    I have officially given up on my scramble on SoulSilver.
    It was just so...IMPOSSIBLY HARD.
    I gave up after Sheen took all my X Items and my drugs...f*** that beedrill.

    My diamond scramble is just amazing, I am up to the elite four, and somehow my Mr. Mime is more useful than I thought it was.

    So...
    This next scramble will be coming to you...I will give you the details now!

    Game: Black
    Difficulty: Medium
    Trading: Yeeeeerp, but I don't want to have to go from Gen III/IV to get egg/tutor moves for a pokemon.
    Extra Details: One Steel, and no electrics, no starters

    List of pokemon I don't want: Accelgor, Darmanitan, Simisage, Unfezant, Sawk. (OR VULLABY)

    Also, I'd prefer if you use ORIGINAL ideas, and don't use ones you have already used for someone else.

    Hmm, this one may be too difficult, but...
    Catch a Vullaby before Victory Road, name it Fettered. Fettered has been abused by humans who terrible Pokeball tests on it, and as such hates humans and does not want to battle pokemon. It wants to take revenge on humans, but the tests have given it bad eyesight, so it thinks that all pokemon who are humanlike are humans and will only battle them. It must solo all pokemon in the Human-like breeding group, and is not allowed to fight any other pokemon.

    Craaap, I was hoping no-one would say vullaby...
    Is it okay if you...do a different one...because there are like no human-like mons around that area.

    Piemonade, if you have access to it, start with a Zorua, name it Shorro. From the moment you get your 2nd Scramblemon onwards, whenever it's Illusion is broken, it must switch out immediately, unless it's the last Scramblemon alive. In addition, it may only learn Level-Up moves.

    If you don't, take a Heatmor, name it Eatame. It must solo 1 Pokemon from each E4 member, 2 of N's Pokemon, & 2 of Ghestis' Pokemon. You may not trade for it.

    Have fun either way.

    That's all for now. Next Update after Iris. Until then...

    Piemonade, if you can trade, take Starboard, the Scyther. Evolve it to Scizor as soon as you get it (it'll evolve when it arrives, trade it in holding Metal Coat, at under level 10). This counts as your steel.

    Starboard, unlike cousin Portcullis, does allow the use of an item, but still only one. And therein lies the problem. You may choose one held item (eg. Leftovers), and one other consumable item (eg. Super potion). Starboard may hold the held item throughout the game, as soon as you get it, but may never hold anything else. In addition, it may never fight without that held item, as soon as you get it. The other, consumable item, is the strategic part. If you choose Potion, then you can access it right away. But later on, you'll regret the fact you can't use Hyper Potions on it in battle. If you choose something like Hyper Potion, great, but you'll have to wait a hell of a long time to have access to it, so early game Starboard will have to survive without items.

    In case that makes no sense, here's an example: let's say you choose (hypothetically) EXP.Share as your held item, and Super Potion as your consumable item. Starboard, from the moment when you first get the EXP.Share, must always hold that. So, Starboard will grow like crazy, but everything else on your team will grow slower due to Starboard siphoning off EXP. Also, at the start, you won't be able to heal Starboard with items as the Super Potion isn't available yet. And when you get to the E4, where you'll be taking >100 damage per hit, and might even faint, you won't be able to use your beloved Hyper Potions or Revives. (Note: if your held item is consumable, eg. Cheri Berry, then it may never fight while it's held item is gone)

    Oh, and Starboard is a Technician, and hence can only use moves with GREATER THAN 40 Base Power. So that means no Bullet Punch for you!

    Um, i believe you said you could trade, so i was thinking you could get a Metal Coat in another game.

    Anyways, use this link as a last resort: Pokémon Selector

    In fact, that might be useful for anyone attempting solo challenges, or those who can't trade. I know Smogon doesn't endorse hacking, but as a last resort, it's there.

    EDIT: Available in Twist Mountain, according to Bulbapedia.

    This seems like a really interesting challenge. I think I'll try this with my FireRed, but I wont have access to trading, but anything else is fine.

    @TalkingLion, take an Oddish named Toxin. It must know and keep Acid and at least one status move, and it cannot evolve to Vileplume until it solos 2 Gym Leader Pokemon by only using Acid (The 2 Pokemon do not have to be from the same gym). Also, solo Giovanni once.

    Piemonnade, here's what you can level up with:
    Route 9 Gothrita and Bisharp
    Twist mountain Gurrdurr
    Victory road Sawk/Throh

    And here's what you have to solo:
    All of Marshall's pokemon
    Catalin's Gothielle and Beheeyem
    Grimsley's Bisharp
    Ghetsis's Bisharp

    I said it was difficult. If you really don't want to use Vullaby, you can use something else, but it has to follow all of the same requirements. Still call it Fettered.

    Talking Lion: You get an Growlithe named Kimba. Kimba can talk, and enjoys Roaring at his opponents, so every time he fights something he must roar it away and fight something else instead. He may never learn any moves that would hinder his talking by using his mouth, (Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Bite, Ember). Can evolve after soloing Sabrina.

    You get SleeshGuys the Bulbasaur because your first few challanges suck. badly.
    You may only use bulbasaur against Either Brock or Misty but not both.
    You may only use bulbasaur against Giovanni in one of the 3 encounters.
    No evolution restrictions.

    You get an Ekans!

    It can only use moves that have been used by Jesse's Arbok, and cannot fight any Team Rocket members. Nickname it Kobra.

    @Piemonade

    You get a Yamask!

    This Yamask was killed by Ghetsis when he realized Team Plasma's real goals. It must be caught on your first time through the desert, and must solo at least one of N's Pokemon in every encounter to try and get through to him about Ghetsis. Nickname it Mask.

    In that case, take the shadow Butterfree. You can use any moves you like, with the exceptions of Sleep Powder and Stun Spore. Solo 3 Admin Pokémon. But you cannot purify Butterfree until you defeat Lovrina on Citadark Isle.

    So it looks like my team is:

    Tauros(#31): Can only use status moves, as long as it is not Toxic. (yaya0)
    Oddish(Toxin): Must know and keep Acid along with at least 1 other status move. Cannot evolve into Vileplume until it solos 2 Gym Leader Pokemon by only using Acid. (The 2 Pokemon do not have to be from the same Gym). (auramaster)
    Growlithe(Kimba): Must use Roar at the start of every battle. Cannot use any move that uses it's mouth (Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Bite, Ember). Can evolve after soloing Sabrina. (Bob Squob)
    Zubat(Flapsuck): Cannot evolve or hold any berry. Must solo Karate King and Bruno, with usage of Revives. (bwburke94)
    Bulbasaur(SleeshGuys): Cannot use it against Brock and Misty, Only against 1 of them. Can only use it against Giovani in 1 of the 3 encounters. (Vratix)
    Ekans(Kobra): Can only use moves that have been used by Jessie's Arbok (Dig, Wrap, Acid, Bite, Glare, Poison Sting, Toxic and Double-Edge). Cannot fight any Team Rocket Members.

    I noticed that 4 of my guys are weak to Psychic, which could be a HUGE problem when I get to Saffron. I also noticed that I have no Surf users (other than Tauros, who cant use it). Am I allowed to teach Tauros Surf, but not use it? Also, is Overheat considered a mouth move for Kimba?

    4 Poison types, that's gonna be tough O_o You can teach Tauros Surf and never use it, or catch a non-Scramble Pokemon and teach it Surf, but never use it in battle. And yes, Overheat is a mouth move.

    Surf is allowed on Tauros. It cannot use it in battle, which is the standard definition of "use" in this challenge.
