      Yeah, that would probably take some time :D Take Beautifly instead. And Eevee can be obtained by Bebe in Hearthome City I think.

          I've decided to do this challenge in Heart Gold, but the team will still be the same.

          Journal Log:
          Spoiler:

          Started the game and chose Cyndaquil (Yellow) for my starter. Professor Elm sent me up to Mr Pokemon to see what all the fuss was about. At Mr Pokemon's house I met Professor Oak who gave me a Pokedex which is pretty sweet. Mr Pokemon gave me a Mystery egg to give back to Proffesor Elm.

          As I was about to start my journey back to New Bark Town Professor Elm called saying that he had been robbed. I happened to battle the thief on the way back to see him, I think his name was 'A'. I let the police officer know the details and gave the egg to Professor Elm, who told me to go on a Pokemon journey. First stop Violet City.

          On the way to Violet city I caught a Pidgey (Orange) in a premier ball I got in a promotional offer from the pokemart. After arriving in Violet city I met a man named Primo who I watch on TV, he gave me an Egg which apparently contains a Wooper! I then battled through the sprout tower and ran into 'A' once again.

          After the Sprout Tower I challenged Falkner and won!

            Note: Being Yellow Version, the selection is rather finite I'll admit but I've beaten Brock without the usual suspects(Nidoran, Mankey or Butterfree). Hit me with your best shot :)

                  Solid and I actually like Nidoqueen more than Nidoking since it’s my favorite Poison type. I’ll have to train Pikachu a bit though to get Bulbasaur since acquiring him is based on Friendship with Pikachu(first time that mechanism was utilized). If you’ll allow that then I’m good to go. Otherwise I’ll swap Bellsprout. Interesting that I have no Fire type but Hypno more than makes up for that(Psychic is so OP lol). I’ll start later today seeing as I’ve come down with a cold(so I can rest by playing on my old GBC).

                    Great, Nidoqueen is one of my favourite Pokémon too.

                    You can use small trick in Yellow to get Bulbasaur without wating your time with training Pikachu. If you use Potion or any healing item on Pikachu (while it has full health so you won't lose the healing item), it will increase its happiness. But if you would rather swap Bulbasaur for Bellsprout, I don't see any problem with that.

                      Yeah I know about the Potion trick. Was just wondering if I didn't have to go through with that and just grind Pikachu the old fashioned way(with all the early route Flying Types, the grind really isn't all that hard or long). I'll also be using two HM slaves: Butterfree(Flash and to ensure I have enough "caught" Pokemon for the HM) and Lapras(or Squirtle for Surf) since the earliest I can get Krabby is fishing with a Super Rod on Route 10 or waiting until Seafoam Islands. I could teach Surf to Nidoqueen but the thought of a Ground type surfing on the Water... yeah that's just not logical.

                      I'll post an update sometime soon as this cold is a whopper.

                        Update in order:

                        At Rock Tunnel with 3 Badges. Brock was a cakewalk and I did Potion trick to get Bulbasaur prior to Misty. Nidoqueen made Lt.Surge a breeze even though I had no Ground Type moves(helps when he uses Thunderbolt on round 1). Did a bit of grinding in Diglett Cave. Only concern so far is how I'm going to beat Sabrina when half of my overall team(and presently 3/4ths) is vulnerable to Psychic moves. Might be interesting to do a Psychic vs. Psychic bout.


                        Level 30
                        Cut
                        Razor Leaf
                        Leech Seed
                        Vine Whip


                        Level 30
                        Scratch
                        Body Slam
                        Poison Sting
                        Double Kick


                        Level 30
                        Scratch
                        Leer

                            Good luck.

                            As for me, may as well get another run done.

                              Alrighty, here's what I got for ya. Let me know if there are any issues.



                              Also will post an update. Am at Sabrina right now after having done Rock Tunnel, Erika, Silph, Lavender and then traveling Cycling Road to Fuchsia to battle Koga. Backtracked to get Old Amber and went back to Route 10 with Super Rod to get a Krabby(which I have to train after Sabrina. Fortunately I have two good training spots).

                                  Managed to complete my run so I figure I’d give the details. Sabrina was actually easier than I thought it would be and I exploited her starting Abra to beat her. Since her starter only has Teleport and Flash for moves, I opted to open with Hypno to put it to sleep before swapping to Bulbasaur. While Abra napped, I used Growth to amplify my Special(which in Gen 1 is combined). I did so 6 times, swapping back to Hypno to put it back to sleep and take any potential Flash attacks. Fortunately no Flash attacks succeeded but I had X Accuracy just in case. Then with Bulbasaur amped with +6 to Special, I unleashed one Razor Leaf after another, scoring huge critical hits that managed to knock out her Abra and even her Kadabra. Her Alakazam was a bit tougher to knock out but with Leech Seed and repetitive Razor Leafs, it eventually fell to my Grass/Poison Pokemon.

                                  I then proceeded to Cinnabar Island to get Aerodactyl revived. Taught it Fly and flew back to Vermillion to train Krabby. Grinded to 30 before moving to Cycling road to grind some more. Managed to get everyone up to 50 prior to facing Blaine where Kingler swept his trio. Giovanni fell pretty fast as well through a combination of Venusaur(evolved him at this point with Solar Beam replacing Leech Seed) and Kingler.

                                  Victory road was a long and arduous journey but managed to squeeze several more levels prior to E4. Lorelei didn’t last long thanks to Venusaur, although her Jynx was the only issue due to Psychic Typing. Hypno then swept Bruno and Agatha(requiring I use an Ether item to replenish his Psychic) before Nidoqueen and Kingler defeated Lance. Opened with Kingler against Blue/Gary where Surf defeated Sandslash and a couple Stomps and a Crabbammer defeated his Alakazam. Nidoqueen swapped in for Exeggcutor and Earthquaked it prior to giving it a Body Slam. Switched to Venusaur for Cloyster wherein it quickly fell. Then Kingler defeated Ninetales and Nidoqueen OHKO Jolteon with an Earthquake(Pin Missile stings though). Hard to say who my MVP was but I’d peg it as a three way tie between Venusaur, Kingler and Hypno(with Nidoqueen an honorable mention).

                                      ...So pretty much a Blastoise solo run featuring hours in the Safari Zone or Game Corner, Abra hunting, and a mon that comes so late, it's pretty much unusable. To be fair, I do have issues with Scyther and Aerodactyl, mainly. Mr. Mime, I can deal with, but with Aerodactyl being pretty much useless and Scyther being a pain to get, I'd prefer to have something...well, a little less time consuming.
