    Default Shop-of-all-Trades

    Have a useless Shard, Apricorn or Shoal Item you’ve been wondering what to do with? Bring them to us and we can convert them into an Evolution Stone, Special Pokéball or Shell Bell. The rules are pretty simple.

    Hand in your shard (with a link to where you received it) and you will receive a riddle. The answer is a basic Pokémon which you will be required to obtain through capture, trade or hatching (adopted Pokémon are not accepted). Return the Pokémon to me along with its level, gender and a link to where you obtained it. You get your stone and the Pokémon goes to the Adoption Centre.

    * Once you have handed in your Pokémon, that Pokémon no longer belongs to you so it must be removed from your active party. You do not have the right to trade it to another member after it has been handed in for the completion of your quest.
    * Do not collect your stone until I have given you confirmation that the Pokémon you have handed in is the correct answer to your riddle.
    * Please be sure that you definitely want to complete your quest when handing in a shard because once you've submitted it for a riddle you cannot withdraw the shard to trade it away. If you no longer wish to continue with your quest, let me know and your shard will be tossed into the Shard Shop furnace and your riddle removed from the Active Quests list.

    ::Shards & Stones::
    Red Shard -------> Fire Stone
    Blue Shard -------> Water Stone
    Green Shard -----> Leaf Stone
    Yellow Shard -----> Thunder Stone
    Gold Shard -------> Sun Stone
    Silver Shard ------> Moon Stone

    Hand in your apricorn (with a link to where you received it) and you will be given 5 random questions relating to Pokémon in general. This could be Pokémon themselves or any questions regarding the games or animé. In order to successfully convert your apricorn into one of the special balls listed below, you will need to answer all 5 questions correctly. If even one is answered incorrectly, the finished ball will be taken to the Casino where it will go up as a prize in the Daily Pick Lottery.

    ::Nuts & Balls::
    White Apricorn ----> Fast Ball
    Black Apricorn -----> Heavy Ball
    Blue Apricorn ------> Lure Ball
    Red Apricorn -------> Level Ball
    Pink Apricorn -------> Love Ball
    Green Apricorn -----> Friend Ball
    Yellow Apricorn -----> Moon Ball

    ::Shoal Salt & Shoal Shells::
    Hand in 4 Shoal Salts and 4 Shoal Shells (with links to where you have received them) and you will receive a puzzle made by me. The puzzle is pretty simple so there's nothing to stress over, and while it shouldn't take long to complete, there is no time limit. Simply submit your answer when you are ready.

    ::Shell Bell::
    4 Shoal Salts + 4 Shoal Shells -------> Shell Bell

    ::Flutes and Furniture::
    Hand in all of those useless piles of ash you've been collecting (with links to where you have received them), to receive something nice in return. No quest or problem solving riddles are required for these conversions, all you need do is wait till I've had some time to work on your items before returning to collect them.

    ::Flutes & Furniture::
    Ash x25 --------> Blue Flute (Wakes a sleeping Pokémon)
    Ash x50 --------> Yellow Flute (Gets rid of Confusion)
    Ash x50 --------> Red Flute (Destroys Attraction)
    Ash x100 -------> White Flute (Wild Pokémon encounter rate rises - attracts wild Pokémon)
    Ash x100 -------> Black Flute (Wild Pokémon encounter rate decreases - repels wild Pokémon)
    Ash x600 -------> Pretty Chair
    Ash x800 -------> Pretty Desk

    ::Active Puzzles & Questions::


    ::Active Quests::

    A little pup I'll bite, bite, bite
    Eating anything day or night,
    I have myself a fearsome growl
    But fight me back and I'll cowardly howl.

    I store electricity in my long hair
    And when rain is near I'll let it flare,
    I'm faster than your eye can see
    So I like to run wild and free.

    I tackle things because I can
    My thick hide protecting me,
    Too dumb to really understand
    Why others don't share my glee.

    I'll loaf around for days on end
    Lost in my own thoughts,
    Usually by the water's edge
    Using my tail to fish for sport.

    I wash and play with my snout
    But I'm strong so watch out,
    I don't mean to hurt anyone
    For I just like to have fun.

    I hoard my food all summer long
    So that during winter it's not gone,
    But honey is what I love best
    With Beedrill finding me an unwelcome guest.

    Dark Searchman
    Small and lean with a bulbous head
    If you're caught by me you'll be filled with dread,
    Although at first I appear non-threatening
    The acid I secrete will do more than sting.

    I do not need much food
    For I very rarely move,
    I'll loll around all day long
    Even when I'm big and strong.

