The Gift Challenge
Hey Pokecommunity. After trying many challenges, I began thinking of my own. This challenge is the result of my thinking. I present to you, The Gift Challenge.

Rules
1. You cannot catch ANY Pokemon in this challenge. You must rely on in-game gift Pokemon alone (Fossil Pokemon can be classed as gift pokemon.) The only exception of this rule this that you can only catch ONE HM Slave, so you had better choose your starter wisely, or hope that one of the gift Pokemon in the game can learn the water HMs
2. Don't buy pokeballs...It's only gonna be a waste of time
3. HM slaves cannot be used in battle, only the gift Pokemon in your team.
4. Choose your game wisely, some games have more gift Pokemon than others, therefore making those games a little easier.
5. No game corner pokemon.
6. No trading from other games...would it be much of a challenge if you trade in strong pokemon?

The Challenge ends when the credits roll, Except from:
G/S/C - Beat Red at Mt.Silver
E - Beat Steven

                      Lol the idea of the challenge is to use only gift pokemon, or pokemon you can obtain without catching eg. Fossils. So there is a limit in each game of how many you can use. You sometimes won't be able to have a full team of 6. So catching pokemon for in-game trades is kinda a no no, sorry lol.

                      Also you can actually get a full team of 6 in Platinum anyways xD Your starter, The Togepi egg from cynthia, a fossil pokemon, the porygon from the guy in Veilstone city, the Riolu egg from Riley on Iron Island and the Eevee from Bebe xD
                      So in-game trades won't be needed for a full team of 6 (:

                                  I never used Kabutops before - He was awesome :3 I figured that I'd use him because I am already using omastar in another challenge- wasn't disappointed :D

                                    2nd update coming up!
                                    Of course, after a few more battles, my Oliver evolved into a Monferno, and leraned mach punch. Roark is going down! He fell down, boom, 7 more to go! I bought pokeballs (only to catch a slave for rock smash, don't worry).So i caught a machop with no name to be my Rock smash slave atm. I went and saved at Floaroma town.

                                      Very nice dude. IMO Bidoof would have been a better HM slave, it can learn Rock smash, cut and surf, but still, very nice (:

                                      Fair enough lol, Yeah Kabutops has always been my fossil choice in fire red. I absolutely love that pokemon, it has never disappointed me (:

                                            I finished my Yellow Gift Nuzlocke!

                                            Spoiler:

                                            -Now armed with Pikachu and Gyarados, I wanted to add a member of my team: my Eeveelution, Vaporeon. So, I bought a Water Stone and evolved it into Vaporeon!

                                            -Taught Vaporeon Ice Beam through the girl on the top floor of Celadon Department Store
                                            -Did Rocket Game Corner, then went to Lavender and did Pokemon Tower Event (Poke Flute was extremely useful in this run)
                                            -Went to Silph Co early to get my Lapras. This leveled my Pokemon to take down Erika.

                                            ERIKA (Badge #4)
                                            -Vaporeon's Ice Beam finished her off. I also trained Lapras at this time.

                                            -Wanted to get Surf early, so I went straight down to Fuchsia to teach Surf and Strength to Lapras and Vaporeon.
                                            -While fighting the Bikers in Cycling Road, Gyarados died. I might add: Well worth the $500 I spent on it.
                                            -To access Cinnabar early, I fought Koga.

                                            KOGA (Badge #5)
                                            -Pikachu saves the day! Thunderbolt finished them all off.

                                            -Went to Cinnabar, grinded a ton in Pokemon Mansion, then decided it was time to fight Blaine.

                                            BLAINE (Badge #6)
                                            Improper order, but this is how I do it. Vaporeon and Lapras beat him very quickly.

                                            Now back to Sabrina.

                                            SABRINA (Badge #7)
                                            I used Vaporeon and Pikachu. They both outsped and took care of Sabrina's Alakazam and Co.

                                            -A lightbulb flashed in my head! Lapras can learn Horn Drill! I went and bought 20 X Accuracy and Speed to finish the game off.

                                            GIOVANNI (Badge #8)
                                            Lapras POUNDED Gio. Two X Speeds, one X Accuracy, and this was finished. The only drawback in this plan is Lapras' pitifully low Speed. Any Pokemon like Jolteon (which my Rival has!) outspeeds and kills it.

                                            My last point became important in this next Rival fight. Knowing his Sandslash won't do much, I gave Lapras three X Speeds and an Accuracy to ensure that it outspeeds Jolteon for Horn Drill to hit.

                                            Note: Horn Drill requires your Pokemon to outspeed the other Pokemon ON TOP OF 30% Accuracy in order to hit. X Accuracy makes moves including Horn Drill hit 100% of the time. Even if you get hit with Sand Attack, Horn Drill always hits if you have X Accuracy on. I don't really need to explain what X Speed does.

                                            -Victory Road, bla bla bla. I packed a ton of Ethers and found PP Ups to make sure I can Horn Drill.

                                            LORELEI
                                            Besides Jynx, nothing on her team outspeed my Lapras (Lv.51 at this point). So only one X Speed and an Acc.

                                            BRUNO
                                            Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

                                            AGATHA
                                            This one required some preparation. As I couldn't blow her away with one-hit moves, I needed help from the supporting cast of Pika and Vaporeon. Vaporeon's great Special covered Agatha's Ghosts while knocking them out with Surf.

                                            BUT IT WASN'T THAT EASY! My trusty Pikachu died to some Gen 1 hax by Gengar. Critical Hit from Dream Eater after Pika got hit with Hypnosis. RIP(ikachu)!

                                            LANCE
                                            Time to avenge Pikachu's death!!! I didn't need to Horn Drill because Ice Beam killed them just as fast. No deaths here!

                                            CHAMPION RIVAL
                                            This battle was wild. His Sandslash outsped my Lapras, so I put on an X Speed. Stupidly, I only gave Lapras one, so that Jolteon would outspeed me when it comes out. Lapras Horn Drilled everything else without much trouble.

                                            Out comes Jolteon. And the Thunder Wave. And then the CRITICAL HIT THUNDER! Lapras, you are the weakest link.

                                            It was midnight last night when I was finishing this, and I thought I was done when Lapras went down. Just one Thunder could finish me for good, just one Pokemon away from being Champion.

                                            Then luck ensued. Rather than finishing me off with Thunder, Jolteon went with Thunder Wave, paralyzing my Vaporeon. Vaporeon countered with Surf, but my only chance was to three-hit kill Jolteon. Next move: Thunder. Oh gosh, if Jolteon's Thunder was a Critical, I was finished. For reference, it was a 25.4% chance for Joteon to crit, but a 70% chance for Thunder to hit.

                                            No critical. Vaporeon used Surf. I WIN!!

                                                The way I can see it going is

                                                Dratini

                                                (Maybe replace Kenya the Spearow with Shuckie?)

                                                Sorry, I'm a planner.
