          Okay, first update on my grass-monotype run through HG (got three badges):

          -Named myself "wave," as always. Set style, because I like the extra challenge.
          -Chose Chikorita (obviously?). Got to like Level 9 before battling rival CHEDR, just from natural story progression.
          -Got Bellsprout east of Violet.
          -Reached Violet.
          -Got Hoppip south of Violet.
          -Went through Sprout Tower. I believe Hoppip learned Tackle here.
          -Violet Gym: Falkner wasn't so bad, actually. Pidgey was not much of a problem. PoisonPowder/Synthesis was my main strategy against Pidgeotto. Roost was annoying, but it made it so that Razor Leaf was at normal effectiveness. No one fainted, and we got the Zephyr Badge!
          -Went through Union Cave and made it to Azalea.
          -Got Oddish from Ilex Forest.
          -Did the Slowpoke Well stuff.
          -Was thinking about maybe getting a Paras, so tried to go back to Ilex Forest. But...
          -Rival ambush! Gastly Cursed itself to oblivion. His Quilava destroyed my team. >_< Darn Blaze...
          -Decided to do him later, so beat all the trainers in Azalea Gym.
          -Bugsy was a major problem. That Scyther is ridiculous! Sitrus Berry and Super Potion...
          -But I got some level-ups in there, so maybe rival first? Beat rival. His Gastly trapped my Hoppip with Mean Look and Curse, while Tackle was my only attacking move. That's the thing I remember most from that battle.
          -Did the Farfetch'd thing. Got Cut and a Paras.
          -Back to Bugsy. Lost. Super Potion was used on Kakuna this time, though.
          -Rematch with Bugsy once again. And in a very, very close battle, got the Hive Badge! :D PoisonPowder on Scyther, and stalled it out. The one extra turn of poison gained from having an additional party member was definitely needed!
          -Went through Ilex Forest and reached Goldenrod.
          -Got Sunkern from the National Park. A party of six already!?
          -Did all the Goldenrod stuff and beat all trainers in the vicinity.
          -Whitney! Actually not so bad, especially when compared to the Bugsy battles. ^-^ Sunkern's Leech Seed (which is like my most favorite move ever) was mega-useful on Miltank. With Reflect, that Miltank couldn't touch my Chikorita. Though, that Attract... And two Super Potions... Ah well, it went well enough. We won the Plain Badge, after all. And Chikorita evolved at the end of that battle (I was waiting for Magical Leaf). ^-^

          The team so far:

          Chicory (Bayleef), Male, Lv. 20

              Back after long, unwanted, unforseen Hiatus... Nothing worth noting in signature as of yet... : <

                  OHMIGOSH. I did it. I finally finished that accursed bug monotype. Had to grind against the E4 in order to get decent exp but I still got pissed off at the rate of exp grind and death so I ended up slapping an exp. share onto Armaldo so it could hoard exp. Since it was my MVP and all. The others did well though. Except for maybe Beautifly. Darn Beautifly.

                  Drake gave me the most problems, so I had to hatch a plan to beat him. After a couple of tries, I finally managed to Baton Pass 2 Double Teams, 4 Speed Boosts, and 2 Swords Dance to Armaldo. Okay, I was playing chicken, but it worked. Armaldo was now fast and strong enough to OHKO everything except for Flygon. Meh, Flygon. Armaldo managed to get a boost from AncientPower too. Heh.

                  I did the same thing with Wallace too, except with less boosts. Wailord was getting dangerous. This time, the problem was that Armaldo didn't have any moves left but Metal Cla.... oh. Shoot. I forgot about Slash's existence. Meh, too late now. Powered through everything but Whiscash who managed to kill my Armaldo. I had to do a lot of swapping between attacking, throwing up Light Screen and reviving the dead before I could kill the stupid thing, because Wallace used FOUR full restores on the thing. Bleh.

                  Final team:
                  Beautifly Lv. 58

                    I finished all of my games, I had a lot of fun with fire types, but I will never try to beat Crasher Wake with a fire type EVER AGAIN.

                    I'm too lazy to put much detail, also it would be a huge post, so I'm just going to post my final teams for each game. :P

                        I'm currently traveling and living the life of a backpacker/tourist in various countries, so the time I have to play Pokémon is a bit limited - anyway, here follows the second update of my Flying-type Ultimate Monotype Challenge!

                        After making it through Viridian Forest with ease, (Spearow, you go girl) I trained Charmander up till the point where he learns Metal Claw, thinking that would be enough to take down Brock. Boy, was I wrong. I challenged him twice and lost horribly, thanks to his Rock Tomb. I proceeded to evolve Charmander, but still no success. It wasn't until then I figured I'd have to adjust my strategy - so I tried again, and this time on, I focused on lowering Onix' attack, so his Rock Tombs would be weakened, and Charmeleon was actually able to survive several hits, before eventually taking him out with Metal Claw.
                        Lesson learned: I've never had this much trouble with Brock, and I took the victory for granted. I will (hopefully) never make the same mistake again. Okay, well, I probably will.

