I am currently playing Pokemon Diamond and trying to level my Slowbro.
Earlier I beat the Elite 4 another few times to level my Slowbro.
I am now currently at my 19th Elite Four run for the past 3 days.

Later I will be leveling my Larvitar up to Tyranitar, thank god for the Jolly nature and I always got a extra Adamant nature Larvitar just in case.

Then once again I will be leveling up my Jolly AND Adamant natured Slakoths to Slakings.

I just obtained a Elekid, with a adamant nature, AND electrizer. And now have to wait a week for my cousin Marc to come up to get myself my Electivire.

I've recently acquired new interest into playing my Diamond file again, which means that I'm actually going to do some "preference" training. Seeing as I've had rough times battling on Wi-Fi (not to mention a whole bunch of people saying I have abnormally low quality Pokes. Basically, their stats are lower than they should be). So, I've pulled out my Modest Lucario of level 50, and training it to level 100. I believe this should fix things.

Then, I'll get back to getting my Male Adamant Ralts to Gallade... assuming I can find the corresponding Stone in the underground. Which isn't going very well. I think that once I get my Gallade, I'm going to go for my Kingdra, and perhaps my Giratina. And perhaps get back up to using my Dialga while I'm at it.

In other words, I believe Pokémon Platinum came at around the right time for me to get back to work.

I have begun again.

I got someone to hold my treasures, and embarked on yet another journey through the region of Sinnoh. I want to take it slow. I informed the Professor of my name, it being OJ (my initials and nickname).

After doing the usual rushing around, I strutted down to Lake Valor, where I saved. I am soft resetting for a Mild or Rash Piplup, preferably female.

I plan to add a Croagunk, Sandshrew, Murkrow/Charmander, Mareep and Aipom/Munchlax.

Diamond:

Still hatching eggs for a shiny Qwilfish. I have to do a few IV battles later on a couple Qwilfish that stand out, and see if they have more than flawless attack and speed. I'm working on my 21st box of Qwilfish eggs, hoping one of them decides to be purple.

Pearl:

Up to Palkia in Pearl, played the game all day on Tuesday to get up there. I'm currently SRing for a shiny one, hopefully with a Timid nature(using a synchronizer). I have done 50 or so SR's for the shiny space dragon, hoping it'll shine quickly.

pearl: bred a houndour, elekid, and shroomish in preparation for platinum.

diamond: nicknamed my shiny cubone, and still trying to breed for a female modest eevee with wish. i've had plenty of modest males so far, but only 1 female. and that was mild- bleurgh! =/ getting rather impatient over it, so might just give up and keep the best looking male 1 i can find and use it instead... trying to raise more money too, since i'm critically low on funds now and have run out of nuggets, lol. after i've finished with all the breeding i'm going to hunt for a shiny meowth again, and hopefully be more lucky this time round! ^^'

edit: ooh, finally hatched a modest female eevee- yay! ^___^

Battle Tower is Haxed. Lost my Wondertomb on the 270+ Streak with a Scrappy Kanghaskan with a Reversla and Salac Berry... all of my spheres are lv. 99 now.. Cant get anymore spheres due to that my Sphere slot is full.. @ off topic, does anyone here know where to trade items that require huge sphere sizes? like 70 + or 80 or 90 + or so?

I caught rotom, finally. I had been SRing for a shiny one, but no luck. Oh well.

He turned out to be adamant natured. I hope that's a good one for rotom. I was aiming for a neutral nature, but no luck in that, either.

I'm going to breed tons of rotom for my planned platinum. I love him... ;479;

Trying to complete the pokédex on my Diamond, though i'll eventually give seen as I don't have Wi-fi. Nevertheless, I've got he data of 130 pokémon.

I've also tried a non-EV trained, sort of random team for the Tower but I got wiped out by a Rotom with Thunderbolt which killed both my Crobat and Empoleon...

Guess I'll EV train a Garchomp or Tyranitar. OU sweepers are usually a good choice aren't they?

I had a 35-battle streak in the Battle Tower with my Sandstorm team until it all came crashing down with critical hits left and right, but it's Pearl version so what else can we expect?
So I'm trying again, still trying to earn a Stone Edge TM for my Dugtrio.

Pearl:
Got my Salamence to lvl 100, and she is the second member of the '400+ guild'. she just made it with an attack of 401. The other member is my Groudon.

The 400+ guild is reserved for pokemon of mine that get a stat over 400. A very exclusive club indeed. I'm thinking the next member will be an Aggron.
Even more exclusive if the '500+ league', which currently does not have any members.

Diamond:
Got my party up to level 58, including the newcomer Houndoom, who was a bit behind. then I decided to try out league-stomping, and discovered my team was actually alright at it. I only lost my Torterra against Cynthia because she Dark Pulsed me as I was going for a Wood Hammer. 13HP + recoil = K.O. Then I fought Barry, and had an embarassing three casualties, before I just DD'ed up my Gyarados and swept. Grr, don't mess with the Gyarados.

Offered Feebas for Uxie, thinking nobody would really want to give away their one-off Pokemon until I recieved it! So I thought to push my luck, I'm offering another Feebas for Rotom, fingers crossed!

I restarted. I got all my pokemon back, and decided the first members of my team. I defeated Roark with Prinplup and got all my pokemon and items back.

Prinplup has a Lucky Egg now, so its growing steadily! I'm just about to beat the Commander in Floaroma, then i'm going to reset the day and time for a Drifloon.

20th September 2008, 11:42 PM
Diamond: Still hatching Qwilfish eggs in hopes of hatching a shiny one. I am working on my 25th box of eggs, crossing my fingers that one will be shiny. I replaced the old male and female with 2 new ones:

New Male: 7 / 31 / 28 / 1 / 30 / 31
New Female: 18 / 30 / 18 / 29 / 30 / 31

Hoping that when the shiny one finally hatches, it has Flawless Attack/Speed and maybe Defence/Special Defence.

Pearl:

Haven't touched it in a while, am still saved in front of Palkia, but am more interested in hatching a shiny Qwilfish first. I have 100 SR's for the shiny space dragon, but no shiny ones yet obviously :p.

