    Also, I was thinking each person should be able to add one Pokemon to his/her team from the group they were selected to hand out. Otherwise the OU people are stuck with only 3 OU Pokemon, while the UU people (such as myself) get 4.

    I was trying to avoid wildcards because I didn't want to see 4 heatrans or scizors as well as 4 venasaurs or milotics.

    What do other people think about this?

    not too worried about it, could go either way. I don't know how much it will even end up changing things.

    I'd say we just do the matches when we please, as it is really impossible to accomodate everybody.

    i say just make a deadline for when the matches have to be completed by, like say a few days to a week after you post the pairings. just ask for a post on the result (honor system), or just have a 3rd party watch the battle so we dont have any arguments and stuff if it has to come down to that.

    Ungulateman, take a Pikachu. If you evolve it to Raichu, or equip it with a Light Ball, it cannot know Electric-type moves.

    ungulateman: Not too hard? Hmm...

    Start with a Chimchar. If it has a -Atk nature, it must have at least 3 Fighting-type moves and no Fire-type moves once possible (use TMs if you can). If it has a -Sp. Atk nature, it may only have Fire type moves (TMs included). If it has a netural nature or a -Def nature, it may not have Fire or Fighting-type moves. If it has a -Sp. Def nature, congrats. You may teach it anything you want.

    Also, NO RESETTING. That's cheating, and you know it. :P

    Ungulateman, Take a Buizel & name it Jet.

    Buizel can only learn Quick Attack, Aqua Jet, Agility, & Swift (As soon as it's able to learn these moves, of course). Buizel can only evolve when, it has this moveset & Solos Crasher Wake with this moveset. After evolution, you are able to replace one of its moves with a move of choice.

    Considering my current luck with natures (can you say first try Modest Piplup?), I'll probably get a friggin' Naive one. :p

    Liking the look of the Pikachu idea, thanks.

    Buizel is really going to get used to Super Potions, I bet. >_>

    What about if his Chimchar has a -Speed nature? Did he win? :P

    As an added challenge (one of my famous "You are this Trainer" challenges), you are a scaredy cat! If you are a Female character, you MUST run away from every wild Bug you encounter (dual types like Bug/Flying DO count). If you are a Male character, you MUST run away from every wild Normal Pokemon you encounter (dual types like Normal/Flying do not count). Challenges issued by others take precedence over this challenge.

    You get the first poke you catch from the great marsh. when you attempt to find this pokemon, you must attempt to catch each pokemon you encounter in the great marsh (when i say attempt, it means to at least throw one pokeball at each pokemon).

    Once caught, the pokemon may not use STAB moves unless it either:

    A) evolves

    or

    B) solos all trainers in the gym (this doesnt have to include the gym leader)

    if you managed to catch an fully evolved poke you're gonna be stuck with option B of course :P. good luck and tell us what you get.


    @sprocket Speed doesnt exist xD

    I'll only post Round 1 in about 10 hours (holidays are over) but I'll do it the same way almost all the tournaments are done (like Paradox said).
    Round 1 will be the longest because we all need to build our teams and test them

    @ungulateman: You must catch the first Shinx you come across.

    Oh no, your Shinx is suffering from a limp leg! Must be some kind of birth defect or something, poor little guy. The power of its moves when totaled together must never exceed 100. Furthermore, to evolve Shinxe you must solo a gym leader. This helps the tyke regain some strength upon evolution, and the total power limit is increased to 150. Once more, you must solo a gym leader to evolve. Just look at that, your Shinx has overcome its previous injury and turned into quite the sporty teammate! Power limit is maxed out at 200. Be careful, though; it still has signs of its previous handicap. Any time your Luxray is feinted in battle, your power limit is decreased by 10. This stacks for every knockout, up until 12:00 AM on Sunday where the value is returned back to 200. Naturally, this goes for every week until you beat the elite four, at which point Luxray is fully strengthened and has no power limit for its moves! On note of that, if you are knocked out enough that your moves exceed your power limit, you must chose a move to ban for the entire week until the limit is reset on Sunday.

    Not too hard, but complicated. Have fun with this one!

    ungulateman: Use a Houndour. It cannot evolve and must solo Candice by only using one attack. It cannot be nicknamed.

    Any ideas to test our teams? They're part OU, part UU, so the only people who they can be used well against is other Scramblers.

    I've been practicing mine on the OU ladder and it's been good practice. I hadn't played in a while so I'm facing lower ranked players whose teams also have a bunch of UU Pokes.

    OU ladder. And remember, no one is expecting your UU pokemons so you have the advantage of the surprise.
