THE WEDLOCKE CHALLENGE

Rules.
1. FAINTED POKEMON ARE DEAD
When a Pokemon faints, it must be released forever (or boxed permanently). It is considered to be dead.

2. ONLY CATCH THE 1ST ELIGIBLE POKEMON IN AN AREA.
You can catch or obtain only the first eligible obtainable Pokemon you encounter in any route or area, with exceptions being made based on the Pokemon's gender. Fail to catch it and you get nothing for the area.
• Genderless Pokemon cannot be caught. Ever. (Unless playing a 'rainbow wedlocke' see point 6.)
• If you have 1, 3, or 5 Pokemon in your party, you ignore any Pokemon encounters whose gender you have an uneven number of, e.g. if you have just one male Pokemon and two female Pokemon, you cannot catch any more female Pokemon until the count is even again. If you have an even number of each gender, this does not apply.
• "Dupes Clause" is recommended, to add to the uniqueness of each Pokemon. This means you do not count any encounter against any Pokemon whose species you have already caught, which is usually determined by the Poke Ball symbol by their HP bar.

3. ALL POKEMON MUST BE NICKNAMED
This is to increase the bond between you and your Pokemon. They're not just randoms; they're your friends. Treat them accordingly.

4. YOUR POKEMON ARE "PARTNERED" WITH EACH OTHER AND FIGHT IN PAIRS
• Only one male and one female can form a pair, and once they do, it lasts until one dies or is released.
• Each Pokemon on your team can battle only alongside its partner, if it has one. Switching Pokemon out in battle is allowed, but ONLY for the Pokemon's partner.
• If a Pokemon dies in battle, its partner must avenge the fallen Pokemon or die along with them; switching to any other Pokemon is forbidden, regardless of circumstance. (In the case of Double or Triple Battles, you may have to make exceptions. Do what feels right.)
• If a Pokemon's partner dies, it can gain a new one that doesn't already have a partner (either from a PC box or a wild Pokemon)

5. YOU CANNOT DEPOSIT POKEMON TO YOUR PC
• You must release Pokemon or have them die in battle if you want to withdraw anything in your PC.
• You can freely release your Pokemon (up to you if it counts as a "death" or not), but you will probably feel like a jerk for doing it.
• If you absolutely require HM moves to get through the game, you may temporarily break this rule and deposit a pair of Pokemon in the PC for one or two HM Pokemon; however, they cannot fight or do anything other than use HM moves outside of battle, and should be removed as soon as one of your main Pokemon can use the required HM move.

6. A variation of this would be a Rainbow wedlocke, in this challenge you use the nature of the pokemon to show its preference.
  • 8 natures like the opposite gender
  • 6 natures like only males
  • 6 natures only like females
  • 3 natures are counted as 'any' and can be paired with anyone and any genderless mons that have the applicable nature
  • 2 natures are known as 'aces' and can only be paired with other Aces or genderless pokemon of the compatible nature, these can be switched too but cannot be switched out

Optional Rules:
Spoiler:
A black out is game over.
You must change your battle style to SET.
You can only use the Poke Center a number of times per town.
You can only buy a certain number pokeballs per town.
You must only use Pokeballs to catch pokemon.
You cannot catch legendary pokemon.
You may not heal outside the use of Pokémon Centers and moves such as Softboiled.
You may not heal outside of healing items and moves such as Softboiled.
You may not heal outside of battle.
Pick your starter based on the last digit of the Trainer ID (1,2,3 = grass type starter, 4,5,6 = fire type starter, 7,8,9 = water type starter, 0 either move a digit to the left or choose yourself).


When the Challenge Ends:

FR/LG - Defeat the Elite Four and the Champion
R/S - Defeat the Elite Four and the Champion
E - Defeat the Elite four and the Champion (optional defeat Steven)

Okay I will add you to the list, and you can randomise them by using a sight like Random.org

    The Wedlocke Challenge in Randomized Pokémon Diamond




    CHAPTER 1 - I'm already crying!

    So, I randomized my game and started. Starters? Ohh, they're really interesting...


    My Trainer's ID ends with 4, so I will take Chimchar or should I say Grumpig? Anyway, there isn't much to say, only that a lot of my Pokémon already died. I just beat Jupiter after big sacrifice from Joshua and Gabriela. I think more interesting part is the Encounters, Pairs & Deaths part.

    But my pairs right now are only Alfonso and Zarina AND Samuel and Morena. I plan on catching my new pair on new available Routes.

    I should also post my randomized nature list for Rainbow part:
    Spoiler:
    Opposites
    Lonely
    Gentle
    Jolly
    Calm
    Quirky
    Hardy
    Serious
    Naive

    Males Only
    Naughty
    Rash
    Bold
    Sassy
    Bashful
    Quiet

    Female Only
    Timid
    Docile
    Relaxed
    Impish
    Careful
    Mild

    Any
    Brave
    Lax
    Modest

    Ace
    Adamant
    Hasty


    Encounters, Pairs & Deaths


    Starter - My ID ends with 4, so it would be middle Pokéball - Male Gentle Grumpig, nicknamed Joshua
    Route 201 - Female Calm Lanturn, nicknamed Gabriela - paired with Joshua
    Route 202 - Female Naive Nidoqueen, nicknamed Zarina
    Route 203 - Male Bashful Swinub, nicknamed Felix
    Route 204 - Male Gentle Espeon, nicknamed Isaac - paired with Zarina
    Oreburgh gate - Male Gentle Ivysaur, nicknamed Samuel
    Route 207 - Female Gentle Dusknoir, nicknamed Morena - can be paired with Samuel / paired
    Oreburgh Mine - Male Wartortle - knocked down

    Isaac fainted to wild Teddiursa

    Ravaged Path - Male Sassy Whismur, nicknamed Thiago - paired with Felix

    Thiago fainted in Double Battle in Route 204

    Valley Windworks - Male Brave Ralts, nicknamed Alonso - paired with Felix
    Route 205 - Female

    Felix fainted in battle against Piplup

    Eterna Forest - Male Farfetch'D - And I ran out of Pokéballs

    Alonso and Zarina are now pair

    Route 211 - Female Mild Sentret, nicknamed Ana

    Gabriela and Joshua died against Jupiter :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: Her Skuntank survived with 2 HP after long battle against Joshua. And he only had Psychic-Type moves and Confuse Ray and Splash. But I was unlucky and each confusion lasted only one turn.

