    2. I wonder too ... Just hope it's awesome

      Wooo!!! I finally had some free time, so I went through all the challenges that I've ever done, and all the ones that I want to do. I compiled them into a nice little list too!

      According to my calculations, I have completed 56 Monotype Challenges, 20 Solo Challenges on Red/Blue, and 26 other random challenges. Unfortunately, they won't all fit in a signiture, so I'm just storing them on my personal notepad. That means, I have finished a total of 102 Challenges!

      hmmm, that is a lot. Maybe I should count mine too.

      76 Monotypes, 13 Solos, 2 Favorites, 1 Ones that Got Away, 4 Username, 4 Trio-Species, 1 Duo, 1 Special Pairs, 1 Beginning Letter (N), 1 Dual-Type, 2 Pokebros, and 4 event challenges...I'm prolly missing a couple other ones, this is just off the top of my head.

      Well, counting those, I have done...110 challenges! Hehe Myrrhman. Although you are doing good with those RBY solos, so you'll prolly overtake me soon.

      I'm almost done with Dark type on Black, though. Just waiting till Winter so I can get the Substitute TM (stupid snow...) for Scrafty (Focus Punch FTW!).

        I will have you yet!

        And now that Winter break is starting (today was the last day of classes, one week of finals now!), I'll be sure to hit the challenges hard this month. I REALLY need to finish up the monotypes. Just have a little over half of the 4th gen ones and all 17 of the 5th. I still haven't bothered looking for a good ROM for B/W.

        I could never count the challenges I've done. I did so many as a kid and I do a lot now, and it'd just take too long. I doubt it's over a hundred, but if I had to estimate, it's probably around 50 or 60. I can barely keep track of what I've even done since the Challenge forum showed up, lol. And you think that would help me!

        I feel so popular. People still contemplate my gender, haha. Perhaps I should go back to the theme I was using this time last year. It had my picture in it. :P

        Oh, and on the subject of the games I chose for the event, I went for the traditional red, green, and white, if you didn't already figure that out haha. I know Gold is a Christmas color, but eh, I just didn't see it fitting. Pearl makes me think of pink, Crystal makes me think of blue, Platinum makes me think of gray, so that's why those aren't in there, event though the actual metals/whatever would suffice for the color white. But eh. And I know Silver isn't White, but a gen II game had to fit in there somehow, right?!

          Lucky me, other than monotypes and the such, I pretty much started doing challenges when the challenge forum came into existence. So, I backtracked to the very beginning of the forum, and looked at every thread to see if i'd done it yet (or if I would like to do it, in which case I hyperlinked it in my sig, so i can go back and remember what it was all about.)

          And to be fair, last year, you had both a girl AND a boy picture, both in the same kind of format. I know because I was wondering which you were riiiiight before that happened. Lucky me, I drove down to your school and found you, so now I know.

          You're not safe

              Wow.

              PC was being slow today, so I thought "I know! I'll go register on another pokemon forum! Then, I can see if they have any new challenges that I could try out/bring back to this forum!

              I proceed to register on the bulbapedia forums. Not a challenge in sight. I didn't try THAT hard to find them, but they weren't in any obvious place.

              Registered on serebii's forum. Found the challenges! This is their setup. Every generation has 4 challenges. The first is a monotype (damn straight it is.), the second is a scramble, the third is a Nuzlocke, and the fourth is one called "hit me with your best shot", which is essentially where all the other challenges go. Psssssssssh what lameos.

              In summary, PC is the best challenge forum and will ALWAYS be the best challenge forum!!! GO PC!

              Don't mean to offend anyone if they prefer a different forum, just stating my opinion.

              Yeah Myrrh, I saw Serebii's Challenge forum once and lol'd. Means a lot that you'd say that about PC's Challenge forum though. :')

              Oh yeah! I was using a Selena Gomez avatar and then my pic in the sig, lol. And if you came to my school, you should have said hi. When did you come down here anyway? ...Why would you want to...other than to see, you know, the amazing Marching Southerners. -cough-

                ... Really? I can't believe I didn't know what Selena Gomez looked like back then. And I didn't actually come, I get quite a heavy dose of the Pride of the Southland band here at UT.

                Hey, just a quiet post to say, please vote for me as the Best Challenger in Member of the Year thread. The other members nominated are mondays suck (again) and Sooyun (where's myrrhman...).

                linky link link

                Sydian, could I cast a vote for myrrhman if I wanted to? I feel like he should have been nominated... read the rules, it's sad.

                  I thought of an idea.

