      Well, I finally bothered to update my challenge. I want to point out that it's not because I'm giving up on the challenge (I'm not), but because of EV training. I try to do it at the start of each game, and EV training is long and boring, so I often end up going really really slow at the start of a game. With that out of the way...

      Ultimate Solo Challenge Update #16 with Weedle

      When I last updated, I had just gotten to the 7th gym leader in Sapphire. Before fighting them, I had to go and beat pretty much all the trainers between Mossdeep and Pacifidlog (and some after that) in order to be strong enough. When I did fight them, I used this strategy: I went in with a Magikarp and my Weedle (You have to bring 2 guys). Then, I used Poison Sting on Lunatone (and reset until it poisoned him) and Magikarp would usually get OHKO'ed. I would then Hyper Potion spam until Lunatone ran out of Psychics, and then just attack them.

      After beating that gym, I went to the Seafloor Cavern. Archie wasn't that hard to beat, but it was kind of annoying.

      Next I went to Sootopolis, and caught Kyogre with a Master Ball, and made him be an HM slave. I beat the gym, which was easy except for the leader's Milotic, who was really annoying (like most Milotics) thanks to Recover spam.

      Then I went to Victory Road, which was kind of annoying. There were multiple trainers I had to try multiple times or just skip, like the girl with the Leech Seeding Roselia, or the guy with the Muk who had Minimize and Acid Armor (LeafGreen all over again...) or the Lairon that I had to switch to using Struggle to beat.

      Next was the Elite 4. I did this multiple weeks ago, so I don't remember how most of it went. I do remember one funny part though, it was when I got to Drake's Salamence. Usually I'm so overleveled that even with no Speed EVs, I outspeed almost everything. So when Salamence outsped my Weedle, I said aloud to my cousin, "How is this Salamence outspeeding my Weedle?" I ended up having to use X Speed and get a critical hit to kill it.

      Then there was Steven. This battle I do remember, but I won't bother with how it went because I took a video of the battle. I'll put it at the bottom of this post, along with the screenshots I've been neglecting to post.

      And with that, I was done Gen 3. Platinum was up next.

      I decided to start with Piplup, as that would make my rival have a Grass starter, which is the easiest for Weedle to beat. The first part of the game was easy enough. I got up to Route 203, and then decided to EV train Weedle here. But, the only pokemon there that gives Special Defense EVs is Lotad, who you only fight by having Sapphire in the GBA slot of your DS. I hadn't realized for a while that you can't fight pokemon like that until after the league. So, I looked and the next wild guy (other than honey pokemon) that gives SDef is the Duskulls outside of Hearthome City. I decided to go really fast through the game to that point, and catch up on fighting trainers after EV training. After easily beating the first gym, I went north to Eterna Forest, fighting some of the trainers there. That's where I am now, with that lady who has a Chansey.

      I finally bothered to update my screenshots too. The reason I didn't before is because my phone's screen stopped working properly, and I used to use my phone for screenshots. Now I've been taking them with my DS.

      Here they are:

      Super Swablu Solo #1
      I started up Pokémon Ruby and called my character Sydian after the boss of this forum. I started going through the game until I finally got my Poké Balls. Once I had them, I hacked in a Swablu into the wild and caught it. I nicknamed Swablu "Challenger" because Swablu is the unofficial mascot of the challenge forum. I continued on playing Ruby, making my way to Petalburg City where I met Wally. After that I headed to and through Petalburg Woods, before eventually making it to Rustburo City.

      After a lot of training, I decided to challenge Roxanne. I knew this would be really hard because of Swablu's type disadvantage. I ended up using some X-Attacks to boost my power, and thanks to some luck with Sing, I managed to win. Happy with my victory, I went and rescued Peeko, got the Pokénav and headed off to Dewford Island.

      Straight off, I went and delivered the Letter to Steven so that I could get Steel Wing. I was glad that I got it because now Swablu stood a chance against rock types. I went to challenge the gym and because of my awesome type advantage, cleaned up pretty well.

      Super Swablu!

      Challenger (Swablu) Lv23.
      Moves: Peck, Fury Attack, Steel Wing, Sing.

        Super Swablu Solo #2
        I set sail to Slateport City and upon arrival, cleaned out Team Magma from the museum. After that dilemma, I headed north and visited the Trick House where I solved the puzzle and got a Rare Candy. I then ran into Brandon and managed to defeat him. I continued on the path until I reached Mauville City.

