The only reason I did that challenge so fast was that I had already wanted to do that before Red made the topic. So I was already like 10 Pokemon away. I'm actually doing it again in my free time on every generation (emulator). This one is just for me though, and I know I'm not cheating.

How about a Pokemon can only learn its 4 most recent moves it has learnt. For example, Chimchar's first 4 moves are Scratch, Leer, Ember and Taunt... When it comes to learn Mach Punch (its 5th move as Monferno) it must delete Scratch and learn Mach Punch and when it learns Fury Swipes it must delete Leer. (TMs and Hms aren't allowed, only for HM slaves)

Another idea I had was to have 5 or 6 reoccuring names with all of your pokemon and they can only be replaced in the party by another with the same name. (This works well with nuzlocke).

Say I named my starter A, my pidgey B, rattata C, ekans D, geodude E, togepi F and bellsprout B... if my pidgey faints i must switch it with bellsprout and if any other pokemon faints there must be a gap in the team. (6th in the team can be resevred for HM slave). (This idea is probably an add on rule to some challeneges but I enjoyed using this rule)

Thoughts??? (apologies if these ideas have already been mentioned I only read a few pages of the thread)

I've thought of that myself, actually. I would never do it, though. I'd get too annoyed.

I was gonna re-enter the monotype challenge since playing Red for PUAP yesterday reminded me of what I was doing. But idk if I even have enough interest to keep playing it through til the end. I get so lazy with challenges.

Um, Syd... you've double posted. (:
Yes, well, I've talked to sammu. Seems like I'll finally be able to clock some more hours into HeartGold. With a Pokedex count of 399 (the biggest in our school (: and a lot of trash in the boxes, it's sure gonna come in handy.
Plus, I'll be able to put an effort of 300 hours into the game (currently 278 and counting). So yeah...

Um, kay, so I've made a thread for the Box Clearance challenge. Hope to get some challenges up !

^ Haha, I love your sig. :) And yeah, PC was crapping on me that day. I tried to delete it after I saw it posted twice, but it was being slow and pages wouldn't load and I was like "fine i'll do it later" and forgot.

Also, I think that this is the only time I've ever been doing so many challenges. I'm doing a triospecies on Ruby, PUAP, monotype on Red (which I need to sign back up for, I guess), and a favorite challenge on SoulSilver (which I need to get back to, lol). And technically a random challenge on Pearl, because when I played it for PUAP, I was like "oh, this is from when I posted a blog and asked people to think of a team for me lol"

Oh, Syd, would you mind accepting the Box Clearance Challenge ?
And yes, Amore made it. :] I think you all love his styles, they all rock.
And I've made progress on my Pt. Favorite. I'm in Veilstone already (lol), thinking I never updated for... a long time ! xD
I might do an update today, if I can find my Platinum.
Oh, and I am doing a run with Mew and some other Pokemon named after you guys. That Mew was impossible to nickname, so I just got Mondays the Totodile.
So, um, which Pokemon do you want to be ?
Btw, I'm playing SoulSilver.

^ I wanna be Smeargle or Umbreon. :) Male or female, it matters not lol. And I don't see your challenge. But if it meets the right requirements, then it'll likely be approved.

Hello, distraction. Thy name is Pokemon White. I need to get back to PUAP but I have not been in the mood for Sapphire!

Thank you. I needed a new team. The old ones weren't gonna cut it in eastern Isshu. And Sazandora is a destructive beast.

Spoiler:
In the final battle of the main game against Geechisu, he uses one that's on level 54, ten levels under it's actual evolution level, making it even more broken that it already is at that point in the game. It's difficult as hell, I'm tellin' you.


So it's been a while since I've worked on any CHALLENGES. I would also like to point out that some guy came up to the top floor of the library and is just sleeping. Like...idek.

Ah, lucky him. Our library is too small for me to be able to sleep.
Yeah, I'll just be logging my FR Omega Nuzlocke on the challenge forum Ace made. Just 'cause I can make my own thread and I hope getting nicknames first.
And I'm doing the Box Clearance challenge ! =D Also, expect more Pokemon signatures with this sort of art ; I got the site where Amore got this beast from. ;-)

I have an idea for a challenge!

