Ugh, here goes...

Username: Spirit Shackle
Partner Pokemon: Gallade
Challenge: Ultimate
Game(s): SoulSilver, Alpha Sapphire, Diamond, Black 2, Y, Ultra Moon. Gallade still is in no official Kanto games.
Previous Progress: Yes, complete through Kalos

This is going to be my hardest challenge ever. By a lot. Totem Mimikyu literally breaks solo runs. Anyway, finishing up my Y Random and then I'll get on this.

Going with UM over Sun for a couple reasons - Tutors and a better totem 1 for starters.

My very first post on this forum (and therefore this tread).

I like the idea of a Solo Challenge. Just finished a Single challenge, might consider the Ultimate (did an Ultimate Bug Monotype once, quite fun).

“You know,” said Arthur, “it’s at times like this, when I’m trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I’d listened to what my mother told me when I was young.”
“Why, what did she tell you?”

Made it. Few side notes:

- BASIL could not evolve due to not having a National Dex. I decided to do the run anyway.
- BASIL is a girl...
- I chose Charmander as a starter for the extra challenge against my rival.

I mainly struggled with the first gym, Brock, and with Lance and Champion/Rival GREEN. With Brock I just got lucky that after 2x Rock Tomb and me using potions, he decided to spam Bind and Tackle... For both Lance and GREEN I used 2x X Special against their first pokemon, healed and then Crunched/Flamethrew/Solar Beamed my way to the championship.

Proof:

So let's talk about Gallade. Hoo boy was this mess fun

Spirit Shackle's Ultimate Gallade Solo Run is Complete Again!!!!!

Ultra Moon is a dumb game and X-Items are busted. That said, free Iron Defense/Amnesia buffs on demand are fun and the only way to beat certain fights. Looking at you, Mimikyu, ya whiny brat.

Raticate was easy because X-Items and Fairy > Dark (Z-Move: lol none)
Hala was easy because X-Items and Fairy/Psychic > Fighting (Z-Move: none)
Araquanid was easy because X-Items (Z-Move: none)
Marowak was really damn hard because Ghost > Psychic (Z-Move: none)
Lurantis was easy because I can use Inferno Overdrive now and also I finally evolved. (Z-Move: Inferno Overdrive)
Olivia I was easy because X-Items and Fighting > Rock (Z-Move: All-Out Pummeling)
Togedemaru was easy because X-Items and Fighting > Steel (Z-Move: Inferno Overdrive)
Guzma I was easy because X-Items and I maxed out Rotom at this point and got two Z-Moves (Z-Move: Inferno Overdrive x2)
Mimikyu was aids, but it's okay because X-Items (Z-Move: None)
Guzma II was easy because X-Items and Gigavolt Havoc (Z-Move: Gigavolt Havoc x2)
Nanu was easy because X-Items and Fighting > Dark (Z-Move: All-Out Pummeling)
Guzma III was easy because X-Items and 2x Supersonic Skystrike (Z-Move: Supersonic Skystrike x2)
Lusamine was easy because X-Items and 2x Shattered Psystrike (Z-Move: Shattered Psystrike x2)
Kommo-o died in one hit to Shattered Psystrike (Z-Move: Shattered Psystrike)
Baby Necrozma died in one hit to Never-Ending Nightmare (Z-Move: Never-Ending Nightmare)
Big Daddy Necrozma was easy because X-Items (and Roto-Boost) and double Never-Ending Nightmare (Z-Move: Never-Ending Nightmare x2)
Every single Captan got X-Item'd and Z-Moved
Ribombee was aids, but it's okay because X-Items and Supersonic Skystrike (Z-Move: Supersonic Skystrike)
Hapu was easy because 2x Z-Moves are still OP, but X-Items are more OP (Z-Move: Shattered Psystrike x2)
Gladion III was easy because 2x Z-Moves are still OP, but X-Items are more OP. Also I'm REALLY overlevelled now. (Z-Move: All-Out Pummeling x2)
Molyane was easy because X-Items and Fighting > Steel (Z-Move: All-Out Pummeling x2)
Olivia II was easy because X-Items and Fighting > Rock (Z-Move: All-Out Pummeling x2)
Kahili's Braviary was annoying, but after it literally killed itself I could X-Item my way to glory (Z-Move: Shattered Psystrike x2)
Acerola was easy because Dhelmise is literally setup bait (Z-Move: Never-Ending Nightmare x2)
Hau is a whiny brat. In an incredible deviation from my normal strats, I Roto-Boosted 4 times rather than X-Item spamming. Well, I did use ONE X-Attack after Tauros Intimidated me because I felt bullied (Tauros also took a Super Effective STAB +5 Attack All-Out Pummeling to the face). Other than that, this battle was uneventful. (Z-Move: All-Out Pummeling x2)