    And finally, let's remember our fainted members:


    Team




    Alonso, Brave Male Ralts
    lvl 17, Synchronize
    - Growl

    Well guess it is time for me to post an update myself for HeartGold (I figured I'd get the longest game out the way first).

    Currently I have just gotten the medicine for Amphy and am heading to Mahogany town to do the lake of Rage and Team Rocket stuff before taking on Chuck, Jasmine and Pryce just so the levels aren't laughably low and can provide somewhat of a challenge. At this point I have already had 10 deaths and most of them were either to wild pokemon or random trainers, this also means that I don't have very many females left in my PC (only three) so I need to get more in case any of my females die.

    Jay
    Level: 25
    Nature: Quiet

    The Wedlocke Challenge in Randomized Pokémon Diamond




    FINAL UPDATE

    I finally had some time to play and completed the game. I originally played about a week ago and saved right before E4, but forget to post some kind of update. And today I continued and beat the E4.

    Anyway, I enjoyed the whole thing. It was first 'locke I did in a while (I think last one was Communitylocke). I had hard time remembering not to switch Pokémon that weren't pair, but got used to it in the end. The Rainbow thing was fun. I kinda cheated for few Routes with Alonso and Synchronize, but he got killed pretty soon.

    I also soloed E4 with only Bautista and Araceli. They are so cute together.

    And another funny thing just crossed my mind. My whole final team is made from Kanto Pokémon or their evolutions from next gens.

    More info can be found in Encounters, Pairs & Deaths section. But here's Hall of Fame:
    Spoiler:


    Encounters, Pairs & Deaths


    Mt. Coronet - Female Mild Loudred, nicknamed Pastora
    Route 208 - Female Brave Houndour, nicknamed Lia

    Pastora and Lia paired

    Route 209 - Female Brave Bibarel, nicknamed Ines (on the Route with Cyndaquil and Infernape)
    Lost Tower - Mesprit, but I don't do legendaries, so Male Brave Umbreon, nicknamed Gael

    Morena dies to random Shellos
    Pastora and Lia dies right after to Bonsly
    Alonso dies to wild Magmar
    That's 4 deaths in Lost Tower... What just happened?

    New pairs

    Gael and Zarina
    Samuel and Ines

    I'll wait for another pair to form

    Route 210 - Female Hardy Probopass, nicknamed Alma
    Route 215 - Male Rash Raticate, nicknamed Iker
    Route 214 - Male Careful Rhyperior, nicknamed Bautista
    Valor Lakefront - Male Jolly Machoke, nicknamed Hector
    Route 2013 - Female Calm Cherubi, nicknamed Fatima
    Great Marsh - Male Bashful Lopunny, nicknamed Cesar
    Route 211 - Female Squirtle - ran out of Pokéballs again
    Route 218 - Male Lax Gible, nicknamed Didac
    Lake Verity - Female Hardy Horsea, nicknamed Araceli
    Route 216 - Male Docile Riolu, nicknamed Inhue

    Samuel died to Lopunny

    Route 217 - Male Quiet Croconaw, nicknamed Jorge
    Acuity Lakefront - Female Jolly Omanyte, nicknamed Micaela

    Inhue and Ines are now a pair... And they died at next Gym

    Route 222 - Female Naive Mr.Mime, nicknamed Catalina
    Route 223 - Male Lax Venusaur, nicknamed Josue

      The Wedlocke Challenge
      In Pokémon Omega Ruby

      Deaths: 0 | Badges: 0

      Finally started this run and I gotta say it's exciting so far.
      • I chose Mudkip as my starter and nicknamed him Tusk.
      • In Route 101, I caught the DéxNav Poochyena with Fire Fang and named her Velma.

        Tusk and Velma paired together!

      • In Route 102, a male Ralts called Milton joined us! He has Shadow Sneak as his special move.
      • Route 104 gave us a female Zigzagoon! Named her Shelly.

        Milton and Shelly paired together!

      • Deep in the Petalburgh Woods, Stella, the Shroomish joined the team!

        Rustboro Gym Battle - Roxanne

        Led with Tusk and she with Geodude. It hung on a Water Gun with Sturdy and slowed Tusk down with a Rock Tomb, so I had to switch up to Velma against Nosepass.
        Velma bit it but a Rock Tomb took half her health, so I switched back to Tusk. A few Water Guns later and Nosepass was knocked out.

        Tusk evolved!

        Badge Obtained!

        An old man named Mr. Stone asked me to deliver some letter to a guy called Steven, near Dewford Town. We shall go there then!

        I did some training on Milton to get ready to challenge Dewford Town's Gym Leader, Brawly.

        Dewford Gym Battle - Brawly

        I led with Milton and the battle was practically his. Set up 4 Double Teams and spammed Confusion in the rest of the battle. Was pretty easy.

        Badge Obtained!

        That concludes this segment, now to the team:
