Because you literally have to plan out who gets what move, know where there are extras of that TM, etc. Now it's like. YOU get Earthquake, YOU get Earthquake, the WHOLE TEAM shakin the ground here.

I am like...in the Diglett Tunnel in UltraMoon? And just can't be assed to go further? I used to enjoy playing challenges on the most recent game because I would have more variety for my team, but lol I can't even play through newer games normally. I don't have enough drive or time to put myself into another challenge. I still boot up older games from time to time to see where I stopped in the middle of a challenge, though. RIP to those.
I agree with TM part, but for competitive battles I think it's better that you have "infinite" uses of one TM.

But I found myself mostly thinking about doing some challenge, but never actually start it. So right now, I focus on one challenge at time.

    Tyrantrum and Beheeyem were level 1 Tyrunt and Elgyem, the Armaldo was a level 20 Anorith and Starmie was already fully evolved. Can't remember the other two. It was fun to level up the low level ones but I kept ending up with some of my team a higher level than my badges so it added to the challenge. Especially in the large gaps between badges such as between Wattson and Flannery.

    The main reason I did it was I always liked the idea of giving Wonder Trade fodder a new lease of life. Those Pokémon people just stick in there in the hope of getting an unfairly good Pokémon in return for their level 3 Pidgey. The second time I did it (on Pokemon Y this time) I made it more of a challenge by sticking strictly to the first 6 I got. This resulted in a team of Furret, Charizard, Vivillon, Noctowl and two Linoones!

      Hi, I moved your post to general discussion. I hope you find someone to play with :)

        Has there ever been an Egglocke monotype challenge? You get a ton of unhatched eggs that are all of Pokémon who have the same type (e.g. Electric type) that someone else breeds. You could hatch one every time you win a major battle. Any that die get boxed or released (shinies get boxed of course).

        There was thread for it, but many people either post it in general Nuzlocke thread now or in Challenge Logs.

          Not quite original enough I guess? Oh well it definitely sounds fun. I think I’ll try it out at some point. I’m considering reviving the Eeveelution Challenge. I thought it was fun and had an ultimate challenge going in challenge logs until I lost my save data (it was a Nuzlocke too). Granted mine was a relay challenge (you keep the same Pokémon you start off with through multiple games. You just reset it to level 1 each game).

          I was thinking about doing Egglocke too, since last one I did was in 2014/2015.

          But Eeveelution was really fun :D If you decide to revive it, I'll probably join in.

          I don't think an Egglocke is "unique" enough to warrant being its own seperate challenge. A lot of the time gimmick challenges don't do well as a separate thread. best to just stick to the original then say you're implementing some different rules.

          Yeah, for some reason Egglocke isn't that much popular, but I think it's still known more that let's say Chesslocke XD

            It's Nuzlocke variant inspired by Chess. You can catch up to 16 Pokémon. One is consider King, one Queen, two Bishops, two Knights, two Rooks, and eight Pawns. I'm don't remember whole rules, but each Pokémon could only use limited number of moves determinated by how you can move the chess piece in real game - Bishop can move in 2 directions, so Pokémon that became Bishop can only use 2 moves. The pawn can't evolve, but if it solos major battle it can be promoted to other role. If King faints, it's game over...

            Now that I remembered it, I feel like trying it again :D

              Sounds like a challenge for sure. I would probably make a Pawn have a move like Outrage or Snowball/Rollout. If it can only use one move at least make it something that hits hard. You won’t be able to switch out though...
