    Hmm, this is a pretty good idea :) I might try this once I SR my shiny Ho-oh and transfer it to my Diamond.

    I would probably go with:

    Shroomish/Evolving/Soul Silver

    I'm pretty sure the Spore/Focus Punch/Seed Bomb/Facade or Rock Slide set up will own everything in game :)

      Sounds good, I actually did this with the japanese version of Heart Gold, I used a Totodile (evolving) and ended up with a level 70 Feraligatr near the end of the game, I might try this again on the japanese rom sometime (don't want to lose my save file from Soul Silver)

      75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

          I just did this with my Feraligatr, but is it cheating if you have to revive your one pokemon? Red was super-hard, I was level 90 by time I got to him, then used a few rare candies to even the odds.

            I have disqualified myself because I decided not to solo-run after all, adding a Sceptile. Now I'm double-running.

              Bump

              I think I'll be doing this... Is it okay if I get a level 5 Oddish from Noisy Forest on the PokeWalker?

              If so, (Undecided Nickname)/Oddish/Not Evolving/Heart Gold

                I will have to use cheats for this I think. I'm not sure, I've forgotten if you get Headbutt before the 2nd gym or not. It's in that Forest with the Fardfetch'd

                Also, I may add a nickname later.

                  I will use a cheat (I hope you allow me) to add him in my team after getting my starter Totodile (which I will use for Surfing) and I will start my journey ;]

                      I used Vacuum Wave (fighting-type attack) and Clefairy got down with 2 hits (it used Mimic so I didn't get damage from it). The Miltank used Rollout (because it's sooo smart >_<) and got my HP down to 22 before my 3rd (and final) hit with Vacuum Wave and when it fainted.

                                You should try using Pokesav so you can get the Oddish from the very begining :]
                                [Click Here] to download the ZIP file containing HGSS pokesav :P

                                That's how I got Scyther from the beginning :P

                                  Yeah, I could do that, I guess :P

                                  I'll do that if I get too angry trying to get one from my Pokéwalker, since I already have the ROM and such...

                                    I'm doing the challenge on an emulator :]
                                    Don't want to loose my game on the DS xD

                                    Anyway we shouldn't go too much off topic :]
                                    If you need some help with the Pokesav PM me ;)

                                      Yeah, right :P

                                      Hmm... I thought of a nickname.

                                      Blade, that's if I do do the emu, as the Pokéwalker one is Female, and it's more of a Male name...

                                      Actually, I think I'm gonna start it on an Emu, I'll play HG as I intended to play it (With a Chikorita starter, mostly :P )

                                      Edit:

                                      So, Blade/Oddish/Not Evolving/Heart Gold

                                        JOURNEY UPDATE
                                        • Got through Mt. Mortar and picked up all the items I could
                                        • Arrived at Mahogany Town
                                        • Got back to Ecruteak City by water (the routes outside Mt. Mortar)
                                        • Helped that sick Miltank and bought some Moomoo milk *Moooo!* xD
                                        • Arived at Olivine City
                                        • Cleared out the Lighthouse
                                        • Got the SecretPotion for the Ampharos

                                        SIDE-QUEST BATTLE


                                        Battle comment:
                                        Nothing really hard ... the Drowzee and Haunter needed only one Pursuit and the Electrode was PWND with one X-Scissor. Yay for Flow!

                                        BTW I hope you like the VS. Eusine title that I made. Took me some time but it wasn't that hard to make ^_^




                                        GYM BATTLE


                                        Battle comment:
                                        As you may guess I used only Wing Attack in this gym so every single pokemon was OHKO'd. Not even a tiny challenge for my awesome Scyther! xD


                                        My Solo Runner after the battle:




                                        Flow [Lv.42]
                                        Moves:
                                        X-Scissor
                                        Wing Attack
                                        Slash
                                        Pursuit


                                        PS: And because I'm smart and stuff I don't have a Flying pokemon to learn it HM02 (Fly). Now I have to find one >_<

                                            First I'd like to welcome you to the community! :]

                                            So anyway ... onto the answer:
                                            This is a challenge ... you can participate in it if you want :P

                                            In this specific challenge you have to choose one single pokemon to use while going through the game.
                                            For example ... I use Scyther and I have to fight with it in every battle! None other pokemon. Of course you can have other pokemon that you can use for HM slaves and you are allowed to use them pokemon in double battles too.

                                            If you would like to participate or know more about the rules of this challenge I offer you to read the first post by The Opera Ghost where it's explained how to.

                                            Jasmine ... now THAT was a hard battle. It took me 2 times trying to beat her! That OP, non-defeatable, destroying, big ... Steelix! That thing is a MONSTER!
                                            Anyway ... I did beat it on the second try ... but it was kinda embarrassing >_<

                                            And if it wasn't for that chance that Jasmine gave me when she didn't heal up her Steelix when it was on the red line ... jeez!

                                              I would like to know if I can be added to the list even though I am using Platinum. I do have Soul Silver, but my game isn't done yet so restarting is not an option. Also, my girlfriend has Heart Gold so I won't really get it. And lastly, there is no challenge thread in The Pt/D/P sub-forum =(

                                              Thank you =)
