Yeah, I've done Rocket. Don't know when, but I have a list for them. If you can do Galactic, then I'll do both Aqua and Magma and we'll combine our lists!

An idea for a sweet challenge!

No Trainers challenge.

1- You can't challenge most of the trainers.
2- Only Gym trainers and unavoidable trainers are allowed.
3- All Trick House trainers are allowed.
4- If a trainers is hard to avoid, you must save before him, then try to avoid him until you do it.
5- No Vs. Seeker or rematches.
6- Hacking is allowed.
7- The challenge ends in a certain way for any specific game.

a) G/R/B/Y: After you catch/defeat Mewtwo.
b) G/S/C: After you defeat Red.
c) R/S: After you catch/defeat Rayquaza.
d) E: After you defeat Steven in Meteor Falls.
e) D/P: After you defeat Pokèmon League.
f) Pt: After you defeat the Pokèmon League (twice), and complete the aftergame story.
g) HG/SS: After you defeat Red (once) and Pokèmon League (twice).
h) B/W: After you defeat the Pokèmon League (twice) and Cynthia in Sazanami Town.
j) Colosseum: Purify all 48 Shadow Pokèmon, and defeat the main story.
k) XD: Purify all 83 Shadow Pokèmon and defeat the main story.

I didn't played Colosseum/XD, and I don't know the main story and stuff, so if anyone helps me I would be grateful.

And, what do you say about this challenge?

myrrhman
December 25th, 2010, 07:38 AM
Meh, it's not too hard because you can still just grind on wild Pokemon. But, if you take that out, then it becomes some other challenge that we had somewhere at sometime that nobody liked (I don't think). Also, I would take out purify all 48 Pokemon and just stick to beating the story mode.

The final boss in Colosseum is Evice. I'm not sure about XD, though.

December 25th, 2010, 08:34 AM
I'll add on to myrrhman's post by saying that nearly every trainer in plot advancing areas of Pokemon Colosseum and XD are impossible to avoid.
This challenge doesn't really sound too interesting and seems like a lot of work, building up to nothing.
Also, Greevil is the boss of Cipher in XD, Myrrh.

I don't know what to say about the no-trainer challenge... it sounds OK, but the finishing requirements are a bit too high, as I'm used to the normal "beat champion" thing. I guess it's just me, but...

Well, anyways, merry Christmas guys and I hope you got what you wanted, cause I didn't. It was one of the worst Christmases (lol) in my life, and I never got that new iPod Touch and I only got chocolate, books, and clothes. Yeah, like stuff that your family wants to buy and uses Christmas as an excuse... lol.

The beginning of my Christmas was about the same. I got battery powered socks, 2 pairs of shoes when I have perfectly good ones right now, and a board game from my parents. A board game that I ALREADY HAD.

As for the finishing requirements, they're not all that different. I mean, beat Mewtwo/Raquaza is easy enough, you're at a good enough level if you beat the elite four. As for Steven/Cynthia; I remember Steven wasn't that bad when I beat him in emerald. Can't imagine Cynthia would be ridiculous after you beat the elite four, which is at some ridiculous level like 70's or something.

Myrrh, I could also do your new "siggy"... I just need to know where the heck are the monotypes. I only see Duo and Trio with many types lined there.

just so crammed... redsaber's FAULTDEATH2TROLLSASD

Um, yeah, not to mention the two pj's I got from my grandma. "They fit perfectly !". Of course they do... >_> And I ate my After Eight chocolate in 20 minutes... just to be shouted at...

I had a horrible Christmas...

December 25th, 2010, 06:12 PM
It is quite confusing, 560. Monotypes is actually the big orange section. For duo and trio challenges, I was only supposed to beat it once on Kanto, once on Johto, once on Hoenn, and once on Sinnoh.

Don't like the idea of no trainers, especially for Colo/XD. You can't avoid many, plus in Colosseum, there's no wild Pokemon to grind levels, so you'd fail miserably. XD at least has wild Pokemon, but still.

And hey. I got a crock pot for COOKING and GPS. OH BOY. But I also got some games and some nice clothes. No complaints. Cept my step dad was being a douche all day. He's just mad that his football team sucks and that if they win this championship, he'll have to wait another 50 years til they do it again. :D As for Alabama...give it a couple of years and we'll be sayin' 14, baby. /lol football

Some reading thing iirc. And I got some GameStop discount cards. Definitely handy for Black and White. :) Also forgot to mention, I got a FANTASTIC pink WiiMote that's manly as all hell, and I'll be a real badass playing Goldeneye 007 with it.

I worked on my favorite challenge yesterday, but the funny thing is that it took me a while to remember what I was doing. I guess I forgot I was doing challenge? ._.

That post would be GOLDEN, if you reversed it, hun. As great a player as newton is, and as much as I hate Oregon, not to mention the fact that they play in the skin and bones pac-10, the Oregon Ducks offense is a looser cannon then syd, packed with 80 tons of dynamite, while on Performance Enhancing Drugs.

I'll get around to it eventually. Be patient.

I actually like Oregon, despite them handing UT's butts to them on a silver platter. They were my third favorite team behind UT and Hawaii (because back then they were called the rainbow warriors, and how funny is that?) throughout my childhood, because I loved their colors. And that they were ducks. Now I love that they have like hundreds of combinations of uniforms they can wear. So ridic.

And now back on topic. Can someone give WeigtyWillBill (I think that's who it is, apologies if I'm wrong) a kick in the butt and tell him to update his revived triospecies challenge? I run/co-run 3 pretty big ones, and I know how much of a pain it is to have to update a bunch of stuff, and he's getting close to a month since last update.

I like the idea of a run using the same type of animal,
i.e
a mouse
so the pokemon you could use would be:
- Marill
- Raichu
- Raticate
- Sandlash
ect

Here's an idea for a challenge: The TM challenge

you post how many pokemon you want and people give you random numbers (courtesy of a random generator with a range, like this http://www.randomizer.org/form.htm) that correspond to the game's TM list. You then have to choose pokemon that can learn a corresponding TM and they have to use that TM for that pokemon.

Example:

Game: Heart Gold
Number of pokemon wanted: 4

Next poster gives you 23, 50, 3, 13

An example team would then be:
23- Azumarill (Iron Tail)
50- Arcanine (Overheat)
03- Ambipom (Water Pulse)
13- Nidoqueen (Ice Beam)

As for really hard to get ones like Battle Frontier TMs, maybe they can just be hacked but only after beating the final gym or something?

-----

Another idea is maybe a mode that includes HMs when you get a 'free-for-all' TM like Hidden Power or Return (maybe renamed to TM/HM Challenge?). Say the random generator outputs 13, 21, 15, 10. Since 21 is Frustration and 10 is Hidden Power, the member has to do generate 2 more numbers for HMs, so for example they get 1 and 4- they have to get a pokemon who learns Cut and one that learns Strength instead. Could be a bit more effort/complicated for lazy members though?

myrrhman
December 28th, 2010, 08:57 AM
We've tried animals before. It died last time, but you can feel free to try again.

As for the TM/HM challenge, seems sort of pointlessly easy. If you wanted, the only restrictions would be you could only use three moves (if you don't want to use your TM/HM, you could just teach it to your Pokemon and not ever use it), and that your team is limited to Pokemon that can learn a certain TM. For a lot of them, like Ice Beam, Thunder, etc., there are a ton of Pokemon that can learn said TMs. So your team wouldn't be that limited. I vote no.

I just want them to shut Auburn up. That is my dream. I got a houndstooth fedora today as a secret Santa gift between me and my sister, btw. I ended up opening the present with popcorn and a McDonalds card and she got the hat originally. Then my mom left the room and she was like "here you like hats more than me" lol

TM/HM challenge sounds pretty cool I guess, but...eh idk. Nothing I'd bother with. Doesn't have...oomph. I guess that's the sound effect word I'm looking for. Cause it's not that challenging if you get good TMs like 26, 35, and 24. Now, if you got 92, 12, and 2 or something...lol. Just examples though.

