    The Challenge Forum isn't really that big,I don't know why we need a directory.Does it kill you to skim 2 pages.

    The same amount of time to go on the Directory thread and find the thread you want,you would already be done finding the thread normaly. So that Idea is a big thumbs down.

    @GGSD At the moment I guess you should keep it to yourself,but I will leave that to Sydian to decide.

        It's a good idea after all!

            Yes, but this challenge is for who wants to try it, none others.
            And, for those who don't want to be spoilered, just don't enter in those threads.

              Then be sure to make the Thread Title along these lines:

              Or Something like that.

                I just fell in a pool with my DS in my pocket. My DS is currently destroyed, it doesn't work.
                Well, only occassionally and it has random crashes anyways.
                That means that my SS Nuzlocke is in a stall, and I hate that. I mean, it's the weekendz, and what am I supposed to do ?

                Pory-Z, I saw your BW solo challenge. I sent messages to the members that run the main challenges that cover all generations, so the posts will be edited to include BW. And I'm also going to bring it to the admin's attention that we need a BW prefix to be added. So don't worry, we're working on getting the BW challenges up and running. :) However, I don't expect a lot of people to do challenges on BW too soon, since most people don't have it and people probably just wanna play through like normal and get a good feel of the game.

                And that directory thread, I'm still iffy on. Like Chaos said, it's just 2 pages (the others past that are all inactive).

                I also thought of a sort of challenge today while I was playing HG outside the library, however it might just be a personal feat I want to do out of boredom. But the gist of it is that one day, you play one game. Just start wherever you left off on it, whether you were doing a challenge or done with it or whatever. Don't restart...like...hold on.

                Day 1 - Red Version
                Day 2 - Blue
                Day 3 - Yellow
                Day 4 - Gold
                Etc.

                You take that cycle, skipping a game if you don't have it of course, but yeah. Up until Black or White. What you do is just play where you left off and only play that game that particular day. You don't have to be glued to it, but just play it enough to get somewhere. And at the end of that day, you post where you started and your team at that point and where you stopped by the time you were done for that day. I might do this...since I have all the games (except Green). It's only mainstream games, so no spin offs. I hope that idea made sense. :( I don't think I'll post a thread for it...mainly cause I can't think of a name.

                  Sounds like a good idea, Syd, although it might be good to shuffle the order a bit. Always playing twin/triplet versions right after each other looks like a bit tedious to me.

                    Really, a very good idea, since I've got too all games.

                    But, why not inserting also a spin-off like Mystery Dungeons?

                    It would be more funnier and longer :D

                      Okay, I get your point, Syd. But since it gets really tedious to play every game from every gen., how about this :

                      Day 1 - Red
                      Day 2 - Silver
                      Day 3 - Emerald
                      Day 4 - Diamond
                      Day 5 - Black (if you have it).

                      Remember, it is just a suggestion so that it doesn't get really iffy.
                      And we also need to think up a name...

                      Yeah, I was thinking that too. Cause I hate DP and FRLG and wouldn't wanna play them consistently. I might post this later. Also, you don't have to be too consistent with your days either. You don't have to play every single day. We have lives. Maybe.

                      I think the reason I thought this would be fun is because I have been feeling really nostalgic lately, and I really wanna just play some old games for a bit.

                      Oh, and it wouldn't matter if you used ROMs or a hard copy. I have two copies of Emerald, but I'd prefer to use my ROM since 1 Emerald is storage and the other is probably done. If you have multiples of a game, you can choose which one you want to play.

                      Yeah...I think I just might post this later. :)

                      Yeah, I suppose you can just ask someone to mix up the order, just tell them which games you have. I'd probably put White last since it's on its way for me. And I'm really weird about having something missing, so I feel like I would have to have both Black and White in there. Haha. I'm just weird like that I guess. And feel free to pitch name ideas at me. :) I'll start thinking of some as well...like while I'm in band.

                      Oh, and you don't really have to go in generation order. I might start with Ruby then go to Black then Yellow, etc. I mean, think of crazy combos. :P Oh, and this would include the remakes as well. Like I said, every mainstream (or as many as you have).

                        Okay, I think I'll do your challenge when it's up, Syd. But with those rules I posted a bit above.

