    Talk about lucky. I always fumed at the fact those events were limited to certain countries, none of which were New Zealand.

    I beaten the Elite 4 twice, all while going through a long and arduous task of evolving the Pokemon discovered through Sevii Islands, get a lot of money with Pay Day, hunt for Moon Stones by my CH'DNG using Thief. I think it's more telling of how little activity there is on this thread

    I recently managed to find one of those old e-Reader cards that can be scanned to make a special trainer appear in Ruby and Sapphire, which I hadn't been able to do before despite playing the games for more than a decade. The thing is, you don't win money or gain experience from those trainers, which makes the function seem highly redundant and nothing more than a watered-down Battle Tower battle. And speaking of the Battle Tower, I defeated a set of seven trainers there on Ruby version a week ago just to see if my team consisting of Raikou, Latios, and Entei would do well. The experiment was a success from the look of how easy it was to win.

    I now want to start replaying Sapphire version just for the thrill of going through the Houen region once again.

    I bought a copy of Leaf Green around Christmas to add it to my "collection" of Pokemon games. A few days ago I decided to play through this game because I haven't actually played Gen 1 remakes in over 5 years and they are actually my favorite remakes and some of my favorite Pokemon games in general. I started the journey a few days ago so I'll do a little recap since I'm already getting ready to face Erika for my fourth Gym badge.

    I started with a Bulbasaur because Venusaur is my favorite starter and I had a cool new idea for Bulbasuar's nickname because of the show I've been watching recently. So I named my Bulbasuar Yoda because its face kinda reminds me of baby Yoda a little and when it evolves into a Venusaur it looks old and wise just like old Yoda was. Maybe you guys disagree and think that it's not that good/clever of a nickname as I think it is but I enjoy it nonetheless.
    I then caught a Pidgey and defeated Brock. Pidgey evolves into a Pidgeotto and Bulbasaur evolves into an Ivysaur. Then in Mt. Moon I caught a Clefairy since I never used one in a playthrough before and I grew to like this Pokemon a lot in the last few years so i wanted to finally use one. I then proceeded to beat Misty and Lt. Surge and make my way towards Lavender Town. Ivysaur evolves into a Venusaur. I wanted to catch my next team member in Pokemon Tower but before I could do that I had to go and get the Silph Scope in Celedon City. While there I pick up an Eevee and since it turned out to be a Modest Eevee I decided to add it to the team and later evolve it into a Vaporeon. I beat Giovanni and before going back to Lavender Town I decided to challenge the Celedon Gym first since I'm already here.
    We are all caught up now!

    Here is my team right now before I go and face Erika for my fourth Gym Badge:
    - Venusaur (M)/Yoda Lv. 34
    - Pidgeotto (F)/Hera Lv. 33
    - Clefairy (F)/Selene Lv. 33
    - Eevee (M)/Atlan Lv. 29

    Just a quick tale of woe - a trainer in the Battle Arena has just sent out a shiny Girafarig against me in my Emerald game. That's not fair - I want one!
