    After aquiring the MarshBadge I headed back to Pallet Town via Diglett's cave (no real reason, probably would've been quicker to get HM02) and then surfed south to Cinnibar Island. I decided to investigate the creepy looking mansion before even thinking about entering the gym. Several super potions and antidotes later, I found a key, huh. Anyway, rather than doing the smart thing and training my team up, I went straight over to the gym.

    Leader Battle: Blaine
    Team:
    Raticate Lv.38 Water Gun, Tail Whip, Dig, Hyper Fang
    Pidgeot Lv.37 Swift, Sand Attack, Double-Edge, Wing Attack
    Chansey Lv.38 Psychic, Bubblebeam, Thunderbolt, Sing
    Snorlax Lv.38 Body Slam, Surf, Rest, Strength
    Persian Lv.38 Body Slam, Bite, Double Team, Screech
    Porygon Lv.29 Ice Beam, Tri Attack, Psybeam, Recover

    What a dissappointment, heck, half the time he just used super potions, even when his 'mons were still on full health. Anyway, after that I surfed back to Pallet town and headed to Viridian City for badge #8.

    Leader Battle: Giovanni
    Team:
    Porygon Lv.30 Psybeam, Tri Attack, Ice Beam, Recover
    Persian Lv.39 Bite, Body Slam, Double Team, Screech
    Pidgeot Lv.38 Swift, Double-edge, Sand-attack, Wing Attack
    Snorlax Lv.39 Surf, Body Slam, Rest, Amnesia
    Chansey Lv.39 Thunderbolt, Bubblebeam, Psychic, Minimize
    RaticateLv.39 Dig, Hyper Fang, Tail Whip, Water Gun

    Remember what I said about Blaine being dissapointing? Well, Giovanni wasn't much better. Anyways, I finally had all 8 badges and was off to the pokemon league...after handing my rival another beatdown.

    Victory Road was mildly annoying and was followed by my first actual level grind in this playthrough. I got my team to Lv.40-45 and taught them a couple of moves before taking on the elite four. I'd like to give a play by play of these battles but honestly, they weren't very memorable. Heck the only thing that stands out is that I tried to DoubleTeam/Bodyslam sweep Lorelei's team (Only time I actually used DT or Minimize) only to be defeated by the somehow still able to get a 100% hit rate Cloyster.

    Anyway, Elite Four got brutalised, Lance was probably the easiest of the lot but there was still the champion fight...I used a save state because I knew he had a good 15-20 levels on me. Type advantages were used and his first 5 mons did pretty much nothing. Unfortunately, I underestimated Venusaur and got swept the first time around. Cue the save state, and a critical Sky Attack from Pidgeot.

    Pokemon Blue. Monotype Normal challenge...Finished.

    Final Team:
    Porygon Lv.45 Psybeam, Tri Attack, Ice Beam, Recover
    Persian Lv.41 Bite, Body Slam, Double Team, Screech
    Pidgeot Lv.43 Swift, Double-edge, Sand-attack, Sky Attack
    Snorlax Lv.46 Surf, Body Slam, Rest, Amnesia
    Chansey Lv.49 Thunderbolt, Bubblebeam, Psychic, Minimize
    RaticateLv.46 Dig, Hyper Fang, Tail Whip, Super Fang

    MVP: Chansey
    Award for Effort: Persian

    Next time. Pokemon Crystal.

      I've finished Johto. I'll post my final team later. Also, if I use Emerald, do I have to beat the Frontier Brains?

          Okay, time for an update.

          -Took Charmander as starter
          -Beat Rival in first battle
          -Got Oak's Package
          -Delivered Oak's Package and received Pokedex
          -Arrived at Viridian City
          -Grinded on Route 22 untill Charmander was Level 10
          -Beat rival on Route 22 in the second rival battle
          -Easily went through the Viridian Forest
          -Beat Pewter Gym trainer
          -Did 2 extra wild battles for a Level 16 evolution of Charmander
          -Took out Brock using Charmeleon's Metal Claw

          That's it for now, I don't know why but I recorded all 40 minutes of this and I probably will record the rest

            Wings (Zubat) Lv. 13

            Rosie (Roselia) Lv. 14

              I would enjoy being a part of an ULTIMATE monotype challenge under the banner of the GRASS type. I shall begin and you shall hear from me later on.

