Welcome to the 719 802 Challenge
Original challenge and rules made by Matzeho1996 back in 2014

Rules:
1. Challengers have to use teams made by Fully Evolved Pokemon in chronological order... The goal of this challenge is to use every Pokemon from Venusaur to Marshadow
If you aren't sure what Pokemon are next, use this for help...
2. Your team must consist minimal of 3 Pokemon
3. You are allowed to skip 1 Pokemon
4. If you skip 1 Pokemon the next challenger HAS to use that Pokemon
5. You can decide the game you want to play, but keep in mind that if all of the Kanto Pokemon have been used that you can't play R/B/Y anymore and so on...
6. Not Fully Evolved Pokemon like Golbat and Scyther in R/B/Y count as Fully evolved in their generation (That means, both Golbat and Crobat will be use during challenge). Alolan Pokemon can be used instead of their normal conterparts
7. Pokemon with no evolutions like Farfetch'd and Lapras count as Fully Evolved
8. Shinys and HMs slaves are allowed. If you get a Shiny you can swap that Shiny Pokemon with a Pokemon from your team.
9. You might need to hack your rom or trade with friends to get your pokemon, so trading and hacking is allowed.
10. Megas and Z-Moves are allowed
11. Legendaries do count! Event only legendaries are optional
12. Challenge ends when you reach Hall of Fame for the 1st time


Hopefully we can use all 802 Pokemon!

Examples for few first teams:

              I have been playing it a ridiculous amount...

              Trainer Eto
              Spoiler:

              Named our rival Grey
              Went and got our starter... and lemme tell you, trying to take out a charmander with a bellsprout's vine whip is hard. I think we might have found it easier if Falaffel'd had like... one more point in HP.
              Introducing:
              Falaffel, bellsprout line

              We also had to raise to like. level 15. to beat him in the second battle near Viridian.
              Were level 16 when we took out Brock, that was cake-walk. Boulder Badge obtained.
              Got to Mt.Moon and caught a geodude
              Introducing:
              Hot Pocket, geodude line

              Got through, training a bit, took on Grey in the third rival battle with Hot Pocket level 22 and Falaffel level 23 (and evolved into a weepinbel)
              Proceeded north, to get ourself an abra
              Introducing:
              Soda Pop, abra line

              more training, did the Bill thing, went south to Vermilion, more training, evolved Soda Pop into kadabra. Caught a few meowth for pickup (Mo, Po, and Go)
              Took out the SS.Anne to get cut (taught to Po), fought Grey in fourth rival battle with
              Falaffel lv 31, Hot Pocket lv 31, Soda Pop lv 31

              Then returned north to get Cascade badge using Soda Pop (would have used Hot Pocket, but a lv31 geodude's just not got the speed and sp.defence to deal with a starmie's water pulse)

              Headed off towards Rock Tunnel (after catching a bunch of pokemon to get Flash from the Aide and teaching that to Po too), progressed through, then went to get ourself a growlithe
              Introducing:
              Cereal, growlithe line

              Trained, got tea for the gate guards, finally went to flush Team Rocket out of the Game Corner.
              Came up against Giovanni with everyone level 36.
              Beat him.
              Proceeded back to Lavender for the fifth rival battle, team still all level 36.
              Climbed the tower, and with another level Soda Pop evolved into alakazam, then noticed when Hot Pocket hit level 37 and didn't evolve into graveller (kept a geodude to get earthquake at level 36) that we'd forgotten to take the everstone we gave him.
              Took it and he evolved into graveller with a bit more ghost-punching.

              Finished dealing with the Tower, booted out Team Rocket, headed south.
              We just reached the end of the bridge area when Hot Pocket gained a level and evolved into golem.

              After obtaining both rods, we fished about and eventually caught a poliwag just north of Vermilion
              Introducing:
              Toast, poliwag line

              Training training training, nothing overly interesting going on, taught Toast Hidden Power (an Ice HP) and Secret Power to have some decent moves, Toast eventually evolved into poliwhirl. Taught Toast Surf.
              More training.
              Evolved Toast into poliwrath at level 40.
              More training- finally evolved Falaffel into a victreebel at level 42 once we got razor leaf to overwrite vine whip.
              Training towards level 50, evolved Cereal at level 49 because Flamethrower.

              Took on Koga's gym with Hot Pocket, who got to level 52 from level 50 doing it.
              Claimed the Soul Badge.

