    I'd love to join this, and the title of this challenge seems pretty straight forward, but honestly the first rule confuses me. I'm probably missing something super obvious, but what does "Your final team must consist of at least 2 Elite Four-viable Pokémon who share the type you specified in your sign up." mean?

    What pokemon wouldn't be considered viable? This confuses me, because I would assume at that point your entire team is made up of elite four viable pokemon of your specified type.

    This rule is there to prevent people from using a single Pokemon the entire game. So it's basically saying just to have at least two Pokemon that can fight the Elite Four.

    I feels so silly for misunderstanding that! I suppose because I would always try to flesh my team out as much as possible, the thought didn't cross my mind.

    Cheers for the clarification! :)

    Ultimate Fighting White Update

    Haven't been able to update in a while due to school. The most important things that happened are as followed.

    - I caught a Scraggy and nicknamed her Ronda. This should help me deal with those pesky psychic types!
    - I beat Burgh without any major issues and got the Insect Badge.
    - Dakim evolved into Gurdurr who I then traded in order to evolve him into Conkeldurr.
    - I faced of against N in Nimbasa City. The only problem I faced here was his Sigilyph that took down half my team. Luckily Teddy saved the day.
    - After having a repeat of the experience above with Elesa and her Aerial Ace Emolga, I managed to secure my victory and the Bolt Badge.
    - Compared to Elesa, the battle against Clay went smoothly and I nabbed an easy Quake Badge.
    - Finally I managed to defeat Bianca and got HM02 Fly.

    Current team:

    Quick question before I get too far into this. Since I'm using Omega Ruby, will I be able to use Pokemon found on mirage spots once they become available, or can I only use Pokemon that are officially in the Hoenn Pokedex?

    With that out of the way, update time!

    Ok making good progress in yellow so far. I lvled pikachu up to 14 and bought some potions so I could get brock over with and it was still a close thing but I beat him and moved on to Mt. Moon. 1/8
    Afterwards I rushed past as many trainers as I could to keep exp for my first mon. Made it to Mt. Moon and proceeded to capture the first member of the team Gene the Geodude.
    took my time leveling Gene up and he proved to be nearly unbeatable (barring the one time I got poisoned and died on the tile to heal at the pokemon center). Made it to Cerulean and proceeded straight to Bill's house to get the S.S. Ticket. Decided to grind a little at clear out Vermilion, nearby routes, and the S.S. Anne before returning to Cerulean for the gym. Despite my now high level Graveler still struggled a bit to defeat Misty but after 3 tries I got the badge. 2/8
    Blitzed my way to Rock Tunnel after making a slight detour to get Flash (also had to catch a few random pokemon to do so). After spending an hour and a half trying to find an Onix on the first level I look up its encounter rates on the 2 floors.
    After seeing its higher on the next one I change floors and immediately find my second member of the team Onyx the Onix.
    Left Rock Tunnel and returned to Vermillion for the third badge while grinding Onyx up with any trainers I managed to previously avoid. Also taught Onyx Dig so it can actually have a ground move.
    While Onyx put up a good effort once again its Gene who wins the badge. 3/8
    Returned to Rock Tunnel and the second floor.

    Gene the Geodude lvl. 38

    Onyx the Onix lvl. 20

    no named cut mon (bulbasaur if it matters)

    no named flash mon (pikachu if it matters)

    no named future fly mon (pidgey if it matters)

    no named future surf mon (squirtle if it matters)

    All but flash mon will be replaced by proper rock mons in the future.
    Really liking the run so far. Being all tanks is pretty great.

    Starting a new one.

    Username: calenlily
    Pokemon type: Flying
    Challenge mode: Single
    Game: Red

    Debated for a while over whether to play Red or FireRed, ultimately the temptation of getting to play with a first gen Gyarados again won out. Though I may well do this one in FireRed too at some point

    Alright, the OP is up to date as far as I can tell.

    I will be having this thread locked tomorrow evening, so if you have any issue with your entry in the OP then now is the time to say so!


    I have omitted any challenges for Sun and Moon that are not complete, since they don't particularly apply to the rules of this thread. A new version which includes Sun and Moon in the requirements of Ultimate will be posted by Volga, who will be taking over the challenge in my stead. Thank you so much for putting up with me these last few years. It's been quite the journey getting here, and it's not easy to let this thread go, for sure. But I gotta move on some time, there are other things to experience and hobbies to try. I will definitely be continuing to play Challenges, and fully intend to finish my Ultimate Bug Monotypes in due time (God I can't believe I started that thing in 2012).
