    Torchic = possible new Bird Jesus if enough people start it
    Treecko = smash the champion
    Mudkip = good through the entire game but will lose to Wallace because of its secondary typing, and iirc he has a Ludicolo as well.

    Take your pick.

    ^To be fair, the same was said about both the Safari Zone and the Second Ledge. I think Spear Pillar is what is going to stop this dead unless modded.

    How is Spear Pillar bad lol

    Unless you meant Sky Pillar, in which case it's not destroyed during the compulsory run to awaken Rayquaza.

    ^Ah, little mix-up there.

    Yes, I meant Sky Pillar, and even though it isn't completely destroyed in the compulsory run, there are "quick reaction" puzzles that would be impossible to overcome in the current format of TPP. In Anarchy, the button presses don't come quick enough to get the Mach Bike up to the required speed to pass over the cracked tiles. In Democracy, the button presses are spread throughout the entire voting period. "Left9" would be nine separate taps on the "left" button, spread across the entire voting period. To get across a cracked tile, they would have to hold the button, which is currently impossible. There's even a part when they have to turn while maintaining high speeds, even in the compulsory run.

    EDIT: wait, upon examining the images on Bulbapedia, it appears that I remembered wrong. It seems like very little of the floor is cracked in the compulsory run, and that you don't have to cross any cracked tiles then.

    Going via the entire gyms:
    Rock: All 3 good is they evolve Torchic before the gym
    Fighting: Marshtomp is the best for this gym
    Electric: Marshtomp destroys this gym. Combuskin can do well, Groy is average
    Fire: Marshtomp or bust
    Normal: Combuskin is best here
    Flying: Marshtomp
    Psychic: Marshtomp or Groy
    Water: Sceptile

    Treecko is the biggest hindrance for the gyms and would make IMO for the most interesting run. Plus all it can do is Cut HM wise

    Torchic in a game with water everywhere not the best choice IMO

    Treecko would be funny because we'd actually be forced to read the pokédex entry every five seconds.

    also it starts tomorrow eeeeee

    It's begun!

    We picked May as our character, and named ourselves 'A'. We have a Torchic called 'zyyxyy' or something like that lol.

    We also tossed all our pokeballs......

    We found a great ball though, and apparently Torchic's holding a pokeball. Torchic reached level 16, and predictably, we cancelled it's evolution.

    In an effort to Withdraw Nincada who has cut, we've deposited everything but our Poochyena, though we did manage to get Nincada out. Luckily, Releasing Pokemon is harder in Emerald so we suffered no casualties.

    Fun fact: Today is Sunday the 23rd just like last time :P

    EDIT: we withdrew Torchic and deposited Poochyena. After a while we faced Brendan and his Mudkip beat the shit out of our two water-weak Pokemon....

    Haha, yeah. People were convinced it would be nearly impossible to release pokemon in Emerald, messed around too much with the PC. A release was inevitable, but unfortunately it was our starter.....

    I still think they'll pull through, Zexy was near useless anyway, with only mirror move and quick attack to do damage, and being a Torchic with poor defences meant it fainted pretty quickly. Azumarill's always really been the pokemon carrying the team on its shoulders. We also have two overlevelled Poochyena and a Shedinja too, so yeah.

    Some people on reddit are linking the incident with Full Metal alchemist, saying that we transmuted Torchic's soul into the hollow shell of Shedinja, and that zexy still lives lol.

    EDIT: found some artwork-
