    Biological Class Challenge

    Welcome! In this challenge you have to play with Pokémon that belong to the same biological class, like Mammals, Birds or Reptiles. Let's sail away in Darwin's boat! If you manage to finish the Challenge, your name will be put in the Champions' list.

    Rules

    1. You must choose one of the classes listed below. You might use only Pokémon that are in the list of the class you choose.
    2. You can't change your class during a game.
    3. You can catch a Pokémon from a different class, if it evolves to one that belongs to your class.
    4. HM Slaves that don't belong to the class you are playing with are allowed, as long as they don't battle.
    5. Cheating to get a Pokémon you can't get normally in the game you're playing is allowed.
    6. If the class you chose is not available among the starters of the game you're playing, you might choose what you want, but replace it for the first Pokémon that belongs to your class you find in the game.

    The Classes

    (Just for knowledge, not all the categories listed below are biological classes, since class has a specific meaning.)

    Because Mew gave birth to all types of Pokémon, it is in all classes.
    If Arceus is God, and God is nature, then Arceus also belongs to all classes.

    Some classifications may seem strange, but they all has an explanation. Azulmarill for example is in the Inorganic class, but it's there because it may be based on a beach ball.
    Some Pokémon are in more than one class, since they can be inspired in more than one kind of animal/creature/thing.

    Signing Up

    You can sign either for a Single Challenge, in which you play one game with one class, an Ultimate Challenge, in which you play a game on each region using one class (remakes are allowed, so either Red or FireRed count for Kanto), or the special Darwin Challenge. In the Darwin Challenge, you must play a game in each 7 regions, just like the Ultimate Challenge, but in this one you must use the living being classes from the least evolved to the most evolved. The order is:

    Plants & Fungi -> Arthropoda & Other Invertebrates -> Fish & Amphibians -> Reptiles -> Birds -> Mammals -> Humanshape

    In both Ultimate and Darwin Challenges, the order of the regions of the games you play doesn't matter.

      Guys, I changed the order of the Darwin challenge. Now Plants come before Arthropoda, what's more correct.

        I plan to blitz with Venusaur (Body Slam/Sleep Powder/Gen-1!Razor Leaf), so I hope to report back later today.

        Out of curiosity, since you mention cheating in unobtainable Pokemon, can you cheat in Elemental Stones (say, after four badges) if they're otherwise unobtainable before the E4? Gold/Silver has a real issue with this.

          Yeah, you can do it.

            Okay, thanks!

            Plant run of Kanto completed with :t003: at L60. It was greatly aided by an interesting design choice in Gen 1 that, for all but the slowest Pokemon, Razor Leaf always crits. Unfortunately, the same design choice also results in Alakazam getting frequent criticals (due to its high speed), so the Champion battle took a few tries.

            Signing up for Johto now. I won't be able to get away with a solo this time...

              Congratulations, you're the first champion of this challenge!



              Reptile Run - Emerald

              I'm back in Hoenn and I feel good. I chose Treecko to begin my journey with me once again and it's been a good companion like always. It's a good fighter too. It grew fast and protected me through our firs steps. We reached together Rustboro, and defeated Roxanne with relative ease, though I passed tense moments against that Nosepas of hers. At the end Elrond won, and evolved. Now it's a cool Grovyle.
              The Devon Corporation gave me a PokéNav for helping the Devon Corp. and now I'm taking a package from them through the sea to another city. But first I should stop by Dewford and give a guy named Steve a letter from the Corp.'s President...

              Team


              Elrond / Grovyle M / LV 18

              Rock Tomb

                I'm probably going for the bonus "defeat Red", so not quite finished, but here's my entry through Elite Four. I've never had so much respect for a Parasect. Or a Beedrill.

                It turns out I didn't need to hack in a Water Stone after all! In fact, I just got the legitimate Water Stone in Kanto. So much for my initial plans. {XD}

                Spoiler:

                Started with Cyndaquil as a prop, and used it to grind Needle the
                Weedle up to the point of evolution. Needle then took on Sprout
                Tower, evolving to Beedrill after some grinding, and emerged at L12.

                Falkner's Gym took him up to L13, and he finished Falkner at L14.
                Somehow I expected to have much more trouble with a Bug in a
                FLYING-type Gym...

