Well it could be worse, like Darumaka's Pokedex entry, like having special droppings which are warm and keep people nice and cozy and pooey in the winter or something. :P

I think it's just the combination of these Pokemon together. They just aren't working well at all. I think I'll replace Musharna's Rain Dance with Energy Ball. I'm not in dire need of too much Rain set ups.

I remember Musharna. I had a friend who used one in a Pokemon Tournament, in which he utilized a Rain Dance strategy. He ended up coming third. Musharna may be weak, but maybe you can rely on using it as a screener or something. :3

Name it floatypuff/floatypie.

Well, I ended up scrapping Rain Dance. But...I never used Energy Ball once, which is what I replaced it with. -shrug- Musharna...was okay I guess. Alomomola beasted though. And Swanna did too, surprisingly. Here's the blog. But yeah, once I got to the E4, the team wasn't so bad. Training them was awful though, since it was a defense oriented team. But yeah.

Oh Karpman nice CAP Theme btw, I was looking forward to use one.

Oh and Syd, I know how you feel. On my 4th run of Black I went to the Elite Four with a Diva, Frillish, Musharna, Liepard, Heatmor and Vullaby and it took AGES to be at an acceptable level for the Elite Four Chapter. Ghetsis was easy though :V

I'm only on my second run of Black, which is a Favourites run, which is going well. I'm only up to Castelia City, because I'm waiting on a Vanillite egg so I can train that. :)

Anyway ladies, challenge regulars and Sydian, I have a proposal for you.


Paint Me Pretty ~ The Super Smeargle Project
Anyway, the point of this challenge project thing would be to try playing through lots of games as a community using every single move in the game, with only a few Smeargles on every team. Pretty much, we'd have a giant list with every move in the game, and Smeargle must hunt, and sketch those moves, and finish the game with them. You would be allowed to have up to 6 Smeargle, and if you choose not to use six of them, you'd be allowed to use a HM Slave. I think it would be a decent project, to try and go through every single move in the game in a giant challenge like this. :)

Would you be able to Hack/Trade a Smeargle? Other than that, look like a a decent challenge.

Also what about Dittos? Take this for account:

Smeargle vs XXXXX

Ditto vs YYYYYY

Ditto Transforms (Quick Claw?) while Smeargle sketches a move

Smeargle vs XXXXX

Smeargle vs YYYYY

Basically, you can do Wifi battles to sketch and stuff. You know for the players who don't have Smeargles.

I don't understand what you mean. Like using a Ditto as a replacement for Smeargle? I don't know, but I'll go with no for this.

As much as I love Smeargle, I am not about to hunt down every move in the game. ;-;

Are you saying that you're afraid of a little challenge? I expected more from you. And it wouldn't be that everyone has to find every single move on their own, but it would be a project, where we work together to try and get all the moves on those Smeargle!

I'd so totally be up for us starting to do big community or board wide project-challenge things. Counting this Smeargle one, I can currently think of four. Also, if anyone has minecraft, that's #5. (I'm recreating the Kanto map on minecraft, and if anyone wants to help me, i'd love you forever).

I'd be up for the Minecraft recreation of Kanto, but you see, Minecraft lags severely on my computer, even with Minecraft's graphics.

Swablu~<3

She's like a Swab, that's blue :D

I'd be up for the Minecraft project, but I don't have the game, and if I recall correctly you must 'pay to play'?

Its not as bad as you think actually. I just built all of Viridian City in about a day. The hardest part is if you have to build a city or something, and it happens to be over an ocean. Building things in mountains isn't bad, because you can TNT your way to victory. (We're hacking in the stuff, because that's a whole bunch of stuff to not be hacking in...)

It sorta gets easier as you go, because you sort of learn how the buildings look and stuff.

I'm gonna write my next update, which is for when I fight Elesa. After that, don't expect any huge updates from me, where I detail everything. I'm now trying to get through the game as fast as I can, so I can do other things (breeding etc.).

I'm already barely interested in the challenges I'm doing right now, plus I have classes starting next month (what happened to summer? -sigh-) and hopefully a job soon and I have other sections and ahh! -eats chocolate-

That being said, I'm trying to run and hurry up with Ruby. I've got 5 badges and I'm underlevel cause I just haven't felt like level grinding. D; Bleh. /drained

I'd say just try to take some challenges slow if I were you. I mean, with my Red challenge (body), I'm not playing it all the time, but I'm making slow progress. I have a Gloom on there now, which is nice. :)

That's too bad about your grandfather, jespoke. I hope you feel better about him soon. But it's good for the Minecraft thing. I wouldn't mind helping out on the Kanto thing, if I had a decent-ish computer.

Anyway, my favourites challenge is going well. I trained Pinkie Pie in Twist Mountain, which was good. I spent two days abusing Audino, and I now have the ice badge whatever you call it. I'm hoping for a team around the level 50~ mark before I fight Drayden, and hopefully Espresso evolves soon. :)


Another thing which has nothing to do with my current challenge, but how about a new challenge (gee, that's new). I was thinking something along the lines of similar to the preparation of the favourites challenge, yet similar to the random Pokemon challenge. What you would do, is using a random Pokemon generator, or if you can be bothered thinking of it yourself, create a list of I'd say about 20-30 Pokemon, and then someone else chooses between 4-6 random numbers from there, and that person has to use the Pokemon listed in that order. So if you had in your list say, Sawsbuck, Flareon and Lairon in that order, and someone game you the number two, then you'd have to use a Flareon on your team.

Does that make sense?

I'm glad another one of my Swablus have come back to the nest. I think that'll be the code name for challengers now. Swablu...because I said something to InfernoRogue about being under my wing and she thought of Mantine and Remoraid, but then I wanted to be fluffy or something so then I thought of Altaria and Swablu lmao.
