    ROUND 4: SERIOUSLY THE WORST
    [​IMG]
    This round will end at 11:59:59 PM (GMT -5) on 9/14.

    2007 brought us two new Pokémon games, Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl version. The fourth generation of Pokémon brought the much needed physical/special split and online play. Like never before, trainers from all around the world could battle each other in real-time.

    CHALLENGE
    Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum: Achieve the highest Poké Radar chain.

    Like the previous challenge, there is no hard time limit this round. Keep at it until your chain breaks! I am not specifying a Pokémon or route for this challenge. These are variables that are in your control.

    RULES
    A list of general rules can be found here.

    1. Do not abuse save states/resets.
    2. Do not use any cheat codes (e.g. "radar always charged").

    Don't I know it -_- worst idea so far imo. I never understood chaining at all, now I am going to have to spend all of today looking up how to actually do it and get decent chains. Granted whoever wins will have a chain of like 400 or something.

    So... I guess this week involves me getting the first shiny Pokemon outside of trading and Red Gyarados.
    And it's not going to be a cool Pokemon. :/

    Man back in DPP, chaining was my life. Maybe that's why I turned out an asshole who hates everyone.

    I've completed all of the challenges aside from the GSC one (due to time constraints), and I'd still be in the contest at this point. :)

    Fuck this... Chain broke for no reason....

    I'll probably throw in a game or two for next round anyway and just join Stellar in making up scores which mean nothing :P

    Welp, so much for that. I spent half of the week sick, and just barely even got what I did now without just falling asleep.
    Not that that's an excuse for anything, but oh well.

    Good luck for the remaining 8.