Animal challenge has been done to death, but feel free to send in another for approval I guess. They always die. :(

This is why I just make a list of Champions for the challenges I host and tell people to VM me when they finish. It's too much for me to keep checking a thread for sign ups. I already have enough things to do and I don't feel like keeping up with all the people participating and who drops out and what not. v_v I just make sure people are signing up correctly.

Even if Cam Newton broke NCAA rules, it's not as if the entire Oregon Ducks football team didn't. Before the Pac-10 was nerfed, the only thing
Oregon had going for them was money, Nike Money, which is breaking NCAA rules to give any players illegal benefits, one example of this is $.
Oregon is full of players from all around the country, half of which have been arrested, half of which would have gone to the U or Texas if Phil Grant wasn't paying for their Mom's house and buying them a slick new ride after they signed their soul away to the University of Oregon.

Nah, I'm the warden, silly. :P

Okay, I don't know if you guys remember way back when before I took my 3 month leave of PC when I was going on and on about my super awesome challenge that I was working on. Well, I might as well tell you about it.

First, I'm going to have to credit redsaber with the original idea, sort of, but I made it playable. Really the only problem I have right now is that it's geared almost exclusively to people with Emulators.

Basically, you use "money" to buy all your Pokemon and items and stuff. The goal is to buy Arceus. He costs a lot of money; like $1,000,000 or something. Everytime you beat a trainer in the game you're playing, you get a little money. You can also get money by selling stuff that you have. So basically if you get money in the game, you get money in this challenge.

Now what do you use money to buy? Well, as you already know, you can buy Pokemon with money. You may also buy TMs, items and stuff, and Evolution Stones. That's right. Your Pokemon can't evolve unless you pay money. I'll have a list if we actually do this with the prices of everything on them.

So you play through the game and beat it. For example, lets say you have around 1,000 left after you beat the champion. That's not nearly enough to buy Arceus! Oh no! But don't fear, you can buy him in small chunks. After you beat a game, you start over on a new game, keeping your money. So you could pay off 1,000 towards Arceus. But then you don't have any money for the next game, so you have to strategically pay off only a certain amount each time, so that you can play through the first part of the next game. So you could pay 500 and then have 500 to start the next game.

This is the general idea of the challenge. I know its really confusing, I just got up so I'm not all the way into things. We'll have to tweak the amount of money for stuff later on if you guys like this idea.

Egad! I'm appalled! How dare someone suggest that I be kicked in the tush. How vile!

And I just updated yesterday, but I'm pretty sure I skipped a few things, so I'll finish that today

@myrrh : Ahh, so that's that clutter redsaber the troll posted sometime ? Apart from the gremmar and the fact that I couldn't understand anything from his post, I kinda got the thing. It sounds like a cool thing, but with buying Pokemon you mean cheat for one or just get one from the wild when he is available ? Let's not forget we need a list of prices for Pokemon...

This sounds so weird... xD

You mean the Red Challenge or whatever? There was something I didn't approve and it was made by him and I keep seeing it like...everyday. lmao I never understood what he was going for, so I made other mods read it and they didn't get it either. So I was just like "well if they don't get it, and I don't get it, will anyone else get it?"

December 30th, 2010, 10:56 AM
I'm not a fan of the Red challenge. I don't like the idea of having to buy everything needed to complete the game, it just seemed hard to manage.
In other news, I lost my HG run because Bugsy's Scyther was dishing out crit U-turns like nobody's business.

December 30th, 2010, 11:00 AM
I dislike having to buy things irl why should I buy them to complete a challenge hmm...

And that sucks. Where was your Quilava in all this? Oh that's right, you went with Chikorita. Where was your Geodude for this mess?

Speaking of HG, say hello to my HG team in my sig. They're all so cute. Hover for movesets. :'D Not quite done, of course. And no, they're not for a challenge, that's actually a regular playthrough. But they're so great and wonderful.

My Geodude had 29 HP, I assumed it would survive U-Turn. Of course it's a crit, and everything else was critted into oblivion. I'll admit I even had a Milotic in my party that I wasn't going to use until later. Even Milotic can't survive his Crit-Turns. I guess I'll go do some other challenge on HG using a Flygon.

December 30th, 2010, 08:13 PM
Okay, just a couple of challenge ideas that popped into my head ^^

1: 'Mono nature' challenge
-Here's how this one will work; you have to complete any pkmn game using pokemon of one nature only. The person who comment's under you choses that nature, based on what they think of your personality (profile, signature, comments etc). Also, just to make it slightly more fun, you can only catch pokemon that slightly resemble that nature; ie if you get 'rash' you could have a primape or weaville, but not a alakazam or slaking.

2: The currently unamed challenge (gym swap or something?)
-This one's gonna be difficult to explain, so sorry if you can't tell what I'm saying. Each time you defeat a gym, you have to change you pokemon to ones you catch after it. Example: On Firered, you have your starter and a butterfree when you defeat Brock. You need to go to the next route out of Pewter, catch some pokemon, deposit the butterfree and starter, and use those. The rules would be no legendaries, no cheating (it's really not needed) you can't go out of a city with a gym leader to a city you haven't been to yet; ie you can't leave Cerulean and go to Vermillion until you bet Misty; and you can't catch pokemon in previous routes once you've bet the gym leader.

Why can't I do them: First one needs work, I can't explain the second one without a huge lecture; time constraints, I probably wouldn't finish; and I don't think I'd be the best person for looking after a thread.

Enjoy!

Nature sounds interesting, however it's hard to find Pokemon that have the nature you want, and not a lot of us want to SR for our specific assigned nature. Even with the added element of having Pokemon that seem to fit the nature, it still seems limited.

And though your second suggestion has been done before, there's not a current one up and running right now, so after you think of a name, read up the rules to make sure it's all in check, and make a thread for it if you want and I will get to it when I can.

649
December 30th, 2010, 09:37 PM
Yeah the second one is like my now-dead 1 Pokemon 1 Gym challenge. The only difference is I require solo runs. You can start it up again, but there is a reason it died. Too complicated for some, too much grinding for others.

Aright then, thanks for the feedback!
Sorry for not realisng the second one was done, I've only really look at the first page of this section ^^; my bad.

I knew the nature one had a few errors, I know I also don't use mons if they have a bad nature. I might try to work with it a little more, and see if its any good.

I think that both idea's need some work though before I'd consider making a thread, but thanks for the feedback again!

Yay, Cocky in the team. But he's still Little Chicken for me. <3

And the "What you want to see in 2011" thread has pretty interesting opinions. I tried zooming through them pretty fast, but they're just too many. v_v'

On another note... I'm at the hotel today, since the slopes are completely full. Nobody went skiing, and I am sitting in the hotel lobby (where I have Wi-Fi signal) with people staring at what I search. I try keeping 5 tabs open at a time, and switch to something like Facebook when people stare, but it's so annoying... u_u

Just want to point out that just because someone says "oh that challenge has been done" doesn't mean that it can't be redone. If for some reason it failed the first time, try to improve on what you think might have caused it to die, and then try to give new life to it. You guys make it sound so bad when you say "oh that's been done before." It comes off as a "that's boring, don't do that" to some people. Should be a little more encouraging. :)

And yes, I felt like raising a Blaziken, but for my favorite challenge on SS, I ended up with Combusken, so now I'm kinda burnt out (no pun intended) on the Torchic line.

I don't see how the Mononature challenge would be a challenge. You get an entire team of whomever you want, you just have to keep resetting until you get the nature you want. I never bother with natures, and my challenges already end up just fine, so with the variety of Pokemon you can have, I don't see this as challenging at all.

Maybe it could be converted to a bad-nature challenge, in which you have to beat the game using natures that don't suit the Pokemon you have.

December 31st, 2010, 12:17 PM
I guess, but still. I mean, you know I've done quite the number of challenges. I have never checked natures once in my life. Well, I take that back. I did when I was considering to try Contests. I grew quickly bored. I'm assuming that at least a few of the pokemon had bad natures, but I just grinded a few more levels til they were acceptable. I don't think I've broken 70 on a challenge that natures were in. So, I had plenty of room to make up for the bad nature.

