The GSC Monotype Challenge

Right, Poke suggested this in the chatroom, and seeing as it's already up in both RBY and in RS, its now coming here too. I expect alot of you will have seen the other topics if not taken part in them, but the rules will be repeated for the sake of those who haven't.


You play through either Gold, Silver or Crystal using Pokémon 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 until you catch a pokemon of your chosen type.
No matter how stuck you get you must not use any other types.
You are allowed to use only ONE set of TMs. This includes trading between other versions of GSC and also RBY.
You cannot trade between versions. As with TMs, you cannot trade a pokemon from RBY over. Trading for evolution is allowed (to get Machamp, Alakazam, Kingdra, Porygon2, etc.)
You may trade between GSC games, so long as you do so only when you reach the place said pokemon would naturally appear (ie you can't get a Skarmory until you reach Blackthorn, etc.)
After you pass certain events or feel the need to update, you may reply to the topic with details on how your progress is going, the status of your team, how hard it is, etc.
Ghost and Dragon teams should not be used due to lack of Pokémon
In the case of a Flying team, you are allowed ONE Legendary Bird OR Dragonite.
Celebi is forbidden from Psychic teams and Grass teams.
Aside from these rules, Lugia and Ho-oh are allowed in Psychic or Fire teams respectivly.
The challenge is considered complete upon reaching, and defeatong, of Red.

I wonder what Porygon will do

I'm thinking about doing a Water team.

Can I trade Eevee to Blue to evolve it to Vaporeon, so I don't miss all its good moves?

Considering I just restarted my a Gold Cart a few days ago and was working on a Fire team, I guess I'll do this.

So obviously, I chose Cyndaquil. I raised it against wild Pokemon until it learned Ember, at which point I burned through Bug Catchers, Sprout Tower, and Falkner. Before Union Cave, Cyndaquil evolved into Quilava, and this and the level advantage made taking down the Rock Pokemon a little easier.

By the time I got to Azalea Town, Team Rocket and Bugsy were no match for Quilava, who was leveled in it's late teens. I raised it to level 24 after my Rival's Croconaw gave it some trouble, but it won in the rematch.

I caught an Oddish as a Cut slave to get through the Ilex Forest, snuck past the next route's trainers so any new Pokemon I caught would have some chances for experience, and ditched the Oddish in the PC in case I needed it to Cut later. I skipped ahead to Route 35 and caught a male Growlithe, but I'm still looking for a female for breeding purposes.

By the way, are you allowed to use the breeding center for Level 5 babies in this challenge?

Trainer: JAZZ
Pokemon:
Hoppit the Quilava, Level 25
Growlithe, Level 13

Well, since I found a pokémon silver cart that I didn't even realise I still owned, with naff all data wise on it, I suppose this will be a good way to kill the weekend I'm stuck on holiday in a caravan (<sarcasm>yippe</sarcasm>)

Since I can't find a way to have a Bayleef and a Ledian in the same monotype team, I guess I'll use grass...yes the Elite 4 is going to slaughter me, but hey, it should be fun...

Like I mentioned quickly earlier, I'm going away on holiday on Thursday-Sunday, so I probably wont update until I get back, but anyway, may as well mention the progress I made today.

Simply picked Chikorita as a starter, and did the usual errand running sequence, raising it to level 11. Stats raising steadily and I am training up in the patches of grass near the dark cave, readying myself for Sprout tower. Hopefully, providing Chikorita has evolved by the time I get to the gym, I shouldn't have a problem.(It has been a good year or so since I've played, so I can't remember many names of the top of my head...after a weekend of playing, it will have all come flooding back, :p)

Taking the challenge up, I will try using Darkness as my type being fully aware that means it'll be me and Umbreon vs. the entire Elite Four.

This should be intersting.

Started off quickly snagging a Cyndaquil which should be able to get me through the game until I can make my way to Ecruteak and finally be able to get an Eevee. I also have a plan to grab a Ditto so I can make it Lv. 5 when I start, which may help slightly.

Beat Falkner with some difficulty, as I'm doing my best not to train Cyndaquil (he was Lv. 12 when I beat him). And am now heading South toward Bugsy.

I'll be starting a Grass Challenge in Crystal.

------------------------------------

Named my character Erika. i'm not a girl in real life, this is just so that getting a female starter is easy. I chose Chikorita, and named her Chik. I went to Mr. Pokemon's house, and Chik was at Level 8. I beat my rival with ease, and continued to Viloet City, where I caught a Bellsprout. I trained a lot, and Chik evolved. I am preparing for my battle against Falkner. Now I have:

Chik, Bayleef, Female, Level 16
Razor Leaf
Tackle
Reflect
Poison Powder

Venus, Bellsprout, Female, Level 14
Sleep Powder

Well, its been a few days and I'd like to say that my training hasn't not existed, no its flourished, friends. ^___^

I'll begin my post with the remainder of Day 1 (it was a very busy day).

I had embedded into my skull the absolute desire to get the Eevee so I could finally train it to become and Umbreon. So, I quickly plowed through all the Gyms taking great care not to defeat too many trainers so that my Eevee would have lots of easy experience when I finally get it. Finally make it to Goldenrod and headed straight for the gym. Whitney seemed especially difficult for my Quilava, but after a few good Smokescreens (and an X Special or two) I finally overtook her cow. Whitney's badge in hand, I practically ran to get the water can so I could get the Sudowoodo out of the way.

But before I did that, I decided that going the long way around (through Violet) was a better course of action (because there is Good experience that way too). So, going the long way, I reached and ran from the Sudowoodo, beat the Pokemaniac with his Drowzee and got to the Pokemon Center to finally meet up with Bill. He left and I once again go the long way to Goldenrod (when I get obsessed with something, I go all out ^_^;; ))

So, I got the Eevee, but me, being a bit on the perfectionistic side, decides I'd rather hatch a Lv. 5 Eevee from an egg. So, I go on a quick adventure, snag a Ditto, and leave the Eevee and Ditto what has got to be the longest wait ever. Seriously, I decided to go all the way to New Bark Town to show Prof. Elm the Togepi that hatched (going the long way again) returned and I still didn't get an Eevee egg. Then, at last, I got my Eevee and in that next instant taught him Headbutt.

With my new baby Eevee I went on a quest to seek out all the trainers I passed up and began leveling him up (which was surprisingly easy). By the end of the day I had defeated almost all the trainers that were accessable and evolved Eevee into Umbreon at Lv. 30.

Afterwards, I went to Morty's and whipped his sorry ***.

Done much since last update.

I beat Falkner, it actually was quite easy. I used Chik against Pidgey, who she beat with ease. I started out with Venus, but to my dismay, was knocked out. I used Chik to finish the stupid lout off. I got Togepi's egg, whcih I immediately deposited in my PC. I continued on to Azalea Town, and by then I had trained so much, that Venus was at Level 20, and Chik Level 21. I tried to beat Bugsy, but was unsucsessful the first time. I tried again, and beat him, by the chance of a lucky critical hit tackle on Scyther. I also beat my rival, who was pretty hard with a Quilava, but I made it through. Venus evolved after this battle.

I found this thread last wednesday and thought it was a cool idea, something new you know? So I picked dark as my poison cause I'm in love with tyranitar and umbreon. I picked cydaquil as my starter to get through Whitney, which he did without too much of a problem (damn rollout). He was 25 at the time I got Eevee from Bill and I proceeded to breed it with a ditto to get a level 5. After I got him, it took a little bit for Eevee to evolve (tried to at 27, but I made it hold off until 30 for bite and confuse ray). After that I pretty much raped all the gyms in Johto. I went into the Elite Four at level 62 and pretty much dominated them (Kage's health only dropped into the yellow twice, when Machamp managed to get through confuse and cross chop him). After beating the Elite Four, I decided to try to beat Ash with only Kage and not the other four dark pokemon. Currently Kage's level 75 with only three gyms left to beat/own in Kanto before heading over to Mt. Silver. I'll post again after I've tried and/or defeaten Ash. Wish me luck.

Ok, so after I posted yesterday I finished up the with the remaining gyms in Kanto, rode my bike down to see Prof. Oak, then went over to Mt. Silver. Kage was level 80 at this point, having defeated every trainer in Kanto. I made my way down to the room with Ash with Kage and a level 5 togepi as a flash *****. I saved and proceeded to fight Ash. Here's the breakdown:
Pikachu - Confused it and used return until it fainted, never hit me
Snorlax - Confused it and used a mix of faint attack and return, hit me with a body slam doing around 50 or so damage
Venusaur - Again, confused it and started using psychic, it managed to get off a sunny day and solarbeam before I fainted it
Charizard - Broke through confusion and got a critical hit flamethrower out while sunny day was still active, left Kage with 41 hp out of 294. Yikes! A full restore or two and a couple returns later it was gone.
Blastoise - Apparently Ash's pokemon are resistant to confuse or something, cause blastoise got a rain dance and surf out before it fainted.
Espeon - Rape
So now I have a level 81 umbreon and no one really left to fightthat I haven't fought already. I'm thinking I may just keep fighting the Elite Four and Ash over and over to get him up to 100, seeing as how I've never had a pokemon get to level 100 before. Good luck to anyone still working on their monotypes.

This might be interesting, I'll start a Flying challenge.
_________________________________________________
I chose Cydaquil as my starter and headed to Mr.Pokemon's house. After getting the Mystery Egg and Pokedex, I headed back to Prof Elm. I was challenged by my rival, and gave the egg to Elm. After recieving some Pokeballs, I decided to catch a flying type. After walking around a bit, I encountered a Pidgey level 5. I captured her and named her Wing. After placing Cyndaquil into the box I trained her to level 7, saved and waited for night to come. After darkness fell, I searched for Hoothoot, which I found and caught rather quickly. My new Hoothoot who I named Talon, Wing, and I headed to Sprout Tower to train.I easily defeated the two gym leaders and I am now training to battle my rival.

Team:

If its like the others then yeah, HM slaves are allowed.

Well, here's an update...
______________________________
I placed Togepi into the PC and went searching for the flying type that can defeat rock/ground types. I know I don't need it at this point but I decided to catch one anyway. After a bit of searching, I found a Hoppip and captured her. After naming her Leaf, I trained my team up a level, and my Hoppip up to level 17.With my team of Hoppip, Hoot-Hoot, and Pidgeotto, I headed to Goldenrod for some more training.

Team:
Hoppip:Leaf Level:17 (F)

Update:
Well, since I don't want to take a risk of double posting, I'lmy update here. I went to the bug catching contest to try to find Scyther. After searching a bit, I found one. Skiploom's sleep powder, and 11 park balls finally caught it. I trained Scyther against the trainers of Goldenrod gym, and when facing Whitney used Fury Cutter and easily defeated her. I placed Skiploom and Pidgeotto within the box, deciding to train them later. Now, I withdraw Togepi and have decided to evolve it.

I just recently joined the forums like 2 days ago and that's when I noticed the thread. And seeing that I found my Silver cart again last week and restarted it then, I figured why not and restarted once more to do this challenge. I began Friday morning and after going through the process of choosing Totodile and getting it up to level 8 from going to get the egg and beating my rival, I decided to go with the Poison type (I really hadn't decided on what mono-type till this moment). So seeing that I'm going with Poison, I figured I'll wait until dark to catch Zubat, totally forgetting that Zubat aren't around routes 29, 30, or 31 at night in Silver. Basically wasted a whole day that I could've used to catch and train a Weedle. Whatever. Night falls and I sneak past 2 of the 3 trainers on route 30. Venture into Dark Cave and caught like 4 Zubat. Keeping the best two (one male, one female) for myself. Decided to train the male cause he had the better stats, even if every stat was exactly the same as the female save attack which was 1 point more.

Trained Zubat with the help of Totodile on wild 'mon from level 2 till level 6. Didn't deposit Totodile into box till Zubat got to level 8. Beat remaining trainers on Routes 30 and 31. Rested up before going into Sprout Tower to catch some Gastly, seeing how it was night already. Caught three level 3 Gastly, kept 2 (one male, one female). Decided to train the female because her special defense was higher by 1 point even though this was evened out by her 1 point lower defense. Trained Gastly till she was level 8 and then ran through the Tower with level 10 Zubat, level 8 Gastly. Relatively simple with Gastly beating down all the monks' Bellsprout with hypnosis and lick. Elder gave me trouble. At least his Hoothoot did. Had to use 5 potions on Zubat because Supersonic either didn't work or if it did, Hoothoot never hurt itself in the confusion. Stuck it out though and eventually won. Resting till morning so I can get Weedle. That way challenge Falkner with Zubat and Beedrill. Right now I'm just randomly training because I have no idea on EVs and what Pokemon give what EV values. Or which stats I should focus on the most for my team.

Current team:
L11 ;041; - Leech Life, Supersonic
L10 ;092; - Hypnosis, Lick, Spite

I'm bored and I have nothing better to do. So I'm writing my entries in the style of Pokemon Adventures summaries from Pokespecial, and at the end of each entry including info in the style of Coronis' character bios (except including my Pokemon's attacks also).

Round 1: Versus Chikorita

Characters involved: Almond, Mom, Professor Elm, Pistachio
Pokemon involved: Totodile, Chikorita, Weedle (Biiko), Kakuna, Ledyba (Retiko)

Almond, your average 10-year-old boy from New Bark Town, is sent on a mission by Professor Elm: To go to Mr. Pokemon and see what he emailed Elm about. Almond is given a Totodile to aid him in this quest. Outside of Elm laboratories, he sees a boy with long red hair peeking in a window, but when he tries to approach the boy, the boy pushes him away and yells, "Don't go poking into other people's business!"

Almond arrives at Mr. Pokemon's house north of Cherrywood City and receives a strange egg, as well as a Pokedex from Professor Oak, who's too much of a lazy bum to catalogue Pokemon himself. Almond sees this as a great opportunity to fulfill his dream of becoming the world's greatest Bug-type Pokemon Trainer (a dream, actually, which he just randomly made up on the spot) and returns toward New Bark with the egg after a phone call from a distressed Elm. On the way, though, he runs into the boy from before. Introducing himself as Pistachio, the boy challenges Almond to a Pokemon battle! After Almond's Totodile defeats his Chikorita, the boy leaves, saying he's going to become the world's greatest Pokemon Trainer.

Arriving back in New Bark, Almond finds out that that boy stole the Chikorita from Elm! After talking briefly with the police, he gives the egg to Elm, gets some Poke Balls from Elm's assistant, and sets off on his journey. He catches a Weedle and names it Biiko, and decides to release Totodile, as it isn't a Bug type. He trains and evolves Biiko into a Kakuna, and catches a Ledyba named Retiko also. No matter how hard he searches, though, he can't find a Spinarak anywhere. (Only later does he realise you can't get them in Silver.) After much battling of wild Pokemon, Almond comes to Violet City, location of the first Gym!


Pokedex completion level:
11 Pokemon seen
4 Pokemon owned

Pokemon in Almond's party:

Biiko (Kakuna) / Male / Level 9
Evolved from Weedle in Round 1: Versus Chikorita
Knows: Poison Sting / String Shot / Harden

Retiko (Ledyba) / Male / Level 10
Caught in Round 1: Versus Chikorita

Update -
Caught a Weedle in the morning and then trained up my team till Weedle evolved into Beedrill at level 10, till Zubat learned Bite at level 12, and til Gastly reached level 11. Challenged Falkner and basically cleared through the gym using only Zubat with Bite. Headed through route 32, adding Ekans to my team along the way. Made it through Union Cave easily, almost as easily as I cleared out Team Rocket from Slowpoke Well. Afterwards, did some training in the Well getting my team stronger, Togepi hatching and being deposited in the box, till finally heading over to Azalea with my team at L13 Ekans, L14 Gastly, L14 Beedrill, and L16 Zubat.

Bugsy's Metapod and Kakuna were no challenge for my Ekans and Beedrill respectively. Scyther however Fury Cutter'ed through Beedrill then Gastly. Zubat was able to emerge victorious when Fury Cutter missed and I managed to confuse Scyther. Then I just bit my way to victory. Ran into rival leaving Azalea and beat him, even though his Zubat took out my Gastly. But it evened out when my L14 Ekans beat his L17 Bayleef with just Poison Sting. Got Cut and Charcoal and caught a Paras as a HM slave for Cut.

Waited till night so I could add Oddish to my team. Trained her up to L15 in the Slowpoke Well against Magikarp till she got strong enough to take on the Goldeen (because of Peck). Next, passed through Ilex Forest, grabbed Headbutt, and cleared through the trainers on route 34. Once in Goldenrod City, I picked up my free bike and the radio card before making my way to the name rater to give nicknames to my team. When I got that taken care of, went through the Underground Path and cleared it out. Also recored Bill's phone number. Next step is onto Whitney and the Normal-type gym.

Challenged Whitney, Echo defeating Clefairy and Spectra taking care of the cow with Hypnosis and Curse. Afterwards got the squirtbottle and headed through route 35, picking up the guard's Spearow with the mail for his friend. Next was the National Park and route 36, taking care of all the trainers there as well. Captured Sudowoodo and dumped it in the box. Rode back to New Bark Town to show Elm the Togepi, delivering mail to the guy to get TM50. Headed back to route 36 to catch both Nidoran(M) & Nidoran(F) as well as to train my team on the Abra's and Drowzee's in the area. Chose my Nidoran(F) and while I was hunting for one more Nidoran(M) so I could a decision between 3 of them, Arnie calls me up to let me know there's a swarm of Yanma in the area. Although I could care less seeing that they aren't Poison-types. Anyways, got the Nidoran(M) I wanted, switched out Beedrill, and headed towards Ecruteak. Leveling up my team to level 20 along the way. Except for the Nidorans. Met up with Bill and then took my team to battle the Eevee Sisters. Defeated them relatively easily. Vipra having some trouble with the Espeon but because of Quick Claw and Bite, was able to win. Odelia taking out Vaporean and Jolteon quite easily. After that was all said and then, Odelia tried to evolve but I stopped it. Rather my team learn all their moves first before evolving. Or at least the moves I want them to learn. Got Surf and now it's off to train in the wild for my upcoming match with Morty.

