Thanks! No worries about the wait, I actually just finished my Y playthrough so the timing is perfect! I got STARAPTOR, DUSKNOIR, TROPIUS, WHISCASH, PURUGLY, GOLEM! I guess this can work. I'm not very fond of rock types though, so Golem will be a problem as I don't really know how he works! Well. It's a challenge. There is some trading to be done (Purugly and Golem) but the rest can be found in-game!
I will update shortly.

Purugly/Glameow require Pokebank transfer, so if you can't find a trade partner for that, you're free to contact me and I can get you one. I managed to get all the Pokebank stuff (bar legendaries, of course) and I've been trading those for free pretty much.

I'm afraid not. The gen IV one is long gone. I make a new one every time a new game comes out, because I want this challenge to be for the most recent game to provide the most variety. I'm sorry. :(

You'll like it. I love using mine.

Anyway, super micro update. I have five badges. I just haven't found the time to update since almost every time I look at the thread, I'm the last poster and I don't wanna edit anything. I have the same team pretty much, except I have a Reuniclus now. I doubt my movesets are much different from my last update. So yeah, I'll probably post a more detailed update after the next party member, which should be Klefki. I'm really bored of the same four.

Update #1

Well, I'm a little ways into this challenge so thought I'd post an update. I started out with Chespin, since I need the roaming Articuno when I beat the game.

I sped through the first part of the game and the first gym so I could get to Lumiose and pick up my Bulbasaur, who I named Albus. Soloed with him for a while, which was a little harder than I expected because he was slightly under-leveled.

Eventually made it to route 8 where I caught an Inkay to add to my team, who I named Minerva. She has contrary as an ability, which I'm really liking because it makes all stat changes have opposite effects. This means every time I'm up against something with Intimidate or who tries using Sand Attack a million times in a row, it makes those battles much less frustrating.

Made my way to Cyllage city and caught myself an Eevee who I nicknamed Filius and evolved into a Flareon as soon as I added him to my party. Thankfully found him at level 19 so I only needed to level him up to 20 to get Fire Fang and didn't have to wait for another fire attack.

Beat Grant quite handily, thanks to Albus being about level 27 by that point.

Passed through Geosenge town and on to route 11 where it took me WAY longer than it should have to find and catch a Stunky. I accidentally KO'd the first one with a critical hit and then another critical hit with Razor leaf KO'd a hoard of them.

Finally found another hoard (unfortunately they're only level 11) and managed to capture one for my team, whom I have named Severus.

Leveled him up in Reflection cave to catch him up with the rest of my team.

I also picked up a Nidorino to use temporarily as an HM slave.

Got to Shalour City and defeated Calem for the Mega Ring. I'm now currently outside the city in Route 12 searching in vain for a Heracross to add to my team before I go challenge Korrina.

Current Team:



Albus ♂ lvl. 34
Sassy | Overgrow
Double-Edge
Poison Powder
Leech Seed
Petal Dance

Minerva ♀ lvl. 33
Brave | Contrary
Reflect
Payback
Hypnosis
Psybeam

Filius ♂ lvl. 33
Relaxed | Flash Fire

Fire Spin
Bite



Severus ♂ lvl. 30
Quiet | Aftermath
Thief

WeightyWillBill your types are:

Update #2

Put this game aside for a little bit while I finished my Pokedex in X but recently started back up and have done a fair amount since my last update.

Finally did catch myself a Heracross (after far too long searching).
Korrina didn't put up too much of a fight.
Neither did Ramos (Filius won that gym single-handedly), Clemont or Valerie (thanks to Lapras's Perish Song).

I just defeated my rival in front of the Anistar gym and am now heading in to challenge Olympia for the Psychic Badge.

Sassy | Overgrow
Double-Edge
Poison Powder
Leech Seed
Petal Dance

Minerva ♀ lvl. 47
Brave | Contrary

Filius ♂ lvl. 47
Relaxed | Flash Fire
Baby-Doll Eyes
Fire Fang
Fire Spin
Bite


Severus ♂ lvl. 47
Quiet | Aftermath
Night Slash
Toxic
Flamethrower
Slash


Sybill ♀ lvl. 43
Docile | Water Absorb

So I started my journey by moving Torchic into my party as soon as I could, and trading a friend for a Bronzor egg. When I picked my starter, I picked Chespin, so my rival will have Fennekin, who will become super effective to my Blaziken. The first gym was pretty easy, especially with a Fire Type lead. I earned my first badge and moved on to catch a female Combee on the next route.

Team:
Spoiler:

Torchic
Lvl 15, Lonely
40/26/16/30/23/23
-Scratch
-Growl
-Focus Energy
-Ember


Bronzor
Lvl 13, Sassy
41/15/31/15/34/12
-Tackle
-Confusion
-Hypnosis
-Confuse Ray

Combee
Lvl 6, Jolly
20/9/10/8/10/14
-Sweet Scent
-Gust
