    I left MooMoo Farm after feeding the sick Miltank and I picked a Green Apricorn outside. I headed south on Route 39 and I battled a few trainers and explored the tall grass and battled more wild Pokemon. I then arrived in Olivine City and as I walked towards the Olivine Gym, I spotted my rival who told me that the Gym Leader was out. I headed over to the Pokemon Center to heal my team, then I went to the Poke Mart and bought items. I visited some houses around the city and I got the Good Rod from a Fishing Guru in one of the houses. I fished around the water by the harbor and I caught a wild Krabby. I didn't add it to my team though. I just wandered over to the Glitter Lighthouse to find Jasmine.

    Hi, I'm planning on doing a SoulSilver Poison type challenge for my first monotype challenge. After much consideration (i thought of doing a Emerald Dark or Grass type or a SS Bug type but I decided on this) i thought Poison type for SS would be best due to the fact that they are relatively abundant in SS and it allows me to appreciate my new found love for the type.

    Planned team

    1. Gengar
    2. Crobat
    3. Victreebel
    4. Tentacruel
    5. Arbok(?)
    6. Unsure

    If someone could recommend a sixth pokemon and, if possible, a better choice than arbok (never used it so i don't know how powerful it is)

    If you are able to trade, take the Swalot of course :P
    Elsewise I guess Venomoth would be a good addition
    The Shiny Swalot is back, feel free to PM me!

    I climbed the Glitter Lighthouse and I battled some trainers as I rose higher towards the summit of the building. I had to jump out of the side at one point and I arrived at Gym Leader Jasmine's location eventually. I spoke to her and she told me about the sick Ampharos and how she didn't want to leave it to find medicine. Instead I was given the task of obtaining the SecretPotion for the Ampharos, so I headed down the elevator and I prepared to leave Olivine City after stocking up on items. I headed west towards Route 40 and I walked along the coast. I Surfed and moved along the water and I battled some Swimmers and wild Tentacool along the way. I headed south towards the Whirl Islands and battled more trainers.

    As I approached Route 41 and the Whirl Islands, I battled against more wild Pokemon and some Swimmers. I soon arrived at the sandy shore of Cianwood City and I healed my Pokemon at the local Pokemon Center upon arrival. I then visited the local pharmacy and I picked up the SecretPotion key item that Jasmine's sick Ampharos needed. I explored some more houses around Cianwood City, then I wandered north and spotted Suicune sitting alone by some rocks. I approached it, but it fled and Eusine showed up again. I battled him and I had a hard time against his Haunter and Electrode, but I defeated him eventually and healed my Pokemon again. I then returned to Route 41 to do some extra training there.

    Update 1

    Beaten the first two gyms and now in goldenrod. early levels were a pain due to very weak moves but now each team member have decent moves.

    Falkner was the toughest challenge so far. His pidgey lost quite easily to Martin the Beedrill, but Pidgeotto took out Martin, Vinnie and Spooks before losing to Zusan the Zubat.

    Bugsy was easier. Scyther provided a somewhat difficult challenge, almost fainting new team member Trevor the Tentacool. Spooks, using Hypnosis and Curse, managed too take his health down to orange, before he woke up and used u-turn, hurting spooks quiet badly. He switched to Kakuna and i switched to Venom, the new ekans, who took out the entire team from there by spamming bite.

    Current Team


    Venom the Ekans
    Level: 16
    Moveset: Wrap, Glare, Poison Sting, Bite


    Zusan the Zubat
    Level: 16
    Moveset: Leech Life, Supersonic, Astonish, Bite


    Martin the Beedrill
    Level: 15
    Moveset: Poison Sting, Focus Energy, Harden, Cut


    Vinnie the Bellsrpout
    Level:16
    Moveset: Vine Whip, Growth, Posionpowder, Sleep Powder


    Trevor the Tentacool
    Level: 14
    Moveset: Poison Sting, Supersonic, Constrict, Acid.


    Spooks the Gastly
    Level: 15

    After Surfing around Route 41 and the Whirl Islands, I headed back to Cianwood City in order to finally challenge the Gym trainers within the Cianwood City Gym. I walked around the shallow water and since I couldn't challenge Chuck yet given that he was sitting under a waterfall, I walked over to battle the Gym trainers. I defeated their Fighting-type Pokemon easily with Gyarados and Slowpoke mostly, then I pressed a button and I finally got to challenge Gym Leader Chuck. I used Feraligatr against his Primeape and I defeated it with Surf. I then switched over to Slowpoke to battle Chuck's Poliwrath and I defeated it with a couple of Confusion attack which were super effective. I then won the Storm Badge and saved.