                I became very glad I'd gone with a Weedle and not a Kakuna when
                I ran into a Hiker's Onix. PSN is a very nice status if it's not
                happening to you. On the other hand, I did get KOed by
                Hiker Anthony because I forgot about Rock Throw.

                Slowpoke Well is a breeze, and Needle emerges at L17. He finishes
                Bugsy at L19, thanks to setting up with Harden and Focus Energy
                on Metapod. I push Needle to L20 for Twineedle, then manage to
                clear the Azalea Rival with a bit of luck and a ton of Potions.
                I've been blowing pretty much all my money on Potions under
                the assumption I'll frequently wipe, so it works out.

                I find Mush the Paras in Ilex Forest and designate him as the
                Cut-user. He levels quickly, which is good.

                Got lucky against Miltank after an attempt or two and scored
                three Twineedles in a row. Worth noting that Needle was L25
                at this point, so slightly overleveled... Then again, it WAS
                against Rolloutank.

                I catch Casey the Krabby as backup while Staryu-hunting, then
                get the real thing a few tries later. Welcome StarPKMN to the team.

                The reason Starmie is important to my long-term plans is, bluntly,
                that I have to pass both Wil and Lance. Xatu is highly unpleasant
                because it combines STAB Psychic with STAB Flying-type moves, which
                get along very poorly with almost all my options. Starmie, however,
                resists Psychic and has high defense, so it fends off Xatu
                adroitly.

                Took advantage of a random swarm to recruit Lucky the Yanma.
                Celebrated by buying up the local stock of Awakenings and taking
                down Morty. That done, I caught a wave to Cianwood. While there,
                I got Cruel Lord the Tentacruel for backup. A bit of grinding
                later, Mush evolved, and I was ready to take on Chuck.

                ...who was surprisingly easy, because his Poliwrath suffered
                severe AI difficulties and kept spamming Mind Reader +
                Hypnosis against Needle. Huh, maybe the "spam Psychic attacks
                regardless of whether they inflict damage" oversight WASN'T
                fully removed from Gen II? (It was completely harmless because
                I went massively over-the-top with the pre-Morty buying spree.
                I used 6 Awakenings on him and 3 on Chuck, leaving me with...
                21 Awakenings...)

                Alas, the string of good luck ended, as I realized... I didn't
                have any Pokemon that could fly. Oops. A short swim later,
                I caught FLYBOT the Hoothoot, who will never see combat.

                A short medicine trip later, I was ready to take on Jasmine. And...
                well, DESPITE the Magnemites, it turns out that a Water-heavy
                team does quite well. You just have to get off one Surf per
                Pokemon. :P StarPKMN also proved successful with surviving
                Steelix's best efforts, and, despite Sunny Day, pulled out a Surf
                win.

                At the Lake of Rage, I caught RageNative the Venonat, who will
                probably never actually see use. Still, it's good to have a spare
                not!Butterfree. I also snagged that fabulous HM Serf that can
                learn Waterfall, Strength, Whirlpool, AND Surf. It's even shiny!

                ...not that any team allowed Pokemon that can learn Surf has
                ever actually NEEDED a Surf HM-dummy. Who at Nintendo decided
                that the player should get a free, infinitely-teachable, widely-
                distributed 95-BP Water move at midgame?

                That summarizes the Rocket base, Pryce, and the Radio Tower.
                Johto's difficulty curve... is weird.

                Also, I ended up finishing Clair with a sterling performance by
                Mush (I will never underestimate Parasect again) rather than the
                INTENDED StarPKMN solo. Maybe I won't have to break out the
                GameShark for a Water Stone? That... was very weird.

                Continuing on, I wipe out my rival with ease. Spore is... really,
                stupidly powerful. It's balanced because Parasect is otherwise
                subpar, but... whoo boy.

                To my surprise, I clear Wil with only a few Revives and Hyper
                Potions. Icy Wind is good, but it turns out that having
                Bug attacks helps more than I'd realized.

                Also, it turns out that Koga's Pokemon have very low Sp. Def.
                Or perhaps Surf + Mystic Water is really just that good.

                Bruno is cheesed through Spore and Quick Claw. I'm glad I bought
                so many Revives, though...

                It turns out Umbreon doesn't spam Sand Attack if it sees death
                coming. Needle thus redeemed the honor of Beedrills everywhere,
                and the rest of the battle commenced. And ended fairly quickly,
                because it turns out that Surf and Spore overpowered.

                Two Ethers and one Max Ether later, I was ready for Lance. That...
                was messy and took several Revives, but Icy Wind proved faithful.
                That and Surf. And Spore. When is a Parasect stronger than a
                Gyarados? When the Gyarados is all but hardcoded to use Rain
                Dance on the first turn...


                My party:
                Spoiler:


                Mush the L43 Parasect♂
                Quick Claw
                Spore | Slash | Leech Life

                Mush was honestly a dead weight until he evolved, and I thought of ditching him. That would have been a horrific mistake. I have never used Spore in a legitimate, non-randomizer run, and I thought Parasect's speed would render it useless. Instead, it turned out that anything that couldn't KO Mush in one turn was rendered utterly helpless.
                The blank move slot is because I deleted Cut right after getting Slash. Turns out Giga Drain only comes in at L55. Oops.


                Needle the L38 Beedrill♂
                Amulet Coin
                Pursuit | Focus Energy | Twineedle | Pin Missile

                The surprising breakout star of the run. Yes, most of that was from being overleveled (from trainer EXP alone - not excessive grinding), but I honestly was waiting for the fabled "early game bug falling behind by midgame". That just didn't happen this time - Needle wasn't the strongest, but he was certainly useful. His only problem was lacking something totally broken like Surf or Spore.


                StarPKMN the L44 Staryu
                Mystic Water (or NeverMeltIce, depending on circumstances)
                Surf | Icy Wind | Swift | Light Screen

                The planned MVP, who was indeed very valuable but not a complete run-breaker. If I'd evolved it, it likely would have taken that place, but instead... it just proved a reasonably durable Surf-launcher with Icy Wind backup against dragons. (Mush actually was an equally good dragon-killer, even with lower damage-per-turn - Spore gave him much better durability.)


                Cruel Lord the L22 Tentacruel♂
                Surf | Cut | Constrict | Acid

                Included as an honorable mention for serving as a warm body while I hastily revived Pokemon during the Elite Four. No, seriously, that proved surprisingly valuable. And to think he only was in the party because I was too lazy to deposit him...


                ---------

                Red has been defeated.

                Let's just say it involved a whole lot of Revives, a whole lot of Hyper Potions, and Spore. Honestly, I would have had to level much higher without it. Despite my initial conviction that Starmie would be the MVP of the run... I now have to give that title to Parasect. Starmie provided the power to actually score KOs in a timely fashion, but Parasect kept enabling my under-prepared, underleveled runs at major foes by swooping in with Quick Claw!Spore and stopping team-OHKOing Pokemon in their tracks. I never expected, when I started, to be able to defeat Red with a team of Bug Pokemon and a Staryu/Starmie riding shotgun. Not only did Parasect enable it, but it enabled it in one day-long dash without stopping to grind, expanding the team beyond three usable Pokemon, or taking any precautions beyond loading up on healing items at the local mart.

                Thanks, buddy. I'm never going to underestimate your species again.

                        I started the game with Snivy as my starter pokemon and temporary team member. I grinded a bit to raise Snivy up to level 14. Then, I went to the Aspertia Gym to challenge Cheren for the Basic Badge, which I recieved after defeating Cheren. Later, I headed to Virbank City. There, I went to the Virbank Complex and caught Magnemite and Koffing as two of my official team members; I nicknamed Magnemite Tesla and Koffing Pneumonia. After healing my team and depositing Snivy in the PC at the Pokemon Center, I did more level grinding to make my team be at least level 15.

                        I challenged Roxie for the Toxic Badge, using Tesla for the fight. At the end, Tesla emerged victorious and I got the Toxic Badge. After the battle, I did a brief movie shoot at the Pokestar Studio. Later, I battled some Plasma grunts before heading out to Castelia City to earn the Insect Badge.