              Finally got tentacool with new ability to surf, then deposited Hot Pocket (due to the two levels gained in the gym) to keep Po in the party while we trained the new teammember.
              Introducing:
              Tiramisu, tentacool line

              And then it turned out the Tiramisu's a pyromaniac when we overwrote constrict with Hidden Power.
              Training, with usage of Amulet Coin to also farm money in case we want to buy a TM or item from the Game Corner.
              Tiramisu evolved into tentacool.
              Continue training


              Team:

              Falaffel
              Victreebel, F, lv50, Chlorophyll, -
              Razor leaf, growth, acid, sleep powder
              - remarkably accurate with the sleep powder

              Hot Pocket
              Golem, M, lv52, Rock head, -
              Rock blast, defence curl, earthquake, rollout
              - tank

              Soda Pop
              Alakazam, M, lv50, Inner focus, -
              Psybeam, recover, reflect, psychic
              - quite good at confusing things, but maybe we should replace recover, since we never really use it

              Cereal
              Arcanine, F, lv51, Flash fire, Blackglasses
              Flamethrower, odor sleuth, bite, flame wheel
              - we intend to get around to replacing odor sleuth with sunny day

              Toast
              Poliwrath, M, lv50, Water absorb, quick claw
              Surf, hypnosis, brick break, body slam
              - we basically never use this hypnosis, possibly we need to put a different move there

              Tiramisu
              Tentacruel, F, lv49, Clear body, Amulet coin
              Acid, HP Fire, bubblebeam, barrier
              - the HP Fire has been very useful.

              Badges:
              Boulder, Cascade, Soul

                Quick update on my Leaf Green run!

                - Caught Rattata on Route 1 and grinded up to lv. 9
                - Beat rival, Viridian Forest, etc.
                - Reached Pewter City and Rattata was at Lv. 14; managed to beat Brock with a tail whip and then spam hyper fang
                - Ventured through part of Route 3 dodging trainers whenever I could
                - Caught Zubat, Jigglypuff, Clefairy, and Paras, started grinding and fighting trainers
                - Went through Mt. Moon and Route 3/4 and hit Cerulean City.

                    Update on my Leaf Green 802 Challenge - I'm nearing the end!

                    - Cleared out all of the routes leading to Fuchsia City for some experience
                    - Defeated the Rockets in Silph Co and then Sabrina, the Fighting Dojo, and Koga
                    - And now, I get to deal with not having a team member who can use Surf! Left Ninetales in the box for the surf over to Cinnabar, with my starter Squirtle as a replacement
                    - Had a bit of trouble with Blaine and Fire Blast, had it down to Golbat and Parasect at the end. I've almost always had a water or rock type around to deal with him.
                    - Went and cleared the islands 1-3 for fun
                    - Ventured to Viridian and am getting ready to take on Giovanni!

                    Team:
                    Parasect/45: Bullet Seed/Slash/Spore/Leech Life
                    Raticate/45: Strength/Quick Attack/Dig/Super Fang
                    Golbat/45: Air Cutter/Bite/Confuse Ray/Steel Wing
                    Ninetales/45: Flamethrower/Will-O-Wisp/Confuse Ray/Quick Attack
                    Clefable/47: Calm Mind/Psychic/Ice Beam/Thunderbolt
                    Wigglytuff/46: Water Pulse/Body Slam/Rollout/Brick Break

                    EDIT: I've reached the end of the challenge! Giovanni didn't pose too much of an issue, but the Elite Four were... pretty painful at best. Lack of a water type seriously made things difficult. Also, my set of Pokemon wasn't the strongest and they definitely didn't have level advantage. Quick reflection on each pokemon below:

                    Parasect: Spore/Giga Drain/Leech Life/Slash - He's just a bit too slow, though his ability to use Spore is nice. Can't really get a good bug move in this generation.
                    Wigglytuff: Brick Break/Rollout/Water Pulse/Body Slam - Would typically perform a function (special attacker) that Clefable performed this time around, but yeah... This thing isn't a great attacker, unfortunately.
                    Clefable: Calm Mind/Thunderbolt/Ice Beam/Psychic - Clefable performed pretty well and had pretty wide type coverage. A bit fragile.
                    Golbat: Poison Fang/Air Cutter/Confuse Ray/Steel Wing - I enjoyed using Golbat, actually - it has speed and some decent hitting moves, and can cause status problems. Might turn to using a Crobat more often.
                    Ninetales: Flamethrower/Confuse Ray/Will-o-Wisp/Quick Attack - Ninetales really doesn't have a great moveset; it also had very low special attack during this run, making it even a bit more limited.
                    Raticate: Strength/Shadow Ball/Quick Attack/Dig - Raticate is, well, fast and has decent attack for in-game. It was also a bit fragile but usually was able to get Quick Attack in for the win after taking a hit.

