    Uh-oh, our teams are gonna end up pretty similar. I'm not copying you, I promise . (Not like our teams can be that radically different anyways, the choices are pretty limited)

    First Update for Leaf Green:
    Spoiler:
    -Named myself Brown. Started with Cooper the Squitle for HM use and to make my rival battles easier down the road.
    - Did the starting nonsense, went to Route 22 with my pokeballs and caught the first two members of our team, Snowball the Mankey and Arya the Spearow! Snowball isn’t going to be on the final team, but he’ll be with us for a big chunk of the journey.
    -Trained them up a bit and took out Gary on the same route
    - Arya stuck a bunch of bugs with the pointy end in Viridian Forest
    -Trained up Snowball until he learned Karate Chop, then demolished Brock (thought I took a screen of this, apparently not)
    -Snowball chopped his way through Mt Moon, where we picked up the Dome Fossil near the end (hinthintnudgenudge)
    -Beat up Gary and the rest of the Nugget Bridge.
    -Caught the next member of our team, Horace the Abra, in the grass beside Nugget Bridge. Taught him the Thief TM
    -Babysat Horace along route 25 until he evolved into Kadabra at Lv. 16. Taught Arya the TMs for Attract and Secret Power
    -Horace and Snowball took out Misty together
    -Traded an extra Spearow I caught way back for a Farfetch’d in Vermillion for HM purposes
    -Everyone put on their nautical-themed pashmina afghans and went on the SS Anne to beat up Gary again and get Cut
    -Horace melted Lt. Surge’s face. Taught him Shock Wave for a job well done.


    Update #2:
    Spoiler:

    -I'm really forgetful when it comes to screens this time around it seems like, so I'm not going to do them for the most part.
    -Held off evolving Arya into Fearow until Lv.25 so she could learn Aerial Ace, which she wouldn’t if she evolved sooner (I always found it dumb that you had to do this).
    -Caught a Voltorb (that I forgot to nickname) to tech Flash to get through Rock Tunnel. Snowball evolved into a Primeape at Lv.28 while doing just that.
    -Avoided trainers on the way to Celadon deal with soon with a new member of the team
    -Arya and Horace took out Erika without even breaking a sweat
    -Wait…I’m in Celadon, which means I can get the Tea from that old lady. Which means that…well jeez
    -Took a short field trip to Saffron to take on the Fighting Dojo way sooner than I thought I could to get the member of the team that Snowball was subbing in for, Eddard the Hitmonchan!
    -Eddard single-handedly took out Team Rocket in the Game Corner, catching up to the rest of the team
    -Went up Pokemon Tower where we caught the next member of the team, Rorschach the Cubone! Taught him the Aerial Ace TM.
    -Went back to the trainers on route 8 to take them out with Rorschach. He proceeded to evolve into Marowak at Lv. 28 on Cycling Road
    -Took out all of Silph Co. for the easy XP (all of these things I didn’t know you could do this early!)
    -Horace and Rorschach kicked Koga’s ninja bum. Taught Rorschach Toxic because why not.
    -Did the whole Safari Zone thing, taught Cooper both Surf and Strength
    -Surfed carefully south from Pallet Town, avoiding trainers. Revived the last member of our team in Cinnibar, Syrio the Kabuto! Taught him Surf right away.
    -Babysat Syrio through the trainers we skipped and through the Saffron Gym, which Horace dominated.
    -Taught Syrio Rock Slide in Rock Tunnel, then bought 4000 coins to buy the TM for Ice Beam to teach him.
    -Trained him up to par with the rest of the team on all the trainers I skipped (basically all of the ones on the east side of the map)
    -Evolved Horace into an Alakazam using VBA Link.

      • Beat up Sliph Co and defeated Blue and Giovanni.
      • Took on the Saffron and soloed Sabrina with Reaper's Rock Slide.
      • Flew to Cinnabar Island, and after beating all the trainers on the water, defeated Blaine as well.
      • Did the Sevii Islands quest.
      • Back in Viridian City, I challenged the gym, and Firebeast reached L49, so I evolved him with a Fire Stone into Arcanine!
      • I then beat Giovanni pretty easily with Thrasher and Reaper.
      • After a bit of moveset editing, I defeated Blue and went through Victory Road to the Pokemon League.
      • I got everyone to L52, then challenged the Elite Four.
      • Lorelei was taken care of by Reaper, Esper, and Firebeast.
      • Bruno was defeated by Thrasher and Esper.

