Second Annual Secret Delibird--Christmukkah in December Edition

cephalopodAscendant wrote:Well then, I guess we need to start organizing the next Secret Santa.
I promise I won't disappear.
The Rules, I guess:

1. Most importantly: your gift can be any pokemon that is available for you, but please, make it unique (eggmoves, strategies, shiny) Nickname is a must. Preferably give fully EV trained, lv 50 pokemon.

2. This time the Secret Santa is mainly for the 6th gen games (X&Y), but it's still open for people who only have gen 5.

3. Sign-ups for the Secret Santa are open now and will close on Friday, Dec 6. On Saturday, Dec 7, Secret Santa assignments will be dispersed via whatever system I can send it to people. Once name assignments are dispersed, you have until Dec 24th to make your Secret Santa gift and get in contact with your giftee for delivery. After you have delivered your gift, please drop by the thread and let us know!

4. By signing up for this Secret Santa, you are promising that you have the resources available to make and send via Wi-fi trade the Pokemon you pledge to produce. If, once you receive your Secret Santa assignment, you find that you are not able to give your giftee a gift that reasonably fits what they are requesting, please let me know ASAP via PM and I will do my best to get you the help you need.

5. If you have not been able to give (or have not received) your Secret Santa gift by Dec 24th, please let me know via PM and I will work with you to get you in touch with your assigned Secret Santa partner ASAP.

edit:
a message from gelatino

here's what we're gonna do.  everybody who wants to receive a gift should describe what kind of pokemon they want.  it doesn't have to be a concise list; you can just say something like "any dragon types" or "anything red."  also, if you want a specific nature, level, or ev training, then you should say so.

when you make this post, please begin your post with the following words, formatted in exactly this way:

what people want:

invisibleTerrarium wrote:THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR SECRET SANTA
Literally anything shiny that isnt Tangrowth, Corsola, Miltank, or anything in the Victreebel line.
Or a cool relatively strong non-shiny thing.
cephalopodAscendant wrote:THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR SECRET SANTA:
Any shiny apart from Skrelp/Dragalge and Gible/Gabite/Garchomp (I've already got both, even if Gible still needs to be transferred up), but especially Beldum/Metang/Metagross, Omanyte/Omastar, or Inkay/Malamar
Basically any X-exclusive apart from Swirlix/Slurpuff
Any good Poison-types
Any combination of the above
Gelatino wrote:THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR SECRET SANTA:
basically anything that can't normally be found in the wild.  this means friend safari pokemon.  it should be competitively viable, meaning good nature, good evs, and appropriate egg moves if you're giving it to me as a baby.  ivs and level are irrelevant.
Spark Eletran wrote:THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR SECRET SANTA:
if possible some shiny thing i could use specially if its an actually good looking shiny, inkays a cool one for example
or maybe a clauncher/clawitzer, ev trained if possible
if neither of those are an actual possibility, then just a cool 'mon that was ev trained and has a good nature works
Dregadude wrote:THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR SECRET SANTA:
Something that isn't Fire, Psychic, Grass, Fighting, Bug, Flying, Water, and Rock; i.e. something that'll fit into my team of Delphox, Chesnaught, Vespiquen, and Barbaracle. Something sweeper-y maybe, although a special wall/sweeper would be desirable as well. Right now I'm missing a good counter to Dragon, Electric, Fairy, Poison, and Ghost, if that helps. EV trained if possible, nickname is a must, don't care about shiny. Right now my team is level ~25. If between now and the deadline I add a member to my team (not sure if I will, but just in case) I'll list that here too.

Specific Pokemon I don't want are under the spoiler. These are mostly because I've already trained them in the past and I make it my goal to always train new Pokemon in a new team. Even though it represents around five fully trained teams, I already eliminated Pokemon with the same types that I already have in Y.
no plz:
Nidoking, Wigglytuff, Ampharos, Flygon, Absol, Luxray, Zebstrika
Also I would prefer not to get Volcarona or Aegislash, those are just two I don't really want to train since basically everyone does.

To the person who's pairing us up, if you could give me to someone who's competitively minded that would be great.

Sorry to be THAT GUY who posts like a billion rules, but tbh I'm after something useful out of this instead of a cool or memorable trophy like most others.

phantasmalDexterity wrote:THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR SECRET SANTA:
I'm fine with pretty much everything, but here are some pokemon that I wouldn't like to get:
Spoiler:
Haxorus, Leafeon, Jolteon, Umbreon, Galvantula, Floatzel, Dragonair, Omastar, Kanto starters, female Meowstic, Pangoro and Greninja
Also, give it an interesting moveset (think up a cool strategy for it), and be at least EV trained.
Shiny and IV is optional but welcomed.
Air12473 wrote:There is one this I really want: Shiny Skiddo =DDD its too cute.
Things I don't want:
Spoiler:
Cloyser, Dragalge, Tyrantrum, Delphox, Lucario, Gengar, Clawitzer, Garchomp, Unova/Kanto starters, Blaziken, Accelgor, Malamar, Zoroark, Alakazam, Salamance, Mawaile, Honedge (or evos), or pokemon that evo with stones.

