    What are the general battle standards around here? I, personally, like Flat Rules, Triple Battle. I'm not a big fan of Single Battles as much.

    Does the whole "Tiers" system come into play here? I know nothing about what pokemon is one what tier and what is broken or what sucks, but I imagine that, even on a non-competitive level, it would kind of suck if I wanted to play with some of my favorites that aren't necessarily an upper-tier and ran up against someone with, like, a team of Garchomp/Volcarona/Metagross/etc.

    Legendaries? Yes? Absolute no? One or two per team?

    Where do you get the pokemon you use for battling here? Are they just pokemon you've acquired from various game play-throughs? Do you breed them yourselves just for battling here? If so, how do you raise them for battling on here?

    Are there any particular fanfics that are integral to read to get a sense of the community?

    Sorry again; I just like the idea of battling casually, and I want to get a sense of the rules and how it all works.
    Tiers? Yes and no. A lot of gym leaders don't allow them or legendaries. I, on the other hand, have to be the weird one. Since my absolute favorite Pokemon is Blaziken, and he is now an uber, I must use it. To even the odds, I also allow the challenger to use an uber or two.

    We get our Pokemon from all over. We trade, breed, catch, and all of the other ways. I typically just find my favorites and add them to a team. I have three different Blazikens. I have a Speed Boost one, which I obtained from a trade; a Shiny one that I also got from a trade, and one from my first game beaten (Emerald) that as survived to White.

    As Glover has said about the Fan Fics, Feralninja's League of Heroes is the basis for almost all of the other fics, with maybe the exception of the beginning of World Turns by Glover, as I'm not sure if he had joined when he started on it... And after reading of the 'Old Guard' in LoH, you can read my two!

    Incidentally, I hate that Blaziken. As much as people used to hate my Tauros. :P

    HELLO EVERYONE!

    After a sojourn in the woods, I've set up at college. I'm really glad to see that the group has been bustling along without me! I regret to inform people that as of this moment, I will do not have DS-accessable wifi in my dorm. I'll work on it, and it may change, but as it stands, the soonest I can battle/trade will be thanksgiving week. But I'll still be on here as much as possible!

    Same goes for my DS wifi. The IT helpdesk told me to go through them to set it up, but I'll be damned if I have the time to do that with all of this homework and all of these clubs! I'd try to think up a sufficiently overwhelmed emoticon, but I really should get back to that English essay.. and that Anthropology chapter.. and that online Psychology quiz.. and that English chapter.. Oh, and the GSA meeting that begins in about an hour. Crazy. Try to get over your procrastination habits prior to college life, younger members of our gang! I'm such a hypocrite.. I need to work on my hypocrisy problem, but not nearly as much as you need to work on yours. Please tell me someone got that joke because I've felt like an idiot spewing it around here and having no response.

    So yea. Back to English. Thank you for being my excuse to procrastinate. Like I said, hypocrisy blah, blah, blah..

    It has been a crazy week for me. Super busy. That being said, I still have a new chapterof Maelstrom for all of you to enjoy and review!

    Seems like we've all been busy. This week-end I plan on doing absolutely nothing productive!
    Speaking of anti-productive, has anyone gotten Keldeo yet? I plan on picking him up soon.

    Maybe tomorrow, since the town of the closest GameStop is also where my church is located. I just want to be lazy today. Maybe I'll force myself to write more... Maybe

    I won't be able to until I get home the eighth. I guess i should be more excited about getting him than I am.

    Blazi: yes. Write. Write lots. I reccomend doing it someplace outside if you have mobility. Sadly, I hit a bit of a wall wirh a small, fairly boring but important part of Janie getting out of the forest, hopefully three days on the train will fix that. Off tofind lunch now.

    Hmm. Tell ya what, I suppose I could just trademine to someone. I'll probably never use him competetively or otherwise, so i can live with an online hack duplication of him for collective purposes.

    I'm unlikely to get one, either. Still, online trading and whatnot.

    I have two different Japanese Keldeos (one is flawless, but it occurs to me I may have accidentally released that one recently when I was reorganizing my boxes for new trades; d'oh!), but I still went to Gamestop this past week to get the English one. Why not? And I have a Gamestop, like, 5 minutes from me.

    uh, oh, hai Glover. I thought you were still in the kitchen. I love you. Aren't I adorable? You aren't reaching for my ball now, are oh, you are.

    I have to go now...

    welcome! We aim to please. Be warned, we tend to gab. And write. A lot. Occasionally we personify or break out into spontaneous role play.

    In short, we're nuts. Crazy. Bonkers. Short a fe- gee, that's a lovely cane coming for my throat....HYURK!

    Welcome to the club just don't start any forest fires, or poach on Pokémon and your stay here will hopefully be long and prosperous.

    @Glover: I perfer the term mentally unstable... Trysten suddenly ducks out of reflex narrowly dodging a hooked cane. "No, he didn't..." Trysten mutters while walking off stage. CRASH!! AGHH!!
    "Try and yank me away with that cane again and I won't just shove up there next time!!"
