    HeartGold playthrough: minor update.

    My team members are all at level 62, and I've managed to catch a Chansey in the Safari Zone, allowing me to get a Lucky Punch. Still waiting for a Chansey outbreak in order to effectively hunt for at least one Lucky Egg. I've also won the Bug-Catching Contest for the second time, earning my second Sun Stone. I plan to participate in the contest again in the future to see if I can earn some other rewards and fill some more pages in my Pokédex. Using a Parasect with Spore and False Swipe as my Bug Catcher. My quest to collect all the Plates also continues, as I board the S.S. Aqua every day when it leaves.

    Time to use a Revive on this thread!

    Thanks to the six Lucky Eggs I got for myself during a Chansey outbreak, grinding became very easy. I re-challenged and beat the Pokémon League with a level 71 team, and the next day, I trained my team up one more level each before realizing that I had 24 Rare Candies in my Bag, so I raised my team up to level 77 and climbed up Mt. Silver. I battled and beat Red in an epic showdown, where each of my team members got to take down one of his Pokémon. I also proceeded to get a Treecko and a Beldum from Steven and a Charmander from Professor Oak, as well as catching Kyogre.

    As I've now collected every single Pokéathlon Data Card and caught every Pokémon that appears in outbreaks, I now only intend to catch every Unown form from the Ruins of Alph before wrapping up this playthrough and moving on to White 2.

    I picked up where I left off with my latest playthrough of Ultra Sun

    Current team:

    Decidueye
    Incineroar (I mean, he has to be on my team all the time)
    A-Raichu
    The final evo for the pseudo-legendary Dragon/Fighting mon
    Mimikyu
    Dusk form Lycanroc

    I'm about to finish Mina's trial, which is really easy. If I don't knock out the totem with a flare blitz from Incineroar, I'll take it down with a Z-move from Lycanroc.

    Last week I started a Dragon monolocke run on Pokemon Blue (virtual console).

    Since there are so few dragons in Gen, to prevent myself from having to make a team of 6 Dragonite, I've expanded my definition of a "dragon" to be basically anything that can learn Dragon Rage, is in the Dragon egg group or becomes a Dragon in later gens. So I picked up a Charmander from Oak, said goodbye to Mum, and headed off!

    (To add some legitimacy to the not-Dragon Dragon theme, I also decided to use the Pewter City walk-thru-walls glitch to make a quick trip to the Safari Zone (picking up a Super Rod, an Abra from Celadon, and some TMs on the way) so I can start the game with a Dratini as my "real" starter haha. I also gave the guards lemonade for non-linearity lolz.)

    Water Gun/Wrap Dratini totally destroyed both my Rival and the Pewter Gym, after which I picked up my third dragon at Mount Moon--Magikarp :D Then Charmander (now Charmeleon, woop woop) and I began some intense training in preparation to overthrow the Rocket Occupation of Mt. Moon. All the trainers were super easy except one Rocket who for some reason had a lv. 16 Raticate with Hyper Fang D: but I knew this was coming, so I taught Charmeleon Counter in advance :p

    Me and my dragon squad are now in Cerulean, training for the next Rival battle. I'm very much enjoying this run so far ^^

    Team so far:
    • Treazora, the Dratini, lv. 21
    • Lacerto, the Charmeleon, lv. 24
    • Firma, the Magikarp, lv. 11

    Last weekend I started my second playthrough of Pokémon Black 2. As I picked Oshawott in my recently-finished Pokémon White playthrough, I really would've wanted to use Snivy this time around, but I've already decided that my Grass type for this playthrough will be Virizion, my favorite Legendary Pokémon from Generation V. Sure I'll have to wait for quite a while for it, but it'll be worth it.

    I've recently beat Roxie, filmed my debut film at Pokéstar Studios, and taken care of a couple Neo Team Plasma Grunts, and next I'm going to board a ship to Castelia City.

    My team so far:
    • Oshawott (level 14)
    • Pidove (level 14)
    • Riolu (level 14)
    • Growlithe (level 15)
    • Magnemite (level 14)
    • Patrat (placeholder/HM slave)

    I'm replaying Pokemon Y because I'm on break, bored with Switch and my PS4, and not in the mood for SM/USUM.

    I'm currently outside the Pokemon Day Care - just finished with capturing the Snorlax that was napping on the bridge.

    Current team:

    Frogadier level 16
    Fletchinder level 19
    Ivysaur level 16
    Gibble level 15 (I had a spare Gibble that I had bred a long time ago, so I threw him into the game via the Pokemon Bank).

    I did not do any planning of my team in advance, I don't feel like I need to. I've completed these games like a million times.

    My replay of Pokémon Black 2 is going smoothly. Just yesterday, I earned the Bolt Badge from Elesa (without the need to use the Sandshrew I had put in my party just in case) and made my way to Driftveil City.

    An unexpected team change happened while I was back in Castelia: since I had used an Unfezant so many times in Unova and my favorite Unova bird, Braviary, is exclusive to White 2, I decided do things a little differently and dump my Pidove for a Zubat I caught in Castelia Sewers and make it my Flying-type team member.

    So I've gone from having one playthrough going (Virtual Blue) to ... four XD

    Pokemon Ultra Moon: Got this for xmas and I am SO HYPE. Just about to take on the second trial @Akala, current team:

    1. Strigo the Dartrix♂, lv. 22
    2. Vesperajxa the Lycanroc-Dusk form♀, lv. 25
    3. Belmusxa the Ribombee♀, lv. 25
    4. Mordanta the Alolan Raticate♀, lv. 21
    5. Mono the Alolan Persian♂, lv. 20
    6. Eljxetajxo the Alolan Grimer♂ lv. 19
    I'm especially proud of my Dusk form Lycanroc, which I bred from a rockruff I was gifted via the generous Pokemon giveaway subreddit. I've wanted a dusk form Lycanroc for months and now I finally have her ^^ I'm also probably going to switch out Grimer for something else soon, since I just realised he doesn't evolve til level 37 O.O

    My other three playthrus (Virtual Crystal, Virtual Blue and Pokemon Y) are on hold til I finish Ultra Moon.

    My playthrough of Black 2 is advancing nicely. I've reached Mistralton City and cleared everything between it and Twist Mountain, so now I just need to defeat Skyla and I'll be on my way to Lentimas Town. My current team is:
    • Samurott
    • Lucario
    • Magnezone
    • Growlithe
    • Crobat
    • Zoroark
    Zoroark is there just to fill up a spot until I get Virizion, but I'm still keeping it in equal strength to the rest of my team, since I consider this a "preview" of me using a Zoroark in Ultra Moon, and I honestly like the Pokémon. And while I do have a Fire Stone to evolve Growlithe, first I'll be waiting for it to learn Flare Blitz, which is gonna take a while, but it'll be worth it.

    I'm playing Ultra Moon one more time before the semester starts. I'm about to take on Olivia..

    Current team:

    Lycanroc dusk form
    Brionne
    Dartrix
    Mudbray
    Mimikyu

    I've been rotating Salazzle and Trumbeak for slot six. I am going to spend some time actually doing some of the side stuff like show pokemon x to person in exchange for money. I actually had fun with the Ditto side thingy (capturing the give Ditto that were pretending to be humans).
