    Flew back to Pewter City today. At the Gym, I battled the one Camper and defeated his Sandslash with my Mr. Mime.

    Then, I battled Brock. I started the fight with my Piloswine, testing its new Ice Beam move against Graveler. I kept Piloswine in against Kabutops and Omastar, taking both of them down with Earthquake. For Rhyhorn and Onix, I switched over to Mr. Mime and KOed them with Ice Punch.

    I received the Boulder Badge, then saved.

    In Crystal:

    Took on my Rival today in Ecruteak City. Beat him pretty easily. Finally ran into Suicune, Entei and Raikou as well, along with Eusine.

    My team:

    Daphne -- Gastly -- Lv. 19
    Sting -- Beedrill -- Lv. 20
    Dorothy -- Elekid -- Lv. 20
    Lennie -- Growlithe -- Lv. 20
    Spock -- Psyduck -- Lv. 21
    Buffy -- Zubat -- Lv. 20

    Took down Morty! Loved the battle. Overall it took two times to beat him, first time I put my Butterfree up front. Ended up switching it to one of my stronger Pokemon. That ended up being a good thing to do. Saved up my Psyduck for his Gengar. He helped and then used Growlithe to finish him off. That Gengar is bulky and fast! Even faster than Scyther.

    Made sure to take advantage of his other Pokemon using Curse and switched out to other Pokemon as well.

    Here's the team I used:

    Dexter -- Scyther -- Lv. 20
    Buffy -- Zubat -- Lv. 21
    Lennie -- Growlithe -- Lv. 21
    Spock -- Psyduck -- Lv. 21
    Daphne -- Gastly -- Lv. 19
    Sunny -- Butterfree -- Lv. 18

    At the Cerulean Gym, I took on the Swimmers mostly using my Houndoom. I wanted Houndoom to get some experience since it was my lowest leveled Pokemon, and the Pokemon that I didn't OHKO didn't try to use Water moves on me.

    For the fight against Misty, I used several Pokemon. My Electabuzz took down Golduck and Lapras with Thunderbolt. I didn't have anything to hit Quagsire super effectively, but fortunately my Mr. Mime got a critical hit with Psychic, resulting in a OHKO. Finally, when Starmie came out, I went over to Houndoom as I wanted to see how much damage its Dark STAB could do. Bite (no Crunch yet) got Starmie to red HP and made it flinch, so Houndoom managed to win that matchup without taking damage.

    I received the Cascade Badge and then returned to the Pokemon Center.

    Well I beat Crystal. I didn't realize I had not posted since I caught Celebi but I slapped the Exp Share on it and beat Lt Surge and then Erika who gave me the Giga Drain TM so Celebi could get some STAB along with Psychic. I then challenged the Elite 4 again to help get Celebi more experience. From there I just trudged my way through Kanto again getting the badges and beating the various trainers. It seemed to go more quickly than it did last time.

    After getting all the badges I headed to Mt Silver and challenged Red. Donphan took care of Pikachu with Earthquake and Flareon defeated his Venusaur with Flamethrower. Electabuzz took down Lapras and Scizor defeated Espeon...and then the trouble started. He sent out Charizard so I went to Feraligatr. Flamethrower did a decent amount of damage to Feraligatr so I was forced to heal constantly. The fact that 4 of those Flamethrower were crits did not help either. Feraligatr slowly won and then he sent out the beast that is Snorlax. It basically swept my entire team apart from Scizor who resists its moves. I ended up just spamming Metal Claw to boost my own Attack and after quite a few turns the beast fell.

    I think I am done playing Kanto based games until after Let's Go comes out. But I still had fun with this team, especially Scizor who is freaking awesome. Ended up around Lv52 as the average level.

    Made it to Mahogany Town last night. Ran into Raikou the first time! Couldn't put him to sleep. Ran into him again today, tried throwing a Pokeball at him. It didn't work out, but it was close! :p Working on some more training tonight.

    Took a break from my Crystal playthrough to return to my Red playthrough from a while back. I saw that I had cleared everything in Saffron and hadn't gone to Cinnabar yet, so I decided to head to the island.

    Flying to Pallet Town, I used Surf and started heading down Route 21. I started fighting the trainers on the route using my Butterfree. At first, I was going to battle everyone with just Butterfree, but there were more trainers than I remembered, so I started switching to some of my other Pokemon. My Jolteon learned Double Kick, which was nice for type coverage.

    Eventually, I made it to Cinnabar Island. After going to the Pokemon Center to heal and deposit some items into the PC, I went to the Pokemon Mansion. I looked around the first floor before heading upstairs.

    The shiny hunt for Totodile in Gold version finally came to an end last night! Was doing a bit more soft resetting when this little guy showed up out of nowhere.

    Finally continued with Red after a month. The first thing I did was finish going through the Pokemon Mansion. I didn't really get a lot done there last time, so I still had quite a bit left to explore. I battled the trainers and defeated most of their Pokemon with my Tentacruel, which was a little annoying at times since my Tentacruel's only good attack was Surf. I picked up all the items on the ground, too, including the Secret Key.

    Once I finished exploring the mansion, I left and looked around some other parts of Cinnabar Island that I skipped last time. At the science lab, I had my fossil from Mt. Moon restored, giving me a Kabuto.

    Finally, I briefly flew back to Celadon. At the department store, I gave some vending machine drinks to the girl on the top floor and received several TMs from her. I needed the Ice Beam TM from her to teach to Tentacruel.

    I finally made it through Rock Tunnel (I forgot how annoying the encounters are in this game!), and I just defeated my Rival in Lavender Tower.

    Went to the Cinnabar Gym today. The first thing I did was fight all of the Gym trainers using my Wigglytuff, Butterfree, and Golem. I then answered all of the quiz questions, even though I didn't need to, since I like doing them for fun.

    Finally, I battled Blaine. I sent my Tentacruel out first and used its Surf to defeat Blaine's Growlithe and Ponyta. After that, I switched to my Golem and OHKOed both Rapidash and Arcanine with Earthquake.
    An interesting thing that happened during those last two turns of the battle was Blaine using Super Potions on his full health Pokemon...this is a known thing, but I don't think it's happened to me before today. :p

    Anyway, I received the Gym badge and then saved.

    Finally got around to playing VC Crystal..... despite buying it back in December.

    I chose Cyndaquil as my starter, intending on using Gyarados once I got one.
    And beat the Elite Four yesterday, arriving in Kanto today and beating Surge, Sabrina, and Erika. Completely forgot about being able to obtain Larvitar at the Game Corner, nearly went broke buying coins so I could get one sooner! I was just checking to see how much Porygon cost, otherwise I wouldn't have known I could have bought Larvitar lol
