    I originally planned to have this part go up to Flannery, but the Ralts run finally got difficult.

    Part 2: Minor Difficulty Spike
    Spoiler:
    - Arrive at Route 109 and grind against most of the trainers.
    - Enter Slateport City, go to the Dockyard, and the go to the Museum.
    - Enter Team Magma Goons (but not before getting the Thief TM)
    - This first one rocked my world. I got rid of Double Team so I felt I was playing fair. Dude's Level 16 Numel knows Flame Burst and always 2HKOs. Confusion also refused to be on my side. Ever. It never worked.
    - Leave and grind Ralts to level 18. Also develop strategy that makes use of... Confide. Hey it never misses...
    - The Numel no longer goes straight for Flame Burst, but now Focus Energy, which ignores Confide's Stat Drops.
    - I get lucky as it finally hits itself on my sixth or seventh attempt, and I finally win.
    - Beat the second grunt (Mr. Future Ace Grunt) as well.
    - Leave Slateport, and head to Route 110 and begin prepping for May.
    - I lost to the first trainer on the Route. A plusle and minun. Lost.
    -
    -
    -
    - Regret.
    - I grind Hyla into a Kirlia, and begin to ease into fights again. I also catch the first HM buddy Chibi the Oddish, where I also ran around and did menial cut things but hey I got a Miracle Seed.
    - The rest of Route 110/Other Route 103 was smooth, even...
    Important Battle 4: Vs. May on Route 110
    This battle is tough, but either no one seems to talk about it, or maybe its just me. Thankfully, I managed to easily handle her this time. The Shroomish (what I blame for making the battle hard) was KOed with doing anything, no damage or status conditions. The Slugma and Marshtomp put on minor hurt, but I came out on top.
    - I made a mad dash to Route 117, and got my second teammate, Conejito the Marill
    - Then I got the Mach Bike and head to Granite Cave, where I then got Steelixite Masticar the Mawile!
    - I get my new members and grind up in every location possible. I also got the Expert Belt from the Trick House and evolved Conejito into Azumarill, where it also got Aqua Tail and the TM for Bulldoze.
    Real Talk, Azumarill's learnset in ORAS is ridiculous, getting Aqua Tail @ Lvl 21, and Play Rough @ Lvl 25
    - Defeated Wally.
    - I entered the Mauville Gym and challenged Wattson.
    Important Battle 5: Vs. Gym Leader Wattson
    Figuring Bulldoze was a TM was a gift, but finding a way to get Conejito in proved difficult because of Volt Switch Spam. Thankfully, after terrible luck with confusion, I was able to take out Magneton with a Bulldoze, and the entire fight was downhill, as the AI haywired, and caused the Voltorb to just spam Charge for some reason, and the Magnemite to miss a supersonic (I think).
    - 3rd Badge is mine.


    Team So Far:
    Spoiler:
    Hyla the Kirlia - Level 24

    Ability - Trace

    *Emerald sprites look nicer that ORAS sprites online, so I'm using those.


    I also forgot to put this, but back on Route 104 (middle of part 1), my Ralts traced a Zigzagoon's pickup, and both me and the foe picked up two Oran berries each in the middle of battle. Neat.

          ICE ULTIMATE - Kalos - Part 1
          So, let’s begin! I kind of wanted to do the regions in order, but decided to start with X since it’s been a long time since I played through Kalos.

          THE PLOT
          Spoiler:

          -Picked Fennekin as starter…. obviously can’t use it after the Fossil Lab, but it’ll help me get through the first gym
          -Murdered a Chespin with Ember
          -Got through Route 2, Santalune Forest, and Route 3
          -Beat the Roller Skater blocking the gym


          THE TEAM
          Spoiler:

          Fennekin - “Taylor”

          Lv. 11
          Ability - Overheat
          Nature - Hasty
          Item - None
          Moves:
          Scratch
          Tail Whip
          Ember
          Howl

