    So I started my game and caught a Kricketot. My game froze and now my 3DS is broken so I moved the game to my DSLite and caught a second Kricketot, named Dabs. She was evolved and level 16 when I got to Oreburgh. We took on the Gym trainers and when we challenged Roark she had gotten to level 17. We easily beat Roark with a couple Rock Smashes and made our way to Floaroma. Currently saved in front of Valley Windworks.

    I'm updating! Gardenia was VERY easy with bug and flying attacks. I set up some Honey trees and got a Combee, and it WAS female, but only level 9. I grinded up this Combee on the routes and battled my rival in Hearthome City, after I talked to my mom in the Contest Hall. I moved on to Solaceon and evolved Nessie (the Combee). Ready to grind a bit more to beat Veilstone City's Gym without any problems.

    As I was leaving Sunyshore, I obtained the Waterfall HM from Jasmine. I taught it to Bibarel and then began surfing towards the Pokemon League. Along the way, I did quite a bit of training and got half my team to level 50. Eventually, I reached the island where the league is.

    After visiting the Pokemon Centre, I went into Victory Road. I think this was my most frustrating, annoying time ever going through that place. I tried training my Blissey there, but didn't have much luck because Blissey was pretty much OHKOed by any physical attack. I know Blissey's Defense is pathetic, but I've never had one that pathetic before. As I got further in the cave, my other Pokemon started to really suck at taking hits and dealing damage too. I am not looking forward to training for the Elite Four. -_-

    After an eternity in Victory Road, I finally reached the exit. I left and went to heal in the Pokemon League building. Next, I have super fun level grinding to do.

    Since last time I've done quite a bit. I sweeped Maylene and helped Lucas get back his Pokedex. I moved on to Pastoria City and beat Crasher Wake. Cleared away the Psyduck and moved on to Celestic Town. Finished with Cynthia's grandmother and my sister caught a Pinsir for me to use. Ready to grind the Pinsir and the rest of my team to level 45

    At the Pokemon Centre in the Pokemon League, I battled my rival. I started the battle with Clefable since I wanted to train it. Unfortunately, Clefable was slower than the first two Pokemon my rival used, Staraptor and Heracross, and had great difficulty taking them down. I had to use Charm several times before Clefable was able to survive Close Combats well enough to beat them. I then switched to my Staraptor who defeated Snorlax, Infernape, and Roserade. Lastly, my Lopunny defeated Floatzel. Overall, my rival was not that hard, but it did feel like my Pokemon were a little weak.

    After that, I began grinding for the Elite Four. I am planning to train everyone to at least level 55. So far, I have trained Clefable to that level, and am currently training Lopunny.

    Why not try a Poison or Normal mono? People often deem those two types as being the worst, so it should provide you with a bit of a challenge. And there's quite a bit of variety within the types too.

    Sounds nice I think I'll take the Poison monotype team ^^

    Care to give me a starter?

    Well, I suppose you could use Turtwig until you get to the point where you can catch Budew. That should be fairly early in the game if I remember correctly. So Budew will be your first Poison type. (: (Unless you get to Zubat first? But I don't think you do.)

    ^^ You can get Zubat at the same time as Budew. Personally, I'd use something different, as everyone uses Crobat in their runthroughs. Breed a Stunky or something, as you daid you could breed.

    I'm in such a weird walkthrough indeed. I chose a Grass Monotype in HeartGold (so trust me, it's H.A.R.D.) and now I'm regretting not to have chosen a Psychic Monotype as I did in Gold. Chances are for me to beat the game or to leave this stuff and to start a normal playthrough.

    Anywho, this is my team:

    Bayleef lvl 30
    Vileplume lvl 24
    Victreebel lvl 30
    Jumpluff lvl 30

    I recently beat Whitney.

    Player's Name: Zafyron, White Friend Code: 1721 - 6526 - 2990. If you want to trade, just tell me!

    I had planned on training my entire team to level 55, but it was taking too long...in the end, I ended up going to the Pokemon League with only Clefable at that level, and my other Pokemon at 51-53.

    I battled Aaron first, who wasn't much of a challenge. My Staraptor made most of the battle very easy. I also taught Stealth Rock to Blissey, which destroyed Beautifly and Vespiquen. Drapion was the most difficult of his Pokemon, but it still wasn't that difficult.

    Next was Bertha, who was more difficult. Quagsire, Golem, and Sudowoodo weren't too bad. Hippowdon was a little frustrating due to its very high Attack stat, which resulted in at least one of my Pokemon being KOed. Whiscash was the most annoying Pokemon on Bertha's team, though. My Clefable's Magical Leaf did not OHKO it, and then Clefable fainted. I then sent out either Girafarig or Lopunny, who took quite a while to defeat Whiscash due to Full Restores and the fact that their attacks didn't do much damage.

    Flint was much easier. Driftblim took the longest to take down, but it wasn't too threatening as all it did was spam Double Team and all my attacks managed to hit it.

    Lucian was the hardest out of the members of the Elite Four. Mr. Mime was annoying with Reflect and Light Screen, and actually did quite a lot of damage to Blissey. Alakazam's Focus Blast hit every time for some reason. And Bronzong just wouldn't die because the only move I had that was super effective against it was Blissey's Flamethrower, and Blissey sucks at attacking.

    Eventually, I began my battle with Cynthia. This battle was definitely 1000x more difficult than any of the battles against the Elite Four. She started out with Spiritomb and I used Lopunny. I used Captivate, which is a move I taught Lopunny specifically for this battle so that I could set upanother Pokemon without it dieing from Spiritomb's moves too easily. Once Spiritomb's Sp. Attack was lowered, I switched to Bibarel. I used Taunt to prevent Embargo from working, then began using some X items. I have never used these items in battle before, but I bought some today because I felt that my teamwouldn'twin without them.

    It was really annoying getting Bibarel set up, since I had to keep reusing Taunt and make sure that Bibarel's HP was high. Bibarel died once from a critical hit, but luckily it was before I used that many X items so I didn't have to reset. Finally, I got Bibarel set up enough to attempt a Sweep. By this time, Spiritomb had struggled itself down to low HP so it was an easy kill. Bibarel then managed to OHKO Roserade and Lucario. When Garchomp came out, Bibarel was not able to OHKO it and couldn't survive its attack. I sent out Clefable, who was able to survive a Giga Impact and KO with Ice Beam.

    Cynthia used Gastrodon next. I decided to use more of my X items on Clefable. I was worried about Gastrodon getting a critical hit with Stone Edge or lowering my accuracy a lot with Muddy Water, but fortunately a critical hit from Stone Edge did not do much damage and I only had my accuracy lowered a couple of times, which the X Accuracy fixed. I killed Gastrodon with Magical Leaf, then Milotic came out. It was an easy 2HKO with Thunderbolt.

    After that, I was entered into the Hall of Fame and watched the credits. So now, I'm finally done my Normal monotype challenge on Diamond. It was an interesting experience, but if I ever do a monotype again I'm going to use a more easier type like Water.

    indeed i can breed
    so I'll start off with a stunky then ^^
    well i guess that means i'll pick piplup so my rival gets the grass type. that should make things easier.
    well good luck to me

    I've completed every monotype challenge on Heartgold. Therefore I don't know which one to do next. Any suggestions?
