        Sun - Dragon Monotype
        Island Trials: 6/7
        Grand Trials: 2/4

        On my way to Po Town, last saved right in front of Ula'ula Meadow.

        I had a fainted Butterfree at the front of my team so I could increase the chances of Horsea having a Dragon Scale, and it was quick as the second one had it. I also farmed a Dragon Fang from Bagon for obvious reasons.
        I stopped using Drampa and Deino once I got Axew, as they were somewhat lacking compared to Kingdra, and later caught Turtonator and Gabite. I was also pleasantly surprised that Turtonator can learn Charge Beam. :D
        My last two members are going to be the obvious ones, Alolan Exeggutor and Kommo-o, but it sucks that I have to wait until the last Island for these.

        So finally, here's my team up to this point:
        Spoiler:

        Kingdra Lv.37 @ Mystic Water
        Ability: Sniper
        - Dragon Breath
        - Hidden Power (Ice)
        - Scald
        - Focus Energy


        Axew Lv.36 @ Expert Belt
        Ability: Mold Breaker
        - X-Scissor
        - Dragon Claw
        - Aerial Ace
        - Dragon Dance


        Turtonator Lv.35 @ Charcoal
        Ability: Shell Armor
        - Flamethrower
        - Body Slam
        - Charge Beam
        - Iron Defense


        Gabite Lv.34 @ Dragon Fang
        Ability: Sand Veil
        - Slash
        - Bulldoze
        - Dragon Claw
        - Sandstorm

              Ultimate Flying Monotype Challenge
              Game:
              Black 2
              Badges: 8
              Unova Completed!

              Status:
              Leaf Green, Soul Silver, Omega Ruby, Platinum, Black 2 (8/8), Y, S/M (0/8)

              Here goes my first actual update in the new thread. I can see that I haven't been added to the ultimate challenger's list yet, so I figured I should probably do some updating to get that sorted out. As of this update, I'm only missing Alola on my Fire-, Grass- and Flying challenges, and a few more on my Bug challenge.

              Anyway, I just recently beat the E4 and Iris in Black 2. Sigilyph and Swanna took down Shauntal in a team effort, Crobat blasted through Marshal's entire team, Emolga took out most of Caitlin's team, but had to bring in help from Unfezant, and Crobat almost took out all of Grimsley's team, but Mandibuzz had to finish him off. As for Iris, Emolga was off to a great start, taking out Hydreigon, but was then beaten by Lapras. Unfezant then managed to take down Lapras and Druddigon, but was beaten by Archeops. Swanna was then sent in to clean up. And that's it, here's my final team:


              Unfezant, lv. 62 w/ Silk Scarf
              Female // Adamant // Big Pecks
              - Return
              - U-turn
              - Fly
              - Roost
              Unfezant was kinda cool to use, but it has an absolutely terrible movepool. Sure, most generic birds have terrible movepools, but Unfezant doesn't even learn a decent Flying-type attack. Sure, on a mono-Flying team, it wasn't exactly needed, but still... Come on. Still, Unfezant powered through more enemies than expected with a hard-hitting Return.

              Crobat, lv. 65
              Female // Adamant // Inner Focus
              - Acrobatics
              - Cross Poison
              - Zen Headbutt
              - X-Scissor
              I don't really have much to say about Crobat. I've used it on several of my Flying-type challenges for a reason - I absolutely adore Crobat.

              Swanna, lv. 64 w/ Wide Lens
              Male // Timid // Big Pecks
              - Surf
              - Hurricane
              - Rain Dance
              - Ice Beam
              I used Swanna on my Kalos Flying-team, as well, and I've gotta say - eh. Swanna is alright, and Ice Beam provided great coverage, but other than that, Swanna is kinda - well - boring. Design-wise, if nothing else.

              Sigilyph, lv. 62 w/ TwistedSpoon
              Male // Bold // Magic Guard
              - Psychic
              - Air Slash
              - Energy Ball
              - Shadow Ball
              Sigilyph is awesome. I love its freaky design. It was fun to use, if maybe a little difficult to utilize properly.

              Mandibuzz, lv. 63 w/ Leftovers
              Female // Careful // Weak Armor
              - Brave Bird
              - U-turn
              - Bone Rush
              - Roost
              If not for the fact that the game gives you a level 25(I think?) Mandibuzz with its HA, I never would've used it. It has a weird stat distribution, a kinda lackluster movepool, and I'm not too keen on its design. I ended up kinda liking it, though. Mandibuzz, you're alright.

