I went to the RP corner once, and I didn't like it at all. There's so many tl;dr posts there. I might give it a go again if I don't have to write essays all the time. As for minecraft, as soon as I get a better graphics card, I'll play it more. :) And challenges, are postponed for now, but I'll most likely be taking up my Solo and Nuzlocke again when I start taking them again. Body can wait it's turn. :P

Happy Birthday to the challenges area, One of the best places on PC :)

Thanks, person that randomly posts a challenge idea and disappears from here for about two months! lol

Masuda method and speech class are distracting me. The only PC challenge I'm doing is my favorite challenge, and even then it's boring me, cause I just don't wanna grind. Curse me for having weak favorites. D; That in mind though 560, you don't have to finish your favorite challenge, since that's on Platinum. The favorite challenge is BW only now. :x

Just 4 more daaaaaays. Then I can do challenges all day! lol
I feel kind of accomplished today. Did quite a few solos this weekend. I'm up to 25/151 now. :D That, and I decided to try my hand at doing all of the Ultimate Monotype Challenges too. Needless to say, I'm going to be quite busy during the summer, challenge-wise.

Might make this real. It's just another Nuzlocke. Documenting this here.
Set the battle mode on Set (you cannot switch after you defeat an enemy).
Do not capture any Pokemon if you do not have an empty slot in your team.
Defeat all legendaries. That's right. Defeat them.
Capture only one Pokemon per route / area. This Pokemon must be the first one encountered, even if you already have it. If you fail to capture it, you cannot capture anymore Pokemon in that area.
Nickname all captured Pokemon.
No deleting HMs. Ever.
Do not use items other than X-items and assorted Poke Balls. Heal Balls are okay.
To heal, you must use the Pokemon Center. Follow these steps:
Before healing, count the number of injured Pokemon (Pokemon that are not at max HP, even if it's just 1 damage; Pokemon that have a harmful status).
Purchase items from the PokeMart equal to the number of injured Pokemon:
0 Badges: Free
1 Badge: Buy Potions
3 Badges: Buy Super Potions
5 Badges: Buy Hyper Potions
7 Badges: Buy Max Potions
8 Badges: Buy Full Restores
Do not under any circumstances use these potions.
If you don't have enough money, suck it up and get some.
Do not ever use a Nurse / Doctor NPC to heal more than once. Do not use the optional lodgings.
Only box a Pokemon that is fully healed. If it isn't, then consider it dead. Release it. If healing is too expensive, you can kill off your Pokemon to cheapen the cost for the rest of your party.
If a Pokemon faints, it dies. Release it.
All Pokemon faint? Game over. Restart.

Me?

It's a Nuzlocke so it follows similar rules to all other Nuzlockes. I just put down which extra rules I wanted to have. You're supposed to do them all at once.

it's not really a different challenge than Nuzlocke,just a xtremer version

No one said it was any different to a Nuzlocke challenge. All he said was that those are the rules he wanted to follow, with the main, and optional rules, which I think is a good reference for when he decides to take it in the future.

Although when I started my Nuzlocke, I read one of the rules as you're only allowed to catch one Pokemon in every area, not the first one you see. Since that's what the rule said in the thread, I'm sticking to it.

@jespoke: Gratz on your grade. I'm from Denmark as well so I know the grades ;)

On an other note I'm getting tired of people not updating in the Scambled challenge :tired: since I don't want to double post to tell that I finished it.

Hiya guys, finally back! School's over, I'm working now, but I still have some free time.
And, I'm back with a purpose for a new challenge!

The Underestimate's Challenge

This challenge gives you the possibility to use Pokèmon that are underestimated, to say, Dunsparce, Shuckle, and similar. Obviously you can use your common sense to choose the ones to use, just avoid using things like Charizard, Mewtwo and others.
Maybe I'll provide a list made by myself of all the Pokèmon to choose, then it's your choice (if you like), or you can still have an inspiration from that, and then add some personal choices, out of the list.
So here are the rules!

1. You can use only Pokèmon that are, like the title says, underestimated. (List under the rules, if it will be)
2. Obviously, no Legendaries. You can still catch them, if you like.
3. Hacking is allowed before you get your second Gym Badge.
4. Egg trading is allowed.
5. HM Slaves are also allowed.
6. You defeat the game according the following conditions:
- R/B/Y/G/S/C/Ru/Sa/E/D/P/B/W: Defeat the Pokèmon League champion.
- FR/LG/Pt: Defeat the Pokèmon League champion twice.
- HG/SS: Defeat the Pokèmon League champion twice, and also Red.
- Colosseum/XD: Finish the main story (Someone help me with this, just to point the
finishing line).

What do you say?

Sydian
June 10th, 2011, 12:39 PM
Sounds good to me. I might try it...lmao my lazy arse might try it. Like that means anything. :(

- Colosseum/XD: Finish the main story (Someone help me with this, just to point the
finishing line).

So for Colosseum...you can use...practically anything! -shot-

It seems like a nice challenge, but you'd probably need to compile a list of all the Pokemon which are considered underestimated, since people could go by like, NU standards in competitive battling, which is where Pokemon like Charizard and Exeggutor are.

Actually, Exeggutor is UU, but whatever. A list is needed, and people can suggest ones that aren't there, so you can add more as needed.

any ideas how to beat red on ss doing a solo with heracross lances lv48 charizard is ridiculasly hard to beat since im using a power bracer it out speeds me and air slash almost always a crit. hit and amkes me flinch how the hell am i going to beat red any ideas

yes im going to unequipt his item before the battle despite that he will probably still be lower

i still have a few gym badges to go(4) and heracross is level 87
what move set should i use
thinking of
brick break
aerial ace
stone edge(to replace its current mega horn)
either shadow claw or earthquake

oh yeah can you use other pokemon to switch out and heal as long as they dont attack

Well, using slaves to heal is fine, although I try not to do that. Against Red, though it might be needed.

