    Tweedy, I believe the term you're looking for is "Scramblocke".

    Anyways, your mon. Take a Torkoal. It can only learn level-up moves of different types. Name it Turtle.

    Have fun.

    WEAKNESS TO GROUND? THAT IS MUTHAf&@%@*(G UNACCEPTABLE.

    To make up for this weakness to ground you get Floater the ground-resist Vigoroth.
    Wait-a-minute... That his Ali-style boxing and not his typing at all...
    Oh Well.

    He may not evolve into Vigoroth until it KOs 5 pokemon by stinging them like a bee with Aerial Ace.
    As a Vigoroth he must poison 10 trainer Pokemon with Toxic because he thinks he is a killer bee. If he fails to do this you may not use him in the elite 4.
    Do not evolve Floater into a Slaking.

    @Tweedy: take Plaything the Baltoy. Since it is so proud to resist the EdgeQuake combo, it must have moves that are super effective on each of those types to be used in battle. Solo Winona to prove that levitating is better than flying.

    You get Shd the Psyduck. It may only use HMs in battle. It must solo one Gym Leader of your choice to evolve. Additionally, as a Golduck it must solo Bruno.

    Is anyone aware that I still need 3 entries for my very hard (no endless grinding) Diamond Scramble?

    @Pwnemon You get Darkness the Murkrow. It may only be used at night, and have 2 Dark type moves, 1 Flying type move, and 1 other move. Solo Wake to evolve. As a Honchkrow, it decides that stalling opponents out is the way to win. it may now only know 1 attacking move. Rename it Stallkrow.

    @Piemonade You get Torchure the Cyndaquil. It must only know fire type moves ASAP. Solo Bugsy to evolve into Quilava and 2 Rocket Executives at the Radio Tower to evolve into Typhlosion.

    @Piemonade. You must catch a Hoothoot and name it Fred. Fred the Hoot-Hoot must be exactly four levels higher than your starter at all times (of course, when you initially catch it, it won't be). Fred, however, thinks he is a Woobat. Accordingly, he can only know Flying/Psychic attacks. He may never leave your party. Evolve after the fifth gym.

    Tweedy, your starter will be Meme the Mudkip! It must evolve after the fight against Brawly and must learn Earthquake as a Marshtomp, but must be a Swampert by the time you fight the Elite Four, unless Meme faints beforehand.

    @Pwnemon: You get Tithe the Bronzor. Upon arriving at a town, you must spend about a tenth of your current money at the Pokémart. It can evolve when at least 77,777 Pokédollars are spent. When it evolves, name it Church and the above restrictions are void. It claims that it can spread the word of God through changing the weather, so it must start every battle with Sunny Day or Rain Dance. It cannot be sent out against Lucian and it must solo every Cyrus battle.

    @Piemonade: You get Positate the Geodude. In its NFE form, it absolutely sucks, so it cannot use any move over base 50 power. However, once it survives an attack from Jasmine's Steelix, it feels so much more confident and can evolve. Now, it can use any move of up to 75 BP. It must solo Pryce to evolve into Golem. Once it is fully evolved, it can use any move.

    @Piemonade: Your Scramblocke team right now is pretty balanced typewise. We need to fix that, so you get Redundancy the male Togepi. He may only learn a move if one of your other Pokemon already knows it. When he evolves into Togetic after soloing a Pokemon owned by a Gym Leader, rename him New Fred. He may now know one move of your choice, but his other three moves must be either Psychic- or Flying-typed moves Noctowl can learn since he's the new Fred. After soloing another two Gym Leader-owned Pokemon, you may evolve him into Fred 2.0 the Togekiss. He may now replace one of his Psychic or Flying moves with a move of any other type. He must solo another three Gym Leader-owned Pokemon or you cannot use him against the Elite Four.

    I have:

    -Flightless the Piplup - solo every Flying type it encounters, use a STAB move on every Levitator it encounters (not necessarily solo), always know at least one Flying type move. Optional: Flightless may only know 1 TM move
    (1 empty move slot is impossible to manage)

    -Airballoon the Drifloon - must have Unburden as the ability.
    1) It must solo two out of these three gym leaders: Maylene, Fantina and Candice. When battling the gym leader, it may not attack until its ability is triggered.
    2) Must switch in Drifloon whenever a ground attack is used.
    3) Can evolve after triggering unburden 30 times.
    4) May not use STAB attacks as a Drifloon.
    5) May have one STAB attack at a time as Drifblim
    6) If burned 10 times, can use both STABs.
    7) Must solo one of the Elite Four, and take out Cynthia's Spiritomb. During these battles, Airballoon may only attack once Unburden is triggered.

    -Darkness the Murkrow - May only be used at night and must have 2 Dark type moves, 1 Flying type move, and 1 other move. Solo Wake to evolve. As a Honchkrow, it may now only know 1 attacking move. Rename it Stallkrow.

