I just hope that importing Pokemon will be possible, or else building teams is gonna be difficult for quite a while.

I notice that I'm spending a lot less time on this site. I think its because
A) I'm mostly spending time on Reddit, moderating my subreddit
B) I'm on What-do-you-do.net, and we are somewhat planning to build our own RPG about out forum.
C) Midterms, nuff said.

So please, excuse my absence.

This Hall of Fame Challenge team will be really hard. I only have one Pokémon that isn't weak to fire and flying.

This is true. We now have an opportunity for a starter monotype challenge. Should be interesting.

In other news, a small number of people have been popping into the challenge irc! I am still the only one there regularly though. So come hang out guys! I won't bite... Much...

@Honeyman: Don't worry about not being too active here. :) You may leave for a year and come back and I'd still remember you. XD

Anyway, I don't think they'd make trading and importing difficult for us...at least I'd hope not. They haven't blocked us from importing Pokemon for the past few generations, idk how this one would be different, unless they change some major systems like EVs/IVs and such. Which I hope they don't, because that'd mean relearning the system and most likely no importing. :/

ps: necrum doesn't bite he pecks

pss: i'll try to be in #swablunest tonight after dinner yay

Just one question (I'm terribly sorry if you have answered this before Sydian): When is the next Event Challenge? I wanted to participate in the Stocking Stuffer Challenge, but sadly I never got around to it. But anywho, I will definitely sign-up for the next one!

btw, is my sig ok now?

You're too late to ask for Mardi Gras event now though! I have something planned next month that I wanted to do last year, but something came up so I couldn't post it. Sorry. D: Next year we should have one though. Definitely.

Awesome! sign-me up! :D Wait, so like 2014? Could it have something to do with X and Y? #speculation

Yeah, I guess Mardi Gras challenge will have to wait till 2014 lol. Trust me. Time goes by quick. We'll be there in no time.

Wildy is close, haha. It is a Valentine's Day challenge, but Luvdisc is not gonna be a team requirement. XD

Neither of those, actually. ;) And idk if it will be monotypeable. It would be difficult to have it sorted in such a way that you could.

I'm sure if you plan your game and team carefully after I post it, you'll find a way to integrate a monotype in there. :P

Are we going to have that event to celebrate your birthday? We could use all your favourites. Is the Valentine's one the one where you said we would use other member's favourites, or was that later?

There's a Pokemon you have to have that can fall into that category, but there are other options that don't require picking a friend. I'm sure most people will though, myself included. That's all the spoiling for now!

It'd be awesome to have an event around my birthday, haha. AlexOzzyCake made me a Christmas present which is basically a challenge centered around me, and I told him I might use that for an event some time. Only thing about my birthday is that it's in August and I start band camp then, so I'm busy. But oh well, I might do that anyway. Though the way he set up the challenge requires a gen V game to be played and I like the events to at least include one game from each gen if possible. Hm. Perhaps I can change the rules a little to allow more flexibility. It wouldn't hurt his feelings. AND. I turn 21 this year, so what a great year to have a Syd's Birthday Challenge. :P

Way to ruin my fun Miss We-Love-Mardi-Gras. I had my idea for my challenge earlier, but I got busy at work and couldn't post for a while. Mind you Mardi Gras is actually a really long event. But I guess I'll have to tuck my idea away and hope I remember it a year from now.

Update to Project Perfect Pokemon (P3 Challenge):

Blue: Done!
Silver: 150ish out of 251 caught!
Stadium: In Round 2, only Giovanni, the Elite Four, and Mewtwo remain!
Stadium 2: I think I beat a Gym maybe?
Sapphire: 25 caught, but I've beaten the Elite Four. Let the catching spree commence! (Also I have Feebas already lol).
LeafGreen: 62 caught, but I've beaten the Elite Four, and gotten the Ruby and Sapphire, so I can trade to Sapphire! Got a Paras (Now I just need a Scyther or Zangoose and I'll have my Spore/False Swipe Breloom!)
Conquest: I'm not starting over a new game for this one, but I'm about halfway done with the campaigns. After I beat them all I'll start working on getting perfect links with all the warlords.

You gotta wait till the thread is up! I'm not saying anything else about the event next month. :)

I don't think that was included in his challenge...hahaha. Trying to think of a drunk Pokemon now. Slaking comes to mind. He looks drunk. Then he's screwing around every other turn doing drunk things.
