Speaking of which...
Take Fossil the Omanyte. Trade him in at the earliest possible opportunity. Fossil is old enough to have been passed from Trainer to Trainer many times, and no-one even knows who his first Trainer was. He's that old.
Now, Fossil is an old-fashioned pokemon (obviously). As such, he fought in the same war Lt. Surge fought in. The catch is, the two of them fought on opposite sides. Solo Lt. Surge
because of an old rivalry.
After this solo is complete, Fossil takes pause to reflect on the horrors of war. He may not battle again until Koga has been defeated
Solo and capture Articuno
, and leave the bird in your box. Do the same with Zapdos in the Power Plant
. Fossil embarks on a quest to destroy all of the rivalry between pokemon trainers. The legendary birds are one source of this rivalry.
Victory Road is another. When you reach Victory Road, put all of your other pokemon into the box, and keep out only Fossil. Solo all of Victory Road
, the training ground of the greatest Trainers, in order to dispel the notion of competition once and for all. During this solo, items may be used only in battle, and nothing may be done to reduce the wild pokemon encounter rate. All wild encounters must be defeated
During his solo of Victory Road, Fossil comes to realize that battle isn't all bad, and resolves to help you fight your way to the top. Solo Lance
because he represents the pinnacle of the Pokemon League (or so you think...)
Each time you fail one of the above solos, add one of the Champion's pokemon of your choice to the above tally. When all of the Champion's pokemon have been accounted for, drop down to Agatha's pokemon. If all of her pokemon are accounted for, drop down to Bruno's pokemon. If you manage to fail solos more than that many times, throw out p10000 worth of items for each additional solo you fail.
- Solo Lt. Surge
- Can't battle until Koga is defeated
- Solo and capture Articuno and Zapdos
- Solo Victory Road, all wild encounters and all trainers
- Solo Lance
- For each solo you attempt and fail, solo one of the Champion's pokemon. See above paragraph.
