Hey I'm interested in this dude in Gen 7, I've already some mons ready for battle that could interest you but since they come from a French game, you probably won't be interested. So instead, I prepared a GDoc with all my breedables if you're interested: Available breed - Google Sheets
Thanks in advance !

Greetings SpiritGuy, I'd be happy to trade you Claas Cougar in exchange for two Gen 8 breedables: your Beast Ball Spiritomb and, if possible, Safari Ball Sceptile (I saw you have a Dream Ball one, and wanted to ask you if you still had Sceptile saved in your Dynamax Adventures and could catch one in a Safari Ball as I would like to Masuda breed it later). Let me know what you think.

I've already several perfect spiritombs in my box so no problem for it. Concerning Sceptile, I don't know if it's saved since I don't know how to RNG on SWSH but I still can try to catch one in a Safari Ball during dynamax adventures.

Sounds good, I'm in no rush so I can wait for Sceptile; I just need the Safari Ball on it, so don't feel obliged to give it EMs/flawless IVs. You can either post here, PM or VM me whenever you're ready.

Depicted as a menacing eagle, Revali is a member of the skyward Rito tribe and he's a skilled pilot, and even though he's a Champion, he resents Link for being the hero of Hyrule. The Beast Ball was chosen to match both the blue color of shiny Braviary's back and wings and the color of the blue scarf that Revali wears.

Flare Blitz | Shadow Bone | Bonemerang | Protect

Hawaiian stories of going to the underworld after the soul of the dead and restoring it to the body are based on the Hawaiian philosophy of life, whose tendency is to dissociate the spirit or soul (uhane) from the body (kino) and to think of it with a quite independent life of its own apart from the body, which is dead or inert without it. The spirit (uhane) may wander away from the living body, leaving it asleep or merely listless and drowsy, and visit another in dream or as an apparition (hihi‘o) while the other is awake.

10/08/2021 UPDATE (8 new Pokémon)

The following updates will include a few Ribbon Masters I have recently completed from Colosseum, they have all the 85 available ribbons from Gen 3-8, but as Bright Diamond and Shining Pearl games will most likely have new ribbons, they will need to be updated as soon as Pokémon HOME compatibility is out for these games in early 2022. :psywoke:


{#244 - “Yajna” }

IVs: 31/31/31/11/31/31 - Adamant\Inner Focus (HA) - CHRIS\18923 - Orre (Colosseum)

Ribbons:







Info about Yajna

"Who is that is born again?
It is the moon that is born again.
And what is the great vessel?
The great vessel, doubtless, is this world.
Who was the smooth one?
The smooth one, doubtless, was the beauty (Sri, Lakhsmi)
What is the remedy for cold?
The remedy for cold, doubtless, is fire."

(Shatapatha Brahmana, 13.2.6.10-18)

Yajna is my fifth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3, featuring every possible ribbon from Gen 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8. Game Freak decided to make things a lot easier for Entei on Pokémon Sword & Shield: Flare Blitz, being a Gen 4 Event exclusive move on Entei up to Gen 7, became a Technical Record, while Extreme Speed, move limited to the same exact Gen 4 event, is now a simple Level-Up move! Entei's Hidden Ability, Inner Focus, blocking every kind of Attack drop (most notably from Intimidate), became the standard ability on every physical Entei. The Ability Patch, introduced in the Crown Tundra DLC, made the Hidden Ability available on every kind of Entei, meaning that Entei from Pokémon Colosseum can easily obtain its HA! With all these things considered, it was finally time to acquire myself a special Entei from this game and Ribbon Master it. The nickname Yajna, meaning "sacred fire", refers to the fire rituals and sacrifices practiced in devotion of Lord Vishnu (विष्णु) in Hinduism and connects well with Entei's shared move with Ho-Oh, Sacred Fire.

According to the Cherokee creation myth, at the beginning of the universe there was just water. All the animals lived above it and the sky was overcrowded. They were all curious about what was behind the water and one day, Dayuni'si, the water beetle, volunteered to explore it. He explored below the surface to the bottom and all he found was mud which he brought back to the surface. After collecting the mud, it began to grow in size and spread outwards until it became the Earth as we know it.

