    Updating my LeafGreen challange. I beat the first three gym leaders with no sweat, except I purposely lost to Brock to gain EXP for my Bulbasaur (so he could learn the powders). I am currently about to challenge Erika. Sorry for the brief update, I couldn't post 'cause Smogon was down.

    Rules (open)

    I can refuse any challenge.
    Nature requirements are allowed.
    Must have full team by 4th or 5th gym.
    Make it hard, but not backbreaking hard.
    I would really like an Ekans challange, I've never used one.
    Be creative!
    No giving me curses in names, or inappropriate language.
    No "highest level on team", it's annoying.


    Team with Restrictions (open)

    Bulbasaur (Nickname is Albus, will be changed upon request from Texas Cloverleaf)
    srs bisnis, take a Bulbasaur. After leaving pewter City, it may never attack unless it knows Leech Seed, Sleep Powder and Poisonpowder. If you solo Koga with it, you may drop one of the powders for another move. -Texas Cloverleaf

    Meowth (NNed PussInLoot)

    srs bisnis you get a meowth. This meowth thinks himself as the biggest hoarder in the world. To prove this you must solo every Dragon type with it because he can't have dragons getting bigger piles of loot than him. to evolve into Persian he must have picked up 3 nuggets and picked up 5000 pokedollars from using Pay Day. Name it PussInLoot. -pimpgangster

    Variable Pokemon
    Srs Bisnis, lucky you, you get a Variable Pokemon.

    Catch the first Pokemon you encounter on Route 8.
    If it's a Pidgey, then it must know & keep Quick Attack & Wing Attack.
    If it's a Meowth, then it must know & keep Pay Day & Faint Attack.
    If it's a Sandshrew, then it must know & keep Swift & Poison Sting.
    If it's a Vulpix, then it must know & keep Confuse Ray & Flamethrower.

    Then you check its nature.
    If it's Male, then it must know & keep Frustration.
    If it's Female, then it must know & keep Return.

    Finally, your Pokemon's last move must be a HM Move of your choice.

    Next, check the next Pokemon you encounter.
    If it's a Pidgey, then it must solo Erika.
    If it's a Meowth, then it must solo Sabrina.
    If it's a Sandshrew, then it must solo Blaine.
    If it's a Vulpix, then it must Giovanni.

    Lastly, you must name it either Random or ItsARandom.
    If you name it Random, then it must solo 30 Trained Pokemon from the moment you get it until you get your 6th Badge, without the Vs. Seeker.
    If you name it ItsARandom, then it must solo 30 Trained Pokemon from the moment you get your 6th Badge until you get your 8th Badge, without the Vs. Seeker.

    Have fun.

    EDIT: What my location says concerning Meowth...You can disregard the catch Meowth part. -Its A Random

    Ekans (NNed SolidSnake)
    Srs Bisnis, you want an Ekans, so you can have one. Name it SolidSnake. Snake's a stealthy guy, not one who's simply going to attack full on, so he can't have any attacking moves, except Dig since going underground is stealthy. He must know at least one move to help him avoid taking damage at all; choose from Protect, Double Team, and Substitute.

    Defeat one E4 Pokemon of your choice by making it Struggle to death, never attacking it directly or statusing it. You may want Spite for this, obtained by its father being a Dunsparce with the move. If so, said Dunsparce has to be named Big Boss. -cantab

    Slowpoke (Nicknamed Green Day)
    @Srs Bisnis: I'm giving you a GDS. (First, let me find the challenge and edit it slightly...)

    EDIT: You get a slightly altered GDS (Green Day Slowpoke).

    Slowpoke is the epitome of Americans, as it is lazy, slow, and rather unintelligent. Its final moveset must be:

    Laziness: Rest / Slack Off
    Slowness: Yawn / Rain Dance (because rain is depressing to Americans)
    Fatness: Substitute / Light Screen (TV, get it? hahaha)
    Stupidity: Amnesia / Attract (because the only Americans who consistently attract other people are on street corners)

    You may have noticed that this entire movepool consists of status moves. Now, as much as Americans care about status, they care more about power. As such, you may replace one move up there for every three Gym Trainers Slowpoke solos. However, every new move you use must have 120 or higher base power (including STAB), and it may not apply this cop-out until it knows (simultaneously) one move each from two of the above categories. It may not evolve until it has learned one move from each category at some point. Name it Green Day. -Dummy007

    Rattata (NNed Top Percent)
    SRS still needs one more.

