    ^ Well if you're not gonna make a psoriasis challenge than I will. You're gonna be sooo jealous when everyone sign's up for it.

    After that I will do a diabetes challenge where you can only use food pokemon.

    Lastly, I will do a flatulence challenge, you may only use pokemon like Weezing and Skuntank. They must use poison gas.

    btw...please no one steal my ideas, they are brilliant, pure and simple! :p

        oooh~ those do look interesting.

        How long do the events usually last? or does it vary? I'm imagining just around 1 week, like the get-together...

        The events on the Challenge forum usually last till the end of the month, the G-T events only last a week since that's how long the G-T lasts.

        Sydian, please have emblems for actually completing the challenge this time, I feel a little let down when the only emblem is just participatory, sometimes it doesn't motivate me to finish. You could have both?

        Disease challenges ftw?

          Makes sense, considering how challenges could take a load of time.

          Anyway, add a bit more into Fenneking's ideas (like a "medic" challenge, where all your pokemon must have at least 1 hp/status-effect healing move), and he could create some challenge with a "hospital" setting... now that truly would be an interesting compilation I'd want to see. @[email protected]

          I'd rather not. I don't see the point. The emblems used to be completion only, but they're more of "if I see you making effort, you can have it." Plus, not enough people were completing them and the emblems weren't getting used to the fullest. I think you're putting way too much stock into it if you think it should be more than one anyway. Having two for one small event seems silly, and if you don't have the motivation to complete the challenge, that's your own beef really. Besides, this challenge in particular will have something special for people that complete it.

          And yes, MOTY is posted at the end of the year. Voting occurs throughout the entire month of December.

            I had a idea for a challenge just cant be bothered to do it myself at this point. it is a twist on the average nuzlocke where your Pokemon "age" after 3 hours of being in your party (boxing them stops the timer but it doesn't reset) they die from exhaustion, this will keep your teams fresh and also reduce the amount of time that can be spent on grinding.

              Seems like a good optional rule for the already existing Nuzlocke to me. Also you might want to tweak the time, Nuzlockes are beatable in less than 3 hours.

              Why do I always come back here when it's about Nuzlockes? But that is a good optional rule, yeah. If enough people want to use it, I'll add it to the opening post. (I need to update that thread too at some point).

              I gotta say, editing someone else's challenge feels strange. I tried to leave it the same, though I had to remove one rule since I didn't think it'd fit in well with the everyone version. This was a challenge made by AlexOzzyCake for me as a Christmas present. It's gonna be gooood. :) Just a little more tweaking and it should be ready for August 1st! My time, btw. lol

                I was trying to remember today why I was looking more forward to tomorrow and now I remember that it was because it's going to be the start of the event challenge haha. Looking forward to what it is! Though changes are I'll need to charge my phone before I can start participating whoops.

                I'm actually looking forward to your challenge but at the same time, I'm not. Because August 1st means school is approaching ;~;

                I don't wanna hear you guys complain! I have a class to finish, work, my 21st birthday, band camp, and full time school starting. If I survive, you'll survive. :P

                I don't mind work since I got 2 jobs, which are fun (for me anyways ) 21st birthday? That shouldn't be so bad, my birthday is on August too :3
                Band camp? Sounds like fun. All those stuffs you mentionned sounds like fun except for school and class
