    Especially because Flapper wasn't actually that hard of a challange.

    Okay, I couldn't help but notice that your username was a Homestar Runner reference. Roll a die and you get the challange corresponding to the number you get. If the challange is not applicable, select another one.

    1: Male Patrat named Homestar
    It pretends that it's Homestar Runner, so it cannot use moves that require the use of arms, hands, or teeth. It must flee from every wild battle before it evolves.

    2: Male Slowking (assuming you can get one) named Strong Bad
    It must know and keep Disable, and you must shout "DELETED!!!" every time you use it.

    3: Male Scraggy named The Cheat
    Its moveset must be as follows:
    Crunch - Yeah, man. He'll gnaw your face off.
    Hi Jump Kick - So powerful, it's almost cheating.
    Attract - Isn't he adorable?
    Taunt - Because that's what cheaters do.
    To prove that it's truly worthy of being The Cheat, it must solo Drayden.

    4: Male Elgyem named Homsar
    Since nobody really understands Homsar's speech patterns, it must use Simple Beam the instant it is sent out. As the captain of the gravy train, it must solo 5 Bakers.

    5: Golett named Videlectrx
    Moveset must be based off of Videlectrix games like so:
    Hidden Power/Thunderbolt/Charge Beam - Trogdor
    any punching move - Stinkoman
    Rollout/Rock Polish/Gyro Ball: Hall Runner
    Thief - Secret Collect

    6: Female Gothorita named Cheerleadr
    As the leading member of the Teen Girl Squad, she must be the highest level female Pokémon on the team. She must learn Flatter or Attract and use it on every male Pokémon she is sent out against. She must also learn Taunt and use it on every female Poké she is sent out against.

    This looks like a lot of fun.

    I'm accepting a WHITE challenge. No trading, no profanity, no unnecessary grinding. I also won't accept move restrictions, as well as shiny stuff (I didn't read it in the rules so i put it, just in case it isn't obvious). Please refrain from suggesting Pokémon that share type weaknesses excessively (Tyranitar and Bisharp, for example). I'm counting the second run of the Elite Four, too, do pre-GenV Pokés are allowed with restrictions. Also, no DW.

    Teandal, take Archeops, name it DTerminate. DTerminate can only attack when he is below half health. No more restrictions.

    ^LOL.

    Teandal, you found Trollcat the Purrloin, the one guy who refused to battle his SPL opponent for 3 days even though both were online. As a result of being such a delaying troll, it must evolve at LV 37, and after Skyla.

    EDIT: LOL, with DTerminate attacking at Half Health, and CrowsNest not able to attack at half health most of the time, you're screwed, Teandal. :)

    EDIT 2: someone's not holding a grudge against Lolcat... Right IceBeam? LOL

    Well, no move restrictions makes this much less fun.

    Teandal, since you said pre Gen V Pokemon are allowed, take CrowsNest, the Scyther. It is the youngest yet of a long line of Nautical Scyther (I'm adding this to my signature challenges, nautical Scythers are MINE), and as such to most naive. It still thinks Swarm is actually better than Technician. Therefore, it has to have Swarm. However, it is also quite scared. If it ever hits Yellow/Red Health, it must be healed to Green Health immediately, and can only attack when it is at Green Health (if you want, you can switch to something else).

    Seeing this, its peers criticise it for using Swarm, as it would never attack at 1/3 health anyways, the little coward. So, after you beat the 8th gym, CrowsNest grows up, and begins using moves at yellow health. However, Red Health is still a big NO-NO for attacking.

    CrowsNest, however, does like being strong, and so after looking at Smogon, always wears a choice item. Now, you can go to the Battle Subway at actually get one, but if you don't feel like it, then just act like he is always choiced (so one move only until he switches out). Tha advantage of getting a Choice Item at the subway? You get the in game boost of 1.5x Speed/Atk/SpAtk. The advatange of just pretending it's holding a choice item? You don't have to fight through the subway. Your choice. The item makes it easier, no items means a faster play through.

    Also, if you haven't noticed, since he is always holding a Choice Item (be it real or just hypothetical), he can therefore never hold Metal Coat (Pokemon cant old more than one item at a time), and thus NO SCIZOR FOR YOU!!!

    Yes, I am the meanest scrambler for a reason.

    Teandal, take whatever Pokémon you want, but it can only use Hidden Power in battle.

    @Teandal, take a Joltik named Spidey. Spidey likes shiny stuff, so it must solo every Klink, Klank, and Klinklang for their shiny steel bodies, and it must also hold a Shiny Stone at all times.

    Teandal, take a Basculin. Solo all water types not needed to be soloed by another pokemon. Also, that fish hates the supernatural so have it destroy Shauntal.

