just found this...

beat first and second gym with Prinplup easily, 3rd with Empoleon and Rampardos, 4th and 5th with Empoleon, Rampardos and Drifblim, and 6th with Them and Lucario. I then looked for a gible, and after a day of many crits, I finally caught one, and raised it and Lucario. Currently in the house in the snow route.

EDIT: No ones, posting -,-...next part!

Today, I started in the beautiful Snowpoint gym. I battled a few trainers, then Destroyed the rest of the snowballs. I went to the pokecenter to heal my pokemon, but when I came back, the snowballs were there again. I was sad. D: But thankfully, it was easy. I destroyed the snowballs again and headed to fight Candice. First, I sent out Lucario, while she sent out Snover. I used force palm, getting to just past half. Snover used ingrain, healing it but insuring it won't be able to switch out. I used force palm on it again, beating it. She sent out Medicham, so I switched Lucario for Drifblim. The Medicham used Detect, making Ominous Wind not hit it. Candice then switched Medicham back for Sneasel, which took 1/4 damage from Ominous Wind. He used taunt, while I flew up. Then he used taunt again...While I hit him with fly, getting him to red. Candice healed Sneasel using a hyper potion, While I used gust. The Sneasel used faint Attack, getting Drifblim to red, then I flew up. For some reason, I attacked first (probably because it used Avalanche) and beat it. Though, Drifblim also fainted due to the hail. Candice sent out Abomasnow, while I sent out Pulpip (Empoleon). I used rock smash, doing 1-4 and lowering defense. It used avalanche...doing 8 damage. I used rock smash again, lowing defense again. Again Abomasnow used Avalanche. Candice then used a hyper potion, healing abomasnow. Pulpip used rock smash, then Abomasnow used Swagger. I got lucky and hit it, beating the giant yeti. Next it was Medicham vs Pulpip. It used Ice Punch, and to finish it, I got out of Confusion and used peck, beating it. I am currently saved infront of a Galactic member in the basement of the warehouse.

yay! a filler!


Today, I started in the water before the league, and made it to victory road. After many battles, I finally got out, healed my team, battled Barry, healed agin, then looked at my pokedex. I needed 12 pokemon. Mesprit, Uxie, Azelf, Tentacool, Spiritomb, Milotic, Bronzong, Vespiquen, Infernape, Palkia and one other. either 108 or 114...So I found Mesprit and let it run, and I am currently saved infront of Azelf, but I'm going to go buy Dusk Balls after seeing they are waaay better then Ultra Balls. Also, I used 5 rare candies to make Gabite a Garchomp

today, i started infront of Birtha, heading onto flint. I beat his team easily with Pulpip and Garchomp.

Her next pokemon, Garchomp took 2 aura spheres, 3 surfs, 1 shadow ball and a quick attack before finally going down. My pulpip countered Milotic, giving me a chance to heal up my team. Everyone else one her team lost to Garchomp. I actually won...yay! I went to the elder in celestic town, and recorded my final pokemon, palkia (my last ones before I faced cynthia were Spiritomb and Milotic) and got the poke radar. after many attempts of chaining Starly, I left and caught buizel and Bidoof, and taught bidoof cut. I went to eterna forest, and caught Rotom in the *shutter* haunted house. I went to the battle tower, and did a battle. I saved after battle 1.

This isn't exactly a recent event (it happened a few months ago) but it still haunts me and I felt the need to share it.

I was playing my Pearl version, trying to fill my Pokédex, and I went into the Safari Zone for some reason. (Maybe to catch a Croagunk...?) As a rule, I don't really go to the Safari Zone, because I'm always afraid I'll encounter a runaway shiny.

Well guess what happened.

A wild shiny Quagsire appeared. I didn't wanna throw anything in case it ran away. One ball, and it ran. I was so disappointed. Had it been anywhere else in the game, I would've nailed that sucker.


I think I'll stick to my "No Safari Zone Rule" more adamantly from now on...

Diamond: I haven't posted in ages, so I'll just recap everything I've done since I last played. I completed most of my TM collection. The only ones missing are the Battle Frontier Shop exclusives. I hunted many Chanseys and Pikachu for a Lucky Egg and Light Ball respectively. Coincidently, I managed to find one of each just a day apart from each other. I bought and then spent coins at the Game Corner to obtain the Silk Scarf, Wide Lens, Zoom Lens and Metronome.

Current goals: Train all my (in-game) team members to Level 100. They are currently at Level 79-80.
Beat the Battle Tower-and obtain all the Battle Tower prizes.

Started platinum as part of my all region challenge *see sig for info*, I picked Piplup as my starter. After that tedious tutorial part in Platinum I got myself a Shinx, I defeated the other trainers in Route 202, and arrived in Jubilife City where I got a Town Map and a Poketch, I healed up my pokemons and challenged my rival and defeated him. I defeated the trainers in route 203 and the Oreburgh gate, I got HM06 and I arrived in Oreburgh City, I went to the mine and found the Gym leader, I healed my pokemon and went inside his gym to challenge him, where my Piplup took care of his pokemon and evolved after the battle into a Prinplup

Switched back to Platinum after playing about halfway through HG (at E4 right now).

Got the badge in Snowpoint, did all of the stuff with Galactic and Giratina, went to the electric gym and easily beat everyone there with Torterra and Swampert. Earthquake and Mud Bomb, respectively.

Now I'm using the VS Seeker on random trainers to prepare for Victory Road and the E4. Most of my team is in their low to mid 40s so I'm trying to get them all to level 48-50.

After defeating the first gym I went back to Jubilife, defeated team galactic and went through the little cave into Fleorama town, I got rid of team galactic there aswell, and my Shinx evolved into a Luxio, I got through the Eterna Forest, I leveled up arround eterna city a bit and got HM01 cut, I challenged the gym, and after about 12 tries I finally defeated her. She is kind of hard having a water and a electric pokemon :c.

Powered through the E4 pretty easily today, except for Cynthia. All of my Pokemon are below level 51. The lowest is level 47.

This is what is actually happening in the battle. Posting as it happens. It's gonna be a lengthy post, and I'm sure nobody will read it, but I love telling stories.

First match: Spiritomb vs. Shiny Staraptor

As soon as the battle started, I took my chances and used a Dire. Hit coupled with Brave Bird, knowing a critical-hit would take out Spiritomb in one hit. Voila! It worked! Spiritomb was OHKO'd, but Staraptor sustained serious damage due to recoil, though. Down to 2 HP, LOL.

Next up is Togekiss vs. Luxray

My Staraptor won't survive Togekiss's Aura Sphere, so I switch out to Luxray. I used the wrong freaking move by mistake. I meant to use Thunder Fang, but used Crunch instead. So I came up with a new tactic, and that's to use more Battle Items. I used an X Spec. Def, allowing me to take an extra hit. Thunder Fang took Togekiss's HP down to the orange area and paralyzed it, but when I tried to attack again, Cynthia switched to Garchomp, causing Thunder Fang to miss. I immediately switched back to Staraptor, knowing that Garchomp will try to use Earthquake on my Luxray.

Garchomp vs. Staraptor

Due to Earthquake missing, it bought me time to heal my Staraptor back to full health, and ready to battle again. Her Garchomp is faster than all of my Pokemon, so getting a hit in before I can heal is not going to happen. So now the spamming of Hyper Potions begins. I plan to make Garchomp get rid of as much PP as possible, also praying for a missed attack. I have a whopping 65 Hyper Potions, and a few Full Restores. This will take a while. Fifteen minutes and 20 Hyper Potions later... BY THE GODS AN ATTACK FINALLY MISSED. I take advantage of this miss, and select Brave Bird. THE GODS ARE ON MY SIDE, another attack of Garchomp's missed! That's two in a row! Brave Bird roughly took away 40% of Garchomp's HP. Back to spamming Hyper Potions. Another attack of Garchomp's missd, so I use Brave Bird again. Garchomp strikes first, and brings Staraptor's HP down to 39. Brave Bird hits and brings Garchomp's health down to where it's almost in the red, but it uses a Sitrus Berry, bring it back to roughly 50% HP. I'm tired of spamming Hyper Potions, so I let Garchomp take out Staraptor. Enter Swampert, who knows Avalanche.

Garchomp vs. Swampert

Swampert joins the battle, I select Avalanche. Since Garchomp strikes first, Avalanche will be even more powerful. Avalanche takes out Garchomp! Swampert retreats and Gardevoir joins the battle. Cynthia sends out Roserade.

Roserade vs. Gardevoir

This one was pretty easy. My Gardevoir has an EPIC Special Attack and Special Defense stat. I start with Calm Mind, and just my luck, Roserade uses Energy Ball. It always used Toxic or Sludge Bomb before. Gardevoir still had about 40% of her HP left. Knowing that it will use Energy Ball again, I switch to Houndoom.

Roserade vs. Houndoom

Luck is not on my side at the moment, it decided to use SLUDGE BOMB instead. My Gardevoir would've taken it out :( Houndoom is left with hardly any HP. The next turn, it takes a critical hit, after I healed him, and faints.

Roserade vs. Gardevoir, Round 2

This really was just spamming more potions until Gardevoir took a Critical Hit and fainted :(. Luckily Roserade's PP was nearly gone (at least for Energy Ball and Sludge Bomb). Switched to Luxray and revived Staraptor. I let Luxray faint.

Roserade vs. Staraptor

ANOTHER CRITICAL HIT from Extrasensory. WTF. I switched back to Swampert just so I could revive Gardevoir again. Swampert faints.

Roserade vs. Torterra

At this point I just want to get the stupid battle over with so I'm gonna stop typing here. Will update the post with results later. I'm just going to spam more potions (and reviving my other Pokes) until it can only use Extrasensory. Torterra finally faints.

Ok, back in action! I switched to Houndoom since Roserade could only use Extrasensory and Toxic.

Roserade vs. Houndoom

Roserade survived one Flamethrower from Houndoom, so I just use another and it faints. Roserade did hit Houndoom with Toxic, though. I switch out Houndoom for Gardevoir. Cynthia sends out Milotic.

Milotic vs. Gardevoir

Thanks to Gardevoir's high Sp. Def, she can take 2 hits before fainting. I take advantage of this and begin healing some of my other Pokemon. Also it keeps wanting to use Mirror Coat even though it fails every time. LOL. This allowed me to revive all of my Pokemon, and fully heal 2 or 3 of them. Gardevoir used Future Sight. Then Calm Mind, after Mirror Coat failed again. And again. And again. This woman is supposed to be the Champion? Finally Milotic used Surf, and I continued to use Calm Mind. I plan to use it until I can't use it anymore, then use Magical Leaf. By now, her Surf is only doing like 10 damage each time. A few turns later my Pokemon are fully healed, and ready to help at any given moment. Ok, I can't use Calm Mind anymore, my Gardevoir's Sp. Atk and Sp. Def are now multiplied by 4, pretty much making her invincible. So it's time to attack. I use Magical Leaf and it takes out Milotic in ONE HIT. There is light at the end of the tunnel! Up next, Lucario.

Lucario vs. Gardevoir

Since Gardevoir's Sp. Atk is maxed out, I'm going to take my chances and use Psychic even though it won't be super effective. Lucario uses Stone Edge and nearly knocks out Gardevoir. I use Psychic and it kills Lucario in one hit as well. Her last Pokemon is a paralyzed Togekiss. I know I have the battle won now. Togekiss is too slow when paralyzed.

Togekiss vs. Gardevoir

I simply used Psychic and defeated Togekiss. VICTORY!!! The MVP award goes to Gardevoir for sure.

That was the LONGEST battle I've ever had in that game. By far. Holy cow. I used over 40 Hyper Potions and 15 revives.

Now it's time to go the place where I can do gym rematches, so I can send my HeartGold team to Platinum to train, then send them back to HG. It's much easier training with the VS Seeker and Platinum gym rematches than it is training in HG.

After defeating the second gym, I decided to use my gastly I caught earlier, I took out a hm slave, and went to defeat team galactic in their little building. I got a Bike, and an explorers kit and went to the cycling route, which was good exp for my gastly, I went through mt coronet, and before Heartrome city I got a Roselia. My Gastly evolved into a Haunter which I evolved into a Gengar. In heartrome city I easily took care of the gym thanks to my Gengar.

Well, I restarted Platinum, and I've just beaten Gardenia. It's been easy sailing so far, just considering my next few team members.

Ezra the Prinplup (level 21)
Aston the Luxio (level 21)

I must say, I was rather lucky to get Juliet; it took ages to get a female though!

I'm planning on playing through Platinum before B2W2 comes out, mainly because I've never actually beaten Platinum. I've always restarted the game before I get to the whole Stark Mountain thing (I never manage to get my National Dex). I'm really determined to play through the game completely and beat it. Here's hoping.

So, after meeting Professor Rowan, who is basically the coolest Professor in the series (sorry Juniper), I chose Turtwig as my starter, as always. I named him Larry, which is what I've always been planning on naming a dog when I get one. Till then...

I also caught a Kricketot, because I'm planning on using a bunch of more underrated guys in my team (planning on a Lumineon and Abomasnow as well). And for once, I didn't catch a Starly.

Played Platinum for the first time in a while because I've really missed it! I went through my PC boxes and found a Jirachi I got in a trade a while go. I decided to EV train it, so I put it in my party with one of my Pokerus infected Pokemon. After a few battles, Jirachi had the Pokerus too. I then gave it vitamins and then battled a bunch of Pokemon. Once I was done, I took it to the Elite Four and the Battleground for training.

I also checked my Pokedex to see how close I am to finishing it. I have over 400 Pokemon owned, and most of the ones I don't have are just evolved forms of Pokemon I already have. I might complete it soon.

After defeating the 4th gym, I helped dawn get her pokedex back, I got Hm fly, and went on my way to Pastoria City defeated the trainers, and when I arrived in Pastoria I defeated my rival and that gym was roselia/luxray fodder. :D After I defeated the gym I took care of that team galactic grunt, and went on my way to Route 210, where I evolved my Prinplup into an Empoleon.

I have recently decided to take up chaining as a hobby, and I have had great success thus far, obtaining both forms of Shellos and five Electrike. I find that going for the swarm Pokemon of the day is by far the easiest approach. Also, chaining on Platinum is far easier to see than on Diamond and Pearl, allowing me to take my DS places and chain instead of being shut up in a dark room concentrating on the patches. I am considering (and have actually already started) synchronizing shinies for good natures and started a 100% legitimate all shiny competitive team. In order to gain money for repels, I found the best way is to walk down the street with DS in tow battling rich people repetitively via Vs. Seeker.

- I updated my Pokemon movesets.
- Obtained all the backdrops from the Daily lottery draw.
- After several strolls in Amity Square, I finally obtained every single item possible
- Completed my berry and Pokeball seals collection.
- Obtained all the massage accessories.

EDIT: I had a random encouter with a shiny Shellos (West Sea forme), which I caught. Image (http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7097/7302184284_31127b9c0e_z.jpg).

A few days ago, I decided to restart my Platinum version. (again)

After training and evolving my team, I went into Roark's gym. Here was my team status:
Bibarel - Lv. 17
Monferno - Lv. 16
Luxio - Lv. 16
Staravia - Lv. 16
Alakazam - Lv. 16
Roselia - Lv. 17

A bit overkill, I think.

The end result was my Bibarel flattening every one of his Pokémon easily. It grew to Lv. 18 aswell.

Today I worked more on my team. I battled somewhere around 40 pokemon in the north of Sinnoh (Acuity Lakefront {bottom part} to be exact). This extra exp caused a level gain in houndoom as well as a few in luxio and carnivine. I will be doing a few more encounters in hope to catch up the later two (luxio and carnivine) for my rotational team which will be:

leafeon, carnivine, whiscash, houndoom, staraptor, alakazam, mamoswine, and garchomp (I think that is it but I may have left like 2 out...)

Since my last post, I have caught several Pokémon, and made it to the Eterna City. After catching, training, and evolving my Cleffa, I went into the gym to battle the leader, Gardenia.

Here was my team right before the match. I replaced Bibarel with Clefairy btw.

Luxio - Lv. 20
Clefairy - Lv. 21
Alakazam - Lv. 21
Staravia - Lv. 21
Monferno - Lv. 21
Roselia - Lv. 22

Fun fact: My Monferno is shiny.

After several exchanges of attacks, and one Super Potion each, followed by another few exchanges of attacks, Luxio took out Turtwig.

So I switched in my Clefairy when her Cherrim came out. Gardenia used another Super Potion when Cherrim was about to faint. A waste of effort. I took it down a few turns later with a combination of Ice Beam and Return.

She sent in her Roserade, so I bought out my Monferno. Not wanting to delay her defeat any longer, I used Overheat. A one hit KO.

And the match ended.

Started a new game, I am gonna post here my whole adventure so don't miss anything ;D
I watched the red Gyarados show, and then I talked to my mom, but I kinda didn't listen to her cuz she's boring lolz. Went to Barry's house, and like usual he's being super hyper, and then walked back inside. I went to his room and he was packing! Apparently I'll have to pay 10000 pokeuros (lol) if I dont go to the lake quickly? Oh Barry! I went to the lake, found Barry in the meantime, and then saw this old pedophile guy with a little girl. Apparently it's Prof. Rowan! They left, but left a case too! We checked the case, but got attacked by two Starly! It's sad we can't even scare them away really. We took two Pokemon from the case, in my case, a Piplup. We pwned Starly afterwhile lol. See what I did there, cuz Piplup used Pound to attack, and Pound sounds like Pwned lol. Dawn came back for the briefcase, and then we all went away, and saw Dawn and Prof. Rowan, and Prof. Rowan saw our Pokemon and left with Dawn. We went back home and saved.

Whee, after I got bored of my platinum Nuzlocke Run, I started one on my Pearl game. I'll write my adventures here, for you all to read. 'Cause I'm nice like that.

I apologize in advance for the HUGE amount of text here.

Main Character - Katniss
Rival - Peeta

After watching the show about the magical red Gyarados, I went downstairs and my mum blabbered about Peeta coming over. I went over to his house, and just as I was about to knock on the door, he opened it and slammed right into me! He shouted loudly, then apologized and went inside. I followed him inside, and went up to his room. He picked up a bag, and told me to come to the lake. He threatened that if I didn't get there in time, he'd fine me a ridiculous amount of money. He wooshed pass me, and I made my way out of his house. I had just got to the exit of Twinleaf Town when the son of a Bibarel dragged me towards the lake. I unwillingly followed him, and was forced to listen to him chatter on about finding a special pokemon at our nearby lake. We got to the clearing next to the lake, when some strange old man exclaimed ''WELP, NOTHING TO SEE HERE!'' and shoved right past us. A young man, about our age, came up to us. ''Sorry, folks. The professor can be a bit... odd sometimes.'' He said, as he looked at me. I nodded, and then he walked away, following the older man. Peeta made some snarky remark about the boys clothing, then said something incredibly stupid. ''Hey, look! They left a briefcase! Let's go get it!'' I objected instantly, reminding him that there are wild pokemon in the tall grass. He disregarded what I said, and once again dragged me towards it. He let go of my arm infront of the case, and examined it from the side. ''Wonder what's in it?'' He said, as he struggled to open it. Just as he opened it, two angry-looking Starlys flew out of the forest around us, and tackled us to the ground! In a struggle to get to my feet, my hand came in contact with something round. Thinking it was a rock, a flung it at the bird. Instead, a right light trickled out of the ball and took the form of a money. It looked feminine, and even though in it's battle stance, calm. It scratched the bird several times before the Starly retreated. It walked towards me with a worried look, and offered to help me up. I noticed it had a collar with the word ''CHIMCHAR'' engraved on it. I took it's offer and got to my feet. I looked towards Peeta and found him jumping from joy at the sight of me and this Chimchar. He had a blue Penguin at his side. ''Fwuaaah!~ Katniss, your pokemon rocked!'' He said. I asked him what he meant by 'mine', as I clearly did not own this pokemon. He stopped jumping, and a look of concern came across his face. ''Oh yeah... They're not ours...'' I nodded, and suggested we find the professor and return his briefcase. ''Aw... Fine...'' Peeta said, clearly disappointed. I picked up the case and headed towards Twinleaf Town, with Peeta sulking behind me. It was not until we had exited the forest that I noticed the Chimchar was sitting on my shoulder. I smiled, but soon turned serious again. It was not mine. I had to return it. Just as this thought had crossed my mind, the blue-haired boy came running towards us. ''Th-there it is!'' He panted. ''I'm glad you found the suitcase! If I'd lost it, the prof would've freaked out!'' I handed the briefcase to him, and he glanced at the pokemon resting on my shoulder. ''Did you..? Oh man. The prof won't be happy... I mean, I have nothing against you using the pokemon, but the prof...'' As if on cue, the professor approached us. ''Lucas! Did you find the suitcase?'' He said, not taking notice to the pokemon by mine and Peeta's sides. ''Ah, good boy. I knew I could trust yo-'' He paused. He looked at the Chimchar and the Penguin. ''You... You used these pokemon?'' He asked. I nodded. He circled me, making sounds like 'hmph' and 'mhm' whilst doing so. Peeta stood impatiently behind me, not being acknowledged even once. ''Alright.'' said the professor. ''Lucas, I'm going back to the lab.'' He said, and left. Lucas stood where he was for a while, just staring in the professors direction. ''Uh... It was nice meeting you. Looks like I've gotta go.'' He murmured, and left. ''Yeah, leave, professors pet.'' Peeta snarked from behind me. ''Come on Katniss, let's go home.''

Back at home, I told my mother about the events that had occurred today, as she prepared our meal. ''The professor you met must have been Prof. Rowan. He lives in Sandgem Town, just to the east of here.'' She said. After a meal in silence, my mum suggested that I go explain to the professor why I had not choice but to use his pokemon. She pulled out a box from behind the couch, and gave it to me. ''Here you go, dear. Put these on. They're running shoes.'' She informed me. ''I was going to give you them tomorrow, but now seems like a better time.'' I thanked her and put them on. A perfect fit! ''Go on, dear. I'll clean up here.'' I smiled and left. I decided to test my shoes out, and ran for Sandgem Town. I hardly noticed the little monkey beside me. We ran towards the town together, and arrived in no time. As I approached the laboratory, the boy from before, Lucas, came into view. I walked over to him, and he told me that he'd been waiting for me. He led me to the lab, and just as we were about to enter, Peeta ran out and slammed into me. ''What the...'' He said, confused. ''Oh, Katniss it's just you! ... And red-hat.'' He shot Lucas an annoyed look. ''That old guy,'' He continued, ''Is not scary so much as he is totally out there!'' I tilted my head and asked him what he meant. ''Aww, it doesn't matter, Kat. I'm outta here. See ya!'' He said, and breezed by us. ''... What on earth was that? Your friend is in such a rush.'' Lucas sighed. ''Anyway... Let's go in.'' I followed him through the huge double doors into the professors lab. ''So you finally got here!'' Prof. Rowan exclaimed. ''Catnip, was it?'' Katniss, I murmur. ''Ah, of course. Let me see that pokemon again.'' He says. The little monkey steps forward, and Prof. Rowan examines it. ''Hmm... I see...'' He says. ''This pokemon seems rather happy. All righty then! I'll give that Chimchar to you as a gift!'' He chimes. I give him a look of disbelief, and he just smiles. ''Would you like to nickname her?'' He asks. I hesitate, then nod. I decide to name her Lockette. ''What a fine name that is!'' The prof. says. ''Your friend Peeta told me what happened at the lake. I heard you battled very well, despite it being your first time!'' I blush, knowing that that is not the truth, but in fact it was Lockette whom battled for me. ''... And form what I can see, there is a growing bond between you and Loosette, even she is young!'' Lockette, I correct him. ''Yes, yes, Lockette. Lets move on to the main topic! There is something I'd like you to do for me...'' Rowan says. ''My name is Rowan. I study pokemon!'' He chirps. Pretty obvious, I think. ''First of all, I want to know what kinds of pokemon live in Sinnoh. To do so, it is necessary to collect data using the Pokedex.'' He informs me. ''This is what I wish to ask you. I want to entrust you with this Pokedex. Will you use it to record data on all the pokemon in Sinnoh for me?'' Prof. Rowan asks. I just stare at him for a while, wondering if this is some practical joke, When Lucas nudges me and I blurt out a 'Yes'. ''Hm! Good answer!'' He smiles, and hands me the pokedex. ''It's a very high-tech device. It will automatically record data on every kind of pokemon you encounter!'' Then whats the point of me using it, if it already has the data stored in it?! I think. ''Katniss, I ask that you go everywhere and meet every kind of pokemon in this region! Good luck!'' He chirps, and shoos me and Lucas out of the lab. ''Uh. Okay.'' Lucas says. ''I want to show you a few things before we set of. Come, follow me!'' I tag along behind me as he shows me the Pokemon Center and the PokeMart. ''Katniss... You should tell your mother you'll be helping us before you go. You'll be going far away... You should let somebody know before you leave.'' He suggests. I nod in agreement, and say that I'll be back shortly.

I sprint towards Twinleaf, and enter my house. I tell my mother what I will be doing, and she acts absolutely overjoyed, but I see the tear rolling down her cheek. She hugs me And whispers ''Good luck.'' I feel my bag weighing a bit more that before, and as my mum releases me from her embrace, she winks at me. Though our sad moment is interrupted as Peeta's mother comes in through the door. She looks white as a ghost. ''I-Is Peeta here?'' She asks. ''Oh? No, he isn't.'' My mother replies. ''O-Oh... He sh-shouted something about going on an adventure, a-and bolted... I... I wanted him to have th-this...'' She whimpers. ''Kat could deliver it to him!'' My mother says cheerily. ''He'll be fine, Fiona.'' ''Oh, th-thank you, Katniss!'' She sobs back, and hands me a parcel. ''H-He'll probabley be at J-J-Jubilife City by n-now...'' Peeta's mother stutters. I smile at them both, and leave the house. As I head for route 201, I know I have a great adventure in front of me.

We went to Sandgem and finally got our Piplup officially. So after all that, we kept walking to Jubilife, and met the Poketch guy, and received a Poketch! We also defeated our rival, and trained. We got to Oreburgh City and saw Barry again, who said the gym leader was at the mine. We went there and he went back to the gym. We went back to the gym but right before challenging Roark, our Piplup got to level 16 and evolved into Prinplup! We OHKO'd Geodude, Onix and defeated Cranidos in three hits. We did not lose any Hit Points in this battle.

I restarted Platinum, and went with Piplup. Did a few resets to get the right nature. I was aiming for Calm, but a few resets later I got myself a Modest one. Since I was too lazy to go anymore, I just went with the Modest Piplup.

After that, storyline stuff, Sandgem Town, got Parcel, bla bla bla. I reached Jubilife and after doing the compulsory stuff and getting a Town Map and a Poketch, I ventured north to train. Right now, my Piplup has just evolved into Prinplup. I'm now headed to Oreburgh.

SR for natures was how I ended up with my shiny Torchic on Sapphire.

Ahem. I've made it to Fantina. My team is as follows:
Alakazam - Lv.25
Monferno - Lv.26
Roserade - Lv.26
Staravia - Lv.26
Clefairy - Lv.26
Luxio - Lv.26

Yes, I traded over a Shiny Stone to evolve my Roselia. Big deal.

Alakazam vs. Duskull
That didn't take much. Duskull was a one-hit wonder.
I switch. Luxio vs. Mismagius.
Ew. Nasty Shadow Ball. Luxio fainted. Roserade's up. Mismagius is down.
Haunter? Meh *heals Roserade*. Shadow Claw? On a Haunter? WEAK. Enjoy your Stun Spore. I bet you weren't expecting Roserade to do so much damage to you, Haunter.

The Relic Badge is mine.
Alakazam and Roserade each gained a level.

Pokédex progress
Seen: 085
Obtained: 059
The higher than normal increase in numbers is due to me sending a surplus of trade shop Pokémon from my HG to Platinum.

I did some work on my Pokedex in Platinum recently. I mainly just evolved a few Pokemon from the early part of the National Dex, like Pidgey, Rattata, etc. Yesterday, I did some breeding on Platinum for the first time in quite a while. I was breeding for a Cranidos, which I'm planning to use on Black 2 (planning on importing a Japanese copy). I was worried that it would take a long time to get a Cranidos with good IVs, but fortunately the first one I hatched had everything I wanted. I then transferred that Cranidos and a bunch of other Pokemon to my White.

SR for natures was how I ended up with my shiny Torchic on Sapphire.

That's cool. I never got a shiny from nature SRs.

So I got my badge from Roark. Storyline progressing, I traveled to Floaroma, where I got the Honey after bashing some Galactic Grunts. I slathered some to the honey trees. After some waiting, lots of Cherubi and Burmy later, I stumbled upon a Heracross.

... Time for some more resetting. Looking for a Jolly one, found like 3 Modest and a few Timid so far. And tons of other natures, but no Jolly >_>

Some timeskip later, I finally got a Jolly Hera :D I leveled him up to match Pingu's level (4 levels lower, actually), before clearing the Valley Windworks. Pachirisu is an amazing Exp. fodder, though he's kinda rare. Then I headed for Eterna City, going through the forest. Cynthia gave me Cut, got the Explorer Kit, yada yada. I taught Cut to Pingu... just because I'm too lazy to get a Bidoof. I'll replace it later on after I got myself a Bibarel >_>

Then I trained a bit more to get my team to L25, before challenging Gardenia. She's one of my favorite trainer btw, the other being Cynthia Turtwig set up a nice Reflect when I pit Pingu against him, so I switched and let Regulus break the wall. Cherrim got a critical hit with Magical Leaf on Pingu (but he survived with 8 HP ^^), and Roserade got 1KO with Aerial Ace from Reg.

I thought about catching Rotom... Then decided not to, since I'm not using him anyway. I cleared the rest of the Old Chateau though, and after that the Eterna Galactic HQ. Got a bike and a Togepi egg, then off to Route 206. I wanted to get a Gligar. Since getting a wild one with preferable nature would be very vexing, I decided to breed it instead. Which is lucky since I found a female one on the first try XD

I might go off route and head to Solaceon first, before challenging the Hearthome Gym. I wanted Gligar to help with the gym, so yeah. Breeding time. And while I'm there, I'll go catch a Ralts and breed them as well to get a ton of Synchronizers.

... It seems though you can't get past Hearthome because there's these two dudes blocking the way >_> So I decided to go Gligar hunting and hopefully find a good natured one in a short time. Thankfully, I did. XD I got an Impish and a Jolly Gligar pretty quick. Now I'm deciding which one to use between the two, lol. I ran an IV calculator just for fun, and... the Impish Gligar's lowest IV is Def and likewise, the Jolly one's is Speed. Talk about irony.

I decided to go with the Jolly one, since its IVs are better overall... Not that it really matters though, lol. Then I went through Wayward Cave, "rescued" Mira and got TM26, which is now on Gligar. I wanted to challenge Fantina but my team is around L29, so I plan on leveling up a bit more... Maybe until I get Pingu to learn Brine at L33.

I got my third badge. After that, I headed to Solaceon, meeting Barry on the way. Continuing on, I cleared the Lost Tower (though I still need to come again later with Defog). I bought a batch of MooMoo Milk (love how you can get them for a dozen at once) and after that headed to Veilstone.

I thought of breeding a batch of Ralts to get good-natured Synchronizers, but then I noticed that the one I caught in the wild was a Modest one with Synchronize, which is good enough. For now, I'll go with her and try to get a Modest-natured Mesprit later on, unless I feel like breeding for a Calm one.

In Veilstone, I went ahead and moved on to Route 214 first to get a Razor Fang, then evolved Gligar. And while I was there, I battled the people there while abusing Vs. Seeker, raising my team up to L37 before challenging Maylene. I actually went ahead to Pastoria first to get Gliscor learn Fire Fang, and got Tropius while I was there. I thought of buying Ice Beam TM for Pingu, but I didn't have enough money. XD

Moving on.. Veilstone's Mart is lovely, because you can get a whole bunch of Lava Cookies there. $400 cheaper than Full Heal, with the same effect? Why not? XD I sold all my remaining Awakenings, Paralyze Heals, Antidotes, Ice Heals, Burn Heals and Full Heals after that. Lava Cookie is much more worth it. :3

After challenging Maylene (all her Pokemon got one-shot >_>) I went and bought some coins... Still not enough. Ah, the good old times when Ice Beam TMs only cost, what, 4000 coins instead of 10,000. Then I continued on Route 214 and Valor Lakefront, and with the Amulet Coin + Vs. Seeker, I finally got enough coins for an Ice Beam TM ^_^

I also got the Fly HM from Galactic HQ. Now I can fly instead of biking :D

The beach between Valor and Pastoria had tons of Pearls btw. o.o (Only 3, actually, but still...)

