    - Okay so with Sabrina now defeated, I decided to go beat Team Rocket at the Silph Co. building, which they had completely taken over. I quickly went from floor to floor in the offices. :]
    - I soon discovered that I needed a key to open up some sections of the building, s I defeated several Team Rocket grunts and searched for it. I was finally able to get my hands on the key.
    - I unlocked doors and found new pathways where employees were hiding and I got a few items as well, then I visited the third floor and teleported to a new section and saw my rival again.

    Yesterday, I went through the Rocket Hideout. I battled a couple of Rockets on the first floor, then headed downstairs to the floors with the spin tile mazes. Got through those just fine and obtained the Lift Key soon after. Eventually, I made it to Giovanni's room and battled him. I had my Ivysaur in the lead, which was fortunate since it made taking down Onix and Rhyhorn really easy. I kept Ivysaur in against Kangaskhan, too, which was a more difficult match-up for me (had to use a potion or two), but Ivysaur won in the end.

    After defeating Giovanni, I picked up the Silph Scope and then made my way out. Back at the department store, I sold quite a few of the items I'd found in the hideout since my bag was getting full, then stocked up on a few things I was running low on, like repels. Finally, I then headed back to Lavender Town and entered Pokemon Tower.

    - I finished beating my rival next and a Silph Co employee who was nearby gave me a Lapras all of a sudden, which I went to store in my PC before reaching the final floor of the building.
    - I saw that Giovanni was keeping Silph Co's president as his hostage and I challenged Giovanni to put an end to his antics. I managed to win and Giovanni left the company like a coward. :]
    - With Team Rocket now gone from Saffron city, I exchanged Pokemon and went shopping in Celadon city next, then I made plans to visit Cinnabar island to get my seventh Kanto badge.

    Got through the Pokemon Tower today. The first thing I did was fight my rival again. My Jolteon defeated three of his Pokemon, while my Golem and Wigglytuff dealt with Charmeleon and Exeggcute respectively. After that, I continued on my way up the tower. Along the way, I fought the Channelers and the ghost Marowak. On the highest floor, I defeated some Team Rocket people and evolved my Ivysaur into Venusaur. Then, I found Mr. Fuji and received the Poke Flute from him back at his house.

    Once I was done in Lavender Town, I returned to Celadon City and headed over to Cycling Road. I woke up the Snorlax blocking the way and fought it. After weakening it with teamwork from Butterfree and Golem, I caught Snorlax in my second Great Ball. Then, I rode my bike down Cycling Road and made a beeline for Fuchsia City. I skipped the trainers along the way for now as I'm saving the Exp. Points for my final team member, which I'll catch once I can Surf.

    - I set off to Fuchsia city now and passed through it on my way to Route 19. I surfed when I had reached the coast and I was swarmed by wild Tentacools and Swimmers as expected. :]
    - I defeated all the Swimmers on my way to the Seafoam Islands and when I had arrived, I visited the interior cave system which was hard to get through cuz of all the currents inside.
    - I had to shove so many boulders aside just to block the currents, then I surfed some more and reached the cave's exit. I finished exploring the sea and then I saved on Cinnabar Island. ^^

    Went to the Safari Zone today in order to collect all of the items. I had to enter three times before I got everything, including the Surf HM and Gold Teeth. I captured a few Pokemon, too, including Exeggcute and Paras.

    Next, after exchanging the teeth for the Strength HM at the warden's house, I entered the Fuchsia Gym. I fought the Gym trainers as usual, but the battles weren't easy. It was mostly the Psychic-using-why-aren't-they-in-the-Saffron-Gym-instead trainers who gave me trouble (never realized how brutal a STAB move from a freaking Drowzee could be). Koga, though, was much easier to defeat, mostly because he actually uses Poison types in his Poison type Gym. The Koffing family & Muk couldn't do too much to my Golem.

    After winning at the Gym, I taught Surf to the Snorlax I caught last time and started Surfing on Route 19. Soon, I encountered a Tentacool - a level 35 one too - and caught it. Tentacool's my obligatory Water type for this playthrough, so I now have all six of my team members.