            Part 3: Heating Up

            Spoiler:
            - Blew past most of Route 112 and Route 113 without much difficulty.
            - Arrive at Fallabor, stuff is happening.
            - Route 114 had a little bit of a minor challenge, but was nothing severe.
            - Heart Scale. I drop everything and teach Masticar Iron Head.
            - Arrive at the Meteor Falls, and defeat Tabitha and Generic Grunt.
            - I head to Mauville, then drop the beatdown on Team Magma on Mt. Chimney.
            Important Battle 6: Vs. Magma Leader Maxie
            His Mightyena and Camerupt fell rather quickly, but I wanted to beat the Golbat with Hyla. But being frail defensively didn't help, and she fainted. I then switched in another team member (I forgot who) and took it out.
            - Jagged Pass was OK. I might need to go back in the future.
            - Arrive at Lavaridge and enter the gym. I attempted to evolve Hyla, but it didn't work out and she was level 29 before the fight.
            Important Battle 7: Vs. Gym Leader Flannery
            OHKO Slugma. Possibly OHKO Numel.
            Kirlia with one Calm Mind can survive an Overheat from Torkoal. But not Body Slam. What I did worked though, as the set sun was able to be stalled out. I then fainted it with Conejito.
            - I then began to level for Norman on Route 111 and Route 115.
            - Hyla evolves into a Gardevoir
            - I beat the trainers of the Petalburg Gym with ease.
            Important Battle 8: Vs. Gym Leader/Father Norman
            I was worried as this tends to be one of the harder gyms in Hoenn. I lead with Masticar to activate Intimidate, and was able to KO the first Slaking with Masticar and Conejito. I then defeat Slaking with Hyla. The last Slaking was intimidated again, nullifying it's Retaliate, and I managed to KO it with Conejito.
            - Get surf and charge Route 115
            - Take on a couple more trainers, and catch my last team member, Melee the Jigglypuff!
            - I began (and am still in the middle of) grind Melee to catch the rest of my team!
            - Shoutout to the second HM Slave, Joggers the Zigzagoon.

              • Defeated Sabrina. Tbh, I had more trouble with one of the Channelers in her gym than her.
              • Defeated Blaine. He was harder than the other two, but not terribly so - for some strange reason, he spent more time trying to heal his Pokemon than attacking me.

                -In fear of Viola’s Surskit, did some grinding on Route 22
                -Battled all the trainers in the gym and got to Level 16, but cancelled the evolution since it’s not an Ice type

                  Spoiler:
                  • Defeated Giovanni. It was a bit harder than the previous Gym Leaders, but I managed pretty well, mostly thanks to Chansey. :)
                  • Beat Rival on Route 22. I'm kind of surprised by how quickly his level spiked - I was almost 10 levels lower than his Venusaur. But despite that, I had no trouble beating him.
                  • Defeated the Elite 4. I would've wrote individual comments for each one, but really, all of the battles went pretty much the same - they were pretty difficult because of how underlevelled I was! The easiest was Bruno, and the hardest of course, was Lance - he OHKO'd my Chansey on the first turn, yo.
                  • Defeated Rival. This was the hardest battle of all, as you can imagine. Especially that Alakazam. In the end though, I came out victorious, and became the new Pokemon League Champion!

                    • Received Chikorita as my starter, retrieved the Mystery Egg from Mr. Pokemon, and defeated Rival in Cherrygrove City. Usual beginning of the game stuff. :P
                    • Caught Hoothoot on Route 29.
                    • Defeated all of the monks in Sprout Tower.
                    • Defeated Falkner. Even though I was a bit above his level, he was still pretty hard. I think the reason I was able to get through him as well as I did was because I used an X Defend lol.
                    • Received the Egg from Professor Elm's assistant.

                      • Defeated Bugsy. I almost lost, but thankfully, I was able to use Hypnosis on Scyther to stop its Fury Cutter.
                      • Beat Rival in Azalea Town. I'm not going to lie, it was REALLY difficult. It took me a few tries...
                      • Hoothoot evolved into Noctowl.
                      • Beat Whitney. I was really scared of her, but it actually was pretty easy. Hypnosis + Nightmare is a very deadly combo.

