Just saying, Kanto and Red are optional in the Johto games, so your Crystal Run can count as complete if you don't want to do the Kanto part.

Well in that case, consider my Crystal entry in the water monotype complete then.

Quick question about items in the game, could I import the secret key so I could grab rotom wash form? I still have my platinum physical copy with my key in it so it is in the game, just 7-8 years ago.

Since it's an event item, I'll have to say no.
It would be a different answer if it was obtainable in-game, but since you can't get it while playing the game, then I can't allow it.

Also, fyi, assuming this question is for your Water Monotype, all Rotom formes are Electric/Ghost in gen 4, and didn't get separate typings until gen 5, so you wouldn't be able to use it anyways. :p

Pokemon Y - Fighting Monotype Update #1:
Badges: 4/8

Currently in the Power Plant. I currently cannot check my levels/moves as I don't have my 3DS with me, but here's my team so far.
Spoiler:

---------------------------------------------
I also added a note regarding Oricorio forms, allowing Nectars being traded in to use any form from the first island.
They don't change base stats, and the only thing that changes is the type and the move Revelation Dance, so I felt it would be acceptable to allow this.

Emerald Bug Monotype Update 2:
  • Completely skipped Brawly for the time being
  • Delivered the letter to Steven Stone after wandering in a cave for a while
  • Made it to Slateport
  • Stopped Team Aqua from learning
  • KALA reached Level 20 and evolved, gained a new party member in the form of MALTA the Shedinja
  • Beat May again, KALA tore down Wingull and Grovyle pretty easily

Made some pretty good progress. Current plan: Catch an Illumise, use MALTA against Wattson for all but his Voltorb.

Current Team:
MIKE the Beautifly, Level 20
DUSTER the Dustox, Level 20
KALA the Ninjask, Level 21
and MALTA the Shedinja, Level 20

Update 2.5:
  • Beat Wally's Ralts in one hit
  • Beat Wattson

Ditched the plan about Illumise. I'll wait for Anorith, then Heracross. Now, off to some more plot (and also Flannery).

Current Team:
MIKE the Beautifly, Level 21
DUSTER the Dustox, Level 22
KALA the Ninjask, Level 21
and MALTA the Shedinja, Level 22

And if it isn't too much trouble, may I be added to the original post?

EDIT - Quick question: would you consider allowing Mega Stones and Z-Crystals? They're a pretty large feature in the games they're introduced, and personally I think there's something special about having a "team mega". I care less about Z-crystals, though, but I think it should be up to the player whether or not they want to use megas or Z-moves. Just my two cents.

As it says in the OP, they're too overpowered, imo. They make games that are already easy a lot easier with basically no challenge at all.

Would it be too much trouble for me to change the Gen IV section of my Ultimate Fire run from Platinum to Pearl?

I began playing Platinum on an emulator on my phone but I'm finding it runs a little sluggish compared to the older games. I was hoping to play on my handheld DS instead for a smoother experience but I own Pearl and not Platinum.

I started a progression post for Platinum which I will edit and restart for Pearl if this is ok.

Quick question. Rule 5 states you can trade in version exclusives so long as they are in the regional dex.

I switched from Platinum to Pearl which cuts down my fire types significantly, I can only obtain my starter and Ponyta pre-E4.

I wanted to trade over a Platinum exclusive or two so it's not just a two Pokemon bulldoze through the game, but I've realised that Platinum and Pearl do not share a regional pokedex - the fire types available in Platinum are not in Pearl's dex.

Does this mean this challenge must be completed with just the two Pokemon available in Pearl?
