The old thread owner was inactive, so I was given permission to revive this thread. Basically, this challenge is obviously based off of the Hunger Games series, if you haven't read the books or seen the movie, I suggest you do, they're really good.

How to sign up for challenge:

First, go take this personality quiz to find out which District you belong in (Capitol included). Note that this quiz was not made by me, so credit to the creator of the quiz goes where credit is due.

Next, use this sign-up sheet and you should be on the list within a week.



Username: Samurott01
Game(s): Red, Gold, Ruby, Diamond, Black
Ultimate: Yes
District: 13


1a. Your Pokemon must be certain types based on your District. The list is as follows:

District 1 – Luxury - Dragon and Fighting
District 2 – Masonry - Fighting and Rock
District 3 – Technology - Steel and Electric
District 4 – Fishing - Water and Dark
District 5 – Power - Electric and Water
District 6 – Transportation - Flying and Electric
District 7 – Lumber - Grass and Ground
District 8 – Textiles - Psychic and and Flying
District 9 – Grain – Fire and Bug
District 10 – Livestock - Normal and Fighting
District 11 – Agriculture - Bug and Fighting
District 12– Mining - Ground and Fire
District 13 – Graphite and Nuclear - Rock and Ghost
Capitol - Influence - Dark and Ice (The two types that make President Snow who he is lol)

1b. If you can not obtain a Pokemon of your types before you obtain your third badge, you may hack or trade ONE Pokemon of your District in.

1c. If you are playing on HG/SS, you may use Pokewalker to obtain Pokemon, if you have the option. If you play B/W/B2/W2, you may use Dream World/Dream Radar to obtain Pokemon. You can do this for as many Pokemon as possible, and none of them will count as traded or hacked.

1d. Legendaries are allowed if they are AT LEAST one of your types.

1e. The Fairy type WILL NOT be used in ANY of the District combinations. The Districts will stay the same. You can use Fairy-types if you want to and they share one of your types.

2. You MAY trade or hack a Pokemon just for the sake of evolution, however you don't have to evolve it if you don't want to.

3. After you defeat a Gym Leader, you have the option to form an alliance of sorts and adopt their type, enabling you to use up to three types. However, you may only do this for one Gym Leader; big alliances never work very well.

3b. The triplets, Cilan, Chili, and Cress, may confuse some people. You can only align with the one YOU beat, just to clarify for anyone playing Black or White.

4. If one of your Pokemon faints, you may not use it again, it is "dead". If all of your Pokemon "die", you lose and must start over.

5. HM slaves are allowed, but you must have only one and preferably your type. I realize that a few types can't use all HMs, so if the need be, it can be a different type.

6. You can only capture Pokemon that are in their first stage; the Hunger Games only accept kids as tributes (with only one exception - the 3rd Quarter Quell).

7. Hacks are allowed in place of your normal main series games, however they must be in the same region as the game it is replacing; for example, Fire Red Omega is allowed for Kanto, and Storm Silver is allowed for Johto. You may also use complete hacks, however they will be listed under a different section as the main series games.

8. Ultimates are not only allowed, but encouraged! An Ultimate is defined as at least three wins of the same District in at least three different regions.

9. In most games, the challenge ends when the credits roll for the first time, except in Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, where you have to beat Red.

10. If, after being the Victor of five (5) Hunger Games, you choose to, you may challenge a Quarter Quell. You may challenge the first, second, or third Quarter Quell. The standards for the Quarter Quells are as follows:

1st Quarter Quell (25th Hunger Games)
In the first quarter quell, the districts voted who they wanted to pick as tributes. In the first quarter quell, you may pick your two types of the 18 existing types.

2nd Quarter Quell (50th Hunger Games)
In the second quarter quell, the districts sent twice the number of tributes. In the second quarter quell, you may pick two districts and use all four of their types. Also, you may align yourself with TWO Gym Leaders instead of one.

3rd Quarter Quell (75th Hunger Games)
In the third quarter quell, tributes were reaped from the existing victors. In the third quarter quell, you may use ANY of the types from the five districts before. Also, the 6th rule is nullified.

Well what do you know... I broke part of my resolution.

