    Recently started a Platinum runthrough. Did the beginning stuff, being thudded into by Barry. Chose Chimchar as my starter. Saw Cyrus, and heard the Legendary Pokemon. Then saved.

    The team:
    Chimchar (M)
    Quirky|Blaze
    ~Scratch

    I battled Barry as I headed across Canalave's bridge, then took a boat to Iron Island for training and something else. I went through the cave with Riley, who gave me a Riolu egg as a parting gift. Back at Canalave, I hatched the egg, then gave the Riolu a Soothe Bell and a massage. After a while, he was ready to evolve. I then trained him a bit, and headed for the Gym. Byron was very easy, and after that, I went to Canalave Library to speak with Rowan.

    After the earthquake had been triggered, I went to Lake Valor to fight Team Galactic. I soon made them clear the area, then headed for Lake Verity and later Lake Acuity. The road to Snowpoint was slightly tough, but I got there in the end. Ready to take on Candice, I entered her Gym. The puzzle, as always, was very fun (I love ice-based puzzles in Pokémon games), and the battle was simple.

    With my seventh badge in tow, I visited Team Galactic in Veilstone City. In the end, I managed to free the Lake Guardians and defeat Cyrus and Saturn. I began to train my Pokémon before heading into Mt. Coronet.

    Had to rethink my team as I forgot that Sweet Honey Trees are far more of a pain in the *** than headbutting in SS. I've decided that Lucario will replace Heracross. That means that I'll be using Luxio/Luxray until Route 212 when I can first get my hands on Wooper - joy.

    Anyway, just left Jubilife to go to Floaroma. Shinx, now a Luxio, is level 20. First gym was a piece of cake with Bite for Geodude and Onix and Spark for Cranidos.

    I've beaten the E4!! Cynthia was the easiest of them all actually XD garchomp was OHKOd with a dragon dance + ice fang. everyone else was just a matter of a super affective hit to KO them all. most annoying E4 poke: YANMEGA!! it raises speed EVERY turn and uses double team. PERFECT TROLL. so annoying. took me like ten times just to get past him xD
    Anyways I got the pokeradar, and if you saw in the shiny thread, I got my first shiny hunt accomplished. Shinx. :3 Training her right now for attack EVs then speed. I think those are best, right? plz correct me, i suck at EVs. so bad that I'm nto sure if its EVs or IVs XD

    We headed off to Sandgem town, and was given a Pokedex by the Professor. He also asked whether or not I'll nickname Chimchar. Nicknaming gives the Pokemon more background, so I was obviously going to nickname it. He's called Liam. We listened to Dawn boasting about how much better she is at Pokemon than me, oh and about the Pokemon center. After that **** we headed home, had to deliver a package to Barry, and get on my Journey.

    Dawn met us on route 202 (?) and showed us how to catch a Bidoof. Yay . We then went and caught Justin the Bidoof (well done if you get my meaning), who is to become my HM slave. After a while we caught Seamus the Shinx, who had the intimidate ability and an Adamant Nature. Then we caught Hermione the Hardy Starly. We trained in the grass to level 4 and 7, and then beat the trainers on the route. We met up with Dawn again, got a VS recorder from Looker, and caught Jenny the Naive Budew. I think we'll save the training for later, when we're taking on Roark.

    The team as it stands:

    As soon as I had finished training my Pokémon to Level 42, I headed into Mt. Coronet. I battled Galactic Grunts as I went, and eventually reached the summit. There, I faced Mars and Jupiter in a double battle alongside Barry. Once those two were finished, Cyrus called forth Dialga, whose powers caused an enjoyable lights display. I battled Cyrus, leaving me to calm Dialga. I then went about RNGing Dialga, and once that was done, I caught it and left Mt. Coronet.

    I made my way to Sunyshore City then, and met Flint as soon as I entered the city. I found Volkner at the top of Vista Lighthouse, and shortly after that, battled him at his Gym. I was able to beat him quite easily thanks to my Lucario's Swords Dance and Bone Rush. I headed for Victory Road once I had gotten the Beacon Badge and Waterfall from Jasmine.

    Once I had made my way though the challenging cave, I was at the Pokémon League. However, my Pokémon weren't ready to face the Elite Four, so I began to start training them. Diamond and Pearl have an absurd level jump between the Spear Pillar and the Pokémon League. It's not present in Platinum, even though that has higher levels throughout. :/

    Platinum:
    Today, I started off in the middle of Route 209. I caught a Staravia. I defeated all of the trainers in there with my Kirlia, Gabite, Roselia, or Rotom. Since Prinplup with was overleveled, due to being the only Pokemon on my team until I defeated Gardenia, I decided to let him rest. I then placed the Odd Keystone in the Hallowed Tower and headed into Solaceon Town to heal. I met Barry who recommended I head into the Solaceon Ruins. Don't worry, I'll still visit the Lost Tower. So I got a few apps for my Pokemon Watch and headed into the Solaceon Ruins. I caught an Unown and obtained three evolutionary stones. I also got Defog and shared it with the lost Hiker. After that, I backtracked to catch two new Pokemon with my Good Rod. These Pokemon were a Goldeen and a Barboach. After catching these Pokemon I headed back to Route 209 to go into the Lost Tower with my new HM. I defeated the trainers but couldn't catch anything really new, except a Golbat, because it was around 4:00 PM. Duskull, I shall return for you. I made it to the top of the tower and got the Spell Tag and the Cleanse Tag from the hags. I left the Lost Tower and headed north to Route 210. I am done for right now and might edit this later.