                  For all the super popular challenges (Monotype, Solo, Scramble, Nuzlocke, really any challenge that seems to get revived a whole bunch), we should make a generic account called like 'PC Challenge Forum' or something, and let a few of the challenge regulars all have the password for it. That way, it would reduce the amount of complaining about lack of updating/threads won't lose interest because the OP never updates.

                  Oh my god you guys, Blaze Black/Volt White is amazing.

                  Increased difficulty levels + all 649 pokemon + a huge variety of pokemon early on makes for the best challenge game ever.

                  I thoroughly recommend this hack to anybody who is bored of easy challenges.

                  EDIT: Also, I fully support the Challenges Account thing. As long as people don't abuse it (I dunno why they would though).

                    I find it absolutely hilarious I have been nominated again in that category and am actually being voted for. Absolutely hilarious.

                    Now, I would vote in MOTY if that whole thing wouldn't be looking like it requires quite an amount of effort, so I probably am not going to bother - laziness shall prevail!

                      Well, today is Monday and it sucks
                      I agree that mhyrrman should be in MotY
                      Anyways, I support PC Challenge Account, or SydianBot or whatever; I just think only the most regulars should have the password though

                        I thoroughly recommend this hack to anybody who is bored of easy challenges.

                        EDIT: Also, I fully support the Challenges Account thing. As long as people don't abuse it (I dunno why they would though).
                        I will definitely check this out. But I hate B/W, so Pooie.

                        As for the Challenge Account, I personally would rather have myrrhman inputting words of wisdom all over the forum, I really don't see any need for the challenge bot to NOT have very, very few posts, mainly thread starters, with occasional answers to people's questions if the bot sees someone asked a question and is logged in as the bot.

                        Yeah, that struck me as sort of odd, too. I haven't seen you around the challenge forum like at all this year.

                        I would vote too, but I agree, its soooooooo much work.

                        MotY sucks this year. I'm going to be honest, picking three people as the Best Challenger nominees just...sucked. There are more than three deserving people, and I seriously hate the entire nomination system this year. That's all I'm going to say on that though. And I tried to avoid nominating people that placed in top three last year, but I think I ****ed that up cause mondays suck won it last year? I cannot for the life of me remember. So just don't vote for him!! lol

                        For all the super popular challenges (Monotype, Solo, Scramble, Nuzlocke, really any challenge that seems to get revived a whole bunch), we should make a generic account called like 'PC Challenge Forum' or something, and let a few of the challenge regulars all have the password for it. That way, it would reduce the amount of complaining about lack of updating/threads won't lose interest because the OP never updates.
                        It sounds like one of those things good on paper, but in practice, I don't know. I don't really advise a bunch of people sharing the same account. Someone could go crazy and spam porn or something and since everyone's IPs would be attached to that account, your mains could get in trouble and banned as well. I mean, it's unlikely, but I have seen some good members get hacked and banned because of what the hacker posted. Plus that's a lot of threads to restart.

                        SydianBot lmao. I'd punch it for trying to steal my name. That's obviously what it's doing! Imposter.

                        There is a way, however, to change the OP to become someone else's post I think. Larry did it in a thread once, and I think Alternative has done it. Has to do with merging. I could try that and see if it works? But first I'd need to know who wants to take charge of which challenge. Or there's the alternative of me updating all those chal-- lol no thanks that's too many. :(

                          OK I have an idea for a Team Plasma Run. I want to get some help on it and people say this is the place. Right now the idea is that
                          1.You may look for any pokemon species that you want but may not look for a certain gender or a shiny/pokerus.
                          2.You must give human names to all pokemon.
                          3.There will be a point system where if a pokemon loses all of it's 'liberation points' it must be released or set in a released box FOREVER!
                          The point system isn't quite figured out yet so i'm looking for someone to help. PM me if your intrested and I'll choose one person to help out. I would choose more but... it would be hard to not disagree with most stuff.
                          Edit: You don't need Black or White to do this. It is just a challenge. You can do it on BLue if you want.

                              Train Wingull to lvl 35 or something and OHKO Magneton with Water Gun or something. Remember Magneton doesn't resist watertypes

                                I know it's neutral to water, but Water gun is weak and Magneton is fully evolved already, also it'll take a long while to train to such an high level. What are the exact Mud sport mechanics? Does it stay when you switch out or get killed?

                                It's possible, but it involved whoever wants to take over it making a lul post. Also please don't be Andy and have no idea what a lul post is. XD

                                I actually came here thinking it was the christmas challenge thread, but I was msitaken. I came here also to update a nuzlocke which I will do soon since I started one again and yeah. BLAAHQHQHQHQDIUGWFKJ

                                Ignore me, please. :3

                                  Better hope you get good luck with Supersonic.

                                  Maybe it should be called Sydborg instead.