              Emolga, lv. 62 w/ Magnet
              Male // Timid // Static
              - Thunderbolt
              - Volt Switch
              - Thunder Wave
              - Signal Beam
              As far as Pikachu clones go, I really like Emolga, Stat- and movepool-wise, it's a little underwhelming, sure, but it's adorable and just powerful enough to be a pretty decent team member.

                  This is really interesting. I love Monotype tournaments and stuff, so a Locke would be really cool.

                    Done it! The Elite four was easy until I met Drake's Salamance and I had to start over. Then with a bit of strategy, he was defeated too. Steven's Metagross was another matter, completely wrecked me. In my second try, I just taught Candy Kitty bulk up, setup on his Cradily and it was over, a crunch here, a brick break there. Lots of fun, gonna do a Wonderlocke on Pokemon moon, then I'm going to come back for more monotype!

                      Sun - Dragon Monotype

                      Challenge Completed

                      I beat Guzma with really no issue, thanks to Turtonator's Flamethrower.
                      Once I did all the Aether Paradise stuff, and after barely beating Lusamine and getting to Poni Island, I went back to Hano Beach and farmed up some Stardust and Star Pieces from the Staryu there.

                      **FYI, great place to get money at this point in the game and even late game if you're desperate, just have a fainted Butterfree and a Pokemon with Thief, then you're set. Compound Eyes makes Staryu have 60% of Stardust and 20% chance of Star Piece, and they also drop some after battle sometimes.

                      After catching an Exeggcute (because catching Exeggutor already evolved doesn't have Dragon Hammer -.-), I noticed my problem was that my Pokemon can't take special hits for muk, so I went back to Route 17 and caught a Goomy (I would've just caught Sliggoo where I was at if it were raining), and after 20 or so chained Fearow, one finally popped up, and guess what?
                      It had it's HA, Gooey, which has been super helpful, and also had perfect IVs in Attack, Special Attack and Special Defense (according to serebii's stat calculator).

                      I trained a LOT and got my team to about 48, and continuing through Vast Poni Canyon, my team was 52-53 when fighting Lusamine in Ultra Space.
                      Goodra was an absolute beast. My amazing slime dragon used two Sludge Waves on Clefable, then took 3 Moonblasts before she swapped it out, and after I healed, Goodra proceeded to wreck the rest of her team, then finished Clefable with a final Sludge Wave.

                      So after all that, I went to the Pokemon League, taught my Pokemon some new moves with the Heart Scale lady, trained a bit, then took out the Elite Four.

                      My team, Goodra was by far my MVP for the remainder of the game:

                        Ultimate Fire Monotype Challenge
                        Game:
                        Moon
                        Island Trials: 1/7
                        Grand Trials: 1/4

                        Finally starting up my Alolan Fire-type challenge! I've spent longer than I care to admit soft resetting for natures, but I've finally completed Melemele Island. Finally got myself an Adamant Litten, after what seemed like forever, caught a Jolly Growlithe, trained for a bit, and then completed Ilima's trial. Then I spent an eternity in Melemele Meadow, trying to get a Timid or a Modest Oricorio, before I finally caught myself a Timid one. I've traded a Red Nectar to my game, along with a level 29 Turtonator from Sun, which is sitting comfortably in the PC, until one of my other Pokémon reaches level 29, and I'm allowed to use it. As for Hala, I figured Oricorio could use the training, so she blasted through his entire team with Air Cutter.

                        Here's my team so far:

                        Torracat, lv. 19 w/ Expert Belt
                        Male // Adamant // Blaze
                        - Fire Fang
                        - Scratch
                        - Work Up
                        - Lick

                        Oricorio, lv. 14 w/ Sharp Beak
                        Female // Timid // Dancer
                        - Pound
                        - Helping Hand
                        - Air Cutter
                        - Work Up

                        Growlithe, lv. 15 w/ Quick Claw
                        Female // Jolly // Intimidate
                        - Bite
                        - Roar
                        - Ember
                        - Leer

                        Nice to see this has been renovated. Let's do another for myself, shall we?

