Well, I'll add up an alternative for it that can be obtained in Emerald and represents the Era (the way I see it anyways xD)

    Oh sweet, I was going to write up a message about that in a moment.
    (Was making a team rocket themed pokemon team all day. It's... hard.)

    ^^ Everyone has different interpretations of pokemon so I don't mind. Rules are rules.
    For one I don't see Clefairy ever being cute...

    Guys, I'm going to be making a new Gym Leader challenge thread soon (probably tonight, that's how soon lol) and I was just wondering if anyone is actually interested. I'm worried no one will want to participate and that I'll have made it for nothing, cause I'm making this one for all games and all gym leaders, so the other gym leader challenges that are game specific will be locked. And I know they all follow different rules pretty much, so eh. :(

    You can play any game as any gym leader. There's about 15-20 Pokemon for each leader to choose from. Must have at least a team of four. You may trade or hack in up to 3 Pokemon. Must use the signature Pokemon if at all possible, or it's pre-evolution (ex. Use Onix in Red if you're playing as Jasmine). The lists of Pokemon were taken from all that person's gym leader appearances, and some had to have some added (gen I and II probably have more than anyone since they were in Stadium games).

    The rules are different than the other gym leader challenges, so idk what I'll do about people that are in the middle of one of the old ones that want to re-sign up. Probably just let them finish with their old rules. But all the gym leader challenges have different rules anyway, so eh. This one will be much better organized and more official, and less restrictive since you can go as Clay in Blue if you wanted to lol.

    Yay, thanks. n__n It should be up tonight. I'm also trying to finish Gender Discrimination rn so yeah haha. I feel bad that I have to lock all the other gym challenges, but I think one is dead, no one cares about the GSC one, and...no one has even signed up for the DPPt one so eh. Saying that makes me feel better. :P And with my thread, ultimate is possible. n__n Not that I'm gonna do one, but for those that like to.

    I prefer challenges that aren't Gen restricted. It makes the challenge more fun and it invites more people to join :)

      I also prefer challenges that aren't gen-restricted. I just got my Pokemon Black (German version) in the mail, so I'm going to RNG abuse my IDs then do another monotype. Looking at Normal, Fighting, or Flying. Opinions?

          GREEN SNAKES! \o/

          I started doing a TeamRocket / Giovanni team challenge (team taken from all the games and the manga, because I really wanted a crobat) last week and after trading in a Meowth egg (because i'm playing it on HeartGold) the first pokemon I ran into was a Shiny Sentret.
          SO PINK AND STRIPES! She's currently my "HM slave" as Furret so I can keep her along.

          Same for the challenge -
          I'll join up once I'll finish up my Platinum run. *twitches* Sinnoh....

            Immediately thought "No, its silver snakes, green monkeys."

            Please tell me someone else knows.

            I didn't know what that was from, and so I looked it up... AND OMG I LOVED LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE. I only saw like 5 episodes but it was AWESOME.

            And I'm glad there will finally be an all gen gym leader challenge. I might partake now! ^_^

              Sadly no idea where that is from. No Nickelodeon around here.

              It's also sad that Arbok is yellow/gold snake rather than green. Oh well...

              Normal is fun to monotype. They're so versatile. <3

                Yeah, I learned that once on Emerald playthrough.
                Zigzagoon with Surf. I wasn't expecting it... my poor Nosepass...

                Also they seem to learn all the bolts/beams for elemental things. Some even with Psychic. o.o I should really try once to go all Normal.

                  Yep, they've been the most diverse pokemon since the beginning. Makes up for them not being SE against anything.

                    I've decided to keep the Ekans on my team, even though it's fighting monotype. :P One of my own rules is that I can always use random shinies^^ Since they are so rare anyway

                      My darling shiny Furret, Innis, just became part of Hall of Fame at level 16. She dodged a Dragon Tail Dragon Rush from Lance. Like a boss. o-o I had to toss her in to revive my Persian for a flinch to stop an Outrage Blizzard.

                      I honestly did not expect getting through the League with a bunch of level 41-44's.
                      Slow Gyarados + Avalanche + positive Attack nature = Oh my god you...

                      Edit: Just re-read that with thought. lol, what I meant to write was Dragon Tail -> Dragon Rush (inaccuracte move is inaccurate) and Blizzard. All the Dragonites in that fight with similar move sets. And this was an hour or two after I beat Clair, who does use Dragon Tail a lot... hrrr....

                          Segment the Shiny Arbok is AWE-SOME! Way better than expected, having the strongest attack on the team, as well as having great stats overall. I love her!<3 beat Clair's Kingdra EASILY, just a few Sludge Bombs. Never had such an easy Claire battle.

                          Alright, I'm gonna try to monotype Conquest. I already tried to on the hardest storyline in the game and lost, like 4 times. So I'm trying a mid-difficulty one now. Hope this works!

                          Rule: Must invade other kingdoms with the monotype team