    Team:
    Rotom - Level 31
    Gabite Level 29
    Roselia Level 27
    Kirlia Level 26
    Prinplup Level 33

    EDIT: When it became night I went back to the Lost Tower and caught a Duskull. I headed up to Route 210, defeated all the trainers there, and caught a Chansey and a Noctowl. I went inside the cafe to purchase some Moomoo Milk and battled some rowdy trainers in there with pretty cool Pokemon. After that, I went to Route 215 and caught a Marill, a Kadabra, a Lickitung, and a Scyther. I also defeated most of the trainers with Kirlia. I eventually reached Veilstone City and a pretty cool guy gave me a Porygon. I went into the Game Corner, got some coins and headed into the Department Store. I bought some Poke Balls and decided to level up my Kirlia and Roselia before taking on the gym. After everyone on my team was Level 32+, we headed to the Veilstone Gym.

    Team:
    Roselia Level 32
    Prinplup Level 33
    Gabite Level 32
    Kirlia Level 32
    Rotom Level 32

    Well, I got everyone to level 7 (and Liam to level 8) we met Barry. We delivered his parcel and decided to head to Oreburgh city, where the gym was. But we ended up getting harassed by a stupid Poketch man, forcing us to meet 3 idiotic clowns who ask silly questions and get a watch that I might not even use. We then battled Barry, where Hermione took out the rivals Starly. I found out that Jenny has Poison Point as an ability when Barrys' Piplup Pounded on her head. We then critted with Absorb and destroyed the penguin. We then headed back to Jubilife and healed, and to say goodbye to Seamus the Shinx. I decided I didn't want a Luxray. As a bonus, it made training tons easier.

    The team as it stands:
    Liam the Quirky Chimchar (Male)
    Hermione the Hardy Starly (Female)
    Jenny the Naive Budew (Female)

    I might not have to evolve Chimchar for the gym, since I've got a Budew. I will evolve it anyway, so I'm not 100% underleveled

    Over the past few days, I trained my Pokémon so that they could take on the Elite Four and Cynthia. I got them all to Level 55, then stocked up on supplies and began the challenge. Before that, though, Barry battled me. I took him down very easily. The Elite Four themselves also didn't provide much hardship, and I soon found myself facing Cynthia. She was a little challenging, but I beat her without worry. I was entered into the Hall of Fame, and then shortly after that, woke up in my room. My mother spoke of a ship in Snowpoint City, so I immediately headed there, and was taken to the Battle Zone. I saved in the Pokémon Center in the Fight Area, prepared to explore the island.

    We went a grew a few levels (Liam anyway) until he evolved into Monferno. We then took on the gym, which was swept by Jenny once she had a Growth up and learnt Mega Drain. We then beat Team Galactic, and we are currently training around Floraroma town.

    The team:
    Liam the Quirky Monferno (M)
    Jenny the Naive Budew (F)
    Hermione the Hardy Staravia (F) (Not going to be part of the main team)

    I restarted my Diamond several months ago, around September I think. I've been doing a Normal monotype challenge on it. The team I'm using is Bibarel, Staraptor, Clefable, Lopunny, Girafarig, and Blissey. I currently have seven badges and have just finished defeating Team Galactic and Dialga at the Spear Pillar. Now, I'm going to head towards Sunyshore City where I'll get my last badge.

    Just restarted Platinum.

    Named myself "Eric", as always, since that's my first name. I chose Turtwig for the first time. I'm also doing something I've never done before in a Pokemon game, and that is nicknaming my Pokemon. The nickname I chose for Turtwig is probably a common nickname for it, and that is Terra.


    OMG, this morning, I was training my Shinx, and I encountered a shiny Starly! I wasn't planning on capturing one yet, but obviously I changed my mind. I caught it and will begin training it after I get the badge for Roark.

    I did the boring Floraroma stuff, beat Mars and entered Eterna forest. We battled with Cheryl, and got to the end. I got the Explorer Kit early, and decided if I found a Fossil I'd use it. Well, I got 4 Heart Scales and a Armour fossil. So I've now got Juggernaut the Lonely Shieldon. We beat Gardenia, got Cut, and may go and get Rotom for a new team member...

