I have two ideas:

1. You must pick a letter at the beginning of the challenge. You may only use pokemon that's species name starts with that letter.

2. You must pick a theme (i.e. pigs) and use only pokemon that fit into that theme.
Number one sounds fun, and I don't think I've seen it before. However, number two I think has been done and it is probably called the animal challenge or something.

What about a challenge in which you have to defeat the Gym Leaders and Elite Four using Pokémon that have a type disadvantage against them.

Example: Challenging Roxanne with Flying Pokémon, etc.

I've a couple ideas:

A Ditto only run.

A mono-attack run with Struggle (in the sense of, you can only use other moves on Wild Pokemon to get down to zero PP, but you can't gain experience from them). It'd be very difficult.

Or a (possibly solo Pokemon) run that basically forces you to use Pokemon with a base stat total of 300 or less. Which, for reference, makes the first forms of all the starters ineligible (though they can be used until an eligible team member is found).

Or a run that forces you to catch all your team members and all the legendary Pokemon with Poke Balls at full health.

I made rules for Swapping Team Challenge if someone want's to host it:
1. You start with team of 4 Pokemon. They must be different species.
2. After every gym, you need to box 1 your ORGINAL team member and capture a new one. (This means you cannot have your starter or other 3 Pokemon you first captured at E4)
3. No legendaries.
4. 2 HM slaves on party, but you can have multiple in box.
5. You can complete this challenge with any pokemon so no hacking.
-Additional rules-
1. Capture first Pokemon you see after gym.
2. Replace same type members. (If you have a Bulbasaur, you can replace it with Oddish and Koffing but you can't replace it with Rattata or Pidgey)

This would probably be more effective if you just enter in a solo challenge and say you're doing this for an added difficulty; I know someone beat one of my challenges with just a Pidgey.
Or a run that forces you to catch all your team members and all the legendary Pokemon with Poke Balls at full health.
This wouldn't be that hard, because I oftentimes basically do a solo/duo run for like red/blue with a Nidoking or Nidoking and my starter. Also you would be able to get event Pokemon.
My responses are bolded...

Well, The Nuzlocke Challenge Thread [R/S/E] accepts people that play Pokémon Fire Red and Leaf Green.

Haha, I might enter on Diamond or Pearl. idk yet. I really don't enjoy those games anymore though, so...yeah.

Also, the no Pokemon Center run comes to mind. You're not allowed to enter the Pokemon Center, so stock up on Potions, Ethers, and such. Teach new TMs and attacking move when you can...basically, you really gotta use your head for how you're going to do this one. I've seen it done on YouTube by someone. Interesting, I must say. I'd probably never try, but...

What about something called Pokemon survival, it would be the hardest challenge ever, no poke centers or marts, live off what you find in the wild, and if a Pokemon faints too bad, that's right 6 pokemon the whole game!
I was sort of joking but I'd like to see if someone could do it, *points at myrrhman*

Is there already a thread like this? If not, can I create it?

I hope you guys do realize that just because we come up with challenge ideas in this thread, it doesn't mean it has to be made. I don't want people running a ton of challenges and/or not entering what they start. A lot of challenges don't get approved just because of that one rule about participating. I have no tolerance for it. But if you can keep up with it and any other challenges you host, that's fine...just have fun completing them all.

Sorry, Sydian, I was just asking for permission to make that thread (now that I think about it, it's the wrong place to ask for permission to make a thread).

Nah, I just felt like I should say something about it. I see people make challenges all the time and they have a bunch of others and I think, "omg how can you do all that". I don't want you guys overloading.

I'll add that to my list of stuff to do. Right now I'm working on completing every Ultimate Monotype Challenge, and through this, I will eventually need a break.

Ya know, even though they make the games easier, I feel bad that legendary Pokemon get left out of challenges. Maybe add on a little rules to said legendary Pokemon, like keeping it ten levels under your other teammates (that would drive me nuts, but...) and only allowing one legendary if chosen. I normally don't like using legendaries, but in HGSS, it's just the novelty of having them follow me. =w=

Also, hope you guys like the new thread title. I figure that since the other section DCCs change titles, why can't we? (Well, this isn't a DCC, but CI&D sounds cool too, haha.)

I do indeed like the name of the thread now. But there's a couple of slight problems.

#1: Went is not active in this challenge. And that's breaking Sydian's rules.
#2: He also needs to update the OP with people who are active in the challenge, and make a champion section for those who have completed the challenge. I think that "gave an idea for challenge" constitutes active in the challenge, and "gave an idea for a challenge, and there is now a challenge because of them" constitutes champion.

You have no idea how hard I laughed at that. I was talking to someone on the phone and they were so confused when I tried to explain.

Yeah, Myrrhman has completed that challenge before. Except it was also a solo. I did it with Lapras.

Okay come on, I think its time we start innovating and make something AS GOOD AS NUZLOCKE, and don't anyone say "NOTHING'S BETTER THAN NUZLOCKE :p"
We've had some good ideas on here, but they aren't the titan that Nuzlocke is, there's got to be some way to create a real bond with your Pokemon, anyone have ideas.

Let's start with this-Only 1 fully evolved Pokemon allowed, now someone add on

Or go by weight. :o That sounds interesting though. Never had a suggestion like that.

Personally, I like random challenges better. Nuzlocke would make me way too sad. :( There are plenty of Nuzlockes though, so there's no point in making a new thread and just adding on that rule. It could be an added difficulty option in the threads that already exist, though.

Heres this:
List of Pokemon by Height
and this:
List of Pokemon by Weight


EDIT: Go to this thread, see what Pokemon you seem to be like, then use it in a solo run.
