    Hey guys, I'm back for a bit. Upon further investigation, Conquest is freaking awesome. Doing all the post-game campaigns now and I retract what I said earlier about it being an average game. Soon as I finish all of them I'm going to get perfect links with all the warlords and what not.

    Also, how new is the liking thing? Looks fun.

      If everything goes right I will get B2 today. Then I'll monotype water it, so I got water done in every region! As for the challenge event, it was/is cool Sydian

      I am glad you liked it! It got some good reception and I am quite proud of the concept. :) It allows for more customization than previous events while still keeping things in a certain criteria. So I am a bit proud of myself for that one haha.

      I saw that for a bit too, what brought that on? Is there a thread about it somewhere?

      And I am also having fun w/ White 2.

      Myrrh, how fun is Conquest? thinking about trying it out.

      Audy likes to do a lot of coding stuff, haha. However, I think it's because we get a lot of suggestions for a like feature that brought it on. I asked for prefixes in Metal/Color and Advance Generation the other night and he gave me colored prefixes! :) I love them so much! I need to get him to add them in here though haha. :3

      I worked on my challenge bowl stuff today...my team is so awful. XD Hopefully when Timburr and Phanpy evolves and Swablu gets added to the team, we'll be better. Smeargle got a new move today too (Sketch became Leech Seed) so we'll see. I might work on it again tonight.

        Imma call you crazy for using Smeargle, but it's really cool that you do actually use it! It seems more useless than Shuckle, who was actually pretty good after getting Toxic!

        I went with it because it's part of my old username, but also because sports fans tend to paint their face or body haha. It's hard to use, but it has been useful in tight spots, so not too many complaints really. It gets better and better as I go along.

          Hello! Well, I'm back. With a challenge idea. I would like to make it myself, and I just need some criticism on it and how to make it validated successfully (as in, making it better so it can stand as a thread). I just found an idea...an ASCII challenge. Here's how it goes: You specify a certain sentence. Later, I'll find out what it'd look like in ASCII code and determine the Pokemon that they can use from that ASCII code. Example:

          User 1: A great revelation.
          Me: 65 32 103 114 101 97 116 32 114 101 118 101 108 97 116 105 111 110 46. Out of all these numbers, the Pokemon chosen from these numbers are...No. 6, No. 3, No.1, No.111, No.77, and No.99.

          Like that. Of course, the Pokemon chosen would conform to a rule...Maybe...it must be available to catch before mid-game (before the 4th badge). It must be able to be caught in the game. Stuff like that. Well, that's all I can say about the challenge. It's pretty simple.

          EDIT: Oh yeah, can I make the thread and be delayed on participation? I want to do it in B2, but I don't have it...yet.

          Sounds interesting, but I would try to make it so anyone can actually do the conversion, since threads that are dependent on the thread owner assigning teams don't usually last very long. Maybe try to make it simpler or something? idk.

            @JD: If you've ever played any of the Final Fantasy Tactics series, the battles are very similar to those. I recommend it, its a completely different game and has quite a bit of challenge potential.

            @RGoF: I like the idea, especially if you put a link to an ASCII converter so everyone can make their teams, like JD said. What would you think about everyone using their usernames? That could potentially work.

            Not gonna lie, when I get challenge submitted that require this, if I don't know that user well enough (like if they're new or I've never seen them and have no clue about how their activity here is or will be), then it'll be denied. It's easier to have those challenges so that other challengers can also assign teams. Cause believe me, it's hard to keep up with that. Hell, I can't even keep up with sign-ups most of the time. Still have to update Challenge Bowl's challenger list UGH. >:( who wants to go through and look at all the sign ups for me and pm me the ones i haven't added yet n___n no one? thought so.....

            But yeah, I think once you work out the other kinks, just make it so that others can assign teams and it should work out better. You don't ever wanna have challengers dependent on the OP for that. Some get needy just over the challenger list and request I lock threads because of inactive owners. @_@

                Do my challenge :P

                You could do a solo challenge, that way it'd be monotype no matter what!

                Or you could combine it with a monocolor? Or even a mono-body style could be interesting...

                For type you should use bug, since it was the weakest type in gen 3 (I think it was at least) so much more challenging. Or you could normal, could be interesting.

                  Monocolor and monotype are pretty easy to combine imo, as well as a lot of the time monocolor + monotype + gym leader. For someone like me who is slowly doing all of what I think of as the "main" challenges (Solo, Duo, Trio, Nuzlocke, Evil Team, Gym Type, Gym Disadvantage, Catch 'em All, One in Each, Random, Gym Leader, Elite Four, Monotype, Color, Tier, and Alphabet*) challenges, combining and making 2/3 in 1 challenges not only makes it fun/more difficult, it also saves a LOT of time.

                  *Disclaimer: My list of challenges was made at a time where all of these challenges were "prominent" challenges, and I know like the Gym Type/Disadvantage aren't active right now, but they're still solid challenges for someone to do.

                    I'm not looking for something that restricts my teams choices, I would rather have some extra gameplay rules to make it more difficult, but thanks for the opinions!

                      Why is this topic so dead! Has anybody ever did a challenge in which you can have only 3 attack slots? I just did that on my ground monotype in Crystal, I hacked in 4 TM Sandstorm, just to give my whole team Sandstorm, which is close to useless in-game. It's really limiting for most Pokemon if you can only use 3 moves on it, since you get less coverage, or lack a stab move, or miss on an important supporting move.

                        I probably have. Not on purpose though. Some Pokemon with really small movepools only have like 3 good moves.

                        A lot of the time I find myself just using one or two moves on a pokemon, especially up until the 4th gym or so. (although this really depends on the pokemon)

                        Has anybody ever done some sort of a layer challenge? Where you start off with one rule and then as you go you get more rules (say, per gym leader) Or the opposite, you start off with many rules and then lose a rule after each gym leader?

                        Or perhaps you start off with a bunch of rules and earn points in various ways, and then can use points to get rid of a rule??? :/

                        I haven't done a challenge that layers (that I remember anyway) and I'm sure we've had a challenge with a point system like that. I personally don't like the over the top MMORPG or point system style challenges though. Involves other people too much and I don't want to have to rely on someone or have someone rely on me. I take challenges pretty slowly. lol

                          Yeah that's right Syd, but it was fainted in that case :3.

                          And same here, I never played a challenge that stacks rules or requires points. Imo, that's too much effort outside of the game to be fun. I prefer a difficult in-game challenge. Like my mono-water nuzlocke on black 2 >.< Seems like a suicidal move to me. How tha **** can I EVER beat Kyurem-Black forme!

                            Does that make you Nurse Joy?

                            And I don't like doing layer challenges (or even Scramble for that matter). There's just too many things to remember, and I'm just bound to forget.

                              Uuuh, I hope not, since I think I'm a boy still.. O_O

                              And I do like Scramble challenges once in a while though, since it kind of makes good Pokemon difficult to use as well ;D. And I love difficult challenges. Although a monowater nuzlocke on black 2 is way more difficult than expected. I got only my Samurott alive, along with a freshly caught level 30 alomomola. Just after the eight gym O_O.

                                Uhhh Nurse Roy?

                                And my biggest problem is that I like getting a challenge, and then maybe taking a little break, and then saying "okay, time to do that challenge" and doing it in one fell swoop without having to look back and see what the rules are. Some challenges just have too many rules (or like the scramble, where I have to remember specific movesets that I wouldn't normally have? Forget it!)