    I have five Pokémon so far: DTerminate the under-half-health Archeops (I'll use Substitute and SD until it falls under half health :D)

    Trollcat the Purrloin that can only evolve at level 37 after beating Skyla

    CrowsNest the nautical Scyther that is just plain stupid, but I love it. I also said no trading, so Scizor would be out of the question anyway... But, is it even possible to get Scyther in White, even after the main game is finished? If not, then unfortunately that won't work. Also, until then I'll need a replacement, because I won't be doing the main game with just 5 'mons.

    Spidey the shiny-loving Joltik. Can I evolve that?

    And the water-destroying fish Basculin. Boy, he's gonna be wild against Shauntals Jellicent, huh?


    ... That shit actually has acceptable synergy :P What starter should I use? I'll think that's what I'm going to replace with Scyther when the time has come.

    I wish I could "like" posts... But, is Scyther available in-game, without trading and DW?

    1. Scyther is not available pre e4 without trading.
    2. You have a 6th challenge. Yaya offered you his "signature" hidden power challenge. Then again, you did say no move restrictions, so you might have just ignored that.

    I did indeed ignore the hidden power thing. I said I counted the second run of the Elite four, so pre-Gen V mons are ok, I just don't know if it's possible to get Scyther without trading/DW. (And I'm too lazy to look it up, but I guess I will eventually.)

    It's impossible to catch Scyther in Black/White.

    Anyways, Teandal, start with Tepig, name it Boarame. This Tepig develops a grudge against N at the first encounter, & swears on his oath that he will destroy N & any Pokemon he has, meaning that Boarame must solo N at every encounter. He must also be the highest leveled Pokemon at all times as well. No restrictions on evolution.

    Have fun.

    Eh, someone can trade you a level 1 Scyther on the Wifi boards here, Teandal.

    If you're too lazy (read: cowardice) to do that, then just replace it with a Lilligant/Leavanny (whichever's in White). Restrictions are that it thinks it's a bug type with massively high attack, so it must solo all of Caitlin's Pokemon (because they're all weak to bug), and in that battle use Physical non-bug moves only (no status moves either). Other times, it may use whatever it wants. Oh, and solo either Iris or Brycen.

    Also, for the hell of it, have Leavanny/Lilligant solo an Afrobull. Actually, solo 5 of them. Call it "ReviveHerb". Oh, and no using Revives on it, EVER.

    @Teandal, alright, to make things interesting get a Darmanitan and name it Schizo. As you know, it has two personalities, however, the Psychic personality is the dominant one while the pure Fire one is a lazy bastard. Because of this, he can NEVER use any attacks with a higher BP than 70 unless he is in his Daruma Mode. Furthermore, he also cannot KO any pokes when not in Daruma mode. His movepool MUST as soon as possible include Psychic, one fire attack of less than 70 BP, Confusion (because he is confused about his identity) and a final filler of your choice. He must solo Caitlyn as well as 10 Psychic Trainers and 10 Fire-based Trainers (as well as 25 wild pokes of each type) in order to overcome his personality disorder (at which point you can do whatever you want with him).

    Note: if you take the Leavanny that has to solo Caitlyn, replace that requirement with having to solo 2 of N's pokemon at the castle (other than Klinklang and Vanilluxe), as well as having to solo 2 of Ghetsis's (1 must be his Hydreigon, the other can be anything except his Bisharp.)

    They're both in White...it's Whimsicott that's Black-exclusive...just saying. I assume that's what you meant, though.

    Sorry for being so short, I'm currently juggling several different things and don't have much patience left.

    I've decided to do a run through of Platinum. I'd like a medium challenge please. All I ask is no legendary pokemon because I'm going to RNG them later, and no trade evos because I'm unable to trade. Thanks!

    You get a Chimchar!

    This Chimchar tries to prove itself to you, soloing 2 Gym leaders while still a Chimchar. It evolves and develops a hatred of Team Galactic; so it has to solo 2 Team Galactic Admins, and the final Cyrus Battle. After that it may evolve again. It must solo Flint, and Cynthia's Garchomp.

    Nickname it Brisingr. Have Fun!!

    AlexKZ, take a no-evolution Scyther (Scyther's useful in-game even without evolving...). You may only use 1 Type of Item on it throughout the game (Like Potions, etc.), & it may only hold one type of item throughout the entire game. Whatever Item you pick, it must hold that item to fight, & it may not fight until you give it an item to hold. In addition, it may only use STAB moves in battle. Name it Lt. A1.

    Have Fun. =P
    Just giving out a challenge multiple times in a row does not result in an automatic signature challenge, besides, A1 will only be remembered for MEP's, not Scyther's that have been to the navy...

    Alex: you get Camerabot the magnemite. This mangemite has taken on the duty of filming your journey. In order to film a battle, it must Lock On to what it is shooting. It can evolve after filming 5 gym leader pokemon, and again after filming the final battle with Cyrus.
