    We all know that SV has been out for a good while and I've been quite fascinated by a certain group of "new Pokémon" (?). But unfortunately, I don't even have Switch, let alone the games. So here I am, (re-)playing Ultra Sun but only limiting myself to...
    ...the contemporary version of Paradox Pokemon:

    Since Ultra Sun doesn't have Foongus, Phanpy and Deino lines in-game, I'll start out with their eggs hacked in (yes, I play in emulator). And yes, Iron Valiant is a robotized fusion of Gardevoir and Gallade, so I'll try to figure their names out if all the mons were to be named after their paradox versions.

    05/29/2023 edit: While it's possible to get Suicune and Virizion in the game, I'll need both Raikou (Ultra Sun exclusive) and Entei (Ultra Moon exclusive) in my party for the former. The only way for me to do so is hacking an Entei in my savefile (I don't have Ultra Moon), so... yeah, not worth the effort.

    By the way, my in-game name here is Juliana. Haven't decided on my temporary starter yet because it will affect Hau's starter whether I like it or not, so lemme put a poll up real quick...

    12/11/2022 edit: Y'know what, screw the poll's deadline, I'm starting the game now. Still need to thank whomever this lone vote came from, though.

    And now, if y'all excuse me, I need to get my girl to her first Pokecenter ASAP. ;)

    As soon as I hatched the eggs (Great Tusk the shiny Phanpy, Iron Treads the normal Phanpy, Brute Bonnet the Foongus, and Iron Jugulis the Deino) and nabbed a Magnemite named Sandy Shocks, I boxed my Litten and attended the local Trainers' School as an exchange student (?) considering the MC's background and all. Forgot most of the details, but I do remember Bonnet taking on the teacher's Popplio. I might get it wrong, though. :sweat:

    Fast forwarding through the plot (can't exactly remember what I did while fighting the first Skull grunt and Ilima either :sweat:), got myself a Makuhita named Iron Hands in Route 2. It was the earliest I could get a Makuhita and I plan to get the rest of my allowed mons as soon as I find one no matter how rare (*cough* Bagon *cough*) or tedious (*cough* Misdreavus *cough*) it might be. And yes, Misdreavus is only available in Poke Pelago here, so I've been catching other mons just to expand it later on. ;)

    Once I got to the Verdant Cavern, the first trial began in earnest. Jugulis' Dragon Rage was indispensable here.
    Turn 1
    • Sandy: Thunder Wave
    • Totem Gumshoos: Paralyzed

    Turn 2 (ally Yungoos summoned)
    • Sandy: Thunder Wave on Yungoos

    • Ally Yungoos: Leer
    • Totem Gumshoos: Scary Face

    Turn 4

    • Totem Gumshoos: Paralyzed
    • Ally Yungoos: Pursuit

    Turn 5
    • Sandy: Thunder Shock on Gumshoos
    • Ally Yungoos: Pursuit
    • Totem Gumshoos: Scary Face

    Turn 6
    • Ally Yungoos: Pursuit
    • Totem Gumshoos: Bite (Sandy down)

    • Ally Yungoos: Odor Sleuth

    Turn 8
    • Jugulis: Dragon Rage on Yungoos (Yungoos down)

    By the time I finished the first trial, Professor Kukui was in full panic mode because he lost Lillie's track at Route 3. Shouldn't hurt to help out, I guess. Turned out she was in the Melemele Meadow, still chasing Nebby who made their way into a nearby cave -- Seaward Cave, was it? I wanna do a Delibird hunt there but Dulse of the Ultra Recon Squad just had to get in my way.
    Turn 1
    • Dulse's Furfrou: Baby-Doll Eyes
    • Tusk: High Horsepower (miss)

    Turn 2
    • Dulse's Furfrou: Headbutt
    • Tusk: Rollout

    Turn 3
    • Dulse's Furfrou: Sand Attack
    • Tusk: Rollout

    Turn 4

    Turn 9

    • Jugulis: Dark Pulse (miss)

    Turn 10
    • Dulse's Furfrou: Sand Attack
    • Jugulis: Dragon Rage (Furfrou down)

    Thankfully though, the game allowed me to stay for my Delibird hunt -- and got one which I named Iron Bundle. I then got out of the cave with Nebby in tow and... bumped into Hau. Great. Battle time.
    Turn 1
    • Sandy: Thunder Shock
    • Hau's Rowlet: Peck

    Turn 2
    • Sandy: Thunder Shock
    • Hau's Rowlet: Astonish

    • Bonnet: Body Slam

    Turn 9
    • Hau's Pikachu: Growl
    • Bonnet: Body Slam (Pikachu down)

    That said, everyone made their way back to Iki Town. But me? I took my time for a Bagon hunting along the way. So one Bagon (nicknamed Roaring Moon) and some grinding later, I finally caught up for Juliana's first grand trial.
    Turn 1
    • Moon: Headbutt
    • Hala's Machop: Revenge

    Turn 2
    • Hala's Machop: Focus Energy
    • Moon: Headbutt

    Turn 3

    Turn 4 (Hands and Hala's Makuhita out)
    • Hands: Fake Out
    • Hala's Makuhita: Flinched

    • Hala's Crabrawler: Leer

    Turn 15
    • Hala's Crabrawler: Leer
    • Bonnet: Mega Drain (Crabrawler down)

    Sooo... yeah. Had to train everyone up to level 20 after several outtakes -- and worth it. And Juliana got a Tauros ride for all the trouble. :thumbsup:

    By the way, I'm trying to get my girl's outfit to be as close as possible to Juliana's uniform in Scarlet due to Ultra Sun's available clothing colors (I would've done its Violet version if this were Ultra Moon). You're welcome. ;)