I ventured through Eterna Forest, after deciding that it had to be 24 hours 'til you could get Drifloon and as it was Saturday, I passed.

I am now on Cycling Road. My only team member is Prinplup (Doof slave lol), who is now at level 31 (Lucky Eggz<3).

I'm going to halt my journey and search for a second member, aswell as a third. This will be the set up, methinks.

- Empoleon
- Sandslash/Gliscor/Mamoswine (I traded some pokes over)
- Toxicroak/Gallade/Heracross
- Ambipom/Snorlax
- Ampharos/?
- Drapion/?

opinions?

I hatched four rotom eggs and gave them all Pokérus. Now I've been EV training my first rotom in special attack. It's hard to keep track of how many EVs I'm giving him. >_< ;479;
I've been training my shiny luxray. I love her sparkle. I just don't know the best place to train a level 30 Pokémon.

Hm... I've been arranging an electric team. I'm wishing gardevoir could learn thunderpunch in Diamond. I'll find another thunderbolt TM somewhere.

I found an event Electivire on the GTS. I love the cherish ball animation. I wish cherish balls could be found in-game.

Stupid wi-fi still ain't working, waiting for a new router to arrive which could take up to 14 days from today so I'm pretty annoyed. Been doing the battle tower but keep getting impatient and turning it off, working on a streak today will give up after 49 and continue in a few days..

21st September 2008, 8:32 PM
Someone I know was kind enough to trade me a shiny piplup! I'm EV training him in defense. His special attack is higher, though. He's now a prinplup and we're about to take on Mt. Coronet. (geodude.)

I'm still waiting for someone who promised me a shiny torchic. Waiting and waiting. They said they'd meet me over two hours ago. :p

My shiny piplup... his defense is a disaster. I've been giving him EVs like mad, but his defense hardly increases! I need to get him up to level 50.

Mega edit:

Today, I went cresselia hunting. I threw ultra ball after ultra ball at it. I ran out of hyper potions and ultra balls. I threw regular Pokéballs at the ugly thing to stall. (timer ball.) One of the Pokéballs caught her!

You can see her if you don't believe me.

22nd September 2008, 12:25 AM
Diamond: Not much, other than did a bit of training, caught an Unown, and did an experiment with Shellos(Wanted to see which forme it would take if its parent was a West Side Gastrodon and was hatched on the East Side of Sinnoh)
Pearl: Hatched an Elekid Egg that was sitting in my box for a while. I knew what nature it was, which is why I was keeping it. When it Hatched, I was a bit suprised to see it Female. Now EV training Her in Attack and Speed. Gyrados don't stand a chance against her Father(My Electivire).
EDIT: Pearl Update: Finished with the Attack EVs, and now Elekid is Lv.21. Working on Speed EVs, almost done with those too. Then I have to get 4 HP EVs.

I've been EVing my prinplup again. I've lost count of how many graveler and onix we've fought. Iron Island is a good place for defense EVs.

My precious shiny prinplup evolved. I love shiny empoleon. We're going to fight a bunch of tentacruel for special defense.

One thing, though. The cresselia endeavor was so expensive that I was left with under 2,000 in money. I used to be able to buy gorgeous ribbons every day. *sigh*

I'm trying to EV train in speed now. I seem to be wearing floatzel repellent. I hope floatzel are more common somewhere...

1- Defeated the 7th Gym, and then I went to Mt. Coronet.

2- Almost got defeated by Cyrus on Mt. Coronet, this was a very close battle since my Pokémon were WAY under-leveled. (Around 6-7 less levels.)

3- Caught Dialga with a single Dusk Ball. (Not surprising since Dialga got 30% catch rate.

4- Managed to catch Mesprit with a Dusk Ball. ?
I walked back and forth Route 203 and Jubilife City, and every time I saw it, I used Bite with my Torterra (It was slower so I put the Quick Claw.)
Then every time I saw him/her, I threw a Dusk Ball. I eventually caught her.

5- Caught Uxie with Dusk Balls at around 22h30. (It actually was harder to catch than Mesprit.)

6- Caught Axelf with Dusk Balls at around 23h20. I got helped by Uxie's Yawn.

I started breeding for an ice punch sneasel.
It was very expensive. I don't have a lot of money on my game. I'm not doing this again anytime soon.
I finally got a male ice punch sneasel. I don't care if his IVs are all 0 and his nature is wrong, I'm not going through this again!
Although I have a nice ice punch buneary now.
I had a lot of trouble finding a male medicham, though. I just had my venusaur use razor leaf and threw one out of three ultra balls I had left. (cresselia used up all of my previous ones.)

Decided to SR for shiny Giratina for something to do while I waited for Platinum to arrive. I was watching something on youtube when I glanced down and the blue beast was staring at me :D. I managed to get it to sleep and caught it in a Luxury Ball after it broke free for the previous Luxury Balls at 2 shakes and then 3 shakes.

It has a Calm nature, my Bold synchronize didn't work, but I won't complain. I also managed to get my copy of Platinum today, gotta pick it up at the post office shortly.

I finally decided on a BT/In-Game team and have been EV training them. They're three Over Used Pokemon though, and I'm not too happy about that fact, but oh well. I'm using

Tyranitar
Gengar
Blissey

I'm searching for a Doubles fourth Pokemon, maybe another wall or a tank...

i bred 171 spiritombs to get a modest female spiritomb. Took the whole day so i couldn't do any SRing for any of my targets.
All the modest spiritombs and their IVs:
17/4/0/19/31/31 HP ice 65 (female)
4/4/22/2/9/31 HP water 47 (male)
14/4/28/5/31/5 HP Ice 50 (female)
21/4/27/17/31/5 HP dragon 52 (female)
14/21/27/17/31/31 HP dragon 53 (female)
21/4/31/1/31/4 HP psychic 52 (female)

What happened with SPECIAL ATTACK??
jeez back to breeding................. :(

Any suggestions?

EDIT: just checked my careful natured ones don't need to worry about SPattack for these ones cause i'm looking for an attacking one out of these.

