Eh, its been a while since I made one of these guys, so I figured I would make a new one.

Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald DuoSpecies Challenge

I've been participating and creating challenges ever since I first joined PC. They've been one of the greatest experiences about being a member of PC. However, I don't usually compete or create monospecies or monotype challenges. I usually create a DuoSpecies challenge. DuoSpecies Challenges were one of the first challenges I competed in (for GSC). It was pretty fun tearing through Red with a Typhlosion and an Aipom. I decided to create a R/S/E DuoSpecies Challenge that you guys can enjoy (and that I can enjoy as well ^^)

Here's the basic rules of the thread:



Don't flame other people in this thread.
Sign up for which two families Pokemon you want in your first post (unless you have questions about the challenge.) Also tell us what game you will be using (Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald.) (e.g., Skip Shot(Ruby)- Torchic and Shroomish families).
Keep in mind that this is a DuoSpecies, not a DuoPokemon challenge. That means you can use more than 1 Pokemon from your species. (e.g., I can use 3 Blazikens and 3 Brelooms against the Elite 4).
You should post a log of your current progress in your game at least once a week. I'll send around PMs to those who don't. If I don't get a reply within a month, you're out of the challenge. No exceptions.
With each log, post your character name, how many badges you have, your Pokemon levels and moves, and any HM slaves you may have with their levels and moves.
When your challenge is complete, post all of the above, and the game time. There may be a small banner/sig pic I can give out to the fastest trainer.
If you have completed the challenge, and are disappointed with your time, feel free to go again. The faster of your game times will be posted on the leaderboard.

As for the challenge itself:


You may sign up for two Pokemon posted below. These Pokemon will be in your team at all times from the point you catch them.
Emulators can be used to play the game. No cheat codes are allowed.
Up to 4 HM slaves are allowed to be used. If they gain a level, they are no longer considered an HM slave, and must be removed from your party as soon as possible.
No Pokemon besides your HM slaves and the Pokemon you signed up for may be on your team at any time.
Your challenge ends when you have won 35 straight Battle Tower matches (R/S) or have obtained at least 2 Silver Symbols (Emerald). The Battle Factory counts as one Symbol, even though it uses rental Pokemon.
The Pokemon allowed can be caught up to the Trick House. Any Pokemon catchable only past the Trick House will not be allowed. To clarify, a list of available Pokemon is shown below (basic forms):

Treecko
Mudkip
Torchic
Poochyena
Zigzagoon
Wurmple
Wingull
Lotad
Seedot
Ralts
Marill
Surskit (Ruby Only)
Taillow
Shroomish
Slakoth
Whismur
Nincada
Skitty
Magikarp
Mawile (Ruby Only)
Tentacool
Makuhita
Zubat
Aron
Sableye
Geodude
Electrike
Gulpin
Plusle
Minun
Abra
Oddish


Trading from another game is not allowed. Breeding is not enocuraged, but acceptable. However, ANY POKEMON OF YOUR SPECIES THAT GETS AN EGG MOVE FROM BREEDING IS NOT ALLOWED FOR THE CHALLENGE. For example, you cannot use a Mudkip that was hatched with Curse.
Although trading Pokemon in from another game is not allowed, you MAY trade a Pokemon to another game and back in order to evolve it.(Geodude and Abra families only).
When you get to the Battle Tower/Frontier, there are challenges that my require you to have three Pokemon. If that is the case, you may use a third Pokemon, but only if it abides by all of the above rules.

Have fun, and I hope you enjoy the challenge!!

This looks fun. I might try it after I finish my normal mono in Ruby (FUN!).
I'll think about what I'll use as I finish my normal MTC.

I have to finish my MonoSpecies challenge first but I'm almost done.

I'll try this in Emerald with the lotad family and the abra family (as long as I can evolve the kadabra), if not, I will take the electrike family.

Yeah, I haven't checked this thread in a while. Bite Me. ><

So, just to make sure I'm up to speed, uhhh has signed up, and skythurwhatever(too long to type -.-) is also in. Riku is also in, and since you should only have your HM slaves out in battle while revitilazing both your Pokemon, I don't see any reason as to why they should level up by accident, so no.

Potato is currently the quickest, by far. I got caught up playing Shiny Gold, so nothing new as of yet. However, with school wrapping up, I'll have plenty of time to catch up.

Well, I have an Emerald Cart sitting around here somewhere..
So I'll join this challenge.