                        Team so far:

                        Charmeleon // Male // Modest // Blaze
                        Lv. 17
                        - Ember
                        - Growl
                        - Scratch
                        - Metal Claw

                        Butterfree // Female // Modest // Compoundeyes
                        Lv. 11
                        - Tackle
                        - String Shot
                        - Harden
                        - Confusion

                        Spearow // Female // Adamant // Keen Eye
                        Lv. 10
                        - Peck
                        - Growl
                        - Leer
                        Currently working on: Fakemon FireRed
                        Not finished yet, but complete-ish up until Lavender Town.

                        Feel free to check out my old hack: Pekin's Ruby Hack
                        Finished and playable, but with fewer features.

                          Took a break from the current wifi tournament and progressed a bit on my water monotype challenge (firered)
                          -Got my bike, finally :D
                          -Went through the cycling road and my Horsea evolved into Seadra.
                          -Arrived to Fuschia and going to the Safari zone, to catch some more water types
                          -Caught a Seaking (lol, one of my least favorite pogeymans)
                          -And a Goldeen too. Just because.
                          -Got a Psyduck. YAY!
                          -Got surf and put it on Seadra.

                          -Got the good rod and went back to the safari zone to catch a Poliwag.
                          -Beat Koga and Seadra got a few levels.
                          -Flew to Pallet and surfed south to Cinnabar. Caught a Tentacool on my way there.
                          -That awkward moment when you realize you should have picked LeafGreen instead of FireRed because of... Staryu and Slowpoke.
                          -Got to Cinnabar and got Kabuto.
                          -Trained the kabuto a bit in the seas east of Cinnabar
                          -Went to the mansion to train it a bit more. Damn those pursuit raticates.
                          -Almost at Kabutops, I got the Secret Key and got to the Gym. Should be easy.
                          -Got the Volcano Badge
                          -Went to the three islands and decided to surf. Got to mount ember and there my kabuto evolved into kabutops.

                              Sadly, it seems my computer will not turn on. So, for the time being, I am incapable of really updating the first post. I will if I can figure something out on Wednesday, but for now you will all have to just be patient with me while I work on getting a new computer. Thank you.

                                i just have two questions, i don't have all the games necessarily to visit every region but when i do, could i turn this into an ultimate challenge? also, are emulators allowed? or does it have to be the real game?

                                Yes, you may change any single challenge to an ultimate at any time. It doesn't take much effort on my part to move you on the list. Yes emulators are allowed. Most challenges allow the use of emulators because a lot ofr people don't like to delete their save files. I personally prefer to use real game carts, but that's personal preference.

                                  Small update on my Bug run through Emerald.

                                  Travelled through Granite Cave and gave the letter.
                                  Went to Slateport and beat Team Aqua.
                                  Trained a bit in the Trick Master's house.
                                  Beat on my way to Mauville.
                                  Beat outside the gym.
                                  Took on the gym and got destroyed...
                                  Did some grinding, still got destroyed... That damn Manectric...
                                  Then I realized that if I evolve the I'm using as an HM slave I can get a ! Eureka!
                                  So that's what I did.
                                  I'm still keeping the Nincada I was originally using on my team to evolve into though, just waiting for it to learn Metal Claw.
                                  Challenged the Gym once more... And the video file corrupted. :( Here's a quick play by play instead.
                                  Beauty vs Voltorb. Beauty won with a couple Psybeams.

                                  Shedinja vs Electrike. Shedinja won with a couple Fury Cutters. Got paralyzed by Static twice though. :/

                                  Shedinja vs Magneton. Magneton won cause of Supersonic.
                                  Beauty vs Magneton. Magneton won thanks to Sonicboom. I managed to revive Shedinja though.
                                  Botox vs Magneton. Magneton won with Shock Wave, I thought Botox would have done more damage but I was wrong. But now I have a plan. :)
                                  Ninja vs Magneton. Spammed Sand-attack until Magneton was at -6 then switched to Shedinja.
                                  Shedinja vs Magneton. Spammed Screech until Magneton was at -6, used Fury Cutter but I got confused so I switched back to Ninja.
                                  Ninja vs Magneton. Spammed Scratch and KO'd Magneton, FINALLY!

                                  Shedinja vs Manectric. Spammed Screech until Manectric was at -6 and spammed Fury Cutter to finish it off.

                                  I now hate Magnetons...
                                  Saved the game for now.

                                    Okay, so I took a day longer because A) I needed to grind to beat Wattson and B) Sonic & all-Stars Racing Transformed arrived in the mail and it's fantastic, so I decided to play it instead.

                                        I got my Supercard yesterday, so I started Emerald, I'm heading to Route 102 with Torchic.

                                        Also, after this, I want to do ultimate monotypes of the other basic types, Water and Grass, two of my favorite types.

                                        I'll be doing a lot of monotypes in the future, so you'll see me a lot.
