IceHippo - Just wanted to say congrats on "unburdening" yourself telling us your PKMN history ^_^
Agreed, Joseph-B2, it's never easy admitting something like that. I know I would have trouble, especially since I was often picked on (beaten, even) in the past even without stating my interests. Doing so would've isolated me further. I really owe to to sites like this who have people who share common interests to allow me to emerge from my dark corner. While I may not have any physical friends (borderline obsessive paranoia is a very strange and disabling thing), at least I have a place here. So kudos on your resolve.
EDIT: Whoops, forgot to mention this before submitting it. My Platinum Team is finally ready. While Spiritomb still needs to be raised a bit more, for the most part, my team is set. Almost all the Pokemon used are based off of my "Battle From the Heart" story (which is slowly being written), with the exception of two: Gliscor and Gastrodon (East Sea) (though, originally, both or at least one were going to be used, but I felt I wouldn't be able to develop their characters well enough with so many other Pokemon involved). So I'm now ready to go. I'll be giving them a test run using Battle Revolution to see how they fare in that before using them for this group. After that, if anyone wants to battle using Gen IV, go right ahead and ask.
Excadrill is one of my favorite pokemon! But I don't want to repeat teams since I had him Black I'm going to go with Darumaka because I really wanted one in Black but I started with Tepig and didn't want two fire types
Don't worry, bud, you're in good company ^_^
By the way, I started reading your fan fiction the other day and was enjoying Chapter 1 =D Well done!
@Joseph-B2; Thanks for the kind words, both on the subject of closet common interests and the story series. It's still a work in progress, as I'm only up to chapter 4 (written wise, post wise, only on chapter 2), and as my first Pokemon fic, I'm still ironing out small details and flaws, but I appreciate the feedback.
Newest Pokemon: .... Jynx.....
Jynx terrified me as a child. It's just so... bizarre. Yet I still used it in Silver. I was pretty desperate to beat Clair and her freaking Kingdra.
Not a big jynx fan either.
My newest is a Prankster Liepard. A fun pokemon to use by annoying oponent with swagger, thunder wave etc.

... Liepard has that, right?
Yes but Prankster Liepard is all about Swagger, Thunderwave, Substitute and Foul Play.
basically making the enemy kill itself while you sit behind a substitute with your evil Liepard grin. Ok alot of the time it gets 1shot before its evil plan is properly going but is such fun when it works out. :D
Generally I love anything that is about generally emo raging the opponent rather than winning.