And I'll make it hard on myself.
My two pokémon, Respectively, will be..
Wurmple and Wurmple.
[I intend to have a Dustox and Beautifly.. So yeah.]
I'll update in Approximately two, to three hours time.

Update numero uno.

----------------
Name: Akera
Playtime: 1:01
----------------

- Began game
- Picked Treecko as starter [More challenge..]
- Beat May on Route 103
- Obtained Pokédex
- Obtained Pokéballs
- Caught Wurmple (F) - Docile, Lv.4, Nicknamed Flutter
- Trained Flutter (Wurmple) To Lv.7
- Flutter Evolved into Cascoon.

Team:
Flutter (Cascoon) - Lv.7
- Tackle
- String Shot

Next update may take a while, since Silcoon/Cascoon evolutions are determined by personality values, and getting one to evolve into Silcoon may take a while.

Does shedinja count?
He technically 'evolves' from nincada sooo...
Also, if I do that, can I keep ninjask as a HM slave? I promise I won't level him past 20.

If I get the ok, I'll do torchic and nincada/ninjask.
If not, I'll do it anyway, I just won't report into the thread.

I'll probably fail either way on the first gym, but what the hey XD

Since Nincada can evolve into either Ninjask or Shedinja, both are allowed. A Species challenge involves all Pokemon that evolve from the basic Species, so you could have 3 Blazikens, a Shedinja, and 2 Ninjasks, as long as none of them have egg moves (rules in this challenge ban egg moves).

Which game are you using?

Awesome, I already started.

I'm using Ruby BTW.
And heres my update:

Team:
Cluck (Torchic - Level 14)
Nincada - Level 12

I snuck past all the trainers and used a couple of repels to reach the area with nincada withput torchic getting miles ahead on experience. XD
I forget if you can name your shedinja after it appears.
Anyone know?

Just a quick question- with your game, you can use two Pokemon in the Battle Tower, not 3. Is that right?

Anyways... who wants an update? XD

-Subbed out Electrike for a Tropius, since Tropius could learn Fly as well as Electrike's HMs.
-Beat the noobs known as Team Magma at the Weather Institute.
-Taught Blaziken Hidden Power. After testing it on a Kecleon, I concluded that it was HP Electric 47. The power is kinda sad, but the type is great.
- Killed Winona and got her badge.
- Cleared out Mount Pyre of those pesky Magma Grunts
- Beat May at Lilycove.
-Went on a catching spree at the Safari Zone.
-Caught a Wailmer to use Dive/ Waterfall.
-Beat the Mossdeep Gym.
-Beat Team Magma at the Underwater Cavern place.
- Caught Groudon! :)
- Swept Wallace with my Breloom.
-Got through Victory Road.

As of now, I'm currently prepping to face the Elite 4. I deposited all of my HM slaves, but I'll write them below.

Just had a look at Aron on Serebii, and think I could have a better skillset with him then I could with torchic, and aggron is miles better than Blaziken.
And I've been doing pretty crappy ATM.
So sorry, but ahmma start again with nincada and aron if thats okay :3

I sand-attacked Roxanne into oblivion, then attacked her loads.
I had to 'kill' her geodude like... 4 times cos she kept healing it.
I ended up running out of PP for Leech Life and Fury Swipes and finally won with 6 PP left on scratch x-x
But apart from the huge amount of time it took, it wasn't too difficult.
Went to dewford
Caught an aron
Am about to battle brawly.

I've also got a ninjask identical to Coffin that I am planning on shoving in a box later.
Coffin's crappy moveset came from me making an ideal moveset for nincada.
Which changes compeltely when it evolves to shedinja -.-

Brawly was hideously easy this time round, beating him on my first try with neither of my pokemon dying.
Delivered Letter to Steve, then made my way to slateport.
Delivered 'Goods'
Beat first level of the trick house.
Currently about to fight May, who I've already attempted three times.
My plan is to mudslap the HELL out of wailmer and combusken, then switch to shedinja, double team the HELL out of him, then easy going from then on :3
But Combusken keeps OHKOing Bishop with double kick before I have a chance D:
I think I'll train some more...

Alright, there isn't much to update, but I'll keep you posted on what I'm doing.

Turns out the Battle Tower requires 3 Pokemon to battle with. In order to keep in the species rule, I'm going to see if I can get a Shroomish, Breloom, and Blaziken in. In the meantime, I've been randomly going around growing Berries, winning Contests, etc.