Name: Honeyman
Game: Soul Silver
District: 13 (woopee, rock)
Optional rules: None

hopelessangelic January 4th, 2013 1:39 PM

Thanks for joining! Update as much as you can :) Hope you enjoy

Honeyman January 4th, 2013 3:24 PM

Decided to give myself an extra rule that's not up there: If I have caught the Pokemon before, I can't catch another.

That means that if I caught a Geodude, I can't catch another Geodude even if the first faints. Though if the first Geodude never evolved, then I'm free to catch Graveler/Golem.

Optional Rules?: I'll use #7
I'll also refuse to evolve the Pokemon that I use, seeing as they're supposed to be kids.

jdthebud January 4th, 2013 7:49 PM

How do we win the challenge? Also I feel like there is some possibility for eash district having two types, that way all the Pokemon types are represented, and you also some some variety so it's not just another monotype challenge. i.e. the Coal District could be Ground and Fire, etc.

Honeyman January 4th, 2013 8:13 PM

Well it is not only a monotype. It is like a monotype mixed with a nuzlocke.

But still, it is like a monotype mixed with a nuzlocke.

hopelessangelic January 5th, 2013 3:33 PM

That's a good point. Ill start thinking of a new type for each district. You win when you best the champion. Exceptfor Gold Silver and Crystaland remakes, you have to beat Red (he is Snow). Sorry for not clearing that up

Oh man the one type I didn't want!

OrangeNess January 5th, 2013 9:21 PM

Username- OrangeNess
Game- Gold Version (A lot of people are going with Gen II/Gen II Remakes, so why not follow suit?)
District- 4 - Water
Optional Rules?- 7
This is my first challenge! Wish me luck!

Honeyman January 5th, 2013 11:25 PM

So... When are you going to change up the types? Or are you going to?

OrangeNess January 6th, 2013 7:20 AM

Probably at the first gym, flying. I need a way to use fly eventually! :D

hopelessangelic January 6th, 2013 9:47 AM

Another type has been added to your district, you may use that type as well. So now you can get up to 3 types.

@OrangeNess Good Luck!!

And I'll update now!
I traded an Axew to my White game and started. I beat both people and obviously couldn't catch any pokemon. I beat Cilan ( I chose Oshwatt as my starter). I didn't choose grass pokemon as my alliance. That's my update for now :)

Game-white 2
Optional Rules?none, sorry

hi guys.

BlueShellBeast January 6th, 2013 10:39 AM

Ah sweet! Now I don't have to worry about my Eevee evolving into an Umbreon. (I allied with Whitney)

lineofdeath January 6th, 2013 10:40 AM

my team?


Nolafus January 6th, 2013 10:41 AM

I beat the first gym (flying) with my party being:

And now I can start using grass types, sweet! I'm good with those (as you can probably tell)!

Just beat the second gym (bug) with my party being:

I beat the first gym last night, but didn't post till this morning so I didn't beat both gyms within 5 minutes!

hopelessangelic January 6th, 2013 1:38 PM

Thanks for theupdate Slayr123,.impressive beating a flying gym with one bug Pokemon. and blueshellblast, you didn't have to ally with Whitney, because Eevee would evolve into one of your types. Butnormal should be useful sincethey learn such a variety of moves

BlueShellBeast January 6th, 2013 3:02 PM

Oh, I was going to ally myself with Whitney anyway due to how awesome Miltank and Tauros are.

At any rate, here is my team 4 badges in (I was going to have a story to go along with this, but I'm a lazy person.):
Fangus/ King / ThrownStar /Whitney /Buck /Ellis/
Level 40 /Level 30/ Level 22/ Level 15/ Level 15/ Level 30/

Nolafus January 7th, 2013 5:29 PM

Today we had a snow day so I was able to focus on nothing but this challenge and consider the Hunger Games Complete! My final party was:
Ariados (lvl 100), Butterfree (lvl 100), Weepinbell (lvl 100), and I allied with the ice gym leader so Piloswine (lvl 100)

I guess I don't mind grinding as much as some other people!

OrangeNess January 7th, 2013 6:13 PM

Wow, I'm behind. Well here's:
Update #1
+Got Totodile who I named Carl
+Did Mr. Pokemon Sidequest
