HeartGold – 7:17 – Feraligatr

I’m working my way up the Lighthouse in Olivine City and my Croconaw evolved into a Feraligatr!


Level 30

HP – 100

Attack – 64

Defense – 74

Special Attack – 57

Special Defense – 60

Speed – 64

I’m pretty proud of my Feraligatr so far.


HeartGold – 6:41 – Update

I’ve played my brains out and I’m still going strong but I’ve decided to give you an update on all my Pokemon. Well… not all of them… just the three that matter.


Level 26

HP – 72

Defense – 38

Special Attack – 50

Special Defense – 40

Speed – 59


Level 27

HP – 80

Attack – 45

Special Attack – 41

Special Defense – 43

Speed – 47


Level 27

Attack – 44

Defense – 61

Special Attack – 40

Special Defense – 47

Speed – 39

So far I’ve noticed that all of the stats seem to be slowly rising. Like, really slowly. In Diamond I’d have at least 80 of some stat by level 27 on any given Pokemon.

HeartGold – 2:34 – Zephyr Badge

Violet City Gym

I got my first badge in HeartGold and it was pretty easy, other than the fact that Totodile wouldn’t listen to me during the most crucial part of the battle.

One down; fifteen to go.

HeartGold – 2:20 – Quilava

Well, look at that. My Cyndaquil decided to evolve at level 14. WOO! Not much has changed stat-wise since my last update but I’ll give ’em to you anyway


HP – 42

Attack – 24

Defense – 22

Special Attack – 29

Special Defense – 23

Speed – 34

Time to go beat the crud out of Falkner and his wimpy little birds!

HeartGold – A New Adventure!

Man, I need to come up with a more original title for when I start new games…

Anyway, I bought HeartGold about two hours ago and I’m already in love with it (as much as you can be “in love” with a video game). The new PokeDex layout, the new Pokemon stats pages… gah, too much for me to gawk over. But those things are beside the point; I’m here to give you an update on my adventure so far.

I decided to pick (who else) Cyndaquil to begin my adventure. But after leveling it up to 9 I decided to trade a level 1 Totodile and a level 1 Chikorita from my Diamond game and they’re all around level 10 now. Here’s an update on their stats


Level 12

Nature – Naive (+Speed/-Special Attack)

HP – 33

Attack – 18

Defense – 16

Special Attack – 20

Special Defense – 18

Speed – 26


Level 10

Nature – Timid (+Speed/-Attack)

HP – 32

Attack – 17

Defense – 20

Special Attack – 15

Special Defense – 16

Speed – 16


Level 10

Nature – Lax (+Defense/-Special Defense)

HP – 29

Attack – 16

Defense – 22

Special Attack – 15

Special Defense – 17

Speed – 14

So there’s all my good Pokemon so far! I traded a Bellsprout to a kid in Violet City for an Onix named Rocky (very clever, son).  Right now I’m in Sprout Tower…

Sprout Tower

…getting ready to take on the guys at the top of the tower. After I Ember my way through the Sea of Bellsprouts I’ll go to battle Falkner at the Violet City Gym.

Gold – 1:13 – Update

Well, I started over again… I was stuck in Goldenrod with a pretty horrible team of monsters so I decided to restart and try with a one-man powerhouse team and then go back and train when I need another Pokemon. I know at some point along the line I’m guaranteed a level 20 Sudowoodo and a level 30 Red Gyrados so those will make nice additions to my team.

I picked Cyndaquil (of course) and he’s now a level 16 Quilava. Here’s an update on him…


HP – 50

Attack – 29

Defense – 27

Special Attack – 33

Special Defense – 28

Speed – 37

So he’s pretty fast and pretty high with the Special Attack. Looking good so far for a 16… level… old… yeah…
