    7th Gen Scramble Challenge Thread!

    Games in this gen: SM

    What is a "Scramble Challenge"?

    The Scramble Challenge involves playing through the storyline and beating the game seeing the credits) with a team of six Pokemon which are assigned to you by other people on this forum. You may also be given certain guidelines, limitations, and restrictions concerning the Pokemon, usually by the person who suggested the Pokemon themselves. However, you may also create limitations for yourself.

    The goal of the Scramble Challenge is to be able to complete the game without using the most powerful Pokemon, or your own favorites. It encourages you to think outside the box and make the most of what you are given.

    Scramble Challenge Rules:


    • Please read the Challenge Forum rules before posting.
    • Always mention your planned team (based on others' responses) when you ask for more team members, so others know what has already been suggested.
    • You may create your own set of (minor) restrictions concerning gameplay - just be sure to mention those as well. If you have a lot of/and or major restrictions though consider using the 'Hit Me With Your Best Shot!' threads instead.
    • Just because of the fact that not everyone is on the same level experience-wise, you may reject team suggestions. However, please don't abuse this. If you feel that you need a really easy challenge, say so.
    • Typically, no Legendaries and no duplicates are allowed. Apparently, trading in any form (except for evolution) is discouraged, as well as post-Nat. Dex Pokémon, but if you wish to use a traded Pokemon you may,
    • Note that it's your game, and you can change the difficulty, limitations, and pretty much anything else, to suit your playing style. For example, if you want to breed in one game and send things over.
    • Please limit your suggestions to one per team (if it's rejected, you may suggest again), so that everyone can contribute. If the challenger's team goes two or more pages without a suggestion, you may suggest a maximum of an extra one, but no more.
    • Purposely giving challengers blatantly terrible choices (Lillipup that may not evolve at all, etc.) is against the spirit of the game and will not be tolerated.
    • Make sure all your suggestions are directed clearly. Using "@" is encouraged.
    • Enjoy! It's a game, after all!

    As I have both games and I am about half way through Moon. I want to let variety reign and get a scramble for Sun.

    I don't like having a heap of pokes early, so a steady progression would be nice. I would like to avoid having a full team before Island 3. I encourage some themes to the pokes, so any additional little restrictions would be welcome.

    brandyjay, take a Fletchling. Catch it after you clear the Fire Trial and evolve it into Fletchinder before you beat the Grass Trial. You must then use it against the Totem Lurantis, but it doesn't need to win or even survive the battle. It must then hold the Firium Z and use it to OHKO a Water-type Pokemon before it can become a Talonflame. If you take nicknames, name it Lowborn.

    brandyjay, take a Vulpix. SOS hunt for one that has snow warning. It can only evolve after it learns Blizzard and must keep Blizzard in it's move set for the rest of the game. If you take nicknames, call it Snowflake.

    If you don't feel like doing the SOS hunt, just ignore that part.

    brandyjay, take the Bounsweet obtained from the trade on route 5. To evolve into Steene, it must have fought in, but not necessarily soloed, the Totem Wishiwashi fight. To evolve into Tsareena, it must survive the Battle Royal fight. If that's too hard, then no restrictions on Tsareena evolution.

    brandyjay, take a Jangmo-o. You can catch one in Vast Poni Canyon as soon as you have access to it. There are no restrictions for its evolution in Hakamo-o; however, in order to evolve into Kommo-o, Hakamo-o must only know special moves. From that point on, you can only have special moves on Kommo-o. Clanging Scales is an obligatory move once it becomes Kommo-o.

    Yes! As long as offensive moves are only special and as long as Clanging Scales remains in the moveset.

    ~ Snowflake the Vulpix - Must have Snow Warning, must have Blizzard. Can evolve once it has learnt it.

    ~ Jangmo-o - To evolve a second time, offensive moves can only be Special, Kommo-o must know Clanging Scales.
    ~ Spinarak - No restrictions.
    ~

    I was fiddling around with stuff and I played a bit of Sun, still before 1st Trial, but I am raising a Spinarak. So I figure I'll just keep that file and use a Spinarak. So I just need one more and I can start properly.

    I'm going to get Pokemon Moon soon, so I'd like to start it with a scramble team. My only request is no Primarina, Toucannon, Vikavolt, Crabominable, Salazzle or Palossand. That was my Sun team. Thank everyone!

    Charoshi, take a Litten. Nickname it Blazin'. It can evolve into Torracat whenever, but it must solo Guzma to become Incineroar. Once it reaches its final form, you may have it know Fire moves or Dark moves, but not both (there is no restriction on moves of other types).

    ultimate_charmander , take a Shiinotic. Catch it as a Morelull in Lush Jungle, and it can't evolve until it defeats Olivia's Lycanroc in the Akala Grand Trial. Once it learns Spore and Strength Sap, they can't be forgotten. It also must be caught in a Nest ball or Luxury Ball.

    ultimate_charmander, take a Togedemaru. It must be caught in an Apricorn Ball, doesn't matter which one. It must participate in a battle against a Trial Pokemon and then in another battle against a Kahuna, doesn't matter which ones. Its final moveset must include Zing Zap, Spiky Shield and Fell Stinger, the last move is up to you. If you take nicknames, name it Little Hog.

    MonkeyNuzlocker, I'll give some restrictions for your Bewear. It must be Male and caught in a Premier Ball. You must catch it when it is night in your game. It can evolve after soloing the Trials at Lush Jungle and Mt. Hokulani. It may not know more than 2 TM moves at the same time. Also, once you have beaten the game, it must solo all trainers in Resolution Cave.

    Ok, wasn't expecting that. I planned on stopping the game after the E4, but since this is for Bewear, I will continue the game for this. I accept your constrictions onto Bewear and hope to see some other post game challenges too. (Save ultra beasts and tapus, as I want to catch these for comp on my Moon Save) BTW this run us being done in sun inb4 oranguru

    MonkeyNuzlocker, take a Slowpoke. It must be male, caught in a Heal Ball, and have the Ability Oblivious. Name him Obtuse. He must defeat at least one of Hala's and Olivia's Pokémon during the Melemele and Akala Island Grand Trials. He must only have damage-dealing moves in his moveset at all times (forget any status moves as soon as you have access to the Move Deleter.) You can choose his evolution, but he must solo two Team Skull Grunts in the Shady House prior to evolving.
