Petilil wants to learn a cruddy move! Should a badass move be replaced for a cruddy move? Sadly, yes. Yes it should. That's the idea behind this challenge: every move that comes your way must be learned by replacing whatever your oldest move is at the time the new one comes around. Through meticulous planning, one can make sure the best moves are at their disposal for the challenge -- or you can go head first and throw caution to the wind. How will you handle it?

The Rules
1. When learning a new move, whatever the oldest move you have it, it must be deleted in favor of the new move. For example, if Torchic knows, by order of how moves were learned, Scratch, Growl, Ember, and Focus Energy, when it tries to learn Peck, Scratch would be discarded. When Double Kick comes next, Growl would be discarded. So on and so forth.
2. Cheating/hacking in certain Pokemon is not allowed. As this challenge does not require a certain roster of party members, there's no reason for it.
3. Trading is allowed for evolution items, Mega Stones, or to perform an evolution.
4. HM slaves are required and cannot be used in battle.
5. TMs, HMs and move tutors may not be on main party members. Move relearner moves, however, may be taught because they come from the Pokemon's natural learnset. However when learning one, your oldest move must be deleted. Plan accordingly!
6. Exp Share can be used in gen VI -- but be careful. May end up getting you to a move you wouldn't want for whatever gym lies ahead.
7. Legendaries are not allowed.
8. Pokemon with small level-up movesets are not allowed (Unown, Smeargle, Wynaut, etc.)
9. Challenge ends after defeating the Champion.

So far, so good. That was actually my best run on Cheren. I normally always struggle with him. The team is probably going to shift at some point, mainly because I am not a huge fan of the Tepig line, but he does a good enough job for now. I haven't had to sacrifice anything really good so far, but I did have to give up Janna's Tackle for Cotton Spore, so...yeah. There's that. lol So her only attack is ThunderShock at the moment. But yeah, onto the next town! And I'm not looking forward to it because I friggin' hate the PokeStar Studio stuff. It's so agonizing.

This is gunna be good..

But what if the moves would make the Pokemon have no attacking moves? Do we just have to switch train one? Ive had Pokemon before that will learn a bunch of status moves in a row like Eevee, I just want to clarifiy if I just have to go ahead and switch train it for a while.

You would have to switch train, correct. You can be meticulous about it and plan things out if you like, or you can just go in guns a'blazing and not take consideration as to what your Pokemon will learn. Just depends on how you want to play it. But the point still stands that you have to delete the oldest move for the newest each time one comes around.

Can I play on an emulator?

If so:
Username: 5qwerty
Game: Emerald

Progress (will update per Gym):
Spoiler:

After Rustboro Gym:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 1


BLUEMAN Lv. 15
Modest | Torrent
[ Growl | Mud-Slap | Water Gun | Bide ]


MARIA Lv. 14
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Absorb | Tackle | Stun Spore | Leech Seed ]


GREENWOMAN Lv. 6
Careful | Trace
[ Growl | Confusion ]


SLAVE Lv. 4
Docile | Pickup
[ Tackle | Growl | Cut ]


Note, last two aren't really team members, I just caught them. It's going well so far, I'll have to play further to see what kind of challenges I'll face. Bide on BLUEMAN is kind of crappy, but I'll get Mud Shot soon so it will be fine.


After Dewford Gym:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 2


BLUEMAN Lv. 21
Modest | Torrent
[ Mud Shot | Foresight | Water Gun | Bide ]


MARIA Lv. 17
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Mega Drain | Tackle | Stun Spore | Leech Seed ]


GREENWOMAN Lv. 6
Careful | Trace
[ Growl | Confusion ]


SLAVE Lv. 4
Docile | Pickup
[ Tackle | Growl | Cut ]

Again, everything seems to be going nicely. I lost against Brawly once but that's because Bulk Up is broken. I don't even think I'll have many issues until the E4 at this rate, considering that BLUEMAN will learn Muddy Water and Earthquake late into its moveset. I'll probably end up catching an Ice/Flying/Fire type to deal with Grass types and I should be good to go.



After Mauville Gym:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 3


BLUEMAN Lv. 25
Modest | Torrent
[ Mud Shot | Foresight | Mud Sport | Bide ]


MARIA Lv. 27
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Mega Drain | Headbutt | Mach Punch | Leech Seed ]


GREENWOMAN Lv. 6
Careful | Trace
[ Growl | Confusion ]


SLAVE Lv. 4
Docile | Pickup
[ Tackle | Growl | Cut ]

Managed to beat Wattson even after the Voltorb SD'd on BLUEMAN first turn. Speaking of BLUEMAN, it only have one useful move right now, but I've got Soft Sand, so it should be good for now. I will be sad to see Leech Seed go on MARIA, but it's got insane Attack and Headbutt and Mach Punch, which kills everything except Ghost types. Still looking for a team-member to help me against Grass types, but MARIA's sheer power should be fine for now.


