Hi all! This is my first post here, nice to meet you all! I've just finished my first run of rejuvenation on normal and I really enjoyed it, so now I've decided to try again...but just a little bit more difficult this time round. I'll be playing on intense, and just to make things a little more interesting I'll be doing a mono-normal run. The rules will be as follows: Set mode, no items in battle and all standard competitive clauses in place, i.e sleep clause, species clause, OHKO clause and so on. Only normal types are or those with a normal type in their evo line (e.g eeveelutions, azumarill). I'll extend species clause to only use one from each evo line in my team at any one time, so I can't just use a team full of eeveelutions. Breeding is allowed, but no egg moves that can only be obtained from non-normal types can be used. All team members must be nicknamed! This will not be a nuzlocke, I'm nowhere near crazy enough to try that yet, but I still think it'll be a challenge! Depending on how this goes I might do some more runs in future, most likely with harder monotypes and further restrictions, but for now we'll stick with this. Anyway, the lucky victim of this run will be Emma (Aevia) because I'm feeling kinda cute today. I'll probably post updates every now and then, most likely after each significant fight. Stay tuned! p.s: be heroes and pray for Angie to go away xoxo Links to segments (updated 15/07/21):
Hi there! I am currently doing a Normal Monotype run on Set Mode with no healing items in battle (because I'm a masochist). The difficulty is Normal. I'm at an impasse with Ryland/Flora and was hoping for ideas. The guys I currently have in my party/PC are: Stoutland Pyroar Dodrio Diggersby Heliolisk Ditto Noctowl Snorlax Kecleon Oranguru Sawsbuck Persian Castform Fearow Bibarel Miltank Exploud They all have optimal natures and good IVs. In terms of other obtainable things that might be useful, I think I can get Staraptor at this point in the game but I'm not sure? I've gotten close to victory but not quite so I was hoping to see if any of you have a galaxy brain strat I'm missing. Thanks in advance wonderful people!
This is a list that shows at a quick look what different Pokemon are available at any given time in game in a monotype run. Each spoiler is a new badge length of the game, including the most readily available member of the evolution line of the Pokemon, and does not mention Pokemon available in previous areas. Italics indicate Pokemon that will evolve into a type. Underline indicates Pokemon that will lose that type by their final evolution (mainly, for collecting, unless you want to use badge 17 Azurill for Normal type) Bold indicates legendary Pokemon **Asterisks** indicate Pokemon who are available by chance or choice earlier in the game, then reliably again later in the game. If you miss a chance or want all options of a choice, follow the asterisks to the second usage. Strikethrough indicates Pokemon which will have a mega-evolution that changes into the target type, such as Sceptile -> Dragon. Whether or not these are legal for your monotype run are up to you. All types that do not feature any new Pokemon will be listed at the bottom of each spoiler tag. Suggested Rules for a Monotype Run: 1. You can only use Pokemon of a single type for all battles. Pokemon that will evolve into a type may be used, but must be evolved by the end of the run. Optional: other typed mons can be used for: HM usage, field transformations for quests, catching Pokemon, 'impossible' boss battles. 2. If you're playing with a type that doesn't have any starters that will evolve into it, you must choose a starter and then ditch it in the PC once you catch your new Pokemon and it is able to put up a fight. Other rules are at your discretion, have fun with it!

