That was quite hard! Paralysis seems to be non existent lol and the damage output without Sludge Bomb and similar moves is very low. Intimidate is really a good ability to alleviate the problem, except when flying mons come in a row and/or use special moves (Outrage *coff*) since with SpA/SpD split in FR there isn't a X Special Defense. And Stockpile was different from now, damn it! xDGratz Manitary, nice job on Snake's solo's, quite impressive. I am happy to see Snake do so much work in the Elite four.
Gneulaut was really a good pokémon, the set I used is terryfing and doesn't work only vs Vital Spirit/Insomnia pokémon (= Drowzee/Hypno/Mankey/Primeape). The only problem is that I didn't level him up at the right time (e.g. through the story just after the catch) and when you're a step away from the end, grinding becomes quite tedious expecially without exp.share (it requires 50 pokémon entries in the dex) and with not-much-exp-giving pokémon.I enjoy how you straight gave up on Gneulaut.
How did you enjoy War/Peace? Most people enjoy feedback of their Pokémon in order for us to properly give better challanges.
Maybe I could give him all the Rare Candies to have a spot in the league battles other than death fodder, since Bruno's pokémon always use rock moves on the switch instead of normal/fighting (even when they would be super effective) and the only one who need a turn to hit him is Hitmonlee.
The idea behind War/Peace (I mean, the change of heart upon evolution) is nice, the problem is that you catch him at around lvl 13 and he evolves only at lvl 28. So if you choose to evolve him and you haven't an intermediate objective (soloing a late game gym/gym leader prior to evolve is probably a good idea) you can just grind the experience needed and obtain Peace without "experiencing" War, which is bad because I think War is far more challenging than Peace...expecially if you choose to not evolve!
Seeing his physical movepool I'm really happy of my choice because the best set is probably Double Edge/Shadow Ball/Dig/Aerial Ace and he has bad stats (expecially defenses) so it's very hard to solo an E4, the easiest is probably Agatha but in my case it wouldn't have been possible because of Snake.
That's it: I would add the request of soloing something if you want him to evolve.
Nuke at the beginning is interesting: soloing a gym leader w/o Iron Tail means that you must wait Lt.Surge/Erika...or you're forced to beat Rock if you haven't any other pokémon yet ;) not an easy task but you have Growl so it's doable. Then he becomes boring since you're just spamming Flamethrower. And at the end he returns interesting since the inability of switching out is often a drowback (as you can see against Blue, I can't switch out against a Rhydon with Reflect up).
...I just noticed that I violated a clause since I used some Hyper Potion on Nuke, so I'm going to re-do the E4 in the right way. It won't be a big problem though, I've just to change the 5 designated pokémon: I'll probably go for some Bruno's pokés and then see how many I've left, other easy are Haunter and Exeggutor.
Kirby is a real pain, a true challenge. His stats are just bad, so even with the right moves (Brick Break/Ice Beam depending on situation) is still hard to solo Giovanni, and things are just worse if you don't have X Defend.
Calamitous was nice, his only problem are Water and Grass gym. Fortunately, the first doesn't present strong Water-type attacks so he has time to strike; and so probably the second lol but you can skip it and come back when he can OHKO with Magnitude/EQ/Rock Slide (depending on the level)
