It's been a while since my last update, and it will probably be a while until my next update, but I've found some free time this afternoon and decided to take the opportunity to make some progress in my Steel run in Black 2. In my last update, I had made my way through defeating Elesa. Since then and before today, I traveled to Drifveil City, defeated Clay, and began traveling through Chargestone Cave. Today I finished exploring Chargestone, explored Route 7/Celestial Tower, defeated Skyla, and flew to Lentimas town before saving. During my time in Chargestone Cave I added on to my team by capturing an awfully cute (female!) Nosepass, and managed to evolve both it and Magneton in the progress!

Black 2 Team:
Lucario / lv41 / Force Palm, Quick Attack, Bone Rush, Counter
Magnezone / lv41 / Tackle, Magnet Bomb, Flash Cannon, Spark
Excadrill / lv41 / Earthquake, Rock Slide, Slash, Metal Claw
Probopass / lv41 / Discharge, Power Gem, Spark, Rock Slide

Update on Ultimate Monotype Challenge (Fire).

Time to start my penultimate Unova monotype, with Fire-types!

Update #1 on Black 2.

Name: Ash
Rival: Hugh
Starter: Tepig
  • First thing I did was to activate Challenge Mode, then started the game.
  • Picked Tepig as my starter and named him Blazin'.
  • Went through the beginning of the game and eventually went up against Cheren.
  • Blazin' needed a Fresh Water but was able to win pretty easily.
  • Moved on to Virbank City and the Complex, where I caught Magma the Magby and Legend the Growlithe.
  • Trained them up a bit, and Blazin' evolved into Pignite!
  • Took on Roxie, who was pretty hard, but Blazin' was able to finish it against Whirlipede.
  • Visited the PokeStar Studios, defeated the Team Plasma grunts, then sailed to Castelia City.
  • Entered the Castelia Sewers and saved.
Screens:

Team Ash:

Legend the Naughty Growlithe, ♂ - L17 @ Amulet Coin

          Unova, surrender to my firepower!

          Type: Fire
          Badges: 8
          Game: Black 2

          Challenge Completed!

          After defeating Marlon, I chased Team Plasma off - got a Magmarizer and evolved Magmar in the process, woohooh. Kyurem fused with Zekrom was surprisingly easy. All it took was two Outrages from Arcanine. Anyway, the story unfolds, and suddenly, I'm at the Pokémon League.

          Spoiler:
          Shauntal was a clean Chandelure sweep, not much to say.

          Marshal wasn't too much trouble. Chandelure OHKO'd his two first Pokémon, but fearing that Sawk might outspeed my Chandelure, I sent out Darmanitan. Thanks to Sturdy and Full Restore and a couple of missing Zen Headbutts, his Sawk ended up putting Darmanitan to rest. Arcanine then came out for a Flare Blitz revenge kill, and for the final match, Magmortar took out Mienshao with a single Psychic.

          The match against Grimsley was just a series of OHKOs from different Pokémon. The only attack he got in was Liepard's Fake Out.

          Caitlin was more or less just as boring, however she did manage to put Arcanine to sleep, effectively putting a stopper to my plans for a Crunch sweep. It was more or less a clean sweep anyway, though, thanks to Chandelure.

          Iris was challenging. Darmanitan OHKO'd Hydreigon with Superpower, and I planned to do the same thing with Aggron, but Aggron hung in there with a little HP left, then Rock Slided Darmanitan all the way to Pokémon Heaven. I sent out Emboar, taking Aggron down, even after a wasted Full Restore. She then sent out her mother****er of a Haxorus, and I'm thinking "huh, I'll just send out Arcanine with an Outrage. No probs", but the ****er had a Focus Sash and Earthquaked Arcanine to hell. I then bet on Volcarona to perform a Quiver Dance before taking him down. He lost some HP to Earthquake, but pulled off the Quiver Dance and took down Haxorus with a Silver Wind. She sent out Druddigon, which lost a fair amount of HP to Silver Wind, but eventually took down Volcarona with Rock Slide. I then sent out Emboar, and not wanting to lose any speed, I go for a Head Smash, and it misses. Druddigon uses Focus Blast, and it tickles. Now, repeat that process, and I was getting annoyed. I went for a suicide Head Smash, and it worked! Druggion went down, and Emboar was still standing! Lapras came out, but I stuck with Emboar, outspeeding and OHKOing Lapras with a Hammer Arm. Archeops is sent out. I got over-confident and stuck with Emboar, which obviously didn't went well. Acrobatics. I sent out Chandelure for a suicide mission, where I planned to Max Revive Arcanine. When Chandelure was eventually taken down, I sent out Arcanine, and he pulled off a ****ing beautiful Wild Charge. WE DID IT.

