A New Year, A New Game

So, I've downloaded Red Version from the Nintendo eShop, and I have been LOVING getting back to my grass roots (with fire... I chose Charmander). At the time of my posting this, I'm on the Bike Path on my way to Fuschia City. My current team including:
My girlfriend has been playing along with me with her downloaded Yellow Version. Feels so good to do this. I've even some plans for these pokemon and a couple others for later.

In Alpha Sapphire, I am within 10 pokemon from completing the National Pokedex. A light hiatus as I play Red, but still going back to AS to continue with that. I'll try to update when I have that completed.

Bulba Breeding

So since I have a Shiny Charizard and a Shiny Blastoise (both of which I have obtained from others in one fashion or another), I have decided to round out the trio and breed for myself a Shiny Venusaur. So far I have the IVs close to where I want, the Nature exactly what I want. The Ability is tricky, but I have a chance at it. Now all comes down to the parents.

Additionally, I have transferred to my Alpha Sapphire a crapload of my other Pokémon to help fill up my Living Dex, in the hopes of getting the Shiny Charm soon. I've left a few strong Pokémon behind in my X Version to help with seeking things out there, so we'll see how things go. If I can get the complete Pokédex in my Alpha Sapphire, I can transfer and transfer back certain ones to help get the Shiny Charm in X Version as well, thus helping both games get better chances at those elusive Shinies.

Huntail Complete!

So a while back I decided that if I am to complete the pokedexes, I might as well train up each pokemon that evolves into a competitive force. So while I was going through my pokemon, I realized that I hadn't had ANY of Clamperl's family. So I looked through the strategies on Smogon and found a few that could work. With the aid of my girlfriend, I managed to evolve my Clamperl I've been training into a useful utility pokemon. Here it is as it stands:

Pokémon: Huntail
Type(s): Water
Ability: Swift Swim
Nature: Timid
Item: White Herb
Move 1: Shell Smash
Move 2: Baton Pass
Move 3: Scald
Move 4: Substitute
EVs: HP 252, SpA 4, Spe 252


Not bad, and I'm sure I can make some good use of it.
