Storm - Mineral - Glacier - Rising

Ira - Nidorino - lv 38
Kieran - Gyarados - lv 35
Edmund - Swinub - lv 35
Wandered though the Ice Path and got ahold of Edmund after KO-ing like four of his sisters because my party's attack power is ridiculous. Got out, went training. Went back in, came out the other side. Went training. Caught Danny the Phanpy but realized that his movepool was really kinda crap and so swapped him for Kieran the Red Gyarados so my team would be a bit better for move diversity and coverage. Trained. A lot. Because Edmund had to catch up to the rest of the party from lv 22 and Kieran from lv 30.
Eventually I gave up on that and went after Clair with severely underleveled mostly ground types. Woohoo. Her gym trainers were all stronger than Edmund and Kieran but they took them out pretty easily. I took on Clair and won with clever use of Dragon Rage and MooMoo Milk. I don't usually use items at all but I didn't want to have to go training again so w/e. And then she refused to give me a badge. Rude. So I went and passed the Elder's test and stuck it to Clair. :3 And then went in and out of the building and fRICKIN CAMERON SHOWED UP hahahaha.
Went to New Bark Town, got told to go see the Kimono Girls in Ecruteak. Trekkin' all over the place for people, aren't I? Ran into Felix. He seemed upset about more than just losing. Went to battle Kimono Girls. Lost three 'mon to that frickin Umbreon, defeated the rest in one or two hits each. Went to catch Ho-oh. Killed Ho-oh. Turned off game and switched to Black.
Got to a point in Desert Resort where I just went "eh, I've probably hit up all the trainers" and left. Started exploring Nimbasa, ran into N, had no trouble beating him at all. Ran around on Routes 16 & 5 for a while. Evolved Yana. Was sad about it. Turned off the game and kept him as a Pansage. Pretty much defeated Elesa's gym with just Shizu. Beat Cheren. Went to Driftveil, beat Plasma with Cheren. Beat myself Clay with a lot of luck and Fuu using Growth while battling Palpitoad + Giga Drain on Excadrill. Beat Bianca. Got Fly. Went up to Chargestone Cave. Got a lesson from myself Clay and a TM. I guess next time I'll... take on... Skyla... with my team of half grass types. I plan to evolve Shizu and Fuu at level 35 and Poppo will evolve at 36 so that should be helpful. Yana's just gonna have to suck it up I guess. :|
wow my team's levels are fairly similar and the one has three more badges wow HG just wow

We made our way through Reversal Mountain and on up to Opelucid City. Now the city is frozen. OH SNAP! And with only one gym badge to go too...hm. Save the region, or get a gym badge? Decisions, decisions, but who says I can't do both?
vacationing in unova for a month! see you soon! ●starboy●
Mucked about in and around Chargestone for a while and witnessed Plasma shenanigans. Made my way out to Mistralton and met Junipapa who seemed to be having fun with Skyla. Went up and played on Route 7 and wandered between there and Chargestone while training. Suddenly--
Shizu hit level 35, learned X-Scissor, and evolved! Then Fuu hit level 35 and learned Energy Ball so I gave her a Sun Stone and she evolved! Then Poppo hit level 36 and evolved! In less than three minutes, all of my team that would evolve did so. Absolutely fabulous. :D
We battled through the Celestial Tower for no apparent reason at all, then took on Skyla's gym and did pretty well- even Fuu and Yana could take out multiple gym trainers on their own. I did just rely on Shizu to take out Skyla, though. Gosh she's easy. I should have had much more trouble than that. Then we wandered over to Twist Mountain, battled Cheren, found out Alder was spying on us, and received Surf. I then had to catch a Herdier to teach surf to so I could catch a Basculin. The one I got ended up being a female lv 23 red-stripe that I took to train in the Celestial Tower till level 30 before going to take out Audino outside of the mountain. It was surprisingly easy to train Rao up the eighteen levels she needed to catch up to the rest of the team. I think that probably had to do with a strong moveset and decent type matchups. I figured Stunfisk would probably not be quite so easy.
