From what I know, there is not going to be an event challenge this month. We just had one last month so Sydian wants to have a little time between them. I am glad, personally. If we had another event so soon it surely would have eaten up the time I spend on challenges, just like the Valentines day one did. I am glad to have some time again where I can just focus on my normal challenges.

Also, my German Soul Silver is on its way now! I plan on using it to continue my Ultimate Bug Monotype. Should be interesting reading all those Pokemon names in German.

We had a St. Patrick's event in 2011 (first challenge event) and we're already about a week into March, so obviously there isn't an event for St. Patrick's Day. I always start events at the beginning of the month, so if there isn't one by then, there won't be one later in the middle of the month. The next known event is in August. idk if I'll have anything in between.

Aww, alright

I just loved the Valentine's challenge, you put so much effort into it and the requirements for each Pokemon were just really great. That's why I'm pretty much hyped for the next challenge you'll make, they're just so great :C

If we are to have an event it should be easter! Although that's also too close, isn't it? :(

Shame since I had a pretty good idea in mind haha

I don't know if it's only the mods that are allowed to make events, but if everyone is allowed to make one, you should totally do your challenge Golurk, I'm pretty sure it would be a real hit like the love in the Cloud challenge.

You have to get Syd's permission to use the Event prefix. It's in the Challenges rules.

Hm well first we need to see if my idea would garner interest.

My idea was it'd be an Egg Challenge

Where you breed a bunch of eggs of different pokemon, and then pick 6 and trade them over, or hack in six eggs (or if either of those are too complicated, then the second part works fine). never mind that makes things too difficult. (or it could be a bonus rule? Bah.)

One pokemon would be the Sunny Side Up Pokemon which would always have to be the first pokemon in your party, or the highest leveled or something.

Another would be the Chocolate Egg Pokemon, and it would just have to know three cutesy moves (like charm, or attract or actually maybe just a move that is a "cute" contest move)

There would also be the Omelet Pokemon which would have to know an egg related move like soft-boiled or egg bomb, and wouldn't be allowed to have two moves of the same type.

Next there would be a Hard Boiled Pokemon which would have to be egg shaped, (so azumarill, chansey, elekid, exeggcutor...) and could only use physical attacking moves

Also you'd have a Scrambled Egg Pokemon which would have to learn 3 supporting moves, and all moves would have to be of different types.

And lastly would be the Deviled Egg Pokemon which would have to know 3 "evil moves" like Nasty Plot, Beat Up, Confuse Ray, Trick, Toxic.... (or even energy draining moves) and had to be Dark, Ghost, Poison or Bug (and maybe Fire?)

Sound interesting?

Easter is this month though and we're not having one this month. April is bad too. While some schools have finals in May, some have them in April, like mine. And I wouldn't be able to give the thread and event in general my full attention. I'm fine with suggestions from members, but the event would still need me. lol So don't count on an April or May challenge. ;( Nothing wrong with your idea, it's just unfortunate Easter falls this time of the year to where an event for it would get in the way with a lot of peoples' school work, especially those of us in college/uni or any high school seniors we may have.

I'm in the same boat. Senior year is coming to a close so I have a lot of stuff to do ;_; I also need a summer job and I don't even know where I'm going to school next year.

On another note, I am almost finished with my favorites challenge! I'm also part-way through my ultimate green monocolor run so I'm actually gonna be finishing up challenges (as is my new years resolution).

I don't know if this is the place to says this, but I just have to let it out, in my username challenge, I'm using Ivysaur until I get a Jynx or a Lickitung. My Ivysaur is already level 40-ish~ and I'm up to the part where I wake up the Snorlax. I can't tell you how many trainers I skipped on purpose so that I can battle them when I get my Jynx/Lickitung @_@

I remember when I did a challenge where the first Pokémon I could use wasn't till later in the game, I put so much effort into skipping people so I could re-battle later.

More of y'all should show up in #swablunest. It gets awfully lonely sometimes! Perhaps I should make an emblem for it.

I've been in #swablunest since the beginning of time. :3c
...even though I only started doing challenges like three days ago BUT WHATEVER MAN

Oh but wow I am trying to train up a Magikarp on HG right now and I do not understand how I did this before. Like I've had a Magikarp -> Gyarados on like every other playthrough of any Pokémon game and I don't remember training it ever being this frickin difficult/tedious/painful. How did I manage it so many times in the past?!

In my water monotype for blue version, I only had gyarados and wartortle until after waking snorlax, and both of them are in the high 30s. I'm adding two new members now though, and I even managed to skip almost every trainer in Pokemon tower.

I am almost always in #swablunest, as Syd knows, and it really does get lonely in there.

It doesn't help that I'm in central time zone, I suppose lol. ;( If more people would go in throughout the day, I think that'd help. But time zones are an issue, yeah. I usually just leave the chat up when I'm online whether no one's there or not.

I leave the chat up whether I'm there or not haha. Mainly because I just leave my computer on until it forces me to restart it and I forget about the chat for weeks if I close it.

I usually leave myself in there if I sign on during mornings (which is usually only Tuesdays and Thursdays). I sometimes sign on from my phone as Petilil, but no one is in there when I do that haha.
