    Hey! I haven't seen you around the forum in quite a while (I have also taken a long break)

    Do you think you will be returning at some point?

    I was thinking maybe we could start a more interactive challenge topic where a few people contribute at the same time so that we are participating in the challenge together. Let me know what you think?

    So I posted my Anime challenge for everyone to try. It's basically a standard Nuzlocke but without the first encounter. Instead your limited by the cast of characters and the corresponding Pokemon you chose for them prior to starting the challenge. Once you finish catching all listed cast members, you may not catch any more Pokemon.

    My inaugural challenge will utilize the show Star vs. the Forces of Evil

    Star Butterfly: Butterfree
    Marco Diaz: Machoke
    Jackie: Venusaur
    Pony Head: Rapidash
    Tom: Charizard
    Queen Butterfly: Lapras
    King Butterfly: Primeape
    Ferguson: Snorlax
    Alfonzo: Parasect

    Kind of don't need to explain any of them aside from Ferguson and Alfonzo. Ferguson is a heavy set character so I picked a fat Pokemon. Alfonzo kind of stays inconspicuously in the background because he's a social outcast(aka nerd) and hence I chose Parasect.

    Hope to start this challenge tomorrow provided I get approval, although I don't think I'll have the Flashy story that you're able to articulate so well. I'll simply have updates, although you're welcome to give my challenge a try whenever you feel ready.

    Powerpuff girls is an animated series here in the "States" that was recently revived last year. Here's a Wiki link: Powerpuff Girls Ironically enough, the series made its way to Japan as an Anime but with my Anime challenge, ANY animated show would work. Oh and TMNT= Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(hence 4 Turtles with a mutated Rat sensei and a human antagonist with a unique set of Samurai Armor that reminds me of the Pokemon Bisharp).

    Not sure how One Piece would work out though. Tempted to suggest my idea in the Idea topic of the Challenge board with my Code Lyoko example.

    Eh Ditto catch isn't so bad. It's getting a Pokemon with the correct Special value for the Pokemon you need that proves to be the sticking point. Also yeah, the 802 challenge kind of inspired it but I don't think it will work considering I have one copy of Yellow and no other means of trading/importing Pokemon short of Ditto Glitch and training them up the hard way(unless I use the item duplication glitch(a special case of Ditto glitch) to get Rare Candies).

    I might propose the "Anime" challenge or taking a favorite animated show that you like and creating a team based on the characters of the show. An example would be my last run where I based my team off of the French Anime Code Lyoko. You basically analyze the characters and try to match them to a Pokemon to the best of your ability. Like if I was to do TMNT, I'd do a Squirtle, Torkoal(if I could) or anything remotely close to a Turtle Pokemon or Ninja(like Greninja). Then Raticate for Splinter and then Bisharp for the main antagonist Shredder.

    I might do my next run on the Powerpuff Girls. There are three of them(four if you count the one they're debuting today as of right now or 5:30pm EST(still got 3 hours before it's revealed where I am)) and the line of Pokemon that best fits them is the Eevee line. This latest PPG appears to have telekinetic powers, hence a perfect representation of Espeon. However, if I base it on just the original three, I'll go with Blossom as Jolteon, Buttercup as Flareon and Bubbles as Vaporeon with Professor as Kangaskhan. Then I'd have to figure out who else to add to the team.

    Next challenge I might do is to beat the game using all 151 Pokemon in order. That is using each Pokemon line in battle against the E4 and Champion and therefore my first team will be Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Butterfree, Beedrill(via Ditto Catch) and Pidgeot. Next attempt will include Raticate, Fearow, Arbok(Ditto Catch), Raichu(Ditto Catch), Sandslash and Nidoqueen. Then so on and so forth through the list using their fully evolved forms ^^

    *Edit* I might opt to substitute Pikachu for Raichu and Graveler, Haunter, Machoke and Kadabra for the 4 Pokemon I have to trade in order to evolve rather than catching their fully evolved forms via Ditto Glitch and having to train them with just their base moves(they don't learn anything AFAIK). I could test to see if its true or not considering I have all 151 in my current game.

    I will add that it will be difficult to do some of this challenge since most of the Pokemon later on in the list don't appear until much later in the game so I might put a qualifier that I could challenge the E4 multiple times in one run-through(heck I might just do it now in my current game considering I have everyone).

    Whenever I face Sabrina, I find Pokemon with strong physical attacks(Body Slam, Slash, Hyper Beam... eh you can catch a Dratini in Safari Zone and grind the hell out of it to level 50 for the move and evolve it to Dragonair. Thing is will you be lucky enough to fish one) do extremely well since the Abra line lacks defense and hitpoints to withstand such attacks. Psychic types, in effect, are glass cannons(all attack, no defense). That's why I think your bird's and Claws will do best against her.

    I'll think about which type to go with. Might go with Ground, might not.