After Lavaridge Gym:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 4


BLUEMAN Lv. 34
Modest | Torrent
[ Mud Shot | Foresight | Mud Sport | Take Down ]


MARIA Lv. 33
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Mega Drain | Headbutt | Mach Punch | Counter ]


GREENWOMAN Lv. 6
Careful | Trace
[ Growl | Confusion ]


SLAVE Lv. 4
Docile | Pickup
[ Tackle | Growl | Cut | Rock Smash ]


STRONG Lv. 16
Mild | Oblivious
[ Growl | Tackle | Ember | Strength ]

Added STRONG to the team, but it's really just here for Strength. Now that I've beat Flannery, I have the Go-Goggles and will possibly be catching a new team member from the desert. I'm a bit worried about BLUEMAN, because Mud Shot will soon be deleted for Muddy Water.



After Petalburg Gym:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 5


BLUEMAN Lv. 35
Modest | Torrent
[ Mud Shot | Foresight | Mud Sport | Take Down ]


MARIA Lv. 35
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Mega Drain | Headbutt | Mach Punch | Counter ]


GREENWOMAN Lv. 6
Careful | Trace
[ Growl | Confusion ]


SLAVE Lv. 4
Docile | Pickup
[ Tackle | Growl | Cut | Rock Smash ]


STRONG Lv. 16
Mild | Oblivious
[ Growl | Tackle | Ember | Strength ]


SANDMASTER Lv. 19
Hasty | Hyper Cutter
[ Bite | Sand-Attack | Faint Attack ]

Ok, I got a SANDMASTER but I think Flygon doesn't really get any moves so I am not going to use it. I probably won't catch any more Pokémon until I can get Bagon or something that can learn Ice Beam or an Ice-type attack. I also lost to Norman once because he crit my BLUEMAN. Onto Fortree, I guess.


After Fortree Gym:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 6


BLUEMAN Lv. 41
Modest | Torrent
[ Muddy Water | Foresight | Mud Sport | Take Down ]


MARIA Lv. 41
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Sky Uppercut | Headbutt | Mach Punch | Counter ]


ROCKETTE Lv. 35
Docile | Rock Head
[ Stomp | Fury Attack | Scary Face | Rock Blast ]


GREENWOMAN Lv. 6
Careful | Trace
[ Growl | Confusion ]


SLAVE Lv. 4
Docile | Pickup
[ Tackle | Growl | Cut | Rock Smash ]


STRONG Lv. 17
Mild | Oblivious
[ Growl | Tackle | Ember | Strength ]

So I went ahead of Fortree City to the Safari Zone and caught myself ROCKETTE the Rhyhorn. I deliberately avoided trainers on the way to Fortree and from Fortree to the Safari Zone so that I could have some experience after I caught a Pokémon. I then challenged Winona and defeated her, with all there main members of the team putting in some good work. Also, STRONG accidentally gained a level because it got Roar'd into.



After Mossdeep Gym:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 7


BLUEMAN Lv. 45
Modest | Torrent
[ Muddy Water | Foresight | Mud Sport | Take Down ]


MARIA Lv. 43
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Sky Uppercut | Headbutt | Mach Punch | Counter ]


ROCKETTE Lv. 42
Docile | Rock Head
[ Horn Drill | Fury Attack | Scary Face | Rock Blast ]


FLY Lv. 22
Naive | Keen Eye
[ Fly | Supersonic | Wing Attack | Mist ]


SLAVE Lv. 8
Docile | Pickup
[ Tackle | Growl | Cut | Rock Smash ]


STRONG Lv. 17
Mild | Oblivious
[ Growl | Tackle | Ember | Strength ]

So I boxed GREENWOMAN in favour of FLY, who can use Fly to get me around. ROCKETTE was level 40 when I finished everything up to Tate & Liza, so I had to go surfing for some Swimmers to battle. After ROCKETTE evolved, I actually beat Tate & Liza pretty easily. This team is looking poised to take the next Gym!