Jak
December 31st, 2010, 12:39 PM
The most challenging part of a nature challenge is actually catching what you want and it, by some miracle, having the nature you want.

The ability synchronize has an outside battle effect where wild pokemon have a 50% chance of having the same nature of the pokemon with synchronize.

Has to be the first pokemon in your party though.

So you basically just have to SR til you get a Ralts with the right nature, then go around with Ralts leading to get your other team.

While this is a good idea, Ralts are usually very rare, as well as Abra. Getting them with the right nature, as well as the right ability (both have two abilites) takes FOREVER. Trust me, I bred a Synchronize Abra of every nature, including neutral natures, in SoulSilver. It took weeks. Imagine trying to actually look for the pokemon in the wild. *shivers*

Unless we were allowed to hack in a correct natured/ability Abra/Ralts, it'd be difficult just to start the challenge. If we were allowed to do so, then I see no problem with this challenge at all. However, the whole 'hacking' portion would also leave some people out that don't use emulators. Sure, they could trade from another game, but they'd have to be lucky to have a synchronizer with the correct nature...

And by then, you would have spent more time than it takes to get through half the game. -_-

Anyway, I have an idea for a challenge if you guys would consider giving it a cursory glance?

Title: "Thank You For The Gift." Challenge

Playing method: Emulator or GBA/DS. However, an Emulator will make things easier if you don't have more than one gaming system , a friend to play w/, or a DS w/ a GBA cartridge slot.

Generations: I-V (RGBY/GSC remakes are allowed in place of the originals)

Pokemon Restrictions: Event pokes (Spiky Pichu, etc.) allowed; Wandering [Entei, Raikou, Lati twins, Moltres, Articuno, Zapdos) allowed

No mascots: Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Ho-Oh, Lugia, Dialga, Palkia, Arceus, Suicune, Mew (Nintendo events included), Mewtwo (same as Mew), Zekrom, Reshiram, Deoxys, Zorua, Zoroark

Basically, if it played a major part in a game/movie (idk how important Spiky Pichu was to the plot since I stopped watching movies after 4Ever) then it can't be used.

Basic Premise: Each trainer must play the game of their choice with Pokemon not registered as their own, meaning they were traded. I'm sure everyone remembers how Ash's Charizard was originally another trainer's and began to get more and more disobedient as he gained levels? Or, for those who have pets, you may remember how your dog, etc. didn't obey commands given for the first few months because it was still learning to trust you and get used to you. That's the challenge aspect. Traded Pokemon gain levels faster, and evolve quicker than Pokemon obtained normally. The more they level up, the more disobedient they tend to grow when you don't have enough badges. The goal is to get through the game trying to keep your Pokemon obedient/happy as you win badges and earn their respect.

Challenge Ends: For all games (yes, even HGSS), the challenge ends when you beat the Elite 4. By then, you would have received the 8th badge that makes Pokemon over lvl 70 listen to you.

***Special Condition for 3rd Gen and beyond: Anyone who plays RSE, DPPt, HGSS, BW must have at least one Pokemon participate in a Contest and win the Master class. I don't recommend the Pokeathon unless you have a fast computer or are playing on a real DS.

Hacking: Hacking is allowed for changing the OT of gamers playing 4th and 5th gen on emulators (no wifi and DPPt, BW freezes when attempting to connect and run 2 games), other than that, all gamers must legitimately trade.

(Yes, I will participate in my own challenge)

Hey, that seems pretty fresh. I like it a lot. I could easily do it too, I trade with myself all the time. lol Though I ain't got the time for it. I know I get annoyed when those traded Pokemon don't listen too, haha. But yeah, I really like that idea. :)

Enigma
January 1st, 2011, 07:16 PM
I would participate in that challenge. It sounds a little too easy, even if you have the one Master Contest that you have to complete. Pokemon that disobey don't do it all the time, and if they do, they usually just use a random move. Give your pokemon all attacks that do damage (ex. not moves like Toxic or Reflect) and overlevel them, and it should be a pretty easy game.
I almost thought that having pokemon assigned by other people was a good idea, with the twist being that those assigners would be like the OT of the pokemon. I think that would take too long, though, especially for those that want six pokemon, or those that want to get started immediately.

Sooyun

Thank you. Plus, it's perfect for those who like teaching Frustration/Return >:D I was playing through HG before starting my Mono challenge with only the Pokemon given to me through events (Cyndaquil, Togepi, Eevee, etc.) and thought 'Why are they registered under my name if people basically gave them to me? I didn't catch them in battle, so they aren't really mine!" lol ^_^

Yeah. If you think about it, with over leveling and the right moveset, the game could go pretty quickly. Then again I like a quick game. I find grinding tedious so I wouldn't battle until I was 10+ levels over Clair or something. However, if you combine it with say... monotyping, or only baby Pokemon, etc. it could be challenging. (Though I could have leveled 10+ for Clair even with my Sunny Day-Solar Beam Typhlosion, Magmar, and Vulpix -_-;;. *doesn't want to remember Lorelei in FR T_T*

I beg to differ about difficulty. I traded a Tyrogue to Diamond for a challenge once, and it fainted itself in battle all the time from disobeying. v_v

Enigma
January 1st, 2011, 07:46 PM
I guess that I'd have to say that difficulty varies with the different experiences people have while playing a game. My Mr. Mime in my Yellow challenge never fainted from disobeying. I would have to mention that it'd also depends on what Pokemon you use, since Mr. Mime's special was high (since both specials were the same thing).
So, I guess that if someone wants to make this more challenging, they can use whatever pokemon they desire, and the same applies if you just want a quick challenge to brag to your friends about. xP

January 2nd, 2011, 02:34 AM
It seems like if you're just really really careful you can do this easily. First few gyms they wouldn't obey, but if you did have 6 Pokemon, they wouldn't have to be as highly leveled.

(I'd still do it though)

chaos11011
January 2nd, 2011, 08:20 AM
Are you allowed to trade mulitple pokemon (as in more then 6) because i would do it on White, and like every 2 routes I would substitute one of my pokemon (randomly) and pick a random pokemon to substitute it with the same lvl and legit moves. (and a diffrent OT of course)

Which leads me to this.

The Replacement Challenge
Todd and Riley were oh so sad, then they came cross a Pokesav. Then they obtained an DS Game and a Emulator so rad. Now after every 3 routes the pick a Pokemon to have.

Yeah I refrenced a Child's show, come at me bro.

Basicly in this challenge after every 3 routes you replace one of your pokemon (randomly) with another Pokemon (again random) Confuse here's an example.

After I beat Falkner on Heart Gold I have a team of Pidgey, Cyndaquil, Bellsprout, Geodude, Zubat and Beedrill. And with the the use of a RNG it picks 4, the 4th pokemon on my team is Geodude so I replace that. Then the RNG picks 266 so I add Silcoon to my party.

You MUST have 6 Pokemon in your team so you wont have an easy time Soloing. I honestly think this is a good challenge because say you have a pokemon you really like or a Pokemon that can easily beat a gym, and BAM you get a pokemon you dislike/ pokemon who sucks against the gym.

I recomend playing on a Emulator for Easy acess to the Pokemon. If you dont use an Emulator, use the PC from one of your other games (AI I have 50 pokemon from the PC on SS so I use the RNG to choose that) and breed the pokemon / train it to the proper level.

You can trade in as many as you want, but you'll want to keep a regular team that you'll use for the majority of your game (for simplicity's sake I suppose). However, if you want to change Pokemon because one or two just aren't working for you, then yes, you can trade in as long as they're lvl 5 and under a different OT. I'm going to play it on White myself, but I'm adding the unevolved/baby challenge to the mix.

to use

January 2nd, 2011, 10:52 AM
IMO not a hard challenge at all. Even if you could only use one egg group, groups like Humanshape have access to Magmar, Electabuzz, Jynx, Machoke, and Alakazam. That's a pretty nice team right there. Egg group challenge would just be another one of those challenges that selects a set of Pokemon you can use. We're trying to stay away from that.

