A lot's happened so I think it's time for an update.

- Managed to obtain Dusk Stone and evolve Mistress into Honchkrow!

- Pinch evolved into Drapion at LVL 40

- Beat the Canalave City gym.

- Did some serious grinding with the whole Team Galactic scenario, and made my way up to Snowpoint City.

- After some more grinding, got the whole team up to Level 50-some

- Caught Sneasel. Bred the Sneasel because I don't like using Pokemon I caught in the wild whose levels are too high.

- Egg was obtained.

- Egg hatched into Sneasel. Nickname: Sash

- Did some intense grinding to get Sash up to speed with the rest of the team.

- Meanwhile, beat the Snowpoint City gym.

- Made my way to the Galactic HQ and went through the whole scenario, collecting a Razor Claw in the process.

- Using Razor Claw, evolved Sash into Weavile.

- Currently underway to Mt. Coronet for another Team Galactic scenario.

Current team:

Species: Honchkrow
Type: Dark/Flying
Gender: Female
Level: 53

Species: Houndoom
Type: Dark/Fire
Gender: Male
Level: 51

Species: Drapion
Type: Poison/Dark
Gender: Female
Level: 52

Species: Weavile
Type: Dark/Ice
Gender: Female
Level: 54

I can't believe it's alredy time for the next to last update on my Ground UMC! I've gotten a lot done since my last update, including getting the final badges in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh, and beating the Elite Four, N, and Ghestis in Unova! Since the next update will be the final for each game, I may do an individual update for each game so I can focus on the games individually. Also, it will probably be a while until my next update(s) because I have a lot of leveling up to do!

        Well today I am very very surprised! Red in this game has 90-94 level pokemon. I only trained upto level 80 with only 5 pokemon(because I needed one for Rock Climb and no flying pokemon can learn it). I defeated Red with only 2 pokemon. Here's how:

        Altaria survived Thunder from Pikachu and killed it with Earthquake. Then came Charizard so I switched to Gyarados, setted up Dragon Dance and OHKO'd all his remaining pokemon.

        And I am giving up the idea to catch all the pokemon because since I completed this game a few hours ago, I was catching pokemon. I caught about 300 pokemon without saving but I accidently closed my emulator. And I don't want to do that again(it contained all the Johto and Kanto legendaries including the roaming ones)
        Check out my gaming company:

              Yet another crappy update from me, yay! I don't have time to make it all pretty ever. :( I beat Elesa with my electric monotype team, which wasn't as bad as I thought. Clay will be the real challenge, though.

              Still no progress in my Normal UMC. The Elite Four are brutal. Plus, I'm kinda lacking good movesets.

              As for my Rock UMC, I'm currently at Misty with a level 33 Graveller. I'm going to grind a LOT more, because her Staryu can 2hKO my Graveller. I imagine her Starmie could 1 shot it.

                Alright, my first update for my Ultimate Flying-Mono Challenge:

                Ultimate Flying-Mono: FireRed

                - Named myself "Harvey" and my rival "Vulturo" (if you get it, you're awesome :))

                - Chose Charmander and named him "Smaug"

                - Did the usual crap then caught a Caterpie and named her "Marge"

                - Grinded Marge to a "Butterfree" then cleared through Viridian Forest to Pewter

                - Had a tough time with Brock but managed to earn the
                Boulder Badge

                - Made my way to the Mt.Moon PKMN Center and bought "Leviathan" the Magikarp

                - Fought my way through Mt.Moon and arrived in Cerulean, evolving Charmander along the way

                - Beat Vulturo with ease then made my way to Bill's House and grabbed the SS.Ticket

                - Skipped over Misty to evolve Magikarp into Gyarados

                - Went back to Cerulean and made short work of Misty for the
                Cascade Badge

                - Walked to Vermillion and rampaged through the SS.Anne, beating Vulturo again and grabbing Cut

                - Did the frustrating Gym puzzle then managed to steal a victory from Surge, earning me the
                Thunder Badge

                - Went through Diglett's cave to grab Flash, then made my way to Rock Tunnel

                Well, that's all for now, looking forward to doing this challenge considering how many Flying types there are.
                Ultimate Mono-Challenges finished:

                    Well I just beat my 8th gym leader. Time to drudge through the slowest part of the game. I've evolved everything in my party to the point I plan to use them. Porygon2 will not be evolving further.

