Pokemon Contests

silentishtar  asked:

In celebration of magikarp jump, what's some good info on magikarp competitions?

I haven’t had a chance to check out Magikarp competitions personally. However, I do know a female Magikarp named Kiki shocked most of Hoenn by winning all categories of Master Rank Pokémon Contests in 2007. Pokémon centers reported a surge in Magikarp ownership in the following years.

It’s contestshipping week and this year I want to participate! Day 1 was ‘Firsts’, so I wanted to do like, a firsts for a couples Pokemon Contest when they were dating officially and stuff. Something they could do together as wonderful coordinators. (I chose those two pokemon bc they’re all I could draw ;;;;;; )

This is a day late. I’m a day behind. So busy but I’ll hopefully get each day done by Friday night.

Please full view Tumblr makes it look so bad.

My Aggron is a very arrogant boy and needless to say, he can be quite the narcissist. He's confident that he's the star of my team, but he knows how to share the stage with his fellow teammates. We've been thinking about entering in a coolness contest pretty soon. Any tips about contests before we make our final decision?

1. Be aware that a good battle moveset does not necessarily make a good contest moveset.

2. Make sure your guy is confident in front of a crowd. Some Pokémon get really intimidated by an audience.

3. Good socialization skills are key. A Pokémon that snaps at the competition earns no points with judges.

4. Be okay with losing. I don’t mean to sound (write?) discouraging, but the likelihood of winning your first contest is pretty low. Make sure you and your guys are willing to try again if a contest does not end the way you hoped.

with these things i’ll never say by missmichellebelle, Gen, 1.8k
Yuuri has been Victor’s PA for well over a year now, but no matter how many times Victor has told him otherwise, he still leaves actual handwritten notes for Victor to find.

Yuuri is finding that it is becoming easier for him to be open about his desires with Victor. When he reveals that there’s a part of himself that he wants to explore, Victor offers a solution.

Never Look Away by gabapple, mamodewberry, Mature, 152k (WIP)
Everything Viktor knows and loves is tangled up in the world of competitive skating- a world that, for him, is quickly coming to an end. Standing at the precipice of the inevitable, he must decide how his tale unfolds: should he retire into quiet obscurity? Allow himself to be eaten alive by the younger, more vicious competition? …Or risk it all on a struggling, but passionate, skater halfway across the world, who may prove to be the inspiration, life, and love that Viktor’s been missing all this time?

against the dying of the light by the__magpie, Teen, 2.4k (WIP)
The facts were these: Yuuri Katsuki - twenty-four years, seventeen days, twenty-one hours, and three minutes old; pie maker by day and dead-waking private investigator also by day - has just brought Victor Nikiforov - Grand Prix Final winner; childhood best friend; first kiss - back to life, mostly on accident. Though they can never touch, or Victor will go back to being dead, they can team up to solve the mystery of Victor’s murder and, along the way, learn how to make this unexpected relationship work.

Viktor Nikiforov’s last, literal dying wish is to get a gold medal. Yuri and Otabek figured it would be an easy goal to accomplish, until they figure out that Nikiforov was an Olympic figure skating champion with already a truck ton of other golden medals.

Broken Vases by Aliferous_Sin, Explicit, 22k
Devastated after a performance, Viktor Nikiforov seeks isolation in a darkened closet to bear his loss alone again but discovers that something more than mops are witness to his pain. Will truth find victory in the dark or is pure honesty too much weight for love to thrive under?

Never Too Late by Soprano, Gen, 15k (WIP)
Victor Nikiforov was not allowed to pursue skating as a child. In the end he still became a star, even if not quite the kind he had wanted to be. His dream, however, never truly died, and going into his 30s, he decided to enter the world of adult figure skating, with the help of his new coach, Katsuki Yuuri.

For years, Victor and his crew of pirates have been the bane of the coast, unmatched and elusive. With little left to satisfy him, he visits the small seaside town of Hasetsu, drawn by its simple charms. Yuuri lives a quiet life sewing and tailoring dresses with the unattainable dream of designing gowns of his own. Victor sees him working through the window of the dress shop, and decides to stay.

When Viktor, famous Youtuber and gaming prodigy, gets beaten in a simple straightforward game of chess by someone who calls himself “Eros”, Viktor decides to find him to prove he’s better - and hopefully meet up with him in real life, because hey. Someone who can beat the person with the highest IQ in the world - so far - has to be hot, right?

After losing in the first round of the Pokemon League and finding out his first pokemon from his childhood has died, Katsuki Yuuri announces his retirement from professional battling and retires to his family onsen/pokemon day care. What he doesn’t expect is for five-time Pokemon Contest ribbon winner, Victor Nikiforov, to show up and insist on becoming his coach in the world of contests in exchange for learning how to battle.

I Need A Hero by malchikelf, MrMich, Teen, 17k
When Yuuri was a kid, all he ever wanted was to be a hero; but his Quirk wasn’t good enough for hero work, and even though he had friends and family encouraging him, he still gave up on his dream. Until one day, when the Iron Prince, the world’s number one pro hero, sees Yuuri save someone’s life and immediately drags him into the world of heroes - and unfortunately for Yuuri, Victor doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer.

Enter the most beautiful, suave person in the world, who Yuuri hires to pose as his boyfriend for the wedding.

Open wounds, closed heart by nekoclair, Teen, 5.8k (WIP)
Sometimes it hurts. It’s not a physical pain, but the marks that they leave are real, too real, and it express itself in the most diverse forms. The heavy breathing, the sleepless nights, the bad habit of thinking too much about matters that should be trivial, and so many other symptoms chase after the young writer who, no longer enduring his own routine, decides to accept any help. Yuri Katsuki opens his arms and welcomes the opportunity to change, and to learn how to live with his worst and most insistent companion: his anxiety.

Love In Times Of War And Peace by thegrimshapeofyoursmile, Teen, 5.7k (WIP)
It is the year 1904. In an attempt of de-escalating matters with Imperial Russia, translator Yuuri Katsuki accompanies his father to St. Petersburg in a diplomatic mission. However, he certainly did not expect to meet a man as stunning and peculiar as tsarevich Yuri Georgieviech’s bodyguard, Polkovnik Viktor Ivanovich Nikiforov - and even less he expected to fall in love when war is threatening the country.

Anything for nidorina?

-A Nidorina named CeeCee is the protagonist in a popular children’s show. She wears red ribbons on her ears, plays the guitar, and goes on Ducktales/Indiana Jones-esque adventures.

-Nidorina adore toy treat cones. Peanut butter or cream cheese tend to be the best received treats.

-Some police forces report mild success with using Nidorina as detection/sniffer Pokémon, although Growlithe and Herdier remain more popular.

-Nidorina (and Nidorino) can be trained to run through mazes. Trainers hold competitions. Pokémon are rewarded based on run-through speed and maze complexity.
