Update #2

I haven't been put on the Challengers' List, so hopefully my sign-up was alright as I finished the challenge.

After the previous update, I trained the entire team up to Level 55 (except Moltres, which had ended up at Level 81 after using it with the EXP Share to train the newly bred team). By that time, I was a little tired of training of training, so I took on the League underleveled. Here's how it went:
  • Wikstrom was easy, thanks to how OP Moltres was. He took out Klefki, Scizor, and Aegislash. Lucario handled Probopass.
  • Malva was tougher, because my main weapon, Kabutops was underleveled and had an unimpressive moveset. He took out Pyroar, Mightyena somehow took out Torkoal, Mega Gardevoir OHKO'd her Talonflame, and Moltres finished off her Chandelure after Mightyena started it.
  • Siebold gave Meganium trouble. Meganium took out Clawitzer, but Barbaracle (which was suprisingly fast) took it out with X-Scissor. Lucario avenged its teammate and Mega Gardevoir handled Gyarados and Starmie.
  • Drasna was almost as easy as Wikstrom. Mega Gardevoir soloed her whole roster.

Afterwards, I battled Diantha, who wasn't too bad. Moltres handled Hawlucha and her Mega Gardevoir, Lucario beat Aurorus, and my Mega Gardevoir took out her Goodra, Tyrantum, and Gourgeist.

The Team:

Moltres Lv. 82 (Wildcard) @ Flame Plate
Air Slash
Sunny Day

Mightyena Lv. 55 (#11) @ Black Glasses
Take Down
Dark Pulse
Shadow Ball

Gardevoir Lv. 57 (Hoenn Confirmed!) @ Gardevoirite
Shadow Ball
Dazzling Gleam

Meganium Lv. 55 (Harsh Weather) @ Miracle Seed
Solar Beam
Energy Ball
Sunny Day

Kabutops Lv. 55 (Rivalry) @ Mystic Water
Ice Beam
Rock Slide

Lucario Lv. 55 (Unity) @ Black Belt
Flash Cannon
Aura Sphere
Rock Slide

Challenge Complete!

After spending 4 hours tonight training my team and taking on the Elite Four I managed to reach the last challenge: Gardevoir. After failing several times I have decided to end my challenge here (considering it is the early hours of the morning here and I have a paperound at 7AM). I managed to defeat the Elite Four but I fell at the champion.

Even though I failed I really enjoyed this challenge, some of my Pokemon somehow made some amazing plays in the Elite Four battles and considering their level deficit (my entire party was LV 50-55) I felt it was a great effort. This challenge gave me something to work towards and it was really fun as Pokemon X has no post game, thanks for organizing this challenge and I hope to take part in something similar next year :)

It's 3 AM here, and I'm finally done with my challenge, yay! Good thing it's the weekend, hehe.

I really enjoyed the challenge, pretty much everybody on my team were Pokemon I've never used before, so it was a lot of fun playing with them. Most of the training was done at the Battle Chateau and the Winding Woods, with most of the party holding Lucky Eggs, I made sure to rotate through my Pokemon so nobody was left out, well, except Butterfree, who stayed a Caterpie until right before the E4 challenge, oops.

Notes on the League battle in the spoiler, and then the team. As a side note, I actually have everybody in a different ball that matches each Pokemon: Butterfree is in a Premier Ball, Luxray is in a Quick Ball, Ninetales is in a Poke Ball, Camerupt is in a Repeat Ball, Gourgeist is in a Luxury Ball, and Amoonguss is in a Dusk Ball.

Wilkstrom was easy to beat; I had the sun up the entire time, and Ninetales did most of the job, with Camerupt stepping in to take care of Probopass. Siebold's Gyarados put up a great fight, I think this was the toughest Pokemon of the entire League, while Clawitzer fell to Ninetales's Solar Beam, Barbaracle to Amoonguss's Solar Beam, and Starmie to Luxray's Wild Charge.

Malva's team was taken down almost single-handedly by Camerupt, with Earth Power and EQ boosted by Growth; only Talonflame, immune to Ground, was KOed by Luxray. Drasna took the longest to beat, that Dragalge was refusing to go down. I didn't really have a plan for Drasna, so I just sent out whoever felt right at that moment. I think Butterfree was out once to use Sleep Powder, and that was the only time he did anything, haha.

