View Full Version : The Non-Evolver Challenge (R/S/E)

September 8th, 2008, 02:28 PM
Well, after playing through R/S/E several times with barely used pokemon, I realized most of them were pokemon that did not evolve. Then, I came to Pokecommunity and saw all the challenge threads. My challenge to you is to make a team of non evolvers and play through the game.
Also note, if you participate, update periodically, whether it's just editing your post or detailing your progress. Whichever suits you best.

Q: What is a non evolver?
A: A pokemon that has no evolutionary line, such as minun. No, you cannot just give a pokemon an everstone. If it has potential to evolve, (in this generation) it cannot be used.

Q: Legendaries can't evolve, so why can't I use them?
A: It wouldn't be much of a challenge if you could use all legends. Plus, you get most of those late ingame anyway.

Here's a list of pokemon you can use:
Nosepass
Sableye
Mawile
Volbeat
Illumise
Roselia
Torkoal
Spinda
Skarmory
Zangoose
Seviper
Lunatone
Solrock
Castform
Kecleon
Tropius
Chimecho
Absol
Girafarig
Pinsir
Heracross
Relicanth
Corsola
Luvdisc

If you'd like to try it out, just post a reply in a similar format to the following:
Name:
Team:

Participants:
Name: Groudon
Team: Minun - Torkoal - Roselia - Sableye - Mawile - Absol

Name - BRAE
Team: Skarmory, Solrock, Absol, Castform, Nosepass, and Torkoal.

Name-MoonlightKnight
Team: Roselia, Luvdisc, Corsola, Solrock, Lunatone,and Skarmory

If you think it's a bad idea, please don't flame. I'm just tossing the idea out there for anyone who wants to try it. (I've used most of these pokemon in teams :) )

so what about our actual starter?
or do we box it away as soon as we catch one in the list?

You can use it until you catch one of the pokemon on the list. If you don't get it until mauville, let's say, then you can use whatever pokemon until then.

The first ones you can get are Mawile in Ruby and Sableye in Sapphire. Both are in Granite Cave in Dewford Town.

sdfs
September 9th, 2008, 02:50 PM
Yeah, but if you don't want to use them in your party, you could have to wait longer. (For example, take a team of seviper, minun, tropius, chimecho, skarmory and relicanth. The first pokemon you could get would be minun, so you could use whatever you needed to get by until then.)

well i believe that in emerald, a sableye could be found at the granite cave but its kinda rare... but still... i think the easiest way to beat this challenge is to trade w/ other.....

sdfs
September 9th, 2008, 04:20 PM
Yeah, trading could help (potentially), but you don't have to at all. Most of these pokemon can be organized in a way that they'll all be on one cartridge.

Eh sounds like fun!

Well i started and i picked mudkip. (its female so i can breed it when i beat the challange :D) I am in odale town now.

UPDATE - I beat roxanne with water gun and nosepass evolved my mudkip. I cant get any pf my pokemon until after mauville when i can use rock smash to get nosepass...

UPDATE - I caught my first pokemon besides my starter, nincanda for cut and flash. I skipped the second rival fight.

UPDATE - 3rd rival fight is hard since grovyle does 4x dmg with absorb.

Ugh, still training marshtomp for grovyle, im too lazy to train another pokemon. I am level 24.

UPDATED - Woot, i love mud-slap, i could take 3 asorbs before i got KOed so i kept mud slapping it and healing until it rarely hit then i tackled it 4 times and KOed him.

Hmm....If you can't beat her, I recommend a taillow. It seems to level at a decent rate, and once it learns peck or wing attack, you could probably ko her easily, plus afterwards you can keep it for an hm slave.

I got nosepass, i had to rock smash every rock in the dewford cave 3 times before i found him and i was lucky not to get a geodude. Its female so it will be easy to get a better nosepass. If im thinking correctly, torkal is next?

EDIT - Doh, forgot to fight brawly, oh well ill go back once i get fly...

EDIT - Well heres my nosepass current stats.
lvl 13 Nosepass
Ability - Magnet Pull

I get torkoal in fiery path right? Im pretty sure i can get him on emerald, because i cant find any, been wandering around in the path for quite a while.

EDIT - The second i posted i ran into one...

EDIT - Caught with my last pokeball, im making this a bit more challenging for me and catching all my pokemon with only pokeballs, no other balls. (actually im just too poor to buy other balls :P) BTW its a girl!

EDIT - Put torkoal in the daycare so while i use mach bike on the long path through mauville to vendenturf while i watch TV. Last update for today.

Nice challenge ^^ Usually I challenge myself by trying to catch them all in different kinds of balls (Like, pokeball, great ball, timer ball, net ball, dive ball, nest ball as an example for a team of caught pokemon)

Ok now this is really the last update today. :P Torkoal is 23 and Nosepass is 22.

UPDATE - Got skarmory and solrock, solrock made me use 14 pokeballs :(.

UPDATE - Did all the boring stuff, beat flannery :O)
It was a long battle, sent out Nosepass, Nosepass got KOed by Numel by a Magnitude 10. Torkoal KOed Numel with body slam. Body slam got Camerupt into the red, overheat KOed me, Cameupt healed. Camerupt KOed my whole team except Marshtomp, Nincada, a level 20 Skarmory and a lvl 14 Solrock. Skarmory KOed camerupt with a few lucky steel wings. Next out was Torkoal, he KOed skarmory, so i knew i couldnt win at that point and i refused to use Marshtomp, as he is not part of my challange, he is a HM slave. I sent him out and was planning to use constant oran berries on myself as he attacked until i eventually died, he used Overheat and KOed me, which makes no sense how a FIRE type 1 level lower than me killed me, a WATER type, with a FIRE move, but thats not the point. So i sent out my level 14 solrock aginst a level 29 Torkoal, I used confusion as i entered the battle, it used overheat, missed, i used confusion, it became confused, hurt itself, i used confusion, it hurt itself, i used confusion, it hurt itself, i used confusion, it snapped out of confusion and used body slam i think to take away half my HP, i used confusion, she healed, i used ether on confusion, torkoal used overheat and missed, i used confusion, it became confused and hurt itself, i used confusion, it hurt itself, it used an attack leaving me at 3 hp i didnt take the chance to heal, as torkoal was almost dead so i used confusion, it hurt itself, i used confusion, it hurt itself, i healed with a super potion, it hit me, then i used confusion, and it KOed itself next turn. So a level 14 Solrock beat a gym leaders level 29 Torkoal. It was all luck. Screenshot attached for proof, i think that proves it. Im kinda pissed it only leveled me once though. (almost twice)

Norman's not too bad. He has no resistances but ghost, and his team isn't all that great. You just have to be careful of counter or focus punch.

When i first played the game his slaking destroyed my lvl 34 Breloom. And mach punch didnt do much even though it was super effective, i dont really have many good moves on my pokemon. Ill try to get solrock up though and get psychic from the casino place in mauville.

Well, if I'm not mistaken, solrock has a higher attack than special attack, but Slaking has a lower special defense than defense. That might help you.

Name: Zero

Team:
Sableye
Torkoal
Skarmory
Nosepass
Girafarig
Heracross

This will take some time considering you cant get most of them that early in the game.

Also can I use others before a get my team? Like could I use roselia or plusle until I got my team filled?
