    Hmmmm, what about another challenge like the Event Bowl but with Holiday Symbols. Here are some off the top of my head.

    Giver- Has to have 3 move's that aren't attacks, one of which has to benefit either the users team or the opposing team. (I.E. Swagger)
    Holiday Spirit- Teams core. Special Attack and Speed must be the 2 highest stats.
    Scrooge- Must have base happiness below 70. (The only gen this would be a problem in is any of the Kanto Games because the only ones below 70 that aren't legendaries is the Dragonite family.)
    Jack Frost- Pokemon must learn blizzard.
    Everlasting Candle- A fire type that has to learn Flash.
    Present From The GM: What ever pokemon you'd like. (Base Stats below 550)

    But a scramble relies on other players again, which is not very good for an event. And I'm already doing a mono-ice on Ruby did one on Diamond and Crystal. So if we were to monotype it with ice, only first and last gen are availabl for me ;3
    The difference there is that if someone else drops out, you're not affected, unlike playing in teams or having to swap teams and eggs with people. And if we did that, we could change it to where one person could assign all your stuff instead of having to wait on different people to give you something. idk if that's how it's still run though, cause I haven't done a scramble in a long time so maybe it's been changed since then.

      Well yeah that could work, but I would still like to decide my own team, for me that's a big part of the challenge.

      Problem: Entei, Ho-Oh, Victini, and the Litwick line are the only fire types who can legitimately learn Flash, which would make the Generation I games unusable, and require using a legendary in the Generation II, III, and IV games, as well as hacking in the Generation III games and D/P/Pt.

      I think you should try putting a width limit on it so it looks nice on wide screens (like mine, everything fits but the last word, lol), or just have the last sentence be on its own line.

      That sounds like effort. I'm not a good designer or anything, so I just did what looks good on my screen. :( But all the forums in GPGD except PGC have a splash and I recommend everyone go look at them lol.

        Make sure you check back as far as two months, since that's the revival limit in here as opposed to one month like the other sections. If you don't see it, then feel free to make it. :o

        I personally have been wanting to get back into the TCG and remembered there was a TCG challenge where you used only Pokemon from a certain deck. I wish that was back, but I don't have a free game to use atm nor do I feel like starting it and being in a new challenge. Plus I am awful at keeping up with threads and challengers and answering questions in them lol. Maybe after I clear out some I will restart it, buuuut meh.

        Speaking of that, I beat my monocolor in Ruby the other day. :) It was magical!

          I beat my Delibird solo in HeartGold, man, that was hell >.< Even the Leafgreen solo with Eevee was easyer, apart from Brock being a pain.

          Anybody got a new and very difficult challenge for me, which I can combine with monotype? ;3

            Your holly jolly mood should be around a while. It's not even December 1st.

            And you should solo Ditto, wildy.

            I really want to participate in more challenges but I don't have the games to do them with and I dislike playing on ROMs. If I get desperate enough though I might, and I do have FireRed I could restart as well I guess ...

            That said I did restart my White and started a challenge. There was no such challenge for what I was doing though and since I was unsure if anyone would participate I decided 'oh well. no will know my progress woe'

              If you have a DS you should consider getting an AceKard (no one yell at me, downloading Pokemon Roms is perfectly legal if you already own a physical copy which I'm sure you have a few)

              You can play Gameboy and Gameboy color games on it as well as DS games

              The perfect solution for those with unavailable game slots and as I said legal if you put games you already own on it

              Anywaaayyyyyy Syd is trying to steal X-mas by making me wait forever for an X-mas challenge

              imma pout

              Alas, All we have here are DS Lites. but maybe if I ever get the 3DS I want I can consider getting one.

              And yeah, I know. But for all generations I don't really have any extra cartridges. Makes me wish I didn't give away Sapphire haha. So yeah. All I have is FireRed, White, and I guess Platinum if I can find it. I'm good with sticking to the current Challenge I have on White; at Twist Mountain right now on it.

                There is an acekard for every version of the DS

                Anyyywaaaayyyy I started a new challenge, it's simple, yet entertaining if anyone wishes to give it a try, I decided to use green version since I've never played it before

                omg

                this is the worst translation ever, I don't understand how this could have happened? Was Red and Blue not out prior to this translation or something?

                Some of the sprites are creepy but are actually really good almost yellow version quality

                ^^I think that you, and also BinaryPeaches, should tell us your challenge ideas! I enjoy simple and new challenges, so you guys should definitely share! :D

                Also, for the Christmas Event challenge, maybe we d=could do something relating to stockings? You'd have to have a team of six, and half the team would be "presents," meaning you'd have 3 awesome pokemon, and the other three would be "coal" and would be NFEs or whatever. Feel free to elaborate. My most basic idea is that you have something negative relating to coal. Lol

                Or coal like...three Pokemon you hate. We could have like...a list of various types of presents and then various types of coal and then someone could assign them their six, with three of each.