Anyway. Now that I'm in Pastoria for the second time, I'm challenging Wake, I mean, Crasher Wake. My team got leveled up to 40 after all the gym trainers, and seeing that they were close to getting up another level, I went out and Vs. Seeker'd some of the trainers in Route 214, gaining one more level. At L41, now I'm challenging Wake.

I mean, Crasher Wake.

... Some timeskip later on...

After Wake, I went on west through the raining route and marsh, and got a Dawn Stone and a few other items in the mud. Reached Mr. Backlot's mansion with the rich kids and socialites, money fodder yum. Took the Clefairy challenge and eventually battled the Rich Kid with Blissey. Shame I don't have anyone with Thief, or I would've gotten a Rare Candy XD

Anyway, after that, I continued my journey to Solaceon and cured the Psyducks of their chronic headaches, lol. Some Ninja Boys and Ace Trainers later, I arrived at Celestic. Met Cyrus, bla bla bla, got Surf. Now I can go to Canalave and finally get rid of Cut on Pingu... About time, too. Serves me right for being too lazy to catch a Bidoof earlier on >_>

Ah well. Next I'm back in Solaceon and covered whatever was left to the west of it. Now to go through all Sinnoh again to reach Surf-able areas. Treasure hunting, yay. Byron can wait.

After receiving my first gym, I went back to Jubilife, and found Prof. Rowan and Dawn talking to two guys with ridiculously funny outfits. Then Dawn and I had a double battle with them Galactic Grunts, and my Prinplup and her Chimchar really pwned! My Prinplup leveled up to level 18 too! They ran away, and Dawn and Prof. Rowan left too. Then this fatty went next to me and gave me a Fashion case! We kept going and fought some trainers. We caught a Bidoof just for Rock Smash. I got to floaroma town, and am currently resting

arceus03
19th June 2012, 7:59 PM
I went through Sinnoh and accessed all the previous places that could only be reached via Surf. Got lots of neat items, Rare Candies, TMs and such. I also ventured through Routes 219 - 221 and reached the Pal Park place. Then I went to Floaroma and surfed up to the meadow and got a bunch of Honey and other stuff. After that, I went inside Fuego Ironworks and got the Flamethrower TM apart from Sun Stones and shards.

Then I continued on to Canalave. Lovely music btw <3
Fought Barry, who just got his 6th Badge despite his Pokemon's underleveledness. Eh. Mine trumped him by like 10 levels >_>
After that I went to Iron Islands and helped Riley take care of the Galactic Grunts, and got a Riolu egg. Not that I plan on raising Lucario though.

Next up, Byron's gym~

I spent more time trying to complete my Platinum's Pokedex. I've been working really hard to evolve many of the Pokemon that have been rotting in the PC for ages, so I've been battling many trainers. Also, I did some trading with my HeartGold and Pal Parking from Emerald in order to obtain certain Pokes. As of now, I only have ~20 Pokemon left to go before my dex is complete and I've seen 488 Pokemon. The Kanto and Johto portions of my dex are 100% complete, so I only have the Hoenn and Sinnoh parts left.

^I must ask, are you playing Platinum or Diamond/Pearl?

Platinum.

Quite a lot happened since last time. I got the 6th Badge, and was assigned to investigate Lake Valor. Well, apart from the huge amount of Magikarp flopping around, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the lake, so I left again after talking to the weird man inside the cave and headed to Lake Verity. I met another weird red haired woman and helped Dawn trashed her. After that I continued my journey for the 7th Badge.

... Route 216, snow! Oh joy. Constant hailing and slow walking is just the way to enjoy the scenery ^^ Some trainers and lots of items later, I reached Acuity Lakefront where I met Barry... on top of a cliff. Oh well. Then I went and got the 7th Badge from Candice, and met Maylene in the Pokemon Center. After that I went to Acuity Lakefront again to find Barry getting trashed by Jupiter... Okay.

Next up, with Rock Climb available, I went to do some more treasure hunting around Sinnoh, before going to the Galactic HQ in Veilstone. Lots of Grunts and tons of Stunky later, I found myself facing Cyrus and the weird man from Lake Valor, both of whom I defeated quite easily. Then I released the three Lake Guardians. Now off to Mt. Coronet.

After some cave exploring, rock climbing and even more Grunts than at the HQ, I reached Mars and Jupiter. Aaaaaaand here comes Barry. Ah well. I put up Empoleon, and he basically swept the whole battle... sort of. First turn with the Bronzors and Munchlax, two Surf KOd all three of them. Purugly, Skuntank and Rapidash came out next. I tried to let Rapidash do some of the work by "stalling" with Flash Cannon but he's too pathetic (his Fire Blast didn't even make Skuntank go to yellow HP I believe) so another Surf ended the turn. Final match, the twin Golbats. Ice Beam took care of the first one; Barry's Heracross Night Slashed the other one but... well, I guess you could say it's because Reflect was up. So in the end Pingu practically fought the battle himself >_>

Some scenes later on, I'm inside the Distortion World.

Perfect timing to realize I haven't stocked up on balls yet. I got like 17 Ultra Balls from all around Sinnoh, hidden and whatnot, but few other balls. So I went out again and flew to Pastoria to get a whole bunch of Dusk Balls (3.5x > 2x) before going back to the Distortion World. After walking through it, defying physics and whatnot, I reached Cyrus and Giratina. Fought Cyrus (sort of) and saved, before engaging Giratina.

First try. I sent out Gliscor, Rock Slide it to red HP then switched to Empoleon. Pingu stalled while I keep chucking Dusk Balls, occasionally healing if the Giratina goes off screen. Twice I got like three ball shakes before Giratina broke free >_>

It ended up that the battle was too long until Giratina used Stuggle, and it died. Oh well.
Second try was much easier. I sent out Pingu, gave it some battle items (X Defend and X Sp. Def. Which I would never have used otherwise in other battles XD) and Ice Beamed and Grass Knotted Gira. 5 Dusk Balls later, I caught Gira, which was much quicker than the last attempt o.o

I can't wait to get out already. Mesprit, wait for me. I'm coming to get you :3

Started plugging back away at Platinum while watching shows with the family yesterday - currently on a challenge where I can only use 3 Pokémon for battling in the entire game (except before they become available), and I've chosen Roserade, Drifblim and Mamoswine for this purpose.

Last night I covered the entire area between Hearthome and Veilstone, including all trainers, the items in the Unown Ruins, and the Lost Tower, in just under an hour. I'm now sitting in the Vielstone Pokémon Center, ready to hit the town for the major items available and face the gym later this evening. Lotus was a bit behind in levels after Jeanne took out almost all of Hearthome Gym by herself, but she's just about caught up in time for Jeanne to sweep the Veilstone Gym and leave her behind again. Still considering hitting up Lost Cave to see Mira (because I like covering all story-based sidequests), but will probably pass until Fly is available.

CURRENT TEAM:
Lotus (Roselia, F, lv.34)
Jeanne (Drifblim, F, lv.35)

Alright. I've got Giratina, and now I'm out of Distortion World. I don't care if Cyrus wants to live there for all his life, I'm certainly not going to keep him company. Maybe he'd be less lonely if, you know, he brought along his Commanders and have a game of Go Fish or something.

Now for Mesprit. I saved in front of him in Lake Verity, and let the chase begin! So far, 5 attempts. Gentle, Impish, Jolly, Hasty, Serious. No acceptable nature yet, since I'm looking for a Calm or Modest. At least, Bold or maybe Timid. I just read somewhere that Synchronize does not work for roaming legendaries, which, well, sucks. >_> Good thing I haven't started breeding Ralts for a Calm Synchronizer. Ah well.

More resets.

6th attempt, I got a Calm Mesprit. Hwee. ^^ It got crap Def IV, but who cares anyway :P At least the nature is fine. Now to catch the other two lake guardians, before going off to Sunyshore.

Uxie doesn't want to get inside the ball =( 35 Dusk Balls later, I had to reset. lol. Next try was much... easier. I sent out Pingu and used an item. One Dusk Ball later, I got the yellow critter. o.o

Azelf was more or less the same. Since I had Uxie, I stalled with him using Yawn and Amnesia, all the while chucking Dusk Balls. I think I used something like 15 balls on him.

Anywayyyyy. Now I've got a complete team. The three I had from earlier were around ~56, so right now I'd be placing Mesprit in all of the battles until I reach Sunyshore. Finally, onwards with the story.

I just noticed though that Thunder Wave TM can only be gotten at the BF... >_> I'll have to find another move for Mesprit then, since I'm certainly not going that far just to get 32 BP. Maybe some other move. Unfortunately, most of the better moves he can learn come after the E4.... Energy Ball, Calm Mind, Signal Beam.

>_>
<_<
>_>

Maybe Toxic, lol. I'll see. I don't really want to waste the Ice Beam TM on him, since Pingu is already having that.

I spent about 4 straight hours obtaining the remaining Pokemon I needed to get in order to complete my Platinum Pokedex. First, I did some more trading with HeartGold to get some of the Pokemon I was missing. Then, I spent a long time level grinding some Pokemon in order to evolve them. Eventually, I evolved the last Pokemon (Burmy into Mothim), and now have a 100% complete National Dex of all 493 Pokemon in this gen! I then went to the Valor Lakefront and got the diploma. Also, I now have a black Trainer Card with 5 stars. ^_^

This is the first time I've ever completed the National Dex...now I guess I'll have to work on completing it in other games!

I will be doing a Rotation/Nuzlocke, with TONS of Pokemon!! xD But a rule is I can only capture the first Pokemon in each route.

Just picked Chimchar, went through the beginning ritual, so boring! Finally, I started my journey, and immediately caught a Bidoof and Starly. They will all be in my rotation team :D I got Bidoof in the first street and Starly in the one after Sandgem. Finally arrived in Jubilife City. No deaths yet! I went directly to route 204 and captured myself a Budew. I battled the kids in the Pokemon School. Then I got the Poketch. I trained all my Pokemon to level 12.

I reached Sunyshore. I looked around and decided to stick some seals on the Pokeballs, just because. After going to the gym for a bit and finishing all the trainers, I saved. I went out again to train though. I'm planning to get my team to L57 before challenging Volkner. So far, Mesprit and Empoleon are already at L57, while Heracross and Gliscor needs one more level. And there's this fisherman with two Gyarados who gives lots of Exp. Points, so I'm going to abuse the Vs. Seeker and keep on grinding. Ooooor maybe I'll just go kill wild Floatzels.

Anyway. I finished training and challenged Volkner. After that, I talked to Jasmine to get Waterfall. Final time around, I went to the rest of Sinnoh which I couldn't previously and got a few neat items. Stone Plate, Meadow Plate, Adamant and Lustrous Orbs and Dragon Claw TM. Then I bought a bunch of Super Repels and went on Route 223 to reach Victory Road.

Of note, there's one trainer in the road with a Mamoswine. I had Gliscor in front, so I figured I'd just keep on battling. First turn, Fire Fang sent Mamo into yellow HP, but his Blizzard hit and nearly KOd Gliscor. I got left with 7 HP. Whew. And Frozen. >_>

So I used a Full Restore. I figured I'd get another hit after this, but Mamo's Ice Fang froze Gliscor again. <_<

Ah well. I switched to Empoleon, who got hit by Ice Fang and... froze. >_>

Really, three times in a row? That's just plain lucky.
... Though I do remember my Gliscor's Fire Fang once inflicted Burn and also made the enemy flinch in the same turn, so I can't complain :P

Some trainers and tons of experiences later on (Vs. Seeker doesn't work indoors. Shame), I got out of Victory Road and headed up to the Pokemon League. Barry came one last time to be trashed... Ah well. Might as well entertain him, ne? Most of his Pokemon got one shot except for Rapidash (it actually got one shot too, just that he's faster than Empoleon so he managed to land a Fire Blast (and a Burn >_>)) and Snorlax (cause I took a turn to Swords Dance with Gliscor). Anyway. Now that he's out of the way, I could go and challenge the E4. I think I might train a little bit more though. My current team are at L59. I might raise them all to L60 then feed them with drugs Rare Candies I've been saving so far.

Luckily, Vs. Seeker works on the sea. :3

Good thing Cynthia's Garchomp in Platinum is at L62 as opposed to, what, L66 in DP?

So, some training and drugs Rare Candies later, I got my team to L62. I still have 7 remaining... I'll save those for post-E4.

Alright, on with the E4. Tomorrow. Maybe. lol.

Restarted Platinum and went with Chimchar this time since I usually choose Turtwig.

I went through the whole first scene thing and afterwards trained my Chimchar to level 10 before arriving in Sandgem Town. Got the Return TM, told mom to pack me lunch cause I was leaving, and watched Dawn catch a Bidoof. I decided I wasnt going to use them “standard team” (Starter, Luxray, Staraptor, Floatzel, another poke, HM Slave), so the first pokemon I decided to catch was Abra. I had to catch a few until I got the right nature, but luckily Chimchar had Taunt.

After that, I battled the trainers with my Chimchar evolving into Monferno and learning Mach Punch (Yes!). I then proceeded to make my way to the first gym. But instead my Rival was in front of the gym. After smacking him around a little, he told me to check out the tunnel. I found him in there goofing off, but he went back to the Gym after I confronted him. Battled the trainers and before exiting, I caught a Zubat and Onix. I then made my way into the gym. Beat the first two trainers easily with Monferno and then it was time for Roarak.

Beat Geodude and Onix with Monferno easily. I sent out Onix against Cranidos but I forgot it knew Pursuit. Got in 2 Screeches before Onix fainted, but Monferno took it out with one Mach Punch.

Made my way back to Jubilife City, teamed up with Dawn and beat the Galactic Grunts, and made it to Floroma Town. The liitle girl told me Team Galactic was holding her papi hostage, so I went to the rescue. I caught a Pachirisu in the Valley Windworks and got the key to get inside. I beat the grunts and fought the Commander. Used Onix to Screech, Pachirisu to Charm, and Monferno to win it.

After that, I battled the trainers on my way to Eterna Forest. Once I made it, some girl asked me to help her make it through. I wondered why she needed my help, but after seeing that all she had was a chansey I knew why. I battled all the trainers, but decided to stay with her to train my pokemon.

Team:

Monferno lv.23
Pachirisu lv.17
Abra lv.12
Onix lv. 13
Zubat lv.13

I finished the game. OR well, at least 95% of it. I defeated the Elite 4 and accessed the extra part in the Victory Road. After that, I continued on to the Battle Area, cleared Stark Mountain sidequest and got a villa. Then I caught the rest of the legendaries, Dialga and Palkia. I also released the three birds and Cresselia, so now they are roaming somewhere in Sinnoh... not that I plan to catch them anyway. I also bought a whole bunch of furniture for the villa. Now I've been challenging the gymleaders and partners in the Top Trainer Cafe. My Pokemon are now at ~L72. I might continue doing so until I reach L78 to challenge the E4 again, or I might just leave it there.

I still have a ton of Rare Candies as well. I might just feed my team for the last time and challenge the E4 again. Idk. Or I might start Heart Gold. :P

Starting a new Platinum game with TheSirPeras. I did everything to start off the game and then went to choose Piplup as my starter. Once I beat my rival I headed to Sandgem Town and met with Professor Rowan so he could give me the Pokedex. Then I was back home getting the Running Shoes before truly beginning my journey. After Dawn showed me how to catch Pokemon on Route 202 I continued through the route battling the youngsters and such until I reached Jubilife City.

Doing a Platinum playthrough with Drummerdude!! I did the whole beginning stuff, chose Turtwig, called it Leafwiggy, and defeated the rival, who I called Drummer xD Trained Leafwiggy until level 10, and then went to Sandgem Town, where I saw Dawn and received the Pokedex. Meanwhile I also got the running shoes and the parcel to give to Drummer from his mom. I continued my trip and Dawn taught me how to catch Pokemon. I got to Jubilife City and Dawn told me that Drummer was at the Pokemon School. Before meeting him, we trained Leafwiggy to level 12, and then went in the School. We battled those two kids and then gave Drummer the Parcel. He left and so did we. Oh meanwhile we also met this policeman called Looker. Then we met the creator of the Poketch. He told us to meet 3 clowns and we did, and then received the the Poketch. Then we finally continued our trip through route 203. We saw Drummer there training and he challenged us to a battle. He had a Chimchar and a Starly, but Leafwiggy handled them both. We then battled everyone in route 203, and managed to get Leafwiggy to level 15. We stopped before the cave, and are now resting.

So I finished up my training in Eterna Forest (more like I got lazy because it was taking to long :p). So I made my way out and arrived in Eterna City. My rival took me to the statue, but when we got there some dude with blue hair was there. He talked some nonsense and then left, as did my rival. I continued east to fight the trainers and train my pokemon a little more before my second gym battle. At the end of the training session, Zubat evolved in Golbat and Abra into Kadabra.

On the way to the pokecenter, some woman with blonde hair recognized my Pokedex and gave me the Cut HM. I healed my pokemon and went to the gym.

The gym leader was outside and told me that she had just faced my rival (darn his quickness) and invited me to battle her. I made my way inside the gym, beating the trainers to complete the little puzzle. I was finally at Gardenia.

Monferno vs Turtwig
Pretty easy battle. One flame wheel took it down.

Monferno vs Cherrim
I was hoping to OHKO with flame wheel but it didnt happen. After one flame wheel, Cherrim's health was in the red. It then used Magical Leaf. I used Flame Wheel, but Gardenia used a super potion. One mach punch later and it was down.

Golbat vs Roserade
Decided to use my new Golbat against her Roserade. I started with Confuse Ray and Roserade hit itself in confusion. I then used Wing Attack which took it down. I got the badge. I saved right after the battle.

My team:

Monferno lv. 25
Pachirisu lv.20
Golbat lv.22
Kadabra lv.20
Onix lv.17

I've started Diamond a few days ago, but since I'm still in the beginning fase (just reached Jubilife) I might as well post this.

At the lake, I got attacked by Starly. Chimchar trashed 'm.
Then bla bla bla and oh well, so that's how you catch a Pokémon. I decided to get a Shinx. Got two, kept the one with the Mild nature.
Right now, I just took my first steps in Jubilife, and I'll now go to the trainer school to deliver the parcel.

So a couple of weeks ago I restarted my Pearl game, and decided to try a Nuzlocke Challenge on it. I'm using the standard rules of the Nuzlocke challenge, meaning all Pokemon have to be nicknamed, I can only try to catch the first Pokemon I see in an area, and fainting = dead. Because this is my first Nuzlocke challenge, I'm relaxing the rules a little bit, meaning I'm keeping the battle mode on Shift and am allowed to keep the freebie Pokemon and catch one-of-a-kind Pokemon (Drifloon and the legendaries). Well anyway, now for my progress on that game...

Well, I progressed sort of far. I now have two badges, and have not really made much progress in training for the third gym. Lately I've been growing lots of berries, but a couple of days ago I stopped having the time to water them, so now I'm just trying to pick them and not grow them anymore. I've also been going underground a lot lately to find a Thunderstone to evolve my Pikachu with. Finding that Pikachu was rather funny--I literally walked into the Trophy Garden praying that the first Pokemon I saw would be a Pikachu. And it was! Hooray!

And I'm still not done exploring the large number of new areas that open up after getting the second badge. Recently I made the trek across the rainy Route 215. The first Pokemon I saw there was a Geodude--not really what I wanted, but I decided to catch her anyway, naming her Dynamite. But then there was some bad news. At the very end of Route 215, I got into a battle with two Ace Trainers. Two of my Pokemon died in that battle. First my Gastly died after Sucker Punching their Kadabra, who only had a sliver of HP left afterwards and went in with Confusion for the kill. Then my Geodude sacrificed herself to defeat their Gyarados, weaking it with a few Rock Throws while it Thrashed away. Then my Staravia took a cheap shot at it with Quick Attack and it was defeated. It was the first time I lost more than one of my Pokemon to a trainer battle, but fortunately both of the Pokemon were replaceable. I already had an extra Gastly I had caught in the Lost Tower, and I had just caught a new Geodude. So it wasn't as tragic as some of my earlier losses.

And as Friday came a couple of days ago, I decided to head out to Valley Windworks that night and catch a Drifloon with a Dusk Ball. I named it (I forgot which gender it was) Dreamwave, after this little story I wrote once about balloons flying over a city at night and wishing good dreams upon all the people sleeping there. I think Dreamwave will be very helpful against Maylene.

I also recently headed to Pastoria City. The first Pokemon I saw on Route 212 was a Bibarel that was proving difficult to weaken, so I decided not to catch it (I already had a Bibarel anyway). Once there, I used the Heart Scales I had collected underground to teach some attacks to some of my Pokemon. For example, I taught Defense Curl to Dynamite (to strengthen her Rollout) and Thrash to my Gyarados. I didn't feel like going into the Great Marsh, but I did go out onto Route 213 to see what I could catch. I went in there hoping to find a Buizel to replace my dead one, but what I found instead was even better: a Floatzel! Because I had a Net Ball on hand, he wasn't too hard to catch. Since my dead Buizel was named Mikau, I decided to name the new Floatzel Mikau II. XD Route 214 (and whatever that cave is off of it), the Solaceon Ruins, Lake Valor, and the Valor Lakefront remain unexplored so far, so I plan on exploring those next to see what I can catch. Probably not the Solaceon Ruins though, since all that's there are Unown.

Alive
Kaiser (Prinplup, male) --My starter
Sterling (Staravia, female) --The first Pokemon I captured, on Route 201.
Hawkeye (Starly, male) --He's only at level 10 and is my backup in case Sterling dies.
Biff (Bibarel, male) --One of what I call the "Three Waterboys", the other two being Kaiser and Mikau.
Maurice (Roselia, male) --Caught on Route 204 as a Budew.
Alice (Crobat, female) --It took a lot of work to raise her from a Zubat, but it was worth it.
Dynamite (Geodude, female) --Recently caught on Route 215. I hope she doesn't become my fourth dead Geodude.
Dreamwave (Drifloon, forgot gender) --I waited until night to catch it so I could use a Dusk Ball.
Thumper (Lopunny, male) --He used to own a bunch of Pokemon with Frustration as a Buneary.
Princess (Gyarados, female) --After I got the Old Rod, I immediately used it on Route 218 and caught her as a Magikarp.
Bad Horse (Ponyta, male) --(sings) Bad horse, bad horse, bad horse, he's bad! XD
Eve (Kricketune, female) --I haven't used her in battle yet because her attacks suck, but hopefully that will change.
Cheeks (Pikachu, female) --She's all ready to evolve to Raichu, but I can't find a Thunderstone.
Nursey (Blissey) --Hatched from the freebie egg in Hearthome City.
Shadowfax (Ponyta, male) --My backup in case Bad Horse dies.
Boogeyman (Gastly, male) --Caught in the Lost Tower. Replaced Spookster after his untimely death.
Mikau II (Floatzel, male) --I'm hoping he'll emulate the dead Mikau as well as Link did in Majora's Mask.

Dead: (these are kept in a box labeled "Casualty")
Rockette (Geodude, female) --My first casualty. A Pachirisu owned by a hiker killed her with Bide.
Haruka (Cherubi, female) --A fisherman's Goldeen killed her with a critical-hit Horn Attack.
Mikau (Buizel, male) --Killed by a critical-hit Confusion from a wild Meditite.
Pebbles (Geodude, female) --Killed by Commander Jupiter's Skuntank after her first two Magnitudes barely failed to defeat it.
Paula (Psyduck, female) --I forgot exactly how she died, but I think a trainer with a critical hit was involved.
Spookster (Gastly, male) --He was one level away from evolving when an Ace Trainer's Kadabra killed him after surviving his Sucker Punch.
Grenada (Geodude, female) --My third Geodude fought valiantly against an Ace Trainer's Gyarados in a double battle with the above, but died.

I explored Jubilife for a little while after giving my rival his Parcel and when I was done with that I headed east and battled him with only Piplup and had an easy victory in spite of the fact that his Turtwig got two critical hits back to back. I continued heading towards Oreburgh and battled everyone on Route 3 and in the Oreburgh Gate until I made it to the small city. My rival was waiting outside of the gym and informed me that Roark was in the mines, so I went there. Inside the mines Piplup evolved into one of my least favorite Pokemon, Prinplup. I found Roark and left the mines with him and went to the gym. Prinplup destroyed the trainers and then we challenged Roark. Geodude and Onix both fainted with one Bubble while Cranidos took a few more because he kept healing. I got the Coal Badge and Stealth Rock and then returned to Jubilife.

Looker stopped me as soon as entered the city and informed me that there was no suspicious activity in Jubilife but I guess he wasn't aware that Professor Rowan was being harassed by Team Galactic a few feet away. Dawn and I took care of them though and I headed north and skipped every trainer on my way to Floroma Town. I went west from there and battled a grunt outside of the Windworks and then beat the 2 grunts in the meadow. A man gave me some Honey for defeating them so I slathered it on the two available trees. Now I wait until my desired Pokemon appears.

Well, I'll skip the bits up to Oreburgh Gate for now, everyone knows what happens. My character is called White, because Dawn = overused Platinum girl name.

So, having my Piplup called Aquill, I skipped the trainers up to Oreburgh City, and ran straight out of the other end of the city to catch my next member: Machop. Funnily enough, my Piplup was Timid natured, and Machop got a Jolly nature! Funny stuff. I started training them both up on the Onix that dwelled in Oreburgh Cave. I found Roarke, who I battled in the gym and easily beat. Low Kick destroyed Onix XD

I headed through Jubilife and beat the grunts, and caught a Bidoof as a temporary HM Slave for Rock Smash and maybe Strength. I battled the trainers on Route 204, and found my next pokemon, Budew. Awesomely, it got a Modest nature! Three good natures in a row, would you believe it? And, thanks to my trip to Birmingham today, I got more playing time.

I found the grunts and beat them all, evolving my Piplup in the process and leveling my Budew up quite easily, and Mars was no trouble. After exiting, I ran straight to Route 205 to get Shellos, who I called Neslug (guess the reference?). It took some time to grind Neslug up, but we got there in the end. Well, we got in Eterna Forest, I mean. Also, it has a Hardy nature. Damn.

Cheryl was quite the bonus to have around, as she did freebie healing XD. Thankfully, Cheryl wasn't the Cheryl many know in the celebrity world (thank god!), just someone called Cheryl. But my trip through the forest brought me a new member in Gastly, who got a Careful nature. Damn (again). She thanked us, and left. I soon left for Eterna, and arrived to find Barry. I skipped the shizz with him, before saving on Route 211.

I went through the cave before Oreburgh and defeated the trainers there and received Rock Smash. I left the cave with Leafwiggy at level 16. When I entered the city this kid took me to the gym, which was being blocked by Drummer, our rival! He told us Roark was at the mines, and we went there. We grabbed all items and defeated all trainers there. Eventually we found Roark, and he showed us the HM Rock Smash in action!! He then left to the gym. Leafwiggy really pwned all the Pokemon there and got to level 17. On our way to Roark in the gym, Turtwig leveled up once again, and evolved into Grotle! We then proceeded to defeat Roark. Geodude and Onix were OHKO with Razor Leaf. Cranidos was surprisingly a OHKO too. Grotle leveled up once again to level 19. As we were leaving, Drummer came and told us the next badge is in Eterna City. We arrived in Jubilife City and Looker appeared and left. We went to the Poketch place and received the new app, Memo Pad. As we were leaving, we saw these two weirdos talking to Prof. Rowan and Dawn. They were trying to steal from Prof. Rowan, but Dawn and me helped defeat them. Grotle and Piplup took them down quickly. On our way to Eterna City we fought some trainers and got Grotle to level 20. We stopped at a small city called Floaroma and received the Squirtbottle. We continued but this little girl asked us for help and for us to go save her daddy. We said yes and she told us he was at the Valley Windwork. There we met a Pokemon eager to help us, a Shellos. Grotle and the female Shellos befriended and Shellos started helping us and eventually following us, which led to us capturing her. We called her Flirt, since it seemed like she was flirting with Grotle xD We trained her to level 16 and then easily defeated Team Galactic. We also got honey and and are also waiting for a Pokemon to appear!!

Wow, you just started and you're further along then I am snivy trainer. Although I am really excited we have someone to complete the starter set!!! Are you doing it on Platinum?

Anywho, the first Honey tree I checked had a Wurmple which I didn't care for but the second had just what I was looking for...a Combee! I had to reset a few times until I caught a female Combee but it paid off because it has an Impish nature. With Combee in the lead I went to the Windworks and took out the two Galactic grunts before challenging Mars. Combee went out against Zubat but I switched to Prinplup and knocked it out with Bubblebeam. Combee was back out against Purugly and then switched to a random Bidoof which I am using for Rock Smash. The Bidoof fainted so I sent out Prinplup and continuously used Bubblebeam until it fainted.

Once Team Galactic fled from the Windworks I headed north towards the forest. There were a lot of trainers along the way but Combee showed that it can handle its own (I know Prinplup can because it 10 levels higher than the other Pokemon here). I beat the last trainer, healed at a nice woman's house, and took a break.

After leaving the Eterna City gym after getting the badge, I went to find out what was in that mysterious building to the north. I went in and it turns out, it was a Team Galactic hideout. Looker was there undercover. So I went up many flights of stairs making sure that I beat all Galactic members along the way. I made it to the end where one of the other commanders, Jupiter, was holding 2 pokemon hostage. I then battled her:

Monferno vs Zubat:
I used flame wheel, which put it in red health. I was hoping it wouldnt use Supersonic and instead it used Bite. One Scratch later and it was down.

Pachirisu & Onix vs Skunktank:
I started off with Pachirisu, who actually did pretty well. After a few Charms and Sparks, Skunktank was in yellow health, as was I. But a critical hit Night Slash/Poison Jab took out Pachirisu. I sent out Onix and one Screech/Rock Throw later it was down.

I exited the building and got the Explorer Kit. On the way to get a bike, the blonde haired girl from before stopped me and gave me a pokemon egg. I got my bike and battled all the trainers on Cycling Road. Afterwards, I beat the trainers right above Oreburgh City and Dawn gave me the VS Seeker and the Dowsing App for my Poketch. Since I got the VS Seeker, I decided to stay and train.

Since the last time I posted I did some things, not that much though. I'm behind everyone else here...
Anyway. I reached Jubilife, delivered the parcel, beat the two trainers in the trainers school, got TM10.
Then when I wanted to go to Orebrough I was stopped by some freak who wanted me to find some clowns. Yes. Yes. Yes and I got myself a Poketch.
Then I rushed to Orebourgh, beating all the trainers I could find. After I'd done that, I trained my Chimchar and Shinx to lvl 19, since that gave them some useful moves (Flame Wheel and Spark respectively).
Beat Roark today. Fun enough, Cranidos was down in one hit, whereas Geodude and Onix both survived one Mach Punch.
Then I went back to Jubilife. Got the fashion case after a boring battle (I suppose I was overleveled, with a lvl 19 Luxio and lvl 20 Monferno). Wanted to go to Floarma, but realised that I had nobody to teach Rock Smash to. Tried to catch Bidoof, but I OHKO'd them all. Settled for a Geodude instead and then went to Floarma.
And that's where I am now, I just cleared the Valley Windworks.

Yeah, I wasn't aware I was training to level 10 before Sandgem town. Oops. But Monferno's great (I don't NEED Bronzor, but my next member isn't for ages, and Monferno was level 25...). I'm glad I'm using Bronzor though. It'll help against Fantina.

Gardenia was a right pain to beat.

