I did not do much in my game yesterday. My events of yesterday started with me going back to Vermillion by taking Diglett's Cave. After getting through Diglett's Cave, I headed back to Cerulean to get to Route 9. Nothing to eventful happened on Route 9 except for the fact that Garland evolved to its final form. I also caught a Voltorb, whom I taught Teleport and Flash to. My next objective is to go through Rock Tunnel. I have seen 63 Pokemon and owned 18.

Since my last update I've beat Sabrina and Koga. They honestly weren't too hard despite being way higher levelled than me. I've trained my team to the even thirties which feels pretty good! I also have a complete team now as Aerodactyl has joined us finally. Lapras is gonna get some work in at Blaine and Giovanni's Gyms but honestly I'm a bit concerned about Pikachu. It seems to be falling behind pretty severely.

    The Fighting Dojo was as easy as I expected it to be. I chose Hitmonchan so I could trade it to my brother and let him have both. I can just use the Mew Glitch and get both Hitmons anyway. Silph Co was of course a rather long grindfest. I started by going straight to the 5th floor, grabbing the Card Key, and then completing Silph Co. in floor order so I don't miss anything. I let Nikola destroy Blue's team alone, and had Raff solo Giovanni. Both were easy and not really worth going into detail. After getting Lapras (boxed) and the Master Ball, I could finally leave!

    Having bought a Poke Doll earlier, I visited the Copycat's house and trader her the Doll for the Mimic TM (and helped myself to the Nugget hidden on her desk). Time for Sabrina! As usual, Eric tanked and destroyed everything (although the Gastly and Haunter were kinda annoying). Eric took out all of Sabrina's Pokemon in one hit, and the Marsh Badge and Psywave TM are ours! Thank you for the awesome job Eric!

    Next time, we take on Routes 19 and 20, Seafoam Islands (saving Articuno for later), Cinnabar Island, and maybe mess around with the Old Man Glitch!

    Current team:
    Nikola the Raichu (Lv. 41)
    Isabella the Nidoqueen (Lv. 42)
    Eric the Snorlax (Lv. 43)
    Chelsea the Vaporeon (Lv. 41)
    Rafflesia the Vileplume (Lv. 41)
    Charles the Charizard (Lv. 42)

        I spent my day kicking Team Rocket's ass in the HQ, then did some more at the Pokemon Tower, caught Snorlax (ah the ol' Gen I mechanic of the Pokeball missing completely on harder-to-catch Mons I missed you) and currently getting the Rainbow Badge.

        Got off to an interesting start. So after I caught myself Spearow and Nidoran, I went to Brock after I have my Nidoran, Dash, learn Double Kick. I decided to go against the trainer inside the gym so Dash can gain some experience, but then it got defeated by a Sandshrew, lol. I thought there was going to be one other trainer, so I trained Dash a bit more until it evolved into a Nidorino. However, there's just Brock lol. I defeated him easily, at least.

        After finishing the gym battle, I totally forgot you can battle your rival at Route 22. So I backtracked to see if he's still there, but nope he didn't. Hey, it's been several years since I last played first gen lol.

        Shortly after training Hamilton, my Pikachu, and Bell, from a Spearow to Fearow, I went to Mt. Moon. I was in the last section of the cave and I came across a Paras. I had Dash battling it, but it then got struck by Stun Spore and paralyzed, lol. I didn't stock up on paralyze heal nor antidotes due to me purchasing potions and pokeballs mostly, so I used the Escape Rope to go back to Pewter City and stock up on those since I got some money from battling trainers and Team Rocket.

        Now I just recently entered Cerulean City, but I stopped the game there and will resume soon.

          Just beat Blaine! I'm going to go take on Giovanni now and hope that I can win. I feel like my team is super under-levelled but I don't really want to go grind for ages. I've fought most of the relevant trainers too. I also recently introduced Jolteon into my team! It's proving to be a good team member.

          I did a lot in my game yesterday. My events started with me going through Rock Tunnel. I did manage to catch a Machop, but ended up wasting all of my remaining Pokeballs attempting to catch an Onix. Course going through there took quite a bit on Garland and Kefka. After going through there, I made it to Lavender Town.

          While I was in Lavender Town, I stocked up on Great Balls. I then headed on Route 8 to the Underground Path that led to Celadon City. While I was in Celadon City, I obtained Eevee. Course since I was not going to use it on my team, I evolved it into Vaporeon. I also obtained TMs 13, 18, 48, and 49. I then proceeded to teach Garland and Kefka new moves.

