White Teamwork Scramble
WHITE TEAMWORK SCRAMBLE - MAIN POST
Here they are then: My team of Heroes for my next epic scramble. It looks like it's gonna be quite a hard run; three pure grass types give me less versatility than your average mono-type scramble. But then again, I do like a little challenge! After restructuring and organizing the main post, I must say I'm pretty pleased with the challanges. You all did a great job. Although, I was quite surprised by the absence of stuff like Baton Pass, T-wave, Trick Room, Tail Wind, Sunny Day, Memento, Wish, Screens, U-turn, Lightning Rod, Flash Fire etc. Oh well, you missed your chance! I'm sorry to have editted your posts a little; but I like to have a stuctured overview of my challanges and achievements. I'll add links to the OP's to each pokemon later.
Nathan the Cottonee (Cyberspeed)
Nathan is one of my favorite Characters of all time. He is from a TV show called 'Misfits', where he has Immortality. Why Cottonee? Nathan has a kind of afro and so does Cottonee. It gets Prankster and Nathan is also a Prankster. Nathan is quite a troll, so his moveset will be:
- Leech Seed
- Razor Leaf
- Swagger (ASAP)
None. (Cyberspeed, if you happen to read this, you may PM me with a Team Restriction involving ANY of the other six pokemon and I will gladly put it in)
Gym Assignment (Elesa):
Defeat a female Gym Leader; Nathan will defeat one of her pokemon by residual damage and confuse half of her Pokemon. Nathan can evolve to a Whimsicott after the Gym Assignment is complete.
Final Challange (0/0/10):
As a Whimsicott, Nathan becomes a tad confused between which gender he likes. He must KO 10 Pokemon owned by a girl and 10 owned by a guy, to help make up his mind. After this, you can change up to two of his moves.
Simon the Sunkern (Axmaster68)
During his childhood Simon looks up to Nathan as a father and wants to be like him. As such, he must learn Double Team and battle Lenora with his father.
With that done, he moves on to a rebellious stage; his adolescence. In this stage, he cannot know any of the moves his father does, and cannot be in a double battle with his father. His father is forcing him to do these things, as he must finish his homework.
In college he learns to be more gentle and balanced: Now, he can't use any moves above 50 BP and must carry one attack of each type. He also loves to party and must land at least 1 status move on each GLMP in the next three gyms. He also wants to be more included in the group, so he passes a status move to his friend Valter during 5 trainer battles in Twist Mountain. After this is done, he finally has reached adulthood, and can evolve.
As a Sunflora, Simon is now the most gentle of his peers, and wants to use his attacking moves as little as possible. He must always status a pokemon before he can attack them, and on any in major battles, they must miss one move first. He also wants to help his teammates, and must participate in each double battle you come to face.
As a senior, he is quite old, and loves to relax.
Teach him Protect for this part if you haven't already; Deflecting a move with Protect counts as missing a move for the adult stage. He meets his old friend from college: Tank 5 SE hits for Valter the Cranidos. He still has a little kick in him, and wants to show the world what seniors can do. Complete the final challenge so he can retire in style.
Teamwork Restriction (0/4):
Homework (0/5): Simon must defeat your rival's starter by hitting it with 5 attacks, then statusing it, and switching out. The pokemon you switch in must use the status given to the opponent to their advantage, and they must finish off that pokemon with only residual damage. He must do this 5 times and can only know Physical Attacks, Status Moves and Mega Drain for the duration of his homework.
Friends (0/0/5): He must pass a status move (Leech Seed) to his friend Valter during 5 trainer battles in Twist Mountain.
During his senior years he must Tank 5 SE Hits for Valter and vice versa.
Seniors kick ass (0/5): Simon must take part in every E4 battle on the second time and must KO at least one pokemon in every battle (not solo, KO).
Gym Assignment (Lenora): Use Double Team to defeat Lenora with Nathan, his dad and partner in life. When it comes to his part, he must defeat one pokemon using only 2 moves, one of which must be Double Team, and the other a status move that is not Toxic. He must tank 2 hits without healing before he can use Double Team.
Final Challange: He still is dissapointed in the evil Team Plasma, and wants them defeated ASAP. So, he must attack N every time you face him from then on, and he must try to land the final blow on the last of Ghestis's pokemon.
