Okay, PX already has a thread like this in RBY, but I thought I would start a Ruby and Sapphire one because 1.) I havent done it yet, and 2.) A lot more people play the newer versions (unfortunately cause RBY are still the best =P)

Now I'mc just c/p the rules from Px's thread and changing them so they fit with Ru/Sa...so all credit for the rules goes out to PX.

You play through either Ruby or Sapphire using Pokemon of only one type (including Duel types who must share the chosen type)

If your chosen starter is not of the type you picked, you are forbidden to use it.
No matter how stuck you get you must not use any other types.

You are allowed to use only ONE set of TMs. No trading to get TM's either through other Ru/Sa games or for those of you who have FR/LG.

As with TMs, you cannot trade between games for pokemon. This means obtaining level 5 pokemon via eggs from other games.. Trading for evolution is allowed (Machamp, Alakazam, Golem, Clamperl, etc etc etc). You may trade between other Ru/Sa games only. I must state for a final time NO TRADING TO OBTAIN NEW POKEMON ONLY FOR EVOLUTION. Ahem..


After you pass certain events or feel the need to update, you reply to the topic with details on how your progress is going, the status of your team, how hard it is, etc.

A duplicate topic is being placed in the RMT Forum, where you can post if you need moveset help or advice.

If a Pokemon evolves into a Pokemon of your type, you may use it (i.e choosing fighting and using Torchic.) if you use a pokemon who is your type and then evolves out of that type (i.e if you pick water and use Surskit, he evolves into Masquerain which is not water) you can use that Pokemon only if you keep it un-evolved.

The challenge is considered complete upon the reaching, or defeat of Rayquaza.

Now, these are the types you can choose from:

Water
Bug
Flying
Normal
Grass
Fighting
Ground

I will be doing a bug team. My neighbor is also playing but his internet is down right now so I will put up his progress. He is doing Normal.

I'll take up flying, as most of the pokes that I'll be using are one's I like or can stand. *Restarts Sapphire for the upteenth time* Meh, maybe I'll finaly get a female Mudkip for later on in Ruby for breeding.

Picked Mudkip, the first battle with Pochyena was easy. Trained up some and kicked the rival in the rear with ease. Caught my first Wurmple, and then searched for a Wingull. Focused on Mothra's training first. Evolved Mothra. Got a Cascoon. Dumped her in the box, caught another Wurmple, spent another twenty minutes training, got another Cascoon. Dumped that one in the box and caught a third Wurmple. It evolved into another Cascoon. I am starting to HATE Wurmple. Released all three cascoon, and started training Blue up from her low level. Got her up some when another Wurmple appeared. Catched it for a chance for Beautifly. Stopped for today, edit in the rest tomorrow. Decided to edit now. Evolved that Wurmple, and decided that Random Evolution was not in Wurmple's line. As it was yet another CASCOON. Released it, and trained up Blue, was inturpeted in my training by meeting Norman, and helping Wally catch a pokemon, and it was on to Petalburg woods! Blue learned a new attack, and I finaly caught a Silcoon! At a really low level.

Ran arround and ran into a guy, I forgot his name, and a dope from some group called Team Aqua. Kicked his butt with Blue. Ran onwards after being given a Great Ball, and then ran into A Taillow. Female. Like my others... getting a creepy feeling. Ran into another trainer, and beat him with Blue, and it was on to the next city! Leveling up Racer the Taillow and Mothra the Silcoon along the way. Restocked on pokeballs upon entering the city, and headed out past it too see what else I could find, and found a Nincada after searching for several minutes. Learned it evolves into a Flying/Bug creature, giving me a fourth monster. Trained Blue up some more, and she learned Wing Attack, and I decided to halt and rest till the 'morrow or something. Just realized, my whole team are female... Creepy.

Team so far;

Blue
Wingull
Female
LV 13
Water Gun, Growl, Supersonic, Wing Attack

Mothra
Silcoon
Female
LV 8
Harden

Racer
Taillow
Female
LV 9

No, you cant duplicate tms or trade them from other games. You can use all 50 tms, but only from one game.

Hey, this sounds neat Dias. I'll take up the Fighting type for my Ruby version. And for those pokemon that evolve into a fighting type like Torchic; am I still allowed to train them?

Progress: Day 1
Picked Torchic as my starter, but I couldn't name it after FT for one of my other objectives because it was a female. Oh well. Defeated May's Mudkip... I forgot how easy that was. Beat a bunch of trainers, ending up in Peltaburg Forest, where I remembered about Shroomish evolving into a fighting type... caught that; it's female. Currently training both Torchic and Shroomish to an appropriate level to beat the first gym leader, but i doubt that should be very hard.

Day 2
Beat Roxanne. Looked for awhile for Slakoth to trade for Makuhita. Beat Brawly & delivered letter while finding out that the IV's on Makuhita aren't very good... continuing to get +0's on random stats. Torchic evolved too. Went to slateport and started training there.

Current pokemon:

Combusken@nothing
Level: 19
female
Double Kick
Peck
Focus Energy
Ember

Shroomish@nothing
Level: 21
female
Mega Drain
Tackle
Stun Spore
Leech Seed

Makuhita@nothing
Level: 20
male
Arm Thrust
Tackle
Vital Throw
Focus Energy

Yes, as long as you evolve them.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay, so, started out with Mudkip just for surfing and the such later, beat the Poochyena (after ten minutes of watching Birch suffer. I wanted to see if he would bleed), and went up, beating my rival with my level 6 Mudkip. Caught me three Wurmples. First two evolved into Silcoon, last one evolved into Cascoon. Yay. Ditched a Silcoon, caught three Zigzagoon for item getting, and ditched Mudkip in teh box.

I spent 5 hours looking for a Surskit. I ended up getting Silcoon and Cascoon up to lvl 12 Beautifly and Dustox before finally finding a level three Surskit, which I baited to raise. I watched Wally catch Ralts and then headed west into the beach, beat the trainer with some Surskit/Dustox business, beat down the lvl 7 zigzagoon d00d with Surskit. hit the forest, beat thr 6 wurmple loser with Surskit, and a few other trainers, including the Magma member with his lame Poochyena.

Got out of the forest with Surskit lvl 8, (learned quick attack at 7) and got bullet seed (for no reason). Headed across the bridge engaging ina 2v2 battle with Surskit and Dustox vs Seedot and Lotad. Poison Sting + Quick attack. I win. Beat Mr. Magikarp Man and headed east, which is where I am currently training.

:283: Shirugi Lvl 11, Male. Sassy nature.

30 hp, 12 attack, 15 defense, 16 sp. attack, 17 sp. defense, 17 speed.

