Beating the E4 is a requirement of unlocking the National Pokedex, so there is no legitimate way to unlock it within the parameters of the challenge.

In fact, having the National Pokedex before challenging the E4 the first time really screws up your game. Cuz Lorelei will have left for the Sevii Islands, meaning you can't challenge the E4 until the post game Sevii Islands are completed, which can't be done until you beat the E4. It's a catch 22. So don't bother trying to hack the national Pokedex.

Any suggestions for a good type to mono on Black 2 (as in good team choices early in the game)?
Steel is pretty nice. you can catch a Riolu really early. I'm really enjoying my run of W2 with steel types. You can also catch a Metang later in the game at Giant Chasm, something you really can't get in any other game for a monotype!

    Going on with Normal monotype...

    Defeated trainers before Mt Moon. Nina the Pidgey evolved into a Pidgeotto. Passed through Mt Moon and encountered Team Rocket for the first (A HA HA) time. Fangs the Rattata evolved into a Raticate and Hyper Fang'd all the Hikers to death. I was determined to camp there until I had found a Clefairy, but all I got was Paras, so I finally got sick of it and decided to proceed. (I did catch two Paras...es for HM slavery and Tinymushrooms.)

    Cerulean. Defeated snobby gym underling who says "what? YOU? I'm more than good enough for YOU!" Then I decided she was right in that I wasn't ready for Misty, so I grinded my Spearow until it was a Fearow and knew Pursuit. I had a complicated plan involving the fact that Starmie is part Psychic and Pursuit is Dark type, but I never got to use it because Fangs just Hyper Fanged everybody like a boss. Cascade Badge is mine. Then, defeated Gary, got gold in Nugget Bridge, turned down opportunity to join Team Rocket, defeated trainers to Bill's house and refused to help him. Bill soft talked me into it. You should try refusing to help him as a girl sometime, it's funny. ("Please, beautiful?") Got SS Anne Ticket.

    Current team:

    Spoiler:
    Fangs (female Raticate lv 24)

    Scary Face
    Tail Whip
    Quick Attack
    Hyper Fang

    Nina (female Pidgeotto lv 24)

    Tackle
    Sand Attack
    Gust
    Quick Attack

    Beaky (male Fearow lv 22)

    Peck
    Pursuit
    Leer
    Fury Attack


    Badges so far:

    Boulder Badge

      Moving on from Goldenrod, the levels I gained on the way resulted in Skiploom evolving into a beautiful Jumpluff. I easily kicked Morty's ass, thanks to Togetic and Extrasensory. Gengar took some time, though. I then moved on to Olivine, where I grinded Yanma up to lv. 27 in the Lighthouse, because he had no special moves. I then fished for an HM slave, caught a lv. 20 Magikarp, spent a Rare Candy on it, and taught my Gyarados-slave three HM moves. I then made my way to Cianwood, where I caught a glimpse of Suicune and battled the guy who's chasing after it. I then proceeded to kick Chuck's ass. Only trouble was his Poliwrath, who managed to take down both my Crobat and my Togetic. I then sent out Jumpluff, fairly certain that the battle was won - and that was the battle where I truly discovered the beauty of Jumpluff's annoying nature. Substitute, Leech Seed and Sleep Powder, it felt like I could do nothing wrong! And Chuck just watched his Poliwrath fade away, desperately wasting all his Hyper Potions.

      My team so far:

      Spoiler:

      Gyarados, lv. 25
      Male // Adamant // Intimidate
      - Headbutt
      - Dragon Rage
      - Bite
      - Tackle

      Jumpluff, lv. 28
      Male // Jolly // Leaf Guard
      - Leech Seed
      - Substitute
      - Sleep Powder
      - Headbutt

      Crobat, lv. 27
      Female // Jolly // Inner Focus
      - U-Turn
      - Wing Attack
      - Roost
      - Bite

      Togetic, lv. 27
      Male // Bashful // Serene Grace
      - Extrasensory
      - Fire Blast
      - Sweet Kiss
      - Shadow Ball

      Noctowl, lv. 27
      Female // Calm // Keen Eye
      - Uproar
      - Peck
      - Confusion
      - Hypnosis

      Yanma, lv. 27
      Male // Modest // Speed Boost
      - Protect
      - Uproar
      - Double Team
      - Supersonic


      On a somewhat related note, I started my Emerald run yesterday, but I only caught a Wingull so far. I'm not sure I'll get back to it before finishing my SoulSilver run, though. I like to do these challenges in the "right" order.

