It'd still be hard. You'd have to use a Pokemon from Kanto though, so you can use it for every Generation. If you do go ahead with it, use an Oddish or something.

And I thought something like Monotype Water Nuzlocke would be hard in Hoenn. :(

Or Zubat. He's in all the games. But good luck getting him past the Rock Gym that is the first gym in 3/4 of the games.

I think something like an Exeggutor solo-speed run could go well or something. I'd do it in Sinnoh, but I really don't like that place and it's awfully terrible there. Sinnoh is something you don't want to go through several times. D:

As for my Nuzlocke, I just arrived in Mauville. Azumarill pretty much solo'd Brendan. :D

I did catch a Pokemon there, but I wasn't even thinking about you at the time, unless you wouldn't mind being known as an Oddish called Bag O'Weed... xD

As for my challenges... I'm beginning my Quartz Nuzlocke. I won't name abominati- err, I mean, Baromo- Pokemon after you since... it will be pretty difficult to describe how they look like. And I suppose some of you never played Quartz.
...If you get a Tigat, name it after me...

What? Am I seriously the only one that likes the Quartz pokemon?
Some of 'em are sorta cool.

Ahem, I have been doing a lot of hack monotype CHALLENGES recently.

Quartz - Dark
Topaz - Fire
Ruby Destiny - Reign of Legends - Ghost
Flora Sky - Electric
Brown - Bug

Like I've said, I've never seen a Quartz Pokemon, nor have I ever played the game. Hacks don't really interest me, especially if they're based off of Firered/Leafgreen. I don't know why, but those graphics really tick me off. I know graphics don't make a game, but it's just a weird quirk that I have.

Also I'm thinking of taking on another challenge later or soon, depending on when I start my Dexter Challenge, so recommendations? I'm thinking either Zodiac or word, but it would be hard, considering with all the new Orphicius or whatever crap.

You know what else ticks me off? When OPs don;t update a challenge list for a month. I'm looking at you, mryyh, alakazam. Is once every two weeks too much to ask? I don't own any of these threads, so is this too much to ask? and yes, I'm really asking. I want to make sure that the peeve I have right now should in fact be a peeve.

I don't even know the last time Nuzlocke was updated. There are a few more champions I would like to see listed there whom have all finished the quest. :D

This is why I don't even make lists. And when I did, what pissed me off was members that nagged me about updating it. With that said, please don't do it. Those are some of the biggest threads in the section, and they don't need members breathing down their necks about updating a list. It's not like it really matters if you're on a list. You're doing the challenge and updating in the thread. I'd say that's proof enough that you're participating.

Sorry, I just felt like I needed to say something on that subject, since I know I hate getting nagged about lists and other things. You know, we all do have things to do outside of PC and challenges.

Okay, thanks. It's really not that big a deal for me, now that I think about it, but I also hate other people posting that "I'm not on the list yet! What gives?" rather than using VMs or PMs. Anyway, I try not to nag too much. No more posts on this subject are needed, guys. The question is asked and answered.

That in mind too, I hate when people fill up the first page with questions. :( Most of the time, I even explicitly say "if you have questions, please VM/PM me" but nooooo. If you don't read that, then chances are you didn't even read the rules. People get so crazy. I just like my challenge threads to stay as sign ups and updates for cleanliness and organization. ;o;

If you're playing on a Rom, you could either google for Gameshark codes and eventually, after a ton of annoying ones about shiny level 100 legendaries that know as many variations of Hyper Beam as there are in the game (oh wait, this is Silver, so it will be different about that...but not better) eventually find the only thing that matters: The wild Pokemon modifier codes. Takes 5-10 minutes to figure out how they work, and, voila, you'll find a wild Charmander.
Or you could go to Swampert Tools (a site for hacking tools), and look for the GSC Starter Editor (should be called StartEdGSC.exe). Can't do anything wrong with this one.
If you're playing on a cartridge, I have no idea what to do though.

To add to the current discussion... Iirc when I was the OP of a challenge thread a year ago or so, I updated it very frequently, but in the end this only led to the list of participants being HUGE, because more often than not people start a challenge, and forget about it soon after. I'm not blaming anyone, I'm doing such things myself a lot, especially recently. So, by now I'm thinking there's no point in having a participants list in a challenge thread.

Well, my Physics lab got cancelled today. So I'm home a good 3 hours early. Might as well make good use of this and update.

What I've done some of the time is just update to the past month with people that are doing the challenge, and update everyone that has beaten the challenge. Because I think that if you haven't posted in a month, you've probably forgotten about the challenge.

Edit: and I call Crobat.

Figuring my Story Run had Marril in it I chooise Azumarril.

Oh and I love the Darkrai theme Syd.

I was at the Nuzzy Server on PO today and with a bit of advice I'm now going to be doing a Shuckle Nuzlocke Solo on B/W. Though I'm allowed to hack in my Moveset: toxic, EQ, Encore, Power Trick

Opinions?
