I went to the RP corner once, and I didn't like it at all. There's so many tl;dr posts there. I might give it a go again if I don't have to write essays all the time. As for minecraft, as soon as I get a better graphics card, I'll play it more. :) And challenges, are postponed for now, but I'll most likely be taking up my Solo and Nuzlocke again when I start taking them again. Body can wait it's turn. :P

Thanks, person that randomly posts a challenge idea and disappears from here for about two months! lol

Masuda method and speech class are distracting me. The only PC challenge I'm doing is my favorite challenge, and even then it's boring me, cause I just don't wanna grind. Curse me for having weak favorites. D; That in mind though 560, you don't have to finish your favorite challenge, since that's on Platinum. The favorite challenge is BW only now. :x

Just 4 more daaaaaays. Then I can do challenges all day! lol
I feel kind of accomplished today. Did quite a few solos this weekend. I'm up to 25/151 now. :D That, and I decided to try my hand at doing all of the Ultimate Monotype Challenges too. Needless to say, I'm going to be quite busy during the summer, challenge-wise.

I might do a grass monotype on Sapphire. Also I wish I knew how to RNG. Also PC on the 3DS ftw!

Might make this real. It's just another Nuzlocke. Documenting this here.
  1. Set the battle mode on Set (you cannot switch after you defeat an enemy).
  2. Do not capture any Pokemon if you do not have an empty slot in your team.
  3. Defeat all legendaries. That's right. Defeat them.
  4. Capture only one Pokemon per route / area. This Pokemon must be the first one encountered, even if you already have it. If you fail to capture it, you cannot capture anymore Pokemon in that area.
  5. Nickname all captured Pokemon.
  6. No deleting HMs. Ever.
  7. Do not use items other than X-items and assorted Poke Balls. Heal Balls are okay.
  8. To heal, you must use the Pokemon Center. Follow these steps:
    • Before healing, count the number of injured Pokemon (Pokemon that are not at max HP, even if it's just 1 damage; Pokemon that have a harmful status).
    • Purchase items from the PokeMart equal to the number of injured Pokemon:
      • 0 Badges: Free
      • 1 Badge: Buy Potions
      • 3 Badges: Buy Super Potions
      • 5 Badges: Buy Hyper Potions
      • 7 Badges: Buy Max Potions
      • 8 Badges: Buy Full Restores
    • Do not under any circumstances use these potions.
    • If you don't have enough money, suck it up and get some.
  9. Do not ever use a Nurse / Doctor NPC to heal more than once. Do not use the optional lodgings.
  10. Only box a Pokemon that is fully healed. If it isn't, then consider it dead. Release it. If healing is too expensive, you can kill off your Pokemon to cheapen the cost for the rest of your party.
  11. If a Pokemon faints, it dies. Release it.
  12. All Pokemon faint? Game over. Restart.

It's a Nuzlocke so it follows similar rules to all other Nuzlockes. I just put down which extra rules I wanted to have. You're supposed to do them all at once.

No one said it was any different to a Nuzlocke challenge. All he said was that those are the rules he wanted to follow, with the main, and optional rules, which I think is a good reference for when he decides to take it in the future.

Although when I started my Nuzlocke, I read one of the rules as you're only allowed to catch one Pokemon in every area, not the first one you see. Since that's what the rule said in the thread, I'm sticking to it.

Yay for me passing English with a 12 at my exam today :D

Danish grades system (obviously from bad to good :D): -3, 00, 02, 4, 7, 10, 12
(Zero and minus in front imply that the grade sucks )

@jespoke: Gratz on your grade. I'm from Denmark as well so I know the grades

On an other note I'm getting tired of people not updating in the Scambled challenge since I don't want to double post to tell that I finished it.

Hiya guys, finally back! School's over, I'm working now, but I still have some free time.
And, I'm back with a purpose for a new challenge!

The Underestimate's Challenge

This challenge gives you the possibility to use Pokèmon that are underestimated, to say, Dunsparce, Shuckle, and similar. Obviously you can use your common sense to choose the ones to use, just avoid using things like Charizard, Mewtwo and others.
Maybe I'll provide a list made by myself of all the Pokèmon to choose, then it's your choice (if you like), or you can still have an inspiration from that, and then add some personal choices, out of the list.
So here are the rules!