Anyways, I recently continued on through my Platinum. I decided to take on Gardenia, but I had a slight amount of trouble. In the end, I won anyway. I wanted Budew to evolve badly because it is quite weak, so I got it to LV23, 3 levels higher than the rest. I headed down and easily beat the trainers on Cycling Road, before heading through Mt Coronet and finding Cyrus. He's strange but has cool blue hair ¬.¬

I can't be bothered with putting sprites in, but hey.

28th June 2012, 8:24 PM
So, continued today (since I decided to let all the other catch up on the (R/S/)Emerald playthrough.
Beat Gardenia with just Monferno. I believe that I one-shotted all the opponents pokemon. I cleared team Galactic from Eterna, also with mainly Monferno, since he had to catch up a bit.
Went down the Cycling Road and did the Wayward cave subquest (where you have to lead the little girl out of the cave).
Made only a short stop in Hearthome, but apparently long enough for my friend to challenge me to a battle. He disappointed me, only having evolved his starter and possibly a Budew.
So I trashed him and made clear that he should put more effort in his relationship with his Pokémon. He looked as if he understood, but we'll have to see.
I also met my mum, and she gave me a Tuxedo. Too bad I cannot actually wear this on route. It would be awesome, especially when trashing team Galactic.
But anyway. Luxio got to lvl 30 and evolved. Surprised me, since I though evolution came at lvl 32.
Then I cleared the way to Veilstone, but I'm not entering the town yet. First some training, to get some decent levels going.

Well in Eterna City, we went to the Underground Man's house and he gave us the explorer Kit. We'll get back to that later. Anyways, as we were heading northeast we found Drummer, our rival. He talked to us about the statue and took us there, but Cyrus was there. He was saying some really weird shizz. He then left, and eventually Drummer did too. Meanwhile we noticed the amount of ridiculous team galactic grunts. As we were heading back to the Pokemon Gym, this hot woman stopped us. We then realized it was the Pokemon Champion Cynthia. We introduced and she talked about the Pokedex. She then gave us Cut, which will definitely not be helpful. We went to the gym and saw another hot woman there. It was Gardenia, the gym leader. She said her last opponent was this speedy young man called Drummer. Seems like Drummer did well. We entered the gym, and the battles begun!! I got to Gardenia, and Aipom defeated Turtwig, then unfortunately Cherrim defeated Shellos, but got defeated by Grotle. Aipom lost against Roseradde but Grotle did the work. Hard battle though. I then healed and saved.

As I was training my Luxray in the Lost Tower (I wanted it to have slightly higher Special Attack) I encountered a Murkrow. Thought about it for a second, and I was like, Wynaut? I still needed a Psychic and Ground resist after all. Not to mention a Fly user. So I caught the Murkrow, luckily it had both an Adamant nature and Super Luck, that was Super Luck(y).
And I continued training, Ponyta and Vs. Seeker FTW.
Finally, when all teammembers reached lvl 40, I cycled to Veilstone, and there I walked to the Pokémon Center, where I healed my Pokémon and saved.

I entered the Eterna Forest and met Cheryl who decided she wanted to go through the forest with me (who wouldn't?). For the first time ever I didn't spend a lot of time training in here as I figured my two Pokemon are already a little overleveled. After the first battle with trainers Combee evolved into Vespiquen! I was out of the forest in record time and after beating up some fishermen I arrived in Eterna City! I went east and beat a few trainers before going to the gym. Vespiquen swept the gym trainers with Bug Bite and Gust so I decided to battle Gardenia. Vespiquen went out against her Turtwig and beat it with Gust. Cherrim also fell to Gust. Her final Pokemon, Roserade, was defeated by two Bug Bites. I got my badge and then healed at the Pokemon Center before taking a break.

Ooh nice Drummerdude! Still one step ahead of you though!

I beat Gardenia too (after cursing Cherubis and Leech Seed) thanks to Bronzor learning Extrasensory prior to the battle. Turtwig went down to 3 Extrasensorys, Cherrim went down to Monferno's Flame Wheel (Leech Seed :( ) and then Bronzor beat Roserade with Extrasensory. Jupiter wasn't much more difficult. I taught Bronzor Rock Tomb for the battle (to hit Stunky and Stuntank). We trained on Cycling Road, where we saved nearby on the path.

Damn I'm falling behind now XD As I was looking for a Cut HM slave and caught a budew. I entered Team Galactic's hideout and we met Looker there again. He was dressed as a Team Galactic grunt. The battle against Juniper was really hard, but in the end Grotle came through! Man, Grotle has given me many wins haha. And honestly, where's Looker?! I mean, shouldn't he be able to listen to kidnapped Pokemon and a man trying to get them back, AND me battling them!? What a crap policeman he is! Anyways, we left and Cynthia appeared and gave us a Pokemon egg. Big surprise, Cynthia appears only when everything is done -_- I then got the the bike and also got the Exp. Share and put it on Shellos, who is falling behind. I stopped after the bridge.

With my new badge I headed back to the Eterna Forest and entered the Old Chateau and explored it looking for items. Once I was done I went into Team Galactic's Eterna Building and started beating grunts as I slowly made my way to the top floor to take on Jupiter. Prinplup beat her Zubat with Bubblebeam and then Vespiquen defeated Skuntank with a few Power Gem's. For getting Team Galactic out of town and saving some Pokemon I was rewarded a bicycle and an Egg for my troubles. I headed down the "Cycling Path" and headed into the grass underneath the bridge and captured my third team member, a Gligar. I went and got Earthquake from the secret entrance to the Wayward Cave and taught it to Gligar. Now that Gligar can take care of itself I used it against the trainers on the "Cycling Path" before taking a break.

Hmm, what have I done since the last time? Oh right, I left off in Veilstone last time. There, I had Murkrow own the whole gym, getting all OHKO, besides for one Meditite, who used Detect the first turn. Murkrow also almost single handily beat Maylene, only receiving help from Infernape with Lucario.
Then I cleared the route between Veilstone - Pastoria and Pastoria - Hearthome. Used it as some training, since I kinda wanted to get my Pokémon to lvl 45 before challenging the gym. But in the end, I decided not to do so, and I just entered the gym with the levels they had at the time, 42/43ish. Luxray powned the gym, though I do believe that I had Infernape take out Quagsire, since it's part ground.
Then I talked to some Galactic Grunt, since I wanted to know why he was dressed in such an awful way. But he ran like crazy, I guess he wasn't that confident. As I ran after him, I met my rival who challenged me. Though it was not much of a challenge, merely some training. So I kept following the grunt, and when we arrived at the lake, Cynthia appeared, asking me to cure the Psyduck at route 210. So I did, and then, she suddenly was there as well, giving me an Old Charm to deliver to the elder of Celestic town. So I did, and I received HM03 there, Surf. And it was at that point that I realised that I could already have gotten another of my team members, so right now, I'm in the process of catching one with a cool nature. After that it's training time, to lvl 50 with all of them... It's gonna take a while, but it'll be worth it.

In Jubilife City, we got the Poffin Case and went to make some Poffins. We made 5. We gave some to Aipom since he helped us cook. We went into the contests place and found our mom who gave us the Tuxedo. We also met the gym leader Fantina! We went into a contest with Aipom. On the visual part, we got about 8 hearts!! They love us XD In the dance part, we rocked, we missed one step only! On the first move of the last round, we performed to Dexter with Swift! We rocked! On the second we were the last to perform, and were lucky that nobody else performed to Jordan! I finished with 6 hearts! Afterwards, we were third and performed to Keira! We were lucky again that nobody else performed to Keira XD Last but not least we performed to Dexter again with Astonish! Luckily again, noone performed to Dexter haha. Then, the duel between Buizel, Bidoof, Cherubi and Aipom was over. We got all points possible haha, and won! Congrats Aipom, you deserved it!
We rested, and team is the same as before!

Having recently defeated Roark, I decided to travel up to Floraroma (or however it's spelt) and put a stop to Team Plasma. Going up with only Tsunami (Prinplup) and Nuada (Zubat), I owned the waiting trainers with the (in my opinion) underlevelled bat, and proceeded up to the hayfever-hating town. I then proceeded out by the Valley Windworks and caught two new additions to my team: Taylowa the Buizel (my favourite party member) and Misao the Pachirisu (apparently awful, but I like her so far). It was about then that I discovered that Nuada was female, but decided to keep the nickname. Training Nuada, Taylowa and Misao (you may recognise this from Black Bird or my FireRed accounts) to level 11, I got the Windworks key after and entered it after 'owning' the grunt out front. Going inside, Taylowa and Nuada gained a level before I fought the commander person. I dealt with the Zubat with Misao (oddly, it didn't use Toxic, as I hear it has learnt), but it dealt a beating to the squirrel and forced me to switch to Tsunami so as not to lose EXP for the underlevelled squirrel. My overtraining paid off, and finally, with some difficulty, I defeated the commander. After, I trained each Pokemon to level 13, and quit.

I have been on the route after the Cycling Road for like almost 4 or so days trying to train all my pokes to lv. 30. I would have been done by now, but I caught a male Burmy from a honey slathered tree and am training it.

With my new Mothim on the team, I realized I had 6 pokemon already, but no water type. So I decided to deposit Kadabra since I didn't use him too much anyway. I should be making my way to Hearthome City by tomorrow, since Mothim has Hidden Power Rock so I can beat the cyclists' Starly and Staravia pretty easily.

My team:
Monferno lv. 30
Onix lv. 30
Pachirisu lv.30
Golbat lv. 30
Mothim lv.23

EDIT: Finally got everyone to lv. 30 and made my way to Hearthome City. Fought the trainers, and once I got into the city a Buneary ran into me. Its owner thanked me for stopping it and invited me to the Contest Hall. Once I got there my Mom was there and gave me a Tuxedo so I can look handsome if I participate in a Contest. Some woman in a purple dress with wild hair was in there, so I talked to her. Turns out she was the gym leader!

I had decided earlier I would "try" to solo the entire Gym with Golbat. I fought the first trainer and my Golbat grew one level and evolved into Crobat:D. I then easily sweeped the trainers and made it to Fantina.

Crobat vs Duskull:
One Bite OHKOed it.

Crobat vs Mismagious:
Bite sent it down to yellow health and luckly it flinched. Another Bite and it was down.

Crobat vs Haunter:
Once again, Bite OHKOed.

lol, I beat her without taking a single hit. I saved right after getting the badge.

My Team:
Monferno lv.31
Pachirisu lv. 30
Onix lv. 30
Mothim lv. 30
Crobat lv. 33

Gligar showed its strength by taking out most of the trainers between Oreburgh and Mt Coronet. Dawn approached me before I could enter the mountain and gave me some cool items and such. I only took a few steps inside the mountain before a strange man approached me and blabbered on and on and on....he finally left me alone and headed out of the mountain and skipped all the trainers I could and searched the grass for my fourth team member, Ralts. I captured one and beat the remaining trainers on this route before exploring Hearthome City. First I learned about Poffins and then I explored Amity Square with Prinplup. With that done I headed to the Contest Hall and met my mom there as well as Fantina, the gym leader. She told me to go to the gym, but I wasn't prepared for that so I headed back to the Wayward Cave and I began to make my way through the cave. There were tons of weak wild Pokemon which really helped Ralts out and Ralts evolved into Kirlia! I made my way to the end and met a little girl named Mira who asked me to help her get out of the cave.

After beating Fantina, I made my way to Salaceon Town. Fought all the trainers on the way, including my rival, and eventually made it. I got the Defog HM and taught it to my Mothim. I then explored the pokemon graveyard and fought all the trainers inside. At the end I got a couple items from two nice old ladies.

I proceeded on my journey, and went North of the town to make my way to Veilstone City. Upon battling the trainers, my Monferno evolved into Infernape. I then went East, where it started raining pretty hard. I caught my final member and much needed water type here: Marill. I arrived in Veilstone City.

I headed straight to the gym after healing my team, but Dawn was there. She started talking to me and then some dude with a mask came out of the gym. Turns out he is the Gym Leader of Pastoria City and his name is Crasher Wake. He told us how good Maylene was and left, as did Dawn. I then entered the gym. Mothim beat all the karate dudes inside the gym with some powerful gusts. Next was Maylene.

Mothim vs Meditite:
Gust was a OHKO.

Mothim vs Machoke:
One Gust sent it to a little less than half HP, but it used Rock Tomb. I only had 1 HP left, so I used a Hyper Potion. Machoke used Strength. I was hoping I was still the faster one, but Machoke was faster now and took me out with another Rock Tomb.

Crobat vs Machoke:
I sent out Crobat and won with Wing Attack.

Crobat vs Lucario:
One word. HAX! I used Confuse Ray and Lucario hit itself 3 times in a row. I used Bite and it flinched, then I used Air Cutter and got a Critical Hit. I got the badge.

After obtaining the badge, Dawn told me that some Galactic grunts stole her Pokedex. I decided to help her get it back. We...I mean “I” easily beat them with Pachirisu's Discharge. Dawn got her Pokedex back and Looker showed up to investigate. I followed him inside where he showed me a Fly HM just lying out the ground. I taught it to Crobat. After that, I went South to make my way to Pastoria City. I decided to stay and train right below Veilstone though.

My Team:
Infernape Lv. 38
Onix Lv. 34
Crobat Lv. 35
Mothim Lv. 36

Ok I actually played today and finaally beat Fantina XD
Best battle ever really!
So I sent in Aipom who lost to Duskull, and then Shellos defeated Duskull!! Then I sent in Grotle, who almost lost to Mismagius but was recalled, while Mismagius had some HP left. I sent in Shellos who immediately lost and I sent in Aipom (who I had used a revive on). Aipom lost, and I sent in Grotle and again revived Aipom. Grotle lost and Aipom won with an Astonish + Critical hit. I finished with 5 HP. Then she sent in Haunter. I used Potions and Oran Berries while she uses Hypnosis, Sucker Punch and Confuse Ray. She almost always missed Sucker Punch, until she ran out of Sucker Punch's. Now she was spammin Confuse Ray and ran out of those while I used items on Aipom :P Then she started spamming Shadow Claw which wasn't effective, and I was asleep so I wasn't doing anything. Afterwards, I used an X Attack and an X Speed to improve Astonish, and after hitting myself in confusion, finally killed Haunter. I finished with 12 HP XD

So I picked up Platinum a few weeks ago and started a new game today. Professor Rowan introduced me into the world of Pokemon and asked me my gender. I picked Male because I am one and named myself Nick. My rival was introduced and I named him Colin, because my best friend is crazy like him! XD I woke in my bedroom which a computer, bookshelf, TV, and Wii...pretty nice! Colin comes rushing in and says that he will fine me or something like that...I shrug it off and proceed downstairs where my Mom is waiting. I try to leave but she stops and tells me how dangerous the grass is...because grass is so dangerous....>.> So I go to Colin's house, he runs into me, and then tells me he forgot something...clumsy Colin...(We call him that IRL) I go see him, then he tells me to meet him near the exit to our town. I go to the exit to find him wanting to go into the grass without a Pokemon...such a carefree and risk taking person...I try to warn him as usual, but he doesn't listen. We start to go, but Professor Rowan stops us. He asks us what we're doing and I stay quite while Colin explains everything because he is an honest person. Rowan asks us if we love Pokemon...twice... we say OF COURSE! Rowan thinks for a sec, but Colin explains our mistakes and Rowan says OK. Dawn comes with the suitcase and questions us like my friend Erin would, so let's call Dawn, Erin. We get to choose, but Colin's lets me go first. I pick...
To be continued!

I spent some time with Mira in Wayward Cave training up Kirlia, but I found out that Kirlia is really weak. Once we made it to the exit I headed back to Hearthome City and went to the gym. Gligar's Faint Attack helped out a lot against all of the ghost types that the trainers used, while Kirlia kept fainting. I made one final heal run and then I challenged Fantina. She started with Duskull which was taken out by 2 Faint Attack's from Gligar. Then she sent out Mismagius so I went with Vespiquen and ate its Sitrus Berry with Bug Bite. Vespiquen held its own for a little while but was taken out by Shadow Ball so Prinplup came in and delivered the finishing blow with Bubblebeam. Kirlia came out against her final Pokemon, Haunter and was defeated by a critical hit Shadow Claw. Gligar was sent back out and used Faint Attack to defeat her final Pokemon. I got my third badge and left the gym. I healed and then challenged my rival in the gate by Hearthome. Prinplup beat Staravia, Vespiquen defeated Grotle, Gligar knocked out Ponyta, and then Kirlia beat Buizel. I saved after the battle.

Continuing from where I left off yesterday... I did everything in Jubilife City, such as talking to Looker, get the Poketch, fight the trainers in the school, then I went north and caught a Budew and trained it vs. Magikarps until it could hold its own vs. trainers. I made my way out of the city and ran into Barry. I battled him, which actually took a little while because his Turtwig kept using Withdraw vs. my Piplup. After the battle, I made my way to the Oreburgh Gate, beat the trainers there with Budew, and even caught a Zubat. Once in Oreburgh City, I went over to the gym to see why Barry was standing in front of it. Apparently the gym leader was down in the mine just south of the city. So that's where I went. In the mine, I trained my Pokemon some more and then battled the trainers. After that I talked to Roark and headed back north to the city.

Then I went into the gym, easily beat the trainers there with Piplup. Then there was only one person left in the gym to battle, and that was Roark himself. Piplup made easy work of his Geodude and Onix, but got OHKO'd vs. Cranidos and so did my other 2 Pokemon. SO... now I'm about to level up Piplup one more time so he'll evolve, and I'll train my Budew up another level or two. THEN I'll be ready for the gym.

Ok, I taught Piplup Peck and evolved him into Prinplup, and taught him Metal Claw. NOW it's time for the gym!

Well after beating the boss at Valley Windworks, I headed to Eterna Forest, battled all of the trainers along the way and in the forest with some hot chick named Cheryl. One I arrived at Eterna City, I went to the underground in order to find a fossil, and it was the Skull Fossil that I found. I also found a few Heart Scales and even a Fire Stone under there. I went back to the surface, went to Oreburgh to revive the fossil into Cranidos.

After that, I went back to Eterna City and battled the trainers in the gym and the gym leader. I used Zubat mostly in the gym battle, and after the battle, he evolved into Golbat. I still haven't evolved Budew yet but I'm working on it. It's hard to get happiness up so fast so early in the game. After the gym, I went to the Galactic building and battled everyone in there. Then I went to the bike shop, received an egg from Cynthia along the way, and got my bike. Now I'm going to ride my bike back and forth with Budew holding the Soothe Bell.

Alright, I finally evolved Budew. I evolved her after arriving at Hearthome City. I made a poffin or 2, and fed them to her, then battled and she evolved. Then I challenged the city's gym and got the badge. The battle with Fantina's Haunter was kinda funny. I sent out my new Eevee and just kept trolling it with Sand Attack and Growl until its stats couldn't lower anymore, then switched out to Prinplup and finished him off. Then the battle was over.

Prinplup lvl 27
Golbat lvl 25
Cranidos lvl 25
Roselia lvl 25

Sweeeeet my Cranidos evolved and so did my Golbat! I feel like I'm cheating now. This Rampardos's attack stat is ridiculous. Too bad I don't have one with the no-recoil ability. Take down does massive damage. Now I'm in the Veilstone Gym, using my new Crobat. However I'll switch to Prinplup and just keep using Peck throughout the gym.

Prinplup lvl 30
Crobat lvl 29
Rampardos lvl 30
Roselia lvl 27

Time to level up Roselia and find another Pokemon. Thinking about a fire type or fighting type. I need something that'll help with the Steel type gym and none of my current Pokemon will make it through that gym.

My 6th slot will be Gible/Gabite/Garchomp.

I did even MORE training last night with the Vs. Seeker and the guy with the Happiny on Route 210 I think? The one north of Solaceon Town, my Prinplup evolved into Empoleon. So now I need to level up the rest... I think I'm going to capture a Ralts and evolve it into Kirlia, then into Gallade next. He'll be of much help in the Steel and Ice gyms. Then for the 8th gym the Gabite I'll have should be good enough.

So after a little training, I decided to go to Pastoria City. I battled all the trainers along the way and finally made it. After healing my pokemon I went straight for the gym, but my rival stopped me. It was an easy battle. Pachirisu beat Staravia and Prinplup, Crobat beat Roselia, and Azumarill beat Ponyta.

I had decided I would try to sweep the entire gym with Pachirisu, but it didnt go as planned. I beat all the trainers in the gym with Pachi but Crasher Wake was a different story...

Pachirisu vs Gyarados:
I used Discharge and Gyarados was in red health. It used Waterfall which only took out about 1/2 my HP. I used Discharge again because I knew Wake was going to use a potion. Before I could deal the finishing blow, he switched to Quagsire (NOOOOO!). I then switched to Crobat who dodged its Mud Bomb.

Crobat vs Quagsire:
I had no idea Quagsire had Rock Tomb, so the match was harder than I thought it would be. I used like 2 Wing Attacks, 2 Bites, and Fly to win with only 12 HP left.

Pachirisu vs Floatzel:
It used Crunch, which took about 1/2 my HP and I used Discharge which took out a liitle more than half of its HP. It then killed me with a critical hit Aqua Jet.

Crobat vs Floatzel:
Hit it with Confuse Ray since Crobat only had 12 HP left. Floatzel killed me with Brine.

Pachirisu vs Floatzel:
I used a Max Revive and Pachi and sent him out. Floatzel used Aqua Jet and I used Disharge. Floatzel was finally down.

Pachirisu vs Gyarados:
Gyarados was in the red, but I knew another potion was coming, so I used Charm. Gyara was back to fulk health so I used Discharge, which STILL didnt kill it and it killed me with a critical hit Waterfall –_–.

Azumarill vs Gyarados:
Finally beat it with Rollout. I got the badge.

After exiting the gym, my rival told me and Wake that Team Galactic was causing trouble at the Great Marsh. We went to check it out and it seemed that a Galactic Grunt had set off a bomb! Wake told me to follow the grunt while my rival stayed behind. I caught up with him and battled him. Easy win. Afterwards, Cynthia came and gave me the SecretPotion to cure the Psyduck North of Solaceon and an Old Charm to give to her Grandma.

I flew to Solaceon via Crobat, went North and cured the Psyduck. I battled all the trainers along the route and my Azumarill was really showing its worth on my team :D. I made it to the next little town and met Cynthia's grandma. She told me a strange man was in front of the Ruins. Team Galatic. I easily beat him. Granny invited me into the Ruins where I saw the drawing. Cyrus came in and told us he wanted to create a new world. So I just decided to battle him:

Infernape vs Sneasal:
Mach Punch OHKOed

Azumarill vs Golbat:
Won with some Rollouts.

Onix vs Murkrow:
My Onix lost to his freaking Murkrow! I cannot wait until I get a Metal Coat....Pachi ended up taking it out. I saved after the battle.

Well I kept going training against all them trainers, until something unexpected happened. Our Shellos, that little Pokemon that loved to flirt with Grotle, evolved in a battle with Aipom to Gastrodon, a powerhouse that does not love Grotle haha :-D
Well yeah we battled all trainers and saw this huge tower. We entered and it apparently it was a Pokemon cemetery :/ My Pokemon did not like to be there, but we still went to the top just to pay tribute to them. I left and arrived in Solaceon, where Drummer our rival told us about Seals. I went to the newspaper place, and they asked for a Shellos!!!! Right after I had evolved mine >.< Oh well. We put Budew and Psyduck in the day care and received the Day Care Poketch App. We went to visit the Solaceon Ruins after. We received the seal case and some seals before we entered the ruins. We stopped for the day and saved.

Well I headed south to Pastoria City and along the way I captured a Houndour, female, level 28. I trained it vs. the Psychics and the Vs. Seeker until it learned Fire Fang at level 30, then I evolved it. After arriving at Pastoria City, I went to the move tutor house and re-learned some moves, such as Swords Dance for Empoleon, Cross Poison for Crobat, and Grasswhistle for Roselia. I'm also going to teach Houndoom Thunder Fang.

Then I went to the gym, easily beat my rival, then went inside. Handled the trainers there with Roselia, then the gym battle... it really pissed me off but I won. 2 of his Pokemon didn't even give me Exp. because mine fainted as well.

Vs. Gyrados... he killed my Roselia and Gyrados fainted due to poison. No EXP gained.

Vs. Quagsire... I beat it with Crobat I believe. Empoleon fainted due to Mud Shot and loss of speed.

Vs. Floatzel... I sent out Rampardos after Crobat fainted since Floatzel was already in the orange health, because it was all I had except Houndoom, and Houndoom would've easily lost. Floatzel used Aqua Jet and brought Rampardos down to low health, but I had chosen Take down before that, so Rampardos and Floatzel both fainted. No EXP gained there either.

I entered the ruins and did all I could do there except capture Unown and left. I headed North and battled all the trainers there, good training. While going to Veilstone City my Grotle evolved into Torterra, and we defeated al the trainers on that route.
Before entering Veilstone City we realized Aipom was close to evolving and so we trained him and he learned Double Hit, and evolved into an Ambipom!! We went to Veilstone City and met up with Dawn there. We were talking and saw Crasher Wake, the fifth gym leader. I must say I absolutely love the song for this city. We received a Porygon but boxed it. We received the Coin Case too. We entered the gym after. Damn this is gonna be tough, the only decent attack against fighters is our Gastrodon's Hidden Power (Psychic) :/ We defeated trainer after trainer. We finally battled Maylene. Torterra defeated Meditite, Lucario too and then Gastrodon defeated Machoke. We saved and stopped for a while

After beating Cyrus in Celestic Town, I decided to beat the trainers below Pastoria City. All easy wins. My Onix was really making me frustrated beause its attack strength was horrible. I decided to box him even though I had him since the first gym. I also decided to box Mothim since Crobat was stealing its thunder. I then put Ralts in my team to be trained.

When that was done, I made my way to Canalave City. Once there, my rival challenged me. Pachi beat Staraptor, Azumarill beat Rapidash, Crobat beat Roserade, and Infernape beat Empoleon. After the battle he said I should go train at Iron Mountain. So I did :). When I got there, I met a guy dressed in all blue. He told me too meet up with him. After some trainer battles, I found him where we teamed up and kicked major tail. He had a Lucario (which will be my last member once I get the Riolu egg) that used Force Palm a lot. I decided to train my pokes here for now.

I opened my Platinum file again after leaving it for some time. I went to the Top Trainer Cafe, and fought Gardenia, Wake, Candice and Mira there. After that I went to the villa to buy some more stuff. I bought the Bookshelf and Rowan came visiting and gave me a few books.

After that, I decided to try the E4. The post-National Pokedex E4 on Platinum is much harder than in Heart Gold, which is both nice and annoying since my team on Heart Gold is higher leveled than my team in Platinum. Like, Lucian's team is roughly on par with Lance (with their highest level 75).

Anyway. The E4 wasn't really hard, but I did get into a few troubles. I knew Cynthia's Garchomp would decimate my team, so I took time to set up. While Spiritomb was out, I used Gliscor to Swords Dance three times and healed. After that it was pretty much Earthquake slaughter. And my Gliscor was faster than Garchomp albeit being 4 levels lower. But I'm not complaining :p

I continued east of Hearthome and battled a lot of trainers until I made it to Solaceon Town. I didn't do much there except explore the Solaceon Ruins and get Defog. I taught it to a random Staravia I captured and then I climbed up the Lost Tower and battled more trainers until I reached the top. I deemed Solaceon done at that point so I headed north and battled more people near a little cafe where I stopped and picked up some Moomoo Milk. After battling a trainer with a Munchlax in the cafe Kirlia reached Lv30 and began to evolve but some mysterious force stopped it for some odd reason. Weird. I continued through a rainy route and had to battle more trainers until I finally reached Veilstone City. I healed my party and went into a small house north of the Pokemon Center and picked up my 5th team member, Porygon!

After some needed training, I got the Riolu egg from Riley and exited Iron Mountain. When I got back to Canalave City. I took a quick Fly to the Ironworks to get the Flamethrower TM so Infernape would have a stronger fire type move.

I decided to hatch the egg before I took the gym challenge. After some cycling, a lonely natured Riolu hatched :D. I slapped my EXP Share on it and went inside the gym. Infernape and Azumarill owned every trainer inside. Then it was time for Byron:

Infernape vs Magneton:
Flamethrower OHKOed it.

Azumarill vs Steelix:
One Surf put Steelix in red health. Then Azumarill took an Earthquake like a boss. Byron used a full restore, but another Surf beat Steelix.

Gardevoir vs Bastiodon:
I used Calm Mind to start and it used Metal Burst. I then used Double Team which made it miss Stone Edge. I used Calm Mind again and it used Metal Burst again. I then used Magical Leaf, which did decent damage, but Bastiodon's Stone Edge hit this time. I was in the red, but luckily got a critical hit Magical Leaf to win it. I got the badge.

After exiting, my rival told me too come to the library. Once there, Rowan told me, Dawn, and my rival of the 3 mirage pokemon. He told us to investigate the lakes where these pokemon lived. Suddenly there was a BOOOOOM. We went outside where a sailor told us there was an explosion at the lake I was assigned (typical). I went to check it out and there were Magikarp everywhere! I fought the grunts and easily beat commander Saturn. After that I went to check out the lake Dawn was assigned, but there were Galactic members there too. Dawn said the couldnt beat commander Mars, so I had to pick up the slack. I owned Mars....and saved after the battle.

I headed back to the route west of Veilstone and rebattled some trainers in an effort to level up Porygon. I got bored of that quickly so I decided just to charge straight to the gym. Dawn was waiting for me in front of the gym so I assume she was there to cheer me on. The Karate Quads didn't pose much of a threat to Vespiquen and Kirlia (who is finally beginning to pull its weight). Once I punched my way through the gym and found Maylene I began the 4th gym battle!

She started with Meditite while I used Vespiquen. Sounds like an easy victory right? Wrong. Meditite knocked out Vespiquen with 2 Rock Tomb's. Fortunately Gust had done a lot of damage so Prinplup won with Brine (A move I have never used before). Gligar came out against Lucario and won with 2 Earthquakes while Kirlia won the battle for me by using Psychic against her Machoke. I got my badge and left only to find Dawn again. She said someone stole her Pokedex so I had Porygon team up with her Clefairy to take on two Galactic grunts. Once we won Looker showed up and took me into the warehouse but it was blocked off from the inside. I did manage to score Fly out of the trip though. Before taking my break I attached the Up-Grade to Porygon. I wonder why???

So, I had evolved my Aquill into Empoleon. I made my way over to Canalave City, and headed to the PokéCenter. I healed up, and headed to the bridge to challenge Barry. Budew beat Torterra and Floatzel, Aquill beat Staraptor, Chateaux beat something (I can't recall!).

He suggested me to go to Iron Island, which was a great idea. I was going to do so anyway, but I was soon training with Riley. I ended up training all but Neslug up to Level 37/38. I am currently near the exit on Iron Island. (Sorta copying DrummerDude's format =P)

Before I continued on with the adventure I traded Porygon so I could evolve it into Porygon2! Then I headed south and battled a couple of trainers before finding a Razor Fang. I just happened to be playing in the evening so I went ahead and evolved Gligar into Gliscor! After the evolution I skipped the rest of the trainers and headed through the small resort until I arrived in Pastoria City. I headed out the south exit and walked in some mud until I found a Dawn Stone which I immediately used to evolve Kirlia into Gallade! The move tutor was my next destination and he taught Gallade Night Slash and Leaf Blade. I battled the fishermen and inner tube kids before heading back through the resort to battle the trainers I had skipped with my new evolutions. The last thing I did was battle the trainers in the restaurant last night and this morning for experience.

My team progressed upwards, skipping Solaceon Town altogether. We trained on the routes, and eventually Bronzor evolved into Bronzong! (*NOTE* Munchlax is a pain to take out) we then continued on- a new member for the team was required, as my team was slightly overlevelled (we're on par with nearly half of Drummerdudes team and we're further behind). This monstrosity of which I hunted for has one name- Lickitung! I saved after catching it (it has the WORST Moveset ever!)