Currently looking for a Nincada.

~~~~~~~~

Neighborage.

Started with Mudkip, beat the Poochyena, beat the Rival, and caught a few Zigzagoon, for item getting. Then got a Taillow for first team member. Used Taillow to capture Slakoth in Petalburg woods, beating up the beach trainer, the rich boy, the bug catchers, and the team magma member on the way, and getting several rare candies, pp ups, nuggets, and full restores from those silly Zigzagoon.

Got into Rustboro, and headed east, capturing a Skitty and a Whishmur. Raised team to about lvl 14 and tried to take on Roxanne. Died. Went to train Slakoth to lvl 19 in order to get faint attack so he actually would have a decent move. Yay. Raised other guys to level 17 and is right now as I speak killing roxanne. Or so we hope.

Team:

If I was to do fighting, could I catch a Slakoth to trade for Makuhita?
Or would I have to wait until dewford?

So far:
Got Treecko from Professor Birch and beat may. Caught a level 4 lotad and battled a few trainers, then i reached Petalburg city and helped that stupid git wally catch his first pokemon. Continued onto the beach where Treecko and lotad were totally beaten to pulp by a Taillow-I'll come back to this trainer later. In the forest Treecko beat the poochyena. Caught a Shroomish and headed into Rustburo city where Lotad battled Roxanne and eventually evolved into Lombre. Treecko battled the Peeko napper and he evolved into Grovyle.

Made it to Dewford and beat every trainer on Dewford, except that idiot Brawly.
Current game info:
Play time: 2:22
Pokemon:
Edit as of day 2:
Grovyle, brave nature, Level 22 (New nick= Paine)
57 HP, 44 attack, 25 defense, 48 sp.attack, 37 sp.defense, 45 speed

Lombre, Docile, Level 20 (New nick= Yuna)
55 HP, 30 attack, 29 defense, 33 sp.attack, 37 sp.def, 28 speed

Shroomish, Quiet nature, Level 20 (New Nick= Harukichi)
57 HP, 25 Attack, 33 defense, sp.attack 23, sp.def 33, 18 speed


Roselia, modest, Lv 13 (Akahito)
38 HP, 19 Attack, 20 Defense, 35 Sp.attack, 27 Sp.def, 22 Speed



Now how many troublesome gym battles...ah lets see
Wattsons Magnemite/Magneton
Flannery-Fire- gonna have to rely on Lombre
Norman- Lets hope Shroomish has evolved by then
Winona- Oh hell no, this is gonna be harder than Brawly
Tate and Liza- gotta watch out for the flamethrower attack
Wallace- 'Ze trouble of ice attacks'

Day 2: Beat that stupid git Brawly and all of this ultra powerful Machop by paralysing and leech seeding. Finished it off with Grovyles bullet seed, Makuhita was no problem with the thanks to Lombre's natures power, and Grovyle finished Makuhita since it was healed.
Headed of to Slateport city and beat the whining brats on the beach and totally wasted the pokemon in the hut thing. All leveling up nicely in the process and learning a few skills, including Shroomish's mega drain. Beat Team Aqua and headed of towards Mauville, battling a few tough Plusle and Minums. Battled that freak May with ease, since Lombre's fake out move came in handy. Reaching Mauville I battled Wally, Shroomish used to mega drains to knock out ralts. Finally reached the place to catch Roselia, and did so.

This is a great idea but i have a question...
Can you for example have a water type o your team if you are doing a normal team just for surf and dive etc???
I am planning to have a normal team on my Sapphire but don't want to have to teach them Surf.

Dias
21st February 2004, 3:01 PM
To answer the questions..

Yes, Kingdragon, you can catcha Slakoth tot rade. That is perfectly acceptable.

broken Kaleidoscope, yes you may, as long as you do not use the water type pokemon to help you win any battles.

21st February 2004, 10:29 PM
Well, got my Nincada. Go me. Yeah that this is a pain in the 455 to raise ¬¬ Anywho, I went to fight Roxanne at lvl 12-13 because I really needed to progress as the wild Pokemon around Rustboro were giving me no exp.

Shibunu vs Roxanne (Yes me guy is Shibunu, ph33r)


Absorb brought Geodude down to about 1/8 hp, but than Imougi (Beautifly) was taken out in one rock throw. I sent out Shirugi (Surskit) and strategically made Roxanne waste both her potions on Geodude before killing it with bubble.
Nosepass came out and I started to bubble him but Shirugi died so I sent out Mitsirougi (Nincada) and sand attacked its accuracy to teh evul death. Then i just confusioned away with Mirougi(Dustox) to victory.

I went over to the tunnel place and killed the Magma's Poochyena in one shot with a critical hit leech life from Nincada and got the repeat ball and pokenav and the free ride to Dewford, where I imeedietly beat the two fisherman and raised my Pokemon in granite cave to about like 16-18, and then took on brawly.

Machop fell victim to stun spore from Imougi, Sand Attack and fury swipes from Mitsirougi, and just a good beat down of weak normal type moves until he died. I also made brawly use both super potions on machop.

Stun spore from Imougi again on Makuhita, and then a diminishing of his accuracy again, until finally beating it with fury swipes. Quite an easy battle. Got my tm and knuckle badge, delivered my letter to steven, got steel wing, and made my way to slateport.

beat the trainers on the bech; Nincada evolved into ninjask and I got shedinja (who I have now dubbed Diagi) I am currently training to fight Wattson which will be very very tough, and I'm also going to go pick up Volbeat/Illumise.

I defeated everyone on the beach after I beat Brawly, raising my team a bit. Then I delivered the DEVON GOODS, then did the trick house... simple. Shroomish evolved into Breloom, and I have changed my view on the little mushroom after training it. Effect Spore is very helpful indeed. Got lazy and used 2 rare candys on Makuhita to evolve it into Hariyama, then I own3d Wattson. Hopefully I don't do so bad when i get to Winona... I then Beat the rest of the trainers up to Fiery path with my new Machop that I caught beforehand.

LoL... Another update for today. I'm really into this Fighting Mono team thing o.o

I swept through the trainers up to Verdanturf town pretty well and met Team Magma... who stole the meteorite like they always do at Meteor Falls. I beat a few more trainers before heading up Mt. Chimney. Maxie's Golbat nearly pwn0rzed my entire team... stupid thing. Other than that, my team did well in defeating him. Battled everyone in flannery's gym including flannery, getting the 4th badge. Machop evolves too. Did the same thing at Norman's gym... Focus Punch was evil on my Breloom. I'm currently heading towards to Winona... to make an attempt at least to beat her flying types. Going to get Meditite first though

Question, even though im not really parcipating, I just thought of something wrong with the game. Say you pick to use fire type. Well i dont think any fire pokemon are able to learn Surf. How are you suppose to progress if you cant use Surf?

YamiRyu: This is Spam ¬¬'. Anyways if you READ the FIRST POST. You would see catching HM slaves like Zigzagoon are within the rules as long as you don't use them. But, since there aren't enough fire types for a mono team, you can't have all fire types.

Actually I did read the first post. Several times. It says nothing about HM slaves

Time for my update:

After catching roselia, I fought the trainers outside of the breeding centre where finally Shroomish evovled into Breloom YAY!. Then i went to challenge Wattson and it was easier than i first thought, Breloom owned this match. One mach punch knocked out Magnemite, two mega drains against Voltorb and two Mach punches against Magneton. Then Battled the winstrates and trained Roselia some more and then battled the tv crew. Continued onto the firey path and battled more trainers, reaching Fallabor town. Went to mount Chimney and defeated TA, but the leader nearly beat me with Golbat. Then i headed to Lavaridge where i healed and then went to challenge Flannery. The trainers in the gym were no problem but Flannery used Torkoal which wiped the floor with my pokemon.

Edit: After FINALLY beaten Flannery with the help of poisoning, i headed to the desert and picked up the root fossil. I also caught a Cacnea which i called Megumi, and headed for Rustburo. De-fossilised Lileep and named it Junouchi. In Petalburg gym, I used Brelloom in every battle and won with ease. I got HM surf and taught it to Lombre.

I start off naming my character Terra (the Latin for Earth), and exploring Littleroot Town. My rival May runs off, and I find her father under attack. Mudkip fights off the Poochyena with ease, and I'm on my journey. Since Mudkip will be my companion for a while, I let him get plenty of training against every thing on my way to Rustboro. By the time I reach it, Clay (as I've named him) has reached level 15. Inside the Gyn, He rises to level 16 just before Rozanne and evolves into Marshtomp.

Rozanne is piddle beneath Clay's Water and Ground moves and I'm quickly on to Dewford, after detouring around to save Peeko and humiliate Team Aqua's grunt. At Dewford, I make my way through the caves, in pitch black to hand a letter to Steven, and catch a Geodude on the way. I decide to train my newly caught pokemon, Boulder, back on shore, so I head back. I catch a Zigzagoon too to teach Cut and i head north of Rustboro again to fight the trainers behind the mini trees.

With Boulder hitting a relative level 15, I go back to Dewford and enter Brawly's Gym. Boulder is no use, his rock type is easy bait for the fighitng moves, so it's down to Clay to fight through. So far, i've beaten two trainers, with only one remaining before I face Brawly.


:074: [Boulder] Tackle, Mud Sport, Defence Curl, Rock Throw
:259: [Clay] Tackle, Bide, Mud Shot, Water Gun

:263: [SLAVE] CUT

the trainers in the gym werent really a challenge it was when i reached flannery that i started to get mad, i all my pokes would die 1 hit from flamethrower beacse its super efffective to bug, i would use maserquian to kill his first two then i after about 10 trys i got a lucky critical hit with bubble beam killing his camerupt and beating flannery.

Dad Gym5
Took me a couple trys to beat until i figured out a fast combo to get sword dance on a couple times without dieing, then i jus ohko. pretty easy.

then i went and picked up an anorith and i am now on my way to the flying pokemon gym.

I did a lot today o.o

I ran around beating more trainers today as I went past Fortree City, evading Winona since my team has a LOT of trouble with flying types as I learned beforehand. I also traded Machoke to evolve into Machamp. Went to Safari zone to catch Heracross only to learn that I needed to go back and get the pokeblock case. Ditched that idea for now and went to catch Meditite, which I did. Got the Pokeblock case after I beat the trainers on Mt. Pyre and spent awhile looking for Heracross, which actually stayed for once. Threw a bunch of balls at it... Finally caught it. Raised both of em to my team and cleared out Magma Hideout, in which my Combusken evolved. Then I went out to the ocean, and beat a bunch of trainers to get Meditite to evolve into Medicham. Heracross is doing very well too. Currently going to use my Heart Scale on Medicham to get Thunder Punch, so I can clear out Winona.

Another update for my bug team even though its only been like 6 hours but here i go,

winona gym6
i thought this was gonna be tough because my type is bug and all there types are flying but winona played like an idiot and used protect while used sword dance 3 times. ohko the rest of her pokes

phychic twins gym7
this was pretty tough i had to use all my pokemon to kill the sun and moon, I was down to my last pokemon: pinch he used a brick break and killed the sun.

Team Magma underground place
my armaldo swept the magma leader with brick break, it was really easy

Groudon
Caught him with 3 ultra balls, i died first try tho

*side note: somthing that really annoys me is that most my pokemon are flying/bug but they still cant use fly so i have to have 3 hm slaves, pisses me off


Edit/update:
i got to victory road with my pokemon at lvls 37-50. pinch is my strongest at lvl 50, so i start fighting elite four to lvl up but only to get my *** kicked like 30-40 times, my start was to use ninja to baton pass then have pinch kill the rest, against first guy i would brick break which would ohko, second trainer i would use earthquake which would ohko, third i would use ancient power which would ohko, 4th i would use ninja to sword dance but this is where the problems started, ninja would get killed 1 hit by rock tomb and pinch would kill dragon trainer, but hed be too weak to take care of steven, pinch started to lvl like crazy as this process ended up taking me to fight the elite 4 at least 30-40 times, finally i decided to lvl up my ninja so it could survive a rock tomb, and i also bought some potions, this time it worked, then vs steven i was able to sword dance twice and kill him easily with pinch, when i first killed the elite 4 pinch was at a towerin lvl: 98. im now off to finish my quest with the death of rayquaza.

Well, the last of my disadvantage pokemon gym is now over. Lets tell you the story
Grovyle evovled YAY!

First few attempts battling Winona ended in tragedy. So i went to train them up and so i battled Team Aqua on Mt Pyre and in the base. Tropius leveled up nicely as well as Cacnea (who's pin missile had an advantage over Poochyena). Lileep didnt get as well trained, only rising two levels. But with Sceptile on level 38 I headed back to the gym. This is how it went
Sceptile V Swellow
Sceptile used Rock tomb, dealing more than half the damage
Swellow used Double team
Sceptile used another Rock tomb and knocked out Swellow

It also took two rock tombs on Pelliper, but Skarmory was the real pain. I used Lombre's Surf since it done the most damage, saving Sceptile for Altaria. Lombre was knocked out a few times but sacrificing my weaker pokemon to revive it helped. Winona used both hyper potions on Skarmory and then from a Critical hit! from Lombre, it was knocked out. Next was Altaria, but i switched out sceptile. Sceptile began with Rock tomb doing slightly less than half damage, Altaria foolishly used Dragon dance. Sceptile used another Rock tomb, Altaria used Aerial ace. Sceptile took the attack and then launched another Rock tomb on the "unable to recover because Winona used all hyper potions on Skarmory" Altaria was hit and fainted. So i flew to Lillycove city: Here is the current team

:254: Paine- Sceptile- Lv 43
122 Hp, 103 Atk, 65 def, 110 sp.atk, 89 s.def, 108 speed
Slam
Leaf Blade
Rock Tomb(marvel the life saver)
Pursuit

:271: Yuna- Lombre- Lv35
90 hp, 49 atk, 49 def, 58 s.atk, 63 s.def, 47 speed
Rock smash
Surf
Dive (but will be deleted soon)
Nature power

:286: Harukichi- Breloom- Lv 34
92hp, 102 atk, 67 def, 52 s.atk, 53 s.def, 53 speed
strength
Flash- once i dont need it i will delete it
Mach Punch
Mega Drain

:331: Megumi- Cacnea- Lv 28
67hp, 27 atk, 27 def, 62 s.atk, 37 s.def, 32 speed
Growth
Leech seed
Ingrain
Pin missile

:345: Junouchi- Lileep-Lv 29
81hp, 37 atk, 57 def, 46 s.atk, 61 s.def, 21 speed(well that sucks)
Astonish
Confuse ray
Acid
Giga Drain

:357: Kimori- Tropius- lv 31
111 hp, 47 atk, 56 def, 58 s.atk, 66 s.def, 38 speed
Growth
Magical leaf
Stomp
Fly

Edit/Update:

The 7th gym battle, was incredibly easy. Lunatone fell with a critical hit from Sceptile's leaf blade while Lombre used Surf doing quite a bit of damage to Solrock. But Solrock knocked out Sceptile so Lombre was the one to finish it off. More leveling up as always

Taught lombre Dive and battled Archie, Breloom battled Mightyena- knocking it out with two Mach punches. Crobat was the biggest pain, Sceptile weakened it with a two rock tombs. Sceptile was knocked out then i sent out lombre, but Archie healed Crobat and knocked out Lombre. From here on I sacrificed my weakest pokemon to revive Sceptile and Lombre. But sceptile finished it of with a critical hit rock tomb, and Sceptile leaf bladed Sharpedo, knocking it out.

Current location: Sootopolis city

Another update: Got Kyogre- which will be my Waterfall slave- so i will deposit Breloom in the box and pick it up when i reach the end of victory road. The gym battle was fairly easy, I battled the trainers below the gym and then challenged Wallace with Sceptile at the start of the list. Luvdisc was knocked out by one Leaf blade, so was Seleo, so was Seaking and so was Whiscash. The real pain was Milotic, with knowing Ice beam. Yet again i had to sacrifice my weaker pokemon to revive Sceptile, and it took three leaf blades, and that was after two mach punches from Breloom. But Milotic recovered using recover.

Current Location: Sootopolis pokemon centre
Goals now: Take on victory road, reach the pokemon league, evolve Lombre into Ludicolo

Another small update: Finally reached victory road, deposited Kyogre and withdrew lombre.

Well this sounds fun so I will use all water Pokemon. I just restarted Ruby and TCG so I my progress will be pretty slow since I will be playing both.

I started with Mudkip, beat Brendan, got my Running Shoes, beat a lot of trainers and wild Pokemon, helped Wally, and I am standing in front of Petalburg's Pokemon Center.

My trainer's name is Aquiana. So far I only have Mudkip: level: 10; item: none; ribbon: none; hp: 32/32; attacks: tackle, ground, mud-slap, and water gun.

If I left out any information that I was supposed to tell you, tell me what it is and I will add it.

Now for my stupid questions: 1. Can we use other Pokemon types for the contests? 2. Can we use TMs that you have to buy at the stores more than once? 3. Can we trade with the people in the game? Example: I catch a Bellossom and trade it for the girl in Pacificlog Town's Corsola

ANinyMouse
23rd February 2004, 10:40 PM
1. Dunno... this wasn't a contest challenge by nature.
2. Yes.
3. Yes, but only if the pokemon you're getting is your type.

I'll be starting this before long. I just need to wait for Colusseum :( RAWR.
Anyway, might I make a suggestion? Why not allow people to use Poison and Psychic types as well? There's plenty of them, and there are at least 2 avaiable before the second gym, so why not? I ask, becuse I'd love to try an all-Poison team.

Damn ¬¬ everyone is so damn far ahead of me. Anyways this post due to be edited soon or something.

I trained up somemore, and grabbed three Zigzagoon's for items, and trained up the two pokemon I chose out of the original four to train up. Blue and Mothra. Mothra finaly evolved into a Beautifly, and learned Absorb, Blue grew stronger and I was finaly able to face Roxanne. Mothra fell early on in battle, to the Geodude, but Blue pulled through with her water gun. After leaving the gym, I healed my pokemon and headed north again to train. Was voluntered to help get back an item, and then a pokemon. Learned it was the Same Aqua grunt, and kicked his rear into the next century with a single Gust from Mothra. After going through some more voluntearing, I headed to Mr Briney's to go to Dewford, after I made sure to stock up on suplise just incase. I headed to where I heard the person supposed to get the letter was at currently, and ran into some wild pokemon, and started to train Blue and Mothra up. I then later caught a Zubat I'll need to do some heavy training on.

Edit; I faced Brawly, after finding Steven. Brawly was easily defeated by Mothra. I continued on too my next mission, and was forced to fight some more Aqua members, but they fell easily before Blue. Later on, heading to Mauville city, Blue evolved and I faced Brendan again in another battle. Mothra took out his Numel, but the Wailmer was too powerful, and knocked her out. Blue dodged a Roll Out with protect, and finished it off with Wing Attack, and then mopped the ground with Grovyle. Continuing on, I made it too the town only to find the gym was home to an electric trainer, making my team ultra weak to his attacks. So my best bet is to get some heavy training done before I face him.

And Zuzu has yet to get some battle experience.

Current Stats;

Blue
Pelliper

LV 27
Water Gun, Protect, Supersonic, Wing Attack

Mothra

Don't worry, Yami Ryu. I'm farther behind then you are. I started yesterday and haven't battled at the first gym yet. Which I will do as soon as I find and catch another water Pokemon since so far I only have Mudkip.

Brawly was hard on Geodude, his rock type not standing up to his fighters for one second, so Clay took down his two man team in no time. After that, it was on to Slateport. I cleared the beach of trainers, aswell as pikcing up Soft Sand and 6 Soda Pops. Team Aqua were blocking the entrance to the museum, until after I spoke to Dock. Those grunts proved no match for Boulder and CLay and soon I was off to Mauville. I met May on the way there, and her Grovyle totally decimated my team, who were both double weak to grass. So I spent some time leveling up Geodude to level 25, where it evolved into Graveler.

Now Graveler still couldn't defeat Grovyle with Rock Throw in time, as it could survive only 1 absorb, so it Self Destructed to blow that grass type away. Clay cleaned up the others then, namely a Wailmer and a Numel. Onto Mauville, and Wally is waiting to fight. His Ralts falls instantly and I move to take on Wattson. I fear nothing, as a gym full of electric types poses no threat to a team of Ground types. Each trainer falls, and Clay is up to level 25 too.

Wattson drops quickly, and now that I can Rock Smash it's up and away to find a Numel. The first patch of grass I hit, I find the camely pokemon and catch it, naming it Spout in the process. Now to back track, and level up Spout. Cycling Road is full of Magnemite trainers, perfect pickings for a fire type to attack. NUmel is slowly leveling up. Next on the list is to work through two Trick Houses to level up more, defeat hordes of trainers, and make my way to Fallarbour Town. A long way to go.

:259: [Clay] Tackle, Bide, Mud Shot, Water Gun
:075: [Boulder] Tackle, Self Destruct, Ancient Power, Rock Throw

ok well i decided i would like to start another mono-type team. this time ill try the fighting type.

Fighting type Challenge
First i picked a torchic and named it "punch". i lvled it up to about 13 when i found a shroomish, so i decided to catch it, i named it "jab". i lvled them both up to lvl 16 and then i went to the first gym.

First gym
this was increably easy as i had mega drain and leech seed, shroomish defeated first gym single handedly. I also caught a zigzagoon for me hm slave.

Brawly gym2
this was another easy gym, i jus pecked away at em with my punch and they all died almost 1 hit.

Delivery to steven
i went go to deliver steven a letter and lvl my pokes up a little more and i realized that there is a makuhita in this cave, so i caught 1 and named it "upper cut." i got through the cave without even having to use flash.

Slateport city
not much trouble with the trainers here or the magma trainers, really easy, i lvled up at the soda pop place

Rival battle
i used my uppercut to kill most her pokes which again was really easy, and had jab finish her marshstomp off which evolved into a breloom. yay!! I taught it mach punch witch is pretty good

Watson Gym3
I mached punch all his pokes to death with 1 hit each, another very easy gym

so far this journey has been 10x easier then my bug team, all gyms i have tryed i have beaten first try, i hope there will be a challenge soon.