      And now, a haiku.

      Platinum monotype,
      It's fire I have chosen.
      Chimchar shall be picked.

      SR for nature?
      Heck no! Far too tedious.
      Barry in the way.

      All the beginner
      Stuff I have done, much boredom.
      Go away Barry.

      Why no broken bones?
      A stupendous miracle
      Slow down Barry.

      Ready for Oreburgh
      Chimp evolved to Monferno
      One-two punch, badge won!

      Eterna forest
      I love Cheryl's free healing.
      Ready for gym battle!

        There is no rule against duplicates, it's just not encouraged where it can be avoided. Obviously in Kanto you're gonna have to have multiples of the same Pokemon in Dragon and Ghost, which is why I signed up for those while I was running the 1000 post event in February.

          Defeated TR member who gives you Dig, but didn't teach it to anyone yet.

          Fangs was complaining that she's doing most of the gym work by herself. On the other hand, Nina and Beaky wouldn't do too well against Lieutenant my-Raichu-toasts-Pidgeottos-for-breakfast Surge. So, on the road to Vermilion, I caught my self a Meowth (male, gentle, nicknamed Nails). Nails is a mixed attacker, so I taught him Water Pulse and Secret Power.

          Received VS Seeker and used trainers near Vermilion to grind Nails to level 22. He gave me several freebies (yay Pickup), most notably TM 10 Hidden Power, which I used on Pidgeotto and turned out to be Hidden Power Grass. I also got a Nugget. Good kitty.

          Went to SS Anne. Rival Rival was there, a dry martini in one hand and some giggling blonde in the other. He was telling her some BS about how he's gonna be the greatest trainer ever. I used him to evolve Nails into a Persian, who then got the ability Limber (prevents paralysis). This is a very nice ability, especially useful for the third gym. I'm beginning to really like this thing, he looks cool, too. Anyway, got Cut and left.

          Taught Cut to one of these Parases from Mt Moon. Nails was somewhat overlevelled, so he basically OHKO'd everything in the gym except Raichu who was 2-HKO'd. After receiving Thunder Badge, we passed through Diglett's Cave, got Flash (barely met the requirements btw) and taught it to Paras. We are now ready for Rock Tunnel!

          Current Team:

          Spoiler:
          Nails (male Persian, lv 30)

          Secret Power

                I just defeated Marlon on my VoltWhite2 flying run. My team is:

                Butterfree level 68
                Staraptor level 65
                Salamence level 66
                Charizard level 65
                Swanna level 65
                Gliscor level 65

                The 7th and 8th gym would have been really really hard if I didn't had Butterfree. Quiver Dance was so useful. So I just soloed the 7th and 8th gym with it. Now only the final part of my journey is left.

                  Passed Rock Tunnel. Nina evolved into a Pidgeot. Defeated rival Rival in Pokemon Tower and listened to him bragging about getting a Cubone. Went to Celadon. Caught a Doduo and boxed Beaky. (The Doduo is female, nicknamed Hydra.) Went to Celadon gym and used the underlings to train my Doduo. Afterwards, Nina started complaining that she should be the one doing the gym work and that someone new comes along and I forget everything we've been through together and that it's not fair and why don't I just box her like I did to Beaky. So we made a compromise: Hydra beat Erica's Victreebel, while Nina beat Tangela and Vileplume. Got Fly and taught it to Nina and Hydra. Used the VS Seeker on some trainers after Lavender to evolve Hydra into a Dodrio.

                  Then I flied back to mt Moon and tried to find a Clefairy again, but had no luck (are they a FR exclusive or something?) so I went to the goddamn Celadon Game Corner and bought one. It's... female. I think I'll submit this for the gender discrimination challenge if I get rid of Nails, since it seems to meet all the requirements otherwise. ANYWAY, named the Clefairy Celia, trained it, got the Tea and the Eevee from Celadon Mansion, went in Saffron to get TM 29 Psychic, and then defeated a suspicious individual in the GC who was standing in front of a poster for some reason. He said something about a secret hideout, so I looked behind the poster and what do you know? ... A switch! ... Yeah, so now we're in the secret hideout. One of them, anyway.

