    Today, I left team Galactic's HQ and headed back to the Veilstone Pokemon Center, where I healed and used the PC. Instead of continuing with the Team Galactic plot, though, I decided to go back to some previous places and use Rock Climb. I started by going to the easily accessible Rock Climb locations in the southern part of Sinnoh. That helped me find some items as well as a couple of trainers on Routes 208 and 210.

    Then, I flew to Snowpoint and trekked back down to Route 216. Using Rock Climb there brought me to an area with several more trainers to fight. After defeating using mainly Yanmega & Starmie, I returned to the little cabin on the route to heal.
    Next time, I'll continue the Galactic plot by heading to Mt. Coronet.

    - I finished crossing Route 227 after having talked with Buck on the volcanic path that led to Stark Mountain and next I defeated wild Pokemon before going into the cave itself.
    - Once in Stark Mountain's cave, I saw my rival and walked through the first section and pushed rocks and used Rock Smash as well. In the bigger section, I teamed up with Buck.
    - Buck and I rushed through the biggest cave and we defeated pairs of wild Pokemon and trainers. It took ages tho ha ha cuz the cavern we were exploring seemed like it was infinite.

    After checking my party and items, I headed into Mt. Coronet through the Oreburgh entrance. On the first floor, I Surfed across a small pond and then used Rock Climb to access the upper floors. I then spent some time looking around the cave portion of the 2nd and 3rd floors, which didn't seem to take as long as I'd remembered.

    Next, I found my way back outside, reaching the snowy part of the mountain. Now, exploring this part seemed to take longer that I thought it would. There were more Galactic Grunts to fight than I remembered from last time, though fortunately they weren't too difficult. I defeated most of them using Starmie and Yanmega.

    Eventually, I made it to the Spear Pillar, where I saved.

    Today in SoulSilver, I called both Schoolkid Chad and Lt. Surge on my Pokégear prior to setting out on my Apricorn harvest so I would have two battles to fight, since I haven't played in a couple of weeks. Halfway through, however, Fisherman Ralph called me for a battle, making mine three battles in a row. Once I collected the Ball Capsule Seals, I decided to take on Chad first, as he was just up on Route 38. I kept Penticton, my Pidgeot, out in front so I could double my prize money with her Luck Incense, soon switching out for my Umbreon Unity and my Ninetales Neepawa.

    Next, I flew to Violet City and made my way down to the fishing lake on Route 32 to take Ralph on. For some weird reason, his Qwilfish kept using Destiny Bond on my Ampharos Amherst, which meant I had to keep switching in and out to avoid fainting at the end of my turn. A single Psychic from La Malbaie, my Starmie, took her down thanks to Poison being weak to Psychic.

    Getting around to Lt. Surge, I mostly used Neepawa since my Meganium, Ottawa, was a little bit overlevelled. His Electivire seemed to pack Earthquake, which came as a bit of a nasty surprise since Earthquake does double damage if it hits someone using Dig. Neepawa hung on, however, and she breezed through the rest of Lt. Surge's team.

    After the battle, I collected a parcel of Yache Berries from the PokéMart, and flew to Mt. Silver to train up Penticton. Her Twister twice caused an Ursaring to flinch, as did a Ponyta. Is she just really lucky or what?

    Had to do several fights at the Spear Pillar. First, I fought a pair of Galactic Grunts, who weren't that difficult thanks to my Medicham & Torterra.

    After that, my rival and I fought Mars and Jupiter together. My rival's Munchlax didn't do anything during the battle aside from use Stockpile and miss with Screech a lot. So, I had to do the fighting on my own. Fortunately, Medicham was able to handle all the Pokemon on its own. I had it KO all of Jupiter's Pokemon first, then focused on Mars's team.

    Next up was the Cyrus fight. I still had Medicham in front, so I used it to defeat Honchkrow. After that, I switched to Magnezone and used it to defeat all of Cyrus's remaining Pokemon. That wasn't too bad, except for when Crobat flinched me several times in a row.

    Finally, I battled Dialga. I didn't get a chance to save before the battle, though, since I didn't realize the fight would start automatically if I got too close...so since I didn't want to risk fainting it, I just tossed a Master Ball at it lol.

    With all of that complete, I spoke with Dawn & Prof. Rowan before picking up the Adamant Orb. Then, since I didn't have my Fly slave with me, I went back into the cave and used an Escape Rope...which just took me to that isolated Route 207 entrance that only leads to a Rock Climb-only item. So, I had to go back into the cave and find my way out. That didn't take too long, fortunately, but it was a little annoying.

    I then made it back into Hearthome City and saved.

    Today in SoulSilver, I went out with my Umbreon, Unity, around Johto on our daily Apricorn harvest and Ball Capsule collection. Along the way, I stopped over at the PokéMart in Blackthorn City to buy a couple dozen of Max Repels. Afterwards, I flew to Mt. Silver to train Unity up to Level 90, thus joining in his fellow nonagenarians. (It's a fancy Latin word for someone in their 90s... But levels don't really correspond to age, although I used to think they do. ;P)

    This week, I've been catching Pokemon on HGSS in Apricorn balls again.

    A few days ago, I caught a dozen such Pokemon on HeartGold. I started by going to the Burned Tower, where I caught a Magmar. I happened to encounter a Koffing there, too, so I caught it as well. And then, I saw that the Hoenn Sound was playing on the radio, so I was able to get Spinda and Zigzagoon as well.

