    I climbed to the top of Mt. Coronet, defeating all the Galactic Goons along the way. Cyrus was taken to the Distortion World, so I followed him. I made my way to him, defeated him (Stupid Gyarados) and decided to defeat Giratina also for extra exp. I ran to Sunyshore and took on the entire gym with Hippotan so it could get the exp. Once I was done I surfed to Victory Road and cleared out all the trainers in the first room. That is where I stopped. I will attempt to finish Victory Road today, and I am excited that I should be able to finish my Sandstorm playthrough before Platinum comes out.

    I did it! In just one week I defeated the Platinum Elite 4. Granted this isn't exactly the most amazing accomplishment, I am still proud of myself. I didn't have any real trouble until Lucian but I still managed a semi easy win over him. Then came Cynthia. She had 4 Critical Hits in our battle. I had 0. Skulram almost defeated Spiritomb before being taken out by one of her critical hits, so Puff finished it off. Milotic defeated Puff but Rukario came in and saved the day. I allowed Rukario to be knocked out by her Lucario in order to revive Puff. Turticle defeated Lucario. Togekiss came in and defeated Turticle and Puff (Stupid critical hit Air Slash!!!) and Hippotan knocked it out. I revived Puff again while Hippotan was defeated by Roserade. Puff took out Roserade. So it was Puff and Slink against Garchomp. I leave Puff in but it is taken out by a critical hit Dragon Rush, so I send in Slink. Slink lost half of its health to an Earthquake, and got in an Ice Beam which did not defeat Garchomp. I revived Puff in order to revive Slink after it got knocked out, and Puff was hit the fourth critical hit. Slink with half of its health remains. Her Garchomp used Dragon Rush...which missed. Slink used Ice Beam, and I was the winner. Very intense battle. I will most likely finish my Heartgold game while I continue to be jealous of everyone who has Black/White.

    It's been so long since I've posted anyting on these forums, but as I've picked up playing Diamond again, why shouldn't I?

    Anyway, I'm currently trying to get Toraipen (Toraidento + Pengin, Trident + Penguin), my Empoleon, up to level 100. It's currently level 94. He is Calm natured, so he stats the stats to be a special wall, although his SpA is good enough for me to have given him four offensive Special moves: Surf, Grass Knot, Blizzard and Flash Cannon. I also collected my daily Berries (6 each from my Wepear and Pinap plants, 5 each from my Rawst and Aspear plants, I always plant the Berries I get every day), showed the guy in Solaceon my Dialga and recieved Repeat Balls, and I did some treasure hunting in the Underground. Here's what I found:

    2x Blue Shard
    3x Yellow Shard
    1x Red Shard
    1x Star Piece
    1x Everstone
    1x Fire Stone
    1x Thunderstone
    1x Sun Stone
    1x Heat Rock
    1x Mind Plate
    2x Heart Scale

    Just won a close battle against Flint in Platinum (E4 Round 1).

    My team upon entering:
    > Staraptor lv 57 @None > Close Combat, Fly, Double Team, Aerial Ace
    > Floatzel lv 57 @None > Surf, Ice Beam, Crunch, Strength
    > Torterra lv 55 @None > Earthquake, Crunch, Rock Climb, Giga Drain
    > Rotom lv 56 @Magnet > Shock Wave, Discharge, Confuse Ray, Shadow Ball.

    (Yes, I only have four Pokemon. Sue me.)

    Magmortar had killed my Floatzel with Thunderbolt and my Torterra with Flamethrower earlier in the battle, and Staraptor was weakened from her fight against Infernape. Now it was Rotom vs. Rapidash. Rotom opened with Confuse Ray, and Rapidash killed me with Flare Blitz. Then I sent in Staraptor, my last Pokemon. Staraptor prepared Fly while Rapidash got Confuse Hax'd. Staraptor almost knocks out Rapidash with that single Fly, leaving it with just enough HP to die from another Confuse Hax. However, if Rapidash were to break through its confused status, I would lose, and my last save point was before Aaron. It all came down to that random number generator: Would I win or would I fail?

    The foe's Rapidash is confused!
    It hurt itself in its confusion!
    The foes Rapidash fainted!

    Very lucky break for me back there.



    It seems the server is down for my Bronyland test results, but I am Applejack.

    I got my Celebi for Diamond and Platinum the other day. I also finished the Stark Mountain story a few days before Black and White's launch. I probably won't be doing much with my 4th gen games until I have played through Black and White.

