Welcome back, Zorogami! :) I saw you posting around and got excited like, "Hey that's one of my birds!" lmao. Not much has changed around here since you were last active I'm sure. :P

Welcome back!

Hey guys, the dust is starting to settle now with me getting settled into my new home, and getting my Trade Shop back up to full speed, so I'll be trying to get my Challenge threads updated. I just hope you guys didn't leave me TOO much work, lmao.

I'm sure you have a buttload. ;) I need to check all my threads tbh, though normally when I do, it's just people updating so it's nothing to write home about. I think my Gender Discrimination challenge fell into oblivion though, haha.

And although not much has changed, some challenges have been extended and some others revived, so im looking forward to trying out a bunch of new ones!

I'm doing my first Monotype challenge right now, which has been a lot of fun so far
And i even have 1 or 2 ideas for a new kind of challenge, let's see if i work out something good

It's funny, with most of my monotypes, I choose types and games where a Pokémon on my team can learn Surf and Fly (aka the only HMs important to me).

Not that funny, I sometimes have had to choose different teams based on that (and not always the ideal one) just so I don't have to worry about using HM slaves just to get around as opposed to using them in certain spots (like with Strength and Rock Smash).

Although this is more pronounced for me now in my monocolors than many of my earlier monotypes because of the fact that I hardly ever used full teams then and am using as many as I can now, so there is hardly ever room for a Wingull or Psyduck.

Monotype is sweet, I hope you enjoy it Zorogami. I haven't been able to work on my challenges for a couple weeks due to me now being in an effective mood to get my trade shop going. But now I think I'll be able to start working on them again. I really want to get things moving in my SS Bug Mono. It's gonna be SO hard to beat, oh my god.

I just entered Victory Road last night. n__n Perhaps I can finish it some time today or tonight, and if not, tomorrow. idr what I was last doing on my random lmao. I'm thinking about dropping it cause I just don't have any motivation for it at all, and I'd really like to do The Ones That Got Away in either FireRed or SoulSilver.

I really need to play some other games soon too, but I'd like to finish White 2 and then focus on Okamiden for a bit maybe, or Kingdom Hearts.

Fitting right?

I just came up with a challenge if anyone wants to post it (I haven't decided yet if I'll participate).

Anime Character Type Challenge

This is a challenge in which your Pokémon will be given a personality – an anime personality (or archetype). You must build a team based on any of the following attributes.

Rules:
•No Mary Sues (aka Legends)
•You can’t have a team that’s full of one archetype or more than one of the same archetype in your team
•No Dues Ex Machina (aka no Action Replay or Gameshark)
•You can trade/Palpark/Time travel with yourself or each other for needed Pokémon if not available

See the spoiler for the Character Types.
Spoiler:
Character Types



Tsundere
This Pokemon is like anime’s form of bipolar. They simultaneously help and harm their opponents and partners.
- Must have moves that can harm everyone on the field or harm them if they miss
- must have moves that can Help an ally or the entire team
- Must have moves that boost stats/attacks multiple times while sacrificing another stat, HP, causing confusion, etc.

Yandere
This character loves… maybe even obsesses about their opponent of the opposite gender. If they can’t have them, no body can.
- Must have Attract and must use it on any Pokemon of the opposite gender
- Once a pokemon is attracted, your pokemon must fight to the death without switching – preferably with anything that uses claws, blades, or other sharp, pointy objects

KUUDERE
This pokemon is so indifferent that it rarely participates in battle and when they do, they put very little effort in unless the going gets tough.
- Must be a pokemon of low speed or has truant
- Must be the last Pokemon Listed and the last to be used in any situation

DEREDERE
This Pokemon is shy, quiet, and cares for its trainer and team mates. They don’t show this side of them often, because they’re so shy of battling and making mistakes.
- Must have mainly support moves and must use them often
- Must have moves that benefit the user and hurts the opponent at the same time

BISHIE/IDOL
This Pokemon is pretty to look at. So Pretty that everything they do is pretty, down to their attacks. They’re quite popular with their team mates.
- Must be an Aesthetically pretty/cute/cool pokemon
- Must use the flashiest moves they have at all times (even if not the most powerful, or counterproductive to a situation)
- Must participate and win in contests, musicals, movies, tournaments, etc.

