Scramble Challenge
 
There's a thread for Nuzlocke so I figured we should have one for the Scramble challenge as well.

C+Ping this from the Serebii Scramble challenge thread with a few edits:

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:
  • 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.
  • 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!

Anyways, I'll be starting my own Scramble on Firered. Only rules for me is that I must have a Surf and Fly user on my team. Suggest away~

*Opens up squad summary*

Choose one:

Hard: Start with Charmander. They may not exceed level 10 until you have reached Mt Moon.

Easy: Start with Charmander. They may not evolve until you have reached Mt Moon.

Tuner89 04-11-2012 04:55 PM

Awesome.

My rule: You must use a Beedrill the entire length of the game.

Kindrindra 04-11-2012 05:06 PM

Tuner, that's not a restriction, since he only gets the six that we decide on. :P

Concept 04-11-2012 05:09 PM

Go on, give me a team of six for LeafGreen.

First person to try to slap on some silly restriction of any kind (like "x mon can only evolve after soloing Misty!!111!!") gets my disappointment. S'not part of the original scramble challenge and I cba to remember such things. Other than that, whatever you fancy pretty much. I'll name the 'mon after the people who gave me them too, for added funsies.

EDIT the first: Charm, a Kingler for you.

EDIT the second: Team thus far;

- Persian (FishDave)
- Wigglytuff (Charm)
- Starmie (PikaGod)
- Snorlax (Tuner)
- Porygon (Talon)
- Victreebel (Ethe)

Tuner89 04-11-2012 05:18 PM

Okay, I don't get this then =\ I thought each person gave you a team member and/or special rule... =S

Concept 04-11-2012 05:23 PM

Scramble challenge, as originally conceived, consisted of six people each giving you a team member and you had to use those six mon for the game - that was it. Where this silly extra restriction thing came from I have no idea. I suppose if people ask for it, that's entirely down to them, but people tend to assume it now from what I've seen in the scramble challenge threads on SPPf and it's not really a part of it, more of an add-on.

DaveTheFishGuy 04-11-2012 05:25 PM

Charm should use a Fearow as his Flyer.

Concept, you get Persian. Enjoy.

inb4doinitrong

Charminions 04-11-2012 05:40 PM

Concept, you get a Jigglypuff.

The restrictions part is given to make it more of a challenge rather than "hey guys, give me pokemon to use for my next run."

Team de la Charm:
- Kin the Charmander, may not evolve until you have reached Mt Moon.
- Tuner the Beedrill, must be used in every gym leader, rival, and E4 fight until it faints.
- Concept the Kingler, no restriction unless he wants to give me one.
- Dave the Fearow, no restriction unless he wants to give me one.
- PikaGod the Nidoking, no restriction blah blah blah.
- Haymez the Eevee, cannot evolve.

PikaGod 04-11-2012 05:40 PM

Charm you get a Nidoking.

Concept you can have a Cloyster.

I would also like to start a challenge on Ruby, and I only want pokemon, not any restrictions.

Charminions 04-11-2012 05:45 PM

PG, you get a Surskit.

Concept 04-11-2012 05:47 PM

Cloyster's FireRed only, unfortunately. You can have a Torkoal, Pika.

DaveTheFishGuy 04-11-2012 05:48 PM

Enjoy your Grumpig, PG.

Really? Oh, then you can have a Starmie.

Tuner89 04-11-2012 05:55 PM

Concept, you're going to use a snorlax.

PG, use a Mawile.

Edit: I think I'm going to do this on Soul Silver; sounds awesome. You can give me challenges as well, but nothing too complicated(don't want to have to remember stuff)

I need a starter, and pokes that can use HM's obv. so let's hear em! =D

team:
-Charminions the Miltank (must have rollout)
-Dave the Feraligatr
-Haymez the Mamoswine(cannot be fully evolved until after the dragon gym)
-

Charminions 04-11-2012 06:00 PM

Tuner, take a Miltank. It must have Rollout in its moveset at all times.

DaveTheFishGuy 04-11-2012 06:03 PM

Take a Feraligatr as your starter, Tuna.

Talon87 04-11-2012 06:25 PM

If you don't get final say, we do: I don't understand why people aren't just being dicks and telling you "All you get is Rattata, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, and Mew." All six can be gotten in-game but would be a bitch to get with just a Rattata.

If you do get final say (so as to avoid being trolled like the above): I don't see the point in this period. Fuck making a recommendation only for it to then be ignored. :roll: :| Seems pointless.

So either way, people's behavior confuses me. (HUMANS? CONFUSING? :lol: :roll:)

But in any event ...

Concept, you can get a Porygon (ass mode ;-) =P) or a Magmar (nice mode; you said you were playing not Red, right? So Magmar should be available ...)

Why would we want to be dicks to each other?

Talon87 04-11-2012 06:37 PM

Not UPN. Serebii, /v/, wherever else. I am expressing surprise that this is a thing, that the Scramble Challenge came into being and didn't immediately fall apart.

Lonely Cubone 04-11-2012 06:44 PM

Oh fine, I'm game. Using Black, I'm good for random restrictions as well, in fact that seems more fun.

First Pokemon can pick my starter, for which I'm choosing the restriction of level up moves only. Which starter shall it be UpN?

A little more faith in the human race would be nice. :P
Personally, I think it's because only the players who legitimately want a challenge who do this, so they typically wouldn't reject most things.



Eh, why not. Imma Emerald this, so. Also, need some legitimate restrictions. But no 'must solo so-and-so', please. And I need a surfer. ._.


1) Mudkip (Surf Only)
2) Slakoth (May not evolve until level of Slakoth. Double Evolution)
3) Wurmple (Must poison three pokemon to evolve to it's last stage. Must know two nonSTAB moves)
4) Tropius (Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Synthesis, Body Slam)
5) Torkoal (Must always know Rapid Spin)
6) Feebas (Must win Beauty Contest master rank to evolve) (Maybe)

Charminions 04-11-2012 06:51 PM

LC, take a Sandile. To evolve it to Krokorok, you must solo Clay's Krokorok with it. You must defeat 10 fire types with him as a Krokorok before he can evolve to Krookodile. Have fun~

Still need 1 more pokemon before I can start my Firered.

Lonely Cubone 04-11-2012 07:04 PM

I have a crazy special rule which anyone can attach to any Pokemon if fancy it: it's moves have to match up like Dominos I.e with the last letter of one being the first of the next.

For example, a Pokemon with Arm Thrust, Tackle, Endeavour and Recover.

For bonus points, loop it back to the start. That is hard.
