Recently I have decided to play through Pokemon Platinum Version (because I've had this game over a year and never got past the 2nd gym) on my vacation from work. I encourage everyone who wants to play through a game and try out some Pokemon they've never used before to try this out. How it works:

Go to Random.org and roll a random number on the right side of the screen 6 times (depending on what version you're playing through, you have to set the maximum at 151, 251, 386, or 493.) I rolled Igglybuff, Bellsprout, Porygon, Dragonite, Togetic, and Mew (re-rolled and got Magnezone, I'd prefer not to use legendaries because they can't be eggs.) I bred all these Pokemon Pearl and traded them over to Platinum with the help of someone on this forum, and that's now my team. The rule is if you roll a number that is an evolved Pokemon you have to start it off in its first form (unless it's Chansey/Snorlax/Marill etc., since they can be eggs too.) So my team is:

Igglybuff (Jenna)
Togepi (Koga)
Bellsprout (James)
Porygon (Binary)
Magnemite (Bumper)
Dratini (DQ Bahamut)

I flipped a coin to decide my trainer's gender, so I'm a male trainer named Axel who has 1 badge.

Anyone else up for this? It's a pretty good way to discover how useful a Pokemon can really be. I always thought Bellsprout kinda sucked, but so far he's my #1. Or perhaps its just because he's in the top percentile of Bellspouts?

I wanna try this (Silver). My team:

Squirtle
Meowth
Chikorita
Omanyte
Phanphy
Charmander

So my final team will be:

Blastoise
Persian
Meganium
Omastar
Donphan
Charizard

My character is a boy named Noah.

I still don't know how I got 3 starters. I didn't cheat, I swear.

One main problem I noticed with this is the requirement of Surf and Fly (pretty much all the other HMs can be skipped as they're only needed once or twice in the games and almost everything learns Strength). I have Dragonair for Surf and Togetic for Fly, Ryan has Blastoise/Charizard, rex has Togekiss for Fly (although I would probably re-roll for something that gets Surf), and fullerfast has Linoone and Crobat.

Right now my team is kinda low leveled and I'm about to face Fantina. I have Weepinbell and a Leaf Stone, but I'm not sure when to use it. Igglybuff and Togepi (thank god) evolved and Togetic is still the loser on my team due to having a very piss-poor movepool. I found an up-grade in the T.G. building in Eterna City, so I also have Porygon2, leaving just Magnemite and Dratini in their first forms.

Good luck with your playthroughs, mine is going great so far!

ick igglybuff and zubat are hard to train even but i tought igglybuff return and its my most powerfull right now even though the team is only lv 7
zubat keeps ticking me off he is no good at the time but i just gotta keep on trying with this one he will get better hm hm sorry she will get better
i have decided to make igglybuff my lead (and partner) with a return under the belt once it evolves it will be a force to be reconed with
i might have a problem with roark though going to have to level a lot

i never realized exactly how weak a lv one pokemon is it is amazing a lv 2 starly takes down nearly my whole team with a couple of attacks then larvatar comes in with rock slide (guess its an egg move go figure)
ill just update my sig when my team evolves and badges gotten

just noticed a problem larvitar hit lv 11 and it started to not listen to orders it is from my soulsilver so he isnt "mine" but some of my other lv 11s (all are from my soulsilver) are listening fine though going to investigate to problem with larvitar
no my beedrill just refused orders as well this might not go over well with only lv 10s and some 11s who dont listen

I'll Try.

3. Torterra (Yurtle)
141. Mantine (Kraken)
106. Hoothoot (Strix)
89. Bronzong (Liberty)
130. Toxicroak (Dart)
47. Mothim (Mac)

My Character is a male named Alex.

So my final team will be:

Torterra
Mantine
Noctowl
Bronzong
Toxicroak
Mothim

I used the Sinnoh Pokedex, so I could try to train new pokemon (I don't normally use Sinnoh pokemon.)

Fullerfast: To fix that problem I bred Pokemon in Pearl and traded the eggs over, they hatched in my new Platinum game and I became the new OT.

