LOVING the entries so far, everyone! Gonna be so difficult picking one. What did I sign up for?! xD;

Reminder: You have 24 more hours to post your entry for the challenge. Also, I guess (this summer) we are working on a more user friendly gen 4, maybe gen 3, rng guide for PC. Anyone interested in helping me orrrr in reading it, I guess?
Can I be guinea pig too? I need to learn how to Gen 4 RNG.

I wish to be a guinea pig too! I was actually gonna beg you guys to teach me 4th and 3rd gen RNGing this weekend. xD I loved your gen V guide, I used it to learn wild encounter RNGing the other day actually because I found Smogon too confusing.

The thing about gen 3 guide is that... I don't know how to do shiny eggs yet. I'm veryyyy inexperienced. I do know gen 4 a bit. I will need helpers in drafting it too!
And I know shiny eggs as well, got my shiny egg, now working on IVs for it. I love Gastly so much :3
And, unfortunately, I need 31/x/0/31/31/31 Hasty. Wish me luck with getting those IVs

ps. Shiny eggs are absolutely wicked. It takes some time and it's not easy at all. :/

Sweet. You're mah guinea pig?!

You can get your SID of your gen 3 file by palparking the Pokemon to gen 4. Put it up on Pokecheck and get its SID... However, if you want good wild shinies, you will have to SID abuse.

The thing about gen 3 guide is that... I don't know how to do shiny eggs yet. I'm veryyyy inexperienced. I do know gen 4 a bit. I will need helpers in drafting it too!

im working on a gen 4 RNG guide for people who use flash carts and not figured it out yet (theres no guides to it anywhere) iv got tid/sid abuse section down for it and im working on the rest so you could link both guides once there both completed (my flascart guide will have pics too with rng reporter 9.95)

I have a feeling I will be heavily involved in writing a new RNG guide for Gen 4 with Blade, so just go ahead and ask me to do it anyway xD Great entries every one and I'm glad to see so many newer members posting and participating. By the way, thanks all for getting to 500 posts! Olli just gave me the Natural Born Leader emblem :D woot!

Here's another birthday present for someone!


Jovani / Snorunt (f) lv. 1
Ice Body | Timid
Cedric | 26099
31/31/31/31/31/31
[ Leer, Spikes, Substitute, Toxic ]
-hatched in Giant Chasm-

My sister wanted me to trade her a Japanese Ditto so she could Masuda for a shiny Snorunt, but I decided RNGing her one would be better. I RNG'd a shiny Torchic for her in gen IV, but now that I can do pretty good eggs in gen V, I figured this would be a much better present. Here's to hoping she likes it! I'll trade it to her without her knowing and then be like "WHOA! When did you get this Snorunt?" lol I'll also trade it holding a Dawn Stone, since idk if she has one.

I kinda wanna do some abuses on my Japanese White, but I need a flawless Ditto and I need to register that file on Pokecheck, but I won't be able to search for Patrat on GTS because...idk Japanese haha. So idk, I might just stick with Black for RNG for the most part. :( Plus I'd wanna be able to clone my stuff on White, and if I can't register my file, can't do it. I should just go and play Zelda now lol.

Nice Snorut, Sydders! <3 I love it. Anyway, in case you forgot to write it down or anything, Patrat in Japanese is ミネズミ. Good luck registering... I need to register my Japanese save too but ffs xD

Here's my entry for Blade's birthday! :D It took me forever but hey, it's only my 2nd RNG back fully


☺ ♥Disc | Luvdisc
(m) lvl 1.
Swift Swim | Modest
Tom | 08716
31/30/30/31/31/30 HP Electric 70
Scald | Ice Beam | Hidden Power Electric | Safeguard
Hatched in Black City on 4/23/2012


The reason I chose the nickname which means Smile the heart is luv and disc if anyone was wondering. The reason I chose Luvdisc is because it is to show happiness, which is what Blade brings to a lot of us here at PC whether it be modding, helping with RNG, or just that amazing Blade that we all know! The smile is so she remembers to keep smiling on the worst days and it's gold color is to represent happiness as well. Luvdisc also represents my support to a great friend who supported me at the VGC's and with other things as well. Luvdisc may not be physically strong, but with it's trainer it's emotionally strong and this one is smiling! Happy Birthday Blade I hope it was a great day!

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Very nice entries, everyone. Ya'll really tear at my heart! As for owner's choice, gaaaah/
Spoiler:

Korra / Ninetales (f) lv. 47 @ Rawst Berry
Flash Fire | Timid
Cedric | 26099
30/26/7/31/30/30 HP Rock 70
[ Flamethrower, Captivate, Inferno, Grudge ]
I love how many members creatively described how their entry Pokemon could cheer me up. Even so, Sydian's entry stood out to me. The 4 moves relate to my position at PC and my personality. I personally like the move Inferno. The HP Rock, fire attacks, and dive ball relate to Korra's earthbending, firebending, and waterbending. The nickname is an obvious reference to one of my favorite fandoms. Syd put a lot of love and work into it, so congrats!

A few special mentions go to:
Gonzo's attention to detail (When did you catch that I am hasty natured? It's true though, I did get Skitty in PMD haha. Edit: ohhh you. it's my nature here, LOL /shifts in seat >:C).
Mac for making me smile when he asked me to guess it. I almost typed Mareep but I deleted it because I didn't think she would best match a dive ball, haha!
TheGr8 for subtlety asking me my fav location and hatching Luvdisc in Black City. xD;
CrazyMrHans for mentioning 19 more candles, haha!
Everyone for the overdose of dive balls and one lovely Absol in a premier ball, I can forgive that. :)

Flops:
wry no blue shaymin, yellow buizel, or red sandslash?!

