Here are a few takeaways:

  • The Greninja run was the easiest, with the lowest level, fewest losses, and shortest time.
  • The Delphox run was similar to the Chesnaught run, particularly in the time spent.
  • The Delphox run may have lost time due to my using the experience share trying to level up a zigzagoon for its pickup ability. It only got one rare candy, so it may not have been worth it.
  • There were a surprising number of losses overall, with many in the beginning.
  • I found my first shiny in the Delphox run. With the help of a friend, it is now in my Pokémon home account.
  • Chesnaught lost to the final AZ fight. Since the game auto saves right before it, and the game continues even if you lose, this run is still a success. This highlights an oddity of this particular game’s run. A failure in this game is being unable to defeat Diantha at Lv. 100.
  • This game was unusually hard despite the use of O-powers. Some battles became possible with them, but much of the time, they were hard even with them.

And that wraps up this Pokémon Starter challenge. Stay tuned for Alpha Sapphire version next!
