god besides the 50/50 pokeball thing pokemon sun and moon is a breeder’s wet dream lmao ive been breeding since i was a bab starting off just breeding eevee in sinnoh so i could get all the eeveelutions, then breeding for specific gender and nature in unova (using my trusty flame body volcarona), then using the masuda method in kalos trying to get a shiny (to no avail) and using the destiny knot and everstone to ensure i at least don’t get shit iv’s/nature. and despite improving over the years, i still kept giving up trying to get shinies and competitive-worthy babbies bc it was so damn frustrating but this “you never even have to move out of sight of the egg girl” thing?? nut. daycare being specifically for breeding with none of that levelling up, egg move deleting nonesense??? HOT SPRINGS WHERE YOU CAN INCUBATE 18 EGGS AT A TIME???? oh my lord. im gonna scream i hope in the next game they make breeding the exact same but put the pokeball thing back to normal

It’s been a while since I made one of these rant posts. 

However, this one has a lot more meaning to it, and I’m sure a lot of you will disagree with what I have to say. Hell, I know a few of you will be calling me a petty bitch or some shit like that, but I do not care. This is how I feel, and if you don’t like it, kindly show yourself out. 

First off, I have been a Giveaway Blogger since July 2014. Don’t believe me? Here’s the archive from the birth of my old blog at Ciphergiveaways, where I got my start at. Yeah. I’m an old GA Blogger. 

When I got my start, there wasn’t really many Giveaway bloggers around. From what I recall, there was at least 9, maybe 10 of us? I’m not sure, it’s been a while. Things were rather simple back then. You could give out anything back then and draw crowds. Whether it had a rare Egg Move, had 6 IVs, was Battle Ready, or Shiny, it didn’t matter. 

As the years passed, more and more Giveaway blogs started popping up. While the numbers had grown, the appreciation we got never changed. As usual, no matter what we gave out, everyone was super thankful and was as respectable as can be. I’m still friends with a good number of my followers I met during those times, such as @masterimpsyplays and a few more whose blog names I can’t quite remember at this time. All in all, no one complained about what we were giving out.  People appreciated us regardless of what we gave out, and Giveaways were super fun for us to do!

Last year, though, there was a noticeable change. It wasn’t really noticable before Sun and Moon’s releases. In order for some of us to get attention, we couldn’t just do what we used to do. It had to be more intricate and unique for us to get attention for our Giveaways, such as my Battle Ready Giveaways. Last year, I did one for a Blastoise and another Pokemon, and while the turnout was a little lower than usual, it was still a success, and many thanks were given.

Then, came the Great Giveaway Blogger Boom.

Out of the woodwork came many, MANY Giveaway blogs, which shot the numbers up into the 60′s. While this is a good thing, I feel that however, this is also a bad thing.

Here’s the part where the torches and pitchforks are gonna be summoned at my end, 

Because of the 60+ Giveaway blogs around, it’s making the ones who have been around for 9 months or more to find and give out Pokemon that haven’t already been done to death. Another thing is that the standards for Giveaway blogs have been set way too fucking high. For example, for a Veteran Blogger to even get someone to look their way nowadays, it has to by a Shiny, 6IV, Battle Ready Pokemon. Anything else being given out, and they are ignored. And god forbid that if you aren’t giving out 5+ Pokemon, then you’ll be ignored for that too, as 5+ Pokemon seems to be the set amount for Pokemon to be given out. And in the case of Legendaries, if it isn’t a completely flawless shiny, then you can just forget it. Veteran Bloggers have to resort to doing unique Gimmick Giveaways, such as @suicunegiveaways Forget Me Not Giveaways and my own Battle Point Giveaways to just get some kind of attention, and even THEN we may only trade out half a box of each Pokemon we give out. 

What’s even worse is that even if one was giving out a 100% legitimately obtained Shiny Pokemon, if it doesn’t have the proper IVs in the right places, right nature, or even the right moves, they get ignored as well. 

It has come to a point where some Veteran Bloggers are starting to dread doing Giveaways, as now they have to come up with gimmicks that no one else had done yet and hope to Arceus that the Pokemon they picked for said Giveaway hasn’t been done to death or isn’t being done by another GA Blogger. 

