Well, I finally picked up a copy of White 2 so now I can finally finish my Normal UMC, so I'll hopefully have an update for that later.

    - Yada yada yada'd my way to Virbank Gym and took Roxie down for the
    Toxic Badge

      Crystal Update, Ultimate Flying Challenge.

      Now that my team was only missing one member it was time to make some moves.
      - Got the medecine and gave it to Amphy
      - Beat Jasmine thanks to Jet and his Surf
      - Took down Chuck with a combination of Hoot, Bruce, and Bounce
      - Arrived in Mahogany Town, and investigated the Lake or Rage
      - Took down Red Gyarados
      - Stormed the Rocket Hideout
      - Defeated Price thanks to Sleep Powder/Leech Seed/Tackle from Jumpluff, and Surfs from Jet
      - Headed through Ice Path and Arrived in Blackthorn
      - Instantly went South and caught my final team member, McFly the Gligar
      - Backtracked to Goldenrod and cleared the Radio Tower, Underground Path, and Radio Tower again
      - Found and Captured Suicune (Boxed)
      - Grinded a bit before Claire
      - Was able to beat Claire after Kingdra was KOed by the ever reliable Sleep Powder/Leech Seed/Tackle combo
      - Grinded everyone up to Level 40
      - Headed to Victory Road
      - Beat ASS
      - Stocked up on Items and took on the Elite 4

      Will: Was relatively easy, Bruce took down both Xatus with Bite (FLINCH HAX) and Exeggutor with Fly, McFly got Jynx with Iron Tail, and Hoot took out Slowbro with Hypnosis and Fly

      Koga: Very easy. Ariados and Venomoth were victims to Bruce's Fly, Crobat was taken down by Jet with Icy Wind who also took down Fortress with Surf. Muk was taken down by Bounce and Sleep/Leech/Tackle

      Bruno: Easiest Battle. Hoot got all the Hitmons with Hypnosis and Fly, Bruce took out Machamp with Fly, and Jet Surfed the Onix

      Karen: Umbreon was annoying. But it eventually went down to Sleep/Leech/Tackle. Jet took care of Murkrow and Houndoom with Icy Wind and Surf respectively. Vileplume and Gengar went down to Fly from Hoot and his Immunity to Ghost Attacks

      Lance: Gyarados went down to Sleep/Leech/Tackle but the rest were taken care of by Jet and a few Full Restores. Icy Wind took care of the 3 effing Dragonites and Surf did in Aerodactyl and Charizard


      Current Team

      Hoot, Level 42
      Fly, Hypnosis, Confusion, Take Down

      Bounce, Level 42

          This challenge looks awesome and I can't wait to try it on my bro's Pokemon Black. Thinking of keeping it poison type and starting off with a Koffing. Challenging idea?

          Update #3 for Bug UMC on Emerald

          • For once, I'm actually deciding to buckle down and make some actual progress this time around. Anyway, headed to Slateport, taking down every trainer in the way.
          • Ran off Team Aqua from Slateport
          • Went and owned May on Route 110
          • Caught Omlette the Illumise
          • Owned Wally
          • Beat all of Mauville's gym trainers, then went to go train my team up to Lv. 25 except Popple since I just about replaced him with Omlette.
          • Got owned by Wattson twice, so I had to go and do some more training...and take advantage of Popple.
          • Trained Queen Bean, Buttermilk, and Omlette up to Lv. 27, and only brought Popple up to Lv. 25 just so I could take advantage of using Shedinja, but soon figured it was pretty useless with the moves it had at the start. Cue more training to bring Shedinja to Lv. 25 just so it could at least do more than 1 HP per use of Cut to Magneton.
          • Finally beat Wattson on my 3rd try. Took long enough, and the battle was pretty unfair on my part nearly the entire time. Just my luck.
          • Made my way to Fallarbor Town, bringing the pain on every trainer in my way.
          • Reached Meteor Falls.
          • Returned to Rustboro City, all the while considering whether I should use Popple or not.
          • Went to Mt. Chimney to own all the Team Magma Grunts
          • Took down Maxie
          • Beat Flannery in Lavaridge Town's gym
          • Returned to Petalburg City and beat Norman
          • Saved on Route 121

          Team Bugsy

          Nature: Quiet
          Ability: Shield Dust

          Queen Bean (Beautifly) Lv. 32 @ Miracle Seed

          Ability: Swarm
          Moves: Morning Sun, Mega Drain, Gust, Stun Spore

          Omlette (Illumise) Lv. 32 @ Blackglasses (Yup, Marriland's Emerald Nuzlocke refrence)
          Nature: Impish
          Ability: Oblivious
          Moves: Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Flatter, Moonlight

          HM Slaves
          Popple - Cut, Flash
          Zigzagoon - Rock Smash, Surf, Strength
          Swablu - Fly when I get it

          While I'm at it, may as well update Normal UMC since I recently started that.