Also, keep Megahorn (its more powerful than Aerial Ace even when resisted), replace Aerial Ace with Stone Edge/Rock Slide (Rock Slide will OHKO Charizard, so it's the better option against Red with it's higher accuracy and PP), and EQ is decent (no Shadow Claw for Red, but you can use it in the interim for ghosts), but Swords Dance is a great move there too, as EQ isn't really needed for coverage, and it will let you sweep Red without worrying about not OHKOing anybody as long as you outspeed them. Also, Close Combat should be in your final moveset, BB is good for now b/c of PP issues.

I assume you are in Kanto already, so I dunno why you are fighting Lance again...use the power bracer on low level Pokemon, although you should have max EVs by now.

as for an item, I would equip Leftovers against Red to counteract the Hail so you don't die from it.

I'm soloing R/B/Y with all of the original 151 Pokemon. I already did the legends, it's just the Pokemon that don't evolve that make it a little more...bleh. There's no everstone for them to hold (you can't even hold items in those games anyway), so I have to be super careful with the B button when I'm trying to grind.
Yeah...that and redundancy is terrible. I did one solo yesterday (Vulpix) and afterwards, I felt like I didn't want to play that game for a very long time...and my goal is to complete them all by the end of the summer break.

Oh hey, I'm back after a month or so...

Many things have been going on, including but not limited to:

Me getting a job
Me going on vacation to Charelston
My girlfriend getting a super awesome job, where she basically gets to travel the US and get free travel, meals, and hotels. And she gets paid to watch little kids while their parents are at conventions. ON TOP OF THAT she gets to take someone with her (wouldn't want employees to get lonely, would we) so I'm with her going to Alaska and Hawaii and places. Not gonna lie, its pretty awesome.
My trivia team getting invited to the trivia championships and getting 3rd place (worth $500 split 4 ways).
A friend and I getting every single artifact on Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles. That's a whole bunch of grinding. At the end, we were getting like one artifact every two hours of gameplay. It was ridiculous.
Probably other stuff that I can't remember.

So, as you can see, I've had a pretty full summer so far. But, hopefully I'll be able to get back to my Pokemon playing. I've started working on an old fashioned Catch 'em All challenge for Blue. I have at least the basic form of every obtainable Pokemon in the game, now I have to play through Red a few times to get Blastoise/Charizard, Vaporeon/Flareon, and the Version Exclusives. Then I just have to grind grind grind and I'll be done!

I sort of wish I wasn't doing much. I really wanted to just chill and play video games most of the summer, probably with my best friend (the one who beat FF:CC with me), but no. Maybe the second half of my summer will be less busy than the first half.

Well a "catch all 646" Pokemon would be weird, since that's just completing the Pokedex, which is pretty much the end aim of the game anyway, so I don't see a point in making it a seperate challenge. Feel free to make it a personal challenge if you want to. :]

I guess this is the best place to do this. I'm going to attempt to start back up Alpha Fan now that I'm back to PC. Anyone interested? I think the best idea is to have like 4-6 people working on it, and keeping in communication via skype or AIM or something. Its too much of a bother to PM all 5 people every time one person finds something out. Plus, with AIM or skype, we can have set times where we all meet up and talk about stuff. Sooooo, anyone interested?

659? THERE ARE NEW POKEMON ALREADY?! lmao But yeah, like Alt said, that could be more of a personal challenge. The thing with huge challenges like that is just, the updating would be difficult to contain in a thread. Suits more for your PC blog, or Tumblr.

I don't wanna keep on hackin btw...

And all this summer talk lol. I wish I was having a summer. I have speech this month, math next, band camp in August, then starting fall semester with 14 hours. Like...Lord save me. I don't know how I can fit a job in there, but I need one desperately. Y'all hiring?

Oh. Also. I've hatched over 1000 Petilil and still no shiny. However, I have saved all the Modest and Timid Petilil with Own Tempo. If anyone would like one, I'd be happy to trade'em. That's why I saved them, lol.

Myrrh, this is an intervention. You need to move on from the outdated AIM and indulge yourself in a world of amazing by downloading and using MSN. Syd, myself and most of the other challengers use MSN, so it's sort of a necessary communication tool if we want to have a great challenge event for GT8.

But I was talking to Myrrh...lol It's not a necessity. Depends on who all wants to participate and then you could relay that to whatever you wanna use (AIM, Skype, etc). I personally won't be trying to do Alpha Fan, because my play style goes against...every aspect of trying to beat the game that quick, tbh.

If your Skype and MSN don't work though, you're missing out on a world of experiences. lol Most people use one or both, myself included. It's kind of like how everyone moved on to Facebook. It's like you're still using the MySpace of instant messaging. Might as well uninstall your MSN and Skype and then reinstall them tbh.

@Syd: But, but, I love my AIM! I know how to navigate it so well and we've grown up together! I don't wanna move on!

In all seriousness, though, I'd be perfectly fine with getting a MSN. I think I might have one maybe at some point, I could probably remember the username and password since I only have like 3 usernames and 3 passwords ever. Honestly, its whatever the most people want.

So, RHI, jespoke, jd, chaos, what do you guys think? What do you guys use the most?

I think that msn might be better for all involved, as I use Skype with my real identity, and not a anonymous one. I actually wouldn't have a problem using skype for this, but others might :|

Anyway, my skype is broken right now, so msn would be the way to go for me right now anyway, lol.

also Myrrhman, I have aim as well, since I started using the internet with AOL way back when dinos roamed the earth I was a kid with my parents - my mom still uses AOL! (not AOL online, the actual program, with the browser and everything!) However, I haven't used it since the open browsers started coming on strong.

I really don't see much difference between one IM service and the other (besides Skype, which is a whole other animal), but more people have msn then something like aim, so...

And I guess I'm a member of Alpha Fan now.