    - So I visited Cinnabar Island's mart and purchased items and I also visited the gym although it was currently locked, which was an inconvenience. I visited the Pokemon Center too.
    - I exchanged Pokemon and visited the lab building next door. Some people inside offered me trades, tho I declined hee hee. I visited the mansion after that to locate the gym's missing key.
    - I pressed switches as I roamed the abandoned building and I leveled up some of my Pokemon as well, which would come in handy for the gym challenge. I then stumbled down a hole.

    Today, I spent my time just doing a lot of training. I didn't do any training on my way to Fuchsia City, so I still had to fight all of the trainers on Cycling Road and the routes between Fuchsia and Lavender. Decided to start by taking on everyone on Cycling Road. Even though it was my highest levelled Pokemon, I used my new Tentacool against the first couple of trainers I fought, since I wanted to get it to level up and evolve. Once I had my Tentacruel, I focused on training my other Pokemon.

    After finishing with Cycling Road (and also Route 18), I continued training on Routes 12-15. Took me quite a while to defeat every trainer on that stretch, but I eventually made it back to Lavender Town. I fought the second Snorlax, too, and defeated it with my Golem.

    Next time, I'll probably go to Saffron, though I might train on the sea routes instead.

    Decided to purchase Yellow today. I started a new game, got Pikachu, lost my first rival battle to Blue's Eevee (great start i must say haha...xD), raised Pikachu to Level 8 (learning Tail Whip and Thunder Wave respectively), delivered Oaks parcel and saved my game in Viridian City after healing Pikachu at the Pokemon Centre, ready to start the journey properly.

    Team so far:


    Level: 8
    Attacks: Thundershock, Growl, Tail Whip, Thunder Wave

    Went to Saffron City. I started by looking around town first, which didn't take too long since a lot of the buildings were blocked by Team Rocket members. I did pick up the Psychic TM, though.

    At the Fighting Dojo, I defeated the regular Blackbelts using my Butterfree, Wigglytuff, and Golem. I then fought the head trainer and defeated him using just my Butterfree. Before leaving, I obtained a Hitmonlee, chosen simply because it's my favourite of the Hitmons.

    Next, I healed my team at the Pokemon Center and then made some space in my bag by selling a few items. Then, I entered the Silph Co. building.

    I looked on youtube how to pull off Arbitrary code execution. I used it to get a shiny Venasaur and transfer it to Moon. It was time consuming but I love the glitches in Blue and when I found out about this untapped utopia of glitches I had never seen before, I just had to try it myself. Getting the "8F" item looked so cool, being able to rewrite code in the game. Arranging my items in a certain way in my bag and using it enabled me to change the first Pokemon in my Box to Shiny. I can't believe it worked.

    HOWEVER!!! Next I tryed to change my Glitched Mew to the right OT and ID number. I got half way through, changing it's ID number. All that was left was to change "Jester" to "GF." I got to the last step and my game froze. When I restarted my 3DS, my save was gone. GONE! This is why amateurs shouldn't mess with code they barely understand.

    Still I got my shiny Level 100 Venasaur and am very happy with that. Just a warning if you try to mess with this yourself, be careful, your data can DEFIANTLY be lost.

    Went through the Silph Co. building. One of the first things I did was look for the Card Key. Fortunately, I correctly remembered what floor it was on this time, so I was able to pick it up very quickly. Then, I began exploring the building in depth, starting from the bottom. On each floor, I defeated every trainer I came across, used the Card Key to access blocked areas, and found some more items. My bag ran out of room while picking things up, but I was able to make room by using the vitamins I found on my Pokemon.

    Once I (finally) finished going through the optional parts of the building, I used the warp panels to reach the area with my rival. I battled him again, defeating most of his Pokemon with my Jolteon. After receiving a Lapras from a Silph employee, I continued on until I reached the boardroom. There, I ran into Giovanni again and battled him. My Venusaur took down most of his team, though I did switch to Tentacruel to defeat Nidoqueen.

    With Team Rocket taken care of, I received the Master Ball from the Silph president and then used an Escape Rope to leave.

    With the release of GS VC getting closer, I decided to begin a new playthrough of Pokemon Yellow on the 3DS.

    You all know the drill; Professor Oak tries to give me a Pokemon, Blue takes it instead and I get given the Pikachu that attacked us earlier. I nicknamed it "Sparky", as is tradition. I beat Blue (who I named Daniel, as is tradition).

