    Guess who stayed late and played Pokémon for hours?

    Story:
    Well, I think I'll have to rename this section for next games, because there won't me much of the story as my feelings from the run.
    Anyway... I played a lot this week and completed the game just now. Moni became MVP of this run not only thanks to Korrina and Ramos fights, but she pretty much carry whole E4 and Champion battle.
    I would also like to say that this was probably hardest run I had in a while. Lack of Fire, Water, Ground and Rock-Types had an impact on whole experience. I feel like I never had advantage againts my opponents. And it was fun. I had to really think about my strategy (and when it failed, I just spammed Moni's Acrobatics - worked everytime). And last thing... I had so much fun with this run. I found myself planning my team when I was working, thinking if I should catch Pachirisu or Emolga or if the decision to don't evolve Floette and Pancham was right one.

    And that's it. This was one of those runs that I'll probably remember for a while.

    Also... I tried to take a photo of the Hall of Fame:

    Volga, post something so I won't post here all by myself...

    Anyway, time for another Challenge. This time, it's...

    ELITE MASH UP in Pokémon Emerald




    CHAPTER 1 - I wonder how I'll screw this one


    Okay, I did it! I STARTED RUN IN EMERALD! But I said I feel like returning to Hoenn again after few months, so I think it's actually good thing. Last time I played any of the Hoenn game was during Communitylock - which I got bored pretty quickly, because it was normal Nuzlocke. I remember not caring much and only catching about 10 Pokémon in total. And I think none of my Pokémon died, so I must pretty good and Nuzlocking now... After all these years...
    But this challenge don't have anything to do with it! Yay! Anyway, I tried to do something new with this one and push myself to the limits, but I set
    Spoiler:
    on the same turn, so I couldn't use it. But it didn't stop me. I shouted "Screw the rules! I'm on the bad fandom!" and did it anyway. So now I polished my posts used traded Seedot with pre-set name DOTS. And now, every time I use it I'll shout DOTS for no reason. I'll also shout it in pain and despair because it's overleved and won't listed to me. How could I beat Roxxane? I mean it was close battle, OHKO'ing her Geodudes and then almost dying to Nosepass. But DOTS listened to me at the right moment.

    And with that ends my first chapter in Emerald. The be continued...

    Ohh and I also got to Granite Cave and caught Sableye!

      ELITE MASH UP in Pokémon Emerald




      CHAPTER 2 - 8 easy steps to profit


      You know, I always want to post updates more frequently but then I just play and complete big chunk of the game and then there is nothing to post only "I COMPLETED ANOTHER CHALLENGE!" But this time I only beat all the gyms.
      Anyway, this was pretty interesting run so far. Frustrating and unfair but I enjoyed it. It was like riding the rollercoaster. Why? Well let me tell you in these 8 easy steps:
      1 - Have only DOTS that is not listening to you be able to do something
      2 - Have Gemli to beat 2nd Gym because he can't be hit
      3 - Spent hours trying to beat that Magneton ONLY TO FIND OUT WATTSON HAS MANETRIC AFTER THAT
      4 - Now you're overleveled because you had to beat Wattson with sheer force, but you don't have anything againts Flannery so prepare for another close battle
      5 - Use same strategy for Norman as in 2 but still struggle to win
      6 - At this point swap most of the members in your party because they are either DOTS or don't listen.
      7 - With every single Pokémon knowing Dark-Type move, being Dark-Type or being Altaria, it should be illegal to fight Tate and Liza
      8 - Needle Arm your way through Juan

      And with that, you have all the 8 Badges. Good job.

      Last thing that I have to do is don't get lost in Victory Road, train a little bit and then beat E4 with their own Pokémon.

            Yay, double post!

            ELITE MASH UP in Pokémon Emerald




            CHAPTER 3 - 2 Champions 1 Win

            Hey, you know what happened? I completed the game. And it was harder that I expected.
            VS Sydney - I had my secret weapon Jamie... And it got KO'd after 2 turns. So I had to win somehow without it.
            VS Phoebe - I had my secret weapon Jamie... And it got KO'd after 2 turns. So I had to win somehow without it.
            VS Glacia - I had my secret weapon Jamie... And it got KO'd after 2 turns. So I had to win somehow without it.
            VS Drake - Dragons showdown! Explosions everywhere! And then... ICE!

            VS Wallace - LEVEL 57? Ohh, shoot! My team is around level 53... Well, I lost. After years of not losing againts E4, this challenge broke my streak...

            And with that... I had to train again and challenge E4 once again!
            VS Sydney - I had my secret wea... SKIP
            VS Wallace - Whose overleveled now?

            And with that... I completed the challenge.


