[Checkpoint 9] Pokémon League

Checkpoint 9

Yeah, I know, I am almost six weeks late. I won't do any commentary or joke on this this time. Given my lateness, I won't be picky with the submissions, and I decided all of the seven participants who've beat the League can compete to the Top Performers. You can applause them.

Top Performers (Checkpoint 9)
First submitter: Bramblebear (8th June, 5:28AM GMT)
Last submitter: EatPotatoz (19th June, 10:44AM GMT)
Most Seen: Magneton (37 Pokémon)

Speedrunner: tvbo (9 hours 52 minutes)
Slow and Steady: shadowlucario50 (178 hours 35 minutes)

The Fallen (Checkpoint 9)
cabbage man: normal run, OpenEmu

Optional Checkpoints
The mandatory playthrough is now finished. For the Kanto region, we decided to divide its exploration in 5 optional checkpoints: 2 badges per checkpoint, plus a checkpoint to go to the summit of Mount Silver and battle Red.
Each checkpoint ends the next sunday, with the last checkpoint's end being the real deadline: July 19h at 6PM GMT.
The optional checkpoints should all be gathered in one forum post, once we reach the deadline above.