                        Forum User Name: Swagroar (formerly Pendraflare)
                        Game(s): Alpha Sapphire
                        Pokémon Type: Poison
                        Single/Ultimate/Free Mode?: Single for right now, but I did Y back in 2013

                        Also, I will not be using any items in battle once I have more than one Pokémon in my party. But I will be allowing them until after I beat Roxanne at least. I had to, because otherwise it would've been a chore for the first badge.
                        Spoiler:
                        So I started the game, chose the guy and named him Opium. I did all the opening stuff, including getting friend zoned by May, saving Professor Birch from a Poochyena, meeting his kid and what have you. I chose Torchic as my starter. I did fight the first Youngster on Route 102, though, because I wanted to find a high level Wurmple. I eventually got to Petalburg Woods (without fighting any of the other trainers), saved, and found a Level 5 Wurmple, which I caught, but accidentally answered No when asked if I wanted to nickname it. I'll worry about that once we reach Slateport. I did switch train to beat a couple trainers, and I did use Torchic against them, but I only did so so I could get Wurmple to evolve ASAP so I could see what it'd evolve into. After a couple trainers, Wurmple reached Level 7 and evolved into Cascoon, so we were good to go. I beat a few more trainers, and went through Petalburg Woods, going after that grunt with the Poochyena. However, initially I couldn't beat Rich Boy Winston, because his Zigzagoon used Tail Whip and Growl and left me unable to do much at all. So I reset the game at that point, but I made it to the other side and then came to a Lass with a Shroomish that had Leech Seed and seriously tested my patience. Then we beat the two Twins that use Grass-types, and after that battle, Silcoon evolved. Afterwards I took on the last of the trainers I skipped.

                        Then we came to Rustboro, where May had already arrived. I skipped over to Route 116 or whatever it was and beat a couple of the trainers until I got to Level 12 and learned Confusion. Then I went back to the Gym and beat the three trainers there, and finished off the trainers on Route 116. Afterwards, I trained in Petalburg Woods against Cascoon, and reached Level 15 for Poison Powder. That was definitely a plus, because then I wouldn't need to keep flailing with Poison Sting and hoping to randomly poison the foe (there were at least two battles where there was no poison after four usages of the move, come on).

                        But with everything I could do taken care of, I came to Roxanne, ready for battle! This took me two tries. First try her Geodude scored a critical hit with the third usage of Rock Tomb.

                        I only had Dustox, so I had to use that against Geodude. I began with a Harden, as her Rock Tomb did just over 1/4, so it was a 4HKO with that boost. And because of Shield Dust, I don’t have to worry about the Speed drop, so that’s a plus. I then decided to go for another Harden, and her next Rock Tomb left me with a little over half (without any critical hits I would have lived three more if she kept doing the same amount). Then I went for Confusion, which scored a critical hit for over half AND she missed with Rock Tomb. Woo! Another Confusion finished her.
                        Nosepass was next, however. This I decided to go for Poison Powder against, and thankfully it hit. Then her Rock Tomb did 8 HP (this was with +2 Defense), and it got me to eat my Oran Berry, leaving me at 3/5. I used Confusion next, and that did around 1/4 or so before Rock Tomb got me below half. Poison got her near half. I used Confusion again, and her Rock Tomb got me to 1/4 before poison got her to healing range. As she healed, another Confusion felt like it did less. Unsure of how much I’d potentially do, I used a Potion, and she used Rock Tomb again and I was one point above half before she took poison damage. After another Confusion got her low, she used Rock Tomb once more, but I was able to not be finished off, and after another round of poison damage I finished her off with another Confusion.

                        Very nice, that turned out not as bad as I was prepared for. Then again, that Geodude got unlucky. But I don't know if I absolutely needed that Potion, but I'm not complaining. Anyway, I got the Stone Badge and TM39 for Rock Tomb, then left the Gym to see an Aqua Grunt stealing some package. We'll have to go after him! But we'll take to that later.

                        Team:
                        Spoiler:
                        (M), Level 15
                        Stats: 46, 20, 31, 20, 35, 27 (the blue nature is the reduced stat and the red one is the increased stat, just like in the game)
                        Moves: Confusion, Gust, Harden, Poison Powder

                          Game:
                          Moon
                          Island Trials: 4/7
                          Grand Trials: 2/4

                          Just arrived at Ula'ula Island! Lana's trial was a pain, that Wishiwashi Totem destroyed my team, like, four or five times, so I had to grind for a while and plan some sort of strategy. Growlithe would sacrifice itself, getting in as many Confides as possible, then Torracat would paralyze it with Lick, and finally Oricorio would spam Air Cutter and hope for the best. Before Kiawe's trial, I caught myself a Cubone and a Salandit. Cubone one-shotted the Salazzle Totem, and (almost) the entire team took down the Lurantis Totem in a surprisingly difficult battle. By the time I went up against Olivia, Torracat and Oricorio had reached level 29, so I was allowed to use the Turtonator from Sun that was sitting in my PC. Good thing, too, it saved me in the battle against her. Cubone had evolved by then and lost what little advantage it otherwise had against her. Side-note, Alolan Marowak is sick af.

