Hey everybody, I've just recently joined here, but have been playing Reborn since a year ago. After seeing lots of people do Monotype or themed playtroughs, I thought of trying out a new kind of challenge to spice up the game - which I will name the Under 450 Run. If you're wondering "What does that name mean?": It's derived from the main rule this run is based on: I will only use pokemon with a Base Stat Total (BST) of 450 and below. If you're not familiar with those numbers, let me give you some examples to show you why that would be considered a challenge: Legendary Pokemon usually have a BST between 580 (trios like the birds or dogs) to 680 (Mewtu, Rayquaza, etc.), the strongest being Arceus with 720. Pseudo Legends like Metagross or Garchomp all have a BST of 600. Starters and Gen 4 new evolutions (Electivire, Mamoswine, etc.) are located somewhere around 520-540. Pidgeot is at 479, Solrock: 460, Sandslash: 450, Wigglytuff: 435, Mightyena: 420, Ratticate: 413 and Butterfree: 395. This little overview should let you picture what kind of pokemon i will be using. Now to the rules: The rules I set for this run are as follows: 1. Only Pokemon with an original BST of 450 or lower are allowed in battles. 2. The Battle Style will be on 'Set'. 3. Bag Items are not allowed during Trainer battles. 4. Trading is prohibited to prevent unfair early advantages. 5. Moves that directly boost stats won't be allowed, neither status moves like Swords Dance nor attacking moves with a passive boost like Flame Charge. Early game will basically be the same as normal runs since there aren't really any pokemon with a BST over 450 to use. Therefore the real challenge will only start from mid game onwards. I've been planning this run for quite some while now, and I'd really like some feedback from you guys and to hear your ideas on what pokemon to use.
