Have you ever played a Pokemon Challenge and thought this?


But you loved the ingenuity behind it and the challenge it used to bring?


Well look no further! I'm here to show you a challenge that I thought up twenty minutes ago! I present to you...


CATMAN'S CHALLENGE CHALLENGE!



Now I bet you're wondering, "Catman! With such a creative name like that, what makes it so special?" Well, I'm glad you asked! What sets it apart is the fact that it's multiple challenges! The one thing that makes my Challenge Challenge so challenging is that every time you obtain a gym badge, the challenge will change completely!


Every time you beat a gym leader and take their badge, the challenge will shift between on of these ten challenges that were posted on this forum*.
  • The Monotype Challenge by Necrum
  • The Monocolor Challenge by jdthebud
  • The Potterlocke Challenge by Etherion
  • The Time Warp Challenge by Ahri
  • The Anime Style Challenge by NotchItUpABit
  • The Zodiac Challenge by Leòmhann teine
  • The Dex Holders Challenge by DyingWillFlareon
  • The Naturelocke Challenge by Mewquazabsol
  • The Tri-Species Challenge by Alex Taylor
  • The Date of Birth Challenge by Bestwaffles

This challenge is not for the faint of heart. One moment, you could easily be demolishing Brock and his team, and then be forced to use only fire-types for Misty! Yeah. This could get tough.

After you obtain a gym badge, randomize the list of challenges above using a random list generator, and the first challenge that appears will be the challenge for that phase!

*The rules and requirements of these challenges will be edited so transitions will be easier. Please click here for more details. The challenges that were posted in this forum that are not on this list could not be easily fitted into this challenge. Cards vary by pack. Batteries not included.


Speaking of rules...

RULES:


1. No matter which challenge you're currently on, the Death Clause will always be in effect. This means that when your precious (and sometimes not so precious) Pokemon is defeated in battle, then it is dead. Gonzo. Kaput. You must box/release it and it may never be taken out again*.

2.Add any extra rules you want! All other clauses and rules are acceptable except for the Nine Lives Clause, because that one's stupid. Other than that, go for it!

*There is a clause (that I made up just now) called the Necromancy Clause. More info on that will be posted when the time is right.


SIGN UP:


Name: Because your identity is no joke.
Game: Where will your adventure take place? (Hacks are allowed)
Extra Clauses and Rules: If you want to add anything else, here's the place to do it.

Spoiler: My Sign Up
Name: Catman
Game: Pokemon White (I seem to play this a lot)
Extra Clauses and Rules: A complete white/blackout means Game Over, the both he Dupes and Shiny Clauses will be active. Also I will be randomizing this challenge. Good luck, Catman.


Challengers:


DarkChibimon / Phase 4
EpicJackman / Phase 4
Kostucha / Phase 4
Enigma / Phase 4
Disclosed / Phase 4
CatmanDaGamer / Phase 3
11wildy / Phase 3
DyingWillFlareon / Phase 2
Ahri / Phase 1
XxHarryxX / Phase 1
Xander729 / Phase 1
Janp / Phase 1
Solar Snivy / Phase 1
Luster Purge / Phase 1


If you made it this far and can still read the word "challenge" without it looking weird, then hats off to you!

To be fair, I'm more than overjoyed my Time Warp made it on the list of 10 and this is a really neat idea :D So here I am in spite of having close to 0 time for challenges atm xD


If you'd like to play with me, you better be sure you know the game.

Well, your Time Warp Challenge is one of the coolest challenges that I've seen here! Glad to have you on board!

I'm going to wait about a day for some more sign ups, then I'll post the next phase. ;)

The challenge looks interesting, but it doesn't seem likely that the Zodiac or DOB challenges will work. They require you to catch specific Pokemon or hack them in if they're unavailable. I don't think those challenges work with Nuzlocke rules in mind.
You won't be forced to catch the entire required team listed in those challenges. Plus, it's just the Death Clause for those challenges. You're not limited to the first Pokémon per route (during those challenges).