Valter the Cranidos (gamer40000)
Valter, to all you FE8 fans, is a major villain, and is pretty much your guide to be absolutely evil. Because of that, he is my hero. Valter has to have an 80% accuracy move, because that is his hit% in the first battle with him.
None really (you may PM me something small for this)
Gym Assignment (Skyla):
Like he left Seth wounded on the battlefield, he must deal 50% or more damage against a dual-type in a gym. But he must not deal enough damage to kill. Then, have Simon finish him off. Also, in reference to Valter's two Wyvern Riders, he must finish a Gym Leader's pokemon after Nathan and Simon deal damage to it. Note that this is during Nathan and Simon's Gym Assignments.
Final Challange (0/5):
Since he killed Glen and Cormag (a fellow general and his brother), he must switch out of a looming attack to Simon, have him take the hit and use a status move, then switch Nathan in to that same Pokemon, then switch to Valter and have him kill the Pokemon. This can be done during any rival battle.
Nurse Joy the Audino (EndQuote)
This Audino, like Nurse Joy, spends all her time caring for and helping your other Pokémon. Teach her Heal Pulse ASAP. She can never forget this move. In double and triple battles, Nurse Joy cannot directly attack, as she is too busy supporting and caring for the Pokémon next to her. Potions can never be used on Nurse Joy, nor any other kind of healing item except revives, as she doesn't want to waste valuable medical supplies.
Nurse Joy's entire family was killed by Burn
status. She is so terrified of it, that, if a member of your team contracts this status, Nurse Joy must switch in as you heal the afflicted team member of his/her status. Once your team is healthy again, Joy must solo the foe who inflicted the status or die trying.
Gym Assignment (0/3):
In at least three gym battles, you must switch in Nurse Joy before using any potions, revives, or other healing-related items.
Final Challenge (Caitlin):
Nurse Joy gets confused by Caitlin, because she also looks like a Nurse. In this battle, Joy must switch in on one of Caitlin's injured pokes (less than half health) and heal it with Heal Pulse.
UnSmugLeaf the Snivy (Treadshot A1)
This Snivy is a hero for two reasons: a) it's a Smugleaf. That's heroic. B) it's a Smugleaf who's not smug. That's how heroic he is.
This Snivy really doesn't like being better than everyone else. He does things the opposite way to what people think, in fact, he might do the contrary (joke intended). Snivy doesn't think that perversity is really necessary. He can use Leaf Storm just fine, thank you very much. And he can switch out afterwards because he's sure his teammates will help him out. Well, except Audino. He won't switch out to her.
Team Restriction (0/1):
He does somewhat admire Audino's selflessness, so he must let himself be healed by Audino (in any way, shape or form) just to prove he isn't completely against her. Just once though. No need to risk being healed by that HP EV giving machine more than once. But he likes everyone else, so he'll switch to any of them, straight after using Leaf Storm.
Gym Assignment (Burgh):
All Snivy has to do is make damned sure that he leads the party and he has to make sure Audino doesn't have to do her job of healing the party of Poison
. Because frankly he doesn't trust her with medicine anyways. He can get the other four party members to help him out on this one, because he's not as smug as the usual Smugleaf. Just don't let that nurse Pokemon do anything, and your gym assignment is done.
Final Challenge (Champion):
Show that you don't have to be smug to get through the Champion. Let your friends do the work, don't take it all on yourself. Let Snivy stay in the sixth slot of your party. And don't bring it out until at least 2 Pokemon have fainted. And if Audino is alive, don't let her heal Snivy! Her medicine isn't to be trusted.. It's an Audino. It's good for HP EVs and nothing else. ;)
SteveIrwin the Sandile (King Serperior)
1) Because this great man was killed by an evil Stingray, any ray-like Pokemon (Stunfisk, Elektross) cannot be in battle with this Sandile. If Sandile is your last poke when this happens, restart at your last save. If you have a non-fainted teammate, switch to it ASAP, as in NOW. If you have a revive and all of your team minus Sandile is fainted, restart at your last save because you will not have enough time to revive then switch.
2). Steve Irwin loved his dog in life and cannot bear to see her hurt. Sandile feels the same towards dog-like Pokemon. May not harm any dog-like Pokemon unless he is your last.
3). Solo any trained reptilian Pokemon you meet because Steve Irwin was the Crocodile Hunter!
