Okay, normally I prefer to capture my own Pokémon, rather then hatch them from eggs and raise them all the way up from level 1, but I seem to be in a rather precarious position at the moment. I also don't have an incubator, a daycare center, nor the Pokémon necessary for the breeding, but I was kind of hoping someone could help me out. Again, I normally wouldn't ask this of anyone, and I was kind of hoping the next swarm would have one of the Pokémon I'm looking for, but since the odds for that are extremely low, Ive decided to try this in hopes of a more "sure thing".
Anyway, the Pokémon I'm looking for are Skrelp and Salandit. Eggs or already hatched, it doesn't matter to me, though Id prefer already hatched if at all possible. I'm not looking for any egg moves for either of them, but Id like for both of them to be female, with modest nature. Its fine if I get turned down here, I just thought Id ask. And if anyone knows a way that I could get these two, like in the wild or something, Id really appreciate it. Ive thought long and hard about Venom's journey on this site, and he could really use these two on his team. Thanks, and I understand if I get turned down.
I hope you don't mind, I moved your request into it's own thread since the Egg Requests thread is actually for members with Daycares requesting that eggs be spawned, or in general requesting existing eggs to be hatched, by Moderators.
Now onto your request!
I'm sure you're already aware of these but I'm going to point them out anyways. You can see where you can get pokémon on ZZ with our Availability List -- though it does not include temporary things like Events, Swarms, or Trainer Shop listings. For those you just need to keep an eye out.
That being said, many shops/daycares offer breeding services. So you'd just need to take a look through some of the active members' shops/daycares and see what they have then make a specific offer with one of them. When considering what you can and maybe can't yet get access to it would be good to familiarize with the Egg Tier list; just so you know what sort of value they have.
Values are of course subjective. Many members like to be nice and give discounts'n such to spread the rarer guys around, so you could get lucky when searching for what you want! Then there's members like me who like to preserve rarities so don't tend to give out rare things cheap. As an example, I sold a Salandit Egg to Tyger a few months ago for $7000.
I would offer my daycare services to breed a Salandit Egg for you but currently my Daycare is busy up till the end of May. So hopefully someone else will come around If they don't by the time I'm done all my current daycare plans then I'd be happy to work out an egg for you.
As for Skrelp, I don't believe there is anyone on the forum with one at the moment as it only recently became possible to capture. The only way to get one is an SOS encounter at the Lake of Rage, and no one currently active is that far in the RP.
Its fine. Thanks Lamont. Sorry, I just wasn't sure where else to put my request. Anyway, I already know about all of that. Ive read the availability chart at least 6 times now. All of it, very thoroughly. Ive also read through the egg tier chart too, so I know Skrelp is a tier 4 egg, and Salandit is a tier 3 egg. I also know that Skrelp is an SOS at the lake of rage, and that no one is there yet. I was just kinda hoping that someone could help me get one sooner then that.
Still, all of this is greatly appreciated. I always do well to keep my eyes on swarms, trainer shops, and other events as well. I don't wanna bore ya with the details, but Ive got a master plan in place for Venom on this site. I'm just trying to hammer out all the complicated details as he goes, and Skrelp and Salandit are two of em. So I'm gonna keep looking for em anywhere I can, along with several other Poison types, and hope that a lucky break comes my way soon.
Thanks again Lamont. Ill be sure to message ya next time some other complication comes up if ya don't mind. Also, Id appreciate a heads up if an opportunity to obtain these two comes up. I'm always more then happy to bargain with anyone who has them, or anything else I'm looking for. Until then, I hope ya have a nice day.
For sure! There's always the possibility it could come up with a Memeber/Staff of the Month prize ;D We like to try and give T4's out for that. Or maybe in some sort of event :3
I'm also going to take this opportunity to highlight this thread: What Pokémon?
Us admin always like some feedback and ideas on what most interests the members :3 Even if it's already been said in the past, knowing what everyone wants nowadays is super helpful for deciding swarms and giveaways'n such! Besides character wish lists of course ^^
Ill keep that in mind, thanks. And yeah, I always do well to check the events and swarms. As I'm sure you noticed, Venom's wish list is all Poison types. Rare ones at that. As I said, Ive read over the availability list several times, so I'm well aware of the locations and rarities of all the Poison type Pokémon. My plan for Venom is to have him go through his journey using only Poison type Pokémon, which is why I'm so transfixed on em. That, and Ive always had a flare for Poison types. They'll always be the best to me.
So with that in mind, I already know the Poison types Id like for Venom's team. While I do love all Poison types, not just any will do. I have to take in to account for move sets for em, stats, level up, TMs, etc. Basically, Ive put a great deal of thought into Venom and his journey through this site. I'm aware that no ones ever been able to win all eight badges on this site, and I'm aiming to be the first. And Ill do it with only Poison types. I already know Croagunk and Skorupi can be found in the Safari Zone, and I don't mind waiting until then for them. Skrelp and Salandit are my real challenges.
Still, I appreciate the info. Ill leave some feedback, and hopefully something will come of it. You've been very helpful so far Lamont, and I'm grateful for it. Once more, thank you very much for all your help and advice.