So far my team is Dragonair, Porygon2, Weepinbell, Wigglytuff, Magnezone, and Togetic all about level 30, give or take a few levels. I just beat Maylene and I'm about to go through the Veilstone warehouse to beat up team Galactic. I played the slots for over an hour to get Togetic TM29 because he sucked so bad, lol.

I'm at the pokemon league right now. I had to edit my team, so I threw out Toxicroak and Mothim, and replaced them for Lucario and Dialga. I really have no life, do I? Anyways, Playing through pokemon has gotten really old. It's just not that fun.

I started today!! took me awhile because togepi apparently can't have kids, so i had nothing to breed!! had to evolve the stupid thing....
but yeah. three guys, three girls. all named (after a fashion) after their parents (yes i'm sappy like that). my togepi came out without any attack moves whatsoever, so training will be a pain in the @$$ for it. but, yeah. yay, i started!!! [/randompost]

I would just like to say Togepi/Togetic are some of the hardest Pokemon I have ever trained. Metronome, Yawn, Encore, and Rock Smash are about the only moves you have to work with until level 33 (AncientPower) or Gamecorner's TM29 (Psychic).

I suffered through it though and I am very satisfied at how my how Togekiss came out.

Still need to evolve my Porygon2 though, it's such a pain to evolve, I have the dubious disc but haven't set up a trade yet...

with the weaker pokemon who dont learn moves for what seems like ever i had igglybuff i taught it return just because it has a great base power for a lower lv pokemon and it only gets stronger as you use the pokemon so its a win/win scenario you can easily raise it and it gets stronger plus if you are like me and seem to linger around in the different towns you can easilly get massages and rasie the power to max evolveand more

i sent the eggs over now and things are going well even though zubat is still extreamly weak and eevee and larvatar havent hatched yet but all goes well

okay, thanks for the togepi tips, guys/gal!!
right now, it looks like mantine and *shocked* mankey are my strongest ones. riolu kinda sucks right now due to the fact that drain punch only has five pp, and quick attack does squat. absol's good as well, but as soon as something resistant to bite comes along, he's probably toast. ekans is alrite... so yeah, overall, just grinding to get my pokemon to the levels they need to be, then i'm gonna be off to oreburgh!!

Acually, its preference in the regular random generator, or just a pokemon generator. Either way good luck!

About to start this on Platinum. Here's my team:

#475 - Gallade "Erureido"
#398 - Staraptor "Bazinga"
#478 - Froslass "Yuki Onna"
#352 - Kecleon "Geico"
#171 - Lanturn "LolNemo"
#206 - Dunsparce "Flinchy"

I really have never used any of these before, so it should be pretty fun. Especially Kecleon :D

{togekiss} level 48
{porygon-z} level 48
{victreebel} level 53
{magnezone} level 53
{dragonite} level 57

Well that was fun! I'm thinking about randomizing a playthrough for HeartGold or FireRed; I can't really decide.

go with FireRed, HGSS sucked imo.... besides, in HGSS, it's hard to train, but then again, it's pretty long, so...
Right now, I just got out of Valley Windworks and I am currently grinding. Interesting moment was when my Togepi used Metronome, and Aeroblasted the crap out of a Bidoof.
EDIT: 666th post....dudundun.

HGSS. It requires less grinding than FRLG.

I think I'mma restart my Pearl and do this .. or maybe just jump straight into Plantinum .. well back to the topic.

Capped @ 386 .
Rolled SEVERAL SHYT LOADS OF TIMES . Why ? A friggin WATER won't come in and I was really pissed >.>

#153 - {magmar}
#227 - {skarmory}
#336 - {seviper}
#123 - {scyther}
$106 - {hitmonlee}
#159 - {croconaw} -> {feraligatr}

Some stuff I got while surfing for my last Pokemon [ Surfer ]

{tangela} {chansey} {flareon} {mightyena}

And some other legendaries . I really wanted Mightyena but darn had to let it go by my eyes ..

1 Question though , before I kick things off , am I allowed to evolve things like Magmar & Scyther to Magmortar & Scizor ?

This isn't the nuzlocke crap, there are no rules. When I played through Platinum with my team I said I wasn't going to evolve Togetic or Porygon because I thought their evolution items weren't in the game, but they were, so I ended up evolving them.

When I play random, I don't trade the items I can't get like evolution stuff.
