    Yeah, I've done Rocket. Don't know when, but I have a list for them. If you can do Galactic, then I'll do both Aqua and Magma and we'll combine our lists!

      An idea for a sweet challenge!

      No Trainers challenge.

      1- You can't challenge most of the trainers.
      2- Only Gym trainers and unavoidable trainers are allowed.
      3- All Trick House trainers are allowed.
      4- If a trainers is hard to avoid, you must save before him, then try to avoid him until you do it.
      5- No Vs. Seeker or rematches.
      6- Hacking is allowed.
      7- The challenge ends in a certain way for any specific game.

      a) G/R/B/Y: After you catch/defeat Mewtwo.
      b) G/S/C: After you defeat Red.
      c) R/S: After you catch/defeat Rayquaza.
      d) E: After you defeat Steven in Meteor Falls.
      e) D/P: After you defeat Pokèmon League.
      f) Pt: After you defeat the Pokèmon League (twice), and complete the aftergame story.
      g) HG/SS: After you defeat Red (once) and Pokèmon League (twice).
      h) B/W: After you defeat the Pokèmon League (twice) and Cynthia in Sazanami Town.
      j) Colosseum: Purify all 48 Shadow Pokèmon, and defeat the main story.
      k) XD: Purify all 83 Shadow Pokèmon and defeat the main story.

      I didn't played Colosseum/XD, and I don't know the main story and stuff, so if anyone helps me I would be grateful.

      And, what do you say about this challenge?

        Meh, it's not too hard because you can still just grind on wild Pokemon. But, if you take that out, then it becomes some other challenge that we had somewhere at sometime that nobody liked (I don't think). Also, I would take out purify all 48 Pokemon and just stick to beating the story mode.

        The final boss in Colosseum is Evice. I'm not sure about XD, though.

        I'll add on to myrrhman's post by saying that nearly every trainer in plot advancing areas of Pokemon Colosseum and XD are impossible to avoid.
        This challenge doesn't really sound too interesting and seems like a lot of work, building up to nothing.
        Also, Greevil is the boss of Cipher in XD, Myrrh.

          I don't know what to say about the no-trainer challenge... it sounds OK, but the finishing requirements are a bit too high, as I'm used to the normal "beat champion" thing. I guess it's just me, but...

          Well, anyways, merry Christmas guys and I hope you got what you wanted, cause I didn't. It was one of the worst Christmases (lol) in my life, and I never got that new iPod Touch and I only got chocolate, books, and clothes. Yeah, like stuff that your family wants to buy and uses Christmas as an excuse... lol.

            The beginning of my Christmas was about the same. I got battery powered socks, 2 pairs of shoes when I have perfectly good ones right now, and a board game from my parents. A board game that I ALREADY HAD.

            As for the finishing requirements, they're not all that different. I mean, beat Mewtwo/Raquaza is easy enough, you're at a good enough level if you beat the elite four. As for Steven/Cynthia; I remember Steven wasn't that bad when I beat him in emerald. Can't imagine Cynthia would be ridiculous after you beat the elite four, which is at some ridiculous level like 70's or something.

              Myrrh, I could also do your new "siggy"... I just need to know where the heck are the monotypes. I only see Duo and Trio with many types lined there.

              just so crammed... redsaber's FAULTDEATH2TROLLSASD

              Um, yeah, not to mention the two pj's I got from my grandma. "They fit perfectly !". Of course they do... And I ate my After Eight chocolate in 20 minutes... just to be shouted at...

              I had a horrible Christmas...

                It is quite confusing, 560. Monotypes is actually the big orange section. For duo and trio challenges, I was only supposed to beat it once on Kanto, once on Johto, once on Hoenn, and once on Sinnoh.

                Don't like the idea of no trainers, especially for Colo/XD. You can't avoid many, plus in Colosseum, there's no wild Pokemon to grind levels, so you'd fail miserably. XD at least has wild Pokemon, but still.

                And hey. I got a crock pot for COOKING and GPS. OH BOY. But I also got some games and some nice clothes. No complaints. Cept my step dad was being a douche all day. He's just mad that his football team sucks and that if they win this championship, he'll have to wait another 50 years til they do it again. :D As for Alabama...give it a couple of years and we'll be sayin' 14, baby. /lol football

                  What team, Auburn? That sounds like UT! 1951 and then 1998... I think it will be a real CHALLENGE for Oregon to stop Cam.