The player navigates Nibbler through an enclosed maze, consuming objects, and the length of the snake increases with each object consumed. The game was the first to include nine scoring digits, allowing players to surpass one billion points.

Ribbons:








Info about Damon

"Tyger! Tyger! Burning bright
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"

(William Blake, The Tyger)


Damon is my sixth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3, featuring every possible ribbon from Gen 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8. Much like Entei, Raikou has been quite buffed on Pokémon Sword & Shield. Even if it lost Hidden Power (Hidden Power Ice was somehow mandatory in the previous generations - in fact Damon has been RNG abused with the best Hidden Power Ice spread available on Pokémon Colosseum), Raikou can now learn Scald on Gen 8, which hits Ground-type Pokémon for super effective damage just like Hidden Power Ice did, and it's also able to learn Aura Sphere, without the downside of being locked to a Rash nature anymore! The only way to obtain a flawless Raikou from Gen 3 is getting it from Pokémon Colosseum, since due to the Roaming glitch on Pokémon Fire Red & Leaf Green the Johto beasts have a maximum of 0 IV in Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed; moreover, Raikou is also pretty tedious to RNG abuse as the Cipher Lab is a noisy area and your frames will quickly jump all over the place: this explains why Coloseum Raikou is a perfect candidate for a Ribbon Master! The nickname Damon is a reference to the mighty tiger ridden by the ten-armed goddess Durga (दुर्गा) into war in Hindu mythology, symbol of immense power, bravery and valor.

The nickname is a reference to Kurapika (クラピカ), the eponymous character from Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter x Hunter manga series. Kurapika has medium blond hair with brown eyes and is a very intelligent individual: he created Nen abilities that allowed him to defeat all members of the Phantom Troupe, a feat that is extremely impressive considering how powerful and diverse the members of the Troupe are. His strategies rarely fail and his analytical abilities are so great that some believe he can read minds.

In Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, Gerione is a monster characterized by a chimeric body composed of different animal parts like a snake's body, a scorpion tail and demonic wings. In the elaboration of this being some verses of the Apocalypse (9, 7-11) played a decisive role in which the apostle John describes locusts with the faces of men, hair of women, dandelions and tails similar to scorpions and figurative zoology of the Middle Ages. Named for the first time in the XVI canto of the Inferno, it is mainly present in the following one and is also mentioned in the XXVII canto of the Purgatory.

Ng Mui had been a student at the Henan Shaolin Monastery when it was destroyed. She fled to the White Crane Temple and there she met a young girl who was being forced into marriage by a bandit. Ng Mui taught the girl to defend herself by distilling Shaolin martial arts knowledge into a quick lesson. Her clever, adaptable style of self defense was a great equalizer as it took away the advantages of size, weight or gender.

The nickname is a reference to the Chol (חוֹל), the mythical animal mentioned in most passages of the Hebrew Bible, sometimes referred to as "phoenix". The Chol bird can be called by special kabbalistic chants and is said to not have been tempted by evil: when Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge following the serpent's advice, Eve fed the animals and the birds. Only the bird named Chol refused it because it was following Job's advice: "and in my nest, I shall perish, and like the sand, I shall have many days".

Jolly (minted) - Leaf Guard
31 | HT | HT | 27 | HT | HT
252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 SpD
Power Whip | Darkest Lariat | Close Combat | U-turn

The nickname is a reference to the name that the Gautama Buddha had when he was still a Bodhisattva, as a king of the monkeys. The monkey ruled by Mahākapi lived at a spot near the Ganges and ate of the fruit of a great mago tree. The king Brahmadatta of Benares desiring to possess the mangoes, surrounded the tree with his soldiers, in order to kill the animals, but the Bodhisattva Mahākapi formed a bridge over the stream self-sacrificing his own body and by this means enabled the whole tribe to escape into safety.

