    Update #3

    -Headed into the Galactic building, Miles brutalised everything (Okay, Devo helped with Skuntank, but it was only sleep powder).
    -Got the bicycle and Explorer kit
    -Rode down Cycling Road, got the Vs Seeker and Dowsing Machine
    -Encountered Cyrus in Mt Coronet, he spouted some fauxlosophic bull**** and walked away
    -Caught a bibarel-HM slave and a male Ralts (named Bridget, 5 internets to anyone who gets the reference)
    -Entered Hearthome City and got attacked by a Buneary, went to the contest hall, got a tuxedo.
    -Battled Gav, had completely forgotten he was here...good thing this is Pearl though or he might've been slightly dangerous.
    -Headed to Solaceon Town, Miles and Bridget evolved.
    -Went on to Veilstone city, rode straight through to Pastoria Town
    -Caught Khan the Kangaskhan in the Great Marsh (Where it'd normally be available post-E4)
    -Went back to Veilstone and headed to the gym

          I'll give you... Skarmory, Ninetales, Drapion, Lanturn, Armaldo. I'm not sure if you want me to choose your game, but if you do, then have a go at Platinum.

          Thanks. Yeah, I wanted you to choose the game. This will be a pretty good team. I'm gonna have to trade/hack in a couple eggs - Skarmory and Chinchou can't be obtained until after the Elite Four, I will hack in a Claw fossil after I get the Underground Kit in Eterna City and revive it in Oreburgh, and I will catch Vulpix in-game by hacking it in where it can be found with a Dongle. Skorupi will be caught normally I guess. And Bidoof/Bibarel for the HM slave of course!

              Congratulations WeightyWillBill, our second Champion! I'll add you to the list now.

              Excuse my tardiness but I genuinely will be starting this challenge before much longer. I'm currently undergoing the laborious process of trading all, yes, ALL 400+ of my Pokemon collection from Diamond onto HeartGold, where they will stay for the foreseeable future (probably until I get Black/White). Who the hell made the trading animation SO SLOW?!!?

              Anyway, once they're all on HG, I'll get breeding, and transfer the eggs over to my SoulSilver game; then I'll do the challenge.

                      Started Diamond a couple days ago. Haven't gotten very far. I am going to be using Flygon, Kingdra, Magnezone, and Exeggutor.

                      Named myself I, chose a girl avatar, and named my "friend" ASH. Chose Chimchar as starter. Hacked in Trapinch/Horsea, and just beat the first Gym with them. Magnemite/Exeggcute are waiting in the sidelines for now until I get those two up a bit to help with the level grinding.

                      Team I:

                      Trapinch - L15
                      Moves:
                      Bite
                      Sand-Attack

                      Horsea - L15
                      Moves:
                      Water Gun
                      SmokeScreen
                      Bubble
                      Leer


                      This is going a bit slower than I thought, but I am currently doing a Ultimate Monotype w/ Fighting so I'll do this when I get bored of getting owned by Flying types.

                          I have finally traded all the Pokemon I need over to my main HG game, and so I've bred my Ones That Got Away team. They're currently waiting on HG at Lv.1 until tomorrow, when I'll start a new SS game and trade them over to start the challenge. So I'll finally get to play through my own challenge! Hurrah!

                          Anyways, a pre-update of my team:

                          Lv.1, Male, Mild. Somewhat stubborn.
                          Lv.1, Female, Sassy. Somewhat of a clown.
                          Lv.1, Female, Docile. Somewhat vain.
                          Lv.1, Male, Quiet. A little quick-tempered.
                          Lv.1, Male, Adamant. Scatters things often.
                          Lv.1, Male, Relaxed. Quick to flee.

                          Looking forward to starting this one!

                              I finally started my Challenge. I picked Chikorita and beat my rival, and traded my team across from HG, all at Lv.1. I swiftly realised how good it would have been to raise them to Lv.5 before trading them, because grinding an Omanyte is tough when it's Lv.1 and its only attack it Constrict, which does a mighty 1 damage to Pidgeys.