22/14/24/17/9/31 (female)
12/25/13/31/31/31 (male) ARE you serious why couldn't it be modest?
5/12/15/31/31/2 (male)
27/16/31/30/7/4 (female)
3/21/31/24/31/31 (female) NICE!!

Any suggestions on what i should train or breed together on both natures?? I'm a noob at breeding :D

I think you should get the best of each 20 breedings and breed with other best
For example, I use Dittos, I have around 40

I´m Rare candying my Breeded Ralts to reach lv.30 and calculate IVs

I have all of these Rare Candies by a legit way, ok?

So I went and caught that volcano crab as quickly as I could. I got a mild natured one as well. Yay.

3rd October 2008, 4:55 AM
Diamond: What am I doing here? Have a guess.
Still SRing for a Shiny Dialga you say?.. Yup, you got it ~

It has been almost a month since, but...
Diamond: Dun dun dun duuuun ~ http://i34.*******.com/2qve1dy.jpg (http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc261/halcyonXlll/Pokemon%20GBA%20DS/SR%20Shiny%20encounters/halcyonXlll_Shiny_Dialga.png)
Yeees, click it. Look, i'm controlling your cursor with my words alone! It's moving towards the Shiny icon.. It's gonna click!.. Um, did you click it yet? D;'
(Oh, or click on that Shiny bar in my sig if you want to see a shot that hasn't been, er.. defaced =P)

Anyways, I caught that on the 1st of October, after SRing since the 7th of August. As always, well more or less, my Syncher failed; I got Naughty instead of Quiet ^^;
With that task done and dusted, I carried on to Sunyshore and defeated Volkner for the 8th and last Gym Badge, and headed off to the Pokémon League.
My team was very under-levelled, so I sent over my Lv. 65 Shiny Flareon from Pearl temporarily to aid in smooshing the Elite 4, and that it did. The only notable problem I had was against Cynthia's Milotic, due to a mix of all but one of my team being weak to Surf/Ice Beam, and that said one which wasn't weak to those attacks was unable to deal enough damage thanks to it's own attacks being mostly ineffective, as well as the presence of the foe's Aqua Ring ;/
I got there in the end, by sending out Cherrim after PP stalling Milotic until she couldn't use Ice Beam anymore.

Right now, I am on the north-eastern island. I'll either press onwards to clear Stark Mountain's volcano, or i'll waddle on down to Turnback Cave and SR for a Shiny Giratina.. Er, or i'll resume fishing for a Shiny Magikarp in the Great Marsh.. Oh, the choices 8D

My current team ~

- Lv. 58 VAPOREON/Raine, Bold nature. EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/6 Special... Umm, Special Defence.. I think :x
Surf / Shadow Ball / Blizzard / Baton Pass.
- Lv. 51 CHERRIM/Sunshine, Adamant nature. EVs: 252 Atk/252 Spd/6 HP.
Return / Solar Beam / Swords Dance / Sunny Day.
I'll transfer her to Platinum and teach her the Move Tutor attack, Seed Bomb at some point..
- Lv. 55 SMEARGLE/Bubbles, Jolly nature. EVs: 252 Atk/252 Spd/6 HP.
Endeavor / Sacred Fire / Spore / Dragon Dance.
I arrange this guy's moveset to suit the current situation's requirements. When I begin SRing for Giratina, i'll probably replace Sacred Fire/Dragon Dance with Foresight, so that I can use Endeavor on it =P
- Lv. 50 STEELIX/Earthbite, Serious nature. EVs: random.
Rock Smash / Crunch / Iron Tail / Stone Edge.
- Lv. 44 AERODACTYL/Tempest, Jolly nature. EVs: random.
Crunch / Fly / Ancient Power / Roar.

.. And a psychotic Bibarel. Hmm..

Pearl: I sent a Shiny Lv. 65 Flareon to Diamond, so it could help out beating the E4.. But you knew that already =3

3rd October 2008, 6:53 AM
Well I started to breed again to get a shiny. So far I have hatched 814 eggs (from total 1012 eggs). So you guys see here, I am really hoping that shiny one will appear at 1000's like some ppl here. If I'm finished hatching 1000 eggs that means it will be my biggest record for breeding.

I don't think I will be that lucky. I'm never lucky on such things. If the shiny doesn't show up after 1000 eggs, I think I will... no, not kill myself, but prolly breed for a new one. Or if I don't feel fed up, I might continue it.

Well I was bored today after school so I decided to get some of the 4th gen evos on my pokedex. Today I got Gliscor, Probopass, Leafeon, and some others that I can't remember and don't feel like turning on my diamond. Tomorrow I'm going to get a togekiss and a number of others.

3rd October 2008, 2:05 PM
Have been breeding for decent pokes for future platinum game. Got my Adamant Turtwig with Seedbomb, and Adamant Chimchar with Fire/Thunderpunch. Settled for a Modest Abra rather than Timid, same with Mild Spiritomb/Lapras, rather than Modest! Now going to hatch final 2 Spiritomb eggs, hope for a Modest. If not, stick with Mild. Then going to breed for a Jolly Starly. Then recoup financial losses from breeding and then head back to Battle Tower to get more Battle Points. Beat Palmer for first time 2 days ago - first try whoo! Single Battles. Usually do tagteam with ingame characters as it's easier to get BP. After doing all that...train the final few pokes to get them to evolve and complete my 'dex.

I'm putting together a team of starters. Two water, two fire, and two grass.
So far I have empoleon, squirtle, blaziken, charmander, venusaur, and grovyle.
I'm not sure if I'll let the grovyle evolve. I like her as she is right now.
I had an extra Exp. Share on Emerald, so I migrated it. Now I can train squirtle and charmander at the same time.
I wish I had a Johto starter on my team, but I can't replace charizard. I don't have a totodile, either. I don't want to replace any of my grass starters. So, I guess I'm stuck in that sense.
Now, to test out this team...

