        Normal monotype
        -Defeated Blaine. Had to keep using Fly against his Rapidash because it kept on using Bounce.
        -Defeated Lt. Surge. Got forced to stall out his Magneton because it kept using Double Team and paralyzing everything. Glad to have Milk Drink and Roost.
        -Defeated Gary...barely. My team was slightly higher level than the majority of his but they were strong. Survived with Pidgeot with only 3 HP left. The rest had fainted. :(
        -Need to do some major leveling since Red's team is in the 80s.

            Monotypes are so much fun. Here's a bit more of my adventure with Water pokémon on pokémon FireRed.
            -Beat Green on the ghost tower on Lavender
            -Went to Celadon get my eevee.
            -Evolved my eevee into my favorite pokémon, Vaporeon.
            -Taught Vaporeon Water Pulse. There goes my first TM...
            -Got the Silph Scope, leveled a few levels on my vaporeon
            -Went to the tower to train a bit with the ghosts and earn a few more levels
            -Beat Marowak and learned Aurora Beam as an added bonus. Get ready Erika, here I come.
            -Won the PokéFlute, fought against snorlax and defeated it. It gave me some trouble, I captured it for my Strength slave.
            -Got the Super Rod, time to do some fishin'!
            -Caught a Horsea!
            -Went to Vermillion to stock up on pokéballs and fished a Shelder!
            -Finally went against Erika, after so many detours... And beat her and her crew with Vaporeon only. Just switched to Gyarados to finish Erika, so that he could earn some Exp.
            -Got Fly, caught a Spearow to be my slave.

            Stopped the game on Celadon.

              I'm having trouble getting my screen caps up, so until I do, I'll have to update textually, and I'll put up the images when I can get them uploaded. Fair warning, without picture uploading working, I got incredibly bored and made my update rather... colourful. Long winded, bitingly sarcastic, incredibly fanfic-like... and colourful.

              Being one of the first two challenges I've ever undertaken, I was well aware that this road ahead of me would be unlike anything I've ever encountered. A true test of my abilities laid at my feet, demanding nothing but calculating strategy and rigorous dilligence. The road would be fraught with danger, and I knew that there would be decisions lying ahead of me that would question the very core nature of my existance. Surprisingly, I encountered the first one far sooner than I had ever expected.

              Am I a boy? Or a girl?

              This earth shattering inquiry rendered me almost catatonic for ten minutes, but finally I regained my composure and sense of self and developed the insight and quick thinking that I needed to formulate an answer. I checked down my shirt and confirmed that I was, in fact, a girl. The next of these trials was not quite as harrowing, but nonetheless rather important. What was my name? This was of course the opportunity to rename myself however I wished. Given the nature of this challenge, surely it would be appropriate for me to name myself related to ghosts, the paranormal, the undead, the other side. Many dark and dreary names that call to mind thoughts and reminiscences about encounters with those beyond the veil called out to me, all eager to be used as my new moniker... I dismissed them all as cliche hogwash and named myself Muffins. Satisfying the bare minimum requirements for starting my journey, I set out from the moving van with high spirits, eager for my first task.

              Said first task was to set my clock. Like a boss. I proceeded to do so before heading off to meet the neighbours at my mother's urging. You know, while she just sat there watching TV. She really ought to get out more, I mean, all that TV is probably why I wound up being named Muffins. So while my mother vegetated and watched Toddlers and Tiaras, I wandered off to meet the neighbours. The friend of my father's that I was supposed to meet wasn't there, and instead I got roped into talking to his wife, who immediately tried to set me up with their son... ew. By the time I had found my rape mace I had been ushered up into his room where, oddly, he wasn't present. Instead, I found a pokeball lying around in the middle of the room. Since it was the only interesting thing there, naturally, I tried to nick it. It was at this point that the boy stormed in, demanding that I get my hands off of his balls. Stop giggling. The conversation veered into small talk briefly when suddenly, the boy, Brendan, dropped this little gem.

