    Well, I decided to go to Ruby before Soul Silver since I wanted to get Gen III over and done with. Which it now is Trixie the Mawile and I destroyed everything in our path. cbf putting up all the screenies, but I will add a few:




    I got kind of bored of just battling, so decided to enter some contests. Managed to get to Hyper Rank in Cool, Cute, Tough and Smart. The moveset for those was slightly different: Return, Facade, Crunch and Rock Tomb. However, my conditions weren't high enough to get me wins in Master Rank ;( the other ribbons were for Hall of Fame and Effort Ribbon. I'll start Soul Silver shortly.

      I have decided to change my group of hack solos so that I am playing through 4 386 challenges in the order of Emerald 386->Sapphire386->Firered386->Firered Omega. I will be using Abra/Kadabra/Alakazam.

      More updates on the Gold leg of my Blastoise Ultimate Solo Challenge:

      -Climbed the Lighthouse, then went to Cianwood and got the Secretpotion
      -Defeated Chuck and got Fly (and caught a Hoothoot to use with it)
      -Cured Amphy in Olivine, then defeated Jasmine
      -Caught the Red Gyarados
      -Removed Team Rocket from Mahogany Town and defeated Pryce
      -Cleared Team Rocket out of the Radio Tower in Goldenrod
      -Passed through Ice Path and beat Clair for my eighth gym badge
      -Reached Victory Road and defeated my rival again

      The Elite Four:

      -Will: Mostly used Bite, with Ice Punch on the first Xatu
      -Koga: Surf for four Pokemon, Ice Punch for Crobat
      -Bruno: Mixture of Surf, Ice Punch, and Headbutt
      -Karen: Mixture of Surf, Ice Punch, Bite, and Headbutt. Hurt myself in confusion for four straight turns against Umbreon, but the battle still turned out okay.
      -Lance: Don't remember what I used for Gyarados, but Ice Punch for the dragons and Surf for the others. Easy enough.

      The Team:

      BLASTER (Blastoise) lvl. 62
      -Surf
      -Ice Punch
      -Bite
      -Headbutt

      Totodile lvl. 9 (Cut)
      Togepi lvl. 5 (Flash)
      Sudowoodo lvl. 20 (Strength)
      Hoothoot lvl. 12 (Fly)
      Gyarados lvl. 30

      Next up: Kanto!


      Update: I ended up speeding through Kanto without recording the details as I went along, so I don't have a precise log for that part. Nothing unusual happened, and no one else joined my team (I opted to KO Snorlax instead). Kanto was a breeze. I don't really know why there's a 20-level jump between Blue and Red, but it all worked out anyway.

      The battle with Red was slightly more challenging than the rest of the post-Elite Four game. Blaster KOed Pikachu with a single Surf, then used Ice Punch for Venusaur, a lot of Headbutts for Snorlax, Bite for Espeon and the opposing Blastoise, and Surf for Charizard to finish things off.

      Final Stats (only bothering to list Blastoise here, everyone else was the same as before):

      BLASTER (Blastoise) lvl. 78
      -Surf
      -Bite
      -Ice Punch
      -Headbutt


      Reflections: I love Blastoise. I've never played through Gold with him before (I added one to my original Gold team after beating Red for the first time), but it was a blast. The whole thing was pretty easy, but that's the nature of a lot of solo runs (with some exceptions), once you get a decent moveset.

      Coming up next: Ruby! It's probably my least favorite region, but hopefully it'll be fun.

        Another update on the Zangoose Solo run:
        -Caught the two Farfetch'd and got HM01
        -Navigated through Ilex Forest
        -Arrived in Goldenrod
        -Got the Radio Card and bike
        -Took on Whitney and easily won with Slash for the Plain badge (Funny yet aggravating story: I actually had to battle her three times, but not due to losses. The emulator I'm using glitched up on the next trainer battle I entered and I forgot to save, then it glitched up again later when I reached Ecruteak and erased my data to when I last opened it. I was sooooooo pissed.)
        -Traveled to that annoying tree/Sudowoodo and beat it
        -Arrived in Ecruteak City
        -Saved the Kimono girl
        -Battled GingerTits in the Burned Tower
        -Found the legendary dogs/cats/whatever-they-are
        -Entered Morty's Gym and beat him using Pursuit for the Fog badge
        -Got HM04
        -Traveled to Olivine
        -Climbed the lighthouse and met Jasmine
        -Surfed to Cianwood
        -Battled Eusine after seeing Suicune (anyone else notice the similarity in names? I just did today... LOL)
        -Entered Chuck's Gym and beat him with a Slash spam (hypnosis missing = lucky for me) to get his badge
        -Got HM02
        -Grabbed the SecretPotion
        -Flew back to Olivine, delivered the potion, and got Jasmine back in the kitchen Gym
        -Entered her Gym (armed with Parylz Heals) and beat her with a Swords Dance/Slash combo on the second try for the Mineral badge

        And that's it for now. Next update will probably be tomorrow, and I hope to have taken care of the Elite Four by then.

