Welcome to the 3rd version of The Username Letter Challenge!

This challenge is very simple! All you got to do is take the 6 first letters of your username and choose any Pokemon that start with those letters, but if you have numbers in your username, ignore those. and just use the letters, also if your username is less than 6 letters, base your team depending how much letters your username have.

For Example my username is LilJz1234, my team would be Lileep, Illumise, Lotad, Jynx & Zubat. Since I only got 5 letters in my username and the rest are just numbers, my team will be composed of 5 members.

Rules:
° Trading is permitted BUT the level of that Pokemon must be on par with the ones on your team
° Hacking a Pokemon is allowed ONLY if the Pokemon you're planning on using isn't available to catch in your game
° Legendaries are permitted to only one per team
° HM slaves are allowed but they must not be a member of your team
° Your Pokemon must always keep the same first letter of it's name, so if your letter was an M and you caught a Mankey and you want to evolve it into a Primeape, you can't since they don't share the same first letter. Changing it's name does not count and therefore doesn't bypass this rule.

Here's a list of the Pokemon by letters

The challenge ends when you:
RBY/FRLG: Defeat your rival after the Elite 4
R/S/E: Defeat Steven
GSC/HGSS: Defeat Red on Mt. Silver
DPPt: Defeat Cynthia after the Elite 4
BW: Defeat Alder
B2W2: Deafeat Iris

    I have seven letters in my name, does that mean that I would have one more pokemon that I can switch out and in my team whenever or just use the first 6?

      Yes, you can. You can use the starters until you find one of the Pokemon you're using and then you box it for the rest of the game, or you hack one Pokemon from the beginning.

        I haven't been on in a while and this looks interesting so I'm gonna try it :D

        Username:joshbl56
        Game(s):Black
        Team(s): (J)ellicent, (O)shawott, (S)woobat, (H)axorus, (B)eartic, (L)ampent

        Wow, this will basically have me carry around two pokemon half the time XD
        Question: Can we use a hack version (Like Volt White or Blaze Black) instead of originals? If so, I would like to use Blaze Black instead but with the same team :3

        Of course you can use hacks, we wouldn't want anyone to feel left out of this challenge, would we?

        Does Blaze Black have the exact same Pokemon as in Black? If so, you can

        Blaze Black is a hack that actually puts all the pokemon into the game. I mainly wanted to use it because the trainers and gyms are harder and have more pokemon for experience.

          OK, so I was checking, and it seems that Ivysaur, Roselia and Electabuzz can not be found in Emerald, only by trade, so can I hack them in? And if so where should I put them? (Route ??? or something) I'm thinking about putting Ivysaur as my starter and Electabuzz in New Maulville (I think that's the name), and Roselia in Route 117, where you can find it in Ruby/Saphire.

          Yea, put Ivysaur as your starter and Electabuzz you can put him wherever you want, and Roselia put it in the route where it can usually be found

            OK, thanks, I'll be putting Electabuzz in New Maulville because that's where you find the other eletric types of the game, seems more appropriate.

                To fast forward while playing the game? Yes. Unless you're talking about another speed button?

                  LOL, yep it's that, Pokémon's only flaw is that it's too slow.

                      UPDATE #1
                      Spoiler:
                      Hacked Roselia, Ivysaur and Electabuzz in.
                      Chose Ivysaur as starter.
                      Let the fun begin!
                      Grinded Ivysaur to LVL 10 to fight May!
                      Wiped the floor with her! YAY!
                      Got my Pokéballs and running shoes.
                      Ralts appears as first Pokémon on Route 102, so sad I can't capture it.
                      Wally gets MY RALTS! ARRRRRGGGGHHHH!
                      Ivysaur gets to LVL 15.

                      End of day 1.

                      LVL 15

                      Okay, I'm gonna update for tonight because I'm pretty annoyed at my game right now.

                      Pokemon Blaze Black
                      Badges: 1
                      Required Pokemon: 2 after I evolve woobat

                      Spoiler:

                      *Started the game as a girl (cause I can be one) named Emilia
                      *Chose Oshawott (Clyde), thus completing one part of my team
                      *Easily beat Cheren and Bianca easily and then off to see the Professor
                      *After talking and going through the tutorial, I quickly caught a Sentret for an HM slave for later as well as grinding Clyde up to level 11
                      *Fought N with only Clyde and was able to defeat him
                      *Quickly went through Route 2 with a little more grinding to get Clyde to 14 as well as beating Bianca again (with only 1 pokemon)
                      *Up to Striaton City, I lost my first 2 fights against Cheren (mainly thanks to his Snivy and it's apparent high defense) but was able to win after some more grinding (Clyde was level 16 when he finally beat Cheren)
                      *Quickly went to deposit Sentret and grab the elemental monkey (to be the Cutter for a bit)
                      *Finally challenged the gym, where I lost TONS of times, thanks to him having 6 grass pokemon and it being a rotation battle. After grinding Clyde to level 20 (and him leveling to 21 during the fight), I was able to win while using Fury Cutter constantly.
                      *Afterwards, had to help the dream girl get some Mist from Munna and then up Route 2
                      *Fought Cheren twice; First time I lost, grind to level 24 and then beat him
                      *Being a nice person (and it being required by the game), I helped out the little girl Bianca was towing
                      *Got into Wellspring Cave and quickly searched around for a woobat, which I caught and named Samantha
                      *Put Samantha to the front and then switched out when needed to slow level it up a level while beating Plasma
                      *After helping Bianca, I went and kicked around some kids who wanted to fight and then went to grind for a bit to get Samantha's level higher

                      Pokemon on team:
                      Spoiler:

                      Clyde the Oshawott
                      Level 25
                      Moves:
                      Revenge
                      Fury Cutter
                      Water Pulse
                      Razor Shell


                      Samantha the Woobat
                      Level 20
                      Moves:
                      Odor Sleuth
                      Gust
                      Assurance
