The Favorite Challenge
Welcome, bbys. I know, a little weird to see me running a challenge, but I saw a great suggestion in the CI&D thread and just had to make this thread. Credit to the challenge idea goes to Master Strife. So, let's get down to the rules, shall we? ;)

Before we get to that, you'll just have to do a little something. :> I suggest going to Serebii's Pokedex so you can see a list of Pokemon for each type. You will need to make a list of your favorite 6 Pokemon from each type, even the types you don't like. Have it typed up in Notepad or MS Word. You're not required to post this list, but if you really want to, please put it in spoiler tags. The reason for this is so people that have relatively weak favorites (Pikachu, Sunkern, Metapod...? XD) don't get completely screwed by the person assigned their team.

Once you make your list, then you're good to sign up. The next person to sign up will choose 6 types (so teams of 6 are required for this challenge). Let's say they pick Rock, Bug, Fire, Dragon, Dark, and Ghost. You would have to use your first fave rock, 2nd fave bug, 3rd fave fire, etc. Get me? ;)

Now with the technical stuff out of the way, here's the rules:

1. No cheating unless given permission (events or inability to trade).
2. Trading is allowed, including for eggs.
3. Please don't lie about your favorites in your list for those of you not posting it. If you have a team of Ho-oh, Deoxys, Heatran, etc., then I might have to assign you different types.
4. HM slaves are allowed.
5. Emulators are allowed.
6. This is for HGSS and DPPT since past generations may not include enough Pokemon to fill the 6 spots (such as Dragon types in gen I). Edit (12/6/10): Black and White ARE allowed to be used for this challenge now!
7. When signing up, if you have even one legendary in one of your top 6 for any type, you must say so.
8. If you do end up with any legendaries, it/they must stay 5 levels under your highest leveled Pokemon. Rotom is not considered a legendary in this case and Arceus is considered normal. Since Arceus is...well, Arceus, it must stay 10 levels under the highest on the team.
9. A Pokemon can be listed as a favorite for more than one type. (Rotom can be a favorite ghost and electric) However, this runs the risk of using two of the same Pokemon.
10. Challenge ends (for all) after defeating the E4. If you wanna continue with the rest of the game, feel free too. I just felt like HGSS had it more unfair since it's longer. Plus I don't like the Kanto part of the game, so for those like me...
11. If you end up with a Pokemon that's not fully evolved, you must keep it that way. That NFE Pokemon is what's in your favorites, not the evolution (in some cases).

I know this might all sound a little confusing, and I'm not the best at explaining, but I tried. XD If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Nope, nope. This is for HGSS and DPPT, not Yellow. There aren't enough Pokemon to fill the 6 Pokemon in each type for that, which I why I picked gen IV games. Also, you didn't read the rules. You aren't choosing your number 1 fave. You have to pick 6 faves from each type. Go back and read the rules of the challenge.

Grey Fish, you can have Grass, Electric, Rock, Ground, Ice, and Dark. Also, please don't swear. If it's bad enough to get *'d out, then it's considered censor bypass.

My team...is the pits. lmao. At least there's only one Pokemon I have to trade for.

Venonat
UNOWN (yeah...shut up)
Skarmory
Luvdisc
Jumpluff
Nidorino

I'll be starting later today. I don't know when I can trade over Luvdisc. :| Anyone know if you can fish for one in DPPT? I hate migrating with a passion.

Horray for ignoring Karen! I'm sorry, but strong Pokemon are my favorites. Weak Pokemon are cute and all, but just not appetizing to me...

Team:
1. poison: Nidoking <3<3<3
2. rock: Rhyperior <3<3
3. fire: Blaziken
4. electric: Luxray (strangely enough, the only type where one of my top 6 was NFE, which was Magneton, my third favorite Electric Type)
5. bug: Heracross
6. ghost: Sableye

Now, lets see... Need to trade for Sableye, Blaziken, and Nidoking, because I don't want to have to complete the Sinnoh Pokedex first, and I don't have Sapphire.

One question: When I'm trading my eggs, are Egg moves allowed?

Also, for Ace Dragonite: Take Water, Psychic, Grass, Bug, Flying, and Rock

Yes, egg moves are allowed. I was considering making a Hoppip egg for Subseed, but I really don't wanna be bothered with it.