Nothing wrong with having both. I actually have both. Hell, I have two AIMs (one was made to trick a friend though, actually lol). I just didn't have as many people on AIM, and I got MSN first, and I didn't like the lack of customization with AIM. Everything about it just felt...old. Only people I know irl seem to use it. idk what that's about. But yeah, I just never use AIM anymore, because more people have MSN, and I just generally like it better.

no speeding, no cheating, and in-game time is the benchmark. Ofc, I am (somewhat) guessing here. Myrrh is the guy who formed the project, so he would know better.

Actually, I wasn't the person that originally formed Project Alpha Fan. ChrisTom was, although I did become one of the probable two main guys for this one, and the only one that tried to revive it and stuff.

But jd is right. Guinness: VG goes by in game times for speed runs, and you aren't allowed to use any cheating/hacking/speeding devices. I think that using an emulator is possibly all right still, but using the actual cartridge would be much easier honestly. We can still do practice runs on the emulators and stuff, and when we're ready for the final showing, we can just have one person use the actual cartridge. I'm sure one of us will have it. I'm actually pretty sure that one of my friends has a copy of Red that I can borrow.

My thinking is that we start with Blue, get really good with the process of doing Alpha Fan, and then once we for sure know what we're doing, we move on to other generations. I think we all agree that 1st Generation would be the easiest to do (no natures, no running shoes/Mach Bike, etc.)

Ever since I heard of what a HM Slave is from challenges, and starting D/P/Pt, I haven't been able to use six Pokemon ever since, unless it's for training, and a certain challenge harnesses that idea. I just think the concept of a HM Slave/Bibarel is brilliant and a hard concept to let go of.

I have to have a full team of six, challenge or not, unless the challenge I'm doing prohibits it. I'm perfectly fine with training a full team of six though, and I like having a lot of diversity.

My OCD pretty much prevents me from doing monotypes or Nuzlocke and heading into the league without 6 Pokemon. Even if I know I will destroy the E4, it's nice to have an insurance policy or two, in case the team's starts fall due to crits.

I can has challenge idea?

Its a species challenge. I've always wanted to suggest one, but I could never figure out how to do it, but here's how: You choose a Pokemon that you want to use, say Emboar, the Mega Fire Pig Pokemon, then choose one word from it's species title (either Mega, Fire, or Pig). Copy and paste this url into your browser: {http://veekun.com/dex/pokemon/search?species=} and type in the word you chose after the '=', then hit enter. Let's say you chose Pig. Type this in to your browser: {http://veekun.com/dex/pokemon/search?species=Pig}. A list of Pokemon will show up who's species contains 'Pig' in it. So for the example you could use the Tepig line, the Mankey line, Pidove -> Tranquill, and Swinub. Rinse and repeat with any word you choose.

myrrhman
June 27th, 2011, 07:06 AM
That idea sounds pretty good actually. I'd probably try it out. So Pidove would be allowed for pig, because the word Pig is part of Pigeon? Then what's preventing people from choosing the word a and getting tons of Pokemon to choose from?

Laure's Most Genius Challenge Idea ever:

The Pokemon game you play you may play no more than 2 hours a day. As soon as you can get Pokeballs you must have 4 or more Pokemon in your team. Play the game as normal obeying the time limit. You may not use an emulator speed option.

Play the game normal.... Until this very important catch.

You see Sydian over there? No seriously look at him. I'm saying him even though it took me two months to figure out his a guy. Well he plays an important part in this challenge cause I say everytime he changes his avatar your whole team is scrapped and you must get another 4.

I think the rules in the Monotype thread need to be changed. Namely: "You must have at least two Pokemon on your team", and "You can't be doing two monotypes with one run of the game". That's a duo type that you're doing, not a monotype.

Laure's Most Genius Challenge Idea ever:

The Pokemon game you play you may play no more than 2 hours a day. As soon as you can get Pokeballs you must have 4 or more Pokemon in your team. Play the game as normal obeying the time limit. You may not use an emulator speed option.

Play the game normal.... Until this very important catch.

You see Sydian over there? No seriously look at him. I'm saying him even though it took me two months to figure out his a guy. Well he plays an important part in this challenge cause I say everytime he changes his avatar your whole team is scrapped and you must get another 4.

Hardest. Challenge. Ever.

Especially since he changes his avatar 3 times a day.

Syd, can that please be approved? XD best challenge ever

I had an idea (Don't know if it's already been done)
What about you start the game and you can only use pokemon with the same nature as your starter.
If you catch a pokemon and it doesn't have the same nature you must release it and you can no longer use a pokemon of that species.
I'm gonna try it anyway just for kicks.

Considering there's 20 different natures, and the chances of getting one with the right nature are slim, it'd be tough. Plus people could just SR for a Ralts of the same nature and abuse synchronize. ^_^

As for the other challenge for playing 2 hours a day, do you mean game time, or real time? If it's the latter it wouldn't be too hard, or for me at least. I only really play challenges 10-15 minutes at a time. :P

I'm pretty sure drink driving is worse. It's easy to grind Pokemon and drive. :P One time I had to go with Mum to work so I started a new game on Ruby or Sapphire and got four badges by the time she was done. I think by the end I had a Swampert and a Torkoal, since that was my phase of using a totally awesome Grass-Fire-Water core team. It was only a Swampert, Torkoal and Tropius, but I loved it anyway. <3

So there has been some distressing news with me though. I've had to delete everything off my computer because of a dumb virus which affected my name, so I pretty much deleted my entire profile on the computer, which means I've lost everything, including my challenges run on Emulators, namely my Nuzlocke and Body. I've still got my Solo challenge on a cartridge, so I'm gonna try and get that done as well soon. :D I'm also gonna wait for a new computer before I do any more challenges on an emulator.

