Update on Ultimate Monocolor Challenge (Yellow).

Update #1 on Platinum.

Name: Sunny
Rival: Barry
Starter: Turtwig
  • Started with Turtwig, and after I got to Oreburgh City, I caught Spirit the Ponyta.
  • Roark was really tough but I was eventually able to win thanks to a ton of Potions and Growl (lol).
  • Moved on to Florama Town and caught a male Burmy off a Honey Tree, then defeated Mars in the Valley Windworks.
  • Soon afterwards, Burmy evolved into Mothim!
  • Went through Eterna Forest to Eterna City, and renamed Mothim Baggins.
  • Took on the gym, and Baggins won easily with Bug Bite and Confusion.
  • Defeated Jupiter in the TG Eterna building, then headed down Cycling Road.
  • Went through Mt. Coronet to Hearthome City, where I got Shock the Eevee from Bebe. Then we explored Wayward Cave.
  • Went back to Hearthome and challenged the gym. Fantina was tough, but we beat her with a team effort.
  • Moved on to Solaceon Town, and after grabbing the Thunderstone in the Ruins, Shock evolved into Jolteon!
  • Headed to Veilstone City, then skipped down to the Valor Lakefront, where I caught YingYang the Girafarig.
  • Continued on to Route 213 and caught Seabreeze the Wingull, then backtracked to Veilstone City to take on the gym.
  • YingYang (Psybeam) and Spirit (Fire Blast) took down the entire gym and Maylene with ease.
  • Went back south to Pastoria City and beat all the trainers around the city, including Barry.
  • Wake was not hard to beat.
  • Defeated the Grunt who bombed the Great Marsh, then headed north from Solaceon to Celestic Town.
  • Beat another bomb-toting Grunt, then Shock took down Cyrus easily.
  • Got the Surf HM, and used it to explore all the water routes now accessible, then headed to Canalave City.
  • Defeated Barry, then took on the gym, and YingYang (Earthquake) combined with Seabreeze (Brine) to beat Byron.
  • Got the Strength HM from Riley (skipped Iron Island for now), then felt Team Galactic blow up Lake Valor.
  • Went to investigate and defeated Saturn, then helped Lucas out and defeated Mars as well.
  • Made the trek to Snowpoint City, where Shock (Double Kick) and Spirit (Flame Wheel/Flare Blitz) easily took down Candice.
  • Having learned Flare Blitz at L46, directly after the battle, Spirit evolved into Rapidash!
  • Visited Lake Acuity and found out that TG was up to no good in Veilstone City, so I headed there.
  • While I was in the Warehouse, Seabreeze finally learned Air Slash at L47, and evolved into Pelipper!
  • Eventually found Cyrus, and defeated him easily with Shock's Double Kick and Thunder.
  • Beat Saturn again and released the Lake Trio, then started to climb up Mt. Coronet after Cyrus.
  • I am saved in Mt. Coronet.

    Color: Red
    Games: Soul Silver, Ruby, Platinum, White (I already did Fire Red)
    Ultimate: Yes

    I'm finally making this an ultimate, so I can say I finished at least one color. I've got a question though. I was planning to use a Rotom in Platinum and I was wondering if I could 'hack' in the event to make it a Fan Rotom. The color stays the same I guess and it wouldn't be any problem if I couldn't, but I thought it'd be better to ask.

    If you can activate the event to get the Secret Key (which unlocks the room IIRC), then sure, especially since the type doesn't change IIRC. There are Mystery Gift programs you can use for that I believe. Another example of this kind of "event hacking" is to get Zorua/Zoroark in B/W, which I used in my Gray Monocolor.

    FOR EVERYONE TO READ!!!:

    Also, I have been thinking about this for a while now, but over in the Monotype thread run by NecrumWarrior, there is a rule that one additional Pokemon can be traded in if it's not in your game, as long as it is part of the regional Pokedex (such as version exclusives and the fossil pokemon in B2/W2). It must be at a lower level than your weakest team member, or an egg (strongly preferred method).

    I like how this works for the Monotype, and am considering adding this rule here. Any thoughts on this? I am inclined to add it unless a lot of people object to it.

