    Booming Blastoise, take Ash the Pikachu. This Pikachu idolizes Ash's Pikachu from the anime (and manga, even though it can't read), and dedicates itself to do the same things. As such:

    Ash can only use moves Ash's Pikachu used in the anime or manga.
    Ash must take out Brock's Geodude by itself.
    Ash refuses to fight Misty.
    Ash must solo Lt. Surge.
    Ash must finish off (not necessarily solo) Lance's Dragonite. Yes, I know Ash never fought Lance in the anime, but he fought Drake instead, and Lance is the closest to him.
    Have fun! If this is too easy or too hard, or if there's something else you'd like changed, don't hesitate to say it.

    List of moves Ash will use (open)
    Thundershock
    Tail Whip (The reason why I'm allowing this is because while Ash's Pikachu never used this, it technically used Leer which is essentially the same thing)
    Quick Attack
    Thunderbolt
    Agility
    Thunder
    Swift (Used in the manga)
    Double-Edge

    Update 2 after Bugsy
    Team:
    Show Hide
    Webmaster
    [​IMG]
    level 19
    Poison Sting
    Leech Life
    Night Shade
    Shadow Sneak

    Since Webmaster has to solo all Bug types I had to solo the entire gym including Bugsy. In all not too bad as Night Shade combined with poison quickly wore down his Scyther who was the only real threat and Shadow Sneak is good priority especially for when I have to solo Morty's Gengar. Still love using Webmaster even though he is lacking a bit in power at the moment and cannot wait until he learns some more powerful moves to show off that above average attack stat.

    NUMB3RS
    [​IMG]
    level 18
    Bullet Seed
    Poison Powder
    Sleep Powder
    Synthesis

    NUMB3RS has a nearly perfect movepool but has an almost non existent offense even with STAB and Miracle Seed. However it does have a Calm nature so once it learns a special move it should do much better. Basic strategy is to poison enemies who can't deal much damage and put stronger ones to sleep before they can hit. Solid defenses, recovery and amazing speed make this thing very fun to use as well. Currently training it to 5 levels above Webmaster since is the only "restriction" if you can even call it that.



    Update 3 after Whitney
    Team:
    Show Hide
    Webmaster
    [​IMG]
    level 21
    Poison Sting
    Leech Life
    Night Shade
    Shadow Sneak

    Not much to say here. Webmaster didn't get much action besides soloing Goldenrod Underground. Night Shade is still amazing combined with both Poison and Priority moves.

    NUMB3RS
    [​IMG]
    level 19
    Bullet Seed
    Poison Powder
    Sleep Powder
    Synthesis

    Similar to Webmaster, NUMB3RS didn't see much use due to training my newest member who also has a restriction in which it can't be the lowest level team member. He did a great job of poisoning Whitney's Miltank and stalling it a bit. I will get him to 5 levels higher then my teamates as soon as possible.

    Precise
    [​IMG]
    level 17
    Scratch
    Tickle
    Sand-Attack
    Baton Pass

    Ironically I got Precise with a Careful nature and thus far I have loved him. Nice STAB attack and a move that basically combines Growl and Tail Whip are a deadly combination. I also got Run Away as an ability so that means it will turn into Technician upon evolution which fits in great with its restrictions. This thing will be a monster later on in the game.

    Dammit, and I was trying to give an LVP again.
    Okay, take Lucky the Crawdaunt.

    Just a few restrictions:
    - Lucky must learn Guillotine before it reaches Victory Road and use it to kill at least 5 Pokemon during Victory Road (bye Ethers XD).
    - Lucky must hit at least 30 times with a move below 85% accuracy before it can evolve.
    - Yeah, I chose Lucky for Dive and Waterfall, there you go.

    GL; HF!

    Someone didn't read their challange carefully enough...
    Double Hit has a BP of 35. Precise can only use moves of BP ranging from 40-90. This means, you can't learn Double Hit, and as a result, can't evolve. Thought you realized, but apparently not. Glad I could clear that up before you did something bad!

    Furret, take Struggle the ____. I don't care what Pokemon it is. It cannot evolve until it soloes a Gym Leader/Rival/E4 member with only Struggle (I.e. start the battle with 0 PP). You may use up to 2 healing items during this battle.

    Yes, creativity is lacking. So what? I don't need creativity to make someone's challenge difficult. :P

    Well considering Double Hit always hits twice it would have 70 BP which is why I thought that. You could have just added that as a side note it couldn't evolve but thankfully you cleared that up lol.

