    That's still pretty ridiculous, and two other people have given more resonable offers... sorry :/

    FINAL PARTY:
    1. Wosha-ott the Oshawott. Must switch out upon taking a critical hit. After learning focus energy, must use focus energy before attacking. Can become Dewott after 10 crits and Samurott after 15 more. Must solo Clay and 3 E4 pokemon.
    2. Master C. the Bisharp. Must solo 8th gym and all possible incarnations of N.
    3. Basculin (who I shall name Krillin for no apparent reason). Must have adaptability and cannot use TMs or HMs.
    4. Aqua the Maractus. Must have water absorb. Moveset must contain synthesis, ingrain, and an absorb-family move at all times. Must use synthesis every time its hp hits the red (ingrain if synthesis is PP-less)
    5. 1337 the Pansear. Can only know 1 fire-type move at a time, must evolve at lvl 33, and must solo 7 gym leader pokemon.
    6. NotCrafty the Sandile. Must fight every Scraggy/Scrafty for two turns. Must use a status move followed by strongest attack on all other dark/fights. Must solo a member of the E4.

    Will start this when I get on top of my schoolwork.

    Actually, he'd only be able to USE Rain-Dance if it's already raining.
    Worst. Loophole. Ever.

    @RaptorRuler, catch a Krabby in Olivine City. But this isn't your Pokemon, trade it to the fisherman who wants to trade in Olivine City and recieve Billy the Voltorb. It is upset that he was traded for a Water Pokemon so it must solo Misty and any other Water Pokemon belonging to a Gym Leader/E4 member. It may never run from a Water Pokemon, or switch out against one, so it must defeat it or faint trying. If he faces a Water/Ground, another team member may defeat it only after he faints. He may learn any move you want to teach him but may only evolve after defeating Chuck's Poliwrath, Pryce's Seel and Dewgong, and Clair's Kingdra. Good luck!

    Pave the way for a Diamond scramblocke ala Its A Random. Rules will be as in IAR's White scramblocke, except it's my Diamond.
    • Firstly, instead of taking the usual 12 Pokemon, I'll be taking Pokemon as if it was a Normal Nuzlocke
    • So it isn't confusing, the Pokemon I get are planned in advance, where you guys give me the Pokemon.
    • 1 Pokemon caught per Route/Cave/Whatever, with interactive Pokemon, gift Pokemon & traded Pokemon not counting towards the limit, with no duplicates.
    • I'll not be asking for all Pokemon all at once. Instead, I'll be asking for them in waves.
    • Each user can give up to 4 Pokemon maximum for the entire Scramblocke, 1 per wave. I will keep track of this.
    There's the differences, now for the Nuzlocke part, the in-game rules...
    • If a Pokemon faints, it is boxed in a dead box permanently unless specified.
    • Instead of the first Pokemon on a Route rule, I will catch the Pokemon available in that particular area that I was assigned.
    • Nicknames are Mandatory, however, I decide the nicknames, not you guys. Also, they'll follow a theme, & that theme will be Smogon Users...
    • If I were to "Black Out", & I have any living Pokemon in the PC, then I can continue. Game Over is either when I succeed in reaching the Hall of Fame, or all Scramblemons I have obtained to that point have all died.
    And now, the rules for the Challenges
    • Diamond Version.
    • I can trade evolve.
    • Easy-Medium Difficulty.
    • No Mandatory solos/KO's (eg. Solo every regular trainer in the game), since there's no guarantee I can fulfill them. Requirement solos/KO's (eg. Solo 10 Trainers to evolve) on the other hand, are acceptable.
    • You may not give any restrictions involving any major Trainer Battles (eg. Rival, Gym Leaders, Commanders, E4, & anything else I missed). I want to formulate my own tactics for these battles.
    • All Pokemon must be able to fully evolve.
    • Specify which area the Scramblemon appears.
    • No duplicate Pokemon or any "You may not exceed (Level)" challenges.
    • Drudgery is a no, but Grinding is a yes.
    • Remember to follow the rules above.
    • Reserving the right to say no to challenges.
    • Don't reserve ff's.

    Oh, that reminds me: I need an easy Black Scramble for a friend of mine. This friend is very new to pokemon, so it needs to be easy, but not no restrictions. I'll give the friend 8 to choose from.

    Axmaster68, give your friend a Tepig named Snouty.
    Snouty wishes he were a faster Pokémon, like Jolteon or Ninjask.
    As such, he must use Flame Charge immediately every time he is sent out. (After level 15)

    @Axmaster68, give your friend Batman the Woobat. It wants to be Batman so it must know a Dark attack at all times. It must also always have a Psychic and Flying move. The last move should be Status. It must be used in every battle with N. No evolution Restrictions. I hope your friend has fun.