                Example:
                Presents:
                Favorite Pokemon
                Pokemon with your favorite move
                Legendary with BST under 600
                In-game trade Pokemon
                Fossil Pokemon
                Coal:
                Least favorite Pokemon
                NFE Pokemon
                Ugly Pokemon
                Pokemon with bad moveset

                Something to that nature. That's just what came off the top of my head. I kinda like this one, as people will end up with...interesting teams. XD We're getting closer and closer to December, so this is probably my favorite suggestion and if nothing else comes to mind, I think this would work best. Very simple, plus my Ruby version is free to do a challenge now. :)

                Sounds good to me. Shouldn't gift pokemon be included in the Presents category though? And for Coal...ummm...there prolly should be another option...

                Wait, maybe a black colored pokemon? although that doesn't really fit the theme of "bad".

                How about pokemon used by the evil gang in your game? Grunts only, so we don't have people using the leader's pokemon, which can be awesome at times.

                These aren't the greatest ideas, but they're something

                Oh the Christmas Challenge sounds good! Already thinking on what I can use on FireRed if I find it and decided to do this challenge (forget about the normal monotype I already have on it haha. I could always try that challenge again afterwards).

                As for the Challenge I'm doing on my White it's pretty simple? Just choose a Pokemon Trainer from the Anime (so different from the PWT one) and use their team to complete the game. If they're a character that goes across different regions use the team that they have in said region, and if it's a character where you see them gain Pokemon throughout (like Ash) you start using the Pokemon when they started using them. Also same movesets as the Pokemon and such as well if possible. /o/; On my White I'm doing none other than Ash's Unova team so I'm balancing ten Pokemon and using whatever Pokemon he used in ___ gym in the anime at that gym. For the Elite Four I'll use the first six we see him use in the league/know he will use in the league. Yup ... i'm a dork.

                  I like the christmas event idea!

                  But how about for Coal a Pokemon that always gives you trouble in-game in some kind of way? Maybe when you use it, maybe when you are put against it, maybe because you keep seeing it or something like that?

                  Interesting Challenge idea BinaryPeaches! I would do that, but mehhhh dtoo much looking things up lol. And I have NO free games at them moment :(

                  As for the Christmas event (if that's what we're going with) I agree with the format you have Sydian, a list of 3 present options and a list of three coal options. (with a bonus that you must use delibird if playing GSC/HGSS) I think we should have a *gift list* of presents (so maybe 6 guidlines for a pokemon you have to use (i.e. 600 BST legendary, pokemon of your favorite type, in game trade etc.) and you pivk three of them for your challenge. For ones like "pokemon of your favorite type" you'd say your type, and the person posting below you would assign you your pokemon based on whuchever *presents* you've chosen. We'd do the same with a list of 6 for the coal, you pick 3 and the person below assigns you your pokemon.

                  I feel like this way it has more of that gift-giving spirit, (think of the person posting below as your secret santa) and also, who always receives presents that were on the top of their list? ;) I think this adds a bit more fun than assigning your own, and stops you from giving yourself a tangela in BW2 or something for your coal *NFE pokemon.* (since tangela is good already, PLUS eviolite :P) I don't think people would really abuse it, but just in case.

                  And if you're worried about having to wait for someone to respond, I don't think that will be an issue, as the last event got like 5 posts a day! :D

                  Sounds good to me. Shouldn't gift pokemon be included in the Presents category though? And for Coal...ummm...there prolly should be another option...

                  Wait, maybe a black colored pokemon? although that doesn't really fit the theme of "bad".

                  How about pokemon used by the evil gang in your game? Grunts only, so we don't have people using the leader's pokemon, which can be awesome at times.
                  Oh, I really like these ideas! :) Thank you!

                  If anyone else has ideas for what can be a present and what can be coal, feel free to VM or PM them to me. I gotta work on the MOTY stuff tonight as well as posting the challenge. Sorry the challenge is so rushed btw. XD But I'll try to think of some other stuff as well. Since everyone seems to be on board with this stocking thing, then that will be it and I'll try to have it up around midnight CST! :)

                  edit: or tomorrow morning because i am really tired night night. btw, MOTY challenge ballot is up, so please vote everyone! the GPGD ballot is up in PGC so please vote in that one as well. night night birdies.

                    I recently made a challenge, yet its hardly getting attention...

                    Is there someway I can advertise it? I'm thinking of making a link in my signature.

                    A link in your sig and posting about it here is really all you can do. Or talking about it in #swablunest, but the chatroom I started months ago was pretty unsuccessful, so even if you go in there, you'd be talking to...well, no one haha.

                    Speaking of advertising though, everyone make sure you vote in the MOTY ballots! There are section specific ones here in Challenges and the ballot in PGC covers the other four forums of GPGD and neither of them have gotten much attention. And also make sure to vote in the main MOTY ballot in Other Voting Polls to represent our little corner of Challenges! :)
