Was shiny hunting some routes for the past day er so. Not too motivated so I think I'll continue on with my journey. Raised umbreon and meganium to lvl 37. Meganium does very well in battle because of its high IVs. Umbreon has been doing okay, Its lack of IVs in HP and Def makes things a little challenging, but Its fully EVd in both so were working with what we got! Plus meganium backs us up with reflect and light screen. Im on my way to the light house now, Hoping we find a shiny sometime before shiny gyarados.

I explored more of Mt. Silver Cave and I fought many Pokemon and then I used Surf and Waterfall to explore some of the other caves. I caught a wild Misdreavus inside a smaller cavern, then I headed outside and I entered Mt. Silver through another cave. I continued to climb towards Mt. Silver's peak and I reached the snowy area and I captured a Sneasel there. I found Moltres's cave next and then I arrived at the top of Mt. Silver. I didn't want to challenge Red to a battle though, so I decided to train my darlings some more. I healed my team at the Mt. Silver Pokemon Center after I trained for about 40 minutes and I flew to Goldenrod City. I went to National Park next and caught two wild Sunkern and evolved one.

Got around to doing more battles at the Battle Tower. I won another 21 battles, which brings my current streak to 56 wins. Overall, I didn't have too much trouble with the trainers I faced today. My Scizor was able to handle quite a few Pokemon on its own and even swept a few trainers entirely. The fight against Palmer at battle 49 was pretty easy this time as Scizor and Garchomp handled his team pretty well. I think the hardest Pokemon I faced today was this Milotic whose Surf did quite a lot of damage to my Pokemon.
Right now, I have more than 200 BP saved up, which'll be pretty useful in the future. Anyway, I'll try to continue my streak again pretty soon.

Spent a couple days soft resetting for shiny sandshrew in goldenrod. Then, my wife playfully kicks the DS out of my hand after I had just pulled a batch of 5 and the game froze. So, after I gave up on shiny sandshrew I went and cleared the light house with umbreon. after that we set sail towards cianwood. We took on the gym and meganium swept them all. after that we set our sights on the shiny gyarados at lake rage. Ill be soft resetting for good IVs over the next how ever many days. Using adamant synchronizer. Ive gotten some decent spreads so far but I want the best I can get.
Got a 29/5/31/15/31/27 adamant gyarados at lake of rage and decided to keep it. I used a heavy ball to catch it. Overall its IVs are pretty good, As long as I run dragon dance I dont think I'll mind the 5 IV in atk. Going to EV train it all atk and speed. hopfully I run into a shiny sentret while I train!

I fought quite a few more trainers at the Battle Tower today. I got through most of the battles just fine, though there were a few challenging ones. The toughest battle was definitely this one I had against an Aggron with the elemental punches and a Quick Claw as its held item. It killed both my Scizor and Garchomp, but fortunately there was no Quick Claw activation against my Starmie so I was able to Surf it.
Anyway, I defeated another three sets of trainers today, so my streak is now at 77. That's a new record for me on this game and hopefully I'll be able to improve on it even more next time I play.

I finally fought Red at Mt. Silver's summit. He used Pikachu first and I used my Typhlosion. I defeated Pikachu with Earthquake, then Red used Lapras. I switched to Bellossom and I defeated Lapras with Petal Dance. Red sent out his Snorlax next and I used my Typhlosion's ThunderPunch. Snorlax attacked and Typhlosion took a lot of damage. I switched to Lucario next and I used Aura Sphere against Red's Snorlax and Snorlax fainted. Red then used Venusaur and my darling Noctowl won that match with Air Slash attacks. I defeated Red's Blastoise with Ampharos's ThunderPunch and then I used Quagsire against Charizard. I defeated Charizard with Waterfall and I defeated Red. The credits rolled after that.

