    Okay Endquote, catch a Pikachu in Viridian Forest and call it Mouse. He thinks he's some kind of supermouse, so start out by soloing Misty with him. Unfortunately, the battle opens its eyes and it becomes as timid as any other mouse - in fact, it refuses to battle at all unless you have no other options (ie everything else has fainted). To make up for that, it wants to help you as much as possible in other ways - give it Flash, Strength, Rock Smash, Dig and/or any other moves that are useful outside of battle! (Ideally you can get a Flying/Surfing Pikachu instead).

    Endquote, take Stoned the Eevee.

    As an Eevee, there are no restrictions what-so-ever. It's an Eevee for Pete's sake!!

    Of course, an unevolvable Eevee is much too harsh for this kind of scramble, so I would recommend it's evolution ASAP.

    Once it has evolved, however, there are some interesting restrictions:

    Vaporeon - because evolution stones are such bad drugs for Pokemon, this Vaporeon is now an addict. It must hold a Water Stone at all times. Vaporeon is such an addict, it Must have everything artificial (HMs, TMs, Tutor moves, etc). Natural substances are bad for this little dude. This "no natural substances" rule includes level up moves. Solo a total of 20 rocket grunts in total because rocket grunts are known for artificial creation.

    Jolteon - everyone knows that Thunder Stones are ground up to make the substance known as Speed. Every thing about this little one must be fast. Teach it Thunder because the lightning is fast, as in SUPER FAST! Agility and Quick Attack are also musts because how else will he become the fastest of the fast? It loves that Speed drug so give it a Thunder Stone for it to grind up. Solo 10 motorcyclists in total (no rematches) because this Jolteon is faster than any mechanical system.

    Flareon - this little dude got horrendously messed up when the drug known as the Fire Stone got applied to it. It becomes very psychotic and hallucinates like crazy. It sees Game Freak Agents everywhere and thinks that it is a spy that must steal the move known as Flare Blits from them. It has defenses against hostile agents. One way is a smoke bomb (Sand Attack). If it gets caught by one, it's has to Bite and kick it's way to freedom. This little Flareon drinks a lot and so it has enough empty bottles to make Molotov Coktails (Overheat). He also hast to be able to run from enemies, so Quick Attack is a must. It thinks that it cannot live without that Fire Stone which talks to him. Solo a total of 10 Super Nerds/Pokemainacs because they are known to be undercover agents of Game Freak.

    Have fun and good luck :D

    Reserving for WizardDresden.

    WizardDresden, take Not OU the Timburr. For some reason, Not OU decided that he doesn't like the fact that his final evolution (Conkeldurr) is a top OU pokemon. Your Timburr strives to be different from the rest. Firstly, Not OU may never learn a move that is on Conkeldurr's Smogon analysis, because Not OU has decided that he can win using unconventional methods. Also, Not OU must never evolve into Conkeldurr, because that base 140 attack stat is sooo overrated. Also its name is funny. Finally, Not OU must solo Marshal, because Not OU wants to prove that even though he is NFE, he is also an Elite fighting type.

    Platinum Scramble-Updates weekly!

    After the whole 5 hours spent on a female Piplup, and trying to find loopholes in Global (spoiler: there aren't any), I finally got the nerve to start up Platinum and do real updates. This is the post where all updates will come in.

    The challanges:
    Professor Science's Piplup (obtained) (soloing the game like a boss until I get Global or Staravia)
    Treadshot A1's Global (unobtained, but chosen) (loopholes found and will be abused)
    TM13 Ice Beam's Staravia (unobtained)
    Jimera0's Espeon (unobtained)
    Obbmud99's Tangela (unobtained) (FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUU)
    Kyuremhunter's Riolu (unobtained)

    As a possible incentive to perform, any pokemon who are complete bosses in this challange have the chance to be immortalized in my ASB team. No pressure.

    Just a reminder to everyone that we still need nominations for the 6th edition of the Scramble Challange Awards, which will be handed out on page 100! The nomination period ends when we hit page 90, so be sure to go here and nominate your favorites before it's too late!

    If you don't want to go through the entire thread looking for nominees, I've made a convenient list of many of the worthy challanges that were handed out on the 4th page of this topic. Please note that none of my own challanges are listed, and that it is not a comprehensive list; I might've missed some really good ones, so you might want to go look for yourself if you have the time!