After Sootopolis Gym:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 8


BLUEMAN Lv. 45
Modest | Torrent
[ Muddy Water | Foresight | Mud Sport | Take Down ]


MARIA Lv. 47
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Sky Uppercut | Mind Reader | Mach Punch | Counter ]


ROCKETTE Lv. 45
Docile | Rock Head
[ Horn Drill | Fury Attack | Scary Face | Rock Blast ]


FLY Lv. 22
Naive | Keen Eye
[ Fly | Supersonic | Wing Attack | Mist ]


DIVEFALL Lv. 34
Hardy | Liquid Ooze
[ Dive | Surf | Waterfall | Wrap ]


STRONG Lv. 17
Mild | Oblivious
[ Rock Smash | Tackle | Ember | Strength ]

So long, SLAVE, your efforts will be missed. So MARIA's movepool kind of sucks right now, and I'm waiting for it to learn Dynamicpunch so that I can just move relearn and delete some moves. I'm debating between catching a Snorunt or a Bagon, because both can kill Dragon-types - I suppose ROCKETTE's Rock Blasts work fine as well. Now it's time for Victory Road and the E4!


After beating the E4:
Spoiler:

MR. BOY | Emerald | Badges: 8


BLUEMAN Lv. 53
Modest | Torrent
[ Muddy Water | Protect | Earthquake | Take Down ]


MARIA Lv. 51
Mild | Effect Spore
[ Sky Uppercut | Mind Reader | Mach Punch | Counter ]


ROCKETTE Lv. 49
Docile | Rock Head
[ Horn Drill | Take Down | Scary Face | Rock Blast ]


FLY Lv. 22
Naive | Keen Eye
[ Fly | Supersonic | Wing Attack | Mist ]


DIVEFALL Lv. 34
Hardy | Liquid Ooze
[ Dive | Surf | Waterfall | Wrap ]


STRONG Lv. 17
Mild | Oblivious
[ Rock Smash | Tackle | Ember | Strength ]

So I ended up spamming a lot of Revives and Hyper Potions, but I did manage to win. I may have broken the rules because I used my HM Slaves as sacks - it doesn't really matter because I could have just caught 3 random Pokémon and done the same. Me having Rare Candies, Ethers, and Elixirs in my inventory came in really clutch. I got BLUEMAN to level 52 with a Rare Candy right before Wallace (though I should have done so earlier), and my team had big PP issues through the entire E4 challenge: Phoebe was a pain because of Pressure and the fact that I only had Muddy Water and Rock Blast to hit Ghosts. I also missed a lot of my moves, which prolonged the battles.

Anyway, here is the victory photo:

            UPDATE SOULSILVER
            Spoiler:

            Began my adventure with my partner Carlisle the Cyndaquil. Did the Mr. Pokémon side quest and battled my rival which I called Lucius. Following this I made my way to Violet City catching a Pidgey on the way. One in Violet City I picked up the Slugma egg which is yet to hatch, from Mr. Primo. Then moved onto Route 32 and caught a Mareep and a Wooper. Took on the Sprout Tower for some extra training then took on the Violet City gym and won with a mixture of all my pokemon. I then collected the egg with Togepi in it from Elm's assistant. Currently I am making my way to Azalea Town.

              game: Red

              Spoiler:

              BLAZEMOST the Charmander enters the world and blitzes through the early game, as usual. The joys of not spending a single P on PokeBalls offset soloing.

              MEGAMAGIC the Drowzee joins at Vermillion and benefits from switch-grinding. I remember to get a Spearow so I can HM-slave DUX. At L17, MEGAMAGIC FINALLY gets Confusion and becomes useful. After S.S. Anne, it returns and wipes Misty with Hypnosis abuse.

              We now hit the most difficult part of the run, namely Lt. Surge's wretched Gym. Fortunately, after about a dozen attempts, I hit the right trashcan and sweep Surge with Ember. It's worth noting that BLAZEMOST is overleveled at this point.

              Case in point: BLAZEMOST evolves to Charizard while going through Rock Tunnel. I don't even suffer deaths from Selfdestructs due to having stocked up on Potions and Super Potions beforehand.
              MEGAMAGIC follows up by evolving to Hypno after sweeping Lavender Rival.

              Rocket Hideout is, of course, Confusion fodder.

              BLAZEMOST celebrates by taking out Celadon Gym with 21 uses of Ember and gaining three levels in the process.

              Pokemon Tower falls to MEGAMAGIC. Unfortunately it receives a severe nerf when Hypnosis is replaced by Poison Gas, but I'm so overleveled for this point in the game that it doesn't matter.

              I pick up Snorlax as my Surf/Strength HM Slave and head down Cycling Road, learning Psychic in the process of battling Bikers. I celebrate by having MEGAMAGIC eat Koga's entire Gym. 15 uses of Headbutt, 10 uses of Psychic, and 9 uses of Confusion later, I irritably wonder why the man claims to have a Poison-type Gym when half of them are Psychics. Whatever, I won.

