What do Chinchillas have to do with easter?

Anyhow, I suggest we do a Faction Nuzlocke challenge, in which those who signed up entered factions. If you whited out, then you're "dead", I'd also like to have checkpoint challenges along the way, in which the faction that completed the challenge gets to take 1 Pokemon (of their choosing) from each member on the losing faction's team.

    I'm getting a 4th gen or 5th gen game and a DS for my birthday this month. If no one does anything with this idea by then I'll make it. I just don't wanna break any rules since I can't compete.

    It's not a big deal that it's only 4th gen and up, if we couldn't discriminate against some games prefix wouldn't be an option for when a new topic is made

    Why does that make me think of a Battle Factory-ish Challenge? Like...you have to use a member of the gym leader's team when you win. Something like that. Quirks can be worked out later, but yeah, something similar.

    Eeeh, not really. It's basically just teams competing in Nuzlockes, with each challenger as a member of their respective team. Each team is trying to claim victory by sabotaging/outplaying the other team, so that their challengers white out and "die". Sort of hard to explain, I know, perhaps I can consult the Myrrhman on this. Also, perhaps the challenge could have reminded you of the battle factory, since "Faction" and "Factory" share a prefix, eh?

      So what you're talking about is basically a sabotagelocke but with teams instead of 1vs1? Sounds interesting, I might actually end my Pokemon hiatus for that.

      You were the one who came up with the original concept for it, (iirc), I simply modified it :P

        I came up with it? "Stumbled across" is a bit closer to the truth, I'm not that innovative

          I though I was the one who "stumbled across" the Sabotagelocke? I even remember asking Karpman and 560cool. if they wanted to Sabotagelocke with me :/

          Though if we do it, I'm in.

            I'm not sure, it's been a while. Like it matters, fact is that none of us invented it.

                  We might as well might make it some kind of event challenge (never got around to play the last one, whoops), considering how popular it is currently seeming to become...

                    Been done before, you can try to revive it, though!

                    The thing is, we don't want to do events all the time. They're not as special when we do have one if we have one like once every other week. And Syd said that an event was being planned for May (I think), so there's really no reason to make one this month, we don't want it turning into a monthly thing...

                      I have time, I never said when I'd like it to happen. Actually I'd like late May or early June a lot better than right now.

                        Not to be selfish but the Sabatogelocke should be in Setember, 'cause you know, that could be an awesome birthday present.

                        Also, I'm running out of challenges to do, it's like soooo dull. Maybe because I'm spending my entire free-time trying to get a Timid/Modest 31 IV HP,Sp.Atk,Speed Victini and I'm on my 100 time but that can't be it.....

                          Well, I mean, not to be rude or anything, but I think that I've done more challenges than you have, and I am definitely not running out of challenges to do. So how are you? Have you beaten all the UMC's? Because if you have, then why am I trying to be the first?

                          Lol. maybe he's not obsessed with monotypes like us, dude. lol.

                          I have to say the fifth gen is harder for monotypes because there are only 156 pokemon (well, less, really) available before you fight the Elite Four the first time - it's kinda like the first gen all over again in terms of availability. Which apparently was the point lol.

                            didn't know Dratini counted lol

                            so would someone have to use it as an NFE, because Dragonite defintley isn't a snake

                            Between doing the Hall of Fame challenge on HeartGold and White for all generations, doing Masuda method for a shiny Treecko, SRing for a shiny Kyogre, and trying to complete Black so that I can start revamping the Favorite Challenge to be gen V exclusive, I am booked with challenges...or at least, challenging things.

                            Also Chaos, I don't know how you can run out of challenges...there are plenty floating around. Could redo some. Or take a break until something interesting comes your way.

                            Finally ready to do all Original 151 Solos on the 1st generation games. 8D Man this is going to be awesome. I've already technically got one down...Dewgong. (Speaking of which, finally finished that Ultimate. I'm so happy.)
                            I wonder how long the 151 will take?

                              Something dawned on me
                              When people take on an ultimate challenge and they do kanto, didn't the LG-FR people work harder than the R/B/Y people? I just played Yellow for the Summer challenge cause I haven't played it in years and I remembered 'Oh hey this is easy because there are no natures I can just capture whatever I want and when I train it either way it will be awesome' while when playing Leaf Green I had to go through like 20 Caterpies before I found a modest one. If I decided to not be anal about it I could have wound up with an adament Butterfree and maybe the challenge would have been a lot harder since a majority of my atks are special atk

                              Just a thought D:

                              Doesn't it just contribute to the challenge? After all, challenges are meant to be...challenging. :P Picking your game can either make it a little easier or a little harder.

                              In other news, just defeated Red with Machamp. 2 down, 149 to go.

                              This may just be an idea, but what about a project challenge. If you visit other areas apart from GPGD, some other places (such as Art Gallery) have projects like Isometric design, or pixel Pokedex. So maybe if we challengers did something like that, it could be fun! It'd have to be something big, but not too big. Something similar to Inferno's current Solo 151 challenge, but different or something. :)

                              Also Sydina Sydian, aren't you also trying to SR for a Shiny Virizion as well? :/

                              I'm so busy right now and it's hard to do challenges. Well at least the holidays are next week so I hope to have them all done during those two weeks. Good luck SRing Virizion Sydian, Siggy found it shiny when she first clicked on it. I've got to learn to multitask better. I need to be doing challenges and be on the irc at the same time. I'm also trying to Masuda a Charmander.