    After completing the Oak's Parcel quest and obtaining the Pokedex, I got some Poke Balls and went on a catching spree. I caught a Pidgey, named it Aquilla, and added it to my team. Beat Daniel on Route 22.

    About halfway through Viridian Forest, I realised my team wasn't going to work against Brock, so I nicknamed a Caterpie "Butters" and raised it to a Butterfree so it could learn Confusion.

    Brock was predictably easy, and although Butters was the MVP, I didn't want it on my team so it was boxed. I passed through Mt Moon, defeated Team Rocket and reached Cerulean City.

    I got the Bulbasaur, nicknamed it "Bruteroot" (as is tradition) but didn't train it until I had beaten Daniel first. After that I grinded on Route 4 to get Bruteroot to match the levels of my team.

    After conquering Nugget Bridge and restoring Bill back to normal I took on Misty. Bruteroot made short work of her. I was given a Charmander on Route 24 which I nicknamed Lizardon, and I did some more grinding to bring it to the level of the rest of my team.

    I caught a Jigglypuff and Abra on Route 5 (for Pokedex only) and decided to call it a day.

    With everything at Silph Co. taken care of, Saffron was free from Team Rocket. I quickly went around the town and talked to some NPCs, including the Copycat.

    After selling some unneeded items at the mart, I headed to the Saffron Gym. The first thing I did there was defeat all of the regular trainers. So, I warped around until I'd fought each trainer. I had a pretty easy time against most of them, though my Jolteon did faint against a Haunter after hitting itself in confusion a ridiculous number of times.

    Finally, after briefly leaving to heal my team, I battled Sabrina. Her first three Pokemon were taken down by my Jolteon. I came close to defeating Alakazam with Jolteon, too, but a Hyper Potion + critical hit Psybeam ruined that (yeah, this Gym was a mixed bag for Jolteon). I sent in my Golem to finish Alakazam off.

    I made my way to Fuschia City via Cycling Road. When I arrived, this was my team:

    Pikachu Lv 36
    Pidgeot Lv 36
    Venusaur Lv 36
    Charizard Lv 36
    Blastoise Lv 36
    Snorlax Lv 36

    Since Koga's Pokemon go up to Lv 50, I wanted to grind my team a bit more.

    Before that though, I wanted to go through the Safari Zone to grab the Warden's gold teeth and HM03. I managed to run into a Tauros, Chansey and Kangaskhan and caught them all except for the Tauros! Talk about good luck.

    I defeated all the trainers on Routes 14, 13 and 12 bringing my team members up to level 38. Afterwards, I grinded my team up to level 42 on wild Pokemon. I am now about to take on Koga.

    Today, I started Gold on 3DS VC. I named my character Peach, like I did on my original Gold game many years ago, and started in my room in New Bark Town shortly after. After talking to my mom and some people around town, I went to Prof. Elm's lab. There, I chose Cyndaquil as my starter, again like I did back when I first played Gold.

    Next, I headed over to Cherrygrove and got the map for my Pokegear. Heading up Route 30, I made it to Mr. Pokemon's house and received the Mystery Egg from him.

    Now, I'm fighting wild Pokemon to get Cyndaquil up a few levels before the first rival fight.

    I started playing Gold on 3DS VC early this morning, which is a real nostalgia trip, as Gold was my first ever Pokemon game.

    I've just beaten Morty with my Kadabra and Graveler, and realised that I've got no one to trade with to evolve them....

    I started my adventure the way all aspiring trainers do... by glitching to get every starter. I kid, but I did do that. It does work on VC. Naming scheme is Bayonetta eneimies, including the games' bosses.

    For the glitch, I picked Cyndaquil, and I rolled female! She, named Brave, didn't need that Attack stat anyway. The glitch requires me to get at least 1 more pokemon, and it takes a while to get there cuz I have to meet and name the rival before i obtain pokeballs. Once I did, I... lost to Silver, but then I stored her, changed the box, and reset the game. I was happy that I successfully did the glitch upon checking again after picking Chikorita. When he was stored (again, lost to Silver), I reset and picked my true starter, Totodile. The Chikorita's name is Insidious, and the Totodile is Valor. I just picked up the starters just to migrate them, they will not be team members.

