The Monosize Challenge

In this challenge, you will venture to complete a game using Pokémon that all belong to a certain height/weight class, defined as such:

The Classes


XS Class: 0.1m-0.9m and/or 0kg-20.0kg

S Class: 1.0m-1.2m and/or 20.1kg-35.0kg

M Class: 1.3m-1.5m and/or 35.1kg-60.0kg

L Class: 1.6m-1.9m and/or 60.1kg-120.0kg

XL Class: At least 2.0m and/or At least 120.1kg

(See the Refernce Material section below for all the individual class lists, as well as the combined Compendium)



The Rules

1. The challenge is complete once the credits roll for the first time, except:

-in G/S/C, in which Red must be defeated at Mt. Silver
-in HG/SS, in which the E4/Champion must be rematched after obtaining all 16 badges

2. A minimum of 3 viable team member is required, unless that amount is not legally obtainable before the end of the challenge.

(That being said, more than 3 is highly encouraged)

3. Using pre-evolutions of a Pokémon in your chosen class is fine, as long as you evolve it as soon as possible.

4. Hacking/trading in team members is only permitted if (a) an evolution requires it, or (b) no viable Pokémon are obtainable before the second gym / first grand trial.

In the case of (b), one low level Pokémon / egg may be hacked/traded to your game. This Pokémon must be obtainable naturally before the post-game in your given game.

5. Certain legendaries are permitted, under the following guidelines:

- The legendary's BST must be under 600
- Only one legendary per team
- The legendary is not used until the seventh badge is obtained (with the exception of Zygarde 10% in Su/Mo)

Spoiler: Legal Legendaries
-Kanto: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres
-Johto: Entei, Raikou, Suicune (also, in HG/SS: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres)
-Hoenn: Regice, Regirock, Registeel
-Sinnoh: Azelf, Mesprit, Uxie
-Unova: Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Thundurus, Tornadus
-Kalos; None.
-Alola: Zygarde (10% form only)


6. For Pokemon whose height/weight change via an ability (Wishiwashi, Minior, etc.), the Pokemon is treated as having no ability for classification purposes.

7. Rules specific to Gens VI and VII:

-Pokemon-Amie / Pokemon Refresh is not permitted
-EXP Share is permitted, but try not to go overboard
-Mega Evolutions are permitted. However, classification is determined by the base Pokemon only.
(For example, Mega Manectric can be used in an M Class run, since that is where Manetric naturally resides, but it is not permitted in an L Class run, where it technically qualifies based on its height)




ULTIMATES


You will be upgraded to an ULTIMATE CHAMPION once you complete a game using the same class in each of a certain number of generations.

For the Monosize Challenge, there are three tiers of ultimate champions:

Bronze Tier: Up to and including Gen V
Silver Tier: Up to and including Gen VI
Gold Tier: Up to and including Gen VII

Notes:

-Only main series games, or hacks that occur within the same region and follow the same storyline as their base game, can be considered for Ultimate Champion status

-You do not need to declare an Ultimate to be granted Ultimate status. Once you beat the right games, I'll bump you up

ON the OP can you include the size regions in Feet/Inches and Pounds, for those of us in the USA, I could make calculations but I think it would be easie if you had it listed in the OP

I think this would make the OP look a bit cluttered. If you want, you can look at the Bulbapedia pages for height/weight where they have both metric and imperial measurements listed. Alternatively, you can look at the Class Lists I set up in the reference material section, which cuts out the middle man and just lists all the pokemon in each class.

My mono-color challenge got a bit screwed up, so I decided to freshen it with another challenge instead of that one.

Spoiler:
Since I did have to choose a random starter that I could not use at the beginning of the game, I decided to choose Chespin for no reason whatsoever. I did quickly catch myself a Fletchling, because I have never used a Talonflame. And then I caught Pikachu in Santalune Forest, battled all trainers I could and beat the gym.

Lullaby the Fletchling lv. 12
- Peck
- Tackle
- Quick Attack
- //cant remember what was here//

Flitter the Pikachu lv. 13
- Thunder Shock
- Growl
- Quick Attack
- //anddd cant remember this either ^^'''//
