Hey I'm interested in this dude in Gen 7, I've already some mons ready for battle that could interest you but since they come from a French game, you probably won't be interested. So instead, I prepared a GDoc with all my breedables if you're interested: Available breed - Google Sheets
Thanks in advance !

Greetings SpiritGuy, I'd be happy to trade you Claas Cougar in exchange for two Gen 8 breedables: your Beast Ball Spiritomb and, if possible, Safari Ball Sceptile (I saw you have a Dream Ball one, and wanted to ask you if you still had Sceptile saved in your Dynamax Adventures and could catch one in a Safari Ball as I would like to Masuda breed it later). Let me know what you think.

I've already several perfect spiritombs in my box so no problem for it. Concerning Sceptile, I don't know if it's saved since I don't know how to RNG on SWSH but I still can try to catch one in a Safari Ball during dynamax adventures.

Sounds good, I'm in no rush so I can wait for Sceptile; I just need the Safari Ball on it, so don't feel obliged to give it EMs/flawless IVs. You can either post here, PM or VM me whenever you're ready.

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.

10/08/2021 UPDATE (8 new Pokémon)

The following updates will include a few Ribbon Masters I have recently completed from Colosseum, they have all the 85 available ribbons from Gen 3-8, but as Bright Diamond and Shining Pearl games will most likely have new ribbons, they will need to be updated as soon as Pokémon HOME compatibility is out for these games in early 2022. :psywoke:


{#244 - “Yajna” }

Ribbons:



Info about Yajna

Yajna is my fifth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3, featuring every possible ribbon from Gen 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8. Game Freak decided to make things a lot easier for Entei on Pokémon Sword & Shield: Flare Blitz, being a Gen 4 Event exclusive move on Entei up to Gen 7, became a Technical Record, 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 available 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.

According to the Cherokee creation myth, at the beginning of the universe there was just water. All the animals lived above it and the sky was overcrowded. They were all curious about what was behind the water and one day, Dayuni'si, the water beetle, volunteered to explore it. He explored below the surface to the bottom and all he found was mud which he brought back to the surface. After collecting the mud, it began to grow in size and spread outwards until it became the Earth as we know it.

Ribbons:



Info about Damon

Damon is my sixth personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3, featuring every possible ribbon from Gen 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8. Much like Entei, Raikou has been quite buffed on Pokémon Sword & Shield. 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 on Gen 8, 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.

Kurapika has medium blond hair with brown eyes and is a very intelligent individual: he created Nen abilities that allowed him to defeat all members of the Phantom Troupe, a feat that is extremely impressive considering how powerful and diverse the members of the Troupe are. His strategies rarely fail and his analytical abilities are so great that some believe he can read minds.

Ng Mui ("five plums"), one of the legendary Five Elders, was a Vietnamese buddhist nun and a legendary martial artist, master of various martial arts like the Shaolin, the Wudang, the Ng Ying Kung Fu and inventor of the Wing Chun system, widely recognised as one of the top five martial artists in China during the early 1700s. Ng Mui had been a student at the Henan Shaolin Monastery when it was destroyed. She fled to the White Crane Temple and there she met a young girl who was being forced into marriage by a bandit. Ng Mui taught the girl to defend herself by distilling Shaolin martial arts knowledge into a quick lesson. Her clever, adaptable style of self defense was a great equalizer as it took away the advantages of size, weight or gender.

The nickname is a reference to the Chol (חוֹל), the mythical animal mentioned in most passages of the Hebrew Bible, sometimes referred to as "phoenix". The Chol bird can be called by special kabbalistic chants and is said to not have been tempted by evil: when Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge following the serpent's advice, Eve fed the animals and the birds. Only the bird named Chol refused it because it was following Job's advice: "and in my nest, I shall perish, and like the sand, I shall have many days".

Jolly (minted) - Leaf Guard
31 | HT | HT | 27 | HT | HT
252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 SpD
Power Whip | Darkest Lariat | Close Combat | U-turn

The nickname is a reference to the name that the Gautama Buddha had when he was still a Bodhisattva, as a king of the monkeys. The monkey ruled by Mahākapi lived at a spot near the Ganges and ate of the fruit of a great mago tree. The king Brahmadatta of Benares desiring to possess the mangoes, surrounded the tree with his soldiers, in order to kill the animals, but the Bodhisattva Mahākapi formed a bridge over the stream self-sacrificing his own body and by this means enabled the whole tribe to escape into safety.

"Victorious king, I guard the herd, I am their lord and chief,
When they were filled with fear of thee and stricken sore with grief.
I leapt a hundred times the length of bow outstretched that lies,
When I had bound a bamboo-shoot firmly around my thighs:
I reached the tree like thunder-cloud sped by the tempest’s blast;
I lost my strength, but reached a bough: with hands I held it fast.
And as I hung extended there held fast by shoot and bough,
My monkeys passed across my back and are in safety now."

Info about Azzurra

Azzurra is my seventh personal Ribbon Master project from Gen 3, featuring every possible ribbon from Gen 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8. 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! Like Yajna (Entei), Azzurra was caught in the Pokémon Colosseum post-game at the Deep Colosseum, since Dive balls are only accessible once you've completed the game by transferring a Pokémon from one of the GBA games (Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald) that is holding one. 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.

#103. “Ashvattha” (

Quiet - Frisk
31 | 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 0

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.

Wehemmesu is an ancient Egyptian name, meaning “rebirth, resurrection”. The name is closely linked to the beetle (or scarab) being one of Egypt’s crowning symbols of rebirth: Egyptians would remove the heart of the deceased and replace it with a small, stone amulet of a beetle as they associated this little creature with the act of resurrection and creation. 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.

Bold - Torrent

Moonblast | Scald | Rest | Sleep Talk

The nickname is a reference to the eponymous character appearing in the story of Kópakonan (the Seal Woman), one of the best-known folktales in the Fær Øer Islands. Seals were believed to be former human beings who voluntarily sought death in the ocean. A young farmer wondering if this story was true, went and lay in wait on a local beach. He watched and saw the seals arriving in large numbers, swimming towards the shore. The young lad stared at a pretty seal girl named Kópakonan placing her skin close to the spot where he was hiding, and when the dance began, he sneaked up and stole it. The seal girl was very upset when she couldn’t find her skin. The farmer kept her with him for many years as his wife, and she bore him several children; but he always had to make sure that she didn’t have access to her skin. However, one day the man forgets his key at home, and comes back to his farm to find that his selkie wife has taken her skin and returned to the ocean. Later, when the farmer is out on a hunt, he kills Kópakonan's selkie husband and two selkie sons. Enraged, the selkie woman promises vengeance for her lost kin: deaths that occur on the island are thought to be due to the Kópakonan's curse.

31 | 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31
252 SpA / 252 Spe / 6 Def
Parting Shot | Dark Pulse | Psychic | Burning Jealousy

The nickname is a reference to Reynard the fox, an anthropomorphic red fox and trickster appearing in a literary cycle of medieval allegorical Dutch, English, French, and German fables, arose in the area between Flanders and Germany in the 10th and 11th centuries, when clerks began to forge Latin beast epics out of popular tales. Reynard's adventures usually involve him deceiving other anthropomorphic animals for his own advantage or trying to avoid their retaliatory efforts. Though Reynard is sly, amoral, cowardly, and self-seeking, he is still a sympathetic hero, whose cunning is a necessity for survival. The marked satirical content of the stories is an allegory to the feudal system and the power of the corrupt Chatolic church in the Middle Ages.
