    From what I'm finding, entry hazards are being more of a pain and two attacking slots on Scoliopede is helping a bit... but I'll give that a try soon!

    @MelodyRae91, take Victory the Oddish. It doesn't like to lose so if its health goes red, it must switch out or be healed immediately. It is an offensive Pokemon so it is always under the effect of Taunt. It can evolve if it solos 10 trainers. It may evolve again if it solos a Gym Leader. Good luck!

    Update time!!! GODCHU swept Falkner's team with Volt Tackle and learned Quick Attack in the process. I just caught TucknRoll and have to train it to level 21 so it can solo Whitney later. Blossom has yet to learn Natural Gift. BunBun only has Drain Punch and Foresight of it's final moveset. Scyther and Dratini are all that is left. I got to go study for tomorrow's art test. See you guys later:)

    Well, I guess I'll try one last time to give you a 'mon melody. You get Peck the Murkrow. Peck must know and use Peck every time Peck enters into battle. Peck is always under the effects of Taunt and Torment. Also, you can disregard Krow entirely if you'd like. KO 10 pokemon with Peck to evolve.

    Okay, I already read the rules, but just to make things clear, if one of my Pokemon faints, what do I do with it? Release it or just go back to the Pokemon Center and heal it all up like if I´m playing normally? I kinda got the rules messed up between this and the Nuzlockes.
    And what´s the best emulator to play this on?

    If it's not a Nuzlocke, a fainted team member does NOT retire from the team; just heal it at the Poke-Center and it'll be good as new. The Scramble I'm doing right now is a Nuzlocke-type Scramble (called a "Scramblocke"). Yours is definitely NOT a Scramblocke. Read the OP.

    Do any of you want me to keep Gym-wide updates? Like, as I complete a Gym, give you an update? Just started it because a thunderstorm knocked my power out, so..

    Also, not sure who suggested Totodile, I think it was Jimera, but, it was a female. Is it cool that I named it Lara instead of Larson?

    ALSO, I want an even harder challenge when I'm done this.. So I want this one on Soul Silver, but this time, I'll take the FIRST 6 suggestions, as long as five are the 5 balencing types [Water, Fire, Electric, Grass and Flying, the sixth can be whatever, but five must be those 4. Unless someone suggests a double-type, also aren't mega confusing [I have a blone hair, sue me. <<], and they're not:

    Hoppip

    Chikorita

    Any Pokemon that can't be found until Kanto

    Or any other Pokemon I know I hate, but have neglected to mention. [I'll say if it's rejected or not.]

    Other than that, go nuts!

    @MelodyRae, prepare thyself.

    Take a Cyndaquil, name it Chikorita. Guess who it thinks it is?
    It may not use any moves that Chikorita cannot also use. GL.










    Ohh, you don't like that one? Fine then.
    Take a male Weedle, NN Sheen. It thinks that it's a totally rockin' Vatican Assassin from Mars, and is God's gift to women. No restrictions on evolution to Kakuna, but in order to evolve into Beedrill, it must solo 10 Female pokemon in a row after using Harden, then String Shot. If its flow is interrupted by a Male pokemon, it must start again (Genderless pokemon will be taken as a free pass, neither counting towards the 10 total nor stopping it).

    Take your pick. =]

    Melody, fish, yes fish, for King George the Tentacool. If Liquid ooze, combined move power may not exceed 120. If Clear Body, must solo Whitney's Miltank, Chuck's Primape, Bruno's Hitmonchan, and Lance's Gyrados. Have fun.

    Anyways, take A MOTHER<snip>ING BELLSPROUT. THATS RIGHT A MOTHER<snip>ING BELLSPROUT. ITS SO BADASS THAT EVERYONE CALLS IT BADASS. ITS SO AWESOME, IT COULD TOTALLY SOLO THAT NORMAL TYPE GYM LEADER AND EVOLVE RIGHT AFTERWARDS. DUDE, IT COULD DO THE SAME THING FOR THE ICE GYM LEADER TOO, AM I RIGHT BRO? OH YEAH, AND THERE'S NO NEED FOR IT TO USE NON ATTACKING MOVES, BECAUSE ITS

    Time for another challange! Since Brazilian Guy was unable to use my Smeargle, I've chosen to test that one. Never give a challange you wouldn't do yourself, right? So, next to Smeargle I'll be taking 5 additional mons.

    - Platinum Scramble
    - Trading: Choose ANY pokemon
    - Well, except Wooper/Rattata/Ledian/Jynx/Machop since I just used them.
    - Instead of 'first-come-first-serve', I'll choose the most original challanges given within reasonable time. You may reserve a pokemon.

