    Do you guys prefer to trade poke for poke or just do BPs now? Personally, I prefer just doing BPs... it benefits me and it benefits the person requesting. I don't really see much of a need to do poke for poke anymore when I can RNG so much

    Hmm. I'd rather do pokemon for pokemon. I've done enough RNG abuses that someone will find some pokemon of mine to love and appreciate. Sometimes I get something really cool in return (shout out to the RNG regulars, duh). I only prefer BPs for others if I want to get that pokemon too. I don't want too many pokemon of my ot (I don't competitively battle much). I'm also reluctant to do a shiny BP myself if I don't like the shiny color. I pick my shiny RNGs pretty wisely. I'm still stuck in my shiny hunter mode grumble grumble.

    ! Either way, I'm getting less active in both trading and projects. :[

    I'm most likely not signing up for it. It's a lot to keep up with and I have a busy weekend. I'd like to keep it simple if I do decide on celebrating Easter @ Trade Corner (e.g. new breed, giveaway, sit on thread titles yeah yeah yeah).

      Hey guys. I'm back. Anyways, I really want to RNG in SoulSilver and have no idea how? But that is besides the point right now. I have a question: I need to advance in SoulSilver which involves encountering Lugia, but I do not wish to capture it just yet. If I knock it out, when it regenerates and I reencounter it, will it be the same Lugia, or could I RNG then?

      It won't be the same Lugia, unless by some miracle you hit the same seed when you first encountered it. Anyways, you can RNG Lugia later on in the game if you knock it out and defeat the E4.

        Okay, I know there are curious people and there's too much crap for me to say over mibbit so here's my VGC team and results. Move the post wherever you will, I have no clue where it belongs.

        Team:
        Quote:
        Dragonite w/ Persim Berry
        Multiscale
        Outrage|Earthquake|Extremespeed|Fire Punch

        Ludicolo w/ Absorb Bulb
        Swift Swim
        Energy Ball|Ice Beam|Scald|Surf

        Zapdos w/ Leftovers
        Pressure
        HP Ice|Thunder|Heat Wave|Detect

        Politoad w/ Wacan Berry
        Drizzle
        Scald|Ice Beam|HP Grass|Protect

        Toxicroak w/ Black Sludge
        Dry Skin
        Fake Out|Drain Punch|Sucker Punch|Substitute

        Staraptor w/ Choice Scarf
        Intimidate
        Return|Close Combat|Brave Bird|U-turn
        Battle 1: Won 4-0
        Managed to OHKO 2 of his pokemon early on so it was already game.

        Battle 2: Lost 0-1
        It was Politoad at 1/4 health and Ludicolo at 2/3 health vs. a full health Garchomp. He used Protect the turn I used 2 Ice Beams. Then he used Earthquake, taking out the 'toad. I did hit him with 1 beam, but it held Yache? berry and so I took off a bit over half, which was useless at that point. He outsped the Ludi and won.

        Battle 3: Won 2-0
        Opponent used Speed Boost Blaziken. I thought it was hacked but talking to a few Smogonites, seems it's possibly legit. Oh well. I threw out Staraptor and Zapdos. U-turned Staraptor straight off and sent Politoad in right as Blaziken used Flare Blitz. He kept using Blitz so I guess it was choiced. Welp, he lost.

        Battle 4: Lost 0-3
        Rain team vs. Hail team. We pretty much kept our weather setters out of the starting ranks in anticipation to the opponent's weather. I lost.

        Battle 5: Won 2-0
        I don't remember this match. I think it was a trick room match? Dragonite uses Extremespeed to the win!

        Battle 6: Won 3-0
        Don't remember this one either!

        Battle 7: Won 1-0
        Another rain vs. hail team. I actually have the video for this one recorded. It's 17-11901-22547 on the GTS.

        End result: 5-2 win-loss ratio. Placed 30th in Pink Flight, unknown overall (I'm identified under 2 PIDs and still waiting on Pokemon staff to correct it)

        Final notes: I ended up never using Toxicroak. Unfortunately, the championship was fairly fast paced and so much damage was done at a time that Toxicroak would have been crushed fairly easily. And considering I saw 2 Cresselia and 2 Bronzong, it was just as well. Zapdos and Staraptor were both MVPs. Zapdos took a lot of hits and just laughed at most of them while Staraptor got 2 Intimidates in in most of the matches. The bugger actually Intimidated a Tyranitar to the point where its Stone Edge did only about 1/5 of the damage to Zapdos. I see why gems are so popular, but in the battles where I saw them, the gems were pretty much doing overkill to moves that would have KO'd anyways. All in all, it was fun and anyone who has the opportunity to should go. Over 700 competitors were there, and over 300 were placed in the Masters age group. Thanks goes to Blade and Twisted for throwing together 4 pokemon for me. And I think, Mia, because the Toxicroak is hers? Oh, and to the guy who bought me a free lunch. :D

        Folks, if anyone tells you that the only good pokemon are RNG'd, it ain't true. At least, not completely. As long as your team is built right, IVs in the right places, trained right and you're familiar with them, you'll do well enough. Admittedly, 4 of my pokemon are RNG'd, but my two stars (Staraptor and Ludicolo) aren't. If you're curious of their IVs, go ahead and look at my shop and scroll down to them. (But don't post, please.) There's no way in hell I'd be able to use any of the new pokemon since my experience with them in competitive battles are nil.

          Wow, Griff, I'm glad to hear you did so well. I wish I had known you before -- I would have totally wanted to help you with any Pokemon that you might need. I've been pretty busy lately but I would have tried to find time to help out

          Oh gosh, I have to admit, there were some very annoying things though. Masters registration was supposed to be at like...10:30 and battles start at 11:30 or something like that. Rumor was that the organizers didn't expect so MANY people to show up. The line for registration actually went down the sidewalk. It was so bad that registration for masters didn't start til like 10:30 and battles started at around 3:20, because of the line and the fact that the Juniors and Seniors had to finish their tourneys before we could start.

                Had I known there would be other people from here at the VGC's, I would have tried to meet with you guys. Pink flight was fun to play in. :p I went 5-2 and finished 19th, 38th overall. Would have had a better score but my powerhouse mons didn't have max speed IV's and lost because of it. I need to learn to RNG.

                Sh-, you were there too Mikey? Grats on your rank~
                I wonder how they ranked people. It looks alphabetical, rather than win-loss each match thing. If that's true, I'm pretty much guaranteed near the bottom of the list, forever.

                  Gr8 actually has my pic up on his warstory thread. I'm the short one wearing grey tshirt under the grey hoodie with khaki pants and a 1-strap teal schoolbag.

                    I dunno my psp wont let me look at spoilers. I remember see Gr8 though, didn't talk to him though. Lol he vs'd one of my friends though. 2 of my friends kept taking turns letting the other play after each battle. xD

                    I was wearing black hoodie with a navy blue beanie with a white stripe on it.

                      If you knew the species of the eggs and have 20 or more different species to offer; yes, you can open a shop.
