Ah, right. Forgot 'bout that.
Quite true. None of the Challenges are particularly difficult, even a No Item isn't all-that hard when ya don't have a shit team. Non-Combined Challenges are essentially the beginners' level, with No Item essentially the graduation test for gettin' into the more serious Combined Challenges. One would consider the Combined Nuzlocke Challenges required t' become a Champion as the final test.
- Odor Sleuth
- Seed Bomb (Tutor)
- Hone Claws (TM, Victory Road)
This moveset is derived from the one I'd use myself in this Challenge: Return/Shadow Claw/Surf/Work Up. The moveset is changed for extra Challenge obviously. The specific reasoning behind each change is as follows.
Odor Sleuth is the gimmick as opposed t' Belly Drum, which also replaces Shadow Claw as a less efficient way t' deal with Ghosts. Removing an attack move also means you've less PP to throw 'round, so Ethers will almost assuredly be needed. Use that Dowsing Machine like no tomorrow.
Seed Bomb and Hone Claws replacin' Surf and Work Up is a change meant t' be viewed as a pair. Seed Bomb was added over Surf since the latter is better suited to handling Rock-types. Work Up's Sp.A increase is therefore useless, constituting a more useful move, albeit Hone Claws' accuracy increasing is rather redundant. However, Hone Claws does have a hidden blessing: ya don't get it 'til the end-game, leaving you one moveslot t' be creative with 'til then. Be it a coverage move or simply Work Up, use this moveslot wisely.
Good luck bro. I hope ya have fun with this moveset and, obviously, the Challenge itself. May the hax be merciful and your skill bring ya victory.