    TopPercent the Rattata. Being in the top percentage of Rattata, it is so epic that it can only use physical attacks(considered physical as of gen 4). It cannot evolve into Raticate, and must solo all other Rattatas/Raticates, and solo Blaine as well. -TM13IceBeam

    OK, doomvendingmachine, take Oldie the male Blitzle. He is old, so can't use too much energy, so he has a capped level before each gym. He has to be a lower level than the next Gym Leader's main pokemon at all times. And, to prove a point, he still must solo one of each Gym Leader's Pokemon. And shockingly, after Clay, he can only use damaging moves.

    So, in my XD Scramble, I'm about to face Snattle... With two Pokémon... Both of which are weak to water... And he's packing Quagsire and Lanturn, IIRC... FUCK.

    That said, Flareon is performing admirably, even without STAB - Bite is sufficient for now, and Quick Attack is love. As for Baltoy? Dude is a beast - gets an Ancientpower boost like every fight, or trolls with Mud Slap. And neither of them die, at all. Both are at level 36... Any strategies for Snattle? I want my 3rd party member (Lunatone under Taunt and Torment!)

    Evolve Baltoy (I think it evolves at Level 37, maybe 38). Teach it Hyper Beam if you want.

    Uh, I got ignored basically, and the I got 1 good pokemon, and another complicated one. I'm requesting again, but here's an outline.

    I must use Trpig as my starter. No rediculous ones like that Maractus one by vratix, or the one by doom. THough I'm accepting gladiators one with venipede. 5 more please

    StardustGD, take a Golett, name it Lurk More. This Golett likes to lurk before he leaps, & therefore, it must know & keep a non-attacking move at all times, & it must use that move every time it enters the battlefield as its first action in a Trainer battle. It must solo 20 Trained Pokemon to evolve.

    Have fun.

    I can refuse challenges. Basically, if you use common sense when issuing a challenge, I'll probably accept it.
    No profane nicknames.
    Oh and nothing that requires a glitch to get.
    Last and most important:: Be creative!
    I think that covers all the ground rules. What craziness will my team end up being?

    ZeroTarken, take a Hitmonchan, name it Puncher. This guy likes to Punch, so he may only use moves with Punch in its name in battle. It must solo a minimum 40 Trained Pokemon in the game, & just to spice things up, you can only use 10 items on Puncher (Like Potions, revives, etc.) throughout the game.

    Have fun.

    ZeroTarken, take a Charmander, name it IPwnBrock. Seeking to disprove the fact that it fails against Brock, it must solo him as a Charmander. To evolve into Charmeleon it must solo 5 mountaineers/hikers/whatever they're called. To evolve into Charizard it must solo 5 more.

    Probably my best bet, yeah. And it's 36. The raw power of Hyper Beam would probably get me the last two solos he needs too...

    @Zetotarken: Take an Electabuzz. This Electabuzz is the heir to a powerful family of Alakazams, but is actually a half breed between Electabuzz, and Kadabra. As such, he is a total outcast from both sides, and so, must solo EVERY Electric and Psychic Pokémon you come across from the point you capture him - including Zapdos, who you must solo as well, in his quest for acceptance.

    Electabuzz seeks to use his strange powers as often as he can, so he must always have Psychic, Reflect/Light Screen and Teleport (Teleport is TM 30 in Gen 1, found on Route 9), in addition to the move of your choice. Nickname him "Outcast".