Shoutouts to the other characters that made this run a success:
Rowlet the Popplio for being my primary team member for one wild fight before I remembered to hack in Ralts.
Fodder the Ledian for helping with a forced Double Battle in Po Town
Bag the Necrozma for helping with some double battles in Victory Road
Dog the Lilipup for picking up a Super Potion right after I caught it (for exp) that unironically saved the run.
The right clerk at the Route 4 Pokemart for being my X-Item dealer
Rotom Dex for being overpowered as heck

And now, the man himself:

Inigo (Gallade) @ Fightinium Z (among other things)
Ability: Steadfast
Level: 70
Adamant Nature
- Fire Punch (also used in this slot: Thunder Punch)
- Close Combat
- Shadow Sneak

Once upon a time, there was a stizh playing Pokemon Stadium 2. Little Cup destroyed him time and time again, and he was at his wits end. Suddenly, the bot chose to not use the killer Abra in the final battle and instead used Poliwag, and this stizh promised to do an Electrode solo run if the Voltorb he was using managed to net him a win. That leads us to...

SUON SOLOS KANTO
...over and over again..
challenges completed: 2/81


Others are doing it or have done it before, but I figured it would be very challenging to do a Solo Run with every evolution line in the Pokedex from a particular region. I reckon the main challenge would be to actually completed this, but even if it will take me a few years (81 evolines in Kanto, if I'm not mistaken), I'm still gonna try.

UPDATE 1: VENUSAUR
Spoiler:

Finished the first run with Bulbasaur/Ivysaur/Venusaur.


ZAPHOD @ lvl76
Nature: Lonely
Ability: Overgrow
Hold Item: Miracle Seed
Moves: Giga Drain, Earthquake, Return, Toxic

Troubles on the way:
- Rival BLUE, almost every battle (Pidgeot, Alakazam, Charizard with their type advantages, especially in Cerulean I blacked out a few times).
- E4 Agathe (Return, Earthquake and Toxic can't hurt the ghosts, Giga Drain is not very effective. Eventually won with X Specials and an Elixer).


UPDATE 2: CHARIZARD
Spoiler:

Just finished the Charmander-line run.


MARVIN @ lvl75
Nature: Brave
Ability: Blaze
Hold Item: Charcoal
Moves: Flamethrower, Aerial Ace, Rock Slide, Earthquake

Troubles on the way:
- Misty (MARVIN fainted the first time. After skipping her and getting HM Cut, he's overleveled enough to beat her).
- Rival GREEN as Champion (his Blastoise to be precise. We needed to rechallenge the E4 and some X items because of him).

seeing this reminded me i started something similar a while ago, and it inspired me to continue with this. I found for the earlier games, Red and Blue were much easier because speedups make the game go way faster, and the combined special stat makes it easier to tear through the game. The later mons don't really learn any moves until you are supposed to catch them, so FRLG is probably better.

I'll be attempting a beedrill solo run for my first one back. This was so tough my first go around that i just stopped trying and moved onto another one. Wish me luck!

UPDATE 4: BUTTERFREE
Spoiler:

Finished the Caterpie-line.


TWOFLOWER @ lvl75
Nature: Bold
Ability: Compoundeyes
Hold Item: None
Moves: Sleep Powder, Dream Eater, Giga Drain, Aerial Ace

Remarks:
- Although the stats are way worse than the previous 3, Butterfree is pretty awesome! The Sleep Powder/Dream Eater combo is always effective due to Compoundeyes. The run took a bit longer than the others, but I didn't run into any problems until the E4.
- E4 Lorelei. Needed a rematch after Lapras woke up early and used a crithit Ice Beam. 2nd time was easy though.
- E4 Lance was a close call. Aerodactyl was the only opponent in the game that outspeeded me, and Ancient Power got TWOFLOWER's full HP down to 17. Also, the Dragonairs knew Shed Skin, so Sleep Powder didn't work properly.