    Next, I went to Rock Tunnel. After quite a few wild encounters, I found a Kangaskhan and caught it in a Love Ball IIRC. I've been wanting to catch a Kangaskhan in an Apricorn ball for a while now, but I had trouble finding one during my previous trips to Rock Tunnel. So happy I finally got one!
    Also, while in Rock Tunnel I used Rock Climb and found a few items I'd never picked up before (e.g. the Oval Stone). That was a little strange since I don't know how I could've missed those items until now...

    In or around the Viridian Forest, I used Headbutt and caught Ariados & Seedot. After that, I returned to Johto and caught several more Pokemon, including Miltank.


    I caught some Pokemon on my SoulSilver, too. A day or two ago, I gave some Apricorns to Kurt. Today, I picked up some Moon Balls and used them to catch a Meowth and a Grimer. Then, I went to the Safari Zone to see what I could find there. I managed to catch several Pokemon, including Geodude and Sentret.

    All the Pokemon I caught are now on my Sun.

    Today in SoulSilver, I didn't do much apart from harvest Apricorns around Johto with my Starmie La Malbaie and collect some Ball Capsule Seals, all of which were variations of the Heart Seal. I missed the very small window of opportunity in the morning to battle Lt. Surge, so I have to wait until next Friday morning to battle him. It's not much of a loss though, since my team are now in their 90s, and they can pretty much one-shot everything at this point.

    On Diamond, I flew back to Pastoria City. From there, I made my way over to the now accessible Route 222. I explored the route's upper path first, where I fought a few trainers and picked some berries. Before I covered the lower path, though, I went into Sunyshore City since I needed to use the PC and heal my team. I spoke with Flint as soon as I entered Sunyshore, but I ignored the other NPCs and just went straight to the Pokemon Center. Once I was done there, I returned to R. 222 and quickly fought the trainers on the beach and visited the two houses.
    Next time, I'll look around the rest of Sunyshore and challenge the Gym.


    I've also spent more time on HGSS recently, too. I started listening to my Pokegear's radio for information about swarms, since I wanted to catch some more Pokemon in Apricorn Balls. I was hoping to get a Clamperl swarm since I really wanted to raise a Love Ball Gorebyss on my Sun, but I wasn't able to get one (I did get a Dream Ball Clamperl on the GTS in Sun, so that made up for it). I did manage to catch quite a few other Pokemon via swarms on HeartGold, though, including Ralts, Swablu, Whiscash, Relicanth, and Buneary. I checked the swarms on my SoulSilver several times, too, and caught a Qwilfish.

    Yesterday, I also caught a few regular wild Pokemon in Apricorn Balls on HG: I caught the Union Cave Lapras in a Moon Ball, Slowpoke in a Love Ball, and an Aipom in a Level Ball IIRC while I was Headbutting trees.
    Then, I transferred all the Apricorn Pokemon I caught on HG recently & my SS Qwilfish all the way up to Sun.

    Today in SoulSilver, I got a triple whammy of battles, starting with Pryce and Janine. While I was in the middle of harvesting Apricorns, I got a call from Picnicker Liz, who said she wanted to have a battle with me. I decided to fight her first so I could get her out of the way, using and . Then I flew across to Victory Road to pick up one last Apricorn before flying onwards to Saffron City to meet up with Pryce and Janine. I battled Pryce first with and , melting the ice down. Janine was up next, and I used , , and to deal the final blow. I collected a parcel of Tanga Berries from the mailman at the PokéMart, then flew home to heal my team.

    Did some things around Sunyshore on Diamond. First, I took a tour around the city and talked to some NPCs. I bought a few seals at the market just for fun and met Jasmine on the beach. Once that was done, I headed into the lighthouse and took the elevator to the top. There, I spoke with Volkner and got him to return to the Gym.

    Next, I went over to the Gym myself. I defeated most of the regular trainers using my Drapion (got it to learn Crunch!), but I battled the last two or so with Yanmega (got it to learn Air Slash!). I didn't plan to use Drapion or Yanmega during the Gym battle, so I didn't bother going back to the Pokemon Center to heal. Instead, I switched Torterra to the front of my party and fought Volkner. Torterra OHKOed three of his Pokemon with Earthquake or Seed Bomb, though Ambipom annoyingly survived an EQ. I just Leech Seeded it during the healing turn, then KOed with EQ on the next.

    So, I've now obtained all of the Sinnoh Gym Badges. Guess I'll start heading to the Pokemon League next!

    Just began a new game in Platinum and was doing some grinding of my Chimchar on the first route, only to run into a shiny Bidoof!

    Unfortunately, I hadn't actually got to the part of the game where you actually get pokeballs.


    Fuuuuuu-----!!!!!

    Left the Sunyshore Gym and returned to the Pokemon Center to heal. Once that was done, I went over to the local Poke Mart and stocked up on some healing items that'll be helpful for Victory Road and the Elite Four. I then went to the beach and received the Waterfall HM from Jasmine.

    Next, I used Surf and started heading up Route 223. It took me a while to fully explore that route, mostly because there were so many trainers to fight. The training was good for my team, though, and allowed me to get everyone to level 50+.
    Eventually, I reached the Pokemon League island. I climbed the waterfall and then saved in the Pokemon Center by Victory Road.


    I also spent some time on HeartGold. Once the day changed to Thursday, I set my radio to the Sinnoh Sound and went around Johto. I was able to catch every Sinnoh Sound Pokemon in an Apricorn Ball, excluding Bidoof since I'd already caught and transferred one a while ago. I collected some more Apricorns, too.

    I checked my daily swarm on HG, too, and finally got Clamperl! So, I went over to Kanto and caught one in a Love Ball just like I'd wanted.
