    My pokemon's that I will only catch:
    Bulbasaur
    Articuno
    Lapras
    Exeggutor
    Jynx
    MewTwo

    They will be my only pokemon I will catch well and probably a TM whore. Therefore I will only 5 pokemons to defeat the E4 the first time. ^^

    @G Man, I used random Generator you just got unlucky. You can get them at the game center.

    The player who completes the game with his starter not being fully evolved will be given +8 points

    Yeh, my Bulbasaur just ignored me and envolved. I assume that will happen and evolve to Venasaur. I'll give you guys a update later.

    Activity log:
    Ivysaur - 43
    Gym Badges - 4
    Still yet to catch my other five Pokemon
    location: Cermillion town

    Can I just finish the game with Ivysaur only?
