    @texas as a fellow leafs fan i'm reserving a spot for your challenge, i'll edit something in tomorrow. Also I see 1 challenge having you catch giratina and another telling you to solo it... good luck with that.
    EDIT: Here's your challenge. You get a male shinx with rivalry named "#1LeafsFan", the only restriction i'm giving it is it must learn and keep roar, (if it had anything resembling coverage I would give it more restrictions). Good luck.
    Also @sprocket I'm pretty sure no chansey means no blissey aswell and horsea is post E4 (he also didn't say if he could trade to evolve it into kingdra).
    Finally (I hope) @iggy no whirlpool in platinum so think up a replacement move.

    I'm pretty sure the game has a time machine...Oh it doesn't...
    Never said he had to use it, just take the nature...

    Okay, I'll change from Giratina to another random Legendary (Azelf)...

    Take a Houndour. Once you catch it, use the Coin Flip Poketch app four times. Count teh Magikarp as heads, the other side as tails.

    If you get zero heads, then Houndour/Houndoom must have an all-physical movepool (use TMs to immediately teach it physical moves) and solo one of Wake's Pokemon before evolving. You must be at least Level 29 when doing so. (Hint: Heart Scale Thunder Fang!!!)

    If you get one head, then Houndour/Houndoom must know one Fire move, one Dark move, one status move, and one free choice move, and solo Volkner at one point. Evolve when you want.

    If you get two heads, you may evolve whenever you want, but you cannot use a move with higher Base Power of 60 (60 is ok, 61 is not. Hidden Power is fine, Natural Gift/Return/Frustration is not)

    If you get three heads, then you solo Cyrus at Celestic Town to evolve.

    If all four are heads, you don't have to solo anything, but you don't get to evolve until level 41, and Houndour may not be the highest level pokemon on your team.

    It must be the first five flips! No changing to get the challAnge you want!



    Also, have fun soloing Candice with a Togepi!

    @Texas Cloverleaf, you get a Blissey! It must be a +SpD or +SpA nature, otherwise no restrictions, have fun with it.

    And before you reject it, you said no Chansey, you didn't say anything about Chansey's evolution! However if you do reject it, take a Horsea. It must evolve to Kingdra as quickly as possible. It's ability must be Sniper, and it cannot learn any move with a base power higher than 65.

    AkaneDomo, take a Nidoran M & name it Odin.

    Must Solo Misty to evolve into Nidorino & Giovanni to evolve into Nidoking. Your Pokemon may only have 2 attacking moves.

    Have fun.

    AkaneDomo, I give you a Gyarados. However, in a departure from my tradition of all-special Gyaras, it may learn anything, with the only restrictions being that it must solo an E4 member every time you challenge the E4.

    AkaneDomo, your starter is a Bulbasaur. It may evolve into Ivysaur after soloing one Pokémon from Brock, one from Misty, one from Lt. Surge, and one from Erika. May evolve into Venusaur after soloing one Pokémon from Sabrina, one from Koga, one from Blaine and one from Giovanni. No restrictions in movesets and stuff. Good luck!

    AkaneDomo, you get a Weezing. The only attacking moves it may know are Thunderbolt, Fire Blast or Sludge Bomb. Name him "StndrdNrds". Good luck. (BTW, if you cant see it, the nickname is Standard Nerds. A) It sounds cooler than 'StndrdWall" and B) I felt like yet again adding out of place, badly done referance.)

    EDIT: So Texas needs another one to hah? I'll reseve one for that to.

    EDIT 2: Look farmiliar?
    Just replace the location with Pastoria City. Good Luck :p

    @Texas Cloverleaf and Akane Domo: You both get exactly the same challenge. It is variable.

    Here are the steps to find your Pokemon:
    1. Pick any country.
    2. Use a search engine to find the latitude and longitude of that country's capital. (Be sure you find degrees, minutes, and seconds.)
    3. Add together the degrees from both, minutes from both, and seconds from both, then add those together.
    4. Find the first Pokemon alphabetically you can have (if you can trade, that counts) whose base stat total is within 30 of that number. However, you MUST start your alphabet on the first letter of the country you chose.

    Once you have your Pokemon:
    5. Name your Pokemon after the country you chose (removing vowels if necessary).
    6. Have it solo the first two Gyms (outside of the leaders) after you catch it. You must catch it ASAP. For example, if you get Starly, it must solo Roark and Gardenia's Gyms, except for Roark and Gardenia.
    7. If you get something that can only be caught after Gym 7, have it solo the eighth Gym leader's entire Gym (including the GL) as well as ten Trainers in Victory Road.

    Good luck, and let us know what you get!

