Yeah, Ground does sound pretty good. And don't get me wrong, I do want to do Fighting in Hoenn, lots of cool fighting types, but I would rather only do one game per type at a time. Black is really nice for Fighting, because you can get more than half your team before the 2nd gym, and one of them is your starter.

      So I decided to base my challenge off of April Fools. Though I need a way to make the challenge be possible in every gen.

        How long have you not been the OP of the Solo Challenge? Apparently its been way too long since I was here.

          Not too long, but it happens, the owners gradually get lazy and threads go to good homes with OPs that will love them and update them all the time.

          I spent two days not progressing in my challenge and hunting for Feebas. Ugh, can't believe I actually have to get him >.<

          I had a whole week to make progress on challenges, and that didn't happen. :( I did more in my regular playthrough of Black 2 than anything. I did get to Opelucid though in White 2...and in White...I...beat Bianca and that was it. Someone just doesn't wanna do Chargestone Cave! All my games are like...really close. They're almost all in the same place. lol :(

          I know that feel, Syd, both my black and black 2 are at desert resort, which I really, really don't want to do. And my white 2 is in nimbasa city, so I'm in much the Se boat as you when it comes to Unova. -_-

          The Time Warp Challenge now features 4 new Eras <3

          I had an entire day to do challenges but spent it on css tutorials and giving a facelift to all the challenges I'm running o.o

          I honestly hope the old owner of the time warp challenge doesn't get mad at me taking over .-. or even want it back >.< I enjoy running it and I'd have a hard time parting with it >.<

          though I'm not sure where previous owners stand regarding their old challenges o.O can they get them back if the current owner's actively tending to them? x.x

          P.S. I'm sorry Emerald Players doing Renaissance have to get through the getting a Milotic struggle T-T I'm open to suggestions regarding another Pokémon for that Era .-.


          BTW, Honeyman, I never got to thank you in person for the Egyptian Era suggestion back when I took over the Challenge o.o I did add your name to the Special Thanks section though o.o

            I read that, and I was like "They took my suggestion... I don't know if I should feel honoured or upset I wasn't credited". Though thanks for crediting me.

            Edit: I got another era idea. Ancient China. It could mostly be based off of Ninjas and Samurais.

            Someone suggested Feudal Japan which is close to what you're suggesting now xD Ninjas and Samurais were in Japan, not China btw xD
            And hey, I added you to the special thanks list the moment I added Egyptian Era to the challenge xD

            I hope I'll see you doing the time warp challenge again xD this time, all your questions will get answers xD

            I don't think she minds, Kagami. I follow her on Twitter and asked her there about it and never got a reply so eh. She was pretty popular here though. Won a category or two in the Challenges MOTY voting...like Most Creative challenges I think?

            Also, I updated Gender Discrimination to be for all games and not just HGSS now! Well, no RBY because no genders, but yeah. I hope more people will sign up for it now that it's more open.

            Hooray! I wrote two of the new eras, and am about to do one more that I call The Pirate Golden Age. Definitely a cool option.

            I reckon an April Fool's Day Challenge would be cool

            like, find 6 posts of yours, and the Pokemon you are are the ones you train and complete the challenge with.
            Of course it would take longer than a day, but eh

                  Don't worry Claydol, even a silly ground type like you should know you can beat Marshall by grinding like mad! (But seriously, good luck!) Also I'm scared to start the fish event if magikarp is the only mon I can use up until after Norman. D:

                  Don't worry, Shiny Mr Mime, you don't have to use Magikarp. It's Goldeen/Seaking that you'll have to use. Despite not liking it at first, using only 1 pokemon for like half the gyms wasn't that bad. And people really need to stop underestimating Seaking o.o Mine rocked with its peck and flail and horn attack o.o he now knows waterfall (by level up yo&) and Surf and I'm now fishing for new members for my 1 pokemon and 2 hm slaves team.

                    Oh yeah Primeape's right, Koffing- get that Goldeen once you hit Dewford and get the Old Rod. That'll see you through! Well, if Wattson doesn't get you. :|
