That is actually exacly what I was thinking! Minimum of 2 for the first 2 badges, then a minimum of 3 for the next 2, then a minimum of 4 for the rest

Aggron and Bisharp
So can I use only 3 pokemon against Wattson and Flannnery now?
Hm... no. Stick with the ruleset as it is for now, four Pokes for your team. I'll be doin' the same. Sorry if that's an annoyance. When Waffle, Lucktown n' I do our future Harmonia Challenge with updated rules, I'll want feedback contrast.
Waffle, your Challenge is accepted.
Alright I found my charger for my ds light and my less well hidden ds, so I will start playing soon I'll edit the first update in in a few hours
For the Challenge I give you Durrant and Magnezone
Spoiler Alert!Harmonia Challenge Soulsilver, Update#1
Started with Cyndaquill and catched a Geodude, because I wanted to use it for the first gym. I also catched Sentret and Bellsprout, because this is the only place to get them (I think). I trained Geodude a bit and then went to the Bellsprout Tower where I used Geodude until it learned Rockthrow and then used Cyndaquill for everything but the Hoothoot of the eldest. Geodude also took care of the gym leaders Pidgey, but because Roost turns Pidgeotto into a ??? type and I took one Sand Attack it wore out almost all the Rockthrow pp and I chaged to Cyndaquill until it fainted and then finally defeated it with Rockthrow again.
So far it felt like a normal playthrough other than having to catch 2 u.seless Pokemon, but having to think of what is about to come for rest of the gym leaders, Kimono Girls, and Elite4 I think that this will be a lot of grinding

Thanks everyone. See you in a week and a half
Harmonia Challenge Soulsilver, Update#2
I caught a Mareep, an Ekans, a HopHip, and a Zubat, but I'm only using Mareep. After I grinded my level to 10 so that Mareep has Thundershock. I defeated all the trainers including the Magikarp trainer with his useless Splashes >:D, but I avoided the hikers in the cave and the Wooper guy. Mareep evolved into Waaty int the cave and I defeated the rival and the gym leader with Thundershock. I paralyzed Scyther and then it died after it used Leer and Focus Energy and it got paralyzed once. Now I have to catch another Pokemon, but can I do that in the Ilex Forest? It is accesable before you get the badge, but it is part of the story on the way to the next gym.
Feedback: I still have the same feeling about it. The grinding is a little bit annoying, but not so bad yet. It is kinda fun that you have to think of where you can get each Pokemon to decide if you already need it or if you should catch it just because it won't be anywhere else
And in HG/SS/G/S the Pokemon after you defeated the elite 4 are extremly low leve compared to what you need... I can't defeat Blue with a lvl 5 Ratata and I wouldn't be able to catch it, because all the regions are accesable before you even have the chance to fight him, so you'll need extra rules for that like the challenge ending after the League or that you get to keep your team

As the underlined text denotes, Pokemon in Ilex Forest can be caught both before and after obtaining the Hive Badge. If ya catch a Poke there before obtaining the badge, you can still catch more there after gettin' the badge.Originally Posted by Harmonia Challenge Rules
Rulings like that are exactly why I needed t' do a test run of every region... completely forgot how incompatible the rules are when it's time for GSC/HGSS to go int' Kanto. I'll probably make a clause where you're required to make one final new team, but ya don't need t' abide to rule 4 for the rest of the Challenge.
