    Yeah, I know, this isn't really a challenge run of any kind, but many people want to keep track of this playthrough, so I thought making a thread for it would be appropriate! The team members are:

    [member='Blisca']
    [member='Bloom']
    [member='Magpaeonia']
    [member='YouHoney']
    [member='Nature Lady']
    [member='Synerjee']

    Sorry for mentioning you all again, but this is so that I don't have to spam the "what's your team" thread all the time, this way you'll all know this exists :D

    Anyway, here's the current team again:

    [3D='tangela'] Blisca (5)
    [3D='flabebe'] Bloom (5)
    [3D='starly'] Magpae (5)
    [3D='chimchar'] YouHoney (5)
    [3D='froakie'] Nature Lady (5)
    [3D='joltik'] Synerjee (5)

    What kind of challenge is this? A wonderlocke? Because I don't recall ever being able to get chimchar in ORAS. Good luck anyway! :)

    So, off to the start...

    Here's a quick summary of every member and their actions up until the first gym:

    - Synerjee is having a few start-up issues, due to a lack of good usable moves at this point in the game, but she is great at taking out Team Magma's Poochyena. I'm sure she'll gain some great moves in the near future. As for now, she's stuck with a couple of Bug type moves, as well as Thunder Wave, but that's fine!

    - Magpae is out for murdering bugs all the time, it's her favorite thing to do. She also has a very passionate love for herself. She often bores the others by talking about how great she is, all the time. It never stops...

    - Bloom mainly stays in the background, but is great in battle too. For the tiny Pokémon that she is, she's capable of taking quite some hits from stronger foes, and she doesn't back down if she is sent in a fight. She played a good role in the first gym battle, taking quite some hits from the Nosepass while I tried to heal up Blisca some more.

    - YouHoney really enjoys teasing the others, rather than participating in fights himself. That's probably because he doesn't have a lot of good moves to show his battle skills quite yet, but he doesn't want to admit that himself, obviously. Maybe he'll make a big comeback later, but for now, he's kind of lagging behind.

    - Blisca was the hero of the first Gym, with Sleep Powder and Giga Drain right from the beginning. That combination is so deadly, it makes her nearly invincible. She's going real strong this early in the game, especially for the derpy Pokémon that Tangela is of course!

    - Nature Lady can deal some decent damage, but isn't too good at taking hits. A couple of hits and she's almost down to zero health already. She needs a few more levels to really get going, but when faced against an opponent who is weak against her Bubble, she will destroy them mercilessly.

    HOWEVER, there was one thing that I noticed while playing... All of the Pokémon on my team are traded over from my Alpha Sapphire file, so they aren't originally from me... So when I reached level 10, everyone started to completely disobey me >.< This is going to be really hard to keep everyone under the max level, because it basically means I literally can't grind anymore... Oh well x_x

    The current team:
    [3D='tangela'] Blisca (12)
    [3D='flabebe'] Bloom (11)
    [3D='starly'] Magpae (10)
    [3D='chimchar'] YouHoney (10)
    [3D='froakie'] Nature Lady (12)
    [3D='joltik'] Synerjee (12)

    UPDATE NUMBER TWO \o/

    - Blisca has an extremely powerful Giga Drain, it's unbelievable. She's also still packing Sleep Powder, which makes her currently one of the best Pokémon on my team. Recently, Poison Powder was also added to her moveset, so hell is spread upon who dares to challenge her.

    - Bloom has a think for hitting herself in confusion, she does it literally all the time. But when she's not doing that, she's hitting opponents hard with her Fairy Wind. She was the main star of the second gym, easily taking out Brawly's Pokémon and resisting all incoming attacks.

    - Magpae is the first Pokémon to actually evolve during this playthrough! She now has the powerful Intimidate, so most Pokémon will flee just by looking at her, much to her liking. She's really strong, and will kill anything that opposes her in battle!

    - YouHoney has also involved since last time, gaining the additional Fighting type! As the only male member on my team (which I didn't realize until now), he has quite something to represent, but he's doing a great job at that. Nothing bad to say here either!

    - Nature Lady is the third and final evolved Pokémon up until now! As a Frogadier, she's now able to hit really hard with Water Pulse, and many more great moves to come. Despite her Speed lowering nature, she still outspeeds most opponents, so there's nothing to worry about.

    - Synerjee is coming along just fine, though she's still not one of the strongest fighters. But with some more training, I'm sure she'll gain some great moves soon, and then the fun can really start. For now, Fury Cutter can build up some nice damage too, so it's not too bad.

