    So, started my first journey ever in the region of Kalos. After playing with my new character for a while and watching the gorgeous graphics of the 3ds, went out of the village, and meet those guys who says are my new friends. One of them gave me my first pokemon in the region.

    I picked Fennekin which came with Magician ability and went to Santaune Forest. Decided to catch a Huge Power Bunnelby and a Gale wings Fletching while I was on route 2 and inside the forest decided to catch a Scatterbug.

    Once I reached Santalune City, and after exploring every corner enjoying how beautiful everything is in Kalos fought a trainer in the doors of Viola's gym who gave me rollers. Tried Viola's gym, and my team was roflstomped so went to route 22 and trained my team a bit more.

    After some hours grinding, I managed to finally beat her not before giving me a lot of headche because her tactics.

    Now I'm at the fountain of route 4. My jorney has just started.

    Fennekin lvl 20
    Bunnelby lvl 16
    Fletchinder lvl 20
    Vivillion lvl 15

    After 55 hours I managed to finish Pokemon X. Fought against the E4, and finally the champion was revealed: Diantha. Sadly it wasn't a very present character through my journey, nor against Team Flare. Nothing. Just a few lines while I was in Luminose and thats it. Very dissapointing, so it wasn't that exciting to fight against her. Anyway, after some serious fight, I beat her so after almost 5 years of patience I was the Champion of my 6th region: Kalos.

    After that, a nice surprise was to see how Sycamore planned a event to celebrate I was the new Champion in the middle of Luminose, with a lot of people, and those guys who said they were my friends, which they weren't at all. Maybe after like 50 hours I started to appreciate Serena and Trevor. But Shauna and Tierno were obnoxious and annoying through all my journey. And useless. Very useless.

    My team went through several phases, but this was that which took me to the peak:


    In the race I used Vivillion, Pancham and Clawitzer, but none of them were capable of being funny or powerfull enough to make it through the end

    And now, I started my jorney to lvl 100 all my champion team, catch legendaries, battle on Battle Maison and make a living dex as always want to do, and fail lol. At the moment I managed to catch Mewtwo and Zygarde. And I was busy finding berries I found Zapdos two times, but is still fleeing. I'm hoping to catch him soon

    i spent a bunch of time on pkmn X today unlike the last year or so where i barely touched gen6 aside from getting "supplies" from gen6. since ive given up on gen 7 i decided to go back to gen 6. took the time to work on a few bred pokemon from long ago and make them battle ready. got a HA espeon ready, a 2nd Gardevoir for my OR file and took the time to train the strongest pokemon ever.

    the strongest pokemon is a jolly iron fist Ledian, with power up punch, drain punch, ice punch and u turn. the IVs are a whopping total of 7. its highest IV is a 7 in DEF and the remaining are all at 0 IVs LOL. i bred this out long ago trying to get a 6 0IV pokemon.

    The SS news got me in a mood to basically restart most of my games. Not sure why I decided to go with Gen6. Probably the first game I was in my drawer lol. I fired up a new game of Y.

    I havent planned my team at all. I wanted to use some Pokemon that I havent used before or havent used in a long time. I figured Wonder Trade would help with that just a little. I received some interesting pokemon, a lot I have used recently and a lot of Zigzagoons and Bunnelbys. Along with Pokemon thar were just too high leveled so back into the wonder world they go. I received a Level 2 Aerodactyl which I felt was a gift from the heavens. Long with Pikachu, Spheal, and Riolu. I figured this was a nice team to start of my journey. I plan to wing the team as I go.

    I enter my world and after running into my new group of friends, it was time for me to pick my new starter Pokemon. I went with Chespin. I won't be keeping Chespin, only until the first city when I can reach a CPU.

    Restarted Y version to prep for Sword and Shield since the regions look pretty closely connected. Still not sure how much of Kalos we're going to see in the new games but I enjoy the region in these, even if the story hasn't been as impactful as other games so far. Got 2 badges and my team consists of:


    I'm torn and I'm curious if y'all can help me out. It looks like I'll be getting both a Shiny Stone and an Eviolite very soon. Which between Roselia and Floette should I evolve?

    Depends on the colour of your Floette, for me. If it is red or blue,go for Florges. If not, go for Roserade.

    Or, if you're keen on both, evolve both? :D

    I'm going through X again (technically for the first time since my last Kalos run was on Y). I just beat Grant. I've been using Vivillon up 'til now because I thought it could learn Fly and I want to incorporate my Fly user into my team early. Spoiler: it cannot learn Fly. Cue mad scramble onto the AttackDex to see what can learn Fly. Almost everything was a Pokemon I've already used before and didn't feel like training again, or Pokemon that don't evolve until towards the endgame (Golurk, Braviary, Volcarona). I eventually settled on Crobat. I already used one before, but Poison/Flying fits well into my team, and it was the most appealing option I had that didn't involve breeding in other games and abusing Pokemon Bank.

    I had SUCH a difficult time working with Azurill. It would NOT evolve no matter what I did. Azumarill learnes Aqua Tail at level 21, so level 20 was my deadline. Azurill did not make it. I had to go back and catch a new one with a Luxury Ball (once I realized I had some) and train the new one up from scratch. It evolved into Marill at level 20 (caught somewhere around level 7). Now it's a powerhouse, but it shouldn't be that hard to evolve a baby!

