You are going to find it hard in this challenge, Mainly because there are only like 2 ice types you can get in Platinum and 1 you have to trade in I think. Which means you will need to hack in a Glaceon to complete your challenge.

Flint is going to be tough on you! :D

Update 1:

Bug Monotype on Fire Red

So, I picked Charmander as my starter. Ventured out, caught a Caterpie and Weedle. I then released Charmander so I wasn't tempted to use him. I trained my Caterpie and Weedle to eventually evolve into Kakuna, Metapod and then soon after Butterfree, Beedrill.

Entered the Pewter City Gym and challenged the trainer, beat him with ease using Butterfree's Confusion as he failed to pull off any Rock-type moves.

I then went on to face Brock. Butterfree took care of the Geodude in the same way as the trainer, with Confusion. Butterfree was then KO'ed by Onix's Rock Tomb and Beedrill was sent out. It was very close, but Beedrill turned out the victor after somehow surviving 2 turns of Rock Tomb.

Update 2:

Bug Monotype on Fire Red

Managed to defeat all trainers on Route 3, training my Pokemon. Mt. Moon was a slight pain but caught a Paras and taught it Bullet Seed with the TM at the start of the cave. Paras was able to single-handedly defeat all trainers in the cave.

Arrived at Cerulean and headed straight for the Gym, defeated both trainers before facing Misty. Misty posed a threat, however Paras OHKO'd Staryu with Bullet Seed and almost defeated Starmie with the same move. Beedrill switched in and Fury Attacked Starmie to finish it off. Misty defeated.

Don't be discouraged by what LMFAO said. There's definitely more than two ice types in Platinum. I can think of five off the top of my head. Anyway, you can't hack any pokeomon in since eevee can be obtained before the third gym. I know it will suck playing with just an eevee for a while, but that's just how things are sometimes.

He can't evolve that Eevee until the last gym so what is the point in even doing it as an Ice challenge.



Also the only Ice types would be:

Glaceon,
Mamoswine,
Glalie,
Froslass.

Actually after Regice you can only get those a few ice types so I wasn't wrong.

EXACTLY. You can get 1 before the 3rd gym (Eevee counts) and most of the rest later, BEFORE postgame. So no, you're still wrong, because if he follows your advice and hacks in something, that run is disqualified.

    Dear LMFAO. Word up.
    I have ultimate say and have already given my decision. Everyone else has provided evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. Further attempts to argue about an ice platinum run, which you aren't even doing, will result in a report to the mods. Thank you and good day.

    Love, NecrumWarrior

    What are you going to report to the mods? the fact I was trying to point out some major flaws in the attempt and was giving some advice on the matter and how big headed do you have to be to use the words "ultimate say". It's a damn challenge people do for fun get over yourself.

    Stop fighting. NecrumWarrior is right, LMFAO. He's running the challenge and if hacking isn't allowed, it's not allowed and that's that. There are plenty of Ice types for the challenge. Not a full team of 6, but the rules don't require that. I don't want to have to come back to this again.

    The debate was never because of hacking, it was the fact he said he can use Eevee for an Ice challenge and it wouldn't evolve until he gets to the last gym, which means he has to play near enough the whole game with a pokemon which isn't the type he chose.

    Doesn't matter. He's running it, it's his say. If someone doesn't like having to do this, switch games or types or something. That was even in the rules before he took over, if I recall, so I can't blame him for adopting the previous rules.

      You need to replay gen 4 in that case. Eevee evolves into Glaceon at route 217, which is prior to 2 to 4 gyms. Not to mention you can get like 3 pokemon there. You get the good rod at Hearthome. Meaning once you get there, if he's willing to backtrack, he can get 2 pokemon into his party. You're not even overexaggerating, you've gone so far beyond that, that there's no word for it..

      This guy is still moaning where is his warning?

      Also go check where route 217 is before you start stating things...

      Stop. Anymore of this argument after this post is getting deleted and possibly infracted. This shouldn't have to be such an issue. And Griffinbane is a girl.

        I have a question. What if Ellipsai were to hack in that Eevee earlier on so she could just use it from the start instead of waiting until she gets to Hearthome City? I ask this because I like to do that, I don't like using other pokemon at all for my challenges that I'm not going to use for my final team.

        An example would be, when I start emerald for my ultimate bug challenge I plan to hack Wurmple as my starter so I can use it for all the beginning stuff. Wurmple is the earliest catchable bug type so I wouldn't be bringing another pokemon earlier so I can have Wurmple and, let's say a Nincada. I would just making it so I can have that 1 Wurmple a little earlier than normal and I would catch all the other bug pokemon normally.

        And Ellipsai don't worry about not having enough pokemon for your team, you can get Abomasnow, Weavile, Mamoswine, Froslass, Glalie, Glaceon, and Jynx (post-game), thats more then enough for a team of 6. I should know, I played platinum for the sinnoh part of my ultimate ice challenge. I hope you go through with it, sure you get most of your members later on, but its a fun challenge.

          So uh...did the owner of the thread see my challenge posting near the bottom of the last page (Page 26). The long conversation that happened might have covered it up. If it was seen but not posted, I apologize. I was just making sure that my challenge was noticed. Oh and a question, is there a minimum amount of pokemon for a mono-type run?

            Wow guys, you had so many posts in the last few hours! I just want to say to James 901, that hacking in an early pokemon earlier (like a Wurmple starter in Emerald) is still hacking. The point is to play with the challenge rules in mind. Like Sydian said, choose a different game/type if you don't want to deal with it.

            And if someone really wants to hack in an Ice pokemon at the beginning of a Sinnoh game, they can play Diamond or Pearl. Eevee isn't in those games until after the E4, so you can hack in one ice pokemon at the beginning.