I recently came out from the Distortion World, and battled through Route 222. I looked at my team after I got to Sunnyshore, and decided to train them all to Level 46 before the gym. It took the two Ace Trainers before Veilstone and some Trainer's Gyarados to do so, but it worked. Volkner was fun, and Neslug was definitely my best member for the job. I had little trouble, and I saved not so long afterwards. Short Update, but I am ahead of everyone recently posted, I think.

I finally found it, a Skorupi! I called it Scorpio since it's my zodiac symbol. Anyways, we gave it the Exp. Share and battled the trainers we missed before. We then went to the gym and before that, Drummer appeared. We battled and I won.

Then it was Wake's time! Torterra pwned all the trainers. When it got to Wake... Oh boy... We defeated Gyarados with Torterra, but lost to Floatzel... Stupid Ice Fang! Then that thing killed our Skorupi :/ We called Ambipom and it managed to take it out!! Then with 12 HP Ambipom defeated Quagsire!! Hurray! :D

We left the gym and Drummer told us about a TG grunt and a bomb. Wake showed up and we all went to the Great Marsh and heard a bomb. Then a TG grunt appeared and ran. Wake went in the Marsh, Drummer stayed there protecting and I went after the grunt. He kept running away. We found Looker who started chasing with us. We finally found him and he said he'd battle us. We won. He ran away and Cynthia appeared. She gave us the Secret Potion for the Psyduck, and we left.

We used the SecretPotion and the Psyduck ran away. Our Pelipper (HM slave) used Defog after and we went through all trainers, until we got to Celestic Town. We stopped and saved.

In Celestic Town we met Cynthia's grandmother and we saw a TG grunt. We battled him and he left. We entered the ruins and after a while TG's leader came. We battled and he left again. After we learned more about Sinnoh and received Surf. We flew to Jubilife City and surfed to Canavale. There we battled Drummer and won. We went to the Iron Island and met Riley, a trainer there. Our Skorupi evolved there. We cleared the Cave and battled some TG grunts. We went back to Canavale and battled the gym. Gastrodon defeated every Pokemon there. Then Drummer told us to go to the library. We did and there was Dawn, Drummer and Prof Rowan. Prof Rowan told us about the three lakes and Mesprit, Azelf and Uxie. He asked us to go to each lake, but suddenly, an Earthquake happened. We left and realized it wasn't an earthquake, but a bomb in one of the lakes. I went to the lake we were asked to go to and saw many TG grunts there. We battled them all and entered a cave. There was a TG commander there, Saturn. We defeated him. Then we went to the Lake near our home city. There there were more TG grunts and we defeated them and helped Dawn defeat Mars. Then Prof Rowan asked us to go to the lake Drummer went to, near Snowpoint. We did. On route 206 we met a Pokemon! It was a female Snorunt. We caught it and called it Santas Bud. Once we did that, Snorunt grabbed our Dawn Stone. She evolved into a Froslass!! We stopped and saved.

When I went to the Pastoria Gym my rival confronted me but he was a pushover as usual. Once I entered the gym and saw all the water I realized that Gallade has the only move good against water types so I taught my Porygon2 Shock Wave. Thanks to Shock Wave and Leaf Blade I was able to get through the gym with ease. Crasher Wake stood at the back of the gym and once I reached him we began the battle for the badge! Porygon2's Shock Wave took out Gyarados with a OHKO and then Gallade's Leaf Blade was also a OHKO!! I got cocky and tried out Gliscor against his Floatzel and actually almost won before being knocked out by Aqua Jet, but my newly evolved Empoleon was able to win with Metal Claw. As I exited the gym I was ambushed by my rival talking about a weird guy at the Great Marsh so when we went to investigate...BOOM! For some reason I had to chase the weird guy and even though I defeated him I still let him get away.

Cynthia showed up (a few seconds too late.................curious) and gave me a Secret Potion to use on some Psyduck. Once I used it she showed up again (curious) and gave me an Old Charm. So I had to trek through some thick fog just to be her delivery boy. After battling everyone I got to Celestic Town. The old hag wouldn't except the charm because a Galactic Grunt was causing trouble so I took care of him for her. Before I could give her the charm Cyrus appeared and challenged me for disagreeing with him but Vespiquen performed admirably and won. After getting Surf Cynthia showed up (CURIOUS!!!!!!!!!) and told me to go to Canalave City but first I went to the Fuego Ironworks and then to the routes west of Pastoria for training before taking a break.

Man, I haven't played in a week or two.

After I left the lake Dawn was assigned, I went to check on my rival at Lake Aucity. I went through Mt. Coronet, and found myself in a very harsh blizzard. I decided to catch a Snorunt since it was night, and evolve it into Froslass since I never used one before. I still managed to beat some trainers, but little Pachi was struggling. Actually, she has been a lot lately :(. When I was almost at Snowpoint City, I saw my rival on top of a cliff. He told me I would have to beat the Gym Leader so I could use Rock Climb.

When I got to Snowpoint City, I went to the Pokecenter first. I hesitantly deposited my long time member Pachi for Snorunt. I used the Dawn Stone on her and she evolved into Froslass :). I put my EXP Share on her and then went to the gym. Infernape wiped the floor with the trainers, but then it was time for Candice:

Infernape vs Sneasal:
Mach Punch OHKOed

Infernape vs Piloswine, Froslass, and Abomasnow:
Flamethrower OHKOed all three.

After getting the badge, I went to Lake Aucity. My rival had lost to Commander Jupiter by the time I got there. He went full 2nd Gen Rival on me and started talking about how he HAD to get stronger. I then went to the Galactic Hideout in Vielstone City. Looker and I went the back way through the warehouse. My Froslass kicked major butt dispite being like 6 levels below all the grunts pokemon. I got the Galactic key and heard Cyrus' speech to Team Galactic about making a new world. After the speech was over, I proceeded through the Hideout. Close to the end, I found Cyrus and battled him:

Infernape vs Sneasal:
Mach Punch OHKOed.

Infernape vs Honchcrow:
Critical hit Flamethrower OHKOed.

Froslass vs Crobat:
Two Ice Fangs KOed it.

After the battle, he gave me the Master Ball and I went to release the 3 Mirage Pokemon. In front of the switch was Commander Saturn. I easily defeated him and released Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie from there pods. I saved after.

I went ahead and took on the water routes and the Pal Park route that are south of Sandgem Town because I figured more training couldn't hurt. When I finished there I headed to Canalave City and had a quick battle with the rival before heading to the gym. Gliscor and Empoleon had an easy time against the trainers of the gym. Once I had rode the panels to the top I challenged Byron. Gliscor defeated Magneton with Earthquake while Empoleon beat Steelix and Bastiodon with Surf. When I exited the gym my rival told me to head to the Library, so I did. Professor Rowan gave a speech and told us to search the lakes for mystery Pokemon. Before we could leave there was a huge explosion at Lake Valor. I headed there and once I reached the entrance to the Lake I took a break.

I discovered Team Galactic at the lake and had to battle a few grunts before taking on another leader, Saturn. His team wasn't able to put up much of a fight though so he quickly fled but not before mentioning something about Lake Verity. I went there only to discover Team Galactic was also there. It was double battles this time though and Gliscor and Vespiquen teamed up and destroyed their Houndours and Murkrows. Mars was there and she wasn't near as difficult this time. Professor Rowan was concerned about Lake Acuity so I had to go to Celestic Town and head through Mt Coronet (while picking up 2 Rare Candies) all the way until I reached a snowy route. I wandered in some grass until I found my final team member, a Sneasel. I went to Canalave City after the capture and took a break.

Going to be putting each part in a spoiler tag and try to fit everything into as little posts as I can.

So, I recently restarted in Platinum after trying a Nuzlocke and now I'm going to have an actual team. Each post will cover up to a gym battle and all important events in between until the E4. After that, I might do the post-game. Now, it begins!

http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/b/bc/Roark_IV_OD.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/0/0b/Coal_Badge.png/120px-Coal_Badge.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/b/bc/Roark_IV_OD.png
Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 1: The Coal Badge
- I'm Zach and my rival's name is Matt.
- I picked my starter, Piplup, and nicknamed it Cobblepot.
- Battled my rival right after and beat him. Not listing how the match went because we only have 1 Pokémon.
- Both of us went to Verity Lakefront, saw Cyrus and went back home.
- After heading back home, I watched Dawn show me how to catch Pokémon (as if I didn't already know).
- Caught a Shinx, which I nicknamed Sphinx. Also caught a Bidoof that I nicknamed HM Slave (not listing it on My Team because it is only temporary)
- Did all the stuff in Jubilife City and went to Route 204, only to catch a Budew that I nicknamed Masquerade.
- Battled my rival at Route 203. I don't remember too well how it went, but I have a decent enough idea.
Sphinx VS Starly (Sphinx wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Turtwig (Cobblepot wins)
- Did some more leveling up and eventually reached Oreburgh City. I found Roark and eventually made my way to the gym.
- I lost a couple of times to Roark, thanks to his Cranidos, but I did manage to gain a few levels because of it. I just barely beat him too.
Cobblepot VS Geodude (Cobblepot wins)
Sphinx VS Onix (Sphinx is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Onix (Cobblepot wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Cranidos (Cranidos wins)
Sphinx VS Cranidos (Cranidos wins)
Cobblepot VS Cranidos (Cobblepot wins WITH ONLY 2 HP LEFT!)
- Saved at the Oreburgh Pokémon Center.

My Team
;393;Cobblepot/Piplup- LV 14
Pound, Growl, Bubble & Water Sport

;406;Masquerade/Budew- LV 13
Mega Drain, Growth, Water Sport & Stun Spore

Playtime: 2:05

Next Time: Hoping to have some evolutions and maybe get a new Pokémon.
Tons of stuff has happened since Part 1. I also found out something surprising. Somehow, my entire team managed to get Pokérus!

Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 2: The Forest Badge
- Battled Team Galactic Grunts alongside Dawn at Jubilife City. On the way to Eterna Forest, Cobblepot & Sphinx evolved.
- After exiting Eterna Forest, I got to Eterna City.
- I wanted a Togepi on my team, but since the one from Cynthia is only LV 1, I traded one from my Pearl nicknamed Serena. Might just use the Egg if Cynthia's ends up being female because I can trade it to Pearl and easily level it up.
- Just like Roark, I had trouble with Gardenia. I do know how the final battle went.
Sphinx VS Turtwig (Sphinx wins and is recalled)
Serena VS Cherrim (Cherrim wins)
Masquerade VS Cherrim (Masquerade wins)

- Continued on towards Hearthome City and did everything at Wayward Cave.
- At Hearthome City, I talked to everyone there and got tons of new items.
- I also walked at Amity Square for a bit.

Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 4: The Cobble Badge
- I headed to Solaceon Town, battling some trainers, but not the Joggers (it was nighttime) and Lost Tower (I did that a little bit later).
- Placed the Odd Keystone in its place.
- At Solaceon Town, I talked with all the people there and got some cool stuff.
- In the Solaceon Ruins, I battled the trainers there and got a ton of items, including Defog.
- Went to Veilstone City, battling all the trainers between Solaceon & Veilstone (except the Joggers).
- I skipped over to the next route really quickly and caught my next team member, a Houndour named Tiberius!
- After that, I got some levels on it and it quickly evolved into Houndoom. I went back to the Lost Tower and battled the people there. Pretty sure I saved after that.
- The next day (today), I battled the Joggers and got some more levels on it. I explored the rest of Veilstone City and did some of the Game Corner.
- Went to the gym and saw Dawn, along with Wake.
- In the gym, I battled the trainers, which was a bit annoying because I wanted to get some levels on Tiberius, but its only attacking move is Bite.
- After I battled some trainers, I noticed I had 3 Rare Candies and decided to use one on Tiberius, Masquerade & Serena. They each got a level up and Masquerade even evolved! Serena will probably evolve in another level or two.
- Challenged Maylene and beat her on my first try.
Tiberius VS Meditite (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Machoke (Cobblepot wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Lucario (Lucario wins)
Cobblepot VS Lucario (Lucario wins)
Sphinx VS Lucario (Sphinx wins)
- After that, I went to help out Dawn against the Galactic Grunts. We won easily, but one thing shocked me. When her Clefairy used Metronome, it got.........JUDGMENT!!!!!! Friggin Judgment. Serena would never get a move like that.
- Went into the warehouse with Looker and quickly got HM02, Fly.
- With all that done, I healed and saved at the Veilstone Pokémon Center.

My Team
;394;Cobblepot/Prinplup- LV 31

Playtime: 11:26

Next Time: Getting the Fen Badge and hopefully will have another evolution or two, as well as maybe some new moves to be learned!

By the way, my final capture wont happen for a while. Just letting you guys know.

Also, just noticed that the badge is the Cobble Badge and my starter is Cobblepot. Too bad he couldn't win it for me. Came so close!
Got a new evolution in this part and it was one I was really excited for.

Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 5: The Fen Badge
- Starting where we left off, I journeyed to Pastoria City and as expected, Serena finally evolved into Togetic and now it is getting better moves. I taught it Fly and went to Jubilife to get a Pokétch App.
- Battled all the trainers on the way to Pastoria City and easily made it there.
- At Pastoria City, I talked to all the people there and di the Great Marsh, where I caught 5 Pokémon (Bibarel, Wooper, Quagsire, Tropius & Tangela) in order to get another app.
- After that, I went to Solaceon Town for the newspaper thing to get a Heart Scale and teach Tiberius Thunder Fang.
- Battled Matt and I crushed him with Tiberius & Cobblepot.
Tiberius VS Staravia (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Buizel (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Grotle (Grotle wins)
Bidoof VS Grotle (Grotle wins)
Tiberius VS Grotle (Healed Tiberius before and now he won and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Ponyta (Cobblepot wins)
- Before challenging the gym, I journeyed west and went all the way to Hearthome City, battling all the trainers I could find. The officers and Surf areas will have to wait though.
- I challenged all the gym trainers and went back to Backlot's Mansion to challenged the 5 Maids Thing and won, but couldn't do it within the turn limit.
- Challenged Wake and I crushed him.
Sphinx VS Gyarados (Sphinx wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Quagsire (Masquerade wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Floatzel (Floatzel wins)
Bidoof VS Floatzel (Floatzel wins)
Cobblepot VS Floatzel (Cobblepot wins)

My Team
;394;Cobblepot/Prinplup- LV 35
Defog, Metal Claw, Brine & Pluck
;405;Sphinx/Luxray- LV 35
Tackle, Leer, Bite & Spark
;315;Masquerade/Roselia- LV 35
Mega Drain, Growth, Flash & Stun Spore
;176;Serena/Togetic- LV 35
AncientPower, Shock Wave, Drain Punch & Fly
;229;Tiberius/Houndoom- LV 35
Smog, Thunder Fang, Bite & Fire Fang

Playtime: 14:43

Next Time: Getting the next Badge and doing a bunch of TG stuff. I promise Cobblepot will also evolve in the next part. Also going to be challenging some officers and doing stuff with Surf. Will not be doing Iron Island until Part 7 though because that is also when I get my next team member. I want to make sure it doesn't get too far behind and that I wont be too underleveled later on down the road.
Only one new evolution, though some of my team members have gotten some good moves.

Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 6: The Mine Badge
- Went to see the TG Grunt use the Galactic Bomb, so I followed him and then battled and beat him.
- I got the SecretPotion from Cynthia and cured the Psyduck.
- Battled all the trainers I could battle on the way to Celestic Town.
- Battled Cyrus. Pretty sure Tiberius just crushed his whole team. I do remember that it barely survived against Murkrow. Just 4 HP left (and at first, Tiberius lost more than half his HP).
- Got Surf, so I explored literally every Surfing spot in Sinnoh I could get to and I got a ton of great items & TMs, such as Giga Drain & Flamethrower. I also found out that I never went east of Eterna before, but now I did and battled those trainers. Also battled the trainers west of Celestic Town.
- I headed to Jubilife City and quickly got a new app as I made my way to Canalave City.
- Battled all the trainers on the way and eventually made it there.
- At Canalave City, I talked with the trainers on the west side, healed and then went on the bridge and battled Matt.
Sphinx VS Staraptor (Sphinx wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Rapidash (Cobblepot wins)
Cobblepot VS Heracross (Heracross wins)
Serena VS Heracross (Serena wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Torterra (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Floatzel (Tiberius wins)
- Healed and went to the gym. Beat all the gym trainers and Byron easily.
Tiberius VS Magneton (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Serena VS Steelix (Serena is recalled)
Tiberius VS Steelix (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Serena VS Bastidon (Bastiodon wins)
Bidoof VS Bastiodon (Bastiodon wins)
Tiberius VS Bastiodon (Tiberius is recalled)
Masquerade VS Bastiodon (Masquerade is recalled)
Serena VS Bastiodon (Serena wins)
I tried to have only Serena & Tiberius in the gym and wanted to paralyze Bastiodon with Masquerade, but Bastiodon wouldn't ever beat it. Also didn't want Cobblepot & Sphinx to be in the gym battle to give them a little break.
- Can't do anything with the story until I go to Iron Island and get Strength, so I healed and saved at the Pokémon Center.

My Team
;395;Cobblepot/Empoleon- LV 40
Defog, Flash Cannon, Surf & Pluck
;405;Sphinx/Luxray- LV 40
Tackle, Leer, Bite & Spark

Smog, Thunder Fang, Bite & Flamethrower

Playtime: 18:02

Next Time: Getting my 7th Badge and my 6th Team Member (will be the first thing I do) and doing the required TG stuff.
1 Capture and 4 Evolutions happen in this part. I got a lot done here. Easily one of my most eventful parts. It is also the last part to have any new captures or evolutions for my team.

http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/c/ce/Candice_IV_OD.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/0/09/Icicle_Badge.png/120px-Icicle_Badge.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/c/ce/Candice_IV_OD.png
Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 7: The Icicle Badge
- Got Strength right outside Iron Island from Riley. Thankfully I can come back later for the trainers.
- Went back to Canalave City and witnessed the earthquake, so the group split up.
- At Lake Valor, I battled and crushed Saturn and at Lake Verity, I battled and crushed Mars. I don't remember too well how the battles went, unfortunately, but I will try to remember how future battles go. I'll just write them down or something.
- Anyways, I was finally able to get my 6th team member, who is on Route 217.
- I battled 2 trainers (had to) and saw my caught my new team member, a Swinub named Swine Flu. I quickly evolved it into Piloswine with my Rare Candies. I got a Pokémon for the News Press in Solaceon to get a Heart Scale, taught Swine Flu Ancientpower and a level later, it evolved into Mamoswine.
- Trained it up at Iron Island and I got the Riolu Egg from Riley, as well as a Shiny Stone at the end of Iron Island.
- I needed one more Shiny Stone, so I found one in my brother's Platinum and brought it over. Evolved Serena into Togekiss and then Masquerade into Roserade. Now my team is complete! I also hatched the Riolu Egg.
- I went to locations with Strength (by the way, I gave Strength to Tiberius) to do stuff there and was eventually on my way to Snowpoint City. I battled all the trainers I could on the way there, picked up all items I could, including Rock Climb, and when I got there, I remembered one more thing I could do.
- Went south of Sandgem Town and headed to the Pal Park, picking up some items and battling some trainers. Of course I can't do anything with the Pal Park right now, but I might as well get some leveling up in before the gym battle.
- Before the gym battle, I got some Heart Scales and taught Swine Flu Ice Fang & Serena Aura Sphere.
- I crushed the Snowpoint Gym Trainers and fairly easily beat Candice. Her Froslass was annoying, but not too much of a nuisance.
Serena VS Sneasel (Serena wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Abomasnow (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Piloswine (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Froslass (Tiberius wins)
Looks like another gym without Cobblepot & Sphinx!
- Now that I can use Rock Climb, I taught it to Swine Flu and went to every place I could with Rock Climb and got even more items. Even battled a couple of trainers I missed.
- Went over to Lake Acuity and saw Barry get crushed by Jupiter, but now I know where to go next! Veilstone City! I picked up Blizzard, which was on the other side of Lake Acuity.
- Healed and saved at the Veilstone City Pokémon Center.

My Team
;395;Cobblepot/Empoleon- LV 44
Defog, Flash Cannon, Surf & Pluck
;405;Sphinx/Luxray- LV 44
Iron Tail, Leer, Crunch & Spark
;407;Masquerade/Roserade- LV 44
Giga Drain, Shadow Ball, Flash & Stun Spore
;468;Serena/Togekiss- LV 44
AncientPower, Shock Wave, Aura Sphere & Fly
;229;Tiberius/Houndoom- LV 44
Strength, Thunder Fang, Bite & Flamethrower
;473;Swine Flu/Mamoswine- LV 44
Rock Climb, Earthquake, Ice Fang & Ancientpower

Playtime: 23:33

Next Time: The rest of the TG stuff and my 8th Badge. Will finish up other things in either Part 8 or Part 9 (before I challenge the E4 though).
Of course no new captures and evolutions, but a ton of major battles took place. 2 of them were probably the hardest in the game for me thus far. I also write the battles down now, so I don't forget! By the way, my team doesn't have Pokérus anymore. Some of my boxed Pokémon still have it though! Maybe I'll bring one over to Generation V.

http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/9/9a/Volkner_IV_OD.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/0/0c/Beacon_Badge.png/120px-Beacon_Badge.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/9/9a/Volkner_IV_OD.png
Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 8: The Beacon Badge
- Tons of stuff happened where we left off. I headed into the Galactic Warehouse and battled all the people there.
- Now for the actual Galactic Veilstone Building. I battled all the grunts there and eventually made my way to Cyrus.
Tiberius VS Sneasel (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Honchkrow (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Crobat (Tiberius wins)
Won with 5 HP AND Poison
- After that, I battled Saturn.
Swine Flu VS Golbat (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Bronzor (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Toxicroak (Masquerade is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Toxicroak (Toxicroak wins)
Masquerade VS Toxicroak (Masquerade is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Toxicroak (Swine Flu is recalled)
Tiberius VS Toxicroak (Toxicroak wins)
Swine Flu VS Toxicroak (Swine Flu wins)
Tried to give Swine Flu the EXP on that last one.
- After that, I headed to Spear Pillar and after battling all the grunts, came face to face with Mars & Jupiter.
Masquerade & Munchlax VS Bronzor & Bronzor (Roserade & Bronzor lose)
Tiberius & Munchlax VS Bronzor & Purugly (Munchlax loses)
Tiberius & Rapidash VS Bronzor & Purugly (Bronzor loses)
Tiberius & Rapidash VS Skuntank & Purugly (Tiberius loses)
Swine Flu & Rapidash VS Skuntank & Purugly (Everyone except Swine Flu loses)
Swine Flu & Heracross VS Golbat & Golbat (Heracross loses)
Swine Flu & Floatzel VS Golbat & Golbat (Swine Flue loses)
Cobblepot & Floatzel VS Golbat & Golbat (Golbat loses)
Cobblepot & Floatzel VS Golbat (Cobblepot wins)
That was a tough and annoying fight. Good thing they don't force us to use just 3 Pokémon like in Emerald.
- I headed into the Distortion World and eventually found Cyrus. Battled him and it was tough.
Swine Flu VS Houndoom (Houndoom wins)
Cobblepot VS Houndoom (Cobblepot wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Gyarados (Gyarados wins)
Swine Flu VS Gyarados (Gyarados wins)
Masquerade VS Gyarados (Masquerade is recalled)
Sphinx VS Gyarados (Sphinx wins)
Sphinx VS Weavile (Weavile wins)
Tiberius VS Weavile (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Honchkrow (Honchkrow wins)
Swine Flu VS Honchkrow (Swine Flu wins)
Swine Flu VS Crobat (Swine Flu is recalled)
Masquerade VS Crobat (Crobat wins)
Tiberius VS Crobat (Tiberius is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Crpbat (Swine Flu is recalled)
Tiberius VS Crobat (Tiberius wins)
Another one of those "I want to give Swine Flu the EXP" battles.
- Anyways, after that battle (which was probably one of my toughest in the whole game so far), I battled Giratina. After I weakened it into the red, the first ball I threw was a Poké Ball, just for the laughs. IT SHOOK THREE TIMES!!!!! It actually also did that a second time. The friggin Poké Ball did better than the Dusk Ball, Ultra Ball & Timer Ball. I do wish I had stocked up on Poké, Ultra, Dusk & Timer Balls. I had very few left and unfortunately had to use my Master Ball. Cobblepot was also my last one and down to 29 HP (could easily heal it).
- After that disappointing appearance with Giratina, I was in the outside world again. Headed straight for Sunyshore City, battling all the trainers on the way.
- At Sunyshore City, I talked to all the people there, bought some cool Seals I'll be sure to use for my team and I even got some Pokétch Apps.
- Now it's time for the gym. Beat all the gym trainers and then it was time for Volkner, who I absolutely creamed. The Tag Battle against Mars & Jupiter and the battle with Cyrus were harder.
Tiberius VS Jolteon (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Raichu (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Electivire (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Sphinx VS Luxray (Sphinx wins)
Probably should have recalled Sphinx so Cobblepot could take the final win.
- After the easy gym battle (probably the easiest one I've ever had), I got Waterfall and taught it to Cobblepot (who is now the new HM Slave.....). Went to all the places with Waterfall.
- Healed and saved at the Sunyshore City Pokémon Center.

My Team
;395;Cobblepot/Empoleon- LV 47
Defog, Waterfall, Surf & Rock Smash
;405;Sphinx/Luxray- LV 47
Iron Tail, Leer, Crunch & Spark
;407;Masquerade/Roserade- LV 47
Giga Drain, Shadow Ball, Flash & Sludge Bomb
;468;Serena/Togekiss- LV 48

;229;Tiberius/Houndoom- LV 47
Strength, Thunder Fang, Bite & Flamethrower
;473;Swine Flu/Mamoswine- LV 47
Rock Climb, Earthquake, Ice Fang & Ancientpower

Serena appeared in absolutely no major battles this part (shocking, right?), but is still my highest leveled. A bit ironic, even though I did battle every trainer I could see.

Playtime: 28:01

Next Time: The Elite 4 & Champion! I'll be doing some other minor things I never did before that though (like the stuff with the Underground Man, which I did a bit of).
It's finally here! The end of the main game! I finish Victory Road, battle my rival, do some minor things and battle the E4 & Champion!

Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 9: The Elite Four & Champion Cynthia
- I headed to Victory Road and easily made it there.
- Battled every trainer and I collected every item in Victory Road. Got some helpful movers, such as Dark Pulse.
- At the Pokémon League, I battled Rival Matt. Fairly easy battle.
Swine Flu VS Staraptor (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Floatzel (Masquerade wins and is recalled)
Serena VS Rapidash (Serena wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Heracross (Heracross wins)
Serena VS Heracross (Heracross wins)
Tiberius VS Heracross (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Torterra (Cobblepot wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Snorlax (Swine Flu wins WITH 1 HP!)
Pretty good battle. Cobblepot VS Torterra just had to happen.
- Did the Underground Man's tests, just to have those finished.
- Got my team all at the same level (50), which wasn't too hard to do. Taught them all some great moves and I was ready to take on the E4!
- VS Aaron
Swine Flu VS Yanmega (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Scizor (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Heracross (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Vespiquen (Swine Flu wins)
Swine Flu VS Drapion (Swine Flu wins)
One of the easiest battles of the E4. Tiberius & Swine Flu had 4x effective moves against some Pokémon. Could have used Serena against Heracross, but decided against it.
- VS Bertha
Masquerade VS Whiscash (Masquerade wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Gliscor (Cobblepot wins with only 12 HP)
Cobblepot VS Hippowdon (Cobblepot wins)
Cobblepot VS Golem (Cobblepot wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Rhyperior (Masquerade wins)
Easier than Aaaron! Used 4x effective moves during the whole battle.
- VS Flint
Swine Flu VS Houndoom (Houndoom wins, 1st Casualty for me in the E4)
Serena VS Houndoom (Serena wins)
Serena VS Infernape (Infernape wins)
Cobblepot VS Infernape (Cobblepot wins)
Cobblepot VS Magmortar (Magmortar wins)
Swine Flu VS Magmortar (Magmortar wins)
Sphinx VS Magmortar (Magmortar wins)
Masquerade VS Magmortar (Masquerade is recalled)
Tiberius VS Magmortar (Magmortar wins)
Masquerade VS Magmortar (Masquerade wins)
Masquerade VS Flareon (Flareon wins)
Swine Flu VS Flareon (Swine Flu wins)
Swine Flu VS Rapidash (Rapidash wins)
Cobblepot VS Rapidash (Cobblepot wins)
Obviously much tougher than the previous 2 battles. Magmortar wrecked my team, but of course I would heal up. I went a bit overboard with healing items. This was when the Pokémon League really started to "heat up" (pun intended).
- VS Lucian
Sphinx VS Mr. Mime (Sphinx wins and is recalled)
Tiberius VS Bronzong (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Gallade (Gallade wins)
Serena VS Gallade (Gallade wins)
Tiberius VS Gallade (Gallade wins)
Sphinx VS Gallade (Sphinx wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Alakazam (Alakazam wins)
Sphinx VS Alakazam (Sphinx wins)
Sphinx VS Espeon (Espeon wins)
Cobblepot VS Espeon (Cobblepot wins)
Though I got some great wins right off the bat, I'd definitely say this battle was harder than Flint. Cobblepot was close to losing. By the way, it always seems to be up to Cobblepot in my most hardest and intense battles.
- Now it's time for Champion Cynthis! As expected, I did lose a couple of times. Twice to be precise. The first time, I managed to beat her Garchomp, Togekiss & Milotic, before losing to Lucario. The second time, I only beat Garchomp. Not sure who I lost to the second time, probably Milotic. This is why I save before each E4 Match. Without further ado, here is the final match of the main game, Zach VS Champion Cynthia- The Most Epic Battle I Had In The Game!
Tiberius VS Spiritomb (Spiritomb recalled)
Tiberius VS Lucario (Lucario wins)
Swine Flu VS Lucario (Lucario wins)
Sphinx VS Lucario (Lucario is recalled, paralyzed)
Sphinx VS Garchomp (Garchomp wins)
Serena VS Garchomp (Garchomp wins)
Swine Flu VS Garchomp (Swine Flu wins and is recalled)
Masquerade VS Lucario (Lucario wins)
Tiberius VS Lucario (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Milotic (Milotic wins)
Cobblepot VS Milotic (Cobblepot is recalled)
Masquerade VS Milotic (Masquerade wins and is recalled)
Sphinx VS Togekiss (Sphinx wins, critical)
Sphinx VS Spiritomb (Spiritomb wins)
Tiberius VS Spiritomb (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Cobblepot VS Roserade (Roserade wins)
Swine Flu VS Roserade (Roserade wins)
Masquerade VS Roserade (Roserade wins)
Tiberius VS Roserade (Roserade wins)
Cobblepot VS Roserade (Cobblepot wins)
Longest and most stressful battle ever. If I didn't paralyze Lucario thanks to Sphinx's Spark, I might have lost. Lucario has super effective moves against everyone on my team except Masquerade and can hit very hard, very fast. I was surprised at how well Cynthia's Roserade did (mine could learn a thing or 2), but when it came down to it, my final Pokémon, good ol' Cobblepot pulled off the win!

My Team
;395;Cobblepot/Empoleon- LV 52
Ice Beam, HP (Psychic), Surf & Flash Cannon
;405;Sphinx/Luxray- LV 51
Iron Tail, Leer, Crunch & Spark
;407;Masquerade/Roserade- LV 50
Energy Ball, Shadow Ball, Flash & Sludge Bomb
;468;Serena/Togekiss- LV 50
Fire Blast, HP (Electric), Aura Sphere & Fly
;229;Tiberius/Houndoom- LV 51
HP (Ice), Thunder Fang, Dark Pulse & Flamethrower
;473;Swine Flu/Mamoswine- LV 51
Return, Earthquake, Ice Fang & Stone Edge

This team truly was amazing. We've been through so many tough battles and somehow, pulled through all of them! The journey isn't over yet though!

Playtime: 31:45

Next Time: The Aftergame! Going to need to see the Lake Guardians & Rotom first though.

Part 10 and up are in a later post.

