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

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 if you don't have anyone to trade with via wifi, etc.

***For added difficulty, you may combine other challenges such as Nuzlocke, Monotype, Baby Only, Unevolved, etc.
