    I may run this challenge myself, may not, but since I think it's a good idea I'm going to post the rules in case someone is interested. It will require video of the battle being uploaded, so there is a limitation on the games that could be used for it.

    Cute, Cool, and Clever Challenge

    All pokemon are allowed, yes, even the legendaries and event pokemon. The actual winner of a match is determined by a point system, the point totals carry from match to match if done in a tiered tournament matchup style. The points earned are as follows:

    Knocking out opponent's pokemon - 1 point each one knocked out.

    Cuteness factor - 2 points for every cute pokemon (determined before the challenge is started) used in battle. If a pokemon is not put into battle, it doesn't count for cuteness.

    Cool factor - 1 point for every every multi-turn attack, such as fly, even if the attack fails. Up to 10 points.

    Style factor - 1 point for every HM or TM move used, up to 5 points.

    Clever factor - 2 points for every pokemon chosen with a type that is more powerful than the opponent's type. Up to 10 points can be earned. Only the first one swapped out between knock outs counts though.

    Strategy factor - 1 point for every move that has both damage and status effect, up to 5 points.

    Class factor - 2 points for every combination of a move with only status effect followed by any other move. Restoration moves count as the status only effect move. Up to 10 points can be earned with this.

    Epicosity - any one hit KO that is done with only damage, meaning the move has no inherent chance of a one hit KO, will earn 5 points. The move must cause as much, or more, damage than the target's maximum HP to count. 15 points can be earned this way.

    The rules are a bit simpler:

    Only one swap out between knock outs for the player who's pokemon is not knocked out without a penalty. Any other swap outs will cause a loss of 3 points each.

    ..... and that's it. Again, I may start this challenge myself later on, but in case someone else wants to do it, go ahead and have fun.
    If you add me, please message me so I can reciprocate. No, garbage does not make a cute Pokemon, and it smells funny.
