shinyskarmory, you get the unspecial version of your avatar. Skarmory. This Skarmory is new to the mainland having arrived from another trainer; as such he is not very well known. At this point, he cannot battle if another Pokemon has participated in the battle, and he must solo all battles he enters (obviously, the use of moves such as Roar by the opponent is excepted). However, things change after he solos Crasher Wake. The whole Pokemon community knows about him now, and from then on he may never solo a Pokemon or Trainer again unless you have no other option (until after the Candice battle), and must participate in every Double Battle. However, eventually this popularity takes its toll. After you defeat Candice, he goes into depression and can only use STAB moves, and must solo at least one Trainer. And then, he is defeated by Volkner (this MUST happen, he MUST be defeated by Volkner), and his popularity takes a tumble. Now, he returns to his original restriction (battling alone) and keeps the STAB-only rule. Skarmory is going through a tough spot in life right now, and the only thing that can help him out is a trip through Iron Island (yes, you must put off Iron Island in its entirety until now). After defeating Team Galactic, he comes back into the limelight... sort of. He can now use whatever moves he wants. However, he must battle alone until he finally solos Aaron in the Elite Four (I think that's his name, he uses Bugs), at which point he is accepted back into society and all restrictions are lifted.
