I'm a big fluffy Altaria. :) Anyway, I like that challenge idea, deku. :o Maybe not the item idea though. I think you could list a few more challenging options, similar to how the Nuzlocke has options like nicknaming everything and such. There are soooo many sets though. I think for signing up, the Swablu should link to a page listing all the cards in that set. I might actually try this challenge, it seems fun, especially since I used to love the TCG. Too bad I can't use what's in the decks I built on my own though. lol ALSO. I'm thinking of buying an English White since I don't plan on restarting my Japanese. :)

Some restrictions could be having to have the moves that are on the card on your Pokemon, not using legendaries, using a game from the generation that the set was made, or using only items that are in the set. I'm sure someone could come up with other ideas for restrictions, but I want to see what other people think of this idea.
This sounds pretty fun. If you were to start it, then I'd definitely join up. knowing me, I'd probably do it with every single set.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if the item thing would work or not. There are 48 sets, but I don't think that is too many and by using just one it will limit you quite a bit (especially if you choose one such as Team Magma vs. Team Aqua over Jungle, it just depends on what difficulty level people want). I think that using the PokeBeach site would be fine for linking to because it lists all of the current sets and gives scans for each card. I thought about letting people use their own sets but there would be no way to limit it D:. I'm looking for a full list of offically released Theme decks, but I'm having trouble finding one. I think if we can find a complete list of them, we could limit it by that which would provide further limitation than complete sets. Bulbapedia looks pretty good. Maybe go here, choose either Original, Gym, Neo, e-Card, EX, Delta, Diamond and Pearl, Platinum, HGSS, or BW, or Other, then click one of the links under whatever you chose and see what theme decks it has and choose one of those. Its kind of drawn out, but it is the best place I could find.

note: I'm working on the thread for this challenge, so no one make one please :)

If you're talking about a TCG challenge, based on only using Pokemon from a certain deck type, then I'd be all good for that. It'd give me a reason to start my Soulsilver again, which is always nice. :D

It is a TCG challenge, Alternative. By the way, I sent the thread in which brings me to my next suggestion, a 'Check to see if your challenge has been accepted' thread, similar to how the RP sections has one for roleplays and how (I think) the club areas have one for club makers to know.

I know Other Clubs doesn't have one, but seriously, that's a good idea. I don't think it should be anything like the Role Playing thread in any way, as that's actually active, but have just a simple directory thing, so if you're looking for a certain challenge, you can go straight there. If you think of a good challenge idea and it isn't in the list, feel free to make it. If it's not too hard, Sydian could make an update every week for challenges that have been accepted and add them to the list.

Yeah a directory would be great. I'm not sure of the amount of new threads get submitted a week here, but we probably wouldn't need the original thread I mentioned, just a directory updated every week with new challenges and ones that died. I wouldn't mind making one if Syd allowed it.

I think if this place had more challenges coming in, then I'd make one. Depends on the roll in. But tbh, it'd be more like a wall of shame, because most challenges that await approval are from people with no posts and are likely to never even come back to this section (or PC as a whole) to even check if they're approved. And most are neglected from the start, with the challenger not even partaking. That's the downfall to most unapproved challenges, really.

Is that to the See if your challenge has been accepted thread, or the directory idea, because I think the directory could work really well. It's not really a wall of shame, as it's just showing those challenges which already exist, and is also a reference guide to challenges which have already been created, so there aren't any like that in the future.

Oh, lmao. I was talking about the "see if you challenge has been approved" thread. That would be such a wall of shame. XD Directory thread/Challenge index I used to think was a bad idea, but that was back before there were so many challenges. I could whip a thread up within this week or something though. Perhaps Friday, since I'll be rushing a challenge tomorrow and I'll have class the next two days (yeah, my one month of summer was p fun I guess lmao /no life). I'll provide a nice description of each challenge and make it pretty, I reckon~ I LIKED THINGS TO BE DETAILED AND AESTHETICALLY PLEASING because burning eyes is bad.

Well I'm doing practically nothing over the next however many days until I land myself a job, so I could easily whip something up and PM you what I make or something? :3

You should do the Victini challenge. Pretty much, whatever Victini tells you to do, you have to do it, so if there was a "Victini says fly" then you must use a Pokemon that can learn fly. If there's a "Victini says get on all fours for sexy action" then you must use a Pokemon which has four legs.

I pretty much made that up on the spot. Kinda lulzy if you ask me.

But if you're seriously lookinf for a new challenge, deku just made the TCG challenge, so you might be interested in that. It seems interesting enough to me, so I might even restart my soulsilver just to play it.

As much as I love emulators, due to the speed being very speedy, but there's something about playing on the cartridge itself which is very amusing. The ability to play the cartridge means I don't necessarily have to be at the computer to play it, and I actually get the motivation to play it as well. :D

I would play it on a cartridge, but my Emerald version has gone walk abouts. <_< So has Leafgreen, and Heartgold! >: I hate 5 Year old children. D: Messing with muh thangs.

My sapphire went walk abouts, meaning I lost it at my own fault, and now somehow I have two versions of Leafgreen, which is awfully weird. :P

I don't really care about the lost Leafgreen, it kept erasing my data, so it was obviously broken. v_v I just want my dear Emerald back. ;;

Well it can't be you, as you're the resident Green/Gary/Giratina whatever you are. I'll just go three G's. I'm obviously the resident Magcargo/Volbeat/Exeggutor/Boldore here. As for other people, I have no idea.

I always pictured myrrhman as the resident Rocket Grunt for some reason. :|
