    I have an idea for a challenge:

    "Ancient Army Challenge"

    Requires a god pokemon (Legendary, must be named after a greek/roman/etc. god.) I.e. A Victini named Apollo.
    Requires a commander. (Starter, fully evoed, All offensive moves.) I.e. Blastoise, Typhlosion, Sceptile, Empoleon, Serperior.
    Requires 2 warriors. (Steel/fighting/rock/normal types.) I.e. Bisharp, Scraggy, Onix, Audino.
    Requires 2 slaves. (Hm Slaves) I.e. Jellicent and Pidgeot.

    Challenge ends when you topple the champion/red.

    "Easter Challenge"

    Consists of 3 pokemon.

    1 Pokemon- Your Bunny. MUST be full-evoed if not a legendary, and must be named E.B. Must be a normal or a fighting type, perfered Chansey. BUNNY MUST KNOW AT LEAST 1 MOVE THAT HAS TO DO WITH EGGS!

    Your 2nd pokemon- Your carrier. Must be defensive, must be your "Tank" of sorts. This pokemon CAN BE A STEEL/ROCK TYPE!

    Your 3rd pokemon- Your "Rudolph" of sorts. Must be named "Rudolph" and must be male. This pokemon MUST have high speed, and can be a flying type.

    You ARE allowed HM Slaves.

    Challenge ends when Carrier becomes level 45, E.B. becomes level 60, and Rudolph becomes level 40.

    Im pumping up the holiday challenges. I shall start with New Years.

    "Celebratory" 1-Day Speed Run Challenge.

    On New Years Eve/Day, beat a pokemon game! Name your character New, and your rival Year.

    "Rose Thorns" Love Hurts Challenge.

    Name your character Rose, doesn't matter if it be male or female, and capture one full team of grass pokemon. Then, take out 1 grass for a steel type, 1 grass for a fighting type, one grass for a rock type, and one grass for a dark type.

    You get a big chunk of hard-to-eat team.

    St. Patty's and Easter were done.

    "Summer of Siera" Challenge.

    Kind of a like a monotype fire run through, only in the summer of B/W, and name your character "Suno".

    "Ring My Bell" School Challenge.

    Name your character the initials of your school, and capture pokemon based on your school colors. Say your school is Dragon Rock High, and your colors are black and brown. So you name your character DRH, and only capture black and brown pokemon. YOU ALSO MUST HAVE A STEEL TYPE OR SOMETHING IN THE SHAPE OF A BELL. IT MUST BE NICKNAMED BELL.

    I think Halloween was already done.

    "Rise of The Birds" Thanksgiving challenge.

    B/W only, name character Pil, and only get flying types.

    "Ho-oh-OW" Christmas Challenge.

    Heartgold Only.
    You must have a Ho-oh on your team. Name it Santa.
    You must have 2 "Reindeer" Speedy pokemon. Name them Rudolph and Reindeer.
    You must have a dragonite on your team. Name it "Mrs. Claus."

    Celebration ends day after New Years.

    Rose Thorns ends Feb. 16.

    Summer ends first day of September.

    Rise of The Birds ends when you get to the northernmost point in the game.

    Ring My Bell ends Last day of September.

    Ho-oh-OW ends when you beat E4.

    Celebration ends day after New Years.

    Rose Thorns ends Feb. 16.

    Summer ends first day of September.

    Rise of The Birds ends when you get to the northernmost point in the game.

    Ring My Bell ends Last day of September.

    Ho-oh-OW ends when you beat E4.

        Hi challengers. :D Hope you all have a good Easter (and if you don't celebrate it, you can got bat **** insane and hunt the eggs on PC like I've been for the past few days!) and good luck in whatever challenges you might be doing. Or have fun in the breaks you're taking. Or don't have fun. That's your choice...

        /doesn't feel like reading that long post rn

        PS: If you are egg hunting, there is an egg in the first post of this thread. :)

        Isn't looking for the eggs around PC a challenge in itself? /zing

        I've been bored lately, apart from preparing my Black Team for a local tournament, I've had nothing to do, Pokemon wise, so I'm thinking of starting up a new challenge for myself. I've got a few options. I could either continue with my Nuzlocke or something kick the shyte outta Dad, resume my solo Shroomish run, or I'm even thinking of starting up a (Fire)Red monotype challenge.

