    The old thread was specifically for HGSS and their trainer classes around the time it came out, so it's old and locked. So yes, you can definitely revive this challenge and incorporate your idea (I like the idea of the tier system, just not exclusivity to Plasma). If you want less to manage, you can make the challenge for 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation (since the 3rd and 4th generation has the remakes), or just a specific generation and narrow down/combine a few classes (like, combining bug catcher/maniac with aroma lady, just have the combos make sense, lol) that may only use one type.

    I wouldn't stick steadfast to just confining yourself to one trainer class. That would be too samey for some challengers since there's not a ton of variety in the Pokemon Plasma uses. It would be like the Eevolution challenge (where the player would have a team of eevolutions). There's only Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Leafeon, Glaceon, Espeon, and Umbreon. With 8 choices, it's inevitable that some people will have similar or the same teams. That would be a boring thread to read.

    And considering that next month is All Hallows Eve, it will most likely be a Halloween Challenge. Sydian's pretty much in charge of the larger scale challenges that usually corresponds to holidays (see my sig. one was St. Patrick's). They usually come with prizes (emblems for you profile), and they usually have a time limit (to the end of the month we're celebrating).

    @Syd, maybe you're playing it for the nostalgia of Kanto but don't want the 8bit graphics? :pink_giggle:

    Edit: I found patches of the following:
    Red with Dark and Steel types
    Gold & Silver that adds the Safari Zone w/ version exclusives (They couldn't add Safari zone in Crystal, so instead, they added the version exclusives of Gold/Silver back in their original routes.)

    May I say: sweet!

    Now I just need to find a non-Viet version of a translated Japanese Crystal.
    Well thank you :3

    And I hadn't planned to use just Team Plasma, that was just my example.
    Hint: reread everything in that post ;3
    Well, I might consider making that challenge then.
    Holloween Challenge sounds... interesting. Perhaps it would have something to do with a Ghost/Dark type challenge/theme/something?

    @Shea Man - Sounds interesting but... well, I don't know if I'd make that :S Who knows? Maybe.

      I have to admit, just thinking about a halloween challenge makes me excited. So many possibilities, probably soemthing like nakuzami said, dark and ghost types.

        I'm itching to get the Halloween challenge started also, guys! I'm hoping you'll like the way the teams have to be set up. It took me a while to think of it too, lol. I will give you a spoiler though, but only since you've already guessed it...you are required to use a Ghost-type. Which is great for me, because I love Ghosts.

          Ghosts are pretty awesome, especially in gen v with the likes of chandelure and jellicent. A question about the challenge. Would it be on Black and white or an older game?

          Ohh looks like I came at the right time. Maybe a challenge where all Pokemon have to be ghost, dark types or have to be in the monster or amorphous egg groups.

          I haven't being doing many challenges recently. I did get some of my Nuzlocke done in history however because my teacher said we could go on our laptops why he tried to get a documentary to play, it took him 45 minutes. Also I must beat Syd in my Hall of Fame Challenge.

            So... I'm back on PC. So I guessed I'd join the Seed Bby madness and Nuzlocking Insanity also known as the Challenge forums once again~

            Heh, random idea inspired by something I'm trying to do on PF.

            The Other Thing Challenge (tentative name). You have to go through the game with Pokémon that you think are quite similiar to characters from your favourite anime/TV Show/book series/whatever. You can use your starter until you get a Pokémon that fits the criteria, but once you get it, your starter must be boxed/released. Oh yeah, you must try to get that Pokémon as soon as possible. (so if one of your mons is a Pikachu, search Viridian Forest until you find one instead of just skipping the forest like just another forest)

            If I did start this, I think I'd do it on Diamond or something with Kidou Piplup->Empoleon as my starter, Endou Pichu->Raichu and Gouenji Growlithe->Arcanine (yay alliteration) being good some backup mons. And an useless Megane Magikarp for the box.

            Unlike previous events, the Halloween challenge will be for all main games. :) Though I highly suggest not using anything older than RSE, otherwise your choices are going to be terrible.

            I think there's already one like this? But I can't quite put my finger on the name of it, lol. But it's around somewhere, I'm sure.

            Syd, that would be the Character Challenge. Not sure if it's still alive or not, but I've seen it.
            EDIT: Just checked, it's still alive. Last post was September 20th.

              You still like Seed Bbys, huh, Syd? No surprise, considering how much you liked them back then~

              I guess I'll check out the charrie challenge, then :3

                hey guys well this is an idea of a challenge and i wana know what you guys think of it

                it is a challenge which consists of 6 different leagues:
                leagues 1-5 are: 1- kanto, 2-johto, 3-hoenn, 4-sinnoh, and 5-unova
                these five leagues will consist of you building a team with pokemon only from that region
                e.g kanto team - blastoise, pidgeot, vileplume, raichu, arcanine and alakazam
                johto team - typhlosion, tyranitar, politoed, sunflora, steelix and togetic
                and so one for each region.
                for the sixth region you can use any pokemon from any region in your team.

                how this would work is by on your game your using e.g. pokemon black you would use the team from the league
                your participating in say kanto them you can hack in or trade the pokemon for your team.
                and you would battle and train up to the first gym leader beat him/her and then you would save your game
                (don't carry on with the game)
                as you would go onto wifi and battle a gym leader for the challenge (one of our gym leaders)
                and then once you have beaten the gym leader you may continue on with your game until you have beaten the 2nd and 3rd
                and so on, and beat our gym leaders.

                the gym leaders for that region will only use on type for that gym
                they will put up their team and the level on the challenge thread thats about it
                also they can have 3 different typed teams of their choice from that region to use.
                the battles would be as followed gym leaders 1- 4 3 vs 3 battles
                gym leaders 5 - 7 4 vs 4 battles
                gym leader 8 5 vs 5
                elite four and champion 6 vs 6 battle

                for gym leaders if you fail to beat them you can go back to the area before the gym leader battle in your game and train
                (you CANNOT go further than the gym to train)

                their pokemon will be similar levels to the gym leaders, elite four and champion from that region
                also a prize would be given out for each person who beats a region.
                and also people would be needed to be gym leaders, elite four and champions

                sooo.. that's all i got soo far guys n girls so what you think?

                      It would be really helpful if some other people joined Rivals Challenge,
                      So it's not just us 3

                          I'm also doing one with a fire mono.
                          I had an idea,
                          Why dont we have a challenge where you only use pokemon with a base stat total of 450> but you can have one poke that is 450<?

                            yeah that would be a good challenge, just any type or would you limit one type or more, something like that?

                                    Uhhh, you guys realize you could have had that whole conversation via VM right? Anyway, I'm probably going to finish Challoween tonight. Then I think I won't be restarting Black for a long time. Going to leave it alone and use it as my transfer game for when I start working on the Pokedex in my Jap White (can't transfer from English to Jap, so Black will be the bridge between them). Then my English White can be my challenge cart. :3c Still need to make the emblem. ~_~

                                    I'm actually enjoying the Challoween challenge. :3c I thought that it would be super hard because I had Squirtle. Don't ask. :< But he's quite the powerhouse. :D

                                    I need to limit the challenges I do, last time I just took a load and forget them all. ;;
