    Does anyone like the idea of an ultimate monotype face off when a good amount of challengers finish generation 4? Playing with a team of the type we chose against each other will be fun, even if there are type disadvantages. It'll mean that you don't use an emulator for Pokemon D/P, which means, sadly, starting a new game.
    The winner gets awesome points

      Update #2:

      -I instantly evolved Exeggcute into Exeggutor
      -Went back to Celadon & beat Erika
      -Went back to Fuschia & beat Koga
      -Surfed to Cinnabar to get it on the map early.
      -Caught a Tangela
      -Swept through the Fighting Dojo
      -Defeated every last Rocket in the Silph Tower (Somewhere in between all of that, I evolved Weepinbell into Victreebel)
      -Defeated Sabrina
      -Went through the Pokemon Mansion to get the Secret Key
      -Beat Blaine
      -Went to Viridian, and got my final badge

      And now I'm stopped in front of Rival Gary, with the following team:

      Victreebel Lv40

      -Razor Leaf
      -Acid
      -Wrap
      -Stun Spore

      Tangela Lv40

      -Mega Drain
      -Bind
      -Sleep Powder
      -Stun Spore

      Venusaur Lv40

      -Body Slam
      -Poisonpowder
      -Leech Seed
      -Razor Leaf

      Exeggutor Lv41

      -Psychic
      -Hypnosis
      -Reflect
      -Egg Bomb

      Parasect Lv41

      -Slash
      -Stun Spore
      -Leech Life
      -Spore

      And HM()A (Snorlax), for the final stretch, which requires Surf & Strength.

      Spoiler:

      This happened when it was at Full Health?

        Update. I am at the third gym, and ready to win.

        The online challenge, I don't really like the idea, my connection is horrible, so I can't do anything beyond internet.
        ------------------------
        Er... Well, I am near completion now(sorta) I am really close to being near (sorta). Anyways, as far as progress.... I beat Kyogre. And as of right now I am training for the gym.

        Pokemon-
        Sableye-53
        Sableye-47
        Dusclops-39
        Banette-41
        Shuppet-31
        ----
        Ok, update. I beat the gym, and I am fighting the champion as of now.
        ---
        Whew. I beat the champion, but just barely.

        Pokemon-
        Sableye-56
        Sableye-54
        Dusclops-50
        Banette-48
        Banette-51

        I beat him with my Dusclops... with a few hp left. That was teh closest ever.

          Very Abrupt and Unfortunate update from contestant aaronburnsyou:

          I was able to get a lot done over the weekend, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to play for quite a while, so in the event that I have to put progress on hold, I'll just put up my current progress.

          -Reached Indigo Plateau, currently training

          And my team:

          Tangela Lv45
          (Switched Sleep Powder for Slam)
          Parasect Lv45
          (Switched Stun Spore for Dig)
          Venusaur Lv46
          (Same Moves)
          Exeggutor Lv46
          (Same Moves)
          Victreebel Lv47 (Pretty much what's holding my team together)
          (Same Moves)

          As I said, I'm not sure whether or not I'm going to put progress on hold, but if I do end up continuing normally, I'll probably have another report up tomorrow.

            Jake™'s Water Challenge, Kanto: Entry #1

            As you probably could guess, taking a water challenge, I chose Squirtle of my challenge...DING! You are correct! I chose my Squirtle (Nicknamed Franklin [You know that kids show based off the Franklin books? I always thought that first generation Squirtle looked like him ]), kicked my Rival's (Named Douche) butt, and carried on to receive Oak's Parcel and deliver it to him. After gaining my Pokedex, I raised Squirtle to level 10, and took on Douche once more on Route 22, spamming Tail Whip on Bulbasaur to take it out.

            I proceeded through Viridian Forest, stacking up on Antidotes beforehand, as I always get unlucky and am poisoned via Poison Sting from all the Weedles. After exiting, I was low on health, low on PP, but hit level 12.

            After healing up, I proceeded to the Pewter City gym, and utterly destroyed the Junior Trainer with Bubble, then cleaned up Brock with Water Gun. I evolved Franklin in the process.

            I moved up towards Mt Moon, and of course, I just HAD to pick up that AWESOME Magikarp! Obviously it is the most useful Water Pokemon EVER, so I named it Neptune (God of the Sea) accordingly. Unfortunately, I was forced to constantly switch my Pokemon to give levels to Neptune (Ahh, the irony is portrayed!), but it was alright.