4). Steve Irwin did his best not to directly harm any animals, so have him know 3 non-Attacking moves ASAP. His only offensive attack cannot be more than 70BP.
If SteveIrwin ever gets Paralyzed or Poisoned, heal him ASAP!! You cannot let him die like that again!! If you are more than 150 steps away from someone who can heal him, restart from your last save unless you can heal him yourself. I cannot bear to see him die again.During a trainer battle, Nurse Joy must switch in to heal Steve of his ailment.
Gym Assignment (Clay):
Steve Irwin needs some team support to take out that sorry excuse for a copy of him, Jeff Corwen: A.K.A. Clay. How do you do this? Simple:
1). Status all of his pokes with one
2). Lower their health by about 75% using UnSmugleaf and Valter.
3). Finish them off with SteveIrwin.
Final Challange (Drayden):
Evolve Sandile into Krokorok 20 levels above what it usually evolves at. If you manage to do what you did with Clay on a gym leader after him, you may have one non-attacking move replaced by a move of 50BP or less.
Rincewind the Abra (Professor Science)
Rincewind is a failed wizard who is a coward and only knows one spell, but he always saves the day (usually by accident), but he's a hero anyway. Since Rincewind barely even knows how to use spells, he may only use a special attack three times per gym badge obtained, ever (24 times total). Finally, since Rincewind never passed Unseen University to become a real wizard, he may never evolve into Alakazam.
Rincewind must Teleport/Switch whenever his hp is under 50%. He always gets Steve Irwin to take his place in battle, because he is a True Hero. Added: If any member happens to be boxed but is summoned for a team restriction, Rincewind must substitute for them (unless he's below 50% and will Teleport regardless)
Gym Assignment (Brycen):
Rincewind must lead the party in the battle against Brycen, and must use Teleport at least once against each of Brycen's pokemon (because he is always terrified), and must teleport to each member of the party (to avoid battling as much as possible), but must land the final blow against his last pokemon because he is also secretly a True Hero. (teleport restrictions and hp restriction is lifted for this battle.)
Final Challange (0/24):
Since Rincewind barely even knows how to use spells, he may only use a special attack three times per gym badge obtained, ever (24 times total).
Chapter 1: WIP
Let's leave some room for those updates, eh!
Ah, the clean slate of a new challange! The bliss that comes from total ignorance on future hardships and frustrations. One by one, I get to unwrap my Christmas Presents; tailor made Scramble 'Mon who will soon join my little band of heroes on my quest through Unova. And like heroes we will scramble; each pokemon will hopefully bring their unique flavor to the challange at hand. But I also vow to do things differently this time. None of that "solo this dude here" or "must defeat that gal with only one move" anymore. No, instead I will learn my team to work together, whether they like it or not. In fact, I'm going to try and use every pokemon on my team during major battles to make sure that they all get a little bit of screentime. But none of that selfish soloing crap. Soloing is soooo 2011!
An extensive breeding programme has resulted in 6 pokemon eggs that will hatch my remaining heroes. I have travelled all over my Black Cardridge to get that special pokemon or TM, needed for the challange. With everything out of the way, I restart my White cardridge to start this epic adventure:
*Professor Juniper does the mandatory introductions*
I'm already bummed out about not being able to name the Rival. Being able to name him 'derp' before the frustrating battle is one of my favorite parts.
*A flock of Woobat flies over the town* Yay! (Doesn't hate them just yet)
Alright! More presents! *Gets to pick Snivy* I dub thee UnSmugleaf! (Seriously, how many people have given the nickname Smugleaf to a scramble mon before? I've even scrambled with a Chikorita named Smugleaf.. Maybe we should all just stop handing out that name for a while, no?)
Yes! UnSmugleaf, the not so smug, but still quite smug Snivy, scores a critical hit on his first attack! It this an omen of heroism? Probably not, as I'm already disappointed in the damage it does. I guess Snivy could go special, right?
*The room looks like a scene from 'Gremlins'* Hey, how did these footprints manage to get on the roof? This house must be infested.. -_- I love the mums reaction: No, No! I'll just get the servants to clean stuff up.
Man, Cheren is already annoying, and I haven't even left the town! Dude, stop sucking up to the professor like that!
