Second update for le monowater challenge.

- After grinding Penance and Parivir to LVL 30-somethings, Penance evolved into Golduck.

- Beat Elesa with relative ease, thanks to my new Golduck.

- Went back to Lostlorn Forest to find a Panpour. After about half an hour of searching, I was lucky enough to find one in rustling grass. Nickname: Aiai (lolobscurevideogamereference)

- Went back and beat Charles the Heartbreaker, and crossed the bridge, catching myself a Ducklett while I was there. Nickname: Vonne.

- I found that using Aiai was difficult because there was no water stone to evolve it with, and as a result he began to slow me down significantly.

- So I did what any rational Pokemon trainer would do: put him in the PC for the time being.

- After quite a lot of grinding to get Vonne up to speed with the rest of the team, she evolved into Swanna.

- Easily beat clay thanks to the type advantage.

- Parivir evolved - NOT! I decided he's going to stay a Dewott throughout the whole game. Mainly because I much prefer Dewott over Samurott, and also because I want to add some more challenge to the game.

- Made my way to the next city: Mistralton. After grinding the team to Level 40-somethings, went and beat Skyla with relative ease.

- Flew back to Aspertia City and surfed on Route 19 to get that coveted Water Stone.

- Evolved Aiai into Simipour and put him back on the team.

- After quite a bit of grinding to get Aiai up to speed with the team, flew over to Lentimas Town, and made my way to Undella from there.

- At Undella, caught meself a Staryu and a Frillish! Nicknames: Shuriken and Jello, respectively.

- Got set to grinding with the two. I'm currently training the entire team to reach Level 50-somethings before continuing, starting with Jello.

- Jello evolves into Jellicent. Still need to get around to training Shuriken.

Current Team:


Name: Parivir
Gender: Male
Level: 45



Name: Penance
Gender: Male
Level: 47



Name: Vonne
Gender: Female
Level: 44



Name: Aiai
Gender: Male
Level: 45



Name: Jello
Gender: Male
Level: 46



Name: Shuriken

    Today I finished my Emerald bug run.

    Final Team:

    Spoiler:

    Megahorn
    Reversal
    Brick Break

    Protect
    Metal Claw
    Rock Tomb
    Earthquake

    Shedinja-Shedinja: lvl 46 (Again, where's the name rater in this game?)

    Fury Swipes
    Confuse Ray
    Shadow Ball
    Fury Cutter

    Beautifly-Bella: lvl 54

    Morning Sun
    Giga Drain
    Gust
    Stun Spore


    Run Through of Battles:

    Spoiler:
    Sydney:

    Spoiler:
    Lenny Megahorns Mightyena, OHKO. Switch to lvl 18 Dustox to get rid of Mightyena's Intimidate. Dustox faints, switch in Lenny. Lenny OHKO's everything with Megahorn.


    Pheobe:

    Spoiler:
    Helga sets up two Swords Dances while silly Dusclops keeps using Protect. Aerial Ace OHKO's everything.


    Glacia:

    Spoiler:
    Lenny's Brick Break OHKO's everything.


    Drake:

    Spoiler:
    Ew. This one was pretty hard. Lenny uses Megahorn almost OHKOing Shelgon. Shelgon uses Double Edge. Drake uses Full Restore, Brick Break twice, Shelgon faints. Altaria is almost OHKOed by Ivan's Rock Tomb, Altaria uses Dragon Breath. Drake uses Full Restore, Rock Tomb twice, Altaria faints. Lenny Megahorns Flygon, Flygon uses Dragon Breath finishing off Lenny. Switch to Dustox, use Max Revive, Dustox faints, switch into Lenny, Megahorn again Flygon faints. Switch to Bella, Stun Spore Kingdra, Giga Drain twice while fainting to two Surfs. Switch in Lenny, Megahorn, Kingdra faints. Switch in Ivan, two Rock Tombs KO Salamence, Salamence uses Dragon Breath doing decent damage.


