Hmmm well this challenge may not be as easy as I had imagined. I couldn't believe my luck when I found a Skitty (Tiger) in route 116, and Rusturf Tunnel gave me Audi the Whismur. Tiger didn't last long, as I miscalculated damage and didn't realize she wouldn't survive an Uproar CH. Guess what happened?Not wanting to take any chances, I evolved Kipz into Marshtomp before taking on Roxanne, who ended up being quite easy.
Dewford was much tamer than I expected. Granite Cave gave me Hiro the Makuhita, and I fished up a Magikarp(Gari). Brawly was easier than expected, by stun sporing/leech seeding Makuhita with Myco.
Slateport, on the other hand, was a rude awakening. While fighting a sailor on the beach, I brought in Audi to finish off a weakened Machop. His pound missed, however, and the Karate Chop counter was an OHKO. My grief wasn't over, however, as Ashe would succumb to May's Grovyle.This is my fault, however, as both pokemon were in the red and Grovyle was paralyzed, so I attacked forgetting that she had quick attack. This was a major wrench in my plan, as she was to be my main source of pokeballs later in the game. Fortune would smile on me later, though, as Ashe Jr., another Zigzagoon, would be found on route . She, added with Clarence the Oddish from route 117, would be added to my roster to form a full, 6-man team. I'm currently in Mauville, raising my team for Wattson.

The no items clause isn't really giving me problems, but I've reached a new dilemma in the form of TM's. I've already decided not to use HM's not required, such as flash, and since they aren't necessary, I won't use them.