Diantha was as easy as I remembered. And she kept referring to herself as the Champion? I just had to beat her again, haha. I had Ninetales set up the sun, and then beat Hawlucha. Sent Amoonguss to 1-turn Solar Beam Tyrantrum. Then it took Camerupt 2 EQs to beat Aurorus, so she managed to set up dual screens. I kept Camerupt against Goodra, and luckily he was able to take enough Muddy Waters until the screens wear off. Luxray killed Goodra and then Gourgeist, and got Mega Gardevoir down in the red. I had Gourgeist Shadow Sneak, and then it was over. Champion! Again.

Update #2

Wow am I cutting it close. I ended up taking each of my six members through the Pokemon League 4-5 times per Pokemon before I finally deemed them strong enough. As a result, my Espeon (which was part of my main team) gained like 24 or so levels, maxing out at level 100. Anyway, I wasn't sure if I only had to defeat Red or if I still had to defeat the Pokemon League, so I decided to do both! Started with Red because he was easier, then took on the Pokemon League. Even wrote a log somewhat detailing my battles (warning, it is long):

~ Red sent out Pikachu; I sent out Xiao Pai (Hippowdon)
~ Sand Stream triumphed over the hail!
~ Xiao Pai set up Stealth Rock
~ Pika stood no chance against Earthquake
~ One down, five to go!

~ Four down, two to go!
~ Red sent out Snorlax; I sent out Forte
~ Why must it know Blizzard
~ Going to keep healing Forte until Snorlax misses, runs out of Blizzards, or lands a crit.

~ Whoo, Blizzard missed again; took the time to fully heal Dylas

~ Revived and healed the cost of Dylas's health

~ Swalot was taken down swiftly thanks to Earthquake
~ Koga sent out Toxicroak; I left Dolce in
~ Aaand Earthquake took down Toxicroak in one turn, too
~ Koga sent out Crobat; I sent out Forte
~ Used Curse five times; silly Crobat thought it could win with Fly
~ Crobat cannot deal with Rock Slide
~ Koga sent out Muk; I kept Forte in

~ Aaand Counter took down Dolce
~ Sent our Margaret
~ Aerial Ace KO'ed Hitmontop
~ Bruno sent out Machamp; I left Margaret in
~ Thank Arceus she's faster

~ Fortunately, it didn't take as long as I thought; Earthquake ended Machamp's wrecking career
~ Bruno sent out Hitmonlee; I sent out Forte
~ Revived and healed Margaret
~ Healed Forte

~ Switched to Margaret
~ Margaret fortunately lived Ice Shard, so I sacrificed her to heal Xiao Pai
~ Sent out Xiao Pai
~ Switched to Vishnal
~ Vishnal somehow survived Low Kick, but then lost to sand
~ Sent out Forte
~ Healed Xiao Pai
~ Sand took down Weavile
~ Karen sent out Houndoom; I sent out Dolce
~ Houndoom was faster, but wasted a turn on Nasty Plot and thus allowed Dolce to KO it with Earthquake
~ Karen sent out Spiritomb; I left Dolce in
~ Dolce took out over half its HP with Earthquake, then Spiritomb KO'ed itself with Curse
~ Karen sent out Honchkrow; I sent out Forte
~ This thing can't do a thing to Steelix

~ Karen's been defeated!


~ Lance sent out Salamence; I sent out Xiao Pai
~ Set up rocks; unfortunately, that's all Xiao Pai can really do this time

~ Sent out Vishnal
~ Ice Shard finished Salamence off

~ It couldn't deal well with Discharge

~ Revived Dylas at the cost of Xiao Pai's health
~ Sent out Vishnal
~ Misclicked and used Ice Shard >>
~ Lance used his Full Restore, ughhhhh
~ And Waterfall could only take out half of Charizard's health.......
~ For some reason Charizard used Air Slash instead of Flamethrower; Vishnal may live to KO it!
~ He did and took down Charizard with Waterfall; unfortunately, the sandstorm brought him down
~ Lance sent out Dragonite; I sent out Dylas
~ Revived Vishnal; Dylas fainted
~ Revived Xiao Pai; Vishnal fainted
~ Sent out Xiao Pai
~ Revived Vishnal
~ For some reason Dragonite thought it'd be a good idea to use Draco Meteor twice (once against Vishnal and once against Xiao Pai)
~ Sent out Vishnal
~ Revived Dylas
~ Healed Vishnal
~ Fire Blast barely did anything to Vishnal thanks to the Sp. Atk. drop from Draco Meteor
~ Revived Xiao Pai
~ Dragonite's really trying, but it used Draco Meteor again so now its Sp. Atk. is really low
~ Healed Dylas and Xiao Pai
~ Oh hey Lance had another Full Restore
~ Healed Vishnal
~ Went back on the offensive
~ Dragonite finally went down thanks to Ice Shard + sand
~ Lance sent out Altaria; I left Vishnal in
~ Oh well, Ice Shard did Altaria in
~ Lance has been defeated, and I am done the challenge! \o/

