    Ok I still need 1 Pokemon. I always reject one Poke and I hate kricketune so he's gone. I said I'd want 8 but I changed my mind so I only need 1 more. Check page 497 to see my conditions. So far I have:

    Luxray
    Gyarados
    Garchomp
    Magmar
    Torterra

    I'm looking forward to use lux and mag and I'd like a fun Poke as my last.

    Wait, does that mean after i solo a gym as a typhlosion i can only use 2 moves for the rest of the game?
    Edit: So as long as i don't use typlosion to solo a gym i can use all 4 moveslots?

    Ok, so my team so far:
    Cinder (Cyndaquil)
    Eve/Evan (Eevee)
    BAZZUP! (Mareep)
    Choice (Magikarp)
    Physical (Koffing)

    It's a pretty awesome team, and I am looking for 1 more poke! Right now I'm unable to surf unless i get Vaporeon (due to gyarados' restrictions) and i can't fly (yes it's not really useful but i like it! STOP JUDGING ME lol). I could always just put a mew as the last as an HM whore...

    No worries, 20 posts left until page 500.

    Can I get the last Pokemon for my XD scramble? (can't link because I'm on a phone, but it's on page 496). TalkingLion reserved it 2 days ago, but hasn't done anything with it.

    TyranitarPhantom, take the Shadow Altaria from Lovrina. You may not Purify it unless it solos the Shadow Salamence. If you fail you can purify it after soloing Greevil's Shadow Moltres and Tauros. As I have never played this game before, I may have made some mistakes. PM me if that is so, so I can tweek it.

    Bwahahaha, I find it hilarious that Fred is such a troll for you team with Swagger. Sounds like Gardenia gave you plenty of grievance too. I didn't expect my little joke challange to be hard but looks like I stand corrected!

    @Marodin, while I did not write that challange I still feel I can answer your questions for you :P.

    Yes, that means if you solo a gym leader as Typhlosion you're stuck with just 2 moves for the rest of the game, and if you do it with Quillava you're stuck with 3 moves. And no, you can't just not solo anything; you have to solo one gym leader at some point. However, if you solo this one gym leader when Cinder is still a Cyndaquil (I'd recommend Bugsy if I hadn't screwed you over by forcing BAZZUP! to solo him lol) you get to have all your moves.

    Does that clear it up for you?

    I'm still waiting for someone to tell me whether I should go down to Fuchsia via Lavender Town or Cycling road yet, and I need someone to tell me if I'm going to continue my Challange and write more updates for you lot!

    @King Serperior, Greevil is the final boss of XD. The game would be over before Tyranitarphantom gets a chance to purify Altaria, if he fails to solo the Salamence.

    jimera0: Man, I'm really enjoying your stories. Keep it going. And I sent you a PM with the road you must go to arrive in Fuschia!

    For the ones who want to know: I spent my sunday taking the TMs for my mons on soul silver (specially the fucking Flamethrower for Trusty, something that I must thank King Serperior). I gave up on giving Bulk Up for Chumchar, since I need 48 BP on battle Frontier, and 3 points per win is a shit, so he'll run Earthquake, making my mons kinda of crazy to kill without set-up(the funny part is running obligatory rain because of Trusty, without Water mons, but...). Gotta catch the itens I need(the berry for NOWEAK, the Black Sludge for Trusty, Leftovers for Clover, Black Belt for Chumchar and the Water-boosting-item-that-I-don't-know-the-name for SuperStuff(well, must solo to guys with Bubble, sooo...) after that I choose another item. Yanma can't carry any itens sadly.

    Just a little update ;D

    Aw, man, Zdrup.
    My Nuzlocke of Diamond came down to a Kricketune and a painfully under-leveled Wooper, and I still managed to pull it off.


    But if you insist on rejecting the mustachioed bug-type, take a Buizel and name it Need4Speed.
    This Buizel has a serious addiction to acceleration, so it can only use certain moves.
    Priority moves: (Aqua Jet and Quick Attack)
    Moves that boost speed: (Agility)
    Swift. (Get it? Because he's...nevermind)

    If it is raining, he can use whatever moves he wants, because he is fast enough with Swift Swim anyway.

    It must solo every trainer in a gym except the gym leader to evolve.
    It must solo three Pokémon in the elite four, all three belonging to different trainers.

    BrazilianGuy, the berry thing was dickish, I admit that. But I'm now 11 posts away from possibly winning a scramble award for it. Also, assignments are done, I believe!

    Awwwwwww, BrazillianGuy, why do you keep putting Trusty? I did give you an easier challenge, but you wanted it more difficult. Because of that, if you give me Trusty as a payback challenge, I will only take the first one I gave you. I won't take Trusty#2 because you basically gave it to yourself when you asked for an upgrade. I am not trying to be rude or anything, but you got a Threadshot level challenge for free. Have a great run though:P

    @King Serperior: Man, I REALLY appreciate Trusty, due to the fact that it'll be REALLY difficult(it already started the difficult part by making me take that fucking flamethrower in the casino....argh). And I'll never give you a payback challenge, IF you want a very difficult challenge, I will think in a new one with cruelty and pleasure hehe ;D

    Guys, remember to leave Page 500 to the awards. If I'm not there at the time the awards are posted, then so be it, for this will probably be the last of my 732 Posts in this thread.

    Thanks for the memories & I'll see you in the new thread!

    Cheers!

    P.S. Remember to leave the new thread's OP to me. Thank you.

    Well, I've finished a scramble with pokemon such as stantler and gastly (I had to solo a scrappy miltank with it but even at lv 35 I couldn't beat the lv 20 miltank...) so that's not the problem. I just hate that moustache.

    Your poke has a loop I'll take. If it has rain dance on its movepool it can use any attack after only one turn xD Thanks, I'm now done!

    I'm not happy!!! I have to solo Jasmine with a Scizor that has the moveset: x-scissor, Steel Wing, Slash, and Roost. This is going to be a painful solo:(

    Where's my Hippopotas?

    Edit: @King Serperior, you already gave me the Skorupi.

    Edit 2: @auramaster, I'll give you credit for Hippo instead, since you were the one who posted after King Serperior.

    Pika, go-ahead and take Dependent the Hippo. It's moveset is depend upon the first 4 different types pulled from Metronome. That means if the first four types are ground, ice, normal, and dark, it can only know moves of that type. Hidden Power counts.
