Hi there, I'm SteC and this is:

Gc9Ok3Y.png

The Basics
In the interim of my incomplete attempt on Emerald, this is my second go on the Solo Challenge with my good pal Aron. The same rules apply with the previous run; defeat all species of Pokémon in the region excluding those that appear outside of Kanto. In other words, Pidgey is essential to battle and win against, but Hoothoot... not so much. If the regional Pokédex was too easy (and not at all time-consuming) then the secondary challenge is to clear all existing Pokémon in the national dex up to Gen 3.

This time, the rules have been retuned to fit around the scope from my previous experience, mainly the following:

  • catching and breeding another Aron for party use is fine, only if the hatched Aron can evolve and the original starter remains unevolved. Victories with Lairon/Aggron do not count
  • completing the Pokémon League and beating the last legendary is the minimum requirement. Ideally the regional Pokédex must be beaten before the next region can be explored
  • try to keep the 'caught Pokédex' count as small as possible until the Elite Four/Champion are beaten and post-game modes unlock
  • other party Pokémon may be raised for the sake of competing in Double Battles, but not essential
  • 'Eras' now ecompass each Generation a pool of games appear in while 'Parts' are reserved for each version. Don't think too hard about this - I wanted to change them into 'episodes' but I already made the title graphic, so there!

Path to Domination
The regions I intend to play in order.

Hoenn --> Kanto --> Sinnoh --> Johto --> Unova --> Kalos --> Alola --> Galar --> Paldea

The Rules
Detailed explanation of my playthrough in the spoiler box.

Notes
Just as before, a vanilla run with the starter hack available to me and nothing else. My Google spreadsheet is now updated to cover Fire Red and Leaf Green as well as the index covering dex #1 to the end of time. I only hope that I don't get stuck in the post-game shenigans for too long like before *cough*BattleFrontier*cough*, which significantly killed the momentum of wrapping up Hoenn. The thing is, I actually have some familiarity with the Kanto remakes long ago, stopping short on Fucshia City when my neighbour and I lost interest around 2005, and I cannot blame my PS2 for that. If I time this well, this could be done by the end of the winter holidays, so wherever you will be going on Thanksgiving and the new year, please stop by for a few minutes if you can. :>



First part of FireRed is... heading down your town!

The VS Seeker. Just wait 'til the postame. From where I left off, I was about to miss the fabulous party on the S.S. Anne and had a boatload of trainers and a HM for my trouble. Pshh. Wasn't my ticket, anyway.

I didn't go far this time. Or did I...?

Lavender Town, where people talk about the ghosts all day long. Too bad the day/night element wasn't put into use back then, because that would be a pretty rad twilight visual. Who's in the mood for spooking the living daylights out of my boi?

That's... interesting, I guess.

Following Snorlax's (temporary) downfall, we returned to Celadon City to find out how useless these tasty drinks were later on amid much goofing around as follows:

We get it! TEA is amazing.

Mr. Superiority Complex was here in the flash. No, I can't. It's all too much. I need a lie down.

Chapter 7 - Rocky's Wild Ride Detour

Yes, you read the Batman recap. Preperations were made for this chapter, or at least everything that I already knew. Except for one that you're about to find out below.

Before we continue, happy holidays and thanks for taking the time to visit the travel journals during the busy period. Unlike last year's visit to the UK, I have little in the way of plans from Japan and I am able to keep this going at your leisure.

Blaine was the next Gym Leader to face. Now allow me to suspend my disbelief for one minute; if the front door was locked, then why didn't the coach carry a spare? Then I wouldn't have found out that Mewtwo existed and broke free from the Mansion.

A pleasant Happy New Year to everybody in the PC, and thanks for sticking around! It was time to check out my hard earned gym badges and pass through the Victory Road to teach some so-called Cool Trainer posers a lesson. You know I never liked them, right?

Chapter 9 - Math Ocean

No recap for once. It's all VROOM VROOM VROOM to the Sevii Islands. Think of the Orange Islands meets Donald Duck in Mathmagic Land, but without the education and Disney's greed.

Celio on ONE. His choice wording told me this was going to be one bumpy ride. We needed gemstones to initiate the Hoenn trading mechanic, something which is not required for in the solo run!!

The Sevii Islands saga should conclude in this chapter with one very obvious exception at the end. Arriving at SIX - count 'em - SIX Island was the Flanders to our Homer, the Dinkleberg to our Turner, it's...

This is the concluding chapter of the Fire Red Solo run with Aron. We're going to forget about... that place for now and venture to the southern area in Island SEVEN for any remaining Pokémon. First, there are two menus to choose from, including a lengthy summary of my accomplishment.
