I'll try to patch it myself but I'll let you know if I run into any trouble.

EDIT: I have patched the game and it works great so far! I've just beaten Hugh for the first time, I even recorded a test video for it:


It's kinda laggy but that was because I was testing to see how good XSplit is at recording.

I updated my first post with the stuff I've done earlier today, mostly catching pokémon. I didn't feel like grinding any more for Burgh.

Update on Grass Monotype
Spoiler:

Beat Roxie with Sidney the Servine
Received TM Venoshock from Roxie
Traded in Rebecca the Cottonee at Level 16
Received HM01 cut from Roxie
Received HM04 from Rival Paul
Filmed a Strange Ending at Pokestar Studios with Sidney the Servine


Battle with Roxie
Spoiler:

Paige approached the Poison Gym Leader having dispatched all of her trainers.
'Don't I know you from somewhere?' The leader asked. 'Whatever, I'll knock some sense into you.'
Roxie sent out Koffing, Paige sent out Sidney the Servine.
'A Grass Pokémon' Roxie laughed 'Didn't that Cheren teach you anything...I am all Poison type.'
Paige was impassive and ordered Sidney to use Tackle.

Sidney used Tackle, Koffing used Smog, this cycle continued into Roxie used a Super Potion.
'Why am I not hurting you.' Roxie yelled. 'Are you using magic or something?'
Sidney used Tackle, Smog, Tackle Critical Hit..Koffing fainted.
'Impossible.' Roxie said. 'No matter, Shows over for you...Go Whirlipede.'
A Purple ball like Pokemon with a Yellow Eye was sent out. Paige and Sidney were undeterred.

Sidney used Leech Seed, Whirlipede used Venoshock...Sidney was hurt.
'See that.' Roxie yelled. 'Time to finish you off.'
Paige nodded at Sidney and told him to Fight through, his health restored slightly by Leech Seed.
Sidney used Tackle, Venoshock, Tackle,Venoshock. Seeing Sidney hurt Paige used a Fresh Water.
'What is that guide playing at giving you that.' Roxie said clearly frustrated. 'You are still finished.'

Sidney used Tackle and caught Whirlipede off guard severely denting him. Roxie ordered Venoshock again, Sidney was unfazed.
Paige smiled and told Sidney to go for tackle once more. It hit again and the purple wheel Pokemon collapsed, unable to continue. Paige had won.

'Well...You won.' Roxie said. 'Guess having a type advantage isn't everything.'
Paige nodded and thanked Roxie for the battle.
'Take this badge and my favourite TM.' Roxie continued. 'You just might be something special you know.'

Little did Paige know that a woman in White jeans and a pink crop top was watching and was impressed with what she saw.

Just trying to get your attention honestly
Burgh was kinda really hard with most of his pokémon knowing Grass moves and me having no revives yet. I updated my first post with the stuff I did today.

Hahaha, you!

Let's see, if Geodude and Roggenrola have retained their Sturdy Ability from the officials, remember to take advantage of it.

If they are to use the explosive moves, don't hesitate you use those moves. Careful if you have a few members, as well as Masquerain's Intimidate Ability!

Actually if you look at my progress you'd see that I did beat Burgh and even had a video of it.

It's a shame I wasn't able to end my playthrough in time. But the end of the event, doesn't mean an end of my Black 2 game. I'm still going to finish it (but stop making screenshots of every random TM I found :P). Because I still haven't finished a Gen V game yet.

I know the event wasn't much of a real success. I take the responsibility on picking a wrong time as well as for the restricting rules. Please offer us your feedback and suggestions too, it doesn't really matter if it's constructive or a positive one -- feedback and suggestions are welcome!

Once again, I would really really like to thank ya guys for participating. Means a lot, y'all rock!<3 ;)

P.S. You can simply express in this thread, since it's related to the event after all. There's no concern of being off topic. :)

The lack of success was mainly to blame to the timing of the event, just when everybody appeared to be busy, and the deathness of the Pokémon Clubs section in general. If there were more participants, I'm sure the Race would have been a lot more exciting. Nevertheless, I've really enjoyed the piece of the Race I played.

As for some criticism: the point system wasn't always entirely clear. For example it said " Winning a Rival battle (per) gives 25 Pts. (Make sure to not forget!)" , but then you have to read further to notice that "The initial match on Aspertia lookout, Floccesy Ranch match and both initial and rematch with your rival in Driftveil City during post-game do not give points" I think if you just limited it to Gyms, Elite Four and TMs it all would be a lot more clear.

I do admit I put the participant limits on purpose, as this was suppose to be part of a test water event for PoC. But I totally missed the bad timing issue, due to my carelessness and inexperience on organizing events. Nevertheless, a valuable experience and lesson for me!

I actually have to agree on that part. The points, along the rules are so complicating that it can turn off a person. Therefore, should I organize an Amazing Race in the future, I'll try to keep them clear and easy.

Thanks for everything, partner. ^_^