    @Akane Domo, to counteract your heavy weakness to Psychic, I give you Scyther. Teach it Pursuit, Wing Attack/Aerial Ace, Swords Dance, and Fury Cutter/Slash/Steel Wing.

    The Octillery got rejected so fast it`s not even funny. Otherwise it looks good so far although I am iffy on the Blissey.

    Looks like I need one more mon, rules at the top of this page.

    Texas, take a Shieldon. It must know 3 special attacks and metal burst. It must also solo 2 gym leader mains in order to evolve.

    Right, fair enough.

    Don't be, the thing was a complete bitch for years... But thanks. However, Mareep does not exist in Crystal, you have to trade for it, according to Serebii. Which I cannot do.

    Yes he is. And that seems doable. I will CRY if I get Igglybuff though.

    That seems a little easy, but thanks!

    ... That sound you hear is me weeping. I believe that's actually impossible, as the only remotely effective moves I can use will probably be Thunder and Night Shade, I guess, the former of which is inaccurate, and the latter of which is crazy weak. Can we negotiate this to, say, evolving if I solo Morty with it?

    So at the moment, the team is:

    - Cyndaquil/Totodile/Chikorita (depends on the rest of the team line-up, must keep one of its initial moves)
    - Growlithe (must solo Bugsy's entire Gym to evolve)
    - Odd Egg Pokemon (must keep Dizzy Punch, must evolve to final form by Elite 4, unless it is Shiny Pichu, Normal Pichu, Shiny Igglybuff, Shiny Cleffa)
    - Gastly (must solo Morty and Jasmine to evolve to Haunter (... :'(), most solo an Elite Four member, and two Kanto Gym Leaders)

    Two more slots!

    Oh, darn, I'll have to use that Mareep for someone else.

    In that case, take a Bellsprout. If it solos Falkner, either keep it and have it solo Erika or trade it for Rocky the Onix in one of the houses in Violet City. Rocky must solo Pryce, and he can never learn Earthquake. If you keep Bellsprout, name him/her "ByeByeBird".

    Take a sandshrew. It can't learn any hms. All it's moves must be not very effective on steel types. It must solo the steel gym to evolve.


    Edit: actually you can not get a sandlash till later so use quagsire. Name it steel killer

    Chocolate, it seems the only way I'll beat Falkner is by grinding to level 15, learning Sleep Powder, praying I survive Gust, and getting lucky with Wrap/Vine Whip. Jesus. Difficult, but doable. ByeByeBird joins the party! I've always wanted to use a badass mo-fo Bellsprout...

    Plusle, do I have to solo Jasmine to evolve Wooper to Quagsire, or can I evolve it when I please? Also, "steel killer" is too long a name. Will an abbreviation suffice? And are its move requirements the same as they would be for Sandshrew?

    - Cyndaquil (to be replaced with the first Pokemon of a different type I find)
    - Growlithe (must solo Bugsy's entire Gym to evolve)
    - Odd Egg Pokemon (must keep Dizzy Punch, must evolve to final form by Elite 4, unless it is Shiny Pichu, Normal Pichu, Shiny Igglybuff, Shiny Cleffa)
    - Gastly (must solo Morty and Jasmine to evolve to Haunter (... :'(), most solo an Elite Four member, and two Kanto Gym Leaders)
    - Bellsprout (ByeByeBird, must solo Falkner and Erika)
    - Quagsire (StlKiller, requirements unsure)

    I gave you that Growlithe because I was short on time. I can make it harder if you want (but given the rest of your team, I'm not sure you'll want that).

    You are correct, Dummy. I do not. Gastly and Bellsprout alone are making me sadface...

    Platinum Scramble
    - I reserve the right to refuse your challenge.
    - I will refuse anything that requires grinding, or is just plain boring to use (Such as a Pokemon with no damaging moves, that has to solo Pokemon by PP stalling)
    - I want 9 Pokemon since I am done for the night. I will choose the six I will use.
    - Automatic ineligible list: Bug types, Ponyta, Bidoof, Starly, Chansey.

    So... the challenges.
    Show Hide
    - Let's go with...Togepi! Yes, hatch the egg Cynthia gives you in Eterna. Upon hatching, nickname the baby Togepi "Spasm". Spasm is different from other Togepi. (S)he is always jealous of other Pokemon because they get cool moves, but (s)he's left out in the proverbial cold. As a result, Spasm must always know Metronome, and use it at least once against every Gym Leader, starting with the next Leader you face (either Wake or Maylene). It can only evolve to Togetic when it solos Candice, and may evolve into Togekiss at the entrance to Victory Road. It must use Metronome once against Aaron, twice against Bertha, three times against Flint, and five times against Lucian, and must lead against Cynthia, where it must use Metronome at least twice. (Galladiator) Accepted. Togepi. meh.

