The Ones That got Away is up and running! Sorry it's not all purdy. I was dead tired when I finished typing it up, and wanted to get it up as soon as possible. I'll make it look nice later when I get off work. :D

PS: I love my team.

So I'm at the Dewford city Gym and I only got my Seedot until now. I don't wanna evolve it because it will have a big weakness against Fighting type, but they're still beating my Seedot >.<

If it gets too hard you can just come back later after Flannery or something, because you only need to beat Brawly before Norman.

Yeah, if I were you, I'd just skip Brawly for now and come back later. If you're way over his level, even if your Pokemon is Dark type, he probably won't deal enough damage to you and you'll be alright by that point.

Hey Sydian, any luck getting that corrected splash inserted in? I still have a scroll bar on the bottom of the Challenges homepage.

In other challenge news, I completed my Rock Ultimate monotype yesterday. Only 2 more to go, both just for Unova! 6th gen is coming though...

That's awesome! The only random shiny I've found while doing a challenge was in the first version of the Favorite Challenge. Got a shiny Ekans. 8) Traded it to my HG and used her on my team. HER NAME IS PANTS.

Really Sydian...? Naming your Ekans 'pants'?

What Pokemon you got?
I got an Ekans, called pants. It's in my Pokeball (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜

That has to be thing ever.

I've never found a shiny (not Gyarados) in a challenge before. I'd be annoyed if I did on an emulator though.

When you are playing a Japanese game and have 5 characters for a name and are rushing with adrenaline, sometimes all you can think about is a nice pair of pants.

How about a discussion question?

What is your favorite region to play challenges in? Least favorite?

For me, I really enjoy playing Kanto. I've beaten two challenges in kanto and have two more going right now and it just hasn't gotten old for me. Maybe it's just the nostalgia, but if that were the case I would be as excited in johto, which happens to be my favorite region over all.

My least favorite has been Sinnoh. It just feels so slow. I mean, I don't like to speed through my games, but it's ridiculous how sluggish Sinnoh is. I have yet to play any challenges in Hoenn, so hopefully it doesn't give me a reason to change my answer, though I doubt it will since it's really hard to be worse than sinnoh.

    lalala Hoenn forever

    ...I actually can't answer this question properly because I've only tried challenges on three games total lmao but I'm confided Hoenn is the best for me. I know Emerald like the back of my hand and it's still a great region to play through. Johto's also fun, but wow challenges tend to get long when you have to go through two regions, beat the E4 twice, and beat Red.

    My least favourite would definitely be either DP Sinnoh or BW. They're so slow. And boring. And BW's so linear. They're just not fantastic games and they don't have a lot of 'mon I really want to use and I don't like playing them really. So they don't really make challenges fun. :|

    RSE and BW(2) seem to be my go-to games for challenges. I can complete a challenge easiest and quickest in RSE, but I like the variety that gen V games give me, so it usually depends on the challenge I'm doing as to which game I'm going to pick.

    Least favorite ummm...I know you said region, but I don't like having to play GSC/HGSS past the Johto part, especially in HGSS where Red is even more difficult than in the originals. As for a region as a whole like you're asking though, I can't even do regular playthroughs in Sinnoh, so I would never do a challenge in it. Noooo thanks. I just can't do that place anymore. :( I really can't. So much need for HMs.

      Favorite is definitely Kanto, specifically RBY. Goes by so fast, and I can get a challenge done in an hour on a good day. Plus, I've done so many that I just know that region to the point that a couple months ago I could name every trainer Pokemon that I fought up to like Erika.

      Least favorite has to be DPPt. Like said before, it is soooooooooooooooooooooooo slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow. SO SLOW.

        What do you think about a Starter-challenge?

        using only starter pokemons, you will need more games to get the starters from thats the only prob.

        You mean like a Starter Trio challenge? If that's what you mean, I was thinking about a challenge like that, where you only use the trio from a particular region. Like Blastoise, Charizard, and Venusaur, or Blaziken, Sceptile, and Swampert. Seems like a cool idea, but I'm piled up with challenges right now so I wouldn't be able to play right away.

        Johto's probably my favorite region to play, but it really can get old when you get to Kanto.

        Platinum is actually okay for me. I am actually getting a little burned out on Unova since I've been playing it so much recently. BW2 is actually much longer than you think, and BW has a postgame requirement that can get old fast as well.

        Kanto is meh right now too since I've only been playing the remakes lately, and the speed button sucks on those games (only 300% vs 500 for RSE & 1000% for RBY).

          This is my order of favorite regions(1 being my most favorite).
          1. Johto
          2. Unova
          3. Hoenn
          4. Kanto
          5. Sinnoh

          It's still good, but I agree it sucks, my speed button speeds are 500%-600% for FRLG and RSE, 4000%-7000% for GSC, and 10000%-80000% for RBGY. Yes, I'm serious, 4 zeros.

            As regions themselves I guess? Because I'd choose BW2-Unova over BW-Unova (I don't know, I just don't like... having to grind to beat Alder) and then move on with Johto (only johto part), Hoenn, Kanto and finally Sinnoh.
            Sinnoh story is just so slow, not to mention all the HM's and backtracking you need to do between gyms. (Although I did play HG/SS without a flyer once... oh god...)


            Would the starter only challenge be region based? Or would you be able to mix and match?
            Mainly just curious, because I'm not too fond of the derpy fire lizard (that will never be dragon type and is 4x weak to rock...) Just personal thing. I used a trio of starters + Pikachu and Togepi once in a playthrough of HeartGold and the only ones that I eventually tried to avoid using were Charizard and Raichu (well Volt Tackling myself to Death a few times was amusing...). Everyone did get to level 60 or so, just... didn't do Red eventually, because I kept missing out on Diamond Dust weather.

              How about reviving the word themed challenge? You would randomize a word, and that would be the theme for your team. I would add an option to choose the word yourself though, for more varience.
