And then there's me, who didn't notice the name change yet.
Congrats Necrum, it should have happened a lot earlier but we needed you to be able to edit our posts I guess.

Also Jak, where did you say the GT Challenge thread was?

So after one of my recent playthroughs where I used the nicknaming theme of naming Pokémon after modern constellations, I was thinking of possibly a challenge based on those constellations themselves. There are a lot of them and they represent certain things, however it'd take a while to list out every constellation and consider what there would be to fit certain Pokémon into for specific ones.

Still an idea that I would consider, if I could figure out how to organize it.

I actually just finished up my GT11 challenge! I got to use some Pokemon that I haven't used before, and it was fun building up my team and getting them Elite Four ready.

I've made good progress on the GT challenge. Most of them are in their 50s and one hit 60. Another is straggling along in the mid 40s. I got bored of re-doing the restaurant battles, but my Giratina hit level 100. I got that when Pokebank was recently released in Japan, and I kept using it as my Fly slave. :o

Should I event count it as the third Pokemon I have ever raised to level 100. I got it from the GTS around level 60s and I think it is foreign/hacked flag because it gained experience like CRAZY. It has perfect IVs and was from Johto.

I'm rebattling restaurants like crazy today so that I can finish on time. I'm sure I'll be able to at the pace I'm going. The team is shaping up nicely even though it has 2 NFEs and nothing that's really top tier, aside from Absol.

I'm making my way there. Battling in LeWow to get to the 60s. This event has definitely been a success, so expect me to do more with the concept in the future. I already have something in the works, but you'll have to keep an eye on the GT Challenge if you want a preview of what's coming. ;P

And don't forget, there will be another event posted on the 20th that will last through the rest of July! :) It will also utilize a completed game, so don't restart something you might want to use.

It sucks because I'm on vacation in the Philippines and I won't have much time to dedicate myself to the entire GT. Which blows since I really enjoyed my past GT experience and wanted to join in on this one =\

And on another note... Can we do challenges on non main Pokemon games? Such as Colosseeum and XD? If the challenge permits us? Like a Monotype, Monocolor, singles Pokemon and Nuzlocke?

Syd has done challenges on those before. It's up to the owner of the thread really, but for the most part if the game has the right similarities to a main series game it's doable.

You should definitely do it when you get the chance, btw. I figure most challenge owners would certainly allow Colosseum and Gale of Darkness, as they're really similar to the main games. It's a lot of fun though, honestly. I did a Normal monotype in Colosseum and had loads of fun. :)

Because I would love to do some challenges on those games but some challenges aren't doable on them
An ultimate gym leader challenge would be pretty cool to do on those 2 games :D

Yeah, it is hard to find something that works. I only did Normal types because there was a bonus going on at the time and there were enough in the game to make a full team in Colosseum. Gale of Darkness provides a lot more Pokemon so it's more feasible to do a challenge in that game rather than Colosseum, but I prefer that one to Gale honestly. I just like the darker tone of the game, haha. And I decided that all Pokemon snagged counted as badges, so that's what I used to measure completion for the challenge, but I suppose final boss would make more sense. I just wanted to be thorough.

I tried to do a Water Monotype as I have never played Coloseum or XD but it runs too slow and laggy on my comp and I ended up quitting halfway through with Vaporeon, Spheal, and a Carvanha I think. I hope to eventually play through that game if I can play it at a good enough speed - hopefully my next laptop will be able to do it and I will finally get through the game.

In other news, I have finally picked back up my Water monotype postgame on Black 2 and am gonna try to finish it soon so I can get it off my sig lol. I will post the result in the monotype thread, so look out for that, Necrum .

Also looking forward to the new event challenge. And I think it's kinda sad that no one did the GT11 one in Kanto.

I felt that way when I realized that, too. Poor Kanto doesn't get any respect.

no one did Kanto and Hoenn. Well, acatfrommars did signup for Sapphire, but I guess he got stuck trying to catch a feebas =( A lot also signed up for Sinnoh, but none finished. And here I thought Sinnoh's E4 was awesome, too. If not only for Staraptor (recently finished a Ranger challenge and i used ravia/Raptor for quite some time), I would've done mine there.

So was the horror challenge teaser an event for october or a normal challenge?

Really excited for the Halloween event, especially with someone as scary as Necrum running it. ;) And we've got a short event running from the 20th to the end of the month as well and I'm looking forward to that too! I'm basically always looking forward to challenge events haha. They're always fun and I love hearing feedback from you guys and giving you all something fun to do. Birdies just warm my heart.

Hey, I have a question.


I came back today from a long, unintended break, and of course I found my challenges in ruin, as I find them when I take breaks. I had time to save the Mega Evolution Challenge, as it's only been 12 days, but is it too late for me to revive the NPC Trainer Challenge? I haven't touched it in almost two months, and I still have intent in owning that challenge.

If it's not exactly 2 months (ex. No post since May 17, but it's currently July 15), you can still revive it. But honestly, if it's already that far gone, you're probably better off starting fresh. I'm sure Necrum will let it slide, depending on how many days it is from actually dying. But if you're, say, 10 days away, I'd just go ahead and use the current one.

It's only 8 days away from being considered as dead, and I've been wanting to modify it for a while. I want to make a new one, but would that be the right approach?

I think that people are most likely to read your new rules or what have you if you made a new thread. It's your call really though. I'd say if you're gonna change something in the existing thread, at least post about the changes so people can see it happened.

Hi folks! EXTREMELY long time no see :)

I'm going to try my best to get back in the saddle of things around here, but I also don't want to make too many promises. In the meantime, my Warlock from my other gaming vice says hi! :3
