    The reason Bank ruins it is the fact that it requires a Nintendo Network account to work. So that may work for me. I'll be in touch. ;)

      Also I wish I could get the free X. ;; I tried to but things didn't work out 100% with the person I was using the 3DS of.
      *whistles*

      I guess I could try to download the extra copy of Y since I have another SD card with 8 GB, but I only have like two of the games eligible for register, and while I have the copies of them on hand, the boxes for both of them (which I would picture might have a code) are at my parents' house. Do I need to just have the game I want to register?

      You also need a copy of one of six games. The game and the 3DS need to be registered on Club Nintendo this month.

      You need the Codes from the boxes.

      All the info can be found here, guys:
      http://club2.nintendo.com/3ds-pokemon-promo/

      I know some people here haven't gotten Pokemon X or Y yet and this could be a good chance to get equipped for more challenges. :)

      I'm on a phone rn so this will be quick, but I got them to mod me in here so new members would know who to go to until there's a mod in here, so there's that. It makes me feel better seeing my name there again lol but UGH you guys I really don't like orange lmao.

      Second! Would anyone be interested in a challenge index? Myrrhman brought it up long ago, but at the time, I didn't see the need, but now that this section is more popular, I think it's time for one. It would have a link to the challenge, a summary of it, and list who runs it. I think it will be helpful, especially for newcomers looking for a challenge, but don't feel like asking us in here haha. I'll probably make it my weekend project. Thoughts, suggestions, etc are all appreciated!

      I actually was thinking about something like that yesterday. There are indexes in some other forums and I think it would help people decide what challenges they should try, and maybe make things a bit less daunting for new players.

      I like the idea of a Challenge index since it will help people see what challenges are active, especially since we have 2 month thread leases in here, and sometimes that means threads go to the bottom and then die because people don't see them.

      Also maybe it will keep people from submitting new Nuzlocke threads? lol.

      Also, I love that Orange Lighting gif.

      Thanks guys! I'll get on it this weekend. And yeah, I was thinking the exact same thing about the nuzlockes, JD. Really hoping it'll help.

      Edit: Also could add previous and future Challenge of the Year winners too, so that that's not forgotten and gives people more incentive to try it. I think there have only been two, but still, good way to keep those recognized, especially as we go forward and we'll have more.

      Ex. Monocolor Challenge: Use a team of Pokemon that fall into the same color category according to the pokedex. Also won Challenge of the Year for 2012. Currently run by jdthebud.

      Something like that but fancier don't worry lol

      Maybe also as challenges die they could be added to a section showing that the challenge is up for grabs for anyone who wants to remake it.

      Yeah, I realize the hardest part will be keepin up woh what dies off because once it's out of sight, it's out of mind too. Usually when things get locked though, people are quick to revive it, so that's a plus.

      Don't worry, I'll be here, new Altaria or not. I'll ensure someone great will take over, and even then, I'll still be around. :) I'm not going anywhere. I helped bring this forum in, after all. It really is my child, haha.

      I have no doubt that we'll be seeing plenty of Syd for a long time. And she's still the mod here right now technically, so no crying yet.

        Dang, I can't get a free copy of Pokemon X or Y. I don't have any of said games

        I would like a challenge index. It would let me know which of the challenges are dead without me having to flip pages to find them.

        Speaking of dead challenges, I have decided to revamp my Mega Evolution Challenge! I recently learned HTML and CSS (very rudimentary, at that, but enough to suffice) through January and February, and I think I'm ready to apply it to here. Also, it's been 5 months since X and Y came out, plus there's this free thing with Club Nintendo, so I think that enough people will have the game now in order for the challenge to have regular posts, at least once a week. Also, since Spring Break is coming up, I couldn't think of a better time to re-release it. Just, uh, forget what I said about taking it down, ok, Jak? Thanks.

        My 3DS should be here soon! I'm so impatient...

        Did I already lock it? I don't remember. I know you wanted me to lock some and I did. If it was long ago though, you're better off starting fresh.

          It was around December-January. Yeah, I planned to start fresh anyways, so you can delete the old one if you want, just let me get the rules first.

          Well I don't delete threads unless they're duplicates, advertisement, or troll threads so you're good to go snatch your rules whenever you're ready. :P
