    I played the Gen 4 games even more than the Gen 7 games recently. I excluded Diamond and Pearl, 'cause I never really played those games and I heard a lot of negative stuff about those games, such as it being too slow and pretty bad pacing. But enough about that! I wanna know what you did in your playthrough of Platinum and HGSS to beat both games. I'll also tell you what I did in my playthrough of those games.(Keep in mind, Sere's rules apply in this thread as well.)

    Hmm currently playing both Soul Silver and Platinum right now. As I type but in the past and now;

    For Sinnoh:
    - Most play throughs I choose an Infernape since there are 0 fire types in Sinnoh ever. Ponyta is nice sure but..
    - HM slave Bidoof every time.
    - Usually bringing a staraptor w me no matter what.
    - Grinding. Tons of grinding.

    I didn't have too many strategies in D/P/Pt: I mainly used Shinou Pokemon on my teams however, and I traded over some Lucky Eggs in Pearl from Platinum a few years ago to make leveling up faster.

    I usually catch a Starly as soon as I get my first few PokeBalls, then raise it all the way into Staraptor. In Platinum, I often catch Magikarp with the Old Rod on Route 218 and slap the Exp. Share on it when I reach Eterna City. Other Pokemon I often raise are Rotom, Weavile, Gallade, Floatzel, Roserade (if I don't choose Turtwig as my starter), or rarely, I evolve Eevee I get from Bebe into Espeon.
    In HG/SS, I always pick either Totodile or Cyndaquil as my starter. I then catch a Spearow at Route 46 and raise it into Fearow. I often use Chinchou/Lanturn, Nidoking, Espeon, and catch Heracross as soon as I meet the Headbutt guy. With Brick Break, it destroys Whitney's Miltank easily.

    I did this on Diamond, Pearl, and my Japanese Platinum as well. However, when I played Platinum in English, I decided to use a Togekiss as my team's Flying-type.

    I traded my entire teams between SS and Platinum. Game became Gen 6/7 easy for me.
