The Story:

Spoiler:
My personal goal was to defeat Mewtwo, so Pussay the Pidgey would officially be the strongest Pokémon of Kanto.

But first the Pokémon League.
Spoiler:


I entered the League with only Pussay so it would be fair. Back then Pussay had Sand-Attack instead of Swift, which actually saved my life. In my battle with the rival (named GaryMFO) I eventually just spammed Sand-Attack until his Pokémon couldn't hit me anymore. At least he had Venusaur.

I don't remember how I defeated the Elite Four (with great difficulty), but I know Lorelei was especially difficult. When I was up against her Lapras, I decided to stall until she used up all her Blizzards, before realizing there was no PP limit to the Blizzards. I was pretty screwed and only survived the entire ordeal because I mass-bought Full Restores (no reviving since I only had Pussay).

After many tries I finally got through it and became the champion! Only thing left was Mewtwo.

Mewtwo was kind of a hassle. Even though Pussay was 12 levels higher, Mewtwo's stats were obviously way higher so it kept fainting Pussay. Even though Chouji the Snorlax could use Surf too, I took Derp the Lapras with me so I would only rely on Pussay. Eventually Mewtwo was defeated and Pussay was officially the strongest in all of Kanto. The goal had been reached.

I could always rematch the Elite Four, but I honestly don't have enough money to survive it a second time. I have plans to trade Pussay up to my Silver game, so that the Pidgey will be preserved. That's the least it deserves for its excellent service.

Highlight of the challenge: Whenever a Zubat used Leech Life and the textbox would read "Sucked health from Pussay!". The first time that happened my reaction was priceless; this was completely unintentional.

Quick little update everyone,

I recently noticed that the website I was originally using for the Pokemon sprites in the OP has gone down which is why none of the images are available. I just started going through and replacing them all, which will take a little while, and once I'm done I'll get around to updating the OP with the new challenges/progress made by you all and adding in Sun & Moon. Fixed Kanto, taking a break then onto Johto.

Hall of fame:
Spoiler:


Final stats:


Mistletoe|Lvl 71
Tri Attack
Rock Slide
Razor Leaf
Earthquake

I also did Delibird solo on Gold and this one.. This one hated me I swear- It was such a pain to do and it took me a long long time to complete it -Red also hated me apparently because I had to restart over and over until I finally defeated him, especially his monsterous snorlax D: Oh yeah and I also forgot that his movepool is literally garbage >.< I was like: "Oh yeah I can learn Ice punch for Whitney!" nope >_< Whitney was probably the hardest gym leader to beat because of said limited movepool D:

Spoiler:


Final stats:


Shady|Male|Lvl [email protected]
Thief
Blizzard
Fly
Headbutt

I've been meaning to finish this as soon as bank came out but I've been busy lately. I'm pretty close to being finish with it, I'm just working on the last bit. I should have my pictures showing the completion of the run fairly soon. Time to snipe this.

Flaaffy, I have a question.

What's your policy on situations like Leafeon and Glaceon in B2/W2. The Moss Rock and Ice Rock are only available in post-game in those games, so could I evolve them then trade them in as such at level 1, or would you rather have a minimum level rule, like level 20 or so?

(20-25 seems like a good level if you decide to go for a min level rule).

Update #3!
I got a couple badges out of the way today

Progress
Spoiler:

I made it to the Goldenrod City Gym, and Star OHKO'd all of the gym trainers with Return. But Whitney was much harder. MUCH harder. Suffice to say, Attract is a pain in the butt. After about four tries, I eventually had to use some X Speeds and an X Attack during the Clefairy fight, then Star could OHKO them both.
After that, I just had to win an easy Rival battle, and then an easy Gym Battle where I OHKO'd all of Morty's Pokémon.


Team
Spoiler:


Star lvl. 34
Male
Brave Nature
Intimidate
Return
Roost
Close Combat
Aerial Ace

I guess that would be up to you. Trade/hack it in at level 1 if you want or wait till a higher level if you want. All depends on how challenging you want the beginning of the game to be.

Honestly I've seen people start their solos with stage 1 or stage 2 mons like Bayleef or Meganium for example rather just starting off with the basic stage mon and evolving it because they signed up for the challenge with Meganium not Chikorita, which I don't really agree with but compared to that starting the game off with a mon that you normally wouldn't be available to evolve until post-game is fine by me.

Just using Meganium as an example by the way, not accusing anyone doing a Meganium solo for doing this :]

Hey Crystal Flaffy it's time to update the first post since Blaziken is done now. I'll probably finish off Charizard sometime soon since right now I'm just sick of Sun and Moon!

Here's my proof like always! Respect the casual don't care Saturday look.

http://imgur.com/a/7gQNZ

Spoiler:


Blaziken @ Fightinium Z
Ability: Speed Boost
Adamant Nature
- Flare Blitz/Flame Charge (Changed depending on power needed)
- Shadow Claw/Poison Jab/Coverage Move
- High Jump Kick/Brick Break (Why doesn't he learn CC )
- Swords Dance/Bulk Up

Most of the game just came down to being over leveled and not missing high jump miss at critical moments late game. Aside form that there weren't really any issues that Z-Moves or Swords Dance couldn't fix. Probably the easiest game to solo run aside from FR/LG. I'm just happy it's over, I don't wanna touch these games for a while. Charizard can wait.

Hey everyone just thought I would let you all know I just got around to fixing all the sprites in the OP, if I missed anything or I put the wrong sprite on one of your challenges please let me know.

I hope to also update the OP at least a little bit today so look forward to that :]

Edit: Had it a bit backwards

Before I post my update, can I request one small edit on the champions list? There are seperate listings for my old username, Huggermugger, and my current one. Can I have my Clefable solo I did as Huggermugger consolidated into this username? (Link to the Clefable post for proof)

Anyway:

Username: Halcadence
Partner Pokemon: Snorlax
Challenge: Solo
Game: FireRed

Snorlax Solo Challenge (FireRed) - First and FINAL Update

Cross-posting this from the Monocolor thread

Spoiler:


Badges: 8

This E4 run was more annoying than anything. I had to go at it twice, since the first time I noticed that my two major problems were attack drops on the champion fight (going into his Venusaur with -4 attack with no special moves really sucked) and just PP in general. So I went out and farmed PP items and replaced Yawn with Psychic, and I was good to go

Spoiler: Video of E4 and Champion:



Robert the Snorlax, Lv. 73 @ Quick Claw
Thick Fat
-Return
-Shadow Ball
-Psychic
-Earthquake


HM Buddys:

Ch'ding- Cut, Fly

Lapras- Strength, Surf

Hi there everyone,

With the new year and the release of Pokemon Sun & Moon the solo challenge has become very cluttered full of updates and inactive challengers and honestly going through it all and fixing it up has become very tedious. In order to remedy this I have decided it's about time we close the Combined Solo Challenge thread and start anew. I have since written up and submitted a new Solo Challenge thread which should hopefully be approved soon.

I have gone through the current thread and fixed all the spriting errors that we had and have completely updated the OP so people can still see their progress, but I feel it's about time the solo challenge got a bit of a revamp since the thread was opened almost 7 years ago.

I will not be carrying over any of the progress currently posted here to the new thread unless you all make a new post over in the new thread. This is just to avoid bringing over the inactive and outdated champions. Also, when it comes to ultimate challenges in the new thread they will all require a game from gen 7 since it's been out for 4ish months now which is more than enough time for challengers to pick up the games.

Sad to see such an old thread go but it's time for a fresh start. I hope to see you all over in the new thread :]
