Alright, re-did the first update after restarting my game, so my first update is up! Just click the link in my sig. Everything is going smooth as clockwork so far, but given the challenges I've been handed that's no surprise. They're all ones that are going to really kick in around mid-game, and I won't be noticing them much just yet. Give me a gym or two, then I'll start feeling the burn.
EDIT: @ Dinosaurdan you are challenged to Beat Whitney with a Ghastly. This sounds easy until you realize that her Miltank has Scrappy in HG. Have fun!