Which I probably should mention, I've been itching to start Soulsilver again for a challenge, any ideas on which one I should partake in? :)

How about a challenge where you can only catch one Pokemon per encounter method? So like, grass, caves, surfing, fishing, shaking spots, swirling dust etc. You can only use one Pokemon through each method. I think that'd be pretty fun. :D

I would be clear on the rules though, like your starter would count as a gift Pokemon, whereas egg would also count as a gift, if it's the Togepi egg or Happiny or whatever. :3

That would actually be quite difficult to pull off, since not everyone uses the actual cartridges to do challenges, and not everyone has wifi either. I mean I do, but you have to think about everyone else, not just yourself. :)

Actually, now that I think about it, I remember a challenge back maybe in 2009 or something for Emerald I think, where people would play one cartridge and pass it around to every person to do certain parts. In this example though one person would start a game, and you would have so many people and they would go through every section. So maybe one person could go from the beginning to get the badge in Rustboro City, and they would hand over the file so they can play the game until they get the Dewford badge. You could make it a Nuzlocke or anything like that. :3

I tried to make something like that. Here's how it worked.

Actually, it was almost exactly the same as the Challenge Royale that we're doing. But there were no teams, it was sort of like competitive battling i think (I've never done that). You just sort of say "hey you, lets race" and then you race and then everyone is happy but the loser because he lost and isn't happy.

I really can't be bothered doing any huge challenges like that right now tbh. I gotta find everything, and then get an emulator and get the proper games etc to use and I can do a challenge. :)

But as you know me, I came up with another challenge, again. I would call it the Ability Precipice/Threshold/Uhh... Brink challenge. Pretty much you choose however many abilities as you want in the game and you have to use Pokemon which fit the description of those abilities, so they don't have to necessarily have the abilities themselves. For instance, you could use the Sturdy, which would be that your Pokemon must be able to learn 2 One-hit KO moves via level and must know at least one of them. Or something like Illuminate would be that you have to use a Pokemon which can learn Flash.

but the perfect, but yet, simple, challenge for Alternative to partake in:

Rainbow Road ~ Contributed by Alternative
Monocolor is always fun, but how about a nice array? Only catch is one per color and in order.

Rules: In this challenge you must have a team of 6 Pokemon, and each 1 must be a different color to represent all 6 colors of the rainbow. (Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). The must also be caught in order. You must have your red Pokemon by the 2nd gym, (if your starter isn't red you may use it for help up to the 2nd gym. Even if it meets the future color criteria you may not use it again as it isn't a catchable Pokemon). You must have 3 pokemon by the 4th badge, and 6 by the 7th. NFEs are allowed, and no legends. ALSO all 6 pokemon on your team must be caught with a different pokeball, so no 2 pokemon on your team can live in the same ball (unless you're playing R/B/Y or FR/LG for you may use 2 pokeballs, 2 great balls, 1 ultra ball, 1 masterball).

Doesn't that one sound familiar? It's your child and it's saying

well that's way pout of proportion of what I meant of how you should play the challenge. When I said in order I meant you have to catch it in order of when you started. FOr instace, if you stat with blue, then you have to catch a Purple, the a Red, orange and so on. :)

*watches the Earth die as she sips on her coffee remembering the last time she said she'd edit something in that thread it took a week*

Anyway I feel a fool, I had the idea for a point based challenge before I knew what royal was ;_;
and Idk I don't like the race thing because for people like me one day I'll have all the time in the world to play Pokemon, and then next thing I know many days go by

Here is an idea, a whole group plays against one another
they can play no more than 1 hour a day on their game
no speed button
to ensure no one is just racing to the elite 4 points will be given
like maybe +1 for every Pokemon added to your Pokedex +5 for every item you receive from talking to people or something like that

and then what you can do with your points is go to the Laure store where you can buy various items like items that force an opponent of your choosing to release a Pokemon that was a part of their team, seal a Pokemon's move or evolution. I guess there could also be revival items for yourself, you could also make allies or enemies by being able to help someone out by giving them spare points, in hopes they don't screw you over later

Idk I keep trying to come up with a challenge version of a PO tournament I use to host that we named after the Hunger Games. Every arena day two tributes are picked to battle each other they win points they lose points, give points to their friends, use items to help/hurt each other, and every arena day I roll the dice and if I got a 6 the person with the lowest number wasn't allowed to play anymore :D

Something close to the idea has been thought of before. Not much came of it, but I still have it saved in a folder on my lappy. Its actually a combination of two ideas. One was the "Stock Market League" where you play, and every day or so the OP posts in a thread saying "Anyone who has a Grass Type gets a point" or something similar to that. The other challenge is hard to explain, but it was to take over a long period of time, and the goal was to get to like 10,000 points to "buy arceus". Every trainer you beat and every item you sold netted you some money. Every Pokemon you evolved, every item you bought, every time you lost, or if you wanted to "buy" a Pokemon, that lost you money. Once you beat the game, you wouldn't be able to afford Arceus from the start, so you would have to buy a weaker Pokemon and start the game over with that Pokemon. Make sense?

I am really interested in making a challenge so I came up with an idea that I don't have a name for yet.

What you have to do is, for each gym, you have to only have one pokemon and that pokemon is weak to the gym leaders pokemon.

For instance, on Brock because he's rock, you have to use ONE of the following:
A fire-type pokemon (Maybe your starter)
An ice-type pokemon (sneasel)
A flying type pokemon (pidgey)
A bug type pokemon (caterpie)

(those arent the ones you have to use, just examples)
On the first gym you are allowed to level your pokemon to level 15 then you have to go straight to the first gym.

I am currently thinking of other level caps but I would like to make this challenging but not impossible.

On the elite four you have to use JUST the one pokemon that is weak to the trainer and if you die on that trainer you have to reset until you defeat them.

On the champion you can use all of your pokemon.


Do you guys understand what I am trying to explain about how my challenge would work? Feedback would be appreciated

I think what he meant was that Brock is the Rock type gym leader so you'd have to use Pokemon specifically weak to that gym. Also with that being said, people like Volkner in Diamond and Pearl only had what, two electric types, so by that logic, you wouldn't be able to use a grass or fighting type, since they're good against his Octillery and Ambipom.