          I then headed to the Game Corner, where apparently my skills at slots had not gotten rusty since I managed to line up three 7s on a diagonal. After that, I made my way through the Team Rocket Hideout. While I was there I battled Giovanni to get the Silph Scope. I then headed to the Prize Corner to get an Abra. Then I headed to the gym where I battled Erika.

          After I beat Erika, I decided to go to make a stop at Saffron. While I was in Saffron, I obtained TM29 from Mr. Psychic. I then went to the Fighting Dojo, where I obtained my third team member. After that, I made a quick stop over at Route 2 to trade Abra for Mr. Mime. Then it was time to head back to Lavender Town to go through Pokemon Tower.

          While I was in Pokemon Tower, I caught a Gastly, but accidentally fainted a wild Haunter. I then reached the top where I saved Mr Fuji. After that I received the Pokeflute. I then headed west of Celedon where I caught my fourth party member. I then headed on Cycling Road and made it to Fuchsia City. My next objectives are to battle Koga and do the Safari Zone. I have seen 92 Pokemon and owned 27.

            This will be my final Yellow entry. After a few attempts I finally beat the E4! It wasn't easy but I did it and I'm feeling good.

            And let me tell you guys. Clefable is the main MVP.

              I have been playing quite a bit on my Virtual Console version of Yellow. Today, I managed to beat Koga with my team mostly around levels 30-35. That was only because I used my Ninetales' Flamethrower to burn through Koga's three Venonat and his Level 50 Venomoth. I don't recall his team being this highly leveled... XD

              Currently, I am trying to level grind my team a bit before saving Silph Co. from Team Rocket.

              Player name: Buddy
              Time: 17:09

              Current Team:

              -Amber (Magmar, Level 15...thanks, Mew glitch!)
              -Jin (Farfetch'd, Level 35)
              -Renee (Wartortle, Level 33)

              Did the usual Cerulean City stuff tonight. I first beat Misty, then after that went to the bridge and dealt with Team Rocket. Along the way I got Charmander as a gift, named him Zuko, and visited Bill. Trained Zuko until he evolved into Charmelon. Thinking I'll go ahead to Vermillion City next. Oh, and used the moonstone to evolve Dash into Nidoking as his Yellow movepool isn't too great without TMs, lol.

                  Playing Yellow. Here is a summary of what I've done so far:
                  - Got Pikachu. Caught Mankey and Caterpie near Viridian City. Evolved Caterpie to Butterfree.
                  - Beat Brock using Mankey.
                  - Crossed Mount Moon. Got the Dome Fossil.
                  - Caught Abra on Route 5. I didn't know that Abra are no longer found on Routes 24 and 25 and spent a lot of time searching for one there. Performed Mew Glitch using the trainer on Route 24. Also got Charmander there.
                  - Beat Misty using Butterfree and Pikachu. Put Butterfree and Mankey in the Box.
                  - Got Bulbasaur. This one has a really good Special stat, must have very high DVs.
                  - Went to SS Anne, got Cut and beat Surge. Went back to Route 2 via Diglett's Cave. Bulbasaur evolved into Ivysaur here.
                  - I came back to Cerulean City via Mount Moon, and crossed the Rock Tunnel to reach Lavender Town. Butterfree was my Flash Pokemon and designated Zubat killer. Charmander and Squirtle evolved in the Cave.

                  So far I have caught every single Pokémon available on all the routes so far. I haven't evolved them all yet.
                  Also all Pokémon are under level 30. I am taking care to not get them overlevelled.

                  I did not do much yesterday. My events started with me getting the Good Rod. I then headed over to the Safari Zone to catch more Pokemon. While I was there, I encountered a wild Kangaskhan which ran after I attempted to catch it. I was a lot more successful with the second wild Pinsir I encountered. I then headed over to the gym to battle Koga.

                  The battle with Koga was interesting. During the battle, I managed to freeze his Weezing despite the fact that Garland has gotten poisoned by it earlier. After I defeated Koga, I headed a bit east of Route 11 to get the Itemfinder. I then flew back to Saffron to get ready to remove Team Rocket from Silph Co. My next objective is to go through Silph Co. to get rid of Team Rocket. I have seen 99 Pokemon and owned 34.

                  Today I managed to clear out the route East of Cerulean City, Rock Tunnel, and the route above Lavender Town. Hit the Pokemon Center in Lavender Town and saved.

                  Current team:
                  Wartortle (Level 30)
                  Nidorina (Level 29)
                  Parasect (Level 30)

                  I plan on using the Moon Stone on Nidorina once it hits level 30, and hopefully I'll be adding a fourth team member soon.

