Ultimate Fighting Monotype Challenge: Black White Version
7/8

So I continued from where I left off, after I finally received my Save Dongle, and traveled through the Chargestone Cave and then remembered that I have to go to Celestial Tower before fighting Skyla. Skyla herself was pretty hard, considering that her Swanna is freaking insane. Then came Twist Mountain, which I hate and am so glad to be past it. Brycen was a cake walk. Now I'm in Dragonspiral Tower hunting Team Plasma.

      You can't use it in battle, but releasing is unnecessary. Just box it, unless you want to release it.

      Thanks again... I'll get started on FireRed right away. It's not like having more than 6 Pokemon will matter though, as in FireRed I can only catch 5 Bug Types. (Butterfree, Beedrill, Parasect, Venomoth, and Syther)

      So you want to know why I'm a fish? Well, I'm not going to tell that to everyone... the common knowledge might destroy society...

      Here's a few updates on some random monotypes I've been working on that I've already started (Flying and Steel to be exact). I'll keep the updates short, mainly because I did these a few weeks ago and honestly don't remember enough of the details to have huge updates. Also, I'd like to get started on another monotype on Y, but I want to transfer over my Dragon team first.. So I'll either have to wait until Bank comes out or until I fell the motivation to ask someone in the trade corner to help me out.

      Flying
      Diamond - I've worked my way through the first five gyms, and I've caught all of my team. I do remember struggling with Roark (I had to spam Double Team and wait to get lucky enough to finally win), but other than that it's been smooth sailing!
      Team:
      Staraptor / lv35 / Close Combat, Double Team, Quick Attack, Aerial Ace
      Drifblim / lv35 / Gust, Fly, Payback, Ominous Wind
      Mothim / lv35 / Gust, Psybeam, Hidden Power (Rock), Confusion
      Murkrow / lv35 / Wing Attack, Night Shade, Assurance, Faint Attack

      Black 2 - An even less exciting update here, as I haven't really had any issues up to where I am now. So far, I've made it through the first four gyms, and right now I'm in Route 6 working on training my freshly caught Ducklett before taking on Clay in the Driftveil Gym.
      Team:
      Unfezant / lv33 / Air Slash, Roost, Air Cutter, Return
      Sigilyph / lv33 / Psywave, Tailwind, Air Cutter, Psybeam
      Mandibuzz / lv33 / Pluck, Punishment, Return, Faint Attack
      Ducklett / lv24 / Water Pulse, Aerial Ace, BubbleBeam, Aqua Ring

      Pokemon ?? Version
      Steel
      Ruby - Right now, I've made it up to Mauville and I'm training a little bit before taking on Watson. I had a little bit of trouble with Brawly, but I was sure to be a little overleveled so he wasn't too big of an issue.
      Team:
      Mawile / lv26 / Vicegrip, Faint Attack, Astonish, Bite
      Aron / lv26 / Metal Claw, Headbutt, Mud-Slap, Take Down

        would like to withdraw this challenge, due to lack of time to finish it, not be able to play at least 3 weeks, and knowing that the challenge ultimate will add the kalos region later this month, I not be able to meet the requirements to finish, thank you very much.

              Ultimate Water Challenge, Firered LeafGreen part 2
              Spoiler:
              Traveled through Mt. Moon, grabbed the Dome fossil this time like I wanted to.
              Beat Rival (Cerulean City).
              Went through the Nugget Bridge until the end. Returned to Cerulean, left Chelone(Wartortle) in the box so I only had Noriko (magikarp), used all my money on items, and lost against the Rocket Grunt who gives you the nuggets again and again. Did this until Noriko had finally gleaned enough experience from defeating the Ekans every now and then to evolve. Ended up with around 16 nuggets.
              While traversing Rt. 24, accidentally trapped the Secret Power TM behind the trainer blocking it. Too bad, I wanted to teach that to Noriko.
              Challenged Cerulean Gym, defeated Misty, obtained Cascade Badge.
              Who gives you the SS Ticket, again? I do not remember receiving that thing. Either way, cleaned out the SS Anne.
              Went back and got Secret Power for Noriko.
              At this point I realized you don't really NEED to defeat Surge just yet, and I ran through or past everything up to Celadon City, got myself an Eevee (Damon), and evolved it into Vaporeon.
              While I was at it, got the Tea and earned access to Saffron.
              Am now working my way back through... everywhere and wrapping things up. Preparing to challenge Surge's gym.