                  Yay, I was the last winner of the original one :D! Here's my Ghost team:


                  Spook/Mismagius
                  Level 63
                  Nature: Mild
                  Ability: Levitate
                  Moveset:
                  - Shadow Ball
                  - Thunderbolt
                  - Psychic
                  - Aerial Ace


                  Electron/Rotom
                  Level 61
                  Nature: Quirky
                  Ability: Levitate
                  Moveset:
                  - Shadow Ball
                  - Discharge
                  - Substitute
                  - Charge Beam


                  Boo/Gengar
                  Level 60
                  Nature: Relaxed

                  - Shadow Ball
                  - Thunderbolt
                  - Sludge Bomb
                  - Energy Ball

                  This team should be called Team Levitate lol :D

                  I liked DPPt the most in the Ghost UMC, since it was the only time I didn't do a solo run :x. I solo'd with Haunter in FR, solo'd with Gengar in Crystal and solo'd with Sableye in Ruby.

                    Rofl, I almost did that. I did a two Gengar run on Silver, though. Alpha and Omega, how I miss you. I'm having problems right now at Byron's gym for my ghost UMC on platinum. Can't get past his magneton, because it one hits me with thunderbolt.

                      Okay. Since I'm bored during the [[rest]] of the summer and all my games are free (finished a Random, yay !) I guess I'll give this a go ! (again, after a mass glitch failure...)

                      Okay, I've decided. I'm going with Fire types on the following :

                      Red (emulated) -- Crystal (emulated) -- Ruby (GBAd) -- Platinum (DSid)

                      I'm curious how this turns out. Oh, I'm doing a bloody script. Stay tuned !

                        Get a Focus Blast TM from Veilstone and teach it to Gengar if you have one.

                          Ah, that would probably make things easier, thanks. Right now, I'm using a Drifblim (MVP, at level like 45) that knows Minimize, Shadow Ball, Payback, and Fly, and a level like 30 Haunter that I don't even know what it knows because I've been neglecting him. Its like Shadow Punch, Curse, Payback, Spite or something. Still waiting for another DS so that I can trade and get a Gengar. I'm eventually going to get a Froslass and a Dusknoir.

                            I defeated red after a short(ish) break from the challenge! Charizard and his flamethrower.. Hate reds life.


                            Pikachu was taken out easily with Boulder. Couple of crunches and an iron tail and it was done. Espeon tried to give me a challenge. I sent out Scythe. Used swords dance and one critical slash and espeon was down. Venusaur was up next. I sent out Jet, and killed it with peck. Then, he sent out my only real weakness in this battle. Charizard. I switched between scythe and boulder, having them revive one another until flamethrower was out. I then used rock throw and took him out in a few shots. Blastoise, i started with Pinecone and used explosion, weakening him. I then sent out Philips and finished him. Snorlax was the final one. I paralyzed him with thunder wave, then revived Pinecone. I sent him out and he exploded.

                            Johto, is done! next up, Hoenn.. Or however you spell it.


                            My Final Team...


                            Boulder/Steelix

                            Level 60

                            -Iron Tail
                            -Dragon Breath
                            -Crunch
                            -Rock Throw

                            Steelix was easily the MVP on this team. He was useful throughout the entire game. I was planning on giving him earthquake, but I'm glad i didn't. I probably would've gotten rid of rock throw, and that would've made killing fire types harder. Gonna miss him on gen three..



                            Scythe/Scizor

                            Level 58

                            -Quick Attack
                            -Metal Claw
                            -Slash
                            -Swords Dance

                            The second best on this team. In the begging, i was about to ditch him. I'm so glad that i didn't. It wasn't completely smart of me to not put any fighting moves on him, but it worked out in the end. Not sure if he pops up in the next one. But if he does, he'll be on my team for sure...