                  Some new stuff happened. I visited Vermillion City, and after a bit of detour went to the route pass Diglett's cave to catch myself a Drowzee. I then trained my Pokemon in Diglett's Cave after someone in one of the threads said it's a decent place to grind. That proved to be frustrating at times because sometimes the Diglett (and Dugtrio) can outspeed you with Dig, lol. I then decided to go to SS Anne with me able to defeat my rival fairly easy with just my Charmelon. Same thing when I went against Lt Surge. Last thing I did was making a short pitstop to get Flash.

                  Trying to decide now if I should grind a bit more in Diglett's Cave or go forward with the main story and head to Rock Tunnel/Lavender Town. I do want to get myself my last team member though (Eevee/Vaporeon)...

                  I finally got the game after some unexpected challenges.

                  I started! Whoo! Got my starter and went to Route 22 to capture Nidoran, which was a pain. I didn't realize how bad a 5% encounter rate was, I killed the first Nidoran because it was Lv. 3 and I wanted a Lv. 4. Then it took me an hour to find the next Nidoran and when I found it I did one Tackle and it was a critical hit and fainted Nidoran. Finally, I found another after 15 minutes, caught it and as I was leaving the grass a wild Pokemon appeared... yeah, you guessed it Nidoran. -____-;

                  Here's my team before I face Brock:


                  Hathor Lv. 16
                  - Tackle
                  - Tail Whip
                  - Bubble
                  - Water Gun


                  Horus Lv. 12
                  - Leer
                  - Tackle
                  - Horn Attack

                  [ Haven't had many chances to play this week since I was busy but now it's the weekend and I have a little more time. <3

                  Got out of Cerulean Cave finally and defeated Misty. Glad I have Pikachu and Thunder Wave since it was so insanely helpful this fight, especially with Pika's low defenses. Almost on my way to Thunderbolt.

                  This was also my first time doing the Mew glitch... ever. So I'm proud to finally have one of my own even if it wasn't obtained in the most legitimate way.

                  Current Team:


                  Mankey | Lv. 21
                  Scratch, Dig, Low Kick, Karate Chop


                  Pikachu | Lv. 21
                  Thundershock, Quick Attack, Double Team, Thunder Wave


                  Spearow | Lv. 12
                  Peck, Growl, Leer


                  Clefable | Lv. 20
                  Pound, Growl, Thunder Wave, Bubble Beam
                  (need Body Slam for her gah!)


                  Oddish | Lv. 12
                  Absorb


                  Mew | Lv. 7
                  Pound

                  I decided to not use a flyer on my team and only have it for the HM since I've already planned out five team members and it's getting hard to fit in another without being severely underleveled.

                  Time to make my way to Vermillion and train this little pink ball of cute! :D ]

                    After taking a two day break from the game, I decided to play again and progress through the water routes. Everyone except Eric (even Charles and Isabella despite the type disadvantage) all gained a level or two from defeating all the swimmers. After reaching Cinnabar Island from Pallet Town (and abusing the Old Man Glitch while I was there, yay cloned Master Balls!), I decided to head to Seafoam Islands to catch stuff. Despite saying I'll leave Articuno for later, I changed my mind and decided to battle it now (even though I'm very underleveled). Instead of just lobbing my Master Ball at Articuno, I decided to try to capture the Ice Bird without it first. Thankfully, it didn't fire an Ice Beam at Raff while I was trying to put it to sleep. She wasn't even 2HKOed by Peck! It's either because Peck is weak, Raff is awesome, or both! Anyway, four Ultra Balls later, and Articuno was caught! Then I reset the game and lobbed the cloned Master Ball at it. At least you have Mew to keep you company in the Box, Articuno. The other birds and Mewtwo will eventually join you guys, too!

                    I didn't really do much else yet in Cinnabar Island, and I completely ignored the lab. None of the trades interest me, Metronome is too inconsistent to be worth picking up, and since I can Mew Glitch the fossils, I don't need to revive them. Next time, Pokemon Mansion, Chelsea destroying Blaine and the rest of his Gym, Power Plant and Zapdos, and grind for Giovanni if necessary.

