Well, I suppose you could be the hero of the institute ! :-D
Also, if it's good with you, I'll make a Thread in the Pokemon Groups Forum and conduct some most discussion there. Something like the members of the manga group, right ?
syd runs it

What's the point of that? It would just kill the reason behind this thread imo.

Methinks I might be responsible for Sydian's new usertitle... uhhh CHALLENGE

But yeah, I'm almost done with a super awesome challenge that I've been working on for a very very long time, with the help and ideas of other Pokecommunity members. This challenge is going to be awesome.

Sydian
October 11th, 2010, 04:46 PM
Slightly, yes. lol I'm the hero because I save everyone's eyes from the horrible things that don't get approved.

Super special awesome challenge?

myrrhman
October 11th, 2010, 05:04 PM
Yeah super special awesome challenge. It's gonna be a looooooong one. I'm working on getting the kinks worked out so that everyone will understand the challenge; it has much potential.

Oh the suspense...
It is killing me.

I'll probably have to wait a while to start that challenge though, I'm still busy for a while with PUAP.

Is there some sort of random generator challenge yet?
Like someone uses a random generator for someone else and they have to use those Pokemon?

mondays suck
October 12th, 2010, 09:38 AM
There are actually quite a few challenges involving random generators, and the one you suggested is probably even the most popular of them.

PUAP is fun. However today, I was looking to see what I had next and I realized I missed Red (it was between Black and Ruby). So I'll just shove it in front of Sapphire, what I originally had next. lol Pretty sure I was doing a monotype on there.

Also, random challenges are <3

Woah long time no see guys :O

Sorry for those who tried to talk to me like weeks ago (Sydian and Mondays) and I never responded because my Computer dislikes me and will not let me respond.

@SydiansVM Yeah Erufuun,she's my favorite B/W Pokémon :3

So um hows everyone?

Anyways, welcome back chaos

On a completely unrelated note, I have decided that Seed bby and Cotton bby are best friends and love each other and are fabulous kthxbai. And Lady and Diva are just ~sexy~

Back to CHALLENGES I get to play Red most of the day tomorrow. I can finally catch up on my poison monotype, yay.

I have an idea for a CHALLENGE!
The 6Word CHALLENGE!
How this works:
Use a Random Word Generator to generate a word.
Choose a Pokemon based on that word.
Repeat till you have a full team of 6.
Legendaries are allowed.
This CHALLENGE ends when you defeat
The Champ in RBY
Red in GSCHGSS
The Champ in RSE
The Champ twice in FRLG
Stark Mountain in DPPt
The Champ (Adeku) in BW

What about resurrecting the Trio-species Challenge, It's a bit harder than the Duo Run, considering you have to keep the training between all three around the same level? Plus, when I did it, it was fun =D

Instead of that, why not resurrect the triple trigen monotype master challenge, or something similar? That was a blast if I ever had one...

Phew, I've been off. Due to school and stuff...
Well, I think more BW stuff will be implemented soon. Like, how Ace works on his Nuzlocke for BW and I've seen some people in the UMC getting busy with Isshu.
Me ? I just caught my own SydBB (SeedBby, try and figure that Syd :-D) and I walked around the Sky Arrow Bridge and Hiun trying not to fall off my chair or scream OMGWTF.
Oh, Off Topic again. Whatever...

Haha, that is too cute. :) <3 Thanks. That's pretty clever too.

I was GONNA play Red for PUAP today...but liek...um. I don't wanna. lol Or I might later. I just hate writing down all my team stuff and all. I literally have used up a bunch of notebook pages with this challenge, because I write down everything. -weird-

In other news!

Moderator of GPGD, and good at it too. You can become rude at times and yes, I can be annoying to you Syd, lol. But anyways, that doesn't give you a reason to deny everything, I don't like saying this but you act like an idiot at times. Your area yea, sure its big and hard to handle, you do it very well, and always are sarcastic. You are very good socially and forumly, but you have small errors here and there, you need to know when to stop.

HUR HUR!

I'm so out of the loop.I have to wait till Early December to get Black because I live in Brasil and everything costs more D:< (then I have to wait 1+ week for Shipping :/)

Yeah I could just wait for the English release but i'm inpatient and I can brag being the only American in Brasil (or my city that is) with a Original Japanese game.

Any new Challenges I should be informed of,since PAUP will be postponed cause PC hates me and I can rarley go on?

He called you a idiot. o_O isthiswhyhesbandyoubandhimlol
Well, I have a friend in the school doing a BW Nuzlocke. He has an R4. I sooooo hate him.
And yeah chaos, I had bragging rights of being the first kid in school with a legit EU HeartGold (looks at R4 friend, hates him even more).
And it's italic because of the Quote copy. :-(

Guys Guys Challenge Challenge :

THE JUNK RAISING CHALLENGE

Basically, this challenge requires no game restart, so it's cool with me, since I tend to turn all my games into hubs of trading and friendly battling (that's in school). You just tell us what Pokemon you got lying in your boxes, and we pick 6 for you to raise by grinding/trainer rematching/stuff. Every game ends when you beat the Elite twice.

Decided to make this when I saw the "Those that got away challenge". Since you had to restart, so I decided to make a similar thing without restarting.
Should we make a separate thread or just incorporate this in the current one ?

Hey syd, are you going to evolve that fighting type of yours, or do you not have some1 to trade with?

Also what about a challenge were you're pokemon aren't allowed STAB moves?

