Weakness Challenge
Weakness Challenge

Welcome to the Weakness Challenge! In this Challenge, you play any Pokemon game. Sounds nice and simple. BUT, you can only use Pokemon that are weak to a specific Pokemon! If you want a proper explaination, look at the rules.

- Only use Pokemon that your current Pokemon is weak to. So, if you have a Bulbasaur and you found a Growlithe, you catch the Growlithe. Then if you find a Tentacool you catch it. It goes on like that.This does not apply to HM slaves, so don't worry about that.
- The first rule does not apply to the Pokemons evolution, only its current state.

- You cannot replace any current Pokemon. Unless its a HM slave.
- No legendaries, even if your current Pokemon is weak to the legendary!
- Once your up to the E4, dump all HM slaves and use your diverse team.
- Screenshots are recommended, but small written updates are okay .
- If
you want to, you can have a no monotype challange.
- If you want more difficulty, you can try Ultimate mode where you go through all of the games.

Hello, Pika!

I just want to clarify some information about this challenge before I accept the challenge lol

Just so I make sure I understand this challenge:

Example of random pokemon:

I want to use the Crystal Version. So I start out with a Chikorita. If I run into a pidgey then I catch the pidgey. If I run into Pikachu then I catch the Pikachu. So on...

So I keep my special team but can use the HM move pokemon until I get to the Elite 4 and then I must beat the E4 with that special team?

Do I need to update every time I catch a new pokemon in the weakness line or just every once in a while?

This sounds like a really fun challenge! :3

Just to clarify, if I pick Tepig and evolve it before catching any other Pokemon, would I have to choose a Water, Rock, or Ground-Type, or would I be able to catch a Psychic or Flying-type?

Pokemon Yellow Update #1
I started out with Pikachu, named Pika, which gave me some troubles when facing against Brock's Gym. After leveling to level 19, I was finally able to beat Brock and pass through Mt. Moon. Once outside, I caught Spike, the Sandshrew. After that, I used Pika to make quick work of Misty's Gym. After this, I picked up Saur, the Bulbasaur, and made my way to Nugget Bridge. I easily defeated my rival. Next, I picked up Hippo, the Charmander, and proceeded to get the ticket from Bill. I saved there seeing as my SP was in the Red.

Current Time Played: 4:16

Current Team:
Pika the Pikachu
Level 28
-Quick Attack
-Double Team
Spike the Sandshrew
Level 8
Saur the Bulbasaur
Level 10
-Leech Seed
Hippo the Charmander
Level 12

Pokemon Yellow Update #2 (Finished)
I never actually realized that the Yellow E4 was that annoying. Admittedly, I went in there about 20 levels lower than anything else, but that Dragonite still wasn't supposed to hit a fully Evasive Pikachu 95% of the time with low accuracy moves. At any rate, after beating Gary twice (froze the first time I beat him), here is my final team.

Final Time Played:

Final Team:
Pika the Pikachu
Level 48
-Quick Attack
-Double Team
Spike the Sandslash
Level 50
Saur the Venusaur
Level 38
-Mega Drain
-Poison Powder
-Razor Leaf
Hippo the Charizard
Level 38
Smasher the Rhyhorn
Level 34
-Horn Attack
-Rock Slide
Ohmaster the Omastar
Level 44
-Spike Cannon
-Horn Attack
