Red does seem to have strong Pokemon, but he's a total nub when it comes to battling fo' real.

Also I've been thinking of another challenge, but different from the normal challenge. A Battle Tower/Frontier Challenge! You wouldn't need to start your 4th gen games again for this either. Simply you run any Frontier place you like, although Tower is preferred, choose the Pokemon you wish to use for the entire time and see how far you can get using just those three Pokemon. To make it harder, you could have restrictions on Pokemon, like no certain Pokemon or even try doubles or even go in with a friend if you have Wifi.

That would be really fun. I think I'd enjoy doing some doubles frontier stuff with someone.

What about this idea? I've broken it into steps.

1. Get a partner. Or you could do it by yourself, but with a partner is more fun.
2. Play through HGSS (or DPPt if you can do it on that game). Your partner does the same.
3. Find another team that signed up in the challenge.
4. Team battle them. Its different than battling in the wi-fi section of Pokecommunity, because for that you have teams meant for competitive battles (I think) and stuff. With this your team is set for challenges, so your movesets would be much suckier.

I strongly approve of this idea. :D

Not sure on the Pokemon Online thing, but I like the wifi idea.
To elaborate on myrrhman's Speed Run idea, if you can find a friend to do it with at the same time, after every gym/important event the two people should have a Wifi battle with their current teams to see who is better at the time.

Also from reading Shiny Politoed's comic Nuzlocke run makes me want to do one now, and the comic made me lol so hard. I think my favourite line was this:
"Suicune makes me moist. I wanna see it dglkjfslfa. SUICUNE! *creepy face lick*"

The only problem there would be that if people aren't in the same place at the same time, then one has to wait for the other. Also it makes you save, so there would be no way to make sure your time doesn't rack up while you're battling.

And yeah, I tried making a comic one time. It was really fun, but really hard.

HGSS > DPPt, obviously. (:

I strongly approve myrrh's idea. I also think if we don't have WiFi (for instance, me and chaos don't >.<) can post screenshots of our team then put them on PO... or wait, we have to find out the IVs, so that might not work...

crap.

PS : Mmm, Alternative, I think you're becoming a challenge regular. :-D Yeah that's tasty.

You could always pick someone that's on par with your speed at completing challenges. Also, the wait wouldn't have to be as long. I know it's hard to find a person that's exactly your speed, but as long as you get someone close enough, it should be alright.

Just make every Pokemon have 31 IVs and 0 EVs?
That'll work fine, unless you have Hidden Power on your moveset. If so you have to show on which Pokemon it does SE damage so we have proof it's the right Hidden Power Type.

We can also take screenshots of the PO battle with PrtScr (Print Screen) so that's good.

Omg, finally I can move on to another challenge. I have a whole bunch that I've signed up for, but haven't gotten to yet. I hope to finish at least another one tonight, if possible.

If you are using an emulator with D/P/PT or HG/SS, you can use Pokesav to look up the IVs. There will have to be some trust there, though.

It would be kind of lame that you would have to download Pokesav just to do that, though. I'm also a trader, so I don't even want to go near that program. :/

I don't see the problem with PokéSav, as long as you DON'T hack, it should be fine. It's not as if using the program itself creates hacked Pokemon and randomly gives them to people. *shifty eyes*

Support the wifi team frontier thing, but I don't think I would like to go through another playthrough of the Gen IV games... I've pretty much exhausted myself on those games...

Maybe we could do Gen V? But I don't know if you can still WiFi Team Battle the Subway.

I would like to direct your attention to my sig.

How many of us have Gen V? I'm going to get it, and probably do a challenge when I do, but I don't know which one I'm going to get, and what challenge I'm going to do. I'll let you pick my game and challenge out. I really don't know if I'd rather do a Monotype or Nuzlocke, or something else. Hmmmm.

I honestly don't see the point in doing a challenge for the first time around in a game. When I first play a Generation or in this case, get Black, I'll play through normally as I would. If I start again, or intend on getting White, I'll probably do a challenge, maybe a least favourites challenge.

I might do that. My girlfriend preordered one of them for my birthday, and knowing me I'll end up getting the other one too, so I might do a normal Playthrough on the first one and a challenge on the second one.

Yeah, good idea. :P
For the mean time, and to cure my boredom-itis, I'm giving up on my "domino" challenge and going with Nuzlocke, as it seems more challenging and enjoyable. :D

Well, Gen IV emulators can't trade, so that's the way I evolve trade pokemon and get eggs and stuff.

I know, but you can still just as easily use action replay/open two emulators at once. (Not sure on the two emulators at once thing, I know that you can do it on the GBA, haven't found out about DS.)
For whatever reason, I just refuse to download/use Pokesav at all. xP It seems like a little too much work just to do what AR codes can probably do.

Anyway...doing 12 type now. Shouldn't be too hard, my team is quite diverse. C:

I guess. I thought that challenge part of it was just to compose a team consisting of twelve different types, but I guess that helps with the diversity factor as well. xP

That one sounds easy. I need to finish a couple of the challenges I'm on now so I can do it. I will not go above 10.

On the upside, HG Water Mono and Ruby Steel Mono are both going great! Also I'm taking in my laptop tomorrow to get it worked on, so I can start back on my Nuzlocke right after I finish this Ruby one!

I sort of get the point of the 12 types challenge, but I agree with myrrhman. The challenge itself gives lots of diversity and seems really easy. Although I will give props for the fact that one who partakes in the challenge can only have certain Pokemon on the team, which is where I think the real challenge is.

The 12 type challenge is just an oppurtunity to give your team a load of type coverage, imo.
Monotypes are funner because of that 1 type that you absolutely fear.
I also failed the Rocket-Themed HG/SS challenge, because of crazy hax, courtesy of the Sprout Tower Elder's Hoothoot.
