I have a question. Am I able to trade to evolve my Kadabra, then instantly take it back and have an Alakazam? Or am I forced to continue with the Kadabra?

Oh! Oh! I need a challenge to play a 3rd gen game. This seems interesting! :D

Name: Illusione-Tempus
Game: Sapphire
Pokemon Team:
#1 26+6+96 = #128 aka. Whiscash
#2 26*3 = #78 aka. Electrike (will evolve into Manectric)
#3 6*3^2 = #54 aka. Azurill (will evolve into Azumarill... plus, I have to breed, and I don't like that D: )
#4 Fire. Considering Hoenn only has 5 Fire type families... nah, Ninetales.
#5 Gray. Skarmory. P:
#6 Something from Route 106.

I'll probably have to hack my game to give myself one of them as my starter, considering I can't catch anything before the 1st gym. And knowing my luck the first Pokemon that I'll get in Route 106 will be a Magikarp, so I'll probably not get anyone useful in battle until before the 3rd gym.

Superstrength79 - Birthday Challenge (Updates #1 & #2)

My Pokemon:
Spoiler:


Notes:
1) After going through the game intro and exiting Santalune Forest, I swapped two throw-away Pokemon for eggs that I bred a while back. Used my Froakie to get my Noibat and Lilipup to level 3 each before banking Froakie and training both Pokemon to level 7.

2) Defeated the trainers East of town to get Noibat to level 11 and beat the first gym.

3) Went, as fast as possible, through all of the story until I was at Route 7 with the Pokeflute.

4) First encounter on Route 7 was a Ducklett; which I caught. I wasn't terribly happy at first, but then I realized I need a Water-type (and she's too cute to stay mad at, amirite?), so Natalie was a God send.

5) Ran around in the grass between Route 7 and the second gym until I found a Croagunk. It had Dry Skin (which I was hoping for) and a +Atk nature.

6) Beat the second gym and proceeded North. Went through the Geosenge story and finally left town to the East.

7) Used some Honey until I was able to catch my Nidoran(F). Put her in front of the party for some "old school" switch training (since I'm not using EXP SHARE).

8) Made it through the Reflecting Cave (thank goodness this wasn't a Nuzlocke) and did the Mega Evolution Guru story.

9) Beat the third gym and saved at the Tower of Mastery (I'll keep playing, but that's enough update for one day).

-- Update #2 --

10) Got the Mega Stone/Bracelet and then proceeded to the Skiddo Ranch.

11) Fought all the trainers in Azure Bay and collected the mega stone for Ampharos.

12) Beat the 4th gym (really easy with all of my Flying-type and Poison-type attacks).

13) Saved the Kalos Power Plant. Croagunk is a terrible lead against Dugtrio w/ Arena Trap (just sayin').

14) Went to Lumiose City and went to the 5th gym; Realized I was terribly under-leveled.

15-A) Raised some levels back around the Power Plant, but decided to grind the trainers in the gym instead. Answered incorrectly on purpose to fight more of them. Ended up pulling Charmander out of my box (since I looked up Fire-type Pokemon and saw there weren't that many in the whole Pokemon Universe) and grinded him up a lot of levels in various locations.

15-B) Traded my Noibat between my X & Y cartridges, so I could teach him some special attacks... even that doesn't help my little friend. Game Freak nerfed Noibat's stat pool :(

16) Came back to the gym when Charmeleon was in the low 30s and fought a few more trainers. Had a bad time, so when I got to the gym leader I left to train him to be a Charizard. Came back and smoked the gym leader with Charizard. Was actually taken out by his Heliolisk, but managed to KO it with Drought damage :)

17) Now on Route 14 and have my full team of Birthday Challenge Pokemon.

50px-Plant_Badge.png
50px-Voltage_Badge.png
50px-Fairy_Badge.png


Notes:
1) Breezed through Route 14, Lost Hotel, and Route 16.
2) Evolved Croagunk into Toxicroak while battling the gym trainers. Decided to evolve Nidorina with my Moon Stone before taking on the gym leader, since Nidorina wasn't dishing out any damage (and was barely taking the Fairy-type hits, even though resisted).
3) Sissy took out the gym leader's first Pokemon, then got revenge-killed by her Mr. Mime. Toxicroak revenge killed Mr. Mime with a neutral-effective Sucker Punch. Smaug finished the rest of her Pokemon quite easily (kill them with FIRE!!).
4) Went to the Pokeball Factory to kick out the Team Flare goons.
5) Taught Smaug some better moves at the Move Relearner.
6) Saved on the bridge leading to Frost Cavern.

Noibat continues to be dead-weight (even with Draco Meteor), but at least he is closer to evolving now (he gets to eat all of the Rare Candy that I find).

CHALLENGE COMPLETE!

Superstrength79
- Birthday Challenge (Update #7)

My Pokemon:

Badges (8/8):

50px-Plant_Badge.png
50px-Voltage_Badge.png
50px-Fairy_Badge.png
50px-Psychic_Badge.png
50px-Iceberg_Badge.png


Notes:
1) Things went smoother on my second run. Got a 1-shot on most of the Elite Four Pokemon.
2) Wikstrom - Probopass came me some issues, but I was able to buff on turns I knew it was going to be healed, and managed to work things out. Used Smaug, Chops, and TheGDBatman!
3) Malva - Talonflame was the only real threat; Took it out with Buddy (after a potion war with Malva). Used Natalie, Buddy, and Sissy.
4) Siebold - No real threats at all. Used Smaug to 1-shot everything with Solar Beam except for Gyarados, which I used Buddy for.
5) Drasna - Took out Dragalge with Buddy and Play Rough/Ice Fang follow up. Tried to switch into Buddy (after swapping out into Chops on the free switch), but Druddigon kept using Dragon Tail to knock him back into the ball. Finally gave up when he knocked Buddy back and TheGDBatman! came out. Used Draco Meteor to 1-shot. Natalie destroyed Altaria with a single Ice Beam attack. Used Buddy to Play Rouch/Ice Fang on her Noivern (could have stayed in with Natalie, but was trying to gain some levels on the other Pokemon in preparation for Diantha).
6) Diantha:

Hawlucha - Was able to 1-shot Hawlucha with a Play Rough from Buddy.
Aurorus - Went into Chops and used Swords Dance while she set up a Reflect. Used Brick Break to 1-shot.
Tyrantrum - Switched into TheGDBatman! and took it out with a Draco Meteor.
Goodra - Went into Sissy and took Goodra out with two Poison Jab attacks (with a tick of help from poisoning it on the first attack).
Gourgeist - Went into Natalie and destroyed Gourgeist with a single Air Slash.
Mega Gardevoir - Remembering she has Thunder, I went into Smaug and mega-evolved. Got a flinch with Air Slash (which I was hoping for, so she couldn't Full Restore) and then took out Mega Gardevoir with a follow-up Blast Burn attack!

7) AZ - Beat him easily... not sure why he's even part of challenges for X/Y.

Or maybe not, I don't know. Can't get cover fossil till post game, and none of mine are available before third gym. Do I hack tirtouga and genesect in or what?
