      Finally getting back to my rock run and its going well.

      Easily swept Giovanni in game corner and got Silph Scope.
      Cleared pokemon Tower and got Poke Flute.
      Made it to Fuchsia City and proceeded to the Safari zone.
      Caught a lvl 25 rhyhorn and named it Tommy (felt like calling it Rocky but felt that was too corny but it made me think power rangers so Tommy).
      Found the gold teeth and gave them to the warden for strength.
      Went back to the Safari Zone cause I forgot surf.
      Tried to beat Erika and failed... again (never ending critical hit bull****).
      Started Silph Co. to get earthquake then left.
      Started fighting dojo for training but left the final guy.
      Struggled through Koga's gym because less than half of them actually have poison type pokemon instead of psychic types.
      Beat Koga and gained the abilty to surf.
      Went to Cinnabar island from Pallet town cause it was faster.
      Got an Omanyte called Omar (Helix be praised) and an Aerodactyl called amber from the Fossil reviver guy.
      Finally managed to beat Erika's Tangela and subsequently the rest of her team (she still had bull**** crits).
      Finished fighting dojo because why not.
      Grabbed Hitmonchan cause I felt like it.
      Decided grinding will be easier with EXP All and started to grind captures currently at 25 (15 to 50 sucks).

      Current Team:
      Gene the Graveler lvl 42 strength, rock throw, earthquake, harden
      Onyx the Onix lvl 38 dig, body slam, bind, rock throw
      Tommy the Rhyhorn lvl 33 rock slide, earthquake, horn attack, stomp
      Omar the Lor-Omanyte lvl 30 surf, withdraw, toxic, ice beam
      Amber the Aerodactyl lvl 30 wing attack, rage, fly, swift
      A bulbasaur cause I still need cut sometimes lvl unimportant cut, rest don't matter

      Overall its going well and I really like how its progressing.

          - Made my way through Victory Road
          - Realized my Pokémon weren't quite ready yet and did some training
          - Challenged the Elite 4

            Did the first rival battle, chose Rowlet, so Hau has the starter that's weakest to mine, as it was intended if you use a starter. Caught a Pichu and a Grubbin.
            Returned to the festival and beat Hau again, now I'm at the professor's house.

                  I've finally gotten the time to continue my Emerald Bug Monotype, and so far I've beaten Winona and the last battle against May.

                              Let's try this!!

                              Forum User Name: Mochorro
                              Game(s): Yellow, Heart Gold, Sigma Σmerald, Platinum, White 2 (challenge mode, I want to die xD), X, Sun.
                              Pokémon Type: Fighting
                              Single/Ultimate/Free Mode?: Ultimate!!

                              Ok! I hope to be able to make this! Ultimate challenge is tough and will take long but it will be fun!

                              I already finished the Yellow one, that one wasn't too hard, though a bit surprising. This run was a bit risky because when I started it I didn't remember about Poliwrath and was pretty scared, when I found it was available I thought this could go well. I went with an overleveled Mankey and Primeape through the first part of the game, and then I got a Machop. I was worried about the Pokémon Tower but with Machoke and its Dig attack it was really easy. With Machoke and Primeape I went to Saffron City as soon as I could to get Hitmonlee, and finally with the Good Rod and a little bit of grinding in the Rock Tunnel I got Poliwrath. Poliwrath with Ice Beam and Surf made a lot of battles much easier, especially late in the game. I suffered a loss, to Koga and his Venomoth, it is level 50 and with Psychic it literally destroyed my team. He caught me off guard because I didn't remember he had those Pokémon in Yellow, I was expecting a relatively easy fight against Weezing or Grimer with Machoke's Dig, but it wasn't like that! I was lucky to make it in the second try, don't remember how but it was again pretty close. I have to say Sabrina was much easier than I thought, because her AI is a bit stupid and she didn't use many damaging moves, she spammed Reflect and the weak Psywave. I was expecting a very tough battle, the hardest of the game, but it certainly wasn't like that. The Alakazam that gave me trouble was Champion Blue's one. I don't know if this is valid or not but I just had my HM slave lv 8 Pikachu left and then he suddenly became stupid, didn't attack, and I could heal my whole dead team with Revives. Then I killed it and after that it was quite easy. If this way is not ok due to the use of the Pikachu I can challenge the E4 again xD. I guess I exploited a lot Yellow's horrible AI in this run, in FireRed or LeafGreen it could have gone much worse. Here is the final team:

                              Lv 55
                              Surf, Ice Beam, Submission, Hypnosis.

