    So much for a break and rest. I had nothing to do today so I skipped ahead to Wattson.

    - Entered the Flash area of the Granite Cave in search of Steven.
    - Delivered the letter to Steven and received Steel Wing.
    - Sailed to Slateport Beach with Mr. Briney.
    - Won the Seashore House challenge to win the Soda Pop.
    - Taught Nincada Swagger.
    - Taught Ralts Torment.
    - Nincada swept the Aqua grunts in the Oceanic Museum.
    - Fought through the trainers near the Altering Cave.
    - Ralts evolved into Kirlia during the first Trick Room challenge.
    - Completed the first Trick Room challenge.
    - Ambushed by May:
    - Very fun battle. Wingull was Swaggered by Nincada then taken out by Marshtomp.
    - It cost me three Super Potions, but Kirlia took out the troublesome Grovyle. Torment was largely the reason, preventing two consecutive Pursuits.
    - Slugma Yawned and Yawned and Yawned. I alternately switched between Kirlia and Marshtomp until it Embered Marshtomp, then I used Water Gun for the win.
    - I have come to the impression that I beat May through switching. Wierd.
    - Nincada evolved into Ninjask on Route 110. Shedinja resulted from this. I will only seriously train Shedinja.
    - Taught Kirlia Calm Mind.
    - Taught Marshtomp Rock Smash.
    - Got the Acro Bike.
    - Taught Shroomish Headbutt.
    - Swept the Cycling Road trainers.
    - Shedinja is thinner than a paper plate...
    - ...but it one-shotted Wally's Ralts.
    - Obtained the Coin Case.
    - Did some training on Routes 111 and 118.
    - After my Pokemon, with the exception of Ninjask, reached Level 22 I challenged the Mauville Gym.
    - Cleared Mauville Gym except the leader, mostly with Shedinja.
    - Shroomish evolved into Breloom on Route 110 before I challenged Wattson.
    - Taught Breloom Mach Punch.
    - Battling Wattson:
    - I thought Voltorb would be helpless against Shedinja, but the orb had Rollout. Quick night for the shell.
    - Kirlia was getting smashed by Rollout; I switched to Breloom and put things to a stop with Mach Punch.
    - A Headbutt flinch and a Mach Punch took out Electrike.
    - For Magneton and Manectric I took no chances, using Marshtomp. Manectric took a while to fall and Howled Quick Attacks got Marshtomp down to 7 HP.
    - Won the Dynamo Badge!
    - Taught Kirlia Shock Wave.
    - Taught Breloom Bulk Up.
    - Off to Rusturf Tunnel, then Route 111.

    Current team:

    Level 23 Marshtomp (Fisher) (Quick Claw; Torrent)
    - Water Gun
    - Rock Smash
    - Rock Tomb
    - Mud Shot

    Level 23 Kirlia (Gown) (Cheri Berry; Synchronize)
    - Confusion
    - Calm Mind
    - Shock Wave
    - Flash

    Level 23 Breloom (Funga) (Miracle Seed; Effect Spore)
    - Mach Punch
    - Headbutt
    - Leech Seed
    - Bulk Up

    Level 23 Shedinja (Skin) (Soothe Bell; Speed Boost)
    - Leech Life
    - Cut
    - Swagger
    - Sand-Attack

    Level 21 Ninjask (Helper) (Silk Scarf; Speed Boost)*
    - Leech Life
    - Cut
    - Swagger
    - Sand-Attack

    * I do not intend to train Ninjask since I am aiming for an Altaria later on.

    *UPDATE*

    So after finishing my tasks in Fortree i made my way to Lilycove and beat my rival, i then healed my pokemon and caught a few Pokemon along the way to Mt Pyre.Before i made my way to the top of Mt Pyre to beat the Team Magma grunts i made my way through the inside of it to beat all the trainers and collect all of the items.After doing these few tasks i appointed myself, i made my way to the top of Mt Pyre and beat all of the Grunts but failed to stop them taking the red orb, but on the upside an old lady gave me a magma emblem saying that a grunt had dropped it.

