    Thumbs up Older Games Trainer's Travelog

    Hello, all.

    Please excuse my absence. I have been (and will be until the end of the month) VERY busy. I have very little time to work with BMG, and even LESS to work with R/S, even though I have both.

    Anyway, to make up for it, I am making a topic similar to the Trainer Diary from TPM, except this is for the English game. This will be a good place to share your team, your status, your problems, etc. HOWEVER, this is NOT the place to ask non-opinionated questions (where is the next gym?, etc.). Please ask those in the Simple Questions topic.

    I'll post mine here, too.

    Sapphire - Male - "Trip"
    Lv.07 "HEALIX" Lotad (Rain Saucer) - Growl, Astonish, Absorb
    Lv.10 "VERNIE" Treecko (Overgrow) - Pound, Growl, Absorb
    Status - Looking for a Ralts ("SUNIGHT")

    Ruby - Female - "Trip"
    Lv.04 "NUTZ" Seedot (Early Bird) - Bide, Harden [to add Bullet Seed]
    Lv.07 "HOT CHICK" Torchic (Blaze) - Scratch, Growl, Focus Energy
    Status - Battling trainers on Rt.102

    You may post updates, but try to limit your updates to one per day.

    EDIT: Thank you for pointing it out, Grn, yes, if you're going to update us, you may post one new post per day, and any further updates for the day should be edited in.

    Mine's boring:

    Sapphire
    male trainer - Tom (an ode to my first Pokemon fanfic)
    lvl 5 Wurmple - (shield dust) - Tackle, String Shot, Poison Sting
    lvl 5 Poochyena - (run away) - Tackle, Howl
    lvl 5 Zigzagoon - (gather things) - Tackle, Growl, Tail Whip
    lvl 5 Surskit - (swift swim) - Bubble
    lvl 6 Lotad - (swift swim) - Astonish, Growl
    lvl 11 Mudkip - (torrent) - Tackle, Growl, Mud Slap, Water Gun
    Status - Trying to fill my Pokedex...this is what I refer to as my base version, which I use as a base (get it?) for all other versions in the series

    Ruby
    female trainer - Terra (liked the name...didn't feel like making a new one)
    lvl 9 Torchic - (blaze) - Scratch, Growl, Focus Energy
    Status - Heading towards Petalburg Forest to get a Shroomish

    And should we edit our posts, or make new replies for updates?

    Well, I don't have my versions yet. I have to wait until after I get Zelda. But here's what I have on my Sapphire r*m. Team-wise that is.

    Manectric: Thunderbolt/Crunch/Thunder Wave/Roar
    Ludicolo (Lotad's final evo): Surf/Giga Drain/Fake Out/Uproar
    Delcatty (I gave mine the nick Clawdia, after the resident catgirl in Fighting Foodons): Double-Edge, Faint Attack, Covet, Heal Bell
    Blaziken (nicknamed Firestorm): Flamethrower, Sky Uppercut, Slash, Peck
    Swellow: Wing Attack, Quick Attack, Endeavor, Aerial Ace
    Aggron: Double-Edge, Iron Tail, Roar, Mud-Slap

    I've caught Regirock, Registeel, Latias, Rayquaza (with a normal Pokeball), and Kyogre (with a normal Pokeball).

    Currently on the way to Fallarbor Town, just used the Old Lady's Rest Stop. My beloved Taillow just evolved! Current team:

    Swellow L22
    Wingull L 16
    Combusken L22
    Aron L14
    Zigzagoon L14
    Electrike L12

    I've been doing some switching out too...I have a level 22 Geodude and a L18 Shroomish (Shroola, it's a female) in my PC for example.

    Presently training for the Pokemon League. Here's my team.

    Goozey - Swampert Male - Lv. 45
    Brandy - Mightyena Female - Lv. 47
    Striker - Manectric Male - Lv. 45
    Rose - Skarmory Female - Lv. 43
    Lucille - Wailord Femal - Lv. 42
    Kyoogra - Kyogre - Lv. 46

    I met it to the latter half of Ever Grande City. Tried battling the league. Made it up to Glacia and got my ass kicked by her Glaile. Restarted the game, which had been saved right before entering. I guess I've got raise my Pokies to Lv. 50! ^o^;
    What kind of Pokemon am I?

    Just today, my newly evolved Swellow, which I've been feeding Pokeblocks to and is I think now at level 23, won the first contest I've entered so far, the Cool contest in Verdanturf. It kicked butt on the initial impressions (when they're just shown before the judges) and that's what won it for us.

    I've had Sapphire since yesterday, and here's my team:

    Hitori - Level 12 Male Torchic
    Chou Chou - Level 13 Male Beautifly
    Kotori - Level 12 Female Taillow
    Kinogassa - Level 13 Female Shroomish
    Kouta - Level 12 Male Whismur
    Oko - Level 12 Female Zigzagoon

    Status - Just won a Stone Badge, after my Shroomish beat the crap out of Roxanne. Nosepass wasn't easy to defeat, though, especially since my Shroomish was Level 11 when she fought Nosepass.

    I'm too lazy to look up their attacks right now, or their characteristics.

    Swellow has also now won the Super-Ranked Cool Contest, and my Combusken also won the Normal-Ranked one. Swellow is now one of my favorite Flying types. Currently attempting to beat Norman for badge #5. (Balance Badge? I think that's what it's called.)

    I have just ordered both on import today, should arrive in a week hopefully, in time for my little brothers birthday :) Geodude, I share your love of the Taillow line, and even better is the fact that Swellow remains small when it evolves, smaller than Pidgetto infact! I don't like the huge birds.

    I'm planning on starting with Treecko, although from the replies here so far it seems that Torchic is by far the most popular!

    Well, I've decided to stop working on Sapphire until I get further on Ruby.

    Ruby - Female - "Trip"

    Lv.20 Geodude "ROCROWNED" - Rock Throw, Magnitude, Rock Smash, Tackle (Sturdy)
    Lv.21 Skitty "CATANA" - Tackle, Assist (or, as I like to call it, "Cat's Paw"), Sing, Attract
    Lv.21 Dustox "MOTHRIFT" - Confusion, Gust, Protect, Moonlight
    Lv.21 Ninjask "QUIKAIDA" - Fury Swipes, Scratch, Leech Life, Double-Team
    Lv.21 Nuzleaf "NUTZ" - Bullet Seed, Fake Out, Synthesis, Nature Power
    Lv.21 Combusken "HOT CHICK" - Ember, Double-Kick, Peck, Scratch

    I'm going to change Nutz's name soon, but I haven't decided what to...

    I've finally done enough on my versions to where I feel I deserve to post an update to my progress:

    Ruby:
    lvl 21 Combusken - Peck, Scratch, Double Kick, Ember
    lvl 21 Shroomish - Mega Drain, Tackle, Stun Spore, Leech Seed

    Sapphire:
    lvl 19 Shroomish - Mega Drain, Tackle, Stun Spore, Leech Seed
    lvl 19 Zigzagoon - Tackle, Cut, Odor Sleuth, Headbutt
    lvl 19 Surskit - Bubble, Quick Attack, Sweet Scent, Water Sport
    lvl 19 Aron - Tackle, Metal Claw, Mud Slap, Headbutt
    lvl 20 Taillow - Peck, Wing Attack, Focus Energy, Quick Attack
    lvl 20 Marshtomp - Tackle, Mud Shot, Mud Slap, Water Gun

    I keep going back to collect and plant new berries. I'm addicted to it. I think that's why I like the Harvest Moon games so much.
