Alrighty, I don't know if this has been done before but I haven't seen it on the forum, so here is the BST challenge! Essentially, the rule is that you are not permitted to use any Pokemon with more than 500 BST in your playthrough (500 is allowed however), at any time. The full list of banned Pokemon is as follows:
Banned Pokemon
Spoiler:
All Legendaries (except Phione)
All fully-evolved Starter Pokemon
All fully-evolved Pseudo-Legendary Pokemon
All Eeveelutions
All of Rotom's Alternate formes
Aegislash
Aerodactyl
Aggron
Arcanine
Archeops
Aurorus
Avalugg
Blissey
Braviary
Chandelure
Cloyster
Conkeldurr
Crobat
Dusknoir
Eelektross
Electivire
Excadrill
Exeggutor
Florges
Flygon
Gallade
Gardevoir
Gigalith
Gliscor
Gogoat
Gyarados
Haxorus
Hippowdon
Honchkrow
Kingdra
Klinklang
Krookodile
Lapras
Lickilicky
Lucario
Luxray
Machamp
Magmortar
Magnezone
Mamoswine
Mandibuzz
Mienshao
Milotic
Ninetales
Noivern
Porygon-Z
Porygon2
Probopass
Pyroar
Rhyperior
Roserade
Shuckle
Slaking
Snorlax
Starmie
Steelix
Tangrowth
Tentacruel
Togekiss
Tyrantrum
Vanilluxe
Volcarona
Walrein
Weavile
Yanmega
Zoroark

As fate would have it, all NFE Pokemon are allowed with the exception of Porygon2 (yes, even Rhydon).

Note that as all Pokemon in RBY have much lower BST values due to the singular Special stat, the above challenge will ignore RBY.

RBY Rules:
Since a couple of people have requested it, I have added up each Pokemon's BST in the first generation by doubling their Special stat (thereby giving them an effective Sp Def stat to add to their BSTs). Due to the stat changes of GSC, some RBY Pokemon are legal that are not in later games (eg. Snorlax), and vice-versa (eg. Alakazam). Here is the full list of bans in Red, Blue and Yellow if you wish to do this challenge in one of those games:
Spoiler:
Alakazam
Arcanine
Articuno
Blastoise
Chansey
Charizard
Cloyster
Dragonite
Exeggutor
Flareon
Gengar
Gyarados
Hypno
Jolteon
Lapras
Magneton
Mew
Mewtwo
Moltres
Ninetales
Omastar
Starmie
Tauros
Tentacruel
Vaporeon
Venusaur
Victreebel
Weezing
Zapdos


There we have it! You could combine this with a Nuzlocke to make it extra-difficult, or as a standalone challenge. If you grab an everstone in your challenge, that could be particularly useful to stop things like 2nd-stage Starters or Vigoroth from evolving and becoming illegal. Sign up and I'll add you to the list, just say your username, the game you are playing through, and any additional rules you wish to impose on yourself (such as Nuzlocke rules, etc etc).

Current Challengers:
Spoiler:

Gen 2

Gen 3
Heroes and Cons - Ruby

Gen 4

Gen 5

Gen 6


Champions:
Spoiler:
KoboraX - Silver


----------

I'll start off, doing a stat-limit playthrough of Ruby! I'll post my first bit of progress soon. Special thanks to Jak for the approval!

Okey-dokey, you've been added to the challengers list!

----------

Name: HeroesAndCons
Game: Ruby
Extra Rules:
- Nuzlocke standard rules, with one exception - if the Pokemon I encounter is illegal, or would evolve by level to an illegal Pokemon, I can disregard it and look for a Pokemon that would be suitable; I can only do this once per route, however.
- Using the Universal Randomiser, I have turned all Trade evolutions into Level evolutions, though the likelihood of this being necessary in Ruby is pretty low.

