    You're not the only one, I just Google some ideas. XD Google is your friend~ Or so they say.

    ...Don't let the PS3 leaaave! o: Mine will be getting some attention soon when I get some money. Sims 3. :D Never played Call of Duty before but I really have wanted too for some reason, just to see what everyone was getting all excited about really. Aha, you're playing some good games there!

    Yeah I'm not too good with the whole breeding thing. Be it moves, natures or IVs. I'll have to check up on that at some point.

    My PS3's said it'll leave if I don't show it some affection. Not to worry though, Call of Duty Black Ops is out soon, it'll get a lot of attention then! Until then however, Zelda Windwaker/Pokemon XD will see me through the night.

    Yup, good old U.K! Hmm, well I suppose different ones have different stocks I have a strange one nearby I guess. Wow, that was bargain in the making for you.

    Thought so. It isn't! It's rather easy once you get used too it. Yup! It's like that! Yes, IVs are difficult, I was being taught them before but that was a while back and now I've completely lost it out of my head otherwise I would help you with IVs. Never heard of that but I'm not surprised there is something like that.

    T.T Poor PS3! You'll have to start using it eventually!

    A CEX store? Are you from the U.K too? Yeah my local one doesn't have Gamecubes in-store, though they do have some online. I was going to order one online as well as a copy of Pokemon XD, until I saw a Gamecube currently for £3 on eBay with less than a minute to go before ending.

    Yeah WEP's not as strong as WPA. EV training is the first thing I'm learning. Not so hard to do! Give them some proteins and what not, then train them the rest of the way! My Rampardos now has 450-460 Attack because of it! I'm still shady on this IV business. I'm not even sure how to find out what a Pokemon's IVs are. Also, I noticed people are able to change Pokemon's IVs by the use of RNG manipulation, or something. Not sure I'm for that, but each to their own I guess.

    My poor PS3's become neglected due to all this Pokemon malarky. I barely play it of late!

    I have! CEX the shop has a small amount, when I say small I mean tiny. I think I have those two games as well actually, but I've never thought of selling. Too precious. <3 I don't sell things often unless I can't actually use it or have something waaaaay better.

    I know that would be nice to see but I don't think they will do that because nobody (excluding you) has ever thought of it I bet.

    My dad wont let me change it, viruses and such apparently can get in easier or something to that effect, I've never been allowed to change it. I use it for battling, it's pretty tough as there are so many EV trainers out there! I love EV training every so often too so I do love the challenge out there you can get. Trading never was my thing.

    On the shelves? I've not seen a Gamecube in a store for years! Only on sites such as eBay. I also still have my Legend of Zelda Windwaker Collectors Edition. That's worth about £30-40+ too. As it has the Windwaker game as well as all the previous Zelda games (Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Master Quest and even the SNES ones!).

    True indeed, retroness in all its pixelated glory! I only wish there's something similar to play DS games on your TV.

    Ah, your router's security is WPA? If you change it to WEP, you'd have to reconnect all your electrical appliances that use it (laptop, PS3/Xbox/Wii, etc.). Do you normally use Wi-Fi for battling? Or for trades? I had never battled before, until Saturday and Sunday. It seems more complex that I thought! Some people have a real thought out strategy, while I just sent out some beefy Pokemon! Saying that, I've won 2 and lost 2. Beefy Pokemon FTW!

    Damn, that's a lot of Pokemon games to be playing at once! I was playing XD too, but I just couldn't be bothered to play it any more it kinda just drifted off, Colosseum was always better for myself. I'm not surprise actually at that, I've seen a far few GameCube games and gone "What the heck, how much?!" at it then shuffled away; GameCube's are barely on the shelves now. T.T I miss them, mines starting to overheat now and I will be wanting a new one but yeah...

    Oooh, lucky you! You do have a lot of luck somehow. Aha, but it's the fun you're having not the quality of the game on the screen. It's like playing an old game and having loads of fun yet it's one of those crap ones.

    True, true. Dugtrio is a pretty difficult one to spot. That's the problem with shinies, they seem to pop up when you don't ever have anything on you or you have a weak Pokemon on your team and they are like level 37 and you have a level 7 out as you where training or something.

    I lost the stick for my Wi-Fi, my dad had it and I'm not sure were it vanished too. But my Wii has Wi-Fi from using my router but the security setting won't let my use that to be my Wi-Fi for my DS so I do have Wi-Fi technically in a way just not were I want it.

    I'm actually juggling a few Pokemon games at once! I'm playing Platinum, Soul Silver, Heart Gold, Emerald, Mystery Dungeon (the time one), Pokemon Ranger and... Oh yeah, soon Pokemon XD for Gamecube! Oddly enough, all the DS games only cost me about £6-8 each while the Gamecube game cost me £30 alone. Apparently there's not many copies of it nowadays or something. Nostalgia costs a lot!

    While buying back and old Gamecube ( for £3 off eBay, ftw!) I noticed the previous owner also left one an extra. It attaches to the end of the Gamecube to enable you to play GBA games on your TV! So I'll be playing Emerald on a 40" screen!.... just a shame it won't be in HD, lol.

