Twas the night before Challengemas, and all through the threads
Not a Petilil was stirring, not even an Elekid
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that St. Syddy would soon be there...


Syddy Claus' Challenge

No more poems I promise. Welcome, challenge regulars and non-regulars alike! In this thread, you will find the most generous challenge of all. You see, your normal Jingle Bells moderator, who is normally strict on these challenge events, isn't going to be a Grinch this year (disregarding the Grinch theme he might use later cough cough) and give you all some great news with this challenge! What changes might there be, you ask? Although there aren't too many, I'm sure they will make a big difference in your challenge experience. The changes for this event are as follows...

You will have from November 26, 2011 to January 5, 2012 to finish this challenge.
If you get at least five badges in the game you are playing, you will still receive the emblem.

Now of course, we have to keep with the Christmas theme on the Pokemon you use. Similar to the Halloween event, you will have certain criteria your team members must meet. However, unlike the Halloween event, there are many to choose from here. You must choose at least 4! What options do you have? Here they are:

- Red Pokemon (list here)
- Ice Type Pokemon
- Pokemon from an in-game trade
- Pokemon given to you in-game (starters count as gifts)
- Green Pokemon (list here)
- Pokemon hatched from an egg received in-game
- Shiny Pokemon (good luck if you try for this one!)
- This lil guy.
- White Pokemon (list here)
- Your favorite Pokemon
- Your best friend's favorite Pokemon
- Legendary Pokemon
- This big guy.
- The present you don't want (least favorite Pokemon)
- The present you didn't expect (Pokemon you've never used)

Once you select your slots though, please do not change them, unless you have a legitimate reason to do so. (unable to get a certain Pokemon, etc.)

And now the standard list of rules...

1. This challenge is only for the following games: Red, Green, Silver, Ruby, Emerald, FireRed, LeafGreen, Diamond, SoulSilver, and White.
2. Trading is allowed, as much as you want. Get the team you want to use!
3. Hacking a Pokemon in is allowed, emulator players only though.
4. Pokemon must always have a held item, if at all possible. Try wrapping them and seeing if your Pokemon can unwrap their gift.
5. Challenge is complete, for all games, after the first round of the E4. Five badges will still get you the emblem, despite not being a completed challenge.
6. Final updates must be posted no later than 11:59 PM Central Time (GMT -6) on January 5, 2012. You have more than enough time for this challenge, so hopefully there won't be last minute updates!

Haha, the ones you pick have to be different. No double doses! And I will add Stantler to the list. Thanks for pointing that out. :) Updated the challenger list also.

I WILL finish the challenge this time. I just keep getting distracted. Couple of questions, though.

Q1: You said "choose up to four". Do you mean "choose at least four"? You have 6 on your team.

Name: myrrhman
Game: Red
Team: Charizard (In game event)
Lapras (Ice Type)
Nidoking (Mah Favorite!)
Farfetch'd (In game trade)

Q2: Will this team work? Lapras and Charizard are both in game events, but Lapras also satisfies ice type.

At least four. I thought I put that. Oh well. I was rushing a bit cause I had a game to go watch. I always have to have six, or I'll explode. lol

Perfectly fine.

Since it's a valid option now, could I add a Stantler to my team? And could I replace my Pachirisu with a Togekiss? I apparently missed the held items rule and...well, it didn't really occur to me until just now that I'll have a much better electric type in Rotom.

Also, if we have to trade/hack, would you rather we wait until points in the game where it would make sense for the mons to appear?

Yeah, that's fine, especially since you brought it up. :) And you can if you want. I will probably do that, but that's just me. If you would rather trade/hack all your stuff in one fell swoop, be my guest.

Okay, I've got a team now.

Stantler (reindeer!) - big guy
Manaphy (sea angel!) - legendary
Maractus (tree!...kind of.) - green
Charizard - red
Butterfree - white
Beartic (polar bear!) - ice

I guess I will start with Stantler, then get the rest as I go. Maractus and Beartic will be caught normally, the rest hacked in whenever I feel like it.

Note that I spent a very long time tonight trying to find a good working ROM, so this update is shorter than I meant it to be. :(

Christmas in Unova
Part 1: The Gift


So I start up my game, and immediately get thrown into the basic explanation of what Pokemon is and why I should care about them as my friends and not as battling creatures.



Did anyone else notice she kinda looks like a skinnier Mrs. Claus? Connections...

So then she asks me for my gender, I went with girl because I'm a girl and I feel weird playing someone other than my own gender. Took me a little bit to come up with a name (MrsClaus was too long and so was MaryChristmas), but in the end I came up with:



Thought of the name because I had a friend when I was in high school who was named Noelle because she was born on Christmas Day.

Juniper introduced me to my best friends (who I've supposedly known for years but also just met now). THEN SHE GIVES ME A CHRISTMAS PRESENT OMG.



Of course, as the most awesome of the characters, I get to open the present because opening it is the most fun. Despite the lack of visible airholes, there are Pokemon inside! It happened to get delivered to my house so I get to pick which one I'd like first. I pick out my cute little Snivy and then get to fight Bianca and Cheren. Of course I whoop their butts (is there anyone who loses on the first fight?). My mom cleans up my room for me. Typical Christmas, parents doing all the work while the kids go out and play.

I'm blocked off from the lab for now so I go visit silly Bianca and get to see her parents tell her she can't be a trainer. So sad. So she runs out with me and goes to the lab, where I meet them and go inside. I finally get the chance to nickname my Snivy.



Juniper gives us the regular spiel of "catch all the Pokemon for me!". I'm assuming it's because it's Christmas and she's going to give the Pokemon to deserving children. She then leads us out to Route 1 and shows us how to catch Pokemon, and gives us Poke Balls. I decide from then on that I'm only going to use Poke Balls, because look at them! They look so much more like Christmas than any other ball!

So I know the first gym is going to be tough without that Panpour that I didn't account for so I decided to do a bit of grinding on Route 1 until I felt I was high enough level or got bored. I also gave Garland a Potion to hold because that was all I had.



Garland thinks it's the worst gift ever. I'm sorry Garland ;;







So at that point I decided that was enough and moved on to tell Bianca and Cheren that I had failed the capture contest. Aww. Just then, I got a call from Professor Juniper that had all four of us in the conversation even though the three of us were all right next to each other:



I THINK SHE'S GOING TO SHOW US CHRISTMAS LIGHTS YOU GUYS

To be continued...
