That challenge.
Say you wanted 4 pokemon.
Others get to tell you what pokemon you will use.
They can use any kind of restriction.

Example:
Im going to play on Ruby.
I want just one pokemon.
NFE please.

Poster Below says:
I'm going to give you a Grovyle.
It cannot know Leaf Blade, it must know Mega Drain, and the TM Secret Power.

or something like that. I may start a thread, but im not very active, so I would very much like someone to do it.

The different growth rates are programmed into the game, they're listed for each pokemon in some pokedexes, so I've compiled them into lists, e.g.:

Fluctuating pokes need 1 640 000 exp to reach lv 100 (the slowest).
They include:
Breloom
Hariyama
Illumise
Swalot
Wailord
Crawdaunt
Seviper
Drifblim
And their prevos too, of course.

So, the pokemon are already decided by the game mechanisms : )

How about something like the Ultimate Mashed Challenges Challenge?

Like... Take three or more challenges, and try to beat them all three together in the same gameplay.

I can definitely see something like "Random Pokémon Monotype Nuzlocke" run. Either that, or I'm not making any sense, but I blame that one on being 6:03 am :B

Make your own trainer class challenge?
I thought this would be cool, but I'm not sure how it would work out ...


you'd fill something like this out, and yeah.

Name of class:
Description:
What pokemon they would use and why:

Some examples

Name of Class: Crazy Cat Lady
Description: A old women who has gone a bit loopy. She'd be dressed in rags and have multiple Cat Pokemon around her.
What pokemon and why: She would mainly have cat pokemon (skitty, meowth, etc) but she might have one "feminine" looking pokemon (kirlia, jynx etc)

Name of Class: Diver
Description: Could be male or female. They would be in a swimming pose, and they would be in a wet suit.
What pokemon and why: Camperl, corsola, octillery and drifloon. the first three are pokemon likely to be found underwater, and drifloon could be used to supply the diver with air.

Get the Idea?

What about the Theme Challenge? You use Pokemon that relate to a theme eg for Heat you could use Steelix,Drifblim,Rapidash,Infernape and Lopunny. You have to provide the reasons of why you think the Pokemon fit the theme.

We already discussed this a couple pages back you could add "Optional" rules to the Monotype thread or something.

This is basicly the Word challenge but you don't get your word randomized.

What about the Ribbon/Medal/Pokemon Musical award Challenge? You can only use Pokemon that have got a Ribbon/Medal/Pokemon Musical award in battle. Challenge starts as soon as you can enter Contests/the Pokeathlon/Pokemon Musicals.

As it has already been said, Trainer Class sounds sort of fun. Mashup Challenge has already been talked over (and I have done it: Nuzlocke, unevolved, Brown Colored challenge on Ruby). I think the exp one is meh. Seems just like another basic editing of what Pokemon you can use. Theme challenge sounds really easy to me, because you can have such a variety of Pokemon by barely changing yoru word.

Happy Birthday Chaos!!!

Oh yeah, and I haven't checked to see if it got through yet, but I remade the Scramble. So yeah.

There is already a Contest/Pokethlon challenge, however it hasn't been updated to include Musicals. I guess either the person running it could update the first post and I could edit the thread title, but if that doesn't happen, I don't see a problem with someone making a specific BW challenge for musicals.

The Ribbon thing seems pretty...pointless, imo. In Emerald you'd have to beat more than half the game to be able to start, R/S, you'd have to wait until you're at the half point mark, in every other game with ribbons you'd be halfway done with everything. So, that's just my thought on it. >.>"
Oh, and happy birthday Chaos! c:

EVERYONE (INCLUDING CI&D) WISHES CHAOS A HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!
Oops, sorry guys. My Caps was on.
Anyways, Syd, seems like my DS can run alright. This means that I can get Platnum, HG and SS on the Pick Up & Play Challenge.

However, my SS got wiped clean while it was taking a bath (when I fell into the pool). That means my Nuzlocke got deleted. '

Also, seems like the water cleaned my DS's unworking buttons, namely L and R. This means I can get back to PMD, so I'll add that to the list.

The only crappy thing is that the screen and backlight act and look weird. And it sometimes gets an error when opening games. But it will wear off in time...

I spilt some bubble liquid on my DS when I was doing the Fire Monotype Challenge. I paniced but my DS is totally fine now.

I'll update the Contest/Pokeathlon Challenge first post since I made it.

CHALLENGE IDEA!
What about the Nature Challenge? You can only use Pokemon of a certain nature. Could add the 'Only catch thefirst Pokemon you see in a area' rule to make it more challenging.

CHALLENGE IDEA 2!
What about the Level Challenge? You can only use Pokemon of a level range in a Gym Battle EG: multiples of 5, between LV19 and LV21,etc. Could be randomized. New restrictions for each Gym Battle.


Seems like I'm on the make the word Challenge bold bandwagon now.

New idea - pokemon rainbow challenge!

Each pokemon on the team has to be a different colour - red, orange/yellow, green, blue, purple, black/white/grey/brown/pink.

Red coloured pokemon can't be fire type.
Yellow can't be electric.
Green can't be grass.
Blue can't be water (difficult :>).
Purple can't be poison.
Pink can't be psychic.
Brown can't be ground.
Grey can't be rock or steel.

