    Crystal update:
    I took my time clearing out the rocket hideout and it was awful.
    I finished with the hideout and headed to the gym to face Pryce.
    Managed to finally evolve my R. Rocket into a crobat.
    Wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be so I have my seventh badge now.
    After getting a call from the professor I headed to the radio tower to clean up.
    I basically destroyed team rocket with one hand behind my back.
    My rival Rumba showed and actually almost beat me but the power of items was on my side.
    I finished off the last remains of team rocket and was told by Eusine to go to tin tower.
    I defeated the 3 sages and caught it (cause that's what it wanted me to do).
    Decided Bret M. isn't pulling his weight and perma-benched him.
    Now heading for Icy cave.

    Current team:
    Blues S. (Gengar) lvl 36
    Matt S. (Arbok) lvl 31
    Rikki R. (Nidoking) lvl 31
    R. Rockett (Crobat) lvl 31

      I would assume so otherwise you cannot train them lol.

        Switch training is totally acceptable for Pokémon who can't fight back. However, if the pokemon is the only one of your type submitted for the challenge, you may not challenge any gyms until the Pokémon in question can "fight back".

          Pokémon Type: Grass
          Single/Ultimate/Free Mode

          Currently arrived in Shalour City. My team thus far:

          Vyce | Lv. 17
          Zelda | Lv. 31
          Joana | Lv. 32
          Giullietta | Lv. 32
          Lipa | Lv. 32
          Vitor | Lv. 32

          Loving this challenge, I've been meaning to do a grass monotype for a long time. Eevee is a surprisingly valuable assett to the team, due to its typing. I've never had an unevolved Eevee fulfill such an important role on a team. I've also never been this happy with not being able to get the desired eeveelution until late in the game, haha.

                So we can bring our challenges from the old thread to this one? I think I'll do just that. Here's the link to my original signup.
                It's an ultimate Poison challenge, and I believe I'm seven badges into X.
                Also, is it allowed for me to use hacks like Sacred Gold/Storm Silver/Blaze Black/Volt White or not?

                      Crystal update:
                      Made it to blackthorn after making sure to grab the nevermeltice from icy cave.
                      Challenged Claire and beat her after a second try.
                      Went through dragons den pretty easily.
                      Not sure when I decided to do this but after realizing my nidoking’s attack and special attack were nearly the same I bought the gma for thunder punch and ice punch and taught it to him.
                      Took my time clearing out the route up to victory road for training but it didn’t take long.
                      Finished victory road.
                      Rumba met me at the exit and tried to spout his factually incorrect nonsense about love and friendship are useless to Pokémon which is why my crobat kicked his golbat’s ass.
                      Immediately challenged league to gauge how much training I needed and got swept by will’s first xatu... it wasn’t great.
                      Trained everyone up to 40 and tried again making it all the way to lance (with the unstoppable power of items.
                      Ran out of items before lance and his aerodactyl outsped all my mons and used rock slide to flinch any that could do damage.
                      Sulked for 2 days.
                      Went on a hunt for some type enhancing items.
                      Obtained hard stone and black glasses.
                      Finished any remaining level ups from previous attempt.
                      Bought 30 hyper potions and 20 revives.
                      Swept will.
                      Super swept koga (he’s not even that good of a poison type trainer anyway)
                      Swept Bruno.
                      Swept Karen.
                      Fought a super hard battle with some great poetic justice of flinching aerodactyl to death and beat lance.
                      Became champion... decided it wasn’t enough and got on a boat.
                      Beat up local and stole his jewelry (beat lt. surge).
                      Went on a quest to fix the power plant.
                      Took photos to send to thread.

                      Oh boy it’s been a long run so far (66 hours to reach and beat league) but we’re more than halfway done now. I can hear Hoenn calling my name. I forgot to take a picture at the time so my pictures are team in Kanto I also made a pic showing me in saffron.

                      Current team:
                      Blues S. (Gengar) lvl 44
                      Matt S. (Arbok) lvl 45

                                Spoiler:
                                • Chose Litten as my starter after what seemed like an eternity of cutscenes.
                                • Defeated Hau in Iki Town. It was stupidly easy - his Rowlet even got burned.
                                • Defeated Hau again at the festival in Iki Town. It went well.
                                • Beat all the trainers at the Trainers' School. It was actually pretty difficult - especially against Teacher Emily's Meowth. Flinch hax, man.
                                • Defeated Ilima... On my second try. Holy crap, that Smeargle is brutal. I was only able to beat him after using a few X Special Attacks.
                                • Defeated the Totem Gumshoos and cleared the first trial! I was lucky enough to have been able to burn the Gumshoos on the first turn - if I hadn't, I imagine it would've been way harder.
                                • Litten evolved into Torracat.
                                • Defeated Hau on Route 3. Once again, it went well.
                                • Defeated Hala in Iki Town on my second try. It was pretty hard, though nowhere near as hard as Ilima - at least I didn't need to use a bunch of X items.

                                    Finally did it I beat crystal.

                                    Fixed power plant.
                                    Beat Erika.
                                    Beat Misty.
                                    Beat Janine.
                                    Beat Brock.
                                    Beat Blaine.
                                    Beat Sabrina.
                                    Beat Blue.
                                    Challenged Red... got bodied hard.
                                    Took a break to chain breed a shiny eevee.
                                    Got a shiny eevee.
                                    Started Fighting Elite four multiple times to grind.
                                    Fought Red 3 times and lost.
                                    Remembered the cheap tricks I used to beat gen 1.
                                    Beat Pikachu with Nidoking as usual.
                                    Gave a quick claw to gengar so I could actually start to fight the rest of the team.
                                    Used a combo of Curse, Confuse Ray and Bite to take out Snorlax.
                                    Used a combination of Glare, Confuse Ray, and shadow ball to beat Blastoise.
                                    Used hypnosis and dream eater to beat venosaur.
                                    used hypnosis, curse and shadow ball to beat charizard with no damage.
                                    Red quietly took an L.
                                    Lots of celebration.

                                    This was a very long and very interesting part of the run and I am super excited to keep going forward. Unfortunately my laptop is refusing to download most of my pictures so the only proof I have is my victory over Red which should be proof enough.

                                    Final Team:
                                    Blues S. (Gengar) lvl 58 Shadow ball, Hypnosis, Dream Eater, Curse
                                    Rikki R. (Nidoking) lvl 61 Thunderpunch, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Ice Punch
                                    R. Rockett (Crobat) lvl 55 Bite, Steel Wing, Fly, Confuse Ray
                                    Matt S. (Arbok) lvl 56 Bite, Sludge Bomb, Giga Drain, Glare

                                    I'm planning to start Platinum very soon as I'm going to be using the hoenn remake and I don't want to go backwards in mechanics so I'll be doing gen 4, then 5, then 6, then oras, then 7.

                                    Poison: Blue 8/8, Crystal 16/16, gen 3, Platinum 0/8, gen 5, gen 6, gen 7

                                      Also the thread has been up for quite a while and yet none of the runs I posted have been added to the list. Nor did I get an answer about Rule 3 as I asked before I would really appreciate an answer in regards to future potential monotype runs.