Ok I won't swear…

Anyways, I got:
Parasect <3
Electabuzz (I'll evolve him if I can)
Onix (same as above)
Sandshrew <3<3<3 (he's just not great battle-wise, but prolly my second fave all-time … not sure if I'll evolve him)
Lapras
Tyranitar
It's gonna take a while to get most (ok half) of them though :\

You can't evolve the Sandshrew. If you get a Pokemon that is not fully evolved, you can't evolve it. That defeats the purpose. I guess I'll edit that part of the rules.

atm, I'm about to go fight Falkner...with Unown and Hoppip. lmao. I'll edit this post after, since I update after each gym battle.

This was a pain in the butt to train. Erase isn't doing half bad, though. But I expect he'll get worse as the game progresses. I think his HP is Psychic, so STAB ftw? I'll have to get him a Twisted Spoon to help accommodate that. Books is...umm...alright...I guess. Better when he evolves, I'm sure. Also about Luvdisc, I'll fish for one in Platinum and trade it over when I see it fit for it to go, or whenever the levels match up. Don't feel like breeding and hatching and stuff. Bugsy will sure be a fun fight. Also, I hate Roost. :) Just throwing that out there. I'm having to Resort to Struggle because of it.


Books / Hoppip (m) lv. 14
???
- Poison Powder
- Stun Spore
- Synthesis
- Tackle


Erase / Unown-E lv. 13
Levitate
- Hidden Power (Psychic?)

Hmm… that makes sense I guess, and I suppose it means I can't evolve Onix either. :\

Well, regarding the Electabuzz, what if I prefer Electivire, but I don't know if I'll be able to evolve him??? :confused:

If Electabuzz was on your list in the same spot Electric was assigned to you, then no. That's like...okay, I have Venonat as my first fave bug. Venomoth isn't even in the top 6, so why would I evolve it? The point is to use favorites. Another example is that I have Combusken and Blaziken in my top 6 fighting types. If I had been assigned Fighting as my 4th type (where Combusken is on the list), I wouldn't be able to evolve it, even though Blaziken is in my top 6. Make a little more sense?

@ Ace, also you might have a little bit of an Ice problem. I have a Water problem, but Luxray + Egg move Rhyperior make it all better.

Let's not even discuss how much of a pain Bugsy was...I lost to him once. Probably the hardest Bugsy battle I've ever had. He's normally a pushover, but I tell ya, with that U-Turn, he's not to be taken lightly. FOUND A SHINY EKANS WHILE TRAINING THOUGH. ^____^ So despite having the worst team out of all of us, I think I've already owned you all. jk, jk. :P But still, I'm very happy. :)


Books / Hoppip (m) lv. 21

Alakazam or Aggron can probably learn Flamethrower or Focus Blast, I'll be okay I think

Just obtained the Zephyr Badge!
(and the Togepi egg)

Well, I started my journey, and the second Pokémon I ran into was nothing more and nothing less than a:

¡¡¡ shiny Sentret !!!

Unfortunately, of course, I hadn't even reached Mr. Pokémon's house, and didn't have any Poké Balls on me so… [insert non-stopping swearing here]

Anyways, Rocky (the Onix you trade for a Bellsprout in Violet City) is already disobeying me, so I'll probably box him and catch a new Onix… :\

Current Team:
Spoiler:

Rocky
Onix | ♂ | Lv 13 | @ Persim Berry
Hasty Nature
Ability: Sturdy
Moves:
Tackle | Harden | Rock Throw | Screech

Frijolito (HM Slave)
Chikorita | ♂ | Lv 12 | @ --
Jolly Nature
Ability: Overgrow
Moves:
Tackle | Synthesis | Razor Leaf | PoisonPowder


Also, regarding the Electabuzz issue, although I wrote down Electabuzz, I did so because I knew I wouldn't be able to get an Electivire (since I took into account Pokémon I'd be able to obtain I guess I made my list bad :\), so would I still have to use Electabuzz?
Meh, I probably won't get Electivire either way so don't worry, I'll just stick to Electabuzz.

What if you don't have 6 favorites in one type? Just put a I-sorta-like-it Pokemon in the sixth slot? Also, would it be allowed to ask for 5 types so there will be room for a slave and only put your top 5 favorites on the list?

Yeah, I did that with certain types, such as Rock and Steel. But no, you'll have to have 6. Sorry. :(

I would like to sign up for this challenge but I'm a bit confused. I understand to write out a list of 6 of my top favorites for each type. But do I choose the 6 types for my party or does someone else pick out the six types?
