    Wow, that sucks.

    I'd do this too, also, I think it would be fun to do something like that where the OP picks a random Pokemon or the next poster picks one, for an added challenge.

    Personally, I think it'd be better to choose what you want to level up to 100, excluding legendaries of course. But then again, I love variety, so I wouldn't mind someone choosing a Pokemon for me. And that was kinda cheap for someone to give you a male Combee. If this challenge is made and the OP/next poster gives you your Pokemon, there could be a rule for no Pokemon like Magikarp, Combee, Weedle, etc. unless you were allowed to evolve it.

      I was thinking something along the lines of a forum Gym Leader challenge. As in, users pick a type, all lvl 100s, all with their type. Then, via Wi-Fi, forum members can battle the gym leaders and, in a sense, get a badge. It'd be a first come, first serve for sign ups, but if they could not have a team ready by a predetermined date, they'd lose their slot. Thoughts?

        IDEA!!! Ding, Ding, Ding!

        Anime team challenge!

        Use the team of a trainer in any season of the anime or in any movie! You can choose out of any pokemon they have ever had! It has to be exactly the same, except the nature and gender. THAT MEANS SHINIES!

        E.G. Muk, Pikachu, Torterra, 2 Tauros (Ash)

        There is already such a thing on PC, and it would be found here.

          Sounds like tournaments and stuff. Not really a challenge. But those are done in the Wi-Fi section.

          Pick a character challenge, or something like that. It should still be active somewhere, if you'd like to try it.

          Edit: Well, yours got approved since the other seems to have died out. Good luck with it!

              NO ONE STEAL THIS

              What if, to complete the game, you had to compete other requirements, such as

              -Catch 100 Pokemon
              -Win a master rank contest
              -Get a Platinum Flag (if you can)
              -Catch Munchlax

              eH?

              Haha, the SUPAR challenge? Catch Munchlax made me lol, I must admit. I'd give it a try, however I can't do the flag stuff. And by catch 100, have 100 in the Pokedex or actually catch 100 Pokemon? And all different species, I assume?

              Also, I thought of this yesterday, however it probably won't work, depending on how the current Alphabet challenge works. But basically, you assign teams in alphabetical order. You can choose how many you want, but say I was the first to sign up and wanted a team of 4. I'd have to use Abamosnow, Abra, Absol, and Aerodactyl. The next person might sign up wanting 6, so they'd have Aggron, Aipom, Alakazam, Altaria, Ambipom, and Ampharos. I think it'd be cool. :> Obviously legendaries would be skipped though, unless the OP allows it. It doesn't really matter to me. Sometimes I do feel bad that they're excluded from challenges, even though they make the game easy. But that doesn't mean someone should go making a legendary challenge.

                haha, its harder than it sounds, 4 trees all with a 1 percent chance of finding it, pure hell. I honeyed everyday to find one on diamond, they have generators, but you need your secret id.
                Also, I really don't get how you're reffering to the alphabet challenge (no offense, its probably me, not reading thoroughly)


                Also, I did mean actually capture 100 different species of Pokemon.

                1 trade would be allowed, but the Pokemon should be from the region's dex and traded as an egg so its the challenger's OT, (ex: If I wanted a Porygon-Z before the Pokemon League in D/P it would be legal to trade a larvitar egg from Diamond)

                So can I post a thread of this? (I'll fix some stuff of course) Any other suggestions for the SUPAR Challenge?

                *and you would have to have all 10 Pokethealon records instead of the contest one if your playing HG/SS, but I'll start with one for DP AND think of a HG/SS one as well

                Sure, as long as you're participating. And you don't have to call it that, haha. That was just my stupidity. :B Another suggestion might be to use only Pokeballs. And don't do separate threads for different games, just post their specifications in one thread.

                Getting all those Pokethlon things seems a little too much though, as getting to the Master Rank isn't nearly that crazy. And one Master Rank or each category in Master Rank?

                  I think this would be cool. Would you allow people to evolve? Because I have a feeling someone can get shafted with the right Pokemon.

                  Still using my example team of Abamosnow, Abra, Absol, and Aerodactyl, I'd have to get Snover for Abamosnow. But since Abra is in that alphabetical listing, then no, I couldn't evolve it. Kind of like the random challenge in a way. So, like the random challenge, people could get stuck with Kakuna and such... :x

                    I didn't find it that hard, the Pokethaleon records can be broken by intermeditate level poketheletes, its not like cy young's wins record in baseball or something that can never be broken. . I actually find Pokethealon easier than contests btw.
                    I'll just write Gen 4 SUPAR challenge

                      Someone should make something like Swapping Team challenge. In start you have team of 4, and after every gym you need to box 1 your team member and capture & train new Poke.

                        That's really similar to the Gym Leader Challenge, where you have to use the same type as every gym leader.

                          What about the Ultimate Nuzclocke Challenge? Yeah I know that would be a pain to complete, but I still see many people completing it. I might make it if I have time to do it.

                            I thought about that one, but I mean, i dunno, it doesn't have the same effect for me. In the other Ultimates, your team had the same qualities, and you bonded together more, sometimes with the same Pokemon. I just don't get that effect with a nuzlocke.

                              Someone should make something like Swapping Team challenge. In start you have team of 4, and after every gym you need to box 1 your team member and capture & train new Poke.

                              Well, you wouldn't necessarily have to switch to the gym leader's type though, so I guess it could be made.

                                what about a challenge based upon either:

                                -the pokemon's gender ratio (ie only pokemon with a 75/25 gender ratio?)

                                -Egg group?

                                -Pokemon based on the same animal or group of animals?

                                Gender ratio is new, but sounds kinda weird. Elaborate? Egg group has been done before, and I want to say animal has, but I don't think there are currently any challenge of the like up, so that one's up for a go.

                                  well basically, you can only choose pokemon that have the same male/female ratio..
                                  Such as clefairy and Jigglypuff are both 25/75.
                                  I dont think theres that much to it...

                                  and for the animals, im not sure, but for instance reptiles.. they could use Feraligatr, sceptile, arbok?
                                  Im not sure how many usable groups there could be though, and itd robably come down to set teams :/

                                    I have two ideas:

                                    1. You must pick a letter at the beginning of the challenge. You may only use pokemon that's species name starts with that letter.

                                    2. You must pick a theme (i.e. pigs) and use only pokemon that fit into that theme.