Pokemon:

Punch(Combusken)
scratch, peck, double kick, ember

UpperCut(Makuhita)
tackle, focus energy, vital throw, arm thrust

Jab(Breloom)
Mega drain, Headbutt, Mach Punch, Leech Seed

My stratagy and training for Watson varried, from heavy training too trying to get Nincada to learn Mudslap or Dig. I found a Surskit, and using a mix of rare candies, daycare center and fighting, got her to learn Bubble beam before evolution. My team also went through a drastic rehaul, most likely the last. Blue is now in the PC, as she doesn't have the stats for her dual types. While still training my Masqurain and Beautifly up, I headed to Petal Burg pier/port, stopping along the way to fish, and caught a male Magikarp for my team, as Gyarados are Water/Flyers. After reaching the headquarters of that old man, I was given a EXP share which I imidently gave to my Magikarp to let him start getting EXP.

I went back to Mauville, heading into the trick masters house along the way, and recived another rare candy. Doing some more heavy training, I felt I was ready to face Watson as I grabbed Blue from out of the box, and used her to knock out his underlings, and Watson's own Magnamite. But even Blue was taken down by a Voltorb, and it was up to Mothra to fight. A combo of Full Restores, Super Potions, Morning Suns and Silver Winds and she won the battle single handedly. After getting the badge and TM, I headed north/east/whatever, again and ran into trainers along the way, and Magikarp kept getting stronger. I made it too Fallabor town, and headed on to route 114, where I ran into a few trainers and caught the fourth for sure pokemon for my team. A male Swablu. And in Meteor Falls, I ran into the Aqua idiots again, and Team Magma. It was also there where Magikarp evolved.

After heading out a back way, and getting some more cash from fighting a few more trainers, I headed to Mt Chimney, and found Aqua and Magma fighting, and the Team Magma leader got me to help him, and fight some lackys of Archie, and Archie himself. He quickly fell to a combo of Scorpion and StormRider and a revive or two. And his Sharpedo was no match for Mothra. After mopping up a few trainers along the way to the next Gym, I halt at the pokemon center, to heal my pokemon's battle wounds, and think over how I am going to fight this next Gym Leader, a fire user, with half my team bug, and the other half unable to really be able to face the heat.

I've been training Lombre and the others on Victory road, once Lombre reaches level 44 I will evolve it. I challenged the elite four and that's how Sceptile grew stronger. Sydney was no problem when all of my team worked together, Lombre taking on Mightyena with brick break, Sceptile against Absol, Breloom against Cacturne, my Cacturne against Shiftry and Sceptile against Sharpedo. But I lost to the ghost elite (forgot her name) and so began training again, and i must get Lileep to evolve.

I will update this once I have won
Another update: Evolved Lombre at Lv 43 since it learned Uproar, hydro pump is too inacurate to be effective.

I'm becoming fond of these little grass pokemon, but still they only come second to my ruby team.

*leaves the forum to train up is ruby non-mono team*

all these people with mono type teams are gonna make my link battles a lot easier :D
That was spam.

Anyways, I creamed Roxanne and her gym trainers using one water gun for each Pokemon, helped Mr. Briney, beat Team Magma, delivered the two items, and am now standing in front of the Trick House. I am going to battle at the second gym but I want to catch another Water Pokemon (preferably Wingull) so I can raise it's level while I'm at the gym.

Mudkip evolved while battling the first gym trainer at Roxanne's gym. Here are his new stats:

Level: 19
Item: None
Moves: Tackle, Mud Shot, Mud-Slap, and Water Gun
And he now has Ground as his second type.

Finally I get Numel to a nice level 25, and I'm off to Fallarbour Town. When I reach the top of the mountain, I catch myself a Sadnshrew and name it Klaws. Now Klaws is only lv 18, so it's going to take some hard training to bring it up to the same level as the others. So hard training it is. All the trainers I can find, aswell as backtracking along every route to get EXP. Fighting in the wild too, I teach Kalws Secret Power, to give it abetter attack after Scratch and Poison Sting. Fortunatly he evovles at level 22, giving me atougher Sandslash.

Finally, Klaws is at lv 25 and I can liberate Meteor Falls and the Volcano. All goes well, with Archie's team falling foul of Rock Throws and Slashes from Graveler and Sandslash. Next stop is that town with Flannery in which I've forgotten the name of, oops. Anyway, I stock up on Revives and Burn Heals then take on Flannery's Gym. Her trainers prove to be of little worry, giving Klaws the EXP to bring him up to lv 28 along with the others. He also decimates Flannery's two Slugma, but an Sunny Day boosted Overheat from Torkoal KO's it. Out comes Gravaler, who defeats the overgrown tortoise with 3 Rock Throws, taking barely any damage from the Body Slams thrown at it.

Outside, May appears and hands over a set of Go-Go-Goggles, so next stop will be the Desert and I can fill up my team with two brand new pokemon! When I get there, the first pokemon i encounter is a Trapinch. Sandslash manages to KO two before I choose to wear it's HP down with Poison Sting, then capture it. Trapinch is named Antlion. Next, a Baltoy, and it's a rare one. I finally find one, but it Self Destructs as I wear it's energy down. When the next one appears, I tackle it once, and throw the only Ultra Ball I have, from my Slave's Pickup. Gotcha! Now to train up these guys and the rest of my team to level 30 before I take on Petalburg Gym.

I really don't think it's fair that you are using THREE Zigzagoon as Pick Up SLaves. You're only meant to catch as few HM Slaves as necessary, and 1 ZigZagoon will cover you for Rock Smash, Surf, Cut and Strength if evolved into Lionne. Taking advantage of it's Pick Up ability to get extra items [b]x3 just isn't really fair.

I thought it was going to be hard because I was using an all water team versus a lot of Electric Pokemon but Marshtomp beat them using Rock Tomb. After getting the badge I went to the Winstrate's house and beat them. Then I went to the Pokemon Center and I defeated all the trainers on the Bike Path. I fought all the trainers on Route 117 and my Magikarp finally evolved. I am now in Verdanturf Town.

When I first bought the games, I bought Sapphire first, completed it, and a few weeks later bougth Ruby. Since the days of RBY, I'd wanted an all water team, but was never able to do it until Ruby and Sapphire because of Pelliper and Wingull. So, I bred on Sapphire, and traded them over to Ruby. My team was Mudkip, Huntail, Wingull, Chinchou, Spheal, and Corphish. It took FOREVER but I finally completed the game... I've restarted twice since then, however.

So did I! That's why I am using one for mono type team challenge. And it's actually pretty easy. ^_^

Good point, thier aren't doing much so i will get rid of 2 of them and fill two ground types in

you want a challenge? try the bug type, i beat it but it was very challenging, i had to lvl up my pokes very high to beat the elite4, my strongest guy was at lvl98 when i first beat the elite4

Now on to more important things: when we last left off i had jus beaten the 6th gym, winona and had my pokes on lvls from 34-38.

May Battle at Supermart
I was expecting a little more but my fighting team has been doing very well, beat her without trouble, upper cut took her pokes out quite fast.

Phychic Twins Gym7
This was actually the hardest gym ive had to face since they were phychic and i was fighting which i think is super effective against me, they killed my pokes 1-hit with phychic so it must be. Needless to say i had some lvling up to do before I could return. on my return i was victorius in defeating the twins.

Rockets/Groudon
Rockets werent that bad cept for the crobat, i jus bulked up a couple of times before facing it and ohko all maxie's pokes. Groudon was bein a ***** though, my pokes werent his level so they kept getting killed so i decided to jus kill him because i wont be using him ne ways.

Water Gym8
This gym was just for the exp, I made sure i battled everyone in the gym so i could get more exp for the leader. (I do this in all gmys, jus thought i mention that tho) leader took me only 1 try, pretty easy.

Victory Road
I then made my way to victory road and made it through victory road without flash which was a little difficult, the only problem was wally's Gardevoir and its phychic, it killed most me pokes 1 hit. How I beat was i would bulk up a couple of times before I fight then i could ohko. I am now Raising my pokemon to take the elite4

I chose the bug challenge. So far, this is what I have done:
Day One
I started off with Mudkip so my rival would choose Treecko, which bug pokemon have an advantadge over. Then, I went and caught my first pokemon, a sassy Wurmple. As soom as I caught Wurmple, Mudkip went into the box. Things became much harder now. Wurmple kept fainting until it finally evolved into Cascoon, just what I wanted. After finally obtaining my sassy Dustox, I went and caught a timid Surskit. Eventually, I made it to Rustburo City and after 2 hours, I finally caught an adamant Nincada. Finally, I thought I was ready to challenge Roxanne. After losing three times, I decided I need one more pokemon. Now, I headed back to the Petalburg Forest, and wasted another three hours to catch a mild Wurmple girl. It paid off, finally having a team of four strong pokemon. Finally, I took the bugs to the rocks and challenged the gym leader. The battle went like this:
Geodude versus Surskit:
Surskit used bubble draining 3/4 of Geodude's energy. Geodude used rock throw, bringing Surskit down to one HP. Roxanne used up both of her potions on Geodude, and it ended up fainting before Surskit. Before she sent out Nosepass, I switched to my new Beautifly. It went like this:
Beautifly used absorb, which barely hurt Nosepass. Nosepass used rock tomb, ending Beautifly's battle. Next, I sent out Dustox for a whack.
Dustox started with confusion, which confused Nosepass. After draining a large portion of Nosepass's energy, Nosepass finally used rock throw. It was a critical hit, and Dustox was down. Surskit came back with one HP to spare.
Surskit used bubble. Nosepass had barely any HP left, but hadn't fainted. One tackle knocked Surskit out. I had one last pokemon, a level 7 Nincada>.!.!.!.!
Nosepass used its rock tomb, draining exactly half of Nincada's HP. I had one choice of attack. Nincada tried a leech life. Would it knock out Nosepass?......................... Yes! I won my first badge, and Nincada grew to level 8. I exited the building, when the Devon goods were stolen. This is where I saved. This is my status:

I continued with my bug challenge today.
Day Two
After earning my stone bagde, I ventured to Rusturf Tunnel and saved Peeko, the Wingull. Immediately, I headed to Dewford Island/Town and delivered Steven's letter, yes, in the dark. Finally, I went and beat Brawly using only my Beautifly. All my pokemon gained some levels today. After the badge, I headed to Mauville, beating Grovyle with Dustox's gust attack alone. Finally, I decided to skip Mauville, and headed straight to the Trick House. I saved here.

I've started a Mono water challenge.

Stone road

I picked Mudkip, which I nicknamed Zora. Beat Treecko with Zora. Then left off and caught a Wingull (Guay) and Surskit (Tekite). I raised Zora to 13, Guay to 11, and Tekite to 9 (hard to train). Before heading to Rustboro, I caught a Zigzagoon for HM's and put him in the box for now. Faced Roxanne and lost. Her Nosepass was too much for zora and rock moves killed Guay and Tekite easily. I trained Zora to 16 and evolved it. And destroyed both Roxanne's Pokemon with Zora.

Knuckle road

Went to rescue Briney's Wingull from Aqua. Then went to Dewford and trained Zora to 19, Guay to 16, Tekite to 13 in the Granite Cave. While I was in there I fetched a Everstone so tekite and met Steven. I went to Brawly and his machop beat Zora and Makuhita critical hit KO'd Guay, Tekite's hits were too weak and I lost. I decided to go to Slateport and clear the whole Seahorse House and Beat the Aqua members. Zora and Guay went to 21 and Tekite went to . I went back to beat Brawly, and cleared him with only Guay.

Dynamo road

I went back to Slateport and went out and through under the Cycling road. Had lots of trainer fights in the way including May, Zora beat Numel and Wailmer, while Guay handled Grovyle. Trained Zora to 24 for Wattson, and was sick of Tekiite constant failure because of its weakness so I deposited him. Caught a Marril, which I named her Morpha. Bumped into Wally and beat Ralts with Morpha. Beat Wattson with the Mud Shots from Zora.

Well, fighting the people in the Gym was good EXP for Gyarados and Masqurain. Flannery was tought too beat, I had to use several revives after taking brutal blows from Body Slam and Over Heat. But in the end, I was able to heal and deal more damage than her Torkoal could. After the battle, Brandon appeared and gave me a pair of goggles, but as I really wasn't into exploring the sandy desert, as no flying types lived there, I moved on.

Dropping Skye and StormRider into the Daycare, I headed back to Petalburg to fight my father. His underlings were easy to defeat with Scorpion, but my father proved to be stronger than even I could ever have guessed. His Slaking's would have been the death of me if it wasn't for their inability to attack right after attacking was the only thing that saved me. I used a dance of Switch revive, switch revive, switch heal, switch attack, switch revive and finaly wore down my fathers final Slaking. After gaining the badge, TM and HM I headed back too Mauville and then past that, meeting the camera people again and defeating them with ease. I also had decided to drag Skye around with me, to get him up to his evolution level faster. The trainers along that route were easily defeated, and so weren't the Aqua members when I fought them. I was given a Castform, which I put in the box and headed onwards to Fortree city. I met and fought Brendan for the third time, and just like before he fell to my bug/flyers with ease. Heading into and then out of Foretree city, I ran into the camera guys again, but they were harder to defeat, but I pulled it off and gained money and a rare candy my Zigzagoon found. I saved it for Skye.

I fought another trainer, this time of bird pokemon, and then ran into Steven again, and had to fight a Keckleon. After defeating it, Steven gave me the device and flew off, the only trouble I had there was when I ran into a Trainer with a Milotic, but I was able to defeat it with a Giga Drain/Silver Wind Combo. Going onwards, I found the Safari Zone, but had to back track for a Pokeblock case to enter the zone later on. Continuing on to Lily Cove, I ran into Brendan again, and had some trouble with his new Swellow, but once more he fell to Scorpion and Mothra. Next time I headed for the Safarizone, I had the item I needed and was able to get in there and capture a Natu which I named Tu and put in with StormRider to gain EXP. I then focused on training Skye up, heading to Mt Pyre to chase down the Aqua'a and get EXP from them. Not only acomplashing that, I obtained a Blue orb because the person, Maxie, or Archie, or whatever, stole the Red orb.

But before I could do anything else, I had too face down the Aqua Members. Again, going through their 'Secret Base' I kicked their hidnends and was able to get money and EXP from them, but was unable to stop Archie/Maxie whatever his name was again. This seems to be turning into a cycle...

Anyways, I moved my travels onwards, and faced a few more trainers that gave me alot of trouble, and had to face a low level Magneton that nearly KOed my whole team. And finaly, after hours of training, Skye evolved into an Altaria. I then continued to train him up before deciding to face Winona as I defeated her lackie's with StormRider and Tu to get Tu too level thirty to learn wish and evolve. Buying two Ice Beam TM's I tought too Scorpion and StormRider, while using the Steel Wing TM on Skye, I faced Winona and defeated her pokemon with Storm and Scorpion.

I headed back to Lilycove, and surfed on StormRider too Mossdeep, now I must train my two pokemon StormRider and Tu up before facing Liza and Tate and figure out what pokemon will be my final adition too my team.

Trained Chives Level 10, then caught a Seedot Level 4, which i named Acorn. Trained Acorn and Chives to Level 12, then helped Wally catch Ralts. Entered Petalburg Forestm and beat Team Magma. Trained Acorn to evolve, than taught it Bullet Seed.

Today was a day of evolution and change.
Day Three
After the trick house, I headed back to Mauville City, there, I began to level up my pokemon rapidly. My level 12 Nincada actually grew 8 levels and evolved into Ninjask and Shedinja. I leveled up Dustox to learn psybeam and Beautifly to learn mega drain. Surskit however only gained three levels. Pretty soon, I caught an Illumise and leveled it up 10 levels to level 24. Finally, I thought I could challenge Wattson.
You guess what happened...
After badly losing to Wattson and his idiot Magneton, I decided Surskit needed a change. Eventually, Surskit reached level 25 and learned bubblebeam. Now, I let it evolve. Finally, I beat Wattson (which was because of Masquerain's special attack/defense and bubblebeam attack). Last of all, I went back to Slateport, bought some calcium and gave all six of my bugs nicknames.

Today was a day of battling and evolution. First I healed my Pokemon, then bought 3 potions. Next, I went into the gym and beat the gym trainers. Chives was now at Level 15. Next I beat Roxxane(sp?) using Chives and Acorn. Acorn grew to level 15, and Chives evolved.

Knuckle Path
I went out of the gym to heal. Then i beat all the trainers on Route 115(?). Now i had Chives Level 18, and Acorn Level 16. I battled Team Magma with ease, and went with Mr, Briney to Dewford.

Heat road

I gave Shock Wave and Steel Wing to Guay, so he can be even more powerful. I met the reporters and beat them, but Guay was KO’ed in the process so I rushed him back to the center. On my way back I faced the winstrates, I nearly lost in the battle because I had to face them 4 times in a row. I managed to beat Meditite with Zora. Then I healed my Pokemon once more and I put Morpha in the first slot. I trained Morpha here. It was really easy to train here because it had mostly fire Pokemon as well as Machop and Grimer. I trained Morpha to Level 24, Guay to 25, and Zora to 27. Guay evolved when she reached level 25, and so did Morpha at 18. I then got a TM to make my secret base but I decided to use it later. I passed through the ashy Route 113 and struggled through the trainers and Spinda. After that I made it to Fallabor. Healed my Pokemon and proceeded. I went to Meteor falls where Aqua tricked Cosmo the scientist into giving away the meteorite. I also met Team Magma who said the were good guys even though they dressed like Aqua. Left Meteor Falls ignoring the Lunatone and Zubat that were there. Ended up in Rustboro went to the tunnel and shattered the rock in the way. The boyfriend gave me HM 04. I proceeded to Verdanturf, then Mauvile. I went up and the Aqua members that were blocking the way were gone. Allowing me to enter the cable car to Lavaridge……. But I when got to the top, Magma and Aqua’s Poochyena’s were blocking the way to the Jagged Pass; I was forced to stop Archie’s plan of destruction. I beat his minions, but they wore me down and I lost to his Golbat. I was sent back to Rustboro with half the money. I went back and with no minions to wear me down I beat Archie. He left, I took the meteorite and crossed the Jagged pass. I made it to Lavaridge and healed my Pokemon. After the gym puzzles, powerful trainers, and various trips to the center, I reached Falnnery. I managed to defeat her first Slugma with Morpha, but was KO’d but her second one (Overheats). Guay finished off the other slugma, But Torkoal power took out Guay. Zora barely was able to beat Torkoal but succeeded.

Balance road

I left the gym and May came out and gave me the go-goggles and I went off to the dessert to train for Norman. I always ran from Cacnea, but I always attacked any other Pokemon. I trained Zora to level 35, Guay and Morpha to 33. And went to Petalburg and defeated my “dad’s” minions and made it to him. Guay was defeated by the first Slaking but Morpha picked up where Guay was at and beat the Slaking but the next Slaking killed Morpha. Zora then defeated the slaking, as well as Vigoroth. After the battle, Zora evolved to Swampert.

I always deliver Steven's letter first, that way i can train in Slateport. AFter delivering the letter, I trained, boosting Chives to 20 and Acorn to 18. Next I battled all the gym trainers, boosting Nuzleaf to 19. I used Chives alone in the battle, due to Nuzleaf's weakness to Fighting. After I beat Brawly, i went to Slateport once again.

AFter arriving in Slateport, I immediately got to work on Magma. IT was a simple process, I only used Nuzleaf getting him to Level 20. After that I started training at Route 110. I caught a Female Oddish at level 13, which i named Panzy. I trained Panzy to Level 18, teaching it status effecting moves to use against the dreaded Combusken. I then also trained Chives and Nuzleaf each to Level 24.
Then it came time to battle May. It was easy at first, i took down Wailmer and Shroomish using Nuzleaf. Then I used Panzy against Combusken, causing it to sleep. I switched to CHives, who used Screech, then Quick Attack for the rest of the battle. I finally knocked it out, and Panzy grew to Level 19.

Dustox is now level 35. It knows silver wind, sludge bomb, psychic and protect. This is how I beet Norman. Vigoroth-Masquerain's bubblebeam
Slakings-Used protect when attacked, used psybeam when loafing around.
After beating Norman, I headed to Mauville City and bought psychic at the game corner. Then, I surfed to Dewford Island, where Dustox reached level 35 and learned silver wind. Finally, I got sludge bomb and taught it to Dustox.

Well, right now I have Mudkip(lvl 15), Wingull(lvl 13), and Lotad(lvl 13) on my team. I have beaten Roxanne, but it wasn't very easy, due to me not raising them a little higher, but i am planning to keep them as low level as they can be until I get Corphish, so then I don't have a crapload of training to do when I get him.

I will update again once I have beaten Brawly.

Dynamo Road Cont.
After I arrived at Mauville City, I went straight to the Pokemon Center. After that I went to train at Route 117 and caught a female Roslia, named Petal. Petal quickly grew to Level 23, and then I continued to train Panzy. Panzy evolved into a Gloom, and I trained everybody except for slave to level 26. After that I challenged the gym leader, Wattson. I took down Magnemite with Panzy's Acid and Poison Powder. Voltorb was easily beaten by Chives, and Mangeton was taken down with a combination of Leech Seed, Sopre and Mega Drain. This brought Petal to Level 27. I left Wattson's gym succesful. I went to the scientist's house to get Rock Smash. I taught Chives Rock Smash.