              Been a while since I posted, due to laziness and so on

              ► Started Emerald, and soloed with Treecko until I could find Whismur, who got through
              more than half of Hoenn for me. I named it Caramel.
              ► Wattson can go away. Somewhere dark. Joined by Brawly.
              ► After beating the normal man, I got my second team member, HoneyPuff the Jigglypuff.
              ► HoneyPuff and Caramel did all the work until I could Dive. When that happened, I caught
              my third and final team member, Ice Cream the Clamperl.
              ► I evolved it into Gorebyss right away, since Clamperl doesn't learn anything by levelling up. (And I have to say, Gorebyss is amazing)
              ► The rest of Hoenn wasn't difficult. I didn't use Caramel that much, because it didn't
              have that great stats. But it wasn't lacking in levels compared to the other two, since
              it did clear out more than half of Hoenn.
              ► The Elite Four was sorta meh. I almost managed to pull a Rollout sweep on Glacia, but no.
              ► Wallace wasn't difficult, some Thunderbolts and Body Slams here and there and it was over.


              Team:

              Caramel the Whismur, Lv 58 (♀)
              Item: Everstone
              Hyper Voice, Stomp, Shock Wave, Howl


              HoneyPuff the Wigglytuff, Lv 63 (♀)
              Item: None
              Body Slam, Shadow Ball, Rollout, Thunderbolt


              Ice Cream the Gorebyss, Lv 61 (♂)
              Item: None
              Surf, Ice Beam, Psychic, Amnesia

                I'm continuing my Ultimate Brown Monocolor challenge on SoulSilver.

                Update #1 on SoulSilver.
                Name: Brown
                Rival: Silver
                Starter: Cyndaquil
                • After the Mystery Egg quest, I caught Ratti the Rattata on Route 46.
                • After training in the Sprout Tower, I took on Falkner and won thanks to a critical hit Bite and Quick Attack.
                • Went through Union Cave to Azalea Town, where I cleared out Team Rocket from Slowpoke Well.
                • Challenged the gym, where Ratti evolved into Raticate!
                • Bugsy was not hard at all with Hyper Fang.
                • Beat Silver easily and navigated through the forest to Goldenrod City.
                • Played a lot of Voltorb Flip and bought Maximus the Dratini (you get a cookie if you can figure out the dragon reference) as well as an Ice Beam TM.
                • Went north and participated in the Bug-Catching contest, where I caught Breaker the Pinsir.
                • The next day, after numerous tries, I won the Dragon Claw TM from the Dept Store Lottery (Sunday no. 1 prize). Also picked up the Return TM.
                • After training Breaker and Maximus up north, I took on Whitney. Breaker shook off his attraction and dominated with Revenge.
                • Watered the fake tree and caught Petro the Sudowoodo.
                • We marched to Ecruteak City, where we got the Surf HM, then beat Silver and woke the beasts in Burned Tower.
                • Challenged the gym and beat Morty, mostly with Ratti, who used a Chesto Berry and Bite/Crunch to great effect.
                • Saved in Ecruteak City.
                Screens:

                  FINAL UPDATE

                  First up, some apologies:
                  -Sorry for the gap in updates
                  -I actually lost most of my notes for this update so this is just gonna be the E4 update
                  -I accidentally left my Lv.10 Farfetch'd in my party and ended up using him to heal on Agatha. I hope this is alright and doesn't make this invalid :/ (At least he's brown)

                  -Grinded up everyone to at least lv. 50 and then went to the E4
                  -Eddard and Horace took care of Lorelei with relative ease. Eddard's Detect came in useful when Cloyster would Dive
                  -Syrio and Horace 5-shotted Bruno without taking a single hit
                  -Agatha was tough and a complete group effort. Arya deserves special mention for avoidance of Ghost moves and a surprisingly powerful Drill Peck.
                  -Lance was another group effort, with Syrio pulling ahead as being a bit more useful than the rest with Metal Sound and Ice Beam.
                  -Gary was the most group effort-iest of them all by nature, but was still pretty easy

                    Finished Green (on Gold Version)

                    Here's me beating Red.
                    My team was Politoed, Xatu, and Meganium. For any other info you may need, take this, its me soloing the Elite Four with each.

