If you have a good idea for a challenge thread but you can't take part on it, here is the place to post your suggestions and discuss them with other people, so somebody else can use them to start their own challenges.

So, post away!

Idk someone should try just going through the main game up to Red on HG/SS with just shinies (including shiny starter.) That'd take a LOT of hours, but...kind of interesting if someone did pull off that challenge. Not that I have the patience to participate.. XD;

why is this forum dead

      How about one where, if one of your Pokemon faints, you have to release it? That would be interesting...

        -Speed Runs - Fastest Time
        -Combined Challenges - Combining 2 or more challenges together
        -Gym Leader Challenge - Playing the game using only pokemon a specific gym leader uses.
        -Moveset Challenge - You pick the team you play with but other members choose the moveset
        -Habitat Challenge - I liked WriteThemWrong's idea with pokemon in the same habitat (Grassland Pokémon, Forest Pokémon, Water's-edge Pokémon, Sea Pokémon, Cave Pokémon, Mountain Pokémon, Rough-terrain Pokémon, Urban Pokémon)

        -Egg Group Challenge (Though I probably want to do this one).
        Your team may only consist of Pokemon from the same Egg group

            They've actually tried in the past most of the challenges you suggested. I was a member in both the egg group and habitat challenges, but they didn't last long. I tried to do sorta your idea with the combined challenge, but it was like four challenges long, and it didn't catch on either. But the moveset challenge would be pretty interesting.

              I could re attempt to do with the Habitat or Egg groups unless I could think of doing another Challenge.

              I would do this Challenge but I don't know if it would work (Something tells me it won't work).
              The Pokemon Special/Adventures Challenge. Where you have to choose the same team as a particular character from Pokemon Special/Adventures.
              Or the same thing but based of the characters from the Anime.

                Lol, I do that all the time. Currently on a Red run of LeafGreen. I refuse to do Yellow coz she also has Pikachu xD.

                How about a "phobia challenge"?? Where you only do pokemon that would scare you in real life.

                I.e. I would use bugs,dark types and rodents, as they scare me. Oh, and aquatic creatures. And birds. Coz I only really like mammals (marsupials aren't bad)


                EDIT: I also tried starting a challenge where you only use one move, and it has to go on all your pokemon. No HM Slaves, must be able to gain that move (or a pokemon that learns it) before 2nd badge, trade for dragons and steels. You can use your other moveslots, but you must learn and keep the chosen move.

                Sadly, it failed.

                  I'd love to do a run with a Mono-attack challenge! Surf/Waterfall only! Hehe.... That would be awesome. :D

                        Once you have the TM, the move tutor and breeding a fair amount of them can learn metronome, especially in Gen III.

                        But most challenges tend to involve no trading, and no migration to complete them either.

                          maybe the Gym Leader Challence an be expanded to all the generations, not just RBYGSC.

                            Or can make it an ultimate gym leader run. Where you have to go through every game as one gym leader.

                              What about a "choose a theme" challenge, where you can... well, choose a theme from the options given to you. Yes, all challenges have a theme, but this would include smaller themes which are too small for standalone challenges.
                              Examples:
                              -HGSS Sinnoh evolution run (The 5 new dex additions)
                              -Signature move pokemon run
                              ...and that's all I have.

                              And then the "Weak pokemon challenge", where you can only use pokemon which have a Base Stat Total of under 400.

                                I've got an idea for one - the Gym Type Challenge. You have to beat each gym using only Pokemon of that gym's type - so you must beat Misty using only Water-types, Erika using only Grass types, Whitney using only Normal-types, etc. Would you guys play this challenge or is it a bit too much?

                                  I'm not exactly sure what you mean. There is a challenge called "Random Pokemon Challenge" hosted by WriteThemWrong, in which the creator picks the Pokemon for everyone using a Random Pokemon Generator.

                                  You also might be thinking of a scramble challenge, where you post saying how many Pokemon you want to have, and everyone else gives you one Pokemon, and if you want them to, moves that it has to learn or moves that it can't learn. There's one for the third generation hosted by Ru-Kun

                                  THIS IS A GOOD IDEA. MYRRHMAN APPROVES.

                                  It would be hard, because you can't keep one Pokemon for very long. I guess you would have to make an exception to brock or something, because iirc there aren't any rocks you get before him. But yeah, I would totally do this. Would you do it for the elite four too? Because you wouldn't be able to switch teams out in between battles, and you would have to have like one of each type. That could prove challenging. I'd do it.

                                    You could re-use Pokemon though - eg. Venasaur, the Grass/Poison type, would be allowed to be used at both Erika's gym and Koga's.

                                    Yeah, exceptions would be made if you cannot get any Pokemon of that certain type. I'm pretty sure Brock and Roxanne are the only gyms you cannot do though.

                                    I can think of three ways we could do it.

                                    a) The challenge ends when the 8th gym leader is defeated.
                                    b) You must use only the type of ONE of the E4 members (eg. in Sinnoh you must monotype with either Bug, Fire, Ground or Psychic).
                                    c) You can use any of the Pokemon you have used for any of the gym battles.

                                    Which do you think is best?

                                    I would probably start the habitat challenge or Speed run. However I'm afraid some jackass will Photoshop their evidence to show just how "fast" they are...

                                    Habitat sounds cool though.