Sooyun
January 2nd, 2011, 11:18 AM
Egg group challenges are very easy, like myrrhman said. Plus, it would be too close to a Monotype challenge since some Pokemon in the same egg group usually share 1 or 2 typings. BTW, I created the thread for my challenge this morning. I'm just wondering whether you all are in the process of giving your "Yea" or "Nay"? Unless you're filtering through the dozens of other challenges looking for the good/decent ones? lol

Enigma
January 2nd, 2011, 03:42 PM
The egg group challenge sounds a little easy, unless you mixed it up a little. Like having a party of 6, and your pokemon must altogether belong to 12 different groups (similar to the 12 type challenge). That would be a challenge I would gladly participate in.

I just finished my Duospecies run for the 2nd gen on Crystal. Just gotta do Emerald and a 4th gen game, and I'm done. I could probably finish by tomorrow....

Maybe something where you go through the whole game with pokemon that can't evolve.

example: you say you want six pokemon from the hoenn region:

Absol
Sableye
Mawile
Plusle
Volbeat
Torkoal

No picking pairs, plusle and minun together is not allowed, Illumise and Volbeat together is not allowed, that's just to make it harder ;)
also, the next poster is the one that picks your pokemon for you.

I am going to start this thread myself.

Pretty sure that this is the same thing as the No Family challenge, which we already have. :/


EDIT: Correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't see it anywhere on the first page, so maybe you could just recreate that one? (if everyone else actually wants to do that challenge)

myrrhman
January 2nd, 2011, 06:04 PM
Yeah it's been done before, minus the 'no pairs' restriction. I mean, I'd do it, but then again, some of my favorite Pokemon don't evolve (Lapras, Heracross, Sableye, Spiritomb). Also, if you do the no pairs thing, the already limited selection of Pokemon is further edited down. I think its fine if you end up getting pairs/counterparts, only a couple are like the same type (Plusle/Minun, Volbeat/Illumise and Solrock/Lunatone). I really don't see why you would need to take out Pokemon if they have a counterpart.

Enigma
January 2nd, 2011, 06:43 PM
I'd probably do it, since I never had the chance to do the No Family Challenge. I do have to agree though, the no pairs thing is kind of pointless. You wouldn't have much diversity anyway if you did use a pair.
My Personality Challenge is finally getting off to a start, if anyone wants me to assign them a team.

Wait, I'm sorry, what? When did we say we wanted to stay away from challenges that you get to choose your team? Guys, no offense, but when you say things like that, it's really discouraging. We don't need every challenge to be strikingly hard. We don't need every challenge to have Pokemon assigned by another challenger. Like I said before, we're doing a good job of keeping a good variety of difficulty with the challenges we have. Let's not take that away, please. Just because that challenge seems easy doesn't mean you have to make it easy. Just because someone might hypothetically choose that certain team if they choose Humanshape as an Egg Group doesn't mean everyone that participates in the challenge will choose an team like that.

Sorry, I just felt like that was a little rude to say we're steering clear of those types of challenges, because we're not. Just because a challenge doesn't seem "challenging" to some doesn't mean it's not to others. Please keep that in mind, and realize that you guys aren't the ones approving the challenges. I am.

January 2nd, 2011, 10:45 PM
I certainly didn't mean to sound discouraging when I said that. Nor do I think that Pokemon assigned by another challenger in general are any harder/easier than those that you select your own team. I understand that the only person who gets to approve challenges is you.

I guess what I was trying to say was that I'm sorta sick of challenges that just groups the Pokemon together, and then you pick a group. Monotype, Color, Special Pairs, Beginning letter, Anime, that's all they do. You pick a group, and then you pick 3-6 from that group. While they are all different, and range in difficulty, they're all so similar.

Challenges like the Nuzlocke/Solo/Favorite/Scramble are more fun (in my opinion) because they're all so different from each other. In the Nuzlocke, you can just have bad luck and be screwed over if you find yet another pidgey as your first Pokemon on a route or if one of your hard trained Pokemon faints to an unlucky Critical Hit. In the solo you only get one single Pokemon to use, but it can be anyone you want. The favorite can screw you over if you like a Pokemon like Caterpie and it unluckily gets picked. In the scramble, you are in no control of what your team looks like. I like these challenges so much because there is so much variety in them. I guess in my frustration of another game of categories, I misspoke. I apologize.

Sorry you're irked today Sydian.

No disrespect to you, but myrrhman does have a point in regard to the constant groupings, classifications, and exclusions (like this isn't already shoved down our throats by the games themselves) that is present in a lot of challenges of late. How many Pokemon are there now? 649? There is so much potential that can be done as far as changing the way the games are played beyond egg groups, monotypes, etc. That's one of the reasons people love the games because the games set themselves as blank slates that make possibilities endless. Why limit ourselves to a few types of challenges simply because they'll get the most feedback when there can be many things possible that people haven't even thought of -or have thought of, but are too timid to voice for fear of it being too different to be noticed?

I think you have it wrong. The problem isn't that people are scared that challenges will be too different, the problem is that they don't know how similar they are to other challenges. The invention of Monotype Challenges was a great thing. I believe it was the spark that led to there even being a Challenge section, because the challenge was so popular that people started trying to think of other things like it. It is great because there are some easy types and some hard types, and some easy gens and some hard gens. But the main thing is that it was the first of its kind. Because it is so popular, unfortunately all the other challenges similar to it (as discussed in above post) are just going to be compared to it, and unfortunately, not many, if any, of them will be seen as on par with the monotype challenge for it to really get off the ground.

Song: Walk by Pantera

Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistence <-- Slaking (lazy people are bother by people bothering them)
One step from lashing out at you... <-- Primeape (U mad?)
You want in to get under my skin <-- Arbok (Shed Skin for an ability)
And call yourself a friend <-- Plusle (Cheerleading, happy pokemon with Helping Hand)
I've got more friends like you <-- Minun (Same as above)
What do I do? <-- Ditto (Ditto does whatever you do, other wise it has no options)

Basically, you choose from one to six of the ugliest Pokèmon ever, standing to your own tastes.

Agreed to the Lyrics challenge, it lets you be creative.

And why don't we do something similar to the New year's egg swap, where you have 3 eggs and you are required to swap those slots at least 3 times before you can start? Or something like that.

It'd be cool.

January 3rd, 2011, 07:32 AM
I like the lyrics challenge.
As for the ugly challenge, could we do something random and rule out Purugly, so that people have to actually think about your team.
Egg Swap: I like it, as long as there are some ground rules. Since they're eggs, I know I'm going to breed on some good egg moves. I personally think everyone should do the same. Which would mean no Magikarp/Caterpie/etc. eggs. What do you guys think?

Timmetje
January 3rd, 2011, 09:36 AM
Maybe a nature challenge that will go like this.

You choose a nature, let's say Adamant
You pick your starter and check its nature
is it Adamant? You can use it. Is it another nature? You can use it until you find a pokémon of the right nature
After you have your starter and get your pokébals you may catch a pokémon. If it's the right nature you can have it. Otherwise you may never catch that pokémon again. Get it?

What do you think of that? You maybe can choose two natures to make it less hard if you want.

Enigma
January 3rd, 2011, 11:57 AM
I will be starting up the Lyrics challenge. ^_^


Ugliest: Might be a little hard for me to decide, but I guess I'd do it. xD Maybe I could pick a game with really bad sprites so I have a larger variety. (lolGreen)
Who knows, maybe it can evolve into a "Most Beautiful Pokemon Challenge". 8D

Egg swap: I think this is a great idea. So are you just breeding eggs and you just keep swapping them out until a certain point where you have 3 in your party and they hatch? Or is it literally like the New Year's Egg Swap? Because then people on emulators would have some trouble with this. They could still trade (even though a lot of people don't know how) but I find it kind of...troublesome. xP
Please tell me if I have the concept completely wrong, because I feel like I do.

