Many of you have attempted and/or completed different "challenges" to make a seemingly mundane Pokemon re-play more fun...more interesting. You introduce new rules to the game in order to get a more satisfying thrill, for example: The Nuzlocke Challenge, The XXXXXX-Only Run, et cetera.
Today I propose a new challenge, one unlike the aforementioned. I propose a race.
The basic rules are simple:
1) Complete every "league" or "journey" in as many compatible regions as you can (obviously, the farthest back you can start is Gen III).
2) One to Three pokemon must be present in EVERY TEAM and EVERY REGION you challenge (these pokemon will be like Ash's Pikachu, the only ones you bring when you switch regions). Nicknames are recommended. The final 5-3 spots on your team may vary from region to region.
3) Finish the Five Leagues (optional quests: Orre, Poketopia) before the Japanese or English release of POKEMON BLACK 2 and POKEMON WHITE 2.
You may accomodate the ruleset as long as these main three are kept in essence. For those who may not have games as far back as Gen III may start in Gen IV and so on and so forth.
The most complete challenge may look like this:
Permanent Team Pokemon: Gallade, Dragonite, Togekiss (Ralts from RSE, Dratini/Togepi from FRLG traded over)
(Ruby OR Sapphire OR Emerald) > (FireRed OR LeafGreen) > (Colosseum OR XD) >> (Diamond OR Pearl OR Platinum) > (HeartGold OR SoulSilver) > (Battle Revolution) >> (Black OR White)
-You will learn to pace yourself (leveling up your permanent pokemon early on in the challenge will result disobedience when traded to the next region).
-You will develop a closer bond with your permanent pokemon.
This is meant to challenge the trainer who's been there since the beginning (or at least, since Gen III).
Good Luck. The clock is ticking.