    So i made my way to Mt Chimney to find the small cave that earlier in my adventure a Magma grunt was guarding, as i approached the cave the ground shook and the entrance opened.
    I made my way through the cave battling various Grunts and Pokemon, and as i finally reached the end of the cave i found Maxie stood infront of a unanimated Groudon and i gasped as he released Groundon with the blue orb, he then blamed me for it not listening to him and a battle ensued.
    Fortunately even though my Pokemon were a tiny bit underlevelled he was beaten by a combination of my Azumarril (Crush) and my Hariyama (E-honda)

    I am now currently back in Lilycove city ransacking Team Aquas temporary base, i have beaten various trainers and i've found and collected the masterball, i shall update as and when i get any further.

    Team currently!!
    Adder - Seviper - LV34 - Quiet - F
    Totail - Swellow - LV34 - Sassy - M
    E-Honda - Hariyama - LV34 - Serious - M
    Donvegetan - Tropius - LV34 - Jolly - M
    Manloth - Vigoroth - LV34 - Adamant - M
    Crush - Azumarril - LV35 - Hardy - M

    • Made my way to Petalburg, avoiding all the battles I could
    • 'Helped' Wally capture his Raltz, a lovely male
    • Quickly went out and captured a female Wingull for my team
    • Backtracked to train Wingull against the trainers I avoided before
    • Went into the forest and captured a male Shroomish
    • Trained him to be even with Wingull

    Long space between Mauville and Lavaridge Gyms, especially since I caught and trained two new Pokemon!

    - Gave Shedinja the Quick Claw, basically out of necessity.
    - Apart from one Doduo Pursuit, Shedinja breezed through Route 117.
    - Taught Shedinja Fury Cutter.
    - Broke the rock in Rusturf Tunnel and obtained Strength.
    - Taught Breloom Strength.
    - Challenged the Winstrates:
    - Swept Victor with Kirlia.
    - Easily beat Victoria's Roselia with one Confusion.
    - Swept Vivi with Breloom.
    - Took down Vicky's Meditite with Shedinja.
    - Double battle with Gabby and Ty on Route 111 was over before it started because of my Pokemon's levels in comparison to theirs. Breloom smashed Ty and Shedinja beat Gabby.
    - Taught Shedinja Spite.
    - Ran through the Fiery Path with such speed that I encountered only one wild Pokemon.
    - Taught Shedinja Secret Power.
    - Made a Secret Base on Route 111.
    - Watched the Gabby and Ty interview. My after-battle word was "Amusing". Seeing the words "Shedinja... and Breloom... and Amusing. That's something special." actually made me laugh.
    - Caught a Bashful male Torkoal in the Fiery Path. Named it Hearth. May actually consider training it instead of a Ninetales as I had earlier planned. (Altaria should be a good enough special wall.)
    - Gave Torkoal the Macho Brace. (Hey, it does not need Speed.)
    - Defeated a Black Belt's Level 19 Machop with my new Level 14 Torkoal.
    - Went to Route 117 to train Torkoal.
    - Taught Torkoal Fire Spin.
    - Taught Torkoal Body Slam.
    - Trained Torkoal for about an hour on Routes 111 and 112, as well as in the Fiery Path, until it was on par with my other Pokemon.
    - Taught Kirlia Psychic.
    - Laughed heartily when I switched Shedinja into a Koffing's Selfdestruct.
    - Taught Shedinja Dig.
    - Taught Torkoal Protect.
    - Talked to Lanette.
    - Caught a Rash male Swablu on Route 114. Named it Lyre.
    - Taught Swablu Steel Wing.
    - Taught Swablu Thief.
    - Taught Swablu Safeguard.
    - Spent a couple of hours on Routes 117, 113 and 114 training Swablu until it was on par with my other Pokemon. Now my team is complete.
    - Encountered Team Aqua and Team Magma in Meteor Falls.
    - Rode the Cable Car up to Mt. Chimney's peak.
    - Cruised past the grunts with Swablu.
    - Defeated Tabitha smoothly with Swablu, Breloom and Kirlia.
    - Battled Maxie:
    - Bulked Up Breloom to beat Mightyena with two Mach Punches.
    - Switched to Marshtomp for Camerupt; won with Mud Shot and Water Gun.
    - Switched to Kirlia for Zubat; won with Psychic.
    - Did some training on the Jagged Pass.
    - Challenged Lavaridge Gym with team at Level 28.
    - Lost only Shedinja in Lavaridge Gym.
    - Battled Flannery, my favourite leader:
    - Personal goal: win without using Marshtomp, on the verge of boosting up to Level 30. Could I do it?
    - For sheer fun (and because it worked) I Dug her Numel and Slugma into the ground with Shedinja.
    - Against Camerupt I tried to paralyze it with Secret Power. Failed and got Overheated.
    - Had Kirlia come in, set up two Calm Minds and Psychic Camerupt down.
    - TORKOAL SURVIVED A +2 PSYCHIC WITH ABOUT 5 HP LEFT AND GOT A CRITICAL HIT BODY SLAM. HOW? WHY?!
    - Sacrificed Swablu in order to steal Torkoal's White Herb and get Safeguard up to prevent Body Slam paralysis.
    - Sacrificed Breloom in order to Leech Seed the sucker.
    - Beat Flannery's powerhouse with my own Level 29 Torkoal, which nobly fought through attraction and paralysis to deliver the final blow. An epic stall war between her Attract and my Curse.
    - Won the Heat Badge, and without using Marshtomp!
    - Longest gym battle so far at 10 minutes, 8 seconds (I record them so that I can make this commentary).
    - Taught Torkoal Overheat.
    - Got the Go-Goggles from May.
    - Healed my badly bruised team.
    - Off to the Fiery Path to get the TM for Toxic.

    Okay, did a bunch yesterday after posting, so let's do this.

    • Got through Petalburg Woods, saving the Devon worker along the way.
    • Healed up, then went to search for a Whismur for my team, a lovely female.
    • Trained the team to lv.15 to face Roxanne.
    • Wingull swept through the trainers, with some help from Whismur.
    • Shroomish ripped Nosepass a new one with a combination of Absorb and Leech Seed.
    • Met the Devon worker again as I left and went to get his Goods.
    • Angry that he'd stolen a defenseless Wingull, Whismur and I beat the grunt down.
    • Briney decided to reward us with free transport, which we immediately accepted after getting the Poke'Nav.
    • Went to Dewford Island before finally healing my team from the gym battle.
    • Trained Shroomish to lv 20 in the cave, decided to hold off training Whismur until we hit mainland again.
    • Wingull got her training going through the gym trainers
    • Lv 19 Makuhita? Meet lv 18 Wingull. Now. Die! *evil*
    • Wingull reached lv 20 searching for Steven.
    • Delivered the Letter, registered Steven's number.
    • Healed my team, then headed for Slateport.
    • Trained Whismur on the beach, she reached lv 20 and evolved.
    • Found Stern, rescued him from Team Aqua, delivered the Goods.
    • Made my way to Mauville, challenging the Trick House with Shroomish on the way.
    • Convinced Wally to not face Watson yet, then went to visit him in Verdanturf.
    • Trained my team to lv 25, Shroomish and Wingull evolved.
    • Went to face the gym.
    • Breloom and Loudred reached lv 26 against gym trainers.
    • Breloom took down the first of Watson's four, only to be taken out by dumbluck and a Manectric. Sacrificed Loudred and Pelliper to get him back on the field, where he finally won. Reached lv 27 in the process.
    • Realized Pelliper was behind, so had her sweep the Winstons and lead through Fiery Path.
    • Captured a Brave male Torkoal for my team.
    • Got to Fallarbor before I realized that I forgot to break through to Rustboro.


    I'm gonna backtrack back to the tunnel so I can break through. I'll train Torkoal along the way.