    To be editted:

    The challanges: (open)

    First four gyms (open)

    So I've completed the first four gyms. So far the greatest challange has been Gardenia who was really hard to solo with a level 20 Bidoof. I had one X-SpD to save me, got killed by crit-hax many times and had to rely on confusion to win. I guess I could have grinded but that would be too easy.

    The team:
    [​IMG]
    Flightless (Empoleon) - Level 37
    Nature: Calm, Ability: Torrent
    - Bide
    - Aerial Ace
    - Brine
    - Aqua Jet
    Status: Best pokemon on the team. He solo'd 5 trainers using bide + super potions and solo'd the entire Veilstone gym with Bide. The mandatory use of Peck when down to the red isn't that bad at first and now that he has Aerial Ace it's gotten a lot more managable.
    [​IMG]
    DaVinci (Smeargle) - Level 39
    Nature: Hasty, Ability: Technician
    - Headbutt
    - Razor Leaf
    - Will-O-Wisp
    - Force Palm
    Status: In a way I still got the first gym. Fred used Growl as a substitute for Sketch, and DaVinci was able to copy Headbutt in a double battle on his way to Eterna City. Later on he sketched Gardenia's Razor Leaf, Fantina's Will-O-Wisp and Maylene's Force Palm. Using a Power Bracer I got him to maximise attack. Technician plus coverage makes Razor Leaf and Force Palm pretty good. Will-O-Wisp is really awesome. It helps out his frail defense and wears the foe down. The flinch-chance and STAB on Headbutt is pretty much exceding my expectations; I'm keeping it all the way with Will-O-Wisp.
    [​IMG]
    Fred (Bibarel) - Level 31
    Nature: Adamant, Ability: Unaware
    - Headbutt
    - Swagger
    - Yawn
    - Rock Smash
    Status: I dubbed him 'Fred' to have real nickname. Overall Unaware + Swagger is cool, until Fred dies and the entire team is swept: That damned Skuntank got the crit hax and swept me twice! He also completed his solo as a lvl 20 Bidoof. Gardenia is quite a boss. Using an X-Att, I confused her first two 'mons and went straight for the Headbutt hoping for the hax. Her Cherrim was the most dreaded as a Flower Gift Magical Leaf would KO me regardless, and Leech Seed would require me to heal each turn costing me the match. The only solution was to hope for the confusion and Headbutt straight for the KO. Eventually I got the confusion with the X-att securing the 2HKO. Next up: the Roserade. The only way to beat it was to switch in a heal-fodder to get rid of Leech Seed, apply an X-SpD to live two Magical Leafs (at one HP, lucky me) and prey that headbutt gives me a enough power to win: He lived with one hp left to score the KO with headbutt! Bidoof is such a Boss ;)
    [​IMG]
    PuffDaddy (Jigglypuff) - Level 36
    Nature: Mild, Ability: Cute Charm
    - Disable
    - Gyro Ball
    - Roll Out
    - Body Slam
    Status: Spamming Body Slam/Roll Out works great. It's high level due to the constant solo's makes it a powerhouse on the team. Disable trolls the opponent and helps Smeargle get in during the gym-battles. About half of the type-solo's are complete. Fire is proving to be difficult, as three subsequent Ponyta's got a flinch/crit hax on me or the burn with Flamewheel. I decided to only count trainer owned pokemon for this challange. As there was no nick given, I had to improv a name.
    [​IMG]
    Abe (Togepi) - Level 34
    Nature: Gentle, Ability: Serene Grace
    - Charm
    - Yawn
    - Metronome
    - Wish
    Status: PP-upped the metronome and gave it the exp share for a while. It is an ulimate troll with Sweet Kiss/Encore/Yawn/Charm in it's arsenal. After about 300 metronome's i've had only 4 of 12 and get really frustrated with stuff like Memento and Selfdestruct. Seriously: I've had it die 5 times already due to that damned Memento. What's more frustrating is that it won't select any of the mandatory moves (It hasn't since Hearthome!).
    [​IMG]
    Mare (Marill) - Level 21
    I already caught this guy, but am a bit confused about the challange: I'm assuming Horse = Ponyta/Rapidash (or did you mean Girafarig/Stantler and the likes of them?) I'm also assuming Chuck = Wake. And that you really mean that he can't learn Tackle and Tail Whip because Ponyta can learn it..*
    *Mare can't use: Tackle, Tail Whip, Attract, Captivate, Double Team, Facade, Frustration, Iron Tail, Natural Gift, Hidden Power, Protect, Rest, Return, Secret Power, Sleep Talk, Strength, Substitute, Toxic


    Fifth and Sixth Gym until Snowpoint (open)

    Right before facing Candice; will delete Waterfall to make room for another Sketch.