                              Lv 53
                              Mega Kick, Strength, Jump Kick, Hi Jump Kick.

                              Lv 53
                              Submission, Strength, Thunderbolt, Thrash.

                              Lv 54
                              Rock Slide, Earthquake, Submission, Body Slam.

                              HM Slaves: Pikachu (Flash), Charmander (Cut).

                              Now I'll go for Heart Gold. I'll do my best and try to beat Red there. Really want to see Heracross in action there, although first we will have another Poli friend! I picked Heart Gold because Mankey appears in this game and not in Silver.

                              EDIT: Decided to go for Heart Gold instead of Gold.

                              EDIT2: I read I can play hacks in these challenges, so I am changing Emerald to Sigma Σmerald, a hack based on Emerald!

                                Went to the Aether foundation
                                VS ???(Nihlego)
                                Alolan Marowak with bonemerang 2HKOd easily enough
                                went on to the next island, fought hau again
                                VS Hau
                                this was tough, i mean 2 fully evolved pokes and a mid level starter, yikes. anyway Marowak took a psychic and OHKOd with bonemerang, vaporeon was giving me trouble but torracat managed to use the confide + torment strategy that worked so well on totem wishiwashi to eventually beat it. dartrix was free exp for salandit. (god when i get torkoal that drought will be super helpful)
                                went on to Malie park, met kukui again, beat some team skull grunts off a bus stop and got up to the observatory fought Molayne outside
                                VS Molayne
                                Free exp for salandit on skarmory, magmar dodged a metal claw (he has mud bomb why didnt he use it?) from Dugtrio and KOd back with fire punch before 2HKOing metang with fire punch
                                went inside, beat up the grubbin and charjabugs with salandit
                                VS Totem Vikavolt
                                Salandit knew toxic by this point and thats gg. slapped toxic, took a spark, he called a charjabug, switched for marowak, took a spark, cursed body disabled it, got paralysed by thunder wave. after that it kept spamming charge while charjabug kepts spamming mud slap, rock tomb x2 (one crit) + toxic damage took Vikavolt out, after missing a rock tomb i switched for magmar, took a mud slap, missed fire punch, got thunder waved, 2nd Fire Punch took it out though (its so slow, i outsped it while paralyzed)


                                Update: Ghots might not be flammable, but a spinning Lariat does the trick
                                Spoiler:

                                Went down the mountain, beat all the trainers, went back up, struggled with the Veteran and his absol (yeah i cant use Z moves but the AI can, fair and balanced amirite) foddered Marowak since it couldnt take a night slash anyway, fire fang from torracat crit + burn was nice, took just over half, lived a crit night slash, burn took a bit off then another fire fang finished, got snarl. could be useful on incineroar later if i need to use the confide strategy again since its basically damaging confide.
                                went down the mountain, salandit evolved into Salazzle, got to the garden again
                                VS Ya Boi
                                Magmar got outsped and smashed with razor shell at least flame body burned golisopod, sent in salazzle, flame burst did a lot of damage and forced the emergency exit, ariados came in and i set up some nasty plots, flame burst took it out then another took out golisopod
                                went towards aether building, bypassing the hill where torkoal is like a moron, doubled back before the trial and caught Tetsudo the Torkoal, showed how badass Drought is by having torkoal single handedly take down a fisherman with a gyarados. on a route thats usually permanent rain. Torkoal took out most of the ghosts in the supermarket
                                VS Totem Dollar Store Pikachu
                                Incineroar wouldve destroyed him if not for the freaking haunter never missing hypnosis, managed to torment him and get a bulk up, sadly he mimiced torment so i couldnt bulk up again, eventually (and i do mean eventually) after like 5 hyper potions haunter missed hypnosis and i broke the disguise with darkest lariat, haunter missed again and i got another bulk up then dodged a 3rd hypnosis to take out mimikyu with a darkest lariat. haunter went for night shade and then ate a darkest lariat for the KO

                                  The Ultimate Monotype Challenge!

