Ultimate Challengers

These people are brave enough ( or have lots of spare time ) to complete every single game with the same pokemon, obviously they cannot complete a run through with Zoroark and Tepig but they still choose to do it.

The Winners Circle!

None So Far :(

You didn't list your own sign up, but you confirmed to me that you would be participating. Make sure you do. I'm actually pretty strict about that rule, and this wouldn't have been approved had I not known you were going to participate beforehand.

Well, since the old thread closed and I can't post my screenshot, I guess I'll post it here ^-^

I'll post my old sign up too I guess.

tl;dr ahead!

(I know this is out of context, but I never used HM slaves in battle in my first run, including E4, I don't think its fair because you have 2 Pokemon and thus can revive on another turn. I know one person isn't gonna change a rule but it irks me. Plus, I think that there should be a rule where you explicitly state what Pokemon you're using. Some people will say pikachu and charmander and then evolve them, so I think that you should put that people signing up should put the final form of the Pokemon they are using, unless they actually ARE using Pikachu and Charmander. I know I'm being really nit-picky, but eh....just my way of thinking :P And Salamence. Obviously I read the rules if I critiqued them ;) )

As for a new challenge, I'll be doing Kabutops and Ninetales on Ruby also. I'll be hacking them in on Route 101.

I am currently in a paused state for my Duo challenge, having finished Kanto. I'm on Johto now. Would it be all right to just find all my updates from the old thread and repost them here in a spoiler? Because its not really fair to those of us who have done part of the challenge, we shouldn't have to do it again if we can prove that we did in fact do it.

If so, I'm using Porygon Z and Snorlax in an Ultimate Challenge... Which means that for the GSC and RSE leg, I have to use Porygon2 instead, since Z is unobtainable.

@ Myrhhman - Yes thats fine, I dont mind that. Btw check the rules

@thenickel09 - You can hack for one pokemon only. Not two as its not fair. Sorry for not putting it in the rules :S Um, I know what you mean but It took me ages to decide on what I wanted to choose.

March 29th, 2011, 12:30 PM
@ Myrhhman - Yes thats fine, I dont mind that.

@thenickel09 - Uh. No, you can hack for one pokemon only. Not two as its not fair.


What do you mean by not fair? It's not like I'm hacking them in at level 100 or anything, I caught them at level 2 on route 101....I just wanted to use those 2 pokemon on Ruby as I'm trying to do all of my Duospecies runs there. If its a serious problem I just won't play it at all...but whatever. Its cool. I understand. I'll respect those rules.

The rule about hacking should only be considered for pokemon that can be found in the region. for ultimate challengers, those who end up doing B/W would have to wait until the E4 was defeated to catch their second pokemon (after hacking the first in), as no Kanto (or Johto or Hoenn or Sinnoh) pokemon can be found before then. I think that Ultimate challengers should have the ability to hack in the beginning as long as both their members can't be found in the wild of any game within a reasonable time frame (Gen III and on I would say). The idea is to use two pokemon, not one. Single runs should be excluded from this rule tho.

Also, I did a FR run with Absol and Gyarados in the old thread, and I never did get on the champions list, but I assume I wouldn't get on here.
Would I have to start another one to get on this list?

Everybody stop complaining about the rules, they are my rules and I won't change them so if you don't like it then don't bother doing the challenge, SIMPLE.

pokepokemo - NOT ACCEPTED

Read, The, RULES!

March 31st, 2011, 8:37 AM
Another quick question. The rules say challenge ends after beating the e4 twice, red, cynthia. For RB, beating them the second time is kind of pointless, since nothing changes besides your levels getting higher. Do you just mean for games where the e4 gets tougher the second time, beat them again?

Also, I've beaten this challenge a couple of times, might as well get credit for it... Here's the log and screenshots and salamence.
Named myself Topaz
Hey look, a Chinchou! I want it!
Named it Mustard

Edit: I don't think I've ever in my life been happier to learn Flail. Lv. 12 Chinchou is pathetic against any type that resists it. Seriously? Its only damaging move only has 15 power after STAB is applied? Ow.

Beat Roxanne, screenshot tomorrow.
Gave Steven the letter.
Skipped ahead to Slateport.
Saved in the Pokecenter.
Did some training, got Electrike, backtracked for Brawly, etc.

