Gimmick Pokemon can be good.
Smeargle has the same base stat total as Spinarak.
My thread's activity booms yet again when I leave for a day... Damnit.
Challenge accepted! Best of luck.
Though really, either good typing or good moves is the only almost-necessary qualification for single challenges to not be too hard. Since your Pokemon will almost always be overleveled once you get a badge or two, abusing said good typing would carry most Pokes through. You don't need behemoth Pokes like said Garchomp. I managed a single/unevolved challenge in Platinum with Scyther VERY easily, and it's typing is anything but good. It's base stat total is also a meager 500.
Oh, and welcome to Wiichat. =)
But yeah, if you're confused in regards to that, "shitty" isn't synonymous with "gimmicky". A gimmick Pokemon is a Pokemon used in competitive play for a trick it has up it's sleeve. Gimmicks have the objective of being a complete surprise to the opponent that they wouldn't expect, and therefore give that Pokemon the upperhand. Gimmick Pokes tend to not be as effective as another Poke that can perform a similar role without that surprise factor though, or the gimmick Poke simply has a better moveset to use that works without needing the surprise. If the latter is the case, even good Pokemon might end up using gimmicky movesets.
No, really, Chatot is pretty bad though. >_>;
I love gimmick Pokemon. They're so cool.
I should do a challenge only using extremely gimmicky Pokemon.