Got talked to by myself Clay and Cheren when I finally went into Twist Mountain. God I love the music in that place. And last time I explored it was winter so wow I was getting lost. I tried my best to skip trainers so I could come back when I had caught Stunfisk in Icirrus and that worked out fairly well. So I made it to Icirrus and wow I forget how much I adore this city oh. Quickly caught a lv 32 Stunfisk- not easy, indeed!- and then flew back down to Mistralton for training before going back into Twist Mountain. Managed to fully explore the place, which was good because the season turnover was about to happen. Wandered around Rt 8 and the Moor before actually going to take on Brycen and his ice minions. Eugh.
Actually, I beat Brycen pretty easily. Fuu took out most of his gym trainers, too! I guess I just keep way overestimating how bad my type disadvantage is going to make things? Anyway. Did Dragonspiral Tower, then rushed off to deal with Plasma at the Desert Resort. Got called to Nacrene to hear some exposition and receive an item for plot reasons. Went back to play in icy!Icirrus, then continued on to Rt 9 and Opelucid City. After exploring it and deciding hell naw I'm not taking on this gym yet, I ended up wandering around on Rt 17 & 18. Once I'm done there I'll go to snowy!Twist Mountain and sort of... piss about until my team get a few more levels on them.
Small Update,and the start of this challenge!
Picked Oshawott as the starter,which got boxed later
Was given the keys for Easy and Challenge Mode early in the game.
Picked Challenge Mode for added challenge
Had to hack in Deino and Axew to start out.
Currently on my way to Floccessy Ranch.
so I just finished Heartgold, managed to finish the Kanto part in about 2 hours because I farmed the elite four so much :D. Red was really annoying, especially his Venusaur, but I managed to beat him with tons of luck and items. Anyway, here is my final team and its moveset:
Tyranitar, lvl 79
Scizor, lvl 75
And another update because I just finished Ruby in one go, did take me about 5 hours, but its done :D
One thing I've learned in this playthrough: never use Shedinja again.
alright, here are some more details to this:
- hacked in Scizor as starter, grinded to lvl 20 and took on the first gym
- caught the 2nd team member, a Nincada (I regret it now :D)
- went to Dewford Town, grinded Nincada until I got Shedinja and defeated the 2nd gym leader
- went to Mauville City and got the 3rd badge
- beat Flannery and collected the 3rd pokemon, Anorith
- beat my dad and went to Fortree City
- entered the Safari Zone to catch my last pokemon, Heracross
- did the Team Magma stuff in Lilycove City and surfed to Mossdeep City
- killed Groudon and got the last badge
- went through the Victory Road and grinded my team to lvl 50ish
- got killed repeatedly by Drakes OP Salamence, but after many tries I finally won
- defeated Steven and became the champ
Heracross, lvl 55
Shedinja, lvl 58
Hidden Power (Water)
Armaldo, lvl 53
as you can see my Scizor is way overleveled because basically I took on the Elite Four only with him,
the rest was just there for some switch ins to throw some potions on Scizor :D
I think I'll start with Black2 next, but first I have to look what my team will be.
I just beat Lt. Surge this morning on the bus. Wasn't too difficult. My team is a little bit over leveled, though not terribly so at this time. It will be a while before I add my next two members though since I have to get to Safari Zone for them. I also added Meowth to my party. I really wish it would evolve, but I shouldn't have much longer to wait.
Started the game. Called myself MrBunny. Did the Boring Beginning. Called my Rival Nitro.
Got the Balls... I mean Poke Balls.Went and Caught a Lvl. 4 Weedle. Looked around some more and Caught a Lvl. 4 Caterpie. Then went and train in Sprout Tower.
Just realized how long it has been since I last posted! Not had much free time but not far off finishing now (got side tracked when I bought Soul Silver last week, late I know!) but just need to grind and beat the E4 now! Do we need to provide photographic evidence of completion or just state we've finished with what our team is?
Nobody's posted? OK.
Janine; Crystal - Bayleef, Spinarak, Zubat, Ekans. The other two members are going to be Nidoqueen and Espeon. I'm in Union Cave.
Winona; Kanto - Butterfree, Butterfree, Magikarp (To be Gyarados). The other will be Dragonite. I'm in Cerulean.
