The Pokeathlon is the only reason why I want to power through all the monotype challenges on SS. I want rock star athletes, man!

Try to Monotype on Conquest. I dare you. I tried once, and I can't bring up the willpower to try again. Difficulty 5/5.

I forgot this thread existed, tbh...

I tried bug and also grass type monotype runs in HGSS. The latter is particularly tough, especially in Johto. Try Bugsy's U-turning Scyther! @_@

I beat it though, including beating up Red with a mid 50s team. And a bunch of revives. =p

I've never done a monotype or a nuzlocke or anything, lol. I stick to the books when it comes to the typical Pokemon journey, I guess.

Challenges are quite fun and i have completed both a nuzlocke and a monotype. I find solo runs to be the best challenges though as nuzlockes can become very difficult.

Same here. Doing a Nuzlocke/Monotype challenge means deleting your save file, and I really hate doing that :(

I find them interesting to watch on YouTube, however.

I've started challenges, but never completed them for numerous reasons. I need to have some time to dedicate to them as well as have a stable emulator so I can play them. xD

I should try a monotype someday. those sound fun~

halp what do we talk about here I'm confused

If I were to do one, chances are it would be a monotype run. Probably the easiest to do, lol.

The closest thing I've done to a Challenge is complete one of the Elite Fours (I think it might have been HGSS but I could be mistaken) with a purely Water-based team. It was Milotic, Kingdra, Lanturn, Lapras, Gyarados and... I want to say Quagsire although I could be mistaken. Fun times, although I don't know if I'd do it with any other type, or again, for that matter.

I can't really find myself committed enough to do challenges. I've tried nuzlocke runs a few times before but never found them as enjoyable as standard runs.

I've tried to do a Nuzlocke run in Pokémon Emerald before, but I kind of just gave up on it by the time I got to Mauville City. All of strongest Pokémon had fainted by then, so I was required to have them removed from my team. After that, Wurmple and Poochyena were the only Pokémon that I was left with. Also, I've defeated the Elite Four once in Pokémon Ruby with Swampert only. I'm not exactly sure if that counts as a challenge, but it was kind of a hard task for me. d:

Well, as I said in my introduction thread, i've completed a few Nuzlockes, and one Monotype not here (not counting the ones i'm doing for the Ultimate Monotype). And a few No Evolutions runs, also.

And i've looked into more challenges, so you can say i'm quite into those types of playthroughs.

That would be the solo pokemon challenge so I'd say it certainly counts! I myself actually finished a Solo Furret challenge on White and I'm now doing a Solo Porygon2 challenge since I enjoyed it so much haha. ♥

If y'all are gonna talk about challenges, I'm gonna move this to Challenges!

I had a bad day, so I think I'll work on my Gender Discrimination challenge a bit. See if it can get my mind off stuff.

Hey thread, nice to see you again! Poor Challenges has been lonely without you to brighten our day....

How long has it been? Year? 2 years?

tbh, I thought this thread had died somewhere. It wasn't in here at least! It has been a while since it got moved to Challenges though, haha.

Edit: I think I accidentally left the redirect on this one OOPS

ROMs are the most conventional because you don't suffer from "corrupted save file" & "battery ran dry" errors, but I guess it's not the perfect for challenges tbh, coz some people like me can't stop using savestates, I don't abuse them but I use them occasionally & always feel guilty

I don't usually play ROMs on my PC, I prefer playing them on my PSP; on the go especially games like Pokémon & Super Mario...