Meh. *is too lazy to keep typing in the chaptered manner*

After raising my Pokemon to level fourteen and having Biiko evolve into Beedrill, (fighting a Flying-type Gym Leader is no fun when you're a Bug Catcher), I decided to go get that Flash HM. Then I fought Falkner and headed south. Some guy using an obsolete second-person pronoun (remember, Japanese version) stopped me and said some guy with glasses was waiting for me at the Pokemon Center. Sigh. So I got the stupid Togepi egg and stuck it in Bill's PC, then continued on toward Azalea.

Retiko evolved into Ledian in Union Cave. I fought Team Rocket at the Slowpoke Well, blah blah, beat Bugsy (squee! I love that Gym so much! *cuddles all the cute little bugs*), beat Pistachio again, and headed into Ilex Forest. Whilst herding the lost Farfetch'd, I ran into a wild Paras! I caught her with a Great Ball (overkill? Moi?) and named her Parako, and taught her Cut to get through the forest. I taught Retiko the Headbutt TM, but I never did find any Pineco. (T_T)

I quickly made my way to Goldenrod and went on a shopping spree at the mall and underground. Then, since it was Tuesday, I entered the Bug Catching Contest with my Biiko.

*happy sigh* There were so many darling Bug Pokemon there.... First I caught a level 17 Metapod. Then I tragically parted with her for a level 14 Pinsir. Then I ran across the most adorable Caterpie evar (level 17). I caught her, and continued to catch a Venonat, but not replace the Caterpie, in order to get more info in my Pokedex. I'm going back tomorrow, of course. Caterpie didn't win, but it was worth it. I named him Piiko. After a bit of training, he evolved into a Metapod and then a Butterfree. During my training, I got Bug Catcher Youta's phone number so he can call me when there's a Yanma swarm. (Sue me for forgetting his English name.)

Next stop was Goldenrod Gym, to fight Whitney. Parako made quick work of her Clefairy, but the Miltank knocked out Parako, Piiko, and Retiko with Rollout. Fortunately Biiko was spared somehow, and he used the Fury Cutter he'd learned from Bugsy's TM to do just what Whitney was dishing out but couldn't take. After she whined, I got my Badge, and then the Squirtbottle. Retiko killz0red Sudowoodo. My next stop will be Ecruteak City!


Pokemon:

Piiko (Butterfree) / Male / Level 20
Tackle / String Shot / Flash / Attract

Parako (Paras) / Female / Level 20
Scratch / Cut / Leech Life / Poisonpowder

Retiko (Ledian) / Male / Level 21
Headbutt / Confusion / Comet Punch / Swift

Biiko (Beedrill) / Male / Level 22

Trained around routes 38 and 39 before finally going to take on Morty's gym. Echo and Vipra leading the way. Within the gym, Vipra learned Glare at level 23 before I finally let her evolve into Arbok. Echo went up to level 26. After beating Morty, went to Burnt Tower (catching a Raticate for Rock Smash first in route 39) and beat up my rival. Echo made it to level 27 where he learned Wing Attack and evolved to Golbat. Kicked the legendaries out the tower and then headed towards Olivine. Didn't have enough berries for the Miltank so I did what I could before proceeding. Asked the sailor for strength which I then taught to Raticate as a slave and picked up the good rod. Went to lighthouse to meet up with Jasmine, Echo evolving into Crobat at level 28. Spoke with Jasmine and left. Switched out Spectra for Totodile to use as a Surf slave and surfed over to Cianwood. Dumped Totodile in the box and got the Shuckle for safekeeping. Dumped that in the box as well and training my other team members up for the battle with Chuck. In hindsight, should've caught a flying pokemon to slave for Fly. Eh.

I come to you live from Route 42, where I arrived upon deciding to randomly journey through that cave thingy (Suribachi Yama!) east of Ecruteak... even though I haven't battled Morty yet. Eh, I was bored.

Not much has happened since my last update, except I caught a Venonat in the Bug-Catching Contest and named her Panko. I also fought the Eevee Sisters, and was shocked to find that their Japanese names are different from their English names. Good going, NoA -- you changed five Japanese names to five different Japanese names! *rolls eyes* In Japanese they have the same names as on the anime -- Sakura, Koume, Satsuki, Tamao, and Sumomo. I beat them all and got my Pokemon levelled up and the Surf HM yey!

Soon I shall journey back through Suribachi Yama to Ecruteak and fight Morty. Should be fun.

Major Update -
Did stuff. Got all 8 Johto badges without much training up of my team. Basically challeneged the Elite Four with Crobat the only one over level 40, and I evolved Nidoran(M) @ level 38 when he learned Horn Drill into Nidoking. My Crobat basically taking out the Elite Four more or less by itself and going up 7 levels from level 44 to level 51 after beating Lance. The final battle with Lance was tough though. Echo took out his Gyarados easily, after that, it went all downhill. Damn Hyper Beam on all his team members. Everybody got knocked out except for Echo by the time I got to his last Dragonite. Fortunately I had some Max Potions and I just used Wing Attack and Bite to take it out, seeing that I ran out of PP for Confuse Ray.

**UPDATE**

So, uh yeah. Collected all 8 Kanto badges, challenged and defeated Red earlier today. And who said Poison-types suck? What's surprising, even to me, was the team I beat him with. Nevermind the fact that I restarted the game 5 times before finally getting lucky against Espeon with Confuse Ray/Bite. And once that was out the way, my Poison team had nothing really to worry about.

Champion Team:
Echo L65(M) ;169; @ King's Rock
- Confuse Ray, Bite, Mean Look, Wing Attack
My MVP (Most Valuable Pokemon) that did most of the work. Went up to level 65 when he defeated Red's L81 Pikachu. Hooray for Confuse Ray and Bite. Also took down Espeon, Snorlax, Blastoise, and Venusaur. With a little help from the other team members, Hyper Potions, and 1 Full Revive of course.

Pincushion L45(M) ;034; @ Ice Berry
- Focus Energy, Horn Drill, Horn Attack, Double Kick

Spectra L41(F) ;093; @ Amulet Coin
- Hypnosis, Dream Eater, Confuse Ray, Mean Look
Helped out against Snorlax. Went up to Level 41 during that battle.

Vipra L42(F) ;024; @ Quick Claw
- Poison Sting, Bite, Screech, Glare

Man-O-War L44(F) ;073; @ Mystic Water
- Acid, Supersonic, Surf, Barrier
Mad props to this Tentacruel for handling Red's L77 Charizard. It was a tough battle, but thank goodness for Surf.

Stantler L15(M) ;234;
- Tackle, Leer, Hypnosis, Flash
And who could forget my handy dandy Flash slave? If it wasn't for this guy I wouldn't have made it through Silver Cave in the dark.

And now that I have completed the 2004 G/S/C Monotype Challenge, I'm going to Disney World! That and working on my Possible Team from the RMT forum.

Update, but a short one: I'm at Cinawood, I've got 5 pogeys to abide by the rules, and yeah. Lapras, Slowpoke, Tentacool, and Quagsire are all at L. 27, and Crocanaw is at L. 30. [edit: the 6th rotates between utility pokemon.]

After I complete Kanto, I'm looking for a more challenging type, 'cuz water is proving REALLY easy. Anybody wanna give me input or a suggestioN?

The world's greatest Pokemon Trainer, the Incredibly Slow Almond, comes to you again with yet another report of his greatness!

Caught Pinsir (Kaiko) and Scyther (Saiko, as in Psycho) in the Bug-Catching Contest.

I have defeated Morty and earned a Fog Badge (though its Japanese name, Phantom Badge, is way cooler). I bought a Dratini at the casino to use as a Surf slave and fetched Jasmine's potion for her; in the process, I took Mania's Shuckle, Nesshii, under my wing (so to speak); having a Rock-type really helps counter those stupid weaknesses to Flying and Fire that most Bugs have. I also caught a Pidgey to use as a Fly slave, once I beat Chuck. Then I fought Pistachio in the Burned Tower and accidentally disturbed some random scary big dog Pokemon.

I defeated the Red Gyarados without capturing it and found the Red Scale (what exactly is it used for, anyway?). Then some weirdo in a wannabe-superhero costume, calling himself Lance (Wataru-sama! Wai wai!) came and asked for my help in defeating Team Rocket. I didn't have anything better to do, so I agreed, and I am currently in the bowels of their Mahogany hideout. I just got the password "Sakaki-sama Bansai" from the talking Murkrow and am about to go kill a bunch of Electrode. While fighting Team Rocket, Parako evolved into Parasect. Yay!

Well, i start on the bug challenge last night, taking full advantage of stadium's hyper mode and seeing as it took me about 4 hours to reach Olivine i think i have a bit of material.

So, I started with Totodile (headbutt, surf) and beat up my rival, so on so fourth.. however as it was infact 9 at night there was only one bug i could find, Spinarak who is a huge fave of mine anyway so i started leveling him up, stomping the bellsprout tower and alot of wild pokemon outside of Violet city. Needless to say a level 22 Ariados truly kicked falkners you-know-what to the dark side.

Anyways i crashed my way through the tunnel using night shade where nescessary and poison sting anywhere else, i immediately went to rescue the slowpokes with curt which was fairly simple especially after getting leech life to kill those nasty non-poisons the rockets bring, i recieved a lure ball and curt decided to get started on a Fast ball for me using a white apricorn, as i left town my rival who is called Stu came and took his shot at me, as you can imagine my Ariados crushed him easily enough, i went into the forest and used my leech life to catch a venonat (darn that was hard to do), so i spent some time running around training him and getting the togepi back to Elm, he was about level 15 when i got back on course.

After chomping my way through the forest i had little difficulty with the trainers outside of it (1 hit kills for Ariados, 3 for venonat who was relying on supersonic/tackle at the time) and i proceeded to heal at goldenrod (yay, i needed that) then i went north and crushed everyone between me and the national park, along with everyone IN the national park (warning, do not try and do this all at once).

Anyway with these pokemon i had a shot at whitney
Ariados (level 27)
Poison String, Leech Life, Night Shade, and Scary Face

Venonat (level 23)
Poison Powder, Confusion, Super Sonic, Tackle

Totodile (level 12, hadn't raised since catching Spinarak)
Headbutt, other totodile moves which ive forgotten lol!

Bellsprout (level 7, used for CUT)
Cut, Growth, Vine Whip, ??(forgot again)

Kicked things off with venonat which entirely kicked clefairy outta here, then Ariados cleaned up on Miltank getting it poisoned and then just leeching to the finish.

Anyways, i got the plain badge and squirt bottle and went north to stamp out the tree, which wasnt hard, the twin sisters were tough but i got through them anyways, the psychic's drowzee was a 1 hit ko for ariados so i proceeded to stomp my way into ecutrek, i went and caught a ledyba who i had bought tm thunderpunch and icepunch for so it was immediately strong enough to train to level 22 and to be a Ledian, i also caught a pineco and leveled everyone up a bit, after my rival and all the trainers in the Ecutrek gym and most of the route to Olivine my actually battlers were Ariados(level 31), Ledian (level 26), Venomoth (level 31) and Pineco (level 15).

Morty was pretty easy, confusions from venomoth and punches from ledian messed with his head then i got him with a couple of nightshades from Dos and it was over, i stomped my way down to Olivine City, told Stu he was a <censored> and got the strength TM, and thats where play picks up Today!

Since I'm doing Bug on Sapphire,
I'm doing Poison on Crystal.


DAY ONE (or should I say NIGHT ONE) ... lol. :cool:
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

I started off calling myself Jessie ( as in Team Rocket) and choosing Chikorita. I trained him to level 9 after getting the map card and schooling the red head.

I called the rival Ash (get it?) and decided to catch a female Bellsprout. It was the first poke I ran into and I caught it. :)

Inside Dark Cave I searched for a Zubat for ages, while training Bellsprout against the many Geodude that came my way. I managed to catch a level 2 male Zubat in a Poke Ball.

I then went to Sprout Tower to catch some Gastly and choose the best one. A male level 5 Gastly was really quick and had the best stats.I trained hard and managed to beat Falkner with a level 14 Zubat with Bite and Supersonic combo. I waited until morning before adding a nice female Ekans to my team. I stopped here.
(Who would Jessie be without a nice poisonous snake with her?)

Use Slude Bomb as a STAB.
and Bite for flinching.

Well, it's time for the weekly or more likely 8 daily writeup and boy do i have a lot to say about bug teams.

After crushing morty i continued to smash my way with venonat, Ariados and ledian until i finally caught scyther in the bug catching contest so i leveled him up, completed the tower in Olivine, surfed my way down to cianwood and crushed everything there especially eusine for being a brat.

Stomped back to olivine and lamented the lack of water bug types before crushing jasmine with a great display of Ariados going off as i thought it should be called, nightshade owns at level 35-45 :).

Stomped over to mahogany while avoiding certain entities (caves) because i really couldnt be bothered getting a tyrogue i'd never use anyway, went to mahogany and caught red gyara for pokedex, left in centre with ditto who i nabbed earlier and stomped the rocket hideout.

Crushed price in my sleep with alot of thunder punches from ledian and a few nightshades from ariados, anyway went and booted the rockets out of thier hidy hole and then went straight on to destroy the dragon weilding idiots in blackthorn, spent a LONG time training up below blackthorn to get pineco to forretress and level 42 along with my other 3 bugs, anyway i went i saw and i caught suicune for waterfall/whirlpool/surf to get around, went off and booted the pokemon league and crushed the kanto gyms before moving along to leveling up again (4 level 60 bug types will NOT be beating red anytime soon).

This is my 1st Monotype Challenge so I decided to use my favourit type - Grass. I played Crystal. I started 4 days ago.
DAY 1
First I set my character as a boy and named his TRAWTOM.I set Sunday 6:00 AM. For my starter I picked ;152;-Chikorita (female - for breeding) and named her LATOROSL. On the way to Mr. Pokemon I trained Chikorita to Lv.11... and obtained all of berries. After obtained a Pokedex and Mystery Egg I returned to Cherrygrove (Where are Quagsire?!) and met my rival - ???. Battle was very easy beacuse my LATOROSL had 6 levels more than Cyndaquil.
In Elm's Laboratory I heard the Cyndaquil I beat while was stolen by ???. I named my rival TRE-NER and handed Mystery Egg to Elm. After that I finally received Poke-Balls and I finally could catch Pokemon !!! I beat trainers on Route 30 and 31 and got phone number of Joey. On the grass before Violet City I met male ;069;-Bellsprout on Lv.5. My LATOROSL reduced his HP to orange. I said to oneself "It's now or never" and I threw a Poke-Ball. Poke-Ball shook three times and Bellsprout was mine!!! I named his DZWONEK. I healed my Pokemon to perfect health and came back for train and... Hoppip.
When DZWONEK got Lv.7 he met female ;187;-Hoppip. After while she was mine. I named her FRUWACZ. Next I went sleep.
DAY 2
This day isn't interesting. Only thing I did was training all my Pokemon to Lv.14. This was really boring but I thought, later will be easy. This was my mistake...
DAY 3
Day of challenges! First I healed my Pokemon and went to Sprout Tower. On sages LATOROSL and FRUWACZ gained a Lv.15. Before battle against ELDER I met TRE-NER but this coward use ESCAPE ROPE and disappeared on my sight!!! OK, I defeated ELDER only with DZWONEK and he gained a new level. I obtained a HM05 and abandoned tower.
After healing I challenged Violet Gym. I beat adepts and battle 2vs.2 against Falkner started. First I use LATOROSL against Pidgey. I beat him easily and Falkner use next Pidgeotto. Battle was very furious but, unfortunately, Pidgeotto win with medium HP. It was time for my secret weapon - FRUWACZ. With TACKLE he won and Zephyr Badge was mine!!! I received TM31 and went out of Gym. Next my phone call and Prof. Elm told me about Mystery Egg. I received it in Pokemon Center, healed my Pokemon and went on south to Azalea. I reached to Pokemon Center before Union Cave, beat all trainers on the way and received an OLD ROD. In the end of one battle LATOROSL gained Lv. 16 and evolved into ;153;-Bayleef. This was the end of day 3.
DAY 4
Day in Azalea! First I reached to Union Cave and completed it with few problems with firebreathers. Next I defeated Anthony and took his number.
I pass Slowpoke Well and healed my Pokemon. I went to Ilex forest to catch Paras and Oddish. After few bugs I met male ;046;-Paras on Lv.6. Beacuse my Pokemon have Lv.17 I caught him easily, named GRZYBCIO and trained him to Lv.15.
After that I went to Kurt's house and told him about Slowpoke Well invaded by Team Rocket. He went to it, so did I. GRZYBCIO defeated three Rocket Grunts, but fainted on Koffing. LATOROSL won and Team Rocket escaped from Slowpoke Well. I received from Kurt Lure Ball and went to Azalea Gym.
Adepts are simillar to this from Violet Gym - very weak. Before battle against Bugsy I stored FRUWACZ into Box.
Battle 3vs.3 started. First was DZWONEK vs. Metapod. After few WRAP Metapod fainted. As easy as before DZWONEK defeated Kakuna. Scyther beat DZWONEK with few FURY CUTTER. GRZYBCIO hold out 2 and LATOROSL only one FURY CUTTER!!! I thought: "I lose!? It can't be!!!". But I came to a few conclusions. Battle in that same squad started. First, LATOROSL defeated Metapod, but lost against Kakuna. GRZYBCIO won and I used DZWONEK against Scyther. In first round I used SLEEP POWDER. Next I used WRAP and SLEEP POWDER when Scyther woke up. DZWONEK wins battle and I received TM49 and Hive Badge!!!!!
I took FRUWACZ from Box and met TRE-NER. I defeat his Gastly and his second Pokemon (I don't remember which Pokemon it was) by LATOROSL. Next Quilava defeated LATOROSL, GRZYBCIO and DZWONEK but fortunately FRUWACZ won! After battle FRUWACZ evolved into ;188;-Skiploom! Yeah!!!
Next I saved Farfetch'd in Ilex forest and received HM01. I used it on GRZYBCIO and I finished the game in that day.