                          I arrived at Castelia City, teamed up with my rival in the Castelia Sewers while fighting two Plasma Grunts, and challenged Burgh at the Castelia City gym to earn the Insect Badge. Afterwards, I headed to Nimbasa City for the Bolt Badge. On the way, I encountered and fought Colress for the first time. I grinded for hours and leveled up my team to at least level 35; Tesla evolved into Magneton and Pneumonia evolved into Weezing. I challenged Elesa and earned the Bolt Badge.

                            Hi, Piloswine. For the challenge, is it okay if I use Azumarill on my team since it is listed in the inorganic class?

                              Yes. It's on the Inorganic list because it's based on a beach ball. Sorry for the delay, I'll answer faster next time.

                              So between Persona 5 taking up massive chunks of my gaming time, feeling terrible for the past several days, and not knowing the Lapras you get from Silph Co is only Lv. 15 when you get it in Gen 1 (possibly also combined with the fact that I tend to only update when I actually finish the run outside nuzlockes), I finished the run. Believe it or not, I actually beat the Elite Four first try with an underleveled team thanks to the almighty power of heal spamming and getting two lucky freezes during Lance for more heal spamming. Sounds like a successful run to me.

                              The Reptile Room (Final)


                              Bowser Jr. (Blastoise) Lv. 55
                              Moves: Ice Beam, Bite, Hydro Pump, Surf
                              So you know how I mentioned Lapras earlier even though I started with Squirtle? Well, it's a funny story. I originally wanted to use both Lapras and Bowser Jr. here for more type coverage because Lapras can learn Psychic and Thunderbolt along with Ice Beam by level up, but by the time I got to Silph Co, I hardly had need for it. Bowser Jr. did straggle a little behind Boa sometimes because I had two Water moves (I had Bubblebeam until Hydro Pump), but when the Elite Four came along, Bowser Jr put in the most work out of my three man squad. Out of all of them, I'd say he's my MVP.


                              Boa (Arbok) Lv. 53
                              Moves: Rock Slide, Dig, Mega Drain, Strength
                              Cue the "wow, you are so unoriginal with nicknames" comments. Anyway, Boa was a chore to raise up at first when it only had Wrap. When he finally got Bite, we were in business and Boa slowly rose up towards being...mildly decent? Rock Slide during lategame was nice for the Gyarados and the Ice types that Bowser Jr. couldn't kill, and since he was the fastest member of the team, he proved to be useful.


                              First Ever (Rhydon) Lv. 48
                              Moves: Tail Whip, Earthquake, Submission, Strength
                              What do I say about this one? The lack of good TMs in Gen 1 combined with the Rhyhorn line's lacking level up moves and extremely low speed made it hard to use this one. I sure spent some time in the Safari Zone trying to catch him because I wanted to use a Rhydon in a run because I'm always denied the use of Golem in recorded lockes because they always die before they evolve. Nuzlockes aside, he was mostly just there.


                              Now with this run completed, I shall go and plan out which game and which biological class I will tackle next.

                                    Part 2

                                    I went to Dewford to deliver a letter to Steven, but I found out there was a Gym there. I made my way to the leader, but Brawly was too tough. I fell. I decided to heal my wounds training my Grovyle while I crossed a completely dark cave to meet Steven. Colliding with the walls, I made my way to the deepest side of the cave (catching Aron during this walk), and found Steven there. After giving him his letter, I went to Slateport to overlevel (does this word exist?) my Elrond, so it could defeat Brawly's Makuhita. Then I made the poor Mr. Briney take me through the sea again to Dewford. My strategy worked, Elrond defeated Makuhita with its level advantage.
                                    The next step in my travel was going back to Slateport. After giving the goods to Captain Stern, I went north to Muaville City where I fought at another Gym. The battle against the Leader, Wattson, was hard, mainly because all my moves were not effective against his Magneton. I trained my Aron more and challenged him again. Mithril made a good damage, and Elrond's Leaf Blade finished the rest of his team. The sympathetic grandpa gave me the Dynamo Badge.
                                    From Mauville I had three ways to go. I decided to pick the North road and see what I will find.

                                    So, fun fact. Gen 4 is my least favorite generation outside HG/SS, but that's not important right now. We're here to sign up for another helping of biological challenging times.