    - Here are the steps to find your Pokemon:
    1. Pick any country.
    2. Use a search engine to find the latitude and longitude of that country's capital. (Be sure you find degrees, minutes, and seconds.)
    3. Add together the degrees from both, minutes from both, and seconds from both, then add those together.
    4. Find the first Pokemon alphabetically you can have (if you can trade, that counts) whose base stat total is within 30 of that number. However, you MUST start your alphabet on the first letter of the country you chose.
    Once you have your Pokemon:
    5. Name your Pokemon after the country you chose (removing vowels if necessary).
    6. Have it solo the first two Gyms (outside of the leaders) after you catch it. You must catch it ASAP. For example, if you get Starly, it must solo Roark and Gardenia's Gyms, except for Roark and Gardenia.
    7. If you get something that can only be caught after Gym 7, have it solo the eighth Gym leader's entire Gym (including the GL) as well as ten Trainers in Victory Road. (Dummy007) Accepted. Should be cool.

    - Texas Cloverleaf, I will give you a variable Pokemon.
    Late in the game you go to Lake Valor & find an Azelf. You think Woah, it looks cool & decide to catch it. After countless Pokeballs, you finally catch it! You got a Legendary! You take it out of the PC & throw it out...only to see that it was a disguise & a random Pokemon comes out...
    What Pokemon it is depends on Azelf's nature...
    Neutral: It was a Drifloon! It must know & keep Stockpile & Swallow/Spit Up & evolve before Victory Road. Must KO 5 Pokemon in the Pokemon League.
    +Atk: It was a Scyther! (Or Scizor if you can trade) It must know & keep Fury Cutter & Double Hit. Must KO 10 Pokemon in the Victory Road.
    +Def: It was a Duskull! It must know & keep Shadow & Curse & evolve into Dusclops before Victory Road. Must KO 10 Pokemon in the Victory Road.
    +SAtk: It was a Kirlia! It must know & keep Imprison & Magical Leaf & evolve into Gardevoir before Victory Road. Must KO 5 Pokemon in the Pokemon League.
    +SDef: It was a Swablu! It must know & keep Mirror Move & Refresh & evolve before Victory Road. Must KO 10 Pokemon in Victory Road.
    +Spd: It was a Golbat! It must know & keep Mean Look & Poison Fang & evolve before Victory Road. Must KO 5 Pokemon in the Pokemon League.
    Either way, name it Random or ItsARandom. Have fun (And NO SRing). (ItsARandom) Accepted. I will however, soft reset if I get the Swablu since I used one in my last Emerald challenge.

    - Take a Chimchar. Soft-reset for a nature that lowers either Speed or Attack. It may never learn Nasty Plot. It may never learn Special STAB. Have it solo Gardenia to evolve into Monferno and Byron for Infernape. Solo Giratina with it just for kicks
    Name him "IFlySolo" (chocolate-kipp) Accepted.

    -You get a male shinx with rivalry named "#1LeafsFan", the only restriction i'm giving it is it must learn and keep roar. (Dark Ray) Rejected. Me no likes Shinx.

    -Take a Houndour. Once you catch it, use the Coin Flip Poketch app four times. Count teh Magikarp as heads, the other side as tails.
    If you get zero heads, then Houndour/Houndoom must have an all-physical movepool (use TMs to immediately teach it physical moves) and solo one of Wake's Pokemon before evolving. You must be at least Level 29 when doing so. (Hint: Heart Scale Thunder Fang!!!)
    If you get one head, then Houndour/Houndoom must know one Fire move, one Dark move, one status move, and one free choice move, and solo Volkner at one point. Evolve when you want.
    If you get two heads, you may evolve whenever you want, but you cannot use a move with higher Base Power of 60 (60 is ok, 61 is not. Hidden Power is fine, Natural Gift/Return/Frustration is not)
    If you get three heads, then you solo Cyrus at Celestic Town to evolve.
    If all four are heads, you don't have to solo anything, but you don't get to evolve until level 41, and Houndour may not be the highest level pokemon on your team. (detroit lolcat) Accepted. Should be good.

    -Texas Cloverleaf, you get a Blissey! It must be a +SpD or +SpA nature, otherwise no restrictions, have fun with it. (Sprocket) Accepted.

    -Iggdrasil's Octillery Rejected sooo fast. I hate this challenge :P

    -Texas, take a Shieldon. It must know 3 special attacks and metal burst. It must also solo 2 gym leader mains in order to evolve. (Dexington) Rejected. Sheildon sux.