                            Jet/Skarmory

                            Level 56

                            -Peck
                            -Steel Wing
                            -Swift
                            -Fly

                            I didn't think that he would stick in my team, or be useful at all. But in the E4 fights, he helped a lot. And i needed to fight them a few times so i could afford more revives, which helped me with red extremely. Hope i can see him again...



                            Philips/Magneton

                            Level 58

                            -Tri Attack
                            -Thunder Shock
                            -Thunder Wave
                            -Zap Cannon

                            He.. Well, it helped throughout the entire game. Especially during the E4, like most of my pokes. Looking forward to the 4th Gen so i can use his evolution...



                            Pinecon/Forretress

                            Level 55

                            -Spike
                            -Rapid Spin
                            -Explosion
                            -Take Down

                            He was actually the worst on my team. I could barely kill anything with him. He was most useful in the red fight, where he exploded and killed snorlax and crippled blastoise. If he's in the next few games, i might get him for his explosiveness...


                            After doing some research, i decided that i will play ruby, for mawile. Steel types are scarce in all the games, so i need all the help i can find. I will post an update when.. when i feel like it i guess..

                              SECO'S BURNING MONOTYPE !

                              Red -- Crystal -- Ruby -- Platinum


                              Well, what can boredom do out of people ! Anyways, this is the start of my script. I'm gonna try and keep you entertained !

                              -----------------------------------------
                              Start of : Pokemon Monotype.
                              Oh, what can boredom do out of people ? Make them kill somebody ? Murder themselves ?! No. It tempts them into doing a challenge. A hard one. A long one. A time-consuming one. The Ultimate Monotype Challenge (UMC). And thus, our hero from Pallet/New Bark/Littleroot/Twinleaf begins this challenge with the type of flames. From Kanto, to Sinnoh. And everything inbeetween !

                              "Battle hard. Battle fierce. Battle to the end !" (Dragon Guard Scanlations, 2008)


                              note : as a note to myself ...

                              RED font will be for Seco, the protagonist, while the BLUE foint will always be for the rivals. The Proffesor will use a GREEN font, while other trainers will have various other fonts. Pokemon will be represented by Trozei! sprites (eg. ) and Sinnoh Pokemon will simply have their stat screen little sprite.
                              ----------------------------------------------------------------

                              Chapter 1 : A CHARMing beggining


                              Yawn ... a new SNES ?! What's this all about ?


                              Hmm... there's a Potion in the PC ? Why ? What is HAPPENING ??

                              No, Charmiz ! I mean, fire types. Like your dad and my mother.


                              Oh. Okay. Bye then.

                              WAIT !! Oh, he left already. Silly ~ he has no idea where to go !



                              Seco was pleasently enjoying his 8-bit trip thorugh Pallet, when he remembered the thing that stumped any kids : you had to go out of Pallet to actually advance...



                              OHAIDER Kid ! l33t k3wl, r u teht Sek ?


                              Huh ? Are you Oak ??

                              Seco followed the strange Prof. to his lab. Vector was also there
                              .

                                    Right then, because I don't have to go many places to check my updates, I can focus more on doing my monotypes! So, I will continue my RBY Normal Monotype (Alakazam, you can add me to the ultimate for all the types. If you trust me, I'm on Johto for Grass, Poison, Ground, Psychic, and Rock. I'm on Kanto still for all the others (except Dark and Steel obviously). Going to finish up Normal Kanto right now (its basically a Clefable solo run, although I have a Wigglytuff I've been training).

                                    Made it to Celadon. Taught Clefable Ice Beam.
                                    Went to Saffron so Clefable could learn Psychic.
                                    Got Fly for Farfetch'd the Cut/Fly slave
                                    Took down the Pokemon Tower
                                    Took out Erika's gym in one round, but had to go back and heal for Erika (was out of Ice Beam/Psychic)
                                    Erika fainted in 3 Ice Beams.
                                    Because I'm awesome and know what's up, I got only the Hyper Potion, Full Heal, Max Revive, Protein, Card Key, Calcium, Carbos, and Rare Candy in Silph. Also beat Rival, got Lapras, and beat Giovanni.

