I'm definitely loving the Nature feature. It makes it so much more interesting when searching for Pokémon. Though I have to admit, it's pretty hard to get a good Nature and ability. I've been searching for a Modest Petilil with the Own Tempo Ability. It would be so perfect when using Petal Dance. The tough part is catching them though. They're constantly healing so it makes it really difficult to get their health low. When I finally do the Pokéball always breaks. u_u
I think I might go back and start to recapture some of my Pokémon. I'm not high enough level to take on the third Gym Leader anyway. At the very least I've captured 5/6 of the Pokémon I want. Now I just need a female Feebas. :D
By the way, what Nature would you recommend for the following?
I feel like all they should all be Modest minus Riolu. Though I suppose it depends on the attacks that they're best with.
I'm still very thankful for the Pokérus you gave me. I had no idea it even existed. Let alone how hard it was to find.
When it comes down to it, I'm just glad I even got to see a Shiny. I'll find another some day.
Hope you had a wonderful day by the way.

I like Natures, it gives a little more depth to each individual Pokemon. Though you don't have to worry that much about it and IVs and EV training, the game is designed so that you can beat it with pretty much any team. The Pokemon in the battle facilities though, like the Battle Subway, PWT or White Treehollow are much stronger, especially the farther you advance.
Well, the chances to even encounter a shiny in the wild are 1/8192. Apparently I've encountered 1134 wild Pokemon in my current Black 2 game, so I guess I have to keep trying. I don't even care about the coloration, some of the shinies are actually very close in color to the original, to me, it's about the luck part. It's funny though, 'cause I've encountered Pokerus in the wild, and that's about 3 times rarer than finding a shiny, so I guess I used up all my luck there.

To be honest I don't really know. I thought I would figure it out while in college but that doesn't seem to be happening. I've considered taking up a business major as well as one in law. However, I'm also heavily attracted to computers, math and science. I've dipped my toes in just about everything there is. Heh. I'm sure it'll come to me.
The Pokerus you gave me spread to quite a few pokemon I captured. I caught about 6 Petilil and an Eevee before I finally caught the one with a modest nature. So I have about three in the PC including yours that caught it.
I had no idea that certain natures boosted certain stats and dropped others until a few days ago when I noticed one stat was highlighted in red while another was in blue. That's a pretty useful feature. I'm still not entirely sure how EV and IV training work but I suppose I shouldn't worry too much about that until post game.
Once you mentioned the Modest nature I did my best to find a Petilil with it as well. It didn't come with the ability I wanted it to have to avoid confusion after a Petal Dance so I'm considering trying to find another one.
As sad As I was that I didn't capture it, I realized I would never use it. I have never been a fan of Raticate so it would have ended up being neglected in my PC. Though, I suppose it could have made for a unique Pokerus mule. I have faith another shiny will come my way. n_n
I hope you're having a wonderful day Miau.

You'll figure it out eventually. I don't know, what do you see yourself doing?
Pokerus is good, but like I said, make sure to keep at least a couple of infected Pokemon in the PC, because once it's gone, you can't spread it to your party anymore. Also, you'll notice that Gothita's Attack is going to be way lower than her other stats, because her nature decreases her Attack by 10%. Which isn't a bad thing, since she won't use it anyway, and instead, her Special Attack is boosted by 10%, and with the 30 IV, it should be growing steadily in the future.
So Modest is also good for Petilil, as she is also a Special Attacker. You got lucky, I had to catch 15 Gothita before I got a Modest one to breed for you
And what is that? That is so awesome! I've never had a shiny encounter, I think I would cry if I didn't catch it...

See! That sounds awesome! n_n Getting a customer to give me their email isn't exactly satisfying. I'm currently major-less. I still don't know what I want to do with my life unfortunately. :T
I figured you might need the Elekid! I tried my best to be helpful. Hehe. You've been too kind and keep being generous even though you just met me. It's really nice to see that people like yourself are out there. So no I will not stop thanking you.
You're actually the only friend I have on my 3DS so I'm on the same boat. Minus being helpful...or useful in anyway. >.>
News to share! The PKRS has spread!
My Gothita hatched at last! It got a 4 in attack and 6 in the rest. Seems pretty well rounded.
Also, I found my first legitamite shiny! A Ratata which I OHKOd but it was my first encounter nonetheless.
I caught a modest level 17 Petilil with 36 Sp. Atk.
And I found a wild Eevee! I didn't even know I could find them in the wild!! :O