Butterfree is underrated imo, although its much harder with Generation 3 mechanics ;). Generation 1 with Psychic, Sleep Powder, Double Team and a move of your choice(Dream Eater perhaps), you'll never lose ^_^ Good luck with the Beedrill line(you'll need it).

Absolutely, although I always find that Sleep Powder misses more than hits in the Gen1 games (hail Compoundeyes). But yeah, natures like Early Bird, Shed Skin and especially Insomnia negate the strength of Butterfree in Gen3 of course.

And thanks, I really think the good luck wishes helped!! ????

...over and over again..
challenges completed: 5/81 (or 15/151)


UPDATE 5: BEEDRILL
Spoiler:

Finished the Weedle-line.


WEATHERWAX (f) @ lvl78
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Swarm
Hold Item: None
Moves: Twineedle, Return, Brick Break, Aerial Ace

Remarks:
- It seemed to be harder to level up a Weedle than a Caterpie. But when it finally evolved, WEATHERWAX was pretty neat.
- I suspected a harsh battle against Brock, but his' AI isn't great. I use 6x Harden first against his Geodude, 1x Focus Energy, Poison Sting till Poison settles, and spam Fury Attack after. His Onix only uses Rock Tomb twice, of which it misses once. So with a bit of luck and strategy I win.
- Blaine is the next big challenge. With 4 fire Pokemon, of which 2 have intimidate, this is gonna be a hard one. I don't think I can afford waisting moves on X Items, so we just spam Return, and with attack -1 we OHKOed his Growlithe first. Ponyta doesn't faint immediately, hits one Fire Blast and heals. WEATHERWAX her Special Defence is pretty high, so we continue with ~1/2hp. The next Return hits critical and Ponyta faints. Next, Rapidash. Again, we get a crit hit, and OHKO Rapidash. Last, but not least, Arcanine comes. Attack -2, HP still halfish. I don't heal and use Return, which does about 1/4hp damage. Ow... Arcanine uses Fire Blast, and... misses! Again we use Return, and get a crit hit again! Arcanine faints, we win. Wow...
- We challenge the E4 three times. The first time, we lose against Bruno. All of his Pokemon use Rock Tomb, where I forget to heal... The second time I use X Attacks and win with ease, until Champion BLACK. He has 5 Pokemon which are supposedly supereffective against my Bug/Poison ?? (Pidgeot, Alakazam, Exeggutor, Rhydon and Arcanine) and with Pidgeot using Sand-Attack and Feather Dance and Arcanine having intimidate, we don't have a change. The third time I come prepared, and by smartly using Guard Spec. and X Attacks, we become Champion

TRILLIAN (f) @ lvl78
Nature: Impish
Ability: Keen Eye
Hold Item: None
Moves: Aerial Ace, Return, Steel Wing, Double Team

Remarks:
- Brock was a relatively long battle, but doable using Sand Attack, a few Potions and spamming non-effective attacks. Again, his AI is not that good, so RockTomb didn't get used much and always missed.
- The very first (and last) time I blacked out was against Champion Rival WHITE's Charizard, his last Pokemon and therefore the last Pokemon of the challenge, who managed to get a crithit Fire Blast in...

Beedrill Solo Run Complete

Beedrill wasn't that bad, the hard parts didn't really come until later on in the run, after silph co, which was after i got the take down TM which solved all my Fire and Flying type issues.

Twinneedle was an amazing move, and super underrated. I beat every enemy in Koga and Sabrina's gym with nothing but that move.

Overall, Beedrill was easier than I thought at first, and Brock was easy once you got a few misses, and poison in him.

Final Beedrill


Level 74
- Twineedle
- Poison Sting
- Take Down
- Mega Drain

CONINA (f) @ lvl78
Nature: Serious
Ability: Run Away
Hold Item: None
Moves: Return, Shadow Ball, Ice Beam, Thunder Wave

Remarks:
- The fight against Brock was a tough one, but I managed, at level 16 if I remember correctly. A lot of Tail Whips, some Potions and Hyper Fangs do the trick.
- That's it. No other problems. Ran into a Chansey at the safari zone and even managed to catch it, but unfortunately no Lucky Egg, so released it again.
- Beat the E4 and Champion Rival PINK like eggs.

Kanto Solo Update!

Fearow is complete! I didn't get any pictures because VBA was being weird, but the run was completed nethertheless. I assumed that Fearow was going to be awful because of the lack of moves that he learns, but it's actually about the same as Pidgeot, so it wasn't too bad. He ended up being easier than Pidgeot, but still harder than everyone else, just because he only learned flying and normal type moves.

