    Ok, so I did some critical thinking the other day, and I came up with the idea of a new challenge of using only Pokemon who have been rejected on mainstream teams over the years: gimmick Pokemon! Gimmicks, ranging from the beautiful but frail Butterfree to the amazingly lazy Slaking, come in many different forms, and you must only pick 4 Pokemon to travel with you, but there's a catch. You guessed it: they all have to be rejects!

    Here are all the rules I've made for the gimmilocke:

    1. The one most important rule: you may only use gimmick Pokemon.
    2. You may only use four Pokemon on your team.
    3. You may NOT use your starter (OK, maybe until you can actually catch something).
    4. You must have at least 2 Pokemon, but no more than 4, as mentioned earlier.

    These are the only rules I've thought, any suggestions would be awesome.

    I'll give a list of gimmicks so people won't get confused(NOTE: I won't name every last gimmick, just giving examples. No more suggestions required):

    Kanto:

    Golbat
    Butterfree
    Beedrill
    Farfetch'd
    Ditto
    Clefable
    Eevee (suggested by Snaquaza)
    Flareon

    Johto:
    Unown
    Wobbuffet
    Delibird
    Smeargle
    Shuckle
    Corsola

    Hoenn:
    Sableye
    Shedinja
    Slaking (look, I know it's strong and all, and a lot of people use it, but I think the ability alone is enough to call it a gimmick)
    Plusle
    Minun
    Luvdisc
    Spinda
    Castform
    Clamperl
    Wynaut
    Kecleon

    Sinnoh:
    Wormadam
    Chatot
    Bibarel
    Combee (male only)
    Cherubi (suggested by Snaquaza)
    (Snaquaza, I took out Vespiquen because Combee doesn't evolve when it's a male)

    Unova:
    Watchog
    Basuclin (suggested by Snaquaza)

    Not really much else... again, any suggestions would be awesome.
    EDIT: No more suggestions needed. Just giving a few examples. If you have any questions regarding whether a Pokemon can be used or not, ask on this forum or PM me.

    If you decide to take this challenge, all I can say is...well, good luck!

    Wish for the best,
    Jonathan

    1. Darmanitan-Z is only usable beneath 50% health
    2. Isn't Vespiquen a gimmick too?
    3. I would consider Cherubi, Eevee and Basculin too