          • Started the game
          • Chose Oshawott as my starter to use as a future slave
          • Beat Josh, my rival in Aspertia City
          • Went and caught Lenora the Patrat on Route 19 once I had access to Poke Balls
          • Went and caught Sadman the Azurill at Floccesy Ranch. I only intend to use Azurill as a challenge within the challenge because I know it has awful stats, and I plan to get an Everstone for it from my Black 2 so it won't evolve to maintain it's Normal type
          • Went and beat Josh again at Floccesy Ranch
          • Went and found the lost Herdier
          • Retured to Floccesy Town to deal with the stuff with Alder
          • Went back to Aspertia to take on the gym
          • Decided to go and train Lenora up to Lv. 12 before tackling Cheren
          • Beat Cheren pretty easily, mostly with the power of spamming Charm and Tail Whip with Sadman to help Lenora take down his Lillipup in one shot with Bite.
          • Got a free TM and the C-Gear from Bianca
          • Traded Sadman over to my Black 2 for about five minutes to go and give it an Everstone
          • Started heading for Virbank City
          • Reached Virbank City and saw the whole thing between Roxie and her dad
          • Went and caught Floter the Pidove in the Virbank Complex
          • Saved in Virbank Complex, mostly because it's intense training time.

            We quickly left Hearthome City for the next Gym, as Murkrow's attitude was beginning to become a problem again. Just outside Solaceon town, Staravia evolved into a beautifully strong Staraptor - and she learned Close Combat! At some point we finally arrived in Veilstone, where we quickly took on the Gym Leader. Staraptor easily sweeped the entire gym, including its leader. With Murkrow back on board, we moved on to Pastoria, picking up a Razor Fang on the road. Tonight is the night, Gligar!

            In Pastoria, the gym proved easy enough. Staraptor was able to plow her way through, more or less by simple, brute force. Tonight we're gonna do a bit of training and pick up a Dusk Stone somewhere. Still, Drifblim is a more than a day away, and by then, it'll have to be put through some serious grinding to catch up. We'll manage, though!

            Current team:


            Staraptor, lv. 41 @ Shell Bell
            Female // Jolly // Intimidate
            - Aerial Ace
            - Close Combat
            - Return
            - Roost

            Gligar, lv. 38 @ Razor Fang
            Male // Careful // Hyper Cutter
            - Rock Tomb
            - Earthquake
            - Faint Attack
            - Swords Dance

            Murkrow, lv. 42 @ Soothe Bell
            Male // Adamant // Super Luck
            - Taunt
            - Astonish
            - Fly
            - Faint Attack
            Currently working on: Fakemon FireRed
            Not finished yet, but complete-ish up until Lavender Town.

            Feel free to check out my old hack: Pekin's Ruby Hack
            Finished and playable, but with fewer features.

                - Hopped on the SS Aqua and arrived in Vermillion.
                - Took down Surge with McFly the Gligar
                - Next took out Sabrina with X the Xatu
                - Headed to Celadon and took out Erika with Hoot the Noctowl and Bruce the Crobat
                - Hopped on the cycling road and Beat Janine with X
                - Took the path to Lavender town
                - Flew back to Saffron and went north to Cerulean
                - Headed to the Power Plant
                - Back to Cerulean and got the Machine Part
                - Headed to the Cape and met and then defeated Misty with Bounce the Jumpluff
                - Back to Vermillion to wake up and KO Snorlax
                - Arrived in Pewter via Diglett Cave
                - Beat brock with Jet the Mantine
                - Headed south through Viridian to Pallet Town and talked to Oak
                - Surfed to Cinnabar and met Blue
                - Surfed to Seafoam and beat Blaine with Jet
                - Flew back to Viridian to earn my final badge and beat Blue as a collective unit
                - Went and saw Oak then headed to Mt. Silver
                - Grinded everyone to level 50
                - Explored Mt. Silver and arrived at Red