        At Mauville City, I saw Wally, who I battled and then beat. I then cleaned up all the trainers on the surrounding routes and got the Mack Bike! After all those jobs, I headed into the gym. This gym, just like Roxanne's was rather difficult, as Swablu is weak to electric types. With some luck with Sing, I managed to defeat Wattson and get the badge. I then continued my journey, first beating the Winstrate family and then eventually reaching Fallabour Town.

        I then went down to Meteor Falls before then going back to Mt. Chimney. At Mt. Chimney I went and defeated some members of Team Magma and also defeated Maxie. I then headed south and reached Lavaridge Town. I challenged the gym. After barely surviving Flannery's Torkoal's Overheat, I managed to win and get the badge. Brandon then gave me the Go-Goggles.

        Super Swablu!

        Challenger (Swablu) Lv40.
        Moves: Peck, Secret Power, Steel Wing, Ice Beam.

            I am cancelling my Wooper Solo-Run and doing it with Dratini instead. I will also evolve him when he does.
            I will start later. I will also still use the same games.

            Final Update (#3) on Black.

            • The postgame went by super fast.
            • After I got Excaliber to L95, I took on Morimoto and Cynthia and beat them both easily with Swords Dance power.
            • Then I faced the Elite Four again. The results were the same as the first time, although Sawk's Stone Edge came a little closer to KOing Excalibur.
            • Finally I battled Alder. Here's the video and play-by-play of the fight, such as it was:

              Hey guys, Myrrh here!

              School's out for the summer, so I'm going to have time to update this list now. However, there's almost 1000 posts since last update, so its going to take some time. But, I'll go as fast as I can, and sometime soon it will be updated!

                  ive only done one solo so far and that was with a super awesome heracross in soul silver. im really looking forward to having another solo (and level 100) pokemon under my belt. but i think this one will be A LOT harder.

                  pokemon: beautifly
                  game: sapphire

                  i chose mudkip as my starter to use as a slave and did the usual stuff at the beginning.
                  at first chance i caught a wurmple and luckily it evolved into a silicon.
                  the first gym was awful i tried it first when beautifly was lvl18 and was slaughtered in one hit from geodudes rock fall. after grinding up to lvl23 i tried again only to fall to nosepass. but as they say third time lucky and lucky i was, after breezing past geodude and ready for a struggle with nosepass but its attacks missed two times in a row and a couple of critical hits later i had one my first gym badge.

                  current location: dewford
                  pokemon: Alice the brave beautifly
                  lvl 24
                  tackle
                  mega drain

                      In recent news the only progress I've made in my challenge is updating my sig to have it in. I'm gonna spend some solid time today playing, though, hopefully I'll make some good progress.

                        It's really easy with a Pokemon with above average HP, Special Attack, and Speed, and REALLY high Attack. I beat Red in about 6 minutes, the only thing holding me back was Snorlax's and Lapras' high HP.

                        For my news, I may do Emerald later, if I feel like it.

                          Joining this challenge. Did a duo-person challenge a couple years ago, would like to try a solo challenge.
                          Going to do this challenge with: Houndour (Houndoom - will evolve.)
                          Game: Emerald.

                          Pictures soon.

                          Update 1:
                          Spoiler:
                          The game started well. Most of the beginning trainers had plant or bug pokemon so I had no problem making it to the first gym.
                          Now is the hard part. The first gym is the rock gym. Rock Tomb one shot KO's Skullfire (My Houndour). Going to have to do a lot of grinding here.
                          At least I'm getting the hard part out early.

                          Current Moveset:
                          Ember
                          Leer
                          Smog
                          Howl


                          Update 2:
                          Spoiler:

                          Finally beat the rock gym! Got a struck of luck as Nosepass' Rock Tomb missed twice. I beat the gym with Houndour at level 19.
                          Unfortunately I forgot that the next gym is a fighting gym - which is also super effective on houndour. Going to be another hard gym.


                          Update 3:
                          Spoiler:

                          Beat the fighting gym with Houndoom at level 26. Got kind of lucky again. Also beat the electric and fire gym with ease and am having no problems.
                          Current Statistics:
                          Houndoom: Skullfire
                          Moveset:
                          -Ember
                          -Bite
                          -Roar
                          -Smog

                          Level 38.

                          >Also got a Poonchya (sp?) for a mule.


