      Can you say two in a row?

      I beat gold with scyther today

      that's my third solo challenge beaten, so I decided to give a review on each one and side notes

      Nidoqueen was my first solo challenge, and it was on red.It took a few tries, but at level 70-80 it was kind of easy. Difficulty was 5/10

      Octillery was a pokemon I had never used before, but when it came up i tried it and it was a beast. Once it got to the 80s it could OHKO anything in its path. Difficulty 4/10

      Scyther was a hard one. It had trouble with whitney, the first time ever i had trouble with her. Bruno's onix was hard and annoying, but a few swords dances it OHKO d it.
      Difficulty was 8/10

        Ultimate Solo Challenge Update #12 with Weedle

        Johto seems to be moving along MUCH faster than Kanto.

        -I used X items to get through Jasmine.
        -Went back to Mahogany Town, and beat Red Gyarados by running away from it (lol).
        -Beat the Team Rocket hideout, Lance's Dragonite was really helpful to be on a team with.
        -Beat Pryce with pretty much no trouble.
        -Saved the Radio Tower (why were there so many TR guys there anyway? That took me forever, especially the first TR Executive with his Weezing and 5 Koffings).
        -Beat Clair after a few tries using X items.
        -Went and did the stuff in the Dragon's Den.
        -Went and got the Master Ball
        -Now I'm at the Kimono Girls, which is one of the most challenging parts of this somehow. I usually get through Umbreon with almost no health, and Espeon is both faster than me and it can OHKO me. Once I get through that I should be good for a little while. I forgot a picture with Jasmine so I took it right after the battle instead.

        Pictures from this update:
        Jasmine: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn205/S_K_F/1208111214a_263876.jpg
        Pryce: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn205/S_K_F/1208111346a_291350.jpg
        Clair: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn205/S_K_F/1208111346a_291350.jpg

              Yep, HM slaves are okay.

              Also guys, I'm at my house and not up at campus for the holiday season, and my internet is pathetic. I won't be able to update til the new year. Really sorry bout that. But congrats to SuperKirbyFan for that incredible Weedle victory.

                    I'd like to sign up for an Ultimate Solo Challenge with Umbreon.
                    Game Name: Umbra
                    Username: Facelift

                    I already beat Sapphire, and I'm moving on to Fire Red.
                    s1080.photobucket.com/albums/j338/Facelifter2/

                    FR UPDATE:
                    After hacking in Umbreon, I did the usual routine, and battled Green. After beatin his wimpy charmander, I beat him yet again by the E4 entrance, this time with a LV9 Umbreon against his LV9 Charmander and Pidgey. Needless to say, it was very easy.

                          YAY!
                          I beat Kanto!
                          Spoiler:


                          So, since I left off at beating Green, I'll continue
                          from there:


                          I trained up to lvl 16 and took on Brock. After
                          that, I went through Mount Moon and all, and then I found Misty. I pwnzed her,
                          especially Starmie, since it's vulnerable to Dark moves. Basically,
                          I spammed pursuit. After that, I headed up the Nugget Bridge
                          after being challenged by (and pwning) Green.


                          I defeated the rocket and headed to Bill's
                          house.


                          Turning him back human, I then went to the S.S.
                          Something (forgot the name). I trained and got HM1. I found myself in
                          need of a slave. So I got Meowth and defeated Lt. Surge. I headed on
                          to Celadon, and busted Rocket's operation, beat Giovanni, and got the Silph
                          Scope. I went to the Lavender Tower and beat Green again, and fought my way to
                          the top. I saved Mr. Fuji and got the Pokeflute.


                          After going back and beating Erika, I got
                          the Tea. I beat Koga, and went to Saffron, clearing out
                          Rockets, Green, and Giovanni. I got the Master Ball, but threw it away.



                          I headed to Cinnabar and beat Blaine. After that, I
                          did the Islands thing and went to Viridian. Beating Giovanni, I finally
                          went to Victory Road.


                          Victory Road was a lame excuse of a trial, and I
                          got out. Depositing my slaves (Meowth, Lapras, and Spearrow), I bought
                          96 full restores and pwned the league.


