      Finally getting back to my rock run and its going well.

      Easily swept Giovanni in game corner and got Silph Scope.
      Cleared pokemon Tower and got Poke Flute.
      Made it to Fuchsia City and proceeded to the Safari zone.
      Caught a lvl 25 rhyhorn and named it Tommy (felt like calling it Rocky but felt that was too corny but it made me think power rangers so Tommy).
      Found the gold teeth and gave them to the warden for strength.
      Went back to the Safari Zone cause I forgot surf.
      Tried to beat Erika and failed... again (never ending critical hit bull****).
      Started Silph Co. to get earthquake then left.
      Started fighting dojo for training but left the final guy.
      Struggled through Koga's gym because less than half of them actually have poison type pokemon instead of psychic types.
      Beat Koga and gained the abilty to surf.
      Went to Cinnabar island from Pallet town cause it was faster.
      Got an Omanyte called Omar (Helix be praised) and an Aerodactyl called amber from the Fossil reviver guy.
      Finally managed to beat Erika's Tangela and subsequently the rest of her team (she still had bull**** crits).
      Finished fighting dojo because why not.
      Grabbed Hitmonchan cause I felt like it.
      Decided grinding will be easier with EXP All and started to grind captures currently at 25 (15 to 50 sucks).

      Current Team:
      Gene the Graveler lvl 42 strength, rock throw, earthquake, harden
      Onyx the Onix lvl 38 dig, body slam, bind, rock throw
      Tommy the Rhyhorn lvl 33 rock slide, earthquake, horn attack, stomp
      Omar the Lor-Omanyte lvl 30 surf, withdraw, toxic, ice beam
      Amber the Aerodactyl lvl 30 wing attack, rage, fly, swift
      A bulbasaur cause I still need cut sometimes lvl unimportant cut, rest don't matter

      Overall its going well and I really like how its progressing.

          Finished my Emerald Ghost-type run. Gotta say, I've never used most of these Pokémon but I think after this I'm pretty fond of all of them!

          Final Update (Badges - 8/8):
          - Took care of some stuff I didn't bother with before like exploring the Abandoned Ship to get TM13
          - Made my way through Victory Road
          - Realized my Pokémon weren't quite ready yet and did some training
          - Challenged the Elite 4
          - Beat the Elite 4 and Wallace!

            Did the first rival battle, chose Rowlet, so Hau has the starter that's weakest to mine, as it was intended if you use a starter. Caught a Pichu and a Grubbin.
            Returned to the festival and beat Hau again, now I'm at the professor's house.

                  I've finally gotten the time to continue my Emerald Bug Monotype, and so far I've beaten Winona and the last battle against May.