Final Fearow

Level 76
- Drill Peck
- Peck
- Take Down
- Mirror Move

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Arbok completed! He was a pain in the beginning, I hacked him into route 1 and grinded him all the way up to level 20 before he took on brock and bit his way through the first gym. Outside of that, the only thing that was a pain were the slowbro's along the way that took me off guard and killed me a few times. Despite that, Sabrina wasn't as bad as I thought she was going to be, and she went down without any issues.

Here is the link to the album

Final Arbok



Level 77
- Strength
- Fissure (Was dig until champion fight)
- Acid
- Mega Drain

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Raichu Completed!
He was pretty tough actually, I had to grind to level 20 ish to beat brock, but he was fun to use just because of being Raichu. I died several times in rock tunnel. Any rock/ground type was a pain to deal with, Giovanni was hard, and Bruno's two Onix killed me a few times. Aside from that he was fun to use.

Final Raichu


Level 75
- Thunderbolt
- Slam
- Swift
- Thunder

Here is the Raichu proof I took more pictures than before, I think the album looks worse, so I think this is the only time I will take pics of the gym leaders.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sandslash is done!

He was really easy outside of one pokemon - Gyarados. Every single time i encountered one i died at least once. I also feel like this is a given at this point, but I had to grind to level 17 to beat Brock. Getting slash at level 17 really helped propel the run and i didn't have to grind until the end. Sandslash is usually seen as a defensive pokemon, but he did perfectly fine for me.

Sandslash Proof

Final Sandslash


Level 74
- Earthquake
- Slash
- Swift
- Poison Sting (I never used poison sting but i kept it along just for type diversity

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I already completed Nidoking and Nidoqueen runs before, Nidoqueen was completed in a challenged quite some time ago, where i was given a random pokemon, and was required to level them up to level 100, and Nidoqueen was that random pokemon. Nidoking was completed when i was attempting to learn to speedrun pokemon red. I never comitted to learning it too well, but I still finished the game with just a Nidoking, and he is fun to use.


Completed Runs
Spoiler:





That means that clefable is next, and i'm not too worried, because TM's and type diversity usually come pretty well for them.

It's been a while, and i've put several updates on one post, so i feel like it's time I made another. Anyways, Clefable was pretty easy and i didnt have any major issues aside from the normal having to grind up before Brock. The moveset was pretty great 10/10 im excited for basically this same run up in two runs right after Ninetales with Wigglytuff.


Final Clefable

Crystal is finished!



Didn't really have any challenge. Feraligatr stomps the entire region because it has like the best coverage in the whole game. Got through with Ice Punch, Slash, Bite, and Surf pretty easily. Used Oddish, Pidgey, and Shiny Gyarados as HM slaves. The only healing item I used was a single Full Restore after Karen? because her Umbreon confused Todo and I couldn't kill it fast enough before it did damage.

On to Firered!

EDIT: Whoops, forgot about Kanto. Happens!



Now onto Firered!

UPDATE 8: FEAROW
Spoiler:

Finished the Spearow-line.


GRUS GRUS (f) @ lvl76
Nature: Serious
Ability: Keen Eye
Hold Item: None
Moves: Return, Drill Peck, Steel Wing, Double Team

Remarks:
- I think Fearow is better than Pidgeot. This was a very easy and quick run. Maybe it gets easier with every game I play. GRUS GRUS didn't faint once.

“You know,” said Arthur, “it’s at times like this, when I’m trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I’d listened to what my mother told me when I was young.”
“Why, what did she tell you?”
“I don’t know, I didn’t listen.”

Firered is donezo!



This was actually a bit difficult because Feraligatr doesn't get any Ice-type moves via level-up moveset, so I struggled a bit. Thankfully, it can learn Aerial Ace, so that took care of my Grass-type weaknesses fairly early. I ended the Elite Four with Surf, Aerial Ace, Bite, and Earthquake/Blizzard (for Lance). Karen gave me some trouble because I had no moves SE against her Lapras. Agatha was also a bit difficult because her Gengar's didn't OHKO to Bite (where's Crunch when you need it...). Lance and Rival's Gyarados were hell. Lots of Full Restore spam. Otherwise, pretty easy. Other Pokemon in the screenshot were HM slaves.

Onto Emerald!