                              After beating that very first Pidgey though (at the cost of 2 potions and about 15 Constrict PP) Omanyte went straight to Lv.3 though, including a +3 Sp.Atk boost when he hit Lv.3. It was worth it in the end, then. I decided to get each Pokemon to Lv.4 before I started to actually move on. Misdreavus was next, and was just as tricky although for different reasons. The wild Sentret I bumped into used Foresight and Scratch did a lot more damage to Misdreavus than Psywave did to it; I switched in Pinsir and ViceGrip sorted Sentret out, who bizarrely decided to use consecutive Foresights. The next battle, a wild Pidgey, proved easier for Misdreavus despite Psywave's unpredictability, as of course Tackle couldn't hit her. She dinged to Lv.4 and I moved onto Girafarig.

                              Girafarig's displays in levelling up were hopefully not a sign of things to come; despite having Facade (105 base power with STAB) she had pitiful defences and went down to two Scratches from Sentret. With Pinsir's help though she managed to level up in the end - things improved exponentially as soon as she got past Lv.1, to the point that she was two-shotting enemies by Lv.3 - and so did Pinsir in the process, with ease, and his Attack rose dramatically.

                              Dratini was next, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that his moveset included Thunder Wave and Extremespeed. His father was a Dragonair that I'd half-raised on Pokemon Diamond, so he had a bit of a headstart move-wise. Extremespeed caused Sentret some problems even with Dratini only at Lv.1, and with Girafarig's help he levelled up in no time. It's pretty lucky he's rather handy already, because it'll be a long time before he's fully evolved!

                              The last Pokemon I had to raise was Croagunk, and I was about to do so when I realised his only offensive move was Astonish, which wouldn't hit Sentret or Pidgey. Dash and blast. Luckily though, Croagunk's part-Poison typing meant that he'd be invaluable against all the annoying Weedle around here, whom he could hit. Terrific stuff, especially considering that his starting stats were lower than all 5 of my other party members. I was worried he'd be useless right from the off... So we moved on North from Cherrygrove and lo and behold, a Weedle attacked! Croagunk made short work of it and was at Lv.4 in no time, thankfully learning Mud-Slap along the way (he's still screwed against Pidgey though!).

                              Anyways, next time I'll do a proper update with less random waffle; I just wanted to post my (very) early impressions of my team before we got started properly. The team is as below in the spoiler tags at the time of writing.

                              Spoiler:

                              Croagunk, Male, Relaxed, Lv.4
                              Impressions: surprisingly useful so far, despite horrible starting stats and moveset. Can't be poisoned by Weedle and hits surprisingly hard.

                              Omanyte, Male, Mild, Lv.4
                              Impressions: another whose typing will come in very handy, as Normal attacks tend to do just 1 damage. Can't hit too hard yet with only Constrict; for the moment better defensively than offensively.

                              Misdreavus, Female, Docile, Lv.4
                              Impressions: something of an unknown quantity so far, mainly due to Psywave's unreliability. Good stats already and immunity to Normal moves helps a great deal though.

                              Girafarig, Female, Sassy, Lv.4
                              Impressions: had a very shaky start, still the only one of my Pokemon to faint so far. Since then though she's gone from strength to strength; Facade hits so hard opponents don't have time to test her dodgy defences.

                              Dratini, Male, Adamant, Lv.4
                              Impressions: best moveset of the lot, although stats are rounded but unimpressive just now. Solid if unspectacular thus far.

                              Pinsir, Male, Quiet, Lv.4
                              Impressions: undoubtedly the star of the show so far, Pinsir was the Pokemon to step in when Girafarig, Misdreavus or Dratini encountered trouble. He's levelled up in remarkable time, and ViceGrip hits like a steam train. Shame his typing renders him unusable in the first Gym...

                                Update 2:

                                - Cleared the Sprout Tower
                                - Beat Falkner using Misdreavus to Spite Pidgeotto's Roost down to 0PP and smacking it repeatedly with Girafarig's Facade and Omanyte's Water Gun
                                - Made it through Union Cave
                                - Cleared the Rockets out of the Slowpoke Well
                                - Beat Rival at Azalea Town
                                - Beat Bugsy using Misdreavus to Confuse Ray and Psywave Scyther, and Croagunk to soak up Kakuna's Poison Stings
                                - Caught the Farfetch'd and got Cut
                                - Move Tutored Headbutt onto all 6 Pokemon
                                - Got through Ilex Forest and reached Goldenrod.


