    I think I saw something like that before, but I'm not sure. Also, who decides what represents a sign? Apart from that it seems interesting, but not something I'd prefer to do. I'll stick with monotypes :3

      And *that* is why my challenge is only a draft. I think animals can decide on what Zodiac they fall under, like Cats, and Foxes will fall under Leo, and Cows and Dogs will fall under Taurus. Though Capricorn will be a very big problem, considering there are no goats, and sheeps will fall under Aeries.

      You could count deer as goats. So Sawsbuck, Stantler...I think it would work. ...Arceus is a space goat...lol.

        Decided that Capricorn will be Deer, Elephants, and Bears. Why? They wouldn't fall under anything else.

        You could always take some inspiration from the Unova Horoscope in B/W.
        Seen here.
        Syd was right about Sawsbuck.

          Some of them I already labeled under Signs, like Bouffalant and the Gothorita family, but some of them seem like pretty good ideas like the Klink and Lampent families. Though I already had a completely different idea for both those signs.

          Happy New Year everyone! I've got new ideas for challenges this year and am super excited to see what this year brings!

          My New Years resolution is to finish my Ultimate Monotype Challenge for Bug types! Anyone else with challenge resolutions?

          Trade Corner. Hey, watch what you say. That's more or less my home on PC. Who are you asking over there? Cause some of them are cool and some of them are kinda... well, I guess I shouldn't go saying things I'll regret.

          EDIT: I just found your post in TC. Most of the Trade Shop owners don't really check the Quick Trade Thread. You would be better off making some requests in people's shops.

          I'm very limited with challenges until my laptop is returned. I guess I could always do a Hall of Fame Challenge on my Black 2 or something. I also should update the Nuzlocke thread.

          On an unrelated note, I just choked on a carrot.

          I'd tell you to go to my shop, but I'm inactive in there atm!

          Resolutions, eh. I never make any resolutions, really. I'd just like to finish my Random, Favorite, and Gender Discrimination. And then that other Hall of Fame challenge. Ummmm I also really wanna play Emerald and raise a Beautifly idk why though, but that would just be a normal playthrough.

            My resolution is to finish the Random, Time Warp, and Low Stat challenges this year. I won't be starting any new challenges until then.

            Well I just finished my first Ultimate monotype using Grass. A pretty good way to start the new year, I would say. Too bad I have school starting in a few days and between band and AP classes I probably won't have time for too many challenges for a while :/
            But it has been a great Christmas break! Very successful from a challenge point of view, considering I was able to do the second half of Sapphire, and all of Diamond and Black to complete my monotype!

              My two resolutions are two be more active on PC and to finish my super jumbo challenge that I've named "Project Perfect Pokemon". Basically I found every Pokemon game that I could (27 in total) and I'm going to 100% beat each and every one of them. Obviously I'm not going to do both Red and Blue, since they're the same game, but I will do like Sapphire and Emerald, since they're different. So far I'm done with Blue and ALMOST done with both Stadium and Silver. The reason that I've been so inactive on PC is because I've been doing my PPP challenge and streaming it on Twitch and stuff and that really sucks you in lol.

                Is Trozei in your PPP challenge? Probably the hardest Pokemon game to complete 100%.

                  Ugh, I hate Trozei. Too hard. My resolution is to finish three Pokemon games by the end of the year. Seems easy to you guys. Hard for me.

                    Hard? Unbelievably yes.
                    Bad? Unbelievably no.

                    I find it quite a fun game. Extremely hard, but fun.

                      It's a relief to see the regulars still around as well as some new faces. As for my challenges, I'm gonna have to edit my signature soon undecided on where to pick up on first, I might go for my RBY solos just to finish them up and be done with it.

                        You think that Onix seems like a pain? I already did Ditto and Magikarp AND Abra. I tried to do all the hardest ones first. I'm just going in whatever order I feel. Pretty much looking at the Pokedex and picking whatever one sounds fun at that moment in time.