I made a different team that is 2/3 steel. (well, I'm using two of one species, but still...)
I managed to capture a beldum yesterday. It was so hard that I migrated a masterball to use on it. Now everyone is going to think my metagross is hacked. *sigh*
It was adamant natured and had pokerus. The pokerus, however, cured itself overnight. *double sigh*
I'm training my new metagross in Stark Mountain. It could not be going more slowly. Psychic, meteor mash, take down, cut. It's the same thing over and over again.
My spheal finally caught pokerus. It took so long.. x_0
I taught one smeargle spacial rend and another roar of time. I find that amusing.

Att: 31
Def: 31
SpA: x
SpD: 22
Speed: 31

It's my first quadruple-flawless Pokemon and I'm so proud of myself. There were lots of times I wanted to give up but fortunately I didnt. I know there are some flawless IVed Gligars on smogon, but I didnt have anything to trade anyway. And it feels really good when work pays off:)

I'm not sure yet about the nickname. Currently I'm EV training him in HP. I'm so happy:)

I decided to try Smogon's recommendation for zangoose. (sword dance one) I bred a relaxed zangoose with my jolly everstone ditto. That ditto came to me by luck, before I even knew what natures meant. I hatched a jolly female zangoose on my first try! I thought I'd be breeding for hours. (not to mention expenses.)

I named her Zeka. (zee-kä or zeh-kä) I hope that name doesn't mean anything in a language that already exists.

I've been EVing her in attack. I maxed out EVs before I knew I was halfway done. Now I think she's level 20 and her attack exceeds her hit points.

I looked up "Zeka" and I think it does mean something. Oh well. I'm not re-naming her.

Did I mention I gave Zeka Pokérus? That helped a lot. Now I'm off to give her 4 EVs in defense. Then it's on to speed. I still need TM shadow claw, though.

Trained a Rapidash just for the fun of it, also hatched a Rotom because I was going to help someone with thier dex but they didn't need it.
And today I traded a Lugia for a Latios to give to somebody so they have it in thier dex, also recieved alv 100 Glaceon for a Lugia over the GTS. And a lv75 Flareon for a Lugia, the Flareon I got had like 14 Ribbons including some contest ones, her beauty was maxed out too. (I think it's an XD Flareon too)

I realised that the only way you can get the Gligar evolution-item is through the Battle Park. I need to collect 48 Battle Points. Unfortunately I dont have a real Battle Tower team yet, that's why it's not gonna be easy. So I'm currently in the Battle Tower with Gligar, Skuntank and Empoleon.

Oh and I've changed Gligars nickname from "Mike" to "Stuntman". It sounds way cooler. The character limit is too short for "Stuntman Mike", which is a shame.

6th October 2008, 8:14 PM
Been a while since I posted here...


Main Pearl: EV'd a Kyogre, a Latias, a Latios, a Regice, and a Garchomp. Raised the Latis and Kyogre (as well as an Umbreon) to Level 100. Also obtained all the Power Items (Power Anklet, etc.) from the Battle Tower.

It's kinda funny that Garchomp became Uber shortly after I finished EV'ing him, though...Anyhow, currently leveling Regice to Level 100. He's Level 79 ATM. I'm thinking of EV'ing (some of) the Pokémon I have now and raising them to Level 100.

Second Pearl: Finally got around to beating the E4. Traded some stuff to my main Pearl. Also caught Cresselia and Mesprit (I SR'd after) to check their Natures/IVs so I could decide whether or not I could get something good for them (I don't really like Cresselia + I already have two Mesprit on my main Pearl, so yeah). Mesprit's Docile...And Cresselia is Bold but has bad IVs, so I don't think they're worth bothering with.

Main Pearl: Checked the Lottery, got nothing. Currently leveling up Regice, he's Level 88 89 at the moment. Going to aim for Level 90 for now, that's if I can get Fisherman Alec (the guy with the two Gyarados) to battle me...Might trade my Garchomp to my other Pearl so I can raise him to Level 100 there. Thinking of EV-training my Mew or my Jirachi once Regice is Level 100...

Second Pearl: Nothing yet...I might catch some good-Natured Legendaries once Regice reaches Level 100 (before I EV-train something else, that is), though. Thinking of keeping this save file (for a while) so I can trade eggs from my main game to it, then trade 'em back once they've hatched so I can get boosted EXP.

I'm already thinking about my next breeding project, even though the Gligar Project was very exhausting and took me like 5 or so months. But hey, I'm a Pokemon Breeder, that's what I do and what I like. I consider three Pokemon for the project, so first I gotta decide which one it is going to be.

Currently I'm at the battle tower with Gliscor, Arcanine and Empoleon. Gliscor is taking physical hits like a champ.

I've gotten pretty bored since completing my second ever Diamond file a couple of months back. On my file, i've beaten the Elite Four, done some of the the post-E4 activities and cleared some of Battle Island. However, at some point, I plan to defeat the rest of the trainers on the Island and partake in the Stark Mountain sidequest.

Meanwhile, i'm contemplating putting together a Battle Tower team for the first time. I was going to on my first file, but decided to start a new file. However, i'm now prepared to carry out my ambition. Currently, I have a Brave shiny Ralts who I am EV training towards being a healthy Shiny Gallade :D. The rest of my team is undecided as of yet.

I recently started chaining. I'm having really not much success and it's bugging me a bit. I wish that there would be a Minun swarm because I really want a shiny minun. Also I really want a shiny shinx. I completed the league and I'm doing well with the national dex. Hurrah!

I finally caved and bought Pokemon Diamond to go with my Pearl game. I started off with a modest Piplup, and I've caught the standard Bidoof, Starly and Shinx. I did think about a scramble or a monotype, but I think I'll just play through. This is mainly just because I've been wanting to play D/P again from the start, and also so I can get the legendaries, possibly SRing.

Anyway, I'm in Jubilife, and here's my team:

Piston (Piplup)
Whitney (Shinx)
Solis (Starly)
Chipper (Bidoof)

I'm going to make some more catches, and then level for a bit.

Main Pearl: Checked the Lottery, got a PP Up. Bred a Phione 'cause I just felt like it for some reason. Released some unwanted Pokémon to free up space in my PC.

