    How about playing Pokemon Emerald with a specific "theme"? :P

    Hmmm...and now you've given me an idea. Emerald features the (indirect) conflict between the sea and the land, and where the sea and land meet is the coast.

    Most water types would be eligible of course. Besides that though, I can see Geodude, Nosepass, Grimer, Sandshrew, Lileep, Anorith, and Castform as candidates.

    a few pages ago, someone did a "sci-fi space" theme, you can look at that
    last page I started a "medicine" theme, if you look at other gen HMWYBS, some people have weird themes.

    are you gonna ask people for pokes or grab your own?

    Picking my own I think. I'm open to suggestions, but I want to keep the 'aesthetic' of the theme, and not make it practically a mono-water run. At the moment I'm looking at Swampert (the wetlands), Sandslash (the beach), Graveler (the cliffs), Cradily (the fossils), and Muk (the pollution), with a space for a HM mule. Thinking about movesets now.

    typically HM slave are not included in challenge considerations....
    so go ahead and pick another one

    and sandslash is hardly a "beach" pokemon, try pelipper or corsola or stamie

    Beaches are made of sand aren't they :P

    Pelipper is provisionally in, the planned team is up in the RMT section. Corsola could fit, as the reef, but I don't really want to run a squad (gonna have enough levelling to do with breeding as it is) so it becomes a case of who to drop.

    Might as well start one in Emerald
    My challenge is to have ALL of these types in my team for the game (the pokemon type, NOT the move types.)

    So, let's go!
    I want these types in my team: (Underlined types means they are taken)
    - Fire
    - Water
    - Electric
    - Grass
    - Flying
    - Poison
    - Bug
    - Fighting
    - Normal
    I want dual-type pokemons if possible. (Example: if Dark and Ghost were in the asked types, then Sableye would be in.)

    I'll let you guys choose my pokemons. No restriction/trades please.
    1- Blaziken (Fire/Fighting)
    2- Ludicolo (Water/Grass)
    3- Manectric (Electric)
    4- Dodrio (Normal/Flying)
    5- Dustox (Bug/Poison)
    6- Flygon (Ground/Dragon)

    Metalhead, I'll start you out with Fire/Fighting in the form of your starter: take a Torchic that evolves into the dual-typed Combusken and Blaziken.

    Metalhead, use a Manectric for Electric.
    When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Metalhead for Normal/Flying take a Doduo. To evolve it has to use Tri Attack to cause a freeze, a paralysis and a burn.

    (no other combination really for Normal)

    Metalhead9838772, for Bug/Poison, take a Dustox. It may evolve freely, but it must keep Moonlight and Whirlwind in its moveset.

    Thanks guys, but I still need one last Pokemon. You decide who it will be, but can't be any of the types I already have (example: I have a Ludicolo and a Dodrio (Grass/Water and Normal/Flying). This means I can't have a Tropius.)

    Cheers!

    Metalhead, take Flygon. Ground/Dragon which you don't have yet.
    FireRed Scramble

    SoulSilver

    HeartGold

    We can ask questions and get ideas, right?

    I didn't hear about Nuzlockes and other challenges until a while ago, but i've been toying with ideas. My first was something like a 'Contestlocke,' that involved 'mon and contests (because I LOOOVE Gen III contests), but my Emerald is fried (internal clock is busted, save data is fine) and i've lost my copies of Ruby and Sapphire (i'm not an emulator kinda girl). Also, while I prefer Emerald, contests don't come up until later in the game, but R/S contests come up a little earlier.

    I was thinking something really dumb like "can't use it in battle until it wins Master Rank contests," but that makes no sense.
    Or "if it loses a contest, then you box/release it forever," but honestly contests are sometimes just totally random.

    Pretty much, something that involves contests, and preferably a Roselia and a Milotic thrown in.

    Alternative, only "beautiful"/"ugly" pokemon allowed.

    Not sure if you're still looking for ideas for this, but how about selecting a contest type and only allowing your pokemon to learn moves of that type? (HMs being an exception, of course)

    I'm starting an egg run on my Sapphire.

    Rules:
    1a- I may only use the 6 pokemon hatched from the eggs I receive .
    1b- HM slaves are only allowed if no one on my team can learn a particular HM.
    2- No grinding.
    3- I may not purchase items.

    With no grinding, I'm sort of just flying through the game o.O
    Roxanne wiped me once, but I managed to kill her the second time.
    Brawly I got on my first try. To be fair, Scyther was born with Wing Attack, which really helped.

    Team at the start:
    Sassy / Pickup / level 5
    Quirky / Early Bird / level 5
    Bashful / Shed Skin / level 5
    Timid / Levitate / level 5
    Serious / Natural Cure / level 5
    Serious / Swarm / level 5

    Team after Roxanne:
    level 9 level 9 level 7 level 10 level 7 level 7

    Team after Brawly:

    level 10 level 11 level 10 level 12 level 10 level 11

    Egg run part 2:
    Mauville gym took a while because of that evil Magneton >.< Luckily, when I had originally bred these I had put some crazy moves on them. Dratini and Kangaskhan had Flamethrower, so it was much easier than it could have been.

    Team after Wattson:
    level 18 level 19 level 19 level 18 level 15 level 18

    edit - I ended up getting past Flannery and Norman, but completely lost interest in this run. It's been replaced with a Sapphire Nuzlocke :P

    I wanna do one of these for Ruby. The theme is going to be food, so you're gonna have to explain why the Pokemon you give fits in with the food. I can't trade, no type overlaps, and I'd like a starter. And all Pokemon need a food nickname.

    Too Funk to Druck, take a Torchic. Food-related because it is based on a chicken/bird/something, obviously. Name it FriedCucco. It can evolve into Combusken freely but must solo three swimmers before evolving into Blaziken.

    Too Funk to Druck, help yourself to a nice big serving of PorkChopz the Grumpig. In keeping with its name, PorkChopz must know at least one Fighting type move.

    TooFunktoDruck, take a Skitty based on the rumors of Chinese restaurants using Cat meat. It can evolve at any point once Wattson has been defeated. Name it Szechuan.
