    @ Blademaster: I dunno. *SHRUGS*

    Anyhoo, now I'm on my way to Cianwood City. The Lighthouse flummoxed me for a couple days until I figured out how to go further in it.

    1) Did you beat Morty yet?

    2) Who's on your team?

    Then we can say yes or no

    That part took me forever to figure out, I had to Google it. The 3D was pretty impressive though. The top of the Pokemon mansion in Celadon, and the top of the Tin Bell Tower, are also 3D. Makes for a neat mini preview of Black and White.

    Yeah, I thought of "Black/White" when I saw that part of the Lighthouse, too!

    I haven't gotten far enough to see those other two, though. Thanks for the spoilers. (LOL )

    You can actually visit it as soon as you arrive in Ecruteak, but obviously, you can't explore the whole thing without Surf and Strength.

    P.S. - I'm in Cianwood, got the SecretPotion, and beat Eusine. Now I'm leveling in preparation for Chuck and Co. at the Gym.

    Thank you. I didnt know if you obtained everything yet. I ran though quite a bit of Mt Mortar and went to Mahogany first before dealing with Morty.

    Amphy ftw, Slowpoke ok..Quilava will get you out of pinches, and Togetic, damn you can't give it Aura Sphere yet. You should be fine.

    Togetic is your greatest weapon against Morty. Makes his Shadowball useless and it has a Psychic attack.

    The only problem is he will then resort to Hypnosis/Dream Eater ALL THE DAMN TIME!

    As for myself, ive beaten all the Gyms, im just doing some team training before i take on the E4 again and go after Red. Then i find out what else there is to do etc....

    Current Team - Garchomp, Typhlosion, Tauros, Raichu, Aerodactyl and Lapras.

    Sup newbie. Enjoy your stay in our humble shithole.

    I've almost reached Pryce's Gym and am questioning my Quilava's abilities... I SHOULD blow more time and effort on a Flamethrower TM, but I'm impatient, so I'm just gonna save up for my beloved Ice Beam and hope Flame Wheel can do the trick in the meantime.

    EDIT: Forgot about Lava Plume. I'm good now.

    Currently in the process of getting a Shiny Stone to evolve Togetic into Togekiss to use against Red. 5 team members down. One left to go. All I need is a Level 1 Riolu, or a Female Lucario. Does anyone have either? I'm getting really impatient and desperate now.

    Here's where I'm at:

    (1) Flaaffy is now Ampharos.

    (2) Croconaw is now Feraligatr.

    (3) Chuck's Storm Badge is now mine. He was the first Gym Leader I had trouble with, BTW...I actually reset my game once 'cause his Primape's darn Double Team/Focus Punch combo pwned two of my Pokemon, but I tried a different strategy and won the second time. (It still wasn't easy, though... )

    (4) Boxed Gloom (who actually helped me against Chuck's Poliwrath, mainly by stalling while I revived and healed others before fainting) and got out Eevee (who has an Everstone to [hopefully] prevent a rogue Espeon/Umbreon evolution). I'm standing before the first patch of grass in the first route, ready to level him up. Once he's level 28 and on the verge of evolution, I plan to take the Everstone back from him, trade him to my "Platinum" game so he can become Leafeon (and maybe learn stuff from the Pastoria Move Tutor). This is the first time I'm gonna have an Eeveelution in a main "Pokemon" game...wish me luck!

    Today I went up the lighthouse in Olivine, Surfed my way over to Cianwood, stole the girl's Shuckle, pwned Chuck (Chuck Norris my ass... Also, Black Belt Nob! *dies*), pwned Esuine, headed back to Olivine, saved Amphy...

    After finding Jasmine's Magnemite to be too much (omg how FAIL does that make me D: ), I wandered off on a training mission. Went and surfed over to Mahogany Town for shiggles, exploring the middle of the Mt Mortar caves and finding some yummy items. My mother phoned me about 6 times in a row for random items, the 7th time giving me a Moon Stone (coulda been a water stone, bitch D: *stares at Poliwhirl*). Went down to Goldenrod Dept Store to get the Thunder TM, but decided against it when I discovered it was 1 level off learning Thunderbolt. Wandered south of Goldenrod on a Pikachu training mission, only to find mofo Raikou in the grass. Found that my Pikachu was faster than it. At level 25. Win. Slam missed though...

    So now I've wandered back to Olivine, having picked up Bill's Eevee (which is female!!! My first female Eevee! SQUEEEEEE!!) which I may contemplate training in the future.

    My banner lies. I have 5 Badges, in Olivine City with a Pikachu, Sneasel, Haunter, Poliwhirl, Charmeleon and Bayleef. All at level 26/27. What a productive day!

    Okay, I've hatched my final new team member, got most of my overall team leveled up a bit, and will face Red when I'm good and ready. Problem is... I'm fighting mainly wild Pokémon... which is a bit tedious... and the S.S. Aqua doesn't allow you re-fight their trainers every trip, like the original games. I need to find someplace new where there are plenty of trainers you can battle repetitively. Does anyone know of a place... besides the Fighting Dojo?

    Uhhh what? I thought they respawned. They have for me? Or maybe I never took the boat back to Olivine twice...

    Otherwise, you can refight the people on your cell...Im sure there's a list of who you can call at what time and when you can refight them. Their levels go up to the 50's and 60's pretty quick..

    I'm at the top of the Radio Tower now, about to face the Rockets one more time.

    I was wrong, incindentally. After a particularly lucky streak at Voltorb Flip and shopping for a few potent TM's, my team is now more or less... Well... God.

    Typhlosion has Lava Plume, Sunny Day, Solarbeam, and Swift.
    Slowbro has Surf, Ice Beam, Yawn, and Zen Headbutt.
    Togetic has Fly, Extrasensory, Shadow Ball, and Roost.
    And Ampharos has Rain Dance, Thunderbolt, Thunder, and Focus Blast.

    We're ready to rumble.

    Currently in the Rocket Base in Mahogany Town, following Lance around. Can't wait to get out and beat up Pryce. Pikachu will come in handy, only worried about his Piloswine, but if all else fails, Charmeleon's Dragon Rage wins.

    Banner is again wrong. 6 badges, Pokemon the same though. Contemplating evolving my Haunter sooner rather than later, but gonna do it when the bf is ready to evolve his, since it would be useful to us both... Jasmine went down easily this time, since Charmeleon finally learnt Fire Fang. And Surfed the Steelix to death. Anyone else think the Steelix sprite is really creepy? I dun like it. It glares at me.



    Oh, out of curiosity, does anyone else get redirected from bulbapedia to a page telling you that the site contains malware? I was searching for Sneasel earlier and it kept redirecting, but not always straight away... I'm using Google Chrome if that makes any difference...

    Also, I think Sneasels should learn Close Combat. Just gonna throw that one out there.

    No. Sneasel's arms are too spindly to learn Clo...

    ::Looks at Hera:: Err maybe. I take that back. Maybe they should. Or Extremespeed at the very least.

    I just beat Red. 3 weeks later -.-.....Teal all in low 60's. That was positively one of the most strategic battles I ever had to fight. Stupid Venu almost ruining me due to Sleep Powder, but MEGAHORN SAVES LIVES!

    I've always wondered how people can turn on their Gameboy for three weeks and do nothing but levelgrinding. I can't do that even if it's only for an hour.

    Sometimes, you gotta do it. Least you can rebattle the Gym Leaders and get some good EXP that way. Now that I beat Red by the skin of my teeth, I can re battle the E4. That'll be nice as well. 70's no problem!

    I can levelgrind in the progress of the game, like say, raising my Chikorita till l.15 before Falkner. As soon as there's nothing more to 'conquer', my interest fades and I restart with different pokemon.

    Im like that but im currently going through the process of finding and rematching all the gym leaders. Theres a cool double battle between yourself and your rival vs Lance and Clair if you go back to the Dragons Den but id advise being about lvl 60/70.

    I just beat my second Kanto Gym Leader. My team is averaging around LV. 47-48.

