    Cool, a new thread!
    Old one wasn't updating so I thought I'd wait for it before continuing on...

      Another quick update:

      Spoiler:

      -Forced the Bicycle Shop Owner to give me one.
      -Played a few games at Game Corner.
      -Forced by a woman to bring a watering can, a police to carry his message to his friend (corruption?), and a dirty old athlete with an equally dirty old tadpole to play by his own rules.
      -No luck at Pokeathlon.
      -Before being blackmailed by the athlete, cleared Route 35. Magmar made my life hard.
      -Pickup really is convenient.
      -Saved before participating in Bug Catching Contest.
      -I thought bugs have six legs. Why do they have only four?
      -Reset the game many times until, finally, captured a Scyther. How unlucky could I get? Won the Sun Stone and named him Deadpool.
      -Grinded Deadpool and came by the odd tree after kicking the backsides of the bystanders/trainers. Heck, they can do it themselves. Why should it be me?
      -Watered the tree. The tree got angry. I thought plants need water?
      -Oh, it's a rock that mimics trees. Simple. Kill it.
      -Or not. Captured it in a single Pokeball after weakening it with False Swipe. Given Berry Pots as reward by a bystander. Planted Oran Berries. And was still amazed by the usefulness of the move False Swipe. :D
      -Still grinding Deadpool before we raided Ecruteak City.

      Team Baron:

      Spoiler:

      Deadpool/Scyther - Lv 16

        Hey guys, I'm back with another update. Sorry it's taken so long, grinding was ALOT harder than I thought it would be.

        (Final) Update 3!

        OK, I think I posted an update 2.5 before the other thread was locked, but for everyone's sake, I'll start from right after I beat N and Ghetsis.

        So, the first thing I did (obviously) was catch my last two teammates - Poliwrath and Breloom! Went right to Driftveil City to catch a Poliwag on Route 6. Surprisingly, I managed to catch a Poliwhirl! It was female, so I went random and named it Aquamarine. Then, after DAYS of SRing (soft resetting if you didn't know) the game, I got a swarm Shroomish on Route 11. It was also female, and I named it Crys (short for Chrysanthemum, the flower) (I know, I spelled it wrong.), not at all related to my LG Poliwrath, Chris. Sadly, I forgot to get Spore on Crys before she evolved. Tough luck. Anyway, then the grinding process began (my pokes were only around the low to mid- 50s.). From 50 to 60, I fought Audinos purely. From 60 to 70, I used a mixture of the Nimbasa stadium and court, the trainers in the post-game, and the dark grass pokes under Village Bridge. I had to cut Gale's (my Mienshao's) training short at 68 because it was going way too slowly. Anyway, I then went on to face Morimoto, then Cynthia. Here are the play-by-plays.

        Morimoto:

        Spoiler:
        Gale VS Liepard - Fake Out (crit), Hi Jump Kick, Liepard fainted!
        Gohan VS Swoobat - Air Slash, Crunch, Full Restore (Swoobat), Focus Punch (accidental), Focus Punch, Air Slash (crit), Gohan fainted!
        Jinja VS Swoobat - Psychic, Wild Charge, Swoobat fainted!
        Crys VS Simipour - Acrobatics, Seed Bomb (crit), Simipour fainted!
        Aquamarine VS Simisear - Acrobatics, Waterfall, Petaya Berry boost (Simisear), Flamethrower, Waterfall, Simisear fainted!, Aquamarine grew to Lv. 72
        Po VS Zebstrika - Pursuit (crit), Bulldoze (Zebstrika's speed fell), Pursuit (crit), Bulldoze, Zebstrika fainted!, Po grew to Lv. 71
        Jinja VS Simisage - Energy Ball, Jinja fainted!
        Gale VS Simisage - Energy Ball, Gale fainted!
        Crys VS Simisage - Full Restore (Chrys), Energy Ball, Max Revive (Jinja), Acrobatics, Crys fainted!, Effect Spore (poison) (Simisage)
        Jinja VS Simisage - Energy Ball, Flare Blitz, Simisage fainted!

        Next up was Cynthia. Here's her play-by-play.

        XXXXXXXXXXXX!!!
        Sorry, but I don't have enough time to fully end the update. Sorry! Bye.

