    Here's an idea for a run I've had that I wanted to get going. It's basically a way to run through multiple regions with a "family lineage" of pokemon. It does require you to use and complete multiple games, so keep that in mind.

    Rules:
    1. Start a game as you usually would and become the champion. You may make any team swaps you wish in the first game. Howver, the team that enters the Hall of Fame will serve as the start of your family trees.
    2. You must enter the Hall of Fame with a team of 6.
    3. Only one genderless Pokemon may be allowed and it cannot be legendary or mythical.
    4. Upon becoming champion, you must breed all 6 Pokemon from your party. If two Pokemon in your party are compatible, they must be bred with each other. Everyone else may be bred with captured “wild” Pokemon. If any are bred together, you may catch new Pokémon to fill those empty slots in either the previous or the subsequent game.
    5. Trade or transfer the offspring to a new region/game and start a new adventure.
    6. You must complete the game with this team, no substitutions may be made. If you do not have 6 offspring (due to parental pairings) you may capture wild Pokemon to fill those slots.
    7. Upon clearing the Elite 4, begin the same breeding process again, and transfer to another region. (If playing HG/SS, beating Red is NOT a requirement, but that is up to the player)
    8. The challenge is complete upon becoming the champion of region 3 with your chosen lineages.
    9. HM slaves are allowed, but only if a party member cannot learn said move. Those slaves may not be used for gym leader or elite 4 battles.

    (This is not a strict rule, but it's suggested that, when you find a pokemon that you want on your team, you catch the first gender of it that you encounter...just to shake things up in future runs. Also, it's not necessary to breed the pokemon in the game/gen they were caught in...just so long as they're bred before being transfered to the next main game...this will really only come into play if vying for certain egg moves or Alolan forms...It's completely up to you and your enjoyment!)

    Ultimate version:
    Do the above rules through every region using either the order below, or any official order that takes you through every region (ant Unova twice, including both B/W and B2/W2).

    Order:

    FR/LG->HG/SS->D/P/Plt->B/w->B2/W2->OR/AS->XY->S/M/US/UM

    I’ve begun the full challenge using FireRed. Ive got a Squirtle and Spearow so far and have beaten Brock. I will update my progress. Have fun!

      I have now ventured to Mt. Moon and captured a Paras to add to my team (female). Also, I forgot to mention that my Squirtle is a male, and my Spearow is a female.

          I like the idea of this, I will combine it with my Fire Red Random team challenge.

          The Elite 4 has been defeated



          The winning team:
          Spoiler:


          Cutthroat ♂ Lv. 54

          - Megahorn
          - Earthquake

          I just need to catch 30 or so more pokemon to unlock the breeding day care.
          Machamp and Alakazam will be bred together, which means I will lose the Alakazam.
          The rest will be bread with another mate.
          Once they are all hatched I will transfer them to Heart Gold.

            Stage 2 of my legacy challenge.

            Hatched all the pokemon in Fire Red and have transferred them into Heart Gold.

            I'm assuming because I have an empty slot I am able to fill it with another Mon? If not Mareep will be boxed.

            Did all the starting stuff and defeated Falkner.
            I then found a Mareep who has joined my party.

              Nice! Glad you’re having fun! On my end, I’ve been busy and have just started back up. Paras, Squirtle, and Spearow have all evolved and I caught a Dugtrio. I’ve beaten Surge and am headed to Rock Tunnel.

                Update: I’ve defeated Erika and taken care of Team Rocket in the Game Corner and Pokemon Tower. Wartortle evolved into Blastoise and I’ve added two new team members: Onix and Jolteon (both male). I boxed Dugtrio...I intended to trade him for a Lickitung for dex purposes...only to realize that in FireRed the kid wants a Golduck for his Lickitung...(For some reason I was thinking of Yellow...even though upon looking it up I realized that trade is a Lickitung FOR a Dugtrio...) oh well. Anyway, I’ve now begun the trial to capture my final teamate...Kangaskhan. That means the common thread for all future teams will be a Kangaskhan since they’re a female only species. I’ve made 4 attempts in the Safari Zone to catch one but so far no luck. Gotta love the Safari Zone...sigh...

                    Been a bit since I've done an update. I bred all of my team, transferred them over to HeartGold. I bred Blastoise and Kangaskhan together, but the rest of my team were bred with wild pokemon. Onix was bred with a female of his species and given a metal coat so I could finally have a Steelix this run through. Parasect was bred with a Venonat to get Psybeam, and I bred Fearow with a Doduo to get Tri Attack. That left me a slot open, so I captured a Gastly in Sprout Tower. Funnily enough, a majority of my team is now male so that should lead to good variety when I head off to Sinnoh. At this point, I've beaten the first 3 gyms and am about to leave Goldenrod and heads towards the National Park to take care of that pesky Sudowoodo blocking up the joint. Here's my team so far:

                      Haven’t updated in awhile, so here we go. I’ve gotten all 8 Johto badges and am headed to Victory Road. I am contemplating trying to get the Thunderbolt TM for Spectra...but that’s a lot of Voltorb Flip...I’ll update the roster shortly
