Challenge The Scramble Challenge - Mark 2

Lol sorry about the user mix up.

Brett was panting by the time he got out of the woods. He had spent the last 15 minutes literally chasing the Pidgey around. This might be harder than he thought. He got into Santalune City and booked a night at the hotel. He would need his rest before challenging the Gym Leader and the paparazzi alike. Pidgey fluttered out the window, promising it would return.

Brett woke up rudely to the sound of his pidgey screaming at the top of its lungs. He ran outside, and saw another pokemon chasing it, almost playfully. His pokedex identified is as a Litleo. It noticed Brett, walked over, and playfully lit his shoe on fire. Brett jumped around for a but before putting the fire out. He decided to walk away as fast as he could, and made it into the Gym with pidgey before any more garments were lit ablaze.

"Welcome, Brett! I will be your Gym leader, Viola! I don't suppose I could take a few pictures of you during our match?"

Brett nodded, and Pidgey swooped down, landing softly on the battlefield.

"Go, Surskit!"

Pidgey flew up, and used Gust. Unfortunately, the Surskit avoided it, and retaliated with String Shot. Pidgey flew up to it extremely quickly and head butted it backwards, then hit it with a Gust as it was trying to get up.

"Surskit is unable to battle! The challenger leads by one!"

The next pokemon up was vivillion. Pidgey started barraging it with Quick Attacks, but it held on, and as Pidgey stopped to rest for a bit, fired off Infestation. Trapped by infestation and slowed by String shot, pidgey fell alarmingly quickly.

"Pidgey is unable to battle!"

Brett stood there, shocked. He didn't have any other pokemon, did he? Just then he heard the door creaking, and before he knew it, the same Litleo had bounded into the room.

"Sorry! He was barking so loudly at the door that I had to let him in!"

Brett nodded, and stared at the Litleo. It got the message and didn't light him on fire. Instead, it ran onto the battlefield and glared down Vivillion.

Viola stared at it for a few seconds. "Is this your second Pokemon?"

Brett nodded, unsure of what else to do. Before he could react, the Litleo was running at full speed towards the Vivillion. Vivillion dodged, but with remarkable agility, Litleo flipped over and was able to hit Vivillion in mid-air, lighting one of its wings on fire. Vivillion quickly batted out the flames, but didn't notice Litleo charging, and waiting. Suddenly, a massive amount of flame burst out of its mouth, completely enveloping the vivillion. The end was clear.

"Vivillion is unable to battle. And the winner is the challenger!"

Brett stood there, shocked. He had won!

"Good job, Brett! I have some photos of you now too!"

A few hours later, Brett finished packing. He was still very confused by what happened. As he got into the taxi that was carrying him to Lumiose, the litleo made an appearance again. Before Brett could do anything, it ran up and hit the button of one of his Pokeballs. It was almost like the Litleo wanted to be with him…

wipe count-1

now, a lot more happened in game than in the update, but I'll write about that later.
Basically, got Burniate, and clean swept the Gym. Explorer didn't die, but I liked the prosaic feel of it. Explorer is a little over leveled, so getting through the routes is easy. AT lumiose city, i got and trashed the squirtle, and grinded a lot at Cafe le nah. The next route netted me Cookie Lover, who is, for now, limited to pound and yawn. yay. I got the amulet coin, and slap in on Explorer, since thats the most bang for buck.

Then I had that wipe. Yeah. That was fun. Furfrous are bulky. Needless to say, I procured Wall and King Arthur, and used Ghost type shenanigans to pound those people into the ground. Next up, Connecting Cave!

Explorer (Pidgey)
LV 29
-Whirlwind
-Twister
-Gust
-Quick Attack

Burniate (Litleo)
Lv 19
-Noble Roar
-Leer
-Work Up
-Ember

Wall (Snorlax)
LV 15
-Amnesia
-Defense Curl
-Tackle
-Lick

King Arthur (Honedge)
LV 15
-Tackle
-Pursuit
-Swords Dance
-Metal Sound

Cookie Lover (Gulpin)
LV 15
-Pound
-Yawn
-Poison Gas
-Sludge


Burniate doesn't learn Incinerate until lv 45. Glorious.
However, Wall will be able to lolz Wulfric with Heavy Slam. Screams triumphantly
Explorer's hardest hitting move is Quick attack. Which I can't use until the 4th turn.
King Arthur can essentially pwn the entire 3rd Gym solo. Great.


Ok Tetrinity (lmao actually correct tag this time) Two things:
One, I realized this might be an issue, so if its too annoying, Healthy can bypass the switch rule if it has a solo.

Also, Can Arthur evolve once its reached the Elite 4, or does it actually have to be in the building? This influences my ability to teach King's Shield to it.

Fair enough. Since I went with Switch battle style in the end, the only time it's been an issue is when a trainer leads with Poochyena / Mightyena and I haven't led with Healthy, which happens rarely enough that it's not been a big deal to just let something faint.

Teaching King's Shield is fine. I suppose it's a bit ambiguous, but I consider "reaching the E4" to be achieved when it's possible to Fly to the Pokemon League.

Ok sound good. XD it is an ambiguous thing that has a big impact.

Welp, thought I would rant for a bit.
Basically All of my pokemon have crappy natures:

Explorer: +Atk, -Spe. Wow. This makes my best move Quick Attack.
Burniate: +SpD, -Spe. Ehhhhhhhhh… not too good.
Wall: +SpA, -Spe. Again, not crappy, but not good either.
Cookie Lover: +Def, -SpD. ummm does anyone actually use this type of ability?
King Arthur. +SpD, -Atk. Wow. Of all the pokemon to have -atk, its this one. GOD DANG IT

Hey! I thought, "Dang, I've done X so much... I'm gonna do a challenge!" so I would like to do a challenge for X, maybe normal difficulty? I would like it if for an extra level to it though, to only use Pokemon that are either blue, purple, grey, black, or white.

EDIT
Basic overview

X
Normal
All Pokemon have to be blue, purple, grey, black, white, or pink so that the team is in STYLE.
Trading is okay. :D

ANOTHER EDIT

Accepted Pokemon

Indecisive the Goomy
Reserving what (hopefully) will become my signature challenge!MUAHAHAnah its ok ill go easy on you

ok HelenTheHero take Indecisive the Goomy

This Goomy is insanely indecisive about everything it does, and is especially indecisive about the type chart! So, once Indecisive is caught, RNG 2 numbers between 1 and 18.Indecisive must solo all pokemon of the first type, and CANNOT BATTLE any pokemon of the second type. Pokemon share the two types? You pick.

numbers to types (close)


1-Normal
2-Fighting
3-Flying
4-Poison
5-Ground
6-Rock
7-Bug
8-Ghost
9-Steel
10-Fire
11-Water
12-Grass
13-Electric
14-Psychic
15-Ice
16-Dragon
17-Dark
18-Fairy



The kicker?Change the numbers after every Gym battle.
Indecisive is also very indecisive about evolving. It doesn't really get the point of evolving at first, until one of your other pokemon evolve.Once Indecisive reaches lvl 40, it cannot evolve until another pokemon evolves, and then must evolve ASAP.Then, Indecisive learns that it evolves in the rain, but that is too straightforward and decisive for this pokemon.Indecisive cannot evolve into Goodra unless the weather is changed during the battle which it evolves in. Any pokemon can fufill this role.
Too hard? Drop the evolution restrictions.
Too easy?Give Indecisive permanent Torment (cannot use the same move twice in a row)


Hydrangea the White Flower Florges
Take a White Flower Florges and name her after a white flower of your choice. She loves the color White and refuses to be caught in any ball except Premier. This Florges loves two things: Music and Nature. Therefore the Florges can only learn the following attacks: Grassy Terrain, Disarming Voice, Petal Dance, Petal Blizzard, Solarbeam, Flower Shield, Magical Leaf, Razor Leaf, Lucky Chant, Grass Knot, Energy Ball, Round, Echoed Voice, and Aromatherapy (your choice of 4). Florges can also only use damaging attacks in a grassy battlefield (does not matter if it's natural grass or from Grassy Terrain).
hite Flower Florges


Smasher the Jigglypuff
HelenTheHerotake Smasher the Jigglypuff.

