Started another Nuzlocke on HG, I have no idea where it will go, however.
I've also decided to be a hypocrit and link to a section in my sig.

There's nothing wrong with linking something as shameless advertising in your sig. I have my pair in my sig, and a Pokedex entry.

In other news, I'm a volbeat bzzt *bugbuzz*

Haven't played Pokemon for ages... like 1 week, to be more exact.

Yeah. Just checked at the most trusted video game shop in Bucharest. They had HGSS right on 26th of March, and confirmed the fact that they are importing BW. Yeah. I'm a happy person.

5th March, Saturday, 3PM : Me and Pokemon Black... <3
...obsession. n_n'

*sigh* Taking a break on my Favorites Challenge, since I technically have to start all over again. :/
I'll be doing 1st and 2nd gen. challenges, since those are much quicker and more convenient. Then I'll go back to that challenge. (or at least that's the plan)

I'm just taking a break from challenges altogether for a while now. I may resume soon, and I hope I do, but I just haven't had the motivation to keep playing one. I mean the last time I played was three days ago, and I played for a little bit and pretty much turned it off.

I can also get through challenges equally as fast in the first two generations. I didn't finish my current Crystal challenge last night only because it was like 1 in the morning, and I was tired.


In other off-topic news, I am going to love having a new signature/avatar soon<3

When Pokemon B/W come out I plan to finish my Flying Monotype. I just want to know what Pokemon I should use.
These are the options for my team:
Unfezant*
Swoobat
Sigilyph
Archeops
Swanna*
Mandibuzz
Emolga
(* = defiantly on my team)

Yeah, I have a flying monotype that I may do on White, since Togekiss is in White. Dunno about the others, though. The fossil one looks good...

and I did get Slaking on my normal monotype ruby part. Not gonna use Girafarig, though.

That's a wise decision, I think. You are already doing a solo challenge with Girafarig, and I think it would be somewhat redundant to train a Girafarig in a different challenge as well. But that's just me.

Trying to start the favorite challenge, but surprisingly, not many people are posting in here I guess, so I don't have my types yet. Also, I'm going to postpone my ultimate mono-type challenge until I finish a nuzlocke, which I'll start after the favorite challenge.

Lol, that's not why, although that does make sense. I like to limit my team to four, five at the most on monotypes, since I almost always need an HM slave or two. I'm actually planning on using Girafarig in Platinum, though (Togekiss, Lopunny, Girafarig, Staraptor/Porygon-Z/Lickilicky).

I think I may go ahead and just do the nuzlocke on emerald first, since I can't seem to get a reply for my types in the favorite challenge. I'll give it 15 minutes though, and hopefully someone will have posted by then.

I see. I agree with the need to want only four. In most challenges, I think that the less pokemon, the better. (More convenient to train and whatnot.)
My reason came from the fact that I get bored with training the same pokemon very easily if I start to use them too much. It's probably one of the reasons why I'm procrastinating. (referring to my ultimate challenges)

lol well, usually I don't have to wait this long on a popular forum, but maybe this section or just this site doesn't get as much traffic as the ones I'm used to.

Anyways, I'm reading the Nuzlocke comic, and it's funny. I like the idea, so I'll start it now. Maybe the next time I get on the site (much later today), there'll be a post.

We are actually going through a slower period...It was really active a couple weeks ago, for some reason...

By the way people, anyone know of good grinding areas/trainer rebattles for pre-Elite Four grinding? I want to get my Username team to L54-56 at least - they are at L51 right now.

In the case of the 4th gen, I'd suggest Victory Road wild pokemon, or the Fisherman you fight on the way to Sunyshore.

Inferno, you were right. I just needed to be patient. Now I got my awesome team for favorite challenge though, and once I tear through Nuzlocke (which I am owning at right now), I'll start it.

Also, I have to agree, victory road for grinding is the best idea that comes to mind if you want to face the elite 4.

Great. Now it's official. I'm sadly on a challenge break, until April-May. Since that may be when I'll be happy with my progress in BW. So yeah, I'll be keeping an eye on you guys, but right now I've got way too many things to do.

PS : That period might be shortened depending on my mood. :p For instance, that Quartz Nuzlocke. ;P

>mon visage quand I haven't played BW for weeks maybe even months, I'm not quite sure about that), never did more than getting past the first gym, and am not at all motivated to continue while the hype is getting bigger and bigger as the release date is coming nearer.
Then again, I'm not even really motivated for my Ruby Lyrics challenge right now, I'm once again too busy being addicted to Civ IV.

I just thought of a cool challenge, called the Evolutionary Item Challenge where you can only use Pokemon that evolve using a certain evolutionary item. You would go here, click the scroll down for evolutionary items and choose one of the following: Dawn Stone [DPPt and up], Dusk Stone [DPPt and up], Fire Stone [any game], King's Rock [GSC and up], Leaf Stone [any game], Metal Coat [GSC and up], Moon Stone [any game], Shiny Stone [DPPt and up], Sun Stone [GSC and up], Thunderstone [any game], or Water Stone [any game], with the specified games to prevent this from being a solo run. You must pick two or more of the Pokemon on the pages, then play through a game with those Pokemon, evolving them as soon as possible or not at all or something, whichever seems the hardest. Just an idea if any finds it interesting.

Sounds more like stone evolutions only. How about the trade + item evolutions in there too?

Oh and...almost done training Asy (Shinpora). Then I have Cobalon and Waruvial. Then E4! I'm pretty excited about this team. There's no Derpfish to bring the team down into the gutter this time.

My post count is over 9000!
