    Leaf Green, Soul Silver, Omega Ruby, Platinum, Black 2, Y (2/8)

    Alright, so I finally started on my Y run of this challenge. Actually, I started a while ago, but I haven't posted any updates yet, because I spent a lot of time soft resetting for natures. Anyway, I caught Scatterbug as my first Pokémon, defeated Viola with only Vivillon, then moved on to Lumiose to pick up Charmander. Moving on, I caught myself a Ducklett, and before reaching Ambrette(?) Town, I caught a Drifloon and a Bagon, as well. Before challenging Grant, I also caught a Hawlucha to complete my team. Grant was difficult, and in the end, I only had two Pokémon standing, and Hawlucha ended up taking the victory home. Anyway, here's my current team:

    Final Update: League Champion

    Done and dusted. Obviously the hardest Elites were Malva and the Champion. Malva for obvious Fire-type (and one Fire/Flaying for double trouble!) reasons. The Champions' Goodra and Mega-Gardevoir were the toughest, eventually I had to poison the mega with Toxic and let Teasel outlast it with Hyper Potions.

    Please do not post consecutively. I have noticed a few of you double posting the last few days. Thank you.
    Ohh gawd. I'm doing bug in leaf green. Didn't think about going against green and on top of that i gave him a charizard. I am about to fight Blaine So that will also be a challenge in itself. So it seems like I'll be grinding for years lol.
    My advice is to train at the island with the hot springs using the VS Seeker. You can run back and forth between the trainers outside and the springs to heal indefinitely. That's how I did it anyway. Pinsir used Rock Slide to beat Charizard. :)
    Hey guys, so I completed a dragon monotype last january, I finished my perfect platinum, black 2, Y and alpha sapphire run. The problem is that I recall jotting down notes and I even recall posting updates but I can't find my updates that show I finished it? I don't know if I still have the save files, do I redo them?
    As long as you post whatever relevant info you can recall, like what Pokemon you used, I see no reason you should have to replay everything. This whole forum is pretty heavy on the honor system.
    Afterwards Kronos visited the tower of the dead brushes his "rival" aside as he descends easily to the top with Wukong's help.
    Love your epic poetry version of Pokemon! It's very intriguing. However I must point out that one ascends a tower not descends. Descending means going down into.

    All that said, Updated through Post #1665! I'm going to start updating this thread every Sunday since I will now consistently have that day off. Thank you for being patient and as usual if I missed something please let me know.

    Honestly didn't even notice that mistake. Sometimes even when you know the right words you'll still somehow use the wrong ones anyway.

    Thank your for you reply

    So iirc used the same Pokemon I used in my Heart gold run for platinum so It was kingdra, dragonite, salamence, garchomp, altaria and latios.

    For black 2 i replaced latios with hydreigon.

    for Alpha sapphire i used the same team as black 2 but i also replaced altaria with goodra and my mega was mega salamence. (I also got pokemon Y which i used the same team on back in January as well since I knew Z wasn't going to come out and I needed kalos to finish my run)

    Have had a bit of a delay due to my save file going corrupt for some apparent reason. I restarted the game and have now replicated the levels of my previous save as well as caught Pokemon with the same nature as before, trying to make it as fair as possible.

    Red 721 Ground types:

    Spoiler: Brock
    I chose Terror the NidoranF as my starter(although I now realize Bunnelby was in there too, I also ran into some before and compeltely blanked on the fact that its a Ground type evo?). Our Rival had an Onix with Bind and we only had Scratch and Growl that was not fair at all. Later we caught Bean the Landorous outside Pallet. We caught Wafer the Trapinch out front of Viridian Forest(I once had a game where I named all my team after food and had Cookie the Flygon and later named another Flygon Biscuit in honor of Cookie and now it just seems wrong to stop this trend :P). We easily beat Brock's team but I dont recall what they were, Im getting it confused with another game Im doing so Idk.

    Spoiler: Misty
    We continued on and found Muddybuddy the Gligar(i like sweets and puppy chow is delicious???) out in front of Mt Moon. Unfortunatly the salesman's Pokemon was Croagunk not a Ground type. :< Inside of Mt Moon we found an Aggron and I realized I ran into Aron before and, like Bunnelby, didnt even think about catching, except this time its even dumber because I wanted to do Ground types so I could finally use Aggron? :'D So we caught him and named him Rood cause he used all my Pokeballs and he looks back sassily instead of having a backsprite so hes very rude. Terror evolved into Nidorina and we murdered everything in our path.

    At the moment we are on the SS Anne, team:

    Terror the Nidorina, Level 25
    Bite, Growl, Poison Sting, Double Kick

    Bean the Landorous, Level 25
    Outrage, Rock Tomb, Bulldoze, Rock Slide

    Wafer the Trapinch, Level 24
    Bite, Sand Attack, Bide, Bulldoze

    Muddybuddy the Gligar(not sure how he'll evolve), level 24
    Poison Sting, Sand Attack, Quick Attack, Aerial Ace

    Rood the Aggron, Level 24
    Headbutt, Tackle, Harden, Metal Claw

    Only one more spot in the team I cant wait to see what else there is please be a rhyhorn please be a rhyhorn

    Out of all of these, Ive used Nidoqueen, Gliscore(i feel like a spelled that wrong), and Flygon. Cant wait to see how everyone turns out. :3

    Steel Monotype on Y - Update 1
    -started new file
    -picked Fennekin as my starter Pokemon to make life easier for the first gym
    -Went through Viridian Forest Santalune Forest. It was kind of nice that they had Calem/Shauna/Tierno/Trevor move about and talk and do things in real-time as you made your way through the forest. Hopefully there'll be something like that in Sun/Moon
    -caught a Bidoof on Route 3, as I'll be needing an HM slave later and Bidoof/Bibarel is a fairly good one
    -made it to Santalune City
    -cleared the first Gym

    There should be some Steel types to catch soon. At least there's a fairly sizeable gap between the first and second gyms to give me time.
