I've deleted the rule that makes it far too hard for any mortal man. I also changed the rules so that they are far less astringent on anyone with the patience to survive to the 8th Gym.

Noob out.

The challenge doesn't really seem all that good. The only thing I can see about it that really makes it a challenge, is that you have to only use Pokemon from the first route in the game, which is essentially the Second City challenge, which is kind of pointless.

Maybe something else for that dream themes challenge. I'd call it the Rainbow challenge. Essentially, you'd play the game like a rainbow.
- You must have six Pokemon in your team. They must all be Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple.
- You must catch them in order of the rainbow.
- - - If, for some reason you can't find a red Pokemon early in the game, you can choose another colour to start with, such as blue, but it must still be in order (so if you start with blue, you must go purple, red etc.)
- One of your Pokemon must be able to learn Rain Dance or Sunny Day via level.
- - - If you're playing R/B/Y where weather didn't exist, then two of your Pokemon must be able to learn Ember and Water Gun.
- In addition to the colours, 1 of your Pokemon must be in the Plant type Egg Group.
- Heavy fire type moves (base 80+) are banned from this challenge. You don't want a heat wave during the rainbow, do you?
- Ghost/Dark types are banned from this challenge, as they will darken the rainbow which you have created.

I see. So perhaps this could be a more of an extremist version of the second city challenge. Except... It's really not. Meh.

You got me there, but just for the sake of the challenge I would say it is the King when you first capture it, that way people can't smack an Everstone on it until the Elite Four to make it immune to Check/Checkmate.

If you did want to toss this one my way I'd add it to my forum, but it's pretty unique and challenging at that. At first I thought it'd be another simple color clause that always plaque me, but the fact that it has to be done in order definitely limits team choices making it a challenge.

>: I almost wanna do this on a R/S/E team, but than i'd be stuck with an N/F/E Wurmple

So the Weather Water Gun/Ember thing they just have to be a learnable move, or are they required to have it in their sets

Oh also am in love with the Chess idea D:

I wouldn't go as far as adding it into your sets, but I guess that could be an extra rule if you wish to restrict yourself more. It should be added that two Pokemon must be able to learn the seperate moves.

Maybe Castform can be the Rainbow King/Queen, and thus can be a wildcard for any Pokemon. :)

Yeah, there's a lot of really good challenges that are coming up nowadays. It helps me, because it makes me finish my monos so that I can get to those other challenges that seem so fun.

I'm getting close to finishing Black so I can revamp the Favorite Challenge. Already wrote my new list of favorites...gunna require lots of transferring and trading though, depending on the types I'm assigned. So idk HOW this will work for others, cause I've figured out how I'mma do it. But there will be an alternate way to participate. :x But it limits you to just Unova Pokemon and only listing 1 Pokemon in each type. It shouldn't be too bad though. Also gotta write in a new rule for Rotom, since it's now more than Ghost/Electric. I'm thinking that if it's assigned as an Electric, you will be allowed to change forms, but if it's assigned as a Ghost, you can't, since now it loses its Ghost typing upon form changing. And then Arceus won't be allowed to form change, on the off chance someone gets it...

Off topic but I just wanted to let you know I love The Mars Volta. That is all. okgobye.

I really wanna compete in the Chess one but it will have to wait until after I beat Trio species, which might take a while because this team kinda sucks. Breloom does all the work carrying these suckas :p

I feel guilty about my Dream Theme challenge as though I beat some sort of system by having challenges within a challenge D: so I will strictly stay to themey things and stay away from number limit thingys. That and now I feel like it's my job to complete all the challenges in that thread, and this will take a while

;_; hopefully the badges system will make it awesome and fun though cause that is more about what themes are rather than struggle

Oh, and 8 days til I get a DS and Laure is rocking 4th and 5th gen again D:

I still have my eyes on starting that egg challenge as well

Wow, Chess Challenge does seem quite fun, ngl. Anyhow, I saw a bit of dicussion about emulators on the previous page and the thought of hacking tools came up. So, have you guys ever used a hacking tool to complete a challenge, and if so, which ones? I've used YAPE and the 4th/5th Gen Evolution Editor to evolve things like Gigalith, A-Starter for a Larvitar solo run, and A-Map, as well as the Advanced Series, so that I could use a Sandile in FireRed.

I use Pokesav mostly when I need to evolve stuff in HG/SS or D/P/Pt that require trades, although I haven't done it for a while. That last time I did that was for a Bug run on Platinum when I evolved Scyther into Scizor once I got the Metal Coat.

What does YAPE do, and where can I get the evo editor?

YAPE is basically a 3rd gen Pokemon editor (e.g. edits evolution methods, level up moves, Pokedex entry, etc.).

There's a 4/5th Gen Evo Editor 0_0........want :X

I also saw something while skimming through this thread about a tournament planned for the summer?

Is their a Pokesav equivalent for the gba games. Gameshark annoys me D:

Not for editing save files. I know there's a Pokemon Maker thingy for the Gen III games (although you almost have to make eggs so the IDs match), but Pokesav is for Gen IV and V games only unfortunately.

I use PokeGen....alot.

When ever I want to do a happiness evolution I just put it's Happiness at max so I won't waste time, I mean it isn't cheating, because if it was on a DS I would have done 30,000 laps around Hearthome anyways.

I also do challenge revolving around PokeGen like a Nuzlocke where I have to have a RNG'd Team of GenI Pokemon,GenII Pokemon,GenIII Pokemon, GenIV Pokemon, Gen V Pokemon, and Legendary. Then if one dies I have to RNG another one for it's region, oh and no cross gen evolutions like Scizor or Mamoswine.

Also, I want to post my Chess Updates so bad, but I'm the thread owner, and no one posted yet, and you can't double post on PC unless your Sydian so yeah I'm dissapointed.

Gah I can't resist don't worry I'll post now even though I have no clue what game I'm going to use yet. Probably stick to my computer though D: man I'm addicted to the spacebar when using GBA despite how much I love being away from the computer and just lounging around using my iPhone as a gba

Man I can't wait til I get a DS ;_;
and hit those garage sales where I find all the older Pokemon games a dime a dozen

but spacebar I will miss you

I post cool challenges from here on Tumblr sometimes to try and get my friends to come here and join, so I don't look like a loser on Twitter anymore, and I think one of my friends might wanna play Chess

He said something about how cool it would be with B/W Pokemon, not Gen 5 but the actual colors, but I don't think there is enough to ever pull that off for a Chess theme lol, like if 3 had to be black and 3 white

Hmm has anyone created a "Purity Monotype Challenge" yet? By this I mean monotype but no dual types are allowed? Cause I think this would be interesting
