    @Naix, I'll take a challange spot for your Colosseum.

    Take Power the Croconaw. Power truly believes that it is the most Pokémon in the world, and as such, may not evolve.

    That is, until he discovers the power behind learning Hydro Pump. That's right, Croconaw may finally evolve when it learns Hydro Pump at level 55. Good luck.

    Oh, and Croconaw/Feraligatr may NOT use moves other than STAB or Normal type because, you know, whatever. You need some sort of challange while using Croconaw.

    For reference, I researched what moves Croconaw can use given your restrictions. I also deleted what moves I'm sure I couldn't get, and the results are as follows:

    Shadow Rush (deleted after purification)
    Bite
    Focus Punch (difficult to use, requires victory over Pyrite Colosseum, which has Pokemon whose levels are above 50)
    Toxic
    Hail (almost useless)
    Hidden Power (provided it isn't Water-type)
    Ice Beam (requires 4000 Poke Coupons, which means almost definite drudgery)
    Blizzard
    Iron Tail (Requires 4 victories in the Under Colosseum, which are slightly higher leveled than Pyrite.

    So because of its incredibly narrow movepool (as well as having to put up with a Croconaw for 25 levels without evolving it), I'm going to have to reject Power. You will, however, have a reserved spot if you wish to try again.

    Alright, I'll try one more time.

    Take Stall the Bayleef. Stall may only learn one and have in its moveset attacking move when possible. In order to evolve, Stall must solo (well, duo, but the partner Pokémon may only support with items/Helping Hand or something) Miror B. at some point during the game, even if unpurified.

    Hope that's a bit better! :)

    here you go...
    You may take Limelight the Tropius.
    Show Hide

    Limelight is here to prove that Tropius are awesome and that everybody should know it. He is sick of people thinking that he has no battling skill and that he is compared to the frail cotton balls that share his typing. Limelight will show everyone that he is the best and that he knows his stuff. To prove he knows his strategy, he must always (asap) have at least two attacking moves, one of each of his STABs, and a non-damaging move. He must also always have a hold item, preferably those that make him look cool, and so once you obtain the focus band, he must wear it.
    Limelight must also prove his battling skills against those that most threaten him and his superiority, so he and his partner must duo Glacia of the Elite four. This may be along with luvdisc if that is Limelight’s partner. He must also prove his dominance in the sky by soloing Winnona’s Skarmory and Altaria. Because of his jealousy, he will jump out of his pokeball and into battle when either enters battle whether his couple is fighting or not.
    He must also enter shoal cave and solo it to obtain his super cool focus band.

    enjoy :)

    Sweet! I actually love Tropius! Challenge accepted!

    EDIT: And with that, I will be starting my Sapphire Scramble-Wedlocke! I will update every gym or so, but it won't say much except for each pkemon, their stats/moves/etc and MVP thru LVP. Here are my pokemon and partner list:

    Pokemon:



    List of partners:
    RNG and LowIQ/HeartThrob
    Voodoom and Limelight
    Scrambled and Lovey

    While it breaks my "no soloing trainers" rule, I'll accept Stall regardless, as Stall resists the STAB of Miror B.'s Ludicolo. Thanks for changing it! As such, I am ready to begin!

    @Espeon65
    Voodoom's partner must be a Normal- or Flying-type, and Scrambled is neither. Limelight, on the other hand...

    In Pokémon Colosseum, once you get one of the Johto Starters, you may not obtain the other two until post-game.

    Bayleef was the only Johto starter I accepted. In fact, it was given because I rejected Power the Croconaw.

    Since when isn't Illumise Bug/Flying? Ugh...well, I guess Limelight then. But that means he has to go forever without a partner.

    Chapter 4 of my Pokemon Blue Scramble is up! This time, I go from Viridian Forest, to beating Brock. This chapter has been added to the main post for this scramble here, but I've posted it here too for anyone who is interested.

    Show Hide
    With a fully healed party of Pokemon, Ttar headed to the northern exit of Viridian City. He passed by an old man, who asked him if he knew how to catch Pokemon. Ttar held up his three PokeBalls, nodded, and walked on.

