Hello there, welcome to this new challenge! Unlike most challenges around here, you will not be following one specific set of rules. Rather, the rules tend to change during the game! There will be nine different sets of challenge rules. You start with one set of rules, but you have to switch to another set of rules after every gym, up until you beat the Elite Four. This means you will have played with 9 different sets of rules during your game.
The sets of rules are:
You have to choose one type. You can only battle using Pokemon of your chosen type, until you beat the next gym.
Every Pokemon that faints is considered dead and must be released, or permanently boxed. This remains into effect until you have beaten the next gym. (Pokemon that fainted during this period may NOT be taken out of the box after the next gym, you cannot use them anymore in the whole playthrough.)
3) No item:
You are not allowed to use any kind of item (except HM or key item), until you have beaten the next gym.
You may not use any fully evolved Pokemon. This means that all Pokemon in your team should still be able to evolve, but are not allowed to evolve in the meanwhile.
You must choose one color. Use only Pokemon of that color to battle.
Choose one Pokemon. Use only that Pokemon to play and beat the next gym.
7) Gender lock:
You may use only Pokemon from oneg ender, or only genderless Pokemon.
Your Pokemon may only use moves of their own type. For example, Pidgey may only use Normal or Flying type moves.
The Pokemon in your team must be in alphabetical order. For example, if you have a team of Abra, Bonsly, Carvanha, Carnivine, Zubat and Feraligatr, the order of your party would be: Abra, Bonsly, Carnivine, Carvanha, Feraligatr, Zubat. They should also be sent out in this order. So if Abra faints, Bonsly must be sent out next.
Now, there are a few ways you could play this challenge. Firstly, you could choose the rules yourself, taking any order you want. Secondly, you could use a randomizer to randomize the rules, which adds a little bit of a surprise. If you can think of anything else, let me know!
1) No cheating.
2) The run ends after beating the league in all games. It is optional to do the postgame, this includes Kanto in G/S/C or HG/SS.
3) You must use every set of rules exactly one time. (Exactly two if you want to do the Kanto section of G/S/C or HG/SS.