    EDIT: The endgame team is composed of Chesnaught, Crobat, Azumarill, Meowstic F, Tyrantrum, and Pyroar.

    Since starting new On Y I preplanned a team of Pokemon that I either am a big fan of or havent used in a long time. I wont reveal the list, just as i post. Of course things can change along the way if i maybe find something else along the way. I am going to implement a few rules for this run.

    Since all the gym leaders use 3 Pokemon, so will I. I am only allowed to enter a gym with 3 Pokemon in my party. Also absolutely no healing items during battle, no exceptions. If anyone else has any suggestions feel free to list them! I'll be boxing my starter. Froakie for those wondering. We will start the journey telling from Santalune City.

    Headed over to Rt 22 to the east to do a little training. First Pokemon I ran into was a Male Litleo..go figure when I don't plan on using one. Battled a few trainers, made quick work of them even though a few had a type advantage in the form of a Goldeen and Marill. Still it wasn't enough to take out my Charmander. Knowing that I have the type advantage at Level 11 I planned to take on the Santalune Gym.

    Viola threw a few tests at me early. Random trainers and their pathetic bug types couldnt stand much of a chance. As I battled my way to the leader, Charmander grew stronger and stronger with every victory.

    I stood before Viola, my first true test. She tried to blind and distract me with her fancy cameras but to no avail, I was ready for this. She opend with Surskit, not ideal but Charmander was ready for this. I knew I had to make quick work of Surskit before it set up Water Sport, unfortunately it was able to get one off. After a Dragon Pulse ended Surskit, Vivillon was up. It set up Infestation on before Charmander can get off a Dragon Pulse again. Charmander eventually fell to the slow hits of Infestation, although greatly weakening Vivillon. My final Pokemon, Leafeon was sent in to finish to job. One Quick Attack was able to earn me victory and my first badge in Kalos.


    Charmander lvl 14
    Leafeon lvl 12

    Not sure how long until I add my 3rd team member

    Decided to download X, once again, off the Eshop.

    Chose the FC, because let’s face it the male’s clothing options are clearly lacking. With the exception of my starter, I’m trying to use a team mostly comprised of Pokémon I haven’t used before or finished X/Y with. Which shouldn’t be too hard since I’ve only finished the games about 3/4 times.

    Received a Quirky Chespin who I’ve yet to name. Currently in the forest, catching Pokémon to fill up the dex.

    I had a weird urge to play these games last weekend so I picked up Y and restarted it. I had planned on using Chespin but for some reason when it came time to choose I went with Froakie. I hurried along to Route 3 where I wanted to catch my second team member...a female Burmy. No joke it took me over a hour to find one. I found 5 male Burmy before finding the female. All that did was make me dread going for my third team member...a male Litleo. But then my third Litleo was male. Crazy.

    I had no problems with Viola since Surskit never set up Water Sport. I went north through Route 4 into Lumiose City where I met the Professor and got a second starter which went straight to the PC. I quickly skated through Route 5 and did the Parfum Palace side quest so I could venture onto Route 7 and capture my fourth team member, a Spritzee. I fought some painters and arrived at the Zubat cave where I evolved my Burmy into Sandy Forme Wormadam. Next I made a quick stop in Ambrette Town before slowly riding a Rhyhorn to go talk a guy about fossils or something. I picked up the Sail Fossil and revived it into Amaura...my fifth team member! Next I skated over to Cyllage City and went ahead and traded with myself to evolve Spritzee into Aromatisse. Then I was off to challenge Grant. Litleo and Wormadam struggled against his Amaura so Frogadier came in to finish it off. I wasn't gonna mess around with Tyrunt so I had Aromatisse knock it out with Draining Kiss. I took a break after receiving my second badge.

    It's been 3000 years.. Sorry had to reference that, but It's then I did start my play though of X back in 2013, just after I completed Y. So After 2445 days, I've become the champion. Most of the delay was due to the fact this was my "also ran" game, and other games and stuff took over. I've beaten many of other games since.

    So The Party:
    Raichu - Lv68
    Flygon - Lv63
    "Kleinson" Lucario - Lv71 (Named after the Girl in My avatar and this saves character.)
    "Agro" Charizard - Lv70 (Named after Kritzkast Host Agro, who mains Pyro in TF2.)
    Greninja - Lv72
    Noctowl - Lv61

    I started a new game in Y as a sequel/continuation to my Sword game. I haven't finished a Kalos game since 2013, and even then I never completed the Looker plot, so while X & Y are my least favorite pokemon games I wanted to replay them so I can try and finish all the way through this time.

    After spending months getting legit pokemon based on the ones I caught in Galar, Go, & the Isle of Armor (using my completed Omega Ruby game), I sped through the game up to Camphrier Town & Parfume Palace since I wanted the story to "start off" in Lumiose City & bypass a lot of the plot elements in the beginning of the game. I then backtracked to Santalune City to try cutting a few trees & caught a Litleo. Now I'm waiting in the garden on Route 6 for several berries I planted to grow. I'm considering my gym battle with Viola non canon since it happened when I was speeding through the beginning of the game, so my eventual battle with Grant as my first "official" Kalos gym battle & then I'll face Viola later in the Battle Chateau

    That's a whole lot of 'pretending/treating something' as something else. :p

    Heck, I might as well post my Sword runthrough here, since I'm pretending that I'm also still finishing up the Looker-plot. :p