                      Since the first two gens will be Dratini-fest I'm gonna start with B² for some variety.
                      I'll be hacking in Deino / Monozu since you can't get a Dragon type before the 3rd gym.
                      Also, a question, you mentioned the game corner on GSC, but, to get it the person will either be extremely good at the minigame or have massive cash on them. Will you let hack to get the coins, or another pokemon in general? Because it not, the second gen will be a pain to do.

                      Sorry, no hacking is allowed, so you have to buy or play for the coins. It's a gambling system in GSC, so it's less about being good and more about luck. You can play Crystal if you want to hack one in, since there's no Dratini in the Game Corner in that game. Though I would spend the money if it were me. Griffinbane spent hours in SS playing Voltorb flip for TMs and Dratini in her Dragon mono.

                      I probably dropped something like 6-10 hours on flipping Voltorbs for a pair of Dratini and I think 4 TMs. I highly don't recommend it.

                      Going to go ahead and sign up for my next two challenges right now. I'm signing up as singles but I will expand them in to ultimates eventually. I already have played a bit in each game, but I don't have the time to do an update right now.

                        Badges: 8


                        I was going to post a really rough update. (Rough, as in "I now have eight badges and my team is this.") Instead, I'm going to make a huge post, divide it in parts and spoiler them. You don't have to read it.

                        Also, have I mentioned how much I love this challenge?

                        Part 1: Celadon City-Lavender Town

                        Spoiler:
                        I thought Celia (my newly obtained and relatively untrained Clefairy) would be dead weight in TR hideout. I thought that I'd have to train her by the switcheroo method. I was wrong. I had given her Psychic, and the Rockets had a ton of Zubats and Grimers, which she basically soloed. Got Silph Co. and went to Lavender Tower to EV train Celia in special attack against the Ghastlys, er, I mean save Mr Fuji from Team Rocket.

                        The Pokemon Tower had never been so much fun. Ghosts either couldn't touch me or killed themselves with Curse. Rarely, the Al had the intelligence to have them use Confuse Ray, but then I just switched. Meanwhile Celia just wiped everything out with Psychic. I could have stayed forever, but Mr Fuji transported me out of there when I saved him. More to the point, I now have a Snorlax which is... wait for it... MALE. ANOTHER BOY IN THE TEAM, NAILS! Named him Solomon because he looks majestic. (No, it doesn't really make any sense.) Then we went to Cycling Road, where Celia beat up the Bikers.


                        Part 2: Fuschia City

                        Spoiler:
                        The first thing I did was visit the Safari Zone. Thinking "YEAH RIGHT", because I know my luck in the Safari Zone. It usually takes me forever to catch either Tauros or Kangkaskan (never both) and just forget about Chansey, I always leave that for Cerulean Cave.

                        Well, not to beat about the bush... I now have a Chansey and a Tauros. Named them Joey and Mino respectively, and put Mino in the team. Moreover, I now have a surfing Snorlax, which is probably the best thing ever (speaking in terms of coolness, not in terms of recommended battle movesets.) Celia is now a Clefable with Psychic and Safeguard, who defeated Koja all by herself.


                        Part 3: Saffron City

                        Spoiler:
                        Rocket hideout #2. Trained Solomon against the Rockets and then used him to defeat Sabrina. Then taught Celia Calm Mind.


                        Part 4: Cinnabar Island

                        Spoiler:
                        The Cinnabar Mansion has always been one of the most annoying parts of the game for me. I wouldn't mind an interesting side-quest that you have to complete before you can battle the gym leader, like the ones with Burgh and Clay in black and white, but that mansion is just... ugh. Anyway, we go to the godforsaken place to find the accursed key for the confounded gym that should be open in first place, and battle a godforsaken Grimer or Rattata every two steps.

