    Ultimate Purple Monocolor Challenge HeartGold Update #3

    Badges: 7

    -So I had a change of heart, and switched out Walnut for Bruce the Koffing which I caught at the Burned Tower
    -Around the same time Cooper the Shellder hatched out of the egg
    -Went and dealt with the Red Gyarados so I could take the Red Scale back so I could have Exp Share
    -Went to Olivine and Wedge easily handled Chuck with little issue
    -Spent about an hour and a half doing Voltorb Flip so I could get the TMs for Thunderbolt and Substitute (honestly that's the fastest I've gotten to 12,000 coins, so at least I'm lucky somewhere in this run)
    -Taugh Bruce Thunderbolt and also Fire Blast
    -Due to changing Pokemon and having to level one all the way from Level 1, I actually ended up having to do a bit of grinding outside of the Safari Zone
    -Whilst grinding, Dmitri evolved into Espeon at Lv. 25, and my mom finally bought me a Moon Stone so I could evolve Robert into a Nidoking. Made hime a SubPuncher.
    -When everyone was about Lv. 30, I could finally move on
    -Jasmine wasn't that bad of a fight, iirc it was a team effort
    -Pryce also wasn't terrible, Thunderbolt ftw :)

    Brown on Black 2, here we go!

    ♦ Started up the game and picked Snivy. Got the PokéDex, battled my rival, all of that good beginning stuff.
    ♦ Caught a Patrat, who was a temporary member of my team until I reached the Virbank Complex, where I caught Tupelo the Growlithe.
    ♦ After training him up a bit, I battled Roxie and won quite easily.
    ♦ Went to the Pokéstar Studios and later beat up Team Plasma. It was then time to sail to Castelia City.
    ♦ Went into the sewers, which apparently was Plasma's new hiding spot. After that, I went to the gym and battled the trainers. I tried fighting Burgh, but despite having a type advantage, I couldn't beat him.
    ♦ Decided to train up in the Castelia Park, and caught a Lopunny out of the shaking grass to help me.
    ♦ With Lopunny on my side, I managed to pull off a victory.
    ♦ Went up to Route 4 and battled Colress, and he cleared the path for me. Also caught a Mandibuzz that I named Kaya.
    ♦ Trained Kaya and Tupelo up in and around the desert, and then continued to Nimbasa City.
    ♦ Took on Elesa and won without much effort, Tupelo was good here. I was surprised that Kaya was actually the one who won it for me.
    ♦ Trekked west to Driftveil City, and went even further to catch a Deerling. Named him Cherry, which is like the most unfitting name for a Deerling ever, but anyways...
    ♦ Since Cherry didn't have any Grass-moves yet, I had to use Tupelo and Kaya for Clay. Tupelo's intimidate really came in handy.
    ♦ Just participated in the PWT, and wrecked Plasma on their ship. Saved in Driftveil.

    I'm gonna sign up for my next challenge right now, since I've been playing that and this at the same time. I get bored of Unova easily. I'm gonna do Blue on Blue, SoulSilver, Emerald, Platinum and Black.

    Update on Ultimate Monocolor Challenge (Green).

