ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ Welcome to the Pokémon Village \o/



Introduction


Hello everybody! I'm Christian and I'm an Italian Pokémon fan and collector. I was born in 1994 and my great passion for Pokémon started at age 7 (2001) and has never left me since. At the time I started to get hooked on the Pokémon TV series but soon entered the world of Pokémon video games when my parents gifted me my first Game Boy Advance with Pokémon Sapphire (2003). Pokémon Emerald was the first game that I voluntarily asked my parents to buy for me and from this point on I have always followed the franchise up to the present day. I still remember the unforgettable moments at the Pokémon Day organized in Italy in 2006 and the rush to grab the special 10 ANIV legendary Pokémon. When I joined this site in 2009, RNG abuse had not yet been cracked, and the earliest forms of trading were Pokémon bred from Dittos that weren't flawless. After RNG abuse was discovered by mingot, I RNG abused my first ever Pokémon (a flawless Eevee on Gen 4), and in 2009 I opened my very first trade thread where I traded the centerpieces of my collection. On July 18, 2009, I RNG abused one of the rarest and most difficult Pokémon to obtain at the time, a Shiny flawless Feebas at Mt. Coronet. I still keep that Pokémon in my collection nowadays, a Pokémon that is older than some kids playing the games these days, my "Oceania". After a small hiatus in 2013-2016, I came back to Smogon during late Gen 6 and opened "The Pokémon Village". I became a contributor to the forums and to the Smogon Facebook Giveaways shortly after. From that point forward, I traded with hundreds of people worldwide, creating indelible memories. I organised and participated to a plethora of giveaways in the Wi-Fi subforum obtaining precious parents from which I built a lot of Pokémon featured in this thread. The Pokémon Village is my personal "work" and is meant to include all the Pokémon I have in my Pokémon HOME collection. Everything in this thread is collected and sorted by National Pokédex order and my main goal nowadays is obtaining flawless Pokémon that are fully ribboned throughout each generation and nicknamed accordingly, adapting to themes that come from every cultural facet of this world. This trend started with Sephirona and continued with Max. Optimizer, which have both been a great inspiration to me over the course of time. Since I have the specific tools to RNG abuse any Pokémon I desire in every game and generation, this thread has mainly become a showcase and reference thread. Regardless of that, don't be afraid to ask for something you might like, because there's a high chance that I give it to you for free.

Rules and information


Abide by Smogon Wi-Fi Rules.

Do not trade me hacked/genned/manipulated Pokémon. This hopefully goes without saying.

All of my Pokémon are 100% legit, obtained through RNG mechanics on cartridge by yours truly.

All of my Pokémon are fully redistributable by everyone.

Please only post a CMT in this thread if you have or have had a trade thread on Smogon.

Please note that all the Pokémon listed here are cloned.

I’m only interested in flawless, competitive Pokémon.

I don’t mind if the Pokémon traded to me originated from an emulator or comes from an injected wondercard.


In accordance with the rules, I do not accept Pokémon that have been transferred via unofficial means (i.e via PKHeX).

I’m generally not interested in Pokémon which have been Hyper Trained or in Pokémon whose nature has been changed via mints.

Regarding past gen Pokémon trades on the Switch, I'm only interested in Pokémon that have been fully ribboned on the (3)DS games.

I’m only interested in nicknamed Pokémon. In fact, all of my own Pokémon generally have a nickname.

If I give you something for free, you should give it for free too.

Please post in this thread for CMTs, do not PM or VM me.

I’m only interested in Pokémon from the following languages: ENG, ITA, CHN, JPN and KOR.

Here you will find Pokémon that are difficult to obtain or have a special meaning to me. All the Pokémon listed here are not for trade.


{#0105 - “Letuli”}
III
♂


IVs: 31/30/31/10/31/31 - Adamant\Rock Head (HA) - CHRIS\41842 - Kanto (Fire Red)
[Sw/Sh]: Stealth Rock | Flare Blitz | Poltergeist | Bonemerang
[88 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 164 Spe]

Ribbons:







Info about Letuli

Letuli is my third personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. The nickname is a reference to Freddie Letuli, who originated the fire knife dance in 1946 in San Francisco. To make Letuli even more unique, I decided to catch a shiny Cubone from Fire Red in a Master Ball (with the best Adamant spread on it available) and keep it unevolved throughout the generations until I could evolve it into Alolan Marowak on Gen 7.