My team:
;153;(female) LATOROSL Lv.18
-TACKLE
-POISONPOWDER
-RAZOR LEAF
-REFLECT

;069;(male) DZWONEK Lv.19
-VINE WHIP
-GROWTH
-WRAP
-SLEEP POWDER

;188;(female) FRUWACZ Lv.18
-POISONPOWDER
-SYNTHESIS
-SLEEP POWDER
-TACKLE

;046;(male) GRZYBCIO Lv.18
-SCRATCH
-STUN SPORE
-POISONPOWDER

I have one question. When I have a TM contains Headbutt can I teach it to Pokemon? I need it, beacuse I want to have Exegcute.

Please, forgive me if I make a spelling mistake.

You can get headbutt and teach it to something,

I think the rules should be rewritten slightly to increase the number of type challenges possible. Take ice for instance. The first one you come across is Lapras. If you were allowed to import a level 5 delibird or Sneasel with no taught TMs/HMs or breed moves at the beginning, an ice type challenge would be possible but difficult. Perhaps there could be an approved list of these rare types for import.

I haven't seen Normal types, so I'll do that.

Day 1: Went in Professor Birch's lab and got a Totodile. Delivered the egg to Mr. Pokemon...blah blah blah, you know the drill. I beat my rival's Chikorita and named him Duncan. Got Pokeballs from Birch's assistant and went out into the wild. I caught a Hoothoot and named it Hooter and a Rattata (Fang).
Walked to Violet City, and leveled my Pkmn up. I deposited my Totodile and went to Sprout Tower. I kicked vine there and got HM05. Easily beat Falkner and his two trainers. I got the egg from Birch's assistant and kept going on. Battled some trainers and finally made it to Azalea town. Caught a Spearow when it was day, and named it Aeria. My pokestats so far:

Rattata (FANG):
L15 HP:35 AT:27 DE:21 SPD:28 SPA:17 SPDE:20
Attacks: Tackle, Tail Whip, Quick Attack, Hyper Fang
Hoothoot (HOOTER) L12 HP:39 AT:15 DE:13 SPD:21 SPA:15 SPDE:20
Attacks: Tackle, Growl, Peck, Foresight
Egg: ???
Spearow (AERIA): L6 HP:21 AT:13 DE:8 SPD:14 SPA:9 SPDE:9
Attacks: Peck, Growl

Day 2: Azalea Town
I went to Kurt and talked to him and he ran to Slowpoke Well, taking the guard down with him. I followed and proceeded to defeat the rockets one by one. No major problems. I got the lure ball from Kurt, and went to the gym. Bugsy's trainers were easily beaten, thanks to Aeria's pecks, and I went on to battle Bugsy. His Metapod was easy, though after that, he sent out his Scyther, and Aeria was down with one quick attack. (Curse you, critical hit!)
Then I sent out Hooter, and he was down with one or two critical hit Quick Attacks. ( What, is he holding scope lens?) Then succes came when Fang Hyper Fanged him down and his Kakuna too! I got the Hive Badge, and TM 49 Fury Cutter! I rested my Pkmn at the Pkmn Center, and went on to Ilex Forest. I battled Duncan on the way there, and I defeated him, no problem! I then went into Ilex Forest, led the Farfetch'd back to its owner, and got HM01 Cut and Charcoal when I went back to Azalea. I withdrew my Totodile and taught him Cut. I then went through the forest, got TM02 Headbutt, and...Huh?
*Evolution Music* *Egg cracks* *Togepi Hatches!* *Victory Music*
I named him Chriki (don't ask), taught him Mud Slap and Headbutt, and went on to Goldenrod City. I revived my pokemon, got a bike, and started training on the route below, while also looking for a Ditto. I found three, but I defeated one and ran out of balls on the other two.XD Oh well. I trained in the underground passage, and after I finished, I decided to train on the upper route.

After battling for a while, I remembered ther was a Bug-Catching-Contest today! I joined with my trusty Hoothoot, who now knew Hypnosis, and Hypnotized a Weedle, a Metapod, and a boring, lousy, old, rotten, L13 Pinsir. Wait a minute. A Pinsir?! I throw lots of Park Balls at it, and caught it asleep with full Hp. I won second in the contest.

After battling all the trainers I could, including the ones in the Gym, I decided to go catch a Ditto. After searching and searching and searching, I finally found one, caught it, and named it Copysplat. I then went on to battled Whitney, and I defeated her! Though my birds were a little bit challenged by Rollout, Hooter put her to sleep, and it wis pretty easy then.

I got the Plain Badge and Tm...something Attract. I went to the plant house and got the Squirtbottle. Defeated Sudowoodo and got TM Rock Smash. I went to Ecruteak City and decided to go battle the Kimono Girls. Copysplat dominted the dancers' Eeveelutions by Transforming into them and using Sand Attack then Tailwhip then Tackle. It was defeated by Umbreon though, but Fang defeated him in return. I got HM03 Surf, healed my pokemon, and went to battle my rival and Burnt Tower. I kicked his behind with ease and then there was a DOUBLE EVOLUTION! Okay, so it's not that exciting. Fang evolved into Raticate, and Hotter evolved into Noctowl. I then released the Legendary Dogs and healed my Pkmn. I went to battle Morty. All was well until I got to his Gengar. He kept using Hypnosis, but After using some Full Heals and an Awakening, Chriki still stood strong, though after I ran out of Sleep healing items, he defeated Chriki, and then Copysplat too. Hooter finally triumphed over him, and I got the Fog Badge and TM Shadow Ball! Aeria also evolved into Fearow! Woohoo!
After that, I went to the Ruins of Alph to get a Smeargle. I found an caught one. Here are my stats so far:

Raticate (FANG) L20
Hyper Fang, Rock Smash, Tackle, Quick Attack

Fearow (AERIA) L20

Day 3: Lance the Loser

I beat Chuck in Cianwood and gto HM02 Fly. Taught it to Aeria. After that, I gave the Secretpotion to Jasmine, she revived Amphy, and went down to the Gym. I lost after challenging her a few times , so I went to Mahogany Town to train. Beat the Red Gyrados, and found Lance the Coward. I mean, I bet you he was hiding the whole time I was fitghting Gyrados cause he was scared. Any way, he faked braveness and commanded me to meet him back in town. What a boss. I caught with him, and he yelled at me for being late, and said that I was a little scaredy-cat for not getting their sooner. Ironic. He then claimed that he busted down the door, karate-kicked the two guys in the room out of the way, and stomped on the floor to open up a secret door. But he did'nt know that there was a video camera in the room and after I reviewed the tape, I saw that he just walked in through the door and scared the people inside because he burped. The secret door opened because the manager ran away through that passage. Anyway, I beat some rockets, and then Lance gave me some medicine to revive my Pokemon with it. I threw it away when I saw it was labled "Salt Water". Double-Crosser. I found the passwords, and faced a Rocket Executive. Lance also faced one, but he paid the guy to let him win. He then said he would go discharge some of the Electrodes that were making the evil broadcast, and told me to destroy the others. He wouldn't let me go to his side to see what he was doing, but I saw him burping to make them go away. He gave me HM Whirpool after that, and said that he was giving it to me because he felt sorry for me. Liar.

Wow not many people update after their first post do they

In anwsering to someones question you can get phanphy in the morning on route 45 in the beginning of the game and cubone from the goldenrod game corner. I never traded

Anyway I decided to do a Psychic monotype challenge this time!

I went to the lab chose cyndaquil did the errand and trained from wild pokemon up to level 12 and squashed falkner.

Then I went to azaela (leaving many trainers behind) and cleared out the Rockets and caught a slowpoke. WIth a few trainers and wild pokemon I got him to level 17 and beat Bugsy.

I used cyndaquil as a cut slave and again left some trainers behind for my future Abra,smoochum, and drowzee. I first saved, got the odd egg, and kept walking around until the egg hatched. After 4 tries I got a smoochum.

I then used Smoochums lick to paralyze an abra so I could catch one and later in the night I got drowzee. I taught Abra thunderpunch and with old trainers+day care+wild pokemon I trained all the pokemon to level 20. Unfortunately stupid daycare erased my kadabras confusion!

With the trainers and wild pokemon in Goldenrod I trained them to level 26 and gave drowzee (who evolved into Hypno) fire punch and smoochum ice punch. I creamed whitney and got the watering can and taught smoochum attract and beat suddowoodo.

In ekruteak I got eevee and bred him with cyndaquil for a level 5 eevee. I spent a month trying to evolve that pokemon at a low level and I succeeded by evolvign him at level 13 into Espeon.

I went to Olivine and caught a Staryu which would evolve into Starmie. Trained all pokes to level 32 before challenging (and crushing) Morty. I even saw Raikou before I set him free. I taught espeon shadow ball even tho I should have taught it to Hypno.

By completing Jasmines errand I trained all my pokemon to level 38 (and evolved Smoochum using a Everstone so she'll learn psychic and evolved Slowpoke into Slowbro) I taught Hypno dynamic punch to use against Karen.

With another quick 2 level ups I got them to level 40 and crushed Jasmine. I taught Espeon iron tail in the way. I did all the Mahagony crap and beat Pryce with level 45 pokemon and taught Staryu icy wind and got tullys number so he would hopefully call soon with a water stone.

I trained heavily in Blackthorn and the ice caves until they all reached level 51. With my powerhouse pokemon I beat Clair and on my way to the elite four I got a call from Tully with a water stone which I used to evolve Staryu. With level 54 pokemon I crushed the elite four members liek a common gym leader. Not a single pokemon fainted and the only pokemon that gave me trouble was Wills jynx whose lovely kiss put Hypno to sleep and after I awakened him her ice punch froze him.

This is the good old team that beat the first half of the game for me!

I am doing the Fire Challenge on my Crystal.
------------------------------------

Day 1

I named my character Charles

So obviously, I chose Cyndaquil who I named Cinders.

Before Sprout Tower or Falkner, caught a male Growlithe in the patch of grass on rout 36 that is east of Suodowood who I named rookie after my dog.

Cinders evolved into Quilava, before I challenged the Sprout tower or Falkner which both got crushed by the team work of Cinders and Rookie

By the time I got to Azalea Town, Team Rocket and Bugsy were no match for Cinders, or Rookie who was leveled in it's late teens. I raised Cinders to level 22 after my Rival's Croconaw gave it some trouble, but he won anyways

I caught an Bellsprout as a Cut slave to get through the Ilex Forest, snuck past the next route's trainers so any new Pokémon I caught would have some chances for experience, and ditched the Bellsprout in the PC in case I needed it to Cut later.

Then I after six failed attempts to get a Magby I got one, and I am traing it at the moment.

So my crenate team looks like this:

Trainer: Charles
Pokémon:
Cinders the Quilava, Level 22
@Charcoal
Ember
Quick attack
Smoke Screen
leer

Rookie the Growlithe, Level 18
@ berry
Ember
Bite
head butt
Roar

Burns the Magby, Level 12
Ember
leer
Thunder punch

24th December 2004, 8:24 PM
I started a mono-fighting on my crystal. So I started out as a girl (I randomly chooose genders, lol :p) and set the time to 6:00 even though it was 11:00 am when I started. I picked chikorita, did all of elms stuff, and caught a poliwag since this is crystal. I trained poliwag to level 11, then demolished all the trainers and beat falkner with my new water gun attack I learned at lv 13. I beat all the trainers up till bugsy, and beat her by water gunning the cacoons and putting scyther to sleep the killing it. Then I beat my rival with ease, and continued to goldenrod with poliwag at lv 22. Now, I spent the next 2 days continously restarting to get tyrogue from the odd egg of finding a heracross. Then I finally got the tyrogue trained it lv 20 and it surprisingly evolved into a Hitmontop. The next morning I finally found a Heracross and beat all of sprout tower with it since I didn't beat it with poliwag. I trained both Hitmontop and Heracross to lv 22 along with poliwag in the same tree I found Heracross in, all I ever found seemed to be Heracross in that tree. I then beat every trainer in goldenrod and poliwag evolved into Poliwhirl. I also nicknamed Poliwhirl Crusher, Heracross Hercules, and Hitmontop Spinner. I beat Whitney with ease using poliwhirls headbutt and hypnosis. I went on and caught the sudowoodo and caught a machop as well, and trained it to lv 25 with the rest of my pokes. I beat all the trainers in routes 38 and 39 and the lighthouse as well. Machop also evolved into Machoke, and I traded it for a Machamp, and went back to goldenrod and nicknamed it Mr. Muscle. I beat Morty with poliwhirls surf and Machamps Forsight+Seismic Toss. I continued on and beat the Red Gyarados and all of the trainers, and then demolished the rockets hideout. I went to the sea,beat all the trainers there, and battled chuck, although I forgot how I beat him, heh. I went back to olivine and beat Jasmine by beating the magnemites with machamps karate chop and beat her steelix when it used screech then Iron Tail on my hitmontop but it didn't ko it so I countered it back for the OHKO. Went on and beat Pryce with crushers newly learned Body Slam and Hypnosis alon with Spinners HP Fighting. I beat the Radio Tower easily, like always.I continued on and beat all the trainers uptil Claire, and Spinner beat all of her Dragonairs and Heracross beat her Kingdra by leering it twice then 2KOing it with horn attack. I went back to Mt. Mortar and beat the Karate king with machamp and restarted 3 times so I could get a Tyrogue with a higher attack than defense. Then I exp shared it to lv 20 and it evolved into hitmonlee, and I trained it to lv 26 at route 38 so it could learn Hi Jump Kick and the bred it with a Ditto and got a baby tyrogue with Hi Jump Kick, trained it to lv 20 and it evolved into Hitmonchan. Trained both lee and chan to lv 34 at route 38 and then went to Mt. Mortar and got all the items, training against the wild pokemon and 2 trainers I found. I went to the route 45(?) and trained both to lv 40 along with the rest of my team, continued on to victory road,and beat one trainer, and saved.

I'll be starting a Grass Challenge in Crystal.

------------------------------------

Named my character Erika. i'm not a girl in real life, this is just so that getting a female starter is easy. I chose Chikorita, and named her Chik. I went to Mr. Pokemon's house, and Chik was at Level 8. I beat my rival with ease, and continued to Viloet City, where I caught a Bellsprout. I trained a lot, and Chik evolved. I am preparing for my battle against Falkner. Now I have:

Chik, Bayleef, Female, Level 16
Razor Leaf
Tackle
Reflect
Poison Powder

Venus, Bellsprout, Female, Level 14
Sleep Powder
Wrap
Growth
Vine Whip

I had beated the whole crystal game with all grass types too. I know it's hard for others but I made it.

11th January 2005, 4:50 PM
Update -
Caught a Weedle in the morning and then trained up my team till Weedle evolved into Beedrill at level 10, till Zubat learned Bite at level 12, and til Gastly reached level 11. Challenged Falkner and basically cleared through the gym using only Zubat with Bite. Headed through route 32, adding Ekans to my team along the way. Made it through Union Cave easily, almost as easily as I cleared out Team Rocket from Slowpoke Well. Afterwards, did some training in the Well getting my team stronger, Togepi hatching and being deposited in the box, till finally heading over to Azalea with my team at L13 Ekans, L14 Gastly, L14 Beedrill, and L16 Zubat.

Bugsy's Metapod and Kakuna were no challenge for my Ekans and Beedrill respectively. Scyther however Fury Cutter'ed through Beedrill then Gastly. Zubat was able to emerge victorious when Fury Cutter missed and I managed to confuse Scyther. Then I just bit my way to victory. Ran into rival leaving Azalea and beat him, even though his Zubat took out my Gastly. But it evened out when my L14 Ekans beat his L17 Bayleef with just Poison Sting. Got Cut and Charcoal and caught a Paras as a HM slave for Cut.

Waited till night so I could add Oddish to my team. Trained her up to L15 in the Slowpoke Well against Magikarp till she got strong enough to take on the Goldeen (because of Peck). Next, passed through Ilex Forest, grabbed Headbutt, and cleared through the trainers on route 34. Once in Goldenrod City, I picked up my free bike and the radio card before making my way to the name rater to give nicknames to my team. When I got that taken care of, went through the Underground Path and cleared it out. Also recored Bill's phone number. Next step is onto Whitney and the Normal-type gym.

Current team:
Buzz L16 (M) ;015;
-Poison Sting, Fury Attack, Focus Energy, Harden

Odelia L16 (F) ;043; @ Miracle Seed
-Absorb, Sweet Scent, Poison Powder, Stun Spore

Vipra L16 (F) ;023;
-Poison Sting, Bite, Leer, Wrap

Spectra L16 (F) ;092;
-Hypnosis, Lick, Curse, Mean Look

Echo L17 (M) ;041;
-Supersonic, Bite, Leech Life


Your team is a merda ;158;

i went to get the egg and it was a magby. ill train only magby and put an everstone on it

13th April 2005, 9:48 AM
I'm actually trying ghost for the hell of it seeing as gastly is available before Falkner.