                                    Used the Master ball on Snorlax
                                    Beat Koga
                                    O_o caught a Chansey. Got Surf and Strength, which I taught to Snorlax.
                                    Beat Blaine after getting the Secret Key.
                                    Went back and Beat Sabrina
                                    Then Giovanni
                                    Then Rival
                                    Got through Victory Road.
                                    Loreli didn't like Thunderbolt
                                    Bruno didn't like Bubblebeam/Psychic
                                    Agatha didn't like Thunderbolt/Psychic
                                    Lance didn't like Ice Beam (although Aerodactyl did kill Clefable and I had to use a Max Revive)
                                    Rival was really tough, and Alakazam almost ran me out of attacks with Recover, but I beat him... finally. Screenshots coming up.


                                    Oh boy we're not clear. Hopefully you can read it all.

                                      It has been a busy day and here is the lowdown on what i have done.

                                      The Story Begins:

                                      -Started adventure as Mud and rival Flare

                                      -Left pallet...wait was stopped by Oak

                                      -Received Leaves(Bulbasaur) and left...oh wait cant leave the lab yet...stopped by Flare

                                      -Promptly lost to a Charmander who couldn't stay away from Crit's

                                      -Finally left Pallet and promptly got owned by a Pidgy. (they know gust on lvl 4, news to me)

                                      -Got to Viridian received oak's parcel and returned it to Oak

                                      -Received pokedex and was finally on my way to becoming a grass pokemon master

                                      -Got back to Viridian and headed over to the Indigo Plato to face Flare, fail

                                      -Go part way through Viridian Forest, returned and faced Flare again, 2nd fail

                                      -Finally got through Viridian Forest, healed and returned

                                      -Faced Flare AGAIN and as proven by they saying, the 3rd times the charm, finally won

                                      -Arrived in Pewter, challenged the gym, and won on the first attempt with my only pokemon Leaves running right through with vine whip

                                      -Started down route 3 and Leaves reached lvl 16, Hello Ivysaur

                                      -Finished route 3 and entered Mt. Moon

                                      -Caught the second member of my team Shrooms(Paras)

                                      -After a couple hours of training, running, fighting, frustration, and reliving the horror that is Zubat i have gotten through Mt. Moon and have arrived in
                                      Cerulean

                                      -Going toward Nugget bridge i had a fateful encounter with Flare and won handily

                                      -Attempted the Nugget bridge and won with a couple trips to the PokeCenter to keep Shrooms alive

                                      -Finished the bridge and received Team Rocket invitation which i quickly and forcefully declined

                                      -On route 5 added the next member to my team Oddish (Oddish) [oops, quickly find the name rater]

                                      -Got to and helped Bill, who was convinced i didn't want to see his rare pokemon, but instead gave me the S.S. ticket

                                      -Flattened Misty with the only pokemon seeing battle being Oddish who spammed the absorb

                                      -Showed Team rocket what's what and received Dig
                                      with a quick heal i was on my way toward vermilion

                                      -Flew through the underground path and destroyed some trainers, and was ultimately sent all the way back up to Cerulean

                                      -More fights and a couple heals later, arrived in Vermilion

                                      -First stop in Vermilion would be the S.S. ANNE

                                      -Cleared the S.S. ANNE allowing Shrooms and Oddish to evolve then ran into Flare and failed quite hard

                                      -After failing for about five more times i beat Flare with a Poison Powder and an Absorb/Scratch combo MVP goes to Gloom for poisoning Charmelion

                                      -Met the captain and gave him a back massage, in his gratitude he gave me HM01 for cutting

                                        Pikachu was taken out easily with Boulder. Couple of crunches and an iron tail and it was done. Espeon tried to give me a challenge. I sent out Scythe. Used swords dance and one critical slash and espeon was down. Venusaur was up next. I sent out Jet, and killed it with peck. Then, he sent out my only real weakness in this battle. Charizard. I switched between scythe and boulder, having them revive one another until flamethrower was out. I then used rock throw and took him out in a few shots. Blastoise, i started with Pinecone and used explosion, weakening him. I then sent out Philips and finished him. Snorlax was the final one. I paralyzed him with thunder wave, then revived Pinecone. I sent him out and he exploded.