    So get to it scramblers! I want this Scramble Awards to be the best EVAR so let's get moving!

    Because thre first time Grassblade scrambled he declined my challenge, so he reserved me a spot in the second one to try and temper my anger. Sadly for him, revenge is sweet, so I decided to make his life hell. He's a good sport, though, as he accepted Vanguard. :)

    Oh dear.
    I just read the nominees for the scramble awards. THREE of my challenges are up for hard/infamy. WOO.

    Don't worry, I'm gonna get better at making challenges. I've got two ready for the next 3rd/5th gen scramblers who arrive, Redfoo and Willow will never be seen again, and Healfodder will (to reference Tvtropes) take a level in badass.

    I find it quite sad that I have 3, yes 3 hardest challange nom-worthy challanges. Seriously, remember Odd the Oddish? I feel sorry for Endquote, and for whoever got Useless the Farfetch'd. Seriously, that challange is more sadistic then some of Treadshot's (not like that's an accomplishment or anything). At least I only give really hard ones when they are asked for (Treadshot, I'm looking at you).

    (Oh yeah Treadshot, Vanguard has a loophole. You say solo 7 Pokemon per route, so solo 7 wild pokemon and done!)
  18. EndQuote


    May 5, 2011
    Ax, Odd the Oddish Vileplume was my third-place MVP, and would have been second place if I'd gotten Torchic or Mudkip as a starter.

    The trick was to run from wild Oddish and Shroomish like a frightened rabbit, keep track of turns, and teach him Giga Drain.

    His solo-two-trainers-per-gym thing was surprisingly easy, with only the Psychic-type gym giving me trouble.

    Save your sympathy for somebody who needs it, like Brazilianguy, who I think was killed by his Scramble. (Seriously, where'd he go?)

    Boxed: Can never use super-effective moves is a ridiculously...well...restricting restriction. NotBroken here will be in reserve

    Yet to be Caught:
    Dispute the Doduo (Routes 16, 17, and 18)

    Brock Bites the dust (open)

    I stroll into the gym, easily defeating a lackey and anticipating a simple match.
    Four team members caught, and not a single casualty so far.
    Brock should be easy enough, I've been training MAN UP for awhile now, he's ready to sweep.
    PTSD can't attack Brock's Geodude, and I don't dare send the fire-type up against Onix, so I'm relying on my Mankey here.

    Sure enough, his Geodude is easily 2HKOed by Karate Chop.

    Up next, Onix rears his ugly head.

    Did you know Onix weighs 463 pounds?

    This gives Low Kick a BP of 120, plus STAB.

    Not so cocky now, are ya, rock snake?

    One easy OHKO later, Brock lies defeated.
    Mouse vs Misty (open)

    Going into this battle, I'm still confident.
    I've got six pokes, no casualties, a badge to my name, and a level 26 Pikachu with Thunderbolt!
    In the words of the Scout, let's waste 'em!

    The lovely Misty leads with Staryu. Mouse shoots the starfish with a strong Thunderbolt, scoring an easy OHKO.

    Up next is Starmie. This thing caused me to rage so hard, way back in the day.
    However, history fails to repeat itself (it killed my entire team for chrissakes) and Thunderbolt OHKOes!

    However, my victory is bittersweet.
    Though I'm one badge closer to the Pokémon league, one badge closer to being the very best (like no one ever was), I also have to say goodbye to Mouse.

    Adios, Mouse. I'm boxing you for now, as per your restrictions, but it's nice to know that if all else fails, you'll be there to clean up with STAB Thunderbolt.

    Slaughtering Surge (open)

    After solving the world's worst gym puzzle (We have to root through trash? Really?) I finally made it to Lt. Surge.
    Of my remaining Pokémon who need to solo a gym leader, I've decided Surge should be easiest for Status.
    That leaves Freya to solo Koga, and MAN UP to solo one of Sabrina's pokes.
    EDIT: Nevermind, MAN UP soloed Route 3, through the magic of the Vs Seeker.
    Jesus, that's going to be hell. But, not my problem right now.

    After some blather about war that I think PTSD was connecting with, Surge sends out his Voltorb.
    Here we go, Status!

    While it Shock Waves Status for (luckily) pathetic damage, my Gloom puts it to sleep with Sleep Powder.
    Bullet Seed nails the snoozing Voltorb for solid damage, and Surge wastes the first of his Potions.
    Luckily, with the help of a crit, the Voltorb falls.