About three months ago, I was discussing with a friend about pokemon, so chat went to our most hated typings, to which (ofc) I chose bug, which I absolutely hated with a passion, apart from a couple exceptions (looking at you Butterfree <3). So, he wanted to make a bet that I wouldn't be able to beat Current episode of Pokemon Reborn by using only Bug types. Of course, I couldn't say no to such a challenge, and I accepted (bracing my heart to use pokemon I didn't like at all till then...). So, I began my playthrough, after running some research on Bulbapedia to not be a complete noob... Character name: Angel Sex: Non-binary Since I don't have the know-how to hack a bug-type starter for me, I decided to pick one based on breeding purposes. And since bug types lack (till gen VI) a good water type, I decided to pick Squirtle in order to breed Hydro Pump on a Surskit! My squirtle had great IVs, which was a great start for the game. I named her Respect (cause I'll eventually store her in box, but I'll always respect her) and she defeated easily Cain's Nidoran and Victoria's Tepig, before heading outside to get my first little bug... And, oh, the joy! It was a shiny Spinarak. And it has a 30 Attack IV, god damn! I caught her and named her Happiness. This run honestly couldn't have started any better! By wandering around I saved the Zigzagoon from the Bridge, it learned headbutt, so I managed to get a Combee (took ages of Headbutting a tree, I even found a shiny male Combee, fml, I know) and a Pineco as well. I also got a couple Burmy's but I never liked the idea of using Wormadam, so I boxed them. I also picked Kelly's Kricketot and a couple more catches, in the form of shiny Caterpie and Wurmple. Soon, I had a team consisting of: Valor, the Pineco (Male) Careful/Sturdy Protect Bug Bite Take Down Self-Destruct Valiant, the Kricketune (Male) Bold/Swarm Growl Bide Struggle Bug Fury Cutter Braveheart, the Butterfree (Male) Timid/Tinted Lens Confusion Sleep Powder Stun Spore Gust Patience, the Dustox (Male) Calm/Compound Eyes Gust Confusion Poison Powder Moonlight Happiness, the Spinarak (Female) Hardy/Sniper Poison Sting Leech Life Night Shade Scary Face Royalty, the Combee (Female) Bold/Honey Gather Sweet Scent Gust Bug Bite The evolutions were the result of grinding, destroying Fern's ass outside one of the two factories (the wrong one, idiot was waiting at the wrong place, then blaming others for his incompetence) and struggling through double battles in the correct factory... I don't know which was worse, having to survive Rock Tombs of Arons and Roggenrollas or admit that Fern carried me through that hell. At least I made it up to him by managing to handle the Magby while he was using Growth for 27 times in a row and getting annihilated. Bless the Lord for Night Shade, Spinarak saved the day, as well as Dustox with Poison Powder/Moonlight Stall. So, after that and with the aforementioned team, I went happily to fight Julia... VS JULIA Happily before the fight... I swear, this fight gets harder every time I replay Reborn. She leads with Helioptile and proceeds to Glare at my Valor, who is the slowest thing on Earth anyways! My Pinecone... errr Pineco, escapes through Paralysis and takes down Helioptile with a Bug Bite spam. Then, Julia sends in her first (small) ball of doom, and I consider it a good time to stack up Fury Cutter with Valiant. My Kricketune takes down Voltorb and wastes Julia's first potion with 3 Fury Cutters, but is in the red, so I swap him with Braveheart, who has to face the second Voltorb. Voltorb and Butterfree exchange Charge Beams and Confusions, but thank God, it gets zero Sp.Atk. boosts, and Julia has to waste a potion to take down my Braveheart. I send in Happiness, happy that I will just Night Shade and kill it... NOPE! This round m***fucker decides to explode, killing my spider and itself in the process.... There goes my easy fixed damage on Electrode plan! Julia sends in Emolga, so I say "Fuck this shit" to myself, and send in Combee to take a shot, as I heal Valor to full HP. Combee dies to 1 Acrobatics and my Pineco lives another Acrobatics with Sturdy, to perform the sequel of the previous round. It Self-Destructs in the face of the flying ele squirrel, killing himself, and its opponent! Dustox single-handedly kills Blitzle by an alteration of Poison Powder, Confusion and Moonlight, while I wonder why the Flame Charge isn't even taking half of Dustox's HP... This thing is a legit God! Finally, Electrode comes in. It is my third attempt, so I know that I need some luck. I leave Dustox in, and Poison Powder it, getting the damage going. At least, Julia has used her 2 potions already. Electrode Decides to go for Charge Beam, but fails to get the stat boost, as I start using Confusion/Moonlight in turns. However, it begins to Rollout (please miss, ffs) and in 3 turns, my Dustox is murdered from full HP... I send in my Kricketune, who has about 8 HP. AND YES, ROLLOUT MISSES! Knowing that if I attack it with Fury Cutter, Aftermath will probably cost me the win, I had selected Struggle Bug in advance. It leaves the Electrode with 7 HP and Poison Powder damage secures the kill, granting me my first badge (highly useful), my first TM (Charge Beam, highly useless) and a sleepy ex-cheerleader. I scream YES-YES like a maniac though, since it was my 3rd attempt to beat her and I start to get hopes that mono-Bug might be possible actually! Hugely surprised by Dustox's resillience and by Pineco's and Combee's sacrifices! Bugs gaining my respect! Now I shall go take care of weird plants that wreak havoc, as Victoria informs me... Good luck myself! PS. Stay tuned, and feel free to provide any feedback guys and girls! Hope you enjoy!