                        • Defeated Rival in Burned Tower. This battle went a lot better than the last one thanks to Miltank's Rollout.
                        • Defeated Morty. I had a hard time against his Gengar, but Hypnosis + Nightmare ended up being incredibly effective again. I think this is going to become a running trend...
                        • Snubbull evolved into Granbull.
                        • Beat Chuck. I was pretty scared of him, and his gym did give me difficulties... Noctowl came through for me in the end, though. :)
                        • Beat Jasmine. It took me a bunch of tries to get through it, mainly because I kept attempting to use Togepi against her for some reason and kept resetting lol. I was able to beat her though... Using Hypnosis + Nightmare again...... That combo is really broken.

                          I didn't post here before, so when I say completed, I did a monotype of the adjacent game beforehand. I might redo them eventually.

                          Starting off with the Fighting mono on Emerald. I need some kind of relaxation after beating Vega, lol. Will keep the post updated somewhat regularly.

                              This part took awhile. I wanted to get both Winona and Tate & Liza, but a lot of the late game routes are padded with big walking segments and a load of trainers, with some back and forth stuff.

                              Part 4: Jungle Buddies
                              Spoiler:
                              - Got Toxic TM for Melee
                              - Entered the left side of Route 118, and did the Latios/Latias quest, giving me the Mega Bracelet
                              *I don't intend to use megas in the playthrough.
                              - Got the Dazzling Gleam TM for Melee. Melee's moveset is 100% TMs somehow.
                              - Began the Route 119 trek, which is actually a jungle somehow, and evolve Melee into Wigglytuff, and grind it in the "Mimic circle".
                              - Slowly get through Route 119, and arrive at the weather institute.
                              - Clear it out, get a Castform. Box it. Excitement. Yay.
                              - May shows up and challenges me. I would enter the "Important Battle" tag if it wasn't a sweep.
                              - Arrive at Fortree. The ladders are annoying.
                              I need to mention this, who decided to flood the later routes with Bird Keepers. Yes, we get Swellow and Pelipper exist, but these things were the some of FIRST trainers you faced in GSC. I don't get it.
                              - Go to Route 120 and grab the Devon Scope.
                              - Enter and beat the Fortree gym trainers.
                              Important Battle 9: Vs. Gym Leader Winona
                              This was a pretty easy battle, even without a majority of the super effective types most people have at the battle (Electric and Rock). I thought the Skarmory was my one tough foe, but Conejito 2HKOed it with ease.
                              - Completed the rest of Route 120, and went to Route 121, where I beat most of that route's trainers as well.
                              - Arrived at Lilycove. For some reason, I can't use the ferry for Slateport - Lilycove transportation as it is... saved for the post game.
                              Important Battle 10: Vs. May
                              This one wasn't that hard either, but it wasn't an instant sweep. I think most of her team was 2HKOed however.
                              - Get two more TMs at the Department Store for Melee, and then head to Mt. Pyre. Beat the trainers and head to the top.
                              - Get to the top and face Team Magma. 4 easy battles
                              - Head to the Slateport dock, and then defeat the two magma grunts there.
                              NEXT TIME: The rest of the Team Magma Arc, as well as the Mossdeep and hopefully Sootopolis Gyms.

                                • Caught the Red Gyarados at the Lake of Rage. It's gonna make a good HM slave later. :P
                                • Defeated Team Rocket in the Mahogany Town hideout.
                                • Defeated Pryce. This was the first gym battle that I didn't use Noctowl for. I used Granbull instead - it went pretty well!
                                • Beat Rival in the Underground Warehouse. It went pretty well, especially now that I have a Psychic type.
                                • Defeated Team Rocket at the Goldenrod Radio Tower.

                                    • Defeated Clair. It was really hard, mainly because I was underleveled. But, unsurprisingly, I was able to use Hypnosis + Nightmare on her Kingdra.
                                    • Defeated Rival in Victory Road. It wasn't too difficult, though I'm still feeling the effects of being underleveled.
                                    • Defeated the Elite 4. Since I didn't feel like doing much grinding, it was pretty difficult, Will and Bruno especially. But, all things considered, the Elite 4 felt like a cakewalk because...
                                    • With much difficulty, I defeated Lance. Oh my god, this battle was tough, and not just because I was underleveled. He runs Hyper Beam on EVERYTHING, so I spent most of the battle just healing and attacking on his recharge turns. In the end, Ursaring was my real MVP - since she was the only one with a decent Ice move, she was able to wipe out the Dragonites pretty easily.