    So, since last update I've advanced quite a bit:

    - Evolved my Eevee to a Vaporeon, whose nickname is Watermelt, and put my Prinplup (now in level 42) into the Day-Care;
    - Evolved my Luxio. He became a powerful Luxray;
    - Got to Veilstone City;
    - Got a Porygon. Named it Intel, evolved it by trading with my HeartGold and trained it.
    - Defeated Maylene thanks to Gabite's powerful Earthquake and a bit of luck. If that Metal Claw landed...
    - Helped Dawn retrieving back her PokéDex;
    - Searched 2 days for a good, Timid Houndour. Found a weak one. Bred her with my Prinplup. Got a good one and named it Cerberus. Still training him;
    - Found a shiny Houndour. I won't talk about it. No, it is too painful...
    - Got to Pastoria City.

    Right now, I'm training my team. Want to have a complete team before facing Wake.

    Squad:
    Leothning - lv.37
    Watermelt - lv.36
    Machshark - lv.36
    Intel - lv.36
    Machshark - lv.36
    Cerberus - lv.17

    I'm currently on my way to the second gym. As none of my team members can be obtained until after the fourth gym, Dodger (Luxio) will have to do the gyms on his own (unless someone would like to donate a Taillow and/or Tangela egg).

    Dodger is level 25 now, so will be a Luxray fairly soon (onsidering he's getting all the battle time). He shouldn't have a huge problem with the second or third gym, as long he's at a good level (35ish for the third). The fourth will be easy. Then I can get a Wooper (Male, Navy), raise him to parity, and fight the fifth gym. After that, I can go to Iron Island, get the Riolu egg (Male, Royal) and have a fairly balance team for the sixth gym.

    After that I'll have to find someone to trade me a Taillow egg and a Tangela egg (Carolina and Cornflower if it'll fit).

    EDIT:

    Decided to change my final team. It is a fairly long shot for someone to trade me those two eggs, so I decided to add a member to my team that is recently obtainable: Bronzor. I caught a Bashful one (didn't want to harm any stats and couldn't get one - Speed) and named it Yale (if you've not noticed, all my team members are blue and all have blue nicknames: Dodger, Navy, Royal, Yale).

    I'm also going to change my water type to Golduck. I can get a Psyduck now, rather than wait for a Wooper. I need a special-based player, and Golduck fits this better than a Pokemon I'll rely on fr Earthquake.

    The fifth member of my team will be a Garchomp named Duke. This will be my ground type.

    My final team will be as follows: Luxray (Dodger), Bronzong (Yale), Golduck (Navy), Lucario (Royal) and Garchomp (Duke).

    EV training the Shiny Gyarados from HeartGold in Diamond. Gonna have fun training it to Lv100 after that.

    Having that Red Gyarados in Diamond is cool, cause it was the reason you started out your adventure. Can't wait to beat my rival up with it lol.

    Going for my first Platinum playthrough. Already played Diamond, but that was years ago. I've played all the gens a lot, I even played through gen 5 three times now, but I only played through Diamond once and that's pretty much it for gen 4 for me.

    At the moment, I have two badges and am training around Hearthome city. Enemies seem to have quite high leveled pokemon, sometimes even fully evolved. Facing a lvl 20+ Skuntank just after the 2nd gym was surprising and pretty challenging. I like it.

    My current party consists of:
    Monferno lvl 29
    Prinplup lvl 24
    Gabite lvl 26
    Roselia lvl 22

    I plan on adding a Yanma/Yanmega and Sneasel/Weavile eventually.

    I got my 4th badge last night.

    I tried battling Maylene with my Kirlia at level 26, but that wasn't working out, so I left the gym, leveled up my Kirlia until it evolved into Gardevoir. That helped a lot more. Easily beat her then.

    We didn't catch Rotom, but went and destroyed Jupiter with Shieldon, who maxed out its defence, Taunted it, and then sweeped with Rock Tomb. We then did a bit of training, where Jenny evolved into Roselia and learned Giga Drain. We then got to Heartome city. We got ourselves Hermione the Staravias replacement- Aquapelt the Eevee. We were bored, my Pearl had a spare Waterstone, so there you go, I've got a Vaporeon. We then beat Fantina with a load of luck:

    Jenny came out, Giga Drained Duskull, but got burned. Haunter came out, got Stun spored, but critted with Shadow Claw, and Jenny was defeated. At low health, Haunter was defeated by Liams Flame Wheel. The dreaded Mismagius came out, and took out Juggernaut after a long battle, but Liamcame in, got pushed to the limit with Psybeam, and burned with a Blaze boosted Flame Wheel, which took out the ghost. We then saved. I'm planning to train in Wayward Cave, because Juggernaut and Aquapelt need it. Juggernaut needs Earthquake and Aquapelt could do with a water type move, but we won't get it. Team is levels 21-25.

    Got a good natured Psyduck. Decided to make training less tedious and *try* to find a Lucky Egg while training Yale the Bronzor. Now it has Extrasensory it is much easier, and it takes a beating so training isn't too bad. If I can get a Lucky egg this will be 100x easier, though. Once I get Psyduck and Bronzor to their evolved forms (level 33 is ideal as Luxray is that level now) I'll head to Veilstone for gym #3.
