    What about a challenge that involves on using pokemon related to your Zodiac sign? I have also heard that there are different zodiacs so using one pokemon from each of your zodiac.

    That's been suggested many time, and I think there is a thread for it.

    There's still a thread for it? I know we've had one, but I haven't seen it in forever so I thought it died off or something. Hm.

    And wasn't someone else working on that challenge anyway? They haven't posted it yet I don't think...not that I remember. So if anything, it's currently in the works.

    I do remember some one working on that, yes. They discovered new Zodiacs most people don't know about so they had to add them.

      Yes, I have been working on the challenge, and it is actually finished. I posted it to the subreddit, but not here because I couldn't find the time to participate in it.

      Though if someone wishes to post the topic, I can easily send you the picture.

      Thanks guys, for forgetting me already.

        Done both that challenge and one where you can only use Pokemon that are weak to the Gym type. I like this one better.

        Hey guys, I have a question for all of you. What game do you guys find better for challenges, BW or BW2? I am unsure of which one would be best, and I'm curious to see what everyone else believes. General speed in which one could complete the game, given typical end requirements of the games, is pretty important in my decision.

        imo, BW2 is much superior to BW1. In addition, most challenges require you beat Alder in BW1, meaning lots of tedious grinding, but BW2 standard is the first fight against Iris.

        BW2 has much more Pokemon and it's a more difficult game, plus challenge mode. If I had a free BW2 file, I'd be using those games more often for challenges instead of BW.

          Sorry for no responses, I was really busy last few days. I'm currently doing a mono flying challenge on Black 2, but I have to release my highest level after every 2 gyms :p. I traded in my whole team in the beginning, while I solo'd Cheren with a Pidove, which is now boxed. I had to release either Archen or Woobat after Roxie, so I chose for Woobat, since I have another psychic type in Sigilyph.

          :)

          It's no big deal if you don't post for a few days. Lots of us sometimes have no time for it. So no need to apologize, we're not going anywhere! :D

          Interestingly enough, BW seems to be faster though, since the first half goes by so quick, although I guess BW2 would go faster if you use the Lucky Egg and skip some trainers. Usually for me they end up about the same (ending and Alder/first Iris fight).

          I will say that BW2 isn't worth playing unless you use challenge mode though.

          Challenge mode is certainly a worthwhile addition. I just wish it wasn't limited to Black version to unlock. I mean, seriously, who's gonna use an Easy mode AFTER you beat the game. Come on Game Freak.

            Not to mention that the mode unlocks vanish if you start a new save. =/ and only ones who can share the Challenge modes are the Black2 users. (Even if you'd have both modes on a W2 save it will only send over the easy mode.)

                Yeah, my friend is working on a Fan Game, and this is one of the Fakemon I concocted for it. They're Fire/Psychic Pokemon, Pyrokinetic was the concept (Something that Victini really wasn't...) They are intended to be the opposite of the Ralts Family, in that they're more masculine, with a female split evolution.

                    I think they look pretty good too. And that is a lot from me considering I hate most fakemon.

                      OK, I hope I'm in the right place when talking about challenge ideas, but I've just thought of a new one.

                      I'd call this the "Lightweight Challenge" since this is all about lightweight Pokemon. The objective is to beat the game using Pokemon that are lighter than say for example 15kg (or 33lbs). If we want an optional challenge, then we can say that any HM Slaves can only be used under the weight restriction.

                      I hope this is an interesting idea.

                      It sound familiar, idk.

                      It's not a bad idea though, you could also extend it to be that you can only use a pokémon in certain weight range, to give people more options in the sort of Pokémon.

                      Yup, I'm certain we've had something like that once. I'd extend it as well though, or have different weight classes to pick from instead of just lightweight. I mean, the monocolor challenge lets you pick more than one color. There's not a thread for blue and a separate for brown. Just an example, of course.
