    Hello VisionOfMilotic. I hope you are well.

    I have not been vegetarian for very long but went vegetarian so I could be healthier. I do like bean burgers but am not a fan of soy burgers. I have not eaten food from the brands you list but it is true that being vegetarian does not mean that you miss out on tasty food. The hardest part of becoming vegetarian was stopping eating chicken. I cut out pork and beef quite easily.

    Yes, The Shiny Shiny Roselia line is subtle but quite eye catching. The purple and black gives strong reference to its partial poison type. Purple is also a quite regal and elegant colour which fits Roserade well. Tsareena's shiny is also very eye catching and Lilligant's is subtle yet cute. The pink flower on Shiny Lilligant is very fitting.

    I am enjoying writing 'The Rose of Team Magma'. I'm liking how Courtney is warming to Rose (And Lilligant). Sarah is my favourite character in the story even though she is a minor character. She is a good friend to Rose.

    I will be getting Shining Pearl when it releases on the Switch. I still have my copy of Pearl. Whilst Sinnoh is my least favourite region it did some things very well such as giving evolutions to up to then unremarkable Pokemon (Such as Roserade for Roselia) and has my favourite Champion in Cynthia. I'm not sure about Legends: Arceus. I think I need to see more of it.

    In some ways Erika resembles a elegant, sophisticated channeler but with neater hair and a summery kimono. Her original headshot also looked more sinister than the kind grass maiden we all know. I think I saw the theory on Reddit as they showed some beta sketches showing Erika as the Ghost Leader of Lavender Town. The closed eyes give a different effect if she remained a ghost leader.

    Hi there LilyGardy!

    I'm doing well thank you! How about yourself old friend? It's splendid to catch up with you.

    I am excited to hear about your new lifestyle of vegetarianism. I was a vegetarian for many years, and last year I took the plunge and went full out vegan. I'm enjoying the plant-based diet. If you need any suggestions for good food brands that are vegetarian or vegan then, you I'm your gal. Ever try burgers from Beyond meat, Lightlife or Impossible? They are really good substitutes for ground beef, they do taste like the real thing to me whereas a lot of soy or black bean burgers aren't quite there yet. Beyond has some nice sausages too. Marie Callender has a deliciously-flavored chicken pot pie with gardein chick'n. Sorry to be a jabberjaw, but talk of food always gets me in a happy mood!

    Congratulations on your shiny Roselia. You know that's one of my favorite shinies. The black and purple roses are subtle, but elegant. I don't have Pokemon go, but I do have shiny Roselia and Roserade on my ds, and am grateful for these handsome fellas. That's a great idea to send one to Pokemon Shield, will be a fine companion to Her Queenly Majesty. Tsareena is another Pokemon I think is super cool. And the flower trinity wouldn't be complete without Lilligant Beech.

    This weekend I should have a chance to read up on the Rose of Team Magma. I'm really looking forward to settling in, and finding out what mischief Rose and Sarah are up to next, at the end of a long work week.

    Are you excited about Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl? What about Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

    That's a really interesting theory about Erika. I like it. I could actually see her as a Lavender Town gym leader There are channelers in the Pokemon Tower, and these ghost pokemon adopt a more traditional Japanese style dresses like priestesses, it complements Erika and her attire well. They could have been the gym trainers in an alternate storyline where she is the leader of a ghost pokemon gym. The sleepiness does indeed sound sinister, like she's under a magic spell or perhaps undead even! I'd love to read a creepy pasta about this. If you know where I could find that fan theory, point me the right direction. I want to know more. Cheers!

    Hello VisionOfMilotic. I hope you are well.

    I have been staying safe during the pandemic. I still work at the same place. I'm vegetarian now and am cooking more.

    I finally got a Shiny I have wanted for a while over the weekend. Shiny Roselia and Roserade on Pokemon Go. I really like the purple and black flowers it has. I will be sending one over to Shield and she can join my Shiny Grass Team which includes Tsareena (An eye catching yellow and purple) and of course Lilligant.

    I have wrote a bit more of 'The Rose of Team Magma' too. The story of Rose, Sarah and friends.

    I saw a Pokemon theory last week that Erika was originally meant to be a Ghost trainer due to the way she wears her kimono and that she was originally the Gym Leader of Lavender Town. In the theory her sleepiness is something more sinister. Ghost trainer Erika is much darker than the Grass maiden we are familiar with.

    How have you been VisionOfMilotic?

    Hello VisionofMilotic. I hope you are well.

