Hello, everyone! I was sorta inspired to do this because of Solar's old "Camp Littleroot" challenge, and "Take Care" is an unevolved scramble!

Here's the rules for scrambles and unevolved runs:

Scramble Rules:

1. You can only use Pokemon that other members choose for you. You can't say no, unless the Pokemon they give you is on the "banned" list.

2. Any Pokemon can be chosen, except for the following: Magikarp, Unown, Beldum, Feebas, Togepi, Sunkern, Ditto, Wobbuffet, Wynaut, Cosmog, and Cosmoem. Evolutions for these Pokemon may be chosen, though. Unevolved Pokemon can also be chosen, meaning that if someone gives you a Grotle you won't be able to evolve it into Torterra!

3. You can't use multiple Pokemon from the same evolution family. If one person gives you a Treecko, you can't use Sceptile in that challenge.

4. To increase variety, one person can only choose up to two Pokemon for your team. This stops one member from choosing your entire lineup, and makes it more fun for other people to get involved.

5. If you aren't able to catch a Pokemon that's been given to you (or if it's only available in the late game), you may trade over an egg of that Pokemon so you can use it earlier. It should be an egg so you don't get the trade EXP bonus when it hatches. If you aren't able to obtain an egg yourself, you can either request on in our Trading Forums or turn down the recommendation.

6. You can use your starter Pokemon until you're able to obtain one of the Pokemon that was chosen from you. No other Pokemon can be used, and as soon as you get your hands on one of your chosen Pokemon, you need to box or release your starter.

Unevolved Challenge Rules:

1. You can NOT evolve any of your Pokemon- get ready to mash that B button! No using Mega Evolution, either.

2. If you catch a Pokemon that has already evolved (e.g. Trumbeak) that's totally fine. You just aren't allowed to evolve any Pokemon yourself.

3. Similarly, Pokemon that don't evolve can be used again. As long as you haven't evolved it, it's fair game!

4. No legendaries- even though they don't evolve, using them defeats the purpose of doing this challenge in the first place.

I'm going to try to do stories for my scrambles, so they'll update a bit more slowly compared to Back to Basics, but hopefully I'll still be able to update this regularly!

Here's the party I was given. Like with "Feeling Blue," I asked that I have half of my party prior to gym 4, and since it's an unevolved run, I asked for unevolved and single stage Pokemon.

Outside of Vulpix, I haven't really used any of these Pokemon, so this should be fun! My team is *really* weak to water types, though...but at least we don't have to deal with Misty early on, right?

I am really looking forward to this run, and I'm hoping to start on it as soon as I can! I hope y'all enjoy it too!

Yep, I'm here for this challenge too. Small comfort, perhaps, but Water-types don't look so bad compared to your matchup against Ground-types...

It didn't really balance the team, but Phanpy is a pretty strong pokemon even involved, so I was banking on that power to be helpful, even if the balance isn't great.
Heres hoping that wasn't a bad decision.
Go little blue elephant!
