    Hi, I'm new to these forums and new to Scrambling.

    I'm doing a Scramble of Sapphire.

    The team must have a starter and must all be obtainable pre-Winona. No impossible feats and as usual, not derps that can't evolve.

    Let's hope for something cool.

    A little problem, in gen 3 Shroomish doesn't learn Spore until lv54 and the restriction involving spore is lv45-50.

    So..what do I do? Must put the opponent to sleep when hit SE?

    Ok maserato, take EVOLVE!!! the zubat.

    The zubat that you caught happened to be very big on science. He likes it A LOT and is a massive nerd. Obviously being a massive nerd means that he ended up bullied when he went to school, so he is scared of all pokemon who go to his school. His school had a massive variety of pokemon - all cave-dwelling pokemon ever! They are listed in the habitat list, you can look on bulbapedia or in your pokedex itself, although it could end up confusing it is simple enough. If it ends up against any of the pokemon listed as living in caves then it must faint, a.k.a let the pokemon kill you.

    Your zubat actually got hired by professor oak! You have to head back to pallet town when you first get him so that he can inform professor Oak that you are taking him. Professor Oak says it's OK, as long as you don't let zubat evolve.
    [insert troll face]

    Zubat likes science, so he wants to solo 10 electric types. Otherwise he can solo Lt. Surge.

    Enjoy, let me know if you want it tweaked or something.

    Soulsilver Scramble (1), this is my first update, tips are appreciated, but please don't get mad at me.

    Show Hide

    Today, while Quaza was walking through the forest near his house, he heard a cry. It was coming from behind a big stump. He immediately looked what it was. Behind the stump, he found a Cyndaquil. It looked like the Cyndaquil was suffering. Quaza lifted it and brought it to New Bark Town’s hospital. After some time, he got some color again. I stayed at his side for another few hours, but I knew my parents were questioning where I was staying, so I went home in the late evening.
    I let my parents know about the Cyndaquil I found. After my explanation, they start talking about the recent topic of Pokemon Journeys. They even asked if I wanted to go on one. I never even thought about it, I thought it was a bit like you walk behind the crowd. But I saw the cuteness of the Pokemon I found and I would love to go on a journey with it, so I said yes.
    The next day, Cyndaquil was released from the hospital. I could start my journey immediately, I was already friends with Cyndaquil and I packed my bag already. Professor Elm wanted to wish me good luck, but he never liked me, he just wanted another Pokedex slave.
    On the first routes, I learned to know Cyndaquil better. I learned about his violent history and I saw all scars on his body. For no reason I decided to call him Flower.
    I went to Cherrygrove town first, some stupid man wanted me to run around the complete town. No, new shoes don’t mean that you can run like, what was it, 7 kilometers. After that, I was really exhausted, so I wanted to leave the crazy town. But no, the crazy man came again talking to me. I don’t know what, I didn’t feel like listening.
    After that, when I saw the enormous route with a mountain range in the deepness, I decided I could use some Pokeballs. But that Pokecenter didn’t have them. Oh well, I just decided to never come back in the strange city.
    On the next route, I saw Flower trying to blow out some smoke. Which is a natural thing for fire-types. But this didn’t work, I suspected nothing yet, but I saw he was not feeling well. Flower lost all his energy, so I gave him some leaves I found on the floor. Luckily, Flower felt a bit better again, but I was scared something like this would happen again.
    Now knowing that there was still something going on with my sweet flower, I battled Youngster Joey. I was insecure about it, I hoped Flower could win it with his handicap. It was easier than suspected. He also said something about the top percentage of Rattata, but my restricted Flower easily beat him.
    I avoided all other trainers; I wanted to bring Flower to a Pokemon Center. He needed to feel better again. He battled some other wild Pokemon, but not many, however he cleared a bit up from battling, so I think he might’ve grew a few levels.
    Late that night, I finally came at Violet City. I was kind of impressed of this city, as I never came in a city this big. It is the second biggest city of Johto. I immediately went to the Pokemon Center, trying to revive flower. I was overanxious; nothing bad was going on with Flower. After that I went looking for a Pokemart, if they had some Pokeballs at this one. Luckily, this was a decent city that had a good Pokemart and no crazy running old people.
    The next day, I went back to the previous route; I couldn’t look for Pokemon the last time. After some running around, I found a really tired cute bug lying in a piece of grass. I wanted to try to help it. That is why I caught it. I called it Fatigue, as it was so tired. I was really excited about having a new Pokemon. I wanted to test it out immediately. However, this wasn’t anything near easy to use. I found out it wasn’t just tired, but lazy. It didn’t want to do most things. Under these things was that it didn’t want to battle wild Pokemon. Luckily I avoided some trainers, so I trained Fatigue, which is a Ledyba by the way, there. Tackle was soon replaced by Comet Punch and it was able to 2HKO even defensive Caterpie. A huge achievement.
    When I went to the gym, I saw there WAS a stupid old guy here too. He said I needed to go to the Sprout Tower first, he said I needed some training. So I became mad at him that he said that I was weak. I scared him away and I challenged Gym Leader Falkner after that.

