Hello, Hido here. Didn't really realize the goal was to run through all the games when my friends were posting their progress, but hey, I've got time.

Let's do this.

1. Only catch the first Pokemon of your type in each route or area. This also includes Pokemon that will evolve into your type. Caves count as one area. Suggestion: Make a list of Pokemon in your current region that are legit catches and keep it near you while you play
1a. Gift Clause: You may receive a gift and get a catch of your type in each area/Town/or Cave. You are limited to one gift per area though so you cannot get Eevee and Abra from Goldenrod City if your type is Psychic
1b. Dupes Clause: You may ignore all Pokemon not of your Type (unless they evolve into your type). You may keep getting encounters until you find a Pokemon you do not already have of your type. You may catch dupes if you desire (to use or hold as backups).
1c. Shiny Clause: I can catch and use any shinies I find.
1d. Legendaries: I am not allowed to use legendaries, though I may catch them if I really want to/need to.

2. Faint = Dead

3. Nickname all the Pokemon

4. Run ends at Hall of Fame.




So we're starting out with Fire Red! because lol at going through gen 1 kanto



My name will be Hido. What happened to Ferdinand von Aegir?
Well, we all are Ferdinand von Aegir, of course. But wait on that.



You know in your heart that Caspar would totally say "Smell ya later!"



A normal run would have some padding here, but I am horrible at taking screenshots, so have our first Fire mon's nickname.
And yes, she is Ferdinand von Aegir! Ferdie says trans rights.



I don't regret my naming choice. This totally has Caspar energy.



Oh hey, here's our answer to Brock. Thank god I don't have to grind an obnoxious amount.
At least I'm not doing an Electric solo of Yellow! imagine that



That wasn't so bad.



Hey Game Freak devs, you could've made it so I was handed these when I was setting off.
Not good game design.



insert praise helix meme



Like hell I'm relying on Mega Kick's 75 accuracy



Okay, maybe not exactly Caspar energy



Ferdinand von Aegir isn't scary!
that'd be hubert

Not pictured: Ferdinand going up to level 30 after Nugget Bridge and Bill shenanigans, me deciding to grind one more level just in case.



... Which I'm really glad I did, jesus christ

Not pictured: Ferdinand not 2HKOing with Mega Punch because Modest nature, a pattern of Starmie using Water Pulse and Recover,
me freaking out and using a bunch of Super Potions, and me deciding to just wing it and bank on Misty not using a potion while we were both at red health.

I'm gonna stop here because my wisdom teeth area hurts.
Fuck wisdom teeth.

While I think fie types are awesome, I'm fairly sure you don't get another fire type until the Eevee and the Growlithe. Good luck, you're going to need it.

I'm feeling somewhat better now, so let's continue with this madness.

While I think fie types are awesome, I'm fairly sure you don't get another fire type until the Eevee and the Growlithe. Good luck, you're going to need it.
Oh yeah, this is basically going to be a Ferdie solo for a while. And thanks!

hell yeah charmeleon solo, at least until flareon and growlithe
gogogogogogo


also good luck fire's a tough type here
Thanks Shark! And yeah, that's probably going to be a theme for all of my UCL runs tbh.



So zoom, we're here in Vermillion City.
Old man, would you care to donate your Rapidash for this fire monolocking soul?
I'd get a precious fire type, and you'd avoid jail. For bestiality or animal abuse or whatever.
... No? Okay then...



okay I'm seriously bad at taking pics, but context: we're in the middle of a SS Anne sweep, and I don't want Ferdie to be weak to Surge.



tfw I'll have to teach this to Ferdie



anime voice It can't be helped.



and Surge down.



Okay, now you can evolve.



Bless you Route 7, finally, this isn't a Ferdie solo anymore.



Big, fluffy doge who would Extremespeed at his foes? Definitely the Gatekeeper.



Oh right, I can get Flareon.



idk why I named him Lorenz, but he's Lorenz now.
Lorenz becomes pretty, it works.



Like so!



nope nope nope nope



also side note: fuck these meowths with their bite flinches



Holy shit, Lorenz.
Your movepool sucks, god damn.
This will be rectified. With TMs.



btw this guy's name is Gamer Stan, and he uses Water types.
My mortal enemy.