            Another update on my USC with Katana the Zangoose:
            -Flew back to Ecruteak and surfed to Mahogany
            -Traveled to the Lake of Rage and defeated the red Gyarados
            -Met Lance and headed back to Mahogany
            -Infiltrated the Rocket base
            -Defeated the admins and took out the generator
            -Entered Pryce's Gym
            -Battled him and won with a Swords Dance/Slash combo (I'm starting to really appreciate Swords Dance) and got the Glacier badge
            -Traversed Ice Cave and arrived in Blackthorn
            -Took on Clair's Gym and beat her with the same strategy from Pryce's battle
            -Entered the Dragon's Den and passed the elder's test
            -Received the Rising badge
            -Met with Elm and got the Master Ball
            -Sweeped through the five Kimono girls
            -Flew to the Whirl Islands and got to the bottom
            -Defeated Lugia for EXP
            -Flew back to New Bark Town and headed east
            -Passed through Tohjo Falls
            -Traveled to the entrance to Victory Road
            -Navigated through it until GingerTits stopped me
            -Battled and destroyed his team without using Swords Dance
            -Entered Indigo Plateau and began my challenge
            -Will: X-Scissor spam
            -Koga: Took out Ariados, then used Swords Dance while Foretress was out, then sweeped the rest of his team
            -Bruno: Three Swords Dances, then easy sweeping with Slash (Close Combat on Onix)
            -Karen: See above (other than Gengar, who was a pain; I had to use X-Scissor and it barely survived, she healed, then another two X-Scissors)
            -Lance: Three Swords Dances while Gyarados was out, then sweeped with Slash

            So now all that's left is Kanto and Red. I'll probably just have all of that in one giant update sometime late tonight/tomorrow.

            I started my Blastoise solo run on Ruby last night, but never got around to posting about it. So, here it goes:

            -Chose Treecko as my starter (HMs, plus, not sure how the game would respond if I hacked Squirtle in as my starter and the game thought I had a Pokedex of zero)
            -Did the beginning game stuff, then hacked a Squirtle into Route 101 and caught it (BLASTER is back!)
            -Went to Petalburg City, beating trainers along the way, and accompanied Wally as he caught his first Pokemon
            -Passed through Petalburg Woods, taking care of a small Team Magma problem
            -Easily won my first badge in Rustboro. Squirtle evolved into Wartortle here
            -Got the goods back for the Devon guy and got the PokeNav
            -Beat Brawly and delivered the letter to Steven
            -Took care of Team Magma in Slateport
            -Beat my rival again on the way to Mauville
            -Beat the gym leader in Mauville (and the trainers on the surrounding routes)
            -Blaster evolved into Blastoise
            -Traveled to Fallarbor Town
            -Beat Team Magma people in Meteor Falls and Mt. Chimney
            -Got my fourth and fifth gym badges
            -Beat Team Magma at the Weather Institute and got Castform
            -Beat Winona for my sixth gym badge
            -Cleared the Team Magma Hideout

            The team:

            BLASTER the Brave Blastoise (too lazy to try to get a different nature) lvl. 56
            -Surf
            -Ice Beam
            -Bite
            -Protect

            Grovyle lvl. 17 (Cut, Rock Smash, Flash, Strength) (levels up way too much in double battles)

            Castform lvl. 25

            Wingull lvl. 3 (Fly)

              Update number four on the Johto portion of the USC, and I'm already done!
              -Sailed to Kanto on the ship
              -Arrived in Vermillion and beat Lt. Surge immediately
              -Went to Saffron City and took on Sabrina, beating her all too easily
              -Walked to Celadon, beat Erika just as easily
              -Biked to Fuchsia and battled Janine, winning just like all the other Gyms so far
              -Flew back to Saffron, then went north to Cerulean
              -Went to the Power Plant and found out about the missing part
              -Got the part back from the Engrish speaking Rocket
              -Katana reached level 100 already, with no help from Rare Candies this time, either
              -Found Misty
              -Took Misty down just like every other leader
              -Returned the missing part
              -Went to Lavender and got the Radio upgrade card
              -Woke up the Snorlax in front of Diglett's Cave
              -Traveled to Pewter and battled Brock, taking him down with ease
              -Ran down to Viridian, then Pallet, then surfed to the remains of Cinnabar
              -Headed to the Seafoam Islands and entered Blaine's makeshift Gym
              -Beat Blaine, though Magcargo's Flame Body pissed me off
              -Flew back to Viridian
              -Took on Blue and kicked his ass
              -Got HM08
              -Went to Mt. Silver and climbed to the top
              -Took on Red, who was the first and only challenge of the second half of the game
              -Beat his Pikachu easily, but I couldn't pull off a Swords Dance until Charizard came out, which was after I beat down both Blastoise and Venasaur
              -After the Swords Dance, everything was a piece of cake

              So with the Champion title mine and with Red defeated, I now move on to Hoenn.