    I do like cats and cat Pokemon. I have not seen the Pokemon anime for a while but I remember enjoying the episode where it explains why Team Rocket Meowth learnt to talk and walk upright unlike other Meowth. (At the time now all Meowth stand upright)

    I used to have a pet cat but do not anymore because I am allergic. Cats are very calm and clean animals. I have never seen the anime with the cat baron but he does seem a gracious individual.

    Congratulations on your Shiny Petilil. It is a very understated Shiny with blue eyes instead of brown. In Gen 5 it was very easy to miss a Shiny Petilil as it is so similar to her normal colour. Shiny Lilligant has a pink flower which could be a pink lily, a reference to pink being a feminine colour or even a reference to Nintendo's own Princess Peach.

    Doll making sounds fitting for you. It strikes me as challenging but fun. Glassmaking as well, similar to Sarah from The Rose of Team Magma. The next chapter will be up soon.

    I know little about the Crown Tundra other than the revealed Legendaries. I will be playing it at launch however.

    Pokemon Sweet Version was a fun experience. My team was the three starters, Lillicake, Bananibuzz and a velvet cake inspired Gardevoir.

    I just saw this post.

    I had to say, yes! You are exactly right! The Meowth Returns would indeed be about about a talking Meowth, just as The Cat Returns features talking cats. If you are a cat lover then I would highly recommend that animated film. The Baron Humbert von Gikkingen is your kind of fellow I think, elegant and gracious. He is one of my all-time favorite anime characters.

    Got any pet cats?

    You're very welcome my friend! I'm doing not too bad, et vous? I'm thrilled to be back in touch!

    I think a violin is an instrument that fits Lilligant too. Since this pokemon is almost like a fairy princess she therefore should have as her instrument something elegant and classical. Also how gracefully it manages with such slight arms is adorable. She indeed has a peaceful personality that I think could be mother to other pokemon.

    By the way, I finally have a shiny Petilil of my own. Did I mention? She was traded to me by my friend Jo, and will become a lovely Lilligant like yours one day. I couldn't help but think of you when I received it.

    That island sounds enchanting! Combee being there is a nice touch. I love me some Vespiquen. The Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra are game changers for me, and once Tundra is out I'll probably finally bite the bullet and get Pokemon Shield + a Nintendo Switch lite, with the expansion pass, though it'll all cost a pretty penny. Still I'm looking forward to exploring Galar now that I know more of my pokemon friends will be there. Dragonite forever!

    I have kept safe during the tumultuous time of the pandemic. My work situation has changed so that I am home now. I'm making crafts to sell. I'm a doll maker. I'm also starting a glassmaking class this winter.

    Working in tech sounded cool, yet being a receptionist seems like a good fit for you, you seem articulate based on your comments here. Maybe it is because of your avatars and refined taste in pokemon but you scross as organized, and like someone who would have the social graces if that makes sense.

    Wherever you are I'm hoping that your are always safe and sound, you are a lovely person and meeting you in one of the blessings Pokecommunity has brought me.

    Your shiny Clefairy in Pokemon Go sounds like the perfect touch for the birthday girl. I remember Lillicake now! I have seen some Let's Plays of that Rom Hack, and think it's one of the sweetest things I have ever seen- no pun intended. I love the idea, when I get around to it I'm picking Brownisaur as my starter.

    Hello VisionofMilotic. I hope you are well. Thank you very much for the kind birthday wishes and the adorable pictures.

    I particularly like the picture of Lilligant playing the violin. Whilst the flowering Pokemon's arms are small, I like the sound of a Lilligant playing violin. Lilligant is a very helpful Pokemon, I can see her helping small and unevolved Pokemon in the forest.

    Whilst the Shrine of the Lilligant is not canon, the Galar Isle of Armor has a Lilligant Island of sorts. In Sunny weather a flower shaped Island has only Petilil, Lilligant and Combee encounters. It strikes me as a very serene place.

    I have been keeping safe during the current situation although I now have a new job. I work as a receptionist now. I hope you have also been keeping safe in this situation.

    On my birthday I caught a Shiny Clefairy on Pokemon Go. Clefairy is one of my favourite Pokemon in Gen 1 and quite fitting for me as a trainer.

    Also one of the pictures is of 'Lillicake' from Fire Red fangame Pokemon Sweet Version. I played this game a few months ago. Lillicake is Chocolate/Strawberry if I remember correctly. Strawberries are my favourite fruit. Lillicake has similar moves to Lilligant but also some of Dodrio's moves such as Tri Attack and Fly.

    Hello there LilyGardy!

