Oh Lord, I can't wait til I get GPGD back...nothing has happened in DPPt! Except I double posted. That's one good thing about not modding Challenges is that I don't double post in this thread...:) But I also can't lol at any unapproved challenges, and that's sad...Erik can though.

I did some pretty cool stuff in DPPt, once upon a time. I did, however, get bored of it after a while.

I never really visited D/P/Pt at all, except for that one time I wrote a guide for it, and it wasn't even for the games. Well it was, but I didn't even create the thread in said forum area. :/

Well, I think I'll be finally posting that Offensive/Defensive Swap challenge, as well as doing some challenges. :D Like some solos.

How about some N challenge?

-You must liberate your Pokemon after every gym badge.
-After doing so you must capture, 6 new party members, those members must be used to beat the next gym
-If any of your Pokemon faint it is dead, and must be liberated.
-No re-battling trainers, unless the story requires it.
-No fighting wild pokemon, they are your friends.
-You must catch the legendary pokemon of the game, and challenge the elite four with it. It cannot die, and it must be in your party at all times. Kanto = Mewtwo if your were wondering....

Sounds pretty difficult. One thing though, you can't get Mewtwo until after the E4. Unless you meant the challenge in Kanto games ends with defeating the E4 a second time?

I dunno about that N challenge. It seems awfully familiar with that City to City challenge if you ask me. Or at least, the same thing, except it seems like you have more freedom in the Pokemon you can use at least. :o

Yes exactly, you would have to re-fight the Elite Four, or I can make the Legendary Pokemon be Articuno, Zapdos or Moltes, and you would have to use one of them.



@Alt: It is the City to City challenge fused with the Nuzlocke challenge. But with more difficulty like no grinding (because you can't fight Wild Pokemon nor re-battle trainers) and after you liberate the Pokemon, you must capture 6 more team members, and some how use them in battle, without training them before hand. That sounds pretty difficult, even more so in B/W since that Level Jump after the E4 and you must catch 6 more members, plus the chance of dying.

I get the idea, except the "If a pokemon faints, its dead" with i don't see fitting N (I beat the E4 for the 1. time today, and he doesn't strike me as a person who would release a pokemon because it loses a battle)

Well, N uses completely different teams each time you fight him (except for Klink -> Klinklang), so that might actually fit. So switching the teams after each gym is good, and the releasing when fainting is more of a standard rule for this kind of challenge I think, although I see your point. Maybe N would see it as if it faints, it wants to be free?

Exactly, N is't the person to see a Pokemon suffer, so he releases it.

Oh, well, you've got a good argument there, fine with me too now.

Since my last idea wasn't kinda approved, I came up with another idea, same hardness, and maybe a bit more annoying, but you can have POWERFUL Pokèmon for your games, if you're used to play challenges on originals :D

The EVs challenge.

1. Every member of your team MUST have at least a stat (the one you prefer) at Max EVs.
2. You can have every Pokèmon you want, not Legendaries.
3. You can hack if you need, but in the 1st Route.
4. You can also hack the Power items.
5. Breeding and Egg Moves are allowed.

What do you think?

EVing for a challenge sounds like...not really a challenge. That'd be like just normal EV training, but with a few restrictions.

After Finally getting back to my UMC Normal, I defeated Red with a team of Level 55s. That Snorlax was a pain the kiester. But I finally got lucky with Dynamic Punch.

I kinda like the sound of the N challenge, but maybe take out the no fighting wild pokemon rule. That would just make it a bit too challenging.

I personally like the idea of challenges having optional rules. The 'No Wild Battles' rule for the N challenge would make a great optional rule.

And I agree with Syd... EV challenge sounds almost.. easier than normal? Because you would focus on EV training Pokemon in stats that they would be better with.

I'm actually considering a Hall of Fame challenge on Emerald. But I want to see if Syd says it's worth doing first?

You know what's hilarious? Someone did send in an N challenge (sorta) a few weeks ago. But it was deleted because whoever sent it didn't have their sign up in it. ^-^

That is hilarious! XD; People really ought to read the rules a bit more.

There should be a challenge, in which you must have at least 2 of certain Pokemon in your team. These Pokemon should be like Quilava, Smeargle, Furret, Umbreon, Lampent, Petilil etc. :3

Of course not. It could also be called a "weak, but cute" challenge, where you must use weak Pokemon, which are also cute. Maybe some Pokemon like Togetic, Darumaka, Whismur, Omanyte etc.

As for Hall of Fame challenge, I'm pretty sure the only rules is that you must run through the Elite Four with every single Pokemon, or at least their evolved forms. You wouldn't be able to trade/hack or anything, and you'd have to train them from scratch. Also, it's a good idea to make it so people choose your Pokemon through topics you want, like a Dual-type Pokemon, or a Pokemon found in the Dream Yard etc.


Also, Whismur = Vuvuzela for nickname?

That is a great name for Whismur.

Okay so I posted a blog about the Hall of Fame Challenge which can be found:
