Yep. You see that faint blue light in the sky outside of your home? That's their searchlight.

Get to the basement, Chris, with any weapons you have. Don't go down without a fight!

Okay, so we were talking about chaining the other night. I was doing it today and
Spoiler:



12 chains in, and it didn't even show as shiny, so it was a total surprise. <3

Tch I'm too much of a wimp to use moves on shiny Pokemon. I just has my Carnivine use sweet scent over and over again before throwing an Ultra Ball. Caught it on my second try. I don't know if lowering its evasiveness even helps, but in my mind, it does.

Seeking out my next target for chaining. {: I'm thinking Eevee, Ralts, or Electrike.

Shiny Grovyle are amazing.
Too bad I can't chain for one. ]: I've tried MM'ing for one, but gave up after hatching some hundred eggs.

I'll start chaining tomorrow, because I'm off to bed now. Too much stuff to do tomorrow. I: Goodnight, DCC.

I dont weaken shinies anymore, I most times just throw Pokeballs.

Eevee sounds cool for chaining but it has a really low appearance rate, Ive never sucessfully chained it or most Pokemon ;_;

Replying before I go.

That's true. I might have to go for a more common one. T: Electrike is a swarm Pokemon, so that should be pretty easy to chain. Maybe I'll go for it, instead.

Okay, goodnight, DCC.

Usually for shinies, I just throw a Quick Ball or Nest Ball if it's many levels weaker than my Pokemon. Sometimes I'd attack it if I know the Pokemon I have won't do a lot of damage on it. Night Slendy.

I often throw Quick Balls most of the time at shinies, otherwise I'll throw a status condition on them and use Ultra Balls and maybe use False Swipe if necessary.

Swarming Pokemon in my experience are the easiest to chain, also Shinx I found easy to chain managed to get 4 of those and a Sentret one day when I first tried chaining.

If I found a shiny in the wild, I'd try whittling it's HP down as much as I can, and use my arsenal of Pokéballs to get it. That'd be all I could really do.

LOOOL it's a thread where the main premise is that gun control is a given, not to be argued It should be a lot more tame, considering the posting going on right now.

Oh, good. Otherwise, this would've been my reaction upon reading posts in there:



Actually, scratch that. I have a feeling it'll be my reaction regardless of how tame the posting is.

Do plays count as speeches? Cause if it does, I had one last December. We performed a Midsummer Night's Dream.


Eek, I have a date in about 2 hours. Welp

I saw some people put on Midsummer Night's Dream while in roller skates. Well, some of them had roller skates. Okay, only one of them wore them and it was only in one scene, but it was a memorable scene.

My finals schedule got completely turned around today. Instead of having all my finals in two weeks, I'll be taking them all in two days. (Three of the five final exams are next week, but I'm not sure of the other two. But this does warrant that I'll be off from school a week early :D)

I'm so glad I don't have to do exams ever again. Most of my friends are doing optional accountancy/finance courses for work and they're just hating themselves right now and all I can do is go 'hahahahahahaha' towards them. Not literally, of course. That would be mean. But in my mind. :D
