Welcome to PokeCommunity’s Monthly Mini-Challenge!

What's This?
Every month, we will hold a mini-challenge that can be completed on an existing save, or in conjunction with a challenge you’re working on. There will be prizes, bragging rights, and hopefully some fun to be had as we all attempt things that are not normally part of a casual play-through or typical full-game challenge.

General rules:
- All main series games are allowed, but no hacks may be used
- All Pokemon and items used for the challenge must be obtained without hacking or trading (You can trade to evolve and for evolution item)
- You do not need to start a new game, all mini-challenges can be completed using an existing save
- All Pokemon used to complete the challenge must have been obtained on or after the start date of the challenge
- Image or video proof is required if you want to claim your points, but is not required if you merely wish to be listed as having completed the challenge
- This challenge will run January 15nd to February 14nd 2018

Yeah, that's exactly how it was intended.

Sweet I am gonna do this challenge for Black 2 with the traveller resolution I don't think I can post images of it though. Also, can I catch mons and then swap them out later for other ones, so say I catch a Psyduck or Azuril before the first gym can I swap it out for say a Staryu when it becomes available?

You don't have to start new game to complete those challenges. But if you want to, you're free to swap Pokemon as much as you want. And you'll get points each time you complete individual points of the challenge (In this case, you get 5 points each time you catch Pokemon from different gen)

I didn't see any point in keeping going with the Black 2 copy I had for the December challenge cause I was at the 8th gym and had only Espeon as a mon from a different gen