After I evolved my Snorunt to Froslass I trained it to level 35. Then I went to the Lake Acuity. Meanwhile I found HM Rock Climb. When I got to the lake, I saw some weird rocks and Drummer. Drummer told me that I needed to win the 7 badge to actually get to the lake. So we went to Snowpoint City and took on the gym. The most annoying gym ever. I had to go get TM Brick Break to like, win. I lost so many times against her. Too many times... That Froslass... Manages to kill my whole team. Except Ambipom, who lost against the Snow Man guy who I forgot the name. But, eventually I got tired of losing, so I got some Sitrus Berries. I managed to OHKO Sneasel with Ambipom, and defeat Abomasnow (thats the snow man lol) whitout losing Ambipom. Then I poisoned Froslass with Drapion who lost after. I then sent in Gastrodon who had a Sitrus Berry. ****ING Froslass that kept avoiding surf!! SO ANNOYING!! AND THEN THAT ANNOYING SITRUS BERRY! ARGHHH -_- OMG and then she used a Full restore!!!!!!!! (im writing this as i battle) Ok now I have no chances :( I sent in my Froslass. Froslass survived with 3 HP... and then I used crunch... and her Froslass... has like 1 HP left... and my Froslass is dead. I sent in my Ambipom. Meh it has 25 HP and it's probably slower :/ OMG Ambipom is faster XD I killed Froslass finally!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Ambipom!! Let's not forget you've beaten the odds many times, against Fantina and Crasher Wake too!!!!!!!!!!! Here comes Piloswine... I trust Ambipom to beat it. I used Brick Break and... it didn't die?!?!?!?! :O There goes Ambipom... My last chance, Torterra... Not very confident... I used Razor Leaf... YES!! Finally XD XD XD!!!!!!! Omg Im so happy after losing like 5 times to that Froslass... I finally received my seventh badge!! I the received the TM for Avalanche. Let's take a minute and thank my Ambipom. It OHKO Sneasel, 2HKO Abomasnow, and managed to defeat Froslass. Thank you haha :P BTW I taught Ambipom Brick Break. I went to visit Snowpoint's temple, but apparently Im not important enough :/

I taught Rock Climb to Torterra. I went to the lake and saw Jupiter leave. Drummer said he couldn't do anything and Uxie was suffering. Then Jupiter left and so did Drummer. I surfed to this area with grass and found TM Blizzard there. I also caught a Snorunt there. Level 40 male Snorunt. Called it HockeyMask. I saved after.

A while ago, I started a new game on Platinum. I got to Jubilife and put it down for a while. All I had was a Jolly Chimchar. So Yesterday, I picked it up again and finally decided on a team. I went North to the cave so that I could get a Zubat, which I did. The second Zubat I caught was Adamant! Yes! I stopped there and will continue later...

This is what you get after two weaks of holiday, being behind all the others who started playing Platinum at the same time. So, to catch up...

I started my game, and it appeared that I was on my way to Canalave city. I originally wanted to lvl before the gym, but I decided that I wouldn't, instead I'm going to rush to the League, and then train. I'm also skipping most of the trainers, but not the gym ones. So, on the bridge in Cavalave I encountered my rival and trashed him. Then I owned Byron and his gym. And after that I owned team Galactic in the lakes. And I burned the Ice gym, until nothing but ash remained. Went to Veilstone, and then to Spear Pillar after that. Right now I've just defeated team Galactic, for what I believe is the last time. I have saved in front of Dialga, since I'm trying to get a decent nature.
The team hasn't lvld that much, but I'll catch up before I challenge the E4.

After I caught a Snorunt I flew to Veilstone City cuz I could predict where TG was going next... :P
I went next to their headquarters and saw this dumb TG grunt and defeated him I think. Then Looker came and apparently he had the key for the TG basement thing or whatever it was. We went there and went through the whole house defeating random Team Galactic grunts. At some point, HockeyMask, also known as Snorunt evolved into Glalie! Finally, my team is complete. At the end I found another key, for the main headquarters of Team Galactic. We went in there, but had to stop because our battery turned red and we don't take risks. We saved and stopped.

I spent some time in Iron Island trying to level up Sneasel but it proved difficult because of the lack of decent attacks. It proved helpful in the end though and once I finished up there I returned to Celestic Town and went back through Mt Coronet to the snowy area where I caught Sneasel. I beat the trainers around here and then continued north into a blizzard. It was difficult getting through with limited visability but I did it and also found a new HM. I found my rival already near Lake Acuity and he told me I would be unable to reach it without another badge. Not to get too far behind him I went to Snowpoint City and saved in front of the gym.

I kept playing and entered the TG HQ. We went through it and found Cyrus give a stupid speech. We found Looker too. So after the speech we found Cyrus and fought him. We lost the first time cuz my Torterra missed its attack and got killed. Shame. That Crobat is tough no joke. My Ambipom defeated Sneasel, Glalie defeated Crobat, and last but not least Honchkrow... He is so hard. At least Drapion is faster, so it used Rock Tomb to decrease Honchkrow's speed, but not enough to kill it. Since I was getting tired of this fight because of the Sitrus Berry, I just called in Froslass because it's faster (much faster now) and has epic moves. One Ice Fang killed the bird finally. It also leveled up. And so did Torterra, Hurray. And wtf the bad guy gave me a master ball lol. I took the warp panel Cyrus told me about before he left, and went to save Mesprit, Azelf and Uxie. We found Saturn there and the old guy too and the battle begun. I put Gastrodon first because he has the most HP of all my Mon', but its very slow though. Oh well, Air Cutter did nothing (from Golbat). I started spamming Surf, while getting spammed with Air Cutter. I defeated Golbat, then he sent a Bronzor. I sent... Froslass. I started using Crunch for the sake of it. Got hit by a Gyro Ball. Another Crunch. Then he confused me. I didn't pull off a Crunch though. I tried again and snapped out of my confusion, and defeated Bronzor! Next is Toxicroak... It's Torterra's time to shine! Even though it probably won't survive any attack because it has 55 HP. Unfortunately, Toxicroak used X Scissor first and defeated Torterra. I sent in Ambipom. Used return, did a lot of damge but wtf the frog has a berry, and a brick break :O I lost. I sent in Glalie... Not expecting the best... He used Poison Jab which killed Glalie because it had 38 hp... Sent in Froslass (21 HP...) DAMNIT CANT USE ATTRACT ****ING FEMALE TOXICROAK :O Used Crunch... what a dumb move.... and lost... My last hope is Gastrodon... 93 HP... My hidden power is Psychic so it should be good...He used BRICK BREAK... ****ING CRITICAL HIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *RAGE*
I need to take a break, Im sorry.

I was shocked by how easy a time I had in the Snowpoint Gym. Sneasel and Empoleon took out most of the trainers and I didn't have too much difficulty with the snowball puzzle. Even Candice wasn't that bad. Vespiquen took out her Sneasel with Attack Order, Piloswine fell because of Empoleon's Surf and then Abomasnow was defeated thanks to a combined effort from Vespiquen and Porygon2. I thought Froslass would be bad but it got taken out by Sneasel's Faint Attack while it spammed Double Team. The Icicle Badge is mine! I was able to scale the rocks now and I found my rival had been defeated by Jupiter just seconds before I got there. She mentioned something about their headquarters in Veilstone so I went there and began scouring the facility. I found a Dubious Disc which I gave to Porygon2 before finding a Card Key which gave me access to the main building. I fought through more grunts and eventually had to take on Cyrus. I didn't have as much trouble as TheSirPeras did but his Crobat was annoying. Once I beat him he gave me a Master Ball so I continued on and battled Saturn in an easy battle (Sorry SirPeras). I released the 3 Mystical Pokemon and then went towards Mt Coronet.

I began my ascent to the top in this dark mountain. Occasionally I could go outside but it was difficult to see anything because of the weather. For some reason there were some Galactic grunts spewed out around the mountain but my team took care of most of them. When I reached the Sky Pillar I was about to be tag teamed by Mars and Jupiter but my rival showed up and helped me. He proved to be dead weight. ALL of his Pokemon fainted during the battle but only one of mine did (Gliscor). Only his Rapidash helped out by taking down one of the Bronzor. Once they were defeated he ran off and I watched Cyrus call Dialga and Palkia. Before he could command them Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf appeared and intervened just long enough for Giratina to appear and abduct Cyrus. Cynthia (Where the f*** did she come from?) and I chased after them into the Distortion World.

Still probably had room on the first post for this, but since we are starting the aftergame, I figured I'd start on a new post.

It's finally time for the aftergame! I cover a lot of things (not everything) before heading off to the Fight Area.

http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/1/15/Pt_Lucas_Back.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/2/21/Pt_Barry_Back.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/5/50/DP_Flint_E4.pnghttp://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/8/86/SpriteVolkner.png
Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 10: VS Flint & Volkner At The Fight Area!
- Firing up the game for the first time after my miraculous win over Cynthia, my mom tells me about Matt wanting me to go somewhere, or something. Not doing that until later in the part.
- I get data on the remaining Pokémon in the Pokédex, which are the Lake Trio & Rotom. Didn't catch Mesprit yet, though I did get Uxie, Azelf & Rotom (had to make my 3DS's time night temporarily though). I even caught Rotom on my first Ultra Ball! (I know how easy that is......)
- Now I finally got the National Dex (along with the Poké Radar, not that I'll use it) and many new things opened up.
- First, I headed to the Pal Park (already battled the trainers during the main game) and got the Trainer Counter App from Oak. Will be getting all the other items received there later.
- Went to Celestic Town to talk to the elder, who told be about Dialga & Palkia. Will be getting them soon.
- Headed over to Eterna City and talked to Professor Oak and now the three birds are roaming around Sinnoh. Will be getting them soon as well.
- I flew over to Canalave City and went to Fullmoon Island and got the Lunar Wing (will be getting Cresselia soon). Also went to Iron Island to get a Metal Coal from Byron.
- Moved on over to Turnback Cave and eventually got the Griseous Orb.
- Went to Victory Road for the stuff with Marley. It was a bit tricky to do because I didn't want to give my team HMs they didn't need, so I had to box some of my team members. It all worked out in the end as I battled all the trainers, found all the items and got a couple of levels on my team.
- Now it is time for the Fight Area. Went to the boat at Snowpoint City and Cynthia appeared. After she talked, I boarded my boat and was on my way. By the way, I didn't go to Snowpoint Temple because there is nothing to do there yet.
- At the Fight Area, Matt appeared and asked if I can battle alongside him against Flint & Volkner. I said yes and it was a tough battle!
Swine Flu & Staraptor VS Houndoom & Luxray (Everyone except Luxray loses)
Tiberius & Torterra VS Magmortar & Luxray (Tiberius is recalled)
Serena & Torterra VS Magmortar & Luxray (Torterra loses)
Serena & Floatzel VS Magmortar & Luxray (Floatzel loses)
Serena & Snorlax VS Magmortar & Luxray (Serena & Luxray lose)
Masquerade & Snorlax VS Magmortar & Jolteon (Masquerade & Magmortar lose)
Tiberius & Snorlax VS Flareon & Jolteon (Snorlax loses)
Tiberius & Heracross VS Flareon & Jolteon (Heracross & Jolteon lose)
Tiberius & Rapidash VS Flareon & Electivire (Tiberius loses)
Sphinx & Rapidash VS Flareon & Electivire (Flareon loses)
Sphinx & Rapidash VS Electivire (Sphinx wins)
As you can see, this was a very tough battle. Matt lost his whole team and I was down to my second to last one. I didn't even need Cobblepot!
- After that intensely heated and electrified battle (puns intended), I got the Super Rod from a fisherman and upgraded my Vs. Recorder.
- Healed and saved at the Fight Area's Pokémon Center.

Next Time: Pretty straightforward, I'll be covering Route 225 & the Survival Area. I'll probably have to go through Route 225 twice because you need Cut & Rock Climb to full explore it.

Easily the most uneventful part, but things will get better soon.

Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 11: Route 225 & The Survival Area!
- Went through Route 225 and made it to the Survival Area. Got my HM Slaves and I went back to Route 225 to get the items I missed.
- Purchased some seals at Sunyshore. I'll be sure to use them on my team eventually.
- Taught Sphinx Superpower thanks to the Move Tutor. Hopefully I can get it for Swine Flu soon. I don't have enough shards for it.

Got another pretty uneventful part, though the next one will be good! Didn't even know what to put for the picture at the top. Battled a bunch of Ace Trainers, so hopefully this is good.

http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/f/f9/DP_Cool_Trainer_M.png
Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 12: Route 226 & Route 227!
- All I really did was just go through Routes 226 & 227.
- Talked the Meister and also managed to get an upgrade to the Pokédex/
- Had to teach Swine Flu Rock Climb (took off Return) because I wanted everyone at Stark Mountain and you need Rock Climb.

Zach's Pokémon Platinum Adventure Part 13: Team Galactic At Stark Mountain!
- Headed to Stark Mountain and was immediately face to face with Mars & Jupiter.
- VS Mars
Tiberius VS Bronzong (Tiberius wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Purugly (Purugly wins)
Cobblepot VS Purugly (Cobblepot wins and is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Golbat (Swine Flu wins)
- VS Jupiter
Tiberius VS Bronzong (Tiberius wins)
Tiberius VS Skuntank (Tiberius is recalled)
Swine Flu VS Skuntank (Swine Flu wins)
Swine Flu VS Golbat (Swine Flu wins)
Fairly easy battles. Would have been interesting to see them with other Pokémon too.
- After that, I teamed up with Buck and we explored all of Stark Mountain that we could. Some places I would have to come back too.
- Made it where Charon was and saw him getting arrested. Would have been nice to actually battle him.
- After parting with Buck, healed at the Survival Area and went back to Stark Mountain to explore the Rock Climb parts and other areas of the mountain that I missed.
- Went back to the Survival Area to talk with Buck and gain entry to the Battleground. Will be doing all the battles in a nice, orderly fashion in a couple of parts. For anyone curios, the people I can battle today are Byron, Candice, Volkner & Buck.
- Healed and saved at the Survival Area's Pokémon Center.

OK, it might not have been the #1 most eventful post, but it's better than the last 2.

I went against Saturn again. This time it was better. Froslass won against Golbat, Gastrodon won against Bronzor and Froslass beat Toxicroak. I released Azelf, Uxie and Mesprit. I then headed to the top of Mt. Coronet. I managed to level up a bit on my way. Gastrodon and Ambipom were really helpful here. I taught some new moves, Blizzard to Glalie and Froslass, Thunder to Froslass, Hyper Beam to Glalie, Rock Slide to Drapion. Drummer came to help me in a double battle against Mars and Jupiter. I sent in Gastrodon and Drummer sent in... a Munchlax... I ended up killing Munchlax because it was spamming Stockpile... so he sent in Staraptor. It was thanks to me Purugly, Skuntank, Bronzor (x2) . Yeah. Gastrodon is that awesome! Staraptor did help but you know almost nothing! I had an Exp. Share on Glalie the whole time and he got to level 46. He called back Staraptor and sent in Roserade agaisnt Golbat?? Oh well... My Gastrodon lost against a Giga Drain though. I sent in Froslass and used Blizzard... which missed... -_- I used it again and knocked out both Golbat... Yaii... I'll say Froslass is actually pretty good now. It used to be weak but not anymore! And at least Drummer healed our Pokemon! And he left like wtf? Cyrus spawned Dialga and Palkia afterwards. It was pretty cool lol.Then I saw Uxie, Azelf and Mesprit appeared to protect Sinnoh and eventually Giratina appeared!! Giratina took Cyrus to a different world... the Distortion World... Cynthia appeared (like Drummerdude said, wtf?). The three mitical Pokemon went there too and then I jumped in there with Cynthia to try and save the world! And like Drummerdude, I stopped and saved.

I got to the Distortion World and talked with Cynthia about where exactly we were. She somehow knew and decided to ditch me instead of doing the smart thing and teaming up through this place. I got lost quite a few times because of stones taking me to dead ends or floating stones disappearing whenever I got near them. After 10 minutes or so I found the 3 Mystical Pokemon who were trying to help me with a Strength puzzle. Uxie's and Mesprit's were easy but Azelf's took a little time to get to but featured a cool surfing sequence. Once I solved the puzzle I rode a platform down and confronted Cyrus. Gliscor beat his Houndoom with Earthquake and Porygon2 defeated his Gyarados with Thunderbolt. He went to Weavile next so I sent out Vespiquen and wanted to use Attack Order but Weavile's Ice Punch froze Vespiquen and then knocked it out in the next turn. Empoleon came out and beat it with a few Flash Cannons. Honchkrow was beaten by a combination of Sneasel and Empoleon while Gallade beat his Crobat with Psycho Cut. Cyrus fumed about his loss and stepped aside as I took on Giratina. I ended up knocking it out and leaving.

For some reason I had to go visit Rowan after saving the world but not my mom. He blabbered on before letting me go. I flew to Snowpoint and headed south to the Rock Climb spot and grabbed Ice Beam and taught it to Empoleon. Then I went to Pastoria and battled some swimmers between the city and the resort before taking a break.

Affter I entered the Distortion World we headed to find Cyrus and Giratina and save Sinnoh! Cynthia ended up going her way and we saw Mesprit once. We saw Cynthia again and she told us a bit more about the Distortion World. Eventually we went down a lot and saw Cyrus. He left again. Arghh. We went down more and saw Uxie and he left too. We went down again and saw Uxie and CYnthia again. We saw Mesprit again and he left again. We saw Giratina fly by. We pushed some boulders on some holes until Uxie and Mesprit left their places. After some time we managed to find our way and Giratina flew by us. Eventually we saw the last mirage pokemon, Azelf. We pushed a boulder to the hole next to Azelf. Cynthia tols us the Mirage Pokemon left and then a new platform behind her appeared. We went down and found Cyrus. And the battle begun! Lucky we had Gastrodon in first against Houndoom. We OHKO'd it with Surf!! Then Gyarados was sent in, so I sent it Froslass. We hit it with Thunder but didn't kill it! So I had to use Attract. I missed a Thunder afterwards and Gyarados killed me :( I sent in Drapion and used Toxic. He used Earthquake wow. Didn't kill me though. I then used Rock Slide, which was pertty good. The Gyarados flinched! Then another Rock Slide almost killed it, and he killed us, but the Toxic killed him so a tie!! I sent in Ambipom now. He sent in Honchkrow. This won't be easy. I managed to hit it with Iron Tail, and it did pretty decent damage, and then we survived a Horn Drill. Then we used Return and killed Honchkrow. He sent in a Weavile now... We're keeping Ambipom. Damnit hes faster and flinched us. He then defeated us. We sent in Glalie. We used Avalanche due to the bonus since we know Weavile is faster. Didn't do much though. So we used Hyper Beam! Didn't do much either and Weavile had a berry. We then lost and sent in Gastrodon. Surf vs Ice Punch. We survived Ice Punch and Weavile took some damage from Surf. Another Surf VS Ice Punch. We survived again and killed Weavile! Then he sends in Crobat. We had to use a Max Revive on Froslass, otherwise we wouldn't win. We managed to survive one hit by Crobat though, but there's nothing else to be done. Gastrodon, after defeating two Pokemon, went down. So we sent in Torterra to see if we could win this or not. We used Rock Climb, but got ht first by Cross Poison. Barely did anything though. And Rock Climb wasn't great either. He confused us and we hit ourselves. He used Toxic and we snapped out of confusion and hit it with Rock Climb. Crobat is halfway down now! Crobat missed its move and we hit it again. I think one more Rock Climb will do, but the poison is starting to hurt now.Crobat used Air Slash and we survived with 11 HP!! We used Rock Climb and managed to defeat Crobat! And Torterra leveled up :) It's trying to learn Crunch but we won't teach it because the only grass move it will learn now is Leaf Storm since we already know Giga Drain. Woo hoo we defeated Cyrus! Cyrus left after and Cynthia healed our Pokemon. Giratina appeared and we started our battle with it. First came Gastrodon and she used Hidden Power. Did nothing basically. Gastrodon ended up losing anyways. I sent in Froslass and Blizzard'd Giratina. It was quite strong. Giratina used Ominous Wind which almost defeated our Pokemon. Froslass used Ice Fang and now it's time to try and capture the Giratina. We sent in Drapion just because it's a good tank. We tried an Ulta Ball and failed lol. We then googled a bit and realized we can go back for Giratina if we kill it, so we killed it for exp. Cyrus came back and blabbed. Then we passed a portal and went back to Sinnoh. Then I headed to Prof. Rowan. I love how absolutely nobody knows you saved the world. It's like they didn't hear about Giratina, Dialga and Palkia appearing or anything like that, wasn't on the news or anything like that. The least they could do was give me all their Pokemon as a thank you present so I can rule the world...

Anyways, we flew to Sandgem Town and met up with Prof Rowan. Well no presents from him either. He told us to go to Sunyshore and we will. BUT! I will next time :D I saved and stopped.

Pearl

Recently picked up my Pearl cartridge after months of not playing. I'd stopped right before the 7th Gym for some odd reason, so I've spent the past few days defeating the remaining Gym Leaders + Pokemon League and completing post-game. Team's quite random, but probably one of my all-time favourites:

;392;
Mylo ♂
Mild Nature [60]
{Close Combat, Flamethrower, Grass Knot, Rock Slide}
Trusty starter. Never actually used Infernape before this playthrough. Shocking how useful he is compared to all the Gen V starters. Close Combat is amazing and maims everything that doesn't resist it. Originally had Flare Blitz on this set, but I find Flamethrower better for longevity and his Special Attack is higher anyway due to his Mild Nature. Grass Knot hits Water-types hard and Rock Slide is basically a filler.

;279;
Hannah ♀
Modest Nature [63]
{Surf, Air Slash, Ice Beam, Fly}
From my old Diamond file, which I lost all my Pokemon on bar her (transferred them all to Ranch and the Wii broke.) Had to raise her to level 47 as a Wingull - pain in the arse, but worth it for Air Slash. Surf is also for STAB and Ice Beam is just useful in general. She achieves near perfect coverage with these 3 moves (only Empoleon and the Lanturn line resist it iirc), so Fly is for utility.

;413;
Heidi ♀
Quiet Nature [60]
{Energy Ball, Psychic, HP Fire, Leaf Storm}
A weird choice, but definitely one of my favourite Pokemon from Gen IV. Took so many attempts to catch a female Burmy with HP Fire, but she needs it for coverage. Modest Nature would have been ideal, but eh, a + Special Attack nature is sufficient. Leaf Storm is surprisingly powerful despite her decidedly average Special Attack and Energy Ball is basically there for a reliable alternative. She doesn't get special Bug STAB unfortunately, so Psychic is there to hit Fire-types which otherwise resist this set.

;308;
Jayden ♂
Naive Nature [61]
{Hi Jump Kick, Zen Headbutt, Ice Punch, Thunderpunch}
This guy is insane with Pure Power. Even with his rather poor nature, he OHKO's essentially everything. I traded him to HG to tutor Zen Headbutt on him for secondary STAB, and Ice Punch and Thunderpunch don't serve much purpose rather than dealing with other Psychic types and adding extra coverage.

;442;
Hecuba ♀
Brave Nature [60]
{Nasty Plot, Dark Pulse, Shadow Sneak, HP Fighting}
Another difficult one to obtain, especially with HP Fighting, but she achieves perfect coverage with it, so it was totally worth it. Again, nature's rather crap, but at least it gives Shadow Sneak a boost.

;130;
Kuma ♂
Adamant Nature [60]
{Dragon Dance, Waterfall, Stone Edge, Earthquake}
Wasn't actually intending to use him since I already had a Water/Flying type, but he was on the team since the beginning just sort of gathering dust, so I decided to EXP Share him up after the 4th Gym. Adamant nature is a huge boon and he destroys everything after a couple of DD boosts. Again, he pretty much has perfect coverage, bar Breloom who isn't in the Sinnoh Dex anyway.


;392;;279;;413;;308;;442;;130;




Diamond

I've turned my attentions to Diamond now that Pearl's been completed. I'm not nearly as far along in this one. I'm up to about 5 Gym Badges now.

;395;
Pecola ♀
Serious Nature [42]
{Surf, Ice Beam, Grass Knot, Aqua Jet}
Like I mentioned with Mylo, going from his 5th Gen equivalent - Samurott in this instance - to this guy is really odd - she's a huge step up, with better typing and stat distribution. My original intention was to run an Agility set, since hwe speed leaves a lot to be desired, but unfortunately it's an egg move, so Aqua Jet will have to suffice instead. Surf is the old classic and provides powerful and reliable STAB, whereas the standard Ice type move is covered by Blizzard, which will be replaced by Ice Beam as soon as I get the TM. Grass Knot rounds off the set and is brilliant against opposing Water types most of the time. Her nature isn't the best, but it works I suppose since it doesn't ruin her defenses or weaken either Aqua Jet or her special attacks.

;414;
Midas ♂
Modest Nature [42]
{Air Slash, Signal Beam, HP Fighting, Psybeam}
Don't think I've actually come across anyone else using Mothim in-game, which is a shame since he's not completely awful and his design far suprasses the other early game bugs imo. Anyway, Air Slash and Signal Beam provide invaluable STAB. Steel resists both these so Hidden Power helps against them. Psybeam isn't much worth at all, but he learns Psychic by level-up soon, so it'll be replaced then.

;068;
Lex ♂
Brave Nature [42]
{Cross Chop, Stone Edge, Ice Punch, Brick Break}
In all my years of playing Pokemon, I've never once used Machamp on a team, but this guy is an absolute beast and heaps of fun with No Guard. I intend to replace either Brick Break or Cross Chop with Dynamic Punch, since the 100% confusion rate is too good to pass up. I know using two Fighting moves is not ideal, but Dynamic Punch has paltry PP and I'd rather not be running back to the Pokemon centre every 5 turns. :p Stone Edge benefits greatly from No Guard too, and Rock's brilliant coverage, whereas Ice Punch is really only there to hit Garchomp and the like for heavier damage.

;435;
Inky ♂
Lonely Nature [41]
{Night Slash, Flamethrower, Poison Jab, Dig}
Skunk's were actually my favourite animal as a child and I always said I'd use the Stunky line when they were first unveiled. I never got round to it till this playthrough though. Nevertheless, this guy's both adorable and useful, with only a weakness to Ground and really handy resistances. Night Slash is basically his main STAB attack, since Poison has really poor coverage. Since Steel types resist/are immune to both his STAB options, Flamethrower is there to obliterate them. Dig is basically there due to lack of better options. I would've used Sucker Punch, but that requires breeding and I just couldn't be bothered in all honesty, especially when I'd already caught one with a decent nature.

;185;
Bella ♀
Adamant Nature [41]
{Rock Slide, Low Kick, Wood Hammer, Sucker Punch}
I'm not a huge fan of Sudowoodo, but this playthrough was all about using Pokemon I hadn't before, so here she is! She's actually quite the powerhouse, especially with the Adamant nature and great coverage. She's incredibly slow though and pretty much maimed by most special attacks. Sucker Punch helps to an extent though. Rock Slide is her best STAB option so far, but I intend to replace it with Stone Edge soon. Wood Hammer is fantastic with Rock Head, whereas Low Kick is unreliable but Fighting has great synergy with Rock-type attacks, and it's her only option at this moment. Hammer Arm comes soon though. Double Edge is another possibility, but that doesn't provide nearly as good coverage, and if I override Sucker Punch, it leaves her with no priority to rectify her dismal speed.

;421;
Penny ♀
Timid Nature [41]
{SolarBeam, Sunny Day, Weather Ball, HP Rock}
This thing was a pain in the arse to get - I had to breed her on HG so that she could get Weather Ball to compliment Sunny Day. The Hidden Power isn't particularly powerful, and Timid Nature leaves her a little lacking, but I didn't feel like breeding for another with a better nature + a decent Hidden Power, and she pulls her weight fairly well anyways. Her ability's pretty decent too in Double battles, but they're fairly rare unfortunately.

The man that blocked my path before let me pass this time so I went through to a beach route. I beat all the trainers and then I arrived in Sunyshore City. Flint appeared and told me to ignite a fire in Volkner, the gym leader of the city. I found him at the Lighthouse and me claimed if I wasn't good enough then he would go challenge the Elite 4, which is what I need to do! Before going to the gym I finally evolved Porygon2 into Porygon-Z. I went to the gym and tore through the trainers with Gliscor. When I made it to the end of the gym I challenged Volkner. Gallade started off against Jolteon and managed to win with 2 Psycho Cuts. He went with his Electivire next which managed to beat Gallade. I stupidly sent in Empoleon next and watched it use Thunderpunch and whittle away at my HP until it stopped at 6HP. Empoleon used Surf and knocked Electivire out! He sent out Raichu so I went to Vespiquen, only to have it get knocked out quickly. My next choice was Porygon-Z but it wasn't able to handle a critical hit Focus Blast from Raichu so I just let Gliscor win with Earthquake. Another Earthquake knocked out his Luxray and won me the final badge! When I tried to go to Victory Road Jasmine from Johto stopped me and gave me Waterfall. I saved after getting the HM.

I defeated all trainers before Sunyshore and met Flint who asked me to get Volkner battling again. We accepted and went for it. We met Volkner at the Tower and he accepted our battle. In the battle, Torterra defeated Electivire, Gastrodon defeated Jolteon, Luxray and Raichu, after surviving a Focus Blast. Easy :)
I stopped and saved there though, since it's late now

Well I decided to fire up Platinum again after playing White for a while.

I continued from where I left off who knows how many days/weeks ago, at Pastoria City. I went back North and talked to Cynthia and got the SecretPotion. I used it on the Psyducks and went even further north to the foggy area we all hate. Luckily my Crobat knows Defog so the fog wasn't much of a problem. Anyway, I captured a Swablu and kept battling trainers using the Vs. Seeker until it evolved into Altaria. Then I put it in the daycare for a while. While at the daycare, I saw that my Duskull was still in the daycare and it had grown 14 levels, so I took it out at level 33 and I'm now trying to evolve it into Dusclops.

Basically I'm just capturing a bunch of Pokemon and training them until they're on par with my other Pokemon. I'm going to have one big rotation team :D. I may even send some of these to White or HeartGold, don't know yet.

Well I beat Platinum again today, for the 4th time.

I OHKO'd most of the Elite Four.

Cynthia was a pain though. I made use of Mamoswine's Ice Shard. I'd use Ice Shard, mainly on Garchomp (which knocked it out in one shot with the LUCKIEST critical hit ever!), then Togekiss, then Roserade. I had to use a few revives but it all worked out in the end. Now I'm working on "seeing" the rest of the regional dex. I still need to see Azelf, Dialga, Palkia, and some random Pokemon that I somehow didn't see while playing through the game. Next I'll probably keep training a few of my main Pokemon and capture a couple national dex Pokemon and put them on my team. Then I may send some of those to HeartGold so I can beat Red when I get there.

Aight, so I just got the dex upgraded to the national dex. After that, I captured a Dunsparce, then tried to chain it. Broke the chain after 8 or 9 :/. Forgot to use repel.

Hey guys, it's been a long long time since I've last posted here.. mainly 'cause I stopped playing for quite a while, but I picked my old Diamond game up again and continued raising Pokemon to level 100. Today, I got my 6th level 100 pokemon, my Dragonite that was in my first batch of migrated Pokemon from Fire Red as a Dragonair. It has the moves Dragon Dance, Outrage, Fire Punch and Brick Break, decent enough for ingame. I decided I wanted to raise a Magcargo next, so I bred my female Magcargo with a freshly caught lv. 17 male Gastly to get an Egg containing a Slugma with Curse. I plan to annoy the hell out of things with it knowing Curse and Yawn, as well as the offensive moves Earth Power and Flamethrower. I know those are both special and Curse raises Attack, but it's more of a filler move anyway. Anyway, I now have a Slugma with Curse and Yawn, as well as two random level-up moves I plan on deleting when I get it to level 61/66. I did one run-through of the E4 with it holding the Exp. Share, and it got to level 32, so it's not far from evolving. I have to plan another new team member too, as my Hippowdon is currently level 95, so not long until I have to replace her, being the last member of my original storyline team (Empoleon, Staraptor, Luxray, Skuntank, Hippowdon and when I got the Nat. Dex, I added Dragonite). She always was a bit behind level-wise, haha. Anyway, I also caught and evolved some Pokemon, for dex data as well as more options for stuff to train. I obtained a Kangaskhan, Cacturne, Hariyama, Quagsire, Kingler and Weavile today. Lastly, I went underground and actually stroke lucky for once, this is what I got:

Heart Scale x3, Skull Fossil x3, Blue Shard x2,
Revive x2, Toxic Plate, Everstone, Max Revive, Fire Stone,
Rare Bone x2, Helix Fossil, Red Shard x2, Smooth Rock,
Thunderstone x2, Hard Stone x2, Claw Fossil x2

So yeah, pretty good, I always like getting Heart Scales :)

Quick update on my team to round things off:
Hippowdon Lv. 95 @ Earth Plate
- Strength
- Earthquake
- Crunch
- Ice Fang
Comments: A big fat powerhouse and something I can switch into ANYTHING. This thing isn't just a tank, Hippo is an army of tanks. Earth Plate + STAB + EQ = OHKO's across the board. Will be missed when it reaches level 100.