            But wait, there's more. As you might noticed, I didn't beat the Champion Steven yet, I only beat that C list character Wallace. After hours and hours of training and getting lost in that dragon cave where Steven is, I finally found him. Just like Red and Gold, we have our final showdown in the cave. And I was kinda overleved, because I thought that Steven has Pokémon around level 81, just like Red in the GSC, so I trained my team to level 80. But it was still hard battle, Steven even KO'd some of my Pokémon.

            - Fly
            - Sing


            Megon, Relaxed Male Flygon
            lvl 80, Levitate
            - Flamethrower
            - Hyper Beam
            - Dragon Breath
            - Earthquake

            Okay, another challenge done... I think I'll go with either Culinary Challenge or Trio-Species in Unova.

            Also, after some more research, I decided to change challenge 33 - Z-moves, a little bit. I realize there are really small number of Pokémon with specific Z-move, so the new text of the challenge will be:
            Quote:
            All your Pokémon must have Z-Crystal attached to them. You also have to include at least one Pokémon with specific Z-move on your team.
            You must use Z-move in every major battle (Totem Pokémon, kahunas, E4, Guzma, ...)
            I hope no one is doing it at the moment and that you like this change.

              Confirming the card from the post above. It actually works out well that Duo-Species got replaced in Sinnoh - I've already done a Sinnoh Duo-Species.

              EDIT: Sigh. I knew there would be a problem. And of course, as almost all Pokemon routing problems tend to be, it's Johto.

              My username (for the name challenge in Johto) is weird. I couldn't decide between my traditional username (ddrox) or my current one (Spirit). Issue is, neither works. For ddrox, it ends up as almost a full game Xatu solo run. Dragonite and Donphan are both ~Gym 8, Rhyperior is Victory Road, and Omastar is post-game exclusive. For Spirit... well, let's say I'd be forced to use Iggilybuff. So my current plan for that challenge is to run with a Drayano hack, Sacred Gold. It takes place in Johto and plays out exactly like HG, except that the gyms are harder, the level curve is less Johto-y (bad), and the wild encounters are vastly increased. This gives me two teams to pick from: Donphan, Drapion, Roserade, Omastar, Xatu (Omastar is now obtainable in Goldenrod, Donny before Falkner), OR Staraptor, Pachirisu, Illumise, Roserade, Infernape, Typhlosion (Infernape is a gift in Goldenrod) If you don't want me to use this and have a Better Idea, just tell me. Not starting this for a while methinks.

              In the meantime, I'm planning on getting my Champion Challenge (Johto) to Goldenrod. Why? Because I need a Dratini to have a competent non-Magikrap team member before the 3rd gym, so I best get Voltorb Flippin. Oh, and I still need to finish my solo run that I'm in the middle of.

              I think it's okay to use 386/493/649/807 hacks.

              And good luck on your gambling.

                Okay update time:

                BINGO Part 1: SoulSilver Champion Challenge
                Update I - Dragons, Water, and /tableflip (but no water dragons yet)
                Badges: 3/14 (2 badges exempted)

                First, let's route. I'm using the Johto champions, Lance and Red, as my inspiration. First I looked at Lance's team. Kindgra is one of my favorite mons that I've never properly used, so that's one. Dragonite will be option 2 because hello? Dragonite. I went back and forth for 3, but settled on Gyarados because it's literally free. From Red, I picked the two of his Pokemon I actually like - Lapras and Espeon - and then Snorlax because idk. Snorlax is Kanto-locked, but I don't really care, I'll 5-man Johto. It works better that way anyway.

                Game start I guess. For obvious reasons, I picked Cyndaquil as my starter. His name is Flare. Because Cynda is busted as muk, nothing in the first two gyms presented a challenge.

                In Goldenrod, I finally got access to the Game Corner, and therefore my first party member. But first, V O L T O R B . F L I P .
                Gods I hate this game arghhhh

                Enter: Zestiria the Dratini. NOW we can start the run! Zesteria gets to Lv20 after Drakon Rageing the entire vicinity of Goldenrod, and we go into the gym. Compliments of 3 X-Defense, Whitney goes down with relative ease because Drakon Rage.

                Head to Ecruteak, meet Bill, follow him to Goldenrod, and get Lumen the Eevee. Of course, the next gym is Morty, so the only logical thing is to evolve immediately, so the happiness grind begins. And then it ends and Lumen hits 15 and evolves into Espeon. She then almost solos Silver III and the entire Ecruteak gym, only needing assistance with Crocanaw and Gengar (even then, the latter was just Paralysis support).

                I go to Olivine like normal and... Wait a second. What the heck am I doing here besides getting a fishing rod? Answer: Nothing. I start by fishing up a very temporary HM slave - Fish the Goldeen. He does his job - Escorting me across the lower levels of Union Cave to find Aria the Lapras. I then do Ye Olde Johto Sequence Break and head to Mahogany. And by Mahogany I mean the Lake of RAWR. And by the Lake of RAWR I mean my new friend Corrin the Gyarados (except more red). Aria then tears the entire Rocket HQ to shreds, and then Lumen+Aria+Corrin take out the 7th Gym. Except I did it 5th. Johto logic.

