Does this mean that Entra Link abuses are not allowed? I have at least three pokemon in the forrest between all my games right now that would be fun to abuse for this particular challenge.

I'm afraid not. :<
Perhaps you can abuse them for another challenge in the future? *fingers crossed*

No hard feelings... I'm just overly excited working on a bunch of Dream
World Pokemon. I have over a dozen waiting on each cart. And there's a small handful that I like for this.... It's mostly that I like the pretty pink Dream balls... Although any my ideas will work in a Premier Ball, AND by doing a wild capture I can get a shiny one.

So here's my entry for the New Year's RNG challenge. ^_^


Species: Ponyta
Nickname: Eous
Shiny: Yes
Trait: Flash Fire
Level: 1
Gender: Male
IVs: 31|31|31|18|31|31
Moves: Tackle, Flare Blitz, Wild Charge, Will-O-Wisp

Description: Eous is one of the four fiery beasts (flame cloaked horses) that pull the Greek God Helios's chariot. Helios's duty was to turn night into day, and he would do so by riding his solar steed-powered chariot through the night sky slowly turning night into day. Well my entry is a tribute and an alternate version to this myth. In this version Eous is quite different from his fellow stallions, starting with the blue flames that cover his body instead of the usual orange ones. Next, as the year starts, Eous is a baby unlike the immortal and forever young adults that are his companions. But Eous ages quickly, which can be noticed in the gray flames that cover his body as a Rapidash. Then, after a year of work, after New Year's Eve has passed, during the first seconds of the next year, Eous gets completely covered in flames and, just like a phoenix bird, Eous is reborn as an adorable baby blue flamed ponyta with the start of every new year.

I hope you guys enjoyed the story as much as I enjoyed creating it ^^

This is my entry for the New Year's RNG challenge.


Species: Snivy
Nickname: Sixth
Shiny: Yes
Trait: Overgrow
Level: 5 (Starter)
Gender: Female
IVs: 31|30|30|31|31|31
Moves: Tackle, Leer
Legality analysis: https://www.pokecheck.org/?screenshot=3138669&la

Description: Chinese Zodiac is a system of 12- year circle where each year will be represented by one animal. 2013 is no exceptional. This year is symbolized by the Snake Zodiac. Based on this information, I have decided to RNG the snake-like pokemon Snivy. Snivy is an intelligent and calm pokemon which can demonstrate what New Year will be like and bring to each individual. First, it is one of the three starters that is given to beginning trainers to start on their journey. It is a starting point for trainers to decide where and what they want to be during their adventure. Secondly, snivy has a grass type with green color. That indicates something fresh, something that is growing or being born into a new world. Last but not least, this snivy is shiny which shows that this New Year will lead to a bright future. The snivy has the ID of 02013 which is the number of this year and it is nicknamed Sixth which is where Snake stands on the Zodiacs.

Hope you guys enjoy my challenge :)

Species: Bidoof
Nickname: Bill
Shiny: Yes
Trait: Simple
Level: 5
Gender: Male
IVs: 14/31/31/31/04/30
EVs: 0/254/252/0/0/4
Moves: Quick Attack - Aqua Tail - Curse - Return

Description: Year after year, the other Pokemon made fun of the Bidoofs, calling them all weird looking and weaklings. But this newborn Bidoof had barely been born, but he already had enough of it. This year, Bill would show them. He would show them that through hard work, anyone could become great… then he’d come back and whip them around the Day Care Center. He worked hard to increase his muscle mass. He exercised daily to the laughter of the other children, but this only made him want to work harder. When the year was over, he had gained a considerable amount of Attack and Defense…. for a level five that is. He then proceeded to show the other Pokemon his superiority over them, only to see them cower in fear. “This wasn’t what I had wanted” he thought. He just wanted to be accepted, so instead of working out all the time to intimidate the others, he decided to do what no other Bidoof had thought off, he decided to talk to the others. “Hey, I’m sorry if I scared any you off, I… I just wanted to be accepted” he said to the cowering Pokemon. The others looked at each other with confused looks, they had no idea how much it had hurt Bill when they made fun of him, they were just young children after all. With a smile and a lesson learned for all that were there, they went outside to play and had a great year together in the end.

I hope this horrible story of mine fufills the requirements for the description.

Species: Weedle
Nickname: New Year
Shiny: Yes
Trait: Shield Dust
Level: 1
Gender: Female
IVs: 0/0/0/0/20/13
Moves: Poison Sting - String Shot

Description: New Year is the poster child of 2013. In 2013, I thought it would only be fitting to have Pokémon Number 13 in the National Dex, represent the New Year. Not only is this very special Weedle Shiny, but she also has a strange set of IV's. These IV's are 0/0/0/0/20/13. In other terms, her IV's give the appearance of the year 2013. giving her a distinct tie to the New Year permanently. Now her backstory as a pokemon. When New Year was born, she was praised by the entire forest community. Not only was she the first born of the New Year, but she was a different color then the normal Weedle of the community. This was a sign among the people of the forest that this year would be one of great luck. When New Year actually started getting acquainted with the world, she was very weak. Besides being able to keep pace with some of the Weedles, she could also fend off the attacks of other pokemon that did not actually make contact. Besides this, she was very weak. New Year was brought to the Elder of the forest, a wise old Noctowl. Noctowl described the young Weedle's misfunctions as a bond to the New Year itself, meaning that this would be how she lived. The forest rejoiced at the greatness they had the honor of witnessing.

Species: Eevee
Nickname: Shiranai
Shiny: Yes
Trait: Adaptability
Level: 1
Gender: Male
IVs: 0/1/0/1/20/13
Moves: Tackle, Helping Hand, Wish, Yawn
Shiranai is the Eevee of the unknown time with the start of every new year. This creature appears to help determine the needs of the year. Shiranai is always noticed by his shiny coat that differs from the normal Eevees that roam the planet. He will approach a person within the village that he appears near to choose his master. However to determine what the new year brings all depends on the evolution it wants to take. So as he is in the company of his new friend and master he will choose what its form will be. Due to this it will also determine the trials and joys of the year.

When the year is up Shiranai will find a mate to produce the next child of Shiranai for the next New Year. With that starts the cycle of the unknown once again whether it comes with joy or at a price. Its all up to the feel of the next year.