    Route 2 was another short route. However, unlike Route 1, Route 2 was split in half by a large forest. As Ttar walked through the gatehouse leading into the forest, a woman warned him not to get lost in Viridian Forest. As she put it, the forest is a 'natural maze.' Ttar smiled and nodded, and walked through the door into the forest.

    The first thing that Ttar noticed was that the road immediately forked three ways: straight, left, and right. Ttar had no idea which path was the correct one, so he went with his gut: take the left path.

    The left path went a short way, and then curved to the right. A short way further, there was another fork. One path curved to the left, and the other turned dead right. Ttar decided to take the left path again, but soon found out that this was not the right way. The road ended in a few tree stumps and thick grass. Ttar found a PokeBall on the ground, however, so it wasn't a waste. He turned around and went back the way he came, and this time, he turned left onto the other path.

    This path curved to the right shortly. Ttar followed the path, and before long, he realized that his gut had been wrong. He found himself face to face with the gatehouse he had entered the forest from. Shaking his head, Ttar went down the only remaining route: to the right of the gatehouse.

    This path was clearly the correct one. There were several signs along the path, and several trainers as well. Some of them even challenged Ttar, but their Weedle and Caterpie were no match for Ttar's Pokemon. They gave some nice experience, though. Now that Ttar had found the right path, there weren't many forks, and the ones there were led to the same place. The rest of the forest was easy to navigate, and before too long, Ttar found himself at the exit gatehouse. The rest of Route 2 was very short, and Ttar found himself in Pewter City, the site of the first Pokemon Gym in the region.

    Ttar healed his Pokemon at the Pokemon Center. He noticed the Gym was right around the corner, so he headed there immediately. Having done his research, he knew that the Pewter Gym specialized in Rock-type Pokemon. This meant that Arceustar the Squirtle would have an easy time with it's Water-type attacks.

    The Gym had a very simple layout. One trainer guarded Brock, the Gym Leader. Strangely, the trainer used Diglett and Sandshrew, two Ground-type Pokemon. So much for Rock-types, huh? They still fell easily to Arceustar's Bubble, and Ttar went on and approached the Gym Leader.

    Brock awoke from his meditative state. He eyed Ttar, and then began speaking:

    "I'm Brock, the Pewter Gym Leader!" he said. "I believe in rock hard defenses and determination! That's why I train Rock-type Pokemon! Do you still want to challenge me?"

    "Of course I do!" Ttar exclaimed.

    "Fine then!" Brock shouted. "Show me your best. Go, Geodude!"

    Out of a PokeBall came a Pokemon that appeared to be just a rock with a face and arms. It floated in the air, clearly anxious to fight.

    "Come on out, Arceustar!" Ttar cried. He tossed his PokeBall in the air, and the small Pokemon appeared before him.

    "I'll let you have the first move, challenger!" Brock said.

    "An honorable, yet very poor decision!" Ttar replied. "Arceustar, Bubble!"

    Arceustar shot a flurry of bubbles from it's mouth. They all struck the Rock and Ground-type Pokemon, very clearly nailing a weak point. However, Geodude was still standing, much to Ttar's surprise.

    "Geodude, Tackle!" Brock called out. The Rock Pokemon charged Arceustar, knocking it over, but Arceustar didn't seem to be hurt.

    "Use Bubble again!" Ttar commanded. Another flurry of bubbles shot from the turtle Pokemon's mouth, and after they connected with the Geodude, it fell to the ground, unable to take any more.

    "Geodude, return!" Brock cried out. "Not bad, but I still have my faithful partner Pokemon left. Go, Onix!"

    Out of the PokeBall came a gigantic Pokemon that Ttar hadn't been expecting. It appeared to be a huge snake made entirely of rocks. It was certainly menacing, but Ttar thought to himself, 'This probably won't be too hard. A few Bubbles and it should go down.'

    "Onix, brace yourself!" Brock shouted. "Use Bide!"

    Onix coiled itself up, forming a giant spiral of rocks. It was preparing to tank attacks. However, Ttar knew this was in vain.

    "You know what to do, Arceustar!" Ttar yelled. Arceustar turned around and nodded at him, and then unleashed a stream of bubbles at the Onix. Like with the Geodude before it, Onix seemed really hurt by it.

    As Onix was using Bide, it was unable to attack. Ttar took advantage of this, and simply commanded Arceustar to use Bubble again. The bubbles hit their target, and just like that, the gigantic Pokemon collapsed to the ground, defeated.

    "No, my Pokemon!" Brock screamed. He called his Onix back into it's PokeBall, then turned to address Ttar, who was celebrating his victory with Arceustar.

    "I took you for granted," Brock said. "As proof of your victory, here's the BoulderBadge."

    He handed Ttar a small metal badge, which appeared to be an octagon, segmented into nine parts. This was Ttar's first badge; his first step towards the Pokemon League!

    "Thank you so much!" Ttar said joyously.

    "That Badge also enables the use of the hidden technique Flash," Brock said. "And here, a little bonus from me." He held out a small disc to Ttar, who took it from him.

    "That's TM34, Bide," Brock said. "It's one of my favorite moves. Use it to teach the move to a Pokemon. It can only be used one, though, so choose wisely!"

    "Thanks a lot," Ttar said. He didn't plan to use the TM, but he wasn't going to tell Brock that.

    "You should head to Cerulean City in the east," Brock said. "That's where the next Gym is. My good friend Misty runs it. You may have beaten me, but I bet you won't beat her!"

    "I'll look into that," Ttar said. "See you later!"

    With that, Ttar left the Gym and returned to the Pokemon Center. He got his Pokemon healed, and decided to rest there for a while. He had a long day, and both he and his Pokemon had earned their rest.

    @Incoleo, take a Geodude and name it AUTOBOT. What do Autobots do? THEY ROLLLOOOOOUT! Have it learn Defense Curl and Rollout ASAP (Rollout comes late, but that's ok). Once Rollout is obtained, the only move it can use before it uses Rollout is Defense Curl (you do not HAVE to use Defense Curl before Rollout, but it is the only move you can use before Rollout is used). After it finishes Rolling out, it can do whatever it wishes.

    Being an Autobot, AUTOBOT must fight the horrible DECEPTICONS at their evil hideout... Jasmine's gym in Olivine! Solo Jasmine and all her gym trainers with AUTOBOT.

    So there you go enjoy your mostly unrestricted Geodude... until it gets Rollout, at which time I expect to see it lose usefulness very swiftly :P.

    I can consider my FR scramble ended, here are the videos of the rematch against E4.
    They were very though battles, much more difficult then the first ones (video link on trainer's name):
    • Lorelei - Cloyster isn't set up bait anymore, but he gets Rain Dance so I gain perfect accuracy Thunder. Toxic on Dewgong and start setting up hoping to avoid crits/freeze. Lucky crit against Lapras but probably unneeded
    • Bruno - The easiest, also because I got an Overheat crit against Machamp. Protip: Hitmonchan's Rock Slide has perfect accuracy
    • Agatha - I forgot the moveset change and kept Persim Berry instead of Chesto Berry but 2 Hypnosis miss bypassed the problem. I got some luck at the end which saved me some precious Revive
    • Lance - Holy shit the mp4 file got corrupted or whatever for TWO TIMES! And this time there are FOUR flying pokémon, and the first is Dragon Dance/Earthquake/Thunder Wave Gyarados. A crit and Snake is dead. That was a real pain
    • Blue - omg another video broken...the last time was definitely more lucky and short. King's Rock I love you.

    Here's my first update for my Scramble-Wedlocke:

    So for this gym, RNG pulled off an impressive solo! After two soft resets due to annoying crits, she pulled through. I used 4 x defends and 1 x special and her ember slowly but surely took down Roxanne's team! I only used two super potions either, so I was proud (:.

    The Team So Far (open)

    RNG the Adamant Torchic
    Lv. 18
    Ember
    Scratch
    Focus Energy
    Growl


    MVP of this chapter with his impressive Roxanne solo, he is promising. His adamant nature is so annoying though when his 1 type for all his moves is gonna be fire.

