    Introduction

    Hello one and all and welcome to the Date of Birth Challenge! The premise is simple, your DOB dictates your team members, this may result in some very interesting combinations! Here's how it works:

    1. Take the day you were born, and add it to the month and the last two digits of the year.

    2. Take the day you were born and multiply it by the Generation* of game you are playing.

    3. Take the month you were born in and multiply it by the Generation* of the game you are playing, squared.

    4.
    - a)If you were born in December, January or February, select an Ice type of your choice.
    - b)If you were born in March, April or May, select a Grass type of your choice.
    - c)If you were born in June, July or August, select a Fire type of your choice.
    - d)If you were born in September, October or November, select a Rock type of your choice.

    5.
    - a)If you were born in December, January or February, select a Black Pokemon of your choice.
    - b)If you were born in March, April or May, select a Yellow Pokemon of your choice.
    - c)If you were born in June, July or August, select a Gray Pokemon of your choice.
    - d)If you were born in September, October or November, select a Purple Pokemon of your choice.

    6. The first Pokemon found on the route that corresponds to the month you were born in.

    *Remakes are counted as the original Generation they were released in, e.g. FR/LG are Gen 1

    For the first three Pokemon picking rules, take the resultant number, and the Pokemon you get is the Pokemon that corresponds to that number in the Regional Dex of your selected game. If the number exceeds the number of Pokemon in your Regional Dex of choice, simply half it, and if necessary, round up up to the nearest number to obtain your Pokemon! As I understand this can all be a bit confusing, I have provided an example below.
    Spoiler:

    This will also be my sign up! Now, I was born on the 24th of December 1994, so, since I have chosen to play Ruby as my game (3rd Gen as I'm sure we all know) I would get:

    1. 12+24+94=130, which in the Hoenn Dex is Crawdaunt.
    2. 24x3=72, giving me Aggron
    3. 12x3x3=108, giving me Koffing
    4. Since I was born in December, an Ice type of my choice, Walrein!
    5. Again, December means Black, so I pick Houndoom.
    6. I get to catch the first Pokemon I find on Route 112, since in Hoenn there is no Route 12, this also goes for Sinnoh, where it would become Route 212.


    For those playing Gen 6 games, since the Regional Dex has been split into three parts, it will work a little differently for you! Each of the first three Rules will apply to a different part of the Kalos Dex, but you can choose which Rule for which part. An example, for Rule 1, my resultant number is 130, which would give me Pinsir in the Coastal Dex, Aromatisse in the Central Dex, or Sudowoodo in the Mountain Dex, and it is my choice which one I take. BUT, each Dex must be used, you cannot take two from the same Dex, all three must correspond to a Rule. Again, this can be confusing, so feel free to message me with any queries!


    Rules

    1.
    Your team must be chosen using the above method.
    2. You may use HM slaves if necessary, but they must not take part in battles.
    3. Legendaries ARE allowed.
    4. If you receive a NFE Pokemon, you can choose to evolve it if you so desire. If your Pokemon only evolves through trading, you may trade it to evolve, or use a programme to do it for you.
    5. If one or more of your Pokemon are unobtainable in the game you have selected, you may hack/trade them in at a low level at the start of the game. The hacked in Pokemon must be legal, meaning no RNG abuse/illegal moves or abilities.

    6. You may use your starter Pokemon until you catch your first Pokemon, but as soon as your first Pokemon is caught, the starter must be boxed/released. If your first Pokemon is not available before the third gym, then you may hack/trade one of your Pokemon at a low level.
    7. Emulators and speed up are allowed, but no cheating!
    8. Hacked games are allowed, such as Blaze Black or FireRed Omega, as long as they fit into the category of a generation (i.e. No Fakemon, must have a Regional Dex).
    9. Just to clear up the confusion surrounding the sixth Pokemon 6, think of it like a Nuzlocke, the first Pokemon you find on the Route corresponding to the month of your DOB is the one you may catch. If you fail to catch it, you're running with five Pokemon. And, if you're playing Gen 2 or one of the remakes (e.g. Gold, Silver, Crystal, SoulSilver, HeartGold) then you must wait until Kanto to catch your last Pokemon!

    The challenge is complete when you beat:
    R/B/Y/FR/LG: Blue (Your Rival)
    G/S/C/HG/SS: Red (At Mt Silver)
    R/S: Steven
    E: Wallace
    D/P/Pt: Cynthia
    B/W: Alder
    B2/W2: Iris
    X/Y: AZ


    Please confirm your Pokemon teams on sign up! (With the exception of Pokemon 6 of course, but the route number must be confirmed and this Pokemon should be confirmed once it has been caught)

    Here is a sign up sheet:

        This is an interesting idea, but I have a question: What about the starter? Do you continue to use that until you get your first Pokemon on your list, then go with that alone?

          If you can catch your first Pokemon before the third gym, then just play with your starter until you catch it, and then box the starter. If, on the other hand, it is unobtainable before the third gym, it can be hacked/traded in at a low level to "replace" your starter. I will just update the rules now to make it clearer!

