ROUND 3: GEMERATION III
This round will end at 11:59:59 PM (GMT -5) on 9/7.

In 2005, Pokémon Emerald was released in North America, Europe, and Australia. The third generation of Pokémon games introduced more than one hundred new Pokémon, abilities, double battles, and many other improvements to the Pokémon franchise. Pokémon Emerald also expanded on Crystal's Battle Tower, providing players with a new challenge in the form of the Battle Frontier.

CHALLENGE
Pokémon Emerald: Achieve the highest streak in the Battle Factory (single battle, open level).

Unlike the previous two challenges, this challenge doesn't have a time requirement. It doesn't test your ability to think on your feet or to plan out strategies in advance; instead, it tests your ability to adapt to constantly shifting battle conditions.

RULES
A list of general rules can be found here.

  1. Do not abuse save states/resets.

I tried on a cart yesterday and got 1 halfway decent run which took hours. Tried with an emulator and it is easily 8x better. Beating 10 trainers in 10 minutes is just fun.

If you are using my save file, I will accept the score from either RECORD or PREV., because the file had no previous score.
If you are using your own save file, make sure you screenshot PREV., so I know it is a recent score.

This honestly makes me tempted to go with the emulator for this round. I'd just prefer to play on the actual console whenever able.

On a different note, whenever I see any OHKO move being used, I have this terrible sinking feeling.

I'm feeling worse and worse about my streak by the day T_T.
You're not the only one :/

It's looking like we probably won't make it to the next round, sadly.

And the Counter thing is definitely weird. Aren't Fire and Psychic types that use the special attack stat in Gen III?

Errrrg, I had to go to dinner and then lost the next match cause I was so far out of the zone I wasn't even thinking -_-

Oh well, might be enough to scrape through...