    @ZetoTarken: Take a Koffing named Materialst. He really is a materialist, so you must do all four of the following: 1) teach him 3 TMs and keep tham all until you beat the game, 2) use a health-restoring item on him any time his HP falls below half, 3) use an Ether or Elixir on him any time one of his moves drops below 3/4 of its max PP, and 4) solo every Cooltrainer you come across after catching him, since he wants to be cool like them. To evolve into Weezing, he must learn two of the three required TM moves. All restrictions still apply after evolution.

    Mono-Ground Cubone. Name it MGC. Must solo Koga, or else solo all of his lackeys without using any items during/in-between battles. If it comes with a Thick Club, it must further prove it's awesomeness by soloing Cinnabar Gym. Cannot attack Ghost-types, because it is good friends with ghosts.

    Have fun.

    Tarken, take a Pikachu. It may only know one attacking move, and it must not be Thunderbolt. Solo Lt. Surge to evolve. Nickname it "Gen 0".

    And yes, this works, since you can only catch Electabuzz in the Power Plant iirc.

    Thank you everyone. Don't expect any updates or challanges from me for the next two weeks though. I'm going AWOL the metaphorical fan stops spreading its mess all over my real life.

    Nice. Had one of these in my Scramblocke and it died almost instantly, so I'm really pleased to get this now. 7.5/10
    2.
    Good challenge for an otherwise ugly pokemon. It is the only starter I have yet to use so let's see how it goes. 6/10
    3.
    I like. I like it a lot. Poison is great in this game. I anticipate some face melting. 7/10
    4.
    A great nerf for a good Pokemon. Looking forward to this too. 7.5/10
    5.
    Star Wars. Win. 8.25/10
    6.
    And someone gave me a hard one. This will test my patience I am certain. Anticipated LVP (no offense to RitterCat, for all I know he did this on purpose). A note: every time it faints I am not going to revive it to go and faint again, but I will Revive it at the end of each battle it faints during. 6/10

    Vratix, you get a Venipede. It must have poison point as it's ability. It may not use any moves besides direct attacking moves until the opponent is poisoned by venipede. Additionally, until the opponent is poisoned by venipede it may only use moves that have a chance to poison. Name it "Venom".

    You get Lillipup. Name him "Underdog" and as such he may only battle if he is at a lower level than the opposing Pokemon. Furthermore, being an underdog he isn't very scary, and therefore cannot have the ability intimidate. He may only evolve after soloing Arty. Lastly, he hates cats, and so every time you see a Purloin/Liepard, you must switch him in immediately and kill it (level difference doesn't matter here). If he faints against one he must forget the last move he used and can never be able to use it again. Have fun.

    @vratix: You get a Tympole. I'll edit in restrictions after I get back from helping a lady move.

    EDIT: You get Padawan the male Tympole, the first one you see. It's a Jedi Knight in training, so it must harness the Force by only ever knowing one attacking move (as a Tympole). It must attack (but not KO; Jedi don't kill) fifty Pokemon to be eligible for evolution. Now is where things get tricky (I hope this doesn't count as variable): Apply Section A if your Tympole was not holding a Persim Berry when you caught it. Apply Section B if it was.

    A: Your Tympole did not avoid the confusion of puberty and gave in to the Dark Side! It must evolve into Palpitoad as soon as you get the manditory 50 semi-solos. Now rename it Emperor. Looks like you just trained Emperor Palpitoad in the ways of the Force; but now you have a Sith on your hands! Replace two status moves of his with attacks ASAP. He may never know more than one status move as a Palpitoad. Emperor Palpitoad must solo (KO/kill) 200 additional Pokemon in order to evolve into Seismitoad. If he evolves, rename him Sith Lord. He must now solo every Pokemon he is sent into battle against (this includes double and triple battles). You must also replace his remaining status move with Force Lightning (Hydro Pump), and he may never know a status move again. Also, solo two E4 members with him.

    B: Congrats! Your padawan avoided confusion, and now you have a Jedi. To avoid being Palpitoad, you may not evolve Tympole until Level 35. You must evolve it again in one level. Rename it Yoda. Yoda must keep two status moves in his moveset at all times, but otherwise there are no restrictions. Except one. He must solo the true Master of the Sith: Ghetsis.
