    Pearl Warm Up Solo Run

    Hey there. With my Hard Solo Run with a Turtwig, I've been thinking "Hang on Random, you're really jumping into the deep end, aren't you? You've had no experience at a solo run, shouldn't you do something easier first?" So that's why, before I do the Hard Solo run, I want to do a Warm-Up Solo run, to give me some experience at doing solo runs before doing the real thing. This will start after the conclusion of my current Pearl No-Evo Scramble. And yes, I will do it.

    Some rules I expect you to follow before giving me a challenge...

    • Pearl Version.
    • Can trade for evolution purposes.
    • It's a Solo Run.
    • 5 Pokemon needed, randomly reduced to 1 through RNG, done instant-runoff style.
    • I'm limiting the Pokemon you can choose from to those mentioned in the hide tag at the bottom page.
    • No reservations please. Don't make a placeholder post or say you're editing in my challenge.
    • Easy-Medium difficulty, i.e. Nothing too hard please.
    • No Signature Challenges.
    • Pokemon must be able to fully evolve.
    • No Level caps please.
    • Concerning move restrictions: At least two attacking options, & different attacking types, & none of those "No Good Moves" challenges.
    • No drudgery, please.
    • You can give me a bog-standard challenge if you want.
    • It must be possible in Pearl.
    • Make them fun.
    At the beginning, I'll trade over my solo runee to Pearl as an egg & start.
    The all important list of chosen Pokemon that you must read at all costs!!! (open)

    Take Type Maniac the Misdreavus. Misdreavus must always know four moves that are all of different types. By the time you reach the E4 you must have learned moves of 10 different types. Misdreavus can evolve after battling at least one pokemon of every type.

    @Carbon: His Solrock is invalid anyway because Stone Edge, Stealth Rock and Rock Polish don't exist in LeafGreen.

    I can't read. I didn't forget.

    Change Girafarig to Spiritomb but keep the special part and make sure that Spiritomb has a +Att nature and name it PullYou.

    I want a challenge for emerald, these are my conditions:

    I can't trade.
    I want at least two pokemon before the first gym.
    I want to have a full team of six pokemon before the sixth gym.

    That's it, I think.

    @lluisisern, you get an illumise named "Bug/Elec". This illumise is sad that it's not part electric type, but that won't stop it from using electric attacks! You must teach it 1 of thunderbolt, thunder or shockwave ASAP, you must also teach it flash because flash should also be an electric type move. Solo atleast 1 of wattsons pokemon.
    Good luck.

    @llusisern You get a Nincada, named Ninja. He loves to dodge, so give him Sand-attack. He must use it the first turn every battle, unless it is a flying type. He must evolve into a Shedinja. Because Shedinjas are, well, Shedinjas, there are solo restrictions. However, he may must know exactly two ghost moves and one bug move. Nickname the Shedinja One-shot.

    @lluisisern: Take a female ralts(Sorry about the low chance of catching one). This ralts isn't exactly courageous, and likes to hide, so it can't know any physical move types at all (You can look it up.). Since you start with growl, and can't avoid it or double team, get rid of those moves as soon as you can. It cannot evolve into Kirlia until it has no Physical type moves, and it cannot evolve into Gardevoir until it has a non-Psychic, non-physical type move that isn't Shock Wave, Thief, or Torment. Nickname it "White Mage"

    lluisisern take a Torchic. This Torchic rejects that it has a mixed typing and therefore must only use moves that are Physical in Gen IV along with one support move. The list of moves it can't use is: Ember, Fire Spin, Flamethrower, Hidden Power, Overheat. It must be named: Chicken.

    Illusisern gets a Zubat named Flapper. It must hold a Cheri Berry to fight, if it loses it mid battle, it must switch out. It can evolve into Golbat whenever, but it must solo one of Watson's Pokemon to evolve into Crobat.

    Have fun.

    @illuisisern Take a poochyena.

    Your poochyena is training to be a dog for the abnormality police, so whenever you fight a ghost type pokemon, you must switch in your poochyena and it must use odor sleuth to see what their intentions are. Once that battle is over, you must use your item finder to see if the ghost left anything hanging around. If the item finder isn't fully charged, run around until it is. These restrictions still appy once he/she evolves. Call your poochyena "Sleuth."

    How's that for creative?

    EDIT: just realized that there was already 6 pokemons taken...