                        Solomon was the main battler in this gym because of Surf, but I also used the birds because they were underlevelled. Nina now knows Return, which typically takes one or two hits to kill most things. D'aw. Anyway, Volcano Badge obtained.

                        Celio was stalking me outside of the gym, and asked me to follow him in One Island, but I told him NO. I told him no mainly out of curiosity, because I'd never done it before and I wanted to see what happens. What happens is that he just waits for you at the Cinnabar Pokemon Center and you can do the side quest whenever you want. So instead, I flied to Viridian City to take on Giovanni. Um. I mean the Unknown gym leader of the Viridian Gym whose identity is a big fat spoiler, like the identity of Luke's father in Star Wars.


                        Part 5: Viridian City (again)

                        Spoiler:
                        I flied to Celadon and spent a ridiculous amount of cash for TM 13 Ice Beam. I then taught it to Clefable, who is now lv 49 and has the highest special attack in the team, and went back to Viridian.

                        The battle with Giovanni went as follows:

                        He sends out Rhyhorn, I send out Tauros with only normal type moves (don't judge. I wanted him to get the experience).
                        Rhyhorn used Earthquake! It... didn't do too much, actually.
                        Mino used Strength! It did absolutely nothing. Alright, alright, that was expected.
                        Hero (that's me, remember?) withrew Mino!
                        Hero sent out Nina (Pidgeot)!
                        Rhyhorn used Take Down!
                        Nina used Hidden Power Grass! (took about half Rhyhorn's health.)
                        Rhyhorn used Take Down! (You have Rock Blast, as I later found out from Bulbapedia! Use it! Give me a challenge!)
                        Nina used Hidden Power Grass!
                        Rhyhorn fainted!
                        Giovanni sent out Nidoqueen!
                        (stupidly attempted HPG there, then switched to...)
                        Hero sent out Fangs (Raticate)!
                        Nidoqueen used Body Slam!
                        Fangs used Dig!
                        Foe Nidoqueen's Poison Point poisoned Fangs! (motherf...)
                        Nidoqueen used Body Slam! (At least she didn't use Double Kick.)
                        Fangs used Dig!
                        (hurt from poison)
                        (Nidoqueen is in the red)
                        Giovanni used Hyper Potion!
                        (motherf...!)
                        At this point I said "screw it" and sent out Snorlax, who Surfed out Nidoqueen, Nidoking and the remaining Rhyhorn.

                        Now gimme TM 26. Earth Badge? What Earth Badge? Oh, yeah, that thing. Yeah, I guess you can give me that as well.

                        Taught Earthquake to Mino. He now no longer has an absolutely horrible moveset.

                        So.. it's a peaceful sunny day in route 22, and there I am, going my merry way, not bothering anyone... when rival Rival appears out of nowhere. He's very surprised that I managed to get all the badges, and he says he'll "whip me" as a warm up to the Pokemon league. (Whipping, smelling... is that kid trying to insert sexual undertones whenever he's saying something dismissive?) His team does not pose a problem except for Blastoise. It's not particularly threatening offensively- it still has Water Gun for some unfathomable reason- but it's very annoying to take down.


                        Part 6: Other stuff

                        Spoiler:
                        Did island side quest.

                        Defeated trainers I had not battled.

                        Went to Power Plant and Seafoam Islands, and killed the respective legendary birds.

                        Went to Celadon City, bought Hyper Beam and taught it to Hydra.

                          Yes,Yes,Yes! I am finally an Ultimate Champion. I just defeated Iris with my team. I had a lot of fun with it. My MVP was Butterfree because of Quiver Dance and LVP was Gliscor mainly because I got it late and I didn't used it at all during the E-4. I might start another one in future. HOF pics:

                            I'm having some troubles with hacking, so I'm gonna change to a Water Monotype.

                              First post updated through post 1423. Kinda disappointing to see two of these on the same page...

                              Dragon monotype - Tadah!!!
                              Finally went back around to the dragons after temporarily putting Voltorb Flip on vacation. Skipping the Flamethrower TM, getting it is just gonna be depressing. While I was grinding away in Victory Road, I encountered a shiny Onix and caught it, whee! Defeated the E4, defeated all the Kanto gym leaders, need to train some more. But first, gonna relax to some retro Goldenrod music.
