so, you mean you could use lapras, because it has no pre-evolution or evolutions.

I might join.. but not now.

I might try this on HeartGold, I've got a question first though.
Does that 'you must catch a legendary in the wild if you plan on using one' rule mean that we're allowed to trade eggs/cheat in for non-legendaries? If so, sign me up.

There are a few clarifications that need to be made:

1. Are Phione and Manaphy allowed, considering that events are allowed under rule 2 and neither of them evolves into the other?

2. Why are Rayquaza and the Sinnoh dragons (and every 5th gen legendary) allowed but the legendary birds banned? I understand Rayquaza considering it's at such a high level in RSE, but the Sinnoh dragons can be obtained at level 1 in HGSS.

3. Are Rotom's alternate forms allowed?

4. Is Regigigas banned under rule 3?

5. What's with your spelling?

I'm just a little crazy sometimes.
OK, a lot crazy all the time.

My romhacks and Essentials games are on hold until Essentials is updated.

You can cheat or trade your starter at the beggining and get a legal pokemon and you can trade eggs but no more hacking pokemon after the starter

im gonna do it on crystal which should be fun!

also different forms are allowed

Just wondering, why is it that hacking team members in is seen as worse than trading eggs, which may contain egg moves to remove the 'challenge' from the challenge? Is it simply the fact that it's 'cheating'?

Erm, I might pass then. By the way, you do know anyone who wants to do this on Pearl/Diamond who can't trade has a grand total of 6 non-legendary 'mons to choose from, right (most of which are unavailable until Solaceon at the earliest)?

I assume Mr. Mime, Sneasel, and Tangela are OK to use since none of them had evolutionary relatives in Generation II.

Out of interest, why have you added "-SAN" to your name, comes across as rather arrogant...

Unless you're entering or updating your challenge, please don't post in here. This is completely off-topic. If you want to ask him why he does that, send him a VM.

Ever heard of trading? Admittedly it's a bit awkward but it's quite doable.
