    Sooooooooooo I didn't see this thread on the main Challenge page and I got really scared. I will die before I let this thread die. I'm not doing the challenge as frequently as I used to, and was going to wait until I beat the E4 before I made an update, but desperate times.....

    Ultimate Blue Monocolor Challenge (HeartGold) Update #1

    Badges: 8

    I'm all trained up and sitting at the Elite 4 ready to take it on.

    When I do end up playing this challenge I stream it here.

    Youtube playlist of all Gym battles so far can be found here. (except Claire, I forgot to grab the highlight in time)

    Finally finished this!

    Update on Ultimate Purple Monocolor Challenge.

    Final Update (#5) on HeartGold.

    • I don't really remember much about the Kanto Gym Leaders, but they weren't that hard to beat.
    • I beat the upgraded Elite Four a few times to train my team before rematching Sabrina like 30 times.
    • Used Rare Candies to get everyone to L75, then faced off against Red.
    • Here's the video and play-by=play of the battle, which ended up being somewhat anticlimatic:

    Hey, long time no see! I've missed posting here. I decided to continue my monocolor runs on gen 6, so this will be my first update for Red on Y! Looking at my previous runs here, there are some I'd like to try my hand at again, especially yellow on HGSS, as I couldn't beat Lance the first time around. I might come around to doing that if I get tired of playing Y over and over.

    Also, I'm playing in French in order to improve in that language. Hope it's ok.

    ♦ Started off by picking the female character and naming her Rougela. I then did all that stuff in the beginning, and picked Fennekin as my starter. Named him Flamschazam.
    ♦ I went to Santalune City, where Flamschazam took care of Viola.
    ♦ After a quick stop and picking up Charmander in Lumiose, I continued to Camphrier Town. I caught a Scraggy on the way, named Salapants.
    ♦ Going to the Parfum Palace, I obtained my third member, Vilestria the Oddish.
    ♦ Chased the Furfrou and defeated Snorlax, then went through the Connecting Cave to Ambrette Town.
    ♦ Rode a Rhyhorn to the Glittering Cave, where I beat up some Flare grunts and got the Jaw Fossil, which I later resurrected to a Tyrunt. Named it Dino Might.
    ♦ Continued all the way to Cyllage City, where I took on the gym using Salapants. It was a close call against Grant, but I managed to pull it off.
    ♦ Walked to Geosenge Town and then Shalour City. In Shalour, I did the whole mega evolution tower thing and then battled Korrina. Her Hawlucha was scary with Hone Claws and Flying Press, but it eventually worked out.
    ♦ I dodged most of the trainers on Route 12 in order to reach Coumarine City, where I picked up the Good Rod. I used that to fish up my 5th member, Kaliente the Remoraid.
    ♦ Trained him up and then battled my rival outside the gym. My team has a rather big weakness to Meowstic (since it has Disarming Voice), but we pulled through.
    ♦ Flamschazam had just become a Delphox, so Ramos was quite an easy battle.
    ♦ Went south to the Power Plant, where I beat up Team Flare.
    ♦ Made my way to Lumiose and challenged the gym, mainly using Salapants and Vilestria. Clemont required a team effort, but Salapants evolving just before helped quite a bit.
    ♦ Currently saved in Lumiose.

    Also, is the Exp. Share also banned when training? I've noticed that lag behind quite often since I don't have it on, but it would make grinding a lot easier if it was allowed.

    Currently banned, but make your case via PM as there haven't been very many Gen 6 challengers so far. The monotype challenge did unban it I believe so I might be convinced to do so as well.

    Hey!

    So every time I try to go back to my Blue HeartGold run (usually about once a month or so) I get put off by it. I think it's because I'm not that proud of my team. So I'm restarting my Purple Ultimate! I was on Gen IV but I lost my save from 2 years ago, so I started fresh.

    Ultimate Purple Monocolor Challenge (Platinum)

    Started out with a Turtwig but immediately hacked in a (Diamond-exclusive) Stunky at Lv. 5.

    Roark took forever, but I finally got lucky enough with the evasion hax.



    Team:
    Mono-Color Challenge

    Mirien the Stunky♀, Lv. 14
    Ability: Aftermath
    -Fury Swipes
    -SmokeScreen
    -Poison Gas
    -Screech

    Mono-Color Challenge

    Wedge the Zubat♀, Lv. 10
    Ability: Inner Focus
    -Leech Life
    -Supersonic
    -Return
    -Astonish

    Been playing for a few hours, Brown was probably an easy colour to pick. Team having just beaten Pokemon Tower:

    Kadabra / Fearow / Primeape / Dugtrio / Raticate. Need a water-type however my only option is Staryu and that sucks!!! Suspect I will struggle vs Sabrina and Koga, Growlithe is an option but has a crappy moveset. Thoughts for 6th Pokemon???

    ***UPDATE***
    Owned both Koga and Sabrina, turned over Silph Co. with ease. Toyed with Hitmonchan for a bit but decided not worth the grinding. Just left Cinnabar Mansion, but under-levelled, had to use Horsea as a Surf-slave but now I've acquired Kabuto I'm gonna have to grind for Blaine. (Didn't realise Staryu was LG exclusive).

    Kadabra 40 / Fearow 42 / Primeape 42 / Dugtrio 40 / Raticate 39 / Kabuto 14
