I'll Nuzlocke with you. Although you have the advantage, I don't know a thing about the Pokemon, other than I'm picking Pokabu. Not Tepig, Pokabu.
I've had experience with Isshu Pokemon, as I've played on a ROM once or twice. While I'm not going to give you an extensive description of Unova and it's Pokemon, but I am going to tell you that you better be damn sure that your Pokemon can handle ANYTHING, before you challenge the 2nd gym. I'll be using Oshawott, as Tepig's name is sub-par and Daikenki's amazing design and power is far too hard for me to resist.

If it were me, I wouldn't do any challenges on the first go and enjoy the game first before I do any challenges like the Nuzlocke. The Nuzlocke itself seems pretty hard or something idk.
Nuzlockes honestly aren't too hard if you're careful and value each of your Pokemon. The reason I'm choosing to do one, is because Nuzlockes tend to give me a greater appreciation for my Pokemon and a viable reason to grind.

This place needs more love from me. :D
Anyway, I started a Ruby solo run, and since I'm using a cartridge of Ruby, it will be a very slow run. I've already made it to two badges, with me being Awesome (I named myself that), and using a Shroomish named Florence, since that's the most manly name out there. :)

I love names like that. Once, I named a Machop by the name of Mercy.

It's fun to use those sorts of names, like when I speak to main people, it's like "Who are you then? ... ... .. .. .. .. ... ... .. Oh, so you're Awesome!" I love that! Also I just chose Florence since it's a Male Shroomish, and everyone knows that Florence is the manliest of manly names out there! :D

Did someone already mention this:

Only Required Challenge

Only fight required trainers and no wild grinding. Anything else goes.

Well since the Combined Solo Challenge hasn't been updated yet, and there are no new posts there and I wanted to void double posting, I will just tell you in a small summary what has happened quickly.
Florence is now level 31 and I have just defeated Wattson, which was a long battle, but not very hard.


Florence @ Everstone
Level: 31
Nature: Quirky
~ Mega Drain
~ Bullet Seed
~ Headbutt
~ Leech Seed

I'm planning a Leech Seed/Spore/Giga Drain/Return set for the future.

Doing a mono grass on black, which turns out it's going to be very hard xD. I got 4 gym disadvantages, trio gym, flying gym, ice gym and Dragon gym. Also, not sure on what team I should take. I got a Snivy evo right now, but there are a lot of others available. Maybe Forrethorn, but that evolves very late and is available late I think. I do want that season deer though.

I decided last night that I would start making my challenge updates more...pretty. xP I'm currently working on a decent-looking CSS to use for it.
I'm also kind of rushing it because I really want to get started on Gold

Has anyone ever thought about doing a challenge where they acquire 2 pseudo legendaries in the beginning and only use those two for battling?

That would be real hard due to most not evolving till past 30 then again past 45.

It wouldn't be that hard as if you only use two Pokemon they'd hit Lv30 in no time.

It'd basically be a limited Duospecies challenge. :S

Good point, but what if there was a minimum of 4, but that would limit you to gen III and later.

It still wouldn't be that hard. Considering they're some of the strongest Pokemon in the game, and if the rules state you'd have to get them before say the second gym, then you'd have to hack them into your game and use them. It's pretty much a Duo Pokemon challenge with just better Pokemon.

Argh, can't make another post in the St. Patrick's Challenge thread until someone else does. D: I'm dying to make a post, for some reason.
and I really want to finish Emerald so I can see if HeartGold might actually save for me

I just bought White, so I'll probably be occupied for a while instead of doing challenges.

What about a 2 type, 3 poke challenge?

Like

Dewgong (Ice, Water)
Slowbro (Water, Psychic)
Jynx (Psychic, Ice)



If anything it's fun to come up with combos.

I think the dual-type challenge is like that already, or something like that. I don't really like that idea either.

And guys, do you know how hard it is to beat Flannery with just a Shroomish? I mean I took maybe ten times at the least to try and beat her, but I was just being defeated by all those sunny day boosted Overheats, which were annoying. I mean I knew as soon as I could survive one I would be fine, but it never happened. D:

Ugh, sounds painful. I guess you're just going to have to do some more grinding.

I've already beaten her with Shroomish, but it was just tough. I was lucky enough that there was no Sunny Day up, and her first attack with Torkoal was Attract, and I got a lucky Leech Seed in, as well as poisoning. I was just stalling her in the end.

I've got a pretty good idea for a challenge. Not sure if I can make it though. I'm already doing a Monotype, Special pairs, and I plan on starting the St. Patricks day one too.


Anyway, only using pokemon that existed in Gen I. For obvious reasons this cannot be done in Gen I and V. For RSE you can hack in something obtainable IN THAT GAME that is normally available before the third badge.

I don't know what to think about the challenge. Maybe restrict it more to that the user can only use Pokemon in that generation which are in the game's Pokedex, so playing RSE you wouldn't be able to use Pokemon such as Nidoran or Venonat since they're non-obtainable in that generation.

My idea for a new, and gimmick challenge. I would call it The (Insert user Sydian)'s Favourite's challenge/ Really similar to the favourite's challenge, but you must use someone else's favourites instead of your own.