                    Great challenge; hope we can get to 802!

                      And then we stopped playing a ridiculous amount for a bit to do some other stuff

                      Trainer Eto
                      Spoiler:

                      Travelled around to Cinnabar Island, went rooting through the Mansion, then opened the gym with the key.
                      Fought the gym with Cereal- lv52- and got the Volcano badge.

                      Swapped team around so Cereal was in the box so as to have Po and Toast and their HM moves when we did Bill's Sevii island quest, which was handled easily enough, then returned to Kanto.
                      Decided to do Sabrina's gym next so as to be able to use Rock Smash to get the other items that were at the islands- thus we had to take on Silph Co.

                      Frankly, I'm not sure how people get lost in there (especially if they aren't interested in fighting the trainers (?? I don't get that at all. Free training)), but we hunted down all the Rocket members for money and EXP.
                      Fought Grey with Toast, Soda Pop, and Tiramisu level 53, and Hot Pocket, Falaffel, and Cereal at level 54.
                      Soda Pop got a level for annihilating his kadabra.
                      Took out Giovanni.

                      Set a level 54 Toast on Sabrina's Gym (I would have sworn there were exeggcute in here. Looking at bulbapedia, apparently our brain is remembering the GSC/HGSS gym rosters) and got the Marsh badge.

                      Taught the Silph Co. gift lapras strength, surf, and rock smash, then went and got the items from Sevii.

                      Went 'hmm' and decided to get Erika's badge for the ability to use Strength. Set a level 53 Tiramisu on the grass gym, which was hilarious because HP Fire, and got both level 54 and the Rainbow Badge.

                      Took out Lt. Surge with Falaffel- lv.54- for the Thunder Badge.

                      Went and bought some stuff from the Game Corner.

                      Headed over to Viridian to take on Giovanni, using multiple pokemon to take out the trainers, then taking out Giovanni's team with Cereal to get her to level 55.

                      Gonna head to Victory Path next, though we fee like we could do better in the items department.
                      ... Remembered Leftovers exist and went to get those (why are there so few good items, you can't even get to King's Rock until after the League...)


                      Team:

                      Falaffel
                      Victreebel, F, lv55, Chlorophyll, Miracle seed
                      Razor leaf, growth, acid, sleep powder
                      - remarkably accurate with the sleep powder

                      Hot Pocket
                      Golem, M, lv55, Rock head, Leftovers
                      Rock blast, defense curl, earthquake, rollout
                      - tank

                      Soda Pop
                      Alakazam, M, lv56, Inner focus, Leftovers
                      Psybeam, recover, reflect, psychic
                      - quite good at confusing things, but maybe we should replace recover, since we never really use it
                      - maybe we should teach him shadow ball or something
                      - the leftovers might make recover even more useless than it already was

                      Cereal
                      Arcanine, F, lv55, Flash fire, Blackglasses
                      Flamethrower, odor sleuth, bite, flame wheel
                      - we still intend to get around to replacing odor sleuth with sunny day

                      Toast
                      Poliwrath, M, lv55, Water absorb, quick claw
                      Surf, hypnosis, brick break, body slam
                      - we basically never use this hypnosis, possibly we need to put a different move there
                      - considering replacing hypnosis with ice beam

                      Tiramisu
                      Tentacruel, F, lv55, Clear body, Charcoal
                      Acid, HP Fire, bubblebeam, barrier
                      - the HP Fire has been very useful.

                      Badges:
                      Boulder, Cascade, Soul, Volcano, Marsh, Rainbow, Thunder, Earth

                      I'm glad that you all keep this challenge alive. I have exams until end of the June, so I'll join you all right after I have them.

                        Someone explain why they thought it was a good idea to a) have a distinct sparsity of good held items, b) have basically the only good poison attack's TM available AFTER the league. Toxic's nice, but it's not an attack attack.

                        Trainer Eto
                        Spoiler:

                        We glanced at the levels and decided to grind. Ground up to 65 and took on Rival Grey.
                        Taught Sunny Day, Ice Beam, and Shadow Ball TMs
                        OUr lineup for vs his team is
                        Toast vs his Pidgeot -
                        Falaffel vs charizard - sleep powder for win
                        Soda Pop vs alakazam
                        Cereal vs gyarados
                        Hot Pocket vs rhyhorn
                        Tiramisu vs exeggutor - all hail the Fire HP

                        Proceeded through Victory Path with its magic, teleporting boulders.

                        Decided to grind more, to level 70.

                        Just used assorted and random to get through the E4.

                        Poked ahead at Grey, reloaded after a few, and taught Falaffel Attract (because Charizard's fire blast could OHKO her, and her acid attack wouldn't do enough damage to take it out without 2-3 crits before it woke up and fire-blasted)
                        Toast vs his Pidgeot - easy
                        Falaffel vs charizard - Sleep powder to stop it attacking, attract to cut the chances of it attacking, then acid. This worked Spectacuarly. When it woke up it proceeded to either miss the fire blast or be infatuated.
                        Soda Pop vs alakazam - a lot of messing around- trying to do it so a) there was no Future Sight set up on our next pokemon and set up Barrier
                        Cereal vs gyarados - sunny day and then bite its face
                        Hot Pocket vs rhyhorn - Earthquake x 2
                        Tiramisu vs exeggutor - FIRE! FIIIIREEEEE!

                        And then we went to the islands to finally get our hands on things like the Sludge Bomb TM.


                        League Team:

                        Falaffel
                        Victreebel, F, lv70, Chlorophyll, Miracle seed
                        Razor leaf, attract, acid, sleep powder
                        - we replaced growth with attract to fight our rival and found out after that growth is a pre-evo only move... (she has swords dance now instead, which is fine, I guess, because a) she has higher attack anyway, and b) poison attacks are all physical this gen)

                        Hot Pocket
                        Golem, M, lv70, Rock head, Leftovers
                        Rock blast, double-edge, earthquake, rollout
                        - Double-edge is primarily to make use of his ability, so that it's not completely wasted.

                        Soda Pop
                        Alakazam, M, lv70, Inner focus, Leftovers
                        Psybeam, shadow ball, reflect, psychic
                        - he is surprisingly good at taking physical hits given that he's an alakazam

                        Cereal
                        Arcanine, F, lv70, Flash fire, Blackglasses
                        Flamethrower, sunny day, bite, flame wheel

                        Toast
                        Poliwrath, M, lv70, Water absorb, quick claw
                        Surf, ice beam, brick break, body slam
                        - he wasn't made to use non-stab special moves, but it's fine

                        Tiramisu
                        Tentacruel, F, lv70, Clear body, Charcoal
                        Acid, HP Fire, bubblebeam, barrier
                        - the HP Fire remains very useful.

                            This looks like an awesome challenge! The fact that it is a forum-wide challenge is such a creative idea. Just one suggestion: It would be useful to have the next pokemon (or at least its pokedex entry number) to be picked listed in the OP. Also, perhaps move the skipped pokemon outside of a spoiler. As we get further down the list of pokemon, both of these changes will save people more and more time that would otherwise be spend sifting through challengers/champions to figure out how far we've progressed.

                                    Thanks for approving me. I'm so excited to jump into this challenge!

                                    Here's my progress:

                                    Spoiler:
                                    Part 1
                                    -Applied for my team (Machamp, Rapidash, Slowbro, Magneton, Dodrio, Dewgong). I'm very happy with this team. Dewgong was my ace back Gen 1. Magneton was my MVP on a recent Leaf Green replay. And Machoke was my first shiny Pokemon.
                                    -Caught/bred all my babies in Pearl. If we're taking the fight to Red, I want to get a good jumpstart with that boosted exp. I also didn't want to farm 67,000 or so Pokewalker watts to get half my team.
                                    -Named my dudes based on songs that were popular in the year that corresponds to their Dex Number. Machop is named Jude. Ponyta is named Fever. Slowpoke is named Brick. Doduo is named Go-Go. Magnemite is named 867-5309. And Seel is named La Bamba.
                                    -Fired up Heart Gold. Chose Totodile as my temporary Pokemon, until I could trade in the real team.
                                    -Finished the tutorial phase and traded in my team.
                                    -Fever and Brick were too high level, so they couldn't be used until after the first gym.
                                    -Go-Go dominated in the Sprout tower. Peck was a one-shot on almost everything here.
                                    -867 learned Thundershock in Sprout Tower. Needless to say, it wrecked Falkner's gym.
                                    -Brick finally got to put in some work in the Union Cave. I also picked up the TM for Rock Tomb and taught it to Jude.
                                    -Slowpoke well was good EXP, so my team had finally caught up to Fever at lv 14.
                                    -Fever made her debut in the Azalea gym, but she was lacking fire type moves, for the moment.
                                    -Bugsy led with Scyther, and I led with Go-Go. Scyther used focus energy for the first turn. Go-Go scored a critical peck, but it wasn't enough. Scyther followed up with a critical quick attack to knock out Go-Go. Jude came in and squashed it with a rock tomb. From there, I just had to let La Bamba clean up the two cocoons.

                                    Current Team:
                                    Fever