Optional: Can't use the colour of your game (diamond - grey, pearl - white, platinum - grey).

It might work. I'd do it.

Example:

Happy Birthday Chaos!!! Don't know if I wished you yet. If i did, then you get two birthday wishes from me.

Nature Challenge idea: blah. Still circling around the same old "slight restriction on a team" idea. And this seems even easier to me, because I usually don't bother about natures, and my teams always turn out just fine, so if i do worry about my natures, I can just pick a good nature out and be done with it. Plus, I get to use all my favorite Pokemon. Again, I disapprove of this challenge.

Level Challenge: Doesn't seem hard at all. There wouldn't be a ridiculous level challenge, like "beat claire with Pokemon that are at between 15 and 20." and you can again, use any Pokemon you want, so again, doesn't seem like a challenge to me.

Rainbow Challenge: I think we're getting there. I do like the "no fire for red" restrictions, but don't really like the game color restrictions. Closer to a winner, but still meh.

A nature challenge seems way too difficult since you can't know what nature something is when you catch it. You'd have to like...catch everything you see and just go with whatever Pokemon matches the nature you chose. And for your starter, you'd have to SR for that certain nature you want. Sounds horrendous, and I would never bother. :(

This has nothing to do with challenges, but I just wanna say that Chaos' typo of birthday reminded me of the day before Christmas Eve. I was drugged up on medication cause I had just gotten my wisdom teeth taken out and I was typing something to someone and I was like "HAPY BRITHAT JESUS!!!11!!!111" and yeah.

I was not happy to find out that I was a day off.

Also, I had FireRed for the PUAP challenge today and FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. The music drove me insane. I muted that crap, dood. lol But I got more stuff done on FireRed than I did in Diamond. Gosh.

What about the NonMonotype Challenge? (Sorry about the name, I couldn't think of anything good)
This is the opposite of a Monotype. For example, if you did a Fire Non Monotype, you can NOT use Fire types. You can also do more than on type eg for a FireWaterGrass Non Monotype you cannot use Fire,Water or Grass types.
I know it sounds meh-ish.

I think that would work well as a additional rule in a challenge, but it isn't enough to stand alone, imo. Because if you just leave it at that, it's just like a relaxed version of a monotype.


Also, I forgot to mention, with my trainer class challenge, you would play through it like that character would, so, just for example you're a cave explorer, instead of just grinding anywhere, you'd do all your grinding in caves, and you'd thoroughly explore them. If you were a gardener, you'd use berries instead of other items, and if you were in hg/ss, you'd collect the apricorns everyday. I think for ease, these things would be called restrictions

I am in two minds about it though, it would be awesome if you totally created a class yourself, and you'd be able to make it as easy or as hard as you like, but if you had someone else impose restrictions it could be more exciting/ harder/ something you wouldn't usually do. I suppose if this does come to fruition, when signing up, the person could specify if they wanted another person to come up with restrictions.

I suppose it could be used as a kind of role play. I've always been jealous of the other trainers, how they can specialize, and I think it would be awesome if you could become a proper pokemon breeder in the game, or something like that, but I think this would the closest we'd get to that.

People could really get detailed too if they want, they could decide that the trainer class might not be into breeding ( for example, trainer class macho man) so they wouldn't breed.

I want to test it out, but I can only find my heartgold atm, and I don't want to lose my good pokes...

I imagine the trainer class challenge could be pretty fun, if you have the patience for it - but it would be difficult to measure if someone had won it.
Hm, the creativity never stops - I have another idea (bear with me here):
OK:

1 - When a pokemon in your party tries to learn a new move, you may catch or acquire the next pokemon you see.
2 - After you earn a badge, you may catch the next pokemon you see that shares a type with that gym.
Otherwise, you may not catch or acquire new pokemon in any way.
3 - Only pokemon that are at the same level as the leader's weakest pokemon can take on a gym.
4 - If you white out outside of a gym, you have failed the challenge. Gyms get 2 tries - if you white out twice, you have failed the challenge.
5 - E4 functions the same as a gym, but the Champion counts as the leader.
I have no idea what to call it. The Strategy Challenge? Because you have to know how to use random caught pokemon to their greatest situational potential... I honestly don't know.
But it's on my (long) list of challenges to try.

I think we once had Trainer Class.
As for the UnMonotype, we'd need at least 5 types to not use. One would be too easy.
Just my cents, once again. I am way too busy. v_v

Dunsparce, that's a myrrhmanish challenge you got there. We just need people to understand this, and it might be awesome. I understood it, and I am eager to play.

Also, Strategy Challenge sounds alright.

It's sad that the most creative challenges are the ones that typically get ignored for lack of understanding. But then, you have to understand the fine line between the creative ones that are hard to understand and the ones that are just downright confusing. My gosh, the things I have to look at for approval...you would not even bah-leeve.

And yeah, I think the trainer class challenge went and jumped off a cliff or something.

Also, with my PUAP challenge, I'm skipping playing today. I have absolutely no time, lol. Tomorrow I'm picking back up with my Crystal ROM. I think I have a shiny Celebi on there? lolololol Cheater is me. ^______^