    I realized that Flower was actually quite strong, it already evolved some time ago and its Quick Attack, although it has weak Base Power, became pretty strong already. It 2HKO’d the Pidgey and it spammed its other move Leer against Pidgeotto, to prevent healing it off. Eventually, it 2HKO’d Pidgeotto too. I said to Falkner, no Flying types aren’t stunned by a simple bolt; they are just defeated by a moment of hotness. Then I left; Falkner was useless from now on. All I heard was that he shouted after me that he would ask stronger Pokemon from his father. I said that he was pathetic.

    Team:
    Quilava
    Level: 15
    @Rash
    -Quick Attack
    -Leer
    -SmokeScreen
    -Ember

    This Pokemon has been great during the complete scramble till now, its quick evolution is great and its attacks are usable at this spot of the game. It has helps me at tight spots. Our friendship is already a great one. Leer helps with preparation and Quick Attack is a decent attacking option. Too bad my character doesn’t know yet how to use the others.

    Ledyba
    Level: 10
    @Calm
    -Tackle
    -Supersonic
    -Comet Punch
    -X

    This thing has an awesome walking sprite!!! But overall, it has been quite weak, although I like him. It is annoying he can’t fight wild Pokemon and its attacks are quite weak and most of the time his Defense doesn’t cut it and it is KO’d by random Pokemon. Soloing a Gym with this will be hard. I hope I get it too the point of Double-Edge. Anyway, I do love the difficulty of this as I love difficulty.

    @CBT

    Take a Wooper and name it Sire. Like a true sire, this Wooper always grants its foes the privilege of moving first. If you happen to outspeed the opponent, then Sire must spend every other turn apologizing for his rudeness (use a non attacking move of any type). You can equip a speed lowering item like a macho brace, Iron ball or Lagging tail to help avoid this.

    Good luck, and I hope you enjoy your first scramble! Assuming you can decipher what the heck Snaquaza meant when he gave you that Rhyhorn... Because I sure as hell can't.

    @Eggman
    Take a Tropius and name it BANANAMETEOR. It has one pure goal... to learn the magnificent mythical move of the Tropius, spoken of in hushed but excited tones in the undergrowth of Route 119, rummored to only be granted to the most powerful and skilled Tropius. Banana Meteor. In order to complete its quest, it must first hone its skills. To remain pure in its cause, it can only learn Normal, Flying and Grass type moves. To increase its power of mind it must match its focus against the physic masters, Tate and Lisa (just make sure it is in the battle for the whole battle against them). Finally, it must find and confront the 3 ancient sages, Regirock, Regice and Registeel (Solo all 3. Good luck on Regice!) Only then, will it discover the true power of Banana Meteor.

    And of course be sorely disappointed because Banana Meteor is a move that never existed ever. Have fun!

    Reserving a Spinda.

    EDIT: Take Rockblockd the Spinda.

    This Spinda can overcome anything, but Rock-types. It just can't get past Rock-types. But nothing stops it from trying. Spinda hears that Tate and Liza have a Solrock and a Lunatone, so it must solo those two mons.

    After breaking the ultra-hard rocks of Tate and Liza, it realizes that it can break through rocks. Teach it Rock Smash, and have no other Fighting-type moves.

    It hears of the legendary rock, Regirock. It is determined to smash it, so solo Regirock using only Rock Smash.

    Matezoide I give unto you LudiYOLO the lotad
    LudiYOLO blazes it on 420 and engages in raucous shenanigans so he may never be at full hp for the start of a gym fight. He likes to show off to his friends with his muscles so he must solo Brawly to become lombre. Finally he must solo winonas skarmory to become a ludicolo.
    He is deathly afraid of water and may not learn water type moves because they might put out hit bong

    Matezoide, start with Flash the Torchic. It wants to be fast, so reset until you get a speed boosting nature (If you don't give it a speed boosting nature, it can never evolve and never use Fire moves).

    It may freely evolve into Combusken. As Torchic or Combusken, if it is outsped on the first turn, it must use a stat-lowering move to weaken its opponent to compensate for being slower.