                    Update #2 on SoulSilver.
                    • Moved on to Olivine City and climbed the Lighthouse to get the quest from Jasmine.
                    • Surfed to Cianwood City, where I beat Eusine easily, and Chuck with difficulty, mostly with Breaker.
                    • Got Fly and taught it to Kenya the Spearow (from the guy in Goldenrod).
                    • Healed Amphy and took on Jasmine. Maximus was the star here, although it did take a crit Surf to beat Steelix.
                    • The Safari Zone was now open, so I went there to catch my next team member, Ranger the Kangaskhan.
                    • Taught her Strength and regulated Ratti to HM Slave status.
                    • Made my way to Mahogany Town and went up to Lake of Rage.
                    • Killed the Red Gyarados with Petro then talked to Lance about Team Rocket.
                    • Infiltrated the hideout and laid waste to the fake wannabe ninjas there, then defeated Pryce pretty easily.
                    • Got the call from Elm about the Radio Tower, so I headed back to Goldenrod.
                    • Tried to sneak in the Radio Tower but Silver screwed it up. I then proceeded to beat up everyone there and in the Basement, too.
                    • Finally got rid of Team Rocket once and for all.
                    • Went through the Ice Path to Blackthorn City, and caught Griz the Teddiursa on Route 45.
                    • After beating all the trainers on the Mountain Road, I took on the gym.
                    • Clair was tough but Ranger was able to finish her off.
                    • Got the Rising Badge in Dragon's Den, then found out that Kimono Girls thought I was hot stuff.
                    • First though, I went deep into Mount Mortar, where I found the Karate King, defeated him, and was given Lionel the Tyrogue.
                    • During my hike, Griz evolved into Ursaring!
                    • Trained up Lionel to L20, when he evolved into Hitmonlee!
                    • After some more grinding, I took on the Kimono Girls and barely defeated them.
                    • Surfed to the Whirl Islands, and after fully exploring them, found Lugia and defeated it.
                    • Finally I could get to Victory Road, so I surfed from New Bark Town and manuvered my way there.
                    • Maximus evolved into Dragonair at L45 after learning Dragon Dance, and I defeated Silver at the exit.
                    • After reaching Indigo Plateau, I put my head down and started grinding the rest of my team.
                    • I am just about to take on the Elite Four.

                      Started Platinum.

                      ► Turtwig was the chosen one, so I used him until I got to Floaroma, where I caught Peach the Cherubi.
                      ► Peach took care of all trainers (including Gardenia and Fantina) until I reached Route 209, where Pudding the Chansey was caught. Peach had turned into a Cherrim by this point.
                      ► And on Route 215, I caught Lemonade the Lickitung.
                      ► I trained Pudding and Lemonade on Routes, avoiding Maylene and Crasher Wake. During this time, Lemonade evolved into Lickilicky!
                      ► After some training, I took on Maylene and won.
                      ► Then I headed to Pastoria, where my rival challenged me. When the battle was over, Pudding evolved!
                      ► I challenged Crasher Wake, who wasn't hard to beat.
                      ► Just beat the Galactic Grunt and got the SecretPotion from Cynthia. About to head to Celestic Town.

                      Update #3 on SoulSilver.
                      • After valiantly fighting our way to Lance, I realized we were too underleveled to ever defeat him.
                      • EV trained and grinded everyone some more to L46-47.
                      • Also stole a SilverPowder from a Butterfree in the Bug-Catching Contest for Breaker to hold.
                      • Back at the Pokemon League, none of the Elite Four were too hard this time:
                      • Will was defeated by Petro and Breaker.
                      • Koga was soloed by Petro.
                      • Bruno was soloed by Lionel.
                      • Karen was beaten by Breaker and Maximus.
                      • Then it was time for Lance, who was very difficult to beat. Here's the video and play-by-play of the battle.

                        Rival: Rickard

                        -After the beginning hubabaloo, caught the first real member of the team, Tucker the Hoothoot! Caught another Hoothoot named Knightbus for future HM use
                        -Caught the second member of the team in the Dark Cave, Roy the Geodude (he’s Jordan’s cousin)
                        -Trained up in Sprout Tower, and then Roy proceeded to kick Falkner’s annoying Roosting bum.
                        -Went through That One Cave, saved the Slowpokes in The Other Cave, then Tucker and Roy took turns busting down Bugsy (forgot screenshot)
                        -My rival’s Bayleef can go die in a hole
                        -Tucker evolved into Noctowl just before arriving in Goldenrod
                        -Got to Goldenrod and after 3 ½ HOURS of Voltorb Flip had the coins to purchase the third member of our team, Dany the Dratini and the TM for Thunderbolt to teach her (took a bunch of screens to try my best to prove I didn’t just cheat her or the move in)
                        -Dany and Tucker teamed up and took on Whitney together (Dragon Rage is so OP at this stage of the game)

                          Well wonderful. I updated my Windows the other day to come back and find 90% of my desktop changed. Wonderful. Running some recovery programs right now. All my new roms are gone. Dammit I wanted to keep going with this. I don't want to start over, I was grinding for the elite four. If the recovery doesn't find it then I have no other choice right? Ugh oh well.

