Re: Monomon [xD] Challenge
I think I might try this. Charizard would probably be the easiest to get through the game with (except for Lorielle, as you're finding out State Alchemist Patrick). My favorite of the three is Venusaur, but even that isn't as versitile as Blastoise (due to Blastoise being able to learn Ice moves).
This'll be a tough decision, I'll probably update again tomorrow when I make my decision.
