Hello darkness my old friend...

Ok, time to try something different. I'll be doing a regular Nuzlocke of Pokemon Y this time. (And most likely remember to make a proper log of it unlike the last few :P)
So once again I need 10 pokemon; 6 for the main team and 4 reserves.
Only limits are no trade evolutions and no male-only pokemon. (Mothim, Gallade, Sawk, Throh, any others I've forgotten)

I had honestly forgot that Dragalge and Klefki were Kalos pokemon... I don't know why, but in my mind they were Alolan natives. Dragalge isn't even in Sun/Ultra Sun...

Ok, so Dragalge, Diggersby, Gogoat, Delphox and Klefki. Can honestly say I've never used any of these pokemon before, so this is shaping up to be fun already. :D Thanks to everyone so far.
Just five more pokemon needed before I can start. :3

Little more type variety here. It's not directly Kalos native but what say you to Scrafty?

can be whatever
@Moonwatcher Say, will :florges: do? If so, feel free to pick the color for this one. :winkazurill:

Anyway, now that the main part of From Light Fang to Alola has been ended, I kinda feel like doing a scramble for its Episode RR. Instead of maintaining the string sextet theme, I'd like this particular squad to be composed by two groups of three: Koh's squad and Elio's squad.
Please pick three Pokemon out of these six who made it to the String Hexalocke Hall of Fame (regardless of their instruments during the whole playthrough) :

Please note that these choices are nonrepeatable for Elio's squad even after all three slots here are full.
Please pick three of any other Pokemon available in either Moon or Ultra Sun because that's all I have among gen 7 games. Here are things to keep in mind while suggesting a Pokemon or two:
  • I prefer fully evolved Pokemon for this one (it's Episode RR, after all)
    • Trade-evolutions are fine this time because I can trade between my Moon and Ultra Sun savefiles
  • No legendaries and mythicals
  • No Sun and Ultra Moon exclusives (don't think there are practically any in Sun, though)
  • Must not pick those listed as Koh's squad choices
In case any of you don't get it, here's my no-no list among non-legendaries and non-mythicals:
  • Rowlet line :rowlet::dartrix::decidueye: (I started with :popplio: in Moon)
  • Dusk Lycanroc :lycanrocdusk: (can't even legally get that special :rockruff: to begin with)
  • Poipole line :poipole::naganadel: (the one at Ultra Megalopolis was already taken as my String Hexalocke encounter)
  • Ultra Moon exclusives:
    • Electrike line :electrike::manectric:
    • Baltoy line :baltoy::claydol:
    • Skrelp line :skrelp::dragalge:
    • Stakataka :stakataka:
    • Fossils (actually obtainable, but my Isle Aphun in US isn't fully upgraded yet) :
      • Kabuto line :kabuto::kabutops:
      • Lileep line :lileep::cradily:
      • Amaura line :amaura::aurorus:
    • Totem-sized Pokemon (the normal ones are still acceptable) :
      • Alolan Raticate :alolanraticate:
      • Araquanid :araquanid:
      • Salazzle :salazzle:
      • Togedemaru :togedemaru:
      • Kommo-o :kommoo:
The Squad:
  1. Skarmory :skarmory: (Koh's)
  2. Tsareena :tsareena: (Koh's)
  3. Sylveon :sylveon: (Koh's)
  4. Wailord :wailord: (Elio's)
  5. Houndoom :houndoom: (Elio's)
  6. Goodra :goodra: (Elio's)

@Moonwatcher - Since you still need more Pokemon, I'll give you Lapras :lapras:

@SAF - You can continue to use Tsareena :tsareena:

I'm posting the final part of my Alpha Sapphire Nuzlocke Scramble in a couple of hours, which means it is time to start recruiting a team for the 4th installment of the series!

I will be moving onto Sinnoh and playing through Pokemon Platinum! Just like always, I'm combining the Scramble with a slight variation of the Nuzlocke rules, meaning that if one of my Pokemon faints, I can no longer use it for the remainder of the game. This does up the difficulty quite a bit, so I will be accepting a couple of reserves to use as back ups.

Some additional rules:

Fully evolved Pokemon only.
Do not suggest any Pokemon that are not available within Pokemon Platinum. Trade evolutions are totally fine because I have two DS systems and multiple gen 4 games.
Remember that this is a more difficult version of a Scramble AND Pokemon Platinum isn't an easy game. I'm not asking you to give me only S tier Pokemon, but try to be mindful of what other people have already given so I don't end up with a team full of common weaknesses/lack of offensive presence/etc...
Slots:

I will be accepting 10 Pokemon in total, six for the main team (including my starter) and four reserves.

For the main team, I would like to have at least THREE Pokemon by the third gym and a FULL TEAM by the 5th gym. Reserves can be Pokemon found at any point of the game, even late game.

Main team:

  1. Empoleon
  2. Togekiss
  3. Drapion
  4. Medicham
  5. Rapidash
  6. Yanmega
6986

Reserves:

  1. Carnivine
  2. Weavile
  3. Rotom
  4. Garchomp
