-While unlikely, you may accidentaly pick a wrong move.
-It's a personal preference.

Anyway, I'll give way to this situation to fly back and forth. It;s just that in most games, there's a PC in the lobby. Wasn't aware this wasn't the case in Gen. I. But only for flying, it cannot be switched in at all.

(P.S. The only reason emulators are allowed at all (though strongly discouraged) is because some of the older games may have died, so that the save battery doesn't work and such. In those cases only I'd allow people to use an emulator that is an exact copy of the official game.)
Understood. I'll refrain from speeding.

Thanks for the Fly rule. Its not that there's not a PC in the lobby, its that there isn't one in all of Pallet Town (you have one in your room but you can only withdraw/deposit items.)

Oh yes, of course. Forgot about that. I'll give you permission to use a Fly slave, just and only to Fly there .

Joshawott, I need a question answered before I put your Pidgey back up. How much did it level up in the process? What was it's beginning, and end level. That's all, thanks.

But just to make sure, this IS the 2nd time, correct? After you've obtained all 16 badges. I assume so, seeing you have a level 100.
Yep. I got all 16 badges a long time ago, and the bellossom was traded from diamond where it hatched.

I tried the challenge Ninetails in pokemon black and I lost to Grimsley's Sharpedo. He wiped me out with waterfall. At I know know that metal powder only works with ditto. I'll try it with another one with energy ball sometime or grind some more.

Okay, I watched it However, there is one thing I need to know before you can be confirmed.
How did you obtain that Blastoise? It's not a starter on that game. Please be honest here, as if it was obtained via hacking, even if early on in the game, it is disqualified.

I hacked it in as a starter at the very start of the game. I got it because I was ( still am technically ) doing an ultimate solo run with Blastoise throughout all five generations. If it's disqualified because of that then I'm sorry, but that's pretty stupid. I've raised it from level 5 legitly with nothing to help me and no extra items.

This is understandable. However, the rules clearly show that hacked-in Pokemon are not allowed to be used. Sorry.

We can trade, right? So if I want to do a Charizard solo in Silver, I can get a Charmander in Red and then trade it to Silver, right?

Yes, that's 100% perfectly fine.
But how? Do you have both Red and Silver or something?

Sorry, I'll just go around telling every challenge that it's illegal to hack in a pokemon and train it up legitly. You're sounding like an absolute *CENSORED*. How the hell can I trade a Squirtle into Crystal? For one thing, I don't own the game, secondly, I cant trade on an emulator. Thirdly, I have nobody to trade with even if I did have it.

-Abosolutely no cheating, and/or hacking. This means all Pokemon must be legit, along with moves and stats. Gameplay cheats such as speed enhancements, etc. are also not allowed. (Emulators are most definantly not prefered and highly discouraged.) Traded Pokemon, of course, are allowed (and so is migrating); but Pokemon obtained via hacking are not allowed to be used. Please be honest here.
That's why. It's the same reason I didn't allow myrrhman's Snorlax. This is one of the reasons emulators are discouraged- you can't trade on them.
In your situation, I suppose you simply cannot do Johto with your Blastoise.
But remember, you can still do other regions and do it with other Pokemon, as long as the Pokemon was legitly obtained. Really, it's nothing personal; just the rules of this challenge.

This is mainly to prevent people from starting ridiculously convoluted or hard challenges "because somebody might try it". If you start one, you must join it as well. If you have a good idea for a challenge but you can't join it for some reason, you may post it on the Challenge Ideas thread, so anybody who wants to try it can start their own thread. This is the most commonly broken rule guys, so let's try to fix that!

Haha, sure. But I can only vagely remember it, since I did it last year... maybe 2 or 3. Anyway, it was a Charizard only solo-run, and I beat the Elite 4 over and over with it after the game. It usually went like this:

My Charizard knew: Fly, Blast Burn, [Wing Attack], [Flamethrower]. I took out the Ice member by spamming Fly, and an occasional Wing Attack. She was never easy because of the type advantage(s). I may need to use an item or 2 during that battle. From there, I Flamthrowered Bruno, he wasn't TOO hard, usually. Heal up. By now, I'm low on PP somewhat. I would get to Agatha, and maybe use some Blast Burn, as well as some of the others. She was the easiest. Then came Lance... well, by now I'm low on PP. And Fire is "not very effective" against dragon. Usually, I'd manage, but I may use a Struggle or 2 towards the end. Most times, by the time I get to Blue's 2 Pokemon, I struggle away! But with the help of Full Restores and being a level 100, I manage to win. I did it a multiple times, so the adventure slightly varied.

Tadaa!

P.S. I'm currently training multiple Pokemon which I plan to (re-)do this challenge with, so I'm not done yet. They just need some training

Okay, just making sure. I don't like people posting challenges that they've already done in attempt to get around that rule. They have to go through it alongside other challengers. Carry on then.

Oh... well, to be completely honest, I should mention that I'm training... 40 Pokemon. However, it looks like only 35 will be good enough to do it. These are:
Venusaur, Beedrill, Pideot, Fearow, Vileplume, Parasect, Poliwrath, Tentacruel, Magneton, Dodrio, Dewgong, Cloyster, Exeggutor, Lapras, Omastar, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Dragonite, Togetic, Xatu, Jumpluff, Quagsire, Murkrow, Skarmory, Tyranitar, Nidoqueen, Rhydon, Gyarados, Aerodactyl, Crobat, Qwilifish, and Piloswine.
This is on my FireRed.
While it may be a while until all of them are good enough, once they all are, I'll have 35 registrations coming in at once all within a month. Though it may be a while until that point comes. I'll log all of the challenges though.
Some Pokemon can do it earlier, such as Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres; while some may need higher levels, such as Qwilifish. But all of these are on my Agenda, and are currently undergoing training.

Please state how you got it.

What's TGB dual? Forgive me, I'm not familiar with emulators; I prefer the actual games. Did you trade with someon else who had an emulator?

Its basically an emulator that lets you trade. So you just get a Red ROM and a Silver ROM (or you can even use the same game) and you can trade with yourself.

Well, since trading with one's self is possible with the real games, I'll let it slide with emulators as well- but not with the same game. If I have 1 DS and 1 White, I can't trade with myself. So 2 copies are needed to trade with oneself. I'll allow it since you did that, with Red and Silver. Once I get the chance, I'll view it and post it as well

Is it necessary to have a video of the battles? Or would a picture of the "Congratulations!" part suffice?
