    Earlier games, does that mean Generation 4, or 3, or what? And are you finished when you beat the E4, or whatever sidequests after game is finished? I would obviously not be applicable for receiving a chip for the contest, but I do have a webcam and other cameras available

    I really like this idea - it injects a somewhat new challenge into the pokemon game, and is marginally more flexible than the Nuzlocke challenge, which, although fascinating, I just don't have the commitment for!

    I do have a thought to interject, and that is that I think this contest should be centred around D/P rather than Plat/HG/SS.
    It is easier to find used copies of Diamond and Pearl; I myself have a copy of Diamond that I am happy to reset for this challenge, if you choose to make it international.

    The typing limitations present a problem - do you mean, to catch for the Team?
    Or to catch for the box? What if we were to come across a shinymon that was of a type we already had?

    I'm pretty sure he means we can't catch Pokemon that we already have the type for. If you find the Shiny, you have to decide what is more important for you: the shiny or winning the challenge

    It is an unlikely scenario, but possible.
    And I doubt I'd come across one anyway.

    Despite all my cross-cartridge breeding, I'm still yet to hatch one; so why would I expect to catch a new'un?

    For me the biggest challenge would be not trading. Especially if this extends to GTS.

    Really? I never really traded until I was finished with the main quest... I guess it differs from person to person how we like to run through our games

    I was talking to Jesse last night and we came up with a few other ideas.

    Awards for:

    Fastest time
    Weirdest party
    Weakest party

    Limits:

    One of each type (discussed earlier)
    Pokemon provided by forum farmers
    Pokemon limited to a pool of X Pokemon

    Prizes:

    Special Pokemon egg (forum) for participating
    Ribbon for profile
    Credits for winning and completing the challenge
    DS game for top speed runner.

    Challenge will likely use Diamond/Pearl games and will run quarterly.

    This means we'll be allowed to trade to get Pokémon from Farm Events during the challenge? Cool I like the game choice as well.

    Yes, it could work that way.
