Sometimes, Other Metagame ladders can be quite the drag to play with the inactivity of some; but what if we could spice it up and keep it interesting for you? That's what this thread will be for, different things you can accomplish on the ladder. Each achievement is worth a certain amount of points, and the goal is to rack up as many points as you can. If you collect all the achievements, you get a custom title courtesy of EV !_!

Rules:
  • You may edit posts with new achievements you obtained. However, I'll quote every posts with achievements I've updated, and after that I won't go back to that post anymore. Up to that, please use the same post.
  • You may make alts, but make sure to provide proof of ownership if you are introducing a new one.
  • Provide Replays and / or Screenshots! If you do not, I will not count the point.
  • If your opponent forfeits, it doesn't count unless otherwise specified.
  • You have to obtain these achievements on the ladder unless stated otherwise. This has the added benefit of giving new players a chance to play experienced players and potentially learn from their teambuilding and/or playing.
  • Pretty please do these on new alts, there isn't a tag required just that the regdate is after the 10th. If you really want a tag just do OLA (rule suggested by Isotonex, approved by Chloe and tag suggested by pqs)
  • Suggest, suggest, suggest! Suggestions for new achievements are always welcome and appreciated. If your achievement suggestion is approved, it will be added to the OP in the following month and credit will be given.
  • Except for in 1v1, your opponent must have 6 Pokemon unless specified otherwise.
Signing Up:
  • Simply post the username you're using (or any alts) and that you will be joining!

All of these are added except for pazza's forfeit bait, as the battle must have lasted at least five turns for it to be considered valid if the opponent forfeits. Congratulations to Ransei and pqs on being the first 1v1 Hall of Fame members!

Second of all, a question that's commonly come up is if you can only attain Technician by using the Pokemon's weakest move and nothing else: This is correct.

you should make people create new accounts. some people already have accounts in top 10. it would be unfair to others
I really like this suggestion and appreciate your interest. I'll talk it over with some people and if they approve I'll follow up by letting this thread know.

Finally, thanks to dom for the amazing banner!

Keep in mind that if I missed an achievement above or if you have any new achievements following this update, I'd like you all to make new posts as it makes it easier on me to update and keep track of everything.

Have fun guys, thanks again for the massive interest!

For the boom achievement, does every pokemon on the team have to know explosion, or merely be able to learn explosion? I might as well as go for that achievement if I've already qualified for half of the achievements in mnm already.
 
#16
I qualify for (Bejewelled)I think and (Boom) with one replay too. love lower mnm ladder, tbh
I think I also qualify for Mix and Mega Hall of Fame since I have every achievement in that section.
first hall of fame I'm in that's not about beating the Elite 4 in pokemon
Added to both, congratulations!

Also, I wanted to address something else.

I heard multiple complaints about how some achievements can exploit the dumbness of the lower ladder - While this is true, there are other, more difficult achievements in place to ensure that genuinely skilled players can attain all of these achievements and earn that custom title, not just cheese their way to it. Also, that problem about exploiting the low ladder is always going to be there and in some metagames it's kinda unrealistic to put a minimum ELO requirement (such as Camomons, AAA or STABmons, which get less plays and have a lower ELO than most of them) and in addition, an ELO requirement doesn't always guarantee that the player you're facing won't be new to the game in a lot of the ladders. It's true that the general rule is that the higher the ELO, the more skilled your battle will be but I looked at and thought about each achievement myself and I think that they're possible regardless of the ELO level, so I added some more achievements that didn't rely on exploiting the state of a specific ladder and instead relied on your own skill to get through. It's also not really a problem with the achievements themselves in a lot of cases, rather a problem w/ the ladder.

This is a fairy unexplored concept, though, and I do appreciate all of the suggestions and concerns that are being brought up. Trust me when I say I consider everything you all suggest and really am grateful for all the interest, and I'm proud that contributors new and old are taking an interest in this. We can all make this an awesome project and we're already well on our way there, with the activity, criticism and players supporting each other in order to attain a truly awesome project with blooming amounts of activity.

Finally, I'd just like to say that these challenges could be just one-off things, but they're a good way to improve your teambuilding and playing as well and thinking outside the box is a really nice skill to have. You can decide what you want out of it, and no matter what it is nobody will judge you. I'd probably join for the custom title because let's be honest that's a pretty awesome prize to have, but it'd also force me to practice my battling, think outside the box and overall better myself if I set imaginary goals for myself in addition to these achievements (e.x. "I won't submit this achievement unless I go up against x player or am at a battle ranked at x ELO.")

STABmons:
  • (Donor) Only use moves that were granted by the typing of a pre-evolution.
Doesn't this technically mean that if I wanted I could still use like Outrage and Earthquake on a Garchomp because Gible is the same type? Obviously this differs for like Eeveelutions and Tyranitar but some clarification would be nice.

Also, If a Pokemon loses type upon evolving (Gloom -> Bellossom), can Bellossom use Grass and Poison moves, or just Grass?

E: Also, I assume this means we can't use single-stage Pokemon like Mimikyu?
 
#22
pazza 5 turns for Forfeit Bait
Otherwise these are added! Was gonna say that you can only use the weakest move, but that seems ridiculously difficult in retrospect so I'll just say you can't use anything of higher damage output. That should make the achievement easier. Special congratulations to Ransei on making it to two halls of fame!

this doesn't seem possible. unless you face one mon or like a joke team. the challenges shouldn't have to require you matching up against a non-legit team to succeed.
In hindsight this is true, I'll remove it after posting this.

Yes, Grass AND Poison, and no you can't.

Edit: Also I talked it out w/ Chloe and apparently there wouldn't be a problem if I made new alts a requirement, so I'll do that now since valid points have been brought up in support of this claim.