Going to be hard to actually topple falkner though thx to his pokemon being half normal making them immune to ghost attacks.

EDIT ~
I just beat falkner, all that's required is 3x lvl 16 gastly and a little bit of luck with hypnosis and curse to stomp both his half normal type birds. Easy enough to train up in the Ruins of Alph against unowns (lvl 9 or so and they're 2hko's).

Altmer
13th April 2005, 4:51 PM
I think it says somewhere: Ghost and Dragon teams not allowed due to lack of Pokemon.


Ghost and Dragon teams are not accepted due to lack of pokemon

See?

And I also think there was a rule on duplication :/

.TraX.
14th April 2005, 12:26 AM
No rules on Species Clause which would be the only thing saying I can't use multiple gastly's.

Besides why can't I make life hard for myself? :)

Altmer
14th April 2005, 8:04 AM
You can, I didn't say that. OK, there was no species clause in here (There should be.) BUT ghost type mono ain't allowed according to the rules. But it's still quite cool to do :)

.TraX.
14th April 2005, 8:29 AM
OK, there was no species clause in here (There should be.)

Can you imagine how many potion's I'd need to kill falkner? at last count 4!

Besides: why is dark allowed when you can't get them until after WHITNEY and there are a distinct lack of dark's (Umby, Murkrow, Sneasal?) before KANTO!!

Altmer
14th April 2005, 3:21 PM
Because there's more than two dark types. :/

Ghost only has Gastly and missy. I didn't make up the rules, Ask Razor Leaf.

19th April 2005, 8:04 PM
But maybe he/she could catch 5 Gastly and have 5 Gengar to train and help the team. One for:

fire (Firepunch)
ice (Icepunch)
electric (thunderpunch)
psychic (pyschic_
dark (shadow ball)

26th April 2005, 7:26 PM
Ok, I'm doing a PSYCHIC Challeng because I love Espeon and the other Psychic Pokemon available.

DAY 1
Called myself Chris and chose Chikorita for breeding purposes. I battled my way through leveling up Chikorita to learn the moves I want to breed on when I get Exeggcute. I collected all the berries that were there and some items along the way to Mr. Pokemon's house.

When I returned I battled my Rival who had a wimpy Totodile against my strong lv. 12 grass pocket monster. I ended up calling my rival also Chris (So it's like, Chris defeated Chris!) And recieved some PokeBalls of Prof. Birch's assistant.

I wanted to be quick so I skipped most trainers and caught a Bellsprout and Pidgey along the way to use as HM Users. I took on Falkner with a level 15 Chikorita and won handily. Pidgeotto's gust attack gave me no problems.

So I quickly headed to Azaela where I met and found my new companion, Slowpoke. I caught a Female one, so I can breed some moves.

1st May 2005, 6:25 PM
I'm going to do a Grass challenge! :)

The First Day:

Started a new game after finding my Silver Version. Set the Time and Date, then received my Pokegear from Mom. After starting out, I chose Chikorita (Which I nickname Chik-San), I then went through Route 29, battling some wild Pokemon (but running away mostly), after arriving to Cherywood City, I took the Tour with the Old Man, getting the Map Card for my Pokegear. Went along Route 30 and met Prof. Oak and Mr. Pokemon, receiving the Mystery Egg and the Pokedex. After leaving received a Call from Elm, stating that something terrible happened, met "???" and battled him (against Cyndaquil), gaining a level. After returning to New Bark, I named the Rival "Gold", and showed Elm the egg. Received my Pokeballs and went on towards Violet City. Along Route 30 I battled three trainers, and some wild Pokemon. Before entering Violet City, I searched for a Bellsprout to add to my team. I found one at Level 3, and caught it. (Which I proceeded to nickname "Sprout"), after that healed in the Violet Pokemon Center, and entered Sprout Tower, defeating the first Sage. Went back to the Pokemon Center and saved. Turned Game off for a break.

Turned Game back on.
Returned to Sprout Tower and challenged the other Sages. Saw Gold beat Sage Li, and left. Challenged Sage Li and lost, re-entered Tower and challenged Li again, beating him this time. Sprout leveled up quite a bit during this training, going up a good eight levels. After receiving Flash, I taught it to Sprout. Used Escape Rope to leave the Tower in a hurry, and healed my Pokemon. After Healing, I headed to the Violet Gym, saving right then. Battled Bird Keeper Abe.....and got creamed. Decided to visit the Ruins of Alph, so I can train against Unown..... but most of them fled, so I decided to keep trying against the Gym. Battled Abe again... but stopped by the Mart and bought 3 potions, for good measure. Beat the other Bird Keeper, followed by defeating Falkner. Got the TM and Zephyr Badge, when I exited the Gym, I received a call from Prof. Elm, saying that his Assistant needed to talk to me at the Violet City Pokemon Center. After that I saved.

Level: 12
Item: None
Moves: Tackle, Growl, Razor Leaf, and Reflect

I got pretty bored with this so I went through it pretty quickly and finished it. I forgot to mention that the Slowpoke was holding a King's Rock so I evolved it right away. I might do a Grass/ Bug/ Poison team next.

Final Team:
Espeon, Girafarig, Starmie, Jynx, Xatu and Slowking/Exeggutor(switched)

21st May 2005, 5:08 AM
I decided to do... the Ice Challenge! (while breaking the trading rules...)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Day 1 or Week 1 (depends on how you look on it)

Restarted Silver, named myself Silver, got Totodile (Female for breeding), on the way to Mr.Pokemon's house trained her to kick rivial's Chickorita's ***, went back to Cherrygrove to battle him, and won. Went back to Elm's lab and told the police that my rivial's name is Silver (Silver battle Silver! Silver killed Silver!) and got the Pokeballs from his aid.

It's night and I forgot that you can't find a Pidgey at that time. I was helplessly looking for one while training Totodile, until...

Wild Ratata apeared!
Silver: "Just another Ratata..."
The shiny stars apeared
Silver: "WHAT THE HECK?! THAT'S A SHINY RATATA?!" (keap in mind that I was playing on my GBA, if that helps in any way)

Caught her so I can trade to my Gold version.

Meanwhile on my Gold version...

GOLD!!! (yes, that is my name...) finally got an egg from his Jnyx and Ditto. After putting Jnyx and Ditto in the PC, he hopped on the Magnet Train, flew to Pallet Town, and got on the bicycle. He decide to bike across Kanto to hatch the egg faster, and from Pallet Town, biked in the same path that you do in G/R/B/Y/LG/FR (with going up and down the Bicycle Hill a few times). Stopped in Saffron, got on the Magnet Train, and did the same thing in Johto (starting in New Bark Town), until Smoochum hatched at the Ruins of Alph...

Back to Silver...

Got a call from GOLD!!! that the egg has hatch and to get to the nearest Pokemon Center ASAP. I ran to the nearest Center and went up stairs. Waited for GOLD!!! a bit until I got a call to go in the trading room. Traded Totodile (lv. 8) for Smoochum (lv. 5) and left.

Smoochum's (lv. 5) moves:
Pound
Lick

Trained her until lv. 7 and battle the all the trainers on Route 30 and 31 (and caught a Pidgey). Rested at the Center and cleaned out the Sages in the Sprout Tower. Had some trouble with Smoochum when she got to lv. 11, but still managed to cream Falkner and his trainers with her at lv. 15 (Powder Snow owns... for now). Skiped a lot of the trainers on Route 32 and Union Cave, so I could do the Happiness trick when I got to Goldenrod (since Jnyxs learn Ice Puch at lv. 25 and Smoochum never). Kurt broke his back (again...), creamed Team Rocket at the Slowpoke Well, rested, and battle the GYM.

Had a little trouble with the trainers, but I got to Bugsy (at lv. 20), who took two two tries to cream, because Sycther keap on using Furry Cuter. Overview of Battle:

VS Busy

Metapod: Used Power Snow, which froze him, and Smoochum disobayed me by using Power Snow instead of Pound for the final hit.

Kakuna: Used Power Snow, but Smoochum disobayed me again and used Pound, KO'ed him with Power Snow.

Sycther: Used Power Snow, which hit and... FROZE HIM! Used it again and creamed Bugsy.

Went out, rested, and creamed Sliver since Smoochum gained a level and learned Confussion. Mom called saying that she bought something, went back to the Center took out the Super Potion, and rested. Went into Ilex Forrest and chased the Farfetche'd around and got Cut.

Now at Kurt's house trying to hatch the egg...

P.S. I forgot that there was a TM for Ice Puch... na baka ya...

5th July 2005, 10:06 PM
I decided to start the Grass challenge.

I went out of my room, and went to Professor Elm's lab. I picked up the Grass Pokémon, Chikorita. I trained it up in the grass on Route 29 to learn Razor Leaf. After that, I stopped in Cherrygrove City to heal.

Next I went to Route 30, battling Pokémon so Chikorita raised levels. I saw Mr. Pokémon, and recieved the Mystery Egg, along with a Pokédex from Professor Oak.

I made my way back to New Bark Town, and on the way got challenged by an unknown person with a Cyndaquil. I won easily, and got to the lab.

Inside, I gave the name Kanon to the Police Officer. I then gave Elm the Mystery Egg. He suggested that I take the Pokémon League challenge.

I fought my way through to Route 31, where I caught a Bellsprout. I continued to train Chikorita for a little bit, before it was Level 16 and evolved into Bayleef.

I then trained Bellsprout to 15 by using Dark Cave and Sprout Tower. When I was ready, I entered Falkner's Gym, and began the battle for the First Badge.

Bayleef vs. Pidgey. I started off with a Reflect, and then a Poisonpowder. Pidgey's Tackles were harmless. Tackle + Poison = 1HKO.

Bayleef vs. Pidgeotto. Pidgeotto immediately started Gusting. It was a good thing Reflect was up, or I might have lost. I used Poisonpowder again, and then started to Tackle Pidgeotto. Eventually it fainted, and I recieved my Feather Badge.

I then went to the Pokémon Center, and picked up the egg. I then put it in the PC.

~Team~
;153; Bayleef L17
-Tackle
-Poisonpowder
-Razor Leaf
-Reflect

-Vine Whip

Well, I decided to do a Water monotype challenge for some experience with that type. Here's my story so far:

Started a new game after going through the cruddy intro, named myself Kira. I'm doing a water type challenge, so I chose Totodile. I traveled to Cherrygrove City, talking to the old man at the enterance to obtain a Map Card. I traveled to Mr. Pokemon's house, got the Pokedex from Professor Oak, along with a Mystery Egg. I went all the way back to the enterance to Cherrygrove City, but my rival, named Zach, attacked. I defeated him easily, and proceeded back to New Bark. At the lab, I gave Professor Elm the egg and traveled back to Cherrygrove, getting 5 Pokeballs from an assistant. I traveled to Route 30, and after a short struggle, I captured a Poliwag.

My Team:
Totodile level 6
Scratch
Leer

Poliwag level 4
Bubble Gun

I am doing Fighting, my favorite type, in Crystal. I am also doing something I've never done in a self-monotype challenge, and actually plan to train six Pokemon of my chosen type. While Crystal version is missing a Fighter, that's all right because the three Hitmon more than make up for it.

Although it was only about noon in the real world, I set the time so it was close to midnight. That way I could catch my first pre-fighter, Poliwag, who is nocturnal. I chose Chikorita so my rival's fire type would be easy to defeat. I named myself Katelyn, listened to the speeches on what a good trainer I am, got pushed around by my rival... FINALLY caught a female Poliwag named Paulene (I think it's actually spelled Pauline. Oh well). Being so fast and starting off with Bubble, she was a surprisingly strong fighter. Battling the wild Geodude's helped boost her level early.

When Paulene's levels were in the early teens, I challenged the Gym Leader, Falkner, and won easily. I held off challenging the sprout tower 'til my Poliwag learned Doubleslap. Even so, by the time she was at that level, a single Water Gun could finish off the level 3 Bellsprouts. That's good because Double Slap has such low PP.

Battling the rival, TR, and Bugsy was uneventful. I withdrew Chikorita out of the box so he could be my Cut slave. I was very impatient because I wanted to get the rest of my team mates. I skipped the trainers on the route between Ilex and Goldenrod so I could use them to level up my future team mates. I caught a Drowzee for trading, but then found out the person who owns Machop wanted an Abra (I guess they changed it because Drowzee is nocturnal now). It was a good thing Paulene had Hypnosis. It didn't take long to catch an Abra (I also caught a Ditto for future breeding with my Hitmon I plan to get). So I rushed to the Goldenrod mall thingy and traded the Abra for this kid's female Machop, Muscle (ugh). Eager to add a powerful insect to my team, I left Goldenrod without getting the bike first (doh!), taught Muscle Head Butt, and headed down to Route 33 to head butt trees. So far I haven't spotted any wild Heracross, but killing the sleeping Aipom, Spearow, and Ekans really helped out with Muscle's training.

TEAM:

Poliwag, female
level 24 (holding off evolution 'til level 31)
-Bubble
-Water Gun
-Hypnosis
-Double Slap

Machop, female
level 20

I chaned my mind. I'm doing Grass. Despite my type disadvantages, the first two gym leaders were not hard at all.

-started with a male Chikorita.
-added a male Hoppip, piggybacked him until he learned Tackle, then they both destroyed the first trainers, Sprout Tower, and Faulkner.
-in Azalea, caught a female Paras, trained her for several levels before she became a regular on the team. All of my Pokemon took on TR, rival, and Bugsy. Hoppip's Leech Seed is awesome.
-Went to the Bug Catching contest, Pinsir won me a Sun Stone.
-Currently incubating a Sunkern egg and an Oddish egg (it shall be born with Razor Leaf from Bayleef father).
-Also hunting for Exeggcute.

DOUBLE POST. Come on people, GSC rocks!

Ok, I beat Whitney. Parasect died, but she paralyzed Miltank, and Hoppip finished the bloated cow off. Then I got a dinky squirtbottle, destroyed Sudowoodo, and continued mon my merry way. To waste time before fighting the gym leader, I decided to train Hoppip to level 30 and finally evolve him. Gina called twice, but she was just yacking about her Pokemon and stuff. FINALLY, after I got Hoppip to evolve twice, she called and said she had a special item! Yay! I worked Eggy to level 19, got the stone, evolved him, and then returned to Mahogany. I then worked the tree to level 25 so he matched my other lower level grass types. I then decided to just go ahead and evolve Bayleef too, so I did.

The kimono girls gave me little trouble, even Flareon was a piece of cake. Feeling confident, I went to fight the rival in the Burned Tower. Thank goodness for Eggy's confusion attack! It really helps to have a Psychic type on the team. I just wish Jumpluff could fly... oh yes, Eggy also scrambled Morty's ghost types. Get it? Scrambled? Ah ha ha ha... hey, how come Exeggutor can't learn softboiled?

Before continuing my journey, I remembered that today was Sunday, so I made a short trip to Goldenrod, got Return, and continued on my journey to Olivine. The order I train my Pokemon is first Gloom because it's unevolved, then Sunflora because it has sucky moves, then Parasect, blah blah. Since Eggy's the strongest, he gets trained last. Oh yeah, the very first Pokemon I encountered was Entei. Go figure.

The lighthouse was straightforward. I am glad Parasect has Dig. After learning of Jasmine's ailing Ampharos, I caught a Krabby, taught it Surf and Strength, and went to Cianwood. Gloom PWNED Eusine with Sleep Powder and Acid (except Parasect stepped in once to use Dig on Haunter). I then marched into the gym. Sunflora got almost killed by the two Hitmon in the beginning, but my delicate wallflower pulled through. Eggy PWNED Chuck's two Pokemon. And that's where I left off.

I don't know who should learn Return (I am leaning towards Sunflora or Gloom) and who should learn Strength (Meganium or Eggy)

I am now training in Victory road. I plan to have my team at level 50 before I even attempt the Elite 4. Oh man, this is going to be hell...

Pryce was tough, even though all of his Pokemon were weak to Grass. Team Rocket was tough because most of their Pokemon were strong to grass. But leveling my team equally really pays off. Finally, Clair was a turd, but Jumpluff saved the day with the awesome Sleep Powder/Leech Seed combo. Man, Leech Seed has to be one of the best moves ever.

A big I WANNA KICK MYSELF FOR THIS moment: I got the EQ tm in Victory road. After that, I thought to myself "I'll just walk kinda close to the exit and save", but the rival comes to you way before you get too close to the exit. And I hadn't taught Meganium Earthquake yet. Whoops. Even though Meganium used Light Screen when fighting Typhlosion, the stupid hamster's Flame Wheel was a critical hit, so it ignored the Light Screen, then it used Quick Attack and finished Meganium off. Then Sunflora killed Typhlosion with Return, Exeggutor killed Haunter, and my crafty Parasect killed off Kadabra, Magneton, and Sneasel.

I beat the Elite 4 and Kanto, and I'm in the very very boring part of the game. I hate leveling up Pokemon at the Elite 4, but I need to in order to fight Red. Sigh...

Team is the same except Gloom evolved, Meganium knows Earthquake and Safeguard instead of Light Screen and Headbutt, and they are all at level 54.

I'm starting a Poison-type challenge in Gold...

Picked Chikorita as my starter for no reason in particular and head off on my way, fighting only when I need to. Get to Mr Pokemon's house, get the egg and pokedex and I'm back home again. Meet the rival on the way and trash him with ease. Tie up the loose ends, and that's the boring stuff done.