{#0143 - “Tarrare”}
III
♂


IVs: 31/31/31/2/31/31 - Careful\Thick Fat - CHRIS\00143 - Kanto (Fire Red)
[S/V]: Curse | Body Slam | Earthquake | Rest
[252 HP / 152 Def / 104 SpD]

Ribbons:








Info about Tarrare

Tarrare is my ninth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. A Ribbon Master CurseLax is finally a possibility now thanks to the new Egg Move mechanics, so I had to get one for my Ribbon Master collection, especially considering the fact that Snorlax is also my favourite Kanto Pokémon and one of my favourite Pokémon in general. I preferred to get it from the Fire Red/Leaf Green games since I could get it shiny and for the nostalgic Kanto tag. After RNG abusing my savefile with the specific Pokédex TID for Snorlax, and the SID for square shininess, I managed to catch it on Route 12 after hitting the frame I had advanced thanks to the TeachyTV trick. From there, Tarrare did his best throughout the main games to obtain every possible available ribbon entirely on retail :p.
The nickname is a reference to Tarrare (1772-1798), a French showman and soldier noted for his unusual appetite and eating habits. He was primarily known for being constantly hungry and for being able to eat large quantities of food as well as unusual objects; since his family was unable to feed him, he traveled to France performing as a circus freak. Tarrare later moved to Paris, where he worked as a street artist and where he demonstrated that he was able to eat a meal sufficient for 15 people at one time and swallow live cats, snakes and other animals without chewing them. In case of fasting his skin would loosen so much that it could fold from his abdomen to his waist. If full, however, his abdomen swelled "like an enormous balloon". Wrinkly and flabby cheeks, when Tarrare opened his mouth, it could even hold twelve eggs or apples.

{#0243 - “Damon”}

IVs: 31/4/30/31/31/31 - Timid\Pressure - CHRIS\45030 - Orre (Colosseum)
[S/V]: Calm Mind | Thunderbolt | Aura Sphere | Scald
[252 SpA / 252 Spe / 6 SpD]

Ribbons:








Info about Damon

"Tyger! Tyger! Burning bright
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"

(William Blake, The Tyger)

Damon is my fifth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. Starting from Gen 8, Raikou has been quite buffed, much like Entei. Even if it lost Hidden Power (Hidden Power Ice was somehow mandatory in the previous generations - in fact Damon has been RNG abused with the best Hidden Power Ice spread available on Pokémon Colosseum), Raikou can now learn Scald, which hits Ground-type Pokémon for super effective damage just like Hidden Power Ice did, and it's also able to learn Aura Sphere, without the downside of being locked to a Rash nature anymore! The only way to obtain a flawless Raikou from Gen 3 is getting it from Pokémon Colosseum, since due to the Roaming glitch on Pokémon Fire Red & Leaf Green the Johto beasts have a maximum of 0 IV in Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed; moreover, Raikou is also pretty tedious to RNG abuse as the Cipher Lab is a noisy area and your frames will quickly jump all over the place: this explains why Coloseum Raikou is a perfect candidate for a Ribbon Master! The nickname Damon is a reference to the mighty tiger ridden by the ten-armed goddess Durga (दुर्गा) into war in Hindu mythology, symbol of immense power, bravery and valor.

{#0244 - “Yajna”}

III
Ø

IVs: 31/31/31/11/31/31 - Adamant\Inner Focus (HA) - CHRIS\18923 - Orre (Colosseum)
[S/V]: Sacred Fire | Flare Blitz | Extreme Speed | Stone Edge
[252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 Def]

Ribbons:








Info about Yajna

"Who is that is born again?
It is the moon that is born again.
And what is the great vessel?
The great vessel, doubtless, is this world.
Who was the smooth one?
The smooth one, doubtless, was the beauty (Sri, Lakhsmi)
What is the remedy for cold?
The remedy for cold, doubtless, is fire."