Name: Costa
Time: 36:45

Pokemon:

Blaziken lvl 65 (Magnet)
Flamethrower
Earthquake
Hidden Power Electric
Sky Uppercut

Breloom lvl 65 (Lax Incense)

Focus Punch
Double Team
Leech Seed
Toxic

I'll be updating the leaderboard.

I'll update the leaderboard. I'm still trying to breed for a Shroomish with good IVs. So far, its not going well. Other than that, I've achieved Master Ranks and gotten paintings in 4 of 5 Contest Types. Since my Pokemon for the challenge have remained unchanged since last time, no Pokemon need to be added.

Beat wattson on first try :p

Well, not much of an update here. I altered Breloom's moveset a bit (it gained a level while breeding in the Day Care), and decided to throw in a filler Pokemon instead of attempting to breed a good Shroomish. I got to the second fight before a bad call on my part in the third battle: I had Breloom Double Team, and Mightyena was able to hit with Iron Tail. Since Breloom was at low health, it died. Blaziken took care of Mightyena, but a Crawdaunt came in and ran through Blaziken with Crabhammer. My filler Pokemon (Dusclops) also fell pretty easily.

Here's the Battle Tower Squadron I'm working with (forced to the level 100 bracket, guess I need to level more).

Blaziken- level 67
Magnet
Flamethrower
Hidden Power Electric
Sky Uppercut
Earthquake

Breloom- lvl 66

Update:
Alakazam now level 61, same moveset
Gardevoir now level 61, same moveset

Attempted elite four several times and I kept losing because psychic moves do not affect the first trainer's pokemon, and the second trainer has moves that are super effective to my pokemon... so I decided it was time to take a break
and try to make some money so I could buy items...
Currently I have made $60000 with my "Bag Of Money" Technique :]
Will be updating soon. :]

Edit:
Now at $80000 with my "Bag of Money" technique [Not a glitch or hack, just ask, I will tell you how to do it ;]]
Gardevoir's and Alakazam's Psychic's both have 16/16 PP, that's 6 more than the original 10/10 PP.

What me and Potato have been doing is throwing in a random filler Pokemon that is untrained to use in battle. I added TMs to my filler Dusclops, I'm not sure what Potato did. However...


Posted by the rules
When you get to the Battle Tower/Frontier, there are challenges that may require you to have three Pokemon. If that is the case, you may use a third Pokemon, but only if it abides by all of the above rules.
The above rules are: no egg moves, no trading from another game unless it is for evolving, and it wasn't hacked. Leveling up is not encouraged, but is ok in this circumstance.

As for my update:

There's no way I can win 35 in a row with two lvl 66s and a lvl 50 Pokemon in the lvl 100 bracket. Therefore, Blaziken and Breloom have been getting up to 100 with some training at the E4 (I've beaten them about 10 times now lol).

I've also won all 5 types of Contests in the Master Rank. As a tribute, I'm not only going to post my Pokemon for the Battle Tower, but I will post all five winning Contest Pokemon that I used.

Pokemon:

Blaziken- lvl 71
Magnet
Flamethrower
Sky Uppercut
Hidden Power Electric (49)
Earthquake

Breloom- lvl 70
Lax Incense
Bulk Up
Facade
Iron Tail
Mach Punch

Dusclops- lvl 50
Quick Claw
Will-O-Wisp
Shadow Punch
Sunny Day
Ice Beam

Cute Contest Winner: Barboach- lvl 26
Mud-Slap

Cool Contest Winner: Absol- level 25

Tough Contest Winner: Mawile- level 53

Yeah, but breeding for a good Shroomish is proving to be hard. I attempted to complete it at first with a filler Dusclops, but it proved to do nothing. Once I get a good Shroomish egg, I'll be training it as well.

My training is going okay. I hope to have Breloom and Blaziken up to 100 by tomorrow. I have a few Shroomishes that I can use for breeding a good Shroomish as well.

Just out of curiosity- How'd you get Thunderpunch on Alakazam? Blaziken would prefer it over Hidden Power Electric 47 lol.

Also, try checking out what Alakzam's/Gardevoir's Hidden Powers are. If one of them has Fire/Dark, Shedinja isn't a problem anymore. You can buy them at Slateport iirc. Just make sure that you only forget moves that can be relearned by the Move Tutor in fallarbor, so you can replace it with Heart Scales and what not.

Right now, I'm grinding, and training up a good Shroomish I found for the Battle Tower. Blaziken and Breloom are both at level 77, the Shroomish is at level 38.

You have to get thunder punch in emerald.
If you have an Emerald Cartridge, trade your Blaziken over to it,
the Move Tutor @ Battle Tower teaches elemental punches...
Can Blaziken learn thunder punch though?