              DOUBLE UPDATE COMBO

              Ultimate Water Challenge, SoulSilver part 1
              Spoiler:
              Obtained Totodile from Elm, named Ridley.
              Did all the boring errands for Elm.
              Challenged Sprout Tower, cleaned the place out
              Challenged Violet Gym, obtained Zephyr Badge. Falkner's Pidgey provided no resistance, but his Pidgeotto got Ridley down to 1 HP.
              Obtained Geodude for a HM slave
              Obtained Fishing Rod, hooray
              Went back to Cherrygrove, Caught Krabby, named Dave
              Obtained Wooper, named Brian (Rt. 32)


              Oh, also I have a question. When the new thread appears next month, do all of us current challengers have to start over, or do we just get shifted over?

                Second Sapphire update. This time span was so annoying. Training a Zubat that only knows Supersonic and Leech Life isn't an easy task.

                Log:
                Spoiler:
                -Defeated Team Aqua grunt in Rusturf tunnel and retrieved the Devon goods.

                -Got a PokeNav from the President
                -Travelled to Dewford Town with Mr. Briney (How do you fit in that boat???)
                -Obtained an old rod
                -Set the trendy phrase to: "Nosepass is too weak", because why not.
                -Caught a Tentacool on route 106 and named it Jam.
                -Obtained HM05 (Flash) in Granite Cave
                -Caught a Zubat in Granite Cave and named it Tinywings (Don't ask me why. It was my first Zubat's nickname, and I named it when I was ten. So I've kind of stuck with it.)
                -Trained Tinywings and Jam
                -Took on Dewford Gym
                -Defeated Brawly's Makuhita using Dustfly's confusion. Got the Knuckle Badge
                -Taught Treeko flash
                -Delivered Steven's letter
                -Taught Tinywings Steel Wing

                    Ultimate Water Challenge, FireRed LeafGreen part 3
                    Spoiler:

                    Challenged Vermillion Gym finally. By now Surge was laughably easy. Shock Waves didn't even hit Damon (Vaporeon) for a tenth of his health. Obtained... Dynamo Badge?
                    Cleaned out the Team Rocket hideout, also laughably easy, since I had gotten Hyper Beam for Noriko (Gyarados). Chelone evolved into Blastoise sometime around now. Giovanni was incredibly easy.
                    Challenged Celadon Gym. With Hyper Beam on Noriko and Aurora Beam on Damon, this gym was much easier than last time, but not quite laughably so. Obtained Rainbow Badge.
                    Returned to Lavender, started ascending the tower.
                    Beat Rival (Pokemon Tower), which was really easy when you're ten levels higher than him.
                    Got the Poke Flute from Mr. Fuji. Went south of Lavender, got Snorlax out of the way, and finally obtained the Super Rod.
                    Obtained Staryu, named Messier. (Pallet Town)
                    Obtained Poliwag, named Lee. (Viridian City)
                    Went through Safari Zone, obtained Surf and Strength.
                    Challenged Fuchsia Gym, obtained Soul Badge. Went fairly well- I just surfed everything to death.
                    Headed to Saffron to clean out Silph Co. Holy crap the first scientist nearly swept my team. Its Magneton kept paralyzing things and then getting them to low health before I could even hit it. Noriko damaged it with Twister before fainting, and then Damon took it out with Quick Attack finally. After that the rest of Silph Co. was easy.
                    Defeated Rival (Silph Co.) with no effort.
                    Defeated Giovanni again, saved Silph and obtained the Master Ball.
                    Challenged Saffron Gym, defeated Sabrina without much difficulty, obtained Marsh Badge.
                    Arrived in Cinnabar.

                      I'm back--in Black! (insert guitar solo here)
                      Blaze Black Update:
                      I was successful in defeating Clay and getting my 5th badge, however it did take 4 attempts and a long grind to level 50 to all of my pokemon to even stand a chance and then I ended with only 1 pokemon left (gengar) who survived the attack that 1 shot everyone else and happened to knock out the last 3 of his pokemon.
                      I am progressing slowly but surely, now that I'm done with kalos until I add it to my challenge after my wife beats it I will work on cracking out some more of my poison challenge.