Heat Road
Heat Road will be by far, the hardest. My friend had a Lombre at Level 25, so i traded that for my Nuzleaf. It was a sad farewell.

Yes I know I haven't posted in quite a long time, but here we go.

I last left off training to battle Wattson, and picked up a Volbeat along the way. I raised my Pokemon to about level 22-23, except for Shedinja, who I kept at level 20. I'm not going to use Shedinja after Wattson so I wasn't wasting the time. I thought it would be smooth sailing through Wattson with Shedinja and wonder guard , but that was not the case. Super sonic killed him.

After two more tried I gave up with my shedinja strategy and went to train all my guys to level 25. I trained them one at a time, carrying one pokemon on my team and 5 zigzagoons, which got me plenty of rare candies and proteins.

Finally all my pokemon were level twenty five, and Volbeat + signal beam got me my victory.

Going north I laid waste to all the trainers in my path, and got to the ash-covered route where I repeated my zigzagoon training strategy to get all my guys to level 30. I left my Masquerain at lvl 28 nowing he would get plenty of exp vs Flannery. I headed to Fallarbor and to Meteor Falls, beating more trainers and meeting up with Magma/Aqua again. I then continued to Lavaridge.

Flannery's minions died in one hit each from Masquerain's bubblebeam. That Keckleon was the only difficult thing I fought, but he fell soon enough.

Flannery herself was a pushover. I water sported to weaken her, blasted the Slugmas away with bubblebeam, but making her waste both hyper potions on the fiery slugs. Torkoal beat ym Masquerain but Volbeat beat ti with a double team + signal beam.

And now im off to fight Norman. Im going to pass up on Armaldo, as I want to use pinsir instead.

After training my newly traded Lombre, Lilly, to Level 30, I battled Flannery for the Heat Badge. I quickly beat the two Slugmas, then switched to Panzy for Torkoal. Panzy got in a Sleep Powder, then died. But, Torkoal's Spcl Atk was down so i used Lilly to her extent. Lilly grew to Level 31. AFter this i left Flannery's gym with the Go-Go Goggles From May.

It's been a while, and It's not a big update either, I haven't been playing much lately, don't know why. Anyway. I headed to Petalburg Gym, stocking up on ,Potions Revives and X items. Most of the trainers weren't much of a challenge, but a few caused a few problems. Finally I get to Norman and he absolutley kills me. Determined to beat him I play my cards right. Boulder knocks his first Slaking out with a CH Self Destruct (what Luck). His Vigoroth is weakned by Clay, and beaten down by Kalws. His last Slaking makes a fatal error. Every turn it can attack it tries to use Focus Punch, which I ruin by hitting him. Every turn it loafs around, I used Sand Attack.

So after 6 turns it's accuracy is down to zilch, and I can start attacking every turn. A few Hyper Potions later and Norman is beaten. Onwards. I fight every trainer I can, but find training Antlion is very difficult with only Dark Moves. Still, I use the bait and switch method to level him up slowly. The weather institute proves little challenge, using Clay to fight the water types, as the rest of the team are at risk.

I heal up and get ready to take on May. Her Wailmer dies quickly, but her Grovyle decimates my team with Leaf Blade. So I decide to properly train up to atleast lv 25. And that's where I'm at. Trapinch is only lv 26, so there's a LONG way to go yet. I've also renamed my team and pokemon. Oh. I also caught a Lioone and swapped that with Zigzagoon so it can use Strength. Saves me leveling up the slave too.

Well this looked like fun so I started up a few days ago (flying) and have gone far enough to merit some kind of progress report.

After starting out in littleroot and getting through to the part where you get pokeballs, I went up to Route 103 to catch the first member of my team, Wingull! Afterwards I headed down to Rt 101 and caught a few Zigzagoon for itemfinding. Then I headed on over to Oldale, watched Wally catch his Ralts and continued on to Route 104. I searched around for a while until I found a Taillow to add to the second slot of my team (which took about 20 minutes. Curse my luck >_<). Next I moved through the forest while levelling Taillow on the local bug population and arrived in short order at the Rustboro City Gym. By now Wingull was level 15 with water gun/wing attack/growl/supersonic and quite ready to own some rock pokemon. After wingull trounced everyone in the gym I got my stonebadge.

Next I was tasked with retrieving the DEVON GOODS from team magma. So I headed east with Taillow in the lead wing attacking everything to death. I soon arrived at the cave and rescued the DEVON GOODS and Mr. Briney's PEEKO. Afterwards I headed back to brineys shack and took his boat down to Dewford.

In Dewford I went and retrieved the OLD ROD. Next I went to work catching magikarp. After some time I finally caught a lvl 7 one with an adamant personality and placed him in slot 3 of my team. Next I continued into the dewford gym with magikarp in the lead (to bait and switch for exp). Wingull and Taillow crushed the opposition with wing attack as expected. So ended my first day.

* DAY 2

Time for an update on my flying challenge. I didnt get much time to play today so I didn't get much farther.

I continued on after dewford gym and navigated up towards Steven (without flash. I dont need the light) raising my LVL 10 magikarp along the way. Eventually I blundered my way to the end, finished playing mailman and exited the cave to continue to slateport.

Upon arrival at slateport, I defeated the local trainers and edged magikarp ever closer to evolution. Then I delivered the DEVON GOODS, went to the museum and got a little more exp off the ever so incompetent Team Magma goons, allowing Taillow to evolve. Afterwards, I went to the market to sell all of my nuggets (thank you zigzagoon) and bought 3 proteins in addition to the 2 I found to feed to magikarp. Next the journey to Mauville ensued with the occassional hop back to town to refill hp. Magikarp finally evolved after I defeated May allowing me to finally start levelling him fast (no more bait and switch).

By the time I arrived in Mauville, Gyarados was level 22 and only knew bite and tackle so I knew he would horribly die along with my other pokemon (wingull and swellow) if I challenged the gym. So I set about levelling my team and getting more revives from Zigzagoon. After defeating the macho brace family and all of the trainers that I could find along with a few wild pokemon, Gyarados made it to 25 and learned Dragon Rage. With his newfound ability to actually inflict damage, I set off for the electric gym in mauville. After saving before the leader, I prepared for the worst. Surprisingly though, Gyarados swept the magnemite and voltorb out of the way with little trouble. He managed to get off a dragon rage (bringing magneton to just under 1/2 HP) before dying to a shockwave. Next I sent out Wingull as a target and used revive on Gyarados. Naturally, wingull also bit the dust and gyarados came back out to finish magneton off with another dragon rage. Much easier than I had anticipated. Now with both rock and electric gyms out of the way, it should be clear sailing until the elite four

DAY 3

After clearing out Mauville, I headed north to Fallarbor town and got the Secretpower TM along the way, which i taught to gyarados as a good temporary normal attack move. Also caught a skarmory and a swablu. After this I went down and maxed out his attack effort on Zangoose (w/ macho brace they give 4 atk effort). Then I went down through the meteor cave. After magma stole the meteorite I headed down to rustboro and back around to the top of the volcano. As anticipated, Gyarados (who is now level 35) annihilated all of the competition without taking damage. With the meteor safely in my hands, I then headed to Lavaridge, where gyarados destroyed the fire gym. Next came petalburg and gyarados again dominated.

Afterwards, I got surf and went over towards Fortree City. Along the way I caught a Tropius and a Linoone for HMslaving. Next I got the DEVON SCOPE, and headed back to Fortree, where Gyarados proceeded to sweep the gym without taking damage.

Fly... finally. Next I headed down to the Safari zone to catch the final members of my team, Doduo and Natu. Afterwards I flew around for some effort training and maxed both Doduo's and Gyarados' effort. Also taught Doduo steel wing. Then I went down to the ghost tower place and got the red orb, headed to slateport to witness the sub theft, and then back up to lilycove to clear out magma's hideout. So ended day 3.

Team after day 3

DAYS 4-6

Ugh I think I might have accidently deleted my progress log... oh well. Basically I whipped through the rest of the game until I finally made it to the E-4. Then I trained up my team for a bit at victory road and proceeded to destroy the E-4 + champion.

E-4 # 1
Opened with gyarados, switched to skarmory. Entire team killed by toxic+stall+air cutter.

E-4 # 2
Opened with Dodrio. OHKOd most of them with drill peck. Dusclops took 2.

E-4 # 3
Opened with Gyarados. D-danced a bit and swept them all.

E-4 # 4
Used skarm and dodrio. Skarm was doing pretty well until he got t-bolted. Dodrio then cleaned up until salamence and was KOd. Gyarados finished with an aerial ace.

Champion
Gyarados D-danced 6 times, ate a pecha berry to get rid of poison and then proceeded to destroy steven.

I finally beat May's Grovyle with a lot of luck. It makes the mistake of Screeching instead of attacking, and Baltoy is able to KO it with Self Destruct. No EXP, but I really don't care. Now that I can buy things in Fortree without trekking all the way back to Mauville I can train up my team. Numel evolves into Camerupt, and Trapinch finally evolves into Vibrava.

I fight through some more trainers and get the Devon Scope from Steven, before stopping off in the Safari Zone on a quest to catch Rhyhorn. Now If I only knew where the hell it was...

I'm going to do this Mono Challenge, but I have a few questions before I begin:

1) When you say one set of TMs, does that still mean we can buy (or win) the same TMs from the Game Corne, (As I plan to teach Ice Beam to a lot of my Pokemon) or are we allowed just to have one?

2) Can you capture a Pokemon to use Covet on Pokemon, as I would like a Dragon Scale for Kingdra?

If the answer is yes for both, then you'll make me very happy :D

RaZoR LeAf
13th March 2004, 9:38 AM
1) Yes of course.
2) Dunno.

-- BIG UPDATE --

After ttrekking all the way back to Mauville to change to the Mach Bike, all the way back to Safari Zone and then finding Rhyhorn and catching, it was training time. I trekked up and down Routes 119 to 121 training loads, until my team were getting better, then went to face Winona. Her flying team were hardly a challenge, with most falling to Ancient Power and Rock Blast. Skamory fell to Camerupts Fire Blast (bought the TM at Lilycove) and Alteria to other attacks. Next on the list was to conquer Mount Pyre. Inside first, using Vibrava to clean away ghosts with it's Dark attacks, then up and round the outside to find Team Aqua at the top. Those Carvanah are getting me down, i'm just thankful they don't know any water type moves.

After Archie leaves, I follow them to Slateport and then back again to Lilycove. The grunts in the secret base are little worry, and Rhyhorn gets some good experience. Finally their gone and I'm on my way to Mossdeep. The abundience of water trainers proves little worry suprisngly, and i reach the island in good time. While there I clean out the Gym of trainers, but find my team are unable to beat the leaders in their current state. So I move out and catch a Wingull, teach it FLY and head around Hoenn taking rematches from my Pokenav. Eventually, Swampert and Vibrava reach lv 40 and I go back.

Vibrava deals good damage to Lunatone with Crunch, while Swampert did some hefty damage with Surf. 'Tone put Vibrava asleep while 'Rock hit Swampy with a Psychic. Lunatone was down on health now, and while I awoke Vibrava, another Surf knocked their energy down loads. Next, I used Vibrava's Crunch on Lunatone to bring it down low, but before I could it was restored with a Hyper Potion. Fortunatly, it still lost some health from it. Then when Swampert's Surf hit, it KO'd Solrock and Critical Hit too, knocking out Lunatone! Success!

Next stop, the underwater cave.. wait. I have no diver. Five minutes and some Good Rodding later, I have a Magikarp, which I quickly train into a Gyarados. Gyarados gets taught four HMs and I deposit Swampert in the PC. Inside the cave, I work my way through and find Archie at the end again. He's not pleased to see me, but a combination of Rhyhorn's Rock Blast, Camerupt's Rock Slide and Vibrava's Dragon Breath puts his team to sleep.

Kyogre is awake and causing some trouble, so it's off to Mossdeep (which I found earlier by taking a wrong turning). Inside, I heal up and take my full team underground to see how i'd do against the behemoth fish. I started off with Claydol, who managed to survive an Ice Beam and get in a Sandstorm to subdue the rain that would surely be the death of me. Next out was Swampert, with it's resistance to warter. A couple of Mud Shots lowered Kyogre's speed somehting good, then I switch in Rhyhorn. With luck, Kyogre uses Body Slam, so I get a free chance to use Scary Face, lowering speed even more. Luckily, Hydro Pump misses so I cause some minor damage with Rock Blast. Rhyhorn is KO'd by a second Pump and out comes Vibrava, who I have Dragon Breath Kyogre in an attempt to paralyse it, but no luck. Some more switching and reviving, aswell as a Slash from Sandslash, and I finally defeat the pokemon with Vibrava and Swampert my only survivors.

Now, my team are all between the lv 35-40 mark, so it's heavy heavy training before I even consider taking on my ultimate challenge, a Water Gym Leader.

Well, I played on it for 3 hours, and this is where I got up to (I'm doing Water by the way):

Chose Mudkip, thrashed Poochyena and then thrashed May. Got Pokeballs and caught Zigzagoon as temporary slave (will replace with Tropius) and for items, and Lotad as a proper slave. Deposited both in box (didn't want to train Lotad) when I got to Petalburg. Watched boeing cut scene with Wally, then went into the Viridian Forest. Fought lots of Bug Pokemon,(and found a Slakoth... but didn't catch) and the Aua dude, and left. Fought lots more puny trainers, but couldn't fight the twins as I actually need 2 Pokemon anyways...

In Rustboro, I got Cut from the Cutter guy and taught it to Zigzagoon. Fought the trainers in the Gym and Mudkip evolved!!! Healed at Pokemon Centre and went to Roxanne. Geodude fell to one Water Gun, whilst Nosepass needed two (one of which a Critical Hit). Roxanne handed me the Stone Badge.

Exited Gym and ran after Team Aqua dude. Fought the trainers to the right of Rustboro before going into the tunnel (and being annoyed by at least 5 Whismur before even getting to the Aqua dude). Fought Aqua dude and won Devon Goods and Peeko. Mr. Briney and Devon Guy gave me loads of praise... then got Steven's letter and PokeNav off President.

Made my way down to Mr. Briney, and he gave me a lift to Dewford. Arrived in Dewford and got Old Rod off Fishing dude. Straight away caught Magikarp and trained it a bit (swtiching in to Marshtomp) in Granite Cave and the trainers in the Gym. It eventually evolved into Gyarados and I went to fight Brawly.

Had to use Marshtomp for all of it, since all Gyarados could so was Bite, Tackle and Splash (neither of each effective). Machop fell to two Water Guns, whilst Makuhita's HP made it 3. Got Knuckle Badge off Brawly and went to explore Granite Cave...

14th March 2004, 10:29 PM
Well, I'd beaten Brawly and headed off into Granite Cave. Took Lotad out of the box and taught it Flash from the Hiker. Managed to find my way around the Granite Cave and found Steven. He gave long and winded speech and said that my Pokemon were strong. (Same old routine). I handed him the letter, then made my way out of there (that place gives me the creeps).

Went back to Mr Briney, and told him to go back to Petalburg (to get the EXP Share of Mr. Stone). Went back to Petalburg, went back to Rustboro (and fought the twins) and got the EXP Share. Went back to Petalburg, got on the boat, and headed for Slateport via Dewford.

Arrived in Slateport and beat all the trainers on the beach and the Boat House. Went to Slateport itself and found Dock. Had mini conversation, then went to the museum (and paid the extortianate price of $50). Found Team Aqua and had mini battle. A mixture of Gyarados' Bite and Marshtomp's Mud Shot saw the battle through.

Put the EXP Share onto Gyarados, (as Marshtomp could see through al the battles with Electric Pokemon) and headed to Mauville. Fought many Electric trainers before bumping into May. Sent out Gyarados for Wailmer, and 4 Bites finished it off. Switched to Marshtomp for Numel, and a Mud Shot got rid of it. Switched back to Gyarados for Grovyle and 5 Bites finished it off.

May gave me the Itemfinder and I was away. Eventually arrived in Mauville. Gyarados thrashed Ralts (it never stood a chance), and Wally ran off crying. Got Acro Bike off Bike Guy, and headed for Cycling Road. Beat all the trainers (I love Marshtomp!!!) with Gyarados getting half the experience (that wouldn't have stood a chance). After the final ones, Both Pokemon were on Lv24. Went back to heal and fought the trainers in the Gym, and they grew to Lv25. Healed again, and faced Wattson.

Wattson himself was relatively easy. The Magnemite and Voltorb fell to one Mud Shot each. Magneton also fell to one, although it was a Critical Hit. Wattson handed me the Dynamo Badge and I headed to Verdanturf...

15th March 2004, 8:01 PM
Fought the trainers to the right of Verdanturf. Arrived in Verdanturf, but remembered that I needed Rock Smash, so went back to Mauville to get it - taught it to Zigzagoon.

Went back to Verdanturf, and then to the Tunnel. Used Rock Smash, couple was reunited, and lived happily ever after (and gave me HM04).

Went back to Mauville, and went north. Used Rock Smash and went north. Fought some trainers (weren't too hard), and then fought Gabby and Ty. (They weren't that hard either). Continued north and fought more trainers. Went into the Feiry Path and didn't actually find any Pokemon.

Continued up and fought more trainers, before arriving in Fallarbor. Talked to everyone (because I was bored), then continued onto Metero Falls. Caught a Lombre to use as another Slave (as Lotad can't learn Dive or Waterfall), then went into Meteor Falls. Witnessed the event, then went to Mt. Chimney.

Archie didn't prove to be that hard. Mightyena (the hardest) fell to 2 Mud Shots. Golbat fell to 2 Bites, where as Sharpedo had 2 Dragon Rages.

Picked Meteo of machine and went back to Fallarbor. Got TM27 off Prof Cozmo, and taught it to Gyarados (it FINALLY has a use). Then trekked to Lavaridge. By this time, my Pokemon were lots higher than I imagined, so I kept the EXP Share on Gyarados as Marshtomp could handle Flannery's Gym.

When I got to Flannery, both Pokemon were Lv32 (which I was shocked about). Flannery was a doddle. Both Slugma fell to 1 Mud Shot. Torkoal's hogh HP and Defense made it 6 (although she did use both her potions). Flannery handed me the Heat Badge, and I left. May came out in her smug self, and handed me the Go Goggles (which I won't need).

It probably wasn't the hardest, EVER, but it was still damn hard.

Anyways, I'd beaten Flannery and got the Go Goggles. Trekked all the way down to Petalburg, then turned the Game Boy off to eat some food. Turned it back on again and went into the Gym.

Whilst in Verdanturf, I went to the Happiness Rater and showed her Gyarados. She said "Oh, it really adores you. It can't love you anymore" and that being the highest means that Return will be strongest. That would ultimately be my strategy to win the Gym - use Return to its full advantage.

The plan actually turned out quite well. I put the EXP Share onto Marshtomp (as Gyarados would be doing much of the fighting). Now I was focusing on trying to get as little experience as possible as it would be harder to train up my newly caught Pokemon. I went the quickest route (down the middle) and the only real trouble was the Zangoose, which needed 2 Returns in order to kill it.

I eventually reached my Dad, but went back to heal (and realised I hadn't got any Hyper Potions - DAMN!). WWent back and found my Dad and did a potential Save before speaking to him:

The first battle was the worst and longest. He sent out Slaking and I sent out Gyarados. Gyarados attacked first with Return, and this took off about half the HP. Slaking then attaacked with a Facade, which took off half of my HP. I hoped he wouldn't use his Hyper Potions as I clicked the Return button, but (surprise surprise) he did. Well, at least Return took off half his HP again. This pattern of healing and Returning carried on for another 4 turns, before he eventually fainted. Then he sent out Vigroth. I used Return and it took off enough HP so that it was in the red. Vigoroth used Fury Swipes - hit me 3 times, and that brought my HP into the red. I used another Return, and Vigoroth also bit the dust. Now (what I thought was the challenge) the Slaking. This turned out to be one of the easiest. I used Return (I was surprised that I hadn't ran out of PP), but he came in with Focus Punch. Return hit him, and Focus Punch didn't work. Return knocked off about 1/3 of the HP. I used Return again, and what do you know? Slaking used Focus Punch. It failed, and Slaking's HP was nearly in the red. One more Return, and Slaking bit the dust.

After that colossal battle, Dad finally gave me the Balance Badge and Facade, and I went to Wally. Picked up Surf from Wally's Dad, taught it to Swampert - happy days!

Now that the Rustboro Tunnel was clear, I went back to Rustboro - through the tunnel and into Verdanturf. Went to Mauville, and fought the trainers to the right of it. Surfed over to the other side and got the Good Rod!!!!!!! (This makes me happy). Immediately start fishing (whilst Gabby and Ty look on in what seems like awe) and on the 2nd try, I see a Carvanha. Amazingly, I still have 1 Pokeball left, so Swampert uses Tackle and it brings the HP down into the red (what pathetic defenses). Use the Pokeball, and Carvanha is caught! Put EXP Share on Carvanha (and teach it Surf) and I head off into the wilderness.

I decided to use Sahara and Chives as my first double battlers. Chives quickly fell to Solrock, and Sahara managed to get in about 20 damage before fainting as well. Next I brought out Panzy and Petal. They work really well together, for some odd reason. Panzy killed Lunatone with a couple of P
Petal Dances, and Petal Giga Drained Solrock into oblivion. At the end of the battle, only Petal and Lombre were left.