                                  2. Pokémon HeartGold Water Fighting Monotype update 1!

                                  Ok, I started the run! Fighting-types appear quite late in this game (you need the Old Rod to get a Poliwag, which is quite rare, and you don't get the Old Rod until you reach the Pokémon Center near Union Cave). So, I picked Cyndaquil and went as fast as I could through the Bellsprout Tower and the first Gym, then I reached the Pokémon Center at Route 32 to get the Old Rod. Then I backtracked to Route 31 and fished for a while (thankfully not for too long!) until I got a lv 10 Poliwag! I caught it, and it now follows me everywhere. I battled all the trainers I had left behind (some fishermen), which were quite tough because I only had Bubble until at level 11 Poliwag learnt Water Gun. We suffered our first loss to the Fisherman with Goldeen. I was not doing enough damage and it kept using Leer until it ended killing me with Peck when I only needed one more attack to finish it off. I got a Shell Bell, equipped it to Poliwag, and went through Union Cave quite easily (the trainer with Slowpoke was a bit hard but my Poliwag had already learnt DoubleSlap, which made it a bit easier.) I ended up reaching Route 33 and Azalea Town. I am closer to getting Heracross, but until that, things are gonna be pretty tough... I hope that Poliwag can beat Bugsy and the rival all by himself (I didn't think about this, but thankfully he doesn't have Bayleef!)

                                  Current Team:

                                  Lv 16 Poliwag (Shell Bell). Hardy Nature. Male. Water Gun, DoubleSlap, Hypnosis, Bubble.

                                      The Ultimate Monotype Challenge!

                                      2. Pokémon HeartGold Fighting Monotype update 2!

                                      Last time I stopped playing at Azalea Town and now my Poliwag has destroyed Team Rocket there, reaching level 20! But then...

                                      Just 2 words. F*** Bugsy. My Poliwag suffered loss after loss to his Scyther. I don't have to explain many things, just look at this:



                                      The picture says it all... I use my X Accuracy (for Hypnosis), and my X Defense (although he negates it with Leer...) His U-turn does insane damage, and Leer and specially Focus Energy make it extremely dangerous (a crit is a one-hit ko). I try to force him to use his Super Potion on Metapod or Kakuna and set up the rain against those. Though it's no use, and as I lose these items I have no choice but to reset after the battle to keep them. I learnt, though, that Poliwag learns Body Slam at lv 21, so maybe I have a chance with that move, Water Gun is weak, even with Rain up... Will tell later today how the fight went!

                                      Current Team:


                                      Lv 20 Poliwag (Shell Bell). Hardy Nature. Male. Water Gun, DoubleSlap, Hypnosis, Rain Dance.

                                        I'm cancelling my Platinum Grass monotype and switching to a White Normal monotype. Too much honey tree grinding for me, but I may pick it up in the future.

                                          The Ultimate Monotype Challenge!

                                          2. Pokémon HeartGold Fighting Monotype update No. 3!

                                          I finally made it! I beat that Scyther! Grinding just one more level made things much easier, with Body Slam Poliwag koed the Scyther in 4 hits (factoring Sitrus Berry recovery), and it also Paralyzed him. After a Leer his U-turn left me with 3 HP so there was a scary moment there, but I could heal comfortably against Metapod and after that I won quite easily. After this battle, the rival was no match for my lv 22 Poliwag with Body Slam, Croconaw just fell very easily, and Zubat and Gastly didn't do anyhing theatening. Next up was Ilex Forest, where I finally got Headbutt to catch Heracross... and I suffered my 8th loss in the run (what an awful number for so early in the game...)