Vs. Brawly and Post Brawly Team

Started an intense training session before Wattson. While training...

Then, in the gym...
Later in the gym...
Got Rock Smash and Strength
Taught Rock Smash to Treeko
Vanilla Evolved!
Saw the Great Meteorite Theft, then defeated them atop Mt. Chimney. Forgot to Screenshot it, so its with nobody there. That's proof enough.
Beat Flannery
Beat Norman
Taught Mustard Surf
Taught Mustard Ice Beam
Taught Vanilla Thunderbolt
Taught Mustard Hidden Power, which happens to be Fighting Type.

Got Devon Scope
Beat Winona
Obtained whichever Orb you obtain in Sapphire
Bagged a Pelliper for Fly
There they go in the submarine again, they just did that like 4 days ago...
I bet I knew where they take the sub after going to their base...
Beat Liza and Tate
Bagged a Tentacool for Dive and eventually Waterfall
Bye bye Kyogre
Die die Kyogre
Beat Wallace
Beat Wally
Beat E4
Beat Steven (Super funny thing happened mid battle. Vanilla defeated Metagross, but used its last Thunderbolt in the fight. I was like, dangit, there goes my strongest attack. Level up to 45. Vanilla is trying to learn thunder!)
Yawn. What an easy fight.
Yet another easy fight, as Vanilla had just learned how to bite things.
This didn't work last time you tried it, but sure, go ahead.
I am Caboose! The Legendary Destroyer!
More yawning. More OHKOs
This is my team before entering the Steven battle.
The team:
Final Team:
Vanilla, the Rash Lv. 45 Manectric
Thunder, Thunder Wave, Quick Attack, Bite

Mustard, the Timid Lv. 51 Lanturn @ Mystic Water
Spark, Hidden Power (Fighting), Surf, Ice Beam

Treeko (Rock Smash, Strength, Cut)
Pelliper (Fly)
Tentacool (Dive, Waterfall)
Castform (Flash)

Edit number 2:

For the few of you challengers that will be participating in an Ultimate Duo-Species Challenge, I have compiled a few lists of Pokemon that are available in multiple regions. Since you are now only able to hack in one Pokemon, if you are doing an ultimate challenge, at least one of these Pokemon must be on your team. As jdthebud said, you can only do this challenge through Sinnoh, as NO Pokemon is available in Unova and any other generation. I guess four gens is enough for an Ulti.

Families of Pokemon available in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh (again, one of these must be on your team):
Golem, Tentacruel, Machamp, Magneton, Raichu, Golduck, Rhydon, Golbat,

Families of Pokemon available in Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh:
Azumarril, Crobat, Girafarig, Heracross

Families of Pokemon available in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn:
Electrode, Vileplume, Dodrio, Muk, Weezing, Sandslash, Wigglytuff, Starmie, Ninetails, Pinsir, Seadra

Families of Pokemon available in Johto and Hoenn:
Magcargo, Bellossom, Skarmory, Donphan, Lanturn, Kingdra

These lists were created by looking at a list of Pokemon in RSE and copying the ones from gen 1 into one category, and the ones in gen 2 in another. I then found a list of Pokemon in DPPt and using the first list made a separate list for those taken out of the fourth gen. There might be one or two mistakes, but for the most part, this list is accurate.

March 31st, 2011, 9:18 AM
I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to intervene here. For the ultimate, people going on to Black/White can't obtain Pokemon not in the Unova Dex til after the Elite Four, so they can't use the teams they've been using all this time, therefore making it unfair to them. You're going to have to edit the rules to comply with hacking Pokemon in. This is partially my fault though, I should have made sure you were keeping in with the rules from the previous thread.

If you don't comply with this, I will have to put a lock on this one I'm afraid. Sorry, but it's unfair to those that put in the effort for the ultimate beforehand.

Fine Lock it, i dont see why not since it is my rules and my thread

March 31st, 2011, 10:12 AM
Because the fact that you restarted a challenge, but didn't give those that were already started on their ultimate challenges a fair chance because you barred them from hacking, which is something necessary for BW users. But alright then.

If anyone wants to make a new one, at least have rules that compensate for those that are doing an ultimate.
