THE SWITCH-OFF CHALLENGE
RULES:
1. Before the first gym, you are allowed to train and use only one Pokemon. Once you defeat the gym with it, it must be either released or permanently boxed. This rule applies for all gyms. eg. I use Squirtle until I beat Brock, then release it and use Pidgey until I defeat Misty and so on.
2. For the Elite Four, you can use one Pokemon for each member and one for the champion (five in total) but you must not send in any other Pokemon against the member. You can not send in another Pokemon to heal either.
3. If the designated Pokemon faints and you have other Pokemon in your party, you must let them die. They may NOT gain any experience.
4. HM slaves are cool, as long as you don't battle with them.
5. You may not reuse Pokemon. eg. If I used Pidgey between the first and second gym, I may not catch another pidgey and use it for the third gym.
For Emerald: The game doesn't end until you defeat Steven, who is treated as a gym leader.
For HG/SS: The game doesn't end until you defeat Red, who is treated as a gym leader.
For B/W: After the first elite four battle, you may only use one Pokemon for the final two battles against N and Ghetsis. The game doesn't end until you defeat the elite four twice, with Alder. You must use different Pokemon the second time. If you wish, you could beat Cynthia, treating her as a gym leader.

I think I want to do this on firered, just one question though. After beating the eighth gym leader, do I then train up 5 NEW pokemon for the elite four?

Game: Firered

Seems fun. May not get to it right away as I've been very busy lately :(

Also, I think I'll add a rule where after beating a gym, the next pokemon I use is the first pokemon I find on the nearest route. Of course, this rule will have to change for the elite four...

I'm gonna play on my AK2i, since my computer's broken.
I'm also going to do the E4 rematches.

We get to choose what Pokemon we use for each gym, right? If so, I already got my Pokemon planned.

Yes, 5 new Pokemon, and you do get to choose which Pokemon you use, Warrior Cat.

Fine, as long as it's in a box until then. Don't train it at all (run from all battles). By the way, in general, you should post frequent updates as to which Pokemon you're using. I'm currently using mudkip until the first gym.

I've beaten Bugsy, here's how it happened.
So far my Pokemon I've caught so far(of course, they are boxed).
Falkner - Geodude(Sprout Tower was hard )
Bugsy - Magnemite
Whitney - Croagunk
Jasmine - Cyndaquil(Typhlosion)
Pryce - Aron(Aggron)
Clair - Swablu(Altaria)
Karen(Round 1) - Torchic(Blaziken)
Lance(Round 1) - Gible(Garchomp)
Erika - Flareon(I already used the Fire Stone the the Sprout Tower Sage on him)
Lance(Round 2) - Bagon(Salamence)

- I started, named myself Storm.
- I picked with Cyndaquil, I also received Eevee from Cynthis in front of Mr. PKMN's house, boxed it..
- After the Mr. Pokemon part, I lost to ???(on purpose), named him Sacred.
- I caught Geodude on Route 46, solo'd with him until I beat Falkner.
- I caught a Magnemite on Route 32, solo'd with him until I beat Bugsy, I also received Torchic from a dude in Azalea's Pokemon Center.
- I also decided to catch a few Pokemon ahead of time on the way and boxed them.
- So, I caught a Bagon, Gible, and Aron in union cave, and Croagunk and Swablu on Route 33.

I'm sorry, I'm going to have to come back to this challenge. I really like this challenge and was having fun, but I reaally want to do the event, as I was unable to do the last one. And firered is my only free game :(

But I shall come back to this, probably next month! (so take me off the challengers list, and I'll resign up).

For added fun, I'll be playing the games in Japanese.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Gym Leaders
Spoiler:

1st Gym (Brock): Bulbasaur


2nd Gym (Misty): Pidgeotto


3rd Gym (Lt. Surge): Sandslash


4th Gym (Erika): Persian


5th Gym (Koga): Dugtrio


6th Gym (Sabrina): Marowak (Getting past that rival battle was annoying...)


7th Gym (Blaine): Lapras


8th Gym (Giovanni): Kabutops


Indigo Plateau
Spoiler:

Lorelei: Hitmonchan

Moveset Used:
Ice Punch
Thunder Punch
Strength
Fire Punch

Fight Comment:
She was overall easy to take down. Her Lapras gave me some troubles, but it only took me two tries to get her down.

--

Bruno: Golduck

Moveset Used:
Scratch
Confusion
Surf
Tail Whip

Fight Comment:
Nice, easy fight. I was able to quickly destroy everyone without any difficulty.

--

Agatha: Ninetales

Moveset Used:
Tail Whip
Quick Attack
Fire Blast
Confuse Ray

Fight Comment:
After jumping the gun and giving FireFox a Fire Stone before he could learn any decent moves, I decided that I'd just finish off her ghost type Pokemon with primarily tail whip, confuse ray, and a heck of a lot of Hyper Potions.

--

Lance: Dewgong

Moveset Used:
Headbutt
Blizzard
Surf
Aurora Beam

Fight Comment:
Once I got Gyarados down, it was an easy fight. Nothing really special about this one seeing as my ice moves took out most of Lance's dragons in one hit.

--

Green/Blue/*Insert Rival's Name Here*: Tauros

Moveset Used:
Tackle
Thunderbolt
Ice Beam
Stomp

Fight Comment:
This was a pretty easy fight. Even if I was only able to get his Rhydon down in one hit, Tauros was able to take all of the hits thrown at him with ease.


FINAL COMMENTS:
This was a fun challenge. I enjoyed battling with some Pokemon that I usually wouldn't use and planning out movesets to best take out the Pokemon that I had to go up against. Fairly grindy, but nothing that a speed button couldn't fix. Overall, I'm up for a round two...

...Those last three guys were kinda painful. Ah well, made it through eventually...

Spoiler:

Pokemon Used: Miltank

Moves Used:
Rollout
Milk Drink
Defense Curl
Body Slam

Fight Comments:
Rollout rock (pun intended). Once I got myself set up with XAttacks, I was able to take everyone out easily.

FINAL COMMENTS:
Out of all of the Pokemon I used this round, I have to say that using ditto was the hardest. Its stats and lack of PP made it tough due to the fact that some Rockets love to carry around self-destructing Koffings...

Edit: I'll be pulling out of this challenge on Ruby. I've hit a brick due to the Rival battle, and I don't feel like grinding that much.

I posted a long while ago, and in these days I've found some spare time to complete some of the challenges I have in-going. I was training a Lapras, it was Lv. 38, and once I cleared out Victory Road and did some spare training, it was at Lv. 55.

Lorelei didn't gave me much of a trouble. I won with several Thunderbolts and some crits.
Bruno was a piece of cake, Surf and Psychic ftw.
Agatha was pretty much easy, just the stronger Gengar gave me problems with Hypnosis.
Lance was easier than I thought, Thunderbolt and Ice Beam did miracles.
Gary was not too difficult, as I had almost a move for every one of his Pokèmon.

I ended the Pokèmon League with a Lv. 59 Lapras, same moveset as before: Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt. Just for fun, I went to the Cerulean Cave and defeated Mewtwo, in the process leveling up to 60. I'm done!