    How are you my dear old friend? I hope that you are doing well, and that you are somewhere nice and safe during this crazy year. It's been a long time since we've chatted, and I'd love to get back in touch. I'm long overdue to write. Something tells me that today is a special day. Could it be your birthday today? <3

    I'm decorating the walls of your profile with all sorts of honeysuckle, ivy, lavender, lilies, roses and delights befitting PC's aroma lady. Sending love and fantastic things your way! Happy big day! Lily Gardy! All good things your way,

    Hello VisionofMilotic. I hope you had a good and fun holiday period.

    Sarah is a very kind and caring character. She never judges Rose even when she was a (for Team Magma) ill fitting Aroma Lady. Whilst not as elegant as Rose she is quite creative and she is well liked by her. The next chapter of The Rose of Team Magma is up. Rose spends some more time with John and learns more about her new Pokemon.

    Even though I use a computer for my job I am not very good at repairing or rebuilding them. I find writing fan fiction quite relaxing. I remember you saying you had two fan-fiction ideas, one of them being Archie's Daughter.

    The starter Pokemon you receive at the start of the game is Shiny locked. However a shiny starter Pokemon can still be obtained by breeding. I obtained a shiny Sobble in 171 eggs by the Masuda Method with the Shiny Charm. Shiny Sobble is a calming blue with a bright pink crest. The blue darkens as it evolves. I have evolved him into a Shiny Intelleon which has an eye-catching colour scheme including pink crest and eyelids. It's a great Shiny.

    Tsareena is quite Lilligant like and some called her Alolan Lilligant when she was revealed. She is a physical attacker with a less sweet personality than Lilligant. In the anime Mallow's Tsareena has been shown wearing clothes such as an apron to help her trainer cook. Tsareena was my main Unova Pokemon and I have used her a lot in Shield.

    I have had an enjoyable time playing through Galar. My Team when defeating the Champion was - Inteleon, Tsareena, Apppetun, Mandibuzz, Copperajah and Galarian Rapidash. Max Raids are good fun and a good way to get strong Pokemon. The main issues with Sword and Shield are the removed Pokemon, short post-game and some frame drops in the wild area. I still think B2/W2 are the best Pokemon games overall but Sword/Shield are still good games.

    Good morning LilyGardy! I'm feeling pretty good right now, what about yourself?

    I wanted to invite you to a Clubhouse event. The Clubhouse End of Year Festival officially kicks off today. I know you are a long-time member of the Shiny Hunters Club. They are nominated for a Club of the Year award to win prizes. I thought I'd let you know just in case you want to cast a vote for your club here.

    Now that you have your invitation nice and proper let's get back to The Rose of Team Magma. I love Sarah too as a character, and would like to have her as a friend. I'll look out for the new chapter if there is one, I didn't realize that you had updated. That's great! Every time I read a new chapter by you I feel more and more emboldened to post Archie's Daughter here some day. I have been having some serious computer issues so I haven't been writing as much, but my cousin--who's a genius, more or less took my old computer apart piece by piece and rebuilt it in to something new, so she turned my defective Dell into a gorgeous new HP that I adore. So I'll be able to write all I'd like now ^_^

    I am looking forward to playing with all the new Pokemon shield Pokemon too, I really like what I am seeing of Appletun and just adore Dragapault. I didn't buy the game last month like I had planned though, I had to be sedated when I realized how many of my beloved serpents like Dratini and Serperior would not be in the region to join Milotic, but I do still want to play through Galar. I'm just trying to hold out and see if there will be a third game version now, a Pokemon Crown or Mace that will be more complete. But yes, I still want to experience gen 8. I am set on the Sobble line too now that I have seen all 3 of the starters and their evos, and when I get my game I am going to soft reset for a shiny Sobble on my first play through if the starters aren't shiny-locked. I really like the periwinkle color scheme it and it's evos get in the shiny form.

    Tsareena is a really cool pokemon. It's one of my favorites from gen 7. I am glad that I did go ahead and take your advice to play Ultra Sun and Moon because I did end up enjoying the changes, especially Rainbow Rocket! That's very interesting to learn that Lilligant had another stage evolution. I'd like to see it someday, maybe in a future game. That's one of the coolest things about Unova though, it's an abundant garden of great grass mons!

    I'd love to hear more about your adventures in Galar, and if you recommend Sword and Shield or not? Much love sis!

    Hello VisionofMilotic. I hope you are well.

    My favourite character in the story is Sarah. Whilst she does not have a particularly prominent role in the story she is a good friend to Rose and helps her in her journey. I always enjoy writing her scenes. Originally John had a Zubat. Next chapter should be up in the next couple of days before Sword and Shield release.

