Ooh Valentines day event! I don't know what game I can do it on though D; Except.. maybe firered (which I keep restarting) or possibly sapphire if I finish Diamond (so i can transfer mons).

I should learn how to use emulators D:

And @Syd, while it's not a challenge I'm about as close to beating White 2 as you are to beating Black 2. I just have to brave through victory Road with my level 60+ pokemon lol.

    Man, I always want to play the event challenges, but I have so many challenges running already that... Hnnnnnnnng.

    Depending what it is I suppose my recently opened LG would work. Also I suppose I have Black and White versions, but I get so lazy with them cause their not as good as BW2.

    Good thing y'all are already picking FR and LG, because RBY will not be allowed. ;)

    Well that pretty much gives away the fact that genders are involved...

    I was going to do a new Monotype, but I feel like doing something a little different. Can't wait for the event to start!

      Considering it's a Valentine's Day challenge, I figured genders being involved would be a given. :P

        If it wouldn't have gender's involved it would really be a surprise...

          Awww. :) I put some good thought into it and I hope it's as great as previous events! <3

          YEAH HE DOES. But if you're playing with that team in your sig, I would assume you'd be alright. :( Oh wait challenge mode........

            That exploding Onix and Sandstorm is not fun. D8

            Edit: it's almost a pity that Altaria isn't a single type nor does it have a Conquest type image available. My team would be ultimate fluff then. (Well ultimate would be keeping Mareep, but either way.)

            That is a shame. :( Altaria is so good too! Can't go wrong with Fly, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, and Dragon Claw (Pulse in gen IV and on tho). That's my standard Altaria set. :)

            Also, Valentine's challenge going up at midnight Central! :D I'm excited!

              Sweet! I have an open Gen 2 Game Cart that has that challenge's name on it.

              Well, my goal of finishing Black 2 before the event is ruined. I got stuck with a Japanese password on the Plasma Frigate and I've tried typing all the possible ones and have had no luck unlocking the gate. I've battled all the grunts as well, and have gotten that card thing. So idk what I could be doing wrong, other than reading the Japanese characters wrong or typing them wrong or Serebii has them wrong. No clue. :/ idk how I'm gonna finish it at all at this point.

              Have you tried looking it up on another source? Like Bulbapedia?

                Just remember to use Katakana input mode.

                Those should be the ones...

                I didn't see them listed on Bulbapedia. And I'll try those Rewy, thanks. Those were listed on Serebii though and didn't work before but ugh I wanna finish this lol. :( I did have it on Katakana though.

                Edit: None of them worked. :( Thanks though.

                  I just looked up from Marriland, since I've been idly watching all the let's plays while whacking around Plasma Grunts myself.

                  It's hilarious to play since my Zoroark is on the lead and my Fly/Strength slave Braviary is at the back...
                  "Braviary used Dig!" wait, what?

                  I'll probably look up something later. idk what I could be doing wrong though. :/ I've tried the Katakana codes at least four times each now. And I know it's not a number code because the first time I played this file, I remember them giving me the numbers 2, 2, 2, and 0. This time I got no numbers and I battled all of them and talked to them all after winning. Multiple times. So idk, maybe I'm hitting the wrong Katakana? I'm matching it up with what I've been reading though so idk. :/ This makes me upset. I wanna finish this challenge. If not today then...just in general. lmao

                  Edit: Didn't know there was a translating qwerty keyboard in the game. I used that and made it through. Too bad I spent about an hour and a half stumped. :/ idk if I'll finish by the end of the day now.

                    You should grind Zweilous off of Audino on route 23, or whichever route is right before victory road, they give a good chunk of exp. Also use rare candies if you have them?

                    Blue Shard Locations: Route 13, Route 13, Route 17, Route 17 (With Dowsing Machine), Desert Resort, Desert Resort (With Dowsing Machine), Mistralton Cave, Village Bridge, Relic Passage (With Dowsing Machine), PWT (Lose at PWT), Clay Tunnel (With Dowsing Machine), Reversal Mountain (With Dowsing Machine), Seaside Cave (With Dowsing Machine)

                    You can also get them in Join Avenue apparently. Good luck!

                    There's an Entree Mission for shard collecting that makes it pretty easy to build up a lot of shards pretty quick. I don't remember who you talk to to unlock it though.

                    Also, I got my Pokemon off LG, so I'm all set to start tomorrow!
