            no i'm not dead i just have started college and as such didnt have a lot of time to play emerald
            Spoiler:

            Picked starter treecko so rival would take torchic cuz badass
            Caught Wurmple
            Evolved into silcoon
            caught cascoon in Petalburg Woods
            Evolved both into beautifly and dustox
            Got to Rustboro
            did some serious grinding and caught nincada
            more grinding and Gym

            VS Roxanne
            well a rock gym leader in a bug mono was always going to be tough it was fine in yellow cuz brock didnt have any rock moves but this time i'm not so lucky roxanne has rock tomb and isnt afraid to spam it not to mention despite its 80 acc she still hits it nearly every goddamn time.
            Beautifly VS Geodude, absorb took it to red ninjadodged rock tomb she wasted a potion as i killed it
            Switched in Nincada
            Nincada VS Geodude, hit it with a couple of sand attack then brought in dustox which got some damage off then finished with beautifly
            Nincada VS Nosepass
            oh god i excpected this to be hard and it wouldve been if not for one savior... Sand Attack. nincada threw 6 sand attacks at it then proceeded to harden (he blocked me from escaping) then i slowly chipped away with leech life bringing him to red and making her use her last potion then i ran out of PP and started chipping away with scratch since she downright refused to use rock tomb and still barely hit tackle cuz of sand attack eventually she did kill me though she was in the yellow so i brought in beautifly and it lived an absorb with a tiny smidgeon of health just to say "yeah i'm a bulky mofo so ha ha" thankfully due to the low accuracy it missed rock tomb and a second absorb put the nail in the coffin.

            Team:
            Beautifly LV 14 (didnt nick due to not knowing what wurmple would evo into will name fluttershy V2 at name rater)
            Absorb
            Gust
            Tackle
            Poison Sting

            Common Man (Dustox) LV 12
            Harden
            Confusion

            Sasuke V2 (Nincada) LV 12
            Scratch
            Harden
            Sand Attack
            Leech Life

                Yep, I kinda messed up with Dex number. Ah, my short memory...

                Also, I would like to start a Dragon-type run in Platinum, hoping to finish it this time! :D

                Platinum Ground Monotype, Update #4

                Spoiler:
                -Beat Barry at the Hearthome City gate.
                -Went through Route 209 and battled the trainers there.
                -Arrived in Solaceon Town.
                -Checked out the ruins and got HM05 for Defog.
                -Put Margarita in the Daycare.
                -Went through Routes 210 and 215, battling lots of trainers along the way.
                -Arrived in Veilstone City.
                -Checked out some of Veilstone City, including the Game Corner, Department Store and such.
                -Beat the trainers on Route 214. In doing so, Morton evolved into Gastrodon.
                -Found a Razor Fang, which I used to evolve Jade into Gliscor.
                -Caught a Rhyhorn on Route 214 named Polaris.
                -Caught a Hippopotas in the Ruin Maniac Tunnel named Pygmy.
                -Got TM40 for Aerial Ace on Route 213 and taught it to Jade.
                -Withdrew Margarita from the Daycare and put Pygmy in there to get her some levels.
                -Beat the trainers in the Veilstone Gym.
                -Challenged the Gym Leader, Maylene!

                Veilstone Gym overview:
                Team entering the fight: Jade LV30 / Amulet Coin - Earthquake, Screech, Faint Attack, Aerial Ace
                Uranium LV29 - Tackle, Rock Throw, Rock Tomb, Screech
                Polaris LV29 - Tail Whip, Stomp, Rock Blast, Scary Face
                Forester LV30 - Bite, Curse, Mega Drain, Razor Leaf
                Morton LV30 / Quick Claw - Mud Bomb, Hidden Power Dragon, Body Slam, Water Pulse
                Pygmy LV28 / Exp. Share - Sand Tomb, Bite, Sand-Attack, Yawn

                She starts off with Meditite while I open with Jade. She uses Fake Out, which barely does anything, but I flinch. Me: 86/94 HP. I use Aerial Ace and kill her in one hit. Jade grows to Level 31 after that and learns Night Slash, which I replace with Faint Attack for that extra 10 power (although I do like that getting through evasion noobs, I have Aerial Ace for that).
                Next up is Machoke. I use Aerial Ace and she lives in the orange, predictably, and uses Rock Tomb, which lowers my Speed. Her: 30% or so HP, Me: 79/97 HP and -1 Speed. Despite that, i'm still faster and finish her with Aerial Ace.
                Finally is Lucario. She's faster because of the speed drop and uses Metal Claw, but it doesn't do much at all, and I use Earthquake, which kills her in one hit and ends the battle.
                Yeah, I wasn't expecting this to be hard while I had Gliscor. The only thing that could have kept me from destroying that Lucario was her using Force Palm and paralyzing me. So yeah, pretty easy.