    Wallace:

    Spoiler:
    Lenny's Megahorn leaves Wailord with a sliver of health, making Water Spout do almost nothing. Wallace uses Full Restore, Brick Break then Megahorn KO Wailord. Ivan's Earthquake almost KO's Tentacruel. Tentacruel misses Toxic. Wallace uses Full Restore. Two Earthquakes later Tentacruel faints. Lenny Megahorn crits Milotic, KOing it. Bella Giga Drains Whiscash, doing about half damage, Whiscash uses Amnesia. Next Giga Drain gets it into the red while Bella takes about half damage from Surf. One more Giga Drain finishes it. Lenny's Megahorn OHKO's Ludicolo. Now only Gyarados is left, at first I was worried about this thing because even though people rage about Gyarados' typing, Flying resists Fighting and Bug, my two strongest STABs, but then I realized that he didn't have anything to hit Shedinja so Confuse Rays and Shadow Balls KOed Gyarados.


    Two down, three to go. Hmmm, I really don't know which one to do next

            Is it okay if I switch my Sinnoh game to Platinum? It seems to run better than Diamond on the emulator I'm using.

            Anyway this post is gonna be a short update on my Fire Red bug run. I'm at Fuchsia city in a position to challenge Koga.

            Team:

            Spoiler:
            Higgins-Parasect lvl 37

            Slash
            Spore
            Bullet Seed
            Leech Life

            Vivian-Beedrill lvl 40

            Agility
            Twineedle
            Brick Break
            Pursuit

            Carol-Butterfree lvl 43

            Sleep Powder
            Psybeam
            Gust
            Stun Spore

            Lauren-Venomoth lvl 32

            PoisonPowder
            Leech Life
            Stun Spore
            Gust

            Suzanne-Scyther lvl 23

            Aerial Ace
            Pursuit
            False Swipe
            Agility

            Oddish (CUT and FLASH slave)


            I wasn't planning on using Venomoth but I found it in the Safari Zone while looking for a Scyther at lvl 32 so I thought I might as well. I need to get to grinding Suzanne and Lauren, I don't think I'll ever try to evolve Suzanne into a Scizor, but I want to use a Scizor in Platinum.

            Two games down, three more to go! The only challenge was Wallace's stupid Gyarados but I managed to overcome them all. The Victory Road was so easy too. I wish each game's was that easy! There was no clear MVP either because they were all awesome. If I had to pick I guess it would be Atlas the Heracross! They were all Level 61/62 by the way.

            On to HG now!

                      Twitch the Yanma - Lv. 30 - Air Cutter | Silver Wind | Uproar | Double Team
                      Stonewall the Pineco - Lv. 28 - Bug Bite | Rock Tomb | Dig | Headbutt
                      Khan the Venonat - Lv. 30 - Psybeam | Poison Powder | Stun Spore | Supersonic
                      Frederick the Parasect - Lv. 28 - Seed Bomb | Leech Life | Slash | Spore

                      Just beat Morty! Also got Pokerus surprisingly so their stats are jumping like crazy. Now I begin my least favorite part of any Pokemon game ever u_u Cianwood/Olivine/Mahogany. Didn't want to use the same Pokemon twice in different games but decided to give Parasect another chance where it actually has STAB it can use. They're doing good though so far.

                          so I wrote a huge update for the Sapphire leg of my Water Monotype run, since I just beat the Elite Four. Unfortunately, I then decided to delete it because I'm apparently an idiot when I'm half awake, and I don't feel like writing out the whole thing again. Basically, I've beaten the game, but it was a super close call, as I didn't spend enough time grinding near the end, so I survived with Swampert with barely any health left. Anyway, I'm now onto the Platinum leg of my run, so hopefully I don't totally screw up the update for that one.

