|Brock:||Time: 0:48||Time: 0:39||Time: 0:28|
|Misty:||Time: 1:34||Time: 1:36||Time: 1:17|
|Losses:||None||Misty (3 losses)||1st Lass|
|Lt.Surge:||Time: 3:02||Time: 2:29||Time: 2:10|

|Giovanni:||Time: 6:32||Time: 5:19||Time: 5:02|
|Elite 4:||Time: 7:09||Time: 5:52||Time: 5:35|
So there are a few takeaways and oddities here:
- The Venusaur run had the most time, but the second fewest losses.
- The Vanusaur run also had the highest level, for some reason. I don’t recall too many additional battles.
- The Blastoise run had the best time and fewest losses.
- The Charizard run had the most losses.
- The Venusaur run lost a lot of time between Misty and Lt. Surge. I vaguely remember taking a phone call at the time and not putting the game in sleep mode, as well as catching enough Pokemon to get the Flash HM around that time, which wasted some time.
- I also got careless in the early game with in all three runs.
- The game got a lot easier after Misty in all three runs.
- Average run time: 6:12
- I most likely was going through the game more quickly each time, due to being more familiar with the game. This trend may continue.
- I also was adjusting what the rules were partway through the first run. I decided not to defeat the optional second rival fight after losing to him on the first run, for example.
This has been a fun experiment. The next journey will be in silver version. After that is complete, this article will be updated with a link to that game’s results, as well as each subsequent games’ results. Stay tuned!