                -Found Lucas outside the Gym, who apparently had his Pokédex stolen by Team Galactic.


                So here's my team:

                  Sorry for not responding in such a long time, but I'm going to drop this challenge, just count by LF playthrough as a solo challenge.

                    Ok I think that I signed up for ghost mono type run through fr - I wasn't on this community for a while because school came in between ..

                    Now I realized that I can only catch ghastly that's ghost type in FR. And ghastly is found pretty late in game. So can I use randomizer in order to randomize ghastly as starter? I tried to do hacking in before - and whenever I tried to hack in a certain pokemon that pokemon remaind to be the only wild pokemon found through the entire game - which was pretty annoying since it was impossible to train in the grass :/

                          Defeated Red. I kinda was low on levels, but I didn't want to grind anymore, so I figured out a strategy with Pinsir. First, i went back to Blackthorn City, took Rock Climb away from his moveset and made him learn Stealth Rock. Then, I took some HM Slave for that friggin' HM, and made it again to Red, now with proper items and two levels up, thanks to some wild ones and a Rare Candy.

                          First off, I've set up 3 X-Def and 3 X-Sp. Def. Pikachu was trying to harm the guy with Thunderbolt and Quick Attack (dunno why wasn't using Volt Tackle), and I was just stalling him, setting some stats up and then healing the next turn. When I got 3 X-Speed, 6 X-Attack, and Stealth Rock set, I was ready to go.

                          Pikachu died in one hit with Earthquake.
                          Charizard died in one hit with X-Scissor (50% health gone thanks to SR).
                          Lapras died in one hit with Superpower.
                          Snorlax died in one hit with Superpower.
                          Blastoise died in three hits, allowing me to set up X-Attack and X-defend twice.
                          Venusaur died in two hits, X-Scissor twice.

                          That allows me to say... Challenge complete! :D

                            I guess I should update, huh? Instead of finishing one of my monotypes, I started an Electric monotype on SS. So far I've defeated everyone up to Morty and carrying 3 of my 4 final party (considering I can't get any other electric types until Pikachu in Viridian Forest, meh). Went looking all over the place for a Thunder Stone but no luck. Really hoping to not have to wait until postgame to get Eevee to evolve.

                              Update #2 for Platinum Ground Mono

                              Progressed onto Hearthome City, did a super contest and wandered around aimlessly not knowing I had to beat Fantina to progress and found myself utterly confused since she's the 5th gym leader. Finally figured it out. Struggled with her for a couple tries but finally beat her. Chomper evolved into Gabite. Moved forward to Veilstone City and defeated Maylene rather easily.

                              Also, unrelated to Platinum. I'm switching my Gen 5 game from White to White 2 due to more ground types being available.

                                Hey, you can get a Thunderstone by the Pokèathlon shop, only on Thursdays, for 2500 points.

                                I've started the Dragon-type Challenge, but for now I'm just hacking some dragons in Route 202. Currently having Horsea, Bagon and Dratini.

                                  Nope. That's post-game only. The Thunderstone prize in Bug Catching Contest is also post-game only. The only way I can get it is if the Lass calls me with an item.

                                        Platinum Ground Monotype, Update #5

                                        Spoiler:
                                        -Helped Lucas get his Pokédex back from Team Galactic.
                                        -Got HM02 for Fly.
                                        -Went through Valor Lakefront and Route 213, battling the trainers there and in the restaurant. In doing so, Forester evolved into Torterra.
                                        -Arrived in Pastoria City.
                                        -Used a Heart Scale to reteach Thunder Fang to Jade.
                                        -Caught a Quagsire on Route 212 named Flipside.
                                        -Beat all the trainers on Route 212.
                                        -Checked out the Pokémon Mansion.

                                        -Beat the Gym trainers.
                                        -Challenged the Gym Leader, CRASHER Wake!

