Ahri January 6th, 2013 7:55 PM

You are an only child, living with your Mother. Your Father is almost never home and your Mother’s always busy trying to offer you everything you need. You don’t have many friends as you never left your hometown and the said town happens to be a tiny one.
You’ve loved Pokémon ever since you were little, but never really had one of your own, because you had to wait until you were 10 years old to become a Trainer.
One fateful day, while running errands for your Mother, you encounter an injured Pokémon and decide to help it. However, two other Pokémon are protecting the injured one from humans. Not willing to give up, you refuse to leave the place until the two Pokémon allow you to tend to their friend. With their help, you bring it back home where you nurse it back to perfect health. In the meantime, you develop a strong bond with all three Pokémon and, the day your journey is supposed to begin, you ask your newly found friends if they wish to join you, to which they agree.
The four of you then head to the Pokémon Lab where you find out that your three friends are Legendary Pokémon and the professor tries convincing you not to take them along with you, but both you and your friends refuse to listen. Eventually, the professor agrees and allows you to leave on your journey.
It’s time for a great adventure! team must be formed by three different Legendary Pokémon. are allowed to hack/cheat in order to obtain your team members. may use Legendaries obtained from Events team mustn’t start at a level higher than 15. Slaves are allowed and recommended. are allowed to hack in the required items for Forme changing. Formes do not count as separate Pokémon. you choose Arceus, you are only allowed to use one plate which will be chosen the moment you pick your team and will be held by the Pokémon throughout the challenge. are allowed to use hacked game versions, but you are to decide when the challenge ends yourself. you wish to make it even more interesting, feel free to add any additional rules to your challenge. (at your own discretion) challenge ends when you’ve defeated the champion in the game as follows:
R/B/Y/FR/LG: Blue (Your Rival)
G/S/C/HG/SS: Red (At Mt Silver)
R/S: Steven
E: Wallace
D/P/Pt: Cynthia
B/W: Alder
B2/W2: Iris
X/Y: ???

You can obtain Legendary Pokémon through various methods which include: Pokémon: Some Nintendo Events release low level Legendary Pokémon. Event: In HG/SS you can obtain one of the Creation Trio Pokémon by placing Arceus in the first spot of your party and visit the Ruins of Alph. The Pokémon you obtain will be at level 1. Radar: Using a 3DS and BW2, you can import low level Legendary Pokémon, before getting the first few badges. You can use Action Replay, Save Editors, Encounter Editors to obtain your Pokémon for the challenge. Max Ivs, no RNG abuse & stuff. It will take the fun away from it if you do any of that. If you hack in your Pokémon, please don't offer them for trades in the Trade Corner.

Just updated the lists. I should be starting my challenge sometime this week hopefully.
Not sure if you noticed, but I signed up with two games, and only one is listed in the OP.

Finally starting with the challenge! Note: Player name is Byakuya. For anyone who doesn't know, Pokemon Pitch Black is a ROM Hack where all 649 Pokemon are available in some way, and where most major Trainers (Gym Leaders, Elite Four, Rivals) have had their genders changed (for example, Cheren is now female, while Bianca is now male).

-Picked starter (Tepig)
-Defeated both Bianca and Cheren
-Obtained the Xtransceiver
-Received the Pokedex
-Obtained the Town Map
-Received 5 Poke Balls
-Caught Benihime/Latias (F, Lv.5)
-Caught RyujinJaka/Victini (Lv.5)
NB: I've actually managed to hack an Event Meloetta into the PC, so I will be able to get it to learn Relic Song. Unfortunately, I will not be using it just yet, due to it being Lv.40.
-Released Tepig
-Caught Slavinator/Zigzagoon (F, Lv.3)

-Was challenged by PKMN Trainer N
-Focus Energy combined with Incinerate took down Purrloin
-Confusion eliminated Glameow
-PKMN Trainer N was defeated

-Obtained the Running Shoes
-Saved progress for now


RyujinJaka/Victini (Lv.13)
Focus Energy, Confusion, Incinerate, Quick Attack

Benihime/Latias (F, Lv.13)
Psywave, Wish, Helping Hand

I saw that but figured that you would do one then the other. I can list both though if you like.

my soulsilver crashed just before the 2nd gym and I don't want to risk that again,
so I'd like to switch to ShinyGold if that's ok with you.

Team: Ho-Oh - Giratina - Cobalion
Additional rules:
> Not allowed to use items mid-battle.
> Allowed to revive once and only one Pokémon during the whole challenge.
> Allowed to choose the nature of these 3 legendares.

Progressing very easily so far thanks to my team's typing.
> The 1st Gym (Normal type) was no match to Giratina and Cobalion.
> Reckless as I am, Ho-Oh almost fainted to a sonicboom while poisoned. I stressed a little, haha! :D
> Also, wasted a load of Pokéballs, Great Balls and a Premier ball to catch a Magby, even tough I lowered it's hp and paralyzed it... u_u"
> After grinding at Virbank Complex I headed back to the Poison Gym which was very easy too, especially because Cobalion is immune to Poison!

So that's it for now, none of my Pokes fainted, yet.

ShinyGold isn't complete! The latest beta ends at Fuchsia Gym. (Just telling you in case you didn't know already!)
