The Team Rocket Challenge!
Welcome all to the Team Rocket Challenge, originally created by TR-Giovanni.
As the name may suggest, you basically play your game(s) while acting like a Team Rocket member would.
Emulators are allowed, including the use of the speed button.
Fan-made games are allowed also.
As with many other challenges, HM Slaves are available to be used, but a maximum of two. This means that your other Pokemon may need to learn HM moves.
In-game trades are allowed (e.g. G/S/C/HG/SS Violet City give kid a Bellsprout for an Onix).
Basically, the Ultimate Challenge is where you play a game from each region. This means: R/B/Y/FR/LG, G/S/C/HG/SS, R/S/E, D/P/Pt, B/W/B2/W2.
Note that if you do decide to do the Ultimate Challenge, you can play the games in any order.

I beg your pardon? Did you claim to have created this challenge? I beg to differ, for unless you're a split personality I was not aware I had, you are not the creator.
I appreciate that you like the challenge enough to want to try it and spread it, but please don't take credit for something you didn't make. You did add a few rules, such as allowing in-game trades and treating gifts as stolen, but that doesn't make you the creator of the challenge.
Of course, anyone can claim to have made it up, so I will offer some proof. I first created this challenge for my Team Rocket Facebook group, and while I cannot post links yet, it can be found at Facebook .com / groups / PrepareForTrouble (with the spaces removed). You'll see that the date it was posted predates this thread. You can also find it on memebase, where I submitted it: hcheezburger .com/ 6411112704 (again, with the spaces removed).
Although for what it's worth, I've been playing this on my Pearl version. My current team consists of Infernape, Golem, Crobat, Mismagius, Drapion, and Persian.
Now that that's taken care of, good luck with the rest of the challenge, I look forward to seeing everyone's progress.
As for myself, I'm nearly through Victory Road. The "no leaving an area until all other trainers are defeated" makes it so I can't leave and heal when the opponent gets a lucky crit, or my team starts getting worn down, but I stocked up on healing items for this. Mismagius has an edge against most of the wild Pokemon, but a trainer's Empoleon proved troublesome with resistances to most of my team's moves. Not too troublesome, of course.
The exit is in sight, but I have to backtrack to defeat any trainers I missed. They'll all learn the might of Team Rocket before I take on the Pokemon League.
Ultimate:no(idk waht this is for)
username: Rafael p Ultimate: no game:Yellow
Ok, before i sign up, I would like to ask a question as I am not 100% sure I understand right,
how do you 'steal' a pokemon? (I am assuming that you need the cheat device to steal another trainers pokemon)
If you are given (stolen) a pokemon that is not of the types listed (exaple: one of the element monkies) you can use it until it faints?
Why only those types listed?
Ty in advance
While no one would ever use it, should Wobbuffet be allowed for the same reason as Meowth/Lickitung?
game: soul silver
I wont start till im accepted tho :)
Username/Trainer Name: Zagan (when i restart, im naming myself Zagan)
Ultimate: not for now
Triple edit: Started again (still same info as above)
That's up to the player; if you treat it as a stolen Pokemon, you can use it until it faints. If you don't, then you can't use it.
Those are the types traditionally used by the teams; the more evil-seeming Pokemon, as it were, or at least the types commonly seen used by Team Rocket. Ground is included because Giovanni runs the ground-type gym in Viridian City.
@ bwburke94: Wobbuffet, while not listed on the types, is associated with TR enough to allow it, but preferably if the player uses the name "Jessie."
Username/Trainer Name: Charlie Brown / James*
Ultimate: No thanks
I saw this on another forum and I signed up for it there, so I'll post my updates here as well (if I remember). I'm currently doing another challenge on Ruby so it'll be a while before I start though, unfortunately.
*because James is amazing ok
I'm going to go ahead and sign up for this.
Ultimate: At the moment, no. I do lots of challenges though, so I might eventually change it to an ultimate.
And I'm cocky enough to tell you my team: Nidoking and Misty's Starmie.
Don't know why I'm editing as I go, but Update 1:
Got Bulbasaur, beat Blue, got Nidoran M, beat Blue, Nidoran M evolved.
Beat Brock, Nidorino Evolved, Taught Nidoking Water Gun, Caught Starmie, Beat Misty, Beat Blue.
Been very busy with other things lately so I haven't had time to update so let's get started.
Ive had to play normally for a bit cause I just got a 3ds and i cant use AR, so im at driftvale about to take out Clay
Servine (original starter)
Also, there's a couple more Pokemon you need to add to the list. Off the top of my head, you should add the Drowzee and Machop families. The Rocket in Cerulean City that gives you dig has a Machop and Drowzee, and in Silph, a Rocket on 10F has a Machoke, and a Rocket on 5F has a Hypno
Oh no, I was saying that Machop and Drowzee should be on the list of usable Pokemon, because Team Rocket uses them, similarly to how Meowth, Lickitung, and Kangaskhan are allowed.
And update 2 is here:
Traded Spearow for Farfetch'd <--- first slave
Taught Dux Cut
Taught Nidoking Body Slam
Rubbed the SS Anne's Captain's back
Taught Starmie Thunderbolt and Bubblebeam
Taught Starmie Ice Beam and Nidoking Rock Slide
Taught Starmie Psychic.
Got Lapras <--- Second Slave
Taught Nidoking Earthquake
Taught Dux Fly
Made an oopsies and deleted Starmie's Psychic for Surf instead of deleting Bubblebeam for Surf.
Taught Lapras Strength
Not quite completed yet; don't forget, the goal is to capture all the legendary Pokemon. Mewtwo and the birds await.
@ myrrhman: I wanted to include those as well, but I had to make the rules quick, and including a list of Pokemon outside the regular types that show up once or twice would have taken too much space. Still, since they are used by Team Rocket, you can treat those as an exception if you'd like.
I suppose I should include an update on my own progress. I've defeated the Sinnoh Elite Four, mostly thanks to Golem using Explosion against Cynthia's team, and have begun my hunt for the legendaries of the region. Azelf and Uxie were first, but Mesprit, apparently detecting its brothers' capture, fled from me. I'm chasing it across the region now.
Stark Mountain proved tiring, as I had to best every trainer scattered across it before moving to the central chamber, but Heatran is now mine as well. Having captured it, I moved on to Turnback Cave for Giratina, who was by far the most stubborn one I fought, but he too eventually fell before me. It helped that my Misdreavus and Persian could switch in and out to block all its attacks.
For Regigigas, I had to request backup from the Hoenn branch of Team Rocket, but they sent the three Regis my way. With them in hand, I made my way to find Regigigas, and captured it shortly after it got its act together. Fortunately, by that time it had worn itself out with repeated uses of Superpower, making it weak enough to catch.
I encounter a strange time phenomana and it has took me back to the start of my adventure, all the acts of evil, all the badges everything has gone, and even as I recount this, memories fade - but all I remember is my name, Zagan - and that I am a Team Rocket operative in the Unova region and I will once more take the Team Rocket banner and capture all the legendary monsters for the might of Team Rocket!
(ooc bit, I messed up a code and it locked me out my pokemon boxes, so ive had to start again, but its a good thing in a way, i can go back to stealing trainers pokemon)
