Anyway, I managed to defeat her despite her carrying literally the worst Pokemon possible for my team as her ace. Thank heavens for screwed-up AI.
After her, it's the Elite Four, and then I can opt into Kanto or opt out of it as I please.
I should probably do Mono-Poison. It's not that the run itself is hard, it's that typing up all the dialogue wears on my nerves. Meh...
At least I beat Clair. After these two runs, if I do ANYTHING in Gens I+II, it will be a Yellow Rocketlocke (with Pikachu allowed) -> a Gold Rocketlocke [-> an Emerald Rocketlocke?], a MonoPoison Silver [->MonoPoison Sapphire], and a Vietnamese Crystal run. (For the Rocketlockes, I'll be playing with Absolute Promotion Clause on, so no Meowths for me in Gen II - so I lose nothing by playing in Gold.)
For the Rocketlockes, I'll be catching whatever comes up first on the route and using whatever's allowed, so I don't need to check locations. I know I'll get loads of Rattatas (/Poochyenas for Emerald), so I'll at least be able to start the game. (And heaven help me if I end up doing a Rattata (/Poochyena)-only run...)
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to compile Poison-type locations from these two FAQs.

GOOD FECKIN' GAD, IT'S GOING TO BE PURE ZUBATS THROUGH THE E
Well, I was thinking of introducing a Zubat subplot for the Silver MonoPoison run, so... yay. That will be... fun. Good thing that run isn't coming up for a while...