                Red was not as hard as I originally thought. McFly was able to pretty much wall Pikachu outside of Quick Attack and eventually wore him down with Slash after a few heals by Red. Next was Blastoise who got outsped and Sleep Powdered then Leech Seeded by Bounce. Then Giga Drain FTW. Charizard was up next and Hoot survived a Flamethrower and hit Charizard with a Hypnosis. Then I switched to Jet and Surfed Charizard to death. After that was Espeon who I managed to get two Night Shades off against with X before succumbing to Psychics. Hoot was able to finish off the job with Hypnosis and Fly. Then out comes Snorlax. F*** Snorlax. I had to stall out Snorlax's Body Slams with Revives and after that I Leech Seeded him and was able to finally (after like 6 Rests) whittle his Defense and HP down with Iron Tails from McFly. After that was Venusaur who Bruce came out and hit with 3 Flys to defeat Red and complete the Johto leg of my Flying Ultimate Monotype!!! Up next is Ruby Version!!

                FINAL TEAM

                X, Level 50
                Fly, Psychic, Night Shade, Flash

                After hours of running around Victory Road trying to bring Mamoswine to the same level as Golem and Quagsire, I went raiding the E4 and won. Oddly enough, I had the most difficulty against Koga while Lance went down extremely easy. Cubone, unfortunately, is the same level as when I caught it. I'll have to spend all my time in Kanto bringing him up to speed.

                  "Happy Birthday, Monotype Challenge!"

                  I'll be adding a Houndour to my Dark-Mono playthrough of Emerald, speaking of, here's an update:

                  Ultimate Dark-Mono Challenge: Emerald

                  - Started the game, caught a "Poochyena" just until I catch a "Sableye" then I'm dropping it

                  - Trained Useless until it learned Bite, then beat Roxanne for the
                  Stone Badge

                  - Went to Dewford and caught a Sableye, then dropped Useless off in my PC

                  - After a bit of training, challenged and easily beat Brawly for the
                  Knuckle Badge

                  - Went to Slateport, beat Team Aqua, beat May, then arrived in Mauville and had an okay fight with Wattson for the
                  Dynamo Badge

                  - Skipped all the way to Meteor Falls, then came back around and beat Team Magma

                  - Went south to Lavaridge and beat Flannery for the
                  Heat Badge

                  Well, I guess I'll hack in my Houndour and catch my Cacnea when I play again.

                        I'm gonna start a second ultimate run, since doing just water can get really repetitive.

                        I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

                          I'll be hacking in a Bulbasaur for Liquid Crystal it will be level 1 and be as if hatched from an egg (no special moves or whatever... no stats edits... just entered into the game via gameshark as a random encounter forced to be as the next encounter)
                          Anyways I completed FireRed here are some pics

                          I've got to say though.... doing it so underleveled cost me a LOT of revives/hyper potions. I spent probably 30 Revives on my Rival alone. I had to revive through Psychic until it ran out of PP lol. (thank god that it does run out in this game)
                          MvP is definitely Gengar... he was a BEAST and had the highest SP.Attack
                          Whelp. On to the next game.