              "I wasn't expecting you to be a girl. When I heard that you were a talented gym leader's kid, I assumed you were a guy."

              I'm not quite sure what, exactly, happened following that statement, I remember brief snippets of angry feminist ranting, maniacal laughter and mad ramblings about Y chromasomes. By the time I came to I was being instructed by Professor Birch to go and meet Brendan at Route 103 - god he's even worse than his wife - so he could "show me how to be a trainer"... ew. Also, for some inexplicable reason, I had a Mudkip named Goober under my care. ...I think maybe my mother's penchant for naming is hereditary.

              Goober and I proceeded towards Route 103, slaughtering most anything in our path and only stopping to recuperate at a Pokemon Center was well as receive a complimentary Potion from a PokeMart clerk. How sweet. I then made my way up to see my sexist archnemesis. Surely this would be a harsh battle, Brendan has been raising his pokemon since he was young, and I have just gotten this Mudkip no more than twenty minutes ago, at most. It will be a hard, cruel battle to assert my place in what is appearantly a Man's World and a Man's World only.

              About a minute later I was trying to figure out how this stuck up little boy has survived this long with a Treecko four levels lower than Goober. Regardless, I then had to backtrack all the way back home... it begs the question why I couldn't have just waited at home until Brendan came back... Oh yeah Mom would still be watching Toddlers and Tiaras. You know, maybe I should go for a walk. A walk far, far away. I'll just take this pokedex being shoved at me and use it as an excuse to get as far away from this hick town as possible. As I was leaving, my mother flagged me down, apparently wanting to give me... shoes or something. Whatever. Thanks Mom, go back inside and watch TV.

              I had little patience for the trainers standing in my way, so when I could, I simply just waltzed on by (not literally mind you, that'd just be silly). I was resting in the pokemon center in Petalburg when I realised that this was the town my father was working in. Considering my father was a much more active figure in my life (at least he has WORK as an excuse to not be a part of it...), I figured I should drop in and say hello... and then kick the **** out of him with Goober. Priorities. Dad was glad to see me, and we had a nice little chat before some boy just barged in demanding a pokemon. ...not sure if I want to sound annoyed or d'aww... Appearantly he's actually sick and lonely and moving away, so I suppose I'll go with a d'aww.


              Dad wanted me to escort the sick kid Wally while he caught a pokemon, and since he's the only parental figure I respect, I did. After I finished that up, I was eager to knock my old man down a peg. Unfortunately he wimped out, and told me I needed more badges first. Whatever, I'll just keep going towards the next gym. Goober took care of the few trainers I couldn't just walk past, mostly just a couple of stuck up rich twerps and a bug catcher with a couple of Nincada. Pff, I'll show him how to use Nincada. Upon making it to Rustboro I immediately set off to catch the first pokemon I'd need for my mono ghost type journey. As I said before: Nincada. I was in luck, it was the first pokemon I encountered. I managed to catch it immediately and with great reluctance named it Jimbo. (It appears that it won't respond to "The Great Jimbodini", too much for it to remember.) Goober's services were no longer required, so I sent it off into the PC to go become a Digimon. Goobermon. I like the sound of that... something that concerns me greatly.

              Jimbo and I immediately threw ourselves into a training montage of Rocky proportions, unfortunately I could procure the rights to neither "Eye of the Tiger" or "You're The Best Around", so we instead level grinded to the inspiring song "Banana Phone". I doubled back and fought all of the trainers I had previously ignored, as well as caught two other Nincada as reserves, the breeding pair of Margie and Reggie. (Don't tell them they're a breeding pair though. They don't know yet. I plan to pull a Hojo and surprise them with it. : D)

              By the time I was done training my future Shedinja army for Rustboro gym, Jimbo was an impressive level. ...the other two were far less impressive. But that's why they take point. Roxanne proved to be a particularly arduous opponent, generally because she kept making her pokemon curl up into the fetal position like little sobbing wusses. Just because I was throwing sand in their face, jeez. My invertebrae pokemon have more backbone than that. Somehow, both Margie and Reggie got flatted by a bawling Geodude, so Jimbo had to step in and show everyone who's boss. A few Hardens made the attacks of those big babies worthless, and a relentless, surgical application of Cuts and Leech Lifes brought both Geodude down. Beating up a pair of cowering rocks with butch arms appearantly made Jimbo figure out how to use Fury Swipes, and once he used up all of his Sand Attacks on Nosepass, he put them to work. It took a couple dozen slashes, but the giant Mario-nosed statue went down like the rest. Muffins One, Hoenn League DICK ALL, BABY!