So now I've got my pokeballs, it's time to catch the first few members of my team. Onto Route 30 for my "starter", a Spinarak, and I start training him immediately. I make my way through the puny initial trainers (which are surprisingly annoying when the only attack you have is Poison Sting). Though I don't have Flash yet, I wander around in the Dark Cave for a bit until I find and catch a Zubat. Then, back on Route 31, I add a Bellsprout to my team. Now we're well on the way.

After refreshing at the Pokemon Centre and gaining a few levels, I head for Sprout Tower and with Spinarak as my main fighter, I use bait and switch to bring my levels roughly even. Here to, I encounter a Gastly and catch him with minimal trouble. With four pokemon I soundly defeat the Sage and take HM Flash.

Confident, there's nothing left to do but challenge Falkner, who takes some putting down. His Pidgey is easy but Pidgeotto is a different story. I get lucky with Zubat's Supersonic and Spinarak's Poison Sting striking a critical hit, and he eventually goes down.

So I say goodbye to Violet City and begin my trek down Route 32. I take a Miracle Seed as a souvenir and attach it to Bellsprout. I make my way slowly but surely down this route, training my pokemon and healing at the convinient Pokemon Centre. I decide to tackle Union Cave another day.

I started one of these myself like three days ago, but couldn't report here for various reasons. ;(
I'm doing Grass for a change, and DAMN it's so annoying not having strong attack moves and relying on spores. Oh well.
Briefly, my current team is that:

Lv 20 Exeggcute (M) - Confusion, Hypnosis, Reflect, Leech Seed.
Lv 21 Gloom (F) - Absorb, Razor Leaf, Stun Spore, Sleep Powder.
Lv 21 Bayleef (M) - Headbutt, Razor Leaf, Reflect, Poisonpowder.
Lv 21 Skiploom (M) - Headbutt, Sleep Powder, Stun Spore, Synthesis.
Lv 25 Parasect (M) - Scratch, Spore, Dig, Leech Life.
Lv 26 Weepinbell (M) - Acid, Stun Spore, Sleep Powder, Vine Whip.

This will most likely be my final team (pok&#233;mon-wise.) Not that there're any more grass-types left (my only other option would be Sunflora, which i'm not really fond of.)

Falkner was a little tough to beat, had to evolve bayleef before fighting him and razor leaf'd to death.
But bugsy was a PAIN. That fury cutting scyther of him OHKO'ed my entire team after two or three of 'em. When i went there for the second time however, Skiploom's Sleep Power + Tackle made for a painless battle.
As for Whitney, it's even funny how Miltank was beaten by a Leech Seed/Sleep Powder/Barrage Exeggcute and a lot of luck (she really took loong times to wake up while her hp was being drained.)
Morty wasn't that difficult, considering my parasect had Dig already. I just had to buy some awakenings and he was done (someone cares to explain just why grass types have so little TM compatibility? INo shadow ball, no elem. punches, no off-type moves apart from stuff like mud-slap (in general), nothing. At least Meganium will be able to learn earthquake and Exeggutor, psychic.).
I'm currently heading for Cianwood and will leave Weepinbell in the Box while a Wooper surfs me. (After playing R/S i realized Grass types have so little variety it's not funny. You get some pure-types, some grass/poisons, a flyer, a psychic, a bug and that's pretty much it (Water types have a lot more dual-type variety, so they can prevent a lot of weaknesses.) In R/S there's a dual Rock, a dual Water, a dual Fighter, makes for weaknesses much better.)
I'm trading for RBY leaf stones so i'll be able to evolve both exeggcute and weepinbell. Gloom will use a Sun, though, even if if REALLY prefer Vileplume. I just don't want to beat the elite 4 with unevolved pok&#233;mon.

I'll update this when i get some time and defeat more gym leaders.

I'm currently saved outside Falkner, Chikorita and Bellsprout both level 13. He's harder then I thought he would be, going to try to get some new attacks before tryin him again


Edit: I finally beat him. I used a few growths while fighting pidgey, and killed it off. Then I managed to survive an attack from pidgeotto and used a vine whip taking away like half of his hp, a bit less. Then Chikorita came in when he koed me (didn't feel like wasting a potion since he would kill me by the time i used it and tried to attack)
I used a reflect (was faster) and then tackled him to death, gaining $900, The Zephyr Badge, TM 31, and a level up for Chikorita!
Bell is almost leveled up too. Waiting a few hours til morning (Messed up my time so I could start and catch Bell, and I don't feel like time resetting yet) so I can catch Hoppip

Edit again *God, this place is dead*
Caught Hoppip, got through the cave, went straight to the forest to catch a Paras. Paras is currently level 9, Hoppip Chikorita and Bellsprout all 15. Planing to evolve Chikorita

Started the monotype challenge. I named myself Ishi, started off with Chikorita (and named him Cut Slave), and named my rival Sad. I caught Geodude (and named her Glub, with a long u) to use only until I caught an Onix, put CS in the PC, and beat Faulkner with her. I caught an Onix (and named him Oracle), and now we're training. I'm going to catch a Spearow for a Fly slave (guess what I'm going to name it!) and use it and CS only until I can get a Skarmory. We haven't gotten past Union Cave yet.

My book fnocking lied to me! Onix can't learn Rollout! http://pokemopolis.net/forum/images/smiles/weep.gif
That means Glub's back in my team, and Oracle's out.

Yesterday, we got really far. Oracle and I beat Bugsy and Sad. By then, I really wanted my Corsola! So then I beat Whitney, caught Sudowoodo (named him Suit), and ran (well, biked) to Olivine for the Good Rod. I caught one and named her Cindery. I remembered that I wanted a baby Corsola, so in Silver I taught the mother Corsola Psychic and mated her with Amnesia A. I prehatched the egg (it contained a female with Psychic, Surf, Amnesia, and Tackle! Yes!), then reset to when the egg hadn't hatched. I traded the egg for Cindery, hatched it, and named her... Cindery. While we were training, I noticed something that horrified me: Amnesia raises Special Defense, not Special Attack! ;_; So I decided to keep either Recover or Rain Dance instead. Then I got TM04 and copied it and Oracle purely to give my Silver version TM04 (I was NOT going to use two of either of them on my Gold). That's how I got the original Cindery back. Then sorrow:

Booted up a TM. It contained ROLLOUT. Teach ROLLOUT to a POK&#233;MON?

NO

Aw, schnat. So Glub got it instead. (I didn't want to wait till L31.) I raised her from L13 (where I left her after getting Oracle) to L24 to match Suit and Cindery. Now I'm deciding what her last move should be (she's keeping the planned Rock Throw, Rollout, and Defense Curl, but she can't get Screech like Onix can), perhaps Magnitude, or maybe Double Team.

This morning, I was looking out for any other "surprises" on the offline Pok&#233;dex I got from Pok&#233;mon UK (apparently now known as PKMN.net). I found one, but this time, it was a good one. I was making sure the other Pokemon I planned out could indeed learn what I planned, including Skarmory learning both Cut and Fly. I then remembered that Farfetch'd can learn those two, too. So I went and checked where I could find it: Rts. 38 and 39. Where the hell are they? Probably in Kanto somewhere.... Nope! They're on the way to Olivine! YES! So I tried three or four times to catch one. I named her Cut-Fly and taught her Cut. Now my team's name is unpronounceable (SCRGPF?). Cut Slave, Fly Slave (who's useless now), Oracle, original Cindery, and Togepi's egg are in the PC; Glub, Suit, Cindery, and Cut-Fly are with me. We're in Ecruteak. I want to beat Morty so I can use Surf and get my Psyduck. Why couldn't they have made Rhyhorn accessible earlier? 15:10 logged.

We trained to L30 before taking on the Ecruteak gym. It was hell because he kept using Curse and Hypnosis on us, but after about three tries (T_T), we won. Then I went and got a Psyduck and named him WhWfFlshRS (wuh-flash-ers) because he's going to be my Whirlpool/Waterfall/Flash/Rock Smash slave. 19:58

Am I the only one still doing this now? ;_;

I did a lot. A whole lot. I beat the rest of the Johto gym leaders (Janine was easy, Chuck and Pryce were a bit hard, and Clair took, like, 10 tries), beat TR, evolved Glub twice and learned that she could learn Earthquake, raised G/S/C (jajajajaja) to L48-49, and today I got three new friends on Victory Road. I caught Rana the female Rhyhorn, then Raja the male Rhyhorn, then I mated them to produce the beautiful baby Rani (female). I think I might look for another male (Raja had better stats in almost everything than Rana, but was slower [28 versus 32]); I don't quite feel like buying 10 Carbos to get Rani's speed from 8 to 10. I also want to be extremely careful because I can use only one Fury Cutter TM and only one Dig TM.

I raised Glub and Cindery to L49 while looking for other potential mates for Rana. (I've tried catching about six other males [Rada, Raniada, Rania, Rayia, Rax, and Roxy; I think that's all], and none of them were as fit as Raja. Compared to Raja, Rax lacked in Def, SpD [SpA doesn't matter, but it was the same # as SpD], and Speed [26!]. Roxy was quicker [33], but lacked in HP, Def, and SpD. Everybody else just lacked. Rani got a good daddy. I'm going to train her.) I'll get to raising Rani soon.

The stats I wrote down (HP/Atk/Def/SpA/SpD/Spd):

Rana L35
110/66/79/35/35/32

Raja L35
111/73/79/36/36/28

Rax L35

12-20-05

I've been raising Rani a lot, mostly now with Tentacool/cruel near Cianwood and trainers I intentionally left unfought. (I've been training her as if I hadn't fought the gym leaders yet: have her at least 5 levels above the highest of the gym leader's Pok&#233;mon, then we go to the next town.) She has better stats than her dad; at L35, her stats were 116/80/90/47/47/42! I did use six Carbos on her (and gave the rest to the others on my team). At L37, I gave her Dig. When she gets to L45, we'll start training on Victory Road. I'm still debating as to whether I want to give her the EQ TM or not; she'll learn EQ naturally, but she'll learn it at L55, and she grows sooo slowly.... 51:02 logged.

I've also noticed that some of Suit's other stats have changed. How in the hell? Maybe I typoed (typo'd? How do you spell that?) on the previous ones....

I've been training my team to L62. Maybe I'll go one or three more levels before I take on the E5. If Clair showed me anything, it's that even 6 levels won't do, especially against Dragonite, one of which has Blizzard. Now I've got 12 levels on Lance's highest! Alas, gaining ~14000 exp. 612-891 at a time is crap.... (Except Cindery, who hasn't even broken 10000 yet....)
We beat Sad again. Rani learned EQ naturally, and she evolved! I'm still training Glub to L62, and I'm debating as to whether I really want to teach Rani Fury Cutter. And the pronunciation of Suit's name varies from regular ("sute") to "swit," though I've been leaning towards the latter as of recently.

Wow. They were easy. My team members were all L63. I did use a few Lemonades (mostly out of worry and right before Lance) and a Przcureberry or two. After I beat them I poked around Kanto a bit, beating Lt. Surge and visiting five cities. 69:22 logged.

We beat Brock easily enough, but Blue was really hard. Red's going to be even harder because there's no way in hell I'm going to be able to get my Pok&#233;mon to more than 20 levels above his soon/quickly and end up still sane. We'll just have to go on an E5-beating spree until we're... what, L85, maybe? I hope we'll win.... My Pok&#233;mon are all L71, and we were at Mt. Silver training, but now we're at the stairs leading to the E5 for our spree. Muahahaha! 76:44 logged.

3rd June 2006, 11:15 PM
Started a new file on Crystal, playing a mono water team. And wondering how I ever played through the pkmn games on a GBC ...

Got Totodile, a female (YES! no restarts either :D) named her Tsunami, got the item from the aide, went out, ran around leveled Tsunami up to lv 7, ran back to heal, ran back out, through the route to the first city. Got Tsunami to lv 9 before doing so, got her to lv ten after healing, and then healed again and heading to mister pokemon's house.

Wild Pidgeys and Caterpies assaulted us but I had nothing to fear as Tsunami ate them all for breakfast! or a late lunch snack .. whichever. On the verge of leveling up again, we make it to mister pokemon's house, get the egg, talk with professor oak and recive a dex! Upon having a cup of tea and getting a free healing session for Tsunami, I head out, and get a phone call from Prof Elm! Ohnoes something horrible has happened! With haste I rush back to the lab, not caring much about the wild pokemong that challenge Tsunami and I.

On the way out of Cherrygrove City, that mean red haired boy from before comes charging down the way and runs into me, insults me and challenges me to a battle! Well I don't show any mercy for him and Tsunami and I kick him and his Chikorita's sorry butts into next year! I ignore the name he throws out as he runs (or limps off <<>>) into the horizon.

After gloating about my little moment of fury and wrath on the loser, I recall Tsunami and rush back to the lab to discover that red headed fool had stolen that chikorita! I give the name I can just barely remember to the officer before getting down to buisness, and hand over what Elm had sent me out for in the first place. The coot near dropped the egg but it was fine, thankfully. Then he discovered I was given a pokedex and well, instead of facing my mom I've decided to just sneak off to violet city with Tsunami.

-Edit
June 4th-

Travled back through Cherrygrove, through the route after that and to Violet City, battling pokemon and trainers along the way, and getting Tsunami up two levels. Decided to skip the tower and head directly to Falkner's Gym. Fought the first guy, won, went and healed, fought the second trainer, won, skipped healing and took on Falkner, and won. By now Tsunami was level 14 and after being forced to play babysitter to an egg, continued on.

Avoided the trainers, and got into a few scuffles with a couple of bellsprouts but Tsunami took`em down easily with Scratch. Got into a forced battle though, damn wooper trainer.. and came across a guy selling slowpoke tails. Yuck. Got to the pokecenter and healed Tsunami, and chatted with the people while she was healing, and recived an old rod from a nice fisherman. Decided to see what I'd be able to catch so went out imidiately to the pier and on the first go snagged me a Magikarp! I caught what turned out to be a her, and decided to keep her. The now dubbed Angel was in for serious training to get her up to speed with Tsunami, but it's not hard. Seeing as there's plenty of vict-er, fellow trainers about.

After defeating them I head towards Union Cave and venture in. Some awsome battlers transpire, though they're easily defeated in a few rounds due to my Tsunami's water gun attack. Rock/Ground types are no match for a water pokemon. Not even the massive Onyx. I find some items but nothing of importance really.

Finally we make it out of the cave, Angel is doing fine but Tsunami is a bit battered but should be ok till we get to Azela. I climb down the little cliff that's in my way and am about to go to the next town when a trainer appears and challenges me instantly! After the scuffle and nearly losing Tsunami to a near OHKO attack, she gets surrounded by a bright light and evolves! My little Tsunami is now a big bad Croconaw!

While Angel is still a Magikarp.

Oh well.

[man not only does it feel no one else is doing these anymore, but I miss-saw the gender of my Totodile ._. ah well]

After some resting, I decided to meander about Azelea, choosing to ignore the wierd guy by the well. Though if I had known before hand what was going on exactly, I'd have tried to make it to goldenrod... anyways. After some time I hear about this guy that makes custom pokeballs. And I decide to go see this for myself. But no sooner did I get there, did that old man spout something about team rocket and sprint off! I'd never have followed after if the little girl wasn't evidently on her own.

With a sigh/groan I chase after the man, even if I don't know where he went, others were bound to have seen him. And seen him they did, and pointed out for me where he went.

Ariving at the well that felt like I had only passed moments ago, I approach and cautiously take the damp stairs and walk down to the inky depths below. A few slips happened but I managed to catch myself, and after congratulating myself I spot the old man, passed out on the floor... maybe he hadn't had such a lucky trip down?

I hear another groan and look towards the sound, it's that guy in the dark suit! He snaps out something to the out cold old man, and seems to be going for a pokeball! Now I might not be fond of this old gezer, but couldn't exactly let him be hurt worse, could I? Grabbing Tsunami's pokeball, I unleash him. And sic him on the 'rocket' and his Rattata is easily beaten when it tries to bite Angel. And it's teeth break on her scales.

This is pretty much the same for the rest of the rockets, Tsunami just loving it, as it seems he has gone from a friendly and energy riddled Totodile to a battle hungry Croconaw.

But that's fine by me.

Afterwards, I chatted with the old guy for a few moments, well after he was awake. Then up and about, and he offered me free pokeball making! I gladly took that up and chose to come back after I had found better apricorns besides the white one.

Now it was time to face Bugsy.

First up: The gym trainers. They were easy and gave easy experience to Angel and Tsunami. Bugsy himself was easily taken out, I kept confusing him with switching between Angel and Tsunami. So he didn't know which to do, quick attack or risk breaking the Scyther's scythes on Angel's scales.

Pocketing my second badge, I go to leave town. And am ambushed by that redhead from before! Unsuspecting of a challenge so soon after beating Bugsy, we're almost taken down. But Tsunami pulled through, survivng an awsome razor leaf attack to lash out with a powerful BITE! And again! Quickly ending the Bayleef's reign of terror and defeating the redhead. He snarls something about me being weak, and I find it funny. He's the one that keeps losing. And as he runs off, again I remember, hey, isn't he supposed to be caught by the police by now? ... shaking my head and sighing I move on.

Finally reaching Goldenrod after helping a person regain a farfetched, I walk about and fend off (with ease) some trainers that think they can take me on. Nearly into Goldenrod itself, I come across a daycare center. And after some talking with the old couple, I leave Angel with them for a few and take an egg that someone else hadn't wanted. Then continued on.

Not much happened untill the egg Elm's aide had given me hatched, into this egg. That squeaks...

I put it into the PC as soon as possible. It's just creepy...