    Whilst I am disappointed that some of my favourite Pokemon will not be usable in Galar I am looking forward to playing Pokemon Shield. I plan to pick Sobble as my starter and have a Galarian Ponyta on my team. A glance at the known version exclusives suggests I picked the right version in Shield.

    Whilst Lilligant is not in Galar her Alolan counterpart Tsareena is. I will likely have a Tsareena on my team in my Galar playthrough. I used the Fruit Pokemon quite a bit in Ultra Sun and she was a key part of my Grass Monotype playthrough. I found out originally that Lilligant was originally a three stage line but was cut to two to match Whimsicott as they had designed too many Grass types for Unova. I speculate Lilligant's middle stage was cut. I imagine it to have been similar to Steenee.

    The Let's Go games are very cute. Pikachu and Eevee are very cute in their interactions with the trainer as they can be played with. Also following Pokemon are in Let's Go. I had Vileplume for most of my playthrough as my following Pokemon. My starter Pikachu was sat on my shoulder. You can dress your starter too in a nice touch.

    Yup, been too long so I had to fix that ^_^

    I think you have brought together quite a few characters that are alive and colorful. I might be a bit of a slowpoke reader, but I'll be reading this one till the end! I'll stay on the look out for chapter 10. indeed, it is interesting how characters and situations can evolve differently from what we originally plan. Has your favorite character appeared yet?

    Same hear, busy work season. I haven't bought a Nintendo Switch just yet, but I expect I will next month. I was going to wait until Sword/Shield is released and maybe check out a few minutes of a Let's Play to make sure I want this game, and if it still looks good I will buy a Nintendo Switch lite (Zacian Zamazenta edition) and Pokemon Shield. I'm 99% sure that you can count me in on gen 8 though, I really love what I have seen of the Galar region so far. I am glad that gyms are back, but also glad for the continuation of regional forms, the world looks beautiful, I am psyched for the starters, I want to try Gigantamaxing, I love England and it's history and look forward to a region based on it, and I need that long, slinky event meowth that is coming. In general I adore the gen 8 pokemon, and the fairy Alcremie is my next favorite after Galarian Ponyta. I hope the speculation is true that Galarian Rapidash will be a Pegasus. Good luck to you on your shiny hunt. Rapidash is my second favorite shiny after Milotic, so game freak had better get it right with shiny Galarian Rapidash! :)

    Congrats on your Vileplume, Fearow and Charizard, especially Charizard since he is another of my all time favorite shinies. Black is a dragon's color!

    I do want to play Let's Go when I get my switch lite too. Shiny hunting looks nerve-racking though, I can't imagine being timed when I am trying to hunt a Pokemon, and also having to try to feed pokemon berries like you would in the safari zone. I don't know if I am made of strong enough stuff to shiny hunt in Let's Go, but I want to at least play the game once. It looks super cute.

    Lovely hearing from you, I hope you have a splendid weekend.

    Hello VisionofMilotic . We haven't spoke for a while.

    I am pleased you have enjoyed 'The Rose Of Team Magma' so far. Our protagonist has settled into her new role as a member of Team Magma. I really like how she looks after getting her hair done at the Magma salon. Rose is a smart girl and is always learning. Initially John was slightly different to what he is now but he was still the librarian for Team Magma. Rose seems to like him though. I do have a favourite character in my story but it is not Rose herself.

    I will have the next chapter up in the next couple of days.

    It has been a very busy season for me mainly with work. I now have a Switch and have completed Let's Go Pikachu. Whilst it is a little easy it is very fun to play and it is nice to see all the old Kanto characters in 3D. Shiny hunting is slightly different in Let's Go. I currently have only 3 Shinys - Vileplume (Caught as an Oddish, Fearow (A sickly green colour but still a Shiny) and a black Charizard.

    I too am excited about Galarian Ponyta and have pre-ordered Shield. I plan to Shiny hunt Galarian Ponyta too.

    I hope you are doing well.

    Hey girl!

    How's it going? I had a blast reading The Rose of Team Magma, and wanted to catch up with you. So I thought it was time for a scribble on your profile. Are you having a nice autumn? Looking forward to pokemon sun and shield. I sure am excited about that Galarian Ponyta. I hope you are doing well my friend.

    Hello VisionOfMilotic. I hope you are well

    The only Pokemon game I have been playing of late has been Pokemon Go. I do plan to have an Unova runthrough before the Galar games come out though.

    Talking of Sword and Shield Milotic has been confirmed but some Pokemon will be missing. I don't expect Lilligant to be in the Galar Dex but I can always use her in Unova to Alola games.

    I am continuing writing The Rose Of Team Magma as our protagonist finds herself adapting surprisingly well in her new role.