                          Here's my current team:

                                Ultimate Fire Monotype Challenge
                                Game:
                                Moon
                                Island Trials: 7/7
                                Grand Trials: 4/4
                                Ultimate Challenge completed!

                                That's it! Once again, my Fire-type UMC is complete! I've been through a few trials since my last update, so I'm just gonna do an update on the E4.
                                Oricorio handled itself well at first against Hala, but was taken out by Poliwrath, so Arcanine had to step in with Wild Charge. In the end, I think it was Marowak who took out most of his Pokémon.
                                Olivia was tough. Had to use a Max Revive, even. I think Turtonator was able to win in the end. Turtonator was MVP for sure during this E4 challenge.
                                Acerola(?) was kinda tough, as well. Incineroar, Marowak and Arcanine all had to chip in.
                                I forgot the Flying-type trainer's name, but she was by far the easiest of the bunch. Turtonator was able to set up two Shell Smashes and then just proceeded to wreck her team.

                                Then there was Kukui. I had a lot of trouble with Kukui. His damn Lycanroc singlehandedly took out three of my Pokémon, before it for some reason decided to set up Stealth Rock, so I could set up with Turtonator and take it out with Flash Cannon. The rest of the battle was a desperate stalling game of me constantly reviving fainted Pokémon. In the end, all I had was Turtonator (again!) against his Ninetales. After surviving a Blizzard that I thought for sure would make me start over, Turtonator finally finished the battle with a Flash Cannon. Crazy difficult battle.

                                FINAL TEAM:

                                Incineroar, lv. 57 w/ Expert Belt
                                Male // Adamant // Blaze
                                - Flare Blitz
                                - Darkest Lariat
                                - Cross Chop
                                - Leech Life
                                When they were announced, Incineroar was certainly not my favorite starter, but boy, has it grown on me. There's a lot of personality and charm to it for a Dark-type Pokémon that is trying very hard not to be a Fighting-type. All in all, a really cool starter, I think.

                                Arcanine, lv. 56 w/ Quick Claw
                                Female // Jolly // Intimidate
                                - Flare Blitz
                                - Outrage
                                - Crunch
                                - Wild Charge
                                Throughout this challenge, I wanted to use only new Alolan Pokémon or Alola Forms. That left me with one slot after a bit of team planning, and how could I not fill that slot with Arcanine? An iconic Fire-type ever since its introduction. I don't need to do any sort of analysis of Arcanine, Arcanine is amazing. That's all there is to it

                                Oricorio, lv. 56 w/ Sharp Beak
                                Female // Timid // Dancer
                                - Revelation Dance
                                - Air Slash
                                - Mirror Move
                                - Roost
                                Oricorio felt very much like a generic Normal/Flying bird that also kind of maybe was a bit of a Fire-type. I adore the design, and its dancing animations were really cool, but other than that, it was a little difficult to get excited about Oricorio.

                                Marowak, lv. 58 w/ Thick Club
                                Female // Adamant // Lightning Rod
                                - Flare Blitz
                                - Bonemerang
                                - Rock Slide
                                - Shadow Bone
                                The baddest of the bad, Alolan Marowak is clearly the superior Marowak, because how can you even begin to compare this majestic craziness to the absolute mediocrity that is regular Marowak? 10/10, for design, if nothing else. And, of course, it's crazy strong with Thick Club.

                                Salazzle, lv. 58 w/ Poison Barb
                                Female // Modest // Corrosion
                                - Flamethrower
                                - Dragon Pulse
                                - Nasty Plot
                                - Sludge Wave
                                Other than the fact that soft-resetting for this thing took an eternity and a half, Salazzle was super fun to use. Amongst a region of snail-tier speed stats, Salazzle was sure to go first 90% of the time. Couldn't take a hit, though, which made it difficult to set up.

