The Gimmick Pokémon Challenge
Hello everyone and welcome to my first challenge; 'The Gimmick Pokémon Challenge'.
The main rule of this challenge is to have a team that consists of gimmick Pokémon.

Don't know what gimmick Pokémon are? According to Bulbapedia:
''Gimmick Pokémon is a term for a Pokémon that usually possesses at least one (or usually more) of the following characteristics:
*Has a movepool limited to very few moves.
*Has a unique Ability.
*Is considered by some to have been made to introduce a game mechanic.

* HM Slaves are allowed, however, they cannot be a gimmick Pokémon.
* Duplicate Pokémon are not allowed.
* You may hack/trade your Pokémon.

So can we evolve any of these Pokemon such as Feebas or Eevee, or do we have to use the basic forms?

Feebas and Eevee for example may not evolve, because they aren't gimmick anymore once they evolved and they are not in the list. Pokemon like Shellos and Deerling may evolve 'cause their evolutions are in the list.

Added Hard Mode and adjusted some rules.