Quote:
Part 1: All your crap Pokemon are belong to us
Name: Jackson
Starter: Treecko (Colton) - Male - Lv 5 - Calm Nature - Overgrow

Grinded Treecko to Lv 7 on Route 101
Oldale Town: Obtained Potion, bought Potion x4, Antidote x2
Beat May on Route 103 with Colton Lv 7.
Went back to Littleroot and obtainec Pokedex, Pokeball x5, Running Shoes

Route 101: Caught Wurmple (Debra) - Female - Lv 2 - Hardy Nature - Shield Dust
Route 103: Caught Zigzagoon (Cindy) - Female - Lv 3 - Bold Nature - Pickup

Not a big start but I'm not gonna rush it, since BST limit + Nuzlocke rules = pain.

Here's Part 2 of my run. For anyone who wants to do their own BST-limit challenge, remember to check what is banned or not banned in the OP so you don't possess an illegal Pokemon on your team.

Hmm...since Gen 1 "Special" doubled for both Sp. Atk and Sp. Def, you could in theory just double the special stat when calculating BST, couldn't you? I just like having the Gen 1 option if I can =D

Not so much. That WOULD work if every Gen 1 pokemon's special defense had stayed the same in the transition from Gen 1 to Gen 2, but alas they did not, so it's more difficult to find a threshold that doesn't either allow too many superpowered Pokemon or be too restrictive, especially in the first generation. Nidoking/Queen and Clefable, for example, are mediocre at best yet have higher BST (even in RBY) than Alakazam, who is a monster in that generation and nigh-unkillable. Really, if I did allow RBY I'd have to implement other additional rules to balance it out, which would be too complicated and undermine the challenge itself, which is one simple rule and nothing more.

Plus in RBY you can literally blast through the entire game with any decent psychic type, including Hypno, Starmie or the aforementioned Alakazam - all of which would be legal in this challenge. There would be no challenge unless I additionally banned Psychic types, which would leave you with a choice of about 15 fully evolved Pokemon in the whole game.

What I'm saying though is calculate it as if the Special stat just counted twice-for example Alakazam effectively had a 135 base Sp. Atk and Sp. Def in RBY, which essentially gave it a BST of 540 back then. And Hypno really had a total of 525 so it couldn't be used either.

But its really not a big deal, and would be pretty weird now that I think about it. Pretty much every physically attacking pokemon (looking at you, Snorlax and Machamp) had serious issues due to no special defense in that generation, and any specially-oriented pokemon was crazy powerful. Even Gyarados had a beastly Sp. Attack back then, haha.

Ah, I see. Truth be told though, with the special split in Gen 2 many pokemon got nerfed hard, while others got a major boost, so even doing this 500 wouldn't be suitable really, I'd have to work out a good value that would ensure it still balanced out fairly well (which quite frankly I CBA doing). Still, you've got FR/LG if you want a Kanto advanture, and they are much more balanced in terms of legal Pokemon as well as encounters, so I don't see much problem in ignoring RBY here; if FR/LG didn't exist it would be another matter entirely.

Fair enough, although you could do one on an earlier game in the meantime. I'll be sure to add your challenge as soon as you post it.

My Black cart is estimated to arrive on Friday, so I'll start White on Wednesday and alternate days for a while.

(Interesting note: no Gen V mons have exactly 500 BST. Seismitoad is the highest-BST legal Pokemon in B/W at 499 BST.)

Question: Can I hack in certain pokemon I want if they are regularly found in-game? For example, Heracross is very difficult to find, so am I allowed to put it in the game?

Planned team for reference:

Heracross
Rhydon
Dragonair
Lanturn
Scizor
Fearow

Well, Johto is done. Just gotta do Kanto now, and the run is complete, but with how overleveled I am, I don't think getting through Kanto will be that hard

As it says in the OP, you may add in any additional rules you want as long as you note them in your signup sheet. You can hack, do a nuzlocke run, a monotype, a solo run (as KoboraX is doing) or anything else,just make sure you make it clear what you are doing when you sign up (I assume you will be more specific in your intentions in your next post so I will not count this one specifically as your sign up sheet).

