Project USUM PU Ladder Achievements

approved by Megazard and Akir

Have you ever been bored laddering? If so, then this is for you! The aim of this thread is to create goals for players to achieve in order to have more fun while laddering.

General Achievement Rules

  • All battles must be on the [Gen 7] PU ladder on Pokémon Showdown.
  • You must provide a replay or screenshot, accompanied by a pokepaste/pastebin where required.
  • You may get multiple achievements from the same battle.
  • You must win the battle to get the achievement.
  • You may count battles that end in forfeits if the opponent has 2 or fewer pokémon left. You may not count battles that end in forfeits for achievements that say "no forfeits".
  • Similarly, you may count time-outs if they have 3 or fewer pokémon left. Achievements with "no forfeits" do not allow you do submit replays with time-outs either.
  • If I can't figure out what I'm looking at, I'm just going to assume you got nothing; therefore, please don't make up new names for the achievements unless it's obvious what you mean and list the turns on which any requirements happened e.g. "(replay) Kamukaze (turns 3, 7, 16)."
  • You may not get any achievements if your opponent starts with 4 or fewer pokémon.
  • You must use an alt that contains the prefix 'PULA' e.g. 'PULA Taskr'. (You can make as many of these alts as you want as long as it has the correct prefix. If you post an achievement with an alt that does not have the correct prefix you risk your achievement not being valid.)
  • If you've got a good idea for an achievement feel free to pm me your idea and it might be added.