                      6th Update, Rock Challenge on Platinum:
                      -made it to Celestic Town, training Rhyhorn along the way
                      -showed Cyrus that 11 year olds are the most dangerous things to plans of world domination
                      -got the HM for Surf
                      -beat the few trainers to the west of Celestic Town
                      -explored the rest of Wayward Cave when I realized that it doesn't require Strength
                      -caught a Finneon to surf on
                      -explored some new places that are only Surf accessible
                      -evolved Graveler into Golem
                      -made my way to Canalave City
                      -visited Iron Island, got the HM for Strength, did some training with Riley, and beat a pair of Galactic goons
                      -Took on the Steel gym, which wasn't hard (except for that one guy's Scizor). Just spam Earthquake.
                      -was instructed to go to Lake Valor, since Team Galactic felt the best way to drain the water out was via a bomb

                        My classmates playing PokeMMO made me feel like playing some pokemon again. So Im starting 2 challenges:

                        - The Unova part of my Ultimate Water Challenge i started when i joined 2.5 years ago. White 2
                        - An electric Kanto, continuing my list of Kanto monotypes with the hardest of them all. Fire Red

                        Here is my first update for electric:

                        - Started the game as "Blitz" with my rival "Slowpo"
                        - Picked, as per my personal rule, the water starter when no starter was going on my team. Named it "Surfboard"
                        - Went ahead and caught a Pikachu, naming it "Emile"
                        - Grinded a TON for Brock, and it still came down to struggle and 8 potions -_____-


                        - Trudged through Mt Moon as fast as my not very effective Quick Attacks could. Being horribly overleveled helped.
                        - Thunderbolted Misty
                        - Did stuff, got Cut
                        - After getting Magnitude OHKO'ed twice, i made it to route 10 where i caught "Tim" the Voltorb (Anyone who watches them should see where the names are coming from now )

                        Team:

                        Emile, lv 37 Pikachu

                        Thunderbolt, Dig, Mega Punch
                        "Soloing with Pikachu was incredibly simple, albeit slow at times. But it all changed when the Magnitude Geodudes attacked."

                        Tim, lv 18 Voltorb

                        Sonicboom
                        "Just got him, he doesn't even have an electric attack yet. Might teach him Shock Wave soon."

                        Water monotype - Sapphire
                        Finally, another too-long monotype done! This one I actually started probably 2 years ago and I had completely forgotten about it until last summer at some point. Anyhow, I finally defeated the champion after losing 3 of my team to his stupid Cradily.

                        Final team:

                          Blaze Black update:
                          I got the jet badge and was equally levelled with the gym leader. The three on three battle was enough to get my pokemon knocked out twice but the third time I was able to organize a strat that did more damage to more pokemon per round, namely icy wind and air cutter. I only have 2 badges to go and at a full team of 56's I hope the end game elite 4 and ending champ aren't all level 100.

                          I'm going to take a short break from normal pokemon and work on my delta species challenge. I'll be back sooner than my last break.

                          7th Update, Rock Challenge on Platinum:
                          -as per Rowan's request, I went to Lake Valor to see what happened. Wrecked some Galactic grunts and Saturn
                          -Flew on down to Lake Verity to save Lucas and Rowan's asses from Team Galactic, beating Mars again.
                          -headed off to Snowpoint City, going through Mt.Coronet and the freezing cold on the way (cold in real life, cold in the game, god I hate the cold)
                          -got the HM for Rock Climb
                          -Rhyhorn evolved into Rhydon, taught it Surf and Hammer Arm
                          -bumped into my rival, who informed me of what I already knew: I'd need to beat the Snowpoint gym to use Rock Climb so I could get to Lake Acuity
                          -Challenged the Snowpoint Gym. The regular gym trainers were easy. Lotta them had pokes slower than Rhydon (you know you're slow when Rock types outspeed you), who swatted them aside with Hammer Arms and Rock Blasts. Candice proved to be a better opponent. I lost to her the first time (which I guess is what happens when 3 of your 5 Rock pokes are also part Ground). Her Abomasnow and Piloswine, of all things, gave me the most trouble. Beat her in round 2 since I was more aware of what she could do. And items help too, of course. The match ended up being Probopass vs Froslass. Fortunately, Probes's high Sp.Defense (so glad it has a Sassy nature) and typing made it take little damage from her attacks, but I had to use Shock Wave becauese of hail+Snow Cloak+Double Team. Several Super Potions and many Shock Waves later, I had the Icicle Badge in my frozen, digital little fingers.
                          -Scaled the cliff and enter Lake Acuity just in time to see my rival get beaten by Jupiter
                          -got the hell outta the freezing cold of northern Sinnoh and went to a few places that are Rock Climb accessible
                          -went to Veilstone to deal with Team Galactic, but decided to first go gamble at the Game Corner (taking down a criminal organization can wait, right?). Wasn't doing well until I got a lucky streak. Unfortunately, 842 Coins isn't enough to buy any of the Game Corner's prizes...

