    Well, then I suppose any moves can be used until you get the first HM, then you have to keep using 1 move(or 1 HM + random move) until you get the other HMs. If a certain Pokemon can't learn HMs, then you have to find another Pokemon that can. Pokemons that can't learn HMs can't be used in the challenge.

    I actually did a single pokemon challenge and not knowing it when I was six with a Clefairy.


    Hardcore I could never do though, I get too attached too easily.

    However, I made up a challenge called

    "The Mono-Color Challenge" basically, you can only use pokemon of one color (yes, even shiny pokemon are included, in other words, you can't use your shiny dragonite if your color is orange, but you can if it's green.)

    I have a feeling Platinum is going to be my challenge game once I do a complete run-through and trade my team to it.

    And of course, who cannot forget a "theme team challenge" where you have to use the team of a pokemon anime/manga/game character I once tried that with May's team one time when playing Ruby.

    There's a very similar challenge already on the first page: "limited items mode" where you can't use any non-essential items.

    I have an idea. How about a "No Hold-Items mode"? You can't give your Pokemon any hold items that can affect the battle. You can only let it hold items if you are going in a Contest.(the scarves)

    Or a "Gender mode". You can only use one gender of Pokemon. If you pick genderless, you can only use genderless Pokemon or if you pick male, you can only use male and in female you can only use female Pokemon. You can use the other genders as HM slaves, though.

    You can't forget the classic 'Speedrun'.

    Make it through the game under a certain amount of time.

    That simple.

    I hack pokemon with my AR. Don't like it? Tough.

    FFIII DS sucks, and MMX6 sucks even more, but MMX7 is just crap.

    It is said that when it roars, a volcano erupts somewhere around the globe.

    ENTEI embodies the passion of magma. This POKEMON is thought to have been born in the eruption of a volcano. It blasts fire that consumes all it touches.

    ENTEI learns Roar at level 15.

    There's a similar mode in the first post: "No unnecessary items", which extends the idea to all items.

    How did I not put this down? I'm off to edit the first post right now. Thanks. Also, as soon as I complete me current run through (ie, when I find a moon stone to evolve Clefairy and take on the E4), I'm going to do Gym challenger mode.

    I like no heal games, myself. I find them challenging. Try playing a No-heal in G/S/C too. Both D/P/P and G/S/C No healers are good.

    How about:
    Overkill mode -When you enter a new route, you must catch any new Pokemon that you haven't caught yet, and you must train every single Pokemon you catch at around the same level. For instance, by the time you beat Roark, you should have your starter, a Starly, a Bidoof, a Shinx, a Budew, a Zubat, a Pachirisu, a Geodude, an Abra, an Onix, a Machop, a Cricketot, and a Psyduck. By the time you beat whatever the 8th Gym Leader's name is, you should have a whole bunch of Pokemon, and they should ALL be around Lv40-50 because you should be training EVERY SINGLE POKEMON YOU CATCH.

    Overkill mode sounds fun. I'll do it when the universe ends (i.e. Platinum comes out in Australia).

    I have two ideas (no names):

    - your team has to be all one pokemon. ie: 6 ponytas. However, they can all have different moves. (medium?)


    - your entire team can only have one type of move. ie: A team with all water moves. (hard) This could be adjusted to one type of move for each pokemon.

    My friends and I do what we call the Marco Polo method. We lable the first eight boxes for the first eight gyms and try to fill the boxes with pokemon before we reach that gym. Then we empty out our team spots except for our starter pokemon and without looking at the screen choose five pokemon to fill the slots and use them to fight the gyms.

    Overkill mode is the most boring thing I can possibly think of.


    95% of all teens would cry if thy saw Miley Cyrus jumping off of a building, paste this into your sig if you have brown hair.

    I use "uber" Pokemon, I calculate stat values, I breed my way to perfection, and I care about natures. I catch my pokemon and throw them away like a piece of garbage if they are not worthy of my greatness, and I treat them like brainless drones instead of individuals. If you use this philosophy, copy and paste this into your signature. (Started by Swalot=yes)

    I do that anyways. xD If I end up having to use more than that number, I just turn off the game and retry.

    You forgot this classic as well.

    'Imitation' - Pick one trainer in the game. Get the same team he/she has. Clear the game. You'll probably have to trade BTW.

    One example is the series of youtube videos where a player assembled Red's team and cleared the game with it.

    Here's one:

    Obsessive Compulsive

    You must have 5 of every item that can be bought, and all ones found on the floor must be tossed. (Medium)

    I have left Serebii for greener pastures. These pastures, to be specific.