    *UPDATE*

    I completely destroyed team aqua in their temporary base but they escaped with the submarine into a unknown location, eventually i ended up trying to beat Tate and Liza but ended up losing the first time, so i went to the Abandoned ship to train my Pokemon a little bit, while i was there i picked up several usefull items as well as TM13 IceBeam.
    I came back to Tate and Liza and came up with a simple strategy, i noticed Manloth had high special attack as well as high attack (adamant nature) so decided to teach him Shadow ball, I started the new battle against T + L with E-Honda (Hariyama) and Manloth (Slaking) leading, i ended up winning the battle more easily then i predicted (thanks to shadowball).

    I'd almost forgotten to mention that i replaced Crush (Azumarril) with a newly caught Spheal who happened to have a modest nature, he is now a Sealeo.

    We are now currently in the spacecenter beating all of the team magma grunts, i shall keep you posted as and when anything else happens.

    Team curently:

    E-Honda - Hariyama - LV37 - Serious - M
    Manloth - Slaking - LV38 - Adamant - M
    Donvegeten - Jolly - LV38 - M
    Adder - Quiet - LV38 - F
    Totail - Sassy - LV38 - m
    Hailrus - Modest - LV38 - M

    Default Recent Happenings in My Emerald

    -After training my Pokemon until level 50-54, and with tons of healing items, I went challenging the Elite Four.
    -Sidney was always easy. Breloom+Sky Uppercut=Defeated Sidney.
    -With Absol and Shadow Ball, I managed to beat Phoebe without too much problem.
    -Here came Glacia, the women who gave me a lot of problem in my Ruby. Now in Emerald, since I had trained my Pokemon more than my Ruby, I defeated Glacia more easily than Ruby.
    -Defeated Drake with my Swampert's Ice Beam and my own Salamence.
    -Now, it was time to face the Champion, Wallace. I mainly used Manectric, Breloom and Swampert when battling him. When Wallace sent out his last Pokemon - Milotic, my Manectric used Thunder Wave on it first. Luckily, his Milotic paralized in every turn, so my Manectric's Thunderbolt 2HKO'd it without any loss of HP.
    -Finally, defeated Wallace. My team was recorded into the Hall of Fame.



    Team recorded in the Hall of Fame:
    Lv.50 Salamence
    Lv.50 Swellow
    Lv.51 Breloom
    Lv.55 Swampert
    Lv.51 Absol
    Lv.52 Manectric

    I recently restarted, and have a Zubat, Aron, Combusken, and Wingull, ranging from level 15 to 20 (still training). I decided to farm the Battle tent in Slateport for Full Heals, and found out that about 30 different pokemon are used!

    Wailmer (knows Rollout and Water Pulse)
    Magicarp
    Magnamite (knows Supersonic)
    Mightyena (knows Poison fang as it's only attacking move, and Howl)
    Linoone
    Beutifly (knows Giga Drain and Gust)
    Loudred

    Can't remember them all... maybe someone could post a list?
    Pokemon TCG revamped: The game! - A link to my game. It's locked now, but I'm working on reviving it. If you attempt to recreate it, I will EAT YOU.



    ...what? I know that I agree with this entirely.

    Got a lot done since I last posted.

    • Backtracked to break through to Rustboro, got the Repeat Ball.
    • Made my way back to Meteor Falls, training Torkoal along the way.
    • Rescued Cosmo, then went on to beat down Magma on the volcano.
    • On that, Pelliper rock.
    • Having trained my Torkoal to be even with the team I went to face Flannery, after healing of course.
    • Beat Flannery with little trouble, once again, Pelliper rock.
    • Brendan gave me the GoGoGoggles, then I went and grabbed the free egg from the hot spring.
    • With my new goggles, I went on to the desert.
    • Captured myself a male Trapinch. Team Complete!
    • Trained Trapinch to be level with the others before heading off to face Norman.
    • You'd think having a fighting type would make it easier wouldn't you? WRONG!!
    • Lost my first try, death to anything that uses Teeter Dance.
    • Second try, just barely won after Slaking poisoned himself on Breloom's Effect Spore with barely any HP left. Breloom was my last pokemon, with 6 health.
    • Roamed far and wide around the second half of the continent while training my team.
    • Used my two Rare Candies to evolve Trapinch after getting annoyed at his constantly being out sped.
    • Had everyone at level 36 when I faced Winona.
    • She went down easier than her trainers did. Wow.
    • Chased Team Aqua off Mt Pyre. Got the Magma Emblem.
    • Tracked Team Magma down to their secret base, fought my way to Groudon.
    • That idiot Maxie released Groudon, then blamed me when his ugly mug chased the poor thing away.
    • We beat, Maxie, down! Freaking Camerupt, take out my Vibrava, and Crobat, took out my Loudred...