                                      • Chose Mudkip as my starter, beat the wild Poochyena and May, and helped Wally get his Ralts. The usual stuff, really. :P
                                      • Caught Taillow on Route 104.
                                      • Caught Slakoth in Petalburg Woods.
                                      • Beat the Team Magma Grunt in Petalburg Woods. It was kind of hard - Slakoth really sucks at this level, lol.
                                      • Caught Whismur on Route 116.
                                      • Somehow managed to beat Roxanne. It required a combination of overleveling, 6 Double Teams, Focus Energy, 6 X Attacks, and lots of Super Potions. Thank God that's over with.

                                        • Defeated the Team Magma Grunt in Rusturf Tunnel and rescued Peeko.
                                        • Delivered the Letter to Steven, defeated Team Magma at the Oceanic Museum, and delivered the Devon Goods to Captain Stern.
                                        • Slakoth evolved into Vigoroth.
                                        • Beat Brawly. It was a LOT easier than I expected... He wasn't even able to attack me, Taillow just kept smacking him with Wing Attack.
                                        • Whismur evolved into Loudred.
                                        • Defeated May on Route 110. This battle is usually really difficult for me, but it actually wasn't this time. Probably because Grovyle is weak to Taillow.
                                        • Taillow evolved into Swellow.
                                        • Completely demolished Wally in Mauville. I'm going to be honest, I felt really bad about it.
                                        • Defeated Wattson. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be... But I was only able to win because I taught two of my Pokemon Rock Smash. I have a feeling I'm going to regret that later, lol....

                                          Part 5: How to save an entire region.
                                          Spoiler:
                                          - Started by entering an invading the Magma Base in Lilycove.
                                          - Bash grunts and get important items, like the Master Ball
                                          - The wild Maxie got away...
                                          - Backtrack, and head to Mossdeep City
                                          - After healing and checking out the city, I head south and check out most of the ocean routes between Mossdeep and Pacifidlog, and then continue onto Slateport, in an effort to grind a couple of levels.
                                          - I then fly back to Mossdeep to challenge the gym
                                          - Gym Trainers were easy, as I trained Hyla and Masticar, so I could not overlevel my doubles team for
                                          Important Battle 11: Vs. Gym Leaders Tate & Liza
                                          It was tougher, but because I made it a little tough. I used Melee and Conejito, and set up Toxic on the Lunatone. I then slowly began to chip at the Light Screen + Sunny Day'd Solrock. Fire Blast managed to burn it, and then I managed to KO the Solrock. The Lunatone (now at about 1/2 HP) then went down easily afterwards. Tate & Liza was the first gym I wasn't close to even 50% autopilot, and thought it through since Wattson.
                                          - I exit to serenity. Ahhh.
                                          - "Nope" said a big laser that CAME FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN.
                                          - I get Dive from Steven and go chase it.
                                          - I sweep the 5 grunts in the Seafloor Cavern and solve the puzzles before
                                          Important Battle 12: Vs. Magma Leader Maxie
                                          I OHKOed everything except the Mightyena, that didn't even have Intimidate. Pretty average, but the battle theme was sick.
                                          - He wasn't foiled and did it the thing with the Red Orb anyways.
                                          - Instead of slapping it out of his hand, my player just watches things happen. Groudon leaves.
                                          -
                                          - At least he had emotion (I think).
                                          - Onward to Sootopolis to save the world.
                                          - Not now Jaylon, the sky is melting everyone.
                                          - His level 39 Tentacruel provided more challenge than Maxie.
                                          - Enter Sootopolis
                                          - Cutscene with emotions.
                                          - Enter the Cave Of Origin and JUMP ON THE GROUDON'S BACK. seems right. And speaking of Groudon...
                                          Important Battle 13: Primal Groudon
                                          I used Hyla, and actually almost 2HKOed it, but it lived on a sliver of HP and used Rest of all things. Groudon, this isn't the GSC OU. (He didn't even know Sleep Talk). It fell shortly after.
                                          - Cutscene.
                                          Everybody complains about SM cutscenes and forgot these blockbuster behemoths exist.
                                          - ahem... Onward to wallace.
                                          Important Battle 14: Vs. Gym Leader Wallace
                                          Dude uses a Luvdisc. The battle wasn't that hard, so nothing really major to report. I did toxic stall the Milotic though, so that was a fun thing that happened.

