    I'm still not sure when my next day off is. Since I start at 8:10 in the morning every day and end at 4:10 in the afternoon except for friday, I really want a day off

    Although, our teacher gave us a half day today, which is really nice

    I can assure you there's no Halloween challenge this year. Sorry! Gotta change things up a bit every year, ya know? Can't keep celebrating the same holidays with challenges all the time. That being said, who's ready for Groundhog's Day Challenge in February?!

    Oh lol. A Labor Day challenge where you can't use White Pokemon.

    I'm not sure about Christmas. We've had a Christmas event every year, so the idea feels a bit tired, so maybe we could give January a spin for something. I can't think of any theme that January brings us, so it might just be some other type of challenge, but we'll wait and see what comes about. :)

    What if we used something like Hanukkah as the basis for a challenge? A change from the usual.

    Like foreign holidays as opposed to the more mainstream ones? That seems pretty doable.

      I might make the food challenge if people are actually interested in it!

      Since this August we celebrated Syd's birthday with a challenge, next August we should celebrate my birthday since it's on August 24th, yay

        My inner Jewish is screaming and dancing at the thought of a Hanukkah challenge.

              He gave us Strength, silly. You got surf from the end of the Safari Zone.
              Anyways, a Hanukkah challenge seems like it'd be hard to think of.
              The things that you can receive from Hanukkah would be hard to make a challenge out of.


              Also, I was thinking of making an education challenge. Basically, you would go through your normal life and get Pokemon based on the years.
              Elementary Schoolers:
              Males - Get any Reptile/Amphibian/Dinosaur Pokemon
              Girls - Get any Cute Pokemon of your choice

              Middle Schoolers:
              Middle school is when you follow the crowd, so get any popular, common Pokemon.

              High School:
              Boys - Get any plant looking Pokemon (When people experiment with marijuana and stuff) or any Fighting type Pokemon(Cause of fights)
              Girls - Get any Pokemon that looks like a Girl, or looks lavished in Make-up.

              College:
              You pick your Minor and Major, and each one gives a certain Pokemon.
              If you Major in the Medical field - You get a Pokemon that has healing moves.
              If your Minor is in the Writing field - You get a Dragon type Pokemon, since they are like stories and normally not real looking.

              That either shows you A. how sick I have been or B. how long it's been since I've gone through Kanto. ~_~ I just restarted FireRed for the first time in forever though, so maybe I'll get brushed up soon enough.

              School challenge sounds cute. lol Major and minor might be difficult...especially when minors are not even required, so most of us in college probably don't have one. :P I suppose in my case, I could just pick the other half of my major, since it's a double. But I don't know how you'd ever represent special education as a Pokemon.

                I don't mean that you use the ones you do in real life. I'll provide a list with the Challenge creation. You choose what you want based off that list. And I figured Special Education and Education would go hand-and-hand, and I'd probably do like a Psychic Type Pokemon choice. Since in the Contests Psychic moves are Smart. Teachers need to be smart. I don't know yet.

                  Aww Syddy, get better bby :'(

                  For special education you'd have to choose between a Slowpoke or a Bidoof methinks.

                    Hmmm... instead of a January challenge, why don't you do a Chinese New Year's challenge? It could be centered around any of these ideas:
                    Spoiler:

                    -Color theme: red since red is important in the mythological background of Chinese New year.
                    -Item/Pokemon Theme: the yearly qualities such as prosperity(amulet coin), luckiness(lucky egg), health(leftovers, berries). Or even plant pokemon since plants are used to represent these qualities.
                    -Overall theme: Since lions and dragons are important, you could only use dragon types or get pokemon that are related to dragons and the Felidae family.
                    -Fireworks: Colorful pokemon or get pokemon that release some sort of effect when sent out. Ex: Shinies, pokemon that performed in the PokeStar Studios, pokeball FX(from Hoenn I think), premier balls, etc.
                    -Maybe even something that has to do with the fifteen days of Chinese New Year celebrations

                    Also, something seperate, you could do a yearly challenge based around the chinese zodiacs. Ex: next year is the year of the horse, so Zebstrika, Raphidash, or those related to the Equidae family.

                    Well I used mine as an example because since it is my major, I'd want to pick it. I mean, it could be different for people that aren't in college yet and don't have a major, or for those that aren't there yet with no clue what they want to do, but I imagine most would want to pick what they're majoring in. Makes it more fun to use what you relate to. Besides, I think it'd take a long time to make a list of majors and minors when you consider what all schools offer and such, unless you're really up for that challenge.

                    That's not really nice though.