                                        Johto, is done! next up, Hoenn.. Or however you spell it.


                                        My Final Team...


                                        Boulder/Steelix

                                        Level 60

                                        -Iron Tail
                                        -Dragon Breath
                                        -Crunch
                                        -Rock Throw

                                        Steelix was easily the MVP on this team. He was useful throughout the entire game. I was planning on giving him earthquake, but I'm glad i didn't. I probably would've gotten rid of rock throw, and that would've made killing fire types harder. Gonna miss him on gen three..



                                        Scythe/Scizor

                                        Level 58

                                        -Quick Attack
                                        -Metal Claw
                                        -Slash
                                        -Swords Dance

                                        The second best on this team. In the begging, i was about to ditch him. I'm so glad that i didn't. It wasn't completely smart of me to not put any fighting moves on him, but it worked out in the end. Not sure if he pops up in the next one. But if he does, he'll be on my team for sure...


                                        Jet/Skarmory

                                        Level 56

                                        -Peck
                                        -Steel Wing
                                        -Swift
                                        -Fly

                                        I didn't think that he would stick in my team, or be useful at all. But in the E4 fights, he helped a lot. And i needed to fight them a few times so i could afford more revives, which helped me with red extremely. Hope i can see him again...



                                        Philips/Magneton

                                        Level 58

                                        -Tri Attack
                                        -Thunder Shock
                                        -Thunder Wave
                                        -Zap Cannon

                                        He.. Well, it helped throughout the entire game. Especially during the E4, like most of my pokes. Looking forward to the 4th Gen so i can use his evolution...



                                        Pinecon/Forretress

                                        Level 55

                                        -Spike
                                        -Rapid Spin
                                        -Explosion
                                        -Take Down

                                        He was actually the worst on my team. I could barely kill anything with him. He was most useful in the red fight, where he exploded and killed snorlax and crippled blastoise. If he's in the next few games, i might get him for his explosiveness...


                                        After doing some research, i decided that i will play ruby, for mawile. Steel types are scarce in all the games, so i need all the help i can find. I will post an update when.. when i feel like it i guess..
                                        I laughed so much when you said "He was most useful in the Red fight, where he exploded and killed Snorlax"

                                        Anyway... Toy Story 3 went on longer than I expected so I'll have to update some time tomorrow with my first proper update

                                        EDIT: What's the rules for Egg trading?
                                        How many steel type eggs am I allowed to trade over, Steel types are pretty hard to catch so I'd rather trade a couple over at the start.

                                        Another Edit : Just looked at the start of the thread, I'm assuming EJ's HG/SS monotype challenge rules still apply so I'll trade over some eggs tomorrow when I properly start my challenge.

                                            West, on a plane bound west
                                            I see her stretching out below
                                            Land, blessed mother land
                                            The place where I was born

                                            Scars, she’s got her scars
                                            Sometimes it starts to worry me
                                            Cause lose, I don’t want to lose
                                            Sight of who we are

                                            From the mountains high
                                            To the wave-crashed coast
                                            There’s a way to find
                                            Better days I know

                                            It’s been a long hard ride
                                            Got a ways to go
                                            This is still the place
                                            That we all call home

                                                  West, on a plane bound west
                                                  I see her stretching out below
                                                  Land, blessed mother land
                                                  The place where I was born

                                                  Scars, she’s got her scars
                                                  Sometimes it starts to worry me
                                                  Cause lose, I don’t want to lose
                                                  Sight of who we are

                                                  From the mountains high
                                                  To the wave-crashed coast
                                                  There’s a way to find
                                                  Better days I know

                                                  It’s been a long hard ride
                                                  Got a ways to go
                                                  This is still the place
                                                  That we all call home
