also taken some ideas from UU thread but a lot is mine and also concept by someone idk who


Paprika & Basil
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 these 'spices' will be, different things you can accomplish on the ladder. Each group is worth a certain amount of points, and at the end of the month these points will be counted up and a winner will be selected. This winner will be put onto a leaderboard and will receive a [prize here idk it yet]! So, let's get into it.​

Rules:
  • When you are making posts to say you've achieved something, do not edit in more than four achievements. This means put up to five in one post, this makes it easier for me to keep track.
  • You do not have to go in order; be warned though, these go from easiest to hardest!
  • You may make alts, but once you've earned the points for a goal you can not do it repeatedly. [Ex: Achieve 1 point on main account, achieve same goal on an alt. This is not allowed.]
  • Provide Replays and / or Screenshots! If you do not, I will not count the point.
  • If you have already achieved a goal before signing up, you must achieve it again or provide necessary information!
Signing Up:
  • Simply post the username you're using (or any alts) and that you will be joining!
The Spices:

This is really great! Nice idea. I have a question, though.
  • If you have already achieved a goal before signing up, you must achieve it again or provide necessary information!
What is the necessary information, exactly? For instance, I'm sure I've accomplished the "Adrian Marin" one before. If I find a replay, does it count?

I mean relevant screen shots / replays and such, so yes

Okay.

So, in, I guess. Alts: you see, UC bad team, deadly sandpaper, 1v1 death test, aofs, Uses, 5 pokemon, Uselesscrab (more to come).

Here is my past battle for the Adrian Marin achievement: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/balancedhackmons-150252554

EDIT:

User: ucbadteam
FormatEloGXEGlicko-1COILWLT
balancedhackmons1450821789 ± 74--35-8-0


This should give me Achievement Get, Getting Warmer, Patrick, and Clear for take off.

The Missing Link (Oh, low ladder...how I love you)
http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/balancedhackmons-178185670

[EDIT]: Do I get clean for this one too, as I won 5-0 with a 5-mon team?

Sophie's Choice: (I'm assuming this means you need to win with a team of choiced, although it's not specified in the OP)
http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/1v1-178190324 (My team is Scarfed Kyube, Banded Terrakion, and Specs Zoroark)

The Illusion one for BH is impossible due to Ability Clause.

Cacnea :>

Alts: Goodfellow, Day J. (more to come later)

Haxmons - Win a battle in which 5 critical hits have occurred on your Pokemon [Tier of your choice]
Or, in other words, win a Haxmons battle.
The Bees Knees - Win the finals of a tournament in the Other Metagames room with a Beedrill on your team (NO Beedrilite) [Dependant on tour]
I dare someone to get The Bees Knees and The Missing Link at the same time in a BH Tourney.
u tried ur best - Play a battle in which every single one of your moves miss [Tier of your choice]
Or, in other words, use sub 100 accuracy moves in Haxmons.
ban defog - Set every entry hazard possible and manage to keep Rapid Spin or Taunt from occurring, if either of these moves are used entry hazards may not be set and this challenge must be redone [Tier of your choice]
Does this require 3 layers of Spikes and 2 layers of Toxic Spikes, or are 1 of each enough?
FINISH HIM - Knock out an opponent's final Pokemon with Giga Impact or Hyper Beam [Tier of your choice]
Probably shouldn't count 1v1 matches for this one. Also, are Blast Burn, Frenzy Plant, Hydro Cannon, and Rock Wrecker allowed for use in this as well?
 
In as: ellipse, OML ellipse, bak2cali, 1sttry, and imakealts

Tabmons and Clean

Clear for takeoff, getting warmer patrick, getting there, he was #1, and I think that allows for us to infer achievement get (Do I really have to take a second photo?) attached

Paprika:

Clear for take off - Reach 1400 ELO [Tier of your choice]

Pepper:

Gettin' There - Reach top 100 on the ladder [Tier of your choice]

Ohey it's a Gengar, no wait it's a Heatran, is that a Yveltal? - Win a battle in which all two Pokemon have Illusion [Balanced Hackmons]
I don't have any have any replays of this but I think this goes without saying ;)

Saltier: (hue)

he was #1 - Achieve #1 on the ladder [Tier of your choice]

close enough



Also you can't have a team with all pokemon having illusion in Balanced Hackmons because of ability clause

Ohey it's a Gengar, no wait it's a Heatran, is that a Yveltal? - Win a battle in which all Pokemon have Illusion [Balanced Hackmons]
This isn't possible with ability clause btw.

The Missing Link: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/balancedhackmons-178254874
TABmons: /rank Oh My Lordylord
Achievement Get: /rank Pikachuun
Getting Warmer Patrick: See above
Clean: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/balancedhackmons-177373490
Clear for take-off: /rank Pikachuun (BASED HACKMONS)
Almost word tier: Duh


to be continued.
 
IN like a melted popsicle

Wait that didn't make any sense

The illusion achievement can be changed to AAA, although then the title wouldn't make sense. Too bad Hackmons lost its ladder, that woulda been a fine choice too.

EDIT: oh right my alts
