Ev'd: Ice Beam, Psyshock, Counter, Lovely Kiss
{252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe}

The nickname is a reference to Tae Aizawa from the ❝Megure's Sealed Secret❞ murder case in Gosho Ayoama's ❝Detective Conan❞ manga series.
In this case, the women Tae Aizawa, Ryouko Mizutani, Hitomi Endou, and Michiko Ishiguro are used to make a reference to the Japanese Gyaru (ギャル) fashion subculture.
Jynx's design is a parody of the Ganguro (ガングロ) and Yamanba (やまんば) gyaru styles, characterized by an artificial deep tan, bleached hair, white makeup around the eyes and on the lips, and darker shades on the eyes.
The reference is also interesting for Jynx, since the label of ❝Yamanaba❞, related to the Yamanba (やまんば) gyaru style, also means ❝old mountain hag❞.

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!

Shout-out to J_lamar96 and Tatertot for the amazing Pokémon.
Shout-out to Lego from Smogon, as well as u/Razor215 from r/SVExchange for hatching the eggs for me.

{252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe}

The nickname is a reference to Lara Tybur from Hajime Isayama's ❝Attack on Titan❞ manga series, host of the War Hammer Titan.
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❞.

{4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe}

The nickname is a reference to the nickname given to one of the largest, most extensive, and best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex specimens ever found.
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.

{252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe}

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❞.

This Pokémon was snagged from Cipher Peon Cole in Cipher Lab on the 9th of February 2021.
Aipom was intentionally defeated in Cipher Lab so that it could be caught in a Master Ball later on.
The nickname is a reference to Vinegar Doppio, the eponymous character from Vento Aureo, the 5th part of Hirohiko Araki's ❝JoJo's Bizarre Adventure❞ manga series.
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.
I finished the Ribbon Master™ on the 17th of March 2021.

The nickname is a reference to Charlotte Katakuri from Eiichiro Oda's ❝One Piece❞ manga series.
More precisely, the nickname is a reference to the eponymous light meal breaks he occasionally takes, during which he feasts on his favorite food of doughnuts and drinks tea.
In Southern Europe, this light meal fills in the meal gap between the noontime meal and the evening meal.
Note: This Polteageist is in fact one of the ❝authentic❞ Antique variety.

The nickname is a reference to the epoynmous stag which stands upon Valhalla in Norse mythology.
The nickname was chosen, since the location of Eikþyrnir (Old Norse ❝oak-thorny❞) bears striking resemblance to Calyrex's location at the Crown Shrine.
❝Eikþyrnir heitir hiörtr,❞
❝er stendr á höllo Heriaföðrs❞
❝ok bítr af Læraðs limom;❞
❝en af hans hornom❞

The nickname is a reference to the eponymous bird from Welsh folklore that portends death.
According to the folklore, the bird landing on the sill outside someone's windows heralds the imminent death of the person in question.
It signals its presence by letting out a cry that comes eerily close to ❝dewch❞ in Welsh, meaning ❝come❞ in English.

The nickname is a reference to Áo, the large marine turtle from Chinese mythology.
Gònggōng, the Chinese god of water had knocked against Pu-chou mountain during his battle with Chuan Hsu, causing the pillar of heaven to break and the cord of Earth to snap.
In response, goddess Nǚwā (女娲), creator of humans in Chinese mythology, had chopped off Áo's legs to use them as supporting pillars to carry the sky.