October 17th, 2010, 06:09 AM
The only reason I did that challenge so fast was that I had already wanted to do that before Red made the topic. So I was already like 10 Pokemon away. I'm actually doing it again in my free time on every generation (emulator). This one is just for me though, and I know I'm not cheating.

How about a Pokemon can only learn its 4 most recent moves it has learnt. For example, Chimchar's first 4 moves are Scratch, Leer, Ember and Taunt... When it comes to learn Mach Punch (its 5th move as Monferno) it must delete Scratch and learn Mach Punch and when it learns Fury Swipes it must delete Leer. (TMs and Hms aren't allowed, only for HM slaves)

Another idea I had was to have 5 or 6 reoccuring names with all of your pokemon and they can only be replaced in the party by another with the same name. (This works well with nuzlocke).

Say I named my starter A, my pidgey B, rattata C, ekans D, geodude E, togepi F and bellsprout B... if my pidgey faints i must switch it with bellsprout and if any other pokemon faints there must be a gap in the team. (6th in the team can be resevred for HM slave). (This idea is probably an add on rule to some challeneges but I enjoyed using this rule)

Thoughts??? (apologies if these ideas have already been mentioned I only read a few pages of the thread)

I've thought of that myself, actually. I would never do it, though. I'd get too annoyed.

I was gonna re-enter the monotype challenge since playing Red for PUAP yesterday reminded me of what I was doing. But idk if I even have enough interest to keep playing it through til the end. I get so lazy with challenges.

560cool.
October 20th, 2010, 11:14 PM
Um, Syd... you've double posted. (:
Yes, well, I've talked to sammu. Seems like I'll finally be able to clock some more hours into HeartGold. With a Pokedex count of 399 (the biggest in our school (: and a lot of trash in the boxes, it's sure gonna come in handy.
Plus, I'll be able to put an effort of 300 hours into the game (currently 278 and counting). So yeah...

Um, kay, so I've made a thread for the Box Clearance challenge. Hope to get some challenges up ! ^_^

Sydian
October 22nd, 2010, 03:42 PM
^ Haha, I love your sig. :) And yeah, PC was crapping on me that day. I tried to delete it after I saw it posted twice, but it was being slow and pages wouldn't load and I was like "fine i'll do it later" and forgot.

Also, I think that this is the only time I've ever been doing so many challenges. I'm doing a triospecies on Ruby, PUAP, monotype on Red (which I need to sign back up for, I guess), and a favorite challenge on SoulSilver (which I need to get back to, lol). And technically a random challenge on Pearl, because when I played it for PUAP, I was like "oh, this is from when I posted a blog and asked people to think of a team for me lol"

560cool.
October 23rd, 2010, 12:11 AM
Oh, Syd, would you mind accepting the Box Clearance Challenge ?
And yes, Amore made it. :] I think you all love his styles, they all rock.
And I've made progress on my Pt. Favorite. I'm in Veilstone already (lol), thinking I never updated for... a long time ! xD
I might do an update today, if I can find my Platinum.
Oh, and I am doing a run with Mew and some other Pokemon named after you guys. That Mew was impossible to nickname, so I just got Mondays the Totodile.
So, um, which Pokemon do you want to be ?
Btw, I'm playing SoulSilver.

Sydian
October 24th, 2010, 01:54 PM
^ I wanna be Smeargle or Umbreon. :) Male or female, it matters not lol. And I don't see your challenge. But if it meets the right requirements, then it'll likely be approved.

Hello, distraction. Thy name is Pokemon White. I need to get back to PUAP but I have not been in the mood for Sapphire!

560cool.
October 26th, 2010, 08:02 AM
Nice team revamp Syd ! ^_^ And yes, my PUAP is on hold due to school. Tomorrow = geometry test. I SUCK at geometry.

October 26th, 2010, 09:28 AM
Thank you. I needed a new team. The old ones weren't gonna cut it in eastern Isshu. And Sazandora is a destructive beast.

In the final battle of the main game against Geechisu, he uses one that's on level 54, ten levels under it's actual evolution level, making it even more broken that it already is at that point in the game. It's difficult as hell, I'm tellin' you.

So it's been a while since I've worked on any CHALLENGES. I would also like to point out that some guy came up to the top floor of the library and is just sleeping. Like...idek.

560cool.
October 26th, 2010, 09:42 AM
Ah, lucky him. Our library is too small for me to be able to sleep.
Yeah, I'll just be logging my FR Omega Nuzlocke on the challenge forum Ace made. Just 'cause I can make my own thread and I hope getting nicknames first.
And I'm doing the Box Clearance challenge ! =D Also, expect more Pokemon signatures with this sort of art ; I got the site where Amore got this beast from. ;-)

Amore
October 27th, 2010, 01:33 PM
I have an idea for a challenge!

My threads generally aren't successful....except my one in Hg/Ss about the Mew event, so somebody else'd post it...

But, basically, you have to give yourself a backstory! i.e. you already have your own pokemon (trade over an egg asap and hatch it before advancing), or you have a fear (no bug pokemon allowed??), or a deep hatred of a pokemon which means you have to battle and defeat every one you ever meet, or your starter pokemon has a rivalry with another of its' type (i.e. Empoleon and Barry's Floatzel), or something like that.

560cool.
October 28th, 2010, 11:00 AM
That might be good for comics and stuff. That's why Nuzlocke has all sorts of stuff around Ruby.
But that might be cool, and some people might even start writing whole stories and making their own comic. (:
But I suck at drawing, so stories for me...