Nature challenge: I think that version sounds okay. Having two natures would probably make it a little better, since there are twenty-five natures.

Ugliest challenge...maaaay be a bit weird. There's a lot of Pokemon that some people think are ugly and some people like. For instance. I think Spiritomb is adorable, but most people think it's ugly and yeah, don't ask. lol But hey, I think it could still work.

Basically you would draft evolution lines and playthrough the game. If a Pokemon faints, than it's permaboxed, although you
can catch/trade as many members of the evo lines you drafted as you want.

Your cool idea gave me a cool idea! Pokecommunity should hold a cup of sorts. We have a signup time. Everyone who wants to participate in the cup signs up. Then, two teams are made, with an equal balance of experienced people, new people, and people in between. Then, we'll have two different drafts, one for the experienced people and one for the new people (so that there will be more Pokemon available). We'll set some rules like total number of rounds, maybe a "salary cap", etc. Then, we will publish another signup sheet. It will have some Nuzlockes, Monotypes, Solos, speed runs, etc. People on your team gather and sign up for slots in the challenges. We'll discuss beforehand if we want just one challenge per person, or if we want two, etc. People gather and discuss because some people won't have a strong team for Monotypes, but have one really strong solo runner. They'll sign up for a solo challenge most likely. You can only use your own Pokemon, not your teammates. After you have everyone on your team signed up, the other team's lineup would be revealed. Then you start playing your assigned challenge, and fastest completion (by in game time) of the challenge wins! There will be like a one month period to finish or else you forfeit and the other team wins. Whichever team gets the most points by the end of the month wins!

But what about a challenge where you can ONLY use the 5 pokeballs the professor gives you at the start of the game. If you blow all 5 on one pokemon or fail to catch one at all then your stuck with the pokemon you have for the rest of the game.

There would have to be a rule for HM slaves. Because if you start with a Charmander and then blow your Pokeballs on Pidgeys, you can't get across water at all.

And I'm glad everyone likes the idea. I think we should publish the first sign up sheet in the notices right as it hits summer, to give us the most time. So I think we should take these 5 months to make sure everything will run smoothly.

As active as you think Summer will be, where I live I will have no break what-so-ever. SO having it in the summer won't really be the best for me. Because that's the busiest time of the year for me.

Your cool idea gave me a cool idea! Pokecommunity should hold a cup of sorts. We have a signup time. Everyone who wants to participate in the cup signs up. Then, two teams are made, with an equal balance of experienced people, new people, and people in between. Then, we'll have two different drafts, one for the experienced people and one for the new people (so that there will be more Pokemon available). We'll set some rules like total number of rounds, maybe a "salary cap", etc. Then, we will publish another signup sheet. It will have some Nuzlockes, Monotypes, Solos, speed runs, etc. People on your team gather and sign up for slots in the challenges. We'll discuss beforehand if we want just one challenge per person, or if we want two, etc. People gather and discuss because some people won't have a strong team for Monotypes, but have one really strong solo runner. They'll sign up for a solo challenge most likely. You can only use your own Pokemon, not your teammates. After you have everyone on your team signed up, the other team's lineup would be revealed. Then you start playing your assigned challenge, and fastest completion (by in game time) of the challenge wins! There will be like a one month period to finish or else you forfeit and the other team wins. Whichever team gets the most points by the end of the month wins!
This is something we're definetly doing, I agree with Syd though, we can save it for break. I'd rather we give points for each someone time a certain type challenge with their team, and we can have divisions/brackets if too many sign up and we don't have enough evo lines to hand out. We'll have a lot of time to plan it out so it's fair and fun. Legends will be barred from participation, of course.
This is going to be amazing.

Inferno hurt herself in confusion!

But yeah, Karpman and I were talking on AIM and these were the general agreements we came up with (a lot of these ideas we've already discussed, but now it looks a little prettier)



There would be two teams with balanced members on each side. A committee (set up here, soon) will check and balance the teams out.
Once the teams are set up, we will move on to a draft. Selections would be based off of families, not individual Pokemon. I think there are around 290 families of Pokemon, and I imagined somewhere around 10 families per person, which would allow up to 29 participants. If we have more than that, I think we should do an upper (more experienced) division and a lower (less experienced) division. The two teams would stay the same, just for the selection of Pokemon, you are put into divisions.
For the draft, Pokemon will be arranged based on how good they are, and assigned a number ranging from something like 1-5. During the draft, there will be a number (subject to change, but I say something around 30) that cannot be exceeded with your 10 pokemon. This way, certain teams won't be too much better than other teams. It will be more about diversity over pure power.
After all the Pokemon are distributed, a new sign up sheet is introduced. This will have a certain number of monotypes, solo challenges, Nuzlockes, etc. for the team members to sign up for. They will not know this/have access to this list until they pick Pokemon, so they can't really plan on making certain teams for every challenge, because they won't know exactly how many of each challenge there will be.
After each team has signed up on the second sheet, you will "race" by in game time on livestream. The first person to finish the challenge wins points for their team. Certain "harder" challenges will be worth more points than the "easier" challenges. If the person you are racing does not do their challenge in a certain amount of time, they are disqualified and you win by default.

For the point totals, Karpman and I are planning on each making a rough draft of what we think the values should be, and then comparing notes. You guys can join in if you want. What do you think about the whole thing?

Hmm this sounds good, but will there be certain rules about the 2x speed button on emulators, or will we not even be allowed emulators? Anyway I'm a bit confused about the live stream stuff seen as I've never used it.

Just a question, Say I join up to a solo challenge and am assigned with the following families:
Bulbusaur-Venusuar, Growlithe-Arcanine, Ryhdon-Rhyperior, Dratini-Dragonite, Hoppip-Jumpluff, Unown, Wurmple-Dustox/Beautifly, Feebas-Milotic, Gible-Garchomp and Dokkora-Roopushin.
I then pick to solo with Bulbasaur through Venusuar, once I have finished the first challenge if I do another challenge am I limited to the pokemon that I have already been given, the same pokemon as I used before or am I given a completely new set of pokemon?

chaos11011
January 6th, 2011, 03:59 AM
So wait, for people on Nuzlocke how will that work? If a certain group (or person) has 10 families, will you start off the game with those 10, or will you still have to take the chance of "not find the Pokemon on the First encounter" or will you have infinate times to catch that Pokeon, but capture that Pokemon once.

We might not even need to care about the 2x speed. Since we're going with in game time (At least I think we should), if you use the speed button, that will only hurt your time if you hit a wall.

I thought that it would be more like everyone just has one or two challenges to do. That way, the number of challenges completed stays the same and makes it easier on the committee to see who won.
So wait, for people on Nuzlocke how will that work?

I was thinking about that. I'm thinking that if you're doing a Nuzlocke, since the Nuzlocke challenge basically completely goes against this challenge, if you end up picking Nuzlocke for your challenge, the Pokemon that you use for the draft just don't matter. That's still okay if we choose to have everyone do two challenges each, because then you can pick a Nuzlocke and a non Nuzlocke and still need the Pokemon you picked. If we only do one challenge per person, then you probably want to pick worse Pokemon, because your team would need the better ones. I've also thought about breaking the draft instead of a free for all and going against everyone, breaking into teams and each team gets to choose through all the Pokemon.

Honestly, I would stay away from a solo, because I always want to use Swampert (he's just so good, what can I say?) You might want to try a monotype to force yourself to use more than just Swampert, or pick a type that's not water or ground.

I brought up the idea that all challenges should be done on a Universal SS ROM with all trade/sinnoh evos enabled to happen by level/happiness, whilst talking with Myrrh. The challenges will be done on Livestream with a Host watching (if one of the hosts are busy we can find a replacement supervisor) and any cheaters will be barred from further participation.

Maybe some people have pretty weak machines (or netbooks...) and can't run a DS ROM properly. I think that people should decide whether they want Gen I or V, or anything inbetween (spelled it wrong, I think >.<).

