    Another week, another challenge!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    For this week's challenge, we are testing your decision making skills. That is, we are challenging your choices.

    All six Pokemon on your team must hold a Choice item, be it Band, Scarf, or Specs. Now, you may be wanting to get rid of some of these items. Well, you can. The moves Trick and Switcheroo are allowed for this challenge. You may not use the ability Klutz. You are also not allowed to use Fling. I think that pretty much covers placement of items/moves and abilities that effect them. Oh, I guess I forgot Bestow. Uh. You can use Bestow since it's a very cute move. '3'

    In order to be placed in the Hall of Fame for this ladder challenge, you must achieve a Glicko2 of 1900 or more with a deviation of 100 or less. Best of luck!

    By the way, we've decided that this'll be the last challenge, unless there's overwhelming support for it to continue. So this is your last chance to get into the hall of fame if you haven't already, so keep that in mind as this next week passes by~

    You've all done great so far, though!

    If you guys all want to participate as well, we would likely be more inclined to keep this going. The issue thus far has been that activity has died down a notable amount since this first started. While both Starships and I feel this is inevitable with any new project, the decrease in activity has been so large that it feels fruitless to keep this going.

    However, if all of you guys do want to try and keep this thing alive, it's something that we can discuss and come up with a decision on. It's a possibility that the challenges won't die out, but I won't say it's guaranteed. For now, keep on going! There is still an active challenge~

    While I don't currently participate in these regularly, I'd certainly like to see them continued. Hopefully when assignments die down I can actually start getting involved in them

    A part of the reason I havent been joining in is I'm in the last few weeks of school and I need to put most of my attention to that + Some of the round stipulations weren't the most exciting (sorry). Once my summer starts Ill be glad to retrythese

    Continue them please! (Even though I get lazy halfway and stop after 7~~ battles). Hopefully we get more interesting challenges next time which will increase the amount of players attempting the challenge :)

    I agree with JoshuaMunoz! I really enjoy the ladder challenges and would like to have them keep going.

    How about a deal? We end them now but bring them back sometime in the future? I'm just a little cautious about continuing them given that someone said they can start a project after this ends and I'd rather not slow that process.

    I feel that is an appropriate compromise.

    The Hall of Fame is set in stone. I hope everyone had as much fun with these as Starships and I did! Stay tuned for next time.