                Well I started my hacks solo today with Emerald386, and made a lot of progress in about 2 hours, getting 6 gym badges. I am missing a few images, but thats because my laptop kept choosing to crash windows explorer D:<

                Progress:
                Spoiler:
                -Lost the image of defeating may by spamming Return.
                -Lost the image of defeating the the Aqua grunt for the first time by OHKO Return Crit.

                -OHKO all with Confusion

                -Defeating Team Aqua for the second time with Confusion.

                -OHKOing all her mons with Psybeam.

                -OHKO all with Psybeam.

                -The Carvanha kept using Bite, and Recover saved me here.

                -OHKOing her again with Psybeam.

                -2HKO with Psybeam.

                -Gawd, paralysis gets annoying, but other than that, Psybeam won this.

                -Easy, but lost pic of beating the girl.

                -Annoying with Magnemite.

                -Very easy with Psychic.

                -Also very easy with Psychic.

                The only damage was from Linoones Facade, whic was caused by a miss from Psychic, but other than that, easy.
                -Lost image of defeating TV presenters.

                -Easy with Psychic and Shock Wave.

                -OHKO's on Blaziken and Pelipper. Ludicolo took two shots.

                -Annoying Paralysis.

                -Psychic and Shock Wave were helpful here.

                  I Finished the challenge.

                  Story:

                  Fooze and Belte made their way to Celestic town after beating Crasher Wake and Stopped team Galactic from blowing the town up.
                  They then defeated the leader of team galactic and headed to Canalave city where together they helped riley in Iron Island and Defeated Byron for their 6th Gym badge.
                  Soon the duo learnt that Team galactic was stealing the lake trio. Fooze and Belte defeated two comanders before enduring mt Coronet and making their way to snowpoint city. They defeated Candice and witnessed Jupiter Beat their Rival Terrale.
                  They headed to the Galactic Headquarters and rid Veilstone city of Team Galactic and freeing the lake trio. Fooze later headed to mt Coronet again but this time scaled it to the top and went into the distortion world and defeated Cyrus for the final time. He caught the mighty Giratina and left for sunnyshore city. Once there Fooze and Belte encouraged Volkner to battle with them and they defeated him earning the final gym badge. Fooze surfed over to victory road and navigated his way to the elite four H.Q.
                  Him and Belte the Bronzong defeated all four members and also defeated the Sinnoh champion Cynthia, gaining the title of Sinnoh Champion.

                  -Surf
                  -Ice Beam
                  -Bite

                    Well I have finished the Emerald386 part of my challenge, which was relatively easy excluding Sidney.

                    Progress:
                    Spoiler:
                    -Started off from Fortree City, did the mt pyre and went for team magma

                    -Defeated Maxie easily

                    -The annoyance of team bases. But an easy battle at the end

                    -Pretty easy, with Shadow Ball dominating this gym

                    -Took out Maxie then Tabitha to make this much easier

                    -OHKO's galore

                    -Evil Kingdra and his evasiveness and his 1x to Shock Wave

                    -His pokemon were tougher than I thought

                    -HARDEST. BATTLE. EVER. I never knew Calm mind was soooooo useful. Especially with his insane defensiveness

                    -Same with the Calm Mind techniques, leaving Phoebe wrecked from OHKO's

                    -Pretty easy, 6 Calm Minds, 6 dead pokemon.

                    -OHKO Psychics against Dragons? Who knew?

                    -Easy with the 6 Calm Minds.

                    -WELCOME TO THE HALL OF FAME.

                    -Easy. Even against 6 level 100's, 6 Calm Minds meant insta-kills for all except Metagross, who, luckily for me, missed with Meteor Mash, leaving him open for another Super-charged Shock Wave.

                      Oh look! A picture of me and Champ as League Champions!
                      Yup, I finally managed to beat up Bruno, Karen, and Lance. I decided to take a quick picture of my success on my phone as proof. Champ finished the first League challenge at level 66; his moves are Waterfall, Ice Fang, Crunch, and Earthquake.
                      I also made my way over to Kanto via the boat, where I then beat up Lt. Surge, Sabrina, Erika, and Janine. Now I'm on the path to Lavendar Town.