    Update 4 after Morty
    Team:
    Show Hide
    Webmaster
    [​IMG]
    level 27
    Sucker Punch
    Leech Life
    Night Shade
    Shadow Sneak

    I thought the solo would be simple at first but with Webmasters terrible special defense and Gengar's monstrous special attack he had trouble dealing enough damage beat it. However, at level 26 he learned Sucker Punch which was an easy 2hko even with Gengar having a Sitrus Berry. He also grew a level in the battle so he evolved right afterwards and it is also why NUMB3RS is only 4 levels higher at the moment along with Precise being one level lower.

    NUMB3RS
    [​IMG]
    level 31
    Mega Drain
    Poison Powder
    Sleep Powder
    Leech Seed

    NUMB3RS is really a gift and a curse. His simple restriction of being 5 levels higher then my other pokes is agitating considering his exp. gain rate is medium slow while both Precise and Webmasters are fast. This means that ever time they go up even a level or two it causes me to have to grind a little to get him back to 5 levels higher. However with his combination of Poison Powder and Leech Seed he easily wears down opponents. Plus he finally learned Mega Drain which deals some good damage.

    Precise
    [​IMG]
    level 26
    Scratch
    Tickle
    Shadow Claw
    Swift

    Precise is a great powerhouse. Though I'm a bit sad since I found out I can't evolve him he still can hit hard thanks to Tickle and decent attack. Shadow Claw tore through Morty's Gym though its high crit. hit rate may be a problem later on. He has to solo Chuck next which will definitely be a nightmare. Oh well.

    My original post said no Struggling challenges (I have to admit,though, it's pretty far back.) So, challenge not accepted.

    Take Moneyz the Zigzagoon. Moneyz is in the mindset that you are extremely poor and won't take no for an answer!! As such, sell all items that Moneyz gets via pickup!!. Seeing as Pickup is useless while holding an item, moneyz cannot hold any item!!

    Keep track of the cash that you get from selling Moneyz items because you can only use that go pay for 2 TMs that Moneyz cam learn from the game corner.

    After teaching those two TMs, Moneyz can evolve. After evolution, in any major battle, even the ones that you have to solo with another mon, you must have Moneyz the Linoone appear while holding the Amulet Coin. He doesn't have to battle, but he has to appear.

    This is the only time that moneyz can hold an item. GOOD LUCK!!!

    Neeklause, you wanted something that can learn Dive and Waterfall, right?

    Catch yourself a Lotad and name him Flip.
    Each time you gain a gym badge, flip a coin.

    If heads, Flip decides to focus on his Water-typing.
    He cannot use Grass-type moves in battle until you receive the next gym badge.
    In addition, he tries to mimic the relentless force of Water itself.
    He cannot switch out of battle.

    If tails, Flip decides to focus on his Grass-typing.
    He cannot use Water-type moves in battle until you receive the next gym badge.
    In addition, he tries to mimic the gentleness of Nature itself.
    He cannot directly attack on the first turn he is sent out.

    Remember to keep flipping that coin!

    He must solo one trainer in every gym after you catch him.
    He must solo two Pokemon in the Elite Four.

    Fine. Then take Resolute the ____. It can be any pokemon. It is focused on mastering one technique and only one technique. Teach Resolute a TM. S/he can only use that one TM move in battle. It's other slots may not be used in battle, but may be used to hold HM moves and such.

    Resolute must solo 2 gym leaders.

    Hey, it seems you forget to put in the Hard cannot switch out of battle. So if hard is currently battling, you cannot switch to another Pokemon.

    Booming Blastoise, here is one: BlindRat, the Zubat. The only damaging move it or it's evolutions can have is leech life, and you must always beat at least 1 pokemon with him 1 on 1, on every Pokemon Trainer/Gym Leader/Rival encounter. This rule does not apply at the E4

    Hey guys Part #3 of my Scramble is up.
    The audio is REALLY REALLY OFF for the first 3-5 minutes. I made a crucial error while recording but I saved the game so I couldn't go back and redo it. Nothing to eventful happens in the first 5 minutes anyway.

    Part #3
    Part #2
    Part #1

    Is anybody watching these?

    Booming Blastoise, in keeping with the anime theme, take a Butterfree named "BeFree". You can only teach it the following four moves, which will be its moveset for the entire time you have it*:

    Tackle
    Harden
    Whirlwind
    Stun Spore

    It must solo Misty's Starmie with as much of this moveset as it has at the time; any other moves cannot be used.

    *I say "as long as you have it" because, yes, you will complete the similarity between the game and the anime by releasing BeFree just before Saffron Gym. In honor of BeFree, you'll keep the spot it used to occupy open, never replacing it on your team.

    If you find you can't bear to send BeFree away, then you must immediately change its nickname to "Trapped" and you can no longer use the same move twice in a row. In addition, it must remain in your party at all times and cannot appear in battle until all of your other Pokemon have appeared at least once. At this point it may learn Psybeam, but can only use it once per battle (Psychic is banned at all points).

    Good luck, and choose wisely.
