    You said you traded over an Old Amber right? Why not revive it before battling her? Its not weak to Grass and has STAB Wing Attack to KO Roserade.

    You get the Bike after defeating Gardenia, but you have access to revive Fossils in Oreburgh City.

    On my Bug Platinum, I just beat Gardenia. After making it through Eterna Forest, I met my Rival, he dragged me to the statue. Cyrus was there, blah blah blah. With my team at level 20, I went to the Gym. Beat the trainers, and Butterfree challenged Gardenia. Took down the first two no problems, except for Leech Seed. Stole Roserades Sitrus Berry, and wore it down with Gust. Just about to finish it off, and I'm paralyzed, and Leech Seed saps my HP. Tossed out Spinarak because it resists Grass and Poison, and finished it off with Poison Jab. It leveled up to level 22, and evolved! Finally, my team are all evolved. Saved afterwards.

    Butterfree level 21
    Ledian level 20
    Ariados level 22
    Beautifly level 20
    Dustox level 20
    Kricketune level 20

    I'm really enjoying this team, much more than I thought. Its been a challenge with all the Hikers around, and Cycling Road will be tough with all the Staravia's and Ponyta's.

    Update for my Platinum normal challenge.

    After defeating Roroak, I left Orenburgh to go to Florama Town. Along the way, i trained against several trainers and level up my Pokemon feverishly. I beat Team Galactic at the Windworks and moved on through the forest and to the next town. I beat Gardenia using mostly my newly evolved Staravia. She is quite the fighter as wing attack Koed all of Gardenia's pokemon. I then moved forward, progressing through the story until i was at Fantina. I also added a new Pokemon along the way in Togepi. Fantina was easily taken down by Bibarel's rollout. I am currently level grinding with the VS. seeker outside of Mt. Corenet.

    My team:

    Bibarel "Chomper" lvl. 32
    Hyper Fang
    Rollout
    Water Gun
    Defense Curl

    Staravia "Apache" lvl. 30
    Ariel Ace
    Quick Attack
    Endeavor
    Double Team

    Togepi "Spike' lvl. 19
    Metronome
    Encore
    Sweet Kiss
    Growl

    BTW, I am thinking about starting a mono rock on my Diamond. If anyone would trade me something to start with (ie. Larvitar, Kabuto, Cranidos) it would be greatly appreciated.

    Everyone seems to be doing a monotype Normal, i just traded over my baby Porygon-Z (Trading is fun) to HG (Reset) and caught my three next members: Sentret, Jigglypuff and Hoothoot.

    In Platinum, everything is running smooth, Aerodactyl destroyed Fantina and then destroyed Maylene, Wake is the next big annoying person, and then it's pretty smooth until Bertha.

    I restarted SoulSilver today, chose the guy and named myself Matthew. Chose Totodile, it was female, and I named it Jesselina. I went to see Mr. Pokemon, and got the Egg and a Pokedex. Elm called, and I beat my Rival, named him Paul. Made it back to the lab, avoided a felony charge, and Lyra taught me how to catch a pokemon. Caught some more, and traded for Eggs. Hatched them, and currently training them.

    Sentret level 10
    Cleffa level 10
    Igglybuff level 8
    Aipom level 5
    Slakoth level 5
    Bidoof level 5

    Update on my Normal Mono
    -Beat the Sprout Tower
    -Beat Falkner with Slakoth
    -Beat TR in Slowpoke Well

    -Beat Bugsy with Bibarel
    -Made it through Ilex Forest

    Hey guys! I'm so glad I found such a thread, 'cause recently I started a Water-type challenge in HeartGold. Actually I felt kinda bad, because there is SUCH a variety of water pokemon in HG... BUT, I didn't train just 6 pokemon, I trained around ten..

    So, I started with Totodile, then caught Wooper, and thanks to the Old Rod I added Poliwag, Goldeen, Magikarp and Tentacool. In Slowpoke Well I caught a Slowpoke, and then in Goldenrod a Krabby. I trained and evolved all of these.

    Actually that's where I stopped training more water pokemon -except for Seel and Chinchou which I caught later-, because it was getting too slow... Anyway, eventually I beat the Elite 4 with Feraligatr, Quagsire, Slowbro, Poliwrath, Lanturn and of course my precious Gyarados!

    At first I felt proud of my accomplishment, but then I realised a water challenge was the easiest one, since water is the type with the largest variety and combination of types...

    Anyway, I am now going to take my main pokemon to lvl 50 and then train further my Dewgong, Tentacruel, Lapras, Psyduck etc. I also plan to get more water types such as Seadra or Vaporeon

    Ground type poses a large challenge, weak to three gym leaders.

    I think I'll start a Monotype on my Platinum as soon as I'm done my current project (A team of all the most common/annoying pokemon, meaning Geodude, Tentacool, Zubat, Wingull, Machop, and Bidoof, almost done)
    I'm thinking either poison (Crobat, Roserade, Drapion, Toxicroak, Tentacruel, Muk) or Fighting (Infernape, Gallade, Toxicroak, Lucario, Heracross, Polliwrath)
    Black and White 2 Return to Familiar Lands, except for the giant glacier.

    I really wish they'd change the type of hidden power on the party pokemon page because the normal type icon looks boring. My special sweepers all have stupid looking Attack tabs on their information.

    Poke-Lord: Toxicroak is a good option.
    Supermariofan64: I'm currently doing a monotype rock in platinum, but i honestly think normal is a good option for it.

    I've almost finished my challenge (Wanted Puptiar to evolve before the League, plus getting them all the correct movesets.) Cynthia's Pokes are about the same level as mine, so it could be tough.

    Tyranitar: Lvl 63 (Sand Stream)

    Golem: Lvl 62 (Rock Head)
    Earthquake/Stone Edge/Thunderpunch/Double Edge

    Aerodactyl: Lvl 63 (Pressure)
    Aerial Ace/Stone Edge/Dragon Claw/Roost

    Bastiodon: Lvl 60 (Sturdy)
    Iron Head/Stone Edge/Roar/Stealth Rock

    Probopass: Lvl 61 (Magnet Pull)
    Stone Edge/Thunder Wave/Iron Head/Ice Punch

    Normal would be pretty interesting, Thanks! I'll post a log of my adventures when I start (but first, I have to capture Shaymin from the wifi event long ago...)
