It proooobably wouldn't be major. I have to read it a bit and let the creative juices flow, but you offered before me, so if you want it, you can take it haha.

Edit: OKAY NEVERMIND it would be almost completely different the way I was gonna do it. Well that shakes that then! lol That one is more in tune with the whole series and the districts and stuff. The one I was planning is more about the actual games and more Nuzlocke-esque than Duotype-esque, like the current one.

Ah, okay haha. Then if no one else feels interested in taling the challenge then I'll take over no problem at all.

Good news everyone! I started rebuilding my collection today by buying a GBA SP and a copy of Silver Version (With working battery that tells time!). So I'll be kicking off my long road of rebuilding with a monotype. What type do you guys think I should do on Silver Version?

Maybe I could make a challenge called "The OTHER Hunger Games Challenge" cause lmfao I still really wanna do this, but going with the existing one would change it into a completely different challenge.

    We have a winner! You want it, you can take it. I feel complete with the one I made myself. Idk, maybe you can make it more popular. But go ahead and change away!

    I think I'll let LilJz take it. n___n I'd rather not rewrite the whole thing. If I decide to post the one I'd like to make, then maybe LilJz and I can work out something to where they have different names so people aren't as confused, since they'd both be based off The Hunger Games haha. But I'd rather not mess up the hard work that was put into the one you made.

      The only high damaging attack I can honestly think of would be Future Sight, and even then you have to wait a few turns for it to hit, so you have to survive being hit while your attack goes through.
      if I would do it, roserade would be my main person because leech seed + toxic + toxic spikes + synthesis + all by level up is just too good to pass off.

        Awesome, sounds like a plan! Guess I need to get myself on an urge to play gen V, since I think that's all I have available to restart haha. We can start discussing whenever I work out the bugs and such with mine and I've got a file cleared up for it and you've got reign of the current one. :>

          fun thing about both is that they're quite predictable for mirror coat and reflect. Now a fight against a poke with magic guard will be a hilarious turn of events.

          anyhow, @Zappaman i'm totally in for that challenge once it's up and done. I can already see my team: one poke with double team-swagger, another with hypnosis-curse-nightmare, one with bide/pain split/d.bond maybe, then a psychic type can go quite cheapo with hypnosis/protect, recover/wish, future sight, and nightmare/toxic... and the poison-seed reflect-mirror thingies mentioned above

          question, though, will bide be accepted for the challenge? Also, if moves like fire spin is allowed, then offensive stat-boosting moves (growth, howl, etc) along with Inferno and Magma Storm must be banned. Another option is, at least for the stat boosting+wrap-like moves' case, both moves can't be found in the same moveset of a single pokemon or wrap-like attacks can't be spammed per turn. I mean, it's gonna kill the essence of the challenge otherwise.

                Obviously, all of us Swablu would panic and die when we realize wr don't recgonize our beloved Altaria anymore.

                Btw, for yhe hunger games challenge, do I have to make a new thread for it since I'll be the one running it?

                  You don't have to. When we're counting them up, we'll know who you're talking about haha. But I guess I should go edit all the challenges I'm signed up in and change my name.

                  Speaking of that, now that name changes are back, I suggest that those of you who are challenge owners add a note that people should post when they get name changes so that it can be changed in the first post. It's kind of surreal...name changes were gone when Challenges was first made, so this is a first for this forum. Kind of neat, really! ...But still an extra hassle, lmao.