                                Spoiler:

                                Croagunk, Male, Relaxed, Lv.17
                                Rock Smash, Faint Attack, Headbutt, Poison Sting
                                Impressions: really useful so far, mainly because of his awesome typing rendering Bug and Poison moves practically useless. I taught him Rock Smash and he learned Faint Attack so now he has a couple of decent offensive moves too.

                                Omanyte, Male, Mild, Lv.15
                                Water Gun, Withdraw, Headbutt, Bite
                                Impressions: was more defensive than offensive until he learned Water Gun, when he suddenly became incredibly powerful due to his high Sp.Atk, aided by his nature. I didn't use him against Bugsy but he'll no doubt come in handy later, especially when he has AncientPower and (probably) Ice Beam.

                                Misdreavus, Female, Docile, Lv.17
                                Confuse Ray, Astonish, Headbutt, Psywave
                                Impressions: getting better all the time, especially now she knows Confuse Ray and Astonish, which is slightly more reliable than Psywave. I can see her being an incredibly useful Pokemon, especially after I evolve her; opponents struggle to hit her, and her Sp.Atk just keeps rising and rising... I'm not usually the world's biggest fan of Ghost Pokemon (Banette aside) but this little lady is changing my view.

                                Girafarig, Female, Sassy, Lv.17
                                Headbutt, Facade, Odor Sleuth, Confusion
                                Impressions: probably my most consistent Pokemon so far, although I couldn't use her against Bugsy because Scyther's U-turn would have decimated her. Facade and (now) Headbutt hit hard, aided by Confusion for all those annoying Weedles.

                                Dratini, Male, Adamant, Lv.13
                                Thunder Wave, Headbutt, Twister, Extremespeed
                                Impressions: easily my biggest disappointment to date. His stats are pretty bad, Extremespeed doesn't hit hard enough yet to warrant only having 5PP, and Twister is a poor second option. Plus he levels up more slowly than the rest of my team. I know he'll improve, but for now he just isn't that useful...

                                Pinsir, Male, Quiet, Lv.13
                                Headbutt, Cut, Rock Tomb, Seismic Toss
                                Impressions: started the Challenge insanely well, due to his raw, simple power. He hits hard still, but Vicegrip isn't quite as useful as it once was, and his typing has proved more of a burden than a bonus so far - he wasn't much use in either Gym, although I should have used him against Bugsy's Scyther - not only does he have the highest BST of my team at the moment, but he also knows Rock Tomb (which I forgot I'd taught him) which would have destroyed Scyther. Still, a simple but effective Pokemon, and the only one of my team who could learn Cut.

                                    After a couple long sessions over this past week, I have completed my Diamond run.

                                    Here's how my journey turned out.

                                    Update 1 - Oreburgh City - Victory Road
                                    Spoiler:

                                    • So after I got my last two members of my team, Magnemite and Exeggcute, I traveled from Oreburgh to Floaroma, beating trainers and leveling my team. I removed the Team Galactic threat and rescued the old man hostage and ran up to Eterna Forest.
                                    • I grinded in there for quite a while, getting my whole team to L17 before tackling the Eterna Gym. Got Cut right before from Cynthia. This gym was troublesome for me, since I had a Ground/Water that couldn't use, and Exeggcute doesn't really learn any good moves until later. Took me a couple tries to kill Roserade with Magnemite, but I emerged victorious in the end.
                                    • Headed south down Cycling Road after claiming a bicycle and explorer kit, and ran through Wayward Cave, grinding some more with the lost girl. Got Vs. Seeker and Dowsing MCHN. Bestest presents ever :D
                                    • Hearthome was next, grabbed a few items and beat ASH.
                                    • Solaceon Town was next, caught a Starly for Fly/Defog and climbed Lost Tower for Strength, taught to Chimchar (Rock Smash/Cut as well). Saw an Unown in the ruins and claimed a couple items there too.
                                    • Ran through Mt. Coronet, met a random dude with green hair, entered Veilstone City. Loaded up on Fresh Water/Lemonade in the Dept. Store. Exeggcute owned the gym with Confusion spam. Got a Coin Case (dunno why I never used it). Helped get Evan his PokeDex back from the thugs who "found" it. Grabbed Fly.
                                    • Back to Hearthome and exited south towards Pastoria. Magnemite evolved into Magneton around here. Horsea evolved into Seadra around here too. Beat some trainers, ran through the marsh and got some items. Arrived in Pastoria and got Defog from the Great Marsh. Taught it to Starly.
                                    • I love Pastoria City. Move Re-learner is here :D Taught Magneton Tri-Attack from him (until I get Flash Cannon) and proceeded to own the water gym with Exeggcute/Magneton.
                                    • Followed the Team Galactic grunt out of the city east, and made my way along the beach to the Hotel area, whipping trainers on the way. Found a Suite Card and claimed a Lava Cookie (yum!) and fought trainers inside the restaurant. Got the SecretPotion from Cynthia and flew back to the Psyduck blocking the way to Celestic Town.
                                    • Healed the Psyduck, got the Old Charm from Cynthia to deliver, and made my way there, clearing the fog along the way. Arrived in Celestic, beat up the grunt, got Surf as my reward. Taught it to Seadra.
                                    • Trapinch has evolved into Vibrava by now as well. Back to Hearthome to defeat the Ghost Gym. Confusion and Crunch (Vibrava) owns the Gym.
                                    • With Surf, I made my way to Floaroma to get a Leaf Stone. Evolved Exeggcute into Exeggutor. Taught him Sunny Day and Solar Beam. Pew Pew.
                                    • Canalave City is next. Surfed there, battling trainers along the way. Beat ASH, then the Gym. Exeggutor Solar Beamed/Seadra Surfed them all. Magneton also helped with Flash Cannon.
                                    • EXPLOSION!!!!!!!!!!!!! and story events. Boring I know.
                                    • Went to Iron Island to get my Riolu egg. Grinded a bit here with the instant healing.
                                    • Valor Lakefront next. Put a beat down on Galactic. Same story at all the other lakes. Got Ice Beam and Rock Climb on the snow path. Beat the Gym in Snowpoint with mostly Magnezone (evolved in the cave before the snow routes).
                                    • Used Rock Climb to claim Psychic TM, taught it to Exeggutor (Bye Bye Confusion). Went to Acuity Lake, more story events. Went to Galactic HQ and beat it easily. Vibrava evolves into Flygon. I free the 3 Psychic legendaries.
                                    • Time to kill Dialga. Mt. Coronet is way too long in my opinion. Final Galactic battle is a joke. Dig (Flygon) plus Sleep Powder (Exeggutor) beat Dialga.
                                    • Flew to the lakes again and picked up Thunder Bolt (Taught to Magnezone) and killed the 2 legendaries and Mesprit ran away. Hatched my Riolu for Nat'l Dex.
                                    • Sunyshore City now. Like I need to be told to battle the Gym Leader. Flygon raped with Ground immunity to Electric. Got Waterfall from Jasmine (Why is she here...) Taught it to Seadra.
                                    • Surfed to Victory Road. Healed up and bought some Max Repels. Made my way through. My team was all about 55 or so.


                                    Update 2 - Elite Four (Both Times)
                                    Spoiler:

                                    • Aaron was rather easy. Actually the whole Elite Four was cake. I taught Rock Slide to Flygon, and most of his team is Bug/Flying. I killed Drapion with Earthquake (TM found in Wayward Cave) and the rest with Thunder Bolt when Flygon fainted.
                                    • Bertha went down to Earthquake/Surf/Solar Beam
                                    • Flint got rolled by Surf for his fire types and Onix, and Dragon Claw for the rest.
                                    • Lucian went down to Crunch (Flygon) and other random moves. Alakazam was a bit tough as he knows Focus Blast, but Thunder Wave/Thunder Bolt Spam took him down.
                                    • Cynthia was easy too. I taught Seadra Ice Beam (Forgot Waterfall beforehand) solely for Garchomp. Flygon got one shot by Dragon Rush, so I sent out Seadra...and he got one shot by a CRITICAL HIT Giga Impact. Damn. Reset and no critical hit Giga Impact meant a 2HkO with Ice Beam.
                                    • Yay, champion! However, I wanted to do it with kingdra, so I got the Nat'l Dex, and made my way out to the Survival area, where I spent about an hour catching Horsea until I got a Dragon Scale to evolve Seadra.
                                    • Time to challenge the E4 again!
                                    • Pretty much the same story for all the fights. Cynthia was a bit different, as I started with kingdra and dragon danced 3 times to get my speed up. Beat Spiritomb with 2 Surfs and then 2HkO'd Garchomp with Ice Beam (She used Brick Break for some reason...). The rest of her team fell to super effective attacks (Go Exeggutor!).


                                    This was a really fun challenge :D

                                    I think I might do it again for a Gen 3 or 2 game after I finish my other challenges.

                                    Final Team I:

                                    wow, that was alot of typing.

                                    Number required:6
                                    Any specific requirements:surf, fly, rock smash, flash, grass type, dragon type.



                                    Jeez, never really new i had that many.
                                    Go for Spearow (20 lol), Dratini, Staryu, Parasect, Sneasel, and Houndour.

                                    Obviously, you can evolve them

                                    Have fun! If non of them can learn Rock Smash or Flash, post here and I'll pick one that can. Shouldn't be a problem though I don't think.

                                      Congratulations boomerjp, I'll add you to the Champions list right away. ger345, I've added you to Challengers.

                                      BTW, I'm fairly sure Parasect learns both Rock Smash and Flash, so ger345 should be good to go.

                                      Update 3:

                                      - Cleared out the Goldenrod Underground
                                      - Found Whitney dicking about in the Radio Tower. Proceeded to beat up all her Gym Trainer buddies
                                      - Beat Whitney herself, primarily using my female team members, Misdreavus and Girafarig
                                      - Moved on North from Goldenrod, beating up a Sudowoodo using Omanyte
                                      - Reached Ecruteak. Beat up my rival (Manboob) at the Burnt Tower, even though my team were a bit underlevelled at this point
                                      - Set the Beasts free, then got grinding (realised Morty's Lv.25 Gengar would destroy me otherwise)
                                      - Eventually beat Morty and moved west to Olivine, having picked up Strength and Surf along the way


                                      Spoiler:

                                      Croagunk, Male, Relaxed, Lv.30
                                      Rock Smash, Faint Attack, Focus Blast, Revenge
                                      Impressions: growing into a really great Pokemon. His awesome typing covers his defensive frailties, and Focus Blast is hilariously overpowered for this stage of the game. The next 7 levels could be quite tough though - his BST of 300 might really start to hinder him at these higher levels until he evolves.

                                      Omanyte, Male, Mild, Lv.26
                                      Rollout, Mud Shot, Headbutt, Surf
                                      Impressions: another Pokemon who may struggle before he really starts to shine, Omanyte's been dependable when I've needed him. I feel I should have used him more throughout the game - he could have come in useful against all the Gym leaders so far, but I didn't use him because there was always one Pokemon more useful in those Gyms. We'll see though.

                                      Misdreavus, Female, Docile, Lv.26
                                      Confuse Ray, Astonish, Headbutt, Psybeam
                                      Impressions: only a small change to her moveset, but what a difference it's made. Psybeam kicks like a mule with her awesome Sp.Atk. She's still tough to hit and she's still going strong. Roll on Lv.37 when she learns Shadow Ball (and I evolve her)!

                                      Girafarig, Female, Sassy, Lv. 26
                                      Reflect, Psybeam, Odor Sleuth, Strength
                                      Impressions: probably my most consistent Pokemon so far, still. It's quite difficult to think of new things to say about Girafarig - she's still ahead of the rest and will be for a while yet (until the rest evolve). I kinda liked Girafarig before this Challenge... Now I love her.