Our expectations have been set way too high, and some of us aren’t able to meet those standards at all due to life or other factors. As a result, I believe that due to these high expectations, it’s made a lot of people spoiled. If a GA isn’t meeting the expectations, we’re passed over for one that does. And do you know how that makes us who can’t meet those expectations feel?

It makes us feel like it’s not worth being a Giveaway Blogger anymore.

We do our best to get you guys great Pokemon, but to have low turnouts and hardly any nice thank you messages (which is completely optional, but we love getting these messages, as it makes our day), along with not even clearing out a single box of Pokemon, it does dishearten us greatly, as now we have too many leftovers and have to resort to banking them or Wondertrading them to get back some box space for another GA that will likely yield similar results. 

Another problem a lot of us face is people not reading the post or the FAQ when we do our Giveaways. Seriously, we have FAQs for a reason and if you have to ask about the Pokemon being given out, then you’ve clearly didn’t read the post and will be called out on it. It gets tiring after getting a lot of messages regarding to what’s being given out or people complaining about us not getting to them fast enough. We are going as fast as we can, people complaining about it to us won’t make us go any faster. 

Regarding myself personally, I do not gen any of my Pokemon that I give out, They are hand bred, EV trained, and leveled up before being turned Shiny by Powersaves and cloned to be given out, or in some cases lately, go and get the shiny through SOS or Masuda Method. I pour my heart and soul into what I give out, and to have barely any turnout? It’s depressing. 

Giveaways are meant to be fun for both the holder and participant, not for the GA Holder to be stressing out over whether or not the Pokemon we’re giving out is good enough to draw in a crowd. No Giveaway Blogger should EVER be dreading to do a Giveaway. 

Tl;dr, Some of us Giveaway bloggers are feeling very unappreciated and are getting stressed out over doing Giveaways to the point of dreading them. And some us like, like myself, are really considering retiring altogether, as it’s just not worth it anymore. 


15,054 EGGS to finally get this gem!
Longest hunt ever without quitting, this is the third attempt for shiny drampa and I wasn’t going to stop until he hatched~

On a side note I have a LOT of 5iv and 6iv NOT shiny baby drampas if anyone wants one, breedjects deserve a good home

I got this guy a couple weeks ago when I was trying to breed a 6IV beldum for the shiny swap method
It happened on the tenth egg
And it also happened to be adamant

It’s a blessing from RNGesus
And now I don’t have to do a shiny swap for shiny metagross at all; it’s done!

(Also, I like Metang the most in the Metagross line. So cute aaaaaaaaaa)

When people get pissed over receiving crap over Wonder Trade.


Yes, it’s not fun getting uncool-things over WT, but getting fucking shit-pissed off about it and ranting angrily about it doesn’t help. People on the internet try their hardest to make Wonder-Trade a better place, we all are in a way, and I think that’s beautiful. Ranting about it is as silly as buying a lottery ticket and complaining when you don’t win. 

Wonder-Trade is not about GETTING SOMETHING AWZUM. It’s about making someone else’s day. Of course I am bummed when I get another Luvdisc, but heck, they got a 5IV - HA - Growlithe, I’m sure they got happy (: 

Reaons why WT never will be fair:

  • 7 yearols and UP (and even younger) are playing Pokemon, do you think they care that you bred a 6IV Shiny and thew it on WT? Yes, you made their day, but they don’t care what they traded you, it was their win. 
  • Wonderlocke-challenges and other kinds of these.
  • PERSONAL OPINIONS ABOUT POKEMON (this includes me being happy whenever I get a Scatterbug while you would cry and pull your hair). 
  • People who simply just do not care. 

Wonder Trade will never be perfect, and if you can’t handle getting a Froakie, Eevee or a Charmander, I simply ask you to stop Wonder Trading, because getting fired up about it is not healthy and the amount of Froakies and Eevees might actually kill you. 

Have a nice day. 


I’m hatching shinies here, right? That’s what I do 80% of my pokemon playtime. That’s my thing.

Ok so
I’m breeding my shiny Miniors alright.
Switched up the nature just a few patches back when I realized Jolly may get burned and Stone Edge is not reliable, so I made it Naive so I can run Power Gem or something.
And I was worried I’d get the shiny while the IVs are still bad after using a crappy ditto, right?


