Alright! So for a long time we used the CI&D for all our random talk rather than using it for Challenge ideas like it was intended. So I'm splitting it so we have this thread which we can use for regular... well chit chat I suppose haha. If it doesn't work out we can always go back to the old method.

So how is everyone doing on their challenges? I've put a temporary hold on my monotypes to 'complete' my storage copy, X. So far I've almost completed the Kalos Pokedex, and I'd like to finish the National Pokedex and then move on to taking on the Battle Maison. But I'll probably get bored of that before I finish, which means I'll be back to doing my monotypes eventually!

What a funny coincidence, I too am working on my Kalos dex right now, haha! I completed my Central Kalos Dex already, and am currently working on the Coastal Kalos Dex. I'm not going for the full National Dex though, I only need the Oval Charm for the time being. Aside from that, I've been working on my OTGA Water team, which is going swimmingly (no pun intended).

Let's see… For Black 2 I have the Time Warp challenge, which I do want to get back to, but there's also my Red Mono-Color on White that I haven't touched in a couple weeks since arriving in Castelia. And I still have the Favorites Challenge on Y, which I keep telling myself "oh I'll get back to this" but I haven't cared enough to.

In the meantime, my Heart Gold Wedlocke - my main priority, I beat Lance in and will be starting Kanto soon. Training in this game blows, though. =(

    Gym Leader Challenge 'til September ends. Also might finish a run for that anime challenge if it comes up soon and given I have time to do so. Sounds exciting with the dice rolls/rng. #MankeyBFL

    edit: that, and a ton of work to do =/

      Well let me see about the challenges I signed up for ~ which is a lot xD

      I completed The ones that got away challenge but I am sorta lazy and I cannot seem to force myself to post the update - will do it sometime later today xD

      I got through victory road and through whole elite 4 and bam my super awesome emulator decided to glitch on me and freeze - when did I last save? At the beginning of the victory road >_< So I have to go through whole road and elite 4 again - which is making me kinda meh about playing anything on vba for a while until I fix it >_< Which means that I am going to have to take a break from challenges I signed up for on GBA games for now until I figure out what is going on with it .-.

      I'm in the process of getting the Challenge Index all updated, so if any of you notice an inconsistency like wrong name or supporter tier, please let me know. So far I have cut out all the dead challenges that were still listed there. So if you're challenge isn't listed it's probably because I haven't added new ones just yet.

      Ohey, a DCC here. >__>

      Well I'm almost done with a Random Challenge on White. My team sucks, but that just makes it all the more challenging. I feel like doing more challenges, but since challenges are yet another form of procrastination for me, doing too many would mean I'd never get any actually important stuff done.

      I really wanna do The Ones That Got Away at least, but I have yet to receive a team. *Sits and waits quietly*

      I hope you enjoy the team I gave you. I think it's got some really cool Pokemon on it.

        I'm working on my Ultimate Fire Mono right now. Still in Leafgreen though, but I've made good progress. I'm working my way through Silph Co. now. Any other challenges I've signed up for on the back burner for now.

          I finally got around and completed that nuzlocke without my emulator crashing :o I am so happy right now ~ It was such a long and interesting run especially when it came to the water routes and doupes clause ~ but I managed to get cool team in the end with only one death against last elite 4 member and one backup left in my pc- which never happens to me o.o

          Yeah, thanks man. Surprisingly, Turtwig's a beast. Razor Leaf'd his way through the first gym despite the type disadvantage.

          Torterra is pretty much my favorite starter in terms of effectiveness. He's bulky and has good offensive types, I love it.

          Yeah, I saw that. Overleveled and still ends up with only one remaining member against the Champion (one of the more infamous Champions I should add), with only one Pokémon remaining weak to Water? And 25 deaths?! You really were cut out on this one it seemed. x(

          I need to restart my Silver random challenge. The battery was messed up and didn't save it from before when I started, but I've gotten it fixed since. It's still a little jittery of a cartridge though. It freezes when you tap it. :(

          Your best bet would be to ask over in the General Quick Trades thread, or making a thread of your own in the Quick Trades forum.

          Oh gosh Nuzlockes. I just remembered how much I suck at them.

          A lot of my Pokemon end up dying in the middle of training. Mainly because I barely ever pay attention when I'm mindlessly grinding in the wild; I just let my fingers do the work while I watch TV or something. As a result, I never notice my Pokemon's HP dwindling until it's too late. -__-

          Damn right I forgot! ;) I've got the moon and sun working against me when it comes to updating things. I'll give that puppy a rehaul on Monday since I'm off. Sound good to you?

          It's like a combo of forgetting and being busy. I forget, then remember, but I'm too busy to do anything haha. Plus when I run events and HAVE to update them, they get priority. Really, majority of regulars here are much better challenge owners than I am. I'm pretty bad. :P

            Ooo new event :3 I love events so much :o (Even though I participated in only two so far lol - One failed due to some complications and me not having time for playing and one I actually completed twice xD) ~ this should be fun :3 I like this one so much *gets to work :3* See ya in a while when I am done with some of those challenges xD *goes outside, prepares icecream, puts on the music on youtube and starts playing games* :3

            Oh yeah nuzlockes... They are painful for me :o For whatever reason I always lose my temper with them and I always lose a ton of pokemon for unnecessary reasons - Like randomized nuzlockes - Wild wobbuffets in the wild - killers of my pokemon! D: Oh and the joy when your opponent seem to get all the hacks and crits on the world and you get none D:
