Pokémon White Spoilers 

Well, some stuff happened since the last time!
I've been to Castelia City, fought off Team Plasma. In the meantime, :pidove: evolved into :tranquill: .

Then, I defeated the Gym Leader over there. It was a fairly easy fight, with :tranquill: and :pignite: taking most of the lead.

I then went to Nimbasa City, passed by Route 4 and caught a :darumaka: , a :scraggy: , a :sandile: and a :maractus: . In nimbasa, besides talking to the professor, I've also had to fight some other thugs from Plasma Team, the man I've saved was so thankful he gave me a bike! 🚲

I'm probably going to pass by the desert resort to check out the ruins I've been hearing about so much.

Ah, had forgot a trade! Caught a :petilil: and traded for a :cottonee: :)

It was a productive time at Pinwheel forest. My starters evolved, now I have a :servine: :pignite: and :dewott:
I also caught a :timburr: :tympole: :sewaddle: and a :petilil:
Which puts me in a total of 21 for the Pokedex, which is a great improvement from the morning :)

Now off to Castelia City!

I got to Nacrene city after some small encounters with the Plasma Team. Captured a :woobat: in a cave on the way and :throh: inside Nacrene.

I trained a bit around the city, but with :throh: and Rock Smash, defeating Lenora was not that hard! 2 badges!

Then Plasma appeared again doing some shit 😅 Now I'm chasing them in the forest, where I found an :audino: in the moving grass!

I'm at 13 caught, I need to ramp up my catching!

After another hour of replaying the beginning, now I have :tepig: and :pansage: too!
In the meantime, I also got a :pidove: and a :blitzle:
I think I have a fairly balanced party now, with :pidove: :blitzle: :tepig: :snivy: :oshawott: and :purrloin:
Off to the second gym we go!

Okay, after what seems like forever, I've managed to arrive at the point of being able to trade!

So I've traded a :snivy: and a :panpour: from a Pokémon Black game I've started on the side.

Now I'm missing a :pansage: and a :tepig: and I'll be good for starter-related stuff!

Alrite, off to a slow start, I've defeated the first gym with a party of :oshawott: , :patrat: , :purrloin: , :lillipup: and :pansear:

It seems that there's no way to trade pokémon before defeating the first gym, which will make getting the other two starters very slow.

I miss my heartgold pokémon 😭

I'm starting a new pokémon white game, I've chosen :oshawott: as my starter! But like last time, I'll play the beginning of pokémon black a couple of times to get :tepig: and :snivy:

Let's see how this goes :trainer:

The story so far!

In 2016 I've decided to start playing pokémon games trying to catch all pokémon, without any kind of cheating device.

As a kid I've played a lot using no$gb and no$gba, so most of the times I would GameShark the fuck out of it.

In December, after some time, I finally made it, 149 pokémon without any kind of cheat.

In 2018 when I've joined Donphan.social I was starting a HG&SS adventure. I've finished it around Feb this year, with all 256 from Johto plus some extra ones because of the new Gen thingy. (The thread with the Game can be found over here: donphan.social/@renatolond/101)

And now, I'm starting a new B&W game! I haven't played B&W when it came out, so it's going to be a first :D

While everyone is playing some Sw/Sh I'll pick up where I left off and start a B&W game :)

Here's a self-curated list of trainers doing main series game runs and posting about them. There should be more out there though, share links in comments please!

Finally! 256 from Johto ✅
Last one was :lugia: !

I also caught :latios: and :latias: , and now I have some last stuff to do: fight red, go to cerulean cave and see if I can do some easy catches for the national pokedex.

Since I already have the Kanto legendaries, I was thinking of trying some reset for a while to try to get a shiny, but I'm afraid that might take a while 🤔

It's been a long time since an update, but I'm not on 250 out of 256.

I'm working hard on evolving my :pupitar: into :tyranitar: . I still have to catch :lugia: , but I'm holding on that since I haven't been able to spend much time training my team since I started training the :pupitar: .

Besides those, I'm missing the exclusives: :teddiursa: , :ursaring: , :skarmory: and :delibird: . I'm working on getting those now.

I still have some incense that I plan to use before I stop playing HG, and I plan to catch the duo :latias: and :latios: .

I still plan to go to Cerulean Cave and finish Mt. Silver, so I still might get some extra pokémon out of that.

But I'll pause for some time before starting the next game, I had my share of pokémon for a while 😂

Tuesday was the first anniversary of the donphan.social domain name... Today is the first anniversary of the instance being public and open to subscription :ms_party_face:

:donphan: :masto_ball:

Thanks donphan.social users, thanks fediverse, for being a part of this journey!

Happy to announce the first anniversary of the donphan.social domain name, that I just renewed.

The instance opened registrations on January 18, 2018!

Off to another year!

:donphan::masto_ball:

pkmn let's go eevee thoughts 

@teamskullboss I thought it was a bit weird to be unable to breed too, specially since I played firered not too long ago, but well 🤷🏽‍♂️

Pokémon Heartgold spoilers 

I'm slowly getting there!

I've evolved my :tangela: into :tangrowth: and got an :ampharos: too.

Have a :scyther: , :slowpoke: , :seadra: , :poliwhirl: and :porygon: all lined up for trades to evolve!

I'm now at 231 out of 256 :)
Also, I didn't know about the "New Pokedex" vs "Regional Johto Pokedex" thingy when I started. Interesting, though :)

Kinda decided to go to Pokémon White after I get the 256. :trainer:

re: Pokémon Heartgold spoilers 

@Feufochmar Yeah, I don't remember either, but I really think I didn't fish (or headbutt) that much, though I think I had a :heracross: . But since I don't have those saves it's been a long time, I'll never know 😄

Pokémon Heartgold spoilers 

I'm catching some pokémon that were left, like :corsola: , :chinchou: and :aipom: and I feel like when I first played Gold/Silver I didn't saw these pokémon (or saw them very few times), because I really don't remember them 😱
In any case I'm now at 217 out of 256. I have some boring level ups to do 🙃

Getting to 250 it's taking a little longer with holidays in the middle of it, but, I managed to evolve a :espeon: and a :umbreon: yesterday, I've also defeated 7 of Kanto's gyms.
Now, I don't plan to fill the national pokedex, but since I found some incense in the way, I might still get the baby pokémon from those xD
Also I've been getting calls from the safari zone dude, I think I have some new areas to explore, maybe some pokémon will come out of that too xD
