For anyone who is a fan of Pokemon, and has played Generation II games (Gold/Silver/Crystal) with a high level of experience, looking for a challenge, here is what I've come up recently.

If you own any of the ROMS with an emulator or on any consoles (multiplayer included), here's what I have in mind to do:

Create a save game of Gold/Silver/Crystal (I did it using Silver) with only (and ONLY) the following achievements and restrictions:

* The player Character must be named ETHAN (capitalized)
* The rival character must be named SILVER (capitalized)
* Must choose starter CYNDAQUIL
* Mustn't obtain or take any items, balls, TMs, or KEY Items on the floor during gameplay (Or talk to any NPC who gives them away freely), unless inevitably obtaining the item to progress (ex: KEY ITEM SQUIRTBOTTLE)
* Mustn't battle or attempt to battle any trainers, they all should be avoided, unless inevitable battling the opponent to progress during gameplay
* Mustn't encounter any wild pkmn, or see it registered in the Pokedex, unless encountering a wild pkmn already registered its entry by any other means (ex: Battling an unavoidable trainer)
***Note: Gender is irrelevant since gender wasn't a recorded variable setup to be remarked in the Pokedex until Generation IV games
* Must obtain only (AND ONLY) the following Pokemon for your roster: CHIKORITA, CYNDAQUIL, TOTODILE, TOGEPI & their evolutionary families
***Note: You can obtain SHUCKLE from Cianwood City to add to your roster and register its entry in the Pokedex, it is exceptional

More restrictions:
*HMs Cut, Surf, Strength, Flash, Fly mustn't be obtained, Otherwise your pkmn on the roster must be traded/swapped with other pkmn wielding the field move.
* The 5 Pokeballs provided by the Prof's Aide must remain in the bag unused, so goes for 1 Potion & 1 Berry attached to the starter
* No Gameshark/Action Replay, or any cheating methods allowed, this game must be played fairly
* The journey must be progressed till Blackthorn City & obtaining the final Badge from Clair (And saved in Blackthorn City)

OPTIONAL CONTRIBUTIONS:

Since your pkmn in the roster are restricted to starters & TOGEPI & their evolutionary family, make sure they are provided with these movesets:

CHIKORITA                  TOTODILE            CYNDAQUIL            TOGEPI
SYNTESIS                    CRUNCH              SUBMISSION          SHADOWBALL
BODYSLAM                  SLASH                   DIG                            PSYCHIC
SOLARBEAM                BLIZZARD            SMOKESCREEN    SWEETKISS
ANCIENTPOWER       HYDRO PUMP     FLAMETHROWER  SAFEGUARD

So you can't do much anything, sounds really dull challenge for me, but some people might like this though.

Well this is what i came up with, it might be dull but it is time consuming and a little bit stressful, after you do it you can venture back to New Bark Town and start all over again with all badges.

For those who are experienced but don't want to try the challenge for themselves, just visualise it and predict how much effort it will take, and even post a reply on something additional for the challenge to be even more of a strategy.

Thanks

This is cool and all, but isn't Surf REQUIRED to get to Cianwood? Or am I misunderstanding something here?

I'm willing to accept this challenge, but only when I'm allowed to use Surf to get to Cianwood City, and using a reference to get through Mt. Mortar. Because this stuff's impossible otherwise. ^^'

EDIT: Just a question, have you tried this for yourself already? It's practically impossible to avoid wild battles at the start, because there are no Repels until Voilet City.

As I've stated,  you can have SURF with Totodile or one of its evolutionary family but not the HM in your bag, so goes for CUT, FLY, STRENGTH & FLASH, use another save game and trade with the current to get the starter with the field move.
Oh and make sure the Pokemon you should own are starters, togepi, and shuckle, nothing more, nothing else even registered in the Pokédex
I've tried this challenge. Try it or visualize it for yourself.
If I had too many vizzes I would've posted this in the challenges section and giveaway

The challenge requires at least 3 different ROMs, but it is doable.

Okay, I think the challenge is acceptable and a good tough challenge. I honestly am going to do this challenge. Seems enjoyable, intense, and much more fun while playing.

This is very interesting, I have loads of respect for those who managed to do it.
It seems like a really hard or impossible challenge. It sounds like a fun challenge to me.
But...if you make ONE tiny mistake...you fail.

AMERIGO : This sounds like a very difficult, but very interesting way to play. Unfortunately, I don't have either the game or the ROM, so do you know where I could find it?

This does seem challenging, like a Solo run. Whitney would be awful without potions though...