              The Great Jimbodini, Male Nincada at Level 15

                  I haven't updated in a long time since I'm still trying to get a Yanma in HeartGold. I've spent 6 Hours looking for it, it's good experience, but its a pain.

                  Any tips? All is can think of is keep changing the day in my DS Settings until it swarms, but i don't really want to do that.

                  EDIT: Okay, so right after I post that, I find a Yanma. So here's my update!

                  -Skipped Trainers on Route 35
                  -Caught Scyther
                  -Named her Erza; after the character of the same name in Fairy Tail
                  -Grinded Erza to Level 19

                  -Began Searching for Yanma

                            Next monotype to finish is Poison, on Black 2:

                            Update on Ultimate Monotype Challenge (Poison).

                            Update #1 on Black 2.

                            Name: Roman
                            Rival: Gorman
                            Starter: Snivy
                            • Used a code to activate Challenge Mode, then set off.
                            • Beat the first gym with Snivy, then caught Pendra the Venipede on Route 20.
                            • Got to Virbank City and the Complex, where I got Deadhead the Koffing.
                            • Trained them up, then challenged the gym. Roxie was soloed by Pendra's Rollout.
                            • Defeated the TP Grunts and did the PokeStar Studio, then sailed to Castelia City.
                            • Wen to the Sewers and caught Count the Zubat.
                            • Beat all the trainers I could find in the city, and Pendra and Count evoled!
                            • Took on the gym, and while Burgh's Dwebble was annoying as always, he wasn't too difficult to defeat.
                            • Continued on through Route 4 and beat Colress, then reached Nimbasa City, where I saved.

                                I thought now would be the best time to play B2/W2, so I found out why the ROM's weren't working for me and they started working. So I'll do one more gym after this then go back to Kanto. I myself believe that the requirements for B/W should be to beat Ghetsis, but because they aren't, I do them one gym ahead so I can add the Elite Four Rematch as the last thing I do.

                                -Began game
                                -Named myself Crackin
                                -Named my Rival Pepsi
                                -Chose Oshawott
                                -Caught Sewaddle
                                -Named him Geoff; after Geoff from Rooster Teeth
                                -Grinded a bit
                                -Found the lost Herdier
                                -VS Cheren
                                --VS Patrat: Bug Bite(x2) w/ Geoff
                                --VS Lillipup: Bug Bite(x4) w/ Geoff
                                -Obtained Basic Badge

                                -Bug Bite

                                And now I am going to catch Venipede and beat Roxie.

                                    And so I have caught up with the other games in Black2. Roxie was pretty difficult, considering her Pokemon were defensive and I didn't have any moves that could substantial damage, besides a 5-turn Rollout, which didn't quite happen. I survived with 5 HP and one Pokemon left. Anyway, here's the team and events

                                    -Caught Venipede
                                    -Named her Kaiser; I really don't remember why, but I think someone had the name Kaiser
                                    -Did no grinding at all
                                    -Explored the Complex
                                    -VS Leader Roxie
                                    --VS Koffing: Rollout(x4) w/ Kaiser
                                    --VS Whirlipede: Return(x4) + Rollout(x3) & Pursuit w/ Geoff + Kaiser
                                    -Obtained Toxic Badge

                                    Serious Nature @Silk Scarf
                                    -Razor Leaf
                                    -Bug Bite

                                    Kaiser [VENIPEDE] Lv18 (F)
                                    Docile Nature @None
                                    Poison Point
                                    -Rock Smash