Some more time walking, and the egg the old couple gave me hatches! Into this cute little Pichu that is colored strangely... She's cute, and I don't have the heart to release her, so into the PC she goes too, maybe I'll train her later, she is cute. But Water pokemon draw my attention more..

I pick Angel up and find she's nearly ready to evolve! Finally! I take her and Tsunami through Goldenrod and to the path that leads to a park evidently, and challenge any and all trainders there. And after some heavy battling, Angel is now a terrorfying Gyarados!

After some more battling I decided to take on Whitney!

And lost badly. I did not expect that a pudgey cow to be faster than my Gyarados. But I try again, and trounce her quickly, even if Angel was knocked out, Tsunami pulled through.

And now I decide to take a slight break and train a bit before taking down the next gym leader.

Breaking out of the story format for now.

Played for several hours straight, beat my rival with ease with Angel and Tsunami. Beat Morty (the second time) ran into Entei twice. Naturally when I'm not going for the legendary runner ;-;

Got to olivine, then cianwood or whatever, beat Eusine, beat Chuck, then went back to Olivine, beat Jasmine. Though this was after I caught Spark and Lunar my Chinchou and Lapras. Trained those two up to a Lanturn and a lv 30 Lapras. Went out, defeated more people. Caught Suicune finally, defeated more people, contemplated for a 6th pokemon, realised I couldn't have Kingdra. Moped. Realised I'd have to waste a water stone on a Staryu and it wouldn't even have psychic. Moped some more.

Caught a Goldeen, made it my HM slave.

Then remembered Lanturn could learn Waterfall.

Went through the route to victory road and currently am training up.

Trained in Victory road, took on the Elite Four, and easily pwned them all. Only had one pokemon faint on me, and that was Victor. After that, I went to Kanto, trained a bit while on the boat. Went to Saffron, skipping Surge atm, easily took down Sabrina and the underlings of hers and went to Celadon, once more easily taking down another Gym Leader. Was about to buy an Eevee for Vaporeon when I remembered, I have no water stone yet :/

Just restarted Gold, and I decided to start a monotype normal team. Leading the team is Star, the shiny rattata I traded over from Crystal that I recently caught, I hope I'm not breaking a rule doing that. She's only been in one battle and I hadn't even leveled her up in Crystal, she'd five now that I've trained her in Gold a bit.

I named myself Danny, my Danny Phantom obsession showing through. I chose cyndaquil and went through the 'go to Mr. Pokemon's, beat rival, give Elm egg.' I named my rival Dash, after the bully who picks on Danny in DP. Then headed straight for the Cherrygrove pokemon center and traded over Star.

After getting her I headed out to get a sentret and pidgy. Caught both, both females and level three. I named my pidgy Windy and my sentret Scout. Since all my pokemon are so low level, I don't think there's much need to talk about their moves.

I have begun a Flying monotype challenge.
===========================
7-4-06
Started a new game, named myself Chef, and chose Totodile as my starter, seeing as my rivals Chikorita would be weak against my Flying attacks. Not only that, Totodile is now acting as a Surf, Whirlpool, and Waterfall slave. I quickly headed out to do the task Prof. Elm wished for me to complete, and headed back, dispatching of my rival; Chipper, handily with my level five Totodile. Next, I headed off to Catch a Hoothoot, which I named Talon, and leveled him up, switching to Totodile until level six, where I trained him on his own. I stored Totodile in the box for later uses, and set out to train Talon. I got him to the level eight before catching a level three Zubat, which I named Dracula, in the cave east of Falkners lair. After some very rigorous training, including a sweep of the Sprout Tower, I headed off to face Falkner, and beat him with relative ease. I took a rest, and here is where I stand now.

After dispatching of Falkner, I headed onwards, and a few minutes before I reached the Union Cave, I recieved a phone call from Prof. Elm, and headed to the Violet City Pokemon Center. There I recieved the egg, and added it to my party. After some short training, I went through Union Cave, fighting all but one of the trainers, and then came out on the other side with strong Pokemon. After a thorough routing of Team Rocket in the Slowpoke Well, I decided to fight the Gym Leader, and my Flying Pokemon pulverized his bugs. I made my way to the forest, and was ambushed by my rival, which turned out to be little problem. I smashed through Gastly and Zubat with my Zubat. Then I took down Bayleef with Hoothoot. Then I picked up an Odiish to use as a Cut Slave, and then spent some time running after a Farfetchd, which eventually gave me Cut. Dashing through the forest, I was astounded to see, that right before the end, my egg hatched. Togepi was instantly put into training, and here is where I stand now.

Today. I decided to start a mono-Flying team, as I would be able to get a Dragon on the team.

Anyway, here I go:

I restarted one of my many Silvers. I named myself Basil, and, set the time, which was 6:02am, and put the day in as Saturday.
I went off to find Prof. Elm, and picked up a Totodile, nicknamed Chomp. I realised that Chomp could be used as an effective Surf/Waterfall/Strength/Cut slave.
I ran to Mr. Pokemon, to pick up his dammed Egg. Then ran back to Newbark, fighting my rival on the way, easily beating him. I got back to the lab, named my rival 'Loser', and gave the Egg back to Elm.

I'll post more, when I raise my Lv. 2 Pidgey up a bit.

RyouChan
31st July 2006, 9:10 PM
Alright. Started my mono-type water team yesterday on Silver. I started with a male Totodile named 'Toto' (you run out of good nicknames after 7 or so years). I didn't restart to get a female, because I like the pokemon in my party to be male since it makes the TMs I use on them recycleable. I played for three hours and had just beaten Bugsy when my sister knocked my SP off the table on accident. It restarted. I was back in Cherrygrove city. Anyways, I took Toto and delivered the egg from Mr. Pokemon, kicked my rival's butt, and continued on my way. I decided to take on Falkner before going to sprout tower. Toto was already level 12 and that was more than enough to shoot Pidgey and Pidgeotto out of the sky. He grew to level 13 and learned Water Gun on the win. We climbed Sprout Tower and took on the horrifying hordes of Bellsprout. The head monk dude was no trouble for us, with Toto growing to level 16 on the win. Finally having finished all business in Violet City, I headed south into route 32 where I caught a level 8 male Wooper, which I name Quaggs. I spent most of my time on my way to Azalea town through the Union cave training him, and he came out at level 15. I used him to defeat the rockets in the Slowpoke Well also, and he came with me to fight Bugsy. By the time Scyther had fallen, both he and Toto were at level 18. Toto evolved into Croconaw, and even though his nickname no longer makes sense, I'm sticking to it.


Status 8/1/06:

;159; Toto/Croconaw Lv. 18 M
Scratch
Leer
Rage
Water Gun

;194; Quaggs/Wooper Lv. 18 M
Water Gun
Tail Whip
Slam

I ran into my rival again on the way into the forest. Everything he had was quickly defeated, except for Bayleef. Its razor leaf was strong enough to faint Quaggs in one hit (4x effective) and Toto in two hits. I lost the first time. The second time, I got lucky. I used Quaggs' one turn to use tail whip, then when he fainted, I had Toto use scratch twice. The first time did about 1/3 to him, the second was a critical hit and knocked him out. Upon entering the forest and returning the Farfetch'd to the charcoal cutter, I realized that I didn't want to waste one of Toto's moves for CUT and I hadn't caught anything else that learned it. I started backtracking. I couldn't find anything at all until I got back to the very first route where I caught a Sentret and taught it cut. I took the opportunity to show Prof. Elm the newly hatched Togepi. I trekked back through the routes, the cave, and into Azalea town.. again. I made it through Ilex forest despite being attacked by bugs the whole time. Apparently they were further angered when I took out a can of 'Off'. Anyway, I made it through the forest and ducked between all the trainers on my way up to Goldenrod. After healing, I went back and defeated them all for training/ego purposes. Toto and Quaggs had both reached level 22 at that point so I figured it was time to take on Whitney. I used Toto to take out all of the gym trainers, and Quaggs was able to defeat Clefairy and Miltank all by himself. Whitney cried, but I did get the badge at least. Afterwards, Quaggs evolved into Quagsire. Finally! I obtained the squirtbottle and used that, in conjunction with a Pokeball to capture Sudowoodo, which was then put into the PC. I then continued into Ecruteak, passing for now on the Bug Catching contest. I defeated the Kimono Girls easily, with Quaggs handling Jolteon while Toto was able to do the rest. I took my prize, Surf, and taught it to both of my pokemon, replacing water gun. After beating Morty, I headed to Olivine where I caught a Staryu and named it Stormie. Now I always call it Starmie on accident, even though I know that time will be very far off... I trained it in the lighthouse with Quaggs and Toto, and then headed over to Cianwood to get the medicine for Amphy.

Beat the game- doing a mono flying in crystal.

Chose Cyndaquil, flew through the route, made it to cherrygrove, finally battled some pokemon, talked with the mr pokemon person, recived the egg, the dex, went back, battled rival, defeated rival, gave the egg to the professor. Recived pokeballs, left town- forgetting to talk to 'mom'. Caught a spearow, caught a hoppip, caught a caterpie. Decided I didn't like Hoppip, placed it with Cyndaquil in storage, went back to the route past cherrygrove, trained Caterpie to a metapod, continued to battle with the bait/switch to get Metapod to evolve to Butterfree, meandered a bit then decided to snag a Zubat from the cave. Went to Violet City.

Battled my way through Sprout Tower to give Zubat EXP, and defeated everyone with ease really with Spearow and Butterfree. Next stop was the gym, and Falkner easily fell to my Butterfree's Confusions.

Now I'm busy training my pokemon up before going to Azeala to fight Bugsy.

Zubat/Female Lv 11

blue-sax-kid: trading isn't allowed :/ not like that. There's not enough types to pull of a dark type challenge or a steel type challenge as there are only Houndoom, Umbreon, Murkrow and Sneasel. Like There is only Magneton, Steelix, Skarmory and well think that's it :/ as I remmeber from the old monotype challenge that Dan had it against the rules for Steel/dark/dragon as there is a serious lack of those types :/

Alright, I need some excitement after defeating Crystal recently...

I started playing Crystal a few days ago again, after not touching it for several years. I beat it in 3 days and decided it was too easy.

So, I'm going to take a Bug-type challenge. I'll see how I go...

Shouldn't be too hard... right?

17th September 2006, 12:07 PM
I did a few lazy versions of this a while ago which break every rule so aren't valid but I'll post it anyways. I decided to assemble some teams that had common factors and beat the Elite four with them. The first team I made were all pokemon that had baby versions the Elite four battered them all coz they were trash, they were (as I remember):

Pikachu lvl: 34
Thunderbolt
Swift
flash
Iron tail

Wigglytuff lvl:40ish
Sing
Quick attack
charm
Headbutt

Magmar: lvl 40ish
Flamethrower
Dynamic Punch
Sunny Day
Smog

Jynx lvl:40ish
Psychic
Ice punch
Kiss thing (I forgot the name)
doubleslap

Electabuzz:lvl 40ish
Thunderpunch
Rock smash
other stuff wich escapes me

Togetic no idea what level
Fly
Metronome
pound
return

I had a dragon squad witch annahilated the Elite four they were Charizard, Aroy (airodactyl), Dragonite, Kingdra, Gyarados and Ho oh
Then I had a legendary squad witch pummeled Lance and his Geek buddies Ho oh, Lugia, Mew, Suicune, Zapdos, Articuno and Entei. Now I'm bored of posting bibi.

8th December 2006, 4:48 AM
This sounds fun, I'm taking this challenge. I choose the fire type (I chose cyndaquil).
I battled my way trough everything up to Goldenrod city so far without using anything else. (Except for the time when a growlithe managed to roar my quilava away for a turn).
Currently this is my team:
Quilava level 23 with ember, leer, smokescreen, and quick attack.
and that's about it. (If the mystery egg hatches into a shiny magby I may use it too, but for now I'm using quily.)

Vipvoo
26th January 2007, 9:03 PM
I haven't played my Crystal cart for over a month now so I figure I'll try this with the ice type (it was either that or psychic, I'd quite like another smoochum)

So I've named myself Indigo, got myself a (female) Totodile so my rival will have a grass type and am currently training for Falkner. Yeah, might take me a while to actually get to the ice types...

One question though. Seeing as it's only about a one in eight or so chance of getting a lucky egg Smoochum, can I trade a jynx over from Blue to breed so I can get one?

Ryze
28th January 2007, 7:57 PM

Vipvoo
29th January 2007, 7:25 PM
Don't worry about the question with the Jynx, I got a Smoochum the second time I hatched the odd egg.

Her egg hatched pretty near to Violet, and I trained there against Gastly 'till lvl 13, then went back and owned every trainer I dodged in Union cave. By last night she was at lvl 25, where she learned sing, and beat Whitney through sing and a critical hit with powder snow on Miltank.

Muuchuu is now on level 32 and I'm still training for Morty. Damm his Gengar...

Team~

Beat Morty with Muchuu on level 34 a couple days ago, and am now working my way through the rockets in Mahogany. I've decided to try and beat Pryce before I do Chuck and Jasmine, because I want to have a Dewgong to help me, certainly with Jasmine. Damm Steelix/Magnemite.

Team:

Beat Pryce too easily with Psychic, although had a bit of a problem with the trainer in his gym with a Jynx...

I taught my Totodile whirlpool and surf and caught Peppermint (Seel) in Whirl Islands. Right now I'm training her against the lighthouse and the trainers on routes 40 and 41, and I hope to get her to about level 38 before I challenge Chuck & Jasmine.

Team~
;238; Muchuu lvl 44
;086; Peppermint lvl 29

These might be the only ones I will use in the game except for maybe a Sneasel and/or Piloswine, which I obviously can't get yet.

Vipvoo
10th February 2007, 1:39 PM
More from me!

I ran around like an idiot training Peppermint against any trainer I might have missed out (not that many) until she evolved at which point I took out Jasmine with surf. Chuck fell to a STABed Psychic from Muchuu. Clair was a bit more difficult, and Hyper Beamed Muchuu down to 1HP before I could take her Kingra out.

This morning I raced around to the Elite Four, and got all the way to Lance's Charizard which was in the red health wise, before the damm thing flamethrowered my Dewgong.....grr.

Usually it takes me about 20 tries to beat the elite four with a full, balanced team, as I'm usually at about lvl 35, so for me to nearly win first time round only using two pokemon is pretty good going. Bearing that in mind, I'll hopefully be in Kanto by tomorrow.

Well, I've been doing a water mono team on Crystal for a bit, so I thought I'd put it up here. The original version with screenies and stuff is here. http://www.freewebs.com/monotypechallenge/crystalwater.htm

I started a Crystal save file on my *coughROMcough* because my real Crystal's battery died a while ago. Anyway, I picked the female charry and named myself Tai and picked Totodile. I named him Josef. He quickly evolved into Croconaw after beating Falkner. I went through with him, training as I went along until I hit the bottom of route 32 and got the Old Rod from the man in the Pokemon center. I used this to catch a Magikarp, which I named Lilith. She took FOREVER to train from 10 to 20, but I was so happy when she finally evolved. I continued on to Azaela and easily chased the Rockets off, beat my Rival, Silver, and faced the gym using the strength of my two very capable team members. I hiked through the woods with Josef and Lilith and attempted to catch a Paras to use just for Cut, but failed at that so poor Josef had to learn it. Oh well, I'll get him to forget it later anyway. After I beat the gym in Goldenrod and (accidentally) killed the Sudowoodo, I kept on up to Ecruteak but I paused for a bit to train in the connecting routes. I found a Psyduck and I wanted one so I caught her and named her Raven. I trained everything a bit more and then continued to the Burnt Tower and went through the whole Eusine scene. After that I beat Morty and afterwards I trained... more. To make a long story short, I marched all the way to Olivine, surfed on Josef to Cianwood, got the medicine for the Ampharos, beat both of those gyms, and then walked up to the Lake of Rage where I (accidentally) killed the Red Gyarados. Oops. =)

Team:
;160; Josef Lv. 36

;055; Raven Lv. 36

3 questions:

1.What do you use between when you start and when you get the first pokemon of the chosen type?

2.Can you have HM slaves in your team if you don't use them for battle?

3.If a pokemon starts out without your type, but will evolve into a form that does, are you allowed to use it so it will evolve?

1. You can use your starter ONLY until you are able to obtain something of your type. But you have to use it minimally and only enough to progress until the FIRST possible obtainable pokemon of your type is reached.

2. Yes.

3. Yes.

Monoteams sound like fun! Its even for my favorite generation! ^.^

I'm obviously doing Electric. I'll get started right now on Crystal.

Plan:
-Choose Totodile for easy sweeping early on.
-Catch Mareep on the route under Violet and ditch Totodile.
-Get the Special Egg and try for Elekid
-Get Eevee from Bill and evolve it into Jolteon.
-Train them all until I get to Olivine and catch a Chinchou.
-etc...

There aren't many new electrics in G/S/C. I can't get Raikou, Zapdos or Pikachu until after the Elite Four.

Started the monotype challenge. I'm doing Water for this one.

I got my Totodile and brought the egg back, as well as beating the rival (named Moto). I also got my pokeballs and my mom saving money.

Edit:Now Totodile is level 13, and I already beat Falconer. Now I'm waiting for night to fall so I can catch a Wooper. I also caught a Bellsprout (for Flash and cut) and a Pidgey (for Fly), and put them both in the computer.

I'll do a MonoType Water Challenge.

EDIT: Changed my mind. I'm going to do a Poison challenge.