This Jigglypuff wants to be like the Jigglypuff from the Super Smash Bros. series. There are only two restrictions:

· No evolving Smasher. Ever. Jigglypuff cannot evolve in Smash!

· Solo all Pokemon from lines that fight in Smash.

Specifically, the Pokemon whose lines need to be soloed are:

· Pikachu

· Jigglypuff

· All three Kanto starters

· Lucario

· Greninja

· Mewtwo

(And yes, this is a copy of the challenge I gave BetaBuck because I couldn't think of anything new. Sorry!)


Rusty the Golett
Take Rusty the Golett. Rusty is old... very old. After being buried underground for thousands of years, he's feeling very much worse for wear, and has only the most basic capability for movement -Rusty may only use the move in the top left corner. You may rearrange moves outside of battle, but are locked into the top-left move once in one.

As Rusty travels with you and gets more exercise, however, the rust starts to clear away and he becomes more capable.Unlock more moveslots by completing any of the following tasks(one task = one extra moveslot):

- Solo a Gym Leader
- Use Rusty to complete all 18 of the stat training games in Super Training
- Have the ability Klutz
- Learn and keep Rock Polish. If you unlock a moveslot in this way, Rock Polish must always be one of the moves available in battle and must be the first move used after Rusty is sent out.

Rusty may evolve into Golurk at any time. However, doing so prevents any further moveslots from being unlocked, even if you later complete a task.


Radiance/Glimmer/Shimmer II the Dratini
HelenTheHerotake Radiance the Dratini. Radiance is a beautiful, powerful Pokémon, and she knows it. As soon as you possibly can, replace all 4 of Radiance's moves with moves in the Beautiful category. Evolve into Dragonair at any time. Radiance is also determined to show that she doesn't need the strength of an ugly Dragonite, which I know you hate. Never evolve into Dragonite, and solo Drasna to prove Dragonair is strong. Finally, always set up Rain Dance or Hail on your first turn in battle to marvel in the beautiful weather (the TMs are in South Lumiose and Shalour).


Tank the Squirtle
I'll make one for you later today. BTW, i still need 3 pokemon to start my OR scramble.
EDIT:
Take Tank the Squirtle. This squirtle belives it is very tanky, and must have an impish, bold or relaxed nature. It must learn a move that lowers opposing pokemon's attack or special attack, or raises it's defense or special defense ASAP. It must keep one of those moves for the whole game, but you can switch one move that fits the criteria for another that fits the criteria. It also refuses to use any moves boosted by mega launcher. No restrictions on evolving into wartortle, but must solo all gym trainers in a gym to evolve into blastoise. It must solo 1 e4 member. Tank also will allow any other pokemon to solo if it needs to instead of it. Depending on the nature you pick, tank must either:
For impish it must keep a water move forever.
For bold it may never have a status move besides the required attack-/spatk-/def+/spdef+ move.
For relaxed it must take a massage every other day you play the game, and it can't battle on the days it doesn't take a massage (note: this doesn't come into action until you can get massages ingame)

To sum it up:
~ Must have impish, bold or relaxed nature
~ Must have either a move that lowers opposing pokemon's attack stat, or raises one of your defense stats. Must keep whole game.
~ Can never use mega launcher boosted moves
~ To evolve into blastoise it must solo all gym trainers in a gym
~ Must solo 1 e4 member
~ For impish it must always have a water move, for bold it may never have a status move that isn't the required one, for relaxed it must take a massage every other day you play the game.