Lickilicky Lv. 82 @ nothing
- Power Whip
- Hammer Arm
- Gyro Ball
- Wring Out
Comments: This one surprised me. I thought, as a Normal type, I would have some trouble finding things to switch this thing into, but I was proven wrong, because Lickilicky is a great addition to my team. I love spamming Power Whip and/or Hammer Arm, and Wring Out is fun every once in a while. Gyro Ball is a filler, I never use it.

Ampharos Lv. 78 @ Quick Claw
- Thunder Wave
- Signal Beam
- Power Gem
- Thunder
Comments: When at a lower level, Ampharos was very fragile and disappointed me a little. But now, scoring kills here, there and basically everywhere, it's proven its worth. I was too lazy to buy a Thunderbolt TM for it, but Thunder usually pulls through for me when I need it to, and occasionally I have my Lapras' Rain Dance active to help out againt Double Team noobs. Signal Beam is another useless filler move I never use.

Seviper Lv. 68 @ nothing
- Poison Jab
- Night Slash
- Flamethrower
- Glare
Comments: Great attacker, but oh so fragile and therefore not the easiest Pokemon to train. Poison Jab is awesome, the other two attacking moves are very useful and Glare is there when I need it. I really do hope that this thing will be able to take more than 1-2 hits though, because right now it's definitely weaker than the Pokemon it replaced, my awesome Skuntank.

Lapras lv. 61 @ nothing
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Rain Dance
- Thunder
Comments: Yaay RD/Thunder combo and two STAB moves. Lapras is awesome, being a capable tank as well as a very decent attacker. A bit slow, but that doesn't matter when you take any kind of hit like a champ. Lapras is awesome, I love it.

Slugma Lv. 32 @ Exp. Share
- Yawn
- Curse
- Ancientpower
- Recover
Comments: I haven't actually used Slugma in battle yet, but what I do know is that it's slow and has no physical attack. I'm hoping that it will be awesome when it evolves and gets to the kinds of level where I can actually use it against the E4, which hopefully isn't too long.

Restarted Platinum. SR for an Adamant Turtwig, defeated Barry twice and the first two gym leaders. Turtwig evolved into a Grotle which evolved into a Torterra. That thing looks amazing and is amazing in battle, at least when it comes to ingame battles. It also has a diverse movepool which helps as well.

Well yesterday after training up my Onix and evolving Chimchar, I beat the gym without using Monferno at all! Screech is such a godsend. I then headed straight to Floarama town, and quickly caught my next pokemon in Valley Windworks: Buizel. I headed back to Oreburgh Mine, where I trained Buizel up to Lv12. I came back to the Windworks, and beat the Galactic Grunts and soon enough, Mars. I changed my DS Clock to Friday, and Drifloon appeared. I caught it easily, and it joined me.

Making my way to Eterna City, Cheryl joined me, and we trained a little. We got out, and she left me. I headed straight to Route 208 (?) and caught a Meditite. It also joined me after a quick capture. I began training it, and saved.

Next up: Eterna Gym, Exploring the Underground, and my final team member (hint: it has something to do with one of the two things previously mentioned).

Since last time, the main thing I did was train my team up a little more, getting Hippowdon (finally) to Lv. 100. I replaced it on my team with the Honchkrow I once got solely for dex data purposes. Also, I got some new Pokemon, namely Aqua Ring Wingull (the guy in Solaceon wanted to see a Wingull and I thought "If I'm getting a new Wingull, might as well breed an egg move onto it"), Bronzor, Unown, Vileplume, Ledian and Corphish. Lastly, I did more digging in the underground. I currently have 21 Fire Stones and 15 Everstones. I will update again when another team member reaches level 100, probably Lickilicky or Ampharos. This is my team right now:

Lickilicky lv. 86 @ Meadow Plate
Trait: Oblivious
- Power Whip
- Hammer Arm
- Gyro Ball
- Wring Out

Ampharos lv. 83 @ Magnet
Trait: Static
- Thunder Wave
- Signal Beam
- Power Gem
- Thunder

Seviper lv. 73 @ Toxic Plate
Trait: Shed Skin
- Poison Jab
- Night Slash
- Flamethrower
- Glare

Lapras lv. 69 @ NeverMeltIce
Trait: Water Absorb
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Rain Dance
- Thunder

Magcargo lv. 58 @ Quick Claw
Trait: Flame Body
- Yawn
- Rock Slide (to be Earth Power)
- Curse
- Lava Plume (to be Flamethrower)

Honchkrow lv. 33 @ Exp. Share
Trait: Super Luck
- Swagger (to be Nasty Plot)
- Pursuit (to be Night Slash)
- Psychic
- Fly

So I got the HM Waterfall from Jasmine and went up the sea route, battling all trainers along the way.
I finally got to the Victory Road, what a pain. So many paths :O Anyways I made it through and finally got to the E4. Before I battled Barry, damn that Snorlax! So annoying. I beat him though and took on the E4.

I will update as I battle them, since I am palying as Im writing

EDIT: Nevermind will do the E4 later, I just got pissed because Aaron got a lousy critical hit and killed my Torterra... :rolleyes:

So, a few days ago, I restarted my Diamond adventure and I've decided to, yet again, share it with you guys.

After watching the documentary about the Red Gyarados, that failed to appear by the way, I went downstairs, and then to my friend Barry. He decided that we'd search for such a Pokémon at our lake, so we went to the lake.
There were already some people at the lake though, but they left shortly after we arrived, forgetting their briefcase in the progress. Then, when Barry and I went to retrieve the case, we got attacked by some wild Starly!
Luckily we were able to fend them off, using the Pokémon that were in that case. Just as we wanted to exit the grass, Dawn came back, looking for the briefcase. She was shocked after she found that we'd used the Pokémon, but left nontheless. We left shortly after that.

Whilst enjoying dinner at home, I told my mum what happened that day. She told me to go to Sandgem town, where the professor's lab was, immediately, so I did.
Arriving in Sandgem town, I immediately spotted Dawn, who was apparently waiting for me. She more or less forced me to go inside, where I finally got the chance to talk to the professor and explain the situation we were in. Barry however had already explained the situation, so I was silenced before I could start speaking. But what I heard after that made that I was silent for some while longer. The professor was giving me the Pokémon I used, if only I wanted to help him with collecting data. I gladly accepted his offer, and left the lab soon after, carrying my newly acquired PokéDex and Chimchar with me.

The other day, I was cleaning my house with my sister and mom, and my sister's daughter was visiting with us, as well. She's 5 years old, and when I got out my Platinum and HG games to play, she had to play, too. She played my HG game and pounded on lv.2 Pidgeys and whatnot with my HM slaves, while I roamed the Sinnoh region with my fully-fledged Pt team OHKOing random encounters. I was on Rte. 214/Valor Lakefront when I got jumped by a shiny Staravia. No h4x0rz, no PokéRadar, just random luck. I caught it, levelled it up, and taught it some cool moves, specifically Brave Bird/Return/Close Combat/Roost. I really love the silvery-brown hue of his feathers, and the spike of pristine silver on the peak of his crest. I haven't nicknamed him yet, I can't think of anything cool.

He's my first shiny in Platinum, but my first 4th-gen shiny was a Shinx at the beginning of the game in Diamond. I named him Pharaoh and used him on my team, even though it had Rivalry and couldn't breed for Ice Fang without losing its shine (Masuda Method was unknown at that time). Lol, I woke my sister up shouting about my shiny Shinx, she had to yell at me from all the way down the hall to put a sock in it. xD

This time I started the E4 for real.

I beat Aaron. My Froslass defeated his first Pokemon, then his Scizor went on to sweep half of my team, until Ambipom got him. Then Heracross defeated Ambipom, but Drapion I think defeated him. Then Glalie lost to Vespiquen, but Drapion defeated Vespiquen. I had to use 2 revives to defeat Drapion afterwards, though.

Next time, Bertha, should be easy giving I have two Ice Types, one Grass, one Water and Brick Break.

EDIT: Just beat Bertha.
Torterra beat Whiscash and Hippowdon, Froslass beat Gliscor, Gastrodon beat Golem, Froslass beat Rhyperior

well i re started Platinum over and i chose Chimchar and after 2 days i was able to to evolve chimchar not once but twice into Infernape i also got my first 2 gym badges and skipped my 3d and 4th and went straight to my 5th badge. i also caught a gible, hatched a Togepy egg and spent nearly an hour finding a female Ralts and evolved them each ounce. i cant wait till i get to the great marsh to catch my next team member...but until then im training the rest of my team to level 30.

Where do i get the shiny stone to evolve my Togetic?

Current team:

I got my Lickilicky up to level 100 and it is the first Pokemon I've raised from hatching it out of its egg at level 1 all the way up to level 100. I have to say I can recommend it to anyone looking for a good team member. It has done absolutely awesome and has been very easy to train. While raising it, I caught/evolved a few more Pokemon: Beldum, Chansey (w/ Lucky Egg on a random encounter when looking for a Ponyta for the guy in Solaceon), Ponyta, Lombre -> Ludicolo and Magnemite --> Magnezone. Magnezone is also the replacement of my Lickilicky, as the next Pokemon to reach level 100 is my Ampharos. This is my team as it stands now:

Ampharos lv. 90 @ Lucky Egg
Jolly/Static
- Thunder Wave
- Signal Beam
- Power Gem
- Thunder

Seviper lv. 81 @ Toxic Plate
Naughty/Shed Skin
- Poison Jab
- Night Slash
- Flamethrower
- Glare

Lapras lv. 79 @ NeverMeltIce
Lax/Water Absorb
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Rain Dance
- Thunder

Magcargo lv. 72 @ Quick Claw
Hardy/Flame Body
- Yawn
- Earth Power
- Curse
- Flamethrower

Honchkrow lv. 59 @ Scope Lens
Gentle/Super Luck
- Nasty Plot
- Night Slash
- Psychic
- Fly

Magnezone lv. 31 @ Exp. Share
Hasty/Magnet Pull
- Magnet Bomb (to be Mirror Shot)
- Thunder Wave
- Spark (to be Discharge)
- Mirror Coat

^Oh, lucky you! Chansey's only have a 5% chance of holding a Lucky Egg!
As for me, I planned on soft-resetting for a shiny Drifloon (since it's Friday) today. What I'm doing right now, is leveling up a Magneton, so it can become a Magnezone. I also tried chaining for a shiny Cleffa, but failed majorly. (I suck at chaining >.>) Also, I was planted some berries, as well as battling the Elite Four again, to earn money and Exp. :P

I went through Solaceon Ruins where Buizel evolved into Floatzel and learned Crunch.Then I went(with great difficulty because of not having my HM slave for Defog) through the Lost Tower.I then went to and defeated all the trainers on Route 210 and in the Cafe Cabin.I found out that the Psyduck there wouldn't let me pass.So i went to Route 215 defeating all the trainers and arrived in Veilstone City and saved the game.

In Veilstone City,I checked the various places.Then I went to the Gym and defeated all the trainers.I healed my Pokemon and challenged Maylene but she was very tough and overlevelled compared to my team.Although her Meditite was easily taken out,her Lucario made up for it by almost sweeping my team only losing to Grotle's Razor Leaf.But Grotle had already taken too much damage and was easily defeated by Machoke.So,I decided to train my team a little.I went to Route 214 and there I caught my last team member,a Male Houndour Lv.22.I defeated all the trainers but Houndour is definitely quite underlevelled compared to my other five team members.I decided to train it in the Valor Lakefront Grass which had Pokemon upto Lv.28.Though it was difficult for it to take down these Pokemon,it levelled up and evolved at Lv.24.It levelled up two more levels before I saved.

I went through Route 213 defeating the trainers there and arrived in Pastoria City.I went through all the parts of the city before challenging the gym.The Move relearner taught Houndoom Thunder Fang which will be useful for the gym.When I was about to enter the Gym,Barry stopped me for a battle.I defeated him easily.Floatzel defeated his Staravia with some Aqua Jet and Water Gun but also took some damage from its Wing Attack.Floatzel did little damaged to Roselia with Crunch and was defeated by Roselia's Mega Drain.Grotle defeated Roselia with two Bite attacks and took little damage from Magical Leaf.His Monferno's Flame Wheel not only damaged me greatly but also burned me.Grotle was then defeated by Mach Punch.My Staravia defeated Monferno with two Aerial Ace but took heavy damage from Flame Wheel.Staravia was defeated by Buizel's Aqua Jet.Bronzor confused Buizel with Confuse Ray and defeated it with few Extrasensory coupled with the confusion damage.I went in the Gym and defeated all the Gym trainers.In the process,Houndoom learned Fire Fang.I then went to Pokemon Center.I challenged Crasher Wake and defeated him though he was difficult.Gyarados's Waterfall damaged Luxray quite a bit but Luxray's Spark did much more damage.Crasher Wake healed Gyarados with Hyper Potion but this time Spark defeated Gyarados in one hit.Luxray did little damage to Quagsire with Bite and was defeated by Mud Shot.My Floatzel's Aqua Jet and Crunch attacks didn't do much damage to his bulky Quagsire and when its HP got low,he healed him with Hyper Potion.Floatzel was finally defeated by a combination of Rock Tomb and Mud Shot.Grotle defeated Quagsire with one Razor Leaf but its Yawn made Grotle drowsy.His Floatzel's Ice Fang did heavy damage to Grotle but Grotle's Razor Leaf didn't do as much damage and it fell asleep.I used Full Heal to wake it up but Floatzel's Crunch and Aqua Jet defeated him.Staravia was badly damaged by Floatzel's Brine and though its Return did quite some damage,Floatzel's Sitrus Berry restored his health.Staravia was finished off by Floatzel's Aqua Jet.Floatzel's Brine damaged Bronzor.Bronzor used Confuse Ray to confuse Floatzel.Bronzor damaged it with a few Extrasensory but his Brine defeated it.Houndoom survived Floatzel's Brine and defeated it with Thunder Fang.In this way,I won the Fen Badge.Barry came telling about Team Galactic's plan.I saved the game.

Today,a lot of things happened.I went after the galactic grunt and defeated him easily.I met Cynthia who gave me the SecretPotion.Then,I defeated all the trainers on Route 212.During the battles,Grotle,Bronzor and Staravia all evolved which means now my team is fully evolved.Grotle learned Leech Seed and Earthquake.Since I had used my lone Heart Scale to reteach Houndoom Thunder Fang earlier,I went all the way back to Solaceon Town and saved the game there.From the newspaper company guy who gives you Heart Scale and Pokeballs for showing him a Pokemon,I was able to get a Heart Scale and some Dusk Balls.First he asked for Glameow(I am playing Platinum you fool how can I get Glameow),so i resetted.Then,he asked for Espeon(i am not going through all the trouble of raising the friendship and all just to get the reward).The third time I got lucky.He asked me to show him a Porygon.I went back To Veilstone and got myself a Porygon.I showed him and got the Heart Scale and went to Pastoria to reteach Torterra Wood Hammer.Staravia learned Close Combat on evolving.I then went Underground with my Explorers Kit and searched for about 1 hour for the various Shards.Soon,I got enough of the required Shards.I went to the Move Tutor on Route 212 and taught Floatzel Ice Punch and Bronzong Zen Headbutt.I am currently in Pastoria looking for my second HM Slave,a Tropius in the Great Marsh.

I checked the places of interest in Celestic Town and came to know the presence of Team Galactic.Cyrus was easily defeated.He started with Sneasel while I sent out Houndoom.Sneasel did some damage with slash while Houndoom did heavy damage with Fire Fang.Cyrus used Hyper Potion to heal Sneasel while Houndoom used Fire Fang to do heavy damage again.Sneasel used Slash and Houndoom used Fire Fang but it missed.Houndoom was defeated with Quick Attack.I sent out Staraptor.Staraptor defeated it with Return.He sent out Golbat.Staraptor's Return and Golbat's Air Cutter both did some damage to each other.Staraptor finished it off with one more Return.He sent out Murkrow.Staraptor's Return did heavy damage to Murkrow but Murkrow's Sitrus Berry healed it.It used Drill Peck to heavily damage Staraptor.Staraptor finished it off with Return.Cynthia's Grandmother gave me HM Surf which I taught to my Floatzel(which I'll later replace for Waterfall and after the Pokemon League for Aqua Tail).I also trained my HM Slave Bidoof so that it evolved into Bibarel and can use Surf.I also taught it Surf because I'll need him anyway after the eight badge.

I flew to Jublife City.I then went through Route 218 defeating all the trainers and reached Canalave City.I went round the city and my rival Barry suddenly popped up and challenged me to a battle.He was easily defeated.He started with his Staraptor while I sent out my Torterra.Staraptor used Double Team to raise its evasion and Torterra's Leech Seed missed.He used Double Team again but this time Leech Seed hit and his HP started to drain.It used Double Team again while Torterra's Bite did little damage.It defeated Torterra with a single Aerial Ace.I sent out Bronzong.Staraptor's Take Down didn't do much damage while Bronzong's Zen Headbutt did some damage along with Leech Seed.It used Take Down again and fainted due to recoil.He sent out Infernape.It did some damage with Brick Break and was knocked out Zen Headbutt.He sent out Heracross.Heracross defeated Bronzong with Brick Break.I sent out Houndoom.Houndoom's Fire Fang did heavy damage to Heracross but it defeated Houndoom with Brick Break.I sent out my Staraptor.It defeated Heracross with Aerial Ace.He sent out his Floatzel.It did some damage with Swift but took heavy damage from Staraptor's Return.It did some more damage with Swift but was defeated by another Return.He sent out Roserade.Staraptor OHKO'ed it with one Aerial Ace.Then I explored the rest of the city and saved the game.In my next update,I will take on the Iron Island before going to the gym.

EDIT:Went to Oreburgh Gate to get TM Brick Break and also battled a trainer there.Taught Brick Break to Floatzel.In Canalave City,I surfed to find the TM U-Turn which I taught to Staraptor.Also realised that Fuego Ironworks and the route below Veilstone are now accesible due to Surf so I will visit them as well.

I resumed training this Vulpix I received via trade that knows Hypnosis and Energy Ball. It's only level 25 right now and I'm trying to level it up along with the rest of my team so I can rematch the Elite Four.

In Canalave City,I came to know about explosion at Lake Valor.I went there and found Team Galactic.I defeated all the grunts,healed and challenged Saturn and won quite easily.He started with Golbat while I sent out Houndoom.Houndoom did some damage with Thunder Fang while Golbat's Air Cutter did comparatively less damage.Houndoom's Thunder Fang did some more damage while Golbat used Toxic to poison Houndoom.Houndoom was hurt by Poison.Houndoom defeated Golbat with another Thunder Fang.It was hurt by Poison.Saturn sent out Toxicroak.Houndoom did heavy damage with Fire Fang.Toxicroak's Sitrus Berry restored some of its HP and it defeated Houndoom with Poison Jab.I sent out Staraptor.Staraptor defeated Toxicroak with Aerial Ace.Saturn sent out Bronzor.Staraptor's Close Combat did some damage but its Defense and Sp.Defense fell.Bronzor used Iron Defense to raise its defense sharply.Staraptor's Close Combat did little damage while Bronzor's Rock Tomb did some damage and lowered Staraptor's speed.Staraptor knocked out Bronzor with U-Turn.I then went to Lake Verity and battled the grunts there.After healing at my house,I challenged Mars and defeated her.She started with Golbat and I sent out Luxray.Golbat used Supersonic to confuse Luxray but Luxray's Spark did heavy damage and paralyzed Golbat.Luxray defeated Golbat with another Spark.Mars sent out Bronzor.Luxray's Spark did some damage while Bronzor's Extrasensory did little damage.Luxray's Spark did some more damage and paralyzed Bronzor.Bronzor's Extrasensory did little damage again.Luxray defeated Bronzor with another Spark.Mars sent out Purugly.Purugly's Fake Out did some damage and flinched Luxray.Purugly defeated Luxray with Slash.I sent out Floatzel.Floatzel's Brick Break did some damage.Purugly's Sitrus Berry restored some of its health and it did heavy damage with Slash.Floatzel's Brick Break did some more damage but it was defeated by Purugly's Faint Attack.I sent out Torterra.Torterra took some damage from Slash but defeated Purugly with Earthquake.Since I was in Sandgem Town,I decided to explore the post-Surf routes 219,220 and 221.I defeated all the trainers there.Since the Pal Park was closed,I went back to Sandgem Town and saved the game.

I went through Mt.Coronet to reach Route 216.I could only take four members of my team due to requiring my two HM Slaves there.I defeated all the trainers there.Then I went to Route 217 and defeated all the trainers there as well.At Acuity Lakefront,i saw Barry who told me about requiring the Snowpoint Gym Badge to use Rock Climb.I arrived in Snowpoint City and went around exploring the city and found literally nothing except the Snowpoint Temple(which can only be accessed after defeating the Elite 4) and the Gym.I withdrew my other two team members.Then I went to the gym and defeated all the trainers,healed and challenged Candice.She was hard and the battle was full of HAX but I managed to win.She started with Sneasel and I sent out Houndoom.Sneasel's Slash did some damage and it took heavy damage from Houndoom's Fire Fang.Candice used Hyper Potion to restore Sneasel's HP.Houndoom's Fire Fang did heavy damage again.Sneasel defeated Houndoom with Slash Critical Hit.I sent out Staraptor.Sneasel did some damage with Ice Shard but it was defeated by Staraptor's Return.Candice sent out Abomasnow whose Snow Warning whipped up a Hailstorm.Staraptor did heavy damage with Aerial Ace but was defeated by Abomasnow's Avalanche.I sent out Luxray.Luxray knocked out Abomasnow with Iron Tail.Candice sent out Piloswine while Luxray was buffeted by Hail.Luxray OHKO'ed Piloswine with Iron Tail.Candice sent out Froslass while Luxray was buffeted by Hail.Froslass used Double Team to raise its evasiveness.Luxray's Iron Tail missed and it is buffeted by Hail.Froslass uses Double Team again.Luxray's Crunch missed and it is buffeted by Hail.Froslass uses Double Team again.Luxray's Crunch missed and it is buffeted by Hail.Froslass used Blizzard which did heavy damage and froze Luxray.Luxray is buffeted by Hail.I used Ice Heal to thaw out Luxray hoping for Blizzard to miss but it didn't happen.Luxray was defeated by Blizzard.I sent out Floatzel.Floatzel's Crunch did heavy damage.Froslass uses Double Team again.Floatzel is buffeted by Hail.Floatzel knocked out Froslass with Crunch.I won the Icicle Badge and got TM Avalanche.I saved the game.

Anyway, here is how the gym went. I proceeded to have trouble with every single trainer in the gym, while finally knocking out Candice with ease. Plupole beat Piloswine, Bellchime beat Sneasel, we had trouble on Abomasnow but Drifty proceeded to beat it, Froslass was easily picked out by Shixray.

Yesterday,I played Platinum but forgot to post.I went through Mt.Coronet defeating countless Team Galactic grunts.I reached Spear Pillar and with Barry fought Mars and Jupiter.They were tough because I only had four team members with me(I needed 2 HM Slaves for the purpose).But I managed to defeated them.My rival was a good Punching bag as they kept hitting his Pokemon.Then Barry healed my team.Cyrus tried to control Dialga and Palkia with the Red Chain and Uxie,Mesprit and Azelf couldn't stop it.Then came Giratina and took Cyrus to Distortion World.That place is just terribly hard.Despite using Psypokes Walkthrough,I got lost.But I managed to find my way.I found Cyrus who challenged me to a battle.He easily defeated me because I had an underlevelled team of only four members.So,now I have to train my Pokemon some more and carefully chose which four to take there.

Restarting my Diamond version once more, I went with Chimchar as my starter this time. I decided to alter my team, though, this time making it all up as I went along. In the fight with the Starly, for example, I decided to use Starly on my team. As soon as I finished up at Sandgem town, I bought 5 Pokeballs and ran down to Route 201. A few encounters later, I had my Starly: level 3. Training Cojiro (Chimchar) and Raptor (Starly) each to level 6 (with a bit of fainting on Raptor's half), Wolfpaw- my trainer- continued past Sandgem Town onto the next route. After an ever-so-pointless tutorial as to how to catch Pokemon (*pointing to Raptor*), I carried on. By the time I finally reached Jubilife, both Cojiro and Raptor were level 8. Running to Jubilife, I went to the Pokemon Center, and then to the Trainer's School to fight the 2 Abras and get the TM for Hidden Power. I aced them both, and carried on up to get the Poketch (taking less time than in my last playthrough). Straight afterwards, I ignored the usual route to Oreburgh, and went straight up. I ignored the trainers and went into the grass for my next Pokemon- Budew. Finding and catching it easily, I trained my newest member of my team, Misao, to level 9, as well as Cojiro and Raptor. After, I went to fight my rival, Demoneb. Fighting Raptor against his own Starly, my level-9 bird took it out easily with Wing Attack. I then sent out Misao against his Piplup, and managed to take it down with two Absorbs.

Nothing much happened on the route to Oreburgh. Items collected, Pokemon trained, Abra considered to being caught and used, as Cojiro had recently learned Taunt, disabling its Teleport. However, I continued to the city, training my Pokemon to level 11. I continued downwards to the mines. Trained. Found Roark. Trained some more. I also caught an Onix, but promptly decided that Cranidos was better, so now Sarekno is an HM Slave. At last, at level 13, my Pokemon were ready to go. Moving Misao to the front of my party, I went forth to challenge the Gym. It was too simple- Misao absolutely swept the floor with my opponents with its Absorb and Mega Drain. I was even screaming out "Die!" constantly in my head. At Roark, it started at level 14- at the end, it hit level 16, making Misao the strongest member of my team.

I then carried on back to Jubilife, and defeated the Team Galactic agents easily with Cojiro, who evolved into Monferno after that fight. Carrying on upwards to the Route where I caught Misao, I went past the area where Rock Smash was required, and carried onto the Valley Windworks, and defeated the Team Galactic member outside and in the Meadow. I trained Cojiro and evolved Raptor, then quit.

Wolfpaw's team so far:
;391; Cojiro, level 16
;397; Raptor, level 14
;406; Misao, level 16

Hello again everybody! Last time I posted here (2 months ago O.o) I had beaten Bertha from the E4... Well, today I decided to play again, and I battled Flint.
Gastrodon VS Houndoom - Poor Gastrodon, my water type lost :o
Drapion VS Houndoom - Drapion all the way mofo's!
Froslass VS Infernape - Went for an Attract strategy. Unfortunately the ape hit me with a fatal Flare Blitz on the second turn -.-

Ambipom VS Flareon - Overheat killed me
Drapion VS Flareon - Rock Slide all the way! Drapion leveled up to level 50.
Drapion VS Magmortar - Rock slide did basically nothing cuz of that stupid Sitrus Berry, and Magmortar killed Drapion --' Now Im left with a almost-dead turtle and an ice hockey mask...
Torterra VS Magmortar - Revived Drapion, RIP Torterra
Glalie VS Magmortar - Fully restored Drapion, RIP Glalie
Drapion VS Magmortar - A level 50 Drapion VS A level 57 Magmortar. Used my last Rock Slide on the monster, he used Flamethrower. Survived with 13 HP, but guess what? NO PP ON ROCK SLIDE :O Went for crunch... R[GNPFEAOFPNERFAIERFNIWEB **** YOU FLINT U AND UR STUPID FULL RESTORES. Well Crunch did alright damage and lowered that monster's defenses, but he beat me after reviving Froslass.
Froslass VS Magmortar - This is eitehr a one shot or death. Went for Attract... Magmortar failed his attack!! :) Revived Drapion, and Magmortar... didnt miss his attack again wtf so unlucky!
Drapion VS Magmortar - Well since I did lower his defenses... revived Froslass again O.o
Froslass VS Magmortar - Attract c'mon mate! Magmortar... O.O

After a failed attempt, I restarted my game for another try. This time, I put Drapion in the first slot.

Drapion VS Magmortar - I've had enough of your **** man. 2 Rock Slide's almost killed it, but he's a little ***** and didn't get flinched.
Ambipom VS Magmortar - Return.... killed that fugly mofo!!
Ambipom VS Rapidash - Used return, took half of his HP and he used... I have no idea actually wasn't paying attention, all I know is it didn't do any damage. Finished it off with Return.

Woah, Flint was harder than expected, but my Pokemon did amazing!
Star: Debatable between Ambipom and Drapion, as Ambipom got his star plus his last but Drapion 2HKO'd two Pokemon without taking damage.

As I was looking through my different games to check the pokemon I caught, I noticed that I had restarted my Diamond game, so I decided to start playing again. Decided to pick Piplup as my starter, and turns out I got a female, my first ever female starter :)

As I went forward, I caught a Starly to use as a future Fly poke, and a Shinx for my electric type until I get a Pikachu. Got to Jubilife City, collected the coupons for the Poketch, met Tyson (my rival) at the trainer school to give him his package, which landed me with a Town Map, then headed North to catch a Budew for my next team member, then headed towards Oreburgh City.

Went to the mine to get Roark to go back to his gym so I could challenge him. As I was there, I caught myself an Onix to add to my team, and decided to mix things up and add a Zubat to my team for the first time ever. Went in to the different houses to collect items, and then saved for the night before challenging Roark.

Current team:

Onix Lv 14
Starly Lv 13
Shinx Lv 13
Budew Lv 13
Zubat Lv 14
Piplup Lv 14

Today I picked up Platinum after more than a month.To have a chance of winning against Cyrus,I trained all my team to Lv.49 through Vs Seeker and Pokemon Centre Battles.In the training process,three of my Pokemon learned important moves for their movesets:Torterra learned Crunch,Houndoom learned Flamethrower and Staraptor learned Brave Bird.I also gave all my Pokemon held items in order to increase their efficiency.I bought a lot of Ultra Balls for the elusive Giratina.I went back to Distortion World and challenged Cyrus to a battle again and came up victorius.

Vs Cyrus
-He started with his Houndoom and I sent out Bronzong.
-Houndoom used Will-O-Wisp to burn Bronzong while Bronzong's Earthquake did high damage.Bronzong was hurt by its burn.
-I used a Rawst Berry to cure Bronzong's burn while Houndoom's Flamethrower did some damage.
-Houndoom's Will-O-Wisp missed and it was defeated by Bronzong's Earthquake.Cyrus sent out Honchkrow.
-Honchkrow's Night Slash and Bronzong's Gyro Ball did some damage to each other.
-Honchkrow knocked out Bronzong with Drill Peck.I sent out my Houndoom.
-Houndoom's Thunder Fang did some damage while Honchkrow's Drill Peck did heavy damage.
-Cyrus used Full Restore to heal Honchkrow while Houndoom's Thunder Fang did some damage.
-Houndoom defeated Honchkrow with another Thunder Fang.Cyrus sent out Gyarados.
-Houndoom's Thunder Fang did high damage but it was defeated by Gyarados's Waterfall.I sent out Staraptor.
-Staraptor knocked out Gyarados with Return.Cyrus sent out Weavile.
-Weavile's Fake Out did little damage and made Staraptor flinch.
-Weavile's Ice Punch did massive damage but it was defeated by Staraptor's Close Combat(though its Defense and Sp.Defense fell).Staraptor's Shell Bell healed it a little.Cyrus sent out Crobat.
-Crobat knocked out Staraptor with Air Slash.I sent out Luxray.
-Crobat used Confuse Ray to confuse Luxray but it was defeated by Luxray's Spark.