Anyway, time to grind.
Turboing and mashing the A button legitimately works. Thanks, emulator.



8500 coins of investment. Hopefully this doesn't go to waste.



Also Gatekeeper gets Flamethrower, because Fire types can't catch a break with their Gen 3 movepools.



Yeah I'm not waiting until level 49 as a Growlithe just to get Flamethrower



I'm sorry Smokey, I burned down plant life.



lol no



Anyway, I fought Giovanni, and down goes his only mon with a Rock type move.



Now hand me the Silph Scope.



okay screw you too buddy, I'll S rank linhardt in my 3H playthrough.



ABORT ABORT ABORT ABORT
(idk what I was thinking, don't ask)



Pokeflute get, Snorlax down.



Gamefreak, can we talk.



Ferdie's gonna learn Slash soon, so bye bye Cut.



tl;dr: fuck Muk, otherwise it was fine.
I'll improve at taking screenshots one day.

Anyway, I'll end things here for today.
Next time: I save a gigantic corporation or something.

In this update: we defend capitalism from the mafia or sumthin



so before we go to saffron, we gotta go get surf and strength and stuff



I'm a dumbass and accidentally caught this guy while turboing
oh and I did the same thing with a doduo too
oops



bitch wtf I'm right in front of him
sigh I'll temporarily stop using turbo



and there goes another 500 pokedollars
smh



sayonara, I barely knew thee accidental catches.



Strength get.

Also some grandma gave me the tea.



Wow gossips, smh
tho tbf they're probably bored out of their minds, I'll let things slide



tfw monotype fire



tfw mafia gonna get fucked because some underling is bad at their job



And skip to the caspar fight
idk man, maybe from fighting all the goons while you sat pretty?
Your name is a lie, Caspar would've fought all the goons for JUSTICE



Superior starter dunks on turtle and takes their Galarian passport



Why thank you for the HM slave, I was gonna need a Surfer soon

Anyway, time for mafia boss-



LORENZ NOOOOOOO!!
context: Lorenz had already been Screech'd, and I was a dumbass and stayed in, after seeing he could take a Body Slam. Then Nidoqueen critted me.



He died like a true noble, F.
Welp, there goes my Sabrina check. Lorenz was supposed to Shadow Ball everything.



Gatekeeper has Bite though, so things still went smoothly.
Onward to Cinnebar!



So this happened while I was surfing. Nice.



Also here's my mansion catch. Hello, Gatekeeper backup.
She will do her finest Gatekeeper impression if our favorite Gatekeeper somehow dies.



lmao in Flash Fire. Blaine down.



And of course I took the detour to One Island. Gotta catch that Ponyta!



Welcome aboard, Marianne!
Side note: her movepool sucks, so I spent 80k to get Flamethrower at the Game Corner, and also gave her Fire Blast, Sunny Day, and Solarbeam.



Which was pretty worth it. Last gym down!

I'll end things off here. Next update should be the final update, where I take on the E4!

Here it is, the finale!



EQ is nice coverage.



so uhh, I didn't get screenies, but as you can see, caspar's defeated.
I'll have actual screenshots for the champion battle, I swear.



lmao why



So I got through Victory Road and started grinding and this happened.
Jesus Marianne, don't give me a heart attack.



Anyway, final movesets.
Dragon Claw's obvious, Toxic is for Toxic stall, just in case.
Let's do this, gang.



bruh, I'm mono fire.



so I had a hail vs. sunny day war.
(don't worry, marianne came out on top.)



Anyway, the rest was easy enough with fire moves and Solarbeam.
Lorelei down.




Bruno was also simple enough with Fly. Had a bit of trouble when EQ wasn't doing as much as I thought to one of the Onixs,
and Rock moves started being thrown into the fray, but we prevailed.



Onward to Agatha!



We're off to a good start.




tbh I forgot why Gatekeeper was out for Golbat and Arbok, but oh well, we won.
Blackglasses boosted Bite pretty much made clean work of Agatha.



Now time for Lance!
I missed taking screenshots with Gyarados, but basically it went down after some Dragon Rageing and some Flamethrowers/Flys from Ferdie iirc.



Gatekeeper tanking for the win! Aerodactyl went down to Toxic here.



And now Lance is basically toast.



