The Move Challenge



What's this challenge?

The Move Challenge is fairly simple. After you join, I assign you six random moves. As you play through the game, you must teach each one of your pokemon one of these moves. This can be fun and tedius as I may give you a great move, a generic move, or a useless move.



Rules
  1. Before you enter the Elite Four, all six of your pokemon must have learned the move they must have.
  2. Once your pokemon learns its move, it can NEVER forget the move.
  3. Legendaries are not allowed. Feel free to catch them, however.
  4. The pokemon must learn its move by level-up. For example, you may NOT teach Thunderbolt by TM.
  5. Emulators are allowed.
  6. When using an emulator, screenshots aren't just welcome, they're recommended!
  7. Ultimate Challenges are allowed and recommended for enhanced fun.
  8. No hacking or cheating.
  9. You must have your first pokemon by at least the 2nd gym. After that, your starter gets boxed unless it will learn a move.
  10. How to beat each region:
  • RBY/FRLG: The Elite Four is defeated.
  • GSC/HGSS: Red is defeated.
  • RSE: The Elite Four is Defeated.
  • DPP: The Elite Four is defeated.
  • BW: Champion Alder is defeated.

okay that's fair I'll use these pokemon for my team:

1. Uproar - Dodrio
2. Lick - Granbull
3. Psychic - Xatu
4. Morning Sun - Espeon
5. Sweet Scent - Vileplume
6. Guillotine - Kingler

krabby can be obtained the 2nd gym, so I can see it working.
oh wait, a question, does the pokemon with uproar have to be obtained before the 2nd gym? if so then I'll change it to noctowl although I prefer dodrio.

  2. Wing Attack
  3. Rapid Spin
  4. Constrict
  5. Agility
  6. Transform

No problem. ;]
  1. Flamethrower
  2. Magical Leaf
  3. Light Screen
  4. Astonish
  5. Rock Slide
  6. Ice Beam



Time for my update.

  • So, I started up Emerald
  • Named myself Sire

  • I adjusted my clock to the right time
  • Then I visited May
  • I then saved Professor Birch, picking Treecko

  • Nicknamed Treecko Thasos
  • After killing one and tediously trying to get a decent nature, I finally caught a Ralts with a Naive nature, which I thought was good enough (found 6 Seedots and only 3 Ralts)
  • Nicknamed him Complectus

  • Helped out Wally, then went through Petalburg Forest, beating the Team Aqua member
  • Obtained Cut
  • Beat Roxanne

  • In the process, Thasos evolved into Grovyle

  • Caught a Taillow with a good nature after two tries, nicknamed Hirundo

  • Helped out the Devon guy again, beating the Team Aqua member for the second time

  • Got Steven's letter and the Pokenav
  • Defeated May

  1. Megahorn - Nidoking
  2. Wing Attack - Pidgeot/Scyther
  3. Rapid Spin - Blastoise/Starmie
  4. Constrict - Tentacruel
  5. Agility - Pidgeot/Raichu/Hitmonchan
  6. Transform - Ditto (wow. just wow.)

Generators fault, sorry man. xD

I can change Transform to Iron Tail. Transform should probably be ruled out, anyways. I was hoping for diversity and the last thing I want allowed is a move that only one pokemon can learn. ;]

I suppose Rapid Spin could be replaced for Pursuit. Now that I think of it, its effect is useless and the only thing I really see it is for is making sure that you keep your starter.

Constrict, can't do nothing about. Effect works, even it if isn't too good.

Thanks for bringing those moves to my attention.

Iron Tail is the same, though, since Onix is the only one in my game that can learn it by level up, so I'll take Pursuit and leave Rapid Spin in there, if you don't mind.

So that means my planned team is now:
  1. Megahorn - Nidoking
  2. Wing Attack - Pidgeot
  3. Rapid Spin - Blastoise
  4. Constrict - Tentacruel
  5. Agility - Jolteon
  6. Pursuit - Tauros

Alright, wrosk for me.

You guys really don't have to tell me your team, haha. I trust you. What's the point of playing a challenge if you cheat or don't follow the rules?

So, looking at my moves and planning my team, I noticed that Rain Dance was introduced in Generation 2, so I can't learn it in Blue...

Other than that, there's a fair amount of overlap - I could have three Butterfree on my team...

Yeah, Blue is pesky.

Then use Hypnosis, instead.

UPDATE

just finished bugsy and got my second gym badge. folkner was pretty easy, but bugsy was a NIGHTMARE with that scyther of his. seriously. u-turn took a chunk of health off krabby each time, and twice I was in a scenario where krabby had half of it's HP left and scyther had a tiny little bit, but scyther used u-turn and got a critical hit. so damn annoying. I got him down in the end though. :D
now that we can move on, krabby's not too far off learning guillotine. I can also obtain oddish now, so that should cover sweet scent.

TEAM

Krabby - Level 20 // Mud Shot, Bubblebeam, Vicegrip, Metal Claw

Flamethrower, Magical Leaf, Light Screen, Astonish, Rock Slide, Ice Beam... WOW. What a list! I really got lucky with those moves.

Two questions though - firstly, what's the rule about moves learned by Heart Scale? Strictly speaking they ARE level-up moves, but I wondered if they were disallowed.

Secondly, is it ok to trade across all of my team at Lv.1 before the 1st Gym?

My team will be picked from the following (all Pokemon I want to raise, which I can trade over right at the start):


Flamethrower – Ninetales
Magical Leaf – Tropius
Light Screen – Starmie
Astonish – Stantler
Rock Slide – Tyranitar
Ice Beam – Glalie