                              Ultimate Water Challenge, Firered Leafgreen part 4
                              Spoiler:
                              Went through the Pokemon Mansion, obtained the Secret Key.
                              Challenged Cinnabar Gym, obtained Volcano Badge. Blaine was so laughably easy I don't even think he landed a hit.
                              For a sixth and final team member, unboxed the Lapras from Silph Co. and named Laplace.
                              Challenged Viridian Gym, wiped the floor with Giovanni one last time, and obtained the Earth badge.
                              Went through the Seafoam Islands, murdered Articuno.
                              Went to the Power Plant, murdered Zapdos.
                              Went off to the Sevii Islands, did a bunch of stuff, found and murdered Moltres.
                              Returned to Route 22, defeated Rival.
                              Entered Victory Road, came out the other side.

                              I finally use some TMs to finalize movesets, which also involved buying tons of coins from the game corner for Ice Beams.
                              Chelone: Surf, Ice Beam, Bite, Return
                              Noriko: Dragon Dance, Secret Power, Hyper Beam, Surf
                              Damon: Surf, Ice Beam, Bite, Quick Attack
                              Lee: Brick Break, Earthquake, Body Slam, Surf
                              Messier: Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, Thunder
                              Laplace: Ice Beam, Hydro Pump, Body Slam, Shock Wave

                              Elite Four
                              Lorelei
                              Brick Break, Shock Wave, and Thunder managed to wreck her team without too much trouble.
                              Bruno
                              Surf and Psychic made short work of him. Mega Kick came close to giving us trouble but Hitmonlee fell before that could happen.
                              Agitha
                              Arbok and Golbat fell to Messier's Psychic, the Ghosts fell to Bites from Chelone and Damon.
                              Lance
                              Ice Beams all across the board.


                              VS GARRY
                              Laplace felled Pidgeot in two ice beams without taking too much damage.
                              Rhydon falls in one hit to Chelone's Surf.
                              Messier takes out Venusaur with two Psychics before it can get a Solarbeam off.
                              Arcanine was a bit harder. Extremespeed hits Damon for around a third of his health, but Surf knocks it into the red. Garry used all four Full Restores on the dang thing before I managed to take it down. It gets off a second Extremespeed, though.
                              Alakazam's Psychic hits Noriko hard. Noriko Dragon Dances. Noriko Hyper Beams and 1HKO's it.
                              Garry's last pokemon- Gyarados. Messier's Thunder knocks off a massive chunk of its health and paralyzes it. It Thrashes, Messier takes heavy damage. Garry heals (guess I miscounted those Full Restores), but the next Thunder hits as well. Ice Beam for the KO.


                              And that's game!

                              Only 4 days until this thread closes and the new one goes up. If anyone has a 5th gen Ultimate that's close to completion I suggest you wrap that up soon and get your post in, because at midnight Pacific standard time Feb 1 I will be posting the new thread.

                                  Just to make sure, will i be able to bring my old ultimates of Bug and Water? (1 finished, 1 started 5th gen a few days ago and wont get to finish here) I intend to play them through 6th gen when PokeBank is eventually released.

                                  Also, will single champs from this thread be listed in the new thread?

                                  I wish you could farm Team Rocket. That said, after their lair got cleaned out, I went and stomped Erika to bits and did the same to Koga. I tried to beat Sabrina but she proceeded to flatten me. Several times. So yeah, I threw up my arms and went after Blaine. Don't think I'm ready for him yet... his minions have 'mon the same level as mine so I'm pretty sure I'm underleveled.
