"Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people."
-Karen of the Johto Elite Four
My research has always been based on that basic fact; that there is no truly 'strongest' Pokemon. That the only way Pokemon can be 'strong' is if their potential is brought out. I have seen that Ghetsis' approach, of forcing Pokemon to do one's dirty work, by using them as tools, is unfeasible. And a certain trainer has shown me that love might be the best way to bring out the inner strength of Pokemon...as such, I will undergo a trial of this hypothesis. I will take 6 Pokemon, whose personalities would be considered 'abnormal', and take them through the toughest challenge Unova has to offer. Unova's Challenge, to be precise; the White Treehollow.
My first Pokemon I found was one that I found observing other, more competitive Trainers battle. It was a Tentacool. And it saw both Trainers using specially-based, Rapid-Spinning Tentacruel. And it decided it wanted none of that. It wanted to defy expectations, to be physically-based instead, as it believed it was 'cooler'. As such, named it Cooler. I also gave it Leftovers, the 'hipster' version of Black Sludge.
My second, a familiar face. I caught my Rotom that I use competitively when I was battling abroad, and I happened to snag another one. I decided it was time for it to choose an Appliance to inhabit, but I was surprised. It chose the Cutter Fan. Quite an...unorthodox choice as a weapon. As such, I named it Fan. And because it seemed to want to spread glitter everywhere with its fan, I gave it BrightPowder.
The third member of my team was a Riolu I acquired during a brief tenure with Professor Burnet, who is studying the Interdream Zone. I volunteered to give it a home. It knew that it was somehow 'destined' to learn four moves, the last four moves, it naturally learned, and nothing could stop it from doing so. As such, I named it Level Up. I evolved it into Lucario, and gave it a Lucky Egg, to aid it on its journey.
Fourth was a Druddigon I encountered in Victory Road. It seemed to be a 'purist' of battle, wanting to fight with only its nails and fangs. Therefore, I named it FangN'Claw and gave it a Razor Claw, to extend this 'purist' feeling.
Fifthly I encountered a rather shaken Pokemon who needed a loving home. An Altaria, whose heart had been locked away no less than twice, was suffering from severe shock. It could only learn moves it could know in the Orre region, its homeland. Additionally, it had somehow gained the ability to cancel weather. I named it 3D, for its three disorders(which I will keep private, for its sake), and gave it a Pure Incense, to calm its nerves.
And the sixth and last team member was a Sandile. I found it on a beach in the desert, forlornly looking out to sea. I suppose it wanted to swim with its reptilian brethren. It was wearing a strange Blue Scarf, that somehow made it more beautiful. It feels spurred to battle at the very sight of water. so, I named it Achiever.
With these Pokemon at my side, I hope to accomplish my goal of clearing Unova's Challenge, proving my hypothesis correct.