                                    Unfortunately, due to how Gen 4 can be along with my planned team, I'll have to solo run the first three gyms with Turtwig until I can get the gift Porygon from Veilstone. Looks like it's gonna be another game of "rely on luck to win" until Veilstone. Hopefully, I can at least get Torterra (or close to getting it) by then.

                                      North from Mauville, I had a lot a of adventure. I defeated Team Magma, impeding them from waking up the volcano. There, I got another member for my team, Sauron the Torkoal. Many routes ahead, near Meteor Falls entrance, I caught a snake, Gollum the Seviper. My team was much better now. Past Meteor Falls, I got back to Rustboro, completing a circle with my wandering. Expecting to find something in the east, I crossed Rusturf Tunnel, opening the blocked way and receiving Strenght as a "thank you" gift from a guy who wanted to meet his girlfriend at the other side. After visiting my friend Wally I headed back to Mauville. I was certain I should go left from there now, but I couldn't use Surf yet to cross the river blocking the way. There was something I missed. I headed back to Mt. Chimney and descended the yet unexplored Jagged Pass. When I got down I saw myself at Lavaridge. Yeah, I had forgotten the small city with naural hot pools.
                                      There was a Gym there. Of course, I had to challenge it before going forward in Hoenn. I took the challenge imediately. Flannery defeated me in the first time, but I had a disadvantage, cause Gollum fainted after battling the trainers in the gym. After losing to her a couple more of times, I defeated her whole team with a five turns strike of Rollout, after just raising Mithril one level. I also evolved Elrond, but his force wasn't used in the battle.
                                      Right after leaving the Gym I received the Go-goggles, so it was time to explore the desert. I defeated all the trainers there and then I had no clue of where to go next.

                                          I only realized I was going up against a fierce massive magma beast with grass types when I was halfway through. Not too bad, though. Found a lot of seedots early on so I traded one for a Lotad and yay, got a Tengu and a french Kappa. The gym leaders were piece of cake, IIRC it was harder in Emerald, My guys suffered a bit from Crobat and Gyarados, but that aside everything went OK. Even if my team was only grass type, they had some moves and second types that helped a lot. Digger Grovyle was a thing. All the HMs too were placed in my team members, and discarded later on. I trained eight pokemon, Tropius and Cacturne not featured, they all got around the same level and I don't remember grinding, but to get Spore. In the end Primal Groudon wasn't a problem at all, however, he took out my Ludicolo because of reasons (I was unaware of his ability). The elife tour was pretty smooth and I gladly made a satisfying battle against Steven, using a matching pokemon in style to defeat each of his. So I'm going for Delta Episode now.

                                            Reptile Run - Emerald
                                            Part 4

                                            Well, I had 4 badges and no idea on where to go now. Then I remembered I had a father and ran back to Petalburg, because he said to me that after I had four badges he would battle me, though I had forgotten this. The battle was tough, but I won in the end, with a bit of luck and a pack of strength. I went to Mawille then, where the granpa asked me to do a favor to him at New Mawille. After defeating daddy I received the HM 03 Surf, and caught a Marill to use it. Because of this I was able to surf at the south of Mawille and get to new Mawille (not without stopping by a little island and reading a sign saying “Team Aqua was Here”, that was covered by another message: “Team Magma Rules”. Ah, I have to say, I didn't remember Surf music was so wonderful. It makes you feel you're going into a wonderful adventure.
                                            New Mawille had a complicated security system where you had to step on buttons on the floor that opened and closed doors, making you get stuck there with no way back, letting you without option but keep going. It was also packed up with annoying Voltorbs and Magnemites that jumped at you from everywhere. Well, I turned off the defective generator as I promised to Wattson, and went back to Mawille and from there to the east. Crossed the water body and arrived at the other side of Hoenn.
                                            Ther next part was wilder, with a lot of water and green. There were narrow bridges that I had to cross with my bike, grass patches that were taller than me, a city at the top of trees, and a savage weather, with lots of rain. I caught a Kecleon, a Pokémon that changes its type depending on the attacks it received.
                                            Winona was easy, and I've got my next badge. On the way to the next city, I saw that bandits of Team Aqua talking about doing something evil at Mt. Pyre. I might have a look on what they'll do there.
