    Pokemon Fire Red Monocolor Challenge: Brown - Final Update

    So I suck at this update thing, but I finished my Pokemon Fire Red Monocolor Challenge: Brown.
    I have a few screenshots as proof at least.

    I also used Randomizer to remove Trade Evolution.

    I do have some updates though.

    I've already started on this (in fact way past the starting point) and have just conquered the Pokeball factory. Currently have 6 badges, 5 green pokemon and a HM slave. :) I've also encountered true pokemon logic with Yanmega not being able to fly and Reuniclus not allowed to shoot thunderbolts, yet Golurk can do both. what ;__;

    Pokemon Monocolor Emerald Challenge: Gray - Mini Update

    -While looking for Skarmory, MeatHead (Machop) evolved into a Machoke.
    -Then I finally found a level 16 female Skarmory who I named HenBot which took about an hour.
    -Then I leveled her up to catch up to the rest of the team who were around level 27/28.
    -I went down to Meteor Falls and then did the whole Team Magma plot.
    -I then went to fight Flannery and beat her pretty easily.
    -Whoopi the Mightyena took out Numel with a Bite.
    -Knight the Aron took out the Slugma with a Rock Tomb.
    -MeatHead the Machoke took out the Camerupt with a Low Kick.
    -Whoopi took out Torkoal with 4 Bites.

    These gyms follow each other fairly quick, so the team is not that different. (Aside from a boxed one, two new team members, a few evolutions, etc.)

    Update on Ultimate Purple Monocolor Challenge.

    Final Update (#2) on FireRed.

    • Went to Fuchsia Gym and beat Koga, who was tougher than expected.
    • Infiltrated Sliph Co and beat up all the Rockets, then beat Blue in preparation for Giovanni, who I defeated as well.
    • Surfed to Cinnabar Island and caught Smucky the Grimer in the Mansion, then revived Jet the Aerodactyl at the Lab.
    • Started training them up, and eventually challenged the Saffron Gym. Sabrina was tough but I prevailed in the end.
    • Defeated the rest of the water trainers around Cinnabar Island, then explored the Mansion for the Secret Key.
    • Took on the Cinnabr gym and defeated Blaine easily, mostly with Jet's Rock Slide.
    • Did the Sevii Island sidequest for Bill, and Smucky and Shellack evolved into Muk and Cloyster!
    • Then I used VBALink to trade evolve Shiver into Gengar!
    • Took on the last gym in Viridian City, where Shellack swept away Giovanni easily with Surf\ OHKOs.
    • Defeated Blue on Route 22 with just Shiver, then headed through Victory Road.
    • Arrived at the Pokémon League, then remembered to go do the Power Plant, where I encountered a shiny Pikachu!!!
    • Used Rare Candies to get everyone to L50, then finalized movesets for the Elite Four.
    • First up was Lorelei, who was taken care of by Shiver and Toxy.
    • Bruno wasn't too hard either with Shellack, Rex, and Jet.
    • Agatha was a pain, but I eventually won with a team effort.
    • Lance was another team effort, with Jet winning against Dragonite in the end.
    • Finally Champion Blue was up. Here's a video and play-by-play of the battle.

    Update on Ultimate Purple Monocolor Challenge.

    Update #1 on HeartGold.

    Name: Violet
    Rival: Silver
    Starter: Cyndaquil

    • Picked Cyndaquilas my starter, and after doing the initial quest, caught Vexi the Zubat inside Dark Cave.
    • Got to Violet City and Sprout Tower, where I nabbed Shiver the Gastly.
    • Beat all the Sages, then did a little grinding to get both Vexi and Shiver to L12 before taking on the gym.
    • Falkner actually wasn't too hard thanks to Shiver putting a Curse on both Pidgey and Pidgeotto.
    • Went through Union Cave to Azalea Town, then cleared the Rockets out of Slowpoke Well.
    • Took on the gym, and Bugsy was easy thanks to Shiver's resistance to attacks and Vexi's Wing Attack.
    • Defeated Silver as well, then saved in Azalea Town. Ilex Forest is next!

    Update on Ultimate Purple Monocolor Challenge.

    Update #2 on HeartGold.

