    Swablu~<3

    She's like a Swab, that's blue :D

    I'd be up for the Minecraft project, but I don't have the game, and if I recall correctly you must 'pay to play'?

      Its not as bad as you think actually. I just built all of Viridian City in about a day. The hardest part is if you have to build a city or something, and it happens to be over an ocean. Building things in mountains isn't bad, because you can TNT your way to victory. (We're hacking in the stuff, because that's a whole bunch of stuff to not be hacking in...)

      It sorta gets easier as you go, because you sort of learn how the buildings look and stuff.

        I'm gonna write my next update, which is for when I fight Elesa. After that, don't expect any huge updates from me, where I detail everything. I'm now trying to get through the game as fast as I can, so I can do other things (breeding etc.).

        Are you saying that you're afraid of a little challenge? I expected more from you. And it wouldn't be that everyone has to find every single move on their own, but it would be a project, where we work together to try and get all the moves on those Smeargle!
        I'm already barely interested in the challenges I'm doing right now, plus I have classes starting next month (what happened to summer? -sigh-) and hopefully a job soon and I have other sections and ahh! -eats chocolate-

        That being said, I'm trying to run and hurry up with Ruby. I've got 5 badges and I'm underlevel cause I just haven't felt like level grinding. D; Bleh. /drained

        I'd say just try to take some challenges slow if I were you. I mean, with my Red challenge (body), I'm not playing it all the time, but I'm making slow progress. I have a Gloom on there now, which is nice. :)

          Bad: My grandfather has died a few days ago :(, so i'm going 3 days to Holland for his funeral

          That's too bad about your grandfather, jespoke. I hope you feel better about him soon. But it's good for the Minecraft thing. I wouldn't mind helping out on the Kanto thing, if I had a decent-ish computer.

          Anyway, my favourites challenge is going well. I trained Pinkie Pie in Twist Mountain, which was good. I spent two days abusing Audino, and I now have the ice badge whatever you call it. I'm hoping for a team around the level 50~ mark before I fight Drayden, and hopefully Espresso evolves soon. :)


          Another thing which has nothing to do with my current challenge, but how about a new challenge (gee, that's new). I was thinking something along the lines of similar to the preparation of the favourites challenge, yet similar to the random Pokemon challenge. What you would do, is using a random Pokemon generator, or if you can be bothered thinking of it yourself, create a list of I'd say about 20-30 Pokemon, and then someone else chooses between 4-6 random numbers from there, and that person has to use the Pokemon listed in that order. So if you had in your list say, Sawsbuck, Flareon and Lairon in that order, and someone game you the number two, then you'd have to use a Flareon on your team.

          Does that make sense?

            I'm glad another one of my Swablus have come back to the nest. I think that'll be the code name for challengers now. Swablu...because I said something to InfernoRogue about being under my wing and she thought of Mantine and Remoraid, but then I wanted to be fluffy or something so then I thought of Altaria and Swablu lmao.

            I'm a busy Swablu. D: I have only a little bit of school left, but we still somehow have projects and stuff. Hopefully, I'll be able to play Colosseum and XD in time to complete my challenge.

            I'm not as busy of a Swablu as the rest of you. I'm hoping to finish my favourites challenge by the end of the week, which includes battling Alder. I'm almost at Opelucid City, which is good, and then I can focus more on the egg moves which I plan to get in my game, and play more of my other challenges. :)

              I am a really not-so-sure (lmao) Swablu. D: After a long long school year I still have my Platinum Favorite going. What should I do ? Drop it ?

              And my SS Nuzlocke... oh yeah... Chuck wiped me out completely. My Lv. 27 awesome team. Now I'm left with a bunch of leftovers. :/

                I'm an in-and-out Swablu.

                I perfected a game (Advance Wars: Days of Ruin), which made me want to perfect more games. I'm almost done with Rumble, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, and I started Lego Harry Potter 1-4. I'm going to finish up LHP and FFCC and then I'll probably be back for good. Rumble is so hard, it might have the best of me.

                I don't wanna be a Swablu. I wanna me more like a Fearow, for Drill Peck or something. :P What's a flying Pokemon without Drill Peck?

                Anyway, from my favourites challenge, I'm taking a break from the actual plot, and visiting all the places, for breeding some egg moves and whatnot, which I wanted to do. I'll be updating soon with my gym leader results, and what's been happening now and stuff soon I guess.

                I notice you only have 5 pokes - aren't you supposed to get a Rhydon in the favs challenge? Where are those, anyway?

                And Swablu is fine, as long as I can evolve into an Altaria...

                I know I've only got five Pokemon, but if you also see, the rules state that the challenge ends when you defeat Alder, so as long as I get the Rhydon before then (which I will), I'm all good to go. :)

                  To be honest, I think I've only ever completed one challenge, and it was the first challenge I ever did; a monotype ground on Pearl. That was such a long time ago, so probably back in 2009 when I did that challenge, before this place was born.

                  Anyway, I thought this might be an idea for a challenge, similar to the Kickin' it Old School challenge. It's similar to that challenge, but you have to use Pokemon purely from another region, so it'd help if you could trade, or hack if you're on an emulator. So if you were playing Sapphire, you'd have to use either all Pokemon introduced in the first, or second generation.

                  I think as soon as school ends, I'll finally be getting back to that personal 151 solo challenge. I'm actually trying to decide whether to do one right now or not, since I've actually gotten some free time. :P
                  Now that I think about it, I have a three day weekend as well, so I may do a few each day. Like, 8 or so, if I work hard enough. 8 Each day.

                    ^ Wow...

                    My reading holiday has started :D In Denmark we have a "reading holiday", with is from end of May to summer holiday, where we only have exams. In other words: A month with only a few schooldays :D

                    I like how we have 5 holidays a year where i live, even though that means a shorter summer holidays (I mean, 6 weeks is still much :P)

                    I've been wanting to think of a new challenge, and as I walked by the trading card section in Target an idea hit me: a challenge where you choose a set of Pokemon cards from here (under Card Scans in the column on the left) and you can only use Pokemon from that set. Some restrictions could be having to have the moves that are on the card on your Pokemon, not using legendaries, using a game from the generation that the set was made, or using only items that are in the set. I'm sure someone could come up with other ideas for restrictions, but I want to see what other people think of this idea.
