-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.
One thing I would suggest that really helped me in my Brown SS run was: I caught a venonat up on rt 24 (above cerulean city) that had the compoundeyes ability. Then I went to route 15 (east of fushia city), put the venonat first, and searched a bunch until I saw chansey (1% encounter chance). Compoundeyes raises the probability of wild pokemon having held items by 50% (venonat doesn't have to be alive either). Chansey will then have a 55% chance of holding a Lucky Egg, which gives your pokemon holding it an exp boost. I had to find 2 Chansey before I got one, but it saved on a lot of grief later on.

Now on to my real post...



I continued my Brown Ultimate Monocolor in the Hoenn region:

Update #1 on Ruby.

Name: Brown
Starter: Treeko
  • After the beginning stuff, I caught Locke the Seedot (of Nuzlocke fame).
  • He beat Roxanne easily with Bullet Seed, and right after the battle, he evolved into Nuzleaf!
  • Then I traded for Makit the Makuhita in Rustboro.
  • Saved the Goods from the Magma Grunt and got the PokeNav, then caught a ride to Dewford Town.
  • Caught Esper the Abra in Granite Cave, and after training him up he evolved into Kadabra!
  • Brawly went down easily to Esper's Confusion.
  • Got ferried to Slateport and delivered the Goods, then moved on to Mauville, beating May along the way.
  • Beat all the trainers around the city, and Makit evolved into Hariyama!
  • Wattson was pretty tough, but Esper was able to break through Magneton eventually.
  • Caught Smokey the Torkoal in the Fiery Path, then continued on through Fallarbor Town and Meteor Falls.
  • Beat Maxie on Mt. Chimney, then hopped down to Lavaridge Town.
  • Beat Flannery pretty easily with Smokey's Curse & Body Slam.
  • Saved after entering the desert.

    Yeah, that'd be nice. I might end up doing it depending on where I am after the gym leader rematches and how I feel after repeating the E4 ad nauseum. It'd be nice if you're lazy like me and don't want to actually catch the Chansey because you could teach the Venonat Theif

    SoulSilver Update #5

    -Took the quick trip on the SS Anne, then Roy and Ulfric utterly destroyed Lt. Surge
    -Got to Saffron, and got Mr. Psychic to teach Tucker his namesake
    -Ulfric dominated Sabrina by himself without taking a hit, the beast that he is.
    -Took a stroll down the east coast to get to Fuchsia City, where everyone (except Dany) took turns beating up Jasmine, mostly because her Venomoth turned out to be more of a pain than expected
    -Flew back up to Saffron, rode west to Celadon, where Ser Jorah and Tucker took on Erika with no issue. Ursarings are absolute beasts, Avalanche isn’t even STAB and it one-shot a Victreebel 2 or 3 levels higher than it.
    -Did some training on the Cycling Road and north of Cerulean where Dany FINALLY reached Lv. 55 and evolved into Dragonite!
    -Found a hidden Heart Scale in Vermillion, flew back to Blackthorn, went to the Move Relearner and taught Dany Thunderpunch. Also taught her the Dragon Claw TM I found on the way to Victory Road because I’m tired of Dragon Rush’s accuracy (or rather, lack thereof)
    -Saved the Power Plant, then Dany, Ulfric, and Tucker took out Misty
    -Killed a Snorlax, went through A Cave, then Ser Jorah, Dany, and Ulfric took out Brock. Taught Roy Rock Slide.
    -Sailed south from Pallet, took out Blaine with Roy and Dany (that Magmar got pretty annoying with Confuse Ray)
    -Ser Jorah, Roy, and Dany took out Blue valiantly

    SoulSilver Update #6

    -Did another one of my time-travelling world tours to wrangle up all of the Gym Leaders into the Fighting Dojo for rematches, after which everyone was around Lv. 60
    - Bought up some items and decided to go straight for the E4 rematch
    -Roy and especially Ulfirc completely obliterated Will this time around
    -Roy, Tucker, and Ulfric took out Koga, with Muk being quite annoying but nothing more
    -Bruno turned out to be much tougher than I was expecting, with Tucker’s Reflect being the true hero of the fight
    -Karen was one of the easier fights, with Ulfric running the show accompanied by Roy and Ser Jorah
    -Lance was not the greatest fight at all, I probably used more items than moves, but when I wasn’t healing I was taking things out in one or two shots, which is alright I guess

    Probably gonna put this challenge on the backburner and move on while I gather up the willpower to grind up those levels to take on Red. I'll at the very latest finish it before I start Gen V.

