    (I assume this is HeartGold)
    You get a Bellsprout! Call it Sage Hater. Obviously, this Pokemon hates all the Sages in Sprout Tower, so it must kill at least one Pokemon from every Sage in the game. The Sage at the top of the Tower is obviously the Great Sage, so you must solo that Sage.

    Also, you have to solo the Kimono Girls, as they seem like sage-like characters too. You cannot evolve into Weepinbell until you reach Ecruteak City, as Bellsprout hates that place with a passion because they worship Ho-Oh and Lugia there. Sages use magic, obviously, so Sage Hater cannot use any Special moves.

    @bwburke: I asked for a hard challenge, not an impossible one. I think soloing the game with a pidgey is literally impossible especially with half of Red's team knowing Blizzard.

    Btw, thanks, yaya0!

    I'll be taking a very interesting challange in honor of my 1000th post (this was 1,003, but whatever). I'll be doing a COMPETITIVE SCRAMBLE!

    Rules:
    ~You must give me a fully-evolved Pokemon, a nature, an item, an EV spread, and four moves. (IVs will be straight 31 except in the case of Hidden Power.)
    ~I will battle with the team of six on the Smogon Server on PO until I either win five battles in a row or reach a rating of 1250.
    ~Medium-Easy Difficulty
    ~I will only accept challenges from the following: Its_A_Random, Texas Cloverleaf, DetroitLolcat, Son_of_Shadoo, Vratix, and Galladiator. The reason for this is explained below.
    ~You may provide an additional challenge if you wish, but please make it doable.

    In commemoration of this momentous occasion (for no one but me), I would like to thank the six users listed above specifically for being the some of the coolest and nicest people on Smogon. They have all been integral parts of the Scramble Thread as well, and, since I got my true start on Smogon here, I think I should honor them. Shout-outs also go to pretty much everyone else who has posted in the Scramble Thread, including some of the less-active members (not the trolls). Thanks for the first thousand, and here's to a thousand more!

    You will be given the honor of my favorite Pokemon, Swampert, with it's OG moveset of Earthquake, Ice Beam, Surf, and Take Down. The item will be Quick Claw. The Nature is Naughty. Name it Dirty.

    I'm not sure on the EVs, but Dirty's stats must end up as:

    HP: 358
    Attack: 279
    Defense: 235
    Special Attack: 211
    Special Defense: 196
    Speed: 175

    If the opponent has a Pokemon that appears in the Pokemon Emerald Elite Four and Swampert faints, you must forfeit the match.

    The set is based on my first Swampert from Emerald.

    Also, congrats on the 1000!

    ohmygosh thats a great idea. i want to do that too.

    rules:
    6 UU or OU pokemon
    no glaring type weaknesses
    standard sets will be favorable, but if you MUST, come up with a set that is not a gimmick and is usable.

    obviously, no duplicate pokemon, no absurd items... please use standard sets if you can. wanna make this easy, fun, but random.

    i wil be using this in OU MATCHES and if i get a god battle, might warstory it.

    thanks :D

    @bluemon96: You get a Hydreigon named Wallbreakr who can only have three attacking moves, no three of which can be of the same category (i.e. cannot have three special moves or three physical moves). Item must be a Life Orb.

    bluemon96, you get Flinchax the Terrakion. This is due to his presence in VGC 2011 making the words ______ Flinched! More common then in any other metagame. In honor of his nickname, he must know the standard VGC set. That being, Rock Slide, Close Combat, Quick Attack and Protect. The item must be Focus Sash, with a 252atk/252spe ev spread

    D'aww, Dummy. In that case, you will take the Pokémon you gave me for SPL3...

    - Substitute
    - Dragon Tail

    Bold Nature, 252 HP, 88 Spd, 168 SpA. Have fun, this set led me to glory... It helps if you have lots of passive damage support in rocks/Toxic, etc.

    You get NOFAIR, the Chikorita. NOFAIR was always upset that Game Freak made it so sucky. As a result, it wants to prove its effectiveness by soloing every Gym leader, bar two (this is your choice) and Lance. Oh, and it may only have one attacking move at any time.

    Hey Pimpgangster, you get, a variation on my Switcher Zigzagoon.

    Switcher Sentret!

    If it is male call it Pelagius
    If it is female call it Glistel

    EDIT: You know what? I went easy on you!

    He wants to be the very best
    Like no shit ever was
    To Switch in is his real test
    A failure, a lost cause.

    In the end, you must.
    Be sent in first against
    Every E4 Member!
    (Excluding Lance!)

    Once he evolves, you must find
    A little everstone.
    Without it he will be blind.
    Can't attack anymore!