"Victorious king, I guard the herd, I am their lord and chief,
When they were filled with fear of thee and stricken sore with grief.
I leapt a hundred times the length of bow outstretched that lies,
When I had bound a bamboo-shoot firmly around my thighs:
I reached the tree like thunder-cloud sped by the tempest’s blast;
I lost my strength, but reached a bough: with hands I held it fast.
And as I hung extended there held fast by shoot and bough,
My monkeys passed across my back and are in safety now."

Info about Azzurra

"[...] E come il vento
odo stormir tra queste piante, io quello
infinito silenzio a questa voce
vo comparando: e mi sovvien l'eterno,
e le morte stagioni, e la presente
e viva, e il suon di lei. Così tra questa
immensità s'annega il pensier mio:
e il naufragar m'è dolce in questo mare."

(Giacomo Leopardi, L'infinito)


Azzurra is my seventh personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3, featuring every possible ribbon from Gen 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8. After getting myself a flawless shiny Entei and Raikou from Pokémon Colosseum, it was finally time to get my hands on the last Pokémon to complete the Crown Beast trio: a beautiful shiny Suicune in a Dive Ball! With the Substitute + Calm Mind set Azzurra can effectively abuse Pressure in a number of ways, especially for PP stalling. Maximum HP and Speed investment with a Timid nature gives Azzurra the most amount of overall bulk and makes her as fast as possible so that she can set up Substitutes more safely.
The nickname Azzurra is a feminine Italian name and it means "sky blue", the color associated with both the sea and the sky in Italian and with shiny Suicune's color palette. The name also means "pure"; "clear", and can link to the fact that Suicune has the power to walk across water and purify it with one touch, as it dashes through the North wind.

#103. “Ashvattha”
♂
OT: Christian | ID: 001337 | Alola (Sun)
Quiet - Frisk
31 | 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 0
252 HP / 252 SpA / 6 Def
Trick Room | Draco Meteor | Giga Drain | Flamethrower

The nickname is a reference to the Ashvattha (अश्वत्थ), a sacred and eternal world-tree in Hindu mythology. Ashvattha is used metaphorically to describe the mighty, many branched system of integrated consciousness, life force and afferent and efferent nerves, that is the composite of man: our existence. The roots above show our spiritual dimension, whereas the branches below depict our material bondages. Material existence is rooted in the spiritual. The Ashvattha tree is also a way of visualizing all the things that keep people bound to karma. It suggests the world of transitory beings, which are ever in the process of change -- nothing remaining the same from the present moment to the next. The Hindu Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara) is believed to dwell in this tree.

X-Scissor | Earthquake | Stone Edge | Knock Off

Wehemmesu is an ancient Egyptian name, meaning “rebirth, resurrection”. The name is closely linked to the beetle (or scarab) being one of Egypt’s crowning symbols of rebirth: Egyptians would remove the heart of the deceased and replace it with a small, stone amulet of a beetle as they associated this little creature with the act of resurrection and creation. The theme of the rebirth can also be implied in the fact that the scarabs continuously lay their eggs in the dung in an act of spontaneous self-creation.

Moonblast | Scald | Rest | Sleep Talk

The nickname is a reference to the eponymous character appearing in the story of Kópakonan (the Seal Woman), one of the best-known folktales in the Fær Øer Islands. Seals were believed to be former human beings who voluntarily sought death in the ocean. A young farmer wondering if this story was true, went and lay in wait on a local beach. He watched and saw the seals arriving in large numbers, swimming towards the shore. The young lad stared at a pretty seal girl named Kópakonan placing her skin close to the spot where he was hiding, and when the dance began, he sneaked up and stole it. The seal girl was very upset when she couldn’t find her skin. The farmer kept her with him for many years as his wife, and she bore him several children; but he always had to make sure that she didn’t have access to her skin. However, one day the man forgets his key at home, and comes back to his farm to find that his selkie wife has taken her skin and returned to the ocean. Later, when the farmer is out on a hunt, he kills Kópakonan's selkie husband and two selkie sons. Enraged, the selkie woman promises vengeance for her lost kin: deaths that occur on the island are thought to be due to the Kópakonan's curse.