      Sorry for the double post, but this one is gonna be a big one, that includes a whole new run, so....



      SoulSilver FINAL UPDATE

      -Grinded everyone up to Lv.72. Pretty painful, but getting my hands on a Lucky Egg helped out quite a bit
      -The Red fight was a lot of luck and a lot of item use. My main strategy was to get a Sandstorm up at the very beginning and then praying for Blizzard misses. EVeryone played their part

      Ultimate Monocolor Brown Ruby First and FINAL update! :D:D:D

      Name: Sienna (went with a girl this time)
      Starter: Reginald the Mudkip

      -After the starting things, caught the first real member of the team on Route 102, Scherzo the Seedot! Also caught Zach the Zigzagoon for HM purposes
      -Reginald pretty much has to babysit Scherzo until we learn a new attacking move other than Bide, cause Bide is too risky for my liking
      -Caught a Slakoth in Petalburg Woods to trade in Rustboro for Makit the Makuhita
      -Got Makit up to Lv. 14 then took on Roxanne. It was a bit rough because he was ignoring orders, but it got done
      -Realized Bullet Seed wasn’t the item behind the bush on Route 104 but obtained from the guy by the flower shop. Taught it to Scherzo nonetheless.
      -Scherzo evolved into Nuzleaf going towards The Tunnel
      -Sailed to Dewford and went to Granite Cave where we saw the return of our good friend Horace the Abra!
      -Went blindly through the cave to talk to Steven, took a quick trip back up to Rustboro to get the Exp Share to slap on Horace till he evolves
      -Sailed to Slateport to train on the trainers there, then finished up back in Granite Cave where Horace evolved into Kadabra and learned Confusion
      -Horace then proceeded to utterly decimate Brawly and his Gym. Taught Makit Bulk Up.
      -Got up to Mauville and tried to take on the Gym right away. Big mistake.
      -While training up on the routes around it, Makit evolved into Hariyama, who then proceeded to take on Wattson by himself. Taught Horace Shock Wave.
      -Caught the next member of our team, Thomas the Torkoal, in Fiery Pass
      -Got to Fallarbor, went to That Cave, beat up That Boss Guy on The Mountain, went to Lavaridge
      -Thomas and Makit took out Flannery with no issue
      -Norman was simple as anything with Thomas’ Protect
      -Caught Airbus the Tropius for very-near-future HM use
      -Saved the Weather Place, killed Brendan
      -Winona was actually pretty tough, ended up coming down to Thomas using Iron Defense.
      -Found the Leaf Stone on route 119 and evolved Scherzo into Shiftry. Taught him Aerial Ace.
      -Dealt with some Team Magma Things at Mt. Pyre and their hideout.
      -Beat Tate & Liza with some difficulty
      -Since that was the seventh gym, got a Wailmer up to Lv. 40 so it evolved, caught a Relincath, then went to do the silly things I needed to do to catch the last member of the team, Regirock (who I forgot to nickname )! Used the Master Ball cause I’m lazy
      -Scherzo, Makit, and Horace took out Wallace with little issue.
      -Victory Road was actually kind of rough to get through.
      -VBA Linked me an Alakazam
      -Grinded everyone up to Lv. 55, which didn’t take too too long with the Speed button on the emulator
      -Then we took on the E4! Sidnet got utterly demolished by Makit, Thomas, and Scherzo
      -Phoebe got crushed by Scherzo, Makit, and Regirock
      -Glacia was taken out by Makit and Horace
      -Drake was a team effort, with Regirock pulling out ahead slightly to be the MVP
      -Steven was pretty easy, with Makit being the MVP but everyone played their part

      • Beat Winona easily with Esper and Smokey.

      • Beat May with Rager, and while climbing Mt Pyre and clearing out the Magma Hideout, Rager evolved into Dodrio!
      • Surfed over to Mossdeep City and beat Tate and Liza with Locke, Rager, and Smokey.
      • Surfed down to Rt 129, where I caught a Wailord after a while, then dove for a Relicanth.

