I really hope I'm not stupid and have miscounted. There seems to only be four Pokemon so far, so in that case I'll reserve for Mystic. Will edit in shortly. :D
EDIT: MysticZap, your team is (disregarding Treadshot's choose-able challange) extremely Electric-weak. The solution to this? Give you something neutral to Electric. Duh.
You get Brilliance
. A friendly reminder that Girafarig can be caught on Routes 43
. (Sorry this challenge is kind of late in the game, by the way, but it's really all I could make work!) EDIT: I guess theoretically you could head to Mahogany right after defeating Morty in Ecruteak and getting Surf. This would allow you to get Girafarig before her level becomes usurped into obscurity and allows you to have her for Chuck. Smart, right?
Girafarig is, of course, a Psychic beast, and is in-tune with the majesty that is the Nether (or something?) Because of this, it wants to be in-tune with a Psychic Pokemon that you have known before. To satisfy this demand, whenever you first go to the Ruins of Alph (before or after Falkner, basically) you must activate and capture an Unown from the Ruins.
Take this Unown and use its Hidden Power for a few battles to see which type it is (you know, based on effectiveness versus opposing Pokemon). If you've fought every Pokemon near Violet and still can't determine the type of your Hidden Power, then assume it falls under Category X
, which I'll explain in a second.
Once you've discovered the type of your Unown's Hidden Power, you may Box it, but remember the type! Your Girafarig must learn one move of this Unown's Hidden Power type, either by TM or Level-Up, before you finish facing all the Kanto Gyms. Here's a handy list
of moves Girafarig can learn.
If the Hidden Power of your Unown is either a type that Girafarig cannot learn a move of (such as Dragon) or you were unable to discover it (Category X) you may teach it any TM move of your choosing. This move that corresponds to the Unown's Hidden Power can be either a damaging or status move, so choose wisely. It may also never be unlearned.
In addition, to counter your Electric weakness, you must teach your Girafarig the Earthquake TM that is found in Victory Road. Unless you really want to give it to someone else, I guess. I won't be too cruel, just if you don't have anyone to use it on, make Brilliance learn it.
For the second part of the challenge, Girafarig is upset that it can't evolve. What a load of crap! Now it can't have any evolutionary restrictions! But you know who does evolve? And who has a typing that Girafarig is weak to?
KOGA'S ARIADOS! That bastard. Use Girafarig to deny Koga's Ariados any joy in life. Thankfully it's part Poison so you can just kill it off with Psychic or something. But yeah. Girafarig is mad.
-One move that matches the type of an Unown's Hidden Power.
-Possibly Earthquake, unless you need to give it to someone else.
-Defeat Koga's Ariados in a battle to the death.
