The Shard Shop is under new management. This is how things work:
1) Hand in your shard (you must include a link to where you got it) and you shall receive a riddle.
2) The answer to the riddle will be a basic Pokemon which you will be required to find by either capturing it or trading for it or hatching it (NO ADOPTING IT).
3) Turn it into me by providing a link to where you obtained it along with it's level and gender in the post and any TM, HM, Egg, or Move Tutor moves it may posses.
4) If the Pokemon is the right answer to the riddle, you will then get your stone and the Pokemon will go to the Adoption Centre. The Pokemon is up for grabs there, so, if you want it, I suggest requesting the Pokemon before turning it in, and making sure no one else has already requested it.
5) I do not put Pokemon up for Adoption if they are not the answer to the riddle. Therefore, if your Pokemon is the wrong answer, you get to do whatever you want with it (Keep it, Trade it, etc.)
6) NO SIGNATURES. This is already an FB Shops Rule, so I shouldn't even have to remind all of you. If I find this rule is disobeyed (meaning you post a signature) then your post will be ignored until you remove the sig.
7) You do not get the Stone until I approve it. So after you post with the link to the Pokemon, do not trade it, give it up, use it, or whatever. If I catch you doing this then I'll strip you (or anyone you gave it to) of the stone and I won't give it back.
8) If you can't figure out the answer, just keep trying. None of my riddles should be hard enough that you'd need to search for a long time to figure it out. If you PM me, I'll try to help you out as much as I can, but I can't just give out the answers, especially to ones that are fairly specific. If you absolutely cannot figure it out, ask me and I may change it, as sometimes I am a little vague in my riddles. As a hint, I generally use Pokedex entries for riddles.
9) You can withdraw your riddle if you want to trade it, give it away, etc. Just simply post saying that you are removing your shard and state the reason.
If you can't understand any of these rules, please feel free to PM me.

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.
For water I dig beneath the sand
I am master of travel under the land
To protect myself I form a sphere
Which I do when danger is near.
When in danger, I attack with a poisonous sting
Give me a stone of moon, and I'll become a king.
In order to make my body
Iron ore I must eat
With my steel-hard tackle
There’s nothing I can’t beat.
A small shiny ball, on my head it is kept
I'm small and I'm cute, with a spring in my step
I like tasting honey, that sweet, sticky goo
We're of the same species, but my name isn't Pooh.
Wiggly and yellow, I don't seem of much use
But inside my shell, I make cool berry juice.
Friendly and loyal, a cops favourite pup,
There's a fire in my soul, and I never give up.
With big sharp fangs I am often found
Hiding in darkness as I rely on sound,
To lead me through my darkened days
Screeching out strong supersonic waves.
I'll bite you and chase you till you are dead,
But if you strike back I'll run away instead
So watch out for your ankles when I'm about,
With my nasty teeth and my hairy snout.
My large bulbous head sits right up on top
Of a skinny lithe body that just doesn't stop,
Moving and swaying in the soft summer breeze
As I blend in amongst all the tall leafy trees.
I am oh so filthy, grubby as can be
Pollution is my nourishment, I'll even drink your pee!
I smell just like a sewer for I tend to live in drains
My putrid state is so repulsive you'll faint dead away!
When my large green eyes begin to light
I release a melodious tune
If you decide to fall asleep
I’ll draw on your faces out of spite.
To blend in I change the color of my skin
However, my stripe stays the color that it’s in
When in this state, by my enemies I can slip
Then I can lash out with my tounge as a whip.
My mantis body moves faster
Than the eye can see
Even my evolution
Is slower than me.
My milk is packed with nutrients
Which makes one strong and well
Therefore, it’s sought out and treasured
So you’ll be rich if my milk you can sell.
I snooze at day and feast on bugs by night
My radar-like eyes give me sight
If you want to attract me, make a shining light
Because I come running at whatever is bright.
I’m normally found near a power plant
If I absorb the electricity I’ll make a blackout
But if I have too much I’ll go on a rant
Then, if you get near me, I’ll shock you, no doubt.
My body is rock-solid, hard and made of a black stone
I can move quite fast, despite the size I’ve grown
With the magnet in my brain, my direction I can hone
If you want to catch me, look in the Volcano Zone.
I have a star-shaped body and a ruby core
From the tips of my legs, water will pour
Do not worry if my legs become less than five
My regenerative powers were keep me alive.
Resembling a hat I live in the snow
Amongst spears of ice is where I like to go,
Warm weather will surely cause me to melt
Yet my visits are said to bring prosperous wealth.
I am beautiful and graceful, a true Water Queen
A more elegant Pokémon you have never seen,
My fins billow and flutter like an elegant dress
Do not coop me up for it's freedom I love best.
Having two heads may seem like it’s tough
But actually it turns out to be useful enough
One can stay awake while the other takes a nap
So if enemies are near we can get away in a snap.
I am always soaring above the land
If you disturb me, you’ll get a faceful of sand
If you’re not one of my forest friends
I’ll blow you away with my Whirlwind.
a) Remove your sig
b) I need a link to where you obtained Meowth. While I actually added the rule, it's just common sense, because there is no way I'm gonna track down where you got it.
c) Don't just run in and take a Fire Stone, I need to approve it first. So if you've arranged a trade or something, you'll have to stop it now.
d) I really didn't understand your post. I mean, "handing over meowth fire stone" makes no sense. I try not to be to picky on grammar and spelling, but I need to know what you're saying.

Well, too bad. You're not going to get your firestone until I approve the transaction, and I won't approve it until you remove your signature from your first post. If you don't like this, tough. You're not going to get the stone anywhere else.
I caught two Diglett, one Lv. 5 Female, and once Lv. 7 Male. I am keeping the male, and trading in the female. (Is it the wrong link? I caught two in the VM.)
Opps, here is the link of the Lv. 5 female diglett. Sorry about that Eon. http://www.upnetwork.net/vb/showthre...&page=77&pp=15
