    EndQuote, take a Swords Dance Tentacruel. It may not learn special or team support moves, before you think of using the typical Tenta with SD tacked on.

    Tentacruel @ Life Orb
    Whatever ability you want
    Adamant / Jolly
    Pick an EV spread you like
    - Swords Dance
    - Waterfall
    - Poison Jab
    - Return / Knock Off

    @EndQuote: You get Gambler the Machamp (or Eviolite Machoke if you prefer). It must have Dynamicpunch and Metronome, the latter of which must be used immediately the moment it first gets sent out. The rest is up to you.

    Or, if you want something more OU, take Assassin the Metagross. It likes to be agile and stab things, so it must have Agility and three STAB moves.

    Sorry QWAZ, but I really want to get started, so that reservation is only going to last another hour. After that, anybody can contribute.
    EDIT: Right, that two-hour reservation has expired. Anybody else got a poke?

    You said two mons, right Endquote?

    Take Suicidal the Staraptor.

    This SubRoosting birdy is Reckless and Brave birding everything in sight. It likes to get up close and personal in its combat techniques.

    -Substitute
    -Roost
    -Brave Bird
    -Close Combat

    Take them out!!

    Well, fairly hasty in changing the game you wish to scramble, very well then.

    You get Hasty the Cyndaquil.

    Hasty is very hasty, & is very fast, refusing to slow down. As a result, the Cyndaquil you get must be of the Hasty Nature. Yeah, you will have to Soft Reset a few times, but that is beside the point. Hasty is very hasty in its decisions, and will, basically, hastily make a move & think it is the best move, meaning Hasty is effectively "choiced", & the first move Hasty uses when it is sent into the battle is the only move it may use until it leaves the field. If that move runs out of PP, you must select another move to spam, & so on. To reinforce this, the only item it may hold at any point in time is a Choice Scarf (Which is a good thing considering the restrictions, mind...Unless the spammed move runs out of PP...).
    Though, the bad news is because it is so hasty, before you can withdraw it/use an item/try to run, Hasty has already attacked...That means you cannot switch Hasty out/Use an item/Run away from the battle while Hasty is on the field. Just for a challenge, it must solo at least 2 Gym Leaders.

    In brief:
    -Hasty the Cyndaquil
    -Hasty Nature
    -Only Hold Item it can hold is Choice Scarf
    -While Hasty is on the field, the one & only thing you are allowed to do is select a move & spam it. If it runs out of PP, select another move (Or struggle to death with a Choice Scarf on)
    -Solo at least 2 Gym Leaders with it

    Have fun. Also ofc, I'm considering merging #scramble with #orangeislands. Surely that is a good idea, is it not, folks?

    UPDATE!

    Huzzah! I have FINALLY completed half of my Crystal challange! The E4 has fallen!

    So here's a quick update. I have fulfilled all of the requirements, unless otherwise noted:

    Show Hide
    Random (F) @ Hard Stone
    Level 43
    Rock Slide, Faint Attack, Flail, Low Kick

    Thank you, Random.


    Show Hide
    TopPercent (M) @ Escape Rope (Lol)
    Level 43
    Quick Attack, Icy Wind, Dig, Strength

    Thank you, King Serperior.


    Show Hide
    Mirror (M) @ Bitter Berry
    Level 48
    Peck, Future Sight, Night Shade, Fly

    Thank you, Jimera.


    Show Hide
    Inferno (M) @ Amulet Coin
    Level 51
    Flame Wheel, Quick Attack, Earthquake, Thunderpunch

    Thank you, Wobbanaut.


    Show Hide
    Puddles (F) @ Miracle Seed
    Level 41
    Headbutt, Stun Spore, Poisonpowder, Leech Seed

    Thank you, Chinchillers.


    Show Hide
    Jealousy (M) @ Pink Bow
    Level 42

    Vicegrip
    Guillotine
    Submission
    Seismic Toss

    Thank you, Oh My Biscuits.


    All in all, Inferno is far and away the MVP of the team. The type coverage is sorely needed on this team of lovable misfits. Victory Road was not kind to a majority of my team, so I will be looking to up those levels rather quickly as I start my journey into Kanto!

    Look forward to another update from me in about 150~ pages. :toast:

    heh Biggie, you need to tell me how that Will solo went, I'm really curious. Or, alternatively, you were actually able to find 5 trainer owned Xatu :P.

    Anyway, my own update should be coming not too long. Probably not going to do the crazy video update idea I had for the Let's Play competition so I'll have more time for this. Still, I do need to do that first, but I have lots of time this week so it shouldn't be an issue.

    @King_Serperior: He actually really held his own in the E4! Icy Wind was the ace in my sleeve that I needed against Lance. His Dragonites stood no chance D:<

    @Jimera: I grinded Xatu to 46 to start. Then I loaded up on Proteins to power up the Fly attack. I used Night Shade until the enemy Xatu used Confuse Ray and then I pulled my ultimate weapon... A BITTER BERRY!

    With the Bitter Berry curing me of confusion, I was able to wreck stuff alternating between Peck (Lol) and Fly. Used Night Shade alternating with Fly for Slowbro though. Stupid bulky bastard. Finally, I had a lot of Hyper Potions :)

    Edit:
    It actually wasn't as hard as you'd think, surprisingly. I got lucky with an early burn, so Miltank couldn't do much damage to me. And then for some reason, she didn't want to drink her milk that much. I got lucky :)

    My brother would like to start a Leafgreen Scramble!!