    Therefore the team is:
    -Galladiator's Togepi
    -Dummy007's variable challenge
    -ItsARandom's variable challenge
    -chocolate-kipp's Chimchar
    -detroitlolcat's Houndour
    -Sprocket's Blissey
    I'll probably start it on the weekend. Let's see how it goes.

    Pearl No-Evo Scramble Update #4

    Meh...Random LC Mons Scramble Update #4 here for y'all to see...

    Update #1
    Update #2
    Update #3

    The Pokemon...
    Show Hide

    • Shinx (Lailaps): Must know Return (Athenodoros)
    • Piplup (Mr Penguin): Must be male. Must solo rival's main Pokemon at each battle. Once Surf is learned, it may never learn another level up or Water type move (Sprocket)
    • Buneary (Larolla): When it learns a level up move, the oldest move is replaced. It is to be taught exactly 2 TM's/HM's after each gym, starting with the 2nd. Cannot learn more than 2 TM's or 2 HM's at any time (auramaster)
    • Misdreavus (Missy): Can only learn & use STAB moves. For it to learn other type attacks, you must own an Unown of an appropriate HP (Paradox808)
    • Hippopotas: Cannot use Normal-type moves. If it has one, it must be overwritten ASAP (DetroitLolcat)
    • Starly: Must have a moveset of Quick Attack/Agility, Whirlwind/Endeavor, Brave Bird/Take Down & Fly before Palkia. Must Solo Gardenia at a level below 17, Maylene below 33, & One of Volkner's Pokemon (Chocolate-Kipp)

    Adventure from Post-Cobble Badge to the obtaining of the Fen Badge in text...
    Show Hide
    So, I'm fresh from my third badge, & now I must teach Larolla 2 TM's. I go to the Dept. Store & buy the TM for Protect & teach it to her. I also teach her the recently acquired Drain Punch, & I'm ready to go. But first, I go to the Spacemen's Warhouse to team up with Lucas to deal with the spacemen. Mid-Battle, I turn on Lucas for stealing my kills & get Missy to prover her brokeness by killing off his party (How mean am I?). He had a Clefairy who was killed by the Spacemen, a Kadabra killed by Missy, & a Monferno killed by Missy...After the battle, I get the HM for Fly & teach it to Chocolate. I then heal up & go South to Route 214.

    Along the way, I go into a maniacs cave & catch a new member: Stortamus the male Hippopotas. As it may not know Normal type moves, I replace Yawn with Stealth Rock & Take Down (eventually) with Sand Tomb. I eventually arrive at the hotel on Valor Lakefront & beat the trainers in the cafe. After resting up, I equip an Exp. Share to Mr Penguin as a rival battle is coming up & he has to solo the grass turtle, & also teach him the TM for Grass Knot, as I head out for Route 213.

    I eventually arrive in Pastoria where I heal up & deal with the trainers on Route 212. I then arrive back in Hearthome, where I ride my way to Route 210 to buy some Moomoo Milk before flying back to Pastoria to take on the gym challenge. After beating the minor trainers, I confront Crasher Wake for Gym Badge #4.

    Random's team at this point:
    Missy Lv27
    Larolla Lv27
    Stortamus Lv27
    Lailaps Lv29
    Mr Penguin Lv31
    Chocolate Lv33

    I sent in Missy while Crasher Wake sent out a Gyarados. Missy had a little bit of fun, stripping Gyarados of Brine PP & Confusing it, but the fun ended when Gyarados showed that he had Swagger. Missy hit himself & Gyarados KOed with Dragon Rage.
    So I send in the incredibly loyal Lailaps, who wasn't worried when Gyarados showed that he had Swagger & used it against him, OHKOing with Spark.
    Lailaps then called it a day & Mr Penguin came in to clean up the rest of Crasher Wake's party, OHKOing Quagsire with Grass Knot, before easily shrugging off two Flaotzel attacks to 2HKO with Grass Knot, winning me the battle, the Fen Badge, & the TM for Brine.

    After that, I teach Larolla Double Team over Protect, & replace Double Team with Dig (No one said I could overlap =P). I then heal up at the Pastoria Pokemon Centre & get ready for the next leg of the adventure. So, Four Badges down & four to go. Things are really strarting to get difficult, but with my determination, I will get through. And that's where we leave off...

    Four more for HeartGold, those who've already given a challenge may give me a second one now. :)

    Gave this challenge to someone else but they couldn't do it.

    Take a Mareep. It is the only Pokemon that can be used in the Lighthouse. Never use it against Gym Leaders or Elites. Can be used against the Champion though. Name it "BakNDaBall".

    Hooray for random quotes...

    Already have a Mareep Chocolate-Kipp (If it was aimed at me).

    EDIT: Meh, I'll take it.