Name: Kostucha
Game: Platinum (Randomised)
Extra Clauses and Rules: Nicknaming all pokemon

It sounds interesting. The more I think of it, the more I actually want to try it :).
So should I just start the game now and get the first badge (following normal Nuzlocke rules) or do I need to wait for extra instructions?

In that case, count me signed up! I was just confused, I guess.

Name: EpicJackman
Game: Sapphire (Randomized)
Extra Clauses and Rules:
>If I die, restart from same place but with only captured Pokemon in the "Alive" Box. If my Pokemon left either suck or don't meet the requirements for a section, it's game over.
>Nicknaming
>Dupes clause
>Shiny clause (I always use this, even though it will never happen. I've never even encountered a legit shiny in the wild before :( )

I'm not sure why I still use GPXPlus...

Glad to have you! I like your ruleset. I think I might use it. :)

I didn't think so many people would randomize their games. {XD}
This'll be fun!

Whew, the game is harsh, many pokemon have very powerful moves right at the beginning that paired with common crits resulted in some early deaths :(. I should be more careful from now on. It's really been a while since I played a Nuzlocke challenge. Names are random too (I open a dictionary on a random page and choose random word), too lazy to choose nicknames myself {XD}

Team so far:
Spoiler:

Lash, Relaxed, Shell Armor, lv. 16
-Bubblebeam
-Thunder
-Knock Off
-Take Down

Novel, Jolly, Air Lock, lv. 13
-Poison Fang
-Teeter Dance
-Bulk Up
-Mirror Move

Well, I wasn't as lucky as Kostucha with my playthrough. You know what they say, third time's the charm! Yup, it took me three tries to beat Roxanne. To be fair, the first on was an early death, second one was rash decisions, and I barely survived the third time. I had to result to potion spamming, but I did not want to start a fourth time.

Now when I say "rash decisions," I mean that it slipped my mind I could catch more Pokemon, but on the bright side, now I can save those extra encounters for the next phase of the locke.

Anyway, on to my team:
Spoiler:


This is Siggy my Marshtomp. Honestly, he is a godsend for a third starter. My original starter was Big the Barboach. Next came Dorito the Snorunt. They, of course, perished, and because of my carelessness, Siggy is my only current alive team member.


Next up is my one alive Pokemon who is inferior to Marshtomp in every way:
Spoiler:


This is Speedo the Carvanha. I don't like him at all, but I guess he'd make a decent replacement to Siggy if he ever dies.


And here's my dead box so far:
Spoiler:


This is Gawkula the Golbat. To be blunt, her moves were awful, since she had no Wing Attack, and she couldn't learn Bite until Level 16, the level she died at. Y'see, she died to Roxanne's Zapdos. Basically, I wasn't paying attention to the dialogue and assumed she might be able to take a hit, since she had survived worse I thought. So yeah, I was negligent and let her die.


And as a bonus, here is what almost ended my current run:
Spoiler:


I'll let you guess what Registeel used.

I'm not sure why I still use GPXPlus...

Alrighty then! Welcome aboard. And trust me, you won't be disappointed, DarkChibimon (at least I hop {XD}).

Congratulations to Kostucha and EpicJackman for completing Phase 1! I'll post my progress and the next phase later tonight.

By the way, even if you are on Phase 1 while the thread is on Phase 2, then you are not out of the challenge. Feel free to post and catch up. The same goes for people signing up.

Remind me to update when I get back.
Actually, I can update right now!

I beat Roxanne! Team's looking great so far. Turbo'd my way through the early game. I would be set for the 2nd gym too but, y'know. Challenge'll shift for Phase 2 so you can never be so far.

Screenshots of party / PC:

Spoiler:

(Trainer's Pokemon scored a crit of Eline. Could've prepped for it with a Potion--hell, I actually called that it would happen--but I was peeved that Elina wasn't hitting and got caught up in that.)


So, yeah! Got the easy part out of the way.

Wow, a lot of people signed up! I didn't expect that... {XD} I'll get you guys added in.

Now for my update.
  • I chose Azelf (kind of broken, but whatever). Cheren got Cleffa, and Bianca got Furret.
  • I failed catching a Floatzel. *sigh*
  • N wanted to fight. He had a level 7 Victini. I swear, everytime I randomize this game, N gets a legendary/mythical.
  • Route 2 gave me a Golett. I named it NRG. (Anyone get the reference?)
  • Went to the dreamyard to train. Sadly, NRG died, but I got Pignite as a replacement! I named it Remmy.
  • Bianca battled me afterwards. With an Arceus. Strangely, it wasn't really hard.
  • Owned Cheren with my OP Pokemon
  • Owned Cilan even harder (does that even make sense?).
  • And... I got the TM83, Stun Spore! What a waste of a TM.
Team!
Spoiler:
Azriella (Azelf)
  • Level 15
  • Ability: Minus (What a useless ability)
  • Moves: Sacred Sword, Teleport, Charm

Remmy (Pignite)
  • Level 16
  • Male
  • Ability: Water Absorb
  • Moves: Mist Ball, Sweet Kiss, Astonish, Peck


The Graveyard...
Spoiler:
NRG (Golett)
  • Levels 4-11
  • Ability: Pick Up
  • Moves: Focus Blast, Rest, Iron Tail (With what tail?), Flame Burst


I didn't expect to have such a huge turnout! Well, here's the next phase for the people who are on it!


Drum roll please...
...
...
...
...
...
I'm just saying, after you guys have such great teams, it would be a shame if someone were to... half the maximum amout of Pokemon you're allow to have...


That's right! The next challenge is...

The Tri-Species Challenge!


The rules are pretty self explanatory.

The Tri-Species Challenge is a challenge where you use three Pokemon to complete a game.
So until you obtain your next badge, you are limited to three Pokemon in your party instead of six. Good luck to you all. Don't die...

Spoiler:
Good
luck
you
guys!

Well, it appears that my run this time was flawless in terms of deaths. I did kill a few encounters, but I nabbed some good ones! Other than that, the Gengar I caught won't be useful until Level 21 when it learns Night Shade...

Team:
Spoiler:


Qario the Gengar
Level 18, cis-male


Siggy the Marshtomp
Level 20, cis-male


Fuhrry the Houndour
Level 18, female


The dead box remains with only one death. No new deaths here!

I'm not sure why I still use GPXPlus...

Of course it's not too late! Just continue up to the first badge with the Nuzlocke Challenge rules, then up to the second badge with the Tri-Species Challenge rules. The next phase'll probably be posted either tomorrow or on Thursday or something like that. *shrugs* It all depends on the amount of people waiting for it.

Wow. Kostucha, EpicJackman, and DarkChibimon! You guys work quickly.

Challenge Challenge Update!



Phase 1 and 2 Complete!



Began Randomized Emerald, the choices for starters were Walrein, Mr.Mime, and Sunflora.
I chose Walrein and named her Reina.
As soon as I received Pokeballs, I caught a Kecleon on Route 101. Named her Hidden.
Caught a Donphan on Route 103, named him Tusk.
Caught a Corsola on Route 102, named him Korsolo.
First trainer had a Celebi!
Wally caught a Dratini.
Caught a Metang on Route 104, named it Umlaut.
Caught a Exeggutor in Petalburg Woods, named him Exotic.
Got my first badge! The closest I was to death was due to a selfdestruct-using Weezing, but luckily I had Korsolo out.


Time for the trispecies! Phase 2!
Decided upon using Reina, Tusk, and Umlaut as my three for this phase.
Getting to Dewford was a breeze.
The gym itself was also a breeze, there wasn't anything really threatening inside.
Got my second badge, still no deaths!



Team Stats




Reina (Walrein) ♀ Lv. 19
Powder Snow, Ice Ball, Water Gun, Body Slam


Tusk (Donphan) ♂ Lv. 14
Horn Attack, Odor Sleuth, Growl, Defense Curl


Umlaut (Metang) - Lv. 16
Take Down





It tosses its enemies around with agility. It uses all its limbs to fight in its own unique style.