            I'll definately do this one then, with Sapphire. I think I might have the toughest challenge yet, with Wingull for the first 2 gyms. I will post videos of this as well under spoiler tags.

                2) 17th, Gen IV = 17x4=68, so Machamp
                3) December = 12x4x4=192, so Sunflora
                4) December = Ice-type, so Glaceon

                6) December = First Pokemon found on Route 212, so I'll wait and see what that one is

                      Sounds cool, definitely joining!

                      One question though:
                      Spoiler:
                      If it's entertaining enough, I will do this challenge for each generation, but it will all be on hacks such as FireRed Omega or StormSilver where you can get every Pokémon from previous generations. Since the in-game Pokédex on those games are national from the beginning, does that mean I'll have to count from the national dex each time? That would give me the same Pokémon every time on slot 1-2. It would be better if I counted depending on generation, so even if I played a Gen 3 hack, I'd go from the regional dex from Gen 3.

                      Name: Chevitile
                      Game: FireRed Omega
                      Team:
                      Spoiler:

                      1. 3 + 18 + 97 = 118, giving me Goldeen -> Seaking.
                      2. 18 x 1 = 18, giving me Pidgeot.
                      3. 3 x 1 x 1 = 3, giving me Blastoise.
                      4. I was born in March, so I'm picking Breloom.
                      5. I get to pick a yellow Pokémon, and my choice is Ninetales.
                      6. First encounter on Route 3.

                      Hopefully I did the math right...

                                Unfortunately, no. You have to think of rule six kind of like a Nuzlocke, it's the first Pokemon or nothing. You can however, choose not to have six Pokemon and just stick with the five by not catching the first Pokemon on Route 7.

                                    Edit: So, I found out there are no real encounters on Route 106, unless I use a fishing rod, or surf. Is it okay to use the fishing rod to get the Pokemon on Route 106?

                                              Hello one and all and welcome to the Date of Birth Challenge! The premise is simple, your DOB dictates your team members, this may result in some very interesting combinations! Here's how it works:

                                              1. Take the day you were born, and add it to the month and the last two digits of the year.

                                              2. Take the day you were born and multiply it by the Generation of game you are playing.

                                              3. Take the month you were born in and multiply it by the Generation of the game you are playing, squared.

                                              4.
                                              - a)If you were born in December, January or February, select an Ice type of your choice.
                                              - b)If you were born in March, April or May, select a Grass type of your choice.
                                              - c)If you were born in June, July or August, select a Fire type of your choice.
                                              - d)If you were born in September, October or November, select a Rock type of your choice.

                                              5.
                                              - a)If you were born in December, January or February, select a Black Pokemon of your choice.
                                              - b)If you were born in March, April or May, select a Yellow Pokemon of your choice.
                                              - c)If you were born in June, July or August, select a Gray Pokemon of your choice.
                                              - d)If you were born in September, October or November, select a Purple Pokemon of your choice.

                                              6. The first Pokemon found on the route that corresponds to the month you were born in.

                                              For the first three Pokemon picking rules, take the resultant number, and the Pokemon you get is the Pokemon that corresponds to that number in the Regional Dex of your selected game. If the number exceeds the number of Pokemon in your Regional Dex of choice, simply half it, and if necessary, round up up to the nearest number to obtain your Pokemon! As I understand this can all be a bit confusing, I have provided an example below.



                                              There are some problems with the Pokemon choosing process. I plan on attempting this on Gold/Silver. Below should be my team, based on your specifications.

                                              1. January 3rd, 1995. 1+3+95=99. #99 is Kingler.
                                              2. Gold/Silver is Gen. 2. 3x2= 6. #6 is Charizard.
                                              3. 1x2^2= 4. #4 is Charmander. *See something here?*
                                              4. Piloswine.
                                              5. Umbreon.
                                              6. Route 1 isn't available in Gold/Silver until the Kanto Region.

                                              My concerns here are: What do I do about the whole 'Charizard/Charmander' deal? It seems kind of unnecessary to have two Charizards in my team. Also, because route 1 isn't available until later in the game, does this mean I have to roll with only five Pokemon until that point, or what do I do?

                                              Once my questions are answered, I would gladly like to make my sign up. This is a very interesting challenge though.

                                                OH what the hecky, I've got time to kill before October 12th. It was either this or do a Dunsparce-only run of HG, which, as hilarious as that sounds, would probably kill me.

                                                I was born on July 8th, 1990 (7/8/90 wut wut), and I will be adding some much-needed Gen 2 love to this challenge, and rocking HeartGold on the actual cart, so no hacks or anything.

                                                1. Exeggcute
                                                2. Fearow
                                                3. Poliwag
                                                4. Typhlosion (hell yes get to keep my favorite starter)
                                                5. Aron/Lairon (both are in the Johto Safari Zone, and I'll just go by whichever one I manage to catch first)
                                                6. First Pokemon I catch on route 7, and I'm hoping to get a Shinx there.

                                                Excited to do this! While I love Gen 2, I had lost interest in my copy of HG.
