Certainly you didn't think I'd forget we need an event, right?


Good day, lads! And Fish to the Challenge forum's first event!

Let's cut to the rules...

→Green Pokemon are the only ones allowed!
Yes. You have to build teams around Green colored Pokemon only. It's like a mono-color challenge...but without the freedom of choice! Here is a list of green Pokemon. Please stick to this list, even if a Pokemon has green on it, like Gardevoir or Virizion, we're going with what the Pokedex says. Sucks I know, but Spheal with it!

→Only certain Blankets are allowed!
Being a Popcorn challenge and all, only certain Blankets will be permitted for this challenge. You may only play this challenge on a copy of Green, Gold, Emerald, LeafGreen, HeartGold, or White. I only recommend Green or LeafGreen if you're feeling daring!

→The "Luck of the Irish" clause!
If, on the off chance, you find a shiny Pokemon that is colored green (Zubat, for example, is normally blue, but the shiny is green) then you are allowed to use it! If you're unsure as to which shinies would count as green, please don't hesitate to contact me, preferably by VM. Also, remember that I'm not the Pokedex. I'm much more lenient with what I'm going to consider as "green" so don't be afraid to ask! :)

→Emulators and trading are allowed!
Emulate the Blanket if you need to! And trade all you want!

→Duplicates are allowed!
If you're playing a Blanket with a limited number of green Pokemon, feel free to catch more of the same Pokemon. Strongly recommended for anyone trying this on Green or LeafGreen Version.

→You must have at least three team members!
We can't have everyone doing a solo challenge with their green starter. Team work, bb!

→Did I mention the deadline?
Yes, there is a deadline, since obviously the event has to end at some point. Normally the event would end on St. Patrick's Day, however with the release of Pokemon Stunfisk and White this month, I figure people will be very busy. So instead, the event will end on April 1st (12 AM central time). If you do happen to finish before or on March 17th, then kudos to you!

→When does the challenge end?
No matter what version you are using, the challenge will end after you defeat the Pokemon League.

→Regarding hacking and legendaries...
Hacking for a green Pokemon (like Scyther in Green or Politoed in Gold for people that can't trade) is fine, but hacking for a shiny Pokemon that is green is not. Ruins the "luck of the Irish" Popcorn. Legendaries...never said anything against them. -whistle whistle-

→Have fun!
This event is meant for fun, of course. That's what challenges are!

If anyone has any questions, please contact me via VM or PM!

Going with Gold. Team will be Meganium, Scyther, and Politoed.

By the way, Scyther isn't available in LeafGreen, lol.

    Syd is my hero.

    Sign me up for Gold. Team is looking like: Meganium, Xatu, Scyther, and Politoed (only if I can get a Poliwhirl and King's Rock and then just hack in a Politoed instead. If not, then its just the first three)

      Sorry, but you have to use at least three Pokemon. :( Throw a Skiploom in there? Or an extra Xatu or something.

              Hmm. I will be more than happy to do this challenge in Green version once I learn how to trade a Scyther in... Is hacking okay to get a Pokemon? I promise I'll be good and hack only to get Scyther and nothing else

              EDIT: I now have my trio! Scyther, Venusaur, and Victreebel/Weepinbel!

                Yes, you can hack for something as long as it's green. :) And sorry about that TheFuturePokemon. Just trying to go with how the Pokedex lists it. I'll add you to the list now though.

                  Alrighty then, the game is all set! I've changed it so that the Farfetch'd/Spearow trade in Vermillion is now a Scyther/Spearow trade Thanks Swampert!
                  So that makes my team of three... Venusaur, Victreebel, and Scyther. Expect the first update tommorow, with some pretty pictures and good ol' Engrish transration

                  I'll go with Leaf Green. (How daring am I?)
                  I'll use Venusaur, Victreebel and Weepinbell.

                  Would there be any way for me to turn this event into an Ultimate Challenge? :D I'd gladly take the Ultimate version of this.

                  It'd only be semi-ultimate, because of the lack of a fourth gen. availability for this, but I'd still do it.

                  My teams would end up being:
                  Leaf Green - Venusaur, Victreebel, Scyther
                  Gold - Meganium, Xatu, Tyranitar
                  Emerald - Sceptile, Ludicolo, Flygon, Cradily
                  White - Serperior, Yanakkie, Reuniclus, Doredia

                  Well, that's gutsy! Even with BW's release this month? Go for it then. :) I'll make another spoiler for ultimates, if anyone else wants to give it a shot.

                  I'll get right to work on my challenges then. I'll be finishing a part of a different ultimate tomorrow, so that'll be a great time to start on LG. :D

                      I'll toss a Larvitar in there.

                      Watch out Vappy isn't putting his challenge in spoilers!
                      Vaporeon7's St. Patrick's Day Challenge-Leaf Green!
                      Chapter 1: A little bit of Chaos!

                      I started of my challenge by selecting the New Game button. After telling the professor that I'm a boy and calling myself Patrick (after the challenge) I was ready to begin my Pokemon journey.

                      I began by walking out my room and the house and then heading north. I was making good time until I was stopped by Oak. He dragged me to his dungeon lab and and saw my future rival. Oak offered me a Pokemon so I chose the green one and called it Chaos. My rival chose the red one. We battled. He lost. I left for Viridian City. On the way a nice man gave me a Potion. I then reached Viridian City. I headed for the PokeMart to buy Pokeballs but then I was forced to go give Oak his parcel. I went quickly back to Pallet Town and gave Oak his parcel. It was 2 Pokedexes. He gave me and my rival one.

                      I then went back to Viridian and then I went west. My rival then battled me again. I won of course and then headed for Viridian Forest. After being told how to catch Pokemon by an old man I managed to find my way through the forest. While I was in there Chaos evolved into Ivysaur.

                      I then made it to Pewter City and went to the gym. I defeat the gym trainer easily and then I challenged Brock.

                      With one Vine Whip I was able to defeat Brock's Geodude and also his Onix. For beating him he gave me a Boulder Badge.

                      This concludes this chapter of my St. Patrick's Day Challenge.
                      The 'Green' Team:

                      Chaos (Ivysaur) Lv17.
