It was a challenge about using a level 1 Magikarp. Even if you wanna do that, there's a solo challenge thread, so...yeah. I've gotten plenty of similar threads before. "use only your starter" "beat the game with caterpie" NO. YOU USE THE SOLO THREAD LIKE THE REST OF US.

I FELT SO BAD THAT PEOPLE SIGNED UP FOR THAT OMG. I did that prank, but with a MUCH more difficult and bizarre ruleset back in 2011 and no one bought it. Like it was obviously a prank. BUT THAT ONE. I felt terrible. XD

I saw the challenge and it popped up during April Fool's day, I was like 'Hmm.. something's fishy about this challenge) (No pun intended)

But the lucky ones to sign up got rewarded for an emblem for their crazy braveness to tackle on the challenge! LOL

Imagine someone actually finished the challenge before you announced that it was a prank LOL!

Btw, what did you do back in 2011?

Regarding the Sailor Moon Challenge would it be okay to use a Mamoswine if I went the Sailor Neptune route since the sheet said I could use Ice types but it only fits under full evolutions at best.

You're better off asking in the thread, or VMing Sooyun directly for that one.

And no, there wasn't an emblem for that one, haha. I don't think so anyway...unless I forgot about it. I don't think so, though.

You did say something about an emblem when you closed the thread, but I kinda assumed that was an april's fool as well :X

Huh...I'll have to go look through the emblems in the mod cp later on. And if there's one there, then I have to dig out that challenge. XD

Has anyone ever tried a no-power or indirect challenge?

No power-- only using moves that don't have a defined power (example-- any technique that is based on hp, any status (poison), counter, etc.)

Indirect-- you can only use moves that can cause damage on future turns (confusion, poison, leech seed, future sight, spikes) and moves that cause damage on that turn AND future turns (fire spin, wrap, stealth rocks, wirlpool, etc.)

I don't recall seeing one like that. At least not in a long time. I know there's not a current one.

It kind of limits the usable pokemon, but I think it would be interesting to try out sometime.

I think it would too! And it would be pretty difficult. You should post it and see how it works out. :) If you're gonna do that though, make sure you read over the rules and the FAQ. And if you have any questions, you can ask me and I'll help to the best of my abilities.

I have, and I know I would need to sign up for it myself (Seems to be the biggest problem in the rejected challenges spot)

I think I might try it a bit and see how it turns out before I suggest it as a challenge. I foresee a few problems starting out:

1) Starting the challenge
Basically, you need to get those abilities to begin with. These aren't exactly the most common of techniques.

2) Difficulty
At least for the indirect challenge, the majority of the techniques have low power. You would need to powerlevel quite a bit in order to survive while whittling down your opponents health

3) Lack of Variety.
I think it might turn people off to have to choose from such a limited set of moves/pokemon.

Ohhh yeah. It's a shame to see some really good stuff, and they're missing their sign up. Though now, you can view your threads waiting for approval and if you see you missed adding your sign up, I think you can edit it now. But if not, that's okay too, because you can PM me and let me know if you forgot your sign up. Lots of people do it and are honest about it.

Gonna pitch some suggestions for the problems...

1. Have a cut off time to get them ready. Say, by the 3rd gym, you should have at least 2 or 3 party members with at least 3/4 of their moves doing indirect damage. The one that does damage is not to be used and should eventually be replaced, of course.

2. I'm misunderstanding that one.

3. I think it would depend on the game. That being said, it's kind of a pick your poison challenge, cause if you pick a game with low variety, then that's your own fault.

As far as number two goes, its more... well, think about it. Any moves such as fire spin don't really do much damage on the turn it is used, its more the DoT affect that does the damage. That being said, you have to survive being hit by your opponent while they slowly die from the DoTs you are using (In the case of weather, techniques like wrap, poison, and leech seed)

The only high damaging attack I can honestly think of would be Future Sight, and even then you have to wait a few turns for it to hit, so you have to survive being hit while your attack goes through.

what if when your pokemon faints, instead of releasing it like in a nuzlocke , you trade it off on Wonder Trade and use that pokemon instead?

As far as Dr. Rose`s challenge idea goes, I can see at least some of the issue of a limited Pokemon pool is alleviated by the fact that literally anything can learn Toxic. The way I see it Toxic would be one of the most powerful moves in this kind of challenge.

If you end up doing it, I`ll totally sign up, seems super intriguing.

I was thinking of a challenge where people can only use pokemon from in-game trades and must solo the game with their starter untill they get one. I'd do it but I have an extremely difficult pichu solo run AND a nuzlocke on my hands so yea

Yes, Mamoswine is okay (or Piloswine if 2nd gen). Mamoswine can also count as a member of Uranus (since its part ground).

I would like to revive the no catching challenge. Since the other threads are so old, I would like to start a new one. I just bought pokemon y, since I don't want to restart my completed pokemon x.

Basically the rules are going to be:
- No catching (any pokemon you use most be received from a person, obtained from a fossil etc.)
- No event pokemon (including torchic)
- No store purchases, you can use the items you find, receive and buy from people on the street and in the power plant, the vending machine etc.
- No trading pokemon

Please feel free to make some suggestions to make this harder/more fun. I would like to use exp share since you get a lot of the pokemon at lower level then your starter will be, and I would not like to exclude the use of pokemon centers or limit items even more.

Pokemon you get (known to me that is)
Starter (chespin, froakie or fennekin)
2nd starter (charmander, bulbasaur or squirtle)
fossilized pokemon; jaw fossil (tyrunt) or the sail fossil (Amaura)
Lucario (at the mega evolution event in the game)
Lapras (from the worker standing right outside the connecting gate after you've just gotten surf and before you can hit the water).

Are there any other gift pokemon I missed outside of event pokemon? If I get the ok from the mod, I will post the challenge and my own progress in a challenge thread.

I think you should make the "no store items" optional. that can get hard.