Yesterday, I continued my Battle Tower streak and spent around two hours or so fighting trainers. My team handled most of the trainers I faced very well. I still had Scizor as my lead and it took care of most of the non-Fire types on its own. Some of the trainers I battled had pretty weak teams as well, like this one person who had a Prinplup for some reason. However, there were still some pretty tough battles. My Pokemon struggled against foes who carried all three of Thunder/Fire/Ice Punch and I know I got lucky with some critical hits and whatnot.
Anyway, I kept playing until I lost, which happened when my Garchomp was my final Pokemon against a Rhydon. Garchomp could've beaten it, but the Rhydon had a Focus Sash. That loss happened on battle 123, so my record is 122 wins! I am glad about that because now I have the black trainer card on HeartGold!
Now that I have 100 wins at the Battle Tower, there's nothing else I want to accomplish there. I'll probably battle there whenever I need BP, but I don't plan on going for higher streaks.

I began HG again, picked the male character, and left my home. After meeting Lyra, I went to Professor Elm's lab to get my Johto Starter. I chose Chikorita since I had used the others many times before. I left town and Professor Elm gave me his Pokegear number before I left. I went to Cherrygrove City and I battled wild Pokemon along Route 29 next. I healed Chikorita at the Cherrygrove City Pokemon Center and got the Running Shoes from an old man as well. I made my way to Mr. Pokemon's house and when I got there, I received the Mystery Egg from Mr. Pokemon. Prof. Oak gave me the Pokedex and then Elm called me and asked me to return to his lab. I headed south to Cherrygrove City afterwards and I saved.

Today, I left the Battle Tower and headed over to the Battle Factory. I continued with my active level 100 streak, which was sitting at 21 wins. The rental Pokemon I had to choose from were all pretty good, so it was hard to pick just three. In the end, I went with a team of Roserade, Zapdos, and Tyranitar and then started battling. I made a couple swaps early on, switching Zapdos for a Froslass and then Froslass for a Gengar.
Had pretty close calls on two of the battles I did. First, I faced a Forretress with Double Team & Leftovers that was pretty tough to take down, but fortunately Gengar killed it with Thunderbolt. Later, I faced a lead Lopunny that took out Gengar and burned Tyranitar with Fire Punch. I barely won that match with Roserade. Aside from those two fights, though, things weren't too hard. I swapped Roserade for a Swampert on the last battle and won it easily. I received some BP and then saved.

So I visited the Cherrygrove City PC next, then I ran over to Route 29 since I had to go back to New Bark Town. I ran into a Passerby Boy and he wanted to battle against me. He sent out his Cyndaquil and I used my Chikorita. Chikorita lost a lot of HP, but I healed him halfway through the battle and I slayed Cyndaquil eventually. I defeated the boy and I arrived at Route 29. I arrived in New Bark Town next and I visited Professor Elm's lab. He told me that one of his Pokemon had been stolen and I was questioned by a police officer. I was eventually unsuspected and I told the officer the name of the boy that I had met in Cherrygrove City. I gave Elm the Mystery Egg afterwards and I saved before heading out again.

Still hunting shiny tyrogue. Tbh Im not going at it full force. I just hop on my DS randomly throughout the day and SR for a hour or two if I can. I have a busy schedule teaching music and taking care of my son. Hopefully I'll see tyrogue shine soon. I was hoping I'd get lucky like I did with my shiny eevee and get it in the first few SRs but were passed that now lol. Right after this Im going to SR for Lugia. I guess thats why Im not too motivated atm...cause Im just going to SR again right after I get tyrogue haha.

I left New Bark Town and sprinted through Route 29 last night and I captured a wild Hoothoot and trained her in the grass. I arrived back in Cherrygrove City again and I healed my two Pokemon at the local Pokemon Center. I then bought Potions at the Poke Mart before leaving town. I dashed north to Route 30 once again and I got the Apricorn Box. I picked a Green Apricorn from a tree as well and then I spotted some trainers on the path. I slayed them all eventually and then I headed northward towards a skinny tree. I couldn't cut it though, so I went around it. I encountered a wild Bellsprout in the grass and I caught that. I entered Dark Cave afterwards and I captured a Dunsparce. I saved before moving on.
