Alright, started my challenge! Kind of troublesome start with a unobediant Onix, but it's alright now!

Falkner battle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hbVYs0jfic
Bugsy battle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdcacBvIqzU

Now standing just before Whitney, after spending 15 minutes to catch an Abra. My odd egg gift turned out to be a shiny Elekid, so I will use it ;D Even though it is not a rock type :3

Quick question about the .sav files.

Do you have to save in the game for the save file.
Or is it a saved state?

Sorry about being technologically impaired in advanced :p
It's a saved game (using in-game save), not a save state. The extension should be .sav or .sa1, .sa2, etc. Save states are .sg1 files, I believe.

I had a thought regarding the concerns of possible under-leveling on the part of 4th gen games. Since we will all have traded pokemon, we will be leveling up much faster due to the experience boost traded Pokemon get. So there should be no issue except that HG/SS players may be over-leveled by the end, but who really cares about that...?

If you're on an emulator, I have no clue. Myrrh is running emulator trades. I hardly have the time to even get on here and check how things are going. But there's a problem in that hardly anyone is signed up for games that are compatible, so hell, I can't even divy you guys up in groups. :/ Groups of 6 sure as hell ain't happening. Should have made this RBY only, honestly. Is anyone willing to switch games at this point? Since there are two people that can trade already, let's just use RBY. Is anyone playing on emulator willing to switch to RBY if they aren't already on it? Sorry, guys. Didn't really expect so few sign ups. If not, then...well, whoever is on FR and Emerald will have to switch to doing the in-game challenge because you can't trade with RBY or each other.

I can't even make the Wi-Fi group into a group...good God.

Oh, I thought that the Ruby/Emerald/Sapphire could swap as long as we downloaded the appropriate rom.
Actually, couldn't all of the emulator sign-ups alternate among games if needed?

I could switch though, I would just have to redo everything! haha
Just let me know if the first option I posed is possible.

RSE can trade with each other, but there's only one person on Emerald. Then there's another on FR and two with Red and Yellow respectively. I'd hate to have to make people completely swap games when they .sav file swap. "i wuz in kanto now i'm in hoenn guyz omg!!" Alternate games in the sign ups would have been a good idea, which is what we did last year iirc.

If you're okay with swapping to RBY, that'll work. Dunno what to do about the person on FireRed though...

Also, the event can be extended if need be, but I think October 5th was long enough, especially with B2W2 release next month as well as a regular challenge event (which you'll have a month to complete unlike this one lol).

There are programs that can trade pokemon between .sav files that would make FireRed/LeafGreen and R/S/E work with each other. I don't remember what they're called though...

We shouda let that guy who wanted to WIFI in. He might have been able to catch up, maybe...

Since there are only 3 WIFI players, I would suggest this layout:
Spoiler:
A-->B-->C-->A

Just rotate our Pokemon in a circle for a while. It will also give us a chance to play with our own Pokemon one more time before the end.

Kenshin is possibly dropping out if he can't get his WiFi to work, so I suppose if that happens, the two remaining could just swap back and forth. And I don't know what program Myrrh is using when it comes to emulator trading. I don't know his method, so I can't give any answers. You'll have to wait on him to respond. Sorry guys. :/

Ahw, so sad to see all the effort put in this and such a low amount of participation. I can't even imagine how frustrating that must feel for you guys.

On a better note, I had an easy Whitney battle! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GL7ouYfGV6Q

I don't mind switching to Ruby... (You could just have contacted me lol )
But, I'm already on the 4th Gym, well anyways it's ok to switch...

VBA Link can used to trade pokemon in Emulators...

So, am I gonna switch now?

How did you move on to gym 4 without trading? @_@ Anyway, that'll work. Now emulator group can be...well, a group! I don't know how to organize the 4 into a group so that you get your original team back, and I have to leave asap. :/ If someone wants to contact Myrrh to tell him to get his butt over here and try to get y'all organized...lol. Sorry I'm a crappy host. v_v I blame the damn GT being during school. Yes, I'm still bitter about that. lol

You are not a crappy host, it was just badly timed, and bad luck that less people didn't sign up. I think it's a really neat idea, and wouldn't mind seeing this challenge on the Challenge Forum. Gonna go kill beat Team Galactic now! They are really slowing me down. I swear, why are they after both of the first two gyms!

Haha, I didn't saw anyone on FireRed yet but I got two saves one in the 3rd Gym and one in the 4th Gym...

Also I'm finished with the 3rd gym in Yellow...

Myrrhman and I have decided that everyone is going to do the in-game version. I guess he's not gonna be file swapping, so yeah. If you've already hacked in your team and don't feel like having to switch to the in-game rules, then I'm sorry. You can just drop the challenge,or feel free to swap games. Because of the crap factor of this event, everyone will get the emblem regardless of progress. Just putting that out there...

Too bad that it was a little bit too chaotic, but a single week for an event like this is too low. I haven't even had any time to play after beating Whitney, but I will finish the challenge sometime. 'Don't worry, the next coming event will go better forsure! And I'll join it as long as I can monotype it >:D

Well, I guess I'm gonna drop out then. I was sticking it out for the Emblem really. I don't really want to do the in-game challenge, and it was definitely looking like no one else was gonna catch up in the WIFI section. I'm truly sorry your event didn't go better, and I look forward to your B2W2 event!