Second Pearl: Currently SR'ing for good Legendaries...I'm having bad luck ATM, since I either get an unwanted Nature, or a wanted Nature with poor IVs... *sighs* -_- I wish there was an option to release party Pokémon without going to the PC (as long as they don't know HMs), 'cause I forgot to dump one of my Pokémon in the PC beforehand... *headdesk*

I EV trained it, and now just leveling up it to lv50 for the battle tower. It is now an ambipom witrh technition ^_^ i was praying that it wouldn't get pickup. It has double slap, fake out, u turn and aerial ace and it holds silk scarf which is very nice. Can't wait to use it in the battle tower.

Nah, I don't feel like buying the DSi. You can't play GBA games there anymore, so yeah, I won't buy it. =P

Anyway, back to topic. I recently had a trade with a friend of mine this morning, and I traded my Bagon to him since he needed one. I also made some evolutions using my broken DS (a.k.a. the DS I broke & the reason why I bought a new one xD), and evolved some Pokemon during the process, like my Porygon-Z & Dusknoir.

I'm planning to train both my Infernape & Torterra, but I'll have to leech them for now, since they're still low-leveled.

Relicanth scares me more, though... for some odd reason. ;369;

Now I'm E.V. training my female torchic. I need to give her pokerus, too. I want a special kind of blaziken. Sky uppercut+brave bird+blaze kick. The ultimate combination.

The Pokémon in my signature are metagross and chimchar, in case you're wondering.

I've been training my Infernape lately, and it's on level 51 as of now. I'm also currently leveling my team, but I' more focused to Infernape this time due to lack of Fire types in my team. I'm also trying to level my lv. 90 Salamence, and it could be my next lv. 100 Pokemon. Also, I evolved Scyther & Seadra this afternoon.

Still waiting for Pachirisu to pick up a Dawn Stone, but I think I should get the Dawn Stone in my other Diamond instead, since I haven't played it yet.

Meh, I EV trained a modest Magmortar. Its PKTOPIA, yes, but 31 Ivs in speed and Spa makes up for it. I tested a ScarfMortar revenger on shoddy, and it was pretty good.

I'll also ev my 31 speed Jolteon today. Tomorrow I'll tackle Rayquaza. Maybe.

I just received my infernape from the GTS, as described here (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?p=8768734#post8768734). I had wanted one for a while, but was feeling lazy.
I'm trying the battling combination of blaziken and infernape. I love it. Together, we will conquer all of Sinnoh! [maniacal laughter] I never knew they would be so good together.
It's weird, though, that infernape out-speeds blaziken even if my blaziken is twenty-two levels higher. Hm... maybe blaziken isn't a good one for speed?
I replaced infernape's flame wheel with aerial ace. I might get rid of flare blitz or fire blast, but I'm leaving them for now.
Oh, and I managed to find a heart scale. The heart scale magnet is now desperate for heart scales... :( I used to have at least seven with me - what happened to them?

"Oh my goodness! All 5 digits match! This is just so incredible!"

Yeah, I got a Master Ball, thanks to some random Staravia I got in a trade a long time ago. I have nothing to use it on, except for maybe a random, rare shiny that might run away (and I never find shinies). Then I randomly strolled into Amity Square, and after my first 200 steps, my Pachirisu ran across a Thick Mushroom, the rarest item it can get, and something I'd been after for a while. So I had a pretty lucky day, yep.

I think I'll breed for a docile male ralts. I wish gallade could be female...
I already have a male kirlia, but it was chosen specifically for gardevoir. (he's modest..)
I like the neutral natures better than all the others. That way, you don't have to worry about stats getting lowered.
Anyway, I used the GTS to evolve my porygon. A quirky porygon-z would be hilarious, I think. It's already quirky enough.

I've been switching between EV training two teams in Emerald and Diamond. In Diamond, i've been EV training my Shiny Ralts in Attack against Shinx on Route 202. There's still some way to go with it, but amongst all the wild encounters during training, I was rewarded by an encounter with a Shiny Starly. It completely caught me off-guard as my mind was completely geared towards training Ralts, but it was very welcome as that makes my first random encounter shiny in Diamond (although I have a few chained ones lol).

I'll be continuing EV training Ralts, and then i'll shift my mind towards thinking of who my other team members should be.

13th October 2008, 11:08 PM
I hatched countless ralts in search of my docile male.
Steps - nature gender; ability
5527 - docile female;sync
6037 - lax male; trace
7312 - modest female; sync
7822 - rash male; sync
So, I hatched some more. On the second to last one, it was finally a docile male. *phew.*
I've been EV'ing him in attack. It is so hard to EV-train a ralts in attack. Either that or his attack IV is zero. I'm finally able to evolve him into gallade, so hopefully his attack will turn out better.
I'm thinking to evolve the modest female into gardevoir. My gardevoir/gallade combination will be unstoppable.

Well this is kind of related to multiple pokemon games, but in effort to try and 'catch em all' I repurchased FireRed and Emerald because I'd given them away, but I found out today that they were bootleg/fake/trash (which is apparently really common in pokemon, so be careful). I bought them from Sebronco.com and after doing some searching, they've actually had a lot of problems including trademark infringement, etc...So never shop from them, you will get illegal copies that aren't compatible with the legit copies of pokemon among other issues..

Basically I wanted those two games to be able to catch the 'dual-slot' only pokemon from those versions and get the G/S/C Starters as well. Basically $40 wasted with no hope for a redemption: lesson learned, moving forward.

Now I'm going to have to figure out how to trade over the internet, although I doubt I will ever be able to get anything of worth to get anything I need to fill my pokedex. Ah well...hopefully I can find legit copies of FireRed/Emerald someday. :'(

Stark Mountain is my favorite place to level up. It's easy with a level 100 water type and Exp. Share, of which I cloned several to migrate.
I'm training my level 5 team for the baby league. It's hard to get them to only level five.
I got a female, level 100, Japanese blastoise from the GTS. I'm using her to train my feraligatr, as mentioned earlier.

