I've been EV training a Charizard on Platinum on and off (I wouldn't have bothered, but she had a Timid nature, so I thought, "what the hell"). While finishing up the last of her Speed EVs, I ran into a... (wait for it)
I won't lie, she was a complete ***** to catch, between Leech Seed and Grasswhistle. I paralyzed her with Spike's Thunder Wave, then struck back with Benika's (my Charizard) Dragon Rage, then threw a Poke Ball at her and caught her. I named her Violet for her purple rose.
Other than that, all I really did was get PCPs and Jirachis.

As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.
