    Not really bored with it. I just... found it way too easy. >.> And with that I kept losing interest on the leveling after just 30 minutes. I'm now though free to go take my Black to Gamestop along with a few other piled up games to get Black 2 (since I'm so cheap that I won't want to restart my White2...)

    To be honest I got my SoulSilver when it was released in Japan. I still haven't gone to beat Red. Mostly because if I do. It's over finally... and then I most certainly won't have any reason to go derp around with Yellow Forest, Winner's Path and all other events I have stashed there.
    I'm looking at you Suicune for Zoroark event (on BW) and Celebi for the Giovanni event.

    @NecrumWarrior: I think I set all my challenges as "beat the E4 and you're done" which would just mean beating N in BW. Not all of them are set that way, but events I always set to that (I think). The grinding to go back for second round E4 is just horrendous. :|

    @Myrrhman: Thank you, dear! <3 We won't name names though haha.

    @Rewy: SoulSilver was the first game I had imported, actually. And if it helps, I've played both HG and SS countless times and have NEVER, on any file, gone to fight Red. The first time I'll do it is in my Gender Discrimination challenge. No where close to that point though, but yeah. Dreading it, even though I know he won't be that hard.

        Nobody hate on Sydian! Sydian is the most awesome member on all the Pokemon forums together! We'll always stand at your side! Besides, anything negative said about you is a lie *Cyberhugs Syd*

        I'm slowly progressing in my Pokemon Diamond, I'm doing a monotype rival run with a reallife friend. he uses Fight, I use Poison, after every gym we battle. I won 3 out of 3 so far. I love my Golbat and Gengar! >;P

        You guys are crazy. There's so much cool stuff to do AFTER beating Red in that game. Like catching the Hoenn Legendary Pokemon (Groudon and Rayquaza in your case) and getting starter Pokemon from other regions. HGSS is the only game I know that can stay interesting even after beating the strongest trainer in the game. Just because of all the cool stuff jammed into the game. I really miss my Pokewalker...

          Well my problem is that I've played my Emerald through dozens of times and I haven plenty of Groudons, Kyogres and Rayquazas from that. I also have plenty of 1st gen starters Pal Parked from my GBA games. I've played tag with Latios in my SS and caught Latias in Pewter City (event).
          Done more of less the same on my HeartGold last run and I'm just sort of... just sitting there with 16 badges always and looking at the level curve... and then going "nope", moving things to save on my Platinum or SS before thinking up a new run on it.

          Only legendaries that I've never had are Jirachi and Palkia... and Palkia is just that my first game was Diamond, with over 100 hours played before I moved everything to White, and I'm too lazy to go get it in Platinum.

          My Pokewalkers are almost all the time with me since they're in my bag (they get steps there) or pockets during the days.

          Necrum, if I could RNG HGSS, I would definitely have more incentive to beat it. XD

          Thank you, Wildy! :) -hugs-

            It is pretty funny. I just hate that the thread had nothing to do with Syd, and then some a$$ decided to single her out in front of everyone. Seriously? Who does that?

            I wish I could win everything without being there. Trophies being sent to my door and what not lol. I think we can move past this topic guys. The issue was actually resolved before that thread, it just had its lingering drama. Glad it's over. It better not come back. I like my hair and don't wanna pull it out.

            While I'm here and playing Emerald, I just want you to know...Tropius is a pain in the butt to train.

            Tropius are horrible to train, they take forever! That's why I gave up on mine and picked something else for my team ;) I hate when pokemon are weak and then are impossible to train. Like for one of the challenges I did, I had six pokemon from eggs... not fun. Especially when all bonsly could do was use copycat. >_

            Syd I honestly don't understand why someone could flat out accuse you of being mean at all. People should realize the importance of communication, rather than blurting out their feelings cause it feels right (I learned that the hard way).

            Anyways, I am really itching to do a challenge, and I know I have my favorite challenge almost ready to go, but I was thinking the monocolor challenge. I have never done it, but I love creeping on people's adventure logs (especially jdthebud's organized, professional looking ones lol). That brings to mind: which color is best?

            Bill, come get your eggs, they've been ready for like 3 days.

            Green comes with some surprisingly good options. Like Yanmega, and Breloom. Oh, and Bronzong (I don't know how it's green either...)

            Lol sorry bout that. In white I have to beat the first gym to get pal pad right? I'll get started.

            With green, the only problem is almost all the awesome green pokemon come in Platinum (which I don't have), and none of the emulators I try ever work! That being said, I could do it on Soul Silver.

            Blue, Purple and Orange are fabulous colours imo. Or just choose you favourite.

            Yeah but it's too bad they left out Orange from the Pokedex, those jerks.

            They did!?! How dare they. I'm pretty sure Raichu is orange, not yellow.

            Golurk is apparently green also. Green is a good color btw. If anyone remembers the St. Patrick's Day challenge in 2011, it was basically a green monocolor, and I ended up with a pretty diverse team (I used Emerald btw). Gen V green monocolor is good too because Petilil! :)

            @WeightyWillBill: Thank you darling. :)

            @GolurkIsDaBomb: Sadly, I'm stuck with Tropius. :( Vappy has Kakuna though, so Tropius compared to that is a blessing. lol

            I want to do a Green Monocolor now. Maybe in HG once I finish my Vault Hunter's challenge. Tyranitar is my favorite Pokemon after all, and Yanmega is pretty BA. Plus if I get a new Pokewalker I can get a Bronzor Post Game. Shroomish with Hoenn Sound. Whatever else I come up with. Lots of good ones as I said.

            Oh yeah, and Meganium, my favorite starter. :D

            That Kakuna (shudders). Well I managed to take out a Happiny in a couple of hits. I'm going to have to go buy some Eviolites.

            I'm thinking when we get Gen VI, we should make a "one from all" kind of challenge. It would only be allowed on XY of course, but the player uses a Pokemon from each generation in their team (whether it be decided by favorites, or the user who posts next). There could be restrictions of course, like for each slot picking a type of Pokemon, kind of like what Syd and vaporeon do with their HoF challenge (e.g. when syd said "an ugly Pokemon").

            Then again, I might be thinking way too far ahead lol.

            That's a good idea. Let your next person give a restriction to each Gen for your team choices, then build your team based on that. Awesome!

            I'm finally breeding my Favorites team. This is gonna be fun. I love all the Pokemon on my team! (Not happy about raising Hydreigon again though)

            I was thinking of that too, and it's nice we'll finally have 6 gens to do so with!

            All done breeding my team! Yay! Now I just gotta get to where I can trade them in.

            Yeah, that challenge would be an excellent way to use the Tags, which almost never get used. I still wanna come up with more ideas for a 6th gen only challenge.

            Well, there will most definitely be another favorites challenge to include Gen VI.

            Speaking of favorites challenge, I (partially) EV trained my Flacco (Murkrow) and Maitre'D (Corphish)! By partially I mean I trained them both with Lillipups and Patrats and Purrloins and got to like 60 attack EVs (good enough for me). I'm already loving these Pokemon!

            Just thinking about Gen VI Favs challenge makes me excited to know that they'll probably introduce a new favorite of mine, which they always seem to do C:
