Now it's time for my next USC to continue in Unova with Palin the Garafarig!

Update #1 on Black.

Name: Gerry
Starter: Girafarig
  • Made Girafarig my starter in place of Snivy, who shares a Bug weakness, and named him Palin (short for Palindrome, ofc). Shiny FTW.
  • The first gym was real easy, although being weak to Dark is annoying.
  • The second gym was easy as well, though I did have a scary moment when Watchog used Crunch and almost killed Palin.
  • I am saved in Pinwheel Forest, about to crush Team Plasma.
Screens:
Spoiler:

Yeah, the beginning of this game is a bit boring, as an FE Pokemon destroys everything stat wise.
LOL, I just noticed that Palin's HP bar against Lenora is 9/69, which is...a palindrome! LOL.

Team Gerry:

Palin the Naive Girafarig, ♂ - L22 @ Chesto Berry
Ability: Early Bird
Moves: Stomp, Rock Smash, Psybeam, Work Up

HM Slaves:

Patrat - Cut

              Doom Shroom
              Female/Quiet

              Lv 17
              Ability: Effect Spore
              Moveset: Leech Seed, Mega Drain, Stun Spore, and Tackle

              Made Shroomish my starter in place of Bulbasaur, who is also a grass type. I named her Doom Shroom because she's a BO$$. The first gym was easy. I two shotted Onix with Absorb so that was that. I'm now currently outside Mt.Moon getting ready to venture inside.

                I'm gonna try this. =) I'll be using Ekans/Arbok in Pokemon Red.

                I actually plan on doing this challenged with as many Poison-types as possible later.
                Here we go.

                      I started a solo run with Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir in HG without posting it on here so I'll just post what I've done so far.
                      Spoiler:
                      -Chikorita was my starter and I hacked in a Lvl. 6 Ralts since that's when it learns Confusion.
                      -Did the Mr. Pokemon stuffs.
                      -After I beat my rival the first time, I went to Violet City.
                      -Sprout Tower thing was easy with my Ralts.
                      -Falkner got destroyed by +6 evasion Ralts. Double Team FTW.
                      -Double Team is my most useful move as it saved me from being OHKO'd by Bugsy's Scyther.
                      -Bugsy was defeated easily after Scyther was taken care of.
                      -Rival Devyonn was destroyed after a tough battle. Luna's(Kirlia's) Quiet nature doesn't help the Speed.
                      -Ilex Forest was quick with two Repels after getting Cut.
                      -Got CUT, my Oddish who knows Cut.
                      -Met Ethan at the Day-Care.
                      -Defeated all the trainers I could before fighting Whitney.
                      -Got to Level 6 of Voltorb Flip before losing... So hard...
                      -The gym was relatively easy. Whitney was annoying. I got +6 evasion, Sp. Atk., and Sp. Def. when Clefairy used Metronome which turned into Power Swap. I had to build up the Sp. Atk. again. Miltank was, however, easy.
                      -Ecruteak, saved the strong Kimono Girl who didn't want to battle.
                      -Ecruteak, met Eusine and Morty.
                      -Didn't expect the battle with Devyonn in the Burned Tower. However, I won after two lucky hits with Confusion. Luna's stats: +6 evasion, Sp. Atk., Sp. Def. -6 Accuracy
                      -Just beat the first trainer in the gym and Luna evolved!

                        I'm finally getting back to doing that Poliwag → Poliwrath solo on Blue.

                        Restarting it though because I didn't like the names

                        Update #1:
                        -Named myself Green, rival Grey.
                        -Picked Poliwag as starter (in place of Squirtle) and named him Blue.
                        -Battled Grey and lost.
                        -Trained Blue up a bit, battled Grey again and just managed to win.
                        -Went through Viridian forest.
                        -Reached Pewter city and beat Brock easily with a lucky critical hit to Onix.

                          Update #4 on Black.
                          • The Elite Four weren't very hard, although I did need to use a Max Potion against Caitlin and Grimsley.
                          • N was pretty easy, only used 1 Max Potion.
                          • Ghetsis required 2 Max Potions because of Hydregion, but Palin still was a boss.
                          • Postgame is up next. To level 100 we go!

                                  I beat the game! This means I beat Red.
                                  -I beat the E4 easily, switching Magical Leaf with Focus Blast on Karen.
                                  -Credits rolled...
                                  -Beat the eight Kanto gyms and explored the whole area.
                                  -Red was a pain! I lost like 10 times before getting a good enough strategy to beat him. Here is a play-by-play account:
                                  Spoiler:
                                  Pikachu: Right out of the ball, he used a Volt Tackle. Luna had 20 HP left and used Psychic. Pikachu fainted.
                                  Snorlax: Max Potion before he used Blizzard. I used Hypnosis and missed. Strangely, he used Blizzard again. Max Potion. Crunch. Max Potion. Crunch. I took a risk and used Hypnosis. It worked and I used a Max Potion. Then I used one Calm Mind before finishing it off with a Focus Blast.
                                  Lapras: I used Calm Mind and Lapras used Body Slam. I got paralyzed but Synchronize kicked in and we were both paralyzed. I was able to use another Calm Mind. Body Slam. Full Restore. Lapras couldn't move. Calm Mind. Lapras couldn't move. Focus Blast OHKO.
                                  Charizard: Flare Blitz right out of the box again! Psychic kill. Luna had 2 HP after Hail kicked in.
                                  Venusaur: First thing I did, Max Potion. Venusaur used something that did around 10 damage. I didn't see because I was excited. I could actually win! Psychic OHKO.
                                  Blastoise: Psychic FTW!

                                    I have tried posting this like 8 times now!!!!!!
                                    I cleared Ruby and LeafGreen with my Blaziken(Fury)
                                    In Leaf Green i had some problems because torchic wouldnt evolve because i didnt have the national dex. I finally found the script needed for it and put it in game. After recieving the national Dex i had no problems until i reached the elite four. The game script read it as me already beating them once because i had the national Dex so i had to get the ruby and sapphire from the islands and beat the rockets there before continuing on to the elite four. I could easily get to lance but his gyrados demoslished me every time. i eventually got enough XP and reached lv. 95 and then used the 5 rare candies i had found to get to 100.
                                    Ill be starting heartgold sometime in the future, just not sure when cause im currently trying to organize a team for the international tournament on my hard copy of white.

                                      I've done this a few times, and I would say that it's much, much harder to raise a team of Pokemon than to use just one. In fact, the way that I usually raise a team is by using just one Pokemon and exp.sharing the rest. Anyone else feel this way?

                                        I always wanted to do a solo run.

                                        Pokemon: Shinx/Luxio/Luxray

                                        I hope I have fun with my first solo-run.

                                          I'd like to do an Ultimate Solo Run with my Golduck. I'll probably be using Fire Red, Silver, Ruby, Diamond and Black. I'll start playing right away so I can get to updating soon.

                                          Yeah, it's much easier to complete the games with one Pokémon, but I like the idea of just using one. I usually only Exp. share Pokémon that get added to the team at a low level.