My final team:


Margaret / He was #011! (@ BrightPowder)
Level 56 / Female
Adamant / Tangled Feet
Return / Aerial Ace / U-turn / Whirlwind
Trainer's Note: As expected, she didn't really deal many kills, though she made for a good sacrifice! Didn't even get to use Whirlwind, either, orz

Dolce / Bitter Rivalry (@ Choice Scarf)
Level 59 / Female
Lonely / Sturdy
Slam / Fury Attack / Earthquake / Thunder Fang
Trainer's Note: Dolce was somewhat useful, what with her Thunder Fang and Earthquake. She got some kills, which is good.

Xiao Pai / Harsh Weather (@ Leftovers)
Level 60 / Female
Naughty / Sand Stream
Dig / Stealth Rock / Crunch / Earthquake
Trainer's Note: With the ability to summon infinite sand, set up rocks, and take hits while dealing a lot of damage (and taking down many Pokemon), Xiao Pai was my MVP.

Dylas / Hoenn Confirmed! (@ Expert Belt)
Level 59 / Genderless
Careful / Magnet Pull
Flash Cannon / Discharge / SonicBoom / Thunder Wave
Trainer's Note: Dylas was useful as a defensive Pokemon, and he did get in some kills. Kinda wish I could've evolved him into Magnezone, but it's not in the Hoenn Dex in RSE, so.

Vishnal / Unity (@ Muscle Band)
Level 59 / Male
Careful / Shell Armor
Waterfall / Surf / Ice Shard / Strength
Trainer's Note: I didn't need Surf for Mt. Silver after all :V Anyway, Vishnal's bulk was nice, and Ice Shard + Waterfall made him pretty handy to have around.

Forte / Wild Card (@ Shell Bell)
Level 58 / Female
Calm / Rock Head
Rock Slide / Rock Climb / Gyro Ball / Curse
Trainer's Note: Amazing physical bulk made even more amazing with Curse, Forte's my best defensive Pokemon. Her Attack was also pretty good once boosted with Curse or Swagger and helped her take down plenty of Pokemon.

I'm entering the Elite 4 with everyone at level 63 or 64. It's also one of the rare times that, while facing the Elite Four, I have Serebii and Bulbapedia up to help with type match-ups and to know the enemy team/move rosters. I feel like I need the handicap since this team will struggle if I'm careless.

Ironworks Chamber

I lead with Toxicroak and finish off Klefki with 2 Earthquakes. I use my other frog against Probopass, since unlike its cousin, Politoed can stomach incoming super effective moves. He managed to paralyze me, crit me, and use several Full Restores, but with my rain up, there was no stopping this train. I also sent in my Malamar to play with Aegislash. He used King's Shield, and Contrary's increased the attack sharply. Malamar sweeps the rest of Wilkstrom's team.

Blazing Chamber

Oh baby, it's getting hot in here. I'll let Politoed kick off this one. Oh oh oh Pyroar begins with Noble Roar, lowering my Special Attack, so it actually survives Surf. I predict the Full Restore and order Hydro Pump. Kitty got wet. I send out Crustle to deal with Talonflame, which tries to squeeze in a Brave Bird that takes about 25% of my health. I had equipped a Shell Bell on this beauty, so I heal up a bit after unleashing Rock Slide on the enemy. I'm not liking anticipating the Torkoal's Earthquake, so I use Banette for this match-up. I have some trouble with pulling off a 3OHKO. Hmm. I had to use a Hyper Potion. I forgo using Sucker Punch for the Shadow Claw, yet failed to outspeed Chandelure so Banette fainted. Politoed is able to clean up the damage.

