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.

            I remember you! Welcome back, and look forward to a new year of challenges.

            By the way Syd, what happened to the MOTY thread?

              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.

                For Magikarp and similar, how did you beat Ghosts? Or did you just hack on Bubble or something if they ever came up?

                  Yeah, since you cannot pp stall them in RBY, and you cannot hit ghosts otherwise. :D. ditto seems really hard too.

                  Results are posted in Other Voting Polls. It's at the bottom of PC btw. I know some of you guys probably don't scroll past Challenges, hehe. :P

                  Congrats to all the winners btw!

                  Hi there, I don't actually know you, since I only started being really active in Challenges recently, but I have seen some of your work looking through old threads. You got some nice stuff!

                  I'm doing a Solo Challenge for Gallade myself right now, cause I noticed no one else had done that one on the list (though the list is a little out-dated) and it seemed like a fun choice.

                  Yeah, for Magikarp I had to hack on Bubble. I only kept it on for the battles I needed it for, though, since there was literally no other method of defeating some Pokemon. I can't remember if I had to hack any moves for similar situations on anything else, it's been quite a while.

                  I suppose it's fitting also, as iicr, there was an event Magikarp in Gen II that had Bubble.

                  Are you going ultimate for your solo challenge, or just doing one game?
                  I'm just doing Single. I don't really want to do any Ultimate challenges outside Monotype. It seems more fun doing Single Solo. I'm thinking about doing Blaziken on Ruby next. But that's a ways down the road...

                  I'm currently working on a Challenge to post that features Legendary Pokemon at the moment, since there are very few challenges that allow them (and with good reason). But they're fun to use so I figured I would make a challenge that makes using them more difficult while allowing you to play with some of the most powerful Pokemon in the series.

                  Magikarp actually wasn't as bad as I had imagined, I think Abra actually might have annoyed me the most because it was getting OHKO'd or 2HKO'd by a lot of things until it got a decent STAB move.
