St. Patrick's Day Challenge will be hard for me, using a Caterpie and all... Doesn't help when my rival has a Charizard who hits SE on all three of my Team Members. Oh well, that's how the cookie crumbles I guess.

I'm just happy I actually finished a challenge for once. >:o No, even better. I completed two challenges, while doing them and another game at the same time. Now, back to my second playthrough of Black...then the Favorite Challenge gets its reboot sometime next month. :D I should probably make my new list of favorites and include the gen V stuff. Something tells me that this list will be difficult...

Been thinking about a TinyCup Challenge.

Only Pokemon under 3 feet tall could be used, based by the Pokedex. (I say 3 feet because any smaller and you have issues with the available pokemon in some generations).

Any opinions on that?

Since Spring and Easter is coming up after March, why not have an event where you use Pokemon that can be applied to Spring (flowers, baby animals) and Easter (eggs, pastel colors)?

You have to use either:
***First stage/pre evo. Pokemon
***Pokemon in the following egg groups: humanshape, fairy, plant, bug
***Pokemon in the following color groups: pink, yellow, green, blue, white.

Or, you can be adventurous and do a combination of all four: All Pokemon must be in their first stage, in the the 4 egg groups, and of the 5 colors.

Argh, haven't had as much time as I would like lately. I want to do some more challenges, but I guess I'll have to wait. I'm currently taking a little break from challenges, but then I'll get right back to what I was doing. :D

I'm on challenge break right now. I'm just so busy with my Pokemon White right now. I hope to start challenging myself sometime in April. First I have to finish my Dexter challenge and do the the Unova part of my Flying Ultimate Monotype and then what?

I think a theme team would be awesome

Like someone in the forum who wants to play can name the game they are going to play, they also name the type of team they want.

It could be anything from 'cute team' to naming a television show or video game they want their team to reflect. I thought of making a themed team but the problem is there wouldn't be much challenge cause I'd try justifying any pokemon that I wanted on the team to having something to do with the theme, so I was thinking other people in the thread can decide what your team should be depending on what you want.

The thread starter can pick pokemon for teams that revolve around words, and if its based on some sort of TV show or canon they are unaware of other people in the forum can suggest teams.

That's not a bad idea, if people who decide to undertake the challenge, have creativity and aptitude to take on an actual challenge. As in, a "Uber tough team" or an "all red" team wouldn't really be in the spirit of the challenge.

There would be no point in someone suggesting a monotype or monochromatic since those challenges are already in place

or people who wanna take the challenge the forum leader generates a theme for them

Like Demon, Reptile, Angry

I want a Final Fantasy X team

Now I feel like getting back into challenges, but I'm having time issues. ;_; I really want to do a solo challenge, for some reason. Maybe finishing up the one I'm already doing?

I say finish what you're doing before you move on. /needs to finish lots of challenges!

This thread is so dead.



Maybe that will give it life. :)

I say that we need to get this place active over the summer, when our lives are free of time constraints. I was thinking we can each make challenge logs, or something along the lines of that.
I'll elaborate on the idea later, as I thought of it at 2 AM. Anyhow, here's to a summer of:

Well, you can only blame yourself. You're the one that gave it the title 'Come in and Die'. The thread was just doing as you instructed.

Well then, Man of Myrrh, what do you suggest the new title of this thread shalt be?

It should be 'Challenges: Initiate and Defeat' or 'Challenges: Initiate and Destroy'

That way, people would have to do the challenges, because that's the name of the thread.

I put Camels Igniting and Destroying...I think that's close enough. :) Camels is obviously code for challenges, if you couldn't tell.

Yeah, it makes sense. I recently did a challenge with a Camerupt. Makes sense on all levels.

See, it works. :) Also, just a reminder for anyone doing the Green, Gold, and Booze event. The deadline to finish is the 31st of March (12 AM Central time) otherwise you miss out on the emblem. I don't wanna give an emblem to people that signed up and didn't even finish. It makes it seem like you're just signing up just for the emblem and I feel that they should be earned.

/runs to add the time on the thread because I just realized I didn't :x

Ah, Camerupt. I've wanted to use it in a challenge, since like, forever. I've decided that I'll put one on my team when the R/S remakes are released, provided they actually are in development and
are planned to be released. Camerupt has a pretty awesome design, although I'd like to see a pure Ground type dromedary camel, in the near future.

Le gasp, another double post by Syd!

I fully intend on doing the GG&B Challenge as soon as I finish either my current challenge (UMC Electric, I'm on Sinnoh) or White, in which I just beat N in his castle. But I have to do so much grinding for it... Hmph. I think the UMC would be easier.

Weekend, where art thou weekend? D:
Speaking of being active over the summer, you guys would probably be annoyed with how active I am going to be. D; /hasnolife
I'm really considering betting on how many challenges I can complete during the three months I have off.