Well, Johto is done. Just gotta do Kanto now, and the run is complete, but with how overleveled I am, I don't think getting through Kanto will be that hard

Well I'm impressed, although I wonder exactly how you will do against Red's extremely high-levelled Snorlax and Lapras... I would ask why you still have Mud Slap, but meh, whatever tickles your pickle I guess.

Red doesn't have Lapras in Gen 2. He has an Espeon in place of Lapras. As for keeping Mud-Slap, it's a good move to have when you're dealing with Blue's Rhydon and Red's deadly Snorlax with the 100% chance of lowering accuracy, which is part of how I beat Red's Snorlax (along with a crit with Swift) and a lot of using Hyper Potions. Overall, I swept through Kanto. Naturally, Blue gave me some problems, but I still made it through.

FINISHED with HeartGold!

Spoiler:

-I wanted to get started with Spearow, which was the only Pokemon I didn't hack in for simplicity.
-Grinded a little bit. Having a full team of six meant that I was going to be underleveled.

FALKNER (Badge #1)
The Chinchou and Rhyhorn I got really shined in this battle.

On to Azalea...
BUGSY (Badge #2)
Spearow was great in this fight; I didn't use anyone else.

WHITNEY (Badge #3)
I used the whole team here, but especially Heracross, who knew Reversal.

MORTY (Badge #4)
I had Lanturn now, but now Psychic Pokemon. However, my Scizor knew Pursuit which was good.

CHUCK (Badge #5)
I used Fearow here. Drill Peck worked very well.

JASMINE (Badge #6)
I used Rhyhorn and while it did not live through this fight, it beat the Magnemites and put a dent in Steelix. Heracross finished it off.

PRYCE (Badge #7)
I used Scizor who knew Bullet Punch. Pryce didn't stand a chance.

CLAIR (Badge #8)
Now that I had Dragonair I was going to use it against hers. Lanturn also knew Ice Beam so this fight went smoothly.

WILL
Heracross knocked everythng out with Bug attacks.

KOGA
I used Fearow and Rhydon here. They did well.

BRUNO
Fearow again, but also Scizor.

KAREN
I used Scizor and Heracross for their Bug and Fighting attacks.

LANCE
I used Dragonair and Lanturn to fend off his Dragonites.

Off to Kanto!

SURGE (Badge #9)
Rhydon only with Earthquake.

SABRINA (Badge #10)
Heracross solo'd with Megahorn.

ERIKA (Badge #11)
I used Fearow and Scizor here, and they went untouched.

JANINE (Badge #12)
I used Fearow and Rhydon for this [easy] battle.

MISTY (Badge #13)
I used Lanturn here, which was a good idea.

BROCK (Badge #14)
Rhydon solo'd with Earthquake.

BLAINE (Badge #15)
Rhydon again with Earthquake. Done within seconds.

BLUE (Badge #16)
As Blue's team is diverse in types, I had to use my whole arsenal. Being overleveled now thanks to some grinding, my Pokemon were in the mid 60's at this fight.

RED
For Pikachu, I used Lanturn (who has Volt Absorb, which makes Pikachu useless!).
For Charizard, I used Rhydon who killed it after finally hitting the third Stone Edge.
Venusaur: I used Lanturn to set up a Paralyze, then knocked it out with Heracross' Megahorn.

For Snorlax, I brought Lanturn in again to stall. The hail made a big difference and slowly helped me kill it.

Lapras was another stallfest, but I had Lanturn stay out and Thunderbolt it.
And finally Blastoise, who I Revived Lanturn to defeat it with a few Thunderbolts.


That's a wrap! I'll show everyone how my team looked at the end:

Looks like an interesting challenge, I'd like to try and undertake it.

Username: Relica
Game: Platinum
Extra Rules: Lowering the total BST cap to 450

Oh boy, I can't wait to use a bunch of babies and bugs!



Turns out there was a lot less bug than I thought there was going to be. Run over, that was a bit too easy sadly.