    In the depths of dark forests I live underground
    My spores are so toxic they'll knock you right down,
    I feed on dead leaves until I evolve
    Then enter the world for all to behold!

    Flame Mistress
    I am one but also two
    So will always have an eye on you,
    When I evolve there will be three
    And for the most part am quite nasty.

    Food Guy
    Upon arid plains I do thrive
    For without water I'll survive,
    Once a year upon my head
    A single yellow flower is bred.

    Swimming freely in rivers and ponds
    I cannot stand man-made bonds,
    My billowing fins are a beautiful scene
    Earning me the title of "Water Queen".

    John's Knight
    Often mistaken for coral,
    People build houses on me,
    Cute, coloured Pink and White,
    why can't they just let me be?

    I may be small, but I've got guts
    Attack me and I'll bite your nuts,
    I am cautious to the extreme
    And don't want to be on your team.

    My natural sense is to guard
    Searching for enemies from afar,
    So while my friends enjoy their sleep
    I can wake them with an earsplitting screech.

    Small and fluffy I'm rather cute
    But being a klutz I'm always dropping my loot,
    Not always as harmless as I first appear
    I'll make you cry hard with a flick of my ears.

    I'm very affectionate as well as strong
    My nose is very, very long,
    I love to play by the river's edge
    Then soak up the sun beside my nest.

    A tiny orange bug, prey to big strong birds
    I'll use the spikes on my rear to show them some hurt,
    I like to dream of the day I'll be able to fly high
    As a dusty moth or pretty butterfly.

    I am soft and fluffy but don’t huggle me too tight
    For if you squish a little hard you may just get a fright
    My touch is sometimes shocking so my coat is often shorn
    For making winter clothing to keep you nice and warm.

    I love to fly above the sea
    Scanning the water so I can see,
    My prey who lurk beneath the waves
    Upon whom I feast day by day.

    I'm small and green and live in trees
    And feed upon their many leaves,
    Flying types scare me though
    For when they attack I'm too slow.

    With big sharp fangs I am often found
    Hiding in darkness as I rely on sound,
    To lead me through my darkened days
    Screeching my supersonic waves.

    Missingno. Master
    I do not like to travel alone
    With my kind I like to roam,
    The aromatic fluids we secrete
    Conveying our feelings which is really neat.

    I wash myself with my nose
    Because it works just like a hose,
    I'll flap my ears when it's hot
    To make a breeze and cool me off.

    Mushrooms are my favourite things
    I like to hang around hot springs,
    When I smell good food off I go
    Ploughing through the ice and snow.

    I am small and cute and round
    During the day I bury myself in the ground,
    The richer the soil, the glossier my leaves
    Then at night I wander around sowing my seeds.

    On power lines I like to feed
    I levitate with amazing ease,
    As a magnet I am commonly known
    And in power plants make myself at home.

    Tochukaso grow on my back
    Their medicinal value a well-known fact,
    I don't like to battle for I'm not a thug
    I'm just a peace loving little bug.

    A body of water and eyes like rubies
    I drift along dreamily in shallow seas,
    Try to catch me and I'll guarantee pain
    My poisonous sting will boggle your brain!

    A rock snake with a magnet in my brain
    My body becomes smoother and rounder with age,
    I spend most of my life underground
    Making it hard for me to be found.

    Small and green I sit in trees
    Hiding in amongst the leaves,
    Staring up into the skies
    Dreaming of the day I'll fly.

    My antlers are worth a lot of cash
    So when hunted expect me to dash,
    Around Christmas time I pull Santa's sleigh
    While children everywhere frolic and play.

    I'm over 26 feet long
    My stony body is very strong,
    I have a magnet in my brain
    Zap me and I'll feel no pain.

    I am small and look like a rock
    Seemingly harmless but trust me I'm not,
    Hikers find me cuz they're clumsy fools
    Tripping upon me like blinded mules.

    I avoid the sun because it burns
    So I live in the dark where I have learned,
    To use my ultrasonic waves
    Which lead me through the darkest caves.

    A big pearl on my head I hold
    Bouncing until I evolve,
    For if I stop my life's cut short
    Call me swine, at you I'll snort!

    I've an ugly little puppy face
    Though I'm actually quite charming,
    Affectionate and playful as can be
    But I find battling quite alarming.

    When first born my legs are weak
    But do not take long to find my feet,
    When evolved I'm pretty tough to beat
    With my blazing mane and inner heat.

    Inactive Member Quests are destroyed after at least one year of inactivity.