                          Sorry about that Tman, hope you find it and are able to continue.

                          SOOO.. I have some big news. If youv'e been following along in the CI&D sticky, some of us have been talking about the fact that legendaries are almost always banned from challenges. Anyway, you can look in the sticky for the discussion, but I have decided to allow legendaries to be used here in the mono-color challenge!

                          Caveats are as follows:
                          • You can only use legendaries that have a BST of under 600.
                          • You can only have one on your team.
                          • You cannot use it until you have 7 badges.
                          • Of course, the color has to match, and it can only be the Pokedex color, even if it's shiny.

                          The list of obtainable legendaries:
                          • Kanto: Legendary Birds
                          • Johto: Legendary Beasts
                          • Hoenn: Legendary Golems
                          • Sinnoh: Lake Guardians
                          • Unova: Legendary Musketeers, as well as Thundurus and Tornadus.

                          There are some other ones that qualify, but they are event only. I am only allowing the ones found normally in the games right now.


                          In other news, I am in Kanto in my Brown mono on SS. I've beaten Surge and Brock and evolved Maximus into Dragonite. the rest of my team is around L50-51. My computer is on the fritz right now and it's not playing the emulator very well, so my next update won't be for a while.

                          Take heart, challengers! use legendaries without fear!

                          For example, HuggerMugger, you could use Entei if you wished.

                            That makes sense, but I don't think it's something I'm gonna take advantage of atm. I feel like Dragonite is going to make this pretty easy as it stands already.

                            the problem for me was that Dragonite evolves so late in the game. You do what you want though.

                            Also, I lied a bit. It seems that I was able to make some solid progress on my Brown monocolor.


                            Update #4 on SoulSilver.
                            • After arriving at home, I got the S.S. Ticket, and headed to Kanto.
                            • Beat all the trainers and found the old guy's granddaughter.
                            • Beat Surge rather easily with Breaker.
                            • Next I caught a Venonat with Compoundeyes ability, then headed down to Route 15 outside Fushia City.
                            • Cuaght a couple Chansey, and one of em had a Lucky Egg.
                            • Used it to explore Kanto, training up my team as I did.
                            • Started with Maximus, evolving him into Dragonite!
                            • Beat the rest of the Kanto gym leaders in order:
                            • Brock was almost soled by Lionel (Hi Jump Kick), but Petro had to kill Kabutops with Wood Hammer.
                            • Misty was also almost soloed by Lionel (Meditate + Hi Jump Kick), but Petro finished off Starmie with Sucker Punch.
                            • Erika was soloed by Lionel's Blaze Kick.
                            • Janine was soled by Maximus' Dragon Claw and Fly attacks.
                            • Sabrina was soloed by Breaker and his X-Scissor.
                            • Blaine was dominated by Petro's Rock Slide.
                            • Now I'm gonna train against the Elite Four before battling Blue.

                              SoulSilver Update #2

                              -Caught the next member of the team, Ulfric the Pinsir (his horns make him look like a Viking), in a bug catching contest (we lost). Taught him Dig
                              -Killed Sudowoodo out of spite. I was going to catch him for HM use, but then he mimicked Dragon Rage and started wrecking everybody.
                              -Pulled the hatched Togepi out of the box to teach it Rock Smash instead
                              -Tucker and Roy are bros. They can take on double battles for days.
                              -I don’t know if you’ve ever used a Noctowl, but every time they come out in battle, they do an animation where they turn their head and look back at you with a super intense expression on their face, almost like saying “You ready? Let’s do this!” It’s very reassuring.
                              -Ulfirc broke the mold and dug his way to victory against the trainers leading up to Morty, and then tag teamed the man himself with Tucker. Taught Tucker the TM for Shadow Ball we were awarded.
                              -Beat up All The Things, including but not limited to: The Lighthouse, Eusine, Chuck (actually a more difficult battle than I expected, with Dany coing through for me in the end), the trainers leading up to the Safari Zone (during which Roy evolved into Graveler), and Jasmine (ridiculously close, came down to throwing a slave in there to Revive Dany)
                              -This is certainly a challenge this time around so far, that’s for sure.