Cyrus couldn't believe that he lost and his plans will not be successful.Anyways,Cynthia told me to either catch or defeat Giratina.I saved before battling Giratina.It was difficult to catch.I had to Soft-reset 4 times in order to catch it.Finally,I caught it with an Ultra Ball,though it has a bad nature(Naive i.e. +Speed,-Sp.Defense).I exited out of the Distortion World and reached Sendoff Spring and Spring Path.I flew back to Sandgem Town and met Prof.Rowan who saw my Pokedex and told me to complete my badge quest.He also told that the Lake Guardians had returned to their respective lakes.I went through Route 222 and arrived in Sunyshore City.I explored Sunyshore City and met Flint of the Elite 4 and found Volkner at Vista Lighthouse.He returned to the gym.I went to the gym and defeated all the gym trainers.After healing I challenged Volkner to a battle and won.

Vs Volkner
-He started with Jolteon and I sent out Houndoom.
-Jolteon's Charge Beam did high damage and raised Jolteon's Sp.Attack while Houndoom's Flamethrower also did high damage.
-Jolteon defeated Houndoom with another Charge Beam which also raised Jolteon's Sp.Attack.I sent out Staraptor.
-Staraptor defeated Jolteon with Return.Volkner sent out Raichu.
-Staraptor OHKO'ed Raichu with Return.Volkner sent out his Luxray.
-Staraptor's Return did high damage while Luxray's Thunder Fang did high damage and paralyzed Staraptor.
-Luxray's Ice Fang did some damage but it was defeated Staraptor's Return.Volkner sent out Electivire.
-Electivire knocked out Staraptor with Quick Attack.I sent out my Luxray.
-Electivire's Fire Punch did some damage while Luxray's Crunch did high damage.Electivire's Sitrus Berry restored some of its HP.
-Electivire's Fire Punch and Luxray's Crunch did some damage to each other.
-Electivire defeated Luxray with Giga Impact.I sent out Floatzel.
-Floatzel knocked out Electivire with Surf.

And I won my eighth and final badge,The Beacon Badge and also got TM Charge Beam but more than that I gave Volkner an interesting battle(and made him realise that he cannot match the Elite 4).I went outside and met Barry who told me to go to Pokemon League.Jasmine,the Olivine Gym Leader was there and she gave me HM Waterfall for me to traverse the harsh Victory Road.I flew to Canalave City and made Floatzel forget Surf to make way for Waterfall(as Floatzel's Attack is better than its Sp.Attack).I saved the game.

Several things happened since yesterday. Pop Rocks was my first death so I had to catch another geodude which I named Rocky Road. I also caught a psyduck which I named Jello. Not using him. I beat Roark with no deaths which was cool. I only used Orzo my monferno and switched to Mayo my shinx to lower his cranido's attack. Now I'm in Floraroma town.

I played Platinum today and did a few stuff.First,I went through Route 223 defeating all the trainers and arrived at Victory Road.After healing at the Pokemon Centre,I went inside Victory Road and defeated all the trainers and got all the items apart from Post-National Pokedex ones.I got two important TMs which I taught to my team members: Dark Pulse to Houndoom and Stone Edge to Torterra.I arrived at the Pokemon League and healed my team.As I was about to enter the first room,I got challenged by Barry who I easily defeated.

Vs Barry
-He started with his Staraptor and I sent out Houndoom.
-Houndoom's Thunder Fang did some damage but it was defeated by Staraptor's Close Combat(though its Defense and Sp.Defense fell).I sent out my own Staraptor.
-My Staraptor defeated Barry's Staraptor with Return.Barry sent out his Floatzel.
-Staraptor's Return did massive damage while Floatzel's Ice Fang also did some damage.
-Staraptor knocked out Floatzel with another Return.Barry sent out Heracross.
-Staraptor OHKO'ed Heracross with Brave Bird but it took some recoil.Staraptor's Shell Bell healed it a little.Barry sent out Infernape.
-Staraptor OHKO'ed Infernape as well with Brave Bird but it took some recoil again.Staraptor's Shell Bell healed it a little.Barry sent out Snorlax.
-Staraptor's Close Combat did heavy damage but reduced Staraptor's Defense and Sp.Defense.Staraptor's Shell Bell healed it a little but it was defeated by Snorlax's Crunch.I sent out Luxray.
-Luxray knocked out Snorlax with Spark.Barry sent out Roserade.
-Luxray's Crunch did heavy damage while Roserade's GrassWhistle missed.
-Luxray knocked out Roserade with another Crunch.

I healed my team and saved the game.

Since I posted last time I lost several members, including Tacos who evolved into crobat DX I lost him in my horrible rival battle in Pastoria city, Salmon my staravia and Ketchup, my luxio lost in Hearthome I believe, and my ever fathful monferno, Orzo got murdered in that stupid double battle with a raichu and gyarados in between Solaceon and Celestic town. Since that happened I needed another pokemon to battle Wake so I decided to use my roselia, Spaghetti. He's been good so far. I also caught a pikachu in the trophy garden so I'm using her as well. I named her Toffee. Since Orzo passed I have to use a fire type so I'm currently raising up Jalapeno, my ponyta's levels. Also caught a lickytung and am using her. Current team:

Finishing up my Diamond - I had left it at eight badges but hadn't gone through Victory Road, so I did that the other day and fought Wally at the League entrance, and now I'm finalizing my team. I've been leveling and training a Skorupi - I've never managed to stick with one long enough to evolve a Drapion before, and I want to give one a try. Slow going. I spent a while last night running around Route 209 hunting for a Chansey with a Lucky Egg, but didn't find one, though I've now got six Oval Stones (six more than I'll ever need), and I got to do a fair bit of EV training with the Skorupi against Bibarels and Staravias. I'll probably do some more of that in a bit, but first - I've been flying around a route of honey trees and just caught a Heracross this morning. I saved in front of the tree, so had the chance to reset for a good one, but got tired of that after a couple of dozen and when I finally got a Jolly female, I kept it. She doesn't have much for stats, but she's Jolly and a female, so I'm breeding now, which I find much less tedious than catching in the wild. No telling how many eggs it'll take to get one I really want though, and it's a bit slow without an incubator (no Magma Armor or Flame Body in the fourth gen before the National Dex). Haven't got any good ones yet, but I've only hatched five eggs so far, so it could be a while. Then I can get back to hunting for a Lucky Egg and EV training Skorupi. And I've got a bunch of other things that need to be EV trained too.

So I lost several very good members since last time I posted. I lost Jalapeno my ponyta and Spaghetti my roselia DX They were so great but the most dissapointing one was loosing Pancakes, my gliscor against Byron's extremely stupid bastiodon. It was so enbarrasing D= It got Pancakes down to yellow hp and I almost killed it with dig but then it healed and killed him with metal burst,. I thought those things were really weak. So I decided to use Nachos, my tentacool and trained him up. I also caught a new zubat and ponyta since in my challenge I can catch one more pokemon on a route if a pokemon from that same route falls. I named the ponyta Praline and the zubat Cashew. Then I took out Mars and went north. I caught a snover and named him Slurpee. I was going to use him but he takes way to long to lv up. I got to Snowpoint and beat all of the trainers in the gym. In the process Nachos died to a stupid sneasel D= He was so great. So now I'm leveling up Dumpling, my quagsire that i caught in the great marsh. Current team:

Pshew. Finally hatched a good Heracross - Jolly, with something in the high 20s for HP and Atk, 31 for Spd and something at least in the mid-teens for both defenses. By that point, I was sick of Heracross, so I just parked it in my PC next to my level 1 Riolu that I'm going to get around to training and leveling sometime, and went back to EV training Skorupi (now Drapion) and hunting for a Lucky Egg. Just about done with the EV training and I still haven't gotten a Lucky Egg off of a Chansey, so since Drapion has 252 Atk now, I moved up to the high grass on Route 210, which is mostly Ponyta (1 Spd) instead of mostly Bibarel (2 Atk), since there are Chanseys there too (at the same rate - 5%). I've got about 30 more speeds to pick up and I'll be done, and will hopefully have gotten a Lucky Egg by then. If not though, I've got other pokemon who need Atk training, so I guess I can just keep going with one of them on 209, which really isn't that bad a training spot anyway.

Scared up another Heracross in a honey tree earlier, but I just fainted it, since I finally got the one I want. Spent a while on another tree catching a good female Combee. I evolved one Modest Vespiquen a while back, since they get Power Gem and Gust, so I figured Sp Atk was the way to go, but I found that it's underpowered that way and there's really nothing else to give it after that. It's not as if it's that powerful anyway, but I sort of like it, so when I saw a Combee in one of my trees, I decided to catch another one and build it as a staller/tank. I got a neutral (Bashful, IIRC) with nice, high, even stats, in part because I'm still not quite sure what its EV spread is going to be yet. I'm sort of tempted to teach it its signature set - Attack Order, Defend Order and Heal Order, plus something else sort of stally - probably Toxic. It's hardly a competitive set, but it seems like it would be workable, and it's not as if I'm going to use her competitively anyway.

And that's about that for now...

I surfed north of Sunshore City and battled the swimmers until I reached the Waterfall. With Empoleon's help I climbed the waterfall and entered into Victory Road. The giant cave proved incredibly helpful in leveling up my team but there were a few situations which seemed a little ridiculous, like an Ambipom taking out 3 of my Pokemon. I eventually made it out after what felt like a 4 month trek and arrived at the Pokemon League. Before I could actually challenge the Elite 4 I was stopped by my rival who wanted to battle. Porygon-Z started off against Staraptor and won with Thunderbolt. He sent out Heracross but Vespiquen's Gust took it out. Next was Rapidash vs Empoleon and all it took was one Surf. Vespiquen was back out against his Torterra and managed to pull off a win with Attack Order. Gallade took out his Snorlax with Drain Punch and lastly Porygon-Z beat his Floatzel with Thunderbolt. My rival ran off while I purchased some healing items to take on the Elite 4.

I played the game after some time and did some stuff.First of all,I went to Lake Acuity and caught Uxie in an Ultra Ball.It has Naughty nature.Then I went to Lake Valor and caught Azelf in a Quick Ball.It has Relaxed nature.Then I went to Lake Verity to catch Mesprit but it fled.Prof.Rowan came and asked me to find it.After some encounters where I managed to weaken it and paralyze it,I caught it in a Quick Ball.It has Lonely nature.With the three Pixies caught,I decided to challenge the Pokemon League.I managed to defeat the Elite 4 though with some difficulty,but Cynthia proved to be a very hard challenge and easily defeated my team while I could only kill 2 of her Pokemon.I will have to train my team more which means I'm back to training.I saved the game.

I used my Rare Candies up and then entered into the first room. Aaron was my first opponent and he sent out his Yanmega against my Porygon-Z. Luckily Download boosted Sp Atk and I was able to knock it out with one Thunderbolt. He used Heracross next so I used a Psybeam and almost knocked it out. Close Combat managed to take out Porygon-Z. I used Vespiquen next and used Gust until Heracross fainted. I sent out Weavile against his Vespiquen and completely forgot that Weavile was weak to Vespiquen, but Ice Shard got a critical hit to give me the win. Empoleon vs Scizor started with Empoleon using Surf and ended with Empoleon using another Surf. Gliscor was up against his Drapion and took a lot of damage from the Ice Fang so I swapped to Gallade and won the battle with Close Combat.

Gallade went up against Bertha's Whiscash to start the second battle and used Leaf Blade and knocked it out! Next was her Gliscor against my Empoleon. Empoleon survived and Earthquake and retaliated with an Ice Beam. Empoleon stayed out against her Hippowdon and used Surf and knocked it out. Surf also knocked out Golem and Rhyperior in one shot as well. Quick and easy, like everything in life should be...

Flint vs Drummerdude. The third battle. I sent out Gliscor against his Houndoom and surprisingly attacked first and won with Earthquake. He switched to Magmortar next so I attacked with another Earthquake and knocked it out. His third Pokemon was Infernape. It used Flare Blitz which didn't do a whole lot. Earthquake was used again and....Infernape lives??? Flint healed it so I used another Earthquake and this time beat it. Flareon + Earthquake = Dead Flareon. His last Pokemon was a Rapidash which used Sunny Day for some reason but I used Earthquake and won! 3 down, 2 to go!!!

I have a tendence to have big pauses in between battles.
Last time we beat Flint on our second attempt, and now it was Lucian's turn. I wasn't very confident since nobody in my team was great against it. Revives and Potions have carried us until here, so let's beat Lucian.
OK, against Mr Mime I sent in Scorpio aka Drapion. He used Reflect and I went with Crunch. Did a bit more than half, and he then went for Thunderbolt which did less than half. I then finished it off with Crunch. He sent in Bronzong so I went for Leafwiggy, aka Torterra. Five levels difference? It's war. Well I am quite dumb as he has the levitate ability -.- Started spamming Giga Drain, which would do nothing. Before Leafwiggy went down I also healed up Drapion, just in case. This thing has so many resistances, it's not even funny. He kept going for Psychic and Reflect also went off. I then sent in Flirt aka Gastrodon, for some STAB. He's faster than me? Ok, I used Surf. Even with stab and normal damage it did nothing -_- Flirt went down. I wonder why I chose these Pokemon. I really do. I called in Scorpio and used Rock Slide to try to flinch it. Nope, nothing and he used Earthquake. Scorpio is almost down. I used X Scissor which did nothing and Scorpio went down ;_; In came Santas Bud aka Froslass and I used Thunder. Finally killed it with a damn CRIT! :D Then came in Espeon, and Handy aka Ambipom. He's the only one that might be able to knock Espeon out. Faster, I used Shadow Claw which did more than half, and he used Psychic. Lived with 17 hp, awesome. Oh, he used Quick Attack? Cool. In came Santa's Bud again with Ice Fang defeating Espeon. He sends in Gallade and I send in Glalie as a riot shield. I revived Ambipom and he killed Glalie with Stone Edge. I sent in Ambipom and used Shadow Claw doing just a bit less than half, while he failed Stone Edge. Used Shadow Claw again killing it, finally. Last but not least, he sends in Alakazam. This is scary. Hoping to be faster, I keep in Ambipom. ****. He used Energy Ball killing me ;_; I have Froslass left, and once again I'm slower. He used Psychic while I use attract. I used a Hyper Potion praying for him to fail his move. And of course he doesn't miss it. He uses Energy Ball and once again I heal... Please Alakazam, miss your move. Omfg he didn't miss again. I'm forced once again to heal myself to see if that ugly mon will miss. OMFG 3 MOVES UNDER ATTRACT AND HE NEVER FAILS WTF?! Ok, another heal. THANK GOD HE FAILED HIS ATTACK! He uses Psychic then while I use Blizzard, which does a bit more than half. Once again I have to heal and once again he doesn't miss. Out of what, 6 moves under attract he misses 1 wtf. Another heal (seriously if he misses only once I get to destroy him). YES HE MISSED. He then uses Psychic again and. OMFG I HATE THIS ****. I MISS THUNDER WTF?! Heal one more time cuz he's a stupid Pokemon and he once again hits me. Yeah he killed Froslass. And now I remember why I didn't play for months. Seriously out of like 10 moves he missed 2 wtf

2nd try:

Ok, same strategy. Beat Mr Mime with a crit Crunch, then sent in Glalie against Bronzong to see if I could get anything. I just ended up using a good amount of ice type moves like Avalanche which did nothing. Sent in another tank, Torterra and just tried to get as much damage as I could on that thing. Which is funny because I barely did half. After half was up, I sent in Froslass. First I use Ice Fang, just for some fun damage. He uses Gyro Ball..? Does about 3/4 of damage. omfg omfg omfg i hate this game i miss thunder wtf wtf wtf. Sent in Ambipom... ok rage turned off my ds cuz this is seriously pissing me off my team is way too weak for an E4

Lucian, the fourth Elite 4 member and definitely the hardest of the four. Weavile went up against his Mr Mime and knocked it off right away with Night Slash. I sent out Vespiquen against his Gallade and got knocked out right away by Stone Edge. I went to my Gallade next and hit it with a Close Combat which didn't do a lot of damage. He swapped to Espeon and knocked out my Gallade with a Shadow Ball. Fortunately Weavile is faster than Espeon and won with Night Slash. He went back to Gallade so I chose Gliscor and defeated the weakened Pokemon with Earthquake. Empoleon was sent out against his Bronzong and this got annoying. I used up almost all of my Surf's against this stupid thing because it kept using Calm Mind. After a long battle Empoleon prevailed. Weavile went back out against his final Pokemon, Alakazam. It used Focus Blast, missed, and then fainted from a single Night Slash. At last I beat the Pokemon Leag...wait there's someone else???

Cynthia was the last thing standing between me and a super cool title. I used Vespiquen against her Spiritomb and managed to bring it down to 1HP before being beaten by Shadow Ball. I sent out Weavile and spammed Night Slash and brought it down to 1HP again but got bested by Silver Wind. Gliscor came and knocked it out. She sent out Milotic and I went to Gallade. 2 Leaf Blade's and Milotic was out. Her third Pokemon was Togekiss so Porygon-Z came out. Two Thunderbolts brought it to 1HP (I swear I am not exaggerating) but Togekiss beat Porygon-Z with Aura Sphere. Empoleon was next against Togekiss and repeated the exact same thing Porygon-Z went through, except with Ice Beam. Since Empoleon fainted I went to Gliscor and beat it. She sent out Lucario for some reason so Gliscor took it out with Earthquake. I allowed Gliscor to get knocked out so I could revive Empoleon to fight Garchomp. Unfortunately it only took one Earthquake to beat Empoleon. I allowed Gallade to faint so I could revive Weavile. Then it just became a process of hit Garchomp with Ice Shard, get knocked out, send out death fodder and revive Weavile. This lasted all the way until Garchomp fainted. Finally she was down to Roserade. One Ice Shard brought it down to half health before Weavile got knocked out. I swapped to Vespiquen, revived Weavile and then used one Ice Shard to bring her Roserade down. I was led to the Hall of Fame where my team was entered and I became the champion!

Time for another try? I think yes. Used my rare candies and started the battle. For once he didn't use Reflect but used Light Screen, so I OHKO'd Mr Mime. Then... the beast. Bronzong came in. I sent Glalie in to try to put some ok damage on it. I went with Hyper Beam (I know, why Hyper Beam) and it did nothing. And he starts setting up his Calm Mind... He uses yes another one as I recharge. Ok, I must go for Physical Damage only now. Ice Fang did less than Hyper Beam, and he uses Psychic to almost kill me. Another Ice Fang and then I go down. I sent in Gastrodon and he uses yet another Calm Mind. I go for Waterfall because it's physical damage and it gets Bronzong to half damage, nice. He uses Psychic, leaving me with about 50 HP. Another Waterfall leaves him with about 1/4 of HP. He then takes me out. Oh no. None of my Pokemon will be able to take it down in 1 hit now... I send Torterra in, to heal Gastrodon. He uses Psychic, and I manage to fully heal my water type. Seriously, unless that Light Screen goes off, this will be very though if Gastrodon loses afterwards. Torterra goes down, and I send Gastrodon in... This is it. I use Waterfall crossing my fingers as he uses Psychic. Gastrodon survives and... *sigh* he has like 1 HP left. Great. Just great. He heals while I use Waterfall again. I then wanted to use an item but misclick on Surf. wtf. I send in Scorpio... I try a Dire Hit just for fun on Drapion. He fails to take me out with an Earthquake and I use Crunch... No crit :( Oh well, now I have Ambipom and Froslass left. I send in Froslass and use Thunder for fun. Yeah at this point I know I'm gonna lose. Ambipom uses Shadow Claw leaving him with red hp.And he takes me out again... I lose to Bronzong for like the 5th time in a row since I started to beat Lucian. I find it funny how Light Screen didn't even wear off.

2nd try:
This time I go through my bag trying to find any good items to put on my Pokemon. I give some items to my Pokemon. I also go through my tm's. Alright, let's hope for some good things from this battle. Taught a bunch of new moves. Let's see if even Torterra and Glalie are helpful. Start the battle the same way, Drapion VS Mr Mime. He uses Reflect, while I go for Crunch. He then uses TBolt, while I take him down with another Crunch. Ok, it's on. He sends in... the Bronzong. I send in Torterra and use my first new move. Stealth Rock!! xD This is just the beginning. I then go for Giga Drain a couple of times as he sets up his Calm Mind... Giga Drain is all I can do really so I keep using it :p Ok reflect is off, so I heal Drapion before Torterra goes down. Then I send in Gastrodon and use Rain Dance, for giggles, while I heal myself after a Psychic. I pray that his next Psychic doesn't take me out and go for Waterfall. Well ****. I then send in Froslass for FULLY ACCURACY THUNDER!! Thunder is used doing ok damage. He uses Gyro Ball sigh, and I use thunder again, doing okay damage. With Ambipom in, I use Grass Knot, cuz I thought it would do a lot of damage lol. Since it did nothing I revived Torterra. I get taken out and send Torterra in. With Torterra in I revive Gastrodon lol. He then almost takes me out and I fully heal Gastrodon. I then send in Gastrodon and use Rain Dance again. With a rain dance on, I switch out for Drapion, knowing I'd get a free switch in. WTF HE USED EARTHQUAKE?!?!?!? IT'S LIKE HE KNEW I WOULD SWITCH OUT?!! WTF HE GETS A CRIT!! OMFG ****ING RETARDED GAME!
Well now there's no way im winning. I send in Gastrodon again wtf he uses Gyro Ball. I use Waterfall praying to beat him. YES! Thanks to the rain dance and my splash plate :D
He sends in Alakazam. I keep Gastrodon and heal Drapion(oh and he took damage from stealth rock). He takes me out with Energy Ball. I send Glalie in and revive Torterra. He takes me out with Focus Blast (he should have missed but E4 never miss their moves i guess). I send in Torterra and fully heal Drapion.... This isn't good :( He then takes me out with a crit. Serioulsy wtf, Lucian got 3 crits in this abttle already -_- Ok with Drapion in, I know I have no chances. But he misses Focus Blast and I use Payback... YES I TOOK IT OUT!!! :D :D :D Thank God that beast is out!!! :D
He sends Espeon in and it takes some damage from Stealth Rock. He uses Signal Beam which does a bit of dmg but it confuses me wtf. Thank God I don't fail, and use Payback. YES ESPEON IS OUT OMFG XD Last but not least, a beast comes in. Gallade. Knowing he can probably knock me out now, I heal, just to see how much damage he could actually do to me. Luckily, I'm a good defender. He uses Stone Edge doing some damage. I heal again to see what he'll do next. He uses Stone Edge and I heal again :P I'm trying to get him to fail his attack. Once again he hits wtf. One more heal :p What is this why doesn't he miss? Ok this time I actually use Payback, but it turns out I'm faster. He uses his last Stone Edge, leaving me with 27 HP. I heal, knowing he cant use more Stone Edge. Now, he can only hit me weak, with Leaf Blade and Drain Punch. He goes for Leaf Blade, which does nothing. He goes for Drain Punch afterwards doing ok damage.I go for Crunch, doing some damage but he heals with a berry. Not wanting to take risks, I heal again. He drain punches me again. I go for Payback, but wth now Im faster again and before he was faster? I heal again. He uses the same move... Same thing again, why is he faster now? I use Crunch and it lowers his defenses thank God. I heal again... he goes for Leaf Blade. I think he might be out of PP. Yes, he uses Leaf Blade again. I go for Crunch. He heals xD I go for Payback, not really worth it. I finally go for a final Crunch, knocking Gallade out. I defeated this beast. I finally defeated Lucian. I AM INVINCIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Muahahaha :D

Star: Easily Drapion. It took out Mr Mime, Alakazam, Espeon and Gallade, two of those with 1 move only. :D So happy I taught it Payback, knowing Alakazam and Espeon are hella fast. Gastrodon was also a beast for taking out Bronzong lol

And then it will by Cynthia. Let's see if my two Ice Types are good enough to take out her boss.
I am truly proud of my Pokemon. I considered starting a new game a while ago, but mainly Drapion showed me wrong. Cynthia will be a tough one, but after this test, we're ready for anything

Team:
;389; Leafwiggy, level 50
;423; Flirt Lvl 50
;424; Handy Lvl 54
;452; Scorpio Lvl 51
;478; Santas Bud Lvl 55
;362; HockeyMask Lvl 49

Cynthia time:

Torterra VS Spiritomb. I use Stealth Rock and she uses Silver Wind. Then I use Eartquake, and she uses Silver Wind again, not getting a boost which is awesome. Another Earthquake which almost knocks it out. She uses Shadow Ball, knocking me out. Send in Froslass and beat it with Blizzard :) 1 out, 5 to go. She goes for Lucario so I send in Drapion with one goal in my mind. Revive Torterra xD Which I do, as he tries to Aura Sphere me but he doesn't do enough damage. As I fully restore Torterra, she takes my Drapion out. With a crit really wow. Torterra comes in. She uses Aura Sphere, doing bit less than half. Earthquake also does a bit less than half. she withdraws and I misclicked and used Rock Stealth lol. The stealth rock did a lot of damage though xD I send in Gastrodon and she uses Air Slash, doing bit less than half. She goes fot another air slash almost killing me. I am so sick of this game. Seriously, Lucian gets 5 Stone Edges in a row, and I cant even get 1 hit on Togekiss. wtf. It's not over tho, I use a Full Restore. She uses Water Pulse and it confuses me. I try Stone Edge but I miss omg. Well I have to heal again ;_; She goes for Aura Sphere and then for Air Slash leaving me with 12 hp and I finally hit her with Stone Edge. OMG IM NOT EVEN KIDDING SHE HAS 1 HP LEFT!?!?!? And of course she heals. I hit her with another Stone Edge doing 1/3 of damage. So I finally let Gastrodon go down cuz I'm tired of this. I send in Froslass and go for Blizzard which happens to defeat Togekiss. I could have done this from the beginning. Wow. Lucario comes in again, and so does Torterra lol. She heals, and I strike her with an Earthquake! Muahaha. She goes for Aura Sphere and I kill her with an Earthquake. THERE! LUCARIO DOWN. Milotic is in, and so is Froslass. lol I missed 3 thunders in a row, and she missed 3 mirror coats in a row wth. When I do hit it it almost doesn't do anything. She almost knocks me out afterwards. Eventually she knocked me out, but with Ambipom I revived and fully healed Froslass, and even managed to knock her down with Grass Knot. Then she sent in Garchomp. I ACTUALLY OHKO'D IT WITH BLIZZARD AND FROSLASS :D :D Finally it was Roserade's turn. I sent in Glalie. Glalie somehow didn't ohko it lol. Anyways, Roserade has red HP. She used a Full Restore and I went for another Blizzard, while she went for Toxic. I then killed with Ice Fang :D

Finally beat the E4. It was really hard, but after 7 months (yes me and Drummerdude started this in July xD) we finished the game.

Star: Froslass and Torterra both were amazing

So after we beat Cynthia, we entered the Hall of Fame. Prof. Rowan congratulated me. And then I saw my team there, after so many hard battles. It was definitely worth it. As I saw my team go in the hall of fame record, memories came to me...

Torterra, aka Leafwiggy : Lvl 50 - My starter. Definitely a powerhouse, it showed to be one since the beginning. Though the latest battles were though, he was amazing against Cynthia, and we coulnd't have made it without him.
Ambipom, aka Handy : Lv 54 - Definitely one of my strongest since the beginning. When it evolved, it lost some of its power but it regained them when I started using it more often. A real beast.
Drapion, aka Scorpio : Lv 51 - Had some tough times as a Skorupi, and even as a Drapion. But at the E4, he showed his real strenght, by being amazing against Flint and being a monster again Lucian.
Froslass, aka Santa's Bud : Lv 55 - Probably my strongest. It showed to be amazing, against Cynthia, TG and some of the E4. Definitely worth using.
Gastrodon, aka Flirt : Lv 50 - It also had some issues as a Shellos, but once it evolved it became a strong tank. My first ever caught Pokemon, and it was amazing against Bronzong, which was our biggest problem in the E4.
Glalie, HockeyMask : Lv 49 - Didn't have enough time to stand out. But it still showed to be powerful, and it beat Cynthia's last Pokemon.

Well, this was amazing! :D

I restarted my pokemon pearl. So far, I'm entering oreburgh city, and my team is: 15 luxio, 13 piplup. I plan to evolve piplup before the gym. I recently caught a zubat with a lonely nature, so I'll train that for the second gym. I have about 2 hours of playtime, and I think this team could be possibly be my best yet.

I trained some more using the Vs.Seeker and went to challenge the Elite 4.I didn't have any major problems with anyone but facing Cynthia was very hard as usual.This time as well I could only defeat her 2 Pokemon.It was mainly due to Milotic who is very tough to handle for my Luxray and Torterra can't happen to get a hit on it despite the type advantage due to Milotic having Ice Beam.It just means some more training before taking down the Champion.

Current team: ;006; ;264; ;378; ;398; ;042; ;466;

After getting bored of White very soon after my return, decided to boot up Pearl for the first time in well over a year. Gotta say I've really missed it. Sinnoh is so much more interesting a region than Unova and little things like the honey trees and ramps you have to cycle up brought back a nice wave of nostalgia. That said, forgot how slow everything is, especially the bloody surfing.

Anyway, I've made it my first task to finally complete the Sinnoh dex. Just 3 Pokemon away; Crobat, Heracross and Mothmin. Had a Golbat in my party that I'd been trying to get to love me and was already on both hearts, (they just weren't going big), so decided to start with that. Popped across to the Department store for a few sodas, which did the trick :) Then it was off to the flowery town, (can't remember its name offhand) to buy some honey, which I spread on several trees around the area. Gonna leave it overnight and see if I've got a Heracross waiting for me in the morning. Suppose I could just nab one on FireRed and transfer it over, but wanna do this properly.

Just restarted Platinum. Decided to pick a squad of Pokemon I want to use through the whole game. I picked some of my favorites in this game, and picked only one Pokemon from any type picked.

That team's final form, nicknames, and natures:

;448; Riley - Quirky - Hatched from egg, did not chose Nature. I'll use her anyway

;442; Spiritomb - Relaxed

;470; Leafon - Unkown - Going to get it from Bebe in Hearthome and SR until it has Adamant/Careful/Jolly (unsure which I want, leaning Careful). Kinda want a nickname.

;419; Floatzel - Brave - Like Riley, hatched from an egg without picking Nature. Want a nickname for her...

;473; Mamoswine - Adamant - Kinda want a nickname

;398; Star - Jolly

I played Platinum today and did some stuff.I checked out the Fight Area and the Battle Frontier but didn't have any battles.The path to route 225 was blocked due to not having the National Pokedex.There were just two Pokemon left to complete it:Unown and Rotom.I went to Old Gateau and got all the items there and also caught Rotom in a Nest Ball.Then I went to Solaceon Ruins and saw an Unown(didn't bother catching it).Then I went to Prof.Rowan when Prof.Oak gave him a visit.Prof.Oak upgraded my Pokedex to National mode and Prof.Rowan gave me the Poke Radar.I got Super Rod from one of the Fisherman in the Fight Area.Then I went to Route 225 and defeated all the trainers there and got all the items.I arrived in Survival Area and healed my Pokemon.I checked it out and met a Move Tutor and had him teach Superpower to Luxray and Aqua Tail to Floatzel.The Battleground was closed as I haven't done the Stark Mountain quest.I saved the game.