          Update #8

          Progress:

          Spoiler:
          Defeated Erika with Tentacruel
          Defeated Janine with Quagsire
          Defeated Brock with Lanturn
          Defeated Blaine with Lanturn
          Defeated Blue without too much trouble
          Level grinded at the Elite 4 until I was fed up and took on Mt Silver
          Got to the poke center then flew to back to Celadon to Blackthorn to forget some HMs
          Taught Tentacruel Icy Wind and Ran up to Red...
          The Fight :
          -Pikachu stood hopeless against Quagsire and Red happened to waste his two full restores on him :D
          -Then came Venusaur... PAIN... I sent Tentacruel to set up Rain Dance when he would do Sunny day so it wouldn't spam Solar Beam and so I'd have a free turn to use Icy Wind. I dwindled his HP slowly to 1/3 and he finally got a Crit. wich took Tentacruel out. I sent Feraligatr which used Ice Punch and left it with 1-5 HP. LUCKILY, he used Solarbeam (charge) and thanks to all the Icy Winds, he was slow so I could throw another Ice Punch before it could do anything.
          -Espeon was next. I sent Lanturn to Parafusion it, then I sent Quagsire. After a few Amnesias, I Revived Tentacuel and then took Espeon out with a few Earthquakes.
          -Snorlax was taken care of by some lucky Dynamic punches and "self hurt" on his part.
          -Blastoise was taken out by Tentacruel's Toxic
          -Charizard was taken out by Lanturns Thunderbolts.

            Another update!

            Spoiler:

            -Grinded Deadpool. Drowzee and Stantler gave me much exp.
            -What? A Yanma? Capture it immediately!
            -Captured Yanma and stored it promptly.
            -Went to Ecruteak and promptly went to Route 38.
            -Captured some Magnemite but was still bugged by lack of Metal Coats and the fact that Magnemite in my game appears more rarely than Miltank, despite what Serebii and Bulbapedia says.
            -Aha! Magnet Pull! That will do the trick!
            -Ooooh. Shiny Leaf for my slave Magnemite!
            -Captured 30 Magnemite but only two had Metal Coats. Heh. Just enough for Deadpool and Rocky II, which will later on upgrade to a much harder material than rock.
            -I didn't told you all before but since I was using an emulator, I first thought of using Evolution Editor, which was given to me by jdthebud. But I did also a little searching and found this. Sweet! Sorry jdthebud for not telling you earlier.

            -Anyway, this is programmed to evolve Scyther and Onix when level-uped with equipped Metal Coat. So, long story short, Deadpool and Rocky II evolved!
            -Replaced Magnemite with another Magnemite with stats that are more appealing to me. Sorry Shiny Leaf!
            -Will now grind the soon-to-be Magneto II. Excited about the Parafuse.
            -Also, it is also programmed to evolve Magneton to Magnezone if level-uped with Magnet equipped. Not a bad deal, though Magnet's not like Metal Coat. Hmmm. What should I do?

                    So it took me a couple of days, because I haven't been playing too much, but I've defeated Fantina in Platinum on my Fire UMC.

                    Taking a break and starting a new challenge.

                              Right now, I'm not in the mood to post a more detailed update, so forgive me. My body's aching and I would like a longer rest.

                              Anyway, here's a summary of events:

                              -Met the dejected owner of Safari Zone.
                              -Magneto Jr and Spike evolved at last! So happy! :D
                              -Defeated trying-hard-to-be-cool-guy-who-cannot-even-capture-a-dog.
                              -Defeated Cianwood Gym, mostly using Deadpool's Wing Attack.
                              -Delivered SecretPotion to Amphy. Wonder if it works for my body? :D
                              -Defeated Olivine Gym, this time using Rocky MkII's freshly learned Dig.
                              -Played Baoba's rules.
                              -Taught Strength to Slave I (Croconaw).
                              -Did I broke a rule when I evolved Slave II (Togepi) so that I could have Flash and Fly in my grasp? The Flash was taught after she was hatched.
                              -Anyway, treasure hunting time!

                              Another Update!

                              -After Dark Cave and Mt. Mortar, went to Mahogany Town and Lake of Rage.
                              -Extortionists in the gates, fans run wild, and a red Gyarados? What's happening in the world?
                              -Then came a trying-hard-to-look-like-a-hero with his equally show-off pet. There is definitely wrong in this world.
                              -Went back to Mahogany Town after kicking the trainers' backsides.
                              -News Flash: A man was put to sleep after being deliberately hit by a Dragonite's Hyper Beam.
                              -Seriously? Why can't I hit the trainers and HE can?
                              -Long story short, kicked the Team Rocket's collective asses out of Mahogany Town. What town will they harass next? Not my concern.
                              -Also saw another show-off with red hair whining about being kicked hard by a bleeding-heart.
                              -Grinded because I'm not satisfied with their levels and then razed the Mahogany Gym.
                              -Pawned Pryce with only Spike's SolarBeam (and a Bug Bite on his Piloswine to steal his Berry).
                              -Received a report that apparently, Team Rocket had chosen to target Goldenrod City.

