Started making preparations for EV training the Gible and one of the Staryu I hatched. I needed to pass the Pokerus onto both Pokemon, so I did some trainer rematches in order to do that and earn some money for vitamins as well. I had a few battles against regular trainers, but they didn't give much money so I decided to try Gym Leader rematches instead. Since the time I was playing was considered Sunday night, I phoned Blue and battled him several times at the Fighting Dojo in Saffron.
Once I had a lot of money and both Pokemon had the Pokerus, I rode my bike over to Celadon. I headed into the department store and purchased all the vitamins I'll need at the moment. Will EV train the two Pokemon soon.

I returned to the Radio Tower after I healed my Pokemon at the PC and I climbed until I reached the floor that had a locked door. I battled a Team Rocket Executive as I was heading into another floor. I defeated him easily and then I saw Ariana again as I climbed further. I battled against her too and her Arbok was a challenge for me. Once I had defeated her, I gained access to the top of the Radio Tower. I met Archer there and after talking, we battled. He sent out his Houndour first and my Graveler defeated it with Magnitude. Archer used his Koffing afterwards and my Typhlosion defeated it with Flame Wheel. Archer only had his Houndoom left and I used Quagsire's Surf attack to defeat it. Archer lost and I saved.

Alright, so I got around to EV training my Gible last night. I gave it some of the vitamins I purchased earlier, then made it hold a power item. I flew to Cerulean and headed north over the Nugget Bridge. Then, I started Surfing on the little lake right beside the bridge and fought a bunch of Goldeen in order to get Attack EVs. When I was done with that, I switched power items, returned to Johto, and flew over to Blackthorn City. I Surfed on the water behind the Gym and battled some Magikarp until my Speed was maxed out. I then gave Gible one HP Up to get its remaining 6 EVs and then got an Effort Ribbon for it.

Team Rocket left the Radio Tower and the director arrived to thank me and gave me the Silver Wing. I left the Radio Tower afterwards and I had my Pokemon healed at the PC. I bought some items at the Department Store next and I also played the Voltorb Flip at the Game Corner. Once that was done, I headed to the Pokeathlon Dome. I participated in some of the courses and I managed to win a couple of times. I flew back to Mahogany Town and I headed east towards the Ice Path. I picked up a Red Apricorn when I arrived and then I started battling the various trainers in the route. I Surfed into the center of the lake and I encountered the roaming Entei. I couldn't capture it, but I did capture a wild Weepinbell.

Last night, I EV trained my Staryu. I gave it the remaining vitamins I purchased a few days ago and then went back to Kanto again. I flew to Vermilion City and then headed to the route above it. On the water there, I defeated some Psyduck until Staryu's Sp.Attack EVs were full. After that, I returned to Blackthorn and defeated more Magikarp to get Speed EVs. Got my last six EVs using an HP Up I happened to have left in my bag, then got an Effort Ribbon for Staryu.
Then, I used a Water Stone to evolve it into Starmie. Next time, I'll probably train Starmie and my Gible some more.

I continued to battle against various trainers at Route 44 and afterwards, I entered the Ice Path. I slid around on the ice and then I arrived at the area of the cavern that had normal ground. I encountered a wild Swinub and Jynx there and I captured both for my collection. I continued to wander around until I reached the first ice puzzle. I had to slide towards certain rocks in order to get to the other side. Once I had finished, I picked up some stuff and then I headed down to the lower floor of the cavern. I had to push some boulders with Strength, but those helped me solve the next ice puzzle. I picked up some more items and then I slid on more ice. I saved my game shortly before helping a Kimono Girl off the ice.

Found a shiny Doduo on the route west of Viridian! Marks my first HG shiny, second random shiny, and eleventh overall. Not counting chained duplicates or the Red Gyarados.

I talked with a Kimono Girl and I helped get her off the ice. She left the Ice Path and I arrived in Blackthorn City next and I headed to the PC to heal my darlings. I also swapped Pokemon on the PC, then I explored the town some more. I visited the Move Deleter's house and I had him delete one of my Quagsire's HM moves. I then visited the local Poke Mart and I shopped for Ultra Balls there. I left to the Blackthorn City Gym afterwards and I battled a couple of the Gym trainers inside. Their Pokemon were a challenge though, so I left the Gym to heal. I then decided to train my Swinub so that it would evolve into a Piloswine. I withdrew said Swinub from the PC and I wandered south towards Dark Cave to train it there.

I got around to levelling up my Starmie and Gible a bit last night after being too lazy to do it for several days. I flew back over to Saffron City to train at the Fighting Dojo. Once there, I gave Exp. Shares to both Pokemon and then did some Gym Leader rematches for a while. I had enough time to train both Pokemon to around level 26 and evolved Gible into Gabite.
Still need to do a lot more training as I need them to get to at least level 50. Hopefully I'll get around to doing that soon...