    Final Update (#2) on White 2.
    • Went to the Strange House and got the Lunar Wing, then headed through Reversal Mountain to Undella Town.
    • Defeated Hugh without much trouble, then went directly to Lacunosa Town, where I defeated Zinzolin alongside Hugh.
    • Moved on to Opelucid City and Route 9, where I went shopping for vitamins and stuff.
    • Did a little EV training, then took on the Opelucid Gym. Drake was easy after Majesty set up Coil + Leech Seed on Druddigon.
    • Went and caught Zelle the Virizion since I now had 7 badges, then beat all the trainers I skipped earlier.
    • Watched Team Plasma freeze Opelucid City, then defeated Zinzolin easily with Zelle.
    • Made my way to Humilau City, where I defeated Marlon without much difficult thanks to my Grass-types.
    • Went to Route 22 and got the Colress Machine, then headed through Seaside Cave to Team Plasma's ship.
    • Pieced together the code with clues from various members of Team Plasma, then defeated Zinzolin again with Hugh's help.
    • The ship flew off, and I followed it to the Giant Chasm after depositing my Surf slave.
    • Got on the ship for the final time, and after solving the puzzle, was able to defeat Zinzolin and Colress without much trouble.
    • Followed Ghetsis into the recesses of the Giant Chasm, where I defeated White Kyurem, then took him on.
    • Amazingly, Dryad was able to solo him with Swords Dance + her array of super effective moves.
    • Went to Victory Road, where I caught my final team member, Iron Giant the Golurk.
    • Fed it some vitamins, and EV trained my team, then made my way through Victory Road without Dryad as I needed a Surf slave :(.
    • Defeated Hugh at the end, and we were through to the Pokemon League.
    • After finalizing movesets and EVs, I got everyone to L62, and then the Elite Four was finally up.
    • Took on Marshall first, who was handled by Limey, Iron Giant, and Dryad.
    • Next was Grimsley, who was defeated by a combination of Compactor, Dryad, Majesty, and Iron Giant.
    • Caitlin was taken out by Iron Giant, Dryad, and Majesty.
    • Shauntal took a couple tries, but was eventually defeated by just Limey and Compactor.
    • Finally the Champion, Iris, was up. Here's a video and play-by-play of the battle:

    Finally, Brown is done.

    ♦ Continued from the PWT to Mistralton City through Chargestone Cave. Picked up my final team member before though, since Cheren had given me Surf. It was a Buizel that I named Ramin.
    ♦ Climbed the Celestial Tower and took on the gym. Skyla wasn't difficult, Tupelo and Kaya brought her down.
    ♦ Got a ride to Lentimas Town, went through a mountain with Bianca, and ended up in Undella Town.
    ♦ Battled my rival and continued to Opelucid City.
    ♦ Ramin had Ice Fang, so he did all the work in the gym, and destroyed it quite easily.
    ♦ Plasma interfered in everyone's business, so I took them down and went to Humilau City, since they fled there. I also took down the gym while I was there. Piece of cake with Cherry. Sounds delicious
    ♦ Defeated Ghetsis in the Giant Chasm, and was finally able to go to the Pokémon League through Victory Road.
    ♦ Shauntal and Caitlin got swept by Kaya.
    ♦ Grimsley and Marshal required a team effort to take down.
    ♦ Iris wasn't difficult at all. Her Lapras did cause some trouble, but nothing major.

    I already have both Kanto and Hoenn done for my Blue challenge, but I'll go in chronological order for the updates, so this will be Kanto.

    ♦ Picked Squirtle as my starter, named it Bioche. It was my only partner for way too long, until I got Surf in Fuchsia City. That was when I went south of Pallet Town and caught a Tangela that I named Tumen.
    ♦ I had skipped some stuff since Bioche was overleveled anyway, so Tumen took care of that and grew a couple of levels.
    ♦ Went to the Silph Co. and immediately went to pick up Lapras. Named it Navua.
    ♦ Exited and trained Navua up a bit, and then I started ransacking the building again.
    ♦ Fought Giovanni at the top, and then moved on to Cinnabar Island. Blaine was easy thanks to Bioche.
    ♦ With 7 badges in my possession, I went to the Seafoam Islands and caught Articuno. Named it Thyamis.
    ♦ The eighth gym was also easy, all of my Pokémon had supereffective hits on Giovanni's team.
    ♦ Battled my rival on my way to Victory Road, pulled off a victory, continued through the entire cave and ended up at the Indigo Plateau.
    ♦ All of the Elite Four members were taken down without much effort.
    ♦ The Champion was not difficult either. Video of the fight:

    Final Update (#1) on LeafGreen.

    • Moved on through Mt. Moon and caught Spike the Sandshrew on Route 4, then beat Misty with Spark.
    • Did Nugget Road and saved Bill, then went down to Vermilion City.