                Anywho, I went back to Olivine and beat up the Lighthouse, and proceeded to the Whirl Islands. Now armed with Whirlpool, I can actually enter the caves right away. I intend to catch a Horsea in here, but that can wait for another day. In other news, Zesteria evolved into Dragonair!

                Team is exactly what I said above all level 30 too lazy to copy okay bye

                Okay update time:

                BINGO Part I: SoulSilver Champion Challenge
                Update II - Ice-types are busted in Johto late-game
                Badges: 6/14 (2 badges exempted)
                Johto Champion

                Okay, first things first: Atlantea the Horsea joins up, and it's time to T R A I N

                And now we're overlevelled, so Lumen solos Chuck. Johto doesn't know what balance is though, so Jasmine is still higher level. Luckily for me, everything is either quad-weak to Lumen's Dig or weak to Water and I have like 8 of those.

                Team Rocket is a pushover

                Teaching Thunder to Corrin was a really good idea, but Ice Beam is still the best play for Clair.

                Luuuuuuuuuuuuugia

                Atlantea (who's evolved twice by this point) solos VR Rival, so e4 time. Will, Koga, and Bruno mostly fell under Lumen's domain, while Aria did most of the work on Karen. Aria was also solidly the MVP of the fight with Lance, being an Ice-type and all.

                So that's that. I'm on the SS Aqua now. However... A NEW UPDATE APPROACHES

                BINGO Part II: Y Pick-a-Route - Route 10
                Update I - Rollout is p busted
                Badges: 0/7 (1 badge exempted)

                So I picked Route 10 for this. This route has unquestionably the best variety in Kalos, if nothing else than because Eevee is available for coverage of any type. I opt for two Eeveeloutions in my route - Vaporeon will be *mostly* a Surf slave, but this is one of those rare challenges where the HM slave is a perfectly viable team member, and Umbreon just has its weaknesses well covered by the rest of the team. For the rest of the team, I get two Pokemon I've wanted to use for a while - Golurk and Emolga - a Pokemon that served me quite well in my latest Locke - Probopass - and Hawlucha, who's just really broken.

                I pick Chespin, name it ur bad, and proceed through the boring part using almost exclusively Rollout.

                After death warping in Glittering Cave to avoid riding the stupid Rhydon again, I'm finally at Route 10. Now the fun can begin. My first capture is my first encounter - Einheria the Hawlucha. Next, I catch my first Eevee, Barbarossa (to be Vaporeon). This was followed by Braev the Golett, Qada the Nosepass, and Praline the Emolga. The last member of my team is the other Eevee, Victoria (to be Umbreon). Haven't trained them yet. so there.

                    Thanks!! This is gonna be interesting...

                    I decided to just start with the top of the list, so here we go:

                    SUON PLAYS BINGO
                    A TYPE LINK CHALLENGE ON POKEMON RED

                    challenges completed: 0/20

                    UPDATE #1 - 21/04/2018

                    Spoiler:

                    I started by picking Bulbasaur, who I called HANA. The very first battle against rival BLUE we lost, despite the use of a potion, so awesome start...

                    It got better though. We made it through Veridian Forest and battled Brock for the first badge. Two Vine Whips are enough.

                    Went on and HANA evolves into Ivysaur. Strolled further to Mt. Moon and caught a Zubat, who I named BATTO. All together we make it through the cave, beating Team Rocket on the way and obtaining a Dome Fossil.

                    We arrive in Cerulean and fight Misty. Again, easy peasy. BLUE (I forgot to battle him on the route to the League...) challenges me, and this time I'm the winner. 1-1.

                    My current team:


                    HANA @lvl 21
                    - Vine Whip
                    - Tackle
                    - Leech Seed
                    - Growl


                    BATTO @lvl 18
                    - Bite
                    - Leech Life
                    - Supersonic


                    UPDATE #2 - 22/04/2018

                    Spoiler:

                    We met Bill and helped him become a human being, in exchange for an S.S.Ticket. So went south and made it to Vermilion. I got a Bike Voucher and exchanged it for a bike, and got an Old Rod to fish with. Caught myself a Magikarp, who I called SAKANA.

                    So, first grinding to evolve SAKANA (with a bit of help from the daycare man for the first few levels). As soon as he evolved, he rampaged through everything on the big boat, including BLUE.

                    Got HM Cut, thought it to HM SLAVE A (Oddish) and battled Lt. Surge. 3 out of 3 where HANA needed no assistance...

                    Caught a few random mons to get HM Flash (for HM SLAVE B / Voltorb) and went through Rock Tunnel. Since there's not much I can do in Laveridge right now, I head to Cerulean to battle gym #4. This time, it's the recently evolved BATTO that solo's through the entire place.

