Went to Cianwood City to retrieve the medicine for Amphy the Ampharos. Challenged Gym Leader Chuck to a battle, which I won pretty easily with my overleveled Scyther. Flew to Olivine City to give the medicine and headed to the gym afterwards. Jasmine was stronger than I anticipated but at the same time my team was weaker than I thought. My other Pokemon were a tad underleveled and I was taken aback at how frail my Quilava was. He couldn't one shot the Magnemite so he was left with 1/4th HP after a thunder bolt. I switched in Golem to handle Steelix and Magnemite, which he both took down easily with Earthquake. Got my badge and flew to Azaela City. I changed the time on my DS to Friday and went to the bottom of Union Cave to capture the Lapras. After a few False Swipe from Scyther, I cought her with a Love Ball. Also modest nature on first try; aww yeahhhh. With that I have my 6th Pokemon.

I battled at the Battle Arcade next with my Raikou, Golem and Magmortar. I started having some trouble while I fought the 4th trainer from the first challenge though. I managed to overcome the hurdle, but things started to get harder. I finally cleared the challenge and I got some BP afterwards. I decided that my team wasn't very good, so I swapped Magmortar for Entei and I re-challenged the Battle Arcade. The trainers from the second set were a lot tougher, but I managed to beat them thanks to Raikou mostly; particularly when I challenged the 7th trainer from the second set, I had a lot of trouble with their Chansey, but Raikou managed to help me out of that. I defeated the 7th trainer and I saved after that.

Arrived at Mahogany town and captured the red Gyarados at the Lake of Rage. Met dragon trainer Lance who pretty much made me do all the work in defeating Team Rocket. Challenged Pryce shortly right after and melted him with my Typhlosion and Ampharos. Took a couple of resets to beat Clair as soon as I got to Blackthorn city. Boy, is she is a crit lord; her Kingdra crit me consecutively on my first two attempts and one shot my Amparos. She never missed a Hydro Pump. Anyways, I beat her easily on my third attempt after a Charge + Discharge combo only because this time she did not crit me. Now I'm off to do her little errand at the Dragon's Den.
The horror of catching a Ho-Oh with merely four Ultra Balls. I swear I must have restarted fifteen times. Man, I was so juiced when I finally caught it. I don't think I have had as much trouble catching something as I had catching that cheeky Ho-Oh.

I started a new game on SoulSilver. I quickly left my room and wandered downstairs and my mother talked to me and gave me the Pokegear. I was finally allowed to go outside and I talked to NPCs after seeing Lyra. I then entered Professor Elm's lab and he asked me if I could go to Mr. Pokemon's house to obtain something for him. I agreed and I was allowed to have a Pokemon to use on my journey. I chose Cyndaquil as my Starter and then I headed out to Mr. Pokemon's house. I got Elm's number as I headed out to Route 29, then I started to walk through the tall grass. I battled some wild Hoothoot to make Cyndaquil a little stronger, then I arrived in Cherrygrove City and got a tour of the town from an elderly man.
I just restarted HG a few days ago. I'm planning to rotate through a bunch of Pokemon to keep my team somewhat underlevelled to make the game more of a challenge. Anyway, I just beat Team Rocket at the Slowpoke Well and stopped them from cutting off SlowpokeTails. Even with my somewhat underlevelled team, Proton was still a pushover. I'm about to take on the Gym Leader of Azalea Town, Bugsy. We'll see how much of a pushover he is with his Scyther and all.