                                Turtonator, lv. 59 w/ Charcoal
                                Female // Timid // Shell Armor
                                - Flamethrower
                                - Flash Cannon
                                - Dragon Pulse
                                - Shell Smash
                                Oh boy. I did not have my hopes up for Turtonator, and I was not initially planning on using one with a Timid nature. Incredibly, though, a Timid Turtonator with Shell Smash proved to be a REALLY solid strategy. At +2 speed, Turtonator would outspeed almost anything I threw it at. And at +2 Sp. Attack, it would usually OHKO it, as well. MVP for sure against the E4, and just a much more fun Pokémon than I thought it would be.

                                All in all, fun challenge, I'll have to do this again when Gen 8 comes out!

                                Alpha Sapphire Poison Monotype - Update #2

                                Spoiler:
                                After beating Roxanne, we had to go through Route 116 to save Peeko from a Team Aqua grunt, as well as some goods. I found the grunt there, and Dustox managed to beat him despite him using Sand-Attack. I got the Devon Goods back, and returned them to the Devon Corporation, and after some talk I got the BuzzNav. Then, May was waiting for me outside for some reason, but after some insignificant stuff I made my way to Briney's house on Route 104. He got us to Dewford Town. I got the Old Rod from a Fisherman there, and managed to catch a Tentacool that I would name Whiplash. Afterwards I caught a Zubat in the Granite Cave that I once again forgot to nickname right away. I beat the Fishermen on the route, and went back to near Rustboro City to train my team some. I was trying to avoid using Dustox as much as possible, since he was a hair away from Brawly's highest level thanks to him being my only team member for a while.

                                Eventually, we got their levels up, and they had proper attacking moves, so we were set for the Gym. The trainers weren't much worth discussion, and Brawly I didn't take any damage from either. Zubat 2HKO'd both his team members with Wing Attack.

                                Afterwards we were able to go to Route 109, but before doing anything else, there were two Pokémon I wanted to get my hands on, so I went through Slateport City. But before going to Route 110, the first thing I did was go to the Name Rater and nickname the two Pokémon I forgot to do so earlier - naming Dustox Larvae and Zubat Fastball. I then went right up to Route 110. The first Pokémon I caught was a Gulpin named Creme Brule. The second was an Oddish named Tiny. The former I'm sure will be a long-term team member, but not the latter, as I have a better Grass-type coming in due time, although this one will be good for Sweet Scent later, at least.

                                But we went back to beat the trainers. Some of them did a bit of damage, but not much overall. I checked out Slateport City, met with someone at the dock, and entered the museum where I beat some grunts, including the 27th strongest member of Team Aqua. That is oddly specific. Archie then went on about how the world needs more water. Dude, cool it before I give you a 7.8/10. Then there was the brief bit with Lisia at the Contest Hall, but I progressed through Route 109. After an annoying Poké Fan with Plusle and Minun, I wasted no time in getting to May. Zubat couldn't do more than half to her Shroomish, but that was handled with ease. Then her Marshtomp was a thing, but Whiplash managed to poison it with Poison Sting then it was basically just stalling her out. Slugma was taken care of with Whiplash as well.

                                After she gave me the Dowsing Machine, I went straight to Mauville City, and to Route 117, where I caught a Roselia named Sour Patch and immediately added it to the team. Then I went back to Route 109 and battled the trainers there, as well as on Route 103. Again, there were a few annoying things (like the double battle with Plusle and Minun), but we got through them and got some good EXP. I also bought Venoshock at Mauville City before I went there.

                                Then I beat Wally in front of the Gym, and decided to enter. The first trainer had a Magnemite that was slightly cumbersome to deal with, but not awful. We did have to deal with a Meditite that knew Thunder Punch, though, and that kind of ripped a hole through my team. But we beat it. Afterwards, it was Gym Leader time!

