Update 3:

Bug Monotype on Fire Red

Before getting onto the S.S. Anne, I battled a few trainers and Paras evolved into a Parasect I then got myself into the S.S. Anne. So, I had to make my way around the S.S. Anne to get Cut, and I did so. Surprisingly, Butterfree's Confusion and Sleep Powder combo defeated everyone and also KO'ed all of Gary's Pokemon. I got to the Captain and received Cut, taught it to Beedrill and managed to get into the Vermillion Gym. I only had to battle the guy by the electric link fence as the switches were located on the bins in the first row. I easily defeated the trainer and then found myself up against Lt. Surge. Parasect took care of Voltorb and Pikachu; when Raichu was sent out I switched in Butterfree so it was able to put it to sleep only to switch back to Parasect and defeat Raichu. 3 Pokemon so far, going well and now headed for Venomoth.

    Dang...so many posts! well anyways, I am signing up for an Ultimate Mono-type Water Challenge!

    Sign-up sheet:

    Username: diamondmutt1111 (in game is Brooke)
    Type: Water
    Challenge: Ultimate
    Games: Blue, Crystal, Sapphire, Platinum, Black

    What I have decided to do for my Mono-type Challenges (yes, I am doing an Ultimate for each type) is in order to mix it up a bit, each Mono-type Challenge will have 1 Trainer (meaning the Player is always named _____ , ex: Brooke or Joey). I have actually started Crystal and I just beat Bugsy. My team consists of:


    Godzilla the Female Croconaw
    (a female starter??? O_O)


    HerpDerp the Male Wooper
    (gonna change his name to Ralph)


    Floopy the Male Slowpoke

    I hope it's ok I started with Crystal instead of Blue. More to come once I beat Morty.

      Update #1, For my rock type mono challenge in firered.
      Chose Charmander so rival would pick squirtle, rushed to mt.moon
      Caught Geodude, raised him up a bit, boxed the now Charmeleon.
      Mt.moon was easy, cerulean city not so much. Evolved Geodude to Graveler, beat rival, (could not beat him until geodude was graveler, squirtle water gun was a one shot)
      Even in the late 20s Graveler was still getting one shot by misty, went to Vermillion, defeated all trainers there, Graveler was in the mid 30s by now.
      Went back to cerulean defeated misty, graveler surived one water pulse then one shot starmie.
      Caught an Onix, trained him up a bit, taught him dig, he sweeped the 3rd gym easily.
      Went through rock tunnel, was actually a bit tough with all those poke maniac, slowpokes.
      Got to lavender town, faced rival, beat him easily.
      Evolved Graveler into a Golem.
      Team so far:
      Level 27 Docile Onix:
      Moves: Tackle, Screech, Dig, Rock Throw

      Level 40 Lax Golem:
      Moves: Mega Punch, Selfdestruct, Magnitude, Rock Throw

      Onto Celadon...

      I've gotten quite a bit done since my last update. I caught a Deerling and leveled it up to be even with the rest of my team. Then I defeated Team Plasma at the Cold Storage and then I defeated Clay, earning my fifth gym badge. I continued on to Route 6, defeating Bianca first. I quickly went to Chargestone Cave, where I caught my final team member, Ferroseed. Before moving on I went ahead and evolved Servine, Cottonee, and Deerling into Serperior, Whimsicott, and Sawsbuck as I trained Ferroseed and evened out my team's levels. Once I did that, I quicky went through Chargestone Cave and defeated N once I got to the end. Next I went through Mistralton to Route 7 to find Skyla at Celestial Tower. Then I went back to Mistralton and took on Skyla, defeating her and earning my sixth badge. Next I went to Twist Mountain after defeating Cheren, and was able to quickly make my way through because of the snow. However, I managed to evolve Ferroseed into Ferrothorn before I left. Once I got to Icirrus I made my way straight to the gym where I surprisingly defeated Brycen fairly easily. As soon as I walked outside I was confronted with the news about Team Plasma, and I did the mandatory evil-team quest as I have in every previous generation about this time. I sped through Dragonspiral Tower and the Relic Castle so I could move on with the Gym challenge, and I visited Nacrene City before continuing my travels on Route 8. I quickly slid my way across the route and ran through Tubline Bridge, but not before defeating Bianca. I sneaked my way past the trainers on Route 9 and went straight to the gym once I made it to Opelucid City. The gym wasn't too difficult, but it wasn't very easy either. However, I made it out with my final gym badge of my entire challenge! I made my way through the first half of Route 10, but stopped before battling Cheren so I could Audino grind a little bit (which is what I'm doing as I am typing). I'm getting the whole team up to level 47 right now and if I feel like it I may give them all a few more levels before moving on. Here is the team right now (disregard the uneven levels):

      Serperior / Lv47 / Leaf Blade, Strength, Aerial Ace, Giga Drain
      Leavanny / Lv44 / X-Scissor, Leaf Blade, Shadow Claw, Poison Jab
      Whimsicott / Lv47 / Giga Drain, Shadow Ball, Energy Ball, Hurricane
      Sawsbuck / Lv44 / Jump Kick, Faint Attack, Horn Leech, Megahorn
      Ferrothorn / Lv47 / Power Whip, Iron Head, Gyro Ball, Bulldoze

      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.
      No go, sorry but hacking in a Pokemon is not allowed unless a Pokemon of your type, or that evolves into your type, cannot be found before the third Gym. There is no leeway on this at all. That rule has been the same for a long time. I have researched old Monotype threads and this has always been the case. Although, back in the day, there have been threads that absolutely banned hacking completely, so be glad that I let you guys hack when necessary.

