    Hrrrrrrr trying to think up a team for a challenge mode use. I mean to make it challenging just to play on my own.
    (the one on my sig is for black 2 once it bothers to arrive from the mail...)

    I have so far planned to have everyone evolve only once.
    • Dewott (NFE)
    • Flaaffy (NFE)
    • Flareon (Stone evo... and because I've never ever used one and there's now at least three physical fire attacks to choose from)
    • Archeops
    I'm debating between a Simisage (because stone evolution to pair with Flareon) or Sawsbuck (because I've been curious to use it before)...
    And not sure if I have anything valid to pair for Archeops. :<

    ...and if anyone wonders the "theme" is furry & fluffy


    I'm just about trained up enough for Roxie with a Dewott and Flaaffy. After the gym I'm planning to grab an Archeops egg from another game. I'm just trying to think up a proper spots where to train and who and when to add more members to the team. I mean I could've just draggen Archen in straight after Cheren's fight.

    Am free for ideas, since no one in my few friends seems to think playing pokemon is a proper way to pass time...

      Altaria always is an option, and it's definitely fluffy!

        Yis, incredibly fluffy but Route 14 is quite late to start training. Hmm... =/
        Not impossible, but I'll consider it once I've decided with between the monkey and deer.

          Simisage is kind of good...until the last few gyms and Elite Four....while Sawsbuck has a better movepool (Horn Leech FTW) and also packs more power than a Simisage...sorry my 2nd favorite monkey...but if you WANT the challenge of Simisage being useful...then pick it! (it's also Underused compared to Sawsbuck)

          I don't think that was included in his challenge...hahaha. Trying to think of a drunk Pokemon now. Slaking comes to mind. He looks drunk. Then he's screwing around every other turn doing drunk things.
          Spinda came to mind as well. Also...

            Well I'm already neck deep in trouble with Ice-types of Plasma and then some Rock-types.
            I'm so tempted to take them both, but then I wouldn't get Flaaffy a wooly friend...
            • Simisage because of Crunch from Pansage and Acrobatics, but that Gluttony isn't really... useful.
            • Sawsbuck because those Fighting moves and I've never used one, but all those painful things from dual-typing...

            Well I'll just play all the way to Nimbasa, because it's the place where I sort of need to decide on that team member.

              I have a quick question about playing a nuzlocke on Pokemon Black. How much do the new EXP mechanisms affect grinding ? I would assume it's much difficult, but does this render the game unplayable ?

              I finally managed to move everything over to Black 2 and I've been thinking of resetting my first Gen V game for challenges.

              If you can find a spot to spawn Audino, it's not that bad, especially once you get the Lucky Egg. It is pretty hard to grind on normal wilds though.

              It doesn't make it impossible, but if you're typically overleveled, like I am, then it can be annoying when you aren't getting adequate experience from the wild Pokemon or even the trainers. I can't speak for how it works in Nuzlockes though.

              If you use Audino for grinding (you can grind in Nuzlockes right?) then it shouldn't be too unbearable.

                How common are Audions anyways ? I remember having trouble finding one for normal Pokedex catching business.

                Sounds fair enough. See what I can do.

                Okay, gonna catch a box of Patrats on B2 and transfer whatever's left then start the challenge. Thanks for the advice.

                  Audino's are pretty normal find on a shaking grass. Just find a spot where you can run around next to some bushes without seeing water. Just be patient and ready with the repel. (It prevents anything else to jump you when you try going to the shaky spot.)

                  --

                  Edit:
                  These Eevees in Castelia Garden are so trolling me... >.> "Nope, I won't stay in that ball even if I'm at 1HP and asleep. Nope."
                  In other curiosities. Am I just too used to over planning my team, or is Challenge Mode supposed to be Challenging? I just ran back from Driftveil after getting Surf so I can pick up few awesome early game hidden TMs... And I've been doing just fine with my team of Three (Now 4 after I caught an Eevee...)

                    Speaking of bugs, why does Scyther only learn normal type moves by level up in Red and Blue? ):

                      What about a challenge that involves on using pokemon related to your Zodiac sign? I have also heard that there are different zodiacs so using one pokemon from each of your zodiac.

                      That's been suggested many time, and I think there is a thread for it.

                      There's still a thread for it? I know we've had one, but I haven't seen it in forever so I thought it died off or something. Hm.

                      And wasn't someone else working on that challenge anyway? They haven't posted it yet I don't think...not that I remember. So if anything, it's currently in the works.

                      I do remember some one working on that, yes. They discovered new Zodiacs most people don't know about so they had to add them.

                        Yes, I have been working on the challenge, and it is actually finished. I posted it to the subreddit, but not here because I couldn't find the time to participate in it.

                        Though if someone wishes to post the topic, I can easily send you the picture.

                        Thanks guys, for forgetting me already.

                          Done both that challenge and one where you can only use Pokemon that are weak to the Gym type. I like this one better.

                          Hey guys, I have a question for all of you. What game do you guys find better for challenges, BW or BW2? I am unsure of which one would be best, and I'm curious to see what everyone else believes. General speed in which one could complete the game, given typical end requirements of the games, is pretty important in my decision.

                          imo, BW2 is much superior to BW1. In addition, most challenges require you beat Alder in BW1, meaning lots of tedious grinding, but BW2 standard is the first fight against Iris.

                          BW2 has much more Pokemon and it's a more difficult game, plus challenge mode. If I had a free BW2 file, I'd be using those games more often for challenges instead of BW.