After I slayed Clair at the Blackthorn City Gym, I went to the Dragon's Den. I entered the cave and I headed to the lower floor and I saw several trainers down there. I battled against the closest one and then I used Surfed to battle against the others. Once those battles were finished, I Surfed towards a maelstrom that was blocking the way to the Den's shrine. I used Whirlpool to navigate through that and then I arrived at the Dragon Den's shrine. I entered and I talked to the head elder there. He asked me some questions and then he deemed me worthy of possessing the Rising Badge. Clair arrived afterwards and when she heard the elder's decision, she handed over the Rising Badge at long last and I saved.

Did more training tonight. I flew back to the Pokemon League and battled my rival again in the lobby. Then, I entered the next room and started fighting the Elite Four for experience. Once I defeated all of them, I returned to Mt. Silver and climbed to the top for another Red fight.
When I was done battling all those trainers, I phoned a Camper on Route 13 iirc and battled him over and over. My Starmie and Gabite were eventually strong enough to take on that trainer on their own, though they did get screwed over quite a lot by overly common critical hit Sucker Punches and Hydro Pumps. >_>
In the end, I managed to get Gabite to level 40 and Starmie to level 42 when I was done with training for the night. I then finished off my playtime tonight by going to Lavender Town and nicknaming both Pokemon.
29th December 2014, 9:47 PM
I left the Dragon's Den shrine after snatching the Rising Badge and Dragon Pulse TM from Clair and I wandered around some more in order to pick up the Dragon Fang that was in the cave. I then used Surf and I left the Dragon's Den and I healed my darlings at the Blackthorn City Pokemon Center. I swapped Pokemon in the PC as well and then I bought more items at the Poke Mart. With all the Gym badges collected, I decided to head south towards New Bark Town. I walked through Route 45 since that was the most direct path to New Bark Town and I battled tons of trainers along the way. I also captured Pokemon there and then I picked some Apricorns as I arrived at the southern portion of the route and saved.
30th December 2014, 9:18 AM
Finally finished training my Starmie and Gabite. I did some more trainer rematches for a while until Starmie was in the upper 40s. Got bored with trainer battles after that, so I decided to level grind off wild Pokemon. I returned to Mt. Silver and defeated wild Pokemon in the tall grass until Starmie reached level 50. Then, I started focusing on Gabite. I fought more wild Pokemon until it evolved into Garchomp. After that, I had a few more trainer rematches and got Garchomp to level 50.
When that was all done, I still needed a couple of TMs to teach to Garchomp. I headed over to the Goldenrod City and purchased the TMs I needed at the Game Corner. I then tried to earn back some of the coins I spent by playing Voltorb Flip...which didn't go as well as I'd hoped because I made some unlucky moves and was kind of impatient at times.
30th December 2014, 10:25 PM
I arrived at Route 29 and I ran east to New Bark Town. I talked to Professor Elm and he gave me the Master Ball. I also visited my own house afterwards and I talked to my mom there. I withdrew some of the cash that she had been saving up for me, then I talked to Lyra near the shore. She didn't let me pass since I still needed to go to Ecruteak City, so I flew over there. I healed my Pokemon at the Pokemon Center and after stocking up on items at the Poke Mart, I entered the Dance Theater. I had to battle against the Kimono Girls inside of there. It was really tough since I didn't have a chance to heal in between battles, but I eventually slayed all the Eevee evolutions. I saved after I defeated the five Kimono Girls.

Today, I headed over to Fuchsia City and walked over to the Pal Park building. I needed to transfer a dozen Pokemon over from Emerald, so I participated in two catching shows. Once I caught all the Pokemon, I removed the items they were holding and then later sent them off to my White 2.
After that, I didn't really feel like breeding or EV training Pokemon at the moment so I did a couple other things. I had a few trainer rematches in order to earn some more money. Then, I returned to the Game Corner in Celadon to try some more Voltorb Flip. That game was kind of annoying as I got unlucky several times again, but I had some success and managed to earn a few hundred coins before I decided to stop.
5th January 2015, 9:42 PM
I got the Tidal Bell from the Kimono Girls and they left to the Whirl Islands. I healed my team at Ecruteak City's PC afterwards and then I flew to Olivine City. I stopped by Moomoo Farm along the way and I fed Oran Berries to the sick Miltank there. I arrived in Olivine City and purchased some Repels at the local Poke Mart and then I Surfed towards the Whirl Islands. I soon arrived at the right island and I walked down into the lowest part of the Whirl Islands. I arrived at Lugia's chamber and the Kimono Girls performed a dance that awoke the Lugia there. After a quick cut-scene in which Lugia appeared out of the waterfall inside the cavern, I Surfed towards the Lugia and I saved the game before battling against it.
20th January 2015, 1:49 PM
Spent some time at the Battle Factory on HeartGold because I was bored (and had no motivation to start breeding for more Pokemon even though I've been meaning to do that...)
Anyway, I resumed my level 50 challenge and had to select three rental Pokemon to use. I ended up selecting Grovyle, Grumpig, and Omastar since they were the only choices whose movesets weren't *total* garbage. I defeated most of my opponents without breaking a sweat and swapped Pokemon a few times. Grumpig was useful enough to stay with me all the way to the end, but I ultimately ended up replacing the other two with Octillery and Shelgon.
There was one battle that gave me some trouble. I had Octillery leading against a Piloswine or something, which I figured would be an easy kill with a Water move. However, my Octazooka ended up missing three times in a row, which was super annoying and worrisome. I finally hit and OHKOed on the next turn, but then Octillery lost to the next Pokemon and my backups struggled a bit. Fortunately, I was able to win eventually.
After defeating seven trainers, I received BP and then saved and quit.