Sydian
November 3rd, 2010, 03:01 PM

pardon me if this has already been mentioned, but reading through 22 pages of posts just to avoid a duplicate post could take hours.

how bout the "Unknown Challenge"

You can only use Unknown to get through the game. The only exception is when you need to have a different pokemon to use an hm move to progress in the story(cut,surf,waterfall,strength) but you can't use the hm slave in battle.

Alternatively, for a bit more difficulty, you can only use Pokemon with BST of 500+, but you can only use moves with a power of 50 or less (and no Technician)?

Last but not least, for the most difficult variant, how about you can use any Pokemon (including those with less than 500 BST) but only moves with 50 power or less?

It could be called the "Arms Tied Behind Your Back" Challenge or something like that... Also, for added extra difficulty, you could tie in the rule that you can't use any STAB moves onto any of those variants.

Sydian
November 4th, 2010, 04:56 PM
The ones about BST haven't been done, to my knowledge. The Unown Challenge has been done by mondays suck, however there hasn't been an actual thread for it.

November 4th, 2010, 05:00 PM
Wouldn't that Unown challenge just be a really masochistic Solo Challenge?

Mistyblu
November 4th, 2010, 05:02 PM
Here's an idea: how about a challenge where you can only use pokemon that haven't been used by Gym Leaders (including Rematches) in all the main games (from Gen 1-4)? (For example even if Surge doesn't have an Electabuzz in R/B/Y/FR/LG you can't use it because he has one in the Johto games. Plus Wattson uses one in his Emerald rematch)

Pretty much the opposite of a Gym Leader Pokemon challenge and forces you to use Pokemon that don't have much, I suppose 'screentime' because it hasn't been used by a Gym Leader

Obviously it would be easier to form a team in later game with more pokemon but it can still be done in the Kanto games.

I could make a list when I have more time to show how viable it can be

Geechisu is so annoying.Just think this,My first time playing White, and its a Nuzlocke run. His sazandora almost took my entire team down. I had a team of Enbuoh,Erufuun,Jihead,Shandera,Abagora,and Baibanira. I beat him with Enbuoh,Erufuun, and Jihead. The rest died. Blaack and White is the hardest game to nuzlocke.It's easy up until Artie but then your guy dies every 3 battles.
^Black and White Spoiler above^

Sydian
November 6th, 2010, 08:06 AM
I could never do a Nuzlocke on any Pokemon game. The only one I'd have any luck with it in is RSE, since I know those games like the back of my hand. But I don't like losing good team members. >_> It makes me too sad, cause I mean, I give the best nicknames. -hair flip-

Lati-Fan95
November 7th, 2010, 08:25 AM
This is an idea of a challenge I've thought of since quite a while so I guess that's the best place to write it down, isn't it?^^

The celebrity challenge!

-You can choose every kind of celebrity you want (manga/comic/anime/etc. heroes (some Pokemon like wigglytuff are allowed as celebrities because Wigglytuff, for example, has its own guild so your team would be in that case, the guild) and think what kind of Pokemon they'd use!^^ Real Life celebrities are also allowed, of course!^^
-Every celebrity that has a team will be in the start post with his/her/its team!^^


That's the basic idea behind it!^^ How does it sound to you?

I don't know if anyone else is interested in doing this sort of Challenge, but if you are then please feel free to start the thread yourself. I only suggested the idea because I thought it'd be a good Challenge, I don't actually want to do it myself, so I don't think I'd be allowed to run the thread...

Why is there only a gym leader challenge for G/S/C and for no other generations? Because the idea is pretty cool but theres no thread for other generations.

Sydian
November 9th, 2010, 07:04 AM
Because no one made one for other generations. Simple as that. There doesn't need to be an official challenge thread for the gym leader challenge since it's not as popular/common as monotypes and such. But that doesn't mean that one should be made for every generation.

OK for you to say... The Nov 1st Dashboard update bricked my 360, and I'm trying to get Microsoft to fix it for free while the whole time they deny there's an issue. Despite the fact that my Xbox worked without a hitch for 3 years before the update, and then on the day of the update... BAM. Dead.

I miss playing my Xbox too...

Nope. Stupid call centre woman made me mess around with it so much I got all 4 red rings of death flashing alternately before it literally switched itself on.....

I was thinking of creating a challenge where there is a limited amount of pokemon what you can have at any time throughout the game. Like, say the limit is three, you would only be allowed to have a total of three pokemon in your party and box combined. It would make for interesting strategy about which pokemon to use and how to find decent pokemon to fulfill your HM needs. What do you think?

I just thought up an idea for a challenge earlier, and I was hoping to get some feedback on it from you guys. I call the challenge the 'Clean Slate Challenge', where after every gym battle the Pokemon in the current party have to be dropped in a box and new Pokemon brought in to replace them.

What do you think of the general concept?

