Okay, I'll just set thing straight, hoping to not sound rude at all.
You see, I can't always be online at PC, so it sometimes takes me a while to see a post in ReBURST becuse I'd be offline for some reason (mainly sleeping). So, please, don't go asking me about your post 2 minutes after posting it, k?
Now, in a general basis, your post... I don't want to hurt you or anything, but it needs to be improved, as well as your general writing style. I see you're finally using capitals, which is a good thing, but you haven't improved your post length in any noticeable manner. Also, you aren't posting anything real enough, I mean, yes, it's the Pokemon World, but even there, things are real to a degree. You see, Pokemon Centers don't sell Potions (at least not in my RP), that's what Pokemarts are for, even then, you can't really get any free supplies out of the blue, you can find them around routes lying around, or you can get them from a NPC if I ever describe one that does that.
There's also no Slaking around, NOWHERE in Hoenn, the only exception would be Norman's Slacking, and, even then, it's a Trainer Pokemon, so there's no way it could be wandering around... As for Vigoroth, the same applies, but there are quite a few of them owned by Trainers.
I do appreciate the fact that you were giving a twist at encountering a Pokemon, but you really need to work harder for those twists to be believable, okay?
As for your character and Pokemon, they are living beings, they must feel emotions, react to their situations! Be able to think something at certain times, to feel danger, to feel sad... And you're not letting Chillacy develop himself as a character! He's not perfect, he must feel some kind of emotions! Same goes for Walrashap! He's a Pokemon, yes, but he also feels damage inflicted from moves, sadness and whatnot.
Now, this one goes both for Slakoth and Seedot: You're not letting them react, Spheal is not THAT fast, y'know! He can't attack before being attacked! As for Slakoth, he has to react, to feel pain!
Not letting Pokemon do this when you're fighting them is what we like to call 'Godmodding', which is, when your character/pokemon have from little to no personality, and they seem to do everything without failing or taking damage/risks from their actions, not to mention that they control NPCs for their own benefit (in this case, Pokemon)...
As for the shinies, I decide when to give them, and I give them to those whose posts are of an exquisite quality and actually deserve them: For example, TornZero, along with ytfeL, Baloth, and romdinner made some excellent posts where all their characters and Pokemon were involved, interacted, and most importantly, manifested a diversity of emotions! That's why she caught a Psyduck, that's why it was blue! The same goes for Stingray, he may post some very dark stuff, but this is a Mature [M] Role-Play, meaning that dark themes will be present at several times, as long as it's not a gory and very descriptive kill-fest among the characters, because it's not all pink color, y'know? It is because of him being able to handle these themes without going to far that he got a shiny Ralts, because the readers can actually get attached to Jerome, and more amazingly, to his Ralts!
Now, sorry for sounding rude, it was never my intention to do so... But seriously, danaxe, you need to improve greatly, it's not fair for the others that you are doing the same stuff with way shorter posts, at the same time, it affects the quality of the RP, not for me, but for those who follow it but aren't RPing in it, you really have to improve and stop your minor godmodding-ish actions, if you don't... I'll have no choice but to pull you out... I hate doing that, actually, I wouldn't like to get pulled from a RP I'm currently in, but I'll have to do so unless you change your post quality radically...
Sorry for the huge length, but I had to tell you this and, again, I'm sorry if I sounded rude...
Well, that depends on when Skymin will update the thread where she lists all the accepted and denied Roleplays, thus approving those accepted for them to appear in the forums... It'll be in a few days, that's for sure!