    It cannot evolve into Blaziken unless it knows Quick Attack. If it evolves into Blaziken, the previous stat-lowering requirement is switched to it must use Quick Attack every first turn.

    Have it solo Wattson, since his Pokemon are fast, Electric types.

    Good Luck!

    Reserving a Skarmory for Matezoide
    Name it confidence
    This Skarmory is overconfident, so you want to show it that it isn't that great.
    1. It can only fight against Pokemon with only Special Typings
    2. If it is hit for less than 25% of its health than...
    #It feels great and must lead your party till the next gym.
    #Must solo the last Pokemon of every trainer till the said gym.
    3. Must solo at least one special gym.

    If it is forced to go against a physical Pokemon than it gets overconfident.
    1. Can't be healed, except for Pokemon Center, but only if it has fainted.
    2. Must lead your party
    3. Must solo all Physical typings
    4. If it faints, he thinks his team laughs at him, so the first Pokemon after him in the party, must solo the first one of the E4, to let them suffer. The second time it happens, you take the first non-duplicate from your party and it needs to solo the second member of the E4. You can skip an E4 member if it collides with a Challenge. ETC.

    God Luck

    @ Matezoide: You get Flapper the Zubat.

    Flapper must hold a Cheri Berry to fight. If it loses it mid-battle, it must be switched out & may not return. For it to evolve, it must fulfil the following conditions:

    • Solo all of Wattson's Gym Trainers without leaving the Gym once
    • Solo twenty trained Grass Type Pokémon
    Fulfilling one of the two conditions allows you to evolve to Golbat. Fulfilling both allows you to evolve into Crobat. Flapper may never leave the party at any time. You may never soft reset if you lose a berry mid-battle.

    Have fun. 8)

    I should get back to issuing challanges myself; only stopped because I didn't have any ideas that I really felt met my standards.

    Eggman, take a Mudkip for your starter, and name it Eggbert. This Mudkip is in fact a version of you from an alternate universe where you're a pokemon; in fact, everyone's a pokemon in that universe.

    In accordance with the theory of quantum superposition, Eggbert is in both your game universe and in the PMD universe until he can be conclusively proven to be in a single one and not in both. As such, he must spend half of his time in the other universe; you must place Eggbert in the box during every even numbered game hour. During this time, since you are the version of Eggbert who exists only in this world, you may do whatever you please so long as Eggbert the pokemon is in the box.

    In an attempt to prove to Eggbert that this world is completely different from the one he's familiar with, every dungeon area you visit (including caves, forests, etc. but NOT INCLUDING normal routes or Aqua's base) must be soloed by Eggbert.

    Moreover, you must solo each of these areas twice to prove to him that dungeons are not random in this universe. You may do the solos in separate 1 hour blocks as mandated by an earlier restriction, so long as they are within a reasonable game time of each other (so no supergrinding in between).

    Since Eggbert could not evolve in the PMD world until defeating the final boss, neither can he evolve in this game until he soloes Kyogre, the final boss. After that, he may evolve at any time.

    Matezoide, Take CaptMURICA the Gulpin.

    Gulpin is a very typical America:

    1) He is morbidly obese and must eat every non-Cheri berry found as soon as you get them
    2) He loooooves to go to pop concerts, and always wants and encore. As soon as you can learn Encore (lv. up), you must learn it, and use it at the start of every battle.
    3) He loves shopping, and you must go to the pokemon every time you enter town, and spent until you have less than $1000. This applies to re-entering town as well.
    4) He loves football, and thinks his team is the best! In order to evolve, he has to solo all 11 of the rival's teams players. These can be any gym trainers, or bosses.

    FINALLY!

    Part 12 of my Emerald Scramble is up on Youtube!

    Link here.

    Took me a few days to both find the time to upload it and remember to upload it, but I've finally got the job done. This is the recording of the hangout from a few days ago. Yes, I know the recording is almost 2 hours long. The idea was that I was going to do this without any editing, so that's what I've done. For those of you who want to know what happened but don't want to take the time to watch well, here's a (very) quick recap.

    Most of the video was spent just battling random trainers on various routes around Mossdeep City. I did however beat up Maxie with Steven's help in what was actually a very close and difficult battle. Also, Pinball the Larion finally evolved to Pinball the Aggron! I didn't get much further than that because, well, there are a lot of water routes and a lot of trainers around.

    And if you want more detail, you'll have to watch the video. Thanks for your patience everyone!

    CBTerrakion, I know the last has been a bit confusing so I give an other one.