    The team:
    [​IMG]
    Flightless (Empoleon) - Level 42
    Nature: Calm, Ability: Torrent
    - Bide
    - Aerial Ace
    - Surf
    - Aqua Jet
    Status: He's been benched for a while, to give the rest of the team a chance to catch up. With Surf he's back on the team, Ko-ing stuff with surf. I'm keeping Bide for cool points. Still needs to solo Bertha.
    [​IMG]
    DaVinci (Smeargle) - Level 60
    Nature: Hasty, Ability: Technician
    - Headbutt
    - Waterfall
    - Will-O-Wisp
    - Earthquake
    Status: He's pretty awesome with Will-O-Wisp and scoring a bit of flinch-hax. His mandatory high level makes him an absolute staple on the team, often preventing me from being swept by rampant Electric and Fighting types. He solo'd Crasher Wake while stealing Waterfall from his Gyarados. One X-def + Burn was enough to seriously stall out his team. Even at -1 Att he simply flinch-haxed Headbutt to make up for things. I didn't even miss razor leaf (allthough it might have saved a few Moomoo Milks). Oh yeah, he appeared shortly versus Byron's Steelix to nab the ever awesome Earthquake. Grinded him in Iron Island to get him to re-learn Sketch.
    [​IMG]
    Fred (Bibarel) - Level 43
    Nature: Adamant, Ability: Unaware
    - Headbutt
    - Swagger
    - Yawn
    - Rock Smash
    Status: He needs Waterfall; I'm fed up with Rock Smash. Headbutt is cool. After a few Swagger miscalculations (where he died and I got swept by +4/+6 physical attackers), I decided to keep Yawn as a fail-save.
    [​IMG]
    PuffDaddy (Jigglypuff) - Level 41
    Nature: Mild, Ability: Cute Charm
    - Disable
    - Shadowball
    - Rollout
    - Body Slam
    Status: Those damned Fire-types always get the hax when he has to solo them. The Magmar near Snowpoint got a crit, I healed to full but he got another crit, burned me and killed me by that stupid hail.. After Iron Island, it just needs to solo one more Fire-type to evolve. It's about time too; his paper thin defense is really starting to annoy me. I haven't even bothered leveling him anymore. His function is to come in, take a hit and Disable the most effective attack.. But more often than not he dies to a crit or simply get's OHKO'd.
    [​IMG]
    Abe (Togepi) - Level 38
    Nature: Gentle, Ability: Serene Grace
    - Charm
    - Yawn
    - Metronome
    - Wish
    Status:
    Yay he selected Tackle! He can be usefull even at a medium level. But right now it's his turn on the bench until after Snowpoint.

    [​IMG]
    Mare (Azumarill) - Level 51
    Nature: Serious, Ability: Huge Power
    - Rollout
    - Aqua Tail
    - Aqua Ring
    - Rain Dance
    I reserved Candice for DaVinci, so it was either Byron or Volkner. So I solo'd Byron with a level 40 Marill, but man was that stupid Magneton a pain! Even after one X-SpD Thunderbolt did between 90 and 105% damage! There was no other way that opting for mild team support: Puff Daddy could (barely) live one T-bolt to use Disable. This would give Mare enough time to set up +1 Att and SpD. Only a 2HKO with Aquatail, it still was difficult to pull it off. One Metal Sound and I would be done for:

    Turn 1: He T-bolts Puff Daddy, who Disable's this insane attack for 5 turns.
    Turn 2: Puff Daddy is killed by tri-attack.
    Turn 3: I send out Mare and use a Guard Spec to prevent his Metal Sound.
    Turn 4: I set up X-Spec Def while he uses Flash Cannon for pitiful damage.
    Turn 5: I set up X-Att while he uses another Metal Sound (key moment where I lost many times: If he had used Tri attack here, I would have had to heal, costing me a vital turn of disable and forcing me to stall 15 Thunderbolts with a high damage roll that OHKO's me regardless and no time to set up another X-SpD. If I had simply attacked on this turn, he would have used a Hyper Potion and stalled out the Disable)
    Turn 6: I attack with Aquatail, dealing 50% damage, he goes for another Metal Sound.
    Turn 7: Disable is over and he attacks with Thunderbolt, I live at 5 HP (another key moment) and KO the bastard with Aqua Tail.
    Rest of the Match: Fodder comes in to die to Earthquake. DaVinci comes in to Sketch and die. Mare continues his solo as I heal, set up X-def/X-att's, OHKO the Steelix on a crit and 2HKO the Bastiodon.
