    Habitat sounds cool though.
    I would do a habitat if you made it sounds pretty cool and I'm always up for a new fresh way to play the game.

      Good idea. I really want to do challenge like that.

      What about a Single Ability challenge? Where you are only allowed to use Pokémons with a single ability?

          a) The challenge ends when the 8th gym leader is defeated.
          b) You must use only the type of ONE of the E4 members (eg. in Sinnoh you must monotype with either Bug, Fire, Ground or Psychic).
          c) You can use any of the Pokemon you have used for any of the gym battles.
          You could also only be able to use the pokemon from your team that correspond with the current e4 member is. So if you had this team in emerald:

          Sableye
          Walrein
          Flygon
          Sharpedo
          Salamence
          Banette

          You could use Sableye and Sharpedo for Sidney because they're dark type
          You could use Sableye and Banette for Phoebe because they're ghost type
          You could use Walrein for Glacia because it's ice type
          You could use Flygon and Salamence for Drake because they're dragon type
          You could use Walrein and Sharpedo for Wallace because they're water type

          O_o It's a terrible team, but you get my point. (I hope)

            there's an ostrich farm no too far from my town, dodrio pwnage

            yeah i don't see that challenge topic on here either. i'm not really active enough on to start a challenge thread myself, if anyone wants to start one for the habitat idea then be my guest.

            I might start another one but ain't sure yet. Though probably someone else may start a different Gen

                I would try a Habitat challenge after my Monotype one, Although I live in the middle of nowhere so my team would be:
                A dog ( Growlithe maybe)
                A bird (Pidgey?)
                A Rat (Rattata )
                A Cat (Meowth?)
                A Dragon (Dragonite?) (Just kidding about the Dragon )

                  I think that would be too hard, and would require too much grinding, and would really limit your choices.

                  I went with B in the end.

                  I meant openng up a speed run thread. This way people can compete for the best time. They must supply evidence of their final time. The evidence is subject to evaluation, etc, etc.

                  I think a cool/fun challenge would be to make a new team after each gym leader, only using Pokemon you can find while getting from the city of the previous gym leader to the next gym leader. So you can catch any Pokemon while going up to Pewter City and use them against Brock, then deposit all but one in the PC, and make a whole new team to use against Misty (weather it is just one Pokemon or a whole team of 6). And for the E4 you can use any Pokemon that you used for any of the gym leaders, but at the level you deposited them.

                    i like that idea, i like any idea of using new pokemon or ones you haven't used before. pidgey or zubat would be on every team in red and blue :D. it would also be hard around saffron and celadon because there's only that little route and patch of grass in between them

                        I recently finished a Nuzclocke run on Silver version (and by finished I mean I lost before the fifth gym leader), so I'm not doing another one of those for a while.

                        I once did a one-gender-only run. Rules are that the gender of your starter dictates what kind of gender pokemon you can catch. Believe it or not, it makes it quite a bit harder to catch a few pokemon.

                          Everyone who wants to do this should join PROJECT ALPHA FAN. We're working on beating the record for Blue Version (which according to the Guiness Book of Video Games Records currently is at 1:55). Except its not really a free for all challenge, its more of a team challenge. Nevertheless, I think it would be cool to try to collectively get the record in every game.

                            I had this idea in mind a while back, the Mono-AttackType challenge. Basically, your Pokemon's moves must correspond to their type.

                            For example, a Blastoise would only be allowed to use a moveset such as Surf, Hydro Cannon, Withdraw, Rain Dance, all of which are Water type. (Obviously by considering this, dual-type Pokemon are a lot more useful probably)

                            Coming off my mind right away are moves such as Confuse Ray which could only be present on Ghost Pokemon.

                            The rule would be that you must delete moves of type not matching that Pokemon as soon as possible, either by overwriting them with the appropriate moves or deleting them. It would be a must to enforce that by the time you meet the move deleter, you MUST delete all non-matching type moves.

                            An alternative way to make the challenge easier to implement would be to do it the other way round, i.e. your Pokemon's moves must NOT be of the same type as the Pokemon itself; i.e. a Charizard with Earthquake, Rock Slide, Swords Dance and Dragon Claw.
                            (This would make the challenge much easier, imo, as you have a lot more coverage, though you lose STAB)

                              I like that idea for a challenge emoxy. You should start a challenge like that. I would definitely join It sounds like a lot of fun.
                              I put up a challenge myself today. I hope some people join and its not just me doing my challenge all alone. I made a challenge where you can only use pokemon that are similar to pets in the real world.

                                I was thinking of a ShinyGoldX nuzlocke challenge since that game is pretty hard.

                                  Has anyone got any ideas for Mystery Dungeon challenges? I know that most of the conventional challenges would be pretty hard/impossible to do because you and your partner have to be different types, but still. I also realise that the Mystery Dungeon games take EONS to complete, so any threads would probably die before anyone completed the challenge. It's just that I have so many spare MD cartridges and I'd love to do a couple of challenges on them.

                                  Here are some challenges I thought of for MD. Not amazing, but still. Worth chucking out there for opinions.

                                  ~ No Gummis - no eating gummis, so no IQ increase. Cuts off some useful IQ skills (such as nonsleeper).
                                  ~ No Held Items - Held items are a large part of MD, so a challenge where you can't use them could be... Challenging.
                                  ~ No Recruiting - Just you and your partner all the way through. I know quite a few people do this anyway, so perhaps not.
                                  ~ No Power Ups - Such as Ginseng and Protein/Iron etc. Possibly used in conjuction with the No Gummi challenge.
                                  ~ No Wonder Orbs - No using Orbs. Could be a challenge for those who rely on Petrify Orbs or the like to see them through Monster Houses.
                                  ~ A challenge where only you use Moves - turn moves off for your partner and only let them use their regular attack.
                                  ~ No Extra Dungeons - Only visit the dungeons essential to the storyline.

                                  What do you lot think? Any potential for an MD challenge or two, or is it best to focus on the main games?

                                    I originally had a sort of mystery dungeon challenge, where you basically played like mystery dungeon: you could only have 3 Pokemon at a time, you sharked in your first two from the normal mystery dungeon starters list, and you had to have one of them with you at all times.

                                      Hmm. That would require you having to use a cheating device, though, and many people don't like to do that.

                                      A cool challenge to do would be to only use the first 6 (or 5 if you want a slot for an HM Slave) Pokemon that you encounter. So if you run into a Bidoof and faint it you must catch a Bidoof as soon as possible. And if you want different Pokemon on your team you can take the games slow and look for Pokemon where you want to.