CHIBI
They’re Cute, they’re tiny, And they’re CHIBI!
- Must not exceed 2 feet in height

GENKI
This Pokemon’s blood is made of caffeine and sugar.
- Must have the highest speed on the team
- Must use moves that boost evasiveness and agility
- Must have moves/items that allow them to go first

LOLI/SHOTA
Putting aside the… connotations of these character types, these are really young and adorable pokemon
- Must be baby pokemon or must remain exclusively in their unevolved form

MAHOU
A Pokemon who learned more than how to pull a Buneary out of your hat.
- Must use special moves exclusively and moves that confuse the opponent
- Must learn a special move (or 2) that is not their type

MIKO
These Pokemon deal with demons, Pokemon that have passed on, and other things that go bump in the night.
- Must be Psychic, Ghost, or Dark type


NEKO/IKU/KITSUNE
Man’s best friend and mysterious frienemies
- Must be based on a cat, dog, or fox

NINJA/KUNOICHI
Nunchukus, shuriken, or just plain using their fists, these Pokemon like to fight and may use some dirty tricks
- Must use poison or other status moves that hinder the opponent
- Must be poison, dark type, or fighting

OJOU/WAKA
These are the pampered, primped Pokemon who have experienced the finer things in life: custom designed Pokeball, the most expensive Pokefood, the best medical care, and the best poffins/pokeblocks Yen can buy.
- Always give them the best medicine you have if a Pokemon Center can’t be reached quickly
- Keep them up to date on the best STAB moves
- Never let them be seen without their healing berry/item
- A team with an OJOU (female) or WAKA (male) must have a MAID (for the waka) or ****SUJI (for the Ojou)
- May only be used in battle after their ****suji/maid has fainted

****SUJI/MAID
These Pokemon take burns, freezes, electrocutions, bullets, stabbings and who knows what else for their trainer and their OJOU/WAKA. They have little regard to their safety until they know their ojou and trainer are safe.
- Must always double/triple battle with the OJOU/WAKA
- Must not be healed until they are in the red

I was watching the new Pokemon XY trailer just now, and had a thought. What if, since now everything is a 3D model, we can't turn off battle animations? It would really suck for us challengers! It's like the number one way to speed up a challenge!

I don't mind having the battle animations, I love them. Even when I'm doing the challenges

Only time I would turn it off is when I'm doing a timed challenge.

I actually don't do that, but did the console games let you turn off animations? Seems like a similar thing.

The only time I ever turned off battle animation in a challenge was for the speed run GT event in 2011 and when I was playing Black and didn't get a team member till like...Route 4 and wanted to hurry up and get there so the challenge could really begin.

I usually leave them off until a boss fight, like a Gym Leader or the E4. But for regular trainer battles, and especially when Grinding I turn animations off.

I've always had them on because i just like to see the attack, especially in the newer Gens.
Being in 3D, i'll definitely leave them on playing X/Y :D

I would hope they would keep the option for turning the animations off for those who do that, I personally don't turn off animations because they interest me too much (for some reason). However, I still think having that option open, especially now that the battles look like they will take longer, would be a good idea.

Yeah, I hope they keep it. idk it'd seem like a step backwards to take them away. That in mind, I hope the L = A feature comes back. It's nice when you're multitasking and you can just kind of play your game with one hand. Can't do that with BW(2) cause they took that feature away. Sending gift Pokemon to your PC when your party is full needs to come back too. That was a feature in Gen I of all things. And it never saw a return. Silly.

btw, love your sigs Zorogami and Diamond. :)
