RBY Progress Thread!
« on: February 29, 2016, 16:01 »
Not had a good thread like this for a while, so... what version did you get and where are you now?

Blue version as I had a Red and Yellow back in the day and fancied a change...

Current team:
Bulbasaur (S) level 11
Butterfree (Flora) level 10
Rattata (Roland) level 10

Meant to name my Bulbasaur "Sprout" but screwed up and couldn't be bothered restarting so S it is. I'll change it when I get to the Name Rater... maybe. Just about to take on Brock! Spent a while levelling up Butterfree because for some reason I thought it learned Confusion upon evolving but apparently it's at level 12 instead. I might spend a bit longer levelling up since it's only another two levels. It'll be interesting to see how I get on with Blue all these years later rather than blindly fumbling through Red as a n00b all those years ago! Already the Viridian Forest was easier than I recall since I just switched Bulbasaur to hoover up all those Poison Stings.

Provisionally planning my team to be Venusaur, Cloyster, Clefable, Rhydon, Jynx and an as yet undecided Fire type (maybe Magmar) but it'll no doubt end up completely different.

Last time played red I borrowed it from my friend but wasn't allowed to overwrite his file so only got up to mt moon :( never actually completed the original so it'll be fun.

No idea what my team is going to be yet! I'm just training up some more for Brock.

Leafz - Bulbasaur lvl 10
Rico - Nidoran m lvl 8
Pika - Pikachu lvl 5

Was only getting goddamn kakunas for ages and then my first non kakuna was a Pikachu 😌

I had Blue and Yellow as a kid so I decided to get Red this time and maybe Yellow later. Training for Brock now. My team so far:

SmolDragon - Charmander lvl 8
BirbFriend - Pidgey lvl 6

Not sure what my team will be, but I will have a Cubone and a Ghastly. Not sure what their names will be yet.
When it comes down to it, the difference between healing and necromancy is timing.

Finally got round to setting up personal hotspot and downloading Blue. It hurt my phone p bad.

I've just left town with my little bubby Squirtle named Levi. I don't have a team planned but I am ready to take on the world.

I can't believe RBY were released 50 weeks before I was born. I started playing Pokemon with my brother's copy of Gold which he gave to me when FireRed came out. It's incredible how far graphics have come but also how good they already were even 20 years ago. I am loving life. Loving life.

Ephraim - Ivysaur - lv23
Shaq - Kadabra - lv 20
Eirika - Pidgeotto - lv23
Mew - lv23. As yet to be named because my battery was dying, but when I get to Lavender town...

I've just beaten Surge. Doug used Dig because I am a hilarious individual.

Well did she make you cry? Make you break down?
Shatter your illusions of love?
And is it over now? Do you know how
To pick up the pieces and go home?

On Blue, and I am running with:

Squirtle
Beedrill (Weedles are so much harder to find in Blue, but I very rarely leave Vidrian Forest without one.)
Nidoran Male
Pikachu
Spearow
Jigglypuff

I'm really enjoying it, to be honest it's better than my hazy memroies of it being buggy, slow and ugly (expect that Wigglytuff sprite.  What.)

I'm at Mt. Moon so far, will be doing the Mew glitch soon.  Probably going to buy Yellow/Red when I get paid next month.

Cabbage (Bulbasaur) - Level 9

I have a rough idea of what I want my team to be and it's a lot of mid-late game stuff sadly.

Cerulean City! Just got myself a Mew (thanks early mew glitch) and doing some levelling up before going to take on Misty.

Team is now

Ivysaur (S) lv 18
Butterfree (Flora) lv 17
Rattata (Roland) lv 16
Clefairy (Cliff) 16

God I spent so long hunting for a Clefairy and managed to catch one with my very last pokeball. I will never set foot in Mount Moon again. Rattata is proving much more useful that I expected... Quick Attack/ Hyper Fang are pretty useful for dispatching the opposition!

So six hours in and I've only just gotten to Vermillion City... spent more time messing about with the Mew/Trainer-Fly glitch than I have actually playing the game. Amongst other things I've caught another Mew, a Gengar, a Nidoqueen... and two new additions to my team!

Rhyhorn (Fluffy) lv 12
Lapras (Nessie) lv 12

Encountering Lapras was a very pleasant surprise and I might have it on my team instead of the planned Cloyster... despite always liking Lapras I've never really bothered with it apart from training one for contests in OR (which I then accidentally Wonder Traded away) and getting a Rhyhorn this early was really handy too so I don't have to spend ages in the Safari Zone later.

I'm at the S.S. Anne and my team's looking pretty okay so far.

SmolDragon - Charmeleon lv 22
Birbfriend - Pidgeotto lv 22
Undyne - Gyarados lv 21
PsyCat - Kadabra lv 22

Magikarp was such a pain to train but so worth it. Abra actually wasn't nearly as bad. I did have other members on my team, but they were planned to be temporary when I caught them. I would not have been able to beat Brock without Butterflu the Butterfree or Misty without Loyalty the Pikachu. (about butterflu and Loyalty's names, Butterflu was because I was going to call it Papillon, the french word for butterfly, but couldn't remember how to spell it so I had to look it up and misspelled butterfly as butterflu, so I decided why not. For Loyalty, my first pokemon game was Yellow, and FirstFriend wouldn't fit.)