Restarted my platinum game, RNG'ed my TID/SID for a good Impish, Timid, and Adamant spread (obviously all shiny, for the 3 dragons) But I gotta play through the game first, so I decided to do a Nuzlocke.
Rules for me:
-Catch one pokemon every route (Caves, Towns, and divided routes count as one route)
-I can catch 3 @ Mt. Coronet and Great Marsh
-Each pokemon gets 2 lives. After two deaths, pokemon "dies"
-Cannot buy revives, but Revives picked up can be used to revive pokemon without the death counting towards the live count
-Repeats of species can occur, but only if the previous species is dead (I.E, if i catch a machop in oreburgh and it dies, I can get a machoke in Mt. Coronet later)

I'm at Veilstone right now. Here's the pokes:

So I have been wanting an indimidating, monster team on any of my games for a while now instead of just picking my favourites. I decided to give Platinum a squizz and see what my team was looking like and what I need to do. After seeing I had six badges but nothing really appealing. I decided to start again, after taking like half n hour to pick a team I decided to start the game. I called myself JT and my rival Michael and the journey began. After seeing a show inspiring Michael and I to get our new Pokemon we tried to go to sigam town without any pokemon. Luckily Rowan stopped us because we would have not have gotten even close. Rowan said pick a Pokemon and so I chose Chimchar without any hesitation. The fact that it's the only fire pokemon in the game despite Rapidash ( I plan to use Eevee and using a Magmar on my other game). I called him Jedi because do I really need to explain it. Michael got to pick a Pokemon as well, he chose a Piplup. Me and Michael couldn't think of anything else but battle. After him growling me six times Jedi finally came away with the win. We decided thatexploring the region would be better than staying in a town with four houses and so off we went.

On my way to Signam town (I hope I am spelling that right) Jedi battled a lot gaining endless amounts of experience and learning Ember I arrived at the Pokelab for Rowan. It couldnd't of gone any better because Rowan liked what me and Jedi were doing so he gave me a pokedex and told me to try and see all the Pokemon in the world. Dawn said I should alert my mum and then see her on a route near by. After getting a couple of gifts from Michaels mum I went to catch Pokemon and go to Jubilife. Dawn showed me how to catch a bidoof (for a professor assistant you think they would already have a bidoof) and gave me Pokeballs. After arriving in Jubilife I went to the trainer school to visit Michael and give him my gifts from his mum. They were maps and he gave me one. I did some more exploring before deciding to go get my first badge. On the way I have caught 4 pokemon (not including my starter) and almost welcomed my new member of the team Zubat. However I forgot to name it so I will have to catch another one to help Jedi.

Just finished transferring over all my 493 Pokemon plus all 28 Unowns to Pokemon Black so this game is now empty besides a team of Golem, Machamp, Golbat, Lumineon and two other Pokemon for when I want to wander about and use HMs. Golem and Machamp evolved when traded from Heartgold and since I needed Graveler and Machoke, they had to be retired. I suppose it's about time to start a new game because this is still technically my first Diamond playthrough, where I had a team of Torterra, Infernape, Empoleon, Luxray, Rampardos and Staraptor all Level 100 with the aforementioned completed Pokedex. First game I ever completed the Pokedex on and it was great fun doing it. Time to erase hundreds of hours of work...

27th February 2013, 5:30 AM
So after picking back up the DS I went from Jubilife on my way to Oreburgh. Before doing that I caught myself two new team members to help Jedi and I conquer Sinnoh. My first Pokemon that I caught was Zubat. Crobat being one of my favourite pokemon had to join the powerhouse team. I called him Robin after spending like an hour to try and come up with an even half decent name. I went to get my second member, Magikarp. Who would of thought trying to catch a Magikarp with an old rod would take 20 minutes but now that it's all said and done Poseidon was a welcomed member to my team. I went to Oreburgh to get my first badge and train a little. I got my Robin to level 13 so that it learnt bite and Poseidon to level 10. Jedi was level 20 at this point and took out the first gym with ease. I ran into team galatic on my way to Floaroma town and paired with Dawn to take them out. Rowan was impressed and so was Dawn. She said I should take on all the gyms and explore the region but don't have to battle gyms if I don't want to. I'm just thinking well how can I go anywhere if I don't win badges you noob, Dawn.

I got to Floaroma ready to take on another gym but was let down bec in this town. Oh well onto the next one, so I thought at least. I ran into team Galatic at Valley windworks and it looked like I had to once again save Sinnoh. I talked to one and he battled me. After Robin took him down he said don't come inside or something along the lines of that. Me and Jedi ran staright in regardless to save whatever he had to save. After beating them quite easily I was able to go to the next town. Taking down all the trainers on route to Eterna forest and grinding so hard in the actual forest let me walk out with an almost unstoppable team (for the game anyways ;) ). I saved my game and took a rest ready to take on the Eterna gym leader.

I did a few stuff on my Platinum playthrough.I checked out Resort Area where there wasn't much to do but a stranger gave me a Villa.How freaking awesome is that!Barry visited the Villa.I then went through Route 230 defeating all the trainers and getting some items.I decided to do the Stark Mountain sidequest.As I went through Stark Mountain,I had to battle Mars and Jupiter.

After these battles,Mars and Jupiter decided to leave Team Galactic.I went inside the Mountain and met Buck with whom I decided to travel.I defeated all the trainers inside the mountain and got all the items(except those available through Rock Climb).Here Bronzong learned Payback.With this all my team members have their final movesets.I went inside Heatran's Room where Charon was trying to awaken Heatran with the Magma Stone but Looker arrived just at time and arrested Charon who revealed that Team Galactic had been disbanded.We went outside the mountain and Buck fixed the Magma Stone at its correct position.Looker bid me a farewell.I gave the Iron Ball I found here to Bronzong.I decided to get the remaining items for my team.I got Wise Glasses from a man in Celestic Town which I gave to Houndoom.I went to Route 227 to get the Expert Belt and found Prof.Oak at Pal Park which was now open.Prof.Oak installed a new Poketch app and told me about the Pal Park and that he was staying in Eterna City.I had to show the Level item house man a Lv.7 Pokemon.I decided to hatch the Egg into Togepi.It has Careful nature.I levelled it up with Exp.Share but it accidently levelled up more than desired.So,I went to Route 207 and caught myself a Machope and showed it to the man who gave me a Black Belt.Actually,he would give me the Expert Belt the second time.I changed the DS Clock to the next day and he asked for a Lv.52 Pokemon.I went to Route 228 and caught a Cacturne.I showed it to him and finally got myself an Expert Belt which I gave to Torterra.The only item I am missing now is Leftovers which means I am off to the Post-Elite 4 area of the Victory Road.I went to Victory Road and saved the game.

I have Platinum since Thursday. This is what I've done so far:

I chose Chimchar as my starter, because I thought I can't get fire type pokemon early in this game. Then I fought my rival for my first time.(His name is Daniel btw) He kept spamming Growl and I lost the battle. Then I was at Sandgem Town, got the pokédex and stuff. Then to Jubilife City, met Looker, got the Pokémon Watch and all the other stuff. I catched a Psyduck, a Shinx and a Geodude and beat Roark in Oreburgh City. His Cranidos was so hard. Then I went to the Valley Windworks, defeated Mars and saved the game.

After I had beaten the 2nd gym leader and got the bicycle, I wanted to do the Tweaking glitch. So, I went to Jubilife City, did the glitch, went outside the building, SAVED the game and what happens? I'm stuck in the void. I tryed to find a way to get out, but there's no way. That means I have to DELETE my save file and do EVERYTHING all over again! :(

snivy trainer
16th March 2013, 6:41 PM
I've got back into Platinum today, just because for the moment Emerald and the like are annoying me.

I began my journey again. Character's called SnivyTR, and is male. Listened to Rowen go on about stuff, misclicked a few times by mistake, and eventually managed to start the game. I listened to Barry (my rival) go on and on about things I don't care about, but I managed to pick my starter after 5 minutes of playing. I saved (naturally) and picked my starter...... Piplup! Barry picked Turtwig. My new penguin starter Pounded the tortoise to death, and I continued on.

I did the rest of the boring stuff, got Poke Balls from Dawn (oh, and I nicknamed Piplup Emperor) and caught my second member of my team- Starly. I called her Ariana. Trained Ariana against the trainers, got to Jubilife (Looker is kind of strange...) and unexpectedly caught my third member of my team- Nettle, the Budew. I didn't plan to use Budew, but it's soooo cute and makes really cute noises when you battle with it. Trained my entire team to level 9, got a Poketch, and then beat Barry the second time. Saved.

Team:
;393; Emperor {Level 10- Pound ; Growl ; Bubble}
;396; Ariana {Level 10- Tackle ; Growl ; Quick Attack ; Wing Attack}
;406; Nettle {Level 9- Absorb ; Growth ; Water Sport)

March the 21st I started another Diamond adventure as part of my Gen IV and V playthrough. I had already done some breeding on Platinum, so that I could get my desired teammembers both early and with some decent (egg)moves.
So I played through the first part of the game, had to reset a few times to get the Turtwig I wanted and after having done both that, having been to my mom and having learned how to catch Pokémon I quickly caught a Bidoof, Shinx and Starly and traded them over for my other three team members (I'll only be using four, leaving space for some HM-mules).
And now that that's done, I'm off to my adventure. Though I'm still in Sandgem Town at the moment, that won't be for long. I have to find Barry and deliver him the parcel, so that's what I'll be doing.

Team:
;387; Level 5
;072; Level 5
;077; Level 5
;442; Level 5

EDIT:
So, I went and delivered the parcel to Barry. Since he got 2 Town Maps, I got one of them. I didn't really need it, but you can't really say no to a gift, can you? Following in Barry's wake, I left Jubilife, only to be challenged by him. Beaten him easily, which apparently surprised him. After that I continued to Oreburgh city. Barry for some reason had beaten me there and had also beaten the gym leader (with a Starly and a Chimchar, now why don't I believe this). Following his instructions I went into the mines to urge the gymleader, Roark, to return to his gym. He did just that, which allowed me to challenge him. Tentacool bested both the gym trainers and Roark, with some help from Turtwig. So I've just beaten Roark, and this is what the team looks like:

In the last two weeks I have done many rematches to train my team.Of the remaining two trainers in Battleground,I got to battle Buck but I do not seem to get Riley to appear even with resetting(and yes,I have completed the Iron Island subquest).Apart from that,I went to Cynthia's Grandmother in Celestic Town and got to know about Dialga and Palkia.I went to Mt.Coronet and got the Adamant and Lustrous Orbs.I proceeded to catch both Dialga and Palkia in Ultra Balls.Dialga has Adamant nature while Palkia has Careful nature.I saved the game.

So after obtaining my first badge I also ran into the first problem: my Pokémon, apart from Turtwig (now Grotle), wouldn't always obey. After I figured that that problem'd be solved as soon as I'd gotten my second badge I bypassed most trainers, and then I managed to beat Gardenia, thanks to my Ponyta obeying when it had to. After receiving the badge and HM01 (Cut) I went back and battled all the trainers I'd previously skipped. Having done that I went back to Eterna and thrashed team Galactic in their building, special thanks to Spiritomb and it having Nasty Plot as well as Shadow Ball. Then I went and got my bike, cycled a bit and I saved past the cycling road, after having succesfully bypassed all trainers. I want to do that as much as I can, until I get my third and fourth badge, at which point my Pokémon will obey me up to lvl 50 (it's 30 now).

Team:
;388; Level 20
;072; Level 20
;077; Level 20
;442; Level 20

EDIT:
I'd just left the cycling road when I encountered Dawn, who gave me the Vs. Seeker and the Dowsing Machine Poketch app. I thanked her for that, and continued walking to Hearthome, bypassing all the trainers, save 2. In Hearthome I impressed the contest judge Keira by stopping her Buneary. I followed her to the contest hall where, to my big surprise, my mother was present as well. She gave me a tuxedo, and Keira gave me an accessoire for if I ever wanted to participate in a contest. I decided against that, and left Hearthome after a brief stop at the Pokémon center. As I was about to leave the city, Barry challenged me to a battle, but he was soundly defeated. I then went to Solaceon unopposed, only had to battle some twins. I didn't even have to heal in Solaceon, but went on to Veilstone, battling just a fossil hunter and 2 ace trainers. Having arrived in Veilstone I challenged the gym and, with some trouble, managed to beat all the gymtrainers and Maylene without any KO's. I then exited the gym and I'm now talking to Dawn, wonder what she has to say...

Team:

EDIT2:
So it appeared that team Galactic had either stolen Dawn's pokédex or she was just pathetic, lost it, and made up some story so that I, the powerful, might come to her help. Since I wouldn't be allowed out of the city, I went and retrieved Dawn's pokédex, after a double battle that was dominated by +2 Spiritomb. That battle, and the one battle I couldn't avoid allowed Spiritomb to reach lvl 26, on par with Ponyta and Grotle. I then managed to sneak past all trainers untill Pastoria City, where I went and challenged the gym. Tentacool did quite well against the gym trainers, due to resisting the water moves and knowing Sludge Bomb. Just before Crasher Wake I got Tentacool to lvl 26 as well, at which level it learned Barrier. Sweet!
So I went back to the Pokémon center and healed my Pokémon in preparation for the battle against Wake. I got quite lucky with Grotle not hitting itself in confusion, which allowed me to get to +2 attack and +1 defence, and henceforward Grotle swept the team. Both Floatzel and Quagsire were OHKO'd, Gyarados took a few hits to go down. So I'd beaten Wake and received my fourth badge, which means that all traded Pokémon up to lvl 50 will now obey me without question. That means that I can finally go back and challenge all the trainers I'd previously skipped. Having HM02 Fly now also helps.

Team:
;388; Level 29
;072; Level 26
;077; Level 26
;442; Level 26

EDIT3:
All right. I've done a whole lot since I last updated this post. I'll briefly summarise what happened.
So after beating Crasher Wake I backtracked and battled all the trainers I'de previously missed. In battling those trainers I managed to evolve both Grotle and Tentacool, which ment that 3/4 of my team had its final evolution. Having beaten all of the regular trainers, I went after a Galactic Grunt and had to battle Barry as well. After beating the Grunt, Cynthia approached me and had me going back to Solaceon town and route 210 to cure the Psyduck from their chronic headache. She then had me deliver an Old Charm, and I did just that. On my way to Celestic Town I managed to finally evolve Ponyta into a Rapidash. I quickly explored Celestic town and its surroundings and then leveled all of my Pokémon a little bit. I also tought Tentacruel Surf. Spiritomb had a field day in Hearthome, beating the gym all by itself. Before going to Canalave city I visited some previously inaccesible areas and got quite a few items. I also trained all of my Pokémon to lvl 50. In Canalave I encountered an assistant of the professor, who upgraded my dex and I had to battle Barry again, whom I soundly defeated. Then I got Torterra to clean the gym, since I realised that my other Pokémon only obeyed up to lvl 50, I'd forgotten that little fact whilst training them. After beating the gym my Pokémon were sure to obey me again, so I ventured to Iron Island, got all the items, beat the trainers and leveled my Pokémon to lvl 55. I still have to get the Riolu egg though, since I didn't have any space in my party at that point.
I then went back to Canalave and to the library, then to Lake Valor, Lake Verity and finally Lake Acuity. On the way to Snowpoint city I leveled just a little bit, letting my Rapidash lag behind since I wanted it to clear the gym. Arriving in Snowpoint after a long walk and a lot of hidden items I did just that, and at lvl 58 Rapidash finally learned Flare Blitz, making its moveset complete.
Having beaten the gym I was now allowed to use Rock Climb, a move I'd thought to my Bibarel earlier. I could now also acces Lake Acuity, which is what I did. There I was just moments to late to witness the defeat of Barry at the hands of Jupiter. She told me not to go to their HQ in Veilstone, and I nearly felt compelled to oblige, but I decided that it'd be fun creeping around in the HQ, so I did just that. I beat Cyrus and Saturn there, and set free the three mirages of the lakes. Then since I had nothing better to do I ventured to Spear Pillar and caught myself a Timid natured Dialga. Finishing this subquest I could now go to Sunyshore City. I encountered Flint there, who told me to beat the Gymleader, which I did. Then Jasmine gave me the HM for Waterfall. Instead of going to the Victory Road, I decided to visit all areas I'd forgotten about, so that's what I'm doing right now.

Alright so check it out. Since I'm only 3 Legendarys away from a full National Pokedex completion (Mew, Manaphy, Latias), I decided to complete an ItemDex. Basically, I'm trying to get at least one of every item obtainable and trade-able to diamond. I'm talking the works; Soul Dew, Berry Juice, Flutes, Plates, Wild Held Items, Poke Balls, TMs, Medicine, Accessories, PokeBall Seals, and of course, Berries.
So while I'm building the perfect Search Ops Team (My All Purpose PKMN Team) and locating and asking around for rare items, I decided to start plating berries to make better use of my time. I'm going for at least 100 of each berry, plus whatever else I need to buy all the accessories and stuff. Now, I've picked 13 spots to plant, for a total of 48 soft soils.
Alright, now you know the background to this story, here's what I came across: As I'm planting away, I go ahead to spot number 12 on Route 212, I plant my seed and head to Resort Area to spot 13. Four hours later, I remember to water the plants. Then it struck me. It's always raining on route 212, so why do I still have to water on spot number 12, huh? That's not cool. Anyone ever thought about it?

Bloody hell! Turned on my Platinum version to find that I obtained my starter in March 2010. Time flies! I'm assuming I stopped playing soon after considering I was only at Solaceon town. My team consisted of Grotle, Shellos, Murkrow and Togepi (the latter two are traded; Murkrow from Diamond and Togepi from XD.) I soon added Eevee to the team since I really want to try out Glaceon (it's the only eeveelution I've yet to use.) I SRd until I got one with Adaptability just so it won't be pitifully weak until Snowpoint (its Return is actually insanely powerful). I was surprised to find I had the Secret Key in the bag, so figured I'd add Rotom to the team. It's definitely proven it's worth, pretty much soloing Maylene. I then helped out Dawn against Team Galactic, after which Togepi evolved into Togetic. Shellos and Grotle then followed suit on Route 214. Upon reaching Pastoria City, I thought I'd try out the Great Marsh, where I managed to catch a Modest Yanma, which I definitely want to add to the team. I've trained her up, but I'm at a loss at who to replace - I'm thinking either Gastrodon or Togetic. The former would mean I have three Flying-types, which is never ideal, although I'm more fond of Togetic. Ahhh, decisions. Team so far:

I finished the actual game of Diamond a while ago, but I'm still running around in it trying to finish my pokedex, or at least as much as I can get done. It's likely I'm never going to be able to get Jirachi, Darkrai, Shaymin, Manaphy, Phione, or Arceus, or any of the other event-only pokemon. Not even by trading. My DS is wifi-capable, but the encryption on the home wireless is too strong for it, so it can't connect, and none of the games I have has any of the event pokemon. Not even the games I got used and half played through.

I FINALLY got my paws on the authentic LeafGreen and Emerald, so I have insert pokemon and pal park pokemon running around in them. Caught the Regi trio in Emerald and moved them to Diamond, and last night I took on Regigigas. Took me about a half hour, but I caught it! I named it Titan, and am contemplating training it for the Elite 4 Round 2.

Also, I found my VERY FIRST SHINY!!! I was looking for a Shuckle over in Route 224 when I ran smack into a shiny Floatzel. Not the shiny I wanted (that would be Gyarados and Absol), but still, my first shiny! Took a dozen ultra balls to catch the thing. But, mine. Until I found it, I was unaware shinies sparkled like that when they appear. Will make the next one easier to identify.

I did all subquests and went to every area I could think of. Then I decided that it wat time to get to the Pokémon League. So I went north from Sunyshore City, battling some trainers along the way. After using Waterfall to scale a rather large one, I managed to reach the Victory Road. I quickly healed my Pokémon in the Pokémon Center, before I entered Victory Road. Having entered and battled quite some trainers, gotten even more items and finally exiting I had to battle my rival one last time. His team was now quite strong, and due to some mismanagment on my part, he inflicted some damage before he was defeated.
Since I had a lot of time on my hands, I decided to train all of my Pokémon to lvl 70, which I managed to do quite fast, in about an hour or so. I then proceeded and challenged the League.
Rapidash had a field day against Aaron. I only used Torterra to beat his Drapion, since it's weak to Ground, and managed to defeat Aaron with all OHKO's.
Bertha was defeated by the combined forces of Torterra and Tentacruel. Torterra beat Quagsire, Whiscash and Hippowdon, whilst Tentacruel defeated Sudowoodu and Golem. Following this battle, Torterra reached lvl 71.
Flint was next, and Tentacruel was the MVP. Surf took care of Rapidash, Infernape and Steelix. I surprisingly needed more than one Ice Beam to defeat Drifblim, probably due to it's high HP. Rapidash then proceeded to knock out Lopunny by using Flare Blitz. I do believe that I got a critical hit, though I don't think that it really mattered. During this battle Tentacruel reached lvl 71 as well.
Lucian, the last and strongest of the Elite Four, was probably the easiest. I used Mr. Mime as setup fodder for Spiritomb, who after three Nasty Plots proceeded to destroy Lucian's team, getting all OHKO's (even with Light Screen in effect). Having swept Lucian Spiritomb had gathered enough exp to get to lvl 71.
Then the champion, Cynthia. It started off with Spiritomb vs Spiritomb. Mine used Nasty Plot the first turn, Cynthia's used Embargo. Then mine used Dark Pulse the second turn, and got the OHKO. Next was Roserade, whom I defeated with Rapidash (even though Spiritomb had Psychic), leveling Rapidash to lvl 71. Gastrodon was defeated by a single Seed Bomb at the hands of Torterra. Torterra then OHKO'd Milotic, but not before taking some heavy damage from Ice Beam. Lucario was defeated with another Flare Blitz, which left Cynthia's strongest, her Garchomp. My Tentacruel was, surprisingly enough, faster and managed to score a OHKO by using Ice Beam.
I was then taken to the Hall of Fame and registered there. Now all that's left for me to do is to explore the Battle Island and to catch some legendary Pokémon.

I am playing the 4th gen games again with TheSirPeras and snivy trainer.I am playing Pokemon Pearl.Prof.Rowan introduced himself and told me about the world of Pokemon.He asked me my name and I chose 'Akshay' because that's my real name.He asked me the name of my rival which I told SirPera(due to the character limit).I saw a TV report 'Search for the Red Gyarados!' and then I was told by my mother that SirPera wants to see me.I went to Barry's house and he told me we are going to Lake Verity in search of the Gyarados.He gets some stuff and we got going to Lake Verity where we met Prof.Rowan and his assistant Dawn.Apparently,they forgot their briefcase there.When we saw it,suddenly we were ambushed by some Starly.The bag contained some Pokeballs and we decided to use the Pokemon inside.SirPera chose a Piplup and I chose a Chimchar.Dawn came there and took the briefcase before going away.On our way back to Twinleaf Town,we meet Dawn and Rowan again who asks us to visit Rowan's lab.I check my Chimchar's gender and nature and it is Male and Naughty(+Attack/-Sp.Defense) which is pretty good.At my house,my mom gave me a pair of Running Shoes and asks me to visit Prof.Rowan.I went through Route 201 without battling any Pokemon and arrive in Sandgem Town where I visited Rowan's Lab.He gives me the Chimchar as gift and gives me a Pokedex to fill.Dawn shows me the Pokemon Centre and Poke Mart.I went back to Twinleaf Town to talk to my mom about this quest when SirPera's mom visits us and asks me to give a parcel to SirPera after my mom's persuation.I then went to Route 202 where Dawn taught me how to catch Pokemon.Then I train my Chimchar in the grass to Lv.7.Then I decided to battle all the trainers who were easily defeated.I arrive in Jubilife City and Dawn tells me about Trainers' School.I heal my tired Chimchar.Then I decide to explore Jubilife City.I learn a few things from Trainers' School and had some battles there.I also met SirPera and gave him his parcel.He gave me one of the two Town Maps and tells that the first gym is Oreburgh City.I then explore the rest of the city.I got the Poketch from the Company's President after showing him three coupons that I got from three clowns.Since there wasn't much left to do,I did the main thing that I had to do:I traded Chimchar to Platinum,taught it ThunderPunch and traded it back to Pearl.I did this to help me against my Rival because I realized I wouldn't get my next teammate until the next gym.I went to Route 218 and got an Old Rod but there was nothing to do except fishing at this stage.I went to Route 204 where I battled some trainers and got an item.I couldn't go through the Ravaged Path due to not having Rock Smash.So,I decided to go to Route 203 where I battled SirPera.

Vs SirPera
-He started with Starly and I sent out Chimchar.
-Chimchar OHKO'ed Starly with ThunderPunch.SirPera sent out Piplup.
-Chimchar OHKO'ed Piplup with ThunderPunch.

After easily defeating him,I defeated the rest of the trainers on the route and got the few items there.After the last battle,Chimchar evolved into Monferno and learned Mach Punch.He will be very helpful for the next gym.I went back to the Pokemon Center to heal my Chimchar before saving.

Like Amittal said, we're starting a new game. I'm actually playing Platinum, and will re-create my first team of my first Pt game, except instead of a Tentacruel, I'll have a Sinnoh water type. Called myself Pedro, because that's my name. Apparently, Prof. Rowan thinks that's a fine name. Ok..? Called my rival Amittal. So I woke up in my room watching "Let's Ask Prof. Rowan!" Amittal came in and said a bunch of stuff, that shortened really just mean that he wants a Pokemon. I tried to go in his house but this kid has issues lol. I went through the whole boring beginning. I also picked Chimchar. For this game I decided not to nickname my Pokemon. It was time for a battle then. Chimchar VS Piplup, this was it! Somehow I lost. Piplup kept using growl so I couldn't do anything O.o AND I had to give him 40 euros? ****ing robbery. Went home, got running shoes. Have a feeling Chimchar doesn't like me very much, but oh well. I stopped for a break afterwards.

I continued on my quest in Pearl.I went through Oreburgh Gate.Here,I battled a couple of trainers and got HM Rock Smash but apparently,I cannot use it outside of battle without the gym badge of Oreburgh City.I also cannot explore the full area of Oreburgh Gate as of now.I exited it and arrived in Oreburgh City.I went in the city and explored the various places of interest including the Oreburgh Museum before arriving at my main destination,the gym.I saw my rival SirPera outside the gym who told me that the gym leader is not at the gym and that he has already won the badge.He told me that Roark is at the Oreburgh Mines.I went to Route 207 but couldn't do much because I didn't have a bicycle but I got some Pokeballs here.Then I went to the mine where I got some items,battled a couple of trainers and finally met Roark.He showed me how Rock Smash works and returned to the gym.I went to the gym and defeated the two gym trainers.After healing my team,I challenged Roark and won on my first try.Having started with Chimchar,I didn't expect the gym to be as easy as it was.

Vs Roark
-He started with Geodude and I sent out Monferno.
-Monferno's Mach Punch did high damage while Geodude's Rock Throw did some damage.
-Monferno defeated Geodude with another Mach Punch.Roark sent out Onix.
-Monferno's Mach Punch did some damage while Onix used Screech to reduce Monferno's Defense.
-Monferno's Mach Punch and Onix's Rock Throw did some damage to each other.
-Roark used Potion to heal some of Onix's HP while Monferno's Mach Punch did some damage.
-Monferno defeated Onix with another Mach Punch.Roark sent out Cranidos.
-Monferno's Mach Punch did massive damage while Cranidos's Pursuit did some damage.
-Monferno knocked out Cranidos with another Mach Punch.

After winning the battle,Roark rewarded with me with the Coal Badge and TM Stealth Rock.I could now use Rock Smash outside of battle.Since I could now buy Repels at Poke Marts I bought some with the prize money from the gym.As I was going back through Oreburgh Gate,I met SirPera again who told me that the next gym is in Eterna City.I went back to Route 203 to catch a Bidoof as an HM Slave.I taught it Rock Smash.I then went into the lower floor of Oreburgh Gate where I got few items including TM Flash.I still couldn't access the cave fully due to also requiring Bicycle,Surf and Strength but I managed to catch my second team member:a Psyduck.It is Female and has Adamant Nature(+Attack/-Sp.Attack) which is a bad nature for it but since I am not choosy in natures ingame as such,I took it in my team.I went to heal my team before arriving back at Oreburgh Gate to train my newly caught Psyduck.I trained it to Lv.14.Then I decided to go back to Jubilife City.Here,I saw two grunts of a villanous team called Team Galactic trying to take away Rowan's research from him and his assistant Dawn.I went there to help him and had my first tag battle as I teamed up my Psyduck with Dawn's Turtwig to take out the enemy Wurmple and Zubat.After Rowan left with his assistant,a man from Jublife TV came and gave me a Fashion Case.I then went to Jubilife TV Building where I tried my luck at the Daily Lottery but failed to win any prize.I talked to a few people here and had a battle with a Cameraman.I left the building and went to the Poketch Building where the owner installed a new app on my Poketch:Memo Pad.I went to heal my Pokemon and then saved the game.

As already stated, I'm doing a Platinum run with amittal12 and TheSirPeras. I'll be doing a starterless run, that to me has some nostalgia, but that sort of thing really doesn't bother me.

Anyway, we all know what happens early game. Rowan learns your name, and your rivals (or SnivyTR and Barry). I then wake up in my room, talk to Barry several times, before we can pick our starter Pokemon. I picked Chimchar, although I have no intention of using it. I beat Barry, and then proceeded to do the Sandgem thing to get Poke Balls. I caught 2 random Pokemon, and traded an egg across. The egg hatched into a Togepi! I traded it back (no nicknames this runthrough) and used a bunch of HP Ups, Calciums, Irons and things like that, then levelled it to level 8, where it evolved into a Togetic. Taught it Shadow Ball, Water Pulse and Aerial Ace. Traded it back, and then trained it against the trainers on the routes around Jubilife. Beat Barry, and then proceeded to Orbeurgh.

I skipped Barry, picked up the hidden Heart Scale (need that for Togekiss) annd went to the Mine. Beat everyone, talked to Roark, and then went back to the gym to battle him.

Togetic VS Geodude- Water Pulse 0HKOed it.
Togetic VS Onix- Same as Geodude.
Togetic VS Cranidos- Same as above.

I went all the way back to Jubilife, beat the Plasma Grunts, and then saved.

I did some more progress on my Pearl playthrough.I went through Route 204 to reach Ravaged Path.Here,I got TM Rock Tomb and got to the other side of Route 204.I defeated the remaining trainers and got a few items before arriving in Floaroma Town.I explored this town and got some berries and TM Pluck.I found that Floaroma Meadow was blocked by two Galactic grunts.I went to Route 205 and found a girl who told that her father has been taken hostage by Team Galactic at Valley Windworks.I went to the windworks and defeated a grunt standing outside but he locked himself from inside so that I couldn't go in.I went back to Floaroma Meadow where I saw the two grunts messing with a honey salesman.I defeated the two grunts and they ran off dropping the key of the windworks.The old man gave me the keys and also rewarded me with some honey.Sweet!I explored the meadow but there was nothing except a honey tree and a house.I went to the windworks.I defeated the two grunts inside.I healed my team before challenging Commander Mars.She wasn't quite tough and I defeated her.The little girl got back to her father and thanked me.His father told me about Team Galactic's intentions which got me worried and about a Balloon Pokemon.Anyways,I saved the game.

Vs Mars
-She started with Zubat and I sent out Psyduck.
-Psyduck's Water Gun did some damage while Zubat's Bite did little damage.
-Psyduck defeated Zubat with another Water Gun.Mars sent out Purugly.
-Purugly's Faint Attack did some damage while Psyduck's Water Gun did little damage.
-Purugly's Scratch did some damage while Psyduck's Water Gun did little damage.
-Purugly knocked out Psyduck with Faint Attack.I sent out Monferno.
-Monferno's Mach Punch did some damage.Purugly's Oran Berry healed it a little and its Scratch did little damage.
-Monferno knocked out Purugly with another Mach Punch.

So I've revamped my team again. I actually only caught Bibarel as a HM slave, but I thought Simple would be fun to mess around with. After she singlehandedly swept Crasher Wake, I figured I'd keep her on the team. The other 3 I've been meaning to try out for a while, so they've been added to the party for the meantime. After mining for shards for what felt like an eternity, I spiffed up the team's moveset using the Move Tutor. I also spent a good hour spamming the VS Seeker against the trainers outside the Pokemon Mansion for cash for the Ice Beam and Thunderbolt TMs. I gave them to Lumineon and Misdreavus, respectively. I'm now currently in Celestic town and about to face Cyrus for the first time.