Too hard? drop the "if you have nature this must happen" thing. still too hard? remove can never use mega launcher boosted moves.

EDIT2: forgot about color thing, i think i edited everything to fit.

Who, me? :) I'll just...not provide a scramble mon for now, since I go overboard too much. How's the Insanity going for your scramble? Looking forward to the next update.
let me just say that I am enjoying double battle grinding at Cafe Le Nah. Oh and that having to whirlwind Grant is going to SUCK. anyone else have better grinding spots?

PS since we're talking can Insanity inflict the RNG penalty on himself?

Insanity can, actually. And the rng penalty stays if you switch pokemon.

Ohhh, I like this! I have a question though, is it required that Smasher has to solo all of them, or just if one appears in a battle, Smasher must be sent out to battle them?

If a Trainer has, for example, a Jigglypuff and a Clefairy, then the Jigglypuff must be soloed by Smasher, but the Clefairy does not have to be. I hope that helps!

Hi everyone, it's been a reaaaaalllllyyyyyy long time, but with school and everything I haven't really had the time for Smogon anymore in the past two years. BUT, I graduated recently, so I'll have plenty of time now during the summer. But, let's cut to the chase, I'm here cause I want a scramble. So, I want an Emerald scramble, medium difficulty (nothing super easy but nothing stupidly hard either). Only requirement is a full party of six at the end of the game.
 
Emerald, eh?

Organization Member XIV take a Slakoth. You can name him whatever you want.

This Slakoth, unfortunately, is sick. As such, you must use Potions/Super Potions/Hyper Potions/Max Potions on him as soon as he takes any damage whatsoever. This may be done either in battle or immediately after the battle where the Slakoth takes damage. In addition, all status conditions must be cured the turn after they happen.

Three Gym Leaders - Norman, Tate, and Liza - have medicine that will put the Slakoth's sickness into remission. Solo Norman, and stay in battle for the entire Tate/Liza battle. Once these are done, you may evolve to a Vigoroth.

Once the evolution is complete, the sickness has gone into remission. All of the restrictions from the Slakoth stage are gone. However, the sickness has left the Vigoroth too weak to ever evolve into Slaking.

Too easy? Too hard? Let me know!
 
Organization Member XIV I'd like to provide your starter.

First of all, you get to choose which one to use, but you must do so before selecting its nickname and restrictions (yes, I'm being serious here). The way this is going to go is that you get to choose how your starter will be limited/challenged through the use of a point-buying system. Since you're requesting medium difficulty, I'll give you 4 points to use; the amount each option takes away is displayed on the hide tag.
First of all, the nickname (choose one, obviously). Each comes with two restrictions:
Your starter may not use damaging moves until damage is dealt to it by the opponent. Moves that have beneficial secondary effects are unusable. Moves that have passive effects, like moves that hit multiple times or moves with high critical hit rates, can be used, though.
May not battle wild Pokemon. The move used to finish Nohr's last fight can't be used for its next two trainer battles.

Next is how fainting will affect your starter (again, choose only one):
Your starter has no restrictions about being revitalized.
Your starter can only be revived by Pokemon Centers 3 times per center. Also, it can never be deposited into the PC.
After your first rival battle, your starter has a life system as follows: starts with 2 lives, and 1 is added whenever you get a badge. Run out of lives, and your starter must enter every battle with no more than half health (don't worry if you picked Nohr as the nickname, you can spam useless moves against wild Pokemon and then run away if this occurs).

Finally, a couple miscellaneous restrictions (choose only one):
May not battle Gym Leaders or villainous team leaders.
May not battle Gym Leaders or villainous team leaders. All 4 of its moves must fall under different contest categories ASAP. Also, its STAB moves can't be used when the last digit of its level is 4-9.
The only healing items it will accept are herbs and berries. If a teammate's HP bar goes red, the starter must switch in on the following turn, regardless of its own health. Exceptions to this are if it conflicts with an above restriction (or the starter is fainted).


May the If be with you.
