    Back in Sapphire and again in Alpha, I actually did the Contests through to the end for all five categories. How many of you had the patience and drive to it too? I tried to do like that Lisa girl and have one competitor for all contests, but couldn't manage it. So here's who I ended up using (in Alpha, at least):

    [3D=blaziken] Coolness, Vega
    [3D=ampharos] Beauty, Scintilla
    [3D=banette] Cleverness, Doubt
    [3D=aggron] Toughness, Hatchet
    [3D=lopunny] Cuteness, Cookie

    Who helped you win your contests, and did you have one Pokémon participate in more than one category?

    I don't remember that much, to be honest.
    I know that I used Milotic for Beauty, and I think I used Camerupt for toughness.

    Also, as a personal opinion, I think they should've added a sixth category: Spooky/Scary/Creepy/Etc.
    Not only do I think it would work well, but It would also add a sixth Pokémon. :)

    I was really determined to get the special ribbon effect for my Diancie, so I maximized all of its traits in all five areas. However, for each contest I would use TMs to switch up two of its moves while keeping Diamond Storm and Calm Mind. Plus, mega evolving Diancie during the contests also helped boost up points.

    I had an entire team of Gardevoir named after the my little ponies, that had different moves (the egg moves from the pokenav helped a lot) I got each to be master in one category, except fluttershy, despite her stats maxed in every category

    I never thought of using a whole flock of a single species for contests, that's a pretty good alternative to what I was going to do.

    I figured Normal Types are flexible with TMs, and unlimited-use TMs are good for switching movesets around, so I was going to train an Exploud to be my all-purpose competitor. But now I'm thinking I could breed four more and name theme their nicknames after musicians who seem representative of the contest category. Hetfield for Toughness, Lashmush for Coolness, and I'm sure I could fill that out in a few more minutes if I tried.

    And I would be in favor of a sixth contest category as well, largely because six is already a large number in Pokémon. Six members in a party, six base stats, six Pokémon appearing on the field in the highest-population modes (triple and horde). Those first two would mesh nicely with the introduction of a formal sixth contest category. But sadly, since they didn't introduce it in ORAS, I doubt they'll do it ever.

    Yep.. Sewaddle. You saw it right. My boyfriend caught a random shiny Sewaddle, nicknamed it Potato, then gave it to me.. so I just knew that it becoming a contest star was meant to be. :'3

    Yeah, I had one for each tier of the contests. I had a real contest addiction, so it was like "I MUST have excellent contestants!" So here are my lovely entries:

    [3d='altaria'] Cuteness

    [3d='camerupt'] Toughness

    [3d='diancie'] Beauty

    [3d='gallade'] Coolness

    [3d='latios'] Smartness.

    The only one I really had trouble with was smartness, the rest completely recked the competition (dat mega evolution tho)

    I pretty much aced every single contest with my shiny Lugia, Tiamat. She kicked so much butt in all the contests, it was really fun! I took a couple pictures of her during contests that look really awesome, too.

    I didn't do TOO many contests in ORAS, but here's what I do have to say. Flappy wrecks Cool Contests. #TeamFlappy (a thing I made up one time when I was discussing flappy's awesomeness with someone)

    oh by the way flappy is a swellow
    [​IMG] Yay for team flappy!

    Mine is more or less like this:
    Beauty
    [3D='empoleon'] Empoleon the Empoleon
    This one has been with me since 2009, the oldest surviving Pokémon I have. He's beauty, he's grace, he will Ice-Punch you in the face.

    Coolness
    [3D='weavile'] Lucille the (supposedly shiny) Weavile
    I don't think we have shiny sprites for the 3D models so yeah

    Toughness
    [3D='swampert'] Bellatrix the Swampert
    She's my starter, and also a super contest extraordinaire

    I haven't made my decision about the others, though. Might update this post when I get to it.

    I decided to go along with Victini, which aces all 5 Master Rank Contests. Even though at times I rely on Abby the Poochyena (specifically for Tough Contest) and Altairis the Altaria.

    Well I haven't really been doing much contest but in my first playthrough on AS I did do some tough and coolness rounds, I think I reached hyper rank with both. I used the same Pokémon for both of those contests.

    [3D='mightyena'] Miles the MIghtyena

    One day I might try some more contesting and see if I could get a super contest star.

    Well I did try to make a contest team for ORAS. I started with Milotic for Beauty contests, but then I realized that Cosplay Pikachu could win all the contests on its own. So yeah, my contest team is composed of the different costumes Cosplay Pikachu can wear.

    I really didn't like contesr spectaculars at first, but after I found out I needed to win every single Master Rank to get Lucarionite, I began doing them, and found it enjoyable :3

    Cool: Talonflame. Bulk Up and Brave Bird, Glare Blitz is very OP.

    Smart: Gardevoir. It used to have all Smart moves so I used it.

    Tough: Non-Mega Lucario. This one had a lot of tough moves, and it was what I use for battling too. I was too lazy to get another Tough Pokémon haha

    Beauty: Azelf. Eyy, lookie. Nasty Plot plus two really strong Beauty Moves, AND Explosion at the end, that's actually really good. I get a drop from Nasty Plot, but that's alright.

    Cute: Uxie. I like Yawn and the other trolly cute move I had. I always make my opponents nervous hahaha
