    Hey, moderator status feels good! Almost like a dream! May is also the most badass month of the year. And...it's been a good time to get new Pokemon. Entralink Pokemon...So, this month features a collection of all Entralink abused Pokemon (by me), giving them away to people who would like some semi-rarities!

    But, as some of you know, you gotta play to win!

    [​IMG]
    Santa Chu's Rules:
    1. All entries must be posted here. Your response must include the following stipulation: a Munna sprite (to show you read the rules!-heck, look, here's one: [​IMG]).
    2. I will be distributing these Pokemon. Winners may vm/pm me to pick up the Pokemon if they see their name on the list.
    3. This is a 5th Generation giveaway, so B/W fc is needed.
    4. One Pokemon per person. You may choose which one (and mention it in your post). In that aspect, one entry per person (no editing your post!). Once a Pokemon is won, it cannot be claimed by another.
    5. ICBB/Blacklisted members may not participate.
    6. All Pokemon are non-redistributable.
    7. Breaking any of these rules disqualifies you from this giveaway. Don't forget. I am a moderator now. Fail to follow the rules, and I'll ban you!!!! :P

    Just messing, but please, do follow the rules.

    So, how about those prizes? Well, there are five separate tiers for a Pokemon. The higher the tier, the more difficult the requirement. So...onto the giveaway and the requirement to win.

    Hi RJ! [​IMG]

    I'd like to put in an entry for your Jolly DW Magikarp (Tier 5).


    In response to your question I'd have to say that over the years I've had a couple of songs from the games and the OSTs that I've liked. At the moment I'm rather starstruck by a Violet City/Olivine City remix that appears in FireRed/LeafGreen as the Six/Seven Island Theme. I feel it's an honest love-letter of a piece, and it (and the remix of Azalea Town/Blackthorn City for Four/Five Island) certainly brought a Johto-ish atmosphere to my experience of playing LeafGreen on a cart for the first time.


    Great Giveaway RJ!


    ^.^
    My White FC is
    0132 7419 6260


    Jedi Says: Eh...not bad. Not a fan of Johto, but it seems you enjoy it. Winner.

    I'm unsure whether u wanted to show where u were sent by the religiousjedi link or sent from...
    Obviously, the link would send you to your profile page:
    http://www.smogon.com/forums/member.php?u=65876

    You could be sent from any of your posts, such as the one on this page!
    Idk if this was meant to be a trick question, but technically, it does link to your page
    If you accept my answer, I shall take the poliwag. If not, I might try out the NBA logos at school tomorrow.

    Jedi Says: "Another place" does not suggest a trick question. So sorry.

    Hello RJ [​IMG]
    Firstly, sweet giveaway. Secondly I can't post a munna sprite because I'm posting from my DSi but at least the fact I know I was supposed to means I read the rules right? Anyway I'd like DroughtPix and I think you're looking for something like this in return...http://myworld.ebay.com/religiousjedi Hope that does the trick and congratz on your new status!
    edit: black fc 5372-2669-0930

    Tier 5: The DW Anorith looks nice!

    Pokemon Music- The VGC 2011 Tournament music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Smh3pKiC-hQ&list=PLD4C67A7F591074BF&index=4&feature=plpp_video (Same soundtrack as the competitions)

    Reason- I love the sound of the music, espically when you're about to face someone in a single elimination tournament (at regionals back in 2011) Great Music!

    EDIT- Aww, I wanted that DW Sharpedo, oh well

    Jedi Says: Oh...Subway Battle Theme! One of my favorites! Winner.

    As already stated, great giveaway!
    [​IMG]

    FC is 0519 0378 5394

    Tier 1 = a shadow, annoyingly I knew this before the thread opened and haven't been able to post this since it opened.
    Tier 2 = http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3465992 this is your trade thread
    Tier 4 = Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, Mario & Donkey Kong, Metroid Fusion, Warioware Inc - Mega Microgames, The Legend of Zelda
    Tier 6 = As I want the Carvanha, here's what I would do.
    Sharpedo w/ Speed Boost
    Item: Life Orb
    164 HP / 212 Atk / 52 Sp Atk / 80 Spe
    Protect / Waterfall / Crunch / Ice Beam

    Somewhat typical Speed Boost abuser with Protect, powerful STABS plus mild coverage for Grass and Ground counters. My original idea had no Special investment and in that case, I can't say what would go in the fourth spot, the analysis suggests EQ but Ice Fang could work, maybe Skull Bash?

    Jedi Says: Disqualified. Looks like you didn't read rules carefully.

    Hello! [​IMG]Great giveaway! For tier 2 I believe this is suitable?

    Jedi Says: I don't think I'm a Munna. Sorry.

    Wow... meant to link to this, but I should have checked the link again. Either way, good luck with the giveaway!

