Hello Pokécommunity! I'm sure all of you have heard of the Monotype challenge, or the Solo/Mono Pokémon one too. But have you heard of the newest of the bunch, the Monoball challenge?

For those of you not into etymology, Mono means one, so, if you still haven't guessed it...
If participating in this challenge, any Pokémon that you catch MUST be caught in one type of Pokéball.

-Use ONE type of Pokéball. This means, if you get/choose Pokéball, you cannot use your master ball, you may not use your ultra balls, and you may not use dusk balls, etc.
-You MAY catch shiny Pokémon with other Pokéball types, HOWEVER, if the one they are caught in does not match your 'approved' type, then into the box it goes. Pronto.
-(Optional, recommended though) HM Slaves MUST ALSO be caught with your Pokéball type.
-Starters and gift Pokémon DO NOT count, as you have no control over their Pokéball type.
-You may NOT use egg Pokémon. You could, if you really wanted to, not use this rule, but it just, it feels like cheating to get around it.
-You may only have ONE traded Pokémon, and it MUST be in the same Pokéball as your elected type. Not the right one? Boxes for everyone

Random Pokéball
While much of this depends on your game, a little help can be given.
Using the following website, where it says how many numbers, enter 1, and the range should be 1 to i, where i is equal to:
If playing in Gen I: 4
If playing in Gen II: 11
If playing in Gen III: 11
If playing in Gen IV, but NOT HG/SS: 14
If playing HG/SS: 21
If playing Gen V and onwards: 12

Then, once you have your number, refer to the following chart:


Number: Ball:
1 Standard
2 Great
3 Ultra
4 Master
This section is for G/S/C or HG/SS:
5 Level
6 Lure
7 Moon
8 Friend
9 Love
10 Heavy
11 Fast
And just HG/SS:
12 Premier
13 Repeat
14 Timer
15 Nest
16 Net
17 Dive
18 Luxury
19 Heal
20 Quick
21 Dusk
Back to everything else now:
5 Premier
6 Repeat
7 Timer
8 Nest
9 Net
10 Dive
11 Luxury
12 Heal
13 Quick
14 Dusk
I realise that wasn't necessarily the most efficient way to do it, but it works

Update #1

So, I've been welcomed to the world of Pokémon (Again)
Aaand this time it's Professor Sycamore (Am I the only one who thinks he and Professor Birch would be best buds? [Or saplings ]), what with him casually tossing Pokéballs around, it feels... taunting.... I want one

Anyway, progress through the dialogue, see a bunch of Pokémon, choose female character, dark skin dark hair, and told him my name, Isabelle.

Suddenly, our (Me and Mum's) Fletching flies in and pecks me violently. Guess it's time to get ready.

WOAH. I know every time we move, the room get's upgraded. But my new TV..... :D

Anyway, went downstairs, and mum told me to get changed out of my pajamas....
Soo... Went back upstairs, got changed, and went back downstairs. And my friends are outside... Let's go! (Walks into door frame)
Ah huh. I see. So Sycamore lives in Lumiose City... Which is the central city. That's new...

So.... Shortest route of all coming up..... Aaaaand....
Did you blink? It's over! Ok... It's not that short, but it's short...
So, I arrive at the designated meeting place, and apparently, my 'friends' were talking about me!
So I have not 2 friends.... but 4! I just get friendlier and friendlier.

And now.... Now they're fighting over my nickname. Great. Why can't it just be Isabelle?
There. I told them I just want to be called Isabelle, and they're fine with it. Let's get this show on the road, peoples!

And the decision.... The tough, the final decision.... I'll pick........



Froakie :D Balances out team (Torchic, Froakie and Bulbasaur)

And now... I think... I dunno, he looks like a Freddo to me, so that shall be his name. Freddo the frog.... Froakie..... thing......

And of course, Calem picks Chespin..... Of course. Oh well, Shauna got Fennekin, so that should be easy.

I still dunno what Trevor and whats-his-dancing-face got. Hmmmmm....

So. Party at the moment: Freddo the Modest Froakie, who likes to thrash about.
HP: 19
Attack: 9
Defense: 9
Sp. Atk: 12
Sp. Def: 10
Speed: 12

Knowing how these regions work there'll probably be a rival battle right about.....

And it's Shauna, with her Fennekin. Too bad for her, Freddo already knows Bubble..... I'm sorry Shauna, but this will be easy.

This strategy again. Tail whip.
And Again.
And then we get an ember....
Pointless strategies: AI: 1

Aaand Freddo leveled up :D Level 6 Freddo, you are awesome

You know what? That's been pretty tiring, I think I might just nap in this Pokémart.....
*Spends 3 400 on Pokéballs first*
Ok, there we go. Off to my corner!



Freddo (Froakie)
HP: 21
Attack: 11
Defence: 10
Sp. Atk: 14
Sp. Def: 11
Speed: 14
Nature: Modest
Likes to thrash about

i might do this challenge for my channel...
I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.