                          Lorelei- 4/10 difficulty since she spammed Full
                          Restore


                          Bruno- 6/10 difficulty since half his pokemon
                          were fighting type


                          Agatha was so easy I laughed.


                          Lance's Dragonite was the only one that gave me trouble





                          Finally, the time came for me to defeat
                          Green.


                          Pidgeot-Easy


                          Rhydon-Easy


                          Exeggcutor-Sleep powder spam


                          Charizard-Damn his Fire Blast


                          Gyarados- Easy but was a Thrash spammer


                          Alakazam-Easy

                            Pokémon FireRed: Azumarill Solo Run
                            Chapter 2: Viridian Forest, Poisoned Marill, Thanks to Weedle


                            Ah, it's been a long time since I had a challenge. Anyway, I have no internet connection so I might as well play this. So, I last saved in Pallet Town and off to Route 1 I go. Firstly, I got a Town Map. Then, I found a Rattata and defeated it with some Tackles. I decided to grind for a while and due to that, Marill's now level 7. Then, I arrived in Viridian and healed Marill. Now that I dealed with that old guy and got this useless Teachy TV, I arrived in Viridian Forest. I grinded and while grinding, I refuse to fight against Weedle. But, I had to fight against a trainer who had a Weedle and I was poisoned. Then, Marill fainted and did the Pokémon Center blah blahs. And I learned my lesson. Always buy potions, antidotes or whatever when travelling. Bought 3 potions and 7 antidotes and I will continue my journey again blah blah. So I grinded but, I didn't noticed that Marill was at level 8 lol. Then I have to fight this trainer with a Weedle who is at level 9 but I managed to defeat him. Made it to Pewter and found a Jigglypuff.
                            Didn't make me that sleepy. Anyway, I thought of battling Brock but...I guess I'll have to grind for a while. So, I grinded and, the end.

                                So I've just recently attempted to download VBA and all the necessary ROMs under my cousin's discretion and, amidst that little fiasco, I asked him what would be the best way to get acquainted with Pokémon on a very general scale. I told him I wanted an extreme challenge (just because of my competitive nature) and he led me here.

                                SO HERE I AM.

                                I'm going to try and make my way through an ultimate with Magikarp--my cousin's to blame.

                                Oh, and I've never actually owned a Pokémon game of my own. No background knowledge, no tactics... what could possibly go wrong?



                                80s out.

                                EDITx2:

                                Spoiler:
                                For this run, I'm going to list everything that sucks in order of play-through:

                                --Grinding a Karp to Lv. 15 to learn Tackle on Route 1
                                --Brock. ಠ_ಠ
                                --More grinding to avoid becoming Gary-sushi @ Cerulean Bridge
                                --THE "GRASS LASS".



                                To be continued...

                                  I feel like trying to go through this with a Kangskhan. I got the time

                                  ^Magikarp huh, going to be impossible the first some levels. Doing something with Weedle or Caterpie is better as they at least have moves to use :3

                                    Will be starting an ultimate solo with Venusaur, playing in the order of:
                                    FireRed->Crystal->Emerald->Diamond->White!
                                    I'll get started right away.

                                          MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF PC!!!


                                          And now...

                                          Update #2 on LeafGreen.

                                          I have now beaten all the gyms and am saved in Victory Road. Koga beat me twice with Toxic+Minimize/Smokescreen hax, but I eventually beat him. The rest were easy with all my coverage moves.

                                          I bought Ice Beam from the Game Corner and grabbed Thunder from the Power Plant before I faced Potter on Route 22, so those are the only moves changes from the last update (replaced Water Pulse and Shock Wave, both of which were used a bunch).

                                          Here's another screenshot dump, starting with Erika.

                                              Welp, I've started a Fire Red solo challenge with a Shellder. Progress pics plz?

                                              I'm currently stuck at Lt.Surge, grinding. But, WHILE grinding, I found this special surprise!

                                              Caught 'im and named 'im Skree, then boxed regretfully
