*cue lights and fancy music and sexy dancers*
Eventually I will get fancy formatting, until then, deal with it!
What is this challenge you ask? Well sit right down, over-energetic PokeCommunity member, and I'll tell you!
To play through an entire Pokemon game using not 1, not 3, not 865733.4, but
TWO, count 'em, TWO Pokemon, which must should be entirely different species.
1. You may only use the two Pokemon you sign up to use. You can't say: "O, im gonna yewz Grodon 2 set up da sun eech turn, but im only yewzing my 2 pkmn". That's not the point of the challenge. Stick with the two you sign up with. NFEs are allowed! HM Slaves are also allowed, but they cannot be used in battle! if you do, you're horrible and you should feel horrible
2. Hacking and trading are expressly forbidden, except in the following cases:
a) You are using Pokemon not native to that region. (e.g. Nidoking in Ruby, Kingdra in White, etc.)
b) One or both of your Pokemon cannot be obtained reasonably quickly (i.e prior to 1st/2nd gym).
c) You want egg moves.
If one of these cases apply, then: you are allowed to hack the most basic form of the Pokemon in @ level 5, or trade over an egg.
3) The object is:
-GRBYFRLG- Obtain 8 Badges, Defeat [insert rival's name here].
-GSCHGSS- Obtain 16 Badges, Defeat the Elite Four and Red.
-RSE- Obtain 8 Badges, Defeat Steven.
-DPPt- Obtain 8 Badges, Defeat Cynthia.
-BWB2W2- Obtain 8 Badges, Defeat Alder/Iris. (Not too sure about B2W2, idk if you can defeat Iris right away)
4) You may sign up for either a single or ultimate challenge! A single challenge is one region and one game. The ultimate challenge requires using the same two pokemon in all five regions! (You may substitute remakes like FRLGHGSS for their original counterparts, if you'd like more selection.)
5) No legendaries. Cause then there would be no challenge, amirite?
6) Have fun.
7) Optional: Post screenshots of your progress if you are able! Text updates are no big deal, but it's always fun to see your pics. PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN !!!1!!1
8) You may play a hack. However, it can't be anything more than a generic 151/251/386/493/649 hack, because then it will be out of control.
Now if you're really paying attention, put the word "shucks" in your entry, and you'll get a gold star next to your name and acceptance into the challenge.
So you've read through all that jargon and you're still here? GOOD FOR YOU! You'll finally find out how to sign up!
Name: (Username on PC)/(Username In-Game)
Version: (Version of Choice) If this is a hack, please say both the hack name and the ROM base, it will save me tons of trouble.
Pokemon: (Pokemon 1)/(Pokemon 2) Hey there, Nickel again. POST THE FINAL EVOLUTION OF THE POKEMON OF CHOICE HERE PLEASE. If you don't I'll think you're doing your run with an NFE, which would be incorrect.
thenickel09-[Gardevoir/Nidoking], [Kabutops/Ninetales], [Venusaur/Banette]-Ruby
And now its time for Challenge-ception!
This section is where I'm gonna post specific Duo-Species runs. Take them on if you wish! They are entirely optional. But you will (eventually) get a special userbar, once I figure out how to make them/get someone to do them for me because I'm lazy!
#1) Nickel's Historic Challenge
Pokemon: http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/034.gif and http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/282.gif
This run is "historic" because it was the first ever DSC (and challenge in general, that I ever completed) and I want some of you to share the wealth.
#2) Syddy's Special
Game: Black/White/Black 2/White 2
Pokemon: http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/4/4b/Ani548MS.png and http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/197.gif
Hey, this is Sydian's Special Challenge, for all you adventurous nubs out there! No evolving Petilil!
Masters of the Seed Bby:
Pokemon: http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/206.gif and http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/191.gif
This run is just utterly "corny", but maybe something like this will "sparce" your challenge appetite.
Good luck to all of you!

Pokemon: Because I have a mental problem known as insanity, I will be going with Bibarel and Gyarados. I will however be using other pokemon as HM slaves, mainly because I find it strange not being able to fly.

So Shucks to that
Update for Ultimate Duo Challenge.

Pokémon: ... Shucks... I'm trying the utterly, utterly useless combination of Dunsparce and Sunkern ... I'm so going to regret it later though :(

This run is a lot easier than I thought. Sunkern is a pain, but Dunsparce is fairly useful.

I've decided to do this challenge on my Black Version, whith two Pokemon I've always been interested in using: Volbeat and Illumise. I can't hack, so I will have to trade over eggs as soon as I can (which is after the first gym).
Name: deku / deku
Version: Pokemon Black Version
Pokemon: Volbeat / Illumise
Right now I'm just rushing through the opening and first badge so I can go ahead and start this challenge!
Name: drunk ¬_¬
Version: Ruby (ROM)
Pokemon: Pinsir / Heracross
I plan on hacking both Pokémon to my game early on, since I'd rather not have to wait until I reach the Safari Zone to get the second one.
If, however, you'd prefer to have me wait, I'll just hack Heracross Pinsir first.
Started new game.
Named character SHINO (as in the Naruto character)
Obtained a Mudkip, named him SURF SLAVE
→ don't look at me like that ¬_¬
Hacked wild Pinsir and a Master Ball; named him KIMURA
→ damn bastards are impossible to catch with Poké Balls! ;~;