            After exiting Mt Moon (On the second time, that second to last Rocket with the Raticate owned me :D), I proceeded into Cerulean City, healed up, and entered Misty's gym. After beating up on the trainers inside, I healed up once more, and took on Misty. After losing once, I determined my best strategy would be to keep spamming Tail Whips and finish off her Pokemon with Tackle on Franklin. The best part? Misty would ONLY use Tackle on my Pokemon

            Proceeding to Nugget Bridge, I pounced on all the trainers, and proceeded to save Bill, and I gained the SS Ticket and some Pokedex pages.

            Defeating the Rocket with the Dig TM was also a piece of cake, and I proceeded down to Vermillion, where Neptue evolved! I am now going through the SS Anne.


            Neptune (Level 26)
            Bite
            Tail Whip
            Bubble Beam
            Water Gun

            (You know, this sprite really wasn't that bad)
            Neptune (Level 22)
            Splash
            Tackle
            Bite
            Water Gun

            ÄgàmêñÐmØÑ, you sure are going through this thing fast. May I ask what this "super duper training method" of yours is?

                Oh... My... God...

                D/P is EVIL!

                5 hours in, and Kricketot evolved into Kricketune... but now I can't kill anything without hardships :(

                Roark is gonna be a royal nightmare, but hopefully getting to level 18 for sing will make it SOMEWHAT easier...

                    Well,after reckless hours of training Butterfree, I finally beat Brock's Butt!
                    I started up the route leading to Mt.Moon, and saved before the entrance. Also,I got the running shoes(Thank God!)

                        I might join, but one question. About the emulators, people make videos to show proof, how do I record it so I can post proof?

                        Well with VBA, you can go to the taskbar at the top and somewhere there is a record feature.

                            Chapter 3: VS Lt. Surge
                            Obtaining the Cascadebadge, I went off to take down the grunt, to recieve Dig. Once that was cleared, I went straight for Vermillion City in hopes for a Thunderbadge. On my way, I fought against some trainers for experience. Reaching the city, I went to the fan club and got myself a Bike Voucher.

                            Next I had to train, by going to Route 12 where Snorlax was. He will make a good TM slave later on. Having done that, I went onto the S.S. Anne clearing all the trainers. On my way to the captain's room, I met Blue again, creaming him without an effort.

                            Entering the captain's room, I had to rub his back xP. Once that was done, he gave me Cut which was needed to get to the gym to recieve Flash. After, I went to get Flash on Route 2. Suprisingly, I already owned 10 Pokemon, so no effort needed.

                            Fighting in Vermillion Gym was easy with my newly trained team. Lt. Surge's Pokemon weren't all that tough, by it was certainly fun to recieve my Thunderbadge!

                              Ok then. I'd like to sign up for dragon, but if someone knows the way to record my game, will the tell me, because I won't start until then, because I am going to record everything big.

                                  Oh, before I start, I want people to know how I am getting the Dragon early on. I am trading, via VBA Link, with another computer using their IP Adress.

                                        Sidney - Ground over Darkness
                                        Id say this was the 2nd easiest battle. His powerhouse (Abosl) was 2HKOd by Roll (the weakest in my party). His grass-types were taken down with Blue's Ice Beam and Sandy took care of the rest.

                                        Phoebe - Ghostkilla
                                        Tough battle, but still not a challenge. Sandy and Blue did most of the work, with some help from Clay. She and Steven were the only ones who managed to KO at least one of my pokemon. After I sent her ghosts back to the grave, i moved on to challenge Glacia...

                                        Glacia - Turning the Tables
                                        I only used Blue in this one. Double Team came in handy, as I spammed it at first, then I defeated her pokemon with Surf and Mud Shot. It was the toughest E4 battle. Then I went to see "the truly fearsome side of the pokemon league"...

                                        Drake - Owning the Dragons
                                        Easiest battle by far. Just needed blue, and he barely left a scratch on him. 4 Ice Beams were enough to bring down Shelgon, and then Swampert OHKOd the rest using that move. After he got OWNED in two secs, I moved on to own the Champion.

                                        Steven - Ground vs Steel
                                        Vulcan OHKOd his Skarmory and Metagross using Eruption; Blue took care of Aggron and Claydol and, with the help of Sandy, managed to KO his fossils (armaldo and Cradily). No challenge at all, this is by far the easiest E4. Too bad Blue learned Earthquake ater the match

                                        Now the final Team:


                                        Blue - Lv 52
                                        Surf
                                        Ice Beam
                                        Earthquake
                                        Double Team


                                        Sandy - Lv 51
                                        Dragon Claw
                                        Earthquake
                                        Crunch
                                        Fly


                                        Clay - Lv 49
                                        Shadow Ball
                                        Psychic
                                        Ancientpower
                                        Cosmic Power


                                        Vulcan - Lv 48
