    Hello everyone. Here I'll give a list of ways to make the games more challenging, for those of us that have completed it too many times to count anymore...

    Scramble mode- 5 people recommend you one pokemon each. Your 6th is your starter, and you use only those pokemon on your list. Found here

    Monotype mode- You play through the game using a single type. Dual types are allowed if they have your chosen type, as are pokemon that will evolve into that type. If you can't catch one of your type before the first gym, trade for an EGG! EGG ONLY!! or use your starter until you can- but no dragons/ghosts. Full rules and a thread here.


    No running away- Self explanitory. Never run from a wild pokemon, fight every trainer.

    Gym Challenger mode- Only take to a Gym the same number of pokemon as a Gym leader has- how is it fair when it can be 6 on 2, for example, against Brock?


    No saving before legendaries- (includes the Snorlaxes, in this case)


    Limited items mode- don't use any item that isn't required to finish the game (items like the HM surf)- includes Pokeballs, healing items, TM's etc - use none of them! Note: You MUST choose Squirtle (I think), or you can't complete this mode!

    Single pokemon mode- Get your chosen pokemon ASAP and never use anything else. I heard about a guy who did this with a weedle on red- and won.

    Hardcore mode- Any pokemon that faints gets released. Death is permanant!

    For scramble and monotype mode, post on the relevant thread. If you want to post your progress on any other modes, feel free to post here.

  2. Why must you use Squirtle to complete the limited item mode? You can get Magikarp or Eevee without any items, and they can allow you to use Surf one you evolve them. If anything, you can't use Squirtle, because you need to be able to use Cut with your starter.

    I almost always do new modes/challanges on Pokemon games, old and new. On Blue I'm going to beat the game without evolving any of my Pokemon. It should be pretty easy at the beginning, but during the E4... ouch. Wish me luck.