    LowIQ the Docile Slakoth
    Lv. 15
    Scratch
    Yawn
    Encore
    Slack Off


    LVP by default this chapter, with her only useful move being Scratch. I was kinda excited to teach her Rock Tomb, but she can't learn it ): I'm debating teaching her Cut but once she evolves and all her moves must be special, it won't be deletable yet. Ugghhhhh LowIQ, why ya gotta be so dumb?? Lol XD

    Manitary, gratz on your success. I liked the way how you used thunder due to Lorelei and Blue using rain dance, but it surprised me how little hitmon... did to your charizard with rock slide (when doing so much to gastly at the same time). Oh and your Lance solo was quite impressive. Glad to see you pulled it off, especially when it is more difficult due to gyarados boosting and dragon being special.

    Espeon65, nice going. Only being allowed to use one attacking type will suck. (hehe) It would be nice for future updates to link to your challenges, so we can look what requirements still have to be fulfilled, instead of looking back at previous pages to find out what we gave you.

    TyranitarPhnatom, nice going. Not too much to add.

    I think the only explanation is that Hitmonchan has 105 base attack + burn and a x4 modifier against 117 defense, hitmonlee has 120 base attack against 62 defense.
    Lance is real pain (and I needed to repeat 3 times the win!) and despite the number of reset I'm lucky that EQ don't OHKO when both pokémon have the same stat boost, otherwise it would be impossible (which means I need level up Snake a bit)

    White 2 Challenge Mode Scramble Update #10

    We are on the Road through the Victory Ro-oad...With lots of detours & getting HM Slaves...

    Original Post
    Update #1
    Update #2
    Update #3
    Update #4
    Update #5
    Update #6
    Update #7
    Update #8
    Update #9

    In case you could not decipher my terrible singing, this update mainly covers Victory Road, which means minimal writing. So yeah. Without a Strength user, or a Waterfall user, I needed to do two things. 1. Repeatedly go in & out of the Pokémon Centre just to get Crustle to move some boulder, & 2. Catch a bloody Basculin, which had a tendency to break free, just to be able to use Waterfall. Of course, there was a fair share of nasty encounters, like the Double Veteran Battle only reachable via Waterfall. I had to keep using global targeting moves to get out of that one...I also kept mis-clicking against the Veteran with the three Dragons, constantly using Leaf Blade against of X-Scissor...There were a few other annoying encounters, but eventually, I got to the top of the road, where Hugh was waiting. For one more battle.

    Rover opened the battle against Hugh's Unfezant. All I did was Tackle-spam, as Unfezant did the predictable Swagger > U-Turn into Simipour, before KOing Rover with Focus Blast. I then sent in Grub & took out Simipour with Leaf Blade. Whee! I then sent in Furious against Hugh's Emboar, & bludgeoned Emboar to death with Surf & Psychic, as well as using his Max Potion. Next was Reckless vs. Bouffalant. Reckless used Superpower. Bouffalant survived. Bouffalant then KOed Reckless with Head Charge, before Bouffalant took itself out with Recoil Damage. Finally, Shy came in for Unfezant, & Shy took out the Unfezant & Hugh's hopes of winning. Whee!

    After that, I got the Thunderbolt TM, which I waste no time in teaching to Shy, before arriving at the Pokémon League, ready to take on the Elite 4! Next Update...

    Relaunched, take a Deerling and name it GETITOFFME. Deerling is a nice little deer and OH GOD WHAT IS THIS STUFF GROWING ON MY BACK DO I HAVE CANCER OH GOD THIS CAN'T BE RIGHT DEERS DON'T GROW PLANTS I'M A MUTANT AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GETITOFFME does not think it is a grass type. It thinks that it's plant like characteristics are actually horrible cancerous mutations. As such, GETITOFFME cannot use any grass type attacks and is terrified of grassy types in general. If it encounters a grass type, it must switch or or run away as quickly as possible. It seeks out treatment for its tumors, and as must solo Brycen in an attempt to freeze away its growths like warts. When this does not work, it sets its sights on Caitlin for psychic therapy (solo her as well). Caitlin is finally able to cure GETITOFFME of its irrational fears through psychotherapy, and after that GETITOFFME has its restrictions lifted.

    Good luck and have fun!