Congratulations, Sydian! Good job, everybody! Now it's time for me to choose, ekhehehe!

Have a look at the next challenge:

Fossil Descendant challenge!

Humans evolved from apes, ancient Pokemon evolved as well! Pick your favourite Pokemon from the past and imagine that time turned to another species. Is Archeops as frightening as in the past or is it just a tiny pathetic birdy? Now, pick your favourite fossil and RNG descendant of the chosen Pokemon.


This challenge is based purely on your creativity and ability to give good reasons. Good luck!

Hoppip | Level 1
Aaron | 06293 | White
Timid | Chlorophyll | 31 19 31 25 31 31

I'm a little confused with the challenge. Do we RNG a fossil Pokemon, something that could have descended from a fossil Pokemon, or the fossil and a descendant?

You RNG something that could have possibly descended from a fossil Pokemon. In your description, you say which fossil you think it could have descended from.

Okay well I RNGed an Anorith for the challenge, but then after re-reading it I realised that Anorith is exactly what the challenge wasn't asking for. Which I'm very annoyed about since this was a really good breed for me! It's pretty much a perfect breed (shiny, flawless) and it was going to be the best entry possible to celebrate our new TC mod, but I was too stupid to read the challenge. xD I even went to the trouble of chain breeding for Iron Defense and Rapid Spin on a Shelder D: But anyway yeah, here's my darling Anorith that I now hate:


Anorith ♂ Lv. 1 ★
OT: Ozzy
Ability: Battle Armour
Nature: Jolly
IVs: Flawless
EVs: Untrained
Moves: Scratch, Harden, Iron Defense, Rapid Spin

But yeah, now that I've re-read the challenge I'll go think of something cool to RNG for it. x]

Since I've had a lot of questions about the current challenge, I fixed the wording a bit in the first post. Here it is if you cba (Ozzy):

Challenge #13: Fossil Descendant challenge!
Humans evolved from apes, ancient Pokemon evolved as well! Pick your favourite Pokemon from the past and imagine that it evolved into another Pokemon species. Is Archeops as frightening as in the past or is it just a tiny pathetic birdy? Now, pick your favourite fossil Pokemon and RNG a possible descendant of it.

#451 Skorupi ♂ Lv.10
OT: Dylan ♂ | ID: 35637
Impish - Keen Eye
IVs:31/31/31/31/31/31 70
Bite - Poison Sting - Agility - Knock Off

I did Skorupi for this one. It was the first thing that came to mind when I thought of a descendant for Anorith.

For centuries these shrimp-like creatures were fished for trainer consumption. Being semi-intelligent Pokemon they noticed that Anoriths who were poisoned by their territorial enemies, the Tentacools, were thrown back in the water to continue their lives. The hunted shrimp, not fearing toxins, cut a deal with the Tentacools; that if they poisoned their people making them unworthy of consumption, they would leave the jellyfishes favorite part of the ocean to do their jellyfish things. The deal was made, and everyone lived happily ever after. Some Anoriths chose to take to the lands, becoming what we know as Skorupi. Retaining their heavy shell armor, their pincers and claws, yet using their new prowess over poison to overcome humanoid and grassy foes. The oldest Drapions have a dark, ulterior motive to seek revenge upon those who once hunted them.

I have no idea what I'm doing or if I did it right loooool.

I was going to enter this in the last challenge as a Ninetails but Sydian beat me to entering a Ninetails.. So I'll just share it with you all =)



Vulpix ♀ lvl 1
Nature: Timid

Hidden Power: 70 Fighting
IVs: 31/31/30/30/30/30

I don't think I'll enter this evolution challenge, I have quite a bit of RNGing to do for a giveaway thingy so I'll be quite busy =o I also can't seem to get inspiration for this certain one.

Here's my entry to the challenge! Spinarak from Kabuto. It may not seem obvious at first but bear with me.


Spinarak
Insomnia|Adamant
31|31|31|23|31|31
String Shot|Toxic Spikes|Pursuit|Night Slash

So I was looking at Fossil pokemon and what animals they represent in real life. Kabuto was one of the ones I looked at. So, Kabuto is based off of a horseshoe crab. Horseshoe Crabs are pretty old creatures and have been around for a long time. (Here comes the part I love) So I took a look at the biological side of Horseshoe Crabs. Horseshoe Crabs belong to the Subphylum Chelicerata, which is divided into three Classes. The ones I'm going to look at today are Merostomata and Arachnida. Merostomata is the class that Horseshoe Crabs belong to, and Arachnids we all know what those are. This means that these crabs and spiders are related. If two Classes stem from a same Subphylum, that means that the animals in those Classes had a common ancestor that at one point split into different kinds of animals. If we look at pokemon, Spinarak and Kabuto may have had a common ancestor. (Also, the animal that Anorith is based on is placed in the Phylum Arthropoda of which Chelicerata is a subphylum, so Anorith may also be loosely related to Kabuto and Spinarak)

I hope this makes sense to you guys!

So I decided I wanted to learn how to RNG abuse my Gen V ID/SID and Starter. I looked up some guides on how to RNG abuse your ID/SID and starter on Smogon. The only issue was these guides were for RNG Reporter and since I'm on a Mac, I'm using PPRNG. From what I can tell (have never used RNG Reporter) the two programs are pretty similar, so I was able to translate and use the guide pretty well for PPRNG.

...And I was able to RNG abuse my ID/SID and Starter on my very first try. Pretty excited about that.