Just now THIS guy pops up

Great, right? Great is what I said.


No, I’m not mad about getting a perfect shiny. I’m not mad that I possess the single rarest and most wanted thing in the pokemon universe, a single mon I believe NO ONE ELSE has gotten so far in legit ways. Hackers sure, that’s obvious, but this? This shit right here. This goddamn piece of– SEE? I’m mad. This spiky black ball of love, of gorgeousness, of perfection - this shiny mon right here is going to be my downfall. Is no one going to believe me? No. Is no one going to believe I got this one just days after ANOTHER 6iv shiny? No. No one is going to believe that. I know I wouldn’t. If a guy came to me in a con or something and said “yo this shiny right here is the second 6v I hatched in a row” I’d laugh at his face and throw his DS across the room into a wall - hackers don’t deserve to play. But now I could be that guy. I could be the player with 6v shiny in her team and another in the box. I mean no one is going to have any respect for me as an anti-hacker anymore. NO ONE. Not even myself I mean this has to be a mistake! Surely it’s gonna turn into a 3v or something overnight right? RIGHT??

I’m so done right now. So goddamn done.

Infinite High IV/Shiny Ditto Hunting Tutorial

I’ve seen this floating around on Youtube and Reddit but not yet on Tumblr.
It’s basically a super fancy SOS chain that can go on literally forever, gaining you infinite EXP (albeit 100 or so at a time, and some people even suggest turning off your EXP share to make the battles go a little faster), dittos with perfect IVs (great for competitive breeders), and maybe even a lovely shiny Ditto for the shiny hunters.

It takes a lot of setup and planning, but once you’ve got the chain going, nothing can stop it, and keeping it going is so incredibly mindless that it’s basically AFK.

What you’ll need:
- A Pokémon that knows Recycle and NOTHING ELSE (This is CRITICAL), preferably one that’s low-level. I got this by getting a wild Smeargle to Sketch the Recycle one of my Pokémon used, but it’s also possible to just get a Poké with Recycle and use the Move Deleter to remove the rest of their moves. This is your Recycler.

- A Pokémon that knows Switcheroo. Dhelmise is a good candidate for this, as it learns Switcheroo at level 1. Catch a Dhelmise and bring it to the Move Reminder and it’ll just be there. This is your Switcher.
Now, have your Switcher hold a Leppa berry.

- A Pokémon that knows the move False Swipe. This can also be your Switcheroo ‘mon, but mine isn’t. This is your False Swiper.

- A high-levelled Pokémon that meets two conditions:
1. Can 1hko a lvl 25-ish wild Ditto
2. Does NOT know any moves that damage its Ally (such as Discharge or Earthquake). I learned this the hard way.
This can also be your Switcheroo/False Swipe user, which would make things very efficient. Mine are not all the same Pokémon since I basically just used whatever I had on hand.
This Pokémon is your Sweeper.

- Adrenaline Orbs, which is what you always want when SOS chaining. They make it more likely for a wild Pokémon to call for help.

- You’ll also want a ton of Leppa Berries/Elixers/Ethers/PP-Restorers for your own Pokémon if you want your chain to last a while.

- Timer Balls might be a good idea for when it’s finally time to catch at 6IV/Shiny ditto.

- Some method of counting the number of Dittos you’ve encountered, if you want. This makes the chaining slightly less mindless, though.

What to do:

1. Put your Recycler in the first slot of your party.

2. Find a wild Ditto; they’re found in the patches of grass on Mount Hokulani. Have it Transform into your Recycler. The wild Ditto now only knows Recycle, a move which will allow it to re-use whatever berry it’s holding, even if said berry was already eaten.

3. Switch your Recycler into your Switcheroo-er. Use Switcheroo.

I’ll pause here to explain exactly what you’ve just done and why it’s an infinity setup.

Switcheroo swaps your item with the opponent’s, so what you’ve just done is given a Leppa berry to the Ditto which can only use a move that will let it get its Berry back.
Leppa Berries restore 10 PP to of one Pokémon’s moves.