    Here's what I did in Diamond yesterday and today. It's quite a lot

    Yesterday:
    Did the dailies as usual, had to show the news guy in Solaceon a Dustox, so I took the chance to raise whe Wurmple I had sitting in my PC and got some Great Balls. Also, I did some treasure hunting in the Underground, finding 3 Thunderstones, a Hard Stone, an Icy Rock, an Everstone, a Heat Rock and a Helix Fossil. Then, I picked my Berries, and I got a whopping 10 Pinap Berries from one plant, and 5 Berries each from my Cheri and Aspear plants. Lastly, I raised Toraipen, my Empoleon more, and after beating the League again, it was level 99 and almost 100, so I beat some wild Pokemon in Route 229, catching an Ariados in the process. Now that it is 100 I can start training Seidotaka, my Lonely Staraptor. It has an Attack boosting Nature, which is good. I have taught it this moveset: Close Combat, Return, Aerial Ace, Roost. (No Brave Bird, a -Def nature and Close Combat and then adding a recoil move is not my style )

    Today:

    Again, I did the daily stuff, showing the guy in Solaceon my Chingling and receiving a few Heal Balls. Then, I competed in the Battle Tower with my Toraipen, Seidotaka and Kurosai, my Hippowdon. Managed to get three win streaks of seven, meaning that I could battle the Tower Tycoon, Palmer. I had fought him once before but lost back then. This time, Toraipen slaughtered Dragonite with Blizzard even after taking an critical Dragon Rush. Rhyperior was sent out, and was a total fluke, as Toraipen outsped it and scored the OHKO with Surf. Milotic was a different story. Using Hypnosis and Hydro Pump to take out my injured Toraipen, I had to resort to Seidotaka, who barely survived a Hydro Pump, and damaged Milotic with Return. The Water type's next Hydro Pump missed, a lucky thing for me as otherwise I would have been down to Hippowdon, who is way slower than Milotic and weak to it. I took no chance, abusing Staraptor's insane Attack stat and the Attack boosting nature by sealing the win with Close Combat.

    Also, earlier that day, I chained a bit, something I suck at and therefore never do. My previous record was 23 Buizels. I broke that record today by chaining 38 Machop, before accidentally breaking it by stepping into a wrong patch when I was resetting the Radar, so no Shiny for me today. Regarding my Berries, I got five Berries from all my plants, and I had one Sitrus and three Pecha plants. I also worked out my ingame team's final movesets, and came to the conclusion I don't have to do too much, just get ANOTHER Return TM and maybe a Thunder Wave TM, both for my Luxray. Also, Seidotaka is currently level 90, a good first day of training as it started the day at level 83.

    I downloaded 4 Celebi's at Gamestop while I was purchasing Pokemon White Version. 2 of them are currently on my Pearl and Platinum.

    Pearl Progress: From wherever was the last time I posted, I made it to Palkia. I traded over a synchronizer from my Heartgold to my Pearl before climbing Mt. Coronet. Palkia was pretty easy to catch, a few ultra balls and it as caught, even got the nature I wanted on the first try (Thank you synchronize). I am now trying to catch Azelf and Uxie for the Pokedex.
    Team:
    Bob the Torterra Lv. 45
    Santa the Swellow Lv. 45
    Jerry the Typhlosion Lv. 48
    Ken the Banette Lv. 44
    Squishy the Tentacruel Lv. 45

    Platinum: I honestly don't know what to do with this file. It was a great file that gave me a shiny Buizel (now a Floatzel) and a Shiny Giratina. The game was going great until I decided to try getting a shiny Darkrai. The boring process of SRing and school making it so I could not SR much led to only 2000 SR and then I just stopped playing. I started it up last year after I had been playing Heartgold a lot and ended up just catching Darkrai. I'm thinking about doing any of the other stuff in this game like catching Shaymin and the other legendaries and see if I can get back into it. Might end up restarting it. Nothing will be done with it though as now I am playing White.

    So I started a new file in my Platinum game, as the poor thing has just been sitting in my room dusty and neglected.. -.- And this was about a week ago, so, so far, I have made it to Solaceon town and saved there.

    Irenia, a female Buizel
    Ember, a male ponyta
    Turtle, a male Grotle
    Drifloon, male
    Mystic, a female Meditite
    And a shiny Suicune-one that I got from a wifi event.

    I started my journey through Sinnoh on pearl today. Started with a male Piplup and called him Emperor. I trained him to lvl 10 and decided to catch a female Shinx to support my team. I called her Lucy and I am currently in the process of training her.

    So it's been like 3 months since I last posted on SPPf (or was it more?)...

    Actually restarted Pearl again, now I'm continuing from my last restart (?).

    Currently in Mt. Coronet, heading towards Hearthrome City. Team's pretty decent, I doubt I'll pick up a 4th member till later.

    Current Team:
    Aphrodite (Female Clefairy): Level 28
    Athena (Female Beautifly): Level 31
    Hermes (Male Grotle): Level 31

    and a Bidoof HM Slave. Currently @ 2 Badges, my pace is kinda slowly. I'm a grinder I guess

    Default Platinum After Journey Post-2 Year Anniversary

    It's been a while since I've posted about Platinum. I've kind of been busy playing 5th Gen. Either way, I played some Platinum today. I went to the Battleground since it's been forever since I've battle any of the Gym Leader. I beat them all with what's in my team. My team still hasn't changed in Platinum. I also walked around and enjoyed the scenery. Doesn't compete with Black and White, but I remember when this game came out. Well that's it for this post. Happy Anniversary to Pokemon Platinum!
    - Homie has been my favourite Pokémon since I evolved my Marshtomp in Sapphire.

    I arrived in Veilstone and after looking around for a while, I went to the gym and beated Maylene. I helped Dawn with getting her Pokedex back and that was it for the day.