        You c-- ... /me snags avatar and saves it to icon folder where it will probably never be used til like a year later .... --ould just wait til you're actually interested. Or enter the favorite challenge. Yay yay yay. I need to work on that actually. I haven't felt like playing Pokemon since school's been over. I'm doing a "challenge" sorta with Penatrait. We picked each others teams for Red and Blue and we're both playing those right now...but I just beat my rival ONIONS for the second time and he's already in like Cerulean city or something IDEK. But I've been slow. lol

          D: I need to update my stuff now. I'm on Safe Mode on my computer now I need to save my gamefiles from Nuzelocke and Chess and put them on my iphone or something before it's doomed.

          To prevent double posting I will announce that I have 3 badges in my Pokemon Seasons Winter challenge on Platnium version. I think I am going to just catch everything I can in Platnium... My Heart Gold should be in the mail tomorrow and I will do likewise on that game. I will get White soon do a few runs on that enjoy it, and eventually figure out how to fix my wifi and put all my Gold and Platnium homies on it to work on completing the Pokedex.

          I finished my Normal Monotype :)
          Almost finished part of my Hall of Fame also.

          I'm think of a break of challenges. I have other things I need to tend to.

            Syd is your school done already? Wow, Bama schools ge3t out early! We still have 2 weeks to go....

            In other news, since summer is right around the corner, shouldn't we start planning out this summer event? The giant challenge tournament thing?

            Yeah, I'm already done! I think it's just my uni though. Not all Alabama colleges get out this early.

            And personally, I think we should wait for the Get Together. That way, we could get more people into the challenge, since it would be in the main Get Together forum, and not just hidden in this one where non-regulars would never look and see it. And if people enjoy it enough, we could see more regulars and challengers around here. But, if we wanna start planning and working out bugs and stuff, that'll put us a step ahead when it is time for the Get Together.

            Also, I'm thinking of an event for next month, but I don't know if it could work. So...I might do two events next month, and it would be up to you if you wanna enter one or both (or neither!) so if anyone has a suggestion, they can PM it to me if they'd like. :o Nothing too crazy, just something simple, like a theme. But no guarantees about it. I'm just trying to think of something for people to do in case they don't have the game I'm planning the event to be for. Secretive mod is secretive.

            Our school has 8 weeks left. :/ And School = not nearly as much time as I'd like. Which means I probably can only do challenges on the weekends, and even then...bleh. D:

              Got Pokemon Heart Gold its Pokewalker in the mail today D: I probably won't replay it until I get an acekard to store more games on but I feel like I need to do a challenge. I was thinking of doing fall, but I'd feel so guilty putting my poor little starter in the PC to sit and wait while having to cart around either 2 psychics or 2 dark types ....so who knows

                Did I get a present? :)
                So I sent in an idea to your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman Sydian and I hope it's a good idea. It was just something I mentioned on the spot, so it better be good. Still thinking of a challenge to play, and I'm seriously considering picking up FireRed again to play. Kanto was soo much fun. :)

                Because FireRed > LeafGreen, and it's one of the only games I still have which I don't really mind restarting. Also your mum :P

                I don't know what game to play for a challenge. I've already got two going in Ruby and Emerald, and I really don't want to start a new one in Hoenn, since then it would just get too repetitive. -_-

                  It looks all right to me. Rubyish and Sapphirish colored and neat and tidy... did I miss something?

                  Also, I am having trouble getting a working ROM for B/W. This will make monotypes quite hard when I get to that generation...

                  I never really liked playing DS games on an emulator. The emulator itself I don't think has a speed button, which is kinda crucial to Pokemon games now when playing on an emulator. Also some of them are hard to control as well.

                  Well, if you play DPPt and HG/SS on Unlimited MHz Disaster, 10%, the battles speed up to 400-500%, inside buildings is 250% about, and outside is 190-200%, depending on where you are. The frame rate isn't as good as Realtime*2, though. That does speed it up some, although not to the extent that the VBA games (Gens I-III) do.

                  I find that B/W works best on Realtime*2, though.

                  Is it me or do challenges on R/B/Y take only a fraction of the time it take to do it on any other generation.

                    Thats maybe because 1. and 2. gen can be sped up to 3000-4000, and 1. is far shorter that 2. gen. :S
                    And its jus shorter in general

                      Oh definitely. Plus, I think that there were way more trainers in proportion to the length of the game, all with higher leveled/evolved Pokemon compared to the other games, so you got exp faster.

                      But yeah, it usually takes around like an hour for me to do a challenge on Red/Blue compared to the like day it takes me to go through Ruby/Sapphire (I get distracted and bored easily.)

                      You guys didn't see the announcement where Aegis edited it the other day and then where I edited it last night? Well dang!

                      I tend to finish challenges faster on hard copies...proooobably because I hardly ever use emulators for challenges. I've only used one for a challenge once, which was the last event.