(Shatapatha Brahmana, 13.2.6.10-18)

Yajna is my fourth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. Starting from Gen 8, Game Freak decided to make things a lot easier for Entei: Flare Blitz, being a Gen 4 Event exclusive move on Entei up to Gen 7, became a TR/TM, while Extreme Speed, move limited to the same exact Gen 4 event, is now a simple Level-Up move! Entei's Hidden Ability, Inner Focus, blocking every kind of Attack drop (most notably from Intimidate), became the standard ability on every physical Entei. The Ability Patch, introduced in the Crown Tundra DLC, made the Hidden Ability possible on every kind of Entei, meaning that Entei from Pokémon Colosseum can easily obtain its HA! With all these things considered, it was finally time to acquire myself a special Entei from this game and Ribbon Master it. The nickname Yajna, meaning "sacred fire", refers to the fire rituals and sacrifices practiced in devotion of Lord Vishnu (विष्णु) in Hinduism and connects well with Entei's shared move with Ho-Oh, Sacred Fire.

IVs: 31/6/31/31/31/31 - Timid\Pressure - CHRIS\59184 - Orre (Colosseum)
[S/V]: Substitute | Calm Mind | Scald | Protect
[252 HP / 252 Spe / 6 SpD]

Ribbons:








Info about Azzurra

"[...] E come il vento
odo stormir tra queste piante, io quello
infinito silenzio a questa voce
vo comparando: e mi sovvien l'eterno,
e le morte stagioni, e la presente
e viva, e il suon di lei. Così tra questa
immensità s'annega il pensier mio:
e il naufragar m'è dolce in questo mare."

(Giacomo Leopardi, L'infinito)

Azzurra is my sixth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. After getting myself a flawless shiny Entei and Raikou from Pokémon Colosseum, it was finally time to get my hands on the last Pokémon to complete the Crown Beast trio: a beautiful shiny Suicune in a Dive Ball! With the Substitute + Calm Mind set Azzurra can effectively abuse Pressure in a number of ways, especially for PP stalling. Maximum HP and Speed investment with a Timid nature gives Azzurra the most amount of overall bulk and makes her as fast as possible so that she can set up Substitutes more safely. The nickname Azzurra is a feminine Italian name and it means "sky blue", the color associated with both the sea and the sky in Italian and with shiny Suicune's color palette. The name also means "pure"; "clear", and can link to the fact that Suicune has the power to walk across water and purify it with one touch, as it dashes through the North wind.

IVs: 31/0/31/31/31/31 - Bold\Marvel Scale - Chris\00350 - Hoenn (Emerald)
[S/V]: Scald | Ice Beam | Haze | Recover
[252 HP / 252 Def / 6 SpD]

Ribbons:








Info about Raanana

Raanana is my eighth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. A few years after obtaining Oceania, my Gen 4 Milotic caught a few months after I joined Smogon in 2009, and learning RNG Abuse in Generation 3, I thought it was finally time to get my hands on a shiny Milotic from the Hoenn region, which would have become Oceania’s beloved sister right after the moment I would have captured her. Water-type Pokémon are my favourites and Milotic is my favourite Water-type Pokémon, hence a Ribbon Master Milotic from her game of origin could not be missing from my collection. I checked that a Bold 0 Atk spread was possible and hittable in Pokémon Emerald thanks to the Synchronize mechanics, and RNG abused a square shiny savefile with 00350 as TID, to match Milotic's Pokédex number. Luckily, this spread had multiple encounter slots, and I eventually managed to run into a wild shiny Feebas. After securing her in a Dive Ball, Raanana's ribboning journey finally began! Milotic, in a certain sense, has been my thread mascot throughout the generations and I really wish she will be included in every Gen 8+ Pokémon game. The nickname Raanana (רַעֲנָנָּה) is a Hebrew feminine name, meaning "rebirth". I decided to pick this nickname as Raanana has been trained and ribboned during the challenges that the world is recently facing, marking the desire to start a new, positive and prosperous cycle.

