Introduction
Welcome to The Solo Pokemon Challenge, in this challenge you will be required to play through the game using only ONE Pokemon of your choice.

Rules
1. You must beat the game with only one Pokemon.
2. HM Slaves are allowed but cannot be used in battle. If your chosen Pokemon faints and you have to send out your HM Slave you may use revives.
3. Hacking or trading your Pokemon in is perfectly fine, this allows you to use your Pokemon from start to finish. The hacked/traded Pokemon must be within legal limits, no more than 510 EVs or moves that it cannot learn. Egg moves are allowed.
4. For Pokemon that evolve via stone or item, you may hack in the item after obtaining the fourth badge if the item isn't obtainable before then. For Pokemon that evolve via trade and you are unable to do so you may change their evolution method to evolve them via level up. The level you chose to evolve them is up to you, but stay within reason.
5. Playing a Pokemon hack is allowed, however complete hacks will only count as single challenges, whereas remakes/demakes/complete pokedex/difficulty hacks, like Liquid Crystal or Blaze Black, can count towards an ultimate challenge. Challenges in Pokemon Colosseum and Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness are accepted, but only for single challenges.

Ultimate Challenges
Most of you may only want to take on the solo challenge for one game, and for those the single challenge is perfect for you! But some of you daring challengers may want to go the extra mile and take on the ultimate challenge. What is an ultimate challenge you ask? An ultimate challenge is when not only do you play through one generation using your chosen Pokemon, you play through all generations your chose Pokemon is available in. For most Pokemon that means playing through all seven generations!

For example: An ultimate challenge using Bulbasaur would require the player to play through a game for Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos and Alola, but an ultimate challenge for Snivy would only require the player to play through a game for Hoenn, Unova, Kalos and Alola.

Unfortunately since they are only available in one generation of games Pokemon from the Alola region are only eligible for single challenges. This will change in the future with the release of any new games.

I'll get around to completing my ultimate Jynx and Venusaur solos once I get my hands on a copy of Sun as I don't want to restart my main copy of Moon.

I will be adding all challengers and champions to the OP but if I updated the OP after every post I would be updating it every day or so. I tend to update every couple of days and make a new post notifying everyone that I have done so. I can't say exactly when I'll update it as I don't know right now, but expect to see your name up there soon.

Hope that helps

So for me to be listed again as an ultimate champion I am simply required to post here correct? I mean I did just finish Blaziken a week ago! So if you don't mind I'd like to be posted up there again. I'll repost everything if I have to but I'm sure it's recent enough memory where it shouldn't be an issue.

That being said I came on to update that I had finished solo Charizard, but, let me just enter it anyway here just in case.

Sign-Up Form
Username: Relica
Partner Pokemon: Charizard
Challenge: Ultimate
Game(s): Generation 6 champion, Moon

Moon was awful to go through. I am tired of this generation and want new games already. The challenge started easily enough due to Charmander just being able to handle anything thrown at it. Dragon Rage early on makes most places a joke. The issue is that any rock type with Sturdy just ends it. This made it extremely frustrating especially against Olivia where my winning run was to get lucky in both of her battles. If I have to rely on Focus Blast one more time I think I'll rip my hair out. That being said just the same thing as always. Being over leveled really helps and Charizard's decent special attack and speed made it easily doable.

Anyway, I don't know if I'll do anymore solo runs for a bit. I was thinking of swapping to monotypes or something else for a bit. Maybe I'll do something extremely like a Ledyba ultimate challenge but right now I'm just pooped.

Since there seems to be a bit of confusion regarding challenges on the old thread I'll try to clear some of that up. Whether or not someone has progress in the old solo challenge thread you still need to fill out a new sign-up form as this is a new thread. That of course doesn't mean you need to start your challenge over, just that you need to fill out the form again.

I added another section to the form for everyone to say whether or not they have any previous progress from the old thread. If you don't have previous progress just say no and continue on with your sign-up, but if you do have previous progress say yes and state what game(s) you have started or finished for your challenge. Of course if your list is as large as Kostucha's is for example I wouldn't make you fill out a new form for every single one, just list all the completed challenges as he did and that'll be fine. If you use the format that he did as well that would make things a lot easier for me to update the OP as he stated every Pokemon in each game he completed them in.

I won't be going back and forth between this thread and the old one every time someone says they have progress in the old thread. It's okay for everyone that has posted so far but to any posts after this please make sure to include a sign-up or at least a list of all your completed challenges.

Thanks everyone :]
