Hello to all fellow Trainers

and welcome to the one and only

- 50/50 Challenge -


This Challenge is meant to vary your usual gameplay by having half your team being chosen by another member.
This way, you'll be able to use your all-time favorites, but at the same
time you'll have to get used to Pokemon you may have never used before!!

Here is the sign-up sheet:

Name:
Version:
Pokedex: Regional OR National
Number of Pokemon: 2 / 4 /6

My Picks:

After doing this, you may pick half of your Pokemon team yourself and post it.
Now you wait until someone else fills your missing spots with Pokemon of his/her choice.

Here is an example
Spoiler:

Name: A
Version: Black
Pokedex: Regional
Number of Pokemon: 4
My Picks:


B posts: You also get Stoutland and Swoobat! Good luck

Name: B
Version: HeartGold
Pokedex: Regional
Number of Pokemon: 6
My Picks:
Heracross, Houndoom and Kingler


You are basically allowed to do this challenge on any Pokemon Game Version.
Hacks are allowed as long as they feature an existing Region (like VoltWhite, SacredGold...)
You've beaten the Challenge when you enter the hall of fame.
If you play GSC or HG/SS, you need to defeat red to beat the Challenge!!


The Rules

1) Hacking/Cheating is NOT allowed, Unless you can't get any of your Pokemon before
having to challenge the 3rd Gym and its leader.

2) Until you catch your first Pokemon, you may only use your Starter.

3) Legendary Pokemon are NOT allowed!

4) HM Slaves are allowed, but can't actively participate in Battles!!

5) You may hack/cheat ONLY to evolve a Pokemon that need trading.
In this case, the Evolution level should not be below LV 35!!

6) You may use any external source to receive your Pokemon, like trading and the DW.

7) You may specify if you want NFE's or Pokemon of just one type



This is pretty much it, hope you have fun and enjoy your Pokemon!!

Here is my sign-up:

            Hey, so I was wondering if instead of Sawk I could switch it to Throh, or any other pokemon, because in White the only way to get Sawk is through rustling grass and there's only a 5% chance as well. I've been looking for about 40 minutes and all I've gotten are Audino. So I was just wondering if there could be a change in that pokemon choice. Thank you for your time, and have a wonderful day.

            Edit: Well...as soon as I hit enter and this was posted, the very next pokemon to come out of the shaking grass... was Sawk...So I'm good now. Scratch that post....

                                Update One:

                                I'm to lazy to copy and paste all the pictures here, so here is an imgur gallery with descriptions of some important events:

                                http://imgur.com/a/qyByy

                                One question, since I'm using an emulator, I set my Kadabra's evolution to evolve at level 38, just wanna know if that's okay.

                                    Just so it's clear for everyone:
                                    You may change how your Pokemon evolves IF it requires you to trade said Pokemon
                                    Just don't make it too easy, ok? Lv 38 for example seems like a good approach (:

                                    Also: DarkPokeMaster666, Kosuke and Awes@, Welcome to the Challenge!
                                    May the odds be ever in your favor

                                      I knew the rule, just wanted to know if 38 was a fair level