    -Tithe the Bronzor - Upon arriving at a town, I must spend about a tenth of my current money at the Pokémart. It can evolve when at least 77,777 Pokédollars are spent.

    Pwnemon, i havent played 4th gen too much yet, but ill help you out.

    Meet: BusyBody the Buizil (the Floatzel pre-evo)
    BusyBody has ADHD. she doesnt listen or take **** from anybody. in fact, she also has anger management issues. what a charming young lady, right?

    BusyBody likes eating oran berries. so you must always equip her with an oran berry. should she lose she berry, she may only use the movefrustration until an oran berry is given to her.

    Also, she wants lots and lots of kids. you must breed 15 buizel. after this is accomplished; you may pick one of her offspring and use that instead; with no restrictions other than the offspring must only contain stab moves. should the offspring die, you may not use the mother floatzel/offspring at all. because they are too busy mourning. if you continue to use the mama, same restriction apply.

    Benny; you get MINEFIELD the geodude. Should it take a physical hit, it must explode on the next turn. :) if it doesnt have self-destruct / explode, it may not use a physical move until it does. only special moves/support moves until explosion.

    Geodude learns self-destruct at level 21, and explosion at level 41. as a graveler, it learns explosion at level 53, and as a Golem, it learns explosion at level 53.

    Have fun, and try not to go revive-broke!

    @Pwnemon: You get Rex the male Bidoof. Rex is a king among Bidoof and Bibarel. He may only know the most powerful moves you can teach him at any moment (factoring in STAB), but can only learn two moves of a single type (when possible). He cannot learn Focus Punch or Dark-type moves. His final movepool must consist of any of the following: Hyper Beam, Giga Impact, Return, Surf, Superpower, Blizzard, Thunder, Iron Tail, and Waterfall. He must have two physical moves and two Special moves, and at least one non-STAB move, because he must be diverse. If he comes in after a Pokemon has fainted in a battle not restricted onto another Pokemon, he must solo that entire enemy (all Trainer Pokemon) until he faints. He cannot switch out of battle. He must destroy evil - solo ten Dark-types to accomplish this. He cannot be the highest or lowest-leveled Pokemon in your party, and must see regular use. He must hold Metal Coat or King's Rock whenever possible. Not too bad yet - but here's the catch. You cannot use items on him during a battle battle, and you can never use more than three items on him between battles, because he has to defend his subjects and will do so to the death, and can only recover for short amounts of time. You cannot catch any other Bidoof or Bibarel for any reason, as they can be seen as a threat to his authority.

    Have fun.

    @ Tweedy: Baltoy also learns ground moves and IceBeam, so that could work, since you can't get solarbeam until the Safari Zone.

    Pokémon (open)
    DinoPowah the Rampardos (M)
    Lv.100 Brave nature
    Stats: 354/424/145/167/122/167
    - Surf
    - Rock Tomb (PP Up'd x2)
    - Screech
    - Thunderbolt

    MVP and LVP, for reasons I needn't explain. This challange was a pain until DinoPowah evolved, at which point Headbutt spamming, my only strategy, was much more effective. I was excited and depressed at the same time when I got Surf. When I got Payback, things went uphill. Then, they went downhill when I got Thunderbolt due to the snowy trees. When I got Rock Tomb, DinoPowah became a killing machine. Nothing stood in its way save for Garchomp. Thank you for the fun and interesting challange, Skwog.


    And the HM slaves, with their own awards:

    Bibarel is the LVP. Due to DinoPowah having Surf, it couldn't do much until late-game.
    Ambipom is the median. Picked up items, but only had two HMs.
    Farfetch'd is the MVP. Fly is such a time-saver.

    Times fainted: 17 (five times against Roark, seven times against Gardenia, twice against Maylene's lackeys, twice against Maylene, once against Candice)

    I have no idea if I'm doing this right, but I assume you make something up that sounds crazy enough to work.

    You must capture Candle the Litwick on Celestial Tower 3F. She must be female, and be caught at level 27, with a Heal Ball, and an empty spot in your party. She is too weak to carry an exp share, or use physical moves. So you must train her, ensuring she is always at least the same level as your starter, as she hates not having attention. To be able to evolve Candle to a Lampent, you must either have Flame Body or Flash Fire activate 3 times. That way, she will be confident enough that she is ready for evolution. Finally, she is terrified of water, and will absolutely not face a water-type pokemon. You must defeat one of Brycen's pokemon with Candle, using no more than Ghost-type moves (fire melts the ice into water). After that, she will have overcome her aquaphobia, and be able to evolve into a Chandelure, but only if she knows Sunny Day, just in case a water type move wants to spoil her day.

    Optional: She will settle down with a nice male Gardevoir, from Ruby, and have 3 eggs. This unlocks her ability to use physical moves.

    Also, her lifelong goal is to defeat Shauntal's Chandelure, who was mean to her in preschool. Defeat it with only Candle, and she will love you forever, and no longer need so much attention, meaning you can let her fall behind your starter in level. This is also optional, by the way.