I'm doing the Flying-type challenge. (day 1)Chose Mudkip, owned Pochiena and Brendan. I then had to catch three Wurmples (ARRGH!)before getting a Silcoon. During this process, I caught a Wingull and ditched Mudkip in the box. Watched Wally catch Ralts. (day 2) Silcoon evolved into Beautifly. Caught a Taillow in Petalburg Woods, leveled up. Grunt stood no chance against level 7 Taillow that had never battled before.(day 3) Leveled up some more. Yawn. Went up against Roxanne after an hour of this. Beautifly almost knocked out Geodude, but one Rock Throw and it was down. Wingull's Water Gun made quick work of Geodude and Nosepass. Beat Grunt again with same Taillow, only now Level 9. Went to Dewford and caught a Zubat. It was taking too much time to level up, so I went to Slateport and am now leveling up there, having beaten every trainer there.

Well, now I was going into the wilderness that is Route 119. Having fought the minimalistic amount of trainers in the tall grass and surrounding area, I eventually made it to the Weather Centre. Fought Team Aqua (again, avoiding as many of them as possible), and got the Castform off the guy...

En route, found May again, and had duel. She sent out Wailmer, I sent out Gyarados. 1 Return finished it. SHe sent out Grovyle, I kept Gyarados. Grovyle attacked first with a Leaf Blade. It took off about 25 of my HP. I used Retrun - dead Grovyle. She sent out Numel, I sent out Marshtomp, One Mud Shot finished it (Numel always had pathetic defenses). May started crying and gave me HM02. She ran off and I headed to Fortree (and managed to avoid the Ninjas). Healed and yada yada, then went to the PokeMart and bought some Pokeballs, then went into the grass and eventually found a Tropius. Caught it and used it as my new Slave. By this time, Carvanha had evolved into Sharpedo and Marshtomp had evolved into Swampert, and everyone was one high levels!

I could probably beat Winona with my team, but this was the only opportunity I was going to get of catching a Feebas, so I didn't want to waste it. Got the Old Rod out, and started to fish by the bank below the yellow path...

2 days later...

Eventually found Feebas, it was below the waterfall (the highest one). I only found it after I had gone down in the opposite direction though... anyways. Got the Good Rod out (to catch a relatively high level one) and caught one on the first try. Now all there was was evolution...

I needed to get Ice Beam from the Game Corner, so I headed back down to Mauville. Got Ice Beam and taught it to Sharpedo. Headed to Slateport (better berries than Verdanturf), and got out all my berries. 8 Oran Berries, 2 Chesto Berries and 2 Pinap Berries (I had others, but those were good at Beauty). After about half an hour, of blending. I eventually fed them to Feebas. They only just maxed out the Beauty stat, so all there was to do was evolve it. I taught it Surf, and battled a number of wild Pokemon in the Grass, before it EVOLVED!!!! Now I have 4 Pokemon in my roster... and on my way to fight Winona

I have totally forgot about this.

Feather Road

I retrieved surf and taught it to Guay because Morpha knew Bubblebeam and Zora was going to learn Muddy Water later. I went straight through east of Mauvile to meet the reporters and defeat them.I picked up a good rod I saw Steven again then went to fish in the home of feebas (not to look for feebas but for carvanha), found him quite easily. Caught it and named it Gyorg. Faught some trainers with both flying and grass Pokemon. Barely survived. I went to the weather institute, I went to bed before facing the Aqua invasion, Gyorg was doing good here and so was Morpha. I defeated Shelly with Zora, who learned Muddy Water, and Morpha. I went to bed again and left. I faced May again and beat her Numel with Morpha, Wailmer with Gyorg and Grovyle with Guay. She gave me HM 02 Went to Fortree, to heal and to find the Gym blocked so I left to find the reporters again, Gyorg and Zora wiped the floor with them and I left to find Steven and I beat a kecleon to prove myself to Steven. He gave his Devon Scope and I went all the way to Lilycove (trainers and all). I healed and found May again. Defeated her Swellow and Numel with Morpha, Wailmer with Gyorg, and Grovyle with Guay. Went inside the store to sell all the neggets and proteins I had and bought a Blizzard TM for the Gym. Taught Fly to Guay and flew to Mauvile, bought enough coins to get Ice Beam, Flew to Slateport and went to the abandoned ship. On the way Gyorg evolved. I went in and got another Ice Beam and went out. Flew to Fortree and Taught Blizzard to Gyorg, taught Zora and Morpha Ice Beam. Battled Wynona, defeated her Swellow with Morpha, beat Pelipper with Guay, Skarmory with Zora, and Altaria with Gyorg.

Mind Road

Flew to Lilycove and went fished until I found a Wailmer. I found it at level 28 and caught it (I named it Jabu-Jabu). I fought the Aqua’s in Mt. Pyre, but Archie escaped to Slateport, when we went there, he already left with the submarine. I went to their base in Lilycove, beat the Aqua members, took their Nugget and Master Ball, and defeated Matt, but he was able to hold me up so Archie could escape. Went all the way to Mosdeep, fending off all the swimmers, Wingulls, and Tentacools. Went in Steven’s house and he gave me HM 08, and I taught it to Jabu-Jabu, taught Strength to Gyorg, and taught rock smash to my HM slave Zigzagoon. I beat all of Liza and Tate’s minions and trained Wailmer to level 37. Went to the Shoal Cave and caught a level 32 Spheal (Freezard). Battled Liza and Tate with Morpha and Gyorg. Gyorg’s Crunch and Morpha’s Bubblebeam were enough to pummel the sun and the moon.

Rain Road

After the win in Mosdeep Gym I went in pursuit for Team Aqua. I deposited Guay for my HM Slave Zigzagoon. I dived down and went staright to the Seafloor Cavern. Faced the Aqua and solved the problems. Jabu-Jabu and Freezard evolved. I faced Shelly and beat her. Went on to defeat Archie, but it did not matter because he got to unleash Kyogre anyway. I went to Sootpolis and healed . The Gym leader Wallace led me to the cave of orgin and I went through the treacherous maze until I found Kyogre. I threw my Master Ball and caught it. I nicknamed it Nayru. I then healed went went straight to the Sootpolis Gym (reached Wallace quickly because I remembered the puzzles). I used Morpha against Luvdisc (victory), Gyorg vs Whiscash (loss), Jabu-Jabu vs Whiscash (victory), Zora vs Seaking (victory), Freezard vs Sealeo (switched to Jabu-Jabu), Jabu-Jabu vs Sealeo (loss), Nayru vs Sealeo (victory), and finally Nayru vs Milotic (victory).

Hi, I'm new, yatta, yatta, yatta.

I'd like to do fire, I play REEEEEEEALY fast, so I might be done pretty quickly.
I'll start when I get the chance and post details then. If I get through it quick enough, I might do grass or bug afterwards. I'll be playing Sapphire version, I might have duplicate Pokémon (eg: Catching a Torkoal, raising it, catching another Torkoal, raising it), I'll list first battles and such.

Bye for now.

Bye.

Bye.

(Cough).

Yes... farewell for now.

1st April 2004, 2:02 PM
Got Torchic. It's a female!
I battled Poochyena and won easily.
I nicknamed Torchic: Achamo.
I trained Achamo to Lv7, then thrashed May to get to Lv8
Dun! Dun! Dun! I got running shoes! (...)
Achamo reached Lv11 through trainers and wild Pokemon!
I caught Poochyena, not as a team Pokemon, just a breeding boy
Poochyena is called Farrala
Farrala from Lv2 is now Lv5
Wally caught his damn Ralts
Wow! Farrala beat a Seedot, gained one level (Lv6) and then beat a Lv8 Taillow!
Lv8 and feeling fine, beat a Lv9 Poochyena from Team Aqua and went to Lv9 myself!
I got da' great ball
Daburubatorude! Moerushita... (cough) Double battle, I won Farrala's on one health, gotta go heal
30 Pokeballs and 3 Premierballs, life is goooood
I lost against Roxanne's Geodude, but I started training again.
My Achamo is now Lv16
My Farrala is now Lv10
I beat both of Roxanne's Pokemon
Achamo and Farrala both gained one level!
Why is it whenever I battle Team Aqua, that their Poochyena is always the same level as mine? By the way Achamo is now Lv18.
Pokénabimotte! (Pokénav) Woo!
Achamo is now Lv20, it now has an everstone attached... oh I forgot, I'm in Dewford now, after saving a Wingull, getting some Devon goods, getting that Pokénav from Devon Corp, then Wingull's owner gave me a ride to Dewford, then I delivered some letter to Steven and got the Steel Wing TM.
I pecked all the trainers in Dewford gym off my list, but then Brawly beat me! Achamo was low on HP and Farrala is weak to fighting moves, but I went back and won! A couple pecks from Achamo was all needed.
Achamo now equals Lv21!
Now, to Slateport.
I battled a trainer talking about fire, then she sent out a Goldeen...
A Marill had a chance to beat me, but just kept on using tail whip! Dumb Marill!
I beat some trainers and got some soda pop!
I looked around for Capt. Stern, got inside the museum, got the Thief TM and then battle some Team Aqua members.
I gave the parts to Capt. Stern then headed off to Mauville.
Abiding love. Skitty used attract on my Farrala, it worked, but Farrala ignored the efforts, looks like he's falling for Achamo... I'm sooo happy!
Wow! Achamo beat May's Marshtomp using Sand-Attack and Peck and Farrala beat May's Numel on 2HP!
Levels are now Farrala: Lv19, Achamo: Lv25, Achamo learnt Fire Spin!
I trained for a while, battled Wally for the first time (OHKO!) and trained some more.
Farrala, now Mightyena, Swagger, Rock Smash, Sand-Attack, Bite
Achamo, still Torchic, Fire Spin, Peck, Sand-Attack, Ember
Nearly breeding time!
I lost against Wattson, now to try again!
That time was easy, Voltorb didn't self-destruct on me again... phew
FINALLY! I caught a Numel!
After a Pokéball, I used a Great Ball and captured a Torkoal!
ALRIGHT! I caught Slugma!
I also got an Acro Bike!
Achamo and Farrala are now in daycare doing (cough)
I got Achamo's egg, and began cycling!
Now, my entire team
Slugma Lv16, Yawn, Smog, Ember, Rock Throw
Numel, Lv16, Growl, Tackle, Ember
Torkoal, Lv16, Ember, Smog, Curse, Smokescreen
Torchic, Lv5, Growl, Swagger, Rock Smash, Sand-Attack
Achamo (Torchic), Lv28, Peck, Sand-Attack, Ember, Quick Attack
I entered a cute contest with my new Torchic... I got no hearts first round, due to having no Pokéblocks, but I maxed out on the second round battles! Needless to say, I WON! TORCHIC WON!

1st April 2004, 2:16 PM
After I left Dewford I went to Slateport and I hit the beach

Slateport beach-Battled two Sailors one named Huey (forgot the others name), got some soft sand from this little girl, battled this tuber named Ricky and a few more peole in the beach house no biggies here Power was gettin low even though I was battlin a bunch of water types I figured the ember attack + blaze would be more power full than the double kick or peck so I was shootin fire everywhere.

Slateport-There was a whole bunch of Magma's standin outside this buildin and they wont let me in which sucks but I needed to find Captain whats his name anyway, the guy at the pokemon fan club said my Combusken sucks :( oh well. so I finally get to enter the buildin and see a whole bunch of Magma's gues this means we about to throw down, so i whipped up on a few Magmas one of'em had a numel and Im jealous :( (got a theif tm from a scared magma)

Route 110-Found the bike trail thing but I dont have a bike :( oh well, battled this old women named Isabel then walked into some wierd trick house but evidently I needed cut and I didnt want to give that to Combusken (see what you get for takin the hard road)

Route 103-Torched this aroma lady's Roselia, and this guy named Miguel's skitty, and battled a fisherman that had his line snagged.

Back on route 110-had a battle with a youngster and ran into May: first she sent out a Shroomish which I easily embered to death, then she sent out Marshtomp who I hit with a double kick which only did half damage she hit me with a mud slap which took my life down by almost half and lawered my speed then she hit me with a water gun which almost killed me but I put it down with a second double kick then she sent out a numel which I killed easily with a double kick. Had a couple more battles but nothing exciting.

Mauvile-Got the rock smash tm from this scientist guy and had another battle with Wally he didnt stand a chance, got my bike and hit the pokemon center bfore my next gym battle. Entered electic gym: Battled 3 gym junkies but they arnt good enough to mention Watson: I snet out Combusken, he sent out Magnimite I embered it down easy next he sent out a voltorb who hit me with a spark before I could hit him and paralyzed Combusken (those things are fast I was 18 levels higher then it was) I hit him with a double kick and killed it, then sent out a magneton, it confused Combusken (parafusion Im in trouble :( ) I looked in my bag and found a paralyze heal (yesssssss) at least Im not paralyzed and confuzed anymore then magneton hit Combusken with a shockwave (which hurt Im already low on hp) then Combusken shoots a ember through his confusion that smolders Magneton into submission I win!! (that was a tough battle)(got the dynamo badge) after the battle I hit the pokemon center one last time and hit the road.

route 111-I found this place called the Winstrate's house they thought their ballz were badder than mine so I crushed all of them muhahahaha (put the macho brace on Combusken) I didnt want to do it but I had to make Combusken learn rock smash to move on :( . Had a few more battles Combusken is twice all of their levels so the brace doesnt hurt its speed advantage :)

Route 112-WOOOT I finally caught a Numel, had a few battles to test out my new poke nothin big, I figured I would go ahead and try to evolve Combusken then start training Numel hard later. I also figured It was time to take a break and i would stop at the nearest pokemon center.

Firery Path-I caught a Slugma and a Torkal!!! its like this lil area right here is the only place to find fire pokemon but at least a got a lil team now Combusken got poisoned in the battle with Torkal gonna have to hurry to that pokemon center

Route 112-Few battles tryna hurry to that pokemon center, Luckily I found an old lady's house where I can rest my pokes :)

Route 113-Few battles nothing that out of the ordinary except for those ninjas jumpin out of the dirt :\
and the first wild skarmory ive ever seen and I finally evolved Combusken to Blaziken (Blaziken learned blaze kick)

Fallabor town-Finally found a pokemon center that I think Im going to rest at till tommorrow Blaziken's already eveolved so I can work on the next pokemon tommorow (prolly be Torkoal) I can tell the Elite 4 is going to be hell with an all fire team unless I am at least 20 levels above all their pokemon Torkoal's white smoke seems like its gonna work good with its curse that way its stats cannot be lowered which would make him a sweeper, I also think that exploiting burns is gonna help alot like slugma's flame body Im thinkin I would switch him in whenever Im about to get hit with a physical attack might have to bulk up his defense and special defense with stat enhancers.

Fossil Guys house-(Got tm28) then he told me to go to the desert to find fossils

Route 114-Beat a couple of pissed off fisherman but decided to go back to the ash area to train up numel,torkoal, and slugma

Back to route 113- trained until I got bored of killing spina's,Skarmory's, and sandshrew's and decided it was time to find a new spot to train for higher level pokes and a change of scenery(Torkoal lvl 20, Numel lvl 30, slugma lvl 20, blaziken lvl 36)

Route 114- Beat a picknicker named Nacy with Torkoal's body slam, beat these twins with Camelrupt and Numel but I used magnitude and forgot it would hit Torkoal too :( so I had to rush to the pokemon center to heal Camelrupt, beat a camper named Shane, beat a pokemaniac with a aaron, beat a Kindler named Bernie, beat a kicker that knocked out Torkoal so I had to rush back into town to reach a pokemon center,and beat another hicker (this was actually a good battle)

Meteor Falls-So many zubats yuk! Torkoal's ember kills them all :) ran into team Magma and team Aqua they took off to mt.Chimey

Route 115- though Im sure Im gonna have to follow team magma I got trainin to do so Im still lookin for a nice spot to train. Beat this black belt named Nob, won a battle with a battle girl named Cindy Torkoal knocked himself out after being confused by her Meditite's confusion and Im far from a pokemon center :( , beat a collector's seviper easily with Numel's magnitude

Rustboro-Ok this was unexpected Im back in Rustboro looks like I did a big circle :( , oh well off the mountain I guess but first I had to heal up Torkoal and slugma

Rustuf tunnel helped this dude get with his girlfriend by smashin up some rocks, he gave me hm04 in return (strength), hmmm need to catch a hm slave, of course before I could leave I had to battle a hiker named mike who had all Geodudes bad news for Torkoal :( but after cursing up a couple times I was able to sweep his whole team :)

Vanderhuff-good now I can get a vaucher to compete in beauty contest, Stopped by the pokemon center, Wally told me he's going to kill me when his pokes are stronger ;) I bet, got a contest pass and entered Blaziken into the tough contest I lost :( oh well, no time to try to win it again gotta go to try to find a better training spot

Route 117- Lots of unescapable battles (not that I ever skip battles anyway, beat a breedr named Isaac, a bug catcher with a nincanda, Dustox, and a beautifly, a Triathlete named Maria with a doduo, another pokemon breeder girl with a full team of 6 pokes (all low levels), caught a Marril (figured I could use it to surf later on, battled two girls named anne and meg, and beat another triathlete named Dylan with a Doduo

Mauville,route 111, route 112-Stopped by the Mauville pokemon center to put Marwill in a box and heal up my pokes.

mt.Chimmney-Saw a big battle going on between aqua and magma, I had to battle a couple magmas, when I reached the magma leader I realised I was battling for a meteorite. Battle with magma leader:I sent out Torkoal he sent out Mightyena, my white smoke ability stopped Myghtyen's intimidate from droppin my attack. I cursed up 3 times and let his mightyena bite me a few times but now my attack was really high sweeping time :) , but he roared Tokoal out after I hit him with the first body slam :( luckily he brought in Blaziken even better hehehe, he tried to heal it with super potion but my blaze kick sent it packing, he then sent out Camelrupt (Im jealous) so I used a double kick on it which killed it after that he sent in Golbat so I switched to Numel I hit him with 2 embers he hit with 2 wing attacks then he used super potion :( I hit it with a takedown thinking that would finish it off but it didnt and only left me with 3 hp so I switched to Torkoal seeing how his defense is so high it would hurt him too much to ake a wing attack but Golbat used bite, I thought he was going to take me out with the next wing attack but it left me with 4 hp and I hit him with a body slam I'd won. The team Aqua guy told me thank you so does that mean team aqua are good guys? Had a few battles down the hill but my pokemon are all hurt except Blaziken and I need to find a pokemon center fast.

Lavaridge-Explored the hot springs and found a gym but I dont want to go in until all my pokes are lvl 30 my plan is to boost them up 10 lvls after every gym match, so I went back to where I found these fire pokes in the first place, mt.Pyre to train until the were all at least lvl 30.

Mt.Pyre-Ok everybody's lvl 30 or higher now time to go see about that gym :)

Lavaridge- Back and Im ready for the gym, I figured out as soon as I walked in that this was another puzzle gym like Sabrinas I might be at this for a while :( Enter the gym: its late so Im not gettin into much detail tonight but the battle with flannery was easy my slugma killed her 2 slugmas and Camelrupt took care of her Torkoal......whos the fire poke master now Biznatch lol j/k got the go googles from May so i guess its off to the desert.

Desert- This place is deffinitely NOT fire pokemon friendly the sandstorm in the battles doesnt help much either.

I'm gonna start a mono type team challenge too, with water pokémon. BUt I've got a question. If your pokémon is a water type, but it evolves into another type(not water) but it has water attacks, is that ok? I'm talking about Surskit- Masquerain.

My team would be at the end of the game:
-Swampert
-(Masquerain)/Tentacruel
-Lanturn
-Walrein
-Pelipper
-Crawdaunt/Starmie

I'll keep a report :D

Started last night and picked Ground Challenge because Earth pwnz. o.0 Picked Mudkip for obvious reasons and have been playing since a bit =/. I got Mudkip up to level 18 by the time I got to Roxanne because I carried 5 ziggys with me(yay for rare candy). Got to Dewford. Caught Geodude. Leveled up to level 22. Beat Brawly with the help of a little Magnitude. Then I went through everything, got to Mauville, beat Wattson, got Rock Smash, caught a Numel. Training Numel to level 26.

Status: 3 Badges.

Pokemon:

Marshtomp Lvl. 28 @ nothing

Mud Shot
Water Gun
Tackle
Bide

Graveller Lvl 28 @ nothing

Tackle
Self Destruct
Rock Throw
Magnitude

Numel Lvl. 20 @ nothing

Tackle
Ember
Magnitude
Growl

3 Ziggys. Oh by the way, I ran into the two on two trainer people before I had a chance to catch another ground pokemon, and a zigzagoon was automatically placed into battle. I tried not to fight with it and so just switched the Zigzagoon with another one and had Mudkip do the fighting until all the Zigzagoon fainted.

Future note: Going to get Trapinch, Rhyhorn and Barboach. I don't know if I can catch Barboach with an old rod though. and where can I get the Super Rod? or even Good Rod?

Whoa, I haven't updated in a really long time, and I have beat the Elite 4 and am now searching for Latias. I am starting over my challenge as a Ground Trainer.

I chose a Mudkip, luckily it was a female. I beat the Poochyena with ease, and continued on to Route 103, where I beat May with my Level 7 Mudkip, named Moana. Moana means Ocean in Hawaiian. Next I continued on to Petalburg City, where I helped Wally catch his Ralts. After this I trained Moana to Level 10, and entered the Forest of Petalburg.

12th April 2004, 12:08 AM

No trading for pokemon, but you can trade to get pokemon that are trade only like Machamp, but only if it was originaly from the game that your're using (I think this is how it works, this is my understanding of the rules)
__________________________________________________ ______________

On my challenge, I just caught a Tallow, Edit: After 15-20 minutes of fighting, Nicarta finally beat Nosepass and Roxane (Wingull 1hitKO'ed Geodude with Water Gun) Edit 2: I beat Brawley, Wingull did it all by its self, since Tallow and Nicada were quickly disposed of, Machop was actually harder then Makutia.

Tallow: Level 14 attacks: Wing Attack, Growl, Focus Energy, and Quick Attack

Nacarda: Level 14 attacks: Scratch, Leech Life, Harden, and Sand-Attack

Wingull: Level 15 attacks: Growl, Water Gun, Supersonic, and Wing Attack