IVs: 31/31/31/11/31/31 - Adamant\Clear Body - CHRIS\18923 - Orre (Colosseum)
[S/V]: Heavy Slam | Bullet Punch | Psychic Fangs | Earthquake
[252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 Def]

Ribbons:








Info about Nikephoros

"Πλάσματα μιας ημέρας! Τι είναι ο καθένας;
Τι δεν είναι κανείς; Ένα όνειρο μιας σκιάς
Είναι το θνητό μας ον. Αλλά όταν πρόκειται για άνδρες
Μια λάμψη λαμπρότητας από τον ουρανό,
Τότε στηρίζεται πάνω τους ένα φως δόξας
Και ευλογημένες είναι οι μέρες τους."

(Pindar, Pythian 8)

Nikephoros is my seventh personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. Colosseum shiny Metagross has always held a special place in my heart because it is the only Metagross that you can Ribbon Master that can be obtained outside of a Pokéball in the Generation 3 games: the one you find at Steven's House after Defeating Elite Four in RSE is, in fact, in a plain Pokéball. Even if Colosseum Metagross is not as laborious to obtain as Raikou, it still requires a few tricks to do in battle to advance your battle frames in a consistent way. I decided to run the Choice Band set on Nikephoros, Metagross's staple set since the Gen 3 era; Nikephoros (Νικηφόρος) is a Greek male name, meaning "the one who carries victory".

Info about Gioia

Gioia is my first personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. This lovely creature has every ribbon/mark from Gen 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9. Latias is one of my favourite Pokémon, plus it's shiny and it’s caught with the only Luxury Ball available on Emerald. Her nickname means "joy" in italian, one of the most meaningful of all human emotions. Shout out to Ezeltjeswag and Lego for helping me in getting the Earth Ribbon on her.

Info about Yoshiyuki

Yoshiyuki is my second personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3. Originally RNG abused with Hidden Power Fighting, Yoshiyuki has now Aura Sphere in Gen 8, a definitely stronger Fighting-type move! Yoshiyuki (義行) is a Japanese male name, meaning "the one who acts virtuously". Shout out to Xen for providing the legit Eon ticket on my Sapphire game.

Medeus (メディウス) was an earth dragon king and the only known earth dragon to have willingly become a Manakete, featured in the Fire Emblem videogame. He was the first and only ruler of the Dolhr Empire, reviled and feared across Archanea as the tyrannical Shadow Dragon (暗黒竜 “Dark Dragon”). His years of watching over his captured brethren on behalf of the divine dragon Naga deeply embittered him against humanity and their cruelty toward his fellow Manaketes, to which he sought revenge by founding Dolhr and subjecting humanity to years of cruel conquest and oppression under his rule. The Sport Ball was chosen to match the vivid orange of shiny Charizard's flame on its tail.

Tobirama was a fair-skinned man with silver, shaggy hair and dark-coloured eyes. His mastery of Water Release allowed him to create vast quantities of the substance without a present water source, enabling him to use high-level Water Release techniques at any given time. He could shoot high-pressured streams from his mouth to slice through targets or form needle-shaped projectiles to catch an opponent off-guard while attacking their vital points. In the anime, he could cover an entire battlefield in water and shape it into tendrils to pull targets down with him to drown them.

[S/V]: Flare Blitz | Head Smash | Close Combat | Extreme Speed

The nickname is a reference to Gelert, a legendary wolfhound associated with the village of Beddgelert (whose name means "Gelert's Grave") in Gwynedd, north-west Wales. In the legend, Llywelyn the Great returns from hunting to find his baby missing, the cradle overturned, and Gelert with a blood-smeared mouth. Believing the dog had devoured the child, Llywelyn draws his sword and kills Gelert. After the dog's dying yelp, Llywelyn hears the cries of the baby, unharmed under the cradle, along with a dead wolf which had attacked the child and been killed by Gelert. Llywelyn is overcome with remorse and buries the dog with great ceremony, but can still hear its dying yelp. After that day, Llywelyn never smiles again. The nickname was chosen since I wanted to draw a parallel between the previous Lord of Firespit Island appearing in Pokémon Legends: Arceus's plot, an Arcanine who died while saving a Pokémon from drowning in the sea, and Gelert who equally died trying to save the baby child from the wolf.