                                Platinum Ground Challenge Update:

                                - Started the game, and naturally picked Turtwig as the starter
                                - Grinded through all of the beginning game-stuff and made my way towards Oreburgh with only Turtwig. Caught a few pokemon along the way, no ground-types though
                                - Beat Roark without any issues; Absorb and Razor Leaf got me through easily.
                                - Turtwig evolved into Grotle!
                                - Machop's Rock Smash got me through to Floaroma Town.
                                - Caught Shellos in the Valley Windworks, proceeded to dispatch of Team Galactic in the area easily.
                                - Went through Eterna Forest with Cheryl, got some much needed exp for Shellos
                                - Reached Eterna City - went and beat Gardenia with Grotle, who now knows Bite
                                - Beat Jupiter and the rest of the Galatics in the city

                                So, yeah, basically, I've got two badges. I'm planning in Gligar/Gliscor, Gible/Gabite/Garchomp, and Rhyhorn/Rhydon/Rhyperior (if I can find a way to trade).

                                Team: Shellos Lv. 24, Grotle Lv. 25

                                    Is it OK if i use an emulator? I have no idea where my old GBA is.

                                      Of course. I've been using nothing but an emulator for my challenges.

                                      Very tiny update.

                                        It's been a while since I've tried a monotype. I think I'd like to take this challenge!

                                        Monotype: Dark
                                        Team: Umbreon, Honchkrow, Houndoom, Tyranitar

                                        Now I just have to get up to te point where I can actually get my first challenge pokemon, Umbreon. That, or try and get Murkrow via Pokewalker.

                                            A question please.

                                            Is manipulation of time not allowed?

                                              You mean "Speed up" button? Changing the day? As far as I know, it is... that wouldn't really be considered cheating since this challenge is not about speed...

                                                I laugh looking at this.

                                                But sometimes I want to come back to it...

                                                  Sapphire Water Mono-Challenge
                                                  Update #1
                                                  Divided into 3 parts (1 for each gym)

                                                  Part #1:

                                                  Spoiler:
                                                  Saved Professor Birch, using Mudkip (This is Water challenge; Mudkip is water type. No reasoning needed.) I named Mudkip Bob because I felt like it.

                                                  Defeated May on Route 103

                                                  Got running shoes

                                                  Defeated trainers on Route 102, healed in Petalburg City, then ran around in the grass until I caught a Lotad (Reason: not weak to grass, and I need another pokemon). I named it Joe because I felt like it.

                                                  Helped Wally catch a Ralts

                                                  Ran around on Route 104 forever looking for Wingull, finally found it and caught it (Reason: Wingulls evolution chain is one of two water pokemon chains in the game that can use Fly (the other evolution chain is in gen 5), and HM slavery is wrong). I named it Ted because I felt like it (see a trend?)

                                                  Defeated Aqua grunt in Petalburg woods

                                                  Battled the trainers on route 104

                                                  Got the TM for Bullet Seed from a girl after leaving Petalburg Forest; used it on Joe

                                                  Arrived in Rustboro City and challenged the gym

                                                  Easily won using only Bob and received my first badge!

                                                  Spoiler:
                                                  Go towards the tunnel after the Aqua Grunt, while something magical happened to Mudkip

                                                  Went into the tunnel and defeated the Team Aqua Grunt. Again.

                                                  Rescued the old man’s Wingull (He’s smart and has awesome water type pokemon, and Team Aqua doesn’t use any water pokemon)

                                                  Went to Mr. Briney’s house and took the boat to Dewford.

                                                  I went to the cave and trained Bob and Ted to 18 and Joe to level 15 to challenge the gym. Joe Evolved!

                                                  Defeated brawly using only Ted
                                                  I got my second badge.

                                                  Spoiler:
                                                  Taught Flash to Joe, forgetting Nature Power

                                                  Went into granite cave to find Steven

                                                  Easily got to him and got his TM, Steel Wing

                                                  Immediately used it on Ted and forgot Growl.

                                                  Took Mr. Briney’s Boat to Slateport

                                                  Battled trainers, had no problems

                                                  Went to the building for CAPT. STERN, and then went the museum

                                                  Defeated both grunts in the top floor room, and the boss threatened me

                                                  Gave the parts to STERN

                                                  Took the boat back to Rustboro, went to Devon and got a EXP. Share

                                                  Took boat to Dewford and got an old rod

                                                  Caught a Magikarp and named it Sam because I felt like it (Yes, I like this reason for naming)

                                                  Gave Sam the EXP share, so that it will evolve into Gyarados

                                                  Trained in Granite cave until Ted was level 20 and Sam was level 10

                                                  In Battle against May, easily won, though Ted took a few hard attacks from grovyle

                                                  Got to Mauville with no problem, went to the pokemon center to heal and saved

                                                  Defeated gym, Wattson only had a chance because of Sonicboom (does 20 damage no matter what)
                                                  Bob was Level 23 and Sam was level 16 after the gym