31 | 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31
252 SpA / 252 Spe / 6 Def

The nickname is a reference to Reynard the fox, an anthropomorphic red fox and trickster appearing in a literary cycle of medieval allegorical Dutch, English, French, and German fables, arose in the area between Flanders and Germany in the 10th and 11th centuries, when clerks began to forge Latin beast epics out of popular tales. Reynard's adventures usually involve him deceiving other anthropomorphic animals for his own advantage or trying to avoid their retaliatory efforts. Though Reynard is sly, amoral, cowardly, and self-seeking, he is still a sympathetic hero, whose cunning is a necessity for survival. The marked satirical content of the stories is an allegory to the feudal system and the power of the corrupt Chatolic church in the Middle Ages.

Finished my Brilliant Diamond playthrough so it was finally time to update the thread again :) I decided to change the old sprites with the Pokémon HOME ones because of the BDSP new in-game sprites + the new returning Pokémon had obsolete 3DS sprites, so it was time for a redesign.



#038. “Guinevere”

31 | 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31

The nickname is a reference to Guinevere ("white enchantress"), the legendary queen and wife of King Arthur. First recorded in literature by the early 12th century, nearly 700 years after the purported times of Arthur, Guinevere has been portrayed as everything from a villainous and opportunistic traitor to a fatally flawed but noble and virtuous lady. A notably recurring theme in many Arthurian tales is that of her abduction.

Will-O-Wisp | Foul Play | Quash | Encore

The nickname is a reference to Lilith (לִילִית), a demonic figure in Judaism mythology, supposedly the primordial she-demon and spirit of darkness. She is thought to have been the cause of disease, illness, and death: Lilith flies around searching for newborn children either to kidnap or strangle them; she also sleeps with men to seduce them into propagating demon sons. "Wildcats shall meet with hyenas, goat-demons shall call to each other; there too Lilith shall repose, and find a place to rest". (Isaiah 34,14).

Timid - Magnet Pull
31 | 0 | 31 | 30 | 31 | 30

Volt Switch | Thunderbolt | Flash Cannon | Toxic

The nickname is a reference to the the Surveyor 1, the first lunar soft-lander (spacecraft) in the uncrewed Surveyor program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). This lunar soft-lander gathered data about the lunar surface that would be needed for the crewed Apollo Moon landings that began in 1969. Surveyor 1 was launched May 30, 1966 and sent directly into a trajectory to the Moon without any parking orbit, landing on the lunar surface on June 2, 1966, on the Oceanus Procellarum. The Moon Ball was chosen because it matches both Shiny Magnezone's color palette and the idea behind the nickname.

#724. "吕布"
♂
OT: 恺睿 | ID: 839280 | Galar (Shield)

31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31
252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 Def
Leaf Blade | Poltergeist | Shadow Sneak | U-turn

The nickname is a reference to 吕布 (pinyin: Lǚ Bù), a Chinese warlord and military general during the Eastern Han dynasty of Imperial China. The official record of the Three Kingdoms ( 三国志), and more specifically the Lü Bu's biographies (吕布传), depict 吕布 as a massive man, mastery of archery and horsemanship and possessing immense strength. With his exceptional archery stunts, 吕布 helped to advert a battle between Liu Bei 刘备 and Yuan Shu's 袁术 general Ji Ling 纪灵, two main forces at that time, being nicknamed "Flying General" (飞将) for his martial prowess. The Lure Ball was chosen because it not only matches shiny Decidueye's color palette, but can also reference to the fact that 吕布 used his tactical skills to lure enemies into fatal traps and then killing them with accurate bow shots.
"Feng Xian (Lǚ Bù's courtesy name) has mastered the superb archery skills and obtained the precious bow in his hands, training diligently in the forest [...]".