                                I began with Sour Patch against Magnemite. I used Magical Leaf, and despite resistance, it did roughly 1/3 even with the Miracle Seed, and he used Thunder Wave and paralyzed me. I switched out for Tiny, which is good since Sour Patch has Natural Cure, as he used Tackle for 1/7 my health. Then came a Thunder Wave, however, but I hit with Sleep Powder. I went back to Sour Patch as he snoozed, and used Magical Leaf, but it got him into the red, and he woke up first turn. REALLY?!?! He paralyzed me with Thunder Wave. I switched out for Tiny again before he healed. He used Tackle again, and I hit once more with Sleep Powder. I went back to Sour Patch as he snoozed, and used Magical Leaf for less than half, and HE WOKE UP ON THE FIRST TURN AGAIN AND USED FRICKEN THUNDER WAVE AGAIN!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!! STOP WAKING UP SO I CAN FINISH YOU OFF!!!!!!!!!! I had to switch to Tiny AGAIN, take another Tackle (but still have over half my health left), and then he used Volt Switch for a bit under half my remaining health, but I had an Oran Berry. And then he came to Magneton.
                                But that was immediately met with a Sleep Powder. I switched to Larvae, and he was faster but continued to snooze, while I hit with a Struggle Bug for a very weak hit but lowering his Sp Atk. Same deal next turn. Then he woke up and used Supersonic, which sadly hit, and I hit myself. Knowing that staying in was pointless, I brought in Whiplash, as he used Magnet Bomb for 1/3 my health. Ouch! He hit with Supersonic again, but I hit through confusion, and Water Pulse got him to half and confused him, too. But he hit through it and used Volt Switch, and even with -2 I barely lived, and Voltorb came in.
                                And I hit myself in confusion and was KO’d. I brought in Sour Patch and took a very weak Volt Switch, as he went to Magneton again. Magical Leaf did over half his remaining health, leaving him in KO range of another, but he used Supersonic again. Afraid to stay in, I brought in Creme Brule, and he used Magnet Bomb for less than 1/5 my health. He missed with Supersonic - mercifully so - as I used Yawn. I stayed in on the off-chance that he would hit with Supersonic - which he did - after a pointless Quick Claw before getting Yawn, though. Then he fell asleep. I brought in Sour Patch again as he snoozed… And he didn’t wake up next turn! That allowed me to finish him with Magical Leaf. Sour Patch, Tiny and Creme Brule all gained levels, too.
                                Magnemite was next up again, and Magical Leaf got it super close to finishing it off, but he used Thunder Wave. I brought in Fastball as he used Tackle for a small hit. Bite finished him off.
                                Last up was Voltorb again, who hadn’t done much. I brought in Creme Brule, took a Volt Switch for 1/3 my remaining health, then another, and I used Yawn. Then I switched out for Larvae, took a Volt Switch for 1/5 my health, then he fell asleep. As he snoozed, I used Struggle Bug, which didn’t do that much, but it lowered his Sp Atk. Two hits had him below half. He woke up after two turns but didn’t do much at all, and two more turns finished him, even after he used Charge on the last turn. Not sure why you didn’t do that in the first place…

                                And with that, I got the Dynamo Badge and a TM I won't be able to use. Heading outside, I saw that Team Aqua were getting ready for their departure...

                                  Alpha Sapphire Poison Monotype - Update #3

                                  Spoiler:
                                  After beating Wattson, I headed to Verdanturf and beat the trainers on the way, and used Rock Smash to open the path in Rusturf Tunnel. Also, Tiny evolved into a Gloom, and Fastball became a Golbat. Then it was time to make way through Routes 111 and 112, but along the way there were two Pokémon I caught - a Grimer named Blurbs and a Koffing named Dope. The former I wouldn't be using on my team, but the latter I would. Also, Fastball evolved once again into a Crobat. However, then was the time to leave Tiny behind, as I already had a Grass-type to back me up. We continued to battle trainers, allowing Dope to gain some EXP along the way to catch up. Then there was Route 113, where there were more trainers to battle to help Dope level up. I honestly don't remember many of the trainers here (although that wasn't helped by my being away from my computer for most of it). May watched Professor Cozmo be taken to Meteor Falls, and I had to follow her down Route 114. Once we were there, I battled Team Aqua alongside her and that wasn't too bad. After all was said and done there, it was time to head up Mt. Chimney. After two rather simple fights, Archie knew I was onto him, and it was time!