                                        Pastoria Gym overview:
                                        Team entering the fight: Flipside LV34 / Zoom Lens - Mud Shot, Slam, Mud Bomb, Yawn
                                        Jade LV34 / Amulet Coin - Swords Dance, Earthquake, Thunder Fang, Aerial Ace
                                        Forester LV34 / Quick Claw - Bite, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf, Earthquake
                                        Magnum LV34 - Rock Blast, Stomp, Tail Whip, Scary Face
                                        Morton LV33 - Body Slam, Mud Bomb, Hidden Power, Water Pulse
                                        Pygmy LV34 / Exp. Share - Sand-Attack, Crunch, Yawn, Sand Tomb
                                        He starts off with Gyarados while I open with Flipside, and he gets off the Intimidate. He uses Bite, which gets a critical hit AND I flinch, that's just great. Me: 68/114 HP. Then he uses Waterfall, but thanks to Water Absorb that ends up a total fail, and allows me to use Yawn. Me: 96/114 HP. Since he knows I have Water Absorb, he's probably not gonna use a Water-type attack again, so I switch in Jade, as he uses Twister for pathetic damage before he falls asleep. Him: Full health and asleep, Me: 95/105 HP. Since he's asleep, I decide to go for Swords Dance, just to be on the safe side as he snoozes. Me: 95/105 HP and +2 Attack. I then kill him in one hit with Thunder Fang.
                                        Next up is his ace, Floatzel. He goes for Ice Fang, which doesn't kill me, but I flinch. Me: 19/105 HP. Then he kills me with Aqua Jet. Not cool, bro! I send in Flipside again, and he uses Brine, but Water Absorb restores me to full health, and I use Yawn. He then uses Crunch…and gets a critical hit before I hit with Mud Shot, then he falls asleep. Him: 77% or so HP and -1 Speed, Me: 49/114 HP. As he snoozes, I go for Mud Bomb, which hits and gets the accuracy drop, but the Sitrus Berry knocks him up. Him: 72% or so HP, -1 Speed and -1 Accuracy. He snoozes more and I go for another Mud Shot. Him: 44% or so HP, -2 Speed and -1 Accuracy. Now for the issue: I don't want him to wake up and use Ice Fang on Forester. So I get extra ambitious here and switch in Magnum as death fodder, but he continues to snooze. He snoozes some more, and I use Scary Face to lower his Speed. Him: 44% or so HP, -4 Speed and -1 Accuracy. He wakes up and uses Aqua Jet, but somehow I live with 1 HP, and use Rock Blast, which only hits twice and barely does anything. Him: 18% or so HP, -4 Speed and -1 Accuracy. He uses his Hyper Potion, and I miss with Rock Blast, then he kills me with Aqua Jet. I bring in Flipside again, and he uses Ice Fang, while I manage to use Yawn again. Me: 23/114 HP. I actually go first next turn and hit with Mud Shot before he finishes me with another Crunch, then he falls asleep. Him: 72% or so HP, -5 Speed, -1 Accuracy and asleep. I bring in Forester and use Razor Leaf, which hits and finishes him off. Forester grows to Level 35 after that.
                                        Finally is his Quagsire, who dies in one hit to Razor Leaf, ending the battle. Pygmy grows to Level 35 after that.
                                        To say the least, that was very interesting. Although I probably could have made this much easier if Floatzel hadn't flinched Jade with Ice Fang, it wouldn't have been as fun if I had just swept him with one Pokémon. I mean, I already did that with Maylene, so I though it was time to let my new recruit in to take care of things.

                                        -Found Barry, who told us about a Galactic Grunt with a bomb!


                                        Here's my team:
                                        Spoiler:
                                        Torterra (M) "Forester", Level 35
                                        Nature: Brave
                                        Moves: Bite, Earthquake, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf

                                        Gastrodon (M) "Morton", Level 33
                                        Nature: Quirky
                                        Ability: Storm Drain
                                        Moves: Body Slam, Hidden Power Dragon, Mud Bomb, Water Pulse

                                        Gliscor (F) "Jade", Level 34
                                        Nature: Careful
                                        Ability: Sand Veil
                                        Moves: Aerial Ace, Earthquake, Night Slash, Swords Dance

                                        Rhyhorn (F) "Magnum", Level 34
                                        Nature: Gentle
                                        Ability: Rock Head
                                        Moves: Rock Blast, Scary Face, Stomp, Tail Whip

                                        Hippopotas (F) "Pygmy", Level 35
                                        Nature: Naive
                                        Moves: Crunch, Sand-Attack, Sand Tomb, Yawn
                                        I kept her involved because I wanted her to learn Earthquake at Level 37, because she needs that as soon as possible. Crunch is not cutting it.

                                        Quagsire (F) "Flipside", Level 35
                                        Nature: Hardy
                                        Ability: Water Absorb
                                        Moves: Mud Bomb, Mud Shot, Slam, Yawn

                                        Not gonna bother with storage right now, I completely forgot to do this update since i've already beaten Byron at the time of this and I have to do that.