          TL;DR - I kicked Iris' ass and won.

          My final team:

          Spoiler:

          Darmanitan, lv. 62 @ Razor Claw
          Male // Jolly // Sheer Force
          - Flare Blitz
          - Zen Headbutt
          - Superpower
          - Return

          Darmanitan, you are a beast. I've used Darmanitan a few times before, and if I could, I would use him on several monotype runs. Pokémon needs more Darmanitan. Everything needs more Darmanitan. I love Darmanitan, he's a goddamn bro.


          Magmortar, lv. 61 @ Charcoal
          Male // Hardy // Flame Body
          - Flamethrower
          - Psychic
          - Sunny Day
          - Thunderbolt

          I've never, ever, ever used Magmortar before. I never really liked it. I was never too fond of Magmar in the first place, then Magmortar came along, and I have to admit, I hated its design. However, Magby was the first Pokémon I caught during this challenge, and this guy helped me out tons of times. Magmortar, you're cool in my book.


          Chandelure, lv. 66 @ Spell Tag
          Female // Modest // Flame Body
          - Psychic
          - Flamethrower
          - Energy Ball
          - Shadow Ball

          Damn. There are a lot of Gen V Pokémon I've always wanted to use, but never really got around to it. Chandelure is one of those. Loved its design and its typing from the moment I saw it. And she proved to an absolute beast. Definitely my most important Pokémon in the Pokémon League.


          Volcarona, lv. 61 @ SilverPowder
          Male // Calm // Flame Body
          - Silver Wind
          - Roost
          - Flamethrower
          - Quiver Dance

          Having caught this fella as a lv. 35 Volcarona, I can only imagine how freakishly frustrating it must be to train Larvesta from an egg to this beautiful beast. Volcarona has so much potential, but had so lacking moves for so long. Still nine levels to go before he learns Bug Buzz. Anyway, Volcarona was fun to use, but didn't exactly live up to my expectations, which admittedly were set pretty damn high.


          Arcanine, lv. 61 @ Dragon Fang
          Male // Hardy // Flash Fire
          - Flare Blitz
          - Crunch
          - Outrage
          - Wild Charge

          Who doesn't love Arcanine? I've used this guy on a fair amount of playthroughs throughout this challenge, and he never ceases to amaze. Just... Great job, Arcanine. Also, this guy dealt the final death blow to Iris.


          Emboar, lv. 64 @ Mystic Water
          Male // Naughty // Blaze
          - Flare Blitz
          - Hammer Arm
          - Scald
          - Head Smash

          I've used Samurott before, love the design. I've used Serperior before, love the design and the odd stat distribution. I've never used Emboar before, and I finally appreciate the fire beard and the whole sumo-thing it has going. He will never be my favorite starter, but he's still a badass with a lot of raw power and surprising versatility.

          And that, kids, concludes my Ultimate Fire-Monotype Challenge!

          Fire Monotype - Platinum

          Defeated Volknor at some point. Got stuck in the last room trying to reach him for a couple of hours. Stupid half-turn switches! Nearly got killed several times in Victory Road from lack of AP and super effective hits. (Stupid ground/rock types!) By the time I got to the E4, my team was at level 59 so already overleveled. Blasted through the E4 easily enough, though had to do revives often enough. Defeated Cynthia easily, with a +6 Houndoom with Nasty Plot (haha Spiritomb useless).

          Clear time: 15:50

          Final Team:
          Spoiler:
          Timid Houndoom
          Shadow Ball|Flamethrower|Nasty Plot|Dark Pulse

          Timid Infernape
          Close Combat|Mach Punch|Flare Blitz|Grass Knot

          Mild Magmortar
          Psychic|Lava Plume|Thunderbolt|Flamethrower

            That awkward moment when you find a shiny nincada during a psychic monotype.

            Anyway, may as well update for Ruby.

              Final Team:
              Spoiler:

              Sorry Achoo, for not becoming the one I wanted at the end. Mega Drain and Dig were good but overall you were the worst. Sorry, buddy but you were the LVP.

              My starter, and she were good even though her stats. She were outshined by Buzz, but I am not dissappointed by her.

              His stat raising moves helped much with Sabrina and Blue. He's a beast and there is nothing to say for him.

              You were the best, buddy. I am grateful for Nintendo to put you early in game in Yellow. I congratulate you for being the MVP.

              Your ATK stat would be useful if you could learn Earthquake but, well, you helped me in many battles. Your vanilla type was useful at sometimes, but you were outshined by your brother.


