I like to do challenges on Fire Red (especially solo runs). I used to get 'stuck' on certain places and had to look something up to find my way through or out and Fire Red (and Leaf Green, Red, Blue, ...) is the only game where I can find my way blind :p
(Gen II games (Crystal, Silver, Gold) are probably my least favorite games do to challenges on, because the Pokémon are all so low leveled (at least I think they are) and it gets hard to train your own.)

I do most of my challenges on RSE and whatever the latest generation is (that being gen V just for a little longer!). RSE are easy and quick for me to play through, and Hoenn is my favorite region. And playing the latest generation will give me the maximum variety for team options. :)

I've been doing the majority of my challenges on Fire Red and pokemon Black/White 2. Unova's grown on me,and I love the variety of pokemon I use in these challenges. Monocolor seems neat,so thats the one i might go with the most.

Did ever existed some kind of challenge where your Pokémon can't get any STAB moves?

I've seen people do it with Nuzlockes, that and superless runs (no Super Effective moves may be used if possible) but I don't think I've ever seen a thread for it here. It seems like a fun prospect though.

I most often seem to play LeafGreen and HeartGold. Black 2 and White 2 are certainly close contenders now though. They are really fun and have great variety.

I know we've had one before, but I don't remember how long it lasted.

Maybe this already exists, but a nuzlocke where you only get one pokemon of each type, for a total of 17/18. When you encounter a pokemon, and one of its types is a type you don't have, you must catch it. If all 17/18 die, that's it.

"Ultimate 18 Challenge"

1. Feint = death, like normal

2. If you encounter a pokemon with a type you don't have, you must catch a pokemon of that species. (if you miss your chance you can try again. you MUST get one.)

3. The catching restriction only applies to what type each pokemon is at the time of captured. If it changes type later, ignore it. Charmander only counts as fire, even though he picks up a second type later.

Dual-Types are handled like this: You catch a charmander, you can never capture slugma, but if Macargo is in the wild you can catch him as your rock type.

Isn't that Typelocke? I may be wrong though. Hard to keep up with all the Nuzlocke variants, lol. ~_~

maybe a challenge where catching is forbidden. I could start it but I'm not sure if it's good enough.

That's the Gift Pokemon challenge, it's been done before, so I wouldn't really worry about it not being good enough. Just make your thread concise and organized that it shouldn't have trouble getting approval.

Yeah, I mean, I know you some of you guys may think I live on the site and stay in this very section, hawk-eyeing it every 5 seconds for new challenges, but...

SURPRISE!

I have a life. ;)

I have a haptic tattoo that vibrates whenever something is going on here on the forums. B)

Now, if only I could decently update my three challenges in progress, lol.

Ya know, I revived The Ones That Got Away on the idea that there was a good bit of interest in it, but it keeps freezing up. From what I can tell, the old thread was one of the most successful threads in Challenges' history, so why is my version of it failing? Anybody got thoughts on this?

No clue, really. :( It just happens, I guess. Not to mention this time of year, most people are going back to school and all. I'll try to play during my free time soon and get an update in there for ya, but I've got a busy week ahead of me so idk. :<

I'm in the middle of moving, and am really trying to beat Civ 5 right now, but I DID pick Trozei back up. I was really bad, which hurt me, because I got really good at that game. Need to keep playing so I don't lose any mad skillz.

Is everyone ready to revamp their challenges to suit XY players?!?! I have four challenges...

-runs off to the ocean and drowns- Too many things to update omg. At least I get to wait til February to update TCG. XY Base Set isn't out till then. Though technically, that challenge will update itself since I link to Bulbapedia's list of theme decks and sets and what not, so when they update, TCG challenge will be updated. ...That was easy.

My challenges never got popular, so nothing to update >.>

And if you ever think of drowning, we will all come and get you out of that ocean Syd, no worries

What will the first challenge be that you will do on XY, guys? For me it will definitely be a monotype. Probably fire or so .