    The current team:

    Here's the next team review:​
    [member='Blisca'] the Tangela
    [3D='tangela']​
    Destruction with dreadlocks
    [Level 25] [Serious Nature] [Somewhat vain]​
    - Rock Smash​
    - Poison Powder​
    - Sleep Powder​
    - Giga Drain​
    Blisca is one of the most powerful members of the team. She may only know one decent offensive move, but that's enough to destroy most opponents in one or two hits. She has saved me from many situation that otherwise may have been a problem, so I'm glad to have her on the team!​
    [member='Nature Lady'] the Frogadier
    [3D='frogadier']
    Mysterious and majestic
    [Level 25] [Brave Nature] [Alert to sounds]​
    - Pound​
    - Lick​
    - Water Pulse​
    - Quick Attack​
    Nature Lady does an excellent job at hitting opponents hard with Water Pulse. Thanks to her Attack boosting Nature, even Pound and Quick Attack should not be underestimated. She needs a few more levels to really get going, but whenever that time comes around, foes beware...​
    [member='Magpaeonia'] the Staravia
    [3D='staravia']​
    Self-proclaimed godess of power
    [Level 26] [Impish Nature] [Alert to sounds]​
    - Tackle​
    - Growl​
    - Quick Attack
    - Wing Attack​
    With Intimidate, most Pokémon would rather flee than fight against the amazing Magpae. She can deal a lot of damage with Wing Attack, and her STAB Normal type moves aren't bad at all either. She needs a couple more great moves to really get going, but then she'll destroy anything and everything in her path!​
    [member='Synerjee'] the Joltik
    [3D='joltik']​
    The cutest powerhouse alive
    [Level 26] [Sassy Nature] [Alert to sounds]​
    - Slash​
    - Bug Bite​
    - Fury Cutter
    - Thunder Wave​
    Synerjee suffers from a severe lack of good moves, but luckily she just got access to Slash, which should provide a good neutral coverage. Other than that, Fury Cutter can build up some really high power after a few turns, if she's able to survive that long. I can't wait until she gets an offensive Electric type move!​
    [member='Bloom'] the Floette
    [3D='floette']​
    Force of the flower
    [Level 25] [Naughty Nature] [Alert to sounds]​
    - Tackle​
    - Magical Leaf​
    - Fairy Wind
    - Lucky Chant​
    I'm really glad that Bloom learned Magical Leaf over Razor Leaf, because now she can finally start using her much higher Special Attack. Her Special Defense, although lowered by her Nature, is still really high, and she's definitely able to withstand a lot of incoming moves. Some more type coversage would be amazing, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.​
    [member='YouHoney'] the Monferno
    [3D='monferno']​
    The crazy fighter
    [Level 25] [Sassy Nature] [Takes plenty of siestas]​
    - Cut​
    - Mach Punch​
    - Flame Wheel
    - Fury Swipes​
    I feel like I don't use YouHoney a lot, but despite that, he's gaining levels just as fast as all the others. Flame Wheel is a great move (and it looks cool too), and Mach Punch does decent damage as well. I can only imagine really strong and powerful moves coming for him later in the game, to be a real powerhouse!​

    Here's the next team review:
    [member='Blisca'] the Tangrowth
    [​IMG]
    Destruction with dreadlocks
    [Level 41] [Serious Nature] [Somewhat vain]
    - Rock Smash
    - Ancient Power
    - Sleep Powder
    - Giga Drain
    I honestly completely forgot how much I liked Tangrowth, and this playthrough made me realize that again, It's so big and goofy and I love it! Blisca is doing great on the team, with super high Defense and Special Attack, she's capable of destroying a lot of foes. Perhaps I'll replace Sleep Powder or Ancient Power with better moves later on, but for now, she's a very solid member of the team!
    [member='Nature Lady'] the Greninja
    [​IMG]
    Mysterious and majestic
    [Level 37] [Brave Nature] [Alert to sounds]
    - Surf
    - Lick
    - Water Shuriken
    - Quick Attack
    This is actually my first time using the super popular Gen VI Water type starter, since I went with Fennekin myself, but it's definitely not a disappointment! Nature Lady is quite strong, defeating most foes with a single Surf. However, there's a major downside to being a Water type Pokémon in Hoenn, and that's the amount of HM's she'll have to learn. I'll try to replace those once I reach the Elite Four!
    [member='Magpaeonia'] the Staraptor
    [​IMG]
    Self-proclaimed godess of power
    [Level 39] [Impish Nature] [Alert to sounds]
    - Close Combat
    - Aerial Ace
    - Quick Attack
    - Fly
    Of all Pokémon on my team, Mag still has the biggest lack of great moves. Sure, Close Combat is awesome, but her STAB moves are rather weak, and should definitely be replaced with something stronger whenever I get the chance. Don't get me wrong, she is still an amazing Pokémon to fight with, the only problem is that her usability is limited.
    [member='Synerjee'] the Galvantula
    [​IMG]
    The cutest powerhouse alive
    [Level 38] [Sassy Nature] [Alert to sounds]
    - Slash
    - Signal Beam
    - Electro Ball
    - Thunder Wave
    Synerjee has had by far the biggest change in terms of viability on the team. At first, she was quite difficult to battle with, and I often had to rely to switch training to keep her up with the rest. However, everything took a sharp twist after her evolution. The Thunder Wave and Electro Ball combination is just perfect, and Signal Beam deals with pretty much everyone who doesn't care about her Electric attacks.
    [member='Bloom'] the Florges
    [​IMG]
    Force of the flower
    [Level 37] [Naughty Nature] [Alert to sounds]
    - Tackle
    - Magical Leaf
    - Moonblast
    - Grassy Terrain
    Moonblast is really all Bloom needs to destroy foes, but Magical Leaf is also there if she needs it. I'm really hoping to learn her Psychic later on, because my team has a severe lack of Psychic type moves, but that's not until Victory Road, so I'm out of luck until then. She fares well on the team, although not always the most viable choice. Fun fact: Bloom is actually a white-flowered Florges, but I couldn't get that sprite.
    [member='YouHoney'] the Infernape
    [​IMG]
    The crazy fighter
    [Level 37] [Sassy Nature] [Takes plenty of siestas]
    - Cut
    - Close Combat
    - Flame Wheel
    - Feint
    YouHoney definitely needs to work on his moves, because Flame Wheel really doesn't do that much anymore at this point in the game. A more powerful Fire type move is really all he needs for now. Perhaps also something instead of Feint, but I might have to reserve that for Strength, depending on whether or not that move is necessary.