You’ve now trapped a wild Ditto in a setup that will let it use Recycle infinitely. All this Ditto will do is use Recycle until it’s low on PP, then eat its Leppa berry to restore PP, then use Recycle to get its Leppa berry back, repeat. This can and hopefully will continue indefinitely.

You don’t have to worry about the Ditto using Struggle and knocking itself out and you don’t have to worry about taking any damage at all until Dittos with Imposter start showing up and maybe not getting 1hko’d immediately.

Moving past here it’s exactly the same as your normal SOS chain setup.

4. Switch your Switcheroo-er into your False Swiper (if necessary). False Swipe the wild Recycling Ditto. This will get it to 1hp exactly, or at least very low. Then, use an Adrenaline Orb. Now the Recycling Ditto will be calling for help almost every single turn.

5. If your Switcheroo/False Swiper isn’t your Sweeper, switch into your Sweeper now.
(Note: Bonus Points if any of the Pokémon you’ve used have the ability Intimidate, since Intimidate makes it even more likely for wild Pokémon to call for help!)

6. Wait for the Recycling Ditto to call for help. If it doesn’t, go to your bag and “use” another Adrenaline Orb, or “use” something like an Antidote/Paralyze Heal/Awakening on a Pokémon that isn’t Poisoned/Paralyzed/Asleep. This will use your turn, but it won’t use up your item!
Later in the chain, if the Recycling Ditto doesn’t call for help, that’s when I start restoring HP/PP to my Sweeper, if it needs it.

7. 1HKO the Ditto that was called as help. Be super careful to not accidentally hit your Recycling Ditto, so no moves that hit everyone on the field and no moves that hit both opponents at once. Don’t even have these moves on your Sweeper at all.**

8. Wait for Recycling Ditto to call for help again. 1HKO the help. Recycling Ditto will call for help. KO. Help. KO. Infinitely.

I don’t know exactly how many Dittos are needed before their IVs are perfect; all I’ve heard is a vague “30 to 40”, but I have gotten a 30+ chain this way and caught a Ditto with 4 perfect IVs, so it really does work and it’s actually pretty fun, if grindy, but it’s incredibly, INCREDIBLY useful to Shiny hunters and VGC competitors alike. Go out there and chain some Dittos; you won’t regret it.

Also, I just realized you could hypothetically get this same chain with wild Smeargles, if you want a shiny Smeargle…

**When I did my first chain, my Sweeper was a Magnezone who knew Discharge, which damages every Pokémon on the field, including your allies. When the chain was just starting to get good, a Ditto with Imposter appeared and immediately transformed into Magnezone. I didn’t get a 1HKO, wild Ditto used Discharge, knocked out my Recycling Ditto, and the chain was over.
Don’t make the same mistake I did. Keep Discharge and Earthquake out of your Sweeper’s moveset.

Pokemon Trade Scam

I was doing one of @xx-tiny-turtle-xx’s giveaways, and someone tried to trade with me. I offered a shiny lv.100 6IV Venusaur with a Life Orb and earlier I had offered a 6IV lv.100 shiny Sableye (thanks tinyturtle). Basically, great pokemon. The person offered a lv.100 shiny Arceus, and that’s what it said was being traded. But at the last minute, they switched to a Magikarp. I was able to see in the picture and “check partner’s” screen, but the name was still Arceus. Please keep a look out for these scammers!

This is Raichu. I first caught him in the safari zone in Emerald around this time in 2007. After immediately evolving him I fell in love with and he became the first ever Pokemon I leveled all the way up to 100. He’d mastered the cool contests in Hoenn and was the ruler of the Battle Frontier! Later that year he moved on to Sinnoh to top the contests and beat the battle tower’s butt! 3 years later he went to the Johto region and joined me every day in school on my Pokewalker. He was there through all of my highschool dramas and achievements! And then in 2011, he came over to the Unova region where he met all kinds of awesome new Pokemon! Where also learned that there has been a bit of a power creep and he’s not as strong as he used to be. But he sure as hell knew how to show off on stage in the Pokemon Musicals, rocking a top hat and cane!

And now, after a long 7 year journey, he’s moved over to the Kalos region ready to start adventuring with me again. He may not be 6IV, shiny, rare, nor have a useful moveset, but he’s been a better buddy to me than most humans I know.