      One of my favorite parts of this challenge is teambuilding, as this can a lot of the time be more challenging, or at least more strategic, than actually playing the challenge. A fairly large aspect of the teambuilding process is choosing which game from each generation to play. For instance, when I start up the gen IV leg of my purple challenge I'm going to do it on Pearl as that is the only gen IV game where Misdreavus is available. Doing this eliminates the possibilty of using Espeon, as you only get the free Eevee in Platinum. Those sort of choices are always super intriguing for me to sit and puzzle out, figuring out the risks vs. rewards. I personally feel that the new rule implementation would subtract from the "challenge" of the teambuilding process. Of course, I wouldn't stop doing the challenge because of it, but my official vote is still no.

        Like Huggermugger I really like the teambuilding. I too think this rule would take away the challenge and choices you have to take whilst building your team. But I can also see where some people would prefer this rule as it makes challenges where fewer pokémon are available a bit 'easier'. Just like the choice between Espeon and Misdreavus, you have to choose between Honchkrow and Houndoom in a Black Mono Color in Sinnoh. I'm not really inclined to use it if you decide to put it in (I might), but I can see where it comes in handy. I wouldn't be disappointed either way, but I'm gonna vote yes, 'cause even if the rule's there you won't have to use it.

          Sounds like a good rule to me, for whomever wants to use it. Like Buzz Buzz pointed out, no one is obligated to use it, but it would be there for the people who want to. The people who like the challenge of team building with fewer Pokémon can just ignore it, so I don't see the harm. I'll vote yes.

          Well, I will keep the "poll" regarding the potential new rule open until this weekend, so if have an opinion about it, post now!

          Anyway, on to more mundane things, like my last update on Yellow Platinum:


          Update on Ultimate Monocolor Challenge (Yellow).

          Final Update (#2) on Platinum.
          • Climbed Mt. Coronet and defeated Mars and Jupiter alongside Barry, then Cyrus messed up in summoning legendary Pokémon.
          • Navigated the Distortion World and beat Cyrus at the end, then killed Giratina.
          • Back in the real world, the Lake Trio was back to their lakes, so I went up to Lake Acuity to capture Intel the Uxie.
          • Made my way to Sunyshore City, where Volkner had no answer for Shock's Volt Absorb ability and YingYang's Earthquake.
          • Surfed up to Victory Road, and made my way through without much trouble, then defeated Barry at the Pokemon League.
          • EV trained my team, did a little grinding, and finalized movesets, then used my Rare Candies to get everyone to L56.
          • Took on the Elite Four:
          • Aaron was handled mostly by Shock (Thunder), with Intel providing killer support with Stealth Rock.
          • Bertha was defeated mostly by Seabreeze's Surf attack, with Ice Beam for Gliscor.
          • Against Flint, Intel again provided nice support with Stealth Rock, and Baggins, YingYang, and Shock were able to clean up.
          • Lucian was easy. Thanks to a couple lucky misses and great speed, Spirit was able to solo him with Megahorn.
          • Last but certainly not least was the Champion, Cynthia. She was tough as always! Here's a video and play-by-play of the fight.

            ♦ Started up Platinum and chose Turtwig as my starter. Caught a Zubat shortly after, who will just be a temporary team member.
            ♦ In order for me to be able to beat the first gym, I had to grind Zubat all the way up to Lv 22, for him to evolve...it was definitely worth the pain though.
            ♦ Once I made it to Floaroma, I went to the Valley Windworks to catch my first true team member, Phorcys the Shellos.
            ♦ Trained him up a bit and then got rid of Team Galactic.
            ♦ Went north to the Eterna Forest, where I caught Achlys the Gastly.
            ♦ Grinded her up a bit, and made her evolve into Haunter before facing Gardenia.
            ♦ I needed some help from Golbat, but she was eventually taken down.
            ♦ Beat Jupiter at the Hideout in Eterna City, and then got the bicycle from the man, which granted me access to my next team member - Ophion the Gligar.
            ♦ Since Ophion had a terrible moveset, I immediately went to the secret part of Wayward Cave and picked up the Earthquake TM for him.
            ♦ Trekked through to Hearthome City, where Fantina awaited me in the gym. I had to play a bit smart in order to beat her, since she was pretty tough at this stage.
            ♦ Continued on to Veilstone City, and evolved Ophion before taking on the gym.
            ♦ Maylene went down easily, with help from the entire team.
            ♦ Skipped all the trainers I could in order to get to Pastoria as quickly as possible.
            ♦ Once there, I searched through the Great Marsh and found a Skorupi that I named Deimos.
            ♦ Currently training him before taking on the gym.