I battled Lugia at the Whirl Islands and I used Quagsire against it. I managed to get its HP down and then I had my Ampharos use Thunder Wave on Lugia, which successfully paralyzed it. I threw several Ultra Balls at it, but Lugia refused to be caught. I had to keep throwing those Ultra Balls until it finally gave in. Once that was done, I left the Whirl Islands and I wandered back outside. I flew to Cianwood City afterwards and I deposited Lugia in my PC. I healed my Pokemon as well and then I headed west towards Route 47 since I wanted to capture some Pokemon at the Johto Safari Zone. I went through the first gate and then through the second one. I battled some trainers along the way as well and saved.
23rd January 2015, 12:53 AM
So yesterday, I played at the Battle Factory again. I did the level 50 challenge again and selected a team of Gabite, Girafarig, and Sceptile to use. I ended up swapping the Girafarig for a Scyther that nearly swept my team, since that Girafarig just wasn't working for me. I won six battles in a row, facing a LOT of Flying Pokemon along the way.
For my seventh battle, I had to face Thorton, which was kind of an "Oh $*!+" moment for me since I totally forgot that I would have to battle him. Anyway, he had a Shuckle who died to Gabite's Earthquake. Then, Gabite lost to Feraligatr but my Sceptile then finished it off with Leaf Blade.
Thorton's last Pokemon was Nidoking. Sceptile took out a chunk of its HP with Leaf Blade, but was then OHKOed by Poison Jab. I sent out my Scyther after that. I was certain that Scyther would get KOed by Stone Edge or something like that, so I went for my Aerial Ace attack and hoped I'd get the kill. But Nidoking survived with very low health. And then used Counter. >_>
*should have used Swords Dance on that turn*
Next time, maybe I'll continue my 35-win level 100 streak.
23rd January 2015, 2:55 AM
I arrived at the Johto Safari Zone area and then I healed my team at the local PC there. I entered the Safari Zone office afterwards and I talked to Baoba there. He set things up so that I could wander around the Safari Zone and I did just that. I captured a couple of Pokemon there for my Dex and then I left when there wasn't anything else that interested me. I flew to New Bark Town next and I Surfed east towards the Kanto region. Some guy greeted me when I arrived and then I entered Tohjo Falls' cavern. I Surfed around a bit to collect items and then I used Waterfall. I made it to the other side and I exited the cave and I got a TM from an old woman inside a house. I saved shortly after defeating a female trainer.
This afternoon, I challenged the Battle Factory again, continuing my level 100 Singles streak which was sitting at 35 straight wins. I rented a Registeel, Togekiss, and Rapidash and won my first battle easily. On the second battle, though, I lost after Togekiss missed with Heat Wave and Registeel got Burned.
After that loss, I started a fresh streak. I got some pretty good rental Pokemon to choose from and selected Scizor, Pinsir, and Victreebel. I had a pretty easy time winning all my battles and swapped Pokemon several times. After the first battle, I swapped Victreebel for Milotic, who I later traded for a Salamence. I kept Scizor as my lead for several battles, but then swapped it for a Tentacruel. That Tentacruel ended up being very, very useful.
I managed to win against seven trainers in a row. I received some BP and then saved.
After leaving Tohjo Falls, I Surfed to the other side of Route 27. I battled more trainers and then I walked across a bridge and I Surfed again. I used Whirlpool to travel over a maelstrom in the water and then I battled a Bird Keeper. I registered his number in my Pokegear after that battle and then I continued towards Victory Road. I battled more trainers along the way and stopped at a rest house and healed my Pokemon. I picked a Blue Apricorn from a tree outside and then I battled against the last trainers on the route. I entered the gate that led to Victory Road and the guard checked my Gym Badges. I was allowed to proceed afterwards and I entered Victory Road. I captured a wild Onix inside and I saved.
