    Sorry for no responses, I was really busy last few days. I'm currently doing a mono flying challenge on Black 2, but I have to release my highest level after every 2 gyms :p. I traded in my whole team in the beginning, while I solo'd Cheren with a Pidove, which is now boxed. I had to release either Archen or Woobat after Roxie, so I chose for Woobat, since I have another psychic type in Sigilyph.

    It's no big deal if you don't post for a few days. Lots of us sometimes have no time for it. So no need to apologize, we're not going anywhere! :D

    Interestingly enough, BW seems to be faster though, since the first half goes by so quick, although I guess BW2 would go faster if you use the Lucky Egg and skip some trainers. Usually for me they end up about the same (ending and Alder/first Iris fight).

    I will say that BW2 isn't worth playing unless you use challenge mode though.

    Challenge mode is certainly a worthwhile addition. I just wish it wasn't limited to Black version to unlock. I mean, seriously, who's gonna use an Easy mode AFTER you beat the game. Come on Game Freak.

      Not to mention that the mode unlocks vanish if you start a new save. =/ and only ones who can share the Challenge modes are the Black2 users. (Even if you'd have both modes on a W2 save it will only send over the easy mode.)

          Yeah, my friend is working on a Fan Game, and this is one of the Fakemon I concocted for it. They're Fire/Psychic Pokemon, Pyrokinetic was the concept (Something that Victini really wasn't...) They are intended to be the opposite of the Ralts Family, in that they're more masculine, with a female split evolution.

            It's a long ways off, it's all conceptual atm. Little guy on the Left is Pyrokin, On the Right is Pyrotic, Middle is Pyrocaust, and floating is Pyrosis.

              I think they look pretty good too. And that is a lot from me considering I hate most fakemon.

                OK, I hope I'm in the right place when talking about challenge ideas, but I've just thought of a new one.

                I'd call this the "Lightweight Challenge" since this is all about lightweight Pokemon. The objective is to beat the game using Pokemon that are lighter than say for example 15kg (or 33lbs). If we want an optional challenge, then we can say that any HM Slaves can only be used under the weight restriction.

                I hope this is an interesting idea.

                It sound familiar, idk.

                It's not a bad idea though, you could also extend it to be that you can only use a pokémon in certain weight range, to give people more options in the sort of Pokémon.

                Yup, I'm certain we've had something like that once. I'd extend it as well though, or have different weight classes to pick from instead of just lightweight. I mean, the monocolor challenge lets you pick more than one color. There's not a thread for blue and a separate for brown. Just an example, of course.

                Yeaaaaah having a complicated challenge sucks. ;( You end up forgetting about the thread and people ask a bunch of questions that you already had answered in the first post. lol

                    Omg I was playing my personal challenge trying to catch all the Pokemon in Sapphire and I got up to 188ish. All I basically had left was some baby Pokemon, Treecko/Grovyle/Mudkip, and legendaries. SO, I was playing Emerald to get Dittos for the first two groups of Pokemon. I traded Kyogre over and beat the elite four, but after the credits it didn't have the continue option, only the new game option. Guess I have a ****ty ROM that has anti-piracy stuff on it. BASICALLY i lost Kyogre and don't know how I'm going to beat Emerald now...

                    Also nice Sig, Syddy, I <3 Macklemore.

                    Oh woe is me!

                    It finally happened. My computer broke. This really sucks, but at least my trade shop is closed right now, so I don't have to worry too much about my ability to access PC. I won't really be able to update any of my challenge threads unfortunately, until I get a new computer. I can post still thankfully, but since the Xbox 360 version Internet Explorer doesn't have tabs, I can't really update the challengers lists.

                    Oh man, that sucks. :( Sorry hun. Just let all your challengers know that you can't update and I'm sure they'll understand. You'll have your work cut out for you when you come back to it though, lol.

                    Can't wait for your shop to reopen btw. :3 I was looking through and saw something of interest~!

                    I noticed that a few people have been double posting. Most notably people posting their first update after starting a challenge. I just wanna remind everyone that double posting is against pokecommunity rules. You have to wait until someone else posts in the thread before you can post yourself. The exception is if no one has posted in the thread for over a month. But thats it, and that's only in challenges. Other forums have different rules on double posting, so make sure you check.

                      Yes, that's why there's an edit button in the posts, if you're speed player. ;

                        I once completed the whole yellow and 3 badges of Crystal in Monocolor before somebody else posted!
