Ok, I have been slacking on this challenge for a while. It's just that, with school in the way, it's been hard to get any progress done. Plus, I got a new computer for my birthday on August 6, and my old computer want to family. So, the hard drive got wiped, including my save data. I did still make progress on it, though. I think I had a Combusken and a Beautifly. Do I still get entered for the Swablu? If not, I understand. See you later!

Well it took a while but I sat down throughout the week and pretty much put this thing on blast. I'm really happy I chose platinum to do this challenge in, since it's actually made me see how cool a region Sinnoh is as a whole and what fun villains Team galactic are.

Things I learned:

- You can get Earthquake before the 3rd Gym on this game. Snatch it
- Platinum is really kind with giving you good places to level up actually.
- Rhydon is the ultimate clutchmon
- Altaria's usefulness skyrockets the moment you get Dragon Claw. Ingame Roost + Dragon Dance wants something to abuse it.
- Everything that can poison you, will posion you

Rick (Walrein) ♂ | The Mascot | Level 65
Relaxed Nature | Ice Body
Surf | Encore | Hail | Blizzard

Camellia (Roserade) ♀ | The Alabamian | Level 63
Bashful Nature | Poison Point
Giga Drain | Growth | Leech Seed | Stun Spore

Terry (Rotom) | The Band Member | Level 68
Bold Nature | Levitiate
Discharge | Shadow Ball | Substitute | Overheat

Lui (Togetic) ♂ | The Plushie | Level 60
Brave Nature | Serene Grace
Return | Encore | Wish | Yawn

Roxanne (Rhydon) ♀ | The Striker | Level 66
Rash Nature | Rock Head
Swords Dance | Earthquake | Stone Edge | Strength

Juli (Altaria) ♀ | The Petil | Level 63
Quiet Nature | Natural Cure
Dragon Dance | Roost | Fly | Dragon Claw

Only at Lavender Town so far but I'll probably finish the rest today. Can I just say that only having one Pokémon with a move that can deal decent damage Graveler/Onix is a pain.

Liam (Pikachu) Lv28.
Moves: Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Slam, Thunder Wave.

Sydian (Nidorina) Lv30.
Moves: Scratch, Poison Sting, Bubblebeam, Double Kick.

Harry (Fearow) Lv28.
Moves: Peck, Mirror Move, Leer, Fury Attack.

Zayn (Onix) Lv25.
Moves: Tackle, Screech, Bind, Rock Throw.

Okay guys. I just did the update, and when I was going through, I noticed a lot of people started omitting the raffle part of the sign up, which makes me wonder if people didn't know it was there or they just didn't want to be in, but didn't let me know. This is why I need people to fill out the sign up forms exactly as I post them, guys. And I had a lot of people say "Oh I'll edit in my FC later" and I never saw it. I'm not going to draw the raffle winners just yet. I'm going to give everyone that didn't sign up for the raffle or didn't post their FC one day to VM me letting me know if you want to be in on the raffle and I'll edit it in.

Whether you want in on the raffle or not, I need everyone to check the list and make sure they are listed correctly. If you have a star by your username, it means you're in the raffle. If you are not in the champion list and need to be there, please VM me with a link to your final update. I ain't about that searching life. If you don't notify me by the deadline, then too bad, too sad.

And for some good news, Mac did our raffle prizes and they're simply amazing! Can't wait to draw the tickets, so please, if I missed anything in your sign up and messed up somewhere, VM me and let me know!

Double posting because I can, and I'm opening the thread again for a few days cause now we have the winners!

The three winners of the Swablu are:
jszeide, 11wildy, and Samurott01!

And the winner of the Altaria is...


Congratulations, you guys! As I said in the previous post, Mac RNGed these beauties (click on their name for a link to their Pokecheck page), so please make sure you thank him and tell him he did a great job! The Swablu have a preset name already, but Kravex, make sure you let me know what name you want for your Altaria (or if you don't want one, that's cool too) so that Mac can name it. Unfortunately, I'm still going to be busy for a while before I'll be able to trade the Swablu to the winners. I also have to get them from Mac first, so we'll jump that hurdle when we get there, haha.

Thank you all for your patience and for participating! As soon as the emblem for this challenge gets uploaded, you'll all be getting one! Thanks for everything, guys! Hope you enjoyed this challenge, and again, congratulations to the winners of the raffle! :)