    Hey. Nice giveaway!
    Tier 6: (Exeggecute)

    Ability: Harvest
    Item: Sitrus Berry
    252 HP / 6 Def / 252 SDef
    Substitute
    Sleep Powder
    Double Team
    Leech Seed

    With this set, Exeggecute can become another uber wall like Chansey. However, Exeggecute will only be a Special Defensive wall. Sleep Powder is a general attack you always want to have on Exeggecute. It buys you more time for Harvest, allows you to Sub, and allows you to Double team. Substitute is there for extra protection. Double team will raise you evasiveness eventually making you unstop able. Finally, Leech Seed is there to heal your health but at the same time, give damage.
    I hope you like it!

    Jedi Says: I don't. It makes poor use of the nature this egg has. In addition, Double Team is a no-no. So sorry.

    I'll give it a shot. I'm going for DW Exeggcute in Tier 6.

    Exeggutor @ Chesto Berry
    Nature: Quiet [+SpA, - Spe]
    Ability: Harvest
    EV's: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpA
    - Trick Room
    - Giga Drain
    - Psyshock
    - Rest

    This should be run with a Speed IV of 0, of course. Exeggutor can theoretically stay alive the whole game and keep setting up Trick Room for itself or it's teammates as long as Harvest keeps activating. Being that this should only be run on a Trick Room team, the EV's have the maximum overall bulk and maximum special attacking power possible. The 4 Def is for switching Eggy into Fighting attacks(and is his better stat anyway). I guess you could run Sitrus Berry instead if you want the 4th move to be another coverage move, though I can only see Hidden Power being the last move honestly.

    I keep making TR sets for these giveaways. If I keep this up, I will have a whole Trick Room team by accident lol.

    Jedi Says: Not bad. This particular one has a Speed IV of 0 anyways. Winner.

    Tier 5(Cacnea):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGCxIf6Qnpk

    The entire game had awesome music as a whole, but this one especially stands out as my favorite. The fact that it was a final battle made it a lot more epic, and the crowd cheering in the background made it even more intense, knowing that the fate of the Orre region was in your hands, and was going to be decided by this one battle. This is just hands down my favorite tune in the whole game, though Pyrite Town and Mirror B.'s theme come really close.

    Great Giveaway, and my FC is 0475 7427 7064

    Jedi Says: Oh, I remember this theme. To be honest, I found it anti-climactic for such a match. But, I can't fault someone for liking something so much. Winner.

    I don't know if I can win a Pokemon someone already won, but if I can, then I'd like the Vulpix.

    Here's your sprite, [​IMG]


    And here's your link.

    Edit: Oh wow, missed that one rule. Great giveaway though, and grats to those who won. :p too bad

    I'd like to go for the koffing (since it's the only one left, lol).
    My favorite Pokemon song is "Mezase Pokemon Master" by Matsumoto Rika (the voice actor of Ash or Satoshi in Jap)
    A link to the whole song
    Matsumoto Rika performing ^_^
    I found out about the song while looking at forums during my final semester in college.
    I listened to the song during an all-nighter in our research laboratory while I was coding the program to present as my undergraduate thesis (so about 6 hours of continuous playing of the song until I switched to another song)
    I liked how upbeat the song is (compared to the English adaptation version, but I still liked that song) and how amazing Matsumoto Rika is! I like Japanese anime song so this is my favorite Pokemon song (The English Pokemon theme will always have a place in my heart).

    Jedi Says: Uh...you were listening to this while doing coding? Um...congratulations on passing? Winner.

    Cool thread! I wish I had noticed a bit earlier, the Exeggcute was the first thing to catch my eye. Here is my submission for Tier 6 Oddish

    Vileplume@Sitrus Berry
    Bold
    Effect Spore
    252 HP/68 Def/188 Speed

    Sleep Powder
    Stun Spore
    Giga Drain
    Protect

    I am primarily a VGC 2012 player, so that is what this set is designed for. If submissions were supposed to be Singles only, sorry but I did not see it in the rules. This set functions as somewhat of a Trick Room counter. It will hit 94 speed with the given EVs, enough to outrun most base 70's not focusing on speed. Thus, it might get some surprise Sleep Powders onto the likes of Metagross and Hitmontop. Amoonguss can only speed tie base 70's, when he is Timid 252 Speed EVs. It can outrun any Amoonguss, and most TR setters with a lowering nature and 0 IVs. Surprise factor is important, people might not expect him to be relatively fast. Partner to help with coverage, or a Tailwind setter work well. Stun Spore is more of a last resort, not a huge amount else could go in the spot. I admit the set is a tad gimmicky, but thanks for reading!

    Edit: FC is 1592-9161-5242. I understand no edits, but I figured it only applied to submission alterations. Sorry though, I seriously should have remembered!

    Jedi Says: Anything VGC works, so long as it makes sense. Winner.
