Pffft, I can't control whether or not I get sick haha. Besides, I get enough sleep- I just had a lot to do today. I'm just going to use that as an excuse because I don't understand why I'm always tired. [;

asdfghjkl
Apparently EV training a team of four Pokemon takes a long time haha. I normally would have them all ready within a few days, but I started last night and only two are even above level 10.

Well I've been eating for the past 30 minutes. It's so wonderful to eat ♥

I'm going to finish up my Pokemon challenge after this Pokemon episode

Good. [:
What challenge are you working on?

I'm drawing while EV training my team. Jz, when do you want to battle?
I'm considering just ditching the EV training and doing it later. It's taking way too long haha. Plus it won't have all the results until the Pokemon are lvl100.

Would you rather do it with or without EV training?
Ah, okay. I've never tried a Pokemon challenge, and probably won't for a while, considering I can't reset any of my games without trading over a mass amount of Pokemon.

Good luck, then. [:

We can do without EV training if it's too much of a hassle for you

And yea, that's why I use my FireRed & Ruby cartridge to do my challenges

I might just EV train later, then perhaps we could battle again once they have decent training?
I should be ready to battle within a few days, hopefully sooner, if possible.

That's a good idea haha.
My only copy that doesn't have a lot of Pokemon is Ruby version, I believe. Either Emerald or Sapphire is a hacked game and is full of shiny lvl100 Pokemon. <3

I've tried to EV train before, and I failed miserably. The only Pokémon that I trained with the fewest amount of mistakes is a Lucario, and it has a bad nature so it isn't even as good as it should be. I've always messed up any of the other Pokémon I tried to train, so I eventually gave up EV training.

My Pikachu got an Adamant nature which would be great if he had Volt Tackle, but unfortunately he don't :[

He's still the best Pikachu I've seen out there ♥

I always seem to luck out in the nature department in-game, but when I was breeding for EV training, nope. I would have BOXES full of Pokémon before I got one with the correct nature. I would get neutral natures a lot, but I really wanted one that boosted the correct stats. One of the reasons why I gave up EV training.

I ended up with a mass amount of one Pokemon when trying to get the correct nature. T:

As for EV training, I rarely see any difference in the stats, which causes me to often ditch the Pokemon. I'm tempted to EV train a Rattata with the correct nature and good IVs, just to see if it's still too weak. [:

Jz, the highest level in my team is lvl19 at the moment. Now that I'm not EV training, though, it'll go faster.

I'm a bit like that.. I'm too lazy to keep track with a paper and pen the EV training stats and all that.. I focus more on just enjoying my team and trying to catch them all without the use of hacks or anonymous GTS :3

I used to be pretty crazy in regards to breeding, slowly but surely in the 3rd Gen then and then all-out hardcore in 4th. I'd breed for natures, abilities, and genders(if required for whatever reason), and then proceed to my favourite EV spots for each stat. But when the 5th Gen came around and introuced both Dream World abilities and Team Preview, I quit EV training cold turkey. xD

Now my only competitive battling is on online simulators, which is much easier IMO. Though I admit the feeling I had back in 4th Gen of winning with my own hard-trained Pokémon was a bit better.

I could never be that hardcore.. I have no patience for it! Hahaha! Though a weird pleasure I have in Pokemon is coming up with witty or fitting nicknames for everything I catch :3 I enjoy it <3

Of course. Let me check and see if they're decent and I'll get back to you haha.

Hmm. I have one that seems decent, I guess, but the moveset isn't the best. At least the moves go well with its Attack/Sp. Attack. I'm just going to dig through my PC box and find any Pokemon that are lvl50+ and see if I can get enough for a decent team. [:

All this talk about Pokémon has made me realize how long it's been since I played any of my Pokémon games... Not too long, but longer than it should be.

I know right it's been a while since I played too. Someone needs to seriously give me a kick and make me work on my Black 2 dex, I'll never finish it.

I often find it interesting how some people here haven't played Pokémon for awhile, despite the fact that this is a Pokémon forum. :D

Not criticising anyone, because I'm in that group myself. And even at that, the last game I played was Crystal, where I ragequit after failing to find a Heracross over several hours of gameplay. @_@

@Jz
You, my friend, are a genius. [: I'm eating at the moment, but when I'm done, I'll start preparing to battle you. Better check to see if there's a move relearner on Diamond, so I don't waste time sending it to Soulsilver if there is.

That is exactly me. It has been well over a year since I've played a pokemon game! Pretty horrible, isn't it?!

I've never finished any of my dexes.. closest I came was in the original red where I got 147 pokemon ;_;..

My Pokedex in HeartGold is almost complete. I got every Gen I & Gen II Pokemon, I'm missing a few Gen III Pokemon and quite a bunch on Gen IV