                        Blastoise Solo Challenge Segment 4: Platinum

                        Here's what I've accomplished so far:

                        -Chose Turtwig as my starter and completed the beginning of the game stuff
                        -Finally managed to hack a Squirtle into one of the routes after a lot of frustrating failed attempts (when I finally caught said Squirtle, I nicknamed it BLASTER, like usual)
                        -Defeated my rival and made my way to Oreburgh City
                        -Blaster evolved into Wartortle
                        -Defeated Roark for gym badge #1

                        The team:

                        BLASTER the Modest Wartortle, lvl. 17
                        -Water Gun
                        -Bubble
                        -Tackle
                        -Bite

                        Turtwig lvl. 9

                          Sadly I'm gonna have to quit my ultimate solo with Nidoran some pathetic ass snuck into my house and stole my DS along with some others things, so pretty much now I can't play the Johto or Sinnoh parts of the solo.

                          P.S. I was extremely lucky that my game wasn't in the DS seen as it has 3 boxes of chained shinys and a few boxes of lvl 100's(including all my Metagross's and Kabutop's from runs I've done here.)

                              Firstly, 11wildy, this threat barely gets updated, possibly due to Myrrhman being busy, i dont know, but it isnt updated very often.

                              Now for Update1 of Sapphire386!
                              I started around an hour ago, and due to Sapphire386 running almost twice as fast as Emerald386, I have made progress much faster, even with staying up so late with it almost being 5am here. I will simply post images today, due to tiredness, and will not post alakazams stats, as i forgot to upload them.

                              Progress:

                                Damn, that sucks. I hope that bastard gets caught soon. If my DS got stolen, I'd flip. Thankfully all of my solo challenges are on my computer (I use ROMs because I don't wanna delete my other game files lol) so unless my computer gets taken, they're safe. Was it a DSi, DS Lite, or just an old DS, if I may ask?

                                Anyways, here's the first update on my Platinum leg.
                                -Got Zangoose from Rowan
                                -Beat the rival, who I named Barry (I know it's a stock name, but anything other than the Barry Dance doesn't sound right; you know what I'm talking about)
                                -Got a PokéDex
                                -Ran to Jubilife and delivered the parcel to Barry

                                -Beat Barry again
                                -Traveled to Oreburg
                                -Met Roark and followed him back to the Gym
                                -Beat Roark with a Swords Dance/Fury Cutter spam combo
                                -Went back to Jubilife and beat down the Galactic weirdos
                                -Walked to Floaroma Town
                                -Went to the Valley Windworks and beat the Galactic freak
                                -Beat his cohorts and got the key
                                -Entered the Windworks and beat Mars
                                -Journeyed up to Eterna City

                                -Took down Jupiter with ease
                                -Got a bike
                                -Rode down to Oreburg

                                  DS lite, Seen as it has the best Flash card compatibility which is what I use to play Black. Anyway he wasn't very careful with how he stole stuff and we will probably be able to catch him soon enough. I would have been so much more pissed if Platinum had of been in my DS cause as I said that has pretty much 5-6yrs worth of pokemon on it(I like keeping all my pokemon in one game usually). I think our insurance covers the DS though so I might get a new one soon :D.

                                  P.S. I would have lol'ed if he took my old DS seen as the top screens completely screwed and it's near impossible to do anything with it.

                                      Crystal Update #4.

                                      Finished Johto part of Crystal!

                                      Started in Mahogony Town.

                                      Spoiler:
                                      - Beat Lake of Rage and TR Hideout. Taught Palin Hidden Power (Steel), and he learned Crunch as well.


                                      Hidden Power (Steel) FTW lol. Not that it was needed.


                                      Palin is unstoppable right now.


                                      Accidentally used Psybeam on Houndour, then Return for 3 OHKOs.


                                      Psybeam worked, and so did Return for Kingdra.


                                      Umm....

                                      - Taught Palin Earthquake.
                                      - Indigo Plateau time!


                                      5 Cruch OHKOs.


                                      4 Psybeam OHKOs and a 2HKO with Earthquake on Forretress (used Spikes lol).


                                      4 Psybeam OHKOs and Earthquake for Onix. Stupid Mach Punch...


                                      2 Returns, 2 Earthquakes, and a Psybeam, all OHKOs.


                                      Way too easy. Return OHKOed Gyrados (crit), Charizard, and all three Dragonites. 2 Psybeams for Aerodactyl.


                                      Yay! Hall of Fame, baby!

                                      Halfway done. Kanto and Red are up next!