            Phorcys the Gastrodon, Lv 35 (♂)

                ♦ After some training, I challenged the gym and won by mostly using Achlys.
                ♦ Chased the bomb-totin' grunt and defeated him, then made my way up to Celestic Town and beat Cyrus.
                ♦ Got the Surf HM from Cynthia's grandma, which meant Surf sidequests!
                ♦ Picked up some TMs along the way and taught them to various members.
                ♦ Surfed to Canalave City and took down my rival, then I sailed to Iron Island and conquered it with the help of Riley.
                ♦ Byron went down easily thanks to Phorcys' Water-moves and Deimos' Brick Break.
                ♦ Heard what happened at the lake and went to investigate it, which eventually led me all the way up to Snowpoint, where I smashed Candice.
                ♦ Flew to Veilstone and infiltrated Galactic's HQ.
                ♦ Went up to the Spear Pillar and Distortion World and foiled their plans.
                ♦ This granted me access to Sunyshore City, so I went there and challenged the gym, which was an easy victory thanks to Ophion and Phorcys.
                ♦ Surfed up to Victory Road and ventured my way through, to end up at the Pokémon League.
                ♦ Aaron was tougher than expected, but Stealth Rock helped me out here.
                ♦ Bertha was quite tough too, but I had many supereffective moves to stop her.
                ♦ Flint was swept by Ophion.
                ♦ Lucian was mainly taken down by Deimos, but the entire team helped.
                ♦ Cynthia was actually easier than I thought she would be, but it did require some stalling from my part. Ophion was definitely the star player.

                  Update on Ultimate Monocolor Challenge (Yellow).

                  Update #1 on White 2.

                  Name: Sunny
                  Rival: Hugh
                  Starter: Snivy
                  • Started with Snivy, then caught Smiley the Sewaddle on Route 20.
                  • Smiley was able to take down Cheren with Bug Bite and a crit Razor Leaf after learning it during the battle.
                  • Moved on to Virbank City and caught Erik the Elekid in Virbank Complex.
                  • After a couple tries, Erik was able to pull it out against Roxie for our second badge.
                  • "Traded" in an egg, and after lots of walking around and checking out PokéStar Studios, out hatched Khufu the Archen!
                  • Defeated Team Plasma and did a little grinding to train up Khufu, then sailed to Castelia City.
                  • While we did some training, Smiley evolved into Swadloon, then the next level up, evolved into Leavanny!
                  • Found Team Plasma in the Sewers, then defeated Burgh after several tries since Burgh's Leavanny is fast.
                  • Made my way up through Route 4 to the Desert Resort, and caught Hatshepsut the Yamask.
                  • Trained her up on trainers I skipped before in Castelia City and Route 4, then we arrived at Nimbasa City.
                  • After playing a bunch of Battle Subway, our team did some training around Nimbasa City.
                  • Got everyone to at least L30 for the gym, and Erik evolved into Electabuzz!
                  • After a few tries against Elesa, Hatshephut was able to burn Zebstrika with Will-O-Wisp, paving the way for Smiley to clean up.
                  • We crossed the bridge to Driftveil City and saved there.

                    Emerald done!

                    ♦ Beat the first gym with Rhea the Skitty. Had to abuse Assist a bit in order to win, but it worked.
                    ♦ Skipped the second gym due to the weakness, and instead continued to Mauville, and caught Eos the Illumise to help me with the gym. It was a tough battle, but I managed to bring him down.
                    ♦ On my way to the fourth gym, I caught Minos the Koffing and Morpheus the Grumpig after taking care of Team Magma on Mt. Chimney.
                    ♦ Had to train up a bit to take down Flannery, she was pretty tough. After the battle, I went back to Dewford and humiliated Brawly.
                    ♦ Sailed back to Petalburg and beat my dad, who actually wasn't that difficult.
                    ♦ Got the Surf HM and did some sidequests before heading up to Fortree, where I beat Winona easily.
                    ♦ Eventually reached Mossdeep after doing a bunch of stuff with the evil teams.
                    ♦ Tate & Liza were fairly difficult since I didn't have much to hit them with, but I prevailed in the end.
                    ♦ The battle against the Sootopolis leader was a Juan-derful victory, Rhea and Eos were the star players.
                    ♦ Went through Victory Road and ended up at the Pokémon League.
                    ♦ All of the members were neither difficult or easy, so I got to the champion who put up more of a fight, but couldn't beat me in the end.