EDIT2: Update 27-5-07:
As no one posts here anymore I'll jsut put it in an Edit.
Started. Caught a Zubat, Gastly and Bellsprout. First Gym was near impossible (Zubat only knew leech life, Gastly couldn't damage and Bellsprout only knew Vine Whip and Growth). Put his Pidgey to sleep with Gastly, swithced in Bellsprout and used Growth Twice and narrowly won. Continued, caught a Tentacool (only knew constrict. Yay.) and Trained for next gym. Zubat leanrt Bite and Bellspourt learnt Wrap. Beat Bugsy Narrowly. Trained to Level 25 for Whitney. Caught a Nidoran (M) and evolved it. Bought Return and taught it to Zubat. Pokémon getting Stronger now. The rest is basically a load of training in the water between Olivine and Cianwood xD. I am currently training my Pokémon to Level 42 before taking on Team Rocket at the Radio Tower, and then a further 3 levels Each for Clair. Recently gave my Pokémon Nicknames.

Lv 42 CROBAT/Bat
Wing Attack
Return
Fly (For Convieince)
Confuse Ray
Much Better now. Return kills everything.

Lv. 41 TENTACRUEL/Tenta
Acid
Icy Wind
Barrier
Surf
Getting better now. It learnt Bubblebeam just before I got Surf which I found annoying.

Lv. 41 GENGAR/Ghost
Thunder Punch
Ice Punch
Hypnosis
Fire Punch
Pwns everything. Had to train to 32 before I could evolve as it knew new moves.

Lv. 42 NIDOKING/Nido
Strength (To be replaced with Return)
Iron Tail (To be replaced with EQ)
Double Kick
Shadow Ball
Used to be my strongest Pokémon as it evolved earlier than them. Still pretty Decent.

Lv. 42 VICTRIBELL/Venus
Razor Leaf
Cut (Stupidly deleted Growth for this)
Acid
Sleep Powder
Waited to evolve it until it got to Level 42 so it would learn Razor Leaf

Should be done fairly soon, in a week or so. It was easier than I thought, but the beginning was hard. Harder than if I had done a water monotype anyway.

Update: I finished the Monotype Challenge. I beat Red after about 20 times going through the Pokémon League.

Lv 70 CROBAT/Bat
Wing Attack
Return

Flareon (from the Eevee Bill gives you)
Magmar (Soft Reset the Odd Egg or try Burned Tower)
Vulpix (If you have Silver, route 37)
Ponyta (Route 27, on the way to Pokémon League)
Entei (If you can be bothered to find and catch it)

There are some ideas. Unfortunately, there are very little (they are the only ones before Kanto). I would recommened Magmar (learns Thunderpunch and Psychic) and Flareon (a good Physical Pokemon) definately. Sounds like a challenge.


Good Luck :-)

Finally picked up my Mono-water challenge after a really long while. Anyways...

I kicked rocket butt in the Slowpoke well, and then caught a Slowpoke. Ralph called me up and told me about a swarm of Quillfish, so I picked one up too (after using 12 regular balls and the free lure ball). I beat Bugsy's trainers, but not Bugsy himself(?). I have some training to do before I try her again. I'm also carrying the egg around, but since Togepi is a normal type, I can't use it after it hatches

Hey!
I've been doing mono challenges for ages, and thought id actually post how i was doing for once. im doing bug by the way.

I started up gold, and immediately ditched all minor quests in the first chapter in the story, (I'm at olivine without a townmap.. =<) And caught the-ever-so-legendary caterpie. after an hour of being ratata prey, i thought levels might help my chances. ="D.

After a while, i trecked into violet city with a lvl 15 butterfree. sweet.

THe first gym wasnt all that troubling, besides the fact falkner sleeps with his gameshark.
Anyway.. I went all the way to azalea with only butterfree, feeling i needed support, i ventured into ilex forest early and caught a paras. oh yeah.

I then took on bugsy in a bug to bug war. Leading with paras, i took down metapod and kakuna slowly, healing twice, to give it some exp, and when scyther came out, paras lasted a round atleast. man i was proud. so butterfree came out to face the fury cut addict. Confusion>fury cutter.
My second badge. killer.

On the road to goldenroad, paras showed me just how crap it was. so, i made use of it becoming a cut slave until it decided to love me as a parasect.

I did all the usual duties of goldenrod, and headed to show Britney whats up.
Argh. Rollout>Everything ive got. Tonight, when i pray, i will thank god for sleep powder. Anyway, after a hella lotta effort, miltank succumbed to its master :).

I got lucky, as it was thursday when i hit the park. Sweet. But i had the toughest decision. i caught a scyther AFTER i caught a pinsir. rough. But i went with scyther for false swipe :D.

I caught sudowoodo on my first ball attempt, man, you get lucky with a team of insects. I started doing everything on the fly, so, in short, i beat my rival, surf place and morty in 15 minutes. alright. morty was nothing to butterfree. freaking hell. butterfree rules.

I spent half an hour backtracking between olivine and cinawood getting necessary hms. argh. But Finally, i made it to chuck. Butterfree once again proved ultimate, gusting and confusing to its hearts content.

I now stand on the shores of cinawood. wishing butterfree could learn fly. *sigh*.

My Team: The colony.

Cut acctually suprised me with its power early in the game. 50 base. not bad.

HEY!

Again.
Even though this is kindah dead..
I feel all purposeful when i update.
So.. yeah.

Anyway.
Jasmine kicked the living crap out of me, even with butterfree at lvl 35. I trained all my poke's against tentacruels until i realized i needed more battlers. I decided to grab pinsir, getting lucky that it was saturday. I trained my team up until they were all in there 30's. and FINALLY, jasmine learned whose boss.

On the way to price, i headbutted around for a heracross, and got it on my third headbutt tree. sweet.
After more training, and red gyrados killing, i cleaned rockets out left and right, be it mahogany or goldenrod. Heracross becoming a beast as i did so.
I never realized how high an attack power most bugs have. There awesome.

Anyway, i took on price, with my levels towering over his. I crushed him and continued on, headed for ice path.

Ice path. I HATE ICE PATH!. Freaking ice. after half an hour of button mashing, i got through the first puzzle. Grabbed water fall, and got ready to spend another half hour on the second.
I got through with patience, lemonade, and minimal violence.
I headed straight for clair, forgetting to delete cut of my parasect. woops.
I ended up scraping through clair. her kingdra nearly took down my entire party.

Im now at victory road, preparing for the elite four. its going to suck.

My team: The colony.

;047; Lvl. 38. Item: Quick Claw.
Slash
Leechlife
Spore

Im preparing this guy for an entire moveset overhall. until then.. this still gets me by.

Leer (Its going soon, dont worry)
Horn attack (got me 20 Lvls, why wouldnt i keep it?)
Earthquake ( OH MAMA. i love earthquake. i love it even more on pokemon that i could never see using it.)
This guys attack is HUGE. its the only reason i gave explination for its mediocre move set. i under-estimated it. Its gotten me through battles were he's 10 lvls lower. holly crap.

;123; Lvl. 39 Item: none.

HEY!

The elite four is like purpose built For Total bug domination. Great for me.

Well the first 3 atleast.
Lance thrashed my lvl 40 bugs. Crap.

Gyarados Was easy. Thanks to hidden power and its addiction to flail <.>.

Then came aerodactyl. I seriously wish it stayed fossilized. Its wing attack and rockslide killed of my entire party.
Knowing this, i new i needed more defence and better movesets to conquer it.
Drugs to the rescue !!.

I lvled up until my team was all at lvl 50.
Still. No dice.
Everything happened the same, except quicker, and, i managed to kill aerodactyl with butterfree, sleep powder <3.
Then he sent out his blizzard dragonite.
I barely managed to kill it with heracross.
However.
Charizard. gah. I sucked compared to it.

I trained even more, and with massively high levels, compared to the elite fours, i won.

Ive now recovered the missing power plant piece and just beat misty, having already beaten sabrina and lt. surge.

My team: The Colony.
;214; Lvl: 59 Item: None.
Hidden power [electric]
Reversal
Megahorn
Earthquake
This moveset covered everyone heracross needed to cover. its sweet.

;123; Lvl: 59 Item: Metal Coat. (ill trade him soon)
Double Team
False swipe
Swords Dance
Wing Attack.
I was never a fan of stat boosters til now. Double team abuse with a sword attack and scyther takes down an entire team.

;012; Lvl: 59 Item: Amulet Coin.
Gust
Attract
Sleep Powder
Psychic
My lowest stat bug, yet my highest special attack bug. Its a soldier, and still does wonders for me.

;127; Lvl: 60 Item: None.
Sleep Talk
Swords Dance
Strength/headbutt (I Havent made up my mine. both have great acc. with good base power, but strengths stonger but headbutt flinches, so, temporarily its headbutt.)
Rest
A pretty advanced moveset for my taste atleast. even though some who do the whole sweeper thing wouldnt think so. Headbutt with swords dance and rest keeps me rejuvenated and allows me to deal serious damage to tough pokes. sleep talk is sleep talk. and is as handy as ever.

;047; Lvl: 62 Item: Quick Claw.
Slash
Giga Drain
Spore
Growth
Betcha noone expected this to turn out as my highest level Beaute. After i got rid of cut.. i really wanted giga drain. and it just got ahead in levels, in fact, the rest just caught up, as i beat the elite four with it at lvl 60.

Right Now: Figuring out what the hell im supposed to do after cerulean =<

Later: Training for blue and red and all'a them.

2nd March 2008, 10:34 AM
HEY!
Finally.
I got through kanto, and up to red.
Since im rather proud of my win over him with a bug team, ill write what happened.

I beat him with heracross and scyzor only.

ASH sent out PIKACHU
GO! Heracross!

PIKACHU used THUNDER
it was not very effective..

Heracross used EARTHQUAKE
He OHKO'd the rat!
Yeah. i forgot what happened already.

But i double teamed until i was no longer possible for there to be more scyzors, and then Swords danced up until i started getting a little damage, and then, wing attack took out the rest of his pokemon. including charizard, which makes me thank god for scyzors speed.

Hello!
It's been so long since I've played GSC (though its always been my fave generation), I think I'll start myself off easy: A water monotype challenge. Second easiest to Normal, imho, but whatever.

Picked Totodile as my starter (obviously), nicknamed him Toto. Hardly original. Steamrollered my way to Mr. Pokemon and back again. Some chump with a Chickorita (later to be named Tyler) got in my way for all of 5 seconds.
Fought the two youngsters on route 30, and Falkners two mini-trainers. Took on the birdman himself. Pidgey took all of 3 scratchs, but i needed a potion for Pidgeotto. Me and my lvl 11 Toto came out on top.

Ran down route 32, avoiding all the trainers (except youngster gordan. Forgot he was there.) Got the old rod from the guy in the pokemon centre, went back and caught me a lvl 10 Poliwag (nicknamed Muscles). Went back to Cherrygrove, and after endless magikarps (i considered giving up and starting a magikarp emporium), i finally caught a lvl 10 Krabby (nicknamed Mr.Clamps). As of right now, I'm waiting for night time to catch the elusive Wooper (not a great fan of Quagsire, but i need to counter my weakness to electrics somehow).

Current team:

;060; Muscles the Poliwag (lvl 10)
@ nothing yet
Bubble
Hypnosis

;098; Mr.Clamps the Krabby (lvl 10)
@ nothing yet
Bubble
Leer

;158; Toto the Totodile (lvl 13)

Mystery Egg

EDIT 21/5/08: Ahh, nighttime at last. As i headed over to catch my Wooper, i came across a lvl 4 pidgey. Realising I would require one of these to fly later, i caught it and nicknamed it Flyer, promptly dumping it in my PC. I then proceeded to capture a Wooper lvl 4, nicknamed Cooper. I also decided to capture a magikarp, however i quickly decided that i just could not face the long, arduous task of evolving it, and released it. I trained Cooper on some wild pokemon until he became lvl 11 and learned slam, then Mr.Clamps to lvl 12 to learn vicegrip. These new moves in hand, i proceeded to defeat Wade and make my way to the sprout tower. On my way, i made a detour to see Prof. Elm to show him the newly hatched Togepi, which i then dumped in a box.

As i got higher, it became slightly challenging despite my level advantage, due to their clear type advantage against me. However, i made it to the top and defeated the Elder shortly after Tyler accomplished the same task. What Tyler had been doing while i waited around all day for a Wooper escapes me. My shiny new HM in hand, i proceeded to defeat the trainers on route 32, and in the union cave. Union cave was easy, as i held the clear type advantage against the rock and fire types favoured by those trainers. Upon arriving in Azalea, I proceeded to wander into a house as if it were my own. Within i found a quirky old man, who ranted about team rocket, then stormed off. I figured he could handle them on his own, and went to the gym. Unfortunatly, despite my best attempts to bribe the curiously dressed door guard, he refused to let me in. I went to the Ilex forest instead; now I am waiting for nighttime, so i can catch a Psyduck, and sneak up on and knock out the gyms door guard.

Hello there! Time for my third update. I shortly decided that i didn't feel like catching a Psyduck- however good Golduck is, I've used it too often before :). I decided instead to try out a water type I've never used before- Slowpoke. I went and caught one and trained it to level 14 before beating the slowpoke well. I then went to the gym, and defeated Bugsy easily with Toto (the totodile) and Mr. Clamps (the krabby). I then fought my rival, and this was a different story altogether. Cooper the wooper easily beat zubat, but even with my technique of hypnosis (from Muscles) then switching another pokemon out to damage it, my Toto, Cooper, Mr. Clamps and Foppet (slowpoke) were taken down before Muscles finally finished the job. I used Mr. Clamps as a cut slave (I didn't intend to use him, essentially, from now on in battle.) I fought my way to Whitney, and on my second try, Foppet and Toto (with his newly learned Ice punch) won the day. Toto finally evolved- I was so happy! I caught the Sudowoodo for no good reason, then went to Olivine, leaving all the trainers between Goldenrod and Olivine unfought (apart from one pokefan I couldn't avoid). Now I have the good rod, I'm waiting til night to catch one. I've decided there are too many water pokemon in this game- 24 fully evolved water pokemon, to be exact, enough to fill four squads! And I have to pick 6! I've rejected so many good ones I feel ashamed, such as Slowbro (I intend to go for Slowking), Kingler, Seadra, Suicine, Golduck, Lanturn, Dewgong, Cloyster (and those are just the ones I like I've rejected!). I intend to keep my current team, along with Staryu (catching tonight) and a Lapras (to be caught next Friday, after beating Morty).

I don't mean to double post, but the last one was getting a bit long, what with all the updates. So, once night fell in Olivine, i caught a Staryu in the sea, which i nicknamed Pearl (I'd just been contemplating getting pokemon pearl- I do have diamond, and on reflection I think I'll wait for platinum rather than pearl)

I then proceeded back to Ecruteak, where i destroyed my rival in the Burnt tower. I then let loose the dogs of war! (Ahem. i released the legendary dogs, I mean). Upon returning to the gym, i found that morty was back- i fought my way to him with Coopers dig (he evolved into quagsire, btw), and defeated the head honcho with little trouble. After this, I realised 3 important things, namely;
1. It was friday
2. I could use strength
3. i could use surf once i got it

So I defeated the Kimono girls with relative ease, and got surf. I then headed to the Union cave, and after several soft resets for a female Lapras (I saw it as more of a tank than a sweeper. I had Staryu for that), I finally caught it, after wasting an ultra ball and several great balls. I then went to slowpokes well and got the kings rock- now when he learns psychic at lvl 48, I can evolve Foppet into a Slowking! I returned to Goldenrod, where my next task is too fight all the trainers from here to Olivine. My current squad:

I started monotype bug challenge yesterday.

I chose chikorita (picked randomly), went to mr.pokemon, beat my rival named HOWARD (just came to my mind), went to elms lab. There I got few pokeballs and bought some more in Cherrygrove. Captured Spinarak (female lv 3) and trained. After some training I went to Violet city. There I went to Sprout tower and got HM05 and after that I went to gym and won everybody there with my 15lv, tho I needed few potions against flannery. Visited ruins of alph and continued my trip to azalea through union cave. When I got out of that cave, I almost lost to one Hiker, who had geodude and machop (spinarak had only one night shade left and I had one potion left). From azalea I went to Forest and caught my venonat there (male lv 5). Trained with it and ruined team rockets plan. Healed my pokes and destroyed Bugsy. Then my rival popped out of nowhere and challenged me to battle. I lost to him because of his Quilava, who was able to 2HKO my both pokemon. I wanted to revenge and destroyed him and he mumbled something about weak pokemons and ran away.

Today morning I caught Ledyba(male lv 3) and Pineco(female lv 10). Trained 'em. Went trought the forest. Beated few weak trainers and continued to Goldenrod. There I bought Thunderpunch and taught it to my Ledyba and trained him and he evolved. Beated pokemaniacs/nerds from the Underground and came to my computer to write this.

Current team:

Spinarak lvl 21

________________________________

Evolved my spinarak to Ariados and beated Normal-gym. After beating Whitney I continued my journey to become world's greatest Bug-pokemon trainer and I went to Ecruteak city, beated kimono girls there, explored burned tower, where Howard tried to beat me, but failed, found Suicune who ran away. I trained a bit before going to 4th gym. After training I challenged gym leader and won him pretty easily. Continued to olivine city beating weak trainers who tried to stop me. Arrived the city and climbed to the Lighthouse. Went to Cianwood, where I saw suicune and beated 5th gym. Took medicine from Cianwood and I went trough the sea back to olivine and gave medicine to 6th gym leader, who went to her gym. I realisized that steel gym would be too hard to my current pokemon, so I went to mahogany and ruined team rocket's plan again. Lance said something about my greatness and left somewhere. I won 7th gym. And at the moment I'm training my pokemon so I can beat Steel-gym. (oh, and my venonat and Pineco evolved before I went to Cianwood)

7/6/08 Brief update. I've not been able to play much (exams), But I've only got two in the next two weeks, with the last on the 16th, so i should be able to update more now. Hopefully Jage will as well :)

Anyways, I fought all the trainers between Goldenrod and Olivine and trained to lvl 25. I'm now going to do up the Jasmine returning to her gym, them go and do up beating Price (skipping Jasmine. I really don't like jasmine, especially if she manages to take down quagsire before I can get the magnemites- I'd be screwed), then I'll do Jasmine.