The Jinmenju (人面樹) is a strange-looking and eerie tree that grows in hilly regions far from civilization. While a Jinmenju otherwise appears to be nothing more than a twisted, gnarled cherry tree, the fruit that hangs from its branches makes it impossible to mistake for any other flora, for each fleshy melon possesses the semblance of a human head. A Jinmenju can alter these head-fruits to resemble virtually any form, making the rotting melons attractive or at least intriguing to potential prey. Using its ability to delve into nearby creatures’ memories, a Jinmenju simulates the appearance of whichever creature (or fruit) will draw prey within range of its branches, which it uses to pummel enraptured creatures to unconsciousness before devouring them.

The nickname is a reference to the Ashvattha (अश्वत्थ), a sacred and eternal world-tree in Hindu mythology. Ashvattha is used metaphorically to describe the mighty, many branched system of integrated consciousness, life force and afferent and efferent nerves, that is the composite of man: our existence. The roots above show our spiritual dimension, whereas the branches below depict our material bondages. Material existence is rooted in the spiritual. The Ashvattha tree is also a way of visualizing all the things that keep people bound to karma. It suggests the world of transitory beings, which are ever in the process of change -- nothing remaining the same from the present moment to the next. The Hindu Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara) is believed to dwell in this tree.

Hawaiian stories of going to the underworld after the soul of the dead and restoring it to the body are based on the Hawaiian philosophy of life, whose tendency is to dissociate the spirit or soul (uhane) from the body (kino) and to think of it with a quite independent life of its own apart from the body, which is dead or inert without it. The spirit (uhane) may wander away from the living body, leaving it asleep or merely listless and drowsy, and visit another in dream or as an apparition (hihi‘o) while the other is awake.

The theme of the rebirth can also be implied in the fact that the scarabs continuously lay their eggs in the dung in an act of spontaneous self-creation.

The northern seas of the marine part of the map teems with fantastic sea monsters either drawn or approved by Olaus: the most dramatic of those, off the busy coast of Norway, below the dreaded Maelström, is the great serpent ("Sea Orm"), which is depicted as a bright red monster coiling around a ship's mast and lunging with bared teeth at a sailor on the deck. The Latin legend accompanying the image indicates the monster is 300 feet in length "wrapping itself around a big ship and destroying it".

The nickname is a reference to the Oseberg ship (Osebergskipet), a well-preserved Viking ship discovered in a large burial mound at the Oseberg farm, in Norway.

The bow and stern are decorated with complex carvings in the characteristic animalistic style called Oseberg style: the bow ends in a spiral, with a snake's head, and the stern ends in a tail. Although intended for sea navigation, the ship is rather fragile and is therefore thought to have been used exclusively for coastal travel.
The ship is commonly acknowledged to be among the finest artifacts to have survived from the Viking Age. It is displayed at the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo, Norway.

The nickname is a reference to Mary Anning (1799-1847), an English fossil collector and palaeontologist who became known around the world for the discoveries she made in Jurassic marine fossil beds in South West England. In 1823 Mary Anning was the first to discover the complete skeleton of a Plesiosaurus, a long-necked marine reptile with four flippers. The plesiosaur skeleton was important because it was almost complete.
In a letter to Sir Henry Bunbury she wrote: "I have endeavoured in a rough sketch to give you some idea of what it is like. Sir you understand me right in thinking that I said it was the supposed plesiosaurus [sic], but its remarkable long neck and small head, shows that it does not in the least verifie [sic] their conjecturs [sic]; in its Analogy to the Ichthyasaurus, it is large and heavy but one thing I may venture to assure you it is the first and only one discovered in Europe...[...]". Mary Anning's discoveries also included the first correctly identified ichthyosaur skeleton when she was twelve years old and the first pterosaur skeleton located outside Germany.
