      a few years ago, I got ruby. I just played normaly through the game. in the first forest (forgot name, didn't palyed it for months), I found three shiny silcoons/cascoons in a row! stupid enough, I didn't knew why it had such strange star coming up, and I though it has a normal color. I looked for information on internet, and a few days later I found out that they were shiny. I alredy felt stupid for not catching them, but when I found out that the change of finding a shiny was 1/8192 I really was so angry I didn't played ruby for a month.

                        Restarted LeafGreen. Currently, I have a Bulbasaur, Pidgey and Rattata, and they are all training for the second rival battle. Today I might go to Viridian Forest, where I'll catch a Caterpie to train up. I am going to trade all my Pokes up to Lv.13-15 before I battle Brock.

                        I am going to restart Sapphire sometime soon too.

                            I restarted on FireRed a few days ago, and once again chose Charmander as my starter. After the errand for Oak, I trained my Charmander to lvl 10, then went to Viradin City to pick up some Poke'Balls and Potions, as well as an Antidote for the forest. I headed up to Viradin Forest and caught me some a sweet lvl 5 Pikachu :). And then I headed to Route 22 and caught me a Mankey for Brock's gym, and just keep it lol. Trained Pikachu, and Mankey to lvl 9, and challenged Gary. After I pwned him, I headed in the forest again caught a few pokemon for the PC, and battled some trainers. Got Charmander to lvl 13, Pikachu to lvl 12, and Mankey to lvl 12. Then I headed out of the forest got on Route 2 and got Charmander to lvl 14, then arrived in Pewter City.

                            Pewter City/Kanto Gym Battle #1

                            I healed my Pokemon at the Pokemon Center, vistited the museum which I don't know why I always do lol, picked up an extra potion and headed to the gym. I pwned the junior trainer and headed to good old Brock. I challenged Brock, he send out Geodude, I used Pikachu to keep using Tail Whip to lower its defense, then switched to Mankey and low kick it death. Pikachu and Mankey raised in lvl to Pikachu lvl 13, and Mankey lvl 13. Next came his Onix, I switched out Mankey and switched to Charmander. Onix was a challenge for him but that did'nt him. I had Charmander leer him, then had him use Ember which burned him! Then I used a couple Metal Claws' and owned onix. I got my boulder badge and picked up some more potions at the shop and headed to Route 3 getting the running shoes as I went.

                            Route 3/Mt. Moon

                            Nothing special on this route battled the Mountain of trainers along the way, raised Charmander to lvl 16, Pikachu to lvl 14, as well as Mankey to 14. Then when I hit the grass I found myself a Male Nidoran! Score! lol. Caught it, it started at lvl 7 but with some wild pokemon battles got him to lvl 12 quickly. I got the berry near the PC, then headed into Mt. Moon. Being here brings back memories from the orignal Red and Yellow versions as well as the anime. Soon as I entered I got ambrused by a Zubat, caught it and moved on to pick up the items. Battled the trainers as usual, then got the Rare Candy, used it to raise Charmander up a lvl.

                            Now it was Charmander lvl 18, Pikachu lvl 16, Mankey lvl 16, and Nidoran lvl 15. After I owned the Rockets and battled the nerd for the fossil and like always I always pick the Helix Fossil ( because its better then Dome fossil lol), before I left my Nidoran evolved to Nidorino! but I did'nt want to use the Moon stone on him yet til he got higher in lvl. Afterwards I left Mt. Moon, and saved my game on Route 4.

                            Route 4/Cerulean City/Cerulean Cape

                            The usual nothing special here, got the moves Mega Punch, and Mega Kick from the blackbelts. I give Mega Kick to Charmander, and Mega Punch to Mankey. I caught me an Ekans for the PC and headed to Cerulean City. The one thing I missed from the original is the blue screen whenever i came here lol. Anyway sold and got some more balls, potions, and got a couple Palalyze Heals and Awakenings. Then got I headed to Cerulean Cape ( called that in G/S/C but it is Route 24 and Route 25. ) and battled Gary again. No need to tell you how it ended but my Pokemon were lvl raised.

                            Charmander lvl 21, Pikachu lvl 17, Mankey lvl 17, and Nidorino lvl 18. Owned the trainers on the bridge got the prize, and caught me a Oddish and Abra in the grass. I never liked oddish so I put it in my PC as well as abra. When I got to Route 25 I owned all the trainers got the Secert Power TM and headed to Bill's place. Did him the usual favor of helping him out of the costume and headed back to Cerulean City.