    ONE DOWN. Up next is Pikachu
    It Double Teams, like a jerk, and my Sleep Powder misses.
    Again it messes around with evasive tomfoolery, but Sleep Powder hits it's mark this time.
    Surge, being the douche he is, wakes Pikachu up while Status's Bullet Seed sails overhead.

    Deciding to stall this out, I instead order my Gloom to inflict poison with PoisonPowder, and the attack miraculously hits the Double-Teaming Pikachu.

    Pikachu Thunder Waves, but Status's Cheri Berry kicks in and cures the paralysis.
    Bullet Seed misses.

    Quick Attack does pathetic damage.
    Bullet Seed misses again.

    Ditto Quick Attack
    Bullet Seed finally hits and KOes the Mouse Pokémon.

    TWO DOWN, but here comes Raichu!

    It Double Teams, but Status successfully nails it with a Sleep Powder.

    Four turns later, the still-sleeping Raichu falls to Bullet Seed.

    That was far easier than I expected.
    Surge has fallen, and I'm still casualty-less. (Odd, that)
    Ember-spam against Erika (open)

    Going into this battle, I'm pretty confident.
    At the moment, PTSD is by far my MVP, and I have a fool-proof plan:
    Spam Ember Like Crazy.
    Operation SELC AWAY!

    First up is Victreebel, who hopefully will evolve into Defeatbel.
    Wow. That pun was terrible.

    Ember does over half and burns Victreebel while it Stun Spores PTSD.
    My Charmeleon quickly incinerates the Victreebel, taking nothing more than a weak Acid in the process.

    Up next is Tangela, Erika's weakest pokemon.
    I take a moment to heal PTSD's paralysis while it sets up Ingrain.
    Ember is a clean OHKO. No soup Ingrain stalling for you!

    Erika's final poke, Vileplume, is sent out to avenge her teammates.
    Ember does about a third damage, and it Stun Spores me.
    PTSD is repeatedly fully paralyzed, but I forgot to buy Parlyz heals, so we're just going to have to tough it out.

    After taking about five Acids, watching Erika fully heal her Vileplume twice, and getting Fully Paralyzed entirely too often, PTSD finally managed to finish off the damn mushroom and win me a badge.

    That's not a loop hole. You were supposed to solo 7 wilds. That was the point of the challenge. You didn't think you had to solo 7 trainer Pokemon did you? What are you trying to do, confuse Grassblade?

    whoops. Yeah, I was mistaken. Even so, you could add the trainer-owned part for extra hardness!

    Arceustar, take an Oshawott named Richie.

    Like his name suggests, this Oshawott thinks he's loaded. To show off his wealth, he must solo your rival's starter on every free encounter. But Richie also handles his business like a maffioso: He thinks he can just bribe his way through this challange by throwing money at every restriction he doesn't like: You can skip the rival solo, for instance, by paying $500 x your number of badges. However, if you ever fail a restriction, you must pay a fine ($1000 x your number of badges). You can pay the money, simply by trashing items from your bag.

    Similar to bribing the Rival, Richie has several other rules to screw (he has money). Below is a list of medium difficulty restrictions. You can choose to accept them (and risk paying the $1000 x Badges fine), or you can pay the corresponding price and never worry about them again. Note that you can always decide to break any rule once and simply pay the fine (if you really need to attack ghosts for instance). I've tried to make things easy for you, if things are still too hard you may replace Cheren's Snivy by Bianca's Tepig for a (very) easy challange. For the gym solo's you may reset as often as you wish, but giving up means paying the fine.

    - Must solo Cheren's Snivy on each encounter ($500 x Number of Badges)
    - Must solo Clay ($5000)
    - Must solo Caitlin ($10000)
    - Cannot hold an item ($2000)
    - Cannot use X-items in battle ($5000)
    - Cannot learn status moves by TM ($10000)
    - Cannot directly attack Ghost Types ($5000)
    - Must keep Focus Energy ($5000)
    - Must keep Razor Shell ($2000)

    One final thing: Every time you bribe your way through, shout "Screw the Rules, I have money!". If you manage to buy off all restrictions, rename him Godfather and fight Morimoto (or pay $5000 to get out of it).

    Have Fun!