I've beaten my rival, she wasn't easy though, Wailmer gave me a lot of trouble, and KO'ed Nicarda, but it had sand-attacked it to the lowest accuracy, allowing Wingull to finnish it, and it grew a level. Next she sent out Numel, and I left Wingull out, and it beat Numel with one water gun, next she sent out Grovile, and I switched to Tallow, but Grovile attacked first with a Pursuit doing a good amount of damage, then Tallow attacked with Wing Attack, also doing a good amount of damage, knowing Grovile would attack first, I used Quick Attack, which wasn't enough to finnish Grovile, and it Pursuited, causing Tallow to faint. Leaving it up to Grovile, vs. Wingull, Wingull finnished it with one Wing Attack, leaving me with the win, and Wingull with another Level gain. Edit: Yeah! Arrived in Mauvile! Now I can finally get a bike! But the gym leader will be a pain! Edit 2: Got Rock Smash, and taught it to Zigzagagoon. Edit 3: Nicarda evolved into Ninjask! Deposited Sejendia though Edit 4: Tallow evolved into Swellow!

My pokemon status

Wingull: Level 23: Attacks: Wing Attack, Water Gun, Supersonic, and Mist

Swellow: Level 23: Attacks: Wing Attack, Double Team, Focus Energy, and Quick Attack

I went to Slateport and trained Granite from Level 10 to Level 20, and Moana was trained to Level 23.

I decided to make a grass team because there are a lot of grass pokemon at the beginning. That and I'm playing sapphire.
Got a treecko and beat the cheese out of the poochyena. Got to oldale town at level 7. Stocked up on healing. Creamed my rival. YAY! RUNNING SHOES! Caught a zigzagoon for pickup+future hm slave. My journey is pretty uneventful so far.

Edit: Got some new things. Caught a lotad. Doing the switchout thing to level up lotad. With lotad, I'm not so weak against fire because lotad is both grass and water.
Pickup is mean. I have my treecko at level 10 and my lotad at level 6 and I still don't have any free items. Poop. I plan on leaving route 102 once both my pokemon are at level 10.

Woah I haven't updated since Wattson. Well I leveled up Numel, made my way to Lavaridge, caught Sandshrew. I beat Flannery and then with a hard effort I beat Norman. I went to Winona and beat her too. By then I had Swampert, Sandslash and Camerupt. Graveler was stil Graveler. o.o;; I decided to head over to Safari Zone and catch a Rhyhorn. Which I did. Then I spent time leveling it to level 42 so it evolved into Rhydon. Then, after I beat Team Magma at Mt. Pyre and stuff, I went to Mossdeep and beat the twins. Then I did the whole Groudon thing and caught him. Will use Groudon against E4. Beat Wallace. He was supposed to be hard. He was. He knocked out Camerupt and Graveler in one hit but not before he was down to his last two Pokemon. I remeber I defeated his fourth with Swampert and he had Milotic left and I had Swampert and Rhydon left. He used potions on Milotic but I brought its speed down with Mud Shot. Then I got it down to a bit more than half, brought out Rhydon, prayed to god it was fast enough for its Thunderbolt to finish Milotic and... my prayers were answered. I beat Wallace, got my badge and am on my way to E4 now.

I started a Mono-Dark a few days ago.

I started with Treecko and beat Brendan. I caught a Seedot, a Poochyena, and 4 Zigzagoons for items. I found out that Seedot's Bide stinks, so I only used Poochyena until I got the TM for Bullet Seed. Seedot totally OWNED Roxanne, but I didn't evolve it for two reasons: 1: I want it to learn Synthesis. 2: I needed a non-dark for Brawly, who creamed me. Dissapointed, I headed for Slateport without the Knuckle Badge. I have just beat Team Magma in the Oceanic Musem.

Then I was finding for a Nincada until I found it, caught him, it was at Lv 6 and I raised him to level 10 and I raised Milagro to level 16. I went to the island (I don't remember it's name) to beat Brawly, beated all the trainers and Brawly with just the gust of the wings of my Beutifly and it learned Stun Spore.
I went to the cave where Dustox grew up 1 Lv to Lv 17 and it learned Protect.

That was all my day. Sorry about the English? I'm recently learning this languaje.

If your pokemon are high enough, you can beat Brawly with Nuzleaf and Mightyena.

Well, I decided to take the challenge and use only water pokemon, mostly due to the fact that they're my favorite type.

I chose Mudkip in the beginning (of course) and named it Rayne (which will make much more sense once I teach it Rain Dance). I beat my rival's Treecko with no trouble after leveling Rayne up to level 8, then went on a search for a Wingull. After about an hour I found one that suited me, a level 3 female one with a mild nature who I named Breeze.

I traveled to Petalburg City, beating all the trainers along the way, watched Wally catch his Ralts, and then caught a zigazoon to be my HM slave in the future.

After that I headed west of Petalburg City and beat the two trainers there. I am now preparing to enter Petalburg Woods.

Update for Dark:
While beating the trainers on route 110, Paralell evolved into Mightyena. After beating Brendan without any trouble, I beat Brawly and evolved Angle into Nuzleaf. When I reached Mauville, I (surprizingly) beat Wattson on my first try. I recived the Macho Brace from the Winstrates, and attached it to Paralell. Avoiding the trainers, (so I could save the EXP for newly-caught Pokemon) I made my way to Mt. Chimney. I wasted quite a few Super Potions on Maxie, but beat him on my first try. Flannery was stupid, I easily beat the two Slugmas with Paralell, and Torkoal used Overheat so much that it's Sp. Atk became almost nil. Afthe Reviving Parallell, I clobbered it. Finally, I caught a Cacnea (Scalene) an the desert, which I am currently raising.

In the other Monotype challenges you are allowed to use the starter until you catch a Pokemon of the type you choose. So, going against the rule that we can only start with one of seven different Pokemon types, I decided to choose Steel.

I began with Mudkip, which'd allow me to beat Roxanne (hopefully) quickly, and progressed through the game per usual. I took care not to fight as much trainers as physically possible, which really was only one or two. However, whenever I got into a random Pokemon battle, I took the opportunity to train because I knew I wasn't going to beat Roxanne with a Lv. 6 Mudkip (it'll get to be level six if you choose to beat your rival in the first battle which is nearly impossible to lose ;D). A trick to avoid battles: Walk don't run, Trainers seem to automatically turn whenever you run past.

Got to Rustburo City, headed straight to Roxanne and kicked her sorry keister. Ran out, busted up the Team Magma member, and RAN to Briney so I could finally get to Rock Tunnel where I FINALLY caught Mawile and Aron, and got to Stephen

*yawn*

I'll get them trained tommorow . . .

The saga continues~!

After catching Aron and Mawile, a thought dawns on me: Brawly is going to be REALLY tough to beat. ;_; So, since I found Stephen, I decided to skip past him for now and head to Slateport for trainin'

Got to Slateport, got nailed by the first sailor and he has -- if you remember -- a Machop, Lv. 14. -_- So, I got slayed by his Machop, which gave me all the more reason to fear Fighting types at the moment.

Returned back to Slateport and got the bright idea to avoid THAT trainer. Unfortunately for me, I found out another trainer on the beach has a Machop, except his is Lv. 12. After using Mawile's Fake Tears and then Bite (she's at Lv. 14 now), I finally was able to beat my first fighting-type . . . YAAAAY!!!

Got to Slateport, and did the thing there. Afterwards, starting heading North to Mauville and finally got to my favorite training spot -- Rt. 117. Now, for those that don't know, Rt. 117 has one of the easiest ways of getting experience: Lv. 14 Roselias. Each of those gives up 280 Exp. per shot, and aren't that hard to find. Considering that Lv. 24 Linoones give up 400 Exp. This is a very good deal.

So, I train Aron and Mawile to Lv. 20 and decide that maybe its time to go fight Brawly. I did so, and I beat out his entire troup with (mostly) Mawile, and one of the Gym Leaders I was worried about went down.

*phew*

I was bored so I thought i'd take up the Normal mono-challenge.
So as soon as I had got rid of my starting pokemon and caught a zigzagoon i went straight into training. I trained it up to Lvl 13 and moved on to get a Slakoth.
Soon I was ready to take on the first Gym Leader after experiencing the magic of pickup (i've had 3 rare candies, 3 nuggets, 11 super potions and a load of other stuff so far).

The first gym leader is a pig but I managed to beat her with a Lvl 20 Vigoroth and Lvl 20 Linoone.
I mainly used Linoone's headbut.
Once that had finished i headed off to dewford and taught Vigoroth cut on the way (shudder - but it was over scratch)
I soon arrived at dewford and i couldn't be bothered to train so i just mashed the fighting gym into the ground after delivering the letter and went on.
My current squad is:
Vigoroth Lvl: 24
Linoone Lvl: 22

After raising Congruent and Acute, I headed for Fortree. I skipped Wiona, and caught an Absol (Obtuse) on route 120. I went to the Safari Zone to get Solarbeam for Angle, but I found I didn't have a Pokeblock Case (Would put the sad face smiley here, but it won't let me.).At this point, I was so angry I plugged my GBA SP into the wall and let it run for about 6 hours. After that, I went back to Slateport and got the Pokeblock Case.

Wow... I haven't posted in ages... I beat the Flying Challenge, I've started on Fighting, and I'm almost to Rusturf Tunnel. Roxanne was easier than ever, as Torchic had been battling enough early on to get to lvl 12 without Wild Pokemon battles, though that made it hard to catch Shroomish, and in the end, I didn't even need Combusken. Anyway, this time I'll keep this up instead of just leaving it in the dust like last time.

Finally got Solargeam, taught it to Angle. CLOBBERED Wiona with Congruent's Ice Beam, And headed for Lilycove. After beating Team Magma an Mt. Pyre, I caught a Wingull and taught it fly so I could fly to Slateport and back, then deposited it in the PC. I hurried through the Magma hideout (Acute rocked here), and headed for Moosdeep. Using a combination of Angle and Acute for Liza & Tate, they knocked out Angle with a Solarbeam from Solrock, so I clobbered them with Paralell. I dived down to the Seafloor Cavern, saving the Swimmers for the Sunny Weather phase, so Angle will PULVERIZE them (it's behind in EXP). I an about to battle Maxie for the final time.

Day 2
- my water type challenge

After beating Roxanne, I headed off to save the Devon Goods. Entering the tunnel and defeating the Aqua Grunt with Rikku(Wingull) using Wing Attack was easy. He fled and Mr. Briney came and went. I saw the Devon Salesman again and he brought me to see Mr. Stone.

He thanked me and gave me the POKENAV, then I left and Headed for Dewford.

I headed straight for Granite Cave and trained. Wingull grew to level 16 and Mudkip evolved into Marshtomp. I put Surskit and Lotad in the P.C. and caught a Zigzagoon(Route 102) for CUT/ROCK SMASH ;) )

I headed to the Gym and they were easily defeated by Wingull.
Delivered the Letter to Steven in the dark and returned to Mr. Stone for EXP.SHARE (probaly for Surkit..)

Next I headed to the Beach and that's where I'm training.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Day 1
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chose Mudkip as my starter and thrashed poochyena . Nicknamed the 'lil guy Cronos . Trained him to level 8 and faced May, beating her with ease . Proceded to Petalburg City after aquiring pokedex , helped Wally capture Ralts . Contiunued on through Petulburg woods , defeating all trainers with mudkip . Moved onto route 104 : Defeated all trainers (no double battle as I only have Mudkip.) with ease except one . The trainer used two grass types , Lotad and Shroomish : They foucused on Absorbing ( 4X Damage !) Cronos but by using both my potions and the trainer ordering several takles I scraped through , Mainly due to the fact Mudkip was twice their level . Moved on to Rustboro City . . .

After healing up I went onto the gym and faced both trainers causing Cronoos to level to 16 , making him evolve and learn Mud Shot . Next I headded out of town , battling all the trainers on route 116 , raising Marshtomp to level 18 . Returned to the Gym to fight Roxanne KOed Geodude in two hits , followed by Nosepass in three hit's . Marshtomp grew to level 19 ! (He seems to be growing in stats wise ok . Increasing in + 2 in most stats . As opposed to the normal + 1 ) Exited the gym to the Devon Event , beating the Magma Grunt in a OHKO . On the way back I got attacked by a swarm of very angry Whismur , but I sprinted out of the tunnel to saftey. Got the pokenavi / letter / package and headded for Mr Brineys Shack , snagging a premiere ball from that Kid in the tall building . . .

Easy ride over to Dewford (the sea was nice and calm XD) Ran to get the old rod . Started fishing straight away . (If Steven wants this letter so bad he can find me ! Don't these people have phones ?!) I caught a female Magikarp , naming her midnight . I went to the pokecenter to heal up and I'm about to fight brawly and his motley crew / find steven . Using appropriate switching tactics ;) So I'll tell you all how I get on tommorow . . .

Ciao !

Challenge Accepted! Since I'm looking for a real challenge, ill go with the infamous bug type pokemon only...is it ok if i trade with my fire red cartridge for baby pokemon (lv. 5) like scyther or pinsir?

No trading for Pokemon , only for evolution . It did say that in the rules -.-;;

thank edit13....i did read that in the rules, but it was kinda confusing because i think the guy forgot a comma sumwhere...i was just making sure before i actually did it...oh well...i guess ill change to an all ground team then...

Day 1

Picked Mudkip and beat the lil Poocheyena easily, fought May, and caught Zigzagoon slave. Then I trained like a maniac and fought Roxanne...destroyed her pokemon easily. Then i saved peeko, delivered letter to Steven and fought Brawly. He was a breeze with my Marshtomp. Went to Slateport and fought Team Magma, delivered Devon goods and had no trouble at all...so far this game seems like a breeze...the trainer battles are easy and gym battles are simple...Watson shouldnt b too much a problem but the last few gyms might be...

Ok. I chose the bug challenge and i'm really getting the hang of things, apart from beating wattson.

Day 1

started with torchic. thrashed poochyena and immedeatly caught wurmple. Evolevd lil wurmple into silcoon and i had a beautilfy by the time i had fought may! (this took 30 mins training). helped wally catch his ralts, then i found surskit (amazingly) in the fisrt patch of grass i walked in on route.. something. got to roxanne, roxanne wiped out, etc.etc.
in brawly's gym i faced my first real challenge. took me 4 gos to beat his ugly machop. rushed past most trainer battles from here to save fights for training up my soon-to-be volbeat, which took 15 mins to find. i have done trick house once as well.

my team is:

Volbeat
level: 21
double team
quick attack
tail glow
confuse ray

Surskit

Beautifly

Day 2

Beat all trainers encountered and May. She was kinda tough this time but maybe thats becasue i only had Marshtomp.

Finally got to Watson, his gym was the easiest and i had no trouble beating him. Then went on to beat the winstrate family, help the couple, and then fight more trainers on route 111 and 112.

Searched the wild grass for a while and finally found a Numel! I stopped training Marshtomp and focused on Numel, using him to battle through pokemon found on Burning Path, Route 111 trainers, and Team Magma in Meteor Falls. Training a fresh Numel from scratch is tough as hell...

Fought through Mount Chimney and beat Maxie the leader on Magam with my lv 28 Numel! It was tough as hell but it helped him gain a lot of experience. Magnitude helped alot...Continued to Lavaridge town

Fought trainers in gym with Numel, and beat Flannery with a Marshtomp/Numel mix. She wasnt too hard cept for Torkoal... he took out Numel so easily...good thing Marshtomp knew water gum...

Got go-goggles from May and headed straight for the desert (some good ground types there)! Avoied trainers because battling was getting kinda boring with the same two pokemon over and over again...found lots of Sandshrews but i didnt want to use them because I always use Sandshrews....after what seemed like forever, i was about to give up on finding a high level Trappinch with good stats and an adamant nature, when i finally found a shiny, adamant Trappinch!!!

Jumped up and down for like 2 hours, trained trappinch like crazy until it evolved into a Vibrava. Then i spent some time training Numel who evolved into a Camelrupt after learning EQ, and Marshtomp who finally became a Swampert. Finally went to face Norman...only to stop at the Gym doors!! I'll fight him tomorrow...Trappinch was so hard to train that Im totally beat!!!

damn alots happend.....beat norman so easily..i was laughin cuz my pokemon totally creamed his.

caught a baltoy for training

then went to fortree city and fought all the trainers enroute...kinda hard to beat winona here becasue ground types cant really hit flying types but my dual type pokemon creamed her swellow and other pokemon

went to safari zone and caught phanpy and rhyhorn! trained and evolved both pokemon, ditched claydol becasue of his garbage stats....moved on to

stevens home town...fought the twin gym leaders and beat em wit swampert and rhydon...not too hard....

fought team magma and caught groudon...didnt wanna use him b/c i have this thing against having legendaries on my team...i dont really like it cuz it seems like cheating to have the strongest pokemon in the game on ur team...

fought wallace in sootopolis and beat him kinda easily with flygon, till he got knocked out wit icebeam, camelrupt, and swampert

trained up pokemon to lv 60 b4 heading to elite four

beat e4 with relative ease...camelrupt took out the dark type guy, ghost was taken care of by flygon, ice was beaten by swampert, dragon was owned by donphan and rhydon...used full restore on all pokemon and fought Steven...

easiest battle in the world! lol my ground types owned all of his steel types....camelrupt took care of his skarmory and rhydon, donphan took all the rest out

I chose water type.

I went to meet Profesor Birch being chased by a Poochyena. I chose Mudkip as my starter. Then, I caught a Lotad and a Wingull to add to my arsenal. I beat Roxanne pretty easily; Nosepass was a bit harder to beat though.

Then I picked up the letter and the Devon Goods. I went on Mr. Briney's ship and went to Dewford. I went to Granite cave to get some training done. I tried battling Brawly with Wingull, but it was difficult. I resorted to training more. I finally decided to try to find Steven in the dark, deliver the letter, and went to Slateport City.

There, I found Captain Stern. I gave him the Devon Goods. I then traveled to Mauville City. There, I beat Wattson easily with Marshtomp.

Current Team:
Marshtomp:
>Mud Shot
>Mud Slap
>Water Gun
>Growl

Wingull:

I decided to start a ground mono on Ruby, since I can get Groudon at the end and actully use it!

Let's see...I'll do this normally...

I started off by picking a female charecter, naming her Terra. I went fast, and hopped of the truck, set the clock, got the Potion out of the PC, and went to meet Brendon. I went to save the professor's ***, wanting him to suffer. I restared many times to get a female Mudkip. I mangaged though. I named HER Swampy.

I got a female Mudkip for breeding. Anywho, with a Bold nature and 21 hit points, we were ready to go. Swampy was vicously fighting and was raised to Level 7! I entered Oldale, preparing for the adventure ahead of me.

I entered the Pokemon Center, healed, saved, then went to the Poke Mart. I got the Potion from the clerk. Then I bought two of everything. I entered Route 103 and prepaired for the Brendon battle. Swampy was close to level 8.

I'll have to edit this later, here's Swampy's stats:

;258; Swampy(Mudkip), Level 13
Female, Bold Nature
Attacks: Tackle, Growl, Mud Slap, Water Gun

Rizor
27th June 2004, 8:43 PM
Wow, this look's interesting. I think I'll give the normal challenge a try.
------------------------

Day 1 (Ruby Version)
------

After moving into town and talking to everyone, meeting May, ect, I went off to go save Prof. Birch. I quickly chose Torchic and disposed of the annoying Poochyena. (Not sure how to spell it.) So after that, I raised Torchic to level 7 and went off to go beat May, and on the way I grabbed a free potion fromm the shop guy. After wiping the smile off May's face, I headed back to Birch's lab, got my pokeballs, and headed out to Oldale. I soon found a level 3 Zigzagoon, caught it, and named it Krux. I then released Torchic, as I wouldnt be needing him anymore. I trained for a while, then trained in Pedalburg, wiping out the odd trainer as I go. I helped wally catch a Ralts, and then I was off. I did some quick training in the woods, and decided not to catch a Slakoth, as it takes for ever to train. So everything had been going smoothly so far. I beat the trainers and walked passed the Double-Battle trainers, as I only had Krux. This is where my problems started. I went to go and try my luck and see how well I would do againtst Roxanne, but my attacks did NOTHING, and I was soon beaten. Realising I needed more pokemon, I headed north and caught a Skitty, Who I name Surik, and a Whismur, named Xyken, who were both Male. I tried a few more times against Roxanne - No luck. I soon went into lock down training mode and began to raise Xyken to level 21, when he would learn Supersonic and Evolve into a Loudred. After achieving that, I began to train Surkit to level 18, and Krux also to 18. I was now ready. I took down Geodude with Surik, using a combination of Attract, Sing, and Double-Slap, and he was down for the count, but Surkit was down to 4 HP. As soon as Nosepass came out I used sing, but it failed, and Surkit fainted. I sent out Xyken, and using a combination of Supersonic and Uproar, I easily wiped him out in a few attacks. Next it was onto the Cut masters house, and I taught Krux cut. I then took out the Team Magma grunt with a single Double-slap from Surik, and I was now on my way to dewford. I need to get some training done, because yet again I was at a disadvantage, against a Fighting Type gym. I decided for my training I shall get to steven without flash, as I knew the way. Surik grew to level 20, Xyken to 22, and Krux to 20, and Evolved. I went to the gym, and dominated every trainer with Surik Double Slap, and the Gym Leaders Machop. He sent out Makuhita, and I sent out Xyken, who with one Uproar deafeated the Makuhita. So the worst is over for now, as I head off to Slateport to take care of team Magma.

My Current Team is This:

Krux/Linoone
Brave Nature
Moves:
Headbutt
Growl
Sand-attack
Cut

Xyken/Loudred
Mild Nature
Moves:
Pound
Uproar
Astonish

Wow, I've gotten quite far in my Normal Challenge in the past day or so, so it's time for an Update.

Day 2
------

