    Ahh.. After I figured out what I was actually doing I got my first Rufflet on my first try. The second seed was really hard to hit though v.v I hit it twice out of about ten hard resets. How did you find your real initial starting frame so fast? The calculated starting frame hasn't been right for me yet! >:/

    *Further stimulates conversation to boost post count to show off my amazing Rufflet's sprites*

    I cannot agree with this more, I always have a TV or something on in the background while I RNG. Especially since advancing frames is perhaps the most monotonous task in Pokémon I can think of.

    Also congrats AngelZodiac on your Rufflet. Rufflet is actually a great choice for your first because being male only means no egg moves to worry about and being a 5th gen Pokémon means no 4th gen moves to worry about.

      Awwwww cute fluffy birds. I love Rufflet. He's ruffly. :> Chirp. And I love Mac's Pory2 cause I helped evolve it and it's a virtual duck. Though I found Round an odd choice of move, but OH WELL.

      I have no classes today and my advisor is stupid and said "LOL SEE YOU IN MAY" and I'm already behind on registration so that's just...stupid. SO. I need to think of something to RNG. Oh, but last night I did do my first successful Pokecheck clone. Cloned my Tepig to trade with Vaporeon cause I loved dat Electrike. ;o; And I think I might clone another, EV it, and trade it to my English White. Having a Charizard is boring and last time I had Emboar, I restarted the game halfway through. I think I owe it...HMM. Maybe I should RNG Snivy.

          Well, I haven't given it the moves that I want to give it yet. The father knew round and it since it was a TM it inherited it. I am going to give it Tri-Attack, Discharge, Ice Beam, and Recover.

            Well, it's been a little bit since I've RNG abused or even played Pokémon for that matter. Just been crazy busy. Finally got some free time to do both.

            Here is my entry for the challenge. I'd say 80% - 90% of the time I have a Gengar in my party. Gengar has always been one of my favorite Pokémon. So I present to you...Gastly!

                HP Fighting isn't bad, it gives you coverage over the 4x effectiveness rock types that will ruin your day, even if flying types still hate you.

                Hey quick question, if I take a scizor with bug bite and breed it with a ditto, will the scyther have bug bite?

                idk who'd wanna use it for that though. :(

                If it's a male Scizor it should, but only if it's an egg move or a learned move I think. Because you can't pass gen IV move tutor moves, sadly. :( That's why I need to learn how to RNG good IVs in gen IV and not just shiny eggs lol...I hope the move tutors make a return in B2W2.

                Too bad I wasn't around then, haha. :( A walk sounds good tbh though. I should have taken one today. I guess if you count walking around most of Walmart, then I suppose I did take a walk.

                edit: Just got this. Lots of chatter advancements involved, so I'm happy it only took two tries to get it haha.

                yeah, yeah, time for my entry. Btw, what other Pokemon than mine can be a lucky amulet? (Chansey's name in Japanese is "Lucky")


                freshly hatched, lvl 5

                Nature: Bold | Ability: Natural Cure | OT: GONZO 61325
                IVs: 31/18/31/31/31/31
                The epic move: Seismic Toss

                "Freshly hatched on level 5? Yeah, Gonz0, good joke!" Apparently, not. I learned 3rd Gen abuse!

                In game, I prefer changes and lack of routine rather than some reliable folks. It makes the in game boring. Palying the game with the same Pokemon for the 5th time? Not for me. On the other hand, since the very beginning of my competitive battling adventure I wanted to use reliable Pokemon rather than creative. It's still this way. One of the first Pokemon I used was Blissey. Everytime I create a new team, Blissey's there. Unfortunately, since the very beginning I had to rely on a fully redis one and I always wanted to have a Seismic Toss Blissey on my own. Finally, my dream came true, and here she is :D
                I lost many battles that Blissey took part in, I also used many times Blissey as my late game sweeper (srsly, I did). It's not my lucky amulet, but a Pokemon I trust, and I try to put in all of my teams, even it doesn't really fit and get kicked of it.
                BW brought a useful tool - eviolite and I'm totally going to test my Chansey with it :D

                  Awesome entry and nice touching moments from the past =)

                  I got another RNG Pokemon by the way ^-^ It took me a while because I had a few complications.. I sort of forgot about how if you deposit a chatot into the PC it loses its custom chatter I realized that on like my seventh hard reset.

                    I had to restart on my Black and there aren't any better water Pokemon! I decided to make a team of only shiny flawless Pokemon that I'll use In-game and then maybe try some competitive battling =) Never competitively battled before.

                    Using RNGed Pokemon ingame isn't cool, really. destroys the fun of the game. Well, you can try on Pokemon Online first. Easy way to begin.

                      Hmm.. having spectacular IVs in every stat wouldn't ruin the fun that much, but I was planning on maybe RNGing the same Pokemon with maybe 15 or 16 in all stats or maybe picking a random number for each stat. In the end EV training makes much more of an impact on In-game playing than flawless IVs, which people do EV train their Pokemon for In-game quite a bit.

                          i had missed so much, and i'm going to end up at the bottom if i won't do anything, so for the challenge :l

                          I CHOOSE...
                          VENOMOTH!
                          Violet

                          Timid
                          Lvl 1
                          31/x/30/31/31/31
                          Hatch at Pinwheel Forest
                          Egg Move: Baton Pass

                          i chose venomoth because it always gets me out off a rough sitch, with quiver dance and baton pass, it's one hell of boost support. and it flutter elegantly, too.

                          Good to see you back, loucas!
                          You've got very nice Butterfree there! (Venonat looks like Butterfree's pre-evo and Venomoth is more Caterpie-like)

                          AWWWW. I love Venonat. It's my favorite Bug and it's so fuzzy and great. -cuddles up with it-

                          And yeah, using RNG'd Pokemon in-game is kinda...yeeeeeeeah. Haha. But I guess I can't talk because two of my party members in SoulSilver are RNG'd, and another party member in HeartGold is too. Though they were only RNG'd to be shiny, and not have great IVs so I guess that balances that?