I wanna take the challenge!!! ^__^ I'm going to do water pokemon! And I might be a wee bit picky... but I would like to have that water starter pokemon on my team, I don't like shoving pokemon in PC boxes, lol. Besides that pretty much anything is fine. I would like to have a Pollywrath on my team if ya'll love that Pokemon too.

Hello again! Today I finished training and went to the Lighthouse. I fought my way to the top, and found out about the Ampharos. So i sailed all the way across the ocean (fighting the swimmers for the first time ever) to Cianwood. I headed north, saw Suicune and easily defeated Eusine. Went to the Gym and trashed Chuck (Quagsire lost about half health vs Primeape, Lapras lost none against Poliwrath). I then got fly and the secretpotion, flew back to Olivine and gave the secretption to Jasmine. I decided not to challenge her now, and flew to Ecruteak using my HM slave Pidgey. Went east a little, and fought Tully before getting his number so he'll phone me with a waterstone (which I need for Staryu and Poliwhirl), before saving and turning off.

Yes yes, double posting is wrong, my soul is eternally damned with bad karma now, yada yada.

Now then:

I got to Mahogany, then headed north to the lake of rage. I caught a new flyer on the way (Farfetch'd), and caught the red gyarados. I then when back to Mahogany and kicked team rockets collective backside before trouncing the gym with Lapras. I then went to Olivine and wiped the floor with Jasmine (Quagsire took down both the magnemites, whilst Poliwhirl took Steelix in one STAB super effective surf. With a 6 level defecit). I then had a major change of heart teamwise, and am trying to determine my new team (I'll edit this post when I do). After that, I intend to train to 32, go trash the rockets of Goldenrod, and get to Blackthorn (training to 40 along the way) before defeating Claire (with little difficulty, I hope)

Considering that I can have up to 10 saves on my Crystal (since it's a R*M),I'll do this with Flying types on Crystal. I'm starting right now,and I'll edit this post with my progress in about an hour or so.

EDIT: Well,it's been about an hour,so I'll post my progress.

I started with Chikorita. Since I started at night,HootHoot was the 1st Flying Pokemon I could get. So,I caught a Lv.3 HootHoot and raised it to Lv.11 until it learned Peck. I then deposited Chikorita into the PC (I'll use it later as an HM slave). In Dark Cave,I caught a Lv.2 Zubat without hitting it at all. I raised it to Lv.8 and then took on the Sprout Tower with Zubat & HootHoot. I got Flash (one of the HM moves that I'll use Chikorita for). Then,I took on the Violet Gym,with Zubat at Lv.10 and HootHoot at Lv.12. Falkner's Pidgeotto unexpectedly got a critical hit against my HootHoot,knocking it out. I sent out Zubat,thinking I was gonna lose. But then,I used SuperSonic against Pidgeotto,and luckily it attacked itself,and knocked itself out (I had managed to get it into red HP before it knocked out my HootHoot). Zubat grew to Lv.11. I got the ZephyrBadge,and exited the Gym. Then,Prof. Elm called me about the Togepi Egg,so I took it,and I did not deposit it like most people do. Why? Because Togetic is a Flying type and can actually be quite useful. So yeah. Afterwards,I went down to Route 32,and fought the 1st 3 trainers there. As I'm posting,I'm about to fight all the Fishers. Zubat and HootHoot are both at Lv.13.

So yeah,here's my team:

Well, I trained my team up to level 32 (Tully phoned and I used the water stone to evolve Staryu), then went and did all the relevant rocket beating. It was fairly easy, but the last guy took down two of my pokemon, as I was getting rather cocky by that point. I went back and walked through the Ice cave, got Lapras up to level 36 (Ice beam. YEY!). When i got to Blackthorn, I destroyed the entire gym, with Ice beam. Each of Claires Dragonairs went to one Ice beam, but Kingdra was a long fight of Confuse ray and Body slaming, both of us using a hyper potion. I'm now going to do Mt mortar and Dark cave area, then train to 40 before going to Kanto and getting to, and beating, the Elite four.

I think Kadabra can learn them. Just catch abra south of Goldenrod, train it to 16, and you're in business! Good luck.

You can teach Abra the punchs, not just Kadabra. I went through the whole game with just a Kadabra and my starter which I ditched after I got Abra[fire punch, ice punch, thunder punch]. I killed the whole E4 with it.

update: it was female so i named it Fire Queen(usaly dont give nicknames but it seemed a good time) also y does everyone want females if they cant use dupilcits in the team



update: beat rival and i forgot to heal to so it was that easy im useing a rom and its past midnight here so i gtg my moms yelling at me but progres


(only one intal growlith i think i did research and i know were to get fire stones early on so i can infect use a disent flareon latter but for now ya i talk to much)

People want females because it's easier to breed for their babies if you don't have Ditto, and for egg moves

Have fun getting that Magby. If you were playing G/S you could have gotten a Magmar in Burned Tower instead, but whatever =p

Since in Crystal there's a bit of grass beside the Violet-Sudowoodo intersection, you can catch a Growlithe there, either during the Morning (50%) or Day (30%)

I have passed the entire game with just Meganium(grass type challenge), I am planning to do the same with Typhlosion since he seems to be the weakest of the starters so I'm counting on him to give me the hardest challenge.

However, when I do the challenge in this thread with Totodile, I'm planning to catch a few Pokemon, like Tentacruel and Mantine, also Shellder in Kanto because cursing Cloyster is very good vs. Ash's Snorlax. For Espeon Mantine should be pretty good due to his high Sp.Def. Althought I still don't know what to do vs. Pikachu, I don't want to catch early Wooper because it will give me trouble vs rival early

Personally I don't like either grass or fire types.

Have fun getting that Magby. If you were playing G/S you could have gotten a Magmar in Burned Tower instead, but whatever =p
o i didnt know that o well il get better stats training from magby and i plan to save just before i get the egg so i can repeat intal magby apears

i know i said i did a bit of research in other words to a look at the fire types avaible
also its morning rite now so i have a good chance

That's fun =)

If you want to spend a little more time, the Odd Egg has about a 1/4 or 1/8 or something chance of hatching Shiny, so you can spend a little more time for a Shiny Magby xD

Make sure to save before you GET the egg, not right before hatching.

And at the one who said Typhlosion was the weakest - In my opinion, he has the most varied movepool and decent stats. You can teach him attacks such as Thunderpunch, Rollout, Dynamicpunch and IronTail depending on what you want. Thunderpunch alone is very helpful to cover his Water weakness =)

You only need to use Whirlpool once, to get through Dragon's Den. Technically twice, if you count Whirl Islands, but there's no reason for you to go there

In my opinion, just catch a second HM slave - the Red Gyarados, for Whirlpool/Waterfall. Cut will usually be useful and needed =p

Ok, so I finally got round to beating the Elite four. Victory road was a cakewalk: all ground/rock types in there vs my team of water types. In the league itself:

Will:
Will was quite good. Gyarados used bite on a Xatu, Poliwhirl dealt with Jynx and Lapras beat Exeggutor. Slowbro took down Gyarados and Poliwhirl, the Lapras finished it and the last Xatu.

Koga:
Not as easy as usual (no fire types) but still the easiest. Starmie took on Ariados, Lapras took Crobat and Venemoth and Quagsire surfed Forretress and Equaked Muk.

Bruno:
Tougher than i remember. Poliwhirl took on all 3 Hitmons and won, but Machamp turned the tide of battle by beating Poliwhirl and Lapras (I never knew fighting was super-effective against ice). Quagsire came to the rescue, finishing Machamp and easily beating Onix.

Karen:
Poliwhirl put up a brave fight, but Umbreon just won. Lapras finished the job, and then dealt with Murkrow too. Quagsire was effective against Gengar, and Lapras took down Vileplume. Houndoom managed to finish Gyarados, but I won out with Starmie in the end. Definitely the toughest fight of this monotype so far.

Lance:
Poliwhirl fell to a hyper beam from Gyarados, but Starmie managed to win. Lapras was the star of the show, taking down all three Dragonites in one hit ice beams (and she's only level 42!) Gyarados dealt with Aerodactyl, and then Starmie finished the league for me by owning Charizard convincingly. Johto Champion!

I now intend to do a few little bits, then head over to Kanto. That should (hopefully) go much quicker (though I'm not looking forward to Erika and Surge)

It's been a while since anyone posted here. Bumpage!

I'm going on holiday until the 31st. This has two effects:

1. No posts from me for a week.
2. No distractions from Metroid Prime, FF12, Zelda (WW, TP and OOT), Kotor 2, NWN or Kingdom Hearts, all of which I'm currently playing through. I should finish my water monotype (finally), but bare in mind I'm also taking leaf green and FFTA with me.

Yes yes, triple posting is the work of the devil. I'll live with it.

Almost finished my challenge. I did the Kanto Gym leaders with little trouble. Even Erika and Surge were easy, going down to Lapras and Quagsire respectivly. Facing Red now. So far, I can consistently take down Pikachu (Earthquaking Quagisre), Venusaur (Confuse-ray and Ice-beam from Lapras) and Espeon (Confuse ray and Ice beam Lapras, Surf from Starmie), but after that I'm too battered to deal with Snorlax.

Major EDIT:

Victory! I am the water-type master of Kanto and Johto! I beat Snorlax with the incredibly cheap method of full restoring Quagsire until it ran out of Body Slam PP. Blastoise fell to Thunderbolts from Starmie, and Charizard fell to Surfing from the same. It feels like such an achievement, because the only other time I've ever bothered to beat Red was my first playthrough. I'll probably do a Steel-type challenge at some point in the future, but for the moment I need a break, and maybe a normal playthrough.

Okay, well, I'm starting a new Psychic mono-type on Silver, simpy because I've never really shown any interest in the type tbh, and because, imo, the silver sprites are pawn. :3

I'm not one for long, detailed speeches, or walkthroughs, so yeah, I'll just run through the basics of each gym, or major events as I reach them. I'll probally be recording the battles as well, so I may post videos of my progress, if anyones interested. :x

Update:
Arrived at Violet City not long ago and caught a HP Fighting Unown, which is rather ideal since it is physical as opposed to special, and it covers my dark weakness. I nickname it "Trumpets," because of the sheer awesomeness of they gummy adverts. :L Currently preparing for the first gym, and leveling Trumpets up to around 14/15.

I'll edit this later, with information of the first gym, and perhaps Sprout Tower. ^^;

Edit: Lmao, just realised I spelt Trumpets wrong on my Unown. It's now called Trumrets :L. God, I'm such a retard. x'D


Update 2:
Okay, back to the gym challenge. The first few trainers before the gym leader were easy, only requiring one HP from Trumrets(lolol) to faint. Falkner was significantly harder, but nothing too overpowering. A few HP from Unown did it really. Sprout Tower on the other hand was frickin' ghey. >; Every pokemon used resisted HP Fighting, which resorted in me relying on Struggle for most of the battles. Cost me a bloody fortune in potions damnit. >:L

Half-term starts in 10 days, so I'll start me a steel monotype. I'll trade a metal coat from my current version probably (so I can get both steelix and scizor without stealing from magnemites) but I won't use it until I get the one on the SS. Aqua. Magneton, Scizor, Steelix, Forretress and Skarmory for me, then.

Try Steel if you're up for a challenge. You can get Onix early (to evolve to steelix later), Pineco in the Ilex forest (for Forretress), Scyther just before the third gym (for Scizor obv), and you can get spare metal coats for evolution from Magnemites. I was planning on doing steel myself, but I've never got round to it.

Or, if you fancy something a little easier, go for water, normal, flying or bug.

Looks interesting, I'm going to try for a Ground monotype challenge for crystal :)

edit:

so i started with Chikorita so the rival would have a Cyndaquil (really bad if water/grass was the rival's starter lol) and i caught a Geodude in the route below the mountains (46 if i remember right). I also walked around to find a Phanpy- damn they're so hard to catch and they flee!

Fast forward to Violet City and i traded a Bellsprout for the Onix. Took out the gym with relative ease with Geodude's Rock Throw and Onix Screeching it's way through Falkner's Pidgeotto to make Phanphy's tackle kill it with one hit.

Sprout Tower wasn't as hard as i Imagined as Phanphy's high HP lets it survive a couple of Vine Whips- enough for the Bellsprouts to die from tackle with their weak defense. Just got Flash and am on my way to Azalea Town.

Team-

Rocky (Onix)- Lv 11
-Tackle
-Screech
-Bind

Geodude- Lv 14
-Rock Throw
-Defense Curl
-Tackle

Phanphy- Lv 13
-Tackle
-Growl
-Defense Curl

-keeping Chikorita (later to be Flash and Cut slave for now) and the Togepi egg with party. Not sure who to teach Mud Slap yet.



======================
-FAST FORWARD EDIT-
======================

Just beat Jasmine and am halfway on the Magohany Rocket mission.

-Jasmine was very easy, I didn't use my Ground TM's yet even.
-Chuck's Poliwrath almost owned my team. Used a Suicide Onix to Screech as much as it can before dying (once lol), then Quagsire using Amnesia to soak the Surfs and Tail Whip to bring Defense to lowest then Nidorino landed the finishing blow. Also loving Donphan's Flail against the whole gym.
-Clean sweeped Morty using Quagsire.
-Whitney's Rollout for once didn't bother me because of my ground types :D
-Bugsy was too easy.

Here's my team:

Quagsire lv31 @ Mystic Water
-Surf
-Ice Punch
-Amnesia
-Slam

Donphan lv31 @ ---
-Take Down
-Fury Attack
-Defense Curl
-Flail

Rocky (Steelix) lv31 @ Soft Sand
-Rock Throw
-Screech
-Dig
-Rage

Nidoking lv32 @ King's Rock (:p)
-Horn Attack
-Fire Punch
-Thunderpunch
-Double Kick

Golem lv31 @ MysteryBerry
-Rock Throw
-Defense Curl
-Strength
-Magnitude

and a Farfetch'd for the Cut/Fly/Metal Coat Thief Slave

-Plan later to get a Gligar at Blackthorn or a Swinub at Ice Path. Probably the former then teach it Sludge Bomb for Grass types.
-Will teach Ice Punch to NIdoking later and possibly Mud Slap (Earthquake TM reserved for Donphan who has the highest attack). Not sure if I should use STAB and slightly defensive Mud Slap or Dynamic Punch.
-Not sure if i should give Steelix Iron Tail, was planning to teach it Crunch for Psychics and Dragonbreath for Paralyssis Support along with Rock Throw and Dig.

Gee, this has got me really excited, I want to do 15 different monotype challenges.

Well, ok, I've started out on a normal one. So now, lets get into the details - note, I'll be reporting every time I beat a gym.

I started off a few days ago on this one deciding to pick Chikorita and then after I got onto my first route I caught a HootHoot and after remembering that it will take a *long* time before a Sentret started appearing, I waited until tomorrow (the real tomorrow, not the game). After this I eventually got to Violet City where I started off solving the first puzzle of the Unknowns and then going into Sprout Tower and defeated the Sages until I got enough money to get an escape rope and then got the four items and the pointless message back in the ruins.

After the four items trick I battled the elder, Sage Li. It was an easy battle - Sentret tore apart this guy's pair of Bellsprouts in a few turns flat with a quick attack and made HootHoot an easy picking for mine. After there I challenged the gym leader, Falkner. Sentret tore apart his Pidgey in three turns flat. The HootHoot managed to beat his weakened Pidgeotto with a peck.

I'm currently preparing form my next adventure, so now I'll tell you about my team

;161;level 11 (f) tackle, defense curl, quick attack
I'm planning to get this into a pretty high level - higher than HootHoot to be exact.

;163;level 12 (m) tackle, growl, foresight, peck
This guys going to rocking on as my sleeper in the end and rock on, this battle is going to be good.

Well it's been pretty much ages since I last updated. I sort of stopped playing, so I really have no idea of my actions since my last update. All I know is that I'm at the Lake of Rage, having just defeated the Red Gyarados. I'll keep you updated from now on.

Anyways, team:

sorry I haven't posted in a while - I've been kinda busy ... but I'm back!

I started off going in to Ilex Forest after defeating my rival. AFter a while I eventually got onto Route 32 where I caught two new team members, Snubbull and Jigglypuff. After that I trudged on to battle Gym Leader Whitney - it was incredible.

While battling the other trainers in the gym, I evolved HootHoot in to a Noctowl. It was a tough battle with Whitney - her Miltank almost defeated Noctowl. If it wasn't rollout missing twice I would have been in deep trouble. Then stormed off to continue .... I was wondering where you could get the return TM. Woops, it was all the way back at the department store. But anyway, I nearly lost to the psychic with the Drowzee if it wasn't for Togepi's metronome sending a disable after Drowzee launched an unsuccesful hypnosis I would have been done for.

I then started battling the Kimono Girls. I defeated three of them, but now I am headed back to the department store if it is Sunday.

Now on to the team ratings:

;175;level 17 (m) growl, charm, metronome

;039;level 17 (f) sing, ice punch, thunder punch, fire punch

;209;level 17 (f) quick claw, tackle, scary face, bite, charm

;164;level 20 (m) tackle, hypnosis, foresight, peck

;162;level 20 (f) tackle, defense curl,quick attack, fury swipes
