Do you mean our actual height (or, with Sydian's suggestion, weight), or the height (/weight) of the in-game character?

Actual height; so if you are 5'6 you could use Pokemon that are 5, 5'1, 5'2, 5'3, 5'4, 5'5, 5'6, 5'7, 5'8, 5'9, 5'10, and 5'11 feet tall.

That seems kinda pointless. Couldn't that just be posted in the art forum or something? idk. I think you're the only one obsessed with Nuzlocke, lmao.

Go to this thread, see what Pokemon you seem to be like, then use it in a solo run.

Has anyone posted a "Don't use the Pokemon Center to Heal / Only Deposit Pokemon with Full Health and Good Status" Challenge? Try it
It takes a long time. You need to rely on solely Elixirs, Ethers, and Leppa Berries for PP and you have to be cautious in upgrading your attacks, since they lose max PP as they get stronger :D

Yeah, sounds like the No Pokemon Center run I mentioned a few posts back. I wish I could remember who did it on YouTube. It was stellar. He sold TMs he didn't use so that he could make money to re-buy the TMs he had used. And it was a solo run too, so...yeah. He did it with Charizard. Pretty awesome, I must say.

So, this is also a challenge discussion amirite? Here's some kickers for y'all:

What challenges are you currently doing?
I'm doing a random challenge on Diamond and HeartGold. For Diamond, my team will be Chinchou, Drifloon, Magcargo, Hitmonchan, Quagsire, and Skuntank. And HG will be Furret, Azumarill, Grumpig, Floatzel, Alakazam, and Breloom. I say I got pretty lucky with my teams, haha.

What are your favorite kinds of challenges and why?
Random and scramble challenges. Scrambles are a little weird because you need people in the challenge to assign you Pokemon, but I digress. Both can cause you to use Pokemon you wouldn't normally use, and I'm determined to have used every Pokemon at least once. :)

No. Gymnotide is saying exactly what she said. You can only deposit a Pokemon into the PC when it is at full health. This is because depositing heals the Pokemon to full, which would defeat the purpose of the challenge, which was to not use Pokemon Centers,

Also, Day Cares also heals when you take the Pokemon out.

I dunno if this idea has already been mentioned, but what about a "First Five Pokemon You See" challenge? Basically, you pick whatever starter you want, go through the game until you get access to Pokeballs, and then the first five wild Pokemon you see, you have to capture and use in the challenge. No fainting them until you get the one you want; if you get stuck with five Pidgeys, you use five Pidgeys. Ex:

I play Blue Version and start with Squirtle. I get the Pokedex, go to Viridian City the second time and buy ten or so Pokeballs. I go north and the first thing I see is a Pidgey so I capture it. I then find a Rattata (capture), and enter Viridian Forest where I see a Metapod, a Pikachu, and a Caterpie. I can evolve them, but these six are the only Pokemon I can use for the duration of the challenge.

okay thanks for that, than I guess I'll put catching a Pokemon at full health into my own challenge that I'm engineering

Forgive me if this has been stated in this thread already, but has there been a gym leader/E4 signature pokemon challenge yet, where you have to contruct your team out of the signature pokemon of the eight gym leaders or E4 members only (in HGSS, you're team has to be made up of six of the following: Pidgeot, Scyther/Scizor, Miltank, Haunter/Gengar, Poliwrath, Onix/Steelix, Mamoswine, Kingdra, Xatu, Crobat, Machamp, Houndoom, or Dragonite)?

It severely limits your selection of pokemon, but it gives you a chance to use some of the powerhouses your gonna be forced to fight against anyways. XD

@ Sceptile: You're basically thinking of the "First Come, First Served" Challenge
@ Gymno: I don't know of any existing Challenge like that, other than AceDragonite pointing his finger at me to complete it.
@ Timbjerr: There isn't a challenge like that, although there is a Gym/Elite Four Challenge, where you have to use Pokemon the Elite Four uses.
@ Sydian #1: Right now, I'm doing a Gym disadvantage Challenge, about to start an anime team challenge (Ash in RBY), and Ultimate Ghost Monotype (I'm stuck at Wake in Pt). I've also signed up for Random, Alphabet, and 3rd Gen Duo, although am not currently working on them.
@ Sydian #2: My favorite challenges are monotypes I think. I really like most challenges as long as its not too easy, or any challenge on RBY because its too easy for me. I can run through any challenge on RBY no matter the team in usually 1:30, so those challenges are quick. But monotypes are my favorite.

That's about all you would be able to get. I only know for sure of 4 balls you can get, 2 Pokeballs, one Great Ball, and the Master Ball. I'm sure there's a couple more, but I can't think of them off the top of my head (this is for Red/Blue). You would be able to get 5 events (Starter, Fossil, Eevee, Hitmonchan/lee, Lapras), but you really wouldn't want that many Pokemon, because you'd have to train them all up with limited attacks. I think when I do this, I'm going to try for a Nidoking solo run, maybe have one more... I don't know yet.

I'd like to see an ultimate solo challenge where you have to have 1 R/S/E, 1 Completed Platinum, and 1 Completed HG/SS, and you start on R/S/E and Pal Park it to the Platinum where you use it to beat every Gym Leader from the Gym Leader rematches, then trade it to HG/SS and do the same thing. Just to be able to say you beat every gym leader and every member of the Elite four of every region with one (the exact same) Pokemon.

How about a Cooperation or Team challenge, where all your Pokemon have to stay within one level of eachother. Also, you need to have a team of 3 pokemon by the 1st gym, 5 by the 2nd, and 6 by the 3rd.

You can challenge yourself more by adding certain things, like maybe you have to get all 6 by the 1st gym, or make it a Nuzlocke challenge as well.

I was gonna make a challenge like this but I'm too lazy, so anyone can take the idea.

It wouldnt be much of a challenge, because most people keep their team within a level of each other.

Oh, I was kinda under the impression that most people didnt get 6 Pokemon, and that they wouldnt keep it balanced if so.

Well what if it was a speed challenge as well?

That's exactly how I play on casual runs of Pokemon games, but there are people who might have never tried using a full team of six and keeping levels balanced. :P

So do I, but it could be a challenge to make it a speed challenge, as getting a whole team of 6 and keeping it even while beating the game as quick as possible isnt necessarily easy.

Or you could make it like a Nuzlocke challenge, except you can't catch any extra Pokemon either, which I think you can do in a Nuzlocke challenge I'm not sure.

idk. Just seems like a mesh of challenges to me...which, hey, "the mesh of challenges challenge"! That'd be insane. I wouldn't try it, but that's cause I'm really lazy.
