Project G7 PU Laddering Achievements (PULA)

#1
approved by galbia, Megazard, and Anty OP stolen adapted from Karxrida 's thread here

Have you ever been bored laddering? If so, then this is for you! The aim of this thread is to create goals for players to achieve in order to have more fun while laddering.
General Achievement Rules
  • All battles must be on the PU ladder on Pokémon Showdown.
  • You must provide a replay or screenshot, accompanied by a pastebin where required.
  • You may get multiple achievements from the same battle.
  • You must win the battle to get the achievement.
  • You may count battles that end in forfeits if the opponent has 2 or fewer pokémon left. You may not count battles that end in forfeits for achievements that say "no forfeits".
  • Similarly, you may count time-outs if they have 3 or fewer pokémon left. Achievements with "no forfeits" do not allow you do submit replays with time-outs either.
  • If I can't figure out what I'm looking at, I'm just going to assume you got nothing; therefore, please don't make up new names for the achievements unless it's obvious what you mean e.g. "monofighting" and list the turns on which any requirements happened e.g. "(replay) Kamukaze (turns 3, 7, 16)."
  • You may not get any achievements if your opponent starts with 4 or fewer pokémon.
  • I do not give the "God" achievements or list people in the halls of fame automatically; you must say if you believe you meet the criteria to be added.

So, the G7 PULA thread is finally up! Just a few changes:

  • I've dropped "Quick Finisher" and "Blitzkreig" down by one category each, since lots of people achieved them last gen.
  • I've added a new achievement "Lightspeed" as an ultimate tier replacement for Blitzkreig.
  • I've removed "Meme Dream" since it needs the VRs and they're not out yet, but it will be restored when the PUVR thread is out.
  • I've changed the requirements for "Just getting started" and made it silver.
  • I replaced "A-" with "GXExcellent" and changed the requirements, since no one achieved it last gen.
  • With the leader-board, I'll follow points by the number of achievements someone's got (e.g. "100 (40)") to make it easier to keep track of the "Halls of Fame".

I can't give you "Metal men", "Brass badasses", "American allies", "Technically Monotype", or "Muggles" because they forfeited with more than 2 mons remaining. Sorry! See the rules outlined in the OP.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7pubeta-621967813 For the Little Guys
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7pubeta-621988703 In practice

Some constructive criticism

Up and Coming's ELO should be reduced or it shouldn't be Bronze. In order to get 1400 ELO you have to be top 82 on the ladder which doesn't make sense when there is a gold achievement for getting top 50.
Keep on Going probably should be clarified on whether or not hi jump kicking a ghost type counts or not
Knock it off! probably should be clarified on how it works with non-knockoffable Z crystals. Most teams carry a Z move if the opponent has a Z move can you not get this achievement?
The Fource is Strong with this one shouldn't be gold. It's not that hard to make a decent team using 6 mons with 4x weaknesses.
Attack! Attack! Attack! probably should be bronze.

Various Thoughts
  • Having an opponent forfeit as soon as their 3rd to last pokemon is going to die is the most infuriating thing on the planet
  • Mono normal, steel, and ice suck. Gurdurr/Primeape/Passimian/Hitmonchan are on literally every team.
  • Stats don't mean nothing isn't too hard Gurdurr, Haunter, and Kadabra are all really good.
  • Gen 6 Generational is really hard it's pretty much Pyroar + screens Meowstic + 4 crappy mons of your choice
  • Easiest way to get For the Little Guys is either a clamperl or Pawniard sweep
  • Avoid setting up early even if the opportunity presents itself and a clean sweep is likely since 90% of the time they'll forfeit before 2 mons are left.
  • Was enjoyable going for achievements

Hey guys! So obviously there's been a lot of links sent in a short amount of time and I do watch them all to check everything is in order, so please be patient with me as it will take a while to get through them all. Once I've done a comment, I'll "like" it to let you and myself know that I've done that one.
