Mastered! For the most part it was enjoyable and a good nostalgic trip. But the roaming legendaries are just, aaaaaaaa.

For defeating Gym Leader with set caps <= Lv.xx] Your pokemon must not exceed the level during the gym battle otherwise you will not get cheevo. You must beat the Gym Leader at or under specified level.

You can still spam items in battle :/

what Kryle said is not true, the logic checks for the first pokemon slot, so if you level a Pokemon past ten outside of slot 1, it counts. i did it last night. i also submitted a ticket regarding it.

To save confusion: The Set Mode, Level Cap challenges check the level of your currently active pokemon in battle, and will only PauseIf your Pokemon level exceeds the challenge Level Cap AND you used a move with that Pokemon.

What if you use one as a scapegoat? As in, if a legal Pokemon faints, so you switch to it, use Revive on it, then switch back?

My ticket for "I'll Become Even Stronger - Part 1 [m]" was erased for some reason. But for anyone attempting this, it doesn't seem to work yet.

It wasn't erased, it was fixed and marked as resolved.

Aw shit, now I'll have to make a new save if I decide to try this. Maybe I should start waiting two or three years after a game gets achievements to get the FULL set lol
17 Jun 2021
14:44
Well, to be fair now that I've gotten a good look at all the new ones, these actually look pretty fun and honestly not much of a pain. It could be some nice replayability, but screw catching the roaming dogs again lmao
20 Jun 2021
19:25
ToPoleaDK well, in theory you can get them and still play in hardcore, but i don't know if it is really allowed by RA and it will probably mess up with other acheivements like "Catch all obtainable Pokemon" because you aren't supposed to get those
21 Jun 2021
10:18
ToPoleaDK: Tecnically if you already got the "Catch all obtainable Pokemon" achievement on hardcore previous runs (for example, months ago and wanna replay it today) it will not be much of a problem. But only if you already had the achivement.
