Paragraph 1: See above
Paragraph 2-3: I think we're all going to use MSN. That seemed to be the most viable for everyone. VM/PM me your MSN email and I'll add you up.
Paragraph 4: See above. If nobody has set a record this long since the game has been out, I'm sure it can wait a bit longer. And plus, if we do it right, not only will we have the first record, but we'll have the record for a very, very long time.

I agree. If everyone gets into this MSN group that I made, we can do it there. I was thinking of trying to have scheduled times that we can all meet. Otherwise... Actually, you know what? I have a better idea. Hold on a sec.


Feel like linking me to the Alpha Fan MSN group? And congrats on figuring out how to make a group that quickly. Anyhow, I'll probably get back to Nuzlocking Sapphire, although I'll definitely leave in some time for Alpha Fan.

I thinked a challenge and named it Decisive Challenge. Because in this challenge, you must decide six pokemon and only these pokemon can be caught or obtained. So your starter and five more pokemon you want to use.

I wish I had the courage to use 6 Pokemon. The most I can do now is 5. And that was painful.

Ever since I heard of what a HM Slave is from challenges, and starting D/P/Pt, I haven't been able to use six Pokemon ever since, unless it's for training, and a certain challenge harnesses that idea. I just think the concept of a HM Slave/Bibarel is brilliant and a hard concept to let go of.

That's because you grew used to doing challenges,where quick training is needed,thus 6 pokemons would make training slow.

I have to have a full team of six, challenge or not, unless the challenge I'm doing prohibits it. I'm perfectly fine with training a full team of six though, and I like having a lot of diversity. I remember trying a solo-run in LeafGreen long ago and I made it to Cinnabar before breaking down and going out and catching 5 more Pokemon, lol. Venusaur was at level 70 at the time though.

My OCD pretty much prevents me from doing monotypes or Nuzlocke and heading into the league without 6 Pokemon. Even if I know I will destroy the E4, it's nice to have an insurance policy or two, in case the team's starts fall due to crits.

The concept of an HM Slave just kind of came to me, I guess. Why give your useful team members bad, unremovable moves, when a weak Pokemon that you can also use to take a hit, can learn all of them.

Also, I reccomend the other Slave users read this and feel terrible about themselves.

I think there should be one for a color theme, like have a certain number of Pokemon on your team be a certain color, say like blue, green, red, yellow and so on...

I think we had that challenge once here, and I think it died. x( Boy, do I need to catch up on some sort of challenge now. Maybe I'll start up my Nuzlocke again.

I remember there being a few challenges involving colors, although most of them have died by now. I guess you're welcome to start one, but I'd make sure that the original post explains the team requirements for the challenge and how to beat it.

Man you people got this all wrong
There needs to be more challenges where when Laure enters
Laure automatically wins
Just for the coolness of being Laure

And to Hikari10 there was a monochrome challenge it was running pretty slow though since I'm the only one who beat it, but if you look under Dream Themes there is a Rainbow challenge that incorporates 6 colors and it's pretty pro

Oh and to

Why in the world would he hint about a challenge which is meant to be a surprise? That just gives you time to prepare for it, which isn't much of a challenge if you ask me.

Fear not, progress is being made! I'm creating the layout for the GT8 Challenge event, albeit TF2 is distracting me and I assure you, it will be super awesome!

Also, Sydian is a guy, what were you thinking saying he was a girl? xD

You see, Syd is what you would call a "gender bender", someone whose gender is unknown, or makes us think that they're whatever gender and try to fool us. :P As for challenges, I should really start completing one, I haven't done anything challenge wie since I finished Favourites. Maybe I'll start up my Solo challenge again. :/

I love how I missed the discussion as to whether I'm male or female, lol.

This post is totally not a test to see if the double posting is over with.