    Take a Stantler named Confusion
    Stantlers are known for their confusing powers, so this one thinks he is a Psychic type.
    For this reason, do this.
    1. Know 2 Psychic type Moves ASAP, one status and one damaging
    2. Can't fight Pokemon that have a higher Base Sp. Attacking stat than himself.
    3. Must Solo all Pokemon of Sabrina, after this rule two is deleted, but it is replaced by this rule: Can only know Sp. Attacking and Status moves.

    K, chapter one, here it is!

    Chapter One: Yo Professor (open)


    Ellis was woken up by his mother; he rightfully screamed at her! (Ellis didn't like getting out of his bed, he didn't really like his mother either). When Ellis finally pulled himself out of bed, he slumped downstairs absent-mindedly, ate breakfast, grabbed his gun and sheathed it. Armed, he went out of his house, to the house of his two friends, Celever and Dragonite. Once he arrived at Celever's house, he said: 'Yo dawg, ya know we are gettin our Mon today, eh?' Celever didn't quite understand what Ellis was saying, and with a Australian accent Celever explained: 'I don't understend ye mate, tell me agaein, please.' Ellis tried to tell Celever again, but due to her sheer stupidity, Celever couldn't get it. Ellis just said: 'Come on, ya stupid whore! Let's go get Dragonite, he's da new bro in town, dawg.' Arriving in Dragonite's room (Ellis smashed the door with his frying pan) Ellis said: 'Yo dawg, ma mom said I needed to go get ya to go get dem Pokémon, yo comming? Oh, and why did yo mom name yo after a Pokémon?!' Dragonite, still half-awake, said: 'God! What is it with you waking me up man?' He said in a deep, Dutch or German accent. Celever then tried to explain what Ellis just said, with Ellis shouting loud whenever Celever did something wrong. Finally, after Ellis explained it to Celever about three times, the gang could move from Dragonite's house, to the lab of DHR, the robot professor.

    Once they arrived in the house of DHR (robots DO need houses, yes), the three kids asked why DHR had them come to his house. Ellis did the talking, and said: 'Yo, you may be dem cool robot with ze lazers, but y ya letting ma come to ya house, lad?' DHR said in a clear, British and almost non-robotic: 'You are here because of this new device I made in my lab, the Pokédex, you are going to fill it for me, with all Unova Pokémon.' Dragonite instantly noticed an odd thing in DHR's story and said: 'You made this yourself you say, then explain why it says "Made in China" on the back...' The robot didn't have an answer to that, of course, so he quickly pushed some Pokéballs to the kids, and said that they could take one of them. Ellis didn't really like any of them, so he decided that he would use the Emboar to catch a Pokémon and then be done with it. After the kids got their Pokédexes, Celever didn't have a clue what they should do with it, so DHR had to explain it once again. Dragonite found a nitpick again and said that the Pokédex was copyrighted by Oak... clearly not DHR. DHR bribed the question away with some Poké and the kids walked out of the house.

    They decided that they were a gang (well, Ellis decided that, Dragonite reffered to it as a group of friends and Celever was too stupid to understand the whole point) and that they would go on an adventure together. When Dragonite tried to explain how to catch a Pokémon, Ellis threatened to shoot him if he didn't shut up, and even Celever got how easy it was to catch one after the first time. After seeing some Pokémon that had no interest on Ellis whatsoever, he found a Patrat that had such ugly eyelids that Ellis decided to use his sharpshooting skills and shoot his eyelids off. Both of them. With one shot. After he did this, Celever and Dragonite were both shocked, but Ellis thought that it was "really cool" to have a Patrat without eyelids. He called him Lidless and thus his first Pokémon was captured.



    Edit: If either Bearded Dragonite or DHR has any comments on being mentioned, please do say so. Also, Celever helped me with certain grammar... :P

    I grammar checked that! I am awesome clearly.

    Anyway cbt take dogbird the pidgey.

    Pidgey thinks that he is a dog, so he does dog stuff. He likes to whine and whine and whimper and bark and make annoying noises 24/7 that you just want your heart to die. Now since Pidgey cannot learn growl your Pidgey must always be flapping around to make annoying noises, so it must keep gust. Keep gust until it solos a gym leader that is not bugsy.
    Dogs love being taken on walks and thanks to the mechanics of HG and SS you can even take your beloved dog bird on a walk! It must lead your party every time you enter a city, it doesn't like the routes though so may never be in the lead of your party then. Shy dog.
    Dogbird also wants to talk with other dogs, so it must come in and solo any growlithe or arcanine you see. Or any other dog pokemon. I just can't remember them.
    Dogbird, as a shy dog, may never use moves that damage except for gust, which is him complaining about doing damage, until the solo, where he may get a normal STAB.

    Enjoy :3