When we last pick off, I was just heading for Slateport I think. I got there, beat the trainers on the beach then moved on to finish up with Team Magma in the museum. I went on and did the Trick Masters Challenge for some training, then went and easily disposed of May. I eventually reached Mauville and headed to the Gym, beat Wally in one hit from Surkits double-slap, then went in and beat the trainers. Now once again, for the 3rd time in a row, I was at a disadvantage. My normal type attacks could deal to voltorb, but because Magnemite and Magneton(sp?) were steel types, My attacks did next to nothing. So I went off to go train Surkit, Xyken and Krux. Eventually, Xykens Stomp did the trick at level 32, and we weere now on our way to the next town, which was far far away. I trained a bit on the way, and I was now in Fallabor Town. I went south and Caught a Zangoose, who I name Eura, and Began to train him to level 28. I moved on to find Prof. Cozmo having his Meteorite being stolen, and Team Magma getting away. (Do'h!) I moved on and went around back to the desert, then head for that Cable Car Service. Maxie's golbat caused a bit of trouble for Xyken, so I let Eura have a try, who won the rest of the battle and grew to level 31.
I moved onto the next Gym and beat the gym leader with ease using Krux's headbutt. I went back to PedalBurg, and Xyken had now evolved in a Exploud, and knew Hyper Beam. Using Xykens New Attack, I completely obliderated my dad and made my way back to Mauville, where I then traveled to Fortree City, beating the odd trainer along the way. The Gym was a piece of cake to Eura, and it wasnt long before we began making our way to Lilycove, Which is where I am Now.

Here is my current team:

Xyken/Exploud lvl 48
Rock Smash
Stomp
Uproar
Hyper Beam

Krux/Linoone lvl 47

Way to Go Rizor! :)

DAY TWO

I evolved my Silcoon and Cascoon into Beautifly and Dustox inside Petalburg Woods before taking on the Aqua Grunt. They both leveling 13 and surkit ahem..6....

I beat Roxanne pretty easily with Absorb and headed to Rustoboror Cave.
I caught a male Nincada there and saved Peeko.
Training inside Granite Cave while I delived the letter to Steven, I then headed to Slateport and quickly demolished Team Aqua.
(I didn't even enter Brawly's gym yet. :D

I fought my Rival like this:



Dustox vs. Numel
(Confusion, Confusion)

Dustox vs. Grovlye
(Poison Sting (Poisoned Grovlye, Gust, Poison Sting)

Beautifly vs. Wailmer
(Absorb but nearly fainted because of Rollout)

Headed to Mauville and trained really hard. First I tried to breed Marshtomp with Surskit but no luck but Nincada had a go and I got a MALE Surksit. I trained Nincada to evolve into Ninjask (and Shedinja) lv.20, Beautifly to lv.18, Surskit to lv.25 and Dustox stayed at lv.15)

I still only have one Badge! lol.

It's been a long time since I updated, but I dont have much time to write this, so it'll be a quickie.

Day 3 & 4
----------

Defeated Team Magma at mount Pyre and their base, then got the mossdeep Gym Badge. Went to go beat Team Magma for the las time, and it was pretty easy. I headed to Sootopilis(sp?) and defeated Groudon, then got the Last badge. Did some last minute training and then went off to victory Road. I whipped through the whole thing with only Eura at my side, then went for the Pokemon League. I taught Eura a variety of mones to give me an advantage. (brick Break, Thunderbolt and Return.) Beat the Pokemon League eaily, seeing that Eura was level 79. I instantly went off to go catch Rayquaza(sp?) with my master ball, and the normal challenge is now complete.

I was just wondering, why exactly are the types limited to those you have listed? I was wanting to start a Monotype Psychic Challenge, but its not listed under the types. Could someone explain as to why?

You can chose any type, those are just examples, start your psychic challenge

Then why does it say


Now, these are the types you can choose from:

Water
Bug
Flying
Normal
Grass
Fighting

Oh well. Im gonna transfer my pokes to my brothers game(since I was trying to complete the pokedex and got bored) then start my challenge.

Well, a Psychic Challenge would be hard because of the Dark Pokemon Team Aqua/Magma use. I tried a Psychic Challenge before with Ralts. Against the Grunt in Petalburg woods, I used Growl, then "struggled" to win.

But I beat it!:

Thats exactly what I was going to try. I just started my challenge. I have a Ralts on level 7 right now. Need to train some more.

As for a Dark Challenge I dont find that highly appealing. While I love Dark as a type, the only Dark Pokemon that appealed to me were T-Tar and Houndoom. Since I cant get either in this game......

Dont forget Shiftry. Btw that team looks almost exactly like the First E-4 dudes team XD

On my challenge Ive got a bit of an update. But since I didnt say much in my last post Ill go from the begining.

I restarted my game for the 50th time after sending my main team to my brother's sapphire(Didnt want to loose all the work Id put into it). Get Torchick as my starter, kill Poochyena ***. Move on, kick May's *** as well. Go get my pokeballs and Pokedex, and move on to the route where you catch ralts. Either because he sensed my need for the challenge, or because of pure luck, first pokemon I find is Ralts. Catch it and train 2 levels with Torchick, put torchick in the box and let him start using Confusion to win fights. Around level 10 I decided to go kill the trainers. I go trainer to trainer killing the first couple, then I got to the one with Poochyena. I wasnt prepared for it so I reset. Go back after wasting all my Growls and Confusions(By this time Im level 11), and struggle against him for the win. Go to pokemon center and heal. Move on and help Wally catch his Ralts.

Devestate the next batch of trainers, before moving up to talk to the Devon guy I again waste all my PP. Now Im about level 14, and struggle for the win against the Poochyena. Destroy all the trainers(except the 2 on 2 fight which I couldnt access due to having only one pokemon) and move into Rustburo. Do the usual stuff here, get the HM01 and such. Move to the Verdanturf Tunnel Path,fighting all the trainers. Head back and beat the gym at level 18 no trouble at all. Catch a Zigzagoon and teach it cut. Go to the 2 on 2 battle, waste my first turn killing off Zigzagoon(So I dont break challenge rules of using him to help me win a fight) then kill the lotad, waste PP since the Seedot cant do damage. Now I run up and kill the Magma grunt again using strugle. Teleport back to heal. Run up and talk to Devon guy. Get my stuff and run on to Dewford.

First stop, go to the cave and catch an Abra. First one I got was Jolly, I didnt want to loose Sp Attack, so I caught another one. This one had a nuetral nature. Good enough for me. Start training it to about 12, during this time Ralts got to 20 and evolved. Now I go to the gym killing everyone with confusion, Abra getting half Experience. After beating brawly I have a level 15 Abra. Go back to the Cave and train one more level, I have a new Kadabra. Trade with my brother and trade back and I have a level 16 Alakazam. Go on through the cave, by the time I get to Steven he's caught up with Kirlia.

Escape rope out of there and run down to the Boat and Im off to Slateport. I dont remember exact levels around here, but I killed all the trainers, and moved on. Got Thief from the guy inside the Museum and teach it to Alakazam. No more Struggling against Dark Types woohoo! Kill the grunts upstairs, move on. Fight all the trainers in the area, and go through the trick house. Use Rare Candy on Kirlia.(Note I still havent gotten anything worthwhile from that Cutting Zigzagoon ><; )Fight May, go on to Mauvile.

Pick up Rock smash, beat the Winstrate Familly, beat people on both routes and cycling road. Now Im 26/27. Kirlia kills the gym on his own using his new Psychic. Leaves at level 28 and with A new Shockwave attack. Teach Zigzagoon Rock Smash, break a boulder and get strength. Head north from Mauville and start killing people. Now Im just about to go into the Fire Path.

Yeah I know really long and probably too detailed. Oh well.

10th July 2004, 2:29 AM
I’ll do Ground. I'll be doing it as if I were a n00b, because it's more fun that way.

I get out of the truck and stretch for literally about 10 minutes. That was a long drive... and what the crap were they thinking putting me in the back of a truck?! So anyway, I went to meet Brendan. He was really cool and even offered to catch me a Pokemon. But then he says that he has to go research with his dad.

Curious, I follow and see Professor Birch being chased by a Pokemon called Poochyena! He tells me to use one of the Pokemon from his pack to fight off the Poochyena. I grabbed the Pokeball on the right and threw it. A little blue Pokemon called Mudkip popped out. It’s. Adorable! Quiet little guy, though. I easily fight off the Poochyena.

Back at Professor Birch’s lab, he tells me I can keep the Mudkip I used to fight off the Poochyena. He said it was a thanks, but I have a feeling it was really so I don’t tell anyone about the embasrrasment of being chased by a Pokemon while he was supposed to be researching. He also told me to go find Brendan. I don’t mind, he’s kinda cute. ;)

So I do so, fighting wild Pokemon along the way to raise Aquamarine (the Mudkip)’s level to 6. I heal at the Pokemon Center and go to Brendan. He challenges me to a fight, and it was a good thing I decided to heal. I tell my Mudkip to use Mudslap and it does next to nothing. Luckily for me, Tackles do more damage. I tackle and easily clean up his Treecko. Mudkip grew to Level 7!

I guess he went easy on me, because Professor Birch said Brendan already has an extensive history as a Trainer. Preofessor Elm told me to catch a bunch of Pokemon around the world and Brendan even gave me 5 free Pokeballs. Any excuse to get away from my mom after the psycho locked me up in a truck for 3 days. My mom gave me Running Shoes. She must have heard I’m leaving town. I almost forgive her for the truck incident. Almost.

After beating up a few more wild Pokemon (I’m such a sadist) and Aquamarine growing to Level 8, I heal at the Pokemon Center because you can never be too careful, I went to challenge other Trainers. My first challenger was a Trainer named Calvin. I tried Mud Slap again, hoping for more luck this time. Neither Tackle or Mud Slap were affected by my opponent’s type, (It was a Zigzagoon) but Tackle still did more. Mud Slap lowers the opponent’s accuracy, though. Maybe Ill start some battles with one of those and see how it works out.

My next challenger was this kid named Rick who seems to use only Bug Pokemon. I use the strategy I mentioned before. Mud Slap did next to nothing again... bummer. I tackled twice and it was over and Aquamarine grew to level 9. Then for another surprise, he had another Wurmple. I skipped the Mud Slap and Tackled. I got a critical hit and the Wurmple went down in one hit!

Against my next victim, Allen, I discovered that Mud Slap can’t hit flying types and Aquamarine grew to level 10! Double digits! I’m a real trainer now! After beating him, I got a few Pecha and Oran berries. Aquamarine seemed to like the Oran Berry, so I gave him one.

I was challenged by this real egomaniac who called herself Tiana, and I tried just using a bunch of Mud Slap on her Zigzagoon. She couldn’t hit me at all! It was awesome! Then I finished it off with a Water Gun. Against her second Zigzagoon, I found that Water Gun did more damage than Tackle. I found a Potion on the ground, so I picked it up and headed off to Petalburg. both Aquamarine and me were, I think, happy for the rest at the Pokemon Center.

I paid my dad a visit in his gym. Just being there was kind of awesome. It felt really official. This kid Wally came in and asked me to help him catch a Pokemon. I figured it couldn’t hurt anything and went off and watched him. Of course... I was compeltely clueless on how to catch a Pokemon. I don’t know why he bothered hurting it. I was disgusted. First you beat them up, then you throw metal balls at them? What kind of twisted system is this!?

I stood no chance against my dad yet, so I promised to return someday and went on my way to Whatever City. I found some Pecha and Oran berries. My gut told me to switch Aquamarine’s Oran berry with a Pecha.

I left some footprints in the sand with a kid named Billy and he challenged me to a battle. Water Gun didn’t do much against his Seedot, so I used a Tackle Attack. Seedot used this weird attack called Bide and did more damage than has ever been done to Aquamarine! It grew to Lv 11 after that... hehe. I Water Gunned his other Pokemon, Taillow, twice and it was over. Aquamarine looked worn out, so I took him to the Pokemon Center.

This arrogant prick came up to me and started bragging about how he has alot of money. I set him straight, though. Mud Slap, Water Gun, and Tackle and he’s down. He didn’t even hit me and Aquamarine’s Level 12. I also found another free Pokeball.

My next challenger, another bug freak named Lyle, had 6 Pokemon! They were all pathetic, though. Went down in one Water Gun. This guy came up and asked me about a Pokemon called Shroomish when a freak gangster dude attacked us! Mr Shroomish his behind me. Why does everone think I don’t have feelings lately?!

So I fought off the unnamed weirdo with one Water Gun and he ran away, saying he’s from Team Aqua. Hehe, how ironic. A person from a team named Aqua offed by a water attack. Mr Shroomish gave me a Great Ball! Then he ran away really fast. Another Bug freak, James, fought me. This one was different. He fought me with an ultra-cute Pokemon called Nincada. A Water Gun offed it in one hit. Is Aquamarine too strong?

I found an Ether on the ground and left the forest and found Cheri (Which I switched onto Aquamarine, since the others didn’t seem to do anything) and Oran berries, among other things. I fought some Lady who babbled on about fate. Beat her Zigzagoon with a few Tackles.

Then I fought some schizo named Haley. Water Gun did almost nothing against her Lotad, so I used a few Tackles. Same story with the Shroomish, except it Poisoned me. To my surprise, the Cheri Berry healed it without me having to do anything! Aquamarine learned that awesome Bide attack at the expense of Growl, which I never used anyway.

I tried to challenge these arrogant kids anded Mia and Gina, but they said I need 2 Pokemon to fight them. Gina wasn’t too cocky, but Mia... grr. Found Cherry and Leppa berries and gave Aquamarine a Leppa. We were again glad for the rest at Rustboro. I wanted to go fight Roxanne at the Gym, but I also wanted to see why so many weirdos loved bugs so much. I decided to catch a Nincada. Thankfully, it was only across town.

I went to catch one and was attacked by YET ANOTHER bug freak, Jose, and beat up all his Pokemon with no real problem. I found a Repel on the ground, so I grabbed it. I found a Nincada and tackled it twice and threw the Great Ball Mr Shroomish gave me. Doing it yourself isn’t as bad as watching it. I named it Jadeite and rushed it to the Pokemon Center, because it was really weakened.

On the way to the Twins, I beat some fish freak who called himself Ivan. All he had was a few Magikarp. I think I’ve eaten a few of those before... Anyway, Scratches did them in. I gave Jadeite an Oran Berry and went to fight the twins. Jadeite’s Leech Life took care of the Seedot with some help and Aquamarine’s Tackle beat Lotad. I’m getting better at this. ^_^

Aquamarine evolved! Or that’s what the twins told me. Marshtomp’s awesome beyond words. Since Bide really sucks as I found after a few uses, I replaced it with Mud Shot!

The guy at the enterance of Rustboro Gym told me Water beats Rock easily. Looked easy. I let Jadeite fight a little for experience, but Aquamarine did all the fighting against the trainers. I experimented against Roxanne and found that Mud Shot is also super effective against Geodude, so I used it for the whole battle. I replaced Mud Slap with Rock Tomb on Aquamarine.

When I left, Mr Shroomish was chasing that Aqua guy! I healed at the Pokemon Center and chased after. Mr Aqua stole some Goods and went off towards a cave. Naturally, I chased after Mr Aqua. I was stopped by a few trainers, but they all lost to Jadeite. This girl’s Marrill almost did me in, but Jadeite’s Oran Berry restored Jadeite. So its all good. I switched to Aquamarine to stop it from happening again.

Now I’m training Jadeite, but that's boring, so I won't go into detail.

PART 2

At Level 14, I finally moved on. This old guy had his Pokemon stolen! I entered the cave he was near to find Mr Aqua, grabbed another free Pokeball, and found that Mr Aqua was behind the Pokemon theft. That guys a real jerk. I beat him again with a single Fury Swipes from Jadeite.

When I showed Mr Shroomish that I brought back the Devon Goods, he gave me another Great Ball and took me to his leader. Long story short, I now have something called a PokeNav and have to do some major errand running. How they expect me to get to an island is beyond me.

On my way back to Petalburg, I stopped by the Cutter’s house, expecting to laugh at an angsty teen and crappy music nowadays. to my surprise, he just had a way of hitting every girl who comes near him. He gave me a Cut HM, though, so I should be thankful. I rented a Zigzagoon from a trainer and went on my way.

I taught the Zigzagoon cut and started fighting the secret trainer club near the cave. Nincada’s Leech Life was super effective against almost everything there. I can see why everyone loves bugs so much. <3 Then I grabbed some berries.

On the way out of town, I saw Brendan. <3 We talked about a few things for a little while, nothing major. I should probably get working on my Pokedex, too... nah. I went to Petalburg Woods and Cut down a tree. Got some free stuff. Free stuff’s always good.

So then I remembered. Mr Briney’s cabin had a boat! Maybe if I go to him, he’ll give me a ride! I did and he did. At Slateport, I went in the cave. A hiker at the enterance gave me a free HM I’ll probably never use. I found a Geodude. The idea of a floating rock was cool, so I caught it. 2 Leech Lifes and I threw one of the Pokeballs that Brendan (<3) gave me. Gotcha! Geodude was caught!

Trained him for a while until he got stronger than Roxanne’s. Then I easily made my way through the cave without Flash. I so rock. I gave the letter to Steven and walked out. (=P)

Having done my job, I had Mr Briney bring me to Slateport. One of the trainers KO’d Indigolite(my Geodude), so I ran to the Pokemon Center. I beat all the trainers and the Rest House easily and got some Soda Pop because the clock was ticking and I couldn’t stop.

I went around town a little and foun someone named Dock in some kinda shipyard place. He told me to deliver the goods to Captian Stern. Screw that. I wanted to take a few sights in. I went to the museum. It was just then when I realized just how rich I was after starting this whole Trainer gig.

Lucky me, the museum was overrun with Mr Aquas. One of them gave me a TM, though, so it’s not all bad. I looked around for a while and went to the top floor. And I found Captain Stern. What a coincidence. Some Mr Aquas attacked me. Jadeite beat the first one and the second ones Zubat. The second one’s Carvanha beat up Jadeite, so I sent out Indigolite and Magnituded.

Another Aqua named Archie explained to me what Team Aqua is. I agree the world needs more water, but the way they do it is disgusting.

Then I realized that I completely skipped a Gym! I’m so stupid! I went to Mr Briney and he brought me back to Dewford.

I am doing Mono type ground challenge.
I name my player Ruby, ride in a moving truck, a crate falls on my foot, i scream and promise to get that truck driver later. My mom tells to me to set my clock, even though i have a watch! After i am done she calls me over to the tv to see Dad, turns out its over, ah well, i want to get my pokemon already! I go over to see Professer Birch, talk to his wife and head up to his Daugthers room. She is looking on her computer and checking her pokemon when she noticed me. She said hi, then left to find her father. I go toward the wild, who cares about Birch, i want to get on my Journey! I see Birch being chased by a wild Poochyena, boy do dogs scare me. I see a bag and run toward it, their are three pokeballs in the bag, so i grab the one with Mudkip it in, and whoop Poochyena. Prof Birch takes me back to his lab and gives me the Mudkip, which i nickname Mudskip. I meet May and beat her very easily, she has a very cool Treecko. I head to petalburg and battle the trainers on the way.

I go to the gym and talk to dad, then some nice kid comes in and asks for a pokemon, Dad lends him one to catch one. The kid, Wally, catches a Ralts and thanks me and dad. I leave for Rustboro. Alot of trainer battles, then, a Devon guy is searching for Shroomish and a Team Magma assaults us. I defeat him, Devon guy gives me a greatball, and i leave the forest. And can't battle Gina and Mia because i only have one Pokemon. I go to the next route and train, and catch a zigagoon slave. Try to defeat the gym leader, fail, but Mudskip evolves! Try again, fail. But the third time was the charm and i won. I teach Rock Tomb to Mudskip.

A team Magma grunt runs away with more Devon goods and i chase him. I battle two young trainers and some guy complains about his Peeko being stolen. I go in, defeat the grunt, get back the goods and Peeko. Give the goods to Devon guy and he takes me inside to the president. I talk to him and he gives me a letter and package to give to Dewford, and whats it name? Staleport? No, Slateport? Yes thats it. I go to Mr Briney rest, waiting to set sail in the morning.

Pokemon Stats:
Name: Mudskip. Species: Marshtomp. Gender: Male.
Nature: Docile.
Attacks: Water Gun. Mud Shot. Rock Tomb. Growl.

Zigzagoon. (Slave, don't really need to list attacks or nature do I?)

Did i do it right?

I had Mr Briney bring me back to Slateport for some training to rechallenge Brawly later. I fought the regular batch, snobs, freaks, morons, kids, and of course nerds, and then found a strange house in the middle of nowhere. There were a bunch of trees and trainers. The first one I fought paralyzed Jadeite and no Pokemon should have to suffer like that, so I rushed it to the Pokemon Center in Slateport. The rest went down with no problem at all and I got a Rare Candy which I used on Jadeite.

I had Mr Briney send me back to Dewford and rechallenged Brawly.

DEBORA VS. LEADER BRAWLY (AGAIN)

Jadeite Vs. Machop

Jadeite started with alot of Hardens, then Fury Swipes, Super Potion, Fury Swipes, Soda Pop, Super Potion, Fury Swipes, Soda Pop, Fury Swipes, Soda Pop, then I switched to Aquamarine.

Aquamarine Vs. Machop

I see now just how awesome those Hardens were. Aquamarine went down in 2 Karate Chops.

Indigolite Vs. Machop

Indigolite went down in a single Critical Karate Chop

Jaedite Vs. Machop

Fury Swipes hit only twice. Luckily for me, Machop used Seismic Toss, so I Scratched and it was over.

Jadeite Vs. Makuhita

I can’t seem to remember Leech Life doesn’t do much to Fighting Types. I Leppad Fury Swipes and used it a few times. Then I used a klot of Oran Berries. More Fury Swipes while it kept Knock Offing. It used Arm Thrust, which was like a lot of Knock Offs. While it kept Knock Offing, I kept Fury Swipesing and won by a nose. Jadeite was almost down.

Winner: Deborah

So I got a Knucklebadge and TM 08! To Slateport again!

On my way to the next town with the next gym with the next badge, I met Brendan! ^_^ We battled!

DEBORAH VS. BRENDAN

Jadeite vs. Numel

Ember. X.X

Indigolite Vs. Numel

A Tackle and Numel was down, though poor Indigolite was Burned in the process.

Aquamarine vs. Wailmer

Mud Shots, Rock Tombs, Tackles, and Water Guns. Wailmer went down while Aquamarine remained somewhat conscious.