    I found my Sapphire, I then migrated my E4 team to Diamond. Which I then lost. So now I have a Sapphire with nothing of worth on it. I sense a restart in my near future.. -_-

    After a long not-playing period, I entered my Azumarill, David, into a Hyper Rank Coolness contest (for 'bout the umpteenth time). Still didn't get the Ribbon.
    I name Pokemon after NHL players and race car drivers.

    Since Flannery --> Norman takes hardly any time, I decided not to post this until the sixth gym.

    - Taught Torkoal Toxic.
    - Entered the Route 111 Desert.
    - Evolved Kirlia into Gardevoir in the desert.
    - Completed the second and third Trick House challenges.
    - Taught Torkoal Flamethrower.
    - Challenged Petalburg Gym at Level 30.
    - Yikes. On the first trainer in Petalburg Gym my Torkoal accidentilly paralyzed a Swellow. Thankfully, the still-fast-enough to go first bird could not move.
    - Did Norman hand out Shadow Ball TMs at a Normal-type convention? Shedinja got axed by a Wigglytuff of all things.
    - At least Shedinja defeated a Vigoroth and a Zangoose by itself.
    - Challenging Norman at level 30! I must be overconfident.
    - Battled Norman:
    - Since Swablu needed the experience of a gym win I used about five Super Potions to let it beat Spinda.
    - Switched to Breloom against Vigoroth. A Bulk Up, some potions and a Mach Punch did it in.
    - Linoone fell to a single Mach Punch.
    - Norman thinks he's smart, right? I outpredicted him by using Leech Seed before his Counter.
    - Switched to Torkoal on the "loafing around" turn.
    - Protect, Flamethrower, Protect, Flamethrower. Slaking is done, and Torkoal is untouched.
    - Won the Balance Badge!
    - Got Surf from Wally's father.
    - Taught Marshtomp Surf.
    - Surfed through Route 103's river.
    - Completed the fourth Trick House challenge.
    - Shut off the New Mauville generator.
    - Taught Shedinja Confuse Ray.
    - Taught Gardevoir Thunderbolt.
    - Visited the Abandoned Ship.
    - Taught Marshtomp Ice Beam.
    - Crossed Route 118's river.
    - Second Gabby and Ty battle was a breeze. Breloom Mach Punched both Loudred and Magnemite.
    - Interview: "Marshtomp... and Breloom... and Smack... That's deep! There's deep significance behind that quote!"
    - Visited the Berry Master's farm and house.
    - Entered the jungle that is Route 119.
    - Beat the Aqua grunts in the Weather Institute with ease.
    - Beat Shelley with Breloom and Torkoal. Surprisingly, Torkoal did in Mightyena with one Flamethrower. Maybe the Charcoal and all the Special Attack EVs from roasting wild Oddishes back on Route 117 helped.
    - Saved the Weather Institute and received a Castform as a reward.
    - Ambushed by May. Seriously, she comes out of nowhere.
    - Battled May:
    - Breloom beat Slugma with one Strength.
    - Swablu took down Lombre with three Pecks.
    - Torkoal Flamethrowered the no longer menacing Grovyle to secure the easy win.
    - Taught Swablu Fly.
    - In Fortree, bought some desks and chairs for my Secret Base.
    - Taught Shedinja Hidden Power; it did a lot to a Level 25 Oddish, so it must be physical.
    - Neutral against Linoone. Narrowed down to Bug, Ground, Poison, Rock or Steel.
    - Neutral against Pelipper. Probably Poison, then.
    - Super effective against Tropius. Thus Poison, and thus not worth keeping.
    - Reverted to previous save file to see if Hidden Power would work for Swablu.
    - Very weak, it seems. Neutral against Zigzagoon.
    - Neutral against Oddish.
    - Weak against Tentacool. Thus must be Bug or Steel, and not worth using.
    - Reverted to previous save file to see if Hidden Power would work for Torkoal.
    - Super effective against Oddish, but not good enough for a KO. Either Flying, Ice, Fire or Psychic.
    - Neutral against Tentacool. Thus Flying, and not worth using.
    - Tried with Breloom. Super effective against Linoone. Thus Fighting. Thus not worth using.
    - Reverted to initial save file after giving up on Hidden Power.
    - Third Gabby and Ty battle was a bit more of a battle, as in Gabby's Loudred actually got a Stomp in before fainting.
    - Beat up some Kecleons after getting the Devon Scope.
    - Challenged Fortree Gym with my team at level 34.
    - Swablu evolved into Altaria after a trainer battle.
    - Taught Altaria Dragonbreath.
    - Battled Winona:
    - Led with Altaria against Swablu. Safeguarded, then took out Winona's bird without too much trouble, finishing it off with Fly.
    - Her own Altaria came in. Renewed the Safeguard before switching to Marshtomp. Problem? Winona's Altaria got two Dragon Dances in.
    - Earthquake takes Marshtomp down to less than 50%, and Ice Beam does 70%. Not good.
    - What? Marshtomp survived the second Earthquake with 5 HP left, and Ice Beamed for the win! Phew.
    - Oh no, Tropius.
    - Like I fear, Tropius survives Ice Beam. Surely Magical Leaf is coming. Guess what happened next? IT GOT FROZEN SOLID. Marshtomp wins again.
    - Switch to Gardevoir for Pelipper. Get paranoid of Protect, using Calm Mind twice, and avoid Supersonic. Thunderbolt does the job.
    - I could destroy Skarmory with Gardevoir, but wanting to rest it, use Torkoal to take down the steel bird.
    - Won the Feather Badge!
    - My heroic Marshtomp, who did the improbable twice in surviving that second +2 Earthquake and freezing Tropius, just makes it to Level 36 and evolves into a Swampert.
    - Taught Shedinja Aerial Ace.
    - Team is desynchronized, but rather than getting everyone up to Level 36 now I will rest them for a job well done.

