I've been thinking occasionally about a letters challenge.

Right now, I'm thinking about 4 different types. (Extreme) Regular Letters, Single Letters, Reverse Letters, or (Extreme) Words.

Basically, with this you'd get a random set of 6 letters. You'd then pick out your pokemon based on them. You'd pick a pokemon who's name starts with that letter. Single letters is you pick one letter and only pick from that Pokemon with that starting letter. Reverse is... Well, I'm not so sure about that one. Would be to hard, since in this case you'd only be able to pick from ones who name ENDS with a picked letter. Words is a play on Letters. Basically, you pick letters that form a word.

For Words you'd be limited to however many letters is in the word. If its 4 letters, then 4 pokemon. 5, 5 pokemon. HM slaves wouldn't be allowed for any type of challenge though.

Extreme would be slightly different. Basically, you pick the first Pokemon that starts with a selected letter.

Could be cool. I'd take out the no HM slave rule, though. There are always a couple instances where people don't have the ability to beat the game because they don't have anyone that can learn a certain HM. I'd limit it to one, though.

What challenge are you doing? Route 118 is quite a ways away; you have to get 5 badges before you can get there. It also depends on how diverse your team is, how many Pokemon you have, and what levels you're planning on training them to. The more Pokemon you have, the easier it would be to hold off until 118 to get Electrike (or even just catch a Manectric). If you only have like 2 Pokemon for the challenge so far, or your Pokemon are all about even levels with the trainer/wild Pokemon, I would probably just catch it on 110. Also, what game are you playing on? If you're doing Sapphire, you might want some Electric power to counter Team Aqua's Water Pokemon (and Zubats). On Route 110, you catch Electrike's at 12 or 13, and it learns its first Electric Attack (spark) at 20. Or beat Wattson and get Shock Wave.

I would probably just catch it now. You don't HAVE to use it if you end up not liking its flow with your team or its too weak to compete or something like that. In that case, you just wasted like 1 or 2 balls, which isn't much of a loss at all. Then, you can catch it later on 118 and see if it suits you better.

Get it now. Get some EVs on it so that you don't have to worry about a weaker party member later in the game, cause by the time you get to Route 118, you'll be way ahead in terms of level, so why play catch up with Electrike then when you can go ahead and get it now?

Sydian, How could you? Catching a Pokemon and worrying about its EVs? You should be ashamed. I don't think I've ever worried about EV's (besides that one time that I wanted to try competitive battling, and it was so stupid that I quit after 1 Pokemon.

Catching it later just means that the rest of your team will be that much higher, and can help you train him. Don't catch him til you need him.

Also, I'm almost to 1,500! Gotta make it an epic post. What should I do for it?

Well my 2 main pokemon are slightly underleveled, I have to train up an Oddish right now as well. Also it's weak, having Tackle as it's only move. Besides, I'm playing Ruby, so no team aqua. I'm doing a scramble challenge btw :p. My assigned team is Oddish, Mightyena, Pelipper (who has to solo wattsons Magneton -.-), Ninetales, Spinda and Manectric. I am not scared of getting ahead in level a lot, since I'll be catching Spinda before Manectric as well. I might be slightly higher, but that can be grinded later too, WITH Spark, making it faster

So yeah, thanks for the help!

Mhyrrman, do a Victini Solo Run and post the "I've finished post" as your 1500th
I can't believe I still haven't beaten one gym on Syddy Claus, I must work on that!

I don't do B/W because I still haven't bothered finding a working ROM, but I'll do Celebi/Mew/Jirachi!

I don't think Syd is worried about specific EVs. Just any so that it has higher stats.

You don't know underlevelled until you do a challenge that involves time. GT8 solo...

I also have the goal of finishing my Hall of Fame Challenge by the end of the year.

Good luck on the solo challenges, is it a contest between you and myrrhman to see who wins first? I've always wanted to do all the monotypes for each generation but that is far away. I've done about 6

I believe I started the whole 151 solo thing first, but it's not a race. I think myrrhman is only doing the fully evolved pokemon, while I'm doing all 151, even the not fully evolved ones. x3

Yep, Inferno's right. I've done all the monotypes for RBY, GSC, and RSE, as well as about half of DPPt, and now I'm moving on to Solos. But, I play at 5000% speed, so I can't really do the unevolved ones, because I would forget to hit the B button SO many times. Also I don't really see what the big difference between doing a Bulbasaur solo and an Ivysaur solo is. Especially if you do Bulbasaur first, because they learn the same moves and everything, its just that Ivysaur's better. So why bother?

I did Starmie and Lapras solos (they're two of my favorite RBY Pokemon) a long time ago, and now I'm going back and finishing all the rest. I'm going in order and I'm on Venomoth (I'm pretty sure that's where I am). I think that's like 21 or something. Its in my sig.

