text.

                                    Named myself I again, and Rival ASH.

                                    Update 1 - Start to Victory Road
                                    Spoiler:

                                    • So in Johto, the first Fighting type you can catch is Heracross via Headbutt. So I simply changed out my starter Cyndaquil for a Torchic via hack. Cyndaquil went into my PC box at Violet City. Named my Torchic Burn.
                                    • Ran through Slowpoke Well/Rival/Sprout Tower/First gym pretty handily, evolving into Combusken when I beat Falkner, learning double kick.
                                    • Grinded down to Azalea, beat Rival/Bugsy pretty easily (Fire is OP as starter in Johto tbh) and once I got Cut, I taught Headbutt to my HM Slave and caught a L4 Heracross (named Impale) in Azalea Town.
                                    • Through Ilex Forest and on the other side, I hatched my Ralts egg , named him Squib, and started leveling him along with Impale. Impale learned Brick Break just in time for Whitney.
                                    • SquirtBottle and one dead Sudowoodo later I was in Ecruteak, where Squib evolved to Kirlia. Unfortunately the only Dawn Stones are obtainable in Kanto, so I hacked in a Dawn stone to evolve Squib into Gallade.
                                    • Went to the Burned Tower, saw the 3 legendary beasts, Got Surf from the TR harasser, beat Morty, ran over to grab strength, and then surfed on the patch of water in Ecruteak to catch a Poliwhirl L20, named Wash. Taught Surf.
                                    • Impale knows Aerial Ace so Cianwood was a cinch.
                                    • Burn / Wash for Jasmine.
                                    • Cleared out Rocket Hideout in Mahogany after killing Gyrados. Beat Pryce with combination of Squib (Magical Leaf), Burn (Ember), Wash (Hypnosis/Body Slam). My team is all L33.
                                    • Got a call from Elm to deal with Team Rocket again in Goldenrod Radio Tower. Chow time for Squib and his Psycho Cut.
                                    • Many trainers later, I faced Executive Archer and his Houndour/Houndoom/Koffing (why not evolve that sucker???). Houndoom was tough, but I managed to get off a Hypnosis and 2 Surfs later he was down.
                                    • Short trip through Ice Patch and into Blackthorn City. I knew I need to get Squib a couple moves from his past, so I had farmed up a couple Heart Scales from Rock Smash (It took me a long time ) and taught him Leaf Blade and Night Slash here.
                                    • I was a bit under-leveled for Claire (Who isn't by this time?) and it took me a couple tries to get the right rotation for her Dragonairs and Kingdra. Hypnosis was my best friend.
                                    • On to Dragon Lair to get my 8th badge, then got a call from Elm to see him. Got the Master Ball, and went to see the kimono girls. This is a tough series, but I managed to get through with only Impale fainting.
                                    • Went to Whirl Islands and used the Master Ball on Lugia for HM Slave purposes.
                                    • Surfed to Kanto, traveled up to VR and went through it, beat my Rival with only Impale/Wash. Finally got a call to re-battle for a Water Stone, and went and got it after I left the cave.
                                    • Elite Four time! My team was all around 42-45 before Will.


                                    Elite Four (First Time)
                                    Spoiler:

                                    • Will took a couple tries, as all my pokemon are weak to Flying and all but Squib is weak to Psychic. I have no Ice moves either, only lame Rock Tomb for Heracross. Rock Slide isn't until Brock, and Stone Edge is Battle Frontier territory. Finally got through with Squib out speeding Xatu and not hurting himself with confusion (whew...)
                                    • Koga was pretty easy. Except for damn Crobat. Double Team is EVIL. The rest fell to Psycho Cut/Blaze Kick.
                                    • Bruno was easy too. His fighters have weak defense and Onix is a joke to Surf. Psycho Cut/Aerial Ace took them down.
                                    • Karen was easy too. Fighting > Dark. Impale (Close Combat) and Burn (Bulk Up/Double Kick) took care of them with ease.
                                    • Oh Lance. Lance Lance Lance. I hate you so much. It doesn't seem fair that all his pokemon are flying types. Charizard/Aerodactyl owned me for a few times until I used Max Revive on Wash after he died to Aerial Ace. Got Lance to use 2 Full Restores on Aerodactyl alone before Surf finally took him out. Charizard got a Hypnosis (Thank God) Surf Combo. Hyper Potion stalled L50 Dragonite until he confused himself with Outrage, then I was able to kill him with Body Slam. Nothing pretty, but I won.


                                    I am currently in Kanto with 3 or so Badges to go. Nothing really gave me any trouble, not even Sabrina. Still need Fuschia, Viridian, and Cinnabar Island Gyms.

                                    Team I:

                                        I feel like everyone has done this type on this game, but oh well... It's exciting!
                                        Any other suggestions would be nice, that could help me on my adventure to the end. (Yet Again)

                                        Okay, I've made some progress here on LeafGreen.
                                        • Battled through Rock Tunnel after Magikarp evolved into Gyarados (\O/) and I taught it Water Pulse and destroyed the Hikers with it.
                                        • Got to Lavender Town, battled Hal and swept him with Gyarados easily.
                                        • Used a couple Repels and defeated all the Channelers with Freed's Confusion.
                                        • Went back down, biked to Celadon and got Fly, taught it to Bob.
                                        • Cleared out the Hideout in the Game Corner with everyone chipping in, defeated Giovanni easily with Gyarados and Water Pulse+Dragon Rage.
                                        • Challenged the gym, rotating everyone and defeated Erica easily with Charmeleon.
                                        • Went back to Lavender Town and killed Marowak and rescued Mr Fuji.
                                        • Going back to Celadon, I killed the Snorlax and started down Cycling Road but ended up going back to Lavender Town to take the easier route to Fuchsia down the coast.
                                        • In Lavender Town, renamed Gyarados Omnomnom and Charmeleon Salamite as I promised in my first post lol.

                                        Gonna go to Fuchsia next. The coastal route is set for my rampage.