I have this idea which I cant participate on until late December or something, anyways. Its all about planning on a set of 6 Pokemon before you start you journey and then plug them in once you start. Rules are somewhat simple. Sometimes, limitations give benefits. ( will come down )

1- All Pokemon are allowed except starters. ( see limitations )
2- Your set can contain maximum ONE legendary, even tho I dont ecourage it. ( all of them are allowed except Arceus ).
3- Event Pokemon are allowed ( and this includes legenedaries as well ).
4- Breeding for IVs, natures, abilities and egg moves are allowed. ( you'll be smart if you do this ).
5- Hacked Pokemon are Not allowed.
6- Emulators, hmmm, I dont really encourage that, I really hate it, but wont say no.
7- You can only play this on P/D/Pt/HG/SS.
8- The use of the same Pokemon is not against the rules, but its just " not fun ".
9- HM Slaves are totally fine.
10- All Pokemon must start as unevolved Pokemon and then evolve them at will. ( except*)

Limitations being :-
1- Legendaries can only be used when your team is as this legendary's level. Say you choose Lati@s which is level 30, you will only be allowed to use your other 5 until they reach 30 and then add it.
2- Starters can only be obtained by limiting yourself to choose your set of Pokemon from a certain region, and that gives you the ability to use ONE started of that region. Say you would like to get Charmander, then you need to make the other 5 of your set to be Kanto Pokemon.
3- Pokemon whom evolved independent on levels can be added directly to your set ( like you can add Steelix instead of Onix because level 1 or 100 Onix can evolve into stealix if traded with Metal coat, like-wise, Scyther. )

You will be considered a winner if you beat the league ( DPPt ) or Red ( HG/SS )
I hope this is clear, I did this before and its quite fun. see you!

mondays suck
November 21st, 2010, 03:37 AM
...that is - when disregarding the limitations - pretty much how I start about any run, except that I don't really care that much for IVs/EVs/natures perfectionism (except if I get a nature that REALLY sucks) and prefer letting my team spawn at level 2 or 3 on the first route instead of doing time-consuming egg stuff.

DarkCurse101
November 21st, 2010, 07:36 AM
Well, this is my idea of a challenge. I mean working on your set ( this means everything, eggmoves natures .. etc ) before you start and then beat the game with that team gives a satisfying feeling. The truth is, I dont mind using Pokesav to save time, but nothing guarantees if the user will not just 31 all IVs and 255 everything, this way is quite annoying and gives you an unbelievable advantage, which its not fun, this why I try that ppl dont use Pokesav, but yeah using the Pokemon modified cheat to get them respawn on the first route is comepletely fine with me :D

Alternative
November 22nd, 2010, 05:38 AM
I have a couple of ideas for challenges that I thought I might post here, since I don't want to partake in one as I don't want to start my games again.

Random Egg Challenge: Participants will be given 1-5 eggs from other users and have to complete the game using those Pokemon. They will be allowed to use other Pokemon as well, but their Egg Pokemon should be the main Pokemon in the team. The people giving the Eggs will get to choose their Pokemon and would have to give them so they have almost hatched. The participants will not get to choose their Pokemon (to increase the challenge).
Obviously you wouldn't give crap Pokemon like Magikarp or Smeargle, but you could give someone like a Rotom or Slugma or Seedot to start with and they wouldn't know.

Everstone Challenge: Basically, you treat every Pokemon as if it were holding an everstone. Just don't evolve it at all. Eg: If you were to catch a Spearow, it wouldn't be allowed to evolve, whereas it would not be against the rules if one had something like a Tentacruel, so long as they caught it as one.

Im a very planning sort of person.
Actually, I think everybody does that.
Nobody goes in a run and doesn't know what their pokemon is capable of.

Go away and never come back. :( -swats you-

But anyway, I like the egg challenge. But maybe trade more eggs at certain points in the game? idek. :( I wouldn't be able to do it because of lack of wifi, however I do have eggs on random games and I don't know what is supposed to hatch out of them. :| Hur hur. The other one sounds like an NFE challenge, but with the perk of being able to catch an evolved Pokemon.

dragon0fangz
November 22nd, 2010, 08:44 AM
I like the egg challenge too! It seems really cool, It's sorta like the random pokemon challenge, but others decide what you get, and you dont know until the eggs hatch. also, there is technically no crap pokemon, as magikarp evolves in Gyarados, and Weedle into Beedrill.

Should I start it?

It would be difficult to get more playing, and this kind of challenge requires more people, as you will need to trade with all of them. As tempting as it would be, it seems demanding to run. All I can do is beg someone else to start it.

I've had this idea for a challenge for a little while, but I'm not sure how to word it, and also doubt I'm active enough to really run it. So anyone else is free to take the idea.

It's basically, a Mono-species run. Don't mistake it for a Solo-run, or a mono-type. Basically, the idea is to use pokemon of one type of animal. It doesn't have to be PERFECT, but very close in resemblance, atleast. Also, I figured only 1 legendary per team is permitted, but not recommended.


Example: If you were to choose Dogs, you would have a team of, let's say, Houndoom, Arcanine, Manectric, Mightyena (I know, Hyena, not a dog...close enough) Granbul, and maybe one of the legendary beasts or something.

Birds? Swellow, Pidgeot, Fearow, Starraptor, Noctowl, and let's say Zapdos.

Dragons? Charizard, Gyarados, Dragonite, Salamence, Garchomp, and Rayquaza.

Mice/Rodents? Sandslash, Raticate, Raichu, Pachirisu, Furret

As you can see, there's certainly a lot of common families to choose from, and I would love to do a challenge like this, just don't have the time to run the thread myself.

Thoughts? Comments? Concerns? Rage?

I think I may have an idea for a Colosseum/XD challenge. How about you can only catch all the Shadow Pokemon with a Pokeball? You can still catch a pokemon with a Great Ball or Ultra Ball, but if you do, you must use that pokemon on your team. (meaning you can only use a ball other than a regular Pokeball 6 times, for each 6 pokemon on your team) Every other pokemon besides those 6 must be caught with a Pokeball. You can't skip a pokemon either; you must catch all of the Shadow Pokemon in the game.