                            Wow, its been a while, eh (got my psn back online, so, yeah). Finally, here is my 3th Update for Johto. Sleeping near a cave is not easy, espically with zubats hanging out near. After a lot of annoyance from Zubats, my Pokemon decide they had enough. I couldn't argue with them, and besides that, time passed by fast. Going through Union Cave was easy, although I did lose some PP. The hiker outside of the Union Cave almost fainted Loyal, but with careful switching, the hiker went down. In Azalea Town, there was nothing to do, even the gym was blocked off, but I heard of a someone named Kurt, who made Pokeballs apricons (I think that what they are :p). I honestly headed over there to see if he could give me some donuts. Apparently, he was more worried about the slowpokes that were missing than food, then mentioned Team Rocket. That got me worked up, no wonder the Slowpoke Well was blocked off, but now they have purple hair. Heading over to Slowpoke Well, I kicked rocket ass and Kurt took me back to his house. He did have donuts after all. That guy blocking the gym even left. The gym, well, that is self-explanitory. Loyal solo'd Bugsy, it was that easy. However, my rival's a different story. Derp wanted to know where Team Rocket was, and when I told him the truth, he said I lied and challenged me. Tyson fainted to Croconaw after defeating Gastly. Loyal almost fainted as well, but with a critical hit bite and a bit of flinch hax, Croconaw went down. With healing, Loyal defrated Zubat, with some difficultly, Confusion hax is quite annoying, is it not. Finally, Derp was brought down after an exhausting battle. Finally, I chased a Farfetch'd back to its owner, obtaining Cut. Caught a Sandshrew because Rattata fails at what I'M intended him to do. Oh well, and happy birthday, but no hacking for me, as it is kinda unfair and takes some fun away. That is just my prespective. Anyway, my current party is: Tyson the Quilava(M) Lvl.18 with: Tackle, Leer, Smokescreen, and Ember; and Loyal the Growlithe(M) Lvl.17 with: Bite, Roar, and Ember. Any moveset suggestions are always welcome, and good luck to anyone attempting this challenge. See you later. Oh, and here's another thing: I still have an account on my black 2, and I just started ev training a Speed Boost Blazekin :D. I'll eventually have a team ready, so if anyone wants to battle me one day, I can give you my friend code. :D Anyway, yeah, see you later.

                              Happy Birthday, Monotype Challenge!

                              I'm only going to take advantage of this on Black 2 for Deino (I don't want to wait 'til Victory Road).
                              I'm going to trade it in from my Storage White 2 at the same time as Larvitar (I already got Necrum's approval on this), both as Eggs.

                              Dark Update 2: Emerald 5/8

                              Here's my team so far:

                              Flannery is so annoying, I hate that Attract and Overheat+White Herb combo.
                              I'll probably have another update tonight or tomorrow.

                              See you later.

                                I think I'll take advantage of this and start up a ghost challenge.

                                I'll start with LeafGreen and hack in a Shuppet as my starter.

                                    Now that I have recovered from my explosion after my save file corrupted, I am going to give this another go. ^__^

                                    Also, "Happy Birthday Monotype Challenge!" I will take advantage of this by hacking in a Cascoon. (I want to ensure that I get a Dustox, rather than a Beautifly)

                                      I have decided to do SoulSilver instead of Liquid Crystal. I will be using the Birthday code as i've previously stated in my other post or if you didn't see it "Happy Birthday Monotype Challenge!" on Toxicroak instead (Croagunk at lvl 1 which will eventually be Toxicroak)
                                      My next update will be after the first or second gym.

                                          Bug Monotype Single Run (SoulSilver): Update #1


                                          - Did the standard beginning events (went to Mr. Pokemon's house, etc.)
                                          - Caught a female Ledyba (Level 4)
                                          - Dumped Totodile into the PC
                                          - PokeGen'd a male Cascoon (level 3) into my ".ds1" file (due to the birthday "special", or "clause".)
                                          - Grinded both pokemon to level 12 on Route 30 (Cascoon evolved into Dustox)
                                          - Continued North along the route towards Violet City
                                          - Healed up in Violet City, then headed into the Bellsprout Tower.
                                          - Annihilated every sage in the tower.
                                          - Used an escape rope and exited the tower.
                                          - Headed to Falkner's gym, and easily beat the gym trainers.
                                          - Defeated Valkner.
                                          (Rating: Absolute Destruction/5 )
                                          - Picked up the Togepi egg in the Pokemart, and dumped it in the PC right after
                                          - Headed south; exiting Violet City.
                                          - Followed the route, beating trainers left and right
                                          - Entered Union Cave, and dodged as many trainers as possible (My team doesn't have the movesets to take on Rock types quite yet)
                                          - Exited the Union Cave, and headed west towards Azalea town, defeating the few trainers that were there.
                                          - Healed up, then went straight to the Ilex Forest.
                                          - Caught a male Paras
                                          - Grinded Paras by 12 levels to catch him up with the other pokemon (Level 17)
                                          - Went to Kurt's house to be enlightened about the wonders of apricorns; he darted out the door to go save the Slowpokes
                                          - I followed him, and stood outside the well, and saved.
