    Update 3:

    After making my way through Mt. Moon we arrived at Cerulean City, going straight to Misty with Lavender taking the lead, as I taught him TM Bullet Seed that I picked up beforehand. Even though Paras was quite underleveled (6 levels lower), she managed to easily defeat Misty, earning us the second badge. So far my money has been going to Repels and Super Potions and it feels a bit weird to not run into Pokemon haha.

    On my way to Vermillion City I got a Meowth to be my Flasher and Cutter. Taking on all the trainers in the area and on the S. S. Anne we are now taking on Lt. Surge.

    Update 4:

    I took way too long with the switches in Lt. Surges gym, haha! Luckily Pine learned Dig from the Rocket Grunt's TM and we swept him pretty easily. The routes and tunnel to Lavender Town took a bit but Lavender carried us all the way through and learned Spore while at it, an amazing move I intend to use for the hard fights later in the game. Mint is falling off in usage for now but had his moment with Erika, destroying all her Pokémon with one Aerial Ace. In the Dpt. Store Pine could finally evolve into Flareon and as soon as he learns a fire move Sunny Day will see way more usage. For now, I'm getting ready to grab the Leftovers from Snorlax and tackle the Silph Co.

    Update 5:

    Our second big challenge came in the form of Koga. After clearing the Rocket Hideout and obtaining the Silph Scope, we made our way to free Mr. Fuji and then take the Cycling Road to Fuchsia City, grabbing Fly and Strenght. Since my team was close enough in levels I tried beating Koga. It was not pretty. His Muk gave us massive trouble, high defense, high attack on Sludge, constant poison with Toxic and Minimize and Acid Armor spam made Dig absolutely useless and Lavender was one-shot crit by Sludge. After trying out some strategies I settled on an X Speed and X Attack on his first Koffing (after making sure not to get poisoned or Smokescreen'd) and then used Spore and Slash on Muk until it died. Overall I needed 19 resets until it got the perfect run. The rest of his team was easily defeated and we are moving on to clear the Silph Co. building. Team-wise I will move Sunny Day over to Pine in the future and teach Return to Mint. Lavender will learn Growth soon to replace Thief.

    Update 6:

    Silph Co. and Sabrina were super easy, Pine demolished her with Bites and Lavender took care of Giovanni. While on our way to Blaine I grabbed the two Leftovers and gave them to Lavender and Pine for now, teaching Mint Return after a nice sweep through the fire gym thanks to Dig and Secret Power. I actually forgot that Growth doesn't interact with Sunny Day on Gen III and I'm now thinking of teaching Lavender Solar Beam, but I'm not sure yet. Spor & Growth is probably the better strategy. Since I got a Meowth as HM slave I might grind until I can get Hidden Power.
    Time is sadly tight and I have to cut it short here. More details next time!

    Update 7:

    I think I ran into an impasse and need your help to decide what to do. It was smooth sailing, Giovanni went down without a hitch, I made my way through Victory Road and the Elite 4 with relative ease until I stood before Lances' Aerodactyl. It just demolishes my whole team with one attack, being super fast as well, so I can't Spore it. I tried different strategies but nothing works, Fearow, Parasect, and Flareon are just no match for an Aerodactyl, they are barely scratching it. On Gen III my options in terms of movepool are also abysmal and I tried everything I could without cheating. My only option here is overleveling massively, which removes any challenge after the flying devil is defeated and I really dislike, or I have to call it here. I'll post my current team so you can try to come up with a strategy if you want but I don't see a way out of this. It was fun while it lasted tho!

    I am gonna do Sword, because it is a little easier.

    1. Choose one organization to join (ex. Macro Cosmos, Team Yell, A evil team from another region, or any organization (real or fictional) you can think of). Look for atleast four battle-able trainers that are not already a part of that organization and, after beating them, note them as "recruits."
    Dusknoir (Ghost, Administrator, Literature)
    Grimmsnarl (Nordic, New Year's, Fairy, Classical, Muscular, Mythical, Variety of colors, Literature) (I know, it technically starts out kind of magenta, but it really fits you otherwise)