Hopefully that was semi-understandable.

I understand it, but it doesn't seem too unique, tbh. It seems like the catch them all challenge but with restrictions, and shadow pokemon aren't that much harder to snag.
I mean the games ARE based around catching shadow's but its quite possible to catch pokemon easily with a pokeball, depending on certain factors and of course, chance.
It may be difficult but challenges should be worth the challenger's time as well.

As a big Colosseum fan, I can honestly say I've done that on my own without a challenge even being on my mind. As a challenge, it sounds horrendously boring and I doubt many people would join. For a Colosseum/XD challenge, I would rather see a no Purification challenge (unless for story progression, but then you couldn't use that Particular Pokemon anymore). That would be a challenge. I might consider posting that, but hell, I can't even keep up with the Favorite Challenge. I had to drop out of that recently.

I have an idea for a nice challenge.

Basically, you choose from one to six items.
Then you take the starting letter of every item, and you choose one Pokèmon per letter.

Say, if I choose:

Full Restore, Max Revive, Sacred Ash, Master Ball, Zap Plate.

Then I could make a team composed of:

Flareon, Metagross, Squirtle, Marshtomp, Zapdos.

They can be also non-fully evolved Pokèmon, and only one Legendary.

What do you think?

Congrats on not double posting!


Anyhow, it was mostly to add a degree of difficulty and uniqueness to P-Z's challenge, and the items would be chosen by the challenger, so it is ultimately their judgement that decides how they do and even if Full Restores aren't until later in the game, they are quite useful.

I understand where you two are coming from. I guess it would seem kind of bland as a challenge, looking back at it...the only real challenging ones would be Tyranitar and Lugia. :pink_laugh:

I think I thought of another one, however. A No Shadow Pokemon Challenge, meaning that you can only use regular pokemon. This may be a bit harder in Colosseum, considering that you basically only get Umbreon, Espeon, and a Plusle at one point. In XD, you get your Eeveelution, but there are Pokespots (I'm pretty sure that's what they are called) where you can catch regular pokemon.
Once again, not too sure about how appealing this sounds.

I understand where you two are coming from. I guess it would seem kind of bland as a challenge, looking back at it...the only real challenging ones would be Tyranitar and Lugia. :pink_laugh:

In colosseum that may be a bit of a challenge but in XD you are able to get Aggron, Shuckle, Medicham and Tyranitar as well as an eeveelution and Flygon using this method iirc.

Ok, but I'll do after Sydian totally agrees with it.

So, the Pokè-item Challenge (Now I don't have anything in mind for the title :D).

You choose from one to six items, by yourself or randomly by me, and then you take a Pokèmon with every starting letter of the items, one Pokèmon for one item.
Then, the item you choose, you can use only them in your run, on all the team.

Pokèmon available: all, only one Legendary in your team, if you're use it.
Items available: all, just make sure you'll find it in your game.

That would be really hard in Colosseum, considering the only Pokemon you get that aren't Shadow right off the bat are Umbreon, Espeon, and lol Plusle. It'd make more sense for an XD challenge though. So maybe exclude Colosseum for that, because everyone is going to end up with the same team in Colosseum.

The challenge which mentioned using items only by first letters of Pokemon sounds pretty awesome. I'll go with Reshiram for Revives ! I might get around doing it while I'm not doing.... Maths.

And, another sidenote, Kingdom Hearts : Birth By Sleep. Totally OT, I know, but it's also taking a lot of time.

I contacted Sydian about it. Sydian and I both agreed it was way too...jumbled. I have created another and it is pending now. Once started, new rules will be enforced, regardless if the Pokemon given are a favorite or not. Meaning no changes in any teams made.

EDIT: The new thread is now up. I will be enforcing rules, though! D<

^ Unless for some reason you're unable to obtain something. Like how one time I thought I had something on my storage Diamond that I could breed to get an egg to trade to whatever I was using for my challenge and yeah. My last random challenge made it really far, and I forgot about it and restarted. Bad me. I had a Shroomish that I raised to level 42 (I think) for Spore and then evolved it and was gonna EV it and yeah. I'm still kicking myself for that. D:

Also, I would like to point out that I have never had to lock so many threads in this forum. Two challenges locked in one day is a lot for this section. :| But wutevs. The...something challenge got locked. Anime challenge I think. So for anyone that wants to remake it, they can go on ahead.

I'm also going to start keeping more of an eye on these things so we don't have another random challenge fiasco. Seriously, if we can't honor the rules of the challenger, we shouldn't be doing the challenge. Plain and simple.

Idea.

Tell me if this is fine or not.

A Fail Cup Challenge.

You use pokemon that are fail. cant learn TMs/HMs and are not Wobbuffet or Smeargle.

eligible:
-Caterpie
-Metapod
-Weedle
-Kakuna
-Magikarp
-Ditto
-Unown
-Wurmple
-Silcoon / Cascoon (same exact Pokemon)
-Wynaut
-Beldum
-Kricketot
-Burmy
-Combee
-Shibishirasu
List and fail cup from smogon.

This is good for those that want a true challenge.

