Good news everyone! I started rebuilding my collection today by buying a GBA SP and a copy of Silver Version (With working battery that tells time!). So I'll be kicking off my long road of rebuilding with a monotype. What type do you guys think I should do on Silver Version?
Rock?
I don't think I;ve ever seen you do a Rock type mono :X

fun thing about both is that they're quite predictable for mirror coat and reflect. Now a fight against a poke with magic guard will be a hilarious turn of events.

anyhow, @Zappaman i'm totally in for that challenge once it's up and done. I can already see my team: one poke with double team-swagger, another with hypnosis-curse-nightmare, one with bide/pain split/d.bond maybe, then a psychic type can go quite cheapo with hypnosis/protect, recover/wish, future sight, and nightmare/toxic... and the poison-seed reflect-mirror thingies mentioned above

question, though, will bide be accepted for the challenge? Also, if moves like fire spin is allowed, then offensive stat-boosting moves (growth, howl, etc) along with Inferno and Magma Storm must be banned. Another option is, at least for the stat boosting+wrap-like moves' case, both moves can't be found in the same moveset of a single pokemon or wrap-like attacks can't be spammed per turn. I mean, it's gonna kill the essence of the challenge otherwise.

You don't have to. When we're counting them up, we'll know who you're talking about haha. But I guess I should go edit all the challenges I'm signed up in and change my name.

Speaking of that, now that name changes are back, I suggest that those of you who are challenge owners add a note that people should post when they get name changes so that it can be changed in the first post. It's kind of surreal...name changes were gone when Challenges was first made, so this is a first for this forum. Kind of neat, really! ...But still an extra hassle, lmao.

I have a tiny announcement to make:

I'm considering, at the end of the year, to drop some of the challenges I own because there never seems to be anyone interested in doing them and, quite frankly, I'm doing so many challenges right now that it's hard for me to keep up with everything.
Therefore, if anyone feels like adopting a challenge, I might be giving away the following challenges:

  • The Legendary Trio Challenge
  • The Baby Pokémon Challenge (cause that's apparently TOO difficult for people to play >.>)
  • The Eeveelutions Challenge
  • The Shin Megami Tensei Challenge
  • The Form-ulated Challenge

I am still not 100% certain that I want to part with them, but it's impossible for me to keep up with so many of them anymore.

IF I do decide, by the end of the year, to give them away, my only request would be that whoever adopts them makes a NEW thread instead of simply taking over the old one. I'm fond of the threads and I'd rather they were closed at the time instead of the ownership getting transfered and the first post getting changed.

I WOULD'VE joined some of the challenges, but on a baby pokemon challenge specifically, the move set rules (fake tears ect) were too restrictive. so I didn't

They were at first but then I changed them to make them less restrictive lol.

Because I have a life outside the forum that consists of working, and because of the holiday season, I have a double shift almost every day of the week.

PS: idk who syndan is ):

It's okay. It's just stressful working all during my break. I will accept your cookie though, and I raise you a holiday treat.

Oh, I actually DID change them. At first, all those extra moves like Fake Tears were mandatory. ALL of them. Now, if people got teams smaller than 6, they get to pick ONE or TWO of them. They're only mandatory for those going for full teams. But unlike me, people aren't that crazy to play with a full team xD


It's called a CHALLENGE for a reason. It's supposed to be CHALLENGING. So I don't see why people whine about it being difficult xD

So, I've been debating on weather or not i would actually make a post about this to share with the community because of 2 reason. 1. I didn't know who would actually find this interesting/amusing. And 2. I didn't know if someone has already attempted the challenge and posted about it. But i said to heck with it and decided to post about it just to see what kinda of folks like this sorta thing.

This is a challenge i set for myself a while back when my fiance bought the newest Pokedex book. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the book, it goes all the way up to Black/White 2 games and has all the stats you need for every Pokemon. Generally i don't by these books. Don't really want them. But when i opened up the cover of the book i noticed that there was something really cool on the inside. Every Pokemon over world sprite was laid out nice and neat in PC boxes. I thought to my self, "Oh my gosh, now there's a challenge." Which got me thinking, how cool would it be to have every Pokemon in the game laid out nice and neat in the order of the pokedex in your box. This would accomplish 2 things for me that have always bugged me. Cluttered PC boxes and missing pokemon. So for the month and a half I've been collecting every pokemon i can get my hands on to add them to my boxes. After i had a very nice collection, I began organizing. I started with Bulbasar and went all the way through to Zygarde at 718. It took a collective 24 of my boxes to put them in order from 001 all the way to 720. And although there are some major gaps in the boxes because of the wait for the pokebank, so far its been an amazing process. While i wait to transfer pokemon from the older games to the bank, I've been spending my time going through the Elite 4 evolving pokemon that i needed, and spending quality time at the daycare breeding for the lower level ones.

So yea, as of right now i have well over half the pokemon that are accessible to me without the help from the bank. But once the bank opens up it will be much easier to collect the ones i need to fill in gaps. When the whole thing is done i hope to have all 720 pokemon nice and neat in the pokemon bank for a nice little display of dedication. I'm happy to post pictures online for people to take a look at if they are interested, but like i said in the beginning this is a personal challenge that i wanted to share with the rest of the pokefans out there.

That's an amazing feat you've got going and a great challenge to set for yourself. I wish you a lot of luck on it. You've already done better than me, I just don't have the patience to catch 'em all anymore. Or the time!

I moved this on over here to the Challenges forum since it didn't exactly fit in X/Y entirely, but I'm sure Everlark can merge it into the DCC here where it'd probably fit a lot better.