    • Got Headbutt in Ilex Forest, then used it on Route 35 to catch a Pineco named Walda.
    • Trained around the city, and eventually took on Whitney, who was a little difficult but I was able to confuse Miltank.
    • A little after that, Vexi finally evolved into Golbat, then 1 level after that, evolved into Crobat!
    • Killed Sudowoodo and got to Ecruteak City, then backtracked to pick up Sphynx the Eevee from Bill in Goldenrod City.
    • Back in Ecruteak, I went Snubbull hunting on Route 38 (1% chance), and while that was happening, Shiver evolved into Haunter!
    • Finally I caught one, but because it had a Modest nature, I bred for a better one at the Daycare, and out popped Flailer the Snubbull!
    • Did some training around Ecruteak City before entering the Burned Tower, where I defeated Silver.
    • Directly after the battle, Sphynx evolved into Espeon!
    • Used Sphynx's Confusion against the gym, and defeated Morty without too much trouble from Gengar.
    • I am now saved in Ecruteak City.

    Update #4: Red - Ruby
    Finished this a little while ago, but never got around to updating, so I'm a little rusty on the details. 3rd gen games are never too difficult, though it is quite a pain if you've still got some training up to do before the Elite Four. My team was balanced enough to get through the League fairly quick, so I'm definitely not done with mono colors.

    Update on Ultimate Purple Monocolor Challenge.

    Update #3 on HeartGold.

    • Went down to Olivine City and grabbed the Good Rod.
    • Used it to go fishing for my next team member, and while I was doing that, Flailer evolved into Granbull!
    • Finally, I fished up and caught Amethyst the Staryu!
    • Taught Ametyst Surf and scaled the Lighthouse as well as explored the rest of Union Cave.
    • Surfed over to Cianwood City and defeated Eusine without much trouble and had the same experience with Chuck.
    • Moved to Mahogany Town, and got a call from the Water Stone guy on the Pokégear, so I evolved Amethyst into Starmie.
    • Went back to Olivine City to heal Amphy, then used Amethyst to beat Jasmine.
    • Made my way to the Lake of Rage and beat Gyarados, then infiltrated the Rocket Hideout with Lance.
    • While I was in there, Walda evolved into Forretress!
    • Defeated Petrel and Ariana easily to clear out the Hideout, then took on the Mahogony Gym.
    • Pryce wasn't too difficult, although he did get a couple critical hit Blizzards on me with Piloswine.
    • The Team Rocket Radio Takeover occurred, so I went to stop them, defeating all the executives and my rival along the way.
    • Went through Ice Path to Blackthorn City, and after beating all the trainers on the Mountain Path, I evolved Shiver into Gengar!
    • Took on the gym, and Clair was tough since I am underleveled now, but I eventually won.
    • Aced the test in the Dragon's Den, then went to Ecruteak City to fight the Kimono Girls, who are proving to be difficult.
    • I am saved in the Ecruteak Dance Theater.

    Update on Ultimate Purple Monocolor Challenge.

    Update #4 on HeartGold.

    • Finally beat the Kimono Girls, then scaled Bell Tower to take down Ho-oh.
    • Made my way through Tohjo Falls to Victory Road, where I beat Silver without much trouble.
    • After getting a couple TMS and editing my team's moves a little, I took on the Elite Four with my underleveled team.
    • Will was easy with Shiver's Shadow Ball.
    • Koga was a little more difficult and needed some teamwork to defeat.
    • Bruno was tougher than I thought, his Machamp (damn No Guard) was a major pain to take down.
    • Karen's Houndoom was very hard as well, as most of my team is weak to Dark, but I was able to squeak by.
    • Finally Lance was left, and he took several tries. I had to rely on some misses to win, but I finally took him down.
    • I am saved at home, Kanto is next.

    Yay, now I can finish this! I actually finished this on the 18th, but couldn't post because I was waiting for a while for someone to bump. Regardless, here.

    Platinum Blue Mono-Color - Update #6, Final Update

    Spoiler:

    The final team:

    Spoiler:

    Final playing time: 29:25 - Had around 23 1/2 hours after Barry. I'd say around four hours went into final training. Then there was some preparing I did, and then the league. Not as long as I thought it would be, but still decently lengthy.

    And that leaves two out of six regions (Kalos and Sinnoh) knocked off for this one! Also, I MIGHT be changing my Hoenn game from Sapphire to Alpha Sapphire, maybe not (i'm two badges into Sapphire but did that over a month ago), but we'll see.
