    It's not that complicated, just kind of hard to put concisely. Anyway, the best way to explain something is by example - I'll do a mini-playthrough (up to and just beyond Roxanne on Ruby) like this and post it here (it'll be short enough for 1 post :>). Maybe that'll help - not to mention that I'll see if I like it or not anyway '

    @560cool. - Yeah, I actually did think it up with more demanding challengers (=Myrrhman) in mind, just to see if I could.

    I'll get back to you guys.

    UPDATE:
    Whoa, this thing really took off on me - Treecko learned Absorb at lv 6, so I caught the Zigzagoon I saw after that... then the Zigzagoon learned Tail Whip at lv 5, so I got another Zigzagoon (Pickup ftw :>), which then learned Tail Whip at lv 5, but I KO'd the Seedot I saw (:<). Zigzagoon 1 then learned Headbutt at lv 9, which got me a Wurmple. Wurmple then evolved at lv 7 into Silcoon, learning Harden, so I caught the Cascoon I came across. Zigzagoon 2 learned Headbutt at lv 9, and that netted me another Cascoon. Treecko learned Quick Attack at lv 12, so I caught a Taillow and boxed it. Cascoon 1 evolved into Dustox and learned Confusion, so I got a Whismur. Silcoon then evolved into Beautifly and I got a Nincada - then Whismur learned Astonish but I KO'd the Zigzagoon that popped up (already have 2). Nincada (who's pretty cool actually) learned Sand-Attack, so I got myself a Seedot.
    Roxanne is still in the far future! Basically, I've ended up with a truckload of pokemon. I admit it's pretty fun but it's also no challenge at all, so something needs to be done to make it more difficult. Dunno what, though.

    By the way, I think I'll call it the Chain-Link Challenge.

    EDIT:
    Spoiler:

    I'm adding a new rule for those who need extra difficulty - After a gym battle, release the same number of pokemon from your box as were in your party when you took on the gym leader. For example, if I take 6 pokemon to battle Roxanne, I must release any 6 pokemon from my box afterwards.


    Also, @chaos - Yes, lower levels are fine too.

      That challenge sounds cool enough for me to add it to my PUAP. :D

      And about the rule "3 - Only pokemon that are at the same level as the leader's weakest pokemon can take on a gym." does it have to be the Same Lvl or can it be at a lower lvl (example: I take on Crasher Wake,his lowest lvl is a Gyrados Lvl 33. Am I allowed to use a Lvl30 Luxray and a lvl 29 Roselia)

          EDIT : Got it... now I feel like a noob.
          You've got to be a little helpless noob to do this ! xD I remember posting some random help thread on PSPiso, that PSP related forum, on their General Dicussion, while it was about an app. :x
          Those n008 days...

            A drawing challenge? I would totally do that, maybe it would help me acquire the skills to create a decent Zombie Jumpluff picture (after all, skill comes with practise). While I did more or less manage to make Jumpluff look more evil than it usually does, it does not quite look zombie-ish.
            ...or maybe I should just visit the art subforum more and read some tutorials.

            Yeah, but that thread didn't belong here, lol. I'm sure there could be a competition for it in the correct board, but not this one. This is for games. lol

              I did not miss the fact that this subforum is games only (would have been a sad thing considering all the time I'm spending here), I was just inspired to go a bit off-topic about my bad artist skills by that suggestion.

              ...and now, by justifying myself I'm drifting even more into off-topic, it's a vicous circle. Except that it isn't a circle.

                I've got an idea for a challenge. The special duo challenge!
                you go through the game with only two pokemon, however, you have to use a specific pair.
                Some Eligible Pairs:
                Any combo of 2 starters from the same gen.
                Any combo of 2 eeveelutions
                Nidoking and Nidoqueen
                Solrock and Lunatone
                Tauros and Miltank
                Any two of the same pokemon
                Any others you think would be good (please give a reason why)

                No legendaries
                *if using two of the same pokemon make one male and one female
                No cheating (except for solrock and lunatone since they are available in different versions of Gen III games. Only cheat for the otherwise unobtainable one.)

                *: optional rule

                No one make this challenge just tell me if it's good or not and if so I'll make it. Also, some good rules I may have missed cuz it looks kinda short (the rule list does).

                  In other words, we're in a circus.
                  Dunno Weavile, that's a bit of mess, and not really challenging at all, really. It is just my personal opinion, remember...

                    My last one was way too big, so it failed

                      Remember gaiz, this isn't just for challenges. This is the hub of the Challenge Forum. The Daily Bad of the S&M. The Help&Translations (which apparently were taken over by Sceptile16...um, who was he, again ?) of BW !

                      This thread is indeed magical ! *_*

                        i was just wondering why nobody will do an Orre challenge. I would definitely do them if i had an Orre game.

                        Ideas are: Shadow Pokemon Only run, Solo/Monotype/Nuzlocke runs, etc. Any ideas?

                          That would be awesome, but I've never played any of the GC Pokemon Games in my entire life, even though I've seen gameplay videos and stuff.

                          Additionally, GC games are no longer in store in Romania, not even used ones. ' But if I had the game, I'd probably do a Nuzlocke, just because.

                          I can't see a good monotype run in Colosseum because it's lacking enough Pokemon. Having one in XD sounds good though.

                            I mean, we should make a thread named "Orre Challenges", and there we will hold all of the challenges for Colosseum and XD. Is that alright ?

                            Nah, it's not common enough for them to have their own thread. It'd essentially be only one challenge. And if they ever did take off, it'd be difficult edited a first post for a ton of different types of challenges.

                            Also, I feel so bad that I have neglected my PUAP challenge. I mean...I made it. :( -horrid- White is just so distracting you guys. So distracting...and it's last on my list if I recall. lol I think Black was my next one, and that's a ROM. Imagine going to the ROM after playing the actual game. This will be a pain.

                              Hopefully I'll be actually GETTING some time to actually complete ONE challenge. >.>"
                              But right now I gotta take a break from all of them. Mainly because of exams being this week. :c
                              But afterwards I'll have plenty of time!

                                Ok, here's another idea for a challenge, the Minimalist challenge.
                                You can only pick up items that you can find lying around, or are obtained by a means OTHER than pokedollars (ex: game corner, shards). Or if you wanna make it harder, exempt that last rule. And to make it more of a challenge, you can only use pokemon that you can find in areas that can be accessed before the first gym.

                                      I've been pondering something for a while now. if a few days counts as a lengthly amount of time

                                      Why are all of the challenges here for the main series of games? I mean, I get that they're easiest to make challenges for the main games, but has anybody even tried? For example, Pokemon Rumble would probably work for quite a few of the challenges here. You could go through each stage using only one type or one species of Pokemon, or do a Nuzlocke on it. But has anybody even considered it? Keep in mind I've only read the past two pages and a bit here and there, so I might be typing about something that's already been discussed. And I'm not saying that these challenges would work, or saying that I hate all of you for not trying them, or that I would participate in them. Basically, I want to know why nobody has tried or they haven't worked. And it might be something as simple as those kinds of things (like Pokemon Rumble, etc.) just aren't compatible with challenges...

                                      No rule against spin off challenges you know. It's just that it's easier to think of main series challenges and it's also more likely people can play them. I wouldn't do a spin off challenge cause I dislike them, but no one has ever even posted one to be approved.