                                  I began with Whiplash against Mightyena. I got in an Acid Spray for not much besides halving his Special Defense…because he used Roar and forced me out to Sour Patch. Actually that’s not too bad, because his Special Defense was just halved, allowing me to finish him from 90% or so with Magical Leaf.
                                  Sharpedo was next, and I wondered why he didn’t bring in Golbat instead. This WOULD be perfect… Except for the fact that he’s faster and will probably OHKO me. I brought in Whiplash, who took an Ice Fang for 1/3 health and was frozen solid. Assurance then finished me off. I brought in Larvae, and he used Screech to half my Defense, while I got in a Struggle Bug for around 2/3 and a pointless Special Attack drop. Then he used Assurance, which I lived with 9 HP, allowing me to finish him with another Struggle Bug. Both Larvae and Sour Patch grew to Level 25. The former tried to learn Silver Wind, but I passed on it. The latter, however, learned Giga Drain, which I dropped Mega Drain for.
                                  Golbat was last and finished me with Wing Attack. I brought in Creme Brule, and she was met with a Confuse Ray, and I hit myself. After another Wing Attack, I was right near half but managed to hit with Yawn that time, then I brought in Fastball, and after a weak Wing Attack he fell asleep. Mine was a 3HKO, and thankfully he didn’t wake up, allowing me to get the job done. Creme Brule grew to Level 25, and learned Toxic, which I dropped Poison Gas for. Heck yeah!

                                  He surrendered the Meteorite, and Team Aqua thanked me for dealing with him. Then I went down the Jagged Pass and arrived in Lavaridge Town. There were a few things for me to get, but the main thing was the Gym. I beat the trainers there, some dealt a bit of damage but nothing worth noting. It wasn't long before we got to the Gym Leader.

                                  As for Flannery, I was away from my computer when I did this battle as well, so I'll make this quick: Slugma was 2HKO’d with Acid Spray followed by Sludge from Creme Brule (she only used Sunny Day), Sour Patch switched into a light Earth Power from Numel, put her to sleep with Grass Whistle and OHKO’d her with Giga Drain, then Torkoal avoided a Grass Whistle, OHKO’d with Overheat, and then Whiplash did just over half with Bubble Beam and she used Sunny Day. I don’t remember everything that happened after, but I do remember Dope coming in and getting rid of her Curse with Clear Smog before being OHKO’d with Overheat, and I also remember having Larvae poison her with Poison Powder (after a miss, she missed with Overheat also) and lower her Special Attack with Struggle Bug. Eventually she succumbed to poison. Oh, and after the battle Creme Brule became a Swalot.

                                  So I got the Heat Badge, and May offered to take me back to Petalburg. First I dealt with the trainers in the Jagged Pass that I missed, and then the desert on Route 111. Once again, there wasn't that much to them, although there was a Sandslash that could've killed Creme Brule after locking me in with Sand Tomb, but no, it used Poison Sting for whatever reason. Fail. And thanks to snoozing and Acid Spray she was able to finish it.

                                  Before going back to Lavaridge Town, I did get one important item in the Fiery Path: TM06 for Toxic. One of the best moves in the game, and it's even better with Poison-types because in the 3DS games it never misses if used by a Poison-type, which is pretty awesome, especially when paired with Venoshock.

                                  Then we returned to Petalburg City with May, and I took on the Gym trainers. Some of them dealt some damage, but both Zangoose were weird and used Revenge. I say... WUT. After we beat all the trainers, I decided it was time for Mr. Dad Norman!

                                  I began with Creme Brule against the first Slaking, and he began with Yawn, as predicted, as I used Acid Spray to do a bit of damage and half his Special Defense. As he loafed around, I used Toxic to badly poison him. He took damage, then I fell asleep…but that activated my trap card, the Chesto Berry, waking me up. And he used Yawn again - because of course he did - but I finished him with Venoshock right there, between Toxic and the Acid Spray. And Creme Brule grew to Level 28.
                                  Vigoroth came after. I switched to Dope, and he used Encore, but that did nothing. He then used Retaliate for slightly under half as I went with Toxic. After he took damage, I switched out for Whiplash as he used Encore - good thing I switched - and after some poison damage followed by a Retaliate that did over 2/3, I used Venoshock, which finished him with from 13/16 a critical hit that most likely mattered. Dope grew to Level 28.
                                  The second Slaking was next in line. I decided to sack off Dope to a Chip Away, seeing as he had just reached Level 28 while Whiplash was a nose away from then. Larvae was next, and as he loafed around I got in a Toxic. He took damage and used Retaliate for over 2/3, as my Venoshock didn’t do that much. He loafed around as I used Moonlight, but I wasn’t sure if that would allow me to survive another hit from him. Toxic got him below half, and he used… Swagger? But I hit through it and after another Venoshock, Toxic finished him off for the win. Whiplash grew to Level 28 and tried to learn Barrier, but I passed.