                          New challenge sounds cool I guess,since I have no life :D

                          Oh and I HATE YOUTUBE D:

                          Takes 6 minutes to upload 1% so that means it takes me 600 Minutes (10 hours). And I'm not going through that,sorry everyone who wanted a video walkthrough (Probably nobody) but I let you guys down.

                          Since I can spoil all I want this was gonna be my Survival Team

                          Spoiler:
                          Sydian/Quilava (My two cents is that Sydian would kill me if I didn't xD)

                          560cool./Scizor (Arceus was his avatar (old one that is) and that's the PokéGod and since when Scizor wasn't god)

                          Myrrhman/Lanturn (Myrrh likes Water types and I need a Gyra Counter)

                          Chaos11011/Xatu (Idk I need a flyer and well it has wish,plus I wanna name >:D)

                          Monday(s)Suck/Jumpluff (Today I will finaly insert a Zombie Jumpluff in your Avi Mondays)

                          AceDragon(ite)/Dragonite (Well your username makes it obvious plus who dosn't wanna be an Extremespeed Dragonite :D

                          Key: "( )" = the part of your Username that dosn't co-operate with the 10 Character Limit Pokémon has


                          I will try to make the thread right now so I can Update without annoying you all xD

                          WE MUST ALL COPY SYDIAN'S THEME >:D

                            Eh, don't kill me chaos. And don't run out of PP on me. And if you're plying DPPt, teach me Bullet Punch. lol.
                            Well, I am beggining Syd's challenge. With Blue. I think there was a Nuzlocke on my Blue, but then I got bored and started abusing the Mew Glitch with the Abra I caught. xD
                            I'll get to raising that Lv. 11 Scyther I named GLITCH, and hopepfully make some progress before I move to Silver.

                                @chaos: I bet I'll be the first to die. But not before evolving into Jumpluff, please, since there are no such things as a Zombie Hoppip or a Zombie Skiploom.

                                  @chaos : So, I look like a Tech HM Slave ? Hm, that's cool, since Cut gets to 75 BP, Rock Smash to 60 BP and Bullet Punch to an outrageous 90 BP.
                                  Which is cool.

                                  Guys, I hate Diamond so much. lmao I have been in the damn forest all day, just grinding a Tyrogue to level 20, and then I am getting the heck out of here. I think this is an abandoned random challenge, cause there is no way I would have ever randomly decided "Hm, I think I'll trade a Chinchou and Tyrogue to Diamond!" I mean...really. lol But it's not as bad as how tomorrow will be when I go to FireRed. Sick.

                                    See, this is why I do my best to get into a challenge as far as possible before quitting. xD
                                    That way I don't end up with a Tyrogue in Eterna Forest pwning Bunearys all day. >.>"

                                      This is still the challenge idea thread, right?

                                      Ok, here's something (I think) is rarely taken into consideration:
                                      Pokemon growth rate (ie experience needed to reach lv 100).

                                      The Growth Group Challenge:
                                      - you may only use pokemon with the same growth rate (erratic, fast, medium, parabolic, slow, or fluctuating)

                                      Medium is easiest (has the most pokes), but not hugely powerful; parabolic is more limited and slower to raise (marginally) but has stronger members, fluctuating takes the longest and has very few, etc.

                                      I'd do that, especially to try and complete the challenge for each growth group.

                                      I can post lists if they're ever needed. :>

                                        Something to think about.
                                        Does anyone get sick of those challenges where the only thing decided is the pokemon you use?
                                        Like, you get the letter K, use pokemon that starts with K.
                                        They're not really challenges, just an interesting way to choose the pokemon you use.
                                        I want more creative challenges.
                                        Who here remembers the scramble challenge? now THAT was epic.

                                          Does anyone get sick of those challenges where the only thing decided is the pokemon you use?
                                          Like, you get the letter K, use pokemon that starts with K.
                                          They're not really challenges, just an interesting way to choose the pokemon you use.
                                          I want more creative challenges.
                                          Who here remembers the scramble challenge? now THAT was epic.
                                          What was the scramble challenge?

                                          @ Shiny: It sounds...interesting. How would someone decide the Pokemon?
