"Useless" Pokémon Challenge

Welcome! In this Challenge, I'll play SoulSilver with Pokémon that are usually considered useless. To make it simple, I can only pick Fully evolved Pokémon with total status equal to 450 or less than it.
I'll consider fully evolved any Pokémon that can't evolve before the post-game, or that requires trade to evolve, cause I won't do it anyway. E.G.: Sneasel is a fully evolved.

I was told Aipom, Lickitung, Piloswine, Tangela, and Yanma can evolve before the postgame, but I'll keep them on the list. I'll be allowed to use them as long as they don't evolve.

This is the list of Pokémon I can pick:

Spoiler:
420

Smeargle
Ditto
Delibird
Unown
Farfetch’d
Aipom
Butterfree
Beedrill
Onix
Lickitung
Ledian
Ariados
Yanma
Parasect
Dugtrio
Togetic
Murkrow
Wobbuffet
Azumarill
Sudowoodo
Magcargo
Raticate
Furret
Dunsparce


421-450

Wigglytuff
Marowak
Sunflora
Quagsire
Gligar
Qwilfish *
Sneasel
Tangela
Misdreavus
Arbok
Persian
Fearow
Noctowl
Sandslash
Venomoth
Seaking
Jumpluff
Granbull *
Piloswine *


Everything's explained, so let's begin!
---

My first Pokémon after the starter was Hoothoot. I defeated Falkner with Hoothoot and a Ratatta.
Now my team is:


Hoppip (Meow)
Bold: +Def -Atk


Hoothoot (Doctor)
Modest: +Sp. Atk - Atk


Dunsparce (Quetzal)
Naive: +Spd - Sp. Def

It was luck to find the Dunsparce, so it was luck too it came with a nature that decreases a status that was useless anyway. The boost on Speed makes this status less terrible, though I think it would be more useful to have a boost on Sp. Def.


I'm accepting suggestions, if someone want to make.

Aipom, Lickitung, Piloswine, Tangela, and Yanma can evolve before the postgame. They need to learn a certain move to evolve (Double Hit for Aipom, Rollout for Lickitung, and Ancientpower for the others). For Piloswine, you need to go to the Move Reminder and give him a Heart Scale, but the others can learn their move if you level them up enough.
Do you like Pokemon battles? If yes, then come play The Great Pokemon Battle 9!

I didn't know it. I thought they kept all the gen 4 evolutions out of the main game.

Well, I won't change things. I'll allow myself to use these Pokémon as long as I don't evolve them.
It makes sense to me because a lot of them were classic one stage Pokémon in gen II.


Well, until now I defeated Bugsy. I thought it would be easy, but that Scyther gave me a lot of trouble.
My team is the same.

Whitney wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Meow (who's now a Skiploom) poisoned Miltank, then I sent Doctor out (now a Noctowl). Miltank infatuated Doctor, preventing it from attacking for many turns, but Miltank's HP was going down because of the poison. When it was very low, Doctor landed an attack, knocking Miltank out. My win!

Doctor (Noctowl) is my team's best guy. If it's unabale to battle, I have to stall.

I can say now that I defeated the rival with a Dunsparce.

Morty is the coolest gym leader. It's a shame you can defeat him easily if you have a super effective move.

Which way should I go from Ecruteak? East or west? Where can I get the Good Rod? I don't wanna google it, it feels like cheating.

I decided to go west, like I always do.

My team now is: Noctowl, Skiploom, Dunsparce

I got the Good Rod, so I caught a Qwilfish. The next gym battle was against Chuck. I won easily with Noctowl’s Confusion. The battle against Jasmine was harder. Lawyer, the Dunsparce had the best chance against her steel-type pokémon, with its Rock Smash and Dig. I used the other pokémon to weaken the enemies, and then I sent Dunsparce to give the final hit. Fortunately, Dunsparce outsped all her Pokémon. But it was a tense battle, and I had to use a lot of Super Potions and two Revives on Dunsparce. The last Pokémon, Steelix, received Leech Seed and was put to sleep by Jumpluff, then Dunsparce finalized it.

Current Team:

Noctowl
Dunsparce
Jumpluff
Qwilfish

Well, thanks to battling the trainers at Mahogany’s Gym, I battled Pryce with less one Pokémon in my team. Lawyer (Qwilfish) had no HP, but it set Toxic Spikes, that helped me beat Seel and Piloswine. Meow (my Jumpluff) almost defeated Seel with its Mega Drain, but it didn’t resist the ice attacks and then Pryce used Hyper Potion on Seel, making its effort useless. Quetzal (Dunsparce) surprised me with its strong Return, and defeated Seel and Piloswine. He was already weak and was defeated by Dewgong, so I had only Doctor (Noctowl) left. Its Special Defense was amazing, and it received few damage from the Aurora Beams though they were super effective. Dewgong abused of Rest, but I had Roost to heal me too. I kept using Shadow Ball, and it reduced the enemy's defense a couple of times, then I finished it. Pryce’s wise words at the end will stay with me. (you'll have a long time with your Pokémon - enjoy it!)

I think I'll catch one more Pokémon, but I don't know which.

Noctowl
Jumpluff
Dunsparce
Qwilfish