                                          Next, onwards and upwards to the Elite Four, and the Throne of the champion.

                                              EPISODE III: RETURN OF THE MASTER
                                              Spoiler:

                                              I arrive in a little town called Littleroot, in a region called Hoenn. I've never been here before, so I'm anxious to find out what kind of Pokémon linger around here.

                                              Why am I here? I'm here because there are some people causing havoc around the region, calling themselves Team Magma. Apparently, they want to expand the landmass of the region by awakening a legendary Pokémon called Groudon. A rivaling group of people called Team Aqua has asked Professor Birch, a local Pokémon researcher, to find some help. Birch talked to Professor Oak, who reached out to me, the new Champion of the Indigo League and Master of the Ground-type. So basically, I'm a consultant!

                                              Unfortunately, my Pokémon don't fly well, not even on planes, so I had to leave them behind in Pallet Town. Professor Birch didn't have any Ground type Pokémon to offer me, but guaranteed me that I would become very fond of Mudkip, my new partner.

                                              They've given me very little information to go on, and basically I should just go travel around the region to find Team Magma and try to stop them using whatever means necessary...

                                              The first meeting with a member from Team Magma was in the Petalburg Woods. He was up to no good, so Mudkip beat the hell out of him!

                                              In Rustboro City I find that there's Gyms in this region as well, and decide to challenge Roxanne. I have a massive type advantage, and Mudkip evolves in a Marshtomp. Which turns out to be a Ground Pokémon! Marshtomp happy, I happy, everybody happy.

                                              I bump into the same Team Magma Grunt again, who started making trouble in the neighbourhood. I beat him again, and talk to the president of a big local company called the Devon Corporation. He asked me to go to Dewford Town to deliver a letter to his son, and to Slateport City to drop off a parcel to a captain.

                                              In Dewford I deliver the letter and beat the local Gymleader. I then set sail to Slateport, deliver the parcel and fight with Team Magma, who where trying to steal the package. Hmm... there's definitely something fishy going on...

                                              Team Magma fled and I head north to Mauville, where I battle Watson. Of course this isn't a problem for the high-leveled Marshtomp. After the battle, I continue north and find a small donkey-like Pokémon, Numel, and catch it.

                                              The next time I run into Team Magma is in a cave with a waterfall, called the Meteor Falls, but I didn't get to fight them. It looks like they stole some kind of meteorite and ran off when Team Aqua came marching in. I talk briefly with their leader, Archie, who thanks me for helping out, and then go Mt. Chimney to chase after Team Magma. Here I find their leader, a wicked bloke named Maxie who wants to erupt the volcano, and fight him. We win, and Numel evolves in a Camerupt!

                                              Hoenn is saved and I can finally take it easy. I climb down from the volcano and arrive in a small town called Lavaridge, where I beat the fire type Gymleader with ease.

                                              Not far from Lavaridge is a small desert. Since there's no more time pressure, I spend some time here, enjoying myself and catching two new teammembers: Trapinch and Baltoy.

                                              And now I'm stuck. I don't know where to go since I can't Surf yet. So I retrace all my steps and remember a gym in Petalburg City. I go here and indeed, the leader is ready for a battle. It isn't too hard though, and after I win, Marshtomp evolves in a Swampert and Trapinch in a Vibrava!

                                              Now I can finally surf! And with 5 Hoenn Badges in my pocket and Team Magma defeated, nothing can stop me from becoming the Champion in this region too. Right?