                    Current team:
                    Nikola the Raichu (Lv. 43)
                    Isabella the Nidoqueen (Lv. 43)
                    Eric the Snorlax (Lv. 43)
                    Chelsea the Vaporeon (Lv. 43)
                    Rafflesia the Vileplume (Lv. 43)
                    Charles the Charizard (Lv. 43)

                      Well... despite having a full team on my Red version, I still wasn't satisfied. Something bugged me. And then I got what it was: Mew. It is great, but I don't like using legendaries. Last time I played Red (after replacing my battery on the Red cartridge and to try out the Super Game Boy) I used Mew on my team as half HM slave, half last resort. This time, however, I decided to put it into a box and pick another Psychic-type Pokémon. I opened my notepad and planned out the teams for the other two versions, with the intent of not using the same Pokémon more than once. After thinking about what Psychic-type I could use to replace Mew, I ended up choosing Hypno. The problem was, however, that there was no one left on my team who could use Fly. Charizard was an obvious candidate for that, but he can't learn Fly in Pokémon Red! So... I put the Red version on stasis and started the Yellow version for the time being, all I wanted was to get to the point where I'd get the HM02, then trade my Charizard from Red there, teach it Fly, send it back and resume playing Red.

                      Red playthrough stops here. Yellow playthrough starts here.

                      So, here I am, Yellow version. Just like what I did in Red, I did some grinding from the very start, demolished Blue west of Viridian City and returned to Pallet Town to get my free 5 Pokéballs. Between the free balls and the ones I bought, I could catch quite a few Pokémon, but ended up boxing all of them, except for a Nidoran♂ who stayed on my team.

                      During the trek through Viridian Forest, I used Nidoran♂ almost exclusively (especially against cocoon Pokémon, for more experience ) and by the time I got to Pewter City, it knew Double Kick. Brock went down without a problem. Not much to say about what happened in Route 4 and Mt Moon, everything went as planned.

                      I got to Cerulean, fought Blue and got to Bill's house. In the meantime, Nidoran♂ tried evolving, but I held it back: it was one level away from learning Poison Pin, so I thought I'd just let it learn it. One level later, I let it evolve. By the way, I got both Bulbasaur and Charmander, and simply boxed them. Every time I play Yellow, I feel obligated to use the three starters, this time I made a conscious effort to NOT use them. Besides, I already had a Poison type in Nidorino.

                      I got back to Cerulean, battled the Team Rocket member and went south to capture an Abra... yeah, the Mew glitch just became a thing for me to do every time I play Gen 1. I caught Mew, and then boxed both Mew and Abra, as I had another Psychic-type in mind. I followed with a battle against Misty, where I used Pikachu's Double Team a lot during the battle against Staryu, and Starmie couldn't touch me even once.

                      What I did after this was... less orthodox. I traded Pikachu and a Sandshrew to my Red version and taught them Flash and Cut respectively before trading them back. Instead of going to Vermillion , I decided to go to the Rock Tunnel, at first simply because I wanted to add the next member to my team: Machop. Right then and there, I realized that both my Pokémon were weak against Ground-types, and there were a lot of Hikers on the route leading to the Rock Tunnel, but I persisted. Despite having lost three times, I persisted and emerged victorious. In the meantime, I ended up giving my Nidorino a Moon Stone, and the Dig TM to a Machop I caught and kept as a permanent member of my team.

                      I headed to Celadon, got the HM02... and then just decided to keep playing until I got my entire team in Yellow as well, which was not shaping up to be an easy task, as the Flying Pokémon I wanted on my team was Aerodactyl, which meant I had to go to Cinnabar Island. But, whatever, I persisted. I went to the Rocket Hideout, wiping most of the guys with Machop using Dig, and Machop ended up evolving. As soon as it did, I traded it back and forth to make it evolve again. I then went to meet Giovanni for the first time, and between Tunnel and Low Kick, Machamp had no problem with Giovanni at all.

                      I bought a drink for the guard and unlocked Saffron. Before going to Lavender Town, I decided to at least be chronologically consistent with meeting Blue and, before going to the Pokémon Tower, went to the SS Anne (battling trainers on the route between Saffron and Vermilion) simply to meet and battle him. Immediately after this, I went back to the Pokémon Tower and met him there again. And after that I realized, once more, that I might be a little underleveled for this place: the Ghost Pokémon dominated over me with Night Shade. But I kept pressing on, and eventually found Mr Fuji, who gave me the Pokéflute.

                      I went south, captured the first Snorlax, and received the Super Rod, which was instrumental to get the Water Pokémon I had in mind. Immediately after this, I captured the other Snorlax and, while avoiding absolutely everyone on the Cycling Road, fished out and caught the fourth member of my team: a Shellder. Immediately upon arriving to Fuschia, I went to the Safari Zone and, while looking for the Surf HM and Baoba's dentures, I caught the fifth member of my team: Exeggcute.