    • Bought a Thunderstone for Spark, and he evolved into Raichu!
    • Scaled the Pokemon Tower and saved Mr. Fuji to get the Poké Flute.

    • Got a ride to the Sevii Islands from Bill, and I caught Spirit the Ponyta on Kindle Road.
    • Found Lostelle and delivered the Meteorite, and we went back to Cinnabar Island.
    • Went around defeating trainers I had skipped in my rush to Cinnabar, and Spirit evolved into Rapidash!

    • Went back to the Sevii Islands and made my way up to Mt. Ember, where I caught Pheonix the Moltres.

    • Lorelei was soloed by Spark's Thunderbolt, with 2 Mega Kicks for Jynx.
    • Bruno was double teamed by Spike and Sleeper.
    • Agatha was pretty much soloed by Sleeper's Calm Mind + Psychic.

    Update for SoulSilver!

    ♦ Picked Totodile as my starter, named him Dinder.
    ♦ Went up to Mr. Pokémon's house and got a call from Prof. Elm, so I rushed back to his lab to see what was going on.
    ♦ Cleared up everything there, and then continued my adventure.
    ♦ Just under Violet City, I caught a Hoppip that I named Radika.
    ♦ Trained both of my members up in the Sprout Tower, and then took on the gym. Falkner went down easily thanks to PoisonPowder.
    ♦ Trekked to Union Cave, went through it and both Radika and Dinder evolved!
    ♦ Reached Azalea Town, and helped Kurt fight Team Rocket in the Slowpoke Well.
    ♦ Challenged the gym, Scyther was powerful but eventually fell to Dinder. The rest was a piece of cake.
    ♦ On my way to Ilex Forest, I battled my rival and won. Chased around some Farfetch'd in the forest and got Cut as my reward.
    ♦ Taught Headbutt to Radika, and went back to Azalea to catch a Heracross in the Headbutt trees there. Caught one and named her Tekeze.
    ♦ Trained her up on my way to Goldenrod City, and above it as well. While doing so, I encountered a Nidoran♀ whom I caught and named Gelevara.
    ♦ Since Gelevara had Double Kick, she was useful in the gym. She also evolved in there!
    ♦ With Double Kick on Gelevara and Brick Break on Tekeze, this was the easiest fight against Whitney I've ever had.
    ♦ Moved on to Ecruteak City, went to the Burnt Tower and defeated my rival as well as encounter Suicune.
    ♦ Morty and his gym trainers were really easy as well, I had Bite on Dinder and Gelevara, and I had recently taught Shadow Claw to Tekeze.
    ♦ In Olivine City, I climbed the Lighthouse and was told to go to Cianwood City to get medicine for Jasmine's sick Ampharos.
    ♦ Picked up the Good Rod in some house and backtracked to New Bark Town. Fished up a Chinchou that I named Alazani.
    ♦ Taught her Surf, and decided to train everyone up to Lv 30 before continuing any further. This means that Dinder, Radika and Alazani all evolved!
    ♦ Surfed to Cianwood City and battled Chuck. Tekeze's Aerial Ace worked wonders here.
    ♦ Got the medicine, surfed back to Olivine, gave Jasmine the medicine and then crushed her in the gym.
    ♦ Went left of Ecruteak to Mahogany Town, and helped Lance out in the Rocket Hideout.
    ♦ Took on the gym, which was beaten by Dinder, Tekeze and Alazani.
    ♦ Right after I left the gym, Elm called and asked me to investigate the Radio Tower in Goldenrod.
    ♦ Flew there and found out that Rocket was at it again, so I smacked grunts left and right until every last one was done for.
    ♦ This granted me access to Blackthorn City, so I went there and beat Clair in the gym with Dinder's Ice Fang and Radika's status moves.
    ♦ Clair refused to give me the badge, so I had to go to the Dragon's Den and prove myself worthy of it.
    ♦ Took the test and passed, and Clair gave me the TM for Dragon Pulse. When I left, both Prof. Elm and mom called. Mom was more important in this case, since she had bought a Moon Stone for me. Picked it up and evolved Gelevara with it!
    ♦ Elm wanted me to go and see the Kimono Girls, so I went to the Dance Theater in Ecruteak and defeated them one by one. They then wanted me to come to the Whirl Islands, so that's what I did.
    ♦ Summoned Lugia from the depths, and KO'd it.
    ♦ Cleared out the final stretch left of New Bark before the Pokémon League. Also battled my rival in Victory Road.
    ♦ Did some moveset finalizing, and then took on the Pokémon League!
    ♦ Will wasn't hard, but required the whole team's help.
    ♦ Koga was a bit tricky with his Double Teaming and poisoning, but he was eventually taken down. Managed to get a pretty sweet 1 HP ending with Gelevara.
    ♦ Bruno was really easy, despite his Pokémon landing some hard hits.
    ♦ Karen was surprisingly easy as well, although she did try to outsmart me by switching out.
    ♦ Lance was up next, and he did put up a fight. In the end I was the winner, thanks to my team.

