    If it was such a sneaky task you performed, then you wouldn't be telling anyone that you did it. Not to mention even publically posting it for someone. A real sneaky bugger would've been a ninja about it and thrown an explosive tag on a kunai with the message, which would then explode after them memorising it. :P

      The Attack,Defence and Avoider challenge:

      The defender will have to have moves such as tail whip,growl or any status move

      They can't not do damage to the pokemon apart from poison or burnt

      The attacker must be pokemon that knows 4 good moves to knock any type of pokemon out

      The Avoider must be a bird pokemon that has the Fly HM and Double Team

      One notice is that the defender has to battle all of the time, If it faints you must knock all your other pokemon out

      Optional for harder challenge:

      You have to use one type
      Only allowed to use 3 poke balls in the game
      No boxed pokemon
      You cannot spend any money what-so-ever
      You have to sell all your items you pick up throughout the game apart from Key Items and Berries, The only balls you can use are the ones at the start
      You must only use each pokemon center when you first get to the town and after the gym
      If choosing to spend money here are some ways to limited what you buy:
      No status items must be bought
      Only allowed to buy stuff from vending machines <apart from black and white as it become easier in those games to have access to a machine>
      Only able to buy Ultra Balls
      Only able to buy one of the custom balls
      Only able to buy Full Restores and revives

      Notice: The defender has to battle before the attacker an avoider and you can't switch until you use a move such a tail whip or move that status pokemon

        Actually you have talked about a tournament thing, but i think vaporeon7 just didn't know about his Future sight skills. Have you been staring into the sun lately, Vaporeon?

        I have been talking to the Xatu from Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.

        You told us about it when we were discussing event challenges a few months ago. You said that you didn't want to have an Easter event because you didn't know when Easter was and then Alternative suggested making a challenge where we have to use each other's favourite Pokemon. You then went on to say how you were planning that for an event later on in the year (for your birthday iicr).

        WELL YOU SEE...if I were planning that around MY birthday...you'd all be stuck with MY favorites! :) But Get Together is usually in August, so we'll have to find another way to celebrate my birthday...like...by...making a cake. Or putting graffiti on a wall.

            ...Nah...not really. Someone made a thread about naming their Eeveelutions after the Sages. And I know a few people that have, so...:x

            Has there ever been some sort of challenge where people can only use Pokemon which are separated by version differences? So you would only be allowed to use Pokemon like Volbeat and Illumise, and Whimsicott and those Pokemon.

              While there hasn't been one exclusively for Pokemon that are version exclusive, there has been one called 'The Special Pairs Challenge' which is what you're talking about, with the addition of like Jynx/Magmar/Electabuzz, Weedle/Caterpie, and stuff like that. Some of them can be caught in the same game, they just go together.

              I got sort of bored, so I started making my own catalog for all the challenges we've made ever. I've got the year of challenges in one excel document, a short description of each, and which version we're on. Almost all of the 82 challenges we have are either on version 1 or 2, but then we have Anime, Random, and Mononame at 3, Duo and Monocolor on version 4, Trio on version 6, and Nuzlocke, Unevolved/basic, and Gym Leader on their 7th edition!!! Goodness that's a lot or reviving a thread. The current Gym Leader Challenge hasn't even been posted in since March 30th.

              Anyways, I'm going to organize them into categories now (like themes in a category, groups ((colors, body type, IQ group, etc.)), user assisted ((ones where another user picks part of your team like the scramble, favorite, moveset, etc.)), character based ((Gym Leader, Anime, Evil Team, etc.))) and then possibly post it in a spoiler here. Do you guys think we should make a thread for an index or something? I'm pretty sure it was talked about once or twice, but I forgot what we decided. It could be helpful for people who participated in like a leg of an Ultimate Challenge in one thread, and then sorta forgot about it, only to want to do the challenge the next time that the thread popped up. They could just go to the index, click a link to one of the original threads, and voila! They can now easily copy-paste their progress!

                  Mine was mostly NFE too, mainly middle. tbh, I'm surprised I didn't end up with many NFE Pokemon in this run. Only NFE I have is Wartortle, which hey, that's not too bad. It hatched with Blizzard, which I wasn't expecting. XD;

                  I should really get around to making a list for that challenge, but only use it for future reference. I'd only really use it for if I want to start my Black game again, and actually do the challenge. My only problem would be using lots of non-Unova Pokemon, which is probably the biggest set back to be doing it. I'd actually consider doing it though. :)

                  Could just do the Unova-only version of it. I made that one so that people that can't trade and transfer and such (or just preferred this entirely) had a way to do the challenge. If I did THAT version though, I would probably have a full NFE team.

                  I have the ability to trade and everything, I just don't want to stick with just Unova Pokemon. I could probably alter it so that a few Unova Pokemon are in my favourites so I have a higher chance to get more Unova Pokemon.

                    But then that's lying about your challenge. If they're not actually your favorites, then you shouldn't have them on the list, right?

                      I like the gym leader one that Charmageddon had...and the shinies only XD. The shiny one would take a million years though, unless you were really lucky, really should just hunt for shinies in platinum or something.

                      Essentially this. I had a lot of Unova Pokemon on my list, but I ended up with a full team of non-Unova Pokemon. You really just can't control it.

                      I have a friend that's actually SRing for a shiny at every chance possible in SoulSilver, and...yeah, that's a lot to SR for. She's even SRing for shiny roamers.