                      To make my team complete, I needed to be able to use Surf. But for that, I needed to battle Koga. As my third Gym Leader! And, predictably enough, between being absolutely underleveled and my two most powerful Pokémon (Nidoking and Machamp) being weak to Psychic-type moves that Koga's minions absolutely love to use (and, by the way: it is supposed to be a POISON-type Gym, guys!!!) , I got my rear end handed to me more times than necessary. But, being stubborn, I persisted. With a team varying between levels 20 and 35, Koga's level 40-50 Pokémon were a pain! I used Pikachu's Double Team a lot during my battle against the three Venonats, but the last one ended up knocking it out. I lucked out against the level 50 Venomoth: my low-levelled Shellder managed to use Supersonic on it, and got knocked out immediately after; and then Machamp finished the bug off with two or three uses of Strength while Venomoth battled with its own confusion. And that's how I got the Soul Badge as my third badge... yeah, I've said before, this is one unorthodox playthrough.

                      Without Lt Surge's badge, I couldn't use Fly, so I travelled back to Pewter City through the Cycling Road (again, while avoiding everybody) and Diglett's Cave. I got the Old Amber, pulled the Sandshrew with Cut from the PC, went south while bypassing the Viridian Forest (I got the HM05 while I was at it), and then went straight to Cinnabar Island to revive Aerodactyl. I then headed back north to Pewter City (going through Viridian Forest this time, as Sandshrew went back to the box the moment I got Aerodactyl) and crossed Diglett's Cave.

                      This is when I decided to get the playthrough back on track and train my new recruits while I was at it. The SS Anne was my next destination. But then, I remembered why I started this playthrough in the first place: I needed Fly for my Charizard on Pokémon Red. So I traded Charizard here and taught it Fly before trading it back.

                      So, my Yellow team, as of now, is:
                      • Pikachu L33
                      • Nidoking L30
                      • Machamp L36
                      • Shellder (I still want it to learn good moves before evolving it) L26
                      • Exeggcute (ditto) L27
                      • Aerodactyl L30

                      Yellow playthrough stops here. Red playthrough resumes here.

                      And now I was back to Red.
                      With Charizard knowing Fly, Mew went back to the PC, and a previously caught (and ignored) Drowzee replaced it and learned Flash. I wiped out everyone on the route between Lavender and Saffron, and then went for Erika's Gym. Drowzee was still too weak, so I ended up switching it after the first turn every time I called it, and by the time I got to Erika herself, most of my team were either poisoned or paralyzed because of that. Nevertheless, I prevailed thanks to Charizard and Fly.

                      After this, I caught the other Snorlax (the one south of Lavender) and ended up wiping out everyone on the routes between Lavender, Fuschia and Celadon. As a result, Seel and Drowzee both evolved.

                      I'm now entering the Sylph Co building. I'm not going to just go to the end, I fully intend on beating each and every one of the Team Rocket members present there.

                      Team:
                      • Charizard L37
                      • Parasect L34
                      • Golem L35
                      • Electabuzz L36
                      • Dewgong L35
                      • Hypno L35

                      More stuff happened in today's playthrough. After going through Rock Tunnel, visited Lavender Town a brief moment before heading to Celadon City. I went to the mansion to get Eevee, which I nicknamed Undyne, and then went to the department store so I can buy a water stone and evolved it into a Vaporeon. I then bought some Fresh Water for the girl so that I can get Ice Beam, but I gave water to her twice because my items my full lol (I went to sell some TMs I don't need).

                      Next I went against Erika's gym. The battles weren't that hard, but the annoying parts were how my Charmelon kept getting poisoned and paralyzed. Even worse when some of them would use Wrap/Bind. @_@ Nonetheless, I was able to get my fourth badge in the end.

                      My next objective is going to Rocket's Hideout in the game corner. WELCOME TO GIOVANNI'S WILD RIDE, I WANT TO GET OFF. (coughs) Anyways, there were times where I had to go back and forth going to the game corner and Pokemon Center because my bag keeps getting filled up, bleh. Eventually I was able to get to him and finished him off easily.

                      Last thing I did today was going to the Pokemon Tower. Met Blue/Gary there, able to take care of him easily. Like in the Rocket Hideout, my bag keeps getting filled up, so because I don't want to go back to the Pokemon Center I ended up letting Hamilton use the Rare Candies and HP Ups, lol. Got to see the mama Marowak, then after that dealt with the TR Trio and got the Pokeflute. Haven't dealt with Snorlax, but will do that on my next playthrough.

                      I think what I'll do next is go Fushia Gym and Safari Zone so that I can get Surf for Undyne. She needs one good Water Move. Will hold off Saffron City stuff later.