    Tyranitarphantom, take a Taillow and name it Gutsy.

    Gutsy doesn't like to learn new moves, so it can only use Peck until it completes some tasks, in order.
    The Gauntlet:
    1) Solo a trainer who has at least one Pokémon who resists the flying-type. You may now use Focus Energy.
    2) Get a critical hit in two out of three battles in a row.
    3) Get a trainer-owned Pokémon to minus-six attack with Growl before KOing it. You may now use Quick Attack.
    4) Quick-Attack ten flying-types, to prove your speed. You may now use Double Team.
    5) Get to plus-six evasion in a gym battle. You may now use Endeavor.
    6) Use Endeavor when you have between 1 and 5 HP. Gutsy must have been sent out with full HP.

    If you complete all these tasks, you may use whatever moves you want and you may evolve Gutsy to Swellow.

    No matter what, Gutsy must solo Norman, every trainer in his gym, and at least three Pokémon in the elite four.
    Good luck!

    Tranitarphantom, if you want REALLY SUPER hard, then here you go: you get Humble the Petilil. Humble's family was always using the annoying super powerful moves and boosting moves all the time, so Humble, being the most humble member of her family, must never use a move over 40 BP, and never use a boosting move. Also, Humble loves to help his allies and his opponents, so Humble must know Helping Hand and After You ASAP, and must never use the moves in their places, EVER, or be forced to face a level 1 penalty, which will be mentioned later. The only attacks Humble can use are Absorb and Mega Drain, and she only gets one at a time, to keep the health of all high, and to keep her from those mean taunters. Once she gets to Burgh, she realizes she must show that even the most humble of pokemon can solo gym leaders like no tommorrow, so she must solo Burgh and Brycen, being no higher than the level of the lowest leveled GLMP, with Absorb, and 15 items max for both. She can never evolve, as then she would be too powerful, and must have a -SAtk nature if possible, but catch no more than 10 Petilil in the process, and use the closest, to -SAtk, like -Spd would be next closest. When you get to the E4, solo any 1 pokemon from each member with only absorb, then solo 2 of either N or Ghestis's pokemon, to show those horrible people what a humble pokemon can do.
    The penalties for fainting OR for anything wrong mentioned above:
    Level 1: Solo 100 pokemon with SE STABs
    Level 2: 500 of the above
    Level 3: Learn Sunny Day, and use it against 250 pokemon with SE STABs, and solo 500 more.
    Level 4: Level 3 doubled
    Level 5: Absorb is lost except for solos
    If she ever faints, use an RNG to choose a scramblemon on your white team to always be in the party with. Finally, she can hold any item that will not help her in battle, like a Macho Brace.

    Hard enough for ya?
    Anyways, all are accepted, execpt the E4 restriction from TalkingLion. Will post the team in a new post.

    Axmaster: Your friend can have a TSBW1 the Venipede. It has to use Rollout once per gym leader. After they have cleared Cold Storage they can evolve it into Whirlipede, and then once again into Scolipede when they've beaten Twist Mountain. It can never learn Megahorn.

    @Axmaster:Your friend gets Complex the Tympole. He must choose one restriction from each of the following categories for each of Tympole's evolutionary stages and may not repeat a restriction:

    Category 1: Moves
    May not use STAB.
    May only use physical moves.
    May only use special moves.

    Category 2: Opponents
    May only fight opponents against whom its STAB(s) are:
    Not very effective
    Neutral
    Super Effective

    Category 3: Healing Restrictions
    May only be healed at Pokemon Centers.
    May only be healed using berries.
    May only be healed using items.

    Category 4: Item Restrictions
    May only hold berries.
    May hold any item that is not a berry.
    May not hold an item.

    Category 5: Soloing (may use any attack, regardless of move restrictions)
    Must solo 2 Gym Leaders' Main Pokemon.
    Must solo a Gym, both Trainers and Leader.
    Must solo one battle with two of Cheren, Bianca, and N.

    Complex may evolve after completing the solo requirement. (If this is 'too hard,' cut it down to the first two categories; if that's still 'too hard,' cut it to the first.)

    Axmaster, take a Pansage and name it Clover. Clover likes berries very much, so it must always hold a berry ASAP. Once it uses up a berry, it must immediately be given a new one after the battle. Keep track of this. Solo Clay to Bianca on Route 6/Driftveil City to evolve into Simisage. Once you get to the Elite 4, count the number of berries you used up. That is the number of Pokemon in the Elite 4/N/Ghetis battles you must solo. Good luck.

    Hmm, let's see. This friend gets something good, like a female Joltik named LIGHTS. LIGHTS enjoys bright and flashy things, so it must always have at least two Electric-type moves. In order to evolve, it must solo two of Skyla's gym assistants. It must also be used in every major battle afterward that isn't soloed by another Poke.