I think if I wait til Christmas break (right when it starts) and choose either Diamond or Pearl, I can persevere through it. Gosh, I don't know what it is about Sinnoh. :/ I just hate it. I get up to the 3rd badge and I'm like "okay screw it" and quit playing. XD

I'm with ya there. I'm behind on PUAP because I just haven't been in the mood for certain games. I barely played Blue when it came up the other day. I think my next game is Platinum, which I'm fine with. Oddly enough, I love Platinum, however I won't restart my legit copy. Didn't have the Secret Key on it though, so that's not cool. I do, however, have it on my Platinum ROM. Happy Syd. :D

Aaah, so many games I have never played you're mentioning there. I have NFS Porsche in my shelf, but never got around to play it much, I didn't get Shiny Gold to work when I tried quite a while ago (now it would take me about 2 minutes, but back then I had no idea what to do and eventually gave up and forgot about it). And the rest I haven't even heard about, I feel bad now D:
And my only excuse it that I'm too lazy to make a trip the closest city (~30km away) on some weekend and look for some new games there.

And to post something that's actually NOT off-topic... I wonder how many threads for the challenges I'm playing in PUAP will be dead when I finish. About half (well, a bit less maybe) of them has already died, and considering how incredibly fast I am progressing...

Well maybe people don't like having to beat the game using Magikarp, Male Combee, Rattata, Pidgey, Hoppip and Chingling, I mean it's not very fun if your fellow challengers give you crap and expect you to beat the league with it.

Yeah, I just noticed 50% of the people there do this, and it's obviously something bad.
We {Syd actually, we lack mod powahz} should enforce this rules and do stuff like excluding NFE Pokemon unless the poster says he wants NFE. Also, no things like Hoppip, Magikarp, Ratatta and the like (what you said, Karpman).

That's the same problem we had with the Random Pokemon Challenge! D:
We needs some stricter rules about that, at least. I don't mind the Hoppip or Rattata parts, nor the Pidgey (mine proved more useful than some of my fully evolved Pokemon, actually), but when people start getting stupid with the Pokemon they assign someone, and how many page stretching posts it takes just to replace them, it's ridiculous.

In scramble it's just a bunch of restrictions,that challenge only exists for your fellow challengers to piss you of with Male Combees,Unknowns,Magikarp, and "Jigglypuff cannot evolve only use Non-Normal Type moves and no TM/HM"

Random Challenge is BS.I mean the one who is randomizing it could just reset the thing as much as he/she likes to get for the user to get pissed of. I mean I join that challenge twice and I never finished it. You know why?

1st Run: Nobody with Surf Game Over.

2nd Run: Nobody with Cut or Rock Smash.

Both was on Diamond which is nessesary to have those. And I for one feel like its breaking the rules to HM Slave.

The rules would have to be bent by the challenge host for situations in the random challenge like that, Chaos. Mal'akh had a problem with that himself, getting assigned Pokemon that came after Norman, which obviously doesn't work too well.

With the scramble challenge, I've attempted it once and I didn't get such a bad turnout, but other people did. The restrictions can be annoying, and to be honest guys, I'm one person; I can't hover over every thread to see who's following the rules and what not. So if you see someone in these particular challenges that you think is being unfair, please do not hesitate to report it, but make sure you have a valid reason. I will confront said person about it if I find it an irrational assignment. But do keep in mind, it's still a challenge. There has to be some element of challenge in there. Though that Jigglypuff example would be taken into consideration because to my knowledge, Jigglypuff can only learn non-damaging moves that are not of the normal type.

I HAVE BEEN PLAYING PLATINUM ALL DAY FOR PUAP AND I AM HAPPY. :D lololol I finally have time to catch up on challenges and restart my favorite challenge. I even finished my triospecies run! I might be posting a challenge for Pokemon Colosseum/XD soon, so watch out for that. Might be a week or so before I do though, since I still have three more finals this week. But we shall see.

I think there should be a random color run. You list the number of pokemon you want and the person below you list that many colors. Then he/she picks a number. The first person looks down the list and his/her first pokemon color is the first posts 1st color. The sencond posts sencond colr is their next pokemon and ect. They may only use pokemon that fit their colors.

You say 6 colors then someone says a number. The number selected is the number in the regions pokedex order pokemon.

I choose Green as one of my colors and im playing Leaf Green. And Seco. (isnt he like in every one of my explanations? xD) chooses 4.

It's for R/S/E/D/P/Pt

There was one, but I think it died, and it included the Pokethlon too. That would be cool, actually. And you could probably include BW because they have musicals, which are similar to contests. But that's up to whoever wants to make the thread. But yeah, that one died off long ago, so it's safe to say another one could be made.

Also, would we have to start a new game? People seem to like challenges that don't involve restarting games, like the PUAP challenge.

I was thinking of a challenge similar to the Beginning Letter Challenge. You take the first six (or any number below, depending on the amount of letters you have and/or how many pokemon you want to use) letters of your username, and use pokemon according to the beginning letter. Not a very good explanation, but here's an example.

My first six letters are I, N, F, E, R, and N again. That means I would use pokemon beginning with those letters, like Illumise, Noctowl, Flareon, Espeon, and so forth.

EVEN BETTER. If you have a number, you have to use that Pokemon. But that limits it to just 1-9, the Kanto starters. Unless it's like...here's an example.

Jarlorda
Oshawott
Smeargle
Heracross
2 Pikachu
5

Because the last numbers in the name are 25, you could use Pikachu, instead of Ivysaur for 2 and Charmeleon for 5. idk. olol You just have to consider the ones with numbers in the names. So what about symbols and underscores? Or you could use a Pokemon that starts with the letter of that number. That seems like a good one, too.