                                      Dragonair, Male, Adamant, Lv.30
                                      Thunder Wave, Headbutt, Dragon Rage, Extremespeed
                                      Impressions: ladies and gentlemen, Team Sammuthegreat has had its first evolution! After he hit Lv.15 and learned Dragon Rage, things got a whole lot easier for young Dratini. The next 15 levels were a cinch, and Dragonair was the key to my success against Morty - or at least, Thunder Wave was, before Gengar critted a Shadow Ball. Bah. Still, he gets the award for Most Improved Pokemon.

                                      Pinsir, Male, Quiet, Lv.24
                                      Headbutt, Cut, Rock Tomb, Brick Break
                                      Impressions: Pinsir's nature perfectly describes his performance so far. After that blistering start, he's frankly not done very much. His typing hasn't come in particularly handy yet, and I keep finding myself raising other Pokemon to take on a Gym and forgetting to level poor Pinsir. He's still got plenty of time to come good though, and with his crazy Atk stat I'm sure he will.

                                      Update on my Platinum challenge:

                                      Spoiler:
                                      • Went to Oreburgh Town, picking up Rock Smash on the way.
                                      • Found Roark in the cave, and after getting Zapp up to L12, when he learns Water Gun, I took on the gym.


                                        Geodude and Onix were both OHKO by Water Gun, and Zapp was able to survive a Leer + Headbutt from Crainidos with 2 HP and 2HKO with Water Gun. The extra 2 HP is from a level up.

                                      • After talking to Nolan, I Rock Smashed my way through the cave and made my way to Floarama Town.
                                      • Got some berries, and saved the scientist from Team Galactic by beating Mars.


                                      • Went north to Eterna City, got Cut and challenged the gym with Silver.


                                        Turtwig and Cherrim were easily taken care of by Peck, but Cherrim Leech Seeded and Roserade paralyzed Silver. She fought through it, though, and 3HKO Roserade with Peck.

                                      • With Cut in hand, went to save the Bike Shop owner.
                                      • Talked to Looker (crazy guy), then beat all the Grunts.
                                      • On the top floor, found another Galactic leader, Jupiter.


                                        Was able to paralyze Skunktank with Zapp before switching to Silver and Pecked him to death. Night Slash fortunately did not crit.

                                      • Got a Bike and the Explorer Kit, but the emulator cannot go Underground, so I hacked in a Claw Fossil, then went back to Oreburgh (the long way lol) to revive Anorith.
                                      • Went to the Museum, revived Anorinth at L20 and named him Slasher. Taught him Rock Tomb.
                                      • Went up Cycling Road and then went back down.
                                      • Am about to fight the trainers underneath Cycling Road and go through Wayward Cave.

                                      Edit: Update 2 (wow, no one posted in 2 days???):

                                      Spoiler:
                                      • Went to Wayward Cave and led the lost girl to the exit after grinding a bit with her.
                                      • Went to the hidden cave and got the Earthquake TM.
                                      • Made my way to Hearthome City.
                                      • On the way there just outside Mt. Coronet:


                                      • After the plot stuff, I challenged the gym. Fantina wasn't easy.


                                        Beat Duskull with Zapp pretty easily. I Parafused Mismagius then switched to Slasher, who was able to finished him off with Iron Claw. Haunter has low Defense so he was easy for Slasher.

                                      • Then I healed up and went to the exit to go to Rt 209, where Nolan was waiting for me!


                                        He was pretty easy after I was able to hit through Starvaria's DT. Silver took care of the rest as well.

                                      • After healing and boxing Fluffy, I hacked in a Vulpix at Rt 209, which is where Vulpix is found using the LeafGreen Dongle method. Got a female one with Bold nature.
                                      • The problem Vulpix has is that at L14, she forgets Ember for Will-O-Wisp, so when she is caught at L16, she only knows one attack move (Quick Attack), which really sucks. She does learn Flamethrower at L24 though, which is pretty early...grinding galore - the Exp. Share makes it easier though.
                                      • Also caught a Birabel for later when I need it. Named Worker2.
                                      • After arriving at Solaceon Town, I am about to go up Lost Tower.