I'm still trying to get one of every pokemon. I have few pokemon left to breed, but over 60 eggs to hatch :/

Luckly, today's swarm was Pidgey so I caught one. It saved me the trouble of breeding for a female one. Now I just need a Female Houndour and Suicune in order to have a exact copy of my old Crystal team :D

Wow, it's been a long while since I last updated on here . . . Here's a quick sum-up:

Toph - PKMN Diamond
Time: 731:42
Pokedex: 445/492

- Feebas Search: After breeding my first Milotic (Fino) to get a female Feebas, I gave up on breeding one. Instead, I spent a day or two with my other male Milotic (Mikuri) in Mt. Coronet until I finally found a spot! (Yesh, I did it.) Ended up catching two nice female Feebas that day - one with a taste for dry Poffins. YAY. - Mission is a SUCCESS.

- Elite Four Eevee Update: Still working on it. So far I have my Leafeon (Hyouta - male) ready. Currently working with Glaceon (Onyx - male) and Flareon (Tovah - female), but I plan to complete this prior to end of year. WHEE.

- Breeding Season: Thanks to breeding, I've gotten a female Bagon (Clare) and another on the way, plus a male Slakoth (Senri). I've been bored, can't you tell?

- Shiny Get?: None as of yet, but I'm searching for either Shiny Eevee or any Shiny I can run into. (Heck, my only Shiny on Diamond is my Altaria from Ruby . . . that is so crappy, but I LUV him so much.) I think I'll aim for a Shiny Feebas at the least. Wish me luck!

- Trades/Battles: Met a friend of mine for a free battle. I lost, but I could I win vs. nearly all LV. 100s? Other than that, he says he'll trade me some good PKMN, including a Mewtwo, Jirachi, the Regi trio and an Articuno. Awesome. Maybe I'll even get a Kyogre or Rayquaza too, if I'm lucky. (I love having nice friends, nyu~)

- Other Happenings/Events: Still trying for Master Rank Contests with Mikuri (he's got 22 ribbons thus far), but I totally fail. *crosses fingers* Yet more PP Ups from the PKMN Lottery in Jubilife . . . GAH. (I want Exp. Shares, not PP Ups!) Shall try again in Battle Tower to finally reach the Battle Tycoon guy . . . (I'm so weak, nyu~) Got another Mudkip from GTS . . . still waiting for a Totodile to complete my starter collection . . . (anyone wanna offer a trade?)

And that's all for the past few weeks, I guess.

I had started again, but I changed my team. It is basically the animals I have (hedgehog called Sonic, persian cat called Jasper, goldfish called Rio, normal cat called Lulu, parrot called Charlie) and then a Gallade called Hiro 'cause it seems to fit and I love Heroes :x

17th October 2008, 11:40 PM
Well, time for my daily update of what I've done. First of all, I did the usual dailies, and again, I won nothing. Secondly, I caught myself a Drifloon for dex data purposes. After that I planted some Chesto Berries to use. Got 5 from each plant, 2 plants. I also caught the Lake Trio for dex data. And finally, I completed the tedious job of training my team to level 55, Hippowdon taking ages.

Been trying to get shinies via pokeradar. Also using cloning glitch on emerald for rare candies (for my ev training) so those extra pokes I trade with the gts. Got a few good lvl 100 pokes, going to check ivs to see if I can use any of them for breeding. Just today I dug up 3 heart scales (dang things are rare for me to find in the underground) and an amber, now trying to get the nature I want on the aerodactyl. Funny how for all the time I spent building a wifi team (one more poke left to train) I have not been battling on wifi at all.

I started a new game!!!

I started with chimchar and then caught a budew.
Then chimchar evolved and i caught an aipom in a honey tree (yay)
I currently have 2 badges and im in that Team Galactic building in Eterna City
Check out my trainer card below (my budew hasn't evolved because iv'e been playing at night)

Manix
18th October 2008, 6:44 AM
Diamond: More issues. Honey Trees are aggravating. No Aipom as of yet. Or, Male Murkrow in Eterna Forest.

Teh team:
Plusle Lv22
Minun Lv22
Budew Lv22

Did I mention I trained a bit? Budew isn't happy enough yet.

Shadow Tepi 8
18th October 2008, 8:54 AM
Got annoyed at leveling up my Ninjask so temporarily quit
Began SRing for shiny Anorith and shiny Aerodactyl
Began breeding my Togetic-going to raise Togekiss
Soon will continue my Ninjask leveling up-its taking too long

Manix
18th October 2008, 11:26 AM
Diamond: Finally. Budew evolved. Took an extra 20000 odd steps to help evolve it. Smashed Jupiter, and Gardenia as well.

Gardenia's Roserade got beaten by my level 23 Budew. I didn't use any items, and I still beat it. xD

Teh team:
Manix (Plusle) Lv25
Riz (Minun) Lv24
Kylie (Roselia) Lv28

Pearl:
Tried chaining for Smeargle. A shiny patch appeared at 10...the chain broke at 27 by a smeargle.
Male, level 16, relaxed, quick to flee, own tempo

Gave it pokerus and send it to my Diamond file for storage

By going through the Hearthome Gym, Rio, my male Jolly Goldeen evolved.

I'll be levelling him to about 45 for the next gym I think. I can now access my next team member, Glameow. I'll be catching a female one and naming it Lulu after my dad's cat :)

My team as it stands:

Rio the Seaking, level 33
Sonic the Sandshrew, level 19 (these two are to be in my final team, in training)
Gligar level 40 (not in final team, really handy to bring along)
Empoleon level 40 (same)
Slaves (Bidoof and Starly)

Future members:
Lulu the Glameow
Hiro the Male Ralts
Charlie the Chatot
Jasper the Meowth

I did a lot todaym starting out as usual, doing daily stuff. I got myself a few Tmer Balls by showing some guy a Tentacool. Then I beat the life out of Volkner in Sunyshore City, and win myself a Beacon badge. After that, it was time for my final preparations for the Elite Four. I surfed up the Route and healed, before I want into the dreaded Victory Road. It was some quick xp and some nice dex data there, dit it with a guide though, I hate that cave. Next up was my nooby rival, being.... nooby. Healed up once more, and then I went through the gate to my first opponent of the Elite Four, Aaron. His bugs were like the worst pushover ever. Easy kills for me, Hippo taking on his nooby Drapion. Then Aga-I mean Bertha and her earthquake spamming teams. Empoleon, 'nuff said. Third up was Flint, this weird guy I met in Sunyshore. Pushover victory #3 for me. Then my worst fear in this League Challenge came true, a Light Screen boosted, dreaded can opener of doom (read: Bronzong) Dang, that thing sucks. It took down Skuntank, Hippo and Luxray before going down to Empoleon. Cynthia was.... easy. Milotic and Chomp were noobs, Spirit in a bottle was mediocre, as were the other three.
Then I started by obtaining and Eevee and evolving in into Leafeon. I also migrated some Pokemon from FR, and checked my swarm, Absol. Caught one of them and started chaining, my highest being a Shellos West chain of 13. I aslo explored the Battle Zone, and caught more Pokemon. Stark Mountain with Buck sucks, so I'll do that later. I also have a Cresselia, and currently I'm in the League again trying to level up my Dragonair, which I'll do tomorrow.

