    Sign ups are complete!

    Stay tuned for the Randomizer Settings we will use,

    and when we will start the challenge!

    Thanks, and may the RNG be in your favor. ;)

    NOTE TO EVERYONE:
    Do not select spoink if you get it. It starts off with explosion. I found that out a few years ago

    I mean, if you're way over (judgement call), then yes. It shouldn't be a real issue. It's just to try to prevent people from grinding grinding grinding like crazy.

    Hence the challenge!

    But I think we should try to figure out the expected in-game time for each leg and add 50% to get the max time allowed.

    That would actually advantage us considerably, since you would always challenge each other instead of us.

    True. This isn't really supposed to be competitive. In that case, we might want to randomize the trainer Pokemon to make things as crazy as we possibly can (although facing a non-NFE in the gym would be pretty tough...)

    If i get eliminated thru me getting challenged im still going to continue the series for youtube.

    Doing it for the interwebz so might as well make it crazy. Side bets are just for the lolz

    Alright everyone! The time has come. Here are the settings we will be using for the randomizer.

    upload_2014-3-14_13-45-16.png

    The challenge will start at midnight (12:00 am) tonight! (EST +6:00).

    Reminder, you have 24 hours after that time to post that you have beaten the first gym leader (remember to post all that is asked for) :S

    Also, remember there is a 5 hour in-game time limit for each leg!

    Thank you all and good luck!

    Oooh boy random Trainer Pokemon. This is going to be fun/painful. At least they keep the same levels, but potentially going against fully evolved Mons in gyms is scary.

    No 'prevent Trainer Legendaries'?

    I was joking about Roxanne's Rayquaza stopping me dead in my tracks to a friend of mine, but now it might actually happen.
    I love it.

    I'm pretty bad at all of the timezone shenanigans. Would I be terribly off in saying the event is starting in roughly 2 and a half hours?

    Hah. I thought I had it at that at first, then looked it over again and ended with 2.5

    Thanks for the clarification. Gonna set the stuff up and be prepared.

    Out of excitement I accidentally started cause I misread the post on when we begin this (Will erase my file and restart at midnight), but I got a question...On the routes you have to walk through before you get Poke Balls, you're very likely to run into something at random since you're forced to walk through the tall grass. Do those count as your encounter for that route, or does it only count after you get Poke Balls?

    Remember everyone, the winner of the leg is based off IN GAME TIME (the amount of time you play to beat the gym leader), NOT who posts to the forum first. Keep this in mind when you start to play. Thanks!