*Bianca wants a little contest* Pokeball, go go go! *Catches an Army of Patrat* Hah! Am I cool or what! Imagine this is your scramble team: 6 fucking Patrat, that can't ever evolve! *Thinks about this for a while* Nah, I'd rather trade them for my super awesome, heroic pokemon instead.
*Ghetsis does the little speech, afterwards N shows up*
N: "I can hear your pokemon talking" Um.. have you been forgetting your medicine again? I'll call the nice men in the white coats to bring the van around. No? N: "Let me hear the voices of your pokemon!" Sigh.. oh well: "Army of Patrat, Go Go Go!" *The level 2-4 Patrat ultimately smush the Purrloin*
*Gets the running shoes* After so many generations, I still don't get why I need special shoes for this.. Am I to assume that my character walks around on high heels for the first leg of the game and therefore can't run?
*More battles, smash Bianca, get to Striaton*
Heh, what's that weirdo doing behind the building? *Goes over there to talk, against better judgement* "Blahblahblah, Dusk, Blahblahblah, Dark Alley blahblahblah selling drugs blahblah, don't you agree?" Um ... *runs away*
In the school: Hey, a quiz a about status! Where's Nurse Joy when you really need her? *Cheren challenges me to a battle* Wait.. so you want to test out some items on MY pokemon? I don't think so, mister; Decline! (Hey, I can actually decline his ass.. oh no wait.. it's probably one of those gamefreak moments where they like to pretend that you have a choice when we both know Cheren is due a good ass whoopin') *does so* .. even my Army of Patrat gets some action as I switch and heal Snivy. Screw it, next scramble I'm taking an Army of Patrat!
In the Dream Yard: Hey, it's youngster Yoey! And he's still trolled with useless rats! I'm guessing his Patrat is in the top percentage too, then. *Snivy uses wrap* OMG! That sprite is deforming.. how ugly!
In the Gym: "Welcome I'm Clyde, take a complementary potion." Well, well.. that's nice. I guess. But I'd rather check out that waitress first. Can I get a Burger whilest smushing these gymtrainers?
Waitress: "Today's Special Trainer deluxe! I'm your second course!" (I wish!)
*Challanges Cilan* I'm too lazy to put this down.. Read this post for the exact same sequence of events. (I will speak of no solo in this update!) *The trio badge slides nicely animated into the badge case* Finally, lets get rid of this useless Army of Patrat and hatch the team!
No, Fennel appears; "My name is Fennel and as you can see, I'm a scientist" *points to the little science kit and white coat* Um.. I'm going to have to see some better credentials, love! Wait, why is there a bed hooked up to a big machine? And you're telling me that your (test) subjects happen to be trainers? Oh, I see.. I have to bring some "dream mist" for the machine. *gets all kinds of Frankenstein referenced from that*
*Team Plasma appears* "Who are you? We? We're team plasma, we battle night and day to liberate pokemon from foolish humans." (oh okay, I'm sorry to have asked).. "We're going to manipulate peoples hearts by showing them their dreams" Isn't that what drugs are for? No, this is just retarded. What happened to evil team rocket and their whips?
*Battles both grunts* Hey Dream Ghetsis! Throw a Dream Ball! Man, they sure aren't subtile with their story And then Bianca actually has to spell it out too.. Well thank you Captain Obvious! Aha, Fennel appears to collect the mist.. If it was so important, why didn't you just get the stuff yourself in the first place!! Oh-ho! Musharna and Munna leave.. but not before Munna craps out a pokeball. (Really! That's how it looks!)
Finally, that is done! *Trades over his army of Patrat for a bunch of eggs*
*Insert aimless walking around until stuff hatches*
*Insert grinding to level 10, with more aimless walking for the second batch of eggs*
Okay, Audino 1 has Healer. No thanks. Yes! Number two has Modest and Regenerator. Much better. I also succeeded in breeding Wish on it, got Fire Fang on Sandile from my old Stoutland and got Encore and Prankster on Nathan. Great.
Before I go any further, I must trade my entire team back to Black to use some final TM's: Valter gets Rock Tomb (80% move ASAP), Simon gets Double Team, Rincewind gets Reflect and Hidden Power and Nathan gets Substitute and Swagger. I'm not too happy at this point: Cyberspeed, do your goddamn research! I can only get TM Substitute in WINTER!! I had to trade to get that one! Next time I'm abusing the loophole and say, ASAP is in April! Also, the battle subway is needed for Swagger. I should have kept Stun Spore here and abused the loophole. Congratulations! You just cost me two days! Okay, that was the feature rant. Now that everything is set, it doesn't bother me anymore.