Grovyle vs. Indigolite

Absorb and Indogolite was down.

Aquamarine vs. Grovyle

See Grovyle vs. Indigolite.

Winner: Brendan

Last time, I wasn’t ready. This time, I am. I changed my line-up around a bit. ^_^

DEBORAH VS. BRENDAN

Aquamarine vs. Numel

Water Gun. Bye-bye, Numel!

Jadeite Vs. Grovyle

Leech Lifed until I lost...

Indigolite Vs. Grovyle

Same as last time...

Aquamarine Vs. Grovyle

Aquamarine surprisingly didn’t go down after the first Absorb. He did after the second.

Winner: Brendan

That Grovyle got me every time. Jadeite was the only one to get an attack that happened to be Super Effective against it, so I took it for some training. Then I challenged him again.

DEBORAH VS. BRENDAN

Aquamarine vs. Numel

Water Gun. Bye-bye, Numel!

Jadeite Vs. Grovyle

Leech Lifed until it was gone.

Indigolite Vs. Wailmer

Water Gun. Bye-bye, Indigolite. What the crap was I thinking?

Aquamarine Vs. Wailmer

Mud Shots until Wailmer went bye-bye.

Winner: Deborah

Brendan gave me an Itemfinder! So then I went back to Slateport Pokemon Center and went on my way. After beating a few pathetic trainers, I decided to stock up on Greatballs and heal at Mauville. Some weirdo decided that he’d make a legend about me from how many times I’ve battled. It’s freaky that he knows...

So anyway, I battled more Trainers. There I was, minding my own business, when Indigolite decided to evolve! A nice Triathelete told me that if I traded it, it would evolve. So I went to the Pokemon Center and placed Aquamarine on one side of the trader and Indigolite on the other. Hehe, easy. I now have a totally awesome Golem!

Then I found a normal person who called himself Isaac. What a relief...

So then I went to challenge the gym and fought the Wally kid I helped catch a Ralts. It was a nice surprise to see him again. A Leech Life and a Scratch and his Ralts was down. Bummer. Hope he gets stronger someday.

I went to the Gym. The guy in front of it said that Ground does well against Wattson. Now that I look at it, all of my Pokemon are Ground. Cool! ^_^ Maybe I’ll become a Ground trainer.

Jadeite Vs. Electrike

It Selfdestructed and left me barely alive (1 HP). Sucker.

Indigolite Vs. Magneton

Magnitude! Magnitude 9! Super Effective! I win!

Winner: Deborah

And I got my Dynamo Badge! Yay!




I got an HM from some guy and used it to break a boulder in a cave and got another HM. Sweet.

Later on Route 112, I found a wild Numel. Remembering that it’s a ground type, I use a few Scratch attacks and throw one of the Pokeballs that Brendan gave me. I decided to name her Melanite. I went through the cave and caught a Sandshrew (Andesine)


(I’m gonna be summarizing more because I’m getting bored of writing and have about 5 minutes left)

I lost to Archie, then evolved Andesine and beat him. Yay. Then beat Flannery using Aquamarine to beat the whole gym without any kind of healing at all, got the Go-goggles from Brendan (<3), and caught a Baltoy (Balas) and a Trapinch (Oligonite). Trained them.

I'll do another type, this time Psychic again.


------------------------
DAY 1
------------------------

Started off calling myself CHRIS (my real name) and moving in to my new house. After meeting my new rival, I went in search of Birch. Finding him under attack I chose Treecko so my rival would get Combusken (Fight < Psychic)

I trained until Treecko reached lv.9 and fought my rival. Easy enough with a few pounds. Headed home and got some PokeBalls. I caught a female Ralts and trained with the help of Treecko on Route 102 until it got Confusion at level 6. I deposited Treecko and got myself a male Zigzagoon for CUT and ROCK SMASH.

I swamped most trainers, leaving some for my Abra and helped Wally with his Ralts. I went to Rustboro City collecting the Wailmer Pail, all the Berries and Bullet Seed. Inside Petalburg Woods, I kept using Growl and Confusion (no effect) until Poochyena fell to my struggles.

Inside the gym it was easy, a couple of Confusions knocked down all the Geodude and a few more for Nosepass. Headed to Rusturf tunnel skipping the trainers to fight the Grunt again. I saved Peeko and returned to Devon, collecting the PokeNav and some extra cash but spent it on more PokeBalls.

Going to Dewford and landing there I decided to get a good Abra. I caught the first one I saw, a level 9 male with Synchronize (Perfect for Wattson's Electric foes). I trained Abra to 16 and it evolved into Kadabra.

I went to Slateport, taught thief to ralts and attack the grunts in the meusem.

I then deposited Ralts after training Kabara some and save outside the PokeCenter.

I was wondering if someone can suggest Nicknames for my Pokes. And I would like to mention that:


There are FIVE fire types in the Game if you're doing a Fire Type Challenge:

There Are:
1) Blaziken
2) Camerupt
3) Magcargo
4) Torkoal
5) Ninetales

5 pokemon is enough to get you to the Elite Four.

DAY TWO
----------------

Knuckle Badge - Know Chance!
Lame I know, but Brawly was easy!

Catch Up Put Up!
I got the PokeBlock Case.
After training Kadabra to lv. 21, it learned Psybeam so I knew I had a chance against my rival. Wailmer and Shroomish were okay but Combusken was easy. I skipped most of the trainers for leater raising and trained my Kadabra to lv. 26 before entering the gym. I easily beat the trainers and challenged Wattson. Yipee for Synchronize! Magnemite paraylzed me and itself so I brought it down with Psybeam, I healed with Para Heal when Voltorb and it only used Sonicboom and when Magneton paralyzed both of us, a few Psybeams got it.

Mt. Chimney and a Blazing Badge!
I taught ROCK SMASH to Ziggy and continued north Skipping Trainers again, and heading Past Fallorbor to get to Meteor Falls to catch a Lunatone. I met one at level 18 and Caught it, it best stats were Speed, Sp. Atk and Atk. (Perfect for Psychic(special) and Rock Throw(normal) I headed back and fought all the trainers I missed. Luna growing to lv.28 before taking on the grunts at Mt.Chimney. Rock Throw did wonders against them and when fighting Archie it was too easy. 3 Rock Throws to Mightyena due to Intimidate, one Psybeam from Kadabra to Golbat, 4 Rock Throws to Sharpedo (because of Super Potions). While fighting Sharpedo used "Crunch" and I prepared for the worst. But to my surprise, Lunatone only lost 14-16 HP :)

With Lunatone and Kadabra both at lv. 29, I decided to take on the 4th Gym which was pretty easy. I used Kadabra against Flannery's two Slugma and my Rock Throwing Lunatone against Torkoal, with my new badge in hand or at least on my trainer card, and after getting the goggles off my rival, I headed for the 5th Gym. Just to let you know my team consists of : Lunatone(lv.30), Kadabra(lv.31) and Zigzagoon(lv.4). I also got the Egg.

Fifth Gym - Psychic vs. Normal
The Gym Trainers were easy but Norman wasn't too hard or too easy. I managed to get off a Future Sight from Kadabra before being knocked by one Facade against his first Slaking. Out comes Lunatone and Confusion hits! Traunt works so I use Cosmic Power. In other words I used a Combo of Confusion to attack and Cosmic Power to boost my defence when traunt activated. Out comes Vigoroth and it's crappy Faint Attack, two Confusion attack and it's curtains for Vigoroth. Norman uses his final Slaking and tries to get in a Focus Punch, I made a simple mistake by healing and one of his Focus Punch landed! Due to Cosmic Power, 20 HP was lost (Like the pre-Psychic master I am :cool: (lol!) I predicted this! and another Confusion downs Slaking.

Into the Sky (or Rain if the case is) for the Sixth Badge
Teaching SURF to Zigzagoon, I headed home and recieved the amulet(sp?) coin from my mother and gave it to my precious Lunatone. I headed for Mauville through Route 103 and surfed east to Route 119. I fought the two PKMN Rangers only because I think they're cool and skipped the Pokemon center to get to Steven and Kecleon. I ran from it and biked to Lilycove City just so I can fly there later. I went into the Safari Zone and caught a Doduo for FLY, Two Girafarig (one male and one female), two Pickachu (look at sig) and some others who crossed my point. Also my egg hatched into a male Wynaut and I put it in the P.C and headed back to Fortee. I mainly used Lunatone and Rock Throw for this gym and headed to Winona.

PSYCHIC CHRIS VS> LEADER WINONA


Swellow vs. Lunatone =
2Rock Throws. (One missed because of Double Team)

Pelipper vs. Lunatone =
1 Rock Throw (Critical Hit! :) )

Skarmory vs. Kadabra = (Switched from Lunatone to Kadabra for EXP.)
I tried Psybeam but not very effective so I ued Future Sight and it went down a lot, so I used another and stalled by healing and used recover.

Altaria vs. Lunatone =
2 Psychic attacks.
Lunatone grew to lv.37 and learned Psychic and I used it against Altaria. The first lowered Sp. Def and the second one knocked it out.
YAY! Six Badges.

I taught FLY to Doduo and headed to Mauville CIty and got an egg from the Girafarig, then headed back to Mt. Pyre. Rock Throw'ed from Lunatone until I reached Archie and got the Blue Orb. I stayed there and caught two Chimecho (one male and one female). I flew to Lilycove and hatched to get a male lv.5 Girafarig with Tackle Growl and Confusion. I saved there and now I must prepare for the next two Gyms and the Elite Four.

I'll go with Flying.

Getting out of the Truck, I went to set the clock in my New House. Then my "Mum" told me to go see our next door neighbours, who were friends of the Petalburg Gym Leader Norman, who was my "Father". Our neighbours were the Birches. I went inside and talked with their Daughter, May. Remembering she was supposed to help her father, Prof. Birch capture Pokemon this morning, she set off for Route 101. I set off there too, and found Prof. Birch being attacked by a Wild Poocheyna. I chose Torchic for the Time-Being, and quickly finished off the Poocheyna. Then I received Torchic. I went off to meet May on Route 103. We battled eachother, and I pulled through. Then we set off back for the lab.

When we got there, Prof. Birch gave me a Pokedex, and May gave me 5 Poke'balls. I went back to Route 103 and caught a Wingull. Then I deposited Torchic.

I decided to do a flying type challenge so here goes...

I set the time on my clock and decided to meet my neighbors. After greeting and meeting them, I head towards route 101 to find Birch being attacked by a Poochyena. I chose Mudkip and defeated the Poochyena and Birch brought me to his lab. He gives me the Mudkip which I name Fin, and tells me to meet his kid May on route 103. After training Fin to level 7 I head over to battle May. She was easily defeated after a few tackle attacks. We head back to her dad's lab where I recieve a pokedex and some pokeballs. I head back to Route 103 where I had seen some Wingulls before and try to catch one. After a bit of searching I eventually find one. I caught him and named him Beak. After depositeing Fin I head out to train my new Wingull.

Team:

Beak/Wingull (m) L3
Brave nature
Attacks: Water Gun, Growl

EDIT: After training Wingull about 2 levels I ran into a Tailow (f). I capture it easily. Now I train both of my pokemon's levels, knowing that my first gym battle will be against a rock trainer. Too bad I didn't catch the Surskit I saw earlier. I forgot that it evolves into a flying type....

Beak/Wingull (m) L15
Brave
Attacks: Water Gun, Growl, Supersonic, Wing Attack

Peck/Tailow (f) L15

Here some more from yesterday......
After raising my team to about level 15 yesterday, I head over to face Roxanne. The first pokemon, her Geodude, was pretty easy. It was KO'ed with one Water Gun. Nosepass on the other hand required a supersonic fallowed by a few Water Guns to take down. After recieving the Stone Badge, I find the same man I had saved from the forest. I follow him and he tells me to retrieve the Devon Goods. After defeating a Grunt, I returned the Goods to Mr.Stone, recieved a PokeNav, and is given yet another errand.

I think I'll try my hand at Grass. ^.^''
Called myself Duncan, did all of the start-out business.
Chose Treecko, beat down that Poochyena with Pound.
Scurried back to the Lab with the Professor. ><'
Nicknamed my new female Treecko, Lillian.
Set out, and battled my way through Routes, 101, and 103.
Trained to level 12 before kicking May in the rear.
Set off for route, 102.
Trained a further, 4 levels, and evolved Lillian into a Groyvle.

Returned to the Gym, and was given some advice from my Father, about battling Gyms, and all that.
Set of for route, 104. Beat the Trainers there, and head for Petalburg Woods. ^_^
Arrived in Petalburg Woods, beat the Trainers, and the Team Magma member, collected the available items, and caught a female Shroomish (Which I am not going to evolve until it learns Spore. O.o) and I nicknamed Seedy and switch trained her too level 7 before allowing her to level herself and further 6 levels lonesome, and exiting the Woods.
Continued on too the other part of route 104. Battled the Trainers, collected the Hidden items, fought my first Grass-only Double Battle, and kicked butt. :3
Arrived in Rustboro, collected the items, about along with HM01. ^_^ Then decided it was time for a HM and Pickup Slave. S= Caught a level 6, Zigzagoon, and nicknamed him ‘Slave’ >P
Trained Seedy too level 16, and Lillian too 20. ^.^ Then headed for Rustboro Gym. =3’
Seedy grew a level whilst creaming the Gym Trainers. Lillian didn’t grow any levels, while destroying Roxanne.
Exited the Gym, and watched as the Devon Researcher chased the Team Magma Grunt. I followed him up, and battled the trainers, and collected the items, along the way. I made my way into the cave, got the avaliable item, and beat the Magma Grunt. =D' Returned too the Devon Researcher, and was asked too accompany him. I talked with the President, and set off for Dewford, collecting the Miracle Seed, and other items, now available thanks too cut. ^_^ I'm now on my way too Dewford. *pats self on back* =3!

I made it too Fortee, and caught a Oddish along the way, whom I called Daisy. She instantly evolved into a Gloom. I just beat Winona, on my first time...luckily she didn't use Aerial Ace, much. Plus I had plenty of money for Revives, and Hyper Potions. ^_^

Gah... I must try this. It'll be rather hard due to school and other random time-consuming things, but it looks really fun. I plan on going with either Bug or Psychic. However, I'm not sure if Psychic is -really- allowed. Of course, who'd stop me. Alright... </spam>

I know Psychic wasn't one of the choices, but I did it anyway. I picked Treeko as an HM slave and quickly went through until I was able to catch my own Ralts. I trained with Ralts and Treeko until Ralts learned confusion and could battle on her own. In the Petalburg Woods I relized why Ralts wasn't one of the choices when I faced a poocheyena armed only with confusion. I wanted to use Treeko so bad but I remembered the cries of "No matter how hard it is you must not use your starter pokemon" I used up all my moves with Ralts and faced Poocheyena again with no moves at all to help me! Instead I had Ralts struggle away and strike down Poocheyena! I continued to train her until she reached level 16 when I went to take down Geodude and Nosepass. On the 6th time I won. At Dewford I caught and trained an Abra to evolve into Kadabra. I trained Kadabra and Ralts to level 19 and wiped the floor with Brawly. In Mauville I trained the 2 to 25 and managed to defeat Wattson. I went to Fallabor skipping many trainers knowing some new pokemon would need training. I caught a Solrock and Spoink and now everyone is at level 31 ready to take on Flannery! I plan on catching a Baltoy and Meditite to complete my team

Can you do a mono-Psychic team?

Psychic wasnt a choice, but I said Whatever I dont care. Problem is that your going to have to beat Poocheyena with your Ralts using struggle

I just defeated Flannery and Im in Lilycove and my Gardevoir won Master Rank in Smart Contests! All my pokemon are at level 40.

Okay, okay. I know I've never finished this before, but I promise this time to actually stick to this. This time I'll go with the Fighting type Pokemon challenge. Maybe this time I can stick with it....

After starting off my Sapphire journey, I begin by saving the tortured Professer with a Torchic I borrow from him. The battle went by fast, and the little Poochyena wasn't much problem. Birch happily lets me keep the Torchic, but forces me to go battle his daughter. I head off to meet the girl, but end up being side-tracked and manage to raise my little chick to level 8.

As I meet the girl, she immediately challenges me to a battle. Luckily, her little Mudkip is at a low level and is easily beaten. I head back to Birch's lab and I'm given a Pokedex and some Pokeballs. I head off onto the routes and begin my journey. As I do, I can't help but capture things left and right. All of the pokemon I captured are sent to the box, and I continue my quest of raising the best fighting team avaliable. After entering the Petalburg woods, I find a wild Shroomish. Remembering that the little mushroom becomes a fighting type, I instantly snagged the little thing.

Shroomish: (Whoa lucky) Adament nature
L:6
-Absorb
-Tackle

Torchic: (Ehh... not so much) Sassy Nature
L:11
-Scratch
-Ember
-Focus Energy
-Growl
__________________________________________________ _______________
Well, yesterday I was able to get quite a bit done. After a bit of training, I headed over to Rustboro, where the first gym was. Upon arrival, I heal my two pokemon to prepare for the battle. My Shroomish was able to KO the Gym trainer's Geodudes rather easily with Mega Drain. When I challenged Roxanne, I was able to defeat Geodude rather quickly as well. Her Nosepass on the other hand, was more of a hastle.
I started off paralyzing the rock type, then Leeched it. With that done, All I could do was Mega Drain until Nosepass Rock Tombs me to the point of fainting, or until my energy sucking fainted it. Luckily, my strategy worked, and I was able to obtain the badge.

Next, I head off to Dewford to challenge the gym leader there. As I sit on Briney's boat, I plan my strategy to beat him. As we arrived on the island, I head straight over to Dewford's Cave. After a short while of training, I come across what I was searching for, the wild Makuhita. It only took me a little while, but I captured it.
After capturing Makuhita, I head off to train my team of future fighters. After a while, I headed back to Dewford to challenge Brawley. Now with two fighting types, (Torchic evolved) I beleive my team is ready for battle. With the help of Combusken, I defeat the Fighting leader easy.

Now, I head to Mauville, where, after a bit of training, I challenge the Electric leader. Of course, with my all fighting team, (new Breloom!) I KO Brawley's Magnemite with Makuhita, Voltorb with Combusken, and Mageton with a critical Mach Punch from Breloom.

Makuhita: Male/Bold
L:21
- Rock Tomb
- Vital Throw
- Fake Out
- Focus Energy

Combusken: Male/Sassy
L:22
- Ember

- Double Kick

Okay so I'm really late for this (and I'm new too) but I'll give it a shot and try Ground.

Day 1

Chose Mudkip and luckily got Adamant on the first try. Yay! Then picked on Poochy and walked off. Trained to lv7 then beat up Treecko. Tsk tsk.

Route 102, took out Calvin's Zigzagoon and hit LV8. Then took Rick's Wurmple twins out and hit LV9. Then beat up Allen and hit LV10. Whew 3 levels in a row. Picked up the Berries. Then K'Oed Tiana, but no levels. Oh well, can't win them all.

Petalburg City, helped Wally catch that stinkin' Ralts, then hit Youngster Billy and grew to LV11. Then picked up the Berries, and threw away Winston's Zigzagoon to hit LV12.

Squashed Lyle's Wurmple party and blasted Magma's Poochyena and hit LV13. James' Nincada fell to a Water Gun. Cindy's Zigzagoon to 2 Tackles.

Entered Rustboro Gym and took out those Geodudes to get to LV15. Removed Growl for Bide.

Roxanne. Yawn. Geodude to 1 Water Gun, Nosespass to 3. Evolved to Marshtomp and replaced Mud-Slap for Mud Shot.

Captured Nincada, LV7. Used Nincada to take out Jose's group of Bugs and hit LV8.

Well I decided to take on Dark, although it wasn’t given as an option. I can see why, only two dark monsters are available (In Ruby) before reaching the desert.

My game begins. I named myself Brendan, and am obviously therefore, a male trainer. I moved into my new house, set my clock (nice present there “Dad”) and this is where I saved my game.

Now I know this must be terribly frowned upon and if it is… ignore this next section.

I plugged in my Action Replay and placed a Pokeball in my PC.

I went downstairs, and I just missed my “Dad” on the television. Wow, he’s a celebrity!

I went next door to meet my neighbours. Birch wasn’t home but I met his daughter, May.

Birch was being attacked by a Poochyena, so I decided to save him. I chose Treecko and the battle began.

I threw the Pokeball and captured the FIRST Dark Pokemon you encounter in the game!

Pseudo Starter Pokemon: Poochyena

So you see I cheated so that I wouldn’t need to use my actual Starter Pokemon (Treecko) at all.

I went back to Littleroot and talked to the Prof. in his lab. I don’t give my Treecko a nickname, because I plan on depositing him as soon as possible. Birch said that May was waiting for me on Route 103. I left the lab, and walked (very slowly) up through Route 101, and into Odale town.

I visited the Pokecentre to heal Poochyena, and then it was off to meet up with May.

May wasn’t too difficult. I defeated Torchic (my reason for picking a Treecko) with Howl/Tackle and A LOT of Potions. We went back to Odale, I healed Poochyena, and then it was back to Littleroot.

Back in Littleroot I was given a Pokedex, Pokeballs, and a pair of Running Shoes. Nothing left to but say goodbye to “Mom” and to head north.

On Route 101 I caught Zigzagoon my HM Slave and deposited him in Odale for future use.

On Route 102 I caught my second Dark Type (kind of) Seedot! I fight some trainers and then continued along into Petalburg City.

I heal in the Pokecentre and meet my “Dad” for the first time. I also meet “Wally” and I help him catch Ralts, his first Pokemon.
Route 104 was a breeze and so were the Petalburg Woods. Although, I had trouble beating Lady Cindy’s Zigzagoon only using Struggle. Poochyena had fainted, and Seedot was all out of PP for Bide.

I continued north and into Rustborro city. I restored Poochyena and Seedot, and headed towards Roxanne and my first Gym Challenge.

Wow this was intense! Bide wasted Geodude easily, but left Seedot in the red. I switched out for Poochyena and with Sand Attack, gave myself a free turn to heal Seedot. Not a moment too soon either! One Rockthrow and Poochyena was down for the count. Out came a refreshed Seedot! I Hardened and sat back, letting Nosepass hurt itself against Bide. But oh no! Bide was running out of PP and Roxanne healed Nosepass back to 75% it’s strength. I got Nosepass back down in the red and she healed it again! I get it back down for the thrid time but I was all out of PP! Forced to slowly hack away at Nosepass with Nature Power: Swift, I narrowly dodge thrown Rocks and Tomes.

SEEDOT EVOLVED!

This is where my chalenges first leg ends.

Wow this is a lot of text! Next time I prommise I won’t take up as much space. Here is my Dark Team thus far.

Male Lv. 13
Adamant Nature
