EndQuote's 1K Post White Scramble!
I'm going to be trapped on a plane for hours
on Saturday, so I'm going to start my White Scramble, just for a change of pace.
EndQuote's Stupidly Challenging White Scramble!
Meet the Team:
Holy the Dewott (King Serperior)
Must obtain a moveset of Megahorn/Scald/Dig/Protect.
Must solo all trainer-owned Dark-, Fire-, or Ghost-types or die trying, unless this conflicts with another solo.
Must switch into any Curse-user, and solo them or die trying.
Must hold a Mystic Water.
Lenora and Cilan, by necessity, and Grimsley, by design.
Evolution Status: Dewott
Moveset: Retaliate/Tail Whip/Razor Shell/Focus Energy
Stupidly overleveled and awe-inspiringly powerful, Holy was my only poke for two whole gyms. His soloes of Lenora and Cilan went reasonably well, and, since he acquired Razor Shell, he's been OHKOing nearly everything in sight. Definite MVP for now, though he won't be seeing much use until X and SWAG catch up.
OperationX the Petilil (Arceustar)
Can never use a Super-Effective move.
Can only attack foes suffering from a status condition.
Cheren, every time.
Brycen. (Gods help us all)
Evolution Status: Petilil
Moveset: Growth/Leech Seed/Sleep Powder/Mega Drain
Despite somewhat ridiculous restrictions, X has been a major asset to my team. I'm beginning to remember why I love Petilil, beyond simply being cute. She's reasonably fast, and can shut foes down with Sleep Powder. I gave her a Big Root to hold, so no matter how damaged she is, Leech Seed and Mega Drain can keep her alive. At least, until she faces Brycen. (Gulp)
SWAG SWAG the Scraggy (Tyranitarphantom)
Yet to be Caught:
Must use Swagger immediately every time he is sent out.
Must solo Burgh without items. (3 Attempts)
After three failures, can use one Fresh Water. (2 Attempts)
If successful, ignore Swagger restriction.
If not, it is kept for the rest of the game.
After Burgh, must be renamed BORN AGAIN.
Cannot lead in trainer battles.
Must learn Return.
Cannot use Fighting-type moves, except Focus Punch after the first turn.
Must solo all grunts in Chargestone cave to evolve.
Cannot participate in battle against Ghetsis.
Burgh, N (Chargestone Cave), N (Nimbasa City), three of N's pokes in the final N battle.
Evolution Status: Scraggy
Moveset: Sand-Attack/Faint Attack/Headbutt/Swagger
Freshly caught and in training for his debut solo of Burgh, SWAGsters here has been surprisingly powerful. Swagger is useful for hax, while Faint-Attack and Headbutt wreck everything in sight. I got Shed Skin instead of Intimidate, so I'm going to miss out on Fighting-type moves, but that's okay. I love SWAGasaurus here anyway.
StallMandibuzz's Vengeance the Yamask
Jimera0's Defeatist the Archen
Chinchillers' SexMuffin the Trubbish
Suicidally Soloing Cilan
Going into this battle, I knew I was in trouble. My only poke was Holy the Oshawott, so I had a massive type disadvantage.
After grinding for what seemed like forever (Probably ten minutes, I have a short attention span), I decided it was time to try.
Previous attempts had failed miserably, but I figured out a way to win...
As Cilan's Lillipup spammed Work Up, I used an X Defend and an X Speed.
Taking a Bite in stride, Holy used Focus Energy, completing my plan of setting up.
Water Gun easily 3HKOed Lillipup, despite Cilan's best efforts with a Potion, but the battle was far from over...
I healed Holy with a Potion, smiling as I watched Vine Whip glance off his boosted Defense.
I spammed Tackle for the win, the last one critting, (Thanks Focus Energy!), as Vine Whip barely missed a 4HKO.
TRIO BADGE GET!
Lenora Learns a Lesson
With a newly evolved Dewott, I wasn't too worried going into this battle.
I knew if I could survive a single boosted retaliate, I would win.
Up first was Herdier, who OHKOed the HM slave I sent out to sponge Intimidate.
I sent out Holy, looking as badass as ever. (Seriously, Dewott is awesome)
The first Razor Shell got a lucky Defense drop, while Herdier's Take Down missed.
A second Razor Shell KOed the unlucky dog. One down!
Up next, Holy took a boosted Retaliate, putting him into the red, but managed to slam Watchog with a Razor Shell.
I healed up with a Fresh Water, Holy enjoying a brief Hypnosis-induced nap before his Chesto Berry woke him up.
Dodging a second Hypnosis, Holy got the KO with a final Razor Shell.
BASIC BADGE GET!