My threads generally aren't successful....except my one in Hg/Ss about the Mew event, so somebody else'd post it...

But, basically, you have to give yourself a backstory! i.e. you already have your own pokemon (trade over an egg asap and hatch it before advancing), or you have a fear (no bug pokemon allowed??), or a deep hatred of a pokemon which means you have to battle and defeat every one you ever meet, or your starter pokemon has a rivalry with another of its' type (i.e. Empoleon and Barry's Floatzel), or something like that.

That might be good for comics and stuff. That's why Nuzlocke has all sorts of stuff around Ruby.
But that might be cool, and some people might even start writing whole stories and making their own comic. (:
But I suck at drawing, so stories for me...

pardon me if this has already been mentioned, but reading through 22 pages of posts just to avoid a duplicate post could take hours.

how bout the "Unknown Challenge"

You can only use Unknown to get through the game. The only exception is when you need to have a different pokemon to use an hm move to progress in the story(cut,surf,waterfall,strength) but you can't use the hm slave in battle.

As with the guy before me, apologies if this has been suggested already. But how about this idea: a challenge where you can only use Pokemon with BST of over, say, 520 or 530, but you can only use HM moves (obviously the rule doesn't apply until you get Cut).

Alternatively, for a bit more difficulty, you can only use Pokemon with BST of 500+, but you can only use moves with a power of 50 or less (and no Technician)?

Last but not least, for the most difficult variant, how about you can use any Pokemon (including those with less than 500 BST) but only moves with 50 power or less?

It could be called the "Arms Tied Behind Your Back" Challenge or something like that... Also, for added extra difficulty, you could tie in the rule that you can't use any STAB moves onto any of those variants.

The ones about BST haven't been done, to my knowledge. The Unown Challenge has been done by mondays suck, however there hasn't been an actual thread for it.

Wouldn't that Unown challenge just be a really masochistic Solo Challenge?

Here's an idea: how about a challenge where you can only use pokemon that haven't been used by Gym Leaders (including Rematches) in all the main games (from Gen 1-4)? (For example even if Surge doesn't have an Electabuzz in R/B/Y/FR/LG you can't use it because he has one in the Johto games. Plus Wattson uses one in his Emerald rematch)

Pretty much the opposite of a Gym Leader Pokemon challenge and forces you to use Pokemon that don't have much, I suppose 'screentime' because it hasn't been used by a Gym Leader

Obviously it would be easier to form a team in later game with more pokemon but it can still be done in the Kanto games.

I could make a list when I have more time to show how viable it can be

Geechisu is so annoying.Just think this,My first time playing White, and its a Nuzlocke run. His sazandora almost took my entire team down. I had a team of Enbuoh,Erufuun,Jihead,Shandera,Abagora,and Baibanira. I beat him with Enbuoh,Erufuun, and Jihead. The rest died. Blaack and White is the hardest game to nuzlocke.It's easy up until Artie but then your guy dies every 3 battles.

^Black and White Spoiler above^

I could never do a Nuzlocke on any Pokemon game. The only one I'd have any luck with it in is RSE, since I know those games like the back of my hand. But I don't like losing good team members. >_> It makes me too sad, cause I mean, I give the best nicknames. -hair flip-

This is an idea of a challenge I've thought of since quite a while so I guess that's the best place to write it down, isn't it?

The celebrity challenge!

-You can choose every kind of celebrity you want (manga/comic/anime/etc. heroes (some Pokemon like wigglytuff are allowed as celebrities because Wigglytuff, for example, has its own guild so your team would be in that case, the guild) and think what kind of Pokemon they'd use! Real Life celebrities are also allowed, of course!
-Every celebrity that has a team will be in the start post with his/her/its team!


That's the basic idea behind it! How does it sound to you?

I have somewhat of an idea for a challenge, which I would say could be considered as an "NPC Challenge", which derives from the Pokemon Anime.

I don't know if anyone else is interested in doing this sort of Challenge, but if you are then please feel free to start the thread yourself. I only suggested the idea because I thought it'd be a good Challenge, I don't actually want to do it myself, so I don't think I'd be allowed to run the thread...