    Current team:

    Level 36 Swampert (Fisher) (Quick Claw; Torrent)
    - Surf
    - Mud Shot
    - Ice Beam
    - Rock Smash

    Level 35 Gardevoir (Gown) (Pecha Berry; Synchronize)

    - Dig
    - Secret Power
    - Aerial Ace

    Default better chances of catching regis

    [QUOTE=Sapphire_Pichu;8172666]I just defeated Wallace last night. On to Victory road. I'm searching for shinies on the way, or others I haven't caught. I caught Regirock, and I'm trying on Registeel, but he's hard to catch, and I don't have any special balls anymore!!! I wasted my preimer ball, masterball and luxury ball on Regirock. =[

    Try pressing Up D- button+A+B button after throwing the pokeball and before it gets over them and press and hold the button after they got inside the pokeball

    I decided to spend some time while waiting for the English release of HG, therefore, I decided to re-start my Pokemon Emerald, so expect me to post here frequently.


    At the beginning, I do like to inform that my team is going to be only my starter, so no complains.

    After choosing Torchic, I went all through until I reached Roxanne whom I defeated easily. Then, I went to the second gym, where I got the second badge swiftly, and now I am in Mauville City, and I will defeat the third leader after some time. My Combusken is now at lv.32.

    I will post in more details later, but I couldn't now as I would have typed a lot!

    Ok, I've been playing Emerald madly since I restarted it a few days ago. I've gotten through it easily enough, save for Wattson. My team (at the time) had terrible Sp. Defenses, so they couldn't stand more than three electric attacks. So I came up with my Kirlia using Calm Mind / Double Team a few times each before sweeping his team... it took me three tries, but I beat Wattson... until I messed up my game pak and it froze on me... so it took me another four tries before I beat him (and I saved afterwards). I'm now surfing between Dewford and Slateport, training my team for the 7th gym.
