      Ultimate Red Monocolor Challenge Platinum Update #1

      Platinum:
      Name: Scarlet
      Starter: Chimchar

      -Got started, caught Copper the Kricketot right away on route 202
      -Copper evolved into a Kircketune after the Barry fight on Route 203
      -Roark was surprisingly easy, just used an X Defend then spammed Fury Cutter
      -Gardenia was dead simple, due in no small portion to my overleveled-ness
      -Got cut from Cynthia, went back to the Old Chateau and caught Casper the Rotom :)
      -Took care of Team Galactic in That One Bad Guy Place
      -Went to route 211 and caught Dhyana the Meditite
      -Got the TM for Brick Break from Oreburgh Gate to teach to Dhyana
      -Fantima was actually pretty tough, needed to be strategic for once
      -Got to route 210 where we saw the return of Umberto the Scyther :D
      -Caught Umberto up with everyone else super easily, then everyone had a hand at Maylene’s demise, because they all had a type advantage over at least one of her pokemans.

      Hey man, why are you using Slugma and Octilliry at the beginning? there are plenty of red pokemon before the first gym, and besides, when you hack in something, only one is allowed. Please read the rules completely before continuing, and you need to start over and do it correctly, please.

      On a side note, next time you post an image that big, use a spoiler tag so it doesn't take up so much space on the page, please.

      Didn't notice the 1 only but it shouldn't really matter too much that I hacked them in.

      Also, there are no red pokemon before the first gym? I think Paras might appear.

        There's Ledyba and Spinarak available (Ariados is considered red). It's tough, but it's what I had to do myself, so its only fair?

        Not the way it works, man. Nice try. Sorry, but you need to restart and play through the game correctly, other wise I won't count it.

          I hate to point this out, I really do, but Ho-oh isn't allowed in the challenge. Only legendaries under a BST of 600 are permitted. It's right there in the rules, dude.

          You have to be kidding me? I didn't even notice...

          Well if that run isn't going to count I am not doing it anymore, I already restarted once, then I got glitched when I got to brock and had to restart from the E4. I was up all night playing it.

            Ruby finished! Began by catching Marilyn the Ralts, and later on added Ricky the Zangoose, Stache the Castform and Skull the Absol. The whole game was a piece of cake, honestly, and Castform was so much more useful than I thought it would be. It didn't really do anything in the Elite Four challenge, but other than that, it was awesome.

            Team:

            Marilyn the Gardevoir, Lv 51 (♀)
            Item: Lax Incense
            Psychic, Calm Mind, Toxic, Thunderbolt


            Ricky the Zangoose, Lv 54 (♂)
            Item: Soft Sand
            Return, Brick Break, Swords Dance, Dig


            Stache the Castform, Lv 50 (♂)
            Item: None
            Ice Beam, Rain Dance, Facade, Thunder


            Skull the Absol, Lv 51 (♂)
            Item: Charcoal
            Shadow Ball, Flamethrower, Aerial Ace, Swords Dance

            Hey, I'm playing FireRed, and I want Jynx in my party. But in order to do that, I gotta trade a Poliwhirl that is level at least level 25. Can I use Poliwag and level it up until 25 so I could get Jynx? Or I'm not allowed, since it's color is blue?

            Yeah, just on wilds though, although you can get Poliwhirl in Viridian City with the Super Rod, which is easy to get, and I always get it before Fuchsia City, where the Good Rod is.

              3. For those playing on GSC/HGSS, if you cannot get three team members before going to Kanto, two can be used.
              Going with more than three is encouraged, however, as is keeping your team somewhat balanced level-wise.
              Honestly, it's not that hard to read the rules. It takes five minutes, max.

              If i catch 2 pokemon which are blue and keep them in the party, If i happen not to use them it still counts as a Mono-Colour challenge. Also it stays as a solo challenge and it counts as a Mono-type challenge.

              there is no rule saying that I have to use the pokemon I catch, Only that I have to have them with me.

              2. You cannot legally obtain that amount in the game you are playing.
              3. For those playing on GSC/HGSS, if you cannot get three team members before going to Kanto, two can be used.
              Going with more than three is encouraged, however, as is keeping your team somewhat balanced level-wise.
              Note the use of the word viable. As in, three team members that you use throughout the challenge. A solo challenge doesn't use any other members except for the one. The only solo challenge that qualifies as a monocolor is a Snorlax run in RBY/FRLG, because it's the only black Pokemon in the Kanto Dex.

              You can do a Totodile solo if you want, and he'd a pretty good one to do it with, but it won't count as a monocolor, sorry.

              Dupes are not encouraged at all, since you should be able to get the minimum on every color (except black in Kanto), although it's not like ou can't have dupes if you want - no more than one though, please. We like variety here . I saw your question in the monotype thread about using Venusaur and 2 Victrebel for a combo green/grass mono, and that will work, although you don't really need to have a second Victreebel, since the minimum party number in Kanto is 2.

              and congrats on finishing your blue challenge on Gold.

              Sorry if you see this as a useless post but, how often should I post my updates on my challenge?

                Cheers for clearing that up and I didn't know whether the 2 part members applied for the Mono-typing aswell.
