    WELL YOU SEE...if I were planning that around MY birthday...you'd all be stuck with MY favorites! :) But Get Together is usually in August, so we'll have to find another way to celebrate my birthday...like...by...making a cake. Or putting graffiti on a wall.
    A Smeargle challenge for syds birthday :P

    Hey now, that's not a bad idea. ;) My original username was SilverSmeargleSplatter anyway...a better challenge would be to give me a shiny Smeargle. :D -shot-

      ...Nah...not really. Someone made a thread about naming their Eeveelutions after the Sages. And I know a few people that have, so...:x

      Has there ever been some sort of challenge where people can only use Pokemon which are separated by version differences? So you would only be allowed to use Pokemon like Volbeat and Illumise, and Whimsicott and those Pokemon.

        While there hasn't been one exclusively for Pokemon that are version exclusive, there has been one called 'The Special Pairs Challenge' which is what you're talking about, with the addition of like Jynx/Magmar/Electabuzz, Weedle/Caterpie, and stuff like that. Some of them can be caught in the same game, they just go together.

        I got sort of bored, so I started making my own catalog for all the challenges we've made ever. I've got the year of challenges in one excel document, a short description of each, and which version we're on. Almost all of the 82 challenges we have are either on version 1 or 2, but then we have Anime, Random, and Mononame at 3, Duo and Monocolor on version 4, Trio on version 6, and Nuzlocke, Unevolved/basic, and Gym Leader on their 7th edition!!! Goodness that's a lot or reviving a thread. The current Gym Leader Challenge hasn't even been posted in since March 30th.

        Anyways, I'm going to organize them into categories now (like themes in a category, groups ((colors, body type, IQ group, etc.)), user assisted ((ones where another user picks part of your team like the scramble, favorite, moveset, etc.)), character based ((Gym Leader, Anime, Evil Team, etc.))) and then possibly post it in a spoiler here. Do you guys think we should make a thread for an index or something? I'm pretty sure it was talked about once or twice, but I forgot what we decided. It could be helpful for people who participated in like a leg of an Ultimate Challenge in one thread, and then sorta forgot about it, only to want to do the challenge the next time that the thread popped up. They could just go to the index, click a link to one of the original threads, and voila! They can now easily copy-paste their progress!

            Mine was mostly NFE too, mainly middle. tbh, I'm surprised I didn't end up with many NFE Pokemon in this run. Only NFE I have is Wartortle, which hey, that's not too bad. It hatched with Blizzard, which I wasn't expecting. XD;

            I should really get around to making a list for that challenge, but only use it for future reference. I'd only really use it for if I want to start my Black game again, and actually do the challenge. My only problem would be using lots of non-Unova Pokemon, which is probably the biggest set back to be doing it. I'd actually consider doing it though. :)

            Could just do the Unova-only version of it. I made that one so that people that can't trade and transfer and such (or just preferred this entirely) had a way to do the challenge. If I did THAT version though, I would probably have a full NFE team.

            I have the ability to trade and everything, I just don't want to stick with just Unova Pokemon. I could probably alter it so that a few Unova Pokemon are in my favourites so I have a higher chance to get more Unova Pokemon.

              But then that's lying about your challenge. If they're not actually your favorites, then you shouldn't have them on the list, right?

                I like the gym leader one that Charmageddon had...and the shinies only XD. The shiny one would take a million years though, unless you were really lucky, really should just hunt for shinies in platinum or something.

                Essentially this. I had a lot of Unova Pokemon on my list, but I ended up with a full team of non-Unova Pokemon. You really just can't control it.

                I have a friend that's actually SRing for a shiny at every chance possible in SoulSilver, and...yeah, that's a lot to SR for. She's even SRing for shiny roamers.

                  Can't you just wait til they're on your route and then SR for them? That doesn't sound any worse than any of the other Pokemon you can find, and with Repels and such, it actually sounds a little easier...

                  I remember when I tried SRing for a shiny. It was back in Pearl, and it was a Rotom. I was trying to SR it for 10 minutes and gave up. I have no patience with these things whatsoever. :P

                  What happened here?

                  No posts for 3 days? I blame the wandering thread, it's taking all the challenge talk.

                  I blame the lazy Karpman for the inactivity here. Anyhow, I've been working on my Sapphire Nuzlocke and will probably post an update or a blog entry with my progress (depends on whether I want +1 post count or not). Also, Electrike should totally evolve at Level 24, it makes much more sense than 26 or whenever he evolves u__u

                  I think I've got four challenges myself going on. My Emerald Nuzlocke, which is postponed ever since March, Ruby Solo, which is in the same boat as Nuzlocke, Body challenge, which has also been postponed, and now the favourites challenge, which I will finish, in due time. :)

                  I've got the Hall of Fame challenge, Favorite challenge, Save the Pokemon on Ruby and Colosseum, and then a Red playthrough (the team was assigned by Penatrait though, so it might as well be a random challenge). Then there's my side projects like Masudaing for a shiny Treecko on Platinum and SRing for a shiny Kyogre on Sapphire. Also, if I don't hit enter in my post, I won't double post. Figured that out. lol Also, speaking of the Hall of Fame challenge, keep an eye out for a blog from me tonight, because I will finish with this awful team. I'm ready for a new team...hopefully one that will flow well together. This ghetto Rain Dance team is just...laughable.

                  Have Pokemon with Cute Charm as an ability. Have a Pokemon that knows Attract, Charm, Rest, and Lick. Have a male Heatran in your team named Larry. Start with the Fire starter. Have a Petilil named Sydian in the team and an Aipom named Klippy. That is all. The Larry Challenge. I should make that rn.