    -Has to be lowest leveled 'mon.
    -Must be evolved
    -Must always switch in when Highest levelled mon switches out.
    -Once he evolves, give him an Everstone, without it, he can't use moves.
    -Must be sent in first against every E4 member (Who I'm guessing has to switch into NOFAIR, if rackham agrees)

    XD I freaking love Challange! Will dig up my old cardridge and request one soon! But for now;

    @pimpgangster: how about this one.

    You get a Psyduck! Name it Sgt Swag.

    Sgt Swag is super confident and loves to prance around in front of his enemies. As a result it must always know Tail Whip or Swagger to show his enemies that “IT'S OOONN!”. If the enemy is a freakin' boss it's optional to shout this at the console while executing the move. Moreover it has a rivalry with Water* type pokemon, so when ever you encounter one he must first use Tail Whip or Swagger just to show that he's boss.

    Secondly, his macho behavior that makes him very jealous of stat boosts. Whenever you switch out against an opponent with a significant stat boost** you must switch to Sgt Swag. From here he must either Tail Whip or Psych Up to rub their nancy stat boosts in their face. Because he's such a boss you may choose the order in which you use swagger on a potential water type.

    - If his ability is Cloud Nine: Sgt Swag get's very aggressive under sunny conditions. Whenever you find yourself battling under strong sunlight you must switch to Sgt Swag and attempt to solo the first pokemon you encounter.
    - If his ability is Damp: Sgt Swag has a fued with any explosive pokemon. As a result it must solo every pokemon from the Geodude, Pineco or Voltorb line that you encounter. This takes precedent over any type-related solo conditions.

    Evolution: As a Psyduck you must swagger every single pokemon of one gymleader to gain confidence. If you also manage to KO any pokemon during the gymbattle, Sgt Swag will know that no other pokemon can swagger like he can. Overjoyed he can finally evolve. But since he's grown so fond of his swaggering style none of the previous conditions are restricted. In fact, his new ambition is to swagger his way through a full team of an E-4 member too!

    Have Fun!


    Summary: Swagger/Tail Whip any Water-type before attacking. Psych-Up/Tail Whip any pokemon that gains more that one point in any stat when switching/fainting. Either switch in an solo the next poke under sunny conditions or solo all Geodude, Pineco and Voltorb family pokemon. Swagger all pokemon of any gymleader and KO one of his pokes. Swagger all pokemon of an E-4 member.


    * The type may be changed to Flying or Psychic when a conflict arises with another challange.

    @Smaug: You get Bidoof Sux the Wooper. It cannot learn any moves that Bidoof can. In addition, it cannot run away from any Fighting- or Electric-types to prove its superiority in handling these types over Bibarel. When it evolves, rename it BibarelSux, and it cannot learn any moves that Bibarel can.

    Okay, a Starter? You get Squirtle!

    It can only learn moves that are available in Gen 1. It must solo any Wild Pokemon that's higher leveled that it. It can only evolve into Blastoise if it never faints as a Squirtle or Wartortle, so be careful! Nickname it DontKillMe. Change it to YayNotDead as a Blastoise if you evolve it.

    @tomtom5858: You get 20-20 the Caterpie. No restrictions until it evolves into Butterfree, at which point it can only use moves that have 100 or --- accuracy. Have it solo Koga.

    @tomtom5858:

    You get MEOW MIX the Meowth! It's a bit of a kleptomaniac, so its ability must be Pickup. You can never give it an item, because it wouldn't be able to pick up things. It's afraid of being paralyzed by Electric types, as it would be more difficult to pick up things, so you can't use it against Electric-type Pokémon until it evolves. It seeks to find its hidden power, so it must learn and keep Hidden Power to evolve. After evolution, its ability will no longer be Pickup. It will be Limber, freeing it from the Electric-type restriction as it can no longer be paralyzed.

    A LeafGreen Scramble, eh? Alright then, you'll enjoy what you're gettin'.

    Take a Poliwag. It doesn't realise what year it is, and can only use moves that become/remain Physical in Gen 4. Name it FFUUUTURE!

    Easy enough?

    You get Electafire!

    Depending on which game you are playing, you get either Electabuzz or Magmar (they are version exclusives, can't be bothered checking)

    They aren't accepting of they're respective types, and wish to be the other, so if you have Electabuzz, you must have a Fire-Type move and use it always. Likewise, if you have Magmar, you must have an Electric-Type move and use it always. You are only allowed to use stab when you are on red health.

    His name is Electafire.
    You must solo Blaine with Magmar
    You must solo Sabrina with Electabuzz
