    Haha, yup, I did the same thing, X. But I ran into shinies a lot back in my silver days, 10 of em besides Gyrados. Then I didnt see another until White, when I caught a shiny Cofagrigus and hatched a shiny Litwick.
    I've AR'd a bunch of shinies, my most recent being for theme teams; Lucian and Lexa, an Eevee and Pichu, and Sin and Lisana, a Ralts and Misdreavus.

    On a new note: while playing SS the other day, I noted my Charmander had a really high spec attack, and he has a beneficial nature for it. On a whim I calculated his IVs and it turns out he has a 30 in spec attack. So I'm wondering: what's a really good special set for Charzard? Since it's in SS I'll probably be going with Heat Wave and Dragon Pulse but I need two more.

    Well, I like Air Slash, for Stab, and then Focus Blasts to take care of those Rock types that he has nightmares about.

    EDIT: giratina hates shaymin: I can give you one of the event Celebis from my HeartGold, if you'd like.
    I never had a shiny either, I had to use a cheat on my "special chip" pearl to increase the chance of shinys appearing to 1 in 100

    Also I'd just like to throw this out there but what do you feel about legends? I wanted to build my team with groudon but I'm not sure anyone here would like to battle that, so I'm looking for your opinions

    On the subject of legends, I personally only use non uber legends (I know, we aren't competitive, but the tiers are a good measure of power) but I don't mind fighting ubers, as long as it's not like a team made up of: Groudon, Raquaza, Kyorgre, Mewtwo, Darkrai, and Shaymin-S.

    I don't see what the big deal is with using legends in just a play-through. They're there, so why not use them? I get that in battling it's a different story, but the tiers are a good way to measure power.

    Speaking of shinies, I've noticed an odd trend. I have six. All but one of them? Captured on Nuzlocke runs. It's like the game knows.
    As for legends ... if there's no pokemon I've got that's better, then yes, I'll use it, unless there's rules or something stopping me. Full power, maximum destruction!

    My special set normally ran Air Slash/Focus Blast, the former for flinch hax and STAB, and the latter for coverage of those pesky rock types. I liked Solarbeam + Power Herb so you can pull a fast one on a Swampert before you get stealth rocked

    Also mtie123 you're in!

    Joanie, I could never Nuzlocke. I like seeing my pokemon develop over time, especially when they lose a battle, then come back later to win it.

    I've done my fair share of challenges, a nuzlocke on diamond, firered, black (failed unfortunately), ruby (also unsuccessful), a solo Onix run on diamond which was awesome I beat Cynthia and everything and a mono flying run on Firered without Charizard (madness!)

    Good news people while I once again was busy chapter 2 of Journeymen is closer than ever to being rewritten since the proof read of chapter 1 has been completed. Expect the final amendments to go up along with the renewed chapter 2 'Cruisin' and Snoozin'!

    I have just posted the next chapter of Hero's Path, Hero Rising.
    For any newcomers, in the spring, I wrote a fic called League of Heroes. It is now completed, but it was about our league's struggle against Ghetsis and the evil Team Omega. Definitely check it out.
    Hero's Path is the sequel of sorts of League of Heroes, focusing on the exploits of my character, Cole, as he tries to escape from his fate, the shadow of the war hero the world expects him to be, the ghosts of his past, and in the end, himself.

    It's funny that you guys brought this up because I actually included the fact that the league is in disarry in Chapter 4 of Professor X. :P Anyways. I think we should start recruiting now, and I know that you don't like the idea DO, but maybe this time we should put something in the League section of this site.

    Funnily enough guys I AM putting it in the league section :P
    Now then for the fun part

    AUDITIONS to fill the remaining 5 leader positions in the Non-competitive Trainer's Hangout League have officially begun! And here's how it works! [ONLY GROUP MEMBERS MAY AUDITION!] By the way these places are subject to change and as a result there may be even less places for leaders (because I've sent out a PM seeing how many of the old ones want to rejoin it would be unfair to leave them out) so competition for the remaining few places will be fierce. If they don't reply within a week however then there should be more on offer.

    Basically all of you who want in have to post in this group and tell us why you think you should be a gym leader, elite four member or the champion for you ambitious lot! But it doesn't end there, we'll then shortlist the best of these lot and battle them too!

    So this is gonna be a long and arduous process and over the next few weeks we'll be rigorously analysing every single application. And boy have they got to be unique because we're looking for the best battlers in this place to show that non-comps have it going on! Tell us your warstories, your expertise, your claims to fame in the pokemon/forum world, anything you can that'll bolster your application because it's hard to convey through writing alone. DO SAY WHAT TYPE YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE! 5 OF YOUR TYPE AND A WILDCARD. DRAGON, FIRE, FIGHTING, STEEL, ELECTRIC, WATER, ICE AND DARK ARE TAKEN.

    So far Dracoburn, Feralninja and Natural Trainer are confirmed as battle judges and we'll also be overseeing the written applications so get going people we expect some amazing battling talent! Apply carefully people i.e. don't apply for elite if you know you haven't quite reached that level of skill yet etc. etc.

    We'll leave this written bit open as long as we see fit and will let you know when it's closed. Basically we'll guide you through the whole process as best we can! Any questions ask any of the leaders of the group who are in the first post.