    I went through 1 detour to the Ruins of Alph, 1 puzzle solved, and 1 badge before picking up another pokemon, which was a Hoppip, which I ditched for a Bellsprout and Pidgey. Hoppip was Jubileus, but after ditching it I gave that name to my Pidgey, and I'll re-nickname the Hoppip some other time. No, the Bird Jesus reference was not intentional, I realized that later. Bellsprout's name is Fortitudo. Speaking of Bellsprout, I'm not screwed out of Sprout Tower if I didn't do it? Wait, I get Flash from there, right? I really should go there. Maybe to grind out other team members.

    Badge 2, Jubi was the MVP, cuz of course she was, and then evolved into Pidgeotto! Togepi hatched, and I named him... Wesker. Why? Cuz I was given an egg. I battled Silver, and Jubi made short work of him.

    I later went to find a Heracross. Took me FOREVER to find one, and i basically had to be on a different route than where i was hunting for one. Named him Gomorrah.

    Day 1 team:

    Valor the Totodile- level 16
    Jubileus the Pidgey- level 19
    Fortitudo the Bellsprout- level 16
    Gomorrah the Heracross- level 12

    Planned team member: Eevee->Espeon and ???
    Full shiny list: x2 x2 ;714; ;778; -Alola x3 ;749;

    Shinies found, but could not obtain:

    3 shiny hunted, 27 happened naturally (Current shiny luck: pls stop)

    Once my Cyndaquil was level 9, I fought my rival for the first time. It was a pretty easy fight thanks to all of my training. Back at the lab in New Bark Town, I ended up naming my rival Silver (decided against using the name AAAAAAA I had on my old Gold).

    I then made my way up to Violet City. Along the way, I caught a Pidgey and Sentret to have in my party, though I won't use them on my team this time. Once I made it to Violet, I took a detour to the Ruins of Alph, where I caught an Unown after solving the Kabuto puzzle.

    Next, I took on the Violet City Gym. After defeating both regular trainers, I challenged Falkner. His Pidgey wasn't too bad, but it lowered my Cyndaquil's accuracy with Mud Slap, so I had to switch out afterwards. I sent in Unown and had it weaken Pidgeotto a little bit with Hidden Power (super effective, it's HP Ice based on previous fights). Once Unown was KOed, I sent Cyndaquil back out and just used Ember until I won.

    With my first badge obtained, I obtained an egg from Elm's aides in the Pokemon Center and then continued on to Route 32. I looked around in the grass until I found and caught my next team member: Mareep.

    Now, I'm going to continue down Route 32 a bit, then do some training. I skipped Sprout Tower earlier, so I'll head back there in a while to train.

    Bought Pokemon Silver and named myself Slade. My starter is Totodile which I nicknamed Silverdile. There is an origin for that very name actually. Back when they had Silver at stores to play, that particular file had a Totodile nicknamed SILVERDILE so it just stuck with me. Named my rival Franky, after a good friend of mine. Decided to go with the best team possible so I have Silverdile the Totodile, Rocker the Geodude, Pex the Spearow and Baba the Mareep. All are around level 12. I am currently in Union Cave.

    I got Silver. Started with Cyndaquil. Caught a few things including my next team member, Zubat (Trap-bat set ftw). Training up at Sprout Tower before I take on the first gym.

    I hear Crystal may be released after all, so if it does, I'll get that instead of Gold. I need the elemental beams in my life!

    I got all the way to Goldenrod city today. I want to beat Sudowoodo tomorrow so I have the quick way back to getting berries. If it looks doubtful, I'll take the long way. I also want to do the bug catching contest.

    I have my dad coming tomorrow, so I don't know what my schedule would be like. Hopefully, I can get enough time.

    My best Pokemon right now are my Totodile and Flaaffy. I have Pokemon like Sentret and Ekans as tag-alongs for the time being.

    I couldn't help myself and dove right into the Virtual Console edition of Pocket Monsters Gin as soon as it was finished downloading onto my 3DS. The first Cyndaquil I chose happened to be a female--what luck!

    I sure hope Crystal gets a Virtual Console release: I got the CoroCoro Ho-oh and I'm itching for a second version playthrough with Chikorita as my starter...
