We've all done it before, whether it's intentional or not. That one Pokemon we use for everything, so it winds up getting the bulk of the experience. It could've been that Charizard that's got so many levels it can take on water types (just because you wanted a Charmeleon to be ready for Brock), the Butterfree that's been holding its own just because it's had psychic moves in its movepool. Odds are - we've all, at one time or another, had a team of L78,L42,L30,L15, HM slave, HM slave when walking into the Elite Four. Some of us have even tried L80 + HM slaves. My girlfriend, for example, did a HeartGold run not too long ago using only her favourite Pokemon - Lapras. The battle against Red was amazing. So, it's theoritically possible go walk through the game using a single Pokemon, as long as you've got enough levels, right? then it dawned on me...what about Shedinja? Is THAT possible? And so, Smogon, I pose the following challenge to whomever is willing to accept it. these are my restrictions; 1) Choose a game, 3rd gen and above. I'd like to see it done in any gen, and I'll be attempting this myself. 2) import a Nincada egg - level to 20, and grab yourself that Sheddy. 3) start pwning gyms. L20 against Gym1 sounds easy, but remember - it's usually a rock gym...1 hit, and you're dead. 4) no revives. if your Sheddy dies, it's a whiteout. no using HM slaves to revive/take hits. if you see that Sky Attack charging, you may NOT switch your cutting Ratatta into it. 5) don't even TRY to just import in a zillion Focus Sashes. you will NOT have time to load in as many as you'll need. find another way. Of course, some stuff may be tough to impossible. Wanna get through the desert, or fight Red? Rain Dance may well be a necessity...have to fight a Sharpedo or Forretress to continue? maybe some non-contact moves would be optimal...Enemy Machop has Foresight?...ok, maybe that's a boon, but that's not the point... And so, fellow Smogonites, I present this to you. Beat a game using a single Shedinja. Good luck, and I await the results (and possibly warstories) of anyone stalwart enough to attempt this.
