Do you guys know how annoying it is to make it through Rock Tunnel without Flash and relying on pure memory? I actually meant to go and grab it after defeating Surge but forgot (forgot to grab Mr. Mime too, actually) and had to use the walls and trainers to get a vague idea of where everything is. Replaying the game a good 100 times is good for something apparently. Anyhow, now I'm at the Pokemon Tower trying to beat off Team Rocket. Here's hoping a Cubone shows up! Dex reasons, not team. No Rainbow Badge yet. I wanna get Venonat and Tentacool before fighting her.

    Volt White Grass Update

    I have another update, I've been playing a lot more since I got past Burgh.

    I've made it to Opelucid and took a break, when I start again, I'll fight Iris. My levels are so high because of Brycen.

        Grass Update/Electric Signup

        I've been a lot more lately since there's nothing else to do, and I'm almost done, so that means I have to think of what monotype I should do next, and think I'll do electric next.

        Anyways, I changed SacredGold to Crystal.
        I've finished Volt White and I'm halfway through Crystal.
        I hated Alder and all of Crystal so far, the 2 gen games are so tough on Grass types.
        I also hated that I didn't get a Leaf and Sun stone until after beating Clair.

          My computer seems to be giving me issues since my move yesterday, so if I can get it running properly, I'll update the thread later.

          In the mean time, I started my bug mono for Johto in Silberne Edition, which is the German version of SoulSilver. After a lot of grinding, I got ledyba to evolve, and managed to defeat Falkner. I chose chikorita so my rival will have a fire starter, like I did with LeafGreen.

          For that, I worked on my water mono in blue version, where I managed to defeat Blaine with minimal effort.

            Yes, I know I still have to finish my Normal UMC, but my White Version isn't working anymore, so until I can get an emulator that'll actually run smoothly on my slow computer like my VBA or I get a copy of Black (which I might be getting on my birthday next week), I'll have to leave it on hold. And...I lost my Pearl Version, so I hope to also get Platinum. Anyway, for now, I'll just tackle another type and cross the bridge of "unable to do anything until I can solve my lack of Gen 4 and Gen 5 games problem" when the time comes.

            And luckily, I don't have to start on LeafGreen anymore. I'll start with Emerald first this time around. I've always wanted to see Beautifly's potential since I used Dustox in a nuzlocke run. Anyway, I'll have an update up pretty soon. Sorry about all the rambling...it happens

              I'm so sorry Necrum that I'm posting about this now, but I have been busy.

              My phone broke and when I got the replacement, My Mono-type Challenge files were gone So, with that I must withdraw (that is, if you haven't already removed me from the challenge). I have no idea if I will start again, but for now just remove me from the challenge.

              Sorry again, especially if this caused you any trouble.

              I only remove inactive people if they sign up and then don't post again. Otherwise, I only take people off if they ask to be, which you are. I'll take you off when I update the thread. Sorry to see you go. Hope you come back and do this challenge again!

                      Necrum I don't mean to correct you but I am not in the ultimate challengers.

                      Edit: This REALLY sucks! I am at Cyrus right before you save the legendary trio and all three of his pokemon are super effective to mine! EVEN WORST! Guess what his team is when I get to the distortion world?

                      Honchcrow
                      Houndoom
                      Weavile
                      Crobat
                      and a Gyrados that knows ice fang... I'm scared O-O

                      Edit... 2

                      Oh. That's weird. I put you in Single by mistake. I'm quite certain you've been there for a while too. I'll fix it. I probably just wasn't paying attention when I added you.

                        So here we go

                        Pokemon Red
                        Flying

                        • Named myself Adam, named Rival Connor
                        • Picked Charmander since it evolves into Charizard, named him Vesuvius
                        • Done all the stuff for the dex, got me some balls. Found a Pidgey on Route 1, caught her and called her Flutter.
                        • Went to grind up in Viridian, caught a Caterpie and called him Denzel. Quickly leveled him into a Butterfree.
                        • Begun to grind for Brock.
                        • Ground them all to Level 15
                        • Went to face off against Brock and....
                        • I won, Denzel was the MVP of that match since his PoisonPowder and Confusion swept them both.
                        • Switch out Flutter and Vesuvius so they could get a level each and Vesuvius evolved into Charmeleon
                        • Saved and ended for today.

                          My Team:
                          Vesuvius the Charmeleon

                          Flutter the Pidgey

                          Denzel the Butterfree

                          You are not required by the rules to post a video, just so you know. But asking about uploading in here isn't the place. You are free to post a video of your challenge, however make sure it's embedded and placed in a spoiler. As much as I hate to say it though, I don't think anyone would watch it in here. It'd be better to just update normally like everyone else. But if you have more questions on uploading videos, it doesn't belong here.

                                Okay, it's been a while but I've finally started the White portion of my Ultimate Ice-Mono Challenge, here's my first update.
                                -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Ultimate Ice-Mono Challenge: White

                                - Started up file, called myself Aokiji and chose Snivy for extra challange with Cheren
                                - Did the beginning crap and beat Chili earning me the
                                Trio Badge

                                - Traded in a Cryogonal egg and hatched it (No special moves breed onto it) naming it Stasis
                                - Made my way to Nacrene city and easily defeated Lenora for the
                                Basic Badge

                                - Did the Pinwheel Forest quest then crossed the Skyarrow Bridge
                                - Chased Team Plasma then had a pathetic battle with Burgh for the
                                Insect Badge
                                ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                That's it for now, Cryogonal has definitely proven that it can be awesome, Cheren's tepig? No problem!
