    With the Elite Four and Champion defeated, I was able to take the S.S. Aqua to Vermilion City in Kanto. Once in the new region, I traveled to every city and defeated every trainer I could find, saving all of the gym leaders for later. While doing this I did all of the necessary sidequests, mainly fixing the Power Plant, waking up Snorlax, and getting the Magnet Train Pass. Eventually I had been to every corner of Kanto, so I decided to go ahead and take on all of the gym leaders. In order, I defeated Janine, Lt. Surge, Misty, Brock, Sabrina, Erika, and Blaine. Once I had earned all of those badges, I spoke to Blue on Cinnabar Island, flew to Viridian, and defeated him to earn my final gym badge.

    After defeating Fantina, I flew to Jubilife City and surfed west to Canalave City, where I defeated my rival and the sixth Gym Leader, Byron. Then I dealt with Team Galactic at Lake Valor and Lake Verity. To get to Lake Acuity, I first had to travel to the northern tip of the Sinnoh region, Snowpoint City. After the slow trek through the snow to get there, I immediately went to the gym to defeat Candice, earning my seventh badge. Then it was time to deal with Team Galactic for a final time. I ran in to Jupiter at Lake Acuity, then flew to the Galactic Headquarters in Veilstone City. I worked my way through the headquarters and defeated Cyrus and Saturn to release the mirage Pokemon. Next I flew to Oreburgh City and spelunked through Mt. Coronet to reach Sky Pillar. With the help of my rival I defeated Mars and Jupiter, then took on Cyrus by myself. Finally, I caught Palkia with my Master Ball. Having saved the world, I flew to Pastoria City and traveled east to Sunyshore City, where I retrieved Volkner from the lighthouse in order to take him down and earn my final gym badge of the SInnoh region!

    After defeating Ramos, I went south onto Route 13 and defeated Team Flare in the Kalos Power Plant, restoring power to Lumiose City! With the power back, I was able to revisit Lumiose and take on the gym, where I defeated Clemont and earned my fifth badge. Then I went on to Route 14 where I defeated my rival and visited the spooky house. Once I reached Laverre City I took on Valerie to get my sixth badge. I took on Team Flare once again in the PokeBall Factory, then proceeded east to reach Dendemille Town. After I got there, I backtracked a little to the Lost Hotel, where I caught my final team member, Klefki! After defeating the trainers I skipped on Rotes 15 and 16 and the Lost Hotel, I went to Frost Cavern to deal with Team Flare once again. With Team Flare gone and Mamoswine back on Route 17, I was able to ride it through the thick snow to get to Anistar City, where I defeated my rival and Olympia, earning my seventh badge. As I left the gym, I got a weird message on my Holocaster and flew straight to Lumiose City where I infiltrated Lysandre Labs and witnessed the activation of the ultimate weapon in Geosenge Town. I flew there, defeated Lysandre again, went through a lot of Team Flare Admin battles, caught Xerneas, and defeated Lysandre a final time. With Team Flare dealt with, I flew to Anistar City and traveled southeast to Couriway Town. There I defeated Professor Sycamore before traveling south to Snowbelle City, defeating Shauna, Tierno, and Trevor along the way. Upon arriving to the city, I discovered that the gym leader was away, so I traveled through the Winding Woods to find Wulfric hanging out in the Pokemon Village. I got him to go back to his gym where I defeated him to earn my eighth badge!

    With this update, I have completed my fifth Ultimate Monotype!

    HeartGold
    After defeating Blue, I first traveled to Mt. Silver then spent quite a bit of time training and adjusting movesets. I basically used Steelix as a lead to set up Stealth Rocks and take care of Pikachu, then used Skarmory to set up Spikes. With the entry hazards in play, most of Red's Pokemon were immediately crippled which allowed me to slowly work towards his defeat after the use of many healing items (on both sides of the battle, that is).

    The Monotype Challenge
    Steelix / lv70 / Stone Edge, Earthquake, Ice Fang, Stealth Rock
    The Monotype Challenge
    Scizor / lv70 / Night Slash, Wing Attack, Iron Head, X-Scissor
    The Monotype Challenge
    Magneton / lv70 / Magnet Bomb, Discharge, Thunder Wave, SonicBoom
    The Monotype Challenge
    Skarmory / lv70 / Steel Wing, Spikes, Night Slash, Fly

    Pearl
    With all eight badges under my belt, I received Waterfall from Janine, then traveled north to and then through Victory Road. After that, I defeated my rival, spent some time training, and adjusted my team's movesets. Eventually, I decided that I was ready to take on the Elite Four. The basic strategy for each battle was to start with Bastiodon, set up Stealth Rocks, then use Roar/Toxic until he was knocked out, leaving the opponent crippled to allow Empoleon and Bronzong to use super-effective moves to go for the win. With this strategy, I blew through Aaron and Flint and had a little less ease with Bertha Lucian; however, none of them were too difficult to defeat. After that, I used the same strategy to deal with Cynthia. For some reason she decided not to use super-effective moves (i.e. Aura Sphere with Lucario), so she really wasn't much of a problem.. Bastiodon managed to poison most of her team, and combined Roar plus Stealth Rocks to have them all a little weakened which allowed Empoleon and Bronzong (mostly Empoleon) to take her down.

    The Monotype Challenge
    Empoleon / lv64 / Surf, Ive Beam, Brick Break, Drill Peck
    The Monotype Challenge
    Bastiodon / lv60 / Stealth Rock, Toxic, Roar, Iron Head
    The Monotype Challenge
    Bronzong / lv61 / Psychic, Shadow Ball, Flash Cannon, Grass Knot

    X
    After defeating Wulfric, I spent some time training then traveled through Victory Road to reach the Pokemon Leage. Once there, I spent some time gathering a few TM's to enhance my team's movesets, then I spent a little bit more time training before taking on the final trainers standing in my way. First I took on Malva, who managed to defeat a lot of my team before I was able to defeat her. Then I took on Siebold in the Flood Chamber. He was only slightly difficult because I lacked super effective moves. After defeating Siebold, I challenged and defeated Wikstrom, a fellow Steel-type aficionado. Finally, I took on Drasna, the last member of the Elite Four. She was a pretty easy win thanks to my Fairy-types on board. Then it was time for Diantha. Her Gourgeist seemed to give me the most trouble, but overall she wasn't too difficult. After being entered into the Hall of Fame, the battle with AZ began. As usual, he was pretty easy to defeat!