        Completed White today:

        ♦ Beat the first gym with Oshawott and then caught Grapefruit the Munna and Chocolate the Audino as team members.
        ♦ Chocolate & Grapefruit were complete bosses and got through a large portion of Unova without trouble. I evolved Grapefruit after it had learned Psychic.
        ♦ After getting Surf, I captured the third team member; Watermelon the Alomomola.
        ♦ The rest of Unova wasn't any trouble either. My team was a little higher than Lv 50 when I reached the Elite Four.
        ♦ Shauntal was easily taken down, Caitlin and Marshal didn't put up much of a fight either. Grimsley was annoying though.
        ♦ N and Ghetsis were easily taken down by the whole team.
        ♦ The postgame wasn't too exciting. I wanted to catch a Porygon for the team, but it never happened because the special dude in White Forest you need to
        talk to in order for them to appear wasn't there.
        ♦ When the postgame was done, I challenged and beat the Elite Four and Alder!

        Final Update (#3) on Ruby.
        • Cleared out the Seafloor Cavern and beat Maxie with Monolith.
        • After killing Groudon, I took on the gym and swept Wallace with Locke's Growth + Giga Drain.
        • Leveled up Locke to L49, when he learned Extrasensory, then evolved with a Leaf Stone into Shiftry!
        • After beating the rest of the trainers before Victory Road and dong some EV training, I went through Victory Road.
        • After doing some moveset editing and using Rare Candies to get everyone to L52, I challenged the Elite Four.
        • Sidney was swept by Monolith (Return, Superpower).
        • Pheobe was taken out by Locke, Smokey, and Rager.
        • Glacia was another sweep, this time by Makit (Bulk Up, Brick Break).
        • Drake was swept as well by Esper, who set up 2 Calm Minds against Shelgon (Rock Tomb missed 2x), then dominated with Psychic.
        • Finally, Steven was up. He was tough, especially his Metagross. Here's the video and play-by-play of the fight:

            By the way, Yellow will be my next color. I'll do LeafGreen > HeartGold (gonna try it again, and if it doesn't work, Crystal) > Sapphire > Platinum > Black.

              I started the Sinnoh leg of my Brown monocolor a couple days ago, here's what I've done so far.


              Update #1 on Platinum.

              Name: Brown
              Rival: Barry
              Starter: Chimchar
              • Picked Chimchar, named him Mars.
              • On the way to Oreburgh City, Mars evolved into Monferno!
              • Then I caught a Machop and traded for Kazza the Abra.
              • Mars defeated Roark easily with Mach Punch.
              • On the way up to Florama Town, Kazza evolved into Kadabra!
              • Kazza defeated Mars in the Windworks, and we moved on through the forest to to Eterna City.
              • Gardenia was easy to beat with Mars's Flame Wheel.
              • Then we infiltrated the TG Etern Building, with Mars beating Jupiter (having a Mars on my team is confusing, lol).
              • Got the Bike and went across Cycling Road, then on through MT. Coronet to Hearthome City.
              • Took on the gym, and Fantina was defeated by Kazza and Mars.
              • Moved on to Solaceon Town after beating Barry, and I caught Sammy the Staravia on Route 210.
              • Beat a bunch of trainers I skipped earlier, including Wayward Cave. Saved in the Solaceon Ruins.

                Sooooo I totally intend to finish my Brown run, but while I was watching the TheSpeedGamer's marathon last week I started a Red Monocolor on FireRed because it lagged a whole lot less with the livestream running in the background.

                Pokemon Monocolor Red Ultimate FireRed 1st and FINAL Update:


                Name: Red
                Starter: Aerys the Charmander
                Rival: Green

