GREEN SNAKES! \o/

I started doing a TeamRocket / Giovanni team challenge (team taken from all the games and the manga, because I really wanted a crobat) last week and after trading in a Meowth egg (because i'm playing it on HeartGold) the first pokemon I ran into was a Shiny Sentret.
SO PINK AND STRIPES! She's currently my "HM slave" as Furret so I can keep her along.

Same for the challenge -
I'll join up once I'll finish up my Platinum run. *twitches* Sinnoh....

I didn't know what that was from, and so I looked it up... AND OMG I LOVED LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE. I only saw like 5 episodes but it was AWESOME.

And I'm glad there will finally be an all gen gym leader challenge. I might partake now! ^_^

Sadly no idea where that is from. No Nickelodeon around here.

It's also sad that Arbok is yellow/gold snake rather than green. Oh well...

I say Normal type. Get yourself a Stoutland, soldier!

Normal is fun to monotype. They're so versatile. <3

Yeah, I learned that once on Emerald playthrough.
Zigzagoon with Surf. I wasn't expecting it... my poor Nosepass...

Also they seem to learn all the bolts/beams for elemental things. Some even with Psychic. o.o I should really try once to go all Normal.

Yep, they've been the most diverse pokemon since the beginning. Makes up for them not being SE against anything.

I've decided to keep the Ekans on my team, even though it's fighting monotype. One of my own rules is that I can always use random shinies Since they are so rare anyway

My darling shiny Furret, Innis, just became part of Hall of Fame at level 16. She dodged a Dragon Tail Dragon Rush from Lance. Like a boss. o-o I had to toss her in to revive my Persian for a flinch to stop an Outrage Blizzard.

I honestly did not expect getting through the League with a bunch of level 41-44's.
Slow Gyarados + Avalanche + positive Attack nature = Oh my god you...

Edit: Just re-read that with thought. lol, what I meant to write was Dragon Tail -> Dragon Rush (inaccuracte move is inaccurate) and Blizzard. All the Dragonites in that fight with similar move sets. And this was an hour or two after I beat Clair, who does use Dragon Tail a lot... hrrr....

Segment the Shiny Arbok is AWE-SOME! Way better than expected, having the strongest attack on the team, as well as having great stats overall. I love her!<3 beat Clair's Kingdra EASILY, just a few Sludge Bombs. Never had such an easy Claire battle.

Alright, I'm gonna try to monotype Conquest. I already tried to on the hardest storyline in the game and lost, like 4 times. So I'm trying a mid-difficulty one now. Hope this works!

Rule: Must invade other kingdoms with the monotype team

People go long periods without updating all the time. I know Syd will go long intervals without an update. Only a few of us do stuff like weekly updates, so don't expect it everywhere.

http://www.pokecommunity.com/blog.php?b=15167

no excuse now come on

I update them whenever I feel like. Trying to get better at keeping them updated though, especially events so that I don't have to back track. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go do girl things like have a period.

I do recall on one of the info pages, you used a male pronoun when referring to yourself, but looking back at the Challenge info threads, I see that it was either changed, or I was dreaming when I saw it. ...Admittedly, at first I figured that you preferred male pronouns when I saw it on that thread, but that blog actually cleared up some of my confusion...

I would figure that those threads being written in 2010 or 2011 and my gender being currently set to female in 2013 would mean "I guess she changed her mind?" lol :(

I gotta go cuddle some puppies brb.

Syddy being too cute to be a guy. Seriously, don't worry about it, we know who you are, and we love you that way ;D.

I beat my Crystal run. Arbok was my best team member, Machoke and Hitmonchan just suck, Poliwrath was also pretty good xp.

But that's like saying you confuse people in general. idk how you can confuse mods when I'm probably the only one that posts in here, other than Mac twice on this page lol. We all have different names...but oh well.

I am reluctant to start my random challenge. lol

I guess it's the 'Syd' part that keeps making me think you're a guy :[
I'll try to keep in mind that you're a dudette.

And btw, I don't know if this is still early, but would a Saint-Patrick's day event challenge be cool?