                      Anybody tried the game I posted ? I'm really curious what you guys can do. I ran more backwards than forward, so yeah. <_>

                            I suppose christmas was good for me. I got another copy of LittleBig Planet, which I had lost for about a year... I got a copy of FireRed, but something's wrong with it... my Save Files keep deleting themselves. It's happened twice now.

                            That post would be GOLDEN, if you reversed it, hun. As great a player as newton is, and as much as I hate Oregon, not to mention the fact that they play in the skin and bones pac-10, the Oregon Ducks offense is a looser cannon then syd, packed with 80 tons of dynamite, while on Performance Enhancing Drugs.

                              I'll get around to it eventually. Be patient.

                              I actually like Oregon, despite them handing UT's butts to them on a silver platter. They were my third favorite team behind UT and Hawaii (because back then they were called the rainbow warriors, and how funny is that?) throughout my childhood, because I loved their colors. And that they were ducks. Now I love that they have like hundreds of combinations of uniforms they can wear. So ridic.

                              And now back on topic. Can someone give WeigtyWillBill (I think that's who it is, apologies if I'm wrong) a kick in the butt and tell him to update his revived triospecies challenge? I run/co-run 3 pretty big ones, and I know how much of a pain it is to have to update a bunch of stuff, and he's getting close to a month since last update.

                                I like the idea of a run using the same type of animal,
                                i.e
                                a mouse
                                so the pokemon you could use would be:
                                - Marill
                                - Raichu
                                - Raticate
                                - Sandlash
                                ect

                                  Here's an idea for a challenge: The TM challenge

                                  you post how many pokemon you want and people give you random numbers (courtesy of a random generator with a range, like this http://www.randomizer.org/form.htm) that correspond to the game's TM list. You then have to choose pokemon that can learn a corresponding TM and they have to use that TM for that pokemon.

                                  Example:

                                  Game: Heart Gold
                                  Number of pokemon wanted: 4

                                  Next poster gives you 23, 50, 3, 13

                                  An example team would then be:
                                  23- Azumarill (Iron Tail)
                                  50- Arcanine (Overheat)
                                  03- Ambipom (Water Pulse)
                                  13- Nidoqueen (Ice Beam)

                                  As for really hard to get ones like Battle Frontier TMs, maybe they can just be hacked but only after beating the final gym or something?

                                  -----

                                  Another idea is maybe a mode that includes HMs when you get a 'free-for-all' TM like Hidden Power or Return (maybe renamed to TM/HM Challenge?). Say the random generator outputs 13, 21, 15, 10. Since 21 is Frustration and 10 is Hidden Power, the member has to do generate 2 more numbers for HMs, so for example they get 1 and 4- they have to get a pokemon who learns Cut and one that learns Strength instead. Could be a bit more effort/complicated for lazy members though?

                                    We've tried animals before. It died last time, but you can feel free to try again.

                                    As for the TM/HM challenge, seems sort of pointlessly easy. If you wanted, the only restrictions would be you could only use three moves (if you don't want to use your TM/HM, you could just teach it to your Pokemon and not ever use it), and that your team is limited to Pokemon that can learn a certain TM. For a lot of them, like Ice Beam, Thunder, etc., there are a ton of Pokemon that can learn said TMs. So your team wouldn't be that limited. I vote no.

                                    I just want them to shut Auburn up. That is my dream. I got a houndstooth fedora today as a secret Santa gift between me and my sister, btw. I ended up opening the present with popcorn and a McDonalds card and she got the hat originally. Then my mom left the room and she was like "here you like hats more than me" lol

                                    TM/HM challenge sounds pretty cool I guess, but...eh idk. Nothing I'd bother with. Doesn't have...oomph. I guess that's the sound effect word I'm looking for. Cause it's not that challenging if you get good TMs like 26, 35, and 24. Now, if you got 92, 12, and 2 or something...lol. Just examples though.

                                    Animal challenge has been done to death, but feel free to send in another for approval I guess. They always die. :(

                                    And now back on topic. Can someone give WeigtyWillBill (I think that's who it is, apologies if I'm wrong) a kick in the butt and tell him to update his revived triospecies challenge? I run/co-run 3 pretty big ones, and I know how much of a pain it is to have to update a bunch of stuff, and he's getting close to a month since last update.
                                    This is why I just make a list of Champions for the challenges I host and tell people to VM me when they finish. It's too much for me to keep checking a thread for sign ups. I already have enough things to do and I don't feel like keeping up with all the people participating and who drops out and what not. v_v I just make sure people are signing up correctly.