                                          I was having fun before backtracking to get Heracross, catching a few Pokémon using Headbutt, one of them was a Pineco, only a Lv 6 Pineco. You know now what happened, right? My Poliwag had almost full health, but Pineco used Selfdestruct... and it was a critical hit. I couldn't believe it. One more loss, and quite a stupid one... Well, I went back to Route 33 to get a lv 4 Heracross there. It was Brave, a decent nature as it will be very strong but not very fast. I grinded it a bit through Ilex Forest and Route 34. Heracross is proving to be an outstanding Pokémon, even with only Horn Attack it deals a lot of damage. I caught the Drowzee needed to get Machop at Goldenrod. That's the first thing I did there, I went to the department store to do the trade. I don't know if it is a set nature or not but I can say Lonely is quite decent for a Machop (+Atk). And after getting a few items in Goldenrod, I stopped playing. Now I have to level up a bit the Machop and the Heracross, exploring every possible place before battling Whitney, which I honestly expect to be quite easy. I guess from now on the game will become quite easier, with Heracross and Machop helping Poliwag. I guess (or rather, I hope!) my number of losses won't go up for quite a bit of time. It has been quite challenging and interesting going with Poliwag alone through some tough battles, though!

                                          EDIT: 2. Pokémon HeartGold Fighting Monotype update No. 4!

                                          As I suspected, with Heracross and Machop the game became much easier, I have everything much more under control. Heracross is... a bit broken. It learnt Brick Break battling the trainers at the National Park and route 35, at lv 19, and with that move Whitney was extremely easy. Her Miltank made it flinch twice with Stomp, but Brick Break left her in red and the Super Potion didn't heal enough, with one more hit she fell! So I got my third badge! Next up was Ecruteak City. The first thing I did there was getting the HM 03 Surf for Poliwag and the Dowsing Machine, and then went east to Route 42, getting HM 04 Strength and a TM containing Shadow Claw and going through Mt. Mortar to get a Mankey outside. I also reached Mahogany Town, but just to make it flyable to, I didn't explore it. The Mankey was lv 15 and Naughty, a quite decent nature. I taught my team some moves like Payback for Machop, U-turn for Mankey and Shadow Claw for Heracross using TMs. Then I began using Mankey, and also beat the rival easily at the Burned Tower.

                                          With Heracross and its Shadow Claw, Morty was quite the joke to be honest; only Gengar survived. He put me to Sleep and hit me with Shadow Ball but I woke up early and easily killed him. So now I have 4 badges! Also Poliwag has evolved into Poliwhirl! Time to go west to Route 37, using Mankey as it is a bit weaker than the rest!

                                              Wow you really leveled up that Blastoise, it's going to make the game easy! By the way, is it Lapras the other Pokémon you plan to add? Anyways, here comes another update!

                                              The Ultimate Monotype Challenge!

                                              2. Pokémon HeartGold Fighting Monotype update No. 5!

                                              I left last time I updated at Route 37, but I realized I could use Surf in the overworld now, and decided to explore the world using it! I have done a lot of backtracking, beating trainers at Route 34 for a Power Herb, surfing in Cherrygrove to get some Mystic Water for Poliwhirl, clearing the 4 Ruins of Alph puzzles... I even set my feet in Kanto! By the way, I almost caught Entei, an Ultra Ball span 3 times! I had a few tough battles at the Ruins, with a quite strong Girafarig for my team and a few Selfdestructing Geodudes on my way there through Union Cave. I also got the TM for Drain Punch, but for now I keep it, I don't know who I will be teaching it to; and a Silk Scarf from my mother which was given to Primeape. After all of this, I kept going and reached Olivine City, where in the Lighthouse I got 2 evolutions! Mankey became Primeape and Machop Machoke! Now Jasmine told me to look for medicine for Ampharos, and that is the next thing to do! By the way I plan to evolve Machoke when it reaches lv 40.
