Alright! It's that time again guys, giveaway time! In honor of Summer Scramble, I have three awesome giveaways for everyone. Read up on 'em and I hope you all enjoy them! All Pokémon are CLONES**. -Battle Ready Weather Mons- So I will be running three giveaways! Alright guys, for my first giveaway, I’ll be giving everyone their choice of one battle ready Pokémon. These Pokémon were bred and raised by me and have all been hyper trained! Each Pokémon is based off of a set from smogon, to be specific, VGC18. Each Pokémon will have an item and are at level 100. All of these Pokémon are clones of Pokémon I personally bred and raised, so keep that in mind. And now, here are your choices. Spoiler: Pokémon Available -Pelipper- Set: Drizzle Moves: Hurricane/ Scald/ Tailwind/ Protect Held Iem: Damp Rock Suggested Item: Focus Sash/ Damp Rock Ability: Drizzle Nature: Modest EVs: 4HP/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe Ball: Beast Ball -Tyranitar- Set: Trick Room Attacker Moves: Rock Slide/ Crunch/ Ice Punch/ Protect Item: Smooth Rock Suggested item: Darkinium Z/ Weakness Policy Ability: Sand Stream Nature: Brave EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Atk/ 4 Def Ball: Friend Ball -Ninetales- Set: Naty Plot Wallbreaker Moves: Nasty Plot/ Fire Blast/ Solar Beam/ Hidden Power (Ice) Item: Heat Rock Suggested Item: Firium Z Ability: Drought Nature: Timid EVs: 252 SpA/ 4 SpD/ 252 Spe Ball: Dream Ball -Alolan Ninetales- Set: Hail Setter Moves: Blizzard/ Freeze Dry/ Aurora Veil/ Protect Item: Light Clay Suggested Item: Focus Sash/ Light Clay Ability: Snow Warning Nature: Timid EVs: 4HP/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe Ball: Moon Ball Special Information Spoiler: Special Information All of these Pokémon are ready to rumble and would do great on weather teams and in Tyranitar’s case a trick room team. I wanted to cover all of the bases on the weather angle but still offer something slightly different than usual. Also note that at least three of these mons can be transferred to sword and shield should anyone choose to get it. Not a bad tie in eh? Now there is a fifth Pokémon to this giveaway. During the process of breeding the Kantonian Vulpix for the ninetails, I accidentally bred a shiny with hidden power ice! I have trained it up to match the regular version and even hyper trained it! The winning team of the summer scramble will all receive a Shiny Ninetales during the month of August if the so desire, but only the winners. -Shinies For the Future- Now For the Second Giveaway! Despite all the bad news we have received about Sword And Shield, some of us are still excited for the new games and what they can still offer us. To celebrate Summer Scramble and to tie into the fun and excitement surrounding the new switch games, I am giving everyone on Lake Valor a choice of not one, but TWO shinies that can be transferred to sword and shield. Every shiny is one that I either got through an event, a trade, catching, or through accidental masuda method breeding. I have a choice between six Pokémon, each untrained and unevolved. Here are your choices.

Also, all Pokémon are clones so please keep that in mind. -Release the Tapus! ALL THE TAPUS!!!- So, this is one of the giveaways I’ve REALLY been waiting to do and I did mention it a month or so ago as a possibility for a giveaway. This took some effort on my part because I had to compete in three online tournaments, get the codes, download the Pokémon, and soft reset until I got something worthwhile. The good news is I got some decent Pokémon! So now to get down to business. Everyone in the Summer Scramble gets a full set of four shiny tapus, everyone else gets two shiny tapus of their choice. Here are the Pokémon in question.