                -Aerys is gonna be are only buddy for the first part of this game, so say hi!
                -Did all the starting stuff, went through the forest, got Aerys up to Lv.14 and beat Brock without a whole lot of issue thanks to Metal Claw
                -Aerys evolved into Charmeleon at Lv.16 on Route 3
                -Got through Mt. Moon, catching Campbell the Paras for HM purposes in the process
                -Got to Cerulean, beat Nugget Bridge, then caught the second member of the team, Margaery the Oddish on Route 24. Taught her Bullet Seed.
                -Got Margaery up to Lv. 20 and then took on Misty. Margaery took care of most of it, but Starmie got a lucky crit so Aerys had to finish the job
                -Forgot I had a Rare Candy to use, so I used it on Margaery to get her to Lv.21, who proceed to evolve into Gloom
                -Did the whole SS Anne thing, got Cut, backtracked to Cerulean, went east to Route 10 and caught the third member of the team, Young Neil the Voltorb!
                -Lt. Surge was pretty annoying with Raichu’s Double Team. It was funny though, because he actually died by hitting Paras who was switched in to revive Margaery and he got poisoned from Paras’ Effect Spore
                -Went and got Flash, went through the Rock Tunnel, went down to route 12 thinking I could get the super rod right away, and even though I was mistaken, Young Neil evolved into Electrode in the process
                -Skipped most of the trainers on our way to Celadon, but once we got there we got our fourth team member, Gideon the Eevee. Taught him Dig.
                -Went to the Dept. Store, bought a Fire Stone and a Leaf Stone, and evolved Gideon and Margaery into Flareon and Vileplume respectively!
                -Aerys destroyed Erika. Taught Margaery Giga Drain.
                -Beat up Team Rocket, saved the tower, got the Poke Flute, beat up a Snorlax, got the Super Rod
                -Took a detour through Saffron, got the TM for Psychic, went north of Cerulean, caught a Poliwhirl with the Super Rod, traded him in town for the final member of the team, Zynx the Jynx! Tagught her Psychic and Water Pulse
                -Bought the coins at the game corner to buy Flamethrower to teach to Gideon
                -Beat up Team Rocket again at Silph Co., during which Aerys evolved into Charizard at Lv.36
                -Got to Fuchsia via Cycling Road, then Zynx proceeded to demolish Koga
                -Did the whole Safari Zone thing, then went up to Saffron and took out Sabrina with Gideon and Zynx
                -Had enough money to go buy the TM for Thunderbolt at the Game Corner to teach to Young Neil
                -Did the stuff on Cinnibar, including taking out Blaine with a group effort between all the team members that weren’t weak to Fire.
                -Dealt with what needed to be dealt with on the Side Quest Islands
                -Zynx absolutely demolished Giovanni
                -Got through Victory Road with no issue
                -Grinded everyone up to Lv.55, then took on the E4!

                -Lorelei was kind of a pain, cause Young Neil doesn’t have the greatest of Special Attack
                -Zynx utterly humiliated Bruno
                -Agatha wasn’t as easy as it would have been with a STAB dark move. Aerys’s Attract helped out quite a bit though
                -Zynx and Young Neil took out Lance with no issue at all
                -Green was taken out with no problem, the fight being theteam effort it’s meant to be

                  Update #2 on Platinum.
                  • Explored the Solaceon Ruins and got Defog, then scaled Lost Tower as well.
                  • Moved on to Veilstone City, and Sammy evolved into Staraptor!
                  • Maylene was easily defeated by Sammy's Aerial Ace and Close Combat.
                  • Helped Dawn out and got Fly, then went south to Pastoria City.
                  • A couple things happened along the way: I caught a Hippopotas named Tank, and Mars evolved into Infernape!
                  • Caught Jetsie the Buizel just outside Pastoria, and soon after, she evolved into Floatzel!
                  • Caught a Yanma with Compouneyes in the Great Marsh, then searched Route 210 for Chansey, and after a couple encounters, got myself a Lucky Egg!
                  • Took on the gym and defeated Wake with Sammy and Mars.
                  • Team Plasma was blowing stuff up, so I chased down the Grunt then met up with Cynthia.
                  • Made my way to Celestic Town, and Tank evolved into Hippowdon!
                  • Beat Cyrus easily with Sammy, and got the Surf HM.
                  • Then I evolved Kazza into Alakazam, and saved after that.

                    Completed the Kanto section of my Yellow run.

                    ♦ Started by getting Squirtle for HM slaving, and later on catching a Weedle that I named Kurapika.
                    ♦ While going through Viridian Forest, Kurapika evolved twice and proceeded to take on Brock. Harden helped a lot.
                    ♦ Went through Mt. Moon, and caught Killua the Sandshrew outside. Trained both Kurapika and Killua on Nugget Bridge and Route 25 before taking on Misty, who was handled by Kurapika.
                    ♦ Made my way down to Vermilion, raided the S.S. Anne (Killua evolved), beat Lt. Surge, went through Rock Tunnel and caught Mito the Vulpix shortly after.
                    ♦ Trained Mito and evolved her when she had learnt Flamethrower, so she could take care of Erika and the Rockets with ease.
                    ♦ Skipped a lot of trainers on Cycling Road, to get to Fuchsia as fast as possible. Went to the Safari Zone and caught Gon the Exeggcute, who completed the team.
                    ♦ Trained Gon up a little, and then evolved him.
                    ♦ Nothing exciting really happened after that, I beat Gym Leaders and my rival. Eventually, it was time for the Elite Four and Champion, who were pretty difficult to beat, but I managed to pull it off.