And I am just gonna teach latios fly for that soul purpose.

Alakazam and Gardevoir's movesets I don't want to alter

-Also - [/Random] I caught 21 Abras in order to get the twisted spoon. Lol.

Edit:
Woot. EV Training paid off.
Gardevoir/Alakazam both got effort ribbons :]

Edit2:

Oh My Gawsh! Yes!
Okay I was fighting shedinja and I had no movse that affected it
so I sent out latios and I used a move [that didn't effect] and just kept doing that
till it said "Shedinja is charging up sunlight" so I used protect and I protected all his attacks
until he had no more pp and he struggled to death! WOOT! OWNED!

Edit3:

Some future guidance for you guys doing the battle tower:
When fighting Cradile [or however you spell it.] He is a Tanker/Annoyer!
He used Giga Drain and has leftovers so his health goes up alot.
Your going to want to sweep him as fast as possible :]
Edit4:
It also has confuse ray so basically you kill yourself while he heals >.<

Alright, alot of updates for you guys! The leaderboard will be upgraded shortly, and we have one new trainer in.

I haven't played all weekend thanks to a water polo tourney. However, since I'm out for this week with an injury, I can use the time to catch up...

Dammit, that first gym was annoying D=

Curses. I had to stall everything out w/ my potions and my Nincada's Fury Swipes/Leech Life + Sand-Attack. Took a couple tries, but I got lucky.

Nincada lv 18 (Was lv 17. I picked on the bugs in the forest.)
Fury Swipes
Leech Life
Sand-Attack
Harden

SUCH A GOOD SET! No. Seriously, I'll probably have less trouble at next gym, though. What with Abra's forced nursing and all that trouble.

Mr. HM slave, because I am lazy and do not like cheese.

Treecko, using Cut.

Time? 2:07!

Edit! Caught an Abra with just a Pokeball, for some unholy reason - probably sheer luck. Currently training. Wait, make that two Abras D=. I did press START+SELECT+A+B, though... I think I've got more than I can handle, but whatever. Also caught another Nincada to train for Metal Claw and Dig.

That's about it.
Time: 2:34

Alright, so, I finally managed to find another surskit!!!! Took me a while to EV train him, even with a macho brace, but he's the first one that's been ev trained to a respectable extent. (did spend a little time on spinda's w/ my gardevoirs, but not a crap load.)

Things to do before next update:
Underwater Cavern
Groudon Event (Prolly just kill him for exp)
Beat Wallace
Navigate Victory Road
Beat wally...again
Make it to E4 lobby.

Currently training pokes for E4. Is level 55 good to start the e4 at, or should I get to level 60/65 first?

EDIT: Okay, they are both level 55 and I'm going to train using the elite four. I've used all my money on Revives/Full Heals/Full Restores/and Max Potions so I wont lose money if I lose to the e4.

I got really lucky in Granite cave. I'll say that.

Caught a Modest Abra... I'm so happy! Got it to level 16, it evolved into a Kadabra. I traded it over to another game and back into a 'Zam.

IVs are:
3-8 HP
25-31 Atk
4-9 Def
30-31 SpAtk (?!!)
0-4 SpDef
23-28 Speed

I'd say that those are decent for a freshly caught run-of-the-mill Abra. I'm planning to EV train him later. Time to spam Spindas... >=D

Okay, anyway. Pity this game doesn't have Focus Blast.

Beat up Mr. Brawly.
Delivered letter.
Got an Old Rod! >.>
Went to Slateport.
Spoke to Dock.
Outside museum right now.

Seriously, 'zam is overpowered. Confusion OHKOes everything that doesn't resist it. No joke D=.

Fury Swipes
Fury Cutter
Double Team
Screech

Shedinja lv 20
Same as above T_T, will start training soon

[email protected] lv 25 (This guy is being a pain to train, but I do need Metal Claw... don't I? Also electric-immune! Unfortunately, crappy IVs in everything but Speed, which is through the roof anyways)

-Had some fun with Battle Tent
-Went to Trick House for some fun

Pretty small update.
Beat 8th gym and got through victory road.
No difference in team except bishop is level 56 and coffin 55
Also, boat has waterfall now, but you probably coulda guessed that.

E4 gonna be a *****, cos the first battle will have to be exclusivly bishop.
Its a DARK battle, which all OHKO coffin D:

What are the other E4 members?
I hope its not gonna be entirely Bishop.
He's strong but can only take so much!