    Update on Ultimate Monocolor Challenge (Yellow).

    Update #1 on HeartGold.

    Name: Sunny
    Rival: Silver
    Starter: Cyndaquil

    • Started with Vulcan the Cyndaquil, then did the Mystery Egg quest.
    • After getting Pokeballs, I caught Drillbit the Dunsparce in Dark Cave after an hour of searching.
    • Drillbit took care of Sprout Tower, then Vulcan defeated Falkner.
    • On the way to Union Cave, Vulcan evolved into Quilava!
    • Caught Spike the Sandshrew in Union Cave, and went through to Azalea Town.
    • Followed Kurt into the Slowpoke Well and defeated Proton and Team Rocket.
    • Took on the gym and defeated Bugsy with Spike's Rock Tomb.
    • Went through Ilex Forest, teaching everone Headbutt along the way.
    • Got to Goldenrod City, then used Headbut on Route 34 until I found a good tree, and out came Palmer the Exeggcute!
    • Played a lot of Voltorb Flip (DeSmuMe savestates are really useful here) and got around 40000 coins.
    • Bought 2 Thunderbolt TMs, a Flamethrower TM for Vulcan, and a Swords Dance TM, as well as all the held items.
    • Beat all the trainers around the city that I could find, then challenged Whitney.
    • Drillbit was able to para-flinch his way to victory with Glare and Headbutt.
    • Rushed up to Ecruteak City, got Dana's phone number, then went straight back to Goldenrod to get Shock the Eevee from Bill.
    • After a ton of calls from Ethan (so annoying) I finally got one from Dana and got a Thunderstone.
    • Used it on Shock, and he evolved into Jolteon! Then I taught him Thunderbolt.
    • Went back to Ecruteak, training up Shock on the way, then went into the Burned Tower.
    • Defeated Silver and released the legendary beasts, then took on the gym.
    • Shock was really good with Thunderbolt here, and he ended up soloing Morty easily thanks to Flash making Gengar miss everything.
    • Made my way to Olivine City, and Spike evolved into Sandslash!
    • Surfed on Sentret to Cianwood City, and defeated Eusine on the north side.
    • Challenged the gym, and Drillbit was able to solo Chuck with some more para-flinching and avoiding Focus Punch.
    • Healed Amphy in Glitter Lighthouse, then crushed Jasmine with Vulcan's Flamethrower.
    • Did some Surf exploring of Union Cave to raise my team a little more, then headed to Mahogany Town.
    • Went to Lake of Rage and killed the Red Gyarados, then infiltrated the Rocket Hideout with Lance.
    • Eventually defeated Petrel and Ariana to clear out Team Rocket.
    • Took on the gym, and Pryce required a team effort to defeat.
    • Got the call from Elm about the Radio Tower, and now that I had 7 badges, it was time to go Raikou hunting.
    • First I went to Dark Cave to catch a Wobbuffet to trap it, then was able to catch Raikou with a Fast Ball after only a few encounters!
    • Saved the game in the Radio Tower after getting to the second floor.