              And this end the first challenge. I sign Venomoth as my signature bug pokemon, I mean I will get it in my next Bug challenges. Next type alphabetically is...
              Dark which I can't do at Gen I since there is none.
              Then the next is...
              Dragon! It will be a duo Horsea-Dratini challenge. (I don't want this to be a solo so I count Horsea as Dragon which evolves into a Dragon at Gen II)

              You guys need to remember that once you get the first Pokemon of your type, you are no longer allowed to use Pokemon of other types in battle. I'm going to let it slide this time, mostly because Samurott was trying to catch up to his lost challenge, and may have put out a bad example by accident. If you have to painfully grind a Pikachu to lvl 20 to beat Brock, then that's what you have to do. Squirtle should be boxed by that point.

              You can't use Horsea, I'm sorry. It's not a dragon, and does not evolve into a dragon in that game. You can only use Dratini.

                  Oh Monotype thread, how I've missed thee.

                  Sooooo I got bored of HGSS for the time being, so I did my whole Sapphire run :)

                  Ultimate Fighting Monotype Challenge Sapphire First and Final Update :D

                  Name: Huggs
                  Starter: Torchic (I forgot to name him, pretend his name is Kickpunchr)

                  -Blahblahblah caught the next member of the team in Petalburg Woods, Champ the Shroomish.
                  -Roxie was dead simple
                  -Kickpunchr evolved into a Combusken on route 116 north of Rustboro
                  -Caught Belwas the Makuhita in Granite Cave
                  -Brawly went alright. Kickpunchr had Peck, Champ had Leech Seed and Stun Spore, and Belwas could take some hits and got lucky with some Parahax
                  -blahblahblah got to Mauville
                  -On the way through Wattson’s gym, both Champ and Belwas evolved into a Breloom and a Hariyama respectively :)
                  -The fight with Wattson himself wasn’t that bad. Everyone saw a bit of action
                  -blahblahblah Flannery. The fight took a couple shots before I realized I could just get +3 Bulk Ups on Kickpunchr at the beginning and just sweep everything
                  -Breezed through the Norman fight. It was fun trolling his Slakings with Belwas using Dig :P
                  -Kickpunch evolved into a Blaziken on the route just east of Lilycove while training
                  -Caught Dhyana the Meditite on top of Mt. Pyre
                  -Everyone saw some action in the Winona fight, but it was nowhere near as hard as I thought it was going to be
                  -Dhyana evolved into a Medicham while going through the Aqua Hideout
                  -After Dhyana teared through their entire gym with Shadow Ball, the Tate and Liza fight wasn’t even as hard as it should have been. I mean, almost everyone died, and Zigzagoon got to come out at the end and feel important, but the job got done : P
                  -Wallace actually took a couple tries. Damn Milotic.
                  -blahblahblah Victory road sucked.
                  -Trained up, then E3

                  -Belwas and Dhyana tag teamed Sidney
                  -Dhyana and Kickpunchr took out Pheobe with no issue
                  -Dhyana swept most of Glacia, with Walrein the only thing that caused everyone issue
                  -Belwas swept Glacia on his own
                  -Everyone was a life support system for Dhyana and the Drake fight, because of Ice Punch and trolling his Flys with Protect : )
                  -Steven was actually pretty tough. Belwas was the MVP in the fight, Bulk Ups all day : P

                  Update on Ultimate Monotype Challenge (Fire).

                  Update #2 on Black 2.

                  • Defeated Team Plasma and the trainers in the Castelia Sewers, then defeated the Battle Co. as well.
                  • Took on the gym and defeated Burgh without much trouble thanks to my type advantage.
                  • Defeated Colress, then moved on through Route 4 to the Desert Resort, where I caught Darumaka.
                  • Trained her up on trainers I skipped on Route 4, defeated the trainers in Desert Resort, then headed to Nimbasa City.
                  • Tried to take on Elesa, but my team was too weak so I beat some more trainers on Routes 16, Lostlorn Forest, and Route 7.
                  • Was then able to defeat Elesa, and directly afterwards, Magma evolved into Magmar!
                  • Made my way to Driftveil City, where I taught Low Kick to Blazin'.
                  • Took on the gym, and after several tries, was able to survive against Clay to win.
                  • Clay took Hugh and I to the PWT, where I won the Driftveil Tournament, then we went to defeat Team Plasma on their ship.
                  • Went to the Relic Castle via the Relic Passage, where I caught Mothra the Volcarona.
                  • Defeated the trainers in the Relic Passage and Route 6, and Darumaka and Blazin' evolved into Darmanitan and Emboar!
                  • Played the Battle Subway several times on the Multi and Single Train to get a bunch of vitamins and a Life Orb.
                  • Went through Chargestone Cave to Mistralton City, then went up to Celestial Tower to catch Inferno the Litwick.
                  • Defeated all the trainers on Route 7 and in Celestial Tower, then took on the gym.
                  • Skyla wasn't too difficult as I was able to teach Blazin' ThunderPunch for Swanna, who was the only major issue.
                  • Saw that I forgot to name Darmanitan, so I named her Smasher.
                  • Hitched a ride to Lentimas Town, where I saved the game.