                          Also, I'm putting my bug run on hold for now, since it turned out to be a whole lot less fun than I thought it would be, considering I've never used Bug types before

                            I decided to start Sapphire along with this run. And sorry if this is a noob question but can I trade version exclusives in?
                            Pokemon Heartgold Mono-Water update #4 & 5
                            After I beat Whitney I watered the "tree" and got across to Ecruteak City and got the HM for Surf and taught it to every one of my pokemon. After that I went to the Union cave only to realize that I couldn't surf yet. Then I backtracked to Ecruteak, and went to the Brass tower and I beat my rival by getting Very lucky with Julie Quagsire the quick claw made her strike first and freeze Meganium with Ice Beam , and then I beat Morty and he was pretty easy even with a Slowking which had the disadvantage.
                            So then I got the ability to surf in the overworld, and caught my last two members. I caught Nessie the Lapras on Friday in the Union cave, and then I caught Polibo the Poliwhirl which I evolved immediately into Politoed. After that I went to Olivine city and did all of that secret potion lighthouse Ampharos stuff and fought Chuck who was prettyhard with his Focus punch which almost OHKO everything with Hypnosis too. eventually I beat it by spamming body slam on Polibo (Politoed vs Poliwrath! Awesome!)
                            And then I set up a Rain to power up water attacks and One shotted Primeape with surf.

                              After just starting a dragon ultimate, I realized that only Dratini - Dragonite are Dragons in Gen 1, so I'm going to do a single Dragon type! Haha it's going to be for Emerald.

                                    Question: So I found a Shiny Pidgey today in the wild right next to new bark town right when I started a new game, it's level 3. So I'f down the line I wanted to do a Flying monotype challenge would I be able to trade that pidgey in and use it? I know there is a no trading rule but i'm not sure if it still stands for this situation because it would literally not make the game easier at all because pidgey is the first pokemon you can run into and thats even where I caught it at level 3 no egg moves or EV's at all so it's just a cosmetic change.

                                    Also for version exclusive trade-ins is there a specific time we are supposed to do them? for example mantyke is a gold exclusive at what point would I be able to trade in a low level one?

                                      Alright, so a couple days ago, I decided that for my next challenge I'll do Kanto in my Bug UMC. I'm going with Pokémon Blue this time for the nostalgia, and because it's been a very long time since I've played through the old games. Here goes.

                                      Type: Bug
                                      Game: Blue
                                      Badges: 4

                                      Started with Charmander for no real reason whatsoever. Quickly picked up a Weedle and a Caterpie in Viridian Forest and grinded until Butterfree learned Confusion, and then Brock turned out to be a complete pushover. Going through Mt. Moon, we caught our third team member, Paras! Parasect later proved incredibly useful against Misty. Stun Spore, then spam Scratch for Staryu, Leech Life for Starmie. Lt. Surge, as I recall, was more or less a complete sweep, too. At least after teaching Parasect Dig. Erika was a joke, too.

                                      Anyway, I just thwarted Team Rocket's plans at Silph Co., and I'm planning to take on Sabrina now, before I'm off to Fuschia City, where I'm hoping to catch a Pinsir!

                                      Here's my team so far:

                                      Spoiler:

                                      DOOD I DID IT. I FINALLY DID IT. I BEAT RED.

                                      Okay, here was the problem. 4 of Red's team were really strong against my entire team (I no haz Steelix, shush). I had to figure out some way to get past Venusaur, Blastoise, Lapras, and Snorlax. Venusaur and Lapras alone could sweep my team. So it was train, train, train... /sigh.

                                      Had to use Sandstorm to get rid of the 100% Blizzard. Had to use Explosion, TWICE, to kill Venusaur and Lapras. Had to use Blastoise to Amnesia Quagsire to infinity and beyond. Despite being level 78, Charizard STILL outsped Mamoswine. Won with just a Marowak in the red. Uuuuugh that was hard.

                                      Completion time: 38:20

                                      Final team:

                                        ??? I never knew there was an experience boost for trade ins.