    In Yellow, Jynx is unavailable(Ditto Glitch catch) and I can't trade to evolve Kadabra into Alakazam(otherwise I would). I might look into a Ground Type run since Sandshrew can learn Cut and Nido's(Nidoking/Nidoqueen) can learn Surf(the two HM's ill need). I can catch a Nido early for Brock and would likely have to solo Misty as a Nidorino/Nidorina. Full team would probably be Sandshrew, Diglett, Cubone, Nidoqueen, Nidoking and Onix.

    Also I read your latest chapter. Erika was a cakewalk, as should Koga with Gwen and Stooges. Sabrina will be a toughie but your best bet will probably be Stooges. Got some grinding ahead of you though as Koga's ace is level 50 and Gary has a level 40 Jolteon waiting for you in Saffron.

    With regards to Beedrill, I *could* get it in Yellow but it would require using the Ditto Glitch to get it(can get any Pokemon in the game that way but can't acquire any Pokemon via the Glitch until I reach Cinnabar Island where Ditto first appears in Yellow). Granted I do believe hacking or using glitches is against the rules(but the Ditto Glitch is exclusive to Generation 1 and only Generation 1 games(not FireRed or LeafGreen)).

    Poison is a possibility but Sabrina and anyone with Psychic Pokemon would be your kryptonite. Psychic obviously wouldn't be ideal because Psychic is alas OP in Generation 1 due to a lack of counters(seriously Kadabra, Hypno and Mr.Mime is all I would need.

    I did think about doing a Normal Type run but I'd have to find a way to beat Rock and Ghost Types. Suppose Flying Types can counter Ghost's(as well as beat the Fighting Type's I'd be weak against) but I'll have to teach Dig to someone or use Super Fang and just outright brute strength Rock Opponents.

    As for your Nuzlocke, I'll look forward to reading it.

    Think I'm going to do a Yellow Monotype challenge in my next Yellow run-through. Just having trouble deciding on what type to go with. Fire is in the early lead but I'm also considering Normal and Water. Any suggestions for what you'd go with? I did Bug awhile back and it was tough to say the least but I managed to win thanks to Sleep, Psychic and Slash.

    Btw, when are you posting an update to your Nuzzlocke?

    Sorry late replies. College has gotten me so busy! It doesn't help that public transportation here has me waiting many hours for my bus to arrive because the bus company isn't hiring drivers to pick us up when they're supposed to come. (I could just get on data, but I type so much faster on computer and don't like writing anything too long on phone).

    I have a polish friend who speaks 5 languages including Japanese. She learned many if not most kanji and I have no idea how she managed to do it. Immersion definitely helps people learn languages faster, and where are you in Canada? Quebec? I want to visit there! :) I have a few other french Canadian friends actually and the closest one has helped me improve my own French.

    That's a very nice list! I totally agree with all of those, especially more makeup options and accessories since those are severely lacking. It really makes me think about how limited we still are. I also don't like the style of the longest hairstyle very much myself and am waiting for a good classic length hairstyle. I would also like some highlights and lowlights!

    That makes me want to try BOTW more. I like games that take forever to complete, even though sometimes I never end up completing them because of it. xD

    If you want to refer to female friends only then "mie" is correct but you have to use "amiche" instead of "amici". :) Unfortunately Italian is not a very intuitive language like English. :(

About Me

  • About Alakazam17
    Well, let's see. I was born an Abra, and all I could do was Teleport from place to place until I was sixteen. Then, finally, I evolved into a Kadabra, learning Confusion. This helped me out greatly in the remainder of my high school years, during which I also evolved once again, into the Alakazam you all know today. ^_^

I may be getting that American citizenship after all. I seriously didn't see this coming, and let's be honest here: who could have?

After Canada's Conservative government went and passed Bill 41, banning the public playing of Pokemon, I am at a loss. I have always been an open Pokemaniac, so now that I won't be able to bring my Yanmega to school with me, I don't know what I am going to do. I mean, this is a freakin' free country, how could they possibly do this? I mean, I'm all for...

Today has been pretty good for me, believe it or not.

EB Games was open from 11AM - 5PM, and my shift at work was 8AM - 4PM. Thus, when my shift was over I was able to make my way down there to get SoulSilver. =D

Furthermore, while at work, I found out that our store director, a hypocritical harassing man who always seems to find an excuse to make our day miserable, starts his vacation today. And he won't be around for a whole week! XD

And what could...

After working a lot on this Physics lab, I have decided to do something for only the second time in my university career: hand in an assignment late. XD

I lose 20% as a result, but I believe I have a better chance of getting 80%(ie. perfect before deduction) in a week than I do getting an 80% now(ie. losing 20% with stuff done wrong/not at all). So umm....yeah.

If I wasn't so logical I'd have handed this thing in now the way it is, but instead I'll be proceeding to...
