Also, will single champs from this thread be listed in the new thread?
All progress from this thread can be moved to the new one. You just have to fill out a new sign up which will include a part where you can say you have previous progress. As for the other question, if you are playing on the new thread I will move your singles over. Ultimates will stay on this page and will be linked to in the new thread for the sake of keeping everything recorded.

    Poison monotype - Quick update

    So I thought I already cleared out Silph Co... turns out I didn't. Well now it really IS cleared and I ended sweeping past Sabrina. Which was probably just as well since I'm way overleveled at this point. Currently marching towards Giovanni. Planning to do a sweep of the Power Plant afterwards to get some last levels in before marching towards the E4. Yep, life.

    Ultimate Water Monotype Challenge: Silver
    6/8

    Just beat Chuck finally. He was ANNOYING. But I did it. I'm kinda sick and don't feel like doing much in the way of updating but I wanted to say I got the badge. Hopefully I can come up with another game to trade with. I want that Slowking and Kingdra!

        I beat like 5 gyms in the time frame of one week. god, I'm underleveled. around 35 when the wild are around 40. never underestimare type advantage.

        I now have 7/8 gyms finished. cyrus was a pain in the but, he may as well be a flying gym leader (honcrow, gyarados, crobat, and weavile).

        TEAM:

        SCISSOR

        Level 36
        -Sing
        -X-Scissor
        -Strength
        -Aerial Ace

        MOTHOX

        Level 34
        -Moonlight
        -Shadow Ball
        -Sludge Bomb
        -Giga Drain

        BEAUTIFREE

        Level 36
        -Mega Drain
        -Silver Wind
        -Morning Sun
        -Psychic

        HONEY

        Level 36
        -Heal Order
        -Slash
        -Power Gem
        -Toxic

        SUPER BUG

        Level 39
        -Strength
        -Shadow Claw
        -Close Combat
        -Dig

        I was happy when my first honey tree was a combee... a lot more so when my second was a heracross. was also hoping for a burmy, but oh well.

          Ultimate Water Monotype, Platinum part 1
          Spoiler:

          Started the game, named character Triton.
          Obtained Piplup from Rowan.
          Beat Rival (Rt.201).
          Named Piplup Bering.
          Ran back and forth for no real reason other than extending the length of the game.
          Caught Bidoof, named Frank (Rt.202)
          Got to Jubilife, Did some errands for no real reason other than extending the length of the game.
          Beat Rival (Rt.203).
          Arrived in Oreburgh, grinded in the Mines until Bering and Frank had evolved.
          Challenged Oreburgh Gym, Wiped the floor with Roark, obtained the Coal Badge.

          Returned to Jubilife and owned our very first Galactic noobs.
          Obtained Psyduck (Ravaged Path), named Misty.
          Obtained Buizel (Valley Windworks), named Jessica.
          Obtained Shellos (Valley Windworks), named Maury.
          Beat up some more Galactic peons, fought Mars. Zubat Toxics Jessica but we take it down quickly. Mars' godsdamned Purugly smashes everything on my team with critical Scratches and Faint Attacks except Jessica, who finally KOs it with Quick Attack.
          Traveled through Eterna Forest with Cheryl.
          Arrived in Eterna City, grinded a ton.
          Challenged Eterna Gym. Gardenia was crazy hard. Bering gets in a Pluck before Turtwig Reflects, then we set up Stealth Rocks. Bering loses a lot of health to Razor Leafs before KOing it. Cherrim finishes off Bering and takes out Jessica before Frank manages to take it out with Headbutt. Roserade was actually the easiest- went down to two Hyper Fangs. Got the Forest Badge.

          Cleaned out Galactic Eterna building. Jupiter wasn't too hard, Skuntank went down to Pluck and Bubblebeam.
          Got a bicycle~!
          Arrived in Hearthome City. Currently training to prepare for the gym.

          Also, added Pokemon X to the lineup.

            Today is the last day of this thread's lifetime. In around 24 hours we say goodbye to it, and welcome a brand new Monotype thread to the Challenges Forum. I'll get the thread all caught up and accurate so everyone has accurate records throughout the day. Thanks for keeping with things to this point guys. I'll see you on the other side.

            Sorry I missed your question. There will be a field in the sign up form to import progress from this thread.

            Also, Bill was the one who gave you the SS Anne Ticket.



            At this point I'm going to ask that no one post further in this thread. The new version of the Ultimate Monotype Challenge should be up soon

              Alright, so I'm keeping at it with my Fire-type UMC - I'm starting over in Pokémon Y, doing the sixth run of my Fire-type challenge now! So far, I've only been spending some time soft resetting for a decent nature for Fennekin and Fletchling. So,

              Game: Y
              Type: Fire
              Badges: 0