                            Going for the Dig/Kanto Gym Battle #2

                            When I got back to Cerulean City I when to the house on the right and battled the Rocket and got the Dig TM which I taught to Nidorino. Then I headed to the gym to fight Good old Misty. Pwned the trainers and headed to Misty. My stats now were: Charmander lvl 23, Pikachu lvl 20, Mankey 19, and Nidorino lvl 19. This battle was hard even with Pikachu! She send out Staryu first as always, and I send out Charmander. Now since I did this like with Brock you can tell I could careless for most type disadvantages XD. I made Charmander use Mega Kick and got Staryu's health down but he used Recover >_> so I kept using Mega Kick but he did'nt go down!

                            So I switched to Pikachu and used thundershock a couple times and pwned him. Then Misty send out Starmie, so I stuck with Pikachu, but starmie got the jump on me and used Water Pulse and owned my little Pikachu! So I switched back to Charmander and attempted a Mega Kick but Starmie went first again with Water Pulse and owned Charmander... then I switched for Mankey luckly I got the first hit with Mega Punch it got down alittle, then her Starmie used Swift, but mankey still stood so I used Karate Chop and got it to yellow but Starie used Water Pulse and owned Mankey now!

                            But he did what I intended, so I switched to Nidorino and used Poison Sting, and got him poisoned! It used Water pulse but it missed! XD So I used Dig, while he was in the red with poison. Misty did'nt even use a Super Potion, which meaned she knew she was about to be owned. So Dig hit the mark and Starmie went down! Finally! Got my well earned Casade Badge, and when to the PC, then the shop picked some Super potions and headed on to Route 5 and Vermillion City, but I saved first and took a break.

                            That's all for now, more soon ^^'.

                                    I just beat Brawly and went through the evil that is Granite Cave and finished the muesem. My pokemon need real training because all of them are at Level 12 - 14

                                      Sorry about DPing. It won't happen again.

                                      I just beat the Elite Four! It was epic fun. My Pokemon were about lv 60 and being Crushed by Bruno because Hydro Pump missed 5 times in a row (ouch). Nidoqueen was my last Pokemon left, against Machamp. I stalled it long enough to Max Revive Gyarados, Clefable & Beedrill. Aerial Acing Beedril FTW.

                                      Crunching, Tbolting Nidoqueen pwned Agatha (along with Earthquaking Gyarados for Arbok).

                                      And then my battle against Lance was delicious. Tbolting Nidoqueen for Gyarados, then Clefable came in to play against Dragonair. Dragonair Twaved which was a pretty big hindrance whilst I was trying to Cosmic Power up. It kept using Outrage which after 5 cosmic powers took about 10 HP away, then my Clefable Softboiled, and swept the Dragonairs, Dragonite & Aerodactyl with Ice Beam.

                                      Gary was boring. Just brought out type advantages for an easy win.

                                      Now I'm on Five Island, after obtaining the passwords for the warehouse and receiving the National Dex from Oak.

                                      Nidoqueen lv 65 (Crunch, Thunderbolt, Double Kick, Rock Slide)

                                        After many months of soft resettting, my quests on FR and LG have begun once more.

                                        You see, over the past few months, I've been soft resetting for shiny Bulbasaur and shiny Squirtle on FireRed and LeafGreen respectively. On November 24th, I got my shiny Bulbasaur and started my adventure on that game. And just four hours ago, I got a shiny Squirtle on LG.

                                        I've progressed quite a bit on FR. As of right now, I have three badges, and I'm SRing for a shiny Lapras. All I have is my shiny Bulbasaur in my party, which is at level 46, and the rest of my team (the members that actually battle) are in the mid-to-low 30's.

                                        As for LG, I haven't even gone past Viridian City. Even though I got my shiny Squirtle at around 5 PM, I was too busy posting on other forums, telling others of my new acquisition, and just playing really slowly, up until about 7 PM, when I had to leave home for basketball practice. I just got back home, and I'm training my shiny Squirtle to level 14 before I beat my rival and move on to Viridian City.
                                        I LOVE SHINY POKEMON!

                                          For the past few days on LG I've been on and off SRing for a Shiny Moltres, so far I've racked up 255 SR's and no luck. >_< I'm not giving up until I see that sparkle. Though I lack patience. shiny hunting is something I have patience to do. o.o

                                            Yesterday I finally caught Mewtwo in Leaf Green. After many epic, but fruitless, battles it finally came down to a quick one where I used only 3 ultra balls! Now I'm trying to decide if I want to get a Game Shark and go to Eight and Nine Island.

                                                  After a seemingly endless amounts of breeding in Emerald I finally have the party of babies within my IV range and purpose fulfillment. Now I'm currently EV training each of them, starting with HP needs.

                                                  I might take a break from all of that to TRY and catch a Nosepass and steal a dragon scale from a wild Horsea to evolve my Seadra so I can finally finish my Hoenn dex...