    Update #2 on HeartGold.


    • Defeated Petrel in the Director's office, then went to the Basement Warehouse, defeated Silver, and got the Card Key.
    • Defeated Proton, Ariana, and Archer in short order to eradicate Team Rocket from the Pokémon world.
    • Went through the Ice Path to Blackthorn City, and while training on Route 45, Vulcan evolved into Typhlosion!
    • Took on the gym and defeated Clair without too much trouble, then took the quiz in the Dragon's Den to get the badge.
    • Got the Master Ball from Elm, then went to Ecruteak City to defeat the Kimono Girls, who were tough as always.
    • Climbed the Bell Tower and Master Balled Ho-oh, then visited the secret room in the Ruins of Alph.
    • Surfed from New Bark Town through the Tohjo Falls, then made my way to Victory Road.
    • Picked up the Earthquake TM for Spike, then defeated Silver at the end, and we arrived at Indigo Plateau.

    • Took on the Elite Four.
    • Will was soloed by Joteon's Charge Beam and Shadow Ball combo.

    • Bruno was defeated mostly by Spike, who used Swords Dance + Earthquake.

    ♦ My first order of business in Kanto was to get a Lucky Egg. It took a while, despite having a Butterfree with Compoundeyes.
    ♦ When I snatched one, I began my journey in Kanto.
    ♦ After clearing all the gyms, Prof. Oak called and granted me access to Mt. Silver.
    ♦ Before going there, I trained my team up to Lv. 65 with the help of the Lucky Egg and gym leader rematches.
    ♦ Took a photo on my way there, and then got Snorlax to Rock Climb all the way up to Red.
    ♦ Red was fairly difficult, luckily I had stocked up on potions and revives, which saved me from losing.

    Like I said, I already have Hoenn completed, but I don't really remember anything of it so it'll most likely be a pretty bad update...

    Like I said, I don't really remember anything of the Blue run on Emerald, but here goes:

    ♦ Picked Mudkip as my starter and named him Pamisos. Caught Cesano the Taillow shortly after.
    ♦ After beating Roxanne, I caught a Whismur that I named Gauja.
    ♦ Gauja wasn't used that much in the beginning, due to Brawly and Wattson. After having evolved, it became quite useful though.
    ♦ Most of Hoenn was taken down by this trio, my next team member wasn't until Mt. Pyre. It was a Chimecho that I named Nemunas.
    ♦ Nemunas was helpful against Tate & Liza, since it resists Psychic-moves. They still managed to put up a fight, but Pamisos could deal out some pretty hard damage with Surf and Ice Beam.
    ♦ After beating them, I went down in the depths and caught a Clamperl that I named Aragvi.
    ♦ Using an evo editor, Aragvi evolved into Huntail!
    ♦ I took care of the rest of Hoenn and then challenged the Pokémon League. I remember using some healing items here and there, so it was probably a bit difficult.

    I'm going to try this out.

    Username: PekoponTAS
    Colour: Yellow
    Challenge: Ultimate
    Games: FiredRed, Gold, Sapphire, Pearl, White 2


    I've already started my challenge on FireRed.

    Edit: Update on my quest.
    Chapter 1: The Bee's knees!

    1) Picked Squirtle as my starter so the rival (Ronald) would have Bulbasaur.
    2) Caught a male Weedle with a Careful Nature, and named it "Bumble Jab".
    3) While training Bumble Jab in Viridian Forest, I captured a lv 5 male Pikachu, and named it "Basil" (Great Mouse Detective reference)
    4) Had Basil help out Bumble Jab in his training until it evolved into Kakuna and learned Harden
    5) Dropped Basil from my party, and went off to Viridian Forest with just Bumble Jab.
    6) Very slowly fought the trainers in Viridian Forest with Bumble Jab until he evolved into Beedrill and learned Fury Attack.
    7) Lost against the first trainer in Brock's gym due to Poison Sting not poisoning Sandshrew fast enough. Sandshrew landed a bunch of Sand Attacks that ended poor Bumble Jab.
    8) Re-fought that kid and won.
    9) Took on Brock with only a level 12 Beedrill and won first try. If you're curious of the strategy, I will tell you how I beat him in the spoiler tag below.
    Spoiler:


    10) Very slowly crawled my way through Mt. Moon, collecting items and leveling up along the way
    11) Left Mt. Moon at level 20, having just learned Twinneedle
    12) After having fought the Cerulean Gym trainers and using the rare candies I had collected, I took on Misty with my Level 23 Bumble Jab, and easily won by spamming twinneedle.
    Spoiler:


    Edit: Update #2!
    Chapter 2: Kitty's Quest

    • Beat up Ronald with Bumble Jab, fought my way across Nugget Bridge, and rescued Bill.
    • Beat up Team Rocket and obtained the Dig TM.
    • Traversed across the underground passage and caught my second party member which is a Modest natured Meowth named "Greedy Cat".
    • Taught Greedy Cat Water Pulse and Dig right away, and began the long, agonizing quest to get him to evolve before I fought Surge.
    • Boarded the S.S Anne and spent a really long time fighting annoying trainers with frustrating moves like Supersonic, Smokescreen, Roar, and Thunder Wave.
    • Obtained the Brick Break TM and immediately used it on Bumble Jab. Now Bumble Jab is starting to become a powerful ally!
    • Beat up Ronald yet again, (who actually got invited to the party, that jerkface) got the Cut HM, and had Bumble Jab drill holes in the bottom of the boat so all those annoying trainers died horribly by the time the ship got out to sea. Good thing I'm not playing Yellow, or Officer Jenny would have seen me do that. >__>
    • Went to Diglett Tunnel to attempt to level grind Greedy Cat, and instantly got killed by a Magnitude 10. Hang in there kitty. : (
    • Went out of my way to get the Aerial Ace TM, and taught it to Bumble Jab. Now I never have to use Fury Attack ever again!
    • After much time and frustration, Greedy Cat finally evolves into Persian!
    • I catch a Spearow to trade for a Farfetch'd, which will be my Cut/Fly slave.
    • Surge gets pulverized by Greedy Cat with a combination of Dig and Faint Attack. It was one sided from the start. It was a cat vs mice and a bouncy ball.
    • Taught Greedy Cat Shock Wave


    Edit: Update #3
    Chapter 3: The Road to Electabuzz



    • Went through Rock Tunnel without flash like a boss. Dodged trainers in there since I hate Rock Tunnel and wanted to get through it quickly
    • Bumble Jab destroyed everything in Erika's Gym
    • Spent all my money AND grinded the slots for a Shadow Ball TM to use on Greedy Cat.
    • Took the Silph Scope back from Giovanni and put a stop to his plan to start a shady medium business. (seriously, what the heck did Giovanni need the Silph Scope for?)
    • Greedy Cat beat up all of Ronald's Pokemon except Ivysaur, which Bumble Jab killed in one hit.
    • Greedy Cat beat up a bunch of dead creatures by hurling a bouncy ball at them.
    • Beat up Team Rocket, (again) rescued Mr. Fuji, and obtained the Pokeflute.
    • Caught the Snorlax blocking the path to Cycling Road to use as a Surf/Strength slave. Named him "Bearlax"
    • Had Greedy Cat beat up all of the trainer goons in Fushia gym.
    • Got my butt royally kicked twice by Koga. Had to go level up some more.
    • After fighting trainers and feeding rare candies, I fought Koga again, and still just BARELY won.
    • Got Surf and the Gold Teeth at the Safari Zone
    • Taught surf to Snorlax, and arrived at the Power Plant.
    • At long last! A Wild Electabuzz appeared! It knocked out Greedy Cat, and was just about to knock out Bumble Jab when I luckily managed to catch it! Level 35, Quiet nature, named it "Buzzkill"
    • Immediately taught it Psychic.

    And now you're caught up to where I left off!
