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!

      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.

        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!

              I'm wondering if it's ok to make my own series of challenges based off the months, and put it on my subreddit. I will use the event challenges Sydian makes, but I will make my own for any missing months. I will give credit to you Sydian in the events you do make.

              So is it a yes?

              I'm fine with that, as long as you remember to give credit like you said. We have had a St. Patrick's Day challenge in the past and a Halloween challenge, and two different Christmas challenges. They're all listed in the FAQ if you need to see the rules, since I don't think you were on PC yet for some of them.

                Thanks Sydian!

                I also have an idea for May/Mothers day challenge. It is like an egg-spin, except you breed 10-15 different Pokemon yourself. You hatch all these eggs, and you are only allowed to use the females you hatch. If you hatch more than 6, breed again with all the male Pokemon you hatch, or dittos if you hatched no males.

                It is only a small idea, and it probably won't work well.
                _____________________________________________________________________________________---
                EDIT: DONE!
                Also, some ideas for other monthly challenges would be splendid.

                What about a Mother's Day challenge where everyone uses an unevolved Pokémon, and then the evolved form of that Pokémon, which will have to be female. So a team could be like:
                Petilil
                Eevee
                Swablu
                Lilligant (f)
                Vaporeon (f)
                Altaria (f)

                idk

                  Actually, that seems like a pretty good idea. Maybe the UE Pokemon has to be bred from the evolved Pokemon?

                    Meh, I think its good enough just having the UE and female evolved versions. Still gets the point across.

                    Also, on your subreddit, you should have a link to all the OP's of the challenges that get posted there. That would kind of help clutter, because there would be a central location for people to look for challenges.

                    Meloetta has been announced fr a March release, and I've been thinking it would be cool to create a challenge that centers around the release. So I'm gonna start working on that and post it a country Le of days before release so you guys can plan yur team and get your games ready. Hopefully it's level 15 or planning this will be quite difficult.

                    That would be neato. And running a challenge in May, when Mother's Day is, isn't always the best idea. I ran Save the Pokemon in May of 2011 and most people are busy with finals and such. Here they are anyway, but I remember it being a common problem in that event more so than any others, so I figured out that May is not the ideal month for an event lmao. :(