Enigma
December 13th, 2010, 09:11 PM
These ideas are all pretty cool! Maybe for symbols, you use an Unown? I'm not sure. Maybe underscore = Unown U, period = Unown P, etc?

Sydian
December 13th, 2010, 09:26 PM
For symbols, I was thinking you could use a Pokemon of that shape, if there is a Pokemon of that shape. If someone has a star, use Starmie, heart is Luvdisc, ! is Unown ! (same with ? Unown), music note is...Chatot? :D Oh, and another thing, what about Japanese usernames? :( That's another thing that's a problem.

chaos11011
December 14th, 2010, 04:39 AM
Not a problem. If it's Katakana it's the same basic thing. If someone has a username called ウラタビカプ (Uratabikapu) they have to use this sceme.

ウ= ウインディ Uindie/Arcanine
ラ= ラティオス Rateiosu/Latios
タ= タマンタ Tamanta/Mantyke
ビ= ビクティニ Bikutini/Victini
カ= カメール Kameiru/Wartortle
プ=プリン Purin/Jigglypuff

That means you MUST use Japanese names.

Hirigana you can do the same thing.

た = タ (Replace the Hirigana letter with the Katakana)

And for Kanji say you have


鶏 = Fighting Chicken (Torchic Line?)
恨 = Grudge (Any Poke who learns it)
丸 = Round (Round Pokemon)

And so one

Alternative
December 14th, 2010, 05:01 AM
I love the idea of the Username Challenge. If I did do it, I would be using it for R/S/E. Let's see if I can come up with something.
A = Azumarill
L = Ludicolo
T = Tentacruel
E = Exploud
R = Relicanth
N = Ninetales

H = Hitmonlee (Brute Force = Bruce Lee)
A = Aerodactyl (Oh hai, I'm a Flying Pokemon, has acess to Rock Slide and I'm fast :3)

Well, I haven't really been doing Challenges much. And I haven't been updating my sig much. But yes, as of now I am using that. I think I'm just going to edit it down to Monotypes. Maybe when I finish all of those I might do just Colors, and then after that I might do everything else.

Anyways, I was skimming through this thread and saw someone's idea to make up your own class of trainer, as well as their training style and pretend like you're them. I LIKE THIS. Someone should do that.

jdthebud
December 15th, 2010, 01:45 PM
Hmm. Both the Trainer's Class and Username challenges are both very doable - you would need a bit more interpretation for the trainers class though. I really like the Username one. It would really spawn some unusual AND different teams, as well as open up the possibility of an Ultimate run. It also adds a touch of personality, and almost nobody would be using the same team, which can happen on ones like the monotype runs and anime challenges.

I will definitely participate in the username one.

Firstly, let's all give a warm welcome to our warden, Myrrhman. I'm sure we've all really missed the guy.

Even if we do already have one of these, not only is 485 a lot on it's own, someone could simply tank through the game using 3 legendary pokemon, or at least powerful ones, disregarding the other two, or using them as HM slaves. As the former argument is equivalent to my initial playthrough of most games, I don't consider this a challenge. At all.

Enigma
December 16th, 2010, 04:14 PM

The only one I found was a BS Cap challenge. (You can only use pokemon that have base stats totals that all add up to whatever. Plus, it was really inactive) Mine is just use Pokemon with totals below a certain number. (Like say the limit is 200; you can use as many Pokemon as you want with totals equaling or below 200.)

Speaking of which, about 250 or 200 sounds about right to actually make it a challenge, or at least I think so. 200 might be a little too hard.

myrrhman
December 16th, 2010, 07:01 PM
What Karpman said. Too easy to just run through with a Nidoking and Starmie or something.

Also, the only challenge ever attempted similar to that was the limit challenge where you could only use weak pokemon.

What do you think of a Trainer challenge?

Basically, you pick any trainer from any game (excluding Gym leaders, Elite Four, Rivals) and play through the game using that trainer's exact team and movesets. For those that are rematchable, their final teams are the team you must use.

Sounds like it would be a very interesting challenge.

I think we had one before, but it must have died. D:
Also, exact movesets is something I would hate. Remember The Red Challenge somebody did ? It failed because of that. well, it died anyways, buuut....
So yeah, I'm pretty sure that if I were to do it, I would pick only one move, not all. It would make the challenge more interesting. (:

Just a random idea. Maybe the Box challenge or something. In the challenge, a person takes a game in which they have completed ( basically beat E4 two times or beat Red in some cases) and posts how many boxes full of pokemon they have. The next poster posts a random box number which the poster above had, and then the poster chooses 6 random pokemon from that box,( maybe by a diagnal order,first from each row, etc.) and those 6 pokemon ( or 4 or5 if they want an HM Slave) are used in his/her journey. Also, they start a different game, pokemon may be traded if not found in that game. Maybe something along those lines.

^We already have similar thing, just that you don't pick a random box, you pick six Pokemon from all of the poster's boxes. It's called the Box Clearance Challenge and it's on the 1st page. You should check it out. (:

Yet another idea!
I love spamming this thread with challenge ideas.
But this one is actually good.
Its a variation on the Monotype Challenge!
Its called the duo-type challenge!
How is it harder, you say?
Just pick 2 types, your pokemon must be either of these two types, or both. No other types.
Say, for Hoenn, you chose Dark and Grass.
You can use Shiftry, Cacturne, Mightyena, and Bellossom. However, you can't use Sharpedo or Breloom, as those are also water and fighting types.
Get it?