                          OK, then. It is finished so I'll just post it.
                          It is done. It was fast :D
                          It turned out to be a solo anyway

                          Won't write it since there was nothing different

                            Okay, I have no idea where I left this challenge, and when I last updated, so I'll just post what I did recently. Yanma evolved after learning AncientPower, which was awesome. I've never used Yanmega before, he looks insanely cool, though!

                            Pryce was difficult. I was counting on Togetic's Fire Blast, but in the end, Crobat and Noctowl carried us through the battle. Clair was a fun battle. Gyarados struggled through her first few Pokémon. I had forgotten to stock up on Hyper Potions, so I had to keep Gyarados just alive with Super Potions. When she sent out Kingdra, I switched to Jumpluff. Sleep Powder, Substitute and Leech Seed. Repeat steps one and two when necessary. And deliver the occasional Headbutt. Watching Kingdra faint slowly, but surely was beautiful. Even the Sitrus Berry and the Full Restore didn't help. Jumpluff, you are a ****ing saint!

                            Anyway, I just beat the Kimono Girls in Ecruteak, and boy, did that turn out unexpectedly difficult. I had to use a second try, because of Jolteon. Second time around, though, I was more or less able to employ the same strategy against Jolteon that I used against Clair's Kingdra. Jolteon was faster than Jumpluff, though, so with a little less success. I managed to pull it off, though, since Jumpluff is my only team member not weak to Thunderbolt.

                            Here's my team so far:

                            It is done. It was fast :D
                            It turned out to be a solo anyway

                            Won't write it since there was nothing different


                            Final Team:
                            Spoiler:

                            This guy is really a beast. He was an overleveled pseudo-legendary at the end which made him a powerhouse. He is the MVP of this challenge. (Like there is another chance )


                            Next type is...
                            Electric, which is my favourite type! (Goin' in yellow of course)
                            You're also supposed to have two Pokemon in your team by the end. For Dragon and Ghost in Kanto, this means double Dragoite and Gengar respectively. I won't hold it against you on this one, since there's only Dragonite, but when you do ghost you need two Pokemon.

                            Also, this isn't an ultimate by my thread's definition, just a lot of singles. So you will find your champion status in the single section.

                              I already saw my bug challenge, and since I broke the rules, please don't count that dragon challenge in. Anyway, I started dragon again, and didn't want to stop electric so I'll do both. And while I was doing that, I saw a GB Emulator in Google Play, so add flying to that, and it makes three!

                              Small details since I will do the update after some time.
                              Electric: For now solo Pikachu but soon I will catch Magnemite (or Voltorb, forgot which one comes first at Yellow but I know they are different in Red and Yellow). 2/8 Badges right now.

                              Dragon: Started Yellow, gave Oak his parcel then gamesharked two Dratinis (Julius and Julien). 0/8 Badges :D

                              Flying: Can't go at 32x speed at phone so it is a bit slow and hard to provide pictures but right now, I have a Charmeleon and a Pidgey and have 1/8 badges.

                                    I can't post pics because my SuperCard is being an a**hole, so I won't be posting pics until I fix it. At least I can transfer saves to my official carts, and pics aren't a big deal anyways. :p

                                    I've made very little progress(just one badge), I was still having trouble with Burgh even though my team was mid 40s, he managed to beat both Lilligant and Serperior, leaving Leavanny to beat 4 Pokemon. I saved on Route 4 right in front of the gate to Nimbasa City.

                                      Upload your pictures somewhere (I use tinypic, just google it) then copy the adress shown after you upload it. Then paste it here. You can ask if you didn't get it :D Also, there are tutorials.

                                      Spoiler:

                                      Julius was on the first challenge, but this time, he is shadowed . Sorry, Julius maybe it's my fault to give you all physical moves.

                                      Julien proved to be better then Julius with the moves like (Jagger) Ice Beam and Thunderbolt. MVP.


                                      Electric is going good, and will get an update soon.
                                      Flying is soooo slow. Maybe not that much but after those 32x and 64x speeds, 4x seems just too slow for me.

                                      Your Profile should have a section for pictures as well. It's what I use anyway for uploading pics.
