Name: Phantomness
Game: Pokemon Red

My birthday is in June, so the team consists of:
Seaking
Shellder (will evolve to Cloyster)
Charizard
Magneton (my gray Pokemon)
And something on Route 6, opting not to pick a second fire Pokemon.

Name: gummybuns
Game: Pokemon 3d (fan game, but plays almost exactly like hgss plus has almost every pokemon up to gen 6)
Pokemon Team: Butterfree, Raticate, Bulbasaur, Glaceon, Umbreon, (first pokemon I find on route 1)


I have a quick question regarding the challenge, for the 3rd pokemon in your team, I got bulbasaur and im playing a gen 2 game, so there is no way I can get a Bulbasaur, ... what should I do? I forgot to add, that since its a fangame there is no way I can trade for it.

Because the first three are directly calculable, I wrote a small program to look for cases where you'd get three of the same Pokemon. Some of the more interesting ones I found:

If you're born on January 3rd, 2005 and are playing RSE or ORAS, you're required to use three Swamperts.

If you were born on October 20th, 2010 and playing Gen II games, you have to use three Cleffa. I'm so sorry.

June 24th, 1966 gets you three Happiny if you're playing DPPt.

Ok let me see if I have this straight
This is confusing me

Spoiler:

My birthday is 12/03/98

1. Take the day you were born, and add it to the month and the last two digits of the year.
12+3=15
98+3=101


2. Take the day you were born and multiply it by the Generation* of game you are playing.
3*3=9

3. Take the month you were born in and multiply it by the Generation* of the game you are playing, squared.
98*3=264
2642=
86436 <--- what the hell? I have to divide this in half 9 times before I get something that is in Emerald. [86436/2=43218 43218/2=21609 21609/2=10804.5 10804.5/2=5402.25 5402.25/2=2701.125 2701.125/2=1350.5625 1350.5625/2=675.28125 675.28125/2=337.640625 337.640625/2=168.8203125 168.8203125≈169] I feel like I'm not supposed to have to do that.
OR
98*32=98*9=882 882/2=441 441/2=220.5 220.5
≈221 <---- Still feels like I shouldn't have to divide it that many times

Am I doing something wrong on this step? I read it two different ways and got two different choices.

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.
December

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.
December

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

12 <--- Route 12 isn't in Emerald, what do I do?

I'm just a huge dunce when it comes to reading rules, so all of this is confusing me too much. I'd love to do the challenge, so please help me understand

So I have somehow managed to beat the elite four in one go only 3 srs and that was the psychic e4. And now I am grinding for N fight. I need my last pokemon and forgot that I can't get eevee until after I beat the game so can I ask for a different Pokemon this one will be Hydreigon?

Step 1. 3+12+98= 113 in Hoenn Regional Dex

Step 2. 3*3=9 in Regional Dex

Step 3. 12 * (3*3) = 108 in Regional Dex

Step 4. Choose an ice type

Step 5. Choose a Pokemon with the color black

Step 6. First Pokemon you find on ROute 112 is th only Pokemon you may try catching, don't catch, you're out of luck and will roll with 5 Pokemon instead

Thats how to do the challenge

Oooooooh I like the idea behind this challenge! I will be giving this one a try.

Name: Rin_K-Rogue
Game: Emerald
Pokemon Team: My DOB is July 10th '96 so that gives me:
1. Sandslash
2. Kirlia (I will be choosing to evolve it)
3. Zubat (Again, I will be evolving it)
4. Magcargo
5. Going by Dex Colour, Armaldo is Grey, so I will be picking Armaldo
6. Route 107

I am very happy with this team. Alot of good mons here. When I catch the Ralts, I will have to use my starter to switch train it to level 6, seeing as it will only know growl upon capture.

I'm a wannabe Pokemon master.