                    My current team:


                    HANA @lvl 30
                    - Razor Leaf
                    - Body Slam
                    - Leech Seed
                    - Poison Powder


                    BATTO @lvl 32
                    - Bite
                    - Leech Life
                    - Wing Attack
                    - Confuse Ray


                    SAKANA @lvl 31
                    - Bubblebeam
                    - Bite
                    - Dragon Rage
                    - Tackle


                    UPDATE #3 - 24/04/2018

                    Spoiler:

                    So I played a bit more yesterday, here's a short(ish) update.

                    Hana evolved into its final form, Venusaur. I defeated Team Rocket in Cerulean and got the Silph Scope. Retraced to Laveridge and climbed the tower, to get the PokeFlute.

                    Taught HM SLAVE C (Spearow) HM Fly, since both my fly types can't fly. Went down to Fuchsia via the Bike Path. On route 19 I caught a Staryu, which I immediately gave a Water Stone and some awesome TM's. I named him SUTA.

                    I grinded SUTA by destroying Team Rocket in Saffron. Then, I caught a Drowsee and named it SAIMIN. Him, I grinded by fighting the Dojo in Saffron and beating the trainers east of Fuchsia. Then, after SAIMIN evolved, he single-handedly beat Koga and helped SAKANA beating Sabrina.

                    6 badges so far, but I'll probably play a bit more later today. Anyway, here's the team:


                    HANA @lvl 38
                    - Razor Leaf
                    - Body Slam
                    - Leech Seed
                    - Toxic


                    BATTO @lvl 36
                    - Bite
                    - Leech Life
                    - Wing Attack
                    - Mega Drain


                    SAKANA @lvl 38
                    - Surf
                    - Strength
                    - Dragon Rage
                    - Rest


                    SUTA @lvl 35
                    - Surf
                    - Psychic
                    - Ice Beam
                    - Thunderbolt


                    SAIMIN @lvl 35
                    - Dream Eater
                    - Hypnosis
                    - Tri Attack
                    - Confusion


                    UPDATE #4 (FINALE) - 24/04/2018

                    Spoiler:

                    Again today? Yes, as mentioned earlier, I played a bit more. Heck, I finished it...

                    After beating Sabrina we surfed down from Pallet Town to Cinnabar to challenge Blaine. 2 watertypes VS fire? You do the maths.

                    Then, I flew to Viridean for the last gym. For the 3rd time this game I beat Giovanni, and again without any problems.

                    On my way to VR I meet my rival BLUE, and although I win quite easily, his pokemons are all quite a few levels higher then mine. I fear grinding...

                    Anyway, I make it to the League and decide to grind. After spending some time in VR, I get bored and decide to battle the E4 with 2 pocket monsters at a time, for training. Here I realise, even though I'm quite underleveled, that I should be able to beat them. I mean, I soloed with SUTA (Absolute MVP of this run, btw) until Lance, just for training... So, here we go!

                    Lorelei - HANA beats Dewgong, Cloyster and Slowbro with ease. I let SAKANA deal with Jynx and Lapras is food for SUTA.
                    Bruno - SAKANA beats both the Onixes and SAIMIN has no trouble with Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan and Machamp.
                    Agathe - I let SAIMIN solo this one. Agathe could have fought back, but using Dream Eater on awake opponents?
                    Lance - Literally 5 ohkos by SUTA. Disappointing, really.
                    Champion BLUE - SUTA ohkos Piaget. Next comes Alakazam, and I let SAIMIN deal with him (hypnosis/tri attack). Exeggutor comes out, and I let BATTO out. BATTO faints... SUTA finishes it with an Ice Beam. Also Gyarados and Aerodactyl are no match for SUTA. For Charizard I let SAKANA out, and he does not disappoint. We... Are... The... Champions!!

                    The Team:


                    HANA @lvl 52
                    - Razor Leaf
                    - Body Slam
                    - Leech Seed
                    - Toxic


                    BATTO @lvl 47
                    - Bite
                    - Leech Life
                    - Wing Attack
                    - Mega Drain


                    SAKANA @lvl 49
                    - Surf
                    - Strength
                    - Fire Blast
                    - Blizzard


                    SUTA @lvl 55
                    - Surf
                    - Psychic
                    - Ice Beam
                    - Thunderbolt


                    SAIMIN @lvl 50
                    - Dream Eater
                    - Hypnosis
                    - Tri Attack
                    - Psychic

                    So, there you have it. Challenge numero uno completed. Until the next...

Quaint, when used to describe the occasional village through which they passed, meant fever-ridden and tumbledown. Twoflower was a tourist, the first ever seen on the discworld. Tourist, Rincewind had decided, meant 'idiot'.