                          CHALLENGE COMPLETED
                          I completed the elite 4 with a level 74 Houndoom solo. It was rather difficult. I forgot that the elite 4 had 2 trainers with water Pokemon - including the most powerful - Wallace. Some how I managed to do it though - I thought I would have to at least get maxed first! In total the elite 4 took ~30 max potions and 2 full restores.

                          Moveset for Skullfire:
                          Solar Beam
                          Flamethrower
                          Crunch
                          Sunny Day.

                          Any questions just ask. Also, can't post a picture because of the 15 posts rule.

                            School's out for the summer, so I'm going to have time to update this list now. However, there's almost 1000 posts since last update, so its going to take some time. But, I'll go as fast as I can, and sometime soon it will be updated!
                            Ooh, I've been waiting for this, the OP hasn't even updated to list my Weedle Solo yet. If u want I can help with it, i had surgery yesterday so ill be on the couch with my computer a lot. Also I had a funny thought today: The OP doesnt say anything about no legendaries.

                              • Phew, I don't know what I did exactly, but I do know I went to the Lighthouse. Jasmine didn't want to battle yet, so I went to Cianwood first.
                              • I hate surfing, but I managed to get to Cianwood without too much of a hassle.
                              • Chuck went down easily with Confusion.
                              • Directly after that I flew back to Olivine to defeat Jasmine.

                                Got lucky on Bugsy and easily swept through Whitney. Got held up on Morty because of Curse ripping out a vicious 1/4 of my hp each turn and being forced to use the 1/2 power Razor Leaf on all of his pokemon. Currently going through and whoopin' on all of the trainers along the road to try and beef up My now-fully-evolved Meganium

                                Super Swablu Solo #3
                                I headed back to Petalburg City and challenged my Dad. After another challenging battle, I managed to beat Norman and I got the Balance Badge. I then headed back to Mauville City and surfed east. I then travelled north until I reached the Weather Institute. Team Magma was there and I quickly got rid of them.

                                On my way to Fortree City, I encountered Brandon and swept his team. He gave my HM02 and left. I then got the Devon Scope and challenged Winona. With the super-effectiveness from Ice Beam, I managed to defeat her, winning the badge.

                                Super Swablu!

                                Challenger (Swablu) Lv52.
                                Moves: Aerial Ace, Return, Steel Wing, Ice Beam.

                                    I was gonna be productive and do my homework today, but we went to my grandma's house for what I thought would be a quick visit, and ended up staying until 8:30, and just got home around 10 minutes ago, so I made some pretty solid progress.
                                    I beat Morty, but I got pretty lucky. I was I think around level 40. Which is pretty sad that I had to get lucky to beat him but anyways screw curse. Blazed through Chuck without a problem, Jasmine cut it pretty close with her steelix because I was parafused, but I pulled through in the end. The rockets didn't really present me with any challenge, and Pryce was easy because Razor Leaf was 2x on all of his pokemon. Clair was a pretty solid competitor, but no really close shaves.
                                    I updated Meganium's set before the E4, which were pretty easy, but Lance tripped me up on my first go through with his level 50 Dragonite's Fire Blast. I was worried about PP the second run through because I had used 2 of my 3 Ethers and my Max Elixer, but I made it through with two Mystery berries and my last Ether. None of the other E4 really presented a challenge, but I got very lucky a LOT of the time, never getting hit by confusion and getting some very crucial body slam Paralyzes.
                                    Anyways, Here's Meganium right now after beating the E4

                                    Now on to conquer the other 8 Gyms and then Red.

                                      Short update I meant to post yesterday. Had internet problems so here they are.....

                                      Episode 2 of Pokemon Ruby: Victreebell, ULTIMATE.
                                      Episode: Team Magma Plans!

                                      • After beating the third gym, I defeated the Winstrate family.
                                      • Took Mudkip out the box, and added him as an HM Slave[ Currently Rock Smash].
                                      • Headed up north to arrive at FIREY PATH. Got through it.
                                      • Arrived at Route 112. Headed from there to Fallabor town.
                                      • From there I headed to Metor Falls. Where I meet Team Aqua's leader, and discovered Team Magma's plans.
                                      • Headed from Route 116 back to MT. Chimney. [Obtained Strength after reuniting the couple!]
                                      • Rode Cable Car and proceeded to defeat Team Magma's grunts there. Now the episode ends with me looking in to their leader's eyes.

                                      At this point I decided to evolve him at level 42.