1. You can use only Pokèmon that are, like the title says, underestimated. (List under the rules, if it will be)
2. Obviously, no Legendaries. You can still catch them, if you like.
3. Hacking is allowed before you get your second Gym Badge.
4. Egg trading is allowed.
5. HM Slaves are also allowed.
6. You defeat the game according the following conditions:
- R/B/Y/G/S/C/Ru/Sa/E/D/P/B/W: Defeat the Pokèmon League champion.
- FR/LG/Pt: Defeat the Pokèmon League champion twice.
- HG/SS: Defeat the Pokèmon League champion twice, and also Red.
- Colosseum/XD: Finish the main story (Someone help me with this, just to point the
finishing line).

What do you say?

It seems like a nice challenge, but you'd probably need to compile a list of all the Pokemon which are considered underestimated, since people could go by like, NU standards in competitive battling, which is where Pokemon like Charizard and Exeggutor are.

Actually, Exeggutor is UU, but whatever. A list is needed, and people can suggest ones that aren't there, so you can add more as needed.

yes im going to unequipt his item before the battle despite that he will probably still be lower

i still have a few gym badges to go(4) and heracross is level 87
what move set should i use
thinking of
brick break
aerial ace
stone edge(to replace its current mega horn)
either shadow claw or earthquake

Well, using slaves to heal is fine, although I try not to do that. Against Red, though it might be needed.

Also, keep Megahorn (its more powerful than Aerial Ace even when resisted), replace Aerial Ace with Stone Edge/Rock Slide (Rock Slide will OHKO Charizard, so it's the better option against Red with it's higher accuracy and PP), and EQ is decent (no Shadow Claw for Red, but you can use it in the interim for ghosts), but Swords Dance is a great move there too, as EQ isn't really needed for coverage, and it will let you sweep Red without worrying about not OHKOing anybody as long as you outspeed them. Also, Close Combat should be in your final moveset, BB is good for now b/c of PP issues.

I assume you are in Kanto already, so I dunno why you are fighting Lance again...use the power bracer on low level Pokemon, although you should have max EVs by now.

as for an item, I would equip Leftovers against Red to counteract the Hail so you don't die from it.

In other news...I am so tired of R/B/Y now. I've played it 26 times (I've currently completed 26/151 solos) over the course of a few months. I really want to go play my Flying Monotype on Crystal right now, but I also want to get these solos done asap. Indecision! D:

I'm soloing R/B/Y with all of the original 151 Pokemon. I already did the legends, it's just the Pokemon that don't evolve that make it a little more...bleh. There's no everstone for them to hold (you can't even hold items in those games anyway), so I have to be super careful with the B button when I'm trying to grind.
Yeah...that and redundancy is terrible. I did one solo yesterday (Vulpix) and afterwards, I felt like I didn't want to play that game for a very long time...and my goal is to complete them all by the end of the summer break.

Oh hey, I'm back after a month or so...

Many things have been going on, including but not limited to:

Me getting a job
Me going on vacation to Charelston
My girlfriend getting a super awesome job, where she basically gets to travel the US and get free travel, meals, and hotels. And she gets paid to watch little kids while their parents are at conventions. ON TOP OF THAT she gets to take someone with her (wouldn't want employees to get lonely, would we) so I'm with her going to Alaska and Hawaii and places. Not gonna lie, its pretty awesome.
My trivia team getting invited to the trivia championships and getting 3rd place (worth $500 split 4 ways).
A friend and I getting every single artifact on Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles. That's a whole bunch of grinding. At the end, we were getting like one artifact every two hours of gameplay. It was ridiculous.
Probably other stuff that I can't remember.

So, as you can see, I've had a pretty full summer so far. But, hopefully I'll be able to get back to my Pokemon playing. I've started working on an old fashioned Catch 'em All challenge for Blue. I have at least the basic form of every obtainable Pokemon in the game, now I have to play through Red a few times to get Blastoise/Charizard, Vaporeon/Flareon, and the Version Exclusives. Then I just have to grind grind grind and I'll be done!