19th October 2008, 12:55 AM
Levelling is really quite easy. My Seaking is now a healthy level 46. I just need to gt Sandshrew and Glameow to the same level then i'll carry on. Next stop is Snowpoint, will trudge through the elements there.

19th October 2008, 1:09 AM
I decided to take a break from my breeding spree. So I stopped and tried to train my Lucario (today is the two year anniversary of getting it in my Jap. Diamond ^_^) But I stopped after it started to take too long x.X. Meh, so instead I caught a swarming Farfetch'd and migrated some pokemon from LeafGreen that were holding some evolution stones and TM's.

Sir Marly
19th October 2008, 7:03 AM
Went to Veilstone or whatever its called and got completely owned by Lucario.
Went down to Pastoria and went into the Marsh to try to catch a Carnivine. Failed on that. Currently searching for Carnivine/Skorupi.

Haven't got a good natured Togepi yet...
Restarted leveling up my Ninjask again-currently Lv. 73
Bred my high IV Metagross with Ditto-got quite a number of adamant and jolly Beldum's which should have fairly high IVs

- Still currently breeding Hoppips, but I'm about to stop and start breeding Minun, Plusle, and Pachirisu with Hidden Power Ice.
- I EV trained my Modest and Rash Gamestp Deoxys. Rash is in Attack Form while Modest is in Normal Form.
- Battled my rival with my newly EV trained Attack Deoxys.
- Got Heatran up to Lv100. I knew my Heatran was pretty sexy when I caught it, but now I've found out it is one of the sexiest Heatrans ever!
Heatran - #485 (Modest)
HP: 3
Att: 13
Def: 27
SpA: 31
SpD: 31
Speed: 30
Modest #485 Heatran: 3 / 13 / 27 / 31 / 31 / 30
Hidden Power Type is 'Ice'. Hidden Power Power is 68.

Oh yeah.

DieChavsDie
19th October 2008, 1:28 PM
Havent been using this thread at all, so ill jump through all the non-important storyline stuff.

- Caught Palkia yesterday. It is Timid, and has the following IVs (Metalkid, precise IVs)

Timid #484 Palkia: 28 / 6 / 10 / 26 / 4 / 30

Hidden Power Type is 'Fighting'. Hidden Power Power is 49.

Not that bad, considering I wasnt trying to reset for a decent Palkia.

- Swept Volkner with Bulkitty (Glameow's evo). This rounds off my gym challenges, giving me a sweep with each gym. The sweeps were:

Roark - Monferno (Mach Punch obviously)
Gardenia - Mothim (Turns out its Hidden Power is Bug, which I used to 1HKO Cherubi and Turtwig, and I used a combination of Hidden Power and a Crit Hit Confusion to 2HKO Roserade)
Maylene - Chatot (Nasty Plot, then Chatter)
Crasher Wake - Charrim (SunnyBeaming)
Fantina - Lumineon (Everyone else on my team so far had swept a gym, so Lumineon got to sweep Fantina. General Surf abuse won it :D)
Byron - Bulkitty (Possibly my most amazing sweep lol. Because everyone else had swept a gym, Bulkitty had to, which gave her Byron. So for that gym match, I entered with 2 pokemon - Bulkitty and Infernape. Hypnosis and Assist won me that match)
Candice - Chatot (After getting in 2 Nasty Plots, I swept her with Chatter)
Volkner - Bulkitty (Hypnosis and Body Slam won me that match)

- Then last night I randomly felt the urge to go and catch some of the pokemon Id missed along the way. So after recieving Shieldon, and catching Geodude, Kricketot, Abra, Shinx, Gastly, Bonsly, Zubat, Onix, Machop, Magikarp, Wurmple, Buizel, Pachirisu, Hoothoot, Meditite, Ponyta and Bronzor, I checked the natures. However, I accidently scrolled to far whilst reading through the list, and was shocked to see 4 letters in the top hand corner of my Mothims page (Who I had put in the PC for Bidoof so I could get Ponyta/Bronzor). "PKRS". I checked Bulkitty (Who was also in the PC, but she didnt have it). I then checked my party, and found Infernape, Chatot, Cherrim, Lumineon, Starly and Bidoof all had PKRS, the first time Ive ever caught it. Im ECSTATIC :D

My team at the moment:

Infernape (Male) Lvl 48
Mothim (Male) Lvl 48
Cherrim (Female) Lvl 48
Lumineon (Female) Lvl 48
Chatot (Male) Lvl 48
Bulkitty (Female) Lvl 50

Bulkitty is already at the level my whole team in Diamond was at when I faced the E4, so I hope it might be easier than it was then (And even then it wasnt difficult)

Whew, finally finished larvitar breeding. Got this as my final result:

Attacks meh-ish, still, its plenty enough given Tyranitars mammoth base stat.

Now I need to train it.

I just started a project of blaze kick chimchar.
I got a female infernape off the GTS for one of my many groudon.
Then, the hatching began.
I'm keeping the third that hatched, a jolly male.
I evolved him into monferno. I absolutely hate monferno. I can't wait until he evolves again.

My Firered team hath now been sent over to my Pearl version. Whether or not I can bother to evolve Feeder the Seadra and Slyther the Scyther is up to me.

