» OOC: Trading Gladiator the Shelmet for a Rare candy Silverwing13
Max had self identified after competing in the Bug Catching Contest that he possessed little to no interest in keeping the Shelmet that he had captured and finished in second place with. As fate would have it, a lady by the name of Melinda Rosewind was eagerly searching for a Shelmet to add to her arsenal and had been posting online in search of one.
Max knew that his recently acquired Shelmet was still young and had plenty to learn but the potential that it possessed to be a dominant pokemon in battle was ever present, that potential just wasn't going to be recognised and unlocked by Max. Max was content with his current team of pokemon and knew that he would be able to get something that would benefit him in return while also giving the lady the pokemon she was seeking. Max simply was after anything that could make his current team stronger, so an item such as rare candy as Melinda had offered would suit perfectly.
