I've seen this challenge before in the Metal and Color Generation Games (GB/GBC) forums. I forgot the full name so I changed the name to The Play & Pass Challenge!.

What is the Play & Pass Challenge?

In this challenge, ten people are given a part to complete. Once they're finished, they pass the file to the next person. I know it sounds confusing, so here's an example:

Bob: 1st Gym
Bill: 2nd Gym

Bob starts the game, then beats first gym leader. After that, Bob will pass the file to Bill. Bill will play until he beats the 2nd gym leader, and he'll pass the file to the next person.


But ROM's aren't allowed in PC!

We won't be posting the files on the site. We'll use MSN or something similar to that for the files. So just give us your e-mail and the person before you that's completed their part will send it to you.


Which game are we going to play?

For this challenge, we're going to play Pokemon Emerald.


How do I sign up?

All you have to do is post in this thread. In your post, write down which part you want to do.


When can we start?

The challenge has already begun!



Note: People whose names are in italic have already done their part.

Roxanne: Vuallum
Brawly: master95
Wattson: borax12
Flannery: Swampert101
Norman: ÄgàmêñÐmØÑ
Winona: aaronburnsyou
Liza and Tate: Blakus
Juan: .Swift
Elite 4: GreenStorm
Steven: Goodies.

Since people have been asking about the Battle Frontier, I decided to open it:

Battle Dome: cheekoo98
Battle Pike: StrickeN
Battle Factory:
Battle Arena: Goodies.
Battle Pyramid: .Swift
Battle Palace:
Battle Tower:

Note: I know some people won't understand what part to sign up for. If you signed up for Roxanne, then you'll be playing from the beginning until Roxanne. Then, you'll beat her. If you signed up for Norman, you'll play until you beat him.

-------------------------------------------------
Also, a few things to remember:

1. All participators, please subscribe to this thread so you'll be updated.

2. When you're playing, take some screenshots and post them here. Basically, post your progress with some pictures. I might make a blog with all the screenshots at the end, or something similar to that.

3. For this challenge, we will be using the emulator Visual Boy Advance. If you don't have it, PM me then I'll get it for you.

4. The ROM file has to be the US version of Pokemon Emerald.

5. If you're confused about how to give the file to the next person, just use an e-mail. If you don't know theirs, just PM them and they'll give you it. If they don't want to receive it by e-mail, just ask them what other way they'd like to receive it.

No problem. Also, like Goodies. said, all you need is Visual Boy Advance. If you don't know where to get it, just google it.

No.

Well, it seems like a good idea. Why not, I guess. Unless someone doesn't want to.

Added. And yes, you just have to give the .sav file. If anyone doesn't know where to get the game file, just e-mail me.

The game file will have to be the US version as well.

Added. Now we only need two more people (not including me) and we're good to go!

Also, I'll explain. See, when you have a ROM file, and save (if that game has a save feature), then a .sav file will be created. If you take away that save file and play the game, you won't be able to load you save. So if we all have the same game (Pokemon Emerald), we just need to give the .sav files to each other. That way, we'll be able to load the save that everyone's been playing. So basically, yeah, we'll just give each other the .sav files. Unless you don't have the right ROM, we'll give you that too.

I'm not exactly great at explaining, so feel free to ask again if you didn't understand.

Why not, I guess. But, if someone wants to take Norman and we're not on him yet, would you allow that person to take Norman?

I guess, but to be on the safe side, I'll wait until Goodies. replies.

Yeah. So when they come on, you give them the file, or if you need the file, ask them for it.

Good evening all, after finally getting a small bit of time to play the challenge I have done my small but needed part:

-Chose male trainer, named "Zacky"
-Chose Treecko, named "Treefolk"
-Caught Lotad, Seedot and Ralts on Route west of Oldale
-Caught Shroomish and Slakoth in Petalburg Woods
-Did some minor leveling up
-Defeated Roxanne (hilariously imo, Seedot OHKO'd Nosepass! Bide was useful!?)

Sending the file to mr.2

Nah, didn't occur to me while doing it :/ But that would've been a good idea in hindsight.

Wow you caught a lot of Pokemon!

Yeah kinda wanted to sort of set up something for the next guy, instead of just clearing it and getting a level 17 grovyle and nothing else.

You picked Treecko, that makes my job just that little bit easier.

Take your time, just be sure to post your progress so we can keep up.

About the Battle Frontier. It looks like a few people want to participate in it. So, I'll open up the BF parts to see if they'll get filled. If they don't get filled before Steven, we'll work things out.

If you do allow people to challenge the BF, can I change to one of them?

Cause I've never actually been able to battle them and I'd really like to give it a go.
