    Just to check, because I can get Kakuna, Beedrill and Pikachu before the first gym I won't be able to use my starter for that gym? I presume it is the case that as soon as I can get a Pokemon of my colour I must stop using my starter?
    Yes as soon as you can get a pokemon of the colour chosen you box the starter.

    Update to my team guys! I've decided that instead of using Bellossom, I will be using Sceptile. It just makes more sense to me, like durr, thats the starter pokemon. Anyways, here it is.

    Journal Entry #1

    Chose treecko as my starter, named it Speedy.
    Defeated Rival, Speedy grew to Lv. 6
    Grinded in wild grass on the way to Oldale town, Speedy grew to Level 7.
    All in all, between the tutorials and wild pokemon Speedy reached level 10.
    Made my way to Petalburg City after battling trainers on Route 103.
    Did all that crap with your Dad and catching wally a pokemon, Ill spare you the details.
    On route 104, caught a wurmple! Thought I was going to need to wait until Petalburg Woods, but I guess not. Nicknamed it Sulfuerox
    Grinded with Sulfuerox and got it to Level 7. It evolved into Cascoon. YAY!
    Grinded a bit more, Cascoon evolved into Dustox, Level 10!

    It begins!

    Log
    > Started with an unwanted Squirtle. Quickly progressed up to Viridian forest and caught a Weedle (nickname Hanzo). Deposited Squirtle to the eternal prison of the PC.
    > Quickly evolved Weedle to the desired Beedrill, grinded for a while in preparation for the dreaded Pewter City gym.
    > Challenged Brock with Hanzo at level 16. Managed to win first time by maxing defense with harden whilst facing Geodude, healing, then whittling down Geodude and then Onix by poisoning them and then whittling them down with Fury Attack (with boosted crit chance from Focus Energy). Claimed the Boulderbadge!
    > After multiple trips back to the Pokemon center, made it through Mt Moon and arrived at Cerulean City
    > Caught a Sandshrew on route 4. Nicknamed Bolin.

    The Manly Misadventure: Part 0.5
    __________

    • The E4 were a breeze! The only Pokemon that fainted was Mack the Porygon, a.k.a the weakest link on my team
    • Champion Red was a little harder. But with the help of some Hyper Potions, he was easy too. To be honest I am disappoint. Well, Kanto will be harder I suppose.
    • Nooope...
    • I arrive in Kanto, and every trainer is easy as heck to beat! Even the gyms are too.
    • Cruised through Kanto, getting me my badges. My Pokemon are so overleveled. I certainly hope the final Champion is harder than all these gym leaders.
    • After beating Brock, went to Mount Moon to catch a Clefairy! Before that, found Rival Omar and battled her again. Easy of course. Nicknamed the Clefairy Nice.
    • Spent the next two hours training Nice up to the level of the others. Also used Moon Stone to evolve him to Clefable.
    • Decided to box Mack. Honestly that Porygon has become useless compared to the rest of my team.
    • Presently have 15 badges. My very last one is within reach, if I could just find Gary mothereffin' Oak.

    Er, not sure what you are doing here, but "Cream" isn't a Pokedex color. Typhlosion is Yellow, and Pidgeot is Brown. You need to follow the rules. Check the OP for the color list.
    So it has to be a Pokedex color... Bleh. Whatever i'll start over with another. Thanks for the heads-up :)

    Update #1: Yellow - White 2
    Wow, I really have to get used to using a full team again, or at least I'm working towards having a full team. I'm so used to doing solo runs all the time. I like the variety this challenge (and others) give. The only downside is I get annoyed really fast if I can't OHKO a Pokémon :) I always plan my teams out for these kind of challenges and I begin my playthrough with some expectations (or none) for Pokémon I've never used before (or rarely used). So far I'm quite disappointed with Elekid and I hope it gets better when it evolves, but Sewaddle makes up for it big time. I don't really like the way Leavanny looks, but if it keeps this upward trend Sewaddle's got going, then it's sure to get used in future teams.

    The Manly Misadventure: Final (0.6)
    __________

    • So after an hour of stupidly looking around for Gary, realized it's just Giovanni and he was in the gym the whole time. Dammit
    • Finally a gym leader who was actually tough. All his Pokemon were up to par with the levels of mine, so beating him was tougher than most.
    • With Giovanni down, went back to Prof. Oak and gained access to Cerulean Cave. This time I actually did my research; I should find the final trainer Leaf at the end.
    • Tried to fight Leaf. Failed miserably. Remembered the final trainer has Pokemon in the Level 80s and went to do training
    • There was no way I had enough patience to get my Pokemon up to par with hers. They were in their 50s-60s and it would take ages.
    • In the end, trained only my most useful team members to 60s - early 70s
    • Felt like completing my team to get 6 Pokemon, but couldn't find any other useful pink Pokemon around. In the end, just withdrew Mack from the PC because wynaut
    • Vs. Trainer Leaf. The only team members actually useful in this fight were Kirby, Double L (the biggest help of all), and Nice. Honorable mention to Marley, who took out Lapras. Mack was utterly useless, and The Wiggs took a crit to the face and ended up dying right off the bat.
    • Beat her by the skin of my teeth. Creditrollpls!
    • Mono-Color Challenge
    • And... well, yeah, that's it. CHALLENGE FINISHED!

    Right, that is one of the only exceptions to the minimum rule. You can count it as a Solo Challenge too! :)