*Heads to route 2 to crush a bunch of Pre-scholers* I feel cheap doing this.
After a match with Cheren: Oh, a girl lost her pokemon. "What? You're telling me it was a Chimchar named Vanguard?" Hmm.. you might want to save yourself the frustration and just leave it.. No? Okay, I'll get it back. Let the men do all the work here.
*Enters cave with Cheren* Cool a double Battle, Go Nathan! (Double Leech Seed is just really sneaky). *Switches to Nurse Joy* Oh, shit! I don't have Heal Pulse yet.. I guess Helping Hand will have to substitute the challange until I get it.
*Grinding in Wellspring Cave* Ugh.. I already hate Woobat. Stun Spore seems to miss every single time on them and Gust kills half my team. And every time I run, it fails! (In the notes the ranting went on for quite a bit, I must have been really annoyed with not escaping them).
*The team smushes the trainers in Pinwheel*
Aha, N! We meet again! Still talking to trees I presume? *N goes on about wanting to catch a legendary pokemon in order to free other pokemon* Look, this seems like a good cue to end this whole silly conversation.
In Narcene Gym: Sigh.. Game Freak is notorious for their tedious quiz questions.. Can't they ever come up with some real questions? It's always something where they misphraze some tedious little detail and expect us to pick up on it. Apricots and Apricorns in HG's radio tower were one of the trolliest ones.
Question: "If you heat it up in a pot, it will be delicious; what is it?" Um.. Tepig Stroganoff?
Alright, here we go! The first gym assigment. And it's quite a complicated one. Now; the main rule is to use my full team of pokemon, and every pokemon must be allowed to use at least two moves per gym fight. My unwritten rule is to try and keep each team member alive during the entire fight, but I might end up breaking that rule in later gyms.
Simon the Sunkern must personally defeat one pokemon with Leech Seed and Double Team. But, he must also tank two hits without healing before he can set up. To make things even more interesting, Valter must deliver the finishing blow on Watchhog and Nathan must use Swagger on each of Lenora's pokemon.
I lead with SteveIrwin and his Intimidate. He can't actually hurt the Herdier, because it reminds him of his beloved dog, but he can atleast Sand Attack and Torment the dog. In the winning match I go for one Sand Attack, because with two the Herdier is completely screwed and will miss every Take Down on Simon, thus failing the “tank two hits” restriction. I just gotta add here: SteveIrwin is a BEAST!!
Okay, next up is Nurse Joy, I go for Growl while the dog hits with Retailiate. Time to pass a Wish back to Steve the Sandile for Intimidate number two. I switch to Nathan to Swagger the dog and fish for some confuse hax using a Substitute. SteveIrwin comes back in to get rid of Swagger's attack boosts. Rincewind comes in to safely set up Reflect and Simon is all set to go.
I leech seed and the dogs HP starts sapping away (Take Down misses and it Leers).. Come on!! Hit already! Finally a Take Down and a bite hit, and Simon is ready to Double Team. Lol! Takedown is soo useless. Lenora uses a potion, but can't even land a hit as Simon just trolls even further with Double Team.
One pokmon down. The watchhog comes out.. Lol! I'm at +6 evasion what could it do?
*Hypnosis Sleeps, Retailiate OHKO's*
What the.. oh! Keen eye apparently works on evasion boosts too..
Okay, this time I'l get SteveIrwin to Intimidate and get Nurse Joy to tank some hits and Growl. Nathan uses a few Substitutes to scout for a Hypnosis. Finally! I'm free to Swagger and switch back to Rincewind. He sets up Reflect while hypnosis misses and the Watchog hits itself in confusion! Rincewind get the hell out of there! It has Crunch!
Simon is finally save behind a screen to tank another hit and he gets his Leech Seed in. That just leaves one more thing: Valter resists every attack and can now savely enter the arena to finish this battle with his powerfull headbutt. Badge Get!
After the battle Rincewind evolves into a Kadabra. I'm just going to let him. I'd like him to learn moves by level up. (Abra just got trolled really hard by gamefreak in this department. I'd keep Abra around if it wasn;'t for this evil gamegreak curse)
