The Sun and Moon Challenge

With another new generation of Pokémon games on the horizon, I figured why not make a challenge in honor of them. In this challenge, you have to use a team themed around either the sun or the moon, as described below. But fist, here are the rules:

  1. Only games from Generation III and onward are allowed, as are any Dex/Difficulty hacks.
  2. Legendary and Mythical Pokemon are not allowed.
  3. HM slaves are allowed.
  4. You are allowed to hack in any Pokémon that isn't normally obtainable in your chosen game.
  5. You must have at least one member of your planned team by the time you reach the second gym.
  6. The challenge ends when you:
    • Defeat Blue (FR/LG)
    • Defeat Red (HG/SS)
    • Defeat Steven (R/S/OR/AS)
    • Defeat Wallace (E)
    • Defeat Cynthia (D/P/Pt)
    • Defeat Alder (B/W)
    • Defeat Iris (B2/W2)
    • Defeat Diantha (X/Y)


And now, here are the Pokémon requirements:

Sun
  1. Solrock
  2. Any Pokémon that evolves with or from a Sun Stone.
  3. Any Pokémon that can only evolve in the morning or during the day in games that have a Morning/Day/Night cycle.
  4. Any Pokémon that can learn any of Morning Sun, Sunny Day, or Solarbeam by leveling up (must permanently have the move as soon as it can learn it).
  5. Any Pokémon that can only be caught in the morning or during the day in games that have a Morning/Day/Night cycle.
  6. Any Fire-type Pokémon.

Moon
  1. Lunatone
  2. Any Pokémon that evolves with or from a Moon Stone.
  3. Any Pokémon that can only evolve at night in games that have a Morning/Day/Night cycle.
  4. Any Pokémon that can learn any of Moonlight, Moonblast, or Night Shade by leveling up (must permanently have the move as soon as it can learn it).
  5. Any Pokémon that can only be caught at night in games that have a Morning/Day/Night cycle.
  6. Any Dark-type Pokémon.

I think that covers everything, so here's the sign up form:

Username:

Sun or Moon:
Single or Ultimate:

And since this is my thread, I'll be the first to sign up:

Username: Luigi-San

    It means any Pokémon that can only be caught at a certain time of day in Gold, Silver, Crystal, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver (though you aren't restricted to those games).

        Clarification on "any Pokémon that can only be caught at a certain time of day in Gold, Silver, Crystal, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver (though you aren't restricted to those games)":

        Only can be caught at a certain time of day through the entire game? (To take a random example, Wooper can be found in Ruins of Alph and Union Cave at any time of day via surfing in GSC, but can only be found in other parts of the game at night. Is it qualified or disqualified?)

                      I finished my Sun Challenge run!

                      Spoiler:
                      Solrock, Lv. 70 - Stone Edge, Psychic, Fire Blast, Solar Beam
                      Heliolisk, Lv. 70 - Thunder, Razor Wind, Surf, Dragon Tail
                      Roserade, Lv. 70 - Petal Dance, Sludge Bomb, Shadow Ball, Dazzling Gleam
                      Espeon, Lv. 70 - Psychic, Morning Sun, Dazzling Gleam, Bite
                      Ledian, Lv. 70 - Bug Buzz, Aerial Ace, Focus Blast, Dig
                      Delphox, Lv. 72 - Blast Burn, Psychic, Solar Beam, Shadow Ball


                      And since there is still plenty of time before Sun and Moon come out, I think I'll go ahead and try a Moon Challenge.

                        Now seeing as the only mon I could legitimately have by the league is Nidoking, I will hack the rest in the first few routes. I also plan on doing these in order so Soul Silver is next.

                        Finished my Fire Red Moon challenge in a day. Perks of the flu I guess?
                        My final team was:
                        Spoiler:
                        1. Lunatone Lv58
                        2. Nidoking Lv59
                        3. Sneasel Lv58
                        4. Dusclops Lv58
                        5. Noctowl Lv57
                        6. Sharpedo Lv57

                        All in all, this was a fun challenge and I am super looking forward to Johto.

                            Finished Soul Silver after the elite four grind/ psycho pass binge. I forgot that all of Red's team was in the 80's in the remakes so I had to challenge him twice.
                            My final team was:
                            Spoiler:
                            • Lunatone Lvl80
                            • Gliscor Lvl81
                            • Gengar Lvl80
                            • Clefable Lvl82
                            • Cacturne Lvl79
                            • Houndoom Lvl79