Also, a lot of the HG/SS roms are broken. I still have a freezing issue on mine. I got used to it (save a lot, exit the emulator instead of resetting to overwrite the save file), but for those who haven't played on a rom, this would cause major frustration. I also agree with 560cool on the comp issue.

I think we should have different generations up for grabs as well. I would try and get Blue because that's the only cartridge I have. Everything else is on my comp, and if I tried to play Red or Yellow, the speed button would totally mess me up - gotta assign something like the end button of something lol.

Why not try and see if we can do multiple generations/regions? There's more variety that way, and you can split the families based on game availability as well.

Exile
January 6th, 2011, 12:46 PM
I'd really like to keep it in one generation, it being the 4th one.
It has a good variety of Pokemon to choose from and I can use an evo editor without a Windows 7 .ocx error.
I'll talk it over with Myrrh.

myrrhman
January 6th, 2011, 03:32 PM
We should make it multiple generations. For a lot of people like myself, challenges can be done on many different generations. They should probably sign up on the sign up sheet last, because they can be placed wherever needed.

I think Karpman's idea of universal games potentially work, but I'd like to try to stay away from that. You can still trade on ROMs with various methods (TGB, VBA link) and no challenge requires you to trade, so I feel that if you want a Pokemon that evolves via trade, you should get the emulator yourself.

As far as later generations (IV and V), if you want to use them and can't find a good ROM for them, but sign up for the challenge anyways, tough cookies. You still have a month to find a good ROM.

I guess the next step here is to determine how many people need to be on the committee.

649
January 6th, 2011, 05:35 PM
A Specialist in each challenge, a moderator (Sydian, of course), and several hosts. Maybe some monitors/judges. These are my ideas. Also, are we going to do challenges other than Solo, Nuzlocke, and Monotypes? Or is that definitely it?

January 6th, 2011, 05:54 PM
I'd like to do some speedruns, where game time doesn't matter but real time does (so basically tape down your speed button). I also want to do more challenges, but I'm starting to draw blanks here. Any help?

And yes, I think that's an appropriate sized committee.

January 6th, 2011, 05:56 PM
I was thinking of the random challenge, but that varies from people to people, and doesn't fit in with the specific family clause.

What about the egg swap challenge, mentioned a while back? We can prohibit any "useless" eggs. It's also a fitting event challenge.

January 6th, 2011, 07:24 PM
I probably won't participate, but yes, events do need a moderator, and I have no problem in doing so. I didn't really feel like reading everything because I didn't want my brain to explode, so I don't know if this has been said, but are we planning on doing this at the beginning of summer or for the get-together? Cause personally, I would rather have it during the get-together this year since last year our plans for having a challenge in the GT didn't work out too well. And since this is a big event, we don't need an event every month or two like discussed in the ideas thread for this year. I should probably lock that now since we know what we're going to do. lol

I also have a little something planned for next month. Not too big, kinda of minor and silly considering it's a Valentine's Day thing, but it's more of a pilot than anything. And no, I'm not telling you what it is. 8) Just know it's nothing long and drawn out, and it's very simple and doesn't require starting a new game unless you want to.

Get togethers are normally in August, so obviously we don't want it during a month touching that. And then there will be something next month. So...I'm thinking the best months for that would be April, May, or June? (I typed Mary instead of May for a second. Dunno what I was thinking.)

And no, it's not a race! XD

January 6th, 2011, 11:32 PM
I think I have a challenge in mind for myself, which is similar to the monotype challenge, but a little different.
Hm... how do I explain this... Well, Let's say I start out with Mudkip, which evolves into Swampert, a water/ground type. My next pokemon would have to have either one of those types. Next, I would use a Wingull, which is Water/Flying. now I would have to choose either a water or flying type Pokemon as my next one, such as Taillow.

tl;dr You have to use a Pokemon with at least one type in common with the last Pokemon you choose to train.

I like that idea, alternative. You can, however, with your rules, do a monotype challenge. So, I'd put something in the rules about you can only use the same type 3 times in a row or something, to prevent this.

Here's two nifty runs I've found (not made by me but someone on the Nuzlocke Forums)

You are forbidden to not teach a Pokémon a new move it will learn. So even when it's useless, you HAVE to teach it your Pokémon. Also when you find a new TM, you HAVE to teach it one Pokémon in your team (or maybe box) immediately. When no of your Pokémon can learn the TM, you have to throw it away/sell it.

Another rule:
You are not able to use a move twice in a row. Pokémon who only know just one move may be an exeption.

This is a really good challenge Idea. The Sketch Challenge! You would need YAPE, though. Basically, you pick your pokemon, and edit their learnsets, replacing every move with Sketch! Imagine the infinite possibilities!

I recommend looking up something called 'Lameboy' that works on R4's and such - it's a great way to emulate gens I&II with some speed without it getting to the ridiculous speeds VBA does. Look it up on google (need 3 more posts before I can put up links), the info's there.

And to the others, I'd like to express an interest in this big challenge thingy that you're thinking of organising. I'm going to read up on it after this post, but I'm definitely interested.

Also good, but using YAPE for every Pokemon would turn out horribly tedious. I say just edit the moveset for the Pokemon you plan to use. That would be so much easier.

And Im doing another one of those random moveset challenges. The one I created myself, using YAPE and a random number generator. Basically, I pick 3 random pokemon, and replace every move in their learnset with a random move. And I also randomize the types and abilities. It's awesome. I got a Flying/Dark Magcargo with Fly, Torment, Sky Uppercut, Ice Punch, etc. It has the ability Water Absorb O_o.

I might have to get a part soldered on inside my laptop. But, if I can just live with a laptop that I have to jiggle the power cord in, it's not broken. Which I am doing.

Also the birthday ended a little better. I got enough money to fence next semester again (thank Arceus, I didn't think I was going to be able to).

I too am having problems choosing which challenge to beat. I'm working on a Nuzlocke, but I have like 4 other challenges that I've started. The problem is that most of them are Ultimate Challenges, and I'm on DPPt, which I don't want to start because its my least favorite generation and it takes the longest. Oh well, back to the Nuzlocke I guess.

What you just said about the Ultimate Challenges is so very true. I'm on Pearl for my Ultimate Duospecies, and I've been so...reluctant to begin because I would also have to say that 4th gen is my least favorite, with the exception of HG/SS. Then again, I have RL stuff popping up everywhere, so that makes it more difficult to find the time. :/

Fencing, myrrh. Still doing it ? <3 Me too. (:

And I'm really inactive. Not challenges, not discussion. But my best friend is another person, on the good side. And the details of my inactiveness stop there. Oh, and my Maths recovery. Just one more 10 (A) and my semestrial grade will become... 8 (-B) :D :> n_n'

PS : Sydian always double-posts most of the time often. Must be the evil Internet. Or PC connection.

Also myrrh, my old netbook (that 4 GB HDD thingamajong I kept complaining about. Remember ?) also had the same problem with the jiggly power cord for charge. One of the [thousands] of reasons why I dropped.

And now my monitor's also's gotten a jiggly cord... but I kinda tied it to my speaker, and it seems to do the job. (:

HEY GUYZ I THOUGHT UP ME A CHALLENGE!

The Domino Challenge.

I can't explain it to well so I'm going to explain it in Examples.

(The Starter is excluded for type issue btw)

Lets say you have a Budew, it's Grass / Poison, (so its domino would be like 1|4) so you have to get a Poison type as your next pokemon. So you find a Zubat, Poison / Flying(So it's domino would be 4 | 2) and you MUST add it to a team. Add ect.

So your team at this point would be [1|4][4|2]. If you find a Flying type, you must add it to your team.

Add any Rules for extra spice, like Nuzlocke, or just leave it plain and boom your done.

January 12th, 2011, 03:22 PM
From what I understand, this challenge is pretty much the same as the Semi-Type (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=240580) challenge, but I couldn't think of a better name for it. Still, it seems pretty much the same imo.

chaos11011
January 12th, 2011, 03:32 PM
Yeah, right after I posted that, I saw your thread.