    Yeah some shiny Pokemon are obvious to spot like the gold coloured ones, but some are only ever so slightly different. Thing is it caught me totally off guard! I didn't buy loads of Pokeballs or have any strong Pokemon (traded them all from my Pearl version to Soul Silver). I've never encountered a shiny Pokemon before, so I just had to bag it!

    Oh yeah, how come you don't have Wi-Fi anymore?

    The only reason I thought of Halloween was the PokeCommunity's theme currently is Halloween.

    Well everything takes time! Once you feel as though you want to paint it, you'll do it even with extra work, if you want it done you'll get it done as soon as you feel you have the money and time to do it. It'll look great once you get to doing it though!

    Yes, it will be most likely similar I have to admit after joining a few other forums, it is pretty similar. All right, if you do get stuck I'll be glad to help. Well, for me it's just at the time what my favourite thing is maybe you could have a theme of what you did on your Pokemon game just recently? Ahh, I wish I had Wi-fi on my DS still. T.T Have you gotten their Pokemon yet? Wow, I'm surprised you never noticed it was a shiny Pokemon it's something I've always noticed when they appear (not often like...). Oooh, you were so close to losing it, but I'm glad you didn't, you have now a shiny (and you the fact you would have gone mental is scary!) to show off somehow.

    You know I didn't even think about it being Halloween soon, but it is very appropriate indeed!

    If I was to take it one step further I'd get my PS3 custom painted, to be black and orange. On the Official Playstation Forums I'm part of, someone posted a picture of just that. It looked too awesome. I'm too lazy at the moment though, and it looks like I'll be working more hours at work soon!

    I think I'll be ok with assigning an avatar and signature. I've done it on the Playstation forums and another site. It'll no doubt be similar. It's just what to have which is the question! Electivire's cool, Rhyperior's cool... maybe a shiny Dugtrio to mark my first shiny capture! I just couldn't believe it. I was browsing the trade thread and noticed someone was looking for a Trapinch, Misdreavous and such. So I said I could get them all. I went to capture a Trapinch, then all of a sudden a Dugtrio appeared with blue noses. I thought it was rather odd, then I saw the sparkle as it appeared. I was totally surprised! Most of my Pokemon had fainted, and the ones who were concious were fire/rock/steel types, which Dugtrio is super effective against! I would have gone mental if all my Pokemon were to have fainted, or if I ran out of Pokeballs (I only had 8 Pokeballs and 1 Premier Ball!).

    It looks superb! I'm a fan here. Orange and black always do seem to look pretty epic together, I'm a big fan of the mixture and also it seems quite Halloween-like as well as if you've taken the tradition coming soon into mind. Actually yes, I've seen a black and orange room an it looked fantastic, but with your PS3 and such matching that would be a brilliant.

    What about your favourite Pokemon or something to that sector? I don't make mine either so I put credit in my Biography saying that I found mine from another website and go away with that. But I tend to Photobucket it all, really it's preference of website. Aha, you do better than me with paint then, I couldn't even draw a stick person. Lazy is goooood! o: Do you know how to change your avatar and signature by the way?

    Congrats on your shiny! :D

    Ah, I've changed my background around! Nothing too swish right now, just subtle colour differences. Orange on black always looks awesome. Come to think of it, that wouldn't be a bad colour scheme for my bedroom, most of my appliances are black (TV, PS3, PC)!

    I'll think about my avatar for now, it'll no doubt be Pokemon related. Like having Electivire or something. Need to find a good picture, no rush mind, I'm quite fond of the little ninja boy... Er... not fond of him in a Gary Glitter way though! My Paint skills are quite limited, to stick people. So I don't think I'll be creating a signature anytime soon. On the other forum I use, someone else made it for me. And people said being lazy was a bad thing... pfft!

    I know how you feel, when I started I was completely lost too, but if you have help it gets you far.

    This may be long....XD;

    Right-o then. All you need to do for your profile to get colours on it is: Go to the top left corner where "User CP" is and click that and a drop down menu should appear with at the top "User Control Panel", click that. On the left side you will have a bar with many hyperlinks in which you can change settings and such, look for "Customize Profile" in there you can choose your font and such. If you click the boxes (which should be blank) it will come up with a far amount of colours you can choose from, you can play away with them. Or I use a website and copy and paste the the numbers and letters into the box next to the colour chooser. <- That's the website if you want to use it, there's a fair few colours there. For us poor regular members we can't use background images like others but if you did want to, you'd have to donate to the PokeCommunity forums.

    If you want a Profile picture (which is on the top left of my profile) you will need a picture either from your computer or a website which is either 130x130 pixels or 64.0KB big then you will need to be were you are for your Customize Profile only you will have to find instead down the left side bar "Edit Profile Picture". Insert the web address (which is the www. part, just in case) or click Choose file and find it on your computer, then it should appear on your profile as long as all the stats and such are right.

    Yeah sure, my profile could probably do with a bit of sprucing up. I fear my Microsoft Paint skills is an acquired taste.

    I think my only customisation so far has been inputting my information, lol.

    I just saw your post on "Do you customise your profile much?" and I was just wondering if you wanted to know how to customise your profile and such? Because if you do need help, I'll see too it. :D If you don't, I'll shoo. XD
