      Go join the actual challenge to get a team, hun. And nubby is basically...stupid. When I say "I don't want it to be nubby" I mean "I don't want it to be stupid" lol.

      Example of nubby challenge thread:

      "hi me and my friends were playing pokemon one time and decided it would be cool/tough to release our pokemon if they fainted so you guys should try it too. okay good luck."

      Also, once I finish White, I will start the Plushie Challenge probably. Eeeeee.

        I really like challenges that have me use Pokemon I've never used or would never think to use, so that's things like random and scramble. I also like my pick up and play challenge. If you're in a mood to play Pokemon, but can't decided which, why not play each one on different days? I find it can rekindle your fire for a game. I went on a HG spree after playing it for my recent PU&P challenge. Also things like the plushie challenge I'm gonna make, and the ever so popular Ones That Got Away. Just things that aren't the normal thing, really. And I find the events I make to be fun too. Y'all might not though lol. ;(

          They are fun, Syd
          I kinda like more strategical ones (such as Nuzlocke or Solo run) in which you have to be more careful with your actions

            Duo-Species. All the way.

            As for why: I don't really know. I thought a solo run put too much emphasis on training one Pokemon, and I don't like doing that. Its like a nooby trainer who plays the game for the first time and only uses their starter cause they're stupid. I thought that two would be just as hard of a challenge, because you now have to split the exp, and have to pick Pokemon with good type coverage so that you don't get bumrushed by a gym leader. Plus, its relatively quick to finish.
            (lol, says the guy who has three going on right now /shot)

            And nix the whole Scramble Nuzlocke, I'm gonna do a Triple Threat Duo-Species that I still have to finish.

            And the monotype, being the first challenge I ever attempted, will always be a close second.

            Actually, my monocolor thread doesn't require that! :D

            My favorite challenge probably is the monotype, but I agree with Sydian. Right now, I'm trying to do challenges that let me use Pokemon I haven't used before, unless they completely suck, lol.

              I completely love monotyping, but nuzlocke is cool too. Including the monotype evo = death rule where I couldn't hold up evolution ;3 Needed a lot of strategy and luck for that!

              Edit: Just found this in the solo run challenge thread:

              Quote:
              Glacia, Alot of switching into groudon to put up sun for a turn while she put up the hail. Frustrating, but easy
              But if you do that, what's the point of a solo challenge? If you use TWO Pokemon in the battle?

                I'm partial to the Mono challenges. They're not necessarily much more challenging than a regular run, but it puts certain restrictions into effect that makes putting together a team with as much coverage as possible that much more of a puzzle. Not gonna lie, my favorite part of doing a run is planning out my entire team beforehand, and these challenges not only encourage that, but almost make it necessary. I like having control over what I use.

                I love planning out teams for challenges. I always plan out teams and movesets before hand. I guess that is why I like challenges like mono rather than Nuzlocke.

                  Speaking of planning movesets, I'm gonna do a solo with Sableye (on Leaf Green)
                  Any moveset suggestions?

                  shadow ball and faint attack seem obvious. others...Calm Mind is good, then maybe Psychic or Shock Wave or something. If you want to use Attack, Brick Break is a good move too.

                    I'm nearing the end of my Duo-Species run on Ruby, and am in need of two new combatants and would love input from you guys. Dino and Shade are having trouble in the Elite Four though.

                    (Venusaur and Bannette have poor type coverage in the Hoenn Elite Four /shrug)

                    Use Shadow Ball and Brick Break definitely, it has perfect type coverage.

                    In other news, I got a new plushie that I could use for the challenge; Togekiss.

                      I would suggest Shadow ball, Brick break, Faint attack and Toxic. Because stab + coverage + status move kills everything :D

                      Looks like Karpman is free! But he doesn't really frequent the Challenge forum anymore, so I think I'll keep the Nuzlocke thread locked and allow for a new one. That one ran its course long enough I think. Though I'm going to be quite picky with it tbh. I want it to look nice and be run by someone that I think is capable of keeping up with it. Good thing I'm not so picky with other challenges, right? lol or am i

                        We don't? OOOOPS. Thought we still had it. Ruh roh. Now I hope that when I unapproved those other ones that it was still around when I did. Those people probably think I'm a huge dick now, lol.

                          Bahaha, we do but it's from '11, and I don't feel like necroposting to revive the thread.

                          I could make the Nuzlocke challenge thread, but my updates would be really slow. If you need one, you can ask me.

                          Also was Banette's Destiny Bond a lifesaver? Because Destiny Bond on my Vespiquen saved my in my flying mono in Diamond.

                          Yeah, if it's from 11 then don't post in it haha. This section has a two month revival rule. But yeeeah now I feel bad. XD Now we need a new duo-species challenge!!

                          Vappy, if you wanna make one, go ahead. I just want it to look nice and be run by someone that can keep up with it, and I'm sure you can. It's okay if your updates are slow. Mine are like that when I make challenges, haha. They end up falling into inactivity though and I forget cause no one else updates either. :( I need to play Red for Pick Up and Play soon.
