Hey guys, here's a new challenge I came up with.

RULES:
-Only pokemon from the first 5 routes may be caught (caves and forests count as routes, cities do not). Headbutting is fine, but surfing and fishing rods are only to be used in case you need a surfer (as per in the notes section, and even then not beyond good rod).

-Limit 2 captures per route, six pokemon total*

-No HM slaves! All captured pokemon must be used in battle**

-No trade (ingame or otherwise) or gift pokemon (not including starter). Not even for evolution purposes (i.e. no Alakazams)!

OTHER NOTES


*If a capture(s) is needed for REQUIRED pokedex reasons (i.e. in order to get HM 05 in RBY) then you may ignore the six pokemon rule, but all pokemon captured beyond your first six must be immediately released.

** Should you not be able to aquire or do not possess a pokemon who can use a necessary HM (fly and flash do not count) a dummy for that single HM may be caught, but it must permanantly replace one member of your current team. It also must be captured from the first route that that type may be caught (i.e. the first route you can fish for surf).

----When (rarely) applicable, breeding is allowed, however the offspring must permanantly replace one of the parents for the remainder of the run.
----For an extra challenge, combine this with Nuzlocke or unevolved runs, lol.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well that's all there is to it. Just let me know if you want to participate. I'll be doing it in my FIRE RED, if you care to join me. Just state the game you will be playing, and try to keep me posted on your current team. Thanks, and enjoy

Sounds like fun. Would Hack ROMs be all right to use?

Yes those are the correct routes, and yes ROMs are alright to use...but please stick the main games...no fan ROM games unfortunately or hacking to allow better pokemon on the first routes, lol.

Just one more question: Are you limited to catching your Pokemon in grass and on cave floors, or is it allowed to catch Pokemon with other methods (surfing, fishing, Headbutt, Rock Smash, Dual-Slot Mode) provided it's on/in one of the allowed areas?

Alright, I'll sign you up. In answer to Luigi-san, Headbutt is fine, but surfing and fishing rods are only to be used in case you need a surfer (as per in the notes section, and even then not beyond good rod). Dual Slot mode is sadly forbidden. How can you get to know the pokemon of the region if your using pokemon from somewhere else lol. (rules updated to include this statement).

Btw, just finished the run myself (as well as my black nuzlocke run lol). Final team was as follows:
Reptar (Charizard) :LV 52
Mufasa (Nidoking) : LV 53
Mariposa (Butterfree) :LV 51
Laserbeak (Pidgeot) :LV 49
Rattrap (Raticate) : LV 49
Porkins (Primeape) : LV 49

Good luck to all (I may carry on and do the run again in HG or B2...lol which ever comes first).