                                -Killed Red Gyarados just to get some use out of the Thunderbolt TM I spent forever to get
                                -Bro’d it up with Lance’s sorry hacking bum (who does he think he is with his lv. 40 Dragonite?) to beat up Team Rocket again, during which Dany evolved into Dragonair!
                                -Ulfric proceeded to break a bunch of bricks in Pryce’s face
                                -Went and grabbed the Exp Share from Mr. Pokemon to use relatively soon
                                -Apparently the Rocket uniform is too tight to be able to pedal a bike properly
                                -Saved the Radio Tower, during which Tucker learned his first flying special move Air Slash, and Roy learned Earthquake like the boss he is
                                -Went through That One Cold Cave, then went to route 45 to catch the 5th and final member of our team, Ser Jorah the Teddiursa. Taught him Shadow Claw, Taunt and Strength right away and trained him up on the route that we found him on
                                -Evolved Roy into Golem for the fun of it
                                -Trained Ser Jorah up to Lv. 34 on trainer rematches, during which of course he evolved into an Ursaring. Taught him Avalanche
                                -Ser Jorah and Dany cleared the way to Clair, which in itself was a team effort which was made relatively easy to some lucky para-hax and some Hydro Pump misses

                                Final Update (#4) on SoulSilver.
                                • Before training against the Elite Four, I battled Silver for the last time and won easily.
                                • Beat the Elite Four a few times, then challenged Blue and won with a team effort.
                                • Took on the Elite Four with their upgraded teams. Lance was a pain to fight but I won thanks to some lucky crits.
                                • After some more training and using Rare Candies to get everyone to L72, I climbed Mt. Silver, where Red was waiting.
                                • Here's the video and play-by-play of the fight:

                                    Been a while since I posted, but here we go:

                                    ♦ Made my way to Celestic Town and beat up Cyrus. Got Surf, and started doing some sidequests.
                                    ♦ After that was done, I went to Canalave where my rival challenged me. I beat him and moved on to the Gym.
                                    ♦ Byron was hard to take down, because I didn't have anything that would be super effective against his Pokémon. I had to depend on Peach with Leech Seed and Petal Dance. Eventually, Byron was taken down.
                                    ♦ Then I started doing the lake quests, and beat up Saturn and Lake Valor. It was then time to re-visit Twinleaf, just to take down Mars at Lake Verity.
                                    ♦ After that, I went to Mt. Coronet to pick up a Feebas. No luck the first day, but they popped up on the second day, so I caught a bunch and chose a Modest one. Named it Strawberry.
                                    ♦ Bought some Poffins at the Veilstone Department Store to max Strawberry's beauty. Then I leveled it up, and it became a Milotic!
                                    ♦ The rest of Sinnoh was a piece of cake. Just before I was about to challenge the Elite Four, I got a sudden urge to use Mesprit, with the new rule and all. And since I still had the Master Ball in my possession, it didn't take long at all to get. Named it Mango.
                                    ♦ Took down the rival, the Elite Four and Cynthia!

                                      -Hung out with some nice Japanese ladies, one of which has a bugger of a Vaporeon that took hits for days
                                      -Tucker and Roy, the bros that they are, killed Lugia because I couldn’t be bothered to care too much about it
                                      -Caught a goddamn legit shiny Tentacool surfing east from New Bark Town. #swag
                                      -Killed all the trainers leading up to Victory Road and our rival in The Cave itself with no issue. Taught the TM for Earthquake we found in The Cave to Ulfric.
                                      -Went on a time-travelling world tour to visit a bunch of the Week siblings to get some hold items
                                      -PAINSTAKINGLY, PAINFULLY grinded up everyone to around level 48 on rematches, in Victory Road, and on E4 suicide runs. No, really, it sucked a lot, that’s why I haven’t posted in a while, I just didn’t want to do it : /
                                      -We got through the E4 in probably the least graceful fashion possible with plenty of item use, but I just wanted to get it over with. Didn’t really pay attention who was taking care of who, seemed like mostly a team effore, but I think Tucker and Ser Jorah were the main stars. Geeeeeeez, I’m only halfway through this run.
