Game: Pokemon 3d (fan game, but plays almost exactly like hgss plus has almost every pokemon up to gen 6)
Pokemon Team: Butterfree, Raticate, Bulbasaur, Glaceon, Umbreon, (first pokemon I find on route 1)

I have a quick question regarding the challenge, for the 3rd pokemon in your team, I got bulbasaur and im playing a gen 2 game, so there is no way I can get a Bulbasaur, ... what should I do? I forgot to add, that since its a fangame there is no way I can trade for it.

Because the first three are directly calculable, I wrote a small program to look for cases where you'd get three of the same Pokemon. Some of the more interesting ones I found:

If you're born on January 3rd, 2005 and are playing RSE or ORAS, you're required to use three Swamperts.

If you were born on October 20th, 2010 and playing Gen II games, you have to use three Cleffa. I'm so sorry.

June 24th, 1966 gets you three Happiny if you're playing DPPt.

Picked snivy so as to get panpour at striaton city. Went to route 1 and caught a patrat then went to the next town and boxed snivy. Battled and beat N with patrat (3v1 lol) continued on to striaton city and caught pidove along the way. Went threw the dream yard and lost to the second trainer there and came back with potions and beat her. Received panpour from trainer and then went back to striaton and beat chili with panpour. Saved the game and crashed.

Ok let me see if I have this straight
This is confusing me


My birthday is 12/03/98

1. Take the day you were born, and add it to the month and the last two digits of the year.

2. Take the day you were born and multiply it by the Generation* of game you are playing.

3. Take the month you were born in and multiply it by the Generation* of the game you are playing, squared.
86436 <--- what the hell? I have to divide this in half 9 times before I get something that is in Emerald. [86436/2=43218 43218/2=21609 21609/2=10804.5 10804.5/2=5402.25 5402.25/2=2701.125 2701.125/2=1350.5625 1350.5625/2=675.28125 675.28125/2=337.640625 337.640625/2=168.8203125 168.8203125≈169] I feel like I'm not supposed to have to do that.
98*32=98*9=882 882/2=441 441/2=220.5 220.5
≈221 <---- Still feels like I shouldn't have to divide it that many times

Am I doing something wrong on this step? I read it two different ways and got two different choices.

- a)If you were born in December, January or February, select an Ice type of your choice.
- b)If you were born in March, April or May, select a Grass type of your choice.
- c)If you were born in June, July or August, select a Fire type of your choice.
- d)If you were born in September, October or November, select a Rock type of your choice.

- a)If you were born in December, January or February, select a Black Pokemon of your choice.
- b)If you were born in March, April or May, select a Yellow Pokemon of your choice.
- c)If you were born in June, July or August, select a Gray Pokemon of your choice.
- d)If you were born in September, October or November, select a Purple Pokemon of your choice.

6. The first Pokemon found on the route that corresponds to the month you were born in.

12 <--- Route 12 isn't in Emerald, what do I do?

I'm just a huge dunce when it comes to reading rules, so all of this is confusing me too much. I'd love to do the challenge, so please help me understand
