So I have decided to replay Crystal yet again. I will be documenting my journey here! As of right now my adventure has only just begun and unfortunately won't have any progress until tonight. I am waiting for dark so I can catch a Poliwag as my first team member. Will update later when that happens!

    "Millionth playthrough", I always think the same thing when I replay a Pokemon game. xD

    It sounds like you might be doing a run without using one of the starters in your main team, instead treating Poliwag as your starter. Is that right? :)

    Good luck on your playthrough. :D

    Yep! I have used the starters so many times that I want to just play without them this time. Poliwag is pretty decent as a water type so not having a starter early shouldn't be too bad.

    Anyways, I made it to Dark Cave and thought it would be fun to use a Dunsparce on my team. If you do not know, this guy has a 1% encounter rate. I searched for nearly 3 hours and had over 300 encounters but I FINALLY found one!

    Update!

    We made it to Violet City after a bit more training and decided to take on Sprout Tower right away. Kyrie couldn't do much as a water type vs the Bellsprout but it became a good training opportunity for Kiwi. After taking down everyone there we were ready for the gym. We went right to it and won with ease. Time to head to Azalea!

    We made it to Azalea and immediately went to save the Slowpoke. It is so scummy the way Team Rocket was treating them :[ After taking out the bad guys we went right to Bugsy's gym and easily defeated everyone. Time to head to Ilex Forest and then Goldenrod!

    Elekid hopefully. I went for Smoochum last time(got it on my first try luckily) but resetting for an Elekid egg could end up being very tedious to the point where I just don't care enough to keep trying. I'd be happy with anything from the odd egg though except Igglybuff since you can literally catch Jigglypuff on the same route. After I add Elekid the last one is going to be Espeon

    Update!

    We made it through Ilex Forest and made our way to the Day Care. The nice old couple inside gave me this little egg and asked me to look after it. Being the kind person that I am, I agreed. After a very long bike ride, out hatched my newest team member: a shiny Cleffa!(I could not give this baby up and reset for an Elekid)

    Update time!

    After hatching Fiona, I did some training in the surrounding routes and areas. My team and I beat the trainers in the underground area, the route north of Goldenrod, the Bug Catching Park, and the area with the daycare. All of this let Fiona quickly catch up to the rest of the gang. We made our way to the gym right after and easily defeated Whitney with Kiwi's powerful Glare + Headbutt combo!

    No update yesterday but I do have one today!

    After defeating Whitney we decided to take an adventure to Ecruteak to face Morty. When we arrived to the town we immediately went to the Pokemon Center and ran into a guy named Bill and he told us about his new invention and about his parent's house in Goldenrod. After visiting him there he gave us an Eevee that he found and we added it to our team! We did some training in the routes around the town and even paid a visit to Olivine to train at the Lighthouse before facing Morty. Kyrie and Fiona even evolved! Needles to say we were more than prepared for Morty and easily defeated him.

    2 updates back to back?!

    I have a rather small update but kinda big? We managed to beat two Gym Leaders, Chuck and Jasmine. We also saved Amphy! Defeating Chuck was a bit tricky with three normal types but we managed to come up with a strategy(Hypnosis OP). Jasmine wasn't too difficult for my team with our good coverage moves. Time to move on!

    Update!

    Quite a lot has happened since my last update. My team and I spent most of our time taking down Team Rocket. They decided to cause a lot of trouble in Mahogany Town as well as Goldenrod. They always seem to be up to no good but once again we put a stop to their plans and hopefully for the last time. We also managed to pay a visit to the Mahogany Town gym. It was a chilly adventure but as usual we came out on top. During all of this chaos Kyrie, Fiona, and Clyde evolved! We are ready for the next step in our adventure!

    I think I am just going to stick with these four, at least until Kanto. The level curve in Crystal is pretty bad and makes it tough for training more than 3 or 4 tbh.

    Small update but we managed to make it to Blackthorn and defeat Clair! She was pretty tough but our teamwork proved to be a bit too much. She did not want to accept defeat though and we were forced to take one final test in the Dragon's Den. We passed with flying colors. It is now time to take on the Pokemon League!

    Finally had a little bit of time to get back at this playthrough yesterday! We did not make much progress since our Kanto journey started, but I do have some news to report.

    We took the SS Aqua to reach Kanto and during that time ended up finding a lost little girl! We truly felt like heroes. After arriving in Vermilion City we immediately checked out the Gym and took on LT Surge. He was actually quite difficult. Kanto leaders appear to be much stronger! After taking him down we decided to explore the surrounding towns and managed to find our way to the Power Plant. Someone had stolen a machine part which left some places without power. Of course we volunteered to help with that and once again saved the day. Oh and we also have a new team member, Janice the Murkrow!

    Update time!

    We've been enjoying exploring Kanto! We spent most of our time since the previous update exploring as much of the region as we could. Kanto is filled with so many places to explore! There are also a lot of friendly people here, including this nice girl who gave us a pass to ride the Magnet Train after helping her get her doll back. We gave the train a test ride and ended back up in Goldenrod. We took some time in Johto and managed to catch Ilex Forest's guardian, Celebi, and added it to our team. We then took a trip back to Kanto and defeated Janine and Brock. 3 Kanto badges down!

    Smallish update! Not a whole lot to report in terms of major happenings within the team but we did manage to defeat a couple of gym leaders! We first took a journey through Diglett cave and found our way to Pewter City and took down Brock. This was a great gym for Lulu to train in. We then headed back to Cerulean and challenged Misty. Lulu once again shined in this gym but it took a team effort since she had a lot of Ice attacks. Shortly after that we headed back to Celadon City and challenged the grass gym and Erika. This one wasn't too difficult either. We now only have 3 badges left to get in Kanto.

    Final Update!

    We went on and finished up the rest of the Kanto Gyms! Blaine and Sabrina weren't too difficult to take down with Poliwrath and Murkrow but Blue was a bit of a challenge. He truly was the first trainer that took a 100% team effort. After knocking him out we went to Mt. Moon and took down Silver one last time. We could have continued on a bit more to face Red but our journey has lasted long enough and it's time to move on. This was an absolute blast of a play through!