Anyway, i was wonderinf if I could get some help with my Ability list. You see, it's a challenge I'm preparing for this place, and you have to choose abilities and use Pokemon based off those abilities. So if you chose Analytic, you would have to use a Pokemon which could learn Mind Reader, or if you chose Colour Change, you'd have to use a Pokemon which has a different form, such as Castform, or Cherrim. :) I can't be bothered going through all 164 abilities (I counted), so if anyone you like to help me, I'd be grateful. ^_^

I did the 90's cartoon show word search for vaporeon's get together thing, and it hurt to do. Most of them were cartoon network, but still. RIP good tv shows.

Also, it just hit me that this is like the first time I've visited here in like a week. I sort of forgot there were things that weren't the gettogether...

I have an idea! (inb4saidabilliontimesbeforeme)

A...elemental challenge...like pokemon related to helium which would be drifblim, and uh...yeah thats a bad idea unless someone else can further it

What about a cartridge color challenge? i mean like say Ruby is red so you can only use red pokemon! (so no torchick its orange)

So in leafgreen, only green pokemon, sapphire blue, and so on.

What you think?

Sydian
July 25th, 2011, 12:47 PM
That'd just be monocolor challenge with an optional rule. We had that a while back, but I think it died. Haven't seen it in a while. So if you wanna make it, that's fine, but might as well make it the monocolor challenge and have that as an additional challenge, if the challenger wants to do it that way.

a lot of ideas for challenges are allready done, so there isn't much left for the scrappers to just come up with a random idea :o

Hm...how about a challenge where ( i guess hacks allowed )

you use a pokemon in gen 1, so you have to solo it

THan gen 2, you use the pokemon in gen 2, with the pokemon in gen 1

Than gen 3, you use the gen 1 pokemon, a gen 2 pokemon, and the gen 3 pokemon

than so on untill Black/WHite you have a team of 5!

Wait that would be really hard without hacking and um...yeah...unless someone could trade you the pokemon (the OP)

oh and by gen i mean region, so you can go like...

Red, Soul Silver, Sapphire, Diamond, Black or something!

:D but theres no way i could host it, so i post the idea here ofc

A possible name could be the "ultimate team challenge"

Yeah that was actually a part of the ultimate challenge in the monotype challenge, also for the helium element thing there is almost something similar to it located in the Dream Themes thread known as species, but the element thing could be cool and Dream Themes would be a good place to brain storm it and flush it out

Also Torchic isn't orange
because there is no orange dex color on bulbapedia
and this bugs me because I have the rainbow road challenge
but yet there is no orange

It's kind of meh it just doesn't seem very original and exciting. There is already the one in each challenge where various gens are being played and by the time you get to 5th gen it's pretty much just a favorites challenge it seems like

I am beginning to find out other than your usual (monotype, solo, etc.) the best tourneys have more limits on team usage this is too much of what i'd call a "free roam"


anyway,
I started a new challenge, not that I needed one, if you enjoyed the battle royale or wanted to join it check out Table Top Supreme. It's a point based / race challenge.

Tabletop looks super awesome, Laure!

In other news, I be doing a personal challenge that I challenge you all to. Its the Ultimate Catch 'em All challenge. Basically, you start on RBY, and you catch all 151 Pokemon. Mew is obtainable, so he counts. I'd do it on an emulator so you can have access to speed button. Also, you can use TGB dual so that you can trade, because you have to have all 151, so you'll have to play both red and blue to get all the starters and version exclusives and whatnot. Once you complete this, you move on to GSC, and catch all 250 Pokemon on one of those games. Celebi is excluded since you can't get it. Etc etc until you've beaten BW (I'm probably going to stop after DPPt, maybe after the third gen since I have a Diamond cartridge that has all the Pokemon on it...

Actually, you can get celebi with the celebi egg glitch (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Celebi_egg_glitch), but it is really rime consuming, so I wouldn't worry about it, lol.

I was actually thinking about doing this. I think the most filled Pokedex I've had was in Blue with like 120, but I didn't have Red so I couldn't finish it. I used infinite RCs to level up pokes to evolve them, lol.

But yeah, everything except for event pokemon sounds fun.

I think I might have thought of a new challenge (although I'm not sure that it hasn't been mentioned before). After looking at the Anime Challenge, I thought of the Character Challenge. Basically, you take a character from any show/anime/whatever, your choice, and use Pokemon that you think that character would use. No legendaries, of course. I'll set it up immediately if anyone else find it to be a good idea.

I think what makes a challenge is the more limits that you put on things. Like, for example, the video game character challenge, I'm not a fan of because it is just up for too much interpretation. Like I could be like 'Oh it's Link his green I can have any green Pokemon"

Maybe you could give people extra added challenges like I said I'm going to use Woobat for Edward from Twilight (which would make sense since Edward can read minds and Woobat is psychic..... I see you judging me over there stop it) be like, okay his a vampire so he has to have leech life and if you are playing your game while daylight is out (GSC and BW ) you can't even have him in your party unless your in a cave or something.

Lol when I found red and blue at a rummage sale (and they both saved) I thought about doing this >: then I found out I had a gba link cable and not a regular gameboy so I was like meh, f the hard copies, and I sold them on Ebay since I could just do roms. I might do this if the table top challenge doesn't force me to hate 1st.

Put on my thinking cap, and thought of a new challenge.

Basically, you go here (http://www.random.org/), to a random number generator. Pick a region, let's say, Kanto. Episodes 1-118. You get a random number, check the episode on Serebii or Bulbapedia, and use one wild pokemon in your episode on the team. You basically do it six times and get six pokemon.

Not sure about it, yet, just wanted some thoughts.

That sounds awfully familiar to the Random Pokemon Challenge. In the Random Challenge, you signed up with saying what game and how many Pokemon you'd be using, and then the OP went to a random Pokemon Generator, and generated however many Pokemon you wanted that are catchable in your game.

Sire
July 29th, 2011, 04:38 PM
It's similar, yes. I'll probably forget about it, anyways.

Thought of one where your team consists of three pokemon that are all super effective against another, like Water Fire Grass.

Gulpin
July 30th, 2011, 06:37 PM
For some reason, I've been distracted from my challenges for a while. So what I did was make a fancy list of all of my games, and the challenges that I am currently doing on them. Before I start a new challenge, I'm going to try to complete all of my current ones that I haven't finished yet. I just got finished with my Walrein solo run on Platinum, which I left sitting after getting 6 badges. Now, to decide what to do next: Swellow / Guardevoir dual-species on Ruby (8 badges), regular run on Sapphire (8 badges), a regular run on Emerald (7 badges), or Flygon solo on Diamond (7 badges). I think I'll continue with the Sinnoh region since I should be able to get through the story pretty quickly after just completing Platinum, then try to work on the R/S/E runs at the same time.

That doesn't sound all that challenging, you'd end up with a strong balanced team with good type coverage in the end anyway.

Yeah, gotta think outside the box here. Like a challenge where you have to learn every new move a Pokemon attempts to learn, getting rid of the oldest move it has when a new one comes along. Which...we totally don't have that, I don't think. We have the opposite though, with that perfect memory challenge. Hi guys I need to sleep.

I just thought of a variation of that where every time you get a new TM, you have to immediately teach it to one of your pokemon. (HM slaves and such don't count.)

Sire
July 31st, 2011, 05:08 PM
The TM one would be hard because what if none of your pokemon could learn the TM? You basically lose the challenge.

Thought of one where you get a certain number of moves and each pokemon on your team has to know one move. I like fun challenges more then hard challenges. x_x

August 20th, 2011, 04:09 AM
Nuzlockes are super fun to play, and you have all those hardships with those Pokemon. Just a tip though, if you choose to ever do one for the third generation, especially Emerald, it's highly advised that you skip Brawly, or at least train to a super high level before fighting him. :)

myrrhman
August 21st, 2011, 07:49 AM
I completely agree. I don't think I've ever done Brawly on time in any Pokemon game, other than when I'm doing normal playthroughs and have both Ralts and Wingull at fairly high levels. OR if I have a Sableye. Sableye can stop Brawly.

Alternative
August 21st, 2011, 09:04 AM
I'm pretty sure if you've got a Beautifly you can do well against Brawly. Considering your main moves are going to be Gust and Confusion, both strong against him, that Makuhita can't do much unless he's got 3+ Bulk Ups under his belt because of the 4x resistance against the fighting moves, you can do well with one.

But yet again, you have to be lucky enough to find a Wurmple first in the routes you can find them in and make it evolve into a Beautifly. I got two my first time and both times got Dustox from them. :(

mondays suck
August 21st, 2011, 09:26 AM
There's nothing wrong with getting Dustox, with its Bug/Poison typing it, too, has a 4x F. resistance and, unlike Beautifly who only gets the phys. Gust and a couple Grass moves, it does actually learn Confusion. Plus its defense-orientated stats are preferable in a Nuzlocke imo.

Few challenge ideas could be:

1. Use only Pokemon which has the Pick Up ability (or try to play R/S/E with only zangooses)
2. It has been said before but do a Weak Pokemon Run where you may only use Pokemon which has base stats under 300. (can be 400 for easy, 350 for normal and 300 for hard)
3. Metronome challenge where you can have Pokemon that can learn metronome and use only that move.
4. Ability Challenge, where you hack your pokemon so that it has abilities which HINDERS your Pokemon (like Slow Start, Klutz, maybe even Run Away, ect.)
5. Normal Moves Challenge: Where your Pokemon can only have Normal moves on them and nothing else at all times. That makes it hard if you fight Ghost Pokemons.
6. Ditto Only Run
7. Baby Pokemon Only Run

2. It has been said before but do a Weak Pokemon Run where you may only use Pokemon which has base stats under 300. (can be 400 for easy, 350 for normal and 300 for hard)

I see a future on this one


3. Metronome challenge where you can have Pokemon that can learn metronome and use only that move.


Again,too few an option


4. Ability Challenge, where you hack your pokemon so that it has abilities which HINDERS your Pokemon (like Slow Start, Klutz, maybe even Run Away, ect.)


Well,might work but it's hard to fight ability changing codes(except for Wonder Guard),and not practical,people with consoles can't play and can't be used on Pre-Gen II games.


5. Normal Moves Challenge: Where your Pokemon can only have Normal moves on them and nothing else at all times. That makes it hard if you fight Ghost Pokemons.


Not hard,impossible.Unless you have Metronome you don't stand a chance to fight Ghosts.


6. Ditto Only Run

AKA Solo Run,we have a thread for that

7. Baby Pokemon Only Run

Heh,most of their movesets is crappy,too hard not much options.

If you think Syd will approve any of these though ...
Good Luck

My friend is testing out a challenge I thought of. It has to be done on emulator though... You get a Random Number Generator, and generate a random Pokemon, random types, and random moves. Then you hack that in the beginning of the game and solo with it. It can get really tough if you get very few moves that do damage/moves that have few pp/moves that are weak like bubble.

I has idea for teh Challenge, but I not is to able do.

Challenge: Beat a game with only Snorlax; any amount of Snorlax is fine

Restrictions: SNORLAX ONLY, and (I think) Snorlax can learn all HMs. If there is any HM Snorlax cannot use, you may have ONE HM SLAVE. I think Snorlax can't use Flash, Dive, and Waterfall, so get a Lanturne or Chinchou.

To derr poster:
Credit me, and remember to put in the OP, "Always Remember to Pack a Snorlax". I would love to have a userbar for this, as it would be funny!

Purpose: 4 teh lulz. Alternatively, Snorlax are lazy, seemingly worthless gluttons. However, when they go into battle, they're like Slaking without Truant! They're extremely useful, and besides, who hasn't wanted to ride the Sea on Snorlax's stomach? Always remember to pack a Snorlax.