    It'd be nice if I could find a Goddamn Shiny Stone somewhere to evolve Togetic with... Where the Hell are they...

    Also, weirdness: In a double battle on Route 6 yesterday, I used Earthquake. It hit the enemies' Plusle and Minun, obviously... But it also hit my Togetic. Now, Earthquake is a Ground move, and I double-checked: Togetic is Normal/Flying... So what the fuck?

    You can Shiny Stones easy from the Pokéathlon Dome by paying 3000 points on certain days. It seems expensive, but it really isn't. As for that Double Battle mishap, I dunno, maybe Gravity was in effect or something?

    Unless Gravity is an Ability Plusle/Minun have (which I know they don't), that's not it.

    Any tips on an easy way to rack up Pokeathlon points?

    I know I'm nowhere NEAR that point of the game, but I gotta ask the question anyway...

    Can you rematch Gym Leaders more than once?

    Anyhow, the most important things that happened to me since I last posted were:

    (1) Got Leafeon!

    (2) Got Golem!

    (3) Reached the Safari Zone and did Baoba's Owner Aptitude quests.

    Right now, I'm grinding in the grass below the Safari Zone, then it's off to the Olivine Gym!

    I checked beforehand, and yes, you can rematch them practically an infinite amount of times, especially when their schedules allow them to do so.

    Yeah, right now I'm just calling them and saving them up so I can hit them up gauntlet style. Green gives crazy good Exp

    I just noticed something after battling in the Battle Frontier for so long: the rental Pokémon you get from the Battle Factory are practically the same Pokémon the opponents use in all the other Battle areas. It's true. I can almost swear, I fought an Aipom with the moves Thunder Wave, Double Hit, U-Turn, and Fake Out in one of the others areas and that same Aipom was up for rental in the Battle Factory. It's bizarre... O_O

    WOO-HOO!!

    Thanks for the info, guys!

    Anyhow, I beat Jasmine (piece of cake!), and I'm now gonna do Mt. Mortar (I've been there before, but not with the right HMs to go further).

    I've got another question, though. I wanna raise the Tyrogue I'll win in there into a Hitmonchan, 'cause I'm very interested in using him since the 4th Gen's Physical/Special system change makes his elemental punches (gasp!) viable attack options.

    Thing is, I want Hitmonchan to have the Iron Fist Ability instead of Keen Eye, to power up his punch-based moves. However, Tyrogue has two possible Abilities of his own: Guts and Steadfast.

    How does it work when one Pokemon has two possible Abilities, but its evolution(s) has/have two TOTALLY different Abilities of their own at the point of evolution? In this case, when Tyrogue evolves, will one of Hitmonchan's Abilities be randomly assigned at the point of evolution, or will Hitmonchan's Ability be predestined from the moment I receive Tyrogue?

    As I understand it, that ability that Tyrogue has determines the ability it'll have as a Hitmonchan. In this case, you want Steadfast, because a Tyroge with Steadfast will have Iron Fist after evolving.

    Well, I'm a bit further in HG, while taking a break from going after the eighth badge, I went onto Route 38 with my Frisk Stantler, scouting for some wild Pokemon with held items.

    Anyway, earlier today I caught a Magnemite holding a Metal Coat, then I eventually found and caught a Farfetch'd holding a Stick (just to have one with its rather rare item), and then, I found a Raticate I found was holding a Chilan Berry. But that's not all...the Raticate was found to be shiny! So I caught that one too, but being as I already have a Raticate, I'm at a bit of a crossroads, what to do when you have a Pokemon raised from its first form, and you end up finding a shiny of the final form at a level lower than the level it'd normally evolve at? The shiny Raticate I caught is at L16, of course.

    Really?

    Thanks!

    Anyhow, since I don't have Waterfall (grr), it looks like it'll be awhile before I can even get him in the first place. So I moved on to Mahogany Town, caught the Red Gyarados at the Lake of Rage, and am currently going through the Rocket Hideout.

    Well personally, I'd keep them both.

    Oh, and congrats on being so lucky!
