Trick 'r Treat Challenge (Open for Feedback!)

    Trick 'r Treat Challenge (Open for Feedback!)

    Happy Halloween, once again, Challengers! I do apologize for the tardiness, I am at the beginning of my new classes. It's time again for my favorite holiday of the year, and that means another Halloween Challenge! This year's theme is, well, Trick or Treating! The grand tradition performed all across the US (idk about other countries on Halloween, I'll be honest), Trick or Treating is the act of going door to door on Hallow's Eve, asking for candy. Not giving candy is meant to incite a prank on the Scrooge. Hence, Trick or Treat.

    In today's challenge, we will be taking both concepts, and applying them to Pokemon.

    The Treat
    Every sign up will be accompanied by a treat, in the form of a Pokemon you love. This "treat" is claimed by the next individual to sign up for a challenge, allowing for a small amount of control regarding what Pokemon you receive.

    The Trick
    In addition to the Treat, everyone will also include a Trick in their sign up form. However, instead of a Pokemon, the Trick is a rule that must be followed by the user who signed up BEFORE you. You may contest a trick you deem to be too unfun or too challenging. If the trickster disagrees, I will make the call. If it is accepted as too much, you will be given a new rule. You may start playing before receiving your Trick, but as soon as it's given you must adhere to it!

    1. Your challenge must be performed on a main series Pokemon game, sequel, or remake.
    2. You may trade or hack for Pokemon that you cannot obtain any other way in your game. Hacked Pokemon should be made as legally as possible, and trading should happen when you reach the level of the traded Pokemon.
    3. In your sign up post, include the phrase "Hello, hello" somewhere in the text to prove you read the rules.
    4. Your game must be played on a new save file, and ends upon defeating the champion or Ghetsis.
    5. The Challenge must be completed before November 1st.

    A) Until you are given a Trick, you are free to play normally until one is given to you.
    B) NFE Treats may be evolved to their highest stage.

    Trick: One Pokemon on your team must be Burned before fighting Gyms and Rivals. (gonna have the first rival battle become an exception to this) (you're scot-free for the Elite Four and Champion :D)
    Treat: Salamence (or Dragonite, if you plan on playing the first and second generation)

    [Nickname time!]
    1. ___'s Chainsaw Massacre (Shiftry) [SolidSnake]
    2. Murder at ___ Manor (Swampert) [Sanik]
    3. Guardian of the Aztec Temple: ___ (Salamence) [Bowser]
    4. ___'s Cyber Death Game (Gardevoir) [Zelda or Sheik]
    5. Five Nights At ___'s (Gengar) [Freddy]
    6. Flareon [Jill or Doug, from Drill Dozer]

    Hello, hello! I will most likely hack Flareon in the game near the very beginning, as I don't have the National Dex that early in the game. Plus, Eevee won't be able to evolve if I hack that in as a precursor to Flareon. I wonder if hacking the Flareon in after leaving Littleroot would be okay (or considered as legal as I could possibly have it), so I would like some feedback before attempting this run.

    EDIT: I don't think I'll be able to complete my run of this event. This is mostly due to my school work and exam schedule. I've had a lot of field trips to attend (as well as take notes on for a report) as well as a large amount of time studying (nearly an exam every week >.<). I was really looking forward to doing this :(

    Trick: Every time your opponent gets a critical hit, the pokemon that got hurt HAS to beat the opponent's pokemon that got the crit. If it faints, Revive it. If you can't, better lose the battle and rematch the trainer so you can still beat that pokemon.

    Okay so I want to do a little clarification before I take off for my trip this week. First and formost, I cannot stress enough that this is meant FOR FUN. If some aspect of the challenge is absolutely holding you away from enjoying the experience, I welcome you to say something. This is not nearly as strict as say the Monotype challenge: bending the rules a liiiitle bit within acceptable boundaries is okay.

    So, with that said, I want to directly address a concern I have received. Treats are supposed to be fun to use. Just because your favorite Pokémon is a baby does not mean it will be enjoyable for the next person after you. So, if you are given an under evolved Pokémon, you are free to evolve it as much as you like. If you are giving a Pokémon, let's try to avoid Pokémon that may ruin someone's experience. We don't need to be giving people 2 Tricks.

    Also, if you have not been given a Trick yet, you can start playing normally until one is given.