That'd basically be a solo challenge with exception of no species clause

It's probably been done loads of time cause there are crazy people on here who try and solo with every single Pokemon.

What could be interesting is if it was a Snorlax themed team like maybe you are required to have a Snorlax, all other Pokemon on your team must be something similar to the weight of a Snorlax, it can't over a certain amount of pounds or under. Maybe allow Jigglypuff that has sing or Hypnosis

I've got some idea's.

First Encounter
Basicly, your only allowed to capture one pokemon per route for your team. You can interchange you team, but only with a first catch from another route. Grass/Surfing/Fishing are seperate encounters. If you encounter the same pokemon on two diffrent routes, you'll be having two of the same. HM slaves allowed, but only if you don't have a pokemon that can learn that HM.

Caged in Darkness
Basicly, you can only use pokemon that you catch in caves. HM slaves allowed

Don't forget
Your not allowed to forget moves. Basicly, your first 4 will be what you have to use. HM slaves are allowed of course.

Sentimental
You can't forget the first same type move that your pokemon learns. Say you have a fire pokemon. It learns Ember. It can't forget it. For normal pokemon, it will be the first move in their list. If your pokemon already knows a same type move, then it can't forget that one. If it knows more then one then you must keep whichever one it learns at a lower level (This means checking Serbrii) For dual typed pokemon, same type will be considered their first listed type.

Clipped Wings
Basicly, you can't use flying type pokemon or flying type moves, including HM Fly.

this is an Area Challenge, it's been done before, feel free to revive it with all areas considered (grass, water, etc.)

These are both okay ideas for a challenge. I think they have been done before, try searching the threads that go back more than a month.

This isn't restricting enough by itself for a real challenge.

Mr. X
August 31st, 2011, 06:41 PM
First catch is completely unrelated to Nuzlocke because
A) if it faints, its still alive
and
B) You can catch more then one pokemon on a certian route. (Say a route has water on it. You catch a pokemon in the grass. You surf on the water and catch one. You fish and catch one) unlike nuzlocks where the entire route is counted as a area which im assuming means your only allowed to catch one pokemon with the method of your choice. (Grass, or surfing or fishing)

Snorlax themed sounds good. Too bad my Pokedex (Pkmn Dmnd) broke. I could make a list.

You could always use bulbapedia it has Pokemon listed by weight

Laure, you should totally post that Christian challenge.

But Syd, what about the Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindis, Agnostics, Taoists, and Atheists?

Or would that give us too many options?

Gah, I'm trying to come up with an idea for a challenge, but I can't. The few ideas I could come up with were already mentioned here... on the previous page, so I don't believe that I should even try them. Anybody have any ideas that I could use...?
If I'm right, there can only be one of each challenge going at once, right? What I mean by that is, if there's (for example) an Unevolved Challenge already going, I can't make one of my own? Even if there were differing rules or options or something?

EDIT: Well, I came up with SOMETHING, and I have no idea if it's been done before.
There's two, but they're basically one challenge.

In the first, you use Pokemon used by the evil team in the game that you're playing. When you have no gym badges, you use the Pokemon of the lowliest grunts there are. Once you have two badges, you may use Pokemon used by the stronger grunts. With four badges, the Pokemon of the Admins, and with 6, the Pokemon of the Team's Leader.

For example, if you're playing BW:
0 Badges - Grunt: Patrat/Purrloin/Sandile/Scraggy/Trubbish
2 Badges High Grunt: Watchog/Liepard/Krokorok/Krookodile/Scrafty/Garbador
4 Badges - Admin(Ghetsis): Cofagrigus/Boufallant/Seismitoad/Bisharp/Eelectross/Hydreigon
6 Badges - Leader(N): Pidove/ Timburr/ Tympole/ Darumaka/ Sigilyph/ Boldore/ Ferroseed/ Joltik/ Klink/ Carracosta/ Archeops/ Vanilluxe/ Zoroark

You will be able to use any and all Pokemon from past ranks, and anything in their evolutionary lines. If you want even more of a challenge, you could stick to using the first rank Pokemon and not their evolutions.

You may also do this by using the Pokemon of a single gym leader in your region. If you're playing GSC/HGSS, you may not use the Pokemon of a Kanto gym leader... unless you're doing a super easy mode.

There will be a little bit more to it, but that's most of it.

I like the idea of a trainer class challenge. :) I'd totally participate. Dunno what game I'd use...probably Emerald. Also, super cool awesome announcement time! There will be an event next month! If you know what next month is and what it's associated with, I'm sure you can guess what type of event it is. Still working out some stuff on it, but it should be a good one, and a little more challenging than previous events. And in other news, I think I'm crazy. I'm playing FireRed, which is my least favorite game. I just don't understand myself atm. ;-;

So, is that still around, or would I be able to revive it and incorporate my idea from above?
With all of those trainer classes, there's a lot more to it, but it's also a bit less specific and sometimes less is more, right? Well, I can think about the idea and see what I come up with :3 Thanks for letting me know about that :D

@Sydian - Nope, no idea what you're talking about. Unless it has something to do with Holloween :S
But if it's a bit specific to the Challenge forms, I have absolutely no idea at all. Ima new to this section X3

Welcome to this neck of the woods, stranger. ^.^

The old thread was specifically for HGSS and their trainer classes around the time it came out, so it's old and locked. So yes, you can definitely revive this challenge and incorporate your idea (I like the idea of the tier system, just not exclusivity to Plasma). If you want less to manage, you can make the challenge for 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation (since the 3rd and 4th generation has the remakes), or just a specific generation and narrow down/combine a few classes (like, combining bug catcher/maniac with aroma lady, just have the combos make sense, lol) that may only use one type.

I wouldn't stick steadfast to just confining yourself to one trainer class. That would be too samey for some challengers since there's not a ton of variety in the Pokemon Plasma uses. It would be like the Eevolution challenge (where the player would have a team of eevolutions). There's only Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Leafeon, Glaceon, Espeon, and Umbreon. With 8 choices, it's inevitable that some people will have similar or the same teams. That would be a boring thread to read.

