    You should be able to catch a Pansear in Pinswheel Forest a little later into the game, so there isn't really a reason to trade one in.

    1st Update, Water Challenge, Ruby:

    -started up the game, helped Professor Birch out with figuring out my name and gender
    -got out of that truck (who tells their kid to sit in the back of a moving truck?), settled in at home
    -said hi to Brendan, then saved Prof. Birch's ass from that Poochyena with Mudkip. Named the Mudkip Mudkipz....only to realize later that it would have that name when it evolves lol.
    -strolled on through Oldale Town and up to Route 103 to kick Brendan's ass
    -Returned home, got the Pokedex and the Running Shoes (why do kids need special kinds of shoes to run? Pretty sure May doesn't start the game with stilettos on)
    -went through Route 102, beating up the kids and taking their money, like a good trainer
    -got to Petalburg, bumped into Norman/Daddy (who apparently has nothing better to do than wait for me to get 4 badges. Dude, go home to Mom, I'm sure she's lonely)
    -Helped Wally catch his Ralts. And by helped I mean watch him do all the work while I smoked a blunt
    -Cut through Petalburg Woods, beating up more kids and taking their money. Hey, its me or them.
    -Defeated a Team Magma grunt. It seems that Hoenn's police and intelligence services are rather lacking, since a 12 year old has to deal with criminal organizations. Wait, I'm 21. But still.
    -Caught a Wingull, named it Trumpets (I'm gonna name all my pokes this time)
    -fought my way through to Rustboro, which was a bit annoying because all the trainers had Grass types for some reason.
    -made it to Rustboro, took on the Rock Gym. I think you can guess what happened. Geodudes+4x Water weakness+Water Gun=dead Geodudes. And a dead Nosepass.
    -saw a Magma grunt run away with the Devon Goods
    -got the HM for Cut, caught a Zigzagoon to be an HM slave. His name is Mr. Slave.

    FIRST UPDATE, BABY!

    *Got through the boring start, in which my CharMANder already evolved once.

    *Caught a male Glameow.

    *Named it King Charles. It's a dog breed, so, yeah... I might change it to just Charles later in the game.

    Had to level it up from lv4 to 5 using struggle 'cause this sassy cat only had Fake Out.

    *Started grinding levels for my liege while trying to think about what my next team member is going to be.

    reason is IIRC its a 5% chance, in rustling grass
    i'm just asking is all
    No, if one action prevents you from obtaining another Pokemon, you can't hack or trade said Pokemon in. In the case you used as an example, you can get Pansear if you look hard enough, and it will probably suck to look for but that's part of what makes it a challenge.

    I believe there's some confusion with what games I'm currently playing on in my ultimates. The list says that I'm doing Black and White for my Ultimate challenges of Ghost and Poison. I am doing a Poison and Ghost monotype on White and Black, respectively, but as single challenges. With the Ghost ultimate, I'm currently on Y, while with the Poison one, I'm currently playing Black 2; since my Sapphire deleted its data.

    Second update!

    * First battle with one of my rivals(Lucas from D/P I think. there are several in Light Platinum). Took some tries since I only used King Charles and he was weak like a baby.

    *Caught a female Spearow, named it Star(I always name my spearows that).

    * Made my way through Inhore woods. Another rival encounter in there, Kenta(Gold) this time.

    Did a short grinding for Star and evolved it while beating my first encounter with Team Steam, the criminal organization of the game.

    * I then proceeded to beat the Inhore city gym. Bug type, leader name: Jessica.
    Was easy with Star at my side <^V^>.

    * Got the much needed running shoes.

    * Did some mission involving running back and forth between two locations, fighting Kenta again and using honey to clear a Snorlax blocking the road.

    * Caught one of the Snorlax(There are two, but the second one is optional since it doesn't block the road). It is a male. Named it Chunkybutt.

    * Will now grind Chunks in the headbutt tree outside of Inhore city.


    Current team:

    The Monotype Challenge
    King Charles(Glameow). Level 36, male, Hardy.

    The Monotype Challenge
    Star(Fearow). Level 29, female, timid.

    The Monotype Challenge
    Chunkybutt(Snorlax). Level 18, male, relaxed.

    What happens if an opponent uses roar, and your HM slave gets dragged out? Does that mean that you lose the challenge?

    No, you just switch back again, and if you have no pokemon left except for the HM slave just try to lose on purpose or use revive if you have any, and switch back.