    So I finally decided after a lot of White to start my Baby Scramble challenge in my Diamond.
    Even though I haven't really played it in several years, and had already transferred all the desirable Pokemon and berries out of it and into PtHGW...I still was a little regretful and seeing the data deleted. I took a few pictures before I did, just for posterity, though.

    So, putting that behind me, I started up a new game.
    -A boy again, this time by the name of "Diamond" while my rival will be "Barry"
    -Usually starting game stuff goes here. My scramble didn't include a starter, so I just picked a Piplup since I've never used on before.
    -Woah Starly come a wow Diamond battles are waaaaay slower than gen 5 battles like god damn. This is going to take some getting used to.
    -Always nervous going through those early battles with no Pokeballs. One day I know I'm going to encounter a shiny and there will be nothing I can do about it.
    -Did you know Pound has no real animation to it? The sprite remains stationary.
    -I make it to Sandgem, and Piplup gained a level. Decided to name it Peppy.
    -Why is there never an option to skip these tours and capture tutorials. Yes yes I get it is for new players but come on give a yes/no option!Baffling that the only game to do so was FR "We have tutorials for EVERYTHING"LG
    -I caught a couple of Shinx so I can actually start my challenge proper. See, my challenge calls for a Munchlax and a Cleffa. There is noooo way I am leaving an entire team slot for a Pokemon with a 1% chance of showing up on a tree that takes a day to get a Pokemon to it. So I transferred over Grant the Winner's Path Munchlax; he's level 5, has Pick Up, and the virtually useless in the early game Leftovers. The other thing I traded over was a Cleffa egg; it needed to know Metronome so I had to breed for it. Hopefully it comes out male.
    -NOW for adventure

    Made a lot of progress since I last posted.

    - Crushed Maylene's whole gym with Beautifly, Torterra dealt with Lucario however.
    - Went off to crush Wake now, equal effort by Clefairy/Beautifly/Torterra
    - In-game stuff blah blah, reached Celestic and all.
    - Crushed Fantina's whole gym with Torterra alone.
    - After that it's running off to Canalave. Had to evolve my HM Slave Bidoof to a Bibarel though.
    - Crushed Rival then crushed Byron's gym with just Torterra, surprisingly Bronzor gives me problems
    - Probably need to start buying TMs for Clefairy because I am definitely having trouble with the numerous NPC Gyarados.
    - Caught three Gible, decided to use the female one and name her Artemis.

    Current Team:
    Athena, Level 45 Beautifly
    Aphrodite, Level 45 Clefairy
    Hermes, Level 47 Torterra
    Artemis, Level 19 Gible

    Training up Artemis now, got the Wayward Cave part with Mira not done yet as well as Iron Island so this is good.

    Diamond: Hatching for a shiny Torkoal.
    Platinum: Random encountering for a shiny Gible. I have around 7600 encounters for it. It's taken me a while to get to such a number because I've been keeping track by killing every Pokemon I see in Wayward Cave. I really hope I get Gible to shine this time.

    Here is a summation of events over the past few days

    -HRGGGGGGNH
    -I traded over Smoochum!
    -HRRRRNGGHGHGHGN
    -Gardenia more like Gardead
    -ARGELAKSJDASRJETOIETJER

    This is not as enjoyable as I thought it would be. It's always something, it seems and the conditions aren't helping. And I still need to reraise a Happiny, hunt down an Azurill and augh

    After picking up Platinum after months of hiatus I found myself outside of Sunyshore City with all 8 gym badges. I decided it was time to train at Victory Road, so after making some party adjustments so I could get there I defeated a couple of swimmers and found a Heart Scale so I could teach Torterra Wood Hammer. After that I managed to get to Victory Road, but upon realizing I was low on some items I flew back to Sunyshore and purchased 40 Full Restores, a couple Revives and Max Repels along with 75 Ultra Balls. My first encounter was a female Gabite, I decided to catch it and to my surprise it was an Adamant natured so I kept it and put it on my team. I was currently training Shelgon but I ditched it in order to use Gabite. After about 4 hours of training I finally got her to evolve into Garchomp. Looking through my TMs I realized I never went to get TM Earthquake so I headed back to Wayward Cave to get it to teach to Garchomp.

    I finally made it through Victory Road where Infernape finally learned Flare Blitz(never realized how much recoil I took from it.). After knowing I was still under leveled for the Elite Four I decided to challenge anyway to at least gain some EXP. But who comes barging in before I can talk to the man to prove I can challenge the E4? That's right Barry himself, he challenged me to a battle, and I can never back down from a Pokemon Battle. He opened with Staraptor and against my Garchomp, Staraptor was up to some funny business as it used U-Turn about 3 times not allowing Garchomp to get a hit in. After some back and forth I was down to my Porygon-Z and Barry was left with a Roserade, which was taken down with Ice Beam. I proved that I deserve a shot against the Elite Four and my first E4 opponent was Aaron.

    Infernape lvl 58
    Garchomp lvl 53
    Torterra lvl 54
    Porygon-Z lvl 53
    Gyarados lvl 51
    HM Slave Bibarel
    Currently Playing: Black, White 2