But there's a diffrence though, on your challenge if you find a Wingull you can use a Water OR a Flying type.

On mine you have to use the the Flying type if you found a Water Pokemon before it. And Vice Versa.

And correct me on this but on my challenge the next possible pokemon you find you MUST catch it. I don't think that's the case on yours ( I skimmed through the Thread, so I didnt quite catch it)

Yeah we are, one of the reasons I actually undertook it is because he added Honchkrow to the list. I'll update if I beat Falkner, which may or may not happen.
If the challenge somehow dies, well I have my own Nuzlocke spin-off idea, but I'm not going to wish that on the challenge. More people need to check it out though, the work he put into it is obvious.

I just wish there was an easier way to play 4th gen on an emulator. By easier, I mean something with a speed button. And a way to hack, in case I'm doing a challenge that calls for it. Basically, I want an emulator that functions just like the GBA but can run DS games.

I've never played Sinnoh passed the first few gyms. I think I quit with Fantima (sp?). At least my challenges will force me to finish, but idky, I prefer Isshu/Unova, Hoenn, Johto, and Kanto over Sinnoh. Something about it...

I have Sapphire myself. For monotype, I'd go with either Fire types, Dark types, Flying, Bug, or Normal if only to spite Sapphire for being so water biased.

I actually liked Hoenn, but the hugh amounts of Water and Water Pokemon was a big phat problem. If memory serves right, pretty much right after the sixth gym you had to travel by water. I do know about the Mr. Briney boat to Dewford and Slateport, but they're by boat, so I'm not counting that at the moment.

I have been thinking about going monotype Dark on Ruby, and I'm trying to think about what Pokemon it leaves me with. As far as I know, that would leave me with Mightyena, Shiftry, Sableye, Sharpedo, Cacturne and Crawdaunt. I'd even go with Normal, Poison, Steel or something else like Flying.

Irk? I like Hoenn, but all that water was irking, especially since I dun leik Mudkipz and always restart my games with either Torchic or Treecko and the water types I use and abuse are Pelipper, Azumarill, and Kyogre. With Dark, that's a balanced team right there. Faster to find than Fire (most of my challenge so far practically had me solo-ing throughout half to 3/4ths the games.)

Alternative
January 14th, 2011, 04:37 AM
Ahh Mudkip. I remember the days where I'd run through the game using only Mudkip, Tropius and Torkoal. I don't know why I only used those three, but they seemed cool to me. I wouldn't actually mind going for the Flying Monotype, as it'd give me some nice Pokemon: Swellow, Beautifly, Pelipper, Skarmory etc.

Which for some reason leads me onto an idea for another challenge. I have no idea what it could be called, but you'd choose a Pokemon, any Pokemon which will be your main/starter Pokemon (you can hack it in if you wish to). This Pokemon has to be dual type, and for the challenge you'd need to have either 3 or 5 Pokemon on your team. Your main Pokemon would branch out into other Pokemon for their types. Your branched out Pokemon would have to be uno typed for this challenge, but if impossible (flying types) you can void this rule.

If that doesn't make sense, let me explain it differently. Let's say your main Pokemon will be a Tentacool, which will eventually become a Water/Poison type. If you choose to have five Pokemon on your team, you have to choose two Pokemon for your team which branch out from Tentacruel's typing, so you would need two pure Water types and two pure Poison types, so all in all, your team could be this.

Alternative
January 14th, 2011, 05:01 AM
Almost. :D
The point of having either 3 or 5 Pokemon on the team is so you can have an even amount of Pokemon from that type. So if you were to choose Swellow, you'd have to choose two Normal and two Flying Pokemon.

Well obviously that's impossible to do if you're choosing flying types. How about to make it easier, the branch Pokemon's main type should be used, or the first type that appears in it's PokeDex entry, so if Swellow was one of your branch Pokemon you'd have to use it's Normal typing.

DP are slow. Platinum's speed was increased considerably. This is why I no longer touch my fake Pearl, which I dug up a few days ago, with its save and a ton of Pokemon on it : a) incredible slowness ; b) it's a pirate ; it won't play on a DSi ; c) ??? ; d) I'm afraid it will break and I'll lose all the stuff I trained from April until July 2009 (a small time window, but I basically ignored school and played Pokemon).

Mmyeah... I love Sinnoh as a region, but the games... just wait until Gen VI, when they'll remake Sinnoh... :D

And I play Ranger because I love the region design. And also for the Heatran. I won't bother beating Platinum and trading one over. It took me one week to beat Ranger. It will take me another year to finish my Favorite on Platinum. I seriously need to grind, since I'm in Veilstone and my Pokemon are like... Lv. 27 ? ._.'

Honestly, Sinnoh is a lot easier than HG/SS.
You can easily get a team of good Pokemon and rarely need any derps, and grinding is quite efficient.
Whereas, in HG/SS you have to spend hours and hours just to get your full team to Lv. 40, ie fodder for Lance's dragons.

Jak
January 16th, 2011, 11:17 AM
I find grinding in HGSS bearable...mainly cause I have a Pokemon following me. Seriously, once you have your Pokemon follow you, it's just hard to live up to that, imo. And it definitely makes it harder to go back to older games...that's just me though. I do hate that HGSS and GSC require beating Red before a challenge is done though. I mean, I understand why, but I just hate the Kanto part of both games. /horrible

649
January 16th, 2011, 11:52 AM
Agreed, HG/SS is basically the scum of challenges. It has nice features, nearly all pokemon available, that pokemon following feature, and the pokewalker, but it is the worst game to play a challenge on.

But what about the best game?
RBY? RSE? FRLG?

Jak
January 16th, 2011, 12:05 PM
HGSS is not the scum of challenges. >:c -kicks- I am not afraid to abuse powarz! lol <3

I find the worst for challenges to be RBY, since you're limited to just first generation Pokemon. And I can't trade SO...yeah. But for challenges you wanna zip through, it's the best, imo. RSE comes close behind, but I mean, I've played through those games so many times, of course I would say that. GSC and HGSS are the slowest, if the "you must defeat Red" clause in in place. I say DPPt challenges go by slowly too, but that's only because of the speed of the game. BW...I've only beaten White once, so I can't really say. It was pretty linear though. Hm.

myrrhman
January 16th, 2011, 12:29 PM
I agree that HGSS is the worst to play a challenge on. Having access to all the Pokemon is nice (and I didn't have a problem with his Dragonites) but there is too much grinding to be done for Red. I haven't beaten HGSS yet. My original playthrough, I beat the E4 the second time, but halfway through training for red, I gave up because it was so boring. Now I'm to the Kanto part (I think) of my Water Monotype.

Best game is RB fo sho. Sydian doesn't know what he's talking about at all. I know if I look at the challenge and say "would I rather do a _______ monotype on Blue or Ruby?" it will always be Blue. Sure you don't have access to as many Pokemon, but you don't need access to as many Pokemon. Plus the insane speeds it can run at.

I think my rankings goes: RB (I don't ever include yellow because it is just different, and I think in general challenges are easier on R/B and yellow is never in a different category) -> RSE ->GSC ->gap since the rest are so inferior ->DPPt ->FRLG ->HGSS.

I don't like FRLG at all. IMO they are much harder than RB even with access to more attacks and more Pokemon. Plus you have to do extra storyline, can't run it as fast, etc. If I am ever given "beat a challenge in Kanto" it will always be R/B, not YFRLG, and if I am ever given "beat a challenge in Johto" it will always be GSC, not HGSS. The only reason I am doing a HGSS challenge right now is that I'm not contempt with the Water UMC title, and am beating the rest of the games as well.

Tl;dr Red/Blue are god tier, RSE and GSC are good, the rest are awful.

I love every region, exept for Hoenn and Sinnoh. HG/SS is much more fun (imo). On HG/SS I can do challenges because I won't get bored, D/P/Pt I lose train of thought. You know how I Nuzlocke games, and be nuzlocking 3 games at a time, yeah I'm still on Platinum, I've been procrasinating it for 2 1/2 months now?