Adamant - Shields Down
31 | 31 | 31 | 0 | 31 | 31
12 HP / 244 Atk / 252 Spe
Substitute | Shell Smash | Earthquake | Acrobatics

The nickname is a reference to the Aguas Zarcas meteorite, a carbonaceous (CM2) meteorite that fell in Costa Rica April 23, 2019. The asteroid that spawned the Aguas Zarcas was a soft remnant of the early solar system, made from the dust from the spinning nebula that would ultimately form our solar system, formed in even older stars: the meteorite that rained down from the event belongs to a rare class called carbonaceous chondrites, which forms in the wee hours of the solar system's emergence and is typically packed with carbon. This little cosmic rock shimmers with the colors of the rainbow and scientists believe that it contains the building blocks of life, that is the essential amino acids and proteins. Shiny Minior's color palette, spotted with little pieces of rainbow-colored fragments, reflects the pattern of the Aguas Zarcas meteorite.

Swords Dance | Spore | Bullet Seed | Mach Punch

The nickname is a reference to the famous Kusabira (くさびら, "mushroom") play in the Japanese Kyōgen theater. In the play, a man named Tokoro feels uneasy when some huge Kusabira sprout up in his house. He asks a Buddhist monk to pray for the Kusabira to vanish but his prayers cause the Kusabira to increase more and more, ruining his house. The prayers have the opposite effect because the mushrooms symbolize the ladies who have been disgraced by the phony Buddhist monk.

31 | 31 | 31 | 1 | 31 | 31

The nickname is a reference to the Yetnasteen standing stone, located in the north of Rousay, in the Ourkney Islands. The Yetnasteen, which takes its name from the Old Norse Jotunna-steinn, literally meaning "Giant Stone", was believed to be a giant, turned to stone by the warm rays of the morning sun. In Rousay, this petrified giant has one annual release from his eternal prison: immediately after midnight each New Year's Day, the Yetnasteen is said to come to life and walk the 300 yards to the Loch o' Skockness, where it drinks from the water before returning once more to its lonely vigil.

The nickname is a reference to Konrad Zuse (1910 – 1995), a German pioneer computer scientist, inventor and businessman. His greatest achievement was the world's first programmable computer; the functional program-controlled Turing-complete Z3 became operational in May 1941. Thanks to this machine and its predecessors, Zuse has often been regarded as the inventor of the modern computer.

31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31

Flare Blitz | Rock Slide | U-turn | Trick

The chosen nickname is an homage to Towan, the 48-year-old orangutan - one of the oldest in the world - from Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo that died in March 2016. Towan and his sister, Chinta, were the first twin orangutans born in a zoo. Growing up, Towan learned to manipulate objects and paint and showed great interest in people. Actress Karin Konoval began visiting the zoo and was immediately drawn to Towan: his intelligence, love for art and for manipulating objects were closely observed by Konoval, who took inspiration from him in portraying Maurice, the orangutan featured in the Planet of the Apes film series, played by the Konoval herself.

The nickname is reference to Alba, the world's only living albino orangutan known to man. Alba was rescued by the BOS Foundation in 2017 when they received a tip about an orangutan being kept in a cage as a pet at a village in Borneo, hard of seeing and hearing. After spending 20 months at a rehabilitation center, Alba was reintroduced to the wild in Borneo in late 2018 and was spotted many times after her release. Alba was seen capable of extensive exploration, skillful foraging, and deft nest building and she is still thriving in her natural habitat today.

Honu is depicted in ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs, artwork and mythology and represents the eternal link between man, land and sea.

Impish - Dry Skin
31 | 31 | 31 | 0 | 31 | 31
248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Spore | Synthesis | Knock Off | Leech Life

The nickname is a reference to the Teonanacatl, the narcotic mushroom of the Aztecs. In his "Historia de las cosas de Nueva España", Sahagun recorded the earliest description of Teonanacatl and discussed its narcotic and medicinal uses among the Mexican Indians of the period of the Spanish conquest: "[...] they (the Chichimecas) possessed a great knowledge of plants and roots, and they were acquainted with properties and virtues of them; [...] the Teonanacatl is a harmful mushroom which intoxicates in the same way as wine...[...] When eaten, it has a bad taste, hurting the throat and causing intoxication. Those who eat it see visions and feels a faintness of the heart. And they provoke to lust those who eat a number or even a few, of them".

