    Update: The HALOZ.com Mudkip has maxed out IVs (31 in all stats). For the sake of fair competition, I ask that you do not use it for PPL. If you battle me with one, I will withhold your badge.

    NOTE: This is a request from me, not the PPL.

    Understood. Not a problem. We were just curious.

    (We might wear Rocket outfits, but we battle fair.)

    You can pick them up at PAX.

    Those look nice. I wonder if she can make a hat of one of my fav pokemon: Cyndaquil. Sadly I doubt she could make a custom hat before PAX. Maybe I'll talk with her at the pubcrawl and see how much it would cost me. Could always have it for Anime Boston.

    Damn it. I guess I am gonna wear those BK pokeballs all weekend. Haha.

    I am talking more along the lines of something to really make us trainers stick out. I really think we should make like a bright color beanie or maybe even custom order scarves that say TRAINER on it.

    I have had my huge HGSS pokedex book out all day and have yet to browse through it for guys I want to use. I am sloking. (Get it? Instead of slacking? I am a genious!)

    That's not too Farfetch'd (<< you knew it was coming); it's kinda late to order the scarfs; but custom trainer belts would be a neat idea too. The BK pokeballs are shoved in my closet somewhere lol, may have to just paint/create some new ones.

    The BK ones are perfect. You just have to color a black outline where the red and white meet and for the circle in the middle.

    His biggest dilemma: use his starter, or go full Rocket, as he will be in Rocket gear (when not in his Captain Jack Harkness cosplay). oh, and his Rocket outfit has one special addition: a black tac vest with pokéwalkers on it (his own, and borrowing from a few friends who can't come to PAX East for one reason or other)

    HG/SS. They have the flat battle option which drops everything above 50 down to 50, which is the battle option everyone is going to be using.

    That's how I'm trying to look at it. It's pathetic but I've had it for over 4 years and it just felt so horrible to see it broken in two. It seems ok for now - I used some really good glue. After PAX is done I'll probably order a replacement case from Dealextreme and save up for a 3DS. I'll be bringing my wife's DS Phat in tow for PAX as a backup as well.

She, herself, has some amazing pieces of crafts/art, check them out for some good ideas, reminder there isn't much time left for PAX.

    I'm still having a nice time at Stark Mountain in Diamond.I've got only one left to train. I had a female Rampardos ready, but the EV training gave her a lunatic Attack and rubbish Speed and defenses - risky when her best attack has massive recoil. I'm going with another female Pokemon instead, Eliade, who's more balanced and also the only one with a nickname.

    I don't even remember where I am at in SS. I think I was kind of attempting to get Lugia, but I went and the rocks were still in the way. Yay for being lost!

    I think tonight I am going to pick a good 10-15 Pokes I might have on my team and go from there. I want to pick mainly ones that I like, but I guess I need some decent ones to be able to compete.