Really?



Anyway, Lance down.

And now...



It's time, Caspar!

BRING IT!



Pidgeot down! But now comes the real threat...



This guy! He 2HKO's Marianne with Hydro Pump under the sun, thank god Hydro Pump missed while I was setting up Sunny Day.
Anyway, some Solarbeams took care of the turtle.



With Blastoise down, the rest of his goons aren't really much of a threat.



And there we have it folks, Ferdinand von Aegir landed the final blow against Champion Caspar!



Admit your loss, faker, Caspar would've admitted his loss fair and square.



Anyway, that's the Kanto run over, folks! ignore the lapras
Meet me next time on this thread for Soul Silver, where I attempt to do mono fire in Johto!

We move on to Johto!
Before the update though, notifying you all that I'm amending my self imposed no using shinies rule to allow me to use them. UCL2 allows participants to use shinies, and like hell I'm going to pass up Red Gyarados with Johto's shitty level design. Shinies are rare enough that this'll probably only affect my Johto run anyway.

Nice work with Kanto! RIP Flareon number 1. Johto is not gonna be friendly but you can do it. Good luck!
Why thank you! I'll need the luck.

Dude, you moved so fast! Couldn't you have caught Moltres, though?
This is what happens when a college student on a break has nothing to do. I've been ahead of pretty much all my updates. Heck with this run, I'm already finished with Chuck right now.
As for Moltres, nope. UCL2 participants aren't allowed to use legendaries. Though we can technically catch them I guess (so we don't get screwed over with Zekrom/Reshiram). I'll add a no legendary clause to make things clear.



Welcome folks, to my mono fire typelocke in Soul Silver! Watch as I suffer through pain and glitches.
(Well not the glitches, because I'm not screenshotting those. Just imagine me dealing with desmume's shitty HGSS emulation)



My name, like before, will be Hido.



No mom, I don't even have anything in the menu right now





And here we have our first mon of the locke. Yes, the naming theme this time will be Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's characters.
We Pokemon games on Flame Wheels now.



This is very appreciated, thank you random NPC assistant.



Wow, this is advanced boomery.
Eh, she'll be fine.



tfw adamant
I guess we're really relying on Flame Wheels this run.



Makes you think, how many Map Cards does this guy have? Does he hand these out to any 10 year old trainer he sees?
He is the Guide Gent.



Ah, the good ol limited space problem.
Paralyz Heal sends its regards.



bruh it's a Togepi egg



Oh yeah, our yet to be named rival.
I hope you see where I'm gonna go with this.



Jack literally stole Stardust Dragon from Yusei, he's perfect for our rival's name.



okay I know she says it's better to drop its HP more than she did
but this still makes me chuckle



guys I did it
I got Joey the legend's phone number







thank god this isn't going to be a starter solo for a while like last time
and yes, I'm using dub names. even though I watched 5D's with subs.



god it took forever to get her a STAB move



oh yeah, we're in the sprout tower now or something
luna learning rock throw is neat, she's got a suite life ahead of her



tbh props to you for clearing this with a totodile



at least it's a TM, not a HM this time



so I grinded, and now it's time for the first gym
bring it on, falkner



STOP IT, YOU ASSHOLE



that's right, stay down
and that's basically falkner done



I mean, I'm saving it from potential death by being on my team
that counts as taking good care of it, right



charcoal when



oh and this happened
one step closer to Flame Wheels



and skip ahead to slowpoke well
I was going to have more screenshots, but I press F11 instead of my screenshot button F12 sometimes
expect that to be a constant theme for me in general



🤣
yeah no



oh yeah, and I beat this guy up



excuse you, I'm pretty sure he was called Hido



Anyway, time for Bugsy



Scyther wasn't too bad.
Anyway, that's basically Bugsy done with
I will be eternally baffled that his Metapod and Kakuna weren't buffed



time for the rival rematch!
me: surely this can't be too bad-



- oh. Oh.
okay seriously, why the fuck is croconaw level 18 when bugsy's scyther was level 17
Johto can we talk



I barely lived and I had to spam super potions, jesus christ



fuck you, your croconaw was level 18

Anyway, I'll end things here.
Next time, the dreaded murder cow. Find out how I deal with everyone's nightmare!