Swords Dance | U-turn | Leech Life | Acrobatics

The nickname is a reference to Ishikawa Goemon (石川 五右衛門, 1558-1594), a famous Japanese semi-legendary ninja, folk-hero and thief. Goemon began training in the secret ninja art of ninjutsu under a master named Momochi Sandayu, the man who would begin the ninjutsu school in the Iga province. As ninja thieves, Goemon and his bandits would scatter a lot of their loot among civilians so as to throw the authorities off their scent, or to cause confusion in order to vindicate themselves of thievery. This is a very important part of Ishikawa Goemon’s legend, as it challenges the idea that he was a charitable Robin Hood type hero, giving riches to the poor.

Urvashi (उर्वशी) was a famous Apsara ("celestial nymph") at Indra's court and was considered the most beautiful of all Apsaras. An Apsara is a type of supernatural female spirit of the clouds in Hindu and Buddhist culture, compared to the muses of ancient Greece, figuring prominently in the sculpture, dance, literature and painting of many South Asian cultures.

Jolly - Guts (HA)

252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 Def
Wild Charge | Facade | Crunch | Superpower

Gur Aryeh (גור אריה "young lion") refers to the Lion of Judah, the Jewish national and cultural symbol that represents the Israelite tribe of Judah throughout the Old Testament of the Hebrew Bible. The association between Judah and the lion can first be found in the blessing given by Jacob to his son Judah in the Book of Genesis: "You and your brothers will acknowledge Judah will be the source of Jewish leadership and royalty of the Davidic dynasty and Messiah." In this blessing, Judah is considered a lion cub who will majestically reign over the whole kingdom when he grows up: "the cub of a lion is Judah; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. [...] The scepter shall not depart from Judah, and to Him shall be the obedience of the peoples."

Timid - Levitate
31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31
252 SpA / 252 Spe / 6 Def
Draco Meteor | Dark Pulse | Fire Blast | U-turn

The nickname is a reference to the green dragon of Belverde, that, according to tales, settled in the outskirts of the city of Rimini and would have had fun terrorizing the population. Belverde is described as a real scourge, so voracious of men as to make it impossible to pass through the forest. This legend goes back roughly to 1300 A.D. and it would seem that the population managed to defeat it only thanks to the intervention of the Virgin Mary and the help of the Italian condottiero Malatesta III. From this point onwards, its bones are kept as trophy in the basement of the basilica closest to the place of its killing. "Hic sunt dracones".

Jolly - Disguise
31 | 31 | 31 | 0 | 31 | 31
252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 SpD
Swords Dance | Shadow Claw | Shadow Sneak | Play Rough

The nickname is a reference to the dead woman portrayed in Maruyama Ōkyo (円山応挙)'s painting "Ghost of Oyuki" (お雪の幻), a work that singularly defined the image of yūrei (幽霊) – the Japanese ghost – and created an enduring Japanese cultural legacy. The ghost-girl Oyuki was Ōkyo’s mistress and lover who worked in the Tominaga Geisha house and died young. Nothing more is known about her. What we do know is that Ōkyo wanted to remember her in a poignant portrait which came from intense sadness and longing. Light colours on a creamy silk depict the white-faced, black-haired Oyuki in a bone-white burial kimono. Under her eyes, an expression that either reprimands or romances. The ghostly figure of Oyuki has become as much a part of Japan’s cultural iconography as the black ninja. And just as elusive.

Hmmm....... (Thinking)......

(Reading your rules first)

Hey Christian, Good to see you again! Your thread looks nice. :)

May I ask if you could cmt for that Jolly Zarude, please?

I haven't been active for a long time and I have been occupied with my job so I probably might not have anything to trade for something like that pokemon (Because it looks to me that you might have every pokemon that I have to offer on my thread)

If you don't see anything on my thread that you want in return and if you choose to decline my request, that's fine. I'll respect your decision. ;)