                    I would've had a video for the Champion battle, but the video file got screwed up...also, gonna do SoulSilver next even though I said HeartGold, but I don't think that matters too much.

                      Question! I read this and started wondering, can I do this on Touhoumon? It's a hack that replaces pokemon with, well, touhou. I think they still have colors, so I wanna know if I can still do the challenge here.

                      EDIT: Yeah, I confirmed that they do have colors.

                        Ultimate Monocolor Purple Challenge/LP FireRed Update #1

                        I'm also kiiiiiiiind of putting the Brown Run on hold for now (I know, ADD much?) to try out an LP of an Ultimate Purple Run. It's something I've wanted to try out for a while, but only now figured out a way that I wanted to do it, if that makes sense.

                        Here is a link to my thread in the LP subforum, and here is a link to my FireRed playlist on youtube.

                        I'm a bit backlogged on videos, I actually just finished up the Pokémon Tower, with this team:

                              White/Blue Monocolor Part 1:

                              -Got Indigo to level 10 before actually leaving Nuvema Town
                              -Finally left and came across Bianca and Cheren, taught them the power of Indigo :D
                              -I decided to train some more got Indigo
                              to level 16 :)
                              -Then I went to the gym and breezed through it :)
                              -Now I'm about to go to Wellspring Cave and capture a nice Roggenrola and maybe a Woobat(for now :p)

                              White/Blue Monocolor Part 2:

                              -Well got Indigo to level 17 and it evolved into a Dewott
                              -I then got into Wellspring Cave and got a female Woobatthat I named Blueberry
                              -I also caught a Roggenrola and I named him Cobalt

                              -After all that I took all my Pokes down to Nacrene to get them healed
                              -I decided to bypass the gym for now, so that I could pick up a Sawk
                              -I caught a little Tympole that I named Toadie
                              -The Sawk ended up being a really rare spawn from the shaking grass in outer Pinwheel so by the time I came across one all of my Pokes were level 25 and had all evolved -_-
                              -Since I like having my pokemon the same level I went on an Audino battling spree!
                              -So now my team consists of:

                              -Indigo 25 Dewott
                              -Blueberry 25 Swoobat

                                Someone mentioned to me in irc today that you allow legenaries, so this gives me an excuse to use Regice, which I've been DYING to do.

                                I plan on using Swampert, Chimecho, Heracross, Lanturn, Regice, and Altaria. I might use Tailow and Loudred for a while too, because that'd be a long time to go without another party member. idk yet. Question though, if I end up searching for DAYS for Chimecho, am I allowed to trade one in? If not, that's fine. I found 5% encounter rate Riolu and Eevee in Black 2, I can survive another Chimecho search.

                                I don't have a problem with that, since you asked so nicely, but at least give it some effort, lol.

                                I will be updating my brown challenge soon, just gonna beat Volkner first.

                                  I forgot to mention that you can't use him until after the 7th gym. You might have seen that in the rules already, but I don't want to get in trouble for giving you false information lol.

                                  Thanks JD! I mean, if I go a day without finding one, I'll draw the line and trade one. Though I hate getting out the old GBAs and fiddling with the cord. And thanks Huggermugger. I saw that rule, but you can only get Regice after 7th badge anyway. ;) Good planning on my part, right? lolol Anyway, about to start. Oddly enough, this ties in with my Pick Up and Play challenge, as I have Ruby next on the list. Yay.


                                  Player: Alice
                                  Game: Ruby
                                  Color: Blue
                                  Badges: 3

                                  Aqua Grunt Alice knows deep down that what she's fighting for is wrong, but felt compelled to join from family pressures. Her parents were ex-Rocket Grunts, and some estranged family members were a part of Team Magma. Aside from that, it was the only way she would be able to leave the house and fulfill her real dream-- to collect the 8 badges of Hoenn and meet the legendary Pokemon that roams the region. The Pokemon offered by Team Aqua weren't quite up to par with her standards, and she has taken a liking to blue Pokemon. To enter gyms with her blue themed team, she disguises herself in red. She often has had to disarm Team Magma, while in both disguise and uniform, as well. Even though she's not fond of her job, at least she can say she's doing it better than her fellow grunts.

                                  • Skipped Iron Island for later and went to try and foil TG's lake plot.

                                  • Went up to the blizzard on Route 217, where I caught Manny the Swinub.

                                  • Candice was harder than I though she was going to be, but eventually I took her down.
                                  • After seeing Barry got beat at the lake, I went to Veilston City to beat up TG once and for all.