              I immediately get back to the Power Plant to pick up THORDAIN the Electabuzz. To my pleasant surprise, it comes at L33. To my irritation, it doesn't yet have Thundershock, but a bit of switch-grinding fixes that.

              Silph Co. is pretty simple. MEGAMAGIC disposes of Rival, whereupon I collect BLIZZARD the Lapras. It is hopelessly underleveled, but fortunately I left the vast majority of the Rockets around for cheap and easy switch-grinding EXP.

              Unfortunately I lose patience, and thus I'm left to slowly grind up BLIZZARD through Sabrina (MEGAMAGIC), Blaine (BLAZEMOST), Giovanni (MEGAMAGIC), and Viridian Rival (a lot of Body Slams and MEGAMAGIC). At that point it learns Ice Beam and becomes viable.

              At E4, I fuel up with 30x Revives, 30x Full Heals, and 50x Hyper Potions from Saffron. My team, to be fair, is:
              THORDAIN L46 Electabuzz: Thunderpunch | Leer | Thundershock | Screech
              BLAZEMOST L47 Charizard: Rage | Slash | Flamethrower | Leer
              MEGAMAGIC L48 Hypno: Headbutt | Poison Gas | Psychic | Meditate
              BLIZZARD L41 Lapras: Body Slam | Confuse Ray | Ice Beam | Mist

              Lorelei goes down to THORDAIN, with BLAZEMOST handling Jynx and MEGAMAGIC cleaning up Lapras after it scores a lucky crit. Two Hyper Potions and a Revive later, everything's normal.
              Bruno, as always, is a joke.
              Agatha is MEGAMAGIC fodder. A Full Heal and Hyper Potion later, team's at full.
              Lance makes THORDAIN and BLIZZARD earn their keep - all two Hyper Potions worth of it. Excellent job. Another two get poured on post-battle. This is why it was worth it to have natural Thunderpunch and Ice Beam learners on the team!

              Champion:
              Pidgeot falls to Thunderpunch from THORDAIN.
              Alakazam is countered by MEGAMAGIC's Headbutt.
              Rhydon is nearly OHKOed, at L61, by a L43 Lapras. Why. Unfortunately I run out of Ice Beam PP, but it's frozen solid and I Body Slam it down the last few bits of HP.
              Arcanine hits a crit and takes out BLAZEMOST, but THORDAIN finishes it off.
              Exeggutor is an irritating wretch, but BLIZZARD's Body Slams finish it.
              Blastoise unfortunately scores a run of hits when it really shouldn't (Paralyzed AND confused), and I end up going through six Revives and three Hyper Potions to stop it. After that, however, I enter the Hall of Fame with:
              THORDAIN L48 Electabuzz
              BLAZEMOST L47 Charizard
              BLIZZARD L44 Lapras
              MEGAMAGIC L50 Hypno


              A fun run; everything went pretty much as planned, minus Champion Rival's Blastoise scoring a lucky hit or two. Hit a minor snag due to not realizing Body Slam would overwrite Water Gun on Lapras, but later recovered. Actually went better than some of my TM-abusing runs.

              Magnemite really pulled through in Roxie's gym. Completely forgot steel is immune to poison until I got in the battle. Happy with my team so far, this is my first time actually using the Tepig line so it's a nice change of pace from the usual Snivy. Whee. Now to think about my next team member..

                Still haven't lost any really good moves as of yet. But I also picked up a Timburr since I found one and I really like the little guy. Pretty big help in the gym, though Maxwell could have taken it all alone if I really wanted him to. Anyway, we're moving on to the desert. I don't have a team planned for this, I'm kind of just catching stuff as it shows up, so who knows what I'lll end with or what stays from my current party.

                I swapped from B2 to Gold... Brother also plays a 3DS and we only have one charger so it's a bit annoying swapping back and forth. Emulating makes things a bit easier. ;w;

                Mini-update since I'm not sure when I'll play again. I've been trying to finish the Halloween event, so that's taken priority over this challenge for a bit. I'm currently trying to level up my team before taking on Elesa. I still haven't lost any really good moves, but my Trubbish did get stuck with the Stockpile + Swallow combo and even with the defense boosts Stockpile provides, it's still not really strong enough to utilize it. :/ I also lost Flaaffy's Thundershock for Electroball so that's going to hinder me significantly. Sunflora and Growlithe are still doing alright, and I have a Gurrdurr now, who is probably the strongest party member.