And considering that next month is All Hallows Eve, it will most likely be a Halloween Challenge. Sydian's pretty much in charge of the larger scale challenges that usually corresponds to holidays (see my sig. one was St. Patrick's). They usually come with prizes (emblems for you profile), and they usually have a time limit (to the end of the month we're celebrating).

@Syd, maybe you're playing it for the nostalgia of Kanto but don't want the 8bit graphics? :pink_giggle:

Edit: I found patches of the following:
Red with Dark and Steel types
Gold & Silver that adds the Safari Zone w/ version exclusives (They couldn't add Safari zone in Crystal, so instead, they added the version exclusives of Gold/Silver back in their original routes.)

May I say: sweet!

Now I just need to find a non-Viet version of a translated Japanese Crystal.

What do you guys think of the idea of a Base Power Challenge? The idea is that you can only use moves with a low base power, say, 60 or lower. I might make this challenge after I finish up with my Gorebyss solo challenge if it hasn't already been made. This challenge would make multi-hit moves like Dual Chop and Double Kick rather useful.

Could work,but I think it would be better to see if the Base Speed would be popular before trying this one,because they're kinda one of a pair,and if someone makes a Special-Based Moveset it wouldn't hurt that much.This doesn't work with base Speed because tehre's no opposite (Sp.Att. opposites Att.;Sp.Def. opposites Def.) ;P

Now here's an idea which seems extremely easy, yet I still do not wish to participate

"Shedinja's Challenge: Sans Wonder Guard, Level 100 Gym Fight!"

Goal: Get through all of the Gym battles AND Elite Four using lvl 100 Pokemon without sustaining a single hit from an offensive move!

Conditions: You may use any level Pokemon, but it's expected that you use level 100 Pokemon
Any Pokemon is okay, even emulation hacks.
If a pokemon sustains ONE hit from an offensive maneuver (during a Gym Leader Battle), you may no longer use it. If you're using six Slakings and they all get hit, you must try again from the PC. On this note, it's ideal to use the DeSmuMe Emulator, due to its multi-save function.

Trivial Matter: Save slot at the PC, and if you get blundered, load the recently saved data and act as if you'd whited (or as they FINALLY started saying, Blacked) out. You mmay challenge the leader again, but you must restart when your team has become perfectly imperfect.

Terminology:
Speed-through - OHKO each Leader Pokemon
Edinburgh - Using actual Shedinja - easiestestest way to do this
Stunfisk'd - When your Pokemon actually does Faint (Still Derpin' up your forums)
Objection! - Hardcore mode - if you sustain a SINGLE hit on any Pokemon, you must retry the gym. Also, the one hit fainting rule also applies to regular trainers! (Yep, Phoenix Wright.)
Kanto Killstreak - Perform the challenge in Kanto without being defeated once in Objection!
Johto Gype'd - Perform the Objection! challenge in Johto without a single loss
Hoenn Honed - Perform the Objection! challenge in Hoenn without a single loss
Sinnoh Scintillation - Perform the Objection! challenge in Sinnoh without a single loss
Unova Pride - Perform the Objection! challenge in Unova without a single loss OR ANY PREVIOUS GENERATION POKEMON
Unova Ultra - Perform the Unova Objection! challenge without a single loss

Achievement rankings:
Kanto Killstreak - 100 Gamerscore
Johto Gype'd - 125 Gamerscore
Sinnoh Scintillation - 150 Gamerscore
Unova Ultra - 175 Gamerscore
Unova Pride - 200 Gamerscore
Kanto Pride - 200 Gamerscore
Johto Pride - 200 Gamerscore
Hoenn Pride - 200 Gamerscore
Sinnoh Pride - 200 Gamerscore
Get Stunfisk'd - 0 Gamerscore
Shinobi - 50 Gamerscore (Edinburgh all the way)
Power-Player - 100 Gamerscore (Speed-through all the way)
Badger - 100 Gamerscore (Objection! Completion)
Skillful Nerd - 500 Gamerscore (Get all the Regional Achieveements)
I Own Everything - 500 Gamerscore (Get all other Achievements)

TotalPossible: 2,800 Gamerscore
If you get all the Gamerscore, you get good kudos.

And I hadn't planned to use just Team Plasma, that was just my example.

Holloween Challenge sounds... interesting. Perhaps it would have something to do with a Ghost/Dark type challenge/theme/something?

September 29th, 2011, 07:35 AM
Ohh looks like I came at the right time. Maybe a challenge where all Pokemon have to be ghost, dark types or have to be in the monster or amorphous egg groups.

I haven't being doing many challenges recently. I did get some of my Nuzlocke done in history however because my teacher said we could go on our laptops why he tried to get a documentary to play, it took him 45 minutes. Also I must beat Syd in my Hall of Fame Challenge.

So... I'm back on PC. So I guessed I'd join the Seed Bby madness and Nuzlocking Insanity also known as the Challenge forums once again~

Heh, random idea inspired by something I'm trying to do on PF.

The Other Thing Challenge (tentative name). You have to go through the game with Pokémon that you think are quite similiar to characters from your favourite anime/TV Show/book series/whatever. You can use your starter until you get a Pokémon that fits the criteria, but once you get it, your starter must be boxed/released. Oh yeah, you must try to get that Pokémon as soon as possible. (so if one of your mons is a Pikachu, search Viridian Forest until you find one instead of just skipping the forest like just another forest)

If I did start this, I think I'd do it on Diamond or something with Kidou Piplup->Empoleon as my starter, Endou Pichu->Raichu and Gouenji Growlithe->Arcanine (yay alliteration) being good some backup mons. And an useless Megane Magikarp for the box.

Unlike previous events, the Halloween challenge will be for all main games. :) Though I highly suggest not using anything older than RSE, otherwise your choices are going to be terrible.
