      I've been contemplating a fairly interesting challenge. It involves all pokemon of a player's party that are used in battle to have the same move.

      i.e. an entire team where all the pokemon know slash.

      I'm thinking that this would encourage people plotting out their teams:
      -something like solarbeam would ideally isolate you to grass, fire, and normal types
      -something like tackle would give someone a broad spectrum, but a weak move that every team member must have

      I'm curious for input.
      Also, if anybody likes it, feel free to go ahead and start up the challenge. I'm very busy, and the most i could hope to do is maybe join it, much less moderate the challenge.

        I remember there once being a challenge like that. Don't remember how long lifespan / interest it got though.

        I'm thinking about reviving this challenge:

        http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=234182

        Just wanted to see if there was any interest. Looks like it had a really long run, as it was active through late last year. It seems like a cool challenge in my mind as it's a good chance to force yourself to use Pokemon you normally would never use, either because you couldn't fit it into your team, or the Pokemon in question is caught too late or after the end of the game to be usable.

        Ooh that was my first challenge! It was pretty fun, actually, especially when you got really crappy mons, and they ended up being awesome. I'd definitely participate in it again if it was revived, it was a good challenge!

        I like the Hunger Games challenge. It looks really fun to play. But I don't like the part about your Pokemon fainting and you can't use it anymore. I don't like those challenges :[

          Ohh I remember seeing The Ones That Got Away some time ago when I wasn't into challenges and thinking it was cool. I'd do it! :D

          Necrum, I loved that challenge. I ended up dropping it because the thread went inactive though. :( idk when I'd be able to participate, but it was really popular and I think it would still go over well! :)

            @altaria/Rewy: There was, but the OP did a pretty poor job of it (in my opinion) and made you choose between like 10 different moves. And I think there was some other restriction that was just dumb and made a bunch of people not want to do it.

            That was a nice challenge, I did that one early in my challenge career here . Sammuthegreat was a great owner for that one, although he hasn't been around for a long time.

            I think we have a general consensus that we love The Ones That Got Away. XD

            Right. I'll get on that as soon as possible then. I need to figure out what game I'm gonna play it on and create a brand new layout, since the old thread was a bit dated. Not to mention create a new list of ones that got away! XD

            Great. :) Hopefully I'll be able to participate some time. I've already got another challenge planned to post after I finish either my Random or Gym Leader though, so we'll see~!

            I'm currently doing the Pokemon Cycle Challenge and my Pokemon that I'm using for the challenge are Shiftry, Milotic & Camerupt. It's the first time I'll be doing a challenge without having to use a starter Pokemon

            Monotype can go by pretty fast if you play a game you know like the back of your hand. Or a solo.

              What about a no training challenge? So the only way you could level up your team would be through trainers and gyms. No tall grass stuff except to find your team. And you have to run away from all wild battles unless you plan on catching that wild pokemon.

              That's what I usually do to level up my team

              I don't battle wild Pokemon. Only time I do is at the beginning of the game when you can't encounter trainers yet

              Any suggestions for what I should use for the color pallet on The Ones That Got Away? I want it too look purdy like my other challenges.
