OMG GOOD IDEA.

a Solo Nuzlocke.
Not sure how it would work out.

or maybe, you get a pokemon, the first pokemon you see, and you can only use that pokemon until the upcoming gym. then you have to catch another pokemon and release the one you had before.

for example, in red, you get a bulbasaur, train it, beat brock, catch a jigglypuff as the first poke you see (lucky or unlucky?). You have to release bulbasaur, use only jigglypuff, go through mt. moon, beat misty, then catch an oddish near nugget bridge, and release jigglypuff. and so on. It gets hard after the 8th gym, but at least you can basically catch pokemon from anywhere. maybe add the faint = death rule if youre feeling adventurous. but its not required. myrrhman, i challenge you to do this one!

(lots of grinding)

also, should i make a thread for this one? yes, im definitely making a thread, since i really want to participate. what should i name it?

Potential names:
This gym and this gym only
1 Pokemon 1 Gym
Solo Nuzlocke
GymSteps
Talk to the person running the main thread and he can put in a category in the first post for a solo nuzlocke.

Okay, here are two of my ideas.

The Underleveled Challenge

Basically, no grinding. That means only go into the tall grass to capture Pokemon. If you kill them by mistake, it doesn't count. Exceptions : RSE's Poochyena / Zigzagoon from the start and DP's Starly.

The Deja Vu Challenge

This is a bit harder to understand. You need a game from every region, start at Kanto and go through all of them in order, with the form of the Pokemon in there.
For instance, if I start with Squirtle in FR, then capture a Pidgey and a Ratatta, in my Silver game I'll have to use Totodile, Sentret and Hoothoot.
Of course this only applies to some Pokemon.

Just tell me what you think !
First one sounds alright, but I'm sure you would only have to battle trainers then. Second one you would have to post a list of those certain Pokemon, of course.

Hai people! its your second favorite challenger Redsaber! Now, I just started the Alpha-Fan, and now I am working on the MOST EPIC CHALLENGE ever, details will be released on this thread periodically!

Not-named challenge (codenamed Red Challenge)
Current details:
Will have some RP inputs on the thread
Why do you say that as if this section is famous or something, idgi... You should really read the announcements. I'm not allowing for anymore threads that cover a challenge for all generations. Alpha fan isn't even popular enough to get one.

You have yourself a deal. But, I have a condition. You must go through this thread, and make a list of every challenge that has been created, but not approved as a challenge. I'm going to do them all. If you do that, I'll get started as soon as I finish my Electric Monotype on Kanto.

^I'm the one running the Nuzlocke thread but Solo Nuzlocke is missing the point, I mean Nuzlocke is all about working together as a team. I'm sorry but I don't think I will allow it atm unless Sydian forces me to.

all challenges discussed, but not created.

shiny challenge
use only shinies, have to catch them legit

combined challenges
2 or more challenges combined

moveset challenges (made, but expired)
others choose the moveset

metronome challenge
metronome only (any pokemon with hacks fine)

pc claims
use whatever you've claimed on PC.

Gender ratio challenge
use only the exclusive gender. no 50/50, only 75/25, use male, or 0/100 use female.

weak run.
pokemon must have total base stats below 300 or 400

height or weight.
use pokemon with about the same height or weight.

sins
pokemon based on 7 sins

senses
pokemon based on the 5 senses

mythological creatures
pokemon based on mythological creatures

random moveset
use hacks to get a random moveset on a random pokemon

themed triplets
use triplets, like electabuzz, Magmar, and jynx

contests
use same contest type moves only

moveset
must learn newest move over oldest move

split game
play all three gen games at once, no same pokemon

restriction.
every 2nd or 3rd pokemon in the pokedex is restricted

interactive challenge
your challenge is modified by the OP.

stock market
have a team, get points based off qualifications, and trade for more points

no items
required items only. (no rods too)

youre an idiot
never have a type advantage.

6 letters
think of a 6 letter word, then use the first letter for a pokemon with the same 1st letter, the 2nd letter for a pokemon with the same second letter, and so on.

deja vu
use same parallels of pokemon in each generation (starter, vendor trash, bird vendor trash, pseudo legendary)

underleveled

Please bring scramble challenges back! they were so much fun. Others assign you a pokemon, with specific guidelines, so you had a Treecko, cannot use Mega or giga Drain, must know pound and quick attack, and a Lombre, cannot use super effective moves.

Also I just got an idea for a little cup challenge. You can breed egg moves onto your pokemon, but use only those egg moves, no level up moves or tms or hms. also no evolution.

woo i did it. hope this helps.

myrrhman agreed to do all of them, so...

also, can i take a brief moment to advertise my challenge, 1 pokemon 1 gym? its actually quite fun. really tough, especially when you catch a pokemon with a disadvantage on the next gym. and lots of grinding too. worth it, though, it makes gyms feel like an achievement.

Just did the alpha fan, sorry XD, you guys help me with it i guess?

Just submitted the challenge, first two posters on it get to be the gods!

Anyways, I like the restricted challenge. If somebody could host it (who doesn't already have a million things) that would be awesome, I think that would be a busy challenge!

I've already made an Underleveled thread.
For the Deja Vu one, I need to think of the lists of Pokemon. It's gonna take while, just grilling the Pokedex and seeing which ones match.

I would potentially help you with this. But as you can see, so many challenges.

In other news, I finally made it out of Rock Tunnel with my Electric Team (Pikachu). Gyms fell fast after that, and I caught an Electabuzz, Voltorb, and Magnemite (and Zapdos the Fly Slave). This means I should be done with the challenge soon! Also I finally have a move that does neutral damage to Rock/Ground types (Electabuzz's Psychic).

Also, Thank you Dragon. Your challenge is accepted. Grabbing laptop now to start on... Metronome Challenge/Weak Run, which will also satisfy the Combined Challenge.

btw myrhhman- what you were saying about my non evolving challenge, I saw one for FR and LG but I didn't see one for anything else. Even so, mine hasn't been posted on in a while, it might even be at the very back by now...

Well, myrrh, my list is quite done. I need to sort out Trio Legends, Pseudo Legends and other stuff.

But I could use some help ! :-D

Okay... Here are some new Underleveled rules :

2. Do not rematch trainers. That includes E4 rematches, Red rematches, Joey Rematches, etc.

3. Knocking out a wild Pokemon due to a crit. won't count. But if it happens too often, I might suspect some lying from you. ._.

4. DO NOT LIE. Levels can be easily seen when not battling against wild Pokemon, so don't try grinding then lying you didn't, okay ? (:

I think I saw a non evolving challenge here once, when I was creating this sig-chart thing. I don't know whose it was though. But I still beat a challenge without evolving, so there it is.

Just add them to the first post then. :) But what if they spam hit crit-ratio moves like Slash? 8D

Joey rematches made me lol, ngl.

That challenge still doesn't make any sense, you know. I just don't see a lot of people wanting to participate in that behemoth of a challenge. Plus, idr you even saying what game it was for. My memory could just be poor though.

I see no reason why I shouldn't be allowed to discuss my progress on my challenges here. I'm doing the Combined/Metronome/Weak Challenge, and just beat Brock on Red, and I am doing a WallaceGym/WallaceE4/Blue Monocolor on Ruby. It is going much better, and I am done with the first four gyms. Daddy is hard.

There should be an alphabet challenge. Only use pokémon from the letter of your choice. Users picking X would have to use a team full of Xatus and Unown X.

You know? One thing I really like about challenges is that they encourage you to do things you've never done before.
For instance, I've never raised Chansey or Clefairy, but I used one in Kanto and I WILL catch a Chansey in Sinnoh.
