Ut: Thunder Cage, Electroweb, Extreme Speed, Magnet Rise
EV'd: Wild Charge, Volt Switch, Extreme Speed, Explosion
[4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe]

This Pokémon was soft-reset manually: this means that no tools (such as e.g. bots) were involved in the hunt for this Pokémon.
I started soft-resetting on the 20th of November 2020 and I finally received the shiny Regieleki on the 5th of December 2020 at 9:36 p.m after soft-resetting for 16 days.
The Shiny Charm does not affect Regieleki's shininess in any way, shape, or form and the odds of encountering a shiny Pokémon without any modifying factors are 1/4096 in Generation 6, 7, and 8 games.
Synchronizers do not work on Regieleki.
I finished the Galar Ribbon Master™ on the 26th of December 2020.

The nickname is a reference to the eponymous drone from Iain M. Bank's ❝The Culture❞ science fiction book series.

Hi MO! Would you please CMT for your shiny Regieleki? My list of Battle-Ready things is here, since I know that's more where your interest lies :) I also have that shiny Jolly Master Ball Defiant Thundurus you're after, if your "looking for" list is up to date.

Hi MO! Would you please CMT for your shiny Regieleki?
With pleasure, Tate.

I'd be interested in trading for your ❝Psalm 46❞ Stakataka.
I already have one with 17 Defense IVs, hence why one with 15 Defense IVs would round off the set perfectly.
That, and, well, I have a predilection for living walls.
Would it be possible to receive a BR copy in Gen 7 for ribboning purposes?

Let me know what you think.

Sure thing! Coincidentally though, Psalm 46 is one of the Pokémon I’ll be giving away as part of my anniversary giveaway next week, so is there another one you’d like? (I can give you a copy of him as well) Wouldn’t want you feel like you were jipped!

It's alright, no worries.
I used to do the same thing with my friend Blueforce, I always traded for his giveaway Pokémon, as opposed to getting them for free.
It's just more fun for me that way!

You can message me tomorrow whenever it's the most convenient for you.

Public Service Announcement
<Totes> Christian Light Sanctity Tatertot

With Kanon90's expertise, I found out that 1 SpA can be used for a niche strategy in VGC.
The strategy requires you to use a weak Volt Switch into your partner holding a Weakness Policy.
Since some users have shown interest in the UT version of my Regieleki, I finally decided to revamp it.
I thus wanted to offer every competitive player I recently traded the now-old version a copy of the new version for free as well.
Please do not hesitate to send me a message on Discord if you are interested.

Please find down below the new and definitive version:

Bonjour Gaudi,

I can trade you ❝Martin❞, sure, no problem at all.
❝Hrímfaxi❞ is a different story, you'd have to CMT The Chaotician himself for it via DM/VM.

I'll send you a message on Discord, a bientôt!

Po Town, her hatching location, is a reference to the Liberio internment zone in Marley, a ghetto-like place surrounded by walls that functioned as a place for Eldians to live.
The Liberio internment zone incidentally became the battlefield for Lara Tybur and Eren Jäger.
Her ID number 002000 is a reference to the pilot episode of ❝Attack on Titan❞, called ❝To you, in 2000 years❞.
Her in-game hatching date of April 7th 2013 is a reference to the airing date of the aforementioned pilot episode of ❝Attack on Titan❞.

It was named after Sue Hendrickson, the fossil collector that discovered the fossil on August 12, 1990, while exploring the cliffs at the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation in western South Dakota near the city of Faith.
Interestingly enough, she only found the fossil because her group's truck had a flat tire and she wanted to pass the time while exploring the area while waiting for the truck to be repaired.
Sue is now a permanent feature at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois.

The nickname is a reference to the eponymous sacred bull worshiped in ancient Egyptian religion, identified as the son of Hathor, a primary deity in the pantheon of ancient Egypt.
For a bull to earn the name of ❝Apis❞, its body had to be mainly black, just like the color palette of shiny Tapu Bulu.
In addition to this, having a white crescent moon shape on its right flank was also a necessary prerequisite, in order to qualify as ❝Apis❞.
This motif goes notably well with the Moon Ball that was chosen to catch this Tapu Bulu.
Apis's mother was also believed to have conceived him by a ❝flash of lightning from the heavens❞, or from ❝moonbeams❞.

Doppio shares his body with Diavolo and regularly hallucinates random objects as ❝phones❞ with which he talks with the latter.
The nickname was chosen because shiny Aipom's and shiny Ambipom's color palette matches that of Doppio.
In addition to this, ❝doppio❞ means ❝double❞ in Italian, which is the overall theme of this evolution line.
The TID, the nature, and the IV spread are from the same savegame as ❝Giorno❞ the Sneasel/Weavile.​

The nickname is a reference to the eponymous Great Dane that played the role of the hound in the 20th Century Fox 1939 movie adaptation of ❝The Hound of the Baskervilles❞.
The nickname was chosen for a shiny Houndoom, since the movie hound was described as ❝blue❞.
The shiny sparkles bear striking resemblance to the fluorescent phosphorus that was rubbed on the hound, in order to achieve the hellish aura.
The Moon Ball was chosen, since the moonlight let the hound glow in the darkness of Dartmoor.

Greetings, MO. Rain from Smogon Wifi Discord here. I’m contacting you on your thread because I’ve been absent from Discord recently (not sure if anyone noticed I was missing, LOL).

Anyway, after almost a month I will finally be able to catch myself a perfect square shiny Indeedee which I promised to offer you. I checked your thread as you requested and I would like to trade for your Giratina “Sheol”.

I’d be happy for you to add my Indeedee to your thread, but I would like for you to make her non-redistributable so that she isn’t being devalued by excessive cloning. I couldn’t think of much in the way of a nickname though, so I am still open to suggestions there.

I am off to sleep now, so I’m shooting a message now in hopes that we will be able to make the trade tomorrow. Bye!

Greetings, Rain.
We did notice, yes, hence why I'm glad to read from you again.

Yes, I will gladly trade you Mehlord's ❝Sheol❞.
As a matter of fact, since I am a man of my word, I will also throw in a copy of ❝Killua❞, my shiny Zeraora.
I know that you missed out on the event and I figured you should have a nicknamed one for your collection.
Consider it a way of saying ❝Thank you❞.

I will indeed think of a nickname for the Indeedee and display her in my thread.
I will label her as ❝NFT❞ (Not For Trade), which means that I will not trade her at all.
❝Non-Redis❞ means that I can trade the Pokémon, but whoever receives it from me cannot trade it further.

Sure thing, I will have both Pokémon ready for you once you wake up later.
You can ping me on Discord once you're available.

Sia later!
 
Sounds good to me, and thanks for remembering about the Zeraora! I was quite disappointed to have missed such a cool event mon. Making Indeedee NFT is also a good call.