                    We traded in Virtual from Emerald and boxed Calypso. We did some grinding on Mt. Battle to catch Virtual up to the rest of the team. Word on the street is that Cail saw a trainer with a suspicious Bayleef, of course I didn't get more info out of him til I battled him and almost lost. After winning with only Noctis left standing, he told me he couldn't remember the trainer's name, only that he went to the Snagem Hideout. But of course after that beating I took, I think it's time for more grinding. I did round 1 of The Under Colosseum and got bored, so that's it for today. Starting to slow down on this challenge now, as post game means more grinding since it's pretty brutal. Sigh.

                    some princes don't become kings.

                      75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

                      Ultimate Fighting Monotype: Black Version

                      Well, it took me quite a while, but I finally managed to catch all the Fighting types outside of Pinwheel Forest. I grinded my whole team to lvl 20 (Audino are so easy with Fighting types) and pretty much annihilated Lenora. Now I'm in Pinwheel Forest hunting Plasma Grunts.


                      Lvl 22, Jolly
                      -Arm Thrust
                      -Tail Whip
                      -Flame Charge
                      -Defense Curl

                      Suzuki (Probably gonna change her name)
                      Lvl 22, Careful
                      -Rock Throw
                      -Focus Energy
                      -Wake-Up Slap
                      -Low Kick

                      Lvl 21, Impish
                      -Low Sweep
                      -Focus Energy
                      -Double Kick

                      Lvl 21, Bashful
                      -Focus Energy
                      -Seismic Toss

                      Anywho, less than a week left of my special 1000 post event, so i figure I should sign up for a particularly annoying challenge, Ghost monotype in Kanto. What are you doing here? Shuppet...

                      Username: NecrumWarrior
                      Type: Ghost
                      Games: FireRed for now, rest later

                      I didn't do much, I picked my starter, Shuppet, and delivered the Parcel. Other than that it was just training. Decided just to wait for Gastly.

                          I finished SoulSilver, I didn't get a pic of Red because it just skips to the credits after beating him. And Gorebyss was the most useful against him.

                            What are you doing here? Update #1 on Ruby:

                            Started the game.
                            Hacked Charmander as a starter.
                            Did the beggining stuff.
                            Caught a Wrumple.
                            Wrumple evolved twice.
                            Taught Wally how to catch pokemon.
                            Challenged Roxxane and finally won after some tries.
                            Charmander evolved after the battle.
                            Hepled Peeko.
                            Caught a Magikarp in Dewford.
                            Trained my pokemon till level 20.
                            Magikarp evolved after training and I also found a shiny Makuhita.
                            Defeated Brawly with ease.

                            My Team:

                            And my shiny Makuhita:

                                  Trying to beat roxanne atm but my Winguls water gun just wont take out her last poke and i cant stall long enough to get through all of her potions befor rock tomb takes me out. More training will be needed! Plan on picking up a Nincada in the next route to join the team, two members for one!

                                  75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

                                    Okay that was a fast playthrough of Fire red in my Ultimate Flying Challenge. Here is my team Right after beating The E4

                                    THE TEAM:

                                    lvl. 55 Lonely
                                    - Tri Attack
                                    - Pursuit
                                    - Hyper Beam
                                    - Drill Peck

                                    lvl. 53 Lonely
                                    - FlameThrower
                                    - Rock Slide
                                    - Aerial Ace
                                    - Dragon Claw

                                    lvl. 53 Naive
                                    - Strength
                                    - Surf
                                    - Earthquake
                                    - Dragon Dance

                                    lvl. 50 Docile
                                    - Wing Attack
                                    - Steel Wing
                                    - Ancient Power
                                    - Strength

                                    lvl. 51 Hardy
                                    - Psychic
                                    - Stun Spore
                                    - Sleep Powder
                                    - Toxic

                                    lvl. 51 Brave
                                    - Wing Attack
                                    - Fly
                                    - Quick Attack
                                    - Featherdance

                                    Overall i would say that Charizard and pidgeot was the most valuable members but at the Elite four Dodrio Was Boss and laid waste to all those that i couldn't beat with something else thanks to monster Attack and a STAB Hyper Beam. Dodrio is Absolutely one of my favourite pokemon because its powerful, fast and just looks beastly.

                                    I went to Cinnabar Island as early as possible and got Aerodactyl and trained him up with the VS Seeker but he ended up as a somewhat unused member because he just wasn't as powerful as Charizard, Dodrio and Gyarados. Butterfree was very helpful and took down most of agatha's team, i love using butterfree the way i did in this playthrough by poisoning and putting others to sleep, as a supporter to the rest of the team or when fighting ghost or fighting putting them to sleep and killing with Psychic, even though Butterfree's Stats suck, it's got a really good ability (Compound Eyes) in combination with the moves i gave it.

                                    I will go on to Hoenn in My Flying now.