Hmm, that's tough. I got my bachelor's degree in computer science last year and I've been working as a programmer for 2+ years. I'm glad I can do what I like, though sometimes it's hard. But like you said, it's the feeling you get after you get something difficult done, like making a tough deadline and being able to do the release in time. So what are you studying?
Hehe, relax. Actually, I needed that Elekid, it's a White exclusive, and I don't think I had one yet. And stop thanking me, ok? I'm just glad to help, and trading is a huge part of Pokemon I think, I really like it, and it's nice to be able to do it, since I don't know anyone who plays the games in real life sadly.

I'm quite envious. I've been working retail for far too long. I work the graveyard shift regularly but on occasion they make me work double shifts due to lack of employees and budget cuts. I don't feel any sense of accomplishment working where I do. Even though I know its just until I get through college it still makes me feel a bit empty being there. Your job sounds like its interesting to say the least.
I'll cross my fingers and hope for the best then. I'd hate to see my pretty little Lolita be a male. You better quit offering free help by the way. Otherwise I'll have to find a way to spoil you and you won't like it. (Well I hope you will.)
I truly miss the original anime. I haven't watched it past the 3rd Gen but I do miss it dearly. I was so sad when I heard the voice of Meowth died.
Again thank you so much. You really have no idea how happy this made me. n_n
June 22nd, 2013 12:24 AMMiau
Don't be envious, I'm working 11 hours a day, plus a few extra hours on Saturday. And I thought 9 to 5 was hard, now I miss it so much But yeah, since this is going to go on for a few more weeks, our project manager was OK with us working from home.
Nope, IVs, nature and gender are set upon receiving the egg. But I realized Gothita are 75% females, so you shouldn't worry that much. I can always breed you another one anyway.
And you're very welcome And you hit the spot with that, I love Meowth from Team Rocket. I've actually started watching the anime from the beginning a while back, I should pick it up again
June 22nd, 2013 12:18 AMXolace
Thank you so much Miau! You're too kind. I only wish I could give you something in return.
Working from home must be nice every now and then. I'm fairly envious.
If it doesn't hatch female do I have the option to hatch it again with a new result? (Via restart?)
Also, did I say thank you? I honestly never expected to get Gothita this soon! Much less one that's been so carefully bred. I'll pay you back for this some day. Miauth that's right!
June 22nd, 2013 12:05 AMMiau
Well, I'm working from home today, since I'm doing overtime. Yes, Saturdays too So anyway, I'll just be in the wifi room, head out after you're down with the Pokestar thingy, and we can trade then
June 22nd, 2013 12:01 AMXolace
I'm stuck at the darn Pokestudio. I'm sorry. ><
June 21st, 2013 11:59 PMMiau
Oh and I didn't infect the egg with Pokerus in the end, so after I trade it over, I'll show you three of my Pokemon that have Pokerus. Just chose one of them, and then you can keep it and use it to infect any of yours, anytime.
June 21st, 2013 11:55 PMMiau
Congrats on beating Roxie
Well, I sure hope this Gothita hatches female then. And I'm already in the wifi room, so you should head over there as wel. Nothing special for the 3DS, I'm using a 3DS as well BTW.
June 21st, 2013 11:50 PMXolace
Wonderful!!! My first friend on my 3DS and the forums. That and I beat Roxie all within a few minutes. I'll available for the next 7 hours. I just got off work so I need to readjust for my regular graveyard shift. I hate working during the day it completely throws me off. ;_;
Of course I'll be using it!! I decided on my Pokemon before I even started playing. Half male half female team. My female team consists of the Pokemon I thought looked prettiest. Haha. My male half is bold without looking ugly.
Is there anything I should know about trading on a 3DS? I don't have a regular DS so I'm not sure if I need to do anything special.
June 21st, 2013 11:36 PMMiau
Request accepted! You can ask away, I hope I can answer
And no worries, I don't mind at all. It's actually nice to be breeding Pokemon for someone who will actually use that Pokemon, I did IV breeding before, but never used the babies. I'll have your egg in a few minutes BTW, so let me know if you're still on and can trade.