    This will be Lower Medium to upper Easy, so I had better not see a "Solo Blaine with an Oddish to evolve" or some crap like that.

    He would prefer to use a Starter, but he doesn't have to. He should have a full team by Blaine and at least 4 pokrmon by Erica.

    Ok, my friends, lets get this show on the road!!!




    P.S.

    I know that I have had 0 updates on my prose scramble, but I will be getting back to it later. I heve been pretty busy recentally and I am doing a Nuzelocke of HG, so it'll be some more time. Sorry D:

    Grabbing KS' brother a Geodude. Will edit in a bit.

    EDIT: fine, he can have a Voltorb. Editing now.

    Your Voltorb, kind of like Watson's, just seems to like to blow itself up without cause. So it must learn Selfdestruct ASAP and never forget it except to learn Explosion. However, when it blows itself up is pretty much completely random, although sometimes it is predictable....

    Every time it enters battle, roll a normal die (no cheating with a 20 sided die like one of my friends did). If the number is 6, then have it use Selfdestruct/Explosion immediately. If it is less then 6, then add 1 to the number you got each turn, and when you reach 6, you must use Selfdestruct/Explosion.

    If it goes into red HP, use Selfdestruct/Explosion.

    If it is affected by a critical hit, use Selfdestruct/Explosion.

    This may seem absurd, but keep in mind that some of these are easily predictable and you have no other restrictions.

    Have fun!

    I had this whole thing typed out, then lost it all. FUCK.

    Anyways, you get Frenzy the Mankey. Frenzy is about as angry as a Mankey can be. Therefore, whenever he is hit by an opponent, he must solo that pokemon as well as any pokemon who are on the same team as the offending pokemon. Frenzy is also mad at silly Psychic types who attempt to control his mind so he must solo 20 Psychic types in order to evolve. Finally, to prove his might as the greatest fighting-type in the land, he must solo Bruno in the E4.

    Enjoy.

    I've got the starter.

    E: Take a Bulbasaur as your starter. It cannot be used in gyms where it has a type advantage. Pick one of its STABs, it can never learn moves of that type.

    King Serperior, I give your brother Pikachu the Septaphiliac. It believes that 7 is its lucky number, so its favorite numbers have at least one of the following criteria:
    List of Criteria (open)
    • After as many even divisions by 2 as possible, has a remainder of 7 upon further division by 8 (e.g. 15);
    • Has a remainder of 7 upon division by 9 (e.g. 25, its Pokédex number);
    • Is a multiple of 7 (e.g. 35);
    • Contains a 7 (e.g. 75).

    It may only use moves with at least one of the following equal to one of its favorite numbers:
    • Base power;
    • Base pp (by this I mean no pp ups applied);
    • Base accuracy (treat --% as 100, which satisfies none of the criteria).
    It may not evolve unless its level is equal to one of its favorite numbers, and it may not accept an item in battle unless its quantity is one of its favorite numbers. Also, it must solo your seventh gym leader (which should be Blaine if you do the gyms in the intended order).

    Reserving for your KS's brother. Will edit in ASAP.

    Take Variable the Eevee. Variable must never battle 2 Pokemon of the same type in a row (Example: Nidoking and Rhydon). Whenever Variable can learn a new move by level-up, it must learn said move. It also is permanently under the effect of Torment.
    What it evolves into depends on its Nature; if +Def or Neutral, Vaporeon. If +SAtk or +Spd, Jolteon. If +Atk or +SDef, Flareon. Finally, Variable can only evolve on a level where it learns a new move.
    Enjoy!

    Just letting you know that you have until about 12:00 PM tomorrow to edit this or I'll have someone else take this. Thanks.


    As for everyone else: I'll let you know if your challenges are good for him when he returns from a Friend's house tomorrow :D

    Okay, to facilitate the mathematical complication involved in this challenge, I will provide these spoiler tags, one of which contains the levels between 1 and 100 at which Septaphiliac (which won't even fit due to the ten character limit) can evolve and the other of which contains the moves that it is allowed to use.
    Levels (open)
    7, 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 30, 31, 34, 35, 37, 39, 42, 43, 46, 47, 49, 52, 55, 56, 57, 60, 61, 62, 63, 67, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 84, 87, 88, 91, 92, 94, 95, 97, 98

    Moves allowed (open)
    Thundershock, Tail Whip, Quick Attack, Double Team, Slam, Thunderbolt, Agility, Thunder, Light Screen, Hidden Power, Iron Tail, Dig, Brick Break, Shock Wave, Façade, Secret Power, Attract, Strength, Flash, Rock Smash, Mega Kick, Double-edge

    Whether you view these or not is up to you; I'm just saying, I had quite a time with those criteria, especially the first one.

    Right, King, give your brother Tremor the Diglett.
    This Diglett has only one restriction, for the sake of simplicity.
    If he currently has an odd number of health remaining, he can only use Ground-type moves.
    If he currently has an even number of health remaining, he cannot use Ground-type moves.

    He must solo Lt. Surge to evolve. Good luck!