HG/SS I can do a Nuzlocke and add a bunch of rules (Only use 6 Pokemon at a time, after that no captures, Togepi must aways use Metronome when it doesn't have a SE move, ect.)

For me HG/SS > DPPt

Sure you don't have access to as many Pokemon, but you don't need access to as many Pokemon. Plus the insane speeds it can run at.

I never said it was the worst to use, and I do know what I'm talking about here. I used to do monotypes on RBY and RSE all the time. But for challenges where more options are needed, I would prefer not to use RBY, that's what I was saying. But I personally like to have the biggest variety of Pokemon available to me, but usually only applying to things like random challenges and the favorite challenge. But those games, for me, are the games I can breeze right through without being too distracted with grinding, since it's pretty simple and I usually capture Pokemon that aren't relatively close to each other.

I don't like FRLG at all. IMO they are much harder than RB even with access to more attacks and more Pokemon. Plus you have to do extra storyline, can't run it as fast, etc. If I am ever given "beat a challenge in Kanto" it will always be R/B, not YFRLG, and if I am ever given "beat a challenge in Johto" it will always be GSC, not HGSS. The only reason I am doing a HGSS challenge right now is that I'm not contempt with the Water UMC title, and am beating the rest of the games as well.

Oh God, don't get me started on FRLG. I couldn't complete a challenge on those games if my cat was dying. Just...horrible. Horrible games with horrible music. I can't even play through those games normally anymore.

My order is something like...

HGSS > RSE > RBY > GSC > DPPt > FRLG

Excluding BW since I've only beaten White once, of course. However, I'm thinking it won't rank too high because...I'm honestly not itching to beat it again. So I think it might fall behind RBY. Also, I've never done a challenge on GSC, so that show shows how bad I dislike DPPt and FRLG for...anything.

Also, I have had this big itch to play Gold or Crystal lately. But idk if I wanna do a challenge (since I tend to get neglectful) or just a normal playthrough. To be honest, I will probably forget about it no matter what I choose to do. @_@

You should do it. Do a Psychic Monotype or something (Catch an Abra and teach it all the punches and then you win). It only takes me like an hour and a half.

Speaking of challenges not taking a long time, do you think we could pull off something like:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pokemon Speed Challenge
In this challenge, you simply sign up saying what game you want to play, and then someone else signs up with the same game. You then go head to head in a race to see who can complete it fastest. Emulators are necessary, so that you can see how far each other are. In order to make sure there is no cheating going on, we ask that you (this is the only part I'm not sure on. What program should we tell people to have so they can see each others screens. I know skype can do it, but I don't know if you can do both screens at the same time. I've used teamviewer, but that also means they can mess with your computer if they want to. There also might be other programs out there, so what do you guys think).

Once you find someone to race, contact them via PM/VM and ask if they are ready to start. Once both parties are ready to start, go for it!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What do you guys think? If it gets the thumbs up, and gets popular enough, I was thinking we could even do a little tournament to see who the ultimate speed champion is!

I like the idea of the Speed Challenge, but I don't know if you would need to get two people to compete against each other at the same time. Maybe change it so if it's an update challenge you have to screenshot the save screen and include it within your update. Then keep a track on the fastest times from there.

Could swear speed challenge was alpha fan, or at least, it's similar. I have no objections to it, but I do agree it doesn't need to be a competition, unless it's some kind of event, and of course, it'd be all in good fun. I wouldn't participate though, as I take my time playing games, especially since I have an obsession with being overleveled for...everything.

myrrhman
January 16th, 2011, 06:11 PM
Yeah, it is sort of close to Alpha Fan. Meh, maybe this will catch on better. Instead of "ZOMG WE NEED THE REKURD!!!" its more of a friendly competition. Not nearly as much pressure, which is why Alpha Fan died mostly, I'm still working on it as hard as I can.

Lol, new thread title.

I would probably do that speed challenge, I could probably figure out how to use livestream, since my best friend does it a lot.

BTW, to add to the earlier generation talk, I'm wondering why it takes everyone so long to beat Red. I really don't have to grind that much at all. I went right in on my last Crystal challenge with only Charizard and Raichu, with barely any prior training, and KO'd everything easily. Same with my Crystal Username Challenge. ._.

Petilil
January 16th, 2011, 06:42 PM
Red isn't even that hard, in HGSS or GSC. The hardest thing about fighting him is that damn Snorlax, and even then, it's not as bad in HGSS without Rest + Sleep Talk (I think that's what it had). It just takes a long time to get to him with all the gyms and what not. I think that's the tedious part. Training though? I have beaten him with Pokemon that just got to level 50. Nothing fancy.

Alternative
January 16th, 2011, 06:44 PM
I think the main problem with Red is that people read and see his high level Pokemon and think "Oshi-" and think they need to train lots before battling him, when in reality, he thinks it's smart to keep using Thunderbolt on a ground-type Pokemon.

Red does seem to have strong Pokemon, but he's a total nub when it comes to battling fo' real.

Also I've been thinking of another challenge, but different from the normal challenge. A Battle Tower/Frontier Challenge! You wouldn't need to start your 4th gen games again for this either. Simply you run any Frontier place you like, although Tower is preferred, choose the Pokemon you wish to use for the entire time and see how far you can get using just those three Pokemon. To make it harder, you could have restrictions on Pokemon, like no certain Pokemon or even try doubles or even go in with a friend if you have Wifi.

myrrhman
January 16th, 2011, 08:58 PM
That would be really fun. I think I'd enjoy doing some doubles frontier stuff with someone.

What about this idea? I've broken it into steps.

1. Get a partner. Or you could do it by yourself, but with a partner is more fun.
2. Play through HGSS (or DPPt if you can do it on that game). Your partner does the same.
3. Find another team that signed up in the challenge.
4. Team battle them. Its different than battling in the wi-fi section of Pokecommunity, because for that you have teams meant for competitive battles (I think) and stuff. With this your team is set for challenges, so your movesets would be much suckier.

To elaborate on myrrhman's Speed Run idea, if you can find a friend to do it with at the same time, after every gym/important event the two people should have a Wifi battle with their current teams to see who is better at the time.

Also from reading Shiny Politoed's comic Nuzlocke run makes me want to do one now, and the comic made me lol so hard. I think my favourite line was this:
"Suicune makes me moist. I wanna see it dglkjfslfa. SUICUNE! *creepy face lick*"

The only problem there would be that if people aren't in the same place at the same time, then one has to wait for the other. Also it makes you save, so there would be no way to make sure your time doesn't rack up while you're battling.

You could always pick someone that's on par with your speed at completing challenges. Also, the wait wouldn't have to be as long. I know it's hard to find a person that's exactly your speed, but as long as you get someone close enough, it should be alright.

Just make every Pokemon have 31 IVs and 0 EVs?
That'll work fine, unless you have Hidden Power on your moveset. If so you have to show on which Pokemon it does SE damage so we have proof it's the right Hidden Power Type.

We can also take screenshots of the PO battle with PrtScr (Print Screen) so that's good.

So, I've been thinking of better nicknames, as current ones sound pretty suckish. So... who wants to be named after a Pokemon...? I suppose no one since those requests usually get ignored

Combusken (Blaziken) - 560cool (yeah I name Pokemon after myself shut up)
Swellow -
Dratini - Sorry, my Dratini was in HG. I can't change the suckish nickname (Blues).
Manectric -
Aerodactyl -
Exeggcute -

Just... pick a Pokemon. And I'll go change his nickname.
I call the Swellow. I almost picked the Manectric, though.

Does that mean I get to go with Manectric? That's fine with me. :D If I get to choose the nickname, go with either 'Alterna' for a kitchen girl and 'Alternoob' for a boy.

Yeah, I quickly skimmed the list of exclusive Pokemon for each generation, and I don't see anything special as far as differences go. So, I think I might as well get both of them.

I'm 20 so muahahaha i'm like 6 years older than you two hi.

Also, I'd prefer if the Aerodactyl was just Myrrh instead of Myrrhman. Mainly because its not a man.