^Never mind, challenge idea spamming is something we all love. xD
Well yeah, I can see what you want, even though some types are pretty limited. I think we can work something out of this challenge. (:

I don't think the above challenge isn't that hard because a person can choose two really good types like dragon and something else.

560cool.

We could prevent that by a rule. Maybe allow a single good type. Maybe not allow Dragon types at all, as when someone would choose dragon, it would come next to flying or something, as that is the most common secondary type for dragons.

Actually if Dragons are such a good type why are we allowed to use them in Mono-Type?

Dragon is still a type none-the-less so it needs no restrictions.

THough if one was neccesary maybe a "no trade for your type rule" and a "must have your type before 1st Gym rule" that way someone cant get a ubsurd type combo like Dragon and Steel which are both the best typing Offensive and Defensively. (and since a Empleon and Garchomp/Altaria combo isnt allowed No game can get both Steel and Dragon)

560cool.
December 23rd, 2010, 04:28 AM
^Yeah, like I said, some combos are impossible, if not downright stupid and can't be done. Also, dragons require a lot of experience, so I suppose it's OK. As to get the dragon's level high, you do have to grind like a mad scientist.

Ghost and Fighting (the type combo that hits everything for neutral damage, exept for Normal/Ghost which doesn't exist yet) is Impossible in every gen exept for Gen IV (though the only team possible is a DuoRun with Dusknoir/Mismagius and Machamp depending on the Version and is Impossible in Diamond.)

So thats not broken unless we do a 4 Pokemon Minimum rule.

Yeah, dragons should definitely be allowed. Unless you want to have a Dragonair for the whole game, in gen 1 you would be stuck with Dragon/Flying, and there is no Flying type that isn't a dual type, making Dragonite your only Pokemon.

Okay, thread will be made by me, look forward to it!

Also, something Im just a bit confused about.

Most challenges ban legendaries, but some pseudo-legendaries are stronger than some legendaries. Moltres vs Tyranitar, who would win?

I vote that all Legendaries 600 BST and below be unbanned!

I honestly think it's up to the challenger, whether they want to use Legendaries or not. Legendaries are most likely banned for the fact that they are "Above" all other pokemon and each of them is extremely powerful in their own right, even Moltres.
The example you gave however, was a bad one. Primeape, which is by no means, pseudo-legendary could easily defeat a regice, and Gyarados could beat an entei. Type advantages trump base stats in-game, so the argument is, irrelevant.

A bit of misstatement on my part, I meant to say, which is stronger in general, Tyranitar or Moltres?

Obviously Tyranitar is stronger, as it is both an offensive and defensive threat. Do remember, though, that all challenges take place in-game, where every pokemon has value. Ubers, BST, IVs and breeding don't matter, the trainer's willingness to accept and train whatever is thrown at him is what truly matters.

For those that thought the personality challenge (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=239291) was a cool idea, it's up and ready now. c:

yeah, so my point is that legendaries shouldn't be banned. That's what I was trying to say in the first place. ^^; Making a comparison between an unbanned pokemon and a banned pokemon seemed like the best way, but I totally agree with you on that Ubers, BST, IV, and Breedinng don't matter. Hell, I once did a solo run on Silver with an Igglybuff (a crowning achievement which I am very proud of.)

I think that legendaries are banned for a combination of reasons.
1. They are, with a select few others, the strongest Pokemon in the game. This would make the challenges "too easy", so they ban Pokemon. By banning the "best" Pokemon, you are attempting to make it harder. However, if you did it by base stat total, how would you decide the cut-off? If you picked a cut-off, then someone could say "Well, Pokemon X is the best of the Pokemon allowed, so he should be banned too." And on and on until there are no more Pokemon left. By banning only legendaries, you are getting a majority of the ridiculously powerful Pokemon, and there is a nice cut-off point.
2. Most legendaries are obtained late game. If you don't hack to get them, you will be doing a majority of the game without the Pokemon you're using (in the case of a solo challenge).
3. It's a pain to look up the Pokemon by base stat total so you can see who is banned and who is not banned.
4. Banning "good" Pokemon is entirely judgmental. I would much rather prefer a Nidoking or Starmie over Tyrannitar in 3rd or 4th gen, and I would prefer a T/F/I Punch and Psychic Alakazam in 2nd Gen.

I had started a challenge idea a while back. It's called the Evil Challenge. Basically you play through with Rocket, Magma, Aqua, or Galactic Pokemon. I've got everything made, but don't have lists of Magma, Aqua, or Galactic Pokemon. Do you guys think this is a good idea, and if so, can someone help me find the lists?
____________________________________________________________________________________________________
Lastly, I have a challenge for someone. See my challenge card thing in my sig? I don't like it anymore. Can someone make me a new one? I only want my name, Monotypes, Nuzlockes, and Solos (at least for now). I know this isn't really the right place, but pleeeeeeease?

I could probably help you. This sounds really cool. I could probably make lists, unless there was a specific site which lists all of the Pokemon they use, and you just can't find it.

I don't know of any site. I've searched around and can't find it. If you can do Galactic and PM it to me, I can take care of Aqua and Magma.

Did you already take care of Rocket then? The list I'll be compiling will be of all the different species that Galactic has used, if that's what you wanted.
