Welcome, one and all to the Type Cycle Challenge thread! (Revived!)

The entire basis behind Pokèmon is the idea of type advantages and disadvantages. This challenge expounds on this concept of creating a team that would be equally matched against each other in their advantages and disadvantages!

NOTE: Teams in this challenge will only consist of 3 pokèmon, and these pokèmon will be chosen by a RNG! If you would like to have a team with 6 pokèmon or despise RNGs with a vengeance, well, tough luck! .-.

To begin this challenge, choose one of the following Type Cycles, as I have dubbed them, and then put that cycle's Cycle Code (CC) in your Registration Form. Some of the Cycles will include immunities to give certain types more chances to be used.

Type Cycles
Spoiler:
Fire -- Grass -- Water CC: F1
Fire -- Grass -- Ground CC: F2
Fire -- Grass -- Rock CC: F3
Fire -- Ice -- Ground CC: F4

Water -- Ground -- Electric CC: W1

Grass -- Ground -- Poison CC: G1
Grass -- Rock -- Flying CC: G2
Grass -- Rock -- Ice CC: G3
Grass -- Rock -- Bug CC: G4

Electric -- Flying -- Ground CC: E1

Psychic -- Fighting -- Dark CC: P1

Ice -- Ground -- Rock CC: I1
Ice -- Ground -- Steel CC: I2
Ice -- Flying -- Fighting CC: I3


Fighting -- Rock -- Flying CC: Ft1
Fighting -- Normal -- Ghost CC: Ft2
Fighting -- Dark -- Ghost CC: Ft3
Fighting -- Steel -- Fairy (Gen VI Exclusive) CC: Ft4

Ground -- Rock -- Flying CC: Gd1


If I missed an Cycles, please let me know! ;)


Rules: 1.You have to catch the first pokèmon available to you that has been assigned to you as soon as possible. Until then, use your starter!
2.HM Slaves are allowed to be caught and used, but you may not bring them with you into any battles against Gym Leaders or the Elite 4!

In order to complete the challenge, you must defeat the strongest trainer in each of your respective games
Spoiler:
R/B/Y: Champion Rival
G/S/C: Pokèmon Trainer Red
R/S/E: Steven
FR/LG: Champion Rival
D/P/Pt: Champion Cynthia
B/W/B2/W2: Pokèmon Trainer Cynthia
X/Y: Spoilered to, well, avoid spoilers!
Spoiler:
Champion Diantha


Here's the Registration Form
NOTE: Challenge Type is whether you're doing the Single (One Version) Challenge or the Ultimate (Gen 1-5) Challenge! You may add Gen 6 to the list if you choose, but I understand some people don't have access to those games.

Hey, I have a few tips. First, you might not want to reveal the Champ for X/Y, because unlike a lot of people, some people still don't have the game. Also, you can't say you don't have a challenger, because you can include yourself. Also, I'll sign up to get you started.

No problem, thanks, and I'd appreciate it if I could get a Dark-type for the last four games, if that's ok.

VERY happy with that - and my all-time favourite starter too! Gonna be a fun challenge!


As a side note, I've just loaded up my game (haven't played in a LONG while) and there's a save on there that I REALLY don't recognise (I don't even know anyone called Brad...). Somehow I've magically acquired a game cartridge which isn't my own.. Oops. Lol, no idea where mine is though haha!