In addition, Mewtwo-in-Pokeball has been sent over, bringing my Pokedex up to 483. Splendidly I own all non-legendaries in addition to only requiring 10 Pokemon to obtain whatever it is that happens at completing a full dex.

Aurora Valor
19th October 2008, 10:04 PM
Sent over my Sapphire team, and caught Pokemon. Swarm was Phanpy, so I caught one. I also chained some more, record now is Machop chain of 14, I'm getting the hang of it. Finally I have bred a ground Type team for fun, so I do not breed for good IV's/Natures. I might EV train it though. The team will be: Hippowdon, Tyranitar, Flygon, Donphan, Steelix and Garchomp.

19th October 2008, 10:57 PM
Lost to the champ at elite 4. Not surprising though, all my pokemon are in the early lvl 50's and I don't have anyone to trade my Onix too to make it evolve

I also had my Abomasnow win the Ultra Rank of the beauty contest. It wont eat anymore Poffins though so Im having trouble with the master rank

I sent a clone of my maxed beauty feebas over from Emerald.
I was smart enough to feed it Pokéblocks, as I had a few pamtre berries.
I realize that my shiny milotic was raised on pamtre berries. They can make a feebas evolve before max sheen, even if it's neutral to dry food.
I named him Wallace. I had hatched two feebas and both of them had neutral natures. I wanted a male, though, and the first was female. I'm making an anime-themed team, you see. I have the Beatles team, May's team, the mix anime character team, the starter team...

Main Pearl: Got alot of PP Ups from Jubilife, EV-trained/leveled up some Pokémon, and planted some of the rare Berries (Enigma, etc.). Planning to obtain (if applicable)/EV-train/level-up some more Pokémon while I wait for Platinum to be released in the US (I'll import it then). Might breed some Pokémon for a playthrough of Diamond...

Second Pearl: Finally (re)captured Cresselia, will trade it to my main Pearl so it can sit in my PC as trade fodder/future 'Dex filler (I don't really like it, so yeah) once I've finished training a few Pokémon. Going to think of a nickname for my Palkia before I trade him over to my main Pearl.

Diamond: This has been gathering dust for a while...I might play through it again sometime.

I'm working on the Buizel Project.
The point is to collect buizel from as many trainers as possible.
What I do is clone groudon and offer them on the GTS for "any" buizel.
Many times, I've received what I consider to be the perfect buizel. I wonder if these people know what they're giving away. (I bet they think the same of me.)

I finished the Chimchar Project.
The point was to hatch a female, docile chimchar.
I got six eggs. My ideal one hatched from the first.
It had 6 in all stats except HP, which was 12.
I've EV'ed her in attack and speed. I'm using her and blaziken to create a solarbeam combination.

Yesterday, I caught two swarming Surskit in Diamond...

Today was the two year anniversary of me catching my first Dialga. Sure, that might not sound like a big deal, but my Diaruga is very important to me. So, I took my baby and gave it both massages (Veilstone and Resort Area), then I took it all the way back to Spear Pillar, for memory sake...

Don't look at me like that ^_^;;

I've been working on the Snorunt Project now that the Chimchar Project is completed. I'm trying to get as many snorunts as possible and trade them away to the poor, frosslass-less people. I now have two/three/four girls perfect for frosslass. The problem is, which one will I evolve? I do intend to keep a few, you know.

22nd October 2008, 5:30 AM
Trying to hatch for a good Naive chimchar... so far no luck.
Will probably just store in my box for whenever i decide to EV train it like so many other un-trained decent pokemon.
Once I hatch a few more eggs i will do the dailies.

Aurora Valor
22nd October 2008, 9:15 PM
Well, as I couldn't upate for a few days I have to keep it quite limited today.
I caught a Delibird, and a Zigzagoon. I chained a bit, but none got higher than 14. So no shinies. I also continued leveling my Ground guys up, Onix is now level 31, Gabite is level 31, and Trapinch is level 32. I'll do Larvitar and Phanpy tomorrow. With the daily stuff i won a Background in the lottery, and a few Quick Balls for showing the guy a Staravia. So... that's about it.;444;
I might go fossil hunting om something tomorrow, I'll tell you by then. Bye.

22nd October 2008, 9:47 PM
On Pearl I pointlessly resorted my PC system, only to sort it back again to the exact same way it was before. I also evolved a Snorunt into a Glalie (which I didn't have) taking my Dex up to Seen 463 Owned 463. I don't have Wi-Fi (gasp), making it infinitely difficult to get the remaining Cyndaquil/Totodile/Entei/Raikou/Suicune I need. Oh, and the FR LG legends too.

On Diamond, I teamed up with Riley and owned everybody in my way. I have always been a fan of the small teams, for use in the storyline, because they are much easier to train and leave room for pickup/HM slavery. Cycling back and forth between the two halves of Canalave racking up the hatching steps on the Riolu egg. About to take on Byron and his goons.

22nd October 2008, 10:03 PM
I evolved my modest snorunt into frosslass. I don't care about the moves she learns, as all her planned moves are TMs. I've been EV-training her in special attack and special defense. (just two random stats I want really high.)
I now have almost a box full of snorunts. Hehehe...

Cosmar
22nd October 2008, 10:21 PM
Main Pearl: Checked the lottery, didn't get anything...Watered the Berries, hoping to get more than one from each plant >_>; Traded some stuff (including my Palkia, which I finally nicknamed) from my second Pearl. Trained my Lugia a little...Though it's kind of taking a long time for him to level up, since his only attacking Move ATM is Swift (hey, he's a defensive Pokémon...). Going to train my Lugia, and maybe EV-train my Mew (yeah, I'm mostly training Legendaries ATM. I want to get the ones I currently have in my Party to Level 100 before I think about training non-Legendaries).


Second Pearl: Traded some Items and my Palkia over to my main Pearl.

So now, I plan to breed my Leafeon and my Ditto to get an Eevee, evolve it into a Glaceon, get it to level 47 (I think) and learn it Ice Fang, breed Glaceon with Mightyena and get a Ice Fanging Poochyena. Ah, I love breeding; Endless tiring over small non-exsistent eggs to try and get a creature with a certain move.
