I just finished the third gym in Goldenrod city on my both HG and SS.
On my HG, I also just won the Bug catching competition by catching a wild Pinsir, female, level 14. I used lv 26 Surfing Pikachu to paralyzed it first, n after like 10-15 ball, it's finally mine w/ full HP. Well, after that I finally caught a Scyther too but I decided to keep Pencil (my Pinsir's name) b/c I already got one on jap HG. It has better HP anyway.
I won the first prize n got a sun stone.
I haven't joined the bug contest on SS, I only just caught a sunkern. I wish a shiny would pop up.^^
My current team on HG:
Betsy the crobat lv. 26
Surfing Pikachu lv. 27(I didn't wanna nickname it, just let the Jap name)
Heiriche the Heracross lv. 23(I forget his name's spelling, lol)
Queeny the Horsea lv. 26
and Lyle the shiny Totodile lv. 15
Typhex the shiny Cyndaquil lv. 14
Lynn the Lanturn lv. 27
Bate the crobat lv. 27
Jamie the kadabra lv. 24
Slowpoke lv. 23 (forget his nick)
and Flying Pikachu lv. 26 (no nick either)
As you guys can see, I'm into Crobat so much that I have it on both version's team. One male and one female.
This is the first time I use not only one gender pokemon on my team, that's why I could knock down Whitney's pokemon easily (avoiding the infatuation technique).
Other thing, I could catch both wild Abra on HG/SS using great ball. Just threw it.
Next, I'm gonna evolve my Kadabra into Alakazam n traded a ice beam TM for my Lanturn, also some other things.