    Here's the next, and probably also the last team review. I have beaten the Elite Four with this team, and it was an amazing adventure. Everyone was amazing, no exceptions, and they did a really great job on my team. I'm proud of all of my team members, and how they did their job perfectly. This was one of my most fun playthroughs ever, and I'm super glad I did it!
    All my team members will be transferred to my main game on Alpha Sapphire, where I will probably train them up to level 100 and do some more fun stuff. See you all next time!
    [member='Blisca'] the Tangrowth
    [​IMG]
    Destruction with dreadlocks
    [Level 52] [Serious Nature] [Somewhat vain]
    - Ancient Power
    - Sleep Powder
    - Giga Drain
    - Sludge Bomb
    Although she didn't do a lot in the Elite Four itself, Blisca has been one of the best Pokémon on my team for pretty much the entire playthrough. It started with her destroying the first Gym, and she just kept going and going from there, spamming Giga Drain like there's no tomorrow! Not only that, she also made me regain my love for the Pokémon in general, so I should thank her for multiple reasons! Thank you Blisca, for being an amazing Pokémon on my team!
    [member='Nature Lady'] the Greninja
    [​IMG]
    Mysterious and majestic
    [Level 54] [Brave Nature] [Alert to sounds]
    - Surf
    - Extrasensory
    - Dark Pulse
    - Ice Beam
    Speaking of amazing Pokémon, Nature Lady managed to single-handedly defeat not just one, but two Elite Four leaders. Ghosts couldn't stand up against her powerful Dark Pulse, and Dragons were no match for the amazing Ice Beam. Before the Elite Four, she did an amazing job at carrying a massive amount of HM's for me, which is just another way to prove how useful you can be on my team! Thanks to Nature Lady for being amazing!
    [member='Magpaeonia'] the Staraptor
    [​IMG]
    Self-proclaimed godess of power
    [Level 51] [Impish Nature] [Alert to sounds]
    - Close Combat
    - Brave Bird
    - Quick Attack
    - Roost
    She used to do a great job at flying me around all the time, but since I have my soaring abilities for that now, that was no longer necessary, so I traded Fly in for Roost, something she'd need much more. Mag also didn't find much use in the Elite Four, yet there's no way I could ever forget her amazingness. She's a great Pokémon to fight with, and this playthrough really made me love Staraptor a lot more. Thanks Mag!
    [member='Synerjee'] the Galvantula
    [​IMG]
    The cutest powerhouse alive
    [Level 56] [Sassy Nature] [Alert to sounds]
    - Slash
    - Signal Beam
    - Electro Ball
    - Thunder Wave
    The only one on the team who didn't chance her moveset at all, simply because it already was the very best it could be. Synerjee took a while to get going, but once she had a few good moves in her set, she really destroyed everyone with her powerful attacks. Electro Ball is amazing in combination with Thunder Wave, and I passed the Dark type Elite Four leader by simple spamming Signal Beam over and over again. Thank you Synerjee, for being the amazing Pokémon you are!
    [member='Bloom'] the Florges
    [​IMG]
    Force of the flower
    [Level 55] [Naughty Nature] [Alert to sounds]
    - Psychic
    - Magical Leaf
    - Moonblast
    - Calm Mind
    Bloom was in one word amazing on my team. She has a lot of power, and most of her hits result in one-hit KO's. She really proved to me how powerful a Fairy type really can be. And even though her nature lowers Special Defense, it's still through the roof. Nothing was going to bring her down, and that's what makes her so great on my team. Thank you Bloom, you were a real hero!
    [member='YouHoney'] the Infernape

    The crazy fighter
    [Level 56] [Sassy Nature] [Takes plenty of siestas]
    - Close Combat
    - Flamethrower
    - Earthquake
    - Acrobatics
    YouHoney, for the biggest part of the game, used to be a bit lacking in power. His moves just weren't that great, and he would die to almost anything. But wow, he managed to prove himself so well in the Elite Four! Taking out the Ice type Elite Four leader all by himself, and half of the Champion's team as well, he really proved that he had some power to be shown. I'm glad that this happened, because before this, he wasn't the best of the team. Thanks to YouHoney for being awesome!