I was thinking about only doing the fully evolved ones, but I'm a completionist, so it would bother me if I didn't do all of them. I think I'll run through the Christmas challenge, then start some solos again.

Ok so I have a challenge idea and I've done lots of research in the challenges forums and some on here to make sure that it hasn't already been done, and I will be able to participate in the challenge I just would like some feedback for some constructive criticism and such before I submit it. Ok so what I want to do is make a challenge where you can pick your entire team (it can be themed, favorites, or whatever peaks your interest.), and if you want you can make it so the person after you picks two of your Pokemon for added difficulty (most likely using the random Pokemon generator used in another challenge). You would be able to hack them in at low levels or trade an egg to your game or rom for the challenge. (just make sure you have at least three of them before you finish you're first gym battle.) After every two gym leaders you defeat you must release your highest level Pokemon and you may not catch him/her again (this is the main part of the challenge and has slight similarities with the N's challenge, Nuzcloke challenge, and the Pokebros Challenge.) This will mean if you want to grind your Pokemon you better hope that your either grinding all your Pokemon or that it is a Pokemon you don't mind losing. I have more to it to make it more lenient or more challenging, but for it being just an idea (that (after some polishing) I hope to submit/request to make a challenge) this message is becoming very long, and as bad of a habit as I make of making long messages I hate it >.<... Soooo if anyone ends up taking this idea and submitting it before I get a chance to then I want partial credit for the idea... nothing big just saying that "a loser helped in the making of this challenge"... literally I don't even request you put my name just saying that is enough lol xP... and ummm I've done a great deal of looking over past challenges and such, but if it is to much like other challenges posted already then I'm sorry.

So basically, you get to chose 6 pokemon and the user posting next gives you 2 more. Meaning you have 8 pokemon to train, which is imo a lot, especially in the beginning. Apart from that, I like the idea. You might just have to release a pokemon you need, making things interesting. After those 8 gyms you'd have 4 pokemon left, you could make an optional rule of not using the highest leveled pokemon after 2 of the elite four too, making you end up with 2 pokemon for the champion. Or a team could consist of 6 in total and make you have 2 left for the whole Elite four. Although I think it's not the greatest idea to pick 6 pokemon yourself and let somebody else pick 2 other, I probably would like to pick all pokemon myself.

Yeah, just what I'm thinking about it

0.0... No that isn't exactly what I meant... It was an optional requirement: For people who wanted it to be a little more difficult they could decide to just pick 4 pokemon and then they could ask for the people after them to randomly pick the other two... That would be optional not mandatory =)... But thanks for the feedback, and I like your idea of making sure they don't use their strongest for the last of the elite four... I was thinking of making another optional (not mandatory) rule for those who want to make it so when they go into a rival/gym match they must use their lowest level Pokemon (and if it dies go to the second lowest level Pokemon)... But yea you would be allowed to pick all the pokemon yourself if you want that would just be for those who want for some of the people who would like to have a chance at making the challenge harder for themselves lol xP... But seriously though thanks for the feedback =)

Well yeah, that seems okay, though I don't think you should do the rule yuo have to send out the lowest leveled first, since I don't think that would be fun. I think you should ask Sydian for approval of the challenge and then make a thread for it? :D And you're welcome for the feedback

Well that to was going to be an optional rule to for those who would want an extra challenge, because some people really aren't challenged enough by like 90% of these challenges so I want to give people the option to really test themselves if they feel they want to, and in regard to your last statement uhhh... Yea I asked for Sydian's feedback real quick and then after that I'm going to polish it up real quick and then send it in. =)

So yeah guys I'm back for my Summer Break (until Feb.) so how've y'all been? I'd like to say hello to all the people who joined after my vanishing.

I've been a frequent user of the Nuzlocke Forums, so I've been doing a plethora of Nuzlockes, but I'd like to know if there's any new and hip Challenges around the block, 'cause this Swablu needs some CHALLENGES. *shot for old joke*

No one's used that reference in forever! Also, jsyk, you don't ask me for approval and then post the thread. The thread has to be approved anyway. That's the approval process, lol. Posting ideas in here just gives you general feedback and helps better set up the challenge so that when I do get to check it out for approval, it'll be more likely to go through. I just deleted three challenges waiting on approval, actually. One made no sense, the other wasn't set up very well and would get confusing, and the last wasn't a challenge. It was an LP...and they were like "hopefully this doesn't get locked" lol :( Do people not read that threads here need approval before showing up? Silly!

So how are you Syd? Doing any challenges lately? As for myself, I think I might do the Syddy Clause Challenge soon, just figuring out which Region/Game~