    A suggestion for some people: ground type in diamond.
    Starter turtwig for tortera (grass/ground)
    And you can catch 2 other ground types before the first gym.
    (After the 6 gym you can also catch gible)

    I'm sorry for my bad english.

    After winning the Storm Badge, I got the Fly HM from Chuck's wife and I Surfed back to Olivine. I headed back up the Olivine Lighthouse and I took the time to re-battle one of the trainers there. I then set off for the summit so that I could give the SecretPotion to Jasmine. I finally arrived at the top of the lighthouse and after handing Jasmine the potion, she healed Ampharos. With that settled, she returned to the Olivine City Gym and I followed after her. I got out of the lighthouse and I healed my Pokemon at the PC and I also purchased several items at the Mart. I got inside of the Olivine City Gym after training a little bit at the route north of the city and I saved before challenging Jasmine for the Mineral Badge.

    After sending my Pokes off my HG cartridge to my Black 2 game, I want to do a mono-type challenge. I've done water and psychic in the Gen 1 games, so I don't want to do either of those. Suggestions?

    So I challenged Gym Leader Jasmine at her Gym. She sent out her first Magnemite and I used my Quagsire against it. I had it use a Magnitude attack and that defeated Jasmine's Magnemite. Jasmine sent out her Steelix afterwards and I used my Feraligatr against it. I had Feraligatr use Water Gun and that damaged Steelix, but it wasn't enough to defeat it. I had to endure Steelix's next attack, but I defeated it with a second Water Gun attack afterwards . Only Jasmine's second Magnemite remained for me to deal with and my Quagsire took care of it with another Magnitude attack. I defeated Jasmine at long last and I won the Mineral Badge and the Iron Tail TM from her. I left the Olivine City Gym after that and saved.

    Hello there if anybodys still here, I'm new to the forums but this section isn't dead is it?

    Never did a monotype before but I'm thinking of trying one on platinum, probably fighting since Infernape is pretty beast.

    Okay so I started mono fighting on platinum, obviously picked Chimchar and nicknamed him Sherlock but I'm quite ahead for a first post so I'll skim along the big points. I battled Barry made my way to the jubilife city,got my watch, talked to looker and headed through the caves towards Oreburgh City. I grinded a fair bit and Sherlock evolved into Monferno! I also caught a Machop and named it Nigel though unfortunately I have no access to another DS to evolve him into his last evolution later on.

    Anyway I then grinded Nigel for a bit and challenged Roark the Rock type gym leader. It was too easy, Nigels Low Kick literally swept the whole gym and I got my badge XD I then headed back to Jubilife City and ventured north for Floaroma Town. Ran into some more of those team Galactic guys in the Windmill and put them in their place, then headed north east towards Eterna City, though I'm currently in Eterna Forest.

    Current Pokemon:
    Sherlock (Monferno): Level 21
    Nigel (Machop): Level 22

    Okay so that was my first time doing anything like that so sorry about my terrible writing :P I regret choosing fighting a little bit because the effort of trying to find a Heracross.

    So I dashed out of the Olivine City Gym next and I headed out to the Pokemon Center and I healed my darlings. I did some quick shopping at the Poke Mart as well next and then I sashayed back to Route 39. I stopped by MooMoo Farm first though and fed the sick Miltank Oran Berries and it finally got cured. I soon made it back to Ecruteak City and I pranced east to Route 42's gatehouse. I arrived close to Mt. Mortar and I Surfed across a lake and saw Suicune lurking by Apricorn trees. I walked to it, but it fled once it saw me. Eusine the Suicune stalker arrived afterwards and then I picked some Apricorns. I Surfed across another lake next and I battled trainers in the area outside Mt. Mortar before saving my game.

    So to take a break from Nuzlocking (and because I wanted to do something I hadn't done in a while) I started a Flying Monotype run on HeartGold.

    I'm quite a distance in, actually- I just hit Blackthorn, and I have the final member of my team now. The run's been going pretty well so far, save for some difficulties with Jasmine- I didn't think to teach Fire Blast to Aquila, so half my team was obliterated by her Magnimites.

    I'll take on Claire at level 40 or so.

    Team:
    Bellatrix, level 37
    Aquila, level 38
    Pyxis, level 37
    Andromeda, level 37
    Corvus, level 37
    Rigel, level 35

    Friend Safari: Sunkern, Sawsbuck, Maractus
