Everybody hates the ladder. But in this darkness there shines a light. This is that light: a brawl on the ladder to make even the most seasoned veterans anxious. Instead of a leisurely checklist, it's a competition to gather as many points as possible, for prize and glory.
Here are the rules:
  • All battles must take place on the Gen 7 UU ladder on Pokemon Showdown.
  • All challenge posts must be accompanied by a replay or a screenshot.
  • State every challenge you are applying for when you post a replay.
  • You cannot get multiple challenges from a single battle.
  • You must win the battle to pass the challenge.
  • Forfeits / Time-outs will only be counted if a single Pokemon is left remaining.
  • Your opponent must have at least 5 Pokemon on their team.
  • Be specific. If you don't tell me what achievements you've passed, I won't add them.
Each separate achievement falls into one of five tiers:
  • The Beginner Tier, worth one point per achievement. Players of any calibre should be able to accomplish these without even realizing.
  • The Silver Tier, worth two points. Slightly more difficult, but all the more worth it.
  • The Gold Tier, worth three points. These are the first ones to put challengers through their paces. These challenges also require 1300+ ELO, unless otherwise specified.
  • Platinum Tier, worth five points. Hard work will pay off, but only the best can complete these challenges. These challenges also require 1400+ ELO, unless otherwise specified.
  • The Ultimate Tier, the hardest of them all and worth ten points each. Nobody in their right mind would want to fall prey to these voluntarily.
Each challenge you undertake will add up to your running score. This will be kept track of in the leaderboard below.

If you're able to reach more than 200 Points, the prize is a full-size Gif Avatar of your choosing. If you do this again and hit a full 250 Points, you will receive a custom title for your efforts.

(Badged users, sorry. I guess you'll be able to brag?)

I'm gonna edit this stuff later-ish, but a note:
Gold and Platinum tiers have ELO requirements. I advise all of you to check which challenges you've done and to see if you meet the required ELO for them: 1300 for Gold, and 1400 for Platinum.

Perishing Song , Ultimate has no base since most of them would be pretty damn hard on their own, let alone at 1400+.

And for your week one update, the current leader is, unsurprisingly, Perishing Song, with thirty points. They are followed by DurzaOffTopic, with 22, and Amane Misa, with 10.

All scores are current. Good luck!

In case y'all are wondering why Vivalos was liking all the posts, he's signed on as a co-host of the project. Stuff should be updated more often.

Also, the scores are updated up to here. Make a new post for your challenges.