Flood Chamber

Let's see what Luxray is capable of with Wild Charge. He OHKO's Clawitzer, haha. Gyarados scares me away so I switch in for Malamar. Gyarados's Intimidate sharply increases my attack. Two Night Slashes take care of that behemoth. I decide to keep my squid in against Barbaracle and unleash my Superpower.
:O! Barbaracle survived with like 15 HP! OH NO X-SCISSOR NO Malamar survived with 2 HP. Welp. I know my favorite team player now. He uses a Full Restore so my Night Slash doesn't kill. Oops, He uses a second Full Restore that I predict and go straight in for the Superpower, which ends that one. Incoming Starmie! I ask the folks if I should stick with Malamar or switch to Luxray. Decided to stay in. I have to heal my bae up, but Starmie fights on with Dazzling Gleam. Aww. No good, I'm in the yellow already. #tradecorner has failed me!
I switch in Luxray, which gets hit by a soft Dazzling Gleam. On the next turn, my Quick Claw activates and Luxray rekts Starmie.

Dragonmark Chamber

I miss my Toxicroak, so out he goes! I hear Dragalge doesn't like EQs, so there it goes! Her Pokemon is in the red, which triggers an unfortunate Full Restore loop. Stay down, you kelp dragon. Oh jeez, here comes in the Noivern. Taste the Ice Beam. Surprisingly, it survived that. Altaria also survives my Ice Beam. Hey, I know I caught a random Poliwhirl, but c'mon! I push through with more icicles to obliterate Altaria and Druddigon.
Oh, Druddy used Dragon Tail and brought out frog cousin! If you insist.. Oh bother, Toxicroak didn't finish it off and got hit with another Dragon Tail, which brought out.... frog cousin! I guess I'm just going to have to end Drasna with Politoed like I planned, huh, you crazy old lady. You don't even deserve an Ice Beam; you get a measly Echoed Voice. Shall we move on?

Radiant Chamber

I begin with Mega-Evolving Banette, but Hawlucha poisons me with Poison Jab. I either resist or am immune to its attacks, so I don't mind. Shadow Claw ends Hawlucha and Gourgeist easily. I use Politoed against Tyrantrum, but Ice Beam doesn't OHKO it. Tyrantrum faints itself from the recoil of its Head Smash, which left quite a dent.
I think Crustle needs to get in the action, and Aurorus is the perfect set-up Pokemon haha. I use Shell Smash while it uses Reflect, gosh. Aurorus avoids my Rock Slide and I avoid its Blizzard, yeah. I use Rock Slide and a flinched Aurorus can't move. OH YEAH. My Rock Slide ends Aurorus. Sammi must have blessed my Unity Pokemon. :D
I use a weakened Politoed against Goodra, but I manage to survive a Dragon Pulse. I sure do leave it up to the RNG gods to help me! I use another Hyper Potion so I'm able to unleash a chain of Ice Beam.
Malamar, Politoed, Toxicroak, and Banette can't handle Mega Gardevoir, so I'm trying Luxray. Luxray can't finish it in one hit and I keep having to heal it. Sadly, I switched in Banette to take a killing blow. Hm. I'm stumped.
I send in Politoed again and try a Surf, but Thunderbolt connects first. It doesn't matter because Politoed survives like a champ and finishes off Gardevoir with Surf. :D

And so my challenge has come to a close. I trained all my team into the 60s, and then took on the Elite 4. I started with Malva because she seemed like the easiest one for my team, and I was right, she was really easy. Wikstrom wasn't too hard but not too easy either. Drasna was about the same as Wikstrom. Siebold though, Siebold was the bane of my existence. He was even harder than Diantha. His Clawitzer was surprisingly my biggest hurdle, as I really didn't have much to use against it. Diantha was great, I was able to use one of each of my Pokemon for each of her team mates, and it worked out great. Mega vs Mega, I won.

Final Team:


Harsh Weather



Wild Card

Stay tuned for a special preview of a future event coming to the Challenges Forum...

Wow, lots of activity right at the buzzer. Curious what this upcoming challenge will be, but I think I'm seeking out a breeding club now. I'm actually pretty good at that stuff, maybe better at it than challenges (saying that even with my quick performance here).

Breeder extraordinaire. Semi-competent battler. :P

Let's just say that training this team while dealing with the busiest week at work was not an easy task. The Elite Four wasn't too much for me. I made it difficult on myself by choosing two NFE Pokemon as well as something weaker like Butterfree, but it all worked out for the best. Except Siebold...yeah ♥♥♥♥ him. lol I actually lost to him and had to retry. My MVP was definitely Espeon, even though his level doesn't reflect it. But I was really rushing at this point. Challenge complete, birds!

This was Necrum's first time to run an event and he did great! Make sure you all thank him!