                        Finally got around to an update. I'm starting (continuing from Fire Red) with Platinum instead of Soul Silver and Ruby first. I've got 4 badges and my entire team assembled. As I said (and asked first) I've used an AR code to get the secret key and changed rotom's form.

                              You can do each on a separate file if you so choose, but mixing and matching colors isn't permitted

                              A quick search on Bulbapedia says yes.

                                  Got Crystal completed as well:

                                  ♦ My first team member was a Zubat, whom I named Pandia. She defeated Falkner, Bugsy and Whitney all on her own (didn't know Snubbull was accessible on Route 35), and then Hyperion the Eevee joined the team. I also caught my Snubbull, named it Methis.
                                  ♦ Methis and Hyperion were great against Morty, since they were both Normal-types.
                                  ♦ Made my way to Olivine City, climbed the Lighthouse and crossed the sea to Cianwood City.
                                  ♦ On my way there, I encountered my final team member, Tethys the Mantine.
                                  ♦ Chuck wasn't too big of a deal to handle, but he wasn't the easiest either.
                                  ♦ With the SecretPotion in my hands, I went back, cured Amphy and took on Jasmine.
                                  ♦ She was quite easy due to her many weaknesses, so I pulled off a victory.
                                  ♦ Stormed the Rocket Hideout and challenged Pryce, who wasn't difficult either.
                                  ♦ Team Rocket blasted away from Goldenrod too, so I went through the Ice Path and challenged Clair. A bit more difficult, but my team did it.
                                  ♦ Went to the Dragon's Den and took the quiz, then continued to the Pokémon League through Victory Road.
                                  ♦ Will was very easy to beat, I had a pretty diverse moveset on most of my team members at this point, so that helped.
                                  ♦ Same story for Koga.
                                  ♦ Bruno was a tad bit more difficult, but Tethys obviously did most of the work.
                                  ♦ Karen was a team effort.
                                  ♦ Lance decided to be a bit of a pain in the neck, I was counting on Tethys to take care of him easily, but it didn't turn out that way. A couple of Revives and Potions solved that, though.
                                  ♦ Kanto was just a breeze, and I trained everyone up to Lv 60 for Red, as usual. Being Red and all, he was pretty tough, but proof of victory goes here:

                                    First Update

                                    Started my journey, I picked Cyndaquil as my starter and I named him Wildfire
                                    I went to see Mr. Pokemon and received a call from Professor Elm telling me to go back to the lab.
                                    On the way there, I encountered my rival, Silver. He challenged me to a Pokemon battle in which I won.
                                    Professor Elm told me to continue my journey to the Pokemon league and so I did.
                                    I arrived in Violet City where I went in the Sprout Tower to get the Flash HM and during the battles in the tower, My Wildfire evolved into a Quilava!
                                    I then proceeded to face the Violet City gym in which I easily won thanks to Quilava
                                    I got a call from Professor Elm telling me that I should get the Pokemon Egg from one of his aid, and so I did.
                                    I then proceeded to Route 32 to catch myself a Mareep and I named her Lumière, which means light in French.
                                    I then went through Union Cave and arrived at Azalea Town. I grinded Lumière for a while in the bushes and she evolved into a Flaafy!
                                    I went to see Kurt and in a rush, he went to the Slowpoke Well where he hurt himself
                                    So I had to defeat Team Rocket for him and eventually saved all the Slowpoke down there.
                                    For saving all the Slowpokes, he offered me to make some Balls if I give him apricorns.
                                    I then headed to Ilex Forest and I brought back Farfetch'd to the Cutter's apprentice, and for to thank me, I received a Charcoal & the Cut HM.
                                    I went trough the Ilex Forest and arrived on Route 34 where I caught myself a Drowzee and named it Insomnia.
                                    I took some time to give him some good amount of experience and then proceeded to face the Goldenrod Gym. *gulp* (In which I EASILY won, thanks to Lumière! :D)
                                    Since it was a Saturday, I entered the Bug Catching Contest and caught a level 16 Weedle, in which I named her Syringe
                                    I leveled it up a couple of times so it became a Kakuna and now it's a Beedrill! It's the only Pokemon in my team who reached it's final evolution
                                    I sprinkled water on Sudowoodo and defeated it with Insomnia.
                                    I'm now in Ecruteak City and currently facing the Kimono Girls.
