I think by the end I had a Swampert and a Torkoal, since that was my phase of using a totally awesome Grass-Fire-Water core team. It was only a Swampert, Torkoal and Tropius, but I loved it anyway. <3

    So there has been some distressing news with me though. I've had to delete everything off my computer because of a dumb virus which affected my name, so I pretty much deleted my entire profile on the computer, which means I've lost everything, including my challenges run on Emulators, namely my Nuzlocke and Body. I've still got my Solo challenge on a cartridge, so I'm gonna try and get that done as well soon. :D I'm also gonna wait for a new computer before I do any more challenges on an emulator.

    Which I probably should mention, I've been itching to start Soulsilver again for a challenge, any ideas on which one I should partake in? :)
    Omg that sucks same thing just happened to me and to my Nuzelocke and Chess Challenge, but at least I wasn't too far.

    Maybe you should do the Rainbow one D:

    I was at Lavaridge Town for my Nuzlocke, but good thing I wasn't too far in my Body challenge. I'm not gonna do those again for a while anyway. :/

            No Sydian you're not allowed.

            Rule #1 of Challenge: Only the cool kids allowed.

              Here's a nice challenge I thought of while in the midst of thinking to myself, reminding me of the rules of a Nuzlocke. How about a challenge where you can only catch one Pokemon per encounter method? So like, grass, caves, surfing, fishing, shaking spots, swirling dust etc. You can only use one Pokemon through each method. I think that'd be pretty fun. :D

              I would be clear on the rules though, like your starter would count as a gift Pokemon, whereas egg would also count as a gift, if it's the Togepi egg or Happiny or whatever. :3

                  The encounter rate thing is kinda new, but I remember a guy starting a thread where he wanted the challenge to be all the Pokemon on your team must be from an event or a gift, and he was pretty much shot down by everyone because everyone who'd compete would almost have the same team :o

                  I really wanna have a challenge where the people playing are against each other and it's a race to be in first place and if you accomplish certain things you get to trade and steal party members from your competitiors and such

                  but I just can't think it through

                  That would actually be quite difficult to pull off, since not everyone uses the actual cartridges to do challenges, and not everyone has wifi either. I mean I do, but you have to think about everyone else, not just yourself. :)

                  Actually, now that I think about it, I remember a challenge back maybe in 2009 or something for Emerald I think, where people would play one cartridge and pass it around to every person to do certain parts. In this example though one person would start a game, and you would have so many people and they would go through every section. So maybe one person could go from the beginning to get the badge in Rustboro City, and they would hand over the file so they can play the game until they get the Dewford badge. You could make it a Nuzlocke or anything like that. :3

                      I tried to make something like that. Here's how it worked.

                      Actually, it was almost exactly the same as the Challenge Royale that we're doing. But there were no teams, it was sort of like competitive battling i think (I've never done that). You just sort of say "hey you, lets race" and then you race and then everyone is happy but the loser because he lost and isn't happy.

                      Yeah, that was really cool. I've thought about doing a team challenge like that, to where you have like 4 people on each team.

                        I really can't be bothered doing any huge challenges like that right now tbh. I gotta find everything, and then get an emulator and get the proper games etc to use and I can do a challenge. :)

                        But as you know me, I came up with another challenge, again. I would call it the Ability Precipice/Threshold/Uhh... Brink challenge. Pretty much you choose however many abilities as you want in the game and you have to use Pokemon which fit the description of those abilities, so they don't have to necessarily have the abilities themselves. For instance, you could use the Sturdy, which would be that your Pokemon must be able to learn 2 One-hit KO moves via level and must know at least one of them. Or something like Illuminate would be that you have to use a Pokemon which can learn Flash.

                          I know I've already said this

                          but the perfect, but yet, simple, challenge for Alternative to partake in:

                          Rainbow Road ~ Contributed by Alternative
                          Monocolor is always fun, but how about a nice array? Only catch is one per color and in order.

                          Rules: In this challenge you must have a team of 6 Pokemon, and each 1 must be a different color to represent all 6 colors of the rainbow. (Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). The must also be caught in order. You must have your red Pokemon by the 2nd gym, (if your starter isn't red you may use it for help up to the 2nd gym. Even if it meets the future color criteria you may not use it again as it isn't a catchable Pokemon). You must have 3 pokemon by the 4th badge, and 6 by the 7th. NFEs are allowed, and no legends. ALSO all 6 pokemon on your team must be caught with a different pokeball, so no 2 pokemon on your team can live in the same ball (unless you're playing R/B/Y or FR/LG for you may use 2 pokeballs, 2 great balls, 1 ultra ball, 1 masterball).


                          Doesn't that one sound familiar? It's your child and it's saying

                          "Please mommy/daddy alternative why did you abandon me in the cold orphanage that is Laure's house, she beats me with whips and feeds me maggots on moldy toast"

                          well that's way pout of proportion of what I meant of how you should play the challenge. When I said in order I meant you have to catch it in order of when you started. FOr instace, if you stat with blue, then you have to catch a Purple, the a Red, orange and so on. :)

                            ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I thought you had to start on Red

                            one day I will edit it


                            one day

                            *watches the Earth die as she sips on her coffee remembering the last time she said she'd edit something in that thread it took a week*

                            Anyway I feel a fool, I had the idea for a point based challenge before I knew what royal was ;_;
                            and Idk I don't like the race thing because for people like me one day I'll have all the time in the world to play Pokemon, and then next thing I know many days go by

                            Here is an idea, a whole group plays against one another
                            they can play no more than 1 hour a day on their game
                            no speed button
                            to ensure no one is just racing to the elite 4 points will be given
                            like maybe +1 for every Pokemon added to your Pokedex +5 for every item you receive from talking to people or something like that

                            and then what you can do with your points is go to the Laure store where you can buy various items like items that force an opponent of your choosing to release a Pokemon that was a part of their team, seal a Pokemon's move or evolution. I guess there could also be revival items for yourself, you could also make allies or enemies by being able to help someone out by giving them spare points, in hopes they don't screw you over later

                            Idk I keep trying to come up with a challenge version of a PO tournament I use to host that we named after the Hunger Games. Every arena day two tributes are picked to battle each other they win points they lose points, give points to their friends, use items to help/hurt each other, and every arena day I roll the dice and if I got a 6 the person with the lowest number wasn't allowed to play anymore :D

                            That won't work for a challenge but I'm trying to think of something fun

                              Something close to the idea has been thought of before. Not much came of it, but I still have it saved in a folder on my lappy. Its actually a combination of two ideas. One was the "Stock Market League" where you play, and every day or so the OP posts in a thread saying "Anyone who has a Grass Type gets a point" or something similar to that. The other challenge is hard to explain, but it was to take over a long period of time, and the goal was to get to like 10,000 points to "buy arceus". Every trainer you beat and every item you sold netted you some money. Every Pokemon you evolved, every item you bought, every time you lost, or if you wanted to "buy" a Pokemon, that lost you money. Once you beat the game, you wouldn't be able to afford Arceus from the start, so you would have to buy a weaker Pokemon and start the game over with that Pokemon. Make sense?

                                Bleh that's kinda super tedious, I wouldn't give points for every thing, just the little things to do so you have to make wise choices on how to use your one hour

                                But might not happen because you'd need a lot of active people and ass I found out from the egg salad challenge people will be super excited posting all the time, and then bam, never hear from them again