      I saw your updates. Don't worry. I'm doing this on a weekly update system. So in a couple of days I'll go through all the recent posts and update the list. That way I don't have to update the thread every couple of hours... XD

      I'm instituting a minimum of 2 Pokemon. Primarily because using a single Pokemon kind of defeats the purpose of doing a monotype, especially if that Pokemon has 2 types. The whole point of this challenge is to beat the game using a team who shares a common trait. If you only use one Pokemon, then there is no trait to share.

      What is the rule on a dupe clause? I don't think I saw one in the rules.

      While using dupes is certainly not encouraged, I'm not gonna force anyone to use only one of a particular Pokemon. But it would be a little obnoxious to complete a Monotype using 6 Gyarados. Also, if someone did do that, I would only count it as one Monotype. Stacking types voids the whole point of the challenge.

      Was just thinking would it be acceptable to do a Green Mono colour for Fire Red and Using Venasaur and 2 Victreebells so it would count for Mono-type aswell, I know I keep trying to do this Multi challenge thing I just feel it makes it a little harder

        -- Update 2 --


        Only two gyms this time, but this was a HUGE update to play. Between getting lost in Dark Cave and the Game Corner, this took a good length. Koga was just unbelievably stupid, he seriously could have beaten me with that Weezing, but instead he used Selfdestruct! Unbelievable. And with how Critical Hits worked the first generation, now that Gambit has Slash, every attack from him is a Critical Hit, it’s a little insane.

              I lost all my data on my acekard2i sorting it out. (I accidentally deleted everything ).
              I'll restart Platinum on my retail copy, so I won't accidentally delete it again.

              I know it's been a long time, but I'm back and I'll have an update sometime tomorrow.

                Hey guys, I am back with another (short) update.

                Really all I did was traverse Route 5 and train on Route 11, though I am still training as I speak. Route 5 was a pain in the butt, stupid statuses. Route 11 is kind of the same, with poison, sleep, and paralysis, with a dash of confusion. Not much has changed though, and I am taking turns with a friend of mine who agreed to help me. We're having fun on New Years' Eve. It's about 11:10 now. For my team, there were no new Pokemon and levels and moves are about the same as last time. That's all for now, but to be honest, I am getting pretty tired. Bye!

                P.S. Happy New Year!

                  Ok I was just wondering if the limit was going to be two or three.

                    Just wanted to note y'all that I have decided instead of crystal I will be playing SoulSilver. This is due to the the fact that if I am playing crystal it will be on an emulator, which means I cannot trade onix to become a steelix.

                    The games I am playing will be

                    Blue,SS,E,Pt,Black

                    Black 2/8

                      That kinda made me laugh, how much controversy was caused over me wanting to do an ice type platinum XD

                      I haven't played 4th gen very much at all since it bored me, so I figured a challenge would make it more fun. Thanks for the info about the eevee by the way, I don't mind having to use it, or back tracking.

                      Just a general question though, I'd be using my starter until i get eevee, once I get eevee I box my starter forever, correct?

                      That is correct Ellipsai. Unless your starter matches your chosen type, you can only use it until yu obtain the first pokemon of your type. You can use it as an HM slave if you want though.

                          After my last update, I finished grinding my team to level 47 then went on to defeat Cheren to get to the badge checkpoint. I went through Victory Road as quickly as I could, then went ahead and took on the Elite Four. I took on Marshall first and defeated him with a little difficulty, so I moved on to Grimsley who was a little easier to defeat. The next two members were fairly easy to defeat, with Caitlin first then Shauntaul. I moved on to the Champion's room where (gasp!) I found N who summoned his castle to appear. I went through the castle and made it to the final room, where I caught Reshiram with a Quick Ball so I could go ahead and move on. I defeated N fairly easily, but it took a few tries to defeat Ghestis because of his annoying Hydreigon. I watched the credits roll, and now I'm going to train some more and hunt down some TM's before I take on the Elite 4 for the final time in this entire challenge. My current team:

                          Serperior / Lv51 / Leaf Blade, Strength, Aerial Ace, Giga Drain
                          Leavanny / Lv52 / X-Scissor, Leaf Blade, Shadow Claw, Poison Jab
                          Whimsicott / Lv51 / Giga Drain, Shadow Ball, Energy Ball, Hurricane
                          Sawsbuck / Lv56 / Jump Kick, Faint Attack, Horn Leech, Megahorn
                          Ferrothorn / Lv52 / Power Whip, Iron Head, Gyro Ball, Bulldoze

                          For the first round through the Elite 4 and endgame, Sawsbuck was the clear MVP due to its versatile move pool that was very effective against a majority of the E4 (and Ghestis' Hydreigon). The LVP was Serperior, because I didn't really even use it :/
