Gender: 100% Male ♂
Country: My heart is in Hoenn, but I am currently in Kanto. I engulfed four gym leaders and stole the badges!
Favorite Pokémon: Blaziken, Staraptor, Gardevoir, Brand new Nidoking
Friend Codes: My nature is lonely, I have no friends :(
About me: I'm Blaziken @ Random Held item (whichever is easier to throw)
Nature : Lonely
Trait : Guardless Double Intimidate [No Guard + Reducing the opponents' Atk and SpA by 1 stage only if they have a super effective move, otherwise I would only reduce Atk (poor guy)]
EVs : I dunno
Moves : Random - whichever I like (from scratch to explosion!)

I recently caught a Staraptor and it has become a nice pet for me!

Staraptor @ Shell Bell
Ability: Reckless
Nature: Adamant
EVs and IVs: WHO KNOWS!
I taught him Double Edge, Brave Bird, Close Combat and Roost

I also caught my personal (body)guard!

Gardevoir @ Choice Scarf
Nature: Timid
Ability: Trace
EVs and IVs: WHO KNOWS!
I taught him Psychic, Dazzling Gleam, Shadow Ball and Thunderbolt

Coming to the point,
I'm so simple, ntg much. Gonna play gen 4 games now.

I don't know why there is a craze for getting a shiny, as there is no difference in stats for a normal and a shiny. Also, normal is also still good, and getting a shiny is very tough. Craze for getting a legendary... that I understand.

Can anyone make me understand why there is a craze for shiny?
I'm sorry if I hurt you.

Primal says: It looks cool, it has cool sparkles in its body...

ah, I am one of those who don't look at appearances. Beginners make mistakes lol.

Gekky says : Its exactly because shinies are hard to get that makes them special. Everyone gets a legendary by the end of the game or by knowing a code, but with shinies we have to work hard or be very very lucky...

 A true point.

Coco (Y) says : HOW HAVE I GOTTEN POKERUS TWICE AND HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED A SHINY OUTSIDE OF A WORMHOLE FRICK SHINIES!!!

lol it has more importance than Pokérus according to her! I got neither lol!

Barbara Bingbong says : People like shinies because they'd rather Smeargle could paint Red than Green...

Okay...

PZ says: Shiny Pokemon are rare. Not like the Pokemon that have a 1% chance to encounter. Rarer than that. People may have struggles when hunting, from Double Team spam to Pokemon that have a low encounter chance, when you get a shiny Pokemon, it will be worth the effort of hunting for the shiny....

Yeah I agree. It is so tough to get. If you get it, you would be extremely happy, like me getting a Shiny Hariyama!

Shadow says: I shiny hunt for the feeling of accomplishment when you finally get the rare shiny that took forever to get. In Diamond, I got my shiny Drifloon in about 3 days, but Dialga is still taking months to get.

Really how unpredictable shinies are!

Professor says: Shiny Pokemons, like everyone says, their extremely rare. When you finally see one, it makes you feel like you have insane luck. Shiny Pokemons in competitive battling is even rarer. You need the correct nature(using mints :P), the correct IVs(using Bottle Caps), take some time to EV train it and make sure it has the ability you want(with Ability Capsules and Ability Patches). It takes lots of work to prepare a shiny Pokemon to go in competitive battling. Kind of to show off, well, everyone should be impressed about shiny Pokemons and how long these players have been trying to get them. How much effort they spend.....

This one I feel is like a Speech by a real professor! Really inspires Young Minds like us!

Gladion (idk what to call her) says: Well, they're hard to get and getting one is usually a challenge. Hours of Shiny hunting and you get a Pichu that barely looks any different. But you feel a sense of happiness and accomplishment, as you didn't give up and now you have a Pokemon to represent your hard work.

True, it is a really sweet fruit of our Hardwork.

I need more people to answer!

RECENTLY I CAUGHT A SHINY HARIYAMA! MY FIRST SHINY!

Favorites by its type ranked accordingly:
Normal: My pet, Milank, Pidgeot
Fire      : Myself, Infernape, Typhlosion, Charizard
Water  : Floatzel, Milotic, Gyarados, Lapras, Ludicolo, Blastoise
Grass   : Sceptile, Roserade,  Ludicolo
Electric : Manectric, Raichu, Luxray, Ampharos
Ice         : Glalie (more than Frosslass), Weavile, Lapras, Walrein
Fighting:  Myself, Lucario, Infernape, Heracross,
Flying    : My pet, Crobat, Pidgeot, Skarmory, Charizard
Rock      : None
Steel      : Lucario, Bronzong, Skarmory, Dialga
Ground  : Nidoking, Flygon
Psychic  : Gardevoir, Bronzong
Dark      : Weavile
Ghost    : None
Dragon  : Dragonite, Salamence, Flygon, Dialga
Poison   : Nidoking, Roserade  
Bug        : Heracross, Scizor, Scyther, Pinsir

Worst Mistakes I have ever made :-
1. Fighting type moves are resisted by poison types, so Poison Jab is Super Effective to Machoke!
2. Tentacruel is Water/Poison. Water types get Super Effective Damage by Grass Moves. So I used Giga Drain on Tentacruel... Damn, my Ludicolo's HP oozed off bcoz of Liquid ooze (lol).
3. Ghost type moves are super effective against Fighting types as Fighting type moves were immune to Ghosts.

From now on it is epic! It is about my first competitive team I did recently.

4. Giving Hidden Power (Grass) to Gliscor (which is a SpA). Lol, nature is Adamant, Special Attack IVs are 0, EVs are 0, and still having HP Grass.
5. Giving Life Orb to Roserade thinking that it wouldn't do anything since it is a poison type. And I made a mistake of having only one attacking move!!
