I must be crazy.

After successfully EV training my beloved Feebas in a matter of about five hours (not bad for a first attempt, huh? Lots of time searching, breeding and planning, though.) I've turned my attention to Togepi: as a child, I always wanted my own. As an adolescent getting into Pokemon obsessively all over again, I fell in love with Togekiss and wanted so badly to use one in my team. However, I dismissed this - until my boyfriend corrected my wistful ramblings about training one one day, informing me that when properly trained they can kick some serious ass.
That was go.
I'm now almost ready to start on my (hopefully) soon-to-be-hatched Timid Togepi. I'm praying for a female with Serene Grace and although I know I'm setting my sights a little "optimistically" I'm not sure I'm ready to settle after all of my hours spent trying already. The first hitch came as I planned and double checked the moveset and found out that Nasty Plot isn't as easy to come by as my boyfriend had made it seem - and I had to start raising and breeding all over again. I spent a lot of time at the Pokéathlon earning Heart Scales for my Feebas (Recover as a Milotic; she's already overlevelled even as a Feebas) and for Aura Sphere and Air Slash, plus one for my to-be Honchkrow as he's overlevelled for Nasty Plot. The last hitch was the fact that my Togekiss from HeartGold is male - so I had to raise the one female he'd produced of many, many Togepi - which meant raising her too so she could breed.
Right now, I'm just about to go and sort out my Murkrow and drop him off at the daycare with Togetic. My only wish would be that one of them had the nature I want so I could at least increase my chances with an Everstone. Alas, this is rarely how statistics work. Still, at this rate I should be able to get Feebas and a Togekiss over to White soon (hopefully!).
If nothing else, I'm glad that my need to compete in the Pokéathlon made me appreciate HeartGold and all it brought once again, alongside the fact that I'm slowly learning to persevere and be patient even if I have to struggle for every little bit along the way as I have this time - two things I really haven't been great with in the past. I'm determined to do this all my way even if it means scrimping and pooling reasources through all of my games, currently without conveniently traded Pokemon from people and without cheats, even if it's the tough way and I make mistakes. I don't know why, but I just am. I feel fulfilled and determined already, which is a testament to how great something like Pokemon can really be if you're interested enough in it. It's given me a sense of determination I've never really had before and even if it's "just a game" it has played a big role at many points since my early childhood - and that still hasn't stopped. I realise this now, as weird and overly dramatic as I may sound. I suppose what I'm trying to get at is that this isn't just about my mission for a well-trained, ass-kicking Togekiss; it's also about me finally beginning to do something within these games that I never felt I was smart or patient enough to do. I guess the only problem now is that I need a way to get this Togekiss over to White too! "OTL
I guess that's it, really. I felt too invigorated not to write about it. ='D
