Happy Monday to all!  It is my second to last day at my current job, and I'm excited to start my career as an art teacher again later this week as my first day at the new school on Thursday.

I have a one day summer vacation later this week on Wednesday as it is the only day between the end of my previous job and the start of my new position.  Anyone who has a suggestion of what I should do with my 24 hours of freedom, please send them my way.

The Dokes

That's right, the Dokes are coming.  By that I most certainly mean the Dokemun.

A Krookodile named Hook

Here is the 3rd installment of Dokemun's Party. Today we will be discussing my Krookodile affectionately named Hook. Like the crocodile in Peter Pan. His is surprisingly fast.

Now it is time to talk about the IVs of my Krookodile. This was actually one of the first 'mons I ever EV trained. At the time I know very little about IVs and I had no idea how to accurately check them. Now that I can clearly see his IVs I'm quite impressed with just how fast Hook is. I was lucky to find a Sandie with a high, natural speed. I'm also pretty satisfied with his 22 attack and 26 special attack.

I think that it is important for my team to have a quick, dark 'mon to counter any psychic Pokemon I may encounter. As you can see I have EV trained my Krookodile in speed and I don't expect many 'mons to act before Hook. Since his speed EV is raised by 252 he is truly one of the fastest 'mons I have.

I also EV trained his attack by 254 on top of an IV of 22. It's not topped out, but it is definitely respectable. As you can also see his attacks are all physical in nature. I have considered replacing swagger with a special attack but for now I'll keep him as a physical sweeper. I also like having bulldoze, which gets Hook out of the way when I use surf in a doubles match. That has come in handy with my current doubles team. More on that later.

My Shiny Axew named Chuck

I wanted to take a look at specific Pokemon of mine and explain how I plan to grow them, EV them and then us them in my game. I thought this might be a fun addition to the blog. I plan on doing posts about every major 'mon I use in my current Pokemon Black game.

I got this printout from Pokecheck, a fake-GTS stat recorder. I have included a link in the name for your convince. I have found this website VERY useful for checking the stats, IVs and EVs of my 'mons. It was also valuable when configuring my pprng program as I needed my SID and had no way to get it. I highly suggest using Pokecheck for anyone interested in breeding or RNG'ing their Pokemon.

I think that it is important to note the date that the egg was received/hatched. As you can see the egg was both received and hatched on October 12th, 2012 (a date in the future). I have been working on RNG training my Pokemon. There are several useful tutorials available out there on and I may write a post about it in the future but for now I will entertain myself with talking about my current 'mons.

Chuck is the first of my RNG'ed 'mon who I have to EV trained and plan to level up for my team. I plan on creating a series of trained 'mons with maxed IV stats and EV'ed to taste for my competitive team. Silly thing is that I do not currently competitively battle in Pokemon. Maybe once I have a full team I will.

RNG'ed some Shines

I just wanted to make a post to say I was finally successful at RNG'ing some shines over the weekend. My first was a female Woobat with the wrong IV'ed stats, but shiny never the less. Then I went on to catch a 3 Mienfoos. Lastly I was able to egg breed 3 shiny Axews but with the wrong natures. But it was still major progress. Here is some info on the 3 different types of pokes I was able to RNG.
