lol rehash of one epic challange I gave
As can be easily deduced from its name, Hydrophobe has been afraid of water since birth. No one knows quite why, but it seems to have involved a Wailord, a Psyduck and some place called "Solaceon". Oh well.
Anyway, Hydrophobe can't stand to be anywhere near water at all - not Water-type Pokemon, not Water moves, nothing.
Hence, its first restriction is that it can't fight any Water-type Pokemon. Simple enough, and quite easy! How nice of me.
Its second restriction is that it can't use any Water-type moves. No STAB? Never mind, should be fine, right?
Its third restriction is as such: you know how all Potions are water-based, right? No Potions or any other PokeMart-bought healing items. Uh-oh. Of course, if you force it to use such items, it can't help it, but it will flail around in your bag, knocking out P1500 worth of items.
For its fourth restriction, you need to know that the healing process in Pokemon Centres involve water. Lots of it. No Pokemon Center visits for it. It can still be forced to go for healing, but if it is, P3000 worth of items get pushed out of your bag. o.O
As you progress, you eventually reach Solaceon, the source of its fear. Hydrophobe feels the need to conquer its fear; leave it in the Day-Care for 48 real-world hours, or 3 ingame hours, whichever is shorter.
After this time, you can take it out, and it feels a bit better. The first and restriction is no longer in place.
Solo the entirety of Crasher Wake's Gym
to help it overcome another fear, its fear of large amounts of water. After this, restriction 4 is no longer intact.
But its two other fears still remain,
and it can't do anything about these! So, it wants to go around its fears and show you that it's still as useful as your other Pokemon. No potions? It can still go long times without those things, like soloing 50 Pokemon in a row without potions
No Water-type moves? No worries! It shows you that it can still solo Bertha and Flint.
Good Luck; Have Fun!
