    Haha, welcome to our group. I think everyone's excited, especially if it comes out around August for Great Britian, then it'll probably be the same week for the states. Game Freak is pulling all of the unexpected announcements! What will they announce next?

    By the way, nice signature.
    I've gotten into IV Breeding. I'll breed any Pokemon that can, just ask and I'll see what I can do!

    YAY 800 REPLIES TO THIS THREAD.

    That is all.
    I don't use "uber" Pokemon (because they're banned), I don't calculate stat values (the simulator does it for me), I don't use cheating devices (because I hardly ever play the actual game), I don't breed my way to perfection (because I use a simulator), and I do care about natures. I battle the most efficient way, so I can use my strategic skills to the fullest. I don't look down on others because of the way they play Pokemon, which non-competitive people seem to actually do more often. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

    Chapter Five of Draco's Quest is up.

    Cool. I've checked in.

    EDIT: On an unrelated note, I decided to raise a DW Espeon based on one of my irl cats, Mia. She's in her early fifties and just OHKOd Marshal's Toxicroak before it could even blink. I think that's a good sign, don't you?

    That satisfying feeling when one of your chapters just falls into place. The end of TurnsCH15:Recoil is probably one of my best ones so far. I'd love to put it up now, I'm just that proud of it, but alas, I must wait for the proper time to post up CH14:No Witnesses, Pt1 first.

    And the astute reader will notice that CH15 is not No Witnesses, Pt2. There will be a Pt2, just not sequential.

    Random question: does anyone actually use eject button/red card? I could see it usefull on regenerator or zoroark sets, but outside of a gimmick, I don't really see the use.

    Truthfully, I'd never given it that much thought, outside of a "Huh. That's nice." I can see a Regenerator Revenger definately pulling it off if you've got someone who's actually worht squat with Regenerator, get in there, Kill, get out of the way.

    With Zoroark, You only really get one surprise anyway, then the opponent knows you have a Zoroark and the cover ID Pokemon as well. I prefer to set Zory up so that the opponent will switch in someone that Zoroark is strong against, and then trump 'em quickly that way, but even there you're hand is half tipped.

    Oh, yeah, I use 'em all the time on my gym team. Water, rock and ground types/moves are prevalent, so it's nice if Charizard can withstand a rockslide or Infernape a deluge. Since most fire types are glass cannons anyway, it may give you just the cushion you need to activate blaze and inflict some serious damage.

    I imagine it would also work with Retaliate, actually make that move rather useful.. Stick it on a tank or a revenge killer and you can revenge kill TWICE. Without wasting a turn on switching, I mean.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, here's Chapter 6 of Tempest, a day early so that I'm not on top of Hero's Path, release. Only three chapters left, and an epilogue to go before this little arc is done and I get back to World Turns full time. Maybe.

    Hey, I'd like to join. It sounds like there are loads that feel the way i do about CB. This is my story.

    Everytime I want to restart a pokemon game, I say to myself 'Get Pokemon u like! Enjoy this game! Don't worry about strategy.' Then theres a delay, and my mind starts racing. When I wanted to start Emerald, I wanted to get pokemon I didn't normally get. So, I thought, Treecko, Ninjask, Slaking, Slugma and Gyarados. I never normally have them. Then my stupid strategic mind kicked in. What about the wall, Skarmory? Or manetric? And Mudkip for a starter - it's better. I got halfway through the game. I got to catching skarmory. Then, I think, why not get one with the right nature? I caught about ten, and bred about 15. Then I thought, I'll EV train it, against Geodudes. Then, after raising one a few levels, I wanted one with roar, so I had to breed more. Then, I realised the movesets would be better if I got them in black and white, so I stopped playing.
    All this wasted time, born of peer pressure Pokemon competitiveness..

    Chapter 43 of Hero's Path, Empty Chairs, is now up, containing one of my favorite songs in the history of musical theater. If it doesn't bring a tear to your eye, I officially disassociate myself from you.

    I am also still quite here. I just haven't found an opportunity to respond. I'm going to be taking Glover's advice and (hopefully) post the finale to the second part of the Galactic Files early in the coming week.

    4. Feralninja, Fire: Cole, the Firebrand
    Okay, a few changes took place in the league this week, and this post is to alert you all about them. In the recent power shift, I have promoted Kaori'sLoveTysuya to a gym leader post. To fill his spot, :342: requested a downgrade to gym leader. Then, to fill the open elite four spot, I myself stepped up to the vacant elite spot, and Wartiger has entered as the grass gym leader.

    Now, to the best of my knowledge, Tysuya has not had any successful challengers, but if he has, I will let him deal with that on his own. As for me... I believe two people have claimed my badge. Now, in recent weeks my team has gone through a major restructuring, and I now have four members who are different. So.

    I really like the moltres emblem. I'm keeping it. SAnd since we only have four elites, those of you who bested me, if you get that far, you'll have to fight me again to claim it. But, if you already beat me the once, I would ask you use this badge:



    You still beat me as a gym leader. That victory still counts. You can use the Flare Badge as one of your eight to reach the Elite Four, but the Cornoa Emblem can only be obtained by fighting me as an elite.

    All right, that about does it for me. Have a nice week everyone, I have a huge irl commitment coming up. I probably wont' be on too much this week, but I'll check in. If you need to message me, I can probably find time to reply, and expect the weekly Hero's Path on friday, but outside of that... well, I'll catch you all later!