Pref Safari pokemon: Spheal, Togepi, Swadloon, petlil or more fairies =D
no need for shiny other than skiddoooo and IV are not necessary =)
I got my gift ready all that's left is wrapping/EVs =D GET EXCITED =D
tinning3 wrote:THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR SECRET SANTA

In terms of if shinies are offered, I already have Magneton, Shinx, and Boldore. I'll not be wanting any of the Slow family at all either as Rozewolf already gave me an amazing Slowbro during the Secret Summer Santa.

I'd prefer the mon to be nicknamed and I don't mind if the trade is done in Gen V or VI.

Apart from that, I just hope you have fun with it Very Happy
d_what wrote:What I want for Christmas or w/e is:
Spoiler:

I have a lot of Pokémon. Like, a LOT a lot. Lot. So to that end, here's a list of Pokémon that might end up being somewhat awkward if I received them, but again I won't mind if you're really really REALLY happy with giving one of them for whatever reason. It's just that they're all pretty good and I've no reason to replace them. Hanky-related edit: shinies are exempt from this... except in certain cases. But shininess is a bonus and is not preferred to anything else.
Pokemon I have already:

Ninetales
Arcanine
Cloyster
Starmie
Vaporeon
Dragonite
Politoed
Donphan
Quagsire
Umbreon
Scizor
Forretress
Tyranitar
Sharpedo
Garchomp
Toxicroak
Weavile
Gliscor
Reuniclus
Sawsbuck
Scrafty
Eelektross
Hydreigon
Salamence
Heracross
Froslass
Chandelure

Greninja
Talonflame
Absol
Gengar
Gourgeist


Rotom

Ferrothorn

Azumarill

Gyarados

Excadrill

Hippowdon

Mamoswine

Scolipede
Togekiss
Ditto

Do not do these on pain of huge disappointment, no seriously, don't even consider it:
Swampert
Dragalge


Eelektross

Reuniclus

Absol

Scizor




And shinies of the following, should they randomly come up, are basically completely useless:

Togekiss

Dragonite

Sharpedo

Arcanine




Thank you + sorry :0

Anything but Cloyster or Alakazam.
NinteNerd wrote:"WHAT I WANT FROM SECRET SANTA:"
anything here:
i realize a lot of these aren't available.
i may or may not just keep a spritegird of all the pokemon i've trained and/or want to train around in a random powerpoint don't judge me.
I put additional markings on them for the purposes of this
…in hindsight, those are just as much for myself as they are for the SS-er. Gives me something to go by concerning hiddens.
a shiny of anything but those a yellow X with would be neat, while those with a red star would be particularly awesome
things with a blue H have hidden abilities that I want to use.
if neither of those, i'd like the thing to have 4+ prefect IV'S and be a good nature. Egg moves are super-cool where they’re possible. EV-ing and levels don’t matter to me.
the frame colors aren’t important here, I just used dark red to remind myself which I haven’t bred and/or trained yet, bright red to show those i haven’t been able to get, and blue to show mine with hidden abilities.
The ones without frames are ones I’m on the edge about raising, though I’ll certainly raise it should you choose to give me one of those.
edit: holy balls that image was huge. toned it down to be slightly more reasonable.
not shown: GIVE ME A SKY SHAYMIN AND I AM YOURS FOREVER
Rozewolf wrote:What I want for Secret Santa:

Anything dark, fire or steel type though I'm pretty open for whatever

Wow so politically correct :0 we don't have that here because nobody really cares as long as good cheer is involved.

(Good cheer = excuse for drinking)

And yes I suppose so!

Did you hear that guys? We're all invited to iT's house for Christmas. Neato. We can play twister and things and hopefully not get really awkward in front of people who we won't recognise and have never met.

And also, laugh at each other's accents.
(Hey I don't really 'get' american food so would it be rude if I brought my own to nibble on :0 I've seen the ingredients on a Jif peanut butter label. Seriously guys what's wrong with you it's just peanuts+oil+salt?? If I wanted molasses and 50 different E numbers I would have put them on my crackers myself??)

So is it too early to post wishlists, or in my case anti-wishlists?

I'm going to be in New York sometime in January Very Happy
Spoiler:
I'm really nervous and scared about it.
And new York is basically america, it can't be more than, like, a 5 hour drive to it's house right??

I'm assuming iT is from the U.S because on the internet everybody is from the U.S???

Pointless question marks????

I've already been pushing for Spark to go to college with Nelly and Misc, like University of Texas or something.

Anyways, I don't think I'll have enough time before Christmas to get far enough in the game to even SEE a level 50, so I think I'll be one of those who's restricted to Gen V. Sad

I'll take anything that looks interesting to battle with, and maybe could replace something in my B2 team that I already posted in my Teambuilding thread.

Personally I'd find it easiest if we got rid of the level 50 rule so I could join in the Gen 6 trade but whatevs. If I knew where the breeding was in Gen 6, I could give somebody an interesting EV-trained baby.

*sniff* I thought of how we hardly got even a little into secret Santa number 1and we already lost cloudninja Sad

And given probability

In ten years time at least one more person here will be mia/presumed dead Sad or just actually dead. 
Those were my sad thoughts ;_; look both ways when you're crossing the street guys!
I'm convinced we've 'lost' CN in the definite sense, it was just too abrupt Sad

I'm totally doing that thing where you grab your knees and rock back and forth slowly and stare into the distance.
You know, mentally.
