Successfully predicted Mega-Sableye but a bit disappointed with the design.

New Mega-Evolutions are expected in the new Gen 3 remakes coming in November and I personally want Mega-Breloom.

It is already a good Pokemon with a good moveset for competitive battling and useful abilities #poisonheal but it's design makes it look like the second evolution on a 3 Pokemon evolution line. I wouldn't mind seeing it get a stat boost in ATK and SPE/DEF and SP.DEF with a bulky design that makes it fit in with the BIG fighting types #Machamp #Hariyama #Emboar #Conkeldurr #Chesnaught #Pangoro.

Does this Nuzlocke Challenge variation (Gymlocke) have any problems?

This is a *Nuzlocke Challenge* that *I* have invented of which each rule is linked to gyms/gym leader's in the games (*Gymlocke*), that is made easier in some ways and harder in others. I want people to tell me if certain rules need altering, removing or adding. Please tell me how good/bad this Nuzlocke Challenge variation is by posting your views on my wall under the title 'GYMLOCKE'. Thank you.

**Gymlocke Challenge:**

 1. The *final* evolution of all Pokemon that participate in battles must have a *common* type (i.e. you must pick your gym's type).
 2. If a starter Pokemon is *not* part of your team then you have to trade it  - as soon as possible - for a Pokemon of the *same* level or *lower*.
 3. Only the *first* Pokemon found on a route can be caught.
 4. *One* Pokemon that has been caught can be traded after every gym victory.
 5. If you *blackout* then you hand over your gym badge and so lose.
 6. Being a gym leader you *cannot* avoid from battles and therefore may not flee, use repels, use escape ropes or dig.
 7. In battle you are allowed to use *one* HP restoring item and *one* status healing item per Pokemon (A full restore counts as both).
 8. When facing a gym leader, elite 4 member or the champion, all your Pokemon must be the *same* level or *lower* than their highest levelled Pokemon and you are not allowed more Pokemon than them.
 9. Gym battle rules dictate that you may *not* switch the Pokemon in play except via moves (e.g. baton pass or U-turn).
 10. You *cannot* use any type of revive.
 11. *All* Pokemon must be given a nickname.

Some things need to be explained:

-This Nuzlocke Challenge variation is not viable for early generations in which there were not enough Pokemon to have a well-rounded mono play-through team so this is more likely a possibility for the 4th generation games onwards.
- Rule 5. is an alteration of the rule 'If a Pokemon faints then it is dead/cannot be used/put in the graveyard box etc.' because it makes more sense with the gym leader theme - if you lose a battle then you lose your title - and because a game with Pokemon of a common type is challenging because of common team weaknesses and difficulty to beat certain gym leaders in-game.
- I understand that the need to trade Pokemon to get a good team defeats the point of rule 3. but this seems to be a necessary alteration to the rules of a normal Nuzlocke Challenge for this gymlocke to be good.
- Rule 10. is necessary because Pokemon that faint can still be used.

Anything that seems wrong about the rules that can be explained - thus there is no need to change, remove or add a rule - will be added to this list of 'Some things need to be explained:' as a wall post.

[Thanks Scizornician for the explanation as to why this couldn't be posted as a question.]

Your question was hidden because it would of given an opinionated answer which isn't allowed on the Pokebase. You can only ask questions on the Pokebase that will give you a known answer that factual. I suggest you post your Gymlocke idea on your profile here and ask people to rate it that way as the post fits in nowhere on the 3 sections of this site.

Finally a GRA-DRA dual-type Pokemon... even if it is a Mega Evolution #Mega-Sceptile. Interesting ability #Lighting Rod. Other dual types I'm wanting are ICE-STE and POI-FIR.
